My October 30th went well

Got up at around 4:30am cause me and my parents plus some other friends will jog at PICC grounds. My parents are both health conscious too. Am getting a big chunk of motivation from them. Here are some shots that I got (cam phone):

We usually park at Harbor Square near CCP Complex.

After we jogged and played badminton, we went to Seaside. Bought some Shrimp and Halaan. You can have it cooked there or simply take it out. Since it's already late, they decided to just cook it at home. I love Sundays, I love bonding with my parents.

Chocolate = comfort food.

While strolling around the supermarket, I asked my mom to buy me some (down there) Since I am too excited to eat one, I already ate the Toblerone (thus not included anymore in the picture) I dunno, it's just that I feel so happy when I eat chocolates. You may call me weird but I always smile when I'm munching one. I blame it all to my Dad who always buy me chocolates.

My Top 3 favorite chocolates are Royce Nama (quite expensive) Milka (not available locally) and Toblerone. Kinder Bueno, Toblerone, Cadbury, Hersheys and other Nestle products satisfy my cravings too. Last Christmas, I got two buckets/boxes of chocolates. I felt so thankful and ecstatic that time. Am hoping that this coming Christmas someone will give a bucket or two. If you feel that that is too much, A piece would suffice. I will truly appreciate it.

This ain't a lengthy post about chocs. I just want to let you know all how I drool over 'em. 

I'm getting blind

No, not really.

Me and my mom were at SM awhile ago. She accompanied me to buy a new pair of eye glasses at Sarabia Optical.

 I was eyeing for a cheap pair since she'll be the one who'll pay but she insisted to go for the expensive (durability wise) When the opto/opta whoever doctor was that checked my grade vision, I got 375 for my left eye and 400 for the right. My grade has been stable for about three years now. I asked doc if it's already worst then he told me there's nothing to worry about.

I've been wearing contact lenses since Grade 5 (so that's about 11 years already) I decided to switch back to glasses cause migraine is disturbing me frequently and I think it's all because of my contact lenses. If only I could turn back time, I won't waste my time playing games on Play Station the whole day for it may be one of the reasons why I got near-sighted.

I need to deal with my near sightedness for the rest of my life. If ever I have enough money, I won't hesitate to undergo Lasik Surgery. I really want a 20/20 vision. It sucks to feel somehow blind especially during night time without wearing glasses or contact lenses.

On vices

How many bad vices you got? Me, I got two. Namely alcohol and cigarette. When did these vices come into my system?

My drinking career started when I was in High school. At first I was hesitant to try it but eventually, my body accepted it with open arms. I remembered my first attempt, my very first bottle of SanMig Light. I was a retard for trying it with salt (haha, stupid I know) Well, t'was bland and I kinda hate the rustic taste. I was wondering then why do people enjoy this shit drink? Then I got introduced to Red Horse. It's way better than SanMig Light. Love the taste and the way it kicks me after consuming 5 to 6 bottles.

When I got into College, I met some friends who are into drinking session too. They love RH over any other beers. Adding to our addiction are hard drinks; to name a few: GSM Blue, The Bar Apple, Tequila Mix, Cuervo and so on. My worst drinking was when I'm in 3rd & 4th year college. Almost thrice a week when we go on a session (even during exams week!) plus the start also of my new vice, smoking. Just a random fact, I easily get drunk when beer is on the table rather than hard.

With the said vices, did it affect my studies? did I disappoint anyone? No & None. Cause I know my limitations and I know when to stop. I already put an end to my 2 year smoking habit. It has been 7 months since my last and you may congratulate me for that. As for drinking, twice a month would be my limit.

Cheers now for a healthy lifestyle. I must say that t'was good also for me to try these vices when I was still young; realized on an early note their harmful effects. So what am I doing with my life right now? I do work out everyday, I eat healthy food and I sleep 8 hours a day.

Hope you guys be health conscious someday. Let's not abuse our body for you'll gonna regret what you have done in the future. Stay fit!

No matter how we plan everything, we arrive at something very unexpected and of course, eventually, disappointment follows. I am a big (not literally) believer of destiny. That everything is already written and we just have to go with the flow. Giving justice to the famous line "Everything happens for a reason."

