Straight ahead, instead of turning back

Whew no updates for a long time! I’ve been quite confused the last time I posted something. My life changed dramatically! I maybe wanted to settle things up before posting anything here. Well, the change that I’m saying is quite confidential and I cannot tell you the story maybe that’s why I wasn’t able to say anything. All I know now is that I am already happy, or sort of. I may not feel what I was experiencing before, but this is a change. I may not say that this is better; all I know is that this is something different. You may wonder what am I saying but I just can’t say it here. I have just moved on. I just felt how college life really means. It is sad. I sometimes still think of the past, I think of it that I was happier back then. But I also realized that sometimes I am happier now. I just haven’t adjusted a hundred percent, only eighty percent I guess.

Here are some of the changes that are not really of being in college, but jut changes in me. We speak English in class, most of the time, and it is getting contagious that everyone in the classroom follows it. I am now disorganized. I don’t plan. I don’t expect. I don’t think of what will happen next (although sometimes I still do). I don’t worry too much on things anymore. I’ve really learnt how to be a happy-go-lucky person. Life is short, and I’m regretting every minute that I’ve wasted.

pink cow vs blue-eared elephant

I had a previous post that featured my elephant-mouse-wrist-rest which was being killed by my friends right? So now I'm teeling you about my new pet. I bought a pink cow to replace my old wrist support! I just loved my old one but it can't extend its life and it might burst in the end! The elephant was from Singapore and has glow-in-the-dark figures inside. Its about a year and 6 months old. My new pet is painted white and pink. weird, but it really is. It doesn't say anything about the manufacturer so I suppose its from China. Here are their pictures.

my upcoming empty christmas

As I was about to enter the house at 6pm, I felt the cool breeze of December air. I said to myself, OMG Christmas is coming, and I’m not even happy. In fact, I am lonely. It is very hard to think of great things when I’m stuck with an unsolved dilemma! *sighs* Normally, I would enjoy the feeling of Christmas time from October-November but December isn’t really a happy-time. Too much celebration makes me sick! I love the preparation for Christmas, and only the preparation itself. I even get excited when I hear Christmas songs being played in department stores as early as October. Having Christmas break also gives me the reason to smile, and that’s about it.It is also the time when I get to see people whom I rarely see, people who are close to my heart but unfortunately not available in other times of the year. It is weird but I always get the feeling of loneliness when it’s Christmas day already. I know it’s not all about gift-giving and Christmas parties which usually makes people, especially children, blissful. It’s more on the meaning of this celebration that makes sense.

2nd sem profs

As of now, I have amazing professors, contrary to last sem’s! I have Mr. Daquila in Marketing, the past teacher or the BABA which they say gives high grades with less effort! Then Mrs. And for Bmath3 and Math6! Yes, same teacher, and she gives additional points for answering her riddles! How cool is that? For Religion4, I have Mr. Tag-at again! I just love him in Religion1! I got 98 without sweat contrary to Mrs Hilado in Religion3 where I got 80 when in fact, I studied Religion the hardest! For Computer Application 2, I’m under Mr. Pahilanag again! As I’ve said in my previous post way back, he is a graduate in Tay Tung and I was under him for IT1. And the last, Dr. Lily Go, an alumna of Tay Tung again. My dad’s batchmate in Tay Tung. I don’t know how is she when it comes to giving of grades, but I’m hoping for the best!

goodbye freetime :'(

I went to two parties last night!

Katrine, Jo-ann and I had our make up done at headship. We were running late! I went home and changed first so I was also the first one to arrive at the venue. I was waiting for them in my car when a guy tried to open my door! I was shocked! Good thing the door was locked! My heart was pumping! I was there for about 30 minutes when they finally came. Spent 2 hours in Justine’s Party when I finally decided to drop by Kristin’s party. So I did. And came there came peter, he was ready to go back to Business Inn because he promised her that he would catch up. I just spent about 5-10 minutes there. Then went back and decided to go to McDonalds, as what we usually do after a party, with all those make-up on! It just completes my day!

