FUN RHYME BLOG 331: LOVE, LIFE AND LIVING

 

 

LOVE IS TRULY MYSTERIOUS…

IT SOMETIMES WOULD EVEN BE ATROCIOUS;

BUT LIFE HAS TO BE ACCORDED PRIORITY,

AND OF COURSE, ONE’S OWN FAMILY!

IF LOVING WOULD BE INTOXICATING…

SOMETIMES, WOULD EVEN BE SUFFOCATING;

IT HAS TO BE HALTED AND STOPPED,

FOR IN LIFE, IT’S NOT NICE TO BE SUBJECT OF DIVINE REBUFF!

 

wine-puday-photo

 

BUT LOVING MUST ALSO BE FORGIVING…

FOR HATRED IS NOT GOOD IN LIFE AND LIVING;

FRIENDSHIP IS THE BEST THING EVER,

FRIENDS MUST NEVER LOSE THEIR LUSTER!

 

FORGIVENESS

 

IF LOVING NEEDS TO BE STOPPED…

HAUNTED BY CONSCIENCE AND GOD’S REBUFF;

FRIENDSHIP COULD BE THE BEST ALTERNATIVE,

IT COULD EVEN UNTO THE PAIN, BE A REAL PALLIATIVE!

GOD WANTS US ALL TO BE HAPPY…

GIVE UP RESENTMENT AS IT’S ALL FOLLY;

GIVE UP SADNESS AND BECOME MORE HOPEFUL,

NEVER EVER BE SOME KIND OF VENGEFUL!

 

love2

 

FOR IN LIFE, THERE’S A TOMORROW…

THINK OF HOPE AND CAST ALL SORROW;

FOR IF DESTINY IS INDEED THE PATH,

WE RAISE TO GOD OUR HOPES AND THROW AWAY THE WRATH!

FUN RHYME BLOG 330: HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILSON aka SON

 

wilson-bday2

[Birthday celebrant WILSON T YOUNG, is shown here cradling his fave APO, RICO.The parallelism I wrote about in this BLOG between US President Woodrow Wilson and my brother Wilson does not only pertain to GOLF as their common sports. What is alike or parallel too is with respect to Pres. WOODROW WILSON’s raising the standards of PRINCETON UNIVERSITY when he became Princeton’s Prexy. My brother WILSON,on the other hand, being the Vice-Chairman of UERMMMC which is acronym for UNIVERSITY OF THE EAST RAMON MAGSAYSAY MEMORIAL MEDICAL CENTER has since his ascendancy to the post, initiated programs to raise the standards of UERMMMC not only as a hospital but also as a medical educational institution.]

 

 

As a LIBRAN born on October 18, NINETEEN FIFTY-SIX…

He’s so ORGANIZED  — a trait that would avoid him getting into a FIX!

He’s even DIPLOMATIC and DETAILS-ORIENTED;

Those personality DESCRIPTORS are truly HIGH-RATED!

 

 

  

Having been named after US President WOODROW WILSON,

They indeed share some parallels that’s worth to MENTION…

The 28th US President was a GOLFER TOO,

As Princeton University Prexy, he raised its standards… so TRUE!

 

woodrow-wilson-golf  

 

Back to my brother Wilson’s horoscope as a LIBRAN,

He’s DEVOTED and PASSIONATE, that’s in the matter of ROMANCE…

He’s so SOCIABLE too and is focused on RESULT…

He’s so truly CONFIDENT sans any FAULT!

 

 

 

As a LIBRAN, he SPEAKS UP and SPEAKS OUT!

Does not beat around the BUSH…he truly was, as a toddler, a bit STOUT…

Some would even say that he’s AGGRESSIVE as WELL;

That has made him UNIQUE, that’s truly so SWELL!

 

 

‘Tis said that he takes the driver’s seat with AUTHORITY…

He knows too that his LIFE and  that of his KIN is his own RESPONSIBILITY… 

He would not  truly settle for anything LESS…

An incomparable destination is his aim…as he eyes for the BEST!

