love thy parents01.31.07

Here’s something to touch our hearts…

Sa aking pagtanda, unawain mo sana ako at pagpasensyahan. Kapag dala ng kalabuan ng mata ay nakabasag ako ng pinggan o nakatapon ng sabaw sa hapag kainan, huwag mo sana akong kagagalitan. Maramdamin ang isang matanda. Nagse-self-pity ako a tuwing sisigawan mo ako.

Kapag mahina na ang tenga ko at hindi ko maintindihan ang sinasabi mo, huwag mo naman sana akong sabihan ng “binge!” paki-ulit nalang ang sinabi mo o pakisulat nalang. Pasensya ka na, anak. Matanda na talaga ako.

Kapag mahina na tuhod ko, pagtiyagaan mo sana akong tulungang tumayo, katulad ng pag-aalalay ko sa iyo noong nag-aaral ka pa lamang lumakad.

Pagpasensyahan mo sana ako kung ako man ay nagiging makulit at paulit ulit na parang sirang plaka. Basta pakinggan mo nalang ako. Huwag mo sana akong pagtatawanan o pagsasawaang pakinggan. Natatandaan mo anak noong bata ka pa? kapag gusto mo ng lobo,paulit-ulit mo ‘yong sasabihin, maghapon kang mangungulit hangga’t hindi mo nakukuha ang gusto mo. Pinagtyagaan ko ang kakulitan mo.

Pagpasensyahan mo na rin sana ang aking amoy. Amoy matanda, amoy lupa. Huwag mo sana akong piliting maligo. Mahina na ang katawan ko. Madaling magkasakit kapag nalamigan, huwag mo sana akong pandirihan. Natatandaan mo noong bata ka pa? Pinatyagaan kitang habulin sa ilalim ng kama kapag ayaw mong maligo.

Pagpasensyahan mo sana kung madalas, ako’y masungit, dala na marahil ito ng katandaan. Pagtanda mo, maiintindihan mo rin.

Kapag may konti kang panahon, magkwentohan naman tayo, kahit sandali lang. inip na ako sa bahay, maghapong nag-iisa. Walang kausap. Alam kong busy ka sa trabaho, subalit nais kong malaman mo na sabik na sabik na akong makakwentohan ka, kahit alam kong hindi ka interesado sa mga kwento ko. Natatandaan mo anak, noong bata ka pa? Pinagtyagaan kong pakinggan at intindihin ang pautal-utal mong kwento tungkol sa iyong teddy bear.

At kapag dumating ang sandali na ako’y magkakasakit at maratay sa banig ng karamdaman, huwga mo sana akong pagsawaan alagaan. Pagpasensyahan mo na sana kung ako man ay maihi o madumi sa higaan, pagtyagaan mo sana akong alagaan sa mga huling sandali ng aking buhay. Tutal hindi na naman ako magtatagal.

Kapag dumating ang sandali ng aking pagpanaw, hawakan mo sana ang aking kamay at bigyan mo ako ng lakas ng loob na harapin ang kamatayan.

At huwag kang mag-alala, kapag kaharap ko na ang Diyos na lumikha, ibubulong ko sa kanya na pagapalain ka sana, dahil naging mapagmahal ka sa iyong ama’t ina’

For Ely Buendia01.26.07


LivELY: A Benefit Concert for Ely Buendia (complete band list to be announced)

Eastwood Central Plaza, Eastwood City, Quezon City (free admission)

Sunday, January 28, 4pm onwards.

LivELY: Coming Together for Ely Buendia
By Jim Ayson
Tuesday, 23 January 2007

You might as well have been living under a rock for the past two weeks if you hadn’t heard all about the drama involving Ely Buendia, once the frontman for the legendary 90′s supergroup the Eraserheads, since then the Pupil of his new band’s eye. That’s right, the heart attack at the ripe young age of 36) in the midst of a gig, the twin
angioplasties, the unwarranted charges of drug use (by rock icon Mike Hanopol of all people), the denials, the talk show guestings, the recovery, the text messages from well wishers, and the hospital visits by Francis M bearing trans-fat laden Krispy Kremes.

Sensationalism aside, less talked about are the grimmer aspects of surviving a cardiac arrest in this country: The paralyzing medical bills involving the procedure, confinement, and subsequent health care. Forget the veneer of the rock star life – in the real world, people who get very sick pay very expensive hospital bills, and in the absence of the cushion of health insurance, even so-called rock stars need a hand to get back on their feet.

The bills are nothing to sneeze at. We bumped into Pupil bassist Dok Sergio recently, and he let on that the cost of the first confinement at Asian Hospital, where Ely was first taken to, and underwent his first angioplasty to treat a blocked artery, was already pretty substantial. That bill alone was easily over 700,000 pesos. On top of that, Ely underwent a second angioplasty at the Heart Center of Asia. You can imagine that the bill has probably hit well over a cool
million after that.

Factor in post-op recovery and rehab costs, plus medication and it all adds up even further. Ely might have struck an invincible figure on stage at one point, but in this instance he definitely needs help just to get back on track.

This fact hasn’t been overlooked by his friends in the music circles he calls home. And so a group of them have banded together to put together a benefit show – for the benefit of their friend and fellow musician Ely Buendia. Billed as “LivELY” the show will feature 20 bands. Admission is free.

