Nov 15... ngayon lang napost

Tinatamad talaga ko mag-blog lately kaya ayan... ngayon ko lang mapopost to...
Rhea, Arlo, Edgar and I went out nung Nov. 15. Dinner lang and coffee. While waiting for Rhea and Arlo, nagpasama ako magshop for office wear and shoes kay Edgar and ang gaganda ng mga nabili ko! Mura pa! Ok pala mamili sa Market! Market! =)
When the 2nd half of the group arrived, we went to Reyes Barbecue for dinner... We all had pork barbecue except for Arlo, he had bangus belly. Sarap pala ng barbecue don! And the peanut sauce is just so good! Chikahan lang over dinner...
Then, I realized ang tagal na namin hindi nagkikita. Gosh! I missed them so much! I don't join them sa gimmicks for the past months eh. Tapos yung birthday ni Arlo last Sept., di rin ako nakasama, swimming pa naman yon... anyhow... There's a lot of kwentos I missed so update-an lang ng update-an ng mga nangyayari sa kanila. Rhea and Steve (dinedate nya) are not dating anymore, Arlo found a new girl na may boyfriend, and Edgar is still busy preparing for his April Wedding. =)
Here are some pics...

Manyakan sa Starbucks... Eeewww...

Nov. 18

2nd day of rest, 2 days ng absent. Been suffering from cough and colds since Nov. 16 (Chris Brown/Rihanna Concert), and I'm not enjoying it anymore. Was just surprised of getting an unexpected phone call from "someone" asking how I was doing. The second thing to do was text Angel and ask if she mentioned (to him) anything about me being sick, Angel said no. So there... Hehe... (YA, alam nyo na ang tawang yan :D)
While lying on my bed at hirap na hirap sa pagubo... nagtext si Achie...
Napahinto ang pag-ubo ko at na-flatter. Obvious bang tinake ko as compliment ang text message ni Achie, I even took a pic of the message... hahaha...

Nov 19

I just had a phone call from a friend of mine... Was so surprised coz I thought nakalimutan nya na ko. Eto pa, I thought din na he just learned from my bestfriend na I'm sick that's why he called... Not pala. He just... C.A.L.L.E.D period... and I'm happy! :) Ayun, so bale no, feeling nya daw nasestress na ko kaya ako nagkakasakit so I need a vacation daw at niyaya nya ko sa beach at magbabakasyon daw kami sa December! I asked "December?!" weird di ba? Gawin bang Summer ang Disyembre?! Pero sabi nya, it would be the Perfect Summer in December! We'll go to a place where "Samba songs are made of, where I won't burn in the sun but I'll turn golden brown... Where I can eat peanut butter sandwiches... Walang trabaho, walang stress na iisipin... bakasyon lang". Haaayyy...

Chris Brown and Rihanna Concert

Right... I was one of the 70,000 people who went to Global City Open Field to watch (and see) Chris Brown and Rihanna perform. I had a very fun, fun night with the girls (Angel, Ann, Sugar and Beegee) although I was already suffering from cough and colds. Before going to the venue, we had our sumptuous dinner first at North Park.
Cough and colds didn't matter to me because I sooo enjoyed watching Chris Brown! He is sooo haaawwwwtttt! I swear! Nice arms! Nice abs! Nice body! Sugar and I were really shouting our hearts out (deadma sa ubo) hearing Chris Brown perform our favorite songs--Forever, With You, No Air, and Rock with You (I can't believe he sang this! Oh gosh)!
Here are some pics...
Parang tinangay lang ng bagyo ang dinner namin...
Besties... Halata bang matamlay na ko?
The best we could get of Chris Brown (courtesy of Bes)
Post-Chris Brown smiles... haaayyy...
The best we could get of Rihanna (again, courtesy of Bes)
Happy souls after the concert... Darn I feel so ill that time... Smile pa rin =)

Kamustahin natin...

