My life's masquerade

I may have shown significant amount of happiness in my recent posts, but I've got my own masquerade. It's now Christmas and I see everyone happy but me. No book or any other kind of earthly gifts can fathom the sadness and pain that I feel during happy times like this. Christmas is family and I feel so torn not having to be around my family. And it hurts even more to think that I long to spend holidays with my parents, them who had passed away. Holidays only reminds me of the memories I had with them that I will never have in this world ever again. Sigh, since I've started to live my life long away from home, I'm learning to master the art of living a life of masquerade. Anyways, have a merry christmas!

Moving on to 3rd


I'd like to call my chance to have a copy of this book pure luck. Whilst everyone is making a last minute shopping, I occupied myself rummaging every bookstore just to grab a copy of the 3rd installment. I wasn't ever this enthusiastic and attached with books until this time. I find it cool and a nice avenue for inspiration hehe.

Photobucket So I am seriously addicted to the Twilight saga that I finished reading book 2 in one sitting. Whoa! I am lucky to be off from work today, I didn't have to worry getting interrupted with my reading hihi.

New Moon, the book 2, was not as honey-sweet romantic as the first one. I was bored at the first half of it. Maybe it was because the story was all about Jacob and Bella. But I was somehow touched when Charlie was talking to Alice about the devastating life Bella had after Edward left. Well, I bet I'd feel the same way if I were her hehehe. Anyways, Bella and Edward rekindled at the end. Now, I'm up for book 3. Sigh, I hope Stephenie Meyer won't end Edward story just yet.

Fast Forward

I miss my blog so much! I feel like I was just freed from a dungeon for not being in the blogosphere for a while.

In the short span of 2 weeks, my life was like in fast-forward pace. I was moved to another department at work which came in a huge box of surprise. Since my transfer, I felt like I traveled through a time machine because my time flew so fast that I didn't notice it's almost Christmas time. This is the only weekend I have for myself since I moved. Last week was a real work-my-ass-off kind of thing. My precious weekends were spent at work. Oh well, after I celebrated my first work birthday, here comes new challenges. I hope that in time, I'd be able to master the stuffs I am asked to do. I am still learning the ropes, it is indeed a big challenge for me.

Ok enough of that professional side. I just wanna share that despite my busy work schedule, I still managed to have time for my lurv, Edward Cullen. OMG! I have never been so attached to novels that I read until Stephenie Meyer's piece. I am driven by her great passion in creating such wonderful characters. Would you believe that I watched the movie for the Nth time now? Although the movie wasn't well illustrated as that of the book, I still watched it because of Edward. He was perfectly described and brought to life through Rob Pattinson's. It was indeed an amazing masterpiece. I hope that the movie sequel will be better, especially for Bella to act more like the character in the book. I love the book so much that I keep reading it especially the lines of Edward that makes me awe. Who wouldn't wanna be bitten? I feel like a teenager reading this book. For a busy and stressed-packed lady like me, reading the books keep me less troubled. It inspires me somehow. I'm still gonna start to read the second book. It's because I still wanna savor Twilight for now and I don't want it to end. Ok, I'm drooling in a broad daylight now haha. Tah!

Twilight Mania

Photobucket There has been a number of people that I spoke to in the last couple of days and all of 'em are raving about Twilight.

I always see this in torrents but it never caught my attention until yesterday. Rona had gone gaga over this new best-selling novel. After talking wildly about this, I hurried myself to the bookstore and bought myself the book haha. I want to be a part of this new book Saga. I have the copy of the movie now, but then I thought, I should read the book first. I'm excited to see what's in store for this.

A moment of silence

Photo Credit:

Amidst all the terrorism and recession going on in the whole world, there is always a moment of silence when Manny Pacquiao, a phenomenal professional boxer, is on international television for a huge boxing fight. Manny's influence has greatly impacted the Filipinos especially to the public figures. I was browsing the net last night to check on the schedule and to my surprise, a headliner read " Military suspends offensives for Pacquiao-Dela Hoya fight." Logically, if we can put aside our angst this way, could it not be applied in real-life and be more sensitive? Oh well, I am only a tiny voice to speak up of what's happening today.

Anyways, going back to the event, the bout between Manny and Oscar had been one of the most awaited match. Ever since Manny dominated most of the tournaments, I felt this match was to somehow (in the slightest chance) regain what many Mexican boxers had lost. Yet after watching the fight a few hours ago, Manny has yet to be defeated. Although Oscar is really hot and all, Manny is still "D Man." Cheers to all Pinoys! If you guys would like to know Manny, read it here.

My First Work Birthday

Today is my first birthday with DHL, I turned exactly 1 year. And to give me a nice 1 year welcome, I was moved to a new work station.

