Last Monday, I bought a T3 magazine (a monthly gadget magazine). I always look forward to Butch Dalisay's article. This month he wrote about something very special -- ENONYMITY.

According to him, it's the hybrid of the words
trigued of course! Why did he come up with that word? Answer -- taking advantage of freedom of expression over the net. He said that "On the internet, everyone is anonymous. It's no wonder then that it's filled with enmity -- hate blogs, rants, flamers, and more angry ten-page emails than your spam filter can handle".

Now I wonder, do I also fill my blog with all the hate in my world?? Well, maybe not really, but i do admit that sometimes I do blogging to vent out my angst. But hey! Isn't blog referred to as your online diary or journal? So, actually you can really write about anything.. even curse someone! LOL!

Thursday, I visited
Yahoo OMG to check out the article about Jennifer-Angelina gossip. I browsed Angelina's pics, as always, she is like a goddess for me, but i noticed the increasing number of hate comments, not about her clothes, makeup, hair, hair, or shoes, but because of her relationship with Brad Pitt. By the way, who are these people who posted those comments? They are I-don't-know and I-don't-care! They are the faceless, judgmental idiots who love to criticize others online.

While I was reading the comments, I was chatting with Amanda in the TKA Villa that time. She told me that it's very hard to comment about the
Angelina-Brad-Jennifer intrigue because she doesn't know the whole story and she doesn't want to be judgmental.

Piece by piece, I try to come up with a good reason why some people online are acting like certified critics and like for-your-info-im-genius. I kinda wanna think that these people have split personas.. in real world -- timid geeks, in virtual world -- uber hyped players. Maybe because since you can be anonymous on the net, they can't put you to jail. The worst punishment you can get is getting banned on a website.

Anyway, you can always create a new account if you want... HAHAHA
*insert evil laugh here*

My First Banner for My HOME ^___^

Last friday... TKA Villa topic.. GBA (Golden Bell Awards). Amanda was translating to us the whole convos happening. Everyone there was waiting for the announcement of the Best Actress for Drama. Lin Yi Chen was nominated. So we are all waiting for the results. WaaaaaaaH! Yi Chen won the award! *applause applause*

Someone suggested making a banner for Yi Chen "moment", i can't remember who brought up the idea. Suddenly I thought of trying to make one since im trying to learn more of Photoshop CS.

So I gathered some photos from the awards.. especially the controversial actions of Joe Cheng.. lol acting like a proud bf/husband! *photo credits to Lyssa1209 of the TKA Villa*

Saturday night, after tucking in my little guy to bed, I started on my trial project. I'm not so sure of the correct size to use so i followed the size suggested on the instructions on some tutorial website that i found. Of course i made many mistakes.. uh wrong color combos, typo errors, too much smudging, accidentally deleting layers.. hahaha.

after 2 hours of choosing and thinking and actually doing the whole work... tan-ta-na-nan.... here's my finished work :) *confetti falling*

Saturday, November 1, 2008


Ok so now i feel half prepared in my Villa comeback.. i wasn't able to attend the 2nd TKA GIRLS MEET-UP, i can't watch the LoB BTS vds and extras due to time constraints and chaotic work schedule, i can open the TKA Villa blogsite but everytime i scroll down I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING!!

Now i feel worse than ever. I'm bearing this feeling of being SO-SO INTO this coming home.

It's not that i don't wanna be home. It's more of i wanna belong again..

Promise On A Sunday

October 26th, typical Sunday except my dad asked me to try driving halfway our street. After a few dead-engine-and-i-laugh, i think i did somewhat fair today. My dad said that i already know how to use the steering wheel coz he even asked me to turn and go back to the starting point, which is our house. I just really got some problem with the clutch coz i always forget to step on it to change gears.

Ok change topic.. i had my hair rebonded and my nails had their much needed mani-pedi! (by the way, my toenails have some nail art, a small flower on each toenail! LOL flower power!).

Some thought is bugging me now.. if someone promises to do something then something happened to cause delay in fulfilling a promise, like moving the said promise an hour or two later, should that be enough reason already to break the promise?

It happened to me today and i feel devastated. It felt like im NOBODY. What's the difference of keeping the promise now and doing it 10-12 hours later? I really feel invisible now. i value time so much. I cherish togetherness more than any earthly thing.

Why are these two things more difficult to receive than receiving material things? I just wonder now..

