I'm Back at Work!

Author: admin // Category: , ,
.
7-day vacation leave..eto ang naifile ko sa office para lang makapagpahinga at magbakasyon sa Zambales ng tatlong araw at pumunta sa Puerto Galera ng Weekends. Abangan nyo pala ang buong detalye ng aking kwento at karanasan sa Puerto Galera. Ngayon eto ako balik sa bangko na pinaglilingkuran ko. Tambak ang trabaho lahat napending nang ako ay magbakasyon. Bagamat nakakapagod..pero ganito ang buhay, kelangan kumita at kumayod dahil kung hindi..kawawa ako at gugutumin ang pamilya ko.
.
Pagpasok pa lang sa office lahat na bumati ng “Welcome Back”. One-on-one meeting agad sa boss ko tungkol sa mga nangyari sa mga nagdaang araw. Pagkatapos balik sa desk para simulan ang tambak na trabaho. Eto ang buhay ng isang bangkero. Maraming pinaglilingkuran, maraming sineserbisyuhan. Maraming pera sa bangko pero sa kumpanya un at hindi sa akin. Lingid sa kaalaman ng lahat, kapag nasa bangko ka raw malaki ang sweldo. Well magtanung tanong na lang kayo sa mga kakilala nyo. Minsan talaga maiisip mo…”pede bang umupo na lang at magtutulog sa bahay pero kumikita ka pa rin ng pera?”. Ngunit alam nating lahat na imposible yun.
.
Isang araw na lang at long weekend vacation na ulit. Muli akong magpapakasaya sapagkat eto ang araw ng aking 4th summer escapades. Pupuntahan naming ang Isla ng Anawangin sa Zambales ulit. Malapit lang ang bahay bakasyunan naming duon pero hindi ko pa sya napupuntahan kahit kelan. Kaya ngayon eto ako sabik na magenjoy.

Lechon is Best Pork Ever! - TIME Magazine

Author: admin // Category: , , ,
.
The timing of giving worldwide concern over swine flu absolutely gives a bad impression and unsuitability but I could not resist in giving my full attention to this one. It also seems not even a possible outbreak of the said flu could stop TIME Magazine from saying that “LECHON”, a Philippine pork delicacy, is the Best Pork on its Best of Asia Lists of 2009.
.
They mention that Anthony Bourdain’s pronouncement that he had just eaten “The Best Pig, Ever” in Cebu has only cemented our national view that we make a pretty darned good roast pig. For the information of everybody, Bourdain is a celebrity TV chef and has a famous travel-food show “No Reservations”.
.
"Many viewers were as surprised by the hyperbole as by the country he situated it in. But not Filipinos, among whom the zenith of porky perfection is an indisputable fact. It was just a matter of time before the rest of the world found out," said TIME writer Lara Day on the magazine's write-up.
.
Day went on to describe how the delicious delicacy is prepared with a variety of stuffings and spices, and eventually cooked slowly over a coal-fire until it is golden brown and crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. "You could call it the Platonic ideal of a pig, but it's doubtful if Plato, or even an entire faculty of philosophers, could have imagined anything so exquisite," she wrote.
.
Mabuhay! and Kudos to the Philippines, for the pride of having a well known delicacy like lechon.

Swine Virus Attacks

Napanood ko ang video na ito kanina sa TV Patrol. Sa kasalukuyan ay inalerto na ang Dept. of Health(DOH) natin pati na rin ang WHO (World Health Organization) ang mga otoridad hinggil sa kumakalat na sakit na ito na kumitil na ng maraming buhay sa Mexico at sa Amerika at para maiwasan na rin na makapasok ito sa Pilipinas. Sinabi rin na sa ngayon, ay wala pa naman ganitong kaso sa Pilipinas bagamat ang lahat ay pinapayuhan na maging malinis sa katawan at magingat upang hindi dapuan ng ganitong sakit.

I'm A Banker!

Author: admin // Category: , , , ,
.
Yes…Im proud to say that I am a Banker. I’ve been in the industry for almost 8 years. I graduated with a course of BSBA major in marketing, huh!…but maybe because it was my destiny to become a banker. As an executive of a bank, I was exposed to different experiences and areas in banking system. I started my career as a credit card authorizer in an affiliated credit card company of a Bank owned by Ayala Group. Thru learning, I was able to identify the operational features of the said bank product. After 2 years, I decided to look for a greener pasture and transferred to another local bank now merged and owned by the Aboitiz Group. I worked there as a remittance processor. Thru experience also, I have identified the cash flows of the money being sent by the Filipino OFW’s to their families here in the Philippines.
.
Now as an operation officer in a foreign bank (a branch of the 2nd largest Japanese Bank), this career move gave me a lot of opportunities to widen my knowledge of the banking system as I was exposed in handling and processing loans, foreign exchange and money market transactions.
.
As I go beyond, continues learning comes thru hardship and dedication. I’m still in the process of learning a lot of things about the banking system. Maybe one of this days, I will decide to broaden my knowledge and pursue another areas I want to explore. Because learning will start from ourselves and thru learning, we will be able to achieve our goals in life.

