career seminar

this morning, we attended CarSem (career seminar) for the graduating students. with the theme: "The Thomasian Professional: Making a Difference in the World of Work". there were two speakers, a graduate of food tech that is now a plant supervisor, and the other one who graduated from the college of commerce and is now a HR manager. they were good speakers and i learned a lot from the talk. i realized that food technology is a very interesting and promising course. : ) it is in demand in the industry. (i hope i'll get a job as soon as i graduate haha!) the speaker also said that companies hire for attitude, then train for skill. and that we should make our profession our passion. they also gave tips on how to prepare for a job interview. after the talk, we were given a cream roll and a small chocolate cake from gardenia. : ) yung isang speaker dun nag wwork hehe.

happy birthday grace!

happy birthday grace! : )

thank you for all the good times.. and for making the bad times bearable. i'll miss you when you go to china! but i know you'll come home before my birthday : ) i wish you all the best! have a good one : ) and always remember that i'll always be here for you. like you've always been there for me. here's to more years of success, happiness, love, and good health! much love. : )

i went for an ultrasound yesterday morning before class. at first i was scared.. but when the radiologist came, she told me that i won't feel anything. kwento lang siya ng kwento. she asked me what course i was taking up and i told her food technology. sabi niya.. "ah maganda yan.. sabi ko sa anak ko yan din kunin e. kasi lahat ng tao kumakain. so... magaling ka mag luto?" i thought she knew that food techs are not cooks. haha. oh well. because of my love for food, i chose food tech to be my course for college, only to find out that we will be studying chemistry.. and math. but then, no regrets. : ) like what the doctor said, lahat ng tao kumakain. so kami yung last na mawawalan ng work haha.

computer class yesterday was soo boring. for 5 hours in front of the monitor, i felt dizzy and sleepy and hungry afterwards. i don't even know why we have to study HTML. to do a website?

when i got home from church last night, i cannot access the net! grr. kaya late post.

came home early today. : ) i dropped by at Hope to request a copy of my form 137. ang dami ng nag bago.. so many new faces. new teachers. the office was also repainted and our old high school building is replaced with a new one (still under construction). i can still remember when we were in grade school, we'd use our skirts and slide by the stairs. rush to the canteen once the bell rings. see high school girls wash faces with pond's during lunch break (kaya gumaya kami para cool daw). our handmime days during high school.. the late night practices, and the performances at the philam auditorium and manila hotel and during other special occasions at school. buti nalang yung guard yun padin haha.

on my way home, i saw nathaniel. natz is my batch mate and i was so surpprised that he was so thin already. his flabs disappeared haha. panu kaya siya nag diet? : )

happy birthday guama! thanks for the foods and hizon's cake you sent today : ) i wish you happiness and good health. : )

we baked squash muffins today during our mass pro. 392 muffins to be exact, haha. dami. bebenta yun tomorrow at the bacoor trade fair if im not mistaken. basta sa bacoor. our professor's hometown and they're having something so he wants our products to join the fair. other group's products are squash macaroons, squash pandesal, and squash loaf. gusto niya talaga squash.. i don't know why. but in all fairness, our muffins are yummy. : ) i personally don't like squash. but i really liked what we baked. : ) i thought today's our last mass pro. till next week pa pala.

i was called by the office while i was at the lab. i lack form 137a. they gave me a letter that i have to bring to my former school so they can provide me one. transcript of records ata yun nung high school. or else, i won't be able to graduate. haay.. oh well. its been a looong time since i visited my school. i'll try to go tomorrow if i have time.

my class starts at 1pm and i'll be having an ultrasound in the morning. im scared. =\ alam ko di masakit, im just afraid of the results. but before you make any hasty assumptions, id like to interrupt and say.. NO, im not pregnant. haha. madaming pwedeng i-ultrasound. ok? mga tao kasi ngayon.. basta yun.

what did i do during the weekend?