And not only that, I was tasked to help on some investigation which I thought wasn't that urgent so I hurried to go home. While at the bus stop, my boss called me to say the job needs to be done urgently and requested me to go back. Ack! Good thing I wasn't on board yet. Poor me had to go back and help. I still saw the sun so bright outside on my way back. But after the exhaustive here and there investigation, when I went home, there was no more sun shining but the moon hehe. It was my first time to work that late. I guess that's a hint that on my first work birthday, comes greater challenges. I just wish for the best to come.

Enough said, I still had the best reason to smile :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

While the US celebrates Thanksgiving, I'd prepared a mini-thanksgiving dinner for all of us here at home last night. I prepared a seafood-themed thanksgiving which my housemates enjoyed. A day like this is worth celebrating especially if we offer it to God as a way of gratitude for giving us bountiful blessings. Cheers to all the blessings we had for this year. And we hope for more to come next year!

Christmas = Gifts

Helpless battle

Have you ever been in a fight where you're helpless? I am in a battle where I cannot fire back. No matter how ready I am, I just cant. And I hate myself for being in this position. I badly want to fight for myself, but I just feel that it isn't right. I feel this way because there are people affected, people that I care so much. And I just want to get rid of this awful feeling.

If only I could disappear right now. If only I have the power to teleport to a place where nobody knows me, a place where I could exist as me. I'm starting to feel suffocated. I need some air to breathe in.

Something to ponder...

"Good or bad, hard to say"
Yang Wai Hoong wrote:

Once upon a time, there was a king. The king liked one of his followers very much because he was very wise and always gave very useful advice. Therefore the king took him along wherever he went.

One day, a dog bit the king, the finger was injured and the wound was getting worse. He asked the follower if that was a bad sign. The follower said, 'Good or bad, hard to say'. In the end, the finger of the king was too bad that had to be cut. The king asked the follower again if that was a bad sign. Again, the follower gave the same answer, 'Good or bad, hard to say'. The king became very angry and sent the follower to prison. One day, the king went hunting in the jungle. He got excited when he was on the chase of a deer. Deeper and deeper he went inside the jungle. In the end he found himself lost in the jungle. To make thing worse, he got captured by the native people lived inside the jungle. They wanted to sacrifice him to their god. But when they noticed that the king had one finger short, they released him immediately as he was not a perfect man anymore and not suitable for sacrifice.

The king managed to get back to his palace after all. And he finally understood the follower's wise quote, 'Good or bad, hard to say'. If he hadn't lost one finger, the native people could have killed him. He ordered to release the follower, and apologized to him. But to the king amaze, the follower was not mad at him at all.

Instead, the follower said, 'It wasn't a bad thing that you locked me up.' Why? Because if the king hadn't locked the follower up, he would have brought the follower along to the jungle. If the native found that the king was not suitable, they would have used the follower. Again, the quote 'Good or bad, hard to say' stands.

The moral of the story is that everything that happens in this world, there is no absolute good or bad. Sometimes good things turned out to be bad things eventually, while bad things become a gain. Whatever good things that happen to you, enjoy it, but don't have to hold too tight to it, treat it as a surprise in your life. Whatever bad things that happen to you, don't have to feel too sad or despair, in the end, it might not be a total bad thing after all. If one can understand this, he or she will find life much easier.

East Coast fun-filled day!

Weee! I had a blast yesterday with some Filipino colleagues at the East Coast park. We had a BBQ party and it was really fun. I previously posted something here about my missing to play roller blades. Finally, I made it happen yesterday. Too bad, I wasn't wearing proper gear because I didn't know I'll be playing until King (colleague) told me to join him. Funny that he invited me yet he doesn't know how to haha.

Gleefully enjoying the ride without safety gears haha. I have not done this in years.

Snapshot of me panting like a crazy dog (but managed to smile) after a long skate. East Coast is like a hundred kilometers in whole stretch. And I didn't intend to burn all my fats in just one day by skating the whole park haha. I had to stop hehe.

Let's do this for Baguio!

Add your name to the list and send this message to as many people as possible.

Please do not just click 'forward'-- Instead highlight the text and copy onto a new message box.

Thank you.

Everyone who has gone to SAGADA, PULAG, IFUGAO,and other places in the Cordillera -- will notice that
BAGUIO has LOST its CHARM--it is crowded, it is polluted, water is scarce, it is full of squatters
even in the watershed areas and it is HOT. The pine trees are so choked with smog. Session Road is no
longer leisurely cool walk -- it's like being in Cubao (okey - exaggeration but i really hate the
billboards up there -- it's so cluttered, an eyesore).

Hopefully Sagada won't follow suit---but it's getting to be commercial up there too. Maybe by
signing up, you will help RECLAIM BAGUIO's lost beauty and stop the degradation of all the other
places we all love in the Northern region--so, how about signing this petition?


