ang hirap magupdate ng blog kung lagi kang kinikidnap ng mga friends mo. lolz. been super “busy” this week or ang layo lang talaga ng bahay namin… traveling eats up almost two hours of my time everyday… tinatanong ni miming kanina kung natutulog pa daw ako. hahaha. sleep? ano yun?

anyway, i bought new converse shoes… kaligayan ko lang naman. heto pix and detail.

i liked this one dahil… (drum roll please!) dahil may little red riding hood na detail! yap, just because of that! eh favorite ko si little red noh. it cost me php 3300 but who cares. wala naman sa pilipinas nyan or wala pa at the very least. amf. in addition, it’s part of coverse’s 1HUND(RED) campaign kung saan 10 percent of the net price chervams, whatever they call it, “goes to the global fund and help eliminate aids.” ang nagdesign ng sapatos na ito ay si camila engman. ma’am, isa kang henyo…

o, nice naman diba? adik lang talaga ako sa converse. well, kesa naman sa drugs. you can get it here: i got mine with the help of, mga fairies who will go to a lot of trouble just to make your wish come true! can’t wait to get the next one!

yun lang.

around 10:00 this morning i started experiencing chest pains pero sabi ko sa sarili ko, kaya ko pa din magcalls. around 10:30, hindi na ako makahinga. nobody noticed me, busy din naman ang team sa calls nila. tinatanong na ako ng customer ko kung inaasthma daw ako. sabi ko nalang oo… pero wala akong asthma, lalo namang wala akong sakit sa puso… nadala ako sa clinic ng mga 10:45, i was shaking uncontrollably… wala na din akong maramdaman. ang alam ko lang walang hangin. it felt like i was in a vacuum.

hindi nila malaman kung baket ako nagkaganon, normal ang heart rate at blood pressure ko. hindi naman ako kumain ng hipon. all the nurse was able to say was, i had a breakdown-slash-overfatigue.

ang babait ng mga team mates ko, though. sobrang nag-alala sila saken. tinago ko nalang yung takot ko at nakitawa sa kanila afterwards. ang bait din ni marshey na nagintervene sa call ko… hindi naman siya ang direct supervisor ko pero siya ang kumuha nung call…

2:02, i’m typing this. i’m still feeling weak. i just wanted to share what happened because i’m scared, my family has a history of cardiac arrests… i have no one to talk to. no “you’ll be okay…” no “that’s just nothing…” no “everything will be alright…”

ayun naman, no need to be down. ewan ko naman sa sarili ko. sorry, to whoever reads this, i know it’s a very disappointing contrast. i’m just helping myself… ibang degree na kasi ang worry level ko. o sige na, melai, tandaan mo, kaya mong huminga!

yun lang.

kanina si manong guard sa mini stop, binati ako ng ahn nyong! lolz… eh di binati ko din!!! gulat nalang siya nagtagalog ako sa counter. hahaha. hindi naman ako maputi noh. mukha ba akong korean? anyway siguro isa itong sign or whatever dahil (at kahit hindi related) narealize ko na…

i’ve never had so many gay friends in my life… ngayon lang (malamang O.o) kasi naman itong mga friends kong itago nalang natin sa mga pangalang rabbit at miming, eh masyadong gay magnet… although they’re straight. ay ewan ko ha pero bigla nalang akong lalapitan at sasabihan ng “hi melai” na never pa nilang ginawa noon, tapos phishing (tama ba spelling, mga techy dudes?) na kasunod. haizz, phishing about rabbit and miming…

now, don’t get me wrong. hindi negative ang tono ko. i’m happy to make new friends. at pansin ko, gay people tend to make the room a bit happier. alam nyo kung sino kayo (hem hem, brianna… marshey… len… ayoohoo!). basta naman noh wag masyadong malakas ang gaydar… dahil nawawalan ako ng signal. ya know what i mean! hahaha. thanks for the sunny smiles gurls.

yun lang.

ano meron? joan and i watched kung fu panda last saturday night. ang ganda ng movie na ito, bagay sa mga depressed na katulad ko. anyways, late kame pareho ni joan sa oras na napagusapan namin which is 5pm. nakadating ako ng trinoma around 6pm at si joan around 7pm na…at ang pila… wow ha. in call center terms, “queueing”. lolz. hanggang fully booked sa haba. abot sana kami sa 7:45 na screening kaya lang wala ng seats!!! so we had to settle for the last full show at 9:45.

muni muni lang kami sa trinoma, window shopping, inaway ang manager ng chowking, at pinagusapan ang mga manyak, manloloko, at torpe sa opisina. hahaha. tapos ayan muntik tuloy kaming malate keh panda dahil si joan naghanap ng popcorn… we ended up paying 75 php for lemonade! !@#$%^&*

anyway eto yung gist : po is an adorable panda working in a noodle shop for his dad. he has this deep love and longing to learn kung fu however his dad, who for some reason is a bird, sees he is destined to be a great noodle chef (waaah is there such a thing?) po “accidentally” becomes the dragon warrior chosen by master oogway, a darling turtle who’s like the founder of kung fu. discouraged at first, po comes to realize the importance of being your own hero and defeats evil snow leopard tai lung.

it was hilarious and touching at the same time. maraming marami akong natutunan from kung fu panda. i’ve stored this quote on my cellphone… to the annoyance of joan. here we go…

“quit…don’t quit. noodles… don’t noodles. you are too concerned with what was and what will be. yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, today is a gift. that’s why it’s also called present.”

galing diba? lolz. i learned the importance of valuing what we have “now”. tama nga naman, sometimes when you fret too much about the future or leave yourself stuck in the past… mejo masisiraan ka lang ng chervams. just like what happened to me… i tried taking things to the next level at hayun, it just complicated things… hahaha, you go, master turtle dude!

mga pahabol. what else made me love the movie? kasi madaming rabbit. ang cute. at saka namiss ko tuloy ang tunay na panda sa buhay ko… hahaha. hoy ronness! cute naman talaga ang panda. *wink* at nakauwi din ako sa bahay, finally, pero hindi na yung katulad ng dati, not surprisingly there was a smile on my lips when i went to bed.

yun lang.
