Missing Cebu

it’s been a month since I left the Queen City of the South.

I was one of the lucky ones to be deployed in Cebu last August.  At first, I was so excited because it’ll be my first time to work in a new environment, but scared at the same time because I’ll be away from home for a couple of months, and meeting and dealing with new people has never been an easy thing for me.

To my surprise, our (well, “my”) work there has been very light, and the people in our work are very nice.  I’m happy that I was assigned to PTM team under Ms. Arlie, and our project went really smooth. Then when I was transferred to Eval Team, I met Boss Rex,  Nins, Che, and others, and they’re all very nice.

Livin there in Cebu was really fun. I was able to learn the daily languages that are essential, like for travelling.  “Lugar lang” and “Palihog” were my overused words there 😀 .  Every weekend, when I’m so bored staying in our apartment, I used to go to Ayala Cebu or SM Cebu, watch movies, or just walk around.

We also had the chance to roam around Cebu.  I miss our trips to Moal Boal, Sto. Nino Church, Mr. A, Sutukil food places, Mactan Shrine, Magellan’s Cross, and our Island Hopping in Cebu! Yeah, it was work and leisure for us there!

I also miss the food places that we’ve tried there.. AA BBQ every night, Golden Cowrie, Chowabangga, Chicken Charlie, Casa Verde, and of course Jollibee, KFC, McDo and Shakeys hehe.

It was also a chance for me to meet some Cebu Rushers there.  I was able to meet and greet @dreivance and @giantumulad, and I also met up with Manila Rushers like Ina, Dru, Merl, and Kim!  It really felt like I was not that far from Manila.

There are other things that I really miss in Cebu.. the light traffic, the fresh environment, the gorgeous people, and a whole lot more.  Given the chance that I’ll be deployed again there, I’ll gladly take it and fly back there again.

Android!!!

On my three years of stay in my current company, I’ve been assigned to different projects.  Probably the major project that I had is CSIP.  I learned a lot on that proj.  Personality and Career growth, it all happened there.  But there was a point where I felt that I’m not moving on. That I’m stuck right there. And I craved for more.

Then news came.  I’m so happy when I learned that I will be transferred to Android Team!  Yes, we’re now developing Android applications… so cool, right? I felt hyper and energetic again… excited and nervous at the same time.  And now, I really feel that this is the avenue for me, to show my skills and leadership at the same time.  I just hope that everything will be smooth, and everything will go my way 🙂

Nang dahil kay Yoda…

Two weeks ago, I asked Yoda (via PimpOut Sat) if I’ll be promoted that week.  I was wishing for a “yes”, of course, but the toy answered “NO”.

Yes, he is JUST a toy.  But I’ve been asking him for so many times now, and he often got it right. And guess what, my latest question is not an exception.

Last Friday was the monthly announcement in our company.  My friends from 3rd BU joined me in my area and kept teasing me that I’m expecting the promotion.  I just laughed about it.  But I’ll be hypocrite if I’ll say I didn’t.  The announcement was over, and nothing happened for me.  Yoda got it right.

It hurts a bit, I admit.  But it’s okay.  I just really thought it’s the right time for me.  After all the PhilNITS thingy, those OTs and sacrifices on my last project, I really thought I had it already.  I did my best, but I think my best wasn’t good enough.

I just have to wait, I guess. Hopefully for a little time, and that time will eventually come.  I just have to be more pro-active, more patient, more eager, more energy, more happy. Mag Enervon Multivitamins.

PhilNITS passer

I really thought that taking the Computer Science as a course would spare me from Board Exam and Certifications. I was wrong.

Being an IT person is like being a student for the rest of you life. You keep on studying, and studying, and studying for new knowledge and ideas. And even though we don’t have Board Exams after graduating, there are still a lot of Certifications that you may (or you may not) take that will definitely serve as an advantage when applying for a job (or higher position).

One of these certifications is the PhilNITS exam.  I’ve already heard about this when I was still in College, and we were planning to take this, but a little afraid because we might not have enough knowledge to pass it.

Then now, I’m working in a Japanese company, I, again, encountered the PhilNITS exam.  It is one of the Certifications that our company is taking seriously.  I’ve tried joining the review class one time, I was accepted, but I failed during the last assessment.  I tried it again last year, but I was suddenly transferred to another department, so I stopped attending the review class.

Then this year, I tried it again.  I passed the assessment test for the review class.  I attended the review class everyday, but I couldn’t focus that much because of our busy on-going project.  My health problem also became a burden to me, so I lost all of my time for review.

The PhilNITS foundation conducted a seminar for the PhilNITS takers, and our company chose me and my officemate, Neph, to attend the said event.  We learned a lot of things there, and we were also surprised when they told us that there is a new topic on the upcoming exam!

So, the HR gave another assessment exam to determine those who are qualified to take the PhilNITS. Sadly, no one passed the exam. But our manager, Boss Mags, talked to me and boss rex. He told us that our scores are very near on the passing rate, so if we are very eager to review harder, he will allow us to take the PhilNITS exam.  It’s our call if we will take the risk or not.  There were only 2 weeks left before the exam, so we really need to give extra effort on the review.

March 27. Philippine Christian University. Exam day. The morning exam is not that hard, I must say.  I was expecting a lot of computations, but there were only few. whew. Afternoon exam is not that bad too.  No questions about networking, so I was so relieved! Haha.

Then we need to wait for 3 weeks or 1 month to know if we passed it or not. I kept on praying for a good result. Then one saturday, I decided to check out the website of PhilNITS foundation if there are any updates… then I saw the announcement “Congratulations !!! List of March 27, 2011 Philnits Exam Passers !!!!! SW is now called AP (Applied Information Technology exam) FE passers list Click Here!!!

