Going Back To Writing And Music...

I have really been very busy the past 4 months. To tell you the truth, I wasn't inspired to write on any of my blogs anymore. I get caught up with a lot of things in my life that writing was not a priority anymore. Not only that, I set music aside as well - the thing I'm most passionate about.

I really don't know when I'll be back into doing a lot of writing. But I will never shut this blog down. Nor will I stop being passionate about music. I guess I have to go bring myself back into what I love doing because maybe I might find myself inspired again. I guess I'm just getting old? What a lame excuse.

Well, at least I'm back. I'll try to get back into record guitars or posting some of my music videos online again very soon. I want to be happy again. I guess I just have to really figure out what I want to do with my life right now. I'm just in the middle of indecision and I'll post something about it some other time.

Believe me, I'm here now.

The Slowest Train In The World


Riding the MRT (Manila Rail Transit) has been a pain lately. Instead of getting a ride home for only 15 minutes, now it would take me to almost an hour when there's no traffic along EDSA at around 5 o'clock in the morning. If I'm not only thinking about the dangers of going home on a bus in the wee hour of the morning, I am so tempted to change my mode of transportation to get home after work. Sigh.

According to the news, the trains are dealing with technical issues like their computers not getting any signal from the trains. When will they be able to fix this? Not only that, during rush hour, the queue on each train stations get really long. I pity those who are on those queue. It's a good thing that they limit the number of people on the platforms on each stations. But, duh! It takes hours for those people on queue to have their chance to be on the train because it takes a while for the train to get to the stations. This is such a dilemma.

I hope they'd be able to fix the problem really soon. I don't want to be riding the slowest train in the world anymore!

I'm Back And About! He Healed Me!

I have been sick for days. I had to endure the painful headache and not take medicines (pain relievers and paracetamols) because I'm allergic to them. I can't go to the hospital because I'm too weak I just slept my sickness off and of course, prayed to God that he will heal me. Guess what? He did! :)

That being said, I assure you all that I'm back and about! I'm well and ready to go back to business. Although I have already reported back to work last Monday. I am that workaholic. LOL!

Anyway, being sick sucks. I hope I won't have to go through that anymore.

OOTC Vacay?

Some of my colleagues just came from vacation in Cambodia. I'm not really "chummy chums" with them so I didn't get any pasalubong or souvenir gifts from any of them. If I am friends with one, I'd ask him or her to get me promotional travel mugs. Unfortunately, I'm not.

I feel a bit jealous about how these guys get to travel in and out of the country. My company must have been paying them good salary that's why they're able to do that. Anyway, most of them are working in the company for more than 5 years now. I bet they've got really good pay this time.

I want to travel outside the country in the future, too. I should be working very hard for that dream vacation now. :)

It's A Spring Forward Monday!


Daylight Saving Time in the United States began 2 o' clock in the morning yesterday. So I call this day - the Spring Forward Monday! :)

As an employee for an American company, I am going to work 1 hour early today until November. To some, DST is a bit of a hassle because of getting up an hour early. For me, it actually doesn't matter. My early schedule which began a month ago already sucks. And I can't do anything about it since the new schedule means bigger opportunity for me at work. DST is a bit of an advantage for me because I get home early from today onward.

So... Spring Forward it is!

My Sleep Dilemma

Sleeping can be difficult sometimes especially for an employee like myself who work nights. I don't have insomnia but sometimes there are factors that keeps me awake during the day.