We first heard about the project from Dindin Moreno, drummer of Parokya ni Edgar on Saturday, January 20. He mentioned a free show on Sunday. January 28 at the Eastwood Central Plaza, at Easywood City complex in Quezon City. Dindin passed my mobile number to Rico Blanco of Rivermaya, who confirmed that Rivermaya was very much in the loop. Other names surfaced – bassist Japs Sergio, brother of Dok. Rivermaya guitarist Mike Elgar and his wife She. Julie Pacanas, the former Eraserheads road manager and “Julie Tearjerky” of the fabled song was lending her production experience to the gig.

By Sunday, we had heard that over fifteen bands had signed on. Here’s the complete list as of Tuesday Night (now numbering twenty):

Parokya ni Edgar
Cynthia Alexander
Dicta License
Join The Club

Radio station Magic 89.9 TM is involved – the show will take place right outsideits outdoor gazebo/booth at Eastwood, and will be aired live as the event takes place from 4pm in the afternoon till evening.

And how will this help Ely? As of this writing, the plan is to pass the hat. It’s a free show, but people are encouraged to donate money to help defray Ely’s medical expenses. There will be designated sections around the performance area where people can make their donations.

For the well wishers who rooted for Ely to get out of the ICU, that task has been pretty much accomplished. Getting him out of the financial bind of those debilitating hospital bills is the next hurdle.

The musician community is pulling together to get one of their own back on his feet. Hopefully, the fans will continue to show their support. Musicians in this country may not be as amply compensated as their counterparts in other countries. But hopefully they can continue to count on the support of the fans who enjoy their music.

Angel’s NOTE: I’m really proud to be Pinoy. We Pinoys always try to share everything, even burdens. May it be through music, presence or prayer. I’m praying for Ely’s health, and to the concert. May it produce large $ to help him. So be there!

just sad01.25.07

His father is sick. He’s sad then I’m sad.

It’s just the way it is. Whatever he’s feeling, I’m feeling it too.
Maybe not that deep, but still, I can feel it.

I’m praying that God will take good care of his dad.

Sometimes by knowing this thing, I don’t know if what I’m asking from
him is really due or I’m just being selfish again. Life is short. Be happy NOW!

Be B.A.D01.22.07

I love to read inspirational emails. I got this from my very old friend, back in high school days, Rhea. Go on…read…

While shopping at a local Wal-Mart, I spotted a man with an acronym on his shirt that had “B.A.D.”

Being curious, I stopped the man and asked, “What does B.A.D. stand for?”

Trust me; you’ll be amazed at what his response was.

He replied B.A.D. stands for: “Blessed And Delivered”

That thought stuck with me as I finished doing my shopping that day. So I came up with a little advice for you today.

* When the enemy tries to attack you, be B.A.D.
* When things don’t seem to be going right on your job, be B.A.D
* When things are not looking good in your marriage, be B.A.D.
* When folks scandalize your name, just be B.A.D.

Get with somebody you know that you can be B.A.D. with!

PBA, Double Shift, and Ubo01.20.07


I was watching PBA with my sis and bro the other night. We were watching Talk and Text versus Purefoods. I remember tuloy years ago, when I was an avid fan of PBA. Mga 8-10 years ago na. But I was an avid fan, as in AVID!

My favorite team was San Miguel. Favorite players? Samboy Lim, Allan Caidic, Franz Pumaren and Hector Calma. Old skool noh? Hehehe. Actually, Samboy Lim was favorited first by my Ate Yen. But then, he grew on me. Kaya ayun! I like kasi yung dedication nya when playing…kahit na masaktan pa siya or whatever. Tsaka, isa siyang “Skywalker”…galling mag-dunk! I remembered pa nga getting so worked up with Jojo Lastimosa when he did (accidentally) something with Samboy while sky walking, causing the latter to have an accident and be confined in a hospital. Wawa naman. My heart goes to him. This is kinda cute…before, when I was watching their crucial game,like when they’re in the finals. I even prayed to God to let them win in exchange of me, passing my exam for that week. Baliw noh? Hehehe.

And the Ginebra was the least among my favorites. Ayoko kasi maduming maglaro. Oh bawal mag-react ha. They’re good pero yun nga lang. Basta naiinis ako ke Jaworski! Tapos…Hehehe…

I was so tired the other day. Know why? Coz I rendered double-shift. Meaning, I have to work 18 hours continuously. That is from 10 in the evening till 4 in the afternoon the next day. It was so tiring. GRABE! I was not productive on second shift. I was not on my 100% working self. Hayyy… I don’t want to do it again, unless needed.

I’m coughing and have colds. I wanna sleep and rest. How about you? How are you feeling today? Hope you’re feeling better than me.

The Perfect Catch01.16.07

Lindsey (Drew Barrymore) is an ambitious business consultant, approaching “twenty-ten”, whose spirit is as luminous as her beauty. High-school teacher Ben (Jimmy Fallon) is a good catch. He’s charming, funny and great with kids, but has a small… income. Sure, they have their differences. She’s a workaholic; he loves his summers off, but when they first meet, and despite their differences, their attraction is immediate and true love overcomes all. Everything is wonderful, and Ben seems to be the man of her dreams, until Lindsey discovers what a 23 year long obsession with his favorite team really means. Together they must decide if they will strike out or fight to keep love alive.

Haayyy… It’s a kilig and funny movie. It’s about knowing and realizing your priorities and goals in life. It’s about choosing what you think was making you happy, a happy career or a happy love life. Hey wait, is there really an option there? :) But for some there is. Basta ako, happy love life, kasi for me pag happy ka sa love life…magaan ang feeling! Parang rejoice! Hehehe…

But remember…seek HIM first and everything will follow…okidoks?
