Let's talk about sex: Sex Education

This song is dedicated to , Ching, JC Smith, Grifter and Manilenya. I would encourage the readers to please listen to the song while reading the rest of my story.



My sister sent me a message as soon as she saw me online. She said that their home PC's desktop had some anime... porn anime! I don't know if it's hentai or not. Apparently she was flabbergasted by the discovery and the fact that her eldest son wouldn't admit to downloading the porn. I was grinning while she was telling me the story. I told her, "well, he's a warm blooded boy!" I guess this made her think a bit and she said, "At least he's not gay. I told hubby to take it easy on him. It's just normal diba?" Of course.

I wasn't surprised if my sister and her husband's initial reactions were shock and distress, I would think all parents would have the same reaction. Parents need to have the right perspective on this kind of situation. We all went to through this stage of sexual curiosity, probably not all of us but most of us at this stage of puberty started to wonder, to look around and discover things that amazed us. Do you remember the time you saw nude pictures of the opposite sex or the first time you read a porn magazine? If you remember that time and remember how it felt, then you should know how your kid feels now. You need to understand and accept that sexual curiosity is normal.

Parents should discuss sex with their children by the onset of puberty and parent's should discuss this topic sensibly and with some level of accuracy of facts. Giving teenagers the wrong idea or information may screw up their kid's psyche.
When I was in 4th year high school, I used to hang out with 4 girls from my batch but from different sections. One of my barkada had a bf, she was the only one in our group to have one. Anyway, one day she appeared a bit uneasy and troubled. We asked her what was bugging her, she said she is in trouble because she may be pregnant. We were all shocked! Pregnant at 16 and weeks away from graduation. We asked her how it happened. She said that one night, her mom went to bed early. Her bf went to their house to spend time with her. They talked and talked till it reached to a point that the guy kissed her. Then we asked her what happened next, she said that was it, they just kissed and now she could be pregnant. We all laughed at her story. We told her that no one gets pregnant by kissing. She said her mother told her that if a man kissed a woman, the woman will get pregnant. We laughed even harder at this story. We insisted that her mother's story is not true. I asked her how she passed 2nd year Biology class without knowing anything about reproduction. She said she knows text book information on reproduction but it seemed all just rote knowledge. We asked her if she did some torrid lip locking with her bf, she said it was just a peck on the cheek. We assured her that she wasn't pregnant at all and she can graduate and go on with her life. A classic! The story is funny but I learned a few years ago that some parents really tell their kids (girls) that kissing can make them pregnant. Akala ko joke, totoo pala!

But what if my friend didn't open up to us about her "dilemma" and she just assumed that she's pregnant, what would she have done? Her mother is known for her controlling and dominating nature, kinda having a closedmind and probinsya mentality. I'm pretty sure my friend was seriously worried that time. Would she have told her mother? Would she have asked her bf to marry her or elope with her? Would she have killed herself? She would probably have gotten married at an early age. I think her family would have immediately assumed she's really pregnant, no questions asked. This is how parents screw their kids' minds.

Another funny story I heard from my cousin is that of her married friends' sex life, or no sex life for that matter. She has this couple friends who attend the same religious organization with her, they are laking Manila and studied in good schools here. They were complaining that they could not get pregnant. So my cousin who is a doctor, asked them questions and she discovered that they were not having sex often. Kaya naman pala! How can they get pregnant if they have sex once a month? I'm not sure if I remember her story right but I think the couple's idea of sex is strictly for pro-creation and having sex for any other purpose is WRONG. Bwahahaha! I think she tried to explain to her friends that sex is a good thing for married couples and that they need to have frequent sex inorder to increase their chances of getting pregnant but they seemed closed minded. This is how religion screws up people's minds.

This reminds me of how some sectors of society blocked the ruling on having sex education in public schools. I think that schools can be a good venue for students to learn sex. Hopefully, schools can provide an objective and clean approach to teaching sex. HOPEFULLY. Of course, it's still best practice to have the parents talk to their kids about sex, that is if the parents do not give false information or try to scare their kids from having sex at all. Besides, a lot of parents do not feel comfortable discussing sex with their kids. I certainly do not agree that the church or any organized form or religion should start campaigning about the dangers of sex and all that churkiness.

Good luck!

All I Want is You by U2

This U2 song is significant to someone I know. Have fun singing along.



You say you want
Diamonds on a ring of gold
You say you want
Your story to remain untold

But all the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say youll give me
A highway with no one on it
Treasure just to look upon it
All the riches in the night

You say youll give me
Eyes in a moon of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest
But all the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you want
Your love to work out right
To last with me through the night

You say you want
Diamonds on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold
Your love not to grow cold

All the promises we break
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You...all I want is...
You...all I want is...
You...all I want is...
You...

December 2

I've been getting a lot of advance birthday greetings from bloggers. Sa December 2 pa birthday ko. Puwede nyo pa ako i-greet ulit. Hehehe.

Austin Pinoy, Grifter, Buraot, and Pmonchet, thanks for the greetings. Pati kayo, you call me mommy! Waaaahhh!!

When my former co-workers would ask me how my kids are and I would tell them I do not have kids, they would give me that puzzled look. Then they would ask me about my husband, I would tell them I'm not married, they'd go "HA?" I would have to go to great lengths to explain to them why I am called mommy. Parang kelangan ko i-justify ang pag tawag sa akin ng mommy, kahit na hindi ko naman ito pakana.

*kamot ulo*

Ate ng Bayan

I described myself (on my blogger profile) as Ate ng Bayan. This was true when I was in my late twenties', till mid thirties. Everybody used to call me ate (big sister). Lately, people (esp in the call center industry) would call me mommy. Pak! I'm really OLD! People at the call center are half my age! Waaahhh!! Huhuhu!!

