My 24th of December

Oh yes I have work on Christmas eve. The good side though is that the work load isn't swamped like the regular working days that's why I have time to do this blogging thingy *Drool*

So what's up with this holiday season for me? well not much I think, so long as all my love ones are with me with good health and some money to spent, that's more than enough blessing to be thankful for this Christmas..really!.

And I successfully passed through edsa with bumper to bumper traffic for the second time today..Yihhhaaaa! It's gonna be a new routine from now on

Although nothing really special happened to me on this very special Day to everyone. The thought of Christmas still gives me happiness inside out...

To all my Family friends office mates Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas to all of you....

Lucky Day

Today I got the Christmas goodies courtesy of Emerson. One green recycled bag full of goodies plus a Christmas purefoods "Hamonado" in a Christmas paper bag. I'm feeling the spirit of Christmas more and more these days*Happy*

So after shift, I walked to Shaw Boulevard while carrying my bag full of goodies on one hand and hamonado on the other, ride a bus like my everyday regime when suddenly along Ayala Edsa the bus struck the rare side of a brand new BMW car wrecking the rare end of the car. Well honestly, I pity the owner of the car but that wasn't my concern that time. I don't wanna walk with goodies on both hands on the center of Ayala Edsa with bumper to bumper traffic because it was a rush hour (8:00 AM) but do I have a choice don't I? Yes I walked away from siting comfortly while carrying my goodies to get out from the bus. And because it was my lucky day the handle of the bag worn out and I just realized I forgot my hamonado on the bus after walking away from two shouting people (BMW driver and the bus conductor) for about 10 minutes. Yes! I went back to get my hamonado while sweating big time on the street. One lucky day! that experience increase my longing to get a car soon.

Just watched the phenomenal unusual love story movie of the year the"Twilight". All in all it was not so bad. I really didn't expect to get all the details from the book to get a live in the big screen, so it didn't disappoint me like "The order of phoenix" does.

I'm a guy who likes cheesy stuff which I know kind off deviant to other guys who like guns and war movies. That's probably the reason why I appreciate the book. I'm not into love story and stuff but I like vampires and ware wolves movies. Darn it! I don't have sense of topic when I write, I tend to say Lot's of things about stuff not related to what I would like to say, that makes me become frustrated writer/blogger.

I'll try to focus this time in writing and not to jump into different ideas. I'm gonna play movie critic in my own way (walang manlalait)

The best part of the movie was the Collins baseball game "vampire's version" when they invited Bella to witness the fun when suddenly the group of other vampire intervention appears elegantly on the scene and when James tries to smells the blood of Bella where the Collin family strike a defense pose for Bella, nice! . It was so real book like details for me at least. The vampire moves was superb, it amazes me like the quidditch match in Harry Potter movie series.

The eye to eye contact and conversation of Bella and Edward was convincing, I bet teenagers will never forget the scene and the line " So the lion fell in love with the lamb" and the scenario there.

there are lots of things changed from the book to the movie story but the movie is spontaneous so I guess it didn't really matter a lot. Just to mention, before the phone conversation scene of James and Bella they should have shown that more. Also, how Bella escaped and it was on the airport not on the hotel .The ending was super cheesy and I don't like that anymore masyado na maarte.

Looking forward to read the next book :-D got to go to bed now! cheers!

Been reading while not having 'nuf sleep lately.

I've been hearing so much about the movie Twilight. Out of curiosity when I got a chance to stop and pass through every National Bookstore I happened to always asked for this Book and it was out of stock-like-crazy everywhere. And one night before the mall closes I have decided to dropped by before going to my Grandmas wake since I'm pretty much sure I'm not gonna be able to sleep again, and I was right by the way. So, I went to "fully booked". As soon as I entered the black shinny hard bound book from Stephanie Meyer was on the first table and it looks like it was the last piece available.I was contemplating on buying it because I haven't read any yet from that author. So, I asked the sales lady " Is this the last one?" she said yes. She started to open her mouth again and said "Sir kung ako bibilhin ko na yan kasi next year pa ulit mag babagsak nyan" So i grabbed it and say bye-bye to my 699 pesos.

I haven't finished reading yet, I'm on Chapter 10. My goal is to finish the book asap and watch the movie. So far, I don't like it but I appreciate the idea of Vampire-Human relationship mortal non mortal love interest kinda stuff yadah yadah.Actually I bought the next sequel already and yes as I mentioned earlier don't like the book but I have the next part (lol) ...You know I'm crazy and I always will!

