15 Minutes left before 2008!

As of this time, it is 15 minutes till 2008 comes strutting in. Before my ears split from the powerful fireworks from the outside, I wanted to properly say goodbye to 2007.

Recap from the current year: First New Year with Hon Hon, First Valentine's Day, First Time we spent his Birthday together, Lester graduated from high school, met new friends Sai, Che, Clem, Aprelle, Nikki, Sir Melan, Michi, Marky, Norreen, Stan. Got separated from friends Chay, Jayvee, Christy. Maam Kit conceived Ieuan Joshua, Besty conceived Terrence, First birthday of goddaughters Avi and Aia. First Anniversary at Starcity. Went to Tagaytay for my birthday, went to Puerto Galera for a vacation, Enchanted Kingdom visit in a long time, First Christmas that I went generous with family and friends. Second time at Starcity for the year.

Im not sure what else I missed, but this year has made me learn the ups and downs. Hopefully, this coming year would be luckier. Im really crossing my fingers for it.

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

I'll just keep this short. My mom is messing up with me already. She made me help cook the New Year's feast today. I am so pressured already.

So again, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!!!!!

Hope this will be a blessed year for all of us. Goodluck guys and be safe!!!! :D

Weekend Sickness

Ive been in bed the whole day. Been experiencing cramps all over my body, like Ive been possessed or something. Apparently, this came from the Influenza Vaccine that the Company provided yesterday. And the worst part was, we were supposed to see each other today. So I just drown my sorrows to my Grey's Anatomy Series, and I'm proud to say that I finally completed watching them. Yay!

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

The New Year's Toast happened successfully yesterday. Maam DJS thanked everyone for a job well done for 2007 and she hopes for a better 2008. I actually believe that this coming year might even be luckier. And for myself actually. LOL. Well at least I hoped so. It has always been a series to me. Like Ive been lucky last 2006, and not so lucky this 2007. So a pattern would have to be a lucky lucky 2008 :D

Afterwards, went to Shang last night for dinner. Had a feast at House of Minis where they have like the biggest steaks. Yum. It definitely is the favorite foodstop from now on. LOL.

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

Anyhow, I have to go rest if I want to be not lucid tomorrow. My head still pounds. huhuhuhu.

Muah! Check me out at new year! :D

Last Workday for 2007

This marks the last day of work for the year. Hopefully, a new career path would blossom on the forthcoming year.

As an employee, I must say that I have been blessed to have another year in my company. Lets just say that I have grown in the business. I may not be good in their numbers, but performance wise, I could say I did well.

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

This morning, Maam Kit gathered the whole team and congratulated us for a job well done. Then she commenced Alex and I because the team still went dynamic even when she was out for her maternity leave. Its very rewarding when your efforts have been recognized. And heartwarming at the same time because you know you did good.

As for this coming year, CCD has definitely a lot of good plans since the projects we have started became THAT fruitful. And I am definitely psyched because we have a good lineup of what's in store for the following year. Yay!

Will celebrate New Year's Toast later. It has been tradition in this company to gather altogether and welcome the following year with champagne and overflowing foods. And today, it would really feel complete because our team is bigger now, and we've got lots to celebrate.

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

Ive been catching this big fish on the internet. Sadly, there aren't schedules yet. The last time we went there, we have witnessed sparks from America. I don't know, maybe it'll be open this January or something. I am sooo excited already. Yeah, I'm talking about this. I don't know, this is one tradition I wouldn't dare miss.

I'm also excited to use my 10% off at All Flip flops from my Belle De Jour Planner. Hahaha. Well, that is, if I could find a design I would really love to have . rofl. But I'm not one of them yet. Maybe when I could find a really nice one, I would reconsider. haha.

I have to go get ready for the toast and all. Catch y'all later. Muah! :D

As The Year Ends...

I'm posting resolutions as early as now. LOL...

1. Stop binging- this is really hard for me considering that family loves to eat and office mates can swallow a chunk in five minutes. Peace. :D

2. Save up- My allowance is bigger than what I get from the office. JOKE! Seriously, I need to save up so I could buy the lappie I wanted or the Ipod that's been reserved to me already. Or even a new chip for our Magic Sing. Problem is, when I already have money, I don't buy them anymore. Weird no?

3. Read more books- I have like gazillion books still untouched. I buy books almost everytime we go to the mall, but they're like stocked at my bookcase. But they're a good investment though, I just hope I would have time to read them. LOL.

4. Stop procrastinating- Do you have like a day when you feel like bumming and end up not having any work done? Or you keep on telling yourself that you're gonna do this thing but eventually, you are not in the mood for it? I have experienced that, a LOT OF TIMES. And the results are gory. I don't even wanna look. harharhar.

5. Go places- Not just physically but also career wise. Let's just say that I am HAPPY with my current work, but sometimes, I love the rush of things. I wanted to try the unpredictable scenario where you actually have to cover an event or write because you are born with it. Or even being in the limelight and having to help other people. I need change. And I need to do something out there. (Dr. Bailey mode. LOL)

6. Travel- This year has been blessed with a LOT of travel opportunities. Since I met Sai and Jen, we were able to go anywhere we like. Plus, having Hon Hon with me even made it a breeze. This coming year, I plan to go, feel, see, touch and hear different spots to make me feel really at home. I thrive to ride a plane again. Or wait for the sunshine while cruising. I love adventure. Definitely a mind-blowing experience of a lifetime.

