The Story of Stan & Ielle

Isang Taon Published at 31 July 2018

Isang taon na ang nakalipas noong naglakas-loob akong kausapin ka. Isang taon ang lumipas, at tandang-tanda ko pa kung ano ang ating napag-usapan. Isang taon ang dumaan, at sariwang-sariwa pa ang alaalang tayo ay nagkausap. Mabilis ang panahon, at maraming bagay na ang nangyari. Maraming bagay ang napag-usapan. Maraming pangarap ...

Kagabi Published at 22 May 2018

Kagabi sa may kalagitnaan Doon tayo nagkakwentuhan Napag-usapan ang nakaraan Kung saan tayo ay nasa kawalan Kagabi sa panig ng sangkatauhan Ikaw ay tahimik kong tinitignan Mga mata mo'y aking sinilayan Pati ang ngiti mong aking nagustuhan Kagabi sa iyong tirahan Taimtim mo akong hinigaan Upang mawala ang iyong kapaguran ...

Mensahe para kay Binibining Marielle Published at 05 May 2018

Anim na buwan. Anim na buwan tayong magkasama. Anim na buwan tayong patuloy na nagmamahalan. Anim na buwan tayong natututong intindihin ang bawat isa. Ako’y masayang-masaya na patuloy tayong naglalakad sa paglalakbay na tayong dalawa ang bida. Ako ang mandirigma, at ikaw ang prinsesa. O pwede ring, ako ang ...

That Was Fast Published at 06 January 2018

Pagmamahal kay Marielle Published at 23 October 2017

Mahirap itago, ang ligayang nadarama. Dahil sa bawat oras na ika’y kasama, ang puso’y ko’y parang kumakanta. Umaawit ng masasaya, na para bagang tayo’y iisa. Iisa sa puso’t isipan, kaya ang lungkot ay di natin pinapatulan. Sa ilang araw, linggo at buwan kang kasama, ako’ ...

Meet the Parents of the Paw-rents Published at 04 October 2017

Indeed, it was the best birthday so far. I couldn’t remember celebrating my birthday with so much joy and excitement. My birthday was the chosen date for a previous acquaintance, and I never really got the chance to celebrate my adding-a-year-to-my-age day. It was an awesome day for me. ...

Honoring Ielle Published at 26 September 2017

Sulat para kay Marielle Lynn Bernardo Maligaya akong nakilala ka, sa paraang hindi inaakala. Maligaya akong nakita ka, sa gabing ako ay natulala.

The first one needed to happen. The second one made me go for it. It was a Friday. No one wants to go out on a Friday. Good thing it wasn’t pay day. We are supposed to either hangout with our friends/colleagues or stay home with our family. ...
