I give my weekend 4 stars! :)
Friday after work, we watched Ghost Rider and had popcorn for dinner. I thought i wouldnt like the movie again but it was okay. it's creepy sometimes but just think of how much time they put into making that skull head burn like the real thing. When we rode the tricycle home, i felt like a ghost rider as it went broom brrroooom!
Then Saturday it was so hot i was lazy to get up after an afternoon nap but i forced myself to go out so we headed to Mall of Asia and played at EGG. Azrael and I played Soul Calibur and Dead or Alive of Xbox. Those are the only arenas that we can actualize what we really want to do with each other and that is, kick each other's butt.
And finally! I once again tried my luck in ice skating. It scared me a lot that i might fall down while gazillions of people are peering through the glass. But it was so cool and i wish i can go again next weekend. it's a good activity to forget everything and just focus on your legs. hahaha
Then we ate at Guilly's Island ( is that the correct spelling?) and had beer to top off the evening. Although the beer gave me an acid stomach come sunday.
Sunday we were supposed to go swimming but my stomach was really bad the whole day so I just watched Kris Aquino, James Yap, and Hope. And before going to sleep, there was a wrestling match (literally) between Azrael and me after we watched Transporter 2 in HBO.
So there, 4 stars! Pictures to follow. Azrael, please put them here please. I hope I have a nice week! : )

It's friday! I'm testing email to blog once again and I hope this time it's going to work. I love Friday, people can wear jeans to work, stay up late, and wake up late Saturday morning. I can't wait for night time to come so i can curl up on my bed and enjoy the cold night .
I'm planning to go somewhere today, a place where i can play and forget about work and the plight of humans - which is, to work until you die. ahahaha. i didnt mean to sound too negative but i talked about it over lunch with a friend. we said that when we were young, we go to school, and now we are old, we go to work. and it's 5 days a week, and only 2 days are left for us to enjoy. Then when we have enough money, we are also old enough. old, meaning you can't ride the rollercoaster anymore or walk miles, or go shopping because you don't have anything to buy or dress up for anymore.
and now, people don't have time for romance because they say they are working hard for the future. But when you're old, your hormones betray you. for men, it doesn't get up anymore, and for women menopause kicks in and you suddenly have no interest for romance or even men.
what im saying is, we have limited time for everything and we have to push ourselves to enjoy life no matter what. and so, get off your work cubicles at 5pm and let's enjoy life! : )

It's just Thursday and I feel as heavy as ever! have you ever experienced being with a "makulit na pasahero"? You know, those people who say "tsk..tsk..ang trapik!" or "ang init!".. well i think i encountered my worst yet today as i rode the shuttle from Mall of Asia to my house in Bacoor. There were 2 old man and woman in front of me and another old lady beside me. I am one of those who remain courteous to old people. But this one, tested me to the limits! I better explain in Filipino so you get every detail.
So, naghihintay mapuno ang van ng pasahero.
Pasaway: "Alis na tayo, hindi na mapupuno... masikip na". and she repeats this over and over..
Pasaway: "Lahat ng sasakay dun na sasakay sa kabila.... buti pa ung isang van umalis na (hello! ibang byahe po yun!)"
When it gets hot inside the Tamaraw Type Shuttle (Like those in Ayala)
Pasaway: "Ang init, tumatagaktak na ang pawis ko" - Sabay bukas ng window!!! aba! maalikabok kaya noh? at lalong iinit dahil lalabas ung lamig! ay naman talaga....
Pasaway 2 at 3: "Mabuti pa sa jeep, labasan ang hangin" - Eh bakit dito kayo sumakay?!
Pasaway: (When i asked her to close the window politely) "Neng! Naiinitan ako eh. Dyan nanggagaling ung usok sa may pinto hindi kasi naka seal" -- ano daw????
Pasaway: "Baba ako sa SM"
Driver: "Bawal po dito"
Pasaway: "Eh bakit ayan oh madaming nababa" and tries to get out of the moving van.. -- ay naku kung di lang ako mabait tinulak na kita.
Pasaway: "Ang layo ng bus stop!" "Kanina pa ko na-para eh"
Oh my God! I mean, everyone wants to go home, and everyone is tired. So dear commuters, old or young, please use your common sense and don't ride if you will just complain. If you get hot easily, bring a fan. It never gets cold in the highway!
Thank God, tomorrow is the last work day for the week.

