Summer Lovin'

This morning I thought of how I badly wanted to go to the beach this summer and that my first beach outing is in mid-May while my first out of town trip will be on the last week of April (swimming pool only no beach). Sigh! And then this afternoon my agent called and offered a membership at Sunrise Holiday Mansion*. I immediately accepted because of the magic words - unlimited use of the swimming pool. Hahaha! I am so an Aquarius because of my love for the water. I love swimming (no I'm not a great swimmer). I love the beach! And because it's already summer here in the Philippines for sure all the beaches and resorts will be full. Atleast this place is inclusive for members so I suppose it won't be getting too crowded. Plus it's only in Tagaytay so easy access. :) Can't wait to get my VIP Card on Friday!

*Fucker! I can't do links here at blogger since last week. Just google the site if you want details of the place.

Grazie Grace

I’ve known Grace for more than 5 years. We used to be officemates and then when our office transferred to Alabang we became housemates. Now we’re just friends haha! In 2001 the ASP Convention was held at Cebu. Both of us were fortunate enough to be able to go then even though we weren’t associates. The company has this rule where associates and fellows are the ones who can go every year and then the other staffs may go alternately each year. We enjoyed traveling together so after that we made a pact to go out of town every year – just the two of us. This is our treat for ourselves after the May SOA exams (SOA exams were used to be held every May and December).

Hence the following year, we headed up north to Banaue/Sagada. We didn’t go anywhere in 2003 because we both just transferred to different offices then (wala moolah). We then went to Marinduque the year after that.* Sorry no pictures of those trips because neither of us have digital cameras then. The white sand beaches of Boracay was next in our agenda.

I also visited her once in Hong Kong when she was assigned there.

And then last year we went to Puerto Princesa.

It’s sad that on our the last summer before she goes to the States, we didn’t prepare for any out of town trips. Maybe next year I can come visit her in the States or she can come home and we’ll go the beaches here in the Philippines which I’m sure she’ll miss.


The weekend after her birthday, we threw her a despedida. We rented out a house at Tagaytay and stayed there overnight. The house is really cute.

When My and her family arrived, we went tripping to Chateau Royale. Nice place to have an outing. In fact, our division will go here this summer (but I won’t go).

Mikaelle loved the playground. We liked it, too!

We had lunch at a new Italian resto Piccolo Mondo. The resto boasts of authentic Italian dishes. We figured either the owner is an Italian who married a Filipana or the owner is a Filipina/Filipino who worked in Italy. It turned out it was the latter. A little funny story about the owners son who’s about 3 to 4 years old: there’s a dog in the resto and little boy called to it: ‘doo-ge’ as in Visayan doggy? hehehe

In the afternoon, we visited Lyndon’s house at Royale Tagaytay. Lyndon was a former boss of Grace.

Dinner was at Leslie’s.

When we got back home and all washed up and ready to go to bed, we gave Grace our going-away gift for her – coat and complete manicure-pedicure set. She loved them!


Tonight, we’ll be seeing her again for dinner. Another send-off to my dear friend. I think, I’m just starting to realize that by tomorrow we’ll be miles away from each other. No more dinners, no more late night movies, no more out of town trips. Shit! I don’t want to cry tonight. I’m such a cry-baby. I remember when they had their despedida for me when I left the company we worked for (I left a few months before her), I was bawling like a little girl. Haayy…I don’t want to say ‘goodbye’. I will just say ‘see you soon’ and ‘thank you’.

*Erratum to my Puerto Princesa post.

Life's a Beach

You Should Spend Your Summer at the Beach

You're a free spirit who is always thinking of new ways to have fun.
And you don't just love summer... you live for it.
So, you really should blow off your responsibilities and head to the beach!

Grace Anatomy

Since Grace will be leaving soon for the States, I told her I will celebrate her birthday with her. So last March 9, I left early for work and met up with her at Makati. The plan was dinner at Red Crab then movie. Our day started fine until… Well, I’m getting ahead of myself so let’s start at the beginning.

I asked her to meet me somewhere near her condo since I don’t want to lug around my backpack (I have clothes for my overnight stay with her at her condo and the following night at Tagaytay). She told me to come with her to hear mass at Greenbelt. So we went there to the chapel only to find out that the mass will be at 5:45pm pa. We decided to do the groceries first at Landmark then go back to the chapel. We bought food for our Tagaytay overnight the following day. It was our(with Joel, Gary and My) despedida for her. After groceries, we headed back to Greenbelt chapel and were just in time for the novena. When the mass was over, we were already starving. Excited na mag-Red Crab!

