China and America

China has extreme measure to buy America.
It is the duty of the dragon of Asia to be communist with a twist of lemon.
A smell of a dragon's breath instead of a fresh fruit from the gods.
China is dangerous or not but we should whisper to the Americans to stop
twisting the lemon and to see the south China sea.
The dragon of Asia can be choke by the Pearl of the Orient.
The Philippines is democratic that needs a flint to sharpen it's edges.
The Chinese needs job but the Filipino People needs the work to be done.
China and America must decide before the supply,
Will overcome the demand for the almighty dollar.

2008 U.S. Economy

The United States economy is going to be hard in 2008.

The gas priced in 1993 was about $1.50 a gallon and for 2008 it's about $3.55 a gallon.

A stimulus package from the Bush administration might strengthen the economy but
I doubt it will make any difference.

I am one of the millions of Americans who are struggling to survive the Recession.

The sub-prime mortgage crisis and the rising oil prices has tremendous effect on the US economy.
Thousands of Americans lost their houses and jobs.

I can survive in this struggling economy but compared my life in the Philippines the US recession is peanut.

compared to the millions of Filipinos who are still struggling to survive after the People Power revolution of 1986.

I still don't understand why rich people are getting richer and the average American family are struggling to survive in the land of milk and honey.

A Cloud Over The Horizon


I am always fascinated with clouds especially those clouds that never move or glitch. But my cloud over my head is not about cloud 9 but rather like a cotton that is soft to touch but easily wet.
The lenticular life in Boston doesn't have to be forever but I will move forward to
find a cloud that doesn't hover around my head. A cloud that can be easily blown away for good.

Used To Go Clubbing Here

I used to go clubbing here in the mid 90's.
I never met anyone, just stare and glare
And left.

Autumn In Boston

Almost Summer

1995 Autumn


Boston Orange Line.

I used to take this line. I was single and happy and love wasn't around the corner.

I dreamed that I could find my true love on this subway station,

Like bumping at each other when buying a token or exiting the train,

Helped her carried her groceries or just saw each other and fell in love.

Years gone by and the dream never came true,

I moved out of Boston and the wishful thinking

Just faded away.

You And Me


Virgos are more analytical and practical than Scorpios - Scorpios tend to be more emotional and raw. Scorpio and Virgo both have a deep respect for the qualities that make them different from each other.
Scorpio brings Virgo into a world of increased feeling and passion, and from them Scorpio learns how to be more logical and rational. Romantically, Scorpio and Virgo are both too hot for many people to handle. Although Virgos seem cool and detached, they can focus passion like a laser. If they shine that light of love in Scorpio's direction, Scorpio and Virgo can have a long-lasting, happy relationship.

Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos

Cancer Woman and Virgo Man
The love match of a Cancer woman and a Virgo man is one of those few ones that can result in lasting love and happiness. For the both the individuals, the most important quality needed in a relationship is security and in this area, neither will ever complain. He is as loyal as she is and both are extremely dependable and sincere. There will be no problems in the romance department too, since both of them know how to love and express that love. They will respect each other's needs and viewpoints and this relationship will be very fulfilling.
I am just wondering the relationship of Imelda Marcos with her husband Ferdinand Marcos.

The Majority Of Tibet


A Filipino Fighting For Tibet


This is the Democratic Flag of the Tibet.
So colorful and yet so lonely.

Live Free or Die

I wish the Tibet will march thru freedom without facing a bullet in her face.
I wish the peaceful people of Tibet will be sharing democracy with the Filipino people but it will take time and effort to create Democarcy in the land of everlasting peace.

We can help but the Dragon's breath is more lethal than from a barrel of a gun.

Tibet You Are Not Alone!!!

The Tibet Riot


Tibet

Tibet
Is a plateau region in Central Asia and the home to the indigenous Tibetan people.
With an average elevation of 4,900 metres (16,000 ft),
it is the highest region on Earth and is commonly referred to as the "Roof of the World." Geographically, UNESCO and Encyclopædia Britannica consider Tibet to be part of Central Asia, while several academic organizations controversially consider it part of South Asia.
Many parts of the region were united in the seventh century by King Songtsän Gampo. Between the 17th century and 1951, the Dalai Lama and his regents were the predominant political power administering religious and administrative authority over large parts of Tibet from the traditional capital Lhasa.