I've been living with a shadow overhead
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I've been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past, I just can't seem to move on
I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need em again someday
I've been setting aside timeTo clear a little space in the corners of my mind
All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I've been searching but I just don't see the signs
I know that it's out there
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere
I've been looking fro someone to shed some light
Not just somebody just to get me through the nightI could use some directionAnd I'm open to your suggestions
All I want to do is find a way back into loveI can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart againI guess I'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end
There are moments when I don't know if it's real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation
All I want to do is find a way back into loveI can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart to youI'm hoping you'll show me what to do
And I you help me to start again
You know that I'll be there for you in the end

hello! i miss blogging a lot ~ here is a brief recap from Valentine's, my birthday, and yesterday. Work is still tiring definitely, but like what my friend Rhea said... everybody has work and has a boss. she even says Sharon Cuneta has a boss and that is Gabby Lopez. what a fabulous example and so I get it now.
<--- Yesterday at John Beatty Comic Book Signing... i also had snacks with my friend Rhea
fashion wise, im getting better at pulling out and mixing clothes from my old wardrobe. i need to dress nice and clean for work because everyone there looks neat and formal : )
This one was last Friday when my Valentine's Day present arrived : )
Here i was yesterday smiling, but deep inside me is IMPATIENCE as azrael lingered and chit chat for almost 5 hours in Comic Odyssey. I had my eyebrows done instead at David's Salon.
With Mariel during my Birthday : )
that's it for now, i have to fall asleep early for tomorrow : ) because everyone needs to work and everyone has a boss. *wink*

To ME --- also congratulations to myself for finishing my first week in GLOBE! weee ~ i was nervous and anxious the whole week, like i might forget what they taught me and i might miss some of the exercises they were sending me and that i might not get there on time. whew!!
we already transferred offices and finally i have my nook to work on the contracts and review and also read my pocketbook heehee : )
I'm so proud and cheers to that! I was expecting visitors but most of them couldn't come so im left with my best bud mariel, misyel, and mark : ) i just prepared my famous spaghetti and ordered 20 pieces of CHICKEN!!! i love chicken. Azrael helped me cook and i had a great time this morning.
so far, i think it's a good birthday. here's to number 22!!! thanks for all the greetings : )

I would eat them!:D I just bought Mega's February issue and i liked what i read inside. All about the latest trends in and out of the country and not the usual fads. Too bad that Preview has no February issue. I am tempted to buy Vogue every month but it costs around Php550 and it's mostly made up of advertisements. maybe next time when i have money to throw away. If you want to save, you can check out Style.com and Vogue's website for some free articles and fashion news and photos fresh from the runway.
Consequentially, i am now itching to find the cheaper alternative to the ensembles i saw on those glossies. Greenhills is far from home but i hope i can go there this weekend : )
And speaking of edible... did you know that i just swallowed a spoonful of tabasco sauce for 1,000 pesos? computer addict gave me a dare last wednesday and 1,000 pesos sounds good to me. i was scared after i gulped it down! it was really hot and i feel that my stomach was burning and my eyes were zooming in like a camera lens. but after awhile, it was gone and i am back to normal, 1,000 pesos richer.
and if there are decent glam fashion magazines there are nasty, cheap, and trashy MEN magazines. AND i just saw one after my dinner because computer addict showed me. it's not FHM or Maxim because at least they have sensible articles and news and they have a software called PHOTOSHOP. this one, if it was edible i'd feed it to the rats.

I am now listening to Bitch Goddess' podcast and it's starting to uplift my spirit. there are a lot of things that i can't wait for. Like one, my new job on Monday and second, I can't wait any longer for my boyfriend to get off the computer and I give up. Perhaps I should learn to play alone (not meant to sound dirty). I resigned from my previous job because i was tired and wanted to spend a LOT of time at home with my family including computer addict. However, i think i should look the other way.
My inner-self is now shouting "I need a playmate!". Or i should just keep myself busy hence, new job. I wish i meet a lot of new people and i wish that i'll be thrown thousands of paperwork or all the work there is. then, i dont have time to think about whoever. "There's no one you can count on but yourself" says Vanessa Williams in Ugly Betty. I think i should swallow that.
Anyway, i got Sex and the City DVDs and also Ugly Betty : ) I watched all that as I was hoping someone would KEEP A PROMISE. I wish there is a training school where we can be taught on how to live with yourself or how to get married to your job and how to treat men like they treat women.
Valentine's Day is SOON, so before it becomes something that I'd be frustrated about... I'm going to reserve a spot in a spa somewhere and confess my love to myself hahaha : ) then MY BIRTHDAY is also SOON. I wish i'd be happier by then! make me!

