The Geisha vs. Jang Gyong (or whatever the spelling is)

Our Christmas party this year was themed United Nations. And I brilliantly remembered Freddie having a Japanese get-up so, there you are, I'm a moshi moshi anone girl. :) There's a prize for Best in Costume and sadly Ms. Jang-Gyong (Ann in real life) beat me to it. I planned on wearing a hanbok actually but had a hard time finding one. So you can just say I almost had the bag in my hands but lost it. *heh* Most of the peeps there took advantage of our boss, the gorgeous *ahem* Paolo Pineda. But I wasn't one of 'em hahaha. If you wanna view more pics of the event just visit here.

Anyhows, been to another Christmas Party with some of the guys from PEX (which we all don't frequent as much as before). It was fun seeing Francis, Pao, Chelo, Tselo, Anna and Jenneth again. We haven't seen each other in months (almost a year yung iba) so we had a lot of catching up to do. Badette and Joy couldn't make it but hopefully we'd all see each other again soon (tuwing Pasko na lang ba 'to guys?).

I have another party to attend later -- the Star Magic Christmas Party. I planned not to attend before because I had some baggages left over from being laid off. But Cherry made me realize that I should ditch the angst and get over it. Well, I guess I did.

More cam whoring to share later. :)

They want my treasure so they get their pleasures from my photo.


And my new shoes...

Wish ko lang. :p

Give me wisdom, plain and truthful...

I was in a rush to get to work the other day (I stayed up late, tinkering my Sims too much) and I boarded one of our building elevators with two men (one is pretty familiar to Cherry -- haha guess who!). Anyway, I was minding my own business but I could not help but listen to their conversation because their voices were a bit louder than the norm. Their chat went a bit like this...

Man 1: So you had a great time?
Man 2: Yeah, I did! I'm 37 years old and I haven't dated a smart girl like her in my whole life.

Then as I got off my floor, I wondered about Man 2. It was either...

a.) He's real superficial choosing dates.
b.) He hangs out at places no coherent conversation is possible.
c.) He lives under a rock and has just crawled out to the sunshine.
d.) His smart meter is waaay off the charts. He just dated the woman version of Albert Einstein recently.

You can add to the choices if you like. I can't fathom myself the correct answer.

De do do do, De da da da

I'm at my wits end thinking of a gift for my uncle and his wife. Every year my sister and I get stumped as to what stuff we should be getting them. First, they are a bit well-off. Second, my uncle fancies artsy and expensive stuff which we can't afford. Third, ang labo nila! *lol* We've given shower gels, figurines na out of the ordinary,coffee table books, fluffy bedroom slippers, colognes, polo-shirts...My creative gift giving powers are running out!

Well, you see we kinda feel obligated cause my uncle helped put us to school. Kaya lang ang daya, their whole family gives me and my sisters one gift each, while we have to give each of their family members one. Yeah, yeah, I know gift giving should be 'taos sa puso' but sometimes there are relatives you just can't seem to find a perfect gift.

Oh well, back to gift hunting...

I was cryin' when I met you, now I'm dying to forget you

You shouldn't compare yourself to others - they are more screwed up than you think. Quote for the day courtesy of Almond. Thanks for somehow making my day. :)

On the other side of the news...I don't want to be a grinch. I love Christmas. And giving gifts. But I think I'm slowly evolving into one.

I'm not yours. What you waiting for?

Plastic Happy. All I wanted for Christmas were shiny, red, patent shoes. But I couldn't resist the pair I saw at Bayo. So I bought them yesterday! So yey, I have my shoes. And I'm walking with 'em to and fro work cause I don't have money for my fare hahaha. Just kidding. Domi already called mah shoes ruby slippers. Ah wish I could really go home like Dorothy. Be happy, happy, happy and worry free. But here I am doing Crazy for You episodes. *bleh*

Flow and I might have rejoiced just a tad too early. We might get stuck with her after all. I just wish she'd realize her so called friends are the ones spreading 'stuff' bout her. She might be drinking a lot of coffee from Starbucks everyday, however she has to unclog her nose and SMELL the coffee. I'd be happy if she leaves, but I feel she'd be happier in the process. IMHO.

Malas mo ikaw ang natipuhan ko.

I visited my old my space account and I can't help but reread my old blog. Gosh I was pretty bubbly yet full of bitterness back then! I'm actually amusing myself with my old entries. *lol* I used to write a lot of what I was feeling --without hesitation. I feel that old me has to be resurrected. So here I am making an entry like my old ones, in an attempt to, I dunno, be more honest to myself.

I'm confused. An old feeling is coming back to me. Because I had to feed my ego. And I can't shake it off. What's worse is that it's wrong. I know it is. I'm opening myself to hurt again and yet it's making me feel all excited. Yet sad. I want to get rid of these thoughts.The tingly feeling that makes my heart beat faster...

Shoo fly. Don't bother me. Please.

