adventure # 164: Love exists



"All you need is Love. Love is all you need"
-The Beatles


Does Love really exist?

Does love really, really exist?



When at this very second an innocent child is dying in Africa because of AIDS.

When at this very moment a school girl is being raped by a group of bored rich kids who are not afraid of being caught because they belong to a family of politicians.

When at this very moment a hungry street child is standing outside the window of a store that says "It serves billions."

When at this very moment, a child is secretly crying inside her bedroom closet because she overheard her parents arguing again for the hundredth time.

When at this very moment a mother is skipping meals in London just to save up so that she can send her family their monthly allowance in the Philippines.

When at this very moment a gay college student is being beaten up and ridiculed for just being himself.

When at this very moment the corrupt governor is buying a brand new car while his driver's son is sick of dengue.

When at this very moment I am crying.



Tell that love doesn't exist to a tired mother who just got home from work and saw a card made by her now sleeping son that says "You're the best Mom in the world"

Tell that love doesn't exist to a wet pedestrian who just got the surprise of his life when a kind stranger offered him his umbrella.

Tell that love doesn't exist to an elementary teacher who was visited by one of his students who just graduated from college to personally thank her for being the best teacher she has ever had.

Tell that love doesn't exist to a couple who after 10 years of waiting for a child finally got the result of the ultrasound stating that it's "Positive."

Tell that love doesn't exist to a gay man who wasn't abandoned by his friends and family after they learned that he is HIV positive.

Tell that love doesn't exist to an old lady who is now sitting comfortably in the LRT after a college boy who she doesn't know offered her his seat.

Tell that love doesn't exist to an old couple who after 70 years of being together still visits the place where they first met and hold hands the entire evening.

Tell that love doesn't exist to me who is still experiencing unconditional love from my family and friends.



Life is full of shit.

We all have our own reasons to hate it.

But to deny that love exist is synonymous to denying that we exist.

We need not to look for the perfect couple nor the best gift to experience how tangible love really is.

Sometimes all we need is just to look closely to realize that the glass is full.

Love does not exist.

love it.. life is a bitch, yes. but to say that love does not exist, its just like saying pain is eternal... you see love more clearly right after you felt pain... because right there, the thin line being drawn between them makes it so distinct.

Mga parausang lumang sinehan

NAG DESISYON na ang Korte Suprema na labag sa Konstitusyon ang ordinansa na nagbabawal ng short time sa mga motel sa siyudad ng Maynila.

Wala na ring balak pa umanong maghain ng apela si mayor Alfredo Lim sa naturang desisyon.

Nagbabala naman si Lim na handa niyang ipasara ang anumang motel sa lungsod ng Maynila sakaling may makita sila na pinapayagan na magpapasok ng mga estudyante para magshort time.
Pero, teka, ito talaga ang pakay ko, ang mga lumang sinehan sa Metro Manila.

Taong 2005, balak ko na itong iparating sa dati kong boss na Kongresista, ang patuloy na pamamayagpag ng mga lumang sinehan sa Maynila. Subalit, may tila tinik sa aking lalamunan na nakabara. Tila, wala akong boses sa tuwing ako ay maghahanda sa aking mga sasabihin. Tila, nakagapos ang aking mga kamay para isulat ang mga hakbang na dapat kong irekomenda para masulosyunan na ito.

Alam ko, ikaw ay pamilyar ukol sa mga lumang sinehan sa buong Kamaynilaan.

Sa unang pasok ko sa ganitong sinehan, ako ay tuwang tuwa. Napan…

PILIPINAS, TUNAY NGA BANG MALAYA NA?

NGAYON ANG IKA 111st NA ANIBERSARYO NG ARAW NG KALAYAAN NG PILIPINAS. Ngunit, sa paglipas ng isang daan at labing isang taon, tunay nga ba tayong malaya na?

May mga pagkakataong gusto kong isipin na hindi na tayo nakagapos sa mga bansang banyaga dahil nagkaroon na tayo ng kalayaan sa pamamalakad ng gobyerno. Ngunit, ano ang kalagayan ng mga Pilipino ngayon? Mayroon na nga ba siyang dangal na matatawag? Taas noo na nga ba ang bawat Pilipino kahit kanino?

Sa mga nakalipas na araw, samu’t saring problema ang dinaranas ng ating bansa. Mga problemang lalong nagpapalugmok ng bawat mamamayan. Mga problemang animo’y walang katapusan. Paano babangon ang isang Juan dela Cruz kung mismong mga namumuno sa ating bayan ang nagbabangayan? Paano tayo makakalaya kong mismong mga halal ng bayan ang siyang nanguna upang itali ang bawat mahihirap na pinoy sa kanilang pamamahala?Paano na ang walang tigil na pagbulusok ng presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin? Ang walang humpay na pagtaas ng gasolina. Paano pa m…