 

wilson-young

  

He’s well-groomed as he keeps himself FIT,

That could be seen in the gait of his walk that’s quite FANTASTIC…

He truly walks with undeniable steps, which could turn many HEADS;

That’s when he does his morning BRISK WALKS near the MEADS!

 

wilson-uermmci

   

Please don’t think that this BLOG is an EXAGGERATION…

‘Tis nice to have these things to be part of the  MENTION;

And as a Chinese Zodiac health advisory to SON…

He should try to avoid worry for just no REASON!

 

wilson-woody

 

Primarily… and as I am neither a HOROSCOPIST nor a SKYGAZER…

He’s our clan’s BENEVOLENT SON,  PA, GRANDPA, HUBBY, UNCLE  and BROTHER…

He has reached achievements that are so COMMENDABLE…

He has received awards that are truly so LAUDABLE!

FUN RHYME SERIES 329: BADMINTON JOKES AND JOYS – PART 8

 

 

badminton-ylf-all

[A group  photo taken during one of our badminton tourneys at the YOUNG BADMINTON COURT.]

 

 

Huwag pong kalilimutan na meron tayong USAPAN…

Lalaro ng badminton Martes at Huwebes, walang LILIBAN;

Kailangan nating lahat  ito, pero mas mukhang ako ang TAMPOK,

Tuwina kong kailangan para nga mapalis ang konting LUNGKOT!

 

 

Si  LAWRENCE dapat ay pigilan ang PAG-GIGIL…

Para naman ang laro tuloy-tuloy at hindi pulos na TITIGIL;

Ingatan ang pag-SERVE at huwag sanang MAGMADALI,

Kapag may magmamadali, ang daliri po’y  ITATALI!

 

 

Huwag din sana si JOVY na malimit na MAGLULUNDAG…

Dahil ang shuttlecock ay maaring KUMAWAG;

Baka nga’t hindi pa itong matamaan nang SWAK,

O di nga ba magiging tunay na MASAKLAP!

 

 

 

Si ROSE na dating sa hampasan ay GUMALING…

Parang noong Martes na laro, si JOVY’y NAPAILING;

Naglaho yata ang dating galing ni RHODORA ROA,

Puro lumalampas sa raketa ang may pakpak na BOLA!

 

 

 

At si ELLA HADAP naman ay patuloy na PAGIGING  EKSPERTO…

Sa service ng BOLA mukhang TUNAY NA “CONSISTENTO”;

 Pero ang problema ni ELLA ay kapag mataas ang HAMPAS,

Kelangan yatang dalhin ang “step ladder” para sya’y TUMAAS!

 

 

Itong si FE at si ALMER naman, yaong kanilang TAMBALAN….

Nag-mukhang buwaya itong kanyang simpatikong KATIPAN;

Si ALMER na animo’y gutom na gutom sa HAMPASAN,

Para bagang sa DOUBLES na laro, lahat ng tira’y sya ang PAPASAN!

 

Uy, lalaro pala ang PELOTA KING, na si VIC CRUZ, NGAYON…

Mukhang nag secret-training at bumili ng shorts na may TAPON;

Kaya ang POTOTOY niya’y FULLY SHIELDED and COVERED…CHOS KO DAY,

Even if the shuttlecock makes a BULL’S EYE, the POTOTOY  will never say DIE!

 

 

FUN RHYME SERIES 328: BADMINTON JOKES AND JOYS – PART 7

[At the BADMINTON COURT, with some of my lawyers and staff plus the son of our utility woman and cook, LAWRENCE, with his  Mom FE seated to his left.]

 

I need all of your utmost COOPERATION…

Not just within our walls and in our Law Office OPERATION;

I am now actually bruised and nursing a CONDITION,

Some kind of ache brought by a love-lost EMOTION!

father-blanco

 

In fact, my Claretian spiritual director lauded ME…

Even congratulated me for being brave to be FREE;

Though the emotions may have deadened my MORAL  SENSES,

Even made me carefree, thinking those joys will be ENDLESS!

