Bunny Writes: A Song For You – DearYou

DearYou,

~

You, who will sweep me off my mind and not off my feet; not with sweet words and lavish gifts, but with actions, persistent and passionate.

~

You, who will enjoy freedom in our independence and more so in our unity.

You, who will have faith that together, we can stand brave and mighty.

~

You, who will be equally curious with my endless curiosity.

You, who will be restless together with the restless me.

~

You, who will sing with me songs that are perfectly out of tune.

You, who will create spaces for each of our imagination to bloom.

~

You, who will lovingly care for the things that I care about.

You, who will share words with me in gentle frankness and not with a bitter mouth.

~

You, who will join me paint our world with the colors of our dreams.

You, who will help me remember – should I forget – that we work as a team.

~

You, who will trust that I’m like your kite – always tied to you – and you are mine.

You, who will enjoy to see me soar as I enjoy seeing you fly.

~

You, who will take this promise to your heart, through our rises and falls:

You, who will never need to ask, “Will you be my constant through it all?”

~

<3

Bunny Beeps: 10 Reasons Why Adopting A Pet is AWESOME!

ELLIE

Seven months ago, I had the luck of finding a grey, striped, crazy, living furball.

It’s safe to say that my days from then on have never been the same.

So, as my good deed for the day, let me share some of the reasons why I think adopting a pet (dog or cat) is one of the most awesome things you can do for yourself.

Let’s start! Meeeee-yaaaaw!

|

1. Pets are GOOD LISTENERS

Just got your heartbroken? Just killed someone?

Hey, your friendly, non-judging pet is here for you to listen.

C’mon… you can let it all out with them. They will even cry with you.

2. Pets make us LAUGH

They are funny as hell. Just check out Youtube and you’d see that more than half of the funny videos there are made by pet owners and their crazy pets.

3. Pets can be a cute alternative to an ALARM CLOCK

If you want a dog, prepare to get wet. In my case, I prepare for scratches. Sweet.

4. Pets teach us RESPONSIBILITY

It’s like taking care of a baby… a wild and crazy baby, just to turn up the ante.

5. Pets teach us DISCIPLINE

They crave for routine. So make sure that you can give them an organized and timely schedule of… feeding.

6. Pets show us INDEPENDENCE

They do their own thing… 90% of the time.

You can’t tell them what to do, unless, you have food. (And sometimes, even that, fails. Haha)

7. Pets helps us APPRECIATE THE LITTLE THINGS

They can see beauty in every thing. No matter how little or invaluable to us.

Take my cat, for example, her favorite plaything? Crumpled paper.

8. Pets strengthen our PATIENCE

I know they are cute, but they are also capable of:

- making incessant noise at 2 am in the morning

- smearing poop everywhere

- destroying your favorite furniture

- breaking every vase and pot in the house

- unannounced biting and scratching

Lovely.

9. Pets make us FEEL LOVED

They are always excited and happy to see you. They never judge you. They are always interested in what you’re doing. They are sad when you are sad, and happy when you are happy. They protect you from bad guys. ‘Nuff said.

10. Pets let us GIVE LOVE

That’s right. They LET us, and they love it.

And that is the most beautiful thing that one can have — an opportunity to give love.

Bunny Cries: Stop Animal Cruelty in Boracay!

I know that I have already shared something about Boracay, and like most blogs, I focused more on how beautiful the island’s landscape is — how white and powdery its sand is, or how its blue seas glitter under the hot sun.

This time however, I have been made aware that amidst the beauty, there is something ugly that lurks underneath and I cannot just stand here and look away.

So as my good deed for the day,  I will share a chance for everybody to make a difference.

Let’s make Boracay an island that we know is beautiful not only for its enviable sand and sea, but also for its enviable humanity.

el

I just signed the petition, “Johnny Yap, Mayor of Boracay, Philippines: Stop the Cruel Treatment of Boracay’s Homeless Animals.”

I think this is important. Will you sign it too?

Here’s the link:

http://www.change.org/p/johnny-yap-mayor-of-boracay-philippines-stop-the-cruel-treatment-of-boracay-s-homeless-animals

Thank you.

Animals teach us many things, but not one of it is to be cruel,

Bunny Beeps: A Poem That You Can Live By

I’ve been feeling a little bit in the dumps lately, and I know that the only way to feel better is through a good deed.

So, as my good deed for the day, I will share with you a poem that I read whenever I need a little boost — a little push towards the right perspective.

I hope it can help you too, one way or another.

IF

Rudyard Kipling
|
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
 |
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;
 |
If you can dream — and not make dreams your master;
If you can think — and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
 |
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build’em up with worn-out tools;
|
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
|
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”
|
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings — nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
|
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And which is more; you’ll be a Man, my son!

