I've been online since 10am and until now, I still can't make a better template for this site. I mean, what in the blazes is the matter with me??

In just less than a week, I've done 2 layouts for Blogskins w/c I also post here in my free templates site. (Awww, come on.. Why not feign some excitement for me?)

Anyway, the point is, I've made layouts for other people but I can't make a layout for myself. For my personal blog.

I've surfed more than 2 dozens of sites offering goodies (that's what they call it folks), hoping against hope I could at least get inspired and make myself a new layout. (Ah, finally.. I wish.)

Coz you know what, I think I've actually outgrown the whole purple-ish and black-background theme. This version is more than a month, and by looking at other people's layout, I think I need to embrace some change.

I'm so grossed out. Really.

So, btw, can you do me a favor?

I mean, I just couldn't google things always. I need some help.

If you happen to pass by a free site w/c offers a really cool template having 3 columns, no iFrame nor any what you call "box-box blogs", black background (solid! lol..), even though not purple.. please leave a link on my comment box.

Thankies! ;p

Me and Ate Delia went to Nuga Best, BF Homes yesterday morning, 9:30am if my memoru serves me right. And guess what? We had our first ever free test of Nuga Best NM after three hours! 3 hours!

Arrrgh. How uncool is that. :(

Anyway, it's worth the wait. They made us lay our back on a Tourmanium Ceramic Heater Mat (aka "bed") for 40 minutes.

What I love the most is the five-ball projector though. It's kinda hot btw. We need to cover it with some cloth before it can be used on any part of our body. Kewl. ;p

So random..

Anyway, just a pic of my mom and yours truly. Pah! For the umpteenth time, many were mistaken that we're sisters.

It's either I look old or my mom look young, I always thought.

Yeah right.

No way fabbo! There's no choice. Pffft.

Anyway, my Christmas was awesome.

We had a mini party.. I got most of my xmas presents from my dear aunts (father's side). But before that we had lots of games for the children and of course, for the children at heart (including me).

My personal fave was blowing of the flour until you empty the mug. It's cool. After the game's finish, we all looked ghosts.. white faces (even my ears were white with flour) and everything.

The worst part is we all puked. Ewww. The feeling was like some flour went into our nasal cavity. As in, ewwww.. Really.

Anyway, how's your Christmas guys? Was it fun?

*(edited: 12-31-2005)
*Oh. Before I forgot, happy new year guys!!


Isn't it obvious that this is a quick post?


Anyway, I may not have a chance to greet you a Merry Merry Christmas at exactly 12am of Dec. 25 (I'm not going to stay in front of the computer all day coz I'll be busy helping my family to prepare our noche buena)... so I'm greeting you in advance right now.

Merry Christmas guys!!

And thank you guys, for always being there in the blogosphere. I love it when it's just a blogspot and haloscan away.

Haha.. My wish? A really happy holiday season and gifts for all of us.. Take care guys.. ;p

World peace anyone?



I can't believe how I barely blog. It's like I don't care about this site anymore.

I've been so busy (yeah right) like the rest of the world that I sometimes forgot, aside from this blog, I still have another place here in the web... waiting to be updated, to be revamped, etc.

You see, I have a my former blog. It was a bit more personal than this one (w/c brings us to the fact na mas close iyong blog na iyon sa heart ko).

More than a year without updates, I finally got the courage to do what I should have done long ago.

Curious? Well, it's not something to be surprised about. It's totally expected. Why not see for yourself?

Just watched King Kong yesterday in SM Manila with my dear mom and younger brother, Ian.

I walked into Cinema 6 with really high expectations. With Peter Jackson as a director, how could anything go wrong?

Sad to say, you can't please the same person everytime. And in my opinion, that appears true to Jackson.

The movie's visual effects are enthralling, no doubt about that. Local cinema can never make a masterpiece like that, at least not in the very near future.
~warning: spoilers below~

However, 50 minutes (more or less) had passed and yet there was no sight of the gorilla. I mean, that's the reason why we paid more than a hundred bucks, you know, and then, they bore us with one-hour introduction ek ek. Geez.

Besides, who would ever believe that only few people (less than 5 if my memory serves me right) had died during the stampede of the dinosaurs?? They were targeting what kind of audience? Those stupid ones? People having IQ below 50? Come on!

Some things in the movie are just crap. Plain crap. So if you still haven't watch it, good luck.

My advice is that you enjoy the visual effects and the never ending action scenes. The movie crew focused on it too much that there was so little time to solve many plot holes. Neither the explanation of the origin of the Carl's map nor how they get Kong in the ship was shown.. Too many questions unresolved.

And yet there's one thing I appreciated the most. It's the way Naomi Watts played the character. It was so real. Or maybe, it's just because of her expressive eyes. Whatever.

My Element is Earth

Just finished reading Dan Brown's Angels & Demons.

And I questioned my religion.. not my faith (unlike what other people said they had questioned).

I know very well that it's fiction, I'm quite aware of that, thankyouverymuch. Still, I can't help but wonder if it's really true that Christianity is just a pure imitation. These are some of the things that made me think that Christianity isn't really that original as it may appeared:

1. "Halos, like much of Christian symbology, were borrowed from the ancient Egyptian religion of sun worship. Christianity is filled with examples of sun worship."

2. "December twenty-fifth, my friends, is the ancient pagan holiday of sol invictus--Unconquered Sun--coninciding with the winter solstice. It's the wonderful time of the year when the sun returns, and the days start getting longer."

3. "The practice of 'god-eating'--that is, Holy Communion--ws borrowed from the Aztecs. Even the concept of Christ dying for our sins is arguably not exclusively Christian; the self-sacrifice of a young man to absolve the sins of his people appears in the earliest tradition of the Quetzalcoatl."

etc, etc, etc...

Aaaahhh.. Truly, I've mixed facts with Brown's genius in the way he narrated the story. It all appeared to be so real.

Pero ang pinaka-nakakatouch for me is this:

The College of Cardinals dropped to their knees to join him in prayer. Outside in St. Peter's Square and around the globe... a stunned world knelt with them.

Of course, you won't appreciate it if you haven't read the book. At saka iyong mga sinabi no'ng camerlengo sa mga tao.

Ah basta. The only thing I could say is that it's one of the best books I've read so far. Favorite ko na rin.

I salute Brown for his astonishing work. You rock!


Just an update

Anyone missed me? Haha.. (It's free to dream, right?)

Anyway, I watched The Fog yesterday. Di ko siya type.

...WARNING: Spoilers below

I hate everything about this movie. As in talaga. Gosh. The script, the actors, the plot.. Everything about the movie is just so lousy. Who would ever believe that after kissing the old ghost, the girl also became one of them. I mean that's just plain stupidity right? And one thing that made me confused was, what was the point if the statue was made incorrectly? I mean, wala namang koneksyon don sa the fog ek ek.

I actually thought that I only wasted more than a hundred pesos just to watch less than half of the entire movie. *frowns*

I've collected other comments from imdb about this movie. Here it goes:
- NO scare factor
- zero chemistry between characters
- completely lousy
- pretty confusing
- the worst
- a piece of garbage

So if you're planning to watch this movie, think again. Like what war_cat2 said: "Avoid this movie at all costs..."

The Fog : star

I watched Pinoy Big Brother: The Big Night last night. Err, up to this morning. Hanggang 12:30am kasi iyon eh.

Actually, it was my first time to watch PBB from start until the end. You see, I'm not a PBB fan. But I'm really glad that Nene benifited the most from the whole experience and the prizes.

She really deserved it naman eh. She's very strong-willed and optimistic. At saka, maparaan siyang tao. I once watched the episode wherein Big Brother ordered her to make a small study table. Ang galing niya. Sabi nga nila, she's the "kumander".

~The Secret Behind The Song

The song "12 days of Christmas" was created at a time when Catholics in England where prohibited by law to practice their faith. The Christmas carol was created in order to help young Catholics learn the tenets of their faith. "My true love" doesn't refer to an earthly suitor but to God himself, "me" refers to us, and the "partridge in a pear tree" refers to Jesus Christ. The other symbols mean the following:

2 Turtle Doves = the Old and New Testaments
3 French Hens = the theological virtues; namely, faith, hope and charity
4 Calling Birds = the four Gospels and/or four evangelists
5 Golden Rings = the first five books of the Old Testament (the "Pentateuch")
6 Geese A-Laying = the six days of creation
7 Swans A-Swimming = the seven sacraments
8 Maids A-Milking = the eight beatitudes
9 Ladies Dancing = the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit
10 Lords A-Leaping = the ten commandments
11 Pipers Piping = the eleven faithful apostles
12 Drummers Drumming = the twelve points of doctrine in the Apostles Creed

~from Candy Magazine, December 2005 issue (Candy Rap section)

Actually, I'm not much of a religious person. I don't read Bible that much. But I was able to appreciate the song because I can relate.

