Manoy Noli

It's a crazy day, mainly because Girlie was here in the office!!!!

{Hahaha, hello Girl, I know you're reading this.
And hello MJ!!! Ay! I promised nga pala not to mention your name again. Duh. }

Anyway, so we chatted for a while, almost got late for lunch. Also, I went around the function areas and looked around for something fishy. And guess what I caught? A Vice-President. Yep, you read that right, the Vice President of the Philippines.

He was just calmly sitting there in a beige (was that really beige) sofa set up near the function area where he was the key note speaker for CREBA, and he was talking to two ladies, and guy apparently, from where-the-heck company (of course I didn't bother to ask where they're from, I was almost face to face with "Manoy Noli" for crying out loud!!!). I think he was reviewing a policy of some kind because he was so intent on reading although there was very poor lighting, and then he spoke in a low voice, well, at least low enough not to be blurred out by the noise surrounding him and yet loud enough, because the media people promptly turned silent as the dead when he started talking. (okay, that may be a little exaggerated, but this is my blog, you know...)




Sorry for the blurred shot, as you all know, my phone's a little low-tech. Anyway, I still have to go home and watch "Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader", so tata!



** PS: Congrats to a friend for making it to the top 6 on his pre-board examination... Nice work part! hehehe

**PS #2: ERAP was formally granted his executive clemency this morning. Although it was announced yesterday in a press conference. This is history guys! Make noise! I'll still have to research on how's clemency different from the simple term "pardon".

Understand Your Self Thru YOUR Name

Fancy meeting you, alone in the crowd, couldn't hep but notice your... frown? hehehe...
So here's my name, and the associated meaning to it, according to this site, so please, indulge me... mrgreen


Cathy

You are charming, talented and have a very positive attitude to life so it is hardly surprising that you attract success and recognition. Focused and patient you understand that material rewards are a result of discipline. Being so creative and with a need for self-expression you may be drawn towards the arts, travel is also likely to be important. A loyal friend, you are a person who must be allowed freedom and independence.


Laine
Light "French"

Extremely intelligent in thought and deed you are gifted at communication and finding practical applications for your ideas. You are strong willed and ambitious and need to have passion, freedom and adventure in your life. Always willing to help others you’re warm, honest and loyal nature ensures that you are loved by all. It is likely that you will achieve a great deal of success and recognition in life.


Eugenio
Well-born "Greek"

Having confidence in yourself and integrity you have your emotions under control and are rarely ruffled. You have a quiet and reflective manner and are responsive to the needs of others giving you the ability to be a mediator. You are extremely successful in the material world being organized, financially astute and pursuing realistic goals. Your caring attitude and compassion certainly makes you a loved individual.


Raagas
Balanced and fair-minded you possess the ability to use sound reason and judgment when determined and decisive action is required. Persuasive and logical you tend to be an influential figure in your circle of friends and associates. You are extremely adaptable and this is necessary as you seem to be continually being presented with decisions of a life altering nature.

"I love walking in the rain cause then no one knows im crying."

I think there is choice possible to us at any moment, as long as we live. But there is no sacrifice. There is a choice, and the rest falls away. Second choice does not exist. Beware of those who talk about sacrifice.
- Muriel Rukeyse


You know it's love when all you want is that person to be happy; even if you're not part of their happiness.
- Unknown


Love is when you look into someone's eyes, and see everything you need.
- Unknown


Every man loves two women; one is the creation of his imagination, and the other is not yet born.
- Khalil Gibran


Love creates an 'us' without destroying a 'me'.
- Leo Buscaglia


Love knows not its depth till the hour of separation.
- Khalil Gibran

Lost in the Years

Has it ever occurred to you, that one day you realize that all was gone with the passing of time? They all got lost in the years.

