randomness is good (and i want to be a cage manager)

cage manager.

ako, while discussing the future with jay... 
ako: (out of no where, butting in) pag may opening nga sa hotel eh, gusto kong pumasok, para maiba naman
jay: o? (wtf look)
ako: oo, gusto kong maging part nung future integrated resorts (excited). Parang napaka saya at promising.
jay: ano naman gagawin mo dun?
ako: nakita ko sa ads nila--cage manager.
jay: ah..ano ginagawa nun?
ako: edi nagma manage ng cage. anubah.

cake.
(narrating this is an irony, because it's a conversation between me (rica) and a friend (rica). yes, I actually have 2 friends named rica (not counting myself, anubuh).

on being a barely there, struggling academic in Singapore...
ako: para kasing ano eh, parang yung meron ka ngayon eh--parang cake. 
rica: ha?
ako: cake. eto yung cake na andyan, pero busog ka na.
rica: at ano naman yung other side of things?
ako: walang cake. haha
rica: hinde---yung kabilang side eh gutom na gutom ka, hindi madaling makuha yung cake, pero pag nakuha mo, masarap.
ako: aiyoh. tama. (nag isip pa) parang ano eh...
rica: ako, feeling ko this thing happening--is like an all day party. pero walang masaya.
ako: syet.

You Don't know me (with Regina Spektor)

I wanna ask you - 
Do you ever sit and wonder, 
It's so strange 
That we could be together for 
So long, and never know, never care 
What goes on in the other one's head? 

Things I've felt but I've never said 
You said things that I never said 
So I'll say something that I should have said long ago: 

(You don't know me) 
You don't know me at all 
(You don't know me) 
You don't know me at all (at all) 

You could have just propped me up on the table like a mannequin 
Or a cardboard stand-up and paint me (paint me) 
Any face that you wanted me 
To be seen. 
We're 
Damned by the existential moment where 
We saw the couple in the coma and 
It was we were the clich√©, 
But we carried on anyway. 

So, sure, I could just close my eyes. 
Yeah, sure, trace and memorize, 
But can you go back once you know 

(You don't know me) 
You don't know me at all 
(You don't know me) 
You don't know me at all (at all) 

(You don't know me) 
You don't know me at all 
(You don't know me) 
You don't know me 

If I'm the person that you think I am (Ah ah ahh) 
Clueless chump you seem to think I am (Ah ah ahhh) 
So easily led astray, 
An errant dog who occasionally escapes and needs a shorter leash, then
Why the f**k would you want me back?! 

Maybe it's because 

(You don't know me at all) 

Ahhh ah 
Ahhh ah 

(You don't know me, 
you don't know me.) 

Ahhh ah 
Ahhh ah 

So, what I'm trying to say is 
What (What?) 
I'm trying to tell you 
It's not gonna come out like I wanna say it cause I know you'll only change it. 
(Say it.) 

(You don't know me) 
You don't know me at all 
(You don't know me) 
You don't know me at all (at all) 

(You don't know me) 
You don't know me at all 
(You don't know me) 
You don't know me at all (at all) 

What?
