To All of You Reading This

I might not greet you guys on the 25th so here's an advanced greeting. We'll be going to Manila so the computer seat is vacant...

Enjoy the season, guys. Thanks for making blogging sooo much fun.
"Thank you God for the gift of these wonderful people. Continue to guide and shower them and their loved ones with blessings."

Happy Birthday na rin pala kay Pareng Gasti...Pompyang ito! Magkabirthday pa kayo ni Jesus Christ. Hee-hee.

Peace out everyone. =)

My Birthday Shebang

Un-effing-believable. I'm already 21 years old. Gaah! This birthday is different because I had no cake. We were too satiated with the yummy food at Gumbo to pig out on cake. And besides, there's no appealing cake selection in Red Ribbon.

Sorry, walang blow out. As of the moment, your Lola KC is still jobless (and broke) for the time being. Saka na lang when I get a kickass job. Anyway, here's a few photos off of my birthday shebang. I'm too lazy to upload all of it as of now.

Hah! You might be wondering how I'd wandered off at Zirkoh. Well, my friend Mimi invited me to come and watch "A Most Talked About Performance". I thought it was Bamboo (or the PGH-Ortho Band..Haha!) so I agreed to come. Hainaco, siya na nga ang nagyaya, hindi pa nakasama. Long story. I won't talk about it and who the performers are because it's not safe for dinner. *LOL*

Needless to say, I had fun. Just wait for the nth part of my birthday, I'm going to blow my candles. I repeat: pigging out isn't safe for birthday celebrators.

21 Years and Still Counting

Drama Queen Days are over.

Myspace Graphics
Thanks to all who greeted me.
Love you, Guys.

..I'm still over the moon. I'll just blog about it the next day...wala sa akin yung cam so I couldn't post some photos.

* The image here is the same thing that my friend, Mimi posted on my Overnight Jologs page.

Not A Joke

In a matter of three days, it's my birthday. But I'm not at all thrilled about it because people have been expecting me to adjust to whatever whoosis that they want. How about celebrating my birthday like I want it? Sa 21 lang ako magpapabida kasi kapag ordinaryong araw naman di ako bida. After all it's my day...

Try Again.

Kainez naman, feeling ko tuloy wa care sila. That's the feeling that I hate the most, when nobody cares. Actually I'm sad. Ewan. Baka ka-dramahan ko lang ito.

On a lighter note, baka may surprise. Hahaha!

Whatevs. I'll just keep humans posted for any developments. I am formulating a 3 day celebration on my own if all of it seems hopeless. Lakas ng fightinf spirit...ayoko kasing maging malungkot, nakakapangit.

Anyway, I finally found these songs in the net. These two are songs from my childhood that the adult (kuno) in me can relate to. Yung Forevermore, wala akong makita na original, but I downloaded the original version.

jed madela - forevermore

atlantic starr - always

P.S. Mike, those are what I was supposed to send. =)

There are times that I'm wishing...
that I don't want to wake up
after the night's slumber
I want to find myself waking up...
Months after all of this
I didn't ask for this to happen
but it's happening to me.
That's why I want to sleep througout this ordeal
so when I wake up, it'll be all over

and FYI: This is NOT a suicidal post. Nagfi-feeling makata lang. =p

I'm Not An Accessory Critic/Environmentalist

I've been seeing that a lot of stores in the malls are now selling eco bags. I guess that's because Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago's bill has been approved or maybe the store owners were inspired of the mad rush for this popular eco bag:

Image Source

...the "I'm Not A Plastic Bag" by Anya Hindmarch.

This bag is like, everywhere, be it a knockoff or the original thing. But I have never seen anyone use the bag for its "plastic bag" purpose because it's been used as a purse.

Anyway, I know that someone will think of an ingenious way of topping this. There has been spin-offs labeled as "I'm Not A Smug Twat" and "I'm Not An Anya Hindmarch Bag". But I'm thinking of something like: Coffee shops will design a vacuum flask or tumbler marked "I'm Not a Paper Cup" and that sort of thing.

And I hope that with this eco bag fad, the use of plastic bags will be decreased...as well as weird looks at the supermarket because we brought our own bags. That's because I don't like to see the scenes from Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" happening next week.

Yun lang.

Jeez! It's been quite a while since I last updated my blog. Let me see...

Ok. So these are some things I want to blog about:

Forgive and Forget

I have forgiven the Whore House Peeps and Jollibeeyatch (a.k.a. Anak ni Zuma) months ago. I haven't actually had good reasons to forgive them...all I know is that I won't waste my time in all these "imbyerna-ness" just because they're bitter about their own lives. Definitely not my problem. And besides, the Karma police came out to get them. Fast. I'm back to being cool with them but I won't disclose everything anymore...just tidbits na lang. Because I'm a good sport, I'm going to show up on the Christmas party that a lot of them will attend.

That's me. If I get mad, I won't speak to the offender until I've already forgiven them. Below is the slide show I took down on my Overnight Jologs page, the moment I found out about their treachery (Most of the photos include some of them). So dahil OK na, I'll repost it here.

Dreaming of Them...

Well, well, well seroquel. I was a little freaked out kasi napanaginipan ko in some random evenings:

  1. etong lalaking 'to na sumasayaw ng hip hop - Medyo natakot ako.
  2. Si Chef Rob - Bumanat ng "I'll cook for the dietary department", pero extra lang siya. Hmpf!
  3. Nang wala na akong makuhang trabaho, naging private duty nurse ako ni:
Mimi's Mi Amor, J'adore
Bawal. Kamag-anak 'to ni Kwak-kwak. Haha!
This dude is everywhere. Ayan napapanaginipan ko tuloy.
P.S. Let's not drop names and use the code name DLS for this guy. OK?

