Much I write about nothing



Today I would write about nothing. Have you read one, an article about nothing? I haven’t, and so if you already did, please spare me the slap that this wasn’t really an original creation of my shrieking mind once again espousing the term brilliance. This is obviously not a rambling post, a manifesto or a pseudo-intelligent commentary. Just plain nothing. And as the cliché goes, proceed if you’ve got nothing better to do. 


Nothing. I look at my cell phone, a black Nokia C3 with scratches on screen and fading characters in a key pad with its nine peso load, and thought that if it is indeed the measure of today’s caste, my head would be chopped first. Ten-tenenen-ten-ten…ten-ten, it ranged. It was a message from Fully Booked that my reservation for this book I’ve been salivating for is on due. I checked my wallet and aside from ATM receipts and ID’s, there was nothing there but a mocking two US dollars, one thousand Korean won and two happy faces of Sergio Osmena. 



Nothing. Had I have the money, bongos wouldn’t be banging rapidly in my head and I won’t be found in my room with a mounting laundry on the floor of underpants and suspenders while shooting pigs with bullet birds. I turned the dials of my radio, probably the one from Nikola Tesla himself, and there was Datu’s Tribe rocking like the first time I saw them in a mob. I turned it off. I don’t need more emo-schmucks. I, after all, got more dramas than you could possibly imagine and I don’t need to listen to anything more than that. Maybe that’s why no one bothers to read this blog. Enough is enough, the f--- saying goes. 



Nothing. True, it must be selfish that I shopped for new bed sheets and black satin curtains and complain about the bad state of my personal nation where it could be paradise for Butchoy, an eight year old kid with his bag of toys that contains soda crowns, a gnome figurine about sixteen centimeters tall stolen from some barren family garden and a half-used notepad, whose only wish is to eat in what he called a "styrofoam plate with small partitions" in it. But what could be done? I learned to raise my fist in rallies wearing my black Giordano polo shirt and dreamt of ostracizing black witches and wizards of this blue-red-and-white kingdom but was lost from the inertia of dazzling strobes and cups of caramel macchiato. 



Nothing. I blog in the middle of gossips, perpetual judgments and happy faces with smiles as wide as a Tarsier’s to no certainty as to why I’m still contributing to this idiosyncrasy of constant self-promotion, no, not on the verge of narcissism as it goes, I believe, way beyond that, and yet continue running on a treadmill like a rat. Was it the magnetism of half-naked bodies? The shameless sexual innuendos? Or the delusion of finding the right love in a wrong place? I hope not. 


Today I write nothing and gave you nothing. Nothing, that in the hopes that when tomorrow inevitably pave its way, I could give you something bigger than my man-boobs and my exploding tummy. And before I rant once more about me being “undateable” and how I’m this rejected package of everybody, I would cut loose. Tomorrow I will sue everyone who fabricated lies about me and drew malignant caricature of me in drag. But today, I will masturbate to Elton’s video with his beautiful face in it imagining how I could strangle his smooth neck as I shove my d--- in his mouth, pray the rosary in three languages then go to Quiapo with my tin cans and beg for conscience and coins with my fellow passersby.

For the love of Jet

It was only years ago when I discovered my love for jet ski, and starting then, I never miss an opportunity, if there's any, to take ride on that “water scooter” and fire away in the open sea.

Last year, I think, was the peak of my fascination. When Donald, my American cousin in law, learned that I also love jet skiing, he paid for a whole day rent of two jet skiis in Subic. If I'm in love with it, he's obsessed with it! Ang nangyari, ako ang nagsawa at his expense.

Jet skiing gives me a glimpse of freedom. It’s the ability to maneuver whichever and wherever direction you want, claiming the sea like a wide open universe to conquer all for yourself. You look back and you see how far you are from where you came from until it's almost gone. The water gushing on your face, like sprinkles of blessings from the goddesses, admiring and envious of your courage for taking what’s rightfully yours.

Jet ski. Escape. Freedom.

This baby is a Yamaha VX Cruiser with 1052cc displacement

So, how about a ride with me? C'mon! I promise, you'll be safe...