 

sleep-bus-station-jun-revs

 

Have to make myself to be  busy TRULY…

As those memories that have gone indeed, so LOVELY;

Would always haunt and make me feel SAD,

And badminton would turn sadness into GLAD!

 

badminton-tournament

 

Let’s make our regular plays CONSISTENT…

That’s why I’ll always be very INSISTENT;

For our badminton plays would de-stress ME,

Bring out the toxins and make us HAPPY!

exercise now, 3D rendering, isolated grunge yellow road sign

 

Let’s bring out all of those ENDORPHINS…

Cause ENDORPHINS relieve stress, those like painful PINS;

And brings an analgesic effect and some kind of HIGH,

Thus, I can bid those heartaches and pains, a quick GOODBYE!

 

\

But ROSE’s confession about her love-life made me WORRY…

As it took her to forget after a year, that’s some kind of TARRY;

So if I really have to put up with this ache for an actual  YEAR,

Perhaps through JOVY, who’s HEARTBEAT habitué at QC,  can find me a new DEAR!

 

 

But my Law batch mate VIC,  has some better SUGGESTION…

He said it would be better to just  control one’s EMOTION;

So, it’s best according to him to just imprison and constrict one’s POTOTOY,

By using  super-tight shorts in our games, one’s POTOTOY will go ALAHOY!

FUN RHYME SERIES 327: BADMINTON JOKES AND JOYS – PART 6

 

[Among my lawyers in the YOUNG LAW FIRM who has now embraced badminton as his regular sports is ATTORNEY JOVITO “JOVY” GAMBOL who may seem to have been addicted to the game already. At first, he was so hesitant to play the game as he was previously focused in the game of basketball; feeling perhaps that badminton is not a sports for a macho-man like him.]

 

Mamayang hapon sa ating badminton…

Ingatan lamang po ang inyong pag talon-talon;

Wag masyadong mataas ang inyo pong lundag,

Baka ika’y bumagsak at mag kakakawag-kawag!

JOVY-ROSE-PHOTO

Dapat limpiyahin natin ang bawat tira…

Lalo na kung “smash” ang siyang inyong puntirya;

Baka sa pagtalon ay malampasan ang bola,

Hahampasin ay hangin at ika’y aalagwa!

jovy-hbd(2)

 

Pagbutihan lalo ang mga tirang “drop shot”…

Lalo na kung ikaw ay ma-“put under the spot”;

Huwag palolobohin ang mga tirang “drop shot”,

Dahil ito ay siguradong ma-“smash”, score ng kalaba’y sure na jackpot!

jovy-hbd(1)

ROLL CALL muna tayo para malaman kung ilan…

Yaong lalaro dapat walang liliban;

Halos isang daang hakbang lang tayo mula sa “court”,

Sayang naman talaga kung wala kayong “retort”!

 

Hoy! ROLL CALL na tayo, ilan ba ang lalaro…

Si Lawrence ba ay darating pagkatapos ng kanyang turo;

Baka may lakad ito kasama ang kanyang friends,

At mag-blow out pa, maglibre rin ng nuts and drinks!

 

Pero itong si Atty Jovy na halos ay na-“ADDICT”…

Siguradong darating kahit malayo ang TRIP;

Syempre ganado siyang bumaba ang “sugar” nya,

“Sugar-daddy” na nga daw ang tawag sa kanya!

FUN RHYME SERIES 326: BADMINTON JOKES AND JOYS – PART 5

 

badminton-ylf-all

[I have been promoting badminton to friends and kin alike as I really feel that as was published in the INTERNET, badminton really extends one’s life expectancy. It is an exercise, a kind of sports which involves cardio-vascular strengthening as well as eye and limbs’ reflexes. My latest recruit is my UP Law batchmate, Atty. VIC CRUZ, who is 70 years young. VIC is at extreme left, at rear second row.]

