typhoon Ondoy

Image source:

I woke up this cold morning, thankful for a good night's sleep. The weather here in Cebu has been pretty fickle - strong winds with light to heavy rains turning to bright, sunny skies but is still generally okay for going out and about our usual activities.

I checked my Facebook to find that most of my friends' status updates were about typhoon Ondoy (international name 'Ketsana'), the latest that hit Metro Manila and other parts of Luzon. I must say Ondoy's hitting the country really nasty. As of the latest report, 51 have died and more people are missing. It's tragic and sad all the same.

Ondoy is sweeping Luzon away pretty badly and I am hoping and praying for the victims and all those who are affected by it. It is at this very trying time when, more than anything, everyone should help everyone. It is not about who is out there and it is definitely not about highlighting what one is doing about the situation. It is everyone's role and responsibility to help.

I remember...

I bumped into someone at the mall yesterday. He was with a lady, his wife. We smiled at each other and that was it. We passed by each other, he wrapping his arm around the lady's waist while I went on talking to my girl pal.

I surmise that if his wife werent with him, he would have stopped and we would have chatted up a bit. After all, we were friends, close friends at that. But I know things have changed now that he's married to the girl that came before and after me. Oh well, there never really was us but we had something together. It was good while it lasted.

Then I remember the first time we met; when we danced the night away; that first kiss; those sweet nothings; the time we lost touch; that day we met again; the time he asked me out once more; the moment he introduced me to his friends and danced the night away again - just the two of us; the early morning he shared his whole life to me; the moment I looked into his eyes filled with tears.

And then there came a time when I avoided him, not because I didn't want to but because I had to. A few YM conversations later, I would find out that he had married and had a kid too. How wouldn't I have known? He works in the same company with my boyfriend. Small world, isn't it?

I am truly happy for him. I know he is happy for me too. I will look back with a wonderful recall the happy moments I have shared with him, though not the feeling, and I will always hope for nothing but the best for him and his family.

There goes my mojo!

I can't believe it's been more than a month since I last posted something new here. I guess in the seemingly long while that I haven't blogged I felt that I have lost my mojo. That depressing feeling of not knowing what to do anymore, to the point that I didn't want to do the things I've always enjoyed, including this.

But now I am back with a vengeance. Unchronicled highlights of my life and my musings of the world I try to look back and would have wanted to share with you here, and now I feel remorseful. Moving forward, I must say I now have my groove back. I'm up and blog-giddy.

Hello blogosphere! I am sooo back!
