We quarrel every week. And I’m getting tired of it already. Is it too much to demand for time and communication? I don’t think so because it’s what normal couples do, right? They talk and send SMS to each other especially if they don’t get to spend more time with each other that often anymore.
Sigh. This is one of the lows of having a relationship with a kid, I guess. I don’t know if I still have enough patience for this. I’m getting tired already. :(
Sorry for the sad post. I just need to vent this out.
Happy Holidays, though...

I had some issues with my life this past couple of days. It did not come to the point of me turning into alcohol or cigarettes, though. I never liked liquors and never turned to drugs anyway whenever I have problems, so there won’t be any chance that I’d end up in santa barbara drug alcohol rehab treatment center. When I feel sad, I may separate myself to the world so I can think. And in just a day or two, I’d be able to come back to my senses. Most of the time, in my solitude, I’ll realize that I never will be alone because I have my friends and family and a great God to help me in any adversities.
It’s just sad because sometimes I disappoint some people and might even hurt most of them but since they are real friends, they always forgive me.
I hope with my personal issues lately, I can patch things up with them.

It’s weekend once again! My favorite days of the week! :D
This weekend is extra special because it’s our Church’s Thanksgiving Day. It’s one of the annual events that all of us, members of the Church, look forward to.
Another year in our lives has passed by. A lot may have happened, be it good or bad, we still offer our thanks to our Lord, Almighty who gave us another year of life.
There are too much to be thankful for, personally. Words are just not enough to give to our Father in Heaven. That’s why, as much as I can, I spend my time doing my Church obligations. I still feel it’s not enough but I hope I was able to give glory and honor to Him.
Thank you, Dear Lord, for everything, especially for keeping me alive. You are indeed worthy to be praised!
Happy Thanksgiving to all the members of Iglesia Ni Cristo all over the world!

I want one of this! LOL!
One of my colleagues brought this poor life-size Teddy bear at the office to add to the team's Christmas decor. When I don't have a lot to do at work or wanted to get myself relieved from stress, I just give this Big Teddy a squeeze and a hug. And make fun with my office mates! Sometimes I keep hoping that Christmas won't be over so that Teddy and I can spend more time together. :D
How I wish someone will give me a teddy as big as this someday! :D
Happy Friday everyone!

One of the shows in BIO Channel that I recently get fond of watching is Storage Wars. Up until now, it still amazes me that they were able to put up a show about "wars" on storage units. Not exactly the bloody "war". It's about guys who basically bid over auctioned storage units.
The bidders in the show are: Barry (the collector), Dave (the pro), Darrell (the gambler) and Jarrod & Brandi (the newbies). They bid on a unit which they are at first not allowed to get in. They are given a 5-minute look at the storage unit from the doorway and wonder if the unit has a potential of having hidden treasures. They must have good eyes to win a jackpot from one of those units.
I’ve watched series of episodes already and got surprised several times on how each of them get lucky and how some of them get unfortunate. It’s like gambling, you know. It’s even amazing when one of them finds something that I thought don’t have value but, voila! The price of the treasure, when got sold out to collectors, was more than what they have bargained for the unit.
There was even an instance that Darrell the Gambler was able to find valuable silver dollar coins. He must have a morgan dollar price guide to know in just one glance that those coins are of high value.
These guys are funny in a lot of ways. Their differences make the show even more fun and exciting to watch.

My vacation leave for tonight was approved by my manager! I’m so glad that I don’t encounter any problems whenever I ask for extra day off. My boss said as long as I file my vacation leaves ahead of time and that no one had gotten the slot yet and I won’t be doing it too often, I can go on leave especially when it’s really important.
I’ll be out of the office tonight because the kids at Church are going to hold their Year-End Thanksgiving tomorrow. I’m one of those who’s going to help out with the activity. The kids are going to get a lot of goodies tomorrow! I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a day filled with fun for them.
I love long weekends. I used to have 3 days off at Convergys which is my previous employer. But I have to be at work, talking to upset people for 11 hours in 4 days a week. It was exhausting. My schedule right now here at Emerson is fair enough for me. I have normal weekends although I still work at night. My job is not anymore as stressful, anyway.
It’s Friday! Let's take care and enjoy the weekend ahead!

