January 2012

January has been my busiest month so far!! Ang daming nangyari, and ang dami kong nagawa, nakilala, at naexperience.

Work

So far, my career is doing well. Lots of studying going on, so many preparations. At ngayun, nafifeel ko na ang pressure ng pagiging leader. Waaah.  Scheduling, delagation of tasks, training, reservation, technical support, code review… unti unti na akong sinasabak sa real work… medyo nakakakaba pa rin, and misan para kulang pa talaga skills ko.  But I gotta do it.

Then may mga new members kami, and happy naman kasi dumami na ang department namin. Now I’m training them and medyo pressure din talaga, lalo na pag nagtatanong na sila Lottie at Mark, tapos di ako sure sa sagot ko. Nakakahiya. So I need to make an effort talaga.

And my tardiness this month? WOW. May katumbas ng love letter! Huhuhu. Living the title of Filipino Time’s Person of The Year!

Health

I’m happy that I could say that I’m pretty healthy this month. No major sickness, though my weight is really bothering me hehe. Really need to gain weight so that I’ll feel good about myself.  Other than that, my root canal appointments with my dentist is still on going. Sabi nya mga 5 sessions pa siguro. waaaaah dami pa pala.

Love life

next.

Twitter

Again, my TT (twitter timeline) is crazier than ever! Following this new set of new rushers will really shake your TT! Ang hahyper nila… but I can still handle it.  And in just one month, I already gained 150+ new followers. Wow! Sana lang lahat sila nakikipaginteract sakin diba? 😛 But again, thank you! 🙂

Temple Run

the newest addiction! This is a new app on iOS and I’m sooo loving this game! Sobrang nakakaadik, to the point na kahit nasaan ako, I’m playing it. Napapahiga pa ako pag nagslide na yung character haha.

Path

This is the new community I discovered last year and I could say that I’m loving it more and more. Ngayun nalaman ko na kung pano ilink ang Path moments sa Twitter, FB at Foursquare.  At naayos na rin ang pag sleep at pag wake up ko. Yay! So many achievements lol… and few more friends to go, mapupuno na rin ako.. Though I dont wanna go to that point.  Hirap mamili ng aalisin eh pag puno na.

EBs/Instameets

And this month, I just had 9 EBs/Instameets!! Ang dami! Ako na ang may social life LOL.  It was hell fun! I met a lot of new friends and all of them are awesome! My memorable moments for this month are:

1. Despedida Inumanyt and Instacoffee with Sarci and the gang

2. Dinner with Kite and Rushers (ang sapilitang pagpiga sakin lol)

3. Videoke with SMB for Ron’s birthday

4. Instameet with Mitch sa RX

5. Dinner with Eric/Efsalo and IG friends

6. Birthday Party of Eric/Efsalo

7. Chinese New Year EB

8. TMR Book Signing!!!!

9. Inuman/Coffee/Videoke for April’s Despedida with our IG friends

 

It was one hell of a month!! So fun!! Here’s wishing that the rest of my 2012 will be like this! Fun, Epic, Memorable!

Oscar Dela Hopia

2002 or 2004. Dahil sa pagkahilig ko sa music, naisipan kong makinig sa radio araw-araw. Bumili ng mga songhits. At kumanta-kanta (lol). Then natiyempuhan ko ang The Morning Rush with Chico and Delamar. At ayun na.

Hindi lang dahil sa music kaya ako nahook sa show.. Pati na rin sa makukulit na top10 nila at informative conversations nila. Then sinubukan ko ding magtext.  First time ko yun… nagbaka sakali na mababasa sa radio. That was my birthday, 200* something. And when they read my message, tumamblig ako sa tuwa. At ayun na, nagsimula na ang kaadikan. 

Hanggang sa nagcollege na ako. Sinimulan ko ng magpasa ng entries sa top10. Jhun13 pa ako nun. At pag sinuswerte, nakakapasok naman sa top10. Iba yung feeling eh. And I did the next move. Hinanap ko sila sa internet. Nakita ko ang mumunting forum ng mga rushers. Nakigulo ako at nakisaya sa kanila. Hanggang sa dumating yung time na nagkaroon na ng EB. Oct 2007. Nameet ko na sila CnD!!!! At ayun, buwan buwan na ang pasama ko sa mga Rushers.

