Forever

I watch the day end
See after the day long
People made the world proud of
Events that rattle the world

I see myself in despair
But I erased it in my mind
I have to be brave
Fame is what I need

Time goes by
But I stand still
So for eternity
The meant I destined to be

I stepped thgrough time
For a limitless at all times
This is my desdtiny because ...
I am forever.
***************************************
This poem is supposed to be more polished... I want a more polished version of this poem bcoz I feel that it is nonsense and more ideas could add up here. Timely written few days before New Year, I really wanted to this as a stand that I myself is "forever" even as the year ends, no matter what happens and time passes by.
As 2005 approaches, this could be my last post for this year , the next would be next year! New Year wishes? Of course to be more mature person and Christ-centered life and faith (I hope so...) and of course another prosperous year of 2005, more get together with friends and family, triumph in my studies and a lot more. New Year's resolution... a lot... maybe again to be a more mature person like my resolution last year and change some "dislikes" in my personality (I hope so...)
2004 is a fantastic year, I have a lot of things accomplish, speaking of accomplishments - my documentation of Athens 2004 Olympics is already been bookbind, I hope my fan fiction of Sailor Moon would be finished soon before the end this year. There are so many things happened and so many things also changed. But I'm thankful that everything goes well & smooth this year (though there are hardtimes w/c is never without) I had a fantastic year of 2004 and 'hope in 2005 I had another fantastic year. Happy New Year everyone!

Special Kind of Love

Special Kind of Love

I never had this feeling inside
Last long and never died
I know I never thought
This is the one I sought

Taking my breath away is the feeling
In a world of silver lining
With you, their and my friends
A lovely day as it ends

Happiness never surpass that I felt
In my heart was an eternal wealth
The laughter we share there is always
As all of us has own special ways

Full of life at all
Even I fall
Together we sail the life
As if no more night

The world we all belong
Like melody and sound to a song
A part of life as miracle
As I live in this forever circle.
********************************************
From the title itself you would thought this as a love poem but its all about friendship... and its one of the most important things in this world. I wrote this last December 26, 2001 with inspirations from friendship with my friends and best memories with them. Friendship with my friends is one of the best gift I've received this Christmas. Merry Christmas!

Echoes of Caressing Cry

Echoes of Caressing Cry

A river of emotion within me flows
A burst of affection slowly grows
While I ponder
Dreamy in a wonder

My thoughts were in delight
But in my heart, there is firelight
Its warm is conquering my body in uproar
A warm I never felt before

Though I deny
Blue-sky is in my eye
Felicity is swimming in my vein
And bliss to this feelings play in my brain

I conceal it every bit
Hide it
But its voice reaches my surface
To see this through my face

I try to cover this emotion
So, I cast it away in my notion
Yet, it whispers in my ear
Conveying a voluptuous music from balladeer

I thought it would sweep
If I had one sleep
But I was wrong in haste
For even sleep I cannot taste

In every move, I can feel the passion
The strong feeling runs in my blood and wants my submission
It succumbs my whole being
Now, I cannot resist it anymore this feeling

Though I bury it
Though I conceal it
I cannot conquer it anymore
This feeling puts me in torment more and more

I close my eyes
In the silence of my heart and mind it unties
There is a cry
A cry burdens my heart and mind to be crucify

I cannot subdue it anymore
It’s you my heart cries for more
But who will knew it out of blue?
When is every act I do there is no echo that I love you.
********************************************************
Christmas is coming soon, have you already bought your gifts and made a shopping spree? Well, its been a long time since my last post, well here is poem that I'm surely everyone would love... its about secret love or courting someone loved... you decide. I wrote this poem last December 1, 2003, I hope you like. Merry Christmas!

Poignant

Leave me alone
I don't want to moan
To feel it again to myself
Self-destruct? I didn't wish that
I defy that in my way
Away, from all torment and quarrels

Not even milestone in life
Consequence..............
Irritation...................
All failed, for it is suffering sharp
Once to feel it will never gone
Not quick...................
Emotions sadden and stress
Had not all released from
Deep imprint in mine

Impossible to resist
As grief start to undercover
In this situation
Vibrations are break circuit
Torn apart inside of me
Sharp and sudden it is
But still it painfully affecting the feeling
in blue..................
lost........................
*********************************************
Poignant is about painful feelings kept inside that hurt affects your whole personality. Though you want it to be lost, in blue, the pain isn't fading away. I wrote it last February 8, 2001. Comments and reactions are welcomed.

The Graveyard

The Graveyard

I find solace among the stones
Where silence is shattering
Where wind is whispering
And all were cold

I find solitude among the stones
And there are withered leaves brushes more
And wall that were cold
Reveals the still loneliness is bold

I find courage among the stones
Where fear is gone
Which mold me stronger in time
Now my thoughts are sublime

I find bliss among the stones
There is no gloomy day
They never speak secrets I conceal
And speak only laughter to send my cries away

I find comfort among the tones
Amidst in seclusion and loneliness, I never felt sorrow
I never felt agony anymore
The pain that tore upon me were no more

I find silence among the stones
In their silence there is no rejection
In their silence they ease my disturb emotion
In their silence they console me

I find death among the stones
For there is silence in their cold
Taking away all my pain and suffering
And all were cold.