Attention: Credit Card Users

Author: admin // Category: , , , ,
.
Ilang oras bago ang alis naming papuntang Puerto Galera ay naisipan kong magkwenta ng mga nagastos ko, ng mga resibo at napansin ko marami na naman akong “for billing” sa mga credit card ko. Naisipan ko tuloy gawan ng entry ulit ang tungkol sa credit card. Ang unang trabaho ko ay sa isang Credit Card company kaya’t kahit papaano ay mga natatago akong kaalaman tungkol sa sirkulasyon ng credit card business.
.
Gumagamit ka ba ng Credit Card? Problema na nga ba ngayon ang credit card? Masyado na ba talaga magpatubo ang mga Credit Card Company?
.
Ayon sa aking pananaliksik, dahil sa nangyayaring krisis sa buong mundo ngayon, lumaki ang numero ng mga Pilipino o kahit ng mga tao sa buong mundo na gumagamit ng credit card ngayon. Dahil walang cash…may credit card naman eh..
.
Kung ating iisipin malaki ang naitutulong sa atin ng credit card. Ang credit card parang Boyscout..laging handa!!! Kapag wala kang cash..iswipe mo lang mabibili mo na ang lahat ng gusto mo. Ngunit ating pakatandaan pagkatapos gumastos may pambayad ba tayo pag dating ng billing statement natin?
.
Sabi ng iba, sindikato daw ang credit card, kasi sa sobrang laki daw ng membership fee na sinisingil syo eh lugi ka na. Minsan pa grabe maningil ang mga ahente. Hindi mo pa due date nandito na at iniistorbo ka na sa paniningil.
.
Kung tutuusin, wala naman nakukulong sa utang. Kapag di ka nagbayad ng utang mo sa credit card ay hindi ka naman makukulong. Yung nga lang ay magugulo ang buhay mo dahil sa kaliwa’t kanan na mananakot at manghaharass sa iyo na magbayad ka ng utang mo. Hindi na rin magiging maganda ang credit card standing mo. Kapag dumating ang araw na mangailangan ka ng pera, wala ka nang mauutangan ng malaking halaga kasi pangit na ang naging credit history mo. Bilang isang yuppie na lunod sa paggamit sa credit card, narito ang ilan sa mga payo tungkol sa paggamit ng credit card.
.
1. Wag lubus lubusin o magmax-out ang credit limit ng card nyo. Yan ang hirap sa ating mga Filipino nangungutang tyo pero hindi tayo marunong magbayad. Ubos ubos ang biyaya kapag bayaran na ay nakatunganga. Siya pa ang magagalit, sya na nga ang umutang, sya na nga ang tinulungan.
.
2. Huwag kang magmimintis ng pagbabayad, Kahit minimum payment bayaran mo upang hindi pumangit ang credit card history mo. Kapag namintis ka sa pagbabayad, doble charge ka pa..lalo ka lang mababaon sa utang.
.
3. Hangat maari kung may pambayad naman, huwag magminimum payment. Kasi may karagdagan charge yun. Kung magkano ang inutang mo..bayaran mo ng buo para wala kang extra charge.. Give and take relationship rin yan.
.
4. Hindi porket may credit card ka eh mayaman ka na. Tandaan mo nangungutang ka lang at aminin mo man sa hindi nagtitipid ka lang kaya ayaw mong magbitiw ng cash. Kaya tandaan, maging responsable sa paggamit ng card. Maging mapagkumbaba kapag nasa store at gumagamit nito. Marami kasi akong nakikitang feeling mayaman..halagang P300 pesos credit card pa gagamitin tapos magagalit kapag nadecline. Bakit hindi na lang aminin na namaxout na ung credit card nila sa kagagastos nila.
.
5. Iwasan din ipaalam sa ibang tao ang mga cash advance pin ng mga credit card nyo, o kaya mga personal na impormasyon tungkol sa inyo. May mga sindikatong pilit na kinukuha ang mga personal na impormasyon nyo. Hindi nyo namamalayan nagagamit na pala ang credit card ninyo ng hindi nyo namamalayan. Pagbulaga ng billing statement nyo..ayan ang daming gamit.
.
6. Huwag magipon ng credit card. Marami akong kilala na isang dosena ang credit card. Aanhin mo yan, ipagyayabang mo sa buong mundo na mayaman ka at marami kang credit card…baka ipinagyayabang mo sa buong mundo na utangero/utangera ka..Sapat na siguro ang isa o kaya hanging 3 credit cards para syo.
.
7. Higit sa lahat, magtipid. Sa hirap ng buhay ngayon, matutunan natin mamuhay ng simple. Dati dati wala naman tyong credit card. Kapag walang pangastos magtiis ka. Wag natin laging gawing option ang credit card na gumastos bagkus gawin natin itong reserba sa mga panahon kailangan na natin ito.

