Ain't ok...

Hubby and I finally talked but still I couldn’t tell if we’re okay. He have some issues about me being too selosa, too onion-skinned and this I can’t accept --- me staring at a guy in the church last Sunday *gasp*. It was unimaginable and I just couldn’t contain my rage. Of course I did not stare at a certain guy--- there were a lot of people then and I was looking randomly at a bunch of them. I couldn’t even remember the guy he was referring to.

But at least we’re talking now. But of course, the issues are still to be resolved. I don’t know but something’s not right. I’m really scared if we continue to have these little fights. It’s something that I’m not really used to and I’m not good in this battle. I get too emotional and I easily shed tears.

Anyway, life won’t be easy and we’ll be faced with a lot of tempest in this marriage.

I just hope and pray we’ll survive all these trials that we are facing right now and those that are yet to come. *sigh*

I wanna make you smile whenever you're sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
All I wanna do is grow old with you

I'll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

I'll miss you
Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold

Need you
Feed you
Even let ya hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed if you've had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you

I’m in a middle of a cold war with my hubby. It started over the weekend and until this morning; we’re not talking to each other. Well, it’s just the usual stuff --- my fault again. Blame it on my pea-headedness and stupid jealousy. We still share the same bed facing the opposite sides hehehe.

I got a text from my friend Alvie which says “In life, God doesn’t give you the people you want. Instead, he gives you the people you need --- to teach you, to hurt you, to love you and to make you the way you should be”.

It’s so timely. I was tempted to forward the message to my husband but I’d rather not coz he might get mad all the more. He’s not into mushy stuff you know.

So, right now, I just want to give him the space he deserves. Maybe that’s what he really needs at this moment. I’m not in the mood for fighting though. I have a lot of things in my mind that I don’t want to dwell on this petty fight. Tonight, I’m planning to sleep in his office or in the maid’s room maybe. But of course, I want this cold war to just die the natural death. Soon!!!


I had an interview with Honda Cebu for HR Officer position. It's an initial interview with the HR Manager. I'm just exploring the possibilities of going back to my passion - Human Resources. I'm crossing my fingers though unsure of what to expect in that industry. Perhaps, I just grew tired of just "being the frontdesk". I have skills in human resources that I want to develop so help me God.

If you prick us, do we not bleed?
if you tickle us, do we not laugh?
if you poison us, do we not die?
and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
-- William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice.

I was tempted to write about my angst against 2 of our co-tenants at Mango Square who have been making our lives @ Beachroots very difficult. But I guess, being angry and writing about that would just make things complicated. The two events that happened over the weekend weren’t premeditated. An outburst of emotions is an understatement, maybe it was just our patience being pushed to the limit. We want to clarify that we, at Beach Roots aren’t war freaks and that we are nonviolent people who just want to run our business the right way. But then, the damage has been done and the best thing to do is to forget what happened and move on. It would be a vicious cycle if we keep on throwing sh*t at each other --- we would just be piling up the problems all the more. All we wanted is a healthy competition in this business as we are all adults here. We want to put an end to all the negative insinuations, intimidation, backstabbing, and badmouthing these tenants have been doing. This is a free enterprise and our customers have the freedom to choose which bar suit their taste and lifestyle. Just for the record, 80% of our customers are our friends, officemates and relatives.

So much has been done, a lot has been said and with that, we Rooters, rest our case.

A good friend of mine got married last February 25. And due to circumstances beyond my control, I wasn't able to attend her wedding. First and foremost, the wedding was held in Davao City thus I still have to travel from Cebu and leave some priorities behind. None of us (Beth, Alvie, Cecil and me), her closest friends in College made it to her wedding. I know it's a lame excuse and I hope Cathy can find in her heart the grace to forgive me for not being able to share with her this very memorable milestone in her life. She was my maid of honor during my wedding and just seeing her wedding pics in friendster makes me guilty all the more. I know my sorry isn't enough and I have to make it up to her.

I'm sorry Cath... if there's way I could make it up to you, I will, really. CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU AND TO YOUR HUSBAND (I know I haven't really met him up close and personal)...I just wish you all the BEST in your marriage and family life.

Welcome to the club!



To the one who understood her task and her purpose.
To the one who looked at the road ahead, and understood that it was a difficult journey.

To the one who did not make light of those difficulties,
but, on the contrary, made them manifest and visible.

To the one who makes the lonely feel they are not alone,
who satisfies those who hunger and thirst for justice, who makes the oppressor feel as bad as the oppressed.

To the one who always keeps her door open,
her ears listening, her hands working, her feet walking.

To the one who embodies the verses of another Persian poet,
Hafez, when he says: Not even seven thousand years of joy are worth seven days of sadness.

To the one who is here tonight, may she be one with all of us,
may her example multiply, may she still have difficult days ahead,
so that she can do whatever she needs to do,
so that the next generations will not have to strive
for what has already been accomplished.

And may she walk slowly,
because her peace is the peace of change,
and chage, real change, always takes time.

Wet n’ Wild Summer Party @ Tambuli

It was supposed to be an office party by the beach. But I tagged along my daughter so it turned out to be bonding moments with my daughter and some close friends in the office. We never get to participate in the program and some activities during the event.

I’ve always loved the WATER and the SUN so we just soaked ourselves in the water and get those golden tans. It was also a photo session…Geezzz, we took about 200 pics of ourselves.

Check out below selected pics:

Call Center Agent Y'All

Half of my shift (between 4:00 - 8:00 PM Local time) is spent on taking calls for some of our authors who will be calling on ungodly hours which is early dawn US time. Part of the company's financial optimization goals is to get rid of the mid-shift for call center department since there's less calls coming in during that time. Anyway, it's been a week now since I started and makes me want to resign even more. There is this one author from Michigan who keeps on calling and she's really weird. I don't know but I think I'm gonna quit my job any minute from now. My nose is bleeding if I keep on talking in English....waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh

Missing my girls...

I haven't been out --- I guess I'm tired of partying except of course dropping by at our bar for a bottle of beer and talk to our staff. I haven't been out maybe because my laag buddies - Joni, Et and Kathy are nowhere to be found. I miss them so much and I miss the things we used to do --- hanging out at Da Vinci's pizza and just talking till our throats hurt. We used to exchange text messages and call each before but lately, there's not much to talk about I guess and text messages never came. Things change and I feel so away from them.

I wish I could hang out with them again --- catch up on each other's lives and relive the memories.

Miss you girls...hope to bond with you again for old time sake, will yah!?
