MAMA - Spice Girls

She used to be my only enemy and never let me free,
Catching me in places that I know I shouldn't be,

Every other day I crossed the line,
I didn't mean to be so bad,
I never thought you would
become the friend I never had.

Back then I didn't know why,
why you were misunderstood,
So now I see through your eyes,
all that you did was love,

Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
My friend

I didn't want to hear it then but
I'm not ashamed to say it now,
Every little thing you said and did was right for me,

I had a lot of time to think about,
about the way I used to be,
Never had a sense of my responsibility.

Back then I didn't know why,
why you were misunderstood,
So now I see through your eyes,
all that you did was love,

Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend, My friend

But now I'm sure I know why,
why you were misunderstood,
So now I see through your eyes,
all I can give you is love,

Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
My friend
Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
You're my friend


You taught me everything
And everything you've given me
I always keep it inside
You're the driving force in my life, yeah

There isn't anything
Or anyone I can be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side

You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were grey
Whenever I was down
You were always there to comfort me
And no one else can be what you have been to me
You'll always be you always will be the girl
In my life for all times

[Chorus: ]
Mama, mama you know I love you
Oh you know I love you
Mama, mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like
Tears from the stars
Mama, I just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul

You're always down for me
Have always been around for me even when I was bad
You showed me right from my wrong
Yes you did

And you took up for me
When everyone was downin' me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on

There was so many times
Looking back when I was so afraid
And then you come to me
And say to me I can face anything
And no one else can do
What you have done for me
You'll always be
You will always be the girl in my life


THE PERFECT FAN - Backstreet Boys

It takes a lot to know what is love
It's not the big things, but the little things
That can mean enough
A lot of prayers to get me through
And there is never a day that passes by
I don't think of you
You were always there for me
Pushing me and guiding me
Always to succeed

You showed me
When I was young just how to grow
You showed me
Everything that I should know
You showed me
Just how to walk without your hands
Cuz mom you always were
The perfect fan

God has been so good
Blessing me with a family
Who did all they could
And I've had many years of grace
And it flatters me when I see a smile on your face
I wanna thank you for what you've done
In hopes I can give back to you
And be the perfect son


You showed me how to love
You showed me how to care
And you showed me that you would always be there
I wanna thank you for that time
And I'm proud to say you're mine


Cuz mom you always were,
Mom you always were
Mom you always were,
You know you always were
Cuz mom you always were... the perfect fan

I love you Mom

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the mama's in the world!

Thanks God, There’s eBay!

ebay logo
I was never the seller type of person in eBay really. Back in the days when it didn’t occur to me that online business would actually work for me, I was purely a spectator. Add being a wisher too, who constantly adds up everything I watch on eBay to my personal wishlist.

The very first time I made a transaction in eBay was in April 2008 when I bought my second-hand Nokia N93i for a whooping price of PhP 15,000. Don’t throw me a look that says that’s not even hefty, because for a poor person like me and for the way the transaction is made, that’s got to be something. For a first timer, I didn’t know there would actually be swindlers lurking around on the site. But yes, I made my first successful transaction in eBay.

Since then I would buy in eBay time and again—from clothes to flipflops, to books and softwares, computer parts, among other—and thanks God I have never ever been fooled by any fraudulent sellers. I cannot imagine why there are buyers who got tricked. Pardon me but I guess they are plainly stupid, stupid for not being meticulous. Fortunately, all the transactions I made in eBay were all fraud-free. In fact, it was me who got into little nasty dealings with some sellers: I didn’t pay for about three items I won on bidding. Silly me, and poor sellers! They had to give me “unpaid item strike” cases.

Now it’s time I sold items. I just sold my three Harry Potter wands and two HP action figures, all for a price of 5,790 after the bid. It was both the need to have money for the summertime, now that I did not accept any teaching load, and also the urge to clean the house from things I could actually live without and things that had rather only sat up and weathered that prompted me to queue my things up for auction.

As of this writing, my feedback in eBay is 17, with a yellow star on, and counting. Selling and buying online is so much easier than the actual. That cuts off the hassle and the effort of your legs walking around in stores or your tongue talking to the seller. With online trade like in eBay, let your fingers just do the job!

Home Sweet Home: Back to My Asylum

home sweet home, smoking chimney
There may be many valid reasons to leave home, but there are so much more reasons to always come back home.

I first left home for a job that placed me in Pampanga and Olongapo in November 2008. Remembering back then, I had hard time adapting to the ways and culture these two places have. I had twisted emotions then: on one side I felt so damn free to do everything I wanted and go wherever I desired without the inhibition or opinions of my dear parents, but on the other side I wished I never left because the loneliness was difficult to bear.

Either my resilience or the being left with no other choice has moved me to go on with my life away from home, no matter how searing the pain of loneliness was, that even of wishing I could disappear like a bubble there and reappear as me back in my hometown. But of course that requires a miracle, and I could only hope and pray.

The only times that I could come home were at Christmas holiday breaks. And you can only imagine how fleeting the days spent with my family and friends could be, owing to the fact that there could only be two weeks at most for holiday break.

So this summer, I opted to refuse any teaching load as a clinical instructor and go back home. And go, I did. As a write this I am now in the comfort of our humble abode, enjoying the days just relaxing and sleeping, and, well, nothing else to do but rest. Sure my job pays me well, but rest and relaxation is something that cannot be paid.

Aside from missing my family and friends, I also miss writing so much. It is my very passion, and I have had such regret why I left writing on my blogs to nothing. But then again, whatever decision I made before that got my blogs unattended was also something I wanted or needed that time. That is what life like is…

So now I am back in my asylum, literally and figuratively. Here in My Consoling Asylum, I will do all in my power to get back to blogging again – something I so love doing. And this I will do now in the comfort of my very own asylum, in our home here in Tagum.

If you can't be a nurse, be a nursing assistant

Nurses have become so in-demand these days as more and more people put priority over their health and with lesser people engaging in the Nursing course. That's why countries such as Philippines, India and China has been a great source of nurses to fill nursing job vacancies in countries such as in North America, Europe and Middle East.

Apart from Nursing per se, other professions related to the health or medical field are also gaining popularity, like nursing assistant. This role is a little notch under nursing but still pays good. Nurses aid or nursing aids are an example of nursing assistant. Once you are a certified nursing assistant, you will get a higher salary, although it may not necessarily be higher than a registered nurse's (I am one!). But still this is one great career that one should consider, especially if Nursing is not just for you.
