Sunday, 3:08 PM

My computer crashed last Friday, the power supply exploded and I had it fixed for a thousand bucks. My friend told me that it's so expensive and I should have asked him to do it instead. Hayyy...enough of those panghihinayang - the damage has been done. I'm just so happy that I am now able to use my computer again. I made 4 reviews today just to make up for the lost opps.

Anyway, I am writing because I feel so blessed to have another gay friend. I, with Mamu, went to Greenhills last Thursday (since I would be on PTO that night) and had a very emotional sharing moment. Hahaha! First we waited till 2:00 pm since he want to have a glimpse of his crush (LOL) and then off we went to GH. We ate at Teriyaki Boy and ordered my ever favorite Sukiyaki Beef.I treated him for lunch since he installed some stuff on my pc and my hubby was so happy that at last he can now play the cd game he's been wanting to play for so long buy can't download himself...h…

What Keeps Me Busy?


I've been very busy these past two weeks...not because of work but because of extra curricular activities..hahaha! we've been going out with my officemates for almost two weeks now almost everyday every after shift...and it's really draining my energy. I was'nt able to blog for almost 15 days and I lost so many opportunites on the net. Well, I think it's all worth it. I am really thankful to God that he gave me such wonderful friends in the office and it really made me look forward for every shift because I would be able to be with them. I nearly lost my drive to work in my current company until they came...and I am sooo happy that I stayed.

By the way, I would most likey start to work tomorrow after my shift. I would first fix my schedule and I would get all the opps I can get. I don't know if I would still opt for a laptop as a Christmas gift for myself... I am still thinking about it. I am planning to save my 13th month pay for ou…

Bonding Moment with My Sistah!


Another day at the office has ended... I am so tired. I had a lot of calls today and I am exhausted. Good thing, I am seated next to my gay friend Mamu which makes the shift enjoyable. We joke around most of the time and made "okray" our teammates and each other as well. As you all know, Mamu just recently came "out of the box" and just recently did he realized that he is indeed a "mermaid" (lol!). We ate at Guadix with Franc - one of our teammates and I've eaten bacon and egg. So yummy and it cost me only P64 with large iced tea na yun. Very affordable and very delicious pa! Anyways, after shift...we again had our lamyerda @ Gale. I intend to buy an outfit for our forthcoming team building on Sunday and also I would treat mamu for lunch as a token of appreciation because he agreed to be on a 1 am shift instead of having a 12mn shift w/c he originally have so that we could be together as I would be on 1:30 am shift. I real…


2:32 pm, Monday

I don't know why I don't normally go out on my rest day and prefer going out the day before my shift. Maybe because I am so lazy dressing up especially if it's my off. I would rather stay at home and work on my blog that to go to the mall. That only proves that I am indeed a home body...would rather stay home and do something productive that spend my time, energy and money on something that is really not that important. Anyways, had my pedicure and manicure a while ago and just bought an earphone for my cellphone. It's also a great time for me and my Jojo to bond as we strolled along Waltermart. We talked about our future plans and what we've agreed upon is that - he instead of me, will be the one to work abroad. I would ask my sister, who is working in Singapore along with her husband to help Jojo find a job in a hotel. Anyway, my brother is law is also working right now in a Hotel, I hope there is still a vacancy. Second option is for h…


OCTOBER 10,2008

Well, it's my 2nd Year Anniversary it the office. I made it! I am really looking forward to spend at least 2 years in a call center as I plan to apply for the same position in Singapore. Although I celebrated our 2nd year...seems everything was plain and ordinary like before. Well, I had my friends with me at the office, its given, but I really don't feel anything special about this...well yeah I did feel something head ached terribly on the last hour of my shift. We are having a lot of avail time after 11:00 am and I was'nt able to get any call after 11:30 am till 1:00 PM. Actually, I want to celebrate sana this day with Mamu and Ice lang but my head ached terribly so I think I need to postpone for next payday. I lend P500 pala on one of my teammates...feeling good Samaritan me because she said she need it for the weekend and since I still have some extra, from my online job, I willingly volunteered. I went home so hungry and tired. Aft…



I came to work 4 mins late...if I only knew that our online time card is not working, I should have walked through a different direction away from my tl's station. But since I said hi, he was able to notice that I was again late. Amp! Well, the whole shift went well. I was able to spend lunch time with Ice, Mamu and Imee. We had our meeting and TL again told us that we would be officially moving back to Home Networking split. Well, i was a bit sad about it. Why only now? And why are they moving us back and forth on different splits? There are so many things I really can't fathom but I would hold on to this job...for how long? I don't know...