Honestly, Facebook is addictive. Some may not have realized it but Facebook, to most users, have eaten up most of their valuable time. I, myself, experience this. I spend a lot of time browsing through Facebook, ending up not able to accomplish more important personal chores. I even forget about updating my blogs because I always get caught up with my friends' stories at the famous social networking site for hours- commenting, chatting with some of them and clicking on the "LIKE" button. Haha!
Telecommunication companies also came up with letting their subscribers have access to Facebook anywhere they are. Well, as long as they get a WIFI service. They won't have to carry their laptops and reserve batteries like toshiba laptops batteries along with them because they can just use their phones to have access on Facebook. Ah! People just can't get enough of Facebook, can they?
As for me, I can live a day without Facebook. I guess I'm trying to resist getting addicted to it as much as I can. With my schedule and all that's going on with my busy life, it help me not to dwell on the internet that much. Although sometimes when I have the time to log on to my Facebook account, I feel a little behind on my friends' statuses. But it's okay. I can still somehow find time to browse a little bit of their stories and comment and "LIKE". :D
I'm not really addicted to Facebook. :) How about you?

I actually feel like just wanting to doze off tonight if I only have a choice. Sigh. Well I have to prepare for work now. I hope I won't be bombarded with too much work load tonight.
Monday, October 17, 2011
I got a handful of things to do because I just didn't do them right away when I have the time. I just dozed off to la-la-land instead of getting things done on time. Sigh! I have to change this attitude because this is becoming a habit. Now I have disappointed some friends of mine because I didn't come on time on the meeting that we set yesterday. It really was all my fault. I hope she's not gonna stay mad at me.
I really have to learn to organize my stuff and manage my time well. Or else I will mess everything up especially my important to-do list. As for my friends, I hope I'd be forgiven.
The preparations were a handful. We had to buy bunch of stuffs like tokens for the attendees, birthday celebrants' "little" memorabilia, name tags, invitations, printouts and a lot more. Not to mention getting every youth members of our Church locale get informed of the get together. We were given a week and a half to prepare. It was such a challenge to our group.
One of the goals of the get together is to make each one of the youth members participate in every activities that our Church administration proposed. Iglesia Ni Cristo is always keen on uniting each members of the Church. To have one goal, to serve and glorify our Father in heaven.
I didn't bring my camera because I forgot to charge it that's why I can't post the pictures of the event. But I can say it turned out to be a successful event, all to God's glory! And we were all thankful to have gotten through it by the help of our Almighty God. :D

Joy has been a great friend to us. She's one of the kindest and sweetest. That's why when we heard she went home, we were all very excited to see her. Thank God most of us find the time to see Joy.
We went to a nearby Yellow Cab restaurant at the Glorietta Mall where we spent hours of chitchatting. Two mothers in the group brought with them their kids. I love hugging and cuddling with both of the boys, especially the 2-month old Baby Keon. Lajon has always been cuddly. LOL! I just love kids.
I brought my camera but forgot to charge the batteries. Thankfully, Julie didn't mind taking all the pictures and uploaded them on Facebook. Now I have additional photos that I can add to my photo collage from this circle of friends.
These get together have become rare because all of us have already resigned at Convergys. We already have separate lives. We seldom see each other that's why when we had the chance, we made the most of it.
Thank you girls for the wonderful moment and for the friendship and love! I miss all of you!

I'm in a relationship right now. LOL! This is quite a revelation. I bet most of you won't care but I just want to write about it here. To those who know me and get to read this article, don't you worry guys, I'm not yet about to buy a scott kay jewelry and get married soon. I'm still taking my time! :D
We met at Church. We've been friends for quite a while, got interested with each other and later on decided to get ourselves into this relationship. He's fun to be with and, well, he's good looking but he's way too young for me. I haven't told my Mom about my lovelife because I don't want to get myself into trouble. I know for sure she's not going to approve of my decision that's why when it pertains to my lovelife, she's always the last to know. :)
I haven't been in a relationship for years now. It feels like it's something new for me. Epecially when I think about the age gap.
In love? I'm not really sure but I'm happy with what we have right now. I don't want to expect more from the relationship. Come what may! Yeah right, I'm the same old happy-go-lucky ME. :D