Meet Sniffer

My new bunny rabbit -- given by my boyfriend. We've passed him by several times at the mall and finally we got him. He's a holland lop. Pretty cute don't you think? But he's not so cute when he poops and wiwis. The down side of having a pet. And oh he has started gnawing at our curtains. He won't stay still long enough for me to take a decent photo of him.

Twick or Tweat!

I should have gone with the pig right? Went Halloween hat shopping with Randy for the contest at the office. I ended up with a pumpkin witch and viking hat. And didn't win. I could have won if I bought more hands to clap for me (Gaby was the only one there and she was more amused with Jollibee than me).

I won P125 in the parlor games though. Hirap kumita ng pera. *lol*

Wednesday, October 25, 2006

Knock, knock. Who's there?

Tanong: Anong hayop ang laging alanganin?
Sagot: E di baka!

Sometimes my boyfriend's jokes just kill me. :)

Sailor Moon live action!

Sailor Moon is the first anime I've watched on TV and got addicted to. Of course, I was real disappointed when Ch.5 cut the series off air even if it wasn't finished yet (or they moved its time slot and I totally missed the ending). I intended to buy the whole series on DVD but haven't gotten around to it (I actually have 3 K-dramas sitting on my shelf waiting to be viewed). Camille told me about the live action series and pointed me to a link on youtube. So now I'm amusing myself with the first episode. Makes me wonder if there's a copy of the live action on DVD too...

The girls look like Kim Chiu clones...well, I think one of them looks like Jjang Nara too. I'm satisfied with the look of my favorite senshi -- Sailor Jupiter on the show. The one who plays Usagi really looks like a klutz so I didn't expect her to look real pretty. *lol* Mamoru looks pretty as always with Japanese actors. The show has good subs too. One weird thing though, Luna's a plushie. *lol* Here's a preview of part one for your entertainment. :)

Rambling about...stuff

Just realized it takes a long time to heal the eye. 'Til now, I sometimes feel teary eyed because of the itchiness and pain. And my eyes have become sensitive to light. This morning while watching Sunny Pig, I used one of the throw pillows on the sofa to block out the light coming from the dining area. Argh. And on top of that I can't use make-up, even mascara. Boo-hoo. Hay, I have to be good. Hirap magkasakit lalo na sa taong tulad ko na walang benefit. *leche*

Anyway, as for that job interview I told you about...let's just say forget it. Ask me what happened in person. I'll tell you a funny story about it. I don't wanna put it down in writing for I might be googled for something else...*lol*

For those of you who know of any rakets for me...pahingi naman o! Hahaha...

Do I hear the call centers beckoning to me??? Noooooo....

Friday the 13th pala today at sale sa megamall. So it means malas ko wala akong perang pangshopping. Nyahahaha...

My eye hurts

Contact lenses + eye rubbing + abrasion + bacteria = eye infection

Yep. That's what the pain in my left eye was for the past few days. Good thing I knew it wasn't an ordinary 'sore eye' and headed straight to the doctor despite my scheduled job interview (which I had rescheduled). Anyway, a thousand pesos poorer, I need to have eye under medication for 2 weeks. I also have to sleep early, time my computer usage AND I can't wear my contacts, boo-hoo.

So for two whole weeks I'm back to my old, nerdy self. *sigh*

I miss Oh Tokyo!

For you guys who have missed watching the show Oh Tokyo! and its quirky host Ellen on the WINS channel, you can get to know her this Saturday, October 7 on Nagmamahal Kapamilya. Her life story's being told (she's being played by Toni Gonzaga) and I can't wait to see what's behind the funny lady who's famous line goes ..."Kung i-coconvert po ito sa pera natin ay ...."

Grabe, I remember staying up til the wee hours of the morning just to watch her. Dito nagsimula yung pagiging addict ko sa 'Asian' stuff, na napunta sa Arirang at Meteor Garden. Nakakaaliw si Ellen, promise!

If you wanna see or remisnisce some old Oh Tokyo! episodes (my favorite is the Shibuya edition) here's where you can watch it.

Eun-Hye again :)

Her new fashion spread for Korean brand Viki. Hay. :)

Nah, it's not what you think. I'm just in a rush to put something in here so it's a dash of stuff here and there...

- I finally bought my ODM watch yahoo!!! I've been crushing on it since I saw it on Bianca Gonzales and I bought one on installment. One thing bad about it is that I can't spend on anything else during the next six months.

- There's this cool site on multiply -- that sells absolutely adorable stuff. Unfortunately I can't afford it because of the previous thing I wrote. *sigh*

- I'm turning into a shopping monster again and Randy's not very happy about it. :)

- I'm thinking of applying for a new job...

