working. AGAIN. [07 Aug 2007|02:18pm]
4 days at work.  my usual routine in the morning:  internet and hot green tea in a starbucks cup.  that's the id holder from Virgin Mobile people.  the 1st client freebie.

work is okay so far.  the 1st 2 days were horrendous, the new hire trainers were airheads, not to mention STUPID. 

ICT policies include wearing business casual on Mondays-Thursday.  but if you're a VMU (Virgin Mobile USA) agent, you get to wear flipflops and jeans.  weeeee.

i still haven't fixed my schedule so i don't know how i'm gonna squeeze all my extra-curriculars in one day but good thing my body's cooperating in terms of my sleeping habits. 

i'm gonna be on the production floor next week.  feels like my first customer call exactly a year ago.  i'm keeping my fingers crossed.

we have our own Dana Fairbanks. [21 Jul 2007|01:06pm]

one nenok-ed pic from Monics and it now turns into an open letter for Showtime and the makers of the L word to bring back Dana in Season 5.

bring back Dana or else..

my friend Monics will be the reincarnated Dana Fairbanks but instead of a tennis player, she'll be an FA beating the crap out of demanding patrons with her handy dandy water pitcher.

i love you kicks, see you tomorrow! :D


"sugeeeeeeeeeeee~"

today. [12 Jul 2007|01:20pm]

Scorpio

More than any other day this week, today is a very good day to get what you want.

- says my Friendster horoscope.  since when did i start believing in horoscopes anyway?  nyahaha.

anyway, i got interviewed by phone a while ago.  i'm scheduled for an interview today at 2pm. (i guess i won't be working out and going Belly Dancing later at 12pm.)  i told Zaq i'll cave in to ICT Riverbanks if i don't hear anything from the companies that i applied for in Jobstreet.

i love love love Body Jam 41.  weeeeeee.  i adore Leo - you beautiful weirdo.  you were 15 minutes late but it's okay.  i sprained my ankle, yet again, a while ago while dancing and landed on my ass.  good thing no one noticed. hahaha. 

"sugeeeeeeeeeeee~"

stress-free please. [11 Jul 2007|12:29pm]
NCLEX testing will now be offered in Manila.  wooohooooo.  okay, we won't have to go abroad for the test but considering the humongous amount of money that we'll be throwing away to take the test, i might as well take it here.  i hate hate hate hate the stress that comes along with hotel accomodations, flight schedules, etc.  i love love love fixing papers and stuff but when something's gone awry (which, in our case - a party of 8, is inevitable) i really don't like problem solving matters that don't involve answering dosage and solutions questions.

it makes me a little sad though since the Saipan trip is supposed to be our 1st kada out-of-the-country escapade but i guess there's a time for everything.  i can still wait. 

on the other hand, i'm still job-hunting.  interview appointments aren't lined up unlike 2 weeks ago but hey, i'm enjoying my 12-hour sleep everyday, nobody's complaining.  :)

last Monday, we worked out at Fitness First Greenhills.  i have this mini-plan - to workout in every Fitness First branch.  nyahahaha.  the Krispy Kreme store right beside the gym is a weight watcher's nightmare.  once you get out of your car, you could already smell the hot, glazed doughnut, especially made to settle on your hips and thighs.

FF Greenhills
i likey likey:
  • spacious carpeted lounging room
  • big big big dressing room
  • fantabulous steam room
  • the showers
  • wooden dance floors and the mirrors
  • body care spa (we'll try this later)
i hate:
  • flat softdrinks (where's the fizz?)
  • sound system
  • body jam instructor - details below
  • not-so-big dance area
  • not enough hair dryers
there was this Body Jam intructor named RA.  Wot said he isn't a regular in FF Greenhills, he's from Manila.  i hated how he taught Body Jam.  he winks at his students.  ugh.  some of the older students were Chinese and he says "xie xie" and "wo ai ni" in the most absurd way, i wanted to smack him.  his gay antics weren't funny either.   he gets tired easily, i craved the panting dog thing that i do during the workout.

i wouldn't replace Mel (my crush), Laqui (i love love love this gay dude), Leo (the Thursday morning instructor), and Sari (though Body Jam looks like Pole Dancing 101 when she's teaching).  OT:  i'm crushing on Mon, the Body Combat instructor.  hahaha.

