This needed to be done. MayWard. They have been bugging me since yesterday. lol. See, I have always been a shipper. Yep, I am a shipper. Always have been. And more importantly, my ships can be very very popular. Uhm, Mulder and Scully? Yes! The best OTP ever. MSR forever. ♡
Back to the MayWard ship. This is definitely not a 'popular' ship the way a 'popular ship' is defined. Well, that's the AoS fandom. I. DON'T. CARE. I just wish the other ships would learn how to respect this ship.
It seemed unlikely at first but anyone who actually keenly observed every scene that they were in would realize why it wasn't unlikely. It wasn't THAT obvious but there was something. I just had that feeling since the first episode. Yes, episode 1. I knew it could happen...and that it would eventually. Hey, maybe that's a ship radar or something. Haha! You can't deny the stares or looks, the 'interest' and hmmm the chemistry (in a different level). The chemistry isn't cheesy. They are definitely not there yet. Not yet. Maybe never. I have no idea where the writers would lead MayWard to. Nonetheless, their scenes together are squeeee-worthy. Definitely worth the fangirl speak. Ha! The sparring scene is a fave of mine! ♡
Melinda May is obviously my favorite Agents of Shield character. She's a bada$$. Tough and strong women characters on TV have always been a favorite. Grant Ward is a grower though. The more episodes I see, the more I like his character. Second fave, probably? I guess there's the character development, in a way. And, the development kind of goes hand in hand with the ship. It's probably just me (or, not). Both cold (Melinda is waaaay cold-er 'tho) but I guess MayWard shippers see what others don't--that May and Ward understand each other like we don't and this can be seen in the looks they give each other and even when Ward said that only May knows what's in her mind or something to that effect. And with Episode 13, ahhhh, MayWard feels! Jealousy in the air lol.
I applaud the writers (for now) for this 'unlikely' ship. Kind of unique, really. Thank you Ming-na Wen and Brett Dalton for an awesome chemistry, on and off-screen!
Come on! ♥ MayWard.

If I could give one thing to the Philippines, it would have to be something intangible. We don’t need tangible things right now. We have them here. In fact, the country has a lot to offer. The best thing we could give our country is one that would make it better—one which could actually make the Philippines great. It’s something the country needs from us. It’s something we, as Filipinos, should really work on. It’s the gift of discipline.
I’m not sure if it is just a minority perception, but as an everyday commuter, you’ll see my point. From simple traffic and pedestrian rules to simple MRT/LRT courtesy and to our day-to-day life, the lack of discipline cannot be denied. Obedience and courtesy, for me is part of that discipline. I mean, how difficult is it to follow simple arrow instructions? How ‘bout falling in line and waiting for your turn? What’s with the pushing, the blocking, and the shoving? The jaywalking? The loading and unloading areas?
If we can’t follow these simple rules, what do we expect from the same people who make them? Of course, I can’t generalize. However, the simple logic prevailing right now is, ‘if Mr. Mayor/Mr. Governor/Mr. Representative/Mr. Senator/Mr. President/etc. can’t even follow our laws, then why should we?’ It has come to the point where ‘if everyone’s doing it, then why should I not do it?’. It seems as if we have lost faith not only in our country but also in ourselves—that we aren’t capable of doing what is right even though everyone’s doing what they think is right although it is wrong. It has come to the point when you do what is proper, you risk ending up at the bottom, whereas if you do what is improper you end up being at the top. Or, the faster you get to your destination, whatever it takes, the better. Why even use the overpass when you can just cross the street and stop the cars? Why even fall in line when you can cut line? Why even stop when you can beat the red light?
There should be no room for this mindset. We should not even entertain such thoughts. Discipline is something we need to work on. If we want to have a better country, we have to be better Filipinos. And, by being better, we have to instill discipline in our minds and our hearts—for a better Philippines.
So, as a Filipino, I give my gift of discipline to my country, the Philippines. Pay it forward, people.
To end this entry, I invite the readers of this blog to take part of #GLOBEProjectWonderful2014 by answering this question:
“If there is one thing you can give to the Philippines, what is that gift?”
I would really like to read/hear from you/your blog. :)

It’s been a month since my mom bought my new (now, the not so new) mobile phone, the Lumia 520. See, she and I had a deal. Mama actually had the idea—that if I had no failing grade(s) (which is ordinarily impossible in Law School) for the first semester, she’d buy me the phone I wanted. It was a clean sweep. Hence, the new phone.
So far, so good. I think I have found the phone that suits me. Ha! In fact, I am loving it. It’s affordable, cool and classy. (Got the best price! Php6,600+) And, it’s windows phone! It’s lovely. If only people would really give it a try. I really think it’s a cross between Apple and Android, only it is Windows (8, to be exact) and it’s Nokia. I have an Android phone too, btw. (Best of both worlds, eh?)
The high-end Lumia would have had better features/specifications, of course, but I am definitely fine with this one. As long as I have Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on my phone, it’s all good. I have a tablet for the games. lol. Maybe, I’ll have some games on this phone. We’ll see. I am not a heavy mobile internet user either. It’s probably one of the reasons why the battery could last for 3 days, which is great.
I have to further explore the phone’s features, programs and/or applications. The tiles layout is awesome! So far, the camera is great. It’s 5mp (better than the 2mp Samsung Galaxy Y I have haha). I have Microsoft Office. The photo editor is cool. Nokia Smart Cam is really nice. And oh, this has to be mentioned, I was able to transfer my contacts from my Blackberry phone to my Windows Phone with ease—bluetooth! It was that simple. Lumia has this ‘Transfer my Data’ feature that would allow you to transfer your data from your other phone to your windows phone through bluetooth, laptop, or desktop. It’s that easy! Here’s to further windows phone exploration. I hope this phone would live up to my ‘needs’. So far, it has. :)
In case you are thinking of making a switch or buying an additional phone, I’d recommend the Lumia. The 1020, maybe? That phone has the best camera from what I’ve read and heard. Haha. 520 is a good start though.
It’s all up to you.
Lots of phone in the market right now. Choose the phone you like and one which would suit you.
P.S. Weird observation, battery gets low fast in very cold temperature. At a normal temperature, battery lasts longer. Hmmm. (This happened once. Needs further observation/s haha)
