I caught me some BigFish!


One of the most memorable weekend happened to me.

I know you know how it feels like when you've prepared for one big event from hair to shoes and then suddenly, one small detail could almost ruin your entire weekend.

It took almost a week for me to prepare for last Saturday's event. I was to go to my first BigFish Event so I literally took all the time to prep myself up. I bought the perfect outfit on Tuesday and because they didn't have my size, I took a larger one instead. I went to the tailor the following day to have it resized. They promised they'd finish it by Saturday afternoon.

Friday came and I thought nothing could go wrong this time. I was soo wrong.

6PM I received a text message from the tailor's assistant.

"Sir, ok lang po bang Monday afternoon na makuha ung damit? Nagkasakit po kasi ung mananahi."

I lost it. I was still in the office and I couldn't do anything about it.

Sinigurado ata nilang hindi ko na makukuha ung damit ko kasi 5:30PM ang closing nila.

I went out of the office at around 8 and I called my friend para magpasama dahil bibili din daw siya ng kanya.

It was a lost cause that night. I knew it, I just didn't want to accept it.

We were in the mall until it closed. Walang napala. Tumambay na lang kami ng McDo para magkwentuhan until 11:30PM.

Then we decided to go. Pumuntang Club si Basol at dumaan na lang ako para batiin ung friends ko then I went home.

Buti na lang nakabili ako at the last minute the following day. Saturday, 9PM. I was still with Basol dahil kahit siya cramming pa din. Haha

I bought mine at Topman and FnH and Basol bought his at FnH too.

"Bakit ba tayo masyadong concerned sa isusuot natin?" bigla naming narealize. We didn't know the answer. And we really don't care. It was like birthdays. Kailangan may something na bago.



The rest of the night was literally a blur. I had so much fun at the party. A.venue's really a nice place to launch events like that. People were beautiful. Music was smashin' and the atmosphere was intense!



Next event,

GODSKITCHEN
08.08.08.
A.Venue Makati.

I sure won't miss that one. :)

Susugod na ako.


Pumasok na ang tubig sa sapatos ko.
Madumi na din ang damit ko dahil sa pinagsamang ulan at alikabok.
Ramdam ko na din ang bigat ng kapit ng pantalon ko dahil kanina pa siya basa mula paa hanggang tuhod.

Kanina pa ako naghihintay na tumila ang ulan pero mukhang wala siyang balak tumigil.

'Gusto ko ng umuwi.' hiling ko.

Ilang sasakyan na din ang dumaan sa harap ko. Ilang tao na din ang nakasabay ko dito para magpatila.

Pero ako ang naiiwan mag-isa.

Pilit kong tiningnan kung nasa kabilang kalye pa din ang nagtitinda ng payong.

'Sana bumili na lang pala ako.' naisip ko.

Pero wala na ding pag-asang lumipat siya sa lugar ko. Hindi na ako aasa.

Ganito na lang ba lagi ang sitwasyon ko?

'Ilang oras pa siguro uli at makakauwi na din ako.' pilit kong kinumbinsi ang sarili ko.


Sa lakas pagbuhos ng ulan sa harap ko, nakalimutan kong mas malakas ang nasa likod ko. Paglingon ko, siya naman ang saktong pagtindi ng hangin para lalo akong mabasa.

'Bahala na,' sabi ko sa sarili ko.'Kung ito talaga ang gusto Mo.'

Tapos na akong magsisi.
Bahala na.
Susugod na ako.

konting tulong?

"Ang swerte ko talaga! Buti na lang pala tinatamad kang maglakad ngayon kasi ikaw pala ang magbibigay sa akin ng tulong! Salamat, Lord tlga! Hayy.." sabi ni Mang Bert na driver ng sinasakyan kong taxi.

Nagpapasalamat na siya, wala pa nga akong sinasabing tutulungan ko siya.

Umaga nung nakausap ko si Manong. May appointment ako sa isang Government office. Work-related.

*sighs*

Wala na akong pera. At mukhang mabibigay ko pa sa knya ung natitira kong pera. D ko pa naman alam saan pwede magwithdraw ng pera.

At dahil sa kakapasalamat niya sa akin ng wala pa naman akong ginagawa, bumigay na lang ako. Tutal uuwe daw cia sa probinsya at kailangan ng pamasahe dahil pinapaalis na ang pamilya nia. Puro pa naman daw babae ang mga anak niya. Mga bata pa.

'Hayy.. Manong dapat totoo yang sinasabi niyo ah..' naisip ko.

At pagbaba ng taxi, nalinis bigla ang wallet ko. Magwiwithdraw na lang uli ako after ng appointment.