Heh! Ang sakit sa ulo.

Lovin' It!

I love huge bags that can fit lots of stuff because I always bring extra stuff for emergencies. Shallow obsessing took over when saw these over the net:

bag! bag din!

Sana carry yan ng budget ko. Pero hindi so I just have to admire it. Haha! Yun lang =)

Genre: Romantic Comedy

In true Disney tradition to give you the "Living Happily Ever After" Stories, they gave us Enchanted. It stars Patrick Dempsey (Syemps, he should come first *lol*), Amy Adams, James Marsden, Susan Sarandon, and Peter Pettigrew (I forgot the actor's name).

The story starts in the animated Kingdom of Andalasia where Giselle (Adams) met her Prince Charming (Marsden). Afraid that she might lose her throne, the wicked stepmother (Sarandon) sent Giselle to a world with no happy endings: the streets of New York City. There she met the divorce attorney (Dempsey) who takes her in and orients her with the harsh realities of life. Her Prince Charming sets off to find his lady love with the help of Giselle's forest friend, a chipmunk named Pip.

Just guess how the story would end. Hah!

The movie shows how fantasy clashes with reality, in a funny sort of way. Since I never had a good laugh in the movies for a long time, the movie left me laughing because of how the Andalasians love to sing to convey their feelings...because we never do that. James Marsden's appearance also left me sniggering because he's trekking the streets of NYC in ginormous puffy sleeves and tights during hot weather.

For me, it's a must see...especially if you're a happily-ever-after freak.

Going, Going, Gone

Macy was asking: "How would you spend one more day, with someone you loved and lost?"

And the song "Ordinary Day" by Nick Lachey can help ice queens like me to think.

I still have these people I love around me. Maybe I was too young to have realized the pain that my grandparents' death caused everyone who loves them.

..and I'm not smoking crack as I say this: I want to spend one more day with our grandfather, whom we call Papa (Claudio Cervales) even if we have a language barrier. Because the only times that he and Mama get to see us, is when they go to Manila (which they haven't done in more than a decade) or when we're the ones visiting Roxas City. My siblings and I feel that Mama and Papa are like, going to choke in happiness when they see us.

Anyway, before Papa died, we got to see him 3 years before. And he told us that he likes seeing all of us there, peeling seafood for us, and sharing stories...syemps, with Mama as our translator. Hee-hee! Papa doesn't speak Tagalog and talks in Ilonggo fast so we can't catch up.

And if that makes him happy, I want to spend one more day with him in a picnic with Mommy, Daddy, and my siblings. We'll make him crack crab shells, tear the oyster from it's shell, peel the shrimp. Swear, he loves doing that (and stuffing us with the best seafood)! Plus we'll have a storytelling session for him, at si Daddy ang translator *LOL*.
...because we all didn't get to visit him within the year that he died. Sad.


This is more like the book, "For One More Day" by Mitch Albom. That's a kickass and heartwrenching story that'll make you appreciate your loved ones more.

Baby Out!

My older sister, Ate Richie had a whale of a power trip during her birthday last November 30. Ayos sa Feng Shui because she added 1 year on her candle for good luck.

Hmm, so I'm thinking about my own birthday shebang because I want to celebrate the day the Delivery Room peeps yelled "Baby out". *harhar*

Sayang nga lang because my relatives already made plans for that day (because it's also Mama Ovie and Papa Joe's 30th Wedding Anniv on that day) so I can't have my own way. Gusto ko sana trip to Jerusalem Hong Kong o Thailand...so I can satisfy my wanderlust. Kahit di na tuparin ang hiling kong "kahit anong mp3 player". But it's still a few days away so, whatever.

Kailangan ko na rin yata magpa-Feng Shui..for good luck, lalo na sa punyetang employment na yan.I'm tired of living la vida chaka. Hah!

Naku Naman!

Yes folks! I got my freaking license. After five months of waiting, I can finally get a job because the HR peeps couldn't drive me away because I have this license to show. I was so thrilled I have to go camwhoring with it.

Well, I shouldn't be thrilled. As soon as claimed that effing license, I went to the hospitals of my choice to get application forms and other whatnots. I was entertained and everything but they asked me to go back on January/March 2008 to submit the whole requirement shebang.

So much for the license. Heh!

Well, I'm going back to the drawing board and re-draw my career path. Lucky me, I have made out options. But I...must seriously re-think my life plans.

Pilosopong Tasyo

I was on my power trip mode while Kwak-kwak and I were chatting a few minutes ago. He asked me what should he give me for my birthday...even though he knows I'd say "wala".

Kwak-kwak: What would you like me to give you on your birthday?
KC: Nothing. Bakit ba ang kulit mo? Ang mahal ng postage and handling no!
Kwak-kwak: Ok lang yun. Dali, anong gusto mong i-regalo ko sa iyo...nakakainis naman 'to.
KC: Ah ganon, nakakainis pa ako. Sige na nga. Gusto ko ng sapatos atsaka yung full set ng Hogwarts castle na Lego. >:)
Kwak-kwak: Oh boy, the shoes are OK but the Lego's postage is expensive.
KC: See, I told you so...Haha! :))
Kwak-kwak: Hold on there first, I'm going to get something. (After a few minutes) I have a solution for that...open this. (He sent a picture file)
KC: (pagkabukas ng file) Anak ng...Bad trip ka. Ang pilosopo mo!!!
Kwak-kwak: Matalino at balahura man ang matsing, naiisahan din. :p

Here's the photo:

Yung Lego at yung sapatos, pinag-isa.

Usually, it's him on the receiving end of my funky form of sarcasm. Now it's the other way around. Syet. It's my first time to experience his funky sarcasm. Hee-hee!