I have Theology class with Sir Troy as part of the curriculum. And last sem, with Mr. Cervantes as our lecturer. Even though I didn't read Bible often, at least I have an idea what's the theme of the four Gospels, the Pentateuch, etc..

Besides, hindi man ako ganon ka-relihiyosong tao.. At least, deep inside I know that I'm a spiritual person. In my opinion kasi, religious and spiritual are two different words.


I still can't think of a title...


Anyway, my blog was reviewed by The British Bitch in I Talk Too Much. Here it is:

Oh, for the love of God. Just in case I didn't already have a headache.
"If you don't like it here, feel free to click the [x] located on the upper right corner of this screen." You know, I think I'll do just that

Short. And bitchy. The type of review that could piss anyone. But not me. Coz I know better.


Me and some of my classmates in the middle of the atrium..

Me and Brent Javier in KFC (Me got starstrucked? Course not.. ;p

Yhel (the girl beside me on the left) joined the barkada three weeks ago.. And you know what? The first day of december was quite memorable (to me). Coz it was the barkada's first time to eat lunch together. Unbelievable? Haha.. Maybe, you need to read again my old post here to understand what I'm talking about. Geez. I'm happy. But not really that much. Reason? **bites lip** Ack. There are some things better left unsaid. Have a nice day everyone!

**edited (12-05-05) NOTE: I forgot to share that I already watched Just Like Heaven last Saturday (not that you will care, but I will tell anyway). A romantic comedy indeed. I loved David Abbott (Ruffalo)'s facial expression the first time he saw the ghost. Haha.. He's quite funny. He may not look that handsome but he's cool. I liked the way he delivered his lines. I also loved the way he called Elizabeth (Witherspoon) as Lizzie. Nice. And I also loved his facial expression when Elizabeth denied she knew him after she woke up from the coma (fyi, she had a coma for 3 months). Awww... Kaka-touch.
And of course, I love them both for having a great chemistry. *winks*



Especially if the post is crappy.

Somehow related to I'm-posting-about-not-having-anything-to-post-about crap.

Anyway, I just watched The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Hmmm... Isn't the woman playing the character of Emily Rose is the same person in White Chicks?

Oh. I'll be very busy with school-related things (e.g. homeworks, unit exams) today. A good excuse for crap bloggingTM.

THE END. (of crappy updates)


Just wanted to thank somebody


Know what? I actually think that last Monday (November 21) was my worst day ever. Here are some (two, to be specific) of the reasons why:

1. My left leg fell on a hole while we were currently outside the school grounds for a tree-planting activity. Goodness. And it's all because of my stupidity. I imitated a classmate who was putting her leg on the hole and acting as if she was about to fall. How really really stupid of me to imitate that feat! Coz until now, my classmates are still teasing me about that freakin' incident. Ack.

2. We (Ross, Yhel, Jecha, Thal, Rob and yours truly) were called by Mr. Zaratan, the discipline officer to sign our violation slips (my very first one, btw). Offense: "Noisy. Playing in the Nutri Lab". Good thing, it was only a minor offense. But still, oh my goodness. Really.

The game? Monkey-monkey.

And right now, I'm sure as hell that you're thinking "what the hell was that exactly?!", aren't you? Okay. For those people who are totally clueless (& also for those who keep on pretending to be an ignoramus).. FYI, it's the "You're it!" kind of game.


So.. What are you waiting for? Laugh. Out. Loud. (!!!) I'm expecting that. But please.. just please don't flood my comment box about the crap "You deserve to get that slip. Afterall, you're already a college teen now and you should be acting a bit more mature. In the first place, who told you to join the game?? It's for kids only, blah, blah, blah..."

I've had enough of it from the discipline officer and also from the people in the guidance office. So, quit it.. please.

>The other reasons were a bit more personal. And to be perfectly honest, I don't entertain the thought of sharing it here in my blog. Too personal. (And I'm sure you wouldn't give a damn about it anyway. Since it's not your problem, it's mine... ;p)

Yayness. Bullet straight to the brain. lol..

I was on my self-pitying woe-is-me mode when I went home from school the tiresome day before yesterday. I cried after I printed the schematic diagram needed for our Organic Chemistry Laboratory. Since I'm really close to my mom.. whenever I feel the familiar "bursting point" (a.k.a. "wanting to cry"), I tell her what's bugging me. That helps a lot.

And so that day, I shared all my misfortune with her. After I finish my I'm-so-unlucky monologue, I cried again. The second time I cried was different. It was as if tons of darn things was lifted off my chest. I said to myself, "Matatapos rin tong araw na toh. Matutulog ako mamaya tapos bukas iba na uli. Masaya na ako bukas, promise."

And I was right. Coz the next day was a totally different day. I feel sooo alive again.

Maybe, just deep in my heart.. the "Never bend your head, hold it high.. Look the world straight in the eye" thing is actually not my truest motto. I now realized that those simple Tagalog lines above (e.g. Matatapos rin tong araw na toh...), that I always say to myself whenever I'm really really in my downest moments, are actually my real philosophy in life.

And I thank God for giving me the strength to stand again on both feet. Since yesterday, I'm back to my old normal self again.

A.k.a. "the cheerful one".

I saw a list on the bulletin board (near the CAS) yesterday and found out that my name is not on the dean's list. Thank God. Instead, I saw my name on the President's list. I couldn't be any happier. *grins*

And of course, a.k.a. "the crazy one". (lol.. ;-p)

Dia: "Meron ka bang nailcutter?" (Do you have a nailcutter?)
Me: "Tingnan mo, haba nga ng kuko ko eh." (Look, my fingernails are long.)

I'm so like that.. replying to a question in a different answer.

Anyway, no animals were hurt while making this post. And just 2 glasses of water were consumed during the unknown number of hours it took me to type my thoughts into words.

Thanks for reading.

I haven't eaten my lunch yet. (Would you believe that??) I'm so hungry I could eat a whole pig. Well, now.. that's an exaggeration. Oh. To hell with exaggerating things (and grammar)!!! Right now, the only thing I want is to eat. As in EAT. (Making mental note to open the fridge the second after clicking "publish post".)

Till next time. ;p


Change is the only thing constant in this world

Yeah. The only thing indeed.


Anyway, meet Nini. Like what I've told you before, we've been friends for awhile.. to be specific, since the first day of the first semester. We've been through many ups & downs. Battled many ka-"shoongakzness" together. Etc.

Unfortunately, things change. And so do people. I just woke up one schoolday morning & realized that I'm alone. Literally. (But to clear one thing, we belong to the same barkada. But in every barkada, there will always "a pair". Two friends who are much closer to each other than anyone in the barkada. Geez. You know what I mean.) Actually, the "three is a crowd" (crap!) proved itself hard on my face when I was a 1st year highschool student. And unfortunately (again), until now.

You see, she's hanging out with another person. We're not as close as before anymore. So maybe, you're thinking about what's the point of blogging this when in fact, it's what life is all about. People come, people go.

My answer would be: Yeah. But some things are just so hard to let go. Especially if it touched a great part of your life.

For me, Nini is a nice friend. I admire her for many things. She knows what a good time management is. Schoolwork, house chores, boyfriend, etc. She knows how to deal with those.

Her father was paralyzed and just went back from the U.S. while her mother is a caregiver there. Life is hard, I know. But when she shares it with me, it became more complicated. But I know she can overcome her problems, coz she's a really smart person.

I even admire her doing all the washing of her clothes (uniform, etc) in the evening, and still getting high scores on the quizzes the next day. I mean, I can't even wash my undergarments (undergarments, my foot! Do you really have to type this and share this with the whole world wide web, self?).

Oh gawd.

Anyway, I'm happy to say I've found a new friend in the person of Yhel. But I'm not saying I'm losing Nini as a friend. She's still my friend. And she'll forever be. But in terms of hanging out aka "company ek-ek", I'll be spending more time with Yhel. (I think.) Since, we hang out more lately.

Hmmm.. It's been quite a long day. And I reckon it's already time for me to sleep.. I'm so tired that the only thing I could think of right now is to lie on my bed, dream of good things to come, wake up late the next day, etc.. Haha..

