Many thanks from Padayon!

I know this is very late, but I’ll go on anyway. So, here it goes.

First of all, I want to express my gratitude for all those who have taken time in visiting, reading and giving comments in my blog. For you, who  loved, commended, hated, criticized, and enjoyed visiting my blog, thank you very much. I never would have made it to the Top 20 if it weren’t for you, guys. I know, cliche much; but, I am truly thankful.

As I mentioned in my very first blog entry, Padayon is a blog account I created as a requirement for one of my class last sem. Now, that that sem has ended, this blog will no longer be a requirement in a class project; however, I decided to keep it, still. Personally, maintaining this “formal blog” taught me things I would have never learned if I just continued on exploring the personal side of blogging. As much as this project gave me, actually the whole class, a hard time, I am still grateful for the experience.

I am now maintaining another blog account, a personal one: Unlike this one, the entries there are anything under the sun. I admit that I am more at ease putting my thoughts into words in that blog, well primarily because it isn’t graded at all. But I have to give credit to this experience, because I now learned to be more sensible in what I write there. Yes, there are still “emo contents”, but they are no longer the same entries I made from my previous blogs.

I decided to keep this blog, yes; but, for the meantime, Padayon will be put into rest. I will “re-open” this blog when I am ready and is already a part of the corporate world, or any career for that matter. I will still be heard online through the personal blog that I have mentioned. I hope to see you guys there, too. Again, thank you very much for the time.

As my blog goes… Padayon!


I am, more or less, four months away from graduation (keeping my fingers crossed). I am already very excited.

lord give us strength

grant us the serenity

and the wisdom to know the difference

Reading “Irish”


Another project for my advertisement class. This time we were asked to make the book cover for our would-be-self-authored book (if ever we decided to make one). I entitled my book “Confessions of a Smitten Soul”, which was the same name I have been using for all my personal accounts.

At first, I though it would be easy for me to come up with a book cover. I have already read a lot of books, so inspirations wouldn’t be that hard. That was what I thought. Later on, I found myself asking this main question, “how will I make sure that my book would sell?” Read the rest of this entry »

Trouble, now Double

vabIt has almost been a week ago since Typhoon Ondoy struck Metro Manila. Everyone didn’t expect the damage it caused. A lot of people, mostly students and employees, were stranded. There were those who were a little lucky to be on their respective offices and universities during the flood, and then there were those who were more unfortunate as they first-handedly watched the water rose on the street. But saying that they were unfortunate is actually an understatement. While they were watching the flood, some people in other places of Metro Manila were already on the battle to save their lives. Indeed, Ondoy made himself a spot on the list of Philippine Calamities that took a lot of souls and properties. A lot of people haven’t completely recovered yet from the damages it made, yet another typhoon, Pepeng–a stronger typhoon–is causing terror to the country once more.

The effects of these calamities are greatly felt all over the Philippines. Everyone has their eyes on what happened and what will happen. The presence of Ondoy and Pepeng are everywhere, affecting every state–physical, emotional, mental, and even the cyber world.

How will you die?


My mom freaked out big time when she saw me making this picture. “Anu ba yan, para kang mamamatay na!”. “Exactly!”, I told her with a grin.

The photo above is just a part of the project I previously worked on for my Advertising Class. We were asked to make our own obituaries. Imagine plotting your own death, kinda weird huh? On a less bizarre context, however, I actually enjoyed doing the project. Not that I liked the idea of being dead (knocks 3x), it was the introspecting part of the project that I enjoyed.  It made me think of the things I wanted to accomplish before I, well, “crossover the light”. It made me ask, who’s going to be there when that happened? Will I still have the same set of friend ’til the end? Will I live a happy and satisfied life? Will I be missed? I know, it’s already getting cheesier; so, I’ll stop there. Read the rest of this entry »

A Better Writer

I keep on staring on my computer for hours now, but nothing would come out. I tried to write a sentence or two, but I keep on erasing them in the end.

writeI kept staring on my computer for hours now, but nothing would come out. I tried to write a sentence or two about the subject I’m working on, but I keep on erasing them in the end.

Back in high school, it’s just so easy for me to write. It’s just so easy for me to put my thoughts into words. Well, relatively easier as compared to right now–college. I used to write for my school paper, producing at least 3 articles in 2 weeks; and proud to say, I always try and do meet my quota. I knew during those times that I would be venturing in a course that would require me such skill. And I did. UP Manila’s Orcom opened its door for me to fulfill that dream. But it was never really easy. The works always expect an extra effort, returned papers are not always free of bloody-red marks and scratches, and blank screens became more intimidating.There were times when frustration would just eat me up. But I choose not to give up. I will not stop writing, making mistakes, and learning from them. Even if I did improve my writing, I will still go on.
