1st on the Agenda

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 8:50 PM 1 comments
The weekend has been one hell of a ride. The Colympics has finally began and I can't wait to blog about it but this article has been bugging me since seeing it yesterday so I want to blog about this first. Besides, the photos of the Colympics are not yet complete. So on to the subject of this blog entry.

The Spratlys have been a long standing debate between the Philippines and China. This issue has given birth to the article I've posted below which was written by Tsip Tsao, a stupid Chinese Man who has a memory of a gold fish and has forgotten what kind of morals his people have. Read on:

The War At Home

March 27th, 2009

The Russians sank a Hong Kong freighter last month, killing the seven Chinese seamen on board. We can live with that—Lenin and Stalin were once the ideological mentors of all Chinese people. The Japanese planted a flag on Diàoyú Island. That’s no big problem—we Hong Kong Chinese love Japanese cartoons, Hello Kitty, and shopping in Shinjuku, let alone our round-the-clock obsession with karaoke.

But hold on—even the Filipinos? Manila has just claimed sovereignty over the scattered rocks in the South China Sea called the Spratly Islands, complete with a blatant threat from its congress to send gunboats to the South China Sea to defend the islands from China if necessary. This is beyond reproach. The reason: there are more than 130,000 Filipina maids working as $3,580-a-month cheap labor in Hong Kong. As a nation of servants, you don’t flex your muscles at your master, from whom you earn most of your bread and butter.

As a patriotic Chinese man, the news has made my blood boil. I summoned Louisa, my domestic assistant who holds a degree in international politics from the University of Manila, hung a map on the wall, and gave her a harsh lecture. I sternly warned her that if she wants her wages increased next year, she had better tell every one of her compatriots in Statue Square on Sunday that the entirety of the Spratly Islands belongs to China.

Grimly, I told her that if war breaks out between the Philippines and China, I would have to end her employment and send her straight home, because I would not risk the crime of treason for sponsoring an enemy of the state by paying her to wash my toilet and clean my windows 16 hours a day. With that money, she would pay taxes to her government, and they would fund a navy to invade our motherland and deeply hurt my feelings.

Oh yes. The government of the Philippines would certainly be wrong if they think we Chinese are prepared to swallow their insult and sit back and lose a Falkland Islands War in the Far East. They may have Barack Obama and the hawkish American military behind them, but we have a hostage in each of our homes in the Mid-Levels or higher. Some of my friends told me they have already declared a state of emergency at home. Their maids have been made to shout “China, Madam/Sir” loudly whenever they hear the word “Spratly.” They say the indoctrination is working as wonderfully as when we used to shout, “Long live Chairman Mao!” at the sight of a portrait of our Great Leader during the Cultural Revolution. I’m not sure if that’s going a bit too far, at least for the time being.

Chip Tsao is a best-selling author and columnist. A former reporter for the BBC, his columns have also appeared in Apple Daily, Next Magazine and CUP Magazine, among others.

I'm sure your mouth is agape like mine is after reading this trash. Good thing someone retaliated with this award winning write up:

A Chinese writer Chip Tsao published in the Hong Kong Magazine calling us “a nation of servants”. Tsao or Chip fails to see that everything in the world is temporary, as an Asian he fails to see the wheel in our lives that sometimes he who is on top could be at the bottom and those at the bottom could be on top. Perhaps what he did which is to insult us is to please China which has a claim over Spratlys- a lip service or a kiss mark on China’s ass.

The fact that we have domestic helpers in China or in the Middle East or even in the United States or Europe does not make us a nation of servants. And even if we are, what’s wrong with it? It does not make us slaves. It does not make us less human. We like any other people in the world have a right to be given our due. This is a person who thinks he is so high, so mighty, he forgets that he too is human and that makes him a monster.

The Bible tells of humble people who rose up to their station despite being merely slaves in Egypt or servants in Babylon. These are people who were chained, flogged, enslaved and yet they still cling to hope that one day there will come a time that the wheel of fortune will turn for on their side.

Mr. Tsao must have forgotten history, he has forgotten the Chinese peril where Chinese coolies worked to build railroads in the United States, and in fact a judge there pronounced “Here you are, all the laws of Texas, and nothing in them says it’s a crime to kill a Chinaman”. Has he forgotten that his signs in Europe insulted his ancestors with signs prohibiting dogs and Chinamen from entering in restaurants and here he is trying to insult our countrymen, our workers who worked in his country not because they want to serve, but because they view it as a way of bringing the bacon to their family here at home.

