Dishwalla's Angels or Devils
Story told at 04:09 // 0 person(s) left violent reaction(s).



This is the last time
That I'm ever gonna come here tonight
This is the last time - I will fall
Into a place that fails us all - inside

And I can see the pain in you
And I can see the love in you
But fighting all the demons will take time
It will take time

The angels they burn inside for us
Are we ever
Are we ever gonna learn to fly
The devils they burn inside of us
Are we ever gonna come back down
Come around
I'm always gonna worry about the things that could make us cold

This is the last time
That I'm ever gonna give in tonight
Are there angels or devils crawling here?
I just want to know what blurs and what is clear - to see

Will I can see the pain in you
And I can see the love in you Ohh
And fighting all the demons will take time
It will take time

The angels they burn inside for us
Are we ever
Are we ever gonna learn to fly
The devils they burn inside of us
Are we ever gonna come back down - come around
I'm always gonna worry about the things that could break us

If I want to give in - give it up
- and then
Take a breath - make it deep
Cause it might be the last one you get
Be the last one
That could make us cold, no ohhh..
You know that they could make us cold, oooh...
I'm always gonna worry about the things that could make us cold

I always hear this song from TL Kayeser's workstation. I sooo love it! Until I heard this from Richard's Multiply site. Hehe. Thanks, Chardieee!

Thanks also to Droo for sending me the MP3. You know, Limewire and BitTorrent sucked when I was about to download it. Good thing Droo's aswang, too. :))

On this day of your life, Angela, we believe God wants you to know...
... that you've been driving yourself too hard lately.

Sure, there is time to invest yourself fully into work, but there is equally important time for joyful resting. And for you, this time is now. What is the absolutely most wonderful little treat you can give yourself? Do it today.


Yea. Good morning. I sooo love this message from God. I got it through Facebook. Hehe. c:o

My day off. Yes. But this should be night off, right? :D Plans? Meet my sweetie...

Where had we been?
  • SM Marikina - met PJ and Leiyn. Car show at the basement parking.

  • Rob Metro East - ate dinner at Greenwich. watched And I Love You So...

  • Eastwood City - full parking. amp.

  • Bahay - watched Taken and 1/2 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

  • McDo Marcos - desserts with PJ. :D

Crazy day. Lovely day. :)

Ooh so random day off.
Story told at 12:46 // 0 person(s) left violent reaction(s).

I can never forget that I've done a good deed yesterday on my way home. I bought Manong's newspaper. He was strolling at White Plains (yea, strolling, haha). I already refused at first. I'm not really a newspaper reader. But as I looked at his face, the way he looked at my eyes... he was like... he was like Santino. (You know him? The little guy who called God "Bro". Bastos na bata. HAHA.) "Do a good deed today. Buy either Inquirer or Star and you'll be happy for the rest of your life." (Inglisero si Manong sa utak ko di ba.) That's what his eyes were saying. Then I realized I gave him my 20 pesos and he handed me the Philippine Star. C'mon. I was hypnotized. By Manong. :| HAHAHA. It's not a very big deal. What's 20 pesos anyway? I sit in an airconditioned room. I earn a lotta money in a very comfortable way. (Is it really very comfortable? To be the shock absorber? To be shouted, cursed and blamed by, if not all, most, of the stupid American customers of my program? NAAAAH. Yet, It's way better. Actually, really better.) Unlike that manong in the lansangan, he has to stay under the sun. Just to earn that 20 pesos na parang pinagkait ko pang ibigay sa kanya nung una. How sad. :( But at least, I was able to help him. Even for that small little way. (Small na little pa.) I know I had made him happy. :] (Manong, kung manalo ako sa lotto, babalikan kita. Para bumili ng isa pang broadsheet. HAHAHA.) The question is: tumataya ba ko sa lotto? Paksyet.

"You are a Thomasian. And I know all Thomasians are professional. I don't want you to back out for the last minute." - Lorenzo Saavedra (Pwet mo. You should have told that to yourself. Be professional. Why didn't you tell me that it's a networking company? Why didn't you just tell me the truth? Tsk. I hate you!)

I wonder why Lorenzo Saavedra hasn't called back yet? HAHAHA. I've been waiting for his call since yesterday. (You know the word "sarcasm"? Apply it to that statement. HAHA.) I don't know. Do you know him? Do you know this not-so-accommodating guy? He actually called me last Monday, scheduling me for an appointment with him. He was talking with my mom when he forced her to wake me up because he told it was a very important business call. ERRR. He wanted us to talk about some "opportunity to earn 25-30K monthly" stuff. We were about to meet on Wednesday. The way he tortured me on the telephone made me say "Yes, I'll go to the meeting." He gave me the address of their office which is 15/F Octagon Bldg. Ortigas Center, Pasig City. He asked me if I know where Ortigas is. I told him "Of course, stupid. Who doesn't know Ortigas?" I do know. After I hung up, I researched this Synergy Global (That's the name of the company he was selling.) and knew it was a global networking here. XXXXXXX. Forgot about it.

Got home today at about 10:30AM. My shift ended at 9:30AM. I logged out in Avaya at exactly 9:30AM. (As in nakabantay na ko sa Logout at Release buttons. HAHA. Ganun ako ka-excited umuwi. Actually, kami ni Jopz at Jeannie, my teammates.) I left at eTel before 9:45AM. Shocks. Nakalimutan ko, coding nga pala si Acey. Sa EDSA pa naman ako dumadaan. Buti na lang wala ung MMDA bestfriends ko. Kung hinde, WELCOME ANGELA TO BRIBERY WORLD. :)) (10AM-3PM naka-lift ang coding. Hehe.)