"sugeeeeeeeeeeee~"

1 day before Saturday. [28 Jun 2007|08:47am]
my 10 for today.

1.  my job interview ended up on a sour note.  well, for starters, i didn't get to the interview part.  gave my resume to the receptionist then she made me answer a questionnaire of some sort.  like, identify your strengths and weakness kind of shit.  i arrived at 9:30am and waited for my name to be called.  i was irritable, hungry, and really really pissed off because it was frickin' far from my place.  12pm came, the fucking receptionist and the other staff who called applicants for interview, grabbed their purses and headed to the elevator to take their lunch.  i snapped.  i looked for someone who looked like she's part of the HR staff, told her that i'm gonna go and pretended that i'm scheduled for another interview in the afternoon.  i stomped my clickety heels (because that fucking receptionist told me to come in my business attire, fuck) and marched out the door.

2.  i WANT a job but i'm not that DESPERATE.  i'm not willing to go to the ends of the earth just to earn a call center basic salary.  i WILL NOT wear a business attire and make-up so i can look presentable infront of the COMPUTER.  i hate BLAZERS.  and the last thing that i want is to PLEASE a DOCTOR.  nurses have been considered as doctors' maids in this country and i refuse to be one, hospital or non-hospital setting.  the MD in their name doesn't give them the right to have their asses kissed.

3.  my baby Shane doesn't poop in the house anymore.  yay.  toilet training done.  we still have to work on the peeing on any fabric stunt she makes. 

4.  i'm in the Oguri Shun episode in Gokusen.  he's really ugly in this series.  aside from the blond hair i've previously mentioned, he talks like a retard much like his role in Summer Snow.  MatsuJun's wisps of hair is da bomb.  ahahaha.

5.  didn't work out today.  body combat yesterday but surprisingly, my body didn't hurt that much.  hala, i'm turning beefy!  :)  gonna try belly dancing tomorrow.  ahahaha.

6.  KFC's chicken garlic steak is fantabulous!  toothbrushing right after the meal is a must, if you don't want the garlicky taste to linger in your mouth for hours.

7.  pancit canton = comfort food.

8.  "results are out" rumors are starting to fly.  a fellow applicant told me she heard that it'll be released on July 21, Sunday.  my toes and fingers are still crossed.

9.  one way to meet new people:  job interviews.  i've talked to a lot of new and interesting people more on my way to job interviews compared to when i was in school.  only problem is, once i turn my back on my NFF (newfound friend), i always forget his/her name.  it's like i get an ECT when i turn my head.

10.  i need to buy new cross-trainers.  :(

Wednesday. [26 Jun 2007|02:03pm]
i can't, for the life of me, understand why everytime i click on the post button and choose blog, and the white box is ready to be filled up with words, i just freeze and stare.  the things that i plan to write about goes flying out of the window.  brain drain?  preoccupied?  anxiety attack?

i'll make a list instead.  just like the meme.

1.  i'll be having job interviews tomorrow.  i posted my resume last night and there were two interview invitations when i checked this afternoon.  then my mom said somebody from a company called when i wasn't home.  the amazing power of the internet.  i don't have to be a walk-in applicant and hear "we'll call you."

2.  worked out until my legs fell off.  i hope i could still walk properly tomorrow.

3.  i don't understand why it has to go through someone.  can't you ask me directly?  i'm not mad.  more like puzzled.  i don't bite and i'm sure you know i'd be more than happy to do it for you.

4.  i'm watching Gokusen, finally.  i like young MatsuJun.  no acne scars, love the long hair.  i hate Oguri Shun here.  he looks like a kid who experimented with Agua Oxenada on his hair.