Seriously though, I really need to catch up my zzzzz's now so I'll have a great energy for the greater (i hope so) week ahead. ;-p

Sweet dreams to me. And goodnight guys!


Blah blah blah and blah...

WARNING: Just a really really short (& crappy) updates about yours truly [in case you thought I'm already, well, dead].

1. Just watched Harry Potter GoF yesterday afternoon. One-word movie review: fantastic! Wahaha... ;p
2. Just ate a whole pack of Clover Chips. (so?!)
3. Just went to G4 awhile ago with my dear buddies; namely, Yhel, Thal and Jecha.
4. Just playing Alanis Morissette's songs over and over again (esp. the songs on her Feast on Scraps album *winks*).
5. Just feeling a bit tired.

Maybe, next time, I'll post something that's more "worth reading" than this. But don't worry guys, I'll still comment on your blogs once in a while.

Till next time! Still need to eat dinner. *hugs all of ya*

Harry Potter GoF : stars


A quickie...

Kind of post.

(image below was from meandme96's album)
Geez. First day of our Anatomy class and we were all required to memorize, as in really memorize the functions of organ systems (hell, that was easy), the anterior and posterior body landmarks (making a mental note to practice knowing the different landmarks with the use of one's own body), the body planes and sections, the body cavities (body quadrants are easy but do I really have to memorize all regions??), etc.. for our oral examination tomorrow. Would you freakingly believe that??

Oh gawd.

I knew it. Second semester will bring me lots of zits. *frowns*

"Dark and difficult times lie ahead, Harry. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right... and what is easy."

Anyway, today I've spent hours reading different HP articles in Verisaterum and MuggleNet. And right now, the only thing I'm looking forward to is the next Harry Potter movie on November 16, next Wednesday (whoa. great! I have no class on Wednesday). Geez. I am soooo excited with the Goblet of Fire. And soooo in luurve with Harry Potter. *sighs* Anyway, wanna see a picture of Victor Krum and Hermione Granger dancing during the Yule Ball? Click here.


I had a good time

We left home early. 4:30 am. Fetched the De Silva clan (my mother's side). We lingered in Caloocan for awhile. I dunno what time we left there but we reached Batangas City almost 9 am or something.

A small sign announced the entrance to a cemetery. Me, with the rest of the De Silva clan (all 23 of us, excluding the 5 people who didn't come due to some reasons I forgot to ask) walked to the grave of the clan's patriarch. Francisco de Silva, my grandfather, had a face that was difficult to forget, marked by deep worry lines across his forehead. I call him Lolo Isko. He had kind eyes. And he spoiled us (his precious grandchildren) so much. That's why his death had a great impact on us. It was so sudden. But we all knew we have to move on, leave the past behind. These things happen for a reason.

After visiting his grave, we went to Lipa, Mabini (still a part of Batangas). We put our bags and other belongings inside Tiya Leti's house. (Just a little info: Tiya Leti is my mother's godmother and she's an old spinster but she's super kind.)

We all chatted a little bit before we decided that we visit my Lolo Isko's land. It was so difficult to go in there. It's not a mountain but it was like we were climbing one. It was really steep and the yesterday's rain didn't help either. It just made things worst.

Mud. There was lots of mud. I was wearing a pair of my Havaianas that whenever I step, my other slipper just won't get off the ground. It was really hard. I saw Len-Len, my girl cousin, walked barefoot so I decided to walk barefoot also. Actually, if I only had my phone with me (I left it because it was low-batt), I would have took a pic of my feet swimming in mud. *grins*

Anyway, it was not as bad as you think. The only thing I wished while walking was that I won't ever get to step on a poop (ewww) or something. Gross.

Good thing, the journey turned out to be surprisingly wonderful. We washed our feet on a shallow river. That was the most amazing part of our journey. It was like we were in a Survivor episode or something. Cool. We even found a bukal. (I forgot the English term for bukal, sorry). At first, I was having second thoughts about drinking the water from it since I thought it was dirty but my Kuya Eric, another cousin, assured me that the water is pure since it came from the mountain.

The first taste of the water was invigorating. It was incredibly fresh and well, tasteless.

Minutes again and we reached Lolo Isko's land. Thank God. Anyway, it was vast. Unfortunately, the grasses were already high. I heard that Lolo's "right man" died already. I forgot his name. May he also rest in peace whoever-he-is. Anyway, there were lots of citruses everywhere. Dalandan, calamansi.. name it. There was also lots of sili, kalabasa, banana, etc. Each of us brought something while going back to Tiya Leti's house.

I was bored when we went back. So I turned the television on. But It was impossible to channel surf since there were no other channel than GMA 7. Oh God. And it was kinda hot too since there was no electric fan. For a province, I am not expecting an aircon in every house but I expect at least a single electric fan.. but I found none.

Her house was soooo many decades ago. (In fashion, sooo out).. It was made of woods, some of cement. The windows were like those windows during the Spanish regime. And believe it or not, there was not a single shadow of electric stove. Instead, she uses pots and forest woods for cooking.

For a girl who loved the comfort in front of a computer, the music from iTunes library, the feel of HBO, the thrill of blogging, staying in Tiya Leti's house was like staying on another planet. Oh gosh. I don't think I could ever survive living in that kind of house for straight one whole week. Much more for a month. The feeling was like I was entirely out of my element, like a fish out of water.

But you know what made my day the most? It was the hospitality. Maybe the house is short in terms of convenience, but Tiya Leti's hospitality was more than enough.

All in all, I had a good time.

Nah. That's an understatement. So let me rephrase it.

I had a great time. Really great time.


Just finished reading this. As usual, it's from Booksale. Only 175 pesos. Haha.. I love Elyssa Wentworth's character. She's super cool. Anyway, this is the synopsis: "The Lipstick Chronicles introduced readers to Elyssa, Alix, Dana, Carole, and Robin, five best friends who make up Allheart.com, an online greeting card company in Washington, D.C. Now they're back in the second collection of interconnecting stories of women, love, sex, dating, friendship, and breaking the rules of romance.
Elyssa-The powerful CEO is about to find herself powerless against the charms of a certain man determined to turn her life upside down..
Dana-She's a whiz at snappy greetings, clever rejoinders, and sweet sentiments. But there are no words to describe where love is taking the queen of the one-night stands..
Carole-She's just this side of jaded after the end of her miserable marriage. But as she's about to learn, the Y chromosome can still yield some satisfying surprises...
As for Robyn and Alix..

Between finding a Mr. Right who isn't all wrong and maintaining Allheart's booming business, they have their hands full keeping Elyssa happy, Dana calm, and Carole in line and under control. Wedding bells are going to be ringing for one of them soon, and they're all about to discover just what friends are for..."


What I'm loving now? It's the gallery of TheTragicTruth-Of-Me in Deviantart. A little info about her: She is a female "dark artist" from United Kingdom. I personally love her The Treason In Trust (image on left).. Want a larger view? Click here. It's so gothic and pretty amazing, isn't it? I wish I could also do really cool images in Photoshop. (Ha! I wish!)


Random thoughts again

Since I am too lazy to drag myself from bed that early, my mom was the one who enrolled me for second semester the day before the other day. (Awww.. My mom is the best.)

Anyway, below are the subjects (for the 2nd sem) and their corresponding units:

Theology 2 --- 3 units
English 1: Communication Skills 1 --- 3 units
Filipino 2: Pagbasa at Pagsulat sa Iba't Ibang Disiplina --- 3 units
Hum. 2: Philosophy of Man --- 3 units
Social Science 2: Sociology and Anthropology ---3 units
Natural Science 2: Organic Chemistry ---5 units
Related Course 1: Human Anatomy & Physiology --- 5 units
P.E. 2: Rhythmic and Aquatic --- 2 units
Civic Welfare and Training Service --- 3 units

Oh cripes! Come on. Look, look again. I know they are nothing compared to Hermione's. But hey! Fiction are called such because it's a product of the author's imagination so quit it self.

Sheesh. But you know what is worst? As in the worst??

**drum rolls**

It is the schedule man!! The freaking schedule. Arrrgggh. I have whole day classes from Monday to Saturday (Wednesday excluded, thank God). And the earliest time I could go home would be 4 in the afternoon, that is Monday. And the rest would either be 7 or 7:30 pm. Arrrgggh again.

Pfft. Why the heck are you complaining self..?? It was you (and only you) who chose this course and now you are complaining as if it was push into your face. Why can't you just shoot yourself and get it over with anyway?

Yes. Yes. Bloody brilliant. But I am not that mad. Oh well, at least not yet. Oh God, I really really must stop talking to myself or this will become a habit.