Nawala ung excitement ko sa Team Abbie outing when I opened my Outlook in my workstation. TL Abbie sent mail. GA Quezon Outing! Time of departure: 12:00AM, August 30, 2009, Sunday. Me pasok ako ng from 12:30AM 'til 9:30AM ng Sunday! Pano kami sasama? Sunod na lang daw kami ni Curt and Jeybs. Di na. Di na lang ako punta. Manonood na lang ako ng sine maghapon. Hmp. TL gave other options. Secret Garden in Novaliches. 9 Waves in San Mateo. Hmm... I really like in Quezon. I know they really want to go there. Kaso ung time ng alis sa eTel... Sabi ni TL, mag-half day na lang daw ako. No way. Hindi pa nga nagsstart shift ko nun eh. Haha. Isa pa I can't go absent from August 29 to 31. Napansin lang ni OM that there was a high rate of absenteeism last weekend. Since it's a nonworking holiday on Monday, he declared those days as critical workdays. Well, ewan ko kung pano na ung magiging lakad sa Sunday. Until now, wala pang super final plan. Haha. GOOD LUCK. :D

Today is Pay Day! Where is my pay? Hihi. :P

Speaking of pay, Jeannie showed me a really great motivation to get promoted. Monthly salary of employees. Tax and lots of bonuses excluded. This is the Basic Salary plus Transporation Allowance. (Pakisara na lang po ang bibig kapag napanganga. Sabi sa mail.)

Customer Service Associate 1 P12,000 + 3,000 = P15,000
Customer Service Associate 2 P18,000 + 3,000 = P21,000
Customer Service Associate 3 (nakalimutan ko ung iba.)
Team Leader P30,000 + 3,000 = P33,000
Senior Team Leader P38,000 + 3,000 = P41,000
Shift Manager P60,000 + 3,000 = P63,000
Operations Manager P180,000 + 3,000 = P183,000 (not sure)
Site Director P600,000 + 3,000 = P603,000

From the time that I saw that mail attachment until now, until forever, hindi na nawala sa isip ko yan. And I will never ever wonder again why our SD has a lot of great tops and bottoms and shoes and bags and everything. Gahd. I sooo envy her. Really. HAHAHA. Pramis. Pwede na sya bumili ng kotse every month! :)) Kaso iniisip ko, kamusta naman kaya ang workload nila noh? How's stress and pressure? Healthy pa ba sila? Or me taning na buhay dahil sa trabaho nila? HAHA. Well. At least, they can always go shopping. :P Shopping na naman. Epekto ni Becky sakin!!! (Becky as in Rebecca Bloomwood. Shopaholic. I'm on the nth page of Shopaholic Takes Manhattan. Luke Brandon looks hot in my imagination. HAHA.) Bawal na nga pala ang eBooks samin. Kaya hindi ko na mabasa un. I don't want to be known as "an employee terminated because of Shopaholic Takes Manhattan". Hehe. :P

You know, I should sleep now. I'll be having my nails done later. PJ and I will go on date tonight after his work. Yey. We'll watch And I Love You So. Yiheee.

I want to get busy with other stuff. Let me write that on my notebook. (Yes, I have a notebook. It's always in my bag everywhere I go.)

Good night, Guys. *mmmuah*

PS: Which is better, Farm Town, Farm Ville, Pet Society, Restaurant City, Barn Buddy or Mafia Wars? I'm talking about Facebook apps. :D

Got a lot of random thoughts in mind...

Whatever. Can't get over SD's P603,000/month. I wonder what she could buy with that. Shoes in Nine West. Jacket in Mango. Shirts in Terranova. Sundae in McDo. Oooops. I can buy that! Yes! Kahit pano me kaya na rin akong bilhin na nabibili nya. HAHAHA. Crazy me. Don't mind me. Don't. Mind. Me.

Pwede bang mag-rebelde ngayong buwan? :D

Ba-bye.
Babush.
See ya.
Ciao.

Gusto ko mag-aral! AT... Ayoko nang magtrabaho! :)))))) ... Marami... akong gusto! Gusto ko ng changes! Gusto ko ng bagong mundo! (Gusto ko ng sariling mundo?) NAKAKASAWA NA! Hmp. :[

Visit my Facebook account here. That's my latest post. No, actually, that's not my latest post. I'm a FB addict now. HAHA. Well, what can you say about that?

Eto na naman. Magba-blog na naman ako. Wala naman akong sasabihin...

I wish I could stay under the shower forever...

I think I need to reinstall my YM. It's got a lot of error messages. Tsk. This laptop really needs to be formatted. I've been experiencing all sorts of inconvenience in this piece of shit technology. Phew.

Been hooked with Facebook lately. There are a lot more users of Facebook than Friendster these days. I, myself, am one of those users. HAHA. Real time applications are way better than turtle-paced updates. :D I sooo enjoy FFS (Friends for Sale). ^^

Today's the 24th of August. New schedule tonight! My shift starts at 12:30AM and ends at 9:30AM. Argh. But I think, this one's better. (Not considering the ND pay. Haha.)

I want to watch movies. (In plural form: that means more than 1.) The Proposal. My Sister's Keepers. Up. And I Love You So. Time Traveler's Wife. How about Taken? They told me it's a good movie. It was a 2008 movie, right? I believe I have a DVD here. Let me watch it on my next off. :D

I'll sleep at 12NN.

FML is a very good site for all ages. HAHAHA. Want to see it? Here.

