The Sun Rising

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: The Sun Rising

1. When was the last time that you watched a sunrise? Who were you with? ** It was me on a ship bound for CDO.

2. If President Obama promised he'd do one thing you asked, what would you ask him to do? **Please give me an Immigrant Visa now :D

3. What is one experience that has strengthened your character the most so far? **living far away from home that caused me to become independent

4. What is the first thing that you usually do after completing Saturday 9? **read other answers :D

5. Tell us about someone either in your life or in the blogosphere that you think is extremely funny. **the thought that I do tickle my nose at times :D

6. Where was the last bed that you slept in that was not your own? **at a friend's house.

7. Have you ever been too drunk to remember anything? **Nope. I always make it a point that I never got too drunk when I'm out.

8. Have you ever licked something to clean it? ** my spoon long before I finish eating my ice cream

9. Who, outside of family or a S/O, has influenced your life the most? ** just someone that helped me strengthened my faith more.

Hoping...

I am armed with hopes now that I got some good news. I wish GOD will really grant the desires of my heart and will help me get my dreams to become a reality. I know in GOD's time, all these dreams of mine will be fulfilled. I am still keeping my grip tighter and continue hoping for a better tomorrow.

I know that the future will be bright for me for as long as I believe, for as long as I hope, for as long as I make the most of what I have today, and for as long as I believe in what GOD can do for me. :D

The Dating Profile Meme: Someone to Play With

Welcome to The Dating Profiles Meme. This meme is based on a feature from WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. This is a bit different than an "answer this question" meme. Either you have used sites such as Match.com or Yahoo Personals or you’ve read them. Weekly, we scour those on-line dating sites to respond either a person's profile or often their headlines as most of us would really like to do. We use only "lines" that are gender-neutral. So, your mission is to respond to ten we choose each week. Seriously or with humor is your choice! The spelling or grammar errors were in the original profiles. Join us each and every Friday!

The Dating Profiles Meme: Someone to Play With

1. I'm divorced 6 years and have no children, and am looking for someone to play with, be friends with and be open to a somewhat committed relationship. **seriously looking for someone to (just) play with? You better get yourself a video machine, hahaha! You can never even be a friend. I found the term 'to play' so degrading for a woman. We're not 'toy machines' dude. :)

2. I know this is short and sweet, but you really don't know a person until you talk to them. **I so agree with that statement. It all starts with a conversation, i mean, a talk or a chat or anything that involves an exchange of words.

3. I would love to find someone to grow old with. I have been single for a while now it is is getting very lonely. ** Aww, that's sweet - looking for someone to grow old with. ;)

4. I'm one to give long backrubs, massage your feet, or just sit and listen. ** If you can just sit and listen, that's already fine with me. Giving me backrubs and massages and you're a hubby and bf? That would be bonus points!:)

5. I have been on my own for a little over 5 years and actually enjoying it more than I thought I would. ** So what's exactly your point of joining such sites when you enjoy being on your own?:)

6. As a born-again Christian, I have quiet time with the Lord every morning and evening. **I admire it when someone devotes at least a quiet time for GOD.

7. Hi dont have a pic today but will tomorrow. I know there is one on my PC just dont know how to get it to come up. **Haha, same old excuses for guys who doesn't really intend to upload a pic but enjoys viewing other person's pics ;) Say what? You don't know how to upload it? Oh, I better let my elementary niece upload it for you. Just send me the file ;)

8. For beginners I am committed to a healthy and active life style. I work out regularly and watch what I eat. ** I got the same commitment as you are BUT I think you can get me to do work outs regularly cos I tend to become lazy at times & yeah, I also watch what I eat so I think we both agreed on that matter :)

9. I believe in giving each other the freedom of space and time apart. **Freedom of space? Yes. Freedom of time apart? I am still thinking about it.

10. I am looking for a relationship not just a roll in the hay. ** Not just a roll in the hay? Oh, I think you're dead serious about your commitment to a relationship which I so adore.