Buhay Probinsya

Author: admin // Category: , , , ,
.
Ilang taon na rin ang nakararaan nang ako’y huling umuwi at magbakasyon sa aming probinsya sa Zambales. Eto ako ngayon at muling binisita at inalala ang aking mga magandang alaala dito sa bayan ng Sta. Cruz lalo nung ako ay kabataan pa. Mula sa 6 na oras na byahe galing Maynila, habang binabagtas namin ang daan..ilang kilometro na lang ay malapit na sa aming mumunting bahay. Banaag ko ang malaking pagbabago at pag-unlad ng nasabing lugar. Hindi ko na halos matandaan ang mga palatandaan na malapit na kami sa aming bababaan dahil sa dami ng mga bahay na nakatayo sa paligid. Ang dating puro puno ng saging, at masukal na kagubatan, ngayon napalitan na ng dikit dikit at naguumpugang mga bahay.
.
Minsan naiisip ko, masarap pa rin mamuhay sa probinsya. Sabi nga nila, malayo sa usok, sa polusyon, sa ingay at sa gulo na rin. Bagamat dikit dikit na ang mga bahay dito. Bakas pa rin ang katahimikan ng paligid na animoy lahat ay nahihimbing sa pagtulog kahit katirikan ng araw sa tanghali. Pagbaba pa lang ng sinasakyan naming bus, bumungad na sa amin ang mga tiyahin at mga pinsan ko na minsa’y naging kasama ko sa aking paglaki.Pinagmasdan ko ang lupang minana pa namin sa aming mga lolo at lola. Nakakamiss ng husto ang Lipay. Una ko agad tinanong kung papaano pumunta sa dagat na halos lagi ko nang nakagawiang puntahan kapag nagbabakasyon ako duon.
.
Ilang minuto lamang ay narating na namin ang dagat. Kay sarap ng simoy ng hangin, walang katao tao na animo’y iyong iyo ang lugar. Palatandaan sa akin ang malaking bato sa gitna ng dagat na kung tawagin at Bato ni Barang. Sympre, malilimutan ba naming ang lagi na naming kinagawian pag pumupunta ako sa dagat na iyon… yun ay ang manguha ng mga shells at mga bato. Pagsapit ng hapon, napilitan na kaming umuwi baka kasi kami abutin ng dilim sa daan. Sa lugar na iyon, wala pa rin pagbabago. Ganun pa rin ang lubak lubak na daan at masukal na kagubatan. Sa katahimikan ng lugar, di pa rin maiwasan ng magpipinsan na magkatakutan sa kung anuanong engkanto at aswang ang nagpapakita at nagpaparamdam duon.
.
Pagsapit ng gabi, ang mga inaabangang kong mga pagkaing probinsya ang nadatnan naming sa hapag kainan. Samut saring isdang malalaki, mga gulay na at iba pang kakanin na minsan ko lang makain sa Maynila. Natawa na lang ako ng sabihin sa akin ng pinsan ko na sa bayan daw ay may internet na. Siguro nga kahit sino at kahit saan ay may pagbabago na rin at may konting pagunlad. Ang tao kasi ay patuloy na natututo at patuloy pa rin uunlad. Kayat heto ako nagawa ko pa rin maginternet ang magpost ng entry sa blog ko.
.
Sa 3 araw na pamamalagi ko sa lugar na ito. Marami akong mamimiss. Naisip ko rin na minsan hindi naman talaga kailangan ng tao ang karangyaan para mamuhay. Nasasaatin lang kung papaano tyo mamumuhay ng simple ngunit masaya. Pagbalik ko sa amin sa Maynila, babaunin ko ang isang magandang alaala. Isang simpleng pamumuhay. Isang payapang paglalakbay..at ito ay ang Buhay Probinsya!

