I. Am. Sorry. ?

Note: These are MY opinions, lest you forget.

She said SORRY daw.

Oh, well, it was pretty obvious that it was her voice in the GloriaGate CD.

So her public apology was live, but it was obviously still scripted. And for me, um, she may mean what she said, but she totally doesn't look sincere. She looked way fake, like, a cross between looking tired and looking blank.

Personally, she is forgivable. But politically? I don't really know. What she did really betrayed our trust on her, but I guess I can forgive her na rin IF (I emphasize: IF) she makes up for the mistakes she has done. I believe we shouldn't impeach our President just yet. Let's give her a chance to redeem herself, because who knows, she might be able to save this country (um) but if she does not prove to us that she is worthy of the chance we give her, then I am sorry, but kick her off Malacanang. Am I making sense of what I said?

So what happens now?

7 p.m.

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (or, as my brother calls her, "Gloria Macapal-Oreo-- no joke) is going to break her silence tonight at seven P.M. I wonder what she'd say?

It's still 6:16 p.m... Aack, I want to hear this!!

Untitled

Here I am... and I survived the first month of school! Whee, way fun! Of course, it helped that I had an endless supply of Revicon Ion (no thanks to my uncle), which tastes fine, by the way. I like to drink it once a day, but instead, it makes me sleepy, but it keeps me up. Weird.

School? Well, it's fine. I'm doing fine, except I flunked the first Math test! Harhar. And even though I can just say that it wasn't on solving, I still felt bad. Imagine, five points out of fifteen! Gah, so disappointing. Is it my fault? When I was about to go home, I asked everyone if we were going to have quizzes the next day and they all go, "Nothing," but when I walked in the next day, there they were, studying! Sheesh! At least I aced a Science test. That made me feel proud. Of course it helped that I actually listened, but last Thursday, I got sooo sleepy after lunch, and the teacher was going on and on about this and that and I barely heard a word. And she gave out a quiz! I somehow managed to answer it (16 points out of 20, tcha!) but there was a part two, and I was so sleepy I didn't get to finish answering it.

And get this! Every fourth Friday of the month, no classes! Yay! But my teachers will be loading us with assignments, like this weekend, for instance. I have a few quizzes to ace and a few projects here and there. *sigh* And it'll get tougher. How worse can it get? My backbone is already strained from lugging all my school stuff. Will it get to the point that I will forget how to comb my hair? And don't get me wrong, these projects are way hard. I'm getting dizzy thinking about it.

I think I need to clean my room.It's not messy or anything. I just don't like the way my things are arranged. And speaking of which, my mirror fell down from the wall while I was asleep and the frame broke! Well, it was old, anyway, I don't blame it. The good things I see in this are that 1. The mirror did not fall on my head while I was asleep and 2. Mom had it reframed and it totally rocks! It's like one of those expensive mirrors you can find in rich people's houses! Yay!

I have lots of new things! Yipee. At the risk of sounding materialistic, here are my new things.

1. A blue bag from Heartstrings... but I think I need to buy a new one 'cause my stuff won't fit!
2. A brandless top from HongKong... supah dupah sexy!
3. Polos from my aunt
4. A Hermes wallet... oh wait, it's not mine yet. It's my moms, but I'm planning to get it *wink* Did you know my old Gucci one is broken?! Gah! First my Salvatore Ferragamo and now this! *sob*

and I want to buy more stuff!

1. A fedora. I don't know why, but I saw one and it looked so cool
2. A straw hat. Summer's over, I know. Don't remind me.
3. A bolero. But I can't find just the bolero, there's always a matching shirt.
4. A skirt! I swear, there are so many pretty skirts around.
5. A clutch. Well, they're cute! I think I like the blue one.
6. T-shirts.
7. Pink ballet flats!!

I haven't been watching too much TV nowadays, but there's this commercial I sooo hate! Probably you have seen the Palmolive shampoo commerical, the "Freshness... bounce" one. If you haven't, I am going to kick you. It's shown in nearly every commercial gap possible! I'll ask you, does real hair move like a tidal wave everytime you move? *tries moving hair* oh, noooo. Does hair always stick together like glue, except for the ends? Well, no! But look at the commercial and you'll see what I mean. Tsk tsk. Too bad, the commercial model is one of my favorites, Georgina Wilson, but her real hair color is brown, and she had it dyed black for the commercial. Oh yeah, I heard Georgina's going to join a pageant, Miss World or Miss Universe. I don't really know, I just read it somewhere. And I also heard that Verns Buckley's joining a pageant too! Cool, I hope they do join. And going back to that commercial, it totally irks me. Oh, you know already?

