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.
