Count Me In :D

Yesterday, I was not able to come to work. I woke up late because I am feeling sick. Maybe it is because of the depression I had for our upcoming company outing.

For the past few days, I was formulating reasons and strategies to approach our boss and make me bring my brother along. And because of the tension and fear of being rejected, I did not have the guts to tell him my thoughts.

And so yesterday, my mind gave up and my body weakened in result. I felt so hopeless and sad that I can't be in the outing.

Later, last night I had hope. I know myself for being optimistic and creative in finding means and I have thought of a plan that shed me some light.

I woke up this morning and came to work one hour earlier of my actual shift. I did my daily rituals while I wait for the big boss.

The clock ticks and I am starting to get nervous again. I am almost to quit my plan on talking to my boss when ate marian came and told me a good news.

"Uy, kasama ka na sa outing," she said.

I was shocked and before I knew it, my heart is already jumping in joy. I can't believe it. I'm in! :D Big boss finally decided to let my brother tag along. There are many employees who can't come so he let me bring my bro.

Later before lunch, the final list of employees who are officially coming was posted. I browsed for name.
6. Imperial, Jhoy with her sister

hahaha... well, anyways, at least i'm officially in the list. Thanks god. ;)

Never Get Tired Of Loving Someone

This is a quote from 'The Mexican' starring Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts.
when do you say enough is enough? To somebody you love so much, It is never.

Your body can get frustrated and your mind can get tired but your heart? Never. Despite vexations in your relationships, your heart keeps you holding on. You give way. You find means to understand.

In loving, you should learn a lot. It changes you. It should make you a better person. Love should guide you in the right side of the road.

When loving someone, you gain patience accompanied with faith. The stormy roads in a relationship should make you stronger. Loving should not be selfish both to your special someone but to yourself also.

Capones Camara Islands

I already knew where our company outing would be. It's in the beautiful island of Capones Camara Islands in Zambales. Browsing through a multiply photo album, I could say, it really is a good destination. I can't believe I am going to miss this great opportunity. *sigh :(

Anyways, I grabbed some photos from See for yourself the great scenario of the island.

Caught in the Middle? Nah, I Don't Think So

Our company will have its summer outing on June 8 & 9 in an Island in Zambales. I still don't know where exactly are we going. It would be fun. I never missed a single outing held by the company ever since I became a part of it. Well, maybe this would be the first time.

It is only me and my sole brother who lives together. Our mom is in Thailand right now. There would be nobody left to care of him. He is only 12, technically, he'll be 13 on June 9, and I am his sole guardian. I love him and I couldn't afford to leave him alone for 2 days especially on that very day, his birthday.

I've asked our HR if i my bro could tag along. Sad to hear, but it can't be done. The big boss has said that it would only be the spouses and children of those married employees. :(

But, it's fine. I have already arranged plans months before on how I would treat my brother in his special day. I'll just keep it a secret for now.

Anyways, our HR is has been encouraging me to come but I am already decided. If I cannot be allowed to bring someone along, so it is. I don't want to cause any trouble especially on those days.

Happy summer to everyone! :)

Dear Anak

Here is a very touching and heart-breaking joke letter I have ever read. It may be a joke meant to have fun, but when you have read between the lines, it hurts.
Dear Anak,

Naipadala na namin ang 50 thousand pesos na tuition fee mo, pinagbili na namin ang mga kalabaw natin. Ang mahal pala ng subject mong COUNTER STRIKE, wala na din pala tayong baboy naibenta na din para dun sa sinasabi mo na project nyo na NOKIA N95, ang mahal naman ng project na yun.

Kasama din ang 7 thousand dun para sa field trip nyo sa MALL OF ASIA, anak malayo ba yun? Mag ingat ka sa pagbibiyahe mo, isasanla palang namin ang palayan natin para mabili mo na yung instrumentong I-POD na kinakailangan mo sa laboratory nyo.

Anak komportable ka ba dyan sa boarding house mo, saan ba kamu yan, sa VICTORIA COURT??? - maganda ba dyan? Di ba mainit dyan?

Anak kamusta na pala yung group project nyo na SAN MIG LIGHTS? Napailaw nyo na ba? Mataas ba nakuha nyo na grado dun?

Anak sana bago pa maubos ang lahat lahat ng ari arian natin ay maka gradweyt ka na, walong taon ba talaga ang kurso mo sa SECRETARIAL???

Sana paggradweyt mo makakuha ka ng trabaho kaagad kagaya ng manager ng kumpanya para mabawi natin ang mga ari arian nating nasa sanglaan.

Ay sya nga pala anak di ba sabi mo sa JOLLIBEE / MAK DONALD ka palagi kumakain, ok ba naman sa yo ang mga ulam dyan? Baka hindi masarap, kawawa ka naman.

