...Makalibog na Spirits!!!


With months of waiting and practice, we have finally stepped on the greens of Alabang Country Club for Manila Spirits International Tournament 2006.

The event is one of the most talked amongst Ultimate Players in and out of the country. With this year’s event, Ultimate STD from Davao City is the first provincial team to compete against seasoned Manila and International Teams.

The youngest of all, formally established on summer of 2006, Ultimate STD is composed of Davaoeños Aldrin (yup, Ako), Bads, Bayani, Bing, Ceasar, Francis, Ipe, Jenny, Luan, Maean, Mariano, Pyk and Tish and Manileños Anne, Paolo, Carlson, Cary, Chris and Joy.

It was really fun playing against teams among our Pool. Teams like SPO1, TODA, Boracay Dragons, HongKong Junks, Jogadores and K3. We may only have won 1 game but it was really fun being with the teams on the field. We have played the best as we can and we’re just glad that they appreciated our effort (Not bad for newbies). We exchanged handshakes and smiles … And even HongKong Junks sang for us. We have created friendships and it was truly great to meet them all.

Until the next Spirits…Kinsay Nalibog?! STD!!!

...last minutes

I was about to do my share for the cooperative’s business planning on Saturday when I was plummeted with 3 new sets of computer. I don’t have any other choice but to install and deliver. I think I just have to do things later in the evening and email my report since I’ll be in Manila Spirits ’06 on the weekend.

Manila Spirits ’06 is very soon. I’m just excited. The team is ready and we hope to have fun. Please God help us.

...through the never

I don’t know but I feel so exhausted for the past weeks. I had so much work and I hope I could get all the energy and strength for Manila Spirits ’06 on weekend.

I haven’t prepared my things yet and I just have to do it tonight.

Anyway, I need more sleep.

Iron Maiden Vs. True Faith

While I was watching Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey, Medwin Marfil of True Faith looks like Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden.

*haha. I wonder…How would Medwin sing “Number of the Beast”? Or Bruce sings “Perfect”? *hehe

...excited to Manila Spirits '06

I finally got my plane ticket to Manila and back. Its 10 days before Manila Spirits ’06 and everyone in the team are excited.

We’ll have a meeting tonight and we hope to get into things.

*excited

my thing on Metal: A Headbanger's Journey

I now have my copy of Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey. It’s a documentary by Sam Dunn, an anthropologist and a metal fan. He traced the origins, the roots and all the things that would answer all the doubts about Metal.

He had interviews with some of the world’s Metal artists. My favorite would be with Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson, Black Sabbath’s Tommy Iommi, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider and Ronnie James Dio(Yeah! He’s the real man behind Rock’s Devil’s Horns \m/). And with an interview with Mayhem, I really find those geeks funny. (Yeah! They’re “Satanists” but I never had the chill when they did all those “Anti-Christ, Fu*k whatever, Anti-Establishment” rants.)

Well, the thing about Metal music is that, it has never exhausted people talking about it. Largely misinterpreted with Satanism, majority of it has nothing to do with all the killings and suicide that society has been trying to associate with. Yeah! There are devils, monsters, pentagrams and the Devil’s horns but that’s the way Metal is. As Kerry King of Slayer had said, He likes to take potshots at religion which is the biggest brainwashing thing.

Taking those words from him, I now understand why they love to negate the “norms”…the norm that has been defined by a setup of a grand conspiracy. I do not have the position to get into the monopoly of the righteous, but I also had my experience of why all the hate that they have for “religion”.

In my case, I used to be the rebel against the “big penguins” who just love to smack rulers at our hands and heads when we do wrong… (I was in kindergarten when I tried to color Mother Mary’s skin with orange since I only have an 8 color crayola set with orange, green and yellow left… we were even forced to sleep one afternoon with a reason that God would be angry if we won’t). I had this hate when I see them in corridors, visualizing myself, firing guns at them. Even the priests at my grade school days who just love to have “business” instead of giving service to the people in their flock. Just like in the Jose Rizal’s “Noli Me Tangere” and “El Filibusterismo”, the irrational things being laid down by the people of the church just to get into their advantage. (I wonder, could Jose Rizal be in a Metal Band if he’s alive today?)

With all of these, I have my share of why I love metal… the lyrics and the energy speaks to me on a personal level. It’s like me shouting at those “enemies” with style. I just love to negate those people who use their position in the society for their advantage… getting all the convenience that they could for themselves.

I’m a practical Catholic and I believe in God. I love Metal music and just like any Metal fan, I don’t really give a damn about people defining me to something they themselves can only comprehend.

my new cleats



Finally, I have bought myself another pair of cleats. And this time, its color white. I just have to get another pair for my first pair would soon be retiring if I’ll use it all the time. At least, my first pair would be having its own substitute. Just in time for Manila Spirits '06

Thank you Lord.

time out

*sigh. I went home at about 4:30 in the morning. I had my time with Gold, drinking all the booze that we could get. Of course, we had the always present “Red Horse” and some Jäger

At least, I was able to spend my time without being depressed.

...still in the office

As much as I want to be “Irie”, I’m still not feeling good. I feel so empty and I don’t feel like going home early.

I’m still in the office, trying to get into something that might burn some time. I want to forget about things (yeah…the nothingness)

*sigh…Oh please God help me.

...grrrrrrrrr

I feel so bad…What’s the point of me going to her birthday party?

After all the things they’ve said about me, she’s inviting me to be there. Is she trying to play with my emotion?

...neck pain

My neck still hurts and I just can’t do my usual. I had this since Saturday evening and getting through this was not really fun. I have to be in this “Batman-Michael Keaton” thing as I try to get through my things.

Anyway, I have to get some medication as I haven’t been in practice for so long. Manila Spirts ’06 is coming soon and I hope to be in my most normal form.

…of egos and principles

For nights, I’ve been thinking about getting into situations like I am having now. I just can’t believe how I got misunderstood by a person I respect.

Talk about comprehension or anything for that to equate things in between. I don’t have to bad-mouth anybody just to satisfy my ego. I’m just being nice to express my concern on a certain thing. Oh well, maybe it’s unsolicited but I just want something for her to move ahead…something that will make her better.

*sigh. But things went into the void. I was misunderstood…to the point that I have to stand for what I believe. I have to get my sanity back into me. I have to fill my nothingness.

Of course, I know what’s rude and being frank but being opinionated (Yeah, somebody has to tell the ugly truth) has its own price. And worse, the person who used to be ideal in my eyes tends to talk things that are not on her reach. Craps had been rolling from her mouth… like gossips burning from her tongue.

Being in this world that’s been unfair from the start, I tried to give without asking. Satisfying egos and trying to confirm the person that I wanted to be is a struggle that I’ve been fighting. Compromising and getting into the “order” is something that we’ve all been… just to have that “peace” in our lives.

But when principles are starting to feel the itch of being scratched, I just have to battle it all for my sanity. It’s a hard one but I just have to follow my instincts..it usually takes me home.

zooming the way

I don’t know but I spent my last 48 hours doing all the things for the dead and drinking.

After our visit to our grandparents’ tomb at Norala, South Cotabato, we went home at about 7 pm yesterday for a “pit stop”. I got a text from Gold and decided to consume my Tequila with her. It was really fun drinking with her mother getting the first shot. I just can’t imagine how we had it all. I began to get drunk halfway and all I could do was smile and get “irie” with everything.

I went home at about 5:30 am and prepared for the day.

*sigh. I just have to get more sleep.
