blogging again :)

Tuesday, March 21, 2006

Obviously, I haven't had the inclination to blog for the past few days :p I guess the weather just makes me feel so lazy. It's been terribly hot here and it seems that every movement I make would make me break out in sweat (eeew!), so ayun.. inatake ng katamaran.

I have quite a lot of things to blog about, I just have to sort them out in my head. It's weird because I have this list on my organizer: "things to blog about" and there's a brief description after each item. Hehe... kina-reer and pagba-blog. :p

The company outing last March 10 was fun. The weather was perfect. It wasn't too hot and there was a warm breeze all day. It was overcast the whole day, and it even drizzled a bit around lunch time, which meant more time for me to swim. I wasn't able to take more pictures because we spent too much time in the water.

I thought that because the sun wasn't shining, I wouldn't tan too much. I was wrong. Even if I put liberal amounts of sunblock, I still got sunburned. :p But it's okay, I had a blast swimming. And my face has started peeling (nyak!), and I hope I'll be back to my normal skin color soon. Ahaha! Ang vain ko. :p

There were numerous times during the day that I heard several people say that they miss mom, or that mom would have loved this or that, or how they didn't realize it then that last year's company outing would be mom's last. I found myself not being able to reply, either because I didn't know how to respond or because I felt my throat constricting and I couldn't utter a single word. Aside from those times, the outing was fun.

I felt as if mom was with me, it's hard to explain, but I felt her presence specially when I sat down by the beach alone. Or maybe it was because I was wearing her violet tie-dyed shorts? Hehehe!

I got an email the other day that made me feel queasy. I know that this email has been circulating, but I didn't expect that I'd get one or that I wouldn't know until I opened the email that that was it. It's an email with VERY GRAPHIC pictures of an accident that happened in front of 6750 Ayala Avenue Monday last week. Grabeh! I only got a split second look before I deleted it but it's something I'm unlikely to forget.

I feel so bad for the person on the pictures. Namatay na nga sha, tapos ngayon may kumakalat pa sa internet na pictures ng aksidente nya. Grabe talaga. May he rest in peace.

On a lighter note, I'd like to post an ad from my sister:

Ay naku ano ba yang spammer sa itaas ko!

Those art lessons sound very interesting! Meron bang for adults? Hehehe. If I had the time and resources, I'd take art classes for fun! It's a great way to channel creative energies!

hi toni. oo nga eh, kainis na spammer. kakatanggal ko lang ng comment moderation, umatake agad :p ayan tuloy, ibabalik ko na. haha!

Hehe.. sayang wala for adults eh. I know meron sa Ayala Museum, but I'm not sure how much. Yup art classes are fun! Bigla ko na-miss yung Visual Art Electives ko nung high school. :p