As you can imagine, we were at the resto really early. I think we were the third party to arrive wala pa masyadong tao. We had their dinner buffet which is somewhat disappointing because they only have one viand with crabs in it. Disappointing as it may seem, we still enjoyed the dinner. Pareho kasi kaming matakaw sa seafood. We were there until 8pm as in hilo-hilo na kami sa dami ng alimasag na nakain namin. My feeling then was the same tipsy feeling I have after I had bottles of SanMig light. As in! Pareho kaming nun lang naka-feel ng ganon. Yung sinasabi ng matatanda na nahihilo sila dahil sa dami ng nakain nila na pampa-highblood. Ganon! Anyways, dahil gusto ko sulitin ang buffet nag-dessert pa rin ako kahit sobrang busog na. Haha. Talk about lafang!

The birthday girl

We were right beside the dude playing the piano. Okay naman sya kumanta kaso pag nag-spiels na sya di ko sya maintindihan magsalita =p

Isang funny face naman jan

We didn’t go to the movies after because Grace forgot to bring her eyeglasses. She has DVD of Music & Lyrics, Grey’s Anatomy season 3 and Prison Break at home so we decided to have movie/series marathon na lang. While watching Music & Lyrics, out of nowhere I heard Grace scream: “Waah! Ang laki ng mata ko!” Her right eye was all puffy and red and her left eye is beginning to swell. Have you seen Hitch of Will Smith? The scene where Will Smith had allergy? As in ganon ang itsura ng mata ni Grace! She was panicking telling me that she’s afraid that her eyes might pop out hahaha. Natatawa lang ako sa kanya but I told her we can got to ER of Makati Med. Sabi nya sige daw. While on the cab going to the hospital I was still laughing. I found it hilarious that this will happen on her birthday. Now, she won’t forget her last birthday here in the Philippines.

When we arrived at the ER of Makati Med, they treated her as if it wasn’t an emergency. At the “receiving area” the nurse took her BP, asked her if she’s allergic to anything, when her last menstruation was then ushered us inside. Inside, someone was taking her info: name, address, birthday. Nakakatawa pa yung convo nila ( I didn’t hear this, Grace just told me when we were inside na):

Girl at the ER: Kelan po pinanganak?
Grace: Huh? Single ako di pa ko nanganganak

Wahahaha kwento pa nya irritated pa sya nung sinagot nya yung girl. Well, after she told the girl her birthday it took some time for the girl to realize that it was Grace’s birthday on that same day. After a while the girl said, “Ma’m birthday nyo po ngayon?” to which Grace nodded. Then the girl said, “Happy birthday po” shy na shy pa yung babae ahahahaha.

Eyes popping out? The swelling has subsided here pero maga pa rin ang mata nya. Grace will kill me if she sees this!

After all that hullabaloo (gosh! I imagined how they’ll go about an emergency where the patient is all bloodied. Will the still ask for all that info before he’s treated?!?!?!) they then ushered us inside a room with beds (now this room I remember from watching all that Grey’s Anatomy). Grace was treated by a doctor, asked her if she’s allergic to anything. Grace did not know of any allergies she has. But it turned out that it was an allergic reaction – the worst kind. She was given steroids, antihistamine and a third one I forgot what it’s called. Grace asked the doctor why she’s given steroids at baka daw lalo syang tumaba don hahahah. The doctor said it will relieve the swelling. I don’t which of the drugs given to her was making her sleepy but the doctor said that it will make her sleep for about an hour. So there, the few hours before the end of her birthday we were stuck at the ER of Makati Med. Atleast she was sleeping, I on the other hand was so bored. So bored I took pictures while she was sleeping.

Pati 50 Peso bill di nakaligtas. Pwede na bang photographer? hahaha

But taking pictures only took up a few minutes so I called Joema after.

Grace asked me to wake her up after an hour so I did. But we waited for the doctor to come back for almost an hour. We left the hospital past 12midnight already. Haayy! She was given a prescription so we went to Mercury Drug first before heading back to her place. We needed to sleep as we were going to Tagaytay in a few hours. be continued..

