ang product specific training namin parang jonin exams sa naruto. nyahehehehe. even though i’m familiar with the product already, it’s tough and kind of too serious. so i try to find ways to make it more bearable… lolz. so pinapagawa kami ng name tents nung mahigpit naming trainer. and i came up with this…


typographers have their own special font. well, everyone loves helvetica. hehehe. but i just found mine! it’s called caramella. i just thought it was pretty and it’s a version of my name too. hihihi.

yun lang.

mr. turkey … pwedeng brooch at maliit na pamaypay. lol. hahaha! no frontin’ dun even!

thanksgiving kase sa amerika. at dahil hindi ko alam kung san hahanap ng turkey at baka masiraan pa ko ng bait sa pagluluto nun, eh di gumawa nalang ako. nyahahaha! at dahil thanksgiving nga, i’ve made a list of things i’m thankful for. here goes…

my readers and my blog … the people who read this blog. buti nalang meh naliligaw pa dito. lol. and i’m thankful that i have a place to word my thoughts and feelings… which i can return to whenever i like. maraming maraming salamat sa pagbisita!

friends slash family … they are the people  whom i can spend time with and never feel unsafe. si maki nga kahit mas maliit siya saken sinisigurado niyang hindi ako masasagasaan ng up ikot. hehehe. david’s like that annoying little brat of a brother na mahilig magbigay ng insights sa art chenes. si max naman, kahit mas bata pa siya, minsan parang ate ko na, her perceptions for some reason, have an impact on me. and if i start talking about what miming’s done for me, that’d be an entirely different maybe, say, five posts… ah wait make that twenty posts. hihihi.

i have a home … a cozy and colorful one! it might be small, hahaha, just look at the pixxors! pero puno naman ng pagmamahal. *wink*

music and art and books … well, kung wala siguro tong mga to, boring lahat ng tao sa earth. kaya lang meron ng mga bagay na yan eh, kaya may mga taong baliw na tulad ko na gumagawa ng turkey mula sa papel. oh, by the way, kung gusto mo rin nung turkey, all you need are brown, red, and orange cardboard paper ; yarn, i chose robin’s egg blue, which i felt looked nice with brown ; and the template is here.

my little sister and chibi chan … yung kapatid ko at saka yung inaanak ko, the loveliest people i know. i love them with all my heart. my sister’s already warmed up to me at ngayon inaalagaan niya ko. si ishi, my godchild, well… i’ve warmed up to her for reasons i cannot explain. magaan lang loob ko sa kanya.

my work … finally, i’m working again with an account that i know really well and the people are generally nice and kind. they give me food. lol. and speaking of that…

food … people seem to give me food most of the time. nyahahaha! payat ko kase. i get mostly sweets ; i am able to eat three times a day *ubo… six times a day …ubo* ; and then there are my favorites! mahilig ako sa cake, eggs, eggplant, taho, gelatin, up isaw just to name a few.

the little things … like soft and warm kisses, and passionate kind of lusty ones too! hehe! mga powerhugs at yung mga tawanang tipong masakit na yung tiyan mo di ka pa rin makatigil sa kakatawa, at siyempre yung mga ngiting nakakabuo ng araw.

so eun, sa pamilya ko, sa lahat ng napapadaan dito, sa mga alaala, sa kulay ng buhay, … thank you nga.

yun lang.

gigil galore … haaaang cute niya noh? the other pixxors are here.

i made a short visit to ishi, my godchild, yesterday. i heard she had a slight congestion but it seems she’s doing fine now. stor0ng baby is stor0ng? hehehe. pauwi palang ako galing sa trabaho when i decided to visit, at super pagod ako sa biyahe but when i saw her, nawala yung pagod ko.

mukha talaga siyang siopao… isang nakakagigil na siopao. hehehe. just look at those cheeks! pero ang talagang nagpasaya sakin eh nung nagpapaalam na ko sa kanya para umuwi, she held on to my index finger. i was all smiles aaaall the way home, lol.

yun lang.

excuse me, your life is waiting… max has had this book since last year and i wish i had read it sooner, kinarir ko to habang nag-training! nyahahaha! nga pala, walang reviews dito sa melaikick… just thoughts, kekeke? this was written by lynn grabhorn though kung gusto ninyong i-google.

sa unang tingin para siyang self-help book, it’s most probably going to be categorized as one though… but it’s a funny book filled with experiences that describe how we can bring positive energy into our lives. it kind of tells us that the way we feel is the way we attract stuff, events, even the people in our lives. for example,  kung inisip mo na hindi ka papasa sa exam… malamang hindi ka nga papasa.

it’s kind of crazy and hard to believe at first, but i tried it and it works. it’s similar to what they study in the noetic sciences. ito yung sinasabi nilang good vibes chenes. in short, we don’t focus on the bad things. we feel what we desire and that’s what we are exactly going to get. so eun, melaikick greatly recommends! aba, i’d rather read this kesa naman ma-nosebleed ako sa noetics. hehehe.

yun lang. much love to you!

nagsimula ang lahat dahil sa bangus. debed’s mom had visited pangasinan for the holidays and unlike debed, she dotes on me and gave me bangus! pis tayuuu! hahaha! max  agreed we cook it at her house… which would be my second visit.

