More Than a Year Later [02 May 2012|08:25pm]
Just realized that I have not updated my blog for more than a year now. The longest since I've opened it. Noticed that not a lot of peeps are still updating their blogs. I guess everyone's on Twitter and Facebook nowadays :)

Serendipity [09 Jan 2011|03:43pm]
[ mood | amused ]

"Jonathan Trager, prominent television producer for ESPN, died last night from complications of losing his soul mate and his fiancee. He was 35 years old. Soft-spoken and obsessive, Trager never looked the part of a hopeless romantic. But, in the final days of his life, he revealed an unknown side of his psyche. This hidden quasi-Jungian persona surfaced during the Agatha Christie-like pursuit of his long reputed soul mate, a woman whom he only spent a few precious hours with. Sadly, the protracted search ended late Saturday night in complete and utter failure. Yet even in certain defeat, the courageous Trager secretly clung to the belief that life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. Uh-uh. But rather, it's a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan. Asked about the loss of his dear friend, Dean Kansky, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and executive editor of the New York Times, described Jonathan as a changed man in the last days of his life. "Things were clearer for him," Kansky noted. Ultimately Jonathan concluded that if we are to live life in harmony with the universe, we must all possess a powerful faith in what the ancients used to call "fatum", what we currently refer to as DESTINY".

Bound for Sydney [20 May 2010|11:53pm]
[ mood | tired ]

After more than a month's delay, I'm finally travelling to Sydney this weekend for 3 weeks to see my boss. I haven't really been able to prepare much since the past 3 weeks have been crazy in terms of work load at the office. The only tourist attraction there which am familiar with is the Sydney Opera House. I've checked out the vicinity of the Accenture office there and it's not in the city proper. I'll have to learn how to ride the tram/train.

If you know any places which are worth visiting in SYD, pls. let me know :)

The Surprise Visit at the Office Part II :) [28 Apr 2010|11:47pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

I have always thought that the world conspired to keep us apart. At least, that's what we've experienced for the past 5 years as best friends. The last straw being the Ondoy incident which prevented me from attending her wedding last November in India.

Yesterday was an exception :) It was surreal. The princess was at the reception around 1:30. Was it really her or was I just hallucinating? I still remember vividly how our conversation on the phone ended when she boarded the plane to Canada last January. I never really knew when I was going to have a chance to see her again. The last time we met in person was when she left Sept 2009 for her wedding preparations. Of course, I immediately gave her a big hug :)

I was suppose to be in Sydney by now. April 12 was the first target date. Moved to April 25 and then May 2. Due to the new process in relation to acquiring a visa, we experienced some delays. Hence, am still in Pinas and the new dates are yet to be confirmed. In retrospect, I felt that it was the first time the odds were on our side. As the old cliche goes, lady luck was smiling at us that afternoon. She didn't inform me that she was already in the Philippines since April 14. The reason being that she wanted to pay a little surprise visit :) What made me smile was the effort she put into the visit which made it really special. She forgot where my office was located and had to look for it. Not something she would really do on a normal day :D That's why she's the Princess if you know what I mean!

I immediately filed a VL this Friday so we could spend time. As always, I am crossing my fingers that it'll push through.

What can I say? I would never exchange the surprise visit even for a billion dollars. I love my best bud :)

Jogging Anyone? [14 Apr 2010|12:00am]
[ mood | accomplished ]


Ayala Triangle Park, Makati


With the advent of fun runs, triathlons, iron man events here in the Philippines, I finally took the initiative to schedule a jogging session every Tuesday and Thursday of the week with the rest of my teammates at the office(not that I intend to join one). It was before the Ondoy incident last September since I've been in the gym so I decided to try and get back in shape. Today was our first session and we were caught by surprise. The Ayala Triangle Park was jampacked with a lot of joggers at around 7:30 PM. I knew it was one of the 'in' thing nowadays. Just didn't realize that a lot has jumped on the bandwagon. At any rate, looking forward to the next one :-)

Other Venues for Jogging:
1) Greenhills w/c is near home.
2) Boni Highway Street @ The Fort

P.S. 3 rounds ain't bad for starters like me ;)

Two Weeks to D-Day [08 Nov 2009|10:56pm]
[ mood | blank ]

Iphone rang with an unknown number registered on the LCD screen...
Caller: Bentot! Where are you? So are you coming?

When she left before the Ondoy incident, I never asked for an answer but Perhaps God wanted to spare me from it all along.

Julianne Potter: Michael... I love you. I've loved you for nine years, I've just been too arrogant and scared to realize it, and... well, now I'm just scared.

She felt sad but understood everything.
Best Friend: Let's talk over Skype. I'll give you a miss call when I'm online. Manila is 3 hours ahead of India.

Julianne Potter: If he were feeling what I'm feeling then he would know how it feels.

Finally got the seahorse from Hobbes & Landes. It's so cute!

Unfinished Business [12 Sep 2009|11:10pm]
[ mood | happy ]

After more than a year and a half, the Princess and I are going back to Hobbes to start where we left of. Hopefully we can finish it in a few hours(as always, time is gold when we meet up). We thought that the seahorse and teapot set were gone 'coz the shop donates unclaimed items after 6 months. If not for the Princess' demands(literally speaking), the staff wouldn't have ransacked the cabinets where unclaimed items were wrapped in newspaper. For some reason, our paintings were under the name of Rico??? (Does anyone know who he is???)

