"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

five things

I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things....
I play with leaves. I skip down the street
and run against the wind.

-- Leo Buscaglia

this post is inspired by weng, my former roommate. this is one of the off-shoots of our e-mail exchanges which revolve on the theme, five things. we're trying to answer five questions or share five things per e-mail so we can be updated on how we are doing and continue getting to know each other despite the physical distance.

let me share...

#1 What is it that you like seeing?

>> natural green: grass, trees

i like the canopies of acacia trees around the UP acad oval

>> friends (not the tv show, but MY friends!)

haniko's trio of witches:
thin, thinner, and the thin line

the caterpillar, the geeemail and the volcano
mga na-trauma
sa duranta...
mga isinuka ng begonia?

#2 What smell do you love most?

>> newly-cut grass (i love the smell of coffee, too...i just don't drink coffee, hahaha!)

#3 What is it that you love to taste?

>> green mangoes. (i like 'em small and sour. nam. nam. nam.)

#4 What is it that you like to hear?

>> sea waves, real birds a-chirping, my phone's message alert tone (hahaha!) and senti songs that either make hearts want to fly or die

>> people saying i have an unread message on my phone even if there's none. (apparently, many would always confuse my screensaver with the message alert indicator. how nice!)

#5 What is it that you like to touch?

>> hair (sa ulo ha! it doesn't matter if the hair's not mine, basta hair sa ulo. hehehe.)

>> my voodoo toys? (bwahahaha! hey, i'm only joking.)

meet voodoo boy and voodoo girl.
they are harmless. promise.


  1. those voodoo thingies area little scary, man!:)

    that's a nice idea, what you and your roommate do.:) you like green, don't you?

    naka-adto na ba kas MSU-main? 'sus, green kung green! nice, nice place! hehehe:) i love my own!:)

  2. babypink, voodoo girl is somewhat scary because she looks nasty, but voodoo boy is not. oh well, that's my opinion, hehehe. btw, i bought them at the UP fair last february. they're two of the four things i bought there para pang-asar (the other two being a pair of orange-red sunglasses and a pair of dangling earrings -- items which i know i'll never wear for more than five minutes, hehehe.) =D

    my fave color is yellow... next is blue and then green. hehehe.

    true! msu-main looks nice with all those natural greens!!! (i've been there only once...when i was in second year high school.) =D

  3. hey! parehas ta ug choice sa trio pix. wala lang :p gEEEmail

  4. lagi. ako sad. :D pero mas ganahan ko sa imong haloscan na comment board. :p

  5. thevolcano, true, my haloscan board looks better than this and has the smilies... but my haloscan account can only keep about 160 messages (the old ones get deleted =( after some time). with this blogger board, it's easier to keep the comments. =D

  6. hah...grabe na ituh..katwin...

    gibutang jud na haniko's trio of witches...bwahahahahha...mwhaahhahahah...mouli ba mo iligan?

  7. sada_haniko, ayaw mo? starring japun ka miski absent ka sa pics, hehehe. =D

    i won't be going home this summer... and same is true (i think) with the_volcano. i don't know what geeemail's summer plans are... malamang mouli na siya, hahaha!

  8. i wish lang makauli ko. pero ambot lang jud. huhuhu. mangita pa ko balay dire. gEEEmail

  9. hay pastilan...i was so excited baya mga baje...oh well better luck next nalang bah? ayo ayo mo mga bayots!:)