Yesterday. Sunday = Day off. After shift, Connie, Jude, Angelbert and I had breakfast at Tropical Hut. Ordered Tocino with fried rice and sunny-side-up egg. *yum* (With coffee and pineapple juice. Yikes.) Left at past 8AM. Dropped off Connie at Katipunan. Drove straight to Antipolo. Attended Sunday mass with PJ. Stayed in their house until 1PM. Went to Victory Liner EDSA to fetch my family who spent a 3-day vacation in Baguio. Got my new jacket and bolero. Another debt to pay. :s

Let me share you something.

Photo grabbed from Mark's Facebook.

What can you say about this?

Oh yea. You're seeing it right. The building with a cross at the center is the University of Santo Tomas Main Building. That photo was taken on August 22, 2009. (This photo was grabbed. I just read the caption.) Haaay... I've been wanting to see that UST Sea since first year college. Why didn't God grant my wish to experience that when I was still studying? Hmmm. :[

I just read Tin's tweet that she wants an ice cream. Now I want to eat ice cream, too. Specifically ice cream cake by Bake & Churn. Antidepressant. Yum! :]

I hate being where I am now. I hate it more when they let me feel that way. Damn.

I want to have a total makeover of myself. New wardrobe. New haircut. New hairstyle. New lifestyle. New policies. Haaay. I want to be a different person now. As in NOW.

You know what, I want to go somewhere else. Somewhere away from my real normal life. I feel so stressed and depressed. Only Caleruega can save me from this.

Still looking forward to a brighter tomorrow.

NOT IN GOOD MOOD.

YouTube and Imeem Day
Story told at 13:00 // 0 person(s) left violent reaction(s).

Just got the "feeling" of visiting YouTube and imeem. Here are the results.

You Belong With Me


A very cute song by Taylor Swift. The first time I saw it (and heard of it) was on MYX. Loved the video. Hehe. :)

Lyrics? Just try to google it. :D

I Just Can't Stop Loving You


What I was supposed to post here is a video from YouTube. The audio was just too low that's why I just got it in imeem. Crap. 30-second preview. Err. Just click the "Play full song here" link. Haha. I really want you to hear this. (But I'm not tooo desperate. Just slight.) It's a better version than Michael Jackson's. Ooops. :D

Sooo in love... This song was performed by Gloria Estefan and James Ingram on Michael Jackson's 30th Anniversary Tribute Concert. Gahd, perfect match.

***

A total bum here.

Want to leave home. Again. Drained gas. Err. I want to have a real Mocha Frappuccino in Starbucks. I had one yesterday. For the purpose of saying it to my mom. :))

Had enough sleep last night. Got home at almost 1AM. Slept at 1:30AM. Woke up at 9AM. Now, how can I sleep later? Need to be in the office by 9:45PM. Tsk.

I love everything in Terranova. Really. I want to go back there! :D

On this day of your life, Angela, we believe God wants you to know...
... that you cannot wait anymore.

The moment has finally come. You have no choice. You have to take that step now. Now. Not tomorrow, not in an hour, - Now! If anyone else is reading this, they would be confused. But not you. You know exactly what we mean. Do it. Now.

-- God wants You to Know on Facebook [20AUG2009]

I wonder what that is. Got a lot of thoughts in mind... Which one will I consider?... Pft.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has been named the 44th most powerful woman in the world, according to Forbes magazine. Waw. That's so cool. :P I wish I could be one, too. Kahit pang-1000000000. :))))))

Bro. Mike Velarde, El Shaddai, wants to be a president. Boooooooooooooooo! Even if he waves his hand up high and prays a lot to God, if the big-time government officials will continue to steal money from us, there'll never be a chance that we'll get out of this "underdeveloped" image. "Nasa Diyos ang awa, nasa tao ang gawa," ika nga. And praying is not just what "gawa" means.

Web design project for Dreamworks Travel and Tours... coming soon! Wish me luck. :)

Live life to the fullest! Do what makes you happy! Consider other people, but consider yourself more. Intiende?

Have a great day ahead. :)

Please watch this video.


Tornado rips through 2 Bulacan towns

I noticed Gerwin was online so I bugged him. Haha. (BTW, it was his 21st birthday on the 15th. Did you greet him? Hehe.) He then told me that a tornado had conquered two busy towns of Bulacan: Guiguinto and Balagtas.

He gave me several links but I preferred the one with the video. That's how much I really wanted to see a real tornado - as if what I can see in American shows aren't real. Haha. Good thing, DSL's back to its normal speed - it's slow, but not as slow as last week. (Click here to open the link.) The news said, that 110-kilometer-per-hour tornado that destructed about P1.2 Million worth of properties was still weak. What the heck does PAGASA say? It's still not weak? Posts and trees that had fallen down, roofs that had peeled off, people who had been hurt? Would that still be considered a weak tornado after causing too much inconvenience to people in the said towns? C'mon. (Why am I freaking out like this? HAHAHA.) Anyway, (blah-blah) after a cumulus-nimbus cloud is formed, a tornado comes to the scene. PAGASA added another item in my brain. Cool. :D

But I can prove how cheerful Filipinos really are. As I was watching the video, I saw some people who could still afford to smile and wave his hand to the camera even though he was staying beside a roof that was peeled off from a building. HAHAHA. I couldn't help but laugh when I saw that. :))

Thanks, Gerwin, for sharing this one. I realized that I haven't watched the telly in a while. (Telly is a television. I learned it from Becky -- Rebecca Bloomwood, Confessions of a Shopaholic. BTW, I'm already on the 191st page of 287.)

What if I were the one who saw that? That would be fun, right? I mean, it's cool. I'd stay inside an invisible tube or bubble so I won't get hurt. HAHA. (Err. Just to clarify... I just want to see it. I don't want to experience it. There's a big difference between those terms. OK? OK?)

Got home at 3:10AM.