I have been blogging for years now and I can say that not only did it help me with my writing "prowess" (LOL! I'm still not a PRO as you can see), it definitely also helped me financially. Even though I have a 9-hour job 5days a week and have been very busy with my Church obligations, I make sure to find time to atleast update my blog and finish my online assignments on time.
Lately I've been so lazy doing updates on my blogs but hopefully I'll find more time to create new posts so that I'll make more profit from blogging. I would love to be able to earn more money and get more electronic payments. Since these websites of mine have already been established, I should not have any reason to give them both up.
Maybe I just need an inspiration to create good posts. Or push myself to do better with my blogging career. There's still so much to learn so that I'll be successful on the blogging world. I just hope I'd find the time and enthusiasm to do it. :)

I myself have been a witness to another great activity prepared by our Church Administration. I am really glad I was able to join. Not only did I have fun, I'm glad to be able to make use of my talent in serving the Lord.
Our group actually joined the competition with the hopes of being able to be part of the finalists for Musikang Atin. Fortunately, with the grace of God, we got in! We're headed to the final round of the chorale competition!
We are all going to work real hard for the competition. I'm just so happy to learn that we were one of the top 5 finalists. We are going to double our effort and hopefully get the first prize! :D
Here are some of the pictures taken last Sunday:
And more to come on the Musikang Atin 2011 Grand Finale! :D

Now that I've realized all these, I'll try to find time on my weekend to watch a movie or two. Hmmm. What are the new feel good movies nowadays? Any suggestions? :)

I used to have a lady who comes over at my house to do my laundry but she's no where to be found lately. Someone told me she's already got a job somewhere. Now I don't have a choice but to do the laundry myself.
I still wonder why my hands kept getting bruised. I think I've tried all types of detergent, looked for mild detergent bars and powder, but the result to my hands is the same. The wounds are really painful. I wonder if the hard water which dries the skin have something to do with my bruises. I actually just learned about the hard water and the use of a water softener to eliminate unwanted contents of hard water. Aquatell.com water softeners have this equipments ready to ship and is easy to install.
Hmm.. Could that be the solution to my laundry problem? I might as well give it a try, don't I? :)

"Miss Universe 3rd Runner Up... Ms. Philippines, Shamcey Supsup!". After hearing that announcement, I was a bit disappointed. I was really expecting that our candidate, Shamcey Supsup, is going to take home the Ms. Universe crown!
A lot of people questioned the result of the beauty pageant. Why not Shamcey when she was the only one who didn't have an interpreter, answered the question with confidence and delivered the best answer during the Q&A portion of the beauty pageant? Even Oprah had this to say:
"If the only basis is the Q&A portion, after having been trimmed down to 5, Ms. Phils. deserved to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answer as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Ms. Phils. answered straight to the point." -Oprah Winfrey (via NBC News)
Here was the question and Shamcey's answer during the Q&A portion:
If you would have to change your religious beliefs, would you marry the man you love? Why or why not?
"If I would have to change my religious beliefs, I would not marry the person I love. Because the first person I love is my God who created me. I have my faith, my principles. And if that man really loves me, he should also love my God."
A lot of us, especially we Filipinos, expected that our candidate is going to win. She sounded very confident and was really very beautiful every time she walks on the stage. She has that grace that everyone may have noticed.
I don't know what happened with how the judges scored the pageant. I'm still proud that another Filipina has been recognized all over the Universe. Even though she wasn't able to take home the crown, she's the most beautiful. And for us Filipinos, Shamcey Supsup is our Ms. Universe! :)