Well, I'm old na nga. I'm turing 40 in a few days.

I'm not celebrating my age.

Duhh!

Did you feel the earth move?

I felt the earth move. Not the song but literally. There was a mild earthquake here in the Philippines around 12:55PM. My neighbors did not feel it but a relative working in the port area felt it and she said it was strong. She called her mother immediately to confirm.
I somehow had a feeling we would be hit soon. Indonesia and Japan were hit recently so it was logical for the Philippines to get hit too.

In Praise of Older Women

I'm sure everyone who has an email account, has recieved this piece on older women that was supposedly written by Andy Rooney. It starts like this:

As I grow in age, I value women who are over 30/40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 30/40 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think...

This piece was actually written by Frank Kaiser and not Andy Rooney. The whole story can be found on Snopes.com under urban legends.

Below is the original piece written by Frank Kaiser:

One of the perks of dufferdom is an increased capacity to appreciate people. Friends. Spouses. And, for me, women. All women.

When I was 20, I had eyes only for girls my age. Any woman over 30 was ancient, over 40 invisible.

Today, at 71, I still appreciate the 20-year-old for her youthful looks, vigor, and (occasional) sweet innocence.

But I equally enjoy women of my own age and beyond, and every age in between. I've learned that each has its own special wonders, attractions, magic and beauty.

As I grow in age, I value mature ladies most of all. Here are just a few of the reasons senior men sing the praises of older women:

# An older woman knows how to smile with such brightness and truth, old men stagger.

# An older woman will never ask out of the blue, "What are you thinking?" An older woman doesn't care what you think.

# An older woman's been around long enough to know who she is, what she wants, and from whom. By the age of 50, few women are wishy-washy. About anything. Thank God!

# And yes, once you get past a wrinkle or two, an older woman is far sexier than her younger counterpart!

- Her libido's stronger.

- Her fear of pregnancy's gone.

- Her appreciation of experienced lovemaking is honed and reciprocal.

- And she's lived long enough to know how to please a man in ways her daughter could never dream of. (Young men, you have something to look forward to!)

# Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off that you are a jerk if you're acting like one. A young woman will say nothing, fearing that you might think worse of her. An older woman doesn't give a damn.

# An older, single woman usually has had her fill of "meaningful relationships" and "long-term commitments." Can't relate? Can't commit? She could care less. The last thing she needs in her life is another whiny, dependent lover!

# Older women are sublime. They seldom contemplate having a shouting match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive dinner. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.

# Most older women cook well. They care about cleanliness. They're generous with praise, often undeserved.

# An older woman has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A young woman often snarls with distrust when "her guy" is with other women. Older women couldn't care less.

# Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to an older woman. Like your mother, they always know.

Yes, we geezers praise older women for a multitude of reasons. These are but a few.

Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal.

For every stunning, smart, well-coifed babe of 75 there's a bald, paunchy relic with his yellow pants belted at his armpits making a fool of himself with some 22-year-old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize for my fellow geezers. That men are genetically inferior is no secret. Count your blessings that we die off at a far younger age, leaving you the best part of your lives to enjoy and appreciate the exquisite woman you've become. Without the distraction of some demanding old fart clinging and whining his way into your serenity.

Every Breath You Take lyrics




Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you.
Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you.
Oh can't you see
You belong to me?
How my poor heart aches with every step you take.
Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you.
Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace.
I dream at night, I can only see your face.
I look around but it's you I can't replace.
I keep crying baby, baby please..................
Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you.
Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you.......

Belle de Jour: Diary of a London Call Girl

Basapa featured the story of the London call girl's blog that was turned into a TV series. First, it was turned into a book and now it's a TV series.

Her story is quite fascinating. She's smart and witty, she's definitely no bimbo. She shows that there is definitely an art in becoming a commercial sex worker or prostitute. She has mastered the science of giving pleasure to her clients. I enjoyed watching the eposides featured on Basapa's blog. I don't think this TV series will be aired here in the Philippines.

I can not imagine myself being a prositute. But I have always imagined myself as the character of Stephanie. Hehehe.

I think Billie Piper is hot!

For hire: Masseur for massage and more! Part 3



This last part is dedicated to the following readers: An, Watson, Austin Pinoy, Grifter, Buraot, Philippine Updates, Char, MommyBa, Pearljem, Mari.

As much as I would want to tell this story as accurately as possible, I can't because I have forgotten certain details. Tagal na kasi nito, 7 years ago pa yata.

Going back to the story...

I called my friend Terry at home. She told me that she finally met up with RC. Of course I wanted details.


Terry: Mare nagkita na kami ni RC.

Me: So ano itsura.

Terry: Ok naman. May pagka tisoy, maganda katawan, may itsura.

She wasn't raving about his looks so I assumed di nya type.

Me: Ano nangyari?

Terry: Well, nagkausap muna kami, we made arrangements. I told him interested ako sa massage. Sabi nya bigyan nya ako ng freebie. He also mentioned that there will be no sexual intercourse unless I want to, oral sex lang daw kung yon lang gusto ko. Then he said that he meets up with a regular at a motel and that I could go there once she leaves. So ganon nga nangyari. He called me to say punta na ako. Nag taxi na ako papunta don. I went to his room. Pagpasok ko we introduced each other. Then he asked me if I want his massage already, syempre umoo ako. I removed my clothes so he could massage me.

Me: Ok ba mag massage? Masarap ba?

Terry: Uhm, puwede na. Anyway, minasahe nya katawan ko. Maya-maya di nakatiis ang lolo mo, binona-bona ako! Hahahaha!

Me: Binona-bona ka? Ano yon?

Terry: Bona, yung dyug.

Sexual intercourse, coitus.

Me: Hahahaha! Hindi nakatiis ang loko! Siguro na L sa iyo!