A Phone Call

It's 4:40am already, 25th of October, sitting here inside the jeepney at the terminal.. all beaten up and still have this freaking migraine. It was one hella working week. Seems like so much happened since Monday and i still can't absorb everything!

Yesterday, i received a text message from my big guy saying that he would be confined in the hospital. Honestly, i didn't know how i should react, but one thing's for sure.. i wasn't worried that time.. and i started pondering why.. I don't want him in there. Why? I don't know. Then i thought maybe i was trying to be defensive on the thought that i had to go there to see him with his parents. I told myself "nightmare!". I ended up sending him messages that i know were too harsh, discouraging him about the confinement, even attacking the quality of the hospital he's in.

"I will never go there", that was my decision. That was so mean of me, but i never doubted if that was wrong. I went back to pondering why i wasn't worried at all. Answer? I still don't know..

I started to doubt again how i felt for him.. who is he in my life.. he's my big guy and i cherish him every single second of my life. So i decided to call him. My right ear started hurting because of the endless ringing sound. I was already pissed off. He texted, he just woke up. I called again.

I heard him talking. He's voice was too soft that i couldn't even hear him (or was it due to my hurting ear). Suddenly, i felt pain radiating through my soul and i was indeed surprised with what i had just felt. I thought, "what if i won't hear his voice again?". I realized at that point that if i hadn't decided to reach him, i would have let another chance (to show him how i feel) fade away.

Ok i called.. now i wanna be with him..

My OLD PDA is My SUPAH HERO.. for now!!

Oh well.. so i am using an old PDA (Palm Pilot) now to do some blog entries that later on i'm gonna transfer to the PC by.. tan-ta-na-nan.. TYPING! LOL! A more amped way of using scratch paper for drafting haha! Basically i'm just keying in any random thoughts that pops in my mind. I'm so worked up into blogging these days maybe because i haven't really blogged for a long time. So that's why i'm trying to make use of this black and white palm that i found just yesterday inside my desk's drawer.

Now what! I want a new PDA just for my blogging addiction. Well any PDA would do just fine.. as long as its in FULL COLOR already.. hahaha! So i texted my big bro in Singapore to go find and get me one! With WI-FI??? uh.. MUCH BETTER!!!

So let's see if i'll get a new PDA or i'll just grow out of this oh-ma-gah-another-earthly-desire.. LOL!!!

How about i just get a PDA phone?? Well, i'm not a fan of all-in-one gadgets. I still believe in one-specialty-is-still-damn-better.. hahaha!!

Trying Out PHOTOSHOP CS!!!

It's already 2:48am, i just finished editing Levinia's pic using Photoshop CS. Doing that wasn't my original plan to relieve my-so-called-stress because of ever slow temporary pc run by Windows Vista. I had a pending video-editing job to do but i hadn't foreseen the upcoming obstacle.. 3gp isn't recognized by Windows Movie Maker!!! Sounds too technical? Well, 3gp is the common format used in videos recorded using a mobiile phone.

Anyway, i wanna show you guys my stress-buster-masterpiece.. hahaha!!!

Wake Up Call ^___^

My calvary is halfway over.. my office pc finally gave up on me. after several weeks of suffering from suddenly-my-pc-turns-off and being outdated in my cyber life, i now can go back to checking my email, FS, MS, FB, TKA Villa mingling, and blogging.

On the other hand , i got more time to gossip with my co-teachers and have some time to relax on my office chair. I even had more time at home coz i was able to go home early unlike before.
Myabe now i've already learned how to balance both words.. thanks to my online-sisters-turned-real-friends, my big and little men, and office b!@tches.

I welcome myself back to PINK BLOOD..

Friday, August 1, 2008


Its been two weeks since i last cared for my blog. Haha i'm such a loser for that. Well, i was kinda busy lurking around a new-found social network called US Cyworld. i first heard of this site from my Korean students coz there's a so-called Cyworld Korea, quite popular to my teen students.

Ok. I admit i started out in that site for the wrong reason. I even used my friend-given-korean-name to match his username in the site. I go to the thread where he is posting. I didn't know that there are many Pinoy members in cyworld. They even have a regular thread in there. i can't resist the temptation to post (aka chat in cyworld). The diversity of topics there are discussing are quite amusing, from corny jokes to pinoy fyi to gossips spreading around the site. People there don't have a common point for bonding except that they are pinoys, enough to make them feel at home.

