Chicken nEGGets!

Har har… the lazy boy that is JM! To take up less time, less energy, less effort and less money, I cooked the egg while frying the nuggets! Kasya naman sila sa Teflon frying pan eh, so okay lang, diba?!

Nothing new today. Just some few failed attempts to download Windows Media Player 10 (shout out to Lorenz!!! [JM: as requested! >_^]) and having a File Manager installed on my cellphone so that I can install apps on it thru the memory card.

Drained… Later!

GREAT NEWS! The tactic that I planned yesterday for mom to buy me a Memory Card Reader worked! Ergo, I now have a memory card reader which enables me to transfer photos to and fro the PC. PhotoBlog!!! Har har… it didn’t require me too much begging because mom obliged at once.

I LOVE YOU MOM!!!

BUT, when the personnel was writing the invoice for my purchase, I rummaged through the other devices to see if I can catch a better one. Then I asked her the price of some Flash-Drive Look-Alike that is an SD/MMC Card Reader. It was Php650. I bought mine for Php800 (but it’s an all-in-one reader). Shet!!! I could’ve just bought the cheaper one!!! It’s more handy and it’s cheaper!!! Arrrgghhh… well, what’s done is done…

SO, here’re the pictures!!!

These little trinkets are being sold along the “side walks” of Glorietta; (B) Mom waiting for Kuya Jay to finish choosing his clothes; (C) The most-awaited horror flick of next month, “Shutter”, showing on June 1; (D) This cute little saleslady had to wear bunny ears. Poor employee… :p ; (E) What’s the long line for? People are being given FREE Hershey’s S’mores; (F) My newly-bought MEMORY CARD READER!
Went to Makati with my sis, bro and mom yesterday for me and my brother to buy new clothes for the upcoming classes. I only bought four shirts and a jogging pants, as I can’t really make up my mind on what shirts to choose. I’m not really a fan of the fad, but I wear whatever is comfortable for me. Oh, and I realized one thing while shopping: I’m a fan of STATEMENT Shirts. Orayt!

(A) BuskoDAYS Batch 13!; (B) Went to Megamall after the PostDAYS, dined at the food court; (C) Juvelan and I looking at several photo trip pictures we took in our long stay in the foodcourt; (D) Vice Jel and Michael, the cutesy DAYS couple (pero indi sila ah!), sang their hearts out in Videoke with Cruisin’; (E) Went bowling after the Videoke; (F) Some guys didn’t want to go bowling, so they played billiard (Geh in the Picture)

Had a great time last Saturday during the PostDAYS. The usual kakulitan of the Days staffers has always been present during gatherings like these. The participants had a sharing of their experiences after the Workshop, plus a talk given by Kuya Dave.

After the PostDAYS proper, Batch13 went ahead to Megamall while some of the staffers followed shortly after. We dined, we shot pictures, we sang at the Videoke in EUREKA!, we bowled and we played Billiards. Classic DAYZERS get-together at its finest!

Some people really have the knack for photo trips (I’m one of them). Ate Odie convinced these guys to pose, and, well, they obliged. Here’s the outcome:

Har har!!! Whatta pose!!! >_^

Also, while ordering in one of the stores in the food court, I noticed something unusual in the food:

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Shet!!! May langaw sa pagkain!

THE BAD PART. There was a fly in one of the foods in display.
THE GOOD PART. The food in display was artificial.
THE FUNNY PART. I couldn’t believe the fly fell for fake food! Hilarious! It’s so funny I had to get a picture of it eventhough people are already shooting deep dark stares at me.

More of this event’s pictures in my photo gallery
Image hosted by Photobucket.comHAPPY ANNIVERSARY, Kabangka!

Celebrated the VESSEL Anniversary last Tuesday at Kuya Juvelan’s place. It was just a simple gathering, but it was a milestone since it marked the “revival” of the VESSEL Movement. Kuya Juvelan, Kuya Noel, Kuya Luis, Ate Kate, Kuya Jako, Ate Tin, Carlo, Jerome, Marvin and I are of attendance. It was simple yet it’s a very profound and meaningful event for all of us.

Well, those are all for now! I wasn’t able to squeeze in too many pictures because that’d increase loading time for my page, that’s why I condensed them in thumbnails.