I feel so sad right now! I really do! It’s the last day of semestral break and I feel so incomplete. Although I did many things, I still feel lonely! I think I had enough vacation but still! I’m not looking forward to anything so I don’t know! I really want to cry! This is very sad.

exam exam exam

I don’t know what to feel, really. I just can’t wait for the semester to end yet I am not prepared for it either. Haven’t studied anything for tomorrow’s exam! I just don’t feel like studying because it will be the last! And I think I just don’t know how to start! Phew! I had a busy weekend for the pajama debut of Karen and I just needed some sleep so I slept nearly the whole Sunday. My sembreak is so full! I have to leave the day after my exam, which is on Wednesday for the temple event in Cebu. So I’ll be away from Thursday to Sunday. Then I’ll be leaving for manila again on Monday, Oct 22 until Oct 29. And then November 1, one of the much awaited get together of my HS friends. I have some one debut party on Nov 3, and 2 parties on Nov 4! Talking about a hectic schedule! And the enrollment! I will not be here! OMG

Wohoo. Many things to blah about!

First, I got an iphone! Haha It is not my dream phone, nor did I want to get one. But it is a blessing, so I should accept it! Haha! It is not the greatest phone mind you! You can’t forward messages. You can’t take videos. The camera has no flash nor zoom. There is no usermanual! I had to download a PDF from the net. It is only 8gb! Not enough! And then comes the worst part, it has a auto-spellcheck so it corrects every word that is in shortcut, in Filipino or in dialect. I don’t know, maybe I just don’t know how to set those things, but I tried my best! I’ve searched for answers everywhere but no luck. But in overall, not bad. So if ever you’re planning to have an iphone and now you’re thinking twice after reading my entry, don’t believe me, maybe you’ll love it cause I’m just stating my opinion, go figure.

Second, I enjoy playing boxing in Nintendo Wii! Haha It is fun. I just considered that I can actually play the game without hurting myself!

Third, Friendster is cool! It now has Traditional Chinese!

Forth, I hate YahooMessenger! It implemented a limit with the status. It can only accommodate 40 characters! I hate it because I loved changing my status and placing my links before!

Fifth, I hate the fact that exam is coming again! Even though I only have to get about 3 exams for endterm, I just hate studying!

I have changed

Back in High School, I was very responsible. I was very workaholic. I would be doing things that weren’t mine. During events, I was always the first one to arrive, and the last one to leave, especially during fund raising and batch events. I was always excited with everything. I work overtime. I enjoyed. Now, I’ve changed, very much. I think I started my college days as a responsible student but my club, which is greenBees, molded me to be irresponsible.

During the early part of my service, I still had the interest. I still looked forward to our meetings. But as time passed by, I’ve hated it so much. I hate waiting for tardy people. I hate being dictated especially when I think it is injustice. I hate the feeling that I was doing more job than the rest. I find it not good. But, I still attended meetings. I was rarely absent. And everything just wasn’t good until it reached to the point that I told the other officers, I’d quit. I’ve hated it so much.

Now, I’m used to being absent and just having the attendance checked then I go home. I learnt how to enjoy life. Its not that I didn’t enjoy my work in high school, in fact I loved being busy. I love the people that I was working with. I just miss my old classmates. I’m now the typical pasaway student that you’d encounter in college. I hate checking of attendance. What’s to enjoy in school if I don’t like the people I see there often? In fact I have a meeting in Filchinoy now, and I’m absent again. I just don’t want to be there and considering that there are more than a hundred members and only about 10 attend the meeting. And take note, the only students attending are from Tay Tung, my old batchmates, same old people. I find it unfair so I also don’t attend, simple.

Saturday, September 15, 2007


It’s University Days and Kelvin was scheduled to visit Bacolod from Sept 12-15. We were busy with the Filchinoy kiosk and we made a lot of takas from our checking of attendance in our respective subjects. I had a Business Statistics exam 8am on the 12th and he arrived at 1055. Good thing I finished 2 exams in an hour. I was off to set-up the kiosk from 9-1030 then went home to fix my things. I was in the airport at 1045 and the plane had already landed. I expected the PAL flight to be delayed, as always, but it wasn’t. Then Karen and Katrine came later because they had their church service in the morning. After fetching him, we ate lunch at Bob’s Jr. We stayed at the kiosk for a while then checked in at Palmas del mar and played bowling in the afternoon. It was so fun cause it was my first time to play bowling. It’s also Katrine’s first. We ate dinner at chicken house. We actually had a lot of arguments as to where we would eat, because Karen had a different taste than mine.

