Taiwan's Meteor Garden with the "original" F4?

Christmas Countdown

Went Christmas shopping last Sunday and Monday with Pi and ended up paying for most of our gifts to relatives. Boohoo. Oh well but at least I've accomplished part of my list.
On the other hand I saw this bag at VNC, which is really drool worthy.
The bad part was that it costs P2700! I was sooo tempted to take out my card...took a lot of self-control hahaha...

Sana may magregalo sa akin... hint, hint.

Horoscope for today

"Situations are too settled and too predictable, and the staleness of it all is unbearable."
Nooninoo...ano kaya ang ibig sabihin nito??? Hahahaha...

On other news...It's hard when people you are close to have problems, especially when you see them, live with or talk to them everyday and you're too helpless to do anything. Even if I use my super special powers to help (meron ba? harhar), I think it's their own battle to fight in the end.

Pero nakaka-zap yung negative energy nila ha. :(

Rambling again.

Woke up on the wrong side of the bed

Still nursing remnants of the virus that struck me over the weekend. Didn't get enough sleep last night, resulting to this big annoyed feeling I have right now.

I was so annoyed at hunting for a shirt, which I later found out was in the clothes hamper.

I was annoyed at the MRT for not having a working air conditioner.

I was annoyed at the woman standing beside me for having two cellphones which she both constantly texted on while we were standing inside the train. The units were more posh than mine. ha!

I was annoyed at the tricycle driver for taking his kid along and making the child ride in front of him without thinking of the kid's safety. It was very irresponsible of him to do so.

I looked at the mirror and was annoyed with my hair. I should get a haircut seriously.

I was already annoyed with this someone's annoying habit and it became super annoying seeing him doing it again over something important.

The only thing I enjoyed this morning was Jovan's shirt. Wonder why...

Anyone up for a grumpy contest?

I'm pondering whether to buy that oven that I saw at the SM Appliance center the other day. I so wanna try baking, but I'm afraid it's gonna make me fatter. *pffft*

What are your plans?

Now that my sister is leaving in a few months, leaving me technically alone in the house we considered our family's home, seems like everyone's asking "What are your plans?"

All of my aunts, my mom, my grandmother...they are all asking me what I plan to do. Everyone is now interested in me and offering their advice on what I should do with my life. Well, to tell you frankly I'm quite lost, I still don't know the answer to this question eventhough I'm already 30 years of age. I know everyone wants the best for me, but the rebel in me is shouting for them not to meddle.

Although I am not earning much, I like my job. Eventhough he is not earning much, I love my boyfriend. And eventhough I'm gonna be alone, I'm excited in a way of my full independence. The biggest problem, I'm analyzing, is still financial security. Is my fear of the past going to haunt my future?

The favorite daughter, who was once thought to become the very successful one, suddenly turned into someone very plain and blended in the background.

So what are my plans? I really just don't know what to say.

Giant Strawberry!

Been wanting to buys some for ages, but can't because these berries are quite costly. But Pia and I finally gave in to the urge and shelled out 400++ to get a taste. Perfect with sugar and cream. :))

I just love my job...sometimes :)

When news of Wu Chun and Calvin Chen's visit to the Philippines spread, I was excited because of course as website people, our team would get to cover it again. And since Pink was a big fan of Wu Chun, she obviously got the assignment with me. I'm not that "well versed" now with the Asian entertainment scene and all I know of the two boys were their dramas. I was not even aware of their group Fahrenheit's songs.

So when the press were called to join the Taiwanese stars on stage, Pink was ecstatic. And of course I got caught up in it. They were sooo nice (unlike some other boy band management we know hahahaha).

I thought Pink and I were lucky enough to have that photo op at the presscon last Saturday (although we shared the moment with the PEP guys). But after our one on one interview with them today, we had another "moment" with them. And what's funny is I felt flustered during our photo session. I could feel Calvin's rib pressed against my arm wahahahahaha... It's soo funny, I felt the fangirlishness returning. :)

Hmm...maybe I should start brushing up on my Fahrenheit knowledge :)
ps. I wore my Kitty shirt for the first time for luck. Hahahaha...

My digital perm adventure

We passed by Tony and Jackey the other day. I told Manila that I wanted for the longest time to try getting a haircut there and she had the same idea as mine. We agreed to check out the prices and low and behold, they had a promo! So instead of just getting a haircut, I went all out and got a digital perm. Hopefully it lasts as long as Jinny, the Korean hairstylist, said.

Acme thoughts

Long time ago, I wanted a piano to fall down from thin air on this creature I knew from way back then. Little did I know, she had a distant relative up here. So I wished my hardest that a piano would fall once again. A grand one.

Then I realized that there's another creature that I want to pummel. Maybe with an electric organ.

Lousy day.

Another attempt at Hello Kitty Food

Noticed that some of the stuff I bought from Lyn were about to expire so I decided to cook it for my test subjects name Randy and Pia. First I tried the Hello Kitty Microwaveable Chocolate Cake. Since the instructions were in Japanese, I had to guess approximately what the recipe was. Got milk, mixed the stuff then placed it in the microwave...after a minute, I could smell it burning! Gah! I took it out and it was as hard as a rock (but still very cute). My willing victim for the day(Randy) still ate it though. Para daw cookie instead of being a cake.

I made the Hello Kitty Pudding/Flan the next day. Made another mistake by assuming it's like leche flan and placed the sauce into the molds first (after na pala dapat) so my Kitties ended up looking sunog hahahaha... Pia didn't like the taste much but again my willing victim, Randy ate it all up.

