Doodles on the Walls

We break the rules, we get some fun
You and me against everyone
Delighted mess, that’s why they say
If only we could just stay

Forever–on the four plain walls of school
The only place that we’re both cool
But students graduate– we left the building
What’s left are memories, and such longing

Where are you, partner in crime?
Let’s meet, it has been a long time
I can’t take you out of my head
Can’t I just visit you instead?

I miss our doodles on the bathroom walls
I miss the secret writings on the halls
But it’s you whom I miss the most
Please come back, even as a ghost.

Be kind to Bus Drivers

Everyday, I have to endure a 2-hour bus ride to get home.

Bus rides are monotonous at best. Everyday, there’s TV playing in the background, usually it’s the News or a Teleserye (Soap Operas). Bus is pretty hot because the bus’ crowded. Bus conductor busy handing out tickets. Some toddler crying in the front. Everyone’s tired.

But one night, something unusual happened.

What to do during an MRT Breakdown

In the Philippines, specifically in Metro Manila, MRT is everything. Since EDSA is always on heavy-traffic mode, we resort on riding an MRT. It’s “faster” and “cooler” compared to buses, and more affordable than FXs and taxis.

But along with the “advantages” of being an MRT rider, you’ll have to be prepared when sht happens. These trains were operating since 1999 and no major revamps were made. At this point, MRT is like a lolo (grandpa) that’s already having illnesses here and there, but still keeps working because of his grandchildren (aka us).

With that, it’s obvious that breakdowns and delays are going to happen. But during rush hour? That’s just full nightmare realness.
