5:55PM - sickiness

i got sick yesterday... hay. nabigla ata yung katawan ko for baking for two straight days. bigla akong nagka-fever. 38.8 lang nman. darn. i think i slept the whole day yesterday sa sobrang sakit ng ulo ko. aaaarrrrggggghhhh. i hate being sick. masakit ba magpatanggal ng tonsils? i'm really considering having them removed kasi 95% of my fevers are caused by tonsilitis. darn tonsils.

atleast i was feeling better na today. still a bit feverish but manageable na, unlike yesterday. i went to la salle kanina. grabe, i missed that. comfort zone ba-ga. i met with sir abad about my business ideas. i really needed a lot of mentoring and im glad he had the time to help me out. thanks sir. i wish things will turn out for the best.

hoy kaka! pasaway ka tlga kanina! promise. hehe. magtatanong ka kung asan kame, tapos di ka nman pala susunod. pasaway. haha. o nga pla, namamayat ka tlga. SOBRA.

although i got sick, may maganda pa ring nangyari. a lot of people liked my cookies... kaya most probably i would be baking more over the weekend. ang dami na kasing orders eh. hehe. that is, if magaling na ko. haha.

thanks sa lahat baby! *mwah*

5:54PM - greetings part two

HAPPY 1 YEAR AND 5 MONTHS BABY!! I love you soooooo much! *mwah*

"The Closer I Get To You"
(Beyonce Knowles feat. Luther Vandross)

The closer I get to you
The more you make me see
By giving me all you've got
Your love has captured me
Over and over again
I try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel
Lying here next to you
Time just seems to fly
Needing you more and more
Let's give love a try
Sweeter and sweeter love grows
And heaven's there for those
Who fool the tricks of time
With hearts in love will find
True love
In a special way
The closer I get to you
The more you make me see
By giving me what you've got
Your love has captured me
Over and over again
I try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew this was real (got to be real)
The way you make me feel (you know)
My baby, my baby, my baby, my love
Come a little closer so we can see into the eyes of love
Just a little a closer let me speak to you
I wanna tell you something
Here I am-- I just want you to come closer
Come a little closer let me whisper in your ear
‘Cause I wanna tell you something
Move a little a little closer we can say for real
The way we feel about each other’s lovin’…

Current mood: excited

9:31AM - finally

my mom and i had a serious conversation yesterday... sa email nga lang. =)

finaly, it's all coming together. our business that is. i know it would still take a while to set it up and that's based from experience.. of almost a year of preparing the business plan alone.

but then, i think i'm moving towards something i really want to do. i know its going to a very long and tedious process, but i think we will be able to pull through. that's why i'm starting already, trying to make a detailed action plan of the things needed to be done.

thanks kuya jess. somehow, i am no longer in the state of confusion, where i was before.

8:14AM - dessertcomesfirst.blogspot.com

hey guys!! just wanna share with you this blogspot my sister told me about. if you love desserts, like i do, you will definitely love this site. this site is runned by lori baltazar and i have to thank her for such wonderful event.


my sister was able to get reservations (for my mom and I) to the Tea Party yesterday, where they featured 7 known bakers and of course their fabulous and outstanding desserts!! Thanks to my sister who was able to get reservations, to think that only 60pax were allowed. The entrance fee is P500 per person, it was all damn worth it.

we all had two-plate fulls of desserts... desserts and more desserts. i mean from triple hazelnut chocolate mousse... to vevlvety symphony... to mango and lemon tortes... to cheescakes... strawberry shortcakes... girhadelli chocolate chip cookies.. to carrot cakes... vanilla bean's turtle cake... banana cream pie... and the list goes on.

we all got sugar high afterwards of course. haha. we even took home more desserts!

even better, before the show ended.. there was a raffle where some bakers gave out whole cakess and very interesting photographs of food (lori baltazar shot it) which was all soooo divine. and guess what?!?!? my mom and i EACH WON the raffle!! haha! we won a 12-inch mango torte and the triple hazelnut mousse. grabe, talk about being lucky tlga!