I have still one more box of each to perfect things mwahahahah...

A happy day

Randy and I went out the other night to watch Iron Man's first day at the cinemas. He's gotten spoiled watching movies at the Shang so since the 7:15 pm showing was already full we had no choice but to get tickets for the 10pm run. We even ran into Jinky and her boyfriend, who I met for the first time. Wanted to chat with Jinx since we haven't seen each other for a long time but I didn't want to impose a double date so I just said hi and hello.

We then counted the minutes at Wham Burger (where he was irritated to death by the fellas at the other table who spoke in cono english quite loudly). We also walked around the shops at the 5th floor then finally settled for a java chip frap at Starbucks to pass the time.

Iron Man time came and I was really impressed with all the robotics (and with Robert Downey jr. for some reason). One thing bothered me though, and it has nothing to do with the movie. There were kids ages 5-7 watching the movie that involved war, sex and violence. I was wondering why the MTRCB gave it a ratedPG rating when it wasn't a simple super hero movie. Can a 5-year-old understand the concept of arms dealing, betrayal and the reason behind Tony Stark's change of mind to do good? Ayyy...di ko maubos maisip kung ano na ang mangyayari sa kids nowadays...

Anyway, the movie was good and I'm definitely gonna watch the sequel (Bitin kasi hehehe)

I edit

Since I've been doing marathon editing for the past months, I can't seem to turn off this machine in my brain. I mean I'm even editing articles in my sleep (napanaginipan ko pati yung mga headlines namin and I could cleary hear the clickety-clack of my keyboard)...

anyway, even commercials sa TV ngayon I see copy to edit.

For example:

"After waiting for two years, the wait is finally over."

It's an advertisement for a party for the gimikero crowd. Gah. Whoever approved their copy ... ah ayoko na magsalita...

Di rin naman perfect grammar ko. Thanks to Cherry for the OCness in editing lately. :)

PBB season nanaman

This is probably the closest I'll get to a body of water this summer. With the new PBB season set to start in a few days, I passed up a free trip to Boracay...Waaaah. *sniff*

Free, as in accomodation, food and party. sheesh.

Kuya really knows how to ruin the summer. Consuelo na yung inside silip sa house. Ang layo sa Boracay di ba... :))

Went home late last night and missed the MRT so I had to ride a bus. On the verge of having a migrane because of editing a lot of articles (marami pang nakapila huhuhu), I was distracted by a flashing light coming from the left side of the bus. I then realized it was coming from a digital camera and this girl was posing as if taking photos for her friendster account. What's more shocking is that she didn't do it once but a gazillion of times! And she was sitting beside another passenger (a young man) who was also looking at her strangely.

I admit I was a camwhore once in my life, but never did I pose in a moving public vehicle, alone and with a stranger beside me. And I only used my cellphone to take pics in the mall, and discreetly pa! The girl did her poses til her stop...di ko alam kung matatawa ba ko o ano...

Been Sick

I went home early last Monday, feeling down and out. That feeling became a full blown stomach flu that made me stuck at home for 2 days. Even had to go to the hospital to have things checked out (it was that bad).

Well, had to muster my strength today and go back to work because I had an inkling that my office inbox's flooded, red (was right). My pages were all missing me (had no updates). They felt abandoned (hehehe). Gah!

And I can't even eat yummy stuff (fried and dairy products) til my stomach clears up. Sniff.

I hate getting sick.

Sehe Bokmanee Bateuseyo!

Had to bust out the school girl outfit again at the Lunar New Year celebration for my Korean class.

Had fun being silly again with Uchi and the gang this time. We even had a song and dance number on stage, something I haven't done in age! There's a video of the performance actually but I think Uchi wouldn't dare post it on You Tube. Unless Bambie really tries to.... hahaha...

More pics here!

Lunch Out

After a quick lunch at Italianni's (thanks to Cherry), we went over to Kozui's, a Japanese-themed cafe. The place was super cozy and cute, I couldn't resist taking pictures. I had a strawberry animitsu while Manila and Cherry had double taro animitsu.
The lousy light of my Nokia 6630 camera compared to Cherry's Sony Ericsson made me wanna consider buying a new handy phone harharhar (as if Patty). More pics in my multiply.

We should do this more often :)

Our lesson for today...

Since I'm still warming up to write my Star Studio assignment for Cherrie Pie, I'm gonna teach you guys some words I learned in my Korean class today. I'll be posting the romanized version since my PC has no capacity to post in hangul. :)

SEASON - kye-jol
SPRING - pom
SUMMER - yo-rum
FALL - ka-ul
WINTER - kyo-ul
NEW YEAR - so-lal
CHRISTMAS - kurisumasu or songtangjol
GIFT - son-mul

I'll try to post more Korean vocabulary again next time (meaning when I get masipag again) :) I'm so behind my class...even 13 year old Issa is better than me.
Back to serious writing now... toodles!

2008 na!

How time flies, even when you're not having much fun... just kidding. :)

I dunno what to make out of 2007 really. It's been OK. Not fabulous. More of so-so. I felt like I just went with the flow. Though there are highlights -- my regularization, trip to Singapore with Glody, saying good-bye to Sandy, Lyn's package from Japan, our 2nd year anniversary.

New Year's resolutions? 1.) Diet 2.) Come to work on time 3.) Save
Sana lahat yan magawa ko. (Clocked in at 9:34AM btw hehehe)

Hopefully things will get better this 2008.
Happy New Year friends!
