Being away from the busy city life and awaking in this kind of sight makes me want to stay here and never  leave. This paradise is indeed a wonder that no matter how many times I have seen it in television, being here is different. Breathtaking.

Its fine white sands, crystal clear blue sea, the sight of the sky… if only I don’t have to leave in here tomorrow…

The question is: can I really leave here? Being broke and everything. I wish. But miracles do happen, right.

It will only take less than an hour of air travel to get in here and a few minutes of boat ride.

I went here to unwind, enjoy life, think things through, ponder on what I really want with my life and to relieve myself of the stressful things of work and etc. If only I could do what I really want: Write.

This paradise is worth to write and there are several articles about it already. But I can’t mention its name. Maybe soon… When I’m no longer attached to my stressful day job.

I want to comeback here but I don’t know when. I want to stay here a little longer… but I can’t…


I will terribly miss this place. I hope I can come back here…


The After Life of Flood


It took quite a while for me to post again.

Last August 7, 2012, my mother woke me up saying our area was already flooded. I didn’t believe at once, knowing it’s rare for flood to reach our place. I peered at the window and yes, it was flooding and I can’t go to work. That sucks but I secretly welcome the thought (grin).

I informed my supervisor and AOM at once about my situation and there’s nothing to do about it but let nature unleash its wrath.

The good thing about being house-arrested was, I was able to finish the encoding of the edits of my novel.

Well… it’s people’s fault why flood happens. If only we’re disciplined enough to put our garbage in their proper places, the drainage system will not be blocked.

If nature can only speak, I think she will say, “Do not do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you.”

I hope it will never happen again. It’s scary.

I pity those people who lost their home.