We believe that the City of Baguio is culturally, environmentally and aesthetically unique and
different from other cities in the Philippines.

We believe that Baguio is the nerve center of our rich and diverse cultures: the Filipino culture
in general, the highland Cordilleran culture, the lowland Ilocano culture, and the heritage culture
brought about by the Americans during the early 20th Century.

We believe that in the past two decades, the City of Baguio has experienced a substantial degradation of
its unique culture, environment and art.

We believe that the approval of certain politicians with no respect for the aesthetics and the
environment of Baguio to put up concrete structures such as malls, overpasses and flyovers only worsens
Baguio City's lamentable decay as a 'City of Pines.'

We believe that this overdevelopment resulting in pollution has to stop.

We believe that due to its unique history and blend of cultures, Baguio can be to the Philippines as
Barcelona is to Spain, Chiang Mai is to Thailand, and San Francisco is to the United States: a main
center of arts, culture, philosophy, education, tourism, sustainable development and environmental

We believe, therefore, that the City of Baguio deserves to be declared a 'Special Heritage Zone,'
so that the degradation brought about by overdevelopment can be minimized and gradually

We believe that Baguio City's heritage as a center of culture and environmental awareness
is a valuable asset not just to the Philippines, but also to the world.

We now respectfully call on the residents of Baguio and the Filipino people to sign this humble
petition, and for the local and national government concerned to implement and declare Special Heritage
status on this unique mountain City as soon as possible, preferably before the Baguio Centennial in
2009, so no further destruction on its limited cultural, environmental and aesthetic resources may

Please add your name to the list and send this message to as many people as possible.

Wake that brain up!

It's weird that sometimes I feel like I'm mentally drained. I haven't been proactively writing. Ack! Work and personal stuffs are really succumbing me. Everytime I reach home from work, I switch on my laptop but merely doing nothing. In fact, I've got pending loads to do, like finish the slide Archie has created, finalize some important matters and yet all I do is blankly nothing! Argh!

Lately, my carpal tunnel syndrome has started to worsen. If you want to know more about CTS, please click this link. I seriously need to rest and minimize too much typing or doing anything repetitive that aggravates the pain. Rest from typing? Would you? I've contemplated a lot of times. And the answer is hell NO haha! I just can't. So I've decided to purchase this glove reliever online. I'll have it shipped ASAP so I'll have a help. No more resting required hehe.

But then, thinking of how technology has greatly influenced us, I think we should not take our health for granted. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is not just like a headache. It's not a one pill magic kind of treatment. I guess nobody would want their good hands sliced just to get rid of those swollen muscles like the photo below. Aaw! Scares me so much :(

Financially stable

I am delighted to see the current exchange rate today, it's PHP 32.60! Isn't that great? Last year when I first got here, at this time, it was already around PHP28+ I hope it'll remain like that so I'd still have a merry Christmas.

Crowns of Power

Are you into online games? The evolution of Digital video games is extremely emerging nowadays. Different genre is continuously developed to entertain game enthusiasts like me. Some of the examples are role-playing game (RPG), action-adventure, construction and management simulations, life simulations and a whole lot more. I am a fan of construction simulations and RPG.

Rapid Interactive have developed Crowns of Power, a free massively multi-player online role-playing game. The game runs on 3D graphics where the character can move to different coordinates.

The game world is being designed to support hundreds of players concurrently, with the network capacity to sustain many gamers at different servers. Players will meet up with others from all parts of the world to fight each other or oppose one another on the field of battle. Guild system is also adaptable with the game for players to help team members on game quest, easy level-up and guild team battles.

The game objective is to progress your character through adventures and quests while obtaining rare and unique items, spells and powers. As you progress, your role in the social and the public aspect of the game could take on significant roles as people elect fellow players into positions of power and guild system.

With the above review, I challenge you to play Crowns of Power to give yourself a conquering entertainment. And remember, this is a free online game. So, let's play and share comments about your created character and game experience.


Loaded Saturday

Yesterday was one of the most exhausting days I had ever spent in the last few months. Whoa! My body is no longer as revved up as before. I feel like I've aged so much haha.

So how was it loaded? We started of our day with a little prayer for the departed in commemoration to Philippine holidays for All Saint's and Soul's day for Nov 1 and 2. After that, off we went to Tanjong Pagar to collect Archie's card. Later, we headed off to Ngee Ann City to open a bank account. Hmm, that was quite a long wait. But the bank lady was kind enough to let us go for a good walk at the mall and wait for her call when queue is cleared. Ok, so we window shopped in those high-end stores of posh bags and shoes. I was drooling over mid-day haha. Funny thing, we went inside LV store. It was my first time to get inside as I always see a chunk of shoppers waiting outside. Luckily, it wasn't so crowded yesterday. While inside, I was daydreaming that it was my own closet haha. I saw this one bag displayed and I was very hesitant to get near it or even touch it because when I looked around, I don't see people touching the bags. Hmm, so I'm not sure if that was how they shop or was it a rule not to touch the bag haha. I felt so dim-witted, clueless of what to do. Good thing I managed to kind of adapt what I saw from others hehe. So I moved away and looked around instead. Sigh, so near yet so far. But I thank for the experience.