Terry: Ano pa? Kunyari pa syang giving pleasure lang to a woman eh tinatablan din pala sya!

Me: Hahahaha! So nag cum ka ba?

Terry: Hindi.

Me: Hindi?

Terry: Teka let me finish my story.

Me: Ok:

Terry: Nagtaka ako bigla nya ako binonabona. Siguro nga tinablan sya. So nung natapos na sya nag rest muna kami sandali. After resting for a few minutes, he asked me if I could trust him. I asked him what he was going to do sabi nya he will not hurt or harm me. So I told him that I feel I can trust him. When I said that, he tied my hands up so I could not do anything then he went down on me. Ayun, kinain nya ako. After sometime, na feel ko iba. I told him to stop. Hindi sya huminto. Hindi ko naman sya puwedeng itulak kasi nakatali ang kamay ko.

Me: Ha?

Terry: Sigaw na ako ng sigaw, "Teka lang... Teka lang... Hinto mo! Hinto mo! Naiihi ako! NAIIHI AKO!!!" Namimilipit na ako kasi ihing-ihi na ako, natatakot ako baka maihian ko sya.

Me: Did he stop? Naihi ka?

Terry: He stopped briefly, sabi nya I should not worry, just let go la
ng daw ako. Then he went back to eating me. Syempre sigaw na naman ako sabi ko, "Naiihi ako! Teka lang! NAIIHI AKO! NAIIHI AKooooo...."

Ayun! Feeling ko naihi ako! Ganon pala yon. He explained to me hindi ihi yon kungdi female ejaculate. Ibang klase!

Me: Was it good?

Terry: In fairness mare, magaling sya. Panalo!

Me: Wow! So masusundan ba uli yan?

Terry: Ewan ko. Mag uusap muna kami.

I thought she would have to pay for the next session. Free lang kasi yung una. Pero bilib ako, nagawa nya na mapa ejaculate ang mare ko! I think that's what they call squirting. I remember reading something like this from Dr. Margie Holmes' column ages ago about squirting, something comes out of the
Bartholin Glands daw. This is kinda rare because not all women are capable of squirting and not all men know how to make a woman squirt. Heck, not all men know how to go down on a woman!

Months later, I was in Palawan when I got a call from Terry. RC has requested that I join then, 3some daw. I told her I'm not into 3somes, di ko type. I said I would be willing to watch or take pictures but I'll not participate. She said she would relay the message. She never texted nor called me about this.

Later on, RC texted me. I called him and he thanked me for referring him to Terry. And as usual, he tried to do everything he could to convince me to give him a try. I turned him down. Ask na naman sya for referrals so I said I'll just post and ad for him so he could get more customers. He was grateful.

Months later I got a text from him. He said the ad I posted for him gave him more customers. I said I was glad I was able to help him. He asked if I could post another ad for him but I told him he should do it himself, that I'm not his pimp. He begged me to do it for him for the sake of friendship. I stopped responding. Ano sya sinusuwerte?



Moral of the story: Umihi muna before you do the deed so when you feel like naiihi, you know it's something else!

For hire: Masseur for massage and more! Part 2

Sorry guys, been busy with work lately. Nadiskaril ang aking story.

Thanks to Austin Pinoy, JC, Sidney, Liz, An, Harold, Cathycardia, Char, Basapa. I can't find Sidney's URL.

Pasensya na kayo sa grammar ko. I'm typing my store half awake. I'm really tired and sleepy but I want to add something to this before the week ends.


Going back to the story....


I told him his price is too much. I mentioned I could get a good massage for a fraction of his price. Sabi nya magaling ba sa oral sex yung masahista ko? Tadew ito!


He then said makakamura raw ako if he did the service at my place kasi nga he usually does his service to women in motels. If he "serviced" me at home, I would not have to pay for the use of a motel. He asked if I live alone, I told him I live with my parents and brother and cousins and lola and maid. Sabi niya this will not do kasi nga maraming tao.

During the course of our phone conversation, he spoke English most of the time. He had good conversation, skills mind you. He was well mannered and did not talk about sex in a sleazy manner. This is probably the reason why I got interested in what he had to say and asked him a lot of questions.

I asked him how he got to doing his service. He said that when he was younger, he had a lady boss who took him in as some sort of personal assistant. I can't remember some of the details of his boss but I remember she was kinda dominant. One day, RC and the boss had to do some over time work on a Saturday. They both got tired from all the work they did that day so decided to rest. While resting, she asked RC to massage her feet. Being the gentleman that he is, he massaged his boss' feet. I'm not sure how often this massaging-the-feet-after-work happened because eventually, the feet massaging turned into cunnilingus servicing. I think she gave him some token for her appreciating of job well done. Sasabihin ko sana a blow job well done kaso di yata tama. Hehehe. From then on, he realized how he can make extra money by giving women oral pleasure and intercourse.

Finally, he offered to give me a freebie. Sabi ko that's generous of him but the motel room is still a problem for me.

After all that story telling a churky, we finally ended the conversation. We exchanged mobile numbers and I told him I'll think about his offer.

Days later, nagkita na naman kami sa chatroom. Ang ending, nagtelebabad uli kami. As usual, he did everything to convince me to try his "wares" but I told him I'd rather not. I told him I could not possibly afford his service because I had no stable job then. Imagine, his fee plust the motel fee?? Grabe. Then he offered again a freebie. I declined. Then he said if the motel is still an issue then he said he could accomodate me right after one of his services. Yung isa raw nyang client, after their session, would usually leave at once and leave the room all to himself. He said I could go there once his client leaves. Told him still not interested. I just wanted to hear stories from him. Finally nag give up na rin si kolokoy. He said I might know someone who could be interested in his services, refer ko na lang daw sya. I said, "Surely!" End of phone conversation.

