And a Happy New Year!

My mom’s back in town with stories from her trip in Hawaii. So inggit. My parents are such traveling buffs that I can’t help but feel inadequate. Never mind. The coming 2008 is my year to let my feet go places. And I did get to go to Davao and Cebu (I can now say, I’ve been to LuzViMin) 🙂 Anyway, Hawaii looked beautiful in the pictures. It’s a definite must see in the future.

My 2007 in review

Kris and I have a new years tradition. For years now, we’ve had a year end review. 5 major events that has happened to us. This counts as our 4th year, and we’ve been thinking of what our review would be for a couple of weeks already. I have to admit that it was hard to pick just 5 big events (good or bad) that made and broke my 2007. But here it goes.

my mom’s coming home

In a couple of hours, my mom will be here soon and I’m looking forward to loads of good times this holiday season. More kwentos to follow. 🙂

You Are Somewhat Like Your Mom

Believe it or not, you and your mom are pretty darn similar.

It may not seem like it at times, but you and your mom have a lot of common ground.

Over time, you’ll probably get closer … especially if you emphasize the things you like about each other.

Are You Like Your Mom?

Exchange gifts

Last 23rd was the reunion of my college SA buds at Makati. I don’t enjoy planning reunions with this particular group of friends because they’re terrible when it comes to replying to texts or emails, with the exception of a very limited few. Also, this group is a “package deal” setup, with mini-groups. (Hindi ako sasama, kse di sasama si ganito)… sheesh! So it becomes quite difficult to plan because to the very last minute, I’m unsure of the number of people I should expect. And there has to be an email reminder, a text reminder, a call reminder during the day of the gimmick, otherwise people would just forget.

Having a Mocha Christmas

I’ve run out of scheduled posts. It’s a good thing I was able to go online today at Starbucks (free wifi, baby) to surf and blog. But not only that. I was able to finally accomplish completing my Starbucks stickers. (Yehey!) So there. After lusting for their leather planner for almost 3 weeks, with the help of friends, I now have my very own 2008 planner. Weee!


Many thanks to Reg, Allan, Kris, Harv, Kyle, KC, Danna, Jing, LA, Chris for helping me complete my stickers. :wave:

How do you fare?

Snagged from someone else’s blog. It’s a great share. Perfect for an after Christmas reflection. Enjoy.

Sometimes life is just too good that we need to find something wrong with it. In finding that dark cloud beyond the silver lining, we see ourselves as normal and wash away the guilt of having more than other people.

1. It’s your first day at a new job. You’re still a bit short on cash, so you need to walk to the office. It’s a hot day.

a. No sweat. As soon as I get my paycheck, I’ll have some extra money for the bus fare. And hey, I am reporting for WORK.
b. Jeez but it’s hot out. Being poor sucks. Look at those schmucks in them airconditioned buses. Life isn’t fair, dammit.

5-point bonus: Identify those less-fortunate than you are.

2. You get your paycheck and now have money for the bus fare. You can now take the bus to the office.

a. Right. I don’t have to walk to the office anymore. This means I can wake up a bit later and get some more rest. And hey, I’ve got another paycheck to look forward to.
b. Public transportation bites the big one. The buses are cramped and the airconditioner’s not working properly. Look at those schmucks sitting pretty in taxis. Life isn’t fair, dammit.

5-point bonus: Identify those less-fortunate than you are.
