THE NERVE

It was a murky Tuesday afternoon and my muscles are aching. My temperature is a bit high,(one hot mama!!! bwahahaha) my eyes are kinda puffy and demanding for a recess from radiation invasion. Morning, off we skedaddled to the cutting department with the engineering boss. At first i couldn't understand his instructions because i could barely hear him speak, i just got the drift of what he wanted me to do when he asked me to bring a digicam. Ohh la la. Sexitari chenes. hehehe.

The sun was still up in the morning. I sun-bathed and almost got grilled while "shutterbugging" above the pile of metals in the stockyard. I hopped in the isles of the stockyard, momentarily avoiding the protruding parts in the metal bundles that could almost hit my......... chest.(big evil grin) I bathed in my own sweat i could squeeze almost a gallon from my clothes.

It was raining cats and dogs in the afternoon. My mood succumbed to the coldness of the weather. Ah.. familiar sentiments. Depression. Problems. People walking in and out of my life, leaving footprints as well as something barren and unrecognizable. I asked myself what gap in my life do i need to fill in order for me to regain my sanity, to come back to the same silly me.

Just before i went home, i dropped at the Western Union to send some moolah. They have an on going promo, i was asked to scratch a circle in a board and the number that would be revealed would correspond to a thing listed in the attached sheets of paper. I scanned the pages hoping to find a house and lot or at least a brand new car for a bonus, but no avail. hehehe. The bonuses ranges from around 3 pesos to a hundred bucks.

No. 15. Scanning through the papers, it clearly indicated that i'll take with me a LUCKY ME BEEF INSTANT NOODLES as a bonus. Hehehe. Not bad i said. The staff handed me the noodle pack, smiled and said, "Mam, may pang meryenda na kayo."

LUCKY ME. Yeah. It dawned on me how lucky i really am. Prudence was the better part of the valour. To harbor a bunch of grit to be able to pluck myself from the obscurities of my being. To be on my own mettle, a goad that gets to bask in the limelight of each day. To continue to live a life a couple of notches better than the other. Will i be able to do it?

Awr.

TETE-A-TETE

May 26, 2008. 12:02am. My phone was ringing, slightly illuminating my dark room in these unholy hours. I thought such was an alarm. Medicine mode. Still in trance, i reached for my phone in the headboard and press the outermost right key with the sole red markings. Ahihihi. I could almost perfect the deed of drug imbibition in this wee hours with my hands in auto-pilot mode, my eyes closed, my spirit half awake and half in deep slumber, my soul still wandering in the placidity of my dreams.

Right after a pill globetrotted its way to my ill-possessed entity, the phone rang again and blinked. I opened my eyes, reached for my phone again and stared blankly at the lcd:

Call

I pressed the outermost left key with green mark and lifted the phone to my ears as an instant reflex.

"Hello?" My voice was quite husky.

"Happy Birthday!"

It took my stimuli 5 seconds to process the voice on the other line. Then i found myself twinkling upon recognition of this beloved caller. Tete-a-tete. By this time i was already full awake and i could almost perceive a pizazz on the backdrop.

I cannot recount in full details what we have had talked in that limited minutes. All i couldn't forget is that my Kuya Melvin greeted me in the first minutes of my 27th natal day.

GOD'S MESSAGE FOR ME TODAY

Dear lois,

Happy, happy Birthday!
On this same day some years ago, God brought into the world a wonderful child destined to love and be loved and do great things. Never forget your destiny. Never forget who you are!

Conquer this new week with God's Word in your heart!

