Litratong Pinoy : Ayaw Ko (I Don’t Like)

Unang beses ko sya nakitang nalasing. Nasarapan siguro sa alak na inihanda ko. LOL!

Sa unang pagkakataon, inayawan nyang magpakuha ng litrato. Keber kung naka-swimsuit o hubad sya, mahilig kasi syang magpalitrato – cam whore ika nga nila. Pero sa pagkakataong ito, unang beses syang umayaw magpakuha. Hindi nya nga alam na kinuhanan ko sya nung una. Pero nang makita nya ‘to, nahiya sya sa kanyang mga ginawa. ‘Di na raw sya uulit uminom ng marami. Nadala na raw sya. LOL!

(It was my first time to see him drunk. I guess he liked the brandy I served them that night. LOL! For the first time, he begged off from having his picture taken. He doesn’t care whether he’s wearing his swimwear or he’s naked – he loves having his picture taken – a certified cam whore so they say. When he saw this picture, he was embarrassed. He said that night won’t happen again. He learned his lesson. LOL!)


Litratong Pinoy: Mithi (Wish)

Wish ko lang magkaroon ulit ng katawang kagaya ng sa kanila.

Naging payat din naman ako nung kabataan ko. Naranasan ko rin naman na mag-sleeveless at kung ano pang seksing damit. Yun nga lang, dala ng pagkakaroon ng PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease), ‘di ko na nagawang magpapayat ulit. Nagtuloy-tuloy na akong lumaki. Me hubog pa rin naman ang katawan ko. Coke 1.5 liters nga lang ang hugis. LOL!

Siguro di ko na minimithing maibalik sa 110 pounds ulit ang timbang ko kahit ano pang gamot ang isaksak ko sa katawan ko para pumayat. Gusto ko na lang magkaroon ng mas mahaba at mas malusog na pangangatawan. Yun man lang maibigay ko sa aking sarili at sa aking anak. At alam kong magagawa ko yan sa takdang panahon.

How I wish I could have a body like theirs. I was thin once when I was younger. I was able to experience wearing sleeveless and sexy clothes. Since I have PCOD, going back to my old weight proved difficult already. I grew bigger. I still have the curves though. It’s just the Coke 1.5 liter curves. LOL!

I won’t be wishing for my weight to go back to 110 pounds and use up all the available weight loss pills in the market. All I want now is for me to have a longer and healthier life. This is the one thing I want to give myself and my son. And I know I can do this in time.

Litratong Pinoy: Liwaliw

Halos 3 linggo akong absent sa LP so babawi ako ngayong linggo sa aking mga lahok.

Bihira akong magpakuha ng litrato kasi nga nasanay na ‘kong ako ang kumukuha at hindi ako ang kinukuhanan. Nang mapunta ako ng Roxas City sa unang pagkakataon, naisip kong maganda na me kuha naman ako sa isang lugar na paunang beses ko napuntahan. Meron man lang akong kahit isang litrato na magpapatunay na nanggaling nga ako ron. At eto nga, isa ito sa mga litratong nakuhanan ng aking kaibigan habang hinihintay namin si Dolf, ang kaibigan ng bossing ko para maiikot kami ng saglit sa mga kalye ng Roxas bago ang kasal ni Karlyn. Kita mo nga’t dala ko pa rin ang aking camera bag kahit na papunta ako sa kasal. Hindi pwedeng hindi ko dala ito sa aking pagliliwaliw.

It’s a rare occasion that I get to have my picture taken because I’m used to taking the photos instead of me being the subject. When I went to Roxas City for the first time, I thought that it would really be great to have my picture taken since it was the first time I’ve set foot on the place. At least I’ll have one memento of my stay there – and proof that I’ve been there. This was one of the photos that my friend took while we were waiting for Dolf, my boss’s friend. As you can see, I still have my camera bag with me even if I was going to a wedding. For me, bringing Sly along in my travels is a definite must, wherever that may be.


Here’s a tag from the Faery. Sorry for the delayed reply, sweetie!

Here’s the rule..

Click copy/paste, type in your answers and tag four people in your lists! Don’t forget to change my answers to the questions with that of yours.