Paalam, hanggang sa muli

Ikaw na bayan ng mga magigiting, ng mga sampagang kay yumi, lupain ng Silanganing pangarap. Ikaw na pinagmumulan ng mga sundalong unipormado ng dasal, mga sundalong nagmamartsa sa mga tulay na lupa ng karagatan, gumagawa ng mapa ng pagkamit, armado ng mga larawan at ngiti, pinatatapang ng gutom at kamangmangan.

Sa ilalim nitong nagdidilim na langit, mula sa pulang lawin hanggang sa aandap-andap na dilaw na araw, patuloy ang paghabi ng mga samu’t-saring kwentong dumadaan sa iisang imprentahang nagmumura ng lintik. Nilulunok ang laway bilang pamatid uhaw; patuloy na lumalakad upang marating ang kawalan.

O pangarap. Pangarap ng de-kuryenteng gasera na walang nakasusulasok na usok na nanunuot sa tungki ng ilong. O pangarap. Pangarap ng de-susing manika, ng ma-kremang hamon, ng mamula-mulang keso de bola at kalesang may makina na pinatatakbo ng hanging amihan. O pangarap.

Humudyat na ang kampana ng kamatayan, kasabay ng imno ng kalayaan sa kumpas ng mga dumadagundong na sasakyan ng Edsa. Hayaan mong umawit ang mga uwak ng kanilang pasasalamat. Hayaan mong bilangin ng aking rosaryo bawat butil ng tadhanang dapat sana’y nanging mga oyayi’t kundiman. Taniman ng rosas ang nagyeyelong kumunoy. At sa mga mamula-mulang niyebe, ibulong mo ang biro ng pamamaalam kasabay ng isang awit sa himig ng pasyon.

Sa muling pagsasama-sama, iinom tayo sa saro ng dugo ng pagkabigo, pagtataksil at pagkukunwari. Tatawanan natin ang mga pang-aalisputa ng mga enkanto't diwata. Sasayaw tayo sa ibabaw ng mga gusaling binubuo ng mga palapag ng pagpapatawad.

Araw lamang ang lulubog. Araw lamang ang mamamaalam. Ano mang sikip ng mga eskinita’t lansangan, may tala pa rin ng pag-asang pinakikislap ng pag-ibig at paghamon. Ito pa rin ang parehong langit. Ito pa rin ang parehong buhay.

At sa araw na yaon ng paglaya, mamanahin namin ang  mga luhang hindi lumuhod sa kapalaran. Muli, ilalagay namin ang aming mga kamao sa kaliwang dibdib para sa bayang nilisan at marahil tunay ngang bumigo.

Paumanhin sa inyo, mga biktima ng pulang buwan. Sa katapusan ng isang madilim na bukang liwayway, nawa’y mabatid ninyo na minsan…may isa, dalawang pusong nakinig sa inyong mga kwento. Mga kaluluwang nakababatid na minsan, may mga matapang na sundalo mula sa isang bayang dating tinawag na Perlas ng Silanganan na nangarap hanapin ang buntot ng bahaghari sa lupain ng ilusyon at pantasya.

Mananalangin ako hanggang sa huli. Mananalangin kami.

Para kina Sally Ordinario-Villanueva, Ramon Credo, Elizabeth Batain, sa kanilang mga mahal sa buhay, sa daang-libong mga manggagawa sa ibang bansa, sa mga kapwa ko Pilipinong nananatili sa ilalim ng isang bandilang nakagapos at sa bayan kong minsa'y naging Lupain ng Pangako.

I refuse to grow up

You dance with your straight male colleagues ala-Masculados as the Batasan PA played "you don't have to be rich to be my girl" with crumpled papers and ball pens flying at your direction from a giggling crowd of press. Managed to whip up a revenge-sex and I'm feeling devilishly triumphant like some villain from a primetime teleserye. Bought Maria Ressa's "Seeds of Terror" and threw coins on a wishing fountain without anything in mind. All these, thanks to the all-great Flying Spaghetti Monster and Elmer, the Greek God of Glue.

In a few days, I will lose my job. I was reduced to the last bit and was insulted by the salary offer since the company cannot carry more the burden of my very small rate. It's always been like that, 80% of experience and 20% of your skills, not minding the fact the you do charity in your own job by doing four positions like news desk, reportorial, technicals then writing, all at the same time. I will lose my job because that's what they want to so I would like to call it an elaborate lay-off. I could do nothing. I'm not a regular employee, all ten of us, as with the thousand case of many media practitioners.

