I had been off for few days already. I was kind busy with other things. Hmm...The last time I checked, I was disappointed with my colorful lay-out, my fellow sis could not leave a comment in my posts. So just recently, I changed another lay-out. Hope this one's work. So now, I would go blog blog again...It's good to be back. A lot of stories to tell=)

GT #3 - THE OTHER SIDE INTELLIGENCE

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 7/15/2010 11:38:00 PM 1 comments Links to this post

I have a confession to make, I have four failures in my Transcript (T.O.R.). Can I cover my face now? *smiles* I failed in biology, chemistry and two maths (what's to brag about this?.) But I don't see myself as dumb. I always live by the thought that my grades doesn't reflect my learning (which is kind of difficult to make it sound okay during job interviews). Hmm.. I am not so much of the academic but I managed to have good grades except for math and science.. But as what they claim, and which I quite agree (humble effect), I excel in ENGLISH. The pronouns, grammars, sentence constructions, etc., seem to be an easy money for me. I can formulate my sentences well and with all fairness, articulate enough when ask to read it. I manage to deliver extemporaneous speeches, elocution pieces and individual reportings, but never think of joining any organizations. *smiles again*

I can also say that my conversational skill is commendable. I can handle conversations with different people. This, which is applicable to my job as a Human Resource Staff. I handle interviews and maintain a conversational level with applicants. I do background checking and orientations, both of which require a good speaking skill. Hmmm... I hope I don't sound like a big braggadocio.

To sum it up, we all have the right to claim our different sides of intelligence. But for me, INTELLIGENCE is more than the digits or letters in one's T.O.R. or report card, it's having the wits and articulation wrapped with confidence, that will make a person stand out in a crowd of Einsteins.

High school was like ten years ago and a decade of changes happen. Having to look at these pics, brings me to those silly ol' days. The baduy outfits, mushy crushes, petty fights, puppy love, heartaches and etc. I miss those days! But today, it's different. We're already grown-up women, striving for survival, surpassing problems and living life. Whew.


(FRESH FRESHMAN. FIRST YEAR HIGH SCHOOL WITH AMOW. LOOK AT HOW ANTI-FASHION WE WERE. BUT LOOK AT US NOW, ESPECIALLY AMOW, WHO IS FAR DIFFERENT FROM WHAT SHE WAS BEFORE.)

WORDFUL WEDNESDAY#3 - i love you, SONY!

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 7/14/2010 11:03:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
I love you, SONY!. That's been my mantra since last week. And just today, I was reminded of it again. The style, the color and the features, who would not fall in love with this SONY VAIO. But the price is just not yet for me. I can buy this for 70, 000 pesos, more or less 1,560 dollars. Whew. Tell me, how on earth am I going to produce that amount of money now? It will take me years.=) But my wildest goal is to have this on my hands before the year ends. I'll cross my fingers on this. Wish me luck!

TSMSS # 2: SHOW ME THE WAY TO YOUR HEART

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 7/10/2010 10:03:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post


This was sung by Kris Dayanti. I so love oldies or classic. It's like I was born during their time.


"I guess you think you really know me
I keep all the secrets you've told me
We're such good friends
That's where it ends
But at night when I'm dreaming, you hold me

Maybe we've known each other too long
We've laughed and you've cried on my shoulder
Why can't you see this change in me
Won't you say it's not too much to hope for

Chorus
Show me the way to your heart
Won't you lead me all the way to your heart
My emotions are too strong to resist
And together we've journey this for
Take me to your heart...

I may be my imagination
But when we just touched you were shoking
Oh can it be... you feel like me
If you do baby, don't keep me waiting

Friday Photo Flashback

My aunt scanned a caveman picture of me and my sister. I look like an ugly bully, while she looks cute. I have to admit I'm kind of the ugly duckling before. My aunts would tell me that I look so different from the kid I was before. You're the better judge..=)

My elder sister, Tangsoy and me.

And look at us today... That is my younger brother Angkie in between. (Still in the same angle, she on the left and I'm on the right)

GT #2 - THE EXTRAVAGANT BUM

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 7/08/2010 05:48:00 PM 6 comments Links to this post
Girls Talk

I'm such a bum lately. My money is enough for the bills, contributions and etc. I have to make sure that every penny is not wasted. You see, I just resigned last May 15, so I have to maintain a strict budget. But despite my almost being a beggar, I always find ways for foods. I can always say NO to shopping (even if I've been dying to buy the newest Kamiseta shirt), I can always say NOT NOW to adventures (water rafting and zip zone) but it's always a YES to food!.I became an extravagant bum when it comes to the food I love. I indulge myself to pizzas, eat all you can, cuisines, etc. My mom would always tell me, "and now you're complaining that you're fat?".

