I was trapped! Literally!

Last saturday started out with a headache, I woke up from a late friday night slumber after watching the movie "Beowulf" which disgusted the hell out of me(the violence). Let us return to the headache, so when i woke up, i slept for another hour to lose the headache. I had everything planned for that day, go out with my dad for the whole day and go home at night, then have an early sleep. So we went on with the plan, me and my dad went to the Megamall in ortigas and ate great food, shopped, dined, and played games in the arcade, fun fun fun! :) It already seems like a perfect planned day when around 9 in the evening, i was left alone in the room when the door knob became stucked! I had to call out help because i don't have any tools that could possibly open the door, i tried using the card trick, inserting a plastic card at the edge of the door hoping that the door will open, but i tell you this 3 times! it wont work! it wont work! it wont work! To summarize the happening, i called out help, everybody tried to open the door, my auntie climbed up from the second floor, through the fire escape to my room in the third floor to help me (she brought tools!), we spent around an hour, and ended up with my door sliced(the part of the door knob)... now my door has no lock and it has a hole perfect for peeping.

Gates of Heaven

It got crowded in heaven, so, for one day it was decided only to accept people who had really had a bad day on the day they died. St. Peter was standing at the pearly gates and said to the first man, "Tell me about the day you died."
The man said, "Oh, it was awful. I was sure my wife was having an affair, so I came home early to catch her with him. I searched all over the apartment but couldn't find him anywhere.
So I went out onto the balcony, we live on the 25th floor, and found this man hanging over the edge by his fingertips. I went inside, got a hammer, and started hitting his hands. He fell, but landed in some bushes.
So, I got the refrigerator and pushed it over the balcony and it crushed him. The strain of the act gave me a heart attack, and I died."
St. Peter couldn't deny that this was a pretty bad day, and since it was a crime of passion, he let the man in. He then asked the next man in line about the day he died. "Well, sir, it was awful," said the second man. "I was doing aerobics on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment when I twisted my ankle and slipped over the edge.
I managed to grab the balcony of the apartment below, but some maniac came out and started pounding on my fingers with a hammer. Luckily I landed in some bushes. But, then the guy dropped a refrigerator on me!" St. Peter chuckled, let him into heaven and decided he could really start to enjoy this job.
"Tell me about the day you died?", he said to the third man in line.
"OK, picture this; I'm naked, hiding inside a refrigerator ..."

Public Courtesy

I have been around malls this weekend, riding the LRT to SM Sta. Mesa and going to 168 mall(which seems crowdier everytime i go there). Here are some public courtesy deficiency that i have observed:
1. While in the mall food court area, i saw this guy take a drink in the drinking fountain, so he takes the glass, fills it with water, drinks the water and returns the glass top down, exactly to where it was located before, doing that, others will think that the glass is not yet used and will use it. I did not wait for the next person to pick up that same glass and drink from it.
2. This happens all the time in escalators, people won't stay on one side!!!! It is a courtesy to stand in one side of the escalator, preferably the right side so that people who are in a hurry could easily pass by.
3. In bus, I hate seeing old people, pregnant women, disabled and children standing, please give up your seat for them.
4. When riding the MRT (mass train), people stay crowded near the doors, I mean, why block the doorway? The courtesy is to stay inward the train, away from the doors, if everybody wants to stay near the door, it is always a burden to get in or out the train.
Courtesy is really important, it is respect. Respect others and they will in turn respect you. Peace! ..V.

See things with a different eye

A song from spongebob (see

I wish I could join you there in the air
Floating free, without a care
I wish I could fly, and see things with a different eye
If I could fly, so very high, and touch the sky
And never have to ask why it is, that I can't fly

We could look at situations differently as we see them in different perspective, they say there are always two sides of the story(glass half full, glass half empty) , i say there are infinite(glass half full, glass half empty, who left this glass?, ooo... shiny glass, and so on). If we learn to look at things at the perspective of others, we could understand them more. Be happy, let your imaginations take you to different perspectives, fly away and touch the sky, never asking why you can't fly.

