Yet again, a new-found set of McDonald’s ads. How cool are these?
I love mornings.
I just want to share with you what I read this morning: If you have a tendency to despair over lost opportunities or if you worry about the future, ask yourself this question: “What is right in front of me?” In other words, what circumstances and relationships are currently available to you? This question can get your focus off a past regret or a scary future and back to what God...
Nothing beats a fresh glass of shake in a scorching afternoon. What’s the catch? I sipped on (are you ready?) WHEATGRASS SHAKE! I know, i know. It’s the most interesting shake ever made. I love trying out strange concoctions. Looking at the menu, the wheatgrass shake looked promising- and it was, surprisingly. It didn’t taste like grass like one would imagine, it had a tad of...
Look what if found!
Out of curiosity, I decided to go over my old mailing address and found this email I sent to Saz, which was over 2 years ago. March 18, 2009, specifically. ______ Hello Mr. Armand Sazon, This is Cyril Belarmino, incoming Externals Officer of CADs. Roanna has forwarded me your email on the ESEA Conference hosted by our very own English Department. Regarding her request, I will be the one...
So let’s start off with my long wavy hair with side-swept bangs back in high school onto my semi-straight, layered one in college. I used to just twirl my hair so it would easily drape down in nice, natural and effortless waves..not too curly since my hair weight would still straighten out the initial curl- I even used a pencil to make the waves stay for longer periods. Luckily then, I...
Random Baby Facts
It’s odd how I forget things so easily at the age of 23, and yet remember my childhood memories so vividly. Tonight, let me throw out some baby facts, as mom would happily retell: 1. They brought me to the doctor ‘cos I didn’t want to sleep. Mom said whenever I felt sleepy, I would open my eyes big enough to keep myself from dozing off. 2. I had really thick hair, as...
Kada on Patty Laurel's Blog! →
I am a fan of a former schoolmate, pre-school teacher, celebrity Patty Laurel. It’s just incredible to see Kada be featured in her blog. :)
Because I’m swarmed with work, a little break from the routine helps. Blogging non-sense tops the charts for now. I’m crazy like that. Happy Friday from my alter-ego’s. :P
Ever heard of Black Water? This morning, my partner Pek showed me this product and I found it pretty interesting. The other day, Saz paid me a surprise visit and he gave me a pack of gummy candies. (NOM NOM NOM!) I was just thinking how people, especially children, came to like gummy worms. I mean.. just imagine a real worm swarmed with soil! To actually make a product out of a slimy...

An Excerpt: On Creativity & Fitness
Saw this article about the famous Japanese writer and a personal favorite of mine for his incomparable talent for words, Haruki Murakami and his “affair” with exercise and fitness. Pretty interesting read. __ “When I’m in writing mode for a novel, I get up at 4:00 a.m. and work for five to six hours. In the afternoon, I run for ten kilometers or swim for fifteen hundred...
No, I am not getting married.. yet. I’m just in search of some ”super/mega/ultra”-vacation destinations..for future use. Hahaha. But seriously-this, remains to be a dream. ‘Di naman masama mangarap diba? I’ve always wanted to go to Santorini, Greece but on the flipside, this place tucked away in the island of Maldives completely won my heart. I love the beach and...

This well-written blog entry by one of my inspiring friends, Isa, just kept me on the edge of my seat. I felt tears welling up reading this and one thing came to mind: I already met my Mr.Right, my Nice Guy. A dose of reassurance, indeed. Thank you, Lord, for this reminder. P.S. Nic, if you’re reading this, you are worth it and you’ll soon find your Nice Guy in God’s time....
Ogling over these.
Jill Stuart’s pieces are so cooling in the eyes, Rodarte’s print on prints ensemble, the purple charm which i cannot pull off, the 7o’s-inspired dresses w/fringe accents, J Crew’s well-tailored pants and semi-adrogynous pieces i want for work. Clothesgasm.
What's good in good morning?
I was never fond of listening to AM radio until I started working. Since I’ve been hitching a ride with my dad to and from the office, I had no choice but to succumb to his usual ways- one of which is listening to AM radio in the morning. And so that’s when I began disliking the egotistical Noli De Castro aka “Kabayan” for his pessimism and sarcastic blurts of...
A year and a half after
..I visited what used to be my second home. After a string of excruciating nights, I decided to postpone my brunch date today with my blockmate Sab at Mom and Tina’s Katipunan and headed to my dentist. Had my teeth checked ‘cos I was feeling painful throbbing since Thursday night and it was becoming unbearable. It’s tough having an embarrassingly low tolerance for tooth pain,...

Sales & Marketing + International Marketing + Network Distribution Department So this is my second family. These are the people I see five (even six) times a week. For about a year and four months, I’ve been starting and ending my day with them. It’s been awesome. ___ Sometimes, it’s the people in the workplace that make us stay. No matter how stressful it is at work, it...

Wear It Forward Twenty shirts, one life KADA Clothing believes in simple ideas. So we founded our company on one simple but powerful model: for every 20 shirts we sell, we will send one child to preschool. That’s it. There’s no catch. Every shirt you buy is one step to improve the life of a child in need. KADA believes that people are always willing to effect change. They just need...
Time flies when you're having fun.
So last week we went to the city of Baguio. This place is one of my favorite local places mainly because of the relatively colder weather compared to practically all cities in the country. I was with officemates this time, and we stayed at Europa- a condominium well-known in the 80’s. It was my officemate’s ancenstral resthouse, which made the trip cheaper ‘cos we didnt have to...

I dislike failure, I don’t feel good about failing. I just dont wanna be “okay”, I dont want to follow the herd. I just wanna be better, i want to be the best. But right now, everything’s in mediocrity. (It’s the first day of the week and I’m feeling shitty)
My immediate boss took a paternity leave and he’ll be gone until next week. The Department’s left with me and my partner Pek, and I’m quite left with a tough challenge to beat. Right now, we’re pioneering Corporate Sales- another avenue for selling real estate properties. It’s an alternative channel, which is why our department’s handling it. Well, upon...

The Daily Wonder: For Now →
patriciamalay: I had recently found renewed joy in my friendships. Both old and new. In my fight against isolationism, the people I reached out to didn’t disappoint (but God’s always looking out for me like that.) One of the girls I’ve had the pleasure of meeting recently is Isa. How we met deserves another…