  • Too exhausted to sleep. When I'm too exhausted to sleep, my mind is still too busy even if the lights are already switched off in my room. No matter how I tried to get some sleep, I just can't. Forcing myself to continue pretending to be asleep eventually works, ironically.
  • Messy apartment. Sometimes I have to force myself to cleanup because knowing that my apartment is that messy and dirty doesn't make me feel at ease at all.
  • Noisy environment. Since it's day time, one of my neighbors love to brag about how his behringer inuke nu1000 sounds like in the whole neighborhood. And I have to endure the pain of being awake the whole day.
  • Tons of work to do. Well, it has to do with me not able to manage my time that well. I tend to do things on the last minute which I'm aware it's something I have to change.
My work starts early tonight. I'm exhausted yet fulfilled about being able to finish all the chores before I hit the sack. My apartment is as spic as span as it could be and so far the neighborhood is peaceful. Now I can finally get some needed sleep! Good day, everyone! :)

Why is Monday the busiest day of the week?

image from google.com

Monday is the busiest day of my week because I pretty much do everything (e.g. household chores, online chores, some personal errands, exercise if there's still time to do so) before I begin my first night at work. Sometimes, I don't have time to sleep anymore and get to the office almost half awake . I work nights so my Monday basically ends Tuesday morning and I'm already cranked up and just wanted to get home and get plenty of sleep.
You might ask what I do with my weekends when I am supposed to actually do the household chores during those days. Well, the whole day of Saturday and first half of Sunday is the only times of the week that I get to do my obligations and some of my duties at our church locale. After that, I'd doze off to sleep and wake up very early on Monday mornings. :)

I don't manage my time fairly well. I admit that. It's something I need to work on especially now that my shift at work begins 3 hours earlier than my previous schedule. I have to find a way to do all the things I needed to accomplish so that I don't get myself exhausted on Mondays. I don't want to be cranky at work and end up not doing my job well because I too sleepy. I have to do something about this.

Hence, I'm planning to make a schedule this week and see if works. I have to make this work. No more sleeping by the hours on weekdays when I can finish some online and household chores before hitting the sack! I need to discipline myself or else it will just go back to manic Mondays. I can do this! I won't make next Monday the busiest day of the week anymore! :)

Saving For The Love Of Gadgets

So my boyfriend and I were strolling the mall one late afternoon. He bought a battery for his phone and he brought me with him because we haven't gone to the mall together for a while. Aside from not wanting to splurge our money because we needed to save for something I want to have for my birthday, both of us are really not the type to frequent the mall. There are just a lot of more important things to do and church activities that we needed to attend to the past few months.

After paying for the phone battery, we decided to check out some of the gadgets at the stores. How I wish I could purchase just whatever I want from those stores. LOL! That was what I hate about the mall. It always make you want to buy things that are really not necessary for the time being. Maybe not having enough money on my pocket helped me not waste some of my savings, ya? 

Before moving on to the camera store, we passed by the music store and saw a really nice electric guitar. I have always dreamed of owning one which I can use on a tc helicon at Guitar Center. But just like what I did with the gadgets on the previous stores, I turned my back on it and headed to the camera store. 

There I was able to learn more about the DSLR camera that I'm planning to buy before my birthday. I have always wanted to own one and I'm positive that I'll be able to get my hands on one of them pretty soon. I just needed to work hard to save for it and be really patient.

After I'm able to purchase that dream DSLR camera, I think I'm ready to set my eyes on that electric guitar and a really good phone or tablet. :)

Globe Telecom Under Maintenance - Sucks!

I have been waiting for Globe Telecom to make my landline and internet up and running again but to no avail. It's the 3rd day already yet my phone still isn't working. Sigh.

Then I realized I have a Sun Broadband (a competing Telecom) stick which is kept in my drawer. I thought this broadband stick doesn't work here in my room. But voila! It does work! And it's my way of keeping online right. The problem is, this broadband stick has poor signal. I still prefer the Globe broadband.

 I hope Globe is going to get my service back and running later today. I have already called customer service and was told that they're having system maintenance and that they're sorry for the inconvenience. I really hope and pray it won't be a week of no Globe internet service. Or else I'll be doomed. :D

Bringing Back The Healthy ME!



I'm tired of hearing people call me FAT! :D I just couldn't help myself indulge in the goodness of food! There's always a part of me that wanted to enjoy life and savor each and every delicacy that came my way. LOL!

