Random Sighs

Thought: I wanna fly a kite.

I don't know. Sometimes, there are too many pressures in life and I wanna fly away just feeling the wind. I want to see the sun and just get away from the world.

Weekend doesn't seem like a weekend right now. Maybe because there are so many things to do and places to go to. If I could only try and stop the time, I would do it in a heartbeat. But for now, I guess I have to wait for now.

Have to sleep. I hate this time. I hate that I am not capable of doing something for him. I hate that I can only be mad and yell at him. I just don't want to feel this way when I just asked up above to give me the strength to deal with all this. Sometimes, I hate it when my plans go to waste.

Hopefully, when I wake up, things could get better. Maybe everything I hoped for could really be possible. Nytie stars...

Windy Weekend

I am so early today. Since Mom will be having a seminar at Unilab with her nurse friends, I hitched with them until Crossing. It was fun because I saw Ninang Josie again and cracked jokes the whole trip. I so missed her. :D

So anyway, Dad said we'll be going to Tagaytay this Sunday. I guess we'll see my cousins at Cavite or something. Hon Hon wants to go with us but he has work that day. And he said that he couldn't take a leave because he promised that he will never be absent from now on. I'm not sure what his plans are or if the trip will push through. Anyhow, there's still tomorrow to decide.

****************************

Will meet at Edsa today. I am so itching to buy shoes. The continuous rains ruined good shoes and they needed to be replaced as soon as possible. Actually, I thought I could see one at MOA last night, but since we went there late, we didn't have that much time to look around. So sayang. But I finally got my Cosmo Mag! I am so psyched to read it. Maybe because of the fact that it is the September issue and one of the thickest edition there is. Even saw a photoshoot of Rufa Mae Quinto. But we didn't delve too much. She isn't really that worth of an effort.

Its Dude's birthday and he's on a leave right now. Maybe we'll all be complete on Monday to celebrate. Ate Che even said that we will be going out next Friday for a night out. I'm not just sure where we'll be going but she said that I could bring a boyfriend. Yay! I'm not just sure if I could drink because hell, I don't do so. haha. I know. I am boring most of the time. But I cant change the way I am. I don't enjoy drinking alcohol. And I am fine this way. :D

I believe I have a series of getaways for the week. Its so nice because I haven't had a real vacation for a long time. Gotta go plan. :D Later!

Waiting for Four Days

Yep, its four days before my birthday and I am so excited to celebrate my birthday. :D

I remember the times when I used to spend it alone. Im just so happy that its the second birthday that Im celebrating with Hon Hon. I dont know, it just feels so special and I know he's been making up for the no-shows for the past years. And hopefully, Im gonna spend all my birthdays with him. Yay!

Its Alex's Birthday tomorrow and since he'll be having his leave, we all surprised him with a cake this lunch. He even joked about his treat for us next Monday. He said that we should expect him serving "putok". Maam Kit even said that she'll be enjoying it so much. hehehe.

***************************

As for my birthday, I promised the team that I will order Monster Pizza on Wednesday since I'll be out on Tuesday. And since I dont usually make a fuss for my birthday because, heck, I should relax for my day, I would just be with him. And well, an Ultimate Buffet care of Dad's. heheh. :D

I so cant wait for Saturday. We will be meeting for the Book Fair at World Trade. And the venue is so huge so I will definitely enjoy it. In fairness, when I had that summer job at CITEM, we used to walk around the place and even go from shuttle to shuttle to PICC and Clamshells. I miss those days. I also wish that I didnt lose contact with them. Anyhow, its over I guess.

***********************

This is one of my lean days. Sometimes, I look for something worthwhile to do because I have no projects left. After the two new products, somehow, new programs havent been developed yet that I am only left with the site updating. Well at least, I am publishing most of my articles at our Company's Website.

Gotta go. I am outta my way already. I cant even think. Muah!

So Far yet So Near..

I have talked with my friend who is already based at USA. Says he's working while getting his diploma. I feel so proud of him because he manages to pursue his dreams by himself.

I remember BJ back when we were in high school. Him being the torpe guy I am very fond of. But then he would always think of himself so low that we didn't pursue something like being more than friends. I'm just so happy that now, he's finally realizing his goals in life and definitely had more self confidence than before. Back then, I felt that he is wasting his talents because he's really smart and all. And actually, he's one of the nicest guys I have known in my entire life.

I just hope he could find the person who would fit well with him. I know he deserves it. :D

***************************

Thanks to YM, I can talk to my friends overseas. Its like they've never left at all. Tatin even greeted me for my birthday already. Its so nice that someone who's far away was the first person who remembered my birthday. I am so touched, hehe.

And I am so thankful for the people who have like, never fails to remember. Yan, I already miss Xzeno tuloy. I'm getting sentimental already.

********************************

I have read Mabuhay Magazine this morning. Dad came home with it as a freebie during his flight. So nice, it made me realize my goal: to be a travel journalist or travel show host. Maybe someday, when I get the courage to leave this office, I will pursue my first love. But for now, I couldn't take any risks without making sure that my guns aren't ready yet. hehe.

Will meet Hon tonight. I can finally get my Sun Line at SMSL instead of going to Bicutan. And I have definitely nada choice but to use the SE phone. The attendant told us that their LG phones have been defective. Anyhow, I still have my Moto pa naman. At least its still working so great.

**************************

Hafta rush the ad Ive been doing. I just wanna leave the office early. Bye! :D

Its a Nicey Nicey Day!!!

