I therefore conclude...

that I really can't do hiphop. It is sad but true. I'm not saying that I'll give up dancing - just this particular one. I've always been fascinated with it but it is true that not everyone can do it and I'm part of those who can't T.T

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

I remember when my heart broke.
I remember when I gave up loving you.

From 'I Remember'

Memoir of an Unutilised Employee

Back when I was part of the project team, I used to love going to the office 30 minutes to an hour earlier than my scheduled time. I always look forward to checking my inbox, talking to the people in operations about the issues and cases they've received, chatting with my fellow SMEs to ask about updates - about work and plain gossip.

TBC - antok na ako...

Wordpress

I forgot that I have one. It's really funny. It doesn't even have ANYTHING!

Sometimes, I feel as if this is really assuring. Makes me feel as if no one is looking at my posts so I could just put anything here and don't care about the grammar, spelling and language. Makes me feel really free even if in fact I'm not - we're not. But sometimes, it bothers me kasi no one even cares about my thought... Well, ganun talaga. Weather, weather lang and minsan we're in the mood to be senti :)

Angst from My So-called Weekend

I'm supposed to have a very busy weekend: attend the Blogger Fiesta event where I can hone my blog writing skills and at the same time expand my network; write an article or two on my blog; pick up my puzzle reservation; claim another voucher (guess for what? :P); and clean my room. Basically spend it away from the office. But alas! A well laid out plan was flushed down the drain with just one message. I suppose, just like rules are made to be broken, plans are made to be... changed. Just like a draft that only gets finalised once you do the act. *sigh*

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

I receive a last minute advise that we have to re-shoot our video entry for an office contest and it is supposed to take about 4 hours. As if! The last time, we spent more than 5 hours and I don't think this one will be shorter. I really, really hate this contest now that they've changed the contest format! GRAWR!!!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Learnings. I have to remind myself to like this or else I'll end up as one of those weird guys in a straight jacket. Hehehe. So what are the learnings I got:
+ Proper use of make-up. Oohlala!
+ Checking my existing network as some of them were pioneers in the blogging sphere and are really good writers.
+ Connected to the one above, reconnect with old friends :)

Blogger Fiesta in Manila

Who would have thought that even bloggers have these type of event these days?! Hehe. Just happen to stumble upon an old friend's post, Azrael, whom I met way back during my Juujiro days. The event will be on the 20th of August at SM Cyberzone, SM North EDSA and the entrace is absolutely FREE.

Hope to meet a lot of people there who are also interested in blogging. If you're one of those, just visit their site or click here to register

Outsourcing to the Cloud

If the people could be outsourced, why can't systems and applications? I first heard about 'cloud' during my search for an effective and free anti-virus software and I do think it's a wonderful idea. And now, have just read that there is a service offered to call centers to outsource their system using cloud-based systems! As usual, this is one of those times when I wish I'm part of the think tank who came up with this idea >.<

You could read the article here.

Royal Betting and Movie Marathon

I thought betting is only limited to sports betting but guess what, as per yahoo news, the royal wedding is fuelling the wagers! The wagers' worth is small compared to a sport event but still huge and it's really funny as some of the wagers sounds really wacky :)

I suppose this royal wedding is a really good thing for UK and EU in general as it is pulling the exchange rates up not to mention share prices (Hurray!).

Reference: Here comes the bets

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Hope the shares and exchange rate peak or at least keep on increasing til Friday. Can't wait to finally get rid of my RDSB :D

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Because of the busy year I had, the list of movies I've missed became long! Think about this, I haven't even seen HP7 when I usually take pains to watch every movie of this series (since the 4th installment lang ha kasi student pa ako nung 1-3 and student=purita T.T) on its first or second show day. Anyway, because of that together with my very free schedule at work, I'm watching at least 4-5 movies a week and 2 episodes of Kuroshitsuji or Nodame.

Part of the first few titles I've watched is Tangled. And I kind of related A LOT to her plight. I'll post my reflection on that bit on a seperate post. Promise!

Libre mangarap

Dami ko fantasies and top 5 ng list ko:

1) Hidi pa serious si crush and si GF para may chance pa ako. hehehe. I really, really WISH para hindi na laging crush!

2) Makareceive ng email by next week. If internal, people begging me to accept a position na NEED talaga nila as it would hit 2 birds with one stone: save them and save my brain from expiring. And take note - it is a promotion! If external naman, they want the process to be expedited kaya 2nd and 3rd interview is scheduled on the same week!

3) After nung interview ko, makareceive ako ng offer na uber ganda (sana ibigay yung inask ko and more. Definitely more kasi pangarap ko nga to di ba?!)

4) Related uli kay crush - magkaroon ng chance na makapunta sa country nila para may excuse ako na kulitin siya to show me some nice spots! weehee! chance ko nang magpa-cute!!!

5) To get out of the country na sponsored ng company! Grabe ilang taon ko na to pinapangarap and yung pinakamalayo kong narating eh yung area near a local depot for an outreach project! Sana kayanin na ng powers ko this year xxx

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Pwede nga mangarap di ba? So walang pakielamanan! Siguro naman sa blog ko pwede naman ako maging selfish kahit paminsan-minsan. And I'm sure naman na of all things sa wish list ko, isa lang magkatutuo... yung makareceive ng email period :)

I love: The 12 Commandments of Wealth

If I remember correctly, I got this from reader's digest so don't give me credit for this one as I'm only reposting :)

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

1. Seek money for money's sake and ye shall not find.
2. Find your perfect pitch. (Know your strengths and weaknesses.)
3. Be your own boss.
4. Get addicted to ambition.
5. Wake up early. Be early.
6. Don't set goals—execute or get executed.
7. Fail so you can succeed.
8. Location doesn't matter. Success can take place anywhere.
9. Moor yourself to morals.
10. Say yes to sales.
11. Borrow from the best—and the worst.
12. Never retire.

Ramblings: Posts in Review

Our connection speed is so darn fast that I couldn't even view my gmail inbox using the basic html view! Because of that my moves are limited to:
- reading until my brain is toasted. wiki night so to speak;
- working on any of the 4 jigsaw puzzles I'm working on (walang pakielamanan kung gusto ko 4 at a time :P);
- cleaning my room which I really don't want to;
- or surfing pages that won't pique my curiousity too much that I'll end up with 10+ page open, very very light reading and not too addicting.

Guess where I end up? My very own blog! I honestly don't remember the stuff I wrote here so I decided to refresh my memory :) First thing that came to mind - what made me write in Filipino?! I mean nalilito ako sa use ng ilang words and mas sanay ako na Engalog. On top of this, natatawa ako sa sobrang conversational ng tone! Hehe Anyway, I've only read 2-3 of the post so will read the others later na lang. Laugh trip nanaman to I'm sure ;)

Goodbyes

The last 2 months was an emotional roller coaster for me - my cancelled transfer, my mother's illness and a lot of goodbyes which I really hate. And just this week I had to deal with 4: 3 good friends I've met via work and our puppy. Now, I don't know what is more painful -spending a lot of time with a person but missed saying your goodbye in person or minimal contact but sharing majority of your time with them before they leave/gone for good.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

I think I never really got over the death of my father and it's affecting my ability to deal with any type of separation and attend anything related to death - family of colleagues alike...

EDIT:
I now think it's either my feminine hormones kicking in or just me connecting with my feminine self? Whatever it is, I don't think I like it much >.<

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Hopefully, Dan will be back in less than a month so that's something to look forward at least :)