One day Mr. Tsao- you will eat your words because what is true now, may not be true in the future and the fact that Hong Kong now may seem to rise, it may be charcoal in the future. You and you descendants will reap what you sow because you fail to understand, the fact that one is toiling or laboring, does not make that person smaller or meeker, that in fact makes him or her bigger and greater, society and capitalism only made that so.

Listen Mr. Tsao and perhaps you will hear---

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.

Good eh?

As for my opinion, which I have repeatedly expressed in the threads in Multiply:

I have read the article of this Chinese man and he was really out of line. I was surprised his trash got published in a magazine and that he was "supposed" to be a former BBC writer. Chinese media has no morals; like the other acts of the Chinese (melamine scandal, lead infested toys just to name a few) they don't care if they are out of line or will hurt others just as long as they make money out of it. I'd rather be from a land of servants than from a land of money hungry people with no morals.

And now the stupid Chinese man was issuing a public apology? Interesting. Has he finally seen that his people are more disgraced that he has painted us Filipinos? He can shove his apology up his ass. Damage done. Sorry, old man.

A cheerier post tomorrow, I hope.

Power Overwhelming

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 8:43 AM 1 comments
The Colympics is two days away and I still have loads of things to do! A while ago I woke up the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep because my head is so full with things to do. If only I have a pensive like Dumbledore's! I need to siphon all of my thoughts to gain bearing. I'm so overwhelmed right now that I wanna cry! The Colympics is such a big thing; the biggest in my career to date and pulling it off will really make the mark we are seeking in the Call Center Industry. Bibay, breath in, breath out! Mantra: The Colympics will be a success. We will be a success. We can make it!

The Boyet Fajardo Insident

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 12:13 PM 4 comments
I was reading Sis Carla's blog when I read her entry about Boyet Fajardo. Boyet who, right? Well, the self proclaimed god thinks he is so popular and great that he should be known by everybody and those who don't are stupid or lesser beings. Here is his tirade in Duty Free Philippines:

Last March 13, 2009, Filipino Fashion Designer Angelino Boyet Fajardo created a scene, to the shock and horror of shoppers and employees of Duty Free Philippines alike, when a cashier politely asked for his ID after presenting his unsigned credit card. This is a standard operating procedure applicable to all stores to verify ownership of the credit card and prevent fraud.

Suddenly, the designer reportedly got furious and, at the top of his voice, started berating the cashiers and managers of Duty Free Philippines. He might have thought a celebrated person like he is, with all his accolades and fame, has gone unrecognized by the cashier. A new well-trained casual worker who is carefully doing his job. The designer further shocked bystanders by cursing the people there with words such as leche and p...ina, while angrily expressing surprise why the people there did not recognize him.

Store managers and officers were sought to appease the matter, explaining to him that it is all included as a standard operating procedure in credit card payment for the safety, not only for the company but also his own. Ignoring all this, he pulled out his phone and threatened to call on high positioned government officials whom he allegedly knew, like doing a power-play to make these people realize how important he is. He went on saying "Mga leche kayo! Hindi niyo ako kilala? Ako si Boyet Fajardo! At itong p...ina na babaeng ito (pointing to a lady officer) at ang baklang ito (pointing to the cashier) ay walang kwentang mga tao! I want them fired!!!"

His yelling and berating went on and on. He cannot calm down and as he appeared to have bloodshot eyes, like that of a drunk person and or under an influence. He threw his passport on the cashier's face and later intentionally stepped on the cashier's foot to say "Ay sorry, di ko sinasadya!" He goes on to say, that only if the cashier kneel down before him and/or allow him to freely slap the cashier's face, may he get satisfied.

The ill-fated cashier, with all the onlookers watching, stand down and just simply gave in to probably he thought would end the matter. Crying in shame he slowly knelt down and apologize (for actually doing his job) before this self proclaimed GOD, perhaps for fear of loosing his job. No slapping was made to the cashier's face but the incident landed a harsher and reverberating sound to the faces of the lesser people of this society.

Fortunately, his inhumane acts were caught on CCTV in which a portion was featured in YouTube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojv_kbsEQHQ&feature=channel_page

With such disrespect, discrimination and humiliation towards a good worker, a less fortunate person and a fellow Filipino...