For Life

for Life

It's great to have a wonderful life
Freedom and bliss oneself
Free to fly on the blue sky
Outcast none in the society

You can run on the meadows
No dictation to what you are doing
Ravel never be the same again
Just taste the life given to all

Serene and tranquil
With melody, harmony and image I have
Look at silver lining and I’m filled within
Calmness I felt not quarrelsome

Now I wake in verity
And feel the quench and zest of life
Vivid, colorful and lively life is
For life is for everybody, anybody, everyone, anyone, somebody and someone.
*********************************************************************

Creation Story

Creation Story

Yesterday we finally presented our theatrical play for Art Appreciation subject but the blog might date this as Oct. 2 late for one day (they might be using the US time) After late night practices and 2 am sleeping we finally end it and guess what we won the 3rd place for the play!
Maybe you would be wondering why the title is "Creation Story" well, I am the one who created the story for our play entitled "Jaws of the Night" but conflicts started in the script... everyone has their own versions of the script. I also had conflicts with this group play leaders but I took the initiative to be not aloof with them and finally settle the problem bec. I want everything to be ok before we present my story on Saturday... I don't want to be aloof and watch them doing my story. And finally its was entitled "Liwanag" for a more Filipino flavor theme.

Now the problem was settled let me chronicle to you what happened 2 days before the play and fun memories during our last practices...

Day 1, Thursday, September 30
This was the first time I joined them with the practice now in Tanghalan since I became aloof with them starting Monday when we have a conlict on script in Saturday. It was stressful and fun. I'm helping them directing on the stage when they perform as our direct were on the backseats directing. There are still so many things and sets need to be polished. We ended the practice at 8pm... the school around was dark! were the only ones left, Worrying if there are still buses going home I joined with Aimee and Rea my classmates who are going to the same way to our town so I got company. Aimee left us in Bacoor bec. she was residing there and I'm left with Rea who resides in Noveleta. I finally got home and tired at 10pm.

Day2, Friday, October 1
Last day of our practice in Brothers House Residence... we were there at 3pm but our director is still in Indang so we wait longer. While waiting, Nagi decided to make funshots of her from her cell camera. I was taking the picture while Nagi was enjoying to pose like a model. I enjoy taking shots bec. we were doing nothing in the practice I'm bored there. We had our practice in 6 p.m. 'til nine p.m. That was really my late stay stay in the campus everything was really dark but we manage to practice and I came home at 11p.m. So tired...

Day 3, Saturday October 2
The day of presentation
Well we wake up early because the start of the presentation is 8 am... well, I'm nervous and because of that I wasn't able to eat a launch, my nerves under my calfs were also shaking. We had our general practice with the props and ligths. Then the start of the presentation... actually we were the last presenter of the pla.. were the 6th. The pressure was really on the backstage because I was there and I am assigned as the floor director. Our director, production staff and lights were in the lighting section, we were just communicating through the communicator ( a device like the telephone operators used) I felf "Wow!!!!", it was amazing its like I'm a real diractor on a stage play. But back with the pressure in the backstage, the play turned out good and superb. The backround sounds were superd and the artist acts were best level performance, although we make some mistakes in the execution of changing props causing quite long airgaps in the entire play. But everything turned out just fine. After the show everybody was happy in the backstage and hugging. I went to the ligthsbooth to see other major staffs... everyone was greeting for the success of the play. I hug Sheila (our director) for the success of the play.
Now in the awarding ceremony... I was thankful already for the successful staging of the play but much blessing came when we were announced as the 3rd placer in the event. I was so happy coming up in the stage with Rizza ( who played 'Serpentia' one of the main characters in the play) to get our trophy, the PSY crowd went in cheers and shouts as I looked at them from the staged. I waved the trophy just what like an Olympic gold winner does in awarding ceremony... I felt I am an Olympic winner!
Right now.. I still have a hang over of our play. I'm so happy. I would also like to use this opportunity to thank all of the staff... from the artists, props, lights to documentation staff for the success of the play. Thank you PSY32 because of ur cooperation and work my story comes alive. For writers like me it doesn't matter to win or nor, to have credit or not but to stage a masterpiece that I created is so much meaning to me. Thank you especially to the artist becuase I never thought those characters that are only in my imagination will come alive through your cooperation... especially to my favorite characters... Nikita, Lionica and Serpentia whom I expected a beast level preformance... thank you because of you they have come alive. Thank you very much.
You know I'll never forget this... I will really never forget this, though there are so much pressure I would still wish to make this event happen again. Maraming salamat.

Touch

Touch

A simple touch
That I can't hide in a pouch
I feel the soft hands
Touch my hand, my soft hand

A simple touch
Let my heart feel felicity
Burn my feelings in pleasure
Release my burden, I felt for sure

A simple touch
Gives a great meaning to me
We meant to be, I feel
In my mind and heart no one can peel

A simple touch
Made me mad thinking of you
Remember, you come to me to touch
Touch me, as I feel lying with you in a couch

One of my inspired poems created last March 27, 2000.