Ayt, so much for this stupid blogging got to go back to the book

An Open Letter to My GrandMa

Dear Mamajeng,

I know you'll not be able to read this anymore and it's too late to write a letter to you. But as a tribute I would like to write to you and say few things how you have lived your life.

I would like to apologize for not being there with you when you needed me the most. Thanks for being so proud of me. Thanks for taking care of me when I was a baby while Mama and Papa are busy working and still adjusting to their new family life uncertainty. I will miss you cleaning my ears in the morning until I fall asleep on your lap again and when I woke up I have my favorite champurado and longanisa on the table. You want everything done in your hands for us.'s all for your love. I have many things to remember that I will surely tell to my future children about you.

I'm sorry because I haven't seen you yet on your wake. I don't think I can. I promise I'll try my best to come this weekend. You know I'm planing to treat you on your birthday this December because I'll be having my very first car and I want you to see it. I know it's too late now.

Please say hi to Papajeng for me tell him I miss him too. I will miss you. May you rest in peace.

I love you...

Day Dreaming...

I'm really really starving right now!

I want food! food that is really really bad for me :-D

Right now I'm missing all American food. It's really different when you eat the local food at their local place versus eating it elsewhere, a good example of that are the fast food here i.e. burger king, Fridays, et al.

I want this food again. Mouth watery burger from Fridays top with bacon and cheese. Plus the mash potato yummy! It Taste really different perhaps for me..And the all time favorite spare ribs awww! God I'm hungry!

Also the chilly buffalo chicken wings from hooters! raining oil here.

and how can I forget my all time favorite everyday burger! Burger king!!!!!!!

and pizzaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

I think I need to wake up. I am day dreaming again. But can't help it. I'm hearing my stomach grumbling. He's hungry again. what's new?!

Happy weekend bloggers!

My Weekend

After so and so years, alas! I once again saw my spiritual kids back in college. It was really fun catching up with them.

yum yum red crabs

sugar time !

So, that was my weekend with my Cell group (modee,mitch,tin and her bf)

Talking about emo this Crhistmas

I'm a bit frustrated right now...


I will have to work on Christmas eve and New Years eve.

While every single Filipino family celebrates the most awaited season of the year at home or elsewhere here I am working

One of the most important filipino culture is the family bond. It doesn't matter if they are rich or poor...No "Noche Buena" or "Buena de Noche" food on the table...No fireworks..No Christmas gifts..No fancy Christmas party celebration... So long as their family is complete during this time of the year, they'll be the happiest people in the world. While the pinoys are celebrating Jeff is working...

Worst is I work night shift. And since I'm working in an American based company, every single holiday in here is not holiday at all for us (if it falls on weekdays) and if it's holiday in US it's still not a holiday for us in Manila and this only applies to Technical Support Engineers here, all others follows Manila holiday, which means the rest will have the opportunity to celebrate this time of the year with their love ones.

You might ask, there's this so called Leave right?! the answer is yes BUT only 2 people can file a leave in a day and we are 7, I'm not included on the privileged two. And I'm not a cheater to use sick leave on to get the Christmas and New years off and besides it's so obvious that someones making it up.

Honestly I've been saving all my leaves just for this season, apparently everyone does, so guess what?! we can't use them all at the same time. December 24 and 31 is Manila holiday and we are required to work. The reason why this bugs me this days is because I live alone in Manila, after shift I have no one at home *nadah*, now instead of gift giving to my god children I'm left alone at home with my mug of coffee. Also, this will be the first Christmas and New year that I am away from home since birth, technically! I think I need to make some changes into my wish list this coming Christmas *Sigh*

I remember watching 700 club last time, a pastor mentioned that the highest suicidal rate of the year is during Christmas season for the last 10 years and this is because of depression.Usually these are the people living alone even armed with wealth and fame, now I realized why.Mind you I am definitely not suicidal :-D just for the heck of mentioning it.

What adds up to my frustration is no one seems to care about this situation or to at least meet half way or some how see some effort in making this request possible, there was none. Defies the purpose of think customers.