Para sa mga Mediocre

Got this from a forwarded e-mail. I think it's worth sharing.

Ngayong araw na ito, sa ating pagtatapos, mayroon akong dalang Transcript of Record. Ang estudyanteng may-ari ng transcript na ito ay nag-aral sa De La Salle University. Sa unibersidad na ito, kapag ikaw ay isang undergraduate, may ID number na nagsisimula sa “94” at pataas, kung lumipas ang isang buong schoolyear at umabot ka sa 15 units na bagsak, masisipa ka sa paaralan.

Ang transcript na hawak ko ay mayroong 27 units ng bagsak. 12 sa mga ito ay tinamo ng estudyante sa iisang schoolyear lang. Ang isang subject ay kadalasang may bigat na 3 units. Kung iisiping mabuti, isang subject na bagsak na lang ay pwede na masipa ang estudyanteng may-ari ng transcript na ito.

Ang speech na ito ay hindi ko ginawa para i-acknowledge ang paghihirap n gating magulang sa pagpapaaral natin. Hindi ko din ito ginawa para maghayag ng political statement, o kumbinsihin kayo na huwag umalis sa bansa at tulungan itong maka-ahon. Ang speech na ito ay para sa mga normal na estudyante na kagaya ng may may-ari ng transcript na hawak ko, dahil madalas, wala talagang paki-alam ang unibersidad sa mga achievements nila. May mga awards na gaya ng “Summa Cum Laude”, “Best Thesis Award” at “Leadership Award.” Pero ni minsan, hindi pa ako nakakakita ng unibersidad na nagbigay ng “Hung on and managed to graduate despite nearly getting kicked-out during his academic stay” award.

Maaaring isang malaking kagaguhan ang konseptong ito para sa karamihan. Bakit mo pararangalan ang isang estudyanteng bulakbol, bobo, tamad o iresponsable? Hindi ba dapat isuka ito ng unibersidad? Ito yung mga tipo ng estudyanteng walang ia-asenso sa buhay, hindi ba?

Ayun. Natumbok niyo. Iyun na nga ang dahilan.

Madalas, pag ang isang estudyante ay may pangit na marka sa paaralan, lalong-lalo na sa kolehiyo, nakakapanghina ito ng loob. Nandiyan yung tatamarin ka mag-aral, nandyan yung iisipin mo “Ano pa kayang trabaho ang makukuha ko? Call center na naman o clerical? Ba’t kasi ang bobo ko. Kung matalino lang ako, sana, sa Proctor and Gamble ako, o kung saang sikat na kumpanya.”

Mas mahirap ang dinadaanan ng mga estudyanteng bumabagsak. Kahit na sabihin mong kasalanan nilang bumabagsak sila, hindi ninyo alam kung ano ang pakiramdam ng ganun. Madaling sabihin na “Kaya mo yan, mag-aral ka lang…” pero alam ba natin talaga ang sinasabi natin?

Kapag ang isang estudyante ay bumabagsak sa unibersidad, nandiyan yung tatawanan niya lang yan. O di kaya naman, ipagmamalaki niya pang “TAKE 5 NA KO!!!” o “Pare, magpi-PhD na ako sa Anmath3/Calculus/etc.” Pero hindi alam ng mga isang Summa Cum Laude kung ano ang nasa isip ng isang normal na estudyante sa tuwing matutulog ito at alam niyang pag-gising niya, kailangan niya na naming ulitin ang isang subject na nakuha niya na sa susunod na term. Kahit kalian, hindi naging problema sa “Star Student” na sabihing “Nay, bagsak ako.” at hindi kailanman sumagi sa isip nila na “Paano kaya kung sa walang-pangalang kumpanya lang ako makapagtrabaho?” Dahil sigurado sila sa kinabukasan nila.

Huwag na tayong maglokohan. Grades are everything. Kahit bali-baligtarin mo iyan, hindi magiging patas ang mga kumpanyang kumukuha ng fresh graduates para magtrabaho sa kanila. Minsan din naman, nadadaan sa palakasan, pero ganun pa din. Kung hindi ka academically good, wala kang patutunguhan. Kung hindi man yun, mas mahirap yung dadaanan mo para lang makaa-abot sa prestihiyosong posisyon.

Kaya ngayong graduation, ang speech na ito ay inaaalay ko para sa mga estudyanteng lumpagpak, muntik-muntikanan nang masipa o yung lahat ng paraang pwede, ginawa na para lang makatapos. Gagawin kong patas ang mundo para sa inyo kahit isang araw lang. Kahit ano pa ang sabihin ng ibang tao, kesyo kasalanan mo man na pangit ang marka mo o muntik ka nang makick-out, saludo ako sa hindi mo pagtigil sa pag-aaral. Saludo ako na may lakas ka ng loob na harapin pa rin ang mundo kahit alam mong hindi ito magiging patas sa iyo. Saludo ako na kahit pangit ang transcript mo, taas-noo ka pa rin ngayong graduation at proud na proud sa sarili mo.

Ano ngayon ang mangyayari sa mga graduates pagkatapos nitong graduation? Ayoko nang puntahan yung pwedeng mangyayari sa mga Cum Laude. Baduy. Alam mo naming me patutunguhan ang buhay nila e. Pero dun sa mga lumagpak, ano ang meron?

Maaring makakuha kayo ng mediocre na trabaho lang. Pwede ka rin swertehin, baka makapagtrabaho ka sa magandang kumpanya. Madami pang pwedeng mangyari. Huwag kayong mawalan ng pag-asa. Kung nung college, nagtiyaga kayo e…ba’t titigilan niyo yung pagti-tiyaga ngayon?

