Life is so short

I was on leave today because we have to attend the funeral of my daddy's sister who passed away last week. Losing someone especially a mother is not easy. Wala na rin kasi ang father ng 2 cousins ko. I was holding back my tears kanina and I was just staying on the sides kasi ayaw kong makita ang mga pinsan at mga ibang tita/tito kong umiiyak. Ni halos ayaw kong tignan ang tita ko kasi it brings back sad memories of daddy and nanay. Kanina naiyak na ako when I saw my male cousin na humagulgol, ilang araw na rin kasing pinipigil eh. Hindi na kasi niya naabutang buhay si tita. He was working then when my other cousin called. Hindi nga sinabi kung bakit basta emergency lang sa bahay. Iyak siya ng iyak talaga kanina. Nasa likod lang ako ng kapatid kong lalaki. Nakakalungkot kasi 2 na lang sila, actually maiiwan pa yung lalaki dito dahil yung kapatid niya sa Taiwan na nakatira with her husband.


Mahirap tanggapin iyon at masakit lalo na kapag umuwi ka sa bahay niyo wala ka ng dadatnan, wala ka na ring pagpapaalaman kapag aalis ka. Sa totoo lang, it made me appreciate and love mommy, tatay (lolo) and my family nung nawala si daddy at nanay. Close ang family namin kahit na minsan may problema rin. Noong nawala ang daddy ko ilang araw ko pa bago natanggap, ni hindi ao makaiyak kasi nga hindi ko pa tanggap noon. Kahit na matagal ng wala silang 2 sa amin, kapag may nakapagpa-trigger for me to remember them nalulungkot pa din ako pero they're always in my prayers naman.


Hindi mo talaga alam kung kailan ka mawawala ano? Malay mo ako, bukas makalawa mawala na rin. You'll never know. Basta ang sabi ko sa kanila gusto ko din i-cremate din ako just like daddy and nanay. Ayaw kong maiwan sa cemetery dahil paano kapag matanda na yung mga mahal ko sa buhay hindi na nila ako madadalaw tsaka ayaw ko iyong tipong tatapak-tapakan lang ako dun or kapag malakas ang ulan, babahain ang lugar ko. Tsaka takot ako baka may multo. Hahaha. Gusto ko maganda ang suot ko, maraming bulaklak, at yung kanta ayaw ko ng sobrang malungkot. Slow music din siyempre pero ayaw ko ng tagalog at yung mga usual na tinutugtog sa funerals like Hindi Kita Malilimutan and the like. So passe. Kung puwede nga lang Pretty Woman or The Way you Look Tonight eh hehehe.


Sigh. That's life.

WWF

Yes I am proud to say that Mikoy and I are members of this organization. Just recently, when we were at the mall, we passed by their booth. The lady at first hesitated so we just ignored her. When we're on our way to the parking lot, we saw her againm, but this time we accommodated her :)





WWF-Philippines, also known as Kabang Kalikasan ng Pilipinas (KKP) , has been working as a national organization of the WWF network since 1997. The organization's conservation program places strong marine emphasis in the conservation of species and habitats and utilizes highly integrative and participatory approaches to find solutions that work for the environment and for the people that live in and depend on it.

For only P500/month, you'll be able to help them with their works :) It was a good feeling really. Why don't you try.

7-11 tragedy ;)

Yesterday, di kami nagkita ni Mikoy dahil umuulan nga at di ko na pinag commute dahil mahihirapan ding umuwi so sabi ko wag na kami magkita. Maaga ako umuwi, sabi ko nga sa sarili ko swerte dahil madali akong nakasakay ng train at mejo maluwag though di ako nakaupo keri na rin. Mejo di ko na lang pinansin ung magasawa na may kausap na 2 lalaki saying na 'we will pray for you blah blah at thank God dahil makakalis na kayo finally...' ok. i actually find the couple so nice and I think they're true naman with what they're saying kaya lang parang may aftershock pa ako siguro ng usapan namin ni 'father abraham' aka code name for AG. code namin ng mga girls sa kanya. Pinaguusapan kasi naman yung mga 'witches-bitches' sa office sabi ko sa kanya na minsan kung sino pa yung sobrang religious sila pa masasama ugali. Don't get me wrong here, kaya lang based on experience ganun talaga, sila pa yung puro mga pakabig, selfish, no innate kindness that I have discussed previously, hindi makatao etc. Nakakapuno lalo na kapag ikaw alam mong at naniniwala kang nasa tama ka pero iba pa magiging dating sa ibang tao...


