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.