Somehow, no matter bad your day may start, it might actually end good.

I hated Sun today. I had my line approved but wont be getting the handset that I wanted. Hence, I am opted to say yes to the Ericsson fone that I am a bit fond of. Its really pretty, but then, how on earth could you listen mp3s to a 15mb phone? You got the right sweetheart, it is just TOO impossible for a music lover like myself. It sucks really.

Anyhow, I wouldn't let that ruin my day. Am about to see Hon today because we didn't have the chance to meet last weekend. And since he has been making parinig last night that he wanted M&Ms and White Toblerone, I'm about to grant his wish and I'm adding something more just to satisfy his cravings. :D

As for myself, he finally agreed to watch the Tagalog flick " A Love Story" with me on Friday. He made a deal that he will go with me if I also let him buy a PSP. Although I am not sure if it is a fair trade, I said yes but I am laying my cards again.

..He even made the schedule already for my birthday. Its a series of celebration actually. Now I wanna go to Trinoma. Wala lang, just for fun. :D

***************************

TV Patrol reported that there will be an eclipse tonight. I don't know if its the reason of unfortunate events or can sort of bring luck to anyone. I haven't enjoyed eclipses that much. Maybe because of the fact that something hides and all. Or something like that.

Cant wait to get out today. Maybe because I'd go to Gateway or something? I'm not sure though.

Have to go now. Buhbye. :D

Gloomy Rain..

Its nice to be on vacation and just lie around the house the whole day. :D

But currently, I am kinda hooked on the game given by Hon , named, "Fish Tycoon". You are actually meant to take care of fishes and sell them for you to have more money and buy more extraordinary supplies to make your fishes healthy, etc. they say it unleashes the entrepreneur in you. hehehe.

So anyhow, ALC Day was attended by a whole lot of ALC Employees here and nationwide. Enjoyed it because Miss Ivy, CCD Supervisor-slash Fortune CARE Representative won second place during the Mrs. ALC Pageant. I am so proud of her because it is the first time that FC won during pageants, as they have said. Of course, the guys have also feasted on the ladies who went singing and dancing on the stage. Guys are so hopeless sometimes.

************************

I feel sad today. I hope its just the weather, but really, the rain and the emptiness of this house makes me even more gloomy. He isn't even talking to me because he has to sleep early. I have also dreamt of this other person this afternoon while taking a nap, that he came back to see me and that he would want to get me or something like that. And I think this is because of the feeling that he really is back. I hate that my feelings have been played by people who wants to continue this hide and seek thing. It really is awful. But I wont let this get to me. I have far more important things to think of that someone who crushed my heart. After all, he is miles away, and far, far away from what I have felt a long time ago.

...Or maybe this is all because of birthday jitters? I don't know about it.

***************************

Haven't had plans for birthday...still. Although Hon and I planned for my actual birthday for just the two of us, I still am having difficulties on how to deal with the parents and the whole clan. Dad said he already had the champagne and wine covered, but still, I am not sure when or where it should really be held. My head is going to explode in another minute. Really.

I'm just glad that I have finally got Ms. Ivy's approval for a leave. And I am excited to have an Ultimate Buffet at Dad's again. I don't really care how much it'll cost, but since it is really good, I am up for it and screw my so called "diet". hahaha!

**************************
I wish I could've brought this edition's Company Newletter so I could proofread it already. I am so honored that EVP-GM let me edit it. And guess what, my article just happened to be the BANNER STORY. It is just so fantastic. I am so over the top right now. :D

..Well at least that made my hopes up for a better future in the company. Supervisory level, I am so challenging you right now! ha! (why don't you think that at such a young age, I couldn't do that? As far as Hon said, I am also thriving to be the best and give out my talents to the highest potential.) :D Who knows right? If Elle Wood happened to have a Fashion Merchandise Degree then became a lawyer, then I can too, not a lawyer, but someone meant to be at the top. :D

See ya later peeps.

I've been Tagged by Camz...(second post for the day) :D

Tagged by Camz:

Each blogger must post these rules first.
* Each blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
* Bloggers that are tagged need to write about their eight things and post these rules.
* At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

1. I have a crush on my boyfriend (Patrick) when we were 3 years old. I know, its kinda weird for a 3-year old to have a crush that early but I remembered myself being so kilig whenever we go to their house and see him. And I guess it made our way to high school because I was kind of mentioning him to bezzie everytime I think of him.
2. I love singing. It started when I was in Grade IV and was influenced by my pseudo-boyfriend that time. From then, I started joining Glee Clubs but stopped during college because I couldnt really take practices until 9pm. I know.hehe.
3. I went to UP for swimming lessons when I was 9 years old. But since my instructor was only teaching us how to do bubbles, I was so determined to learn to swim that I did it by myself. Everytime we have a family outing, I would practice at least one stroke before the end of the day. :D
4. In order for me to have a peaceful sleep, or if you want to make me sleep early, try turning the lights off. I dont know, I just sleep better when its dark.
5. I am trained to drink coffee by my Lola Merced. When all the kids wanted milk for their meal, I would rather choose coffee instead.
6. I'd rather receive books during special occasions. Maybe that is why I loved Belle(Beauty and the Beast). I wish someone could give me a library someday.
7. I am a natural born flirt. Basta, I think I am. Not that sure if it works though. ;D
8. When I yawn, I yawn with tears in my eyes. That too, is natural for me. Siguro kaya ako crybaby until now.
Am tagging Hon, Jenny, Ninya, Elizel, Meri, Anne, Roser, April Joy :D

New Train Book

Because I finished Like the Flowing River days ago, I borrowed a book from Jen, entitled, "He Just Not That Into You". I have read the e-book version of it, but I am enjoying the paperback now because there are worksheets and all. I am actually learning a lot from it and it tells you that you are a "hot stuff" and you shouldnt waste the pretty. Meaning if some guy doesnt deserve the time youre giving him, there are pretty lot of good men out there. Why waste yourself to someone who doesnt even want to marry you or couldnt even lay his hands on you?

