Downtown

Finally, it's my rest day and I'm going home to Bohol right after my shift. I'm not really going downtown but it's a place where I could forget all my troubles and forget all my cares. I miss videoke singing because of a song I heard today.

So here's the inspiring song I heard from the very cute commercial of McDonalds:

Flexi

I feel like I've been flexible for some time now, and I thought it's all good, but eventually, being in this state is in a way, losing your personality. You know, instead of expressing your anger or dislike, you just tend to be quiet so you'd be able to live and work harmoniously with the people around you. You try to be accommodating to whatever situation you are in. It may sound okay, but it may have a negative effect coz in the long run, you may lose the confidence to voice out whatever emotions or thoughts you've been absorbing.
Well, just a random thought on this almost-end-of-the-workweek-graveyard-shift.

Decor time

Christmas is early at the office and I was tasked to put up the tree and some other decorations. I'm still using the old ones so I need to go to the mall this week to buy more decors and maybe shop for a burlap table runner here with holiday theme. And when my sister comes home, we will also start decorating at home.

Beautiful Sunday

Another beautiful day today in Cebu; it's going to be sunny and windy, no worries for rain or thunderstorms during the day. This is a good start of my week, and I'll start working on some paperwork for my visa and I'm hoping I could lodge my application this week. I'm excited, and I also hope that all goes well with my Authority to Travel which has to be signed with the agency and department head.

Odette 2013

Odette is the strongest tropical cyclone so far this year, even the central Visayas is feeling the effects of it. Due to this TC, the southwest monsoon has been enhanced and so we experienced windy days for the past few days. There are approximately five cyclones more this year and one of them may track Visayas. Everyone should be prepared and start looking for welding supplies to fix some loose materials in our house so it will not be blown away by these strong winds.

Tonight will be the first day of my work week and it’s going to be a busy one, especially that another disturbance is about to enter PAR, so avoid sea travel in small vessels this time, the sea waves are moderate to rough. Be safe everyone.

Let there be peace

This is really sad. Few weeks after the Zamboanga dispute started, another bombing occurred in one of the malls in Davao City and a bomb threat in another mall. This dispute isn't gonna end that easily and I feel sad for all the victims and even for the soldiers who have to be there to fight...

"Imagine there's no countries 
It isn't hard to do 
Nothing to kill or die for 
And no religion too 
Imagine all the people 
Living life in peace"

di Caprio

I recently watched "Catch Me If You Can", and it made me wonder why does Leonardo don't have an Oscar for best actor? He's such a great lead actor in great movies like:

Titanic
Man in the Iron Mask
Catch Me If You Can
The Departed
Blood Diamond
Body of Lies
Inception

I won't be home for Christmas

Oh Christmas, you are really almost here, I am already feeling you, and you always bring this indescribable mixed emotion so early in the morning. It is still 4:30 and I’m already up, so here I am, in front of my laptop, coz my place isn’t really a good spot where you could enjoy early morning sunrise. So I'm just listening to Christmas songs playlist in YouTube, but these ads are really annoying, I hope I could take them out with Iolo, but anyway, the songs are always saying, "I’ll be home for Christmas", but I don't want to be literally at home  during the holidays, coz home will be somewhere down under, and first step for this will be to submit my leave form next week, I really pray that things will go well.

Our Day Will Come

I like this version by Amy Winehouse.

Monsoon break

Southwest monsoon is starting to recede and we are about to have a monsoon break. This would be the perfect time to go to Boracay coz it's not so crowded this time. When we were there last time, we tried out the helmet diving and I wanna do that again, then try out other fun activities like the Zorb, ATVs for Kids and the banana boat.

Work shift

And my body clock is messed up now that I'm in the graveyard schedule, a 11-hour shift, plus a Thursday-Friday off. Every time I wake up at night, I'm always confused with the date and time and I really need to list down even the small things that I need to do because I keep on forgetting it. Well, its takes a little more time to get used to this schedule, and once I do, it will already be time to rotate our schedule.

The Voice iPad

I enjoyed using this application coz it makes u feel like you are in the actual blind audition. They have good song choices from the top hits to songs from the show. I've also been challenged coz I really wanted to get all four coaches to spin their chairs. Once I'd get that, then I'll be ready for Battle.

Noooo!!!!

I am officially no longer part of your fan club. It would have been ok if it was Megan Young or Iza Calzado or Liz Uy, but Cristine Reyes? Duhhhhh.

September Mornin'

"Wake me up when September ends", "Do you remember the 21st night of September", then there's "September morn". Why are there a lot of songs about September? why not February, May or maybe October? Well, whatever the reason is, the start of 'ber months gives me excitement, as I'll be seeing white christmas lights soon and I hope and pray that I will be where I have to be during the holidays.

Graveyard

I'm back to graveyard shift for one month, just like my call center days. I'm still adjusting though coz I have a different environment here in my new job. Unlike the call center, my office location is quite remote and there aren't really shops around, then, there only two of us during the shift, so its kind of lonely, but I could take lonely, not just scary.
