Million Ways to Say – Thank You!

Posted in Personal with tags on December 3, 2008 by engrlouraine


Too many ways to say thank you to the ones we love that we often forget to do so. Many times we just take them for granted knowing that they will be there for us and its a big mistake.

How will they feel if we give them a tap on their shoulder? How about a kiss in the morning and before going to sleep. A hug, is much that I do appreciate especially if it came from my dear king.

Obviously, I miss my man. Can’t think of anything that will simply equate the things he has done for our family. I’m always missing him. And its a bit hard that we can’t get to do the things we wanted to, to make thim feel that we are blessed and thankful of him.

During the night, my mind is traveling, enjoying the days spent when he was around. We miss the fun and everything about him.

Today is his special day. I can’t think of anything to do because of distance. I hope this simple post will somehow make him feel that he is special and always remembered. Happy birthday!

Sometime again, we will be together. And we are greatly anticipating for that day!

Go ahead and show your own way to express how much you appreciate your loved ones. There are million ways to do them,  do at least one and much more better if you show them all your way.

So Upset

Posted in Personal on November 19, 2008 by engrlouraine

I don’t really want things the way it is now, was so upsetting that people broadcast of who and who you are in the manner that they like without even understanding that what they were saying was really untrue and it hurts when you here it from a friend and just stub you at your face for no reason at all after sharing lunch. *sigh* not really good. Anyhow, was just their stand and I have no way to be heard because they just see me as they wanted to see who I am. Still with the connection with Chismis sa Office. Walang kamatayang issue! Who cares!  So what to worry? They give you nothing but bad impressions and feeling like they are on top of the world because they felt they were right? I really don’t think so. Just minding their stand out-from-nowhere on a good lunch! So pathetic!

I know I am not perfect and that things were just that, duhhhhhhhhh!! My regrets being in this office where alligators and backbitters live over good times! lagota oi! Anyway, Thats just fine with me as long as they uplift their spirits, so be it.

Things weren’t just the things that it used to. After the passed days over agony of your child taking medicines in the morning for pneumonia just kills you and what now?

As they say, when it rains it pours. This I have to bear and be happy and be thankful of the people who may have hurt you because they are BLESSINGS that we may not see for now. Just have to accept that we have to drop and gain friends.

Have to just simply be who I am! I have to let it pour here, got no one to listen to, maybe just you.


I wish to be like melody who says:  NO COMMENT! awww WA LAGI KO KABALO ANA (Hindi ko alam yan ah) —peace!

Chismis Sa Office

Posted in Personal with tags on November 18, 2008 by engrlouraine

Have you ever been the star of your office that it feels like you have the longest hair in the world? Sounds crazy but I was once in the hot seat of gossipers at this office. Whew!

The story came out like this, as per told, they say that I go “sip-sip” with the Big boss just to stay extended for work because we are just contractual workers, we need renew contract every 3-6 months, depende kung pa extend ka pa in accordance to your works load.

What is with these people that they keep throwing me stone and backbites? They can’t face it, I still stay because I still have work to finish for terminal reports and everything that is until end of December.  People sucks just because they envy you. Just making my hair go longer and wondering “do they hate me for what?

Here’s the point, work outside this office is waiting and moreso if not I can always go home and farm, so what? At least I have something to cultivate and keep my fingers working. *sigh*

What’s with those people who could not just work and make themselves productive? So what the heck I’m staying until December so that’s it. There was these times that I wanted to file resignation but I could not. I am too arrogant if that would be the case and ungrateful of the things offered before me and was just thinking of “those” people. Silly me!

Hayy, as they say I am still a neophyte. Things are different at school and at work (though was here for a year yet I still don’t get it).

People tend to say and do things just to make you feel small and unwanted. Anyhow, if this is how working place is then I should be more stronger and firm and just do the my thing and learn how to let it pass from one ear to another. (That’s what I am doing now, letting it pass).

How would it be like if…

This weekend we will be spending All Saints Day and All Souls Day at my hometown in Mati City, Davao Oriental that’s about four hours with a bus from Davao City.

Hmmm missing my mother–hood ahihihih. No kidding aside, we will be visiting our mother’s grave since me and my brother are based here in Davao City. We lost her due to Cervical Cancer that was January 26, 2000. But still, she visits us, through our dreams! hehhehe thought of something else? I miss mama Nida! hayyyy. How would it be like if my mother is still around? I missed those times and envy others who gets to hug, kiss and enjoy their moms. But anyway, life gets no stops and pause. Live life and learn to treasure people.

Another thing, we will be visiting our lola’s place too and other relatives. In a year, we go home once or twice a year. Its hard to go home for several reasons. I’m sad about that, but looking forward to visiting them again.

And also, I am expecting pinches from my aunts and uncles whom I think misses me for my wackoness and childishness. ahhhhh..

Happy vacation! mwah

Lazy Days

Posted in Personal with tags , on September 11, 2008 by engrlouraine

I’m having a bad week. hayyy. I just don’t want to go out and be at the office and do the same task everyday *sigh* Things like starting to go boring. I feel like there are no growth and that I feel my brain cells are all stuck-up. Grrr!

I’ve been lazy posting anything on this blog. I have lots on mind but I just could not start writing to pour out what I have been thinking and feeling right now.

My officemate Melody said that what I am now is of Quarter life crisis. Me feeling like I like to resign from work. Feeling like I don’t know what to feel hahahahhaha.. sounds like i’m going out a little tormented but I am not.

Starting to fuel up again!

Bought a new camera

Posted in Gadgets, Personal, Photography with tags , on July 25, 2008 by engrlouraine

I have been saving to buy myself a digital camera since shooting with your cellphone camera is not enough especially when in special occasions. Pay day last July 15, 2008 I had my eye again at the store where I unintentionally passed by and saw my wished digicam. The salesman changed the prized tag from PhP **,*** to less PhP5,000 and because I was planning to buy one and my money is just enough to buy the product with new price tag. I bought it. I am so happy that something tangible was from my work pay. Yeba!

Wearing High Heels

Posted in Personal with tags on June 24, 2008 by engrlouraine

I bought a new pair of high-heel-shoes last december and I wore it just today. Trying to transform my boyish image, I tried it on. In the morning on my way office everything is just fine coz I feel really feminine (LOL) but as hours passed by, i feel pain. And because canteen was out because of the sportsfest held outside the office we run to the nearest carenderia (30m away). So I have to bear the walking in the highway with the heat on because it was noontime. It really got my endurance tested, my feet hurts. It sores because I was not used to wearing high heels and my feet best suit step in sandals or betteryet with my rubber shoes. haaaayyyy. As we went back the office, my sandals burst out hahhahaha another thing to laugh about. I had it repaired with the help of Kuya Johnny. Going home is another torture, instead of riding a jeepney I opted to ride on a taxi cab. I feel better taking off those turtoring heels. Quite an experience for this day! Should I wear high heels again?
