I’ll celebrate with you.
I’ll turn off the light.
For an hour or so
You and I,
Will do it again together
Just like the way we’ve done it
Many nights before.
In the dark, with a lamp or just a candlelight
We will reconnect and experience
The simple joys we have long ignored.
Feel the air that touches us.
See the moon or the stars that shine above us.
Watch the moths bask in that same candlelight.
Perhaps snap and scratch just a little lit
As mosquito bites and sucks or sips our blood.
And knowing that we can share and do it for an hour
And still be, in every seconds of that 60 minutes
Its simplicity, maybe a magical moment for the rest of us
To SEE THE LIGHT.

And life goes on.
Sometimes I wonder what’s going on in this world.
Why all the bad news? Not because there are few or no good things going on everywhere but perhaps, there’s a lot of money to make on bad news and as always, it takes longer to digest. (kinakain ba yon? he.he.he) It lingers on a bit longer than the other news, so much so that old clips could be played, replayed, over and over, and of course, with those commercials. To me, it would have been great if they can put this: This exclusive bad news is brought to you by THE COMPANY (sponsor) who we make money from… ha.ha.ha
oH sORRY, why on earth I started asking what’s going on in this world? The fact that in this post and everything that you will read below has got nothing to do with what’s happening to the world but myself. he.he.he. So, I guess the right question to ask is: what’s going on with me? But hell no, it’s not correct either. It must be (ito sakto), what’s wrong with me? Not that I am sick or something. LOL
Well, whatever that maybe, I am allowing you to take a see (di ba dapat look?) at what’s really going on inside me – certain parts only ha.
Sabi nga nya, (sorry, nakalimutan ko name ng nagsabi), ‘Halika, Tuloy, Welcome to me.’ (tama ba? ha ha ha.)
Here: Start reading from here NOT somewhere. ano ka ba? he.he.he
me: so you woke up early today ha?
me me: How did you know that I slept?
me: what is that supposed to mean?
me me: you were snoring that loud all night! You know!
me: that did not mean anything, was it? I was having a dream.
me me: what, a nightmare?
me: nope a great dream.
me me: and you haven’t slept at all. Damn right!
me: Damn right! Cos I was dreaming.
me me: how was it?
me: in my dream I haven’t slept.
me me: but then you have had your sleep. the proof is that you had a dream and you were snoring loud the whole night.
me: i told you, i haven’t slept yet. I was dreaming. I was snoring loud the whole night as you have said. was that sleeping to you?
me me: ah okay. I guess you are right.
me: then can we go to sleep right now? I haven’t had any sleep the whole night. you were snoring so loud.
me me: no way! that dream, just to emphasize that i did not sleep, was exclusively mine and I wanted to end it that way. I am afraid, it would have another chapter and end differently if I go back again. and you might get into it, you’ll mess it up and that becomes a nightmare.
me: but there is what you call a beautiful nightmare. and that’s me, yours truly.
me me: then you go sleep yourself, beautiful nightmare.
me: oh well, you’ll never know what it is.
me me: no problem.
me me me: Woo-oh, would you please stop arguing and be quiet! you are messing up my dream. damn it!
me: and so you are sleeping.
me me: you woke up.
me me me: how did you know that I am sleeping? that I woke up?
me & me me : what is that supposed to mean?
me me me: that did not mean anything, was it? I was having a dream!
me & me me: what, a nightmare?
me me me: what?
me & me me: and you are not sleeping huh?
me me me: of course, i told you i was dreaming.
me me me me: Oh Please, please stop that non-sense. For now, let us focus on one thing. the water stopped and nalagayan ng sabon ang mata natin. ang kulit ninyo. ano ba?
all me: okay….get that water, hurry. It hurts. Tubig. Tubig. Tubig! TUBIIIG!
Yeah, what was the dream?
OH, sorry I can’t remember anymore. I fall asleep. I chose to sleep.
…. and so the story goes, it was told many times over, the day started as it is, the sun sets out as it should, night falls, darkness spreads, the glorious sun smiles, greets everyone warmly, “Hello!”. morning sets in, the day starts with me, for me, as well, it ends with me, for me. it’s all for me, full of me, full of myself, myself and me, the new super hero (???), me! OMG! What’s wrong with ME? lol
Naguluhan ka ba? O Naguguluhan ka ba? Tell me.

The other day, a real estate broker/agent visited me and showed me some very interesting properties that they are offering especially for a “discriminating, intelligent, well-informed real estate customer/investor.” Wow. ang (damning) daming adjectives. ha ha ha
Honestly, all the properties being offered to me are all good for investment purposes and I wish I could buy them all. Ha ha ha
And Yes, I was amazed, I guess, the broker/agent sensed that but then he felt that I am still looking for something else other than what he has presented to me. And when the situation is like this, I knew, without a doubt, that he would say these usual lines:
What are you looking for in a house or a home? Tell us and we will help you in finding it.
My answer: MONEY. That is what I am looking for in a house.
And yes again, the real estate broker/agent did not expect anything like this. For a moment, there was silence (natamimi), then smile (of course, kasi simangot is not allowed, hehehe) and laughter. “Yes sir, you are right! There is really no doubt in my mind that you are one ‘discriminating, intelligent, well-informed real estate customer/investor.” Ay Inulit. ha ha ha
But I know and I am sure that there were other adjectives or things running in the mind of the real estate broker/agent. Please do not ask me what? Ha ha ha.
Ikaw, You, what are you looking for in a house or home?
Some kind of a lesson: It is hard to sell something if you do not know how to sell or if the customer is not capable of buying the thing you are selling.
In short, do the K.Y.C. – Know Your Customer baby, just like the first rule of not getting into trouble with money laundering. LOL