I can’t be specific with what happened on the other days so I’ll say it randomly. We played bowling for the second time. We ATE a LOT! He always looked forward to where we’ll be eating next! Takaw! Haha! Peace! We tried Mang Inasal( as requested by Karen), Bigby’s, Chicken Deli, Bob’s Café, Pepe’s, Hong Kong Kitchen and McDonalds. I asked him to rate the chicken inasal that he tasted and he chose Chicken House as the best, Mang Inasal is second and Chicken Deli as third. He transferred to Luxur Place because Palmas del mar is a bit far from my house. We loved watching movies! We had Underdog for Thursday, 1408 for Friday and Sinking of Japan today. We had fun during his last hour in Bacolod. After checking in his luggage, we waited for Karen and Katrine in Metro Robinson, or whatever the name is, then we drank hot chocolate cause its Chocolate festival and hot choco was only 10php! Karen was not contented, she even had icy choco. We ate donuts and had a lot of pictures! Then the plan was not to remind him of the time, so he would forget about his 415 flight. So mean! We even pretended that we needed to use the toilet just to waste time! Haha We had our pictures taken inside the male’s cr! Karen even kept his cellphone just before he was entering the departure area. But all that stopping didn’t work! He still wasn’t late! Hehe. I had a lot of fun! Really!

Pictures are posted in my multiply site.

I am very paranoid with grades but I don’t care about studying. I don’t study much during exams but I tend to expect a lot with the results. It is my weakness. I guess I’m not used to be a bookish or a geek. I believe that examination tests what you’ve learnt, not what you’ve just memorized. I hate memorizing. When my expectations fail, I become really depressed, like what’s happening now. I think I have so many problems to think about that worrying about them made my head ache. I worry a lot about my grades. Being in the deans’ list again puts so much pressure on me. Even though I shouldn’t care much about my grades because I already got 83 in Acctg2, taking away the possibility for me to be a cum laude, I still agonize too much.

I realized that doing good at present will pressure me to do better in the future. And if I fail with that expectation, I get miserable. I spent 1 hour earlier just to forget about my Accounting problem. I am not failing, but I just can’t accept that I might end up having a line of 8 grade. Grades aren’t out yet. Meanwhile, my Economics is doing great. I fear that I might expect more on the endterms. To tell you honestly, I got overconfident with my prelim grades because everything turned out so well. Except for my Religion subject which was understandable. Now, I feel that I won’t get much success as what I’ve got for prelim.

parental control

I’ve read YES! Magazine a while ago and I want to quote Cristalle, the 24 year old daughter of Vicki Belo. She said, “My mom never deprived me of anything material, or even her permission for me to do anything. You’ll learn not to take advantage of that because she gives it to you with total trust. Ever since we were small, and then even in hs, ‘Mom, can I go out?’ Diba, ‘yong ibang parents: “no, hindi pwede!’ ang daming rules. So, ano ginagawa ng mga bata? Tumatakas, nagiging pregnant, you know… ‘yong mga gano’n. With me, my mom goes, ‘Go out, go out, magsasawa ka rin!’

I am also like that. I can do what I want. I can go out anytime I want. But I don’t do night outs so they trust me for that. I mean, I can even go out anytime without asking permission because I don’t push the limits. I know very well that I must not come home late because it is the proper thing, so I don’t. I have the freedom so I don’t need consent unlike most of my friends. I consider it as an advantage so I take care of that trust. The more parents’ say no, the more teens will do it.

As for my title, I've been watching Parental Control in ETC and its entertaining.

taro passion

I looooooove taro flavor! Anything goes well with taro. It ranges from taro ice cream, taro milk tea, taro ice, taro pudding, and taro jelly ace! I first developed my passion with Quickly’s taro ice. I would drink it 3 times a day when I was in Manila since Quickly was only available in Manila that time. Then at last! It opened here in Bacolod. But because people were not fond of it, and they don’t appreciate its uniqueness, it closed after some time.