Not So Good Day for Me

SEPT. 29,2008

I don't really feel well today. Actually, I came home before 4:00 am and luckily I was able to see one of my teammates and had the chance to seat next to them. I had 2 sup calls on the first 3 hours of my day, my head is aching throughout my shift, we ate at Mcdo spending a hundred bucks for a meal I should've not ordered...imagine, they charge P10 for a small chicken gravy! I thought I already passed my scorecard only to find out that another "Very Dissatisfied" survey came which is really not intended for me. I had a coaching session with my very considerate TL and I he said he would have it exempted for ADP. ADP is like a performance evaluation...if your are on ADP - you need to pass the next three consecutive scorecards to still continue to work for Convergys - and a lot of people, including my friends, was'nt able to pass it which means... they need to find a place to work elsewhere. I don't want to leave CVG now...not in the next 3 …

My Professional Plans

SEPT. 26,2008

I'm back! Finally, I had the time to blog again. How's everyone? Well life at the office has been pretty fine as I was able to bond with my new teammates. The mood is light again after one of my closest friend Gherj, left the office to follow her dream to be a computer programmer. Yesterday, Coach gave me a coaching session and gave me several options if ever I would stay in the company for the coming years. He is pushing me to apply for a TL position in the future in which I am kind'a hesitant. I am not the kind of person who wants responsibilities...of course, it would be an honor to be promoted to such position but I know for a fact that "to whom much is given, much is expected" which is synonymous to prestige and high salary and sleepless nights, stress, and overtime work. I know what I want - manageable time...enough cash...quality time with the family and so far, I can say I have those three...but if ever I would opt for a hi…

Og Mandino Books

SEPT. 26,2008

I want to buy this book. I've been looking for a free downloadable ebook for this but unfortunately I cant find one. Well, I might as well buy this book. I remember wayback 1998 when Malen told me to read this book as this is really inspiring and after 10 years, I finally would. I am into inspirational books lately, after "5 People you Meet in Heaven" and "Tuesdays with Maurie" which are both awesome - I intend to read Og Mandino's books. I want to revive back my old self at that time when everything I do is for the glory of God. I hope through this, I can be as close to God as I was before. Amen.



I had my PTO today... and of course, as expected... the whole day was spent in bed, sleeping for hours and dreaming of all positive things. I wan't to break that kind of hobby especially during my rest days especially during vacation leaves! My golly, I don't intend to file for a leave just to reunite with my bed and pillow... but I can't help it. Since we moved to a bigger house, and the bed we are sleeping in now is much bigger and the mattress more softer.... I can't help myself but to let my back feel the comfort it brings (whatda!) Hay, I went home at around 8:30 am after having an early morning breakfast with Mamu @ Mcdo (thank you Mamu!). Immediately after I got myself on our bed... I have'nt been able to resist it's charm. I slept till 1 pm and was just awaken by loud knocks at my door from my father. It's payday so as a tradition, my father would usually spend lunchtime with us and will go home after watching "…

Hu Will Be My Bestfriend Tonight???

Sept. 13

I stayed all night and of course, again worked on my blogs. I am working on my health blog, my food blog and my advice portal. Would also soon will be working on my "intriga" portal. Hahaha. I hope I would be successful as well in those new blogs as I've been with the previous ones. Anyways, I manage to take a nap at around 4:00 am and woke up at 7:00 am because we need to accompany Mama at BPI to withdraw her pension allowance from SSS. Of course, whenever we do that, Mama would treat us for lunch at a nearby fastfood... Jollibee or Chowking. Anyways, I bought a cute jacket at a nearby ukay ukay for only P100! Cute na cute ako sa kanya and although Mama opposed the idea, I still bought it.. hehehe.

