new born, coffee, etc...

welcome JC
not much to say except to let the world know that my best friend already gave birth last monday to a healthy baby boy named Jomil Christopher (yeah, i already told her why do they have to combine their names, hehehe) anyway, havent seen the baby yet, but am planning to visit them this saturday. hopefully he got his looks after his mom (yes love your own, sorry emil)

2007 starbucks planner
finally i got my starbucks planner yesterday, its kinda bulky but it looks neat, hopefully it'll be filled up with good memories, hoping for the best this 2007. its not that 2006 was a bad year, it was quite good actually but then you always want to look for better things to come.

starbucks frappuccino are great but still i want to share with you my own special coffee recipe. i usually prepare my own coffee at home coz i want it to taste exactlly how i want it, i dont want it too sweet, i even prefer coffee without cream and i want it scalding hot. anyways this is my usual recipe but instead of adding sugar i top my coffee with marshmallows, the heat of the coffee gently melts the marshmallow giving it a frothy taste. try it and 'm sure you'll love it =)

oh havent i told you yet that i'm addicted to coffee? that coffee is like water to me and i cant live a day without a single cup of coffee? that i drink about 3-5 cups of coffee a day?

my bestfriend’s baby shower.
the initial plan was to held it at music21 last December 1 but due to conflicts of schedule we had to changed it, the venue would have been at the mother-to-be house at sta. mesa, but due to the excessive traffic my two friends got a brilliant idea to change the venue instead to DADS at megamall where we pigged out, of course. T’was fun, she got good gifts except that she already have the watch me grow frame from lisa, only consolation is she can hang both the frame in their bedroom and one in the living room, no one’s going to complain hehehe.
look at my bestfriend, she’s sooooo bigggg!

the chips beings serenaded

My niece’s baptismal
The ceremony took place at espiritu santo church, in attendance of course were her parents and the ninongs and ninangs, sans the beautiful tita who’s slaving in the kitchen, as if! Hehe actually I was just frying the lumpiang shanghai =) and as usual I burned my hands while frying. I really liked her baptismal dress; actually that was my baptismal dress! Cool huh, 28 year old dress on a 6month old baby.

hahaha i look like madonna and natalie portman! WOW!

Please don’t ask me

1. for direction. I have lived my entire life in manila but no I don’t know all the roads there is, yeah I’ve been working in makati for like 3 years now but I don’t know where the hell are such and such buildings. So if you’ll gonna ask me for direction, the answer is I don’t know, or if im gonna be brave enough to think that I know that particular place, be prepared to get lost. My sense of direction (or lack of it) is so pathetic. maybe I should wear a placard saying don’t ask for directions, im lost as well.. I cant count anymore how many times I got lost, irregardless if I have a map, I don’t know how to read a map. No matter if you tell me to go this, go left, then right, I’ll always get lost as you see I am already having a hard time trying to remember which is my left and which is my right.

2. for money. I may look like a million bucks but trust me I don’t have money. The stunning clothes im wearing are from ukay believe it or not. i’ve never bought a dress or shirt worth more than 800, why buy expensive stuff if you can buy beautiful stuff at ukay for 3 for 100 only. But as I’ve said I don’t have money, I’m having a hard time making ends meet, I’m just your ordinary working girl living from paycheck to paycheck.

3. about engineering stuff. I have no way of knowing stuff about roads, what does a signaling engineer does, how you're going to make this airport better, I’m not an engineer! I may know a lot of things but it doesn’t mean I know everything.

4. why I’m still single. I don’t know as well, maybe I’m just too picky, self sufficient, independent and loves freedom, or I’m just weird.

5. to stop smoking. It’s my choice and you cant do anything about it. If ever im gonna stop, its because I want to, not because somebody asked me to.

6. why I’m thin. To be honest, I don’t know. But based on my experience, whenever I say I don’t know, people always give me an answer/suggestion as to why im thin, so to stop them from guessing why Im thin I just say that my metabolism is so fast (actually that was one of the suggestion/asnwer that was given to me) why not use that word, it stops them from guessing, and it sounds scientifically cool.

