Overtime Galore...

... Pero fun naman!

sunny

Inaantok na ako, pero nagising ako sa mga lutang na banat ng office mate ko. Siguro nga puyat na din sya sa tatlong araw na sunod sunod na over time namin. Ang pasok namin is 8AM - 7PM from Monday - Thursday and 8AM - 5PM every Friday. At tatlong araw na kaming 12AM nakakapag-log out. Wow!

So ayun nga, bago lang kasi si office mate at nung unang mga months nya eh nasa galaan naman ako (work related naman!) At ito ang pinaka-favorite ko sa usapan namin na hindi ako makaget-over kaya kahit wala akong time magsulat ngayon, GO pa din ako.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Me: Office mate, anong grado ng eyes mo? (naka-salamin kasi sya)

Office mate: (seryoso ang mukha habang nagta-type sa keyboard) Lahat?

Me: (seryoso din) Oo, isama mo na yung grado nung third eye mo!

  • ** Kalokang girlie to, ilan kaya ang matang sinasalaminan nya, maiintindihan ko pa sana kung ang sinagot nya eh, "PAREHAS?". Huwaw! Nanlaki nga ang eyes ko don eh, hehehe.

Nagising ang diwa ko, kaya ko pang mag-OT hanggang bukas straight duty pa basta kasama ko si Office mate. :)

P.S.

Siguro hindi nakakatawa para sa iba, hindi talaga ako maka-move on dyan.
Pasensya na, mababaw lang :)

Muffin's First Lying Act... (Part 2)

rain

On the car, Im calling Muffin but he's not answering his phone. So i txted him that Im going out with Tin and the rest of my close friends.

7:15 PM
Fish Out of Water

Ako na lang ang hinihintay, yey! Grand Entrance. Winner!
Pagkalapit ko, Tin immediately snatched the paperbag Im holding which contains:

TOSTADOS, AS the name implies, are toasted strips of bread. However, prior to toasting, each slice is coated with a mixture of sugar and margarine. It is perfect with coffee, or as siding for spaghetti, or ice cream.

SALVARO is a wafer-thin, crisp-brown biscuit, shaped into an elongated oval, and approximately ten cms in length and four cms wide. It uses entirely indigenous ingredients such as coconut, shortening, sugar and flour.

OTAP is an oval-shaped, crispy treat, which has become a trademark of Cebu. It is approximately 9 ms in length, 4.5 cm wide and about half a cm thick. It is made of eggs, flour, shortening, sugar and margarine. Otap has a unique flaky texture, a distinctive sweetness, and an accent of burnt flavor to it, that places this product as among the very best provincial specialties in the country’s baking industry.

SUNFLOWER is a biscuit shaped after the flower with a diameter of 7.5 cm. It has a subtly distinct flavor and aroma evoked by the liquorice-flavored anise seeds that are strewn all over the biscuit’s surface.

HOJALDRES. One of the newest in the delicious product lines of Pinky’s Galletas, Hojaldres embodies the best characteristics of both a biscuit and cookie. Somewhat similar to”otap” in texture, but it is slightly more substantial. The hojaldres is approximately6 cms in diameter and about one cm thick. Its rich flavor and aroma and its crispiness and texture make hojaldres a much sought after treat from Pinky’s Galletas.

GALLETAS is the Spanish term for biscuit. This thin crispy treat comes in neatly wrapped packets of threes. Each biscuit is approximately 5.5 cms in diameter. Made of basic local ingredients in just the right quantities, galletas are subtle and simple, reserve in evoking a strong flavor, yet a delicious snack item that Filipinos love so much.

LINUNGAHAN. This miniature pie-shaped biscuit, approximately 5.5 cms in diameter, is basic enough in taste and texture to be a main snack item or dessert siding. The crunchy exterior “crust” surrounds a delightfully sweet brown filling with the added surprise of tiny sesame seeds. Its ingredients include flour, shortening, margarine, sugar, and salt.

ROSQUILLOS, on the other hand, has been a household name for many generations in Cebu for its denizens and visitors. Rosquillos is a circular cookie about half an inch with a hole at the center. It is a sweet delight made up of eggs, flour, shortening, sugar and margarine.

