The gift from christian and juvy. A box of Dj Mix Cigar green apple flavor, Cigar Lighter and cologne from Scent station. It was an unexpected gift and I'm beginning to like surprises.hahahahah Yen-yen received a similar gift except for some specifics. Her cologne has this feminine scent and her lighter is pink or red (whatever!) with crystals on the side.
I still don't have gifts for them (Christian, Juvy and Yen) and I want it to be a personalized gift, something special. I'm really not good in choosing gifts, if it were a college subject I'm sure i'd flunk on it. So anyone out there who could share their brilliant ideas please help me out on this one.
We usually don't prepare for Christmas kasi nga may Islam family members kami. This year our family made an exemption. Basically because ang Girlfriend ng kuya ko flew all the way from Baguio to spend the holidays with us ( how sweet is that?). So there it was we were set to prepare for our festive Christmas diner. We decided na gawing theme ng diner is SEAFOOD. (bihira kasi nyan sa Baguio...hehehehe)
Palengke blues ang tatay ko at ako at 2pm. Since hati-hati ang gastos, ganon din ang pagluto ng kanya-kanyang specialty. Ako ang nka tuka na mag-luto ng Tahong in two different variety (adobong tahong in garlic and oyster sauce at ang panlaban kong tahong with tuna and mayo filling). Si papa ang sa Sugpo at si mama naman ang sa Crabs. My kuyang ang GF nya ay mayroon din chicken in bell pepper at desserts.
Aba at habang nasa isang wet market kami (Agdao public market... to be specific) syempre naman po at naghahanap ng mura ang tatay at ako. Nag ask lang si papa kung meron ba daw CRABS habang siya ay namimili ng sugpo natataran ta ba ang vendor, shock ang reaction namin. Pabirong sabi ni papa “na kulbaan man pud ta nimo... relax lang” ang punyeta can't take a joke.... paskong-pasko inaway kami... kasi ng nag-ask kami magkano ang CRABS ang sagot ba naman ng gaga “ ayaw na lang pangutana kay basig atakihon ka!” sabay taas ng kilay at pout... Biglang uminit ulo ni amang at nag walk-out. Hindi na bumili ng ni isang sugpo kahit anong pagpapakababa ng isang kasama ng gaga. Sama ako sa pag-alis ni daddy at sabay sabi sa tindera--- “miss we can afford to buy your crabs and sugpo, pwede ka nga naming bilhin at sunugin...!”
I know I should have not made that comment... sorry... nakakahiya... Ayoko lang kasi ng mga taong namimili ng customer. E ano ngayon kung nka tsinelas lang kami ng spartan at nka pangbahay lang. Respect is earned, wala yan sa suot at pananamit o itsura...
maldito ko noh? Sagdi lang....hehehehe naglagot lang jud ko kaya nko gi blog....
Tsinelas is the theme for this year. So guys if you have tsinelas na pwedeng e.offer please do contact me. I pamimigay namin sa mga batang Isla verde.
Thank you for your support.

I went home late last night and came in early to finish my report.... PRESURE at its peak for the MANCOM. Yesterday I was told it will be at 6pm. Deadlines was set for us to submit our reports to the IT in preparation for the much anticipated MANCOM.
This was supposed to be my first Management Committee Meeting for JIB e-Academy and I'm so damn nervous I can pee at my pants while I get ready for my report. I don't really have fears on reporting, I just dread the question and answer portion where I have to justify expenses and income of the previous months (June to October of 2007)...
At around 4pm the announcement came, to shake the grounds of of JIB e-Academy. Cancel ang MANCOM. Amazing noh?
It was somewhat a blessing but somewhat a joke...heheheheh
kulbaan ang choi oi!
The Date: December 15, 2007

mE, WRITING MY ENTRY
Side line muna! Michael, the younger brother of BERT, showed us some magic tricks. I was impressed and I promised that I would take lessons form him. hahahah
I am expecting a very fun gathering ahead. Things might not come up the way we plan it to be but it will surely be a success
I will report on the results of the party the next time I update this blog.
When I arrived at DMC I really didn't know where to find the delivery room. I started asking around for directions and thanks to Sir Guard I was led to the recovery area of DMC-Delivery room.
Then I saw the cutest little angel in the world ( I'm exaggerating...yeah) I know every baby is cute but this little angel is the most precious gift to my friend and to the world. A new life deserves a celebration (inoman na!). We named her ALEXANDRA NICOLE, Nicole for St. Nicholas (Sta. Claus) and we wanted her to have a boy sounding nickname so we added ALEXANDRA.
Next week I will be posting some pictures of ALEX in this blog.
I for one, as a “mestizo muslim” (as they call it) can relate to some of the essays. “What's in the Name” in particular, the essay authored by Gonaranao B. Musor got me.
After reading the book, I had a new realization. My name may have come from a not so good origin but it could possibly have a second meaning (not the UTANG meaning). With lots of hope and a little access to the internet, a little google, and there it was the hidden meaning of my name!!! ADEL stands for a PRINCE and LON, is LION, without the I, the king of the jungle. Yes! I am from a wealthy lineage not from an Utang.
