Kadiliman para sa LP

Isang litrato na kuha sa Coron, Palawan.  Isa sa pinakamasarap kunan ng litrato ang paglubog ng araw, kung saan nakukunan lang ng camera ang mga objects na natatamaan ng ilaw.  Siguro, nahuli lang ako ng ilang segundo, purong itim na ang litratong ito, malapit na kasing dumilim.

The husband will be gone for 2 weeks starting on Sunday. And my plan is to turn the house from its current dull stage to a festive abode. Went looking at artificial trees last weekend in Ali Mall, but they just seem to "ordinary".

Had some time surfing the web and came across this really cool site and made my creative juices come out... Sharing some rally cool ideas:

10. Higit sa lahat, ay may takot sa Diyos.

Liwanag para sa LP

Ito ay isang "chandelier" sa bahay ng isang mayamang kamag-anak na nakatira sa Antipolo. Bukod sa taglay nitong ganda, ang ganitong klase ng ilaw ay tila nagsisilbing "status symbol" hindi lamang sa PIlipinis pati sa buong mundo. Pero kapag yumaman ako at magkaron ng sarili ko ring mansyon, di siguro ako bibili ng ganito, maganda nga ang dating ng pagkinang ng tila-diamante nitong mga palawit pero di lang siguro ganito ang tipo ko. Maganda lang syang litratuhan.

Magandang umaga sa lahat! Huwebes na naman, ibig sabihin, Biyernes na bukas!!

This is a photo of a chandelier i took in my rich Uncle's house in Antipolo. Aside from its beauty, this kind of lamp somehow serves as a status symbol, not only here in the Philippines but maybe around the world as well. If I get rich and maybe build a mansion of my own, I dont think i'll buy something like this. It may look nice and elegant especially as the light reflects on the diamond-like decors, but I guess this is just not my type. Its nice to shoot though.

Good morning to everyone! Thursday today, meaning its Friday tomorrow! Yahoo!

when i feel like writing

Its a monday and its a wonder how the world moves faster and time seems to double during Mondays. And Im having one like that... but i just needed to take a break and write.  

I think i overspent this weekend. Its just hard to say NO to food and coffee and quality time with the family.  We all drove to Batangas yesterday to deliver a package for the husband, he's still in faraway Mindoro, now on day no. 5.  

Its 2pm here in Manila. and im really sleepy.  My stomach did not let me sleep last night.  I had to rush to the banyo 2am and poop.  And also this morning before i left for work. and then another one at 10am in the office banyo.

Now im all drained.  Its only 2pm but my body feels like its 10pm already... hay..

The question still remains, what caused all these trips to the banyo? Cheers to my Mom and sister who's also spending more time in the banyo today, just like me.

My stress today is up to the brim. Aside from the tons of work i need to finish for my boss, and some other stuffs the "other" bosses make me do, I am all cranky right now.

I realized a few seconds ago, that i get cranky whenever i don't hear from my husband who's in a far away island right now. No replies and his phone's unattended. 

My my my... what can i do? i'm a worry freak!

Just moved to Calma Dorm after the "you definitely can't..." incident. sept 1 was my first day in calma. 

Best TC orientation ever during my time, or maybe even after (??).  Met batch 98 friends, Hanna, Guise, Mikmik, Gladys.

Spent half my sem break in the campus to save our ass from being dismissed.  Failed a subject for the very first time (econ 11)

My life in a picture - Q4-2008

No i will not post a picture with this entry.

I just thought of how worried i get over small and big things. 

I have a picture of my life in my head.  And somethimes i get confused of what's real and what's not.  And when this happens, i get worried because it makes me realize the difference.

This morning, i was awaken by phone rings, rashes, and nemo, and the fact that its Oct. 1 today.

Phone rings - a call i missed.  I owe this person an apology for not meeting my deadline and 4 hours later, im still working on composing my message.

Rashes - taal, after having fever for 3 days (no more today, thank God), has rashes all ove his body.  Upon checking the Net for answers, some says it may or may not be connected to his teething but its definitely connected to the fever for the past days.  Now im still contemplating weather to bring him out to see the doctor.  Still not decided becasue Metro Manila is once again under the spell of "Pablo" the bagyo.

Nemo - well this is actually something not to worry about and made me smile this morning.  Finding Nemo in Disney channel.

Others - its the start of another month, the second Ber month of the year, the first month of the last quarter.  Bills will again start coming and two big-bash events for this quarter means expenses, not to mention the christmas shopping: 

Ada's birthday in Nov - thought of me and her going to HK.  The whole family going there is just too expensive.  Besides, Taal wont remember anything anyway.  Plus wala pang passport si Taal.  Another option is to give Bea a visit in Bora.  For now, Im more of exploring this option because 1) its going to be a family affair, all of us, inc Taal will be going; 2) it'll come out way way cheaper than HK.  I'm all go for this plan but still awaiting the big green signal from the Husband. 

My bday in Nov - nope, no plans at all.  all expenses for the kids na lang.  Although a Center Stage videoke party sounds great... maybe with my brothers and sisters and some close friends.  This will entirely depend on the "wallet balance".

Taal's first bday and baptismal in Dec - last week, i finally came up with a theme for the Dec 21 event for Taal.  "UNO".  The Husband also liked it and actually made an invitation/poster the following day after i discussed it.  So for the UNO party, we already have the general concept, the smaller details will be planned out maybe last week of Nov.  My only worry is that it'll be peak season during those times, i might have to start earlier than planned.

Xmas 2008 - ada will already start working on the gift list.  

My fourth quarter of 2008 (Q4-08)  will be eventful and exciting, I just hope it'll be as I picture it in my mind.
