I have been thinking of how my life went last 2007 and I realized how blessed I was throughout the year. Aside from surviving life in Japan, being able to visit new places, being reassigned to a new project, being able to purchase stuffs for myself (which was really a “breakthrough” for me as my friends call it) and spending Christmas and New Year back home, I thank God for all the realizations, lessons learned and changes that I went through.

Although a lot of people have been writing their recaps every year, I haven’t written any recap ever since I started writing journals. I know it’s a bit late to be doing so for 2007, after all it’s already the second week of the new year, but I still would like to give it a try. However instead of highlighting events, I would just like to take this opportunity to thank these people who have made 2007 a wonderful and memorable year for me.

Thank you:
  • Mom for being supportive and loving and for always believing in me. And even if you criticize me a lot (sabi mo nga constructive criticisms diba? hehe..), I know that its just your way of making “lambing”. Even though we’re far away and you seldom go online, you never fail to send me encouraging texts once in while and I want you to know that those are what keeps me going and what gives me hope and makes me stronger.
  • Shorbies ^__^ for the “kaartehan” talks we have ALL the time dahil parati kang nagchachat kahit sinasabi mong gumagawa ka lang ng assignment. :P You are one of the reasons why I miss home so much. Yucks drama! Hahahaha. But seriously, I do hope we keep this kind of closeness until we grow old.
  • Emman for the love, acceptance and most of all the respect. I also know it takes a lot of understanding from you to stand my bratty ways. Kahit palagi mo akong sinusungitan sa maraming bagay, it makes me feel that you care for me and you want me to grow and be more mature in facing life. I never would have survived Japan kung wala ka dito.
  • Sa mga traDSyunerz (Gail, Yhoyhien, Tinnie, Mama Tin, Cherman, Kuya Neo, Kuya Edwin, Kuya Tsard, Sir Ces, Tacio, Borj) for the warm welcome. I can’t remember the exact date when I first met all of you but I certainly will forever cherish the laughter, excitement, performances, photo sessions, “adventures” and the highs I have shared with all of you. Although nahihiya parin ako sa inyo, salamat sa pagtanggap at sa pagkakaibigan. Sobrang astig at saya ng 2007 ko dahil nakilala ko kayo.
  • Tasj for always keeping in touch and for trusting me with the things happening in your life. You went through a lot last year and it really saddens me that I can’t be by your side to at least give you a hug. I really enjoy our YM chats and I hope we could do that more often. I hope to see you soon.
  • Badong for the inspiring and encouraging words every once in a while. Bihira lang tayo naguusap online but everytime we get to talk I am always reminded that life is great and there are a lot of things to be grateful for. Thank you for being an inspiration.
  • My s19 friends for pep talks and messages. Nakakatouch dahil kahit na bc-bchan lahat sa work at maraming tayong pinagkakaabalahan, naaalala niyo parin mangamusta paminsan minsan. I hope we could all get together again some time. (Ponky, sana matuloy yung Japan trip niyo ahihihihi) 
  • Popsie for being my new found friend of the year.  Ngayon ko lang naexperience yung magkaroon ng chatmate na magaan kausap kahit hindi ko pa namemeet in person *wink*. Pero shempre naglevel up na tayo dahil nameet na kita finally at txtmates narin tayo . See you again pagbalik ko bonding tayo ha?
  • Aps for all the chismax! Hahahaha. You have a way of turning a dull/boring day at the office exciting and intriguing ahihihihi. Sorry and thank you at the same time for being my rant-mate and shock absorber :P. mwah mwah mwah! Hug hug hug! :D Super happy and enjoy ako talaga sa mga usap natin.
  • To my Resona teammates (Sir Jay, Allen, Kuya Aubrey, Bry, Kuya Rey, Kiks) para sa makulay na araw sa ofc. Kahit everyday niyo ako binubully (or vice versa? :P) marami akong natututunan sa inyo mapawork-related man or hindi. Mahaba-habang panahon pa ang bubunuin ko para ma-take ang mga jokes niyo! Seriously, thank you for taking care of me bilang nag-iisang babae sa team. Kelan ba matutuloy ang karaoke?
To everyone else, thank you for being part of my life and belated Happy New Year to all of you! May God bless you and your family this 2008! Kampai!

