How To Deal with a Paasa Partner

One of biggest problems that this world cannot solve is the behavior of every human being. No matter how good we are, we still cannot tell others to be good to the rest of this population. There will always be people whose pastime is making others feel good, but their actions aren’t genuine.

These paasa people are the reason why we have to guard ourselves not be used by these kinds of toxic. If we don’t, kita ra sad ang luoy. It’s still up to us whether we allow them to use us or we get rid of them from our lives.

How to Spot A Paasa Partner

If you want to know more about these kinds of toxic people, here are the signs that you are with a paasa partner:

1. He/She doesn’t care about you, but just how you treat him/her.

These paasa people might just look at you physically, but they don’t care about how you feel. They will pretend to like you and make you feel good, as long as they get the right treatment they wanted. 

2. He/She calls you only when he/she needs you.

Paasa people will call you in dire moments of their lives. If they need someone to talk to or they need anything from you, they’ll immediately try to contact you and you’ll eventually fall into their trap with all the efforts to take care of them.

3. He/She is always there if you have something to offer.

Just as long as you still have what they wanted from you, they’ll always stick around. 

4. He/She cannot be reached when you need him/her.

But there’s the thing: the moment you need him/her in your life, they’re busy. They have other commitments. They can’t be with you to comfort you. You’re left alone and you might just cry alone.

5. If you have nothing to offer, he/she is already with someone else.

If you have already moved to this moment, what else can you do? Do you just cry and comfort yourself?

How to Deal with a Paasa Partner

On the other hand, here are the things you should do in dealing with this paasa person:

1. Don’t give in. Resist temptation, please.

It may sound difficult but you know it’s always the first rule. You can focus on other things and get busy with more worthwhile experiences.

2. Know your worth. Once is enough.

If you’ve been fooled once, why would you allow another person to do that again to you? Learn your lesson and know what games to play.

3. Kill them with love. For yourself.

Call it selfish but, this time, you have to give yourself a huge favor.

4. Don’t hesitate. Leave. 

There’s no point why staying on that very meaningless situation. It will just give more pain every day and don’t be insane and selfless for no good reason.

5. You deserve someone better.

Believe me.

Seriously, you need to let him/her go.

For Paulo, who’s heartbroken right now. Where's my ice cream?

#UPCebuAfterSunset compiles ghost stories from UP Cebu

Ghost hunting, horror stories, paranormal activities… you can visit UP Cebu to experience these out-of-this-world events. Yes, University of the Philippines Cebu is one of the spooky places in Cebu where there are spiritual sightings.
I have compiled several ghost sightings in the campus as determined by some of the students I’ve talked to and conversations heard and read here and there, some of which are edited version of confessions from “Speak UP, Iskolar” published late last year. Believe it or not, according to them, these stories are true and they can attest to the veracity of these experiences.
I have categorized these stories according to the places these ghost stories happened. If you have additional stories you experienced, feel free to share those to us by sending it here.

The Curious Case of Sirao Flower Farm in Cebu

I first heard of Sirao Flower Farm in Sirao Peak, Cebu City when I was riding a taxi. Little did I know that Sirao Flower Farm (aka Mini Amsterdam in Cebu) is a trending topic in social media. 
For sure, everyone who have heard about the beautiful celosia flowers in Sirao Peak will surely search on how to go there and take a selfie. For only P20.00, you will be able to take a picture that you can post in your Instagram and share it on Facebook. For P100.00, you can take a video and upload it online. Add popular hashtag like #SiraoFlowerFarm, #SiraoPeak, #MiniAmsterdam, and #MiniAmsterdaminCebu to increase visibility and engagement.

On the other hand, here’s the sad reality: the celosias aren’t treated properly. People are not just simply taking pictures but ruining the beautiful celosias in Sirao Flower Farm. With hundreds of Cebuanos flocking to Sirao every day, I cannot help but feel sad about the status of the celosias and how they are treated by the visitors.