7. Do things people never expected me to do- It doesn't mean drugs, alcohol or something, but I feel as if I have always been in my comfort zone. Like when I cut my hair short this year, people have commented or was surprised that my uber long hair was gone. But I'm not planning on cutting mine yet, I need to wait. So what I meant about doing things people never expected me to do was like to bungee jump or water ski, do rappelling, go snorkeling, or just like last night, I tried the new ride, Star Flyer, at StarCity, and it was one heck of an adventure. I didn't even closed my eyes because I don't wanna miss the thrill of the ride. So kewl.

8. Collect memories- Imagine dying people, waiting for their time to go to heaven. In relative to this, I plan to seize every moment possible, because memory could back away from you. My journal is foolproof of every recollection of the day. But since I started my, or our scrapbook this year, might as well follow another one.

9. Trusting people- I admit, this is the hardest and toughest resolution I would ever have. See, when it comes to the big T-word, I follow this rule: Give a hundred percent to everyone, but when disappointment comes to close, it eventually loses up to the brink of it. And because I have been disappointed a lot of times, I lose hope in people, that trusting them would be the biggest mistake I would ever do. So now, I'm trying to have them into clean slate, give them the benefit of the doubt and start over again. And I promise to start with YOU, because I love you.

10. Love myself- Its not about vanity, but its all about respecting myself and my beliefs. Sometimes, I tend to push my feelings away just to please other people. But I wanted to be tougher, to stop crying when its time to stop, to start believing in the things I need to believe in, to love as if there's no tomorrow, and to break free from the hurts of the year. Again, this is tougher than being said, but in the process, I know I would be able to make it.

...And they say promises are made to be broken? Maybe, maybe not. Though I'm still hoping for the best. And a good year ahead.

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

Christmas had been fun. Mom, Lester and I went to church early. After the Homily, Father asked the crowd to sing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus. The tingles went up to my spine. I don't know, it just feels magical.

During lunch, my Titas and Titos aren't at Manila yet, so my Mom allowed me to excuse myself to go to Hon Hon's place. Went to Ate Grace's house and played with Mico. Had a sushi feast too. Yum! Sad because Sophia was sleeping until we left to go to our house.

When Hon and I got to our house, the Casem clan was already there. We had our gift giving and a magic sing marathon. Bezzie also went to our house afterwards. At twelve, I was already sleeping. When I woke up, Tita PIn told me that they were still up at 3AM singing. Sinamantala nila na natulog ako para ma-hog ang mic! ROFL. They know they couldnt use the Magic Sing when I'm around. Plus they're having measly points compared to my 90+ scores. Hahahahahaha!

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

Yesterday, I took a leave from work because Mom asked me to come with them to StarCity. We were there at 5pm and the place is packed already. I was tasked to babysit Edmund so he could ride the kiddie stuffs. But I enjoyed it, super makulit lang talaga siya. And he was scared to go to the dark places. Even Land of the Giants. ROFL.

When he was already tired, asked my brother and two cousins to ride the new roller coaster, Star Flyer, where you would be inverted as well. At first, we thought it was THAT SCARY, but after trying it, I must say that it was more enjoyable than Space Shuttle or Zyklon Loop. They even put back the ride where they will spin you while you're standing. I forgot the name. The whole family even went to the Ballet Show. *frustrations*. I wanted to study ballet when I was a kid. I remember having to do pirouettes and stuff when I was younger. But my Mom didn't enroll me in one. She made me do swimming lessons instead. *gaah*. Oh, Edmund and I went to Snow World. He was fascinated with the ice sculptures. It was different from this one attraction they had before because you could slide on this one. And you could take a lot of pictures, unlike the the latter. Super family fun! :D

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

I have to go already since I have already summed up the adventures I had during then uber LONG break. Another one's not due for a day, plus we'll have the New Year's Toast at the office tomorrow. Yay!

Bye and Cheers to y'all!

Season's Greetings to All !!!!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!!

Since were minutes away from Christmas, I just wanted to greet everyone a merry, prosperous and loving Jesus' Birthday to all!

If I were given one of the few Christmases, this one would be a bit happy and sad at the same time. Because our Dad is not in the country right now, it would feel incomplete. But that doesn't mean it would have to keep our hopes down right? Whats important is that we have each other and loving each other more every year. Awww..

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

This will not be a very long post since I am feeling the clock ticking to twelve already. Plus I have a schedule which was ruined, about minutes ago, but I have to stick on my mindset right now. Like I really have to stay positive about it.

Sad lang because the whole family's going to Starcity at the 26th. And we have work that day already. And I'm not allowed to take a leave, or something. Maybe I'll just meet them or anything. But above all, I'm still happy because the Casem Clan will spend the night here. Yay!

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

Again, We wish you a MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS! Love yah guys! :D

Cheers to Best Friends Forever!

