inhale exhale

Not really feeling okay today. Slept past 2 this morning due to a segmentation project. A VERY urgent project to be presented by MD this afternoon. Woke up at 5am to follow up on the additional segmentation requests. Thank God the base wasn't robust enough to generate at least 3 clusters. But still, I just had a 3 hour sleep. And I'm getting dizzy.

Then, while on my way to the office, I received a text coming from the main office to dropby to discuss on weights. WEIGHTS! My least favorite word. My stomach squirms just by hearing or even reading that word. And the show went on.

Upon hearing my voice over the phone, this director barged inside the room and started yelling at me. And did I mention that I just had a 3 hour snooze? Turned out one of his favorite quant person sent an email with the word "ERROR", emphasized in all caps. No wonder his body temp suddenly surged to infinity. And I was the only OMM person around. So I was an easy target. Good thing I wasn't myself that early so I didn't really mind his yelling. I don't have the energy just yet. And I haven't taken any meal for the day.

So I just inhaled...then exhaled. That made my day!

tante grazie Mega B

I would be a hypocrite if I say that I wasn't waiting for a treat for me and Mike's birthday. It was Mega B's new rule to at least treat out the celebrants. And that should come as a surprise. And how much I waited for July to come. Haha. *assuming*

Tuesday should have been a stressful day for me. Alongside the scheduled status meeting, we were to report the status of Project Borders to my director. I say it was stressful since I've been pulling my wits out day and night. And that's not easy for a geek such as myself. God knows how I hate doing conjoint. But I've got no choice. And so it happened. Woke up late with a hangover and HEADACHE!!! Asked Mike to excuse myself from the status meeting so I can discuss the issues raised by Bruce with our consultant. And when the time came to face the jury, there was a surprise lunch. And it did came at the time I wasn't expecting anything but my ass getting grilled again. Success! We had our own share of S-U-R-P-R-I-S-E! And I thought that was it. Gale brought another one when she consulted for weights. She brought this with her...

And I was all smiles. This would be my third Starbucks mug/tumbler. And I like it.
Tante Grazie Mega B!

reuniting E!

From the column of Ricky Lo at Phil. Star last July 13.

Yes, it’s confirmed: The Eraserheads are reuniting after many years of being apart, not for good but only for one show slated for Aug. 30 at the CCP Open Grounds. According to the STAR source, all the original members are performing — Ely Buendia, Buddy Zabala, Marcus Adoro and Raimund Marasigan. This piece of good news should make the Eraserheads fans very happy. Said to be the ‘greatest Pinoy band,’ the Eraserheads will sing all their hit songs, including Alapaap, Toyang and Ang Huling El Bimbo. So much water, so to speak, has flowed under the bridge since the band broke up years ago. Ely, who survived a heart attack two years ago, has formed two bands, Mongol (which didn’t last long) and Pupil (still playing). ‘It took one big company to bring the former band members together,’ said the source who is keeping the company’s identity ‘confidential’ for the time being. Really now, don’t the Eraserheads fans wish that the band would stay together not just for a one-night-only concert but for good...for old time’s sake?Ricky Lo

No news yet on the tickets. But most websites indicated that the tickets are for free. You just have to sign-up somewhere. I tried signing up at the Red List at the Marlboro website since sila yung sponsor. Pucha! I'll do anything to watch them! Eheads ROCK!!!

di na natuto

Opo. I got an allergy again. But not from the tattoo but from the L'Oreal color applied to my hair at Bench Fix. Nakakainis. Lahat na lang bawal. Minsanan na nga lang naa-allergy pa. After the application last Saturday sabi ko sa sarili ko, yari na. Nagreact na skin ko. Ang kati na eh. Then nung gabi eh pakiramdam ko medyo nangangapal na naman batok ko. So paggising ko ng Sunday eh pinatignan ko sa kapatid ko. Tama nga. Makapal na sya so I went straight to St. Luke's ER. Pero hindi na ko pinag-IV. The doctor just gave me medicine, yung steroid na ininom ko din before, after magreact balat ko sa henna. And his suggestion, alisin ko daw yung color ng buhok ko. Pero paano? Sabi ng kapatid ko pakalbo na raw ulit ako. No! No way! Sayang yung kulay! hehe. Ang gandang birthday gift talaga! Haay.

