Ultraman without him! (what happened Godzilla?)

My buddy Myk and I are fond of movies that we are starting to make it a hobby and that includes saving a portion of our budget for this expensive venture. (150/ticket + food) 

The night prior was rather quiet as we watched the last full show of Oculus, a scary movie about an ancient glass mirror who has the habit of infesting whoever owns it eventually making them mentally sick and killing them. I was complaining about the lack of audience moreover mall goers the past few days. I forgot its summer. So they must have gone home to the boondocks and helped their families, toiling the land, feeding fishes and planting rice. Where were we? Yes, summer.

So it came a surprise yesterday when swarm of people were waiting in line to see the premier night of Godzilla (pronounced as Gadzila - three syllables in the fastest way you can). Its nice to see some people finally, familiar faces and even gym goers whose mere presence speaks of awkwardness. You don't know whether you'll smile or pretend that he does not go to the same gym same as yours.

i hear the janitors outside
and the hum of the refrigerator
the clicking of the keyboard as i type this
i am alone
and under the well lit room.
i travel my mind to yesterday
and thought of today
and what will happen tomorrow
i am happy
and now sad
and hopefully strong.
i live by words and stories
of laughters and heartaches
of sorrow and merriment
and when it happened to me
it felt the world was on my shoulder.
how to move on?
from the heartache
from the one that gave you life
only to be left lifeless 
and confused.
i hear the janitors outside
and the hum of the refrigerator
the clicking of the keyboard as i type this
and although my heart is heavy
and feels hard to breathe
i have to move on
one step at a time
one day at a time.
how will i move on?
until there are no more tears left
until i learn how to breathe
until i put a smile on my face
until i am ready to show myself to the world


Revised Rotating Power Interruption Schedule (Davao Light as of May 7, 2014)

The following information was taken from the Davao Light and Power Company Website as of May 7, 2014 at 2:41PM.

The National Power Corporation (NPC) through the National Grid Corporation of the Phils. (NGCP) has further reduced the power supply allocation of Davao Light from 120 MW as of last week to 102 MW starting today, May 7. This is way lower than the Davao Light's contracted supply with NPC of 280 MW.

This reduction forced Davao Light to increase the length of its scheduled rotating brownouts from 6 hours to 7.5 hours (5 hours during peak hours and 2.5 hours during off peak) effective today. (Please refer to the table below)

Below is the revised rotating power interruption schedule for the period of May 8 to 14.

However,Davao Light would like to inform customers that the actual switch off and switch on time may vary from the announced schedules and may exceed from the stated duration depending on the actual load curtailment levels imposed by NGCP on Davao Light,which changes every hour.

    So here I am, bruised. Slowly swallowing the fact that I was cheated on. They say: "love conquers all." But whoever said that needs to be hanged. No matter how deep nor strong your love is, when trust is shattered, it goes sour and lonely, afraid to see the daylight again.

    You rewind all the memories, flashback fridays, throwback thursdays and scrutinize each day as if it was a movie. Play, pause, rewind to know who's fault it was. You blame yourself for everything. Was I too much? too strong? too overbearing? or was still simply lacking? No matter how hard you go on with your day as if nothing happened, still you feel something deep inside. A heavy burden, a crushing sensation on your left chest enough to give you headache and several days of loss of appetite. Sorry seems to be the hardest word but may go easy on the on one hand but no matter how delicately and creatively said, it still means nothing.
