One Sunday Afternoon in Malaysia


Cr.2015-2016-Petaling Jaya Section 14
An afternoon stride  from church. This is the plaza going to our apartment from Menara Bakti area where we usually have lunch at the Chinese hawkers.


There was A Time

There was a time when horizon was vast and the mind was clear,
And the world was lovely and everywhere was rife with peer;

There was a time when gloomy skies where at sight,
And so I was fierce and fought with might;

There was a time when birds a singin’,
And you rarely hear when the bells a ringin’;

There was a time when you thought you are nowhere,
And someone is always there;

There was a time when you wanted to stop,
And you hear a whisper it’s not all about luck;

There was a time when all you hear is the music playing,
And all you can to do is stomp and sway with the beating;

There was a time when you have lived and carried out,
And surely you know it will come and you don’t want to miss out.

The Female Mistake

A satirical truth. This is fun,sensible, sharp pen you may want to read on. Great piece for me!

Adulthood is Terriffying

If you’re female, two things are true: First, you’re about to be offended. Second, girls are stupid.

Blah, blah blah blah, blah, blah blah! Yes, I know. You have a Ph. D. You invented Kevlar. You’re a savant who figured out how to soothe over-excited animals and you wrote some  books about autism.

But dismount your high-horse of feminism, Lady Godiva, and answer me this: Do you know the difference between a problem and a mistake?

No. Because you have a uterus. And it makes you stupid. Black people can say the N-word, Neil Patrick Harris is allowed to call people gay, and I am a card-carrying member of the “Women Are Idiots” club. This is America, dammit!


Now that 90% of you have left my small corner of the internet to find a more offensive and less interesting one, allow me to take a deeper dive into my…

A Pocket Full of Dreams

A Pocket Full of Dreams

Looking at the horizon of a quiet sea and cloudy blue skies

Dreams lie beyond reach for a restless heart and a playful fate

With unpredictable might came the waves that reverberate

Washed away, wandered, wrapped with iniquities

Serenity within is all the time paramount yet wearisome

The face speaks for everything mundane, nothing is for free

Holding on to your desires, painstakingly

For what is life without a profound meaning, without dreaming?



The Leap of Faith


As an employer it is best to be aware of what makes your workers think of leaving the company despite the benefits, compensation and career development they obtain. There are so many reasons why employees leave their company. Have you briefly taken a look into these reasons and tried to address them?

The top 3 reasons are compensation and benefits, lack of lateral moves or no potential for promotions, and the lack of empathy from the management. These are the common reasons that companies have been facing and are the challenges of the business that needs to be straightened out but will never be resolved as the individual needs are varying in its nature. As human resources department incessantly finds the suited candidate for a job, employees needs will ultimately  increase over the course of time.


The main reason of working is to sustain our needs and fulfill our wants, that is why when we are engaged in a company that pays a dime for a day’s pail of sweat makes us think hard whether to stay or quit. It usually makes it easier for you to quit your low paying job when another company steps in the way and offers a better compensation package with a job descriptions lesser than the  job you have come to loathe. Another reason for quitting is the lack of room for leveling up. Let’s face it, a smart employee will never cease to deliver great results if given a challenging, realistic task tied with a reward, in this case, a promotion. Children get bored with the same lessons everyday that their mind tend to wander and start to lose their focus and begin thinking of something interesting. In the same way, if an employee is doing the same stuff for a very long time, they would start looking for a meaningful job to attain a degree of achievement.

In my point of view, moving from one company to another makes no sense if you would be doing the same tasks that you have been doing in the previous company that made you decide to leave in the first place. Finding the kind of job that brings out the best in you is so good to be true. Most of us are just stuck in jobs that we didn’t even imagine doing in the past 5 years. The compensation of employees and management scheme of your company will always play an important role in the operation of your business. Your employees do the work and that alone is a good reason you should take a break and find out whether they’re happy to work for you.


This is not the familiar fastfood van that sells in the neighborhood or in the busy streets like those in Makati.

