life without Camwhoring

So my brother now has my camera.

Not exactly a loss since i got back my ipod mini from him (he held it hostage so i can give back the camera), but i do miss having my camera around. No more camwhoring, imprmptu photoshoots and on the fly clicking. *sigh*.

Then again, maybe i should get a new camera instead. *grins* yey.

+ + +

On another note, i'll be watching Superman Returns on Imax in a few hours. Hmmm. Wonder if the effects will be a lot better on 3D...

+ + +

I think i may be developing an ADD syndrome this late in my life. Seems to me nothing can hold my attention for that long. Yargh. Is this a sign of regression or old age?

modern quotes

Ang buhay ay parang bato, it's hard.

Better late than pregnant.

Behind the clouds are the other clouds.

It's better to cheat than to repeat!

Do unto others... then run!!!

Kapag puno na ang salop, kumuha na ng ibang

Magbiro ka na sa lasing, magbiro ka na sa bagong
'wag lang sa lasing na bagong gising.

When all else fails, follow instructions.

Ang hindi marunong magmahal sa sariling wika,
lumaki sa
ibang bansa.

To err is human, to errs is humans.

Ang taong bumbay kumakapit

Pag may usok...may nag-iihaw

Ang taong naglalakad nang matulin... may utang.

No guts, no glory... no ID, no entry.

Birds of the same feather that prays together...
stays together.

Kapag may sinuksok at walang madukot, may

Walang matigas na tinapay sa gutom na tao.

Ang taong di marunong lumingon sa kanyang
pinanggalingan ....
ay may stiff neck.

Birds of the same feather make a good feather

Kapag may tiyaga, may nilaga. Kapag may taga,
may tahi.

Huli man daw at magaling, undertime pa rin.

Ang naglalakad ng matulin, late na sa appointment

Matalino man ang matsing, matsing pa rin.

Better late than later....

Aanhin ang palasyo kung ang nakatira ay kuwago,
mabuti pa
ang bahay kubo, sa paligid puno ng linga.

Kapag maikli ang kumot, tumangkad ka na!

No man is an island because time is gold.

Hindi lahat ng kumikinang ay ginto.. muta lang yan.

Kapag ang puno mabunga...mataba ang lupa!

When it floods.

Pagkahaba haba man ng prusisyon .. mauubusan
din ng kandila.

Ang buhay ay parang gulong, minsan nasa
ibabaw, minsan nasa vulcanizing shop.

Batu-bato sa langit, ang tamaan... sapul.

Try and try until you succeed... or else try another.

Ako ang nagsaing... iba ang kumain. Diet ako eh.

Huwag magbilang ng manok kung alaga mo ay itik.

Kapag maiksi na ang kumot, bumili ka na ng bago.

If you can't beat them, shoot them. (Nalundasan)

An apple a day is too expensive.

An apple a day makes seven apples a week.
(really expensive)

this was an impromptu pictorial at the reception with my cousins and soon to be cousins in law. (Can you tell which ones are my true blood cousins? LOL)

This is just about a quarter of the expected number of girl cousins i have (mom's side) since the others weren't able to make it. And yes, these are only the girls. I wasn't kidding when i said we'll be like a village... LOL

Lunch with Mom

Lunch with Mom

Had the opportunity amidst the hullabaloo of everything to spend some QT time with my mom, and we got to have lunch at this chinese resto (not so good food, weird service). Despite the unappetizing meal, we had loads of fun catching up and well, pretty much chillin'. We also got to do some window shopping (though we did get to buy beads we liked, hehe). It's these rare moments that make me really happy knowing i got to go home for a while.

wedding countdown

So i'm back in the province for a couple of days for my cousin's wedding.

The good notes of this whole shebang? Aside from the leave (yey), i get to regroup and reconnect with my cousins, as well as their friends (who agree to help out). I also get to meet the newer members of the clan (younger cousins i have yet to introduce myself to), as well as get to chill with friends in between. Oh yes, and my dress. hahahah.

