gloria wears prada

Some random thoughts felt and heard:
  • Romulo Neri was quoted as saying, "She's EVIL!". Referring to PGMA. Afterwards denying that he's said such thing. Oh c'mon! Evil is not such a bad description for her. Dagdagan mo na lang ng D sa umpisa swak na swak na! D-EVIL!
  • Governor Salcedo called her a lucky bitch. Well she's damn lucky she's still our president. Kapit tuko eh. As for the bitch, well. Bitches don't steal. Whores do. Lucky WHORE!
  • And that unity walk done by the cabinet, governors, and high ranking officials in the military? People have doubted their confidence and trust before, we completely lost it now.
  • And the statement of the CBCP, separation of church and state? Sabi nga ni Erap, sana ginawa nila din yun sa kanya. I'm not saying na tama si Erap pero sana the Church won't choose the circumstances kung kelan sila kikilos at kung kelan hindi. Now I miss Cardinal Sin. Konti lang naman.
  • At bakit tuwing may visit si Jun Lozada sa mga schools eh may nakukuhang mga hidden cameras sa labas ng gate. Coincidence ba?
  • Today marks the day! Inter-faith rally at Makati. To be attended by different religious sectors, THE Makati Business Club, Managers Association of the Philippines (tama ba?), United Opposition, Cory Aquino, Erap, sectors from the nearby provinces, and all those who wants the truth to come out. So if you're asking for the truth, and wants D-EVIL out of Malacanang, sama sama tayong punta sa Makati later. Sana lang isuspend ang pasok dito sa Ortigas! Calling MD! hehe
  • And why does Mike Velarde not joining the inter-faith rally? Too scared to spoil his 2010 bid? Naman naman naman.
  • From Bandila, Buhay representative Velarde, son of Mike, has said na they wouldn't join 'coz they believe that the truth hasn't came out yet. And it is still premature to act kung hindi pa sinasabi ng korte na totoo nga yung mga allegations about the ZTE controversy. Ang masasabi ko lang, BOBO KA BA?! Anong ineexpect mo, aaminin na lang basta basta ni PGMA at ni FG yung pagnanakaw nila? Hindi pa ba enough yung pag-amin ni Gloria na nalaman nya a night before na overpriced yung ZTE deal? Pero nagsign pa rin sya kasi ayaw nyang masira yung relationship with China? Ano pa bang truth ang kelangan mo? Sayang lang ang boto ng mga tao sayo! BOBO!
  • I remember a colleague saying na "eh wala namang ok na papalit sa kanya eh, antay na lang tayo ng 2010." Ayoko na lang magcomment. Pero parang hindi pang ISKOLAR kasi yung reasoning. Buti na lang good mood ako nun kungdi ay naku. Hahaha!
  • I know there's still hope for us. So if you share my sentiments, express them. Show them. Let us be heard. Ngayon tayo kelangan ng bansa natin. Whew! This whole situation brought out the aktibista in me! Fight for truth! GLORIA RESIGN!!!

vantage point

Last night, I was able to watch Vantage Point at Gateway. The movie stars Hollywood biggies Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox, Forest Whitaker, and William Hurt as the US president. Was kinda surprised though with Sigourney Weaver's short exposure. It's as if the story will go on without her. Watch out for the twists and turns as the story progresses. Not your typical action flick. It's a must-see! And piece of advice, try to remember every detail.

market research and prostitution

The truths about working in market research:

  • You work weird (night) shifts... Just like prostitutes.
  • They pay you to make the client happy... Just like a prostitute.
  • The client pays a lot of money, but your employer keeps almost every penny... Just like a prostitute.
  • You are rewarded for fulfilling the client's dreams... Just like a prostitute.
  • Your friendships fall apart and you end up hanging out with people in the same profession as you... Just like a prostitute.
  • When you have to meet the client you always have to be perfectly groomed... Just like a prostitute.
  • But when you go back home it seems like you are coming back from hell... Just like a prostitute.
  • The client always wants to pay less but expects incredible things from you... Just like a prostitute.
  • When people ask you about your job, you have difficulties to explain it... Just like a prostitute.
  • Everyday when you wake up, you say: "I'm not going to spend the rest of my life doing this." Just like a prostitute.

the bomb has finally dropped

Last Saturday I failed to inform my sister that I won't be coming home and will be staying overnight at a friend's house. Come Sunday morning, while on my way home via LRT1, she called. Halata sa boses nya na nag-aalala coz umaga na and hindi pa nalalock yung main door. Which means hindi nga ako umuwi. My Dad was in Tarlac since Friday morning so sya lang mag-isa sa bahay. It turned out napanaginipan nya pala ako. Nakabalot daw ako ng puting kumot hanggang ulo and nasa coffin na. Then I was there with my Nanay. I really felt guilty. Then napaniginipan din ng eldest namin Nanay ko. Wag daw muna kaming mag-asawa, 2 na lang naman kaming hindi kasal, para daw hindi mag-asawa ulit Dad ko. Syempre ate ko reacted coz I know naman yung plans nila ni Francis.