Thank you for playing this week on The Dating Profiles Meme. Please leave a comment or link when you have posted. Feel free to stop back and visit other player’s posts. Have a great week. Join us for Sunday Stealing. See you next Friday!

Uber Tired!

I'm so so tired these days! Again, work has became the major culprit of my rants and clamors. Err, handling a handful of patients is really tough plus I get to skip my meals making me soooo unhealthy!

I still am thankful that I still got the nerve to do and perform my tasks at hand. I just don't know what to do if my body weakens and can't seem to hold on it anymore (I hope it won't ever happen!).

Well, this is still for the love of service. For God's glory.
May GOD bless me always so I can truthfully do my purpose here on earth while I am still alive.

Wednesday Wickedness: Ellen

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness. We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a famous person and pick ten of their quotes. Each of our questions will be based on the quotes. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!


Today we picked Ellen Degeneres. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!


1. "I was coming home from kindergarten--well they told me it was kindergarten. I found out later I had been working in a factory for ten years. It's good for a kid to know how to make gloves."
How old were you when you started working and what was your first job? **started working when I finished college & my first job was that of a telesales representative.

2. "My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the hell she is." Tell us about your grandparents. ** My paternal grandparents are already dead & they both died of illnesses. My maternal grandmother is still alive at age 80+ and stays in Bohol while I haven't had a glimpse of my maternal grandfather who died on the same year my mom finished her college degree.

3. "Procrastination isn't the problem, it's the solution. So procrastinate now, don't put it off." Do you procrastinate or are you on top of the situations? **It depends on a given situation.

4. "Sometimes you can't see yourself clearly until you see yourself through the eyes of others." What would others say about you? **I am reliable.

5. "The only thing that scares me more than space aliens is the idea that there aren't any space aliens. We can't be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we're not all there is. If so, we're in big trouble" Do you believe in life on other planets? **I don't.

6. "I'm a godmother, that's a great thing to be, a godmother. She calls me god for short, that's cute, I taught her that." Do you have a godchild? **I have a handful of them, in fact I'd be a god mom this Sunday.

7. "I don't understand the sizes anymore. There's a size zero, which I didn't even know that they had. It must stand for: 'Ohhh my God, you're thin.'" When was the last time that you were called too thin? **When I was still in Elementary.

8. "I have the worst memory ever so no matter who comes up to me - they're just, like, 'I can't believe you don't remember me!" I'm like, 'Oh Dad I'm sorry!'" Who was the last person that you should have recognized but didn't? **My friend D.

9. "I gotta work out. I keep saying it all the time. I keep saying I gotta start working out. It's been about two months since I've worked out. And I just don't have the time. Which uh..is odd. Because I have the time to go out to dinner. And uh..and watch tv. And get a bone density test. And uh.. try to figure out what my phone number spells in words." Do you work out? Have you ever joined a gym and quit almost immediately? **I've joined once and was enrolled for a 4-month membership. I dropped on the 3rd month. I do work out though but I'm doing it at home now. I do Hip Hop Abs while emulating that gym instructor on DVD.

10. 'We use 10 percent of our brains. Imagine how much we could accomplish if we used the other 60 percent." Do you feel that you utilize all your intelligence in every situation? **Nope, not really.

Thanks for checking out our Wednesday craziness. We hope you join us again. Please visit our other player's posts and make a comment. Join us next week for our next meme!

Prawns, Prawns, Prawns!

Photo Credits: ifood.tv

Thank GOD for my wonderful parents! They've been so thoughtful and very loving because they sent us stir-fried prawns from our hometown. I was deeply touched because of the effort they've made so their precious children could get a taste of Mom's stir-fried prawns! After 5-6 hours, we got the much awaited stir-fried prawns placed inside a plastic ware which was carefully secured.

