Tuloy Ang Buhay

Tapos na ang Pasko at may bagong Taon na ulit.

Umalis at balik-trabaho na ulit ang unico hijo ko sa Manila at balik-eskwela naman si Doter ko kanina.

Haw abawt si Mamaru?

Eto…balik din sa dating gawi. Hehe.

Balik ulit sa normal everyday na gawain at iba’t-ibang kashitan sa buhay. Wala akong reso-resolution kiyeme ngayong taon. Basta para sa akin….tuloy-tuloy lang ang buhay.

Heniwey, nagbaklas at nagligpit na ako ng mga Xmas abubots ko.

MaruXmasDIY-001

Eto ang ilan sa mga Xmas abubot ko na puro D.I.Y. karamihan.

MaruXmasDIY

Puro mga sariling gawa ko lang ang mga dekorasyones ko dito sa mansiones ko dahil…siempre,  wala akong panggastos eh iba na ang matipid sa gastos, di ba? Sus, ako feh! Ganyan naman talaga kaming mayayaman, kaming mga nasa alta sosyedadAu naturel na sa amin ang pagiging matipid. Chos!

MaruXmasDIY-002

Kahit nga yung mga pambalot ko ng mga gips noong Pasko…mga recycled ribbons lang ang ginamit ko. Again, nagtitipid eh.

Kaya mga ineng, wag nyo itatapon yung mga ribbon na ipinangtatali sa box tuwing bibili kayo ng cake gaya nang sa Red Ribbon. 😀 Dahil sa panahon ng kapaskuhan…may paggagamitan kayo ulit ng mga yun.

MaruXmasDIYwrap

Pattern paper lang din ang ginamit ko as gift wrapper last Xmas kasi sa halagang P1.50 lang ang isa, eh madami na ang nababalot. Sticker paper naman ang ginamit ko as gift tag. More or less mga P70.00 lang lahat-lahat ang nagastos ko sa gift wrapping tralala ko. Sabi nga nung pauso na kasabihan, diska-diskarte din pag may time.

Again, it’s a brand new year! So. . .

today

Ewan ko sa inyo kung ano mga plano nyo sa buhay nyo. ‘La ako paki! (Joke!)

Basta ako. . .simple lang ang plano ko. Gusto ko lang mabuhay. Hahaha! Meynteyn!

Happy New Year, bitches en sonabagans!

My Kind Of Man

1

“My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and children. She lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds. She got very skinny and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the mornings and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of a break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, and she stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon… But then I decided to act. After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on earth. She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her. I began to shower her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised and pleased her every minute i could. I gave her a lot of gifts and i lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became better. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she could love that much. And then I realized one thing: the woman is the reflection of her man.” ~ Brad Pitt about Angelina Jolie. :)

Walis-Tingting

As of this writing, nasa ulo ko pa rin ang korona at sa akin pa rin nakasabit ang mga sash na may letrang “Miss Matiyaga 2014” at “Miss Masipag 2014” dito sa barangay namin. Charot!

Eto ay dahil sa imbes na bumili, putragis, ako ay nagtiyaga at nagsipag gumawa ng sariling WALIS-TINGTING para magamit dito sa bahay. Hahaha!

Pinaputol ko kasi ang kaisa-isa kong puno ng niyog dito sa lupain ko.

Imbes na itapon agad ang mga sanga at dahon, naisipan kong pakinabangan muna at gumawa ng mga walis.

Aver! Inguso nyo nga sa akin kung sino diyan sa mga kakilala ninyong single moms na kasing-sarap ko ang may talent sa paggawa walis-tingting?! Hahaha! At nagyabang talaga ha.

Pang 1-year supply lang naman ang nagawa ko.

 stick broom (2)

O ha! Sey nyo!

Ang hapi ko kasi naka-save ako ng pambili ng walis para sa bakuran ko  at hindi nabawasan ang milyones kong kayamanan. Hahaha. Ako na talaga!

Masikat Na Araw

DSC_0004 

Maganda ang weather ngayon dito sa bansa namin na kung tawagin ay – Mindanao.

Masikat at maaraw. Kaya alam ko na maraming mister ngayon ang nagbubunyi sa kani-kanilang pamamahay. Malamang maluha-luha pa sila sa saya ngayon dahil madaling matutuyo ang mga labada nila. Hihi!

Sana maaliwalas ulit ang panahon sa mga susunod na araw.

Samantala, last week may nabasa akong chika ng PAGASA. “PAGASA: Expect a warmer Christmas season.” Ang ibig ba sabihin nyan eh hindi ko mailalabas at maisusuot ang mga posh winter clothing ko sa darating na BER months? Ganeern?! Charot!

 

 

oOo

Dahil Sa K-Drama

i love kdrama

Nakaka-stress yung naka-upo ka sa harap ng ‘pyuter, titig na titig sa blinking cursor ng blankong page ng monitor at walang maisip na mai-type na kwento o tsismis man lang.

“AJHDS USYF USYSU SUWYDWHDSJBS SKJAJD WEONFOIFOIJHX NS!” <—- yan palagi ang mga letrang nagrarambol sa loob ng bungo ko noon. Wala akong maiporma na saktong words. Punyeta!

Hays…minutes feel like hours. Hours feel like days. Days feel like months. Months feel like years!  Kelan kaya ako ulit sisigla sa pagbo-blog? Yan ang lagi kong tanong sa sarili.

Nagi-guilty na ako ng todo kasi puro jokes na lang ang laman ng blog ko. Kunsabagay, repleksyon din ‘to ng buhay ko ngayon, na parang isang joke lang. Naks!