Sparkle

Sparkle

I am flashing, shining
Glittering star in the sky I belong
No one can reach me for so long
For I am brighter than the sun's lining

The world is where fame
I'm stardom to be lively
And brilliant and not lame
A precious gem so lovely

Shine, gleam and glisten as jewels
As I'm higher than the rest
But God is powerful than the pest
Myself is vivacity deep as wells

Having a vivid personality I see my sight
Appealing and shinning star
Star that not stop at the gate of Ishtar
Symbolizing the diamonds I might.
**************************************
Actually, I intend to post this poem on the 22nd of this month because to this was created in September 22, 2000...more than four years ago, but due to our conflict in my script in our project for Art Appreciation I wasn't able to post it. Anyway, about the poem... this is self-theme poem but I'm not looking at myself as a "star" I just want to "sparkle" on everyone... I know each of us want to be a star but not all of us can be a star but to sparkle we can.

Red Lips

Red Lips

I don't know how we met
But now were companion
You always play clown to me
An amusing jester to be

As time pass by
Only see your remarkable face
To your red lips
That gives me joy, only your charming lips

From that moment
I always want to see you
And longing want to be with you
So I desire to follow you

I hunger for your kiss
To your red lips, in bliss
Perfectly shape and smooth
Overflowing with sweetness and emotion

All night I dream of you
A dream with you
Only for you my heart beats
Your name it utters

Then we met again
I can't resist your red lips
It hungers me for the sweetest kiss
So I pulled you to kiss

And drink all of you
Closing my eyes to feel you
The smoothness of your soft lips
The hot and sweetness it bestows

I'm here with you
Staring at your red lips
Once I've kissed but I'm longing for another
Another one, from your red lips
*************************************************
One of my fave poems of all time created in March 15, 2000... its about discovering how sweet it is to kiss especially to kiss red lips... oh those are one of my romantic fantasies.

Spectacles

Starring at the glasses
Only thinking of you
Seeing many kinds of glasses
But I only see faces of you

First we saw each other
You left and forget your glasses to me
I thought you didn't bother
The glasses that I kept inside of me

I always pictured you in my mind
Always dreaming of you
Cause I have feelings for you behind
That I want to say like hue

I wait until we meet again
I'm filled with joy and excitement
When we became friends and release all my pain
That time is an unforgettable moment

And now, I'm here starring
In glasses that glimpse and glitter
Thinking of you and meaning
You are mine forever.

last updates in Olympics...

Too bad I wasn't able to watch the whole closing ceremony of Olympics. I've only watch a middle part and I wasn't able to finish it because My favorite show in the other channel was showing at the same time. Too bad it was the reply and I wan't able to watch, the original live fed was about 3 in the morning - how I can watch it when it is the wee hours for sleeping.

Anyway the show was great ans fastatstic as the opening ceremony. There Greek presentation and Eros again was in the show. After few speeches, a video from large screen was shown. It show the people of Beijing welcoming the Olympics. Beijing will be the next Olympic host in 2008. After that a lot of Chinese presentation followed and eveything was in Chinese!!! The backround light was jive with the presentations as it rays a bright red color, the color of China. Then the handling of the Olympic flag followed with a thurderous cheers from the crowd. The lighting out of the torch was somewhat emotional for Greece, a child came and get light from it and lit the lights of the Chinese children ( a turn over for Beijing). Then she walk away then she turn back, she said, "I will see you again" and blow an air and the fire from the towering torch died out. It was amazing! Greek star singers followed after as the athletes were happy and dancing in the celebration. And that was the last thing I saw.

I've read from the newspaper today that Alina Kabaeva of Russia won the gold, she was a bronze medallists in 2000. The bidding for the 2012 Olympics also opened and one of the candidate city is Moscow. I hope Moscow will win the bid to host the 2012 games. It would be a great Olympics because the Russians will now rule the game. Anyway the host city for 2012 will be chosen next year... 2005 of July... that is quite long to wait for.

I've also started to complete my compilation for Athens 2004... I think I've already made 30 plus page.

Team Philippines ended in Athens empty-handed for the 2nd time but they made improvements unlike in Sydney 2000 it is far from mediocre. The Filipina athletes shines like Jasmin to place 27th in Archery and Toni Rivero almost to the medals place. Well, another 4 years of waiting for Beijing, they have to train and prepare more for the next Olympics. We improve and who knows we may bag the elusive gold medal in Beijing. Maybe were really not meant to win this time but I still believe that our time will come... who knows in Beijing 2008!

Athens 2004 Olympics was a great sports event and celebration of humanity. The triumphs... the excitement... the struggles... everything was fantastic. So I hope that four years from now I will see another great spectacle from Beijing. That time I will be 23 years old but I will wait for this another great sports celebration that is my all-time favorite. See you in Beijing 2008!

Selfish

0 comments
"Selfish" is the episode of this blog. Why? Here...