- I was irked on the MRT again! There's this girl the other day, who elbowed me...sobrang atat to get on and grab a seat. The reason I discovered a little later on was that isa pala siya sa mga kinaiinisan kong powder on the train gels. She brought out this pink Pond's powder bottle out of her pa-kikay shoulder bag, poured some on her palm tapos nagpapagpag bago naglagay sa mukha. I was shocked and amazed at the same time.

That's all the time I have for my quickie today. See ya in longer posts or more quickies next time ;)

Food thoughts

I'm really scrapping the end of the barrel here, blogging about what we talk about during lunch. Just so I keep you guys happy with something to read, please forgive me for my so-so thoughts lately.

So how should I start this? The lunch group were talking about stuff that we don't like to eat. Of course veggies come on top of the list. Me, I'm a bit picky about sea food -- I don't eat crab and some fishies like ayungin and hito. They smell real bad for me to eat. I remember my sister and I hated it when my Lola cooked ayungin or hito because most of the time we were the designated clean up crew after every meal. Eventhough we didn't eat em, the fish will stink up the dining table, the plates, even the glasses. Washing the stuff is a real chore cause even after you use Joy and calamansi on your hands, it still stinks big time. Well, that off my chest we then proceeded to talking about weird stuff we eat. Someone (I don't recall who) said that a friend of his/her ate everything with ketchup, which was like eww, considering he likes eating sinigang with it. We recalled the Mang Tomas lechon sauce ads where they made the sauce a spread for pandesal. double eww.

Now here are the list so far of things people I know don't like to eat:

*okra (Grace and Randy hate the slimy stuff)
*cucumber (Again the sliminess of the veggie gets to Randy)
*suka (Thess gets a point here)
*mayonaisse (Thess and Lucille as far as I can remember has never touched the stuff)
*avocado (This makes Pia vomit)
*pizza (How can anyone hate this food? Well, Cors does)
*food with red sauce (Cors really hates 'em & this includes spaghetti)
*crab (I like the synthetic kani but the real thing makes me go "Gross!")
*liver (The 2 Pia's I know would rather jump off a building than eat liver)
*ponkan (Again Thess gets the point on this one)
*watermelon (Si Thess ulit! Weird ng taste buds ng taong to di ba?)
*hamburger (Cors din ayaw nito)
*menudo (Nauumay si Flow dito)
*tuyong adobo (Si Pia naman ang umay dito)
*ampalaya (Grace had to endure this because of her anemia, she had no other choice)

Contributions to this list are welcome.

Can't think of anything blogabble to write about. I'm too lazy to be creative.

Leave The Pieces :: Wreckers

You're not sure that you love me
But you're not sure enough to let me go
Baby it ain't fair
You know to just keep me hanging round
You say you don't wanna hurt me
Don't wanna see my tears
So why are you still standing here
Just watching me drown

And it's alright
Yeah, I'll be fine
Don't worry about this heart of mine
Just, take your love and hit the road
Cause nothing you can do or say
You're gonna break my heart anyway
So just leave the pieces when you go

Now you can drag out the heartache
Baby you can make it quick
Really get it over with and just let me move on
Don't concern yourself with this mess you left for me
I can clean it up you see
Just as long as your gone


You're not making up your mind
It's killin' me
You're wasting time
I need so much more than that


Leave the pieces when you go
Leave the pieces when you go


Leave the pieces when you go

You Are Here...

Me and the gang were finally up and about last Friday but it was not the usual 'joyride' we used to have. Actually our "driver" Jerry was in the hospital and we visited him after his operation (as to which part of his's a secret) at the Medical City along Ortigas.

Yes. We were right there.

It was a very weird get-together you might say, missing months of taking 'joyrides' together. They planned it to be an all-nighter but how can 8 people sleep inside a very cramped room?

Me standing beside Jerry's dextrose which he moved to make room for Grace on his bed.

Jerry tried his best to be sober around us but within minutes we had him cracking up (the doctor told him not to laugh too much). The poor patient had to even endure watching us while we ate his favorite monggo soup, kare-kare and fish for dinner (bawal kasi sa kanya hehehe).

Poor guy. He even had to make room for us on his bed. He can't even walk properly yet.

Here are some of the people present during this "rare event":

Grace, the gal who hogged Jerry's bed and the remote *lol*

Ana, just discovered the joy of Eaji's salsa dip and couldn't stop saying 'Mmmm....'

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Ate Net texting away on her motorazor...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Thess, also checking up on 'someone'...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Zeny, pretty shocked at what Jerry 'revealed' to her (he put on a show for the early birds a few minutes before)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
And last but not the least the overworked Nhila Mallari who had a 5AM flight the following day.

It was important for us to be there that day for Jerry is actually leaving for the US in a few weeks. *sniff* No more joyrides. There will be a special despidida for him but I guess we're catching up on lost time.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The gang. Hopefully we'll still journey together even without B3 (short for Batu-Batong Bakla).

Get well soon Jers. See you on the 15th.

I dunno why some guys still think that the line "Miss, pwede ba makipagkilala?" works.

