anong petsa na!!

i found a piece of paper, torn-out leaf of steno notebook to be exact, while tidying my wallet. barely recognizing the penmanship, i immediately read the hadwritten material and started laughing my heart out!! Girl, what were we thinking that time?? why we came to this idea??
..syempre nagreminisce ako to figure it out :-D

September 11, 2004: After your check up in Makati Medical City, we decided to treat ourselves with a sumptuous lunch in G3. Big Buddha was offering an "eat-all-you-can" promo so we gave in despite your doctor's advice of avoiding "flavored" food! hehe pasaway! Then we talked about your condition, wishing that you had a special someone at the moment to marry you.. then you gonna bear a child.. and you will live happily ever after.. we were dreaming! and laughing! and of course hoping! then while giggling and enjoying our food, a sweet couple passed our table, wow, so girl yung babae..very pretty, neatly dressed and accesorized! we were enchanted by her beauty, wished that we could be liked her!... then... ahhhh.... hmmmm... oh, i can no longer remember what's next and how/why we came up to this covenant! yeah, covenant as i call it 'coz it has our signatures!.. and yes, you also have a copy of this as i recall, just dunno if you still have it until today :-)

so what was on the covenant? here, be ready for a laugh! :-D
~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~
1. By December 18, 2004, we are going to introduce our boyfriends.
2. We will be in a lady-like attire on that day.
3. We are going to save PhP5,000 from our Christmas bonuses until January 8, 2005.
** Whoever fails #1 condition will shoulder all the expenses on January 8, 2005.
** Whoever fails #2 condition will give the other party a beauty product/accesories worth PhP1000.
** Whoever fails condition #3 will suffer a consequence!!!

we agreed not to discuss this covenant to anyone nor to ourseleves until January 8, 2005.
~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~

the truth is, neither of us took the covenant seriously! can't remember if we indeed met on Dec 18, 2004 but as far as i can remember, we cancelled the covenant while pampering ourselves in "The Spa" during one of those weekends of Dec 04.. for an obvious reason - neither of us are prepared to meet any condition hehe!

Girl, 2006 na! both of us are still unattached.. bugoy pa rin manamit.. and perhaps wala ring saving!! hehe.. but we're both HAPPY and that's good enough :-)

prayers for 2006

  • good health

last quarter of 2005 had been awful!... Kyla's surgical operation, Mama's fluctuating blood pressure, VJ and Ate Tel's urinary tract infections, Kuya Gene's stones in gall bladder and my vertigo on attack... whew, the house was on FIRE!! Dear Lord, please deliver my family from any sickness this year.. but if it is your will that we have to suffer, please be with us that we may be victorious against these odds.

  • steady financial income

I am not asking for riches Lord, just enough to enjoy life. And grant me a sharing heart, teach me to become a cheerful giver! :-)

  • stronger CV Community

this is Your apostolate, make things happen as You plan!.. I am just Your humble servant...

  • boyfriend :-D

it has to be this year, or never na! hehehe demanding ba Lord? :-D .. You know my heart Lord, let me know Your will :-)

  • wisdom and honesty to our goverment officials

need to say more? hmmm this is quite tough Lord, but with Your blessings, You can definitely change our system!

  • more passion in knowing and serving YOU

as the song goes "...take me deeper, deeper in love with you.. Jesus, hold me close to Your embrace.. take me deeper, deeper than I've even been before.. i just wanna love You more and more.. how i long to be deeper in love..."

