The Ninang

This conversation happened last year, Christmas 2009, between my mom and my ninang whom I’ve never met in my entire 22 years of existence.

Mom: Oh, bat napasyal ka dito?

Ninang: Balita ko malaki daw sweldo ng inaanak ko ah *smile*

Mom: Oh eh anu naman ngayun?

Ninang: Syempre baligtad na ngayun, yung ninang na yung mamasko sa inaanak.

Mom: Aba ang kapal mo naman, ni hindi ka nga nagbigay kahit 25 pesos sa inaanak mo, tapos mamamasko ka ngayun!!

Ninang: *tumawa na lang*


Have you ever experienced that? I know, I know. The thought is “It’s better to give than to receive”… pero diba, giving should be on your own will (tama ba yun?).. yung hindi pilit.. haaay.

Wish you all A Merry Christmas,
May the Joys of the season
Fill your heart with goodwill and cheer.
May the chimes of Christmas glory
Add up more shine and spread
Smiles across the miles,
To-day & In the New Year.

the chosen one

One morning, I received a text from one of the highly-respected rusher, Blueritz.  He said that he’ll be on vacay on Dec 13 up to Jan 07.  Since I promised him before that he can rely on me during when he’s off, He then asked me if I could do the recording of TMR.  Of course, it is an honor, so I accepted it, even if I knew that it will be a bit difficult for me, coz I’m a very busy person, and I don’t have the right tools.

Speaking of tools/gadgets/equipment, maybe you’re wondering (or maybe not, but let me just assume, k?) how do I record the show.  I actually have no idea how Blueritz do it, but for me, I depend a lot on my very hi-tech MP4.


very hi-tech.. with matching invisible glass screen na binalutan ng scotch tape. Yes, it is still working.  I just thought of showing it here… baka may maawa at bigyan ako ng bagong mp4. Haha! (yung ipod touch kasi walang radio :P)

So this thing is actually my portable radio.. since first year college (now I’m working for 2 years).. buhay pa naman sya, thank God.

So what I do is charge my mp4 before I sleep, then when I wake up (kelangan sakto 6am… pero minsan nalelate din), I turned on the radio and record the show.  Good thing meron syang feature na pwedeng irecord yung radio.. so during top10, I record the show, then pag tapos na yung top10, I need to pause the recording.  I’m doing it while I’m eating breakfast, while taking a bath! (though lately kinakuntsaba ko na yung Kuya ko to do it while I’m busy), while I’m on my way to work, and during morning briefing sa work!! 😀

Oha dedicated much.. though I’m not that satisfied with my recordings.. kasi hindi sya HD. hehehe.  And there are certain area in EDSA na medyo mahina yung signal (so if you are listening and naging choppy or static, nasa EDSA-Crossing/Shaw ako nun, nakasakay sa bus)… pero ok pa naman.. mapagtatyagaan pa naman 🙂

So now, nakasurvive ako ng 1 week.. and I’m actually getting better, I must say.  Thanks to Targrod pala for suggesting an audio converter, mas napadali buhay ko… and thanks din sa mga nangulit *ehem* lol, at sa mga naghintay.

Hopefully my recordings are enough to satisfy your daily C&D cravings. I will do my best to make it much better, at mas updated pa.. (medyo busy lang kasi sa work)

Thanks guys, and merry christmas! soso este xoxo.

(naku medyo paawa epek pala tong post na to… baka magdalawang isip si blueritz sa susunod hahaha. kidding 😉 )



Finish Line!

Last week, two awesome races ended with a bang!

The 17th Season of The Amazing Race marked a history last monday.  The winners, doctors Nat and Kat, were the first All-female team who won the Amazing race.  They truly deserved it because they played it very clean, no petty fights throughout the race, and they overcome their fears (eating meat for Kat, and Heights for Nat).  I was hoping that Jill and Thomas will win too, coz they’re also a good and fair team, but that taxi driver really caused their lost.

Like I’ve said on my previous posts, it was my first time to watch and finish a TARA season.  And oh boy, it was the perfect timing!  Our representative, the Philippine team Rich Herrera and Rich Hardin, emerged as the first team to finish the Amazing Race Asia 4.  That final leg was really exciting when The team Riches and the Indonesia team were really close during the challenges. I was so afraid when Natasha and Hussein got the first car on the Caltex Station.  Good thing they picked the harder detour and Hussein refused to do the roadblock.  So, the Richards made their way to the final pit stop with no sweat!  Another deserving team, and they made all of the Filipinos very proud.

