The Benefits of Oregano

Oregano (Scientific name: Origanum vulgare) is also known as Wild Marjoram, Mountain Mint, Origanum, Wintersweet and Winter Marjoram.

A picture began circulating in November. It should be "The Picture of the Year," or perhaps, "Picture of the Decade." It won't be. In fact, unless you obtained a copy of the paper, you probably will never see it.

Tracey Connelley, Baby P's Evil Mom, Shows NO Remorse

I have never been affected by any story as much as Baby P's story has affected me. Yesterday evening, I found myself sobbing twice! I just can't get over the sheer horror of the story.

Baby P's Murderers -- Why Are They Being Protected?

In my country, it has never happened before that the media and the people have been forbidden to actually reveal the names and faces of TC and SB, the murderers of Baby P.

That Winter The Wind Blows Finale: Did Oh Soo Die?

Over the holy week break, I spent the entire four days just watching the 15 episodes of this Korean show. Yes, I am a self-confessed Korean drama addict. I already have my favorite actors and actresses; albeit, I don’t know their names.

Erbe, actually, is doubting my sexual preference, and actually accused me of being a freakin' homo. hehehe..

Well, am I or am I not?

What do you think baba? hmmm...

Labuyo..awwww shiiiiiiit!

I have noticed that I have people reading my posts, although I am completely baffled as to who and why.. Hell, this is all about my crap. So, if you're reading this, please leave a message.

Anyways, I am currently waiting for Erbe to finish his work.. so, this entry is just an incessant rambling of a scatterbrain. amen.

It's freakin' raining again. This worries me.

For the past week, our house is damn flooded.

Sometimes up to my ankle,
up to my knees,
up to my neck. -- this last one as you could imagine is my exaggeration.

Anyways, it is flooded.

Thank you Labuyo.

I live in a place where floods are as natural as breathing. In fact, in our house, we have finally managed to have a system for flood-attack. I have survived a number of floods -- but this last one sucks!


Oh, it's no biggie really. It just happened that it was the damn fiesta when the freakin' flood decided to happily visit every nooks of our house.

We celebrated the fiesta with damn-up-to-my-ass water inside the house.

You could just imagine:
Visitor: "Manay Iday! Maray na fiesta po!"
Me: "Dagus po, tulay tulay na po kamo dian. O baka po mahulog kamo! Dagus po, makitaas po kang bitis nindo sa tukawan ta baka alipungahun kamo! Uya po, o pritos na galunggong! Pasensia na po ta dai kami nakaluto, si lutuan po kaya naanod kang baha, pati naman po si dapug-dapug mi..."

You could just imagine.

Anyways, there goes my rambling..

To My sanity's shelter

I think a friend of mine has gotten married..

My friend told me the last time we talked that the plans were there -- marriage.

My friend called a few days before the Big day.

I haven't heard from my friend since then.

I saw a picture and I think the plans were pushed through.

I know my friend would have wanted another story..
I know my friend's heart probably belonged to someone else..
I know though that some things need to be done.

I pray that if I am right, wherever you, whoever you're with...
I pray that there's a part of you, even a little, which is at peace with "it".

I understand what needs to be done.
I just pray that you are happy.

You know who you are..

Puchang buhay to!

Image Hosted by

When I was in elementary, there were three things I liked to do:
1. Play "agawan base" with my friends versus the grade 5 boys.
2. Hang out with the "Strikers". Sue me! That was our name! Blame it on Meilen.
3. Watched Batibot.

Worries: None… Oh yeah! Failing my Chinese subject was a constant worry.

That was it!

When I was in High School, there were four things I liked to do:
1. Stalk out my crushes..hehehe.. (FYI: I made lots of enemy with one crush I had)
2. Hang out with the Strikers - Che, Tin, Nette, Lala, Mia, and I.
3. Watched Power Rangers on the tube.

1. Failing Math and Science subjects.
2. "Bugay! Nalingawan ko na naman magpadentista! " – I was supposed to report for braces tightening.

TRIVIA: I wore freakin' braces from the time I was 13-years-old to until I was 21!

When I was in college my interests were:
1. Hanging out/cutting classes with Tin, Gui, and Setay.
2. SJF
3. The existence/nonexistence love life.