You are the captain of your own fate - Yes, this is valid. But what I am trying to say here is, no matter how we want to control the cycle or situation that we are in, the final outcome or result would always be what it is supposed to be. Gets nyo? Hirap mag explain e! haha

Since we don't know yet what is in store for us in a daily basis, we should also learn not to expect too much. We become so frustrated due to our unrealistic expectations. We expect too much of life.

I wanna go somewhere.

Dvao maybe? or HongKong? The idea of just being at home for a week kills me.
Thus what I have written in my "about me" part, given a chance to switch profession - I would love to be a tour guide.

There's something about travelling that excites me. It's not just the scenery or the people that you will meet, but also the "nerve" feeling that may happen along the way. Let me tell you a story...

When I was 19, my Dad allowed me to go to Hong Kong alone. Why? because I want to. Because I want to experience going solo. I was ecstatic that time cause finally, somehow, it's a dream come true for me. It's gonna be me, myself and I.

6:30 in the morning, my Dad brought me to the airport. Well, he doesn't care at all. All he said was "Ingat ka" that's it, no more other parent to children talking stuff.
Fast forward.. When it's finally my turn on queue, the Customs officer asked me: "19 ka lang? asan kasama mo? mag isa ka lang talaga.?" (You're just 19? do you have company? you're really alone?) Then I said: "Yes I am 19 and I am alone" Without further questions, She let me in.

While waiting for boarding time, I am thinking, who would be sitting beside me? Would I meet a stranger that will make my trip be more adventurous? Well, to my dismay, two old Mainlanders sat beside me. How will I be able to talk to them if they could only speak Mandarin? Sad.

Without going much into details, let's go to the gist. I got lost in Hong Kong. Stupid you may say but my being adventurous lead me to the unfortunate. I was somewhere in Mong Kok and I decided not to take the MTR instead, I walked back going to hotel. Since I enjoyed much, I didn't notice that I'm heading the wrong way! I got lost for an hour and it was night time. I was nervous that I may never get back (how pessimistic I am)

I really prayed hard at that moment. It's no joke okay, I am in an alley, street or wherever that I barely know. With God's guidance, I was able to get back. I saw the MTR station and I immediately rode in. was dead tired also. That would be an unforgettable experience.


I dunno how to end this post. My mind ain't functioning that well. What the hell. This post has been in my drafts for 1 week already

Don't Quit

Hi guys! am sharing you my favorite poem. Memorize ko rin to :)

Don't Quit
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Part of workforce no more.

Disclaimer ulit : Ang post na ito ay hindi malalimang tagalog, wag nyo husgahan ang aking writing skills. Watch out for some pang-kanto words.

Noong nakaraang linggo, wala na, ako ay Makati boy no more. Oo, resigned na ako sa trabaho. Umalis ako ng may ngiti sa labi, walang alinlangan at ano nga yun sa ingles? Ahh....regret. Alam nyo ba, tatlong buwan pa lamang ako sa aking unang trabaho? Di lang yan, Fresh grad pa ako.O diba? lakas ng loob! or more like kapal ng mukha.  Teka, bakit nga ba? Ano nga ba ang mga dahilan ng pag alis ko?

Sa unang linggo ko sa trabaho, di ko inaasahan. Sanayan lang siya pero sobra talagang stressful (kelangan gamitin both intellectual and social skills! Pati pala physical!). Aba aba eh teka, maaaring sabihin nyo na "Bobo pala to eh, bakit mo tinanggap yung trabaho kung wala kang ideya sa gagawin mo?" Yun na nga, fine, my bad. Late na din kasi ako nakapag hanap ng work okay? Kaya sabi ko sa sarili ko, unang tumanggap sa akin, kukunin ko na.

E di ayun na, matapos ang ilang linggo, nababagot na ako sa ginagawa ko. Hindi ko gusto, at hindi ko nakikita ang sarili ko ng matagalan sa ganoong work. People-wise, napaka ganda. Super professional at babait ng mga tao. Para talagang pamilya. Kaso diba, hindi mo naman pwedeng isacrifice yung career mo para sa ganoon lamang na dahilan?

Sakto nga naman sa pag iinarte ko na mag resign na lamang, kailangan ng Dad ko ng help sa aming business. Since sobrang wineigh ko naman ang mga bagay bagay bago ako nag resign, tingin ko meant talaga ako na tumulong nalang sa aking Ama. Kasi diba, dun din naman ang bagsak ko? Marami na rin naman na kasing nagsasabi na ang calling ko talaga is mag business. Na nasa itsura ko daw ang pagiging businessman. O diba feel na feel ko e.