7. why I’m beautiful. I was born a goddess. Don’t get envious now; just love me for being beautiful hahaha.

merry christmas!!!

i know it's still early to greet y'all but its only 25 days to go before Christmas! i love Christmas, its my favorite holiday of the year, even with all the hassles it brings like buying gifts and stuff (which reminds me i still have to do my christmas shopping) but these past few years i can't feel the spirit of christmas anymore. it seems that the christmas nowadays is different than when it used to be when i was still a kid, maybe its true that christmas is for kids only, but i want to feel that christmas feeling again.

here's the nativity scene located in front of Philippine Stock Exchange Building, reminds us not to forget what christmas is really all about.

digital coloring

i've been trying to learn coloring using photoshop since i've come across paige pooler's site. i so envy her for being able to color her doodles beautifully and she's such a very good artist. i wanted to learn how to do the trick and i've been visiting various sites for tutorial and frankly i'm having a hard time following since my knowledge in photoshop is so little, good thing bien is here to help me and pointed out the basics in digital coloring *sigh he'll be leaving soon... bien taught me the magic tools to bring out the colors i wanted or how to achieve those glossy look - burn and dodge tool!

anyways here's t first three images that i've tried coloring digitally, the raw images are from that i've downloaded, please dont laugh at them, i'm still trying to learn and i'm hoping that eventually i'll use my own doodle or sketches (if i can still remeber how to draw that is)

this first image is just using the powerful dodge and burn tools.
this one here is my first shot at the emboss feature, though i still have to learn how to cut images seamlessly, as you can see the edges are ragged.
i'm quite proud with this 3rd image her, how i love the embossed flower that hello kitty is holding.
if you have comments and suggestions on how i can improve please tell me, i'll appreaciate the help.
another artist that i really like is asya schween, her deviants are really great, try checking out her site, i wish i can produce a masterpiece like what she's doing, but as i've said there's still a lot to learn.

cool pic

ronato alcano

he certainly made his name big this time, and after this 2006 world pool championships his name has become a byword in every Filipino household… no longer in the shadow of his idol eferen bata reyes but a name on his own, in this one kind of a league of billards. Proving himself worthy of the title in showing his skill and superb talent in pool, and of course our lady luck never left his side. Congratulations to the volcano for a very well played game.

as what the formidable souquet said , he very well deserved this title, beating the bests in the world including bata and the 2005 world champ – wu chia ching.

world pool 2006

photo from

Waaaaa bata lost! Of course im talking about the magician, need I say more? The man doesn’t need any introduction at all. Stayed up till 1am to watch his fight with alcano, but too bad his luck didn’t came in out during the first 4 racks, missing some easy shots. Luck came in the middle of the match and got his usual stride to make a comeback but then missed again on those easy shots, urgghh! Anyways, that’s life and when you play billards, you should always have luck on your side to win the game. Besides alcano made a good fight, he’s actually good, even bata thinks so.

Here’s an excerpt of an interview from AZB with bata after his induction into the BCA Hall Of Fame (for the complete interview go

AZB: There are so many good players coming over to the states from the Phillippines. Who do you think is the next big star coming from there?

Efren: There are many young promising players in the Philippines like Lee Van Corteza, Dennis Orcullo and Warren Kiamco but of all the players, I think Ronnie Alcano is the one who has more or less adopted my style of play.

Anyways, since bata is out, im no longer sulking over the fact that I wasn’t able to buy tickets to the world pool for the quarter finals... I only wanted to watch it live because of bata but now, I’ll just watch the rest of the tournament on tv, its live on espn anyways, and I always gets the best seat at home =)

Before bata’s match, there was the jharome pena and steve davis match and I really enjoyed watching those two, especially their heartbreaking misses of the good shot (dang, these players always misses the easy ones… I wonder if they do it on purpose hehehe).

And I think the real highlight of that game was when davis made a foul by actually hitting on the 3 ball failing to see or actually forgetting that the 2 ball was still on the table. Davis is good and I really liked the way pena played with this veteran.

I wish goodluck to these 3 filipinos left in last 16: alcano, de luna, and luat. Cant make a forecast who’s going to win the tournament, haven’t actually watched those Taipei guys played, heard they’re good but still I wish that one of our 3 remaining bets won the finals this sunday.

hApPy HaLLoWeEn

We say Happy Halloween to anyone every end of October but do we know the history of this holiday? Kids donning costumes and doing the “trick or treat” stuff but why do we celebrate this tradition? We know why we celebrate Christmas, and those other holidays but do you know the history of Halloween?

Halloween's origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, if you’ve reading the Vampire chronicles by Anne Rice, it was on Samhain that Magnus was created… I’m getting ahead of myself again. Anyways back to Halloween’s history, 2,000 years ago the Celts celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31, they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future.

To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and attempted to tell each other's fortunes. When the celebration was over, they re-lit their hearth fires, which they had extinguished earlier that evening, from the sacred bonfire to help protect them during the coming winter.

