i have never worked on a sunday...it is only now that i work for a call center that i have been deprived of my weekends. i miss going out on saturday nights...i miss watching the showbiz oriented shows on sundays because by the time i wake up i only have time to take a bath and eat dinner and then im out of the house since i have to be in the office before 8pm. and because i get home before 7am on a sunday, i don't get to go to church also which i know is bad (very bad). to compensate with my sad feeling of not being able to go out on sunday, i buy myself coffee. pero parang di pa din fair diba?

but i don't want to complain. i can't say that i like what i am doing right now. i sure am having fun because i like the friends i have at work. but i don't know if i can do this for a long time. i think that i am still blessed because i have a job. that every two weeks i have money in my atm account and i am thankful for all the blessings i have.

i miss watching movies and my dvds. i haven't bought a dvd for more than two months already which is good actually. it's a good thing that star world and axn have replays of their shows in the afternoon and because of that i am able to watch the shows that i miss. i am happy also that i get to watch eat bulaga, the bulagaan portion is very funny--i love it when gladys guevarra impersonates annabelle rama. it feels like you see tita grace on tv too (hehehehe!). jose is so funny when he impersonates bamboo...buang talaga!

it's past 3 in the morning, i have an hour and a half to go before i can go home. i have to go to work for the next 2 days and then finally it's my day off again. can't wait for wednesday. PLUS! im glad i have my sunday back next week...yes! i don't have to go to work next sunday! we have team building on monday and because of that, day off for next week will be sun and monday. *yehey*

i am ranting...i really have nothing to do. im bored...tried the neopets, but after sometime it bored me too. may bad news...amp! will post again later...

121 Sta.Catalina
long post ahead... a trip down memory lane.

naalala ko pa nung....

-tuwing hapon, maglalaro kmi ng cops and robbers sa garage. it was not the usual cops and robbers. you have to make sure na if you are playing you wear an old shirt. kasi after the game, beyond recognition na ang t-shirt mo. ang mga players nun, si ate peach, si jepoy, si borloks, si mimi, si bibing, si tems, di ko na matandaan ang ibang pang players.

-after the 1992 earthquake, since one week walang pasok--one,two,three pass lang ang ginagawa namin. lahat na ata ng dayaan nagawa na namin at may mga kampihan pa para lang wag malagyan ng lipstick or ng powder sa mukha. in fairness, lumabas ang artistic side ng bawat isa sa lipstick na yan.

-around 5:30 in the afternoon, nasa labas na kmi ng gate and aantayin namin si tita peggy. she would usually be home before 6pm. pagbaba nya ng taxi palakpakan kmi lahat at magbibigay pugay sa kanya. syempre, matutuwa siya at lilibre nya kmi lahat ng ice cream ni mang roger (i wonder where mang roger is now?).

-at about 3pm, aantayin namin ni jepoy ang mga chicks na pwede nya pormahan. ang ending, di pumasa si jepoy sa mga chicks. yung isa, nasusundo nya sa sienna. yung isa, bagsak talaga sya at muntik pa mapaaway (sigawan ba naman ng lolokohin ka lang nyan).

-parati namin pag pustahan kung magsasalita ba si bong pag uwi nya from school...lagi mananalo ang pupusta na di sya magsasalita (infairness malaki na ang pinagbago nya. madaldal na si mayor ngayon!).

-a few years after, mimi went back to finish college (salamat naman). dito na nagsimula ang bonding namin at ni mama san at eventually ni sassaby.

-i remember during the times i get home from school at around 3 and mimi has not eaten lunch yet. bonding time namin ang mag lunch together.

-we would play street badminton or volleyball at around 5 in the afternoon. and then there was a time we would go jogging in the afternoon up to past 6pm. we would go around and it was always fun. naalala ko pa if we get to see nice townhouse units and sasabihin ni bheng na parang masarap tumira dun. sasabihan namin sya ni mimi na sige, "lipat ka na dyan".

-parati kami may sabado nights...malalakas kasi uminom ang mga napadpad sa compound ng time na yun. lahat ng siraulo nagkasabay-sabay mag college. theme song namin that time ang laklak!

-ang boxing bouts ni owelle at archie...

-dressing up owelle and archie as girls...nag mini fashion show pa yan.

-drinking vodka and gilbeys (pag ala pera) with beer as chaser. how did we even manage finishing college?!!?

-ang habulan sa kalye at basaan ng tubig. di kailangan maging fiesta ng san juan para gawin namin ito.

-uso ang dance numbers at kung anu-ano pang presentations noon. simpleng inuman lang may sayawan na agad

-beerhouse namin ang bahay nila mamasan. grande lang ang katapat at kung anu mang canned food or leftover food ang available sa house namin. beer+videoke c/o skycable ch 19 = fun!fun!fun!

-pag di masarap ang ulam sa bahay, pwede makikain as kapitbahay. pwede din makipagpalit ng ulam pag sawa ni si bheng sa binabad.

