from the dream king

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”

- Neil Gaiman

so what has been happening:

-- im frustrated that i didnt see Gaiman last sunday -- blame my fear of getting swept away if ever the storm would suddenly drop by manila and i also had to attend an event that i just couldnt say no to, else my head will be served on a platter. hehehe! i love you, annie. it was great seeing you again.

-- im gald i was able to change my blog template. i still have to tweek at it but its all good at least im getting somewhere.

-- i havent started my christmas shopping. yet. i have no idea what to get people

-- i was thinking... sometimes people you think you know surprises you by pulling a stunt that you think they are not capable of. like using their position or power as leverage. tsk. sad that they change just because of some little power that was given to them TEMPORARILY.

-- "just because you rank higher than me, doesnt make you better than me." - AMEN.

-- i miss someone who works in san juan and lives in kamias.

-- i want some good coffee.

-- christmas came early. absolute sandman vols. 1 & 2 is mine. hahahaah! *pictures to follow* will open it on tabs' bday.

-- looking forward to saturday...

nicked from kitty:

You Are Likely a Second Born

At your darkest moments, you feel inadequate.
At work and school. you do best when you're evaluating.
When you love someone, you offer them constructive criticism.

In friendship, you tend to give a lot of feedback - positive and negative.
Your ideal careers are: accounting, banking, art, carpentry, decorating, teaching, and writing novels.
You will leave your mark on the world with art and creative projects.

just because the 2 day vacation is hours away and my boss is nowhere to be seen i decided to work on this. hahaha.

my desktop usually gives the viewer what movie just i saw or a book im lusting on or what i feel at the moment. ages ago, i used to plaster a current crush's face (erhm, orlando bloom) across my desktop. hahhaa.

i try to make my top neat. but when im get swamped with work, it gets crazy. O_o

now, im lusting at the Absolute Sandman, hence Death's appearance on my pc plus i like the artwork.

im tagging tabs, kitty, 3sha, rache and you.


1.Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.

2.Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of Icons, things like that.

3.Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.

wake up.

and i have to heed it.
broke or not broke.
hehehe. sabi ko nga "i. will. not. be. denied."


I was able to read about this on m's time magazine. i have to say very interesting.
tho' im doubting if this will be shown here, you know mtrcb. i hope the local piratas will get a copy and spread the love. hehehe.
Ang Lee's latest directorial outing, Lust, Caution, is an intricate WWII-based story following one girl's adventure into the risky world of espionage and assassination. Her and a group of school friends discover a man in the city of Hong Kong who is assisting the Japanese in infiltrating their country and government. Therefore in an act of nationalism they attempt to use their acting skills to infiltrate his "crew" themselves and assassinate him. Not according to plan, Wong Chia Chi (Wei Tang) becomes the sexual interest of their target, named Mr. Yee (Tony Leung), and suddenly becomes the essential keystone of their entire operation. When their initial attempt fails, they regroup three years later in Shanghai and try to finally finish their deadly mission.

oo nga naman

why would i keep on obliterating myself to those who hate me if i could make their lives miserable just by existing?

just because

i had fun with tabs last night, but just like caffeine happy wears off after a while. i feel the gloom that being a corporate slave brings. i drag myself into the office hoping i could have some quiet time to read or maybe get some zzz's. no dice. she came early too. so much for that quiet time.
and then came the nth time revision for the newsletter im doing. *this could be a looong day* so to save myself from committing murder i decided to make a wishlist/shopping list - *cough* my bday coming up *cough*. hehehehe.
i should buy myself all of this. least most of it.
harry potter trunk boxset -- i will love you forever.
the bodyshop almond scrub -- i just love the scent of this. take a whiff. hehhee

the bodyshop poppyseed hair mask -- this bugger works. really.

frank miller's 300 dvd -- in tin

colorsplash flash for my lca -- to get more trigger happy even if its dark

oka b gel thongs -- because i need something for my feet to breath and can stand the flood of kalayaan ave.

dorothy perkins broderie pinny -- because this looks good on me. hahhah.

well, that should cover it for now. honestly, some quality time should just do the trick. but it wont hurt if you add some of the stuff listed above. hahaha.
i feel better now. thank you.

How you life your life: In the moment. "Me want COOKIE!"

well. tsk. don't look at me. i dont know the answer. all i know is that i cannot have enough watches.

and shoes.
and clothes.
err. hehehhe.
tabs knows that im planning to get an expensive watch in hope to end the addiction.
and then i saw this:

tsk. so much for rehab.

mini rant

i was able to find myself with some down time last night, what did i do? hmm... grab some good food and stare at the tv. and i was able to see a nokia n95 ad about an adventure and the loot:
an N95, 50 grand and an aman pulo package!
whoo hoo! that has my name written all over it. so how do i join?
wenk wenk.
they have CELEBRITY players!
these people can buy a balikbayan box filled with n95s, gazillion money and can live at aman pulo for a week!
what a shame.

The Bottom Line
If you are having problems with coworkers, now is the time to start fighting back.

In Detail
Victory will be yours in an upcoming conflict -- and it won't be at all difficult to achieve. It seems that your foe will self-sabotage, or will perhaps unexpectedly be held accountable for past actions, enabling you to win this round without even getting your hands dirty. If you are having a problem with a coworker, now is the time to clearly state that you are not going to put up with it much longer. Your words will finally get through.

subukan ko ba?

got foam?

throw caution in the wind. never mind i will be broke but its all cool because i get to spend time with tabs. eating our favorite italian food and getting caffeine buzz. this will be - hopefully not - our last date before the Martial Law and before she heads for the sun and the sand. *inggit*had a great time, dear. see you when you get back.
more photos here.


what a terrible thing to say. sorry na.

poke you in the eye

survey from marky -- isa pa atang walang magawa. hahaha
that's right. im really bored. i have to force myself to go to work. work is beginning to feel like work. maybe i should quit. hahaha. the life of a bum is VERY appealing.

You scored as Passion. You are very passionate whether that passion is good or evil has yet to be determined. You have great power over others and they seem to flock to your service. You are very competative almost to a fault. Perhaps you should let someone else win for a change?

You're To Kill a Mockingbird!

by Harper Lee

Perceived as a revolutionary and groundbreaking person, you have
changed the minds of many people. While questioning the authority around you, you've
also taken a significant amount of flack. But you've had the admirable guts to
persevere. There's a weird guy in the neighborhood using dubious means to protect you,
but you're pretty sure it's worth it in the end. In the end, it remains unclear to you
whether finches and mockingbirds get along in real life.

You are The Wheel of Fortune

Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of
intoxication with success

The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.

help pls.

a friend wanted me to scout a venue for her. all help will be appreciated.

dream on

m asked me again "when are you taking pictures again?"
very good question, love.
he knew about my love for the old school photography and him, being a child of one great artist, i think he would want me not to lose my passion for it.
i remember spending hours and hours inside the darkroom, never mind it being haunted and stinking like vinegar... i just love it there.
i was talking to one of my old friends asking her about the old school cameras and i told her that i miss taking pictures and i want to start doing it again.
she told me to pursue my passion and she would support me with it.
yes, i'll start working on my album. maybe make a coffeetable book. hee.
special thanks to
gwyneth and kitty for talking me into dreaming again. now all i have to do is get my hand on this:
