(OLD BLOG) Men Are From Mars

Posted in Love, Own Story on April 4, 2010 by annepotz

Well, so to speak, i remember all my lessons in my Greek mythology class. Mars, also known as Ares is the god of war. Men in my own sense of description, are heartless creatures made to bring suffering to the female class. Their ruthlessness is so obvious that sometimes, we the females, don’t seem to notice. Why? Because we are madly in love with them. We offer all our bits and pieces to them, even the very edge of our hairs are devoured by these insensitive beasts. Hmm… Yes, women are from Venus, we were born to bring love and joy to the male gender. We were made to serve them, we satisfy their machismo. We pamper them with such things, but it is so unfair for us to be taken for granted by them. We are brutally abused, the worst is emotionally. Insensitive. Yes, they are. Will you not agree with me? Some women are victimized by their capriccios. Agree? Hey! Can’t you be serious in your relationships? We’re not toys! We’re not your robots. Curse all wicked men on earth, those that are so damn inconsiderate and self-centered that they fail to understand the hardships of women just to please them, love them, worship them. Men indeed, are from Mars…. Heartless, insensitive, brutal, selfish and blind. 🙂

(OLD BLOG) Damsel In Distress

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on April 4, 2010 by annepotz

I have been to insanity lately, if that’s what you’ll call it. I have been a wanderer to a great abyss and don’t know when will it end. I keep on chasing the answers that would help me find the great realization of my being, of love?.

Love was never what I thought it was. I have been, you know hoping for a hopeless romantic ending. Sabi nga sa Love Story na kanta ni Taylor Swift, he’ll be my prince and I will be his princess blah blah, basta ganun yung lyrics. And what I used to hear in fairy tales na famous line na, “..and they lived happily ever after..”, gusto ko pa ding malaman if it’s true.

Madami tayong naloloka sa love, not literally, of course. Lahat ng tao may kanya-kanyang ka-emo-han sa life sabi nga ni Chin sa akin kagabi… Kagabi nung nagdadrama na naman ako kay Chin kahit beforehand nyan, medyo nagkatampuhan kami, she still managed to listen to my woes and everything.

In times, we maybe so stupid to do some things for that damn four letter word, LOVE. Madami na akong kagagahan na ginawa dahil dyan. Lately, nagiging boring na. I wanna give up just like that. No fairy tale ending.

Bakit nga ba ako nag-iinarte this time? Wala gusto ko lang. You know yung feeling na gusto mong magseryoso tapos yung taong pinaglalaanan mo ng oras at panahon, cannot respond to your sentiment, your feelings, ika nga ng iba. Bakit ba kasi ang feelings na yan di natin nako-control?

Love has no boundaries. Yan natutunan ko yan lately. Na kahit na binigyan ka na ng limitations, you still go and play with fire. Masarap talaga ang bawal. It gives you an adrenaline rush. Parang buhay na buhay ang dugo mo sa katawan and then in the end kapag tapos na, doon ka magsisisi. Ang tao talaga, matigas ang ulo, at masasabi ko na ngang isa ako sa mga yun. Tapos in the end when you’re already in a deep shit loving that person na di naman kayang ireciprocate ang binibigay mong love, iiyak-iyak or maglalaslas ng pulso. Oh well, di pa naman ako umabot sa ganung point at wala akong balak. I still have my lucid intervals pa naman.

Kapag nalaman mong di rin pala mutual yung feelings nya para sa’yo, para ka lang sinaksak ng ice pick sa tagiliran. May sugat ka pero nagiging manhid at unti-unti ka nang pinapatay. Sabi nga ng isa kong friend, dapat kasi ikaw di mo hinahanap yung para sa’yo, kusang darating yan. Sabi ko naman, to hell with that, naiinip na ako. Ayan tuloy ang napala ko.

Kaya eto, para kong basag na ewan., trying to bring the pieces back in its place, learning the art of moving on with love and life. I am still on the hunt of that one person who will accept who I am and what I am.. To love and be loved in return, yun yun eh. Just for the sake of kasentihan, wala akong magawang outlet kundi ito lang.

