Happy Happy New Year!!!

System Time: 5:17 PM

Wow, 2007 na ba talaga? Happy New Year to everyone! Hopefully, I'll be able to post this blog with pictures of stuff we did on the holidays.

Ei.. got a new bike! K a t u w a. it's pink. (bleh@jane) Yesterday we went to the park. The boys stayed at the court to play basketball, tas kami ni Anshe ikot ikot to bike. Sandali lang, kasi parang uulan na eh, pero sana maulit hehe. Ngayon ko lang nalaman na hindi pala ako marunong magbike harharhar. I can't turn on my right. (sorry, cannot pala) Puro kaliwa lang.. i dunno, i guess its something to do with how comfortable I feel shifting my weight on the left haha. Ewan, basta, marami na akong muntik madisgrasya dahil sa pagturn haha.

Anyway, back in the office, katamad parin. My TL is here na, from his vacation. Isa lang comment ko. Katakot siya. AS in. it's probably his demeanor, he's scary. and he expects me to know what he's talking about right away. Hay. Sabi nila ganun talaga siya. Scary parin. I can easily imagine kung pano siya magagalit. wahaha. Baka manginig na lang tuhod ko.

Onga pala, ang corny ng new year dito. I think the fireworks was at Marina square lang. Or someplace else. Basta, hindi kasi kami umalis, nagluto sila housemates again. So ang dami naming foodie hehe. Meh leche flan pa at Maja c/o Anshe. ang sarap gwabe. Pwede gawing career nila TP hehe. So order keyu samen, okey? lolz. Back to the fireworks, there was a show televised for the countdown at Vivo City, tapos ano buh, alang fireworks. WATDA? asa TV tas alang fireworks? parang party poppers lang ata ginamit kainish. Kakamiss talaga pinas. Nung tumawag mga housemates namin sa pinas, hindi na magkaintindihan dahil sa ingay nung paputok. Samen dito, kami lang ang maingay! lol! Sinarado nga namin pinto kasi nagvivideoke kami, baka ipapulis pa kami sa ingay hahaha. We still tried to follow some tradition, (syempre ako tumatalon parin ako haha, umaasa pang tumangkad? ano buh.) like yung 13 bilog na fruits. Grabe uh. Naka 20 dollar ako kagad dun, lol. Ang mahal, prutas lang hehe. Tag da-dalawa lang binili ko uh, umabot parin ng 20 dollar. Bakit nga ba ulit 13 na bilog? hehe.

30 minutes na lang uwi na ako. (woohoo!) titigan ko na lang ulit Monitor ko dito.

Happy New Year to all ulit!

ano buh, tinype ko kanina sa month eh "December", hehe. January na nga pala. I wanna go home sa February! Basta, come what may,uuwi ako sa Chinese New Year. Monday and Tuesday, holiday yun, so sana makadagdag ako ng 1 pang araw. Still waiting for my manager, though, don't want to ask my TL, he's too scary hehe.

Text messages -

Me: "Dadi anu mga bago mong dvd?"

Daddy: "MARAMI"

Me: "Anu anu nga. Inaantuk aku e hehe. Meh bagong series or koreanovela?"

Daddy: "LA BAGO KOREAN MARAMI ENGLISH ASA QUIAPO KO NGAYON MAMAYA NA LANG"

hehe. kasalukuyan palang bumibili eh hehe! go daddy! still have to find a way for me to bring/copy all those dvds here in SG. I don't want to convert, it takes too long. I want somethign that lets me copy directly from dvd to harddisk and will let me play it from the hd.

System Time: 5:01 PM

yey lapit na ko uwi. still got nothing to do. I wrote a very late christmas list to help keep me awake. I was awaken by how long it is, harhar. I remember back sa pinas, 5k ang budget ko, para sa LAHAT na yun,lol! kaya ko kayang gawin yun? i don't think so kasi si daddy humihingi ng wireless headphone na meh noise reduction ek ek so 100dollar na siguro kagad yun haha! Anyway, speaking of daddy, i called him up (nainip na ako, gusto ko ng malaman kung ano anong dvd meron siya) and he said meh MI3 daw, the new Pirates movie, Rocky 6 at marami pang iba. Will definitely have to google pano yung easiest way to copy those sa harddisk and be able to play them directly sa HD without converting them to divX or something. Baka alam nyo, leave me a message uh. There's a box (dunno what it's called) we saw sa Funan Mall, looks like it'll be the solution. Parang cover siya ng harddisk tas meh video out ek ek siya (about 100sgd) baka yun yun. still have to research for it.

TGIF!! can't wait to ride my bike hahaha. or to sleep! or to watch Youtube! wahaha kala mo kung ano ang plano eh. We saw a condo ad (irene showed us, demmit irene, lol! joke!) that sounds like a good deal, 1200 for a 2bedroom condo unit. waaaaah, kung kelan nagdecide na kami na tapusin na namin yung april before lumipat (para hindi kami magipit sa pera) tapus papakita samen yun waaah can't help na masayangan. tsk tsk. anyhoo. next time na lang talaga, salamat parin irene, at least alam namin na posible talagang meh mura-murang condo pa rin. Tama si jane, super taas na nga ng rent, as in nakakainis. there's no real good reason for them to spike up the rent. nambibwisit lang tlga sila hehe. ang layo ng tinaas kasi, mga hdb, parang condo na ang prices, bwiseeet.

next week, i'll be having some company (finally). some students are coming over as interns and they'll be occupying the cubicles in my area. meanwhile i've been going over to THEIR area, and just dilly-dallying there until someone calls me where i could watch them work some problems.

System Time: 4:48 PM

almost time to go home! every friday, we're allowed to go home 1 hour earlier than usual (yahoo!) i'll try to catch the 5:20 bus.

System Time: 5:00 PM

i know now how much exactly it costs me to go to the office every morning... it's 3.15 SGD. (mahaaal!) i thought i wouldn't make it cause i only had 3.7 in my ezlink card, good thing you get a rebate when you transfer from the mrt to the bus (50 cents! wow! haha! babaw!). Now i'll have to buy a single journey ticket 'cause i only have 5 dollars with me. you can only top up a minimum of 10 dollars in the card. at least i was able to make it here in the office! so i probably spend about 5 dollars each day for transpo.. (including office to home) it's cheaper pag pauwi because of the company bus.

awhile ago i had an informal training from one of the people here.. he's indian and such a faaast talker. i could barely understand what he was saying, not to mention he was like eating his words. arrggh. he asked me "do you have any questions?" i could only say "nope". you know the meaning of that, right? its either you didn't understand one little thing or you understood it all. i'm afraid in my case it was the former. wahaha. i asked him to send me the powerpoint slide so i hope that helps.

will post this blog already. with pictures! have a happy weekend guys!!