..I so feel much better now that I have read the book. And I discovered my worth. I am just thankful that I get what I deserve now. :D

**********************

Dad came home last night, bearing his damness 800-dollar N95. I thought it wasnt a big deal to me but it was so pretty despite being huge. But I dont like it that much. Instead of attracting Hon, I might attract some pickpockets with that fone. Now my Mom and Dad were arguing on how they could even use it in public.haha. Goodluck.

Anyhow, I'll be meeting them at Duty Free later. Now I have to research on the fastest route to go there.

**************************

Went to Makati yesterday to meet Hon and borrow the cam. Then we hang out at Timezone because he wanted to drive daw. When we got home, we were uber tired na. Sometimes, I wish that we could just go home together, or have a car so he wouldnt have trouble getting home after he sends me to ours. Super A for effort talaga. As I have said before, I am thankful because he keeps on doing small stuffs that mean a lot to me. Lahat halos kina-career na niya. Love you talaga. :D

**************************

I got my first online purchase. (of course, let us state the fact that Meri is not really a stranger to me. hehe). The package got here yesterday. Even took a picture because I think it is pretty. The ring looks really gorgeous. Thanks Meri. Muah!

Gotta go now because I have to leave early today. muah!

Petite Power

Before I start with my usual monthsary ravings, I feel as if I need to vent out what happened during my LRT and MRT trips this morning..

Because I was small, petite, horizontally challenged, I was crushed this morning because there were way too many people at the train, even though I am already at the ladies' side. Although I was a bit harassed, the voice in me didn't fail to fight for the petite's right, that is, not be intimidated by a towering height and accept the challenge, as big as they may seem. Ok, I'm overreacting, I just commented to this huge guy that I am a small woman and he shouldn't push me or anything.

I remember when being petite is an advantage. Back in college, I was fond of this acting group that when they held a mini-concert at a mall, I trekked my way and made it to the front page. (Actually, I used the little girl charm, how could you ever resist seeing a little girl get smashed by a bunch of people right? hehe.

..And I thought of Mariz Umali when we interviewed her for a project and told us that we should never be afraid to use our charm. It will definitely work wonders. :D

Seriously, I am but a small girl, but I could definitely fill a whole room. If you know what I mean. :D

**********************

Yesterday, Hon and I met at Glorietta to celebrate our 15th month. Earlier, he said that he found out this nice Japanese foodshop named Okuya where you could see how your sushi is made. Hence, we went there and had my Maki served with so much satisfaction. What a nice treat for a monthsary. hehe. Afterwards, saw a secondhand copy of Digital Fortress for just 140 bucks. Immediately bought it after a few toss coins. Now my Dan Brown collection is complete. Yay!

And what completes my day is knowing that Dad is coming home, not tomorrow, not next week, BUT TODAY! Yay again! I am so psyched. And I'm gonna full myself with Twix and my favorite chocolates again. hehe.

Anyhow, I have to go now. I'm gonna finish my deadlines by hook or by crook. :D Muah!

Wish Upon a Star..

Its barely two weeks till my birthday, and Ive whipped up myself a wish list. Here goes:

1. A SE z610i Hot PINK!

2. The Pink Laptop we saw at Glorietta

3. A DSLR (any brand will do)

4. Paolo Coelho's 2008 Journal

5. Red Shoes

6. The Witch of Portabello by Paolo Coelho

7. Portable DVD Player

8. A year's Cosmopolitan Subscription

9. A Bora or Panglao Trip

10. A VW Pink or Blue Beetle

*******************************************

Okay, so some are very easy to reach, and some are way too expensive for anyone to get (well, in that case, I know I have to save now. haha) but although these are all material things, I still yearn for some immaterial happenings in this world. Like a healthy environment, or world peace, or even love for everyone in this world. Because as we all know, no amount of money could ever equal to a very peaceful place and a heart filled with so much love. Like you cant win friends by your money. That you could only see the real people who could stand by you when all else fails and when all shitty things already happened to you. And I am so glad that I have people like those. Some people who would respect and love me, just the way I am. :D

I had a very long vacation wherein all I did was sleep and hog the television to watch my pending DVDs at Guada. It feels nice just to lay back and do the things I enjoy the most. Sir Ronnie said that there it will be a rest day on Monday. Yay! Its just sad that I couldn't get to spend my vacation with Hon.

I received a good news yesterday. Apparently, my dad's gonna be here for my birthday! :D Actually, his contract will end this week and will be back home after one last voyage to Malaysia. They will catch their plane there and back to Manila in two weeks time. I guess we will have to celebrate my birthday if not on Subic (because of his godmother and his kinakapatids), at least somewhere far. I know he couldn't resist if I requested for it. After all, he missed so many birthdays already. :D

Lastly, this is one of the perfect days because we are celebrating our 15th month. Yay again! And we are still in a rut on where to go so we could celebrate. I wanted something different or something. Last year, since my office is near Baywalk, we just hang out there to talk and discuss our plans and all. Time really flies so fast. And thankfully, after a whole lot of trials, tears and happy moments, we stayed together, and more in love than ever.

