Pansamantala

“May iba pa ba?”

Tinanong nya ‘ko habang nagsusuot ako ng pantalong pilit nyang pinatanggal sa’kin kanina lang. Kasalukuyan syang nakaupo sa kama nya, kumot lang ang saplot. Nauwi kami sa condo nya sa Makati. Di ko pa mahanap yung polo kong nabuhusan ng alak gawa ng inuman namin ngayong gabi.

“Oo, pero ikaw ang una. Bakit?”

Tila nagpakita ng bahid ng kalungkutan ang mukha nyang sanay sa ngiti. Marahil ito ay dulot ng pagkadismaya sa pagkadiretso ng sagot ko sa kanya.

“Ah, ganun ba,” sabi nya “Pero lahat ba sila tulad ko?”

“Panung tulad mo?” Napatigil ako sa pagbibihis ko. Naupo ako sa tabi nya, sabay haplos sa hubad nyang mga balikat. Ramdam ko ang tensyon at ang pinanggagalingan ng mga tanong nya pero di ko alam kung dapat nga ba akong sumagot.

Dahan-dahan syang tumingin sa mga mata ko habang hawak ang kamay ko sa balikat nya. “Mga tulad ko na may boyfriend na o kaya malapit na ikasal. Yung ibang babae rin ba, ganun din?”

Battle For The Net

Posted in internet news, politics, Random, security by Fated Blue on September 10, 2014

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10thEveryone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown Get creative! Don’t let us tell you what to do. See you on the net September 10th!

Life Update September 2014: New Work, New Life

Posted in life, Special posts by Fated Blue on September 6, 2014

I haven’t written something like this in a while. Let’s see, where do I begin? Ah! First and foremost, I have resigned from my beloved company of three years and nine months. Nothing too personal or hurtful; I simply wanted change and I figured the change has involve leaping away from my safe-zone which was what my previous company was.

What do I mean by safe-zone? Well I literally grew up both socially and emotionally in that company; I’ve earned the respect of everyone in that office and the offices the company is also connected to; I can practically do whatever I want and not be punished simply because everyone is comfortable with the way I am. Even if I probably wouldn’t become rich working there, my previous company is something I can literally be happy and comfortable waking up to for the rest of my life. I found perhaps the greatest of my friends there, I formed some of the most unbreakable bonds with the people, I’ve seen perhaps the most beautiful woman I could ever dream of, and I felt the most gut-wrenching heartbreak I had ever encountered but never, ever regretted.

You’d think I’m crazy for resigning from such a great place. Well, maybe I am. But sometimes you have to be a bit crazy to get the most out of life and I decided to take a risk.

Book Review: Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

I happened to find out about this book thru a friend whom I trust with good books and good music. I wish I can put her Facebook page here but we all have private lives we don’t want to make complicated. I was at a loss of what book to read that I almost went to my classics which I preferred not to read yet until I’m old and gray. I saw my friend’s review of this book and I quickly jumped on the idea that it must be really good.

Kettlebell Complex To Reinforce Upper Body Strength

Posted in health by Fated Blue on August 21, 2014

I’m not totally owning this complex but I just had to try this one out since I began thinking about it last night. I simply wanted to improve my cleans but at the same improve my arm strength. I can’t afford to strictly press my 32kg yet so I figured bent over rows would do nicely.

The complex goes like this:

Movie Review: Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Film (2012 and 2014)

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on August 21, 2014

First and foremost, I am truly apologetic that I was unable to write a review on the first film of the Live Action adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin though I was able to watch it on Day 1 as well last 2012.

To give justice to it, I’d like to make a review of it together with the awesome sequel I watched last night which, as hinted earlier, was also its day 1.