First week, I started threading, he was not there, my intention was to join the pinoy crowd. I click the POST button, the thread refreshed, He was there, we posted at the same time. I thought it was coincidence, but i know that he should be there. I continued posting replies to others inroducing myself and making friends. He ignored me. I felt non-existent.

Second week, He wrote on my guest book several times. I replied (stupid me!). I sent cyworld messages to him the next day, I ended up accussed of assumptions. He got pissed off. i continued making friends with others. The following day, cyworld server was down. Me and my new-cy-friends ended up in YM conference. It was fun to know them better. Chi became my new-bru-girl. Pinoy thread election result was out, everything was just for fun. End of that week, realization for me. It's over and done.

After those two weeks that i spent in cyworld, I thought I was ready to leave that space. But I came back, for the right reason now. I came back to enjoy the socialization scheme that cyworld offers. Though sometimes I intentionally try to piss him off whenever his there, but its just entertainment for me now and for others who laugh at my punch lines.

I'm not there as Annishi anymore, but as JiHye, a new face in cyworld. I enjoy prepping up my profile page, building up my minirooom, playing miniquiz, photoediting, and making fansigns. Like in real world, cyberworld is huge, so i have to go out and explore. It's like I'm visiting the other side of myself now. A personality far from Annishi's sweet image..

But it's over now.. JiHye is non-existent... again...

Ally McBeal LSS Mode

Thanks to Levi for sharing Baby, Don't You Break My Heart Slow (track 13) mp3. So after being in LSS mode for Leona Lewis' songs.. now im into Vonda Shepard songs from Ally McBeal. The second song I Know Him By Heart (track 14), i just found it while digging in the playlist of other imeem-ers who love Ally McBeal. Ok, so here's the lyric scroller for track 14! ^^

Be Right Back.. a.k.a "brb"

When i started chatting, i think i was in my sophomore year in college that time, i was so new to chatting jargons like "weebee, asl, ctc.. and brb". But i think "brb" is the most used chat jargon in the TKA Villa since i started chatting there. Well, maybe because some chatters are chatting while waiting for the TKA clips to finish buffering, then excuse themselves by using "brb" and make their exit in the chatbox. Or, maybe just busy with something else for a moment.

I use "brb" very often coz i chat during work hours.. yes WORK HOURS! hahaha! Multitasking as what some regulars told me. But sometimes i get confused with "brb". Like, how long should u be gone if u typed "brb"? And, how long should u wait if someone typed "brb"?

According to www.urbandictionary.com, "brb" means that someone is going to return at some random point that you're unable to predict. Hmm.. so it means it could be as long as an hour, or even a day, a week, a month, a year, a decade, a century.. hahaha sorry for the exaggeration!

How about the definition that i've come up.. "brb" is a form of escape for the following scenarios: 1. You can't relate to the topic being discussed in chatroom; 2. You don't want to answer a certain question asked, or; 3. You are simply avoiding the person.

I've come up with those situations coz i have tried using "brb" at those times and it actually worked. And, maybe i have experienced or at least felt that some are using "brb" for those events.

So you said "brb"... hmm.. i told myself "i think i shouldn't wait anymore"...

Two Songs for LSS Mode..

I got my new mp3 player last June 21. My brother already loaded some songs in the player, so all i have to do is charge it and listen to the songs afterwards. I wonder "where the hell my brother got these songs!" i thought to myself. Then i discovered these two songs from Leona Lewis.. I ACTUALLY LOVE THEM! You can also listen to the music in my playlist, tracks 10 and 11 ^_^

I Don't Know Why...

I wanna share this literary work i received from a classmate way back in college.. here it goes..

I sat here in English class, I stared at the girl next to me. She was my so-called "BESTFRIEND". I stared at her LONG, SILKY HAIR, and I wished she was mine. But she DIDN'T NOTICE ME LIKE THAT, and I KNEW IT. After class, she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before. I handed them to her. She said "Thanks" ans gave me a kiss on the cheek, I want to tell her, I WANT HER TO KNOW THAT I DON'T WANT TO BE JUST FRIENDS, I LOVE HER BUT I'M JUST TOO SHY, AND I DON'T KNOW WHY...