I went to Taiwan during my 6 weeks study tour and they had Quickly everywhere. The problem was, we didn’t know what’s Taro in Chinese until finally we knew its 芋頭 in Chinese. So I was again, enjoying my milk tea often. Back to the Philippines and I missed milk tea very much.

About a year after, we went to Malaysia, and to my surprise, I was surrounded by taro again! This time, with a different name, Yam. They had ice creams! We would eat yam ice cream almost every after meal because our buffet would always include ice creams, chocolate fountain and a lot of cakes!

Until recently, I went to Taiwan again or my 3 weeks tour. I was enjoying every minute of it with the abundance of milk teas! I even ate yam ice cream in Formosan. Hay! Heaven!

Now, I miss Taro badly!

nothing much

I have no words to say except: EXAM ON GOING!

I will just update soon. I hope.

Monday, August 20, 2007


got this from KM

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

What Tarot Card are You?

It also rained all day here in Bacolod that’s why I feel that I’m getting sick. My class ends early every Tuesdays and Thursdays. I go home at 1030 or later if I’m doing something. I went to SM then met my classmates at Lopue's East.

We just had to practice our presentation in Filipino for tomorrow. We chose to present The Buzz with the controversial celebrities today. It was fun! My part was Kris Aquino. And we had commercials in between.

I had a problem getting home because we were practicing in my classmate’s house and my car was parked a bit far. So I had to wait several minutes to let the rain pass. But then, it never did. I just decided to run because it was getting late. So, now I feel I’m sick.

personal stuff

Enough of bad luck and carelessness! I’ve mentioned earlier that I lost my binder, right? Now, today I left my pencil case in w17 this morning and my accounting book and Religion manual in w26 this afternoon. Good thing my classmates gave it to Nissi and my things are with me again. I’m just so careless. I don’t know what’s happening, is it just bad luck? Or it is just my faith? I hope I won’t lost more things in the future!

Tuesday, August 14, 2007


I feel so tired right now. I am just so disappointed with what is happening. First, I lost my binder, where all my notes are written. I just don’t know how to handle it. I write even the itsy-bitsy things that I want to take note of. I can understand it more than anyone else. I just don’t know how to start all over again. Trials, I know.

I am also disappointed with some of my grades. Although I’m thankful that I’ve reached 81 in RS, it just makes me feel sick. This week is just not for me. It started bad. I know it will be bad luck for the rest of the days. I don’t rely on astrology but as curiosity struck me, I’ve browsed through yahoo astrology and I guessed it right. August 14 is not a good day for me. I’m hoping for brighter days ahead of me!

I've been relying on something for the past 3 moths and this failed me, that is why I feel as if its the end of the world.

Thursday, August 9, 2007


Recollection tomorrow! That means no lectures! haha I bought a prepaid simcard from globe because my text usage is excessing from my postpaid limit everytime. So I will just use it for unlimitxting. Prepaid is actually cheaper than postpaid. being unlimited for a month will just cost you 480php. And no joke, it is really worth it. I just can't let go of my postpaid simcard. Maybe soon, we'll see.

I am anticipating to watch several movies namely, bratz, rush hour 3, license to wed, nancy drew, hairspray, daddy day camp, I now pronounce you chuck and larry, who’s your caddy?.

8 random things you do not know about me

飞翔 tagged me about 8 random things. Some close friends already know these. And I already have listed my random facts about me in my friendster account so this will add to it.

1. I sleep early when I have so much to do and I stay up until 3am or so if I have nothing to do. Then the next day, I have a 730am class.

2. I drink lots of coffee during exam week, an average of 3 cups a day.

3. I used to hate accounting because it puts too much pressure on me when I was still majoring it. But now that I shifted to Information Management, I'm starting to love accounting because it is a minor subject and the lesson is easy.

4. I always have a hard time sorting out my bags in my bag hanger. It is very hard to choose which one should stay and which one should go.

5. I hate my red civic. I want a bigger one. A pick-up maybe. haha

6. I don't normally listen to class discussion. I just copy notes and review for a quiz at home. I don't understand the lesson if the test is not yet scheduled, and this always puts me at risk. I know it is bad. I am just too lazy to listen when I know that I can still catch up.