Ang diet at fat loss pills ko... Kung ang ihahain naman sa kin e yung creamy shrimp ng Le Cuisine Francais from the weekend market. Isa na namang pagi-indulge. Pakbet talaga di ko mapigilan di bumili nitong shrimp na to... Favorite ko na to since nakilala ko sya sa Salcedo. Hehe... Sakto lang yung pagkaluto sa shrimp, olives and mushrooms... and the cream, super sarap grabe! I just wish I can cook this dish para naman anytime na mag-crave ako for this, e lulutuin ko na lang. You guys should try this. I swear! It's only available at the Salcedo Weekend Market. Mejo nagtaas na sya ng price ngayon, from P270, P300 na sya but, mas maraming serving ngayon plus may kasama na syang rice when you buy it. :-)

Toffee Nut Latte

Why did I forget to blog this last Thursday?! Anyway, Christmas is fast approaching and Starbucks has their annual treat for their customers--Christmas Drinks. I've been an "avid drinker" of Toffee Nut Latte ever since it was introduced. During the holiday season, I never failed to have cups of this uber sarap coffee. Since I "fell in love" with the drink, I asked my friend (Starbucks barista) to teach me how to make Toffee Nut Latte... I never tried making it myself though... hehehe... Anyhow, it was sweldo time and I was too stressed for words so I decided to have my 1st cup (for this year) of my favorite. Ayun, off to Starbucks (which is just at the ground floor of our building) and syempre... "Toffee Nut Latte grande, and Peppermint brownie". Talk about indulging... Aaahhh... Sssaaarrraaapp!!! :-D

After receiving a text message from bes about this song, I immediately used my connections sa office to help me get an MP3 of this... Unfortunately, my connections didn't find any. I was sooo curious about this song already so I scoured the net for the lyrics... Here goes...
I don't have nerves of steel
I have a heart that feels
I may have cried a million
Tears but I wont drown
I let myself unfold
Gave you my hand to hold
You took me beyond where I could see
And then you let go of me
I was damaged by the fall
Got the wind knocked out of me
To be standing here at all
I must be invincible
I thought that I would break
But now I have come to see
Something strong and beautiful
Inside of meI must be invincible
I don't have X-rays eyes
Don't have a heart so wise
How could I have known
You'd let me down
If I had known that then
My eyes were wide open
I still believe I would've risked it
There's no way i would've missed it
I was damaged by the fall
Got the wind knocked out of me
To be standing here at all
I must be invincible
I thought that I would break
But now I have come to see
Something strong and beautiful
Inside of meI must be invincible
Hey yeah yeah... it's a blessing and a curse
But you find out just
What you're worth.
I was damaged by the fall
Got the wind knocked out of me
To be standing here at all
I must be invincible
I thought that I would break
But now I have come to see
Something strong and beautiful
Inside of me(I must be invincible x8)

Hahaha... (received from Harry via email)

My flight was being served by an obviously gay flight attendant, who seemed
to put everyone in a good mood as he served us food and drinks.
As the
plane prepared to descend, he came swishing down the aisle and told us "Captain
Marvey has asked me to announce that he'll be landing the big scary plane
shortly, so lovely people, if you could just put your trays up, that would be
On his trip back up the aisle, he noticed an extremely well-dressed and exotic young woman hadn't moved a muscle. "Perhaps you didn't
hear me over those big brute engines but I asked you to raise your trazy-poo, so
the main man can pitty-pat us on the ground."
She calmly turned her head and
said, "In my country, I am called a Princess and I take orders from no
To which the flight attendant replied, without missing a beat,
"Well, sweet-cheeks, in my country I'm called a Queen, so I outrank you. Tray
up, Bitch."

Santorini in La Union?!

Akalain mo, meron palang mala-Santorini ditis sa Pinas?! It's actually in Poro Point, La Union. An hour away from Baguio. It's Thunderbird Resorts. Maharlika nga lang ang packages but I really want to go there! Gusto ko ma-feel ang maging KC Concepcion as Sophia in For the First Time. I know it was not a good movie but I really, really fell in love with the Mediterranean setting... Greece ba naman. I got one photo from the website and pasted here sa blog to show you guys how nice the place is sa facade pa lang... =) Click the link to see more of Thunderbird Resorts.