Anyway, back to normal me.

We will have swimming as our P.E. subject. And yes of course, we will all wear proper uniform on the pool (swimsuit for girls and trunks for boys).. But honestly, I'm quite uneasy just by thinking I will be wearing a one-piece swimsuit in front of my classmates.

Though I assure you I have already accepted myself for who I am (i.e., small-breasted and skinny aka "bones and everything bones"). Besides.. let me just quote something from Call Waiting by Michelle Cunnah: "After all, bigger boobs would only make me front-heavy, which is a bad thing because (apart from possibility of curvature of spine problem, or implants exploding on airplane due to air pressure problem) bigger boobs would only make me prone to falling on my face. Or not exactly on my face on account of surgically enhanced boobs breaking my fall--image of me bouncing along sidewalk on stiff implants is not attractive.."

Lol. Anyway, the only thing that makes me uneasy with the thought of the Swimsuit and I thing is that ahm.. You see, in our annual family outings on the beach, I never wear a swimsuit (well, childhood excluded). Not that I have scars on my legs or something but because of the sole reason of me being a skinny one.. I think a swimsuit just won't look good on me..

Darn. Surely, there's still an existing part of me wanting some curves. *sighs*

I have good news (for myself). I won't be having any operation in the near future. For those who can't relate with what I'm saying, maybe you should read my Wonder Who She Is? post. Hmm... So, we got our 3rd opinion, and this time to no other than Doctor Eufemio, the president of Philippine Cancer Society (third person from the left, wearing white barong).. The second I entered, he immediately said (while reading my ultrasound result): "Wag kang mag-alala (Don't worry). Your lumps are due to hormones. It's not cancerous. " The moment I heard him said that, I sighed with so much relief. It was like I've never heard a real good news for six months. I'm so thankful. You might wonder why my mom and I believed him? It's because he said it with so much honesty that I felt it came from his heart. He's not like the other doctors who say: "Kailangan ng operahin iyan para malaman kung malignant or benign. (It's a must for you to undergo a surgery to know if those lumps are malignant or benign)"


Haha.. Isn't it cool? I customized the pic. Want yours? Well, check out Hetemeel for yourself. Four pictures are waiting for you to be customized. I like this (Einsten) and the dictionary pic. Cool.

P.S.: Before you leave my blog, could you please do me a favor? Please welcome Emily Anne, my tenant of the week. Lol. I got 13 bids from BE but I chose her instead because she's a fellow Filipina and she got a really cool blog. C'mon, don't be such a fabbo, click the featured blog located on my left sidebar.. and give her the warmest welcome you know. Thankies a bunchies guys!


I am sick


Since the other day, my trusty hankies (and thin towels) are my constant companions. I have been blowing my nose like hell a hundred times an hour. Gross. Oh and not to mention the fact that my nose feels like hell already. Bloody hell from too much blowing. Ugh.

And what made things even worst? I have this my-head-is-being-squeezed-like-a-grape kind of pain. Feck. Good thing, I still could see the letters I type on the screen. I really feel dizzy right now.

I consulted The A-Z of First Aid and Family Health awhile ago. It said I have a sinus headache. Not that the book really talked to me as I opened it, but you know what I mean.

"This type of headache is a symptom of a larger ailment-sinusitis. Its causes-sinus infection, blocked nasal passages and a deviated septum-are better treated by a doctor. "

All understood except the last one. I had not a single clue what septum was (and to think I am taking up Nursing) so I opened Mr. Webster.

"Septum - a partition separating two cavities (e.g. the nostrils) or masses of tissue (e.g. in fruits)"

As Hugh Grant would say: "F*ck, f*ckity, f*ck." Fercrapssakes.. Pa, if you are reading this, before any violent reactions on my comment box (me *sniff* grinning from *sniff* ear to ear), let me stand corrected. That could even mean "fick, fickity, fick" for all you know. *winks*

Anyway, almost everything has been said crystal clear. (?!).. I think I should move on now. This is just a flu. (Yeah right. Who the hell are you kidding with self? Right now, you got your worst runny nose for ages!!)

Oh gawd. Maybe you will be hearing from me again after four days.. Or a week perhaps. I dunno. But by that time, I only wish I am already in my "sanity". And my nose will feel much much better.

But before I end this, I just wanted to say something really nice.

In honor of not having anything to blog about aside from my usual run-of-the-mill ramblings, I think this is the right time to share with the whole World Wide Web my deep and supah sincere gratitude to the person who gave me this [freakin] cold virus.

[sincere gratitude]
Whoever you are, thanks a bunch. You will be the reason why I will get many "get-well-soons" in the future. Without you and your (freakin) cold virus, I would not be saying "I feel soooo grand, thanks" to any people who asks me "Hi. How are you?".. And the last but definitely not the least.. without you and your (freakin) cold virus, I won't be having this post. Thankyousomuch.
[/sincere gratitude]

So there.

But I reckon I am still lucky I don't have a bird flu.. Oh well, at least that is something I could really be thankful for.

Anyway, thanks for wasting your precious time reading this crap. (And sorry for the foul words. I really feel so freaky today. Arrgggggh.)

Since I have this habit of lengthening my post until it reaches the end stuffs of my two sidebar (but to my dismay, it won't be coz I don't have anything else to say aside from what I'll tell you below, so I'll just put 2 posts on my homepage just to reach or "surpass" the stuffs on my sidebar).. I just added something that you might want to try.
Got the link from Nikki's latest post. Due to my curiousity, I tried it. There's nothing really wrong in trying, you know. Anyway, the result? "Your website is ranked #9,031 out of 53,322 SiteScores!" and "Your website is ranked 29 in the world. This is excellent and shows you have an exceptionally popular website." (Haha.. The last one is exaggerated though.)

"Marketing (how well marketed, and popular the website is) --> 6.5
Design (how well designed and built the website is) --> 9.5
Accessibility (how accessible the website is, particularly to those with disabilities) --> 10.0
Experience (how satisfying the website is likely to be) --> 7.3
Overall summary score for this website --> 7.5

Not bad for someone who is just starting to be unique on the blogosphere, right? Anyway, if you want to try it. Just click here. You will be given tips on how to improve your site, etc.. Very useful.

P.S.: Oh, I added a navigation thing just above my date header in case you haven't noticed. Tell me if it is just alright. Lots of thankies guys!


Of being lazy-assed

Yep. I am a lazy-assed girl and I am definitely not proud of it.

Know what, if it is just possible for you to take a peek under my bed, I am pretty sure you will be sneezing your brains out after. My room is not a mile different from yours. You will see dusts. Lots of it. Scattered papers (since the first semester). I reckon I forgot to throw those in the trash bin (sheesh! Same old excuses. Cut the crap self). Oh! And there are scattered magazines all over the table. And of course, that oh-so-yucky-creepy-crawly creature living on the dark corners of my room since God knows when!!!

Geez. Would you believe I just had an encounter with the most spine-chilling creature I have ever seen in my whole life?? Well, for you it might sound a bit exaggerated, but honestly, I just can't stand seeing a cockroach crawling on MY floor.

That is why my initial reaction was a deep, deep.. really deep breath. You don't know how hard it is but I grabbed my cute red slipper anyway. The next thing I did? Well, I just showed off my oh-so-gut-wrenchingly move whenever I see any crawling specie that annoys me.

And poof!! **insert sinister laugh here**

The life of that poor creature was ended. Or in short, it stopped breathing. How the hell I knew?? Well, logically, if you kill a creature real hard, chances are.. oh well, breathing is stopped.

So, there. Laugh at me if you want. But I really fear roaches. Even if it is just a single tiny one.

Actually, it is the only insect I know which (sometimes) is not afraid to go after you even if you already "shoo" it away.

Arrgh. Don't you just hate the guts of a cockroach?

If you are the type of person who don't like "mushy" novels, then I'm advising you to skip this bit and go straight to the tag below this one. Thanks.
"For when you are always in the wedding.. but never carry the bouquet." Right now, I'm reading Sarah Webb's Always The Bridesmaid. Bought it from Booksale (SM Manila) for only P110. (Geeez.. Secondhand bookstores are the best.) The story begins with Amy O'Sullivan fetching her dear sister Suzi from the airport with her "Golden Delicious" Australian fiance in tow. Then, the next scenes was inside their parent's home. You know, the same old interrogation whenever a lady brings home a guy. I dunno what's the next since I'm only on chapter three. Haha... But then let me tell you the line that really amused me. "It's bad enough when your love life is going nowhere fast--it's worse when everyone else's soaring!" (A certain aunt comes to mind. Lol..)