Anyways, we just ate a slight snack and just asked mama to give us the remaining budget we have for lunch treat and we'll just gonna buy 2 kilos of rice from it and a half kilo of chicken and we'll just cook adobo from it since we're still full…

Green Blood Indeed

Sept. 12

Finally, it's my OFF! Yahoo! After my shift, I've waited for my dear sister Mamu coz' I want my hubby to meet him. I've told Jojo everything about this gay este guy, how he crack jokes, how he lives his life, and how hard he tries to hide his true personality. Actually, Jojo really feels that he is not gay. Well, if you could only see him...he looks like a matinee idol with mustache and beard like a real tough guy. But what lies beneath those mustache shows the answer and unless you have a "radar" for third sex, you would never think that he is in fact a she.

Anyways, off we went to MiniStop where my hubby is waiting and because me and mamu is so kikay, we planned a scheme. He would put his hands around my shoulder and I would put my hands on his hip as we approach Jojo and pretend we were shocked to see him. I want to know what his reaction would be. While walking, I thought of fooling mamu and told him that the guy next to the pole is Jojo, I…

VGH Again After Ten Years!

Sept. 10

ahahaha! i never really expected that we'll gonna be on VGH (Voluntary Go Home) @ exactly 2:30 am. Besides the fact that I am late (again!!!) today... it's been almost like ten years since I last had one. Well yeah, every night especially whenever my stats are passing - I would normally file for VGH but they are seldom approved. One of the possibilities is either the que wont allow us or there are some teams that will have their for meeting for the day. Just soooo lucky today that our team filed first among others so we got the slot! I was so happy and decided to go home early at around 3 am after I take my lunch. Sadly, when I texted Jojo he did'nt respond. I tried calling him up on his cellphone and even on their home phone (jojo slept at his mother's place last night) but he is not answering. I need to speak with him so he could fetch me and we can go home together. I tried so many times to reach him but I think he is sleeping sooo soundly that he …

It Rained So Hard

Sept. 9, 2008

I again went back to my old birdie template. I was kind'a bored with the previous pink girly template that I had before on this site so I picked my "used to be" template and put a lot of colorful things on it and I was pleased on the outcome. I hope this would inspire me to post more on this "personal" blog of mine. Anyways, I came to the office 20 minutes before my shift as I promised my coach I wont be late anymore. I need to make this promise so that my coach won't issue an NTE (Notice to Explain) regarding the 2 consecutive days I was late for more than an hour. Unfortunately, when the time came that I need to logged in to my avaya phone to take HN calls, I've noticed my Avaya (phone) is not working. Oh nooooh! I panicked so I just logged in t mytoto (digital time card) and just fixed my avaya phone... too late, I was able to fix my phone 2 minutes later. I hope coach wont notice I'm late again today. Haaaay.

Anyways, it&#…

Farewell To You My Friend

My friend Gherj already gave her resignation letter and our operations manager already approved it. This is indeed a decision she made because she wants to fulfill her dream to become a computer programmer and since our job mainly focuses on tech support - she feels she would not really improve her programming skills if she would This is really it, this is indeed a reality.... I will again lose not just an officemate but a dear friend. Yeah, we do have a lot of disagreements due to her "sensitivity" issues but we always make sure every misunderstanding is properly addressed. I will definitely miss her. I would miss our conversation about our plans of making ourselves more attractive by undergoing some medical procedures - her undergoing breast enlargement procedure and me going through plastic surgery from one of the best New York cosmetic surgeon. I would miss seeing her laughing even on the corniest jokes I crack. Things would not be the same indeed once she's gone.


Love the Movie: Lost Boys

Just saw the movie "The Lost Boys: The Tribe" on the net while doing some stuff for my blog at 2 am and I would say, it's a nice one. The scariest horror figure for me is a vampire as it can eat one person alive through its sharp fangs- and that for me is indeed scary! The story evolves around Chris and his younger sister who, after having lost their parents in a car accident, moved in with their Aunt and become new prey for the locals way of life. When Nicole falls for a vampire, Chris must locate and destroy the gans lifeline before his sister's transformation is complete ... and he had this done with the help of a Vampire slayer Chris. I enjoyed watching the film and actually parked my blog to finish the movie. Good one here, you should check on it!