Praying for you,

Bo Sanchez

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
“…all things are possible with God.” – Mark 10:27
Mom only had P20 in her wallet. Aside from lunch, she prayed that God provide a way for her to pay my youngest brother’s tuition. She was about to leave when a long-time friend came, treated her to lunch and gave her an envelope. She said, “I sensed the Lord wanted me to help you.” In the envelope was money, more than enough for what she prayed for.
Vannie had to undergo surgery that would cost more than P100,000. She was a full-time servant in community and only received an allowance. But great was her faith in the Lord’s provision. People came not just to pray but also to contribute to her surgery fund. In just two days, Vannie received much more than what she needed.
My brother Sio suffered from extreme pain in his abdomen. In the hospital, doctors required him to undergo some tests to find out what was ailing him. While he was having an ultrasound, Mom prayed the Rosary in the corridor. A stranger, a woman wearing a pink blouse, approached Mom and said, “You’re son’s going to be OK.” When Sio was brought back to the room, he no longer felt any pain and the doctors couldn’t explain how he was healed.
Indeed, all things are possible with God! Dina Pecaña
REFLECTION:
God will always come to your aid at the exact moment you need to receive His help.
Lord God, Provider of all I need, thank You for Your generous and faithful provision.
St. Philip Neri, priest, pray for us.

1st READING
During economic turmoil the price of gold rises as investors seek a safe haven for their money. This captures the materialistic ethic so prevalent in today’s world. There’s so much talk of interest rates, bond rates, exchange rates, stock prices and so on. But how much do we talk about turning back to God and other matters such as virtue, holiness and eternal life? I am not advocating a sort of unthinking fideism as the solution to the world’s economic woes. However, I am questioning if we have the right focus.
1 Peter 1:3-9
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his great mercy gave us a new birth to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you 5 who by the power of God are safeguarded through faith, to a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the final time. 6 In this you rejoice, although now for a little while you may have to suffer through various trials, 7 so that the genuineness of your faith, more precious than gold that is perishable even though tested by fire, may prove to be for praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 8 Although you have not seen him you love him; even though you do not see him now yet believe in him, you rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy, 9 as you attain the goal of [your] faith, the salvation of your souls.
P S A L M
Psalm 111:1-2, 5-6, 9 and 10c
R: The Lord will remember his covenant for ever.
1 I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart in the company and assembly of the just. 2 Great are the works of the LORD, exquisite in all their delights. (R) 5 He has given food to those who fear him; he will forever be mindful of his covenant. 6 He has made known to his people the power of his works, giving them the inheritance of the nations. (R) 9 He has sent deliverance to his people; he has ratified his covenant forever; holy and awesome is his name. 10 His praise endures forever. (R)
G O S P E L
Riches have nothing to do with the guarantee of eternal life. Wealth is not necessarily a sign of God’s blessing. Too many fortunes are made with little or no regard for the dignity human persons who are downtrodden in the name of economic progress and success. The only guarantee that a rich person has is that he/she will be held accountable for the use of all their riches. Perhaps this is not such an attractive prospect any more?
Mark 10:17-27
17 As Jesus was setting out on a journey, a man ran up, knelt down before him, and asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 Jesus answered him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; you shall not defraud; honor your father and your mother.’ ” 20 He replied and said to him, “Teacher, all of these I have observed from my youth.” 21 Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, “You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to [the] poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.” 22 At that statement his face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions. 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!” 24 The disciples were amazed at his words. So Jesus again said to them in reply, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to pass through [the] eye of [a] needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” 26 They were exceedingly astonished and said among themselves, “Then who can be saved?” 27 Jesus looked at them and said, “For human beings it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God.”
my reflections
think:
What worldy possessions am I attached to?

