Not Happy When It Rains

In Current Events, Personal on June 30, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Shirley Manson may be singing her heart out about feeling ecstatic when it rains and when its complicated but in my case, it just won’t work. That’s what makes her a”Shirley Manson”, she has the ability to feel happy when its raining. I am taking the song literally, I know.

I love the sun! I don’t mind the heat as I can go on my daily activities in life with a bearable or even an unbearable heat as compared to the depressing cold. I am not the depressed-emo type of person but rains and cold weather gets the better of me. My boyfriend who happens to be a Nurse tells me its the absence of serotonin that gets me down. Serotonin comes along with the sun. Its absence during the cold and rainy times is the culprit as to why people feel sad. I think this is also the reason as to why most people feel overly emotional at night.

I am not the anorexic type and I would give my arm and leg to be identified with Shirley Manson but I guess when it comes to raining, I can relate more to Karen Carpenter whose spirits are down at the dumps during Rainy Days and Mondays.

They are…..
Photo and caption by SEONHO SHIN

I think that real travelers are homeless people. They are always find new place. I met two people under bay bridge in San Francisco. Tom and Sandra; even though they don’t have money, house, and food, they are looked happy. And they said “we can move in & out without any contract” After 2 weeks later, they left their place. Tom and Sandra taught to me about traveler.

The photo touched my heart, the caption melted it. True Love!

In the future?

On the right is the mother and son tandem of Marlene Aguilar and Jason Ivler. On the left is the mother and son tandem of St. Augustine and St. Monica.
I can’t help but compare these two mother and son tandems. Jason Ivler is now in jail for killing over traffic problems. His mother, Marlene Aguilar is his staunch defender. She even challenged the father of Jason Ivler’s victim for a fist fight at the famous, Elorde Gym. That’s how crazy she is. But she is just a mother performing her role as a mother to her son who needs her. Good or bad, guilty or not, Jason is her son.
St. Monica they say became as saint because of the deep faith that she developed because of her son’s way of living. St. Augustine is a classic example of a bad turned good person and I find it funny and heart warming at the same time how his mom turned out to be a saint simply by praying for her child’s conversion.
Who knows 100 years from now, we may be having St. Jason and St. Marlene.

Fan Boy or Fan Girl?

This is a really old photo of Michael Jackson and Vilma Santos. This was probably taken during the70’s back when Vilma was still young and Michael was still black.

This picture made me think of two things:

Was Vilma Santos a Michael Jackson Fan?

Was Michael Jackson a Vilma Santos Fan?

If you are from the Philippines, you know how popular the woman that Michael Jackson is hugging in the photo. She is now a politician but she still makes movies. 

Now if you’ll considermy third question:

Could it be that Lucky is MJ’s  son?

Enough of my stupid imagination.

RIP MJ, its been two years. You will always be remembered. I will always be a fan.

This is a screenshot of Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago’s tweets. A true Ilonggo pride. See her advice about travelling.

I am not the type of person who works hard everyday of her life. But over the last month, I got so busy with my job. I feel bad for breaking my promise to update this blog every single day of my life but hey, I need cash.






Manila-Pampanga (not so sure on this though but my parents are sure to go.)


Cebu-Bantayan Island



This is why I’m working my ass off. This is why I spend 5 days a week at home in front of my computer. If the world will end on 2012, at least I got to see Brandon Boyd and Jonathan Davis.

As Joey De Leon said, T.I.T.E (trabaho,  ipon, travel, enjoy!)
