Moving On...

Moments ago.. I was ready to document how I would go about moving on.
After trying so many times to fix the bridge that I myself have broken, I finally find myself wanting to accept things as how they are now.
But how do I document the "how to's" when the wounds are still too fresh?
How does one move on from a life that was expected to last forever?

I don't think I would be able to figure out any "how to's".
I'll just have to live one day at a time.
Pray ...that I will survive this.

It's Been a While...





2 days ago... our VP asked me if my blog is still up and running and if I have updated it recently. 
Nagulat naman daw ako. 
Imagine... big boss... checking if my site for chismiss is updated. 
Nyahahah. 
Na-inspire tuloy akong magpost ng bago. 
Tsk. 
I shall reserve my story writing on my upcoming days off.

Musings of a sleep deprived soul...

"My brother, I Morgan, is your loyal subject. I will support you on your quest to join the kingdom..."


As I watch the drama of Camelot unfold in my 24 inch TV (naks), I get to imagine things like: What is life outside of a call center? What else can I do before I reached an age too late to explore "what if"? 


I know that it seemed like the line from the Camelot series has nothing to do with my questions. But I would say that there is. The words that Morgan said echoes through my head... well, not exactly in the same dramatic words but...you know, the same sense. 
 I feel trapped where I am right now. I feel obligated to stay because of loyalty. URK.


But maybe I am just sleep deprived... thus these useless musings.

The Road So Far...

After 9 months since my last post, here I am again, checking on old posts, reading comments that I have failed to read when it was still fresh (thus I also failed to respond to catty remarks...urk!), reliving the fantasy of being the most famous blogger...blah blah blah.


It has been a busy busy busy life so far.
Don't get me wrong... it has been fruitful one. I am now earning 50k a month because I have been so busy getting my self up in the corporate ladder. But sometimes, I cannot help but think... is this everything? Am I going to spend the rest of my life enslaved to the demands of the call center that I am working for?


I looked out of the window and contemplated on these questions 5 minutes ago.
It hit me then...


No. I will not be satisfied by 13 hours a day sitting in an office surrounded by people who do not know what they are doing half of the time. I can do something else. I can...sell USANA Products.


YES! I can have more income by investing on health products!


Here are a couple of products that I am currently endorsing:


ESSENTIALS, POLY C, PROFLAVANOL, BIO OMEGA, COQUINONE, ACTIVE CALCUIM PLUS ... all manufactured to cater to promote better health for adults. 





SENSE beauty products. It includes facial cream, toner, whitening agents, anti-aging creams and other personal care products that are el-natural.






Wakoko....surprised? I rarely engage in advertising products that I do not trust and personally use. I know that this post is completely unlike any other posts that I have done before thus, all the more that you should trust it.
They are completely safe and they are very potent. They are a bit pricey but they are worth it since the effects ARE IMMEDIATE!


You can order them via this link: http://www.facebook.com/xielovi

Signing off for the mean time...

North Bound - Experience Vigan

It was something that we and Glen have planned since last year.
We wanted to explore what made the Northern Ilocos Region such a rage for local and foreign visitors alike.
Our ultimate destination was Pagudpod. I was in charge of the itinerary and I immediately knew that Glen would not be too happy if we had to drive 8 hours straight to our destination. He's not too much into long driving. He'd end up cranky and I'd be cranky too.
I have planned our path to be a lot more relaxing. Since I was also crazy for churches and history, I made sure that each car stop would have an interesting "old" place to discover.

VIGAN
We've been to Vigan a number of times already. The first time was just me and Glen. It was a magical moment because it was the very first time that I was so far away from home plus I was with someone who I was in love with!
The best thing about Vigan is that you feel transported back in time. Even the smell of the city feels so 15th century.
The conquering Spaniards actually set foot on this old city in June 12, 1572. There were tons of changes already since that time but I personally guarantee that you could still feel what it was like back then.
If you are conscious about your budget, don't be. It's a trip that would not only leave you fulfilled because of the sights but it would also make you think like you've spent so little to get to experience so much!

There are numerous hotels and lodges that you can choose from. We personally picked the Vigan Heritage Mansion because it is in the center of the city plus it had the comforts of the modern world (TV, hot and cold shower, fridge) but the aura of early 19th century. The budget per night would range from Php2,600 to Php4,000 for 2 people. This would include free breakfast for two already.

Other options would include Cordillera Inn Hotel, Grandpa's Inn, Casa Teofila Lodge, La Feliza Tourist Inn.

The places to visit are numerous!

Vigan Church








The Burgos Plaza








The Lake of Burgos Plaza








The Vigan Heritage Village








Bantay Church








The Bantay Bell Tower








Baluarte








Burnayan











Vigan's Hidden Garden








Crisologo Museum









and a lot more!

MOVIE MARATHON: Theme of my days off

I am 25 years old and I only get to have a break 2 days in a week. My work load makes me feel like I am already 50 and I should be taking the best out of any break that I get. I should be lounging in the nearest beach or maybe club hopping by night. I mean, come on! I need to get a life!

(Sigh)

Nonetheless, though I get to lead a less adventurous life, I try make it less boring. Last week, I watched PERCY and the LIGHTNING THIEF in SM Cinema. Aside from the improved print outs of the tickets, the movie was not really... hmmm.. memorable. It was more of a modernized version of the HERCULES adventures that I used to watch when I was kid. I actually enjoyed the trailers more.

I am currently looking forward to watching CLASH of the TITANS and COP OUT. The trailers of these particular movies showed off amazing utilization of screen effects that today's technology can offer.



While waiting for them, a while ago, I went off and watched other movies that came out late of last year. The PRINCESS and the FROG was a Disney cartoon film that featured a Black American Princess. It was a mix of Cinderella meets the Frog prince with a twist of Louisiana voodoo culture. It was a feel good movie and it made the idealistic girl in me believe in happy endings all over again.





Next movie was ALVIN and the CHIPMUNKS 2: The Squeakquel. I honestly liked PART 1 better. I could very much summarize the surprising parts into 2 things: the girl chipmunks that were also singers (but not really much because they litterally looked like girl versions of The Chipmunks) and the guest appearance of Charice Pempengco. It's basically a feel good movie for kids.





The LOVELY BONES had the deepest meaning amongst the movies that I've watched this past two weeks. It was a story about a 14 year old girl who could not move on in the after life because she wanted her murder to be brought to justice first. To lose a loved one over a senseless crime is probably one of the hardest thing that one has to go through. This movie showed how the girl's family struggled to heal and to understand that moving on does not mean forgetting. Watching it made me appreciate the fact that the members of my family are all whole and hearthy and that I would do anything to keep them safe.





The most intriguing was The FOURTH KIND. It had an atmosphere of truth to it. The director made the movie like an actual re-enactment. Alledged true to life videos of interviews with the abducted people of Nome, Alaska were also running side by side with the movie and if you are the type that really has an open mind... you might end up... believing. Watch it and see for yourself.