1. We are calling all citizens to stop patronizing Boyet Fajardo's RTW labels such as Substance in SM department stores, Boyet Fajardo and Initials in Landmark and Robinson's department stores.
2. We are calling on all malls to pull out or stop distributing his products in your outlets.
4. We are calling on the Commission on Human Rights, Department of Labor and Employment and all human rights and labor activists to take appropriate legal actions on this matter.
5. We are calling all foreign embassies to deny him of entry to your respective countries.
6. We are calling on the Fashion Designers Association of the Philippines to dishonor him of his membership and profession.

...To give him a lesson and to help us stop him from victimizing the underprivileged over and over and over again.

Poor cashier, he met the devil himself on Friday the 13th.

I always hated people who think that they are so powerful, so popular, so gifted that they are above everyone else and also the law. They forget that one stone thrown in their direction can make them crumbling down from their self proclaim pedestal. Mr Boyet Fajardo, no matter how much money and how much talent you supposed to have, which to tell you the truth most of us don't know or don't even care about, you DO NOT have the right to do what you have done. You are the idiot, assuming that everybody knows you and not knowing what is the SOP in credit card shopping. You have forgotten that you won't be in your filthy shoes now if not for the countless people who do not know who you are but patronize your products. Now, your wish has been granted: Everybody knows you but now your products won't be patronized anymore. Prepare for poverty.

Busy!

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 11:05 PM 0 comments
A quick post. I have so many things to blog about like the W@W Party last Friday for example and the Colympics (so what else is new?), meeting new friends, my snapping at the bus condoctor for no real reason, having a new idea for my events company and so on and so forth but I have no time for now. I'm so stressed and tired to the pint of dinudugo nako literally! I have my menstrual period again for the third time this month. The last time this happened was when I was assigned in Bulacan and I was commuting daily. My doctor prescribed me to take the pill to regularize my hormones. I am still taking the pill and I live 15 minjutes away from work and I am still bleeding on a weekly basis. That's how abnormal my system has become ladies and gentlemen. So for now, I'm holding back on blogging about those stuff until I've rested enough. Or till I have all the photos from the W@W Party to support my kwentos. Till then!

Colympics, again.

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 9:26 AM 0 comments
I'm still a little sleepy because Jay and I spent the night doing the tickets for the Colympics. As the opening comes nearer, the more complications arise. I ended up with a sorta shouting match on the celfone yesterday with my technical head because of some problem on the scheduling. Still a ton of things to do and still a lot of money to come out of our pockets. I will be so happy and relieved when all of these is over. I can't wait for the head rush and happiness an event gives me when it is ongoing. And oh, Coco Beach said yes so we have a free vacation on Puerto Galera after the Colympics! A small "yey!" for us!

P.A.W.S.

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 12:28 PM 2 comments

I have always been an animal lover. I've had countless of pets; from cats to dogs to rabbits to rats, I loved them all. I'm lucky because all of us in the family love animals that me and my brother are always free to bring home pets whenever. It doesn't matter if they don't have any breed, we still love them dearly. So dear that aside from feeding them and bathing them (yes, even the cats), we cuddle them, stroke them, buy them clothes and toys and even talk to them! To date we only have two dogs (our askal doggies died last year) - Alfred, my Rottweiler and Twinkle, my sister/parents' bunso/Shitzu Maltese brattinelang Deng Deng, and 6 pusakals - Tuki-Tuki, Mamoth, Tagpian, Tails, Whitie and Bubongers. Bubongers used to be a stray cat who found her way to our roof. Every meal time she would meow her lungs off so that we would feed her also. After several months of doing this, we finally gained her trust and now she joins our other cats in eating in their plate.

I learned about The Phiilippine Animal Welfare Society last year when I was surfing the internet. Being the animal lover that I was, I imeediately joined the group. They are dedicated in advocating animal rights and welfair. They also run a shelter wherein they save homeless and abused animals and rehabilitate them so that they can be pets to someone in the future. I really admire them for doing this because all animals, with breed or without, deserve to be loved. We don't choose our pets because they are pretty. We embrace them to our home no matter what they look like or how they behave. I remember having a cat when I was young who came from the streets. She would bite or scratch me for no reason whatsoever but we still loved her with all our heart. In a world where there are a lot of human suffering, animal welfare can be often overlooked. But this shouldn't be the case. Man cannot live in this world alone and the animals are created by God to help us. It is therefore our duty to take care of them.

