of bad news and good news

closed doors

Was at my mom's hometown for the weekend. My uncle was running for mayor. So everyone flew up to rally and support his campaign. He's the outgoing Vice Mayor. Among the candidates, he's the only one with experience in office. And a clean, credible, respectable background. Well, as the circle of hell we call politics would have it, voters were conned, bribed and punched sideways. It's a sad thing that he lost. It's very disappointing. How can you really rise above this kind of corruption, when the majority of the people don't know any better. Or everyone's just scared shitless. Doesn't bring us closer to a "better place" anyhow.

Lost. Well one thing for sure... I am NEVER voting again.

But, that aside, the only thing that kept me looking at the brighter side was that I had my cute little plastic camera along for the trip. And the much brighter side of it was that the pictures came out so beautifully! Furthermore, I learned from the seller of the ever-so-awaited Taxona that the camera will take only 2 weeks of shipping. Yey! So I will be happy next week!

I sure hope there are no delays. I need good news now.

    I didn't vote and probably won't ever. Hehe.

    Shoot away instead and be happy. )

    I voted in Pampanga. This mayoralty candidate we were rooting for didn't stand a chance against the power of the incumbent. His clean and credible record was lost and buried in the money and promises offered by the incumbent mayor to the folks. It's sad that some teachers in this province were even the ones who led the demolition job against the worthy candidate. Gawin ba namang scholars ang anak nila kahit 75 ang grade.

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

soundtrack of the moment
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