Maybe because I have live to the thought that you should not deprive yourself when it comes to food. Food is life. This is the financial me.

These are few of my food collection pictures..

WORDFUL WEDNESDAY #2 - 50 IT IS

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 7/08/2010 12:33:00 AM 3 comments Links to this post


This 7th day of July, 2010, is my Aunt Grace's (my dad's sister) 50th birthday. We had a blast. Get together with cousins, aunts and few uncles. Had a good laugh, good food and refillable ice teas. Time is really running fast or let me rephrase that, time is tissue.

This is she. Blowing away her younger years and saying hello to more wrinkles. Well, rephrasing what the advertisement just said, "IT's OK TO BE 50, JUST AS LONG AS YOU LOOK 30"



Now these pictures are really funny. We were suppose to act as if we were having a serious talk and my brother would gave us a snap. Look what happened. It appeared to be obviously scripted. But I love it..


In these two pictures, starting from the left corner are : my brother Fangki, yours truly, cousins Rhea and Miko. And cousin Chiko who was trying to cover his face as usual.

WEDNESDAY WICKEDNESS #1 - edward cullen

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 7/07/2010 03:28:00 PM 3 comments Links to this post




This is my first entry for the WEDNESDAY WICKEDNESS. And today they picked the famous Robert Pattinson a.k.a. Edward Cullen.Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

1. "I don't really see the point in washing your hair. If you don't care if your hair's clean or not then why would you wash it?" How often do you wash your hair?

EVERYDAY! I care a lot about my hair, it's every woman's crowning glory..=)

2. "I take way too long to get dressed, like way too long. But only for things like shows or if I have to do public appearances. Like, I’m ridiculous, I’ll keep getting changed and getting changed and then I’ll just put on the same thing I wore the day before." Do you take longer to dress for a special event?

Even on ordinary occasions, it will take me a few trials to finally arrive at my final pic.

3. "My dad's a car dealer, but I grew up in London, so I always say I don't drive…I get driven. I got a driving lesson in Oregon, and then I bought a car in L.A. and I basically learned how to drive by people honking at me. I'm terrible at driving." Are you a good driver?

Wish I am. I don't know how to drive and still planning to have a driving lesson.

4. "I don't spend any money. The only thing I've really bought is my car, which cost $1,500 and keeps exploding. It would be nice to buy a house for my parents, but at the same time my parents are so comfortable where they live; they would probably just feel like it was a burden. I wear the same clothes every day and the only thing I used to splurge on was DVDs." If you had his money, what would be the first thing you spent it on?

I want to buy my own laptop and digital camera!

5. "I aspire to be Jack Nicholson. I love every single mannerism. I used to try and be him in virtually everything I did, I don't know why. I watched One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest when I was about 13, and I dressed like him. I tried to do his accent. I did everything like him. I think it's kind of stuck with me." Who is your favorite actor?

There are many of them actually, like Jackie Chan, Will Smith, Brendan Fraser, etc.

6. "Someone stole my shoelaces once from my shoes. I still wear them and never put laces in them - they're like my trademark shoes now!" Have you ever changed your appearance because of a random happenstance?

Hmmm...Rarely.

7. "I never really considered myself attractive. I was always kind of gangly in school." Do you consider yourself attractive?

NO COMMENT..=)

8. "I definitely want to record an album, direct a film and start my own religion. I definitely wouldn’t have to pay taxes anymore.” If you started your own religion, what would it be like?

A combination of Roman Catholic and Born Again Christian.

9. "I do bear some similarities in the sense that I’m not good at romance. I also think I lack basic finesse when it comes to women. I give up too easily even if I’m very attracted to someone." Have you ever given up too easily in thegame of love?

Heck no! I fight for my love.

10. " I don’t want to disappoint girls who might think I’m very cool and smooth, which I’m not, I’m afraid. I’m still quite shy, although that seems to be something of an attraction for women." Are you, or have you ever been attracted to shy people?

