Melamine + Lead Vs. Mendoza

Natatawa ako sa sinabi sa kin...





:) Di ba?

Nakakatawa lang, kaya ni pinost ko...



Nakasakay ako sa jeep, sa bandang harap, sa tabi ng katabi ng driver.

May namalimos sa kin na matanda,

Matanda: *kalabit sa tuhod ko* Penge naman kahit konting barya...

E(ako): *watching floaters, di napansin yung matanda*

Matanda: *kalabit sa tuhod ko* Sige na.

E: *looks at the her* (confused)

Matanda: (mutters something, cursing me) *glare*

E: *looks at her* (thinking kung bibigyan sya)

Matanda: (mutters something, cursing me) *eglare again* *walks away*

E: *watch her walk away* (wants to call her to give her some coins)

Matanda: (curses me) *evil glare*

E: (confused)


Eto naman... Galing akong McDo with take out...

E: *eats Fries while walking* (looks at yagit and thinks if bibigyan ng barya)

Yagit: *going to approach me, meets my eye* (retreats)

E: (puzzled)


Sa Klase... Bored na ko, kaya nag daydream ako

E: *day dreaming* (looks at V)

V: *catches me looking at her* (evil glare)

E: *snaps back to reality*

..... After class ....

V: Ikaw, ayusin mo yang pagtingin tingin mo... Parang, parang, ang sama mo kasi tumingin!

E: *puzzled*


Nagtataka ako bakit ang sama ng reaction ng mga tao sa mga tingin ko...

Isang beses nga, tumingin lang ako, gusto na kong habulin ng Itak ni "Mrs. Wicket".

... Normal lang naman tingin ko ...

Oh well...

Masama lang kasi siguro shape ng mata ko...

"sanpaku eyes"

Normally depicted as eyes with three whites... Sa left, sa right at sa ilalim.

Kung di nyo maimagine ganito hitsura nya

Yung mga ganyan yung mata e, kung tumingin e akala mo may binabalak na masama.

Madalas iniisip ng mga tao na violent sila.


Tingin ko, ang ganito ang ang kikita nila pag tumitingin ako...

Nakakatakot ba?

Bang Lu Min's Testimony (Di ko alam totoong title nya e)

Kung nabasa mo na to, Skip ka na sa baba...


Mr. Mendoza was already upset even before he saw on television what the policemen did to his brother. The other tourists who remained inside the bus were complaining. Wei Ji Jiang wanted to go to the bathroom. Dao Chi Yu was hungry and the rest were just groaning and whining like they have forgotten that our lives rest in Mr. Mendoza's hands.

The hostage taker, as you know him was really nice. He treated us okay and even let the elders and the children leave the bus. He said your policemen treated him unfairly. He was a policeman too and was accused of doing something he had no knowledge of. But your government didn't listen so he used us to get everyone's attention.

Things would have never turned for the worst if he didn't see how his family was dragged out of their house and taken into custody. He was watching the news all the time as we huddled around each other behind the bus. He shouted some words in your language then started shooting in the air. A girl about my age started screaming. Mr. Mendoza demanded her to stop but she didn't understand English. God, he had to slash her neck with a knife just to put her to rest. Her boyfriend who tried to hit him was shot in the head.

Tension was rising. You can see in his face how scared and confused he was. The bus driver ran away leaving him alone with strangers from a distant land. I can see him walking across the aisle, sometimes pointing his machine gun to one of the tourists. But he tried his best not to hurt us, especially those who really cooperate.

I guess its in your nature not to inflict pain on others unless it was necessary. I remember him saying that he will free us before sundown and implored us to forget everything when we return home. But his words don't matter now. The policemen were trying to force their way in, while we all lied down to shield ourselves from bullets. Mister Mendoza blindly shoots at his enemies which I think kept them from rescuing us. I hear sobs under the chairs. Some were even shouting the names of their loved ones even when the air merely eat their words. Kevin Tang tried to escape when the glass door was was shattered, but one shot and he slumped on the floor with blood gushing from his mouth.

