Merry Christmas!!

Sorry mga ka-blog, medyo busy lang ako ngayong mga araw na ito kaya hindi ako masyado nakakapag sulat at tambay dito sa blogsphere, pero marami na akong gusto ikuwento. Miss ko na rin ang pag-blog kaya sana, sa mga darating na araw, ay magkaroon ako ng konting panahon.

Ngayon, gusto ko lang kayong batiin ng Maligayang Pasko! Sana mag-enjoy tayong lahat sa piling ng ating mga kapuso, kapamilya, at mga kaibigan. At sana, huwag nating kalimutan ang tunay na diwa ng pasko . . . ang pagkaanak ng Panginoong Hesus upang iligtas tayong lahat.

Lets all have a good one boys and girls! Ingat sa high-blood at gout! hehehe

wala lang masyado

Its been a busy December, as I've previously blogged. Reunions here and there. Going home at 3am. It's fun but it would be more fun if I didn't have work the next day. Not that I'm complaining. Bring on the beer!!

Packing stuff for our house transfer keeps us more busy. I discovered that we have a lot of junk in the house and I had to throw them all away. Mostly old boxes, magazines, brochures, old clothes etc, etc. We packed most of our stuff. We're actually using paper plates this week hehehe. It doesn't matter anyway since Sofie is with my in-laws this week and Jan and I would probably eat out the rest of the week because of our last minute shopping. Our freezer is almost empty which is ok since we'll be going to Baguio this weekend (for 4 days!) and I'll be turning off the ref.


As of yesterday, we've packed 20 boxes and counting. Sheeesh. The good thing is, we won't have to unpack everything when we transfer because we'll be transferring again by June (God willing) to our new home. We visited the property and it is now being constructed. Knowing that you've purchased a property and seeing it being constructed for the first time have are two different feelings. When I saw the structure, I felt . . . happy and excited! It's nice to see where all our hard work is going. Although, we need to work harder for our future, at least we know we're on the right track.

Reminds me of this dialogue I heard from the TV series "Bones" (although I'm not familiar with the characters who said it since I don't watch it regularly):

Man: "Why are there somethings that are harder to do?" (or something to that effect)
Woman: "So you'd know if it was all worth it."

Tomorrow's my big day and I really have nothing planned. Sad thing about it is, I won't be spending my birthday with Sophie. At least we have a long holiday this year (almost 2 weeks, and almost 3 weeks for me) and I'd get to spend time with my family.

Pasensya na kung di ako masyado nakakapag-update sa blog mga ka-blog, baka ako kasi ang ma-KABLAG ni esmi pag nahuli nya ko na nag co-computer at di inaayos yung mga gamit namin e, hehe!

Spending time with old friends do bring back a lot of memories. From the good to the bad. Makes you wish you had a time machine and re-live all of them. We had a good time last Saturday night, me and my buddies. We started off with a few drinks and a lot of reminiscing. We've known each other since we were like 12 or 13 years old, and I can't help but feel proud about where we are now.

See, back in the "old days", we never thought that we'd be in our current "grown up" situations. All we cared about was being together, doing stuff together, with all the laughter and tears (just like what Raymond Lauchenco sang in Bagets), basically, just hanging out. To tell you honestly, some parents in our subdivision wanted their kids to hang out with us because in spite of all the drinking and tambay that we were doing, we were considered (or perceived) to be a good bunch of kids. I remember one mom, who passed away a few years ago, talked to me personally to include her son, who was four years our junior I think, in our gimmicks (even drinking sessions) because she feels that we're a good influence to him. When most of the group were already working (circa 1999), we didn't have much time to spend with each other like we used to and unfortunately, that mom's fear became a reality. Our friend, her son, Ryan was murdered. It was a drug related murder and I can never forget her mom crying while saying to me: "Bam, patay na kaibigan mo . . .". It was painful to everyone of us.

We were also reminiscing about the good times: Gimmicks at PEPS, Padis Point Greenbelt, bowling at Coronado Lane, Arts Venue (which by the way are no longer in existence, talk about growing old) , ligawan blues, the art of introducing one's self to girls, etc, etc.. How we manged to do all these, without celfones and even beepers is way beyond me.

What hit me is that, even if we haven't been seeing each other for a long time, everything seemed like we picked up where we left off. We're still the same people, although more matured, who grew up together. Now, more stuff has been added to our kuwentuhan repertoire: kids, family, buying property, how expensive milk is, how cute and at the same time makulit our kids are, work and a lot more grown-up stuff.

Can't wait for our next inuman session. Kampai uli!

moni oyat!

Sayang, di ako makakasama sa x-mas outing namin ngayon. My officemates are going to Subic today para sa x-mas party namin. Ganun talaga pag maraming inaasikaso. Yung pag lipat ng bahay, pag ayos ng mga gamit, check-up ni misis at kung ano ano pa.

Ok na rin siguro kasi umuwi yung isang barkada ko from Japan and we're planning to have a get together this Saturday. Kung kasama ako sa outing, malamang pagaod na ko sa Sabado at hindi makaksabay sa pag-inom sa barkada kong balik-bayan na parang balon din na bahay-alak.

Medyo matagal-tagal na rin kami na di nagkikita ng mga tropa ko'ng 'to. Si Deki ay kababata ko sa ParaƱaque. Kalaro sa basketball, kainuman, kasama sa ligawan, party, tugtog ng gitara sa kanto, yosimate, etc, etc. Naalala ko nung college pa kami, tuwing araw ng Linggo, umiinom kami sa gitna ng basketball court. Nagsisimula kami ng mga 9pm hanggang mga 1am. Gin ang iniinom namin nun. Chaser ang Sprite. Pulutan namin durog na Sky Flakes sa Century Tuna.

Tatlo kaming umiinom tuwing Linggo: Ako, si Deki at si Marte. Marami kaming barkada, pero tuwing Linggo, kami lang ang parating magkasama. Minsan yung iba sumasma pero madalas kaming tatlo lang. Madalas kami mag gitara at nagkakantahan pag nagiinuman kami sa basketball court. Madals din kaming mag kuwentuhan ng kung ano-ano: aliens, buhay ni Jose Rizal, chicks, mga banda, chicks, kanta, basketball, chicks, gimmick, chicks, buhay kolehyo, chicks at kung ano-ano pa.

Ang tagal na nun. Ngayon, hiwa-hiwalay na kami ng tirahan. Si Deki nasa Japan, Si Marte sa Cavite at ako naman sa Mandaluyong. Si Marte naman ay nakakasama ko paminsan-minsan pero si Deki, huli ko yata syang nakita mga 3 or 4 years ago. Wala nga sya dito sa Pilipinas nung kinsasal ako. Sa wakas, magiinuman uli kami, di nga lang sa basketball court , pero ang importante, magkakasama kami uli.



Babati muna ako: I'd like to thank Shai, a former officemate, for visiting my blog. Sabi ko sa'yo iblo-blog kita e. Hehe! Thanks for visiting!
