It’s really beautiful and inspiring whenever I see women who know how to rock a guitar, especially a T-Bird bass guitar. They just look so cool and chic and sexy. Makes me want to be like them when I grow up! LOL
I honestly want to learn even a single piece of musical instrument, but how to when I’m never musically gifted at all! When God poured in talents, I was probably sleeping or too busy doing something else. Why oh why nobody woke me up?! All I can ever do is admire and enjoy as I listen to their music. Anyway it’s okay, maybe in my next lifetime, I could do even better.
“I’ve been a deep believer my whole life. 18 years as a Southern Baptist. More than 40 years as a mainline Protestant. I’m an ordained pastor. But it’s just stopped making sense to me. You see people doing terrible things in the name of religion, and you think: ‘Those people believe just as strongly as I do. They’re just as convinced as I am.’ And it just doesn’t make sense anymore. It doesn’t make sense to believe in a God that dabbles in people’s lives. If a plane crashes, and one person survives, everyone thanks God. They say: ‘God had a purpose for that person. God saved her for a reason!’ Do we not realize how cruel that is? Do we not realize how cruel it is to say that if God had a purpose for that person, he also had a purpose in killing everyone else on that plane? And a purpose in starving millions of children? A purpose in slavery and genocide? For every time you say that there’s a purpose behind one person’s success, you invalidate billions of people. You say there is a purpose to their suffering. And that’s just cruel.”
This is the long and winding road to my beautiful barriosiete! As mentioned earlier, I am taking a very long break from working…I went to SG for 3 mos, stayed in Manila for 2 weeks…and now spending the rest of my break here in my barrio trying to set new goals and plan my life. You know I could stay here for a long time! I wish to do great things here when I settle for good…hindi muna ngayon… Sana 2-3 yrs from now… we’ll have a more stable internet connection and electricity here
This is exactly the view just outside my window. Sooo refreshing. I am blogging live straight from my Barriosiete!!! Thank you POWERSURF15!!! Horrayyy to being jobless! I am on my 4th month of unemployed….i am soo broke but surprisingly..i am still very happy. I feel relaxed more than ever. Naka recharge ako ng bongga! I feel very empowered haha. I quit working last March because I had to. I will not elaborate the details pero nothing serious.. I love my previous job and the people that i work with…but there are times you need to do what you gotta do dahil walang reason hahahhaha I look forward to a more exciting adventure in the coming days. See you again…corporate world!
3 more nights to accomplish everything. I am half-excited half-frightened.
I shall start packing my clothes tomorrow. Done processing all the documents. I just need to print and photocopy whetever’s necessary. I want to remain hopeful and positive. Grateful to so many people (I have the nicest and kindest and coolest boss!) and for all the opportunities! Here’s wishing to a brighter future, lots of moolahs and many more happy memories!
I initially called their customer service number 855-9000 to inquire about the re-booking process. The rep told me to go to Airphil Ticketing Office to pay 1344 pesos for the rebooking fee. Kelangan sa ticketing office ang transaction ng rebooking. I don’t have a choice but to go there. So I went to Airphil Cubao Office (tapat ng Farmers Cubao) to rebook my flight thinking that I only had to shell out 1344P.
Prior to going there, I clearly asked the customer rep if there were additional charges, hidden charges etc. He said it’s fixed. He didn’t told me that….
…eto ang beginning ng kalbaryo.
Arrived at 4PM, serving #817….mine was #874. Ang ineet. Walang aircon. Some people who went before me gave up their numbers already. It’s already past 7pm when my number got called. From #860, naging #874 because a lot of people lined up went home already. Napakabagal kasi ng serbisyo. I can understand that. Pero sana magdagdag sila ng staff, at maglagay ng aircon. Sobrang init sa loob ng office nila at ang dumi (ang arte hehe). Ampanget! Parang
When I was ready to pay, they’re charging me 4K+ for rebooking my flight back to Manila. Whaaaaat! Akala ko 1344? The rep told me clearly it’s only 1344! I waited 3++ hrs to pay 1344P!!! Yun lang ang kaya ng budget ko. May adjustment daw sa pamasahe plus penalty which is 1344P. So penalty lang pala yun 1344. New ticket purchase costs 2500++. Much much cheaper! Parusa much ano ba! Mag RORORO na lang ako! Nanghihinayang ako sa ticket. At nanghinayang ako sa oras na ginugol ko dun. Haaaay I wasted my time and effort. That’s 4 hrs of my life that I’ll never get back bec that rep gave me the wrong info!!! If I had know beforehand na there are other charges, hindi ko na sana inabala ang sarili ko na pumila noh! Napaka-incompetent lang ng Customer Service ng Airphil!!!
So my advice when rebooking a flight: BUMILI NA LANG NG BAGONG TICKET.
I like this cover so much. The editing, the colors and the simplicity plus the audio quality, looks very pro. How can they make nice video and covers like that? They must be using top of the line video and audio equips and vocal harmonizers from tc helicon at Guitar Center. This is MTV quality right here! Her voice, oh my! She’s so talented!!! She can sing, play the guitar and piano. She also plays the trumpet and flute! Woooow, I can’t even master D-A-G-A guitar chords haha. And the only piano piece I know is HPBD lols! I wanna be ClaraC when I grow up!
Am I living a well lived life? I have sooo many things I want to do in mind but it always feels like I lack the courage to fulfill them everytime. I am happy! Really happy with what I have in my life right now – family, friends and work…but something’s always missing. No, it’s not God or life partner. Basta something is missing. I don’t know. Basta I want to do something great and noteworthy for the people in my barriosiete. Sounds charot haha pero trulili. I wanna be able to help as much as I can.
I realized, no person, situation, event or possession can give you this kind of fulfillment.
Every moment is an opportunity to do something great. Make full use of your days while you’re alive, and do wathever you can to live a well lived life. Sana ma-apply ko yan sa life ko!