Gising na, Pilipinas Kong Mahal

Posted in Own Story, philippines, Politics with tags , , , on March 19, 2010 by annepotz

Nais ko lamang ipabatid ang mga karumal-dumal na nangyayari sa ating bansang Pilipinas. Marahil nga, kahit sino man sa atin, kung ating susuriin, ang pamamalakad ng ating mga lider mula sa lokal hanggang nasyonal na posisyon ay sadyang napakahina. Mahina sa kadahilanang di naman nasusunod at naipapatupad ng maayos ang mga batas na nagagawa. Bagkus, sila pa nga ang lumalabag nito.

Ayoko na munang mag-Ingles, tutal naman, nasa Pilipinas naman tayo, marapat lamang na gamitin ko ang ating pambansang wika (pwede bang haluan kahit konti, mahirap mag-express eh). Di naman siguro kabawasan sa aking pagkatao kapag ako ay sumulat gamit ang ating sariling wika.

Sa ngayon, nalalapit na naman ang eleksyon. Marami na namang kandidato ang gustong bumango ang kanilang pangalan sa publiko. Kabilaan na ang mga kampanya para masungkit nila ang posisyon sa gobyerno. Isang posisyon na magbibigay sa kanila ng kapangyarihan at kayamanan. Huwag na tayong maging hunghang. Bihira na ngayon ang tumatakbo para magsilbi sa bayan. At mas marami ang tumatakbo sa isang posisyon para magpayaman at maging makapangyarihan. Di na nga uso ang salitang ‘public servant’ ngayon. Nabura na ata sa bukabularyo natin yan. Ang mga public servant kuno sa Pilipinas ay maihahalintulad mo sa isang elitista. Kasi sa aking palagay, di nila kayang lumebel sa karaniwang tao. Mas nagiging mapagmataas na sila kapag sila ay naluklok na sa kanilang posisyon. Nakakalimutan nila na ang mga taong iniisnob nila ay ang mga taong syang naging dahilan kung bakit sila nasa kapangyarihan.

Sa Pilipinas mo lang makikita ang mga ganitong scenario. Magtataka ka pa ba kung bakit tayo ay nahuhuli na sa pag-unlad? Ang Konstitusyon natin na syang batayan para sa pagtupad at pagsasabatas ng mga kautusan ay masyado na atang nakakalimutan. Kailangan pa atang isampal sa mga mukha nila ang libro para maalala nila na dapat ito ay sinusunod.

Kung pwede lang ipagsigawan sa harap mismo ng mga buwayang ito kung gaano kakapal ang kanilang mukha para magawa ang mga ganitong bagay. Kung ang lahat ng proseso sa Pilipinas ay nagagawa ng mabilisan. Oo, may mabilis naman sa Pilipinas kahit paano, ito ay yung pangungurakot nila. Mabilis sila magbulsa ng mga pondo ng gobyerno. Mabilis din lalo  na sa palakasan at pag-unlad ng mga sarili nilang pamilya, at yung sila lamang ang makikinabang.

Paano na tayo nyan? Kung sa susunod na anim na taon at sa mga susunod pang dekada, ito at ito ang mga pangyayari? Baka mamulat na lang tayo bigla, walang-wala nang natira sa Pilipinas kundi ang dagat ng basurang punung-puno ng buwaya (pahiram ng linya).

Hindi ko naman nilalahat ang mga nagsisilbi sa ating gobyerno. May ilan pang natitira na may konsensya at paninindigan bilang isang makataong kawani ng ating gobyerno. Pero mahirap nga lang silang hagilapin.

Ngayong darating na eleksyon, sana naman sa gabay ng ating Lumikha, maging maayos ang lahat (asa pa ako). Kung minsan, gusto din nating umasa na may pagbabago pa nga na magaganap sa Pilipinas, yung maging abot-kamay natin ang kaunlaran, dahil sa sipag, tiyaga, galing at talino na walang bahid ng pangungurakot at katiwalian. Sana ang maihalal na Presidente ay yung may konsensya at pagmamalasakit sa kanyang bayan. Wala namang imposible sa dasal, lalung-lalo na kay Bro. J At dapat, matuto rin tayo na magdisiplina ng ating mga sarili bilang ordinaryong Pilipino. Kailangang sumunod tayo sa mga batas. Di naman kaya ng sinuman ang isang tungkulin kung walang pakikipagtulungan ang kanyang nasasakupan. Magtiwala tayo at wag masyadong maging reklamador. Itapon na natin ang ningas kugon attitude kasi di naman ito nakakatulong. Kung ano ang inumpisahan, dapat tinatapos. At huwag tayong umasa lamang sa mga nanunungkulan, ang pag-unlad naman natin ay nagsisimula sa ating sarili.