CHICHARON. Chicharon is a crispy deep-fried pork skin, flavored salty and hot. One may choose from two classifications: in the “special” pack, the chicharon has a little strip of pork fat that comes with the skin; the regular pack is purely skin. The chicharon has undergone a highly tedious process of cooking. It is deep fried, sometimes sun-dried or oil-drained, cooled, and reheated. The process is repeated from three to four times.

....... and dried mangoes of course! hehehe.

Tin: "Alam mo namang tatlo kami, bakit tig-iisa lang to?" Said Kristine Hazel na pinakatimawa sa tatlo, hehehe (peace Tin!)

Me: Meron pa sa kotse Miss, nakakahiya naman kasi sayo. Alam kong magrereklamo ka.

Bum: Hahaha! Si Kim pa, alam mo naman kahit saan makarating yan, meron tayong tatlo. (Me: love you Bum!)

Mika: Weeeee? May gitara Kim? Bwahaha!

Me: Oo meron, ihahampas ko sa'yo. Lukaret na to, papahirapan mo pa akong magdala. As if naman may musically inclined sa inyong tatlo.

Mika: Eh db maganda daw ang mga gitara sa Cebu?

Me: Kung idi-display mo lang naman sa bahay nyo, jan ka na lang bumili sa tabi tabi. Excess baggage ko pa yun. Autistic na to.

Bum: Mukhang may jetlag ka pa, Cebu ka lang naman galing ah? Hahaha!

Me: Sabog na naman ata tong si Mika eh, hehehe. Saka si Muffin, hindi nya sinasagot ang mga txt at tawag ko, hindi ako nakapagpaalam eh.

Tin: Baka busy lang? Imbyerna ka agad dyan.

Me: Eh....

...dumating na ang order namin.... Which is happy fiesta pala!

3 felafels with chilli humus, sweet chilli & garlic sauce,
6 large king prawns char grilled with sundried tomato pesto
char grilled chicken breast fillet with mustard dill sauce
Smoked salmon with mustard dill sauce
Butterfish char grilled with extra virgin olive oil & malden sea salt
Atlantic salmon char grilled with mustard dill sauce
Dory char grilled with mustard dill sauce
Fresh tuna steak char grilled with sundried tomatoes kalamata olives, extra virgin olive oil & malden sea salt
Calamari 6 rings lightly dusted & fried with sauce.

BURP! Thanks Mika, sana lageng first payday mo! hehehe.

After magpahinga ng kaunti, we decided na maglakad-lakad at magpa-picture syempre! hehehe.
Nagtxt pa din ako kay Muffin.. I even tried to call him, kaso ring lang eh.

Nang mapadaan kami sa Zuni Restaurant and Wine Bar, parang nakita ko si Muffin. Pero di ako sure eh, sa pagkakaalam ko kasi, birthday daw yun at iinom sila sa bar. Ang sosyal naman, kung sa Zuni pa nila naisipang uminom db?
So huminto ako at tinitigan kong mabuti yung lugar na pinagkakitaan ko kay Muffin.

At ang inaakala kong madaming tao, apat lang pala (well, madame na yun. More than 1). I already recognized Eric and his wife Chona from afar. And... And a girl flirtatiously laughing with Muffin with matching hampas pa sa hita.. Gracious!
Dumilim agad ang paningin ko, birthday party pala ah? Pero nagpaka-cool lang ako..

Maldita Quote's

rain

One of my friend e-mailed me this, panalo eh! So I decided to post. Enjoy!

Girls' and Gays' Most Maldita Moments

The last one I heard from a colleague. Go, add your own taray line! :)

1. On the first day of the Mango sale, the sister of my
friend was looking around and picked up a dress when a woman
at the counter started screaming,"Put that down,
that's mine!" The sister of my friend looked up,
looked at the woman up and down, raised an eyebrow, and
replied, "Excuse me. You are NOT small'"

2. A supervisor once told a worker who has difficulty in
understanding instructions, "Ang ulo, hindi lang yan
pinapatong sa leeg, ginagamit din yan sa pagiisip."