"Nicole" Recants

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 11:32 PM 0 comments
This is the breaking news headline of The Philippine Daily Inquirer online today at 9PM. "Nicole" was known as the girl who was supposedly raped by Lance Corporal Daniel Smith. Well, remove the supposedly now coz apparently she was not raped at all as per her sworn statement issued just last March 12! Imagine all the tax payers' money gone to waste just because of this little liar! I never believed she was raped anyway. Afterall, no girl will go party with a bunch of men if she was decent! And now the world is again laughing at us. See the disgusting story here.

*****
I just finished watching The Bachelor An Officer and a Gentleman. I was wrong; Andy didn't propose to anybody tonight! I was really looking forward to that. My nosiness got the better of me and I surfed for the "winner" of this little contest. Apparently Tessa won. I like Tessa but I thought he would still choose Bevin because it looks like they have more chemistry. Now I want to see more than ever how did that little twist of fate happened!

March 28 is fast approaching!

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 11:45 AM 0 comments
March 28 is fast approching and we are super busy these past few days. March 28 will be the much awaited opening of the 1st Call Center Olympics that our company Popcorn Events Production has produced and organized. We are so, so excited about this project since it will be our biggest project to date. We are just sad that we weren't able to get as many sponsors as we are hoping for. It is only in that aspect that I have felt there really is a financial crisis. Even call centers are cutting back expenses even if they are making million of pesos in just one month for only one account!

Anyhoo, aside from the adrenaline rush the event is giving me I am also busy day dreaming about the things and conveniences our income from this event will bring us. I am just aiming to spend it on three things:

1. Finally pay my mom the money I borrowed to start a venture;
2. Go to Palawan for my birthday/our honeymoon;
3. Buy a SLR camera (still dunno if I want a Canon or a Nikon).

Coco Beach from Puerto Galera also emailed me yesterday wanting to sponsor our event by giving gift certificates. I'm hoping for a vacation in Pureto galera in the horizon now too.

I'm so looking forward to the Colympics next year. We have learned a lot from the first one that we are hoping that next year would be a little easier for all of us. Also, the event would have gotten mileage by then making it easier to get sponsors. But for now we are still hoping Cebu Pacific would come around and give us free tickets to Boracay or Cebu! That would be really awesome!

Older Doesn't Necessarily Mean Wiser

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 8:58 AM 2 comments
Since January 2009, we have been living in my parents' house in Pampanga. Jay and I opted to give up our tiny apartment in Bulacan for two reasons: 1. because my dad is always out of the house and always asking us to house-sit that we thought that it will be less stressful to just live in the house than to just come spend the night and lug everything everytime that happens and 2. my mom asked us to just move in because of reason number 1. Today, Dad again is out of the house because he has to attend to the anihan in our farm. Jay was supposed to go but work prevented hinm from doing so (and who will be with me in the night naman diba?). Anyway, so I go to work today commuting. Our office is inside a big compund and so we have to take a tricycle to go there. In the jeepney ride, a woman of 40-50 years old in mint green uniform is apparently working in the same compound as I was and so she alighted the jeep with me. In can be seen that there are no tricycles available in the terminal and there is a somehow line formed in it. Somehow because the line was so crooked that you can't distinguish who follows who really. The only thing distinguishable is the end and first of the line. And so I take the my place in the end of the line knowing it is the right thing to do. And what does this woman do who came AFTER me? Take her place BEHIND THE FIRST ONE ON THE LINE! I can't believe the gal! You will think she could have known better being a woman of her age but no, she doesn't care if she is stepping on some toes as long as she won't be late. I wanted to tell her that there is a line but the people she overtook are not saying anything so I kept my mouth shut. Later I found out that this 40 something woman in a mint green uniform works at The Department of Education. And that, my friends, is what made it worse. Imagine our kids' teachers being taught values by someone like that. No wonder a lot of people don't have good manners these days!

Friday the 13th

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 10:27 PM 3 comments
I bought a very pretty purple party dress, grecian cut and worth P1,800, and I accidentally left the package in the bus I rode home from Manila.

Happy Friday the 13th to me! Dang! =(


Happy Birthday, Toyang!

