CodingCereal Home Page Redesigned

Posted on

Finally, I was able to upgrade codingcereal.com to wordpress 3.0 and redesigned the layout of home page of my web development blog.

I love how programmer friendly the latest version of wordpress. 🙂

Ang Aking Mga Kayamanan

Posted on Updated on

Taon-taon bago ang aking kaarawan, nakasanayan ko ng halughugin ang baul ng aking kayamanan. Hindi nga lang siya gawa sa kahoy kundi sa plastic dahil isa syang Orocan box.

Ang aking mga tula at iba pang katha ang aking itinuturing na kayamanan. Mga akdang sumasalamin sa aking makulay na buhay bilang isang mag-aaral. Mula sa kuwento ng pakikipagpaligsahan sa buhay, sa unang pag-ibig at mga pagsubok sa pamilya at pagkakaibigan. Masalimuot man o masaya, ang sarap magbaliktanaw.

Nakakatawa. Nakakaiyak. Ano man ang maramdaman habang binabasa ang aking mga “Freedom Notebook”, tiyak na may kurot sa aking puso ang bawat pangyayaring aking naisulat. Mga aral sa buhay na sadyang humubog sa aking pagkatao.

Hindi ko tuloy maalis sa aking isipan ang isang matagal ng pangarap ang magkaroon ng isang aklat at mailathala ang aking mga kayamanan. Ilang beses ko ng sinubukan iayos ang mga ito ngunit di ko matapos-tapos dahil araw-araw may mga bagong kwentong nais kong maidagdag.

Ang aking napagtanto, naging masaya at makulay ang aking buhay. Marami mang pagsubok ang lumipas at aking dinanas, lahat naman sila ay aking nalagpasan. Ano man ang hirap na dumaan, nanatili ako ng matatag at masaya.

Maraming bagay ang hinding-hindi ko malilimutan ngunit dapat kong tanggapin at harapin upang ako’y makausad palayo at maipagpatuloy ang buhay.

Masarap mangarap. Masarap maging masaya. Kung hindi dahil sa mga bagyong dumaan sa aking buhay, hindi ako matututong mangarap at hindi ko malalaman ang kahulugan ng pagiging maligaya.

Bagyong Basyang

Posted on

It’s an odd feeling experiencing Bagyong Basyang for it’s the first typhoon we had in our new place. In our old place, you could feel the walls shaking as the harsh winds try to tear down our house. But last night was different, I am in a safe place where sturdy walls surround me.

The lights went out before midnight thus everyone here wasn’t able to work. Thankfully, Meli gave us mechanical flash lights that don’t use battery. We used that as our emergency light, placed it by the stairs pointing to the ceiling thus  almost the whole living room and dining was lighted.

We chatted then eat then tried to watch a movie then eat again until there is nothing else to do. By three in the morning, we all went to sleep.

The electricity were back before lunch. Thankfully it was back now so we could cram back to tons of work we missed last night.

Stay safe.

The 25 Cards

Posted on

My 25th birthday is getting near. As much as I don’t want to think about it, it still bothers and excites me.

I got this simple wish but I have a doubt I could get it. It’s really feasible but I wonder who would help me make it come true.

What I wish for my birthday? 25 birthday cards or letters. Hand given or snail mailed doesn’t matter for as long as i receive it on or before my birthday. Haha! Too much fantasy.

I don’t want anything extravagant. I am imagining myself sitting outside, watching the birds chirping as I sip my hot choco and enjoying a tuna sandwich 😀

In two weeks time, I’ll be celebrating the two and a half decades of my existence. Right now, I’m nervous of what is or are ahead of me. It’s a mixed emotion. All I want is for it to be simple and I want to celebrate it with myself. 🙂