I was doing my usual thought-sorting and was slapped with the fact that, girl, didn't you notice? Almost all of your goals and dreams in the next 5 years or so have already gone crashing down on you? The plans that you carefully built and managed to slowly reach bit by bit has already been scrapped out? I am now just an ordinary happy-go-lucky lady. Whatever happens from now on shall be the work of faith and fate, not my own plans, not my own decisions. I feel I'm too tired to even plan for tomorrow. I can't think straight, I can't even establish a decent goal and find the reins to pull to get myself going. I can't even reach a simple objective as passing a report. I want to go home and take some time off but I dunno. As long as I'm alone with myself I go into this semi/mild depression thing. At least I have my tv babbling away the silence. And my mp3 phone playing songs that help me doze off so I can consciously stop thinking for about 7-8 hours. Sometimes I even think of getting another job in Manila, but that's going to be too far away from my family. I also consider the southern parts of the archipelago, but it's a little bit war-ish for me. Maybe I'll have to just slug it out here in Cebu, always having that possibility of seeing face to face the ghosts that now haunt my existence. Sometimes I wish it were them that could leave this freakin' island. I don't know how much of this torture I can take, but I'm still alive and holding on.

If only I can wish something so bad that it's granted immediately,

I'd wish for amnesia and $100 million.

Anyway, have to go. Internet thing. And I think I'm going with Irish to go see the coppers that the Engineering bosses are fussing about. *sniff*

Advice for Myself?

From Email to You

It's been a while, huh?

I'm actually trying this feature of blogger where you can post thru email since last week, a friend from within the offices told me that it was brought up in the department heads meeting that the IT manager said that it was because of employees accessing the internet network that's why when the big boss is the one using it, the connection is slow. And it's exactly because of this that the said IT manager is now monitoring all users of the network including the sites visited, the amount of time that they spent on the net, and the time when they started using the internet. So, since I definitely use up a lot of time blogging, I thought maybe, just to NOT annoy people, I won't access the net for a while.

And well, I personally think that the IT's idea of why the connection is slow is just as slow as his thinking process. I think there are other reasons why the connection is slow, and I definitely do not think that it's because of the employees' use. Come to think of it, very few employees have internet access. And included in those few peple are all the IT personnel who use Yahoo messenger quite a lot (and now they put the blame on others! Grrrhhh!)

I also believe that these darn IT people have undisclosed and unrestricted access to all company emails. For one thing, they are the administrators and I definitely believ that they've set the company emails to give them a bcc all the time, imagine the flooding! I can only imagine the infinite amount of information, whether official or not, that IT people can have access to. Aside from that, it's a known fact that it's quite human nature to be a gossip. Hmmm. Amazing.

{If so, they'd be having a blast reading this and also, trying to figure out where this post is headed. Hehehe!}

Anyway, my tummy's grumbling already, I'm so darn hungry.

And oh, you want updates on what's new with my non-existent love life? I'd have to think about it first. Don't want you to blow your brains out just thinking about the annoying facts of the said "non-existent" love life. Hohum... It's quite terrible you know, you'd learn to hate me if you just knew everything. :)

So, until next post? I hope this works.

:)

After a Cup of Noodles...

I'd rather not go and kiss anyone 'coz they'd definitely smell and taste the flavoring. hehe.

Ok, so I'm done with breakfast. Yep, I had noodles for breakfast? So what? And soya milk. So what, again? Hmm. I don't usually like having heavy breakfast, especially if I'm the one buying. Hehe, i'd rather have it free.

So I'm in the office now, feeling a wee bit cranky already even if it's just 9:45am. I hate the feeling, but I think I kinda grew familiar with it and find it a part of a normal day. I really should clean my keypad, it's getting a little moist due to my fingertips. Hmmm.

Ok, so done with that. Do you guys remember MJ, the friend who works in an auditing firm? Well, she's here in our office, of course, doing her audit. And she's with Roy and Charmaine (did I get the spelling right? Leave a line if I didn't, k?)

And she said, "what on earth were you thinking mentioning my name in your blog?"
"Huh? Owww... That... Hehehe, why, what's the matter? Only a few people know that it was you I was talking about!" (Unless I post a picture too....idea)

So, just to end the discussion, I won't mention name again MJ.

'Scuse me, but think I'll put this post up and rest my eyes a bit, I'm starting to feel the start of a headache.

Love in the Eyes of a Child

What is LOVE?

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, "What does love mean?"

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

---o0o---


"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore.So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love."

Rebecca- age 8


"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth."

