After all the researching (and still doing it!), I have come to the point where I know that I am ready to make the businesses that I have in mind in full throttle for the next couple of weeks (or months).
Like I said, my new year's resolution would be to NOT waste any of my time into planning and imagining things. I have to make it into reality and I guess now is the time to do so. I can't wait to open the online store already.
Ooooh. Exciting. :)
I know it's going to be a little tough at first but once I get to have everything in place and my co-partners (ahem honey, ahem closest friends) are all behind me on this, I guess it would work out great. GRABE na 'tong PASSION na nararamdaman ko! I want to start it now!
As for the Event Planning and Styling, I've been reading a lot and absorbing all that I could so that I can get all the concepts and the processes right! I just need that one little break for me to make it go BADABING-BADABOOM! and then there goes my dream coming to life.
I guess I have all the things that I need now for the Event Planning and Styling thing. I just really have to organize all my files and documents for future references. :) Grabe, I just have to deal with time management. Ugh. That is really killing me.
I even made a doodle in my planner last week and it said, "SO MANY IDEAS, SO LITTLE TIME and MONEY.." Dang.
Anyway, moving on.. I just don't know why I'm so hyped up with this! I have never been so hyped up in putting up a business in my entire life and this has been giving me a sense of freedom-- freedom of having to do what I really want to do and eventually excelling in them.
Ang dami lang opportunities that I can do with these two businesses.. the imagination and the creativity takes place every time and I can't help but get all bubbly and giddy and.. and.. and.. warm inside. It makes me want to skippity-skip my way to the office. hehe. What more if I ultimately and officially start it?
Ooohh.. this gives me more motivation to work during my day job haha. this is nice!
and oh, the resto's doing well. I have to grab that one important deal with this popular magazine that I have yet to name. I haven't talked to my dad yet this weekend, he's out of town alright. Literally out of the coverage area. baaaaaah. our rest house does seem far away from the city, so bite me. Need to contact him tomorrow morning.
STRESS, Bring it On! thank you for being the good stress that I always want you to be. haha. I don't like you when you're bad.
Anyway, time to sign off for a few hours. The day job needs to be given importance.
You can never go back in time.
That's for sure. Each day passes by as if people are immortal. It's so quick, so fast-paced and so surreal sometimes.
Each day becomes a new day, although a lot of people take that for granted. I guess this 2008, I'm guilty of that. I never realized that time can either be your ally or your worst enemy. Come 2009, I'm so going to make sure that I don't waste any more time.
I won't waste possible opportunities to move to greater heights or possible time to express feelings of love, joy and happiness. I spent a humongous amount of time in 2008 brooding, cradling negative emotions and hatred.. I hope 2009 will be better. I know it will for as long as I get to handle my feelings well.
2008 wasn't a bad year for me really. It was definitely full of things that I should be proud of. 1 whole year of spending a great amount of time with Beb and having to accept the happiness, hurt, joy and pain that comes with any relationship. 2008 was THE love year. It was so full of happiness all year round and both of us are expecting a much better year ahead for the both of us..and the years that will follow.
Work wise, I had the grandest time. Opportunities to grow and mature, and I grabbed them all. Though, being who I am, who i "really" am with people doesn't give the impression that I did grow up and i did mature compared to last year.. I guess, people just have different views.
2008 was also the time of hope, of joy and still of new opportunities. I haven't had the time (or never really did go out of my way to find one) to decide and take a big leap --an out of this world leap that can be life-altering, life-changing for me, and for everyone else around me.
2009 is a new beginning and I know that those things that are left undone and hanging in 2008 will finally materialize and will come to full bloom this coming year.
HOPE. PAG-ASA. There's always room for that. Libre lang yan and I encourage every single Filipino, young and old, to always have HOPE, to always dream, to always have a goal.
That's what i've learned in 2008. Always have that dream, that hope, that goal..whether it may be small or humongous, for as long as it keeps you waking up each day with determination to work hard, fight hard and learn hard, I know it would be enough for all of us to take one small, tiny step towards whatever we dream and hope for.
Thank you 2008 for making me a better person, for learning the hard way and for giving me 365 days of endless opportunities, graces, love and happiness.. too hard to admit but I also want to thank 2008 for the grief, sorrow and hardships that came with every stumble, bruise and false risks that I made. It taught me so much, but please be gentle with me 2009. ;)
2009. 23 years old. 3 years in Meralco. 2 years with my hubsybeb. the year of the Ox. Konti na lang andyan ka na 2009 and I want to bid you HELLO and welcome. May you bring me and my loved ones a good life full of peace, happiness, abundance, success and good health. Thank you God for everything, I love you.
To everyone that I still see around, haven't seen in a while, haven't seen in a long time and still haven't met yet.. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!!!
I'll make this really short since I'm hurrying for work..ü
I just want to let everyone know, whoever and wherever you are..
I am so elated / ecstatic / happy / joyful that Ginebra won the 2008 Fiesta Conference.
