Happy New Year, nga ba?!

December 31, 2010

Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011! [insert sinturon ni Hudas at Super Lolo sound effects here]

Parang ang bilis lumipas ng taon ah. Parang kelan lang eh January pa lang. It feels like yesterday! Pero mas ok na din siguro na matapos ang taon na to. This year has not been so good for me. January pa lang kasi eh medyo may major major sablay na desisyon  na akong nagawa. Kung ano man yun, malalaman nyo rin sa takdang panahon. Element of suspense ika nga!

But this year also brought some good things to me. Syempre di naman lahat ng nangyari sa kin eh matuturing kong kamalasan. Kung nagkataon eh matagal ko nang kinitil ang sarili kong buhay! Ganun raw kasi talaga ang mga cute mataas ang suicidal tendency. Woot!

Anyways, there are some things that happened this year that I should be thankful for.

First, I celebrated my 25th year of existence this year. Hay, I’m not getting any younger. Pero alam ko na iniisip mo. Mukha lang akong 21 di ba? Para kasing bumabata ako every year eh. Parang si Benjamin Button lang. Hehe. Nagcelebrate lang ako kasama ang pamilya at mga kaibigan ko. Salamat sa mga nagbigay ng gift at dun sa mga di nagbigay di na kayo invited next year.

Of course, I should also be thankful kasi nandyan ang family ko. They’re all okay especially my ermat who was hospitalized last year. Wala akong ibang hiniling kay God bago ako matulog kundi panatilihing maayos ang pamilya ko. Good health and long life. Malaking blessing na sa kin yun.

Thankful din ako kasi nandyan ang mga kaibigan ko. Maraming salamat at mga single din kayo! Apir! Malaking tulong yun para di ako maging bitter. At least di ako napipressure magkagelpren. LOL.  But don’t worry guys, we’ll fall in love with the right person at the right time. Have faith! Hehe.

Syempre dapat ko din ipagpasamalat kasi hanggang ngayon may trabaho pa rin ako. One and a half years na ko sa company namin. So far so good naman. Nakakasawa minsan magtake ng calls pero I have to deal with it. Call center ang pinasukan ko kaya wala akong choice kundi tumanggap ng calls. Buti sana kung callboy at tatambay lang ako sa isang kanto at maghihintay ng pipick-up sa kin. Woot!  

Salamat na rin at medyo nag-iba ang job assignment ko bago matapos ang taon. Nung 22 lang eh nagsimula akong maging Sales Verifier sa account namin. Less pressure kasi di ko kelangang problemahin ang stats ko bilang agent. Kelangan ko lang magverify ng validity ng sales at imeet syempre ang number of calls na dapat naming imonitor araw-araw. Medyo ok naman for a change.

Olrayt din kasi nabili ko na rin finally si Mini. Di sya prosti ha. Yan ang name ng bago kong netbook, HP Mini. Naubos ang 13th month pay ko sa kanya pero no regrets naman kasi ang cute nya. I rewarded myself with a new gadget which I think would benefit me a lot. Mas convenient na sa kin ngayon ang pagbablog at pagbabrowse ng porn sites. Joke! Kaso may isa pang problema, di pa ko nakabili ng mobile broadband. Kung sino man ang may mabuting kalooban dyan, bigyan nyo ko please…haha!

Ayos na ayos din kasi sa pagpasok ng bagong taon, ako ay nakabakasyon. Kumusta naman ang rhyme? Oh yes, nakaleave ako from January 3-7. Nine days akong wala sa office kasama ang 4 days na off ko. Longest vacation I ever had! Uuwi ako sa hometown ng parents ko sa Leyte for a family reunion at dahil na rin sa death anniversary ng lola ko. Konting pasyal na rin at eyeball with old friends. Kelangan ko din kasing magunwind dahil sobrang dami naming workload sa January.

At syempre pa gusto din kitang pasalamatan. Oo, ikaw na nagbabasa ng post na to ngayon sa walang-sawa mong pagdalaw sa blog na to. Maraming salamat sayo kaibigang blogger at naging kasama kita buong taon! More blogging years to come! Happy New Year, bloggers! Cheers!

Survivor Zambales: Pa-Celebrity Showdown Day 2 & 3

December 6, 2010

We enjoyed our first day in Nagsasa Cove in Zambales. I could say it’s one of the best islands I’ve been to so far. We initially planned to stay in Anawangin but it wasn’t a bad idea that we stayed in Nagsasa Cove instead.

Our second day in Nagsasa Cove started just fine. I woke up as early as 4PM. I suddenly realized I slept on the table under the pine trees but I could barely remember what happened the other night. I was glad though because I had no hangover. Others were still asleep so I just decided to hangout in the cottage and walk though the shore. It has always been a nice feeling to walk by the shore as waves rush through it. It’s like I’m shooting a music video. woot!

After few minutes the group came out of their tents and we  then prepared for breakfast. We only had coffee, cup noodles,and bread. After taking breakfast, we then roamed around the place to have a view of the sunrise. We had our pic taken everywhere! Yeah, camwhores! The sun was burning us to a crisp but that didn’t stop from enjoying it was already early noon when we got tired of striking poses.

After lunch, we started my favorite part: the inuman session. We brought bottles of Tequila all the way from Manila. (kelangan may rhyme?) Two bottles of tequila didn’t suffice so we added GSM Blue which costs P100 each in the island. No choice because there’s no effin way we can buy tequila there.

We decided to go skinny-dipping swimming before sunset so we just brought the drinks to the shore and continued our drinking stints there. Inuman on the beach while watching the sun set was classic. But one thing I didn’t like was that the water was too shallow for me. I had to go farther to get a good swim.

It was already dark when we left the shore. We just had dinner and continued the drinking session afterwards. We gathered around the bonfire that we made out of the dried twigs and leaves of pines. I also got to try to smoke shisha that Buck brought. We had a good time talking about everything under the moon and answering JP’s survey questions.  LOL. I lied down on the sand while waiting for my shot but I dozed off in no time. I was in deep sleep that they can’t wake me up to they decided JP to lift me to the tent. Errr…

The boatmen are scheduled to pick us up at 7AM so we left Nagsasa Cove as early as 9PM. Yeah, we let them wait. Lol. We headed for our next destination: Anawangin Island. We missed to check the place on our first day in Zambales so we asked the boatmen to make a quick stopover. We only stayed there for 30 minutes so we had a quick photo op and sight-seeing. I was just saddened because I never got to try trekking in the hill near the area.

We also initially planned to drop by Capones Island but we ran out of time because it was already noon and we have to be back in Manila before night. It saddened me because I heard many good things about Capones and I think it would have been a great experience if we were able to drop by.

Anyways, there has been safety precautions as well because we heard a group of travelers failed to check the island because of rough waters along the  way. Proceeding with the plan would mean buwis-buhay! Woot! Perhaps we’ll just spend more days and check Capones next time. Besides, our first time in Zambales won’t definitely be the last. I can’t wait to revisit the place where the sun meets the sky (as the sign somewhere in Zambales says).