Heavy rain pitter-pattered on the rooftop. In old Chinese saying, it means an end to a struggle. Finally, somebody was able to open the escape hatch at the back of the bus. Freedom. But I knew Mister Mendoza was still alive. I knew he was just waiting for a chance to strike back at his enemies. So I told those around me not to escape. Let the authorities come for us instead. Then there was gunfire. He was firing at his enemies with a machine gun. Those who were at the escape hatch fled abandoning us once again. It's like a nightmare with no end and to wake up means a certain death. Then somebody from outside the bus threw a canister. It forced out a black smoke that is so painful to the eyes and putrid smelling to the nose. People started screaming. We cannot breathe. Some ran in front of the bus but Mister Mendoza warned them of stray bullets. It was too late. One was hit on the head, the other was hit on the shoulders. Bullets were now flying. Its like the authorities thought we were all dead. Mister Mendoza finally realizes his mistake and said sorry to everyone, dead or alive. He then ran towards the front of the bus where he would meet his maker. As he passed by my chair with bullets whistling overhead, I clutched my hand on the velvet curtain and wrapped it around my face. All I could think of was to stay alive - for my child who is waiting for me back in Xinjang. I know I will survive, I will come home.


The story (yes, story) was wrote in a first-person POV.

Most probably this is fictional (Just like the story of the Woman from Hiroshima during WWII)

It was written in a way that it portrays the Mr. Mendoza as a good guy turned bad due to bad things happening to him.

I was laughing hard nung napansin ko na ang daming nag react sa story na to.

But they're saying the same thing, that this story isn't true.

So what? Its a good story though. Di naman sinabi nung gumawa nito na totoo to e. Haha

Parang The Da Vinci Code lang. HAHA.

P.S. Nag iiba pala lasa ng cereal depende kung sino kasama mo habang kinakain mo... o iba lang lasa nung gatas nila?

Saan na Tutungo?

"Saan na Tutungo?"

Lumilipad ang ibon patungong hilaga
upang lumayo't maging maginhawa.
Patungo sa lugar ng kasaganahan,
muling babalik sa magandang oras.

Di lamang iisa ang ibong nangarap.
Di lang lima ang ibong lumalayo.
Di mabilang ang mga ibon na lumilipad
patungo sa lugar ng kasaganahan!

Saan na tutungo matapos maghirap
pumunta sa lugar kung saan mag-iisa.
Kung saan ang kasaganahan ay lasap
ngunit saya'y di madatnan.

Aanhin pa ang yaman
kung puso'y naiwan
sa lugar ng unos
kung saan may nagmamahal.

Isa ang "Maalalahanin" sa mga pinakapaborito kong kanta sa Eraserheads.

I like the "message" of the song, well in my own interpretation.

Ngayon himayin natin yung kanta para maintindihan natin:


Saan na tayo papunta? Naliligaw na ba?- Masasabi nating may kausap ang kumakanta at naglalakad sila at di na alam ng kumakanta kung saan na sila papunta.

Dumidilim - Uulan na o kaya maggagabi na. Pwede ding sabihing dumidilim na yung kasama nya. Paanong dumidilim? Nalulungkot.

Pano nagsimula? - Tinatanong nya kung anong nangyari.

Nasisilaw, minsa'y natulala -Eto yung reaction nung nagtanong sa sinabi nung kasama nya. He's shocked, sometimes to the point he can't say anything.

Nawawala, nawawala ang panaginip - Eto nangyayari sa kausap nya. Yung panaginip, yun yung kinekwento nung kasama nya. (Which we dont know. Probably "her" (assuming babae sya) love story)

Nawawala, nawawala ayaw pang gumising. - Eto naman ginagawa ng kausap nya. Ayaw tanggapin na nawawala na yung panaginip nya.

Ilang ulit nang nadapa Di madala-dala - Ibig sabihin, ilang beses na tong nangyari sa kinakausap nya. Na yung kausap nya lageng nag fafail.

Nakikinig -Eto ginagawa nya pag nangyayari yun.

Tila lumalamig Nalunod sa hangin - Eto yung sinasabi ng kausap nya about dun sa kinwekwento nya. Nalunod sa hangin means, nasobrahan sa di kailangan kaya di gumana ng maayos. (kung ano man yung di gumana ng maayos, I dont know, maybe a relationship)

Tinitiis - Ang ginagawa nung nakikinig. :)

*repeat chorus*

Tuwing umuula'y bumabaha Di na nagsasawa - Description nung lalaki sa kinakausap nya, tuwing umuulan (umiiyak) ay bumabaha. At di sya nagsasawa (read "Ilang ulit nang nadapa")

Nakalimutan mo na ba? - He's trying to remind her that this has already happened before.

Maalalahanin... - Maalalahanin St. :) , dun to nangyari.

Alaala... - "Memories", inaalala nya yung memories nya with her.


I'm open for other interpretations, just comment... :)

Think. :)

P.S. May isa pa kong way of Looking at this Song... I'll Post it kung may mag cocomment man ng ibang interpretation.

