Rainy Days (Even It’s Not Monday)

I never had a deep sleep since I can recall when was the last one. I just had one tonight. It felt short but I feel well-rested. I snoozed my alrm on my mobile phone a couple of times stealing a few more minutes to cuddle in my sofa bed, hugging my cool pillow.

It was raining since last night. Wow.

Today should be our last day of work for the week. Yesterday afternoon, we purchased our bus ticket for our team’s vacation after 5 years of work. Tonight we leave and have our deserved break.

Well, rain or shine we will push through with the trip. I’ve packed my stuff last night and like in any otherout of town trip I had, I always go for 2 luggages: 1 for my clothes and 1 for my gadgets: Biggie my mighty Powerbook, my Canon G5 and other stuff that I think I might need.

Still raining outside. I have a few errands to make before I go to work then from there we head off straight to the bus station.

This is it. Yeah!

Rain never stops. Hope that won’t stop us from our long-awaited vacation. It WON’T stop us. There’s a big chance that the weather here in Manila is the same as to where we are heading. May it be just hanging out in our rooms, watch downloaded TV series till my head ached and my eyes popped out or just sleep the whole day till my back hurts, I’m still up for it. Even if it will be that way, I’m just glad we are NOT in Manila for a few days.

See you in a few days… when I get back online 😉

Tagalog Naman Tayo…

Lunes na naman bukas. Ibig sabihin luluwas na naman ako ng Manila. Pag luluwas ako, ibig sabihin nu’n maaga na naman kasi tanghaliin ka lang ng konti o abutan ng rush hour – patay! Pahirapan sa pagsakay. Para kang sardinas sa latang di pa nabubuksan. 

Alam ko na naman ang scenario kada Lunes. Kaya madalas Linggo palang ng hapon on gabi lumuluwas na ako. Hindi naman ‘yung ang reklamo ko.

Luluwas ako kasi magtatrabaho na naman ulit.

Hindi naman sa ayaw ko ‘yung trabaho ko. Well, ako ayos naman. Hindi nga lang pa rin maintindihan ng karamihan ‘yung ginagawa ko. Para kasi sa “karamihan” pag nagtatrabaho ka dapat 8am-5pm, nakaapustura at yumayaman. 9am to 6pm naman kami kaso minsan extended pati weekends, no OT pay. Dati ok lang sa akin, ngayon…. Hmmm… sabihin na lang natin na pagod na ako at sawa na sa pagiging mabait… or rather, tawag ng “karamihan” sa amin – TANGA.

Simple lang naman e. Gusto ko ‘yung ginagawa ko. Well, basta naman gusto mo madaling simulan, gawin o ituloy.

Basta kung gusto mo.

Kaso lately, nakakawala ng gana. Sawa na ba ako? I don’t think so naman. Sabi baka daw kasi parang pagkain ‘yung scenario, puro pansit bihon na lang. What if mag-miki naman daw ako o canton. Hellow?!? Pansit pa rin! Ewan!

After 3 (official) years, makakapagbakasyon na ang grupo. Kung tutuusin, 5 taon na pala mula ng sinimulan ng boss mula pa nung soloista pa s’ya. Masasara ang tindahan ng 2 araw, pero 4 na araw kaming mapapahinga dahil pati Sabado at Linggo magkakasama kami.



Walang trabaho.


Sana naman nga. Bakasyon kami. WALANG MANG-IISTORBO. UTANG NA LOOB.

Excited ako usually kapag ganitong out of town, lalo pa kung grupo at talagang bibiyahe at bagong lugar pupuntahan ko. Pero sa totoo lang, hindi ako excited. Kasi kapag nangyari na naman ang naiisip ko, tama na naman ako s’yempre. Pero BAKA magwala na ako this time. So may God, mapa-kung anumang relihiyon ‘yun, forbid na mag-flare up ako at masagad-sagad na.

May sumira na kasi ng birthday celebration ko dati. Napatawad ko na ba? Ewan ko. Pero kung sa pagkalimot, obviously, hindi ko makali-kalimutan. Elephant ako e: may forgive but will never forget. Sa’n kaya nagsimula ‘yung quote na ‘yun? Swak na swak e.

‘Yun lang. Nakakatamad. Hihilahin ko na naman ang sarili ko sa pagbangon bukas ng umaga.


Pero sabi nga nila, pessimistic attitude ko strikes again…




Alam ko po na hindi naman ako perpektong tao. May ino-okray din ako kahit ‘di naman ako kagandahan. Nagmumura at malamang makakapatay din ng tao (sooner or later). Kung may mag ibang tao ayaw magkamali, parang this time I pray na sana mali ang inaasahan kong magyayari sa bakasyon naming darating. Sana mag-enjoy naman kami at walang mang-istorbo. Respeto po ang hiling namin. Na hindi naman naibibigay sa araw-araw na humihinga po kami. Pero kahit po sa “bakasyon” namin meron. Kasi ibig pong sabihin may pag-asa pa ‘di ba? *kindat*

Sana po ipagkaloob n’yo itong munting kahilingan ko. Mas madali po ito ah, kesa sa mga dating kong dasal na sana ma-in love sa akin si *toot* o magka-BF na ako. ‘Di lang naman po ako ang masisiyahan kundi pati ang mga kagrupo ko at mga inaanak at pamilya ng boss-friend ko. Kahit po alam kong pag-uwi namin at pagbabalik sa Manila, ratratan na naman po at balik sa realidad.