Being in an All-girl school makes you have a lot of instant gurlfriends. Not only that, you are not that intimidated by men because you know hon to mingle with all of them.

Last night, Hon and I had the chance to see my gurlfriends again, and my best boy buds. I'm so happy that we've finally get the chance to be complete again. And I'm so ecstatic because Kstin had the chance to fly back to Manila from New Jersey. It just feels sad because Tats couldn't come with us. Though she promised to come here at her birthday. Yay!

So there, met at Starbucks RobPlace Manila, Xzeno time again for some people (meaning an hour late! Grrh), circled Adriatico Area (because JN couldn't remember where Clubbers is located, got my first taste of beer but followed with a whole lot of Iced Tea, and danced the night away. Thinking about it, I am not used to going to bars. Maybe because I'm not a night person. I'm kind of like the reading, sleeping kind of girl. I don't give a damn if some people might think of me boring because I don't drink, but this is me. I have my reasons. And what doesn't degrade me wouldn't hurt right?

Seriously, I missed the gang. It has been almost a year since we've had a reunion. Plus this time, we are more complete. Plus, they're the kind of people who really knew me well. To the extent that they fought with me when I was having guy problems, school panic attacks and all. And now, I'm glad that most of us have become great professionals now. Bien even had her pregnancy and being a land flight attendant. Nice.

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

Earlier, Hon and I went to MOA to have lunch and his interview. He got in already! Super galing! I'm uber proud of him. Then went to the World Trade Bazaar because Hon's friends- Migs and Diane- has a stall there. Saw Chynna Hortaleza because she also sells there, and some Channel 7 stars have booths there. But I'm not really into it because I am so loyal so ABSCBN. LOL. :D

So there, bought gifts that Kstin could bring to States for her and Tats. And I bought the UST shirt Ive been eyeing at Multiply. Then went straight to Robplace to kill time and meet Xzenos.

Ive got to go. Too sleepy to write some more. Nytie

19th Monthsary

HAPPY 19th MONTHSARY HON HON!!!

Open Letter:

Dear Hon Hon, We both know that the past month have been a little too hard on us. You leaping a big step out of your comfort zone brought us to frustrations and so many trials to speak. But I wanted to thank you and commend us both because we chose to stick with each other. I hope we'd get back to the nook and stay there, because we both know were made to be together. :D Love you so much.

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

Will go to Makati later to meet Hon Hon. Because I got the prize money from the contest, we will be having a feast today and do my last minute shopping for a gift to give to my Mom. Or maybe we could go find Mercie and look at the bazaar we went to last week.

LRT sucked yesterday. Also felt stupid because I dragged an officemate to go with me at Taft Station. When we got there, the announcer said that there was a technical problem at R. Papa. Hence, we were forced to ride a jeepney. But since everyone also rides the same thing, I dragged him to MOA so we could have the fx there to Lawton. Stressful adventure. Promised myself I wouldn't force anyone to go home with me anymore. ROFL. XD

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

Maam Kit talked to yesterday about being the apple of the eye of our Company's president. She said that Sir Jun was happy the way I sing or even I walk. Maybe he thinks of me as a kid or something. ROFL. But then, I don't really have so much to complain because I am flattered to be one. Coolness.

Its our last day before Christmas Vacation comes. Am so having sooo much fun right now. Got so many gifts. XD

Have to go. MMuah!

A Series of Firsts...

Last night, FC Christmas Party was held at Jade Palace. Why a series of firsts? Here goes:

1. Was my first time to design a stage. Kinda became the party planner and stuff. I am not usually hands on these kinds of things plus there are 200+ employees of the company, by which will decide if the stage was cute or not. haha.

2. The first time Hon's camera bailed out on me. After taking like a hundred pictures already, the memory card incurred an error, thus, no pictures from the cam to relinquish the night. Good thing I have my trusty phone (VGA, but uber clear pics! Yay!) and the whole FC staff to take pictures of my performance.

3. The first time I won a singing contest. After years of joining singing contests, its either my voice is not powerful enough to move the judges or I'm plain bland. But this night, my partner and I are raring to win the rut. It was kinda my momentum and no one could stop us both. And the song was THAT powerful to let us win FIRST PRIZE! I am sooo overwhelmed.

Now if you see me in the hallway, they now congratulate me. One even made Bukas na lang Kita Mamahalin the "Song of the Day". How freaking cool is that?!? Oh and one of my bosses is the Star of the Night! Congrats Sir Melan. :D

Good food and good companion. It was a really fun night that Sir JAAC, our President even gave an extra 15k for the three contests. I have so many moolah already. ROFL. XD

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

Also had our exchange gift yesterday. I asked for a pink flats within the 300pesos limit, my Secret Santa, didn't have time to go to the mall, so he gave me 1grand instead. hahahaha. Scored two in one night!

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

Since there are many absent people today, due to lateness of the party yesterday, our operators are absent. I got the chance to sit at the lobby and answer calls. Now I know how call center agents feels. And it isn't even a half of what they do. Especially stressful when you have a splitting headache. Argh.

What do you know, I got home at one am, why? because I didn't go home immediately. Would you believe that Divi's Night Market is still open at twelve? Weird.