In other news, she'll be heading back home next Saturday. After 5 years, it all comes to this...I will definitely miss the best friend :'-(

Mr. Speaker, Senator Thurmond, Distinguished members of Congress.

Three years ago I left America in grief, to bury my husband Ninoy Aquino. I thought I had left it also, to lay to rest his restless dream of Philippine freedom. Today, I have returned as the President of a free people.

18 Roses [28 Jun 2009|11:40pm]
[ mood | amused ]

I've missed the dance practice for the past 2 weeks yet I was the 9th guy to give my cousin a rose last Saturday night during her debut. I had my reasons but I guess it was destined to be. In retrospect, I felt guilty declining the offer 2 weeks ago. Perhaps she was cursing me since she had difficulties the past months or so recruiting guys for the event. When it was my turn to dance with her, I asked her and she said, "hindi, kasi nandito ka naman with me eh." That gave me a big sigh of relief :)

P.S. My cousin has a pretty classmate from La Salle(of course! My Alma Mater :]) who lit one of the 18 candles and gave a speech. My sisters said, "O ayan te, ligawan mo na lang. Pa kai xiao(arrange in chinese) ka". I told 'em...I wish I was still in college ;) I miss those days! Sayang!

What Time will Iphone OS 3.0 be Available Today? [18 Jun 2009|12:46am]
[ mood | anxious ]

I'm pretty sure that majority of iPhone owners in PI are still awake and waiting impatiently for the OS 3.0 update to be available. A thread in Philmug, a Mac users group based in PI, mentioned that it will be available 10AM Cupertino time(June 17) which is around 1AM in Manila(June 18).

I am looking forward to the A2DP stereo bluetooth support of the new firmware. Will be hunting for a good headset this coming weekend :)

14 mins to go! Can't wait!

Have You Ever... [14 May 2009|12:45am]
[ mood | happy ]

...thought of hugging someone but couldn't do so 'coz you felt embarassed 'bout it?

When the elevator stopped on the 4th floor and opened, someone was leaning by the door. Her hands crossed with that familiar "mataray" look :) A few minutes earlier, I had that strong urge to just run towards her and give her a big hug. That look made me think twice though hehe. The last time we saw each other was 3 weeks ago but it felt like years had passed. Been busy with work but I promised the princess that I will visit her yesterday by hook or by crook. The good thing was that the "mataray" look only lasted a few seconds and she said "we haven't seen each other in a long time ano?" and then initiated the hug :D Hehe, na miss din pala ako. It was sweet of her to wait for me before eating dinner. Her cooking lesson yesterday was on Greek and Turkish cuisine. In hindsight, 'twas the first time I ate something that she cooked! It was deeelicious! It's a pity that I missed last week's Indian cuisine and last last week's asian cuisine. At any rate, I hope to visit her in the remaining 2 sessions.

P.S. After spending time with the princess yesterday, the stress that had accumulated over the past weeks at work was gone :) Am also looking forward to meet Kuzy soon. That's the name of her dog!

After 10 Years... [04 May 2009|12:50am]
[ mood | blank ]

I've finally bought myself a new phone two weeks ago...

Photobucket
Iphone 3G


The last phone I bought was a Nokia 6210 which had long retired(back in 2007). Immediately, I bought a SwitchEasy silicone case at Powermac, Greenbelt 3. The black case had a red home button which was kinda off for me. So I opted for the cool blue look.

Current Wallpaper(Pic with best bud @ Prince of Jaipur, Fort) :D


I am also on the lookout for a bluetooth headset that's compatible with the Iphone 3g. Heard that some can only receive calls but can't play mp3s. I prefer one that can do both.

I have also been on the hunt for free apps at the iTunes store the past week. Guess what I found out? LJ has one :)


Livejournal App at the iTunes Store


I am also currently tempted to "JailBreak" this gizmo but doing so invalidates Globe's warranty. By doing so, one can install third party softwares on the Iphone.

In other news, this was the photo of the day...

This left hook knocked the lights out of Ricky Hatton


Pacman is on track to cement his legacy as one of the all time greats. If the fight against Miguel Cotto at the Welterweight division being eyed at the end of the year pushes through, he will be gunning for a record 7 division world title. Currently, he is tied with Oscar De La Hoya with 6.

Trying to Get in Shape Again! [16 Apr 2009|11:16pm]
[ mood | tired ]

It has been ages since I last hit the gym. After office, I finally tried out Accenture's gym at the head office in Makati Stock Exchange which is just a few minutes walk from where I'm based. Naturally, I was experiencing some difficulties during my third set of reps. Overall though, I think it was a good workout.

Only complaint is that due to recent cost cutting measures, the airconditioner of all buildings have been turned off at an earlier time. Unfortunately, including the gym. I think I got a bit suffocated so I had to stop earlier and had to breath some fresh air outside the building.

Some say the company offers better facilities at Cybergate but that's quite far from Makati and I only have time after office.

P.S. I miss the days during my grad days where I had time to visit our own gym and workout for free. Plus, seeing Joyce Jimenez hit the mits was enough to wake me up every morning ;)
