"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."

project 365: the second five

"Everything in life is writable about
if you have the outgoing guts to do it..."

--Sylvia Plath

day 6. epiphany. i don't know the difference between camaron rebosado and shrimp tempura. are they really different or are they the same? if you know, let me know. you see, i like ordering camaron rebosado along with lumpia shanghai everytime my family dines out. when the menu says shrimp tempura, i don't seem interested so i look for something else.

day 7. there is a lengthy wikipedia entry on unrequited love. this is not surprising considering that wikipedia is wikipedia after all but i find this amusing. how did i find out? a lengthy conversation with an old-time pal got me thinking about valentine's day gifts and their meanings. i did a quick search and one click led to another until i stumbled upon the wikipedia entry.

day 8. gom is the korean word for bear. i learned this along with some chinese and other korean words while watching full house. the things i get from k-series!

day 9. peace advocacy campaign version 2007. truckloads of people in full battle gear and with high-powered weapons passed through the city's national highway yesterday. the said people are members of the moro islamic liberation front. philippine military escorts and the authorities explained the scenario as part of the peace advocacy campaign. talk about irony. whatever happened to kaleidoscope world's "you can't talk peace and have a gun"? no, no, don't remind me of the gun ban.

day 10. facebox. another one of those social networking sites which i have to ignore. there's friendster, multiply, yahoo! 360, myspace, hi5, tagged, eskwela, and the list goes on. i only have accounts for the first four sites mentioned. hassle enough. the invitations i received to join the rest, i decided to ignore. i have better use for my time.

p.s. project 365: the second five covers the period 02.18.07-02.22.07


  1. five days na diay? sheesh its hard to keep up with day counting :p

  2. it really is. i find it challenging. it helps that i'm chronicling things down and that i launched the project here. it makes the responsibility and the commitment to keep at it more real.

    to be honest, i want to make it to 365 but i don't know if i really can.

  3. just a reaction about your take on having guns...

    I think that if you arm both sides (in this case the MILF and the Philippine Army) then things will be in better order. Both side are aware that a single gunshot can lead to a disaster. This "awareness" leads to both parties being "extra-careful" about not shooting a member of the other party.

    O well, good luck in your project 365. I might as well start my own project 365. =)

  4. "peace campaign" complete with high-powered guns and ammo during a period of gun ban? farce.

    the sight didn't sell the idea of peace, it caused alarm.

    thanks for droppin' by. :)