‘Yun lang po. Marami pong salamat, Lord.

My Love of Siam

I just finished watching this movie…

It’s English translated title is Love of Siam. It’s a Thai movie. I learned it from Gian, my friend who’s assigned to work in Bangkok, Thailand.

I have been watching this movie since last week… watching it almost every night… over and over again…

And still cry again and again…

There’s some urge in me to hear it’s songs too. I searched over and was luck enough to find some and marked it as one of my favorites.

You might see that it looked like an ordinary teen romance movie but wait till you see one fan tribute to the movie. Check out the link by clicking here. It tackles more than what close-minded critics just see it.

Personally, I guess Thailand has some special place in my heart. And seeing this Thai movie, plus another form of unrequited love did the “magic” of pressing my fragile spot.

At least there’s one thing I can relate to all these that’s happening to me these past few days. 

The only definite thing.

A word that probably can describe me right now.

Blank to recount my mind. I don’t know what write or how to write it. The past days I have certain thoughts but somehow I am restraining to release it… or just really don’t know how to put it in words.

I am no writer.

Blank to describe how I feel. I don’t want to get up and open my eyes. Just want to sleep or let the days past.

Woke up early today and just rolled over the bed a couple of times forcing myself to doze off again. But I have to get up.


Times you don’t care, you wouldn’t care and you feel no one cares. I guess that’s was it. When you reach the limit. That limit of unexplainable? I wouldn’t care. I guess…

I’m a Good-natured Realist! What about you?

I got this “test” from Apple‘s blog. Took it and it’s true! Described me well Ü Read on and hopefully you’d take the test yourself 😉 …


Good-natured Realists are warm-hearted, helpful personalities. They do their work conscientiously and have a pronounced organising talent. They often feel they are committed to traditional values. The family in particular is extremely important to Good-natured Realists. Their greatest pleasure is making themselves useful and taking care of other people. But they do not like pushing themselves to the fore; they prefer to fulfill their tasks out of the limelight. Good-natured Realists are real workaholics; they are very reliable and nothing is too much for them when it is a question of completing a project. Thoroughness, conscientiousness and sense of duty are their strongest points. They prefer established and familiar situations to new and unknown situations.

In dealing with others, Good-natured Realists are considerate and obliging; they are always happy to put aside their own requirements in the interest of their family and friends. Their home is mostly very well cared-for, cosy and tidy. Their perfectionism on the one hand and their aversion to delegating tasks on the other hand often lead to them taking on too much both professionally and privately. They cannot stand discord; conflicts make them very unhappy. One could almost describe them as being harmony-addicted – and this sometimes leads them to strongly neglecting themselves and their own wishes because they are unable to bring themselves to put up a fight.

Good-natured Realists dream of a stable and trusting relationship for life. Marriage and family are very important to them. They take care of their partner attentively and lovingly and put up with a lot for a harmonious relationship. They are also loyal and reliable friends. However, they can be very hurt if their interpersonal commitment is taken for granted for too long.


Adjectives which describe your type

introverted, practical, emotional, planning, tradition-conscious, good-natured, self-sacrificing, caring, devoted, friendly, loyal, considerate, reliable, conscientious, loving, quiet, reserved, modest, helpful, objective, hard-working, warm-hearted, communicative, painstaking, altruistic

These subjects could interest you

Back to Reality

A week has past from the trip and the “fever” that I acquired from it.

Posted my photos in Multiply and as days passed it seemed hard for me to sort out the photos and files for personal archiving and for re-posting to those other social websites.

Other projects wanted to outdo the other. As if fighting to get my attention, well, my priority actually… from re-doing a box diecut, re-sizing a countertop display and digging up archived file for a quite old project just to name a few 😐

The Bangkok video greeting setup for the client seemed to be working since I don’t receive any emails, IMs or SMS from Gian on inquiries or problems on it. That’s a good sign Ü But I remind myself on each day that ends, videos to animate accumulates :-S

No word from Ten and I feel a bit sad that Put didn’t reply in my messages through SMS and MSN 😦

A sign that everyone’s busy. Everyone’s back on their individual lives.


I have a couple to things in mind to blog. Both has something to do with Bangkok and my trip there. And some, well, quite personal. But I sort of lost the interest of writing them. I don’t know. Lately, I just feel being slowed down and held back.

I Almost Missed This One…

Repeating a post of this strip because…

I dedicate this comic strip to my dear friend Gian and (again) to my kumpareng Myles… as the Charlie Brown(s).

May your Lucy(s) be happy in making you miserable or hurting you, BUT may their conscience bombard them one way or another.

As another person said… “Ang karma ngayon, FedEx na. Door to door delivery, may next day service pa!” Well, the Lucy(s) karma might not be bestowed upon tomorrow on them but surely it will come.

And as I remind you and myself as well…

Blessed are they who suffer persecution for justice sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Remind yourself you are the Charlie Browns and who are the Lucys:

Charlie Brown is the lead star of the Peanuts comic strip. And in every movie, strip or story, if there’s a lead there’s the villain, kontrabida or simply put, those who wanted the spotlight to be theirs. They are the pa-cute, papansin, the pathetic, the frustrated lead star.

Imagine, you are the Charlie Brown, lead role bestowed on you because of your character and the Lucys, well, will always be the same as they are created to highlight more of your character 😉

Go, Charlie Browns!!!

That’s life… in a comic strip 😉