Just two days! just two... I don't have absenteeism I rarely use my vacation leave. I just want the night of 24th and 31st of December. I can even report on the 25th night and the 1st of January night. Is that too much to ask? I will trade all my remaining vacation leave just give me the 24th and 31st *Sigh*

And who am I to complain? This is my bread and butter. This pays my rent. Provides med for my mom. Provides help to missionaries. Pays my bills. I'm just a small piece of sh*t in this corporate industry

I'll just sing Christmas carols on my workstation and light a fireworks on my lunch break to welcome new year...

I apologize for the angst. I need to write so the feeling will go away soon.

Anything goes..

I'm bored right now *Sigh*

Having trouble constructing the intertwine thoughts on my head...


I ate 3 doughnuts earlier Pineapple filled, Bavarian, mocha Swiss... It's so sweet. I just love the mouth watery feeling, it gives me unexplainable happiness...I wanted to have more but I controlled my self and put the box on the fridge...


Just finished Heroes latest episode and guess what???!!. Nathan's and Peter's Dad got Hiro's power Argggh! that ends the episode. I can't wait to see the next episode.


I learned that writing here somehow removed my boredom. So, this is a great alternative instead of thinking things like why I am fat? How can I loose weight in 2 days? Is fit and right really effective? lol

I'm checking my belly button right now and the stinky smell has been healed *Happy* Now, it smells like baby powder like it used to be.

Rhianna and Chris Brown will have concert in Manila this weekend, too bad I don't have ticket, and because I'm saving money I will definitely miss the fun. I got one more chance though, I'll sneak in to Hassle's door and get her ticket while she's snoring *Grinning* lol

I want a book. I want something to read. I want it now! (demanding?)

'till my next post. Have a great day everyone. Thanks for dropping by to my none sense work :-D

Testify to Love

I have seen and experienced how Jesus saved me from eternal condemnation. I have come to understand the ultimate sacrifice He has done for me.I transformed to become a better Individual because of this Love. Love that is incomparable to all things seen in the earth. Now it's my turn to Testify this love.

I don't know how to express a feeling into writing without being chuchy and stuff. I'm not also playing holier-than-thou because I am definitely not. I guess what I'm talking about is my faith. I'm the person who I am because of this faith. I consider everything futile without knowing Christ.

And from here on I would like to Testify the Love... I guess this song would better explain what I would like to do until the day of my last breath.

Album: Testify to Love
Artist: Avalon

He's making a list Checking it twice... *Singing*

Do you feel the Spirit of Christmas? I do! this is my favorite season of the year. Everyone loves everybody, people always share what they have. Gifts are sent back and forth. Christmas Carols on radio.Cards flying on every corner of every country greeting friends and love ones "Merry Christmas". "Simbang Gabi" and the "bibingka and Puto bong-bong" (Filipino delicacies very much associated to Christmas Spirit)

OK enough of the cheesy part about Christmas. Let me go straight to the reason why I'm writing again. This is because I would like to post my Christmas Wish list here on my page. I wish I wish I wish...

DSLR Camera to capture a moment with quality and clarity. Tutal Uso naman ang photography ngayun sana pag bigyan nyo na ko *Grinning*

A Filipino Themed Adidas Jacket and the Francis M Filipino Shirt. I am a proud Filipino!!!

A western Digital External Hard drive. My notebooks internal hard drive is 80G only, so I guess I really need this specially when I have the DLSR cam :-D
Oakley Shades for my summer escapades come March and May. Calling friends from Canada and US mura lang dyan ipa ship na before Christmas :-D

Cool Water perfume. Thanks Debz for shipping this for me before Christmas. Got one 9 more to go :-D
Tap Out shirt. Ohlee wanted this and I kinda like this too

The Secret. This has been always out of stock from National Bookstore. I want this book. Feel free to give me one :-D

I think I really need this a Thread Mill. I promise to exercise more come next year
Hayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyz.. I really wanted a Honda car may it be 2000 or lower. It should be A/T. I will get this I promise!

A visit visa to Canada. See you soon Panget.

So all has been laid before the eyes of someone-who-read-this. I know I may not have them on Christmas day but still I wish I could still have them. One thing is for sure even though I wouldn't get any of that wish, Jepoy is thankful for all the blessings that Jesus gave him.
"Count your blessings Name them one by one and be grateful for it"

My Series of Hair Style Through the years...

I would like to share some of my hairdo style all through the years...I'm sure this is gonna be very much Presenting my hair do since 1997 to present I guess...

