GROWN-UP CHRISTMAS LISTMichael Buble Version
Do you remember me?I sat upon your kneeI wrote to you with childhood fantasiesWell, I’m all grown-up nowCan you still help somehow?I’m not a child, but my heart still can dream
So here’s my lifelong wishMy grown-up Christmas listNot for myself, but for a world in need
No more lives torn apartThat wars would never startAnd time would heal all heartsEvery man would have a friendThat right would always winAnd love would never endThis is my grown-up Christmas list
What is this illusion called the innocence of youth?Maybe only in that blind belief can we ever find the truth
No more lives torn apartThat wars would never startAnd time would heal our heartsEvery man would have a friendThat right would always winAnd love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas listThis is my only lifelong wishThis is my grown-up Christmas list

I honestly like last year's theme, so Filipino. It featured how Christianity came to the Philippines, complete with Magellan, lapu lapu, the big boat, Sto. Nino... the works.
Have you shopped in Greenhills?

It was my first time, so I didn't know how to react. Good thing our company car personnel rescued me from making a fool out of myself. Honestly I was a hairline away form crying. Yeah, I do cry sometimes.
I'm just so thankful to that person for coming to my rescue. He assured me that its quite normal and almost all have gone through an ordeal such as mine. Good thing no one was hurt, that was most important. The damage to the car wasn't that big, though one would have a hard time opening the car hood, hehe.
Well, I do hope I get to have my car before Christmas...
Getting to Singapore was rather unusually quiet. Void of any drama, minus all the fireworks. I had an investigator's meeting and some went a day earlier so I had to show them around since it was their first time. The night of our first day, I had a fever. Possibly due to the exhaustion that I felt. I was shivering and couldn't sleep, thus I decided to get some artificial heat in the hotel's sauna, which did my fever quite well, coupled with a dose of acetaminophen.
The meeting commenced the next day and ended last saturday. During those times, I didn't know that a big (well, not really, just an exhagerated hype by the govt.) commotion was going on back home in the Philippines (let's save that for another post). So, no curfew for me, just four days of meeting, shopping, and strolling around SG.
Now, coming home was quite special. Those who know me personally would know that my trips would always include some misadventure of some sort. Well, this was different. I was upgraded to business class (hahaha!). It turns out that they accidentally had double checked a couple of passengers in one seat, and I was one of them. So they had to transfer one to business class, again it was me. So another first good weird thing that happened.
I hope new year would also be filled with good surprises.
(till next ish, I'm still rather incoherent)

You are 69% Bumblebee!
As an Autobot spy, Bumblebee is the ultimate robot in disguise. What he lacks in size and strength, he makes up for with courage. He enjoys the company of humans and would do anything for his Earthly friends.
Like Bumblebee, you are good by nature. But beware because mischievous thoughts sometimes tempt you. You want to be a leader and show some promise, but you have much to learn. In addition, you use technology when you need to, but you do not embrace the latest trends.

But here are some of the stuffs that I'm currently craving for:
1. Lacoste Hot play for men (nice citrus scent)
2. Any techie stuffs: but here are some examples
a. Mac notebook: a friend told me that instead of buying the usual one, just buy the titanium one.
b. an iPod and a Sony PsP (slim one)
c. a palm pilot, whatever brand it is , I'm happy
d. hmmm again, whatever techie stuff
3. Of course, a car. I really get pissed off when I see kids my age driving a BMW. bitter bitter me.

I got hit on the head and realised that its not worth my time to sulk and be miserable about life. I've stopped blogging even before I actually started, but now, I'm back. Somehow, I've learned how to deal with the pressure at work, the pressures in life... well the list goes on but let's not dwell on them, but instead let's celebrate life.
Let me first count all the good things that I've taken for granted before...
1. I've got tons of work. This would only mean that I have something to feed myself and myfamily. There are a lot of people trying to look for work, but couldn't find one. Though there are times when I feel like I don't belong to where I am right now, or at least in this kind of work that I do. The only reason that gets me going on is that somehow I know that God placed me here. Things just fell into place without me planning it. So I guess the only way that I can be fruitful in whatever I do is to acknowledge Him in all things I do. I don't know where I am going, but knowing that God knows where to put me gives me peace.
2. I've got lots of bills to pay. I have this organizer where there's a divider containing one envelope per section. Each envelope would have a label that reads all the things that I have to set money aside for. Each would give a bid dent on my savings but still I try to look at what each dent means. One envelope would read Phone bills, which only means that I have the "convinience in communication". Another would read Jay and Jet to which I place an amount for their school tuition fee. This got me to realise that I am blessed with the means to help my brothers in getting a good education, a priceless treasure one parent or...
to be continued... my partner is calling me

Yes, 'twas my birthday last week. Unfortunately, I spent my birthday working. I had to stay in a hotel, far away from relatives. Good thing, I had one of my colleagues to accompany me on this trip. She was kind enough to inform the hotel crew of my getting older and demanded... yes demanded that something must and should be prepared for me. 'Twas kinda wierd as it seems that the hotel sounded like it wasn't used to greeting its guests (on any occassion unless they reserved a function room for a party or something). But like I said, my friend was very determined and demanded that a cake be sent to my room by 7:00 am. (check out the cake, pure black native chocolate, or at least that's how it tasted... yuuuummmmm!).
We celebrated my birthday, though we were working, by eating... no, make that globbering some food. haha! A day before, we went to Golden Cowrie in Cebu. I wasn't able to take pictures so I'll just borrow some from wordpress.
The restaurant served it with a very unusual plate. It was kind of made of capiz (white sea shell)with a golden cowrie printed on top, but it wasn't cut out like a soup bowl or would have a reservoir for liquid food. It was plain flat which I first mistook for a placemat rather than a plate. Then they would place a newly heated banana leaf on top of the capiz plate. It was a new experience... and it was great! The food was delish! But I did wish we could've ordered more so that i could have tasted more dishes. I guess there could still be next time.
BTW, I'm now 24!!!!!!!!!
Till next ish!

I was looking for cool art stuffs to include in my hard drive collection to use in some of my presentations, desktop screen, and this bare blog. A colleague of mine shared some cartoons she came across. Here's one of my favorites:
I've made a bit of research on the artist also to look for more of his sketches since I found his art really good. I'm an art lover, though I'm not really an expert since my growing up years geared towards the medical field and somewhat erased what little talent I have in the things I love most, music and art. Just a little background on my new find: The artisit's name is Jeff Thomas and his art is more like a mixture of anime and his own style. I'll do research more about the artisit and his art if anyone requests for it, but if you're really interested, here are his websites:
I've also added a link below blog page. I don't know if I could use his art to paste in my blog as I would assume he might have made some copyright or something.