Hectic Wednesday

This morning, my alarm clock seems to have given up on me.... my alarm clock is set at 5:45am, i usually just press snooze everytime it alarms until i finally wake up at 6:30am, not the case today. Fortunately, i was waken up at 7:05am and the first phrase i uttered was: "Ha? May pasok ba ngayon?" then just like lightning, i jumped off the bed and took a bath and stuff... and i was ready after less than 10 minutes, gladly i was able to join my aunt's ride where I go along with to the office (I am dropped off EDSA). I was still one of the earliest in office though.

Amo: Inday, paki-abot nga 'yung ketchup...
Inday: While it can hardly be considered a health food, ketchup has been found to be a beneficial source of lycopene, an antioxidant which fights some forms of cancer. This is particularly true of the organic brands of ketchup. In fact, organic brands were found to contain three times as much lycopene as non-organic brands. Ketchup, much like marinara sauce and other cooked tomato foods, yields higher levels of lycopene per serving because cooking makes lycopene in tomatoes more bio-available.
Amo: Gaga!
Amo: Inday, bakit kulang ang sukli na ibinigay mo?
Inday: Hmmm... The person from the selling entity might have experienced memory deficiency due to the difficulty in concentrating and that lack of concentration lead to forgetfulness in giving the excess monetary equivalent due from the purchased item.
Amo: I think I'm gonna faint!
Amo: Inday, nganu gipasagdan man nimo si Junior nga pirti man ning tsabaw?
Inday: Sir, according to Erik Erikson's psychosocial theory of growth and development, toddlers normally exhibit temper tantrums to express emotions such as anxiety. And the best intervention is to ignore the situation. However, one should provide safety to avoid danger during their tantrums.
Amo: pag churoi!
Sa Resto:
Waiter : Ano po order nila maam?
Amo: Ung fried chicken meal na lang. Ikaw inday,ano sayo?
Inday: I would like to partake of a dish of sautéed pork and chicken,boiled in thick essence of soy and cane extracts,with copious amount of garlic, onion and laurel,sprinkled generously with fine spices and served with generous helping of root crop and a helping of rice.
Amo: Iho, paorder daw ng adobo with rice
It is in mistakes that we learn how to grow to be better individuals.You may judge me for what you see but it is not my mistakes that determines who i am but it is what i do to make it right.

Amo: Mula ngayon, wala nang magsasalita ng Ingles. Ang sinumang magpadugo ng ilong ko at sa mga anak ko, palalayasin sa pamamahay na 'to. klaro ba?
Inday: Ang mga namutawi sa inyong mga labi ay mataman ko pong iiimbak sa sulok ng aking balintataw, sa kaibuturan ng aking puso, gugunamgunamin, aariing salik ng aba at payak kong kabatiran. Tatalikdan ang matayog at palalong banyagang wika, manapay kakalingain, bibigkasin at sakdal timyas na sasambitin ng aking sangkolooban.

We need to give due respect and the presumption of regularity to the verdict laid down against the former President. but guilty or not guilt he will still be loved by people like me, people belonging to the masses.

