hurting



Do you know what's hard about being too strong?


Nobody might care to ask if you're hurt...

to go or not to go?

Nagbasa ng newspaper...
nag browse sa internet...
Na intriga...
Nagpadala ng application letter, Curriculum vitae at Transcript...
Ni replyan ng employeer...
Nagset ng interview...

Hindi masyadong malaki ang sahod na offer...
Libreng bahay at medical nga lang...
Libreng round trip ticket pauwi ang ibibigay ng employer...
Gusto ko ang trabaho...
Kaya nag-iisip ako kung tatanggapin ko ang offer...
Masyadong malayo ang lugar na yun...
Di ko kabisado ang mga gawi ng tao...
Ewan ko...
Hintayin na lang natin ang final interview...
Baka sakaling ma-aliw ako mag-GO ako...
or baka mag Not to go...

the call

I wanted to write so many things for today. I want to share the fun drinking session we had last night, the annoyance of BREAK issue in the office and the speech of Oprah in Stanford University which I discovered through a blog (which is another story itself). I was thinking of a fun way to get this all up in one entry mainly because this all happened in a single day. I was thinking of it last night then I fell asleep.

In the morning, my good sleep was disturbed by a phone call. When I looked at the caller ID it was a long distance telephone call. I settled myself up and answered the call.

Me: Hello! Good morning!
Caller: Good morning! This is A**a from T*/-^&%^&O! Can I talk to Mr. Adellon
Me: Hello! A**a, this is Adellon. How may I help you?
Caller: I was looking through our file, and I saw your resume. You did apply for us as an Audit staff right?
Me: Yes, and if I remember it correctly, I submitted my resume late last year. Around November I think.
Caller: Are you employed right now?
Me: Yes Ma'am.
Caller: Oh, I see. Thank you for your time Mr. Adellon.
Me: Thank you for the call A**a! Have a great day!

(something like that ang conversation!)

And that was it! I waited 2 months for that call and just when I had given up, it came. I see the point of connecting the dots now. If I had been hired in that company, I wouldn't be here. I now appreciate the bad luck I had when I was still looking for a job. Now, I know, I love my JOB.
If they called me and hired me before I was hired by this company:
I would
1. Still be working as an audit staff until now.
2. I would have been teaching accounting or any other business subject in a certain school.
3. Wala akong blog now.

the song that made my day

A workmate was humming something after our lunch break. It sounded kinda funny and odd. I listened to it more closely only to hear the double meaning song he was singing. the lyrics goes something like this:


Ang kasaysayan ng lupang may amoy.
Tinubuan sa gitna ng kasoy
Kung titingnan sa malayoan ay gubat
Kung lapitan mo ay sugat.
Kung aamoyin, amoy sap-sap
(di ko na narining ano ang sunod na lyrics)


Anyone who knows this song please send me the title and complete lyrics.

to a friend




Lagi-lagi pag kailangan kong tumawa at mag-aliw, bininisita ko si REYNA ELENA . At ngayon nga na LAZY saturday dahil pagod ako at dipa nakakarecover mula sa inuman at magdamagang trip namin ni KOKONG (one-on-one!) ayokong magtrabaho!, akoyo ko talaga! bahala sila. Kaya dahil medyo galit sa mundo at na-iinis, na isipan kong bumisita sa Palasyo ni MAHAL na REYNA para makahanap ng nakakaaliw-ng entry.


Di lang ako na aa-aliw, na pa-isip pa ako at medyo nakarelate sa entry ni REYNA!. Matagal na entry na yun, ung bang pumasa na sa standard ng CENTURY OLD entries(hehehe). Pero pagkabasa ko na-isip ko na kami to ng mga kaibigan ko. Sumagi ba sa Kumikinang na mind ni REYNA na e-didicate sa amin to (feeling close!). Kaya yun, dahil nga wla din akong maisip na magandang isulat Hiniram ko ito kay reyna (sana di xa magalit) at i-pinost.


Para ito sa isang kaibigan ng kaibigan ng kaibigan ko na EWAN ko sa kanya! (hehehehe... joke!)


I'll be home for Christmas ang pinamagat ni reyna elena dito, at salamat sa entry nyang ito (kahit di Christmas season ngayon) naibulalas ko ang matagal ko ng gustong sabihin sa MGA TAO dyan, pero di ko ma put in to proper words.


"Buti nga sayo!, Sige magpakasasa ka! At pag umiyak ka! Wag na wag ka ng pupunta dito.!!!"