More pictures coming! >_^

I open my eyes

I try to see but I’m blinded by the white light

I can’t remember how

I can’t remember why

I’m lying here tonight

And I can’t stand the pain

And I can’t make it go away

No I can’t stand the pain

How could this happen to me

I made my mistakes

got no where to run


The night goes on

As I’m fading away

I’m sick of this life

I just wanna scream

How could this happen to me

Everybody’s screaming

I try to make a sound but no one hears me

I’m slipping off the edge

I’m hanging by a thread

I wanna start this over again

So I try to hold onto a time when nothing mattered

And I can’t explain what happened

And I can’t erase the things that I’ve done

No I can’t

How could this happen to me

I made my mistakes

got no where to run

The night goes on

As I’m fading away

I’m sick of this life

I just wanna scream

How could this happen to me

I made my mistakes

got no where to run


The night goes on

As I’m fading away

I’m sick of this life

I just wanna scream

How could this happen to me

*Sigh*. Ang hirap intindihin ng sarili ko. Ang hirap kilalanin kung sino ba ako. Ang hirap hulaan kung ano ba ang next move ko. Ang hirap. I’m so unpredictable. Mas fickle-minded pa’ko sa pinakamaarteng babae sa buong mundo!

Ewan ko ba… IDENTITY CRISIS? Perhaps. There have been an uber lot of events these days that had me turning an abrupt 360 degrees and back. It’s so hard to fathom what the “REAL ME” is nowadays…

I need time to reflect… I need time to shout… I need time to get all my emotions out…

Kuya Jess… take me to Batulao… =,(

Shet… uggghhh… shet talaga…

Kuya Jess, pakitanggal na po ang insecurities ko sa katawan!!! Ayoko na nito… huhuhuhuhu Kuya Jess please!!!

Ayoko na po maging KJ dahil sa mga insecurities na ito…

Tulungan nyo po ako maging masaya para sa kanila… kahit na… kasalanan ko naman kung bakit nawala sila… waaaahhhh…

Masakeet masakeett…

ouch ouch ouch…

huhuhuhuu…

tama na po…

yoko na po…

please end this now…

“I choose my own destiny that befalls me into a state of shattered dreams and broken promises… I blame the whole world I created within the inepts of my soul… it’s not me… it’s not me… no it’s not… and it will never be.”

“Destiny has beckoned. Ouster is the Winner. I lose the game. My comrades have set sail before me. They have found a new island. And it’s not me… not me… it will never be me…”

“The whole world has turned its back on me. But I should not be toiled down. I should instead turn my back against the world, too, hoping to find a new world that has its face turned at my direction…”

I have never felt this way before… so much wrath… so much anger… but it’s my fault… it’s my fault… I have no right to feel this way… it’s my fault anyway…

*sob, sob*

You Are 55% Normal
(Somewhat Normal)



While some of your behavior is quite normal…
Other things you do are downright strange
You’ve got a little of your freak going on
But you mostly keep your weirdness to yourself

Well, at least I’m somewhat normal. Har har… middle child syndrome on the verge of popping out! >_^

Your #1 Match: ESFP

The Performer

You are a natural performer and happiest when you’re entertaining others.
A great friend, you are generous, fun-loving and optimistic.
You love to laugh – and you like almost all people equally.
You accept life as it is, and you do your best to make each day fantastic.

You would make a good actor, designer, or counselor.

Schucks… pang-artista pala ang mukhang itu!!! Har har har…

Your Deadly Sins

Gluttony: 100%
Sloth: 100%
Envy: 40%
Pride: 40%
Wrath: 40%
Greed: 20%
Lust: 0%
Chance You’ll Go to Hell: 49%
You’ll die from a diabetic coma.
How Sinful Are You?

GUILTY AS CHARGED!!! 😀

You Are 13 Years Old
13

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view – and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what’s to come… love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You’ve had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You’ve been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Ho-hum… >_<

Long story short, I accompanied Ron today. I went to his place to have lunch then we proceeded to BIR. He ran into some problems with his requirements (dunno the whole deal, I was watching Star Wars: Attack of the Clones at the waiting area!) and so he didn’t accomplish what he went there for.

Which, by the way, gave us more time to spend for ourselves. We headed straight to the MRT Station then off to Megamall. Ron texted two of his “bata” so that we would have more company. We went straight to Power Books to wait for them. 2:30pm was the meeting time.