I am fully aware that I have gained weight. My problems about gaining weight are: growing flabs on my belly and back (actually it's all over my body), the double chin, the allergies that I didn't have when I was younger, getting lazier each day and most of all, my dresses won't fit anymore. My weight is becoming more of a problem.

That's why I finally made the first BIG step to bringing back the healthy and pretty and sexy ME! LOL!

I enrolled myself in a GYM near the office today and did my first work out for this year! Congratulations to me! Since I once again spent money just to lose weight, I'm sure that I will make the most of the gym facilities. I really hope that this year's working out will help eliminate my allergies. I really feel like I got a lot of toxins in my body and I have to get rid of them. And it's happening from this day forward! Ajah! Haha!

I am so excited about going back to this journey to health and wellness! Wish me luck, folks!

Back On Track In Manila

Since I came back from my 5-day homecoming vacation last Friday, I just wanted to get enough sleep. Besides, I had a reason to be lazy. I went straight to work last Friday and became busy on Saturday and Sunday morning. Even my little home is messy and dusty, I left the mess alone for 3 days. I was just exhausted.

I finally had time today even for doing my laundry. It also got piled up after my vacation. LOL!

Now I'm finally back on track even with updating my blogs. I need to work on my blogs because I need to earn from them. There's a lot of work to do online and offline. I also have to focus on some important tasks at work because I'm aiming for something. I don't want to talk about what that is for now. I'll let you know soon. I hope I'd be able to manage my time really well. So help me, God. And yeah, I also have some obligations to do at Church.

I'll be very busy and challenged yet I'm ready!

From Baggage Guy To Band Vocalist

I was able to introduce my boyfriend with my musician cousins - Mark and Jayson. He got along pretty well with Mark. I guess it has to do with the age preference? LOL! With Mark, since he's easy going, my boyfriend didn't have a hard time connecting with him.


My boyfriend saw some videos of Kuerdas Band. He couldn't believe his eyes. Haha! It's because he saw that Mark was the lead vocalist of the band. And he couldn't believe how suave Mark was on stage. Then of course, I bragged about how the band started back then. That Mark used to be just the "baggage man" who used to tag along with us on our out-of-town performances. Then, when we decided to create the band, Mark became our bassist. Of course, we were on our teenage days back then, he didn't carry the markbass little rocker 500. He used a bass guitar and at the same time was a back up singer. It was when we realized he's got a good voice. Later on, Mark got promoted and became the lead vocalist together with yours truly. Now that I moved out of GenSan for a job opportunity years ago, Mark remained the only lead vocalist.

That's my cousin, Mark's from-the-"baggage guy"-to-band-vocalist story. My boyfriend was left amazed and went on watching the videos online.

Blogging My Precious Time

Time is running fast lately. I realized that because I often feel like I keep wasting so much of my precious time to very unproductive and sometimes non-sense things - like going through my Facebook page. I get hooked with nosing around people's statuses, make several likes and comments and then later realize I haven't done my important online chores because I'm exhausted. Other times, I play Candy Crush - the only online game I learned to play which I downloaded on my phone.

The thing is, I have been doing these online "nonsense and didn't have enough time with my blogs. I don't know why but I think I have to find a way to bring back my love to writing and blogging. I guess visiting old online friends' websites will encourage me to bring back that passion to write. I just don't allow myself to have the time.

I guess I have to discipline myself this time. I'm aware that there are lots of opportunities that I can get online. I just have to put more time and focus on my blogs. I have always dreamed of owning some more domains because there are a lot of things I want to write about. I even want to have that website builders rankings in order for Google to recognize my blogs. How would I be able to do all these if I keep wasting my time, right? It's about time to change. And the time is NOW!

Blogging world, here I go again! :)

This Girl Is On Fire!


Just before this year 2014 began, I had a sense that it is going to be a good year for me. Optimism and keeping my Faith helped a lot. I can definitely say this year is going to be a good year for me.

