Philippine Independence

Posted in lifestyle, others, views on June 14, 2010 by rebelhunt

Let’s be real here, most Filipinos today don’t even know the value of Independence day anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I’m one of those people who don’t think much about Independence day as well, not until this Independence weekend. I was spending the weekend at the condo of one of my bandmates and, while surfing through the channels on the television came across the movie Jose Rizal on GMA 7. It starred Cesar Montano and a wide array of famous Filipino celebrities.

I never really enjoyed home grown movies but I found myself stuck and watching the story of Philippines’ National Hero. It was really weird because I was watching what I used to sleep on during my high school days. History was never one of my favorite subjects.

For the first time I guess, I saw the oppression we went through during the time of the Spaniards. It was also a treat to see Crisostomo Ibarra / Simoun come to life thanks to actor Joel Torre who did the character justice. There I saw the passion and frustrations of Jose Rizal while fighting to free us from the grips of the Spaniards.

It’s a shame that most, if not all Filipinos have forgotten what our forefathers did to get our Independence. Now I call on all Filipinos to once again fight for Independence, not from foreign oppression, not from outside threats, but Independence from our corrupt and greedy government officials. Too long have our country been in the jaws of leaders who only think of their welfare.

Too long have these officials enjoyed the good life at our expense. For us to be truly free, we need to change the system to a system that works not only for those who hold power, but for everyone. Let’s make our Independence day mean something again.

That annoying thing called Love……

Posted in lifestyle, others, views with tags , , on July 15, 2009 by rebelhunt

It’s funny… I have to admit that even though I try to avoid it I keep searching for it at the same time. Now that it’s here I’m not really sure what I should be doing because it’s driving me insane. What am I talking about? I’m talking about LOVE of course. I consider myself very unlucky when it comes to love that’s why I try to avoid it as much as possible because I almost always end up as a torn up, love struck idiot by the gutter and it’s not one of the best feelings believe me. However I found myself at the throws of love’s arms once again when I met this girl a few weeks back. I don’t know if there’s such a thing as love at first sight but I was totally taken when I glanced in her eyes.

On the subject of laziness

Posted in lifestyle, views on August 27, 2008 by rebelhunt

“I’m feeling so lazy today!”  That’s how we usually start our day on a normal work week.  Well, let’s face it, everyone feels lazy now and then, some feels lazier than some but still lazy nonetheless.  I was having a little chat with one of my officemates during our break with regards to laziness and what would be the best jobs for lazy people.  Now you don’t have to take everything here seriously, since our discussion was to kill time and was purely nonsense.  Anyway, going back to the subject of laziness, we thought of different jobs, most of them house based work.  But I was thinking that home based work won’t really work for someone who’s lazy.  Since lazy people just tend to lie around, face the boob tube for the whole day, I thought that the perfect job for lazy people would be to test out newly built homes.

What I mean by test is, they get to sleep, pig out and do everything what lazy people usual do, and that’s to stay home the whole day and do nothing but waste their time.  My friend was nodding in agreement adding that a report should be made regarding the condition of the house and what needs to be added or removed.  I know a lot what I’m saying here doesn’t make a lot of freaking sense, but this is my blog and I figure I get to say whatever I want to, and if you’ve read my post up to this point it’s either you’re interested in what I have to say, or just have nothing else to do. 🙂

Merry Xmas to the people at the NBI

Posted in others, views with tags , on November 26, 2007 by rebelhunt

Well, it’s that time of the year again when all of us start with our Christmas list, thinking of what to buy for who. Indeed, Xmas is in the air, everyone is practically into it including our favorite government department, the NBI. Our company and the NBI have had quite a history together, coz’ whenever the NBI needs the budget, they come here and raid our office for no apparent reason.

Just last Friday, Nov 23, 2007 we had another unexpected visit from our friends. The procedure was the usual, them coming in here and telling us not to turn our PC’s off and to quietly step out of our workstations. As usual they were being their brash, “tough man” image, thinking that they could intimidate us. Newsflash for all you @$$holes in the NBI, that style only works in the movies, and you’re  just making your lower than scum image even worse.

Now, I’m not really sure if they had a warrant with them at that time, but come on now they really didn’t have to be such jerks if they wanted to check our computers. If they expect some respect from us, then it would only be appropriate that they treat us with respect as well. But that wasn’t the case, they went in here with their he-man attitude ordering everyone around like they were running the place. Hey, it was quite clear that all they wanted was a little mucho dinero for their Xmas shopping.

C’mon guys, the image of our government is bad enough! All you beer bellied lard heads are proving that money comes above everything? Don’t you people have any shame? But then again maybe you don’t. Now I’m sure the people at the NBI will look for some stupid reason to justify their actions, they always do, and the sad part is that they get away with it. It’s sad to imagine that this is what our country has become, and no one is doing a God damn thing about it.

Well to the NBI, who is busy doing a lot of things except their duties, have yourselves a Merry Xmas.

What is it with these people?

Just last night before going home, me and a friend was waiting for a cab ride, since it was lightly raining and I didn’t feel like taking the bus.  Another thing, it was late and I had to get some rest, so I thought that taking a cab would be the best option.  I guess I was wrong, the cabs that we were hailing were either not taking customers, or wanted to charge us extra for the trip.

What the hell?!  First and foremost, they’re drivers, it’s their job to take in passengers no matter where the hell they want to go.  Next is, why in the world would they charge extra? I mean, I understand that they’re having money problems, but hey who isn’t having money problems right now?  So, with my middle finger flashing I told most of those drivers to bite me, and slammed the door in their faces.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against drivers, it’s asshole drivers I hate.  Hey, if money was coming out of my butt, then I would’ve gladly paid for the extra charge; but that doesn’t happen.  When I finally got a ride, I was blowing my head off, and asking the driver why some if not most of them would ask for extra charge.  He told me it was because of the rising prices in petroleum products.  He also told me that because of this, the money that they get in one day is not enough.  Ok, I can understand that part, but like I said, we’re all having money problems, and duping people to pay more is not the way to solve that problem.

It’s that kind of thinking that really pisses me off, you know like: ” I don’t have cash, let’s see who if I can con someone today.”  I don’t want to sound to political or anything, but don’t you think that’s one the reasons why our country isn’t going anywhere?  Ho hum, it’s a fact of life I guess, but it’s pretty sad though.