Then came Dec 8 2008.  Sa di malamang kadahilanan, nagpalit ako ng codename. Oscar Dela Hopia. At nagsimula na ang di ko inakalang mangyayari sa buhay ko. NAAAKS!!! :))

Dahil yata sa codename na to, napadalas ang pagpasok ko sa top10… at maraming naaliw sa akin. Yata. At ayun, parang instant popularity ang nangyari. Oo na, aaminin ko na sikat talaga yung codename na nagamit ko. Hindi din ako makapaniwala na ganun ang mangyayari.

Yung tipong makakatanggap ka ng DM o private message sa fb, saying “lagi kitang naririnig sa tmr”.. “nakakatuwa codename mo”.. “ikaw lagi nasa top10”.. “ang cute mo pala” (ok joke lang yan).. nakakataba ng puso!! 

Tapos ngayun, nagpublish na ng book ang TMR.. and sa gulat ko talaga, hongdomi kong entries. 😀 Nakakaoverwhelm talaga.. never ko naman inexpect na sa pagpapalit ng codename eh magiging ganito. So thankful na rin kasi dahil dito, madami akong nakilala, madami akong naging kaibigan, at madami akong naging pans! LOL (pagbigyan na, blog ko to :P)

Happy Anniversary Oscar Dela Hopia!!!

The Morning Rush. Happy 15th Anniversary!!

Last Friday (July 8), my favorite morning radio show, The Morning Rush w/ Chico and Delamar, celebrated their 15th anniversary.  Yes, it’s been that long that they’ve been making us smile and crazy every morning.  Then last saturday, they gathered all the rushers in CBTL, Ortigas to celebrate this momentous event.

I’ve been listening to them since 2002… but I’ve heard about them before pa. I can still remember that time.. when me and my kuya were so bored one morning, and we decided to surf the radio.  And we found them on KCFM. We listened to them a couple of days more, until they announced that it was their last show!… I lost them for a couple of years.. and when I was already in College, I found them again, on RX.  Since then, I was hooked!… I joined the forum of the rushers and found a lot of new friends.. I changed my codename, and blam! The rest is history..

The event last Saturday was jam packed despite the rain.  It was nice watching them live (haha though I’ve seen them live a lot of times na).  There were a lot of people, and it’s so nice because I saw a lot of people that I’ve been interacting with over Twitter.  There were also a lot of people saying “hi” to me, telling me that they finally met me. It was such a nice feeling!!! #celebrity

And one of the things that we’ve been waiting for that day is the announcement of the “large reveal”.  We were so happy and excited when they announced that they will be releasing a book!! A compilation of the Top Ten, in celebration of their 15th anniversary! 😀 (check it out here).

It was a fun-filled morning! And I’m looking forward for the Book Launch, and for the next EB! ^_^

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.

jaraaaaaan..

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 😉 )

Ondoy! oh boy!

After 6 days.. hindi ko pa rin malilimutan yung nangyari sa amin that Saturday…

09.26.2009

Rushers’ EB nun. Excited kaming lahat na pumunta, looking forward to meet the newbies (and oldies) na first time na mag-e-EB. Though the night before that day, hindi na maganda yung weather. Stephen even texted me na magraindance na nga ako para huminto ulan bukas. But I thought, and I hoped, na bukas medyo gaganda rin yung panahon.

When I woke up, patuloy pa rin sa pagulan.. though mahina na sya. Nagising pa ako in time, since ayaw akong gisingin ng mom ko kasi nga gagala lang daw ako.. mag-effort daw akong gumising ng maaga mag-isa. So ayun nga. Nag-almusal ako while listening to RX.. and yes, habang kumakain ng breakfast, I tried the raindance, hoping magkakaepek yun. 😛

Humina naman yung ulan when I left the house. I arrived at McDo strata and andun na sina Astroboy, Treiz, Doraemon, Elen.p, and Mr Perk were already there. Sunod-sunod na nagsidatingan yung iba. Sobrang lakas na ng ulan nung sumugod na kami sa RX Booth.

Sept 2009 EB

Sept 2009 EB

So ayun, tuloy pa rin ang EB. It was actually a fun morning with the rushers. Maraming nagpakabibo. And puro tawanan. Finally met Lucio (of the Antagonizers) and Elisha (of CX). Tapos may Yoga session with Delamar, Dance number from Mr. Perk, Harutan with Caramello, at marami pang iba. But in the middle of it all, nandun yung pag-aalala namin. The rain/storm outside is getting stronger, napostpone pa yung RX Stick-On, and bumaha na rin sa labas.