7. I really hate copycats! I can take backstabbers but copycats really boils me.

8. I am a mall person. The mall is my second home. haha or maybe it is my only home.

I am tagging:

I became so sentimental today and I browsed through the pictures and videos from Taiwan. I almost burst in tears again. How sad is it to know that after two months, 67 days to be exact, of being back in the Philippines, we don’t have ym conference anymore. As if it was just a dream. Now we’re back to reality. I really don’t want this to happen, but what can I do? No matter how I want catch up with everyone, it seems impossible now. It is just so different being with those people everyday, spending the whole day with everyone as if that was the only thing left. My life revolved around eating, activities, tour, playing cards, sleeping so late, buying stuff (in short shopping), taking pictures, bus rides, having fun! I felt as if I had no problems to think about. I felt that I left everything in the Philippines and I was enjoying everything! Now it’s different. It is back to reality. I have to face it. It is sad.

I have been dying to learn vector art for ages. Finally! I've done one using photoshop. Though my work is ugly, at least I've learnt something. Here it is.

Sunday, July 15, 2007


I have been busy these past few days, even up to now. It is already exam week! A lot had happen actually. My maternal grandfather died last July 3 then my cousin had her wedding on the 8th. She just had to pursue the wedding even with the situation. Everything had been planned months ago so it would be a drastic action if she will cancel it. And today is the burial. I have been going back and forth to Iloilo this month. My mother is from Iloilo so all the events are there. My grandfather was sick for quite some time already, about 80 days in the hospital. He his already 88, 92 in chinese. His death was already anticipated because of old age. But of course, we were hoping if he could be there in the wedding as well. We are a big family. We are about 50. And we are about to celebrate a grand birthday celebration for him on August. It has been a tradition for us to celebrate his birthday every year. My grandfather’s death was a day before Irene’s birthday. While his burial falls exactly at Karen’s debut. They are my cousins by the way.

mixed week

I’m currently having an unbalanced week. Sometimes, I have too much time and got nothing to do. Often, I’ve got many things to do in so little time. My schedule is really crazy. We still have election and induction for GB and I feel bad about it. Having said that I’ll quit didn’t minimize my burden. I actually have the same load. I already said that I’ll quit being an officer last week and they persuaded me not to. Dadi Michael said that I don’t have to do many things for the preparation for the last activity. He is just asking me to be there, for the sake of the group. So I agreed. I will be a ghost member for the last week of our org.

FYI, this organization is called GreenBees Society, existing for the sake of Freshmen College of Business and Accountancy. Since I’m already a sophie, all we need to do is guide the “new” set of officers and leave, forever. But before that happens, we have to do so many things. But I say it sucks, making me wait 30min-1hr every time we meet. I partly regret being an officer in the org, who doesn’t? From the very first sessions, I already lost interest because of punctuality and attendance problem. I really wasn’t enjoying. It was on the latter part that I just decided to tolerate my suffering because the org will last for about a month or so.

But last week, I broke, I said I’d quit. And they said not to. So I am doing what they said. Just have my name on the list but I do not have to be there all the time. As a matter of fact, we have our election later and I won’t attend. It is my 1st time to be absent, with no valid excuse. I just WANT to be ABSENT. That’s all. I only have class until 1030 but we had a meeting at 12-130 so I waited. Then I don’t have a class afterwards so I don’t like to wait for another 3 hrs because the election will be at 430.. I am sick and tired! If you are concerned with what I am saying here, don’t judge me, because I am just saying my opinion and my feelings. You don’t have to criticize my opinion, ok? I am just so tired!

Well, last Saturday, I just figured that my cabinet was too crowded. So I decided to clean it up. Here! I took a picture of my effort. hehe

life is short

Eighteen years of existence and I felt the urge to say something about it. I know this is kinda late, but I have planned to summarize the significant happenings in my life, I just didn’t have time. I really don’t want to reach the legal age since I am happy being young. But I believe that nothing is permanent, even life. I am so down every time I think about my past, not that it was sad or what. I just want to cry, others call it tears of joy. I think it is essential to grow old, but it is a choice to be old.

