A Quick One

Just to let you all know I haven’t died or forgotten about this blog. I actually miss blogging, I swear! Unfortunately, I haven’t had time to do so because of the following reasons:

  1. Work — my newbie days in my new role is over and I’ve gotten very busy and important.
  2. Playing with my new baby! Not an actual baby. I would have let it slip these past nine months if I was carrying anything of note, like a child in my belly. New baby = Fuji Instax Mini 7S.
  3. Helping out on Baby Sam’s baptism (But that’s done now! :D)
  4. Scrapbooking. I’ve finally gotten around to starting on my travel scrapbook.
  5. Catching up on my reading list. It’s atrocious how far behind I’ve gotten!

I’ll be blogging again as soon as I recover all my files (my hard disk decided to die on me) and install Lightroom. XOXO

People Power, 26 Years Later

Yesterday was the 26th anniversary of  People Power, and with our current president the offspring of the two main figureheads of that revolution, it was sure to have been a spectacular celebration. This entry is not a coverage of the celebrations or an introspection on the past 26 post-People Power years. It is merely a post about a rather nice conversation with a cab driver about the (first) EDSA revolution.


Around 6 AM yesterday, Marj and I finally decided to go home from our regular time-wasting after work. (I almost typed “Friday night out”, but ‘night out’ invokes images of booze and dancing or whatever it is that earning people do on a Friday night in their early- to mid-20s.) So I hailed a cab as usual, rather, a cab stopped in front of us and Marj graciously let me have it because as she announced in front of some officemates, I badly need to pee.

Usually, I put on earphones and listen to the music of my own choosing instead of the radio stations that most cab drivers have on (“Kailangan pa bang i-memorize yan?”/”Ambot sa kambing na may bangs!” What does the last one even mean?) but since traffic updates were on, I vetoed against the earphones.

Support my cause!

Help slow down global warming by clicking on my Social Vibe widget, right here on the left sidebar of my blog. You’ve already wasted your time by being in my useless blog, so why not make that wasted time useful (to the environment)?

Coming soon: UK 2011 Vacation Post

Since it’s nearing a month since I got back from London, I figured it’s high time I blogged about it. Should have stuck with the original plan and brought my laptop with me to chronicle my trip more accurately, but yeah, yeah, I get it mom, security and overweight baggages and those other practical things (she was right). Plan B was to blog as soon as I got back, but I was all, “Oh, let me upload all the pics first!” (I’m still not halfway done.)

Anyway, here’s hoping I’ll do it by the 14th!

Help! Click on the Social Vibe badge on my sidebar.

And help send girls in Africa to school through Camfed.

I don’t have a lot of money to spare, and this is one of the things I can do to help and appease the Socio VP that’s still in me. So I implore you, click on the badge. There’s no harm. Please?

Also, if you can, please add a Social Vibe widget on your sidebar. There are a lot of charities to choose from. I had a hard time choosing one.