Wonder who she is? Read on.

When she was four years old, her mom gave birth to a baby boy. That girl was so pleased that she thought things could not get any worse.

But she was wrong.

Every childhood has its special imprints, memories that float in one's mind like ghosts waiting to be recalled. That girl's memory consist mainly of things peculiar to an autistic boy for a brother..

When people found out that her younger brother still could not talk at the age of three, they call him abnormal. But to her family, he is simply special.

At age five, he was brought to a school for special children. There he was taught how to write, read, talk and feed himself. Basic things a normal child should have known by now.

Years passed by and that boy proved that he is not capable of being productive. And he still can not talk. Every now and then, he has tantrums (worse than tantrums of any other kids that girl knows). A person who never experience being with a special child would really be shocked to see his tantrums.

He would bang his head on the wall so many times that the girl often wonders why that boy never got brain tumor. When he is on his worst disposition, he would actually even throw anything he sees across his path. Be it expensive or not. He never cared.

He would bit, hit or scratch anyone he likes.

She actually thinks he is a hopeless case. Even the family is almost ready to give up any hopes they have for him.

He is like a wild animal on a habitat screaming for serenity. The only person he feared is their father.

Anyway, let us go to the story of the girl. But before that, let me tell you a thing or two about her.

She was besotted once. Big time. During that experience, it was as if she was wearing her feelings on her sleeve.. that she actually had a huge sign plastered on her forehead that said: So Totally Bonkers for M***! Unfortunately, she realized one must wake up in every daydream. So it only ended up with her saying: Holy heartbreak, Batman!

Oh gawd. Just to make the introduction short, she is your typical girl. She dreams of happily-ever-afters.. Loves the things easy life could bring.. Wants to be a successful person someday..

But all that hopes became distorted.. She suddenly realized that her life will never be a bed of roses.. That life, itself, will never be perfect.

How could she forget that on March 28 (two days before her graduation), while she was actually ready to call it a night, she accidentally felt a lump on her left breast.

She immediately went to her dear mom and let her feel the lump. Due to ignorance of certain lumps, she cried silently.. thinking that all those time she had a breast cancer.

More than a week later, April 8, she had her very first ultrasound. The result?

"Solid masses, both breast."

She took a mental note of the term masses. Holy shit! Plural form. Which means it is not only one. The largest is on the left breast which is 2.6 cm at 11 o clock position.

She could not believe it. How long had those started? Were that lumps inherited? If they were, from whom did she inherited those? Or is it because of the not-so-rare times she was hit by her brother?

Questions. Lots of questions. But in reality, she does not want to know the answers. She might have develop a certain loatheness against her dear brother if the answer would be the latter.

She might be becoming selfish but this time, she is talking about her life.. her future.. The real issue is not about other people anymore. It is about her.

October 18.. More than six months have passed and her mom decided to accompany her to a clinic for her next ultrasound.

The result was still the same: "Solid masses, bilateral, as described. "

Unfortunately, the hypoechoic masses became larger. The largest one (in the 11 o clock position) became 3.1 cm.

Her parents were still thinking if they would let her undergo a surgery. They were actually having second thoughts since her loving grandmother said: "Hindi magandang galawin ang mga bukol na iyan. Baka kapag inoperahan ay tumubo pa uli, at maging malignant pa. Subukan ninyong gumamit ng mga dahon-dahon o tapal-tapal. Baka mabisa. (It is not good to touch those lumps. It may grow again once removed and this time it could be malignant. Try some traditional means. Maybe it will be effective.)"

But the oncologist said: "In my many years of experience, I never, not even once, did I encounter a drug that could really cure breast lumps. However, some people said that traditional methods are effective. I do not know. Honestly, I am not saying traditional methods are not good. Though sometimes, it leads you to false hopes. When in reality, it just prolongs the agony. And if you are wondering if breast lumps could still grow back after surgery. Yes, they do sometimes. Unfortunately, the medicine world has yet discovered the real cure to lumps. All I could do for you is to remove the largest one if you do not like to remove them all. Then, we will do some biopsy to know if those lumps are benign or not."

Christmas is coming and that girl has so many wishes she wanted to come true. But all she wished right now is that those breast lumps were just benign. She is still young and full of life.

Please include her on your prayers everyday. That is all I ask from you.

Thanks a lot.

Oh. Before I forgot, the girl I am talking about is me.

Gmail Invites

Since PureMood sent me a Gmail invite, I thought about other people who have none. There are still a majority out there who does not have a Gmail account. Not that it would really matter because Yahoo, in my opinion, is still the best.

Anyway, if you want or need a free Gmail (Google Email) invite, do not hesitate to leave me a message on my comment box located just below this post. Oh. And do not forget to put your valid e-mail address on the message box.

Note: Please, just please.. Do NOT put your e-mail address on the e-mail box since I like less hassles. I do not want to open my HaloScan account just to see the e-mail addresses, guys.

Or if you want, just send me an e-mail on my Yahoo account. I'll send you the invite as soon as I have the time.

Thank you.

This is my idea of a long post

Oh well. This is already a long post for me. And I can't think of anything much longer than this in the very near future. (Since sembreak means I'll be staying in our house more often.)

But then you will really never know, you know.

I just remembered that I must thank the person who made the Hello Garci tape.

Got curious for my sudden appreciation for the sound clip?

Oh gawd. Ahm. People (especially the pro-GMA ones), before any violent reactions. Let me just clear one thing. This is not a post regarding the very essence of any political stuff. Period.

You see, I have a great difficulty on waking up early. Blame it on the soft bed, nice dreams, super tiring yesterday. Or in short: Blame it on the great atmosphere which a new day brings.

The night before last night, I decided to change my clock alarm tone in my cellphone. I am not using a real alarm clock since it can not wake me up (honestly). I dunno, maybe it is because the sound is really not that persistent. So I opt for my phone instead. But just the same..

Yeah alright. It could wake me up. But then, the sound just passes my left ear then out to my right.

So a new idea came to my mind. All I need is a sound clip that is very much "alive". As in very much maingay.

Fortunately, as I browse my collection of sound clips, I saw my Hello Garci wav tone. Funny, I reckon I only saved it because I only wanted to show the clip to my father (if there is one thing he can not live without.. it would be news! On the television while he is surfing the net.. on the radio while he is in the comfort room.. on his car while he is driving into his office or back home. Name it. He is really into news. Super.).

Geez. Back to the controversial sound clip. Actually, I never thought it would stay on my gallery for so long. It was been four months already right?

But I am quite happy I did not delete it. Believe it or not, I am now using it as my alarm clock tone. And you are wondering what is my first experience of using it?

I woke up at the right time yesterday morning. I set my alarm clock at 6 am since I should be at school before 8 am. We had a culminating activity for CWTS yesterday. But as usual, I was late. Maybe I woke up early, but old habits never die hard.. I left our house thirty minutes before 8 in the morning.

Would you fuckingly believe it? Trip to school usually last an hour kapag nagko-commute. Or 40 minutes if may car. Wahaha..

Always late.

Another BE Moderator:

Hmm.. some of my thoughts:

Some of that text is just too small... I can read it, but it is hard on the eyes. I think you do OK on your English especially for one who says they aren't that comfy in using it... so don't worry so much about what others think. IMO, a typo here and there in a post is OK because no one is perfect... I know I have typos just because I'm too lazy to spell check and even spell check isn't always correct.

The header image... I'd either:
A) make it smaller
B) compress it so it loads faster or;
C) have it be more than one image so it loads faster

And one more, I'd make less posts appear on the main page so it isn't so long...

I got my blog reviewed by PM, one of the moderators on BlogExplosion. Her constructive tips about improving my blog were great. Honestly, I did what she adviced (the last one). I changed the how many entries you want to appear on your blog? from 12 posts to 10 posts. Hehe..

The header image? I am still finding that extra time so that I could make a new one. My friend said that the header image is like a summary of what kind of blog you have. I only wished my next one is better from what I have right now. (I also suck at graphics. You are not alone, Patrick!) At the very top, you could see my favorite motto. It can be read (I know!) but not that clearly.

You see, I am still in the process of knowing the right look for my blog. Waaaah. I am not using the term perfect again, aight? Because.. Sheesh.

Come on guys! Let us hear it.. *drum rolls*

Nobody is blah blah blah..

Other reviews about my blog from BE people...