Mom is Wise Indeed!

My 2nd elder brother's entire family came to my place yesterday. He, along with his 4 children dropped by for lunch and dinner though I am really not expecting he'll gonna bring his whole family, I thought only he and his youngest son will come so I was'nt able to cook enough. Anyways, my mother who actually planned this reunion called telling me she would not make it as she is with my eldest brother and would just drop by tomorrow. What?! I really felt bad because she is the one who planned this whole reunion and she's the first one to back out. She never told me that my brother's entire family would come, I shoul've cooked a number of dishes. I was surprised to see five people in my door and I panicked because I only cooked one meal. Good thing, hubby helped me cook 2 more dishes and our reunion turned out to be fine.

As for mother, well I should've known better. Mother would always get the best option, always. I bet my brother called her up and asked her…

I Want my Own House....

It's my restday again! Actually, it's yesterday and today. Yesterday after shift, I with my hubby went to Montalban... my mom's place to see my ever dearest nephew Empoy. We really had a nice time as Empoy is already mumbling words and what's strange is his first learned word is "jojo" (my hubby's name which would be his soon to be ninong). I also dropped by because I am planning to get a house at a newly opened subdivision also near my mom's place. We inquired about it but unfortunately, only 9 slots are available w/c only does have one bedroom. I'm planning to get a 2 bedroom house - one for us and one will act as a guest room. The agent told us that we need to hurry as the 9 slots are very limited and anyone who first gave their reservation fee will be the one to get it. I am kin'da hesitant because they can't show me the model house as she said they are still constructing it. How can I decide if I can't even see the model house? So…

Blessing In Disguise

I was absent again! My fever comes and goes for 5 straight days now eating up my 3 restdays and a vacation leave! Supposedly, I will be reporting for work tonight and would just go home at around 12mn (my shift today is from 8pm to 5am) but I again felt dizzy so Jojo decided to just accompany me to the nearest clinic just to secure a medical certificate - a proof that I really had a fever. My coach and the rest of the team would definitely feel that everything was planted as I did'nt go to the office a day after my looong vacation. Hay...

Furthermore, I lost $30 because I was'nt able to post a review for 3 of my pending opps. In times like this, I really need a lot of review tasks. I am experimenting on new niche blogs but was'nt able to posts any for the past week due to my condition. I pray I could revive back my strength to write again.

BTW, I was so happy that my mama and papa called me and checked how I am feeling. Even my eldest brother, my brother living in Montalb…

Been Sick For Two Days

I've been sick for two days now...I spent most of my time in my bed and slept the whole day. I've not been productive and I lost $10 today because of an expired opps - I know health should be my top priority but I can't help but feel bad about an expired opps. Haaay. It seems my 2 restdays were wasted because I can't work on my blogs nor can I do some other things. I am only capable of going to the cr once in a while and get back to sleep. I hope I would feel better tomorrow. I hate to think that my vacation leave would be spent on my bed again, noooh, not anymore so by hook or by crook - I'll make enjoy myself tomorrow, promise.

Inspired to Blog

I was so happy that my vacation leave for Saturday has been approved! So all in all, I have 4 restdays... regular restdays would be Thursday and Friday. VL on Saturday and another off on Sunday for the next rotation. Hmmm....4 days of fun and relaxation... I hope so. But I know most part of my day would be spent in front of my PC writing articles for my blogs and of course, my new niche blog. Hay, I hope I could make it. I was really inspired by how much my friend is earning online - imagine - $100/day??? $3,000 / month is equivalent to P126,000/month!! Is'nt that amazing??? Working at your own house, at your own phrase, at your own time - and earning 7x as much as what regular employees are earning having to work almost 10 hrs. a day! It's really inspiring is'nt it? I hope all the Filipinos especially those smart but unemployed ones would be able to know the art of making money online. Amen.

