Rivermaya – Balisong
Sinosikat? – Turning My Safety Off
Iron Wine ft. Calexico – Always On My Mind (Live)
Out of Body Special – Kamakailan Lang

As usual, my song choices for my mixtapes don’t match at all.. or have any consistency. Ah well. Here you go guys.. enjoy? Don’t enjoy? Don’t like it? Hope you like it? Haha. Anyway! I didn’t know you can go past 8 in adding songs, because the site is called “8tracks” after all. Apparently you can.. I would’ve added Rivermaya’s “214″ and Bamboo’s “Much Has Been Said”, but I think they’re gasgas and overrated songs na.
I wanted to add songs that people haven’t listened to for a long time. Forgotten songs (AFAIK) — yup. Also, most of these songs are from OPM artists. Song #6 is a new one, I found it while I’m watching Emily Owens MD. Such a bummer that the band’s 2 studio albums are not available for purchase outside their home country which is in Iceland!
That’s all. Happy vday to you.. whatever the V means to you. Til the next post!
A month ago, I shared a photo on Facebook from the Ayala Triangle park. I wanted so badly to go there because (in the photo) it looked so nice and very inviting. Look at it, doesn’t it look warm, cozy, Christmas-y, and like.. it’s calling you to just go there and watch the light show (that happens every 30 minutes)?! Because that’s exactly how it made me feel when I saw that photo.
Shot this one as soon as we got in the area of Ayala Triangle Gardens
Got my wish granted last night. . . my friends and I finally visited this go-to attraction and I finally witnessed these lights with my very own eyes. Needless to say, it was a very exhausting experience that I lost my mood to enjoy it. But at least I still got to see it, pwede na rin. I did not expect that this place is that much far from the Ayala malls.. plus we were going to this place and to Ayala back in forth in such a hurry (we had to catch a 7:55pm showing of a movie) so it really drained my energy both to enjoy and appreciate the whole thing.
PS: The post title is from one of Aly & Aj Michalka/78violet’s songs. Video here.
Here’s a little something for everyone visiting my blog for the past couple of weeks. Sorry, I have been very busy since Sunday. Work’s starting to pile up and as soon as I’m about to start w/ one of them, another one comes again. How I wish I’m getting paid for all the work I am doing!
I’m aware that my mixtape is a little unusual. Why the theme? No reason in particular. Lame reason though.. I woke up today, and as I went on to do my morning rituals (or not really, just house chores hehe) the song “Pice of This” by OPM band POT played in my head. Couldn’t get rid of it ever since and so I decided to look for similar songs and this is the result.
I would put a snazzy album art but I’m in a hurry to post this. Maybe later when I get back from a friend’s get-together. Hope you enjoy the mix (or not.. but that’s okay!).
POT – Pice of This
Kapatid – Prayer
Stars – Calendar Girl
Band of Horses – The Funeral
Band of Horses – Monsters
Glasvegas – Daddy’s Gone
Orange and Lemons – Hanggang Kailan
Stonefree – Kapag Nawala ka
PS: My first mix is posted here, and coincidentally, I posted it on a Saturday as well!
To ease myself from my mopey state (see previous post), I have been playing games off my iPad these past couple of days. I woke up the next day and thought to myself why not play with my iPad since I haven’t used it in a very long time? My brother has been using it all this time, you see.
I was currently bored with the games that I have here, so I randomly went to the app store to check the new releases they have. To my surprise, I found these two games..
Of course in this screenshot, I’ve already downloaded dem games. . . hahaha. Continue reading →
A week from now marks a year since I’ve graduated. Since that day, I haven’t applied to any companies, therefore not having any legit job. I have been somebody’s problem, a bum, a lazy person, an embarrassment to my family, whatever else you wanna call it, since then. I feel guilty most of the time that I’ve slacked this long because not only should I be helping in bringing home the bacon to this household (and at this point I should’ve be making more money already), but I feel like an embarrassment, too, having finished college with a degree that’s in demand, or so I think, and yet I refuse to work and give back to my good ol’ parents who have spent so much just to finish my studying.
What’s ironic is that during one of my classes back in college is that I was the one who had excelled best (in portfolio class, my panelist wanted to hire me on the spot but I politely declined.. WHY SELF, WHY?!), and performed best professionally-wise (is that even a term?) in my OJT class.
I have my reasons why I don’t want to commit to working at any company, for full-time, yet. Primarily a health issue is to blame here. Then again, I’m not exactly doing my body a favor here at home since I have failed on my self-imposed “diet” and “sleeping habits” that I should be strictly following. You only live once, right?
