[Day 27] Jan 27 – Nihongo again

Yeah.. just received the email of our HR regarding the schedule of our Nihongo Class… sigh.. I’m not ready yet. And I think I already forgotten the lessons. 😦 Time to do some review again.

[Day 26] Jan 26 – Pain

Mefenamic acid given to me by our company nurse. Hoping to soothe my aching tooth.

[Day 25] Jan 25 – Chowking!

I won 30 GCs of Chowking Value King Meals courtesy of RX 🙂 and last Monday, I already used it. I treated my friend Marga after a tiring monday work.

[Day 24] Jan 24 – Phobia 2

Weekends. I watched 2 Thai Horror movies.. and I really enjoyed it. The first one is 4bia.. 4 stories.. Shake, Rattle, & Roll-ish.. but much better. Then I also watched the sequel of this movie, Phobia 2.. composed of 5 stories. It was really tiring, but I love it 🙂

[Day 23] Jan 23 – Here I Go Again

I decided to buy a new CP (SE S312) since the current one that I have is still under repair (it’ll be fixed at the end of Feb..).. so once my other cp is already ok, I’ll just go somewhere and sell it. 🙂

[Day 22] Jan 22 – Happy Birthday Moja!
Mojacko, my co-rusher, had his late birthday bash at Congo Grille, El Pueblo. Then after the dinner, we went to Metrowalk and sang the whole evening/morning. Then went to RX afterwards.


Gabe Bondoc: When You Say (Nine)

I was surfing Youtube this early morning.. checking out some music videos of Stacie Orrico and some movie trailers, then I decided to check out my subscriptions. Went to Gabe Bondoc’s page (link) and saw his latest video. This time, he shared his original composition yet again, and I must say, this song is pretty amazing! It was well written, the melody is good, and his voice is absolutely the best. And lastly, the video is pretty clear this time. awesome.

So here’s “When You Say (nine)” by Gabe Bondoc. Filipino Pride!

“when you say (nine)” – gabe bondoc (copyright, 2010)

I remember the first time
it’s always playing in my mind
I’ve never felt like this before

and every time that you kiss me
feels like I’m having a sweet dream
and i’mma never feel the way i do with anyone else

my pulse is racing
when I see your face and
here is what you’re doing to me

when you
when you say
you love
love me
I can feel my heart
beat beat
race behind my chest

every time is the first time
so I pretend it’s the last time
that I’mma ever hear you say those words
three little words

I wanna hold you forever
I promise that I ain’t never
never ever gonna let you go
I want you to know

my pulse is racing
when I see your face and
here is what you’re doing to me


if ever you question my feelings
place your hand on my heart, you’ll feel it’s beating for you
cuz he knows, he knew before I did
I’m not scared, I’m tired of hiding
I know that it’s you because

lucky day :)

Finally, after a week of trying to win the Chowking promo at The Morning Rush (RX93.1), nanalo na rin ako sa wakas!! Hoorah!!

There is an on-going promo right now at TMR courtesy of Chowking wherein the DJs will announce the topic of the day and the listeners will tweet their responses for that topic.

Since monday, I kept on joining the promo, but luck is just not on my side. But today.. it is a very lucky day for me. Gino and Fran (sub for Chico and Delle since they were in vacay right now) picked my answer as one of the outstanding reply on their topic: How do you plan to have a bigger presence in the workplace?

and I answered: Instead of waiting for someone to tell you what to do, be proactive and ask what you can do. 🙂

Hoorah hoorah.. I won a month-worth of free chowking meals 🙂

“Love Story (Via Romeo)” – Taylor Swift (Reworded by Gabe Bondoc)

We were both young when I first saw you.
I close my eyes and the flashback starts..
.. you’re standing there.. on a balcony in summer air.

See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns.
Making my way, I’m moving through the crowd to say “ello..”

Little did you know..

.. that I was Romeo, as I was throwing pebbles..
.. heard your father say “Stay away from Juliet!”
Had to leave you crying on the staircase.. begging me “Please don’t go!”

So I said..

Julie I’ll take you somewhere we can be alone.
Just be patient.. nothing left to do but run.
You’ll be the princess, I’ll be the prince..
It’s a love story baby say “Yes.”

So you sneak out to the garden I’m hiding..
.. we keep quiet cause we’re dead if they find me.
Close your eyes.
.. escape this town for a little while.

I was Romeo, you were my Juliet.
Even my father said loving you is not worth it.
Had to leave you on crying on the staircase.. begging me “Please don’t go!”

