The girl next door.

I am amused with the girl next door. She’s been dropping hints about wanting to see me and her ways of doing so are such fun when you think about it. Can you imagine how she would ‘accidentally’ bumped into me in the elevator. She also has ‘extra’ food in her place all the time, thus the need to give me some of it. One time, I saw cheap sexy panties on my doorstep. I knew it was hers!

I know that I have to talk to her one of these days. I don’t really like having someone ‘stalk’ me or be infatuated with me that way. One of these days, when I am not too busy anymore, I will talk to her and tell her in not so many words that I would love to be friends. Nothing more.

Turning Japanese!

sushi

I’ve been eating a lot of sushi at work lately. It’s the fastest meal that I can eat when I am busy at work and I am very busy every single day for the past six weeks!

I am handling a sensitive project at work and my boss bluntly told me that my promotion is heavily reliant on the success of the project. Can you imagine the pressure it brought to my life? But I am doing my best and the process is truly exciting for me.

I just wish I won’t turn Japanese one of these days from eating too much sushi. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Team Jude!

tent love

My cousins called me up to tell me that they needed my vote. I laughed, thinking they were just kidding. But they were dead serious. They wanted to give Pia, our female cousin who almost broke up with her boyfriend of three years, an advice. We all wanted her to get back with Jude (she did, thank goodness!) but another guy was courting her.

He gave her an Audix from musicians friend. She was impressed with his efforts. But we all wanted her to get back with Jude so we used our convincing powers to do.

Let me just say that Jude is a good person and we’ve seen how much he loves our cousin. A simple misunderstanding should not be a reason for their relationship to end.

We are team Jude!

March is here.

And I am hoping that this month will be really good to me.
I’ve have so many things planned for this month not only for work but also for my personal life.
I haven’t seen my friends in a long while due to work.
I am also absent in most special occasions in the family for the past month.
So I am planning to make up for all of it.

March, please be good to me!

Late Valentine’s Day gifts.

I am checking out jewelry here so that I can get two sets for the very special women in my life: my mom and my sister. I haven’t gotten them anything for Valentine’s Day. I was stuck in the office for three days brainstorming with the whole marketing team about a product launch that will take place this coming 1st week of March. As a result, I forgot that it was Valentine’s Day and I didn’t even call them up to greet them.

So I am getting them gifts first before I show up and apologize for the lapse. I am sure they will understand. They know how dedicated I am to my job that most of the time I forget important dates especially when I am focused on a very important task.

Made her choice

I am proud to tell you this story about my friend Shelly who made a choice between a life of easy work and a life of a hardworking nurse. She chose the latter.

You see, Shelly comes from a very rich family. She is being given a position in her father’s company to be one of his assistants. Basically, she will schedule appointments for her dad, will accompany him to some meetings with clients, and just look like the boss’ daughter. That’s it! Pretty easy, if you ask me. But Shelly’s always wanted to become a medical volunteer. She may not have the brains to become a doctor but she has the patience to become a medical assistant. She talked to her dad and asked him to give her the liberty to do what she’s always wanted to do, which is to go do charitable works.

How many people do you know who will choose to throw away an easy life to do good deeds all over the world?

More on blogging…

I changed this blog’s theme in preparation for 2014. You know I have this goal for next year: I want to do better in blogging. I realized that I have so much to thank for in this “past time” I developed over the years. I keep taking blogging for granted because I am more focused on my nine to five. That’s just fine, of course, but I also have to keep in mind that blogging is giving me not only a side income but also an outlet to vent my frustrations in life.

I want to become more active on blogging. I plan to post something about technology at least once a week. I also plan to post something about work at least once a week as well. And another on automobiles. I love cars! I used to be such a machine enthusiast with my cousin Pete. It took a backseat because, again, I focused more on work. I want to bring that back here in my blog.

Expect more good things to come in this blog of mine. It will live up to its title of The Dailies because I will also post popular news stories here.

Nagging cousin Rick

I have a stubborn cousin, more than usual, and his name is Rick. I am sure you’ve read about him here a number of times now. He used to live with me in my flat but when he got over his heartache, he moved out and got his own place. He is still furnishing it, a year after he moved in, and when he needs help with the electrical and stuff like that, he nags like a shrew!

Just last night he called me up to ask how he can save on ampeg amplifier which he wants to put in his balcony, for reasons only he can understand. We argued for a few minutes until he finally realized I was at work and not authorized to talk that long on the phone.

Ugh!