The team Philippines finally ended its quest for the medals in Athens games. Our taekwondo jins failed to win the any medals in the last days of the game. We had a good fight with Donald Geisler and Toni Rivero but I felt we've been "cheated" in the fight. A lot of kicks was thrown to the opponent but it didn't count a score especially the fight of Rivero to a Greek favored by the hometown crowd. Toni Rivero mede her fall the Greek to her kness 2 times by throwing her out of the court and there was no deduction of points to the Greek! A lot of kicks by Rivero were thrown but can you imagine the result was 1-2. Rivero's game was third bout a semifinal for the gold match and it lost. She went to bag the bronze but lost to a Korean jin. Geisler was given a chance for the bronze after a lost in the first bout which is a miracle but he was injured in the his 2nd fight and rushed him to the hospital, so the Tunisian opponent won. And after these fights I felt "cheated". Cheated to not win... I felf they're "selfish" because they didn't let Philippines to bag a medal even a bronze they didn't allow us to have... they don't want to share a medal, I felt we're been deprived to win a medal... I felt they're selfish...

In the women's volleyball finals, Russia was defeated by the surprising in of China for the gold medal. I can't believe Russia lost in 5 set event that I think the best fight I ever saw. It was heart-wrenching, thrilling and energy-filled. I saw Ekaterina Gamova, the star of the Russian team and my fave player broke to tears when they lost (I also want to broke in tears, too). You know why? I think they've been waiting for this event for Cuba not to enter the finals bec. Cuba is their long been rival for the gold since Sydney 2000. And their came empowered China and stole they're dream. I think she also cried bec. of frustration and maybe is she going to retire and she want to taste the gold before she left the team. But I hope she won't retire... she still young and who know's after 4 years in Beijing they won! They've also been deprived to win for their long gold dream... selfish.

I also recently knew that Cuba beat Brazil, the team famed Leila Barros and Ericka Coimbra for the bronze medal which the Brazilians won in 2000. Too bad they didn't able to defend their medal... selfish. My fave Russian gymnast Svetlana Khorkina was going to retire this year and this is going to be her last Olympic stint... too bad she didn't won gold but at least a silver. She was hoping for a gold for the last time but failed... selfish.

US after beaten surprisingly by Argentina for the finals beat Lithuania for the bronze... too bad the Lithuanians also didn't able to depend their bronze last 4 years. And I've also noticed NBN4 is biased in feed about basketball event they just show events where US is in fight!

After the team Philippines stint in Olypics, I really felt "selfish" Maybe were really not meant to win this time. I think another four years for more practice of our athletes... I believe there is time for eveything like the Chile and Dominican Republic to win their first gold this time, I believe our time also will come... we'll see in Beijing.

My next post will be the last updates in Olympics.

Frustrated

0 comments
Last day, I've watched an exciting women's volleyball quarterfinal match of Russia against Korea in Athens 2004 games. I hate NBN4 they've just shown the women's volleyball event only in its quartelfinal event! I finally saw my favorite team Russia... of course the Russian team in volleyball won in straight sets over the Koreans in the match. They are the superpower in women's volleyball along with Cuba and Brazil.

I also finally saw my favorite Russian player Ekaterina Gamova, who is the tallest among the group and contrasting to her height becuase she is the yougest of them. I've also notice that there are new players in the team... I don't know some of them, the names of Godina and others were not there already as those were the players I know when they played here in Manila several years ago for Grand Prix. Gamova was the star of that game as her spikes can't escape the opponents in the court. She was also known for her trademark that when she is the blocker the ball will bounce back again to the opponents' court... maybe becuase of her height... I think she is 7ft. Well, team Russia is way to go for the gold... Go Russia!!!

Today, I've watched the duets syncronised swimming and that was a great event show! Russia prove again its superiority in this event as they won the event duplicating the feat they did in Sydney 2000. Russia is simple in performance but their moves syncronised to the sound of the music made them won with an almost perfect score of 99. something. Japan came second and proven again that it's woth in the event. They also have a unique presentation... jumping to the pool in a kung fu style! Third was USA which I beleive they don's deserve becuase the players were pirated from the Russian team. USA is really trying hard! They pirated from the former Russian team to have an entrant in the event. I also think that they're not deserving becuase others were more superd than their presentation like France, Greece, Ukraine and Switzerland to mention. Unfortunately, the duet France failed to defent their bronze title in Sydney which eventually went to pirated USA! Anyway, I'm looking forward to see the team event and see if Russia conquers again.

I felt frustrated and disappointed in the evening when I watched taekwondo bet of Philippines Tshomlee Go lost in his first bout with Spain with only one point lead, can you imagine???. I am really frustrated and disappointed because he didn't win... his is our lasts hopes for the medals. Oh, I hope the other jins will win in their bout in Saturday. This is another "fading stars" for the team Philippines... I am really disappointed.

Fading stars

0 comments
If there is a suitable title episode for this entry of my blog, the title would be "fading stars".
Well, it is because of what's happening in Olympics after a beautiful opening ceremony last week. My last entry here was last week which is the update about the opening of Athens games and which is also quite long. Anyway, here's my update in Olympics...