So I said..


Julie I’ll save you, they’ll never come between us!
Just hold on and love is gonna free us!
Don’t be afraid, oh we’ll make it through this!
It’s a love story.. baby just say “Yes.”

I’m sure she’s tired of waiting.
Swear I’m on my way, just had to work some things out!
I hope her faith’s not fading..
.. that was when I met her outskirts of town..

.. and I said..

Julie I apologize, didn’t mean to scare you.
Need you more than anything.. I refuse to share you.
Saw it in her eyes, she didn’t know what to think..
I knelt to the ground and I pulled out a ring..

And said..

“Marry me Juliet.
You’ll never have to be alone.
I love you and that’s all that I really know!
I talked to our families, pick out a white dress..
.. it’s a love story baby just say “Yes.”


Cause we were both young when I first saw you.


Project 365

So, what’s Project 365?  Here it is..

People will often say that their whole lives flashed before their eyes after they experienced a traumatic event. Perhaps it’s a bit morbid, but we think that sounds pretty incredible.

When Taylor McKnight started taking a photo a day on January 1st, 2004, he never imagined the project would not only serve as a way to remember a year, but also help him understand what was important to him in his life.

Whether it was his relationships, his career, or his fashion sense, recording a photo a day for a whole year left him with a rich visual history of his life. And it made him a better photographer to boot!

Now that he’s in the middle of doing it for a second time, we asked Taylor to write about it for us. Read on for our tutorial on how and why to create your own daily photographic history.

Why do it?

Taking a photo a day is a big undertaking with big payoffs. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider doing it:

  • Imagine being able to look back at any day of your year and recall what you did, who you met, what you learned… (Often we find it hard to remember what we did just yesterday or even last night, let alone a whole year ago!)
  • Your year-long photo album will be an amazing way to document your travels and accomplishments, your haircuts and relationships. Time moves surprisingly fast.
  • Taking a photo a day will make you a better photographer. Using your camera every day will help you learn its limits. You will get better at composing your shots, you’ll start to care about lighting, and you’ll become more creative with your photography when you’re forced to come up with something new every single day.

Tips on How to Do It

Here are six tips on how to create your own Project 365:

  1. Bring Your Camera Everywhere
    Yes, everywhere. Get in the habit. Grocery stores, restaurants, parties, work, and school. Going to a movie theatre? Snap a pic of the flick with your phone–there are photo-ops everywhere. If you have one of those tiny tiny cameras, you have no excuse not to have it in your pocket all the time. And if you don’t? Camera phones are a great substitute.
  2. Make Posting Easy
    You can install blog software like Movable Type or WordPress on your own site and create an entry for each photo, but for true ease of use, try a photo sharing site. Flickr will let you post a week’s worth of photos in 2 minutes flat, and fotolog and are geared toward a photo-a-day workflow. Making it fast and easy means you’re much more likely to do it.
  3. Vary Your Themes
    Try to capture the day’s events in a single photo. Perform photographic experiments. Take a photo of someone new you meet, something you ate for the first time, or something you just learned how to do. Take a photo of something that made you smile. And don’t forget to take a photo of yourself at least once a month so you can remember how you’ve changed, too.
  4. Tell a Story
    Use your blog entry, or your photo description, to explain what’s going on in each day’s photograph. How good did that dinner taste? What made you want to take a photo of that stranger? It’ll help you remember down the road, and it gives friends following along a better appreciation of why you took the photo you did. You don’t need to write a lot, just enough to add some color.
  5. Don’t Stop, No Matter What
    This is perhaps the most important tip of all. You will get tired of taking a photo every single day. Some days, you will consider giving up. Don’t. The end result is worth the effort. Remind yourself why you wanted to do it in first place.There will be times you’ll think there’s nothing interesting left to take a photo of, and times you’ll think you didn’t do anything exciting enough to take a photo of. There’s always a great photo to be made.

    Get out of the house and take a walk. Or stay inside and look around. Take a photo of something important to you. Take a photo of the inside of your house so you can see how your taste has changed over the years. Take a photo of anything, just don’t stop.

    N.b. It helps if you’ve told your friends about the project and asked them to follow along. Their encouragement will keep you going!

  6. Post early, post often
    Plan on going through and posting your photos at least once a week so you don’t get backlogged and feel overwhelmed. Ideally, post every day or two. Again, spend the time up front to make sure it’s quick and easy to post. It’ll make all the difference.


Let’s start now!! whooooot 🙂
