• Take Me to The Water

    September 18, 2012 ishabelle

    Seaside What do you think it would be like if you could fly? I’ve always wanted to know that. Looking at the birds when they’re on flight always makes me envy their freedom. To be able to soar and savor the sky, to be completely free from anything, to be peacefully by yourself… It just sounds so inviting. However, I would still have to say that I absolutely love the sea. I love the way the water smells. I love…

    September 17, 2012 ishabelle

    I’ve always been the kind of person with no definite life plan. When I was younger, I’ve always wanted to become a doctor. When I grew up, I realized I could never stand the sight of other people’s blood. How was I possibly going to attend to the sick? When I entered college, I was dead sure I’d be enrolling for a bachelor’s degree in accountancy. However, I ended up pursuing Sociology-Anthropology. I spent the next seven years professionally working…

  • Happy Birthday, Brother Dear!

    September 16, 2012 ishabelle

    I am so happy and proud of the person that you have become. I thank God for all the wonderful blessings He has poured on you. I believe no other siblings are as different as we are. We almost never see each other, but that does not mean I care for you any less. I will always be here to help you out in any way I can, in any way you need me to. I can’t wait for the…

  • On Smartphones and Smart Users

    September 14, 2012 ishabelle

    With the official release of the iPhone 5, many people are again debating over whether the iOS or Android is better. Forums and blogs over the cyber world are full of discussions on whether the new model is even worth all the anticipation. Personally, I think the iPhone 5 is something that can easily be skipped. I don’t need a phone that has virtually the same features as the iPhone 4s but has a significantly higher price. I mean, come…

  • On TV and Quality Shows

    September 12, 2012 ishabelle

    Walang Hanggan is a Philippine TV Series shown on a primetime slot and rakes in a good percentage of national viewership. The show’s actors are some of the industry’s biggest names. I used to love this show. But not anymore. Recently, I have to admit, there has been so many things on the show that were too unreal and stupid to happen in real life. They took a good love story and made it into an exaggerated soap opera where…

    I don’t like politics. I especially don’t like Philippine politics. Every now and then we hear of some politician, whether local or national, that gets involved in shady things. From drugs to money laundering to plagiarism, Philippines politics has it all, even tear-jerking dramatic privilege speeches. Yes, you know what I’m talking about. However, what has this done for the government? Bills and laws take so long to be approved. Out legislation lacks so many things. There are so many…

  • Good Things Don’t Have to End

    August 30, 2012 ishabelle

    When I started this blog in 2009, I never imagined it would gain readership. I only wanted something where I could write about what I wanted and post some of the works that I’ve done. There was a time when this blog did really well and had many readers. Joining poetry groups really helped. My blog was noticed. My poems were noticed. Sadly, though, I became too busy to even spend a couple of minutes on the blog, much less…

  • To Lucky Firsts and New Beginnings

    August 29, 2012 ishabelle

    I am so happy to have finally made a decision to have a Chapter Two for my blog, Chocolate High. For the past couple of years, I’ve been hot and cold on my WP blog. I have, in fact, neglected it for several months. It’s not because I did not want to write. It’s just I felt like most of the things I have blogged about before does not connect to the way my life’s running this time. I am…

  • Priceless

    March 9, 2012 ishabelle

    Some things in life are priceless. These are just some things that make it to my list of the best things in life. Nature. Whether it’s a sunset, day break, a morning dew, or the consistent crashing sound of the sea, everything about nature is absolutely unequaled in beauty. Thank GOD for it. Laughter. This is probably the only thing that should be done as loud as you possible can. Intelligent Conversations. Never take for granted the power of smart…

  • Leaps and Bounds

    January 27, 2012 ishabelle

    I have to admit; I ask for too much. I am difficult to deal with. I pick fights and fight back whenever I can. I whine; I complain, and I demand. A lot. I am not an easy person to love. But all in all, I thank all the stars in the sky because I have people who love me. I have more than my share of people who love me. So, yes, I may not be the ideal, but…
