some thoughts today:

can't wait to get lost in the night market
(photo by Lonely Planet Images)


one month and four days to go and mira and i will be off on a "lonely planet" of our own! i cannot wait. hong kong will be my first trip out of the country ever (never had a chance before), and i just know that i am going to have a blast (thanks to you, you know who you are!). and i just know that it won't be my last!

these days i pretty much have limited patience over everything. at the office i'm almost always sure to get irked over a badly constructed article, and no matter how i try to not be so blunt on the "offender" i'll always end up being pointy (saying observations and comments pointedly). i'm not a mean person, but i do have a mean streak sometimes and it doesn't help if people don't get it for the nth time. i guess this is the reason why i should never become president of the philippines.

i just realized that my faith in the filipinos' voting skills is almost about to be restored. i'm just glad that voters knew better than to vote the likes of goma and chavit into the senate. i'm not saying that i'm thoroughly happy with who's in the top 12 right now, but i'm pleased that people finally seem to have really thought about, and decided on candidates who could actually do the job -- not just make silly privilege speeches in the senate, order his aides around, make expensive and unnecessary trips abroad, and make the appearance of as if busy doing something good for the people. nagigising na ba ang pilipino? i certainly hope so. but my prayer is that whoever gets into the senate will not let us down again.

it seemed that the whole nation breathed a sigh of relief when manny pacquiao lost his congressional ambitions to darlene antonino-custodio. i guess nothing is scarier than getting into a boxing ring not knowing how and what to do with your hands, and your opponent. the people of general santos apparently knew this, thus darlene's landslide victory. it's really not enough to simply "want to help people" manny, even in boxing, it is not enough to want to fight -- you have to have the skills. hopefully lessons have been learned here.

not to say though that this year's elections was a clean and happy one. there were A LOT of cheating going on, not to mention violence (i lost an uncle to election-related violence just last week). sometimes with all the amount of killing, maiming, and outright violation of the law going on you'd think twice about this country believing that God exists. i am bothered by both cheating and people tolerating it. i have always agreed to ted failon and korina sanchez before when they say, kung walang magpapaloko, walang maloloko. change indeed, must begin within one's self. *cues michael jackson's Man in the Mirror*

something is seriously wrong with mark jimenez. how in the world this man can get away with this is beyond me. i know the truth can't always be found in the news, but looking at that man giving interviews just gives me the creeps.
