DAPAT TAMA by Michael V.
Dahil sa dulo, bawal ang kakamot-kamot
Sa katanungnang harap-harapang iaabot
Sino’ng pinili?
`Pag ang tinta ay humalik
Sa daliring siyang ginamit at nagturo
Ang nawala ay maibalik


Alam natin ang tama
Ba’t di natin ginagawa
Alang-alang sa’ting bayan,
Dapat tayong makiaalam.

Puro nalang reklamo
walang tunay na pagkilos
Laging atras-abante
Pudpod na’ng suwelas ng sapatos

Ilang beses nangako,Ilang beses napako
Ba’t di natin subukanna tulungan at umako
Bumahagi sa bigat na matagal na nating pasan
‘Pag tayo’y nagsama-sama, lahat ay malalampasan
Sa isip at sa salita
Lalong-lalo na sa gawa
Sama-sama nating itama ang mali
Nang ang bayan nati’y makabangon muli

May mas maayos na bukas para sa’ting mga anak
Unang hakbang ay piliin ang tamang nakatatak
Na pangalan sa balota, `wag tayong magpauto
Nasa ‘tin ang kapangyarihan ‘pag tayo ang kumibo

Nanggigigil mong itigil ang pagsisisi sa sutil
Na nasa puwestong ‘di ka na kilala kapag sinisingil
Sa lahat ng kanyang pangakong patagal nang patagal
Kung ‘di tayo kumbinsido, ‘wag na nating ihalal

Itama natin ang gabay, ‘wag na tayong magreklamo
Itaas ang kamay ng gusto ng pag-asenso
Balikat na magkaakbay, ‘di tayo susuko
Malalakas na boses, sabay-sabay mangako!




Welcome 2016

Another year has gone, good bye 2015 and hello 2016!

Last year I wasn’t with my family and I celebrated New Year’s eve at my boyfriend’s house. This time, I celebrated it with my family, too bad my other sister is in Caloocan and she can’t travel to Bulacan. Anyway, I prepare Macaroni Salad and a Carbonara. I did few searches before making my Carbonara with a twist. Usually the Carbonara toppings only include bacon, ham, parsley etc., I added Corned beef and MaLing and then cut into squares (I didn’t mix it with the Carbonara sauce).


I woke up early and worked until 19:00 my time, then I started preparing our food. We didn’t have a lot compared to last year, I’m broke because we’ve been fixing our house since last November. I’ve been waiting and I called my older sister so they can join us.

Before I forget, my youngest sister just gave birth last month! I thought it would be the same as my father’s birthday but she delivered afterwards.


We waited until the clock turned to 23:59… We were counting down, then we started yelling, “Happy New Year”. We celebrate our New Year while drinking and doing karaoke. Filipinos really really love karaoke, it’s like any of our events wouldn’t be complete without karaoke.

We all got drunk and they kept going. I can’t catch up to them and finally slept around 03:00.

Happy New Year everyone!

Hair Dye

Last last month, my sister-in-law and I performed a little experiment with my hair. We decided to dye it blonde at the top and red at the bottom. It was my first time using full bleach, and I’m not sure if everyone has the same experience but it hurts a lot, burning like bloody hell!

I had to wait for an hour to wash it off, and I felt like crying… I walked and walked around, hoping that clocks will tick tock so fast!

Oh that experience was so bad, it makes me not want to color my hair ever again…

I’m not sure if it was the medicine, but at the end I did survive and here is the result:


Next, we did another experiment, but this time – I told my sister-in-law not to use bleach on my head. Instead she used a 9% solution on my roots only, because my black hair is already showing up. She tried putting some green color on the top of the faded red, and we are expecting that it will be a bit lighter. In the end it turned out to be darker!

Here’s the result:


Harharhar *evil laugh* now I’m thinking to do it by myself. Maybe pink next time? 😛 Who knows!

Welcome 2015

Kind of a late update for the New Year, but it’s better to be late than never. As usual, nothing much is going on for the 1st month of 2015. Things started to get busy as soon as February starts. It was my first time I had a Prenuptial shoot with a couple; a Filipina and a Taiwanese man.

At first, I didn’t know what to do, I am so scared to ask them to go into specific poses because it was my first time. I created and offered them a package to also cover their civil wedding and reception. It was a simple wedding, and everything went well. I hope that they are satisfied with my shots and happy with the results.

Here are the sample photos I took during the prenuptial shoot:

Here’s the AVP:

I was supposed to only cover the photoshoot but since it was my first time, I also added some video clips.

That’s it for now! Don’t forget to visit my facebook page for updates: https://www.facebook.com/Thyrenes

League of Legends – My first MOBA game!

I’ve never been a fan of MOBA games until I learned about League of Legends. I started the game without any ideas, never having read of any reviews or guides.

