Is there such a word as day-off? ‘Coz I haven’t felt it! Damn.

Yesterday, which is so-called “rest day”, was so so. We held an event for our beloved Telco dealers. We were at Power Plant Mall to watch the private screening of Transformers: The Revenge of The Fallen at Cinema 4. The day before it was a pain in ass as most of my dealers are asking for additional tickets to invite their whole kinsfolk. But 30 minutes before the film started was more annoying. We were informed that quarter of the dealers canceled their commitments and we were asked if we could invite more of our dealers or drag even friends just to fill up the cinema. So ironic. Anyways, we assisted the clients for the tickets and directed them to a long line for popcorn and iced tea (consolations). All of my clients went over…so…thank you. =)

Thought I couldn’t start the movie but Faye, my assistant, and I hastily stormed to the door opening of the cinema through a dark path leading us to the big screen. Lucky enough, the movie is getting started. Hehe.

I love Transformers as I’m a fan of it but I kinda liked the first movie than what we’ve seen yesterday. The story is shallow and out of the question to what a mind can accomplish. Actions are not detailed. When they transformed, you can see mechanical parts of the machine twisting and evolving into a robot. Anyways, I love Prime and Bee. They’re cute.

After the film, Faye, Loeula and I sneakingly left the group and bound home. Hehe.

Goodbye Jacko

The world is mourning for the death of the legendary "King of Pop", Michael Joseph Jackson. MJ died at the age of 50 on June 25, 2009 at 2:26PM.

I was in shock when I received a message from a friend that my idol Michael Jackson died. I thought it was a prank message. So I hurriedly turn on the TV and scout for any news that would answer my doubt. I stopped at Net 25 and my eyes were riveted on TV screen and all ears on it. It was confirmed that my great idol Michael Jackson died last Thursday at Los Angeles.

Believe it. I bought all the albums of him. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation known for his signature dance moves like moonwalk and high-pitched singing. I can still remember when I first watched his concert from a VHS tape my Daddy brought home when he came back in Philippines from work abroad, I was shouting and screaming in excitement. I was 8 years old that time. A friend of my brother gave me a magazine that covers him. I cut off all his pictures and posted it on the walls surrounding my entire room. Funny but I was totally in love with him up-to my college days. He went here in the Philippines for his world-tour last 1995. I can still remember when my cousin and I plan to sell our VHS player just to watch his concert. Haha. I was so crazy in love with him that time. I promised to myself that if he do another concert here in the Philippines, I won’t miss that chance to watch him.

I was preparing for his comeback concert but all was ended due to this shockingly tragedy of his life.

Goodbye Jacko… you will always be remembered.

Jacob's Ladder

While watching the long time running TV program “Maalaala Mo Kaya” last night, a deep thinking crossed my mind. Why am I here on earth? What’s my real purpose? I just realized, I’ve been working hard and earning much for nothing. All for my self-interests, to secure my family and my future. A meaningless life.

The movie was about a doctor who spent all his life to help the needy. His wife has been demanding him material things as his the only doctor who works with nothing. Today, you cannot see any doctor without a car, all our secured. Surrounded with material things and all the comfort in life. But this man is different. He went to suburban areas to conduct medical mission. To teach proper hygiene to slum. To cure the ill. To provide medicine to sick. He found true happiness with these people.

The average span of time human lives nowadays is 60. I’m almost half of it and pity to say I accomplished nothing. I’m planning of securing a house and a car next year when I settle down but I can’t still feel the bliss. Is it all about me?

I can do it by myself but doing it in a group is more significant. Now I’m dragging my teammates to join me in one concrete mission: share the blessings and reach out for the poor.

Shet, is it really me who’s writing and planning all of these? Where’s the evil Eya? Wow, there’s still a little goodness left here in me.

Anyways, I want some changes in my life and I want it to materialize. Not tomorrow or the next day but NOW.

No Pressure, No worries…Just lovin’ it.

Sunday…a day for rest, for family and most importantly for God.

I woke up this morning trying to persuade my Mom to go to church as it’s the first Sunday of the month. I won so we got up from bed and enthusiastically prepared ourselves for the mass. A felicitous ceremony ended. First time of the year I heard the mass with my family, not with my boyfriend. He was on service at their church before the dawn so he wasn’t able to come. My Mom and I went to the market to buy food for lunch. Told my Mom that I hate going to market mostly Sunday. Just hate the crowd and the messy stuffs give pain to my eyes. She scowled at me and told me that I need to learn everything in life as soon I will have my own family. I just kept silent. She’s right.

I love my daily routine. No pressure, no worries…just lovin’ it. =) It’s more than a week we haven’t had work in our office as the system was shut down for renovation. And I love my new office…here at home. Hehe. I gathered information through our outlook webmail access and sell. Hee. I love the freedom. Wahaha. No need to wake up 5:30AM for work. I can eat anytime. I can even watch movie and go to salon. Haha. Though my prepaid internet is too expensive and quite slow. I spend 100 pesos a day to keep online and on track. Anyway, it doesn’t matter. I need to sell and sell to hit my target for this month. Need to earn more. Last Saturday the boyfriend came by. We chose to watch DVD at home rather than spend money in the movie house. We need to save more in preparation for the next year’s big change in our lives. And I’m excited for that. =)

I heard the news last week that my lababol cousin was 7 weeks pregnant. I was so happy for her for it was her big dream and god I envy her! I and her sister are supposed to be the first to settle down as we’re older than her. Hmp. Del, ang daya mo! Bleh!

Yeee! We still have no office tomorrow. Same setup as our manager disseminated to us. He just texted me now. Yahoo! I’ll go on gym with the boyfriend and his cousin tomorrow. Haha!

So that’s it. Hope to write more here. =)

Nanay's Day

Before start bitching again, Happy Mom’s day to all mothers out there.

Even my Mom is not my idol as I always heard and saw on TV ads for the past days, I greeted her through text for the special day only offered to mothers in the world. I also greeted my boyfriend’s mom. We went out to treat my Mom and my Tita who have angst to her family. I feel sorry for her as she should be treated special today by her family but what happened was opposite of what she’s expecting. Anyways, she enjoyed our company.

I regale them to Max’s restaurant at SM Karuhatan. The restaurant was full. What do we expect? Ang dating nilalangaw na resto ngayon pinipilihan. We need to wait for two groups to finish before we can be seated. After 30 minutes of waiting, we finally had our ass’s plowed on their comfy chairs. I already had my order before we get seated but we still need to wait for a couple of minutes to fill our agonizing stomachs.

Food were great. I ordered for a half-table of their Menu letter C which includes kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, one whole fried chicken, dinaeng na bangus, lechon kawali and dessert. Yay. We enjoyed the food but my card cried after the glorious meal. Huhu. Okay lang. Minsan lang naman. Hehe.

I was chatting to a friend yesterday and our topic was her life insurance. She needs to remit 33 grand annually to that insurance in ten consecutive years to be able to get 1 Million when she died at any cause. Where’s the excitement there when you will no longer enjoy what you planted. I’m really not into any insurance, especially life insurance. You’re already preparing something for someone when you died. And most of the cases, when that someone knew it, they would pray for your death. Bwahaha.

When I was about to go home to catch for my favorite TV show, my colleagues invited me to come with them to meet someone. They persuaded me for a free food. Hehe. As I’ve heard they will meet an agent from a prestige insurance company. Fuck! I was just talking to a friend and discouraging her to that insurance and now I will dine to an insurance agent who will do her best to convince me to get one. WTF. I just found myself entering to Burgoo, meeting the lady, asking questions and lately signing the contract. Haha. How stupid isn’t it?

Life is so ironic. Humorously mocking as what you expected is different from what actually is. Pfft.

I prayed for this job and I got it. I wished to belong to this company and I am now working in it. Eight months passed, I struggled to survive and when I won the glory I just felt chill of passion. I don’t feel like working in it any longer and I want to move out as soon as possible. Isn’t it ironic? You’re dying for something and when you get that something, you would just lose the taste of it.

Life is making fun of us. Everyday of our living we encounter irony.

You wake up early to get to work early and then you will just find yourself, stuck in the middle of a traffic jam. You will go to church to pray but suddenly your eyes are sneaking to the woman’s bare long legs. You won a car in a lottery but you don’t know how to drive. You’re on a diet when a friend treats you in a buffet restaurant. A rain on your date. An important message to reply when you ran out of load. A great dream that you regret to have.