It's actually really creepy.

Happy Meal


The chili cheese flavoring for the shaker fries made everyone sneeze though. *heh*

"Windy, windy, windy..."

That's how the Eugene song "Windy" goes and I wanted to sing that (and dance the infamous steps too)when she visited Manila and the station last Friday. Of course, it's another gazoo sighting for me and work at the same time, which makes me love my job sometimes.*lol* Anyway she was real pretty! Not as tall as I expected but real nice and lovely. She had a good command of the english language so it was no biggie for us to call out to her (which I didn't, pretending to be a professional writer and all that *ahem*). I've liked her even way back during my "arirang" days. I've watched Pops in Seoul like hundreds of times and caught on S.E.S fever (her singing group with Bada and Shoo) since they belonged to SM Entertainment then, the same management as BoA and FTTS.

I wonder if she'd sign the pirated S.E.S CD that I bought in Ongpin. Hahaha, I know she won't. But I know of a stalker friend who got her photobook successfully signed.*lol*

For my pics of her visit you can see 'em all here.

Princess Mode

Warning: Fan Girl rambling ahead! :)

Eversince Tin told me that Eun-Hye reminded her of me, it made me wanna watch Princess Hours (Goong) more. After making hints at Randy to buy me a copy (passing the pirated DVD copy everyday on the way home) he finally does and here I am watching an episode every night. Well, actually I watched three the first time and two last night so now I'm on Chapter 20! Four more to go whoopee.

Hmm...first off, I do see myself in Eun-Hye, I mean not as pretty as her but in her style of dressing and her mannerisms (tama ka Tin!). Camille asked me a few days back if I'm rooting for Yul or Shin. At first well...Yul had this Hua Ze Lei feel, but now I'm getting more into Shin's masungit yet softy personality. And the bears at the end of each eppy, they are sooo cute!

Hmm...would they all live happily ever after? Gusto kong maging prinsesa! -- not. Hehe...millionaire na lang.

Bring Back My Bunny to Me

My bunny lies over the ocean,
My bunny lies over the sea,
My bunny lies over the ocean,
Oh bring back my bunny to me...

The last of my bunnies has died and gone to bunny heaven. *sniff* I really cried when my grandma called me to say that Velveteen aka Ebeng had passed away last Saturday. She died of old age. She was already 8 years old. Her hubby, Rabitty, passed away about 3 years ago due to an eye infection. I miss them.

Ebeng, during Christmas of 2005. She snorts when you pick her up. She hates being cuddled.

Thanks Ivy for giving me those bunnies waaay back in college.

Plugging -- again!

It's the August issue of Pink Mag! I have two articles in it -- the cover story on PBB Teen Big Winner Kim Chiu and tidbits on Korean superstah, Rain.

Testing beauty stuff

Here I am again doing silly stuff. Last night me and Randy bought this box of pore strips. Sucker for cute packaging, I chose the one with this girl cartoon on the front. At home as I closely inspected the box, it said "Made in Japan". Ah kaya naman pala na-magnet ako. So here I am modelling the pore strip for you guys. And I am glad to report that I don't have much blackheads on my nose (unless press release lang yung nasa box na nakakalinis siya). *heh*

Dreary Monday

It's another rainy monday. I really hate the rainy days. The DJs on the radio are right. One would love the rain IF you're absolutely ain't gonna do anything except lounge around the house. Or you're not living in Malabon and Navotas. Hehe -- the reason why we always tease Flow to bust out his kayak everytime it rains. (He refers to his home in Sangandaan an island.)

This is the view outside our office.

see the PBB house below? the pinoy dream academy is just beside it. just wanted everyone to know.

Anyhoos, my feet are wet again. BUT I was surprised to find an ABS-CBN shuttle at the Q.Ave MRT station! I got dropped off at the Starbucks right at the ELJ entrance. Galing. Ala lang. It just amused me.

Before I end this here's the link to LDW's pics. Enjoy!

Dong Wook-shi!

I wanted to call him that when he walked by right in front of us after the presscon. The agony of being so near yet so far.

Alright I'm not a major LDW fan, but he's a Korean actor and a good looking one at that so therefor he counts on my must-see-in-person list. We (Abby and I) were at the presscon at exactly 4 PM. We got in together with the publishing people and got seated at the table right in front. Of course I had to test my camera (ah my SO's pala) so I took pictures of the A.rang poster beside the MyGirl one. I was surprised when this Korean girl started talking to me. She was actually a writer for Manila Seoul Weekly, a publication for Koreans in the PH. I also got to talk to her Filipino counterpart, Tin.

Then commotion. He has finally arrived. LDW had this boyish charm about him that made him more...approachable. He laughed graciously at some of the press people's jokes and comments.

