it feels different whenever i see an old lady, at probably at the age of 70-80, working her ass off just to survive, selling “kakanin” in the streets….she needs to do that everyday para may pang arya, pambaon ng apo and panghapunan. everyone else is busy to notice her. but i do. maybe because i thought, for someone at her age, she should already have a better life, resting at home. where are her family? bat nila hinahayaan na magbilad sya sa arawan, magkaron lang ng makakain sa hapag kainan? im not against, working per se. im against making the grannies work for the young ones. darn.

so what is happiness? for me the time you are not expecting for anything and something really good came up, thats happiness. when u get a bonus paycheck unexpectedly, every second you spend with your partner, when your baby smiles for the first time, when someone says i love you to you, when your boss says uve done a great job, and a whole lot of intangible things can make you happy.
