1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
3. Place your trust in me- it is crucial to my well being.
4. Do not be angry at me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment.
5. You have your work, your entertainment,and your friends. I only have you.
6. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understands your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me.
7. Be aware that how ever you treat me, I will never forget.
8. Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.
9. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out too long, or my heart is getting too old and weak.
10. Take care of me when I get old; you too will grow old. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: “I cannot bear to watch” or “Let it happen in my absence.” Everything is easier for me if you are there, even my death.
I just returned from a long hiatus. Sorry for not keeping this blog updated for about more than a week, I haven’t greeted everyone a Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!! Well, the day after Christmas, I went to a long day tour in Ilocos for 4 days and no access to my computer. As well as long holidays when I returned back to the city, so I haven’t been around the computer to update the stuff along.
Anyway, I guess it’s not yet late to greet everyone a Happy New Year and hope this year’s a better year for us!!! I will be posting first my backlogs before posting some newer stuff! 🙂
As you all know, the typhoon Haiyan (or Yolanda) landed on the Philippines last 8th of November (GMT+8), specifically at the provinces of the Visayan region. I live in Manila and have experienced a signal no. 2 category of storm. On the next day, it went okay and the skies are clearer. But, as it wipes the country, it leaves about thousands of death and a total loss for our countrymen residing in the affected areas.
Here you can see 31 devastating images of Typhoon Haiyan’s destruction through BuzzFeed.
It still breaks our hearts about what just happened. I may not experience the vehemence of the storm myself that day, since I reside in the city (but experienced facing the storm during the past years when they hit Manila), my fellow countrymen are there crying for their losses.