The so-called 'fading stars' is team Philippines. Our medal hopes are fading... yes we improve records in swimming but no athlete made it to the medal rounds and in boxing we lost in the first two boxer athletes and have a good start with other two, I'm talking about Brin and Tanamor but in their next bout they lost, fading our campaign for the gold.

The surprise in the Philippine team is Jasmine Figueroa's 'miracle tale' who beat world champion and medalists Natalia Valeeva of Italy in Archery. However, the 'miracle stale' was short when she was edged by Spain's Almudena Gallardo by two points in the next round. By the way, Jasmine was also 2-point lead against Valeeva. Though she didn't make it to the finals she made a breaking record to be the highest ranking Filipino in Archery, she place 27th in the field of 64 athletes. Now, that was a good improvement but I'm still hoping for the gold medal. I've seen awarding ceremonies and I think I'll feel good and proud if a Filipino athlete would be standing there, receive the gold and the national anthem would be play as the national flag is being raised. I think if that would happen I might cry. I hope our athletes in taekwondo and athletics will bring home the gold or any medal in the coming weeks of competition, there are the only Filipino athletes left for the gold medal and glory campaign.

Things really change after 4 years... I don't know what's happening to team Russia... they're not dominating the medal tallies and they were left behind by China and Australia. I think they're not prepared for this Olympics, but I hope they will improved, anyway there still one week left for them to dominate the medal tallies. They are 'fading stars' right now... in the gymnastics they were over-thrown by US! They only got silver for individual and team performance. I don't know what happened to them, they are the best in gymnastics both men and women esp. Svetlana Khorkina, my fave gymnastic athlete. I can't believe she just bag the silver and the gold went to US athlete. Romania proved again its reputation as best in gymnastics when they won the golds inthe events and China was also 'fading stars' in gymnastics I don't know what happen to China they are best in gymnastics last Olympics and now they just place a mediocre.

China is really prepared in this games, look at the medal tallies they are at the top 1. Last two days they were overthrown by US in medals because of Micheal Phelps who won many golds in swimming but right now I check in the site, China is in the top again. Japan is a surprise in the medal board, they are third in the tally and one of the first country to win gold in this year's Olympics along with China. Japanese are really prepared for this Olympics!

Actually Asians rule the top three, China, follwed by USA and then Japan which is surprising because in Sydney 2000 they are rank below. USA is really monster in the medals as they attempt to become number one again like what they did in Sydney 4 years ago but China is more prepared from them that still rule in the tally board as rank no. 1.

About the athletes in the swimming... Austalia's Ian Thorpe and USA's Micheal Phelps are the stars of the swimming event. Phelps is attention grabbing in the games with an ambition to bag 7 golds in one Olympic game to equal Mark Spitz in Munich 1976 but actually that ambition ended as Ian Thorpe didn't allow him to get the gold in other events, Phelps only manage to get five... one of the medals he dream to win were snatch by Thorpe. I think this is Phelps first time in Olympics as his name didn't sound in Sydney. By the way Ian Thorpe also managed to depend his swimming title and manage also snatch the gold from Netherlands' Pieter van den Hoogenband, my favorite swimmer, in the 200m freestyle that Pieter won in Sydney. Meanwhile, Pieter managed to depend his title in 100m freestyle and took the gold. Hehe... he proved again that he is one of the star of Olympic games after Thorpe and Phelps.

It's also another "hehe" for USA team basketball as yesterday they were defeated by Lithuania in their match. This was their second loss after Puerto Rico who beat them in the early preliminaries. Lithuania retained its position as unbeaten team in basketball. I hate them... they thought they'll gonna win again like in the Sydney where they bag the gold, well they're wrong! They were dubbed as "Dream Team" which I think for me they're not!!! Their dream is over for the gold, its time to give way for the other countries! So I'm so happy that even Philippines have not yet won any medal at least China is dominating. I hate them when they beat Greece and Australia... but they struggle to past Greece as their final scores were neck-to-neck and though they won the cheers comes from the hometown crowd for team Greece. Meanwhile in China, Yao Ming even he is now playing for China and the tallest I think he wasn't able to do something to uplift their team in their pool group. They were beaten 2 times but who knows more games will come this week. But for the meantime my cheer goes to Lithuania for beating USA!

The tennis event this year's games is I think the star-studded! Venus Williams is present without her sister Serena who cited that she has knee injury. USA's Andy Roddick and Swiss Roger Federer was also present to add more stars in the court. But infortunately they didn't fit for the world athletes match as all of them were eliminated in their seeds. Federer was eliminated first putting shame in his title as depending champion in the event in Sydney 200 and Roddick after 2 or 3 seed loss to Chilean and put shame to his title as champion. Venus was also a shame when Mary Pierce of France beat her and made her eliminated in the tennis court. What a sad tale fortune for the stars of the tennis...

I'm glad that I able to watch Olympic games (fully without interruption from my other 'businesses') fed by NBN4 this weekend. I also finally decided to continue my picture and article compilation in Olympics for this year after Sydney 2000. So I already started collecting newpapers since last week. Actually I already made the first five page of the compilation.