Billy - age 4

{how sweeettt....}


"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other."

Karl - age 5

"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your french fries without making them give you any of theirs."

Chrissy - age 6 {hehehe, cute...}


"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."

Terri - age 4


"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."

Danny - age 7


"Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss."

Emily - age 8


"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen."

Bobby - age 7 {i can't believe it's a 7-yr-old talking!}


"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,"

Nikka - age 6 {amen!}


"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday."

Noelle - age 7


"Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well."

Tommy - age 6


"Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken."

Elaine-age 7


"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day."

Mary Ann - age 4


"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones."

Lauren - age 4


"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you."

Karen - age 7 {what? hehe!}


"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget."

Jessica - age 8

_____

And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child. The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

"Nothing, I just helped him cry".

I've been planning to create my own skin/layout for this blog, and well, I just haven't been quite inspired to do so. My creative cells are still hybernating.

Anyway, I'm still deciding on the color themes, the design itself, the links of course, 'coz I don't wanna lose some of my old posts because every once in a while I try to post something else that I try to connect to the old ones.

Hmmm, I'm actually having a migraine attack right now and I still choose to post something because when I try to construct sentence while having migraine, I find it easier and a little bit faster. Also, the click-click sounds of my typing makes me relax a bit. Darn migraines. Gives me a headache... Hehehe...

Aside from that, I'm still craving for coffee. Although I've minimized my cravings for cheesecake (Cristine now has the cheesecake craving by the way, hehe, sorry girl), I'm now into more coffee. And it's kinda driving me nuts because I don't get contented with instant coffee and buying brewed ones'll make be damn poor! Hohum.. Crazy me.


** Teresa, call me. hehehe.. **

Someone who doesn't exist (part 2)

someone who'll tell the truth even if it will make me furious, or even if it hurts, because he'd know that to lie or not to tell would bring even greater consequences

someone who'll be as wacky as i can be

someone who'll just kiss me on my forehead and say, "how was your day?"

someone who'd need my presence as much as i'd need his

someone who can stand on his own feet, make his own decisions, and be strong enough to stand by it

someone who's not insecure, because i myself need to assure myself

someone who doesn't just talk crap, he does his crap too - meaning he's not all words or stories, but he does what he says

someone who's level headed, because i can be stupid sometimes

someone who not double-minded but has a stable brain wavelength

someone who doesn't want everything in double doses (not two girlfriends, not two wives, not two of everything)

someone who sticks to the plan

someone who'd respect me as much as he wants to be respected

someone who'll be able to take care of me

someone who'd be able to control me at times when i get cranky

someone who'll see the real me, and not through the screen that other people have made him look into

someone who can be stupid sometimes, just to enjoy the day with me

someone sensitive, someone caring

someone who'll just hug me and say nothing, just breathing lightly into my ear

someone sweet, but not too sweet; someone romantic, pero di naman yung nambobola lang

someone who'll embrace me as i am, with perfume or not

someone who seems ideal, but he's not

someone who doesn't exist

papa bear's sick


and oh, would ya kindly pray (if you folks even know how... hehehe, just kidding.... razz)
for a dear friend, he's in the hospital right now, getting tested for dengue.
but the doctors said he's gonna be fine by tomorrow,
and can already be discharged tomorrow afternoon...

get well soon papa bear. neutral

Some Med School in the Philippines!

Ok folks, this issue has started to bombard the world wide web, especially the browsers of both the curious, and the concerned, people of the Philippines, myself included.

I do watch Desperate Housewives, and for some reason or another, I'm actually watching reruns of the previous season in a local tv station. {I won't mention which station anymore, ok?} And it's only through the news that I learned about the famed "racist" comment from the character of Teri Hatcher, Susan, in Desperate Housewives.



“ok, before we go any further, can I check those diplomas ‘coz I would just like to make sure that they’re not from some med school in the Philippines.”

{take note where the stress of her statement lies...}

Here's the clip:



Hmmm, actually, the truth of it as I personally see it is this: the comment was not directed at Filipino Doctors per Se, but to all those med-related professionals practising their craft in the United States. If you try to review the clip from the famed episode, you can hear from her voice that the 'thing' that the comment was undermining was the quality of education that medical schools here in the Philippines provide their clients, whether local bred or aliens.