And what’s more amazing is that I got the chance to met these guys during their interview on The Morning Rush with Chico and Delamar before the finale.  They are very nice and cool, and really friendly.

Now, I’m so freakin excited with the upcoming season of The Amazing Race.

The Amazing Race Unfinished Business is the title of the 18th season of the CBS reality competition, and host Phil Keoghan announced during a preview at the end of the 17th season finale that when it debuts Feb. 20, “your favorite teams return to finally finish what they started and prove they deserve another shot.”



Early morning conversation while having breakfast:

Mom: Uy, si Nanay Oyet nyo may bagong cellphone.. touchscreen! Gusto mong bilhin?

Kuya: May wi-fi ba yun??

Mom: *clueless*..umm.. meron yun!

Kuya: Alam mo ba ‘my (mommy) yung “wi-fi”?

Mom: oo.. basta.. may “Y” yun!!



home again

whuddddup wordpress!! Merry Christmas!! 😉

Ok.. I’ve been MIA for a couple of weeks.. so freakin busy and internet connection is not cooperating whenever I’m about to write a post.

So what now?.. how about some updates on my life? would that be entertaining?… oh well, who cares..

Home Again

Last month is definitely a big month for me… Everything happened so fast and boom! I’m back again in 1st BU *wide smile*… Last time, i posted something about losing hope and thinking of finding a new job.  But a couple of days later, I received a news that a project in 1st BU is in need of additional manpower, and that is actually the Part 2 / Version 2 of previous project that I was a part of.. so they got me from 3rd BU!

I broke the tradition, that’s what they say… but it’s a bittersweet feeling actually.  I’m happy that I’m back in 1st BU… but at the same time, I feel sad and I really miss B17. 😦

Now at CSIP2, I’m doing stuff that I really missed doing when I was in Denso (3rd BU)… Coding, DD documents, OT, freedom to use my cp, music during breaktime (breaktime daw oh?!), etc.  I can say that I’m really at ease here.

TV Series (extra)

It’s also a crazy month for TV Series that I’ve been following.  And I think this year, I’m watching a lot of em.

Amazing Race 17.  Finale na next week.  And I must say, I love the remaining 4 teams there.. yeah even Nick and Vicky. Pasaway lang talaga si Nick.  I love the fact that the strong teams made it to the finale (or final 4)… I love Jill and Thomas, they are very cool and relax during the race.  Same thing with the doctors Nat and Kat.  They are really nice and pretty strong.  If ever they win, they will be the first all-girl team winner of TAR.  The hosts are okay too, though medyo hyper and pushy si Brooke.  It’s really exciting.  I really hope Jill and Thomas or Nat and Kat will win the race!

Amazing Race Asia 4.  Another show that is about to end next week! A lil sad that the other Philippine Team was eliminated last week.. sayang.. 2 representatives sana yung Philippines, which means bigger chance of winning the race! sigh.. Rich and Rich is still there.. so there is still hope.  It’s been my first time to finish a season of TARA. Ok naman pala sya 😉

Survivor Nicaragua. Not really a great season. Naonka annoys me so much.  Good thing she already quit the game.  Happy that Brenda is out, I dont like the fact She and Sash controls the tribe… too predictable.  I’m starting to like Holly and Benry.  Seriously, I still don’t know who to root for this season.  Bahala na sila.  I’m still waiting for more shocking twists.

Glee. I’ve been loving the episodes of Glee these past few weeks.  From Charice’s appearance, Britney episode, Kurt’s emotional version of I wanna hold your hand, Teenage Dream cover, Girls mash-up perf, Will and Beiste’s kissing scene, Gwyneth Paltrow’s guesting (and her Forget You performance), the wedding march song, Brittany and Mike’s dance routine on Sectionals…. really love all of these things.  Glee’s episodes are getting better and better.  Can’t wait for more!

Avatar Series.  I’m done with Book 1 and Book 2.  I’m halfway through with Book 3. Sobrang bitin.. I wish i have the complete season na. haaaaays. Oh and btw, I really love Top!

And now I still need to catch up with Hellcats and The Walking Dead.  Will definitely do that on christmas vacation… that is, if i have that break. 🙂

Anong petsa na!?
