my afternoon stroll at Paseo de Sta.Rosa

I went to Paseo de Sta. Rosa this afternoon to have my passport picture printed at the nearest Kodak Center. I was quite indeed in a hurry to reach home at 4 in the afternoon, so that I would be able to bring my forms to the testing office just in time before 5.

I can't remember the last time I've been to Paseo de Sta.Rosa, it must have been months since i took a stroll, or had a hearty meal with friends, though most of the times i passed in this commercial center on my way to Nuvali or Tagaytay. There has been a lot of construction and extension going on in Paseo de Sta. Rosa, maybe in a few year's time, the area would be a boom. Of course, it has to keep up with the current and fast improvement that has been going on at the rival site Nuvali. Nuvali has flourished to be a good provider of leisure, dining and shopping, and Paseo de Sta. Rosa has to beat that, being a player for the longest years. Paseo de Sta. Rosa started out as a country market which serves the neighbors who were lazy enough to go downtown, and where Wet and dry goods were at hand. It used to be the center of appetite from all walks of life, from to fancy restaurants to everyday feast held at the market side, from trike drivers to factory workers to businessmen and women, from shorts and sando to polo jackets and coat and ties. Through the years, it has gone through a lot of transformation, developments and expansion.

And since i haven't been in this area for quite marijuana years, i was a bit shocked yesterday to find some shops already closed. Maybe for a change i guess. To transfer to a better location, to cater to more consumers, i just do not know. All i know is that i saw empty spaces of used-to-be familiar stores and hollow area of used-to-be-familiar stuffs, including the Kodak Printing Center.

This goes to say my plans were put kaput.

I resolved to just push through with my plans on Wednesday, reschedule the submission of requirements and just stroll around the area to see more of dead businesses. lol.

I happen to pass by on a dress shop on the other parallel side of closed Kodak Center. I scanned their items to check if something would be of interest to me. The saleslady was sweet, I had a nice conversation with her.(Read: Salestalk)  I asked about the closure of the shops and she said that the Kodak was closed months ago. She also narrated that most people would ask them where it was relocated, but they wouldn't know. After fitting an item, i paid for it and went out. I then remembered a printing shop down at Paseo de Sta. Rosa 3, and headed to the direction. I was groping for my phone inside the bag, but i couldn't find it. I went inside the ladies room and scanned by bag, but still couldn't find my phone. Using my other phone, i dialed the number and heard it rang, but i can't find the thing around. I rushed back to the shop where i got a purchase and told the lady if i could check the fitting room for my missing mobile. The owner immediately let me in, but i found none. He asked me to continue calling the missing phone, in hopes that the person who found it would be kind enough to return it back. He called the guard and asked to call him back should someone surrender a phone in the lost and found office. He was very kind to assist me. Having a gut feeling that i could have left my phone in my car, i rushed back to check and.. yes.. my bb was there. (crappy me)

So there goes my afternoon stroll at Paseo de Sta.Rosa. It was quite an afternoon, thought I lost my phone… again. And the pictures? I'll just have it printed later at SM.

Pressure washer hose

Pressure wash hose is your best companion for all your cleaning needs. 

To remove molds, grime, chalk-like residue, dust, loose paint, mud and dirt from surfaces, the pressure wash hose plays a vital role in keeping clean the areas of the buildings as well as vehicles and road surfaces. Spraying at high velocities is a good way to dislodge unwanted elements in a surface.

As every cleaning job requires the right equipment, it is imperative that you choose the right type of pressure wash hose to be used. It has a direct effect on how well the cleaning job gets done. The right pressure for a washer hose should be so carefully selected, as pressure wash hoses come in a lot of different sizes and styles, each designed to match a specific cleaning function. The selection requires a bit of knowledge on some of the things you'll need to consider before your procurement.

The strength, durability and function of the pressure wash hose are the primary concern when acquiring one. The hose must sustain the pressure that is required by your specific type of cleaning. They must be durable enough to practically handle without damage your cleaning specifications. There are varieties of pressure wash hose available in the market and as the user; you must exercise careful planning and selection. In addition, there are also a number of accessories for the washing system to couple with the pressure wash hose such as couplers connectors, ball valves, hose barbs and reinforced tubing to ensure that the cleaning job would be a breeze. Be sure to pick the best pressure wash hose that best fits your cleaning needs.

