About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Laking tuwa ng magulang mo

Noong isilang ka sa mundong ito
Laking tuwa ng magulang mo
At ang kamay nila ang iyong ilaw
At ang nanay at tatay mo'y
Di malaman ang gagawin
Minamasdan pati pagtulog mo
At sa gabi'y napupuyat ang iyong nanay
Sa pagtimpla ng gatas mo
At sa umaga nama'y kalong ka
Ng iyong amang tuwang-tuwa sa iyo
Ngayon nga ay malaki ka na
Nais mo'y maging malaya
Di man sila payag
Walang magagawa
Ikaw nga ay biglang nagbago
Naging matigas ang iyong ulo
At ang payo nila'y sinuway mo
Di mo man lang inisip na
Ang kanilang ginagawa'y para sa iyo
Pagkat ang nais mo'y
Masunod ang layaw mo
Di mo sila pinapansin
Nagdaan pa ang mga araw
At ang landas mo'y naligaw
Ikaw ay nalulong sa masamang bisyo
At ang una mong nilapitan
Ang iyong inang lumuluha
At ang tanong,"anak, ba't ka nagkaganyan"
At ang iyong mata'y biglang lumuha ng di mo napapansin
Nagsisisi at sa isip mo'y
Nalaman mong ika'y nagkamali
When you were born into this world
Your mom and dad saw a dream fulfilled
Dream come true
The answer to their prayers
You were to them a special child
Gave 'em joy every time you smiled
Each time you cried
They're at your side to care
Child, you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you live
How many seasons came and went
So many years have now been spent
For time ran fast
And now at last you're strong
Now what has gotten over you
You seem to hate your parents too
Do speak out your mind
Why do you find them wrong
Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you live
And now your path has gone astray
Child you ain't sure what to do or say
You're so alone
No friends are on your side
And child you now break down in tears
Let them drive away your fears
Where must you go
Their arms stay open wide
Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you live
Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you live
~ Anak/Child by Freddie Aguilar


My son is going to be three years old soon. I got him when he was only two months old. Yes, he is adopted and he is very special.

When I got him, his name was baby but I named him Al E Baba, mainly because he was very intelligent like Albert Einstein and he was very black like Ba Ba Black Sheep.

He is very intelligent is just full of unconditional love, the amount of love he gives out is as much as as my best friend, God.

Yah, it seems God created certain beings just to be so filled with love that there is just so much abundance of it.

I have always loved the song above, but unlike the child in the song above, Al E is very grateful and we are very grateful to have him.

My son unfortunately will not live as long as me. I am now 42 going on 43 and it would be a wonderful thing from God if my son lived half that age.

But one thing I know is that he will have a fantastic life, with me and wifey.

He will always be our first and currently only son.

And as much as he loves me, I love him.

He has also been writing a blog, although not as often as me.

He also has a Facebook page which he has unfortunately not updated in a long time.

If you already do not have a clue who my son is, check out his blog by clicking any of the various links that I have splattered on this blog posting. He does not write that often but do check out his blog sometime.

Al E my son, my furry little boy, I love you and I thank you. I am sorry and Please forgive me for anything.

Take care and be well.

You really had me going there. I just had to click the link to find out why you would outlive your son. I was feeling very sad until Al E Baba's link appeared.
