Missing Muse

It’s all painted in white, everything is clear.
Colorful painted walls suddenly disappeared,
along with the calmness of her mind and heart
comes with the emptiness of her vision and art.

Plants bloom after being watered down by rain,
too long under the sun, now she misses the pain.
Grew a garden in this once unkempt landscape,
built up a fence around it, now she wants to escape.

She had the peace of mind that she once craved
but pouring herself in a canvas, she was saved.
It was lost the moment she found her tranquility,
searching for can of paints, instead found anxiety.

It’s Hard To Lose Weight If You Are A Filipino

Losing weight is one of the most set New Year’s Resolution. After all those celebration and holidays, and eating all those food, a lot of people are still on their holiday weight. But for Filipinos losing weight is a lot more difficult not because we’re lazy or unmotivated but for these different factors.

Rice

is the staple food of Filipinos, it’s one of the best source of carbohydrates that makes you gain weight and Filipinos can’t live without rice. For every viand there should be a rice, Filipino meal is not complete without it. That’s why if you’re a restaurant owner who offers unlimited rice, best believed Filipinos will love it.

Eating as bonding

Filipinos love to eat and it’s one of the best way to bond with Filipinos. By having a “food trip” or when you want to hang out and drink with a Filipino best pair it with a “pulutan” (snacks). Filipinos are not picky when it comes to food, we will try anything especially when it’s free lol. From personal experience I think I didn’t meet with my friends to just hang out, we always need to have any type of food with us. Even when you visit a family member you’re ask to eat and sometimes you can’t say no lol.

Celebrations are everywhere

We celebrate everything, and of course we celebrate it with food. We celebrate good grades, one week of a new born baby, every payday, or just by being in a good mood you name it.

Diet is a joke

as much as I want to hype how fun being a Filipino is, there are some toxic Filipino traits that we as a Filipino also hate. When you say that you’re on a diet here in the Philippines, they will look at you skeptically and doesn’t believe you can go through it. It’s one of a toxic trait for some Filipinos, they kind of discourage you for losing weight but when you don’t they’ll say a statement straight to your face that you gain weight (parang tumaba ka).


Overall losing weight is all about the mindset, it’s not really about the nationality. If you want to do something set your mind on it, and do the best you can to achieve it. I’m writing this because this is my New Year’s Resolution right now, to lose weight and be fit again. I have been binge eating every now and then, and this year I will really do my best to achieve this goal.

What is your New Year’s Resolution?

A Whiplash Year

Sorry, I’ve been MIA and I should really probably stop saying sorry for being away but I have been addicted to a video game again lol. Does anyone play House Flipper here? 😄

Advertisements

Anyways, I just reread my annual end of the year post last year END OF THE DECADE and I realized that I had a whiplash from 2020. I had a great 2019, it was really great like I said the year 2019 was very kind to me and I feel like it was that great year because I needed that year to be able to survive this year. 2019 was like “okay, I’m going to be nice to you because 2020 is gonna be hell” it was hell lol. It got me thinking of this thing that most of us have been feeling, like you can’t really be too happy because the next thing you’ll be feeling is too much downfall. It’s that weird tire that rolls, you can’t be too long at the top and you’ll feel like you’ve spent a lifetime being at the bottom.

It’s funny how I said in my 2019 year end post that I will be living in the moment in 2020– I did and it kind of punch me back in my face. I had this mindset in 2020 of being impulsive and to just go with the flow and do the things that felt good doing at the time. And I had regrets this year that I wish I could go back and undo it, I was so caught up with my mindset that I didn’t think things through, I really let go of my old self where I overthink things but I don’t want to go back to that version of me. Maybe it’s my timing of letting go and just being in the moment or maybe I should just blame 2020. Either way I can’t seem to find the balance of being in the moment and thinking things through. So, I’m back to that feeling of confuse and lost, this year was really a whiplash. You think you’re doing great but life will be in your face telling you “No! You’re not!” But I have to fight through that thinking and wait it out. And, now I want to have this hopeful feeling for 2021 because life really feels like a rolling tire right now and I’ve spent my time at the bottom of the tire this year so maybe 2021 will roll my way and I’ll regain myself a bit? I’m hoping and I don’t want to jinx it.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope for a better year for everybody in 2021. 🤗

What are your hopes for this new year? 😊

Dear Santa,

If I was five I would have asked you for a toy
but I grew up fast and never believed in you.
If I ever did I would have asked you for joy
a thing that was stolen and I never knew.

When I was ten I had a Christmas wish,
no one ever knew, I thought you did.
Other kids would never had it on their list
but I didn’t grew up as a normal kid.

That was fourteen years ago
and I still have that same wish,
after all the time that had flown
there’s still something that I miss.


Forgive this melodramatic poem, it’s Christmas and we should all be happy at least for today. It has been a crazy year for all of us but let today be full of happiness and forget all of your problems just for a little while. I would like to send my warmest hugs to those who lost someone or something due to the pandemic. We’ve all been through a lot this year, we all deserve to take a break and enjoy this holiday. Cheers to everyone and Merry Christmas!

Justice #StopTheKillings

Advertisements

How can someone easily take a life?
Without hesitation they just take it.
It was a gun fight and they brought a knife,
not even a chance to announce defeat.

Arms raised and unarmed
yet, they point the gun,
they cause no any harm.
Cold on the floor, unable to run.

His eyes show no signs of guilt.
Adrenaline rushing through his veins,
looking at those he freshly killed,
what he did to them is inhumane.

What is justice if the law is on his side?
Where do you go when the law is the enemy?
There’s the proof but they choose to be blind.
Justice is gone and the law is on a killing spree.

I wrote this after I watched a police officer in the Philippines shot a mother and her son who were unarmed. There’s still no concrete explanation of why it led to this terrible incident. It’s so infuriating to think how authorities abuse their power that leads to these kinds of crimes. There is an increase of police brutality around the world, there are so many unrecorded incidents and many were unpunished because they were protected by the law makers and other state officials because they are part of the law. The world is so fucked up right now.