After the conversation, I remembered this friend of mine who is really adventurous. Let's call her Terry. Terry has a no non-sense approach to sex, she wants pleasure. I told her about RC and she got curious. I gave her RC's number and she said she will talk to him first and then see what will happen next.

A week had passed, Terry said she spoke with him. She made a comment about what he said na he just loves giving oral pleasure to women and getting paid is just an extra, baka raw front lang nya yon at baka sholbam sya talaga. Sabi ko I have no idea. RC confirmed to me that he and Terry had spoken and he thanked me for the referral. I said he was welcome.

Another week had passed, no word from either.

After 1 week more, I got a text message from Terry. She asked me to call her.

May nangyari kaya?

Abangan!!

For hire: Masseur for massage and more!

Some 10 or so years ago, my family was desperate for a masseur or a male masahista. I remembered seeing a few ads on Buy and Sell for a masahista. This was how we met our former visually challenged masahista Ferdie. When Ferdie became busy with his group, he stopped visiting us. Because of my family's dire need to find another masahista, I browsed through the ads again. I saw a whole bunch of ads saying the masseur is handsome, macho, mestizo, etc. I thought to myself, why would these men mention their looks when all they need to mention is the quality of the masahe or massage that they could give. I expected to see something like: Strong, certified masseur, knows reflexology, swedish and thai. I found 1 ad in 30 that had this kind of spiel kaso taga south naman.


Around 1999 0r 2000, I had come across a chatter whose nick mentioned that he's a masseur. He initiated a conversation with me. Being the curious cat that I am, syempre I asked a lot of questions till he eventually gave me his landline number so we could just continue the conversation over the phone.


Let's call this guy RC. He was respectful and seemed educated. He spoke good English and was a good conversationalist. To some women he probably sounded macho or sexy but I didn't like his voice, it came across as "modulated". RC said that his service costs P1,000. Huwaaat?! I told him his price is steep for a friggin' massage. So he mentioned is qualifications to justify is price:

1. He is tall - as if his height would make a difference.


2. He is tisoy - ahh... ok...


3. He is smart and speaks well - I guess he would need talk about the economic situation of the Philippines while massaging his client.


4. He's well hung - Huh?


5. He gives great oral sex - Whoaaaaaaa!!




His list of qualifications floored me. I asked him if he's a man-whore, he said he isn't. He said really gives good massages and cunnilingus would just be an option.




To be continued!

Bad sleeping 'doubles heart risk'



I saw this news bit on BBC News. I says there that people who have too much or too little or disrupted sleep are linked a to doubled risk of a fatal cardiovascular disease.

Hmmm... No wonder my health has gotten worse lately.

The news article said:

Researcher Professor Francesco Cappuccio said: "Fewer hours sleep and greater levels of sleep disturbance have become widespread in industrialised societies.

"This change, largely the result of sleep curtailment to create more time for leisure and shift-work, has meant that reports of fatigue, tiredness and excessive daytime sleepiness are more common than a few decades ago.

"Sleep represents the daily process of physiological restitution and recovery, and lack of sleep has far-reaching effects."

Curiously, the researchers also found that those individuals who increased their sleep to eight hours or more a night were more than twice as likely to die during the period of the study as those who had not changed their habit.

Professor Cappuccio said lack of sleep had been linked to an increased risk of weight gain, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.

However, he said the link between too much sleep and poor health was less clear, although he suggested that staying in bed for prolonged periods could be a sign of depression, or, in some cases, cancer-related fatigue.

"Our findings indicate that consistently sleeping around seven hours per night is optimal for health and a sustained reduction may predispose to ill-health."


This news article is interesting to me because of what I have gone through lately and still going through somehow. I knew that my blood pressure problem is related to my sleep problem. I also had a feeling that my weight gain is due to stress, which is also affecting my sleep.

People in the call center industry should be strongly aware of this. There are certain centers that change schedules as often as every week. They should re-consider fixing schedules. These centers will someday be in serious trouble if they don't.

ARGH!

I am so stressed and confused that I have nodules in/around my neck that would not go away! I have had this sore throat that bothers me on and off.

Ayaw ko na mag call center. I would rather be a janitress and clean an entire building right now. It's not that working for a call center is bad or not good enough for me, it's just that I would rather do manual labor right now and not use my brain anymore, or what's left of it. Hehehe.

Haayyy...

Rain

It rained quite hard and for a long time very early this morning, more like dawn. 3 hours non stop?

Heaven must have been crying with someone out there, hard and long, non stop mouring.

Tears are supposed to show sadness or grief. Too much rain can be a source of grief or sorrow. But then tears, just like rain, can also be for cleansing and healing.

May the tears there were shed be a source of cleansing and healing.



"Cry if you have to and let the tears wash away the bitterness that you feel. Look back and smile for somewhere in the past, love has found a home in your heart. Life doesn't end where our heartaches begin. It only ends when we give up on ourselves and the love that we have in our hearts."


"In love, some people think that it's holding on that makes us strong; but sometimes it's letting go. Goodbye may seem a lot more Hello's... and so we have to let go and we should know when to finally end up a chapter in our life to be able to give way for a new one."

Sex is a popular topic

Whenever I check my site stats courtesy of Stats4You.com, I see that most of the hits I get come from Philippines 4 Men website. The next most significant referers would be Google and BasangPanaginip.


It is understandable why I get a lot of hits coming from Philippines 4 Men and BasangPanaginip, the readers of these blogs probably think I'm sexy or I have a lot of topics on sex on my blog. I guess they must be disappointed. Hehehe.

What is kinda remarkable is the hits I get from Google. When I check the search strings, most would be about "pinay porn star" or anything sex related. Churky!

Sex really sells huh? Even a friend of mine asked me to write something about sex again. I want to but I haven't been in the right frame of mind for quite sometime. I have lots of stories to share but I still have to find the right words for my story.

