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.