2009 Top 10 Pinoy Expat/OFW Blog Award

Author: admin // Category: ,
.
Although Im not a Pinoy Expat nor OFW, I was requested by one of my friends (an OFW) whom I've met here in blogosphere, to plug this campaign and at the same time to give my moral support to this kind of activity and moreso, to salute all my fellow Filipinos who work abroad and who are now considered as mga "Bagong Bayani ng ating Bansa"
.
Any successful endeavor is worth repeating and much more sustained. Especially when it touches and inspires the lives of the people for whom it dedicate its toils, pain, and achievements. Such are the motivations for which the 2009 Top 10 Pinoy Expat/OFW Blog Award (PEBA) is once again being launched online.
.

In its second year, PEBA will recognize Pinoy Expats and OFWs bloggers making a difference in their lives, workplace, community, the Philippines and the world in general.
.
This year the theme is:
.
"Filipinos Abroad – Hope of the Nation, Gift to the World".
.
Cognizant and directly affected by the brunt of global financial crisis, Filipinos continue to anchor their hope and trust to their family members abroad as herald of better news and good tidings. Thus, reinforcing the OFWs and Filipino expats role and image as new heroes and saviors.
.
PEBA also recognizes that Filipinos wherever they are, be it land-based, sea-based or air-based as the case maybe, are shining examples of dedication, diligence, and excellence in almost anything they do. It is not uncommon for them to be praised as assets to companies and organizations contributing to the social and economic well being of their host country. PEBA considers the more than 12m overseas Filipinos scattered abroad as gifts to make this world a better place to live.
.
The award which started last year had a very simple objective. It was created to award bloggers who infuses enthusiasm and inspiration for others to do good and be hopeful in this world of hopelessness. Filipino expats and OFWs with their talents, means, resources and blogs unfailingly served as voice and beacon of hope. Ten top bloggers were identified from around the globe such as the Americas, Europe, Africa and Middle East, and Asia and the Pacific, who, up until these days continue to blog and their commitment re-ignited in contributing change through their own little ways.
.
So for this year with the valuable help of numerous individuals from around the globe, the search is on again. Filipino bloggers and netizens are invited to recognize Pinoy Expats/OFW who tireless blog in making the blogosphere a better space and place for exchange, discussion, and service of the Filipinos and the citizens of the world alike. It is worth knowing and learning those stories of Filipinos overcoming difficulties and challenges. Although it is a reality that not everyone is successful but still their stories are way for others to gain insight from their life lessons and experiences.
.
From May to October 2009 any Filipino blogger can nominate or be nominated except for last year’s top 10 PEBA awardees. Guidelines are available from its official blogsite click here. By December 2009 winners will be announced in a public event in the Philippines whose details are still being prepared and ironed out. Sponsors, supporters and volunteers are very much welcome to make this endeavor a success.
.
Be part of another historic event of Pinoy Expats and OFWs!

Movie Review#2: "Sundo"

Author: admin // Category:
.
Sundo is another Filipino suspense-thriller film from director Topel Lee under GMA Films. The movie stars Robin Padilla, Katrina Halili, Rhian Ramos, Hero Angeles, Mark Bautista and Sunshine Dizon. It was released in the Philippines last March 18, 2009. In Sundo, a retired military operative who goes into seclusion discovers that he has the uncanny ability of seeing ghosts around people who will soon encounter sudden, disastrous deaths. Worried of his brother, Romano’s blind sister Isabel (Rhian Ramos) persuades him to return to Manila with the help of Louella (Sunshine Dizon), Romano’s childhood friend who harbours affection for him.
.
An aspiring actress, Kristina (Katrina Halili), a widow, Lumen (Glydel Mercado), and his son, Eric (Hero Angeles) hitch a ride with Romano, Isabel and Louella along with Louella’s driver, Baste (Mark Bautista). On their way back to the city, the group manages to avoid a fatal accident on the road and their respective “sundo” by a twist of fate. Unaware that their sudden brush with death would cause them the most ruthless battle they will ever come to face. In Romano’s hands lie the fates of his companions as he tries to uncover the mystery behind his premonitions. At the end of the story, everyone was kicked off with their Sundo as all of them died hilariously
.
The movie made me scarred specially with the twist ending but an error with the story-flow made me laughed when Robin Padilla had an action scenes and violent “military-gun” stunts, thus, making it an ordinary action film that he has produced over the past years. For a rating of PG-13 , this film definitely is not suitable for minors. But inspite of that, I still salute the director and scriptwriter for opening my mind that each and everyone of us has an end and has a “Sundo”. Overall rate from 1-10 is “7”.