Since it arrived yesterday, we can't stop eating until it's going to be consumed!
Once again, my deepest gratitude to my wonderful parents for this gift!:)

A Friend's Mom Dies

I got so shocked when I got an FB message from my long time & elementary friend, Lanie M telling me that her mom was in a comatose state for weeks! I was told through that FB email that 60% of blood in the brain had gone clotted and the doctor informed them that her mom won't live longer. Reading her message gave me a sense of sadness since her mom & my mom were colleagues and became close friends.

Last Saturday, July 17, I got the chance to be in the hospital where her mom was confined. However, I've learned that she's already dead early that morning. I am grateful that I was told where her body lies in state.

Yesterday, my sis & I got the chance to visit her wake. It was also the first time I saw my friend after how many years. There, I was told about how it all happened and how it did happen so fast. At least I was able to hear from my friend that they've already learned to accept their mother's death cos they don't want to witness their mom being alive but is living in agony.

To my mom's dear friend & the mother of one of my treasured friends, may you rest in peace.
To my friend and the family she's left behind, I know you will always remain strong even at the thought that you're mom now lives with GOD in Heaven.

A sad reality though but acceptance plays the key to it.

Sunday Stealing: Meme of Many Odd Questions, Part Two

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing. Sunday Stealing originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Kuda Girl of the blog named Kuda Girl's Journal. Kuda Girl explains that she ripped it from two bloggers Slay Me Softly and Dragon Fly Lady. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. It has 65 questions, so we'll do it in parts. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

A Night-Out With The Birthday Girl!:)

July 10, a friend of mine celebrated her 31st birthday. As usual, all the single ladies were out on that special night. It was a special night of fun because a friend of ours who came from KSA for a quick vacation, treated us to a 1-hour whole body massage! It was a great treat because personally, I so needed a body massage these days now that work has become ever stressful! After experiencing a very soothing body massage, we all went to Eduardo's and had our share of Gilbey's Premium Strength plus a 20" Meaty Lovers Pizza!

It was indeed a great night for us celebrating years of friendship!:)

Saturday 9: Love Hurts

A word about today's title...I promised Bud that I'd let you folks know about his son's band's latest EP, The Fashion.

8. If you had to choose a theme song for your blog, which would would you choose and why? **I can't seriously think of one right now haha! I've got a looootttttttt of songs in mind but none were applicable here.

9. Who was the last person you had an online conversation with that you've never met or talked to on your phone? **None cos it's been a long time since I last chatted.

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

7 Days Straight At Work!

This week, I'm on a 7 day-straight duty days! Actually, I talked about it with someone in the position but I just got an answer that IT'S OKAY. The other day, I was asked if it's already my off day the next day, and I answered that it's still the 4th of my 7 days straight duties and I was told that IT'S NOT ALLOWED.

Now tell me where's justice here?!?
Such scenarios is one of the reason why I tend to become assertive. However, I am always misunderstood whenever I do so. I better keep mum of everything for as long as I'm doing my job well.

When Being Assertive Becomes Useless!

I really feel bad today. It crumples my heart to note that someone in authority doesn't have the heart to listen to the woes and pleas of the people around her. Pressures are really in the air for us but what we needed is that little piece of understanding on some issues concerned.

I did talk about the issue trying to be assertive and expressed a win-win solution. However, our thoughts didn't reconcile because every time I talk, she always repels in what I was saying.

I realized I'd rather not talk anymore.
No sense to say what is deemed to be said.
Because after all, becoming assertive on some concerns had gone useless!

Cough + Colds = DISCOMFORT!

Photo Credits: Babble.com

I think I've posted last week that I was suffering from colds. Exactly a week ago, I bought a remedy for my colds which is a drug called 'Nasathera' and I found it deem effective because it made me sleep better and kept me away from sniffing around. I really thought I'd be feeling okay not until Friday this week when I felt that my throat had become itchy whenever I swallowed my saliva. From then on, I found myself always clearing my throat because of itchiness plus, whenever I cough (got a nonproductive one), my throat hurts so much! Colds have also recurred that spells an added discomfort on my part. For now, I am still forcing myself to drink more and more fluids cos I believe this would be of great help.