--------------------

SPIRITUAL WALK LEADS TO SPIRITUAL THIRST
People on the go always bring bottled drinking water with them. First, this is a sign of our times indicating that good, clean drinking water is now a priced commodity. This is how much we have abused Mother Nature. Gone are the days when clean water was easily obtained. Second, this makes us realize that traveling exhausts us and makes us thirsty.
In our spiritual walk, we also become thirsty. Once we launch into a living relationship with God, we are never the same. The nature of the thirst, however, is quite different. We thirst not because we are exhausted spiritually; we thirst because our exposure to prayer and spirituality whets our appetite for more. Our living relationship with God transforms us, and deepens our appreciation for transcendence. This is what the rich man in the Gospel experienced. After years of journeying through faithfulness in the commandments, he was asking Jesus’ directions on how to experience a deeper spirituality. Meditating on the response of Jesus, we see that:
ü SPIRITUAL DEEPENING MEANS SIMPLIFICATION. While we try to fill our lives with many things, and we feel material advancement through the accumulation of material possessions, spiritual deepening makes us realize the emptiness amidst material affluence. We are never really satisfied. In fact, we realize that more material possessions means more anxiety for their maintenance and upkeep. We become possessed by our possessions. So, spiritual deepening calls us to let go of the extras and live with the basics.
ü SPIRITUAL DEEPENING INVOLVES “GOING OUT.” The more we touch base with our inner human core – with the goodness inside us — the more we realize that we cannot but live in solidarity with the rest of our fellowmen. Pity turns into compassion; service become s apostolate; dole-out becomes true “giving to the poor” with the heart, and from the heart.Fr. Domie Guzman
Reflection Question:
The rich man was frightened by the demand of spiritual deepening, and he walked away. Are you ready to take on the demands of spiritual maturity?
Jesus, I desire to deepen my personal relationship with You. I pray for the grace to enrich and enliven this by living a simple life of prayer and service.
St. Philip Neri, priest, pray for us.


THANKS A LOT

Thanks a lot to all my online and offline friends who always make each day better than yesterday.
I love you all. Later na ang drama ha. heheheh.

BLESSED



I am such a blessed girl to have them all through these years.
CLUB T with ADY.

We had an small gathering at Doc Joy's lair last night. An advance birthday party, i am so overwhelmed to have spent time with my highschool friends. We had a great time stuffing our stomachs and babbling with stories. Hehehehe. Thanks to all of you who made this party possible. Jojo and she for the litson manok, joy for the rice and viand and venue, yeth for the ice cream, sheim for the sparkling wine with 1,50% vol (nyahahahah), ady for the attendance and for the Herculean effort of being awake.. hahaha (ady, mabuti ng walang tulog kesa walang gising!!!) For lai, and iyen... we damn missed both of you so please block out your calendars and have yourselves ready in our next out-of-town adventure to be organized by yeth.

Yeth, sheim and i stayed overnight and did non-stop blabbering til almost 3am. We all both look perfect in Joy's scrub suits. hihihih. It was really hilarious when Joy and I related to them our adventure with Mario, the luko-luko, whom i thought almost killed us back then. Hehehehe. (Kaya 2nd life na natin 'to doc joy... hahahha... ) We also had a simple run-down of the whereabouts of some of our highschool classmates.

Again, thanks a bunch for the awesome bonding :)

REFRESHER


Familiar faces stood in front of me. It was as if i am at the colegio.

Ahihihi. Joe pring, my college mentor, welcomed me at the seminar. He introduced me to the former LMES president which happens to be the present secretary of the PSME, Engr. Nerie. I am quite a bit surprised to see that this lady engineer is really a girly-girl :D Her super relaxed straight hair runs through her waist i wonder how much is she spending for that crowning glory. heheheh. Back in our college days, machismo prided our organization. It's kinda fulfilling on my part to see these girls leading an organization in a male-dominated world.

I also happen to come close to my former autocad students whom Joe pring had invited likewise. They are all currently reviewing for the board exam in... of course, sir joe pring's review center (san ka pa! ahehehe. maraket talaga 'tong si sir **giggles**) When I whispered to him, "Sir, puro mga students ko sa autocad ah..." he whispered back, "Oo nga maam, puro students mo kami.. pero ako hindi pumapasok..." then he chuckled. Ah i remember! my former college professor who became my autocad student who never attended my autocad class. tsk tsk.

A swarm of professionals in the room. Mechanical engineers. Former chapter presidents and all big names in the industry and academe. Somehow, i could feel a sense of belongingness in this room where our profession is being honored. Admittedly, back in my work, i know i am never recognized for who i am and what i have, all i know is that they just suck the life and brains out of me. Just like that. No recognitions. No thank yous. No sense of belongingness. Trabaho lang.