I viewed your blog and it's ok, however the text is too small. And like OHB implied, if you want to put up a video clip, make sure the readers can click the play button first before it plays.
I, on the other hand, followed your advice and tried redesigning my blog with a new template. Although it looked good on the preview, it tends to mix up when i type the website manually. So i stuck with the default template, which is all right with me.


This is an urban ledgend. Splitting a picture into multiple pictures will not make it load faster. It might look that way though... because instead of waiting for an entire picture to load before displaying... the browser will show the parts of the picture that have loaded so far.

As a matter of fact, splitting the image will actually increase the bandwidth and time needed to completely load the full picture. This is because each image will have to have headers that define things like size and pallete and compression, etc. Having one picture means the headers don't have to be duplicated.

For you... since this picture can't really be made smaller without losing necessary detail... the best idea would be to get rid of it altogether and make a replacement that's no taller than say 400 or 500 pixels high. If I was doing it, I'd have your blog title and that cool-looking motto, on top of a background image that's slightly faded as to not interrupt the title or motto. But, that's just me.

Those are really great tips. Too many great tips (which I am in dire need) that I am actually thinking of what to do next after I post this. First things first. I know. I know. But it is like I can not organize my thoughts right now.

So if you are a regular visitor of this page (I wished!), you could only notice small changes as days pass by since I can NOT do all those things in just a single day. I also need to eat, sleep and do my other net itineraries. I can not blog all day.

Hehe. But I can go online for the whole day. Did that many times. I am just hoping against hope my mom would not see our electricity bill for this month. She would surely scream at my face. (Oh well. That is an exaggeration.)

I just received a SMS message from Iam, a classmate:
"Classmates: attention! We are all requested 2 come to school on Wednesday (Oct. 19).. 9:00 am. That is according to Ms. Parafina. See ya there! Pakikalat na lang ah!"

Oh. There was a time-saving U with an umlaut after her message.

Wtf! Still, it does not make a difference. I am not excited. Not that I would not be missing my dear classmates (but we are blockmates for geeeez sake!! We have been together for one whole semester.. I need a break.) Yes. You read it right. I need a break. We all need a break. So why is it necessary to go to school on Wednesday?

Our grade in General Psychology is not yet complete. We still need to create a blog and post our draft in there. But (I'm asking myself) how the hell could we do that? We still have not made our draft. The complete draft for the answers in all the questions each of us wrote on a piece of paper during our very first meeting on her subject. Btw, mine was written on a one-fourth sheet of yellow paper (lol. Just taking up some extra space).

My question was: Why boys are afraid to cry in public?
The question I picked was: Why are old ladies so ill-mannered? Is it because of menopausal stage?

So now, you have an idea what the questions were like. Those are questions often known to be easy when taken from one's own opinions but when based on different pyschological theories, those questions become so difficult to answer.

I dunno who picked my question. But the would-be answer is quite easy, dont you agree?

Sembreak will officially start tomorrow.

Cool. And sooooo fuckedy-shet. Why? Because.. I would not be enjoying my very first taste of my very first day of my very first semestral break!!!!! Need I say more?

While all the other college teens will start enjoying it, I still need to go to school at seven tomorrow morning. As in morning. Morning?! Yes. Morning, dear.

Geez. Can it not be after lunch?? Do I still need to emphasize the term difficult? As in it is soooo really very much supah difficult to get oneself off from bed so early in the morning.


But then, Nini texted me. There will be a meeting for all the members of the MDC organizations (e.g. Bailadores, Teatrika, etc.). And she even said that Ate Jannica, MDC Theater's Artists' Guild president, called her. The message of the call? Attendance is a MUST! But honestly speaking, I'm actually having second thoughts of going. Bahala na!!


Regular blogger wannabe

Since Sunday, whenever I visit my blog, I could feel the emptiness. You know, iyong feeling na parang may kulang talaga.

And I am not that stupid for not to realize what could that be. It was been four days since I last posted. Four days in which I could have shared my superficial side.

Well, albeit this is my blog (a phrase in my vocabulary which screams wtf-I-would-post-again-whenever-I-feel-like-doing-it). I felt rather compelled to post. (Suspect? Inner self, who else!)

Actually, I am already contented on adding new stuffs on my blog every now and then. (Obviously, you could see the results.) But do not worry, some of the nuisances will be removed.
Just like what the people of BlogExplosion said:
BE Member: An awful lot going on there with text and graphics. You should measure the eye candy with care.
BE Moderator: Yowch...auto-starting video = not cool = instant click on Back.

Yeah. I only realized that when I went to blogs of other people and became irritated with auto-play sounds. I know you also feel that. Especially when you wanted to ponder on some profound ideas being shared by another blogger, then all of a sudden a song which you least wanted to hear is being played on that page. Shit. Really annoying.

Anyway, I just wanted to hear your comments regarding the stuffs right here on my blog. Things that you like and things that you do not. Comment your worst, guys! They are all welcome on my comments page. Just avoid lots of swearing. It is kinda offensive.

So. Anyway, where am I?

Geez. Back to the real issue.

Honestly, I want to be a regular blogger. Like a one who shares his/her life frequently with the rest of the blogosphere. Not only because I get feedback upon doing so (admit it, we all want lots of sincere feedback the second we clicked publish post). But also because I want to reread the posts the moment my blog turned on its first year or even many years to come. Like for example, I wanted to know what happened to me that very same day. The only difference is the year. OMG. Is not that something to look forward to?

The only thing that stops me from being a regular blogger is the fear of being misunderstood. Honestly, I am not comfortable in using the English language. Hey, before you react, I just wanted to clear something up. I have English subject since I was on my kindergarten years, thankyouverymuch. And in fact, I love English. But then, I am just an ordinary person. In my day-to-day life, I only use the Taglish language. (For those who do not know, it is Tagalog and English rolled into one language.)

So, back from being uncomfortable, well I can not share all the ideas on my mind. Because I find it hard to put all those into writing since I need to translate it in English. FYI: Some readers do not know how to read Filipino.

I admit I am not great on sentence structures. That is why you could see lots of grammatical errors. (Hey, if you are kind and patient enough. Please care to tell me my serious boo-boo. Gosh. Thanks. I owe you two. First is the main blog comment and the second one is my grammatical errors.)

But then, I am not trying to be perfect. (The cliche nobody is perfect is in your head right now. I know.)


Since I am not required to go to school today, you are now reading an entry. (Come again??)

LOL. I told you on my last post that I got exempted on Algebra right? That is the reason why I am relaxing here in my room while facing the computer for hours already.

Update about my last post:
About Nikko? Well... Pumapasok naman siya para mag-take ng Finals kaso I don't know if he'll be able to answer all of it. I'm not underestimating him or something pero more than two weeks siyang absent. So, ayun...

Yesterday, I was late. Holy heavens! For the second time of this (Finals) week, I was late. Unfortunately, that time, our proctor, the high and mighty na medyo mataray ang dating na si Mr. Serrano, did not let us in.

Five of us came late. Five of us... Dia, Nelba, Angelica, Ryan and yours truly, stayed outside the room. Regretting why we didn't left our dear homes early.

I immediately called Ms. Parafina's mobile number. She's our adviser and she's also the MDC Gen. Psych. coordinator. Funny thing is the moment she answered my call, Ryan told me she's outside the class, I think in 205-B. Just four rooms away from us.

I cancelled the call. If there's one thing I despise reading, it would be "check operator services". I don't have regular load on my Sun number that's why I still need to change sim to be able to use my Globe.

We approached Ms. Parafina quickly. While hoping that the proctor inside the room 209-B would still let us in if we would just let her talk to him. She's our Gen. Psych. coordinator for crying out loud. Maybe, Mr. Serrano would be considerate enough. (We wished!)

But Ms. Parafina was firm in saying she couldn't let us take the exam since the proctor did not let us get inside. It's the management's rule. And that a rule will always be a rule.

But then, when a door closes, another is opened. She also said I got exempted on General Psychology since I got a flat one midterm grade on her subject. Cool. At least, there will be no worry of paying a hundred and fifty just to take a special exam next Monday. But she quickly added, she still need to meet the other four in front of CAS to know who else was exempted.

Anyway, after we finished the exam on Theology, me and Jecha went to SM Sucat. I still have to tutor her on Algebra. (Geez. I just wished Jecha will do great.) Their exam for Algebra is today. 11:30 to 1 pm.

We ate our lunch in McDonald's. There, in between eating my Savory Beef Rice, I explained to her the basics of ratio and proportion... the conversion of units from minims to fluid ounces, fluid drams to pints, etc.

