Uhm? Where to? Who to?

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Oh Ehm Gee.   It is my barkada's Cadiz weekend again.  I will be disappointing them....again. They are having a  trip to Lakawon this morning and I am torn in between because I already promised my friend jassy that I will be godmother to Jiana's christening,  My friends told to me to get  a proxy but a promise is a promise.  There will be a lot of Lakawon road trips in the future.

In the meantime, I will play Plants vs. Zombies until 
lunch.


Its a silly game about having plants in your garden so that the zombies can't get inside your house or your brain will be eaten.  I don't recommend this to the weak hearted.  Pati ah.  Che-che lang.

All Worth It for the Brazilian

Friday, February 26, 2010


Vanity is pain they say and I am a firm believer.  The greatest suffering I have ever had to pay for beauty was what I did earlier.  The feeling is like a thousand horde of fire ants munching at your sunflower but you can't do anything about it but just grit through the pain and scream profanities to the four walls around you.  I will not say that it is just like giving birth, but its close to that.

Brazilian. Brazilian Wax.  I dared to go Brazilian.

Its my vacation today, so I decided to pamper myself.  I went to Lay Bare, a waxing salon here at my place.  This is the very first time that I ever did it.
It hurt like hell, and all I had to do was grip at the sheets and cursed a lot and at the same time apologizing to the waxer for being foul mouthed.


After that ordeal, I couldn't even stand properly.  But the good thing was that after 10 minutes, I felt so free and breezy down there.

Guys, if you haven't tried going Brazilian yet, I suggest you should.  The agony, the torment, the anguish is all worth it.  They use cold was so it doesnt burn your skin like hot wax does.  It is just above Piazza Sorrento. 

Wake Up Call

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Okay, since my doctor advised me to go to the gym and that the next time he sees me, I should have a Coca Cola body, I decided I should let loose today.  I ate two Hershey's Chocolate Bar, Lina-ga, and more chocolates at work.  I will give my self a week to say goodbye to the one thing I love most.  Food.

Maybe this is a wakeup call.  And I accept this as it is.  Everywhere I go, people would always ask in wonder if how many months I was pregnant.  Er?  This is just food baby!  I don't blame them for thinking like that because I am the one who looks like a pregnant bamboo stick.

Just check out the picture Rochelle took when we were waiting for our turn at the ultrasound table.  I thought it was already perfect but I was so horrified when I zoomed in to have a closer look and saw a big flab of lard hanging on my left side!  I was so disgusted with my self!
 

I am going gym shopping on my day off next week.  Watch out!

I will look like this again!
Even better!

Food Baby!

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Yay! Yay!

I just got home from an exhausting and very scary day at the Bacolod Diagnostic Center for my scheduled ultrasound.  My friend Rochelle was there as well because she was said to have something growing on her boobies.  Hopefully she is just fine.



After the ultrasound, I met my friend Jassy to have lunch at Rob.  Haay I miss her, it has been a long time since we hung out.


One big surprise today was that the Diagnostic center made me go back because they said that the doctor will not release my result unless she checked me out again.  That was agony.  I thought that they found something and that I could die tomorrow.


I returned to my doctor at Doctor's Hospital and when he read the result, I could have jumped for joy right there and then.  He told me that there was nothing to worry about because it was just food baby!  "Boy-un" in my own dialect.  It was just fat that coagulated and then got covered by more fat.  He didn't give me any medicine to drink but told me that the best way to lose the cyst is to just go to the gym or exercise it out.

Boy, what a relief that was.

Quack Quacking

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

I had a month long delayed doctor's appointment today.   I had a follow up check up with my doctor about a cyst inside me that the specialists discovered when I was hospitalized early November of last year.  It scares me alot just thinking of something possibly deadly cancerous growing inside me.

Tomorrow  I will be scheduled to take the ultrasound test again to check if the thing inside me has grown or melted or disappeared.

Ack!




I'm Happiest When I Go Shopping!

 

After two months of shopping hiatus, I finally did a shopping binge yesterday!
Gawd, it feels so good!

Warning! Hotdog may cause choking.....blah blah blah!

Monday, February 22, 2010


I saw on the news today about pediatricians campaigning to redesign the shape of hotdogs.  To what!?  I have been eating hotdogs all my life and there is no shape I would want to eat it with.  This is absurd!  It will not be a "hotdog" anymore if it looked any different!


Please help save the hotdog!

Proud to be Kolasa

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Yay!  I will be getting my Kolasa cellphone strap this monday!


Back to back features.  I will be getting mine this Monday at Rob from Jancy, my high school batch mate. 

Old Party Pic

 

I found this picture in one of my friend's album in Facebook.  I must have been really drunk cause I don't ever remember taking this one with Gino.

This was at the Philip Morris party at North.