Philippines Joins Earth Day Today

Author: admin // Category: , ,
The Philippines once again joins more than 180 countries and almost half a billion people across the globe in the celebration of the 39th International Earth Day today Wednesday, April 22, with a theme that focuses on the pressing problems of global warming and climate change.
.
With the international theme, “Green Generation: Towards Low Carbon Development for Survival Against Climate Change,” the Earth Day 2009 aims to educate the people in reducing dependence on fossil fuels by developing carbon-free and renewable sources of energy to avert the effects of global warming.
.
The theme is also in sync with negotiations to lay down a new table of greenhouse gas emission (GHG) cuts for all nations during the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, in December.
.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has adopted a localized theme “Tubig at Lupa, Buhayin; Hangin, Linisin; Batas, Tuparin.”
.
At 9 a.m., Earth Day celebration will be at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City, to be led by the DENR, together with Earth Day Network-Philippines, other non-government organizations and the private sector. DENR Secretary Jose Atienza Jr. is also expected to deliver his State of the Philippine Environment Address at the SM Mall of Asia.
.
A Eucharistic celebration for the Integrity of Creation is scheduled at 10:30 a.m. at the Pandacan Church in Manila. It will be officiated by Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales.
Meanwhile, the Sagip Pasig Movement will conduct a fluvial parade on Pasig River from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. at Plaza Mexico, Intramuros, Manila, to call the attention of Filipinos on the state of Philippine waters.
.
Simultaneous with other activites, SM Malls will hold various activities for children with the goal of making them aware of how to contribute to environmental protection and conservation.
Likewise, the Cultural Center of the Philippines, together with several partners, will host several events for Earth Day.
.
International nature conservation group Haribon Foundation Inc. has set an environmental exhibit featuring biodiversity conservation with story-telling for kids.
.
There will also be a signing of memorandum of agreements between DENR and the city government of Mandaluyong, and between Gawad Kalinga and Shell Philippines.
.
The Youth Environment Advocate Network will also be launched during event. The special day will also be highlighted by the dismantling of illegal fish structures in the Laguna Lake, and cleaning up of Manila Bay.
.
On April 24, President Arroyo, as chairwoman of the Presidential Task Force on Climate Change, will lead a special Ecology Mass at 10 a.m. at the NBN-4 studio in Visayas Avenue, Quezon City, followed by the awarding ceremonies for the Fr. Neri Satur Awards for Environmental Heroism.
.
The President will hand over this year’s awards to individuals, groups, and entities that contributed to the reduction of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions.
.
Some of the awardees include, Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales, Infanta Bishop Julio Labayen, Joey Ayala, Francis Magalona, Timmy Cruz, Richard Gutierrez, Kim Atienza, Angelo Palmones, and Clemente Bautista.
.
As one of the activities for the Earth Day, Malacañang launched last Monday the “Carbon Cutting Coalition versus Climate Change,” a national advocacy movement that will actively participate in cutting carbon emissions in all sectors of society, and will call on all government agencies to help save Mother Earth.
.
“The Coalition was formed to find solutions to the pressing problem of global warming and climate change,” Presidential Adviser on Global Warming and Climate Change Secretary Heherson Alvarez said.
.
He also said a flag, which features the official logo of the coalition, will be the country’s “seal of good housekeeping,” in as far as climate change solutions are concerned.
.
Earth Day was started in 1970 led by former United States Senator Gaylord Nelson.
.
The Earth Day celebration in the Philippines has become an annual event after former President Corazon Aquino signed Proclamation No. 553, proclaiming April 22, 1990 as “Earth Day 1990.”
.
President Arroyo, on April 22, 2007, declared the annual celebration as “Philippines’ Earth Day.”

Don't Send Gift Too Soon!

Author: admin // Category: ,
.
.
Attention-Warning!!! WHEN SENDING GIFTS..DONT MAKE THIS MISTAKE!!!
.
It’s true that everyone like to receive gifts or thoughtful mementos during a new relationship, but BE CAREFUL when using this strategy. It"s DOOMED TO FAIL IF YOU DO IT TOO SOON.
.
It’s very important that before using "Send Gifts" as a Love Tactics, you have created uncertainly about the feelings toward the one you want. Then and only then can you send a small memento of your affection- to revive their hopes.
.
A short note or small gift is good, just be sure its vague and non-committal. The fact that you’re sending it at all shows you care. But never send mementos too early in relationship, or if the person is already over-confident about your feelings toward them. This will only cause them to lose respect for you, or even worse, consider you a fool!!!
.
Remember..passion thrives on insecurity. Before you make their day with a nice token of your affection, be sure that they’re in the throes of doubt about whether you like them or not. Otherwise they may just pity you!. Its better not to use this Love Tactic unless you’re absolutely certain about their state of mind. Don’t guess on this one!
.
It can cost you a relationship!!!