there’s this big white wall in her room which she uses for taking pixxors and since i wasn’t able to do our little angel and devil theme, i thought i’d make up for it… e di hearts nalang! hehehe. i had colored paper lying around and cut up around thirty or so hearts. di ko agad sinabi kay max but when she saw them and was ok with the idea, i was thrilled. hihihi. here o…

sending you some love … yes, kahit november pa ngayon! it was funny how max’s relatives would peek in her room and ask us if it was valentines day already. lol. pero ang love dapat pang whole year! at siyempre pag nagsend ka ng love energy…

you get a heart attack … hindi yung sakit ha. you get a  kind of wonderful feeling, it’s hard to explain. i learned this from max though, hehehe. test nyo nalang, send love to 8888. lol. and in the end, after all that heart blasting, we ate mr. bangus. nom nom nom.

yun lang.

when i was in gradeschool, there was this little girl with bangs chopped off like mine and she was really small but she was more street smart than i was. so eun, years later, friends pa rin kami at engineer micah sayco na siya! it’s her birthday today!

wonderful girl she iz… we used to share food, we acted out together in school plays, we sat beside… well sometimes, during recognitions, she even made some of the junior officers my slaves. hahaha! she’s always one of those people who has shown me kindness and respect and who would deliberately attack food with me. hehehe. matakaw kami!

anyhoo, i just confirmed two days back she’d like to learn how to play the guitar. i’m still learning the chords so don’t be mean. kasi naman my instructor is currently working hard at ibm. nyahahaha! ehem. marv. comia. ehem. so, here goes…

happy birthday maki! it’s the only thing i could think of… for you have everything! i am definitely not showing off my lousy guitar skills, nyahahaha! but i really wanted to sing you a song at para bumili ka na din ng gitara… at galing yan sa kailalim ng heartness kuuuu! hihihi!

yun lang muna…

11/05/2010 … sabi ni maki kakain daw kami. so rekta naman ako sa meh zagu… (lol, up shopping center where we always meet) little did i know i was in for an attack…

attack of the engineers! … ito pala ang lannivane combo. malakas ang powers nila! well, for starters they made me walk somewhere in the executive village of xavierville in the middle of the rain and puddles of water. nyahahaha. maki has nice friends, they never make me feel out of place tapos ang kulit pa nila.

we ate at a place called ride and roll at lumamon kami ng cheeseburger pizza ; fish and chips ; chicharong bulaklak… na kapal ng mukha kong pina-order ko keh maki ; sisig ; those jalapeno pepper thingies ; bottomless iced teas at margaritas … na sapilitang pinainom keh maki. bwahahaha. they talked much about their engineer colleagues whether some of them were gay or not. nyahaha… and crushes, and work, and badminton… lol.

me, teh birthday girl, and a little monster

in the end, meron na kaming mga tama… they gave the receipt to lanni to do her mental division thingy, grabe para siyang walking calculator. hehehe. i’m definitely eating out with these guys again. well, para mapilit si maki na uminom. lol. biro laaaang! i guess the dancing paid off, hahaha. di ako na-melai!

thanks so much maki, you just wait till i get my backpay and we shall dine… in sparta!

yun lang ulit.

i used to like reading books when i was younger. we had a small collection of books at dahil sa bulprisa, i was forced to read the dictionary… twice. nyahaha! kaya lang after high school i started doing more writing until di na rin ako nakakabili ng libro. come to think of it, the last book that i read completely, round early last year, was a book about a hero named drizzt do’ urden from the forgotten realms.

but since i’m kind of distracting myself from stuff, i thought why not read again? i picked a copy of dan brown’s lost symbol a few weeks back. i saved the last chapter to read today.

arsenal ayan o … took out max’s miming scrunchie, para sa buhok kong magulo ; chocolate sticks from the local drugstore and a nice old bear.

see? hahaha! bago ko pala makalimutan, this isn’t a review of the book… just some thoughts about it. dan brown’s books always leave me panting… well not in the kind you imagined. eh i was thinking of the word ‘breathless’ but… it’s kind of all over. hee! nakakapagod siyang basahin actually. kapag climax na ng isang chapter it would transition. and then, you won’t be able to stop reading because you’d want to know what will happen next.

it’s still about one of robert langdon’s adventures, this time about symbols in the us capitol. and as it’s dealing with more and more words, i absolutely loved it… hehehe, typographer love. kind of want to get a tattoo now too, the book deals with a lot of them. aside from symbols, it talks about how through determination we could do the impossible. i was reading through a bit of a rough time, so i guess i was encouraged by it.

the lost symbol and the lost… err girl? nyahahaha! well, madalas akong maligaw sa trinoma and i will never remember the buildings in makati. anyhoo, the story ends the way it always ends, robert langdon is able to find the treasure. eh ako? aside from all that knowledge on symbols, the most important lesson i learned from it is that there’s just so many things i am capable of doing… as long as i put my mind to it. o hai guys, i will start cooking nao… hehehe! it’s just one ozumm book.

yun lang.