I remember last Saturday that I'm going to have a reunion with my close friends in hschool - Joy Anne and Jewelyn, as we've plan with Joy Anne because it is her birthday the next day and she is going blowout us. We've talk about it when we saw each other in SM Manila. But too bad it was cancelled and I feel disappointed afterwards, because I'm hoping to see them. And it is going to be our reunion because we haven't saw each other since I went to college. Jewelyn backout first because of her ailing grandfather so Joy Anne cancelled it bec. we were not complete. I really felt disapponted! And sad too... A good in the afternoon while I watch Olympic games Gnes txt me and says that let's see each other with my other friends in Arthur's house. Well I feel relief that I will see my other friends despite of Joy Anne's cancelled birthday blowout. We went to E and then to McDo with Ariane. We share stories as usual but it was fun and I enjoy hanging out with them becuase we relief again the good old times.

At Sunday 6 p.m. I've listened to home radio as they played James Bond theme songs which I crave to listened to since last Friday when I heard its announcement in bus radio. Too bad that I wasn't able to listen to all the songs but those I've heard were good even those I've don't know. Those favorites of mine played were 'For Your Eyes Only'by Sheena Easton, Madonna's 'Die Another Day' Shirley Bassey's 'Goldfinger' and 'Tomorrow Never Dies performed by Sheryl Crow. I hope they continue featuring James Bonds' themes next Sunday

This entry is quite long too like my last entry last week. But I'll try to minimize this... this just because of my updates and craze in Olympics. I am also happy that many visitors were keep on viewing my blog... the counter reach to 300 plus visits!!! A big thank you from me!

Greece welcomes the world!!!

0 comments
I woke up early as 3 a.m. just to watch Greece!!!
But more than that... to watch the opening ceremony of Athens 2004 Olympics that is in Greece!

Actually I wanted to write this in August 13 because that is the opening day but due to my other "businesses" I write it just today, anyway, it was live fed from NBN 4 becuase the local time there is 8 p.m. Finally right before my eyes I saw the rich heritage and places of Athens that someday I wish to visit. They show everything what Greece has to offer in the eyes of the world. The opening ceremony was a grandeur and really long, imagine! it lasted for almost 5 hours, it ended at 7 in the morning. I am happy to see Athens and the parading cultural presentation of Greece. The opening ceremony presentations was wonderful as it shows all about Greece in the huge stadium with a unique lake in the middle where all the presentation took place. The presentation and cultural parade showed tribute to all Greek philosophers and pioneers in different fields like math, geometry, art, sculpture and medecine. There was a centaur and a man and woman who kissed live as part of the presentation. The parade also showed what the Greeks known for - the Greek Mythology! Eros was there, All other gods and godessess was there, the Satyr was there! Hercules and the Hydra was there, and Alexander the was there and many others presented in a unique Greek statue way by showing showing the presentors in body paint statue! Their body paint made them like a human life statue!

This is is the emblem of the Athens 2004 Olympics. It is a unique Greek design of an olive wreath. Olive wreathes are the first medals in ancient olympics. This is courtesy of www.athens2004.com.

Did I also mention that the opening ceremony were star-studded? Queen Sophia of Spain was there and former US president George Bush. Prince Albert of Monaco was there, Prince of Denmark (I don't know his name) and British Prime Minister Tony Blair and other political figures and socialites.

Then there are speechies from the heads and then the parade of of delegate athletes, by the way in Greek alphatbet! So they are rumble. I waited long as the 202 nations parade to look for team Philippines which came around at 6 am in local time because they were in 197 place! The team Philippines was in native dress like the others, the women were in ternos and men were in barong. Among the teams Austalia was one of the most lauded by the audience... maybe bec. the were the host nation in the last games. Others which were most lauded are Cyprus - maybe bec. they were Greece neigbhor countries and Iraq who got a standing ovation from the audience maybe bec. despite of the war they still manage to participate and everybody knows what happened to them. Its just a way of people's appreciation. Korea also had a warm cheer for marching again for the 2nd time unified! It was like "he he" for US because they were not that warm welcome by the audience. It good for them bec. I know they are the monster of the medals. The announcing of names were also unique because it is mentioned three times, one, the name of the country in their own language, second, in Greek languand and third in English. Gladly that the announcer pronounce "Pilipinas" correctly.

By the team Greece entered there was thunderous cheer from the crowd cheering Ellas! Ellas! Ellas! The Grrek word for Greece. And I think they are the most numbered athlete in the game because they filled the whole stadium and everyone was so proud and happy as seen in the camera.

And Bjork was there, who performed a song number. The Olympic torch followed but before there was another presention of recounting the hosts countries from 1896 in which Athens hosted the first modern games up to 2004 where the crowd made a thuderous cheer again! They presented it with a man running carrying a flag with an olive design in it. Then each time a hosted country is mention he passes after a ribbon, when the World Wars 1 and 2 mentioned he would stop. When World War 1 was mentioned he dropped to his kness I thought it was true but it was part of the presention. It was really unique presentation from the Greeks... almost all were unique.