Things like that. Funny isn’t it? Just learn how to deal with it. J

Axis Summer Outing 2008

It was my first time to join the Axis’ Summer Outing. I really wouldn’t want to as I felt belittled by the crowd of this huge company. I signed the waiver under my own free will not to join the trip. Apparently, the HRA sent a memorandum that all employees failed to file a leave on that day will be considered AWOL and won’t get paid even on holiday as per labor code. I still don’t get the benefit of having a leave with pay. I will be entitled of that privilege after a year of service in the company. So, I didn’t have the choice but to catch on the trip. Two days without pay is a big lost for me.

April 5, 2008 4:45AM. I and the boyfriend hailed a cab at the corner of their street. Ampy called with a loud voice rushing us. If I could just let this cab fly to get there on time, I would.

5:15AM. Four buses are halted in the corner of North Road. We walked over the place searching for our designated bus. There it was at the last row. I kissed and waved goodbye to Alben as I boarded the bus. The dawn is breaking when we left Cubao. I didn’t have the vim and vigor to socialize so I took out my iPod, put the earphones and sleep. I can still hear Ampy’s loud voice even the volume of my iPod’s in its maximum level. Nobody can beat Ampy when she talks. Pft. We stopped over in Pampanga, distributed our breakfast from the most selling fast-food chain in our country with hotdog, scrambled egg and rice. As Ampy desired, it would be more enjoyable if served in sunny side up and red hotdog. Choosy. Anyway, we didn’t finish it. She kept hers and shared with my mine.

We can feel the heat as we were driving through the serene, humble and pleasing sceneries of Bataan. It’s exactly 9AM when we reached the resort. A pool and beach resort. A huge streamer of Axis Global welcomed us. After scanning the whole place, we donned our swim suits and the whole crew poses beside the pool area for company picture taking. The program proper started. Karaoke contest, Mr. and Ms. Bodyshot then we went to the beach area for the games, Tug-O-War and Obstacle. We laughed out loud watching the players sinking in the sand, eating dusts, trampling on and demolishing the obstacles when they pass through. Haha. It was so much fun.

After the games, we went back to the pool area for lunch. They kept on pushing me to sing but they didn’t succeed. Hello! I won’t dishonor myself in front of 200 people. After filling up our empty stomachs we wandered around the beach area and enjoy our free time to do whatever we want. The water is clear and chilling. We played volleyball in the water. SSG vs Telco Sales. Haha. Most of our players are giants so the SSG frightened us that they will not encode our orders if they lose. Haha. Gen walked to the end of the beach, near the cave. We followed her and took pictures over there. They covered me with sand and molded tits and penis over me. The sand is heavy. I felt pain on my chest. Thinking crossed my mind, “It’s hard and horrific to be buried alive.” Sir Norman shared his rented kayat after getting tired of paddling. Hehe. I yanked it and they push me over to get into the boat. Ma’am Mean and Lynette is with me. We row and row and tired ourselves. Argh. We went to the shore and start tripping with our guys. The ladies covered the guys with sand and molded tits and penis again. Hehe. Ma’am Lynette and I posed in seductive look as they took pictures of us.

When we felt our skin is getting darker and painful from the heat of the sun, we gathered together and went to shower room. Though it was not actually a room since it is open. People are passing us by. Argh

We ate snack and bounded to our designated terminals to go back home.

New Year, New Plans, New Targets

I’m here in our house, alone. My Mom, sis and her girlfriend went to my brother’s house in celebration of leap of year. I preferred not to come as I have my period and fuckin’ cramps that’s making me feel immobile and unsociable at the moment. After moving out from my boarding house at San Andres, I’ve never been this serene. This kind of moment, facing to my laptop, blogging my whims.

After working for months to my new second home, I can say that I finally adjusted to this kind of job. Dealing with different kinds of people. Testing your patience. Working in an environment where you need to wear a mask. Not just one, but a variety of it. In this career, you will find yourself awarded, appraised and deceived. In time, you will learn how to play the game and go along with these strangers. No friendship to treasure. No room for procrastination. You need to be active all the time. Smart and warm when talking to clients. Tough, wise and sassy when coordinating to bitches of that fucking support group. The only perks in working here are the benefits that this multi-million company will give you and SECURITY in life that this robust company will provide you.

Anyways, I enjoy working here because I never felt this busy before and I love dealing with clients.
