Who’s the True You?

leave a comment »

I’ve been wonderin’, back in the old times, there are no such thing as identification cards or I.D.’s. When I say old, I mean the primitive times when paper is not readily available.

Yes, I know that I.D.’s help prove the identity of a person. But now, it seems that I.D.’s are more important than the person who carry them.

I thought about it when my friend had a hard time with a bank transaction.  It’s normal for banks to ask for I.D.’s for proper identification, and he did provide his birth certificate for he had nothing. Funny thing is, the teller had this remark: “So, you’re not citizen of this country.” Why? Does having an ID prove you are? I’m just asking.

In our country, your most credible identification is your passport. But let me remind you, you can’t get a passport without providing 2 other I.D.’s. In that case, you need a driver’s license and a company I.D. But what if you don’t have a company I.D.? Yes, that’s a problem. You can’t have a passport. So you need a driver’s license. But there are also requirements on getting a driver’s license. It seems, having one I.D. is a never-ending battle. One document leading to another.

I’m not against I.D.’s, I just don’t like how you get them. Can we just have one universal I.D. to simplify everything? Just a thought. Maybe it’s possible. Between your I.D. and you, I was just thinking’ who’s the true you?

New PSP go

leave a comment »

I’ve been looking for a new portable gaming console, and look what I’ve found. The new PSP Go from Sony. Dubbed as the smallest and mightiest PSP.

Gone are the days of big and heavy gaming consoles. Portable gaming is now the new trend.

Check out their website for details.

Dead People are Always Good People

with 5 comments

This is just an observation, I really don’t go deep on political issues and other stuff. But the recent events made me write this one. We all know that Michael Jackson died a few months ago, and along with his death, people mourned especially the fans. Even his detractors stopped for a while. Funny thing is, before he died, the news is filled with reports and negative things about the King of Pop.

Same with the late President Corazon C. Aquino, who died recently from colon cancer complications. Before her death, I often hear political issues against the former President. But the tide seemed to turn after her death. People gather up to say prayers, gifts piled up on her residence, her detractors even said sorry after everything they did.

Sad thing is, she can’t hear them now. Why can’t we say sorry while the person is still alive? Why can’t we give gifts and praises while she can hear us?


Why can’t we just forgive for the sake of peace? Why do we remember the good things they did when they are already gone? Even the most bitter of their enemies seem to remember them in a good way. I can’t help but think, dead people are always good people.