Hahaha! Definitely!. That's my type.

WHAT IS THE QUESTION?

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 7/06/2010 09:30:00 PM 2 comments Links to this post

"A Fascinating battle of wits and hits"

The movie is indeed brilliant. Watched it yesterday.Like it says 80 minutes, 8 candidates, 1 answer, no question. Actually there is a question, in fact a very simple question but will take tons of sweat to figure it out. One must listen carefully and pay attention to understand the question. I'm so proud of myself that I was able to come up with the question. Two thumbs up!

This is a plot summary written by Stuart Hazeldine.

Eight talented candidates have reached the final stage of selection to join the ranks of a mysterious and powerful corporation. Entering a windowless room, an Invigilator gives them eighty minutes to answer one simple question. He outlines three rules they must obey or be disqualified: don't talk to him or the armed guard by the door, don't spoil their papers and don't leave the room. He starts the clock and leaves. The candidates turn over their question papers, only to find they're completely blank. After the initial confusion has subsided, one frustrated candidate writes 'I believe you should hire me because...,' and is promptly ejected for spoiling. The remaining candidates soon figure out they're permitted to talk to each other, and they agree to cooperate in order to figure out the question: then they can compete to answer it. At first they suspect the question may be hidden in their papers like a security marker in a credit card, and they figure out ways to change their environment to expose the hidden words. But light, liquids and other plans all come to naught. Soon enough, the candidates begin to uncover each other's background, prejudices and hidden agendas. Tensions rise as the clock steadily descends towards zero, and each candidate must decide how far they are willing to go to secure the ultimate job . . .

TSMSS #1- LEADER OF THE BAND

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 7/03/2010 12:13:00 PM 6 comments Links to this post


I've been singing this song since yesterday. LEADER OF THE BAND by Dan Fogelberg. This is one of my personal favorites. Here's the lyrics:


An only child alone and wild
A cabinet maker's son
His hands were meant for different work
And his heart was known to none
He left his home and went his lone and solitary way
And he gave to me a gift
I know I never can repay

A quiet man of music
Denied a simpler fate
He tried to be a soldier once
But his music wouldn't wait
He earned his love through discipline
A thund'ring velvet hand
His gentle means of sculpting souls
Took me years to understand

The leader of the band
Is tired and his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs thru' my instrument
And his song is in my soul
My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
I'm just a living legacy
To the leader of the band

My brother's lives were different
For they heard another call
One went to Chicago and the other to St. Paul
And I'm in Colorado
When I'm not in some hotel
Living out this life I've chose
And come to know so well

I thank you for the music
And your stories of the road
I thank you for the freedom
When it came my time to go
I thank you for the kindness
And the times when you got tough
And papa I don't think I said
I love you near enough

FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK#2 - LITTLE ME

Friday Photo Flashback


This is the LITTLE ME! My father gave this to me weeks ago. I think this picture was taken when I was still 2 or 3 years old. This is so funny to look at. I really look different except for the lips (and the turkey neck). I really look like a bully brat here, like "mess with me and you'll never see the light of the day".

GT #1 - I LOVE (APPRECIATE) MY (DEEP BREATH) LEGS AND CHEST

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 7/01/2010 06:34:00 PM 11 comments Links to this post

Girls Talk This is my first entry for the girls talk. I feel so new. Girls in the list seem to have their blog bonding already. But that doesn't stop me from wanting to join. Anyway, love to be here. For today's theme, it's about loving the physical you.

What do I love about me physically, is kind of a hard question for someone who has figure issues like myself. I know, I'm just over reacting and the unwanted calories didn't reach to 200 yet, but the tons of it are already undeniable. I have inferiorities in my body, so to say, but it didn't come to a point where I ended up hating my reflection, that is so far fetch. Hmmm... So what do I really like about my physical self? (this is like finding a single needle in a haystack) Maybe it's my chest. Although the colar bone started to be shy when I became fat, but it's indeed flawless. And in all fairness, you can't spot any blemishes in my face. Now, I'm starting to sound like a big boast.

(This is the latest picture I have)


I also like my legs down to the ankle. Although, it's kind of chubby but you can't see any bruises in the area.

(The pic was taken when I still have my long hair)



But in the end, to be beautiful is not just about the physical attributes, it's about loving one's self. It's about inner beauty. It's about being beautiful in the inside. I believe that real beauty comes from within..=)