Are you getting my point here? What I'm saying is, it's correct that we act on it, but lets ALL get our facts straight before reacting. Foreigner teachers, (Americans, Persians, Hindi, Spanish, French, German, extra terrestials, etc, etc, etc...) can teach in Med Schools in the Philippines, you know.

And you Mr {or Ms - he's gay!} Marc Cherry, {don't you think I forgot all about you} can sure damn write some fancy lines! You attracted one whole nation's viewing audience! Not to mention it's government, its people here and abroad, and was even able to cause the launch of an online signature-driven protest against yourself, the show you're writing for, the producers of that show, and the station that airs it. Hmmm. If you like you can also sign the petition here.

Cat Got Your Tongue?

Anyway, I'm still in the office, enjoying the coldness of the darn airconditioning, again. I know, I've complained about it a thousand times already, but I also still kinda like wallowing in it, because here, at least I get to use the internet.

Hmmm, here are my 5's for today...

On Letting Go...

Found this article a few months ago, the link was given by Wax. And it's written by Louise Ganey.


---o0o---
When You Can't Let Go

So it's been over for a while. You've tried your best not to ring him or see him. Perhaps you've done the opposite, and sought him out at every opportunity, and rung him when you knew you shouldn't. Either way, you still can't stop thinking about him, and although you may have tried various ways to distract yourself, you can't get him out of your head. Unrequited love is frustrating, painful, and not that uncommon. I've watched quite a few of my close girlfriends experience this kind of heartache to a horrendous degree. I too, have found myself pining pathetically away over a lost love. It's hard, and it hurts. But you can, and will eventually let him go and move on.

So what can you do?

Don't call him or try and see him. It will always end in tears. If by some chance you can catch him, either by phone or in person, you are just placing a short-term bandaid on your heart. At first, this contact will make you feel good, until he reinforces to you that's over and he has moved on (this is where the tears begin). It's just like breaking up all over again. All you're doing is putting yourself into a vulnerable and painful situation again. If you think that by making contact with him, you can change how he feels, you will be disappointed. Remember, as much as love can be a beautiful experience, it can also be so cruel. The reality is, if he had decided he wanted you back, then he would have tried to contact you. If he's made no attempt to do this, then he doesn't want you back. Trying to persuade him to get back together will only frustrate you and ultimately anger him. He knows there is nothing he can say or do to make you feel any better, and contacting him will only frustrate him. In the end if you keep calling, the only way you're going to make him happy, is by leaving him alone for good.

If you can, try and reverse the situation. If you ended the relationship, and your ex kept calling to try and convince you to get back together, it wouldn't take long until you would dread the thought of hearing from him. It's just the same for guys.

Surround yourself with your girlfriends. When you are going through a difficult battle such as this one, go to your girlfriends, that's what they're there for. It's okay to vent your feelings when you first break up with your partner, but if you keep rehashing the same thing, they too will become sick of hearing about it. If this starts to happen, they're not being bitchy, there's just nothing they can say or do to help. Use them to take your mind off things. Your friends would rather you do this than hear the same old story over and over about why he doesn't want to be with you.

Try doing girl things together. Go shopping, have a girl's night out, or take a weekend away. For most girls, close girlfriends can be like an extended family, and they will love you through the tough times, but they need to see you are trying to help yourself. No matter how much people care, they do get sick of someone who's not trying to help themselves.

Throw yourself into work, hobbies, and recreation. Even if you can't stop thinking about your ex, get out and live. It may not be helpful to start with, but after a while it can ease the heartache. Once the relationship's over, it's important you start rebuilding your life. Often when couples are together for a while, they're worlds entwine and become one. So it's normal to feel a little lost. Sometimes what you may be missing is the security of having a predictable and safe love and social life. Many people lose contact with their friends when they fall in love, and once it's over they feel completely devastated at the loss of not just their ex, but of the life they gave up to be with them. And when it's over, things are going to change dramatically. Change is sometimes terrifying, but it can also be wonderful. If change scares you, try and turn it around. Embrace chance. With change comes growth, and when you grow, the person you should find at the end will be a beautiful and strong survivor.