OVERVIEW OF MY SUNDAY [16AUG2009]
    → I had breakfast with my officemates.
    → I went to a simple despedida party for my cousin.
    → I met a schoolmate in Blue Wave Marquinton.
    → I met my boyfriend in Robinson's Metro East.
    → I celebrated the Feast of San Roque with my church friends.
    → I was supposed to go to Angono with Team Phoenix.
I would like to dedicate this blog to everyone who made my day worthwhile. :]

I had breakfast with my officemates.
My teammates from Team Abbie and I decided to have breakfast altogether. Originally, we were Connie, Jude, Anna, Angelbert and I. But there were quite changes; Jude couldn't come because her mom would go to Baguio and no one would take care of her baby, Anna's off. What we did was we just invited our other teammates. Finally, we had the list of who could come: Angela Solomon, Connie Cruz, Angelbert Bataller, Abe Apalit and Jim Bansuelo. The shift of Bambam Bonita and Bonbon Boniol would end at 8AM; we waited until that time so everybody would be able to come. That's how important that breakfast was. HAHA.

My tummy pets were crying out loud. We decided to eat at Yellow Cab. (Not McDonald's, not Chowking, not Mang Inasal, not Tropical Hut.) 18" Manhattan Meatlovers and Charlie Chan. In a matter of less than 30 minutes, everyone's SOLVED. *burp* No more hunger strike for my tummy pets. HAHAHA. :D

We were there about 8:10AM and we left at about 11:10AM. We just enjoyed the company of each other, shared call experiences, laughed with ourselves, and forgot there were other people in that place, too. Haha. :P

We left there with the feeling of we-will-be-having-this-kind-of-bonding-again-soon. :)

(I had my cam. It's in my bag. I just forgot about it. Bullsh*t. HAHA.)

I went to a simple despedida party for my cousin.
I am talking about my cousin, Lizel. Yea, she's my cousin. (Accept it.) She's leaving for Cayman. I knew she's leaving but I didn't know it's that soon. When I woke up last night from a two-hour sleep, I wondered why no one's at home. When my mom came back to check on me, she told me about this and I went to their house to say my farewell messages. (It was just, "Aalis ka na pala, wala man lang akong kamalay-malay! Anong oras flight mo? *Then she answered, 5:55PM pero dapat before 12NN andun na ko. Kumain ka na muna!* Ah. Naku, aalis ako eh. Sige, ingat ka na lang dun saka good luck! *Embraced her and gave my good-luck kiss.*" As simple as that. Haha. Poor me. I was speechless, you know.) Well, I wish her all the best. She deserves it. :] (I didn't even bother to say "Hi" to my Kuya who's also there. Hehe. Sorry naman, Kuya. Do you still exist? Hehe. Sorry naman ulit. HAHAHA.)

I met a schoolmate in Blue Wave Marquinton.
She's April. Fourth year IT student in UST. She was actually my batchmate in OLOPSC.

We were supposed to meet at 6:30PM but I woke up at 6:30PM. HAHAHA. My alarm clock wasn't that useful. Good thing she called. If not because of my loud ringtone, I would have not been able to wake up.

Met her at almost 7PM. We had to meet because she got something from me. We met at Starbucks Blue Wave. (If you only knew how much I wanted to go inside and get a Mocha Frappuccino. Venti. VENTI!!! Ehem...) She was going to Sta Lu and I to Rob so I told her to just come with me. On our way, we just talked about our dear professors and our Alma Mater, UST. Haha. She looks good in her new hair cut. Hehe. I like that one for her. :)

I met my boyfriend in Robinson's Metro East.
We had a simple complicated simple misunderstanding a few days ago. And I didn't want to end the week without letting him release his inis-asar-badtrip-depression-stress to me. We met in McDonald's Rob at past 7PM. Ikot ng ikot. Rob to Sta Lu. He looked for shoes. I looked for myself. HAHA. I just didn't know what to look for, actually. Haha.

We talked about it casually. As if he wanted to punch me. HAHA. But he's still sweet. (He always is. He should be. HAHAHA. Kiddin'.) Since I was going to handaan, Coke Float, Choco Sundae and Twister Fries at McDonald's made our day. :) *sweet*

Are we okay now? Yes, we are okay. I think we are. We should be. I don't want this relationship to be ruined because of some idiot moves. I've been an idiot in my whole life. I don't want to prove that this time to one person. To him.

On the 21st, we'll be celebrating our 8th monthsary. Greet us! Greet us! :D

I celebrated the Feast of San Roque with my church friends.
After I met PJ in Rob, I went straight to Kuya Ron's place. Feast of San Roque. He invited me a few weeks ago. I was excited because I would be able to see my church friends again. I missed them a lot! (And I will be missing them again.)

Who's there? More than 20 Eco-DMT members plus Kuya Ron's friends and/or relatives.

What happened there? Kainan. (Syempre.) Videoke. (Hindi yan mawawala. Pinanganak silang me kasabay na microphone.) Inuman. (Water, RC, Iced Tea, San Mig Light, The Bar, Fundador and Tequila. Were you able to see the transition? HAHA. I would like to acknowledge Beto and Pipo for being the heads of the drinking session. As always. Haha.) Picture-an. (Vain people.) Beer shower. (Save water. Use beer. Sino nga ba nagpasimuno? Haha.) Nagbukas-kotse. (Thanks to Pipo and Kuya Ian and Kuya Ron and Beto and Franz and Ate Ning and Dusty and Lean for the soooper help.) HAHA. I forgot my keys inside the van. Ayyy naku. Super effort. Umuwi pa ko ng bahay... gamit motor ni Kuya Ron. (Marunong pa pala ko nun.) Hindi naman nagising si Mommy. Balik ulit. Punta sila kina Franz para kumuha ng susi nung Lite Ace nila; baka sakaling gumana. Through Pipo and Kuya Ian's amazing powers, the doors were opened. Hail to them! *kneels* Uwi na. What time? 3AM.