Reading Gonaranao's essay made me a gallant bearer of my name. I now look at it in a different light.
The second installment entry will be posted after I read the book for the second time. Its a good book, I recommend that everyone should have a copy.
Let me give you a very brief summary why this manic depression came to us. All of a sudden, a few months back, we all received a call from the companies we applied for ( just 2 or 3 days interval). We all got in and started working for a job we don't really like. Weeks after getting into our new world, we all agreed that our job's a joke. It has no clear cut job description, it was not paying well, it was not fulfilling, that we just don't belong to the job...etc, etc, etc. Everyone made lousy excuses why we should not keep our jobs. To add injury to our crazy state of mind, a friend broke up with her long time BF, the other friend stopped going to school...etc...
It may sound a cliché but in the worst part of your life you will see who your true friends are. True enough we all stayed together, a flock of overly depressed young adults. We often go out together to visit a world of our own. Almost every after our 8 hours work day we meet at our sacred sanctuary “C5”. Its our haven, a place of freedom and solitude. It is where we see beer as water, cigar as air and where find pleasure in the most uncommon way.
AS I look back to that part of my life I'm glad it all happened. I'm even happier because I found a way out of that bad fate. I'm pleased to say that during that crisis some good people came to tag along and be a part of the roller coaster adventure. I'm even thankful for the simple fact that I was able to share this experience with some of the people that matters most to me.
At this point I'm saying goodbye to the old me, no more beer and night outs. If my friends would make an entry about this experience I'm sure they will do the same (atik lng bitaw oi... dli btaw ko xure). BAGONG BUHAY!!!!
I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life
It's gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right...
As I, turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat
This wind is blowin' my mind
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat
Who am I, to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs
A summer's disregard, a broken bottle top
And a one man's soul
They follow each other on the wind ya' know'
Cause they got nowhere to go
That's why I want you to know
I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It's time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
Could it be really me, pretending that they're not alone?
A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken hear
tAnd a washed-out dream
They follow the pattern of the wind, ya' see
Cause they got no place to be
That's why I'm starting with me
I'm starting with the man in the mirror(Ooh!)
I'm asking him to change his ways(Ooh!)
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
Bakit si Bert ang dapat mong maging favorite teller:
- kasi pag mag withdraw ka sa kanya at may breakdown, sinusunod niya.
- Kahit kunukulit at inaasar pa siya habang nasa work, ayaw paring ma short o ma over.
- Laging nka smile kahit One versus One hundred na ang ratio.
- Kasi di xa nglulunch para lang mapagsilbihan ang clients niya.
- Bert lives with the idea of METRO BANK with him your in good hands.
Bakit hindi mo dapat asarin si BERT:
- Kasi pag inasar mo siya at lumaban kawawa ka.
- Pag may makita siyang mali sayo, uulit-ulitin niya un para mapahiya ka.
- Hindi siya naguguilty pag na-inis ka lalo na pag ikaw ang nauna.
Bakit kailangan mo xang kaibiganin:
- kasi ang saya ng videokeng magdamagan sa kanila.
- Ang sarap ng handaan pag fiesta or bday.
- Pwede kang mg-utang sa kanya.
- Kasi mabigat ang GOLDEN WATCH niya. Raise your left hand beh.
- Kasi maputi daw xa.
- Sinusuplayan nya ng hangin ang boung davao. (sa laki ba naman ng butas ng ilong nun).
- Masaya kasi xa kasama. (sobra)
- Di ka mababagot pag kasama mo siya.
- Mabuting kaibigan, masayang ka kwentohan, ma alaska na tao.
- Oh as promised ha.... gi buhatan ta jud ka ug entry sa akong blog.hahahahah
I am just so proud of this group. Its composed of some of Davao's best talents. From the music to the lyrics to the voice. They offer the most calming and serenading sound you'll ever hear. This group is named STRINGS ON THE SHED. They perform with such ease and aura far more better than all the acoustic group I know.
I personally came across some of their members (schoolmates ko! Like TR, Jobo, ray, RAffy...hehehe) and its great to see them bloom at their chosen craft. TR (CHESKA) the girl on lead vocals is one of the finalist of GMA7 coca-cola ride to fame. In fact in my personal opinion she has the best voice in the competition.
Catch them on their gigs and live performances. You'll surely never have enough of them.
Support Davao Talents. We have everything at its best and in the field of music STRINGS ON the SHED is there to validate the claim.
This year we are planning to do it again. For the Isla Verde kids christmas is not that important and so we wish to remind them again that this is a season for joy and giving.
We would like to ask for your support in this project. Please leave a comment in this blog if you have something to share. We need toys, candies, old clothes, school supplies and even financial support. Lets thank the Lord for our blessings and share them.
Let us always remember our responsibility to our community and our fellowmen.
Lets count our blessings.
Thank you very much.
