Goodbye, Dolphy


Rodolfo Vera Quizon, more popularly known as Dolphy, passed away yesterday at around 8:34PM in Makati Medical Center due to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. He is 83 years old.

Dolphy is known in the Philippines as the King of Comedy. He began acting in 1946 in the movie Dugo at Bayan. He was able to made almost two hundred movies. His most memorable portrayals were Jack & Jill, Facifica Falayfay, John en Marsha, Home Along da Riles and Markova. His last movie, Father Jejemon, was shown in 2010.

My generation practically grew up watching Home Along da Riles. It is a story about a striving single father who lives along a railway together with his children. It taught us that despite his family's circumstances, for as long as there is love and unity among them, they will surpass any problem. He portrayed the character as a responsible father who always see the positive side of things.

His comedic style is yet to be reached, if not surpassed, by current comedians. To the hearts of the Filipinos, regardless of their religious beliefs, age, educational attainment and social status, he is the true National Artist.

Rest in peace, Dolphy. Your antics will be missed.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.

To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?
