Granado Espada: I’m Back! (Wait! What to press again?)


A couple of weeks ago, I was also back in my beloved game Granado Espada. And it was a dream come true because as some of you know I love this game more than World of Warcraft, cucumber on ice and any hot cow burgers in the world, and this is where I found true love in a MMORPG. Although I’ve been busy with a million and one things in my daily life, I could feel that I’ll be hooked again in this game. Thank you to my brand new laptop that can accommodate such high definition game and I’ll be rocking again world, err, I forgot what it is called; so no more dead air during weekends and free time. But anyways, many things have changed and been added in-game. There are the settings, notifications and, well, there so many of them I don’t what the game call it. I think it will take time for me to know more about it again. I just feel great because on my first day of the come back I quickly learned some few in-game new stuffs. First thing, I recognize is already a reward system where they give away extra experience points every time you come back in-game. And add to that the freebies when you answer surveys. With that, I recently got 3 pair of wings (expires in 15 days) for free, some free costumes (with expiration that I don’t remember how long) and the usual buff items.

The funny thing about the come back, though, is that I don’t know the game controls anymore. I was like a reborn kid looking for tutorials just to get my memories of the good old days back in the stitches of my cerebral capacity. It is actually the same feeling like I know everything but I just forgot everything about it (huh?) — in other words, amnesia. But I think I will get there and will welcome a couple of eye bags soon because I’m really, really going to re-study everything.


I also missed my Viki (Count Francis) a lot deeper, especially our summoning and the puny enemy-squashing sessions, which I did right after I chew and digest the nostalgic control navigation self-refresher course. I remember each giants I want to use every time there are mobs, and while writing this I wanted to visit the forgotten territories for more mobs to kill. I noticed that there are new “Stance” which features new summons. I just need to level up in order for me to start the quest to get it. But before that, I remembered how I needed to farm more summoning items in some selected areas of the world so I can enjoy the forgotten territories. Hopefully, I won’t messed up with the other game items, in which I’m still trying to relearn their use from scratch.

On the other hand, my unfinished quests are quite hard to track back in spite of the feature that tells me what to do next. I guess I will leave some in an incubator and just let time flies until I’m all ready to complete it. I think it will never be too late to finish those.
The only thing that’s not back in-game is the noisy chatroom. It’s full of cobwebs just right at this point. Most of them are not longer active, although I see some of the fellas on Facebook. I guess I have to show them that I’m playing and blogging again, so they’d get motivated to come back as well.
Anyways, stay tune for more updates about the my life in and outside the game. I wish you keep reading this blog full of random things in my head.
See yah!



Platonic Lang

Sasabay sa agos ng gusto mo
Dahil sa iyo’y umaasang gagaling
Ang sugat na naranasan ko sa aking nakaraan.
Kahit hindi mo pa ako mahal
Ayos lang sa’kin na sumusunod sa’yo.
Baka doon mo malaman kung gaano kita kamahal.

Aasa nga ba ako sa galaw ng puso mo?
Bakit ‘di ko matanggap na
Hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa rin tayo?
May pilit ka bang hinahanap?
Bakit ‘di mo subukan sabihin?
Kahit sa’yo ito’y platonic lang.

Malay mo sa puso ko,
Doon lang pala ito nakatago.
Akala mo lang nagbibiro ako sa lahat ng ‘to.
‘Di mo lang talaga alam,
Naririto ako para sa’yo,
Walang halong biro, lahat ng ito ay totoo.

Aasa nga ba ako sa galaw ng puso mo?
Bakit ‘di ko matanggap na
Hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa rin tayo?
May mali nga ba sa akin?
Subukan mo kaya akong siyasatin
Kahit lahat sa’yo ito’y PLATONIC LANG.

Nagpapatila (Version 2)


Umuulan na naman
Kasabay ang hapdi na nararamdaman ng puso ko.
Titila pa nga ba
Ang luha ko dahil sa sakit na nararamdaman ko?
Kidlat at kulog ng galit
Ay naririnig ko pa din sa likod ng aking isip.
Kahit saan ako lumingon, ikaw pa din ang nasisilip.
Hiwa-hiwalay na ulap na parang pangarap ko:
Kumakapal ngunit unti-unti na ring naglalaho
Sa pagbuhos ng ulan ng kabiguan na hatid mo.

Ano pang silbi ng pagbalik
Kung ang pagitan natin ay ‘sang dipa ng tinik?
Kahit na may kulay rosas pa,
Kung humihiwa naman ito ng pagsisisi sa bawat halik?
Kahit na ako’y giniginaw,
Ano’ng silbi pa ng yakap kung basang-basa na ako sa ulan?
Tatahimik pa ba ang patak nito
Sa bawat pagdampi sa lupa na parang nawawalang pangako.

Lumingon ka sa mga sinabi mo,
Kung hindi mo makita, maaaring naging hangin lang ito.
Ang mga sinulat mo,
Nalulusaw na sa ulan ng luha ko na hindi para sa’yo.
Ako’y magpapatila na lang,
Dahil hindi biro itong bagyong pinagdadaanan ko.
Hihintayin ko na lang
Ang pagsulyap muli ng araw mula sa likod ng mga ulap.
Baka sakaling patuyuin pa nito ang aking mga luha.


Link to version 1



Tama bang maghintay sa’yo,
Habang kapiling mo s’ya.
Dahil hinanap ka pa din ng puso ko
Kahit alam ko kung saan ka naman pumupunta.

Tama bang ibigay ko sa’yo
Ang tiwalang mamahalin ako,
Kung iba naman ang binubulong
Sa likod ng damdamin na umaasa sa’yo?

Ang sabi mo mahal mo s’ya ngunit sa akin ka nakatingin.
Ang puso mo’y nasa palad n’ya ngunit ang pagtibok nito’y para sa akin.
Dadaanin ko na lang ba lahat ng ito sa awit
Habang ang araw ay lumulubog ng kasama mo s’ya?
Masama nga bang hilingin na sana maging akin ka
Ngunit masasaktan s’ya…