11th grade, the phone rang. On the other end, it was her. She was in tears mumbling on and on about how her love broke her heart. She asked me to come over because she didn't want to be alone, so I did. As I sat next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes, wishing she was mine. After two hours, one Drew Barymore movie, and three bags of chips, che decided to go to sleep. She looked at me, said "Thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I WANT HER TO KNOW THAT I DON'T WANT TO BE JUST FRIENDS, I LOVE HER BUT I'M JUST TOO SHY, AND I DON'T KNOW WHY...

Senior year, the day before prom, she walked to my locker, "My date is sick." she said. "He's not gonna go, well, I didn't have a date," and in the 7th grade, we made a PROMISE that if neither of us had dates, we would go together just as "BESTFRIENDS". So we did go to the Prom night. After everything was over, I was standing at her front door step. I stared at her as she smiled at me and stared at me with her crystal eyes. I WANT HER TO BE MINE, BUT SHE DOESN'T THINK OF ME LIKE THAT, AND I KNEW IT. Then she said, "I had a great time, THANKS!" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I WANT HER TO KNOW THAT I DON'T WANT TO BE JUST FRIENDS, I LOVE HER BUT I'M JUST TOO SHY, AND I DON'T KNOW WHY...

A day passed, then a week, then months, and a year. Before I could blink, it was graduation day. I watched her PERFECT BODY floated like an ANGEL on the stage to get her diploma. I WANT HER TO BE MINE, BUT SHE DIDN'T NOTICE ME LIKE THAT, AND I KNEW IT. Before everyone went home, she came to me in her smock and hat, and cried as I hugged her. Then she lifted her head from my shoulder and said, "YOU'RE MY BESTFRIEND, THANKS!" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I WANT HER TO KNOW THAT I DON'T WANT TO BE JUST FRIENDS, I LOVE HER BUT I'M JUST TOO SHY, AND I DON'T KNOW WHY...

Now I sit in the pews of the church. That girl is getting married now. I watched her say "I do" and drive off to her new life, married to another man. I wanted her TO BE MINE, BUT SHE DIDN'T SEE ME LIKE THAT AND I KNEW IT. But before she drove away, she came to me and said "YOU CAME!" she said "THANKS!" and kissed me on the cheek. I want to tell her, I WANT HER TO KNOW THAT I DON'T WANT TO BE JUST FRIENDS, I LOVE HER BUT I'M JUST TOO SHY, AND I DON'T KNOW WHY...

Years passed, I looked down at her coffin, coffin of a girl who used to be my "BESTFRIEND". At the service, they read a diary entry she had written in her high school years. This is what it read:


"I WISH I DID, TOO..." I thought to myself, and I cried.

Do yourself a favor, tell him/her that you love him/her. Even if you don't know how they'll react, just tell them how you "REALLY" feel about them. They won't be there forever. Time will come and they'll appreciate the love you've given them.

This is a lesson that i have to learn yet.. many times i failed to show how much i appreciate the people around me. But i think i'm slowly learning.. to be more expressive. Anyways i have nothing to lose if i show or say how i really feel.. it gives me peace and contentment in return.

TKA Girls Meet Up ^^

After many weeks of "busy-ness" coz of chatting, i finally had the inspiration to blog up again.. haha!

May 31st, the first time that im going to meet Mei-unni, Lyssa, and Velvet. 11:30am i woke up using alarm clock coz im so scared that i myt woke up late. i had a quick shower and had a light brunch. I turned my closet upside down to find something comfy and nice to wear. I was always keeping in mind to wear something simple, not really to dress up coz we are going to Sta. Cruz to hunt DVDs.

1:30pm i arrived at SM North EDSA to meet Velvet. Hmm.. she's late! haha but it's ok coz she had a very good reason like forgetting her money at home. lolz! we went to LRT Monumento Station to meet Lyssa. We rode a taxi going there coz it's so hot outside! grrr! we met Lyssa at around 2:30pm. So we got on the train and chatted a little coz we have to get off at Tayuman Station to meet Mei-unni (fresh from the spa! lolz!).

So our first stop, Lights and Sounds Museum.. bits and pieces of history that i've just learned.. haha still many things for me to learn about history! Of course we didn't forget to take pictures! haha but most of the pictures are not so good coz we look haggard coz of the hot temperature outside! sheezzz! we dropped by Luneta... hayyy havent been there for quite some time! hahaha we had fun walking around and taking scenic pictures and fooling around like kids!

