My First Love (Valentine’s Day Special Part 2)

A few days away from Valentine’s Day, I would like to share to you the second part of the story of my first love. With that being said, feel free to reminisce that moment when a certain individual has made you felt emotions you never knew you had. If you haven’t read Part 1, be sure to check it out as well.

(Names were changed for practical reasons)

The incoming school year has gotten me excited for the past few days. First of all, after eight years of education I am now facing another four. To be honest, the only thing in my mind right now is what my mother told me while we’re having our monthly manicure session. Okay, let that entire image sink in for a moment… Yes, since my mother isn’t blessed with a daughter and since it’s just the two of us, I by default have to be with her and enjoy the “family activities” she wants to do. Plus, it makes me feel pretty afterwards so it’s a win-win. [I wonder why people keep assuming I’m gay. I just can’t see it.]

I was reading a magazine beside my mother inside the salon when she leaned while still maintaining to have her nails done by her friend Auntie Josie and got my attention, Read More…


My First Love (Valentine’s Day Special)


In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I would like to share to you a [true] story about two people falling in love.  Do you remember your first love? While you’re trying to recall, let me tell you one:

(Names were changed for practical reasons)

Much like everybody, I met her one Sunday afternoon during mass. [Why? That doesn’t happen often? Well, just…okay?] Her family asked my mother if they can share the pew with us. After the family settled themselves in their seats, this girl beside me started staring at me. I looked at her for a moment then I casually turned away. Suddenly, I felt something pinching my right arm. I turned and saw her left hand hovering near my arm as if trying to do it again. I asked the question every kid in this country should have asked at least 50, 60 times max, “Who are you?”

Completely ignoring me, she said, Read More…

Indigo Prophecy: Blood and Snow

A city or a place filled with snow can bring out a lot of emotions in a person. It can be the overwhelming sense of heavy yet soft ice falling on the street or just the feeling of cold and eventually the longing for warmth that follows.

Indigo Prophecy can be defined as such.

Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit depending on what country you’re in is a game released on the PlayStation2, XBOX and PC. Developed by Quantic Dream and published by Atari. This review covers the PS2 version.

After a monologue by an unknown man, the game takes you to a

From XBOX 360 to XBOX 180

Do you remember when your parents punished you when you were a kid that they have to take away your toys or something? But then seeing you go crazy like, throwing a tantrum all over the house, missing the toilet intentionally when you go number two (I have a friend who did it when he was a kid) which made them take back what they did or said? Now take a look back on Microsoft’s presentation last E3 and the news these past weeks concerning their backpedalling about their new console’s policy. Isn’t it kind of the same?

The video game community had a sigh of relief when Microsoft took back what they said about their DRM (Digital Rights Management) policy. Here’s a part of the statement from Microsoft president of interactive entertainment Don Mattrick: Read More…

I Need To Find Answers To My Ridiculous Questions

SUNDAY 0:26—

 Do you believe in ghosts? You can always categorize people when it comes to these kinds of things, into three. Those who are skeptic, the ones that who do but denies it and the people who do believe. As for me, I fall in the middle of the first and second. It wasn’t a time a close relative passed away and a butterfly flew inside my house and made me breakfast, it wasn’t anything special—really.

You might be asking where all of this is coming from. It was because a couple of nights ago… My father just arrived home after two straight shifts from work. He called me and my sister after sitting down on his favorite spot on the couch in the living room. Unbuttoning the first two buttons on his uniform he looked at us, “Do you have plans tomorrow night? A lot of people filed their days offs and I realized I was the only one on duty tomorrow .”

I turned to my sister and saw she had the same look I have. I knew we’re both thinking the same thing: Read More…