Stop Comparing (copied from my office email)

by Bo Sanchez

We live in a pathologically dissatisfied world. And I'm going to tell you why. Because we love to
compare. Go around the world and discover that people aren't happy with their bodies. Filipinos want to be fair-complexioned like Westerners, and so buy bleaching stuff. Westerners want to own bronzed bodies like ours, and so purchase tanning lotions. Those with moles have them removed, while those who don't strategically implant beauty spots. Some people want to shed a few pounds to look like Ally McBeal, while others want to gain some baby fat to look like Drew Barrymore.
When are we ever going to stop and simply be happy with how we look? We live in a sick world. I tell you. And that sickness is comparisonitis.
Take a look at wealth. When we drive our old Toyota , it really suits us fine. We feel blessed in fact when the rain pours outside and we feel snug and cozy on its faded upholstered seats. But the moment we see our own officemate (or neighbor, or buddy, or cousin, or brother) drive his sleek sky-blue, four-door, four-wheel-drive Rav4, we automatically feel like third class children of God. Next time we drive our bumpy, noisy, rusted, dilapidated Toyota (notice how all the defects come out all of a sudden?), we feel deprived, dispossessed, pariah, debased, and only a little higher than the insects of the earth.
Listen carefully... Bill Gates' total assets are worth $60 billion. That's more than the GNP of some small countries. Tiger Woods earns $80 million simply by smiling on TV in a Nike shirt. And the stars of the sitcom Friends are paid $50,000 per episode! My point? No matter how hard you work, there'll still be some people who will be richer than you are. And there'll be some people who will be more beautiful, have more sex appeal, have more boyfriends / girlfriends, and have more problems. Try it for once. Stop looking around.
> Don't compare! Don't compare her nose with your nose.
> Don't compare his wife with your wife.
> Don't compare his salary with your salary.
> Don't compare her breast size with your breast size.
> Don't compare her kid's report card with your kid's report card.

> Don't compare his prayer group with your prayer group. Don't compare her/his cellulite deposits with your cellulite deposits.
For crying out loud, stop comparing and start living. And you'll be happier with your life, I guarantee. This is crucial: The most difficult thing in the world is to be who you are not. Pretending and trying to be someone else is the official pastime of the human race. (I don't think dogs and cats and cows and horses have this problem.) And the easiest thing in the world is to be yourself.
Be happy. Live!
There must be a reason why God made you tall or short or fat or thin or bumpy all over.
Love who you are!

I've been looking for this chocolate ever since I graduated from College. Why? Coz this is my favorite since the day I tasted it (elementary days) and supermarkets here in Manila don't sell it anymore... For reasons I don't know. Ang sarap sarap pa naman... Now, we can only buy Twix from Subic and I'm uber swerte 'coz one of the team leads here in the office went there and this was her pasalubong for me!!! Yey!!! I ate the chocolate with so much gusto!!! Talaga nga naman... For safety reasons, I checked the packaging first. Mahirap na mabiktima ng Melamine... hehehe... Safe naman sya kainin coz it's an original--as in from US pa sya. It was the same Twix I was eating during my school days... The chocolate coated cookie with caramel inside. It's like KitKat only it's more masarap.
Syempre, kailangan i-post ko to sa blog. Sayang nga lang coz I wasn't able to take a picture of myself while eating this. Sya na lang yung kinunan ko ng pic... hehehe... Obvious bang sobrang like ko ang chocolate na to?! =D


