5 days to go, it will be new year already. time flies fast.
Christmas is finally over. No more midnight work. Finally, I was able to sleep early yesterday and woke up early this morning...hehe.
Last Monday, my friends and I went to Chocolate Bar. Each of us ordered a dessert, different from one another, so that we can try them all at once...hehe. The yummiest was mud max and what Grace ordered...i forgot the name. Mine was not...*sniff*
I visited my dentist last week but she's not in. She'll be back on January. Because my teeth needed attention right away, I went to the 'other' dentist. She did fixed it but it was sooooo slow...I almost slept. I was also planning to let her remove my wisdom tooth but I changed my mind. Sigh, I need to remove my wisdom tooth asap!!! I don't want to let the 'other' dentist do it because she'll charge me double the price at P 5,000, heck, no way! I rather wait till January.

Hindi natuloy yung overnight fieldtrip kc konti lang nagbayad. Kaya, Metro Manila nalang kami. Hay, nag hirap pa akong nagpaalam, metro manila din ang bagsak.
Looking forward to next week. It's our finals week, after last....Christmas vacation....weeee!
I'm glad they liked my artwork, although I didn't like it that much.
Matrabaho 'tong Multimedia course. I've spent most of my time doing projects, plates, etc. I feel I didn't help much in my family. Sigh.

a bad day. sigh. first, I wasn't allowed to go to the field trip kasi may overnight. Kasi naman e, bakit kc overnight yung outing ;_; . bad trip talaga. tapos wrong timing pa ako nag paalam kay Di. This is a very busy season for us. kasi Christmas. Hindi talaga ako papansinin. Laging sasabihin "busy ako, wag mo akong guluhin" o sasabihin agad, "wag na." tanong ko naman kung bakit "wag na"? sagot nya: "kasi overnight". tapos ang usapan.Sigh. Why do I want to go? Kasi may plus grade. 200 points. Eh, kelangan na kelangan ko yun... ;_; sniff. yokong ulitin ang subject noh. pinag-aksayahan ko talaga ng oras yun mga pinapagawa nya sa amin para sa finals. tapos, pinagalitan pa ako ni Di kasi wala akong ginagawa, hindi ako tumutulong sa negosyo, nagtatago daw ako sa kwarto ko, nagbago na daw ako, blah blah blah. Hay... pag sumagot naman ako, sabihin kong may ginagawa ako, para sa finals namin...tatahimik next day, yun ulit ang sasabihin. o kaya tanong nila, "bakit wala pa akong trabaho? bakit hindi ka mag hanap?" hay, ilang beses ko ba dapat ulitin, nag-aaral pa ako!!! at wala pa akong nakitang companya na tumatanggap ng part time!!! Paulit ulit nalang. kuliiiiiiit kuliiiiit kuliiiiiit. Nakakainis na ah. Kaya sinasanay ko ang sarali ko na gawing "pasok sa kaliwang tenga, labas sa kanan" sa mga sermon nila. Isang salita ko lang e, ang dami na nilang sinasabi. Kaya mas magandang wag na akong sumagot. Para wala naring masabi. Period. Tapos ang usapan. Totoo rin yung sinasabi ng psych prof ko sa cksc. Most chinese, pigil mag salita. hindi masabi sabi ang katwiran nila or kung anong gustong isabi. ganyan kasi ang training sa chinese families. wag sasagot sagot sa matanda. Kaya ako, medyo pigil sa salita. Ang dami dami kong gusto sabihin sa utak ko, pro hindi ko masabi. pag nag salita naman ako, sabihing "no respect for elders" ako.
Parehas sila ni Mi at Di. Isang salita lang, ang dami na nyang sagot at explikasyon. hay buhay.
Second, pinagalitan pa ako ng prof kc late. Grabe magalit. d ako makasalita nun. na-super bad trip na talaga ako. e wala akong magagawa kc ako na ang may kasalanan dito argh. Nag pa-late ako ng mga 10 mins para lang magpaalam sa dadi ko na gusto ko sumama sa fieldtrip. Pag dating ko naman sa skul, nakasalubong ko classmates ko. Meron daw pinapagawa si sir. Tanungin daw namin sa classmates naming maaga pumasok. E, ako naman, sige sunod lang. Punta kami sa LRC. Nag tanong ako sa mga classmates kung ano pinagawa. Ang di ko lang natanong kung ano oras dapat bumalik sa classroom. Umalis ako ng LRC extension kc pupunta ako sa LRC-Main...(ndi ko nakita mga classmates ko dun) kaya ayun, nasigawan tuloy akong late. late ako ng 45 mins. D na ako makaimik. Takot na ako e. Ayaw na ayaw ko pa naman pinapagalitan ako. D ko ring masabi na d ko alam na dapat before 935, nasa classroom na.