So there, two days of excitement. Gotta go. muah!

Revisiting My Alma Mater

Because of our company party, I wouldn't be able to go to Paskuhan tonight. I couldn't see the fireworks and I couldn't freaking see Jam, Nina and Brent altogether. Its either Nina and I or Brent and moi. I feel so depressed.

Since I couldn't go there, no one said about going there prior to that date right? So armed with whatever I have in mind, and a good excuse to Nina for being late (though it isn't really an excuse because traffic was WAAAAY BAAAD!), went inside the Main Building to meet Nina and her family. And I have to gift Avi, my goddaughter, her Christmas Present.

After her Civil Law Idol Contest, was engrossed by the huge presents beside the Benavides Monument a.k.a. Lover's Lane, went cooing with Avi and looking at the dancing lights up the Main Building's Cross, took a lot of pictures at the giant Christmas tree and passed by what used to be called Colayco Park (I think its called Roxas Quadriangle now, Im uncertain about it. LOL)

Fun night. I just hope we'd be complete again. Love yah friends. :D

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

My partner and I are collaborating today. We have to practice three songs for the contest later. But it is supposed to be fun, not serious. Though I think he and I are getting along well, albeit the worst things Ive heard from other people about him. haha.

I dont know how to get home later. It'll be to late after the party. Plus, I dont really want Hon Hon to send me home while he will be going home late as well. Mom couldn't fetch me since there's no one to drive and my Tito is at Nova today. Oh well.

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

Kstin is wanting to go to Pansol for the Xzeno get together on Saturday. Because Sofitel is fully booked already, we have to settle on other plans. Some have confirmed, but like myself, her plan is too sudden. I just hope my Mom says yes to it.

I have to go decorate the room at Jade Palace today for the party. OB na naman ako. LOL.

Hafta go. luvyalotz.:D

Secret Santa

When we were still young, we loved to believe that Santa Claus will come in our house, when midnight strucks, check if we have been naughty or nice, tiptoe inside our house and place his gift inside our hanging socks.

At five years old, I thought I could see Santa Claus put the Mickey Mouse watch Ive been asking my parents for so many months already. When my Mom asked me to sleep, I stayed awake because I wanted to catch Santa putting his gift inside my striped socks. That morning I was asked my Mom a lot of questions how the gift I asked for was already inside my socks when I haven't seen him drop by. She said that he got delayed because the reindeers got the directions of our house wrong. LOL.

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

Now that we've grown up, gone are the days when we should expect a gift or two. Because if you do, you're already lucky that some people have thought of you special to even put your name on their lists.

Last night, I was touched by one segment in Noypi. They asked this kid to pretend to get lost and ask the people living in the sidewalk if they could give him a place to stay. How thoughtful it is that they provided him shelter and food and even volunteered to find his mom. And there was this guy who even insisted on giving him the last piece of food he is eating.

Fortunately for us, even though there are poor Filipinos, we never fail to give our whole to the people we love the most. Life may be rough on us a lot of times, but we strive hard to forget the hardships even for a while, just to feel happy. And that is the best spirit we could ever feel not only this Christmas, but for the whole year.

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

Went to Divi yesterday to shop for our Company Party's stage decorations. Imagine being there at 4:30 PM and arriving at the decorations shop at 5:30. Bloody heck! Hon Hon was even tired of walking. But the nice thought was, Ive seen something I have been eyeing for days there, for a really really low price. I would probably go back after I dispose my old one. Uber excited. :D

When I got home, Mom helped me do the decorations so I would just have to bring it tomorrow. I wanna cry already. I have to practice with the obnoxious guy later, go to UST to see Nina's performance and finalize the decors today. Hope I could still live. huhuhuhuhu.

Gotta go so I could release the health tips for my email blast. 'Later. :D

Dashing and Dreamy..

I have a new mantra for the next year. Its gonna be tough and definitely a little rough, but I will refrain from sidetracking starting now. Not tomorrow, not next week. I'm sure about it now. :D Plus I have to think of other people's feelings now because its either I'm too sensitive or insensitive. Either way, I'm not that prone to change. I just wanted everything to be better. I would also stop procrastinating. I'm always the princess of that. Lazy brat. LOL.

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

Had dinner with the team last Friday. It was a sudden thing because they keep on rescheduling it based on CorPlan. Anyhow, the foods are uber yummy and I had sushi overload once again. Hon Hon was so envious that night. But the good thing is, the dinner made everyone in the team more closer. And since there are new people in it, we discovered their personalities more, like how Aprelle couldn't stop talking or Clem gives her food to Ate Che, and how generous Sir Melan is to foot half of the bill. Hahahaha.

Speaking of parties,HR 's making me go to Divi this afternoon to do the decorations on Wednesday. Eversince they saw me doing different stuffs regarding design, times like these happen. So weird. But its okay considering that I wont have a hard time going home. LOL.

