seryoso na to!

// i have to get thinner before october 29, or else.... or else, return 0. hahaha
so starting this october, i'll make the gym my second home. hahaha 28 days of crash workout! let's see if i could hold on without ravaging their coffee maker. i'll set up a count-down. i must be religious on this.

wahahaha! but you knooow, i have a feeling i'm just gonna end up laughing at myself after this. wahaha i was never a fan of exercising, or sports in general, so i'm pretty much a weakling in terms of physical fitness. pero inspired ako! kasi... my mom bought me a red long gown i can use for her awards night (as her escort) and i love it! so i feel obligated to give the pretty gown justice by becoming thinner to suit it better. oo grabe, it's hard to fit gowns when you're fat.

mainstream teenage complex! bwahahaha sengihnampakgigi
// i have a cactus wallpaper, nakakawala ng stress!!!! :inis:


i feel bad for all the people who are still left stranded in their homes (not that it remained one), awaiting rescue. i feel bad that that the least i can do for them is pray, and maybe deliver some of my old clothes to mcdonald's (the nearest place collecting relief materials from here). listening to the news is way too depressing. the death toll has reached more than a hundred already, and PAGASA says there's another brewing storm bordering on the Philippine area of responsibility. we haven't even recovered yet!

i don't know why people are reacting badly about this. get used to it. it happens everytime. villar isn't the only politician guilty of indirectly soliciting votes through donations. i'm not saying this because i like manny villar or something. though the time spent printing and sticking out those texts could have been used to deliver the food much faster, bottom line is: he still helped.

God knows how much we idealize our politicians too much. no leader is righteous enough to sit on the presidential throne. between two evils (in our case, tons) , choose the lesser one. it really does take an evil to become president.

epic flood

hoy ondoy!

what an experience! i was supposed to blog about this yesterday but i got sleepy so all i managed to update was my twitter. hahaha sinisipon ako! and for some reason, i can't access my facebook homepage... i had to use a proxy site to open it. bugger! ano kayang meron? ano nanamang nagawa ko? hahaha

so yesterday...

i woke up and it was raining already. when i came to class, it rained harder and from there it only became worse. classes were suspended for the afternoon but their announcement came too late cos when we were out of the school gates, it was flooding already and there were no available means of transportation. in short, we were stranded! more than 5 hours pare! whew! grabeee it was the worst typhoon i've ever experienced, well, kasi nasa labas ako. hahaha

anyway. enjoy naman kasi i was with my friends. tambay lang somewhere... besides, EVERYONE was stranded. including the vehicles! kawawa naman grabe. it was so stupid of me to not bring a payong and a jacket, chka phone. pero keri lang. grabe ang lamig! perhaps the worst thing that happened to me was...hindi ko alam! wala naman siguro. aaaah, yung mga ipis na naglabasan sa kanal hahaha. pero hindi naman ako masyadong nainis e. mejo na-fascinate pa ko kasi it was my first time to witness an epic flood and a cockroach revolution up close! and besides, masaya naman mga kasama ko. chaka nakatulog naman ako kahit pano kaya hindi ako badtrip. yehey. so after more than 5 hours, tatlong yosi, lugaw with egg, at pancit canton... nakauwi rin! hooooray! :D :D

thank God cos hindi kami gaanong nasalanta. ano ba naman yung mababad yung bag ko sa ulan at muntik masira yung mp3 player ko na ibebenta ko pa sa ebay, kumpara kay Christine Reyes na sa bubong na nagpalipas ng ulan. dba? i still consider myself blessed. thank you God for protecting me and my family from harm. :)

no classes tomorrow until tuesday so that's great! no corpo attire yehey! :)

kamusta naman kayo?

tayong dalawa finale + survivor 2

// the finale was good! except for the last part where another david garcia appeared, i mean, what the fuck? so ano yon? is that indicative of a sequel? bad timing e. ang weird talaga! i cried so much when marlene begged ramon to give up. pati when ramon was shot, chaka when ramon apologized to dave at the jail. si ramon talaga ang lakas ng hatak e. o, sya na ipapalit ko kay ryan agoncillo. hehe. pero you know what, Tayong Dalawa is a very good series kasi the plot is original, the script isn't generic and the casting is awesome (esp. ramon! whew!). na-weirdohan lang tlga ko sa last part, pero sige, that's forgiveable. haha

// on survivor. ooh, so louie was voted out!!! sooo, giveaway na pala yung commercial nya sa mangyayari sa kanya. hahaha i never really liked him, chickboy daw?!?! wtf right?! ang ayoko na kanya, he thinks he's smart, that his strategies are working, and that he's strong when in fact, wala talaga syang na-manipulate. even charles? i mean, magaling lang makisama si charles at super bait to the point na muka syang underdog (not to mention, gay) pero louie? he never really earned anyone's trust in the camp. and sama pa ng dila nya! ang kapal ng muka nya.

i'm worrying for justine tuloy! louie might actually beat her on monday, and i hate to see that happen cos she's (for me, justine is a GIRL. oks?) been through a lot on isla purgatoryo chaka, ang gandang comeback nun pag naka-abot sa merge si justine! oh come on.

