“Bakit kapag close kayo ng tao, open kayo sa isa’t isa?”

Dapat talaga nag-aaral ako ngayon e. May limang exam ako next week, pero dahil nakakawalang-ganang mag-aral dito sa bahay, ito na muna ang aatupagin ko.

Bale naghanap ako ng mga tanong na walang kwenta — ‘yung mga tanong na parang namimilosopo lang — tapos papatulan ko sila isa-isa.


Alin ba talaga ang nauna, ang itlog o ang manok?

Kung magiging scientific tayo ano, ang tamang sagot ay itlog.

Music is the answer

“Without music life would be a mistake,” philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once wrote. I have yet to decide if I agree with him or not, but in the meantime, I am going to answer so-called philosophical questions using song titles.

Sunday Questions #2

I’ve been feeling a little under the weather lately. Just some mild discomfort in the throat and the occasional coughing, but one can never be too sure these days, huh?

101 Questions

Nahihilo na ako sa dami ng mga dapat kong gawin kaya heto, pahinga muna. May nahagilap akong mga “random” na tanong sa Thought Catalog at sasagutin ko lang ang mga ito nang paspasan.

Music Questions, and other stories

Do you have any fan merchandise that is unusual?

I don’t think so, no. I was a broke-ass kid so I was never the type to spend money on fan merch.

I used to be surrounded by artists though, and they used to give me the coolest hand-made gifts. A teacher once gave me a wooden kunai (the ninja weapon from Naruto) which he carved out of mahogany. A schoolmate also gifted me a guitar pick with the Natin99 pattern that he painted himself. The paint (acrylic?) easily chipped off when I started using the pick, and so this guy reminded me that the gift wasn’t made for actual use: “pang-collector’s item kasi ‘yan!” Shet sorry naman! Haha.