Anak hanggang dito na lang at sa susunod ay ipapadala namin sa yo ang pera na pambili mo ng ALTIS na gagamitin mo sa VACANT SUBJECT mo.

Ang nagmamahal

Itang at Inang

P.S. Anak mag aral kang mabuti.

Pet Lover? hmmm

Honestly, I am not a pet lover. I am cruel to them. As a kid, I do naughty things to them. I grew up in the province where we have a lot of pets, er, animals. Chickens, dogs, cats, pigs and animals are in the list.

I could say, it is like a farm only not that ideal one you found in the books and movies. It is just a small backyard place with lots of animals.

And because I am a playful kid, I oftentimes get bitten or pecked by our pets. Oh my, I have lots of scratches in the ankle because of our cats.

When I went here to the city, there are no farm animals. Only stray dogs, estranged cats and squirrel rats (rats that are so big, most are almost the size of a cat).

Then I had a friend who loves animals so much. Her name is Yana, and she is pet lover. Everytime I go to their house, I could watch her have fun time with her dog Igay. She was having fun and she love him so much. Slowly, my heart is starting to open its door for animals.

Then, a common friend of ours had a dog name Cheeky. She is a pitbull. Big and fierce looking and of course I was scared. I have known them for being merciless. But then George convinced me that his dog is tame. That it was a show type, one that does not bite and is friendly. At first I did not believe him. But then, my brother and partner has been Cheeky's friend and so in the end we became buddy. Here is Cheeky:

And then summer last year, my partner had a pet. It was a chick. It was clever, friendly and eat a lot. He loves pancit canton and hates worms. As a kid, I was told that chickens love worms. But they were wrong. Not all eat worms.

We named it 'Sisiw Jr'. Ever since we had Sisiw, we had a fun time. He was so playful. And I love it. I'll try to create a separate post for him and I'll add some pictures.

And now, I could say I 'like' pets. And I have started to love them. Maybe in the future I'll get one for me. I want a dog so I could cuddle it. And I love their loyalty to their owners.

Here is a good reading about cats and dogs. Big Paw Blog gives tips and information about dogs. When I got a dog, this site would be a good reference for me.

For now, I'll just pet other's pet. :D

Cooking Time

I am a person who has a big fascination and admiration to food. I adore them. And because of this, cooking has been a hobby for me.

I am not as good as a chef. I am not that good at it. I am just a mediocre office worker who eat whenever she like.

Food that I like are what i usually cook. Sometimes, I try to imitate what I saw or ate in food houses.
And as a good "kitchen person" (in tagalog, taong kusina! hehehehe), you should have recipes in hand. Most of dishes nowadays can be googled down in the internet. Some are common and some are personal recipes. Most of the recipes that I look for besides the main dishes are desserts like salad or snacks like sandwiches and pizzas.

And whenever i have time, i cook. It is an exciting and fun hobby. I cook something different whenever I am free. But for daily routine, just those easy to cook recipes. :D

And because of this post, my stomach is grumbling. hehe I feel hungry.

Firefox 3 Release Candidate 1: The Robot is Out

firefox 3

Our favorite browser released the final update to the latest version of firefox. Firefox 3 beta 5 was out last April 2008.
Firefox 3 Beta 5 includes more than 750 changes from the previous beta, improving stability and web compatibility, providing platform and user interface enhancements, and resulting in the fastest Firefox ever. Many of these improvements were based on community feedback from the previous beta.

  • Integration with Windows: Firefox now has improved Windows icons, and uses native user interface widgets in the browser and in web forms.

  • Integration with the Mac: the new Firefox theme makes toolbars, icons, and other user interface elements look like a native OS X application. Firefox also uses OS X widgets and supports Growl for notifications of completed downloads and available updates. A combined back and forward control make it even easier to move between web pages.

  • Integration with Linux: Firefox's default icons, buttons, and menu styles now use the native GTK theme.

  • Places Organizer: view, organize and search through all of your bookmarks, tags, and browsing history with multiple views and smart folders to store your frequent searches. Create and restore full backups whenever you want.

  • Speed: improvements to our JavaScript engine as well as profile guided optimizations have resulted in continued improvements in performance. Compared to Firefox 2, web applications like Google Mail and Zoho Office run twice as fast in Firefox 3 Beta 5, and the popular SunSpider test from Apple shows improvements over previous releases.

firefox 3

And just yesterday, Firefox 3's First Release Candidate was brought to public. Wondering how good this news is? Check out and have a peak of Firefox 3 Release Candidate 1.

American Idol Top 2: The Battle of 2 Davids

American Idol final 3 said goodbye to Syesha Mercado on this May 14 episode. She was bathing in her tears on stage as the result came out. Her perfomances for 'A Change Is Gonna Come' and 'Proud Mary' was not enough to keep her for the final 2.