I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight

Friday, February 19, 2010

Just like the U2 song goes "I'll go cray if I don't go crazy tonight'.  So crazy I went last night.  Now I'm back to square one.  So much for changing my  number.

Happy Hearts Day!

Sunday, February 14, 2010

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

Picture me in a dark room with my laptop in front of me and the trashbin full of chocolate wrappers.  I've been in my room all day downloading songs, watching movies, facebooking and pigging out on chocolates.  I don't feel like spending the holiday today.  

These are the movies I watched today:


 

 

 

 

Now I am going to sleep without brushing my teeth.

Tried Sleeping With a Broken Heart

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

The next paragraph, I warn you, will be a bit of an incoherent backlash from a seemingly damaged person.  I wrote this last night  when I was so full of emotion that I just typed in whatever came next from my muddled brain into my blackberry.  Sorry for the misspellings and absolutely lack of respect  for grammar.  I would like to preserve it as it is.

Ever felt that feeling as if someone was stabbing your heart gruesomely with a double serrated knife and twisting it 360 dgrees so that the gaping wound will nevr ever close and leave you gasping for and wishing the earth would open up and swalloe u whole?
what did u do if you've had? did you scream and shouted and let it all out? did you kept it all to yourself? or did u blame it on evry thing, petty or huge enough to make it seem like the whole universe and the knife holder are scheming against you? if u havent, then ur one lucky organism. but if have, then cheers to all of us and all our  wrecked up butchered hearts!
i want to cry but i wont. i am ashamed already as it is.  today i saw someone in the streets which disturbed me to the very core.  the jeepny ride was excruciating cause i couldnt cry infront of all those people.  no not anymore. i used to, but never anymore.  when i got home i just wanted to tear my hair all away and let the tears pour in. instead, i got angry and made a fuss on all the insignificant things like my lost slippers, why my blanket changed or my belt on the floor. 
venting out my frustrations on those things is a good unacceptable way of disturbing the house at 10:30 when all else are sleeping already. selfishly thogh, i didnt care less.  the dont have a heart that has just been brutalized.
Now I clim aboard on my bed let the tears fall in silent and int the vast cover of darkness..

Murder on My Mind

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Now that my schedule has changed from graveyard to senator shift, I have the time to read some books again. I work starting from 11am until 8pm and there arent really a lot of chats in that time frame. I am currently reading the NECRONOMICON: The Best Weird Tales of H.P. Lovecraft at night to give me nightmares as I sleep and at daytime, I read The World's Most Notorious Murders to put some thrill in my fluorescent powered lifestyle. People have found it strange why I am fascinated with these kinds of topics or as to why even entertain my thoughts with these? I have loads of books and files in my computer about killers, murderers and crime stories. I don't really care at all what people think. I like reading, and it just happens to be that what ticks me is reading about people being killed.

Last Team Breakfast

Sunday, February 7, 2010

Everybody has got a new team at work so my old team and I decided to have breakfast after work at McDonald's.  Its very funny because almost everyone wanted to drink but when I suggested just to have plain breakfast, they all agreed, with no contest. Hmmm?

 
That is me at the very far right of the picture.
Goodbye team Meong!
TL Meong rocks the best.
I am so sad.
=(

Lethargic

Saturday, February 6, 2010

I'm going back to work tonight.  It feels like my feet are made of a whole truck.  Can I just stay here at home and hide under my sheets?

Movies I'm Looking Forward To This Year

Friday, February 5, 2010

RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE 
September 10, 2010


There is no poster available yet, but surely this will be one of the movies that makes me want to fast forward to September. esident Evil: Afterlife picks up where the third film left off. Since the events of Resident Evil Extinction, Alice has been roaming the world searching for any remaining survivors. As she enters the ruined Los Angeles she stumbles onto a prison surrounded by zombies. 



SHUTTER ISLAND 
February 19th, 2010
  
Starring Leonardo di Caprio 2nds my list.  
The movie is about:
Two U.S. Marshalls are sent to a federal institution for the criminally insane located in Boston's Outer Harbor to capture a violent female escapee.
Its an adaptation of a book by Dennis Lehane who also wrote Mystic River and Gone, Baby Gone. 


ALICE IN WONDERLAND
 March 5th, 2010
   
I never really understood the story but I will see this just because there is Johnny Depp in it.
I heard that this is not the real Alice in Wonderland story but a sequel or something.  
It is about 19-year-old Alice returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl, reuniting with her childhood friends: the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Dormouse, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, and of course, the Mad Hatter. Alice embarks on a fantastical journey to find her true destiny and end the Red Queen's reign of terror.