Next stop, DVD shops at Sta.Cruz.. no piccus for this place coz.. ehem.. its kinda not very safe there. hehe! on our way to the DVD shops, Mei-unni brought us to a stall where you can buy sugar cane juice. it was my first time to try it out. it was so delicious and of course sweet! it was such a fun experience, overwhelming to see lotsa DVDs of Asian Dramas that i've watched and havent watch yet. I bought TKA and Nodame Cantabile DVD.

Its already getting dark when we arrived at Robinsons' Place Ermita to have dinner. We already have chosen to dine at Secret Recipe beforehand. the dinner was sumptuous and filling! hehe we need to eat a lot to recover from the walking marathon that we had. so while we were waiting for our food to be served, we callled several TKAers like Granelle and Jyo, we also tried reaching Cherr and Gangan but their phones couldn't be reached. Reiz(my dawty) called me also. after finishing dinner... a moment of silence.. hahahha something i found out that's common for all of us.. quiet when full!!!

After eating, we strolled for some time and checked out some boutiques. we went out of the mall around 9:00pm already and had some piccus again beside the fountain. we even asked a group of teens to take a pic for us! lolz!

So its going home time! Velvet had to ride a FX, then me, Mei-unni, and Lyssa took the train again..

It was one experience that i'll never forget. One thing is because it was my first time to meet people that i've come to know only in chat. Second is that its my first time again to get into social life..

Virtual Burden

Oftentimes I think that chatting is the most fun thing to do in the web. You get lots of friends. You share your thoughts simutaneously with many people. You meet people from different countries and cultures, and yet realize that you have many things in common. Quite amazing, isn't it?

Many relationships are formed through chatting... friendship, sisterhood/brotherhood, clan, romantic relationship.. to name a few. It all boils down to this... addicted to communicate. :)

But like any other types of communication, misunderstandings are just around the four corners or your monitor. Since you cannot see the person, the mystery is there. And because of that mystery, getting closer or testing limits are quite hard.

Sometimes statements made could be offensive for another and you have no control over to how you could take back what you have already typed. All you can do is type "i'm sorry". It's the same when you said something to someone, you can't take it back. But the difference is when you say it, the tone gives away the intention, but when you type it, its all up to the receiver to decode it.

How about the feeling? In every medium of communication, the feelings attached are the same. If you know you hurt someone, you feel burdened of course. But if you talk to that person, settling things become easier. But with chatting, it's a different story. Seeing letters on your screen saying "i'm sorry" is quite boring. So what to do? I guess nothing, just wait for the next right time to come.

So how should we type then? No guidelines of course. It's up to you to risk the barriers of communcation that this medium offers. Emoticons are sometimes useful, but oftentimes faceless for it could never replace your actual expression.

But hey! that exact difficulties that we encounter with communication through chatting makes it more interesting and colorful. Humans are born to naturally adapt to communicate pretty well in ways that we might not imagine now but could be possible later.

A Farewell to the "Love Nest"

I could still remember when i first saw It Started With A Kiss (ISWAK). There was a handsome NERD and a STUPID, typical girl. I thought like "here we go again, same old neverending scenario". I didn't had planned to watch the DRAMA, nor had interest in knowing the story. But when I saw the LOVE LETTER, it made me CURIOUS, like I wanna know what's INSIDE.

I watched it every weekend, MAYBE many people don't even know the drama because of the DEAD timeslot! But I didn't care, anyway i'm NOT addicted to watching the first few EPISODES that time. I did'nt even know the screen name of the ACTORS AND ACTRESSES. I just find it FUNNY to watch that time.

But I got ADDICTED to it! It became a HABIT that I couldn't BREAK. Week after week I waited for a 30min. SATISFACTION. It felt like I'm always in "KILIG" state... but not for long 'coz all things come to an end..

I thought that was the end.. but I was ABSOLUTELY wrong! Here came THEY KISS AGAIN! *wink* The sequel that I had waited for so LONG. It was a TOTAL knockout! but besides the fact that I TRULY fell in love with the SEQUEL, I was also able to RELATE some of the feelings that I, myself couldn't explain. I think that is the TRUE reason why I became so ATTACHED to the sequel.