It was an all male final leg in the idols. Who will take the title of 'American Idol'. One thing for sure, his name is David. Last name? Still on the weighing scale.

David Archuleta


David Cook

This will be a tough fight next wednesday. Ooh, I can't wait.! :D :D :D

  53. Kasama ba sa job description ko to?

  54. If I do what you tell me to, will this change the world?

  55. I’m not sure if it’s your good looks, your family connection or your charming disposition kaya ka andyan sa puwesto mo. But I’m definitely sure it has nothing to do with your intellect.

  56. Okay lang umabsent kayo. It does not really matter. Mas maaga pa kaming makakapag-lunch.

  57. Ang OA niyo naman. Kino-complicate niyo pa ang mga simpleng problema para lang magmukha kayong may alam. (giggle ;))

  58. You’re just insecure. Palibhasa, deep down you know you don’t deserve to be the boss of someone whose brilliance you can only dream of! (panalo, pang-soap opera yun line)

  59. Sir naman, hindi naman po lahat ng tao kasing bobo niyo.

  60. Karapatan ko nang umuwi pagpatak ng 5pm, 8 hours lang ang binabayaran sa akin eh! Karapatan ko ring mag-absent! At karapatan kong ring masulit ang 1hour lunch break ko!

  61. Ma’am huwag na po kayong mag-english. Lalo lang pong nagiging obvious ang pagiging tanga niyo.

  62. Sir ano ba!? Lagi na lang ba kayong magre-request ng blow job sakin!!??(In a really loud voice)

  63. Sa tono ng pananalita niyo parang naiintindihan ninyo ang pinag-uusapan namin ah. (AHAHAHAHAHA)

  64. Sana po pwede ko rin kayong i-evaluate no? Sigurado lagi kayong bagsak sakin. (One more time, AHAHAHAHAHA. Just fell of my chair.)

  65. Kung ano man po ang kasalanan ko ay kasalanan niyo rin. Boss ko kayo eh.

  66. Maglinis naman po kayo ng table niyo.

  67. Hoy! Ikaw, halika nga rito at tulungan mo ko!

  68. Saang planeta po ba kayo nanggaling at hindi ninyo alam ito?

  69. Ano naman ang mapapala ko kung gagawin ko to?

  70. Inaantok ako. Tulog po muna ko ha?

  71. Bakit ganyan po kayo magsalita? Napo-possess ba kayo ng masamang ispirito?

  72. Sir, umabsent naman po kayo paminsan-minsan. Masaya po kasi ang buong office pag wala kayo eh.

  73. Huwag nga kayong makialam samin!

  74. Kelan kaya kayo mapapalitan bilang boss namin?

  75. Aha!!! Sir bakit kayo naglalaro ng games!? Bawal yan ah!

Desktop Tower Defense: A Very Addictive Game

It's true. This game just get me playing for hours every night.

Desktop Tower Defense game was introduced to me through our forum and ever since then I can't stop playing.

The main goal of the game is to kill all the creeps and prevent them from passing through. You could set up any defense layout with the towers. Each towers has its own strengths and ability. Thus, this is a game of creativity and strategy.

Warning: Don't play this game. :P

Prayer of Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.


Saint Francis of Asisi

Frontier(s) - Unrated and Uncut: A Dare to Watch

Horror films have been the most thrilling movie genre for me. I like watching DVD movies while the lights are off and my room is totally dark.

Two of the most horrific films that I have watched were Saw and Hostel. Oh my, they brought me nightmares. And if you are the kind who find these type of movies awesome, well, here is another gore movie to watch. Frontier(s) is another horrifying, gore movie that will surely bring your nightmares to life. If you have watched the trailer, you will know what i mean. It's not your ordinary horror film. It would give you chill in your spine and fear in your mind as you watch the bloody scenes. It will surely give you the shock.


Because of the gore and sadistic contents it received the NC-17 from the MPAA. And because of the rating, it will be shown on May 9th in selected theaters only. You can view the selected theater listings from their website. It will also come in DVD on May 13th.

Due to the NC-17 rating, then this just means that the bloody scenes are really to the extreme. And if you did not get enough of the butchering in Hostel or the shocking killing in Saw, then this movie would be the best for you. The good part is, it will be shown uncut and unrated.

Again, I have to remind you. This is not your ordinary horror film, thus, it is not suitable to everyone. If you don't have the guts and a strong stomach, don't dare to watch. And if you are the one who can handle such terrifying film, then maybe you are brave enough to watch it.

I have watched the trailer and I really can't wait to watch it in the big screen.

Happy Birthday Jess

I want to greet my high school berk, Jess, who is celebrating her 23th birthday today….


