What comes to your mind when you hear the word whale shark? Hmmm.. Probably ‘dangerous’, ‘scary’ or ‘life threatening creature’. That’s what I thought.
When I was a kid, I love reading the encyclopedia (sad to say, no internet for me that time). Well it’s not that I was really reading, I was just looking at the pictures and my favorite was the letter S encyclopedia which I used to remove from the shelf all the time. I remember I would carry it everywhere and browse the different kinds of sharks—the hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks, blue sharks, and great white sharks. I love looking at the pictures and just by looking, I knew that these creatures are extremely dangerous. I never thought, not even slight imagination, that I’d get to have a close encounter with one of them!
Generally, sharks have bad reputation because they attack humans. But it was summer last year when a magical experience changed my view about sharks. Not all of them are Continue reading
One of the things I love when I go on a trip is that I get to feel nature. So when my family and I went to Palawan last December 2011, another adventure thrilled me as I explore the underwater which was referred to as “the mini Tubbataha reef“. As we went from one island to another, one of the boatmen said that Pambato Reef was a newly found tourist spot. It was discovered by a fisherman whose hook got entangled in the reefs.
When the fisherman dived into the water to remove it, he was amazed with what he saw about 20-30 feet below water level. Continue reading
I was alone
But never was I lonely
Things done on my own
Everyone knows my story. . .
In my haven
Happiness conquers my mind
In nature’s beauty
Paradise is all I see. . .
In magic I never believed
Empty space in my heart there is
Eros is the other half they insist
The one who can make Psyche’s life complete. . .
Out of nowhere came a stranger Continue reading
When loneliness fills your heart
And sadness conquers your soul
When all you wanna do is cry
Pain and regret because of sad goodbye
When all you can think about is the past
And all the good times you thought would last
Gallons of tears fall
Memories you cant have once more
When your heart grows numb
and your mind gets weak
you just don’t wanna wake up
staying in your haven is more than enough
Sleep… Continue reading
It was five in the morning. My bag full of food was ready, my extra shirt, pen and paper, and of course a load of excitement! And a few minutes later, my service arrived to pick me up for school. The most awaited day as a grade school kid finally came. The day when learning was not limited to books and classroom, when I got the chance to visit memorable places and hang out with my best buddies in school, and when I was allowed to eat junk food and drink soda. Yes, it was the day of our field trip. With a bunch of other hyperactive kids, I entered the bus and prayed that we arrive safely to our destination —- Nayong Pilipino.
The memories of my childhood came back to me as if they happened just yesterday. When I visited Bohol with my family last September 2010 and saw the famous Chocolate Hills for the first time, the first thing that occurred to me was our field trip at Nayong Pilipino and Continue reading
i feel happy
i feel sad
a bit confused
but maybe it’s not that bad
still remember the times we were together
laughters and tears
worries and fears
even doubt and confusion sometimes appear
but my love for you always interferes Continue reading