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

Went to Mall of Asia last Saturday to buy Secret Santa's baby a gift, or rather two gifts. We were also supposed to watch Hitman, but it isn't shown already so we rather went to see Enchanted instead. It was sooo cute! The movie itself tells you that even reality couldn't ruin a good fairy tale story. I couldn't help singing with Princess Giselle and oogle my eyes out by Dr. McDreamy himself, Patrick Dempsey, as Robert in the story. Plus, Prince Edward, James Marsden, played the third wheel again. Sad...

After the movie, went to SMX to look at the Lifestyle Network Bazaar. We were so dumbfounded when we got there. Apparently, the Bazaar is something for the popular and rich people. Although it was nice, and found really interesting stuff, we shouldve gone to World Trade Bazaar instead. My Gawd.

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

As for yesterday, I finally finished Seasons 1 and 2 of Grey's Anatomy. Am currently into the Third Season of the series. Had my Sunday fix with Meredith, Cristina, Izzie, George, Alex, McDreamy, McSteamy and McVet. And I am so Mchappy and Mcwanting to Mcspend my Mctime with McThem again. So Mcfabulous! hehehehehe.

Bum Bum Bum. Cant wait for the long weekend. Gotta go. MMMMMMMcMuah!

Lucky Or Not?

I don't know if I got lucky this time.

On our Christmas Party, I would join this Videoke Contest, but its a duet. I was paired to this guy who could sing well.. Lucky right?

WRONG!

...because he is this obnoxious sonofagun who doesn't even respect women. Its a matter of principle, but I guess I just have to be professional about it and just have fun. After all, it is a party and I should enjoy it. Win or lose. Or whatever. :D

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

I'm so ecstatic about the party on Wednesday. Of course, it would not be the same without Ms. Ivy and Chay but since the team is bigger now, we wouldn't have to seat in with other departments anymore. Plus we get to participate in almost all contests there is. So cute! :D I was planning to buy another yard of feather for my dress but that depends on whether I have time to go out or not. LOL.

Though I really needed to buy gifts for Mom, Lester, my titas and my Secret Santa, which should be a piece of cake right now. haha.

Maam Kit is trying to guess our Secret Santas earlier. So cute. She is even worried that our Santa will recognize her in the wishlist because of her supposed gift. Ang kulit.

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

Tonight will be a pig out day for us. We'll be going to Dad's Mega for our CCD Christmas Party. Plus we'll have Sir Ronnie with us. And probably will never be a dull night for us because he would like have sooo many stories to tell and gossips to reveal. Fun night it is. Yay!

It is weekend again. I love Fridays. It makes you feel like you're gonna be relaxing again and you really have to maximize the weekends because it is YOUR time of the week to do nonsense stuffs or you could also try to be productive.

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

Watched PBB last night. Baron is uber DISGUSTING. I mean, no offense, but I don't think he'd ever change. And he really must be put into rehab or something already. He doesn't even know what he's doing anymore. Take it from me. Ive seen my uncle drunk and he behaved a little like that of Baron's behaviour last night. I just don't get what good it'll bring to their body. Stupid people.

Gotta Go. Later peeps! :D

Hooked

I'm so hooked yahoo news now. Maybe because it is the only news feed I could look at due to the hectic schedules and the news after the prime time shows. That's how late I get home. haha. Anyhow, I liked the article about fastfoods and processed foods that causes lung cancer. I don't know, maybe because my Lola died to that disease. I mean, she never smokes, drinks or anything. She's the epitome of healthy. I just missed her. Its our third Christmas without her.

Today, they have this news about the Hilton's being paid $500,000 to party. How cool is that? But definitely outrageous. So here's a thought, why not let Paris Hilton host a party at Smokey Mountain or Payatas and give out the $500,000 instead of getting some stuck up rich kids drunk right?

Last night at Bandila, it was reported that the Space Shuttle was stuck before it could turn to the loop. Bloody hell! We just went there last month! Plus Sai, Norman and I even tried that ride. I always thought EK rides were safe. I was even challenging Hon Hon to ride with me but he was scared. Fortunately, the kids who were riding the attraction got out after One and a half hour. How weird is that. Good thing they didn't get stuck at the actual loop, or we might have a whole lot of problems.

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

Hon Hon, Brenti and I met at Glorietta last night. Said he needs help to buy Avi a Christmas Present. And the proud Ninong that he is, wanted to buy something nice for his goddaughter, with my opinion on it. BTW, this is the second chance that we spent time together. We even went to Quiapo with him. Funny thing was when the bus passed by UST, we were both oogling because we haven't been to our school for a long time now. I mean, he haven't been there since time immemorial. haha. Then they both took me home. Nice.

Kstin is on the way home to the Philippines right now. Or something. Haven't received a text from her yet, but she'd be here today or tomorrow since she has this thing to attend on Saturday.

Aside from the Xzeno's Party, CCD will FINALLY do the party tomorrow night at Dad's Mega. Bad because it is based on a first come-first served policy at Mega, unlike at EDSA, but the latter's already fully booked. Good thing Sir Melan handled the call for it.

On Tuesday, Jam and I will meet to support Nina at her Civil Law Idol Contest. We settled for her to sing "Love Will Show Us Everything" by Jennifer Love Hewitt. I don't know, we just loved IF ONLY that much. I am so proud of my Mommy-Law Student-Singer-Kumare friend. After all, she gave her all-out support to me during our kABog Contest on our 4th year. Plus she made me a totally new person, confidence and all. Love you Nins!

