it's idol season once again

Saturday, February 23, 2008

American Idol is back! And yes, I'm still hooked. Every year they say that it's the best batch and every year I'll believe it. Hahaha! Gullible much? ^_^

This year, I think the guys are better than the girls. I don't know if this years crop of Idol hopefuls would match the batch of Chris Daughtry and Elliot Yamin, but I dont' really care. I'll still watch it. As long as the winner is another taylor Hicks. I mean c'mon?! I still can't believe he won. Where is he now, again? Hahahaha! Ang bad ko no?

Anyway, my favorite so far is Jason Castro (pic above). I loved his performance a couple of nights ago. It was so refreshing. I'm looking forward to watching his next performances. Plus, I love his eyes. Ang sarap titigan. Ahihi!

I also think Aussie Michael Johns (hmm... any relation to Daniel Johns of Silverchair?) has a chance. I liked his rendition of The Door's Light my Fire. Astig. David Archuleta is quite good too and he's being hyped as one of the early favorites. Danny Noriega is sassy. Hahaha! I couldn't help but laugh at his reaction to Simon's critique. Ang taray ng lola mo.

There are two guys I didn't like the first time I watched them. One was the Justin TImberlake lookalike "rocker". I don't even remember his name. Robbie Something. Haha! He looked like a rocker poser. Fake ang dating. Even Simon commented on that. Then there's Garret Haley, the first guy cut from the Top 24. Ewan, basta lang di ko sha type. Hahahaha! That sounded bitchy.

As for the girls, of course I'm rooting for Fil-Am Ramiele Malubay. NOt just because she's Filipina, but because of her voice. She's so petite but when she sings, you'd wonder where the voice came from. Haha! As in lung power! I hope she makes it. :) I also like Asia'h , but when she sings there's too many runs. Nakakairita minsan, pero maganda boses nya. And of course there's Carly Smithson. I think she's good, too. Plus, it's like she's the one being hyped to win the competition.

I hope my bets win. :)

starting over

Thursday, February 21, 2008

Inaagiw na yata yung blog ko. ^_^ Tagal na ng last entry ko. Sorry naman, blog, di na kita napapansin, kasi pag-uwi ko pagod na ako, tulog na lang. Ahaha! Parang tanga lang, kinakausap ang blog. Katakot pag sumagot sha. :p

I think I haven't blogged in 3 weeks? Oops, 2 weeks pa lang yata. : ) It seems longer, coz I haven't been online much lately. My new tasks at work are tiring, but I'm enjoying it. Weird nga daw ako, coz I enjoy scrubbing the Invalid Cases that have been filed by the agents at work. Haha!

So, how was your Valentine's Day celebrations? I haven't bloghopped yet eh. How was mine? Hehehe.. let's just say this year, hindi sha malamig. Bwahaha!

Another reason I haven't been online much is because our PC's harddrive went pfft! I said goodbye to thousands of songs and the numerous ebooks I've downloaded over the past couple of years. I'd have to rebuild my playlist, hay. But i'ts a good thing I saved some of my favorites here on Multiply and I was able to save it on the new Hard drive. I don't even want to think about the files that I lost... I might just cry.

Hay.. when did I last blog about losing my files? 2 years ago? And I haven't learned my lesson yet. I didn't back up! ARGH! I was able to back up some files but not the most recent ones. Nakakaines.

Oh well, isipin ko na lang, it's time to start over. Fresh start. Pero nakakapanghinayang pa din, when I think about the thousands of songs sa music library ko. Huhuhu! Tigas kasi ng ulo, di pa din nagback up!

Rest in Peace, little angel

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

I woke up last night to one of my friends' text message that his 7 month old niece, CJ, was in the NICU of the Medical City. Cj was brought to the hospital last night and was diagnosed with dengue fever. It was heartbreaking to think that little CJ had several tubes hooked to her.

My friend, Dads, was giving us updates on the condition of his niece, that she already had 3 blood transfusions. My blood type is O, the universal donor, and I was prepared to give blood if needed. By midmorning, my friend smsed that little CJ was awake and already had a stronger BP and we felt somewhat relieved.