I'm getting sleepy... gotta say bye-bye! Outta here!

Lazy Bum Girl

I've been a lazy-bum girl when it comes to updating this blog. Y-o-y? It's not exactly like I've had enough of blogging. I have loads of ideas and things to blog about, but these come to mind when I'm away from Pixie. When I'm on the Blogger Create-A-Post page, zilch.

I finally have a copy of Nina-Live! Yipee! I like Nina more than Kyla (whoops, no offense to Kyla-fans), and I shooo love her new album. It's got 19 tracks and it's super sulit for P300 bucks. I tried burning the tracks on another CD and I nearly threw a fit bec. all the songs won't fit!! Seriously. 19 tracks was equivalent to 84 minutes and you can only fit 80 minutes in a black CD! It's driving me crazy, I tell you.

Speaking of music, I haven't auditioned yet. Ms. M... or should I say, "Teacher Carah! Teacher Carah!" has been absent in school for two days, so auditions are cancelled. Sheesh, I've already changed my song of choice from Tell Me Where It Hurts to Sa Kanya to Kailan, and still she's not there. Currently, I'm thinking of Steep, which is my current LSS, no thanks to the soul siren. Well, it IS within my range, and who says I can't sing it? Blah?

Softly, gently
I will let you down
'Cause I don't love you
In the same way now
I can hold you
But not with lover's arms
'Cause you are more of
A brother to me now
'Cause I can lie next to you
But I can't lie to you

So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you, the future's easy, so don't weep
For me, it's getting steep

I loved you for
Exactly who you are
And I'd say we've come
The nearest yet by far
'Cause I can lie next to you
But I can't lie to you

So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you, the future's easy, so don't weep
For me, it's getting steeper

From where the dark that's where I want to be
Steeper from going somewhere you won't want to see

So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you, the future's easy, so don't weep
Yes, I will watch you
Walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain drops
For you, the future's easy, so don't weep
For me, it's getting steep



Why not? :p

Current Favorite Songs

Patty's Notes:

- these songs aren't arranged.
- forgive me for my mostly M.Y.M.P. phase. But their songs are just so cool!!. I now have their double CD, and I'm listening to it over and over again. Freak.

Constantly- M.Y.M.P.
Constantly, you're on my mind
Thinking about you all the time
I can't sleep no matter what I do
I just keep on thinking 'bout you


Especially for You- M.Y.M.P.
And now we're back together, together
I wanna show you my heart is oh so true
And all the love I have is
Especially for you


Kailan- M.Y.M.P.
Kailan, kailan mo ba mapapansin ang aking lihim
Kahit anong aking gawin, 'di mo pinapansin
Kailan , kailan hahaplusin ang pusong bitin na bitin
Kahit ano'ng gawing lambing, 'di mo pa rin pansin


Sa Kanya- M.Y.M.P.
Sa kanya pa rin babalik sigaw, ng damdamin
Sa kanya pa rin sasaya bulong ng puso ko
Kung buhay pa ang alaala ng ating nakaraan
Ang pagmamahal at panahon alay pa rin sa kanya


True Colors- M.Y.M.P.
But I see your true colors shining through
I see your true colors and that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show your true colors
True colors are beautiful, like a rainbow


Tell Me Where It Hurts- M.Y.M.P.
Why don't you tell me where it hurts now, baby
And I'll do my best to make it better
Yes, I'll do my best to make the tears all go away
Just tell me where it hurts now tell me
And I'll love you with a love so tender
Oh and if you let me stay
I'll love all of the hurt away


We Belong Together- Mariah Carey
When you left I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby, please
'cause we belong together
Who else am I gon' lean on when times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me on the phone till the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place there ain't nobody better
Oh, baby baby, we belong together


Love Makes the World Go Round- Ashlee Simpson
I just wanna talk to you
And my broken heart just has no use
I guess promises are better left unsaid, yeah
Everytime you try to tell me
You say the words that I'm the only
But I'm the one who's crawling on the ground
When you say love makes the world go 'round


Hollaback Girl- Gwen Stefani
A few times I've been around that track
So it's not just gonna happen like that
Cause I ain't no hollaback girl
I ain't no hollaback girl


Untitled- Simple Plan
(My pinakafavorite song as of this moment!)
How could this happen to me
I made my mistakes
I’ve got no where to run
The night goes on
As I’m fading away
I’m sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me

Mabuhay!