BUT an old fag, who thinks his clout can get him anywhere gate crashed the presscon, fought with LDW's interpreter plus grabbed his arm, the injured one at that! He started calling people names, said something ill to the guests and stomped out like an ogre who didn't get what he wanted. All hopes of getting a picture with LDW flew out the window...He has agreed to a group picture for goodness sake!

This was the closest I got. Oh well, at least I got to ask him the last question of the day and managed to say, "Anneyonghaseo! Patricia imnida!...".

And that ends my LDW adventure. *bow* (I'll post links to the pics as soon as I dl them.)

It would have read...

A Day in the Life of Lee Dong Wook by Patty Ramirez.

I lost the assignment from Star Studio to another writer just last night because they thought I would not be able to excuse myself from my job. And my boss' hearing me lament about said it would have been alright. I could have even gotten stuff for the site.

Consolation prize, there's a press conference tomorrow and we're invited.

So much for me saying my life as a fan girl is over. :)

Gusto ko palang gumasta...

Last Friday, I wanted to do something that I couldn't quite put my finger on. Yun pala I just needed to cure an itch. My shopping itch! Hehe, haven't done that hobby for quite a while. Good thing Shangrila Mall was on their end of season sale! Yehey. My significant other looked funny sitting in a corner while waiting for me try on stuff. I was chuckling to myself because he was lumped together with other guys waiting for their gfs who were trying on clothes too. *lol* Well, to put it short I'm broke again. Bought new shoes from So F.A.B. (the one in the pic I'm wearing today and jeans from BAYO. I wanted to buy a bag too but seeing a very nice and expensive one at SM, I decided to hold my bag itch off and just save for it. Wish ko lang it would still be there. =)

*Cherry will kill me if she sees this entry.

Ish Ur Berday

Yep. Turned another year older. Blech. =)

Had a small GT with the TEC girls (get together -- remember that term girls???). Strong rains prevented Mai, Ivy and Cherry from coming but that's Ok. Liezle, Eve, Bambie, Dhing, Tina, Jopen, Leah and Joy did a good job at finishing all the food. Actually I received 3 cakes from them (a chocolate, brazo de mercedes and crema de fruta) plus the mango crunch cake Randy bought me the day before. (He's even more excited over my birthday than I am.) I think they all have a plan to make me a blimp by the end of the year.

So it's a Monday again. I feel lousy actually. I'm wearing my fat pants today. I call them fat pants because 1.) I only wear it when I'm really fat 2.) It also makes me look fat. Hehehe...weird logic. The 3 pairs of jeans left that fit me now are still hanging outside to dry. My beautiful pairs of pants (about 5-6) DO NOT fit anymore. Dang! Seriously I need to lose the fat that's accumulated at my hips, thighs and butt.

Sigh. Oh before I forget, I am still accepting belated birthday gifts 'til the end of this month. ;)

Is She Kidding Me???

1,500 words for our website headline? She's got to be kidding me. Magazine articles (a full story at that) consist of 1,500 words. Sometimes even less. And with the info I get for the headlines...1,500??? If you were given a one paragraph press release, can you turn that into a 1,500 word article?

I'm just a writer. I'm not a magician.

ps. And as far as I know too, online articles are supposed to be short. Unless it's a study or something. But you can correct me if I'm wrong.

Me, me, me!

To change the view from the dismal entry below I am posting a photo of my new eye glasses.

of course it includes my face. where's the sense of it if it doesn't???

I've got nothing much to say. Happy to hear from the TEC girls (aka the F4FU mods). A simple "Kamusta?" from Leah brought in a flood of emails. 71 to be exact.

Missing Home

Haven't been around here lately. Well, work has me occupied once more. Actually it's not work perse but my "extra stuff" to earn "extra lot". I guess I'm eager to get a lot of writing jobs because as of recent there's a huge rift between me and my mom. I dunno there's been some kind of 'thing' that we've been circling around on and I just keep pushing it at the back of my to-do list. And you know me I don't really like getting into confrontations.

Uh you might be wondering what has this got to do with my financial stats... Oh-k. My mom just remarried and she's fixing a lot of papers here and there. Don't ask me the details...Anyway I think my time as the favored daughter is up since she's been talking to my sister a lot (Sometimes I feel that it's all because she has an American fiance who's gonna bring her to the US). All I'm getting are pretty much second hand info from Pia. I'm just a phone call or email away and I just hate to be the last person to know that I AM going to be encountering something BIG.

Since I was young I hate digressing about money stuff. Traumatized probably by my father's irresponsible ways. Then the burden of handling OUR financial stuff more or less made me --- I don't know how to describe it. Materialistic? Thrifty? A money worry wart? I have been keeping home eversince she left and believe me its hard, not just keeping house but keeping everything and everyone together.

Ah, well to continue, I have been informed that we will not be receiving our monthly allowance from her. 'Til further notice. So dear friends don't expect to see me in a few months or so *heh* Seriously, I have wracked my brain for resources other than my freaking slave salary. I'm sour graping too that she can send my older sister money anytime she asks for help. But when its our turn, know what she said? "Malalaki na nga kayo dapat di ko na kayo iniintindi." WTF.