First: Bangs look- Yes I have nag mumurang bangs because I can't afford to have a haircut in US, I got once lang yata sa wallmart. I got wavey hair, so it's hard to manage when it's growing plus it's kinda itchy when hair reaches my ears and chicks...

Hair cut courtesy of me. Yes i cut my own hair if it's really itchy and irritating already.

Second: Diamond hair style- Yes I like this haircut but I guess chamba lang ang pag kaka cut because no one can do this hair cut again not even the person who did it before Argggh..

Haircut courtesy of Davids Salon

Next is the Braid hair style: This was my boracay beach look.

Hairstyle courtesy of an 8 year old girl who do braid in the beach side for 180 php only. The process of doing this hurts my scalp but it was a fun experience...

Next is my semi long hair look. One year of no haircut with hair straightening and relax treatment
Hair treatment: Going straight

Another long hair look 2 years of no Hair Cut
Hair treatment Hot Oil ni manang sa kanto

last pic is the Afro hair style. Retro Christmas look from Dell. I'm not sure how to grow my hair this much and to look like this, really!
Wig Courtesy of Divisoria Wigs Outlet

I had semi kal and shaved hair look but I can't find some old pics of me *Sad* So those are my hairstyle yesterday and today.

Me and My big fat Tummy and family

Early morning picture capture last November 1 before going to cemetery in Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija, Moms province. Me and my big fat tummy!

Meet Mom and Sis. Dad is on vacation, not with us this Nov 1
lots of people visiting the cemetery. There were mountain dust all over us plus the heat of the sun in the foot of the mountain. Which reminds me of the long walk we had on smokey mountain of Tennessee, all these efforts in remembering my Mama Ester, 2 years after dying from breast cancer. I love you Mama Ester may you rest in peace.

Belly Button Experience

I was lying on my bed rubbing my belly up and down when I suddenly stick my finger on my belly button. I felt like there was a mucusy-sticky-thingy inside.Out of curiosity I sniffed on my finger to smell it and hell it smells like a fresh poop!!!! really stinky! But I can't stop my self from smelling it :-D... what is wrong with my belly button???? I was alarmed. I stand and observed if I can smell it while sitting, too bad I can smell the foul odor. It was gross! I grabbed my hydrogen peroxide and cotton buds and clean it immediately. As I pour on the hydrogen peroxide into my belly button it started to bubble like a water at its boiling point eiwwwwwwwwww!. So I cleaned and stick my finger to smell it-not that strong smell anymore though :-D I rushed on to my laptop to go online and search for causes and solutions of my problem... I dropped out laughing so loud because of the blogs and comments online.Funny!

Going back, I was seriously alarmed. According to some decent postings online, it could be hernia and may need basic surgery (Ouch!) or It can also be a yeast infection caused by soap and water, dead skin formation deep inside the belly button. Now it's a lesson learned, when showering I have to cautiously wash and dry my belly button. It's a personal hygiene I know. It's not that I don't clean it at all or forgotten to that (defense mechanism?) Fine! I should be cleaning it and applying something to clean it more specially that I have a big tummy and deep bb :-D

This experience reminds me of a bad habit of sticking my finger on my belly button when I was little and put my finger on my little sisters nose or somebody Else's nose whenever we watch our fave cartoons at home :-D

Converting thoughts into writing

The spinning sound of my electric fan is bugging me, that's the only sound I'm hearing right now. Can't catch sleep, sun is shinning waving scorching sun rays on my forehead- the price to pay in working night shift. Don't want to turn on A/C, meralco frustrates me. I wanted to write something worth reading for but my nut head won't cooperate, darn it! Nothing to fancy happened today. Swamped with work. Talked to some racist who said bullsh*t because can't figure out why Autoranging doesn't display the units he chose and why it doesn't give the range he put on the input setup, jargon? sorry for that. Don't have time to talk to vince,mike,ohlee and alex (my cube mates) recently lots of happy clients waiting on option 5 and 6. Am I complaining? NO I'm not. Just wanna share stuff here then soon read it and laugh about it. On the brighter side of my mind. Looking forward on December my very first car is waiting for me *Grinning* (second hand lang, wag na mag react OK). Sister's birthday on November so as Mama Josie and Hans I have special gift for them a book "The Secret". Maeb is coming have to bring her to Shang for dinner, treat her to Spa as promised, bring her to Taal and Laiya Batangas beach. So far so good. I think writing here makes me sleepy, alas! It's bedtime...*Snoring*