I just wondered why, after all I had drunk, I didn't have hangover. Ni hindi ko naramdamang nalasing ako. :))

Some photos I would like to share:

This is the deadly "drink chooser". I am not sure how this one is called. Haha. You get either Tequila, Fundador or The Bar. Thank you, Beto and Pipo, sa pag-spin. :))


Beto (on his lasing pose) and I. He advised me to use this blog to earn money. Haha. I'll take that. :] TY, Beto! Ayan, nagpakita na ko ha. HAHA.


Franz and Kuya Ron. Moments like this are the ones that I miss about them.


Matira-matibay shot. From left to right: Beto, ME, Pipo, Dimple, Dusty and Lean.


Another Matira-matibay shot. From front to back: Baruth, Ate Ning, JC, ME, Pipo, Dimple, Lean, Kuya Chad and Kuya Ron.


Beto. Cause: San Mig Light + Tequila + Fundador + The Bar (+ Iced Tea + RC). Effect: Antok. :))


Pipo and I. I missed this kulit guy! BTW, thanks (pati ke Kuya Ian) sa pagbukas ng pinto nung Lite Ace. Tsk, ma-macho. Pwede na kayo magbukas-kotse! :]


Pipo and Baruth: Two of my Eco-DMT favorites. :)


Kuya Ron, na-miss ka lang nila... :D (Kuya Ron is the guy in green. Surrounded by "evil" forces. HAHA. Pipo?! What are you doing?!)

Hope you enjoyed. HAHA. :P

I was supposed to go to Angono with Team Phoenix.
I couldn't come. I had told them since last week that I'd just try to go there after the feast celebration. But after all the tragedies that happened with my keys, my buddies didn't allow me to leave and go there. Haha. Beto's even scolding me. Parang lalaki raw ako mag-drive, kung makatutok ako, tapos pupunta ako dun ng alas-2 ng madaling araw? Haha. Sorry naman. :D

In our first week with Team Phoenix. They already invited us (Curt, Jeybs and I) to go to Minnie's place in Angono to celebrate three different parties: Despedida, Welcome and Wedding Parties. Despedida party for Minnie because she filed a resignation letter last month so she could concentrate on her studies. (I guess so. Because she's studying. She has 8AM-6PM class Mondays through Fridays. Her shift is from 10PM to 7AM, Mondays through Fridays. Come to think about it.) Welcome party for us. Like what I mentioned in my older post, we have been deployed to Team Phoenix from Team Abbie when my former TL Abbie was thrown to the Libis site. (Thrown? Haha.) Wedding party for TL Anne. She just got married on the 31st of July as what my teammate told me. :)

I wish I could go with them next time. :D

***

Let's be random.

Do you know how much I wanted to watch The Proposal? A while ago, I looked for the movie schedules for today. In SM Megamall Cinema 4, there will be a show at 7:15PM. Let's say, the movie is two hours long, 'til 9:15PM, ohy, I still have enough time to prepare for work. Haha.

I also want to watch Orphan and My Sister's Keepers. Many say these are great movies. I'm so curious. Haha. Show at 7:05PM. Better. :P

We'll be on Dress Up for the whole week. Pft. I think I should start buying new clothes and shoes now. Mom and Dad, I need your financial help. NYAHA!

I'm excited to read again the Confessions of a Shopaholic. I'm on the fifteenth chapter. (Fifteenth instance of being a shopaholic. HAHA.) I can sooo much relate to the topic. I feel I'm like Rebecca "Becky" Bloomwood. Ooh, yea. Jude and Connie call me "Becky". Is it because of that? Do they know Becky? HAHAHA! :))

What's going to happen this week? Will there be something good happening to me? Will there be something extraordinary happening to me? Hmm. I'm looking forward to that. :D

I've got a new Plurk layout. Check it out here. Tell me if it's okay or not. (If not, I'll kill you... KIDDIN'.)

My mouth hurts. Meron akong singaw. I wonder why. I brush my teeth three times a day. I drink a lot of water. WTF. Hirap magsalita. Pft.

Let me rest and lay down my bed at 11AM. 11AM-7 or 7:30PM. Will I be oversleeping? Hmm. That's fine. I think it's better than undersleeping. :P

I saw Aya in her Monday uniform. Want to see her? Here:

I wonder why she doesn't look like Cha (the cute little Bulilit girl) anymore.

Tsk. Tigilan na 'to.

Ciao. ^_____________^

PS: "Life is a game. I'm just playing with it." Where did I get this? Does it come from me? Did someone quote this? Tsk. Anyway. Life is a game. Just play with it. :]

Since 2004, 2005 or 2007?
Story told at 08:20 // 0 person(s) left violent reaction(s).

I saw Paw's page and I was able to read one of her posts; she was greeting her blog a happy second birthday. Haha. It's cute. Then I found myself trying to look for my blog's birthday and knew that I've been blogging under this account since May 2007 but I believe I've been blogging since high school (about 2003 or 2004). And I realized that I've had a lot of different blog sites before. But good thing I've stuck myself to this blog. It's so hard to manage a lot of sites, you know. Haha. :D

Well, today's Thursday. Yesterday's my off and I miss going to work. (HAHAHA. Plastik!) Will go to work again tonight. Will hear nonsense words from my callers again. Pft. Hehe. But what I'm excited about is, I can read the Confessions of a Shopaholic again during avail time. :>

PJ and I met yesterday. Yes, we met yesterday. We met at SM Marikina after his work and I slept. (for two hours.) :D Just roamed around. Ate dinner. Bought some stuff. But since the mall was closing at 9PM and I didn't want to go home yet, we went to Kapitan Moy and enjoyed the cold breeze of air and each other's company. :) It's his idea. And I loved it. I hoped we had more time. We went home at past 10PM. And that's the time I started missing him again... I hope to see him again on our 8th monthsary on the 21st. (Why not this weekend? I'll be quite busy with my social life. Hehe.)