Career-wise, my hard-work last year paid off. And I'm slowly reaping my harvest! :) I feel truly blessed! Now I'm working on my savings which I can make a good use for my "future". :)

My love-life is doing just fine. It's a roller-coaster ride sometimes but I think my relationship with my boyfriend is better than what it used to be. We love and respect each other all the more this time. There's still a lot to go through, we are both aware of that. But we promised to be strong. I don't know what the future holds for us but I'm not anxious about it now. I just know that we're both willing to be patient with each other and help each other grow. I'm happy with what we have right now. That's all for now. LOL!

I haven't seen my family for months now. I so miss them! I'm excited about my homecoming which is 11 more days to go. I'll get to spend sometime with them. It wouldn't be much but I'll make the most of my upcoming vacation. The love of my life is coming with me. It's about time he meet the whole family. :)

I know for a fact that I'll be going through some rough times as well. I'm ready for that. I have God to back me up and He will never forsake me. He has really been good all this time. All I can do is to be a good servant to Him and perform all my duties and obligations that He gave me.

What I'm praying for this year? That is to have good health and be more optimistic and be brave enough to face all life's challenges. I am really on fire right now. I feel like I have fully grown into a woman, that I have matured. I hope I'd stay consistent and really focused this time.

My Saturdays Are Boyfriend Days

I was at my boyfriend's house yesterday. Despite my constant prodding of asking him to send me home so I can fully rest to feel better, he didn't allow me. I didn't stand my ground or else we will end up fighting. And besides, it's the only day of the week that him and I get to spend more time being together. 

I have been sick with cough and flu for days now and there are kids, his nephews, at their house. I don't want to spread epidemic especially to the kids that's why I was insisting to come home instead. But since I wasn't allowed to go home, I stayed distant from the kids as much as I can. The younger nephew kept going near me and kept asking a lot of questions. That's what he does when I'm around because he's aware that I'm very much fond of him. I have to constantly remind him that he doesn't have to talk face to face with me or else he will also get sick.

So what my boyfriend did was give the kids a bunch of coins to play with so they won't bother going to me anymore. It worked! LOL! They concentrated on playing with the coins. Thankfully those coins are not custom coin because some of them are scattered on the floor and rolled beneath the furnitures. When the kids were done, my boyfriend had a hard time collecting his coins back.

I slept the remaining of the day because I was so tired and exhausted. My body feels like I need a lot of sleep this weekend. I hope and pray that I will fully recover this weekend so that spending my next Saturday with my boyfriend and his nephews will be more fun.

It's Late But Happy New Year!

It's been 10 days since 2014 began. It took me so long to make an update on this blog. I know it's late but I still want to say:

Happy New Year to everyone! :) 

So what took me so long to blog? I got lazy and always got distracted by my boyfriend. LOL! And of course I've been too busy with work - the usual stuff.

The truth is, I haven't really organized my thoughts about my plans for this year. I haven't even set up a concrete goal yet. It's still something in the works. Although there are a lot of things I want to do this year. Once I'm able to plan everything out, I'll let you guys know about it.

Here I am again, mumbling and just being gibberish. My thoughts are just random because I'm sick right now. Not really a good start for this year. But I hope to be able to publish an interesting post next time. For now, I'll hit the sack and recuperate.

Take care everyone!

Not In A Hurry For Marriage

A friend of mine posted a status on Facebook. It wasn't a wedding ring that's on her finger yet but an engagement ring! Not too long from now, we're all going to notice a wedding announcement. I'm happy for her. She haven't told me the details of what transcribed during the proposal but I'm sure it was romantic.

These kind of scenarios make a girl like myself, who is in a relationship, think about when I'll get my own happy ending. The funny thing is, people would always turn to me and ask the same question. I'm not in a hurry but the pressure is always on. Especially that most of my friends my age have already settled down. They even have kids that are growing so fast. They just couldn't wait for the announcement when I'll get engaged and get married.