It was 1:55pm. With nothing else to do we roamed around for a very short while then I thought of doing Kokology with Ron. There were no seats available for those who want free reading (poor people like us), but JAVAMAN was open although we found it disrespectful to just sit there and read books without even purchasing anything from the cafe. Ergo, we ordered a bottled water to serve as passport to one of their tables. Talk about being poor BIG TIME.

And so we got comfortably seated in one of their tables doing KOKOLOGY. We had many rounds of reading scenarios and answering questions that we didn’t notice we have finished the entire book already! Har har… we had so many laugh trip moments but the best one was this:


Scenario: You bought a music box from a novelty shop.

Questions:
1. How long until the music box stops playing (in other words, get broken)?
Ron’s Answer: 6 years
My Answer: 2 months
Interpretation: That’s until how long you think love will be able to endure pain/suffering/trials.

2. What is your reaction to this situation (the music box getting broken)?
Ron’s Answer: Oh, Okay… nasira… >_^
My Answer: Shet! Ang cheap ha!!!
Interpretation: That will be your reaction after you have ended a relationship.


Nyahaha panalo yung sagot ko!

Anyways… after doing some more Kokologies Ron got hungry and so we bought a chocolate cake to share. We kept on texting Jason and Iggy, our two companions and two of Ron’s “bata”, because they were taking quite a while already (we’ve been doing Kokology for an hour and they’re still not in the perimeter!). I grabbed another Kokology book and we did it again for about 15 minutes or so until the two arrived.

After around an hour and a half of waiting, the two arrived and so we went to McDonald’s to eat. But Ron thought otherwise, and had us check the times for the movies since he wanted to watch one. We went to SilverScreen, initially planning on watching Amytiville Horror but the next screening’s not after two hours. Jason suggested House of Wax, but I contested strongly enough because it was an R-13 movie, and I had an experience before of having us show our IDs to prove we’re over 13, but unfortunately we don’t have them and so we weren’t able to watch the movie (House of the Dead; stupid policy!). But because Ron looked old enough, we were able to buy tickets without further questioning. >_^

After buying tickets for the 5pm screening of House of Wax, we proceeded downstairs again to eat. Ron and Jason treated me and Igy to McDonald’s, since the both of us didn’t have enough money to cover for further expenses. I just couldn’t believe this day, because during our prior gimmicks with Ron he never ever, AND I MEAN NEVER EVER, treated us into something. This day is extraordinary. >_^

After eating we went inside the movie theater already. The movie hasn’t started yet but we had our usual pre-movie entertainment: TRAILERS. After a short while, the movie started playing.

*** SPOILERS RIGHT AHEAD ***


HOUSE OF WAX
House of Gross!

I thought House of Wax was just like any other scary movie out there that utilizes booming sound effects to scare off people. Well, it is, for once, but that’s not the whole package.

Story. One word: cliche. This type of storyline (we get into a town, we struggle to get out of it) has been used over and over again by many Hollywood films before that I can’t even single out a movie that shares the same theme because there are so many of them! (Lame excuse…).

House of Wax starts off with six people (I forgot their names already) inter-related with each other. There’re two siblings, the boyfriend of the girl sibling, the best friend of the girl sibling, the friend of the guy sibling, and the boyfriend of the friend of the girl sibling who happens to also be the friend of the friend of the guy sibling. It’s complicated, I know, don’t even ask. Anyway, they were out on a road trip to catch a football game, THE football game of the season, in some faraway state. In the attempt to get there on time, they looked for a shortcut to take that led them to a deep forest. They had to camp out because the sun set out on them.

While camping out, they encountered a man driving a huge pickup truck near their campsite. It had its headlights fully lit on them, and the man driving the pickup was utterly silent he didn’t even answer their question on why he was there until he drove away.

The next day, the fan belt of one of the cars (they had two) got broken that led them to look for a nearby gas station. They ended up in a little town famous for its House of Wax (oh, what a give away). The first encounter with a townsfolk was strange enough, and boy, so are the others (let’s just leave it at that).

What really puzzles me with the story is the lack of background for each of the characters, including the serial killer, which led to a few misunderstandings of the plot and an all-out guessing game for who’s who and why he did that.

The real score of the story is its gruesome factor. I don’t want to waste your 82 pesos because this factor really made the expense worth it.

Acting. Few Words: If the story was gruesome enough, Paris Hilton being there is even grosser. She’s really just for the preppy-kikay type of appearances, not for drama nor even comedy or whatever. The rest, though, hands down.

