The Partners

 Five years after graduation, these are the faces of the business partners 
SHOP4Less Online Trading Services.

"Hindi lungkot o takot ang mahirap sa pag-iisa kundi ang pagtanggap na sa bilyon-bilyong tao sa mundo, wala man lang nakipaglaban upang makasama ka."

It's not loneliness or fear that's tough to face when alone, but in acknowledging that of the billions of people in this planet, nobody fought just to be with you.

[TRAILER] The Vampire Diaries NEW SEASON 3 “The Year of the Original”

Based on novels of the same name, Vampire Diaries follows Elena, a young heroine, who is the object of passion for two vampire brothers. Four months after the tragic car accident that killed their parents, 17-year-old Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev, DeGrassi: The Next Generation) and her 15-year-old brother, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen, Everwood) are still trying to cope with their grief and move on with their lives. Elena has always been the star student; beautiful, popular and involved with school and friends, but now she finds herself struggling to hide her sadness from the world. As the school year begins, Elena and her friends are fascinated by a handsome and mysterious new student, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley, Army Wives). Stefan and Elena are immediately drawn to one another, and Elena has no way of knowing that Stefan is a centuries-old vampire, struggling to live peacefully among humans, while his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder, Lost) is the embodiment of vampire violence and brutality. Now these two vampire brothers - one good, one evil - are at war for Elena's soul and for the souls of her friends, family and all the residents of the small town of Mystic Falls, Virginia.

Things just happen, things that we may never understand but we just have to believe that it's for the best even if it doesn't always seem that way.

As for me, it was not a happy ending but at least I knew and understood why it happened that way.

Ano namang mapapala mo kakaisip sa nakaraan at sa mga pwede pang mangyari? Wala ka naman sigurong super powers para maibalik ang nakalipas na. Dapat matuto kang pahalagahan ang mga nangyayari sayo sa kasalukuyan. Isipin mo yung ngayon. I-enjoy mo lang ang buhay. Wag kang emo. Hindi ka talaga magiging masaya kung di mo tutulungan ang sarili mo. Natural lang na makaramdam ng lungkot paminsan-minsan pero ang pagiging miserable? Wag kang hibang choice mo yan.
What will you get from thinking about the past and what should have happened? You don't even have superpowers to bring back the past. You just need to appreciate the things that are happening at present. Think of the now. Enjoy your life. Don't be emo. You really will not be happy if you won't help yourself. It's natural to feel sad every now and then but to be miserable? Don't be crazy, that's your choice.

HINILAWOD: Tales From the Mouth of the Halawod River

Discover the Epic

visit the official website
Hinilawod is one of the many pieces of oral literature passed from one generation to the next, changed and morphed by the mananalaysay (storyteller) to one degree or another as he told it to his audience.

Hinilawod was first discovered “by accident” in 1955, when F. Landa Jocano, Filipino anthropologist became interested in native folklore. He traveled the hinterlands of his home province, Panay, with two colleagues collecting folk songs, stories, and riddles. It was during one of those trips to the upland barrios of Lambunao, Maasin, Janiuay, and Calinog in Iloilo that his attention was called to a long and popular tale called Hinilawod. Portions of the story were sung to him and his colleague by an old man called Ulang Udig.

Returning the following year, together with a radio technician from Central Philippine University, he then recorded a portion of the story on tape in 1956.

However, when he returned, in 1957 to make a recording of the complete story, Ulang Udig refused to cooperate . Weeks later, he was introduced to a mountain singer named Hugan-an, who, after much cajoling, allowed herself to be tape recorded as she recounted both her story and the Hinilawod story. It took three weeks to complete the recording of the 30 hour epic poem.

A concise version of the story of Hinilawod can be found in the book, Philippine Mythology, authored by the Filipino anthropologist, Dr. F. Landa Jocano.

The other books of F. Landa Jocano are as follows:
Epic of Labaw Donggon (1965)
Outline of Philippine Mythology (1969)
The Adventures of Humadapnon, Tarangban I (2000)
The Adventures of Humadapnon, Tarangban II (2011)