Bad Day by Daniel Powter

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to gray
They tell me your passion’s gone away
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You’re faking a smile with the coffee you go
You tell me your life’s been way off line
You’re falling to pieces every time
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

Because you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Will you need a blue sky holiday?
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

You had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day

(Oooh.. a holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I’m not wrong


So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You’ve seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Sigh, Not Good Morning

I woke up late today.

Waited for a cab for a long time.

Got to office a minute before my shift starts.

My computer ain’t working. All my files are in there. All my program tools are installed there. My client’s file is in there.

I transfered to another workstation. Got disappointed because i have to re-install everything i need. I have to transfer files. Thankfully, i’ve just uploaded my files in the server.

My AIM is not working. Hopefully my clients has read my email that my AIM is not working because he might check on me and think that i am not around. Bad points. tsk!

I have to keep my calm attitude. I don’t want to be furious.

God, please grant me patience.

Happy Days In My Favorite Pants

Being yourself is the best way to interact to others. Physical look adds up to one's personality. It doesn't mean you have to be beautiful rather you have to be presentable and clean. Wearing something comfortable adds more confidence in you. And wearing your favorite clothes adds comfort.

I have always a pair pants that i could say, is my most favorite pants. I can do what I want and I can move however I want. It gives me the ease of moving around and be me in front of anybody. If you are not comfortable of what you are wearing, you this shy feeling inside and you are too sensitive that the eyes of people around are staring at you.

I got my pants from my mom. She bought it in Hong Kong when she went there. It was supposedly hers but when we she came back here and we were unpacking her suitcase, I sneaked it out and started wearing it. She didn't have the choice but gave it to me. hehe. That's I how I got it from my mom.

I do a lot of things with my pants. If it could only talk, it would have shared stories of places it have been, people it have met and conversations it have heard. It have been my best buddy whenever I go out and I feel like something is missing whenever I go out to special places or simply a day out.

I surely have lots of memories with it. I just can't remember them all.


By the way, you could share your pants experience to everyone else. There is this Dockers contest where you must create your own Dockers commercial and if your entry is chosen, you can watch your ad aired at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Don't be shy. Share your experience like I did. It would be so much fun.

Yet Another Quote 6

Being different is the hardest way to be in. But most of the time, it is the best way to live your life especially when you could be happy and free.

Standing by your principle is the toughest life battle especially when the ratio is 1:1000 wherein it’s only you on your side.

When you know you are right, then you don’t have to be afraid to fight for your side. When you are wrong, you should always have second thoughts.

Review: Chevrolet Aveo

Chevrolet Aveo

Earlier, I wrote a review about Chevrolet Aveo and it was exciting. I love cars that is why i took the opportunity to write a review.

I admit, I am not that good in technical terms but I promise, I did my best. Hope to hear your comments.

Thanks! :)

Here is my review : Chevrolet Aveo: Get Real

Chevrolet Aveo: Get Real

This was a cool ad by Chevy.

Obviously, you wouldn't want an over-accessorized car. Just all that you need is enough.

I love cars and i am amazed of their different features. And having been introduced to a model gives me the excitement. And because of their cool ad, I got insterested to check out Chevrolet Aveo. I browsed through Chevrolet Europe for what Chevrolet Aveo has to offer.

Sound tripping is the best while your on the road. Chevrolet Aveo has a audio sound system where you could play your favorite MP3 music. Who doesn't want a good relaxing tune or feet-thumping disco music while driving?

A problem every tall guy has when choosing a car is the space for their long legs. That is not a problem for this car because it has a spacious legroom for. Cool huh?

Another thing that I looked at in a car is the engine. I like the agile 1.4 72 kW/100 hp engine. Also, it is environment friendly because it emits low C02. Gotta love mother nature.

There are other features that I've read about Chevrolet Aveo. These are some of the standard features of this ride: Anti-lock breaks, front and side airbags, seatbelt pretentioners and crumple zones. It has 60/40 split rear seats for your suitcases and stuffs and lots of small storage pockets for your gadgets and accessories.

Oh my! I wouldn't want to end up with a crazy car. :)

One Thing About Lani

One thing i admired Lani and loved her for that is how she advices me about me and my mom.

Me and my mom are in a rough relationship. We quarrel a lot. So many times that i have forgotten already the count.

I have shared my problems and angst to Lani. She listens. She reacts. She shares. Among everybody else, she is the only one who kept telling me ‘have faith’ like what i always tell myself. She made me understand the difference between understanding reality and accepting it.

She is the most peculiar person I’ve met but she me understand my reasoning. I think a lot. I do a lot of it to the extend that my mind is going to explode because of a lot of thinking. She help me organize my thoughts. My numerous thoughts.

Thanks pare.