I am thinking of making 2 more series of Sex and Consequence and something about a male sex worker.

O devah! Ideas pa lang exciting na!

I think I need to change my template/skin once again kasi di na bagay ang current theme ko sa mga magiging topics ko. Hehehe.

More blogs and a kinky post

I haven't been feeling up to posting anything interesting lately. I have ideas, lots of them but I just do not have the drive to start writing once I'm infront of my pc.

I have an idea about another sex and consequence churky but I'm still feeling low, too low to start it.

After I quit work, I tried my best go visit all the blogs on my list and have added a few more. Some of you may wanna visit these blogs:

My sister's blog
Buge's blog
Jego's blog

Buge and Jego are my friends from way back. My sister is, well, my siser of course. Hehehe.


Jego's latest post is most interesting. I wouldn't be surprised if he would one day show himself to us in tight fitting leather pants and shirt with his big bike. Hehehe.

It's Over

A few days ago, I really felt so stressed that I finally quit my job.

Nanghihinayang ako.

I would have stayed on if the account hadn't been pulled out from the company. I would have stayed on if I was prepared to tackle software/email issues. I would have stayed on if I didn't need to take care of my health. I would have stayed on if I didn't have to need to fix my papers so I could "leave" ASAP.

Nanghihinayang ako.

Sayang ang 5 months ko sa company. Sayang yung pagiwan ko sa mga kasamahan ko sa trabaho, napaka babait nila. Sayang ang relations ko with the manangers (team and operations), mabait din sila, lahat sila. We were given some leeway on the floor due to the nature of our work. We were allowed to have a snack while working because we could not take our breaks on time when were have a lot of emails to work on. We were allowed to work on our own, they did not monitor us all the time. They trusted us, they knew we were responsible enough to do our work without supervision and we did just that.

I was touched by 2 people's gestures when I finally decided to quit. They talked to me and tried to talk me out of quitting. I didn't think they would even bother to talk to me but they did. Unfortunately, some things were out of their hands, they could not change some of the rules/policies to accomodate me. Ok lang, I am happy knowing my presence meant something to them.

I got an email from my former big boss. I was touched by his words. He is cool. He is just misunderstood at times.

Ssayang talaga... I feel like Claire Dela Fuente singing that song... Next song would be Diana Ross's Do you know where you're going to...

Haaayyy....

THE!! (duh)

My cousin Jo sent this to me. This originally came from Brian Anthony B. Enriquez.
This looks like a compilation of (in)famous lines.
Please read on.



THE!


Part 1


We' ve been friends for a long time ago. We come from the same alma mother. Actually, our paths crossed one time on another. But it's only now that I gave him a second look. I realized that beauty is in the eyes. The pulpbits of my heart went fast, really fast. Cute pala siya. And then, he came over with me. He said, "I hope you don't mine. Can I get your number?" Nag-worry ako. What if he doesn't give it back? He explained naman na it's so we could keep intact daw. Sabi ko, connect me if i'm wrong but are you asking me ouch? Nabigla siya. Sagot niya, The!

Aba! Parang siya pa ang galit! Persona ingrata!!! Ang kapal niya! I cried buckles of tears.

Na-guilty yata siya. Sabi niya, isipin mo na lang na this is a blessing in the sky. Irregardless daw of his feelings, we'll go ouch na rin. Now, we're so in love. Mute and epidemic na ang past. Thanks God we swallowed our fried. Kasi, I'm 33 na and I'm running our time. After 2 weeks, he plopped the question. "Will you marriage me?" I'm in a state of shocked. Kasi mantakin mo, when it rains, it's four! This is true good to be true. So siyempre, I said yes. Love is a many splendor.

Pero nung inaayos ko na ang aming kasal, everything swell to pieces. Nag-di-dinner kami noon nang biglang sa harap ng aming table, may babaeng humirit ng, "Well, well, well. Look do we have here." What the fuss! The nerd ng babaeng yon! She said they were still on. So I told her, whatever is that, cut me some slacks! I didn't want this to get our hand kaya I had to sip it in the bud. She accused me of steeling her boyfriend. Ats if! I don't want to portrait the role of the other woman. Gosh, tell me to the marines! I told her, "please, mine you own business!" Who would believe her anyway?

Dahil it's not my problem anymore but her problem anymore, tumigil na rin siya ng panggugulo. Everything is coming up daisies. I'm so happy. Even my boyfriend said liketwice. He's so supportive. Sabi niya, "Look at is this way. She's our of our lives."

Kaya advise ko sa inyo - take the risk. You can never can tell. Just burn the bridge when you get there. Life is shorts. If you make a mistake, we'll just pray for the internal and external repose of your soul. I second emotion.





PART 2



I thought Jay's ex-girlfriend was really out of our lives. But heaven only goes that I was wrong. Kakakasal pa lang namin nun when Jay received a uninamous text. "Meet me at the clinic." I had a stinking feeling in my butt. I told him not to go. It might in danger him. Pero sabi niya, ok lang daw because life is what we make. Tumahimik lang ako. Sabi niya, "Penny for you talks." But I didn't know what to say.

Beggars can't be losers. Isa pa, worried talaga ako na baka yung girl yun. Jay said, "Can't got your tongue?" I tried to smile at him. Kahit di ako nagsalita, actions speak louder than works, di ba?

Be that as is may, umalis pa rin siya. I was out of the loophole.

After a few hours, I called him on his cellphone. But my calls fell on Jeff's ears. Lalo akong nag-worry kasi I didn't even know Jeff. Sabi na nga ba di na dapat umalis si Jay. That's what I'm talking about it.

So I tried calling some friends who will help me find Jay. That's what friends are for naman di ba? But I just faced a blank mall. I had to do this alone. Nag-taxi na lang ako. Pero ang mahal na pala ng plug down rate.