There are a lot of things I'd like to change in my room. I just don't have time. Hopefully this weekend I'd be able to somehow beautify my little pad and make some changes. That is if I have the time. Or do it some other long weekend. I think I have to change my floor mat and check out scion tc custom floor mats online. Whatever is not too expensive for me. And also if I have the time and money, I'll change the paint on my walls. :D
I love entertaining guests every now and then. Although it's tiring sometimes, it's actually cheaper for me to bring them in my pad than spend a lot of money in fast food chains just to bond with my buddies.
Wednesday, August 31, 2011
What's up with me? Well, I'm a little bit inspired but I won't tell you yet what it's all about. I'm just happy right now and enjoy whatever it is that keeps me inspired. LOL! Work is good. I'm still loving it. I'm watching my diet but I'm really hoping to get back to the gym. Two months of not been able to workout make me miss losing weight. I don't wanna be fat again. I hope I'll have time to look for the nearest gym or I'd end up checking out some appetite suppressants for women. Besides, that would be easier. I won't have to be spending a lot of time sweating it all out! :)
I actually just finished cooking for dinner. I hope this friend of mine drops by and help me eat all this up. :)
I am really happy and I want to make the best out of my happiness! :)

This coming September 5, which is United State of America's holiday - Labor Day, that happens every 1st Monday of September, is also going to be a no-work day for us, working in Emerson Electric (Asia) Ltd.! Isn't that great? This is one thing I love about my new employer. We share the holidays of U.S. of A.! I just love it!
Now I'm thinking about what to do on that long weekend... I would love to be with nature, if I could. Some Americans will be on for a fishing trip for sure and try orlando fishing guides or go snorkeling somewhere with their family and loved ones. If I only have the money to spend to go out of town, I would really love to do that! Sigh.
I actually don't have plans yet for Labor Day. I might end up spending it with friends right here. :)

I had a great time on my weekend, though. I felt really productive because I spent most of it doing Church activities.
Last Saturday, we did an activity called Blood Letting. I still wasn't able to donate some of my blood since I had work the previous night. Although I wasn't qualified to donate blood, I still went there and helped out. I sang few songs for them and met new friends from other Church locales. Before lunch time, I was already so sleepy so I went home, not able to finish the activity.
Sunday is always a busy Church day for me. There were just so much to do but I'm glad I was able to get through to all my obligations and duties and had a very peaceful sleep last night.
I think I'm ready for whatever this week is gonna bring me. I have God to back me up all the way until another weekend! :)

But recently, I conquered that fear! During my vacation with cousin Michelle, her husband Jon and our friend Raquel at Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan last month, I decided to snorkel! I'm so glad I did because it was then that I was able to appreciate the beauty of the ocean. I've seen live colorful fishes underneath and fed them with my bare hands! I liked doing it. That's when we hopped on three different islands in our 2nd day at Palawan, I took advantage of the moments being in each islands. I wasn't scared of snorkeling anymore.
We are planning to go back in Palawan. I also got an invitation from a friend who has another friend that owns a resort over there. I just don't know when I'll be back there but I'll make sure to get myself an underwater scuba mask and try scuba diving on my next Palawan trip.
I'm not really a fan of hers. I even didn't like her because of her bad publicity before. Her showing off as a bratt in one of the T.V. shows together with her ex-bestfriend Nicole. I just can't remember the title of that show. Her wearing of skimpy clothes, where sometimes she looked like she's wearing just breast pasties in some Men's magazines.
But she's really beautiful. She's like a barbie doll, actually. And during her interviews, she sounded like she meant it when she said. "I liked everything about the Philippines."
Well I hope she really loved it here. Why would she invest her money here in the Philippines if she didn't, right? I hope she'll keep coming back here and expand some more of her empire in my country! :)

It's just amazing because even our Church pastor, who's also single, have been joining our bonding moments. Saturdays were set as our "bonding day" actually. We tell each other jokes and always plan on how to make other youth members of our locale also participate actively in our activities. The favorite thing that we do when we're together is EAT! LOL! And I've gained weight because of that! Why is it so much fun to eat when you have a bunch of friends around you that you forget about your diet???
There were even instances that we help each other out, like if something is broken in someone else's home, like my computer for instance. I didn't have to bring it to the shop to have it fixed. I had one of my friends fix it for free! :) And also when one of our friends needed help to fix her door, someone came with micrometers on hand! By sharing moments with them, I'm just glad that I have friends here who listen to whatever I say and accept me as what I am. They're always there to cheer me up and keep me busy.
I'm really glad to have some sort of a family right here. It's feels like a home away from home. :)

