Amidst this pandemic they cry, “Let us out! Let us out!”

Amidst this pandemic they cry, “Let us out! Let us out!" They are pleading. And I could not contain them anymore. It seems out of place to be writing these but maybe not. My thoughts keep screaming like they would explode if not put into paper. One by one, let us try: I was wondering, … Continue reading Amidst this pandemic they cry, “Let us out! Let us out!”

DOWN WITH THREE

I’m down with three priorities in life: • To stay alive out of good diet; • To be able to save money for the future (or at least be debt free); and • To give love to my family. It's safe for you to assume, I've had enough.

Of Filial Piety

I already know something about filial piety. I know as well you already know this. But I have come to understand something more about it. I recently got into some trouble. A scandal. Financial scandal, if you ask me. During those days I prayed very hard. And very hard that I almost always cried whenever … Continue reading Of Filial Piety

Søren Kierkegaard

I have not actually read the works of this profound and prolific writer. And I am not here to write a book review either. I just feel inspired by this “buddy.” Something about his biography hooked me up to his being. What I know I did to know him was move my eyes from top … Continue reading Søren Kierkegaard

And I recite, “The Lord is my shepherd…”

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will … Continue reading And I recite, “The Lord is my shepherd…”

I was havin' a real hard time synthesizing all the things happening to me these days when suddenly these students appear! They were my students in Basic Calculus back in 2018 and I remember having long, honest, animated conversations, discussion with them. They, and few more from their section, were a set of scholarly and … Continue reading Conversations Paused, Then Continued: Them “Mark” and “Colline,” From STEM 11 W 2017-2018

Of Huts and Shadows

When I was young, I dreamt of fancy things, like a couch, a fancy living room, a glamorous lifestyle, and so on. And I just sigh, I don't know why. Fast forward to these days, I delight whenever I see posts on FB that include pictures of my hometown. The old huts, the rather small … Continue reading Of Huts and Shadows

We have to be broke to blog (or maybe, vlog?)

I am not actually good at writing but it does not necessarily mean that I could not write or should not write or will not write. And literally who doesn’t know how to write, right? One could just hold a pen or ballpen then put it on top of a paper, move the hands, then … Continue reading We have to be broke to blog (or maybe, vlog?)