Just an hour ago bumaba ako ng sala para kumain. Naabutan ako ng Dad ko. Matamlay. He asked me kung nakausap daw ba ako ni Ate. Yun pala nagsabi na sila kagabi of their plans. Sabi ko nga, the biggest bomb has been dropped. Though expected na pero iba pa rin yung impact. Syempre hindi pa naman agad-agad pero the thought na any moment eh aalis na sya dito sa bahay. Which leaves me and my Dad. From six, soon we'll be down to 2.

Now I dunno what I will do. I'm also thinking of leaving. Not that papakasal ako. But I wanna try living independently. Vague pa yung plano pero ngayon I'll start making ipon. Gotta be ready for whatever plan na maisip ko. But now, I am really at a lost. Ako na lang mag-isa...

black valentines

Haaay dumaan na naman ang Valentines. Nagmahal na naman ang mga bulaklak. Puno na naman ang mga resto. Fully-booked ang mga hotel at motel. Iba talaga pag Feb.14!

At ako? Ano bang ginawa ko?
  • presentation of the pricing project for 7-eleven

  • cancelled Valentine's lunchout with my Ortigas lunch buddies

  • opened a savings account sa PBCom sa baba

  • finished Polaris snapshot template for DP (will be missing Starbucks by April)

  • St. Jude novena ng 7pm

  • dinner at Yellow Cab SM Manila

Simple lang naman ang aking itinerary yesterday. Nothing extraordinary. Haay. Nakakainggit yung mga may date!!!

But I got a very nice Valentine's gift. Thanks to HR kahit na na-SPAM ang announcement ng promotion namin! Kung hindi pa nag-pop si Liz hindi namin mapapansin yung email na naforward sa Bulk folder.

bfad approved?

Imagine this. You're hungry. You hurriedly went to the nearest grill resto near your office. You're with your new consultant and HR decided to treat you all for lunch. You had your orders taken and was busy sipping your soup. Until your new consultant found something in your soup. Cockroach alert! What would you do?

Anyways, that was what happened to our very first lunchout with our new Stat consultant, Sir Kiko delos Reyes. Yes, the popular prof from Stat and consultant of AGB hehe. He found this cockroach floating right after we had consumed half of our Seafood soup at Marina here in Ortigas. And all the waiter had to offer was a mango dessert with two bananas. I was waiting for HR to demand something or at least leave the resto since our health was at stake there. But she didn't. Kung pwede lang ako magdemanda!

So guys, iwas na lang po tayo dito sa Marina. I know this might have been the first time but still their service and cleanliness is in question already. Dito pa naman kami minsan maglunch right after our weekly Operations meeting. Another resto scratched out from my list of must-dines.

27 dresses

I'm officially back to being a kaladkaring bata.

Nung nagyaya ako nung Wednesday morning akala ko walang pwede. Kaya diretso na akong Makati after office para maghanap ng lintek na sapatos na yan na wala nang kasya saking size! Bakit ba kasi kung kelan nagsesale eh dun nauubos ang size ko! Badtrip!

So yun nga. We watched 27 dresses at Shangri-La Cinema. LFS to since 9pm ang out ni Carsha from her MBA class sa LSGH. The movie was okay. If you've seen Got 2 Believe ni Claudine and Rico Yan, you'll say na 27 Dresses is a rip-off of that movie. Pero sobrang dami nga ng similarities. Pero nadala naman nila Katherine Heigl and James Marsden. The girl who played Katherine's sister is also the one in the movie Heartbreak Kid with Ben Stiller na pinanood din namin 2 weeks ago. Tumatak talaga sakin yung role nya dun na exhibitionist kaya pati dito sa movie na to eh inaantay ko yung ganung scenes hehe.

And si John Lloyd Cruz ay nakaupo lang sa likod namin with his non-showbiz GF. Ganito kasi. Nauna si Sab sa Shang since she's within the area and sya na bumili ng tickets. Then nasa likod nya sa pila si JLC. Knowing Sab na fanatic ni JLC, hindi na mapakali. Text agad. Then nauna daw pumasok sila JLC sa cinema. Kasi kami antay pa namin si Carsha na late! hehe. So ayun hindi nakapagpapicture ang president ng Jologs League na si Sab. Pero nung papasok na kami nakita nung guard yung ticket namin. K10-K12. Biglang hirit nya na si JLC daw eh L10-L11. Akalain mo yun! At syempre kinuha agad ni Sab yung K10. At ang nakakatawa pa eh behave sya pagkaupo. Ni ayaw kumain ng popcorn pano asa likod nya nga si JLC. Benta talaga. Hindi na nila tinapos yung movie. Para siguro hindi sila pagkaguluhan. Kaya si Sab, malungkot! Hahaha.

Before we entered the cinema pala andun din si Ethel Booba with Alex. Yep, sila ulit! Nyahaha. Andun din si Jen or 26K and PBB with Donnie Geisler. Mga so so lang naman sila so hindi na namin masyadong pinansin. Pero gusto ko magpapic kay Ethel! Hahaha. Sayang!