In the center stage stage there was an olive tree and the water in the middle also did gone before the parade of athletes bec. they will be place there. It was incredibly how they did make the water gone out of the center of the stadium. The lighting of the torch was incredible and ceremonial. Great Greek athletes that gave honor to Greece passes one by one torch until it reach a tall torch which I think computer-controlled. It was so tall that it passes the height of the stadium. It was a beautiful sight to see. Then fireworks were lighted in the stadium which was so beautiful bec. some were rainbow color I mean all the seven color were present. It was also wonderful to see right before your eyes.

Later in the noon I also did watch the replay in at 12pm and at 10pm. God! I'm really an Olympic fan! I am also thinking if I will make again a documentary compilation about this year's Olympics, bec. in Sydney 2000 Olympics I did have compilation of pictures from the magazine and newpapers and I had it bookbined. I am thinking if I am going to repeat it again... what do you think?

In the afternoon there were already live fed of the games. I've watched first Philippines compettion in swimming. Miguel Molina was 8th in his heat (I felt "nakakahiya!") and Miguel Mendoza was 1st in his heat. We were holding our breath as we watch them (I was watching with my family) and we're happy in cheers 'bout Mendoza who place first in the heat!

In Sunday I bought newspapers for pictures and news. I 've decided to continue my compilation in Athens 2004 Olympics, oh my this another "business". I learned that Camat, a Philippine boxer was beaten by Russia and other news 'bout the games. I was hoping that the campaign for the gold will come true, my support only to the Philippine athletes was only a prayer. Even GMA had a nationwide speech for the team Philippines saying that winning doesn't matter but the spirit of friendship and humanity is in reign. She also said many inspirational speech in support for the athletes. For me, we are thirsting for the gold and I hope team Philippines will won. We long for the gold medal and glory for our country, so I say... Go team Philippines!!!

Fantasy

Fantasy

Close your eyes
And let me play among the stars
And on the moon that shone above
You're my fantasy

You're the one
That makes me fall in love
And fly to the sky like dove
You are the one that I want

You are my love
The one that makes my fantasy
Whenever I saw you
I could melt in love

Whenever I saw your face
I felt my heart in felicity
You are so charming
So perfectly shape, so lovely

You wear eyeglasses
But behind it, were your blazing eyes
Like crystal of spectacles
Like stars that sparkles

I'm so emotionally attracted
So recklessly I need you
Radically need you
So desperately sure I love you

I kiss your red lips
Down to your fingertips
A kiss that you never felt before
Full of passion

In the soft bed
You lay me with a kiss
All around me seems to be bliss
As we share the night

Till dawn
You cradle me to your arms
And kiss me all the way down
'Til my breath calm down

A wish not this is fantasy
A vision or illusion
Imagination or fiction
But you are my fantasy.

Dreams in Japan...

0 comments
Early this morning I had a dream that I was in Japan particularly near the airport. It's kind a weird because I'm with my sister. We're visiting the place and its was suddenly cut-off when my mom wake me up and told me that my sister needs to borrow my internet card. It was really weird... what do you think? This is the second time that I dreamed that I was in Japan... maybe because Japan wants me to visit again their country :)

Today I suddenly felt missing one of my close classmate in school... Ehm, she is out-of-school because she gets pregnant to her first child. I miss her. But anyway she'll be back in second sem to continue her studies.

I added in the links the official website of Athens 2004 Olympics in honor of its celebration as it starts in four days... 'hope Philippines will won gold this time. Let's support the team Philippines in the Athens 2004 Olympics.

Blueberry Cheese Cake...

I've just smell and this taste this kind of sweet confectionary in airplane meals serve with the main course... Today, I simply can't believe that I've tasted this kind of cake.

I'm so happy today... because I saw Joy Anne, one of my close friend in hschool accidentally in SM Manila. And I'm sure you know what happened - we talk everything... recounting the old hschool days, college life, studies and about our life until we got home to Cavite. I'm so happy because we never saw each other after the graduation until today in SM Manila. Well, I was in Manila because me and Nagi, together with her friends have visited Tokyo Kids - an anime store. I'm getting dizzy with so many anime stuff there. And promise... I'm will go back there again... soon. Thank God for Nagi that we've been in Manila because if not there I won't accidentally saw Joy Anne... I missed her and my other close friend, Jewelyn and so my other hschool friends... Oh, I'm missing the old times.

Meantime for this month there were new updates... comment box courtesy of HaloScan and links to other blogs. You can visit other cool blogs of Nagi and Lore in the links section so you can read their "fantasies" and Green Quill - this is the official on-line publication of my school where I also write articles... so please feel free to visit the site and read my articles as well as other articles of my co-writers. More updates will be coming soon this month including tag board and more links, so keep on visiting.

Peaceful Ocean

Peaceful Ocean

Cold seabreeze passed across my body
The ocean is so peaceful
With the waves roared and chilled through my body
The blue sky was so wonderful

The waves splashed on the sand
The breeze whispered to my ear
Seashores covered with throught sand
The water in the ocean has many colors
Blue, cornflower, violet and light blue

The reflection of the sunlight makes the colors
Bright and beautiful and all turn to blue
My life is like the peaceful ocean
And I want to stay my life peaceful forever

My life is like the peaceful ocean
And I want to stay my life peaceful forever
Like the way the breeze whisper from the ocean
I want to my life peaceful as I remember the ocean in my mind

As sun sets down
The blue sky turn to pink
The sunset that was beautiful as it go down
Peaceful ocean, I want it to remember forever.

