167/365: Warning: This Is A Rant Post On A Monday The 16th!

16th of June

Rant 1 Prelude
Just when I set my mind that this first day of the week will not just be fine but great.  So I tried inhaling all the positive vibes to start my day right and promised to stretch it through the whole week, then suddenly baaam! it’s ruined!
“I'm no political I'm no showbiz. I say facts straightforward because I believe I don't need to please people in stating the facts”
This is me – always do and always will be.  Sadly most people (especially at work)  will not appreciate your straightforwardness, honesty and frankness.  They choose to hear sugar coated things rather than the truth.  Their stupid egos can’t handle the truth!

keep calm

Rant 2
Do you know a person who has gotten a minor title (maybe) for the first time in her life suddenly went floating from her own-created hurricane wind and wants everybody to bow down to her “power”? The phrase “I’m the Queen of the world!” is written all over her face?
Well it would be lovely to tell her …

“Jeez!
Get out and expose yourself to the real hurricane so you’ll see for yourself that you’re nothing but a piece of object among the tons that can be tossed around and smashed into oblivion. If you survive then that’s the time you can be proud! But for now keep calm and be humble!

Because if you don't, someone who's experienced enough to handle the worst hurricane will come along and blow the strongest wind right into your face and you'll be tossed and smashed the way you never experienced before.”

Rant 3:
Government offices always have the service that s*cks BIG TIME especially to ordinary citizen like me who happens to be one among the people paying their salaries through my taxes.  But I’ve learned to adapt and be patient to their inefficiency  no matter how frustrating it is.  It was like “for the sake of world peace I will bear with you.”   And then I will just maximized the stretch of my not-so-elastic-patience”.

But when it comes to private service provider it is so d*mn frustrating when you get poor service. You wanted to shout…

“Hey people we are paying you extra!
You see I came from a sh*tty day at work and you’re making me wait here? This is my third visit from my pre-approved schedule for five visits.  Why do I need to wait for an approval confirmation on each visit while in fact it was approved from day one?
I hate waiting especially if the cause is senseless.  Who loves waiting anyway?  And mind you I have another itinerary after this so it’s not funny that you are making me wait for a senseless reason!”

Rant 3!

Traffic!
What else can I say? I can’t do anything about this and it’s stupid to rant – I know right?
The only thing I could do is to wish that this vehicle will miraculously grow a unicorn wing and fly me out of this one-hell-of-non-moving line of horn-blowing metals with wheels so I can reach my destination in time.

Enough said. Enough rant.

By the way, congratulations to all people who’s having a good day today.  You are so so blessed!

Sunday Poem and Photograph: She Who Loves The Beach

It’s the second week of the new year and the official summer time in tropical Philippines is still two months short and yet all I’m thinking about is the beach. While people were stressing themselves with the holiday rush and parties, I was busy hopping from one beach to another.  I know this sounded weird but as I’ve said on my new year's post , I’m having flighty feet lately and my body has been shouting to spend time with nature specifically to the beach.  But, family and work obligations got in the way during the summer so when I got the chance to take a vacation I grabbed all the opportunities!  The hell I care about the cold December breeze I went beach and island hopping! I even ignore a gorgeous year-end party at the Palace Pool Club and declined other holiday-related invitations. Out of itchiness and longing, I even spent time (and money) to an urban man-made beach in the city.  However, it just worsen the longing rather than it served as a temporary remedy.  The longi

Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children

“this place will break your heart, will make you cry, will make you want to reach out, and will make you feel grateful & thankful, all at the same time…”   They are located at: 1030 Tayuman Street, Tondo, Manila. Their telephone number is (+632) 255-0832 and the contact person is Sister Anselm. I wrote that caption in this same season last year, my first time to visit a place called “Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children”.  I was with a  group of friends along with our respective families.  I could never be thankful enough to our friend Rupert and his family for leading us to this place.  It was not my first time to do a charity visit to an orphanage and I sort of wonder why we were “brief” that this is for special children.  I only realized what that briefing is about when I see for myself how “special” these children are.  I apologize if this may not sound good to some, but the sight of the sick children is heartbreaking.  I tried to look tough and not to
