I have been into Magayon Festival night-out spot at Peñaranda Park, Legazpi City twice when Epoy, a dear friend of mine, came home to visit Legazpi for some personal matters. I missed him dearly that he was able to convince me to join him and his other pals. On any ordinary days, one wouldn't be successful enough to try convincing me to go out, especially on a night-out. But since, it has been several months since I last saw him, we had two nights in a week to catch up with each other's stories.
Right now, they were asking me to join them. But I just don't have it... Going out for a drink or two is no longer my way of taking fun. I would rather spend the few hours having a good night's sleep. I would rather watch DVD movie with Yad, or just fiddle around with my PC at home. Fun for me now is doing things that make me grow up more, and not to get my sobriety level up and feel wasted in the morning thereafter.
So, guys! Just have fun! I know you'd all have it even without me. Just take those pictures and lemme see them next time... :-)
*sigh* I really gotta help myself up; but as usual, am a failure. Am a lazy, little creature trying to look busy but never accomplishes anything right on time... It sucks!

Tomorrow, April 27, 2008, is Dexter Baldon's 30th birthday (hehhehe!peace, dex!).
But this afternoon, we feasted on the yummy foods that he provided on the table for all the employees here in MBSTEK-Legazpi to enjoy and celebrate his natal day. As expected, foods are palatable: pancit, fried chicken, and chicken sandwich, and chocolate + custard cakes (courtesy of MBSTEK-Legazpi family). Yum, yum! His dad cooked those for him. He always does. Ever since I was employed here, I always get to enjoy his culinary expertise whenever it is our Sup's birthday.
And yeah, you guessed it right! I'm so full now and I need to thank Dex for the snacks. Thanks, Dex! At the same time, I want to wish you long life, more happiness, and more contentment in life! I hope you'd always be the same Dex-cum-supervisor-cum-friend for all of us here. Of course, I wouldn't end this post without wishing you best luck for your LOVE LIFE! (Hello, Catheter!:-D)
Here's a toast to your lovelife and career!

Really now, the advanced world of the internet era has given us immeasurable amounts of conveniences. But in every good thing that we have, there's another to pay price with, right? But the online world makes us pay hell more than what we need. The victim of this latest prank (or would you really call it merely a "prank," when there are some people who are, although unintentionally, laughing at you because you are in a pretty much embarrassing condition?), is even sleeping and hoping to get treated at the time the whole "shooting" time transpired. That's one sick, offensive joke you got there, buddy! And, mind you, no one needs this kind of joke at all!The fact that this story is a very classic example where breaching of the policy regarding confidentiality between a medical practitioner/institution/hospital and patients happens makes it even worse!
So, what else do we get to expect from Youtube, or other video, and even photo sites? Tell me now, is there more sickening scandal you know of than this video of this person having an awkward anal operation and being viewed by the whole world? It's really a sick world we have here! In this highly-advanced century, you'll never know what's in store for you, as far as online world is concerned. But, I should hope now that this should serve as a lesson to everyone out there! Not only for the individuals but for those practicing professionals and insitutions.

When I visited the site of Lakshmi the Rattler, I can’t help but get envious that she had a nice layout, a far nicer site layout than mine. It’s so obvious that the owner is a woman. With the white background sprinkled with butterfly and wild flowerette images, plus the summery and pastel colors used on the rest of the details, there’s no denying it. And just judging at these details, it suggests that she is a happy, bubbly, and contented woman at that!
Another thing that got into my mind is that we had something in common here, white background. But while my blog white layout is yet to meet some re-arranging needs, hers was a very neat and organized one. I remember a comment made on my blog by a certain blogger, he said that only few bloggers can make a neat and organized blog site. But well, now? I am pretty sure that he won’t say the same thing if he found out how much nicer Lakshmi the Rattler blog is. I love the manner in which she arranged the details because it made the site so easy to browse, easy to skim, and so refreshing to the eyes. Just the thought of it makes me wanna go to the beach, strip off my clothes, and then plunge into the warm water...lol! (It’s summer season here in the
I knew lots of women blogger, and in fact most of them are my friends. But it’s either that their site was laid in black, gothic background or softer yet with darker colors, but never in white. So, chancing upon this blog of Lakshmi is a welcoming relief and I’m quite sure that I will come back for more updates of this site.
Here's the drawing illusion:
Here are the instructions:
1) Relax and focus on the 4 small dots at the center of the picture. Do this for about 30-40 seconds.
2) Then, allow your eyes to stare at a wall near you ( any smooth, single coloured surface)
3) You will see a circle of light and an image developing.
4) Blink your eyes a couple of times and you will see a figure emerging...
5) What do you see? Who do you see?
By the way, I got it from a fellow blogger, called wats. I asked permission from her if I could re-post it so my readers could also experience it. Click here to visit her site.

So, because this website is telling that it got these things, I continued browsing it. But yet again, I got my time hooked by the first post that I chanced upon, which is about Nesox Email Marketer.

The management software is designed for list building, sending and tracking at your very own personal computer or laptop, and email campaigns creating. With these tools, this application is perfectly designed to help online businesses have a better relationship with their readers, visitors, clients, and customers.

It is a good thing that there are various media tools all catered to local current events and issues that they can use such as newspapers, magazines, and television channels so they are always updated about what has been happening in the Philippines even when they are miles away. In addition, there are also online versions of these tools and apparently considered as the current most convenient and easiest way to remain connected with the Filipino homeland.
For even greater news, there is this site called, Pinoy United, an online Filipino Magazine which Filipinos working and living abroad can become a member by signing-up absolutely free of charge. It is like a social networking site which aims to connect all Filipinos worldwide, whether you are from the Middle East, Australia, Asia, Africa, or from USA, South America, Canada and Europe or UK. This is a great website that you bet I am going to disseminate to all my relatives and loved ones living and working abroad so they can sign-up with it and continue getting in contact with us.

She was called Lali and being worshipped by the local villagers believing her to be the reincarnation of a certain Hindu Goddess.
The parents said that their daughter is doing well, drinking with from her two mouths, opening and shutting all four of eyes at one time. According to the doctor, baby Lali is inflicted with an extremely rare condition called, craniofacial duplication.

But one thing that makes this piece of paper hold a very special part in my heart is it came from my Yaddy, my 10-year old son. We were watching our, or rather his favorite movie of the month, "Charlie and The Chocolate Factory," one fine weekend morning when suddenly he entered the room he shares with his Tito Jay, my youngest brother.
Moments after, he came out and handed me the paper. I thought it's just one of his paper wastes he is about to discard. Then he took it back, and I shrugged the item off. He went inside the room once again. Out he came, then handed me back the cut-out paper. He boasted off the "paper work art" he made and I offered him compliments for the efforts he did and I said it was beautiful. I thought it was just that.
But, apparently, he wasn't finished...
He pointed the letters he inked on the paper. As you can see in the picture, it says "Thank You." I asked him if it was for me. He said yes. Asked him again what was it for. He answered, "nothing." Said he just wanted to give me that.
Awww... my heart melted as soon as I realized that he did that for me. He wanted to thank me for something that I don't even know what was that thing. It made me consider for a moment, perhaps I've done him something good to make him happy?
Isn't that sweet? I really love you, My Yaddy! I hope you grow up into a fine man someday, just like how a fine young man that you are today. :-)
I'm sleepy and want to sleep like the cat above yet I need to be up and finish my tasks before the day ends... Good thing, I got here in PC screen a YM window that an officemate, currently based at our Manila branch, sent just this morning:
"Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically. Romans 12:11 (NLT)"
Sure helps to remind me it is a nonsense and a sin being lazy.
Aileen Alcomendas makes sure she sends us our daily dose of spiritual vitamins just before work starts. I need bible verses like this one and Ai has always been so forward and patient as taking a little of her time everyday just so we are able to read passages even without visiting our bibles. It helps me in a lot other ways, so thank you Ai for your little yet significant doing. :-)

But I needed some great solutions to make the online store a convenient and friendly place for buyers to deal with.

I have been so stupid and careless in my early twenties as to not care about the precious years and months that all went by wasted and me busted up. Too late to realize these things, but I could only do so much at this time as to mend up for the wasted years. I need badly to get off the current world that I feel is closing in on me - in a fashion that is intoxicating and suffocating already. I need so badly to fly from this place to another land where I would have a new personality, a new life, and a new future. I need to start a new dimension of my personality. I want to get a new perspective in life and not keep this less meaningful existence.
Until I get my diploma, I am stuck to this so-called shallow world I belong to...