Production and Technicalities. I can say it’s a big-budgeted film, with what all the wax people/places burning down to the drain, I guess you kinda need a lot of money. Cinematography-wise, it was fantastic, including some Blair-Witch-effect of the video camera. But still, Paris was disturbing. VERY disturbing.

Rating. All in all, I give it a 3/5 that could be accounted for the production and the way the story was delivered. It could’ve been 4 if not for the gruesome parts (that left me and Ron hanging for dear life wishing the movie would end already) or even 5 if not for Paris Hilton. >_^


After the movie (which left Ron and I struggling for our guts that almost fell out of our bodies), we ate at Jollibee (still Ron’s treat, could you believe that?!) and went home.

I was trying to utilize my Iconrate hosting account (all 300 megs of it) and so I installed a few scripts in it via Fantastico. I installed both WordPress and the Coppermine for my blog and my photo gallery.

I was getting pissed with WordPress because I can’t import my archives from blogger. Mind you, I’m a person deeply attached to my past and so I cherish these little trinkets of memories we have come to know as Archives. I mean, they’re my only surviving archives (except for a week’s worth of entries — my very first ones at that — that I managed to save thanks to Blogger), because most of my archives went down the drain when my former sites got erased/crashed/flushed down the toilet.

But you’ve got to admit, it’s kind of entertaining to read past entries, doesn’t it?

Mushiness aside, I looked for some themes instead for the blog, but I couldn’t find any that suited my exact taste of how I wanted my blog to look. Plus I was having semi-hesitation attacks to continue on with wordpress since I get really attached to my archives (oh boy here we go again).

And then I decided, For A While is indispensible. I’ll stay here all the while (haha… that For A While thing is really just for title’s sake na lang).

Moving on, Coppermine is a gem. I love how it organizes my pictures complete with thumbnails, titles, captions, albums, a rating system and a comment feature! Too bad I can’t disclose the location of it yet, as I’m still in the process of doing aesthetics for the thing and uploading tons of pics into it.

Well, in the next few days/weeks/months I’m planning on making a website again in Frontpage, finally after hybernating from the said program for a year or so. I miss Web Design. I mean, this is the thing people have come to know me for (aside from the cute face. Hehe… :p). And so I’m slowly getting back into it, so as to utilize my unused disk space and unused FREE domain name (which, by the way, will eventually expire this september anyway).

But don’t worry… as I’ve said, For A While is indispensible as of the moment.

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who have a split personality – cold as ice on the outside but hot as fire in the heart.
In love, you feel the most alive when your partner is patient and never willing to give up on you.
You’d like to your lover to think you are loyal and faithful… that you’ll never change.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.
Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future… one you can grow with.
Your risk of cheating is 100%. You are not suited for a monogamous relationship.
You think of marriage pessimistically. You don’t think happy marriages exist anymore.
In this moment, you think of love as commitment. Love only works when both people are totally devoted.

Schucks. That is sooo true.

You know what I’ve just realized? I have a knack for ending a certain friendship/relationship in the gloomiest way imagineable. I don’t know… one day we’re this and then *poof*… I just disappear into the depths of my own mystery.

Could it be accounted for by my sheer attitude of being a person na madaling kausap? Or maybe it’s because of the way I project myself when I’m angry or mad, which is total devil-may-care attitude? Maybe it’s because of my commitment-phobic outlook towards a relationship?

I don’t know… all I know is, I end a relationship kapag sawa na ako sa mga nangyayari, at kapag nawawala na ang spontaneity of the relationship, which is a major factor.

To all my friends I’ve left before… bear with me. Gan’to talaga ako… kaya payo ko lang kapag gusto nyo ko kaibiganin, ihanda nyo na ang sarili niyong masaktan, kasi masakit ako mang-iwan sa ere. As in.

I don’t know… maybe I’m destined to live life alone. Khen, totoo na ‘to… single-blessedness na talaga… wala na’kong hahanapin pa! >_^

This is completely random, as in. I couldn’t remember the dates nor the chronological order the things happened, but whuddaheck. >_^

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThis is what I would like to call, the Pink-et Fences (Corny talaga ako by nature…)

These pink fences were installed just last week, because that was the only time I noticed it while going to UP (in Quezon Ave., Pantranco Terminal). I guess it’s for discipline’s sake na rin, because people tend to ride the jeepneys right at the side of EDSA, which is a killer highway by the way. These pink fences ought to be here in sidewalks, not on the road because it really causes accidents (especially those huge cement barriers). One downside with this, though: a long walk before you finally get to ride a jeep. But whuddaheck, we need to discipline ourselves, right?!