I miss 5:30

Just got home from work. While I was in the FX a while ago, naisip ko na parang may nakakalimutan ako na dati kong ginagawa.

Then I remembered my blog.

*sighs*

I've been too busy lately that I forgot to update this since Monday. Weird kasi dati everyday kaya ko, ngayon nakuha ko pang makalimutan. hehe

Nakakapanibagong nakakalungkot na nakakatuwa.
Nakakamiss din pala ung umuuwi ka ng may araw pa. Tsaka ung habang nagwowork ka, may mga ka-chat ka pa. Ngayon, hindi ko na kaya sa sunud-sunod na work.

Hindi naman ako nagrereklamo dahil in the first place, matagal ko ng ginusto maranasan ung ganito. Kanina kausap ko ung isang officemate ko, habang nagsasalita ako ng gagawin niya, bigla ko na lang nakalimutan ung sinasabi ko after niya magsalita. haha

Masaya kanina sa work. May libreng lunch uli dahil may meeting with another company like ours. Talagang I've found the right job for me. Sobrang hectic lang lately dahil sa ilang turnovers na kailangang matutunan agad.

Ngayong medyo nakakapag adjust na ako sa work, I need to revive my social life again. Para naman makapagrelax at makatikim ng alak. :)

Movie Line Up

For lack of a better thing to do yesterday, I browsed for upcoming movies I'd definitely want to see.

Dark Knight: Even before the passing of Heath Ledger, this film created so much noise already. And the fact that I enjoyed watching the first one, I'll be lining up for the next one when this film hits the cinemas.

Get Smart: Just the Steve Carell - Anne Hathaway tandem makes this film interesting enough. I've been seeing the trailer since early this year. So I'll be looking forward to some great laughs while watching this.

WallE: Who doesn't like animated movies? I'd definitely see this one with my sister. It's fun watching animated movies with kids around.

HellBoy II: I saw the first installment last year. But I already forgot how the story went. I just know who the characters are. So this means, I won't be looking forward to this one's story but the kick ass special effects it will offer.

Wanted: Another Tomb Raider-ish type of Angelina Movie. I'd like to see how this one goes. I love seeing women in action!

The X Files: I only saw the first one on video (VHS pa nun!) and like HellBoy, I completely forgot everything about the movie after a few days. But I enjoy movies like these. Sci-Fi Mystery-thriller.

Happening @ Inuman

June 14, 2008.
05:15PM.
Still feeling the alcohol I drank last night (or was it just this morning?)

Since Friday kahapon, nagkayayaan manuod ng sine ang friends ko. We decided to take Jeland and Kerwin to Trinoma since hindi pa sila nakakapanuod ng movie dun. Mga taga Makati kasi. The Happening daw papanuodin namin kasi un lang ang bago aside from The Incredible Hulk.



9:45PM pa ung showing so we went down to Sbarro to have our dinner muna. Ang alam ko, si Ryan lang ang gutom (palagi naman..) pero mas madami pa atang kinain sina Ker at Jeland.




We went back to the cinemas after dinner and buti na lang naabutan namin ung trailers.

The movie gave me chills. First time na sobrang kinilabutan buong katawan ko dahil sa sobrang graphic ng scenes. Dead people hanging in trees. People poking their necks with sticks. Tapos there was this person na ni-lawnmower ang sarili.

Ito lang ata ung movie na pati ung hangin at plants kinatakutan. Tsaka tama bang unahan ang wind? Paranoid haha
Entertaining pero not the movie you'd watch over and over again.


After the movie, tinopak ang friends ko at kunwari magtatanong kung saan ako sasakay pauwe. Actually, 'tayo' ang term nila. San daw 'kami' sasakay pauwe ng bahay.

mga promotor habang nasa jeep pauwe ng bahay

Mga walang awa sa may sakit. Nagkayayaan uminom sa bahay at nagpakalasing sa Rhum at Coke.

At as usual, unang nalasing si Ryan habang may kung anu anung kalokohang ginagawa. We played 'Never Ever' at hanggang nauwe sa Truth or Consequence (pero dahil 4 lang kami, lageng truth na lang)



may mga tama na kami

Still sick

* sighs*

What a week!

I'm still sick. Been coughing nonstop. Even my friends and co-workers have noticed.

Sabi nga ng boss ko kanina, "your coughs sound nasty na nga eh :)"

She even gave me advise to take vit C and lotsa sleep. Good boss, no?