May time na pag tinitingnan ko ‘tong blog ko, halos wala na syang pinagkaiba sa refrigerator namin na pag binuksan mo, puro tubig ang laman. Boring. Hindi mo man lang makuhang maglaway at ma-excite. Walang interesante.

Ilang beses din ako nagplanong pasiglahin ng konti ‘tong blog ko kasi mahal ko talaga ‘to. Kaso lagi naman akong sawi.

Tinatamad ako agad bago pa man mag umpisa! Ni hindi man lang ako makakuha ng GANA mag-type sa keyboard. O baka naman sabog lang talaga ako palagi netong mga nakaraang buwan, walang lakas kasi lagi akong bangenge!

Kasalanan ‘to ng mga KOREANS! Hmp!

Huh!?

Oo, ng mga koreano!

kdramas

Akalain mo ba naman na sa kapapanood ko ng mga online korean movies and dramanovelas ay biglang nabago ang takbo ng pamumuhay ko since June!

Naging SUGAPA ako watching k-dramas day and night, sa totoo lang. Uulitin ko, day and night!

Kinain nila ng todo ang oras at panahon ko. Tumigil bigla ang mundo ko sa iisang pwesto at wala na ako halos magawa.

Magkukwento pa ako sa inyo next time ha.

Samantala, till here na lang muna ako ha, dahil oras na naman para manood ng sinubaybayan kong online korean drama.

Annyonghi Gaseyo! (Haha! Kitams! Alam ko na ang GOODBYE in korean.)

 

P.S.

And to all my loyal Maruism readers… saranghe! Charot! 😀

Egg Rolls and Hero

Kanina lang, nagbate ako ng itlog. 😛

Egg Rolls (4)

Masarap sa almusal ang binateng itlog.

Egg Rolls (2)

…at gawing Egg Rolls.

Egg Rolls (3)

Kasamang sangkap sa binateng itlog, minced carrots, red bell pepper and onion leaves + seasoning.

Siempre, solb na solb ang kain ko. Feeling ko ang yaman-yaman ko, as usual. Hihihi!

Egg Rolls (5)

At habang nagbabate ako ng itlog kanina sa harap ng kalan, hinaharana ako ng kantang ‘to as my background music…

This is not a love song, but a song about growing up and taking on responsibilities. Nakakagana lang makinig.

Play it, beybi!

HERO (by Family of the Year)

“Your masquerade
I don’t wanna be a part of your parade
Everyone deserves a chance to
Walk with everyone else.”

— Me either, don’t want to conform to what others think I should. 

Have a good Friday, lovelies!

Morning Reading

Hindi lahat ng leksyon sa buhay ay natututunan sa loob ng klasroom.

Hindi lahat ng sikat at mga nagtagumpay sa buhay ay nakapag-aral.

 

My morning reading habang nagkakape + pandesal…

Pasintabi sa mga guro. :)

 

Tutoring Needed

Source: Dylan Morris, writer

Teach me teacher, I ask.
Teach me the ropes of knowledge that will lead me to success,
Teach me how to cope in the modern age and nothing less,
Teach me how to enjoy myself and to stay calm with what is happening,
Teach me teacher, teach me, because with this current education system I am not happy.

I have a few questions for you teacher I hope that could help me:
The first of which, is what will make me successful?
Is it through filling my head with facts to write down for a three hour exam?
Or is it through inspiring my mind where I believe that anything I want to achieve, I can?
Is it through accepting mediocrity because I’m not passionate about my school work?
Or through creative individuality because loving something I do is the best perk?

Sittin’ in class, watching that clock tick…
Because my current teacher is boring these students to bits.
As a teacher, I wouldn’t stop the kid from sketching on his page, from writing a poem,
From kicking a football, or discovering the unknown,
I try in every single test, just to find out that 100,000 kids got the same grade on the exam,
To turn on the T.V. and see people starving in Africa and nobody has brains to figure out the problems in Afghanistan.
Yet, we still learn to tackle problems like to solve for ‘X’.
How did we get so naive to believe that the bubble of knowledge in what’s presented in school is the only resources we have to success?

The answer is simple; we just have to look,
Because the only knowledge we have ever been taught is the ones that we have wrote learn from a book.
Now we need to change our ways before our generation gets old,
Someone help because school doesn’t prepare us for our biggest test of them all which is survival- which you’ll never be told.

Teach me teacher- teach me.
Teach me your ways, the exam says I need a tutor and to study for days.

So if I don’t follow what’s logical does that make it wrong, and if this poem was a song, do you think Steve Jobs would sing along? If experience teaches me I will listen,
Because I’m sick of being a slave to the education system.

So now I’ve come to the conclusion,
That higher education is just an illusion,
Because it comes at the expense of experience: the most brutal teacher that I’ll need to overcome,
So teach me teacher and I’ll apply that knowledge into wisdom.

Let’s teach our generation to pursue what they love and what makes them happy, to learn from experience, not from facts that our current teacher is teaching us.

“Education is when someone is willing to spend time learning about something- not because their teacher, parents, friends, or exam has made them- but simply because they enjoy what they’re doing”

Taon 2008

Kahuhugot ko lang sa piktyur na ‘to mula sa lumang baul ko na may nakatatak na markang-bungo at “Taon 2008″.

“I’m only a girl in a silly red shirt. Digging for kryptonite on this one way street. Only a girl in a funny red shirt. Looking for special things inside of me. It’s not easy. It’s not easy to be me.” #MeGanun? #LumangLarawan #SupermanLyricsNaMalimali

Habang tinititigan ko ang piktyur kong ‘to noon, na-realize ko…ang laki na pala ng inasenso ng ganda ko ngayon. Mas virginal-looking akong di hamak sa ngayon. Charot!

 

oOo
