    What do you do when its your "Last Holiday"?
    Friday, November 30, 2007

    I was watching "Last Holiday" earlier and it got me thinking...What do you do when you discover that you have only got three weeks to live?

    "Last Holiday" is actually about a woman named Georgia Byrd working as a sales associate in the cookware section of a store in New Orleans. She was diagnosed with Lampington's disease and found out that she only had three weeks to live. And so with that she quit her job, got all her savings and went on holiday cruise at a place in Europe. My summary is a little understated so to speak because I wouldn't want to ruin the ending for anyone.

    This past few years I look back and remember being a control freak. I still am sometimes. Always uptight, wanting to be on schedule, getting mad when things just don't go my way. I guess the environment I have grown up in is fast paced and being raised by my mom alone(my Dad was working in KSA), she wanted things in order. Well, I know the movie was released last year but frankly speaking it kind of got to me. Coz you see, it made me realize that sometimes having control is not assurance that everything would be in its rightful place all the time. I know it can help...but we can't control everything and somewhere along the way things can go wrong. Usually, control causes you to freak out and reach your saturation point. It could get me so stressed out, I worry about little glitches and sometimes bring it out on other people. (My Bad... I'm sorry.. :( )

    And so with that, I have come to a realization that while its good to be ready for those "little glitches" and its nice to know that you have control over your life, wouldn't it be better to know that when you finally reach the end of the road you're happy and contented with the life that you've had??? Well, I'm not getting any younger but I won't go all pessimistic and say that I'm gonna die tomorrow..but the sad fact is when its your time ..its your time.. so i think I'm gonna try to live my life with a little more fun in it. Relax, have a nice time, live life one day at a time, give myself time to experience life in all its glory...

    And like they say "don't sweat the small stuff"!!! :):):)

    It's a car of our client(thanks for allowing me to take a pic )

    I'm kind of an admirer of cars. I use the word "admirer" because I'm really not that knowledgeable on a cars technicalities but I know how to appreciate when I see one.

    That's how far it goes. I don't even know how to drive. Although, i do plan to learn how to, and that is A.S.A.P. I'll give you an update on how the driving lessons go.

    I really hope its soon.

    how i wish...
    Sunday, November 25, 2007

    How will you feel when we are the only ones left here?

    ......There would be no clouds anywhere here.

    Every day filled from the sun

    ......In our arms we awake and wait..

    As the shore and sun and ocean come to us.

    ....everyone shall always lust for the night and dark.

    I would draw your deep dark eyes on my circle mirror,

    ..... just to see what you see..

    I can lie and dream of your love as you please..

    .....i can dream and lie about love.

    All these emotions of mine..

    ..... stopping me giving my life

    to a rainbow like you...

    The reason a dog has so many friends is that he

    wags his tail instead of his tongue. - Anonymous A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself. - Josh Billings

    If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man. - Mark Twain

    I got the above quotations from a friendster bulletin of Kuya Ed, and I remembered this picture of my St. Bernard "Jhamailla" whom I fondly call Jha-jha. I have had her for two years and of all the dogs we have, it is her that I am most fond of. I have always been a dog-lover for as long as i can remember. As a kid, I had a mongrel(the one filipinos commonly call "askal"), and being an only child I used to find myself with no one to talk to since both of my parents had jobs. Call it crazy but I usually find myself talking to the dog like it was a person and that it could understand what I was saying. Maybe it was out of loneliness or the absence of an actual person to converse with that I ended up doing so. Believe it or not, i still do, especially with jha-jha.

    She never ceases to amaze me, call it imagination or whatever, but i always get a bark or a tilt of her head if only to let me feel that she understood what I was saying. It always felt like she could really relate, and if only they could talk instead of bark, maybe...just maybe...

    Relating the quotations above with my experience with my St. Bernard, one characteristic that is hard to find in a friend is loyalty. Well, I mean it is easy to say that you are loyal to a person, the question is..for how long? I have survived 26 years of my life and honestly a loyal friend is very hard to find. While it is human nature for a person to get hurt or probably get angry, the results of this emotions may sometimes be the point of no return in ones' friendship, or any relationship for that matter. But try slapping a dog with all your anger..after some yelping from the dog, after sometime the dog comes back with a wagging tail. You don't expect the same kind of reaction from a human being.

    Suppose i raise the argument that "the human is more superior than animals because it has a mind capable of thinking, and a heart that can love with all the emotion it can muster."? Must I point out that whereas an animal or specifically a dog may be considered a lower from of specie as compared to a human, it is much more capable of being a role model when it comes to "loyalty". I was able to prove this time and again with jha-jha. Her looks tend to be misleading since she has the tendency to look fierce and angry all the time..but to tell you the truth..I never found a person who would be standing in front of your doorstep waiting for you in the wee hours of the night(baka may comment ng "ano ko tagabantay mo???====> pangungunahan ko na po kayo :>) I would always find jha-jha waiting in her cage for me..all alert..ready to strike when the possibility of danger arises...that's how loyal a dog can get. Willing (and I guess much too willing than a human person) to give up her life for her master. So what's my point????

    It would make the world a more peaceful place if only-------->

    1. We learn to forgive and be loyal to the friends we have (stop bad-mouthing them when you are on a fight...you're only putting yourself to shame by doing so)

    2. Believe that in this world, no one can exist alone..you know like the saying goes "No man is an island". No one is saying that you don't have the right to get hurt...just don't make it the reason for you to fall apart with the people close to your heart and value so much. It's easy to say "i can manage without you/them"..but can you really?

    3. Try to be a dog sometimes..now let me clarify that...be loyal and trustworthy...let us be selfless sometimes and not think of what we have to gain other than the gift of friendship. While it is true that we have to value our pride and the "person" inside us, let's not forget that the best love is selfless love. One that doesn't demand for anything in return, but rather it seeks happiness in the opportunity of showing his/her love to another being.

    Let me re-quote that of Josh Billings-->A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.

    About Me

    Name: RJ
    Home: Baguio City, Philippines
    About Me: I'm pretty much normal and sane. Much like anybody I believe that each and every person is unique, with their strengths and weaknesses. Thus, everyone should be given a chance to prove themselves. I stand firm with my convictions, but that doesn't necessarily mean that nobody can prove me wrong, I have learned that one is entitled to his or her own opinion. Just the same, you won't usually see me standing in the sidelines waiting for somebody to prove a point. I guess this is the foremost reason why this blog was created... And so I leave it all up to you to read between the lines..and begin to know me with the way I express myself through my writings.. :)