I'm so afraid i'd get sleepy for the whole technical discussions due to lack of sleep. But having given a refresher on pumps, fans and blowers, i found my brain meshing in full gears, keeping me awake for the whole discussion. It did stirred the sleeping formulas and theories in my idle brain. One really needs to be constantly reminded of the things that have been learned in the past.

While on a break, i was sitting in the corner of the room killing time with a Blokus challenge in the PSP. An engineer from Nestle stroked a conversation with me, and i realize it's a bit entertaining talking to a real person than blocking my opponents in the Blokus game :D Just plain-hi-and-hello-and-where-are-you-from-and-
others-of-that-getting-to-know-thing.


I am inspired by how Hon. Alfredo Y. Po, Chairman of the Board of Mechanical Engineering, climbed his way to success. Starting off as an engineer in the Asia Brewery, he became a titan in the mechanical engineering world through diligence, service and perseverance. He is now the chairman of all the examiners in the PRC, and is very proud to have noted that he was the founding chairman of PSME-Laguna (QBL-Host) Chapter, for the reason that all his colleagues from this chapter have been very, very proud of what he has become. And now, i am too. He was encouraging all the engineers to continually study, keep abreast of the technical advancements, and strive to learn new things about our profession. He also encouraged us to upgrade to be professional mechanical engineers, and admittedly, i was moved by his inspirational talk, and the thoughts of filing an application to be a professional mechanical engineer (PME) have been roaming 'round my stupid head.

It was a very educational and inspiring day for me. Another mind-boggling thought at the end of this activity is when Sir Joe asked me to teach in his review center. Hmmnnn... " Sa review ko naman ikaw magturo!" says he.

**thinking**

RAKET MUNA

As always, it was an exhausting day of work yesterday.. having gone through a more-than-two-hour-meeting-with-all-the-attendees-smoking-
and-i-am-the-only-one-inhaling-their-second-hand-smoke.
I could feel that in two weeks time, I'll be diagnosed with lung cancer. If only i could force myself to smoke cancer stick, then maybe i won't have any trouble complaining to this blog how i would want my lungs killed.

Good thing i am off from that meeting table for a day, and will just be attending a technical seminar sponsored by the Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers-Laguna QBL (host) chapter. Even more good because i am on official business with a day's pay, the registration fee shouldered by the company.

After the seminar, i'll be meeting my highschool buddies at doc Joy's lair. We'll be having my advance birthday party :D ahihihihih.

Got to go for now.

PS:

More than 48hrs offline at yahoo messenger. Oh what an accomplishment :D weeeeeee

TO CURL OR NOT TO CURL

I was curling my hair last night when the power suddenly went off. Gggrrr. I promised Ate Kimi that I'd be showing her a picture of my curled hair. I'm planning to have my hair curled kase instead of having it trimmed.

Well, this is what it partially looked like....


What do you think?

To curl or not to curl?







*********

I was asking my officemate Randy if i would look ok with my hair curled. He just laughed and said, "Para kang sasagala..hahaha.. "


GGggrrrrrrrrrr..

ATROPHIED

I am so exhausted.

Been working for 12 hours a day since yesterday..and i must say my body could no longer endure long hours of real damn hard work.


I committed to unopen my messenger til the end of May. But im quite not sure how long i'd be able to fool myself. Hehe. Mami Sultry had given me an initial challenge of three days. 24 hours had long past.. kerstinne25 is still offline.. weeeeeeeeeee. Accomplishment na ito :D

I still got an hour to kill. My mind has stopped functioning i guess. I'm planning to work on undertime tomorrow but im pretty sure the possibility is so slim... got a meeting in the morning and in the afternoon. I have been tasked with a very challenging work and it would be a shame should i not meet their expectations.

My body is getting weaker and weaker each day, i could feel its atrophy extending through my brains. I have been controlling my emotions because there are so many things to prioritize and if i give in to the dictates of my emotions, i'd probably stoke myself to fury.