The characters in the story GREW with me, they were now presenting a more MATURE role in each other's lives. Maybe sometimes for Xiang Qin, she still acts immaturely at times, but definitely has grown to have a mature HEART to accept all TRIALS.

Sometimes i think about what Zhi Shu once said "It's good to have a simple mind". Then try to figure out what he was trying to say. But until now, I couldn't find the ANSWER.

Often times I envy Xiang Qin. She is such a HIGH-SPIRITED lady. Full of determination and faith in her loved ones. During the first few episodes of TKA, i thought that she's still the same old Xiang Qin. Yeah, she really still is but now more mature when it comes to MATTERS that affects her family.

Of course, everything has its END, and so does the drama. It was so sad to think that it already ended but it left a deep MARK in many avid FANS' hearts.

I realized that LOVE should always be YOUNG and FRESH, no matter what obstacles a relationship has gone through, it shouldn't make one forget how WONDERFUL the feeling is. LOVE really moves in mysterious ways, and how it's EXPRESSED is also a mystery sometimes. A very good example is the love between Zhi Shu and Xiang Qin.

I was supposed to write a FAREWELL to the "Love Nest" that I once dwell in but it turned out that i'm reliving the MOMENTS and the feelings again. Maybe this is HOW I'm going to REMEMBER this.. not like GOODBYE, but SEE YOU.. :)

Will this Phone Make it to the Top???

I saw this phone while I was checking up the latest phones available in the market. This is the Motorola ROKR E8. According to the sales rep at Motorola Midtown, the phone will be available in May and the price will be around 16K pesos. I went to Motorola to check the price of the Motorola V8 but I saw this big attention grabber replica of the E8 with a video screen that presents the features of the phone. I stopped in front of the "big phone" and watched how this phone would be different from the rest.

You can easily notice that it has a touch sensitive keypad with changing functions, easily noticeable through the changes in the keypad lights, depending on the application you are using. If you are using it as music player, then it looks like a true mp3 player with circular scroll to navigate the song list.

It has a 2.0MP camera with 8x digital zoom, usb 2.0 port, 2G internal memory and a card slot for external memory of up to 4G. Connectivity wise, it has bluetooth and full HTML browser.

I think the only thing missing here is the 3G capability but nonetheless this is a phone worth buying.

S-h-O-p-P-a-H-o-L-i-C... I can't STOP!!!

My New Year's Resolution was to limit myself from buying clothes, shoes, and bags... in short... SHOPPING!!! For the first quarter of the year, I think I did pretty well. My closet is not full because I took out all the clothes that I don't like and don't use anymore. My new clothes were mostly bought by my mom. My shoe rack is so tidy now because I took out all the footwear that I don't use anymore. My new footwears were gifts last Christmas and last birthday. I read an article that actually you really don't need to buy so many clothes and shoes. You just have to look for TIMELESS pieces that could last long and traverse any season with a little MIX-n-MATCH =) I always keep that in mind. With footwear, I think I only need a pair of black shoes for work, maybe BLACK ANKLE BOOTS or BLACK PUMPS. I also need only a pair of WEDGES or SANDALS for casual chic look, a pair of SNEAKERS for rugged look, and two pairs of FLIP-FLOPS for laid back working days at the office. I think with footwear it's easier for me to stick with my PROMISE to myself. But with clothes... I think I'm starting to deviate from my GOAL.. haizzz I have to keep on trying. With bags, i haven't bought any coz most of my bags were just given as of now and i dont have any plans on buying yet... THAT"S GOOD! Shoppaholic... I can't stop but I have to CONTROL..

My Home is a War Zone..

