PUJ strike!

Posted on Jun 30, 2008 under blahs, current events, life in the office | No Comment
I woke up this morning to a text message my officemate sent. She said that public utility jeepneys are on strike. How would I come to work? Get a taxi? Or will I just be absent? The latter is very much a tempting option however i can’t be absent. I have to be at work and get things done. I got up and got ready to leave. True enough, the roads aree empty of PUJs. Private vehicles rule the streets. I finally was able to hail a cab after waiting for quite some time. Of course, during strikes, cabs are in demand and some drivers would even charge than usual. I was surprised to notice that starting from Fuente circle down to Lapulapu bridge, traffic was congested! Why the heavy traffic when there are no jeepneys around? Unbelievable!

Here at work, administrators decided to allow everyone to go home as early as 5:30pm and offered some lift from hired busses. I’m still at work now, i hope the transport strike is over when i’m out.

how time flies so fast

Gosh… we’re halfway through the year! June is about to finish, here comes July!!! It’s sooo fast! Can you believe it? I can’t! I can’t believe that i’m celebrating my birthday again. It’s too quick! :P

My friend, Gugs, suggested i make my wishlist already. I just sighed. I know none of wishes is ever coming :( I’m not being pessimistic, i just know. Well, maybe not coming anytime soon. :)

I got simple wishes though… anything pink is all good for me. :)

World Class Profession Tag

Got this tag from Chikai


1. Copy and paste everything to a new post and Add your name next to your profession (or profession-to-be for undergrads) in the list. Make sure your name is linked to your blog/webbie.

Tip: For easier capture of links, paste into your blog using the “Visual” (for WP) and Compose (for Blogger) modes (not Edit HMTL or HTML).

2. If your profession is not in the list then simply add it to the correct alphabetical place. For example, if you want to add PLUMBER then it should be placed in between ONCOLOGIST and QUEEN.

3. Tag as many people as you can and witness how your technorati will explode!

For days, I have planned on going to the bank and pay my credit card bills but i never got around to it. I’m already 2 days overdue so i really tried my best to drop by the bank outside MEPZ today. I’m surprised to see that the door has the close signage on it. I thought it’s just the door to the ATM machines. I called my officemate and inquired where is the main door to the bank located? She let me realized that today is non banking day since it’s a holiday in Lapulapu City! Arrgghh! How can i not remember it? Yes, i made it to the bank only that i made it on the wrong day!

By the way, we’ll have the holiday on Friday instead. Palahi among office para long weekend mi.


Posted on Jun 16, 2008 under blahs, koreanovelas | 2 Comments
For the last couple of days, i’ve been hooked up to another Koreanovela entitled Lovers. It’s starred by one of my favorite Korean actresses, Kim Jung Eun. She also starred the hit series Lovers in Paris and Princess Lulu. Producer of Lovers is also the producer of Lovers in Paris and Lovers in Prague. I think Lovers is the last to the three series shoot outside Korea.

When i saw the commercial that it will be aired on local channel tv, i immediately look for a dvd copy of this series. And so i did find a copy and so is the start of my sleepless nights which just ended last Saturday. As usual, i kept on laughing and crying while watching the series. The subtitle wasn’t really good but i managed to hang on to the show ’till the last episode. Vivian (from her character in Lovers in Paris) never ceases to make me attached to her characters, lol!

Kim Jung Eun a.k.a Jackie when dubbed in Filipino

Lee Seo-jin a.k.a Jared when dubbed in Filipino

I’m not good in narrating but if you’re a Koreanovela fanatic like me, be sure not to miss Lovers. Basta, kilig nga makahilak nga ambot nga funny sab! :D Photos taken from

P.S. Lee Seo-jin is officially one of my Korean ‘fafas’! :P He’s really not that good looking (at least for me) but when you get to see him in the series. You’ll definitely fall for him! He has a nice physique and like almost all Korean male actors, he has the skin and fingernails that’s so nice, much more like of a woman’s.

changing layouts

Posted on Jun 12, 2008 under blahs | No Comment
I have so many things in mind on what my blogs should look but i really don’t have the time to do it. Arggh! I can’t wait to just design headers all day long and change everything. I’ll get to it sooner! I think my mind is spinning just thinking of all possible design of layouts and themes. Heheh! I really like doing graphics. I think it’s one of my dream jobs in the world. :)

just another boring weekend

Posted on Jun 09, 2008 under blahs, hotels in Cebu | No Comment
It’s a long weekend for us as the Independence Day holiday is moved to Monday instead of Thursday. I was just at home the whole time watching tv and sleeping. Last night, i went to Fuente to scout for some new dvd’s of Koreanovelas. I just bought one entitled Hana Kimi. I’m gonna watch it maybe next weekend yet. Today, I went to a former colleague’s new flat and checked out the place. I myself is looking for a room/apartment because i’m quite tired of commuting already. Her place was quite ok. Not too expensive, near to the main road and safe. The view at the rooftop is nice. In the corridor, she can she the Mactan old bridge and the nearby hotel.

I later went to GaiMac (as my officemates would call) and bought some cutty swimsuits. heheh… I rarely get to visit this department store around Lapulapu City.

I watched the movie Caregiver starred by Sharon Cuneta last Wednesday. I was with as usual my girl friends who gets to enjoy watching Filipino movies sometimes. I thought i was gonna cry buckets of tears all throughout the duration of the movie but i didn’t. I’ve seen the trailers often on TV and it seemed that everything was just it. I didn’t get to see more heartwarming melodramatic scenes other than those shown already in the commercials. But of course, the characters in the movie were all good. Maybe, if i haven’t watched the trailers that much, I would have appreciated the movie better. The thought of leaving your family to take care of other people is really painful when you think of it. This is the plight of most Filipinos. What’s your take? Be with your family in uptight situation or away from them but financially stable?