5.  Saturday.  weeeeeee.  i hope i don't have work on that day.

6.  Shane doesn't like Vitality High Energy.  i've been trying to mix this in her food (i'm considering shifting to this brand since it's cheaper, hehe.)  but i could tell she hates it.  She finishes the food only if she doesn't have a choice.  i guess i'm stuck with Eukanuba until she's 6 months old.

7.  i know it's old but i'm loving No Doubt's Running.  :D

8.  REMEMBER:  you're gonna be walking tomorrow, Pot.  no more high heels please.  - your feet.

9.  satisfied my dimsum craving a while ago at Dimsum & Dumplings.  they're ridiculously priced but insanely delicious.  beats those P10/3 pcs siomai at UST Concepcion St.  but then again, P10 is enough if you want to taste some cardboard-tasting molo wrap compared to P60 worth of the DnD logo.

10.  i didn't like Bob Ong's latest book "Macarthur".  i was expecting his usual quirky anecdotes like in ABA, Hudas, and Bakit but i didn't get my fill on this one.  Much like his Gubat, it's more of social awareness.  i appreciate his effort to insert his makabayang Pilipino ideas, but i need to laugh, man.  The world is serious as it is, i don't need something to remind me to feel sorry for my country.

Bossing and Wot in Marikina [24 Jun 2007|12:24pm]

Jen's drink.  the barista had the nerve to ask her if it's with a G or a J.  wow.  the baristas in Starbucks Marquinton are flipped, i tell you.

saw Bossing's new ride today.  glad that Marikina's the farthest that his new toy has gone so far.  hehe. 

fun fun fun day with dogs.  didn't see a sharpei though, that's one of my favorite breeds.  adored the Chow Chows.  i can already imagine one sleeping beside me and drowning me in drool.

then went to Rockwell with OyoBoy.  he received an earful from me since we just checked out the Arena goods and that's it.  he had to drag me to that place just to check out trunks, hoping that he'll at least get a brochure that he can show to his team mates.  but no, that was the only time he remembered to ask a senior team member if that's the place where he'll get it from.  AND IT WAS THE WRONG PLACE.  ugh.

haaay, athletes.  TSK.

"sugeeeeeeeeeeee~"

bad idea. [18 Jun 2007|02:06pm]
watching Norbit right now while downloading Casanova.

a friendly advice to friends:  NEVER watch an Eddie Murphy movie at 2am with your sleeping parents 5 feet away from you.  my lips and cheeks almost bled because of biting. 


"sugeeeeeeeeeeee~"

private. [16 Jun 2007|08:51am]
kept all my pictures and almost all of my blog entries as contacts' access only.  boo-hoo to those who've been lurking here.  (yes, kayo yun.  my mother's relatives.)

sino ka, cutiedemonie?  sinuyod mo yung blog ko ah. 

mahirap nang madaming fans.  ahahahahahahaha.

no more freeloaders.  i hope.

bye!


"sugeeeeeeeeeeee~"

disgusting. [14 Jun 2007|01:35pm]
i just stepped on a mouse.  and killed it.  it was very unfortunate for him to experience the wrath of my foot especially when i'm rushing on my way to the bathroom because i have to pee.

i REALLY have to lose weight. 

sigh.

"sugeeeeeeeeeeee~"

hindi ako natutuwa. [12 Jun 2007|01:52pm]

hindi siya big deal.  wala akong pakialam dahil iyo yan, karapatan mo yan.  pero hindi nakakatuwa.  ginawa iyon para sa atin lang, wala dapat na nakakakita, walang nakakaalam.  pero ipinakita at ipinagkalat mo pa din. 

inaantok na ako pero galit ako.  parang nananadya ka pa.  umiiwas na ako.  utang na loob, para wala na lang gulo.  ako na yung nagpaparaya.  naaapektuhan na yung iba pero walang silbi ang kausapin ka pa dahil alam ko namang walang mangyayari at magsasayang lang ako ng oras.

nagpipigil lang ako pero hindi ko na talaga matiis.

as i face another BATTLE. [09 Jun 2007|04:54pm]
i have 20 mins left before i leave for the Nursing Boards.  again.  as i re-enact everything that i did exactly 1 year ago, i still find myself in awe of the things that have passed and how i'm back at the same exact point that started it all.

my battle song's playing.  Fushigi Yuugi's Shiawase Ni Narou Ne.  everytime i play this song, i am somehow pacified and assured that everything will be alright and whatever happens, i'm still gonna find my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

now as i go and take another test, i look back at all the people who have patted my back, offered support, and gave me genuine smiles.  i remember the faces of every important person in my life who have sacrificed a part of themselves just to take me to where i am right now.

