ten seconds lang naging tatlong oras
ika-anim ng abril naging isang hudas
hindi naman biro, hindi nakakatawa
sinabi na kasing wag magtanong o manghula

hindi kasi marunong magsinungaling
sa susunod umiwas at humarap sa dingding
wala namang diskarteng nasira o natuloy
isang dagok lang ‘to sa buhay ng isang unggoy

big bang theory, head in cloud 9
I’ll never go, I’ll never go far, walking on sunshine
kailangan ko lang ng sandamukal na sunblock
bad romance bossanova basha, simple lang, pero rock

ten seconds lang naging tatlong oras
tatlong oras lang, pero ambilis na lumipas
hinihintay ko lang na sumikat ang araw
makatulog na nga, may pasok pa nga daw

  1. hi mamidadi,
    just curious how many guest you had in your wedding. my wife to be & i booked the banquet hall for our wedding reception. just want to ask how you managed to fit them up in the venue. thank you and godbless

    • Hi, Bryan!

      We had 150 guests. But I have to admit, the banquet was pretty small and we couldn’t really move around for picture taking because of lack of space. I guess the most feasible number of guests for that space is just around 80-100. 🙂