By the 800s, the influence of Christianity had spread into Celtic lands. In the seventh century, Pope Boniface IV designated November 1 All Saints' Day, a time to honor saints and martyrs. It is widely believed today that the pope was attempting to replace the Celtic festival of the dead with a related, but church-sanctioned holiday. The celebration was also called All-hallows or All-hallowmas (from Middle English Alholowmesse meaning All Saints' Day) and the night before it, the night of Samhain, began to be called All-hallows Eve and, eventually, Halloween. Even later, in A.D. 1000, the church would make November 2 All Souls' Day, a day to honor the dead. For complete history of Halloween please click

Some story huh, but it gets you thinking that maybe it is true, that most of Christian’s tradition have originated or a spinoff of pagan beliefs.

I love reading. There are countless of stuff that I’ve got interested to and been fanatically doing for a certain period of time but that’s just it, the passion for that something or my fascination for it just dies. I just move on and try finding something else to do. But, if ever there is one thing in this world that I would never get tired of, it’s reading. Even if I’ll grow old, (if ever I’ll grow old at all) I’d still see myself reading, pouring in on any book, magazine, or any article that I could lay my hands on. From the moment I learned to read (my mother told me that I started reading at age 3 and never stopped asking for books with stories on it) I knew that I’ll love reading forever.

Books can bring you into a magical world of wonder; it lets you travel the whole world without leaving your seat. A book can isolate me, welcoming me inside a story and you’ll lost me in the pages… it doesn’t matter if I am in the center of a noisy crowd, all else becomes at stand still once I’m engrossed in a book… I’m encapsulated in that moment, where nothing else matters except the people and the location in my book. As what my beloved Lestat aptly said (from the Blackwood Farm novel) “…and books, they offer one hope -- that a whole universe might open up from between the covers, and faliing into that new universe, one is saved.”

after the storm

the sun is shining brightly today, as if the storm that we had yesterday noon was just a dream but every broken tree and debris in every street tells me that the typhoon was real. the whole of luzon was covered in darkness, because power lines were destroyed, luckily for us at caloocan we have electricity already when I woke up this morning, but the others are not so lucky coz they are still relying on generators and candles. some roads are fortunately getting passable after the flood but too sad, death toll is increasing due to landslides. a lot of people got injured and died because of those huge billboards (those people kept on talking about how dangerous these billboards are but not doing anything bout it, maybe they will now.. but that’s too late huh). that milenyo is the worst typhoon i’ve ever experienced in my life, it’s scary seeing the strong wind coupled with the rain bashing everything on its path… i still cant believe that a wind can actually break and uproot even the most sturdy looking tree. i was actually stupid enough to go to work yesterday even though it was declared as signal no. 3 in metro manila, and i even saw the satellite image of the storm covering the entire luzon prior to the announcement, kinda scary but experiencing the actual storm is actually scarier. it actually took me an hour from buendia to paseo due to flooded street and heavy traffic!

since our office is at the 14th floor, we can see that much what’s happening outside, trees falling, roofs lifted, just across our building is the paseo carpark and the parking booth, fully cemented collapsed in a nearby parked car, i pity whoever owns that car, and some of my officemates even saw a van toppled at valero street. you can hear the howling of the wind and it seems that our windows will break because of its strength. it was lunch time when the eye of the storm crosses metro manila, getting hungry, gina and i bravely went down to buy some food, at the ground floor, we’re like oh my god, it’s even scarier outside but that didn’t deter us going out since we’re really hungry, we opted to go to henlin since it’s the nearest just around the corner, but it was closed when we get there. no power, no nothing… what’s worse is that we even thought we’ll gonna die out there coz this strong wind just blew just when we we’re at the corner and our umbrella was turned upside down (so much for thinking that it was strong coz it was big) i even thought it will carry the two us down the road along with this huge chunk of tree that fell on the ground and got strewn right in the middle of the road. no choice but to go back to our building where it’s much safer, hungry and all and we just got ourselves wet.

back at the office, we learned that somehow, some of the windows got opened by the wind and a couple of rooms got beaten, one room’s ceiling even fell. anyways, with all the excitement that’s going on, we’re still hungry and the fear made us more hungry. since, it’s a desperate time, we took on desperate action, we actually raid the ref and check out what can be eaten, I even got a can of coke hahaha, we managed to eat leftover rice, tuna, and ate betsy’s tocino. empty stomach problem, solved!