Speaking of contests, I joined the Videoke Competition at the office. We just don't know who will be our tandem yet. Haay, he or she should really be good in singing. I don't want anyone to throw tomatoes at us or something. LOL.

Have to go. Muah!

Boob Tube Affair

At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."-- Meredith Grey, GREY'S ANATOMY.

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

I'm having Grey's Anatomy Overload. I sooo love the show, plus the quotes at the beginning and end of every episode. I also found a website about it. Here I am, babbling over a series again. I don't know, I just seem to get stuck with it.

Finally had the chance to go home early and caught Amazing Race 12 at Studio 23 last night. And proudly, my bet, dad and daughter tandem Ronald and Christina got into first place at the Croatia leg. Azaria and Hendekea were eliminated by the grandpa-grandson team. Uber cool. I wanna try rappelling. I don't know, its the extreme things that make you feel high. On the other hand, Nathan and Jennifer are into bickering again. I asked Hon if he wanted us to join something like that, he said that we might argue a lot since were kind of opposites. I don't know. hehehe.

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

PBB on the other hand, continues to be on rage. Gladys Guevarra went out of the house for good. I honestly think it would be better for her. Better because its not healthy to see her inside the house. She's acting weird and stupid. Really. Ethel came back instead. At most parts, I think I might like her better than Gladys. Bleep. LOL

I'm so freaking bored. Although when go home, I feel as if I have too much things to do. So weird. Its not the same Christmas Spirit I had last year.

Have to go. Mmmmuah!

You love, You Learn...


My Lakbayan grade is C-!

How much of the Philippines have you visited? Find out at Lakbayan!

Got this quiz at Multiply from Badet. Sadly, I haven't visited much of the Philippines yet. But in due time, I would travel and learn from the different cultures of the world. Maybe someday when I'm filthy rich enough to circumnavigate the globe. LOL. Basically, the blue marks are just the ones Ive visited. uh,oh. :D

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

Mercie and I went to this Basement Bazaar at Paseo last night. Had two tops from Freego for less than 300 pesos. And there are also appliances and other original but cheap stuffs. Promised Hon we'll go there by Friday to check out other items.

Dad hasn't called me yet about the Ipod I was asking him to buy for me. Wala lang, na-e-excite lang ako. LOL.

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

I'm starting to read "Love in The Time of Cholera". I first saw the book at Serendipity. Its where Sara Thomas (Kate Beckinsale) wrote her phone number so that Jonathan Trager (John Cusack) could call her and see if fate could work between the two of them. Loved that movie. So anyhow, I'm currently finding the book intriguing and very romantic. :D

Speaking of addictions, I'm on the second season of Grey's Anatomy Marathon already. I am so hooked on the lessons and quotes from Meredith Grey. It could actually touch whoever hard-headed people there might be. And sometimes, you cant help but to relate on how she feels and the fact that she strives and tries real hard to stay away from a great love. Why could I relate to it? Read my past entries at blogspot where I am head over heels madly in love with this guy but knowing I cant have him. Though now, he is and always be my McDreamy. Of course, without an Addison ruining my fantasyland. LOL.

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

Back then, I know that I am one of the romantics. I loved reading novels about love and passion. You could only rarely see me reading sci-fi or adventure books. When I was in High School, my library card was filled with Love Stories, Sweet Dreams and Sweet Valley. I knew how to woo someone, and be wooed by someone else. I make love letters as if it were the most natural thing in this world.

But when you grow up, you realize that love, like life, demands great responsibility. I didn't know back then that accepting your partner's faults requires great patience. Or that when you're completely opposites, it may also work, but you also have to work hard to meet each other's end.

So how do you know its truly love? It is when you could wait, even after fifty years, for him to come up to you and tell you that even if he wasted fifty years of not being together, just having each other for the remaining years of your life is the best one you could ever live.

...Though I'm just happy that Hon woke up after four years, because fifty years would also mean torture. hahaha. I'm kidding.

Gotta go. *tight hug*!

I Jump, You Jump Remember?

When I was a kid, my Dad made me play at the animal statues near Luneta. There was this big Hippo where you could exit at its mouth. He then wanted me to go out of its mouth, just for the heck of it. Since I was only four that time, I was so scared that the Hippo would shut its mouth up and swallow me whole. My Dad was yelling that I should go out with its mouth, but I still hesitated that I went out of its back. I realized that even back then, I still don't know how to trust people.

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

I have this friend in the office, and another colleague that experienced a difficulty recently. When he thought she was a friend, or she considers him as a friend, she said something that made my friend lose his trust on her. Now they are not on speaking terms and like myself, he has this problem of losing one's trust when someone breaks it even for the first time.

So laying all my cards, I couldn't regain trust that easily. No matter how many times you could prove it to me, I still couldn't get it right. I feel as if my feelings are the only one I could lean on to and getting hurt is the last option I wanted to get. But I want to learn. And hopefully, I'm wishing to get a beginning with no fears and a clean slate.

