Highlight of the Day(more Halloween)

Non-stop Halloween parties! Last Saturday we already went to the Residents Halloween party, then Sunday they went to another party held by one of my lady employer’s friend. Today, we went trick or treating around the compound. It was actually fun because not only the kids are in costumes but the parents and even the…

The Horror of being a Human

What is the horror of being a human? What is scarier than ghosts, monsters or spirits? What makes us humans more fearing than any other beings in the world? Is it our ego that spooks others with bigger egos to topple each other to the top? Isn’t greed more chilling than the creatures that lurks…

Highlight of the Day(walking/food trip)

It’s Sunday again and this time only my Mom and I were off. My sister’s off is 2 Saturdays and 2 Sundays so next week will be her Sunday off. Anyway, as I went to a party the night before I woke up a bit late so we attended the 11:30 mass after which there…

Conformity

I have always taken comfort in conformity. I know it’s a mistake, I have to step up. But self-doubt has always taken over me. My response to every favor is a nod. My reaction to a disagreement is just a smile. Though my head is full of rebuttals, I choose silence rather than war.

Highlight of the Day(Halloween Carnival 2016)

It was 7pm and I was silently tucked in my room thinking that I would be finishing up early. Then out of the blue my lady employer came rushing in from their walk telling me that she forgot that today is the halloween party, she thought that it was tomorrow. She shyly asked me if…

I was wrong

If you were in such a haste, why’d you stop by and say Hi? Why’d you have to leave something to remember you by? Why’d you let your name be forever carved in my heart? I was patient, I was waiting for the right moment. Then you came, You brought sunshine to my gloomy day….

Highlight of the Day(Patience)

In the world of the weary, the art of patience is tough. We want everything to be fast, express, a one-stop shop. We consider the old woman in front of us a nuisance because she walks slowly or the kid who is very grumpy for no reason at all and we choose it ignore it….

The One?

With billions of people in the world, How does one find “The One”? Is he that man crossing the street? Or that lady waiting for a cab? Is he someone you’ve known all your life? Or that woman you brushed shoulders with at the tram? Would you have guessed who it would be? Or were…

Highlight of the Day(Random Thoughts)

As I was walking towards the bus stop coming from my Mom’s place, I came across these bunch of crowd hustling and bustling. I wondered where they were going, where they were heading, who’re they meeting, and just what were they thinking. Most of us will just pass by one another and won’t even glance…

Blank, blank, blank

  Nothing more to write nothing more to think Nothing more left but this blank piece of sheet Where has the inspiration gone? Where has the motivation been? Will it just end here or just needs some space?

Highlight of the Day(living healthy)

  The food above is the lunch of my employer’s 16-year-old son. She said that he decided to change his diet into healthier choices and her mom was more than willing to prepare it for him. I really am proud of him and I actually envy his decisions at such a young age. When I…

You are You

  You’ve been shut up many times, You’ve been treated less like a human, You’ve been mocked for what you look like. Still, you get up each morning and smile at the sky. You’ve been born special, You’ve been born unique, You’re still a blessing no matter what they say, You don’t need their approval,…
