Boring Day at Work!

Thursday, July 31, 2008

Today, I got up late and hurriedly went to the office. I woke up at around 7am and got to the office by 8:10am (pretty fast eh? to think that I came all the way from Paco, Manila and the office is at Market Market, Taguig).

Anyway, I started my day at work by having breakfast with my co-trainees at ASTI. I ate my cereals then I went back to my desk. We were suppose to start the installation of PeopleSoft in the Application Server, Database and to the Virtual Machine (Windows NT) but then, they can't find where the license key is. They don't even know who keeps the CD installers from Oracle. I don't know what my expression would be. They kept on passing us to other people to get the information. Finally, we found the CD installers but still do not have the license keys!
Later on, I got an email from Francis, the PS Admin, he got the license keys from the Oracle.

Now, we are all set! We can now start installing... then, I started to access the putty and xmanager comparing what to use for easy installing. When the connection failed! Okay, they have not yet fixed it.. we still have to wait.. wait until forever

What I did today? Document and listed all the installers they have so that next time, we won't have to download it from the internet. Its more productive to have a list of reference of what you already have right?

Quote of the day 26

"Some won't appreciate what you say or do, but as long as you speak honestly from the heart, you'll be fine.
This is not a perfect world...
This is not a perfect life...
But life loves the person who dares to live it by being real. "

Missing the game I love the most..

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

After a long sleep from the gaming world, last night I tried to siege again. I missed my friends a lot! Seeing the in-game characters makes me feel like I am seeing them in person. The fun, the 'kulitans' during the siege is what I miss the most.

Playing with my character makes me feel like we're as one. It made me release the stress from work. I had fun last night. I wish I could spend more time in playing with them. I miss the old times when we hang out at our tambayan just to have fun with each other. I miss the prontera market. Oh, I love roaming around and bargain for the cheapest price I could get.

But.. everything's a little bit different now. We're all growing old. We all have our personal lives to manage but the memories that we all shared through the years will remain forever... and forever that game will be in our hearts.

I am so glad that the friends that I've met through this game are the ones that I could turn to in the real world.

I love you Armada-Goonz family..
I love you Spammers!
I love you Datsoy..

Quote of the day 25

Sometimes goodbye becomes a necessity, not because i just want to be free from commitments and be free to flirt with anyone, I'd like. but it's accepting the fact that I'm just too tired of fighting for something that isn't meant to be.

The Amazing Goldstein

The Amazing Goldstein
A traveling salesman visits a small town in the Midwest and sees a circus banner reading, "Don't Miss the Amazing Goldstein!" Curious, he buys a ticket and sits through the usual circus acts: animals, clowns, contortionists, etc. Suddenly, trumpets blare and all eyes turn to the center ring. There, in the middle of the ring, is a table with three walnuts on it.

In comes a little old Jewish man, five feet five inches tall, and barely able to walk to the table. He unzips his pants, whips out an impressive prodigious member, grabs it in his hand, and proceeds to smash all three walnuts with three mighty swings! The crowd erupts in thunderous applause as the elderly Goldstein is carried off on the shoulders of the clowns.

Ten years later, the same salesman visits the same little town and sees the same circus being advertised with the same (now faded) banner reading, "Don't Miss the Amazing Goldstein!" Our friend the salesman can't believe the old guy is still alive, much less still doing his act! So, he buys a ticket and sits through the various acts, waiting for the big finale. Finally, the center ring is illuminated. This time, instead of walnuts, three coconuts are on the table.

As before, old Goldstein takes forever to make it to the table. He unzips his fly and proceeds to smash the coconuts with three swings of his amazing schlong. The crowd goes wild! The salesman requests a meeting with him after the show. In Goldstein's dressing room, the salesman tells him he's never seen anything like Goldstein's act. He wants to know why Goldstein, at his age, is now smashing large coconuts instead of the much smaller walnuts.

"Velllll," says Goldstein, wearily .................................

"My eyes ain't vhat they used to be!"

The Gravy Ladle

The Gravy Ladle

An elderly priest invited a young priest over for dinner. During the meal, the young priest couldn't help noticing how attractive and shapely the housekeeper was. Over the course of the evening he started to wonder if there was more between the elderly priest and the housekeeper than met the eye. Reading the young priest's thoughts, the elderly priest volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, my relationship with my housekeeper is purely professional."