Then, after the tutoring session, we went window shopping. There's this thrill I get whenever I'm going from a boutique to another even without buying a thing. But when I saw a pair of doll shoes displayed on its holy glory, I instantly forgot the shitness of the term "save" since the price really screamed SALE on the top of its tag. It only costs three hundred bucks. And it's not just a pair of black doll shoes. It's flat (normally), and Jecha even said it's a great match to my uniform: white long-sleeved blouse and white pencil cut skirt (or was the style really pencil cut? Geez. I don't know how to describe the skirt. But if you happen to know some MDC girls who are wearing it, then you have an idea).

Maybe.. Right now, my wallet is short of 300 freakin pesos. But I'm definitely not disappointed. At least, I have my third leather shoes for this semester. *winks*


Quizzy... Here I come!! *winks*

Geez. Not bad for a 16 y/o:
You Are 50% Weird

Normal enough to know that you're weird...
But too damn weird to do anything about it!
How Weird Are You?
Wow... This is true:
Your Ideal Relationship is Serious Dating

You're not ready to go walking down the aisle.
But you may be ready in a couple of years.
You prefer to date one on one, with a commitment.
And while chemistry is important, so is compatibility.


Geez. Nikko has been absent for many weeks. I dunno pero baka nga natuloy iyong operation niya. Almoranas raw.

Nikko's drawing on the whiteboard (taken one schoolday afternoon)

I wonder if he would still attend the Finals. Hindi naman sa pag-aano pero syempre concern rin kami sa kalagayan niya. Kung pagiging practical ang pag-uusapan... sayang naman iyong ibinayad niya for the whole sem.

Anyway, aral na ako guys! Monday na start ng Finals Week namin. Geez. Good luck sakin! (Good thing, exempted ako sa Algebra. Hehe. Hindi na ako papasok this Wednesday. I have more time to study for the subjects na itetest for Thursday and Friday... and more time to surf the net.) LOL...


WARNING: This is gruesome!

I received this pics through e-mail.

OMG! You could just see my shock when I saw this pics. Maunlad nga ang Japan pero grabe naman.

I don't know if this is true or what. Baka may gamit na photoshop or something. Pero imposible. Waaaah.. Basta kayo na lang ang humusga, guys.

Don sa mga kasalukuyang kumakain. Excuse muna.

Very inhuman. So gruesome. Really.

Tsk. Tsk. I only wished this pics were fake.

"It's Japan's hottest food. In Japan, dead babies or fetuses could be bought at 10 000 to 20 000 Yen. It is a thing against human race. Please forward this to many people as you can. So that it can be seen by the world and someone could take action about it."


Two down... *grins*

Iyong una is no'ng Monday. Graded recitation namin sa Filipino. Either monologue, extemporaneous speeech or declamation.

I chose monologue. Hindi pala declamation piece. Magkaiba pala iyon.

Wahaha... *chuckles*

Mine is "Kaninong Anak Ito?" by Teo S. Baylen. I got a grade of 90%. Cool. Buti na lang iyong nafi-feel kong kaba ay nakatulong sa akin. (Waaaaah.. Drama non ah) This is the part na parang akong isang nauupos na kandila... (Hehe.. Lalim talaga! Sheeet. Di ako sanay..)

"Ngayong ako'y bilanggo na'y siya mo pang inaapi!"

Hehe.. Do'n talaga sa line na iyon ko na-feel iyong emotion na kailangan kong ma-feel para mas convincing iyong dating sa audience.

Then iyong pangalawa is iyong aerobic dancing namin.

Dalawa lang ang naka-90% sa amin. The rest 80% pataas na. Ewan ko kung sino iyong isa. Pero binanggit ni Ms. Aquino na si Nini ay isa sa naka-line of 9.

Pero ako sure akong hindi ako naka-line of 9. Kasi marami akong nafo-forget na steps. Kaya napapatingin ako sa ibang ka-dancemates ko. *winks*

Hirap talaga kapag pinanganak kang kaliwa ang mga paa. Haaaaay naku! *frowns* Pero hanggang don lang talaga nakaya ko eh. Basta I did my best na mamemorize ung pagkakasunod-sunod ng mga steps. Kaso talagang ganon.

Tsk. Tsk. Lalim ko talaga ngayon. Yuck talaga! Di ako sanay. Hehe..

1. God won't ask what kind of car you drove.
- He'll ask how many people you drove who didn't have transportation.

2. God won't ask the square footage of your house.
- He'll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.

3. God won't ask about the clothes you had in your closet.
- He'll ask how many you helped to clothe.

4. God won't ask what your highest salary was.
- He'll ask if you compromised your character to obtain it.

5. God won't ask what your job title was.
- He'll ask if you performed your job to the best of our ability.

6. God won't ask how many friends you had.
- He'll ask how many people to whom you were a friend.

7. God won't ask in what neighborhood you lived.
- He'll ask how you treated your neighbors.

8. God won't ask about the color of your skin.
- He'll ask about the content of your character.

9. God won't ask why it took you so long to seek Salvation.
- He'll lovingly take you to your mansion in heaven, and not to the gates of Hell.

10. God won't ask how many people you shared this with.
- He'll ask if you were ashamed to post this in your blog.

(Would He really care if you won't post this on your blog? I don't think so. What He really wants from us is to believe in Him always. And I already did.)


Geez. Too many things to do...

We practiced aerobic dancing the whole day in Nini's house. Grabe! Kapagod.

Then, tomorrow we still need to buy costume for the dance. Kasama rin kasi sa pagbabasehan ang costume namin for Finals sa P.E.

Actually, I'm still confused with some of the steps. Nakakalito talaga promise. Gumawa kasi uli kami ng bago. If you read my post ( i dunno when i posted it), you will know that Ms. Aquino, our P.E. instructress, gave us so many negative comments that we decided to create another dance steps.

Ang song na ginamit namin ngayon is Smooth Criminal. Pero no'ng una Pon de Replay. Frankly, I enjoyed the steps in Smooth Criminal than the latter. Pero mahirap i-execute pag sinabay na sa music. Aaaaahh.. *frowns*

Then, I still need to memorize my chosen declamation piece. Ngekz. How could I do that? Eh ngayon pa lang ako magre-research for a good piece.

Baka mga tomorrow na lang. Ngayon na lang ako gagawa ng assignment for Logic, mag-aaral for our quizzes sa Chem Lab and Algebra, gagawa ng reviewer sa Chem Lec and Gen Psych. (lapit na Finals namin, guys), gagawa ng reflection paper about sexual harassment for CWTS...

Aaaaaaahhhhhh... tomorrow na lang iyong iba. Sobrang dami ng gagawin, tinatamad na akong i-type iyong ibang activities for this whole week. Good luck na lang sakin.

Goodnight guys! **hugs**


I'll be busy for the next few days...

Yep. You read it right.

Tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, PAASCU representatives will visit our school, Manila Doctor's College. (so??)

Kasi naman hassle, masyadong maraming pinagagawa (e.g. activities) porke't may mga visitors ang school. *frowns*

Another thing, gagawa uli kami ng mga new steps for our aerobic dancing since ang comment ni Ms. Aquino, our P.E. teacher, ay: "This is aerobics, hindi modern dance." (Pero diba dance rin naman ang aerobics??)

Arrggh. Tuloy, instead of focusing na lang sa pagbili ng costume namin this coming saturday, magpa-practice pa uli kami. We still need to add some more vigorous steps, at eto pa... kailangan warm-up exercises ang intro. San kpa??

Shoongakz noh?

Wow! Sembreak is coming. Yipeeeeeeeee...

I can't wait. Hehe.. :)

Anyway, magkakaroon kami ng declamation sa room this Monday. Graded recitation na namin for Finals. As usual, with costume.

Ahm... favor? Could you suggest a good declamation piece? Since for our Filipino class iyon, kailangan Tagalog. Ano ba maganda?

Pwedeng pae-mail na lang sa akin? Puh-leaze.



Nobody's business!!

I just realized I wanted to be myself.

Bakit ako magpapakahirap mag-isip minsan ng mga terms in English when in fact, pwede ko namang sabihin iyon in Tagalog?

To all those people na makikitid ang utak: I just wanted to clear some things...

This blog is mine. Kung mali ang mga grammar ko, problema ko na iyon. Kung mali pati spelling, katangahan ko. Ganon lang iyon. Kung ayaw nila ng mga entries ko... Kung ayaw nila ng layout... Kung ayaw nila ng color purple... Kung ayaw nila ng mga pics na ibinabandera ko raw (their vocabulary) dito sa blog... Kung ayaw nila sakin (as simple as that)...