PENny eating PENpals at Manila PEN

We celebrated Penny's birthday by having dinner at Bed Space at Greenbelt 3. They have good food. It was so much fun eating there because of the couch/bed cozy. Yun nga lang the homey feel is taken away by the loud sound system. I guess it's more of a bar than a laid-back king of resto. It's fun taking pictures there coz of the setting nga. Yun nga lang because we're so busy taking pictures and because of the loud music (we wanted to get out of there as soon as we were done eating) nakalimutan namin hingin yung dessert namin! Kaasar lang dahil when we asked for our bill di man lang kami ni-remind that we still have dessert. Bad trip! We ordered kasi yung set meal nila that has appetizer, entree and dessert. Sayang talaga. Lugi kami!

Ayun dahil nga nakalimutan namin na we should have had dessert, we went to Manila Pen to have ice cream. Penny and I both felt very sleepy while we were at Manila Pen.

Basta I remembered Jose being so talkative that night.

That was one week after our Davao trip pero super chika galore pa rin :) Happy birthday Penny! Tumatanda na tayo hahaha

Wednesday, March 14, 2007


We watched 300 last Thursday much to the prodding of Joema. He loves this kinds of stories with battles and the strategies they used - Rome, Greece and other ancient civilization. So he already knows the story of the Battle of Thermopylae even before this movie was made. He loves the movie Alexander and I hate it. But I'm into epic movies plus I loved Sin City so it wasn't a problem.

The movie is a visual feast - from that big well in Sparta to the Spartan soldiers to the Immortals to the elephants.! We love love love the movie. Joema was still raving about it when we got home.

Some crazy one liners we have about the movie:

Cris: Nakita mo ba yung umbok ni Leonidas?
Joema: Huh? di naman ako nakatingin don e.
Cris: Kasama ata sa uniform nila yung six-pack e
Joema: Ang tapang ng Spartans noh. Kung alam lang nila na gagawin lang silang tsinelas ngayon


But then I read that Iran was outraged by the movie.

Oh well, you really can't please everybody.

Hi-Ho Hi-Ho and Off to Work We Go

I've been itching to blog about Penny's bday celeb and Grace's bday/despedida this past weekend. But I feel a bit sad right now with my work. I know I've been raving about my performance evaluation for last year. But I can't help but think that I'm not really happy here. I'm not happy with what I'm doing. On my first job I quit because I didn't like my boss very much plus I feel that she's not giving me work to use up my full potential. So I left and worked for a much nicer boss, much nicer co-workers and much nicer company. I liked my work on my 2nd company. My work there entails long working hours as in late in the evening until 12 midnight. Because of the long working hours, I didn't have much time to study for actuarial exams thus no exams passed while I was there. That was hard because my salary increase depended on my passing the exams which is sad because as much as I like my work, my boss and my co-workers I can't live with only that much salary. Plus I felt that the stress of studying and taking the exams was so much for me. I didn't want to pursue the actuarial career because of that. Taking actuarial exams is investing your time, money and emotions into it. I didn't have the time. I didn't have the money. And I felt I can't take it anymore. So when I saw the advertisement for an opening here at the bank, I applied. And much to my delight they called me for an exam and interview. As they say, the rest is history.

But now, I find myself missing my previous work. I miss the stress that comes with the work. I miss my boss and co-workers who eventually became my friends. The only thing that makes me happy here at my present job is my salary. I know, it's so shallow. I think I'm overpaid with the work I'm doing here. I'm not challenged with my work here. Feeling ko nabo-bobo ako dito. So I decided to make other plans. And that 'other plans' replied to me:

Thank you for submitting your resume and for your interest in opportunities with W. If you are selected for an interview or further information is needed, someone will contact you directly. Otherwise, please keep us in mind and apply for another position in the future.

W is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer.

The purpose of this post: Please pray for me. Please pray that if it's meant for me to stay here, that I should learn to be patient and accept what I have now. But if it's better for me to go to another place then please pray that I will have the courage to do just that.

Last Installment - Davao

On our last night at Davao, we went to a mall, heard mass, bought pasalubong, ate dinner, and chilled in a local coffee shop.

