On disagreement

28 November 2007

Chris has been ignoring me and treating me coldly since this very morning. It’s his special way of saying “this is what you get for not beating my dare”.My fault or not, I just can’t make a 5-minute bath. Period.drop

I feel deprived of time conforming to this kind of dare. I just can’t do it because I chose not to. Sounds harsh, selfish, unreasonable, call it what you want. I’ll still not give in to it.

Taking a good, long, relaxing bath is a treat for myself. Not that I went brouhaha in the office or been haggled by so many things that tend to snatch sanity out of me. Well, yeah, sort of. It’s just my time for a peaceful reunion of my cluttered mind and the calmed one (two minds? Smack a butt and talk reality!)

Whenever the drops of water intimately unite with my troubled mind and my weary body, there’s this inexplicable euphoria.

A ritual of contemplation and reflection,

of looking back what I did great or worse for today,

of analyzing,

or remembering the funny line a co-blogger dropped,

of visualizing the scenario of the novel I’ve been reading…
of thinking.

What hurts (making me slightly furious) me is that he’s stopping me for doing things I want and is important for me. Imagine he is timing my bath! C’mon!
I might sound a bit overreacting and dramatic. I cannot blame you or Chris.
Maybe I just cannot… whatever.

Chris is far more important that this petty bath.
I just wish he comes to terms with this caprice of mine. Or might as well this afterthought makes me lessen this ‘moment with myself’ time.
Or we can meet halfway, ‘ya know?
Ah relationships! Where do we really draw the line here?

***

Anyway, I’m almost through with the novel I’ve been trying to finish since Stone Age.
Its title is “Sushi for Beginners” by Marian Keyes. A story of three English women in an Irish setting (a kingdom of boredom so as the character says).

Two of them are working for a Magazine called Colleen. “A slave driving b*t**”, a “world class worrier” and “a discontented

mother” intertwined by their own passions and life atrocities.

Sushi for Beginners

I cannot really say it’s a page turner until I came on the 504th page. The story started to be real interesting from there.

With new words in my mental vocabulary such as “fecking” (the f-word in Irish colloquial), sacked (fired someone,) and Ijeet (colloquial for idiot), the book by Keyes has been a cool treat and a guide to a life light years far from mine. It’s shouting between the lines ‘I’m Britiish. And this is an English world. Feck off’ for crying out loud!

Lolz. A big lolz!

of ribbons and sweets – on 19th Nov

20 November 2007

Sa maniwala kayo o sa hindi, birthday ko ngayon. Happy birthday to me!
Masaya ako kasi naging mabait si Papa God sa akin despite ng pagiging hindi ulirang anak at pagiging pasaway.
Ngayong araw na ito, maraming sopresa ang naghihintay sa akin.

Una, naka-usap ko ng first time sa YM ang mabait na si Az. Hehe. Lekat. Nacute-an sa fwend ko pero sa akin ang sabi
“Hmm.. mukhang makulit” . Haha! Walang kadeskri-desripsyon. Basta mukhang makulit.
Naging isa siyang mabuting kuya na tinuruan akong magpalit ng header at magpalit ng theme
para macustomized ang header. Gwahehe! Az, thanks talaga ah.
Bale yung specs nung sa akin mail ko na lang kapag natapos ko ng i-conceptualized.

Pangalawa. Nagbigay ng Tiramisu cake at isang napakagandang bouquet ng flower ang aking
butihing boss na si Jenny. Napaka-sweet talaga niya kahit alam na niyang lalayas na ko sa kompanya within 1 month.

Pangatlo. reregaluhan ako ng kapatid kong mabait at ubod ng sungit pero malambing sa loob ng isang LAPTOP!
Oh mi golay!
LAPPPPPTTTTTTTTTOOOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!

kahit gawin mong 5210 celpon ko o yung tipong pangkaskas ng yero (as long as nakakatwag at nakakatext)
basta bigyan mo lang ako ng pangarap kong laptop, oh mi golay tlga!
kinikilig akooooooooooooooooo!!!!