So, kamusta naman ako ngayon? eto. wala. Bahay muna. Hmm pahinga? haha. Basta bum ako. I'll start next week I swear, nakakahiya naman kasi sa mga magulang ko na nakatambay lang ako sa bahay.

I know that God has plans for me. Wala na akong pakielam ke mali o tama ang desisyon ko. Basta alam ko sa sarili ko na may patutunguhan ako. Hindi ko man oras o panahon ngayon, basta darating din ang pinakahihintay kong araw. Ang maging succesful at maipagmalaki ng aking mga magulang. Kaya Ma at Pa, chill lang kayo dyan. I won't settle being an inutil unemployed boy.

Irrelevant things

Why do I always remember irrelevant things? Like, I could still recall what you wore three years ago in a certain party, exact quote that you have said in a plain conversation etc.

I'm also good in names and faces too.

Nanghihinayang lang ako, sayang kasi sa Brain Cells.

**sayang din tong post ko. Napakaikli. Halatang wala lang magawa.

There's someone out there for me.

How's life goin so far? I am well satisfied with family and friends.
I am in no hurry for a relationship because I hate things going into waste.
Sorry for being a destiny believer.

Me. shall. not. eat.

Title says it all. I have to lessen my food intake. After my beloved Dad's birthday last saturday (lamunan eh, haha), I have sworn upon the altars of gods and goddesses that me should frequent gym and stop eating rice for two months! Surprisingly, I have survived the first four days. Thanks to my undying discipline.

Awhile go, I was put into test. Our main dish for dinner is KARE KARE. Just so you know guys, it's my favorite. I could consume three plates if that's the viand. Moving on, I was watching my family while they were eating. I am containing myself, and it really kills me. :( After an hour or so, I was able to resist the temptation. They ate it all and I don't give a damn (huhuhu baka nga I don't care, deep inside naglalaway ako)

Someday, everything that I do would pay off. Sobrang hot ko na, maglalaway kayong lahat sa katawan ko,

**Kidding. :p

Meeting a stranger ain't strange

Ever got a feeling where you want to go somewhere and just simply disappear? where no one would know your whereabouts and hoping that somehow, you could escape the harsh realities? Well, you're not alone. I've been wanting to runaway and meet new people that could make a difference in my life.

I am dead tired of my everyday cycle. Oh, don't get me wrong here, it's not that I am not satisfied with the people around me but the idea of meeting new humans in a new place sounds interesting. I know it's very unlikely to mingle with strangers but if you don't take the risk, how would it be exciting?

Guys, I am not encouraging you to, you know, be extra flaming when hanging with people that you barely know. C'mon, we are all aware that we should still be careful and somehow trust our instincts and never give our full trust in just a snap. It sucks to regret, right?

May it be for mere fun, for a change or for the sake of whatnot, Meeting a stranger ain't strange.

I just keep on coming back

I was at UST awhile ago to get my xray result from the hospital. It really feels good to be back home. To tell you guys, I have studied there for 8 years (since Highschool) and it saddens me to part with my beloved university. I can't help but reminisce the good old times with friends and blockmates.

Before I stroll around, I bought Wintermelon Milk tea at Golden Chopsticks (located at 2nd Flr Carpark) Oh well, it's just your typical milk tea, nothing special. I just wasted 70 pesos. I should have bought something cheaper.

I headed to QuadriCentennial park to kill some time.

Nothing has changed. I'd be glad to go back every now and then. I swear to all sorts that by the time I already have children, the only school that I will let them enroll in is UST.

Viva La Liga El Tomasino.

Today is just the end.

It was exactly a month ago when I filed my resignation letter. It took me forever to finally decide that I want to leave my work. It kills me everyday because my dreams are at risk. I want to thank God for being there when I was uncertain. All I know now is I'm happy and I don't regret what I did.

I don't know exactly what to do with my life yet. A big chunk of what I feel tells me to venture on business. I have tons of ideas but I dunno how to properly execute it.

Others may think that I am heading to a wrong direction, that It's very unlikely for me just to be bum. Hell no okay? Maybe it's not yet my time, right? Time will tell. :p
