WhAts KiPin’ mE sAnE?!

Filed under: Trip Ko! — by dangas @ 7:59 pm


      I’ve been thinking of posting serious stuff since I think I never posted one but unfortunately [or maybe as usual is more appropriate  🙂  ] I  can’t think of any… So here is what I have in mind about the things that are keeping me on track….

  • Having a wake up call of 7:35 AM. Yahoo! For some pips this might be early still but for someone who used to waking up at six in the morning on weekdays like me… It really is a Yahoo!! 🙂  Though I still feel sleepy sometimes and have to leave the office early evening… Lucky me, its less traffic, less people in the train stations, less stress…  so Yahoo! 🙂
  • Pinoy Big Brother 2. I never get to see the past seasons and I wasn’t interested either. But this time I’m having fun watching the show… I even check the show’s site on the net to get the latest updates about the housemates 🙂 and try to give clues on what’s next to be shown on tv to the people at home [just clues… I dont want to be a spoiler… slight lang 😛 ]. I used to love watching Am Idol too… but after my ala-BMac bet Jared [uber gorgeous] was voted out 2 weeks ago, I started not to care about the show…
  • Dumplings. Since I got into a new project with  a new working hours sched, I stay in the office until early evening these days and have to eat dinner most of the time while at work. I know dumplings exist but I only eat siomai before 😛 But now I discovered more varieties of wantons and dumplings at our food gallery… Yum! Yum!
  • Holy Eggs. Interesting huh?! My college friend, Memem, introduced us to offering eggs to St.Clare on its Monastery at Katipunan. Its something like doing a novena at Baclaran church. We used to go there during college days before exams and project defense to ask for guidance or just going there to say our gratitude for a fruitful semester [pasado 🙂 ] and for other personal things as well. Since then, I’ve been visiting the Monastery at least once a month and offering eggs to keep my spiritual life intact. Cool place! Pretty church… Quiet moments to think things over… [dapat tahimik kc may mga mongha somewhere 🙂 ] If you’re interested on visiting the place its located along Katipunan, few steps away from the train station… Btw, Thanks Memem 😛
  • Summer Time. I started my summer early by spending time along the Batangas shore last January and Im so looking forward for more. My project is going to White Rock at Subic by May. And what’s greater than spending days home in the province[we’re going next week]. I can stay by the sea all I want 😛 … Fresh air… Cool greens… Missed friends… Lovely relatives… Good times… and more…
  • Good laughs. I’ve been sharing good laughs with my cubemates Missy and KG lately 😛 We make up things to laugh at any time of the day to lighten the mood at work and keep us sane and awake at noon as well 🙂  Want a sample?! Closing your invisible window/door/blinds when your being teased or played at… [yeah! you won’t get it unless you’re us. haha ] People around us are starting to notice how weird the three of us can be laughing at ourselves and sometimes talking the way the three of us can understand… 😛
  • Someone. Ayeee! 🙂 Knowing that at the end of the day my bestfriend cares for me much makes me feels good no matter how bad my day went. It just amazing how a single text message can make you 🙂 I can be feeling pissed or worried on something and telling him about it makes me calm. Its really a good thing to have someone who knows you very well and knows how to handle  you when you think you can’t do it yourself. Gives you the other side of how you see things to make your understanding better… Thanks Kulit!  🙂 [as if he reads this…]

So there… These are the things that keeps me fine and feel “I belong” everyday… 🙂

What this blog brought me…

New Friend 🙂

     A month ago someone I don’t know invited me to his Friendster list… I don’t usually add a stranger into my account… Most of the time I would send them a message first asking for how they come to know me… But when I explored his account I found out that he was a JVP volunteer and having such amazement in such world [if you have read my previous about this wonderful foundation 🙂 ] I just accepted his invitation and added him on my list. I sent him a message still asking why he invited me. Turned out that he had read my posts regarding my wild dreams of being a JVP 😛 … Yes! I just  made a new friend through blogging… Isn’t it great?! 🙂

    By the way, he’s Benj of Batch 26 and was assigned in Borongan, Samar… In anyway you’ve come to visit my blog again… I’m thankful to have met you 🙂 You’ve become an additional hope in me that someday, I’ll be brave as you to do it and wouldn’t mind being called “crazy” for doing so 😛

Lovely Comments 🙂

     Only my close friends from college know about my blog so everytime I have entries in my comment box, all of them are kulit comments from people I grew up with from Uni.

