Ang Sagot ni Stella: Isang Tula para kay Fidel

Youtube Trailer by Viva Films
It is also currently being shown at SM Center Valenzuela.

Isang Tula para kay Fidel
(Sagot ni Stella sa 100 Tula para kay Stella)

Pasensya ka na. Alam mo namang music talaga ang passion ko. Pero heto, sinubukan kong gumawa ng isang tula para sa iyo.

Kay tagal din ng panahong ginugol mo sa akin,
Nabulag nga yata ako't hindi ko napansin,
Nalango sa mga ambisyon ko’t naisin,
Kasama ang ‘sang boteng beer at kutkutin.

Alam kong gumuho ang iyong mundo,
Dibdib mo’y tila isiniksik sa masikip na buslo ,
Matapos ang lahat, sana ako ay mapatawad mo,
Manatili ang mga ala-ala noong first year pa tayo.  

Naaalala mo pa ba noong binanggit ko ang iyong ngalan sa entablado?
Tsaka yung sinabi ko sa banyong… paano kaya kung naging tayo?
Di ba’t napakasarap balikan ng ating nakaraan?
Masayang malungkot na kabanata ng ating kabataan.

Sadya mang hindi inadya na ang panahong ito’y maging atin,
Na ako’y maging iyo, At ika’y maging akin,
Masugatan man at magdugo ang iyong damdamin, 
Ika’y magpakatatag at magpatuloy pa rin.

 Andito lang,
Stella

Eatsploring Malabon without Leaving Valenzuela City

Just last month, One Valenzuela was able to eatsplore a part of Malabon, one of Valenzuela's neighboring cities. It was an unplanned treat of a dear kindred soul (Salamat!) after a very long and hot day at work. The spontaneous trip led the troop to Gov. Pascual Avenue where one may find several go-to places which are very popular among locals and visitors alike.  
Governor Pascual Avenue, Malabon City 
Although Malabon seems so near, being waist-deep in all the daily tasks can make a visit to this city a bit of a challenge. So, is it possible to eatsplore some Malabon food fare without leaving Valenzuela City? Yes! Just in case you are craving for some pancit malabon or a good boodle fight with the barkada, One Valenzuela would like to share to you two Malabon-based food establishments which have branches in Valenzuela City:

Nanay's Pancit Malabon
Moms are the best and when one sees a restaurant or a humble diner with the word Nanay, you would probably feel at home. In 2015, Nanay's Pansit Malabon won the Battle of the Best Pancit Malabon in GMA's Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (You can read more about it in the Certified Foodies blog).

You will see this bilao-made trophy near the counter.
Solo order of pancit malabon and a quekiam.

Where to Find Nanay's Pansit Malabon in Valenzuela:
According to the owner, who is a grandson of Nanay's pioneer, the Valenzuela branch has been serving pansit for about 8 years now.

La Mesa de Mikay Boodle Fight House
This is a well-known dining place for those who would like to eat in groups. Best to use one's bare hands (Sarap magkamay!) to dig the hot garlic rice, boneless fish, as well as some grilled meat and squid. La Mesa de Mikay offers many food sets named after the barangays of Malabon, namely, Catmon, Muzon, Dampalit, Concepcion, Tinajeros, Niugan, and Maysilo.