I-memorize ko daw sabi ni Geena (badaf officemate sa Teletech) before the concert sa Sunday... haha...
Rihanna (featuring: Justin Timberlake, Timbaland)
[Verse 1:]
Baby, baby
When we first met
I never felt something so strong
You were like my lover
And my best friend
All wrapped into one
With a ribbon on it
And all of a sudden
When you left
I didn't know how to follow
It's like a shot
That spun me around
And now my heart left
I feel so empty and hollow
[Pre Chorus:]
And I'll never give myself to another
The way I gave it to you
Don't even recognize
The ways you hit me
Do you?
It's gonna take a miracle to bring me back
And you're the one to blame
And now I feel like, oh
You're the reason
Why I'm thinking
I don't wanna smoke all
These cigarettes no more
I guess this is what I get
For wishful thinking
Should've never let you into my door
Next time you wanna go on and leave
I should just let you go on and do it
It's not usual like how I'll leave
It's like I checked into rehab
Baby you're my disease
It's like I checked into rehab
Baby you're my diseaseI gotta check into rehab
'Cause baby you're my disease
I gotta check into rehab
'Cause baby you're my disease
[Verse 2:]
Damn,Ain't it crazy
When your love slams?
You'll do anything
For the one you love
'Cause anytime
That you needed me
I'd be there
It's like
You were my favorite drug
The only problem is
That you was using me
In a different way
That I was using you
But now that I know
That it's not meant to be
You gotta go
I gotta win myself over you
[Pre Chorus:]
[Ad libs]

5 Days to Chris Brown/Rihanna Concert

Hindi ako masyado excited... Hindi palaaa... ;) ;) ;)

Madilim na Alas Tres

Kamusta naman 3:30PM pa lang, parang 6PM na... Sobrang dilim! Grabe... kakainis! Buti na lang meron akong dalang umbrella at mukhang malakas lakas ang ulan na parating. Kung di pa ko tinext ni Angel na madilim, di ko malalaman. And, tiningnan ko sa window kung madilim nga... aba e parang gabi na! I took a picture of the view outside pa talaga from my window. Lungkot... Ayoko talaga ng paulan kasi super gloomy ng paligid... nasasad ako... Haaayyy...

Rap & Gab

It was Rap and Gab's (CMG Supervisor's twins) 3rd birthday last Saturday, Nov. 8 in Jollibee, Alabang. I attended the party with one of the CSRs and Team Lead. Half day naman ako nung Saturday so gora na don. Saya ng party, mas maraming matanda kesa bata. Hehehe... meron nga kong nakitang cutie don, di ko naman matanong si Sha kung sino kasi nahihiya ako. Hehe. Pero feeling ko, kuya sya nung batang invited sa party. Anywayz... Narealize ko na ang tagal ko na pala di nakakapunta ng Alabang area kasi nun ko lang na-learn na may Jollibee na pala don sa may Madrigal, e vacant lot lang yon noon. Nice yung Jollibee don ha, in fairness... May mga couch na upuan at di basta yung plastic chairs lang.
Meron nga palang isang baby who caught my attention. Daughter sya ng Sales Supervisor namin sa office at invited sa party... eto ang pic... ang gandang bata! :)

Hyun lamerz... Wala naman ako masulat masyado about the party kasi it was the usual one, games, kainan... the likes. And, wala din naman ako masyado masabi about the twins other than hindi sila magkamukha =) By the way, Bes, yung mom nyang twins na yan ay diagnosed with PCO. Rap and Gab are products of Clomid, kaya hindi sila magkamukha kasi magkaiba sila ng egg. Nung marami ng fertile eggs si Sha (mom), ininform sya ng OB nya na pwede na sya mag-conceive kaya ayun, twins ang lumabas. =) Nasabi ko lang para magkaroon ka ng hope. Hehehe...

Passion for dancing... singing... cooking... Passion, passion... What is "passion"? Passion (as a noun), according to dictionary, means a strong feeling or emotion; it is an intense emotion. In lay man's term, it is a strong love for anything--may it be a hobby, belief or action.
I envy people who have passion on what they're doing. They just do not have the talents to show but they love their talents! I admire them because they do not just focus on what they are good at but they still try to develop that skill. They attend classes to hone their skills, they teach/share what they know and they make money out of their "passion".
There are only few people I know who are very passionate on the things they are doing, and I look up to them because at my age, I haven't discovered which talent to focus on... I've got few skills that I can be very proud of but I still want to know which one to really love...