While Rome and I were on lunch, we received another text from Dads that their little angel has passed away. I cannot imagine how hard it is for CJ's mom to see her little angel go. It's always hard to lose a loved one and I hope Dads' sister would be able to take the pain. It's easy to say that everything will be okay, that they already have an angel in heaven looking out for them, but it will not erase the pain the family is feeling right now. I hope and pray that they will have the strength to get through this.

Rest in Peace, little angel.

Wait For You - Elliott Yamin

I never felt nothing in the world like this before
Now I'm missing you
& I'm wishing that you would come back through my door
Why did you have to go? You could have let me know
So now I'm all alone,
Girl you could have stayed
but you wouldn't give me a chance
With you not around it's a little bit more then i can stand
And all my tears they keep running down my face
Why did you turn away?

So why does your pride make you run and hide?
Are you that afraid of me?
But I know it's a lie what you keep inside
This is not how you wanted to be

So baby I will wait for you
Cause I don''t know what else i can do
Don't tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I'm fine it just ain't true
I really need you in my life
No matter what i have to do I'll wait for you

It's been a long time since you called me
(How could you forget about me)
You got me feeling crazy (crazy)
How can you walk away,
Everything stays the same
I just can't do it baby
What will it take to make you come back
Girl I told you what it is & it just ain't like that
Why can't you look at me, you're still in love with me
Don't leave me crying.

Baby why can't we just start over again
Get it back to the way it was
If you give me a chance I can love you right
But your telling me it wont be enough

So baby I will wait for you
Cause I don''t know what else i can do
Don't tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I'm fine it just aint true
I really need you in my life
No matter what i have to do I'll wait for you

So why does you pride make you run & hide
Are you that afraid of me?
But I know it's a lie what you're keeping inside
Thats not how you wanted to be

Baby I will wait for you
Baby I will wait for you
If it's the last thing i do

Baby I will wait for you
Cause I don''t know what else i can do
Don't tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I'm fine it just ain't true
I really need you in my life
No matter what i have to do I'll wait for you

I'll Be Waiting....

I've always thought Elliott Yamin and Chris Daughtry should have made it to the finals of their batch of American Idol. Sadly they were only 3rd & 4th, respectively. But they have been more successful than the winner and the runner-up (uhh.. where are they now? oh.. their label just dropped them. ahahah! bitter pa ako at sila yung nanalo ^_^)

Favorite song of the moment namin ito ni JR. The song is a few months old already, pero hindi sha nakakasawa.

SME na ako, Yey!

Saturday, February 02, 2008

So it's official. Effective Feb. 1, 2008, I've moved from Production to the Support Group. I am now a part of the SME Group (Subject Matter Expert) and wil be rendering floor support, uptrainings and escalations to the agents. I've been assigned to handle two teams, Team Franz and Team Ziggy, and will start working with them on Monday.

It was hard waiting for the announcement. Everytime I check my shcedule at the Webstation, my Feb schedule was blocked as Transferred/Promoted, but I couldn't rejoice yet coz it wasn't official and no one has confirmed it yet. Finally last Wednesday, they announced it. Yey!

I've rendered floor support a few months back when my log in wasn't working, and then again during the past two weeks, for a Champ's League activity. But last Friday was the first time I was a floor support on an official capacity. It went well, I guess. Hehe.

Although I welcome the change, I am honestly feeling quite apprehensive that I am now part of the SME Group. I have this nagging doubt at the back of my mind that I might not be able to do it well. Yikes! What if I am unable to give the right answers? Ack?! Will I be able to handle the stress of being an SME and a Champ's League member? How am I going to juggle my time? I am going to need serious planning and multitasking skills.

I'm going to miss my Team because most of us have been together since training. I won't be able to see them as much because for this month they're on the night shift and I wil be on the day shift. How sad, as Ish says all the time.

But I am glad I am now part of the SME Group with some of my Superfriends. :)

Kakayanin ko to!
