I want it to be totally dark when I sleep so before going to bed, I always make sure all lights are off except for the one at the garage near the gate. I do this everyday since I decided to stay here last week. See, I am renting a room in a new 3-storey building, and I’m alone.
There are only two bedrooms here. The master's bedroom and the one I'm renting, both in the second floor. The living room, kitchen and dining area are all in the first floor. The third floor is just an open room, with a T&B in one corner.The building has a rooftop. Out of curiosity, I went there once 2 days before I moved just to check the view. I didn’t see anything except for G.I sheet roofs and the gigantic EDSA billboards nearby.
The stairway leading to the rooftop is quite dark but since it gets some light from the open door of the third floor, I didn’t bother checking for any lights. The gate that opens to the rooftop is made of cast iron which creates this loud, burglar-alarming noise when you open or close it.
Early Friday morning, I was at the rooftop again to hang my clothes outside to dry. Following my weird sleeping time, I slept after at about 11AM and got awakened around 2 in the afternoon.
I ran upstairs to check my clothes. I didn’t turn any lights on. I was surprised to see a dim light coming from the stairs leading to the rooftop. I never really noticed before that there’s a light bulb installed at that part. Now it’s on, like as if it knows I need it to be on right that afternoon. But who turned it on?
At that moment I was more concerned with my clothes, already dripping wet before I could get to them. I hung them on a covered area and proceeded back to my room and tried to continue with my sleep. I didn’t turn that light off, actually I don't even know where the switch is. I woke up at 6PM; I went upstairs again to get my clothes. The light is already off.
Not to scare myself, I came up with the following theories:
1. The light has a sensor. Like it turns on and shuts off automatically.
2. Someone visited the house, the owner, the caretaker, electrician, plumber, carpenter, or maybe an intruder who broke in while I was asleep and for some reason needed the light to be on.
I was thinking of taking a photo of the stairs and the light bulb, but I'm afraid something there might take it as a photo opp and scares me more. LOL
Here’s how messy my room was the other day, until now actually.
Don't have enough time to arrange my things. Maybe I'm just too lazy. Well, I'm staying here temporarily anyway, I'd be moving to another place again next June. Good Luck saken…
That day, I was in a hurry. I needed to take my dirty clothes to the laundry shop before it closes, the attendant told me they’ll be closing early. I will also be meeting my friends for an early dinner so I took a bath and because its summer and it’s hot, I drag my fan, near me just so I won’t get sweaty while fixing myself in front of the mirror ( I hate the after-bath sweating).
Then I heard a noise, from the electric fan. And it stopped. In seconds I wondered what happened. Until I realized that my middle finger is getting really really painful. I panicked I checked for blood (blood scares me!). None. But my nail started getting dark red. Look.
And imagine how strong my finger was.
Just check the bent blades…that’s of an industrial fan:
Hindi na masyado masakit. Pero andun pa rin yung namuong dugo. Pano ba maalis yun?
Thank you for being nice
A sweet smile in your face
An eye that sparkles
Would make my day bright
The first time I saw you
Was never interested to know you
Knowing you is unexpected
Being close I didn’t think of
As time goes by
I came to know you deep inside
Such a great person
Many will admire
People may not understand you at times
But don’t bother for they don’t know the real you
Keep on walking with head up high
For you are a true person like diamond that is treasured
Surprised aren’t you with this poem I made
A gift for you that forever you’ll cherish
It’s not gold nor silver
Not diamond nor pearl
It’s just showing how lucky I am
To have a special friend like you
That can be trusted
And can be proud of
Always remember God is with you
And forever I’m here anytime you can lean on
Problems or secrets you can count on
A shoulder for you an ear to listed
Thank you is a word
From my heart I would say
Thank you ELY for the friendship
You’re my unexpected and one special friend
The resort in Laguna was even more disappointing, I won’t even bother mentioning its name, in fact not a single picture was taken while we're inside. I don’t understand why they call it a hot spring resort when in fact it is not, and its DOT accredited, well, speaking of poor standards.
Anyway, we left early the next Sunday and visited Rc’s place in
I liked the orange room the most, but the lighting in the black room was perfect for picture taking without flash.
By the way, I started watching the first few episode of Prison Break. I'm hooked. Definitely way way past my expectations.

I'm passing this chain to:
Tired from the Manila-Batangas trip last Saturday, got no time to update my blog. The trip was so exhausting, for some reasons we ended up traveling for seven hours from Manila to Batangas. Naligaw ata driver namin. Going back to Manila, it took us only 3 hours. Must be the Saturday traffic, the driver not familiar with the place (dalawang bus, parehong naligaw), or may be we're just out of luck. Upon arriving, we learned that our room has been occupied by another group, we had no choice but to switch rooms. I got so pissed off that after dinner, I decided to stay away from the crowd and sleep the whole night.
The story: One guy got extremely jealous of me because of being so close to this girl whom he claims to be his girlfriend, the real score -that i don't know. She happens to be a close friend. Just friends, never romantic. I only learned the next day that I was taking a shower when he came to our room mad, angry and looking for me. Sinugod pala niya ako na hindi ko alam.
He then went back to his group.
Nagwala, umiyak, nagkalat...siya dun. LOL.
He should feel lucky I was in the shower, no idea of what was going on outside, or else, the worst could have happened.
Back in the office, I've been passing near his station all day today. He's stationed near the door so he has to bear seeing me every time I take a break.
Di siya makatingin ng diretso. Poor kid.
Anyway, i'll be in Laguna this Saturday with three of my officemates. Hope the hot springs there would soothe me.
She was never in the bottom three before so, her, getting the cut came as a surprise to me. I believe she deserve to have stayed longer.
We met at Trinoma.
As an icebreaker, we walked around, checking the mall and laughing at the funny, cheap looking ornaments on the ceiling, noticed how dull they painted the seemingly unplanned interiors and those dirty, unevenly laid floor tiles. We were like venting out on those things, so everything has become a bit lighter later.
We went up to what we thought was the best part, at the little Baguio (that's how she called it) on the rooftop and got amused by these young couples doing the PDA.
The scene reminded us of Burnham Park in Baguio , minus the jackets covering them lovers. She thought I should take pictures (stolen shots) and post them in my blog. I did (naughty me), with her giggling behind.
It was a funny start to a kinda emotional talk later. Nevertheless, we both know every thing's gonna be ok in the end. We'll meet again soon (hopefully outside the Philippines!!!) and laugh our hearts out about how silly we've both been when comes to falling in love...
I'll be in a resort in Batangas this weekend. I'm joining my officemates for our annual team building. Hope to have some fun despite having a Sunday night shift. Cheers!