In one of the busy areas of Kuala Lumpur, just a few steps from the popular Chinatown ang Petaling Street this van is parked. Alongside the Kota Raya mall, where the multirace people are amassed especially during weekends these people are enjoying a free food from this van. The free food is from a good samaritan who devotes to helping those who arent able to afford a decent meal. Its a buffet style free meal for homeless people and desolated ones. Some of them Chinese, some Indians, and some are local Malays.

The food is mainly Nase Goreng and fried chicken with the spicy Sambal that never misses a delectable Malaysian meal. Theres sweet and sour fish but then again the sauce is basically spicy and hot.

A mixture of diverse culture and race gathered in these banquet.

Mixed Spices

Malaysia is a very diverse country that has different ethnic races. Native Malaysian  population is more than 50% , other locals are Indians and Chinese people and some of the total populace is from the Philippines and other neighboring Southeast Asian countries . Their country is said to be “megadiverse” due to different nationalities who have come to settle and live here. Due to the mixture of different races, Malaysia is one of the countries where food is of great varieties. Living in Kuala Lumpur is surely going to be one of the memorable days of my lifetime.  I have come across some of their daily Malaysian cuisines, thanks to my colleagues who never got tired of my curiosity and who were so nice and patient to suggest on what should i devour every time we take our lunch. Unlike the Philippines, we have the PUJ or the public utility jeepneys which is the common mode of transportation and we also have tricycles or pedicabs for nearby our errands, they don’t have public utility vehicles aside from train,bus and the Tekshi(taxi-i like the Malay word better :D). Almost all Malays have their cars since it is one of the countries with cheap oil price, it’s a necessity to have a car . My local officemates have cars so it wasn’t difficult for us to go to  distant restaurants and diners during our 2-hour breaks past midnight.

Chicken Satay
Chicken Satay

Satay coequals the barbecue we used to have during early evening in the Philippine streets. It could be chicken,beef, or goat or kambing(Malay word for goat is kambing also). It comes with a chili,peanut butter and God knows what other spices they have with the sauce, served with cucumber and onions which is quite unavoidable in hearty,warm Malaysian dishes.

Served with peanut butter sauce and God knows what other spices was it concocted! (tastes better with calamansi and toyo :D)

I have come to taste quite few other meals but i had so much difficulty in remembering their names. So far, Satay is the easiest dish name i did not forget.

MMA: No-holds-barred


          If you have imagined that Mixed Martial Arts was the hobby only for the Chinese people and the Asians, well, the Caucasians have their own share of the physiological art as well. Ancient Greece was the first to introduce this sport and was later on adapted by the Romans. The Mixed Martial Arts evolved from Prankation an ancient olympic combat sport that is mainly exercised by grappling and striking skills. It’s a full body contact competition that includes Muay Thai, kickboxing, wrestling, boxing, taekwondo, jujitsu,  judo, karate and other styles.

Freaking Out


This is one of those times when you breathe through your nose and you wanna feel it reaching to your lungs but somethings kinda blocking the airways and you feel like being strangled without knowing the reason you can’t feel the satisfaction of breathing.

It’s all so vague and I can’t seem to foresee anything from the future. It makes me feel cold going thru all this. I feel like I have no one to turn to. I have friends but I feel stupid running to them for the mess that I have inflicted myself. I feel it’s better to think things over and over until I figure out what to do.
There you go again with the shortness of air in my lungs! I keep telling myself no one is to blame about everything but me,only me. Now figure out what to do with the mess you created. You have done a good job in so far as creating all the miseries you have trudged on all your life! Job well done! Kudos to you!!!
I wonder what could this illness be. Inflicting harm to yourself by making decisions without even thinking about the consequences it would come about. Sometimes I would consider consulting a professional who could unfold this lunacy as I think it is. I often ask myself why do I do these things? Why haven’t I decided to do the other way, maybe things would’ve been a bit different if I did that…or, maybe not.