CLASH OF THE TITANS
April 2nd, 2010
    
Starring Sam Worthington, who had the good fortune to star in a little film you might have heard of called Avatar, it’s loosely based on the Greek myth of Perseus and a re-make of the 1981 film of the same name.  You remember the 1981 version don’t you?  It starred Harry Hamlin and Ursula Andress?  It had Laurence Olivier playing Zeus and Medusa the monster with snakes for hair who could turn soldiers to stone with a single glance?
Yeah, that one!
The plot has something to do with Greek Gods battling each other, a hero’s quest,  and most importantly, lots and lots of epic battles and monsters.


 SHREK FOREVER AND AFTER 
May 21st, 2010
 
I love the 3 movies that came before this so that means it will be as good.


IRON MAN 2
May 7th, 2010
 Robert Downey Junior rocks my socks too!
All the other comic super heroes made for the big screen irks me, not to mention Daredevil.  
Imagine my surprise when he guy from Swingers directed one of the most exciting and faithful adaptations of a super-hero ever to be brought to the silver screen.  Add in Scarlett Johansson in tight leather, John Favreau back in the director’s seat, and the addition of War Machine to the film, and I’m getting fairly excited.


DESPICABLE ME
July 9, 2010
  
Just watching the trailer made me cry my guts out.  
Need I say more?
Its about world domination and stealing the moon with the help of "minions".
Stars funny people like Steve Carrel and Russel Brandt.


INCEPTION
July 16, 2010
Perhaps one of the most secretive films of the summer, all that we know about it is the single-line description of plot which has been released:  “A contemporary science fiction action thriller set within the architecture of the mind.”
Sounds intriguing, no?
Also stars Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Michael Caine, and Lukas Haas.


SALT
July 23, 2010 
  
Even though I am on team Jennifer, it still does not change the fact that I think Angelina Jolie
is the greatest action hero of today.  Yes, greater than the men around her.
It is about:
Before becoming a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt swore an oath to duty, honor, and country. She will prove loyal to these when a defector accuses her of being a Russian sleeper spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture, protect her husband, and stay one step ahead of her colleagues at the CIA. 


STEP UP 3-D
August 6, 2010 
  
I never ever ever was a fan of dance movies, but when I saw Tatum Channing groove his bootey, I was officially hooked.  Too bad there will be no hunkable Tatum on this one.  But lets face it, 
the movie is awesome and makes me want to learn
how to dance.  It stars the same people from the second film.


RAPUNZEL
December 10, 2010
  
 I read that this was going to be a classic!  Disney is doing it old school!  
Everything is digital nowadays so its a good idea that 
they make this a classic hand drawn movie.
I can't wait!

I Give Up. You Win.

The hardest thing I have ever done was to let go of the one I love most.   Even though the pain is like chewing razor blades, I just keep my eyes shut, swallow the pain and paint a smile because I want him to be happy all the time and I know in my heart that I am never the one to make him feel that way. 

Its been a month and a week since I last said goodbye.  Probably that was the last time I will ever say "I love you" even though I will love him forever.

I miss him so much but it seems like I have done almost everything that I put my hands down, finally.  I give up.

The Normal Freakish Things I'm OC About

Thursday, February 4, 2010

Crazy how two people find out that they are totally insane in the same way, that they have the same obsessive compulsions on laundry at the very exact detail. Wow!  For all you know, the other one is me, and the other one is my older schoolmate

After that revelation, I did a sudden reflection.  Its just not clothes and shoes that I am OC about, but a lot more!

I have created a list so that at least I can fully grasp how totally abnormal I am.

1.  Shoes.
I am a lunatic about shoes.  Just last December, I bought 6 pairs.  Beat that.  That is not the worst part, the worst thing about me with my shoes is what happens after every use.  Every one of my shoes still looks brand new even after 6 months.  You know why?  I clean them up after every use and return them in their boxes.  They are so clean that if I had a choice, I would fall asleep with all of them together in my bed.

2.  Clothes/Laundry
If I could stare at my laundry all day until they dry, I probably would, but that is just borderline psychotic, isnt it?   Checking back after every 20 minutes will do for me.  Yes, I may be bordering on psychotic already.  
I am into fashion and I love my clothes very much.  I never let anyone dare try to wash them because I just can't trust any hands handling my babies.  The sun and I are so not friends when it comes to this because I do not hang my clothes under it.  I don't use soap bars only powders.  I don't use clip on instead hangers.  I will only allow clip ons on my pants and my cardigans.