got INKed



my wishlist

Don't ever believe anyone who would tell na maluho ako. Don't even believe them when they say that I'm materialistic. Tech-savvy lang ako. Nagkataong addict ako sa bagong cellphone na nilalabas ng Nokia. Nagkataon na gusto ko yung mga bags at flops ng Nike. Naging biktima lang ako ng pagkakataon! Simpleng tao lang po ako. At mga simpleng bagay lang naman ang hinihiling ko. Kaya walang pakealaman kung gusto kong gumawa ng wishlist kahit malayo pa ang Pasko! Blog ko to! Items in no specific order. Sa mga magbibigay, you MAY choose one. LOL
  • Nokia N96
  • Starbucks bearista (yung naka apron)
  • white Nike flops
  • bluetooth headset (nasira yung headset ko!)
  • Nike Finstar leather size 9
  • Maxtor external HD 160gb (ok din lang yung 120gb)
  • black alligator (hula lang) shoes from People Are People
  • stat manager or director (ito kung pwede pakiuna please lang!)
  • room makeover
  • queen-size bed skeleton made of wood (i don't need a cushion kasi may scolio ako)
  • GC sa starbucks, nike, memo, etc.
  • magandang mechanical pencil 0.3 (wala daw sa Parker huhu)
  • chance to meet MYMP
  • Acer Aspire 1.0 (nabibigatan na ko sa laptop ko)
  • isang masarap kayakap sa Pasko hahaha!

So far yan pa lang naiisip ko. Dadagdagan ko na lang pag may namutawi ulit sa aking isipan.

i just hate rainy days

It was sunny when I left the house yesterday morning. The heat was actually irritatingly hot when we got back from lunch. So I was surprised that it was raining when I was about to leave the office. Then someone from the main office visited so I asked them if I can hitch a ride until Crossing where I'll be catching the MRT enroute to Makati.

So the deal was, we were already at Shaw Blvd. when I realized something missing. Not again! It was the second day in a row that I left my friggin' wallet somewhere. Last Tuesday, left it in my room so I needed to get back home around lunch time to pick it up. Then yesterday, I left it on my office table. Badtrip! And the worse thing was, I needed to walk back to the office...under the rain...without my umbrella (lent it to my officemate since I'll be hitching a ride anyways). In short, para akong basang sisiw when I reached CITRA!

Thought everything will be okay. I have my wallet, I got my umbrella back, but I'm late. So I needed to walk fast to Shangri-La so I could gauge if there'll be no traffic in EDSA so i could take a bus instead. Bus means less walk and transfers unlike MRT. So I reached Shangri-La safely. And so I thought. While about to enter the back entrance, I slipped. Fortunately I regained my balance. Unfortunately, two officemates saw my clumsiness happen! Funny thing, ako pa nagsorry sa kanila. Wahahaha.

And to add insult to injury, nasira lang naman yung favorite shoes ko! Pucha naman talaga. So I now hate rainy days! I really do!

double celebration

The UP Fighting Maroons MBT has finally ended their yearlong drought and was able to strike first blood on the hapless NU Bulldogs. Sana hindi lang patikim to.

Rafael Nadal has ended the reign of Federer at grass by spoiling the latter's bid for a 6th straight Wimbledon crown. This is Rafa's first grand slam win other than Roland Garros. He also became the first man since Bjorn Borg to win both the French and Wimbledon on the same year. And this match kept me up until 4am this morning!

stranded @ bora - day3

June 22, 2008

The morning of day 3 wasn't any better. In fact, the weather got worse. We had our breakfast buffet at the rooftop of la Carmela since the in-house resto was somehow hit by the waves. It was scary in a way since the pool of the hotel was kinda elevated. And yet we woke up with sand everywhere. Sabi ko nga baka nagkatsunami na eh hindi pa namin alam.

By midday, the weather has slightly improved. I finally had the chance of dipping in the cold waters of Bora. The wind was still strong and the waves were still like that of Siargao. But it was fun. Parang mas ok pa nga yun kesa nung una kong punta several years back. For a change nga naman na hindi maaraw...walang sunburn! hehe.

And since the weather got better before lunchtime, we decided that we won't be extending our stay. Not until we found out that flights from Caticlan were all cancelled! Goodluck to us. So we needed to transfer hotel since our accommodation was until 1pm only. Fortunately we got one easily. And this was way better than La Carmela. I also got to taste the shakes of Jonah's at last. So good and so creamy! Several hours after, we decided to visit the Grotto since low tide na. Syempre photo ops ulit ang mga bata. The evening was just spent indoors while playing tong-its and pusoy dos since almost all establishments were closed. And then electricity went out! At kumukulo ang tyan ko! Great!