// i'm not feeling the weekend! monday to saturday classes are starting to bore me. aaaand i'm feeling the curse of my heels na! hahaha corpo attire on monday is something i'm not looking forward to, sana signal no.3 sa monday. whew, october na sana pls? bakit? kasi balik gym na ko sa october which is thursday next week, yaaaay!!! my last month at fitness first before i transfer the membership to my dad kasi wala na kong pambayad and hindi ako pumapayat! anyway, gym for me isn't about losing weight e...tumaba lang ako dun e. i'm more on the coffee, cabled tv, internet and sauna. wahaha

// everyday is a good day! amen!

april's full moon

nye. ngayon ko lang na-share!

mayon by the moon

i love this pic! super awesome scene.

moonlit sea

di sinasadyang pasmado ako but look at the effect naman! ang cute! haha


have i told you guys that i already know how to ride a bike? given that the road is all mine. nevertheless, marunong na ko! yehey! :P

isa pa, i can tolerate hot sauce and spicy noodles na rin! ang laking improvement. hahaha

uhh, wala lang.

awhile ago my jacket fell off the tricycle while moving pero narecover ko naman yehey kaso kadiriiii hinango ko pa sa putikan yon hahaha.
someone switched off the power source of the sockets in my room (and essentially the entire floor) so i can't charge the laptop and my phone and i can't turn on the aircon so i can't sleep hahahaha pero malamig nmn e. blah blah blah. that's why i'm at the basement right now. buti na lang ok dito. haha parallel circuits for the win!

gutom na gutom na gutom na ko! gusto ko ng pizza. hahahaha

omg, terai you're my savior!

roundhouse kick

// maybe i'm nearing that time of the month kaya ganito.
naiirita ako. sobrang naiirita akoooo!!!!! ~!@#$%^&*()~ mag-iisang buwan na kong iritang irita sa mga nangyayari.

aaaand! i hate this day so much! siguro kasi hindi ako nakatulog kaninang hapon. why do i have a feeling that everything's going to go downhill from now on? bad vibes!

// i started this day with a prayer because i dreamt of my lola last night. she was sleeping on my bed, smiling. e kamamatay lang nya so i thought it's her way of pagpaparamdam to me. hmm...

// alam mo dan, ewan ko sayo. ang paranoid mo. ngayon mo lang ba ko nakitang magtaray? get used to it. i'm a lethal moodswinger :P

// i just stole a filione book kanina, niloko ko pa yung guard. tipid 270 pesos. may sagot pa. binggo. :P

// Lord, Lord, sana October na. pleaaaaasee!!! o kaya naman November para mas masaya but i'm not really counting on it, so October na lang para mas malapit! oks? thanks.

// yesss! someone responded to my ebay ad. will bid goodbye to my mp3 player soon. hi, cash.


missing markers

// i was wondering why i couldn't see my old bookmarks (laminated anime cards) in my drawer so i took out a new one (my dad's expired alien ID) and started reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. so far so good! it's about a living boy who grew up in a graveyard under the custody of ghosts. kewl.

eventually i realized where my missing bookmarks are, they're still stuck in their own books! wahahaha 4 books pare! the resurrection file (parshall), like the flowing river (coelho), toxic bachelors (steel) and the pilgrimage (coelho). i have no idea when i will ever get back at them, right now i'm most interested with the graveyard book so hopefully i will finish with it.... because it's interesting and it's the one mika bought from san francisco. it's also AUTOGRAPHED you know! you can't imagine how much i had to contain my fangirl squeals when i saw an "autographed copy" sticker at the cover. hahhahhahhahhah so, you heard (err, read) me, i'll finish the book! sengihnampakgigisengihnampakgigisengihnampakgigisengihnampakgigi

// what? i'm sweet? that's a first! i never really thought of myself that way, i guess i'm not sweet at all. i'm more 'concerned' than 'sweet', really. and there are ants creeping out of this laptop (which is better than seeing ants creep INTO it, you know, if ants are coming in then there's probably a freaking nest inside). fucking alarming! that was random, sorry, but it scares me that it might kill Pa-Q (that's how we call this laptop), i can't afford to lose ANOTHER laptop (this isn't even mine). fffffffffff.

