At the age of six, I was only on kindergarten wherein now at that age you could be on the primary level. By that time, schooling for me is lots of fun. Why not? You have nothing to do but read and write, sing & dance and make friends. I'm the apple of the eye of everyone in the family. It pleases me to know that I am their favorite. They loved me very much. I please not only my father & mother, but I'm also a star for my grandparents. My grandfather used to hugged me, kissed me and pinched my nose. He also gave me coins which I really loved. A single peso from him will give me happiness. Surely, he is the best; but I terribly misses him. Month before my graduation, he passed away. He died in the hands of merciless people. In the eyes of the child, seeing him with blood is morbid. In the mind of the child, it will be a haunting nightmare. In the heart of the child, it is a torture. And I am that child. How could I taste the sweetness of little success if a part of it has been already taken? How could I accept that the ribbon I received is a ribbon for the dead?
His kindness and memories were all to remain...
On the next graduation I topped in the class yet the last year event has brought all the sorrow. On elementary graduation, I am the valedictorian yet the six years of forgetting the pain wasn't enough. In high school, I graduated with flying colors yet another four years of hardships cannot erase the smear of past. Now, one more year and another graduation will come. For fourteen years, I'm almost over grief but it was replaced by worry. Losing my grandmother is one of my greatest fear. The words she has spoken to me seriously makes me afraid and worried:"My child, each day I'm getting weaker and weaker. Mere walking is already a sacrifice. Soon, I'll be resting with your grandfather." Will the coming graduation bring me almost the same tragedy? Is the worst yet to come? Will fate play the same game against me? Let's hope not; I hope not and pray hard. On my graduation day I don't want my tears to play its part for mourning. If I'll cry, it will be for joy and thanksgiving. I want my family to be complete, because for me, success alone is another failure.........

The Valentines Day

This is my first contribution to one of my closest sisters in this world. Since it is Valentines day today, I will share my opinion about the love month. I was supposed to have a date with my boyfriend today but he was not around... (unlucky that he was too busy for his thesis). But even he's with me right now, I would rather spend an ordinary day because Valentines day is not the only day to show affection to your loved ones. I strongly disagree on giving flowers, dates, and chocolates every February 14 because apart from it, the true meaning of Valentines has been forgotten. Simple yet clear, we must understand that what truly counts is not only the day "Valentine" but also its spirit. We must show 'em that every day is a love day... and we acknowledge the persons that truly cares for us.

As for me, I'd spend my day in my daily routine.. go to the office, work, have lunch with my pals here and then go home at 5pm. No more malling, cuz I know places right now are crowded with thousands of love birds. I'd just be stuck with them. My girlfriends and I supposed to have an all-girl out but we haven't talked it the last time around. Well, I suppose that me and my roommates will spend the evening by just hanging around and do the same things we do inside our palace.

Well, valentines as for my understanding still loses its meaning to those persons who doesn't truly understand how to show affection not only on every february 14th of the month. But still, I am happy seeing people loving each other even for a day... :0)

What's remarkable about February??? Hmmm, it has something to do with the number of days in a year - whether it is a leap year or not. Well, did you know that some believes that people born on this month are said to be abnormal? Not abnormal in the sense that they have disabilities, physically or mentally; if you know what I mean. (Cge n nga, wat i min s Kulang2 daw!). But what makes others excited during this month is The VALENTINES DAY.
