Kalanggaman Island [Palompon, Leyte] Philippines

White sand all over






















This small island is located in Leyte, specifically in Palompom.  My family and I visited this island a few years back (2011). During that year, there were no overnight huts, just regular huts that visitors can use for the day. I noticed some who brought tents to stay in overnight.  Continue reading “Kalanggaman Island [Palompon, Leyte] Philippines”

Cat and the Mouse Plus the Dog

I got home from work at around 430AM. Ado, our white cat, wanted to go out of the house. So I let him. I figured he wanted to take a dump. While I was waiting for him by the door, something fell from the roof. That something was a rat. Ewwww. I know right… I would say Ado got pretty excited with his catch. He wanted to bring his catch inside the house and no way did I want that to happen. So I just let him be and I went inside the house.

And now… My niece, who left her scooter outside the gate, woke up and then when she opened the door–yeah, you pretty much know what happened. But at first, I DIDN’T. Then I realized that Ado was very busy in the bathroom… So I went at check and lo and behold!!!

(Image above: seems like Ado is getting bored and wants Zoie to take over)

(When I took these pictures, I was on top of the chair)

(Image above: I actually felt bad for the rat…. And now you see Zoie moving in. And she did!)

Ado did get bored and decided that he wanted Zoie to enjoy his catch. But the rat was a bit too fast for Zoie. I had to wake up Joy and Maribel coz I panicked. In the end, Maribel got hold of the rat while Ado (image above) was just relaxing. It’s 6AM right now and my heart is still racing. What a morning!!!

Good morning all the way from the Philippines!!! 🙂

Kiss-Ass Politics

Okay… So it’s been awhile since I last wrote/blogged… I had so many things (in mind) that I wanted to write about but I was TOO LAZY to actually start writing. Yes. LAZY is the term.

I’m not going to say that I was busy blah blah blah. Come to think about it, I had (and have) a lot of time but I simply didn’t choose to use my time by blogging.

What have I been up to anyway? Hmmmm… Good question. I was READING. Online. News. I’m not saying that me reading is news. I’ve been reading THE news (believe it or not). And not the entertainment section!

A few years ago, I stopped watching the news because it stressed me out. But these days, (dunno really) I simply want to know what’s happening around me (though not directly affecting me).

I’ve been reading (mostly) local news. Local meaning Philippine news. Opinion columns and editorials. Getting views from other people (aside from myself). It’s still stressful but it’s reality. Politics. *puke* Too much politics in my country. Kiss-ass people. *puke* Rule of thumb: Do not kiss-ass and do not have your ass kissed. Why? Coz if you do you’d end up with your face on the mud. If you don’t kiss-ass and not have your ass kissed, there might/will be tough times… Times when you end up flat on your back. But with you on your back, you’d still be facing up.

What am i saying? Argh! Figure me out. Sheesh. The government is full of politicians who are either kissing ass or having their ass kissed! And a lot of them (right now) have mud on their faces.