HAPPY 15TH MONTH!! I SO LOVE YOU FROM THE DEPTHS OF MY HEART.

When Does Love Start to Stop?

Since I got home early (no traffic!) last night, I took a quick nap before having our dinner. Afterwards, aimed with nothing to do, I decided to call Nina because I do miss her and I haven't talked with anyone from college for a long time.

Since we were talking of the recent movies, both of us were very much intrigued by the movie, "A Love Story". We were actually debating who is the mistress and the real wife is between Maricel Soriano and Angelica Panganiban. Then my Mom butted in and told us that Gelai, the photoshop-enhanced woman, is indeed the real wife of Aga Muhlach. Then we made theories like "Ah, kaya pala Angelica said the line hindi mo siya kailangan, ako kailangan ko siya". You see, if she was the other woman, it seems that she's this obnoxious girl to even demand from the real wife to leave the guy right? So anyhow, I was surprised because in the movie, Angelica was younger and prettier than Maricel. So Nina, the lawyer in her defended, that circumstances like these could happen in real life. That sometimes, even when you think you are perfect enough for somebody, there are traits that a guy could see in a less-perfect woman.

Though in my opinion, and if I were the guy, WHY on Earth would I settle for something less? Why would I even stain my hands on the possible situation when its not even worth it? I am not trying to be awful here, but a friend once told me "Kung magiging other woman ka, dapat mas maging perfect ka sa real wife. Isipin mo ha, why would you make a fool of yourself and look catasthropic kung mang-aagaw ka na lang ng iba? Shempre wag mo na i-disgrace yung sarili mo. Pero kung mang-aagaw ka na nga, mukha ka pang basura e di parang pinahiya mo pa yung sarili mo, in the end, talo ka rin naman." Bad as it may seem, but it makes sense.

In my realization, I don't know how could love ever end just like that. After you have invested not only your self, but your heart and soul, some ungrateful person would just destroy you like that? I mean, you promised that you would love each other forever, and by all means, it should be for a lifetime. It is saddening to think that the foundation you have built will stumble just like that. Really, I hope that things like these shouldn't happen. That when you promised to stay, mean it. Put him or her in pedestal or just be plain fair to the person you love. Biro mo, sobrang good girl or boy yung partner mo, tapos ikaw, kung sino-sino na pala fini-flirt mo, ang sakit kaya nun. Dapat sa mga taong ganun binu-burn sa stake. Parang ginagawa sa mga witches before. Hahahaha.

Let me enlighten us all from a quote I received thru text:

People who cheat on their partners have severely dysfunctional egos. They have brains the size of miniature lemons minus the pulp and rind. They have the security of an adolescent loser nerd, pre-puberty. And they have hearts as sour and cold as chilled urine.

Ang bad ng quote no? Unless you wanted a definition for yourself like this, it is better to change. And be faithful once and for all. Remember, you do not only cheat your partner, you are also cheating yourself as well. What's the use of Karma anyway? haha.

****************************

Am meeting my best friend this afternoon. This time, it is for real. Told her I would pick her up somewhere in Makati so she wouldn't have a hard time going out of the way just to see me. I don't know the place that well, so I have to wager on the directions by faith. Just that I'm not really that good at directions.

Anyhow, Ive seen this on my email this morning. It was sent by Kuya Neil, one of our former JournSoc President. Its really funny. The lesson? WAG MAG-ENGLISH KUNG DI NAMAN TALAGA KAYA. MAPAPAHIYA KA LANG! WAHAHAHAHA

*ehem, translator please*


THE!

We' ve been friends for a long time ago. We come from the same alma mother. Actually, our paths crossed one time on another. But it's only now that I gave him a second look. I realized that beauty is in the eyes. The pulpbits of my heart went fast, really fast. Cute pala siya. And then, he came over with me. He said, "I hope you don't mine. Can I get your number?" Nag-worry ako. What if he doesn't give it back? He explained naman na it's so we could keep intact daw. Sabi ko, connect me if i'm wrong but are you asking me ouch? Nabigla siya. Sagot niya, The! Aba! Parang siya pa ang galit! Persona ingrata!!! Ang kapal niya! I cried buckles of tears.

Na-guilty yata siya. Sabi niya, isipin mo na lang na this is a blessing in the sky. Irregardless daw of his feelings, we'll go ouch na rin. Now, we're so in love. Mute and epidemic na ang past. Thanks God we swallowed our fried. Kasi, I'm 33 na and I'm running our time. After 2 weeks, he plopped the question. "Will you marriage me?" I'm in a state of shocked. Kasi mantakin mo, when it rains, it's four! This is true good to be true. So siyempre, I said yes. Love is a many splendor.

Pero nung inaayos ko na ang aming kasal, everything swell to pieces. Nag-di-dinner kami noon nang biglang sa harap ng aming table, may babaeng humirit ng, "Well, well, well. Look do we have here." What the fuss! The nerd ng babaeng yon! She said they were still on. So I told her, whatever is that, cut me some slacks! I didn't want this to get our hand kaya I had to sip it in the bud. She accused me of steeling her boyfriend. Ats if! I don't want to portrait the role of the other woman. Gosh, tell me to the marines! I told her, "please, mine you own business!" Who would believe her anyway?