I haven't put a kibosh on the matters of these stupid things because i know for a fact that i am not yet ready to face it. To froth in the mouth over it while curling the same mouth into a sneer.. is.. my stupidity. So while i'm still healing over the things that have long hurt me .. i'll just allow myself to be snibbed inside this forging plant and serve all the masters here. If i don't get a good appraisal come month of June, then i guess... the signs are coming....

bwahahahaha

My sister stood in front of my door. Donned in her pantulog, she sneered while clutching her pillows, her kumot hanging in her arms extending almost on the carpeted floor. Standing behind her is tanya, the baby shitzu,sniffling at her thighs while wagging its tail.

"Ate, tabi tayo matulog ha."

She smiled. Stepped inside the room. Threw her kumot & pillow on the bed after removing my pile of newly washed clothes.

"Sobrang ginaw kase sa kwarto ko, tabi muna tayo ha," tucked herself to bed and set in for a deep slumber.

If she only knew how much i have been chillin', not from the temperature drop brought by the pouring rain outside....... but from the coldness i have been feeling from deep within......

The next day, she admitted she was disturbed at the sight of the bank robbery victims' horrendous blood stricken body trailing through her mind. She felt too uncomfortable to sleep alone. I, On the other hand, would want to utter how the vestige of those good old happy sweet caring days wouldn't depart from my memory and ironically, has caused me too much discomfort I'd just want to douse myself with a warm water in order for me to unite with my sanity.

TORN

I'm quite not sure if the pity party is over.
I could still see myself staring blandly into nothingness, and as if the hands of the clock would stop momentarily to wait until my consciousness and sanity come back to life.

My whole gamut of emotion is at bay. I asked myself why i allow these things to happen to me... again and again and again. Was it my fault that i allowed to be persuaded by a rosy blissfulness? Or am i too fumbling in dealing with things acting as a mirage in my sundry situations?

A fluke of nature or so to speak?

or

Did i really just spun counterclockwise to rob the planet of its angular momentum, slowed its spin the tiniest bit, lengthened the night, pushed back the dawn... to give me a little more time here... with... ****




I cry my emptiness to the heavens.


My last vestige of gaiety has been sitting on a patch of sunlight as i bellowed and plotz with joy before reasons gone berserk. I couldn't understand these things. I couldn't even quantify the gravity of the gash i have inflicted on myself.

This suffering partakes of that trauma in essence, if not in scale.

I must muster the courage to harbor the strength i needed to patch things up..again and again and again....

Monday, May 19, 2008

I thanked emotero for sending this message this morning:

Just for today, decide to be happy, to live with what is yours. If you can't have what you want, maybe you can like what you have.

Just for today, decide to be kind, cheerful, be agreeable, be understanding, be your best, dress your best, talk softly, look for the bright side of things, praise people instead of criticizing them.

Just for today, try it, after all, it's just for a day. Who knows you might like it and do it again tomorrow.


Constant reminder such as this keeps my happiness meter in its target level. Any attempt to wane it will be counteracted by mechanisms to prevent it from diminution.

And of course, i did try.

And i am happy. Bukas ulit :)

Ate kims... thanks for this one...
I love you too also..
And i'm thankful that you are here...
Rock on!

Angel



Angel
Sarah Mclachlan

Spend all your time waiting
for that second chance
For the break that will make it OK
There´s always some reason
to feel not good enough
And it´s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
or a beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty
and weightless and maybe
I´ll find some peace tonight
In the arms of the Angel
far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room,
and the endlessness that you feel
You are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
You´re in the arms of the Angel;
may you find
some comfort here
So tired of the straight line,
and everywhere you turn
There´s vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting,
you keep on building the lies
That make up for all that you lack
It don´t make no difference,
escape one last time
It´s easier to believe
In this sweet madness,
oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees
In the arms of the Angel
far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room,
and the endlessness that you feel
You are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
You´re in the arms of the Angel;
may you find
some comfort here
In the arms of the Angel;
may you find
some comfort here

TRANCE

What has been killing me right now?

A pain caused not by an honest truth, but a pain i have inflicted on myself.

I am stupid.

Damned.

