The New Tin-tin

when i saw my friends recently, i can only hear one comment.. "you're getting thin." but a former officemate who have seen me years ago and i have not seen for a while had a different remark: "tin, what happened? you're getting big." i can't blame her. coz i'm really bigger now. but compared with the past months or last year, i'm really getting smaller. yehey! and next week, i'll really try to slim down more. i have a goal now. and i think more than ever, it's only now that i'm really determined to slim down. when will i be satisfied? if i can see my collarbone. bwahaha. or just to be like in the picture again...

i can't find a better picture. sorry. hehehe. basta starting tomorrow, i'll be disciplined so i will lose weight. i still can't accept that i weigh more than eric. and to think that he's taller than me. and he's the one who's eating all the food in our house. waah!

oh well.. goodluck tin-tin. especially now that i don't have to walk far just to get a cab. i just hope i'll be successful. no, i'm not hoping that i'll be successful. i know that i'll be successful. hahaha

Another Survey

as my Multiply contacts are aware of, most of the time I would get to read about their post after 6(?) months. hehehe. and this is one of those I've just read recently which was posted by Ate Mei last January pa. hehe. sorry if my posts recently have been more of surveys.

1. Is it difficult for you to look into someone's eyes when you are telling them how you feel?
= kind of. i don't know. i have problem in concentrating to just look in one's eyes. i need to look at other things because i always need distractions. and that doesn't mean i'm not telling the truth ha

2. You are on a flight from Honolulu to Chicago non-stop. There is a fire in the back of the plane. You get enough time to make ONE phone call. Who would you call?
= either my mom or my sister

3. You are at the doctor's office and she has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live. (A) Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die? (B) What do you do with your remaining days? (C) Would you be afraid?

A = hmmm... this i don't know. i could possibly tell people so that they would become nice to me. hahaha. and sometimes when you announce it, it doesn't happen. so my life would be extended pa

B = i'll call everyone i know and invite them to one big farewell party. i would write a thank you and goodbye post. i would just like to see everyone who had been part of my life. and of course go to confession

C = no way. i guess i would even be excited to see God

4. You can have one of the following two things: trust/love.
= i think it's a package deal when you have love. because if you love, you truest.

5. You are walking down the street on your way to work. There is a dog drowning in the canal on the side of the street. Your boss has told you if you are late one more time you get

fired. What do you do?
= same with ate mei. i'll ask someone to help. the dog might bite me. hehe

6. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
= london. i don't know, that's the first thing that came to my mind. but i'll be okay even if it's just amanpulo just as long as i'll be able to relax. hehehe

7. Think of the last person who you really knew that died. You have the chance to give them 1 hour of life back, but you have to give one year of your life. would you?
= i absolutely would.

8. Are you the kind of friend that you would want to have as a friend?
= i guess. coz i think i'll be lucky to have me as a friend.

9. Does love = sex?
= nope. two entirely different things

10. Your best friend dies, what would you do?
= cry malamang. iyakin na kse ako. help in preparing for the services. and same with ate mei, i'll slightly be envious coz nasa heaven na siya

11. When and how was the last time you told someone HONESTLY how you felt?
= honestly feel? ummm... am not really sure. maybe last week

12. What would be harder for you, to tell someone you love them or that you do not love them back?
= that i don't love them back

13. What do you think would be the hardest thing for you to give up?
= hmmm... i really can't think of anything

14. Excluding romantic love, when was the last time you told someone you loved them?
= recently. coz i always tell my friends that i love them especially if i really feel them to be a blessing

15. If you had to go back in time and change one thing, if you HAD to, even if you had "no regrets" what would it be?
= really big secret. but also could be school for college. i don't regret going to uplb, especially since i really enjoyed my college life and my friends from there are really the best things that happened to me. but sometimes i ask myself what if we have sticked to the original plan of me studying in manila. i'm sure my life now would entirely be different and that's what i'd like to know

16. Imagine. It is a dark night, you are alone, it is raining outside, you hear someone walking around outside your window. Who do you call?
= my mom. coz she's just beside me. yup, i now sleep beside my mom. hehe.