Bunny Beeps: 10 Quotes to Tell Your Sweetheart After Valentine’s Day

Happy February 15th! <3

Congratulations for passing the day that tests how romantic AND creative you are.

Anyhoo, the best way to take advantage of this achievement you’ve “unlocked” is to make sure that the feelings rekindled and revived yesterday will be sustained for the next 364 days before next year’s Valentine’s Day.

I can see nodding here and there. Yes…. Yes.

I can also see in your faces that that is a more grueling task than the preparation you had before Valentine’s Day. Yes… Yes.

But that’s one of the many fun things in having a romantic relationship, isn’t it? — the fun in thinking of new ways and letting your creative (and non-creative, bodily) juices flow to make sure that your partner is as happy as a hippie on ecstasy.

And so, as my good deed for the day, let me share with you some of my favorite quoted lines from some of my favorite authors that you can tell your sweetheart, today, tomorrow, and the next few days after, and make him or her giddy as f***.

So, get go, good luck, and you are welcome!

Bunny Boo-Boos: Writing a Love Story

(This is an old draft in my archives and I thought it’s fitting for Valentine’s Day)

I am in another state of panic.

I notice this happens often. It’s worrisome.

Anyway, my previous partner encouraged me to write a love story for my blog. Knowing his skillful tactics in persuasion I indulged. Nyarrrrr.

In the end I found myself here, fishing around my head for a good love story that I must have stored whilst I ogled random couples at the mall. Yes, I can be creepy at times. Sorry, random couples.

Well, you know, I’m not really an author by profession, so I can neither promise to sweep you guys with my words nor end everything with a “bang “.

So, I will not promise anything. Safe Bunny, I am. Hehe.

Anyway, while I’m fishing for a good plot, let me share with you the list of my favorite love stories.

I’ll call this, “Bembunny’s Wish-I-Wrote-This-Story List” <3

  • The Romantic Love

Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez

lovecholera_436280n

I’ve read the book a couple of times, although I haven’t seen the movie. The image above is a poster for the movie which I took because I liked the tagline, “How long would you wait for love?”

Well, how long do you wait for love?

Some would say, as long as it’s worth it. Others, would not even want to be bothered by it. But, Florentino…. He would give his lifetime.

When I was reading the story, I saw the beauty of the story not through this “eternal” love. I’m not sure why, maybe I’m not as romantic as I hoped myself to be.

Don’t get me wrong, my nose would bleed with happiness if someone like Florentino would love me and wait for me that long. I’d even say, that would be a part of any sane woman’s dream.

I guess, you know, I was just more focused on the details of the story.

The characters and how they went about with their lives were more interesting for me.

Their humanness, gracefulness and vulnerability; the tragedy and beauty of being human — all carefully woven by Garcia-Marquez.

I love it.

I almost cried at the ending, too.

  • The Selfless Love

The Velveteen Rabbit

velveteen_rabbit_hr

Well, deny it or not, everyone has felt unrequited love at one point of their lives, yes? — Yes (with a shaky voice, mehehe)

It is a painful experience.

Especially if you’re a rabbit… and a toy.

I’ll share with you the part that makes me cry buckets every time I read it:

‘It doesn’t happen all at once,’ said the Skin Horse.

‘You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept.

Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby.

But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

Huhuhu… Too many feels…

Pass me the Kleenex please.

  • The Enduring Love

The Vow

MV5BMjE1OTU5MjU0N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzI3OTU5Ng@@._V1_SX640_SY720_This poster is distracting me. Hahaha. Curse you Channing Tatum!

Anyway, I luuuurved the story that inspired the movie.

This is a quote from the (Kim: husband & Krickitt: wife) couple’s interview with DailyMail:

Walking away was just not an option though.

‘I had made my vows in front of my family and friends, to stay together, for good and for bad, in sickness and in health.’ Krickitt decided she had to learn to love this man again, however long it might take and however hard she might find it.

Kim was of a similar mind. ‘I had made my vows to Krickitt and there was no way I would ever have abandoned her,’ he says fondly. ‘I knew the incredible woman she was before the accident and the woman she could be again. However angry she became, and however much we argued, I knew that I had to keep trying.’

I know it’s not as well-versed as the vows in the movie, but their belief in their vows and their marriage is just as moving.

It was an enduring and heart-wrenching love story of two people who chose to honor their vows — something that we do not see so often in this world where everything seems so dispensable.

To wrench our hearts further here are the vows used in the movie:

Whew! I have exhausted my Kleenex box, so I will rest. Hahaha.

I will just continue on adding to this list from time to time.

If you have love stories to share, feel free to post below! =)