Chimes – this local mall is recommended by Paul. It’s so cool because the exterior looks so much like Greenbelt3 while inside it’s like Rustan’s. They sell Crocs and Havaianas.

San Pedro Cathedral – it’s a Catholic church but looks like a mosque. We went to the 630pm mass and there were a lot of people. And when I say a lot – I mean a LOT! The church is literally overflowing with people. During the communion people were swarming towards the front of the church. The bishop, who was the priest presider that time, said that they are proud of the many people who hear mass there. He said the communion rite takes 10minutes to finish. They say you can make a wish when it’s your first time in a certain church. So I made my wish. Secret na lang kung ano.

Marang and pomelo – Davao is known for their wide variety of fruits which include durian, mangosteen, marang and pomelo. There were no mangosteen and durian in the fruit stand we went to so most of us just bought marang and pomelo. It was my first time to see and, later on, taste marang. Sayang we didn’t take pictures of the fruit. Anyway, I just bought two of those then a few pomelos. I also bought durian and mangosteen candies to alternate for the fruits.

Busy buying pasalubong

Ahfat Restaurant – Paul brought us to this Chinese restaurant at Victoria Plaza. We were making fun of the name of the restaurant. Can’t remember na what we were saying about it basta funny sounding naman talaga yung Ahfat di ba? Since Paul paid for our dinner the previous day, we schemed on how we can pay for dinner that night. You see, whenever our group go out on trips we pool our money so that we have a petty cash fund. For example, we collect P1000/pax at the beginning of the trip then every time we have to pay for something like taxi fare or food, the person in charge of handling the money, usually Penny, will pay for it. That way at the end of the day we don’t have to divide every expenses that we make. So anyway, Penny passed the money purse around the table to reach Janice. Picture this: we were seated at a round table, Paul is seated between Penny and Janice. So the money went around the table para lang makarating kay Janice. We figured Janice should be the one to offer Paul our payment for the dinner. Itong si Paul sneaky, he didn’t ask for the bill while he’s seated pumupunta sya dun sa cashier. Katawa hinabol pa sya ni Janice para lang mag-offer na kami na ang magbabayad. It was during dinner that we tasted marang. Janice brought two marang to the resto (she bought two crates as pasalubong – dead na dead sa marang) and asked the waiters to serve them. Okay naman sya lasang langka.

Jack’s Ridge – after dinner we went to Jack’s Ridge. Para mas masaya pinagkasya kaming lahat sa sasakyan ni Paul. So his vehicle that normally carries 5 pax including him carried 9 pax that night. Sya naman nag-insist e para nga daw masaya kasi nga naman last night na namin don. Parang SUV yung sasakyan ni Paul e kaso no seats were installed at the back kaya parating apat lang ang sinasabay nya sa amin. Anyway, that night Charline and I squeezed ourselves in front then Penny, Al, Janice and Allan were in the middle. Pao and Joema were at the back, yung walang upuan. Naka-Indian seat sila don together with some boxes haha. Enjoy naman e atleast sama-sama kami sa road trip. I can’t remember the name of the coffee house at Jack’s Ridge basta isa lang naman sya dun. There’s a big screen pa outside where Pinoy Big Brother is being shown (first night kasi). Jack’s Ridge is like the overlooking in Antipolo. Tabi-tabing bar and resto overlooking downtown Davao City.

On our last day, we didn’t have time to eat breakfast dahil mga tanghali na gumising haha. Well, actually nag-takeout na lang kami ng McDo then ate at the airport. =) Before we knew it we were waiting for our flight. Too bad, our flight was delayed for about an hour. Tsk, tsk.

One last photo-op at the hallway leading to our room at Alta

Goodbye Davao!

Eto, budget conscious that I am, I just want to document kung gaano kamura ang trips namin. Sayang wasn’t able to start with our Galera trip.