Close Encounter with A Wowowee Fan

Nothing special, we (together with Ice and Gherj) ate at Mcdo @ lunch @ 4:45 am so we only have 45 minutes more to log in. Nice thing, we were on maxcap for 30 minutes after we came back so we just need to spend 15 minutes on the phone. My last call was an American guy who happen to have some issues with his Mac Mail. He asked me where am I located and I told him that I'm from the Philippines. He said I did'nt sound like one and said he thought I'm also from Texas as I used the word "right quick". (duh) So instead of just spending 15 minutes on my last took me 30 minutes coz his exwife is a Filipina as well. I can't help but laugh when he said "I bet your favorite show is Wowowee...". Hahaha! He said all the Filipino Community in Texas watches Wowowee so he can't help but also watch that on TFC. Since then he said, he never stopped watching the show though he really does'nt know the language. He said that the warmth and the humor o…


I was'nt! I came at around 9:15 pm as my shift starts at 9:30 pm. The shift is actually okey as there are so many avail time and my load is kind'a easy today. Checked on my emails and written some new articles on my new niche blog about life lessons and advices. I would soon start working on my travel blog, I hope I can make it good this time. I finally was able to have an idea on how to make a niche blog, I was able to browse different sites on the net that tackles about affiliate programs and niche sites so I became interested and soon was able to at least had an idea on how to optimize my blogs. There are still so many things I need to know especially on web optimization and I'm getting there. I am absorbing all the ideas I could get about that and hopefully I can put that into practice. I am so obsessed on this scheme that sometimes I can't help but cry especially if my body does'nt allow me to spend so much time posting articles on my new blog exp…

offline galore!

It's Saturday again! I thought I'll gonna be late again as I only alloted an hour for travel and I remembered that I need to ask SLT to reset my password for a tool we are using to pull up the members account. I came at around 9:52 pm - still have 8 minutes to ask slt to reset my password. SLT was able to give me a new password which only took him 3 minutes - so I was able to log in just in time for the first call. I need to take calls for the whole shift today. I'm just so happy that first I was not late and second, we had so many offline activities today. Yahoo! For the whole shift, I only had 10 calls, hehehe. Petiks mode again. Anyways, had a training for a new tool we need which gave me an hour of offline activity at around 2-3 am. Took calls for around an hour before we took an hour lunch. Took another 3 calls and then we had our meeting for roughly 2 hours...offline again! Also, my gay friend, Mamuya - (we fondly call her Mamu) was sooo nakakatawa. We've decided…

Reviving Back my Faith

Another busy week has passed...and rest day! Only on my restday was I able to post here as I need to recall what had transpired within the week so it takes time. Well...ano nga bang nangyari within the week??? usual, nothing special. Routinary. For 5 days, I would force myself to get up at around 8 pm and work...and on my restday - rest the whole day and blog overnight. Haaayyy... nothing fancy. I hope I could change my routine this week. Its getting boring na. Well, just last Sunday and we went to Waltermart with my mom. Pinasyal namin sya sa newly opened Waltermart here in Munoz and because of time constraint, we went there very early @ 10 am as I still have my shift later. We bought our weekly grocery , window shopping and had a quick lunch with Mama and Jojo. A nice, quick gimmick with my new found barkada. hahaha.

Me and my newfound friend - my mom - strolled till our feet hurts.

Ate gives us monthly budget along with the house rent that she generously pays f…

No I am NOT Addicted...or AM I???

I can't help it. It's like, I really can't last a day without doing it...I don't want myself to be like this but I can't force myself not to love it. I admit...I am now a certified... NET ADDICT!