1. Four places I go over and over

** Niagara Falls (this is my ultimate honeymoon place – just need to find that lucky guy to be with me! LOL!)
** Mississauga, Ontario – this is where my best friend and the rest of her family live. They’re the warmest people I’ve ever known – and they’re some of the best cooks too!
** Stonehedge – something weird really attracts me to this place.
** Wales – not too crowded like London. It’s one of the best places I’ve been to in my life.

2. Four people who e-mail me regularly

** Anna (my SIL)
** Pam (my best friend)
** Atty. Joy (her daily quotes never fail to inspire me)
** Jonathan (family friend who lives in Dubai)

3. Four of my favorite places to eat?

** Dad’s – International buffet that’s not as pricey as in the hotels
** Fish & Co. – Affordable and yummy! I just wish they would have the apple cider vinegar for the chips sauce!
** Sosing Carinderia – This is the best carinderia ever! No promotional items needed to boost its sales. People flock the place especially during lunch time! One of the best grilled stuff and bulalo/nilaga in the metro.
** Aling Tonya’s – Going to Dampa? Then this is my choice!

4. Four places you’d rather be?

** Canada – I’d really love to go back and stay there for good (with Basti, of course)
** Lucban, Quezon – for that much-needed break from the polluted city
** Boracay (with friends) – a part 2 of the adventure would be great
** Palawan – if it’s not too pricey, then I would’ve explored that beautiful place!

** Perfect Strangers
** The Drew Carey Show

The Hype About the iPhone

So what’s the hype about the newest gadget in town? Oh yeah, the iPhone is said to be the coolest thing that ever happened to a mobile phone.

It was launched at the Tower Club last Friday and of course it was all over the papers the next day. I was more ecstatic over the fact that work was done by 3pm that day and I went home burning with fever rather than trying to sneak my way in for a chance to win the iPhone for free (or so they say).

I actually would like to own an iPhone. But the problem lies in the fact that Globe exclusively holds the rights to this gadget and I’m not a Globe subscriber. I still don’t understand this concept set by Apple to just have only one provider giving service to this useful gadget. This caused the phone to be priced here at almost 3-5 times more than it’s actual cost in the US. I stand firm in my decision not to buy the iPhone for that horrible price! I know they have recently lowered the prices but still, I wouldn’t buy it for that price. I’d rather just buy unlocked cell phones that have great features too for a price that’s not too pricey.

If the time comes when other phone companies can already sell this gadget, then I may reconsider purchasing it. But until that time comes, I’m gonna stay put with my trusty and rusty phone for my mobile needs.

The Sickly Me

I haven’t gone to work this week. I went down with the flu and had another bout with laryngitis that rendered me voiceless for a couple of days. Right now, I’m under strict instructions not to talk and for me to just rest and recuperate.

Even as a child, I was sickly. There were some birthdays of mine that I recall being in the hospital or I was just sick in bed celebrating it there with cake and spaghetti. It’s a true bummer to be sick on your birthday but in my case, it was sort of a regular thing to me.

Now I’m wondering whether I can still be in a good state of health. July and August have been really terrible months for me financially and health-wise. I have like a full pouch of different medications for different illnesses and I’ll never know when this will end. But looking at the brighter side of things, I actually enjoy these rare moments that I just snuggle under my comforter (which look like a really cool crib bedding for a big baby like me) and half a dozen pillows. Sleep has never been this good – even though it’s induced by the antibiotics and pain relievers I’m taking.

I can babble on and on about my angst on my health – but what the heck! Life is still beautiful.

Cable and TV stuff

I am not that knowledgeable about cables and stuff but I know the basics about them – like how I’m going to connect my phone to my computer or the DVD player to the TV or my camera to the TV. But I get lost with all the jargon, that is, the different types and names of cables used for a specific type of gadget or machine.

We all know that the latest craze in TV is the HDTV or what they call the high definition TV. I heard that this kind of TV works best when used with HDMI cables for crisper and clearer audio and video. Well, that would be really cool if you’ll ask me.

Now, all I need would be a new HDTV. LOL!
