Good morning my fellow readers!. Today, February 25, 2009, the Filipino people commemorates the 23rd anniversary of People Power Revolution (EDSA Revolution). With this, we give a toast to the man and the hero who helped Filipinos come out of their fear and take their war against oppression and dictatorship out in the streets, peacefully.
The message was clear: we are all Filipinos and the occurrence of a bloody military impact between the divided Armed Forces of the Philippines is never necessary, for the real enemy is embodied not in any of the camps but in the Presidential residence, the Malacañang palace.
It is indeed not long ago (February of 1986) when the Filipino people made history by making a stand. They boldly expressed their convictions against the tyranny of dictatorship, notwithstanding the danger facing them. They believed enough was enough. It was time to oust that oppressor who for so long had made a fool out of them.
Everything began when greed and power, as had been the case throughout human history, devoured the then president, Ferdinand Marcos. At first, he was a good president, a young and brilliant lawyer who never ceased to amaze even the experts in his field. He started enhancing the infrastructure of the Philippines by building roads and buildings and all the other primers necessary in an industrial country. Because of this, he was immediately re-elected to office. He began doing good things and was again re-elected. However, during those times, power and greed were eventually silting through his being. His popularity ratings gradually went down. People who used to support him started having hesitations (though not openly). Until the time when the people began saying wait a minute, he is not what he used to be, we need a new leader to guide us. As a result, on September of 1973, President Ferdinand Marcos declared Martial Law. The senate and the congress were abolished. The courts were under his influence. The media had been suppressed. The military had become the authority.
By the early 80's, the economy had crashed. The peso had devaluated from mere six pesos per dollar at the beginning of the Marcos term to almost 25 per dollar. The people suspected Marcos of stealing the Philippine money, and that there was only one way to end it, Marcos had to go.
Then came a senator with a capacity to lead the people. He was Benigno Aquino who, in one way or another, promised a better Philippines. Marcos feared him. Marcos realized that he would lead the people out of his grip. Aquino was becoming their new leader. In 1983, immediately after emerging from the door of his plane, Aquino was shot in the head, and instantaneously died. Of course, the people suspected Marcos of doing this but it is never proved.
Aquino's death then triggered the revolution. Enough is enough. It was time for Ferdinand Marcos to go. Then three years after the assassination, a mass of people gathered in the Epifanio de los Santos Avenue. Their immediate objective was to prevent the armed conflict between the AFP men loyal to the president and the AFP men under the minister of National Defense, Juan Ponce Enrile and the head of the Philippine Constabulary, General Fidel V. Ramos. The mass of people that gathered in EDSA, side by side, with rosaries and other sacramentals in their hands, offered the soldiers (those on the side of the president) of the advancing tanks peace by giving them flowers and rosaries and water. The message was clear: we are all Filipinos, and we need not fight each other. We are a nation of the same blood, of the same race. It is not each other we should fight. We should fight the one and true enemy of our land, the man who had cheated and deceived all of us, the man who is in Malacañang.
The EDSA Revolution is the first of its kind. No blood smeared in the streets, nobody was hurt. The oppressor was ousted and the people rejoiced. There was democracy once more. The Filipino people had made a stand and they stood firm by their belief. For them, this event will forever be in the history books and never will it die, for it embodies the true Filipino spirit alive in every individual Filipino.

Ang umibig ang pinakamasayang sitwasyon na maaaring maramdaman ng isang tao. Kung papanain ka ni kupido ay wala kang kawala! walang wala. Kahit sino sa ano mang aspeto, kahit nasa ano mang antas ka ng buhay ay mararanasan mo ito. Ngunit sa masayang sitwasyon g ito ay may isang tanong "paano kung ang napana lang ni kupido sa dalawang mag-kaibang seksuwalidad ay ang isang tao lamang?". Masyadong kumplikado ang sitwason, at maari kang masaktan depende na lamang sa iyo, kung ipaglalaban mo o kaya ipagtatapat ang nararamdaman mo sa isang taong mahal mo. Dapat handa ka sa magiging sagot nya OO man o hindi.