Then malaya silang pindutin ang [x] which is located in the upper right corner of this screen. Geez. Can you feel the hate?
Why are there so many people who complain about the entries of another person? If anyone wants to comment, then feel free to comment.

Pero sana before commenting, makiramdam naman. Think of what that person could feel after reading that comment. Minsan kasi "ouch" na ang dating.

Anyway, siguro nga sa mga pinagsasabi ko kanina. Only four words could explain it:
I'm not yet prepared.

Siguro nga hindi pa talaga ako handa sa mga taong nakikibisita lang sa blog ng may blog ay puro paninira na ang ginagawa.

They would just, you know, judge the person first without knowing who that person really is. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. Bakit kaya hindi muna nila kilalanin ang isa tao di ba?


5 latest updates about me...

1. I found a new friend online. One who wouldn't just IM you for five minutes of satisfaction (from his vocabulary). He's Nick from California. The only guy who could make me laugh big time. LOL!!

2. Sir Santana, our Algeb Prof., chose me & Nini for the quiz bee. (Couldn't believe it! I'm not really that good at Math. Good luck to me.)

3. I'm loving calamansi juice right now because I have singaw. Feck. I really need to have lots of Vitamin C.

4. I'm a self-confessed loner every midterm/finals week. And since Finals is coming, i gotta hibernate. I think it's two weeks from now. Gerdammit, really.

5. I'm so happy coz old friends are showing up. Be it on mail, friendster or YM. Oh. Missed them all so much.

Hey, I really need to end this post right now. It's already 8:35 here & my class starts at 10 am. I'm still not prepared.


Just wanted to post this...

I don't know about you. But I was pretty amused when I read it on friendster. So I decided to just post it in here.

lol... ;)

Got nothing else to share right now.

I'm too lazy to type. Again. Till next time! *hugs*


All I wanna do right now is to sleep...

And I assure you that the minute I finished posting this... I'm off to bed.

Lol... ;)

It's been a tiring day.

Woke up at 5:30 am. (And to think I slept for more than 3 hours only.) Ate breakfast. Brushed my teeth. Prepared my uniform. Took a bath. Got dressed. Kissed my mom goodbye. Then, I'm out at 6:20 am. Pretty quick, isn't it?

Geez. The same old routine every Monday and Wednesday morning. Feck.

I studied activity 15 & 16 inside the FX coz we have a short quiz on Chem Lab. Good thing, I managed to memorize the activity series quickly. (Being in rush is sometimes better).

But then, I think I'm not in the mood to share my day today... wahaha... ;)

Maybe next time. Goodnight!



Inside the bus: (Left to right) Front: Thal, Jecha, me and Jan Mike. Back: Rob, Angel and Nikki.

Whew! I missed the company of my friends.


Random thoughts of the day

Right at this very moment, I should be on my way home, commuting.

Instead, here I am. Believe it or not, I 'm in front of the monitor for almost twelve hours straight. I got annoyed. And annoyed. And annoyed. And haven't I told you I got annoyed??

And it's all because of a collage I wanted to upload on my template. Arrrgggh. I resized it. And it remained the same. I resized again and again. Still the same. Resized it so many times until it became so small, I couldn't even see the text.

How pathetic. I'm so freakin' pissed. Really.

Oh. Change topic. Anyway, before you think of things which has a connection with the term lazy. As in L-A-Z-Y...

FYI, there was flood near SM Sucat. (so?) Gerdammit.

As I was having second thoughts of going to school... (Actually, I never wanted to go to school during a bad weather but the additional points I could get in the Finals exam for our Algebra class keeps me thinking! Feck.) The president of our class sent me an SMS (thank God). Here it goes:

"Classmates, ds is d offcial announcmnt as of 10:07 am accrding 2 MDC. Der wil b classes l8r. *sad* But (tke note) if ur location is floodd, partcularly pque, u hav 2 options 2 chuz from. Eithr u wil atend d class or not. If u chuz not 2 atend d class its also ok coz MDC said dat 8s a valid rison due 2 natural clamities. U wil b xcused on the subjects 4 dz day. But if u chuz 2 atend d class, its also ok. Actually, better. At least, ul clearly understnd d topics evn mor."

The very second I read it, I was smiling from ear to ear. Wahahaha... Thank God talaga!


Due to Thal's insistent request to see our pics from Tagaytay just this Tuesday, you'll get to see more of me. Wahaha... As if I'm that important. ASA!

Before the bus turned left, I caught a glimpse of the sign People's Park. I immediately thought that time was just a field trip, and not a recollection. You see, for me, field trips are more fun than the latter.

The bus stopped the minute it turned left. Some of us went out of the bus to take some pics.

We took pictures every chance we could get. But I think I'll post some of it tomorrow. I'm not in the mood right now.

As I was surfing the net, I stumbled upon Instant Blog Post Generator of Flooble.

"You know how sometimes you feel like you haven't posted anything to your blog for a while, and you should really get around to doing it, but there's nothing to really write about? Now, with just one click of a button, you can have a ready-to-post entry for your blog."


Today my friend and I were writing an essay about the weather in today's cut-throat corporate world. We were very fascinated by the subject, so we started telling my friend Miguel about it, and he answered:

"Damn!.. Whoa! Don't tell me you're into today's cut-throat corporate world too!"

But then when my friend and I got to the part about the the weather, Miguel suddenly got this dangerous look in his eyes. But the next day, Miguel's brother told me that the reason Miguel was so freaked out was because he had to study the weather in class. Occasionally Miguel can be quite unpredictable like that, but I need to make this work...

LOL... Who would ever use that?? So stupid.

It sucks, you know..

When I don't have the time to think of something to post, I'll just leave it as it is. I'll go on hiatus or something until I get the pieces of my mind back. *grins*

At least if a real classmate happened to drop by, I wouldn't be asked: "Airah, I didn't know we had an assignment about corporate world. What subject was that?"

Lol... And to think that the course I'm taking up right now is nursing.


Yeah right

Actually, I was about to blog about what happened yesterday. (I didn't have the chance to post a new entry last night because I was dead tired from the recollection.)

But photobucket is NOT working really well, so right now... I'm having a really hard time uploading the pictures.

Anyway, I'll just share it with you tomorrow if I still have time.


I feel sleepy... *yawns*

And I still need to prepare my things for tomorrow. We'll be going to Villa Luisa, Tagaytay City for the recollection.

Geez...! I can't wait to see the wonderful sights in Tagaytay again. Like the Taal Volcano. I'm so freakin' tired... Wahaha... As always. (geez. sorry for the crappy photo. I'm really not talented at taking pictures.)

Anyway, yesterday, I was a part of Alay-Lakad. After the activity... me, with the rest of the freshman students of Manila Doctor's College, looked wasted. [lol....]

Seriously though, I was excited at first. But the moment I felt the sharp rays of sunshine, I realized it's not really something to be excited about. It was kinda boring. Even the games after the activity was also boring.

Good thing, the activities did not last too long. Soon, we found ourselves in SM Sucat. Wahaha... Me, Thal, Jecha, Mae, Madz and Nini.

Me and Madz ordered food in Pinoy Toppings for lunch. (We are really starving, you know.) The rest bought their food in McDonald's.

Since all of us wanted to save time, we decided to eat our foods inside the theater. All of us except Nini watched Red Eye while she went solo flight to watch The Brothers Grimm.

Only few minutes after seating, I felt really annoyed. After the whole movie, we still can't figure out the fact why it was entitled Red Eye. Actually, correct me if I was wrong but I think it was only mentioned once.

Frankly, it was really disappointing. In its trailer, it looks as though there was some monster inside the plane & I was actually expecting for it. But I only found myself watching the same setting for more than half an hour... The man is so pathetic while always repeating that he is able to kill Rachel's father (told ya... I didn't even know their names in the movie).

We actually went out thinking our eighty pesos only went to waste. That's why I was so glad when I saw my little brother, Tita Myrah and Tito Oseph in front of Watson's, first floor.

Since my friends were all going home, I told them I'll stay with my Tito & Tita. Good choice since they wanted to watch The Brothers Grimm.

For the second time that day, I entered the moviehouse again. (Nakalibre ako ng panood sa sine.)

And today... we just had:

A laboratory activity for Chem Lab.

A boring time in our Chem Lec period.

And ahm... a not-really-that-boring-but-still-boring time in our Filipino class.

Fortunately, Sir Flores dismissed us one hour before the real dismissal time. Good thing, there was a strike among the transportation groups. *smiles happily*
