Nothing To Write About

Wow...I guess nothing's been going on with my life lately. I don't really have anything to talk about. I should prolly embrace this time in my life

OhOh Here We Go Again

This time it's more "official"...the transfer opportunity for a different job within my workplace has come up today. Do I stay or do I go?
Take the road travelled more than less than 46% of the time
Well to take away the drama of this post, the e-mail regarding the transfer was sent to the entire workplace at 2:14pm. After taking some time to think about it, I responded with an "I'm interested" at 2:16pm.
Now it's the waiting game yet again. Dammit, just when I was getting comfortable again in my old spot. Holy restless

Alice Fazoodled

My cousin Corinna from Seattle (originally from Vaughn) was in this week, and we went to Alice Fazooli's for dinner. Holy expensive! But that's okay, she's not in town much more and it was a good special occasion.
She's an interesting person (of the holistic medicine type) and is currently trying to have a baby. Prolly won't help that the baby she gives birth to will be the same weight as her (she's a stick-thin 33 year old woman). Okay, bad joke

One Class To Go

And what did I learn in my Filipino class? Some, but not as much as I want to. Oh well, I'm not surprised though what with having a pretty bad teacher.

Isa lang!

A New Tradition?

Bowling and Steak on my birthday. Today marked the innagural year that I did this (yes, steak again).
And what did I get from my baby for my birthday? Clamps! Awesome gift...I'm gonna go clamp stuff now

Look at that Pinching Power
The guy at Sears even commented, "it takes a special kind of woman to buy a man clamps for his birthday"

Damn I'm Old

Well, not that old, but now I'm officially past my mid-twenties (half past mid-twenties?). Woke up this morning and watched Shooter with Con.
"You are making me...furrow my eyebrow"

Not a bad movie; your general action-packed-suspend-your-belief kind of movies.
Then Sharon and I went to see some dressmaker in Scarborough, followed by a dinner with Lawrence and Lavita at East Side Mario's, where I swear I had one of the best steaks I've ever had (yes, I realize the oddity of going to East Side Mario's for steak, of all things). As a result, yup...I'm busting out the pic:

garble garble mrahhhhhhhh
I think I'm going to make it a yearly tradition that on my birthday I will eat a steak dinner. Yes, I think that's a great idea.
And then we went to a fam jam where Corinna's home for a week. Then to my place and just relaxed with Sharon.
Just realized something: this time last year, it was my last moments of being single. Wow...I can't seem to imagine that anymore, nor do I think I want to.

Keep On Going

Keep On Moving...
That's what I'm constantly telling myself as I am dying while running outside today for the first time this year. Good run, although my thighs started chafing again. Argh

When I Sell Out, I Sell Out Big

First of all, I can't believe I sold out and joined Facebook. But hell, since I joined it, I've become quite the sellout. I try my hardest not to log on so often, but I inevitably do. It's like a form of voyeurism...damn, I'm a pervert.
* * *
I'm trying to learn about furnaces and whatnot, but it's more complicated than I thought! I think I'm getting too excited about owning a house with Sharon; I even am planning to buy hardwood floors without even knowing how much I need. I better take a step back and wait just a bit. And I also have to realize that we don't have the money for all the things we want. Prioritize!
* * *
Got the new Robin Thicke album. Damn Jason Seaver made some talented kids

Big Sigh Of Relief

Like you wouldn't believe

Tuesday, March 20, 2007


So I tried a new sport that I think I really like and want to take up: Curling! Kiri, Kathie, Mikey, Sarah and I tried our hand at it for the first time today for a work event. Who would've thought it would be so fun! Well I sort of did, but it was good times. Mikey, Sarah and I even did our Filipino joke of instead of yelling "HURRY HARD!" we yelled "WALESE!" (which means sweep in Filipino). We figured if anyone knew how to sweep, it would be us domesticated Filipinos.
Kathie and I are even thinking of joining a league. We'll see.

At this point she realized: she should've worn underwear

Taglog Is A Hard Language

Seriously, very hard to learn. Who would've thought?

Feelin' so helpless, don't know what to do, wish I could change things, instead of cryin' boohoo

No, it's not another movie like 300; rather, according to that is my IQ.
Basically, I had to tally how many correct answers I got out of 60 questions. I had 46 questions correct. Sharon told me she had 55 questions correct!!! Only to find out...she added her score wrong and actually had 45 questions correct for an IQ score of 117 (as opposed to the 136 she at first thought she had...needless to say that whole incident made me laugh for a little while. Superior IQ indeed).
Both of us are considered "Above Average IQ" which is great and all, but you know, and I don't mean to gloat or anything (but I will, naturally), I do have a higher IQ than her. Now, I ain't saying she's a gold digger, but I don't see her messin' with no...average IQ man. Just saying.


...check! And while in Downtown, Sharon and I almost got killed. Well, thoughts of being the next Jane Creba anyway. After eating some of the most delicious hot dogs I've ever eaten (at Frankz, beside Salad King), we were at the stop light on Gould St. turning left on Yonge St when Sharon pointed out a fight happening.
I looked to my left and these three gangbangers were trying to fight this one homie. The one guy did pretty well for himself, even dragging one of the guys through the ice/snow before letting him go and reaching for something on his belt while getting closer to my car. At that moment, all I thought was...great. Luckily, he was reaching for his cell phone and he ran towards Yonge St., where a lot of Police were (due to the St. Patrick's Day parade) and the light turned green. Interestingly, no PoPo stopped him. Man I hate violence like that. Makes my stomach churn.
And people wonder why I like the suburbs that much. Not to say it's way safer, but, well, I think it is.
Oh and as for the rings, it fits quite nicely :)

Only 298 More Times

Till I watch 300 300 times. It's just as good the second time around!