Ang meaning nito sa tagalog ay!!!!!!!!!



Pero mas masarap sya pakinggan sa english no?

Ayon sa aking experience, directly proportional ang stupidity at pagiging uto uto.

Mas stupid ka, mas uto uto ka...

Pero naisip ko... Bakit may uto uto sa mga kaibigan ko?

I realized that you'll be stupid pag trinatry mong iimpress yung kaibigan mo...

Moral Lesson: Wag pa impress, it's stupid and you'll look stupid.

P.S. I was Outsmarted 2 times today... Wag na sana madagdagan...

Anong nararamdaman mo?

Anong nararamdaman mo ngayong araw na to?

Isipin mo kung anong nararamdaman mo...

Masaya ka ba? Malungkot ka ba?

Stressed ka ba? O relax ka lang?

Nagtatanong lang...

99 Luftballoons

"99 Luftballoons"
by: Nena

Hast Du etwas Zeit für mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied fuer Dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Denkst Du vielleicht grad' an mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied fuer Dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Und dass sowas von sowas kommt

99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man fuer UFOs aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
Eine Fliegerstaffel hinterher
Alarm zu geben, wenn es so war
Dabei war da am Horizont
Nur 99 Luftballons

99 Duesenjaeger
Jeder war ein grosser Krieger
Hielten sich fuer Captain Kirk
Das gab ein grosses Feuerwerk
Die Nachbarn haben nichts gerafft
Und fuehlten sich gleich angemacht
Dabei schoss man am Horizont
Auf 99 Luftballons

99 Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich fuer schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer haette das gedacht
Dass es einmal soweit kommt
Wegen 99 Luftballons

99 Jahre Krieg
Liessen keinen Platz fuer Sieger
Kriegsminister gibt es nicht mehr
Und auch keine Duesenflieger
Heute zieh ich meine Runden
Seh die Welt in Truemmern liegen
Hab' nen Luftballon gefunden
Denk' an Dich und lass' ihn fliegen

:) Enjoy.

Maselang Bahaghari

I don't really like maselang bahaghari before dahil di ko sya maintindihan...

Di ko alam kung anong meaning nya...

Pero nung medyo (MEDYO LANG) naintindihan ko na sya, medyo nagustuhan ko na rin sya

So ngayon susubukan kong liwanagin pa ang understanding ko sa kantang yun.


Akala ko ay dagat, yun pala ay alat -> naloko sya dahil hindi totoo yung inaakala nya...

Akala ko'y pumasok, sablay -> akala nya nagtagumpay sya

Pikit ko ang aking mata, ikaw ang nakikita -> Nung di sya nagtagumpay dahil sa maling akala nya, naisip nya sya...

Akala ko'y wala ng saysay... -> Nawalan sya ng pag asa pero nabuhayan sya uli.

Maselang bahaghari sa aking isipan -> Her smile.

'Wag kang mabahala di kita malilimutan -> He'll do anything to get out of his trouble. But he wont forget her whatever happens.

Paglipas ng ulan ay mapapangiti ang araw -> Rainbow after the Rain :) Di ba? Pag tapos ng unos, ginhawa naman para sa kanilang dalawa.

'Wag sanang mawala ang maselang bahaghari -> He's asking her to stay happy and strong. :)

Akala ko ay cool ako, may ulap na sa ulo -> Naging mayabang dahil akala nya cool na sya dahil...

Akala ko'y ang pera'y tunay -> ...akala nya ang pera'y tunay. akala lang nya... haha

Pikit mo ang iyong mata, ano ang nakikita -> He's asking what she thinks of him after that

Akala mo'y wala ng saysay... -> Nawalan na sya ng pag asa pero nabuhayan sya uli... (TAKE NOTE : AKALA)

Kung titignan mong maigi yung song... Parang pinipilit nung lalaki yung babae to stay with him... :)


Yan pagkakaintindi ko... Haha

Open ako for other interpretation...

Cool ba? :)

Rant: *FLOP*

Sa Tollgate

" Sa Tollgate"
by Eraserheads
Gumising ka
Nasa tollgate na tayo
May hawakhawak pang
gusot gusot na dyaryo
Di ko alam kung ba't biglang nagyaya
Basta't sabi mo ayaw mo na silang makita

Puno ng gasolina ang isip ko
tumawag pa kanina ang boyfriend mo
Buwan ay parang ulo na nabibilog
Mga paa'y natutulog...

