dEaR gLoBe

I sent a screaming email to Globe, our ISP, saying that I don’t get my money’s worth. I wouldn’t actually mind if I don’t use it for work. They really have bad service. Twice this month, they have a system restoration in the Visayas area, which lasted for 8 hours. I called their hotline and vented out my frustrations, but I don’t think, the customer service representative got my point, so I had to email them, good thing I got a response. They should give me the 2-day refund I asked from their billing department. I just hope their broadband service can soon accommodate voice over ip services.

MiSs mY rOoM

I’m back in the city. I kinda miss the city life here, but I’m also missing my room at home. I miss my queen size bed and my closet, which I don’t have in my boarding house. Well, the I don’t like is that, my room is like oven in the afternoon. It really needs good air conditioning especially that it’s summer. It doesn’t really bother me that much though since I spend most of my time in our living room, working. But if Ate Yen is generous enough to buy a unit, then why not? I’ll take care of the electricity bill. :)

FiEsTa Is oVer

That's fiesta in Bohol. It's a grand celebration.

Fiesta is over but the plan for renovation is not. We are still planning for a bigger terrace, which will look good with rustic furniture, to create a homey effect, a place to relax and have your cup of coffee.

I’m so busy at home preparing for the fiesta. It’s like a month long preparation for a 2-day celebration. Today, the sofa and the bed were delivered. I spent most of my time arranging and preparing the new room. I’m tired but so glad that the closet’s ready. I already have a place for my handbags.

My craving for bags and shoes strikes again because of SNN. They have a portion where they raid celebrities’ bags. I so envy them, with their ostrich bags and Italian leather handbags. So far, Gretchen is most organized. Inside her big bag, are several pouches to categorize her stuff. I also like Iya and Cheska’s choice. Well, I’m just glad I’m not in the city, less temptation for shopping.

nEw sHeEtS

I bought a new 4-piece set of bed sheet today, with 2 pillowcases, 1 flat sheet and 1 fitted. It's just a simple, striped, orange sheet. I just hope it will look good in my new room. At first I was thinking of getting a comforter, but the room is not yet air-conditioned, so maybe next time. I'm only buying the air cooler. Whew! I'm gonna be so busy shopping tomorrow, including the sofa and other stuff needed for the fiesta. Well, I'm happy to help mom and dad with home management, and our greenie is a big help too.

For mother's day, I'm planning to bring mom to the salon if she has the time.

i'lL bE tHeRe FoR yOu (rEmBrAnDtS)

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your jobs a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.

It's like you're always stuck in second gear
And it hasn't been your day, your week, your month,
or even your year
but..

I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...

You're still in bed at ten
And work began at eight
You've burned your breakfast
So far... things are goin' great

Your mother warned you there'd be days like these
Oh but she didn't tell you when the world has brought
You down to your knees that...

I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...

No one could ever know me
No one could ever see me
Seems you're the only one who knows
What it's like to be me
Someone to face the day with
Make it through all the rest with
Someone I'll always laugh with
Even at my worst I'm best with you, yeah

It's like you're always stuck in second gear
And it hasn't been your day, your week, your month,
or even your year...

I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...

I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...