Heniwei, January pa naman ang dating ng future laptop ko.
Maniwala uli kayo at sa hindi, ang tagal kong pinagpray ang laptop na yun.
Kung isa kang agnostic/atheist na bumabasa na blog na ito, naniniwala akong hindi ka aksidenteng napadpad dito.
Hindi kita pipiliting maniwala sa pinapaniwalaan ko.
Gusto ko lang sabihing at ipahayag ang sarili kong pinaniniwalaan hindi dahil kailangan kong papaniwalain ka kundi
kailangan kong sabihin kung ano ang buhay ko at laman ng puso at isip ko.
But I digress. My apologies.

***

Birthday rin pala ni Banana gurl Annie. Happy burtdey Annie. Taga-abu siya. Ako Dubai. And magkaburtdey tayo! watta coincidence!

***

Century tuna lang ang baon ko sa office. Pero parang feeling ko isa ako sa mga taong sobrang pinagpala ni Tatay.

***

One of these days, baka baguhin ko ang porma at nilalaman ng blog ko. Shift? Huh? Whatever.

Inday’s Sensible Advice on Love and Healthy Dependency

14 November 2007

When you have a problem, don’t hesitate to tell it to people you can’t live without. You have friends and loved ones that you can depend on. So even if you say you need nobody, you’re wrong. Remember what MJ said to Peter Parker? “Everybody needs help, even Spiderman!”

– payo ni Inday kay Dodong nung ayaw nya magsalita dahil may bumabagabag sa kanyang puso.

(Inday’s advice to Dodong’s anxiety to speak what’s troubling his heart.)

This story from Inday’s blog makes a lot of sense.

pers taym (unang subok)… ang pitong tag, bow!

7 November 2007

Na-touched naman ako sa pagkaka-tag sa akin ni AZ (isa sa mga hinahangaan kong blogger sa blogosphere). Kaya heto na AZ, mainit -init ngunit kulang kulang na sagot ko. Haha!7 FACTS ABOUT ME

1. On faith: Isa akong Kristiyano. Hindi perpekto PERO pinatawad na.

2. On future: Size 38 cup B ako. Bakit ko sinabi? Kasi kahit saang lupalop ako ng mundo pumunta yan ang unang mapapansin. Curse o blessing bahala na kayong humusga. For me, it’s just a piece of skin. (chenez!)

3. On gadget: May 3 pirasong stickers na hugis puso na nakadikit sa mobile ko (ako, ang brother ko at ang boyfriend ko na nakatira sa isang flat sa dubai ay may pare-parehong hugis, disenyo at kulay ng cellphone). Recently, nakapulot ako ng panasonic digicam samantalang ang nasa wishlist ko ay laptop. Galing noh? Si Lord kakaiba talaga ang sense of humour.

4. On life: Hindi ko alam kung paano makisama, makibagay, makipag-usap o makipagbalitaktakan sa mga taong may edad 40 pataas. Takot yata ako sa kanila o na-iintimidate o marahil ayaw ko lang ng sistemang hierarchical.

5. On relationship: kasama ako sa grupo ng mga taong classified as: Tactile. I am very touchy person. My level of intimacy depends on how comfortable I am in touching a person close to me. I usually touch people on their hands, their hair and their back.

6. On past: the weirdest thing in my life is I cannot remember my childhood. Ang pinaka-clear lang na naalala ko was from 7 years old and up. Sabi ng Tita ko may nangmanyak sa akin nung 2 months old ako. 9 years old ako ng may nag-aabang sa akin sa may tindahan ng kapitbahay namin at kapag nakikita niya ako nagpapahalik siya sa lips. Yak! Bwisit yung kumag na yun! Grade 5 ako, ang driver ng school service ay binibigyan ako ng 5pesos para i-kiss siya sa pisngi. With these traumatic encounters, I spent my entire high school being very boyish.

7. On present. Maraming blessings from above: New offer from a publication company which is my dream job, a boyfriend which I can say the best in the whole world and a cool blog and forum where I meet out of the box thinkers.

To change and change for the better are two different things – a German proverb

29 October 2007

To move from blogger to wordpress was such a difficult decision. I’ve been really comfortable using all the templates and experimenting with my account in blogger. But then, what pushes me to finally use wordpress is that, oh well… I’ve observed so many fellow kabayans have been using it over blogger. Maybe I just want to be in (not really), or let me put it this way: I will be able to communicate more with kapwa pinoys and participate in forums in wordpress.

In changing my blog host, I don’t want to lose my previous posts so I’ve searched for some tips to migrate my posts and comments from my former blog to here. It’s just a breeze. Click here.

paano maging blogger?

una, pumunta sa http://www.blogger.com

pangalawa, kung wala ka pang gmail account, it’s time para magkaroon na!

ang username mo at ang password mo sa gmail ay sya ring magsisilbing username at password mo sa blog mo.

pangatlo, pumili ng blog title at blog address (siguraduhing ang mga sumusunod ay embodiment ng iyong personality, wag gumamit ng masyadong general na term gaya ng bilog. 😀 ) at i-key in ang word verification na automatic na nilang ibibigay!

maghintay ng ilang segundo…. 1..2….3….4…

at voila!!!! may blog ka na!!!!

mantakin mo! ganito lang kadali ang paggawa ng blog! mas nahirapan pa akong magkabisa ng multiplication table nung grade two ako kesa sa paggawa ng blog na ito…

pero itong blog na ito at ay simpleng blog pa lamang naman.

marami rami pang options katulad ng paggawa ng blog sa friendster, my space, windows live today, wordpress, at kung anik anik pa… pero katulad ng pagdadala mo ng apelyido ng tatay mo, ganito rin ang sistema ng pangalan o ng address ng blog mo. laging kaakibat ng blog address mo ang domain na naghohost ng blog mo. katulad nitong sa akin: http://www.bilogako.blogspot.com

kung gusto mo namang makalaya sa pangalan ng iyong host, kailangan mong bayaran ang sarili mong pangalan. kung nanaisin kong maging http://www.bilogako.com na lamang ang blog address na ito, kailangan ko pang iregister ang domain na iyon at bayaran panghabambuhay o kung hanggang kailan tatagal ang internet sa mundong ibabaw ang blog address na uniquely sa akin lamang… parang pagpapalit ng pangalan… kailangan mong pumunta sa korte at dumadaan ng samu’t saring proseso para mapalitan ang apelyidong bagong gahasa o nakngtinapa na kaakibat ng iyong first name(if unfortunately eh etu ang apelyido ng angkan nyo).

(same din to ng mga babaeng mag-aasawa, if mag-papalit ka ng gusto mong apelyido, syempre apelyido ng asawa mo, marami pang proseso)

at syempre higit sa lahat, magbabayad ka.

tunay nga naman: freedom has a price.

pero, currently, masaya naman akong dalhin ang apelyidong blogger. chaka user-friendly naman sya, so in na rin ako. chaka wala akong pambayad, kanjus(kuripot sa lenggwaheng urdu) ako.

well… well…well… bakit nga ba ako gumawa ng ikatlong blog?

una, kasi pag trip kong mag-express ng sarili ko in my native languange, magagawa ko. yung isa ko kasing blog, sinusubukan kong pure english sana para mahasa pa ng tuluyan ang aking kakayanang makipagtalastasan sa lenggwaheng banyaga. gwaheheheh…

chaka isa pa, para naman wala lang… mas less serious. hindi naman siguro sa pagiging schizophrenic,pero sa blog na ito, yung kababawang side naman ang ipapakita ko.

ayun… mas maraming blog, mas masaya! wish ko lang…. gwahehehehe….

Currently ang inyong lingkod ay nasa WordPress na po. Kasi mas maraming Pinoy dun at may saysay at makukulay ang buhay ng mga blogger dun.  O baka bias na lang tlga ako.