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 9:31 AM 1 comments
Today is my brother bear's 25th birthday! Hoorah! Happy birthday, Toyang! Here's to a more wonderful life! Ate loves you even if I yak at you all the time. :P hehe

Today also is *gasp* Friday the 13th! I'm not really superstitious but it pays just to be careful especially on these tumultuous times. Just last Monday and Tuesday, top government officials got ambushed and this 2AM our local lumang palengke (old public market) got burned to the ground and they are suspecting arson. Apparently there are talks of rebelling against our city mayor due to new policies. So again, it won't hurt to be careful nowadays especially now that it's supposed to be a day of jinxes and bad luck. I just hope it won't affect the results of my brother's exam for today is his CISCO licensure exam. His CISCO license will expire on May so he is taking his exam now to avoid expiration. It's a very tough, not to mention expensive, exam but I know brother bear can do it...again! Good luck, Toyang! And tomorrow, we will party to celebrate!

*** that's Toyang and me at Congo Grill, SM.

OMG! She Said What?

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 1:05 PM 3 comments
Okay, I just have to blog about this.

I'm a vendor. Meaning, I refer people to call centers and get paid when they get hired. A lot of people know this business of mine and hubby's. Heck, a huge chunk of our wedding money came from this. It's a good business.

Now, a certain person availed of our "help" last year. She got in because she is good. Unfortunately, we didn't get paid for that transaction because of some glitch in the contract. Fast forward to 2009 and that person became unhappy with the company. She wanted more salary for her skills thus she again availed our "help." The other company we are handling has an account for experienced and really good agents that pay more than twenty grand and she is targeting that account. She went through the process and got it. Again, no surprises there. She is a doctor after all. But now comes the part wherein she made me drop my mouth in disbelief. She texted me this lunch:

"Hi, good pm. Nabigay naba ang referral fee mo from (call center)? I DO DESERVE HALF OF IT, sis. MAHIRAP SYA IPASA..."

Say what?!!

She knows I'm a vendor; I get paid for sending her there. So she intended to mangumisyon from the very start? And what's with the I deserve half of it? She DESERVES? What does she mean by that? Didn't she need a job that's why she went to my client? It's like she worked hard to pass the application process so she can get the half of my fee. She WORKED HARD to get half of my fee that's why she DESERVES it?! Is that it?! I'm still shaking my head in disbelief here! Makikita mo talaga ang tunay na kulay ng tao sa pera! Magkakasubukan talaga!I To think haven't even billed her damn application yet!


My New Fave Show: The Bachelor An Officer and A Gentleman

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 10:01 AM 0 comments
A haven't been a big fan of reality shows. For some reason I hate having a show to follow and the sense of being lost when you miss an episode. For this reason I haven't been a big fan of Survivor, The Amazing Race or even Pinoy Big Brother like most people I know. But for some reason, maybe the chismosa in me, I got hooked in watching The Batchelor: An Officer and a Gentleman in ETC. Like the previous The Bachelor shows, this one is still about a single man looking for the woman of his dreams. The show will culminate with a proposal and hopefully a happy ever after marriage. I enjoy watching Andy, the dashing Navy Leutenant, charm the women and try his best get to know them but all through out the show me and Jay have our eyebrows up in skepticism. For one, we don't believe that you can have that many connection with a number of women at the same time. Maybe that's the monogamous spirit in me talking but I believe that you can only like-like one person at a time and being in like with that many women at the same time is fishy. I don't think he is being genuine. In the morning he is telling this woman he really likes her and he can see a future with her and in the afternoon he is saying almost the same spiel to another one. Huh? Second, I know they are Americans and they have different dating behavious than us Filipinos but is it necessary to kiss, hug and hold hands with all those women? It made us think he is there for the free chansing. And third, can you really look for real love in a TV series wherein you only have a short period of time to get to know one another? I don't think so.

But in the end I still feel excited to watch who may end up with Andy. I'm still rooting for Tessa, the dark haired girl who we suspect to have Filipino blood which got stronger when we saw her mom in yesterday's episode, but she kinda acts weird when she's with Andy. I feel she is not acting her natural self maybe because she is trying to control her feelings. Jay thinks Andy will pick Bevin because they look, well, in love with each other. At least I think Bevin is really in love with Andy. Next week, the show will show Andy with the three remaining women (Amber got booted out last night. See! He is lovey dovey with her, kissing her passionately and embracing her then he booted her out!) in Hawaii and in the end he will choose one to propose to. That's gonna be a real "Ouch!" to the other two women and really "entertaining" to us audience.

Here's the dashing bachelor Andy:

The Eraserheads Final Set and Francis M.

