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!!!

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:

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!!! :D

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.
