Snatched and Scratched

Dear Juliet,

I've been wearing a necklace--i never take it off; not even during bath time--for more than 8 years. Only now have I experienced being snatched of one. A FIRST, I must say. It was a funny and scary experience at the same time.

I was at the back-most part of the jeepney, texting a contact for work. When the jeepney slowly came to a hault, I noticed a young man--a teenager--na nakasabit [Sorry, ano ba sa English ang nakasabit? Clinging? Hanging? LoL]. His hands were so fast! Next thing I knew, he jumped off the jeepney with my cute little star necklace in his hands.

What a bastard! He left a scratch on me! WHAT IF MAY RABIES SYA?! Baka bukas pagkagising ko, infected na ako, maloka, at bigla na lang manaksak ng evil, offensive, unreasonable, and inconsiderate people. Nyahahaha! ;p

Things happened so fast. Napasigaw talaga ako sa gulat. At heto pa, wa-poise lang talaga yung sigaw ko. Pang-horror yung effect eh; hindi pang-hold up na eksena. Hahaha! Good thing, may pumansin naman sa akin. The passenger seated in front of me was kind enough to ask me what happened. Because of him, I managed to calm down and be sane.

At the end of the day, it was better that he only got my cute little star necklace [which I only bought a few days back and loved a bunch, by the way. Huhu.] Remember, I was texting and buti na lang, hindi yung cellphone ang naisip nyang hablutin.

Lesson: Huwag masyadong mag mukhang mayaman. Yung sakto lang para iwas snatcher moments. Mwahahaha! ;p

You Know What's Disappointing?

Dear Juliet,

The company I'm currently working at is a sponsor of the Miss Philippines Earth 2012. We've put up an online voting album in our Facebook fan page dedicated to gather votes for the candidates. The votes in the said album will be added to the votes garnered by the contestants in the MPE Facebook fan page and the MPE Official website. The candidate who garners the highest number of votes wins the Ms. Photogenic and Ms. Ever Bilena titles.

What's disappointing is that people comment rudely against these contestants who are WOMEN--women who deserve RESPECT. As administrator of our fan page, it pains me to see tasteless, harsh, and degrading comments coming mostly from men and surprisingly, even from women. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? What do they get from posting useless comments?

GAHD! It's really infuriating. I am a woman myself and it really sucks to read demoralizing comments directed to fellow women and most especially, to fellow Filipinos. We are Filipinos and yet we lambaste our own countrymen? How can we even claim Filipino pride if we're barbaric like this?

To the ill-mannered bad mouthers:
THE CANDIDATES ARE WOMEN, MUCH LIKE YOUR MOM WHO GAVE BIRTH TO YOU!

Shheeesh!

Amazing April

Dear Juliet,

My life has been kinda lame and depressing the past few months, so let's make this April fantabulous, shall we? Let's forget about my quarter life crisis and try to make things more fun from here on. I've made my past years SPLENDID, so making this year AMAZING is gonna be a cakewalk for me.

FIRST
I've been missing a lot as far as staying fit is concerned. So this month, I have to make sure to workout more than thrice weekly. It's a good thing Elorde has opened a branch in Lagro, which is just a stone's throw away from home sweet home! It's along my usual route, so I can drop by after work. Yey! 

I haven't really gained much weight after more than a month of "gymlessness." In fact, I think I lost weight because of the adjustment of my body from the long commuting, and because of my new eating habit. But still, I need exercise to help me stay physically strong and active. Long hours of just sitting in front of the computer is not fun. I miss sweating like a man! Besides, all the cellulite forming in my tummy is painful to look at. So, I'm saying yes to boxing this month!

SECOND
I can't believe it's already April and I still haven't gone to any summer getaway! In April 2011, I was in Boracay with my HS Buddies. We were supposed to go to Zamboanga last February, but then it was the peak of my low moments, so I bailed. 

This April, I've already made plans with friends, so travel escapades are in order. Escaping a stressful job and a stressful life is really a must. Hopefully, my travel friends and I could push through with our getaways by next month. May the TRAVEL GODS and FORTUNE GODS be with us. Hehehe!

THIRD
I must learn to be thrifty so that by the end of the year, I will be able to get myself all the things I want. FIGHT!