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 11:48 AM 0 comments
March 6 and 7, 2009 proved to be days to remeber in the history of Philippine music as the King of Philippine Rap took his last breath on the 6th and the country's primier band the Eraserheads took the stage once more and performed together as a group on the 7th.

Good Bye Francis M.

I personally cannot believe this news the first time I saw it on Multiply. Kiko, as Francis M. is also known to many, is vibrant and full of life. Even if he has been diagnosed with a rare kind of blood cancer, he is still active in the music scene. In fact, he recently formed a new band with his good friend Ely Buendia and started recording late last year. It was a short life for Francis M. but full of meaning as he open the Filipinos eyes to a new genre of music. I always liked him as a performer and loved all the songs he has released especially Kaleidoscope World which has a profound and deep meaning that can be appreciated by everyone no matter what age.

To the King of Philippine Rap, thank you for your genius. You will sorely be missed!

The Eraserheads Final Set Concert: A Huge Success

Fans of all ages gather in the SM Mall of Asia last March 7 to witness the Eraserheads' Final Set Concert. Me, Jay and my brother bear were so excited to be part again of this piece of history in the Philippine Music Industry. As for me, I have been a big, big fan of the group since I was 13 years old. I watched all their concerts in Pampanga and went to our local radio station just to talk to them before their gigs and have their authographs. I have all their albums, know all their songs by heart and even have a copy of their special ed magazine, The Pill Box. I just love them to death so missing their big concert was never an option. I will watch come hell or high water! Unfortunately, we were unable to score VIP tickets unlike last time when Marcus himself gave me 4 big ones so we have to settle ourselves in the Silver A box because my Mom won't forgive us if we got VIP or Gold tickets (which were P5,000 and P3,000 respectively.) Anyway, everything was oh so worth it! The guys played better than ever and they playedso many songs to the delight of the audience. In my estimate, they played a total of 40-50 songs! And the Eheads surprised the crowd by playing 3 more songs (Ligaya, Sembreak and Toyang) after they have ended the concert and did a group hug! Yey! I'm predicting another reunion concert brewing up! OR, the group getting back together! They played 40-50 songs and they are still bitin? If that's not an epifany I dunno what it is!

Surprises of the evening include:

1. Raymund fronting songs Alcohol and Insomia to name a few;
2. Marcus fronting Wag Mo nang Itanong; and
3. The group playing Super Proxy as a tribute to Francis M. Kiko sang the original rap version of the song in their album Cutterpillow. They also sang the chorus of Kaleidoscope World again for Francis M.

Anyway, here are pictures of Francis Magalona with Eraserheads frontman Ely Buendia:

She's back!

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 12:39 PM 0 comments
A long, long, long time ago, also known as the pre-Jay period, there exist in my world the kerida turned girlfriend. The girl who wormed her way into our relationship as a kerida but eventulaly became the girlfriend. She makes me sick coz she is the total opposite of me - sickeningly sweet, patweetums and utterly dumb. After she won over the good for nothing ex, she stalked me through my blog leaving crude comments and also thru friendster by creating fake accounts and again commenting that my eyes look like a racoon because of the dark circles. I hate her guts not because she got the good for nothing ex but because of what she represents - the feelingerang kerida who feels she is better than me when in fact she is not. After all, what kind of a human being are you if you feel happy and proud in commiting such an act, right? Fast forward to the present and I am now happily married to the love of my life and who again pops in but the kerida turned gf? My w@wie sisters and i will be going to the w@w anniversary party this March. Since we are getting acquainted with each other we started adding each other in friendster, multiply and ym. One w@wie sister, a dentist in Caloocan, brought back memories from the days since kerida is a dentist and from Caloocan also. Turns out that my hunch was correct, that the two are acquianted. Worse, if they are friends! Que horror, I dunno if I can stand being in the same place with a friend of that awful human being! After all, birds of the same feathers supposedly flock together, right?


*** Update on this post (March 11, 2009)

After numerous talks with the w@wie sis who knows her, it is very clear to me that the two are not friends. Thank God! I hate to be well, in hate, with a sister. Turns out she was just added by kerida turned gf to buff her friendlist. Whew!

...I will be enjoying this ------>

We could have bought VIP tickets if my mom didn't nag us about how expensive it is. Sabagay, the's P15,000 for the 3 of us. Oh well. I will be very happy to hear them play again this Saturday. At least that'll be a few hours of not thinking about the Colympics

And now they're down to 6. The participating companies, that is. I feel so dejected!