Mga Pilosopiya ng Pinoy sa Pag-ibig

Author: admin // Category: ,
Nakuha ko to sa isang Friendster Bulletin and Facebook notes ng isang kaibigan. Nasisigurado ko na lahat tayo ay makakarelate sa mga punto per punto at alam kong iba sa atin ay naranasan na o kaya ay nararanasan na ang mga sumusunod...
.
.
MGA PILOSOPIYA NG PINOY SA PAG-IBIG
(Some content may not be for minor reading)
.
1."Kung hindi mo mahal ang isang tao,wag ka nang magpakita ng motibo para mahalin ka nya…"
.
2."Huwag mong bitawan ang bagay na hindi mo kayang makitang hawak ng iba."
.
3."Huwag mong hawakan kung alam mong bibitawan mo lang."
.
4."Huwag na huwag kang hahawak kapag alam mong may hawak ka na."
.

Summer Outing at Lagos Del Sol (Part 2)

Author: admin // Category: , , ,
It was a happy and tiring Company's Summer Outing at Lagos del Sol, Cavinti Laguna. Kelangan maagang gumising para hindi maiwan..actually late na nga ako sa call-time. Past 11:00AM na kami nakarating sa resort due to traffic and kasi..naligaw kami! 11:44AM, we arrived at the resort. Sobrang init and medyo gutom na kami..but still we need to run a program..and nagkaroon kami ng mga fun games. Past 12:oonn we had our lunch time. Infairness masarap naman ang mga food that the resort prepared eventhough mga typical lang na pagkain na usual na hinahanda sa house during lunch time. 1:00pm onwards is our free time and our moment to take rest and feel the ambiance of the resort. Malas lang at umulan ng malakas ng mga 3:00pm. Di na namin napansin ang ulan kasi masarap ang halu-halo and lugaw na handa during our snack time. The big event is during dinner time. We were in the pool side that night and after the dinner, an exiting program started in which every group presented their cheer and dance number. Suppose to be umaga un before the game pero kasi ung ibang group eh di pa prepared. Part of the program also is our version of Wowowie's Hephep!!! Hurray!!! Well most of my officemates dont know how to play the game. Kaya lahat ng participants mejo pressured. And the rest of the evening, videoke time and inuman session. Lahat lasing..lahat masaya.. But we are so thankful that inspite of the recession and sobrang pagtitipid..we still made it to come up with a summer outing. Kudos to the recreation committee who gave their effort and time for making this company activity possible. Now i'll give you a preview of the resort and it's landscape.

Movie Review#1: T2 (Tenement 2)

Author: admin // Category:
As a part of an itinerary of a busy yuppie lifestyle, one of my friends suggested me to have a corner for movie/film reviewing. Since most of the yuppies love to watch and want to spend their money in movies. Now I am giving my first review..and that is the T2(Tenement 2),
.
T2 (Tenement 2) is an suspense-horror Star Cinema film starring Diamond Star Maricel Soriano. Members of the cast include Derek Ramsey, Eric Fructuoso, and Mica dela Cruz. The movie was directed by the award-winning horror film director Chito Rono. T2 refers to Tenement 2, one of the buildings in FTI located in Taguig City where some of the scenes were shot. In the movie, Maricel Soriano plays a Save an Orphan Foundation volunteer who brings an orphan home only to discover that the girl comes from a family of “engkantos.”


It was great and fabulous! I have never seen a film like this before. The movie was very close to reality eventhough their fictious event seems to be impossible to happened and yet most of the Filipinos realy believe in "Engkantos". Well the story of engcantos is part of the Filipino culture specially when it comes to story telling of a horror scene. I think the full staff and cast gave their best to research everything about the storry. Though, I was a little bit dumbfounded with how fast the movement of the story went. From Samar, up to the Tagalog islands, to Manila, each of the places connects the story to a deeper sense of belief that Engkantos lived among us. The six minute special effects that Mr. Chito Roño and the people of Roadrunner Network made was as flawless as everyone expected it to be. The golum-like creature scared the hell out of me.Maricel Soriano, did a world-class acting job, as she delivered a superb and strong acting prowess. She gave her character justice, since Clair (the character she played) was quite a tough cookie to break. Apparently, she did stun me.Mica dela Cruz yet was such a charm. I wasn't blinking watching her eyes speak. Her character, Angeli, seemed to be easy, but it wasn't. Kudos for the good acting job in her age. Those eyes could speak what the mouth couldn't.The cast was perfect. The mood was heavily entertaining. Overall rate from 1-10 is "9". The movie has a heart for those who felt they're alone in the world.

