Off to Tagaytay

Last saturday, me and my family, with other relatives, went to Alfonso, Cavite to attend a Garden wedding of my cousin (ate Oying). It was my first time to go to Tagaytay, and also my first time to attend such a wedding, and it made me pretty excited about it. I didn’t attend my class in school for that day just to attend this special event. We left at Parañaque at 12:45pm. Along the way, we saw really great views. The road is getting steeper and the air is getting freezing cold as we headed to the venue. We saw an overview of the lowlands and we even saw the breath-taking view of the mountains.

We arrived at Sonya’s Garden (the venue of the wedding and reception) at past 3pm. We fixed ourselves and took our seats at the closed garden venue. The wedding started at 5pm and my cousin, Ate Oying, looked stunning at her wedding gown. The wedding ceremony went on, and there was a part where the bride sang a song entitled “Father we commit” and it made the event more romantic. My ate Oying really sang well, her beautiful voice gave me goosebumps, and we’re so proud of her! I was teary-eyed when the couple read their vows. sigh.

After the wedding and the photo op at the altar, we headed to the reception area. It was a formal dinner, and the foods were so good. We even had another photo op with the newly weds, and I saw that Ate Oying looked very happy upon seeing us. She really wants the whole family to be there.

Then after that, me and my cousins went outside to take some shots of the beautiful surrounding. Picture taking here and there, and did have a lot of fun. We went home at almost 10 pm and arrived in Parañaque at 11:30pm. It was a joyful event, another treasured moments.

Amazing Race 12 Finale!

Amazing race 12

Last Monday was the finale of Amazing Race 12. But because of the festivities happended last Sunday and because of the absence of Chico and Delamar that Monday morning, I unintentionally forgot to watch the AR12’s finale!! I was shocked when I instantly remembered that i have to watch something, but it was too late that day. Good thing that it has a replay to be shown on Tuesday night.
So I waited patiently yesterday. All I know is that it will be aired at 7:30pm, so I changed the channel of our TV when the clock hits that time. To my disappointment and disbelief, there was no Amazing race12!! I’m so pissed that time and I decided to just do my report on Rizal. It was 8:30pm when I decided to give it a try again, to change the channel and check out if there’s AR12 replay.
whoooppeee! There it was, I’m just right on time. So, I finally watched the Amazing race 12 finale. I was so happy with what I’ve watched, I’ve been waiting for it for so long and finally, I’m almost teary-eyed with the result of it.
The 3 teams that were racing on that final leg are (1) Ron and Christina, (2) TK and Rachel, and (3) Don and Nick. And among them, I am rooting for TK and Rachel. At the start of the final leg, Ron and Christina were leading. The other two teams were left behind. I really thought that the father-daughter tandem will be the winner, but I’m still hopeful that time. The Roadblock part was the most exciting part, were all three teams were neck-to-neck. Good thing Rachel was very intelligent and she finished it ahead. It gave way to the big lead of TK and Rachel, and voila, they finished the race around the world first!

TK and Rachel

TK and Rachel is my most favorite team among all the teams that Amazing race had. It’s true, that they’ve proved that nice guys can win the race. They don’t have to cheat against other teams, they made great friends among other teams, they never fought against each other, no bad times, no rough moments. They stayed calm and relax all through out the race. They finished first, they finished last, yet they remained on track despite of all the ups and downs of the race. It was the sweetest victory, indeed. I really believe they deserve to win the prize! Way to go!

watch the last part of the race

Full-time Bum (no way!!)

To have a rest from work is the coolest thing, but to have a lifetime rest from work would be a nightmare!! I’m a graduating college student right now, and it is very obvious for me that the next stage of my life is the working stage. With the state of employment here in our country right now, I can sense that it will be a tough thing to have a job. Yeah, call center agent is the trend these days, there are loads of job hiring here and there, but it is just not suitable for me (but of course). I fully depend on IT jobs since it is the field that I opt to be in.
Right now, my schedule is two days a week in school. So I spend 5 days in our house. And the whole day, all I have to do is to watch TV shows, play some games on my PC, and listen to some music. Day by day, I grew tired of doing the same thing. And a thought came to me that I might do these things the whole year if I won’t have a job! I thought no way!!
Most of us are all giddy to have a job, most of my classmates are trying the call center fever, and most of us are all registered in websites that offers job search engine. Luckily, some IT companies are visiting our school (specifically our college) to offer some job positions. We took some test, and some lucky students (including me) passed it and went on with the interview (which is still not over by this time). We’re just hoping that more companies (more opportunities) will pour in on the next few months so that we won’t feel the hassle of looking for a job. And personally, I do hope that all of us will find a better job and have a better status someday