I’ve said this many times already but I want to say it again. I feel so blessed of my life that I can’t think of anything more to ask. I know I wasn’t perfect, nor I was angelic to be so blessed by things that others have been asking to have as their own. I know that my family has been a great factor of this life. My friends are part of my well-being. I wasn’t even a perfect friend, although I tried to be good. But still, here they are, they remained the strongest. I chose many to be my close friends, but several also left me. Maybe I had something to do with it, I don’t know. All I know is that I love what I have now, they are the best. They understood my hardships and accepted me for who I am. I am sorry if I had mistakes in that past. I wasn’t that experienced in handling situations.

My mentors molded me for who I am today. I want to thank them for being harsh on me sometimes because those made me stronger. My high school life was the greatest. I won’t trade anything for it. It taught me everything I need to know to become who I am. I don’t know why I get this feeling every time I think of my high school life. It placed a scar in my heart. I can’t say specific situations that are significant. Well for me, everything is.

I have met numerous people through my travels, specifically in Taiwan. I have met true friends two years ago in my 6 weeks tour, but now we are not that connected. I know someday, this will also happen to my 3 weeks tourmates, but I really hope not. It is hard for us keep in touch. Yes, there is technology, but it feels incomplete. I still am sad of the fact that we are not lucky enough to be with you guys when you meet because we are here in the province. I consider of it as a disadvantage, but I think that is reality. I just have to accept that after many years, or even months, the YM conference that we have every night, will fade. Although I can’t do anything about it, I can’t stop reality, nor can’t I bring back time, I just want you to know that it was one of the best parts of my life.

I living a happy life seem too fast, too fast that I didn’t even notice that I am already an adult. Life is short. Live it to the fullest!

i have posted several pictures of my childhood. just visit my multiply site

June 6th

OMG, this is actually the last day that I can proudly say, “hey I’m just seventeen!”. I just can’t believe it. And I just can’t take it. I really don’t want to get older. I just love being young! I am still not stable in many things. I am not enrolled yet. Blaahhhh! I just can’t understand so many things. I hope I can handle those in a click. I just want to say something, before I actually turn legal. I hate it!

What I/we have done in Taiwan:

I am more comfortable in using bulleted posts than paragraph forms. It is more efficient for me. Maybe you have read some of these in my previous post, but in a different category and I think posing it in bulleted form will be clearer. Now, I tell you again about my Taiwan trip.

  • We played pusoydos until the wee hours of the morning.
  • We played pusoydos on the bus, using bottled-water boxes for our table.
  • We shopped at night markets.
  • We took pictures as if it’s our last day on earth.
  • We didn’t sleep regularly in the hotel instead, we sleep in the bus.
  • Converse is so IN.
  • We drank coffee plaza regularly.
  • We ate Doritos nacho cheese often.
  • We drank milktea often too.
  • I had Taro/yam craving.
  • I used my jacket to hide from the sun.
  • We did our own laudry, I mean it, we hand wash.
  • I adored every Schnauzer and Terrier dogs that passed by me.
  • I hardly used my cellphone. Texting is expensive. Only Jovert enjoyed using my phone because he sent mp3’s to his phone.
  • We searched for starbucks.
  • I got the craze of UFO catchers! Got some cute stuff from it.
  • I bought so many colored Hi-Tec “G-Tec”.

Here are some pictures ;)

20 Things I’ve learnt in Taiwan:

I’ve been there for three weeks so I’ve been used to leaving in that way. I’ve been on the 6 weeks tour 2 years ago, so they’re the same banana. Hehe. Got that line from my accounting teacher. Well, let me rephrase my title, “things I’ve mastered in Taiwan” because I’ve already learnt this years ago.