Yes, it's true. I don't know why I acquired this habbit of spending most of my free time in front of my computer...checking on my blogs, checking on other blogs and finding ways to earn online through the internet. Instead of sleeping and going to places I want to go to before, I spent my 3 rest days updating my blogs and checking on other money making schemes. Haaaay.... I don't know why I love doing it so much and made blogging a part of my daily routine. I hope I won't overdo it. I hope I can still do other things other than being in front of my pc. By the way, our money making scheme is doing very well, but since Jojo is already working full time...I need to buy another computer as he is not able to do his job especially if I am using the computer doi…

Another Month Full of Blessings

Huwaw! At last, it's my off! I was really so excited to work on my blogs... actually, I now have 10 blogs! Mostly blogs that tackles about things that interests me and about my personal life and the others are just sites I handle for a survey company. I am really happy with the ways things are going. There are really a lot of things that you can do to earn money especially if you are fervently looking for it. Actually, in my obsession to earn money through the net, I asked my boyfriend Jojo to quit his job and just stay full time doing online works. So far, so good. In a span of one week, he was able to accumulate $50 from his online work. I am so happy that things are doing great for both of us. We are also planning to put up a small business that Jojo will handle himself. There are tons of things you could do at home to earn extra and we are doing some experiments here. My brother, who is based in Montalban also lost his job and my father as well, who is just staying at home and…

Another Slap, A Goodbye...and a sweet Hello in One Week

I've been slapped by G**gl* again! One of my main blogs with PR2 lost its PR. Maybe because of overwhelming sponsor*ed reviews I've posted in it. Pano nalang ang aking online job?'s a good thing I was able to "strike the iron while it's hot" (hehehehe) and was able to make money online through it for a long time.But the good news is, I had PR1 for Mimilani'es Corner (clap, clap!) I never really had the chance to update this blog regularly and to think that this is just a "very personal blog" and no much visitors...the big G gave importance to it. Thanks so much Google!

Anyways, my close friend Gherj told me that she will be resigning soon to follow her dreams to become a certified programmer. She's into IT and she really wants to go abroad to work. I really can't blame her... especially with our nation's current situation...rice shortage, oil price hike, food shortage, unstable politics....who would'nt want to leave and…

Find Your Own Happiness...

"it takes a lot of courage to release the familiar & seemingly secure,
to embrace the new.... But there is no real security in what is no longer
meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous & exciting,
for in movement there's life & in change there's power..."
- Alan Cohen
This message i've found at Pinky's friendster page struck me...and I totally agree with it. There's no point doing things if you're not happy with point in staying on a your current job when your heart is no longer with it. People don't realize that sometimes. Great people are risk takers and you can't be an achiever if you're too afraid to fail. Even the great scientist Einstein failed so many times before he was able to invent his greatest inventions!

I am so proud of my kumare Maricris. She left her current job for 6 years to follow her dreams in Singapore...she wants to earn more for my inaanak Francesca that's why she applied for a touri…

Goodbye Super Twins!

Why does it seems that since our team was dispersed ... everyone wants to resign and work abroad? Haaay... I thought this is what my teammates wants to have - freedom. They said that our previous coach was so rough on them and very strict that's the reason why they want to join a different team . When our coach applied for lateral transfer in CVG Bacolod - we got the chance to pick the team we want to join. Luckily, our new coach is so understanding and he is so pro-employee... but why does it seems everybody wants to resign all of a sudden? I can't understand. Last night, Ice, one of my closest friend and batchmate told me she wants to resign because she does'nt feel like working anymore...then Gherj, anotehr close friend and teammate...told me she too would take one month vacation out of work and would like to resign as well. Then just today...I heard a sad news.

Just a while ago, my sisterette Ivy handed her resignation to her coach. It was so sudden. I was'nt able …

Lazy Myles

I did'nt come for work today. Besides the fact na parang walang sense na pumasok ako today because of my failing scorecard...medyo im not feeling well din. Sunday lang ang off ko this week and yung next Saturday na. Ewan ko pero lately, I'm beginning to feel this job is not for me...parang hindi na ako masaya like before. I thought, kapag nalipat na kami sa ibang team and we're not under our previous tl...magiging mas maganda na ang lahat. Pero parang hindi na masaya. Parang before, we all have a mother who is very much concerned about our stats and our personal life...and then all of a sudden, nawala na yun. Yeah our new coach is wonderful. He always wants the best for all of us as well, we can do all we want basta hindi mapupuna okey lang. Pero parang kulang parin...I mean, there's no personal touch. Trabaho is trabaho. There is no way we can share with him something about ourselves...everything is very professional. Parang wala kaming madidiscuss sa kanya about our …