Pwede ring ganito: Mag-aral ka ulit. Ipakita mo sa kanila na kung sipagin ka lang, malayo ang mararating mo. Subukan mong patunayan sa kanila na kapag pinilit mo, kaya mo ring abutin yung naabot nila. Na hindi ka bobo, kundi tinamad ka lang.

Baka sabihin ninyo, drowing lang ako.

I’ve been on both sides. Naranasan ko na ring lumagpak, at muntikan na din akong masipa. Naranasan ko na na umulit ng 4 na beses sa iisang subject. Naranasan ko na na masumbatan ng magulang, kapatid at kung sino-sino pang propesor na walang pakialam sa pakiramdam ng estuyante. Naranasan ko nang hindi makatulog ng maraming gabi sa pagiisip kung paano ko
na naman sasabihin sa magulang ko na may bagsak na naman ako. Kaya alam ko ang pakiramdam ninyo. Akin ang transcript na ito.

Pagkagraduate ko ng college, ano ang ginawa ko? Eto. Nagtrabaho muna ng konti, tapos aral ulit. Kuha ng Masteral sa kurso ko. Hindi para sa trabaho o kung ano man. Kundi para patunayan sa sarili ko na noong mga panahong bumabagsak ako, tinatamad lang ako.

This is a rebellion. I raise my middle finger to every professor, over-achiever, naysayer and detractor that told me that I can’t make it. I raise my middle finger to every valedictory or graduation speech that only gratifies the university, those who were achievers in school or those who gratify the country when it’s supposed to be the graduate’s moment of glory. You are supposed to acknowledge EVERYONE. Even those who failed many times.

Kaya sa inyong mga graduates na medyo hindi maganda ang marka, para sa inyo ito. Kung kinaya ko ito, kaya niyo rin to. Imposibleng hindi.

I re-visited this blog called Bashing 101 to check if she has updates on the "Separated at Birth" entries. I LOL'ed at her latest entry because she completely bashed a video that she thinks is the "ultimate definition ng feeling cute".

Wanna see the video? Here it is:

And here's a link to that blog entry, entitled: EEEEEEEWWW!

Siya at Ako

Nanood kami ni Mommy at Toper ng Da Vinci Code sa HBO. Syemps, pinakita ito:

Ayan tuloy, naantig ang aking damdamin at naalala ko na naman siya...

Inasar ko siya dahil may nakita akong solo picture niya na kakaiba. Ang landi kasi, naka-pose ang lolo nyo sa may right side ng pyramid na iyan...parang ad sa magazine. Tawang-tawa ako sa hitsura niya nun kasi mas malandi pa sa akin. Hindi naman napipikon pero ginagantihan din ako ng pang-aasar.

~*~ Dahil sa asaran na iyan, dun na nagsimula ang lahat.

Minsan, ang sarap balik-balikan kung paano kami nagkakilala at naging close. Kaya lang parte rin ng kwentong ito ang ka-shungahan naming dalawa nang maharap kami sa maraming problema.

Nagpadalus-dalos siyang magdesisyon. Kagaguhan.
Sana hindi siya nagmadali...para naintihan niyang mabuti ang lahat.
Nagpaliwanag siya pero hindi ko siya pinakinggan. Kagagahan.
Sana nakinig ako...para kahit kaunti ay naintindihan ko siya.

Hindi kami nagkaintindihan kaya nalunod kami sa drama. Sa sobrang kadramahan, binura ko yung lahat ng pictures namin saka binali ang CD(RW). Siya naman, ayon sa kanyang kapatid, nilagay sa bodega ang painting ng dolphin na bigay ko sa kanya. Yeahboi! Iyan ang topak.

Pero sa bandang huli ay nag-usap kami, nagkaliwanagan at nagkapatawaran. Ayos! Natutunan namin na kailangan ng open communication at ng sandamukal na understanding.

...at pareho pala kaming EMO. ;p

Who, Me?

I was at the bank yesterday, depositing my fricking (few) money I saved and to send money to my grandmother who's in Capiz. So after going to BPI, I just walked on the way to PNB since it's just a short walk. I was wearing a loose shirt and a knee-length cargo shorts and my tsinelas na pambahay. It was a decent outfit anyway and very comfy when you're gonna go bank hopping. When suddenly:

"Miss, tomboy ka ba?", sabi ng isang tambay.

Taena, I want to roll on the floor, lauging my ass off. Who, me? Are you seriously talking to me? Well, I can't blame the guy because I don't walk like a girl, like, I don't do hip swaggering.

To begin with, I was not at all offended because it's not the first time that I have been mistaken for as a t-bird. I'm used to it. My relatives thought that I was one even when I was a child because I don't play girly games and I usually hang out with boys. That's the stigma, when you're not all "mahinhin" and hang out with boys, you're officially a tomboy.

Ngek! That's not my fault if I'm not what they want me to be. My girly side just doesn't show all the time, you know. That's why people get surprised when I get all dolled up, when I wear a skirt and when they see me fangirling...like in the photo where I'm ogling on Enchong Dee. Haha!

That's just me. Deal with it. Learn it. Live it. Love it.

Exciting Shizzle and a Close Encounter With an Extraterrestrial

Well for Paulinians and UPM peeps, Robinson's Place Manila is the extension of their school caf. And last year, the construction of the Midtown extension of my dearly beloved mall kick started and pushed through even though a huge crane toppled over. So when I visited Manila last time, uy, MIDTOWN is freaking open. Exciting! Because my prayers are answered...

Nyahaha! The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf will finally have a branch within my reach. Since this joint is not that popular, the crowd isn't that big unlike Starbucks. Call me socially retarded but whatevs, I love their chai lattes.