Alright, so we continued to window shop. Actually, Archie was meant to shop as he needs some clothes for work. Thanks to Hush Puppies for their 50th anniversary, we definitely had a good buy. Eventually, the time was up and the bank lady called us up. Once done, we took a train to City Hall and window shopped again for shoes. I'm actually looking for a nice pair of stilettos. But I just didn't have enough energy and patience to walk some more because I was starting to feel really exhausted. Every after a bus or train ride, walking was the means of transport. Whew! So we just passed our time until we decided to head home and stop at Holy Trinity church to attend mass. Off we went with an hour bus ride. Since we arrived pretty early at the church, we decided to drop by at the Filipino store to buy some ingredients for our menus. After the mass, we didn't go home yet. We went straight to the supermarket to buy groceries. We thought of doing all chores in one day so we could just bum around the next day hehe. So to sum it up, we spent 12 hours doing all these stuffs in one Saturday. Praise God for another day despite exhaustion.

Go Tisha and Geoff!!!

PhotobucketAlign Center

OMG!!! I am so much addicted to this Series. I've been a follower since season 2 and to show support, I wave The Philippine flag for being currently on top of the race. Go Geoff and Tisha, make us proud.

If I may, I know that in every competition there will always be a loser and a winner. And it is inevitable that contestants tend to involve more than what is required and may say bad remarks to opponents. I believe that to be a good player, means knowing how to show sportsmanship to the rest. I hope that by the end of the season, these players would remember the wonderful experience more than the bad. Either we win or lose, whatever happens, the experience is incomparable. I wish I could join, too. Although I don't have the stamina to eat exotic foods, surely I'd lose on that challenge haha. Anyways, hep hep hurray for Philippines!

Defensive Mechanism

I searched for the synonyms of these two words and I found Defensive = Guilty ; Mechanism = Means or written better as "means guilty."

Yes, this is very true for someone that I happen to deal with often. She is one person I never thought would be that defensive with her acts considering the "title" she has. I cannot simply comprehend why she treats people like us so stumpy. She claims to have been brought up by someone like us. Hmmm, she should somehow act according to what she was taught right? Well, I guess the teacher or whoever guided her in growing up may have missed some essential parts - like how to co-exist with other people. I don't have any personal grudge with her but I'm just merely citing what I see of her. And I must say, she disappoints me completely.

Actually, I'm not directly involved with whatever issues she has but I just feel for some people. They come to me and tell what they feel. And I totally understand where they are coming from. I will surely feel the same way had I been part of it, too.

At first, I just let the chitchat come and go. Why? because being a person with a decent education, would know when to give the other person the benefit of the doubt. And I guess it is but fair to also hear what she has to say or atleast act on.

As months and days passed, there are times when she's ok but more oftenly she's not. I thought I could bare the sour treatment but as of this morning, I realized that it's not worth my day to see her more in the years to come. I am not in favor of how she defensively "guards her own hoard of sheep" infront of others. She evidently shows prejudice without empathy for others. Personally, I have my own prejudices too, but to be noticed by others especially if I hold a certain "crown of distinction", I should atleast be a little discreet. Her strategy of defense makes her more susceptible. Argh! I totally lost the drive to hang on longer. Talk about fast forward, I wish its 2009.

Swamped but happy

I have been swamped with a lot of things to do lately both at work and some personal errands. And gosh, I have not watched the TV series for a week now. I worry that I may lose track of what I'm opted to do. My mind is so preoccupied. If only I could fast forward time and let this month end effortlessly. Actually, not just this month but fast forward this year haha. I am so looking forward for the year to come. 2009 is what motivates me to really work my a** off. I may sound blur to you but I'm just happy for 2009. Cheers!

Getting to the other side

Aside from a sweet surprise birthday treat we (with my housemates) gave to our friend, I went with Archie to Boon Lay to claim his medical result. Whoa, the ride is really from end to the other end. Seriously, even if it is only one train ride if it would take over an hour, is really a pain in the a**! Ack! It's too far. Now, I got that chance to get to the other side of Singapore. Whew!

I feel happy this weekend. My friend celebrated her birthday and we, her housemates led by her boyfriend shared efforts to create a surprise party for her. I cooked pancit (stir-fried noodles), Archie blew the balloons while the rest prepared the food. It was such a sweet surprise. All six of us had a well-dined birthday party at our own home.