Hello, beautiful people of the Philippines!! *waves beauty-queen style*

Whoopee, I sooo missed updating my blog, and I want to blog about several, several things! So much has happened since last week. I mean, summer's officially over and I somehow managed to drag my butt to school again. :)

Well, school started (kinda) last Wednesday, June, uhh, 8. For the first time in many years I actually got sleep before the first day. I discovered that my cruel teachers did not put me, Pearl, my two good friends Fiona and Meg and the rest of the group in one section. Gah. And my homeroom adviser is my Math teacher a few years back, and she's way nice. Only now, we're supposed to call her Teacher (name)! Seriously. We're all used to Ms/Mrs. (family name), then it became Ms/Mrs. (first name) and now TEACHER?! You. Have. To. Be. Kidding. Me. So I made a joke out of it and call my teachers in a childish voice (very good at it). Like kindergartners. Cute.

Had no classes Monday but wasn't able to blog because I went to the dentist. I'm going to wear those special retainers now, just when I sleep. Whoopee. Looking forward to it. NOT.

And, yeah, congratulations to my friends for being the class officers. Daryl, our VP last year, is now the President. Marvic is the VP, Charmagne is the secretary (again), Maureen is the treasurer, and Gabrielle is the assistant treasurer!! Yay, go Gabe!!

I'm auditioning for the Glee Club next week (explains the song *points below*), so good luck to me. AGAIN. AGAIN. AGAAAAIIN. And Josine, MYMP is not overrated. Well, that's your opinion.

Speaking of opinions, WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING TO THE PHILIPPINES?! I don't freaking know! I heard about this audio tape of PGMA and Garcilliano, and I think people are so making a big deal out of this. Way big. And now they want to impeach our president! Again?! Why, was it already proven that it was truly our president on that tape? And do we really need an impeachment issue right now? What about the Philippine economy!? What about the wages of the workers and the prices of the gasoline and the goods? What about them?! I so can't see why the people can't be united in order to move on as a country, but they sure are united when it comes to impeaching presidents. *blag*

Well, gotta go. I have to do my homework. But I just want to say that I'm so starting this school year right by being optimistic. I realized now that last year, I was being too pessimistic. Look what happened to my Math grade.

Booya!

Tell Me Where it Hurts...

Why is that sad look in your eyes
Why are you crying?
Tell me now, tell me now
Tell me, why you're feelin' this way
I hate to see you so down, oh baby

Is it your heart
Oh, that's breakin' all in pieces

Yes, I'll do my best to make the tears all go away
Just tell me where it hurts
Now, tell me
And I'll love you with a love so tender
Oh and if you let me stay
I'll love all of the hurt away

Where are all those tears coming from
Why are they falling?
somebody, somebody, somebody left your heart in the cold
You just need somebody to hold on, baby
Give me a chance to put back all the pieces
Take hold of your heart
Make it just like new
There's so many things that I can do

Why don't you tell me where it hurts now, baby
And I'll do my best to make it better
Yes, I'll do my best to make the tears all go away
Just tell me where it hurts
Now, tell me
And I'll love you with a love so tender
Oh and if you let me stay
I'll love all of the hurt away

Is it your heart
Oh, that's breakin' all in pieces
Makin' you cry
Makin' you feel blue
Is there anything that I can do

Why don't you tell me where it hurts now, baby
And I'll do my best to make it better
Yes, I'll do my best to make the tears all go away
Just tell me where it hurts
Now, tell me
And I'll love you with a love so tender
Oh and if you let me stay
I'll love all of the hurt away

Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me baby
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
And I'll do my best to make it better
Yes, I'll do my best to make the tears all go away
Just tell me where it hurts
Now, tell me
And I love you with a love so tender
Oh, and if you let me stay
I'll love all of the hurt away...

Bantayan: The Second Time Around

Bantayan: The Second Time Around

I am back! :)

I arrived yestie late afternoon from Bantayan, and my weekend was THE BOMB!! Gosh, I don't even know where to start, but we'll start from the beginning.