next to our worries is how to get home, hr already declared halfday but we got work to do and a deadline to beat, why do i have to be so damned concerned, why oh why… anyways I stayed up till 4pm, monitoring what’s happening to the outside world through online radio, people were stranded, so i also figured better stay at the office and wait till the flood at least subside. figured I’d rather be home just in case it get worse again, finally decided to pack up and plan which route to take just in case. Darn, darn darn, why is it I don’t have my own car, anyways I’m pretty sure i will only get stuck in the rain if I have car anyways. the president of our company offered his home just in case we got stuck but I wish he just offered us a car and a driver (but that’s wishful thinking hehe). outside, the strong wind has stopped but it’s still raining and it seems to me that almost all the trees fell, actually the newly opened coffee bean store’s window got broken, and the park near pse looks like Jurassic park, it’s a mess…, luckily I was able to get a ride from pse to buendia but omg it took us more than an hour to reached buendia and I was getting hungry again. At buendia, I immediately crossed the street and bought bacon mushroom melt (yummy) at wendys for fear that it would take me another hour before I get home since the lrt is not operational as well. good thing there is this abad santos route fx and he just asked for 40pesos. we traveled along roxas boulevard and only one lane was passable since most of the trees fell of the road… it was too dark actually to see the extent of the damage… good thing there’s no traffic and it seems all the people are already home. so i got home safely but there’s no electricity, not much to do, but at least I’m home.

a friend forwarded these "laws" to me and i've kept 'em as my personal mantra


1. This too shall pass. Nothing stays the same. The only constant in life is change. With every decision we make, we initiate change. Even when we decide not to decide, life still goes on, and changes still occur. When we are in a state of discomfort, sadness, grief, or pain, we know that because life goes on, change will bring us some kind of relief. And because even comfort, happiness, and all good things also pass, we know that we need to appreciate and cherish each precious, fleeting moment.

2. Time heals. The timepiece of life never stops. Neither does it pause for those who celebrate, speed up for those who are impatient, nor slow down for those who fear tomorrow. Time ticks a regular rhythm that steadily brings new moments, new days, and new seasons. As time pushes forward, we take new steps, face new challenges, and create new opportunities. And as life goes on, we are forced to move past our episodes of disappointment, sorrow, or despair. More than anything else, time heals not just broken bones but broken hearts as well.

3. Ask and you shall receive. People won't know what you want unless you ask for it. Dreams and goals are just wishes until you act on them, and acting on them often requires that you ask for answers, for assistance, or for something tangible. It takes a lot of courage to ask for help, but when you come forward, only then will the world know what to give you. Just ask and know that miracles can happen.

4. You can have anything, but not everything. Life offers us infinite possibilities. With hard work, determination, and perseverance, we can achieve anything. If we are willing to pay the price and go the extra mile, we can have whatever our hearts desire. But no matter how hard we try, we can't have everything. Life is a balancing act of wins, losses, and trade-offs...we gain some and we lose some.

5. What goes around comes around. It's the universal law of nature: do to others what you want others to do to you, because whatever you sow, you reap; whatever you give, you get back ten-fold. It doesn't hurt to smile, or be kind, or extend a helping hand. You never know when or how, but every act of goodness always returns to the GIVER. Give one today and receive ten tomorrow

R.I.P. Mamay Pilo

I’ve been to San Juan, Batangas last weekend to attend Mamay Pilo’s funeral, and it was fun in a peculiar way… don’t get me wrong in here, I know that losing someone is painful and knowing that that someone is never coming back is worse but you have to accept that life is like that. Maybe, I can only say these things because I haven’t really experienced losing someone that I’m really close with and hopefully I won’t have to experience it in the near future.

Anyways, as I’ve said my visit to san juan was fun. Actually, it was like we didn’t visit a wake at all, the place had this fiesta atmosphere, maybe it's because most of my relatives were there and it became an instant reunion of sorts … maybe it’s because death brings people closer. But one thing is for sure, Mamay Pilo has lived his life to the fullest. He’s tall and thin just like his brothers (my grandfathers… I guess it runs in the blood, being tall and thin I mean), short white hair and he really looked outstanding when he and Nanay Pinay celebrated their golden wedding anniversary five years ago. I will always remember him as the lolo who can capture bayawak (iguanas). I can still recall those summer vacations and our visit to their house to look at his collection of iguanas. May this good old sturdy man rest in peace.

photographs... and more photographs

I’ve made the best of our 2 days stay in San Juan and took some photographs, mostly of flowers. Nice to be with nature and enjoy it’s natural beauty. Besides I’m a frustrated photographer J