I'm Getting That Feeling

That feeling that with approximately 55 days left until my 10km race, that I won't be doing too well. Why that feeling? Well considering my training has been lackadasical at best and I'm hurting whenever I try to start it, it's not a good sign.
Enough of this complaining though, I gotta actually try every once in a while. No more junk food! (yeah, right)

No Meat Friday's

During Lent, I still observe that practice of not eating red meat or chicken on Friday's (seafood is allowed for some peculiar reason). Apparently that's been abolished and you're allowed to eat meat, just not on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. But I've been doing it (the best I could) my whole life and I didn't exactly "give up" anything for Lent. So I continue to do it.
Surveying my workmates who are Catholic, it's a mixed answer. Some said "what's the point if you still have a fish feast, when really it's supposed to be about fasting?" Others said, "well, I didn't hear anything, so I continue not to eat meat on Friday's" One even said, "if you're over 60 it's allowed."
In the end, one day without meat shouldn't be hard to do irregardless of religious reasons. But then the more I shouldn't do it, the more I want it. I'm only human.

...after about 4-5 months, I've finally cleaned the inside of my car. It's always so refreshing. At the same time, it's also so painful to watch it slowly but surely get dirty again

S n' S Day

A great day. Greater if only I could partake. Sigh.

Happy Marriage D-Teng

Went to Diana and Brian's Chinese wedding at Don Huang Restaurant. Good stuff, good company, good luck (to the couple!). My baby looked hot...

Saturday, March 10, 2007


...woah. :D
* * *
Went to see 300 with KenKen. Needless to say, I want to be a Spartan now.

Yarghhhh...I'm eh pirate
Unfortunately I don't think I have:
1. The body for it
2. The intestinal fortitude to be one (unless you count my fortitudeness stomach as intestinal fortitiude)
3. The facial hair
4. The athletecism to be one
5. The willingness to walk around in public to what amounts to nothing more than sandals, a thong and a cape
But whatever the case, a great movie!

Yes, I've said it many times over, "I'm not going to ever join Fagbook. Maybe if there was a Boobbook."
And now? I just went all gay. Dammit! I fell for the hype. So sad...because spending 3+ hours a day on the Internet is not enough time, so I opted to go to a website that would increase that time.
Looks like I'll have to get ready for all the barbs from all the people I told I won't join.

Why Mother...Why?!?

As I've said multiple times, my parents can be funny people. Sometimes though, the funniest turns to outright horror (at least on my part). Witness this dinnertime conversation today:
Me: You gave up eating meat on Wednesday's now?
Gil: Just for Lent
Mom: Your Father gave up sex for Lent
No one needs to hear that; especially your children (no matter how old they are). Needless to say, I was not hungry after that.

In This Excrutiating Course

I'm taking a Microsoft Outlook course at work right now. For a whole day. One hour alone was spent on how to send an e-mail.
I'm dying here. Why do I do this to myself?
* * *
I just had a very bitter orange/grapefruit (orangefruit?). I hate the bitter taste. If there was no bitter taste buds on my tongue, I think I would approximately 2908972 times happier. Maybe (duh) this explains why I don't particularily like alcoholic drinks. I'm very sensitive.
How much do I not like bitterness? I just took a straight shot of sugar (from a sugar package used for coffee).

Sometimes You Want Something Really Badly

You think about it for a long time, you want it to come true, but then it doesn't happen.
Oh well.

Pork N' Beans N' Vienna Sausages

Not the best mix for dinner, but I had it anyway. Needless to say, I won't be having that type of dinner again. Ever.
And the pork in the "Pork n' Beans"? Yeah...right...


So I watched this awesome movie just now:

No love without the PowerGlove
For you '80s babies, you might remember this movie from your youth. I certainly did cause I thought it was one of the best movies ever growing up.
Of course now, I realize it was nothing but a marketing ploy for Nintendo. But whatever...any movie that has the superior thespian skills of Kevin Arnold is good with me.
Among the highlights of the film:
-that kid that only said, "California...California..." I remember when I was in California and I saw those dinosaurs. I felt like I was part of the movie
-when the oh-so-cool Lukas brought out the PowerGlove in a metal container (!). Then he proceeded to use it. Afterwards, he says, "I love the PowerGlove." Which prompted Kevin Arnold to say the spectacular line, as he put his arm around the white trash girl: "Well as long as you don't put your PowerGlove on her." Awesome, simply awesome
-the white trash girl screaming in the Casino "HE TOUCHED MY BREASTS!!!" which got the attention of the security guards and hauled the bounty hunter (!) away
-a Black Trucker named Spankey
-a retarded kid that is exceptional at video games, finding "secret passages" in a game that has never been played before to that point (Super Mario Bros. 3). Obviously realism is not a big selling point in this movie. Then again, I may be retarded to actual be looking for realism in a movie like this
So after not watching it for like 15 years, it was a blast from the past.
I'm old.

Sooner Or Later

A house will pop up. Until then, it's purely just a waiting game. An annoying one, at that.
* * *
Gonna party it up tonight at West 50 for Tabico's birthday. Should be interesting.

Oh damn, I just realized I ate meat today inadvertantly (I honestly forgot). Does this mean I can eat meat for the rest of the day now?

Longest Drive Ever

Usually it takes me about 20-25 minutes to drive home. But with today's freak snowstorm, it took me 1.25 hours. And on top of that, there are always stupid people who don't know how to drive in the snow.
I did find it funny all the people with rear wheel drive cars having crazy problems trying to get up even the slightest hill. I especially laughed at the BMW driver who probably thought he was "da bomb" in his snazzy mobile, only to get outdriven by a cheap Toyota Echo. What!

The Vitz is on top for a reason...yee-uh