I'm happy with what I've accomplished for the entire week (even with all the coughing). Just signed docs for regularization (should it be s or z? hmm). The months of hard work really paid off. And I still want more. hehe

Anyhoo, I'll logout na. Have to meet up my friends pa para naman makapag unwind. :)

I'm sick

Yesterday was kinda odd. After work, I went out of the office and headed for the gym. Dahil sa sobrang pagod at hina ng katawan ko, instead of riding the usual MRT Buendia, I accidentally took the MRT Guadalupe route. Hindi ko napansin ung Guadalupe dahil nagfocus ako sa MRT.

Kaya pala medyo off ung route kasi iba nasakyan ko, I thought.

So when I reached the train station, I inserted my card and waited for the train to arrive.

Ang dami namang tao at this side of the train, naisip ko.

Napansin ko ung Teleperformance Bldg sa may Shaw kaya bigla akong nagpanic. Maling side ung nasakyan ko!

Baba agad ako ng train then transferred to the other side. All this time, I've been coughing non stop.

I've been sick since Sunday. Napadami siguro ako ng inom kaya nagkaroon ako ng sipon at ubo. (walang konek no? hehe)

Buti na lang at maluwag ung nasakyan ko kaya nakaupo ako agad. Hindi ko talaga kaya tumayo ngayon ng matagal.

When I reached Ayala, bigla na akong tinamad magworkout. Nanghihina ako at tinatamad na maggym.

*sighs*

Lumalaki na tiyan ko. Tsk tsk. Kaso hindi ko din naman kakayanin magbuhat ngayon sa kalagayan ko.

Kaya when I reached Taft, nagdecide na lang akong umuwe. So I got off the train and headed for the stairs when I suddenly realized, why the heck am I using the stairs when I can ride the MRT pauwe? Tipid pa dahil bayad na ang ride ko.

*sighs*

Masama talaga ang nag-iisip habang may sakit.

So bumaba ulit ako at sumakay ng train pauwe. Medyo nakakainis lang ung katabi ko dahil everytime uubo ako, titingin siya sakin. Walang palya.

"Umuubo ako. May sakit ako. Ngayon ka lang nakakita ng taong umuubo?" gusto kong sabihin sa kanya. It's not like I'm doing it infront of his face. Nagcocover naman ako ng panyo.

Sabi nga ni KC, "My mom raised me well.."

And then I realized, I spent half of my entire workout time in the MRT.

drunken master

Yesterday was one of those days na parang ang daming nangyari ng hindi mo aakalaing aabot lang ng ilang oras.

Last week pa plan (ni Ryan) na lumabas kami -- Ako, Kerwin, Ryan, Jeland and Janno -- para magmovie marathon since 2 movies ang halos sabay nagpalabas. Narnia and Kung Fu Panda.

I've seen the first installment of Narnia and I got hooked instantly. Parang Harry Potter series lang although I haven't read any of the 7 books of the Chronicles of Narnia. Siguro it's time to get copies and read them na din para hindi nahuhuli sa trend. hehe



Maagang nagkita sina Ryan at Kerwin para magreview sa Starbucks 6750 (kahit na alam kong si Kerwin lang magrereview at si Ryan eh magccruise lang sa paligid). Tapos dumating naman si Jannoe then si Jeland (bagong binyag na party animal haha). Nung dumating ako, akala ko darating pa ung girl friend ni Janno at Ryan, si Greta kaso hindi na daw tumuloy kaya ako na lang pala hinihintay nila.

We went straight to Glorietta to get tickets at medyo nag aalala na kami dahil ang daming tao.


(me, Jeland and Janno habang naghihintay makabili ng ticket sina Ryan and Kerwin)

Buti na lang at maaga kami sa pila (free seating kasi) at nakapasok agad. Sadly, hindi masyadong maganda ung place namin dahil nasa harap kami. Na twing gumagalaw ung characters from left to right, pati ulo namin sumusunod sa kanila.

Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

The story continues after 1300 years in Narnia (only a year in our present time) with Narnia being almost conquered by Telmarines. Planning to take the crown for himself, Miraz takes matters into his own hands by trying to assasinate Prince Caspian only to fail. Caspian, aided by his professor, escapes into to forrest where he meets Narnians whom they've thought to be extinct. He uses the horn and accidentally calls the help of the former Kings and Queens of Narnia to save Narnia and get back what is rightfully his, throne to the Kingdom of Telmarines.

I was a bit disappointed with this movie. Maybe too much was said before this movie was launched kaya nag expect ako na it will surpass The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.

I thought Caspian is going to be the focus on this one. Pero from what I've seen, parang background lang siya dun sa 4 siblings. Off-putting pa ung accent niya. Nice cameo pa ng Ice Witch at the middle part. It would have been an interesting twist kung narelease nga siya. (Although hindi talga pwede kasi hindi un ang nangyari sa book.)

My favorite part was when the mouse was carrying their boss kasi namatay tapos binuhay ni Lucy. May background music pa. Animation and special effects were superb. Even small details were exquisite.