Counting for a lonely Xmas

I haven't been able to update my site for almost a week now. I am stuck with work and the change of time in AU and NZ is completely nuts. I log in here just merely staring and scrolling the bar each time. Argh! I have so many things in my mind but with just little time to unload it.

My colleague is on leave for a week so I gotta cover for him. That means, my work plus his work equals stress hehe. I guess a week won't hurt, will it? I'll survive.

It's 62 days more before Christmas. Ack! I'll be spending again my second year of loneliest christmas and new year abroad huhu. I wish next year will be different and hopefully spend it back home with my big family. Here, not even a colorful light nor a christmas song is heard. I feel like I am in an industrial-desserted island hehe. Ok, this is not complaining. I just miss the christmas songs, christmas tree, lanterns, and santa. Can someone please play for me a nice christmas song? :P

Can you forget what you do all your life?

I went to attend mass last night and it was my first time to ever witness a priest forget (or should I say) missed some parts of the mass. He totally forgot about the "Our Father" part and went straight to "Sign of Peace". I was completely surprised. Hmm, maybe the priest was too hungry to figure out which comes next. I just hope it won't happen again as it loses the spiritual momentum.

The Parable of the Prodigal Son

I am sure everyone of us have heard about one of the most famous and told parable stories of the bible. I used to watch it in Lenten season in religious movies. And I remember while I was younger, this parable was also acted in a biblical cartoon television series.

The Parable of the Prodigal Son is found the New Testament, Luke 15:11-32. It is a story about a man with two sons. The younger son was in a hurry to get his inheritance while his father is still alive. And so his father obliged. He went to the city and spent his money on wastage and eventually enslaved himself after losing all the money. After what happened to him, he opened his senses and decided to return to his father to ask for forgiveness. He even made a bargain to his father if he could work for him as one of his servants.

Soon as he returned home, his father welcomed him with open arms and quickly butchered a fatted calf to rejoice for his return. This was what made his older brother jealous of the treatment that his younger brother got. He felt that he should have been rewarded more over his younger brother who had been away for a while. But his father answered instead and said "Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found."

This parable is something that can continuously inspire us about life. We, people should value repentance more than anything in this world. For if we repent and humble ourselves for our mistakes, we are graced with forgiveness and blessings in return. A true person who has love in his heart will always have room to ask forgiveness and to forgive those who have sinned.

HSM3 in Theatres Oct 24!

Wild Cats are back! Hurrah to all High School Musical fans out there like me.

The third installment of the blockbuster movie is to hit the theatres soon and I'm pretty sure a lot of fans are dying to watch the screening.


Since it is the senior year for HSM, the movie would all be about graduation and growing up. I remember way back 11 years ago when I graduated in high school (quite long time) I was very active in outdoor activities. I was a part of the campus dance group and joined sports activities to develop my talents and potential skills. And who would miss high school without having a crush? During my time of course I did have an apple of my eye, though he never knew he was haha. Anyways, my graduation was pretty alright. Me and my friends had our proper goodbyes. We exchanged contact numbers and had the best of fun all night after the ceremony. It was the first time I ever drunk liquor then *winks*

The hardest part of being with high school friends would be graduation. It is difficult to suddenly change from the usual routine of seeing friends almost everyday of the week. It is hard to say goodbye not only to them but to the whole memories spent in high school. All good and bad days with teachers, academic opponents and crushes is difficult to let go. But despite the parting ways, graduation (on the brighter side) is not the end but a new beginning for each one to grow and be a level higher in making their dreams come true. Just like Troy Bolton, who knows if he'll be the next Michael Jordan? So let's think of graduation as the opener for bigger horizons. Cheers to all graduates!

Blogosphere keeps me up late

Why can't I resist the blogosphere? I am so hooked with blogging that I can stay up late at night on weekends. Hmm, it starting to feel like home to me more than my physical home. I just have so many things in mind and this is the only place where I could mention it all. *winks*

How has God changed our life?

I grew up in a big family where the words of God are abundantly preached. Most of these preachings are bible scriptures that really touches my heart. I have been into a lot of Bible reflections done in many different ways such as retreats and weekly Bible sharing at home. This practice at first was difficult to understand, until I found a personal relationship with God. These religious exposures I have made me accept Him in my life and obey in as much as I could His teachings.

God has changed my life in so many ways that I cannot count. There have been times where I feel like giving up but my love for Him is what keeps me going on. Since then, I have lived and inspired my life with these Bible verses:

Jeremiah 29:11-13
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."

Proverbs 3:5-6
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."

These are my motto in life. It is indeed enriching to read the Scriptures. If you feel like it is time for you to reflect, CineMeetings & Events is hosting the first-ever Theatre Church Conference in Silver Spring, MD on October 22 & 23. Find out more on how God can change your life. Find out more information on how to make your life worth living and dying for. It is never too late to have a change of heart in God. Find out more and be a part of this event to strengthen your personal relationship with the Lord.