I tried bringing up the tears. I, after all, learned to show compassion for the struggling organization and I did my best to try and keep-up with the fast pace of competition.

I tried bringing up the tears like I used to but all I can muster is a hefty laugh and my crazy shenanigans. Tomorrow I will refuse to do my job and dance away with my Peter Pan friends at Republiq. Next next week I will empty half of my bank account to buy that camera I've been lusting for so long and I already said yes to a trip somewhere in Visayas to take it on a test-drive with my gang.

I failed, I know and I'm waiting for that huge sound of thud to come so I could cry and run to mama and look and sound miserable. I know I could call a few people and tell them what happened and in a month or two I'll get another job, probably. But why am I not having those meltdowns like before? I don't know what I'm expecting or even looking for but something is terribly missing.

Like before when a guy I dated would never call back after. Like then when I lost in a declamation competition back in high school. Like then when my father left to continue his work abroad. Like then when a classmate accidentally broke my mechanical pen.

Friends didn't say "you can do it, hold on" but instead, the fuckers just laughed and said "that's what you get from being so idealistic." Mama didn't say "it's alright anak" but said "kumain ka na, punyeta ka 'pag nagkasakit ka na naman magbabantay na naman ako sa ospital." And what else? My goddamn father called me and said "come here, my boss wants to meet you." You're probably wondering what's the punchline so for your information he's in Bahrain and it fucking martial law there! Goodness!

It was my bestfriend who told me what's happening.

"Bes," she said "that's what you call maturity. And alas, you meet him for the first time."

"Oh boy! Really now? But I refuse to...."

She just shrugged.

When I thought about it, I think I refuse to be mature. Being a child, a kid, is always easier. You think of the things you thought you need. Then you want it. Then you go for it. If you'll have it, you're happy. If not, you moan, you rant and the universe will conspire to deliver it to you because poor you would never stop crying, tears and slimes oozing from nose and mouth and then that's it!

And that, I think, is how it should be! I am kid for fuck sake! So what the hell is happening now?

Romancing the pain

For once, aamin ako na hindi ako okay sa paraang walang ligoy. No confusing metaphors and diversive poetic verses.

I am not okay. Patung-patong na kasi. Pero hindi ko kailangan ng awa. Salamat, pero 'wag na kayong maawa sa 'kin.

It's so painful. Ang sakit pala kapag ibang tao ang nagsabi sa 'yo na nakaka-awa ka kahit alam mo na rin naman sa sarili mo na nakaka-awa ka naman talaga.

It might sound egoistic,selfish and all haughty and proud, I don't care.

Whatever happened in the past, I think I managed to pull myself together well, pride and dignity intact. Huwag naman sanang kunin sa 'kin yung mga nalalabing yun. Yun na lang ang meron ako. Ibalato ninyo na sa 'kin yun.

Kung ano man yung meron ngayon, kung ano man ang meron sila, hindi na 'ko kasali dun. Nasa ibang aklat na 'ko. Wala na rin ang mga nakalipas na pahina. Lahat yun, pilit ko nang kalimutan dahil sawa na kong magalit at ayokong makasakit.

Iniisip ko na lang pinagbabayaran ko na ang mga ginawa ko noon. I know I did things, terrible things during my rebellious years, but I changed. I know I'm far from being good, but I'm trying. I'm trying...and here's what I got --humiliation [and lies].

And so, I thank those people who instead of saying "kawawa ka naman" said "nah, it happens dude."

Hindi ko na rin alam kung dapat ba 'kong magpasalamat sa mga taong nagsabi sa 'kin pero sige na nga...salamat na rin sa inyo.

Maybe next time I'll finally get it right. But for now, I'll sleep. So that tomorrow I could face my mistakes with the little pride I've regained myself. 

Until then...see you my friend

I am me. I am fine.


Don't pity me.


For a soldier, his pride and honor are his greatest shield and weapon. With the countless struggles, which include rejections, persecutions and physical defilement, in the twenty three years of my life, a lot has been taken from me: a normal family; my manhood; a comfortable life; different chances.

But all through that, I managed to grasp firmly with my pride. Because like what this general who chose to end his life in his own hands said: living without pride and honor is a tragedy bigger than death itself.