The next movie we watched was Kung Fu Panda. Na sobrang nakakatawa.

Kung Fu Panda

Unfortunately, malevolent warrior Snow Leopard, Tai Long, having escaped from the defenses of a multitude of rhinos, now returns to take what he claims is his, the Dragon Warrior Scroll. All seems lost until the Great Master Oogway (Turtle, voice of Randall Duk Kim) chooses the Dragon Warrior. The problem is, he points to the lazy, noodle-making Po, the Panda (voice of Jack Black) making Master Shifu (voice of Dustin Hoffman) question if Po is really capable of beating the most notorious creature in the world. With the help of the Furious Five (Crane, Mantis, Monkey, Snake and Tigress) and dumplings, Po becomes the master he has always dreamed of.

I was expecting animation and storyline like Shrek or Madagascar, I was wrong. This was waay better. Plus may bonus pang magandang fighting sequences.

I haven't seen a movie where I was, not just smiling, but laughing. Usually I would just smile with the funny scenes and remarks of the characters pero this one really made me laugh hard. From the beginning pa lang, I was laughing na dahil sa lines ni Po.

"How can we repay you?" asked one pig.

"There is no fee for awesomeness and attractiveness!" said Po.

Grabeng linya. Haha tapos there was another one where he said that people were blinded by his awesomeness and audacity.

Special effects really made characters and background images pop out of the screens. Plus the roster of voice talents were amazing, from Dustin Hoffman to Jackie Chan to Angelina Jolie and Lucy Liu.

My favorite scene was the training of Master Shifu and Po. basta pagkain talaga, makikipagpatayan!

After the movie, dapat uuwe na kami. Ang kaso, inatake kami ng gimik dahil weekend kaya nagkayayaan na lumabas at mag inuman. Masyadong maligalig si Jeland sumayaw kaya kami na lang nina Janno, Ryan at Kerwin (at ang pasulpot-sulpot na French) ang nakapag inuman to the point of being drunk. First time pa ni Kerwin lumabas dun kaya sana nag enjoy din cia as much as we did.




We went home at around 4am without Jeland dahil ginigiba pa ata niya ang dance floor...literally. Haha

Friday Lunchout sa GB


Dahil sa Friday nanaman kahapon, naglunch out uli kami nina JP at Billy. This time, they felt na masyado na kaming mayaman at nagdecide silang sa Krocodile Grille kami kumain sa GB.

Mejo matagal dumating ang order kaya nagpicture na lang muna habang pinagdidiskitahan namin ung free unlimited (DAW) na chips nila. Wala naman mciadong tao sa Grille kaso pinuyat ata ung mga cook nila kagabi dahil after 30mins, wala pa din ung food namin.


Magrereklamo na sana kami sa tagal nung nagsimula ng dumating ang mga pagkain. Seafoods Soup, Crispy Fried Chicken at KareKare. Isama pa ang bottomless iced tea na 56years bago nila irefill dahil ung mga waiters eh laging MIA.



(masyado na kaming gutom para kuhanan pa ung karekare)

As usual, puro kulitan habang namumuna ng mga tao sa labas ng resto.


(magpicture daw kami habang pinipicture-an ang isa't isa.)

Pati ang live crocodiles (na akala ko mga plastic lang) eh gustong pagdikistahan ni JP. Nagjejerjer daw kasi ung 2 reptiles.

Gusto daw niya hawakan kaso nakacover ng glass.

"Try kaya nating basagin ung glass?" sabi ni JP.

Sana sineryoso na lang niya para naman may mas magandang nangyari sa resto nila. Puro kasi (take note) halakhak, hindi tawa, halakhak talaga ang mga maririnig. Parang kulang pa ang oxygen na hinihigop nila kaya todo nganga ang mga tao. Muntik ko na nga makita yung internal organs ng isa.

At dahil lunchout ito, at sina Billy at JP ang kasama ko, 2 hours nanaman ang lunch! Sa dami ng work ko, kinaya ko pang magpaabot ng 2hours tapos sa GB pa! Next time, libre talaga dapat to ni JP.

After namin kumain (at tumambay saglit habang nagyoyosi sila), bumalik na kami sa mga offices namin. Mejo pinagsisisihan pa namin ni Billy dahil ang araw eh sinakto talagang sumikat ng matindi nung kami na ung naglalakad sa open space ng Ayala!

"Wag muna tayong magsalita. Mind over matter!" sabi ni Billy para daw hindi namin masyadong maramdaman ung init.

"Buti na lang hindi ka nakalong sleeves ngayon katulad ng dati! haha jabar ka nun!" sabi ko.
