No (Wo)Man is an Island!

People find it weird when I tell them that I have been living alone for the past couple of years. The usual questions they throw at me are "Bakit?", "Asan mga magulang mo?" and the usual  "Di ka ba nalulungkot/natatakot?".

"Bakit?" Ang lagi kong sagot sa tanong na to "Bakit hindi?!?!". I know that it is not usual for Filipinos to live away from home but sometimes we need to step out of our comfort zones in order to learn. Nung umalis ako ng bahay, wala akong kagamit gamit. All I had were my clothes and my shoes! Hehe! So the first thing I did was to buy the "essentials". Syempre wala naman akong gaanong pera, so inisip ko kung ano ang kakailanganin ko, yun muna ang bibilhin ko. Can you guess kung ano unang binili ko? TV? Nope! Bed? Nope! Radio? Nope! Ref? Nope, wala nga akong pera noh!

Rice cooker!!!!!  Why rice cooker? Because I can't live without eating rice in a day! The people who know me can attest to this, hehe. Eh kaso ndi ako marunong magsaing ng kanin kaya rice cooker una ko binili. Aside from rice cooker, the next thing I bought was a mattress. Ako ang taong ndi maarte, kung ano ang meron, yun lang ang pagkakasyahen. Eh wala nga akong pera nun (pati naman ngayon, hehe) so ndi ako makabili pa ng bed. And take note, ndi siya makapal na mattress. Sakto lang para comfortable yung sleep. Wala akong refrigerator and TV back then but I had this portable dvd na may lcd, so yun lang ang source of entertainment ko day in and day out. Porn DVD all day! Dun ko nakilala si Peter North at Maria Ozawa. Hehe! Sila ang mga kasama ko nung panahong nagsisimula pa lang ako. Hahaha!


My breakfast this morning: Pancit Canton and SMB. LOL!

"Asan mga magulang mo?" Nandyan lang sila. Pag wala akong makain sa bahay ko, nakikikaen ako sa kanila. Hehe! Nothing beats my mom's (and my dad's) cooking! Everytime I visit them, laging masarap ulam nila! Buti pa sila. LOL!

"Di ka ba nalulungkot/natatakot?" Natatakot. Ndi ako takot sa multo. Takot ako sa magnanakaw! Yun lang ang downside ng mag-isa. May guard nga dito kaso wala namang kwenta. Nalulungkot? Minsan nalulungkot ako. Especially when it's raining. Syempre, perfect time yun para mag senti! Hehe. Pero lately, ndi nako masyado nalulungkot. Bakit? Uhmmm, sakin nalang yun. LOL.

Bakit ako nakajacket sa bahay? Malamig kase ang buga ng electric fan ko! LOL

At ang pinakanakakainis na tanong sa lahat - "Bakit kasi ndi ka pa mag-asawa para ndi ka nag-iisa?" Excusssse me, at kelan pa naging sagot sa kalungkutan ang pag-aasawa? Ndi porke mag-isa ka, malungkot ka na! Okay naman ako sa kung anong meron ako now.  I want to marry for the right reasons. Yes, cheezy! =D Darating rin ako dyan, relaks lang. Kung ako nga ndi pa nape-pressure eh, kayo pa. LOL!

So ano ang point ng blog kong to, wala lang. Wala lang akong masulat. Epekto ata to ng isang latang San Mig Light. Hehe. Good Morninggggggg!

Have a great weekend ahead!

I lived alone for maybe 5 years (give or take). I really loved it. Adjustment nga ngayon now that I am living with someone. Downside lang talaga ng living alone is when you get sick. I remember going to mercury when I was running a very high fever. Buti na lang, the people gave way (long lines). I had nothing to eat but instant noodles for two days.

-=K=- said...

Unni - natawa naman ako sayo sa magasawa ka ULIT, lol! Sa tabe tabe lang yang jacket and headband. :D Thanks for adding me in your blogroll. Have a great weekend too! :)

-=K=- said...

Double D - Onga, I remember your Mercury story. Hehe. Onga, medyo mahirap rin pag mag-isa tapos may sakit ka. I recently got sick, buti nalang may magandang loob na dumalaw at may dalang take out for two. Kundi nudels at pancit canton rin abot ko, haha!

Jepoy said...

Khantotantra - depende sa klase ng sayang hanap mo. Hehe. Mahirap pero may sense of fulfillment. Kaya na yan ng buto (at ipin) mo! :)

Ex Jason said...

Gagayahin ko yung breakfast mo bukas na bukas din.

*Mejo* nakaka relate ako sayo. I've been living away from my parents ever since I was 13, but I wasn't exactly alone. I stayed in a HS dorm for four years, then a college dorm for a year. Since then I have moved to several apartments with different sets of friends.

Nakakatuwa nga mabuhay nang walang ibang inaasahan. Iba yung pakiramdam na self-sufficient ka. Pwede mo gawin kahit ano gusto mo. Aabot ka nga lang talaga sa mga panahon ng tag gutom.

I had a phase like yours years ago but it was more like a journey of finding myself.

I needed to know who I really am.

Sadly, in that journey, the major downside was that I was being hunted down by the Local Police. Lol!

Some of us will always live alone, because it is in the nature of our being. at times the solitude becomes so loud as to be deafening. and the darkness grows so stifling it deadens the soul.

but sometimes something so unexpected and unusual arrives that breaks the curse, even if only for a while. a rare gift to be grateful for. awakening. discovery. youth. sunlight. passion. laughter.

The gift, even when gone, will always be treasured as solitude and darkness return to claim their place.

nunca olvidaré.