Congratulations to Star Cinema and to the full casts and I believe that this film will surely a big hit in the market and will include in the successful lists of Box Office Filipino Films.

Brian Viloria VS. Ulises Solis

Author: admin // Category: ,
Waipahu's Brian Viloria won the IBF light flyweight world championship with a spectacular knockout of Mexico's Ulises Solis today. Viloria won it by dropping Solis in the 11th round with a right hook to the jaw. The championship bout took place before a capacity crowd at Araneta Coliseum in Manila, Philippines.
.
Viloria improved to 25-2, and became a world champion for the second time in his career. He was the WBC light flyweight champion in 2005.
.
"Story book ending," Viloria said. "The last year, five fights in a row in places where people go shopping at, like swap meets ... then coming in here and winning a world title fight, I could never write a better ending than this."
.
The bout was action-packed from start to finish. Viloria landed effective combinations in virtually every round. By the fifth round, Solis had cuts over both his eyes.
.
However, Solis also was able to land several scoring combinations throughout the fight as well, and staggered Viloria with a right hand in the eighth round.
.
Solis, who held the IBF world championship since 2006, dropped to 28-2-2.
.
Solis had two points deducted for landing low blows in the early rounds. He had one point taken away in the third round, and then another point in the fifth.

A Game for Bloggers, Backlink to Me!

Author: admin // Category: ,
Here is a new blog game that we all can play. It is called BackLink To Me. This is a new and fun blog game that we all can play, which will help us increase our backlinks. Backlinks, as we all know, is the foundation to a successful or increased Google PageRank. If you want to increase your Google PageRank, you have to increase the number of backlinks to your site and almost as importantly, your secondary or (deep linked) pages. Backlinks are a collection of other pages on the Net that link back to your site or page within your site. Playing the new blog game, BackLink To Me will help you increase the number of sites that link to your site.

Hello! My Name is Crisiboy. My website is at
JologsNaYuppie.blogspot.com I have a BackLink to TheMissingPen.blogspot.com Here is how the game works:
1. Create a new post and title it, New Blog Game - BackLink To Me.
2. Copy my entire post and paste it into your new post.
3. Change my name to your name.
4. Change my website address to your website address
5.Change the name of the person I have a backlink to my name! (Change JologsNaYuppie.blogspot.com link to the link of this post to make a connected chain of blogs)
6. Link my name back to the url of this post!

By participating in this blog game your site and one deep link page within your site will be a link in a huge chain of blogs that are all connected together. Google bots visit our sites daily (not sure if you knew that). By keeping our chain of links all together in a continuously growing circuit, we gain and increase a united linking strength. I want those Google Bots to visit all of our pages so that we all can have an improved Google PageRank.

If you decide to play the new blog game, please remember to link directly to this post, not my home page. I already have a link to that here on this post.

Please write a quick comment here on this post to let me know you are playing! That way I can keep track.

Have Fun!