I should be happy because finally, I get to check out stuff from Gap (because they carry sizes for non-thinspirational peeps). But when I read this blog entry from Chuvaness, I think that the stuff there will also have "preposterous patong".


Another ek-ek from my Manila visit...

Who's that Pokemon?
Borrowed from Ate Richie's album

A victim of an amateur papparazi shot. He happens to be a dorm mate (coed ang dorm) and we secretly pick on him most of the time. Actually, he's the object of crazy stares of some of my college friends from as far as I can remember. If you get a close encounter, you're the (wo)man, but he'll go into hiding after that *snigger*.

Natawa lang ako with this encounter, because I was on the way to bathroom #2 of the dorm when suddenly he went out of the room to go to there too. We almost had a head on collision and there was embarassed silence.

...and then there was Regine Velasquez singing: "Marimar...AWWW!", which was coming from their room. He just said "Sige, ikaw muna, OK lang sa akin" and quickly scrambled to close the door.

Did he change channels after that? Nyahaha! I didn't expect him to be a Marimar enthusiast. Wala kasi sa hitsura. Hee-hee-hee!

Back to Basics

I'm back after a wordless diappearance. Well, dahil ginawa ko lamang ang napakalaking role ko sa bahay, bilang isang mabuting anak. Etchos. Seriously, I had my seminar at PNA about mechanical ventilators at nagproxy for my mom for the PTC of my younger sister, Charmaine. While I was away, Gasti tagged me.

Instructions: Each player starts with 7 random habits/facts about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

KC's 7 Scalp Benefits *charos*:
  1. Tanga ako pagdating sa mga luxury brands. Nalaman lang namin lately na Balenchaka Balenciaga pala yung bag ng Ate Richie ko na madalas kong hiramin at madalas ilapag kung saan-saan. FYI: yung bag na iyon ay bigay lang sa nanay namin...ni-nenok lang ng Ate ko.
  2. Napapagkamalan akong tibo dahil pangit akong maglakad...
  3. In relation sa #2, kaya maraming nagugulat kapag sinusumpong ako ng kalandian. There are times na con todo ayos pa ako ng buhok at naglalagay ako ng konting blush on at lip gloss/lip balm. Laging bati sa akin: "So, babae ka na ngayon..."
  4. Nung estudyante pa ako, madalas akong nagpe-perform ng mga impromptu na monologue sa mga doktor. Mga bastos na ka-grupo ko, ibinubuking kasi nila na marunong akong mag-impersonate ng mga characters sa Harry Potter. Kaya di pa tapos ang duty, ang pangalan ko na ay Harry, hindi KC. (P.S. Mga Koreans naman ang ginagaya ko ngayon).
  5. I'm weak without my eyeglasses. Sumasakit ang ulo ko kapag di ko ito suot during reading, watching TV and net surfing.
  6. Kapag sinusumpong ako ng topak, tahimik lang ako.
  7. Nanonood ako ng PBB Celebrity Edition 2 dahil kay Jon Mullaly a.k.a. Jon Avila.

Pesteng Papparazzi

I watched something over at E! News that a 12-year old boy has made lots of money taking papparazzi chots of celebrities. Since I'm a bum, I was thinking of doing the same thing to earn money for all of my wishlist eklavou. JOKE!!!

I tried my hand in doing a papparazzi shot when I had a close encounter with my certified college crush that i would like to hide under the code name: Barako Boy *lol*. My sister Charmaine and I were on our way to Karate Kid in Robinson's Place Manila when I saw him. The typical fangirl that I am, I scrambled for my phone but unfortunately, I COULDN'T FIND IT! Syet.

As soon as I laid my hands on that phone, I placed my phone on a convenient angle (para hindi halata, if ever he turns around). I was able to get an almost decent shot of his sexy back. Almost decent? Here's why (click to enlarge):

...kasi may mamang humarang. Wehe!

Poverty Is Everywhere

I haven't been able to blog for the past few days because I have the poverty of thought (meron ba nun?). My mind feels blank and instead of having a bad case of bloggorrhea, I just decided to let my blog rot.

I should be happy that the dollar-peso exchange rate is low because that means, the peso does well. I am not at all happy with that. That's because even if the peso does well, the cost of goods doesn't even go down. Lech! In an OFW's case, his/her salary has been deducted with all kinds of taxes then add it to the low exchange rate, and voila! The salary is deducted with about 10,000 pesos and above. Holy fark, my dad's an OFW...

...and what about the families of those who aren't OFW's? I feel for them.

And as a professional bum, I help around the house but I think that isn't enough. Seriously, I need a job. Buti na lang, I'm going to get my PRC license on the 26th. Haha! The last time I scattered my resumes, I wasn't entertained because I don't have that freaking annoying license yet.

Maiba tayo...

I'd like to thank McRey for the Arajaya Award. Even if I'm a jackass in making other people laugh through writing, he considered this blog funny. I bet that's because of the "Jollibeeyatch Chronicles". Harhar...

Sometimes the truth can be sooo funny. That's all. :)

Sunday, 4 November 2007


I admit that I watch MariMar in GMA 7. WAIT! Before you say how much of a hypocrite I am, lemme just say that I'm patiently waiting for some boo-boos. Kalurki ang video clip na ito. Laugh trip.

A friend gave me this link over at YouTube because he wants me to read the comments about the characters having diction boo-boos. LOL!!! I thought I was the only one who noticed. Tee-hee.

Total laugh trip comes in at 06:06. Fcukr, really funny... 

