merienda time (overcooked spag, home-cooked fried chix, ordinary buko pandan, rellenong bangus, not-so-good paella, tasty beef brocolli and lechon plus del monte 4 seasons) – good enough for a merienda that’s libre.

happy eaters!

 

It was a fun-filled day. Sobrang entertaining esp. the Bikini Open Dinggas/Fairy Edition part. Nice place, spacious, clean and looks safe. Ansaya mag overnight swimming dun. Naaliw ako dun talaga sa 2 dinggas. Ang kulet nila. Ang galing mag pose at very spontaneous yung Q&A part. There were 5 judges and both of them got 5 questions each. It was like watching Allan K. and Pooh together. Ang sakit ng lalamunan ko kakatawa at kakasigaw. Here are some famous lines I got from the Q&A:

 

contestant #2 – “I do believe that black is beautiful but over black is CHARCOAL” — pointing Contestant #1 being blacker than he/she is.

 

“Ang Dyosang nagmula sa langit, bumaba sa lupa, ang nagpatibok sa puso ni Martin Nievera, Pops Fernandez!”

 

Kung ikaw ay isang halaman, ano ka?“Kung ang kamatis nakakapagpalinaw ng mata, ang talong, nagpapatirik ng mata” …therefore, talong daw sya.

 

Who is your ideal person ?“my mother is my best ideal person”

 

What is your best spiel with your irate customers?“Thank you for calling blah blah….my name is…”

 

Paano ka makakatulong sa ekonomiya ng ating bansa? — “Alam nyo naman na kaming mga Dinggas, ayaw naming magka-anak, so dun palang nakakatulong na kami sa populasyon…”

 

Congrats to Anthony and Shawie for winning the Bikini Open. ESCA rocks! Yeay! Kahit na I had to work that night and I haven’t had enough rest to make it through the day, attending the Fun Day was worth it.

Terible ang summer ngayon. Sobrang HOT!!! Kaya naman ang sarap mag swimming!!!! To mah blogger friends, mag swimming na tayo. Daliiiiiii!!

I laughed so hard, I almost died laughing at myself

The Following Pictures May Be Disturbing To Some Viewers/Readers. Excessive laughing is NOT recommended.

Wahahahaha. Reminiscin’ the glory days of 80’s. I looked and felt so vintage. Really. It made me so nostalgic about a time when I was merely 5-6-7 years old. A time when MENUDO was the Backstreet Boys then, when ACID WASH was the coolest and hippest jeans, when gigantic shoulder pads were born and to compliment it, one must have gigantic teased hair, when CURLY/FRIZZY bangs were the IN thing…grabeh! The list could go on forever basta I’m loving the glamour of 80’s! Naalala ko ang pag-DA-DALAGITA ko. Wahhaha.

Bigla kong na-miss ang mga childhood friends…at mga kapitbahay sa Malanday (Valenzuela City) pati yung mga classmates ko sa AFES (Andres Fernando Elementary School Batch 1986-1992). If you, by any chance, remember me (ako nga to, MALEN/MALENTOD — yung anak ni Aling Pida and Mang Pol na may tindahan dati sa may 441 Bartolome st. Malanday V.C.) drop a comment or your email or any contact number so we could meet up one day. It’ll be nice to see some of you again.

Yeah, everyone who saw these pix can’t help themselves from laughing outrageously. And I have this feeling na ako ang pinaka nakakatawa sa aming 5. From posings to hairdo to outfit…so 80’s! Dontchathink?

A man who never retires

He worked right up to the day he died at the age of 92. Truly remarkable. It was a life lived to the fullest. A life worth living. A good life lived for others. Imagine living more than half of your lifetime doing work in the office. 56 long years to be exact. I don’t even know if I would still live up to that age. But your strength and hardwork are amazing!

This morning, I was assigned to monitor the CMS in the office and it took all my powers to make it through the rest of the day. I was so so tired to death. Partly because I also didn’t get enough sleep the night before. But this day is extremely tiring and stressful. And it made me want to quit this job I have been doing for years (4.5 years). IN fact, I wanted to RETIRE from working ASAP. But your persistence made me realize a lot of things. All of us are born with a reason, but all of us don’t discover why. Success in life has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It’s what you do for others, your family, your friends, your colleagues. You just inspire me to do good with my craft and to continue doing it as long as I can. Saludo po ako sa inyo Sir P.A.O. (Lizzie’s Papang/Lolo).
