blood relations

you never ceases to be a brother, a sister or a son or a daughter during stormy days. family is at times taxing but they can be your instant friends, who you never have to adjust to so much, even not at all.

why the need for planning?

the reason for planning is to have a wider margin of error. there are people who are really gifted, who strives living life on the edge, and who survive hairline thin margin of error, but how many are they in society? a society is only as strong as its weakest link. majority belong to the average which should be accommodated by a wider margin of error.

me: a conscientious introvert, timid in action, can be reckless but in a calculated manner

that realization puts a smile on my face quietly and somehow makes me proud of myself.

true or false power of the internet and of social media

knowledge is power. having a piece of knowledge about a person, of what he does, and what he thinks of give an idea that a person has someone figured it out. but if what does that person divulge in the internet is ever true or false is another issue. every one tries to project that he is powerful, that he is cool and he is living the life even though in reality that could be completely the opposite.

classic beauty of basketball

i have watched several classic nba basketball games and beauty at any age is still beautiful. though played in different styles, games in the 70s and 80s were about post-ups, jumpers, backboards, drives, but still it is entertaining to watch. the voiceovers might be in the style palatable on that particular decade but they still sound good to me.

on filipinos lack of planning 2

on the other hand, if filipinos know how to plan, the fertility has long gone plummeted. nobody would ever think of having families or probably postpone it for a while if they intend not to have a mediocre life with all the basic needs of a family present. the government already struggles and is overstretched in providing services coupled with a plethora of issues like inefficiency and corruption. cultural issues like brothers or sisters depending on any sibling who has somehow "made it" rather than aspiring to be self-reliant and self-sufficient would also bear down on the latter.