Captured on a Canvas

Posted in Love, Own Story, Uncategorized with tags , on March 5, 2010 by annepotz

Broken hearts…

Teary eyes…

Wounded pride…

Things that we come across when we let ourselves be devoured by the most famous four-letter word in the whole universe… “LOVE”

Love is undying…

Timeless…

It happens just once…

Once, for a million of reasons, there is no definite reason of this…

It just happens, and sometimes ends up grievous…

Tragic…

Once there was a woman…

Incessantly waiting in the shore watching the beautiful sunset.. Waiting for her love to come along. Tinted colors of different hues painted the magnificent skies. She sighed. It has been an hour of waiting…

Just then she heard some footsteps behind her.. Then those flinty hands embraced her as if there is no tomorrow.

“Love…”, a deep voice whispered through her ears…

“Sorry, I had you waiting…” Then he planted soft, gentle kisses in the palm of her hand. She smiled. And kissed his lips. “I thought you’ll not come…I have been so worried…” They watched the beautiful sunset together…Exchanged sweet kisses, as the graceful waves danced in the rhythm of their love.

The woman is a painter. She has the most beautiful brush strokes painted in a canvas. She fancies nature. The man is engaged in traveling, for his work demands this undertaking.

One undisturbed evening, as the woman watches the shimmering stars ab0ve in the seash0re, again waiting for her love to come, she felt a little shaky. It has been two hours of waiting. And the feeling of weakness keeps on eating her. The gentle breeze touches her warm cheeks. Then she heard a sound of sweet music. She wondered where that music came from, it sounded familiar. She glanced behind. There, she saw her man with some musicians, playing their favorite song, THANK GOD I FOUND YOU… The weariness that she felt in waiting, vanished. Tears began to roll down her exquisite eyes. He came closer to her, asked her to dance. His jet black hair looks so magnificent in the bright light of the solstice moon. They danced and danced. He wiped the tears in her eyes.

Then suddenly, he kneeled down and uttered, “Yhashmeen, love, it has been four years of waiting. And in that four years of us, you were the one who waited and waited for me, every time I come home. Love has been good to us. Now, let me be the one to wait for your retort…”Will you, Yhashmeen Ong, marry me and spend the rest of your life with me…??” The woman gave the sweetest smile he has ever seen. She kneeled down, and reckoned, “..You will know my answer when we’ll meet at the church’s altar..”  The man grabbed her in his arms, cried in her shoulders, uttered lovingly, “I will wait for that answer. I love you.”

Days, weeks, months passed. The hands of time came close to the day of their nuptial. Everybody is happy. That long-term relationship has reached its end, a beautiful  one.

The groom in his black tuxedo is strikingly waiting, anxiously, in the altar. This is the day, the day he will come to know the answer to his question… He waited patiently…thirty minutes, forty, fifty, an hour, two, three. That was it.

All the visitors went home. The bride did not arrive. And so, he died in misery thinking, was that what she wanted? He doesn’t know what to do. He looked blank. The emotions flooded him, he doesn’t know what to feel. The woman he promised to love and cherish throughout his life has left him in the middle of such uncertainties. What happened? Has she gone with somebody? Or she had left him because she doesn’t love him anymore? Or? Had she loved him?

Painful thoughts and memories haunted him every night. He’ll drown himself drinking alcohol just to forget those unpleasant memories.. He’s broken. Broken inside and out. Broken as a man. Broken. Shattered. Wounded into bitter fragments. Six months later…

It was the 18th of December, their supposed-to-be 5th year anniversary. He began to accept the painful thought that she doesn’t really cared. She got tired maybe, maybe she’s happy in the arms of another man. He learned to unshackle himself from that mound of angst.

