Pugad Baboy 22

Saturday, April 30, 2011

Our trips to the bookstore have become limited so when we had time to spare a couple of weeks ago, I made sure to check out favorites for new books. And guess what I found? Yep, Pugad Baboy 22! We did not know there’s a new issue and upon googling I found out that this was released early this year (or late last year, not sure) but copies were scarce. I am glad we grabbed a copy at once because it seems there are limited stocks only.

Here’s one of my fave strips in this issue:


Brosia, YOU na! :p

If I did not quit…

Friday, April 29, 2011

I have to be honest and I say that until now, I still think what could have happened to my career if I did not leave the corporate world about ten years ago. Sure I was given a chance to be my own boss after that but plans fell through. If I did not quit, I’ve probably climbed the ranks and I am already offered management jobs, here or abroad. That would have been nice huh?

These are just thoughts alright.

I am happy to be staying home with K :) I just wish sometimes that I have more liberty to do the things that I want but really, that’s not what motherhood is about, right? This is my career now.

Five types of annoying Facebook users, according to women

Saturday, April 23, 2011

I am currently not on Facebook (although I did not delete my account; contemplating on returning soon too!) because I got tired of it. I have a number of reasons. This article that I saw kinda confirms that I am not alone in feeling this way. It lists the five types of annoying users:

  1. The Complainer – the one who spreads negative vibes with  just about every status update.
  2. The Crazy Baby Lady – we know your baby is cute but there’s no point sharing a picture every time he smiles or drools or poop.
  3. The Documentarian – the one who shares even the least mundane things happening around her and in her life.
  4. The Drama Queen – read: every little thing turns into a crisis!
  5. The Poser – enough said.

Can you believe the heat?

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

We just got our electric bill and was shocked by how much it increased from the previous month. Did they just increase the basic charge again? You tell me. Anyway, we expected the addition in the bill as we have been turning the A/C on for a few hours on some days to give K a restful sleep (we noticed she’d sleep through the night when we do). Summer is extra hot this year, even the plants in the garden need to be watered (with a metal hose? Nah. Just the ordinary one)at least twice in a day. I guess we should expect a spike in our water bill too, eh?

Life is Short

I woke up to sad news that a local teen actor named AJ Perez passed away after a vehicular accident. It did not register to me right away, but when I asked my LBB about it (they went to the same HS), he pointed out that AJ was the one who portrayed the seminarian in Sabel (hehe).

AJ Perez

I do not know him personally (obviously haha) and neither I am a fan but news like this really make me sad. He’s gone too soon but we can never question fate. Rest well, kiddo. Strength for your family and friends.

Display Cabinets

Saturday, April 02, 2011


We are in the process of building a school in time for the next school year. The last few months have been really busy. Maybe we started planning late but we are trying to make everything ready by the time school starts. While the permit is being processed, we are in the final stages of furnishing the school. I think the chairs and tables, as well as the playground set have been ordered already. The other day, I was tasked to find display cabinets similar to the image here. I am not sure what the cabinets will be for, but definitely not for soccer trophies, YET. Maybe we’ll need it for the library, teacher’s lounge or the sports room.

Anyway, just an update, I better get back to work.

Parents Should Not Text

You have probably heard of the site where they post funny auto-correct samples. Well that site also gave birth to this new one which is equally hilarious and entertaining. I actually browsed the most recent ones that I forgot I had to work! (No worries though, work got done too, LOL!). Here are a few samples that really made me laugh.





There are a lot more in the site. The funnier ones, I cannot post here because this is a GP blog LOL but here are the links to my faves: here, here, here and here.
