The sticker, Siamese- Here, Kitty Kitty Sticker, as described by Cafepress, are printed on 4mil vinyl using water and UV resistant inks – meaning no fading in the sun or bleeding in the rain. Hehe... promoting... :-)

Of idols and dreams

I am never really fond of commenting on certain local shows I watch on TV. But in this particular case, I can't help it. I make it a point that I catch Philippine Idol.. if not Performance night, (which is on a Saturday and I'm usually not at home), at least on Sunday Elimination night. Today I got that chance to watch the show in its entirety. One of the show's judge, Ryan Cayabyab already expressed his sentiments in regards to voting because of talent and NOT popularity. I know a lot agree that the best singers lost their place in the competition because the not-so-good ones have garnered more votes either based on 'financial resources' or location-based vote monopoly (in this case, Australia). Gusto kong umiyak! when I heard Ken and Jeli sing (I was rooting for Mau, Arms and Pow) ... naku po! kung may gong lang ako na-gong na sila! Tama na!!!!

In between commercial breaks, I channel-surfed to Pinoy Dream Academy. Well, lo and behold. One on 'probatiobary' was Rosita (very 'masa'-appeal) and she was rendering her interpretation of 'Sana'y Wala Ng Wakas'. GOOSEBUMPS! She was soooo gooood! Effortless and the emotion, the feel of the song really gets to your bones! ito dapat and nasa Philippine Idol!

Vacation Leave

I am on vacation leave today till tomorrow. Was supposed to go to Palawan for that much needed rest and 'other matters'. Mama has been there since October started. 'Naglalambing si Lola mo, gusto ng kasama' (Your grandmother wants some company). But because of some unforseen (unfortunate?!?) events at the office... well, sayang.

Spent the day making test reviewers for Andee. It's their 2nd Periodical Exams next week. Diego is getting along pretty well with his new yaya (nanny). Buti naman. Had time checking my mails and my store. Got hooked on playing games on the computer...specifically Rollercoaster Tycoon 3. Grabe, addict to the max!! I started playing this game (after Sim City4) more than a year ago. Ngayon lang ulit kami nag-bonding!

The air's getting cooler and it 'smells' like Christmas already. Well, not much is happening yet.... just a little blah-blah to get something posted hehe. Till next one!

We're all in this together

Barely had 2 hours of sleep yesterday. It was Family Day at St. Scholastica's in Marikina. Had to rush home from work yesterday morning to fetch Andee and take her to school. Was hoping to bring Diego along but since I would had not slept yet, I'm not seeing it as a good idea. The Grade 2-Thrifty class was assigned the color violet as the class official color. It was a nice picture when we arrived at the gymn for the Morning Mass. There was a sea of color-coded second grade classes, from violet, to blue, to yellow, to orange, to green, to pink! Yes, even the dads wore pink! very nice :-). After the Mass was a short program and we all went to the respective venues for each classes' get-together. After brunch, our kids treated us to a special dance number to the tune of 'We're all in this together' from High School Musical.

There were father-daughter and mother-daughter games. I watched Andee while she watched her classmates and their dads. Iba smile niya. I can't make it up if she was happy to watch or just trying to. I knew she wanted to join the games. May bigat and konting sakit sa dibdib sa akin when her classmates lined up hugging their dads in one particular game. She came over to me and hugged me too, muntik na naman ako mapaluha! Fortunately when her name was called, it was a mother-daughter game. We were 2nd place, not bad since she was also able to get her prize. Got home at around 3pm and tried to sleep. May office affair kami that night.

I was waiting for my ride when Andee asked me if I was going to the office. I said yes. "Sinong susundo sa yo?" (Who's gonna fetch you?) I mentioned the name. Andee said "..di kasi magawa ni Papa e" (..coz Papa doesn't do it ).

Natameme ako.

The saddest email..

"Jimmy, Answer me!! Please!"

Peksman! When I received this particular email at work, I cried. No kidding. My team mates thought I was joking. But no! Have you ever heard how loud and shrilling a lost chick calls for his mother hen?