Some of you are lucky. You have a family -- a daddy, a mommy, a dog. A roof on your head to call your own. No one to throw you out...Really sometimes I just feel a bit lost.

I guess the angsty me is still in here after all. This scar's probably deeper than all the other scars that i have. I'm ending it here for now. I can feel the tears welling at the corners of my eyes. It's not good for the eye make-up I put on for 20 minutes this morning.

Kissing Diet

I want to lose weight!!!(I'm dead serious)

Eating dinners with my significant other had the pounds I lost catching up on me again. So I was searching the internet for dieting tips (yeah yeah) and I chanced upon this one in Reader's Digest

But what caught my attention (and Flow's too) was this one:

53. Passionately kiss your partner 10 times a day. According to the 1991 Kinsey Institute New Report on Sex, a passionate kiss burns 6.4 calories per minute. Ten minutes a day of kissing equates to about 23,000 calories -- or eight pounds -- a year!

Nice idea don't you think hehehe ^^

The Day I Went Back to School

Yes, I went back to U.P. the other week. I really wanted to take those Korean lessons so Pia, Flow, Abby together with Grace and Cors who were paying for advanced Korean classes trekked to U.P. It's the first time I went back to my unibersidad na mahal ^^ for like almost 6 years. I went there last in 2000 for the latern parade.

We got off at the Palma Hall Annex, near the Educ bldg. Man, it was like a trip back to 1995! I remember taking my Philo 1 class at the 2nd floor of the Educ bldg. The entire block ran off to the Sunken Garden to escape our boring teacher (who was late for 15 mins BTW and suddenly popped out of nowhere. Remember the rule?) *lol* I remember walking to math class after that with my whole freshie block. *sigh* I remember being just 16 years old!!!! geez...

feeling tourist kadiri...

Ayway we ate at the Beach House (mga pare at mare 24 pesos na po ang isang stick ng bbq dati 12 lang yun...) and walked towards the Asian Center through the Main Library and around the Sunken Garden. Here I am doing skips here and there with Flow.

ladidah...ang laki ng likod ni Flow...

After Grace and Cors stop over at the AC, we walked (still) going to the chapel and Shopping Center. Sobrang memories talaga everywhere! The smell of zerox powder, Miranda's, UP souvenir shirts, bluebooks, ice cream and the coop grocery.

Hay I miss going to school, the time when all you thought about was passing your subjects, graduating, torturing your org applicants and saving enough money from your allowance to watch movies at SM North Edsa during breaks. *sigh*

The Eiffel Tower...

Not. We got a bit tired of our 9th floor restroom so we decided to primp ourselves in one of the 13th floor CRs. It also got us to tour Abby, our new writer around. This is the view from there...a deranged man once tried to climb the tower but he got caught. I wonder though how he got there without security noticing him.

Anyway just to put this on record, I'm acting up on my boyfriend today. Ala lang. Nice to rile him up once in a while. ;)

And for some independence day entertainment you can either watch this or this...tell me if you were entertained ha!

A Letter to My Sleepy Self

Dear Self,

Well, well. So you thought it was all over last Saturday, right? But here you are still experiencing the ripples from the giant wave that crashed over you. Oh it might last for a few months or so, just to let you know.

And yeah, i just heard there's a new site for the new 'one' so brace yourself. I have a strong inkling that it is another tunami in the making. Lord help us or make that Lord help you.

Toodles dear. Good luck and snap out of your hazy dream.


Your looney selfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

His eyes pleaded. But she did not feel any remorse. She knew that he loved her yet she couldn't control what was happening to her. Their eyes connected. Their world was spinning. It was a painful ending. He knew it was time. He couldn't stop her. He wished her well...

Sniff...I had to borrow my boyfriend's hanky. Naiyak ako nung namatay si Professor X. ^^

What's your edition?

Because of my current work load (which will end by Saturday hopefully) I have come up with a proposal of future edition themes...

1.) Gay Edition - Sino sa kanila ang tunay na nagpasalon?
2.) Politician Edition - Who will not be murdered in their sleep?
3.) UAAP Edition - Let's switch colors, let Ateneo wear green and La Salle don blue then see what happens.
4.) Magkakagalit Celebrity Special - Sinong galit kanino? Sabunutan 'to at sampalan.
5.) The Guess Whos Gay Edition - Think of that reality game show. Yun na yun. (The one who goes "Pare pa-kiss." is the culprit)
6.) Family Celebrity Edition - Mga Gutierrez vs Mga Cruz (something to that extent mwahahah)
7.) The Sosy Edition - Make them live inside Big Brother's Barong Barong house. I can imagine the dialogue..."Kuya like edible ba ang isaw?"

Today, I'm officially declaring myself B-O-R-I-N-G.