But I guess my worries were a little bit more serious. .
1. I was worried about Boinx getting drunk AGAIN and going to class drunk!
2. I questioned my faith – my religion.
3. Mga tanong sa pagbubuntis, PMS, pag-inom, at sigarilyo – not that I ever took up the habits.
4. I had intertwining love-life with Bessie!
5. He likes me/He likes me NOT! Most of the time NOT!

Pero ngayon naman, I have these interests:
1. Sweldo.
2. Magnegosyo kami ni E.
3. Law books.
4. Work.
5. Getting married bago ma-ANGOT!
6. Pinoy Big Brother! Hahaha! O another? ! JOLOGS na kung JOLOGS!

My worries:
1. Cycles of Mr. Ursua. -- lam nia na kung sino sia.. URSUA!
2. Na di na naman magswesweldo ang opisina!

NOTE: With all due respect, akala ko po ba bago magtraslacion may sweldo na! Eh, bad trip naman! Last month pang-sweldo ko yun ah! Magkikinsenas na naman!

3. Kung bagsak ako sa Tax 1 at di makakapag-graduate!
4. Kung matatangal si Uma at Nene – my favorites!

Eh, bale yan lang naman..
I was just thinking of an entry na bagay sa swaying tree na nakapost sa taas..

Saka bale, yung.. la pa ring sweldo.. kaya nanawagan sa lahat ng pinagkakautangan ko:
1. Tinay
2. Oying
3. Bobet
4. Tin-tin
5. Sussette
6. Jason
7. Pipo
8. Tikya
9. Isagani
10. Emie – P20 ata di ba?

Pwede ba, eto o sainyo na ang kaluluwa ko! Hehehe..

The truth freakin' hurts.

sometimes.. it gets too exhausting for words..
you know how it is, right?
When u just want to let go.. u know...
Just. Let. Go.
But then when it comes down to it, you just can't.
Because although sometimes it drains every freakin' emotion from you, every thought..
It still remains what it is -- something wonderful. still. always.
So u hold on.
Because it is worth it.
Like I am holding on.
So so tightly.

Battle of the Dating Services

Image Hosted by

Do you know what is better than getting mad when you're furious?

Getting EVEN!

One day I was busily checking out Erbe's email.. (Sue me! He does that with mine as well!) Anyways, I was checkin' them out when I noticed an email from

Hmm.. a dating service..

Apparently, Erbe has joined this service way before we got hooked up together.. Sue me again, but I opened the damn thing. Being actually curious as to how many women/girls would dig my fiancee, I decided to post a picture of him.

Later, I checked it out with Erbe... Damn! A Lot of Women actually did liked him! A lot of Women actually have great taste! Hehehe.. Shucks! Many responded and was sending Erbe an icebreaker.. I guess this was very good indeed for my freakin' fiancee's ego, that he actually got quite busy completing his stagnant profile and checkin' out women..

I raised my eyebrow at that but I forgave him.

Although, I gotta admit it irked the hell outtame.

As weeks go by, I watched him opened his account, checking out women after women after women.. and actually sending them icebreakers..

The "irked" turned irritated..

Until I was simmering..

But what actually pushed me to my limits was when I found out that he actually sent requests to his sister and a friend to write a recommendation for him! As-freakin'-IF?!?

That does it!

Now, I happened to know that there is a site called where foreigners check out Filipina women! My sister in her quest for "the guy" has joined this blasted thing. No, my sister is not old, fat, nasty smelling, or downright desperate! She is actually pretty, in fact, but she just enjoys being checked out and actually liked by these guys. Chalked it up to women's ego.

And so to get even, I signed up to Lalalaland of foreigners! Pick me up Joe!

So what is my dingdong of a fiancee up to now?

Knowing how I have this incredible fascination for foreigners (Thanks to Mills & Boons and Harlequins 101), he panicked!

Well, he wants me to compromise. He wants me to choose between this:
1. He is going to erase his LoveHappens account and I am going decease from pursuing my revenge.
2. We are going to still enjoy the damn thing as long as we don’t act on it. Yeah sure! When the hell freezes over!

Did I choose? compromise? Hell no! Of course, I'm enjoying getting even! Serves him right!

NOTE: If you happen to see my picture in Filipinaheart, have mercy on me! Do not forsake me! I am merely getting revenge!