For P1000, we were able to eat two-plate fulls of desserts, with additional takehome treats, plus one box of tripe hazelnut mousse and one huge box of mango torte. bawing-bawi tlga. kaya last night, we started giving away the desserts coz we can't fit it inside our freezer.

i hope you will all enjoy the blogspot! =)

5:08PM - spending time with myself

i spent the whole day by myself. haha. surpisingly, i had fun. hehe.

i went to honda alabang, to have my car checked. i left the car there and walked all the way to madrigal business park for my dental check-up. after going to the dentist, i walked again, going to mcdo alabang-zapote nman. haha, exercise tlga.

after eating hotcake for breakfast, i went to town center na muna since after 3 hours ko pa pwede makuha yung car. ikot-ikot. shopping ng konti. tapos nakita ko na 12nn yung first showing ng memoirs of a geisha. at hindi ko pa yun napapanuod.

kaya ayan, i ended up watching the movie by myself. haha. funny tlga kasi sa sobrang excited ko manuod, 1130am pa lang pumasok na ko ng movie house only to find out na ako pa lang yung tao sa loob. scary. hehe. i think 6 or 7 lang kaming nanuod nung first showing. atleast may kasama ako sa loob ng movie theater. hehe.

after watching the movie, it was time to go back na to honda to get my car. at dahil mainit na at medyo malayo para sa isang lakaran, nagjeep na lang ako. yipee!!! can you believe??? nakapag-jeep ako mag-isa. haha. wala lang. achievement. it's been a while na kasi. at ngayon ko lang na-realize na ang mahal na pla ng pamasahe. haha. the last time i remember na nagjeep ako magisa (2 kms. lang nman yun haha), P2.50 pa yung pamasahe.

good day. i think i was able to do a lot of things in my to-do list.

Current mood: chillin'

7:09PM - back to memory lane

finally, after so many years of deprived childhood, i finally have a family computer. haha. paul and i bought one yesterday.

i know it sounds awfully weird that we bought a family computer instead of a PS2 or XBOX, pero yun tlga yung gusto ko. we never had a gameboy, a family computer or PS. Basta any electronic game sh*t. NEVER. ayaw kasi ng mom ko coz it's a total distraction daw sa studies.

and now that i'm no longer studying, pwede na! haha. i just wanted to play Super Mario. that's all. i was never good at it kasi nung bata ako. dahil nga wala kaming family computer. napag-iwanan tlga ako. haha, kaya ayan, grabing the opportunity.

i spent my whole afternoon today playing tyhe family computer tuloy. yun nga lang, wala pa ring Super Mario. bibili pa kame ng "bala". haha. merong built-in games na kasama pero "mario kuno" lang, kasi pikachu yung character. grabe, nakakatawa tlga. haha. piracy sobra. same lahat, expect yung characters. nilaro ko na lang yung bomberman na favorite ko at natapos ko na yung 50 stages. haha.

binigay rin pala sakin ng baby ko yung gameboy niya. hehe, kasi may mario dun. thanks sa gameboy baby! pati sa pagsama bumili ng family comp.


on other things, i received a call from sara lee! =) they want me to go to their office on tues. kaya ayun, i'll try to see what they have to offer. sayang yung opportunity eh.

8:50AM - a good way to start march

he surprised me last night when he went to our house around 9pm since we hardly talked the whole day (hoy kaka! tama bang ikuwento sa kanya yung reply ko sa text mo? hehe). thanks baby. i'm really glad you came, kahit 10mins lang yun.

my first day of doing nothing again. but it's all good. we're going to mass later. grabe, ash wednesday na pala.

summer is really here. beach naman tayo. hindi kasi ako mkkasama sa march 11-12 na la union trip. waaaahhhh.