Entry of the day

I'm burning some pictures on my laptop to save up space on my disk drive, when I get to see some of stolen shots from one of my previous technician at dell. Here it is

OK, it's not what you think it was! The story behind that Italicshot was this. It was after our shift, I gathered my team to announce my resignation effective after new year. I told them that I accepted the offer from Emerson and I will fly to US sometime march. Then, they have decided to go out and get drunk. I told them I don't drink but I found my self in the party place, a small crowded bar where everyone is dancing, smoking and drinking. I sat down on the corner while observing everyone. They gave me one pitcher of Punyeta which Mamu told me it was a non alcoholic beverage. I grabbed the drink and get a small after zip it taste like four seasons. I get a little dizzy and feel like i was hammered on the back of my head, which apparently the team tricked me because they planned it. Ace our QMT suddenly sat in front of my lap and grabbed my back and was about to tell her "Ang bigat mo..." then next morning I saw this picture on my teams desktop :-D funny!

The day that was

Today I took the IELTS test and hopefully get to score 7.5 or better so I can have the language incentive quarterly sayang din pang dagdag ipon for other plans. So here's what happened...
I was late by 30 minutes anong bago? Luckily, the facilitator can't conduct the Speaking part all at the same time. So when I arrived he already started with one of the examine. I remember the last time I took this I wasn't able to impress my bossing because I only got god-knows-what-score. So back to the kwento, We all went to the examination room after the facilitator finishes with one of the examine. The second part was the Listening, it's divided into four parts where you get to listen to a British thick accent conversation recording and answer all questions the right way, the good deal with this was, at least I get to answer all of the question. But I'm not sure if I have the right answers :-D The next part was the Writing, this is the part where you get to explain a UK graph that tells about the percentage of UK homes that uses modern technology and do an essay writing not less than 250 words. Well, I thought I'm going to be good at it because first of all I love blogging which definitely associated in writing stuff but darn it! it's different when your writing without spell checker and not typing.My hand writing sucks! :-D I hope i was able to meet the minimum number of words even I feel that I wrote none sense stuff on the essay. Next is Reading which I guess my weakest part of the exam. Why? Because after reading a crappy article about the bees and tourism, left handed people I will most likely not remember anything about it. So you'll know what happens if you get to ask me what's the best heading of the paragraph and fill in the blanks on the missing word on the phrase and the like. Last part of the exam was Speaking which has been my strongest point however, the questionnaire doesn't want me to showcase my extemporaneous speech talent :-D the facilitator asked me about my idea on Jeepney ingenuity as a filipino and the backwardness opinion of the people about it which for some reason I don't know how to answer. Don't worry I manage to answer the question but I wasn't comfortable 'coz all am saying was a crappy things. :-D I still hope I can manage to get a good score with this... I had fun though!

One Special Day

I sometimes forget how blessed I am. I somehow super emphasize on the things I haven't accomplished, things I don't have, things I can't have, instances of regrets in the past... people usually define this as pessimism. I would have to admit that I am dealing with this kind of attitude for quite sometime ,that's probably the reason why moving on has always been a struggle for me. I remember a friend gave me a book about negativity and how it affects you but I didn't have time to read it or maybe I don't want to read it at all for some reason. Talking about moving on, I just celebrated my birthday last Sunday. Early Saturday morning I spent time with some of Emerson friends with a good laugh and short talks at something fishy somewhere in libis, then off to my unit to fix my things and go home to spend the rest of weekend with my family. When I finally got home, I got teary eyed. There was a cake on the table from my mom and dad, feels like I'm 7 year old birthday boy again, everyone kissed me happy birthday. On my busy schedule my family is most of the time the least priority, not that I don't love them or the like. I just know that they are just around there supporting me all the way. I know that filipino core value stipulates strong family ties and this is very much a live in ours, but I always forgot it. And that one special day, I was once again reminded that I am so much blessed and I should be thankful to God for lot of things. All lessons from purpose driven life book is very much a live in me again. An important lesson learned on my one special day is focusing on what you have and not on what you do not have, live life to the fullest and be happy. Appreciate every person you have on your life they are treasures that you wouldn't trade for silver or gold. Share what you have and it will all come back to you. Most importantly, Chirst died on the cross for you and for me. Let me tell you a great story that changed me... email me at i'll share what I know :-D.