I slept at almost 12MN last night and woke up at past 7:30AM. Pano na naman ako matutulog mamayang hapon???

Won't go online until weekends. I want to rest my eyes. And the internet connection is messing up. A segment of the Asia-Pacific Cable Network 2 (APCN2) undersea cable network between China and Taiwan suffered a serious cable fault on Wednesday, causing Internet traffic to be rerouted onto other undersea cables and slowing Internet access for some users in Southeast Asia. Read more here. Thanks, Xty and Paw for the info. :)

Tomorrow is Pay Day. ^^ But I'm not going to somewhere I will find temptation. (Greenhills, SM, etc.) I just want to eat and eat and eat...

Team Abbie's planning to have an outing on the 30th. We'll go to Quezon. Yiiii! I'm excited. :]

Got nothing else to say. But let me share you this quote before I end this blog. :)

Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.

Story told at 10:03 // 0 person(s) left violent reaction(s).

I am already on the 58th page of the Confessions of a Shopaholic -- a book for impulsive buyers like Becky Bloomwood and ME. :)) I sooo love it. But tonight's my off. So I'll be reading that again on Thursday night. Can't wait. :P (Why can't I just download an eBook here in my laptop? Pft. HAHA.)

I almost got late last night! I fingerscanned at 9:55PM. Oh c'mon. Less than 5 minutes to pull up my tools. I had to run... on high heels. HAHA! :)) Good thing my tools were in "good mood" last night. Haha. Of all the days to experience heavy traffic in Ortigas, why last night, when I left home at 8:50PM? Malas. Well, at least I wasn't late. :D I don't want to break my record. They're having a good professional impression towards me. (Unlike in college, define tardiness? Angela Solomon. Haha.)

Lady Gaga had her concert last night at The Big Dome. I've seen the poster in the MRT Cubao Station about it. You know what, she's the worst-dressed woman I've ever seen. Curt and I have been looking at her pictures in E! Online and for some reasons, we react violently. But I love some of her songs. One of that is Wonderful. (I remember Ishee. I knew this song from her Multiply page.) Well, I once liked Just Dance and Poker Face. (I miss Grace.) These songs somehow made me groove. \:D/

I wonder why I have no records that I went to work on the 1st of August. I want to eat 'em alive. Err. I hope this won't affect the grades in my scorecard. Good thing I'm meeting all the metrics. Nothing too much to worry about. My TL barged twice with me. She's nice. She's way BETTER than Danise. Haha. I remember Danise used to eat me alive during my Nesting period -- when I didn't know anything yet and she's expecting I knew everything already. And now, everytime I see her on the floor, she tells me she misses me. (I just love her because she keeps on calling me "Ganda". HAHAHA!) Should I be sad because she's not my teammate anymore? Or happy because she's not my SME (Subject-matter expert) anymore? :)) OMG. Peace, Danise. HAHA. Love you. :D

One of the clients of eTelecare visited the floor during my shift. He's a Black American. Literally. Haha. I didn't see him closely. I should've brought a pen and paper for his signature. (Oops, paperless environment. HAHA.) I'd better see Michael. He's our QA Manager. And the coolest QA Manager I've ever known! ;)

I had my last call at 6:57AM. Tsss. 3 minutes before I log out. What's worse is: Last call = sup call. (A call escalated to the supervisor.) X_X He was actually not irate. As well as my TL. Haha. The call finished at 7:30AM. That's why I had the chance to be with Angelbert up to the MRT Shaw Station. I missed him. :] Jude, Connie and I are missing him. We haven't been together for ages. (OA.)

I want to meet Bob Ong in person.

What do I still want to share? Hmmm.

I'm sleepy. A bit. But I have to sleep. Because I'm going to the clinic to accompany my mom at 2:30PM and I'm going to meet PJ in SM Marikina at 7PM.

Lovin' my new team. And teammates.

I've been waiting for the results of my Holter Monitoring stuff for a long time now. I wonder why Miss Lala hasn't messaged me yet. The results of exams (Chest Xray and 2-D Echo) were normal. I concluded the ECG results just wanted to make me feel nervous. It succeeded. And I almost had an actual heart attack because of that. Err. Anyway, results were normal. Nothing to worry about. :D

I blogged.

Target: 8 Hours
Story told at 10:49 // 0 person(s) left violent reaction(s).

I had finished reading The Zahir yesterday afternoon. That's why I only had 3 1/2 hours of sleep. What about the ending? BITIN.

I started reading an e-book of Confessions of a Shopaholic this morning when I saw Jeybs, my teammate, reading some e-books from the Public Drive. Haha. The story's sooo cool. I sooo can relate. :))

'Twas a light day. I was lucky. Haha. No irate callers. IDK, maybe they're possessed. It's so new to me to end a day with 16 nice calls. Haha. But stupid callers were still there. And will always be there. :D

My team leader's back. I think I'm going to love her the way I love TL Abbie. She's nice and friendly. Easy to approach. No wonder our tenure teammates are very close to her. They even had a Bridal Shower for her. (She got married kasi.) I just saw the pictures in Facebook. And it's so "parental guidance". HAHA!