ETA: i want a 14inch dell inspiron something something laptop. YUNG RED!!!

// you. you! i hate it when you say you know what i'm thinking whenever i'm in a trance.why do you assume a lot of things whenever i mention someone's name, at least twice??? i'm not impressed with your mind reading skills. i don't even talk about what's in my head (i usually just blog about it), so don't go assuming i'd talk to you... cos even if you were right about what i'm thinking, i'd never ever consult you about anyyyyythiiiiing. stop trying to impress me, i don't need your help. i'm lagging behind my favorite power siestas because of you. i hate getting bugged off by people when i'm sleeping, or when i want to sleep, or when i feel sleepy. you're not someone i'd trade my afternoon naps with. enough said xpastixpastixpastixpastixpasti

// oks. time to do my homework.

ugly braggarts

the dumbest people i know are those who know it all. - malcolm forbes

if i could have Ryuuk's eyes (from Death Note) and modify it, instead of seeing the lifespans of people i meet, i'd like to see their IQ and EQ levels. there's so much telling with those numbers.

braggarts must suffer eternal damnation. napaka-babaw. napaka-yabang. nakaka-baba ng respeto. egoistic shit. you don't get to look smarter by bragging, what did you think?

i suddenly miss being with people who carry their IQs sensibly.

pizza day!

// during the tribal council -- survivor philippines palau
tara: ...you're weaker than i do (upon voting for troy)...

and she claims to be a fucking english tutor? have some shame and give the language some justice mare!

// wahahah! may nakita ako! ETO!!!
an entry i made two years ago, back when i was still an applicant sa org. pansinin nyo yung drawing kong bongga... i have a tendency to draw my crushes talaga e. sorinaman!

the familiarity is killing me. O_O

// awhile ago, naloko kami ni chamel. akala namin trabaho, encoder, as she promised, yun pala it's a lie just to get us to attend their orientation. NETWORKING pala. and you know how unreliable networking corps are. they lure people into a pyramid marketing scheme and offer commissions by recruiting downlines. why is this bad? because i've heard of this already! the whole multi-level marketing scam? hahaha

and you know, an employer who tolerates having his subordinates LIE just to grow his company is already a big turn-off. imagine, this company is populated by teenagers! as in 16, 17, 18! they all earn, yeah, cool but i don't think the environment will be good for me. the way things go inside is too demoralizing.

ewan ko. parang the first thing you'll have to do to earn is to LIE. ayoko naman ng ganun. :( and you'll have to continue doing it kasi if you don't recruit and purchase, you won't earn.

i hate it when someone tries to read me and claims to know what's going on in my head. lalo na kung ayoko dun sa tao. tapos biglang tama pa sya. tae.

low IQ, high EQ.

absolute zero crap

on the phases of matter.

solid, liquid, gas, plasma... i bet the next phases coined aren't naturally occurring anymore. in short, scientists are synthesizing the discovery of phase changes inside the laboratory. then i read about the bose-einstein condensate (BEC), a state near absolute zero which is 0 kelvin or -273.15 degrees celsius.

i learned about condensates 2 years ago, if i remember correctly they're supercooled fluids that behave like gases because they flow out of their containers.

anyway, i watched a disaster movie before which mentioned the possibility of stopping time by reaching absolute 0. during that time it made sense to me cos absolute zero would freeze even the most hyperactive and unstable atomic vibrations, essentially freezing EVERYTHING. and when everything stops on an atomic level, time stops as well.

of course it's naturally impossible to achieve it, unless it's God's new way of bringing armageddon next to the great flood . however, i was thinking, if you could create an absolute 0 environment inside a vacuum, then revert it to normal temperature (or just increase it, doesn't necessarily have to be normal), you'd probably tamper that container's sense of time. will it lead to the creation of a new dimension? a new time and space? a whole new world world?

wahahaha ewan. disaster movies are compelling noh? except that they exaggerate science more that it already is. nakakaloko tuloy.

ah wala lang, na-curious ako.

game ako sa 2012!

rest in peace, mamay :)

you died happily so there's no point in seeing exaggerated wailing at your wake, ok? oks! i love you. sige may, papunta na kami dyan! i mean, sa bicol! hahaha

enrolled na ko! 19 units! :\

bongga, monday to saturday! pero feeling ko kulang parin. i still have a lot of vacant afternoons. homaygad, what do i do???? lalo na dun sa 1130-130 break ko every wednesday. henako.

mamay! anong gagawin ko? hahaha