  1. I’ve learnt to eat almost everything using nothing but chopsticks.
  2. I’ve learnt how to do my own laundry.
  3. I’ve learnt how to depend on maps.
  4. I’ve learnt to depend on mrt for my transportation needs. (Although I’m already good in riding mrt 2 years ago, I still got confused when Kelvin asked me to transfer in a wrong stop going to jiantan. Haha. So we waited for another 5 minutes. I wasn’t on my mind that time because I was thinking of buying 3 watches that was worth 3knt each.)
  5. I’ve learnt how to value time. Time is gold.
  6. I’ve learnt how to cherish every moment that is given to me. ( I actually realized this on the end part of my trip)
  7. I’ve learnt how to think of others, on another perspective and not just on my side.
  8. I’ve learnt that having white skin means sacrificing the tour. (Not going with the tour means no exposing myself to the scorching heat of the sun.)
  9. I’ve learnt that coffee has not effect on me. ( I drank coffeeplaza about 3-4 times a day)
  10. I’ve learnt that Doritos Nacho cheese is the food of Spiderman.
  11. I’ve learnt that having long bus ride is good; it can help me catch some sleep.
  12. I’ve learnt that bottled water boxes can be used as tables for pusoy dos games.
  13. I’ve learnt that people get paranoid when many people will be using a common bathroom, so they do it in advance. Some would take a bath at night, some would wake up as early as 4, like us, to beat the crowd. Try to relax, bet, maybe the bathroom will be empty at 7am.
  14. Be careful with money management. Make sure you have money all through out the weekend. It is very hard if you run out of money in a foreign country, on a weekend.
  15. I’ve learnt to be careful with bedbugs. Make sure your bed is safe of insects before sleeping.
  16. I’ve learnt that taxi flagdowns vary in every place in Taiwan.
  17. I’ve learnt not to rush in buying things. There are more stalls through out the night market. Try to canvas prices, but it will normally take time.
  18. I’ve learnt how to bargain using my ID and saying “我是學生”.
  19. I’ve learnt how to bargain using quantity.
  20. I’ve learnt how to control my shopping urge. I actually bought fewer now, than two years back.

I’ll try to post more soon. If I remember saying more.

Taiwan Trip

Well I made a summary cause i don't know exactly how to tell you guys what i feel. But if ever something pops out of my mind, i will just tell you again.

Wooo. No updates for 3 weeks. I don’t know how to start this, but I’ll try to tell you everything I can. It started last May 1. We had this orientation in Liberty Hall, Binondo where we met some of our groupmates. We never expected that the orientation will cause us the whole day, because we planned to go to 168 in the afternoon. So it was all messed up. I even ate at jollibee because there was no McDonalds near our hotel. May 2 was a free day. We initially planned to watch spiderman and go ice-skating at MOA as well. But, we really wanted to visit 168 so we decided to shop there the whole morning and continue to MOA in the afternoon. We had a hard time finding a taxi that would bring us to MOA. We finally ended up having a contract with one taxi. The spiderman movie was cancelled because we didn’t have enough time. We went ice skating for an hour and went home. The next day was the start of our Taiwan tour. Our flight was with China Airlines. When we reached Taiwan, I was excited about everything. I wanted to visit the places that I’ve been to two years ago. Our room assignments were given and we had to fix something. The tour went good. I never kept track of the things we’ve done. I already forgot the things in detailed. All I know is that we had a blast.

We painted lanterns and kites. We made doraemon using clays. But, my doraemon was lost so I don’t have it now. We made grasshoppers using leaves. We made dumplings. We made paper with our own hand print in it. We made paper fans. We rode a two-seater bike. We flew our kites. We visited schools. We played pusoy every night. We went to nightmarkets almost every night. We went to a theme park. We saw the queen’s head. We went to hot springs. We went to Taipei 101, which they claimed to be the tallest building in the world. We had our puppet presentation. We visited museums. We went to sun Moon Lake again. We played Chinese Yoyo. I bought a lot of colored Hi-tec’s…

Then, the worst day came 22nd, our last day. We had this farewell night and I was crying already. My eyes were swelling. We planned not to sleep at all until the 23rd. But when katrine and I got back from the shower, everyone was no where to be found, so we just slept at 5am, woke up at 7am. At 11am, we already need to transfer to the airport. I was not in my normal self that day. I was so lonely. We got into the bus and our yearbooks were distributed. I was not really thinking of anything else, but going home and leaving these folks. I was really sad. I think I was not yet prepared by the fact that this is just a 3 weeks trip. It should end. I was just not prepared that everything ended so fast. Unlike my other farewells, which I thought over several time before the real day.