Parehas kami ni Okia bad trip ngayon. Nag shopping at nanood nalang kami ng "The Matrix" para makalimutan yung mga nangyari sa amin ngayon. Tapos binigyan pa nya ako ng chocolate, pasalubong from japan...wheee ^_____^ .
So far, It was fun. Both of us are trying to crack a joke, but ended up having bloopers. Here's one of her bloopers: While she was buying the japanese cheesecake. She surrendered the receipt to the saleslady. the sales lady asked: "ano po pangalan nyo?" Okia answered: " Cheese"
haha. The saleslady joted it down. Cheese was supposed to be the flavor, not her name...haha! The other customers also laughed.
What if you daughter's name is Cheese? hehehe. Just a random thought.

1 thing I hate about this guy is his arrogance. Sheesh, I'm so unfortunate to have known this guy. He feels like he's very smart and others are not. Likes to make fun of me. Arg!!!@$$#ol* Next time you'll do that, tatarayan na kita. and get far away from you as much as possible. Mahawa pa ako sa kayabangan mo. I hope he'll never be my classmate again!
or am i being overly sensitve here? Argh!!!Nevermind.
Problems. Life wouldn't be the same without it. Without it, life will be a bore, no challenge at all. Would you still have life when you don't face any problems. Look at the dead, they have no problems. Problems are there to help us grow. They make us think of solutions. They help us to be creative. In business, problems are important. If the CEO doesn't have any problems in his company, would there be business? Will the company earn?No, because there's no business in the first place. No resposiblity at all. The CEO did nothing to make his company grow.
Problems can make or break you. If you don't want to find ways to solve it, or you think there's no solution for it, then sorry, you really won't be able to solve it. It's because you already gave up from the very start. A person cannot be labeled as strong if they're not encountered many problems. If a house did not encountered any strong winds, typhoons, or any calamities, would it be labeled as strong? How will you know how strong it is if it is not tested? Read the biographies of influential people, their life did not always sailed smoothly. Everyone started from hardship. People who are afraid to face problems are weak. They will never grow up.
Be challenged and face your problems.
I remembered a beautiful line from Memoirs of Geisha. Not the exact wordings but it goes like this:

There was a general who never lost in a game. He was reputed to be the man who never lost. When asked what is his secret, he replied: "I never defeated the man, but I defeated his confidence."

That is something.
I watched "A Beautiful Mind" yesterday. It is a great story. A really really smart but schizophrenic(sp?) guy who contributed a lot to our society. I was teary-eyed at the end of the movie. Just imagine the harships he has gone through. The society condemned him. The students mocked him. He only had his wife with him all the time. But at the end, he is respected, honored and recognized by the people for his work.

Current Mood: Fine

Ah, finally, Someone made my day. ^_^ My prof would probably excuse me from his class for the rest of the term! How's that for a happy thought! It's because I already took that subject from CKSC. All I have to do is show proof that I already took the subject and maybe take a comprehensive exam, then that's it! I'm free on Friday! ^_^
Being sensitive is very very bad for me.
Yesterday has passed and I only have today to live and the future to look forward to. I have to constantly remind myself not to look back that often.

Thursday, October 23, 2003

Current mood: depressed.

I don't feel like working on my project. ¬_¬ I don't feel at ease. I don't feel at home with my groupmates. One reason is that I don't know them personally. Another is I prefer to work alone. Can't think properly and can't do things right. What's wrong with me? Sometimes, I wonder if I'm doing the right thing. Sometimes, I think I should not be in school...

Today's bible verse for me
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways, acknowledge him and he will make your path straight."
- (forgot where it is found in the bible)

(Sumarization the past few weeks...hehe)

Joined Friendster just last last week. I'm getting addicted to it. More so, I learned something from old/new friends.
Nothing much to do lately. I'm just in Divisoria hanging around. My aunt from China asked me to take care of her lingerie store for a week because a certain government agency is after them ( peeps from China who has business in Divisoria Mall), as usual, asking for "legal papers" short, money...lagay...tsktsk. Poor Philippines. How will it improve if it is run by these kind of people.
Met some new friends....weeee. I'm glad to have the opportunity to meet them and spend time with them. One is fun to be with, the other is talented in drawing and sometimes, kulit...hehe

First day of school (Sept 15), two words to summarize it: CULTURE SHOCKED

1. I am used to see Chinese people around me. Yes, I wasn't expecting plenty of Chinese in school because it's a Filipino school. But then, my eyes are used to see Chinese peeps.

2. I felt uncomfortable with the people in school. I felt out of place. (But thank goodness, at least I found one person I am comfortable with.)