Image hosted by Photobucket.comUmmm… sungit? Naubusan siguro ng food…

Went to Pansol with Ate Tin and her family (including Kuya Juvelan, since he’s her cousin) last May 8. We rode the jeepney to Laguna and boy, were we jampacked! I didn’t like the place at all, but I enjoyed their company all the while. The water was uber hot, a trademark of Pansol. AND YOU DON’t WANNA KNOW WHAT COLOR THE WATER IS. (It’s green, by the way, with little black trinkets of God-knows-what floating by the sides of the pool). Pansol, never again!

Image hosted by Photobucket.comBye, Jerome! It was a nice 2-3 years with you!

Jerome held his birthday slash thanksgiving slash communion slash send-off slash whatever party last May 16. All his friends, relatives, his parents’ friends, churchmates and everyone who knows him were there. It was a somewhat lonely night, as Jerome has finally decided to enter the seminary. Well, whatever it is you want in life, Jerome, we, your friends, are always here for you!

This has got to be one of the best BuskoDAYS Workshop I’ve ever attended. It was GRACE under PRESSURE, since we had only about one week to concretely prepare for the workshop (former weeks were allotted for just planning, not execution since we were oblivious as to where the workshop would be held). We had tons of problems but we’ve surpassed them all, complete with smiles on our faces. Congrats on Batch 13, and good luck to Batch 14’s Rectress Ate Odie and her super gorgeous and funny Vice Rectress, Ate Jel!

Went to Glorietta to watch one of Hale’s gigs with SpongeCola and SugarFree (and partly to have my CD signed na rin). I got to Glorietta just in the nick of time, when Hale was performing their 1st song, Broken Sonnet. I was a bit hesitant to approach the band members to ask for an autograph, but when I saw other fans do their thing, I followed them and successfully had my copy signed. It was a very unusual experience for me, since I was standing near the backstage dressing room, where stars literally just pass by in front of me.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comHow did this picture get in here?!

Well, as always, random conceitedness. This time, I had this picture taken the very right moment I opened my eyes in the morning. Huh… talk about major conceitedness!

Kuya Juvelan, Ate Grace and Eiman

Hung around Megamall with fellow Dayzer friends last May 19 to watch Star Wars Revenge of the Sith. While waiting for the movie’s playing time, we hung around EUREKA! first, and these three just couldn’t restrain themselves from riding those kiddie rides! Haha… they were so funny I had to take a picture of them!

Well, those are all for now. I still had tons of pictures but most of them are of me, me and me. Yes, I know, I love myself, don’t you? Har har… I also noticed something about my photo subjects these days… I’m starting to love taking pictures of sceneries, and I was getting kinda good at it, I think. I’ll post some sceneries later on. CIAO! >_^

I found this short snippet posted by one of my friends in Friendster. The whole article aroused my curiosity and so I posted it on my Bulletin Board. Well, as of writing, I have received quite a number of reactions from friends, and so I’m posting it here for you to read, too.

Just a reminder, though, I did not write the article. But I wholeheartedly share the sentiments implied by the author.

Happy Reading! ^_^

Sa mga loveless!!

Bakit ba tuwing may “get2geder” ang mga tao,

mapa-family reunion man or simpleng barkada

gimik,ang unang tanong sayo ay

“May boyfriend/girlfriend ka ba?”

at bago ka pa maka-sagot ay maririnig mo naman

ang

“Bakett walaaaaaa??!”

Hayyy, kelangan ba talagang may bitbit kang

Boylet o Girlet sa mga occasions na ito?

Pano kung wala talaga?

Alanganamang maki-usap pa ako sa mga “close”

Guy/Girl friends ko para mag-panggap na “kami”?!

Di naman ata tama yun, dee-bah?

How I wish na sana mas maintindihan ng mga tao

na sa mga panahon ngayon,

“accepted” na sa society na MEDYO made-

delay ang pag-iisang dibdib ng mga kababaihan/kalalakihan…

especially girls/guys like me who want to get into so

many things all at the same time.

I also wish that people would understand that

OKAY LANG AKO

and the rest of THE SAMAHANG NG MALALAMIG ANG

PASKO…

Valentines day, Birthday..etc.