Masaya talaga umibig pero kalakip nito ay ang masalimuot na kabiguan, pwedeng maging happy ending pwede ring tragic ending. Pero ang sabi nila, pag-ibig din raw ang makakalunas sa isang mapait na karanasan ng kabiguan.
Love changes you the way you think, the way you decide, the way you act. You even go against your principle and beliefs in life. Loving doesn't always mean you'll be happy. Sometime all it provides you is pain and miser. Yet your blinded by strong emotions that you fail to see reality. Sometimes leting go is the only answer and it hurts like hell. But you will realize that love is so easy to get, so hard to let go, so easy to spell and so hard to define.

Linggo ng umaga ako'y nagising ng bandang 8:30 a.m. at ito na ang araw na pinakahihintay namin ni Seiyah. Dahil sa araw na ito ay magaganap ang isang pangarap na maka chat nami si marie kasama ang mga fans sa mariedigbyfan.multiply.com.
Umalis ako ng 9:30am kasama ang aking Ermat. Ako papuntang SM MALL OF ASIA at ang Ermat ko naman ay papuntang SM NORTH EDSA. Sumakay ako ng Bus diretso na ng MOA. Akala ko ay mahuhuli ako sa takdang oras ng aming pagkikita, biruin mo ay nauna pa ako. Hehe. Pagdating ko sa MOA ay dumiretso kagad ako sa CDR-KING para bumili ng USB FLASH DISK for my sisters project and for my personal use, I bought 2gb for her and 8gb for me. Pagkatapos ko bumili ay nagutom ako kaya naisipan kong kumain!. haha. Naglibot ako at naghanap ng murang makakainan at siyempre saan pa ang bagsak ko, sa Mcdonald's dahil sa kanilang 50.00- value meal (may rice chicken at drinks ka na). Natapos na ako kumain ay hindi pa rin dumadating si Seiyah hayz.. nasan na kaya siya (pagsasadula). Sa wakas naaninagan ko din siya na paparating, mga sampung metro ang layo niya sa akin. Tumayo ako at nilapitan siya, haha! dala pala nya ung LAPTOP nya. Naglibot kami kung saan meron dapat na WIFI ZONE, una naming nakita ang BURGER king pero offline wifi nila. So pumunta kami ng KRISPY KREME!. Pagpasok namin ay tanong kaagad kami kung okay ung WIFI nila, okay naman daw! so ayun umorder kami ng inaalok nyang LIMITED EDITION na TIN CAN with 6 Doughnuts. Naghanap kami ng place kung saan maganda pumwesto, kaso nga lang po dun sa magandang place! ay full na, so napunta kami sa isang maliit na mesa at kaharap ang aircon. Binuksan ang laptop at nag konek! ano ang password ng WIFI nila? "SHARE THE LOVE!". Pag konek ng internet ay nag sign in kaagad kami sa FORUM. Nagulat kami dahil madaming naka log in, umabot siguro sa more or less 20 persons, ayun! ang daming naghihintay kay MARIE!. Ilang sandali ay tumayo ako para tingnan kung wala ng nakaupo sa magandang puwesto. Yes! bakante na, kaya lumipat kami. After 15 minutes ay nawala ang connection! astig diba? so naghintay pa uli kami ng 15 minutes baka kasi bumalik! kaso nga lang hindi na.
Nag evacuate kami sa lugar ng KRISPY KREME at nag desisyon na mag rent nalang kami ng PC sa NETOPIA. Pag sign in naming dalawa ay madami pa ring tao sa FORUM! at naghihintay kay Marie!. After ilang minutes! may stranger name na nag log in, tapos sinabi nya na "I was late", Dun na kami nag ka idea na si marie digby ung name na un. Tapos tinuruan namin mag change ng name to M-DIzzle. Then start na ung Chatting!, I think it lasted 30 to 45 minutes ung stay nya sa FORUM. After nun tsaka ko naman nilagay ung bagong banner!. Galing! hindi ako makapaniwala na nangyari un!. Imagine?! si Marie Digby nasa Chat room. Tapos bago sila umalis, nag say hi muna si Naomi sa aming lahat. haha!.
After nun.. ayun! tapos na, I'm sure magkakaroon ng PART 2!!