Dahil it's not my problem anymore but her problem anymore, tumigil na rin siya ng panggugulo. Everything is coming up daisies. I'm so happy. Even my boyfriend said liketwice. He's so supportive. Sabi niya, "Look at is this way. She's our of our lives."

Kaya advise ko sa inyo - take the risk. You can never can tell. Just burn the bridge when you get there. Life is shorts. If you make a mistake, we'll just pray for the internal and external repose of your soul. I second emotion.


moral of the story: don't ingles to impress :p

Actually, may kilala ko na katulad nito eh. *name withheld* hahaha. Sige, English pa, tutal magaling ka nga mag-English diba? hahahaha.

Gotta go. Feeling ko nabobo ako from what I read. hahaha

Of Books and Feasts

As part of my birthday wish, I will go here...

I'm uber excited! I mean, it is my first time to go because during the previous years, its either already finished or I just plain missed it. Anyhow, the 28th Manila International Book Fair starts from August 28 to September 2. And I mean all the bookstores and publishers in the Philippines will participate in this event. Who knows, I might even see one of my favorite writers there or something. It also means that I have to save a whole lot before I go there.

Anyhow, Hon and I still doesn't have plans for my birthday. The only thing that comes to my mind is dinner at Saisaki. I don't know, we just want to have the Ultimate Buffet and screw our diet. Or so I hope. And since I couldn't go out of town or something like that, we'll both just take a leave and hang around Manila or something. I am really uncertain.

*************************

Our office wasn't suspended yesterday. Thankfully, when it was our time to leave, the sky didn't soak us with rain. Then went to meet him at Glorietta. He was so worried that it might rain again so he decided that we just have to hang out somewhere near my place. Hence, we went straight to Divi to shop since we still have the capacity to do so and have dinner at the back of Tutuban. You see, at the back of the mall, there's this place where there are varieties of sumptuous seafoods and other grilled dishes. And since it has been a long time since we've been there, the rest, as we can say is an enticing history. I definitely missed it.

******************************

Just this morning, I bumped into Sis at the MRT station. I missed her so much but we were both speechless because she just came from her work while I'm on my way to mine. Its just too bad that we couldn't even spare a minute to talk or something. I remember when we were in high school, Sis and I have been inseparable. But due to her illness, she was transferred to another school. I'm just so happy that now, she has never been better and already raring to her corporate job. I am also proud that she has also managed to graduate at my dream school.

You see, when I was applying for college, I only had two schools in mind. First is PLM while the other is UST. I wanna go to PLM because I could have quality education and we could save tuition at the same time, giving my educational plan to my brother and most of college fees might be given to me for say, a car or something. BUT the results of USTET came in first and I have to enroll or else my slot would be given to another hopeful wait-listed applicant. So I gave up PLM and didn't go back to check whether I passed or not because I could be either of the following reasons.

a. If I passed PLM, I might be disappointed of what my parents offered me because I was already enrolled at UST and I couldn't cancel that already, or

b. If I failed the examination, I would think that I'm this huge loser that couldn't pass a single examination in an excellent quality school.

Yeah, I know, I think too much. Its just that I set goals for myself and get so disappointed if I failed to meet them. Just that I expect too much and doesn't want to fail or I'll be doomed for life or something like that.

*********************

I am reading the book I bought this morning at the train. I was so moved by the essays and I believe that Paolo Coelho really have this way of telling stories in a manner that could inspire and nourish your soul. I am halfway finishing the book, and I really do want to meet him. I have noted a few quotes already and I lost count of the inspiring things he said about living, challenges, achievements, faith and love. Now the problem is how could I ever go to Brazil? haha.

Have to go. The sun shone again. I just hope it'll stay that way for now. :D

Vague Obscenities

I was listening to Boys Night Out yesterday with Tony Tony, Slick Rick and Sam at Magic 89.9. The show was so funny considering that they were talking about celebrities and the schools they have attended to. They were asking the listeners where did Jolina Magdangal went or if the sexy stars even graduated or something like that. Magic never fails to end my day with a grin on my face. Kaso some DJ's were saying obscene words like "Tiga-san Ka?" (Where are you from?) and all that. I guess, boys will always be boys. Always throwing cahoots just to make fun of anything and everything they could think of.

Visited Postsecret just now. I found a nice quote by Frank, the owner of the site. It read:

There are two kinds of secrets. those we keep from others, and the ones we hide from ourselves.

Watch the video that came from the site. You might actually enjoy reading someone else's secrets too. :D


Speaking of secrets, I believe that most of us do keep a whole lot of secrets about ourselves, and the people we've met or even encountered. Back then, my life used to be an open book. Its just sad that when you get older, you try to shrug the bad things and the flaws of other people. Like you'd rather relinquish the memories that you hold on to. And no matter how much you wanted to trust the people around you, and the individuals you encounter everyday, nothing could ever set the truth apart so you just listen to what your heart says, even if its true or not.

And this goes by saying that you should speak with your own voice than pretending to be someone you're not. You should always stay humble because at the end of the day, no amount of makeup can hide who you really are. And as Ive said earlier, you shouldn't be a copycat. Copycats are for ugly people. Haha. :D

Gotta go now. I'm freezing cold in my area. Gotta go blab somewhere else. Muah!

Still Preferring the un-Wi Fi Things

Our office installed WiFi connections already. And it sucks, really. I have to log in a dozen times just so I could get to MSN without having to sign in everytime the connection fails. And my work is getting so delayed because of it. I am so pissed. Just put my cable back so I wouldn't whine anymore. Argh.