Pera o Kaligayahan

Author: admin // Category: , ,
Gusto ko lang ishare sa inyo ang isang nakatutuwang story o artikulo mula sa isang schoolmate. Itago na lang natin sya sa pangalang Arwen. Bagamat mahaba ang story, naway pagtyagaan nyo sanang basahin dahil sinisigurado ko sa inyong kapupulutan ito ng magandang aral sa buhay.Habang binabasa ko ang kanyang kwento ay hindi ko maiwasan mapangiti at naisip ko na minsan ay nagkaroon ng ito ng pagkakahawig sa buhay ko..Sundan natin ang kwento. .
.
*******
.
Nag-away kami ng nanay ko nung isang araw.
.
Ang topic? Pera. Nanghihingi kasi siya nang pambayad sa planstadora, at walang maibigay ang tatay ko, dahil 'di pa daw suweldo. At siyempre, dahil nagtatrabaho na 'ko, sa akin siya humingi. Nagkataon namang 'di pa rin ako sumu-suweldo, at malapit nang maubos ang ni-withdraw kong pera.
.
Kaya kalaunan, nagreklamo siya dahil kulang daw ang binibigay sa kanya para pang-budget sa bahay. Kesyo daw gipit siya sa pamalengke, pang-grocery at pambayad sa kuryente, tubig at iba pang bayarin. Kesyo daw na kami 'yung nagta-trabaho, kaya dapat nagbibigay kami sa bahay. Kesyo kami daw 'yung maraming magpalaba at magpa-plantsa. Kesyo daw dahil mahina ang exports (kung saan nagta-trabaho ang tatay ko), hirap na kami.
.
Medyo uminit na ang ulo ko. Sabi ko, nagbibigay naman ako nang hinihingi niya (ako kasi ang sumasagot ng tubig at panggrocery). Natigil lang kasi ngayon lang ulit ako nagtrabaho. At ako ang sumasagot sa pang-tuition naming magkapatid. Tutal, nakakaluwang naman kami.
.
Alam niyo ba ang hirit ng nanay ko? Kasi daw 'di ako kumuha ng trabahong mas malaki ang kita.
.
Simula nang nagtrabaho ako, hindi naging issue sa akin ang kikitain ko. Actually, ipinangako ko 'yun sa sarili ko. Ayokong maging pera ang dahilan ng pagtanggap ko sa isang trabaho. Mas gugustuhin kong kumuha ng trabaho na magagamit ko ang pinag-aralan ko (at kung mapapabuti pa 'ko nito), at kung may magagawa akong kapaki-pakinabang. Career growth over compensation, kumbaga.
.
Tutal, 'di naman ako nahihirapang maghanap ng trabaho. Salamat sa degree kong mula sa UP at ilan sa mga extra-curricular activities, astig ang dating ng resume ko. Okay din naman ang mga employment exams at interviews ko, kaya madali sa aking makakuha ng trabaho.
.
Naniniwala din kasi akong kasabay ng career growth at prestige na sinasabi ko, darating din 'yung compensation. Sabi nga ng tatay ko, bata pa ako. Experience muna ang habulin ko bago ang suweldo. Handa din naman akong maghintay.
.
Pero mukhang 'yung mga nakapaligid sa'kin, hindi.
.
Noong nag-a-apply ako ng trabaho, marami din namang nag-interview sa'kin. Hanggang ngayong may trabaho na 'ko, may mga tumatawag pa sa'kin. Isa dito ay isang istasyon ng telebisyon kung saan ni-rekomenda ako ng tiyahin ko bilang researcher. Tinatawagan nila ko para mag-exam. Siyempre, paano ko naman sisiputin 'yun, kaya sabi ko 'di ko alam kung kailan ako puwede.
.
Kinukuwento sa'kin ng tiyahin ko kung ano daw yung mga perks and benefits ng trabahong 'yun. Kesyo daw may free make-over, pa-kotse, bonuses, at mga complimentary passes pa sa mga restaurant, pelikula at concerts. At makikita mo pa at magiging ka-close ang mga artista.
.
Meron ding isang kumpanyang bahagi ng industry ng tatay ko na kumuha sa'kin. Dito daw, pag nag-travel ka, pinakamalapit na ang Hong Kong. Puwede ka pa daw makarating ng Amerika. Syempre, malaki din ang suweldo at ang opisina sa Makati. Yuppie talaga ang dating mo. Pero tinanggihan ko lahat 'yun.
.
Ayaw lang siguro iparinig sa'kin ng nanay ko, pero siguro iniisip niyang baliw ako para tanggihan ang lahat nang 'yun at tanggapin ang trabaho ko ngayon—sa isang ahensya ng gobyerno, sa 'di naman kalakihang suweldo at gipit na oras, pero napakalaki naman ng pagkakataon for career growth at prestige, mabilis ang promotion, at instantly marketable pa sa ibang international organizations.
.
Iniisip niya sigurong baliw ako dahil mas pinili ko ang maglingkod sa bayan kaysa ang bulsa ko. Na mas pinili ko ang magkulong sa isang opisinang badbad sa burukrasya kaysa makipagbeso-beso sa mga artista, maging yuppie at kumita ng malaki.
.
Pero anong magagawa ko? Dito ako masaya. Masaya akong paglingkuran ang bayang nagbayad ng tuition ko bilang Iskolar ng Bayan. Masaya ako sa dito sa trabaho kong nabibigyan ako nang kalayaan ng oras at panahon. Masaya ako at nakakatulong ako sa pagbuo ng mga paraan para umunlad ang mga mas hirap at maliliit pa sa akin.
.
Sana lang, dasal ko, maintindihan 'yun ng nanay ko.
.
*******
.
Eto lang ang masasabi ko para sa mga taong ginagawa ang gusto nila. At sa mga taong naglilingkod sa kapwa. Minsan talaga hindi nasusukat ng pera ang anumang kaligayahang nakukuha mo sa isang bagay na gusto mong gawin. Kaya sa mga gumagawa nito..Mabuhay kayo!!!