I am fine. Don't pity me.


I am me. I am happiness.


To pity someone is to look down upon that person. Compassion and mercy are what it should be, because for compassion and mercy to happen, one must either descend to that person's miserable state or lift him up away from that cauldron of hell.


I am fine. I don't need your pity.


I am me. I will conquer forever.


I will be fine.

When the saints go marching in

A man pasted a placard on his bicycle with his wife's name on it. He roams around, making his way around the rubbles, riding his bike, carrying few photos of his wife kept at the inside of his jacket, asking anyone he comes across if they happen to see her. Anxious passersby with their hurried pace shrug, others shake their heads. And off he goes again.

A family was reunited after three days of search and nervous waiting. Tears gushing in ther faces, they rush to one another then wrap themselves in tight embrace. They couldn't believe it. At the verge of losing hopes, they find peace in the midst of a stricken land at the return of their loved ones.

A father was talking to his wife on the phone, line was disrupted from time to time. He consoles his wife and says not to worry, That he's taking good care of their son well. They were safe and are waiting for the rations to come.

Kono Bokuke is looking for his employees. They were at his store when the rushing sea water devastated their town. Days after the quake, he jaunts one evacuation center to another searching for his people who might've escaped the wrath of raging tsunami. And he succeeded. He found one..two. And still, he longs for more of them. At the end of the day, he wonders, will it be possible for him to rebuilt his business?

Sieco Sato is looking over a space where once his house stood. He recalled as he watched from afar how his 30 years of hard-work that built his house were swept away in an instant, then crushed. He left, head and shoulders down, shaking his head.

***

I'll tell you what I tell people who ask me about the recent tragedies of the world with all the fear of catastrophes and prophetic doom.

I tell them, that the real tragic and most horrific scenes happen everyday. And you know what makes it more gruesome? It's that we are either too busy with all our selfish shenanigans or we simply don't want to care.

Twenty-five thousand people around the world die everyday because of hunger. And then look at our unfinished dinner plates. Look at the wasted bulk of rice at NFA's bunker.

Sabi nga ni Ricky Lee, ang Pilipinas ay isang napakalaking bunganga ng pagkagutom. Nakakita ka na ba ng taong kumukuha ng maiinom sa kanal para mapatid ang kanyang pagka-uhaw? Alam mo bang nung isang araw sa Bagong Silang Caloocan, may isang tatay ang inaresto dahil sa panggagahasa nito sa kaisa-isang anak na trese anyos na dalagita? 

Nababalitaan mo ba na kahit nagtapos na ang administrasyon ni Gloria Arroyo, mahigit dalawang dekada matapos ang Edsa revolution, marami pa ring mga aktibista ang bigla na lang nawawala at dinudukot sa mga iba't-ibang mga probinsiya at nayon? Alam mo ba na ang tagapagsalita ng Pangulo, si Abigail Valte, mali-mali at parang hindi alam ang mga sinasabi at ang media pa ang nagtatama sa mga pahayag niya? Alam mo ba na sa kulang dalawang-daan na suspek sa Maguindanao massacre, isa pa lang ang nababasahan ng sakdal?

Kapag ba tinanong kita kung ilan lahat ng brutal na pinaslang sa Maguindanao massacre, makakasagot ka ba ng hindi tumitingin sa Google o sa dyaryo? Kilala mo ba sina Sally Ordinario, Ramon Credo at Elizabeth Batain?

Behold! These, I think, are also tragedies! We are in the middle of a violent cataclysm, killing us all one by one, and the worst of it? We are deeply unaware or unfazed by all of it.

I'm not saying that all the problems of the world could be solved or should be solved. But maybe, or at least, we should try. We should at least try and start caring.

Eh nakakabili ka nga ng iPhone at Blackberry eh. Kabisado mo nga lahat ng applications at mga blog ng ini-stalk mong bloggers. Why don't we become an active member of this world, worthy of every grace it's giving to us?

You may probably say that I'm a dreamer. And it's alright. At least I'm not the only one. Right John Lennon?