Its Monday once again. Though still in denial because I always want it to be Friday. Good thing the week passes by so fast you wont notice its the end of the week already. And I am 21 days due before my birthday. The Birthday that everyone's getting so excited about. Aww, now I'm not the youngest employee here. Beats being so special. hahaha.

********************

I wanna go to the Sistine Chapel. I don't know, since we've seen the Angels and Demons Special Picture Book, I wanted to go to the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican, see the obelisks and all the images that were portrayed in the book. As of this time, the only magnificent church I can proudly say Ive been to is the Miag-Ao at Iloilo. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the beautifully-built churches around the globe. I am so proud to be from Iloilo. Waah! I miss my cousins. I also miss my cousins at Canada.

I took that picture almost five years ago. It just feels so great that you have visited parts of the Philippines and making the most of every trip. Next stop, Bora. Mom finally agreed for me to travel. I remember way back during college, the farthest trip I went to with my friends is at Subic. And I have to call them once in a while just to make sure I was safe.

Try living with my parents. haha. But they never let us fail to have a vacation somewhere. We were never deprived to go to different places. I just hope I could be just like my dad, who have marked every single country there is on our World Map at home. I remember telling him to bring me at least one native doll in every country he's been. Well he did, the only problem is, he bought me Barbie dolls instead. Yeah, my Dad's so hopeless sometimes.

********************************

Negros Navigation's having a 75-peso sea-fare ticket. The big catch? well, you have to wait for at least a day to get to your destination. Now if I could only take a leave, it might be a good idea. But then, I just couldn't. Oh well. I am promising myself this summer. I really really do. :D

Hafta go. Something's telling me that I should focus now. Someday, I would travel the world, I don't mind backpacking through most of them, but I would definitely fulfill my dream. And to WRITE about those places is so heavenly. (=^-^=)

Spectacular Sunday..

Aloha! Just went to blog for a few minutes then try to sleep in a while...

Was so ecstatic yesterday because its the first time in a long time that Hon and I made our moms meet again. Because yesterday was Queenie's debut, went to meet at Multi and decided to go to Tita Yoly's house because we don't really know where the venue is.

South Bay Gardens was so superb. The houses are way too huge for me to express them. You see, at Guada, the huge houses just came in few years ago. Sometimes, I think my mom started it too. because she has always wanted a Victorian house and all that sort. She actually coordinated with the architect so she got the design she wanted for our house. Maybe someday, I could plan my house too. Hon said he wanted to have a movie room. As for me, I want to have an indoor pool. Gotcha! I'm only dreaming. Well, if God permits me to have my dream house in five years, then Id be so grateful.

Okay, so the debut went well last night. The debutante was dazzling. Her friends from high school are not so courteous. Some even looked like brats. Surprisingly, her college friends didn't seem to be so stucked-up people. Some of them were actually nice. Surprisingly. haha. Just guess where school they came from, noticing my point here. :D

I remembered my own debut. I was only waiting for one person to come. Sadly, he didn't. Though I never let him forget how disappointed I was.

...So now, he said that he'd make up for the last dance when we get married. (*blushes*) I so love you Hon Hon. :D

**************************

Went to Nova this morning. Mom is so worried of her pets at our other house. Kamusta naman yun. This afternoon, after a dozen rounds of videoke, we decided to go to SM Fairview (again). I don't know, I might have sensed that I could buy my perfect pair of jeans today. Surprisingly, I did. So cute.

Speaking of kawaii, I saw this pink trash bin at the mall today. Since I am so fond of the color, and its print, some part of me wanted to grab it and head for the nearest cashier there is.

...Well I might have been too impulsive if I decided not to look at its bottom...

Yes, I decided then and there to just drop the thing off and let it go. Maybe I can have a pink trash can someday, but not as hefty as this one. No way! I'm not like my dad who tells my mom that an 800-dollar phone is cheap. Nonetheless, I wouldn't even dream of buying a new fone especially when my two phones work so perfectly well.

..Well, unless someone bothers to donate that hot pink phone Ive been eyeing for months, then maybe I could reconsider. That reminds me, I'll be posting my wishlist in a few days. Not that I would like to get ALL of them and make me hog all the nice things in the world, but I'd like to picture the stuff I want so I could have a list on the material and immaterial things I wanna achieve while I am still young.

I can recall one of my neighbor's predicting that I wouldn't graduate and marry at a young age. Well look at me now! Eat your words people! hahaha.

Gotta sleep, bed is calling me already. muah! Night peeps! :D

Desperately Seeking Ria

Contrary to my earlier post, hindi pa naman ako ganun ka-mean girl. May takot pa naman ako kay Lord, BIG TIME. I remember everytime Hon and I would go to Quiapo to buy DVDs and stuff, never did we miss going to church to thank Him for the blessings we have received and to make our relationship stronger. Really, kahit hindi ganun kahalata, religious pa rin ako. I never fail to go to church or even visit for a while.

The picture above is our parish. Sobrang namiss ko siya since Ive been at Guada every Sunday. This afternoon, I promised to visit one of my friends. I thought, instead of going to an individual, why not nourish my spirit with peacefulness and all. Thriving to seek guidance, I headed to our church to solemnly pray and say sorry for my failures.

