What vulnerable? On Friendster?

Im lazy so here's a copy-paste straight from my friendster:

Im a half Ifugao, half Chavacano, farmer wanna be.I grew up in a family surrounded by family and relatives speaking Tagalog, the Mayoyao-Ifugao dialect, and english, forcing me to learn at a young age that to trully speak a language, you have to be in that language's attitude.

It's a pity that I haven't mastered my Dad's provincial language, Chavacano. The closest thing that I came to understand Chavacano was when I had Spanish I and II in UST.


Im the the type who:

asked the "Where did God come from?" question before entering nursery school

remembers what it was like to be happy when his baby brother was born when he was five

learned the meaning of the word "talkative" when my Kindergarten adviser told my Mom about
me being talkative.

had asked friends in grade five about his flaws so he can improve them

is stanger to the feeling of being hungry until his growth spurt during high school

used to be fat from grade four to first year highschool before started getting taller in 2nd year, having the perfect body in 3rd year, and being lanky in 4th yr

dreamed of becoming a doctor and an actor

had been striving to get the body he used to have in 3rd year H.S.

vividly remembers his first nightmare in Isabela

not older than five, upon someone's suggestion, wondered how a hot stone almost has the same feeling as ice when you have your bare feet on it

used to be suffering from colonial mentality

have had the joys of reading Adarna books

used to read the books of Og Mandino

used to be a college student and had the arrogance to believe that we were the greatest people on planet Earth

(thought about putting something here about my two clans but decided to keep it to myself)

likes the "it goes without saying" line

believes that material possesions are trully owned by the one who worked for it

used to have lots of teenage angst

is no stranger to hatred for hatred's sake

realized that some of the best advise I can take are also the best advise that I can give when I'm not currently in that situation

used to have this as a Friendster About Me statement and decided to keep it---"I need to save in order to gain. Made a feasible financial goal that will be met before the this year ends. God, everyone, and me, suppport me please...

1. I gravitate towards people that I know I would like and would like me in the long run.
2. I know my limitations and, at 22, I'm still discovering my potentials.
3. I want to trust in the highest power that I'll find the piece that would make my puzzle complete."

I'm the type who wonders if people like me are endangered as I always receive the skeptic eye and more of the statement of "Really?" when I share things about nothing happening when I slept at a friend's house or when I went to Quezon to have a great time or that time when... *BLEEP* was asleep and *BLEEP* and me were tipsy and still awake.

It goes without saying that assuming too much about the ambigous line prior this is quite misleading.

I continue to do simple things that avarage people would normally avoid doing just because they're afraid of what people they are usually surrounded by may think or say. (Like the 2 lines before this.)

Im the type who wonders about going to the mountains and living like a hermit or becoming a motropolitan bohemian only if I weren't as responsible as I have let myself become.

Im the type who's not afraid to share that he's at a friend's house eating Cadbury and drinking Baileys while typing this down and thinking about blogging about it on his blog and adding that tomorrow he'll be in another friend's house sharing his life experiences and introspections.

It also goes without saying that this About Me portion, like blogs, is never enough to share everything about me. That's why they have that "Describe Who You Want to Meet" below so that people you would like to meet can meet you and know about you.

And that's the end of the friendster copy-paste.

I hope that when it rains again, it only happens 3am-5am. :)

Cheers! (I remember the times when I always included cheers at the end of my every post... Guess it was 2005 then... ^_^ Cheers indeed!)

Anilah nga kadwo jhu hi Apo Dyos ad uhgoni uncle Paet ju uncle Colen.

Uchi' penhod nga maat hini khun ulon hunu i-Majawjaw nga tolo hini mun-iibphu nga matoy jo un marpas hunoh khun metob.

Choh-ju nga cuncle mi khumo juh tikhun ju chuhmi heto lutah. Ichi ju khumo chimi buy-un.

Ika-lalag mi chu'ju tun uncle mi.

What are priceless and beautiful in life: Global City, Taguig

Jogging for an hour, alone, in Global City between 2 to 4 AM. Being aware of the sound of crickets and of my tiredness and the feeling of sweat trailing down while most people in my time zone are asleep… Bliss.

Being with college friends, Rica and Camela, and blowing bubbles at the Bonifacio High Street. I would like to name it the cool pet park among other things though. rofl

Experiencing the inner-child of people just by blowing bubbles and see them chase after those. Hahahhahahah! Kids, career women with their Starbucks, an elderly Korean lady with her sons/nephews… almost no one can resist the charm of bubbles! You can just see it in their eyes…

One lovely lady was chasing one and got became self-conscious when she heard me laugh. I didn’t mean to embarrass her. And to make her feel that it’s okay to chase bubbles and be young at heart I said "It’s alright" loud enough for her to hear.

Laughing at particular silly tweeners/teeners. Hahahahah! Evil me. As if Rica and I weren’t tweeners once… Thank God I’m over those stages… Wow… I guess… Fun turmoil. :p

What are priceless and beautiful in life: Talisay

Knowing some of the people in Talisay, Real, Quezon and already liking them enough that I actually felt sad just at the thought of going home.

Almost drowning in Balagbag falls after trying to help a drowning friend and having the two of us being helped by Jason. Hahahah!

Jumping into the waterfall while thinking in midair: "Why am I not touching the water yet… what am I doing here… what did I put my self into this time…?" all in less than 1 sec and remembering it.

Eating seafood one long banana leaf! Without spoons and forks!

Sitting under a waterfall and just hearing the sound of rushing water… and finding tiny snails and crabs in corners…

Having bonfires, singing, telling stories and just drinking lambanog till I fall asleep on the sand, under the full moon and a blanket of stars with the sound of the waves in the background…

Having a darker shade of tan WITHOUT the sunburn!

Knowing people like Jason, Jolo, Jobert, Jeffrey, Jean, and MJ, whose real name is Juanito, Andy and our good hosts Tita Ludy with her husband and their chilren: Noise, Nice and Holiday, and being thankful for making Talisay a life-long experience.

Being lucky enough to have High School friends like Arlene, Sheena, and Jelda, bring me there.

I would like to go there again in May when they celebrate Mayuhan. The people of Talisay will be the organizers this year!
