3 points!!!

last night we went time-zoning.

we played basketball and as usual, nilampaso na naman ako si sammie. tuwa na rin ako kasi 166 na best score ko heheh (as in tuwa ako kasi nagtatatalon pa ako e hehehe).

well, sam also improved her record. 392 lang naman. masyadong pakitang gilas ang hitad, tapos mag rereklamo ndi maka hinga at nag sisikip ang dibdib sa sobrang pagod hahaha.

hindi nya alam, pinagbibigyan ko talga sya at ayoko lang mapagod. ngek.


last thurs, naligaw kami sa CCP complex at nag punta sa Aliwan Fiesta. Sinadya namin talga yung bazaar, kaso konti lang ang tinda so naglibot libot na lang kami.

we just bought ilocos empanada (kasi ndi namin ito natikman noong nagpunta kami). Masarap naman kaso puro gulay at P50 isa -- in pernes malaki sya, kasing laki yata ng kalahating pinggan.

then bought also tibok-tibok -- from bulacan (I wanted sam to taste it) and tamales. Masarap naman daw sabi ng mom nya, kaso bat daw isang tamales lang binili namin. ngek.

After our bazaar-ing, we had dinner sa tabi tabi lang (around aliw theater). Yung barker ng foodhaus sumisigaw ng 'maraming ulam! maraming ulam!", so sabi ko ke sam, 'dito na lang tayo marami daw ulam!' (na parang PG lang kami). haha nadinig nuong barker tumawa lang ehhehe.

then may show kung saan parang kitikiti ang mocha group (yung parang fiesta talga sa barrio ang program nila) at nakinuod kami. bumili kami ng hotdog at nanginain sa grandstand.


Naalala ko tuloy noong kabataan ko kapag piyesta sa lola ko. Manonood o iilaw kami sa prosisyon sa gabi. Pagkatapos ay may palabas sa Plaza (singing contest o kaya naman miss bading contest hehe). Minsan din may mga artistang imbitado. Tapos pag nakamayan mo, hindi ka maghuhugas ng kamay heheh (but I didnt experience that, i was too young -- palusot!)

wala lang. bitin.

You Belong To Me

See the pyramids along the Nile

Watch the sunrise from a tropic isle

Just remember darling all the while

You belong to me


See the market place in old Algiers

Send me photographs and souvenirs

Just remember when a dream appears

You belong to me


And I'll be so alone without you

Maybe you'll be lonesome, too


Fly the ocean in a silver plane

See the jungle when it's wet with rain

Just remember 'til you're home again

You belong to me


And I'll be so alone without you

Maybe you'll be lonesome, too


Fly the ocean in a silver plane

See the jungle when it's wet with rain

Just remember 'til you're home again

You belong to me

i love you mikoy.

semi summer outing

Two weeks ago, had a biglaang outing (swimming) at Dream Wave Resort.

My mistress actually saw the resort being featured in a tv show and asked me about it.  I googled it, and went there with sam and cuz raffia the next day.

Brought baon of chicken empanada, indian mango, chips.


[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="384" caption="takaw sa mangga!"]takaw sa mangga![/caption]


It's just a small place, but it suited our need since we only wanted to take a dip, and was only there for a couple of hours.  We went early in the evening (sam the fish doesn't want a tan).


Just hope that the 'wave' effect is longer and more frequent.  Well,  I guess it was named DREAM WAVE coz you have to 'dream' of the wave heheh


A half-pounder a heavier

Tried this at McDo McApagal:

Two quarter-pounder patties, two slices of cheese, w/o mustard, catsup, pickles or onions on a well-toasted sesame seed bun




We'll I thought I wouldn't be able to finish it.  But i did. yeyy!  Kaya pa rin pala ng instenstines ko heheh

Sam could only stare at me (though I think she wanted a bite) ahaha!


[sam: so takaw ever!!!!!!]


bigla kaming napadpad sa conti's serendra one thursday...

ewan ko, ndi masarap yung roastbeef kasi ndi ko naman naubos eh. [sam: sinungaling! muntik ko na ngang hindi makita ang plate!]

[sam: i had grilled pink salmon with paella rice...yum!]

In grief

Last Saturday morning, I brought Dezza with me to buy a bigger aquarium for my tetras and to buy another set of fishes... Bought a 5G aquarium, 2 pcs of glass fish and 4pcs of gold balloon.

