Tagalog muna ;)

Saturday, October 28, 2006

Magtatagalog muna ako. Sawa na ako sa English dahil pag nasa trabaho ako, kelangan English lang (ahaha! as if naman, nasusunod yun :p).

Buti naman at may telepono na uli kami. Mahigit isang linggo din kaming walang telepono at dsl dahil may mga bwisit na nagnakaw ng phone cables sa amin. Ang dinig ko 200 houses daw ang walang telepono sa subdivision namin dahil doon. Nakainis diba? Ang dami nilang naperwisyo! Kamusta naman kaya ang cellphone bill ko dahil dun? Tsk... tsk...

Ano pa ba ang nangyari sa akin?

Ay madami! Pero pinag-iisipan ko pa kung isusulat ko dito. Hehe.. Delikado kung isulat ko eh, baka makadating sa kanya. Basta, masaya ako pag nakikita at nakaka-usap ko sha. :)

Nung isang linggo, ang lungkot ko. Bukod sa personal na mga rason, malungkot ako kasi nagreshuffle (kala ko ba tagalog? hehehe.. mahirap mag-isip ng tamang translations eh) yung mga teams sa program namin. Isa ako sa nalipat ng team leader. Sabihin mo nang baduy, pero umiyak talaga ako. Magkikita pa din naman kami ng mga team mates ko, pero diba iba pa din yung iisa kayo ng team?

Absent ako ng araw na yun kasi umatake na naman ang sakit ng likod ko dahil sa scoliosis ko. In-email lang sa akin ng isang kaibigan na mula November, iba na ang team ko at ang makakasama ko pa sa team na yon ay isang tao na ayoko talagang kasama. Sabi ko nga, na-karma siguro ako. Hehehe!

Tinext ko agad yung team leader ko. Tinanong ko sa kanya kung talaga ngang nalipat na ako at kinumpirma nya sa akin na totoo nga. Shempre, ngawa na naman ako. Ewan ko ba, di ko mapaliwanag kung bakit ganun na lang ang pagkalungkot ko na nalipat ako. Sabi ko sa TL ko sa susunod na buwan, kunin nya uli ako (kasi alam ko magrereshuffle na naman), at huwag nya muna ako tanggalin sa distribution list ng team namin. Nagtext back sha sa akin at sinabing magpagaling daw ako at kung pwede na, kukunin nya uli ako sa team. Sabi pa nya, wag na daw ako umiyak, ok lang daw yun at magkikita-kita pa naman daw kami. Awww.... Ang sweet ng TL ko no? :p Tawag ko nga sa kanya Mentos: soft on the inside. Sagot lang sa akin nun, isang smirk at roll ng eyes, tapos natatawang napapailing. Hahaha!

Nung araw din na yun, nalaman ko na yung posisyon sa dating office ng mom ko na sabi dati sa akin na pwedeng maging akin, binigay na sa iba. Kaya pala pinatagal nila noon, may usapan na pala sila na sa ibang tao ibibigay yung posisyon. Sana noon pa sinabi na nila sa akin, para hindi ako umasa na pagkatapos ng pinirmahan kong kontrata sa trabaho ko ngayon, kukunin nila ako.

Oo, umiyak na naman ako.

Ang pangit talaga ng araw na yon.

Pero ok na ako. Naisip ko, siguro nga hindi talaga para sa akin yung posisyon na yun. Baka may mas maganda pang oportunidad na dadating para sa akin.

Pumasok ako ng sumunod na araw. Nung makita ako ng team leader ko, natatawa sha. Shyet. Nahiya tuloy ako bigla. Kasi alam nya na umiyak ako dahil nalipat ako ng team. Sabi ko sa kanya, "TL, pag umiyak ba ako uli, kukunin mo na ako? hehehe!" Sabi sa ken, "Ok lang yon, next week ka pa naman malilipat eh, sa team pa din kita ngayon."

Pagkatapos nun, nag-break na kami ng kaibigan ko. Palakad kami papuntang pantry, sabi sa akin ng kaibigan ko, "Jennie, he looks like KC Montero, o." At tinuro nya sa akin yung isang guy na kausap ng guard sa floor namin. Sabi ko, "Oo nga, kamukha nya. I wonder what program he's in?" Lakad pa din kami, tapos napansin namin yung mga nurses sa clinic, nakasilip lahat sa pinto at kilig na kilig.

Lingon uli kami.

Shyet. Si KC Montero nga. Hahahaha! Akala ko agent sa ibang program, sha pala talaga. :p

Pagdating namin sa pantry, nakita namin naka-set-up yung Symposium for MTV Summit for AIDS, at ang nakabanderang tarpaulin ng Frenzy Condoms (hehehe... frenzy condoms sa pantry? there is something seriously wrong with that.) Since di kami pwede magpantry, balik kami sa area namin.

Sabi ko sa bagong TL ko nung mapadaan ako sa kanya, "TL si KC Montero nasa pantry."