Today's Tuesday. Tomorrow's Wednesday. PJ and I are going to the mall tomorrow. Yea, we're going to the mall. But we will never attempt to go to SM Taytay again. My most traumatic mall experience happened there. (HAHA. As if something so strange happened. Naliitan lang naman ako. Hahaha!) SM Marikina is much much much better. HAHA. :P I'd better meet him there. So I can bring The Zahir to Knic. She's borrowing my book. I'm more than willing to lend it to her. I just want to spread Paulo Coelho's inspirational words.

Nothing's so new. I just want to blog.

I got so addicted to Friends For Sale in Facebook. Haha! I'm worth $1M! I love this one because I can own anyone I can never own in the real world, and the other way around. :P

I just bought a new blouse from Lizel. Haha. Now I'm planning to buy white leggings to match with this blouse. But you know what, I'm starting to save money... (Really???) That's why I'm thinking about it sooo hard. HAHA. I better finish reading the Confessions of a Shopaholic. Bankruptcy is the answer. :))

I've been craving for chocolates since last week. I don't know why. Is it because I'm stressed? Hmm. I should've taken the Stress Test in FB so I would know how stressed I am. Hahaha. (As if the results were true...)

I'll be busy on Sunday. It's the Feast of San Roque and I have to go to Kuya Ron's place so I won't have to treat him in Sbarro and give him bonggang-bonggang sundae that I promised if I'm not going to show up. After that, I'll go to Angono, Rizal. Welcome Party + Minnie's Despedida Party + Happy Wedding Party with Team Phoenix. I should get complete sleep on Sunday morning after I hear the Sunday mass. :] I think I'll be missing half of my life at eTelecare if I'm not going to join them.

I want: Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino. Venti. Manhattan Meatlovers. Yellow Cab. Marble Brownie ala Fudge. Shakey's. Lasagna. Greenwich. Chicken Teriyaki. Teriyaki Boy. Tiramisu Meltdown. Red Ribbon. Cadbury Milk Chocolate Notebook... MTM. (Many to mention. Magastos ako.) I also want: Fishball, Kwek-Kwek and Sago ni Ate Ruth sa Kapitan Moy. Hershey's Dark Chocolate Sundae in Ministop. Barbecue sa Gilid ng OLA. Fish Crackers na Maanghang During Sunday Ope with Eco-DMT. Etc.

Stop here. My eyes are half-closed. :D

Last day of mourning? We'll forever mourn.
Story told at 07:59 // 0 person(s) left violent reaction(s).

Today is Monday.

It's August 10, 2009. 10 days after we lost our mother. Remember when PGMA announced that August 1-10, 2009, there will be a nationwide mourning for the death of President Cory. Today is the last day. But after this day, do you think she and what she did for all of us will still remembered by millions of people around the world? Well, definitely. :]

Time flies so fast. Parang nung isang araw kakapasok ko lang sa work, tapos mamaya pasok na naman. But Sunday was a great day. After almost two weeks, I got to see my boyfriend again. I was with him the whole day. I went to Antipolo Church after my shift to attend the mass with him. I hadn't heard a sermon from a priest for more than a month. And that's a real shame. Tss. :/

Home at 7PM. Just kissed my mom and dad. Went straight to bed. When I woke up, it was already 4AM. What the! :))

Aya was here. Just got out of bed. Just this morning, my mom told me that she had a new haircut. I thought she just had a trim. But when I saw her a while ago, I was shocked when I see Cha (the girl in the Camella commercial: Bulilit, bulilit, sanay sa masikip...) in her. Look at her! Hmp!

I grabbed my cam and took a picture of her.


This was how she looked like with long hair. Which is better? Haha. BTW, she's already schooling at El Best Friends. That's her TWTh school uniform. I hate the black shoes. HAHA.


I just can't move on. HAHAHA! If my kuya sees this, he'll mourn. He doesn't want her daughter's hair to be like that. Hehe. Well, he's so far. What's he gonna do? :))

The Zahir: 20 more pages left to read. Will read it later in the shop. (I'll have Acey washed! Yihaaa!) I'm so excited to finish it. Will buy another book of Paulo Coelho. Still thinking if Eleven Minutes or By The River Piedra I Sat And Wept. :P

My mom and lola are making Minatamis na Saging. I'm excited. :D Yea, my lola's here in Manila with us since Saturday. They went to Cavite to fetch her. She stayed at my tita's house until this morning, then I fetched her there when I bought pandesal in the bakery near my tita's house. Pandesal with kape for breakfast. Haaay. Yummm! :]

I think I'm going to meet my team leader tonight. She'd be back from her two-week leave. (She got married. Weee! Congratulations, TL Ann!) ^^

Reality... I'm ready to face you. With courage and beauty. HAHAHA!

PS: I love you, PJ. Big time.

It's not enough.
Story told at 08:44 // 1 person(s) left violent reaction(s).

It's not that I'm not happy. Maybe, I'm just very much concentrating with other things that it makes me forget I still have that thing.

Gahd da... I just got home. (Hmm, not really. About 8:30?) Home alone. They went to Cavite to fetch my grandmother who's going to stay with us here until her birthday. (That would be on 2nd of September.)

This day wasn't so stressful. I just got a lot of "Fuck", "Shit", "Bullshit" and "Crap". Had them for breakfast. At this very moment? Already digested. :D People are really sooo demanding. I wonder how God can handle each one of us. Admit it, all of us are like the Americans I've been talking with since June; we demand so much that we do not notice we are already hurting others' feelings. If only I could tell them how stupid they really are, then one soul in this world would me happy. (Mine.)