I just hope I'd be relieved from this discomfort the soonest possible time.

For Someone Whose Friendship I'll Always Cherish


I hope this would be the last, hopefully the last message & the last thoughts ever made for you so I could finally take myself to the road where I'm supposed to be, even without you hanging to what you once vowed as your pact for our friendship:

"I hope you do cherish your friendships even if I'm not part of it anymore. Do love them for all that they are. Don't treat them like the way you're treating me now. Sad to realize though that you never took the risk in saving my friendship with you but I know it did happen for a reason. Finally, I wanna THANK YOU for everything - most of all for the hurts and the pain - because I still get to value our friendship in my own selfless way even if I became unappreciated, been ignored, and had suffered the feeling of becoming unwanted. I should say I am still proud of myself because of how these made me to become the person that I am now."


Scratching The Itch

I keep on scratching these days - scratching the itch on my knees to be specific. AND it's turning SO RED now. I cleaned my room and got rid of all the dust confined but how come I still keep on scratching. I got my room sprayed already but how come I can still feel the itch? Are there bed bugs crawling still? This is not funny anymore. I really must do something to keep myself from scratching my knee.

I hate you bed bugs. I hate you mosquitoes. I hate you tiny creatures!

My Bet Is The Philippines' 15th President


I'm glad that my presidential bet won in the presidential elections. I just kept mum about it because I don't like to be involved in heated arguments because of politics plus the fact that it just saddened me when I heard negative comments about the then ordinary politician Noynoy.

Now that he's the Philippines 15th President, I still say 'Thank You' to his detractors because it challenged him to be the man that he is right now.

During the inauguration last June 30, 2010, I was very much attentive to the coverage on TV and got myself involved online such as Twitter & Facebook, including the latest news online. From the Aquino residence in Times Street, to the Malacanang Palace where he'd ride the car with then President GMA from there to Quirino Grandstand, then Quirino Grandstand where he took an oath, and him delivering his inaugural speech - I really did pay attention to all of those significant events. I was personally touch with his inaugural address. He delivered it just right and take note, in our very own Filipino language. I was deeply touched when he said he had forgiven his detractors - that I'm sure include those who created stories that he's suffering from severe depression. It was also a very humble statement when he said to the Filipinos, 'Kayo ang Boss Ko."

Looking at him then and now, he's still the same person with a good heart. From his posture, on the way he walks, the way he faces the media, I should say that he's better now.

To President Noynoy, I am one with you in changing the view of the world to the Philippines, the New Philippines! I am one with you when you say that our dreams will finally become a realization.

Mabuhay ka PNoy! :)

Sunday Stealing: The Eighty Meme, Part Two

NOTE: I miss this meme's part one but I hope I'll make sense in this part. ;)


Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Heart of Shou of the blog named Musings of an Absent Mind. Shou explains that she ripped it from a blogger named Erro. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. It was originally 80 questions, hence the name. We chose 44 of them and here is the second part! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Thank You My Friend

One year ago today, a wonderful friendship was established. Everything went perfectly fine until almost seven (7) months after it was built. Sad that it had ended too soon because of that allegedly one single mistake I made. WE could have celebrated our 1st Friendship Anniversary today but I believe everything happens for a reason. I still 'Thank You' for that once beautiful friendship.

Missing Memes!

I miss two memes for the week. Too bad I am too much engaged to some tasks these days plus the fact that I am sick! I hope I can always carry this notebook with me at all times so I could keep you guys updated of my whereabouts. Right now? I am sniffing with all my might. Colds have attacked me again & never dared to keep me away from it. I think I'd buy something to alleviate this discomfort I am feeling...

By the way, I will try to participate in next week's memes. Check it out guys next week.