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="126" caption="glass fish"][/caption]

Glass fishes are freshwater fishes with transparent bodies. That actually caughts my eye. Hirap hanapin sa aquarium!!!

And there's my gold balloons..

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="118" caption="gold balloon"]gold balloon[/caption]

Not easy to maintain a nice and clean aquarium but Im enjoying every minute of it. Over the weekend, I just stare at my fishes as if there's no tomorrow hahaha... I actually like to see one of the fishes bear a 'child' hahaha... 

Last night, when I came home from my date with Mikoy, I was checking the fishes first before putting 5 new more tetras and found that one of the glass fishes.... waaaahhhh... 'dying!' So I transferred it to the smaller bowl and placed this: RECUPERATING! Pls DO NOT TOUCH! I was there for an hour checking up on him from time to time. But I guess my best wasn't good enough (hehe) My sister told me this morning: "Ate, condolence...time of death - unknown..." Didn't sink in at first because I just woke up you know? They say that "magbiro ka na sa lasing huwag lang sa bagong gising..."

So I texted Mikoy:

me: time of death: unknown; my status: grieving

mikoy: huh?

me: my glass fish died...don't know why? but i think its internal hemmorhage bec i saw something on his head. when i got home last night, i saw that there's a black 'something' on his head so i put him in ICU para maisalba ko siya and so the others will not bully him and for him to recuperate

mikoy:ow sori to hear dat babe... wer is your sister? do u think she is the murderer? call CSI

me: the fishtopsy (aka autopsy) is scheduled this afternoon so i can determine if there is a foul play

mikoy: hmmm, i dont want to think that it was your sister (again) but there's history (pattern) already isn't it?

me: well, my sister is one of the suspects (or ONLY suspect)... when i arrived last night, she was feeling very tired and very sleepy. seems like she did something too draining...

mikoy: beb did you check if ICU has water? probably he got depressed and sad unless there's really a foul play

me: there is water, food and the ICU is big. if i left him there with the others, he's probably dead last night and won't be able to investigate on his case

mikoy: haha pa NBI mo na beb while the evidence is still fresh. paparaffin test at baka linisin ni aling dowee ang crime scene eh magkaroon pa ng obstruction of justice..tsk tsk.. ayokong makitang binibitbit kayo ng mga pulis! sa ngayon ipag pray na lang natin ang yumaong isda. isipin mo na lang kasama na niya ang pamilya niya sa heaven...

me: hahahahahha!!!!


This is how we converse at times...

Susan's got talent

this girl will give Ate Lea a run for her money.

susan boyle

whewww *tagaktak pawis*

Yesterday daw was the hottest day in Manila for this year-- bongang bongang  36.8C.  huwattt??! eto ang normal body temperature, so para ma experience nyo ang ganitong temperatura, ilagay lamang ang mga daliri sa inyong kilikili (tapos amuyin dahil siguradong pawisan ito).

Kaya pala napakainit kagabi.  last night nagising ako ng 1am dahil sa inet.  Wala kasi kaming aircon e ( walang pambili at pambayad sa meralco) kaya hindi ako makatulog.  Hayon naligo tuloy ako dahil di ko na matiis.  nakatulog ako 330 na.

Eto ngayon, nakabili ako ng sekanhan na aircooler.  Sana naman epektib sya at mapatulog nya ko ng mahimbing mamya.

Just a rant....

Told a close friend of mine that whatever you say this person will never or might not listen to you because that's her all-time DREAM.  Nobody, not even their families can't stop them from pursuing their dreams if that rare chance is right infront of them.

This person am referring to is an employee of ours. She was hired late last year. If you are a fresh graduate, you'll have a bond (only in I.T. and one desktop support team) The bond was in the contract and it was made clear from the time she was being interviewed that there is a bond and she said its ok. Although she honestly said that she was applying for the AFP because its her dream to be a soldier. No problem with that. Everybody has a dream of their own. The problem was, she's resigning effective immediately as she will start training a week after this. HR said that okay but you have to pay for your bond since you didn't finish your contract. She said she has a promisory note for that since she cannot produce that amount right away. So she's sort of promising that she will pay (thru her mother I think) even while she's gone for her training.