We stayed there until 1pm, and decided to leave para makapaglunch sa SM Mega. The rushers went there by batch. Me, Mr. Perk, Doraemon, and Bullet took a cab. Tapos the usual lunch, sa foodcourt. We waited for the other rushers to arrive. The lower ground floor of SM Mega was a little flooded.. wala masyadong tao. So ayun, naglunch na kami, more kwentuhan, more kulitan, and picture picture.

After ng lunch, some of the rushers decided to watch a movie, some of them decided to go home, kahit sobrang lakas pa rin ng ulan. Me, Purplerose, Doxie, Doraemon, Bullet, Stephensoul, Mr. Perk, Dru, and Caramello went to Starbucks para hintayin ang ibang rushers.

Around 6pm, nagkita-kita ulit kami. We decided na maghiwahiwalay na. Astroboy, Czarovic, Mojacko, Elen.p, and Eneri decided to go north. Doxie‘s dad and Trina‘s parents arrived to fetch them. So ang naiwan sa SM ay kami: me, purplerose and her hubby, Stephensoul, Mr. Perk, Benjai, Gab, Caramello, Merski, Baditz, and Bullet.

We went to JMT Bldng, sa office ni Mr. Perk, searching for decent place na pwedeng tuluyan. When we already got the needed info, we went to McDo El Pueblo to eat dinner. Then nalaman namin na sobrang worried sina Chico and Delle sa mga rushers. We were very touched sa pag-aalala nila. My family also called me up to check my status, and I just informed them that I’m safe there.

So tulad nga ng napag-usapan.. 10 of us (since Baditz decided to go home), went to this part of Pasig where lots of motel were located. YUP. We decided na it’s better to check-in in a motel (since fully booked na rin ang mga hotel sa Ortigas). Medyo nahirapan din kami sa paghahanap but eventually, nakakita din kami. Mariposa. whatta name!!

So yeah, that was my first time to enter a motel. Cool naman. Very clean and decent naman yung dating nya. Too bad we cant stay in one room so we divided ourselves into 5 groups. So I shared the room with Gab, para safe daw hehe. Buti naman at walang nangyari haha. We just watched I Am Legend sa HBO, and lots of music video sa MTV, hanggang sa makatulog na kami. We stayed there until 4am.

We went back to Ortigas Centre and ate breakfast at 7-11, with matching oldies music since Sunday na nun. Nagdispersed na kami after that, and sumabay na sa car ni Gab with purplerose & her hubby, Caramello, and merski.

Nakauwi ako ng house around 7pm. Medyo maputik yung labas, though everything looks normal. Nadatnan ko nalang yung mga peeps sa bahay na naglilimas na ng tubig sa loob ng house. Konting sermon lang then okay na. Brownout pa that time, pero around lunch time bumalik na yung electricity sa place namin.

It was really a memorable day, never thought that would happen to me. Though it was really a streesful day for everyone. Still thankful to God that nothing happened bad to all the rushers na kasama ko that time, and to my family din. I just hope na makarecover na ang lahat. 🙂

Hale, yeah!

Monday 08.10.09

Maaga akong umalis ng bahay that morning. We, some of my rusher friends, planned to meet at McDo Strata by 7am and go to the booth to visit C&D, and samahan na rin si mama rhix (purplerose) sa pagclaim nya ng prize nya.
I was a bit late, pero oks lang. Ria (LM) and Nyna (ang_manunusok) were already there. Then I finally met Mr. Perk!! One of the most hyperv rusher pagdating sa top 10 hehe  😛 We waited for Joe (specialist) and nung dumating na sya, diretso na kami sa booth.

IMG_3465
Ayun, picshuran ulet and waited for a couple of minutes para maabutan ang pagdating ni mama rhix. So when she arrived in the booth, as usual, picshuran ulet!

IMG_3469
Then Mr. Perk and I left the station before mag-9am since may work pa kami that day.  Good thing hindi ako nalate.. so pasok pa rin sa 11 months perfect attendance! (4 more months to go!).  It was a petiks day in the office.. puro DD update lang.. tapos ayun, nakikipagkulitan sa mga makukulit na texters..

yun ang building namin!! hehe

yun ang building namin!! hehe

Then later that day, nung lumabas na ako ng office, diretso ulit sa Emerald ave. and waited for Joe ulet sa baba ng building nila. We, some of my rusher friends ulet hehe, decided to watch the concert series of Hale (sa RX booth)!!

