Showing that you care makes you weak

This is what the great Harvey Specter said. That is why he does not show that he cares for his clients. He still cares, but he doesn’t show it. It will make you vulnerable, makes you pathetic. Be strong, don’t care, or don’t show that you care!

So if you want to be strong, don’t care at all. Just like what Harvey did in the mock trial.

Gotta love Harvey!

Heath Ledger (1979 – 2008)

He was never a man of the mainstream Рa coy individual, reluctant of the fame. He had an air of eccentricity which added to his already mysterious appeal. He chose hunger over the popcorn movie. He made us look farther than his star by playing characters that overshadowed him. And then there’s the fact that he actually had talent.

Some refer to him as that gay cowboy, or the son of Mel Gibson, or the next Joker. I wish we would at least refer to him with the justice of his portrayals. Heathcliff Ledger, 28, was an artist. Though, in a time when so many artists are blank beyond the superficial, to call him as such would still be an understatement.

Tagalog Ba ‘Kamo?

Nagustuhan ng mga kaibigan ko ang pagka-tagalized ng huli kong article. Pero, sa totoo lang, I felt kinda weird writing that way kasi hindi naman ako sanay gumamit ng tagalog sa blog. Gaya ng pag nakakarinig si Gibbs ng salitang albeit, lumalakas din ang Spidersense ko pag nakakarinig ng salitang aking at sapagkat.

Dont get me wrong, mahal ko naman ang sarili nating wika, pero mahal ko lang siya para hindi ako matawag na malansang isda. And I bet, kayo rin. Hindi naman na talaga tagalog ang gamit nating language sa mga conversations, right?! Taglish na taglish na ang pinoy, medyo awkward nga lang pag nabasa mo sa blog!

May ilang beses na rin ako sinita because of taglish:

Minsan habang may party sa bahay, sinabi ko sa tita ko “Tita, ikukuha kita ng chair.” Ang tita ko, kinorek agad ako, “Anong chair! Silya!” Siyempre, ngiti na lang ako, may dimples ako eh. Pero habang kinukuha ko yung silyang yun, naiisip ko, wala namang mali dun sa sinabi ko for it to be corrected.

Isa pang incident. One time I accompanied some friends shopping – yung tipong ginawa akong baggage counter. And at one point somebody asked me, “Paolo, ano mas magandang kulay?” Because I’m not used to saying the word kulay, I got conscious with using the word color (kasi di ba, pag tagalog ka kinausap, dapat tagalog ka rin mag-reply) and mixed it up saying “Mas maganda yung co-lay blue.”

And again, dimples na lang ang panlaban sa tinanggap kong mga asar nung araw na yun. Buti na lang may dimples ako.
