What's in my bag?

I just realized that I was tagged by Ibyang in her post last July 1. Sorry, tagal to reply.

A. what's in your bag:

red wallet
pocket full of lipglosses
medicine kit
portable hardrive (not in photo)
flash drive (inside small purple bag)

Just last weekend, I was watching this show with Bea where the hosts were showing the "3 fab things" in their bags. Siempre, napaisip din ako. Then after a few minutes, i realized, the fab things inside my bag are not the branded stuff they were showing off but the following:

1. post-it-in-a-pen gadget

its actually a pen with red flags by Post-it. Love it!

2. my blackberry phone

My ever-reliable hand-me-down phone from my boss. It just fits my lifestyle as "the organizer".
I didn't have the internet activated though, to avoid my bill (charged to company) from shooting up. Im online the whole day anyway.

3. WD passport 160g

Cannot post an actual photo becasue the husband, who's in Mindoro for a project, borrowed it. It's alwasy in my bag except for today and until wednesday next week, when he comes back. This is where i save my photos and my downloaded movies and songs. There you go. My top 3 fab things. But there are other stuffs in my bag...

my lip glosses
, i bring a minimum of 2 kinds. in my bag now is my wild-berry skittle flavored lipsmacker from Kei, maybelline fruity jelly lip gloss, VS Big Caramapple Beauty Rush lipgloss also from Kei, VS Very Voluptuous and baby pink lip plumpers. what can i say, i love lip gloss! And it fits quite well in the purple bag i bought from LM (i know, yalk about loyalty!)

My happy together notebook
, which i bring anywhere i go. So i can write anything i want, anytime, anywhere! even my boss' dictated memos are here!

My 4
-g purple kingston flash drive. I usually synchronze this with my working file folder in the office PC.

and of course, it would not be my bag without the mountain of receipts and flyers from real estate, to gadgets to
new food outlets! but it's "neatly" organized in a bag organizer i got for free in National Bookstore.

b. do you bring a personal kit? if yes, what's the content?
yes. my purple small bag with my lip gloss and flash drive.

c. color of bag?

depends on what shoes i wear but this metallic bag i showed is one of my faves.

d. does your bag contents have "adult contents" too?

Nope, where can i get some? :-p

e. do you pack some medicines?

Always have a paracetamol, antacid and something for stoch pains (buscopan)

f. can't live without these things:

wallet, cell, pen and notebook

g. 5 persons i am curious about their bag contents:

Shar, Kara, Bea, Kei, Yan

Dalampasigan para sa LP


Isa sa mga lugar kung saan siguradong makakahanap ng katahimikan. Lahat ng tao ay kinikinita ang panahon ng pakikipag-isa sa karagatan sa pamamagitan ng paglalakad sa mainit at mabuhanging dalampasigan. Ang aking lahok ngayong linggo ay litratong aking kinuha sa isang isal sa Coron, Palawan nuong kami ng aking asawa ay nagpunta dun Abril 2007. Halso buong araw akami nag-pahinga at nagkutkot ng camera sa islang ito ni Mang Lopes. Isang Tausug na minana ang pangangalaga ng isal mula sa sa kanyang mga ninuno. Heto ang ilan sa mga paborito kong litrato nung araw na iyon...

UP @ 100

The 100 years of UP in a 100 peso bill.

Been eying every 100 peso bill that comes my way for this rare collection. And for 2 weeks now, havent had my hands on one. Until last Saturday when Ray exchanged this piece with Kei. This scanned piece is not mine. Just keeping it for my sister (kei) who recently graduated from UPLB (photos here).

I wonder if Bangko Central will also print other State Univ's logo in our money when they celebrate their 100th year of existence? How about the bigger universities like Ateneo and La Salle? Somehow, this makes me really proud to be an Iskolar ng bayan.

But really, aside from the Oble being in our 100 peso, Where can this bring us nowadays? Here are what i can think of. Sadly, just either one of the listed below.

- 2kgs of rice
- one way ticket to Makati from paraƱaque (shuttle fare increased from 50 to 60 pesos
today) plus jeep and/or fx.
- 1/2 kg of meat
- 1/2 kg of chicken
- 3 cans of purefoods corned beef
- 1 can of spam
- 2 packs of Eight o'clock orange mango in 400g packs
- 1 pack of baby wipes at 80 sheets per pack
- 9-roll pack of tissue paper
- 7 end-to-end MRT trips
- 3.3 packs of Marlboro lights ( 50 sticks kung tingi-tingi)
- 2 loaves of gardenia regular pan
- 18 pcs of big pan de manila pandesals

Its sad how our peso power decreased over the years. 20 years ago, i felt like a millionaire with 100 pesos in my wallet. But now, i start to worry if its the only money i have left.

Hirap ng buhay. Agree or disagree?

PGMA's SONA scheduled today. Will she agree or disagree?

the dancers in our family

here's a short video made by my brother. a compilation of some of his dances during his BP days... no i di not ask permission from him to post this. but he posted this in You tube so i guess its ok to share it to the WWW.

And, NO, he is not gay. Here's a video compilation of our "inday" who he's madly inlove with...

I suddenly realized how much i miss watching their shows. :-(

Luntian para sa LP

Para sa Litratong Pinoy ngayong Huwebes, "Luntian".

Kapag sinasabi ang katagang "Luntian", ang unang pumapasok sa isip ko ay puno, halaman, kalikasan...