Gratefully, it somehow worked. I feel so light today. Just what I needed to get through the following week. :D

************************

Our newbies Irish, Clemen, Cathy and Nikki finally went to work last Wednesday. Theyre nice naman. Buo na nga daw yung CCD, finally, I feel that were finally a department. Hope to have a super working relationship with them. :D

Its finally a weekend. Tomorrow, were gonna party. But for now, I have to go through my KRA for my Performance Appraisal. How could I get a raise if I dont finish that ayt? hehe.

Gotta gotta gotta go again. Muah!

After the Rain

The sun finally shone today. But although the storm has already passed, there are still flooded areas all over Metro Manila. Thank God for bright skies. I so love feeling the sun on my skin. And thank God its finally the end of the week.

We'll be going to a debut tomorrow. Tita Yoly's daughter's coming out party is somewhere at Sucat or something. And because we havent had a single idea where it exactly, Mom and I will be coming with Hon and his Mom. And I am so psyched to see him tomorrow. I have been so waiting for Saturday. :D Plus we'll just go to Nova on Sunday and be back that same night. I think I might be crawling to bed that night.

Someone claimed that I am envious of her. Kamusta naman yun. Little girl, you are so naïve. Next time, just shut your mouth up . I am not an inch wishing to be like you. Neither am I compelled to be so in love with your personality. Give me a break, will you? Just keep your opinions to your damn self.

Jen was laughing at me earlier. She said na “Kayong mga nasa CCD, mukha kayong mga mahinhin at maliliit, pero pag nang-away kayo, sobrang aggressive.” I dont know, I just fight when I know I am in the right side. Though I am biased at such times, but I just dont want people to ruin my oh-so-perfect world. And FYI, I dont make up stories. Mukha mo baka imaginary. Dear, hating me wont make you pretty.

Teka, tama na nga ang mga issue about her. I dont wanna ruin my Friday.

Anyhow, I wanna meet some friends. If I get lucky today, I might swing by bezzie's house. Its been too long since weve last seen each other. Too bad she isnt answering my call a while ago. Oh well.

Gotta go cram for something right now. I just looked for updates. :D

Plagiarists Die!

The bees pillage the flowers here and there but they make honey of them which is all their own; it is no longer thyme or marjolaine: so the pieces borrowed from others he will transform and mix up into a work all his own.--Michael de Montaigne

First things first, I hate plagiarists. I hate people who copy your theme from your blog. I hate people who scraps away your idea from you. I hate copycats. I hate you! bwahahaha.

********************************

When we were in first year, someone copied my movie review from me. When I passed my paper to our Class President, she took the chance and copied it word per word. I didn't know about it first, but then our Professor noticed that we have the same work and impossible as it may seem, when she compared both articles, they were indeed plagiarized. Of course, I tried to explain my side, and fortunately, all my friends and our Class President proved that it is mine. As for her, she got sanctioned for it.

I think its not wrong to have the same ideas. But if you copy them to the same format, I think it is so wrong. Your credibility will be damaged, and people will think that you don't have your own style. And that is just a pity and plain stupid.

After four years in Journalism, we have encountered these things. I'm just surprised that some people are reckless enough to do them. Word of advice, pounce your little brain a little more so your own thoughts could come. After all, who expects you to be so damn good in writing anyway?

******************************

As for the good news, drought is finally over. Rain has finally landed to Manila. There's no more use for cloud seeding anymore. Bad news is we now have to deal with floods and all else that came with it. But I'm not really complaining, downsides are just downsides.

******************************

Anyhow, I'm helping a friend's blog. Please vote for this to this Blogger's Choice AWARD. Just that this person made it possible for me to change my layout at Blogspot and I want to help her in any way possible. And let's do it for Hello Kitty's sake. hehehe.

I didn't attend the ICAM Alumni Homecoming last Sunday. I actually forgot about it, but then I was at Nova that time and its a Sunday. I just hope that our batch didn't participate much or I would think I missed out something huge. Oh well, I guess I have to make up for 2011 at UST to celebrate the 400th year and being the Oldest, Pontifical, Royal and Catholic University of the Philippines. I so love my Alma Mater.

Its going to ba a va-cay on the next two Mondays 20th and 27th. Am actually thinking what I should do on those days. And because I am having my birthday countdown, its gonna 28 days before that day itself. Therefore, I have lots of time to do outrageous things before I turn 22. I don't know, its just that 21 is a nice number for me and I hate to leave it just like that. It was also one of the best years of my life so I hate to say goodbye just like that. Okay, I think I'm gonna cry. j/k! :D

Gotta go. pm if necessary.

Frantic Days are Here Again...

After a weekend hiatus, I am finally back and fully rested. Thank God, but it was all ruined this Monday morning. Let's just say that five trains have already passed and still, I opted to ride the sardine-like train just so I wouldn't get late today. But alas, I arrived two minutes after the time-in limit. So sad but that shouldn't wreck my whole week right? Hopefully, I am right.

Was happy yesterday when Mom asked the whole family to go to SM. Apparently, she received a hefty sum and treated us all. Why am I excited by it? Because Mom doesn't usually shell out a thousand bucks and give it to you so you could shop anything. She even asked my to buy an expensive bag, but I didn't budge due to my “holdup” trauma last year. See, they took my whole bag, so if, knock on wood, it happens again, I don't really want some bad person to get an expensive bag or some sort. And besides, I told her that I do not want to flaunt anything just to present a status. That is so not me. I'd rather have a DV-made bag than a Sylvia Santos one. Oh well.