I know that some people will make welga and send me death threats. Nge. I'm posting some of my comments/recommendations:
  1. The child actress doesn't look like a 4-year old. Eh, improve on the casting, maybe?
  2. Try saying "May I HAVE your attention please".
  3. Umm, we can still retain the sosy air of the scene even if its spoken in Filipino, thank you very much.
  4. According to my high school speech teacher and English prof, words in a sentence must be blended. For example: "What is it?" must be spoken as "Wharizit?". Ngek. I hope you do get me...*lol*
  5. (Not shown in the video) I hated the nurse in one of the scenes in the later episodes. Ang CHAKA talaga. Was it right to say that "Huwag kang makialam dahil utos ito (referring to the increase of drug dose) ni Ma'am Angelica". Any nurse knows that he/she doesn't take any orders from anyone aside from the doctor. At mas chaka pa, nag-administer ng IV drug sa jugular vein ng walang heplock. Nasisira ang image ng Philippine health care professionals dahil sa maling pagganap. Have an accurate role portrayal please.
Ayun lang...

The Revenge of the Fat Kid

I had to think twice about coming to the cemetery tomorrow. That's because of my thin obsessed relatives will start yet another you'd-have-a-lot-of-guys-around-you-if-you're-skinny-as-a-reed or skinny-is-beautiful litanies. Phone yetah, I hate it when they do that because they'd just focus on my fat ass and not in what I am doing. I should tell them that they should be thankful that I don't do drugs and that I am not terminally ill. I love my plus size figure and my body is proportional to the size of my head, thank you very much.

The names "Taba" and "baboy" from my Elementary days are long gone. And I also left behind my bullying the bullies tendencies. But I decided that I'd show up anyway, because I don't intend them on raining on my parade. Put Tang in a glass, so what if I'm not thinspirational? I'm just trying to maintain my weight for health reasons and not for vanity's sake.

To make them shut up, I formulated a plan. If they start ranting on how pretty being skinny is, I'll give them a piece of paper containing a list of the stuff I want to have for my birthday/Christmas. They'd know I'm not joking because I never asked for gifts when I graduated or passed the board. It's a great deal though, because I'm turning a year older on the 21st and Christmas is on the 25th. Not bad, eh? Follow my list:

  1. Top Priority/Ultimate Shebang: A 30GB Micorsoft Zune or an 80GB Version 5.5 iPod (black) paired with surround sound speakers.

  2. Bangaw shades ni Kumareng Lulu or ng Mangga

  3. 3M™ Littmann® Electronic Stethoscope Model 3000.
  4. Gossip Girl Book 2-10, hardbound.
  5. The Witch of Portobello by Paolo Coelho and Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez, hardbound.
  6. Anesthesia Machine by Siemens (joke)
  7. Hip Hop Abs by Shaun T...to prevent obesity induced Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
  8. Trip to Divisoria with Php 5,000 pocket money...pang-negosyo. *lol*
Good luck sa kanila. Knowing them as kuripot, I'll see if they'd try to initiate that kind of talk after my gift proposal. Haha!!!

Ang sama ko. I want to post something scary to get into the "Halloween spirit" but I couldn't. Only crapola pops into my mind right now. Hence the no blog updating shebang...

Anyway, check this out. Do you believe in this stuff?

Happy Halloween everyone. Don't forget to visit your departed loved ones and pray for their souls, ok? :)

License Claiming

At last that fricking elusive license will now rest in my hands. It's my ticket to employment to the hospitals of my choice. Sa wakas...

Elitism in Choosing a Guy?!

I was over at PRC yesterday and while I was eating lunch at St. Thomas Square, I overheard two girls talking about Girl #1's suitor. The flow of their conversation revolved on Girl #2's encouragement that Girl #1 should go for the guy because he's an Atenean, has a car and a son of some rich dude, despite Girl #1's emphasis that the guy is nice and intelligent.

I expected that reply from Girl #2 because that's not new to me.

Eto na ang pinakamalupit sa lahat ng na-experience ko...When Jollibeeyatch found out that I was dating Doctor Kwak-Kwak, she was throwing me a lot of questions. She advised forced me to go for him NOW when she found out that Doctor Kwak-Kwak is an automobile owner, a son of a surgeon, financially able, a Filipino Chinese, ran for a cum laude slot in his premed course at UPD, and a jUPeeCM grad. His types were Jollibeeyatch's ideal guy.

I never introduced him to anyone in the clique (yet) because I was protecting him and myself (from the potential chismis). Ganito ba naman kasi ang balak ni Jollibeeyatch kapag pinakilala ko si Doc sa kanya na lagi niyang sinasabi sa akin, 3x a day:

  1. Sasama si Jollibeeyatch sa lakad namin tapos magpapalibre ng dinner at magpaparinig na mag-Starbucks after dinner. Swerte pa daw kung mapapagtripan ni Doc sa UCC. And she expects him to foot the bill even if he didn't want to have coffee

  2. Magpa-reto ng co-resident or ng jUPeeCM batchmate ni Doc

  3. Mag-feeling close at kunwari magiging ally...so that he'd have good things to say about her if he finally decides to introduce her to someone.

  4. Gusto niyang maka-experience sumakay sa Ford Escape. (Naisip ko tuloy: "Ford Escape lang ba ang bagong sasakyan sa buong mundo?")

  5. Magkakaroon na daw siya ng karapatan na mag-sked ng date naming dalawa. Those dates include a random day kung saan chaperone ko "daw" siya. (Third wheel?!)
Patay tayo diyan, nagbalak na! At seryoso siya dyan. Bahala siya, I won't have her back when he starts lecturing medical terms in English, with matching intonation and word blending pa...para total nosebleed. Nyahaha!

I have guy friends and I will feel sad if the girl they like, treats them as a cash cow. It's disturbing. Really. I didn't see Doc as a money dispensing machine and I hate to know that other people around me sees him as otherwise.

So guys, take heed. Sometimes, you have to be careful of the clique.