I guess some things never really change. Ginebra, like the Eraserheads, will forever be part of who and what I am composed of.
Pinoy Pop Culture, beybi.
Congratulations, Ginkings. You just don't know HOW MUCH your win revived something in me. i've been bordering burnout from work for the past few months and this win made me feel like today's a brand new day to start with a boom, bang, bam!
It may sound weird and strangely fanatic, but ohmyfuckinggawdthisiswhatiamfeelingrightnow!
Hmm..maybe because I had a great time sharing the happiness with someone I truly, truly value. Bebeb, the ginkings made it! haha! we did it! =)
And to every single Ginebra fun who share my sentiments, congratulations to you too. Mabuhay ang Ginebra. ü
Okay. So I registered, scanned my valid ID and waited for 1 week confirmation.
Yesterday I received a text message from Marlboro, giving me my login and password combination. I did that too. and even changed that combi to a new and much personal one.
the question is..
the site didn't even say anything about the concert whatsoever.
How do I know if I get tickets? On the day of the concert na ba dahil wala paring tickets na dumarating sa akin? hahahaha. that would majorly SUCK if that happened. sana may paraan para malaman kung makakakuha ba o hindi.
Okay okay.. So everyone knows about the ERASERHEADS REUNION CONCERT and can I just say that I am (one of) the MOST GIDDIEST, MOST EXCITED, MOST CCCCRRRRAAAZZZYY person ever when I learned about the news?
and when after all the endorphine died down, the next question was, "Saan tayo bibili ng tickets?
a lot of people doesn't know where to get them.. and so I made sure that I surfed the internet for this.. and 'lo and behold, I found out an outrageous news going around..and no one has completely confirmed it yet from ANY of the band members or people close to them..
and look what I found out:
+ Marlboro is the major sponsor of the event
+ Marlboro paid each member of the band 10 MILLION (fookin') pesos for talent fee
+ The tickets..ARE FREE. and they are downloadable in a website that will be announced early August.
TICKETS ARE FREE? DOWNLOADABLE? what is this?
Can somebody clear things up for me? I have tons of friends who want to be part of this so-called LEGENDARY and HISTORIC event, and it would be quite unfair if you don't give everyone a chance you know.
Come on, people speak up! :) I'm happy to get some TRUE news. :)
Erasing (or editing) blog entries is like cleansing. Cleansing the soul, the heart and the mind of unwanted memories.. of unwanted burden. Cleansing made me realize that not all memories are supposed to be treasured. It's like letting go of the stuff that you don't need anymore or the excess baggage that makes it hard to move on.
I started "cleansing" today. It was freedom. Freedom from the things that are unnecessary, useless and absurd. I decided to cleanse because I want to live a new life and become totally new again. Not that I don't want to claim that as my past or eject it from who I am, it's more of leaving the past behind and starting a whole new beginning. It's like ending hurt, false love and cruel mistakes..
I have learned my lesson in each of those times. It's like reading a textbook in school, and then you've learned from it, and now it's time to move to another grade, with a different textbook on hand. Would you still browse through the old one if you have a much better and updated version of the textbook? I guess not. Then what do you do? Throw the old one away or give to someone else or whatever, but you don't have to refer to it anymore. It's too outdated and too overused for you to use it again.
Is it more of selective amnesia you might say? Well, probably. maybe. yes.
I'm not finished cleansing, and I admit, it's a long way to go, but at least I already clicked the delete entry button a couple of times today and every click felt like bliss. It was as if I gave myself another chance to rebuild the story of my life again.
Speaking of which, I started rebuilding my life almost 7 months ago. I'm with someone REAL now. He's true as he can be and he makes me happy like no else ever did. Sobrang totoo siya. Sobrang totoo kami. I guess one of the main reason why I'm doing this is because I want to start my life all over again with him--clean slate and all.
Everyone deserves to be truly happy and I know we both deserve what we have.
Everyone deserves a second chance, a new life, a new beginning and how will you start? Start by doing the simple things, start "cleansing" your blog, your photo memory box and all the simple things that remind you of anything that can hinder you from starting that beginning.
You deserve that and once you've done it, everything will be pretty good--inside and out.
After a year of working with this company, I think this day will be the start of my being a full-pledged employee.
The wearing of the new uniform starts today.
Hanep. Ito na yata ang pinaka madaming tuck (in) attempts ko sa buong buhay ko! Hindi ko ma-tuck ng maayos ang blouse na 'to! Trenta minutos ata akong tuck. zipper. ayos. alis. tuck. zipper. ayos. alis. Para siyang excercise, pinagpawisan ako!
We have like 5 sets of inner blouses and then 3 pairs of blazer + skirt. Mondays and Fridays are the same, while Tuesdays and Thursdays are the same as well. Sosyalan ang Miyerkules dahil once mo lang siyang gagamitin the whole week. Kaya I bet, siya ang hindi malalaspag sa lahat. :D
tatlong taon naming gagamitin to. So that's like until around 2010. 24 years old na ako nun pag magpapalit na ng bagong uniform. wooooooh. Ano na kaya itsura ko ng mga panahon na yun? Nagbabalak na kaya akong mag-asawa nun? *shudders* scary. hehe.
