OUR LAST SUMMER…IN PARIS

For quite a while last year, before summer…Rolex & I have been frenzy about Les Miserables (well, he started it all). First, we watched the movie starring Liam Neeson and Uma Thurman, then we would lull ourselves to sleep playing the 10th and 25th anniversary concert where our very own Pinay pride, Lea Salonga played […] CONTINUE READING →

LITTLE THINGS, BIG THANK YOU’S

Last Tuesday, to say that I was furious is an understatement. In fact, I might appeal appear calm, but I have killed someone 13 times in my mind. It has something to do with work. I will say it straight, my salary increment was understated! Imagine??? What makes it more dreadful is the person/persons responsible for […] CONTINUE READING →

THE YEAR THAT WAS…2011

 In the Land of Kaugahan, New Year is no big deal. No fireworks…nothing. But looking back, 2011 in the Land of Kaugahan was not really that “uga” after all. The year 2011 brought me and Rolex to great places we never thought we would be. 2011 was full of both non-sense and amazing experiences…melancholic and […] CONTINUE READING →

HOW DID YOU SPEND JESUS’ BIRTHDAY?

Thanks for the unprecedented powers of technology, we were able to spend noche buena with our families live via satellite ( Philippines + Oman + England…and soon + Canada + Australia ). I pray that one day I can be with my favorite people at the same place on the same time so I won't […] CONTINUE READING →

BISAYA RAY MAKASABOT

So early in the morning, I am already pissed off at work. Busy-busyhan ang drama coz may Board Meeting ako bukas. The phone rang, it was a transfered call from the Front Office. May sumagot, Pinay…uy! Hello Kabayan was her greeting. I asked her from what company, sagot nya "Freelance" daw (taray!) Gusto daw nya […] CONTINUE READING →

Meet Sultana

My sister named hers Charlotte…a friend gave the name Charlie to one. Back home, my bff and I gave the name TBB to Rolex’s…not just because its plate starts with those letters but TBB stands for Taba Baboy si Bernard! Now, Rolex (aka as Bernard) and I named ours “Sultana”. Its red and therefore she’s […] CONTINUE READING →

MY WISHLIST BEGINS

I was a little pissed off with Rolex last night. He brought up a conversation over dinner which I was not liking at that time. Buti na lang tapos na ako kumain so naubos ko ang rice at pinakbet na niluto ko (read: NILUTO KO!). After we freshen up for bed, he was making pa-cute […] CONTINUE READING →

BE SPECIFIC

Once upon a time, I lived in a semi-posh subdivision in the city…gated and with "manong guards" at the 2 entrances and "manong guards" roaming around at night. We have neighbors whose homes are massive and there was this one house which I adore simply because there were gigantic palm trees on its frontyard, so […] CONTINUE READING →

ISN’T IT IRONIC?

Once upon a time,Rolex and I went to a party. After 12 midnight, I went home sober and Rolex went home drunk, he can barely remember how he got home. Why? He had a showdown (exaggeration) of drinking a full bottle of Scotch whisky with a Scottish man. What do you expect? Now, this Scottish […] CONTINUE READING →

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN

 This video went viral. Very good digital campaign Coca-cola! Congratulations!As far as I can remember, Coke is my favorite drink from the moment I was allowed to drink it. But it makes me wonder…why Pepsi tastes better in Europe and in the Middle East? I swear…but in Pnas Pepsi tastes like beautified Pop Cola. …Going […] CONTINUE READING →

DDOS ATTACK

 Livejournal has been a pain in the *ss for how many days now! My ads are not appearing for a month now and still no solution. Now, its under DDOS attack. I do not know what it is, I am just familiar with DDS (Davao Death Squad). Im so behind with my posts because I […] CONTINUE READING →

THE GIFT OF LIFE

It is not easy to be a woman. Our monthly periods (not to mention the monthly PMS) is a constant reminder why it isn't easy at all. Missing your period is even a mixed emotion…while some are happy others aren't, right? Moving in to the Land of Kaugahan from the Land of Democracy (Pnas) even […] CONTINUE READING →

STEAMING HAWT

I grew up having househelp around. Ako'y isang babe na hindi marunong magluto, maglaba, mamalantsa, maglinis etc. In short, in the world of Stepford Wives, I will not be allowed simply because I am not just domesticated (but sophisticated! choz!) but I am among other things…(vampire laugh). Pero hindi naman ako pala-utos. I am comfortable […] CONTINUE READING →

METRO IPAD EDITION

I am not "techy" simply because I know I am a "jinx". The first time I bought myself a laptop (Sony Vaio), the charger conked out on my first use. In fact, I am not just a technology jinx but I am one among other things. That's the very reason why I am not fond […] CONTINUE READING →

MY TAXI, MY FRIENDENEMY!

Welcome aboard! This is the Land of the Kaugahan where taxis are not metered…where your fare is mainly base on the number of roundabouts you passed by…where a taxi is like a jeep in Pnas where the driver can pick up other passengers along the road or you can "engage" it as what they call […] CONTINUE READING →

MAC & ME

My first encounter with a Mac computer was in college…first year college (circa 1996) for our EDP 111 subject simply known as "typing class". The Mac computer looks like this then.photo credit: dishinwithedna.wordpress.com In order to get high marks, of course you have to be fast and accurate in the typing exercises. Damn! Im such […] CONTINUE READING →
