For the love of Chris Cornell, watch it till the very end and bash all these AI judges for being so stupid and ignorant. Because yes, Chris Cornell already had this recorded in his Carry On album released sometime last year. GGRRR!

besides waiting for another four hours for my eventual flight was not really that bad especially after having gone through several delayed flights from cebu pac already hehe.
I wasn't that a bit worried, I still didn't have any word about our new budget being approved yet thus I didn't think there's anything urgent to be done in the office anyway.
and I had my mp3s and my eee pc with me. and what more, my friend, Sugar, just saved a copy of the movie Love in the Time of Cholera in my pc. =)
I was more than excited to just sit and watch it first.
I know I have a copy of the book somewhere among my college textbooks but I don't really remember reading it. must be that Marquez's books were mostly thick and with minute letters at that.
ahihihi...i've to say I was a bit kilig as I watched the movie, I was almost oblivious that i was enjoying amidst the busy CDO airport with passengers from different flights arriving and leaving.
the film is just so rich with visuals it almost looks like some Spanish painting come alive. Florentino's prose and poetry were so moving i'd almost feel the tears well up if only for the crowd around me.
for more than 2 hours i've been held captive by my 7 inch screen. i'm wondering how most wonderful this must be to be viewed on the widescreen.
and the ultra sensual shakira who's singing most of the OST adds up to its over all passion and depth.
i've to admit I kinda left the home early this morning with quite a heavy heart. I haven't really accomplished anything and there were just more issues and concerns faced that I felt I didn't really had any vacation at all. the only consolation I have is that Xan got well finally. he was really sick when I arrived and it was just too great a relief that his cough and colds were gone, he was running around everywhere again and has been eating left and right as if wanting to just make up for all those missed meals.
nothing matters now really but seeing Xan up and about once more. let the adults take care of themselves and their issues. Xan is ok. that's all that matters. =)
our family has had a lot of better/happier days anyway. we will see brighter sunshinier times in the days to come. i'll just have to focus on the yellows and the oranges instead of gloomy grays and dark ones. muchos gracias.

i've been having internet connection woes lately...it's been on and off for the past few days like some freakin disco lights that i'd feel like turning on the music to full volume and ordering for some ice cold beer.
I could get online for a while before it starts puttering and sending out a message of “request timed out” for a few minutes stretching up to a couple of hours. and eventually dying on me.
dang, no wonder they call it smart bro-ken now.
it's really hard when you've become so used to having high speed internet in the metro. too bad i can't even opt for a dial-up connection here as even our phone line doesn't have any access. i could only resort to connecting with my cellphone usb cable during desperate measures. but then again i left my cable wire back in manila. *toink*
with the advancement of high technology these days, i believe it's safe for me to just hope for an entirely wi-fi free country right?
haay, i feel like collapsing and frothing in the mouth anytime soon.

we might have been too pasaway the past days that we really wanted to at least make up for it by having a good enough celebration for this year with my immediate family, nevermind if it's a holy thursday and our food choices are limited.
here's to hoping that she would still feel loved and is greatly important to us all.
happy birthday, mama dearest!
magkamukha kami, di ba? di ba??? =)

taxi fares from cdo airport to the bus station and vice versa has always been my major complain. i do go home 3-4 or even more times a year and each time they'd charge me about 300-400 each trip. wow, that's even more than my fare from katip to the manila airport.
and each time i'd tell them i'm but a student and i don't really have that much cash with me so i'd bargain for at least 250.
this morning, upon arriving at the cdo airport, i approached a police officer before i hailed a cab and asked him where i could get metered cabs, he directed me to the ones queueing nearby, he then gave me a sheet of paper where i could input infos/complaints in case the driver will overcharge me.
i sort of waved my paper to the driver and asked him to use his meter which he did. while on the way though he asked me if i could give him dagdag for the fare and started whining about how gas prices are so expensive, he had to pay airport fees, etc...i lacked sleep, my head was throbbing and i don't really wanna hear anyone else complaining other than me, right? he asked for at least 300. i just said i'll see about that.
upon arriving at my destination the meter only read 140...i gave him 200. weeeh!
i got his number though, it's 09104772297. told him bawi ako when i get back na lang .do text him in case you're in cdo and would need a lift to wherever. he even offered to take me to iligan for 1500 kaso duh wala naman akong bitbit na mabigat na bag. besides wala akong 1500!! hehe...
at least, i'm home with Xan now!

my friend, ron has been asking me to try out the gym again as it's but a short walk from where i'm staying. i told him i'll just jog instead libre pa. besides he said that there's really not much hot, young men to ogle on anyway so wag na lang siguro. but then again i haven't really jogged for a long time either. i believe i got so tired after our KL-Sg but of course that was more than a month ago! i really don't have any excuse now except that i had a tooth extracted a week ago and had my period recently...so tamad noh, andaming excuses. i just know that i have to lift my butt up and exercise once more especially since i've been eating nothing but junk food lately.
was supposed to have dinner with ron at cravings today, i've been thinking and salivating on the all green salad i could have at the salad bar and maybe get a healthier herbed chicken meal. kaso na-injan ako ni ron waaah! or maybe i forgot to commit that i could make it later and i can't text him as wala akong load pala. i don't wanna go out just to buy a call card, i don't wanna call my mom naman just for pasaload hehe...oh well, i hope he's just fine wherever he is. so here i am having pancit canton and tuna omelet and crackers for dinner instead. ang healthy no?!
i haven't been out and walking lately save for those times when friends would call me and we'd meet up for dinner and drinks. kaso those are never healthy especially since i've gotten this weird cravings for sweet stuff with my beer like pancakes and bibingkas and chocolates and turons! yeah, only in the Pilipins, only with me!
and here i am complaining about all the fat that wouldn't want to leave my butt and has been happily clinging on to my waistline. and i even have the sheer audacity to browse on multiply sites that ply all these yummy looking swimsuits. yummy, the swimsuits yeah, just take me out off it wahehe...
but then again where's the harm in eyeing on all of them and working out at least in my mind huh! shouldn't that be enough to prepare me for summer?
speaking of...i will have my kinda early vacation next week for the holy week! i will be going home again! home to my mom's kitchen. eyng! just the thought of staying a week long at our home with my mom cooking every now and then is bliss but oh..it let's my sight out of those yummy bikinis once more. awww...and yes, even if it's the holy week, there's no such thing as fasting in our home. there won't be any meat dish but we'll have fish and veggies, and suman, and biko and ginataan instead haha! oh well, i can always compensate it by running around and/or carrying Xan instead yey!
oh well, i'm never a Juday fan, but i'm thinking though if maybe, just maybe i could try out that product she's currently endorsing. *sigh*
