No Music

This is so annoying, I forgot to bring my earphones at work and now I’m stuck in the silence. No music to motivate me to work. Music is like my life and I can’t go on without it somehow. It’s like the soundtrack of my life. I think I better buy a new one if I have extra money and leave that one here at the office.

It’s a few days before christmas and I haven’t done any gift shoppiing for my family. It’s really hard to find a nice suitable gift you see. I’d like to give money instead but it’s different if there’s a lot of gifts under the tree and the exciting part of opening a gift adds to that. I was shopping yesterday but I ended up shopping for myself. 😛

I’m still trying to figure out where to go this last week of December. I already filed my leave for the the 29th and 30th and I wouldn’t want to waste it. Was supposed to go to Bicol with “Lakbay” on the 26th, but I have to accompany my sister to the airport on the 28th. Already have 2 choices though, it’s either I go to Sagada again, explore those places I failed to visit then and spend my New Year there, just for a change of scene, or go to Baler, Aurora which I haven’t been to really but I heard is quite a nice place. I have to wiegh both options which is more advantageous and cheap enough for me. Might go on a lonely planet again since no one around would be accompanying me.

Murder by Design

It’s been an eventful weekend. Well there’s the MBD (Murder by Design) conference, 1st in the Philippines where a number of designers converge and the top of the line graphic artist, motion graphic artist and Webdesigners share their working processes and procedures to give insight on how they work. Really enjoyed Robert Alejandro’s vast works on design both on books to architecture, Avid’s Ocho-ocho dance as well as his guidelines and sourcefiles on his MTV’s like Nina’s “Loving You”, Team Manila, Furball, Half Project…. Since this is the first I bet the next one would be much better. More pics at Philweaver’s Site. I’m in a couple of pictures there if can recognize me. Hehehe 😛

Murder by Design

Also something from our Company’s Xmas Party. Here we are singing our own version the “12 days of Xmas”, seriuosly at the stage with our painted animal masks. We only won the last place though. Hehe, since we only practiced our “IT dept’s 12 days of Xmas” that afternoon. But it was fun though.

No Rest for the Weary

My head is throbbing right now, it’s either those bar drinks, rio martini or those arctic’s got into my head or my sinus is killing me. Or also maybe my head is still pounding from that loud house music as I dance on the floor with my two left feet. Ahhh, just when I needed some rest I stayed another late night at our company’s Christmas party.

Well it was a somewhat fun party anyways, entertaining at least and those bar drinks was a nice taste.

A friend of mine lost his cellphone yesterday and it was funny that he wasn’t expecting to win anything. All his life he has never won a raffle and that night he won the first consolation prize raffle and he wasn’t expecting. Did the event of loosing his cellphone changed his luck?

Got this song playing in my head. Since I saw a localband “Hourglass” play this “Marilyn Scott” original, it somehow got stuck. Maybe it’s the message? Well here’s it’s lyrics, I would sing it to you If you can hear me. hehehe

If today were the last of all days
Would it change how you feel, who you are
Would you rise for a moment above all your fears
Become one with the moon and the stars

Would you like what you see looking down
Did you give everything that you could
Have you done everything that you wanted to do
Is there still so much more that would?

Follow your dream to the end of the rainbow
Way beyond one pot of gold
Open your eyes to the colors around you
And find the true beauty life holds

Would you live for the moment like when you were young
Time didn’t travel so fast
Be free in the present
Enjoying the now
Not tied to a future or past.

You would probably say all you wanted to say
But doesn’t is Strike you as strange
That we’d only begin to start living our lives
If today were the last of all days

“The Last Day”

Lyrics by: Brenda Russell/John Ewbank
From the CD “Avenues of Love” Artist: Marilyn Scott

Rest…

I think I’m going down with a Flu or fever, it’s been almost a week since I had my cough and colds, if it continues on I had to see a doctor by next week. It’s our christmas in a few hours and I don’t think I’ll stay that long. I need to rest so I’ll have energy tomorrow for the “Murder by Design” conference. I guess fatigue and exhaustion took it’s toll. My body is telling me to slow down a bit.

Had some wierd and funny dreams this morning, a series of dreams which I hadn’t had in a while. I guess I was too busy to mind them.

Gotta rest soon….

Corporate Christmas

Been busy lately, it seems that christmas parties are everywhere, left and right. Well as for us we’re busy thinking of a presentation for our “Safari” themed christmas. And we’re having a hard time…

What we thought of recently just for participation are our “animal” masks.

Sigh… lots to do….

Auditory Brainwash

I swear if I hear another note or song from Martin Nievera, I’ll just drop dead and vanish. Just this afternoon on my way home from Quiapo, I rode an FX back home, traffic was slow and the driver was playing 2 CDs of Martin Nievera over and over again that it’s kinda irritating. Maybe more than halfway towards home I had a breath of relief as he changed the cd only to find out that it’s the 3rd CD of Martin Nievera playing. What a fan he is!!!

Well anyways I can’t do anything about that. But I did manage to buy one of the things in my wish list, a Nextbase MDV1 Handy DVD Player. I could have gotten it cheaper by 300pesos but the stock at Watsons Electronics ran out just that morning and settled at the 2nd cheapest at Raon. Just tested it with DVDs, VCDs, MP3s, jpg files and Audio CDs and it’s working OK. Its small, slim and slick beauty!!!
