A better Quezon City.

Quezon City was a big ball of smoke back on the eve of the New Year. Almost every other corner of the city was filled with firecrackers. In our street alone, two businesses had a “showdown” of who had the most Judas belt in their arsenal. I think it’s about an hour of deafening blast after blast from them.

I am really praying that QC will be a better city. I do hope the mayor will really focus on the betterment of the city. I do think Libis can be QC’s Ayala Avenue. Cubao can be a better business district, too, if given the right focus by the people concerned.

Happy New Year to all! Let’s all pray for a better Quezon City this 2014!

When you’re gone.

I got so teary-eyed when I saw the music video of When You’re Gone by Avril Lavigne. When I was in my high school and college years, I was an MTV junkie. But when I started working, my love for music never waned but my love for music video did. So I never did get to see most of the music videos of my favorite songs including this song by Avril until the onslaught of Youtube videos.

Back to the song’s music video, the scene where the old man is shown pining for his wife really touched my heart. It’s so hard to be away from the love of your life, especially if you know it’s already permanent.
