A father’s daughter

There’s something that a father can teach his child; it may not mean the mother can’t , but there’s always something.

Papa and I. Circa 1986

One of my grandma found this while cleaning her house.

My father and I was not close, growing up I kinda resented him but I know he loved me as much as he can. He taught me to treasure family.Β  That was his legacy. At the end of the day, they’re still and will be there. And that’s why, even though I hated my daughter’s father , I know she needs him. Such acceptance seems stupid but I don’t want her to grow up resenting him. It’s between him and her, not me and him.Β 

Never thought that I’ll admit it but i miss Papa.

Picture-less Post #28: Morning musing of an evening person

Still.
When most people are in deep slumber, some are energized, can’t help but wonder how they look forward to waking and starting the day before dawn. I’m not a morning person. I’d rather lose a lot of sleep than trying to wake earlier than a rooster.

Now, I’m ranting and this is my first post of 2015. I have no photo to share because its too dark for my phone camera. My body aches for my bed. Haha! If I value time, this is the best way to show it. Never miss a bit.
Most morning people are nice. Hahaha! Just an observation. And I guess they are that discipline.

Enough with the nonsense talk.
Music is keeping me awake and is rolling my imagination with the what ifs ans what nots.

Starting the day. Hope you reading will have a great day ahead. :)

Good morning

Picture-less Post #27: why does it stop?

For the past weeks, I have many acquaintances who for married or had a child. And every so often, they would post, cheesy quotes etc. The one that stuck me the most was:
“You never thought you could love another person more so, that you:d be willing to stand in front of a moving train for him.”
He was talking about being a father.

I have family issues but the thing that I accepted that I could never understand, is how does a father stop loving his child? Why does he chose so? Why do the caring stop?

Just sharing the thought.

Picture-less Post 26: on commute

We don’t have a car so I take a commute to and from the office. And with my everyday journey, I see different people.

Waiting over an hour, I saw a mother trying to calm her son. He’s maybe a year old or so. I suddenly miss my daughter. Its hard to travel with a kid. Waiting for hours in long lines, hungry, humid, hot… Poor kid. I was like that before. So I tried not to bring my daughter out. Or if ever we have to travel, I make sure to have enough for taxi.

I gave them my fan. Well, goodbye my handy-dandy fan. I hope in the short while, he found comfort in that. :)

We waste so many time, energy and patience. Hope those who can ease the traffic in my country, well, do something about this problem. I think it is an effect of having a ‘growing’ or ‘developing’ economy. I rather spend time with my daughter teaching her things than being stuck.

Just some thoughts. my feet hurts. I wanna go home!!!

Picture-less Post #25: opinions

Before, I read the news to be updated on the current events and sort of a stress-reliever.

I’ve been to different places and I can’t help to compare. I think we Filipinos have good qualities and are fairly intelligent, happy people but are soft at heart.

We have so many issues from political, environment, social status, human rights, equality etc… We want a good manner of living but why can’t we be disciplined? I mean, in our everyday living, we chose to wait on the side of the road or highway for public transport yet there are assigned terminals for that. Our govt agencies keep saying that they are low on budget but us the taxpayers, dont feel any difference.

For instance, more the 3 years ago, the Dept of Energy raises the capacity problem in energy generation and upto now, there is no concrete plan in solving this problem. It’s the duty and service of the agency to see to it that there’ll be enough or improvement in this sector.

Our airports. How many years has it been that we top the worst airport?! I mean, we are promoting tourism, Makati has multi-billion high-end govt building but we cant do anything about the primary airport in the country?! I mean? Com’n people?! A little bit of common sense and prioritization?! Our airport is named after the president’s father but they dont assign productive committee or implementors in the renovation of the airport. I mean?! Argh?! Is it that hard? Megaworld, ayala, sm, built a city is a years time why can’t the govt see to it that the people responsible for this is doing their jobs? They want it at Clark, but they should consider the travel time due to traffic, unpretty scenery to Manila, it is unbearable?!

Traffic. We are the most patient nation. Yes, the metro is congested. But hell, they cant implement a united public transport law. Agh?! Mrt, Lrt, PNR? We have several options, useable railway system but its not that maintained and can not handle the number of commuters.

These are only few nerve racking, brain swelling problems my country has. this is mainly in the metro.

Sorry for ranting. I love my country, but I think, there will be no heroes that will be written in our history books in this era. The nationality and love for country is dying. We are commercing for the new age but we forget about to “serve to people”.

I understand, I am a hypocrite for I choose to serve my family than to help solve these. Little things I can do. Rant. Follow the law. Pay my taxes.

I hate it. But this is the world we live in.