Isang hapon nuong Setyebre 2006, kung kelan ko napagtanto na hilig ko talaga ang pagkuha ng mga litrato. Palubog na ang araw ng mga oras na yun at ito ang nakuha ng ginagamit kong camera habang pumipili ang aking mga magulang sa tindang mga Bonsai sa Silang, Cavite.

para sa mga litratong tulad nito, dito kayo pumunta.

Minsan talaga naiisip ko na tumigil na lang.
Nakakapagod na.
Nakakasawa na.
Walang katapusang problema.
Mahigit isang oras na byahe tuwing umaga.
Mahabang pila sa gabi
Kasagsagan ng trapik sa Edsa.
At idagdag pa ang pila sa sakayan ng tricycle.

Sakit ng ulo sa buong araw.
Di na mainitindihan ang dahilan sa dami ng pwedeng i-akibat na rason.

Ngayon, isa isa ng dumarating ang kinakailangan kong pag aralan at gawan ng report.
Eh hindi pa nga tapos ang tatlong linggo ko nang tina-trabahong mga numero.


La lang. Nakakapagod lang....

My Very First Amazon buy!

I got my very first shipping confirmation for my very first amazon purchase online... But of course, these are not for my personal use but for our office. We have been wanting to buy these books. In fact, we already ordered one almost a year and a half ago, but to no avail. But now, my package, yes, a packaged for me, will arrive this Friday. Yey!

P.S.The shipping costs more than the books, almost 200% more.. sheesh!

Number One fan and critic

I believe in my husband's creativity. In fact i am his number one fan. But somehow i'm also one his worst critics (among others, including his siblings and niece). Here are some of his most recent monochromes. The natural lighting in our room during sunset is just perfect for photo ops such as this...

I think this is one of his best set of taal's photos. A

And of course, he also had to take a picture of the Ate and the Mommy..

Headache up to the national level

Due to the stomping, throbbing, and kick-ass pain i was having last weekend, i had to do my own research and tried to find out possible causes of the pain i was having. I chanced upon this website and for some weird reason my headache started to mellow. I was actually amazed that such a group existed!

Their complete headache chart is something all of us should post on our boards. It enumerates 21 different types of headaches with corresponding symptoms, factors, treatment and prevention.

They also have this tools for sufferers where one can read headache FAQs and even take a headache quiz! San ka pa!?

Check it out yourselves and be amazed.

Here's a sneak peak of their headache chart:

The "almost " whole day stay in Tokyo Health link last Wednesday lead me to this brochure from Pfizer. Ada got almost 3 pcs, so she can give away daw to other smokers. And since then, every time i light up a cigarette, she reminds of the famous Marlboro reminder "Smoking Kills". I seriously considered quitting na. very soon ada...very very soon. Not that Im a heavy smoker, My max is 6 sticks a day and that's it. Pero for the kids' sake, Im quitting, but not just now.

Balingkinitan pasa sa Litratong Pinoy

Responsibilidad ng isang propesyonal na mananayaw na panatilihaing "balingkinitan" ang kanilang mga katawan. Aba, mahirap yatang sumayaw at magtatatalon kung kabigatan ang kanilang katawan...

Ang aking kontribusyon sa Litratong Pinoy ngayong linggo... My "dancings woods".

Inaalay ko din ang litratong ito sa aking Nanay, dahil hindi nya na makita ang pares ng mga piguring ito....

a tribute

Since I am not "equipped" to give her the gift I want to give, I will just have to give her something that won't need any "withdrawals" whatsoever...

To you, dear sister, who most of the time is harassed mentally and physically yet still get to smile and fight.

To you, dear sister, who loves junk foods and instant mamis.

To you dear sister, who denies using our things when it gets lost or misplaced.

To you dear sister, who despite the pain you've been thru still stands tall (or short :p)

happy birthday!! May you live forever! (or not, mwah mwah!!)

click and get paid

I have been seriously scanning thru websites offering payment for blogging. I came across this "click to get paid" site clixsense. Check it out ma' friends! Baka yumaman tayong lahat dito!!!!


Tatak PInoy para sa LP

Salamat kay Ibyang sa pagpapakilala sa akin ng LP.

Naisipan kong lumahok sa lingguhang paligsaha ng Litratong Pinoy. Hindi upang magwagi kundi para maibahagi ang libi-libong litrato na kinuha ko ng mga nakaraang taon na halos 30% ng espasyo ng hard drive ko ay kinakain (250gig).

Ang tema ngayong linggo ay "Tatak Pinoy".

Ang simbahan sa quiapo ay isa sa pinakakilalang simbahan sa Pilipinas. Dito matatagpuan ang pinaniniwalaang mirakulong Nazareno. Isa rin ito sa pinakamatandang simbahan sa Pilipinas na itinayo nuong 1582.

the chain of events

Kanina, naisip ko na hindi magyosi ngayong araw,

naisip ko 'to habang nakapikit at bahagyang natutulog sa byahe papuntang Makati

Nakapikit ako at bahagyang tulog dahil inaantok ako, isang bagay na hindi ordinaryo. hindi ako natutulog sa byahe.

Inaantok ako dahil napuyat kami kagabi...

Napuyat kami dahil hindi makatulog si Taal...

Hindi makatulog si Taal, dahil hindi sya makahinga

Hirap syang humingi dahil barado ang ilong nya...

Barado ang ilong nya dahil may sipon sya...

Sinipon sya dahil nahawa sya kay Gykgyk...

Sinipon si Gykgyk dahil....??

Hindi ko na alam kung madurugtungan pa ito...
