Went to bed late. Later than usual. Like 1am late. Everything is still. Crickets chirping. Dogs barking some blocks away. Few vehicles pass somewhere in the north. Tired.

Home. Earlier than yesterday. Exhausted if I may say. Bed. Finally. After a long and tiring day. Rain. Listening as they fell. Thunder. Rolling in sky’s freeway. The sound of distant heavy downpour contrast the rhythmic fall.
My heart. It feels heavy, I feel like crying but then again I don’t like the look my eyes get after crying.

It’s a froggy night! The rain just stopped and the frogs are singing their happy song. Well, they are not exactly frogs but toads. Philippine narrowmouth toad to be exact. I forgot the exact date when I first heard them but I was heading home that night. I thought it was a cow (lol) then I listened closely and thought it must be a brand new frog specie. What a weird sounding frog and I was worried that they might eat the camprags and disturb the ecosystem. Lol!
Growing up, the only frog sound I hear was from American frog or “camprag” as we call it. But they seemed extinct. I haven’t heard them in years!

I’m feeling creative tonight. I wanted to write a poem. But I’m also tired. So I’ll just write a draft and polish it when I have time.
Had dinner with friends in Dimyum. Went home around 9pm AAAND I saw the same guy from last week! Last Wednesday we were seated next to each other inside the van. This time he’s seated adjacent to me inside the jeepney going to Panacan. I wonder why he’s here. If he’s a part of Catholic ministry why would he travel from Davao to Panabo? I’d ask him what brought him to Davao/Panabo next time we meet.

Started reading Kevin Kwan’s Rich People Problems. I intend to finish it by Friday.
Yaaaas! Done reading the book. After deligently spending around 30 mins (to an hour) before hitting the sack and reading it on idle time (that includes commuting, eating, waiting for someone) I finished it on my expected date. It was indeed a fun and heartwarming read. I find the part where the sisters try to adjust their mom’s veneer and the bible study, the funniest. It also made my eyes cloud up a bit particularly where Su Yi saw James. I just love everything!

Cold night. Moon shines bright. The breeze reminds me of Christmas

Bed! I missed you so much! Got stomachache from wee hours of the morning till tonight but it’s a bit tolerable. I also learned that Chester Benington of Linkin Park (one of my favorite bands) died. So sad.

It’s 12:13am. Heavy rain finally stopped. If it had poured for another hour, our floors would have been flooded.
September 21 | Thursday
It’s drizzling tonight. And as usual, I’m tired. I need a massage. Whole body massage to loosen my knotted muscles.

We were at the shipdeck. I took a picture of him using my phone. I’m at peace watching him, knowing he’s near me. Salty wind was blowing and my hair got unruly. Midafternoon sun, clouds, and the sea.

While waiting for a jeepney this evening, I saw a white kitty cat. I was planning of “catnapping” it, had s/he came a little closer. LOL! S/He’s a clearly underweight as her/his bones were protruding. S/he could have been been an addition to my family. If I ever get to see her/him again, I’d snag her/him up (mischievous grin) and I’d pet her/him like i do with our cats and dogs. It’s just weird I didn’t get to know whether that cat was a she or a he. I threw a breadcake at her/him so s/he could eat.

My heart. My mind. Stop breaking. Stop thinking. You know you’ll be hurt but you still hope for him. Stop. Just stop.
Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff got married today in New Zealand. Rustic yet elegant. The wedding venue’s backdrop was, I think an old church ruins by the woods. One-with-nature feels! Her lace dress was simple. No big sparkly blings on intricate details. It’s uncomplicated and charming. Overall, I love the vibes. So refreshing!
I don’t know how to start my blog entry about my recent travel to Zamboanga and Tawi-tawi

Too much noise from our neighbors who got married today. Karaoke yuck! This is could be the very first instance that I’d wish the electricity would go off.

My birthday wish.
I wish for a miracle and if it’s not too much I also wish for strength. It’s not for me but for anyone who needed it.
Miracle. I know there’s no chance for survival at this time but I’m still hoping that those individuals trapped in NCCC mall are still alive. Strength. Physical, emotional, and spiritual strength for the families affected by the recent tragedy… of typhoon Vinta and the NCCC mall fire.

Less noise from firecrackers this Christmas but Hachi still got PETrified hearing those sound. I hope everyone will adhere to our government’s firecracker ban.
December 31 | Sunday
This is the most pet-friendly new year’s celebration. Finally, no firecracker noise! 🙂
