Close Your Eyes Before It’s Dark


5 months since the start of the quarantine and I am still in perpetual isolation.

Just kidding, I go out at least once a week to go to Aling Puring. Other than that, I work from home. I should be thankful, right? But I must admit being cooped up inside the house has affected me, I can’t explain why, of course, there is the pandemic and all of us are trying to cope with it. I rarely post on my personal social media account, I have nothing much to post anyway.

Aside from work, I entertain myself by watching videos and one of the dramas I stumbled upon is “Q Series: Close Your Eyes Before It’s Dark”, a Taiwanese miniseries which premiered in 2016. It’s just seven episodes and I finished it for two days.

The series “revolves around eight friends who were classmates and members of the mountain-climbing club from ten years ago and their venture into a mountain to uncover truths from the past.”

It’s a slow burn but I kept watching because the plot was intriguing and up until the end you’ll be surprised at the twist and turns of the story.

Close Your Eyes Before It’s Dark is available on Netflix.

Nakakapagod


Pang-ilang araw na ba mula nang mag-lockdown? Hindi ko na alam kung ano pang klase ng quarantine ang iiimplement ng mga kinauukulan. ECQ, MECQ, GCQ Fortified Community Quarantine with Ginkgo Biloba and L-Carnitine na yata. Puro lockdown pero wala pa rin malinaw na sistema sa Tracing, Testing at Isolation ng mga tinamaan ng COVID-19.

Araw-araw ang bumubungad sa atin ay masamang balita, tumataas ang cases, wala pa rin public transportation, pagod na ang ating mga health worker, mass lay-offs at walang ayuda ang mga nangangailangan. Sana pakinggan ng gobyerno ang hinaing at rekomendasyon lalo na ng mga nasa health sector, hindi yung puro solusyong militar. Sabi “Think Positive” pero ako napapagod na, ikaw ba?

Ilang araw na lang at maririnig na natin uli si Jose Mari Chan pero kung ganito ang sitwasyon, anong Pasko ang ating aasahan? Ang matutuwa lang ay ang mga nagtatagong Ninong at Ninang.

Till my next rant. Stay fresh and Stay safe peeps.

 

 

Day 3: Community Quarantine Diary


Nakakabinging katahimikan, yan ang bumungad sa akin pagkagising matapos ideklara kagabi ang enhanced community quarantine. Sino ang mag-aakala na mararanasan natin ang ganitong scenario, yung mga nababasa sa mga dystopian novels ay tila nagkatotoo.

Si Mama ay pumunta pa rin sa palengke kahit na wala ng public transportation (May mga jeep pa rin naman daw pero walang bus na palabas ng Muntinlupa, kawawa yung mga kailangan pa rin pumasok sa trabaho). Wala daw kasi kakainin yung mga alaga niya, dagdag pa yung mga pets ng kapitbahay na inihabilin sa amin dahil nagpasya sila na mamalagi muna sa Nueva Vizcaya. Buti at may mask pa kami dito sa bahay.

Matagal pa ito, kapit lang sabi nga nila. Magreklamo tayo kung may hinaing tayo, magpasalamat kung may oportunidad na magtrabaho sa bahay, may iba-t ibang paraan tayo sa pag-cope sa nangyayari sa mundo, wag maging condescending at insensitive.

Till my next rant, yan muna ang ambag ko. Peace and Stay Fresh. #CQDiary

New Beginning


It’s been a while since my last blog, life happened, so much going on in my personal life so blogging has taken a back seat. But I just want to say that I am still here and I still have opinions on mundane things. Traffic has gotten worse but we commuters do not have a choice but to carry on and continue with our lives.