-classes in the morning
-watched bangkok dangerous with daniel
-ate at chef d' angelo

-bought some dvds
-went to cartimar. now i want a dog.. haha. : )
-dinner at banawe

so there.. im going to sleep na. goodnight everyone. and please say a little prayer for me.. that all goes well tomorrow with the ultrasound. thank you. : )

i ordered a dress online and it will be delivered tomorrow. im excited. : )

yoga this morning. it was embarrassing but it feels good. need some more practice though. my body aches when i got home. did the groceries after lunch. then answered our online exam for PE (may written exam na pala ang PE ngayon). 100 kami ni jen haha!

im currently reading The Kite Runner. the one i bought from the book fair last sunday.
and now as i type, its raining so hard again. sarap matulog, lamig. : )


i'd like to say THANK YOU for the things money CANNOT buy:
-my family
-time with people i love
-a hug
-heartfelt laughter
-a good night's sleep
-a text or an email from a friend you haven't heard from in so long
-the cool weather
-inspiring messages
-a good appetite
-having HOPE
-saying ILOVEYOU, IMISSYOU, and THANK YOU, and meaning it
-a good cup of coffee

there's always more to be thankful for, and less to complain about.

sometimes i just get caught up in what i DON'T have, that i forget about what i have.

death isn't sad. the sad thing is: most people don't live at all. life is not about imagined perfection or victory; it is about love. love is a warrior's sword; whenever it cuts, it gives life, not death.

find the love in what you do.

--from the movie, "peaceful warrior"

am going to school in a few. hope to finish earlier than 7pm today. : )

thank you jen for the pesto dip! yummy : )

You are so faithful

i was so tired when i got home yesterday. it was already past 6 and i still have to tutor my cousin. after dinner i went to church for bible study. it became a routine for me to go to church every sunday, tuesday, thursday, and saturday. sometimes if i have time, i'll also attend during mondays, wednesdays, and fridays. that is, if im not lazy .

but last night was different.

there was one brother sharing his testimony about the trials he's going through.. on how sad he is because of his angkong's condition. this brother is my friend. he told me recently that he's not okay. spiritually, emotionally.. even on his studies. his grandfather has been diagnosed having 4th stage cancer. while listening to him speak in front, i feel so sad for him. then suddenly i saw myself.. im just like him. im sad most of the time and i feel lost.. weak. i can deceive people and tell them im happy. put on a mask. but sometimes, the sweetest smiles mask the saddest face. then the Lord used this song to speak to me.

You Are So Faithful

Bob Fitts

Like the sun that rises everyday

You are so faithful, Lord you are faithful

Like the rain that You send and every breath that I breathe

You are so faithful, Lord

Like a rose that comes alive every spring

You are so faithful, Lord you are faithful

Like the life that You give to every beat of my heart

You are so faithful, Lord

I see a cross and the price You had to pay

I see the blood that washes my sins away

And in the midst of a storm through the wind and the waves

You'll still be faithful You'll still be faithful

And when the stars refuse to shine and time is no more

You'll still be faithful You'll still be faithful

My Lord

i don't know what to say.. God sees everything. many times, i don't feel like sharing my problems to Him. i don't feel like doing things for Him because i feel so caught up with the things i still need to do for myself. but He showed me that even if i forget the vows i have made to the Lord, but He will never forget. and He will be the One to fulfill it in His time. : ) im not perfect, i screw up.. a lot. but He will be the one to make it. He'll see me through. because He is faithful. : )

come again another day.

the crazy rains are flooding the whole metro.

its literally like the floodgates of heaven opened and poured out their entire supply of water for months for us.

Monday, September 8, 2008

this past few days, when i have nothing to do, i just read food blogs (if that's what they call it). most of these people post reviews of restos they tried. and they also include contact numbers and the menu, haha. i listed all those which i wanna try.. halos lahat malayo. i wish i lived somewhere far.. hehe. far from this busy (and noisy) city.

during saturday, after my class, i went to RP with daniel to buy his laptop bag. then we bought some breads from breadtalk. my favorite curry naan. : ) di ko alam anu tawag nung sakanya hehe. i played the piano sunday morning for the meeting at mezz.. para yun sa mga newly baptized so mas madaming kids. it went well. medyo casual lang dun. just like sunday school.. so mas di nakakaantok unlike the one in the 4th floor, haha. yesterday was also Ama's birthday. we had dinner at asian dragon in malate. yum cake from hizon's! : ) medyo late na kami nakauwi and i was so sleepy already.

we did mass pro at school today. buti maaga kami natapos mag benta. but late padin aku nakauwi kasi traffic. and while im typing this, super lakas padin ng ulan. : ( hay.

goodnight everyone.