Marapat nating iwaksi mula sa ating
Kaluluwa ang lahat ng takot at silakbot
Na dulot ng nagbabadyang panahon.
Angkinin natin ang katiwasayan
Sa kahigitan ng ating damdamin. 
At marapat nating pakaisipin na
Anumang darating ay tanging-laan
Sa atin bilang atas ng daigdig
na puno ng karunungan. 
Ang sumulong ng may wagas na pananalig
Na hindi nakasandig sa layaw ng buhay. 
Pukawin natin ang sariling kamalayan
Sa tuwing sisilay ang umaga
At sa bawat pagdatal ng dilim.

Republiq



It’s again my first and this time--- its Republiq baby!! 

Probably one of the top coolest hot-spots to stomp it out on the dancefloor nowadays, the crowd there is super dope! I mean, c’mon, it’s a haven for partyphiles like me. The sight of grinding hot girls is just too much  (for some reason, I like me some girl on girl action =p).

The space is huge, music is awesome, what else could you ask for?

Another thing I proved from partying there is that I’m abusing Facebook too much. It’ so creepy when you started seeing familiar faces grinning at you who used to be just small display pictures on the net.

One is a long-time crush, print and TV commercial by the name of Z. Another is a photographer/model who offers photo-shoots for what he says “a very affordable and high class standard.” He’s good, honestly and he gave me a tiny “kilig” moment there. He caught me staring shamelessly at him but instead of raising his eyebrow he raised his glass to me like  saying “cheers” then winked.

I went there, actually last Saturday (no party for me this weekend since I’m feeling a bit under the weather) to welcome a friend, Angela, from her month-long exile in Singapore.

Angela came back from whoring around that city and I was a bit envious. She resigned from ABS-CBN like me, but then unlike what I did (jumping onto the next job) she treated herself for a vacation after.

I missed her so much that I couldn’t contain myself so I kissed her on the lips. We’ve been friends since we both started our career in the network. I even owe her my life as she was the one who dragged me on the sands of Boracay after passing out from obsessive alcohol abuse on some party back then (the excuse is that. I’m broken hearted then..and still. Lol) all the way up to our hotel room. Dun niya 'ko talo. The bitch never get drunk!

Anyway, I hope you guys could check it out one of these days. I wish I took some pictures but my cousin borrowed my cam and I couldn't grab Angela's photos as it would risk revealing the persona of DB. But still I assure you you’ll gonna have great time with your friends and the people there. It’s a perfect place to leave all the drama behind. Believe me!

Space Oddity

This blog would be happy. The writer is not suicidal and his epiphanies would be wrapped in a sleek gold wrapper. Brutal verbs would be kicked by his polished Wrangell’s boots and bereaved metaphors would be swallowed like an 18 inch meaty Brooklyn Pizza. My sentences would lack the usual drama so that letters could laugh at its own silliness. Punctuations will often be in exclamations and question marks would trail away in some afternoon love song.

It is March but it’s raining pink confetti of heart-shaped cut-outs like its February. I should write about an evening with my beloved and how much we enjoyed Christina Aguillera’s groove only to end under a single gray blanket, spooning. This is, after all, a humanity of love wrapped in a tight rubber condom; where males elope with men and boys shoot their girlfriends for an attempt of break-up; a world full of lovers in constant slow-motion and a dollying camera in wide full circle without a director that yells “cut.”

It is difficult to write “lightly,” to conform to the demi-gods here and satisfy their carnal lust for feast, other rituals and whatever offerings they prefer.

I should smile as I sip scotch in some dingy bar where a pony-tailed singer/guitarist hums a song written by a frustrated poet.

Understand that I am no blogger. I tell people I'm a writer because I arranged words in a blank slate to earn a living; nothing more and nothing great.

I apologize if I barraged you with my drama concoctions and senseless ruminations of my childish vexations; of how sexually and attention deprived I am. I am, after all, a child, a desolate boy in his early adolescent years trying to fight the Captain Crooks of this Neverland, armed only with my pen and a small bottle of Olay SPF15 with no pixie dusts.

I’m sorry that I can’t write fairytales like most of you do. I apologize that you discover I’m not a prince charming; for disgusting you after seeing that I’m just a pauper with only his tin cans to boast. And I’m sorry if I don’t have a thesis statement for this post because this is supposed to be a happy blog and happiness is spontaneous, yes?

