Sorry.

November 3, 2010 Leave a comment

I know I’ve been too frank and true

That I became quite rude to you.

I’ve spoken words that shouldn’t have been said

And given you pain that is hard to mend.

 

I know I’ve been too paranoid but stiff

That I held on to the thoughts “what if?”.

I’ve done some things that made you rage

But you veiled it all for you to manage

 

 

I may have acted more like a kid

That wants several feelings to be hid.

Yet all the care that to you I showed

Are all nothing but my love to owe.

 

 

I know I’m not the perfect one

Who can give all your needs and wants.

All I wanted is to give you love

The love that you deserve to have.

 

Sorry may not be enough to say

To make you decide that you will stay

I am not sure if you will give

An attention for this little piece.

 

But still I want to give it a try

If you would hear this heart that cries

I want you still in my life

And to let you go never I would desire.

Juan vs Juan

October 18, 2010 Leave a comment

The 100 year cycle has been shortened because of climate change,

Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA) General Manager Ed Manda imparted his insight on how Ondoy came to be.

The deadliest among the Philippine storms in 2009, Ondoy killed 240 people, affected 1,872,036 more and damaged P2 billion worth of farm goods and infrastructures as it devastated Metro Manila and surrounding areas. More than 3 million people were affected across Luzon and some areas in Visayas.

 

We don't want this to happen again.

 

312 millimeters. The typhoon poured more than a month’s worth of rain fall in just nine hours on the 26th of September last year. It dumped more amount of rainfall than USA’s Hurricane Katrina. It is indeed, the worst tropical storm that our country experienced for the past 90 years.

Internationally Megi. After almost more than a year since Ondoy left the country, another super typhoon is monitored by PAGASA. Typhoon Juan, internationally known as “Megi”, is feared to bring the same effects as that of Ondoy.

Having retained its 140kph sustained winds near its center and 170kph gustiness, Juan was last spotted moving 24kph at 820 kilometers east of Northern Luzon. It has increased its speed by 4kph (previous was 20kph). All the government offices are all prepared for the coming of the said super typhoon.

La Niña. Global warming inevitably takes its part now. The effect of man’s destruction to Mother Nature is palpable at present. One evidence is the change in the Philippine weather systems.

News said that we should expect more strong storms coming until December and Juan is the start of it.

In all fairness, the Filipinos are being more alert when it comes to changes in weather especially this rainy season. It is but sad to face the reality that we need an Ondoy just to wake up our senses to a reality. The reality that we have vastly altered our environment and that we are to take all the consequences for it.

A Wonderful Woman

She’s a short lady with a fair complexion. She’s got a long straight hair that extends up to her waist, has chinky black eyes, a small pointed nose and very attractive lips. She’s certainly beautiful. To be honest, when you hear her speak, you wouldn’t know that she is an intelligent woman, but you will when you listen deeper on what she is saying.

She says she’s not brilliant. During college, she seldom recites on her class and just stays silent during discussions. Now, being a Science professor at a state university, she attends her class on time and gives requirements like any other mentors would do. She knows her mistakes, she admits it. She has a difficulty in using the English language which affects how her students look at her in an intellectual and most of the time humorous manner. She has always been the center of attraction during her class; the students’ “play time” for grammar.

Everytime she commits her mistakes, some of her students list down the grammatical errors. In my seat, I just keep quiet, processing her statements and laughing silently in the end. I’m mean—we all are bad.

And then it came, we faced the “Judgment Day”. She confronted us in a very unoffending manner. I want to clear it out, this isn’t irony. On that same day I realized how intelligent she is. She has so much wisdom in her that I am now fully amazed with her whole personality. She left us with a short yet very strong statement.

 

Sin started when knowledge was given to Man.

-Prof. Jennelyn Ramos, a very wonderful woman