Tibet proclaimed its independence from China in 1911 on the eve of the fall of the Qing dynasty and the subsequent internal turmoil.

Tibet remained a defacto independent state until shortly after the conclusion of the Chinese civil war, when on October 1, 1949, the People's Republic of China was formally proclaimed in Beijing and the following year launched an armed invasion of Tibet.

The Chinese army of 40,000 men routed the unprepared defending Tibetan army of only 5,000 near the city of Chamdo. The defeat subsequently led to the signing of the Seventeen point agreement by the Tibetan Government.

Per Wikipedia

Free Tibet - Live Free

How can Tibet be a country if this country is China?
I never understood the cry of the Tibetan people.
I now the meaning of freedom because I was there in 1986 the People Power revolution of the Philippines.
I witnessed rosaries versus tanks and people versus soldiers. It was a revolution that was for the Filipino people.
But what is for the Tibetan people?
I will try to help them thru this blog but I should not be the only one.
The whole world should unite to free the people of Tibet from the Dragon of Asia.
The cost for democracy can be blood or just a drop of water.
But both should never be mix.

This My Car

My Real Wife.

Probably I will just take care of my car for now.
She doesn't complain, she doesn't fight back, she doesn't say anything
but too expensive to take care of.

A Lost A Friend Today

I lost a Friend today the everlating smile that
I cherish so much like the flowers of Baguio and the plains of Nueva Ecija.
I wish I never been so aweful to her but I was and I'm sorry.
My heart belongs to you but you gave it away to a man
that you met from the past and I hope you forgive for being me.

I Will Be Faster Than This Car

Central Luzon

Cabanatuan City

I might not see Cabanatuan again because of bad memories.
My life was bitter and hot in Cabanatuan. I left my poor friends sweating like a cow.
The violence I saw was just tremendous not to forget.
The place was full of memories but majority of the memories are easily forgotten because it wasn't the type of life that you will write on your diary.
I fell in love in Cabanatuan. One lasted almost a decade, One was just non-sense
and a continues love
in the land of milk and honey.

Perhaps when the hot climate of Nueva Ecija subside and people I knew will remember me for the things that made them laughed and smiled without a knife in my back.

Election day is just a normal killing day for this city. When fellow politicians will kill for the sake of their ballot boxes and kicking the dead bodies is the way to be elected.

Cabanatuan is not the place to be when you are looking for a peaceful life. Because life in Cabanatuan is much bloodier than the war in Iraq.
I hope this City will change soon and the violence will be forgotten.

Wake up Cabanatuan blood is not the answer to life

Tanga

Kasi hindi ako marunong mang lait ng kapwa Pilipino.
Hindi ko minamata ang tinulungan ko.
Marunong ako magpatawad sa taong galit sa akin.
Kaibigan kita pero inaway mo ako ng inaway.
Minahal ko siya ng minahal pero ang kapalit ay lungkot at luha.

Kasi hindi ako naghintay ng matagal na kilalanin siya.
Ako ay pobre pero mayaman sa pag-ibig.
Ako ay hindi kung sino na pinanganak sa Pilipinas.

Hindi ako purong Pilipino pero ang puso ko ay Pilipino.
Maski iba ang pagiisip ko, may dayuhan na hindi ko pinili.
Kaya siguro leto ang pag-iisip ko.

Poe


That's okay be happy and be good with your life.

You bombarded me not to call you again and I did.
You said goodbye and I accepted it.
I tried to approached you but you treated me like a trash.
You betrayed the love that was really meant for you,
And that was enough; but for me.
Go baby go for someone else to love.
But not now but in the future.

But you couldn't even wait to heal the love that I gave you.
Just a friend from the past reminded you of the past.

Single I must be for now because I cherish the love that was only meant for you.
But you always had doubts not me and it destroyed the love that I gave you.
But go on and goodbye for you should decide not to be with me anymore.
A cold winter in New England had past and the grave of Poe will be warmth.