When we arrived at the airport, I cried again. I was sitting near Jovert and Kelvin in the plane. I was so lonely because they’ve been close to me. Jovert was joking the whole time but it made me even lonelier. Again, I cried several times. He asked us if we wanted to meet up later on, I said yes, but it is difficult for us to meet because of transportation. We planned several times. I was still in tears. I was very affected of the departure because I know that it will be difficult for us, “taga-province” to be with them again. For them maybe it will just be easy, its just a text and a car ride away. For me, it is like goodbye forever. So I was very emotional the whole time. I cried the whole trip. We played pusoy for the last time. The airport moment was very fast. I haven’t even say my goodbye’s to my other friends. Well, if ever anyone of you is reading this, nice meeting you all.

I met a lot of great people that I know I will treasure forever. Thank you for making this trip memorable. You know who you are…

…. And a lot had happened. Don’t want to think of it anymore. It will just make me burst in tears again…

Yeah, I’ve returned two days ago, but busy doing stuffs so didn’t update my blog. I’ve been to Jacklyn’s debut last night. Well, that’s all I can share cause I don’t have anything good to say except for being busy the whole time, figuring out what to pack for our trip. Another thing that keeps me busy is our flight schedule and lounging dilemma. Here are some pictures of Jacklyn’s party. Visit my multiply for a lot more.

I'll be away for four days since I'll be going to Iloilo. I'll surprise my cousin Kevin because it is his birthday tomorrow. It's also part of my plan to visit Iloilo before the summer ends. So, no update from me for the next days folks! I just want to inform you that I'm so confused with my accounts in blogger and in multiply because my posts in blogger synchronize with my multiply's blog. I only use my multiply account for photos because I want to make sure that if ever my computer crashes, at least i have some photos kept in an online site. I consider my blogger account as my main diary and if ever you read posts from multiply, please ignore it, or just continue reading if you like to. Comments are greatly appreciated. :D bye.

she sucks

I have a lot of time now, but I guess I have nothing to say much. I’ve decided not to take up hospitality management and take up information management instead. IM is one of my choices ever since. I just thought about what I want to take last night and it made me feel so pressured and stuck. I really haven’t seen the subjects to take up so I decided to inquire. It just popped in my mind late last night. I thought this is my last chance since I’ll be leaving on Monday. I thought about double-majoring so I asked about how long it will take me to finish HM and IM. The IM dean told me that it will take me about five years so I was not happy about it. I approached another CBA faculty and asked for the course descriptions and requirements of all CBA courses. I found out that HM is practically more of catering, food science and stuff, I wasn’t too interested with that. I read the IM subjects and I got interested with web design and computer graphics & multimedia. So I hurriedly processed my requirements and suffered from extreme heat. Finally, I passed my application and went home. With my current status, I hate someone VERY much that my blood boils every time I think of that person.

new layout

Actually, it is not my plan to change my layout since I stil appreciate my old one. I am not the type who change layout so often. In fact, I hardly change. WIth the fact that I am not good in html and stuff. I made it up last night while talking to someone over the phone. I don't know. It was just my instict to do that. :P

it caught fire

My typical summer day, it has been always like this. I would normally spend a week or two out of the country then after that, I would spend the rest of summer helping out in our electrical company. I started manning our store this week, just got back, Monday. It has always been boring. Good thing we have internet connections so I can spend some time online while suffering from the intensive heat of summer. I answer the phone or act as a cashier. It is an easy job, but boring. I still do it because I don’t have anything good to do at home.

Well today is a normal day for us. I ate out during lunch and shop for an hour or so. Got home tired and feeling dirty of dust and smoke. I am in the mood for sorting out my bags. I have this coat hanger where I hang my bags instead. And it’s so full nowadays that it’s beginning to lean. It’s my leaning-bag-hanger. I finally cleaned up some unwanted bags. I placed all my clutch bags in a plastic and hanged it in another place. I was trying to figure out what to do next when my mom entered my room. She said she was going to our electrical shop because there was fire in a building across the street. I said ok, and shouted that I also wanted to go. I was already wearing my pajamas so I hurriedly put on working clothes and ran to the car. When we reached the area, it wasn’t a big fire. It was already put down by the firemen. We were talking to other familiar people about the happening and they said it was from an internet shop across the street. Good thing it did not spread to the next store, where there are gallons of paint. It might have been worst.

Here is the picture of my hanger