Paulo Coelho's The Zahir. I am on the 200th page. 98 pages to go. I have this with me during my shift so I would have something to read during avail time. A novel of obsession. Sooo great. I will never wonder why he became an international bestselling author. I just have to finish this until next week (or before next week) then I'm going to buy the Eleven Minutes. My officemate told me it's a good book, too. :D Then after I finish that, I'm gonna buy another book again. Eleven minutes. By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept. Until I get to buy all his books. That's how obsessed I am. :))

I want to do a lot of things. I just don't know where to start. They say I've been very busy, that's why. I say, I don't have enough time. But is my reason enough? What enough time do I need? Pft. C'mon, proper time management! I've been trying to get this one since college! When will you be mine? :/

I heard a Plurk sound on my lappie that's why I tried to open my Plurk tab. I saw someone responded to my friend's plurk: it was a video about the "pambababastos DAW kay Tita Cory". Here is it. (Sorry Willie, I have to post this. I can't stand it.)


I understand why Willie said those things. He has a point. What I don't understand is why he did it on-air. It's really so tough to be a host of a noontime show, trying to make a lot of people happy, then suddenly, an update on a funeral convoy of the woman he admired most is being shown. That's insulting in his part, too. If you were in his shoes, you'd do the same thing. Unless you have a really high self-control. His words were just not appropriate but if you'll get to see his reason/point of saying that, you would understand. I just saw some responses in the YouTube and I just can't help but to share my thoughts. I knew it yesterday with my mom. At first, I thought MTRCB's just getting a hole to suspend Willie again. Pft.

Last day of the week today! Looking forward to 30-minute avail time in between each calls so I could finish reading The Zahir. Hehehe.

Got to sleep now!
I sooo love the air!

PS: When will I see you? When shift bids? Are we still in good terms by that time? Hate me.

What future does Manila Bulletin look forward to?
Story told at 09:10 // 1 person(s) left violent reaction(s).

Just had my favorite breakfast: hotdog. :]

I got home at 8:30AM. I had to wait for my officemate, Jude, to finish her last call before I left the office, since we have the same schedule (10PM-7AM).

I logged in to Twitter and saw one of Jim Paredes' tweets: Manila Bulletin makes mistaken caption of 'the coffin of PRESIDENT ARROYO out of the Manila Cathedral. Uh Oh!!! I got so curious that's why I googled it. (Thanks, Google.) I was able to open one blogger's site and saw a screenshot of it.

Photo grabbed from Slingshot Journals.

I do not know how to react. I ended up adding this site in my list. Hmm, I ain't a super anti-PGMA citizen. But I admit that I laughed when I knew this. But now, I feel sooo sad for what might happen to Manila Bulletin. Is this is a typographical error? A human error? Or sabotage? Whatever. What I know is, there is actually no way her wake be allowed in Manila Cathedral; only President Cory Aquino would be the only ordinary citizen (meaning, not a member of church) allowed.

Cory's funeral is still a hot topic. Most people can't get over yet. She and her deeds have been the content of all the news, broadsheets, tabloids, forums, talks and even our Shift Managers congratulatory message to the top performers in AT&T.

The last mass held for Cory was the most emotional mass I've ever heard. It was made more emotional because of the songs sang by different artists: Our Father by Erik Santos, I Fell In Love With The Same Woman Three Times by Jose Mari Chan, Magkaisa by Sarah Geronimo, Bayan Ko by Lea Salonga and Handog Ng Pilipino Sa Mundo by APO Hiking Society and other singers.

I also salute to the four military guards who sacrificed for 7 1/2 hours just to serve the late president during her last hours. I knew that they'll be given medals and promoted to a position they deserve. :]

Enough for this. I'm not in the mood now. My hands are hurting because of the door knob of the master's bedroom that I tried to unlock. Bullsh*t. Skin peeling. :[

Ciao. Looking forward to another good day.
Got to sleep now. Good night.

The only person in world history who became a president by fate and not by ambition.

The mother of democracy... The light of our nation and her legacy lives on forever...

The Filipinos are worth LIVING for.
Story told at 04:27 // 0 person(s) left violent reaction(s).

We cannot determine when we die, but we can determine how we die. How we die can be determined by how we live.

A woman of character... A woman of prayer... A woman for others... President Corazon Aquino (1933-2009).

After my shift on Saturday morning at 7AM, I went straight to the pantry to get some Milo (but it was not available; I had no choice but to get cold water to soothe my thirst and dry throat). I saw a group of people who looked so serious, sad and shocked while watching the television. I got curious that's why I stood near the TV and knew that the news was all about the death of the Philippines' former president Corazon Aquino who fought with her colon cancer for more than a year. She died peacefully of cardio-respiratory arrest at 3:18AM in Makati Medical Center.

I remember, during our nesting (that was about a month ago), Hero told us that Cory already died. I was so shocked that after work, when I got home, that was the first question that I asked to my mom: "Patay na si Cory???" Hmmm. His not-so-funny joke had come true. It wasn't really funny. We just lost the person behind the freedom that we enjoy now. We just lost a person who became an inspiration to everyone especially to us, women, who think that we can't be a big part of the world.

Yellow ribbons were scattered all over the country since the president was hospitalized a month ago to show respect to the person who became an important figure in the Philippine history. To show support, please post this yellow ribbon in your social networking sites (Friendster, Facebook, Multiply, etc).

"I would rather die a meaningful death than to live a meaningless life." -- President Corazon Aquino

Yes, she was able to have a very meaningful life. She even shared this with all of us. The words "Thank you so much" will never be enough to show how grateful we are to the first woman president of our country.

Her remains lies at La Salle Green Hills but will later be brought to Manila Cathedral. A lot of supporters queued and sacrificed just to see this woman of freedom and democracy and give their condolences to the Aquino family.