3. I don't know anyone and I feel nervous.

4. (Heard from the teacher telling a story) There are cases in csb which I never had heard of happening in cksc.


After 2 weeks

I'm feeling good. I'm getting used to it. ^_^ I'm also beginning to love my subjects especially COLORTE and DRAFTNG. Weeee~


Earthquake in Japan. I hope Aiks and her dad are OK and are far from the affected areas.


Bazaar again Today ;_; I just hope we'll have good sales


Training to become a wine salesman. ¬_¬; (doesn't suit my shy and quiet personality to become a salesman though, but I will try to become one.)

Conscious: Bowling with my friends last saturday was fun! hehe. I did a lot of spares and strikes. I was the highest scorer. I didn't expect myself to be that good in bowling because I know I really suck at it...ehehe. Furthermore, the ambience was great. Disco lights were dancing around, bowling pins were glowing and the music was great. Nice gimmick to justify an expensive fee, Heh!

Subconscious: Ok, I did a little bit of exaggerating. I only did a couple of strikes and a few spares. Lolo (not gramps. it's just a nick of my friend.) was the highest scorer in the first game, and I, in the second game. ^_^; The games made a hole in my wallet. *sniff* I think I shall never play there again.

C: I've been attending French class this past few weeks. I'm still having a hard time studying it. Drats, why is it so hard to learn French?

SC: Patience and practice. That's what I need. Learn the language step by step and try to speak French at home (never mind if I sound crazy. lol).

C: Yosh! School's gonna start by next week. Oh boy, I'm getting excited.

SC: Right. That means I will be getting home late. What an ugly schedule I got! Hmp!

Today, I ate like a king ^_^. I had a hearty buffet breakfast at a first class hotel. The best part about it is that we don't have to pay a cent because it was sponsored. There's the usual breakfast food items: hash brown, corned beef, bacon, Milk and cereal, gourmet breads, juices etc..and oooh...I tried this Swiss museilli (sp?) ah..... Imagine a variety of mouth watering foods prepared by world class chefs...whoa....hehehe. I ate to my heart and stomach's contentment.
Life taste good, when there's food. Taste best when, not a cent spent. (trying to rhyme ehehehe...^_^;;;)

I have to wake up at 4:30 early in the morning (and I wanted to continue sleeping then) just to accompany my dad to bring a visitor to the airport. And I say, it's all worth it because of (read above paragraph ^_^;)

Today's my birthday=p I almost forgot^_^;; I am not going to celebrate it today, but next week together with Grace, after Aiks arrived in the Philippines. Celebration isn't complete without her.^_^

Monday, July 28, 2003

I saw my former biology professor Dr. Go! I was happy to see him again. He's one of my favorite professors at the Chiang Kai Shek College. Yes, I must be weird for having him on my list. He ain't that bad anyway. My friends hate him. Some students hate him. It's because of his unerving attitude. He'll loudly embarass the student in front of the class when he's annoyed with the student's action. I got to be his victim once or maybe twice. The first was he saw me snickering while others were serious (I don't remember why I was snickering back then but I know there's a valid reason ^_^) then he suddenly accused me of insanty. Saying I'm laughing while others were dead serious. I must be sira ulo or crazy, and needed to be placed in a psychiatric ward. Second, I was almost always late for his 7 AM class (imagine taking an early jeepney ride from Makati to Tondo, Manila everyday. Very far indeed) He'll lock the door when he wants to.

Despite all that, I see him as a great professor. He knows his topic well, he discuss the topic in a way everybody (at least for me) understands. I learned a lot from him. I was a very industrious student during that time...^_^; Always at the library doing assignments (because I'm afraid of recitation. He'll call students to recite randomly. If you can't answer, you're doomed.)

Before everything started, The phone ring woke me up from my deep slumber. A customer, identified himself as Dr. Go, looking for my mom. Asking where she is, and the location of our house. After hearing Makati, he suggested to deliver the wines to his place, Dasmarinas Village. I had no idea who he was.

The next thing I did was to chat with my brother on the opposite side of the earth. I can hear my sister calling me, telling me to get ready because we're the one's who'll be opening the Makati store today. We're late (as usual). Then, the phone rings. It's mom, telling me to go to Divisoria to bring something. O oh, sis has to open the store by herself. Tsk Tsk.

Shortly after I accomplished the task, I asked my mother about Dr. Go. She showed me his business card, and to my surprise, It's my former professor! Asst. to the Consul General of Rep. of Vanuatu.

So I joined the delivery to see ang greet him. It was a nice meeting. Happy!!! Too bad, he didn't remember my name, but I know, I looked familiar to him.

My social life is dead! I haven't met nor heard from my friends for this month. They didn't bother to call me because they know I'm watching TV every night ^_^; I'm automatically glued on TV then 7pm strikes. Know what I'm watching? It's Ranma1/2 and Huan Zhu Ge Ge (Princess Returning Pearl) What about it? It's darn funny, especially Ranma1/2. Huan Zhu Ge Ge, on the other hand, is unpredictable. Sometimes, Little Swallow's character is annoying (but I still like her, nevertheless). She keeps on minding other people's business. Always run into trouble and able to slide through it. A ditsy girl, she is.

But do I miss my friends? Of course I do! I miss the saturday movie nights. I miss their jokes. I miss their stories, I miss their company ;_;

As Aiks would put it, "COMPUTER OR ME!" or " TV OR ME!" I would choose TV or COMP. bwehehhe. But that's only a joke.

Now, I don't have the right to complain why my social life is dead. Because it's all my own doing.

Im planning to go back to school ^_^ Yeah! I want to take a second course.

Aiya, these past 4 years, I've been wasting my time studying a course (Marketing) that I don't really like. As if it was my first choice. I was a former Accountancy student. But I shifted due to I did not pass in the qualifying exam. Sigh. I still love accounting up to now.

I will be taking Multimedia Arts. Reasons: I have thoughts of taking a second course (preferably computer course) since last year. My choices are either programming or multimedia. I do like to learn how to use JAVA, V.Basic, C++ languages, but I don't have the patience to learn these things (ya know, im a typical youth of today who wants anything instant :D). Multimedia arts is less complex. It's fun to play with adobe photoshop. And lastly, I can bring this to Canada (tho i have to study again, i guess).

I can imagine myself doing flyers, brochures, advertising materials etc. in the future.

Not a bad choice. ^_^

I just hope the school will credit all of my minor subjects. (an impossibility)
But I don't mind if they didn't credit ACCT 102 & 304. I would love to take it again. Just don't let me take Filipino subjects^_^;;;

I wonder what happened to Aik's boyfriend. A sudden change of attitude, but to a better one. ^_^
Hopefully, that is for good.

Sunday, June 22, 2003

Monday: Went to Redwood office.
Tuesday: Home
Wednesday: Home
Thursday: Home
Friday: Home; Greenbelt 1, watched Punch Drunk Love. Sheesh, It's a bad show. Bad music background. Bad story.
Saturday: Home
Sunday: Church, home
To sum it all, I did nothing for the week. Just read books and played piano. I'm bored

Thursday, June 12, 2003

This week is a disaster ;_; I got sick that I thought I would die. I feel my head was bursting. I'm not yet completely healed. I still have cough with phlegm. Ugh.

Friday, June 06, 2003

I went to Unimart yesterday for collection and I remembered a friend who lives in San Juan. I thought of texting her to inform her that I was there so that we can hang out (read:shop for clothes) on the spot ^_^. Interesting enough, she was also in Unimart doing her shopping. We met there and exchange hello's and we'll meet tomorrow for Elsa's birthday treat.

Friday, May 30, 2003

Visited my relatives who live in Manila this week. I haven't seen them for quite some time. I also learned more about their lives.
Aiks, Je and I were supposed to go to WTC, but it was cancelled ;_; Too bad.
Next saturday, birthday celebrant Elsa will treat us for dinner. weeeeee!

Thursday, May 22, 2003

Contract signing tomorrow. ^_^ I will be officially an agent of sunlife.

I wonder how long will I last here....heehee. We did a role play earlier and I did it badly ^_^; I can't answer their objections properly. I would just say anything that comes to mind.

I'll have to practice it to my friends....hehehe

Gambare!!! Chia iow!

Monday, May 19, 2003

Thankfully, I got lots people who support me ^_^ while im in this field. If not, I'm already outta here. Im talking about being an insurance agent.
A lot of people have negative perception of life insurance. I told my friends that I've entered life insurance business, then they told to stay away from them, jokingly. Hah, they won't get away from me...bwehehehehe. >:)
Being a life insurance agent is a challenge, espcially for me.
I don't know why am i here ???
It's so hot!!!

My manager and I went to see a client today in Divisoria. She was teaching me how to handle objections, how to make a sale. Argh, I suggested the wrong place to talk about business. I didn't even think about how noisy the foodcourt was! I just knew it's cooler inside the mall.

I wasn't able to observe carefully :bonks head: ^_^;;

Anyway, it is finished.

Friday, May 16, 2003

Looks like my license will be released on June ;_; I need it now! Peeps of cksc, do hurry transcript *pretty please*

Thursday, May 15, 2003 first post here ^_^
We went to Quiapo to pick up the tripod and ask about the problem with my camera (but nothing wrong with it).
Dad bought me a new camera as a graduation gift last Monday.
Happy happy happy ^_^
