Kwentuhan Pa More




Kakatapos lang ng fifth season ng Game of Thrones.

Pagod ako, mga teh.

More tired and beaten in spirit than Cersei walking naked on the streets of King's Landing. It was emotionally draining. Maraming namatay. There were more questions than answers, and having to wait for 10 months is unbearable. Meganon? Speaking of questions, haven't you wondered why Cersei's "carpet" didn't match the "drapes"? Or why she even has "carpeting" for that matter? I mean, there was a scene in season 2 (or was it season 3) where Bran's wildling yaya (Osha?) seduced Theon (or was it his guard?) and she had what seemed like a Brazilian, and now here's the queen mother, as bushy as the Amazon. Ewan ko. Baka iba ang body hair convention sa Westeros.


I won't go through the GOT deaths anymore...or those still possibly alive or might undergo Lord of Light-sanctioned CPR. Sabi nga ni Miracle Max: "There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive." Mahabang kwentuhan yan. Limited ang blogging time ko. I'm editing a book about sea urchins. Won't they ever leave me alone after I freeze-murdered their kind? Revenge ba eto?

Malapit na pasukan. Napa-enroll ko na si Kulet. So, heto, nasa ICU na naman ang wallet ko. Comatose. Glascow Coma Scale 2: opens eyes in response to painful stimuli, makes incomprehensible sounds, and decerebrate response. Heto ako, luhaan. *What is OA, Alex?*

You know, medyo naawa naman ako kay Sharkteeth. I don't think she enjoyed her very long summer vacation. Well, not as much as I did during my summer vacations. She doesn't have any playmates kasi in our village. Walang ka-age nya na kids. The most interaction she had was last April, when we visited my parents. Nakapaglaro sya dun with kids her age. Up to know, ramdam ko na sabik na sabik pa rin syang maglaro. She's close to being a teenager na, pero she still loves her plushies and toys and running around. Parang ako lang when I was that age. I remember my childhood being so happy. Living in a street lined by houses of relatives, I didn't have to go very far para makahanap ng kalaro. Ilang kendeng lang, bahay na ng mga pinsan ko. Minsan we were playing at one of my cousin's home tapos may nakita ako susi ng corned beef. Tanga lang, I pushed the key sa electric outlet. Gggggzzzzzkkkk!!! Nakuryente ako! *Kaya siguro buhaghag buhok ko.* Eh takot ako na mapagalitan nung uncle ko, nagmadali akong umuwi. Hinayaan ko na lang na nakasaksak yun susi ng karne norte. Nakwento ko na yata eto dati. Good thing it's almost the start of schoolyear, bigay-todo na naman sa laro si S with her school friends.

Nakapamili na kami ng school stuff. Ang mahal ng shoes and bag. Juskopo. ~1.5K lang ang budget ko sa backpack, kaso wala yung hinahanap nya na style. She ended up with another design kaso mas mahal by 1K. Huhuhuhuhu! Sabi na eh, dapat nung may nagustuhan sya sa ukay na Cath Kidston backpack, binili ko na eh. Kaso parang mas maganda pa rin yung luma nya na Cath Kidston. So, no.

Tuloy pa rin ang aking early morning walks. My body needs exercise. I had my repeat checkup two days ago, and the results were mainly okay. It quelled my anxiety a bit.

Few days before the checkup, grabe ang stress ko. Not really stress, more like intense worry. I was worried about the results of my cholesterol and triglyceride tests, worried about my heart, worried about my blood pressure, worried about lahat na lang! I used to be able to let go of worry, thinking that what will happen will happen and I can't worry about things I can't control. Tapos, wala, balik uli ang useless worrying ko. If I can pinpoint the moment when my extreme worrying resurfaced, it would be the time when I learned Pattybee died last December or November yata of last year. Pattybee was a Girltalker, one of the early members, I think. Di naman kami close, not even acquainted with each other. Siguro kasi nasa same age group kami, with young kids as well, kaya her death hit me hard. Then last December din, I learned that my friend (and college roommate) was diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully, it was at an early stage and there wasn't any need for chemotherapy. Then this year, three more persons I know were diagnosed with cancer, hayun...sumabog ang anxiety ko. It hasn't reached a point where I am already dysfunctional or paralyzed with fear, pero I can feel that hindi ako masaya. I easily get snappy and impatient. S said that I barely smile na daw. I LOL, but not really, literally LOL. Buti na lang, after my checkup, nakakangiti na ako ulit.