I remember my older brother and nephew playing it last year. A few months later after my guild and I quit Forbidden Kingdom Online – an MMORPG – I heard that many members, including my boyfriend, are playing LoL (League of Legends). I had no idea on how to play it, they told me that it looks like DotA, however I had never played DotA before either.

I started playing in August of last year. After a month and half, I had my first PentaKill. Before the 3rd season ended, I did my provisionary and achieved the Silver Division. Sometimes playing, especially in PH servers, makes me stressed out. So many players will mess around if someone TT’s (trash talks) them, and others will intentionally feed other players by dying on purpose (this makes the enemy heroes stronger). So usually when it happens, most of us think they are kids playing in an Internet Cafe. You’ll read a message something like, “tulog na mga bata my pasok pa bukas” (go to sleep kids, you have school tomorrow), “noob” and more…

I’m so addicted with LoL and I wanted a Teemo Hat. Finally they are selling it at an unofficial event that is sponsored and hosted at UP Diliman. I went there with my boyfriend and we bought few t-shirts and of course, my teemo hat. I got them in November of last year.

In PH servers, usually players are playing on Summoner’s Rift > Normal Blind Pick > Ranked Solo/Duo. I heard players in other countries prefer ARAM. I tried it but I ended up waiting more than 30 minutes and still the game hadn’t started.

I’m still active in game and now Season 4 just ended. I’m currently at Platinum V and still enjoying the game. The only problem is, the graphics detail keep increasing and i dont know if my laptop will be able to keep up!

The Rhythm

It has taken so long for me to add something new. Actually, I really don’t know what to share anymore. It makes me feel like the sky gets darker each day. I might say it is perfect when people normally see it. I start questioning whenever I look up. I prefer not to be bothered by my problems and pretend that they aren’t there. Life is getting tougher as I age. I may be able to accomplish some things in my life, but I know for myself that it isn’t enough. I’m looking for something new;a new life, a new beginning.

It’s been a long time since I was with someone physically. I was in a long distance relationship for so long, ended not in failure but things didn’t work out how everyone wanted. When I fall in love, I start to lose interest in other activities. Well I guess you can say one of my worst emotions is loving too much. I’m not perfect and I truly admit that I have made mistakes.

I know that each of us have different views when it comes to relationships. At my age, 26, I feel more drawn toliving with someone, building a family. I honestly don’t prefer being in a dating situation but It’s what I have right now. It’s not because we’re not ready to live together but more because he doesn’t feel his situation is stable. Most of my entire life the situation has been unstable, the answer is to know how to handle circumstances properly.

For my BF: I know one day you’ll be able to read this, I’m sorry if this will hurt you emotionally, I’m just being completely honestabout what I feel. And don’t get me wrong, I love you, I truly do!

There’s a lot of questions in my mind, like something is tightening in my head. It is my first time that I’ve been in a relationship where we never speak about the future. It only happens if I ask but it’s the same answer every time. It seems talking about the future is off-limits or it makes me feel like I am running around in a circle. I guess some people will accept that it’s normal to not have a conversation about it, but it’s important to me. I never thought about it when I was a teenager, I felt like my boyfriend is not my future husband, so we just went with life’s flow. Now, it’s different, every second counts. There’s a saying “You’ll never know if you’ll succeed if you don’t try”. That’s why I no longer believe in dating or long-term relationships. Lastly,I believe that in a relationship, you won’t truly know each other’s attitude unless you are both living under the same roof. Sigh! I’m thinking too much. I don’t really know what’s going on, makes me feel like I don’t know myself anymore.

How to get an Occupational Permit in the Philippines?

Hi everyone! It’s very overwhelming for me that you guys keep visiting my blog, especially my entry about “How to get a mayor’s permit” and “how to get a student license”. I tried my best to reply to all of your inquiries via email. Please make sure that you include a valid email when commenting on any of my posts (just in case your comment warrants a reply). Also, please remember that I do not work for the government; all of my posts are based on my personal experiences.

There are a lot of inquiries on how to get an Occupational Permit. I guess it is time to tackle the difference between a Mayor’s (Business) Permit and an Occupational Permit.

As of today, workers are required to get an Occupational permit from city hall – based on which city they’re planning to work. All you have to do is go the BPLO (Business Permit and Licensing Office) in the city hall you choose and ask for an application form for an Occupational Permit.

Below is an example image of the application form:

Occupational Permit Example

You will need the following details to complete the application form:

  • Police clearance paperwork
  • Medical certificate number
  • Occupational tax info
  • Mayor’s permit fee

I’ve never tried this before and I lack the information regarding the Occupational tax and mayor’s permit fees. But I think the BPLO in charge will take care of it. (Don’t worry; I will clarify this as soon as I visit our city hall again)
