Can we be friends?

I got a message from someone in Facebook and he just made my day. Haha. I guess he's trying to be friendly but his way of doing it was just crazy. Well, in respect to him, I blurred his face, deleted some digits of his number and decided not to put his last name. I don't want to feel totally bad with this entry. Haha. See his message...

Just to say hi and wants to be friend with you. Mabait at friendly akung tao. I just hope mabait at honest ka din so we can be good friends. Taga san ka nga pala? Are you working? Do you drink? Smoke? Mahilig kang kumanta o mag videoke? Do you live with your family or you live alone? Pwedeng malaman CP number mo para keep in touch tayo. Ako ito CP number ko for you to feel my sincerity 0909302****. Hope youu answer all the questions with all honesty! Ingat palagi, God bless!


Funny how he's requiring me to be honest in answering all of his questions. In fairness to him, I feel like applying for a job with all of those questions, and most especially the videoke thing. Haha. I didn't respond. I don't really respond to messages with such content. No need for that anymore.

Anyone interested? I can give you his number. And you two can sing videoke, his treat. Haha!!!

Healthy Lifestyle

I am so proud of myself!!! I think I am making a good progress with my choice of having a healthy lifestyle. We went to Festival Mall to do our grocery last night. And all we bought were just healthy food. It was the first time we were so 100% conscious of the ingredients and food contents and we walked away from temptation lanes such as chips, chocolates, processed foods. Waaah, it was tough!!! Haha.

I am very happy with the determination. I am happy with the self-control. And so I am taking advantage of the moment. I just hope this will continue. I really really want to start losing all these excess weight. I'm a believer that it all starts with what you eat. And so I am starting from there.

Healthy lifestyle is not only about healthy food. I guess it's also having a balanced lifestyle. Time with work, time with family and friends, and time with your partner can give you a healthy lifestyle, most especially to your mind, heart and soul. If you're happy, if you're contented, it gives you that boost to maintain a healthy lifestyle. And I guess that's where I get my inspiration.

Thank you Lord!!!

To a continuous healthy lifestyle for me, good morning.

No Work Days

I have been so stuck with all of my work in the office as I am preparing all the agendas of our coming visitors this coming November. And that's the reason why my weekday was all about just work, go home, eat, cuddle with hubbee, sleep, wake up, and a little browse in the internet, eat, cuddle again with hubbee, then go to work again. There's just so many things I want to do in my personal space but I just don't have that luxurious time.

That's why yesterday, I made the most out of it!!!

When I got home from my last day of work for the week, I did not sleep immediately. Hubbee and I watched Piranha which I think the movie was made for straight guys. There's so many boobies in the movie before they got in to the Piranha thing. Haha. It was a film used by the men behind the movie to take advantage with women with big boobies. Boobies exposure!!! Of course, I am being bias with my comment.

I would not comment like this if they have exposed men rather. Haha. Just kidding.

And so, after that, I went to bed and got some rest. I think it was about lunch time when I hit the sack. But of course, I didn't want to spend my saturday just in bed. I set my alarm and woke up at 4:00pm. And as previously written in my other entry, hubbee and I had our Halloween date and watched Paranormal Activity at Alabang Town Center. Our favorite hang-out place in Alabang.

Then went home, and here's what I did the whole night...

1. Watched Imbestigador, Comedy bar and The Bottomline.
2. Fell asleep for 15 minutes, I guess that was my power nap.
3. Watched two movies back to back.
4. Started blogging and posted 4 entries.
5. Spent some time after with Facebook and Twitter.
6. Did some photo editing of old pictures for my Travel Journal.
7. Played Plants vs Zombies since it's Halloween. Haha.

It was already 12:00 in the afternoon of sunday and I was still up. It was a "me" time as hubbee was in wanderland the whole time I was up. Haha. I think he slept after I was done with my blog entries, and after watching tv. So from 4:00pm saturday until 12:00pm sunday, I was up and enjoying my restday. And that did not end from there.

I was still not feeling sleepy!!!!

I still watched ASAP XV, Party Pilipinas and POV5. My sunday afternoon won't be complete without watching those shows. So around 2:00pm, hubbee decided to join me in bed and we had our afternoon sleep already. Why afternoon sleep? Because we woke at 6:00pm to enjoy naman our sunday. Haha.

That is why I don't call my restdays as "rest" days. I just simply call it...

Anyone Interested?

Okay, not to me... (yuck, kapal!!!) Haha.

But to this equipment. It's a Studio 3 all-in-one work-out equipment. I am selling this and if you are interested, or if you know someone who might be interested, just place your comment. It's barely new and unused. I bought it but I was unable to use it because after a few weeks, hubbee and I moved to our place.

I can actually give a special arrangement to anyone who will be interested. Thanks!!!

I Heart TimeZone

I heart TimeZone. It's like a mini-disneyland or a mini-enchanted kingdom where we can be like kids again. I enjoy being there because it makes you feel young. And when you're inside, it's all about enjoying and having a good time. I think most of the malls in the metro have Timezones. Actually, it was my ex Carl who is the only one who successfully introduced me to Timezone. All of my ex's tried to bring me there but I always refuse. Well, thanks to him. Haha!