I clicked the link and quickly searched for my name. And… WAAAAH!!!

I’m so happy with this new achievement, and I just really hope that I could live the expectations now that I’m a philnits passer 🙂

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. 🙂

great week (part 2)

yesssss may part 2!

And it seems like things are getting better and better… but.. oh well, let me just quickly glance at my awesome week with this post.

Karate Kiddos

Karate Kid

I watched this movie with my good friends, Edzcel and Ron.  At first, we really can’t decide what to watch that day.  Either Toy Story 3 or Karate Kid.  Pero mapilit si Ron.  He wants to watch TS3 in 3D, but there’s no available time that day.  So we end up watching this movie, at Podium Cinema.  That was my first time to watch in that movie house, and I must say, the ambiance is really impressive… like it’s so sashaaal… there were only few seats, and the screen and perfectly placed in front of you.

I’m happy that we watched this movie.  It was really good.  Lot of funny moments, esp the mom.  She’s hilarious.  The drama and kilig factors are good, and the fight scenes are awesome.  I love the soundtrack, too.  Made me fall in love again with John Mayer’s Say.  And that song of K’Naan feat. Adam Levine.. i like it.

Corny Corner Prince

my request was featured again on Mixed Tape’s Corny Corner.  It was an old track from Richard Reynoso, Hindi Ko Kaya.  Christi said that she fell in love with the singer during that time, but agrees that the song is really corny. 😀

So i received a lot of reaction from my rx friends regarding my CC requests.  Corny it is! And I really like it when Triflernomore tweeted that I’m the “Corny Corner Prince“, as Kuya Joe is the King.  Whoa.  It’s definitely an honor for me hehe… I just can’t remember kung ilang requests na ko sa CC.  I just really enjoying requesting these songs… cringe fest talaga, but we love it. 😀

Knight and Day Preem

Knight and Day

my 2nd movie for this week, but this time, it’s for free.  I was still undecided to whom I’ll give my extra tix.  I was supposed to give it to my officemate, but he needs two tickets.  So I decided to throw a contest over twitter, and Dru texted me first!

I logged out early that day.  I actually don’t know the exact venue.  Greenbelt 3.  It will be my first time, yet again.  Good thing Perk and Stephen were still at Jollibee, Glorietta… they saved me from being lost.

It was a lucky day, actually.  I won a Kaspersky Anti virus installer during the raffle.  And the movie is awesome.  Without me, With me.  It was fun!

Leadership & Badminton

I spent my whole friday at Sendai Conf Room, where our Leadership Seminar Training was held.  Boss Manny is a good speaker, ang daming kwento.. so I didn’t find the whole seminar that boring.. it was fun!  And the food is awesome, hehe.. that’s important, of course.  I’m just not sure right now if I’m ready… to be a leader.  But I must be.  That’s the only path I should take.

Then after that day, I went to Greenhills to play badminton with my rushers friends… feeling ko pagaling ako ng pagaling. Hahahaha! And we met jedi master and we played with him… we can tell na naghohold-back pa sya kasi nga newbies lang kami.. he’s definitely a pro in this game! 🙂

EB, New Friends, Food Trip

from cherry

Last saturday of the month.  EB again with the rushers!  And I didn’t realize until acer texted the duo that this was actually the 2nd Anniversary of Rusher’s Monthly EB!! whoa.. yeah, it has been that long that we’ve been meeting new people, make friends with them, losing some, gaining more.  It’s been 2 years!! *sniff sniff*

I was a little for this EB, but I’m glad that there were new (and old faces) when I arrived at the booth.  Saw kuya acer, kuya dhey, and kuya rc again.  Plus merski and reichen.  And there are new faces like catleya, yazrei, and asnallar’s friends.  We didn’t stay long and we went to SM megamall to have our lunch.  This time, we went to Kenny Rogers!! level up ng konti!

then after that, we went to Secret Recipe… para kumain ulit! 😀 On our way there, we met another fellow rusher, Ninya Baler.  I knew her as JDV’s friend.  Glad to finally meet her.  So ayun nga, we went to Secret Recipe… sinamahan ang Wedding Wizards on their business meeting.  I ordered this yummy brownies, and it tastes heaven!

Toy Story 3… *sobs*

Toy Story 3

Then after our food trip, we (me, ron, rina, selwyn, paul and ninya) watched Toy Story 3.  I heard that a lot of the people are loving this third installment of Toy Story… but I didn’t expect a lot.

We were just in time… and my oh my.. the movie is sooo freakin awesome.  Pixar FTW.  It will teach you a lot of things… Appreciation, Letting Go, and… ummm.. ok na yun, marami na yang 2. :))  This is probably one of the best movies this year… and for goodnesssake, it made me cry 3 times!!!!

~~~~~

That was my great week… but I have this feeling that there might be a bad news next week… yeah, I’m being a pessimist right now. Sigh.  But I’ll still try to hope for the best… 🙂

Happy & Excited

Yesterday is so awesome.

I went to Makati Med Center to get the result of my x-ray.  I was really nervous while sitting there, waiting in front of the counter… I’ve been praying the whole day for a good result.. and when my name was called, I immediately approached the counter, and they handed me the film.

I nervously peeked at the paper where the result is written… and tadddaaa!! My lungs are clear. YEY!  So I went back to my doctor to get my clearance, and I went home with a big smile.

Finally, it’s time to go back to work.  I really missed the office, the aircon, the group, ate letty’s food, everything.

I just hope that next year, it won’t happen again! haaay.