If money isn't just an issue, my boyfriend and I would have had that life together soon. However, it's not going to happen yet. And I know a lot of my friends and family don't believe this, but I'm pretty much contented with the relationship I have with my boyfriend. I don't want to hurry things up. I'm not in a hurry for marriage just yet. :)

Happy Thanksgiving Day for 2013!


While others are busy preparing for the holiday season, we (members of Iglesia Ni Cristo) are busy preparing for our Annual Thanksgiving Day which we celebrate every third Sunday of December.

It's the time of the year that we look back to all the goodness that we received from the Almighty Father. Trials and tribulations may have been experienced the past year but these made us all the more strong in our Faith. He has never left us and His love is unending.

Words are definitely not enough to thank You, dear Lord!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my brethren around the world!

Work To Improve Google Page Rank

I feel bad about this blog's current Google page rank. From Page Rank of 2 to 1. Not that I really worked hard in trying to maintain and improve the page rank. I'm just disappointed about myself.

Yeah, I can blame it mostly on the crappy laptop that I used to have. But my lack of passion to write is part of it. I can't deny that.

I'll try to make it up for my blogs. This time, I mean it. I now have a new laptop that will help me get myself back into being passionate about writing my thoughts online and sharing it to the rest of the world. I can't promise to not write rubbish thoughts though but I'll try my best to improve on my writing skills.

So help me, God.

Another Busy Saturday

Tomorrow is going to be another busy weekend for me and my boyfriend. Other than attending our class in the morning, we'll also going to take part on a Church activity. My boyfriend owns great behringer amps and a sound system so he's lending it to the Church to be used for the activity. He's going to be the operator and I? The assistant operator! LOL!

We will have a long test tomorrow at school. I haven't even started reading through my notes. Hopefully we will end up getting a good score for tomorrow's exam. We're also hoping that tomorrow's Church event is going to be a success. So help us, God.

I've Got A New Baby!

Not the baby - human, alright? :D

The new baby is this:

image from google.com

My application for a gadget plan for Sun Cellular (one of the competing communications network in the country) was approved and I was asked to go to the shop  yesterday to pick up the gadget. I was initially approved for the polaroid tablet but when I saw their flyer that has a gadget plan for SamSung ATIV Book 2 and a modem stick, I asked them to change the plan right then and there. Laptop was actually what I really needed in the first place. Thank God, they have this plan available right now and they didn't hesitate to approve my application!

Now I don't have any reasons to not update my blogs anymore. I'm even more inspired to blog and as soon as I'm able to buy accessories for this new baby, I'll be ready to take more opportunities online! 

New baby means more earnings and opportunities for me!

November Wedding

A couple of my church acquaintances are getting married later today in about 2 hours. They are also my boyfriend's friends. We somehow witnessed their love story and became part of it somehow. We're happy and excited to witness their marital vow.

My boyfriend told me that he's a bit jealous of the couple. And that he wish we will have our turn soon. We both know it's impossible right now with our financial status. We have a lot of saving to do. So we have to wait. :)

My boyfriend is one of the groomsmen while I was assigned to be one of the usherettes on the reception. I'm just glad that we're one of those who are going to witness this solemn vow of our friends' matrimony. May God bless their marriage.

Not Moving Out Just Yet

I have been planning to move out yet here I am on the same small room for years now. I don't want to get stuck here but I don't think that I can move out soon either. I can't afford to move just yet. So I'm planning to fix this room and tidy it up just so I can somehow love living in this little space.
 
I'm planning to purchased some inexpensive furniture that are at the same time save some space in this room. Right now I got tables that only serve that purpose. I want something a tv stand that will also accommodate my books/magazines and maybe my computer. :) I hope I can find that type of furniture.
 
I also need to purchase or have my boyfriend build a closet for my dresses. The one I have right now doesn't serve its purpose anymore and really need to be replaced. when I bought these closets just a year ago, I never thought it will break this soon. Sigh. The door is not in place and I don't like it anymore.
 
There are a lot of things that I have to do in this small space. I just hope that I'm making the right choice of not moving out just yet.