Me and nasnip Rose went kuhol hunting (a big snail or what the French calls escargot). That’s us in the field hehehe... i'm getting used to photograph myself

Would you believe that these tiny things are eggs of snail? Love these pink eggs!

found out new things as well..., just look at this goat's eyes!!! i've always thought that pupils are circles in general but here is this goat glaring at me with his rectangular pupil

sitaw anyone? my first time to see sitaw from its vine, didnt know before that you have to pick it one by one, i thought they grow in bunch as what you see in the supermarket

the evil sore eyes

Its official, i have sore eye as confirmed by dr. zagala, though my conjunctivitis is still in the first stage. She prescribed me a steroid drop to prevent further inflammation of my eyes, I was like what? You want me to put steroid in my eyes!!!?? Well anyways, she said I should apply it 4x a day and if my right eye feels itchy too, I should put medication on it as well.

I already knew that I was going to have it coz mami Dorcas had the virus and infected me hehehe….so I was saying I already felt it coming coz when I woke up last Sunday morning my left eye feels different, it’s itchy and stingy at the same time, and yes lots of muta (that gummy yellowish secretion in the eye) and when I check myself in the mirror, my eyes are puffy and my left eye is pinkish. I was like, oh no and at the same time welcoming the virus coz it means leave from work hahaha. But after washing my face the redness is gone, so ok, I don’t have sore eyes pa pala, sayang! Hehehe.

So, even though I was feeling uncomfortable with my eyes I still went to the office yesterday, if only I haven’t had that weird dream I really would have filed sick leave. And I had to attend a meeting, and I was secretly wishing that they get infected as well, they have a good chance of getting the virus since we’re all cooped up in the conference room hahaha. But nothing happened.,, life goes on.

Anyways, I still went to the office today, need to finish something first for the project that we’re working on, and my “former boss”, as what he calls himself, came to my desk and ordered me to go and visit a doctor. I was like, I know I have it and I already know the remedies and what not but he insisted I should visit a doctor for antibiotics, etc… so ok, I was ordered and need to comply, besides what a good excuse to leave the office for an early lunch hehehe. but still I came back to the office, and they we’re like, omg don’t infect us, go home. Yeah right! Am not sure if I’ll be able to go to the office tomorrow… i’ll see through my reddish puffy eye

dragons and dinosaurs

Ever wonder if dragons and dinosaurs were still alive? What would you do if they still walk in this earth and crashes in on your backyard? Would you be scared of getting trampled or eaten? Or you’d be brave to hunt and cage them and locked them in a zoo? It’ll all be just ifs and hypothetical now, forever wondering how it would be… but I think it would be fun, just look at my nephews enjoying the company of these huge creatures.

Butterflies have always fascinated me, even as a child,… it holds mystical allure to me. I dunno why, but they remind me of fairies. Their colorful wings are so nice to look at… I used to draw butterflies a lot when I was a kid, you can play with the colors and they will still look fantastic. Unfortunately I am living in the city and butterflies are scarce as the trees, its really rare that you see a butterfly now. I only get a chance to see them when I’m at the province or when at a park.

That’s me in the Butterfly Garden at Subic some years back. They have different species of butterflies there and what’s so good is that the butterflies there seem to love camera, they even pose with you, I swear.

Butterfly watching is really fun, which reminds me I need to go to Luneta and visit the Orchidarium and Butterfly Pavilion, shame on me, the Orchidarium has been there for years and I haven’t visited it yet.

Just Kidding!!!

Have you smiled without any reason at all? Have you ever laughed out loud in a quiet room even though you are alone and no one’s talking to you… and people started staring at you as if you’re some kind of a looney. And when somebody brave enough to approach and ask you why you’re laughing you just shake yer head and smile (that just confirm their belief that you’re nuts)… well it does happen to me when I remember something really funny about something or someone, actually I even laugh at myself sometimes.

Guimaras Oil Spill - Plea for help

Last august 11, Petron’s Solar I oil tanker sank at Guimaras Island. The tanker was carrying 500,000 gallons of oil and it leaked about 50,000 gallons already. The oil spill has affected 200 kilometers of shoreline, damaging more than 1000 hectares of mangroves in the area. Needless to say that it’s a catastrophe and it would take at least a year to clean up the shores of Guimaras. But, its business as usual for Petron! It was reported that they are paying the locals just 200 pesos per day to clean up the mess they made… that’s a pittance on how much they earn and to think that these locals, mostly fishermen, were earning 500 bucks a day before the tragedy. Please sign this petition to let Petron be accountable to this tragedy.