When I got to the clinic, the security was really buffed up. Di basta-basta makakapasok. So I said, "I beg your cordon. I'm patient. It's my favorite virtue nga e." Nagduda yata yung isang guard.

Hinawakan ako sa arm. The nerd! I shouted, "Don't touch me not!" Buti na lang the other guards were nice and said, "Come on, let's join us."

When I went inside, parang I've been there, done there. Nung walang nakatingin, nag-explore ako. Nakarating ako sa top floor and I had a bird's IQ of the clinic. I could not explain it but I was drawn to a room on the floor. Siguro Divine Intermission na yun.

Parang may narinig akong umuungol. I was thorn. Di ko alam kung aalis ba ako o papasukin ko. It made me stick in the stomach to think that Jay and his ex-girlfriend were there. I tried to tell myself to slower my expectations. But to tell with it! I had to strike while the iron is not. I had to hear the truth from the corpse's mouth. I barraged in. O my gas! Si Jay, naka-strap sa operating table, parang genie pig sa isang nakakatakot na experiment. He was on the cutting edge. He was bleeding. At ang doctor na nagpapahirap sa kanya, ang ex-girlfriend niya at ang bago nitong boyfriend, ang nurse na si Walter. Doon ko napatunayang blood is thicker than Walter.

Guess watch? Di ko alam kung paano ko nagawa pero I was able to search and rescue Jay. Siguro adrenaline brush na yun.

Now, he's recovering. Nag-sorry siya na hindi siya nakinig sa akin. I know it's a better pill to swallow your pride so it's forgive and forget me not. All swell that end swell. I know we should kiss and put on makeup.

Ang ex-girlfriend naman niya at si Walter, nakakulong na. Detention is really better than cure. So the moral of the lesson is: if symptoms persist, insult your doctor.

Useful Account Management Tips


I have been a tech support rep for quite sometime now and the top issue for any kind of online account is sign in issue. People forget passwords for most of their accounts like ISP or e-mail accounts. Can't blame these people, sa dami ba naman ng mga accounts nila online, mahihilo talaga sila sa pag manage nito.




One useful tip in managing any account is to set an alternate e-mail address for your account. E-mail accounts like Hotmail, Yahoo and Gmail has this option for account owners to set an alternate e-mail address for their Hotmail/Yahoo/Gmail accounts. Setting an alternate email address is useful in resettting your password, the alternate e-mail address will get the password reset instructions if and when you request for it. One time, my assh0le ex-churva tried to reset the password of my Gmail account. He did not know that Gmail would alert my alternate e-mail address if a password reset has been requested. I think he thought he would be able to access my Gmail by providing my personal information lang. Yahoo used to have this feature, dati you can reset the password just by supplying personal information and the answer to the secret question. Kaso I had set an alternate e-mail address that's why he was not prompted for the personal info and secret question. Bottom line nahuli ko sya trying to hack my account. Of course, he did not admit it but I knew it was him. Hehehe.



Some accounts like Hotmail provide you an alternative way of resetting your password by providing your location and the answer to your secret question. This is fine too but then if there's someone else who happens to know these information, patay ka.



Another tip: When trying to sign in to your account, if you get a password error message try not to sign in more than 2 times in less than 15 mins. If you make 3 failed attempts in 15 mins, moste likely you will be blocked from accessing your account. You will not be able to access your account at once and in sonce cases, if you make mutiple attempts (like 8 times in 30 mins), your acount will be locked. Once locked, you won't be able to access your account any more unless you go through tech support or some other proper channel. If your account is a paid subscription, chances are you can easily call tech support or customer service because you have this priviledge for phone support. If your account is for free, all you get is e-mail support and as we all know, most e-mail support for free accounts take a long time before someone responds to your query.



Dear reader, I strongly suggest you explore your account's settings and options so you can add an alternate e-mail address for your account. Also, try to check the support links for all your accounts, incase you may need to contact support. Good luck!

One thing I've learned from work

One thing I've learned from working for my current call center company is.....






the word





Churky/churkie.


Everyone here uses the word CHURKY in place of anything at all. Kinda like churva/chorva.
The account that I'm in is male dominated, only 1 gay guy. Imagine all these cigarette smoke reeking, beer lugging, cuss loving men talking and mentioning the word churky. Nakakatawa! Hahahaha!

"Tell the customer that he should sign in to his account using user@churky.com."

"Give steps from clearing cache and cookies, setting privacy and security to default, all the trouble shooting churkiness."

"Have you ever beem churkified?" = This came from bad ass Carlo.

Fat Rant

I saw this on Entertainment Tonight. Caught my attention so I went to YouTube to look for the Fat Rant Video.

I definitely can relate to her story.

"I'm fat, and it's ok. It doesn't mean I'm stupid, or ugly, or lazy, or selfish... I'm fat."

"I'm saying if you do those things, eat right and exercise and you're still not thin, you're life is not over!"





Get happy in the skin you're in!!!

Microsoft + Yahoo = MicroHoo

I saw in the news yesterday that there's an unconfirmed chismis about Microsoft and Yahoo merging to beat Google. I guess the chismis is right.

I didn't know Google has beaten those two!



Microhoo? Purchase of Yahoo by Microsoft Could Challenge Google's
Dominance

As Sites Jockey for Web Dominance, Such an Acquisition Would Give Google a
Run for Its Money

I saw a close friend while on the MRT train. Mae Nagtalon. It was a chance encounter, nakakatuwa. Everything snowballed from then on. We now have a Yahoo Group for UP Namnama Memebers in the 80's. Tama ba grammar? Hehehe.
I'm promoting our group. So far mga 6 na yata kami. I hope a fellow Namnaman sees this.

Popular Pinay Pornstar!