Consul: Why do you wanna go to the US?Amo: To travel to visit friends and fly the airplane.Consul: Denied!
Consul: And you?Inday: For life is a never-ending pursuit of material and social satisfaction that I tender my great intent of actualizing a transpacific journey to the land of milk and honey. An affable sanctuary where dreams become reality and a perfect habitat where souls like mine can reach the pedestal of freedom.Consul: Lifetime multiple entry VISA granted!
Amo: Whaaat!!!
Jeepney Driver: Hoy bakit sais alng ang binayd mo?! Syete na pamasahe naguon!
Inday: I am currently enrooled in a 2-year vocational course in an academic institution. therefore, I am a student and, by this fact, I am entitled to have the inalienable right to avail of a certain discount on my jeepney fare. This is why I provided a payment less than what you expected because that is according to the law as stated in the fare matrix.Driver: (nosebleed)
Overnight, inaral ng amo ni inday ang dictionary para may pangtapat na siya kay inday
Amo: so inday, tell me, how do you accept the fact that you are just a mere chaimbermaid in this extravagant mansion??
Inday: una camarera?eres tan pathetic. La unica razon que inscribi tu casa es porque nada esta sucediendo dentro de tu casa cuasi-agradable. Quisiera traer una poca clase en este hogar pero conjeturo que no puedo porque esta casa es fea.
Amo: what??!!(dumudugo na ilong)
Nang nakauwi si Inday matapos mamalengke, nagalit ang kanyang amo...
Amo: Inday, hindi mo ba natanggap text ko? Tinext kita sabi ko bumili ka na rin ng giniling. Selpon selpon ka pa di naman nakakareceive ng text.
Inday: It's not that I can't receive any messages, it's just that I was at a place with a weak cellular signal. You see, even though longer wavelengths have the advantage of being able to diffract to a greater degree and are less reliant on line of sight to obtain a good signal, it can still attenuate significantly. And because the frequencies which cell phones use are too high to reflect off the ionosphere as shortwave radio waves do, cell phone waves cannot travel via the ionospohere.
Amo: Pa-ayono-ayonospir ka pang nalalaman. magsaing ka na nga bago dumugo na naman ilong ko.
[naks mukhang ECE graduate din ata si Inday]
Guess what? Those not-so stunning guys keeps on staring at my newly manicured nails while the copy-cat freaks envy my stylishly cut mane. Unfortunately after a great day at the spa, I have to step on this muddy and stinking place just to purchase some veggies!

"i understand that sexual urge is most of the time uncontrollable since a lot of factors contribute for it to be triggered..this is also the reason why some men are found to be polygamous and engage themselves in sexual acts even with someone who's a total stranger to them.."

How dare u t0 insinuate such intolerable act of abusing our nature from a mere scrap of humanity such asyou. If you further insist, i'll be forced to use my mental and physical capabilities just to pulverize u!

Boy Abunda: Inday, isang tanong. Diretsahan tayo. Baket ba mukhang ang lawak ng iyong pinag-aralan sa iba't ibang larangan ng sining at teknolohiya? Ano ang nagsilbing inspirasyon sayo para gawin ito?
Inday: Boy, don't you know how to count? Nevermind... to paraphrase Hayek, exclusive concentration on a specialty has a peculiarly baneful effect: it will not merely prevent us from being attractive company or good citizens but may impair our competence in our proper field.
Boy: Ahhh... [sabay kamot sa ulo]Kris: Boy, pinapahiya mo naman ang show eh. Ganito dapat. Inday, what Boy meant was what made you decide to pursue the knowledge of different academic uhh ... ahh subjects?
Inday: Kris my dear, it's either you're not satisfied with my previous answer or simply did not understand it. I'll just assume the latter. You see, these are all simply my abiding interests and all these tributaries flow into the same river. The thought of one's research going into ever decreasing, derivative and infertile circles, just depresses me. Getz?
Boy and Kris: [sabay nag-nosebleed at nagtawag ng commercial break]
"If the two eventually fell in love, despite the disparity of their ages and academic levels, this only lends substance to the truism that the heart has reasons for its own which reason does not know."
Iyan naman ang sagot ni INDAY sa ina ni DODONG na tutol sa kanilang pagmamahalan.
Amo: Inday, ba't sinisipon si Junior?
Inday: He came in direct contact from surfaces contaminated with rhinoviruses which entered the cells of the lining of his nasopharynx which in turn rapidly multiplied. Thus, giving him a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory system called acute viral nasopharyngitis.
Amo: [nosebleed sabay nataranta] what??! tumawag ka ng ambulansya! bilis!
Inday: Hayy, you're so ignorant. As if you have not been afflicted with the common cold in the course of your existence.
She is now becoming one of the fastest rising Internet stars today amassing a number of followers all over the world mostly Filipinos . Already surpassing Ederlyn, Yuga, the Numa Numa boy, the Chinese Backstreet Boys and even Casey and her cam.
Inday is getting a lot of popularity today mostly from word of mouth, SMS and e-mails. Her witty comments regarding her life as a domestic helper has already brought laughter and uncontrollable nosebleeds to us.
RL: Inday, thank you for accepting this interview, how are you feeling right now?
Inday: You might expect me to be flabbergasted or nervous with all the attention I'm getting right now. Actually, I'm not. I know from that very first text message that this is going to be inevitable. Even now the media is already interested in my fame that they sent you to interview me thinking that you can comprehend each and every word that I say.
RL: [nagpunas ng ilong] Uhmm, ahh I see... so with all your uhh academic credentials, what made you decide just to be a domestic helper?
Inday: Well, what do you expect me to be? A lawyer? A politician? A newscaster? Oh come on, you're all so predictable. Have you met a domestic helper that has a medical degree, is a world-class culinary artist, has a degree in Business Management, a certified public accountant and consistent Best in English for four years in high school?
RL: Uhhm, ahh I guess not.
Inday: Well there you go. That's what sets me apart and makes me unique from all the rest and I guess it's something that you just can't fathom.
RL: [tuluyan nang nag-nosebleed]
Inday: I guess this is the end of this interview. I still have to prepare our evening victuals and update my blog. Tatah! Hi nga pala to my love, Dodong! I love you babes.
Inday: Are you certain that you want to transfer me back to earth?
St. Peter: Oo! Langya ka! Mano-nose bleed lang yung mga kaluluwa dito! Dun ka na uli magkalat sa lupa!
It does not matter if you are the wife, or you're the mistress. What matters is you showed your love, you experienced the joys and pain in loving. Coz from there, you'll learn... that loving is not always easy.