And so to happy thoughts, I give you a blog entry sliding in a winding rainbow where white cotton-candy like clouds puff merrily in a clear blue sky. This blog, dressed in a colorful sequined vest paired with a flared green pants and a precariously pointed white shoes. This blog, the very same blog that squels silently as Phil Younghusband categorically declare in Twitter his most honest and noblest of intention in taking actress Angel Locsin in a dinner date.

The writer will be happy despite a two hundred peso allowance ‘till next payday. The writer will not frown despite not having decent sound bite of Nonito Donaire since Dyan Castillejo snatched him away from the waiting media. The writer will just laugh after another rejection from an eyeball. The writer will put a tattoo on his arm, an icon of a pierced heart with a word etched below that says “love.”

I will write posts in a sing-song measure; like joyous round songs; like candid rhyming cheers.

Welcome to my blog; where butterflies fluttered cheerily and tigers feed on children’s palms; where breeze of calm wind kisses sallow cheeks, gently as it caress your billowing silk-fine hair. This is, alas, a happy blog.

Hyperball

My favorite niece, 1 year old Miel, got hospitalised the other day. But no worries, since she's all fine now.

Anyway, it was supposed to be just a visit but the poor kid won't let me go when I tried bidding farewell. So then I just asked someone from home to bring me blanket, pillows and my laptop.

Around noon, we're both sleeping plus her mom, when I heard a knock and so I got up and opened it. It was the nurse, a familiar one. He smiled. Apparently he remembered.

A few months ago, I was confined at that same hospital due to dengue, remember? And he was my nurse, real name is Mark.

So we had a few chat (we have a common friend, by the way just so not to shock you with the instant "closeness") then he invited me downstairs. Apparently, it's his breaktime.

"Let me ask you something," says me.

"Hmnn?"

"Why are you always wearing a mask then whenever you enter my room to take my temp etc.?"

"Because that's the standard protocol."

"Ikaw lang ang ganon eh, yung iba mo namang mga kasama di naman nagma-mask."

"Sila yun."

"Nandidiri ka siguro sa 'ken."

"Bakit naman?"

"You saw me when I was puking, when I was pissing, you even saw my shit. Jesus!"

"All part of the job description," he said with such boyish smile.

Silence.

How would I describe Mark.Taller than me. Dark. Not good looking. Average body. Alright, I slightly had, or have this crush on him since then that I was under his care (although paid by Papa's money).

I can still remember what he told me when his shift ends then: "Dapat pagbalik ko bukas wala ka ng lagnat ha." Sweet isn't he?

I broke the silence.

"I have to go back. Baka kailangan na ko ng ate ko," I explained.

"Wait. Let me show you something. This way," and he motioned me, directing to the back part of the hospital. I was all quiet the whole time.

Then he stopped abruptly then faced me, once again with that boyish smile of him. And then I saw it. I broke into a wide grin, satisfied by the surprise that I'm seeing.

"But of course," says me and then I chuckled.

Be music night

They say once David wrote a song, an accrual of chords that pleased the Lord. I wonder how it goes. 

And then I thought, what if I realise those chords and play the same chorus for you? Will it pleasure you? 

I sure know nothing about harp, but with a few pluck on my guitar and some taps on the ivory white and smaller keys of charcoal black that is my piano,  I can render you a symphony; a delicate revelation of my agonizing love to thee. 

Shall I make you a song? Please listen, please. 

Let me begin with a major C, a perfect key for my feeble voice. Then I shall trail up to G, falling to major F, only to return at once to C. Then again from C, let the minor fall to A and let the G be the bridge to my climactic chorus. 

But tell me. Will a single ballad be enough? Or should I write 73 psalms like David? You need not worry, for even thousands, I'd never run out of music as long as it's for you.

Remaining quiet, are we? Ah, I forgot silence is part of music. And you, my Gallant, is silence.

But I can dream. I can dream that at some point you’ll sing back the melody and we can sing along. 

Remember. Remember that in love, it need not be in unison, but a chord of harmonizing notes gathered in a common beat.



it may not always be so; and I say
that if your lips which I have loved, should touch
another's, and your dear strong fingers clutch 
his heart; if on another's face your sweet face lay
in such silence as I know, or such
great writhing words as, uttering overmuch
stand helplessly before the spirit at bay;
Accept all happiness from me.
Then I shall turn my face, and hear one bird
sing terribly afar in some distant lost land.