Homework on a weekend

Yesterday was not quite a busy Friday for me. I met up with Archie at Kembangan MRT to drop by at Coco Hub. It's the place where me and my colleagues usually spend our after Friday work to have a sip of sweet Thai coconut, that I just love. By the way, it is also us that named the place Coco Hub hehe.

Right after, we went to Bugis to see some gift ideas. Christmas is just around the corner. It was a short yet helpful errand to make. We saw some potential stuffs. We've definitely checked our lists then left.

As of this moment, I haven't started to watch the series for this week as I am stuck doing this team minutes assigned to me in prep for the Tuesday ISO Audit. Poor me, my Saturday afternoon was kept doing paperworks. Oh well, atleast I'd be of help to my colleague who has a handful of work stuffs hehe. I might ask him soon of my Starbucks. Eve, Richard still owes us that coffee right? I should have two! *winks*

Anyways, I'll be back in a few. Have to do some of these papers first before I drown in blogosphere. Ciao!

Happy 1yr to me in SG!

Happy 1st birthday to me in Singapore. Today is my 1st year anniversary in the city of prohibitions. The time flew so fast that I didn't realize. I am so happy to be here. I've got no regrets for leaving my comfort zone back home. The blessings that I received here is more than what I expected. Despite my grieving before, God didn't leave me empty handed. He gave me a good job to start anew. And it is truly a magical feeling to witness God's miracles. I am one of His believers. I need not to see Him just to believe that He does. I love you God and thank you for your guidance. You make me a stronger child every day in each life battles.

This is my blessing from Merlion a year ago LOL!

Prison Break Update

Hi Everyone! I watched episode 7 of PB last night. I just didn't have time to update as I have so little time left. The current episode was very interesting for me hehe. I really applaud the brains behind this hit-show. The strong characters could be soft, too. Just like the task given to Sucre, he had to pretend like a hunk guy in the pool just to get close to the holder of Scylla. All viewers I assume may have apparently thought the same thing - that the guy is a gay. But hold your horses, when Sucre got invited in his suite for a drink, the guy happens to be married. And wanted Sucre to make love with his wife as his thing is useless (for lack of a better term) haha! It was a bit of a laughter on that scene. Nice one! Stay tuned...

Friends for Real

I am so happy to reconnect with my friend after a long time. I think it is what true friends is about. Love, forgiveness, and understanding are the keys to make a friendship last. If you don't have these, then you can only get to meet friends that would only last for a short time.
A friend is someone you can laugh and disagree with at times. But at the end of the day, no matter how huge is your differences, you still get along pretty well. Real friends don't compete. I am grateful to be surrounded by a lot of people because I get to see the real ones from not.

DST Mode

Sleepy, this was the feeling that welcomed my first day at work today. Some parts of Australia and the whole of New Zealand is back to Daylight Savings Time. This means, waking up an hour earlier from my usual time which is 4:45am and 5:20am. Ugh! It's that time of the year again ranting every morning of each working day. I'm two months away from turning 1-year old with my job and I still can't get to accept fully the thought that I - have to wake up in the wee hours to prepare for work. Sucks, right? But at the end of the day, I am happy. Well it's because I'm done with my day while majority are only half way through hehe. That's what I gain from the pain of waking up early. Ahh! enough complaining! I love it anyway.

Anyways, before I even felt dragged and sleepy, I went to attend the 4th birthday of Moira yesterday. She's the adorable child of my high school friend Queenie. It was fun to see kids around, huhu makes feel old not have one for myself LOL! The food was great, thanks Queenie!

Remember Michael Knight?

Photo Credit:

I am one of the avid viewers of the original Knight Rider some 20 decades ago. Coincidentally, it made it's television debut on September 26, 1982 - my bday. David Hasselhoff a.k.a. Michael Knight was at the prime of his career back then. Obviously, I was then too young (exactly 2-years old) to understand the show. But thanks for being in the third world, international hit-series would be shown after a few years. As I can recall, I think I was about 8 or 9 years old when I started to watch it in cable. Oh well, enough of the past. It just makes me older hehe.

The remake of Knight Rider debuted this fall with Justin Bruening a.k.a. Mike Traceur, the new driver of Kitt - name of the supercar. This is a brand new twist of story for the show. According to my source Mike is an ex-soldier that got recruited by Knight Industries to battle ruthless mercenaries. With the combined producers of "The Bourne Identity and Mr and Mrs Smith", the series is surely packed with speed, drama, and a whole lot more of twists. Another hint, Michael Knight is set to guest in the show. Stay tuned!

Surfing weekend

And so the week ended with not so much of a blast after I got back from my short vacation. Work as expected have become handy despite lack of manpower. I survived.