In fairness, maganda naman ang new sets of uniform that was issued now. Compared to the ones that we were not able to get hold of. *phew* Meron pa ngang araw na tipong mala-ETHNIC inspired ang drama ng uniform. tapos saka mo lang makikita pag nilapitan mo talaga yung nagsusuot na meron pala siyang maliliit na Meralco logo na nakasama sa ethnic-inspired na kachurvahan.
I'll post some pics when I have the time.
Traffic na daw, kaya kailangan ko ng lumarga.
Good Morning everyone!
blink. blink. blink.
I've been staring at the blinking cursor for five minutes before I actually started this sentence. I don't know why, but for the longest time, I find it pretty hard to express myself. Unlike before, I used to type away like a madman and take hours to compose the perfect blog entry.
Before, there were even times wherein I can't wait to go home and blog my life away. When I look back, I still remember doing an outline of the things that I have to write, so that I won't forget every detail, every word, every scene. and I miss that a lot. I guess that's where I get to be myself, to see how creative I am, to know that I can at least do something good with the so-called "untapped potentials" that I have (or I think I have).
But now, I don't even have the slightest idea where to start, or even HOW. I'm pinpointing on 1 or two reasons. The first one would be because I have forgotten where I placed my creativity and lost the knack of sharing the colorful complexities of my life. Or second, there are just too many things that I have to keep to myself.
Am I being that secretive? or am I just giving the whole mysterious image a try? Either way, you decide.
Yes, I a holding back. Not because I want to, but because I need to. and because of this "holding back", I tend to lose who I am and what I can do. Oh, YOU BET. I can write so many wonderful, CRAZY and exciting things, but I can't. Why? Because I have to.
I don't really care who reads my LJ, I just feel sorry for myself. It's as if I'm depriving myself of the things that I enjoy doing. Just because.
I guess I'm doing this entry for myself. I need reminding. I have to make sure that I don't lose who I am in the middle of this whirlwind life that I'm living right now. I am having the time of my life, yes, that is true. But there's just simply one thing that makes it more exciting--and that is to share it with other people, one way or the other.
and now I'm beginning to think a little better. I can share what I can and just delete out the
expletives. hahaha. yeah right, but that would make all of my stories BLANK. :P
Step by step, I can move on with this. I just feel that I'm in the midst of my creativity drought, or whatever. I don't get to express myself here, take pictures, write stories or think quirky stuff just like I used to back in college. I miss that. I miss that a lot. I don't know if it's because I was surrounded by a bunch of creative, imaginative and witty people at the time, and I was able to absorb their powers (superhero ba ito?). But what the heck.
Am I being in a corporate world sucking all the fun in me? Or is it because I'm hiding too much from all these people? Gawd, I hope not.
I guess I just need to step back a little and remind myself who I really am and what I am capable of doing. and what I am capable are the things that I enjoy and give me happiness.
Gawd. I think I need to double- no wait - triple my dosage of laughter and music. I don't get to laugh so hard these days. If I do, I don't get to share it with someone, because that would make me an idiot (in their eyes anyway). :P
When was the last time that I laughed so hard again? aah. The time where I texted Donna about this TL who had a dark, murky past. bwahaha! Yeah, why don't I share that here? :D It's worth sharing anyway. haha.
Which makes me jump to the next emotion that I'm feeling right now, which is this: I miss hanging out with my high school and college friends, they can be the most wittiest, outrageous bunch in the world.
That wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
I hope this is going to be the beginning of something wonderful (now, is that an Orange and Lemons song or what?) again.
Sweet you rock. Sweet you roll baby. :)

Something to be PROUD of before Pacquiao fights Barrera today. This is a commercial made by Nike, although I haven't seen this EVER on TV, or maybe I just don't watch that much TV anymore *shrugs*
Nakatunganga lang ako sa PC kanina when I was playing this for the first time. Ang galing and I guess everyone needs to see this too. *goosebumps*
Good Luck Manny! Make us all PROUD to be Filipino.. for the nth time. :)
Does he not get it?
Does he not get it at all?
I already gave him the cold shoulder the last time. Then why is he still insisting on being friends with me?
While driving somewhere last night, my Papaya message alert tone (this makes me jiggle and break into a dance everytime. never fails.) sounded off and almost pushed the accelerator too hard when I saw who texted me.
It's.. It's HIM.
The message went like, "Hey, are you still not gonna be a friend :)"
I still don't. Will never.
Or maybe he's just REALLY bored with his life without that boob-girl (pun intended) beside him. Go find somebody else. I'm not interested. We're not in the same level (whatever levels we're in, I just don't think we're in the same plane).
Otherwise, if we were, I could've considered it. But but NO. Hell No. no no no no no. *shakes head in utter bewilderment*
