Thank You for the Music



You hear it. You don’t see or touch it. It’s everywhere. Lingering. Blissful. Inspiring.

But it can also be heart-breaking.

I have numerous encounters with music. It was something I learned next to talking. It helped me through bad times and gave me company during triumphant ones. It made me forget the sad realities of life. But it also reminded me of bitter-sweet memories.


You let me write my life story. You gave me the opportunity to make myself vulnerable for others to see. I relish every moment of madness I experience in your hands. You’re something I always clung into…


In times  like this, take time to save me. Salvage me from my propensity to self-indulgence and destruction. Once again, guide me with your harmony and words. Touch my inner soul. Pull me up and urge me never to return. Just like the ground — make me stand still.

Until I sing with you again…

Happy Three Years and Ten Months, Dear Axle!

Today is a very special day for me and my Axle. Every 20th of the month, we do our best to pay tribute to a day when true and unconditional love blossomed.

We’ve been friends before Axle and I started dating. It was on August 20, 2008 when I accepted his gift of love. And everyday since that year, I relish the said gift with all my heart.

We would normally just greet each other or cook something together whenever he’d come over our house. But today, I made the extra mile to make the greeting even more special. Here’s how I did it:


I was feeling sexy at this point so I asked my younger brother, a while ago, to scribble the “I ♥ AXLE” at my back – near my buttocks area. As he doodled on my skin, I almost choked from laughing so hard because the manner he wrote on the area tickled me, big time! Good thing, we were able to finish what seemed to be a “tat” session.

I posted this photo on my Facebook wall and would make it a point to erase it after an hour or so. I don’t think my conservative family would like the idea of my butt on that photo. Hahahaha!

Happy three (3) years and ten (10) months my dear Axle! I love you soooo much!