He went to that seashore. Where they would always meet and watch the smashing sunset together… As he was drawing closer to their spot, he saw a canvas, in a tripod… It depicted a very beautiful sunset.. Then the sea… Then two lovers in each other’s arms, watching the wonderful sunset, the painting looked alive. Those brush strokes were familiar. He gathered the canvas in his arms looked at it with such admiration. Tears were rolling down his eyes. He began to embrace the canvas. Did she paint this for me? He looked around as he searching for someone. He hoped that she’s there waiting for him. The pain began to sear again… He then noticed a note at the back of the painting…He unfolded the paper and it read:

My beloved Jhimwel Ryan Bailey:

I know you hate me for not answering your question. I really must be good enough in choosing my decisions. I hate to see you wait for nothing. But it is better to be this way. It hurts me to see you cry. I did this for both of us, moreover, i did this so you can move on easily… I am sorry. Please do not cry. Remember that i am with you always.

Love,

Yhashmeen

He growled with so much pain after reading the letter. He barely understood what happened. The pain he felt was unbearable. He gathered the canvas and the letter and went to Yhashmeen’s house. He knocked at their wooden door. It was Yhashmeen’s mom who opened the door. He said he wanted to talk with Yhash…

To his surprise, the old woman wept. She said that 7months ago, her daughter was in the verge of death and was diagnosed with leukemia. 3 months later, she passed away. “She told us not to let you know.. For it will bring you so much pain. She told us in the celebration of your 5th year anniversary, the canvas that she painted for you shall be placed in your favorite spot near the seashore. She have loved you so much that she chose not to attend your union because it will hurt you so much more if you learned about her condition. She does not want to be your burden.” He glanced at the canvas. He was stunned by the revelation. She, had chosen to go away from him to lessen the pain. He ran as fast as he could.. Went to the shore with the canvas and roared into deep sorrow.. Their love was so pure. Their love is the most precious of all. And she, has gone with the stars in heaven. Their love has been so perfect. But now., it was just a pleasant memory, a love so true and pure…A love captured on a canvas…

Why the Philippines Lack Good Athletes

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on February 18, 2010 by annepotz

I got hooked on watching the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. It was fun to watch. I love the feeling of watching the athletes do their thing, go for the gold, the spirit and determination for the win; and most of all the pride in their faces in representing their own countries. I also love it when they fall, and they strive to still get up and manage to continue and give their country a great joy and pride. The resiliency of every athlete is one of the highlights of the Olympics.

If we compare our Philippine athletes with the foreign athletes, I can say, in my own opinion, that we Filipinos have the talent, will and spirit to win. We are just as good as them, or more, we are better than them (forgive me for bragging). Filipino athletes excel in every field or event that they choose. Remember Paeng Nepomuceno, Bea Lucero, and other Olympic winners way back? They were legends, Philippine legends in sports that made us so proud.

Sadly, the Philippines rarely produce good Olympic athletes in the recent years. Mainly because, they are not getting enough support from our Philippine government. The Philippines has more important problems to deal with such as poverty, corruption, rapid population growth and more. Athletes were taken for granted, maybe because the funds and supports to them were being corrupted by officials. We have a lot of good athletes; per se, they just lack training and more improvisation because of the lack of budget. The will to win may decline if you are not getting any support.

Taiwan for example, gives its entire support to its athletes who participated in international events, win or lose. They will be receiving awards and compensations after. But the Philippines? I wonder if they even receive half of their reward.

I envy those countries that are over supportive to their athletes. You can hear the cheering and clapping, speeding up the athlete’s courage to cross the great hurdle in each of their events. If only the Philippines has good leaders that can be attentive to the abandoned field of sports in our country, we can also be a great race that the world can look up to and be famous, because we are great athletes, not just a third world country with corrupt political leaders.

KUDOS Melissa Cantiveros: PBB Double Up Big Winner

Sobrang owvheeer ang mga pangyayari kagabi! I was pretty excited to watch the Pinoy Big Brother Double Up, hoping na manalo si Melissa Cantiveros aka Melai. Super naging tensed ang bahay namin habang inaannounce ang mga 5th, 4th and 3rd placers respectively.

Di naman ako super fanatic, but when they announced that Paul Jake was the 2ng Big Placer, voila! I shouted with freat joy, and I also was a bit teary-eyed because of happiness dahil nanalo si Melai!

Congratulations Melai, you deserved to be a big winner, kahit ano pa ang sabihin nila. She gave the BB house the glee and glow kaya sobrang ang daming nahooked, and I was one of them! Kudos to all!!! Will be waiting for the PBB Teen Edition Season 3..can’t wait, I’m sure it will be another great and top rating show!