A pressure wash hose should be operated with due regards to safety. The pressure-driven water coming out of the nozzle is powerful, as this is ejected at high velocities. The cleaning process could dislodge objects from the surface being cleaned at top velocities. Burst pressure from the hose should always be considered so as not to directly aim at some objects and propel it in unintended directions. This is extremely high pressure, so keep the wand and the water away from any electrical wire or devices. Before you start, protect any fixtures, plants and other breakable objects with bags, drop cloths and duct tapes. Operate the pressure wash hose with both hands, and work your way closer to the surface until you feel the spray that is strong enough but not too strong. For best cleaning action, you can adjust the distance back and forth as you hold the nozzle.
When you have to keep it really clean, nothing does better than having a pressure wash hose at hand. So take care of your pressure wash hose just as you take care of the things that you clean. After use, drain all the water from the hose and pack it for storage and easy retrieval for next usage. You can coil it on a hose hanger, wide bracket, or reel, but do not hang on a sharp nail or hook. Never twist or curve in something linear or bend sharply to prevent premature cracking. Do not tug on the hose when you want a kink to be eliminated.   Instead, work your way by using your hands to remove the kink, avoid the kinks to settle permanently in the hose as this is where frequent sprout leaks originate. Clean out also the fittings prior to storage. Such safekeeping will keep the prolonged life of your pressure wash hose.

all i need

Rest. That’s all I need. Now.

Gotta go at 3.



Was quite a mess at the onset of the week. I was kind of sick last Monday, but then I had to render overtime til 7pm to finish some job assignments. So yesterday, I was bolted to bed, oh the weak princess. Headache, sorethroat, cough, colds and others of that ilk, how I hate these unwelcomed and uninvited visitors. They feasted on me yesterday, it’s so sad that my antibodies are too late to respond. I lost my voice already, but then again, I have to report to work today because of the pending work.

Oh life and weakling me.

Can’t take care of myself that much anymore. LOL.

God uses broken things

Vance Havner says: God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume… God uses mightily those who have been hurt deeply and in this aspect, brokenness is a great blessing.

I was wonderin’ if I could turn this office into a library so that it would be proper to see my boss just reading a book instead of working on his dumb ass.

Man, I even wonder if he could understand what he is reading.

Dear boss,

Your grammar is a disaster.

And so is your leadership.

You suck.

It's a lonesome night.

Tired myself doin' stuffs like weeding out the garden, burning dried weeds and trashes, car washing sweetie, shoveling the gravel and sand, fixing my jurassic-aged pc (epic fail), and spic and spanning around.

My head aches.

My heart weeps.

It's a lonesome night.

Gained a lot of pounds the past week's vacation. The breakfast,lunch and dinner buffer had taken its toll, my clothes were starting to tight-hug me.

But it was indeed awesome week.

I just have to shred the extra pounds NOW.

Sana bato na lang din ako.


in a while

Most of the times, i just couldn't contain my emotions i wanna scream out loud to release the tension, pressure, and pain.

I'll do it in a while.



Same spot

I stopped at the same spot where i had my most romantic night with the moon. For sixty seconds, everything came to life.. the majestic lamp in the canvass above along with the memories. It is indeed ironic how the happiest memories could bring so much pain and tears when brought to the fore.

Goodnight and good morning :)

It's a fine and sunny weather. My mind at work is barely functioning, already off to a vacation. I wish time would speed up so that I can march my way home. I really need some time off from this hell.


wanna join?

I sometimes feel lost in the haze of unchartered destiny. I seem to be yearning for things to happen, but then suddenly most plans go kaput. So there goes the Plan B, but then again, I find it hard to regain strength for me to conquer the battles again. But surrendering isn't on my vocabulary; i will strive harder and move farther until I reach my goals. Wanna join me? :))