Kaya heto, I'm trying to live healthier. More veggies, more exercise.


Here's one of the perfectly ORDINARY scenes when I walk along the baywalk of Rizal Boulevard -- amid people jogging and exercising and humans walking their dogs, here's a human walking his GOAT. Wait, what? A goat? Yes, a goat. It even hitches a ride on its human's motorcycle.


After my morning walk, I try to teach TheDog how to swim. To no avail. Ramdam ko ang takot sa mata nya, parang sinasabi, "Why are you torturing me? In my old age?!" Oh well.

We then go to the palengke to buy some fresh flowers and seafood. Panahon yata ng scallops ngayon. Palaging may tinda dun sa suki ko. Malalaki and very plump yung meat ng scallops. Ang mahal nga lang -- half kilo (around 10 pieces) is ~250 pesos. Shudder.

Hindi na eto current event. Last week pa yata. Napansin ko lang kasi na-okray si Anton (of Our Awesome Planet) sa Fashionpulis, ironically, for his (Anton's) own pang-ookray sa Philippine divers. Plakda kasi. Then he called them "mga hunghang". Ouch. Sa totoo lang, literally LOL-ing talaga ako. I wasn't being mean-spirited -- natawa/natuwa ako dun sa dalawa kasi nag-high five pa sila pagkatapos, then tawanan sila ng tawanan. I know Pinoy pride was at stake, pero the two were humble enough to accept their failure and let it slide. Parang yung dati sa Ondoy. Binabaha na pero nakukuha pa ring tumawa habang kalahati ng katawan eh nasa ilalim ng tubig. Pinoy spirit. Besides, their synchronized diving in a later event was flawless. Hindi talaga every time eh perfect.

O sya, baboosh muna. Next week will be a very busy one for me. Hopefully eh makapag-one last hurrah bago mag-pasukan si S. I'm looking forward to snorkel in Dauin. Nemo, here I come! If I get some decent pictures, ipo-post ko. Soooo...malamang wala. Hahaha!

  1. Naiinis pa din ako jan sa GOT finale. Paano ba naman lahat na lang ng namatay eh walang closure. Ni hindi man lang nagkita kita ang magkakapatid na Starks! Hay naku.

  2. Sinabi mo pa! Laging na lang so close yet so far ang nangyayari sa kanila. May nabasa ako...something like "Who knows, there might be a Stark family reunion in season 6. Don’t worry, party planners: You can book a small room." LOL!

    1. Cute, no? Parang magandang pang-centerpiece sa children's party.

  4. Kinu-kundisyon ko nalang yung utak ko na patay na nga si Jon Snow. Pero meeehnnn, paano nalang yung R+L=J? I was one of those who believed that theory pa naman. Sana talaga pabalikin nila si Bran at Rickon sa Season 6... and please lang, reunite them with kahit isa lang sa sisters nila.

    1. Firm ang belief ko na either buhay pa sya or bubuhayin sya. I know they're veering away from the book, pero it would be quite hard to change the story; then again, ang basis ko eh R+L=J. There's something sa meeting nung king ng white walkers and jon snow that seems to say na they'd be interacting further in the future.

  5. I don't think he's dead. Patay-patayan lang ang peg nya. LOL.

    I can totally relate to how expensive school stuff are. Below poverty level kami every May and June. Uniform pa lang, 3 sets lang ha, for two kids is already 5K. *sobs* I have two more years before the youngest goes to school.

  6. HIndi ako makarelate sa GOT. Well, konting relate pala kasi kinukwentuhan ako ng bunso namin so alam ko ang background at back story. Hehe. Waaaah, naground na rin ako dati kaya alam ko ang feeling pero hindi sya susi at hindi naman nagbuhaghag ang hair ko. Iba-iba siguro ang effect. Hahaha. :)

    P.S. Ang nice ng fresh flowers at nung wooden bicycle-shaped vase, ang lakas maka-shabby chic. Panalo! :)

I'd love to hear from you, good or bad. And remember, if you can dish it, you better be able to take it!
