August 18/19, 2016

August is probably the most tragic month of the year for me. It's known as the rainiest period here in the Philippines, and it's also the peak season for my body to get sick. Believe me, every August, I am sick at least 20 days of the month! But there's no greater tragedy than feeling the 'hysteria' to go out even on a rainy day and getting to the venue with no sunset in the horizon. Anyway, it's just therapeutic to go to Manila Bay whatever time of the year or day.

========================================



August 25, 2016.

It's a lonely world. Sometimes I contemplate drowning myself in Manila Bay during a thunderstorm so that I would finally disappear from the world and nobody would find me... But the water is polluted. I might prefer to drown in a tank of dark chocolate beverage instead. Thank you. (I'm joking!) The sun shines after the rain anyway. Which is why the world kinda looks more beautiful by then, even without a rainbow!