     Two weeks ago, I opened my page and found a funny comment from a stranger regarding my post on most commonly used greetings which I translated to Bisaya [with the best of my rough Bisaya skills, oh yeah! I accept that fact 🙂 ] It was Part 1 since I planned to share more yet as of the moment it never had additional parts… hehe… Maybe soon 🙂  The comment was a copied version of the entire translation part of that post with the bisaya translation entirely edited… hahaha 😛 

     Akalain nyo un?! Lahat talaga 🙂  Looking through the comment, the translation was more of a formal way of saying the greetings compared to the way I did it [un ang tingin ko 🙂  ] Living on different islands across the Visayas region might have caused it as well… For even if we all speak Bisaya there, differences are still possible because of the distant locations [just how different people from Metro Manila and Batangas speak Tagalog 🙂 ]…

    I tried to check the commentor’s [tama ba?! hehe] homepage but I can’t seem to find a way to get to know the person[d ako bitter 🙂 ] That’s why I just replied on the comment and said thanks  for doing it for it’s nice to know that someone is reading my blog especially someone I don’t know… and I did learn from it too… It helped me furnish [naks!] my bisaya tongue somehow… 🙂

   Hopefully, I’ll be able to add more post regarding translation since a friend once asked me for the second part [O diba, may nagbabasa nito pare 😛 ]..

Others: friday out 

     My team went to see a movie last Friday… 300… Since I’m with a team for a client from France, we have to be in the office until early evening to mend the different time zones. After dinner which was few minutes after 8, we went to Ayala mall to watch… It wasn’t my type of flick… though Kulit loved it… The movie was done past 11 and it was too late for me… I missed the train so I took the bus home which was scary 😦

     I had fun though… She and I made the movie funny 😛

Un lang… Bow!

Weeks more and its Leyte here we come 🙂

Where Have I been

Filed under: > Inc.,Journey,Just Thinking...,Mine Oh Mine! — by dangas @ 11:56 am

     Its been a month since my last post… And it made me think where have I been… 🙂

     Nothing really so interesting… Yet things have been so good and fun…

Girl Bibo:

     I’ve been more of an active person this past few weeks… I attended a cooking class with Missy two weeks ago… I can proudly proclaim… I can make my own Cheesecake dude 😛 It was great! A bonding moment with Missy plus we got to make new friends and new sweets as well… 🙂

    I’m your sporty girl! 😛  I never imagined I can do it.. I was never interested in anything sporty aside from watching it especially if it has something to do with a ball… I’m scared to get hurt! haha… But last saturday… I spent 20 minutes running non-stop in a futsal game. Yes! you read it right… I played indoor football… And man! I loved it… I’ve never sweat and enjoyed like that for a long time.. Maybe I’d love to do more… 🙂 Bonus, I made friends too… Life is amazing!

Summer is my thing:

      My team started the summer right… And spent 2 days by the sea as early as last month… We went to La Luz Resort in San Juan, Batangas… It was great… The road trip, the countryside (naks!), the good food, the games… I did kayak too… Wow! The water was really made me feel good… and made me realized how blessed I am… It was also a weekend I am thankful for I got to be closer with my teammates… 😛 Did I mention, I had a bad stomach on the last day?! Bad drinking water… hahaha…. I will never forget that getaway…

 New team:

     I am with the new team now…New team for France… Its the same people though… Thanks goodness it is… My teammates are really great and I want to have them still… It makes me enjoy work at the same time… Hope things will do well like before… Go Team!

Things to look forward:

    My Ma Liling with her hubby is coming home from London by the end of the month and we’re all flying home to Leyte! Yahoo 😛   I never thought I can spend time in the province my whole family for free… and visit Papa too…

    Hope we’ll have a great time… And my Mama to unwind as well…

     I’ll post updates about it the coming days…

So far… That’s about it… 🙂

Interesting weeks… And thanks I had fun wherever I have been… 😛
