Veneration of the Dead (Is really, really important in Eastern Cultures)

I didn’t visit any cemetery until 2014, the year papa died. So I am not well aware of what to do when visiting a grave. But for the few times we visited papa’s, we didn’t even pay proper respect. No flowers, candles, and food were offered. We just stood there silently and looked at the name etched on the marble lapida along with the wrong birthdate of papa.. And then, we stopped by a restaurant to eat before going home.

I want to justify myself and my mom that it’s okay to not give proper respect:

-He’s dead, so he won’t even know it.

-Our presence is enough to show that we respect him.

Living in a country that is religiously following these customs, we might get a few eyes looking at us, may be mocking us in their minds because of not giving respect to the deceased. But, whatever, I still love papa and I might or might still not bring flowers, candles, and food the next time I visit him.

Hi, I like you.

Hi, I like you.

Hi, I like you. But I’m awkward and I have a zit on my face, so I’ll pretend to be busy and not notice you. But I’m secretly looking at you (not in a creepy way). And I might act awkward around you, but don’t be scared. It’s just because I like you.

‘Pogi’ means ‘Handsome’

Meron kang isang litrato sa iPad ko.

Hindi naman ikaw ang kinukunan ko kundi ang lecture mo.

Pero dahil hindi sinasadyang maisama ka,

Hindi ko na buburahin at titigan ko pa.

Dedicated to my friend, “LOL” who is really crushing on her prof.

Dedicated also to the ladies who developed a crush on their ‘pogi’ professors. lol.

To my ‘pogi’ Eng’g professor before, Hi Sir, tinititigan ka na lang namin pag di na namin maintindihan yung lesson. :))

How this introvert introduced herself

She’s fond of looking at the stars and starts bringing life to them through her writings.
It’s when in silence that she starts shouting. A lady with a timid personality but also
a jolly alter ego within. It’s not that music is her escape because it’s a part of her
world. And if she can, she’ll put music in little jars and adorn her house
with it. You’ll see her contributing her art to this world and she’s hoping you’ll be amazed by it.This introduction is short but enough to get you a glimpse of her galaxy.