I remember the things that i want to do to our IT personnels when my blogsite was blocked. Ain't these the very same things that i wanna do to myself right now?


  • condemn to an eternity of torment.
  • threaten her in full steam and venom.
  • hit with thunderbolts
  • stripped layer by layer, skin by skin, like a butcher peels off the hide from a dead animal
  • have my body flogged
  • singe my back with a dragon's breath

Pain is only temporary. And i believe that we are all made for happy endings.

I can't eat. I can't sleep. The symptoms are back. All because i allowed this to happen. Silly me.
WTF.

Gotta rest for now. I've been sitting here since 1230pm and it's quarter past midnight.

I'm crap.

my blogspot was blocked!

if i could just pack a wallop equivalent to an atomic bomb...ggrrrrrrr...

i could still access the www.blogger.com site, and could even reach my dashboard. it's just that the blog itself couldn't be accessed. http://kerstinne25.blogspot.com/

poor me.

i'd like to condemn our IT to an eternity of torment.

threaten them in full steam and venom.

proclaim with much disdain their brazen act of iniquity

hit them with thunderbolts

stripped them layer by layer, skin by skin, like a butcher peels off the hide from a dead animal

i will have their bodies flogged

i will singe their backs with my dragon's breath

let this be a bode apocalypse for our IT before i die from sheer apoplexy

i am aghast at the scourge afflicting my internet connection.

but i can only sigh mea culpa. nyahahahah. im at work and i should be WORKING. :lmao:

PSME HOLD UP




I had my PRC License renewed days before my natal day. The process isn't that painful as compared to other government offices where the long lines, red tape, and discourteous clerks are discouraging enough. UNLESS....

....unless your professional organizational connives with the Professional Regulations Commission in the collection of its membership fees. Sapilitan. Ninegosyo. Wapak.

In my case, i felt it was like a hold up. I was shocked to be informed that my PRC License cannot be processed if i haven't paid my membership in the Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers (PSME) . I was next in the assessment window when the man behind me asked if my profession is mechanical engineering. Having answered yes, he showed me the receipt from the PSME and instructed me to proceed first to its office located on the 3rd floor of San Lorenzo Building outside the PRC office. He said i won't be entertained at the assessment window without that receipt.

I then proceeded to the PSME office and shocked i was to shell out two thousand and one hundred pesos (Php2100) as payment for the three-year membership. Huhuhuhu.

The renewal process didn't last for 15minutes (excluding the processing of the PSME membership). Maybe because it was already 430pm and there are only few professionals processing their requirements in the office.

For the sake of my friends who are about to renew their license this year... here are the requirements:

REQUIREMENTS

1. Duly accomplished form ("Application for Professional ID"--this is PRC REG Form No. 003, Rev. July 2003. Get this from the information booth located on the right side past the entrance gate. It's printed on green paper. One form ONLY per PRC ID to be renewed.)

2. Two (2) pieces passport size picture: close-up, colored, with plain background.

3. Photocopy of recent professional ID card


PROCEDURES

Step1. Proceed to PSME Office (3rd Floor San Lorenzo Building in front of PRC) and have your membership renewed. Pay a whooping Php2100. Get certification and receipt.

Step 1a. Present duly accomplished form, pictures and PRC ID photocopy and PSME Receipt at Window 27, which will point you out to transact in window 30. nyahahah.

Step 1b. Application form will be checked for completeness, and your PSME receipt shall be checked also.

Step 2. Pay prescribed fees at the cashier (P450 if without surcharges)

Step 3. Return to Window 30 with form and official receipt. Clerk will detach "ID Claim Slip" portion from application form and indicate claim date. Get your claim slip.

Step 4. Claim your professional ID as scheduled. This is usually ready within 12 working days from the date of application. (Releasing of IDs is done at Windows 31. Remember that you can only claim your professional ID if you present your original claim slip. For representatives, a letter of authorization is needed. PRC is very strict about these matters.)

