Hell Week?

They always said that we should start the week right...but what if you were doing everything for it to be OK then shit happens?

I woke up early last Monday so that I won't be late for work. However the dude from LTFRB won't let that happen. He stopped my shuttle for a good 30minutes. The old lady in the shuttle was bragging like hell that she worked for the government too blah blah blah. She also said that the driver should just "talk" to the dude and went so far as to say that "bayaran naman lahat yan e." (They can be bought) From her trail of thought, since she works for government and everybody can be bought does that mean that she can also be bought?

The following day was no different, crap happened at home and at work. I was in no mood to work and almost didn't meet my quota.

Wednesday was even more terrible because my workspace was infiltrated; my comfy chair was replaced with a crappy and uncomfortable one and my headset and other wirings for the PC were tampered with.

Thursday, I was losing hope. I was only looking forward to Friday because we can work from home. At least before the day ended, I was given a sort of good news. Thanks everyone!

Friday, a close friend and I bickered on facebook (on a public photo no less) because of some false statements she made about me and my other friends.

I just hope that this Saturday and Sunday would be different and that Monday would allow me to start over. Off to Gateway to plan our trip to HK!

Homosexual Partyl List in the Philippines?

No, I am not gay...but I Refuse to hate

A couple of days ago, I heard of news that the gay and lesbian community is trying to get their voices heard in the congress. Unfortunately they were stopped by the COMELEC because of their supposed "immorality." This context of immorality was based on two BOOKS; the Koran and the Bible. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there are little clause in the Philippine constitution called "THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE? So how can two religious books be the basis of a government body to refuse their filing for candidacy? And if those are the bases of your judgment, then most of our politicians are not allowed to take part in the elections. Junk Bong Revilla's COC and of course, Erap's petition too. It is no secret that those two politicians have mistresses and have children by them too. I believe that the BIBLE is against that, right?

Another reason they posed was that the gay and lesbian community are not part of the minority. Meaning what? I really do not understand that reasoning. In a debate that I watched, the opposition said that if they were allowed to file for candidacy, then why not allow prostitutes create a party list of their own? DUH! PROSTITUTION IS ILLEGAL therefore practitioners of this illegal act are not allowed to be represented in Congress

This is one of the reasons why I would like for us to have some changes in the constitution. It is so full of loopholes that when we studied it back in college, it made me reconsider my career path.

Love of Siam

It's already 1AM and I still have work tomorrow, but I just have to blog about this film! I was planning to watch it tomorrow, after work, but I just couldn't help myself. The review that Kring gave made me want to watch it ASAP.

BEWARE this is a gay film. Well, it's not's far from it. However the story is about two young men who find love in a very unconventional form. If you watch this film, you will find out why so many women watch shounen ai---not because if the hot guys making out with each other, but because somewhere in our hearts, we are yearning for the same level of love and passion from our partners.

Oh well, I guess you will never understand what I'm rambling about if you don't watch the film. For your sake, I implore you to watch this. AND MAKE SURE TO WATCH THE ENDING! Damn that made me cry...T-T

Road Distraction?

Bring back papa Piolo's Abs ads!

As my family and I were passing by Libis, my sister suddenly sighed and said, "Bakit kasi kailangan tanggaling ung Abs ni Papa Piolo? ang lungkot tuloy ng Libis." (Why did they have to remove Piolo's abs? Libis is lonely.)
Apparently, this was removed due to vehicular accidents. They claim that motorists were distracted because of his stunning physique. I hope that this is not true,but if it were true it will be hilarious! Imagine, multiple car damages caused because a fe(male) driver was drooling over Piolo Pascual's chiseled abs...brilliant!

Back to Basics: What We Should've Never Forgotten

A friend of mine sent this e-mail to me and I just wanted to share it. The excerpt was from "ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN" by Robert Fulghum.

All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but there in the sand pile at school.
These are the things I learned:

* Share everything.
* Play fair.
* Don't hit people.
* Put things back where you found them.
* Clean up your own mess.
* Don't take things that aren't yours.
* Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
* Wash your hands before you eat.
* Flush.
* Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
* Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
* Take a nap every afternoon.
* When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together.
* Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
* Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
* And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.

Everything you need to know is in there somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation. Ecology and politics and equality and sane living.

Take any one of those items and extrapolate it into sophisticated adult terms and apply it to your family life or your work or government or your world and it holds true and clear and firm. Think what a better world it would be if we all - the whole world - had cookies and milk at about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap. Or if all governments had as a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess.

And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out in the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.
It reminded me of the basic rules we should live by. Let's face it, everything we know now about morality and whatnot was taught to us by our kindergarten teacher--it just got more complicated as we got older. This just goes to show that age doesn't necessarily make everything better, sometimes it just makes everything confusing.

YouTube Find: Crazy Candy

So while surfing around the internet, I found myself stuck in the wormhole that is youtube...again. I don't know why, but I suddenly saw this very creepy commercial of gummy bears. It is no ordinary gummy bear is a 5lbs giant with a week's work of calorie intake (12,600cal).

Don't believe me? Watch this...