Anyway, going back to my 7-11 experience, ayun nga pagbaba ko ng LRT, so mejo baha sa baba so I have to drop by 7-11 to buy good ramen since I'm craviing for one. Need ko dumaan sa plank of wood na ni-provide nila dun so mejo parang two way siya. Dami tao kaya madalian lang talaga. Papasok na ako ng 7-11 pero may lalabas na lalaki eh he blocked my way no, actually binukas niya yung pinto so bigla kong hinawakan door dahil hahampas sa mukha ko. There's no way for me to turn dahil nakaharang mga tao. Kung hindi ko hinawakan at hinarangan ung lalabasan niyang pinto malamang may bangas mukha ko ngayon. Eto ang kinainis ko. Pagkalagpas niya sa akin nagsalita ba naman na 'alam naman kasing lalabas ako...' Nagpanting tenga ko. Sabi ko 'gago ka pala eh para paglabas lang ng convenience store big deal sa iyo?! Eh muntik mo na ngang mahampas mukha ko gago!' Hinihintay kong sumagot pa ulit at papaluin ko ng dala kong payong kaso tuloy-tuloy na umalis so pumasok na ko.


While looking for the ramen, nanginginig pa din ako sa galit at sumakit dibdib ko! Gusto ko talaga saktan yung praning na yun! Kaya pagdating ko dito sa bahay init talaga ng ulo ko, sinabi ko kay mommy kasi kung di ko sinabi baka magtuloy-tuloy ang palpitations ko eh.


Ayun lang. hehe. Moral lesson? Laging magdala ng payong at baka mapasma ka. At para may pambambo ka sa mga hinayupak at antipatikong lalaking makakasalubong mo. hehe.

HP6



Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is the penultimate of the seven novels from British author J. K. Rowling's popular Harry Potter series. Set during Harry Potter's sixth year at Hogwarts, the novel explores Lord Voldemort's past, and Harry's preparations for the final battle amidst emerging romantic relationships and the emotional confusions and conflict resolutions characteristic of mid-adolescence.



I'll see you soon Harry :)

BOF

I've been watching BOYS OVER FLOWERS lately. My brother gave me the complete dvd series  :) Mikoy is jealous dahil mas inuuna ko pa daw ito kaysa sa kanya. Sabi ko naman pagbigyan na niya ako dahil minsan lang naman ako magkagusto sa mga Koreanovelas. BOF is a Korean drama adaptation of the Japanese manga Hana Yori Dango.



I love Geum Jan Di and Gu Jun Pyo's love-hate relationship. Soo cute! hehe. So high shoolish but they're cute. Pampaalis ng stress ko. They made me laugh, cry and love even more :)

SIGH

It's been awhile since my last post. Been busy in the office. Dami problema.


Neighbor resigned already :( We had our despe for her last Friday that's wny late na ako nakauwi. Lilipat siya somewhere in Makati lang naman pero syempre iba pa rin iyung araw-araw mo makikita di ba? Katabi ko lang ng cube yun. Wala na akong pagsasabihan ng chismax, wala ng kukuha ng tissue, wala na akong tutulungang maglinis ng cube, wala ng magpapasama sa 4F at 5F para magdeliver ng tinda niya at maningil, mababawasan na ang LT mates at BF mates, wala na akong kahati sa salad at tofu, mababawasan ang pintasera... huhuhu...


But...everyday naman namin siya kausap, sa email. Wala pa daw siyang ginagawa dahil puro basa pa lang daw (na one of her fave things to do..not) We'll have dinner with her on Fri at Serendra. Then Saturday magkakasama ulit kami sa Bulacan, sa binyag ng anak ng dati naming officemate.


Dinadaan na lang namin sa kwentuhan ang mga problema namin sa office. Ano?


Basta ang sabi ko sa kanila habaan pa nila ang patience nila or kami. Meron lang talagang tao na hindi innate ang kindness. Hindi makatao, walang konsiderasyon, selfish. Meron ding politika sa opisina, huwag ka ng lumabas. Its quite frustrating and sad at the same time cuz may umalis na naman sa amin, isa sa mga malaipit na kaibigan ko because merong mga tao na hindi marunong makinig or umintindi. I believe na sometimes its not about the salary or the company, its the people they're working with.


Right now, we don't wanna dwell on things that make us sad or disappointed although its hard but we're trying. Now, I am starting to look for a "fallback" because SG and I have been discussing things. If worse comes to worst.... I don't want to be that confident, complacent on our situation. I am scared mind you. Starting to sink in....


Hayy... hopefully things will be better soon.

right of suff(e)rage

I may finally exercise my right of suff(e)r-age in next year's election.  yes, i haven't voted ever since, and it's because i felt that i haven't found the right candidate deserving of my vote.  but next year, here i come hehhe.

my candidate is none other than Bayani "Hitler" Fernando for president, or any national office!  I know that it's a long shot, but he's the only one at present who can make me go to the presinto and  vote.  i feel that he is the best candidate we have right now.

of course lots of people are against him.  and that is because he wants this nation to be great again by instilling discipline.  sino ba naman ang gusto ng sinasaway? ayan tuloy marami syang kaaway!

we are a young nation.  at tulad ng mga bata pa tayo, naging strict ang mga magulang natin sa atin, sila ang batas, dahil gusto nilang lumaki tayo ng maayos.  for a young nation like us, democracy would just not work.  kailangan muna tayong hubugin ng disiplina. imagine 9o millions filipinos gusto bawat isa ang masusunod?  we need a hitler!  we need a hero! we need bayani! heheheh

did u know?

that the founders of adidas and puma are brothers?