Basketball Championship

Our department, CMG has made it to the basketball finals. Preparations were done 3 weeks prior to the said date of the championship. We had our department shirt, tarpaulin and banners to show our support. I already felt the tension as I entered the gym and I know that this would be one helluva game. Players from both teams were really good and I feel that it would be a very tough fight.

Howls and cheers surrounded the gym and both sides of the court were really shouting at the top of their lungs to show support to their respective teams. It was a very tough game and CMG was leading in the first quarter... I thought it would be like that until the end of the game but the other team exerted too much effort that CMG was not able to catch up with the score.

The team only got the first place but each of them gave their best efforts in order to reach as far as the finals. I guess for me, we are still the champions!

I wanna be Bilbil and Puson-free!

I really gained too much weight. My waistline is already 28 inches from 27, my puson is already bulging (as in!), I'm 115 lbs. now, and my legs are now called "logs". I really want my flabs to disappear and I'm desperate! Chos... Di naman desperate, pero gusto ko lang talaga mawala tong taba-tabaan na to. Well, meron ng solusyon sa problema ko... Thanks to our medical admin! =) She gave me this fat loss pill, Zhen de Shou ang name and it really focuses on the puson and tummy. So there... I'm just on my 4th day of taking the pills and I noticed results already. Ang fast no? Sabi sa box: no diarrhea and no anorexia. It's true! Ang side effects lang sa kin are: dryness of throat, lesser hours of sleep (sometimes 2am or 3am pa lang gising na ko, kainis!), excessive sweating sa lower/upper limbs and tummy area, and hindi ako nagugutom. The pill should be taken 30 minutes-1 hour before breakfast then yun na! Walang pagkagutom sa lunch time, at wala akong gana kumain. Nagke-crave lang ako for chocolates kasi parang yung taste buds ko bitter. Overall, the pill is ok and very effective. Dapat lang may baon na water palagi coz feeling thirsty ka palagi. You can buy Zhen de Shou from Chinese drugstores and it's just 250 per box; 1 box has 10 capsules inside. Plugging lang... ahahaha... paid ad kaya ito... Chos! =D

10 days to Chris Brown/Rihanna Concert

Yahoo!!! 10 days to Chris Brown/Rihanna Back2Back Concert!!! =) I'm excited!!! Super!!! Of course it's not just about the concert bakit ako excited... Syempre, YA event na naman itu... tagal ko na kaya di nakakanood ng concert with YA. Haaayyy... Last concert na niwatch ko with them was... Hmmm... Nina Live pa ata yon. Hahaha! Super ages ago! :-D

New look!

I changed my blog's look. Nasawa na ko sa brown at beige... hehehe... So, how do you like my blog's new itsura? Ok na ba to YA??? =)

Wednesday, November 5, 2008


Pakbet... I thought changing the style of my chatbox would not delete YA's messages... Nawala lahat!!! And... pahelp naman ako i-edit yung style ng chatbox ko bes... haaayyy...