If you've tried everything. If it's been months, and you still can't find you can let go of your ex, you may need to seek out some counselling. You will probably find that the problem lies a lot deeper than the ending of a relationship. Talking with someone other than your friends can often throw a new perspective on the situation, and you may find that there are other alternatives to help you move on. Seeing a professional for a relationship break-up does mean you are weak or hopeless. If you cannot move on, this is actually a healthy decision, and is quite common.

Letting go of someone you love and accepting that they no longer want to be with you can be a painful thing to cope with. But the heart does heal; it's just some just take longer than others. And remember you've lived much of your life without this person before, and you can do it again. You just need to be strong, and hang on.

Blog Walking

Hmm, "walked" through Girlie's blog after spending a chunk of my afternoon time in our mini-library looking through SOP's and other things. And oh, I just discovered that Mary Jean's gonna be heading the due diligence engagement for our company. Way to go MJ!!! *clap clap clap* So you're a senior now, huh?! Hmmm...
Anyway, I also checked myy email, and guess what? Wala lang. Hahaha, joke. In fairness, I just found these articles (which are quite common, mind you) amusing.
---o0o---
CREATING PERFECT RELATIONSHIPS?
A person visited the government matchmaker for marriage, SDU, and requested "I am looking for a spouse. Please help me to find a suitable one." The SDU officer said, "Your requirements, please." "Oh, good looking, polite, humorous , sporty, knowledgeable, good in singing and dancing. Willing to accompany me the whole day at home during my leisure hour, if I don't go out. Telling me interesting stories when I need companion for conversation and be silent when I want to rest."
The officer listened carefully and replied, "I understand you need television."
There is a saying that a perfect match can only be found between a blind wife and a deaf husband ,because the blind wife cannot see the faults of the husband and the deaf husband cannot hear the nagging of the wife. Many couples are blind and deaf at the courting stage and dream of perpetual perfect relationship. Unfortunately, when the excitement of love wears off, they wake up and discover that marriage is not a bed of roses. The nightmare begins.

RIGHT SPEECH
There is a Chinese saying which carries the meaning that "A speech will either prosper or ruin a nation." Many relationships break off because of wrong speech. When a couple is too close with each other,we always forget mutual respect and courtesy. We may say anything without considering if it would hurt the other party.
A friend and her millionaire husband visited their construction site. A worker who wore a helmet saw her and shouted,"Hi, Emily! Remember me? We used to date in the secondary school."
On the way home, her millionaire husband teased her, "Luckily you married me.Otherwise you will be the wife of a construction worker." She answered ,"You should appreciate that you married me. Otherwise, he will be the millionaire and not you."
Frequently exchanging these remarks plants the seed for a bad relationship. It's like a broken egg - cannot be reversed.


---o0o---
So there. Hehehe.... Hello





Away from Home

I remember the time I started blogging; it was also when I was away from Cebu - the place I called home for quite some time. And now, here I am, reminiscing.rolleyes

I'm not originally from Cebu. I grew up in Bulacan (that's in Luzon), then we migrated, like birds, to Zamboanga. Funny, redface because I couldn't understand a whole sentence then without frowning. Hehe.

So I learned to speak Bisaya through my grade 6 classmates. The room was divided into half by then, half was pro their bet for the best student, and the half, was of course, rooting for me. The guys and gals that taught me I considered my barkada also at that time. They were composed of my cousins (my uncles & aunts, actually), and their friends. What they did was that they don't respond to me nor talk to me unless I talk in Bisaya. So what did the freakin' gurl do? Learned and spoke Bisaya. Left me no choice you know.

And after a while I went to Davao. Had to. I was taking the scholarship. And then college to Cebu. And this is where I spent most of my time from then on. I considered it my home for quite a while because loved ones were there too. But now....

Anyway, still have the closest of friends in Cebu. They're still there. Living their lives, glad to be disturbed when I needed company. Sometimes even thankful for the distraction. hehehe.

Thanks guys, luv ya. See ya around.