The Spa Experience

After my business trip to US it has been my longing to have some relaxation like what we do regularly when I was with Dell. We regularly go to Spa house for a full body message experience with a nice cozy place to stay for long hours with shabu shabu food experience at a very low cost. This is the Wensha spa located in Roxas Boulevard besides the Star City Complex. Here's how it looks like outside. It's a Chinese or Korean inspired architecture with nice furniture and flooring inside the hall way, as soon as you step inside a receptionist will guide you trough the front desk to register and give brochure to see what they offer, when you're done choosing the package you want, someone will give you a pair of slippers and will get your shoes which is not allowed inside :D then you can start your ultimate spa experience.

They have a nice massage ambiance with a very talented therapist who will treat you like a king, I have been there countless times and the experience is priceless :-D. The place is clean and well maintained. They have sauna and steam bath and lots of shower rooms. They have a big jacuzzi as well, however you have to take off everything to use it which I can't do :-D so I just enjoyed the steam bath and sauna before the massage. The massage is an hour experience starts from your head to foot, it's awesome! highly recommended to stressed people and depressed people too, to awaken the sleeping blood into all of vains. by the way, the whole experience is like 600 pesos only you have the shabu shabu food there already, not bad right?!

People Around me

I mostly work night shift and because of my work sched I don't get to talk or see lots of people except weekends which is not a Filipino value after all. Anyways, I have my office mate picture attached here which by the way are the ones I mostly see and talked with almost everyday, and right now I feel like writing some things about them, although there are two missing person on the pix from my group (Alex and Louie). Guys from the left are Ohlee,Me,Vince,Mike and Marvin. Ohlee is the youngest and soon to be a father, he can talk all day without you talking. A very nice person, he loves her mom and her sister so much. He's into games PSP,PS2,Xbox,PCgames name it, he has lot's of things to say about all those. He loves history, I usually asks anything about history to him and he knew the answer for some reason. We both hate software orders because we always end up messing something up :-D. The next one is Vince, also a very very nice person. He always gives me goodies every so often. He is our software auditor who don't like auditing at all :-D. You can ask anything to him and can get answer nicely, he can keep a secret. His wife is very nice person as well which happens to be our office mate too. He gives good suggestion to almost anything I asks, when I ask if he has med or anything I needed at the moment, he gives it instantly if have it and offer to do something he can do to help me and to others as well, literally, a very good person. Next is Mike, my breakfast buddy, he is like angel Gabriel to all of us work wise, he shares everything he new. He don't look down for any stupid question. He makes you feel better even at worst happening in the office. He is the provider in his family which is very awesome work, we admire and respect him for that. One of our software order auditor too who don't like auditing as well :-D. we belong in a square space in the office me mike Alex and ohlee which is the best place to be, work wouldn't be the same if the seat plan is not like what we have. He is nice as Vince they are awesome. Next is Marv he has good work attitude, i guess that's all I can say I don't usually get to talk to him much. Next is Alex which happens to be not on the pic. What you see is what you get. A tough guy with soft heart, you can talk to him about cars and kids, a good provider to his family, he has a cute daughter and nice wife which has been my previous officemate. Lastly Louie, he is our lead and a previous officemate at Dell. A family man. Although we don't get to talk much comparing to vince,mike and ohlee I know he is a nice person also he seats far from us so we don't get to talk to him much. They are my officemates and I am thankfull to God for them. I hope I can be a good person who can extend a hand for them when they needed it.

Quarter-Life Crisis????!!!!! wtf!!!

They call it the "Quarter-life Crisis." It is when you stop going alongwith the crowd and start realizing that there are a lot of things aboutyourself that you didn't know and may not like. You start feelinginsecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then getscared because you barely know where you are now.
You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, thosefriends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly thegreatest people you have ever met and the people you have lost touchwith are some of the most important ones. What you do not realize isthat they are realizing that too and are not really cold or catty ormean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.
You look at your job. It is not even close to what you thought you wouldbe doing or maybe you are looking for one and realizing that youare going to have to start at the bottom and are scared.
You miss the comforts of college, of groups, of socializing with thesame people on a constant basis. But then you realize that maybe theyweren't so great after all. You are beginning to understand yourselfand what you want and do not want.
Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing andfind yourself judging a bit more than usual because suddenly you realizethat you have certain boundaries in your life and add things toyour list of what is acceptable and what is not.
You are insecure and then secure. You laugh and cry with the greatestforce of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenlychange is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear lifebut soon realize that the past is drifting further and further awayand there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.
You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do suchdamage to you or you lie in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyonedecent enough to get to know better. You love someone but maybe lovesomeone else too and cannot figure out why you are doing this because you are not a bad person.
You go through the same emotions and questions over and over and talkwith your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to makea decision.
You worry about loans and money and the future and making a life foryourself and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd justlike to be a contender!