Gumising ka
Nasa tollgate na tayo
suma-sabay sabay
sa punit punit na radyo
mga poste ng ilaw
Wag kang lumingon sa likod
baka may makitang multo

Kaya't kayong mga bata,
makinig kayo
Wag nakikisali sa hindi nyo gulo
Kung ayaw nyong mang-iwan
Di magsama kayo
At kung wala kayong alam,
Mabuti pa'y mag-ahit na lang...



Tabi mo muna...
(Gumising ka... nasa tollgate na)
Tabi mo muna...
(Gumising ka...nasa tollgate na)
Tabi mo muna...
Tabi mo muna...

P.S. Malapit na ko mag collapse dahil sa pagod...

State the Obvious Contest

The mechanics is simple:

1: Nakatayo ka.
2: Nakaupo ka.

A relationship has 4 dimensions



1) Length refers to Quality Time you spent with the other person.

Quality Time, ibig sabihin, may significant na nangyayari. Counted dito yung pag magkatxt kayo.

-Length Question-

Gaano ka-significant yung mga oras na kasama mo sya(o sila)?

2) Width refers to the amount of Personal Information you know about the other person.

Tipong, how wide is the scope of your knowledge about the person.

-Width Question-

Gaano karami ang alam ko tungkol sa kanya(o kanila)?

3) Depth refers to the "deepness" of your understanding to the other person.

-Depth Question-

Gaano ko sya(o sila) naiintindihan ?

4) Time refers to the amount of time simula nung nakilala mo sya.

Kilala as in, simula nung nakilala ka nya at nakilala mo sya, either by name or face.


-Time Question-

Gaano katagal ko na syang(o silang) kilala?


Kung iaapply mo sa totoong buhay

Stranger = No length, No Width, No Depth, No Time

Kaklase mong di ka kinakausap pero kaklase mo ng 3 taon = No(or Very Low) length, Very Low to Low width, No(or Very Low) Depth, 3 years Time

Bestfriend mo ng 10 years = Average to Very High Length, High Width, Very High Depth, 10 years Time.

Manong drayber na kinakausap ka about sa pulitika = Low Length, Very Low Width, Very Very Low Depth (kung naiintindihan mo sinasabi nya), since nung sumakay ka sa jeep Time.


Cool Di ba? :)

P.S. Credits to the one who came up with the Idea... Pasensya na if I modified it a little. :) I think its better kasi kung nasasakop nya kasi yung lahat ng types ng relationships. :D

P.P.S. Di ko alam kung may nakaisip na nito, pero sana wala pa para Orig Work to... >:)

Gender Equality

I usually yell "Babae ako!!!" for fun.

Natatawa kasi ako sa ibang nakikipaglaban para sa Gender Equality.

Same treatment daw para sa Men and Women.


Kung same ang treatment sa Men at Women, edi masaya, pwede tayong tratuhing babae ng mga babae so para na rin tayong babaeng mga lalaki! (Not in a gay way)...

Isipin mo... sa masikip na LRT... nakaupo si babae, nakatayo si lalaki... So kung gender equality (according sa definition nung ibang Pro-Gender Equality), dapat tratuhing parang babae din yung lalaki! Dapat tumayo yung babae para ibigay yung seat nya sa lalaki. >:) Same goes sa pag bubukas ng pinto, Women should open the door for men too! Same treatment di ba?

They look like a hypocrite pag sinabing gusto nila ng same treatment for all gender tapos they ask the Men to be Gentlemen.


They misunderstood the real point, the real objective of Gender Equality. Its not about the treatment! Girls doesnt want to be treated like boys. All they want is an equal consideration. To view them as humans. To see them as somebody who can do things like men. Not "if you this to man, you do this to use." nor "Men and Women are equal so both of them can act like a man or a woman interchangeably" but "If you let a man do this, can you let us do it to?".

I just hope tandaan natin yung real meaning ng mga issues na lumalabas ngayon...

Sometimes baka mali na pala pinaglalaban natin because we misunderstood its essence.

Tama naman di ba?

P.S. Parang ka talgang nashishinku tatsumaki senpu kyaku pag sinabihan ka ng "k".

Well, i was riding a jeepney at 11 pm...

Sobrang dilim.

Then in an intersection, tumingin ako sa bintana...

"Ang pangit naman ng lugar na to..."

Pag tawid, may nakita akong fastfood resto...

Then I realized na yung pangit na lugar na yun e yung isa sa mga pinakapaborito kong intersection... (Yeah I'm weird, i have my favorite intersections)

Napaisip ako...

