Garden table

Here comes May, the time of the year when a lot of towns in Bohol would be celebrating fiesta, and our home in Bilar is fiesta ready with mama's new garden table set. So sad, I can't go home for the celebration, it would have been fun to prepare and experiment new desserts. It is also typical for the visitors to browse through photographs while waiting, so I am planning to print the Hong Kong pictures at Banana Book but they only have it in Ayala, which is quite far. Services like overnight prints at printingamerica.com would have been convenient for me, now that I live in a different island.

Fiesta is really more fun in Bohol.

Dreams


In my dream last night, I had a view of what our house looked like 20 years ago. The windows, the doors, the bed, I can't exactly describe how it looked but it's home, I grew up w/ those weird windows and peed on that bed when I was a kid. The grey backdoor also reminds me of the old water pump we had. But, my dream ended badly, there was a flashflood, and we had to go to our neighbor’s house since their place is more elevated.
Maybe I was too nervous about my lecture today that I dreamt about it. Now, I'm a bit relaxed so hoping for happy ending dreams.

Save eyes

I really want to wear eyeglasses now everytime I’m in front of a computer. I already feel like I have a computer vision syndrome which is characterized by having a blurred vision after a certain period of time. Got to browse some glasses at www.eyesave.com, or maybe a generic pair of glasses will do. I just need something to protect my eyes especially now that I’m focused on our website and spending most of my work time w/ it.

Brighter than the sun

Another song for the summer...


Stop me on the corner
I swear you hit me like a vision
I, I, I wasn't expecting
But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go with it?
Don't you blink you might miss it
See we got a right to just love it or leave it
You find it and keep it
Cause it ain't every day you get the chance to say

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, it could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

I never seen it, but I found this love, I wanna feel it
You better believe, I'm gonna treat it
Better than anything I've ever had
Cause you're so damn beautiful, read it
It's signed and delivered, let's seal it
Boy we go together like peanuts and paydays and MARLEY and reggae
And everybody needs to get a chance to say

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, it could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

Everything is like a whiteout, cause we shicka-shicka shine down
Even when the, when the light's out but I can see you glow
Got my head up in the rafters, got me happy ever after
Never felt this way before, ain't felt this way before

I swear you hit me like a vision
I, I, I wasn't expecting
But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go?

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, it could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun
Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, it could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

Brighter than the sun (3x)

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun (4x)

Work load


There's a lot new things at work this month which keeps me busy. First, we now have the new COSMO up and running for forecasting. I won't say that it is better than the other models, but it's pretty exciting for me since it's going to help me, a newbie, make a localized forecast. Next is the Visayas website, it's already up and we are now customizing the contents. Along with these, we have created our twitter and FB accounts for the warning of thunderstorm and heavy rains. There ain't gonna be lazy days at the office since we're are hoping to launch this by June.

All these are good improvements of the agency's regional centers, but the problems now is lack of manpower. You can't just designate these things to a workflow management software. We are lucky for now that we have on the job trainees, but once they are done w/ their hours, then goodluck to us.

The BBT season 6


The Big Bang Theory is still on a roll. It's on the sixth season and the episodes are getting better each time. Thanks to Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, for creating this silly, witty, hilarious TV series. And just recently, I noticed the message at the end of each episode, it is the vanity card written by Chuck Lorre and I also enjoy reading it. What a talent. 
So, it's official, this is number 2 in my list of TV series, with FRIENDS still on the top. 

"Smart is the new sexy."

Amanda S.

It’s a week for Amanda Seyfried in my laptop. I've been watching her movies starting with Letters to Juliet, Red Riding Hood, the musical Mamma Mia and Les Miserables, plus I am reading the book Dear John, and my favorite part is when she sang Honey, Honey. She has a pretty face and a beautiful voice, and a good actress. Well, I hope she'll have more good movies to come and won't be like those ‘good girls gone bad’ in Hollywood.

Menvanity

I was at David's Salon the other day, and I just noticed that men are vainer these days. While I had my manicure, I was counting, and the men outnumbered the women. Men now like to have facial treatment or have their hair colored, and some even have manicure/pedicure. I can feel the climate changing in the world of vanity. Men shouldn’t compete with us; they should just stay with their computer games.