Cebu Pacific roundtrip plane fare – P2,700.32/pax
Terminal Fee – P440/pax (P400 Manila airport, P40 Davao airport)
Alta Pension House – P1,800 (room rate per night, can accommodate 7pax), P700 (room rate per night, for two pax)
Pearl Farm day tour – P1,500/pax
Calinan bus fare – P40/pax
Pomelo – P90/kilo
Marang – P35/kilo
Candies – P25/pack
Entrance Fee – P55 (P50 PEC, P5 Davao Water District)

So including meals and taxi fares, we spent roughly P7,000 each. Not bad di ba? =)

Just a Ride

I remember an episode of Ally McBeal where she has a theme song. Something that she plays in her head whenever she want to feel inspired. Now I don't remember her song but I remember John Cage's song was from Barry White. Ever since then I wanted to have my own theme song. Yes, something I'll play in my head whenever I feel down about what's happening in my life. Now this is my song:

Just a ride
by Jem

Life, it's ever so strange
It's so full of change
Think that you've worked it out then BANG
Right out of the blue
Something happens to you
To throw you off course
and then you

Yeah you breakdown
Well don't you breakdown
Listen to me

It's just a ride, it's just a ride
no need to run, no need to hide
It'll take you round and round
Sometimes you're up
sometimes you're down
It's just a ride, it's just a ride
don't be scared
don't hide your eyes
It may feel so real inside
but don't forget it's just a ride

Truth, we don't wanna hear
It's too much to take
Don't like to feel out of control
So we make our plans
Ten times a day
And when they don't go
our way we

Yeah we breakdown
Well don't you breakdown
Listen to me

It's just a ride, it's just a ride
no need to run, no need to hide
It'll take you round and round
Sometimes you're up
sometimes you're down
It's just a ride, it's just a ride
don't be scared
don't hide your eyes
It may feel so real inside
but don't forget it's just a ride

Slowly, oh so very slowly
except that
there's no getting off
So live it, just gotta go with it
coz this ride's, never gonna stop

Don't you breakdown
No need to breakdown
No need at all

It's just a ride, it's just a ride
no need to run, no need to hide
It'll take you all around
Sometimes you're up
sometimes you're down
It's just a ride, it's just a ride
don't be scared now
dry your eyes
It may feel so real inside
but don't forget enjoy the ride

Amazing Race - Davao Day 2

Our second day at Davao, felt like an entire episode from Amazing Race. Our pit stop – Pearl Farm Resort at Samal Island. Martha of House of Travel, told me to be at the Marina wharf before 8am because the boat leaves the wharf at 8am sharp. Pao, who went to Pearl Farm before, told us the wharf was in Waterfront Insular Hotel. This was seconded by Paul who, bless him, accompanied us that morning. I don’t know if it was too early for the taxi drivers of Davao City but we had a hard time finding a cab that morning. So we agreed that Janice, Al, Charline and Allan should go ahead with Paul and just tell the boat to wait for us. That way we’re sure the boat will still be there if some of us are late. Fortunately, the four of us left behind got a cab immediately after they left. We just let the cab follow Paul’s vehicle. We arrived at 7:50 am at Waterfront Insular. The hotel lobby guard told us that the wharf was not there, he pointed us to a part of the resort where the wharf is. When we got there the guard asked us if we were going to Paradise Island Resort so we told her casually that no we’re going to Pearl Farm. Then she went on in saying, in Bisaya, that the boat at the wharf will not bring us to Pearl Farm. WTF?!?!?! Argh! Pao asked if we can go to the other wharf from there but she told us that the wharfs weren’t connected. We’re all panicking at this moment because she was still talking in Bisaya about God knows what and weren’t answering our questions on where should we go. There were other visitors there who are going to Paradise Island who informed us that the boat going to Pearl Farm is not in Waterfront anymore, that we should go outside the resort, find a cab a go back. Oh.My.God! It was only a few minutes before 8am!!! We were all running towards the gate of the compound. Amidst all the running, I called Martha and asked her if there’s a way to tell the boat to wait for us because we were running late and told her of the series of unfortunate incidents we ran into. We hang up with me hoping that she’ll be able to get hold of the boat. Fortunately were able to find two cabs outside Waterfront, we just told them that we were going to Pearl Farm and they immediately understood. When we got to Marina wharf, we were all asking the guard there – all at the same time – if the boat’s still there…his answer ‘Wala’. Oh my! Oh my! I don’t know what the others were doing and thinking then but I remembered asking him again ‘wala na yung bangka?’. I think the receptionist saw the chaos and caught our attention ‘Ma’am anjan pa po yung bangka’ with matching hands in the air as if telling us to all calm down. Haaay…I guess it’s the same emotion that the contestants get when Phil tells them that it’s a non-elimination leg. That we’re still on the going for the 1 million dollar prize. Only in our case we didn't waste our P1500/pax payment for the Pearl Farm day tour =)

So Janice registered us while Pao left his Clover chips with the guard (you’re not allowed to bring in food to the resort) while the rest of us were at awe of how nice the wharf was. Wharf palang yun e pano pa kaya yung mismong resort di ba. Basta at that moment I think all of us were finally able to breathe and take time to appreciate where we were. We were taking pictures pa while walking towards the boat, si Charline even made a quick bathroom break.

