-a sour soup. a distinct Filipino comfort food for the soul. as unique as its people. as diverse as its culture. a blend of ingredients prepared to its sour perfection, exciting the palate, soothing the nerves, rousing the senses, bringing back memories of scenic greens, warm sun, blue waters, and the solace of home.

Insomnia

tic tac.. tic tac...
2am

you lie awake
thoughts come harrassing your tired mind
clippings of events come flashing
past, present and future colliding
bursting in action

tossing and turning from side to side
eyes forced shut real tight
blinking twice in a second
fist closed, clenching
clinging on to the cold blanket

tic tac... tic tac...
3 am

you lie still, eyes open
lost track of the sheep counted
exhausted all possible motions
head exploding, mind boggling with random thoughts
fact or fiction, real or surreal, fantasy or reality

only the black night is your witness
hard to tell
on yet another restless,
edgy, sleepless night.
