We were feeling filthy rich last night so we bought 1/4 kilo of lechon (roast pig) for dinner. After devouring it, Tom and I decided to take a walk around the village. We always have chats, whether the topics are nonsense or seriously brain boggling.
We passed by a house with their tv facing the window; the show was Agua Bendita. You can laugh at me for saying this, but I do watch Agua Bendita, for the simplest reason that the director really knows what he's doing, Andie as Agua sounds freakishly weird for being too soft-spoken and Pilar Pilapil is such a hateful grandmother it's getting unrealistic.
Anyway, so Tom nonchalantly asks,
Tom: "Nie, do you know the difference between the US and Philippines?
Me: [thinking hard as to what he's up to so I can blurt out a comeback even if he hasn't started yet... but to no avail..]"Not really. What is it?"
Tom: "US has two political parties and a lot of channels..."
And just so you know, I've noticed weird things about that ad too, I was just too lazy or chicken to blog about it. Imagine, if he was poor, why would their family picture have a nice lawn as a background? And they have really decent clothes on. Don't you agree?
Here's an interesting video about that brother's death issue.
And this one, would you believe that a house with a second floor at the time of Villar's childhood is equivalent to being poor? Hmm...
This is for all those who were patiently and anxiously waiting for the Bar Exam results - exams held in September 2009 and the results were released just last night, March 26, 2010. To look for your name in the complete list, go to this link:
I didn't think reading can still be a project even after high school when book reports were requirements to get a final grade.
So what exactly am I talking about?
It's the LSOP elevation thing where my department and another one we call CSD embark on reviewing just about 200 local SOPs (LSOPs) developed by colleagues that are either still here or not. These LSOPs come from different properties/branches and from different departments. Just imagine the bulk of the reading material! Eeeek!
Aside from reading them, we have to literally review them one by one and sort them out according to a set of criteria to be able to come up with a list of all the LSOPs that we shall be recommending to be elevated to SOP status. Which means, in normal human language, that once these local SOPs are made into SOPs, they can be implemented or required to be implemented universally or to all properties/branches. Did you understand anything there? lol!