 

 

I am so happy as I was able to SWAY…

And still I am continuing my PRAY;

To persuade all my UP Law evening batch mates,

To be with us during our badminton playing dates!

vdc-adlao-badminton

 

Indeed, VIC CRUZ at 70 years old, has said YES…

You’d be surprised to hear  that VIC now plays with ZEST;

And he has started playing COCK and BATTLEDORE;

That’s the name of BADMINTON of some ancient YORE!

 

 

And CEL GELLADA has been convinced TOO…

He said he’d even bring her wife, they’ll play in DUO;

As CEL wants to get rid of the DIABETES STRAIN,

That has gradually seeped into his arteries and VEIN!

 

cel-gellada

 

In my LAW OFFICE, there was not one who was EAGER,

Despite all the persuasion I did, extolling my FATHER…

As my FATHER was a badminton player and BUFF,

I would always hear declination and refusal from my STAFF!

 

 

But now they, my lawyers and staff, have become ADDICTED…

To the badminton game as though, they’ve been AFFLICTED;

With the badminton craze and strain that makes  them  LAUGH,

With their own mistakes, as though quaffing coffee from a CARAFE!

JOVY

 

And Attorney JOVY now is all so GRATEFUL…

For his blood pressure has dwindled…before ‘twas AWFUL;

And his blood sugar has ebbed to the level of ADOLESCENCE,

He said he’s now a disciple of what is simply COMMON SENSE!

 

 

According to his doctor, BLOOD SUGAR, can really be TAMED…

With physical activity, exercise and with that BADMINTON GAME;

His GOUT and ATHRITIS have flown like a fast SPARROW,

He’d at times play and play, as if there’s no TOMORROW!

 

 

Don’t be misled to the view that it’s an unsafe GAME…

If you get injured, no one but you who’d get the BLAME;

The basic rule and precept is to set you own PACE,

You won’t even  have to smash and jump and even do a RACE!

You can start by hitting the SHUTTLECOCK RIGHT…

Toss it to one who is your level and MIGHT;

Never ever play with a truly expert and skilled PLAYER,

For your safety and enjoyment; play with someone who’s no BETTER!

 

 

But then, you’ll ascend to the level of one who’s SKILLED…

Still, you must not be one who’d  be with PRIDE so FILLED;

Stand on guard and brief your doubles’ OPPONENTS,

They must not try to give a hard shot that could break your MOMENTS!

FUN RHYME SERIES 325: BADMINTON JOKES AND JOYS – PART 4

 

vdc-adlao-badminton

[In our regular badminton games, we have had a new addition to the clique of players in the person of Atty. Vic Cruz, who is my batch mate at UP Law. Vic is fond of wearing super-tight shorts when playing, for which reason some of our lady co-players would feel some degree of embarrassment when confronted face-to-face in the badminton court with Vic’s bulging  “front”. It eventually became a subject of quips and jokes, until one playing date, the shuttlecock accidentally hit Vic’s bulging “front”. Vic is shown here at extreme left raising his badminton racket in seeming surrender, asking for a cessation of those funny quips and jokes.]

 

NAKU TINAMAAN NA ANG POTOTOY NI VIC…

NEVER SAW IT HAPPEN, ‘TWAS SO VERY QUICK;

PERO HALATANG-HALATA DAHIL HINDI NA PO BUMABALANDRA,

ANG POTOTOY NYA’Y “BEHAVED” NA’T MUKHANG NADALA NA!

KASI NAMAN AY BAKIT NGA SINASAKAL…

POTOTOY NA CUTE PARANG NABUBUSALSAL;

HIRAP SYANG GUMALAW, PARANG NAKA-“STRAIGHT JACKET”… 

HALOS NABUBURA NA ANG “SIGNATURE CLEFT”!

HINDI YONG PARANG ITO’Y NAKAKULONG,