That was three years ago when I started to get fascinated with TimeZone. And now, everytime hubbee and I go to the mall and have nothing to do, we spend some time playing there. If you haven't visited the place, check it out. It feels good to be kid some times...

Next time you'll visit TimeZone, please, call us. Haha!!!

Congratulations Ash!

Just want to do a shout out for a dear friend who just got promoted. Ash, you know how proud I am and happy for this accomplishment. Finally, after all the sacrifices you took, the effort, the tears you cried, and the determination to get this. It's now in your hands. I may have been very busy lately when you visit me on my desk but I honestly prayed for your promotion the night before your final presentation.

You are not yet perfect but you will pull it through. Stay humble and do well. Good luck on your new endeavor. I will always be here to support you, and for the rest of my Protege and Excalibur babies who wants to excel in their lives. You know that you are not just one of my Proteges, but also my dear friend.


From Hubbee and Mac.

Our Cebu Memories

I remember, it was the same week last year when hubbee and I celebrated our Chapter I in Cebu. It was also our second travel trip and we actually had a Bohol-Bantayan Island-Cebu itinerary which I arranged for five freaking days. That's how O.C. I am when it comes to my travel trips. I make sure I will have a hassle-free adventure and will just enjoy the tour.

It was in Cebu also where we watched our first movie. Wanna know what movie we watched? And how romantic it was? It's actually this movie...

What a romantic first movie together!!! Haha.

Anyways, it was my first time last year in Cebu. Hubbee was born in Cebu so he knows the place. And his family lives there. But he actually grew up in Cagayan De Oro. And yes, he's a pure cebuano. Cebu is like Metro Manila too. They have worse traffic at times too. Haha.

When I arrived in Cebu together with my friends who joined us in our Bohol tour, hubbee picked us at the airport and parted our ways from there. My friends went straight to their pier for the ferry ride to Bohol while hubbee and I went straight to SM Cebu to grab some lunch. I was already hungry that time.

It was an "enjoying" moment already for me while inside the taxi and on our way to SM until something great welcomed me on that mall....

Power was out when we entered the mall. Great!!!

But it didn't stop our hungry stomach. We went to pizza hut for our lunch and went straight to the pier for our ferry ride to Bohol.

So that's the story of my Cebu adventure...

Haha. Just kidding.

After a few days in Bohol, we went back to Cebu but went straight to Bantayan Island and stayed overnight there. On the day of our Chapter I, we were back in the city. And since it's our celebration, we decided to dress up and go to Ayala Cebu. Haha. Konting effect lang namin. The mall was nice. I think it was better than Glorietta here in Makati.

Then we just strolled around and met our good friend Onica (her real name is Monica, we just removed the first letter, and we all liked it, and started calling her with that name. haha). It was her birthday also that's why it was a double celebration. And what a good way to celebrate was to eat. And not just eat, but it was a feast!!!

We went to The Port in Waterfront Hotel, which I highly recommend to those who will visit cebu, because they have a cheap buffet. And their buffet, oh boy, it's amazing. They offer a huge variety of delicious food, cool beer, good service and the buffet is worth the price (P 199 lunch buffet / P 299 dinner buffet).  It is really nice to go there. Oh yeah, heaven!!! And they have this no left-over policy.

Since it was a celebration, and there was a band (Acushla Band), hubbee and Onica had some beers and I rendered two songs, for my contribution for the celebration. Haha. Hubbee, whom by that time didn't know that I can sing. Wala nang hiya hiya. No one knows who I am so the hell I care. Just sang the song and enjoyed the moment. See some videos that hubbee took. I bet he enjoyed it, and admitted that he liked it. Toink. Kilig!!

I'll admit, kinabahan din ako. Haha. And please, don't criticize it!!! =)

We planned to do the Sky Adventure at The Regency Hotel, and experience the Edge Coaster and Sky Walk but time was of the essence for us, we were unable to do it. What we just did after eating was walked around the city. We went inside the nice Waterfront Hotel and did what we do best, picture-taking!!! Haha. We also went to the IT Park where most of the call centers are located, and nice bars and restaurants.

And we called it a night after. We stayed by the way at Gran Tierra Suites, which is a super chic hotel with a super cheap price for their rooms. We got a Double Room which costs P989.00 only for a night. Highly recommended and I will definitely stay there again when we return to Cebu next year of July (we have our tickets booked already, haha).

The next day, we woke up early so he can still bring me to the famous Magellan Cross and Basilica de Sto. Nino. Of course, I wouldn't want to miss that. It completed my cebu trip. We also burned 5 candles each for 5 wishes in our lives. It was romantic. It was sacramental. It was cute.

All in all, I enjoyed my trip in the Queen City of the South, and felt it was "bitin" and had reasons to come back. Which is why next year, we have allotted 6 days for our next Cebu adventure. There's more to discover in that city and will definitely do that next year. Excited na ako!!!

