Two Firemen

There are two firemen who went to quench a fire near the ocean. After the fire has been extinguished, they both went to the water to clean themselves.One of them had a charcoal on his face while the other had a clean face.  Which fireman do you think will wash

Would you care about a Taxi driver’s love story?

    She was working next door as a baby sitter. I see her every time I come home from school. I asked her name, she said she kept it inside a treasure box. So I told her, maybe she should bring it with her the next time I see her.

I don’t wanna wait, Today.

  “I regret the day I turned my back on my parents and took off with my friends because of my vices.” I have been everywhere along the streets of Manila for more or less 30 years now, my parents are gone. Fifteen years ago when I first ate the food

When the boy came home.

     There was a boy who loved to travel. He went everywhere and lived differently every stop. There was an unknown excitement coming from within whenever he’s about see a new place and a pinch of loneliness each time he left. He wondered why couldn’t he feel fully happy? But

A wonderful bae! -your new typist.

2012 – Year of Opportunity

The end is near, so this is my last post…either end of the world or end of the year.  But regardless of whichever comes first, it’s a good time for reflection on the past year.  My past year can be characterized by one word – opportunity. First and foremost, I

@EMMULATE: Instant Gratification

Like everyone else and their hip-iphone-toting mother, I got bit by the Instagram bug. And hard. I love the incredible ease of micro-blogging: it doesn’t require the photo editing process blogging requires (my nemesis in life) and is like Tumblr, but for super dummies with extreme ADD. Thank goodness for