This friend of mine was asking for an advice. Told her that you're just doing your job and in the first place, it was clearly discussed to her (the bond) before she was hired. The employee didn't expect she will be accepted in AFP. Anyway, asking this staff to pay for her bond doesn't mean that she's being a b**t*h or something that she's trying to control the person's dream. Some people may not understand but as I've said, just do your job and ignore other people's sarcastic remarks.


This morning, I was pissed off with an email that I thought ended yesterday. We are spending so much time for a simple matter. I give some credit to this b*t*h for some arguments but not totally. Why can't she just follow suit? If other teams can, why can't she???  Why can't she just make my life easier? You see its like this, she's trying to point out that what's the point of me being granted an access to this system we are using and make another shared file for all of us to see? I understand. But does she know that it's time-consuming to check everything ONE BY ONE and not per team since I've tried that before and the data I was getting was not consistent? &%@#*!!!!!

I was talking to one of her team mates and he has the same sentiments as mine. But doesn't have any choice and he's just trying to be patient with her to avoid any conflicts. As for me? Well, goodluck that I don't run into her today or else! I am so fuming mad!

O(ooh)cean-filled Part2

Now its my turn to get back at Mikoy hahaha. Kidding, this is my side of the story. So as promised, Mikoy took me to Manila Ocean Park last Sunday. Yey! We were welcomed by the deafening voices of kids at a singing contest. Mikoy was irritated (was not hahaha didn't put much attention to them as I was more excited to come in) ok, ok...it's annoying!

[caption id="attachment_1367" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="ME infront of MOP. pose kung pose hehe!"]ME nfront of MOP. pose kung pose hehe![/caption]

We were told by the guard to get a number from the information booth before proceeding to the cashier... Our number - 598! So while waiting for our turn, we made computations on how much MOP is getting in a day... Adult rate is P400 and P350 for the kids. Compute it to 3 people minimum.

Of course, picture-picture! This lady got conscious when she noticed that were taking pics of her...

This pirarucu is so huuuge! Couldn't imagine myself swimming face to face with this giant fish! One of the largest freshwater fish in the world! Can grow up to 10ft and can weigh as much as 400lbs! OMG! The park has 3 of this specie.

[caption id="attachment_1375" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="here fishy fishy come to big sistah!"]here fishy fishy come to big sistah![/caption]


Could almost touch the fishes but not allowed. The only thing that I got hold on to was the starfish.

So soft, so tender, so yummy! Kidding!

There were moments that I wanted to jump into the aquarium! Promise! Well, I can swim. Para kasing kulang na there's a glass between you and the fishes. Sigh! Mikoy was teasing me because I always, always touch the glasses and like massaging them, talking to them. Well, not really. I was whispering something to them. What? Secret! hahaha!

Fish Spa...so excited and nervous at the same time. I know they'll tickle my cutie feet and they did hehehe. I was scared at first but got used to them after so many 'tili!'

yey feet - clean

After the spa, headed to the 10min boat ride. It was fun! We were with some Koreans.

me: babe, your family is here too?

mikoy: hehe.

Me thinks that Mikoy is half Korean. Mikoy sometimes speaks like Korean. DI KO MAINTINDIHAN! (mikoy: opahhh hehe)  Especially when Mik feels like teasing me, or am getting HB (high blood - mad) already. hahaha!

[caption id="attachment_1381" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Ozeano"]Ozeano[/caption]

We were just looking then Mikoy decided to have early dinner - buffet. In fairness, we didn't eat much. promise. Food's catered by Tamayo's so its good. I just dont like the roast beef cuz it's not tender, was disappointed with the creme brulee and the leche flan. Darn it! hahah!

While eating, was asking Mikoy if the park has a pet shop. If they have, I will drop by and buy a fish. Why not? But unfortunately, they're all in the aquarium hahaha. Sungkitin ko na lang kaya isang ray (pagi) dun sa malapit sa boat ride section. Kaso baka bigla akong hampasin ng buntot or biglang lumabas ung black-tipped shark. Nyay!

We didn't go home yet. Dropped by at the Souvenir shop. Wanted the turtle, pink dolphin and shark but mommy might wonder...  so we just played basketball in Quantum - arcade parallel to the store. As usual, I won again! ehem ehem...