Lolo and Lola, once again i ask for your help.

Lord God, show me the way.  let me be what You want me to be.  i lift up everything to You.

best friends, classmates, fellow nurses:  Good Luck.

fight, fight, fight!

Burke's vow. [06 Jun 2007|06:23pm]
PRESTON: "Cristina, I could promise to hold you, and to cherish you. I could promise to be there, in sickness and in health. I could say till death do us part. But I won't. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope. I do not stand here on my wedding day optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic. I am not hopeful. I am sure. I am steady. I'm a heart man. Take 'em apart, put 'em back together, hold them in my hands. I am a heart man. So this, I am sure. You are my partner. My lover. My very best friend. My heart. My heart beats for you. And on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this. I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands, I promise you... me."


damn.

*Pot spontaneously combusts.*

pain. white-hot, searing pain. [31 May 2007|11:46am]
i finally attended some gym classes in Fitness First.  i was too "shy" to go in by myself.  hehe.   i tried Body Jam last Monday and it was great.  a little dancing and not too hip-hop-py unlike in Gold's.  great looking instructor (which was a girl btw - hell yeah, i checked her out.  hahaha.)  the next day, my legs felt like they're gonna fall off and sitting on the toilet bowl was a chore.

Tuesday night - our house was declared as a state of calamity because once again, the murky waters of the streets paid a visit.  no choice but to wait it out.  my dad noticed that i was talking through the whole cleaning thing and watching them do it 'coz as useless as i can be at times, i really can't squat because my legs were unavailable.

Wednesday:  i tried Body Combat this time.  it was supposed to start at 5pm but i didn't know that there was this special on the Body Combat training that day so i waited for a full hour.  when it finally did start, i was doing okay but an hour later, i was beginning to wonder why the workout doesn't seem to decrease in intensity.  every after a song's done, i wait for the cool down but then another pumped-up beat comes blasting out of the speakers.  and i noticed that there were 7 or 8 trainers and they were teaching in shifts, some sat on the sides after their "set" while we looked like toddlers jumping up and down inside a ball pool.  so exactly at 7pm, i quit.  gave my ears a rest too, i think my 3 little bones got their own beating yesterday.

today, i feel like there's 2 lead-filled sacks hanging from my shoulders.  i can't even unhook my bra.  it really, really hurts.  :c

i'll try to unglue myself infront of the pc and go to Retro Groove tomorrow.  hehe.

my baby had her last vaccine shot and her anti-rabies today.  yay.  she's getting really big now, i'm gonna have to adjust her harness.  i now know her poop schedule more or less.  bought doggie bacon strips for a little operant conditioning.  haha.

i'm bored. [30 May 2007|05:26pm]
bored.  bored, bored, bored.  i'm bored.

instead of hitting the books, i unearthed my korean/chinese/japanese vcds and watched some movies.  looked for kilig episodes.  anything.

arrgh.  i can't think of anything to do.  i'm even running out of ideas on how to procrastinate.  as far as i know, that's where i'm good at.

now i'm watching the Maging Sino Ka Man's last episode in YouTube.

see?

i'm bored out of my wits.

before i get back to business. [27 May 2007|02:47pm]
checked out the new mall Trinoma yesterday despite Bossing's short notice.  Tet wanted to go but can't so we definitely are gonna go back there.  hehe.  after watching Pirates (which was great but i think was too long for my taste), we braved the MRT and the rain in that area just to look at the newly constructed mall even if there were only a handful of stores.

interiors were impressive, like a miniature Mall of Asia but way cooler gardens.  i missed the mist thingy and the catwalk that Wot and Seth took pictures of.  saw some restaurants that i've never even heard of before.  i give them another month to complete the damn thing, it still reeks of fresh paint.