Unahan ng sindak

Last Friday, Mikoy and I were on our way to Loyola Chapel in EDSA but unfortunately nagaway lang kami so di na kami tumuloy. Will not discuss the away thing but kung bakit ganyan ang title ng post na ito.


Nahuli kami at napahinto ng pulis para mag-explain. Pero pinalagpas ata kami dahil hindi na nakapagsalita sa akin dahil tuloy-tuloy akong magsalita. Hahaha! Sabi ni Mikoy baka nabwiset sa akin dahil hindi makasingit. Aba eh sa talaga namang hindi kami guilty na dumaan kami sa bawal dahil when we were asking one of the stupid aid aka pulis pulisan na may sash na neon green eh sabi dumiretso daw kami tas pag tinanong kami sabihin daw namin eh may binaba lang kami sa kanto. So dumiretso kami.


So pinahinto nga kami dahil bawal nga. So nung tinanong ako ni mr policeman.


police: ma'm bawal po dito san ho ba kayo papunta at san kayo galing?


me: eh kasi ho ganito yun, blah blah blah blah.......blah blah blah....


police: sige ho ma'm ok na diretsuhin niyo na lang yan.


me: thank you po.


ayun lang. so ganun lang ang tactic ha? unahan niyo na lang ng sindak at samahan niyo ng konting charm ;)

Love can wait

I was told by this 'love can wait' by our family friend eons ago. Actually,the father of my ex bf. I was 20+ yrs old then. Last Sunday, one of our former neighbor told me 'parang napagiiwanan ka na ah' I just smiled at him. I have a lovelife naman. I have my Mikoy.


I dreamt of having my own family but I guess not meant OR that person that 'they' wanted has not yet arrived. Love is always right there. You don't have to look for it, it will just come, at the right time. I believe in that. But the thing is, you don't choose who to love, love chooses you. So when it comes to you, just embrace it and return the favor of loving that person who was given to you.


I have experienced love in so many ways, felt the pains, the joys, and all that comes in it but didn't have regrets cuz after all those experiences, I became stronger, more loving.


I believed that I have matured when it comes to love. I already understood some things that I have done in the past and what I have been doing in the present because of my past loves and experiences.


Love is not always easy to understand. It is in fact complicated. But what's important is that we don't get tired looking for love, loving love.

pinoy OA-ness

Below are samples ng Pinoy OA-ness:

a (h1n1) - sen joker  said DOH should stop advertising this disease.  Ayos sa count, daig pa ang  Olympic scoreboard sa pag update.  Ang kumikita lan naman dito ay ang nagbebenta ng alcohol at vit C e.  eto kasing si duque, pina hype ng husto, tapos ng nagpapanic na ang tao, biglang kumambyo.  hayyy. tapos sa airport may mga thermal scanner pa, pati sa mga schools at ibang establishments. parang bina bar code na lang ang mga tao. kelan pa bawal magka lagnat?



(sa Europe airport may sign lang na if you have flu-like symptoms, pls go to the nearest doctor, so pilipins kasi parang kriminal na kulang na lang i posas e.)

LRT - hiwalay boy/girls -  talagang sisitahin ang mga lalaking naliligaw ng coach, pero yung mga kumakain at nagkakalat, deadma lang sa guards.

SM guards with the amazing bomb detector patpat - baket wala pang ng papa-patent dito?!?!  San ka nakakita ng magic patpat na itapat lang sa bag ay malalaman na kung may bomba o wala?  kahit si harry potter wala non heheh.  genius ang pinoy!

Free hipo! - yung tipong hahawakan ka sa baywang o tyan, masabi lang na nakapkapan ka bago pumasok ng mall.  sinusukat na kaya nila ang waistline ko non?

driving without helmet - basta wala kang helmet, siguradong huli ka!  pero lahat ng iba pang violations deadma lang. ang gagaling nyo!

walana ko maisip.  balik na ko sa resto heheh

my new resto

I haven't been posting lately coz I'm busy with my new resto.  I'm just starting so there's still lots of kinks that need to be ironed out.  Well I hope to get a bigger place soon, and more customers, and more dollares too!



ang liit ng pic! niwey hope you can visit soon!

water with gas

I just remembered having tasted this in France. Our host said that while staying in Vienna, he came to like this carbonated water mixed with apple or orange juice. It gives the juice 'spirit' o 'guhit sa lalamunan'.



PapaJo said the first time he bought bottled water, he bought the carbonated ones. He ended up giving these away, as he wasn't used to drinking this.

So when in Europe and when ordering for H20, be specific if you want water with or without gas. Else it's yekkkkk.
