Jeepney

Jeepney

Sabi nila malapit ka ng lumisan
Sabi nila unti-unti ika’y pilit na kakalimutan
Paano na ang mga alaala na iyong ibinahagi
Sa mga panahong iyong inilagi

Paslit pa lamang nung una kitang nasilayan
Tuwang-tuwa sa bawat pag-abot ng bayad
Na parang maliit na konduktor kung umasta
Sinasabayan ang pagyugyug ng metal na sasakyan

Ang mga mahika ng pag-guhit sa iyong gilid
Ang mga palamuting “gawang pinoy” ang nakasabit
Ang mga rosaryo na gumagabay sa iyong pagkalakbay
At ang nag-iisang KABAYO sa harap na laging nakaagapay

Ang mga nakakatuwang mga karatula
Na di mo alam kung nang-iinis
O sadyang pampapawi lamang ng pagod sa buong magdamag
“Hatak mo, Stop Ko!, Basta Seksi Libre, Bayad muna BAGO TULOG, God Knows Judas not pay”

Bitbit mo ang karanasan ng aking pagkaestudyante
Ang mga mala biyaheng langit mong patakbo
Sabay ng tugtugan na mga hugot song na El Bimbo
“Aba kumapit ka baka ika’y tumilapon”

Ang pilit mong pagsiksik sa “LIMA PA KASYA”
kahit na hindi mo na mai-upo ang pwet mo
Sige siksik pa, kahit na nakasabit ka lamang sa hawakan
At ang mga paa mo’y manhid na sa bigat ng iyong katawan

May mga oras naman na ang takbo ni manong tsuper kasing bagal ng pagong
Minsan pa’y nasasagap mo na ang chismisan sa katabi mo
At ang ibat-ibang amoy at bitbitin ng ibang pasahero nakasalamuha mo
Wala ka parin sa kinaroroonan mo

At ngayon, nagtatalo ang lahat at ika’y bibitawan na
Mga alaala ng nakaraan pilit ng tinatangal
Paano na ang mga umaasa sa iyong pag-takbo
Bukas ika’y wala na at papalitan na ng bago

Ikaw ang simbolo ng bawat Pilipino
Kahit na maliit at metalica,
ika’y nakikipagsabayan sa laki ng mga train to BUSan
hindi nagpapaawat kahit na mundo makabago na

walang kupas ang tirada
Ang nag-iisang JEEP ng masa
Isang masigabong palakpakan
sa nag-iisang Hari ng kalsada

TOWER by Janine Kaye

Tower
I was standing next to you
Super proud and tall
Looking at you with so much grace
Made me remember the reason I fall

Suddenly wondering if people ever noticed
The beauty that shines within you
So I tell you just stay next to me
And feel my love and security

Because if you look deeper into me
You could see that special moment in time
Where I stand next to you

Proclaiming my vows

CANMAKE: Create Asian Beauty Talk with Ashley Dy

Yes! After how many months, hello event! Visited one of Kawaii Ph Leaders Ashley Dy on her talk about Asian Beauty, CANMAKE booth at SM Makati Ground floor by 2pm. I was so much in hurry due to extreme traffic on my way there and even if I was already on the go, I still came late! Good thing the talk started when I came!!! Exclamation point!
On the first part of the talk, Ashley talks about the difference of makeup beauty in Korea and in Japan. Even if their makeups are almost all natural there’s still a huge difference when it comes to matching nude colors to kinds of lipsticks. I wasn’t aware about anything about it because I don’t know anything about makeup and it looks like I am hearing alien words from Ashley because of it! 



Good thing she brought magazines that shows difference in makeup beauty and it’s makeup styles.




To make the talk even more knowledgeable for her listeners, she also demonstrated how to put your all natural make-up on your daily routine, from the shades for the eyebrows to the color of the cheeks to how to match your very own Canmake lip tints, it was all tackle in one sitting.








The talked didn’t last that long and I felt like bitin hahahaha, makeup is so amusing for a girl like me who's still practicing her makeup skills, I’m still in awed on how makeup matches your skin. But since I am morena, I still find it hard to match makeup colors on my skin.

Good thing CanMake got you cover. There are makeup that are suitable for your skin and could match your hair color as well. At the same time Canmakeup can easily blend with your skin color at the same time blend on itself. You don’t have to worry that much if you’re morena or not. Thanks to the approachable ladies who also help you in choosing the perfect makeup that is suitable for you.



Thank you Ashley and Congratulations!! Hoping to attend more of your talks in the future! AJA! Thank you Canmake Philippines for opening this talk to all of us!!
(BONUS: I also had the chance to meet Korea in Manila UnnieS!)

Lady of Lourdes Grotto Shrine



Last week, my mom, my aunt and I visited Lady of Lourdes Grotto Shrine at Tungkong Mangga, San Jose Del Monte Bulacan. I was so excited because I have always wanted to visit the Shrine where my mom used to tell stories how they visited it during Holy Week when they we’re young.

The shrine was built during the 1960’s; “Anita Guidote-Guanzon, who had the statue built in 1961 after she was pronounced cured from cancer of the uterus, after being given just six months to live” –(Joy Rojas (Contributor) - @inquirerdotnet

After being cured, Anita Guidote-Guanzon together with her husband Horatio converted their 20 hectare family farm into a public shrine and placed the marble statue of Lourdes at the niche of the rocky mountainside to be seen and prayed by millions of devotees that travel from different parts of the Philippines on Holy Week.  Because of it, there are also testimonies of different visitors who had been cured from their ailment (there are also some “saklays” on the left side of the mountainside that symbolizes testimonies of being cured). My grandfather was one of the visitors who had been cured from his Kidney sickness and according to my mom; from then on they become devotees of the Lady of Lourdes.


(Main "Grotto" of Lady of Lourdes - the Replica of Lourdes in France)


("Ang tubig na bukal" which said to be the water of healing)

















As we entered the Shrine, my aunt, my mom and I first prayed to the statue of Lady of Lourdes and then walked to visit the Stations of the Cross (where life size statues of Jesus Christ procession was built), and as we we’re visiting each station, there was a mother dog who accompanied us on every station (if only I have one photo of that brown dog). 



The site was breathtaking, there are also like “Twilight” feel forest where my Mom used to tell me how their whole family sit and eat their food while waiting and taking some rest before starting their walk. 



There is also a huge replica of the rosary where you can also pray.

Went at the top of the rocked mountain to pray and touch the Lady of Lourdes with our handkerchief. 



After the long walk, we prayed at the Lady of Lourdes Church and did some quick snap shots before we left.




The place was really solemn and it gives me a lot of goose bumps and chills. Especially when we went at the top of the rocked mountain where we prayed and wiped our handkerchief on her statue, it was super calm (for me my heart was pounding with joy just by simply touching and praying to her). Despite on a very hot noon, I wasn’t perspiring that much. The place also gives serenity and a perfect place to pray.