I watched Pinoy Meets World on GMA7 the other night. Miriam Quiambao featured Pinoys in the West Coast. One Filipino that was featured that really caught my attention was a popular Asian porn star, Mimi Miyagi.

Mimi Miyagi is actually Melody Damayo, born in Davao but grew up in California. She openly admitted on international tv (ehem) that she's not ashamed to admit what she does and who she is. She said that there are some Pinays in the porn industry but won't admit what they do for obvious reasons. Mimi said that in college, she had to get into this job for financial reasons and being a porn star helped her pay for her college tuition. Her family and relatives condemned her for her choice of work. Most of her relatives are either doctors, nurses, physical therapists, she called these occupations as Filipino occupations (hehehe) but she didn't want any typical occupation for herself. Apparently, she's not like anyone else or everyone else.

Watching her express herself that way makes me think that she's very smart and knows what she's doing. She looks clean and healthy, so I would think she's no junkie. She said that her daughter knows what she does and she's hoping her kid won't go into the same business as she has. Mimi said that's the reason why she's working very hard to provide her daughter with a better future financially so she wouldn't have to go into the porn industry herself.

She does all kinds of crazy things to get attention. She is running for office in Nevada as Governor. A Pinoy porn star governor of a US state? She's truly 100% Pinoy! Hehehe!

She even has a Wikipedia entry!


Childhood
Miyagi was born in Davao City, the Philippines on July 3, 1973, the second of four children to immigrant parents Mike Ariesgado and Luz Damayo. As a child, Mimi was something of a prodigy. She spent her childhood studying piano and dreaming of
becoming an Olympic gymnast.
She returned to LA just before her 18th birthday with a little over $1,000 to her name. Within a month, she'd run out of money and begun looking for jobs. She met with little success until she reached the age of consent.
Adult film career
Mimi came across an ad looking for nude models and answered it, thus beginning her rise in the adult film industry. Even though Mimi was always the least paid actress on the set, she continued knocking on studio producers doors. By this time she was becoming quite popular for her abilities to take well-endowed men during ... (text removed due to explicit words hehehe) scenes. She was also building a fan base due to her lesbian scenes. Mimi also had several surgeries to increase her natural "B" cup breasts to "DD" size.

Behind the scene of Pinoy Meets World interview.



To see clips of her videos, go to her website. She even has a blog.

Stressed

Stress according to Wikipedia:

In medical terms, stress is a physical or psychological stimulus that can produce mental or physiological reactions that may lead to illness.Technically speaking, stress is a disruption of homeostasis, which may be triggered by alarming experiences, either real or imaginary.[1][2]

Distress is the most commonly-referred to type of stress, having negative implications, whereas eustress is a positive, desirable form of stress. Both can be equally taxing on the body, and are cumulative in nature.
I've going through a lot of stressful situations lately, both positive and negative. Even the positive changes in my life are causing negative efffects on my body. I hope I survive with minimal damage to my system.

I need the change because my sub conscious has already warned me of the possible effects of homeostasis, and of not helping myself first before I help others.

*gulp*

Right Place

I find this video interesting because I come from a "line" of OCs. I have relatives who are neat freaks, they come from the Lising side. I'm their exact opposite, SB.

Wikipedia defines obssesive-compulsive disorder as "is a psychiatric disorder most commonly characterized by a subject's obsessive, distressing, intrusive thoughts and related compulsions (tasks or "rituals") which attempt to neutralize the obsessions. Thus it is an anxiety disorder.



Right Place
Uploaded by firat


This Japanese short film titled Right Place is quite interesting. It shows obsessive-compulsive behaviour in a funny, slightly surreal light.
The TV series Monk is a about a detective who had OCD.
Monica of the series Friends had OCD.
In the movie Mommie Dearest, Joan Crawford was depicted to have some OCD behavior. There was a movie on Howard Hughes that showed he was OCD.

Interpretation of My Dream


Inspite of the things I know, the "skills" I've learned, I can't still interpret my own dreams. I am able to interpret dreams of other people, people who are close to me, but I can't interpet my own.
Maybe a part of me inhibits myself from making the interpretation because I may involve my feelings or emotions when I do my own interpretation. Sometimes I second guess myself. Not that I do not believe I can't interpret my own dreams, it's just that I'm worried I may not be objective when it comes to my dreams.
Hmm... I had an unusual dream last night, a good yet bad dream. Flying, trip, leaving. I was about to go up but I didn't quite make it. I got the visa and the ticket. I didn't have a good suitcase, I wasn't prepared. I was one from the last bunch to board the plane, I nearly didn't get through because I didn't give my correct info. Then as I was about to board the plane, I saw "things" scattered or left behind by the people who went before us. I picked up these things so I could give them to those who left them. I wasn't able to get inside the plane, it took off while I was still on the steps. I could have gotten in the plane but I was thinking of the kids my companions had with them. I mean, people from my group were carrying kids and I was thinking I should help them. Then I woke up...

While I was typing this piece, it just dawned on me what my dream means. I've been all too concerned with people around me, picking the pieces of the lives of other people, helping other people. This gets in the way of fixing my life. I'm not able to prepare myself for my opportunities because I'm not focused on my life.

Yes. This is what my subconscious has told me. This is true.

22 yr old killed after being drawn into deceptive cyber romance

I'm sure a lot of people have seen this image:



I was reminded of this when I read about this news of this 22 year old kid who was killed over a deceitful cyber relationship.