1014 C P Campa

I was actually checking pictures out of boredom when I accidentally saw my old 1014 C P-Campers picture compilation which is by the way I always do when I can't think of something worth while to do-looking at old pictures, I have a basket full of these.
1014 C is actually our boarding house door number and it is located in Padre Campa street in sampaloc where the heart of university belt home for college students are at. I stayed there during my junior year in college up until the first year of working. This was an apartment for girls and boys, so imagine the riot if classes are postponed or holiday in between week days. Our land lady can't handle us at times and it's kinda fun sneaking around stuff at night and the never ending talks about school life and stuff, about our plans after graduation, the "tipid" meals just to save our weekly allowance, the love hate relationship, the out of towns, these are all the best times of our life. I just realized that these people has been my family for like 5 years, they have seen the worst and best part of me, they were true friends like a pure blood line, I was wondering where are these people now? I was able to meet up to some of them rarely, others I don't see them at all. Trough it all, our bond is still present even we don't get to see each other we still have contact, and im sure who knows? probablly one of these days we'll have reunion like the good old days.

Random thoughts of the Day

It's been a while. I miss my nonsense blog site (lol). It's October and my birthday is fast approaching, gosh another year will welcome me. Here's my plan on the weekend of my birthday. Go to church in the morning for thanksgiving then go treat my family for lunch, probably mmmm to a seafood house or itallian restau i guess? I'm planning to have them go to a nice cozy place that they have never been too. Last year on the day of my birthday I celebrated it with my previous office friends, we had a blast a simple dinner with lots of talks, a never ending stories that we all talked about the past years. I missed them so much. This year I probably won't see them all, mostly everyone is out of the country for greener pasture. How I wish that my country will soon be a better place for everything like during the old days, not just another third world country who sends their sons and daughters abroad to have a greener pasture so to offer a better life for their families *sob*.

What would you feel if you are accused of something you did not do intentionally or let's say someone ask why you do this, that nagging at your back like a Dad scolding his little child? maybe you don't mind.. some feel bad about it... others don't care at all. right? different reaction different persona, truth is I think in every thing that we say or do we should always always consider what others may feel. I believe there's always a better way of saying things without compromising the feeling of other individual. All people are not the same and that is a fact of life.

Ever heard of the book called the secret? I don't know yet what this is all about but I'm planning on reading this on the next couple of days. A friend recommended this before and I forgot about it and just recently someone recommended this book again. I would like to go back in the habbit of reading books once again and reading this book would be a great start.

On diet?!

It's been a while....

It has been more than two weeks since I started my diet plan. So far, I eliminated 10 lbs of body weight (Just diet without exercise). It was a small step but at least I'm stepping up one little step at a time. I really am looking forward to look better and feel better not for anyone else but for my self. My mind is still battling if I'll put my weight here :-) I decided to give a little more time para di naman disgusting..AHahaha

Wish me luck!

My insights about the book im currently reading

It's 1:47 AM and still finding my self writing something about the book I'm currently reading shared by good friend of mine. I am actually in the middle of reading this book "Peaceful Warrior" from Dan Millman, and for those of you wondering why I am writing something when I haven't finished reading it yet. The answer is, I watched the movie already, yeah!,yeah!,yeah! I know it's kinda absurd watching novel based film when you are in the middle of reading it, but I can't help my self encouraging everyone to read the book or perhaps watch the movie, if your not into reading. The movie doesn't use the profound words on the book as a script, I guess the writer decided to make it easy to grasp. Imagine me reading some of the profoud nose bleeding phrases trice just to get the gist of it and internalize it. I'll soon post all my learning from the book, I just hope I'm not gonna be that oblivious from the thoughts to ponder :-P... So far let me share this OST video from the movie "Peaceful Warrior" for those who wanted a copy I can share mine :-P

Pag puno na ang salop...

Ako'y laki sa probinsya meaning ang mga tao samin inde sosyal walang "K" maginarte kaya di ako sanay siguro sa mga sosyal at ibang level ng kaartehan... i.e.