Optional: You may opt to have your PRC ID delivered at your doorstep at minimal charges. In my case, i chose to have mine delivered by 2GO courier. I paid 70php (Provincial charge) and gave them my claim slip. Expect maximum of three days after the release date for delivery schedule. Just present the receipt upon delivery, though a valid ID will do also.

Thanks ate Sheila for accompanying me in PRC. Otherwise, i would really have to act as if it was a hold-up by the Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers.

STUPIDITY


I just want to stare blankly at the monitor and tell myself how stupid i have been for the last few days.

I just want to free myself from some stupid things that have been happening to me lately. But i guess i haven't freed myself that much. I still got a lump in my throat. I guess i can't do it.

Ye. I can't. Duh. :panic:

I really can't. GGggrrrrrrrrr.

How could i just freely say what i feel. Ggggrrrrrrrrr.

Doesn't sound so good.

GGggrrrrrrrr.

UMBRELLA

Ate Kimi and I had a great time taking a dekko for some stuffs.. and gaping at the shawls and ipod lego-like speaker and ppc and other electronic gadgets .. nyahahhaa... I had a great time with her as always and I'm thankful that my world is more colorful because she's in it.

After an appetizing meal at Pancake House, we found out that the heaven is weeping copiously outside and we will be drenched in furious rain should we race to go home. I have with me my umbrella but holy crap it won't open no matter what i do ... so we both decided to purchase rain protection for both of us.. She got the black one and i got the blue color.











"When the sun shine,

we shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath I'ma stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh) "

Ate kims... i love you always.. thanks for being a very, very nice sister to me and i appreciate everything :) Thanks for the friendship and rest assured that no matter what happens...i will always love you.. mwahhhhhhhhhhhh...

IF ONLY

there are times that i want to tell someone how my day has been soooooo brighter because he's there but choose not to because...

ala lang.


hindi ko din alam e.



and there's this feeling that if only, i can brighten up his bad day.. i'd cross oceans and rivers and climb every mountains just to be there .. but then... i can only say..

Pahinga ka na. Sleep tight.God bless.

Then i'd just shut up.

How to Stay Young and Happy Always :-)

How to Stay Young and Happy Always :-)

1. Throw out nonessential numbers.
This includes age, weight, and height.

Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.



2. Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down.

(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)



3. Keep learning:

Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever.
Never let the brain get idle.
'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!


4. Enjoy the simple things


5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him or her!


6. The tears happen:

Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourself.
LIVE while you are alive.


7 Surround yourself with what you love:

Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.


8. Cherish your health:

If it is good, preserve it.
If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.


9. Don't take guilt trips.
Take a trip to the mall, even to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is


10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

Thanks Jojo for this email :D

PUFFY AMIYUMI

Nyahahaha. I love this. OOhhhh la la.

Actually, i don't know Puffy Amiyumi from the cartoon network. Seldom do i watch that because primarily, ain't have cable network subscription at home. I used to be fond of watching classic cartoons like Betty Boop and Felix the Cat, also a die-hard fan of Bugs Bunny, Pluto, Goofy, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge McDuck and his Huey, Dewey, Louie.. and others. When the Powerpuff era came, i wasn't that interested in cartoons anymore, neither was i hooked on Anime.. though i must admit that there are afternoons that i'd love to be tickled by Ranma 1/2. As of the moment, im still waiting for the perfect time when Coyote would be able to finally catch roadrunner.Beep Beep!

And so I just spotted this cute teeny-weeny knick-knack when i was buying a new monitor and i just felt i can't leave the store without having them in my cart. (Impulsive that is! :lmao:) It's so cute i bought another one for my sister.






*************

let's get to know more about Puffy Amiyumi from wikipedia:

Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi is an Annie Award-nominated American animated television series produced by Renegade Animation for the Cartoon Network. The show was created by Sam Register, who also serves as the series' executive producer.

According to Register, the target audience of the show is boys and girls from six to sixteen years old. However, the show also has a following of fans of the real-life Ami Onuki and Yumi Yoshimura who make up the J-pop duo PUFFY, known as "Puffy AmiYumi" in North America. Register, a fan of the band, wished to spread its fame to other parts of the world and thus produced the cartoon.