An 18 year old Marine who was preparing for deplyoment has been constantly chatting with a young attractive lady who sent him pictures of her, even her lingerie.
In reality, the man Thomas Montgomery is actually a 47 year old married man while the woman is in her 40s and was sending out pics of her daughter. The wife intercepted one gift coming from the woman and she sent her a letter saying Montgomery had fooled her because he's 47 and married.
The woman remembered Montgomery's co worker, 22 year old Brian Barrett, so she called him at work to ask if Montgomery is really married and all. From here on they became friends and was in constant contact with each other. Inspite of what happened between her and Montgomery, they remained friends. She even told him that Barrett's been her communicating with her on a regular basis. This got Montgomery jealous. He shot Barrett .30-caliber rifle at close range.

Here's the twist: little did both men know, this supposedly 20-something attractive lady is actually a 40plus woman sending pics of her daughter! Hah!
Montgomery's wife has filed for divorce and it seems she and her kids have left their conjugal home in suburban Cheektowaga, where Miss 40plus sent Montgomery her lingerie that got intercepted by the wife.

Strange twist of fate. This is what you get for lying and cheating. I hope Mark reads this.

Magnanakaw!!!


Around 45 minutes ago, I heard someone screaming on the street. I thought the neighborhood kids were just fooling around but I decided to look a few minutes later. A young lady got robbed in the middle of this sleepy baranggay in Imus, Cavite. The robbers were riding a motorbike armed with a knife. The young lady had another lady companion but her bag was snatched from her just the same. She was carrying 50K with her. She didn't scream for help, she was just screaming. The menfolk didn't realize she needed help till it was a bit too late. They tried to run after the theives but they got away.

Grabe! Sunday 10AM in my own neighborhood. This isn't the first incidence of bag grabbing by motorbike riding theives. My next door neighbors, they were also robbed the same way but the incidents happened late at night and around 3AM.

When I first got here, I noticed people casually using cellphones while walking or on the jeep, people having cellphones dangling from their necks. Initially I was shocked kasi nga baka mahablot cellphones nila. Surprisingly wala akong nakita or narinig except for 1 incident of a cellphone nakawan in school, a grade 6 pupil brought her N90 phone to school kaya ayon, ninakaw. Anyway, I never heard of any snatching incidents till recently. First I heard happened around 3 or 4 months ago around 3AM. The lady was on her way to Baclaran to buy goods to sell. Kanina her daughter admitted getting robbed too, a few months after her mother got robbed. Call center agent kasi, so gabi sya na nakawan somewhere in Bayang Luma I think.

A local once told me that Cavite isn't a place for petty theives. Cavitenos do not tolerate theives and petty criminals. According to him people here would rather kill than steal, they say there is no honor in stealing. Mga dayo lang daw ang malakas ang loob na magnakaw dito.

People here are good are always willing to help, I hope there is a way to encourage the bayanihan spirit in Imus inorder to fight crime. Mahirap isipin na maari kang manakawan at masaktan sa loob ng sarili mong community.

The End of My Rosy Life

My Rosy Life Korea Novela

The Korea Novela My Rosy Life will end today. My initial reaction to Korean soap was kinda like, "Ok, another Korea novela. Puro love stories, drama, iyakan, etc. I'm sure this one will have a happy ending just like the rest. So what else is new?"

Betsy is the lead character here. The martyr wife, mother, sister, daughter, daughter-in-law, friend. She made sure everything was in order, she was always on top of the situation, sacrificing her own life and personal happiness. When she was only 12 I think, her mother left them. She had to take care of her 2 other siblings and also her father. This probably is the reason why she wants to please everyone, para hindi sya iwan. As long as everyone is happy and gets what they want, she was also happy. Dahil dito napabayaan nya sarili nya. Her husband, Ramon left her for a younger and sexier woman. She did everything to make things work, she even tried to improve her looks, but to no avail because Ramon was set on leaving her. She tried to put up a business; she invested their life savings with her friends na literally na kinuha ng friend nya at tinakbuhan sya. She had a physical breakdown, which led to the discovery of her stage 3 stomach cancer.


From here on puro iyakan na. Ako madalas puffy ang mga mata ko because the her situation, her reaction to her disease, the reaction of the people around her. Betsy's major concern was not that of dying but preparing herself and everyone around her for her death. She begged her doctor to help her live because her kids need her. Her sister Kelly who wanted to do everything to help Betsy and show how much she loved her, how she cried when she learned of Betsy's cancer and her frustration towards Ramon when he insisted on not telling Betsy how bad her cancer is. Umupo sa sahig at umiyak si Kelly while telling Ramon they needed to tell Betsy para nga naman she could prepare herself and her kids. Initially he kept blaming himself for what happened to his daughter. Kita ang sadness sa mukha even in his silence you could feel his sorrow especially when Betsy bid him farewell for the last time, sinundan pa nya ng tingin si Betsy at Ramon as they walked away from his house. Yung mga anak nila, they promised to be good wag lang mawala si Betsy. She knew she was going to die soon so she and Ramon left the house so no one would see her die, no one would see her dead. She wanted everyone to remember her alive. They left around dawn so the kids wouldn't see them leave. She didn't want to kiss them goodbye but she couldn't keep herself from kissing and hugging her children before they left. This scene was very touching to me kasi nga maiisip mo if you were in her situation, you would want to kiss and hug your kids as much as you can because you won't be able to do these things anymore. You would want to savor every minute that you have with your kids and tell them how much you love them. You would feel sad because you won't see your kids grow up, become successful in life, get married, you won't see your grandchildren.

I've been wanting to blog about this show but I had other concerns. Now I'm having a hard time finishing this blog post without getting emotional.

I understand Betsy, I've been there.

Do you have a New Year's Resolution?

Do you have a New Year's Resolution? 15 years ago I had a list of those and I never really got to do most of it. In 10 resolutions, I would be able to do 2. Hahahaha! So I changed my habit. Instead of creating resolutions I never resolve, I create GOALS. I feel goal setting is more positive and results-oriented (duhh?).

There was one time in my life I was able to fullfill all my goals or resolutions and it was in 1990. My resolutions were:
