DO NOT LET CHILDREN PLAY WITH FLIP PHONES

My Dad sent me this e-mail. While we were chatting he received this mail and he decided to show it to me. Just want to share this with everyone.


DO NOT LET CHILDREN PLAY WITH FLIP PHONES!
A new study has revealed that flip phones can cause very serious side effects to the reproductive development of young children.
Keep all flip phones out of the reach of children.
Please pass this safety warning on to everyone on your email list.
If it prevents even one injury to an innocent child, it will have been worth it.
Do not delete this message! Forward it to everyone you know. Do it for the sake of the children. If you doubt the importance of this warning, please scroll down...

Goodbye Lola, I love you.



My grandmother, Luz Lising Domingo, passed away last Friday. She will be cremated today.

On November 7, she was rushed to the hospital due to high fever. It was discovered that she has pneumonia and a high level of UTI. When I visited her Saturday, she looked ok except that she was kinda delusional. A nurse took her temperature, he said it was not high anymore. My Lola stayed there till Wednesday, and was discharged Thursday morning.

I am sad to lose her. I was her favorite but when my nephew was born, I was dethroned. We were expecting her to go around April because she developed bed sores but the sores healed and she was fine again. My Uncle Bob, her first born, even went ahead of her. He had stage 4 cancer and he passed away September 21. Naunahan pa ni Uncle si Lola. She never knew her son died. My Auntie tried to tell her but my lola had some dementia already.

Auntie told her, "Mommy wala na si Bobby." Lola responded, "Diba nasa hospital sya?" Auntie clarified, "Wala na po sya, Nasa heaven na." Then Lola asked, "Kelan sya babalik?"

Apparently, she could not absorb the idea that my Uncle has passed away already. We could not bring her to my Uncle's body (he died at home) kasi we were afraid she would also die that day too.

I was able to visit Lola a few times while she was in the hospital. I am happy to have been able to serve her a few times. Masaya na rin ako kasi she recognized me. That means that she knew I was able to feed her and fix her. I even put lipstick on her because I was afraid her lips would crack since she was breathing through her mouth.

On the last day I saw her, there was a point she was just looking at me as if she was trying to tell me, "My dear apo, it's a pity I won't be spending more time with you anymore." She had that look in her eyes that were kinda sad but loving. I smiled and waved at her and she smiled faintly.

My only regret is that I was not able to tell her I love her. I know she felt my love during the time I was at the hospital with her pero iba pa rin kung nasabi ko sa kanya na mahal ko sya. With my Uncle, I was not able to really serve him but I was able to tell him I love him.

I'm rambling. I'm expressing my thoughts, my sadness. But I know she is now resting and with her Creator.

Goodbye Lola. I love you.

Jocjoc Bolante is sick

Yes, Jocjoc Bolante is sick. He is in the hospital because he as ulcer. He has the run-of-the-mill ulcer, nothing serious I think.

But wait! There's more!

From what I heard, he talks even when he is alone. I therefore conclude he is sick, maybe not very sick physically, more of mentally/psychologically/emotionally kinda sick.

Unusual Events

A few nights ago, I woke up right in the middle of the night feeling really scared. Feeling ko may "kasama" ako sa room ko and I thought I had no where to go, no one to run to because I was alone. I would not have been that scared if there was someone in the house with me. This is the second time this has happened to me. The first time happened when I was in high school. I woke up in the middle of the night and felt like my late (paternal) grandfather was in the room with me. I stood up and turned on the light and walked around my room. I went back to sleep still feeling scared.

I am sick, I have the flu so I would wake up when I feel pain or if my temperature would rise. I woke up at around 11 PM. Around 1AM, I heard the front door close. I went to check but no one was there. I would know if there was someone who came in the compound because I put bells or chimes on the gate. Pag dumadating yung isang nakatira dito sa compound, alam ko kasi naririnig ko ang gate pati yung pag lakad niya papunta sa unit nila. This time it was just a door. I dismissed it and thought baka guni-guni ko lang.

Kaninang mga 7 AM naman, I was watching this TV series about Allison Dubois, Medium. I was massaging my head while lying on my side when I saw a shadow pass by my side. Parang sa corner ng eye ko so I tried to simulate it baka naman fingers ko yon since I had my hand on my head. It was not my fingers. I knew it was a shadow. I'm not scared but then it can sometimes get to me since I live alone and I feel kinda vulnerable right now,

I am no psychic but there are times I feel strange stuff. This does not happen all the time or most of the time, not even during a particular time of the year. Maybe it's because my uncle passed away recently and people in my family feel it could be him.

I don't know,

Customer Service Everywhere

I went to Manila Central University (MCU) hospital last night because my blood pressure would not normalize and I was not able to get enough sleep the whole day.

I arrived at MCU siguro mga 11 PM na but was attended by the ER doctor around 12:30. He was not a gentle and personable doctor. Another doctor took his place, this doctor was a little gentler but was a bit on the condescending side when she spoke to me. She mentioned about giving me an ECG but because of the commotion inside the ER (may isang patient na talagang serious, his family thought he was dead), nakalimutan na ako ng mga doctors. I was given medication then that was it. No one remembered to take my blood pressure after taking the med.

Syempre nairita ako, I stood up asked the first doctor, "What am I waiting for?" Mukhang wala sya sa sarili nya, he just said "Huh?" Sinalo ng katabi nyang doctor and asked what the problem is. She checked on my chart then told me she will get my BP then decide what will happen next. Mabuti na lang maamo ang mukha nya and she was pleasant. Iba talaga ang nagagawa ng pag ngiti ng isang tao sa overall aura nya. She was not all smiles or grinning from ear to ear, in fact she was not smiling all the time but her eyes were smiling. She was pleasant to talk to, her manner was soothing and she was not condescending at all. Imbes na mairita pa akong lalo, I was glad she was the one who discharged me. I was pleased with her attitude and demeanor.

On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the highest, I would give her 9. I would give her 10 but then I am not exactly satisfied with the hospital services and utilities, she had to give me information I did not like exactly and her hair was a bit messy but she was still good. Her name is Dr. Javier of the ER. If anyone of you happen to drop by the ER of MCU, silipin nyo si Dr. Javier, one of the student doctors there. She is pretty, slim, long hair and puppy dog eyes. Hehehe.

Kanina I had to go to Mercury Drug to get my med. I went to the branch that was close to MCU, kahilera ng Yellow Cab. Yung clerk na natapatan ko was talking to a customer. He had an Ilonggo accent and kept addressing the customer as nanay or ma'am. I was suprised he did not take my "order" right after taking the nanay's order. Mukhang baguhan sya. Nakakatuwa sya kasi inspite of his slight nervousness he tried his best to be good at what he was doing and probably was following their company's customer facing procedure. Nung ako na kaharap niya, he would check first if the medicine that I asked was available. Kung available, he would proceed to ask me what else I need. Tapos for mefenamic acid, he asked me for a prescription. I said I was never asked for a prescription for mefenamic acid before then he said next time I should have one. He was not stern or condescending, he was nice and pleasant too. Yun lang I feel that he's still wet behind the ears and he did not know which medication were available or not or how they are spelled. Hehehe.

When I gave him my money, he said "I received P100." Parang Jollibee diba? Pati na nung binigay nya change ko, he said "Your change is ..." Aliw ako. Hehehe.

Right before I left the store, I checked if I had my prescription with me. I asked the prescription from him and he immediately looked for it. He returned it to me and was apologetic. I smiled and said it's ok. I was amused.

I would give Boyet, the Mecury clerk, 8. Apparently, he still need to get into the flow of things. His wants to give personalized service but this slows him down and some customers do not appreciate this. I like his style. He tried to cover all his bases and he was sincerely apologetic with his minor kapalpakan. I do not get to see his kind of customer servicing style from the other Mercury Drug clerks all over the Philippines. Not that I'm saying these clerks are bad, I think the clerks are ok naman, well some are ok and not all. It is kinda refreshing to see smiling and sincere clerks once in a while. Boyet is one of them. This is just my opinion.

Heartbreak

I had to bring 3 big and heavy boxes to my relatives because another relative ordered these stuff for them. I was kinda upset and tired. The boxes were heavy and bulky. On my way there nag stop over pa yung cabbie to get gas. I wanted to berate him but I controlled myself. I was thinking baka i-overcharge pa nya ako kse most taxis have meters that are madaya. Good thing ok ang metro nya so nabawasan ang inis ko.

As soon as I reached the place, my Aunt greeted me warmly. I kissed her and went directly to check on my Lola. I do not know if she recognized me but she did ask me when I arrived, her usual spiel. I then went to the next room and I saw one cousin with her kids. She was holding
her newborn. I carried the newborn and fed her and burped her so my cousin could take a shower and go to church.

By this time malamig na ulo ko. I enjoyed holding the small baby in my arms. She smelled nice and she seemed to enjoy sleeping in my arms. Another cousin greeted me and I told her about the stuff I brought. She was touched by my other relative's gesture and she kept saying ang bait nya. Gumanda na mood ko because of this. I thought my sacrifice was small, the fact that my relatives appreciate the items that my other relative bought for them was enough to make me happy.
I went to his room when my cousing brought his food. He lost weight and looks older. I kissed him and told him I brought some stuff from abroad sent by another relative. He acknowledged me, his voice was weak. I did not want to stay long insde the room, I felt akward but my cousin insisted I stay and we chatted for a while. My sister called while we were in the room, she spoke with my cousin first then talked to me briefly. She asked me how she is, I could not speak because I felt I would burst into tears.

When my other cousin arrived, we had lunch together. Right after lunch, I told everyone I had to leave. As I was preparing myself, my cousin informed me to say goodbye to him. I was not expecting this, I usually leave without saying goodbye because he would be asleep by the time I leave. So nagpaalam ako. As I approached him, he held out his hand and held my hand and kissed it while I kissed his forehead. Nagulat ako. I just left at once baka doon pa ako sa looob ng room humagulgol.

I called my Mom and told her about this, she cried. We both cried. She told me he loved me the most, I told her I know he does, never doubted this. My Mom told my Dad what I told her. He left the room and cied alone.

I just hope he knows I love him too. I can't tell him verbally because I;m afraid to break down and cry. I do not want him to see me cry or get emotional. I do not want to see him sad.

I plan to cook his favorite pinakbet this coming weekend. I hope he gets to eat a lot this weekend.

LIFE Seminar for Women Loving Women

My friend asked me to spread the word.


LIFE Seminar for Women Loving Women

Start: Aug 15, '08 7:00p
End: Aug 17, '08


A talented team of women, leaders, entrepreneurs, psychologists, under the name of Quanta are producing the Ultimate Life Seminar for Women. The designated participants in the upcoming weekend experience are lesbians and women who love women. It will be held August 15 - 17 at the AIM Conference Center Manila in Makati. The object of the seminar is achieving the life balance that is just right for each participant. Each person will be led to accelerate the discovery process of "who you are and how to become all you want to become." Each person finds their shortcut to enjoying and thriving in their chosen relationships -- personal and romantic, family and business. The dynamic interactive three-day seminar has three stages beginning with the discovery stage -- discovering one's true passions, one's really treasured values and beliefs, one's true friends, and one's self-imposed obstacles. The result is: at long last "you become an expert on you." In the second stage "you become the architect of the life and life balance you have always wanted. In the final stage of the Life Seminar "you see through the obstacles" and utilize the your new insights, along with a life coach, by which you actually begin to focus on attaining the change and achieving the Life Balance in the person who will be the "new you."

Attitude of Gratitude

I went through a terribly stressful week last week, I still feel the "aftershocks" till now.

Normally I would have bitched about it here, would have talked about the people who treated me poorly. I decided to put off blogging about it. Now, I have a totally different attitude. My exeprience gave me a different perspective of the people around me. My eyes are wide open now.

I just want to thank God or the Universe or any Higher Being. I received guidance from a Higher Source. It's kinda amusing how events unfolded. Feeling ko parang may nagsasabi sa akin kung ano nangyayari, like an unseen force telling me what to do and what is happening.

Anyway. I'd like to thank the people who visited and left a comforting words.
Senorito ako

Hindi ko matanggap...

Hindi ko matanggap...
Gusto kong ihampas ang telepono kanina, gusto kong sumigaw.
Hindi ko lang magawang magwala kanina pero napahagulgol ako.
Bumuhos ng husto ang luha ko tulad ngayon.

Sobra ang sakit na nararamdaman ko pero pakiramdam ko manhid ako, naiiyak na lang ako pag naaalala ko.
Dapat natutulog na ako kaso di ko mapilit ang sarili ko.

Siguro naman may pag-asa pa, puwede pang gawan ng paraan.
Baka may lunas na di pa nalalaman.
Ayaw ko syang mag hirap pero di ko gustog siya'y mawala.
Puwede bang ako na lang?

Hindi ko matanggap, na dadating ang panahong hindi ko na sya makikita...

Monday, April 28, 2008

Next time...

Sorry JC and Jaydee, I'm supposed to write about the perversion thing but I'm tired. My work sched keeps changing every 2 to 3 weeks and it's wearing me out, mind, body and spirit.

Ang dami kong gustong ikuwento pero wala ako sa tamang frame of mind to tell these stories. Sana next week ok na ako.

Abangan!

Tuesday, April 08, 2008

Hey there pretty lady... NOT!!!!

This was sent to us by Mr Biceps. I told him there's a market for this and asked him if he would like to see more. He said no need to see more, he wanted to share with us what he does on weekends. Hehehehe.











Chismis


My maternal grandmother has been bedridden for about a month now. I've seen how her state of mind deteriorated in less than a year. She’s now getting weaker every day.

My uncle and auntie have been taking care of her. Nahihirapan din sila kasi they are also old and sick. Last week, I called a relative, an aunt in the province, and asked her if she could find a maid to take care of my lola. She said she will try. I told her how my lola is, told her she is bedridden with bed sores na. These are signs that she may go soon. But her spirit is stronger than her body. Nakakasigaw pa sya.

Last Sunday, I got a text message from my aunt from the province saying that she heard from another relative that my lola is in coma. My aunt wants to know if she would still have to look for a maid. I was in a shock, I did not know if I should get upset or if I should laugh.

I wanted to laugh because in spite of the supposedly condition of my lola, my relative was more concerned our arrangement with the maid. Nakupo! Displaced priorities or concerns?

I wanted to get upset because I was not sure the story was true. I had a feeling the person who relayed the message made an automatic assumption that my lola is in a coma and passed on this story to another relative. I got more upset when I tried to call people but their phones were either unattended or turned off. I could not call my uncle or auntie who were taking care of my lola because I did not want them to know where the story came from, it might offend them specially my uncle. I had to leave work a little early to check what's happening. Buti na lang my brother's phone was turned on so I was able to ask him to call my auntie to ask if Lola's ok. He texted me later saying lola is still the same. I was glad to hear that but I was still upset over the coma story. I informed my sister as soon as she got home from church. She told me that earlier she called another relative and told her how our lola is doing. She mentioned to her that lola is bedridden and did not mention anything about her being in a coma. I told her I had a feeling someone changed the story. My sister had to call a cousin to tell our relative that Lola is bedridden and not in a coma.

Although I know that the person who changed the word "bedridden" to "comatose" from the story had no bad intentions when she said that. Still, this is no excuse to be irresponsible with your words or relaying stories that are untrue and potentially hurtful. I was afraid my uncle would learn of this and get upset. Worse, my mom would hear of this and get really upset. She is abroad and she feels helpless there. I do not want her to get upset over chismis like this.

This is the work of idle minds. When people with minds are not preoccupied with more important things, they tend to create stories from nothing. Some of my relatives have been idle for a long time, no work, no play, just plain day to day nothingness. What's even worse is that they people they have been mingling with are not good influences. My relative's circle of friends have been encouraging her to take part in idle talk and destructive ideas or thoughts. Hay naku...

Remember, people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold -- but so does a hard-boiled egg.

From Congratulations to Riding Hard?

A co-worker got promoted and has been transferred to a different location. Syempre, kanya kanyang batian. We all congratulated her and we are all happy for her. Nothing unusual about that. But if you read the thread of that one topic, magugulat ka paanong nag mutate from a simple congratulations to "riding high."

Let's call her Miss Empathy. Magaling sya sa mga empathy statements. She looks shy and naive and sounds like a teenager. Wag ka! She knows the ways of the world talaga. One time, the members of our account had an informal meeting with a representative from the client side. Ice breaker churky ni Mr. Client, write a sentence about yourself that no one else in the group knows and they will all try to figure out who wrote the sentence. Miss Empathy made a lasting impression on the client and our trainor, Mr. Biceps. Ang statement ng lola:

I find hentai boring.

Nagulat lahat. Si Mr. Biceps, till now ikinukuwento sa mga ibang former co-wokers namin. Nakakagulat nga naman kasi come to think of it, if hentai is boring then she must want something more hard core than that.

So ngayon, half of those who greeted Miss Empathy mentioned hentai don sa greetings nila. Pati Big Boss namin nagugulat why a lot of those who greeted her mentioned hentai. He even teased Miss Empathy that he will call IT to check her PC for hentai stuff at baka di na sya makalipat at mapromote. She reacted saying she's a big girl now, she doesn't browse for hentai. She's into S&M na. Ayan! Dami nag react to what she said. I said I can imagine her in tight black outfit with a bullwhip and handcuffs. Yung isa parang na shock apparently his imagination was really running wild. One said two piece bikini na lang, another said necklace na lang ala Rose of the Titanic.

Other's did not react at once because they probably did not know what S&M stands for. One girl, 19 pa lang sya, asked what it means, iba iba sagot. Nakakatawa talaga! Big boss suggested that we should Google the image of S&M. Loko din boss namin!

For 3 days our yahoogroup was super active. But then by Saturday morning, tumahimik na. Nagtaka ako parang biglang natameme lahat. So I decided to Google some of the stuff mentioned. Ito yung last e-mail:

Wow interesting.

Sheila share ko naman favorite namen ni papa R ha?

Do a google search of “riding hard”. Click the first link.

This is irresistible. Do this at home


After this e-mail, Miss Empathy reacted, she will Google this daw. That was the last. Wala na sumagot, wala na nag react. Dahil sa day off ko, nagkaroon ako ng chance to browse. This is what I found.

Mukhang nahimasmasan lahat ng tao after Googling "riding hard." Nyahahahaha!

Good Heavens! Good Luck!

The heat is starting to get worse! Sumasakit na ulo ko sa init. I'm worried I won't be able to get quality sleep beacause of this. Haayy.

It's my off. I was able to finish my laundry yesterday, 3 batches. Kung may pera lang ako bibili ako ng automatic washing machine para isang saksakan lang puwede ko na iwan. What I'm using now is semi-automatic. Oh well...

This morning, I was amused at the news on Unang Hirit. Erap can run again according to him. Sabi na nga ba. Kaya maingay sya kasi he's a sore loser and he wants to oust the person who took his place. Kulang siguro nahuthot nya during his term and he wants more.

I'm glad some of the people during the inter-faith rally walekd out when Erap spoke. The people who walked out showed some delikadesa. Erap had no right to speak there since he is corrupt himself. Na aliw ako when a media man from Agence France Press pratically pinpointed to Erap na mandarambong sya. Napikon daw si Erap. Hehehe. Eh diba totoo naman? He was convicted of plunder and now he wants GMA to step down so he can pick up where he left off? He's a freaking hypocrite!

I am also dismayed at what's been happening to Jun Lozada. Why is he going from school to school, town to town to campaign? Tatakbo ba sya or nagpo-promote ng pelikula? Who is funding this campaign thing of Lozada? What is his purpose? What's the real reason behind the people who are pushing him to do this? If I were Lozada, I should be wary of the people who are using him. Once he has served his purpose, he will be useless to them. No one is indispensable.

If GMA steps down. who will take her place? Laht nagkakaisa para paalisin si GMA but when asked who will take her place, nagkakagulo na, hindi na sila magkaisa. Hay naku... Lumalabas ang mga real motives.

We are a country of hypocrites talaga. Nagsisimba, nagdadasal, kunyari iniisip ang kapakanan ng taong bayan pero wag ka, may ibang motibo talaga. Ang dali nating makalimot. Ang dali nating talikuran ang ating mga pangako lalo na kung ang kapalit ng ating mga pangako ay katuparan ng ating ambisyon.

I am for the cause, but not with the system. Nadinig ko na ito dati, nung nasa college pa ako. Panahon pa ni Makoy, alam nyo naman sa UP, mahilig sa churky hehehe. Who will take GMA's place? I don't think there is anyone qualified to take her place. No one in this country can call himself morally upright. Kung meron man puwedeng pumalit kay GMA na morally upright, good luck to you!

Anober?

Dami kong natututunan sa work. Aside from work related stuff, I learn new words like churky.

May bago na naman akong nasagap. I'm not sure if this expression has been around already but I heard this first at work. The expression ber (sounds like bird minus the d).

I always hear from our expert this, "Ano ber?"
Or from one of the ladies on the floor, "Ano ka ber?"
My manager told me while we were chatting, "Anuver?"

Puwede rin anukaber, sinober, etc. It sounds kinda cute when the ladies say this. May mga bading din kaso iilan lang bading sa area namin.

I miss having gay co-workes. They add life to the office.
Maraming bading sa company pero wala sa account namin. Technical kse nature ng account namin kaya siguro walang bading. Sa ibang accounts maraming transexual at may mga transgendered(?). Natanso na ako sa comfort room, may nakachika ako, lalaki pala! Hahahaha!

What Can I Say?

I'm not really happy right now.
I'm tired and I always get headaches.
I'm disheartened by what's been happening.
Sigh... Oh well...

Wala naman makitang paraan para ayusin ito, wala naman tech support na puwedeng sabihan nito kaya tiis muna ako sa mga built in na templates ng Blogger.

May mga gusto akong isulat na interesting kaso baka mabasa ng boss ko, sisantehin ako. Hehehe. Yung trainer namin si Mr. Biceps nagbabasa pala. Jusko! I-announce ba sa buong klase namin yung squirting?! Natural na curious mga co-trainees ko, alam na nila ngayon kung ano ito. Ang bastos ko raw. Iba yata image ko sa work, akala nila saint ako. Hahahaha!

Tapos ang boss ko, he googled my name. Nakita nya blog ko so ayun. Nanganganib ang aking career. Hehehehe!

Next time na ang mga kuwentong churky.

Today is better - The next day was better na ito

Pasensya na mga kaibigan. Naging busy lang kasi sa work; nag iba-iba ang sched ko dahil sa training tapos pagod na ako pag dating ko sa bahay. Ito na ang katuloy ng kuwento...


I got home exhausted physically and emotionally. I wanted to just go to sleep and forget about everything but I couldn't. I felt I needed to resolve one issue, my earring. I hoped that I dropped it at home and not anywhere else. I had to sweep/clean my room and the bathroom for the last time. Pinagpag ko pa bed ko, removed my pillows and blanket and ran my palms and fingers onto the top of the bed sheet. Walang hikaw. I shifted through the dirt and found nothing. When I finally hit my bed, I felt worse than ever. As I was sliding my hands under my pillows I was thinking, what if I suddenly feel my ear-ring under my pillow at nandon lang pala. In less than a minute, I felt something like a big piece of dirt under my pillow. It felt odd so I picked it up and looked at it. I turned on the light and discovered that it was the pakaw of my hikaw (the lock or screw of the ear-ring)! Haleluya! I turned on all the lights and swept every place I went to inside the house. Wala. I swept the bathroom floor, the sala floor, the laundry area.... Wala. I really looked. But I was full of hope kasi I found the pakaw, the ear-ring could be inside my house. It could also have been dropped outside when I went out to buy food. Sigh. I went to sleep praying that my ear-ring was in the house.

The next day, after waking up, my initial reaction was to look for my earring. I went to the toilet to do my stuff first, wash face and such. Then I went to where I left the dirt from last night sweeping, it wasn't there. I inspected every corner of my bed, it wasn't there. I went back to my bedroom and did one last sweeping. Wala talaga. Mukhang wala ng pag asa. I went back to the toilet. Lo and behold! The earring was on the carpet! It appeared as if someone had just dropped it there for me to see! I swept the bathroom floor before going to sleep, I saw small pieces of tissue paper on the carpet. If my ear ring was there, I definitely would have seen it.

I find it amusing that I sometimes lose things and find them eventually in places I've already looked. Feeling ko lang may naglalaro sa akin. This isn't the first time this happened to me.

Anyways, all is well that ends well. My co-worker got the sched fair and square (sinuhulan nya yung gumagawa ng schedule hehehe). I have adjusted to my time zone, EST. My ear ring is more important that the schedule.

Yesterday was bad, Today is better

I had a semi-shitty day yesterday.

I woke up feeling weak and tired. It was my first day and I was hormonal. Ugh! HR kept texting me about some requirements that I failed to submit earlier, I had to look for some of them.

Then as I was about to take a shower, I noticed that my right ear-ring was missing and I panicked! Pucha that piece was given to me by my Mom from the US. Diamante yata. I looked all over my room and the bathroom but I could not find it. I was thinking that if I dropped my ear-ring at home, I could still find it. But if it was dropped at work or in the cab, that's it! Goodbye hikaw. Patay!

While taking a shower the next door neighbor started taking a shower too. Natural, we had to share the resources and I ended up getting less because they were closer to the source. Buwiset! Kung kelan nagmamadali ako. Magkasunod pa sila naligo ha! And to think they were not going anywhere at 4:30 in the afternoon, day off nilang mag asawa. Of course, I could have just asked them to give way to me since I was going to work and I was almost done but I did not have the energy to ask. Siyempre I would have to go out with conditioner in my hair and in a robe and towel. Not a nice sight. Kahit tapos na akong maligo, iniwanan kong bukas ang gripo full force para mapuno yung big pail ko at mahirapan sila mag ipon ng tubig for a while. Hehehe.

After taking a shower and dressing up, I had to look around for the last time for my ear-ring. Ikot ako ng ikot. I was getting more tired moving around and not finding it. I gave up and went to work. Na late ako ng 5 mins because of this. Buti considerate ang trainer ko.

After our shift, we were sent our schedules. Since the schedule was not final and unassigned, our trainer decided to give it to our batch so we could choose our scheds. The file was sent to one guy so it's but normal he gets to read the sched first. Malas ko, I was the last to see it. They all were able to get their scheds, I ended up getting what was left. The guy who got the list of scheds wanted the same sched I wanted but he was holding the list of schedules. Nauna na raw sya and he won't give it up daw. Sabi ko I won't give up either. It came to a point where he said something like makikipag away daw sya sa akin if he doesn't get it or aawayin nya ako. I said makikipag away din ako. I was looking at the schedule but I could not focus because he kept yapping and talking noisily. He kept saying hindi sya papayag at gusto niya toss coin na lang. Susme! Kalalaking tao sasabihan ang babae na aawayin nya! Tapos kung anu ano pa sinasabi. Nainis ako so I said he can keep the sched because there is no way the issue will be resolved. He said he wanted to toss the coin with me but I refused and I started to walk away. He still kept yapping, he said magmumukha raw siyang masama. Huh? Ano ba yan?! I told him it will never be resolved that way so he can have it. I walked and never looked back (drama!).

I understand his point that he wanted the sched. Sa totoo lang ang pangit ng ginawa nilang sched because the it appears that the morning shift people has the advantage of getting a closer to normal time and days off. The night shift scheds had days off right in the middle of the week. Sino ba magkakagusto nito? Nakakainis diba? Nakakaturn off yung ko worker ko kse he was acting like a kid and he said things like aawayin ako. Kalalaki nyang tao sasabihin yon, dinig pa ng ibang agents on the flooor. Mas matanda pa ako sa kanya, he should have shown a little more respect rather that saying makikigpag away siya sa akin within the ear shot of the other people around us. Kaya ayun, walk out ang lola. Of course I showed some petulance by walking out but I'd rather give up that sched that argue loudly with him. If he feels or thinks he looks bad infront of the other people, that's not my problem anymore.

I got home exhausted physically and emotionally. I wanted to just go to sleep and forget about everything but I couldn't. I felt I needed to resolve one issue, my ear-ring. I hoped that I dropped it at home and not anywhere else. I had to sweep/clean my room and the bathroom for the last time. Pinagpag ko pa bed ko, removed my pillows and blanket and ran my palms and fingers onto the surface of the bed sheet. Walang hikaw. I shifted through the dirt and found nothing. When I finally hit my bed, I felt worse than ever. As I was sliding my hands under my pillows I was thinking, what if I suddenly feel my ear-ring under my pillow at nandon lang pala. In less than a minute, I felt something like a big piece of dirt under my pillow. It felt odd so I turned on the light to see what it was...

RIP: Heath Ledger

I saw PearlJem on googletalk with this status message. I asked her if it's true, totoo daw. Shocking! Heath Ledger dead at 28.


I felt a bit sad because somehow he reminds me of someome and it's kinda unnerving to imagine that this someone could be him.

Que lastima...

This and That

Mari, wish ko lang magaling akong manghula. When I was in college kaya ko pero katuwaan lang, but not anymore. I'll look for a manghuhula for you.

Char, I have been listening to the Long Relax and Short Relax. I was able to resolve my sleep problem but then it seems that even when I listen to the Short Relax after lunch, nakakatulog talaga ako! Hahahaha!

I am doing some meditaion exercises again. I have some decisions to make. I'm a bit troubled right now.

Good luck to me.

4 Aces Hula (Divination)

I met up with my friend Blu this afternoon. I haven't seen her in years. She invited her former co-worker Ysa to join us. Blu broke up with her 7 year GF so we had a lot of catching up to do. During the course of the kuwentuhan, she mentioned that Ysa saw in her cards that her GF has a man in her life. Ergo, Ysa knows how to make hula (divination) using ordinary playing cards.

After a while I teased Ysa to show me how she makes hula. She uses the four Aces technique. Natawa ako. This was the kind of hulaan we did in high school. Katuwaan lang, nothing serious. I was able to learn how the hula works. Pagdating ng college, I was giving hula to my blockmates. The cards I used were half the size of the regular playing cards, in pink with a My Melody design on one side. You would think tarot cards gagamitin ko pero kuwidaw, orig na My Melody ang akin! Hehehe.

Like I said, we did it for katuwaan. Yun lang there were times medyo close to accurate yung hula ko. I never gave it much thought since I was thinking my hula was close to home due to the fact that I knew my friends well.

I haven't done the hula for almost 20 years now. For some reason, I forgot what some of the cards stood for.

I just find it amusing that there are a few people who knew how to use the 4 Aces hula. Of course, there are different nuances to ever card, different ways of interpreting the card positons, etc. Ysa's style was somewhat different from mine, even the choosing which cards to pick up first was kinda "different". But the basic principles were there.

Blu asked to be read twice then I asked Ysa to read my cards. Yung katok ko pa lang sa cards sabi nya mabigat, meaning I still have strong feelings (either love or hate) for the person. After all the seremonyas, she told me that I still have feelings for the person I knocked my cards for, he doesn't feel the same way for me though (ouch!). She saw another woman getting in the way (another ouch!) but she also saw another man who is established financially/rich whom I was considering. Ok... Not bad. Close to accurate.

Blu asked for 1 more reading. Then Ysa asked to be read by Blu since Blu already knows how to read the cards, sa dinami dami ba naman ng beses na nagpahula sya! Hehehe.

After she read Ysa's cards, I asked Blu to read my cards to check if the same thing would appear. Lo and behold! She gave me the same reading/interpretation. I never mentioned the name of the person and if I was requesting the reading for the same person but the same thing appeared. May lumabas lang about money or career but the other woman and other man with money showed up.

Aliw!

I will look for play cards here and do the reading myself. Hehehe.

FVR in 2010?

I was half-awake, half-asleep when the news flashed on TV. FVR may run in 2010 if Erap decides to run... Really???