Saturday, May 20, 2006


That was everyone's general expression on our floor when the lights went out. It was weird really to think that we are supposedly the "IT" section of the company and here we were, without any protection system for our PCs. At my former office in the other building, when the lights go out my PC remains open. Haha.

To go back to the "Aarrgh!" expression from yesterday, I was updating my site then and what frustrated me was, since my PC takes forever to upload and insert pictures, I have to restart AND add pics again. I was 2 pictures away to pressing update. Boo-hoo.

And when I looked up everyone was on their feet. Cursing. Parang stock market ang nagcrash...

Whizzy Thing

I was so tired last night that I took a cab home. I felt really beat so i was slouching and pouting in the backseat. Then all of a sudden this thing whizzed by my cab...

Can one call a car pretty darn cute? It made my day. :)

Ps. Just noticed all my posts lately pertain to being tired, stressed, toxic...hehehe.

Dead Tired

I've only been in-charge of the site's content since Saturday and I feel that's its already taking a toll on me. It's only 12:49 PM and I feel so tired. I've drank a cup of caffe mocha despite my deminishing financial resources to keep me awake. I forgot to tell you guys that I got home at 1:30 AM last Saturday. Looks like there's gonna be a repeat in a few days.

To those who know which site I'm talking about please visit and give me a feed back. I'm working my ass off it and I'm still partly doing editing for eventhough my boss told me a switch of duties meant me being hands-off my former responsibilities. Guess I was wrong. And this PC I'm using stinks. Last night it took me ages to edit pictures and uploading stuff that I wanted to end my misery (and the comp's) by pitching the CPU outside the window, from the 9th floor. If there was one open that is.

I'll probably be seeing you guys at the end of this edition. (hint,hint) Hopefully I haven't pulled all my hair out by that time.

When F4 and K-pop Collide

Parang Brokeback ang dating ah. *ngisi*

Don't get me wrong. I like Vanness. And I think Kang Ta's one of the best male Korean singers there is. But mhen. Look at 'em.

I repeat -- Parang Brokeback ang dating. *lol*

2006 Labor Day

Pronunciation: 'hä-l&-"dA, British usually 'hä-l&-dE
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Old English hAligdæg, from hAlig holy + dæg day
2 : a day on which one is exempt from work; specifically : a day marked by a general suspension of work in commemoration of an event
3 chiefly British : a period of relaxation : VACATION -- often used in the phrase on holiday; often used in plural.

Holidays don't exist in my world.
Text niyo na lang BBNews and send to 2366. Para naman mabasa niyo ang ipinasok ko ngayon. Check niyo na rin later. I'm still working on the headline.

After churning out word after word yesterday, seems like I'm finally stumped. I'm forcing myself to write (work wise) but my eyes, hands and brain coordination seem not to be in sync. The episode guides are now getting to be quite a mountain. And I don't think it will become even a mole hill any time soon.

And since I am financially strapped I accepted another writing job for Star Studio yesterday with a deadline today. I turned in another assignment from them last Tuesday (that was due Monday, blame my 'surprise' work assignment). This is the most number of articles I've done in a week. I think it could be an equivalent of my half a year's work in TC, oh way back then.

Should go back to my article. It's due in about 2 hours.

hell week

I've been work ladden since Monday. The word processing machine in my brain is probably overheating. I can't even put a decent entry in here. Haven't seen my friends in ages (a week feels jurassic to me). My boyfriend is threatening to take me to a horror flick on our monthsary. I'm having a hard time finding clothes that fit. My episode guides are piling up and Panday is just killing me.

This is probably what I'd look like by Friday. @_@

Grammar Lessons

I'm currently having grammar lessons on the net (what's good about learning this way is that you can even write in your blog whenever you want to, without getting a scolding from the teacher). Anyway, I'm getting more concious about the stuff I've been writing lately, me already a grammar OC (obssesive compulsive if you must know what the two letters mean). Example topics are "What Is an Interjection, and How Do I Punctuate It?" and "The Loyal Apposition". Don't ask me yet what those things are because I'm still reading up on it.

I think I have come into terms with myself that I have to live with being a writer (yeah this has just dawned on me lately after taking up four years of Journalism in college and making a living as a writer for six years) and that I should better myself at what I am doing. Hence the grammar lessons. I could be Chief Grammar Police in a few days or so. *heh*. Or so I wish... Pwede bang mangotong ng ganitong 'pulis'? I might just turn into an overnight millionaire. *lol*

Just a note -- I have now capitalized my I(s)and the beginning of my sentences. I also plan to put proper commas, quotation marks and other punctuation marks in the right places. I pledge allegiance to the grammar gods and leaders from this day forward (I'm keeping fingers crossed behind my back).