So tumambay muna kami sandali ni Joe sa Mcdo, konting kwentuhan.. then diretso sa booth since marami na daw yung mga fan girls na nakaabang dun. Good thing andun si Ria to save us the good spot.  When we arrived there, naabutan ko pa si EJ of Radio 1. Hi and Goodbye with him. Tapos andun na yung Hale!! nagrerehearse na sila for the concert series.. Never thought I would be that close with a popular band.. as in super close! and syempre malakas yung power ng friend kong si Ria, kabuddy nya yung mga members ng Hale! whoot.

IMG_3478
Then dumating din yung iba pa namin kasamang rushers na manood din. Like Stephen (Lost Soul) na hindi daw pupunta pero dumating pa rin (para makita si Fran), Ron (Mojacko) na naharass yata kay Ria (hehe), Benjai (bonita) na very excited makita ang kinababaliwan nyang si Champ, and Jobert (Czarovic) na mukhang kagalang-galang kahit tumatagaktak ang pawis.
IMG_3548

It was a FUN night!! though umalis agad si Joe kahit di pa masyadong nagstart yung CS. Panalo yung interview ni Governator sa Hale.. kulet talaga. Funny talaga ni Gino/Governator. Then syempre kinanta rin nila yung Bahay Kubo, which I consistently vote everyday.

Then after that, ang pinakahihintay ng lahat. Photo Ops!! Got the chance to have a picture with Champ. Tapos nakamayan ko din at nakawayan yung ibang members ng banda, Paolo, Roll, and Sheldan.

Natuwa rin ako that evening kasi kilala na ako ni Rico Robles hehe.. at kinamusta pa nya ko haha. aliw talaga sa codename ko. (thanks talaga to Joey De Leon).. Then Danielle is also there, and also broganic William (astrosuitor). 🙂

It was really a fun night. memorable concert series!! Hopefully maulit muli 🙂

Happy-Sad Holiday

08.05.2009. Burial of President Cory Aquino. It is a sad day for all of the filipinos. And the whole nation is mourning on this big loss. A Great President. A Great Woman. A Great Hero.

cory_aquino1

But some rushers, including me, chose to spent this holiday in a different way.  I preferred to spent this special day with the people who are now close my heart.

Early morning, I went to McDo Strata to met up with the rushers. Ria, Selwyn (SilverBullet), and the first-timer in EB, Raine, were already there. We hang out in a bit then went straight to the RX Booth, along with Stephen (ModernLostSoul) and Jobert (Czarovic) who arrived a lil late.

Cherry and Erna (Hellgirl) were already inside the booth when we entered the booth. Tapos dumating din sina JoeSpecialist with his nieces. Then nagkwentuhan, nagpicturan, and nagpormahan.. Then after a while, Gelli and her bf arrived, along with 3 more rushers, Strike (na sobrang hyper, shy daw?), ChristianRoi (na usper tahimik), and Mojacko (the new commercial quoter).

IMG_3364

Then more picturan naman with Gelli. And they played all our requests and read all our greets. super happy. Meryll of Radio 1 was also there. Then we decided to eat in Chowking and went back again in the RX booth!! I finally met Louie D. and Angel of Radio 1 up close. Though medyo may nangyaring kaganapan so we decided to leave the place earlier and headed to The Coffee Bean, Galleria.

We made tambay there in an enclosed area, which the SBOF proclaimed that it’ll be their headquarters. We waited there for Benjai Bonita, Badtz Maru, and Doraemon.. and Ria too. Then talked about certain things and more picture-pictures.

Then we saw Baditz, Aimee, and her boardmate walking in galleria so we invited them inside the Coffee Bean and took some pictures with them (or should i say took some pictures of czarovic and rawrgoesaimee.. ayeeee hihi).  After that, nahati na yung group. Naiwan ako with the whole bunch of SBOF and we ate the birthday cake of Ria sa foodcourt. Then konting kulitan pa, and ayun.. nag-uwian na.

from_jobert2

It was a fun day for us..or for me, at least. I spent my whole day with the rushers. And it’s a nice moment to treasure. naks.




Anong petsa na!?