Pekchur pekchur!

Silaw sa araw!

Behind us was a golfcart, that passed us eventually going to the boat. Once we were settled the boat immediately set off. Kami na lang talaga ang hinihintay! We were joking that the people in the boat were thinking ‘Tignan mo tong mga gagong ‘to late na nga picture-an pa ng picture-an’ Hahaha. Al was kidding that no we weren’t late, we came in first before the golf cart, that later on we found out was bringing in the water bottles for all the passengers.

The boat ride going to Pearl Farm took about 45 minutes. We were so excited to take pictures once we set foot on the island.

Look at Joema's evil grin...checkmate na kasi ako. Photo-op lang talagang inayos pa yung pieces.

We were all so excited to go to Malipano Island as well. The staff toured us around the island. I tell you, the service in Pearl Farm is world class. They are all so courteous and service deluxe talaga. Even if we’re all Filipinos there they treated us royalty. I get the feeling kasi na because they’re a first class resort they only take care of their foreigner guests but I was so wrong. The best talaga sa Pearl Farm!

Going around Malipano. The beach staff showed us the private villas by the sea.

We enjoyed the beach at Malipano all to ourselves.

Past 11am other guests were already there so we headed off to lunch back at the main island. The buffet is superb. I especially enjoyed their Japanese rice salad and their shrimps – basta everything na may hipon kinain ko!

We wanted to stay at the Maranao restaurant until 2pm but we were all so full. So we headed off to their infinity pool and lounged around and had our siesta. After our nap, we’re all energized again and took a dip in the pool.

The boat that will take us back to the city will leave at 4pm so we decided to shower an hour before. Unfortunately they only have one shower room each for male and female guests and its situated at the other beach. Charline got in the shower first but while she was there, two other guests came and decided to just stay at the shower area. I told Penny that we had to do something or they’ll go in before us. So I knocked on the shower room to tell Charline that we’ll be putting our things already. Good thing Charline was already done and told us to go ahead and take our shower and she’ll dress outside the shower area. I also told Penny that maybe we could shower together since we have our bathing suits on naman chaka para di masyadong matagal ang intay nung 2 pang girls. Kaso while we were inside, nagpaparinig na yung dalawa kesyo maiiwan na daw sila ng boat at maiiwan na sila ng eroplano. Yeah right! We were there first so it’s just about right that we should use the shower first. Their male companion on the other hand took a shower after Joema (who was the first to go for the guys). Allan was supposed to go next but their male companion put his things all around the shower area. Talagang nanguna na! Buti na lang guys are faster to taking their showers. We were thinking nga na imposible naman mang-iwan yung boat (from Samal to the city) because if they leave someone then they have to arrange for the overnight accommodations of those persons left. And I don’t think they’ll do that. Unfortunately for us, they weren’t left behind by the boat and they were seating right in front of us. We were telling the story to Al and Janice, who took their shower backs at our hotel in the city, at the same time the two ladies boarded the boat. Hay grabe di kami makatingin ng diretso sa kanila. Mukhang guilty hahahaha! But we still enjoyed the boat ride..

When we got back to the wharf, Paul was already there waiting for us. But they didn’t leave immediately as we called for another cab for the four of us. We took pictures while waiting for the cab

Kaso pagdating naman ng cab Joema was in the cr so Charline and Allan took the cab together with Penny and Pao. The girls we had a little incident at the shower area was still there when their cab left. We thought the staff of the marina hailed the cab back to the resort because there was a mix-up (that they should have gotten that taxi instead of us). Hahaha isusumpa na talaga nila kami. Buti na lang hindi. Charline told us that the staff just asked the cab to call for another one for the last group.
All in all, our day trip to Pearl Farm was action-packed and relaxing at the same time. The place is definite worth going back to. Maybe an overnight stay next time. :)