Ronald McDonald, pray for Jollibeeyatch.

Trouble with Hackers

Something's freaking wrong. I haven't opened my fucking Friendster account for like 2 days or so and I checked it out just now because of some new messages from friends and a cousin. I think SOMEONE or SOMETHING hacked into my account and read my messages because I didn't see the new message alert in the homepage. Worse, he/she/it might have sent out perverted comments and messages or just some random fuckery to some of my friends.
So I've posted a bulletin saying that if there's a new comment or message from me from two days ago, blast it. THAT'S NOT ME. It may be some simpering loser or a retarded perv who had nothing better to do. I also changed my password.
Plus, I'm always over here...not in there. O let's all go to some unpopular networking site na lang. *lol*
 Multuhin sana sila ng mumu na sumasabay sa prayers namin nung in-house review. Hmpf!

The OC

Anywaaaaaay. Moving on...

No, no. I'm not referring to the now defunct Josh Schwartz series. I'm referring to the Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Majority of my dormmates were laughing their messy asses off whenever they see me arranging my stuff according to height or according to category. They call me "ok-ok" because they think I'm a hardcore obsessive compulsive. Yeah, right. I'm not a hardcore OC because there are some instances that I can be messy..if I have no time to clean up.

Then my friend, Sasa and I was chatting before and she jokingly asked about my room at home, if it is as neat like my dorm room. Sabi ko makalat pero di siya naniwala. Kunsabagay, partly true pero partly barbero naman na makalat ang kwarto ko sa bahay. Just look:

Pagsama-samahin ang pare-pareho...Harry Potter (above) and Sweet Valley(below).
Note the tall-small-tall arrangement...may singit-singit pang papel.

Dorm: Where the teasing began...

Notebooks, books, handouts arranged according to height
Deadmahin nyo na lang yung mga papel na nakasingit above the books.

Pagkatapos lumapang ng dinner + bote ng Ciprobay= makalat.
Pantay nga ang mga bote sa kikay tray.
PS: Ang cute ng katabi ni Patrick Starr. Haha!

Dahil may kalat pa rin sa akin, I'm not a hardcore OC. Mediocre OC will be more like it. Whatchathink?!

What In The World?!

As some of you know, I have been busy scattering pieces of me all around the metro (Translate: Nagpapaulan ng resume). I've also been doing online applications to some hospitals. Last night, I just read an email from Hospital X turning down my application because my "grades are all exceptional but my board rating didn't make the cut". WTF?! I didn't know that they have a board rating cut-off because they didn't indicate it on the list of requirements.

I had crazy thoughts pouring. "Baka nag-clash yung grades ko sa TOR at yung board rating ko", "Bobo ba ako?", and other whatever things. It did damage to my self esteem. There was even something that came up and made me blame myself for getting a 74 on Test 4 since it's the only incriminating mark that I got that greatly affected my rating (sabi ng ale sa PRC).

What the heck. I'm proud of my rating even if isn't even close to what everyone thinks as "satisfactory". I won't let this rejection stop me. There are lots of opportunities out there for me, other than this one. I just felt sad about this "grade stigma" because it seems as if they limited everyone's abilities with the figures that they saw on the board rating slip. Yeah, whatever. All I know is that I'm a whole lot different than the whatever mold that they had placed me into. Ay pampalubag-loob? Nyahaha.

When I was in college, my motto is: "Grades aren't the measure of what I'm really learning". I never limited myself and my abilities just because I have a grade that reeks of mediocrity. I believe that whatever the sky-high graders can do, I can do too. Well, except memorizing. Tee-hee.

That got me into thinking: who are the super intelligent people anyway? Ngek. Whatever. Pauso lang.

Anyhoo, I'm OK now. It's part of the role I play in the theatrical play that we all belong into. That play is what we know as: LIFE.

Halloween Treat

Macy gave this one to me so I decided to give this Halloween treat

to the following people: Icka, McRey, Gorjess, Ardee, and Ate Jackie.
Have a nice day everyone. =)

Future Footwear Fad

So now, we have Havaianas and Crocs and its knockoffs currently scattered in the market. I have never been a fan of those footwear because those are freakin' expensive. But now, I predict that the next [insert sarcastic tone here] big thing in footwear will be Dopie from the UK.

Not My Feet...
(Courtesy of dopiewear.com)

I find it really weird because I thought that it was just the swelas. Yun pala, that's it: the swelas is the slipper itself. It comes with a detachable strap that you can use if you keep on leaving your slipper behind. I think it'll become a hit since the fugly Crocs clogs took center stage. And it might be priced at above 1,000 bucks or more for a pair...fearless forecast lang.

I was officially naloka with the engineering and the design. Check out their website for more details and photos.

~ enough of the creepy stalker people na... =)

I'm Going Good?! *shriek*

I've been mentioning something about an angry, delusional ex from hell. And she's tagged as "The Sak" because of how she manipulated Mark into buying her a Php 5,000 purse from The Sak in Rustan's. I've detonated her angry bomb using Felipe's headshot slogan (Thank you Felipe, ahlavett!). But I modified it a little because I don't do religion-related chuva so that religious manangs won't revolt against me *lol*. I've never responded to her pathetic defaming messages until she wished me dead.

The Sak: So pumasa ka pala ng Board exams...Magkano ang binayad mo sa BON? At kung nahilo ka man nung nagmisa kayo, sana namatay ka na lang.
KC: (keeping the woman of substance composure) Do you know Elmo from Sesame Street?
The Sak: Of course stupid. Sino ba ang hindi kilala si Elmo?
KC: So for sure you know Elmo's tagline, "Elmo loves you". I'm gonna say that to you. Elmo loves you...but I still think you are a c*nt.
The Sak: Hindi muna nanggugulo...

