“A Filipino may denationalize himself but not his stomach. He may travel over the seven seas, the five continents and the two hemispheres and lose the savor of home, forget his identity and believe himself a citizen of the world. But he remains- gastronomically, at least- always a Filipino. For, if in no other way, the Filipino loves his country with his stomach.”—From the essay: Where Is The Patis? by Carmen Guerrero Nakpil (via cold-nostalgia)
“It is when you no longer feel the need for money that money will come. The feeling of needing money comes from the thought that you don’t have enough, and so you continue to create not having enough money.
You are always creating, and when it comes to money, you are either creating the lack of it or the abundance of it. —Rhonda Byrne”—The Secret
...from "talking turkey with a bachelor" by cecile lopez lilles
Giving a lady a drink in a mayonnaise jar! What could be funnier? It seemed to me so surreal then, only to realize later on that, in the real world of bachelors living on their own, empty mayonnaise jars reincarnated as drinking glasses is probably the LEAST of offenses.
You’ve heard of bachelors microwaving shirts and towels when the dryer conks out, right? How about the laundering of jeans in the jacuzzi when the washer gets broken? How about using a fork to groom one’s hair in the absence of a comb? How about using masking tape to shorten trousers not because needle and thread are unavailable but because of a lack of sewing skills? And here’s the winner: how about using briefs for a coffee filter when one runs out of coffee filters? Other men would probably crow, “Wos! How ingenious!”.Most women would only double over and puke!
Dahil sa mundong pataas nang pataas ang stress levels, dala ng banta ng climate change, kriminalidad, trapik, polusyon. Wala nang mas nakakakulo ng dugo kesa sa isang taong hindi umaasal nang ayon sa kagandahan.
Q: Ano ba talaga ang ibig sabihin ng pilosopiyang ito?
Ilang gabay, alituntunin, at halimbawa:
• Kung di naman kagandahan ang katawan (at lalo na kung tadtad ng kurikong ang balat), ‘wag mag-post ng mga Boracay pics sa Facebook. Polite lang ang mga kaibigan mo pero pinagtatawanan ka nilang lahat. ‘Yan ang mapait na katotohanan.