3. A friend told another friend, "Naku, magme-makeup
muna ako, baka magmukha akong yaya mo." The other
friend replied, "Wag na, magmumukha ka lang yaya ko na
naka-makeup. "

4. I told my then boyfriend during a fight, "Even on
your smartest day, you're not half as smart as I am on
my dumbest!"

5. "Ako, I was born beautiful. Ikaw, you were just
born."

6. A letter posted on a car windshield in UP:
"Sir/madam, the parking space that we have reserved is
for the College Secretary, not for you. Guard."

7. When I saw a friend I haven't seen in a long time, she
told me, "Grabe, lalo ka pang tumaba!" So I told
her, "Ikaw din, lalo ka pang pumangit!"

8. Pag sinisingitan ako sa pila, nagpaparinig ako. I say,
"Ang pilang ito, according to beauty. Mga panget
muna."

9. From the movie She's The Man: "Girls with an
ass like mine don't go out with boys with a face like
yours."

10. "Maliban sa mukha mo, ano pang problema mo?"

11. I once told an officemate who kept on bragging about
her new shoes, " Sale , right?"

12 I pointed a "7 items or less" sign to a
clueless pasosyal at the supermarket. She bitchily answered,
"I can read!" Sabay irap. So I shot back with,
"I know, but can you count?"

13. "Tuwing nakikita kita, gusto ko mag-sorry sa eyes
ko."

14. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to be bitchy.
It's an involuntary reaction whenever I encounter ugly
people."

15. Man: "Hey baby, what's your sign?"
Woman: "Do not enter."

16. Man: "how do you like your eggs in the
morning?"
Woman: "Unfertilized. "

17. After receiving her pay slip and realizing how much
she's paying for tax, a sosyal officemate exclaimed,
"Ang mga poor ba nagbabayad din ng tax?"

18. During a hike at Mt. Mayon , we had a maarte companion.
When we ran out of water, our guide got us some from a
natural spring. The maarte girl said, "Dini-drink ba
yan?" I told her, "Bakit, sa inyo ba ang water
chinu-chew?"

19. Overheard from 2 kids talking.
Kid 1: "Lahat tayo galing kay Adam and Eve."
Kid 2: "Hindi yan totoo. Sabi ng papa ko, galing tayo
sa unggoy."

Kid 1: "Hindi natin pinag-uusapn ang pamilya mo, kaya
wag kang magulo!"

20. A friend told his officemate: "I'm impressed.
I've never encountered such a small mind inside such a
big head before."

21. Bading: (envying a girl na crush ng crush nya)
"Isang butas lang ang lamang mo sa kin!"

22. I was staring at an ugly bystander in their street. The
ugly guy snapped, "Bakit ang sama mo makatingin?"
I snapped back, "Eh bakit ang sama mo tignan?"

23. A friend once told me, "Ang ganda mo!" I
answered: "Thank you, sana ikaw rin."

24. I told this to an ex: "I must admit you brought
religion to my life. I never believed in hell till I met
you."

25. "When a cashier tells me she doesn't have
change, I say: "And... kaninong problema yun?"

26. "Kung lahat ng tao galing sa unggoy, bakit ikaw,
mukha kang kabayo?"

27. "Ang pogi-pogi mo wala kang pera? Eeewww!"

Fucking Perfect - PINK

I am a bitch, insecure, ambitious and hypocrite... but then who is NOT?

rain

Dear Toinks,

Nobody's perfect. I know Ive made a lot of mistakes and wrong choices before,
but I want you to know that Im not such a bad person either.
Tao lang, who have their own sets of mistakes.

