Coffee-phany

July 25th, 2012 No comments
Turkish Coffee. Opted for the sweet  version
I'm not sure if it's because I'm getting older or coffees are getting sweeter but I'm starting to appreciate them. I still don't flood my social networking accounts with pictures of Starbucks or The Coffee Beanery (andaming guilty dito); I'm perfectly happy with the instant variety as long as it is sweetened.

In the few short months I've learned I don't like Espressos (except when it's drowned with milk and sugar - in one of the greatest oxymoron Espresso Frappuchino)
I'm not addicted to it though, a friend (of a friend) who was introduced to me said he got fine tremors cause of drinking too much. To be fair, he was preparing for the Bar Exams so - sige lang di ba. Attorney..,hehe
Thinking back I developed an aversion to it at first because I always associate it as a really bitter grown up drink and I don't like anything bitter/sour and I wasn't in a hurry to grow up at all. When I did grow older, I found na medyo pa-sosyal ang nasa coffee houses. They make good coffee pero andaming pa importante na nakatambay. I, also, think there is an unwritten rule in posh coffee houses that baristas in the Philippines need to be young and fit. Pag indi eh - stockist ang laglag mo. Why coffee shops? I could, in theory, make my own but I can never get the ratio right. Di na bless ni God in that regards - mixers and cocktails, however are a different story.


Scoop?
 As I said I'm not addicted to it. I'm not craving for it when I wake up - a glass of water, chocolate or orange juice is fine. I am however more than willing to try new types - except the one I keep hearing that comes out from a cat's arse, no thank you. hehe

Spot the difference

July 17th, 2012 No comments

Bit obvious.  We’re just too americanized even on design.
If it stayed on the designer’s board (longer) a more original press logo would have been hatched.

Every three years

July 15th, 2012 No comments
Note to self:
There is ( or was - depending when you read this again) a comedy series which was Legend (wait-for-it) - dary, titled 'How I met your mother.' In season 7, episode 20 they had a thing where they showed that they watch the Star Wars trilogy every three years. But before they watch the trilogy they reminisce about the past three years and predict where they'll be in the next three. That's the answer the rhetorical question on they question; why this entry?


So on July 2009 what was I up to and on 2015 where do I think I will be?
Hmmn., In 2009 I think I would have been in Naga City either doing my day job or something daft. I would have been living with my parents - saving thousands in rent and utilities - and of course single. I don't care what people say when you have your own family you move out. Back then I would have thought I would be in the United States by 2012. I would have thought I'd be in a serious relationship by now as most Pinoys tend to do.
Come to think of it. If someone asked me then if I given a choice of either a high paying job or settling down by the time I'm 30 in my heart of heart I would have chosen the former.
Which brings me to today. Am I in a high paying job?; Well not really, I've been saving for two years and I've only got just enough for one of the wheels for a Ducati. Having said that I believe I earn enough for myself. I can buy all the things I need and most of the things I really want. I'm still not in a serious relationship. I'm doubting if the master plan get rich, married and then wing it is all that it's cracked up to be.
And in 2015, where would I be? Who knows? As I have mentioned before, I still want to travel. I want my closest friends to go with me this time though. I want to revisit Paris when I'm older - they say the city grows old with you.
 The general trend though is it's gonna be legend (wait-for-it) dary! I'm quite grateful for that so bring on the next three years- I can't wait

President Aquino declared today through Proclamation No. 433 a “National Day of Remembrance” for comedy king Dolphy.  Who wouldn’t know him?  He’s huge with baby boomers generation growing up if it’s comedy (blockbuster)  film it has to be him.  No will ever equal his wit, humor and love of  life – a truly rare soul – I bet you he’s making someone laugh at this very moment UP there!

Antisipasyón, 2nd Ed now out

July 13th, 2012 No comments

Antisipasyón asín Ibá pang mga Rawitdáwit sa Bikol asín Inglés
(Anticipation and Other Poems in Bikol and English)
Second Edition, Ateneo de Naga University Press, 2012

The poems in Antisipasyón happen in the ambiguity that sprawls numinous between the terminals of departure and arrival. This is the contact or liminal zone where the freight of meanings and the languages that ferry them are kept in perpetual abeyance—prayed for, expected, glimpsed at, and yet never quite shapely or certain enough to be known or grasped by even the most eager of interpretive hands. The wonder of it all is that in the company of Nierva’s fastidious and implacably situated imagination, this transitivity across languages and worlds becomes not an experience of pathological and pointless delay, but rather itself a passionate journey over the unforgettable landscapes and through the inscapes of earth-bound thought and ascendant feeling. Because they resolutely accentuate the event, materiality, and specificity of their Bicolano provenance and ground, Nierva’s poems never quite leave the place of their nativity even as they transfigure it into the universal of all true Art.
— J. Neil C. Garcia

At its best, Vic Nierva’s poetry is fraught with waiting. Metaphor is quietly built up to the final insight. Almost, almost there, but seemingly never handed over. At each turn, we find silences where our hands braille for some luminous, moving thing that surely has always been there for us. Like breath or prayer. And then we reach inwards. The gesture is as inevitable as the wonder: Náenotán niyá an enot tang gios! Nierva has been breathing in us through the night.
— Merlinda C. Bobis

In Antisipasyón, Vic Nierva's filtering vision brings into focus—in poems both heartfelt and precise—internal and external landscapes that only a gifted Bikolnon native can genuinely portray as regionally unique, engaging realities. Many poems in this collection raise the level of Bikolnon verse writing to a remarkable peak of achievement.
— Luis Cabalquinto

Hiníhiling ko an Antisipasyón ni Nierva na saróng malúdok na pag-agaghá sa mga bagay na minálaktaw sa tulóng panahón kan satúyang ronáng Bikol. An tren na nagsísirbing saíyang nangúngurog na metapóra asín an ibá pang mga tunínong alágad may kusóg na magpakurad- kutad sa daghán na mga imáhe mináalok satuyà sa saróng pagbakláy, pagsalíngoy, paghurúp- húrop kan mga bagay na daí ta kayang laktawán ta an buhay panù-panò nin mga istasyón nin satúyang sadíring pasyón: mga muhón nin pagkatagalpô na nagíbo ni Nierva sa mga bersíkulo sa behíkulong may kabráy sa Bikolnon na kalág.
— Kristian Sendon Cordero