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

Last weekend, I finally finished my Christmas shopping, Hon finally got his Starbucks Planner, I get to have my book, or rather books, met up an old friend and cried so hard it put me to sleep. What used to be the most perfect Christmas gift for me, which is love and peace, might be gone then and there. Because definitely, I'm not at peace, and I'm could not feel love right now. Maybe it'll be better tomorrow, well, that is if he dares to let his pride down and treat me as an equal and not a competition. Or maybe I'm scared that ex-bestfriend might be right. Though I truly believe that he is the one for me.

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

One helluva Christmas isn't it? Hope it'll be a happy holiday. But still, that depends on what will happen next.

Last Day Madness Continues

Ever had a feeling that you woke up one morning and had that cheerful face in you but it all ends up being worse than you expected?

I had that Friday outlook in my head. No one could stop me from smiling because I could finally have time to marathon my Grey's Anatomy DVDs, fix my things and start to be a bum. BUT this girl started to throw dagger looks that I never dare mind since Monday. I didn't make it a big issue because I thought she was still hurt from what happened last week. And besides, I didn't want to get involved in her issue with this other colleague. I WAS SO WRONG.

This morning is the last straw. I didn't confront her because I didn't want to have any issue in the office. As far as I'm concerned, I never make enemies in the workplace because it would ruin my professionalism and mood in the office. I was hoping to tell my boss but I didn't want her to get into trouble either. I just hope she gets around because as far as I know, she used to be my friend.

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

Jeni already got her Belle De Jour Planner. I am sooo happy for her. Even Mariz wanted to have the same planner and got jealous when I told her that I already got one. Said she'll visit one of their venues. Anyway, I am sooo loving mine and have already scribbled some stuffs in it. On the other hand, Hon Hon has to complete six stickers more for his Starbucks Planner. Uber nice.

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

Am currently writing a news article for the company. I missed doing news and business articles already. I'm just so glad that MST's giving me these kind of opportunity. And it'll speak well for my portfolio. When I plan to really jump into a journalism career after a year or two.

I have to go already. Couldn't settle for a long post since I'm on a dumps today. People do suck sometimes.

On Professions and Being Professional...

Got this in my email this morning during my usual coffee fix. Super funny anecdote from Kuya Niel. I couldn't help but think about it. This is a joke about the Peninsula Siege last Thursday. Cant believe they could pull out a joke just like this for it.

Laugh aloud guys.

NOW IT CAN BE TOLD . . .
NISA declassifies Intel Info so the public may know.


TOP TEN REASONS WHY TRILLIANES & COMPANY PACKED UP

1) Not even his mother joined them
2) Oakwood had a better lobby
3) CNN was not there to cover it (I know this is a joke but CNN did cover it)
4) The hotel had run out of halo-halo
5) The APC's were parked in the lobby and not the parking lot
6) Trillianes realized being teargassed was not part of his mandate as senator.
7) Guingona thought it was an anti-Erap, or pro-Erap pardon rally, whatever...
8) Surrender was better than the company of Fr. Robert Reyes.
9) Trillianes noticed people were crying not because of the tear gas but because of him
10) Even GMA was beginning to look better the longer they stayed

TOP TEN REASONS WHY THEY SHOULD HAVE GONE TO VICTORIA COURT
INSTEAD

1) They were only gonna stay for a 'short time' anyway
2) Free parking at Victoria Court
3) They could have wet the towels in the jacuzzi to combat tear gas
4) There are no wedding receptions in Victoria Court. (only honeymoons)
5) It always has more people than Manila Pen
6) The APC won't know which garage to park in
7) The ceiling mirrors would have thrown off the raiding party.
8) ABS-CBN could have done an episode of XXX and The Buzz while covering the coup
9) "What happens in Victoria Court stays in Victoria court"
10) It's a better place to get screwed

LOL.

But seriously, thinking about what Trillanes did is one big laughingstock. That thing he pulled last week will make the other countries think of us downright funny, and our leaders a big joke. Imagine him, a senator, humiliated in front of the world. Really, that is what you voted for? Shocking. tsk tsk tsk.

I can only see Professor Trillana's humor coming already. Too bad I'm not in his class anymore. Because even though we all sort of wanted to "die" at PolDy, I am still amused in his antics and views about the Philippine politics.

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

For all I know, this country has a lot of potential to become big, but then we screw it all up. Remember the Desperate Housewives' sarcasm towards our doctors? We all fought for our medical practitioners and made ABC apologize and stuff, but we couldn't even eliminate what we call "University of Recto". I mean, for a thousand and a half pesos, you could already have a fake diploma with a seal, tower high grades in a transcript and everything they could do fake. I think the Americans got that notion about us through Recto. I mean, there's piracy, and there's being straightforward fake. There's idolizing, and there's being a huge copycat.

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

I have this friend who wanted to go overseas to work. He said he's planning to go to Australia and earn big bucks. Sadly, he would have to work in an upholstery shop. Imagine my shock after hearing it from a college graduate in one of the known schools in the Philippines, just because he's getting a measly pay. I have nothing against working abroad. My father is a Seaman and he earns more than any regular employee in the Philippines, though he graduated as a Marine Engineer and he still practiced it but I find some a waste of talent for the people who have graduated in their own field.

