Naramdaman nyo na ba na wala kayong silbi sa mundong ito? Yung waring pinagtutulungan ka ng kapalaran at pilit nitong inilalayo sa iyo ang mga bagay na matagal mo nang inaasam-asam na kahit anong pilit mong gawin ay wala ka talagang magagawa. Nasubukan mo na bang takpan ang ilong mo ng unan at iuntog nang iuntog ang ulo mo sa dingding hanggang mamula…bumukol…magsugat…dumugo. Nasubukan mo na bang uminom ng maraming gamot at mangarap na sana huwag ka nang magising kinabukasan? Naramdaman mo na ba na walang nagmamahal sayo? Yung tipong parang mag-isa ka lang sa mundong ibabaw, na nagmamashid lang sa mga dumadaan sayo, walang pakialam, walang atubili, walang alam. Nasubukan mo na bang kumuha ng lubid at isabit sa kisame ng bahay mo? At natanong mo na ba sa sarili mo kung para saan ito? Nasubukan mo na bang makinig sa musikang hindi mo alam kung matatawag mo pang musika dahil pinasasabog nito ang utak mo, pinadudugo ang tenga. Kumuha ka na ba ng kutsilyo? Para saan nga rin ba ito?  Nasubukan mo na bang habulin ng tingin ang isang tao na kahit na anong gawin mo ay kahit kailan ay hindi ka matitingnan pabalik? Nasubukan nyo na bang umiyak nang tuyo? O nasubukan nyo nab a na hindi kumain ng kahit ano dahil hindi mo ramdam na ang pagkain na dapat mong kainin ay dapat talaga sa iyo?

Nasubukan nyo na bang tanungin ang mga tanong na ito kahit na alam nyong wala naman talagang sasagot ng mga ito? Nasubukan nyo?

Leche.

Yep. I am indulging these Thai noodles brought by a Thai family friend who brought (ehem!) a basket (as in the basket where you put dirty clothes!) of these instant noodles. I love the vermicelli. Very delicious! Parang sotanghon natin kaso mas masarap! Plus it is ultra spicy: you don’t need to add the extra chili. Haha. Most Thai food are spicy, so, it would just come up that even the spicy food for us may not be too spicy for them.

Enjoy summer!

It has been a long time since I did some blogging, and see, even though there are a lot of things to tell, I still feel that I cannot do decent writing. Maybe because I was too filled with sadness because it is really hard to adjust to a new life, especially that the faces you usually see everyday would not be the faces you’ll see when you go to school on June. Anghirap magtapos ng high school. Though I didn’t cry during the commencement exercises (because it wasn’t solemn enough) I still feel very sad.

Yeah, the graduation was not, after all, that memorable, for it wasn’t as private as we want it to be. See, the other laboratory schools of the university are with us, and it was the first time that the university held a joint commencement exercise of all the laboratory high schools.

I was very annoyed that time because some of the laboratory high school students are really noisy. There are some “insecure yan kaya maingay” guys near my seat who kept on laughing on other school’s valedictory address while all the time they speak unacceptable and eardrum-splitting English. Well, I can’t totally blame them coz some of my colleagues acted that way too (Even I myself acted that way on an instance or two). Pero nakakainis talaga eh. Astig naman yung mga speech ng mga valedictorians especially the speech ng Agricultural Science and Technology School, to think na kadalasan eh minamata-mata lang sila because they work more at fields than we usually do.

Overall, it was fun. Haha. Here are some pics. Haha. By the way, our graduation was held at the university’s graduation site (Which is outdoors, with plants, grasses, on a garden-like field). FYI, since 2003, the USHS graduation was held at the University Auditorium.

This is me with my sister, a co-graduate. She studied early, so she was able to catch up. Madalas akong napagkakamalan na repeater. Haha.

The Valedictory Address. Asus! Pretending to be an honor student, this is a goofy me. But seriously, I wish I was the valedictorian. But how? Bottom ranker po ito.

We had a beer party at Homer’s house last Friday. It was his victory treat, and it was really fun. Almost the whole batch was there, eating and singing all the way. It had been an unforgettable night, for it was the first time that we were allowed to drink beer, and almost everybody has their fair share of alcohol. Even the people whom you thought would not resort to drinking like Faye, Eriel, and Nichol gave their best to take at least 5 bottles of beer. Haha.

The food was good; it was meant for a drinking session. The party had my favorite dish Lechon Paksiw and fried shrimps. The fried shrimps are good—they are too crunchy that you need not to peel its’ outer covering (don’t know what it is called. Haha). While others are busy inside Homer’s house playing Sims, most of us are outside, singing our favorite songs in the videoke machine. We even had a contest. Incidentally, Perry MY Loves won the contest. She got the highest score when she sang the Voltes V theme song.

It was the first time I saw Homer drunk, obviously because he cannot talk straight, though he can still play decent badminton outside. And he always win. 😀
It was a far move from what transpired on the recognition day, where everyone has sullen faces because of emotional speeches by the Valedictorian and the Salutatorian.

I didn’t sleep till morning. I waited and waited for everyone to fall asleep but nobody did, so, I laid myself on the sofa and just closed my eyes to rest. On that time I thought of something that I should have realized couple of hours before.

That would be our last party, because on Wednesday, we will be wearing our robes. It will be graduation day.

It would be the last party that we are all together as a batch, as a whole, as a family. And it wouldn’t be sure if we will have a similar gathering in the near future, if we will be as complete as that one, if we will get drunk the way we were that time, if we would eat together again on a long table, if we would be playing Sims too. Oh My Gosh. That time, every experiences, every happy moments, every memorable moments of HS life kept on disturbing me. It is all coming back to me. Naaabsorb lahat lahat.

"It's all coming back

It's all coming back to me now

There were moments of gold

And there were flashes of light

There were things I'd never do again

But then they'd always seemed right

There were nights of endless pleasure

It was more than any laws allow

Baby, baby :D "

Sabi nga ni Faye “It is so hard to let go of you kasi attached na ako”. It is so hard to say goodbye and to send them away, pero naisip ko rin na hindi ko naman sila kailangang I-let go. Kasi kahit na magkakahiwalay na kami, doing our own business, nandon pa rin yung bond namin at magakakasama pa rin kami in heart and mind. Magkikita-kita pa rin in the future, kami kami lang rin ang magiging ninong at ninang ng mga anak namin, kami kami lang din ang suportahan sa mga kasal namin. At kung may pagkakataon man na hindi kami magkakita-kita, God has his wonderful tricks to make us see each other again.

Ayan na naiiyak na ako. Paano pa kaya sa Grad day?

Sabi nga ng isa kong kaklase, “All things, specifically good things, still come to an end.” I love you guys. Hindi ko kayo kakalimutan.