Now, I'm able to write about the last entry of my Puerto Prinsesa Trip! This is definitely long overdue! LOL! It's about a month ago after my trip with my friends! But here it is, without anymore a dues!
So... The 3rd day at Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan was more exciting for me because Michelle, Kuya Jon, Ate Raquel and I were able to do island hopping with some other tourists!In this trip, I faced one of my fears - to snorkel! We went to 3 different islands and I took advantage of snorkeling on all the islands we spent a few hours at! LOL! I have been so afraid of doing that when I was with my best friend Czarina on our Camiguin adventure some years ago. But when I was there, I was able to snorkel and was really in awe when I saw the sea creatures underneath the blue/green sea!
That's about my trip! I was the first to leave Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan on the 4th day because my flight was set early. I still didn't get enough of the place. The gang and I were planning to do another escapade in another part of Palawan which is El Nido. We've heard beautiful things about El Nido so that will be our next stop! :)
Til my next escapade!
For now, I've budgeted whatever money I have left. I have to keep my fingers crossed to make for whatever is left until the next pay out! I hope I won't have to spend for something unnecessary anymore! I better learn to say NO and be firm whenever I have to say that word! :)
I know I shouldn't worry because I know God will provide my needs. Like I always say, I have faith in Him! :)

Alright! Here it goes:
I was excited on the 2nd day of our Puerto Prinsesa vacation. As soon as my cousin Michelle and her husband Jon arrived at the airport around 12noon, we headed to the famous Underground River which is now one of the entries for the new 7 Wonders of Nature. I cast my vote already! :)
Anyway, it was about 2 hours drive from Puerto Prinsesa airport. Kuya Jon has been taking great pictures while we we were on our way. Here are some of them:
We still have to take a boat ride to be at the Underground River. I was already so amazed at how clean my surrounding is! Even the sea, it's all blue and green and I can definitely see the corals underneath the water! The weather wasn't good that day. Yet the rain didn't stop us from exploring Puerto Prinsesa!
There were plenty of tourists like us who were queued to see the Underground River. We have to wait for our turn so we took a lot of pictures to not get bored! :)
And finally it was our turn to enter the cave!!! :)
It was so dark inside the cave. We had just one big flashlight held by one of the passengers on the boat. The boatman was at the same time our tour-guide. He's very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. He showed us a lot of rock structures and made some jokes while talking about the cave. There were bats flying all around the cave but it didn't scare us! :)
The tour inside the cave took maybe half an hour. When we got out of the cave we took some more pictures and saw the mischievous monkeys on the seashore! We held on our purses which were packed in plastic bags because the monkeys are eyeing on our belongings! The tour-guide already warned us of the monkeys being the forest thieves. :)
LOL! One of the monkey went near me! That's why the face!
We strolled along the seashores despite the pouring rain! I actually took a plunge on the sea even though the waves are big! :) I didn't mind being alone. My companions waited for the rain to stop but it didn't. I was soaking wet when we were on our way home. :)
We went to sleep early that evening. I was so excited for the next day. The next itinerary for our 3rd day in Puerto Prinsesa was island hopping and snorkeling!
To be continued....
Tonight, I'll be back at work. I'm not really that busy at the office last week. I'm hoping it's going to be the same not-too-busy- work week. But I guess I better make myself busy and read some more things that I should learn about my job. Or else, I'd look like a fool when my training is done. :)
I know I've mentioned a lot of times that I love my job so far. I like the atmosphere at work. Everyone is friendly. My team mates are very helpful especially if I am working on some orders. Although some of them are working while listening to music on their ipods which are basically in ear headphones, they don't mind if I disturb them from work and sound tripping whenever I have questions or I need them to check something on my work. I just don't want to mess up my orders this time. :)
I'll be working again tonight. I am looking forward to another week of fun at work! :) Because after the weekdays are gonna be weekend again. Hopefully next weekend, I would be able to enjoy my "Alone-ness"! LOL!

To you, my brother dear - Aleksander Remus Cruz a.k.a TIBO, I hope for you to be strong in your FAITH. May God continue to bless you. I know there are a lot of things that we don't agree about but I you're my brother and you're always gonna be in my heart. I always pray for you, honestly! :)
Enjoy your day!