3.  Books
Once I am in a mall, 70% of my time will be spent most in a bookstore where I will be just circling round and round trying to figure out what to buy. It takes me 30 mins to an hour to decide on a book.  However, sometimes, everything is compulsive.  Once I saw a copy of the Brother's Grimm Fairy Tales and Sherlock Holmes the complete works half a second after entering National Bookstore and  exactly a minute later I was at the counter.  Or there was a time that I spent 2 hours in the store figuring out a book and when I was on my way to the counter, I saw the compiled Narnia chronicles and in a split second, I grabbed it and that was the one that I bought.   Usually I buy wholesale.  Like for example, say, Harry Potter, I don't buy retail, I buy the whole seven books.  And like Paulo Coehlo, I'd buy every story. 
But that is not yet just that.  There are rules in handling my books which makes people not borrow anymore.  It scars them for life.  My rules are simple but hard to follow if the borrowers are not me.  One rule is to never leave a crease on the middle part of the book.  Never use it as paper cushion when writting.  No folding of pages.  Hands should be clean. No eating.  Never have it lying page down.  These rules scares people away.  But I think that is good.  No one to borrow my books anymore.

4. My Bed
No one sleeps in my bed unless they have my permission.  Try it and the roof will go down on you.

5.  My Stuff.
My stuff, hands off.  


These are the only major ones I could think of right now.  My mind is slowly deteriorating since I should have been sleeping 4 hours ago.  Its my day off so I will likely be slumbering my ass off until the next day.


9 Chic Shoe Rules

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

I found this article from Harper's Bazar earlier and thought I should share with my fellow "shoemans".

It's no secret that women adore shoes. When you are blue, buying a new pair is an instant mood lifter. When you feel great, you make a trip to the shoe store in celebration. And on special occasions, you must have something special to wear. The truth is, there will always be a good excuse to add to your shoe closet. Here are 9 tips on expressing your personal style — through your footwear.

1. Don't Be Hobbled by Discomfort Even if you love a pair, if you can't walk in them, don't buy them. Limping around in heels is decidedly ungraceful.

2. Dare to Wear Brights An electric hue can amp up a look, including outfits in colors other than black and denim. Try colored shoes with white, khaki, and pastels. A scarlet-red dress, however, calls for neutral footwear.

3. Wear What's Appropriate Open-toe sandals may be too risqué for a conservative suit, while a flat may be too casual for a cocktail frock. Keep your sneakers relegated to gym clothes or casual jeans. When in doubt, it's hard to go wrong with a classic black pump.

4. Going Outdoors? Say No to Stilettos
It will be difficult to walk when your heels keep sinking into the ground, and you'll ruin your shoes. Flats are fine, but if you want height, wedges are an ideal option.
5. Make a Statement A spindly stiletto sandal is all about looking sexy, while a bow-emblazoned kitten heel veers more toward cute. Know what look you're going for, and go full out.
6. Va-va-voom Shoes Have Their Place Nighttime is the right time for attention-getting shoes. If you still want to wear a knock-'em-dead look during the day, choose a closed-toe or peep-toe pump.
7.  Pair Sky-High Shoes with Tame Hemlines When going for major air, keep your hemlines at an inch above the knee. But when wearing a short skirt or dress, wear a lower heel or flat — it will balance you out and keep you from showing altogether too much leg.

8. Wear Flats with Properly Hemmed Clothes Make sure your clothing is tailored or you'll risk looking sloppy. A trouser leg should fall at or above the ankle, while skirts or dresses should end above the knee.
9. Think About Balance (And we're not talking about the kind you need to walk.) A thicker-heeled shoe grounds a heavily layered look, when something dainty could look off balance. The reverse also holds true. When wearing a wispy frock, a thin-strapped sandal is an appropriate match.

The Thing On My Nightstand

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

I have been reading my copy of the "Necronomicon: H.P.  Lovecrafts Best Weird Tales" for months now.  The book came with a warning not to read at night, but I use it as a lullaby.  I'm fearless, yeah!
"At The Mountains of Madness" has helped me sleep for days already. The story is written in first-person perspective by the geologist William Dyer, a professor from Miskatonic University. He writes to disclose hitherto unknown and closely kept secrets in the hope that he can deter a planned and much publicized scientific expedition to Antarctica. On a previous expedition there, a party of scholars from Miskatonic University, led by Dyer, discovered fantastic and horrific ruins and a dangerous secret beyond a range of mountains taller than the Himalayas.

I just thought that since I am on the internet right now, I'd check out some artwork regarding the story. Its not a surprise how the tales of Lovecraft inspires such incredible artwork. 


 
 A book cover depicting a scene from the novella.

  
 Another book cover:
 William Dyer and Danforth exploring the ancient city.

  
Shoggoths, attacking our heroes.
 In the story, something that Danforth saw made him insane but he wouldn't say what it was.

  
The ancient alien super race hidden behind the mountains of Antartica.

  
An  Elder Thing: the very first inhabitants of the planet
Earth.


Its Officially The Month of Love...This Sucks. Big Time

Monday, February 1, 2010


Oh, I get it now!  That is why they have been playing those heart wrenching, gut crushing and tear jerking songs at work!

  I'm not looking forward to the next 13 days.  And when the 14th day comes, I'm going to pig out on chocolates and stay under covers.  I will look for every reason not to leave my bed.  It still hurts.