All these i ask in the sweet and mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

para sayo kaibigan...

salamat...
.....sa mga dasal na inalay mo para sa kagalingan ng aking ina at ni baby kyla
.....sa mga salitang nagbigay ng lakas at nagkabit ng ngiti sa aking mukha
.....sa mga oras na inukol upang ipadama na ako'y hindi nag-iisa
.....sa mga paalalang ang Diyos ay nakikinig at tunay na Dakila!

salamat...
.....dahil kahit mahabang panahon na ang nakaraan
.....kahit milya milya ang layo ng ating kinaroroon
.....ang pagiging magkaibigan ay hindi kinalimutan
.....bagkus ay higit pa itong pinagyayaman

maraming salamat kaibigan, tunay kang maasahan!
kung nangangailangan ng tulong, ako'y iyo ding malalapitan
ako'y nagdarasal na ika'y laging patnubayan
at sa tamang panahon, makita ang tunay na minamahal :)

listening

i thought i'm a good listener until i read this post from CV Discussion Board.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why we don't hear others
If you want to listen so you really hear what others say, make sure you're not a:
Mind reader. You'll hear little or nothing as you think "What is this person really thinking or feeling?"
Rehearser. Your mental tryouts for "Here's what I'll say next" tune out the speaker.
Filterer. Some call this selective listening—hearing only what you want to hear.
Dreamer. Drifting off during a face-to-face conversation can lead to an embarrassing "What did you say?" or "Could you repeat that?"
Identifier. If you refer everything you hear to your experience, you probably didn't really hear what was said.
Comparer. When you get sidetracked assessing the messenger, you're sure to miss the message.
Derailer. Changing the subject too quickly tells others you're not interested in anything they have to say.
Sparrer. You hear what's said but quickly belittle it or discount it. That puts you in the same class as the derailer.
Placater. Agreeing with everything you hear just to be nice or to avoid conflict does not mean you're a good listener.

Indeed listening is an art!
- requires human effort to master
- needs high quality of execution
- a non-scientific branch of learning
- a skill arising from the exercise of intuitive faculties

funny scenes

#1:
me: uwi ka ng masbate?
ad: baka hindi.. bakit?
me: naghahanap ako ng kasama, uwi ako eh..
ad: bakit ka uuwi?
me: kelangan ko maghanap ng makakasama ni mama sa bahay
ad: ha? bakit mag-aasawa ka na??
me: HUWAAAAATTTTTT???

#2:
me asking a tsonggo for a nice, cozy and affordable hotel in baguio.. twin-sharing, good for 2 pax.. he gave me some suggestions, i thanked him and searched the net for rates.. the day after, i burst into laughter when an instant message suddenly popped:
drew: tsong, sino ka-date mo sa baguio? honeymoon ba?
me: hahahaha.. speaking of honeymoon, tuloy na kayo?
drew: do go changing the topic? hehe.. nde nga? ikaw nga aakyat ng baguio? wento naman jan..
me: hahhahaha.. nde ako noh..

#3:
back from lunch, i changed my YM's status to "pasko na sinta ko", hmmm last song syndrome since i heard a man singing that song in the elevator.. few minutes after, instant messages flooded:
"oi sino yan?"
"may boyfriend ka na??"
"yihiiii mainit ang pasko nya"
nyek! isnt that ironic with the messsage of the song?

i know most of you guys are excited to see me inlove.. or to hear an announcement that i am with someone... but hey, arent these reactions too much?? :-P

"what gave you that idea?"
hehe feeling commercial model tuloy ako :-D

ang pangako...

when comforting words from friends are not enough..
when you can do nothing about a situation..
be quiet, be still and hold on..
because it is in calmness that you will hear HIS promises..


Huwag Kang Mangamba
-Bukas Palad-

KORO:
Huwag kang mangamba, 'di ka nag-iisa
Sasamahan kita, saan man magpunta
Ika'y mahalaga sa 'King mga mata
Minamahal kita, minamahal kita

Tinawag kita sa 'yong pangalan
Ikaw ay Akin magpakailanman
Ako ang Panginoon mo at Diyos
Tapagligtas mo at Tagatubos (KORO)

Sa tubig kita'y sasagipin
Sa apoy ililigtas man din
Ako ang Panginoon mo at Diyos
Tapagligtas mo at Tagatubos (KORO)