"Weh, di nga?", tanong nya.

"Oo nga, promise, kakadating lang."

Narininig kami ng isa pang TL na gay. "Sino daw?"

"Si KC Montero, nasa pantry." sagot ko naman.

Nagulat ako ng bigla silang tumayo at tumakbo papuntang pantry. Tawa ako ng tawa. Kumalat sa buong floor na nandun nga si KC. Lalo akong natawa nung makita namin na bigla dumami yung tao papuntang pantry. Pasimple pa na gusto makita si KC, halata naman na yun yung pakay nila. Lahat may dalang baso, kunyari kukuha ng tubig sa pantry. Wahahaha!

Ang tao nga naman pag may nakitang sikat. Ayaw pa aminin na excited sila na makita yung celebrity, kelangan pa magpasimple. :p

Yan ang ilan lang sa nangyari sa akin last week. :) Tigil na muna ako, mahaba-haba na ito.

Happy weekend!

do you know that Cure song?

Saturday, October 14, 2006

I've been in front of the computer for about an hour and this is the only sentence I could come up with.

I have a lot of things to say, but I need a little bit more anonymity to write about it. I figured there's no way to be completely anonymous here on the net - thanks to Google, Yahoo & other search engines. So now I'm thinking maybe I should write about it on my actual diary (yes, even if I have multiple blogs, I still have a diary :p), but I'm too lazy to. Hahahaha! My goodness, ang daming reklamo!

Oh well, I better write it down now before I lose my nerve.

I'm sure you know the song, "Friday, I'm in Love" by the Cure. If not, here's the lyrics:

I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday I'm in love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate...

I don't care if Mondays black
Tuesday, Wednesday - heart attack
Thursday, never looking back
It's Friday, I'm in love

Monday, you can hold your head
Tuesday, Wednesday stay in bed
Or Thursday - watch the walls instead
It's Friday, I'm in love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate...

Dressed up to the eyes
It's a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound
And as sleek as a shriek
Spinning round and round
Always take a big bite
It's such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It's Friday, I'm in love

I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday I'm in love
Okay... going back to my actual concern. Hehehe!

I've loved that song since it came out in the '90s, but I haven't sung it since it peaked years ago. Until last Friday, that is. Argh.

Why argh?! I don't know.. maybe because this is so unlike me. I know I am being very vague (I hope and pray that I am) but...

Ay kaines! I didn't realize that I felt this way until last Friday. And it hit me like a ton of bricks when I realized it. Sideblinded! Okay, I know this isn't love. More like a mega-crush. And this time I am NOT talking about the office Superman.

So, I used to joke that I had a crush on him. Now I actually think it's true. AAARRRGH!! Nahawa na ako kay Bro na nung isang araw pa sabi ng sabi na, "Ate Jen, I'm love!" with matching kilig pa. Ampotah.

Clare, and whoever else knows about this, NO NAMES PLEASE! Or I will surely die of embarrassment. Not because I am ashamed of him or of liking him, but I am afraid my secret crush will learn about it.

I didn't have work yesterday, but I went to Makati to pick up an Insurance Policy from my old office. I also burned a cd for a friend, so I decided to pass by the office, since I'm in the vicinity and give the cd to her. I was on my way home and I passed by his workstation and he asked me what I was doing there on the day I have no work. Do you know what my head said?!

"Kasi gusto kitang makita."

Inaaaang!

I was floored. It was a good thing I didn't say it out loud. I would have had a cardiac arrest if I did.

I just smiled sheepishly and told him I was picking up something from my old office and I brought the cd for my friend. We chatted for about 2 minutes and then I said I had to go coz my brother was waiting for me in the parking area.

I had this big smile plastered on my face on the way to the elevator (no wonder people were looking at me funny), to the parking area, to the old office, in the car and until I arrived home.

It's a wonder why my cheeks didn't hurt.

I had this goofy smile on my face the whole day. All because we chatted for 2 freaking minutes.

Asows.

on the path of the storm

Tuesday, October 03, 2006

Where were you when Typhoon Milenyo made landfall?

I was in Baclaran, on my way home from my night shift.

To describe it as scary would be an understatement. But the weird thing about it was that my friend and I kept laughing. Well, we were also screaming and cursing during our "adventure". We probably looked like the people on the "Disasters Caught on Tape" type of show.

It was a good thing we found a cab and made it home safely. Thank God!

I learned later that night that had we been delayed by a few minutes, we would have been in the vicinity of the fallen billboard, and possibly gotten hurt. I am really thankful that we got home safely.

I was soaked to the bone when I got home and I was shaking because of the cold and our experience. Which was probably the reason why I slept though the rest of the storm.

When I woke up, the storm had passed and I looked at the aftermath. Our mango tree was partially uprooted and most of the trees on our backyard had been uprooted, bent or cut in half. We didn't know where to start the clean-up, but we were thankful that we didn't get hurt.