Happy Halloween!!!

I didn't know it was the Halloween season already until our office celebrated it the other night. I guess I'm too busy with my world I almost forgot what's happening out there. It was a fun celebration as all teams decorated their bays and mostly everyone participated. Cool. A freaky night.

Ohhh!!! I just realized why Glee had a Rocky Horror Show. Haha. Stupid me.

I remember last year, when I was still a Supervisor, my team participated in our office halloween contest and we actually won.. the second place! Haha. But for me, I still believe it should have been us. We were the best. Haha. Here's our entry last year...

Aren't they scary???

We belong to the Psychiatric Ward. Freaky! Led by a real-life psycho me. Haha. I wasn't there. I was the one who took the shot. Wonder how I look like?

I have no costume. It's enough already. Haha.

Kidding aside, that entry should have been the champion!!! It was an effort for the preparation, make-up, and of course, photo-editing. Contesting after a year? Haha.

Anyways, Hubbee and I watched Paranormal Activity 2 kanina to celebrate our Halloween date. Halloween date? Is there such a date? Haha.

But the movie was nice. It scared the hell out of me. Well, it was not scary pala. Nakakagulat lang. And in fairness, they did well on that part. And linking the first one to the second installment, nice one. And I bet there's going to be Part 3. I'm so sure!!!

So to everyone out there, who's still alive at this time, Happy Halloween!!!

Book II. Chapter XIII.

In this relationship that we have, we started as McDonald and Jollibee. And that's where McBee was born....

And most of our friends knows that and the reason behind it. But they don't know that sometimes, we are also like Pong Pagong and Kiko Matsing that only the two of us knows why. Haha.

To another month, and another achievement for me (haha), Happy Chapter XIII hubbee. I love you so much!!! And just want you to know that you're the best Kiko Matsing. Hihi.


Twilight. Eclipse. New Moon. Then, Vampires Sucks. And we have the Vampire Diaries. We had Van Helsing too, and also Underworld. And so many movies and shows about Vampires. If you go to Powerbooks, you will also find a lot of books about vampires. And a lot of people getting hooked with vampire stories. Vampires are now a hit again!

Why am I not a fan of Vampire when I was a kid???

That was my question before. But not anymore. Von Viajero is now an official fan of vampire stories. But not all. And not just the typical vampires with fangs, blood spilling, white face, with black/red cape, but with sexy vampires. Haha! And not a fan of the shows/movies I mentioned above but just this series...

I'm a late-bloomer to this show. Everyone was in to this already before I discovered and got hooked on to it. I'm always like that. Like in Facebook, and in Twitter, and Glee and so many things. It takes me time to finally get hooked to something. Like in a theater house, I always fall in line when everyone got inside already.

Oh well, going back, why do I love this show? See below the reasons...

Are they enough to be the reasons to watch this show??? Haha. Stephen Moyer (as Bill Compton), Ryan Kwanten (as Jason Stackhouse), and Alexander Skarsgard (as Eric Northman) are just great and sexy to be vampires. But I am not complaining!!! Haha. This show is just sexy. Nice story and nice cast. And nice sexy scenes. Very provocative! Whew! Towel please... Haha.

It was a blast of sexy scenes for Jason Stackhouse during the first two seasons, and few guys also. But Ryan Kwentan went all the way for his career in this show. And he was cute. And damn sexy. And stupid. Haha! Oh well, he's playing his role very well. But for the entire two seasons, I have been wishing that my ultimate crush Eric Northman would go daring and sexy. But I failed. Until Season 3 came, he finally showed his...

Secret! Go watch it. Haha.

But finally, it was a "kilig" moment. Hubbee saw that. And there was no reaction. Haha. But he spoils me with my addiction. That's why I love him. Haha. And this very shocking scene this season...

Haha. I hope I'm giving you so many reasons to watch this series. Haha. And the show is promising. People are telling me that there will be more exciting scenes coming up. I'm so excited!!! And the new cute sexy guys in this new season are just promising, check them out...

These men are all sexy and they go all sexy on this show. What more can you ask for!!! It's raining men, hallelujah show. Haha. The first guy is Joe Manganiello who plays Alcide Herveaux, a wolf. A sexy wolf. The second guy is Marshall Allman who plays Tommy Mickens, a shape-shifter. So you know what happens when he transforms back to his human form. Naked! Haha!!!

The third guy is Grant Bowler who plays Cooter, who is also a wolf. A bad wolf who stole the girlfriend of Alcide. He has a nice body. And the last guy is Kevin Alejandro who plays Jesus Velasquez, a nurse who gets attracted to the black gay guy in the show LaFayette. Inggit ako! Hmpf! Haha.

Too bad the season is not yet over and the DVD that I bought just had 6 episodes, but actually showing Season 18 but it's not at all. Hmpf! Bitin!!! But anyways, here are more men to look forward on this show...

Who would hate this show!?!?!?! Tell me...

Haha. Go watch it and enjoy, feast with your eyes. Not only it has a great story, but there's more than that. And you know what I mean. Haha.