Palagi naming sinasabi ang linyang to sa isa't-isa , pero bumabalik parin kami kahit ga-DRUM2 na ang isinusukang luha ng mga mokong kong kaibigan. Ganon nga siguro ang tunay na magkakaibigan nagsusukahan.


SALAMAT reyna! Your da beSTest!hahaha

Richard Poon

This guy is the newest singing sensation in ASAP 08. Singing mostly classic songs with very classy and nice approach. I really like his calming voice and relaxed aura when he sings.

Got this photo from his multiply account. Magaling siya talaga at masarap pakinggan mga kanta niya. May album siya ngayon "I'll take care of you" ang alam ko isa sa mga track na nandon.

Kaya ko ginawa ang post na ito kasi ARAW ng KALAYAAN ngayon at angkop ang sout niyang shirt na I love Pinas sa theme natin . Ang layo ng connection, alam ko yun, eh sa yun po ang nakita kong connection.hehehe

text message: walking away


It's the silence that tells it all. Sometimes its not the yelling and the tears. All it takes is for two people to sit beside each other and feel that something is wrong, that what was there before is not there anymore, that they're miserable when apart but much worst when together and that there are only two options left... either they sit still and ignore the pain or one gathers enough courage to stand up and walkaway.

Happy Kalayaan Day


Sa araw na ito, Isang daan at sampung taon na tayong malaya. Minsan nakakalimutan natin ipagdiwang ang kahalagahan ng pagiging demokratiko at malayang bansa. Minsan naman nagiging balasubas tayo sa pagpapahayag ng ating pagiging malaya.

Karamihan, kadalasan mas mahalaga pa sa atin ang araw ng mga puso at iba pang ka cornyhan na pwede nating isipin. Maari nating maging dahilan ang pagiging PERSONAL in nature ng mga nakagawiang pagdiriwang na ito. Pero di ba PERSONAL sa atin ang pagiging Pilipino? Di ba ito ang ating pagka tao? Diba ito tayo?

Maligayang Araw ng KALAYAAN!

Off to work

I saw the sign before the proposal was even brought up. I am officially going to Surigao. I was warned before hand that this day will come and that I will be the front runner of the act. I am now a certified accounting in charge/auditor/ finance officer/… (And I mean …) But I love my job. Honestly! I love it minus the MAX factor, it is perfect.

Next week, June 9 I am off to Surigao and Butuan. I adore Surigao for its sea foods and warm people. It is a beautiful place. I just hate the uncertainty which I will be facing when I get there. I am still hopeful that everything will turn out positively. Butuan is a new place for me but if I can iron out things in Surigao, Butuan will be easy. But please don’t send me to Marawi. I have never been there, though I’ve heard it is a nice place. But if you send me to Marawi, please send me there alone. Don’t let MARSHMALLOW man tag along. I can’t handle him. I can’t take his attitude. I might die of heart attack or hypertension. Send me anywhere in the world but minus HIM. We might end up killing each other or worst I might end up killing my self.

I am not ready for all this. I am excited but apprehensive at the same time. I really have to prepare myself. I really have to. I know I can pull this off. Cross fingers please.

for the love of Coffee and Beer

Coffee and beer usually comes in package. After a long beer drinking session, I would often look for a good cup of coffee. A bottle of beer takes me to a safe haven where I could shout, be wild and be someone I am not. A cup of coffee brings me back to my real world.

I have friends who would always invite me for a bottle or two (or more) of beer and few friends would just be contented in nice chit-chat over a cup of good coffee. I admit, nowadays, a cup of good coffee is more expensive compared to two bottles of beer which explains why I prefer beer over coffee. I love both though any invitation for a cup of coffee or a bottle of beer will be most welcome.

Another GREY day


Here are some of my favorite quotes in Grey's Anatomy



There are some things you can't escape. And other things you just don't want to
know.





Remember when you were a kid and your biggest worry was, like, if you'd get a
bike for your birthday or if you'd get to eat cookies for breakfast? Being an
adult? Totally overrated. I mean seriously, don't be fooled by all the hot shoes
and the great sex and the no parents anywhere telling you what to do. Adulthood
is responsibility. Responsibility, it really does suck. Really, really sucks.
Adults have to be places and do things and earn a living and pay the rent.
hello? Talk about responsibility. Kind of makes bikes and cookies look really,
really good, doesn't it? The scariest part about responsibility? When you screw
up and let it slip right through your fingers.





Knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping. And that
even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake beats the hell
out of never trying.