..whatever happens, everything's gonna be alright.

PE class

adapted PE - this course is a special class for the PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED, designed for students with DISABILITIES who may not safely or successfully engage in unrestricted participation in the rigorous activities of general physical education programs.

yes, jen and me are enrolled in this course this sem. back to PE class today after being absent for two weeks. wala kaming kapansanan.. wala lang natirang ibang PE class kaya ito nalang hehe. but its fun. we have activities every meeting. and for today, kite making! ang hirap pala gumawa ng kite. next week yung evaluation ng ginawa namin.. hopefully lumipad yung amin. or else, hindi din daw lilipad grade namin sabi ni ma'am. haha. before, our activities were shirt painting, accessories making, and the rest, i forgot already. minsan may lecture din. see.. di kami napapagod sa PE. hehe.

after class, our group discussed our topic. candle making. two weeks nalang turn na namin. then finals na.. how time flies.

ms brightside

most people just don't get it. or maybe im the one not getting it. life and its complexities..

where do we draw the line between being pessimistic and realistic? where do we draw the line between being stupid and being in love? where do we draw the line between enjoying life and getting too much out of life? where do we draw the line between being happy and being blind? where do we draw the line? how do we draw the line?

im young and reckless.. even crazy. i don't even know if there is such line. but whoever said what you don't know won't hurt you, just didn't think before he spoke. because it hurts not knowing. it leaves an aching gut feeling within.. and that's when we try to search for answers.

and yet, being the young, reckless, and crazy person that i am, i couldn't possibly find THE ANSWERS. maybe im not supposed to find THEM. maybe im just supposed to wander through life not knowing. maybe we're not suppose to know what's there. but what is THERE really? another deafening silence.

im not used to questioning what life has to offer, or what is there at the end of the rainbow. maybe it's a pot of gold, maybe it's nothing. maybe we just want to hold on to the thought of that pot of gold to keep us going. but whatever keeps us from holding on to that thought.. its really damn good.

gold or no gold.. we live, learn, and love to the fullest.

at the end of the day, there are some things better left unknown.

the personality test

saw this personality test from candy's blog and i tried it. : ) my results:

Good-natured Realist (GR)

Good-natured Realists are warm-hearted, helpful personalities. They do their work conscientiously and have a pronounced organising talent. They often feel they are committed to traditional values. The family in particular is extremely important to Good-natured Realists. Their greatest pleasure is making themselves useful and taking care of other people. But they do not like pushing themselves to the fore; they prefer to fulfil their tasks out of the limelight. Good-natured Realists are real workaholics; they are very reliable and nothing is too much for them when it is a question of completing a project. Thoroughness, conscientiousness and sense of duty are their strongest points. They prefer established and familiar situations to new and unknown situations.Good-natured Realist

In dealing with others, Good-natured Realists are considerate and obliging; they are always happy to put aside their own requirements in the interest of their family and friends. Their home is mostly very well cared-for, cosy and tidy. Their perfectionism on the one hand and their aversion to delegating tasks on the other hand often lead to them taking on too much both professionally and privately. They cannot stand discord; conflicts make them very unhappy. One could almost describe them as being harmony-addicted - and this sometimes leads them to strongly neglecting themselves and their own wishes because they are unable to bring themselves to put up a fight.

Good-natured Realists dream of a stable and trusting relationship for life. Marriage and family are very important to them. They take care of their partner attentively and lovingly and put up with a lot for a harmonious relationship. They are also loyal and reliable friends. However, they can be very hurt if their interpersonal commitment is taken for granted for too long.

introverted, practical, emotional, planning, tradition-conscious, good-natured, self-sacrificing, caring, devoted, friendly, loyal, considerate, reliable, conscientious, loving, quiet, reserved, modest, helpful, objective, hard-working, warm-hearted, communicative, painstaking, altruistic

im craving for sbarro's baked zitti, white pizza, and raspberry iced tea. *sigh*