Current mood: excited umalis

6:30PM - last day ko na...

gosh, my last day at DTI-CITEM is almost over. hay, nakakasad din pala. My officemates made a despedida party for me. Everyone contributed. Thanks to everyone!!! Special thanks to my boss, Rhea, for the chocolate cake and to Noni for the double dutch ice cream. Thanks also to Tricia for the earrings! and Thanks to Gail for the mario all stars! and thanks sa lahat who celebrated my despidida with me.

grabe, i didn't know na nakakalungkot pala umalis. especially when my officemates started giving me their goodbye hugs and kisses. naiyak ba nman ako. unexpected sobra. but i guess ngayon ko lang narealize that they have all touched me and i enjoyed their company, kahit na sobrang hirap ng work.

i will surely miss all of them. especially during the height of manila F.A.M.E. international, na kahit sobrang hectic na kame and we hardly go home, we can still smile and kid around kahit papano just to make the mood more pleasant.

geeeeeessssh. never thought i would feel this way. hay.

and that ends my first job. thanks guys.

Current mood: touched

10:47AM - last day....

although there is one person not talking to me, i won't let it ruin my day.

it's my last day at work and i'm really feeling a lot of lovin'. thanks to my officemates.

Current mood: high in ecstasy

9:29AM - frustration

aaaaaaagghhhh. akala ko okay na lahat. then things would turn out for the worse.

hay. minsan gusto ko na lang maging manhid sa mga nangyayari. HINDI AKO GANUN KABABAW para magalit sa ganung bagay.

kailangan ko lang maglabas ng sama ng loob.

8:55PM - happy day!

i really had a great time today. everything is back to normal. whew.

kahit na hindi ako nakasama sa eurostar with the amphipeeps, i was able to spend time naman with my family. and it's really worth it.

yipee, my sister came home for lunch, which means kumpleto kame!! not to mention that paul also ate lunch with us. wow, things are actually getting better between him and my sister. thank goodness. pinapansin na ng kapatid ko yung boyfriend ko. and okay na that they're seating in just one table. wheeewwww. i'm so glad lunch went out pretty well.

after lunch, paul and i went to town center to watch a movie. (thanks for hanging out with me baby! it's been a while!) nagtatalo kame sa memoirs of a geisha and big momma's... and to be fair, nag bato-bato-pick kame kung anu papanuorin. haha, and we watched big momma's. wasn't really expecting to like it that much since it was a martin lawrence film, which i am not a fan of. but then again, i really had a blast. hahaha, super funny! now i know why my baby likes him so much.

ayun, after namin magtown we went home. chill sandali, while playing some childhood games. hehe, diba baby? pag-alis ni paul, we had family dinner again. na-miss ko tlga na kumpleto kame. and it was time for my sis to leave na ulit.

a good enough day for me. thanks kuya jess.

things are getting better... which is a good thing.

siguro we're just both stressed and thinking too much about everything.

at least medyo okay na.

thanks Kuya Jess.

Current mood: hoping for the best

9:50AM - in total turmoil..

hay. magulo. yun lang ang alam ko.

it' over.. for the meantime lang sana. maybe it's better this way for him. especially ngayon because of his hectic schedule. para i won't expect na rin na magkikita kame and all that shit. and para he won't be grasping for air to have time for me. i think i've done enough damage.

stop crying marion and get a grip. i've been crying the whole week. we seem to be growing apart more and more each day. maybe because we don't get to see and talk that much lately.

i am earnestly praying that things would get better. but right now, i don't think that's gonna happen. maybe God has his own right time.

whatever the outcome, tanggap lang ng tanggap.

Current mood: crashing

11:02AM - last few days...

yipee!! i only have 4 more days left (including today) at work!

haha, i'm so excited! not that i am so desperate to get out of here but because i can have some time for myself.. to relax... sleep for long hours... watch tv... go on vacation... engage in a new sport and all the good things of being a bum. may itenerary na nga ako on the things i need to do eh.

anyway, i have no plans of being a bum for a long time eh. maybe a month would do. this would also be a good time for me to think on what i really wanna do with my life. i need to set my goals straight. i need to figure out if:

1) I still want to study marine biology -- which is what i've always wanted (but i'm not sure if that's the case until now)
2) I want to work for a company where people can boss me around
3) I want to work for our real estate and construction business
4) I want to use what i learned in college and be my own boss -- to be an entrepreneur
5) I want to stay here in the Philippines or migrate to another country

Tough decisions that would really change the goals of my life. I need to figure this out asap. And no one can help me on this.


For the meantime, i'll focus on my work first. Have so many things to do and so little time to accomplish it. It's damn crazy here.