Fucking Perfect - PINK
Made a wrong turn
Once or twice
Dug my way out
Blood and fire

Bad decisions
That's alright
Welcome to my silly life

Mistreated
Misplaced, missunderstood
Miss know it, it's all good
It didn't slow me down

Mistaken
Always second guessing
Underestimated
Look I'm still around

Pretty pretty please
Don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than fucking perfect

Pretty pretty please
If you ever ever feel
Like you're nothing
You're fucking perfect to me

You're so mean
When you talk
About yourself
You're wrong

Change the voices
In your head
Make them like you instead

So complicated
Look how we are making
Filled with so much hatred
Such a tired game

It's enough
I've done all I can think of
I've chased down all my demons
I see you do the same

Pretty pretty please
Don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than fucking perfect

Pretty pretty please
If you ever ever feel
Like you're nothing
You're fucking perfect to me

The whole world is scared
So I swallow the fear
The only thing I should be drinking
Is an ice cold beer

So cool in lying
And we tried tried tried
But we try too hard
It's a waste of my time

Done looking for the critics
Cause they're everywhere
They don't like my jeans
They don't get my hair

Stringe ourselves
And we do it all the time
Why do we do that? Why do I do that?
Why do I do that?

Yeah?

Oooh?

Oh pretty pretty pretty

Pretty pretty please
Don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than fucking perfect

Pretty pretty please
If you ever ever feel
Like you're nothing
You're fucking perfect to me

You're perfect
You're perfect

Pretty pretty please
Don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than fucking perfect

Pretty pretty please
If you ever ever feel
Like you're nothing
You're fucking perfect to me

LSS (Last Song Syndrome) all week, this song uplifted me. :)

Muffin's First Lying Act... (Part 1)

First betrayal...

sunny

And it goes something like this, :)

7:00 AM
Should I call Muffin? He won't be surprised if he knows Im going back in Manila early today for our anniversary tomorrow... Hmmmmm...

(Phone rings, screen says Muffin)

Muffin: Hi baby morning! Wake up na, you'll be late na naman. Im going to Chona's bday later in the afternoon. Its just a little celeb, we will eat in a resto in Greenbelt 5 and drink some booze after.

Kim: No prob, just dont drink much and drive safely.

Muffin: Thanks sweetie, bye!

.... Ako naman, tuloy lang empake, check-out, para ng taxi, airport, NAIA, home. Not so tired since 1 hour lang ang flight and more than an hour taxi ride to get home.
Muffin will be surely surprised to know Im already back in Manila. Should I inform him na?
Oh, he's on a birrthday nga pala...Then... Chona? Yun yung doctor na asawa ng kabarkada nya na may nireretong nurse sa kanya ah! Tawag ako!

3:30 PM
Kim: Muffin, where are you na?

Muffin: We just finished eating and starting to drink a little na. I was about to call you. Are you on your hotel na? Its merienda time. Kain ka na.

Kim: Yeah, yeah. Can I ask you something?

Muffin: By all means.

Kim: Chona is your barkada's wife that is matchmaking you on her nurse, right?

Muffin: Yep, but you see I already have you. And there's no way na ipagpapalit kita.

Kim: 'Kay, basta ayaw ko ng magkatabi kayo sa upuan (arte!). Keep your distance from her. Ya'know mura lang ang air fare from Cebu to Manila. I can be there in a matter of 3 hours para pektusan ka.

Muffin: Hahaha, that's why I love you.

Kim: Im dead serious.

Muffin: Dont worry bhe.

Kim: 'Kay, enjoy bye!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kim: Uh, It'll take an hour from my house to Makati. And kadarating ko lang from Cebu.You should've informed me earlier.

Tin: Aabot ka kung aalis ka na ngayon, girl. Goodness Kim! You are always out of town, out of the country or out of house with Muffin. Have some time for us.

Kim: 'kay fine! (Guilty). Nanunumbat ka pa dyan.

Tin: Hahaha! I was just stating a fact. The last time we bond is when you first introduce Muffin with us. And that was more than a year ago!

Kim: Im on my car, hindi na ako nagbihis o naghilamos man lang. Im on my way. Sobrang nakukunsensya na ako. Hmp!

Tin: Drive fastly and safely. Now I know how to tag you along on our gimiks!

Kim: In your dreams. It just so happen that I am on Manila and Muffin is out with his friend's bday on... hey, Greenbelt 5. Thanks for inviting me. Hehehe. See ya!

Tin: Dont forget some pasalubongs from Cebu!

Kim: No worries, bye!