Haay, naku.

Now what? I've gone through so much the past few hours it's so hard to begin. By this time, half of my relatives from my mom's side has come forth and started what i call the pre-reunion reunion. That means my aunts and uncles from outside the province have started to arrive, and yes, everybody's being briefed about the upcoming event, from the Ilonggo dinner we'll all be having the day before the nuptials, to the event itself. I still have to settle a score with my aunt (the bride's mom) regarding my dress (i didn't follow the orange dress code, see). Plus, the coordination with the program (that's my cue) and our parts in the mass are meticulously monitored to be perfection by my aunts. Oh, the pressure... The body count? So far, it's 8 auncles and aunts(not counting the spouses) and 16 cousins (first cousins). And this is just the girl's mom's family, this is not counting the father's side :-P There's still the remaining bros and sis coming by friday, as well as the groom's family heading down here. Haaaaay, dios me. I feel like a huge baranggay fiesta is coming up this Saturday.

I wonder how i'll survive this....

the so-called vacation

Yesterday... to leave early (yey!) to go to my gown fitting in Makati. Kate was still wasn't done with my tulle skirt when we got there so got to chill in the CBTL Salcedo outlet with my Mcnuggets (late, late lunch) and iced tea. Finally got to try on my gown after half an hour. I'm really, REALLY lovin' it! :-) Sooo Excited!!!

Got the call from the folks that dinner will be late, so ddecided to chill at the Convergys outlet to meet up with bestfriend Kits and Maree for ice blendeds and cheesecake. Had a talkfest after days of OT (all three of us!) --- a great way to catch up! Had a wonderful surprise of meeting up with Larryboi, PaoPao and a new friend, Karen! :-D It's been so long since we got to see each other, it's such a great night!. The time passed easily and i got picked up later on for dinner two hours later. I wish i had my caMera! Damn. Still, there's gonna be a next time...hopefully... :-)

+ + +

Today... still working my ass off so ican leave here at 7pm sharp. I really wish they can approve those designs already...

+ + +

It's another long weekend, and i should be glad. Then why the hell do i feel like i'm heading off to hell?

The past few days have been hellish since i've been working my ass off to finish near-impossible deadlines (some of which are still to be approved) and trying to bear with the pressures of ongoing and upcoming issues (yet to unfold). Yargh... Ngarag galore.

By next week i'll be off to emcee and participate in my cousin's wedding (the first cousin to get hitched, so the pressure's on now!) as well as work with my mom on some family projects. I was hoping that this so-called vacation leave would be indeed a vacation, but apparently it's not gonna be that way. Being provinciana is really as bad as one seems, at least for my part. Yes, i love the family closeness, the endearing clannish protection i get from my family and relatives, but since this is such a BIG event, i'm guessing it'll be one of THOSE things i'd rather be in while high on Valium. Looks like my family's gonna ask those nosy (when are you gonna get hitched?" questions, as well as try to match make me with the "marrigeable" men they know. Oh the pain... not to mention the office will be calling (i'm giving them two days into the long weekend before they start bugging) about stuff i should have done before i left (um, ok.i gave notice that i'll be gone during this time BEFORE i even started working). Oh well. Blame it in the perfectionist and closet OC in me.

Back in the day...

communing with fellow camwhores

...when i used to have a life. When staying up late never meant being stuck in your cubicle until 3am working. When social interaction never had papers and deadlines in between. When meeting up was over alcohol, not coffee. ahhh life.

"here's my chance to just take the time

Some of my favourite finds during the week:

Pandora gives me some refreshing music choices, not to mention great insights on 'dem artists. LOL.

My lovely "wapak!" black heels, a find in the marikina shoe expo, which give me height (3 inches more) and a lotta conversation starters.

McDonald's milkshakes!!! They're back and blessed be, the outlet five minutres away from my office is finally open AND selling them. oh happy day!