Ngek! If I was in my ultra-imbyerna mode, Word War I might have begun and might not end.

On his birthday, Engz wished for 10 yards of patience for me. I think it worked because I didn't go totally ballistic over Balenchaka (Ang babaeng may pasosyal effect pa pero chaka naman), when I discovered that she's been on a lying spree for the nth time. Normally, I'd interrogate her in front of people until I catch her off guard and expose the lie. But now, I'm just laughing it off..and at her. Haha! Maybe I learned the golden lesson that I should be cautious with her.

Or maybe I'm really going *slightly* good now. Well, except for the rationale behind codename: Balenchaka. Harhar. At least I'm not totally bad anymore.

I Missed These Guys

Yesterday, I was out with some of my high school friends and classmates because Dannilyne celebrated her 21st birthday. Gawd, I haven't seen some of them like, since first year college. It's amazing to see what become of us after high school. Most of them are still students because they had to shift courses or had to stop because of unstable finances and some of us have now finished college and started working. Those who didn't come had work, final exams (Joan, Anna), or busy enjoying the sem break (Verna).

It's fun to reminisce how all of us had dreams of what we'd become in the future. The air is filled with thick slabs of these hopes and dreams, that you can cut with a knife. Well that's how it is in high school, right? And thinking of it, we're now living it in some way or another. Padi is now a licensed medtech, Limp is now an office boy in a corporate setting, Jewel is a call center agent, and yours truly, a licensed nurse (pero wala pang trabaho *lol*). The rest, Mico, Jon, Dannilyne and Sheena are still students.

They say that high school is the happiest phase of one's life. I had fun during high school but I don't wish to go back. I have my friends and classmates from high school moving forward with me NOW. I'd treasure the fun times but I treasure my friends more. Whee, ang drama! Seeing them again after how many days/months/years just makes me go senti.

Crazy Power Tripping

I was checking my CD's at home when I chanced upon this video presentation that my groupmates and I made for our case presentation at school. We presented a different video during our case pres at PGH-OR. This is a better version because we're so afraid that the Jolivar might bite our heads off. We're much more scared of the Jolivar than the chief nurse of the OR complex. Haha!

The nursing history comes in as a serious laugh trip. My friends, Joy (pseudo-Dulcolax Girl) and Toyang (Mr. Pringles knockoff) make a cute couple *lol*. Some parts may be a bit too graphic for your taste because it involves blood and gore, but not the violent types.

Err, I noticed that it's my third time to rant about how I miss the operating room. You might think that I'm such a freak. Haha! Sorry about that.

Peace out! =)

How I Communicate...

I have been thinking about deleting my Friendster account for quite some time now. That's because I get over 300+ views in a month and it scares me shitless. Think: creepy stalker people and angry ex from hell and her crew. But I can't bring myself to do it because most of my friends (and some frienemies *lol*) are on it so that's where I can get some news about what's going on with them.

And to tell you the truth, I'm not much of a text fanatic because I rely on the World Wide Web because it gives complete info and it comes in free for me...unlike prepaid credits. And another reason why I chose to stick to my eons-old Smart cell number because I'm not fond of crowing using SMS. So that's no reason for me to avail of the unlimited texting service and to buy credits frequently. I just send out text messages if it's really, really important. I rarely respond to quotes now, depending on the "I Miss You" factor.

I don't open my Friendster account anymore, unless if there are some new messages or comments or just a need to update (which doesn't come in soon). I just open my YM, Multiply, and Blogger accounts along with my e-mail accounts. Those are the hotspots which you can find me.

And that's how I communicate, the social retard way. *lol*

A Sneak Peek

I was tagged by my sister, Richie and here goes:

So here's my desktop. I'm not actually using my own user profile right now. Haha! But anyway, there are loads of icons in there because we just create shortcuts for the most frequently used programs. It's for the purpose of functionality. And some of the icons are the games I usually play when I get bored. I'm addicted to the Magic Vines game now and I have two more levels to play and I'm done with the entire game. Yay! I chose this default wallpaper because I love dogs and it reminds me of our former dog, Ginger...even if Ginger happens to be a small brown dog, unlike that one. Go figure! =)

I don't have anyone in particular to tag. Just tag yourselves if you're feeling like doing it.

My Desktop Free View Instruction:

A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun. You can do a screen capture by:[1] Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key).

Gossip Girl TV Series


Finally! One of my favorite books have been turned into a TV series by the CW network. The series is produced by Josh Schwartz of The O.C. and the production team is composed of the people behind the costumes, music, and the story line of Sex and the City, The O.C., and Veronica Mars.

I watched the first few episodes already and I noticed that they haven't followed the concept of the book. They just adapted the characters and had taken a completely different story line. Ok, I know that Gossip Girl is really way behind my age category, it just captures you with it's catchy story line and great soundtrack.

Although I think the story line of the book is better, the plot gets exciting each episode as we watch New York's Upper East Side it-girl, Serena van der Woodsen battle it out with her former best friend Blair Waldorf. And we'll get hooked on waiting if Dan Humphrey would be chosen by Serena over Nate Archibald, or if the horniest boy in their clique, Chuck Bass would finally get in between Serena's pants. And oh boy, they're just in high school.

But I was disappointed because Serena (Blake Lively) doesn't look like what I was expecting her to look like. Her acting is OK but lacks the bee-yatch factor that Blair (Leighton Meester) has. Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) sometimes look untidy and weird but has this certain "angas" look that gives him an edge. Nate (Chace Crawford) and Dan (Penn Badgely) are hot *lol*. As for Gossip Girl, Kirsten Bell's voice is perfect for the part.

I can't wait for the next episodes. =)