***************************************************
This is perfect for my skin which I composed 5 years ago can you imagined that... it was July 19, 1999. I was inspired to write this when I saw the ocean over the window in the 3rd floor building of our school when I was in hschool. Eversince then I love the views of the ocean, the hues of blue... its serenity and peacefulness. You won't be tired looking at this natural scenery.

by the ocean....

Welcome to my new skin...
by the ocean... its tranquil, serene and calm.
by the ocean... I like the harmony of colors especially the blending my favorite color blue.
by the ocean... I like it when I first saw it in blogskins, its the best.
by the ocean... This skin is made possible with the help of encoding it with my friend, Nagi. She help me arrange the skin and I edit the few codes to make it more appealing and beautiful.
by the ocean... Hope you like it...

Meanwhile, I hate my professor in Cognitive Psychology, she is always late in our class. I notice her tardiness in the past weeks of our sessions and I think its becoming habitual. She is late either 10 to 15 minutes of the class. I hate it! I come early to class early and she is late, she's not showing a quality time as a person.

And i also noticed in our class there are so many EVP's - executive vice president of epals in our classroom, especially those irregular students in our asian and western civilization class. "Mga epal!" they thought they know everything and 'mamoru' - the real EVP in our class, my friend was complaining 'bout this gal in her 'epalization' in their org. meeting, she was the real EVP!

These situations are getting to my nerves. Good thing is that I like my new skin. It calms me down in this EVP's. I like views of ocean eversince... its peaceful, natural, serene and blue. I like its natural look although it takes time to show its backrough image. But I really love it... hope you like it.

Mr. Topnotcher... that is what my teacher in Asian and western civilization, Mr. Cuarto called me when he declared that I am the topnotcher of in his subject in the prelim exams... I'm glad because I've sacrifice a lot of my rest time for the one week prelims and my sacrificing of sleeping late at night become worthy. And I also think later after that... dapat lang! anak 'ata 'to ni Mam Mabel. am Mabel was my teacher in world history back in highschool. Meantime, I'm currently searching for the best skin for my blog (seeking help to my friend, Nagi - a site wizard) 'hope in my next post that a new skin is published. I am happy that prelims is over and now its midterm...another start of a new battle.

Circle of Friends

Circle of Friends

Our friendship makes our lives
Happy and jolly, no sorrow and cries
We always share our lives to no lies
Like the beauty of the world that is so mild

Our friendship is the moment of happiness
That takes away my sadness
Friends are like treasure
Where I can lean on for sure

My friends help on my way
With me everyday
We share our daughters and stories together
Till I see their smiles in my mind forever

Make new friends, but keep the old
Those are silvers these are gold
Circle of friends where we all belong
Will forever lasted long

Past these days were all friends
Through sadness, happiness and hope never ends
Let s filled the world of our friendship
The friendship that never ends


****************************************************

Friends are important to me and I know everyone would agree with that , we spend almost half of our life with them I composed this poem last July 14, 1999 dedicated to my sophomore classmates at II-St. Magdalena of Nagazaki. That year was one of the most memorable year in my life, there were many things happen, memories, fun, laughs and of course friends that make memorable memories. How I wish I could bring back those days

Best Song Collection

Best Song Collection


I just recently bought a Sailor Moon Audio CD Original Soundtracks entitled Best Song Collection . And I like it... I don t regret that I bought it because it s really worth to buy especially for someone who is fanatic so I recommend it to Bishoujo Senshi fans. The CD was a compilation of best songs from Sailor Moon series and movie theme songs which unfortunately I can t able to read sing along with the lyrics because they were in Katakana. So I have to research in the net for the lyrics and English translations, fortunately I found one site.

I like the songs especially the 'Sailor Star Song', the opening theme song of its 5th season and the ending song 'Kaze Mo Sora mo Kitto' (The Wind, The Sky, Surely) has different version in sound and I like its beat. I also like 'Rashiku Ikimasho' (Let s Go As We Are) by Meu; this is the second ending song of the 4th season. I also like the ending songs of a ballad 'Watashitachi ni Naritakute' (We Want to be Ourselves) and 'Tuxedo Mirage', which was sung by the original seiyuu voices of Bishoujo Senshi. I like Moon Revenge which was the ending song of Sailor Moon R The Movie and the ballad song 'Moonlight Destiny' by Hiroko Asakawa that was somewhat contains French words that I don’t like, they made it a tango tune. I want the version in the movie, which is sadder, and more ballad in tune.
Well, I enjoy listening to the songs and it was indeed the best song collection of my favorite songs from Sailor Moon. So fanatics, you have to grab a copy of this CD that contains great songs so you can relieve again the beauty of this animation and by the way there is another release of Sailor Moon song collection, which I consider also to buy. Oh remember what was the last thing that I want to do... is I want to listen and sing over and over again.