HOME SWEET HOME.. hmm.. sometimes it't TRUE but often times its not. CLOSENESS is the BIGGEST factor that contributes to the already-designated WAR ZONE.. MY HOME. TALKING is good but often times leads to MISUNDERSTANDINGS because of GENERATION gap obviously seen in choice of WORDS while conversing. NOT TALKING is not good because a FAMILY should always have an OPEN communication. But IT becomes good when talking is so overwhelming and creating SILENCE would be a HEAVENT-SENT to break the slowly emerging WAR. This WAR ZONE.. often times not seen but definitely felt. A certain feeling like when you walk to the FRONT DOOR of your HOUSE, stand there for a sec or two. Its already as if you are preparing for your ENTRY to the war zone. Then you OPEN the door and take a step or two inside the house, trying to FEEL the AIR if its COOL or WARM. Its already as if you are SNIFFING gun powder in the KILLING FIELD. Your EYES are observing every movement as you walk through. Then you see one family MEMBER, you try to guess what that person is thinking about you. Its already as if you are holding a RIFLE and following your target's movement through the CROSSHAIR. What's next? If that person leave bad REMARKS, you fight back to DEFEND your yourself. If that person LOOK at you then go back to his/her activity without saying any word, you'd be left thinking to yourself "what was that for?". Either way, a WAR will SPARK. May it be a "WORD" war or a "COLD" war. In the END, whoever WINS and LOSSES, most probably the family won't be DEAD. What you'll SEE lying on the floor is the DIGNITY that once STOOD UP brave and tall, but now SHAMELESSLY resting against the cold FLOOR of the war zone I call HOME.

Flip-Flops.. This One is My Must-Have!

I'm not a fan of HAVAIANAS, nor CROCS. I'm a DIE HARD fan of IPANEMA and GRENDHA! At first, I don't see why lots of GIRLS and METROSEXUAL GUYS are going crazy with the so-called NEW-GEN-FLIP-FLOPS . Ok they're COLORFUL and EYE-CATCHING.. but COMFORTABLE? Hmm.. have to try one to know one! I so LOVE the DESIGNS and STRUCTURE of IPANEMA.. very good for CASUAL to DRESS-DOWN outfits. GRENDHA is very good if you like a more FEMININE style. My GRENDHA, i can even wear it with my OFFICE attire. I feel like my FEET are so DAMN pretty when I'm wearing my SANDALS! Right now, I only have two pairs of sandals. I wanted to be a pair of flops from IPANEMA but everytime I go to SHOE SALON to check out a pair of flops, my attention is always drawn to the G2B COLLECTION by my favorite supermodel GISELE BUNDCHEN! For my upcoming BIRTHDAY, I want to buy the G2B SUMMER FEM in BRONZE color... haiiiiiizzzzzzzzzz... SO ADDICTED to it ^^

mY baBy (Gab and the eee) ^^

The ASUS eee pc was my first ever "TECHY" TOY. Bought it last Valentine's Day. I was totally HEAD-OVER-HEALS with this THING! The first time that I saw this lappy at CYBERZONE in SM North Edsa, It was like my eyes were SPARKLING while looking at the pearl-white lappy. Up to this time, I'm still amazed at how SMALL and CUTE it looks like especially whenever I see it on display racks along with other bigger notebooks. I just realized that it's just as big as my BELLE DE JOUR POWER PLANNER! Prettty amazing huh?!
Using the default LINUX XANDROS in EASY MODE is really quite easy. Everything you basically need in a lappy is already BUNBLED-UP. But after a few times using it, I decided to use the FULL DESKTOP MODE that looks like WINDOWS OS. In the end, because I'm not really familiar in LINUX, I asked my brother to change the OS of my lappy to WINDOWS XP SP 2 (thanks Kuya Arjay ^^).
Now, with the new OS that was also modified by my brother to look like MAC OS, I'm more deeply INLOVE with my TOY. I also bought a sleek, black PHILIPS external hard drive because the drive space of my lappy is not enough to hold my FAVORITE PROGRAMS. I also discovered from my brother about the PORTABLE APPLICATIONS that I think are destined to be used with the eee =).
Well, the eee pc is really designed for KIDS, but I think also for ADULTS that are KIDS-AT HEART!!! My BABY really thinks that its ONE of his toys.. ^^

Work and the Oreo Cookie

Only few hours to go before my work is OFFICIALLY over for this week. This morning, I was upset not to find an individually packed SKY FLAKES soda crackers inside the old TUPPERWARE container used to hold cookies, biscuits, crackers, etc. Then I remembered that we bought a HYPERMARKET value pack containing two foil packs of OREO COOKIES and i-don't-remember-anymore bonus item. At first, I don't like to bring the pack of cookies at work because I feel that it has too much calories in it (not good for my so-so diet^^). But of course, who could resist the temptation of the cookies inside the blue foil pack! Actually I'm eating it right now while blogging and smiling while reminiscing a blissful moment that happened last EASTER SUNDAY. My brother is teaching my son HOW TO EAT AN OREO COOKIE, just like in the good old OREO COMMERCIAL some few years back!

The Start of Something..