The series features the adventures of animated versions of the band. It has been immensely popular in Japan since making its debut in 1996. The group now has several U.S. albums to its credit—including a 2004 companion album to this program—and was known to viewers of Cartoon Network in the USA for performing the theme to the animated series of Teen Titans comics.

Concept

The cartoon was produced entirely in the United States (the only series that does this full time) using a combination of Macromedia Flash and traditional cel animation.[1] Each program was 30 minutes long (with commercials) and featured three seven-minute segments that borrow inspiration from Japanese animation.

During the first season, the show included short clips of the real Ami and Yumi making childish commentary (in English and nonsubtitled Japanese) at the beginning and end of each episode. They only performed short clips at the beginning of the show during the second and third seasons. Starting with the second season, the duo was sometimes shown holding title cards introducing the cartoon segments. At the end of the episode "Sitcomi Yumi", Ami and Yumi watch TV and see the animated Kaz with the real Ami and Yumi.

The real Puffy AmiYumi performs the cartoon's theme song (which is also in Japanese, German, Spanish, and Portuguese in the respective regions), and many episodes feature one or more of the duo's songs playing in the background, along with music by their Puerto Rico muse Andy Sturmer.

The animated Puffy AmiYumi travel all over the world in their tour bus. While appearing the same size as a regular bus on the outside, it appears to have enough internal space to house the girls' rooms (including full-sized beds), Kaz' room, their equipment, and several televisions and computers, among other things. In the episode "Domo", Kaz refers to an upstairs area. It also seems capable of running on autopilot, as many episodes have Kaz, Ami, and Yumi sitting in the rear cabin of the bus while traveling. Several times, the rear door has been opened to receive packages, which a boy on a scooter usually delivers.

Though the characters speak English, the script occasionally intersperses their vernacular with Japanese speech, especially when the characters react to events that they find to be surprising. Calling out "Tasukete!" instead of "Help!" is commonly used. While Kawaye and Young speak fluent Japanese, DeLisle learned how to speak some of the language in the series thanks to both her castmates (this is also evident in the episode of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy titled "My Peeps").

Despite mostly negative reviews, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi has gained a cult following for both fans of the band and fans of cartoons. It is said to be one of CN's greatest shows and one of the better "New age" Cartoon Cartoon.

Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi depicts characters with the same name and profession as the actual Puffy members but with different appearances and exaggerated personalities as well as the tendency to break the fourth wall:

* Ami Onuki (pronounced /'?mi/), the younger one of the duo is depicted as a peppy, optimistic, and cute girl with rose hair and eyes. She favors bubblegum pop and wears a 1960's go-go dress, also sporting a flower in her hair and white knee-high go-go boots. Janice Kawaye provides Ami's upbeat voice.


* Yumi Yoshimura (pronounced /'umi/), the older of the duo, is depicted as a cynical, sarcastic punk rocker with lavender hair and eyes. She dresses in a heavy metal/grunge/goth style with studded necklaces and bracelets, a light purple T-shirt with a skull that has the same facial expressions as she does and seems to have a mind of its own, a black miniskirt, purple bike shorts, and black army boots. Yumi is voiced by Grey DeLisle.


* Kaz Harada is the duo's well-intentioned yet money-grubbing manager, whose successes are usually balanced out by his foolish decisions. His appearance and name are based on Puffy AmiYumi's real-life manager, Kaz Harada. Veteran character actor Keone Young provides his voice. He is also a huge fan of sumo wrestling, as seen in the episode "Sumo Kaz". When asked his opinion on his animated likeness during a panel at the 2005 Otacon event, the real Kaz Harada admitted that he had never actually seen the show.

* Jang Keng and Tekirai are Yumi's and Ami's pet cats, respectively. The girls adore their cats, but Kaz is a constant victim of their the animal's mischief. Ms. Kawaye voices Tekirai ("Teki" for short) while Mrs. DeLisle does Jang Keng (sometimes called "Jengo").