We all see something... But there are hindrances para makita natin yung totoong value nya...

Mga bagay na nagclocloud sa ating paningin...

We all have biases, and prejudices.

Just like how the night and the limited view of the jeepney affected my view of my fave intersection.

if we are free from these biases and prejudices, makikita natin yun totoong value ng isang bagay.

Well, napaisip lang ako... :)

P.S. Bakit Humps ang title? Habang iniisip ko kasi to, may dalawang lalaking naguusap about "humps". :))

You're huggable,

Walang Masakyan...

May mga napansin ako pag walang masakyan ang mga tao...

1. napupunta sila sa gitna ng daan, tipong parang pader sila... take note, mukhang diretso yung hilera nila.

2. nag uunahan sila sa dyip kahit wala naman makakasakay dun dahil sobrang sikip na

3. sasabit kung kaya pang sumabit

4. itutulak ka kahit nauna ka sa kanya sa paglapit sa dyip

5. garapalan, para mo yung sasakyan iba sasakay (Nakita ko yung lalaking pumara ng FX, nung palapit na sya, biglang hinawakan nung babae yung pinto tapos pumasok agad.)

6. HARANG SILA SA DAANAN NG SASAKYAN... di makagilid yung sasakyan dahil sa No. 1... Ang masama pa, di sila tumatabi.... Result? Traffic...

7. may mga barker na mapagsamantala... Puno na yung dyip nung dumating... Tapos sasabihin na 2 pa... May sasabit na 2... tapos hihingi ng pera sa drayber... ~~. Hellooooooooo kahit wala sya dun sasabit at sasabit yun...

8. ang waluhan na dyip nagiging sampuan... may sabit pa!!!

Dagdag pa kayo kung anong napapansin nyo pag walang masakyan ang mga tao... :)

Brazil Nut Effect...

Naalala ko yung time na binigyan ako ng kaklase ko ng Macadamia Nuts...

Pag ninaalog ko yung lalagyan, nag ririse yung mga mas malalaking nuts...

Pinagisipan ko, paano yun nangyayari...

Well... Nagtitimpla ako ng gatas nung naalala ko nung nag sasalin ng asukal yung nanay ko sa lalagyan...

Inaalog nya yung lalagyan tapos biglang bumababa yung level nung asukal....

Tinanong ko dati bakit ganun, ang sagot napupunta sa ilalim yung mas maliliit na asukal :)

Ganun din sa Nuts... Malalaglag yun maliliit na nuts tapos mag ririse yung malalaki (dahil nasa ibabaw na sila nung maliliit)...

I searched for the Fancy term dun sa phenomenon na yun at nalaman ko na yun pala ang tinatawag na...


Brazil Nut Effect. :)

Apparently, dati pa pala nila iniisip kung paano yun nangyayari.

Now you know... (or at least Now you know the Fancy term for it)

Cool No? :D

P.S. Sino kang Jejemon ka? Wala lang, nakakatuwa ka... Haha

Oreo Nile

"Oreo Nile"

Listening to the water as it flows downstream
Watching the fishes oppose the flow of water
Dead being carried by the continuous flow
The same old flow that's washing and shaping the stones.


Ngayon ko lang napansin na may nagtanong sa kin sa dati kong entry na "Most Girls are Friendly at First".

Kung sino ka man, I answered your question :)

Dunning-Kruger Effect

Nadagit ka na ba ng trick question na...

"What Grade Do You Think You Deserve?"

o kaya

"What Salary Do You Think You Deserve?"


Me? A LOT... I tend to grade myself much lower than I should...

Humble lang po (-.-)

Oh Well, I dont need High Grades
(Hala lagot ako, oo nga pla... Kelangan ko pala magkaron ng Scholarship (-.-) )

Most people give themselves a much lower value when asked to grade themselves.

Some naman, they give themselves a high grade even though they don't deserve it.

Hinahanap ko kung anong tawag sa phenomenon na yun e

Pero ayon sa aking research... Yun yung tinatawag na:

Dunning-Kruger Effect (Well eto yung closest e)

To put this in simplier term, I'll quote a smart person:

"One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision."
-Bertrand Russell

Kung complicated pa yan eto...

Yung DK effect e pwedeng

1) Feeling matalino hindi naman + confident na matalino sya.
2) Matalino kaso nagdududa na matalino sya + hindi confident na matalino sya.

Experienced this before? :)

Or know some people who are like no. 1 and 2 ? :)

It can be seen everyday :)

Just observe :)
