Carlo J. Caparas and Joe D' Mango's Love Notes

Guess what? Last Saturday I saw these "masa" comics being sold in Filbars and SM magazine stand. Did they change their target market now and decided it's time to bring them with the glossy magazines and comics stand? Will it sell more than placing it on the newspaper stands? At least it became convinient for me to grab a copy but the stories doesn't relate to me at all! Even the clothes and styles drawn were so outdated! Some stories doesn't even have a story to tell. Well at least, these comics are still way better than NEO comics - such a waste of money. No story at all.

The Winning Entry

Here's my winning piece in the Valentines poem writing contest held in my company:

Feelings by Hazel Chua

Again feeling so low
Again memories flow
Wondering where I will be this Saturday night,
Wondering where you and she will be spending the night

All day I momentarily stare at nothing
Thinking what had happened to us
Does she care for you more than I could?
Does she love you more than I do?

Seasons have changed the time
Time has changed the wind
The wind has changed your mind
Your mind has changed my life

My soul wonders alone
Looking for the star that was once above
Why still dial? For nothing will change
But maybe if you did, everything will change

My smile would be back
My eyes would sparkle again
But then again
I don’t want to be led on
For nothing can be this cold
That I’m feeling tonight

End Coming

He was my knight in shining armour. That's why in my heart I've always called him Arthur. I could make his eyes sparkle. I could make him smile. I could make him laugh until he'd wipe those happy tears off his eyes.
But I could not make him love me.
It was three in the afternoon just when I decided to call up Arthur. That afternoon, my heart sank. He was trying to smooth his talk but all he wanted to say was that it's not going to happen.
With emotions dulled with a cigarette, I smiled. I smiled because I saw the end coming. I smiled because I wanted his final memory of me to be the one that was happy, even as I struggled to keep myself together.The day I met Arthur, it was as though a cupid had hit me into my heart. Maybe he is the one. Maybe not. The end.
I texted him that night. "I will wait no matter how long it takes".
I drank that night. I drank because one thing I know with absolute certainty about rejection is that it always hurts more the morning after. Whenever my friends ask how he swept me off my feet so swiftly, I would borrow a line from Goodwill Hunting and answer,
"Do you know how it feels like to think that you have someone who is an angel
sent down just to watch over you and that you are an angel sent down just to
watch over him?"
My angel doesn't love me.
He had gone as swiftly and suddenly as he had come, leaving me with a few memories and a lot of kindness. Yes, Arthur was the kindest person I've met in years. He had this way of making me feel like I was the queen of the world. In reality though, I was a lowly pauper begging for every scrap of time and attention he could spare.
Even a pauper has the right to remember. And I will. I'll remeber the time he called me up during valentines day. How he would message me and tell me how he wanted me so badly.
I'll remember how he srtiked a conversation trying to get to know me in a party. I'll remember how he held a cigarette without actually lighting it. How handsome he looked in his white shirt. How he swayed and danced to the beat of a live band, how he approached me, how we brushed each others cheek, and a million other things that were magic simply because he did them, thought them, felt them.
But most of all, I'll remeber how his kind eyes peered though my face, right through my soul.
I can take it. I'm going to be fine. This was the first and only lie I ever told myself and with good reason. My knight in shining armour didn't want to hurt me even though I wasn't his princess.
As I walked away, I turned to take a one last look. With or without me, Arthur's eyes would sparkle, he would smile or roar with laughter whenever he pleased.
It really comes as no surprise. Arthur was never my knight in shining armour at all.

Random Thoughts, comics, autobiography

I was looking for the comics "From Hell" as recommended by Julius but haven't found any... so yesterday I just bought "The Nightmare Factory". I also bought John Gokongwei Jr.' s "The Paths of Entrepreneurship" since I want to make it a habit to read biographies and autobiographies of successful people.