At the height of the Glorietta 2 incident,
an ofcmate asked me if I received a message
claiming that 3 of my former ofcmates/teammates were
included in the list of those who died in the bombing.
She said, she got a ym message from someone claiming
to be the brother of one of the 3 victims.
At that moment, I felt really disturbed and thought
that this was not a good prank, that is if it was just a prank.
As soon as I got home, I opened my ym only to find out that
I also got the same message my ofcmate got, and
another message confirming that it was really true and not
just another prank. Then I felt the urge to check tv patrol
videos and other online sources to see for myself. Much as I wanted
to disprove it, i saw their names right infront of me.

Until now, I still cannot comprehend how in just a blink of an eye,
innocent people, or worse, a friend or someone you know of could have
died like that along with their hopes and dreams for their loved ones.
But I know that God has a reason for everything and He knows what's best.
I am just thankful that even in such short time God gave me the chance
to meet these 3 wonderful people. Rest assured, their memories will
forever be cherished.

To Mau, for the countless OTs we've spent and the stories we've shared..
for those laughters and tears..
To "Tito" Onin, for laughing moments and your kakulitan..
To Jee Ann, for the warm smile on your face everytime we say hello..

May your souls rest in perfect peace with God and His angels
And may God give strength to your families and grant them with comfort
Thank you for everything
You'll surely be missed
Till we meet again..


"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. Know a good thing when you see it, and don't let it slip away. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just said it would be worth it."

Eventhough mag-3 months palang ako dito sa Japan, I’m already missing a lot of things sa Pinas :(

~ I miss shopping with mom and sister. (kahit hanggang window shop lang.. hehe)
~ I miss tater’s potato chips bbq with sour cream dip.
~ I miss the Tagalog teleseryes.
~ I miss the lively atmosphere sa office. ( especially pag anjan si miss venus at miss cris kahit nagO-OT :( )
~ I miss lunchouts every Friday with ofcmates. *sigh*
~ I miss my church and church friends.
~ I miss my gurlfriends. ( calling calling aps.. ;)) )
~ I miss after lunch toothbrush sessions with toothbrush mates ;))
~ I miss Chinese food especially the dimsum at Golden Fortune.

sobrang sakit ng likod ko... my lower back is seriously aching.. pramis.. kahit anung position gawin ko pag-upo or paghiga talagang masakit siya.. nagpa x-ray ako kahapon dahil sobrang paranoid na ako feeling ko may scoliosis ako or slip disc.. super natakot ako kse sabi nila if slip disc daw to i have to undergo an operation para maayos siya lalo na if serious case niya..

so this afternoon i went back to have the reading of my x-ray.. and honestly di ako nakatulog kagabi mashado coz i was really worried kung anung magiging results.. nung pagbigay sakin ng results and x-ray i read the paper and guess what anung impression:

PEDICULAR DEXTRO-ROTATION, LUMBAR SPINE WITH SLIGHT PREDISPOSITION TO LUMBAR INSTABILITY

waaaah... anu yun?!? this time iba na yung naramdaman ko sobrang kinabahan na talaga ako... then the nurse told me to go to the orthopedic.. so pumunta ako dun.. i waited for around 15 minutes pa bago yung turn ko.. sobrang nagppray na ako chaka kinakabahan.. after the long wait finally tinawag na ako.. pagpasok ko sa room sabi sakin nung doctor "kinakabahan ka noh??" ;)) sabi ko "opo" sobrang obvious pala sa mukha ko yun kaba ko.. tapus bigla niyang sinabi, "don't worry its nothing serious.. exagg lang yung pagkakasabi dahil technical terms yung ginamit"
so you can imagine how relieved i was.. sabi niya muscle spasm lang daw siguro so binigyan niya ako ng gamot pang-relieve ng pain.. hopefully gumana na tong gamot.. please Lord..

pero thank God talaga sa results.. :)