-going to malate after mamasan's shift at don henrico's. and making sure to be home before the maids wake up.

madaming pang fun memories ang apartment na ito. if walls could only speak. after college though, ako na lang , si mimi, bheng and sassa ang naiwan. then mimi went to the states to pursue her dreams of becoming a chef. and then sassa had to go to bacolod and eventually dumaguete. kmi na lang ni bheng ang naiwan. and what about my other cousins? some are married, others live elsewhere, a few went back to nueva ecija, and one even ended up being a board memeber.

ahay, the joys of living in a compound!
i wanted to make sure i get to do something in the two days break from work that i had...

it was amboy's 8th birthday last tuesday. ang laki ng tinaba ni ambs during the summer break. mso was even asking him kung ano daw ang ginawa nya nung summer kasi parang batak ang katawan nya (teehee!). siguro pinagbuhat ng sako-sako ng palay ang bata kaya lumaki.

happy 8th birthday,amboy!!

he had a mini celebration last saturday but bheng and i still made sure we had something to do on his birthday. so we went to greenhills (parang sa amin pabor ni bheng ang greenhills)! i actually had fun that day. na starstruck pa kmi kay richard reynoso sa brother's burger. hahaha...sassa, mas masaya kung andun ka!

i went to kester yesterday with bheng. i was thinking of enrolling again in this school. ang layo kasi ng new school ko and with my work schedule, nakakatamad mag travel (traffic pa naman sa espana). school environment felt different. i didn't feel like studying in that school anymore. i had thought of what to do with regards to my nursing school...but i will have to think and pray about it. will blog about this next time.

i will be back to work later...feeling better and i have recovered from the cough and colds that hit me last week. hopefully i get to go out with mso on weekend. can't wait to watch a movie....

My Father's Eyes

I may not be every mother's dream for her little girl,
And my face may not grace the mind of everyone in the world.
But that's all right, as long as I can have one wish I pray:
When people look inside my life, I want to hear them say,

She's got her father's eyes,
Her father's eyes;
Eyes that find the good in things,
When good is not around;
Eyes that find the source of help,
When help just can't be found;
Eyes full of compassion,
Seeing every pain;
Knowing what you’re going through
And feeling it the same.
Just like my father's eyes,
My father's eyes,
My father's eyes,
Just like my father's eyes.

And on that day when we will pay for all the deeds we have done,
Good and bad they'll all be had to see by everyone.
And when you're called to stand and tell just what you saw in me,
More than anything I know, I want your words to be,

She had her father's eyes,
Her father's eyes;
Eyes that found the good in things,
When good was not around;
Eyes that found the source of help,
When help would not be found;
Eyes full of compassion,
Seeing every pain;
Knowing what you're going through,
And feeling it the same.
Just like my father's eyes,
My father's eyes,
My father's eyes,
Just like my father's eyes.
My father's eyes,
My father's eyes,
Just like my father's eyes

Happy Father's Day POPSIE and to all my Uncle's, Cousin dad's and friends.

Aba, Ginang Gloria napupuno ka ng grasya.
Ang kayamanan ng tao ay sumaiyo na.
Bukod kang pinagpapala sa babaeng lahat
at pinagpala naman ang iyong anak na si Mikey.

Santa-santitang Gloria, ina ni Lion King
Ipanalangin mo na kay Bush ang iyong mga kasalanan
Ngayon at baka mamaya ay magkaisa ang bayan at paalisin ka na.

Aba naman Gloria napupuno ka ng grasya.

Bukod ka pinagpala sa babaeng lahat.
Pinagpala rin ang iyong angkan. Wala nang natira sa

Dahil Mahal na Mahal Kita

unconditional love - affection with no limits or conditions; complete love
to be able to love unconditionally is really hard. one may say that he loves unconditionally but unconsciously, he doesn't.
i am really confused here. sometimes we are told by people around us that we shouldn't give our all when we love and to always save some for ourselves. but if to love someone unconditionally is to love without limits, then why shouldn't we give our all?
i believe that when we love someone we accept that person for who he is. we accept his past, his present and his future. sometimes it is hard...it may sound surreal but for me that's how it really is. and finding someone who would love you in the same manner is a different story altogether.
i am blessed that i have people around me who loves me unconditionally. who understands and takes me for who i am. *hugs to all of you*

happiness - state of well-being characterized by emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.

is it really hard to say that "i am happy" in every sense of the word? for me YES. i have personally gone through a lot late last year up to early this year. and up to now i can't say i am "HAPPY and CONTENTED". i know i have a lot of things to do in order to achieve that. i can say i am happy...but in a way i can also say that i have something lacking still in some aspects of my life ( im not talking about just lovelife here...but life in general).
in the course of achieving the desired happiness, it becomes even harder because we try so hard to achieve it and you end up frustrated when you have exhausted all efforts to be happy.
but true happiness comes when you least expect it. it comes when you don't really exert much effort. it comes and goes and comes back again.
to live a happy life is hard because life is full of bumps that makes living exciting and difficult. at the same time the bumps we encounter in life makes us stronger and wiser. and when we get pass them...it makes the feeling of happiness super worth it.

...and what the hell am i talking about?
...and what is the connection of my heading with everything i have just blabbed about?
hmm..i just finished watching a diether-claudine-rico movie at cinema one. it was a nice movie, i must say. and claudine talked about unconditional love and trying so hard to be happy in the movie. and it made me think too.

basta! im happy (but i could be happier) and i love.

last day of work today! *yey*
i can't wait for weekend...my work schedule for next week is really bad since i have seperate day off's--bad trip diba?
i have to finish a school paper,which i should actually be doing right now since we were sent to "training" but im so tamad to do it and i really don't know how to start with the report. and doing a school report at 5 in the morning is not really a fun thing to do.
i watched oprah two days ago and it was an episode of an interview with brooke shields, they discussed on how she had to struggle with postpartum depression. It is actually something very common to new mothers but here in the philippines, it is something that is ignored. some say it is something that will just pass, but actually it is something that shouldn't be ignored. it is actually very serious--nyikes sobrang nurse ang sound ko.
an office mate just told me that kris aquino and basketball james yap is already engaged--may upcomming movie ba si kris? (just asking!)
MICA...thank you! and happy weekend to everyone!