1. Madudumihan ang kotse dapat pag bumaba linisin ito specially kung nakikisakay ka lang..Dahandahan sa pagbukas ng kotse syepmpre nakikisakay ka lang..kulang nalang Wag pindutin ang pwedeng pindutin..

2. Pag aircon ang room wag maghubad ng sapatos kasi ang baho daw ng paa ko specially pag sosyal lang ang nakakaamoy dapat ispray ko ng konti ang perfume ko para mawala ang amoy

3. Wag basain ang sahig ng cr kadiri daw tsaka pag tumae ako tapos sya ang kasunud kadiri daw ang baho

4. Paghinatid ka galing sa long trip dahil pagod sya ibaba ka sa kanto lang which take note pwede naman iandar ng konti kasi kawawa naman ako ang dami kong dala...

5. Pag nag kamali ka ng instruction mag dadabog sa manubela na parang ikaw ang pinaka idiot na tao sa mundo...

Hindi ako mareklamong tao...Kahit kelan inde ako nag rereklamo sa mga sosyal inarte klasmeyt ko nung college at previous office mates...Pero pag napupuno ka pala di madaling makalimot sa lahat lahat... Siguro dapat cowboy lang lagi kasama ko parati yung tipong pwede kang umutut sa tabi nila ang effect ay mag tatawanan lang kayo... kasi pag inde baka maging BP ko ay 200/200.

The past weekend counting days I wanna go home

I haven't shared this yet. I went to Ashville North Carolina to visit the Biltmore Estate with two of my friends apparently I haven't realized that I'll be paying crappy $51 for the entrance fee which frustrates me because my savings got cut off again however to be fair to the kindness of my friends I just stay cool and enjoy the day which happens to be not bad at all. I was amazed by the baltimore mansion it was literally huge, i think I've seen the mansion on several movies like ever after and Richy rich i never imagined I would be seeing it one day.

It was a beautiful day to spend weekend. Gota lots of pictures which tested my modeling skill..ahahaha! here's one sample

The next day Kat flew back home. Early this morning, Stell paid me the big bucks with one box of coins placed in sinusitis med box, that was just sweet of her...Now I got lots of coins to dispose on the next days...I'm planning to eat at chillys and put the coins on the sinus med box and pay my meal.. I pray that the crew will not give me a face upon paying my bill because I did not make a face when I received them...

Email of the day

I'm not usually fan of reading email stuff but this email caught my attention and made my day..I learned something important.. Let me share it to you guys, I so hope you do the same...

You might have read this before but it’s something that’s really worth remembering and
living by… Enjoy life’s little treasuresJ

The Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars and you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Song's for Mama Ester

In Memory of my Mama Ester. This blog of mine was Created Sept 25, 2006. I would like to keep it so I'm putting it here

Each year, 182,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 43,300 die. One woman in eight either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. In addition, 1,600 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 400 will die this year.
liquid crystal about to overflow from the side of my eyes when she let me see the swollen breast on her right and say "konti lang naman yung sugat, anak" My voice was shaking trying not to let her feel my true emotions. But at the back of my mind I know for a fact that it was not just a simple tumor because it was black all over the sides of the breast, it was like rotten tumor outside. There was silence for a couple of minutes and I just ask her if it was painful although I know already the answer, she just said "minsan". I was amazed by her strength and determination, because she can still manage to laugh,cook for me when at home and walk around every morning. What kills me more is my incapability to do more than I could do to help her ease the pain.
After our short conversation, I went online to check for Breast cancer article and read more stuff about it. It crashes my heart when I saw the picture of the actual breast cancer patient and compare it to her... All fears flashes on my consciousness, Hot liquid crystals begin to flow through my cheeks... I went back to her pretending nothing happens. I ask her what does the doctor said about the thing, she said that the doctor informed her that it's stage 4 breast cancer. My heart beats faster but still, I manage to pretend to be OK. I just said God can do miracles and she agreed. She is indeed strong and determined to fight it, We and the rest of our big clan are always there to support her, although we are limited to what we can do BUT God is limitless and I hold on to His miracle...

fact: She is like third mom to me next to her sisters who really helped me understand discipline and love. Please Join me in praying for her miracle and continued determination to fight cancer. She does not want any doctor to touch it nor take any medication except for an ointment and boiled guava leaves, I think I understand her, she thought that we can't afford any chemo session or any expensive medication.