Please pray for the quick recovery of Inday. She's currently in the ICU because of excessive nose bleeding, which she had while accompanying Junior in his school's Linggo Ng Wika Celebration. Please pass this to all whose lives, like mine, have been touched by Inday. Please pray for the quick recovery of Inday.

Dear Inday,
I'm sorry to inform you that your resignation was denied by the upper management due to your contract of 5 years or make love with the amo clause. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
Yours truly,Ma'am
Dear Sir/Madam,
Attached herewith is a list of proposed acquisition in line with my proposal to upgrade your household facilities. I have already made initial survey of current market prices. Note however that prices could vary depending on the prevailing exchange rate and aggregate supply and demand which we also monitor on an hourly basis.

Inday: Due to the infrequent mass media coverage around hogcholera, I'd consequently given a judgement on sauteing exquisite scallops in unsalted butter together w/ pungent white onion & tossed it w/ brisk asparagus. I'd also assented to twist it w/ fresh lemonzest & advance its taste via blending a petty amount of chardonay whitewine as well as a cup of viscous cream.
Amo: (napatumbling)
Sometimes, we fall in love and thought that it would be endless, we thank God for it.. but when someone comes and to make life better, what can we ask God then? You know what, I would ask God to make me love again... and this time.. make it permanent..
- Sinabi ni Inday sa kanyang sarili ng iwan siya ni Dodong.
What separates men from animals is his ability to talk and express his feelings. History has told us to fight when our right to communicate and self-expression is suppressed. If you don't like what I say, the way I say it, or the manner I do it, I apologize. But don't hinder me from practising my inherent right.
- Sagot ni Inday ng mahuling nakikipagchismisan sa kapitbahay.
Much as I would want to indulge in the proliferation of such incident and malicious information, I want to lift the stigma and alleviate society's perception of our profession. we are not here to thrive on humor but rather, we should engage in objective and top of the line service to our designated employers.
- Inday (tumangging makipagtsismisan sa katulong sa kabilang bahay. Professionalism at its best!)
I'm still a human being, attracted to anyone my heart beats on, and I have my limitations in contrlling my feelings. I have to push myself into not loving him. This is so wrong...
Si Inday na-inlove sa amo. Ibang level na talaga... Lovely day,isnt it?

Mico's day out

Last Sunday, everybody at home had the opportunity to go out to tiendesitas for the grooming of our baby dog Mico (shown on the picture), while waiting for the grooming to be done, we spent the afternoon in sm hypermarket foodcourt by simply eating, gobbling, munching, whatever you call it.