**************************

Have to look for something to wear this coming Saturday. My Mom, Hon's Mom and I will go to Tita Yoly's daughter's debut. And because we don't have a single idea about Paranaque, hence, Mom asked Ninang to go with us there. But unfortunately, we still have to go to Nova after the event. Maybe, I'm not sure. But I wanna go back to Divisoria again. I want to eat BBQ and isaw again. Hahaha. :D

*********************

Watched Ratatouille last Saturday. Warning, I am terrified of rats. And although it is an amusing movie. I find it rather disgusting when a flock of rats end up inside the kitchen. Believe me, I am always ready to barf.

Then yesterday, I continued watching “A Very Long Engagement”. Loser diba, ngayon ko lang pinanood.Actually, I have seen the movie thrice but this is my first time to actually finish it. You know why? I got sleepy with the English subtitle because the language was French. Oh well, anything for Audrey Tautou.

Oh well, I have to go now. My article's due today. Muah!

Calling All 1Journalism1 Batch 2002, Hear ye, Hear ye!

I am passing the information to all those are not subscribed to the 1jrn1 ygroup that Mr. Alexis Romero, Moderator-slash-magna cumm laude-slash-businessworld writer-slash-overachiever has posted his Press Release at the YGroup announcing a Kiddie Party at Jollibee for convenience and hassle-free purposes.

Kamusta naman si Ace at may Press Release pang nalalaman.

  • "I think the Jollibee kiddie party is cheaper, based on the assessment provided by our class president in his e-mail. We are assured of palatable food without hurting our pockets. And besides, among the options laid, it is in Jollibee that we spent more time together when we are still in the University of Santo Tomas," he said.
  • Romero noted that the fast food chain witnessed the way 1jrn1 members complained about professors, expressed happiness with their achievements and ranted about school works.
  • "There is a child in everyone. Let us try to revive it because the demands of our work give us little opportunity to do so," he said.
  • "Romero expects criticisms and even ridicules form his suggestion but he said the option is the most prudent as the 1jrn1 members are still beginning to earn money, being relatively new to the professional world."

Although to think about it, it was fun reading it. Sobrang nakakatawa na in a serious tone, he made us all say "anu daw?" That my friends, only on UST 1 Journ 1_2002 hehehe.

Hopefully, everyone would come. Lol. o_O

**********************************

First Friday Mass again today. The last time I attended and sung at the First Friday Mass, I was shocked to have found out something mean that made me sick and all. Thank God all's well and ended well.

Am craving for isaw again. Let's try tonight shall we? heheh. :D

Have to go sing. Text me if needed.

All Dolled Up

Officemates are so funny sometimes.

One day, Ria decided "hey, I think I should wear make-up today". So she asked Miss Ivy if she could do it for her because a: she's not that skilled about things like that and b: she can be messy if she does it herself. So after lunch, Miss Ivy did her make-up and made her a little more decent as before. But as she walked through the office, doing her daily stuff at work, officemate are either amused or asked where the heck is she going or what happened to her.

Is that fair? Huh? I'm just kidding. Theyre just impressed on how it made me the following: Sorry, may poll ito.

A. Chinita; B. Twenty Two; C. Someone who's wearing contacts; D. Teary-eyed; E. A Completely different person

I am so not wearing it again. Or something like that.

*****************************

I feel so sleepy again. Maybe because of the turn of events last night. I kept on thinking some things. Things I dont want to see.

Springville Fever

I've a splitting headache today. I barely had a continuous sleep last night. And because I stayed up late, and had to leave early, my mind is still blank and the only thing that keeps me sane is my morning coffee fix. Thanks to upstairs canteen, I am full already. :D

Had false hopes during the whole week. Thought I would cover the contract signing but turned out that only a number of people were going to BDO Office this Thursday and most of them are the officers. Hence, I wouldn't be able to go out too. Maam Kit just asked me to prepare guide questions, and write the article, WITHOUT being there. Sad. So sad.

*******************************

Watched The Simpsons at Greenbelt last night. The movie was fun. I was so fond of Lisa and Maggie. I didn't appreciate Homer that much though he turned out to be the hero of Springville in the end. Maggie was a kick-ass baby. I also loved the part where Lisa and Colin saw each other through the dome but couldn't hear each other while Colin was playing Lisa's Song. Then Bart ruined her perfect moment but as comics and cartoons always do, the one being humiliated punches the bully. Of course, the movie made me laugh the whole night.

Have been ecstatic to see the new Cosmo issue. Because I love buying them, I indulged to one for this month again. Yes friends, I moved on from Candymag a year ago.

Hon promised to go back to school again and finish his degree. Am so proud of him. He will juggle school and work at the same time. Selfish as it may seem, maybe when he graduates, we could have a life of our own already. Though I know its still early for me to say that, and we have to really save up for our future, I know that we are slowly realizing our best-laid plans.

Last week, I told my Mom that I don't want a Mass Wedding. It doesn't necessarily define the "shining moment" of the bride. She said "Anung wedding gusto mo, yung kasing-garbo ng katulad ng Ate Grace niya?" Told her that I want a simple but elegant wedding. It don't really need to walk to the longest aisle like his sister, but I want it to be perfect. Something that couldn't be replaced by age or time. Something that everyone who attended will remember. Something I would treasure for the rest of my life.

Anu ba yun, school lang pinag-uusapan, nauwi na agad sa kasal. Yeah, I'm so weird.

*************************

I wonder what movies to watch next. Haven't seen the trailers much yesterday except Fred Clause, which would probably be out on December. Maybe Surf's Up. I'm not sure yet.

Have to go focus already. Pending work on the way.