13 = 31

13... 31... what's with these numbers?! ...Because it seems that these numbers are jinxed (for me I think). I'm not sure if it's just a coincidence (I hope it was), but when I went out in June 13 and October 31, my sort of a date didn't turn out as planned...
June 13, 2008 (Friday)
Morning pa lang...
I forgot my hair brush and di ko alam pano ko susuklayin yung hair ko no... I have a date pa naman, naisip ko, bili na lang ako ng new brush later para maayos naman ako. Eto na, towards the afternoon, nagtetext na ang date ko. I gave him directions because he was supposed to pick me up after work, unfortunately, he got lost on Buendia and didn't know his way back to Dela Costa. He reached Rockwell and didn't go back to my office anymore... He texted and said he'll go straight to Mall of Asia and that we'll meet there na lang. I was super pissed off and super tired from walking tapos toxic pa sa paghintay ng bus coz it was a rush hour. Haaayyy... Malas talaga! F na f ko ang Friday the 13th I swear! Buti na lang masarap ang dinner and I had fun! =)
October 31, 2008 (Friday again)
I thought things will turn out as planned...
My date was able to find my office and even went up sa floor namin to pick me up (although naligaw sya ng konti going to my office). He was just in time and we're going to Glorietta to have dinner and watch Nights in Rodanthe. Eto na, we were both starving already at di namin makita ang Tokyo Tokyo... What happened to me?! I should know where Tokyo Tokyo is! For some reasons, di ko talaga matandaan so pabalik balik kami sa concierge. After the second time na tanungin ang concierge, we finally saw Tokyo Tokyo... Haaayyy food!!! =) Dinner was peaceful... hehe... and tawanan lang forever... then, we decided to smoke after eating. We were about to buy our tickets for the movie na, before going to the cinema my date checked his phone and said na he had to call his mom... Ayun, we were not able to watch the movie kasi he had to go home na. Kailangan daw yung car... Ok lang naman coz I had to go home early na rin kasi may sort of get-together sa house. Balik na kasi si Carlo sa China so may chikahan sa house ang family. Kahit mejo bitin, I had fun naman... Although gusto ko pa talaga dumaldal ng bonggang bongga eh. So there... Wala na naman yung pinagplanuhan... Haaayyy... What's really with the numbers 3 and 1?! Or 1 and 3?! Tanong, yung numbers ba talaga or yung person?! Or yung Friday?! Twice na to... ayoko na maulit...

Have you ever been attracted to someone even if that person has shown only few extraordinary things that would make you feel special? Have you ever felt that you're being taken cared of even if that person is so far from you? Have you ever felt so happy whenever you're with this person? Happy not just because you laugh at his corniest and silliest joke he cracks but because you just feel so glad being with him... Have you ever felt so grumpy the whole day just because you have not received a single text message from this person? Have you ever wanted to talk and talk and talk to this person because you feel that talking to him would make you feel relieved, happy, and appreciated? Have you ever asked these questions and hoped for answers that would shed light on you...? I have... and I need explanations why I'm feeling this way...

My Song... Nowadays =)

Fall For You
There's a right or wrong to know for everything And the truth is somewhere written in between But there's always something missing in the dark There you'll find the true condition of the heart
Well, I can visualize the pieces of a dream, And it's not as far away as it may seem But if truth be told, it is you that hold the key To the question that defines my destiny
I've been in love, a time or two I've seen the world, when i'm with you I wanna fly and spread my wings I don't wanna cry, I wanna sing I wanna live and take a chance I'm not afraid to love again I wanna fall, fall for you And I want you to fall for me too
I've had plenty conversations with my heart Coz I want this thing to work, not fall apart So, I ask my heart how it can be so sure And it answers me because your heart is pure
I have every expectation that is true Coz my heart won't lie to me, much less to you But if truth be told, it is you that holds the key To the future that becomes our destiny
Unto the mountain snow that melts into the stream
My heart goes like a river to sea
To the heavens up above, I pray to God our destiny is love

Bon Voyage

Umalis na uli si Carlo. Bumalik na ng China... Kasama ako sa paghatid sa kanya, himala nga at di ako naluha. Ayokong ayoko talaga ng may nakikitang umaalis, nasasad ako...
Syempre para daw magmukhang foreigner ang Beloy... nagpakulay sya ng hair. Sa China daw kasi, pag foreigner ka, sikat ka at mas madaling makakuha ng work sa office or sa academe. By June or July next year, na ata ang balik nila ni Noreen dito (ang tagal din ano?). Although, di nya kasabay si Noreen, Wednesday pa ang alis nya. I invited them sa HK-Macau ng YA sa July and mukhang ok naman. Ayun, mejo tahimik na naman sa house at walang nagyayabang... hehehe... pero nakakamiss din si Beloy no...
