The Truth on Winning

I had those moments when I feel so beaten up... when I fall down unto my knees over and over again. Sometimes I even want to give up on something.

Those were the moments when I feel that am not doing well enough that I often find myself thinking... questioning. "What's the point of keeping on when I often lose the game?"

But thank you to that someone who uttered this lines to me: "What makes one a winner is not just being on top of the race... but staying in the race... and getting up when you just stumbled."

Hmmm... something to ponder. :)

The Good Life

When everything around me seem so vast, I usually find myself losing track of what is important, and ending up not knowing what to do… right there, I know I am in desperate need for simplicity.

One person always remind me of how wonderful simplicity is… A friend I never expected to stick around when things around me seem to fail. He was the one who introduced me to “having pleasure with little things.” The Little things that I once never appreciated because I thought of success as wanting more and having more, without thinking that little things make up the big things. But through him, I learned that success could also mean contentment.

He is an image of a friend with a genuine heart… thank you… for just being there. :)

In the Actuality of Things

So weird that you are sometimes taken off guarded by things taking place, when you have been trying to get ready for it all your life. Sometimes, it's even hard to accept seeing it right through your very eyes for the very first time, even if you have been aware about it all along. Weird that you feel like exploding and yet you can't utter even a single word...

Happy Birthday Sissy

Today is one special day for my Sissy... I wanna take this opportunity to blog about her... well she's my best enemy when we were younger and a good friend at the same time...

As a person? She excels in everything she does... I rarely say this but I am so damn proud of her for just being the best of her... I'm proud that she found a good husband, a loving beautiful kids... and a good career... Happy Birthday Sissy!!! Love you :)

On a Lovely Morning

Left Davao at 5 in the morning for another challenge in filmmaking...

I never Imagined how good can a sunrise get until today... And today is unlike the ordinary days... because I am taking the time to see the beauty that surrounds me. I am just so overwhelmed about how lovely can a morning gets... I am at the moment staring at the sceneries as dawn breaks into morning :)

A thought

When one has a heavy heart for a quite a time, He forgets how its like to be truly happy... In fact, happiness is just a word.

A Visit on the Matigsalog Tribe

Finally… after weeks of being so busy with work and stuff… I finally found the time to log on to my pc and write something about what has been going on with my life at the moment…

Oh well… what can you say, im once again inspired to write about the place I’ve been to… and the people I get across with… hmmm… I just cant get over the fact that I can still actually see people doing those rituals and stuff… man… with all the changes in our modern world… I never ever imagined there are still people who keep up with the traditions… like having to perform some ritual before hunting or what…

Well anyway… allow me to introduce the place and the tribe I paved a visit with Young Advocates for Peace people… Kuya Rey, Ayyi, Ainess and Aili… through these pictures J