house bound reporting

it's back to the grinding board! another toxic monday. i was excited to go back to work actually. aircondition finally! ah...i truly languished in the heat over the long weekend. my sis and i were like buns baking in the oven *lol*

aside from perspiring (ladies don't sweat haha) i wasn't able to accomplish much as i have thought i would. i did do my laundry. and that was pretty much it. hehehe. oh and i did watch most of the k-movie dvd's i have collected in a month. hmm... my list includes mr.housewife, he's so gorgeous, 100 days with mr. arrogant, afrika (which was pretty bad), jenny juno, love so divine and the classic. i still have a few more titles left though.

we also had an animax and hero tv marathon. hmm...what else...bucky's booted out of idol. i want the pickles next. teehee.

and the highlight of it all...we caught the fat mouse that has been bugging the hell out of me for days!!! yey!

house bound

new look around here...this is as far as i could get. hehe. hope you all like it. i know francis will be commenting "green nanaman???" sige kain ka muna ng grass. :)

well i know most of you guys will be going on vacation for the next 3-4 days. me, you know where to find me. i'll be staying home with pia, would probably attend to neglected household chores i.e. laundry duties, scrubbing the bathroom floor, sweeping my room (broom meet bedroom floor, floor meet broomy)and having a korean movie marathon.

i don't go out of town during the holy week. i still believe in reflecting during these times and not treating it as a time to rest, time to go on a vacation and have fun. i have this fear in the back of my mind that lightning might strike me or a mini tsunami sweeping over some island should i parteee on those 3 days. it's just 3 days out of the whole year besides sundays (na madalas kahati pa ng malling and catching up on sleep) to offer to HIM.

oh if you are going out there, somewhere, take care and have fun. and try to think about HIM even for a little while.

signing off for now. ta-ta.

si brenda ang bidang kontrabida

ang nakaraan:

sa pagpipilit ni brenda na siya ang nasa tama, isa isa na siyang nilayuan ng kanyang mga kaibigan. at bago pa siya maunahan ng kanyang ex-friends sa iniisip niyang paghihiganti ng mga ito sa kanya nagsimula na siyang magisip kung paano siya makaka-resbak sa mga ito.

pero sa dami ng kasamaang naiisip ni brenda na gagawin niya sa ibang tao, gumawa na siya ng isang checklist dahil mahirap nang may makalimutan siya...

things to do today:

1.) manlait ng tao (check)
2.) look somebody down from head to toe (check)
3.) ikwento ang sinabi ni annie na sinabi niya kay donna na sinabi niya kay lara tungkol kay bea. ikalat pa ito sa ibang kakilala namin (check)
4.) magkalat ng false info tungkol kay david - na isa siyang mahirap at nagpapangap. (check)
5.) sunugin ang bahay ko para makakuha ng insurance.
6.) mag-hire ng detective na mag-spy kay regina. (check)
7.) tangalan ng brake ang sasakyan ni boss.
8.) connive with budoy para pabagsakin si keanna.
9.) ipapulot ang bracelet kay analiza sa putikan sa pamamagitan ng kanyang mga ngipin.
10.) kumuha ng ka-look alike para magpangap na ako (check)
11.) patirin si eloisa (check)
12.) i-perfect ang halakhak ng tagumpay...mwahahaha (check)
13.) ibili ng regalo si rhoda - kunwari mabait ako sa kanya (check)
14.) magkunwaring hinimatay at umakap kay marco na timing na makikita ni lulu (check)
15.) basahin ang diary ni gary sa ilalim ng unan niya (check)
16.) idelete ang file para sa presentation bukas ni vivian (check)

magtagumpay kaya siya sa mga masama niyang balakin? maniwala kaya ang mga tao sa kanyang tsismis? sa kanyang pagpapanggap? maalala kaya ni brenda na pira-pirasuhin at sunugin ang listahan niya bago mahuli ang lahat?

i wasn't in a very good mood this morning so i was a bit cranky riding the MRT. so sullen me noticed all the most annoying things i could possibly see in the station and on the train...

*why is that some people confuse which side of the station goes to the north and to the south? like duh. san ka ba papunta? E di dun din yung direksyon ng tren ng MRT. s-t-u-p-i-d. (mainit talaga ang ulo ko kanina...)

*guys who can't keep their legs to themselves. meaning yung mga nakabubukaka na halos i-occupy na ang buong seat sa MRT. kala mo naman malaki ang...katawan. *lol*

*people who talk as if they are the only people on the train. (i've written an entry about this before. medyo guilty dito yung mga call center agents na may pa-english english pa, ahehehe sorry sa mga tatamaan) at mga taong kala mo sila lang ang may cellphone sa buong mundo. hello! (telephone? *lol*)

*just a quirk. i noticed a real gorgeous guy on the train and sad to say he had a big turn off. he looked like a model but he had no ass! wehehehe...ang panget pala nun!

okay. now that's off my chest...on to breaking news....

the ponkan's dead. and gone to heaven...
may it rest in peace in my stomach...