Too much of Ugly Betty and now I am posting about my dream loveteam. Amanda is the slim and fashionable assistant who sleeps with Daniel and Daniel sleeps with anything that moves. *SPOILER* In episode 5, i felt real bad for Amanda because she really likes Daniel and deep inside, she is patiently waiting for him to stop screwing around. But the two of them are only F-buddies and Daniel doesn't know how Amanda really feels. awwwww. Amanda can be a bitch to Betty sometimes but I think she and Daniel are made for each other! i hope they end up together and just now, Amanda told Daniel she had it and i hope that Daniel realizes his mistakes. : )
I'm counting 5 days before i report to work again and tomorrow is my dental appointment. still working on the root canal to save my molar. then after that, i plan to do a bit of bargain shopping. wish me luck!
i'll also try to buy the complete dvd set of Sex and the City, it might shed some light to my life ahahaha. Samantha (of sex and the city) once said "if you're looking for a relationship, you can bang your head on the wall so just have a lot of sex like a man would do." well, something like that : )
Here's another funny one from Sam : )
Samantha: You men have no idea what we're dealing with down there. Teeth placement and jaw stress and suction and gag reflex and all the while bobbing up and down - moaning and trying to breathe through our noses. Easy? Honey, they don't call it a job for nothin'!

Everyday I sleep at 2am so last night i got lucky to have something to watch on TV. Pretty Woman was being shown in one of the local channels. I used to watch this with my sister Joni, but i wasn't that old yet and didn't pay much attention but i did get the story.
Last night, i savored each line, cheesy but dreamy. you know, this stuff happens only in movies and sometimes, it feels nice to submerge yourself in this fantasy where Julia Roberts is a hooker and Richard Gere billionaire saves her and turns her life around. ahhhhh... happy valentines! i was eating ice cream while it was being shown and i love the experience. me and myself only, dreaming and hoping i can be Vivienne in that movie ahahaha. Pretty Woman is such an unbelievably romantic flick but after the movie you feel bad because it's not real.
I am in PMS hell last night too and slept at 4.30 in the morning. But yin yang again, i finally got a call today and yey! i have a new job ^____^ i almost fainted when i answered my cellphone while i was watching Ugly Betty. now i am excited, nervous, and scared --->
so there, i hope everyone gets a good night and enjoy the rest of today ^.^ i'm now downloading MORE ugly betty episodes and have a marathon with icecream again.

I missed my MCO friends and all of them were present yesterday except for Ate Mean. I was to get my last salary after a very long process of clearance and accounting stuff. So i was there, and i had fun while waiting for azrael. i miss the place so much, the aircon, the internet, my cubiclemate Chong and hollywood gossip. I'm quite happy to see them not so harassed and stressed with work.
That same day, sir chong revealed to me Ugly Betty! and at first i was thinking Betty La Fea sitcom style series but behold, when i saw the first scenes The Devil Wears Prada came to my mind. Ugly Betty who won in the Golden Globes want to work in a magazine just like me! oh well. then she said "Magazine is my passion"... i was all smiles on my seat as all of us peeked at the monitor. Now i am trying to get the other episodes and i hope i do! with my crappy broadband.
<--- EYEBAGS says SAD SAD SAD and wants older sister back in the country
then azrael popped up and off we went to his meeting. before that he treated me to Bacolod Chicken and i remembered my trip to Bacolod with sir chong... it was not so fun but now, i miss it and think it was a great experience after all.
Since it's the start of February, new magazines are out! so i got myself the new Cosmopolitan with Paris Hilton on the cover and Marie Claire. i read these magazines while azrael was having his meeting. Today he is out and i decided to stay home after the taxi ride yesterday along edsa. it was terrible!
that's it for now. i miss everybody and i am getting lonelier each day. they say its because im just bored and have no work. so now i am trying to find a nice new job but im still enjoying waking up late : )

Yey! i am finally able to catch up with Season 3 of Grey's Anatomy. I just watched episode 13 and i can't wait for the next episodes... Meredith and Derek are getting sweeter each day (this is a fictional world after all) and i missed all the surgeons last month. i wish there is a new episode each day.