17. Would you give a homeless person CPR if they were dying?
= i don't know how to do a CPR

18. Are you old-fashioned?
= old-fashioned in what sense?

19. Which would you choose, true love with a guarantee of a heart break or have never loved before?
='tis better to have loved and lost, than to not have loved at all - i just have to agree

20. Would you love someone who completes you or someone who loves you completely?
= someone who loves me completely... coz i think it would follow that i'll be more complete :)


one of the main topics during our Mindoro trip was our Non-Negotiables when looking for a boyfriend/girlfriend. and this has been a constant topic recently with my friends. nd last friday, when i went out with the wakieboardies (i really missed you guys), this had been brought up again and again.

anyway, for me.. my non-negotiable is not to date an ex of a friend. maybe not really an ex but someone my friend got involved with in the past. that's why dino and tristan has no chance for me. sorry. hahaha.

how about you? what's your non-negotiables? for those who are already married, what were your non-negotiables before?

Ralph and Thinz, before you tell me that there are no non-negotiables and your requirements would be disregarded if you become inlove.. i'll agree to that.. but as much as possible, you try to stick to this non-negotiables.and i am sure, somehow we all have our own non-negotiables.

Friendship Never Ends (Thank You)

For my 27 years of existence in this world, it is only this year that I have experienced my lowest point. And I'm sure a lot of people would be surprised to hear this. 2008 had been a very different year for me. There had been memories for this year (Anawangin, Mindoro, dinner with friends), but there had been more of sad memories. Actually, it's just shallow but they affected me deeply. So how did I survive? How did I cope with my depression mode? It's thru my friends. There had been friends who I see once in a while that puts a smile on my face. But there are two groups in my friends list who had been there listening to my sad talks and made me laugh, comforts, understands and tried to be supportive. They are the Wakieboardies and the Angels.

They are special mentions because they are the ones I text or write when something is bothering me. They would just listen, sometimes has a comment but the important thing is they listen. That's why thank you my dear friends. You just don't know how much you've helped me to be sane.

Wakieboardies, I hope there'll be another out-of-town trip for us. Thank you for the pamorningan sessions. And for the spontaneous meet-ups. The emails, everything. I also hope people would not feel out of place when they're with us. Hahahaha. I just can't believe that one trip would make us bond like this.

Angels, I miss you girls. I don't know why I had been quiet. Even if I would really love to reply to your messages (text or ym), I really controlled myself not to. And I don't know why. Nagpapamiss. hahaha. Kay Papa Abet lang ako nagreply when he got back to Manila. Hehe. Hope to see you soon and I hope I can join again sa out of town trip nyo.

But to all my other friends who I have talked to this year, my new friends who I just met.. thank you. In your little ways, you've also helped me. Thank you!


Jassy, I don't have kilig kwentos. But when I have, that would be my next post. Yup, contrary to popular belief, I don't have any kilig stories. Tin, okay na? Hehe.

Breakfast, Anyone?

when at home, i don't eat breakfast. for me, breakfast would just be drinking milk. but i would love to have breakfast with friends especially before reporting for work. it is okay with me to wake up extra early just to have breakfast with friends before going to work. it is my dream to do that. that is why i am thankful to dino coz he made that dream a reality when he suggested to have breakfast before when he had a thing in ortigas. and the reason why i was so envious when abet's angels has breakfast in makati.

lately, i've been having breakfasts with my college buddies. but it's not the usual breakfast where you wake up early. we had breakfasts because it's already 6am and we are still together. haay..

so why am i writing this? well, the sagada peeps had breakfast this morning. also, it's just that i am hoping to have breakfast with the angels one of these days. or with a friend before i start the day at work. i think it will be a great start of the day. unwinding before the stress kicks in. huh? what? hahaha. sorry for this nonsense post. i just have nothing to write.

hope everyone will have a great june :)