IELTS:  i am never gonna take that damn thing again.  seriously.

1.  Written

so okay, i left the house at 5:30am.  i had to leave reeeeeeeaaaaally early since i don't know where Dusit Hotel is.  anyhoo, i found out that it was just a few meters away from Ayala MRT station.  sat at one of their lounges and fiddled with my phone and planner (btw, for a 5-star hotel, their tables are dirty.)

proctors were Filipinos.  i was expecting to see foreigners like in CGFNS.  the one speaking on the microphone had a funky English accent - she was eating her words.  "soshala" kuno.  hell, is that supposed to be our "model", IDP?  she was spewing out instructions too fast.

i had no problems with the reading and listening parts but the writing was a bitch.  400 words in 1 hour?  using a pencil and writing in cursive nonetheless.  last part of the test - save the best for last, as they say.

2.  Speaking

a totally different venue.  i was 2 hours early so i decided to walk around Greenbelt 1.  ate at Teriyaki Boy (amazing tofu steak!  yumyum.)  my tummy was acting up so i "unloaded" in the ladies' room.  nyahahaha.

i was there at quarter to 3 (my appointment's 3:30pm) then the receptionist asked me if i want to be interviewed right at that moment.  i refused of course.  when my name was called, i was asked to go to room 5 and a chair was outside the door.  i couldn't sit still so i walked around and looked at the paper posted on every door.  ALL FILIPINO INTERVIEWERS.  bad news.  except for one whose surname was YAMAMOTO, but i'm not sure if she's really Japanese.  she had a first name that had a very Filipino ring to it.

anyway, so i was called.  i said "Good Afternoon." and the lady just nodded.  she asked me to sit, i sat.  when she turned on the recorder, she went into this jovial interviewer mood and rattled off questions one by one like a machine gun.  i did my best to answer each one without being too conscious of my grammar or if i'm saying sensible things.  what bugged me the most are the topics that we talked about.  from Marikina to restaurants to fashion.  FASHION!?!?!  i'm no Cecile Zamora.  i don't know anything about fashion.  she asked me what i thought about fashion, who wears what, media's role, etc.  one ridiculous thing i did (and i don't know if she noticed) was when she asked me a question that i knew completely nothing about, i said, "I HAVE NO IDEA.(nervous laugh followed by a pause) but.."  bam!  Elaine said that was okay but if you knew me, you'd know i was getting really irritated.

the interview ended as awkward as it started.  i left the building immediately, calling Elaine and RD so i can rant.  i was wearing 3-inch stilletos too (as i always do when i go to Makati - i'm stupid as that, yeah.)  i can't get it through my thick head that it's always a walkathon when you're in Makati.

anyway, if someone from IDP or BC comes across this blog entry, your reviewers say that speaking tests are recorded for you to know if the interviewer is doing the questioning properly.  WELL, my interviewer played back the interview that she did before mine so she can do more notes and grade the student.  i can clearly hear it from outside the room.  tsk. 

well, i'm expecting the worst.  i wanted a foreigner to interview me but i got a Filipino instead.  i'm praying for a band 9 but as soon as i saw the woman, that dream came flying out the window.  i still have my toes crossed until the 6th of June - when i get the grades.

IELTS written test: TODAY [23 May 2007|04:51pm]
Lolo, lend me your English skills.  take away all the distractions and let me focus for at least 3 hours.  give me a steady hand and allow my brain to absorb everything that i'll be reading. 

Lola, give me strength and courage.  lend me your ability to express yourself freely.  let my ideas come out with ease and be expressed through written words.

Lord God, my Saviour and Redeemer, i pray for my Lolo and Lola.  i lift up everything to You today.  let Your will be done.

To God be the glory.


FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT!