I mean, we do get lonely once in a while…

naiingit din dun sa may mga LOVELIFE…

paminsan-minsan?

kung minsan naman ay nagmumuni-muni sa mga past

kilig moments?

but these lonely moments

do not and will not make our “world” stop…

Isipin nyo nalang, na kung wala kaming mga single

friends nyo,

eh di wala kayong paghihingaan ng sama ng loob

tuwing nag-aaway kayo ng boylet or girlet nyo?

wala rin kayong “instant date” kung sakaling

nangailangan kayo?…

wala rin kayong mahihila sa mall

para maghanap ng magandang regalo for your

better-half pag Christmas o kaya pag bday nya.

at ang pinaka-mahalaga sa lahat,

wala kayong KAKAMPI

if things between you and your labidabs don’t

work out.

Marami naman sa aming mga singles ay

nakaranas na rin na “ma-in-love”..

yun nga lang,

obvious ba??????????

it all didn’t work out!

Pero di naman kami “bitter” o galit sa mundo…

and totoo nga nyan eh

mas lumalalim ang kahulugan ng “love” para samin.

When you’re all by yourself,

there’s more time to reflect and think what you

really want it life.

Mas naiisip mo kung ano ba talaga ang

makakapagbigay ng tunay na ligaya sayo…

at mas naiisip mo kung pano matutupad ang lahat

ng mga pangarap mo.

And while reflecting,

we also get to imagine that we will,

one day….

end up with someone

who will share those dreams with us.

Di naman sa nang-iinggit ako pero masaya rin ang

buhay naming mga single…

Biruin mo we can go out with anybody,

anytime…that is.

We can get into all kinds of things..

like go to the gym regularly..

or get into all kinds of sports…

or any “Self-enhancement” programs, etc…

Mejo tipid din ang buhay single

kasi la naman kaming po-problemahin tuwing

Valentines day or Christmas…

o diba ang saya?

Sa palagay ko naman ay lahat tayo ay may

karapatang sumaya ke single man o attached ka.

I guess may kanya-kanya lang tayong panahong

lumigaya at Diyos lamang ang makapagsasabi…

kung kelan nga dadating and oras na yon.

So, para sa mga kasalukuyang “ATTACHED”,

I wish you all the luck and happiness.

Should there be any problems,

don’t forget that your SINGLE friends are always

here for you!!!!!

Sa mga “bagong SINGLES” naman,

wag nang magmukmok!

Enjoy life….enjoy the single life!!!

There are a lot of things that you will still

discover.

At tandaan mo,

DI KA NAG-IISA!!!

madami-dami tayo..hehehehe

At dun naman sa kapwa kong mga SINGLES…

I hope that we are one in believing that we long for

someone

NOT BECAUSE WE WANT TO BE HAPPY

but we long for someone because we want to share our happiness with that special person for the rest of

our lives….

Cheers to being Single…Enjoy Lang!

Tayo’y nagdiriwang muli ng ating anibersaryo, kabangka!

Di lingid sa ating kaalaman na ang ating bangka’y medyo bumagal sa paglalayag sa nakaraang taon. Sariwa pa sa aking isipan noong mahigit isang taon na ang nakakaraan nang medyo naging malumanay ang ating paglalayag.

Kahit mabagal tayo, at least kumikilos pa rin! Nawala nga yung internal formation, pero mga external affairs naman ang tinira natin. Nandyan yung graveyard shift natin sa NAMFREL, yung pamosong Savio AVP natin for the Savio@50 Congress, yung mga pag-facilitate ng mga Days With The Lord Workshop, yung Alay-Lakad at kahit nga lang yung simpleng pag-prusisyon at pagbaba sa mga bahay-bahay nung ating cross, sama-sama pa rin tayo!

Natutuwa ako kasi nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataong makasakay sa bangkang nagngangalang VESSEL (wow… ummm… pun intended?). Dahil sa mga Ka-VESSEL kong ito, ako’y napabalik sa pagtahak ng landas ng ating pinakamamahal na si Kuya Jess. Dahil sa VESSEL, nagbago ako… at utang ko ang pagkatao ko ngayon dahil sa VESSEL!

Kaya magbabayad na ako… wait lang… withdraw lang ako… (shet ang kornee!!!)

Anyways… sa aking mga Ka-VESSEL Kabangka,Image hosted by Photobucket.comHAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

See you lahat sa salu-salo mamaya!!!
