i love basketball!
eversince i was a kid, we would watch pba games on tv. when i grew up, nba na. then collge days, cemplangan. these days, our office is busy with the inter-department basketball competition. it made me reminisce the days when i was in college when we would cheer for econsoc. having a bet with melvin, that if he scores 30 points, i'll treat him a big mac meal. giving water to the players and also playing the game. yes, i played for our women's basketball team. i even took it for my pr class just to help us win. hehe.
our inter-office tournament is really exciting. especially with our team winning, 5-0. hehehe. the games really made me miss the cemplangan days. especially when we had a close fight with another department, and the players lack water. i was like panicky. i got used when i was in college to assist the players with their water. watergirl baga. because besides the cheer, this is how our committee, who is in charge, can help. what made every game also exciting is the cheer of the audience. the xcheer really can help liven up the players. trust me! hey! am not writing this to justify my cheers. i wrote this entry because i really miss the cemplangan days. especially the support of everyone not only after every wins but also after every loss.

1995 - was in third year highschool and just joined BLD Youth. enjoyed the company of the Youth Ministry, making us active during that time even if we have not taken the LSS yet. summer of 1995, always in the house of Lesley with Ljieu and Arleen. it was just a memorable summer because we would also play what was played during my childhood days like patintero and agawan base. hehe

2000 - was in third year college naman. hehe. was active with Econsoc, syempre. i was the externals affairs head during that time. hehe. so during this time, was busy with coming up and executing fund-raising activities. i remember selling fishballs and getting burned because of the oil and crying because my legs was the one affected. vain talaga. hahaha. february 2000 alumni homecoming, the first major activity of the soc that i spearheaded and was really happy for it's success.

2004 - still a newbie in my present job. was still learning the ropes of being a remedial accounts person. today is november 21, and next week is the wedding anniversary of jopay and marvin, so on this day last year, i guess am trying to find a dress/gown to wear for their wedding. january 2004, my last days in my former company.
st. scho lss 6! i cried when gwadz shared and not on my own sharing. actually it's not with her sharing but when tita embraced her afterwards and i realized it's her last sharing and she'll be leaving soon. :( the people who can make me attend bld activities will be lessened.
as usual, was late for work. sold the cookies of ate france for an hour. and at the same time, nasingitan ng official work. hehe. posted one entry for my blog.
actually, i have no plans yet for tomorrow. i guess i'll just go home early to watch frog prince, hehe. then jog around west triangle to have some exercise.
so, Elaine, Duke and Kim, i hope you'll also go down memory lane... :)
Last Saturday, I shared my life story again to the 2nd year students of St. Scho for their LSS. The introduction for me was I was the Kris Aquino of the Youth Ministry because of my questions.
I was somewhat surprised when Aboy (the one who introduced me) mentioned Kris Aquino. Surprised, because no one in BLD mentioned that even if my other friends kept on comparing me to Kris Aquino.
Yes, I am always likened to Kris Aquino. Not only because of what Aboy said that I ask questions point-blank, and in a joking manner but already serious. But also with the way I speak and act. Honestly I don't think of myself as Kris Aquino, especially with the way I speak. Kris is articulate, while I am a certified barok! Even confirmed by my mom. hehe. No offense to Kris ha. I like her, but I just don't see myself as like her. Parang we're two totally different individuals, I think my sister is more like her. I don't know...

i hate eating alone. when i eat alone, feeling ko kse kawawa ako. parang lonesome or no friends at all. pathetic ba? hehe. that's why when am alone in the mall killing time and i get hungry, i just buy finger food and eat it while walking. para di obvious na loner or something. even when i was in college, if my friends have eaten already, either i won't eat at all or treat ko sila ng something just for them to accompany me while i eat. i only eat alone table sa house.
anyway, last night after office i went to greenbelt to have a confession. why greenbelt when i work in qc? because that's the only church that am sure there's a confession during that time and i don't want in the church near us because my mom knows the priest. then, i was supposed to go with my brother. but just because i called him up 30 minutes late, tinamad na daw sya. (hmmm.. parang nagiging spoiled na si eric ha). anyway, i still went to greenbelt. dati, when i go to makati, i would call up my friends to have dinner with them. but the last time i went to have a confession, i did not call up anyone bgut i saw tin dizon and we had dinner. so i said to myself yesterday.. malamang i'll see someone i know and i could invite him/her for dinner. i saw three people from bld. but i just said hi to them. nahiya ako. they are nice people, but syempre when you see them as a group, it's a different feeling already. basta parang naiiba sila if they're with their friends na. it's just not them ha. actually, almost everyone. don't you feel that way too? you like them as individuals, but when they're grouped together already, awkward feeling na towards them.
anyway, besides them, i did not see anyone anymore. so i just went to powerbooks, got the book that am currently reading there (hehehe), went to jave man and ordered. yup! i ate all by myself. but i did not feel awkward. why? because i am reading a book. it means i still have company. parang di ako kawawa. coz it's like i really wanted to be left alone during that time to finish the book.
end of sharing. nonsense ba? sorry ha.. first time kse that i ate alone in a public place, without feeling pity for myself. hehe :)

WOW! That's how I describe tha party and feelings I had last Saturday.
I'm turning 25 and I want to celebrate my silver birthday, and I want to hold a party for my Econsoc brods and sisses. But it would be expensive since ang dami nila. Great that i have talked to my Econsoc sis Tina when I went to LB last month. We have decided to have a party with the other November bday celebrants. But when I texted them, they cannot commit. Good thing, Emcee also wanted to have one. So with the three of us (Emcee, Tina and I) excited to have a party but with no money, we decided to hold a potluck party. I started to text our brods and sisses on what food they'll bring. Talk about kapal ng mukha. Hehe. Next problem is the schedule. Since BLD have activities for two weekends, I am only free on Nov. 5. This serves as a problem because Nov. 5 is part of the long weekend and it is not yet registration time for the resident members. As I texted Emcee and Tina, last Nov. 2, I was really nervous. because as of that date, more or less only 20 people confirmed their attendance. Still, I was excited.
The Big Day! Those coming from Manila were to meet in Greenbelt. I turned out, there were only three of us. Uh-oh.. Party time is 7pm and the bus left Parksquare 6pm! Haay.. After getting lost in Pansol, we finally arrived in the resort 8pm. But there is only just one person there. Haay... Finally, people started arriving at 9pm. But we still cannot eat since the people I assigned for the plates and utensils, could not make it. So I texted those still arriving and asked them to buy to be paid later. What we thought would be around 20 people, turned out to be 35, mostly alumni. This is far cry to the 300+ members of the org. Still, it was a fun night. What made the party great was that there are those who I have not seen in ages. And everyone there has one goal in mind.. to have fun. And fun we had. The party was flowing with fun, laughter, songs, teasing, food, softdrinks and booze. It was truly a magical night. A night that describes my life with Econsoc.. fun, memorable, special and loved. Yes loved, because once again I felt the love of Econsoc for me. I know I was not the only one celebrating her bday that night, but still I felt the love of Econsoc for me. Thank you ECONSOC! Love ko talaga kayo.
Also, it made me appreciate the unlimited text of Globe (sorry jopay) and YM. But still, naubos load ko kse madami naka-Smart (yihee! happy na si jops). Khet na naubos load ko, okay lang. Load lang yan. But the fun we had during that night.. PRICELESS :)
Pics to follow. Look out for my next entry.. A Disney Princess Birthday Party :)