We left the city at around 3:40 in the morning Saturday. We were all squished in the car: me, my brother Nico, my aunt Joyce, her husband uncle Ding, his mother Lola Mat, and his two other siblings Arnold and Arianne. We left my other uncle behind because we wouldn't fit into the car anymore! And you might wonder why my mother never comes along. It's because she has work and she was never fond of the beach anyway.

Two hours into the car trip and I had to let uncle Ding stop the car because I wanted to barf. Seriously. I don't usually barf on travels but I guess we all have our moments. We arrived at Hagnaya Wharf at 6:15, just in time for the seven a.m. ferry, which was already full. The ferry ride took around 45 minutes and it was sooo slow. Well, patience never was my virtue anyway. We arrived at the Santa Fe pier 7:45 and went to ride a tricycle to Kota Beach. I was so amazed at the tricycle! It could seat around eight people! It looks like a mini-jeep! Soooo cute.

Checked at the Yooneek (pronounced "unique") Beach Resort. Tres, tres cool. The room wasn't necessarily big but it was enough for the seven of us. AND it's way nice. We immediately changed into our suits and swam at the sea. The sea wasn't so nice unlike the last time because of the winds but it was still nice. There were totally huge waves, some of them bigger than me! No kidding. I mean, hello, I know I am short but talking about these waves, man, am I waaay short. So since we couldn't do much swimming we decided to hang around the sandbar where all of us got our fill of white sand. We also rented this really really big ring and my brother and I rode it ala-banana boat style. Needless to say, I got minor bruises because of it, but it was fun. We kept falling from the ring because of the waves. Super cool.

We ate brekkie and went to the town proper, where we visited one of the oldest Churches in the Philippines. We also crossed the plaza and went to the market where my aunt bought crabs and fish, etc. But before that, we visited another beach resort which boasts of an underground cave, the Ogtong Resort. Having never seen an actual cave before, I was way excited. We payed for the entrance fee and went to the entrance, which was a set of stairs leading to an underground freshwater river. Very beautiful, but the cave was full of people! I mean, the water was already blurry and this little boy even stood on top of the stairs and peed- right in front of us. Needless to say, we were horrified and asked the resort to refund our entrance fees. So we went to the town instead.

But one thing pissed me off, by the way. Just because I am short doesn't mean you could pass me off as an eleven-year-old kid to get discounts! Seriously. I mean, hello! I am pretty much a teen, just a short one. And, like, hello, HOW many people would fall for that little fib, that I am an eleven-year-old kid instead of a teen?

Oh, God. Don't answer that.

When we got back to our hotel room--which is funny by the way, because instead of room numbers they use the alphabet, and ours was letter "E." Whoa, that was the first time I checked into a hotel with the alphabet instead of numbers!-- the sea had calmed down because it was low tide. So we got to swim around a bit. My aunt caught three jellyfishes! Ugh. Tres horrible. And while walking on the shore, we saw this really big purple jellyfish!! I swear, I couldn't even describe how big it was. It was already dead, because a big stone was on top of it and this horrible pinkish liquid was squirting out of it. My aunt (brave woman!!) got a stick and rolled the jellyfish upside down. Horrible!

Night came and we ate dinner at the hotel room. That's when some of us started to get bored so they decided to hang around the lobby and have a beer or two. My uncle ordered me and Arianne a bottle of San Miguel Light to share. Seriously. And we also used the internet! Haha, they had an internet cafe right there! So I made Arianne an e-mail since she wanted one so badly.

Next day, got woken up by my uncle at eight. We have to go swimming now, he says, because we're going to leave at eleven. It's high tide again, and the waves were more furious than ever. I was very exhausted because just when you're recovering from your wipe-out from one wave comes another. Even the sandbar wasn't an option, but it was fun jumping around the waves. We ate brekkie and went back to the pier, where we boarded the 12 noon ferry. It was still eleven so-and-so but the ferry was already filled! What time DO they board? Nine?!

Our second ferry ride took longer because of the waves. The little boat was bouncing from side to side and most of us got a little seasick so most of us slept, except for a bunch of drunk people at the back. We arrived at Hagnaya past one and drove back to the city. Whoopee. Didn't barf this time.

Hay.

I can't summon an ounce of creativity where my blog template is concerned.

I can't summon any positive energy to do some things I need to do before school starts.

I feel so drained, I don't know what to do anymore.

Hay.