Right this moment, I am drowning myself over the net searching for resources for an upcoming event. Truly it is difficult to choose from different vibrant and beautiful creations. Well, I better start sorting it out to my best-est pick. Clueless of what I'm talking about? You'll know for sure, soon. *winks*

Back to the City of Prohibitions!

Hi Everyone! I'm back to the City of Prohibitions. Thank God I arrived safely despite the heavy rains back in Philippines.

First, I'd like to say thanks to all the people who remembered me on my birthday. It was indeed a sweet thought of you. Second, I apologise for not being able to update my site during my vacation.

Banzai - Big Sushi Winner!

Bored? Having fun after tiring activity is an essential way to refresh our mind and forget about boredom.

Recently a new party game from Screen Games was launched. It is called Banzai, a betting game taken from absurd stunts taken from the Super Banzai Video Show. This game is suitable for ages 16 to adult with 2 or more players.

The team chooses a “Shogun” who plays the DVD Banzai Menu button through out the game to watch the video and its result. The plastic sushi and Betting Cards are equally distributed among the players. Let the game begin!

The game rules have 3 Steps.

1. Betting Clips. The Shogun plays the video, depending on the challenge the players watch the video and guess from the 2 to 5 outcomes. After the premise, players have 15 seconds to make their sushi wages using chopsticks only without in contact with any body parts.

2. Betting Cards. Whoever has the most sushi controls the bet and puts their Betting Card under the Community Betting Bowl. This signifies that the first chance to win the pot, each player who thinks that their guess is the right answer can match the bettor’s amount of sushi (ante up) or they can choose to fold and sit out the round (Poker style). The players who did not fold and chose to stay in the round now place the card representing their outcome guesses under their individual Sushi Bowls. This signifies that they have the second chance to win the pot.

3. Wining the Pot. Once all of the bets are in the Betting Bowl and the Betting Cards are in their proper places, the SHOGUN hits the Continue button on the DVD Menu. The Banzai stunt now plays and the outcome is revealed. The player with the card under the Betting Bowl now reveals their guess. If their card matches the actual outcome on the disc, then they win all of the Sushi in the pot! If they guessed wrong, then all of the players still in the round show their cards. The pot is divided among everyone who guessed correctly. If nobody guessed correctly, then each player removes the Sushi they bet, puts it back into their Sushi Bowl, and goes on to the next clip.

Whoever wins all the sushi, wins the game. Kanpai!

See below for the games screen shot I have downloaded.

Play Banzai now and show that Chopstick skills. We'll for me as an Office Worker, it is a fun to play with my colleagues and friends. It is available to purchase online and see Tako on his Myspace page.
ScreenLife Games is at it again. They launched a new Banzai game. Check it out:


A Vacation to Remember

iLasik Technology - Vision Breakthrough

Through the years that have gone, we are continuously exposing our eye sight to different radiations from technological innovations like television, video games and computers. I have been working with computers since its evolvement in 1990’s to present and I tend to suffer migraine and blurry vision. The old fashion way to resolve this issue is through wearing eye glasses or contact lenses, which sometimes is annoying to use.

Good thing new method was developed by Scientist and Ophthalmologist through LASIK technology which helps us regain our 20/20 vision or better. This procedure is widely used in the US Military and NASA to improve the vision of specialized personnel facing extreme and physically demanding conditions at work. iLasik Technology uses 2 lasers to restore abnormality within your vision which is clinically proven to provide excellent safety and visual results.

You will be surprised that people wearing eye glasses are good candidates for iLasik procedure. you must be 21 years old, in good health, have stable vision prescription for at least one year and no existing eye disease in order to take advantage of the procedure.

There is no mystery on this method. Furthermore, it is reasonably affordable. So what are you waiting for? Be a part of the “Generation I” just visit LASIK information for more details. Find the perfect choice that matches your comfort!

Charice Rocks!

O-M-G! Charice rocks bigtime. I could not help but post the duet she had with her dream singer, Celine Dion held at the Madison Square Garden in New York yesterday. If there are things worth proud of about the Philippines, Charice is one of them. She is truly an inspiration. Go Charice, I am your fan! Who is she? Ask Wiki to get a load of her. Better yet, visit Charice online to get serenaded by her enchanting voice.

That's how time flies since this weekend. I haven't been able to spend time here in my cyber home because of too much work in hand. I packed up all the stuffs that I need to bring home. Yes, O-M-G! I'm super excited. It's been almost a year and I'd want to make sure this trip (even if it's short) to be worthwhile. I have everything pre-planned from the day I depart to arrival. I miss my family. I miss everyone. Well, I hope they miss me too hehe. I can't wait to embrace the cold and foggy Baguio. Four more days to go, Baguio here I come!

Friends come and go...