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

I'm so proud of Hon and his friends. They're trying to set up a company where they will build, design and maintain corporate websites. Hope they'd do good on it. He said I could also contribute if they needed a copy editor or someone who would do proofs. I was maybe thinking freelance writing since Maam Kit has offered me one before, but I'm not yet confident on my writing. Maybe I have to review my Strunk and White all over again. BTW, I saw a new edition of it. Maybe I could buy one for my library :D

Have to go already. Muah!

Costume Crazy..

Ive finally settled on a costume for our Company's Hat Christmas Party. YAY! hehehe.

Because Mom bought me a dress, I would wear it, plus the hat that I bought last year at Grotto, put some flowers and a large feather in it and I'm gonna be Audrey Hepburn's "My Fair Lady". :D I hope I could find an umbrella like hers, but I think some fancy umbrellas would do. Nice huh? To give you the visuals, this is my inspiration for it. :D

So cute right? My Mom has full of ideas about it. Plus she helped me pick out some stuff to use. Now I have to scour at Divi for the feathers and all. And Hon and I will go to Arranque to buy fishes for their aquarium.

On the other hand, Dad made me canvass for the Ipod I requested him to buy. He said that if he couldn't buy one in Malaysia, he'd just give me the money for it. I'm still looking for a reasonable price, but honestly, I would want him to buy instead because I would be discouraged if I would have to pay with the money he'd give me. Argh, sometimes, I couldn't understand myself too. Nyarnyarnyar.

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

Missed me yesterday? hehe, just kidding. Ive been on leave. Maam Kit let me file a day-off because I still have three left and its not convertible to anything. So Hon and I spent the day together. We also went to RobPlace Ermita because I really missed the place. Back in college, there are three malls I used to hang out to, SM Manila, RP Ermita and on 4th year, at SM San Lazaro because it is situated near UST. So when SMSL was built, I rarely go to RP. SO much for my mall hopping days. But these days, I wanted to go to San Agustin Church again. I dont know, maybe it'll help Hon and I to realize what we have before and revisited where it all started. I just cant believe that it has been four long years ago.

Maybe one weekend, we'll be back there. And also go to Intramuros because I haven't been there for a while.

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

Anyhow, I'm uber excited for Paskuhan. I just hope I could see Brenti, Jam, Badet and Mommy Nina there. Brenti said he'd take a leave. I would be rushing to go there since I dont wanna miss the fireworks display. (haha, hindi na namin tuition ang pinapalipad nila sa ere. LOL) Seriously now, I miss my friends. And I have to buy a gift for my goddaughter Avi na rin before Mommy Nins and I meet again. hehe.

Gotta go. Its like 10 degrees in the office today. Muah!

Cleaning Out The Closet

What happened in Makati last Thursday was somewhat a big downfall for the country. Thankfully, it was over before it even caused a lot of problems.

But even though curfew sucked, Hon and I still went to MOA so I could buy him his Christmas gift. And he's wearing it right now. hehe.

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

Usually when vacation comes, Mom always make us clean our closets and drawers because there might be chances to see old but usable clothes for her charity. See, Mama works as a school nurse near the Smokey Mountain and most of their students live there. So whenever we could empty out our closets, were hoping that we could somehow clothe those who are in need of them.

This Friday, Mama made us do the usual tradition again. Not only did I have the chance to clean my room, but I also made such a difference to the kids who are less fortunate. I remember my friend Shang, her dream goal is to put up a nursing home for the kids. Maybe someday, I could plan on that too. Hopefully. :D

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

After cleaning te house, Mama and her friend, Tita Yoly dragged me to Divi to look for gifts and clothes to wear for our respective parties to attend. 168 was so packed that day and they have this huge "pansit" at the foodcourt where maybe a family could share for only less than a hundred pesos. For the numerous times Ive been there, that was something new to me. After that, I was lucky to find not just one, but two, UBER cheap dresses to wear for the Christmas. My dilemma was finally alright. Now I have to figure out which design to use for the hat I'm gonna wear.

See, Divi is like a second home to me. I remember when I was still a kid, Mom and I used to have dates there. I mean, pigging out or splurging during her payday with nice stuffs. That's why I was eager to come with them too. LOL.

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

Last Saturday, it was Hon and I's turn for a date. Went to 4 places again. Quiapo, Divi, RobPlace. Avenida. Anyhow, RobPlace Manila is kinda different now. It has fountains at the front, they have Powerbooks twice the size where they have at the ground floor. Uber coolness. :D

Yesterday naman, Jonnah went to our house to hang out. Its just so nice seeing and inviting people over, especially when you haven't seen them for a long time already. See, Jonnah is one of my bestest friends during Elementary. We were supposed to study at the same school at high school level, but my Mom enrolled me in ICAM, an exclusive school for girls, who also found me a home.

So there, a weekend adventure all rolled into one. Maybe that's why I'm late today. I'm too exhausted to wake up. But I'll be on leave tomorrow, so I'm all set to rest again. Muah! Hafta go already.
