HONOR AND VIRTUE

My Phantom, is inside my head

When I re-listen the very popular Andrew Loyd- Weber’s masterpiece, a musical based on Gaston Leroux’s novel, Le fantome de l’ Opéra, I came up on a very short diverted story from the original. Uh, well this idea just brought me because of my current feelings, current events happening to me now. So there. Feel free to criticize. All harsh comments will be tolerated! The inserted or the italicized “side comments” are mine as well as the introduction and the ending story. Lyrics were from MetroLyrics.

I see myself as WHAT?

In this society where standardizations are one of the basis of goodness, acceptance and peacefulness, I can’t help but think that out of the 3 standards posted by this world, I am aware that I have 4. That’s a large number isn’t it? Oh yes. But the standard is 3. Let’s go back. I am aware of my capacities. But out of the 4, I got nothing from the 3 criteria out of the society’s standards. Simple. I am out.

No matter what I believe in or protests or prove that “Damn I can do it too!” I am still Ephialtes of Sparta, despite of being strong-willed and brave, Leonidas, leader of the famous 300 warriors, politely REJECTED him for not being able to lift a weapon.

02 Feb This is what they do. Oh who are these “they”that I am mentioning? Ok here, well, I dont expect you to understand what I feel to these Koreans. There I said it. I mention koreans in general because fuck them that’s why.

Seriously. 

They basically sums up why I hated them. Trying not to be racist here. But, you cant remove things to someone because they’re capable of saying and thinking matters that are somehow, offending to others. Quoting a song from Miley Cyrus’ “We can’t Stop”, “It’s my mouth, I can say what I want too..” Indeed! But why do we still need to watch our words? Again, quoting a very well known quote, “..watch your words for it will become actions.” There.

Before anything else, I feel relief in saying this out loud (it’s because this is internet). 

Westerners stereotypes ASIANS in many ways. But the most gruesome of all is that we, Asians (yes, people, Asian here present from the Pearl of the Orient, Philippines in SE Asia) are canine and feline meat eaters. Now now! I beg to dis agree. Oh! Remember me? Hating Koreans in general? Ok! Filipinos, found the idea of eating meats unhygienic. Yes. I do love them as a companion. You cant eat your companion! How dare you right?

Well back to koreans, annoyingly, they do belong to these “Tin Man from Wizard of Oz” people. They do (hate to say this, specially at this time where I just had my puppy a shar pei mix, (similar to the picture but instead the shar pei in the pic was pure bred and he’s gone and now in doggie heaven. He had a flu people. We dont “I-know-what you-are-thinking now”) they do they do they do! 

I’m here to raise up something. And it is awareness. And it is for you to make your heart function again. Or your hypothalamus. 

I believe by posting my feelings here in tUMBLR instead on fb, makes me feel that it is much much appreciated by real enthusiasts, real critics, real human beings.

Review of an apartment. Just so I know “)

OVERALL GUEST SATISFACTION
  • ACCURACY
  • CLEANLINESS
  • CHECK IN
  • COMMUNICATION
  • LOCATION
  • VALUE
  • great place - even checked me in at 1 am!! might even have been later??!! Immigration was crazy! great location - security is fantastic - top of the list for manila stays - thanks John

    May 2012
  • We are big travellers - about 4 months a year. We have rented apartments all over the world and this was our best experience so far. Great apartment, great location and extremely attentive and friendly owner. John Charles responded immediately to any little problem we had - sorting out a problem with one of the ac units, getting us an extra set of keys etc. The apartment is by Rizal Park between the nightlife of Malate and the historical centre of Intramuros. Ideal for us. The views of the sunset over Manila Bay from the balcony were unforgettable. The building is new and very well maintained. Fast lifts, 24 hour doormen, pool and small gym. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit to Manila. And don’t miss the tour - unique!!

  • Mr Celdran’s home was mint.. Well presented and clean.. His support was amazing and I recommend to anybody who is interested.. Thanks for my first AirBnB experience John! Definitely see u again.. D

  • John’s apartment is one of the best places we’ve stayed at in all of Manila! It’s centrally located just adjacent to the US Embassy and all the travel companies, and Rizal Park - Manila’s famous and historic park. The apartment is thoughtfully furnished with exotic textiles from around the world, and the beds are extremely comfortable. It has commanding skyline views of the water, the city and everything down below. We loved the kitchen, the living room and the internet is fast and reliable. Communication before, during and after our stay was excellent, and couldn’t have asked for a more attentive host. John is also a famous tour guide of the city, so be sure to ask him about tours on your trip to Manila. Thanks a ton John for the amazing stay, we’ll look you up next time we’re in the neighborhood!