Another wonderful journey had passed for me and a good friend at work. It is always a pleasure to meet wonderful people. I say this with all gratitude that she had welcomed me without any reservations and treated me well. I appreciate so much the thought that she never alienated me just because I am a foreigner. Rarely will I find people with a good heart nowadays. There are people who pretend to be nice but rotten within. And those people pretending so much to be smart but hell yeah their disposition sucks!


Eve, it was nice working with you. Thanks mucho for being a good friend. You have got a long way ahead of you. Aim high in your education. Trust me, earning a degree is like winning a lottery for a lifetime. It is your gateway to becoming a successful woman someday. Inspire yourself to become better and don't be like others who are paranoid, kiss-ass, and envious about stuffs just to gain success. If you need a friend or a big sister (except you're taller than me) I'm just a phone call away. Thanks again for the hospitality. You've welcomed me in Singapore warmheartedly. You are the very first I've met here who have seen the real me as a colleague and friend. Yaya, eh? Haha. Stay happy and out of trouble, ok? See you on your B-day. Muah!

B was hoping to meet the Duchess in the party which came in a surprise when Chuck introduced the woman with her, THE Duchess. Gotcha! While the party boringly continued, Nate showed up completely surprised to see Catherine, his mystery woman/Duchess/mom of his ex's date. Spotted! So much to get the camera rolling. XOXO!

Swiss it is!

US Open finally ended in favor of Swiss tennis player Roger Federer. It is his fifth trophy in a row. Cheers to all fans out there!

I was so tempted to take a leave of absence to watch the finals between Roger and Andy. Good thing my angel whispered me not to make such a big deal out of the concluded match. Truly, it would have been boring. Straight set wins for Roger? Come on! Where's all the fun? I wonder what happened to Andy. Was he taken a back from Roger's whooping backhand? Or maybe Andy was just given a taste of what it's like to be on top of the game? I think more stamina is required for Andy. I'm sure the pressure was all on him, with whole world watching and playing in a foreign ground, I bet it takes a lot of composure. Another year to work it out and he'll possibly make it.

Nevertheless, I'd still vouch for Rafa and Roger as the unbeatable duo in tennis courts. What's next?

US Open Finals

The US Open is yet another history in the making. My weekend was actually spent watching the men's single semi-finals. I watched patiently the match between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic despite the crippling connection on live streaming. I was cheering for the Serbian camp yet Nole didn't manage to outplay the former No. 1 Swiss player. Bye bye for Nole sweetie, see you next year.

Meanwhile, on another window is the match between Rafa Nadal and Andy Murray. Yes, I watched both matches at the same time, talk about multi-viewing. Hehe well, it was indeed a very interesting match. Rafa and Andy held their viewers breath with their spectacular volley. If I may add, I find Andy a threat to Rafa's crown. He plays effortlessly and amazingly executes his strategy on court. He's got a promising future ahead of him.

Anyway, I didnt know that Murray won until this morning when the game resumed at 4pm EST. Hurray! He's a step higher to meeting legendary Roger Federer. I wish I could watch the game. Who do you think will bag the grand slam, will it be Swiss or English to win? We'll see.

Wide Screen

Argh! All along I thought wide-screen designed monitors are same with that of the standard-screen ones. I didn't notice anything until now while editing my blog page. I am going nuts thinking why on earth won't the photos fit in nicely. I am using wide-screen monitor right now, and when I looked at it in the standard screen, it fits perfectly fine. Geez!

Seafood Mania

And the winner is, Mississippi Redfish Courtboullion with Seafood Dirty Rice. This is a masterpiece for Chef John Currence from Mississippi. I chose his recipe because I liked the way he imagined how his customers would want their seafood dish to be cooked. If I were to dine, this recipe will be on top of my menu. It does not only satisfy the taste buds of diners but the genuine mixture of his choice of ingredients makes it more interesting.

The menu is a cook off and must-taste. The steps on preparing the meal are actually easy especially for those learning how to cook. I am a passionate cook myself. I always try to add something different on dishes to make it more authentic. In this recipe, if I were to prepare it, I would add a little sugar in the courtboullion to balance the taste of mixed tomato sauce and lemon. This would help widen the demographic palates from kids, teenagers, and adults. The reason for this is that not all palates would prefer the same flavor. Just like kids, they love anything that has a sweet taste. For teenagers, a twist of both sweet and sour would make such a matching blend. And for adults, the original mix of Chef John Currence would be perfect.

The main ingredient in making a successful and sumptuous seafood meal is making sure it is fresh. Hence, the consumption of domestic seafood is greatly valued. It will surely satisfy diners.

Ok, stop reading now. Visit the cook off or site and choose/vote for your favorite seafood recipe and get a chance to win a trip to New Orleans prize package. Hurry, don't be left out of the plate!
