I play around with my friend's (Ian) friendster account. Above picture is the result. Ian who's working in Qatar like it though so I think it's ok. Redesigning his account took me less that 20 minutes. Hehehe. He's sending me gift this Xmas direct from Qatar.

Since 2002 we've been having our HS class of 1997 reunion and every year we voted for a host. Last year we voted Earnest as our host under the St. James class. Then later this month I've been receiving texts and e-mails informing and asking me regarding reunion as it is me will be the host for this year. At first it seems that they're just making fun and joking around 'til almost all of my batchmates are asking me and taking it all seriously. Their reason is that my parents open a bar in our province and they (our batchmates) suddenly decided that having the bar and all that, it would be best for me to be this years host. That's simply outrageous. How am I supposed to come up a money to spend for the food and drinks and the rent dor the place were in fact I'm jobless right now and the only reason I have money to spend is because of my savings from previous job and from my freelance job. I already told them to stop those nasty roumors. Gosh. Ok, I told them that if they wanted to use our place then the least I can do is to convince my parents to let us use the bar for a day for our reunion and the rest of our batchmates have to contribute for the food and drinks, and yeah I'm willing to be the host and I'll come up with a program to make it more special. But to spend all the expenses by myself, there's no way I can agree to that and even if I want to, I still don't have the resources. Well, if they insist, I could'nt care less if we have a reunion or not. Sigh.

It's seemed so sad to hear these words coming from a love-one, from a partner or from a friend. Last night we were discussing a lot of things, mostly random, until we came to a topic about us. She told me that someday she had to go abroad and work there and eventually the two of us will lose contact and eventually end up not being together but with some other person's arms. She's so sure and seemed so confident that this has to be the path that both of going to take. The only way - separate ways. That fate brings us together for a reason to make us both realize what we want in life and therefore, we must work hand-in-hand to attain what fate has in store for us. I was shocked and seemed that it's the end of the world. I'm totally blank. I felt numbed all over.
After a while, I thought about the things she said and come to realize that if it's the way things should happen, then so be it. Let it come and I'll wait for it realizing that I'm going to lose the very person that makes my world go round. The person that ticks my body clock.
I am very happy with our relationship and couldn't ask for more - maybe longevity or even forever. Yet I know, deep within me I believe her. I believe every word she says. It's been so clear that I refuse to see it. To recognize it because I'm so afraid I'm going to lose her.
Most of us pictures ourselves having our own family and all that. We jump from one relationship to another trying to fill in the blank faces of our wife or husband for that matter, Trying to find the perfect fit. Until we forgot the very essence why we look in the first place.
It's been 10 months since we came to know each other and eventualy becoming a couple. Looking back at all those times, I realized that I love every moment I spent with her and I do not regret that I exerted and gave what I had to make the both of us happy. Yes, I admit that I became selfish at one point or another, but that's just how I do it. That's how I know how to make our relationship work. I also realized that the love is still there and it will last forever, but there are also a lot of things that need to be consider too.
Thus, if the time comes that she had to go away and leave me, I will not stop her. I will even encourage her to go and do waht she must do no matter how painful and hard it may be for me. For I know that sacrificing myself for a greater cause would prove that my love for her is genuine. Leaving with me only the hope that someday if it is meant for us to be together then we must be togethere. Otherwise, I will go on with my own journey and search for the perfect one.

It's been 3 years since I last saw our former Engineer Chairperson Ms. Nenita Malaluan and I never thought that I would bump with her at the most unexpected place - The Presidential Yatch. Yes, I saw her again at my mom's bestfriend birthday party. I never seen her so happy and so relax. She's not her usual "business attitude" self. In fact she's a totally different person at all. She's friendly, down-to-earth and she talked a lot too.
I remember the first day I saw her was during my DOST Mathematics tutorial (given to those DOST scholars) days. Before we enter college, we scholars are oblige to undergo tutorial on English and Mathematics subjects. She was then a perfectionist, know-it-all, I'm-always-right, so-shut-up kind of person and no one messes up with her. Her class that time was so quite that you could hear the needle when drop to the floor. Everyone were so terrified at her. There was this one time, when one of the scholars bf visited her and while Ms. Malaluan was teaching, the bf kept of bothering the gf so Ms. Malaluan completely lost it and scold the bf in front of us. The bf tried to rebut but he was overpowered by Ms. Malaluan and so he left in shame. I also remember Jay-Roy (one of the DOST scholars) that he has to go and look for another route when he sees Ms. Malaluan comes his way. Hahaha. It's so much fun to recall all those tragic moments.
Now, she's connected to a different school here in Manila and was no longer working in Ateneo (de Davao University). I heard some nasty rumors as to why she's no longer connected but I do not really care because what I see now is a completely different person. She's changed so much - for the better. I do hope that she keeps up the miraculous work. God bless, more power and good luck ma'am.

I've seen the latest Harry Potter Movie on the opening day (Nov. 16, 2005). I've been dying to watch the 4th installment of Harry Potter saga come alive in the silver screen for so long because I wanted so much to see for myself how the casts and crews are able to interpret the book into a movie.
Having seen the last 3 films, I already know that there are a lot of editing had been done and I do not hide the fact that I've been disappointed in some of the way they do it in film but nonetheless, I enjoyed the past 3 films and come to love them as I love the books. Thus, I know that HP4 would be no exception. This time, there are a lot of scenes and characters that have been omitted like Mrs. Weasley. Ginny doesn't utter a single word. Dumbledore seemed crazy and seemed too strong for his old age (not to mention he sat on a corner of his office and tried to strangle Harry - not so magical for me) and his robe looked like never been wash for a decade or century perhaps. How about the scene where Hermione supposedly caught Rita Skeeter as unregestered animagus?! Then put her in the jar for making nasty gossips on the paper. There are a lot of things that I could mention. Sigh.
On the brighter side of the story, the way most of the characters deliver the script are more mature. The special effects are indeed special and most of the time breathtaking. Wow! The dragons, the girls from Beuxbaton, the maze but I love Voldemort the best. Ralph Fiennes is perfect for the role. He's so scarry. Even the children who are watching the flick were scared and some of them actually cried. Effective eh.
As a whole I give the film 4 stars... I do enjoyed it a lot... Great work...
