A Plea to Consider The Upgrade of Globe Infrastructure in Barangay Bonawon, Siaton, Negros Oriental

Good day, awesome Pillars of Globe Telecom. My name is Ian Limpangog, a resident of Barangay Bonawon in the Municipality of Siaton, Province of Negros Oriental.

Our barangay got connected to the internet around 2010 ... Read more

Post-lockdown travel plan: Dream destination push

At first glance, I thought it was a just another crawler or insect slayer. When I stare at the ceiling, my eyelashes are still entangled with the sticky eye discharge. Out of discomfort, I closed my eyes, and then I gently massage my upper eyelids with my fingertips, stroking down my eyelashes. It eventually removes the tiny specks that cling at the ends and refuse to let go. They remind me to hold on in spite of the difficulties. I open my eyes again, and then, I realize that the crawler is just an elongated hole with paint erosion. It ... Read more

Change the Way You See Love

With my work station facing the west, only the glass wall separated me from the sunset. I was seated at a perfect vantage point. At first, the sunburst drapes from the stratocumulus openings. It gave an alternating shade of light and dusk to the mountain ridges that bedeck the foreground. Then, as the sun disappears from the horizon, vivid hue of red and orange painted the welkin.

Onward to My First Major Climb with ShopBack

Travel, for me, is a major stress reliever. That scene with a blue sky reflected on the sea beneath, which gentle ripples broke towards the white sand strips that freckles the edges of the island back dropped with verdant massifs is a pure bliss. Then at night, you can see the stars flecking in the sky, while you are comfortably lounging on your hammock with both ends fastened on steadfast beach trees. Travel allows you to gaze at awesome amalgamation of greens, get pampered below the draping waters of majestic cascades, stride through vast prairies and lush fields, paddle across translucent ...

The 3 and a Half Reasons Why I Can’t Die Yet

Life has been so bitter lately. Tests, challenges, and trials have always been bombarding me since I gained my reasons. I stumbled millions of times and fumbled a number of opportunities. There came instances that I brooded; “Am I really a magnet of bad luck?”. There were moments that I thought of giving up, I thought of resting for eternity. Then the time has passed and I am still here (in this world), writing and reflecting. Afterwards, I realized that I was strong enough to get through those hard times. So, I wrote this note as a piece to grip ... Read more

A Certain Place to Find

In a relationship, it requires more than just understanding everything but more importantly to understand the things that don’t make sense at all. Somehow, the only way to make sense of what is going on is to just understand it the way things are, no further analysis. People sometimes pursue so many arguments so as to come up on how things should be understood, forgetting that things are simply the way they are. When we stay longer in a relationship, we find things are getting tougher to digest compared when the relationship is just starting. The longer you stay, you ... Read more

When we are challenged by our deepest fears and frustrations, we anchor on love to keep us above the fears and frustrations we have. Love for our craft, love for our parents or family, love for God, love for someone special, love for friends, love for the simple things, love for everything we have and we don’t have. Sometimes, what we are left of us is the love that encompasses who we are. It starts and ends with that very powerful emotion. When we begin to question our own capability to succeed, we go back to the craft we dearly ... Read more