About a week later the housekeeper came to the elderly priest and said, "Father, ever since the young Father came to dinner, I've been unable to find the beautiful silver gravy ladle. You don't suppose he took it do you?" The priest said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll write him a letter just to be sure."

So he sat down and wrote: "Dear Father, I'm not saying that you 'did' take a gravy ladle from my house, and I'm not saying you 'did not' take a gravy ladle. But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner."

Several days later the elderly priest received a letter from the young priest which read: "Dear Father, I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with your housekeeper, and I'm not saying that you 'do not' sleep with your housekeeper. But the fact remains that if you were sleeping in your own bed, you would have found the gravy ladle by now."

Sneaky Drinking

Sneaky Drinking

One night a police officer was staking out a particularly rowdy bar for possible violations of the driving-under-the-influence laws.

At closing time, he saw a fellow stumble out of the bar, trip on the curb and try his keys on five different cars before he found his. Then sat in the front seat fumbling around with his keys for several minutes. Everyone else left the bar and drove off.

Finally he started his engine and began to pull away. The police officer was waiting for him. He stopped the driver, read him his rights and administered the Breathalyzer test.

The results showed a reading of 0.0. The puzzled officer demanded to know how that could be.

The driver replied, "Tonight I'm the designated decoy."

Invisible Girl

Yesterday was quite a tough day. I am not feeling good, I have colds and a little fever but still I have to go to work. I had a very irritating day with lots of task to do. People are too lazy to do things that they depend on me. Argh! I hate it when you will just type it on Google but still you have to ask me to do it.

I had a very sad day and I don't have anyone to turn to. Well, I talked to my boyfriend and he told me to do things that would make me happy. So I was thinking of something fun. I thought of writing here in at my blog. When I opened my browser, my default page loaded, Google, well I remembered the movie I watched lately, the title is Wanted, the guy googled himself and found nothing. Then I thought of doing the same. Am I a nobody like him? Things like that popped out of my mind. So there, I found quite a number of results and found myself. Huurrraay! I can be found over the web! Haha. I was so amazed and googled a lot of people I know including my boyfriend. Well, I found a site with a couple of information about him and I messaged him, Hey! You didn't tell me that you were the outstanding athlete when you were still in high school. Stuff like that. Well, he thought that I was talking to someone he knew. I didn't want to tell him about the site I found but I told him that I am not talking to someone he knew. He wouldn't believe me. Later on, he got mad because he told me that I was disturbing him. So there, I logged out and found myself alone again... sad. Hay buhay bakit ba ganito ang nangyayari.. Well, there are a lot of things that happened and my day didn't turned out to be alright.

After work, I found myself walking along the streets thinking of a lot of my problems. I just couldn't stand what's happening. Para nga akong tangang naglalakad kung saan saan. Anyway, when I got tired I finally went home. To my surprise, I hear people shouting when I get home so I just went straight to my room. No one cared if I was there, if I already ate, if I was feeling okay. I never felt so alone in my life. I wish my dad was here..

Feeling Alone and Sick

Monday, July 7, 2008

The weekend was quite different. I've been sick for the past 3 days. Since friday, I was not feeling well but no one believed me. My officemates think that I am just thinking about it. When I get home, my body gave in. I've been taking good care of myself since then. Saturday, I went to my boyfriends' place. We were both sick. We took care of each other and later on, we were just passing the virus.. he's sick then i'm feeling well, then i'll be sick then he'll be feeling well and so on. When I came home, I'm still sick. Haha! I had a sorethroat and until now, it hasn't been cured.

Today, I am feeling sad. I'm feeling alone and empty. Why do I have to feel this way? I feel like my boyfriend is there but not really there. He's been acting weird. I am feeling that I needed someone by my side. But, I don't know what to do or how to handle things lately..

Oh, I just want to sleep and forget everything

Would You Remarry

Would You Remarry

"Dear," said the wife. "What would you do if I died?"

"Why, dear, I would be extremely upset," said the husband. "Why do you ask such a question?"

"Would you remarry?" persevered the wife. "No, of couse not, dear" said the husband.

"Don't you like being married?" said the wife. "Of course I do, dear" he said.

"Then why wouldn't you remarry?"

"Alright," said the husband, "I'd remarry."

"You would?" said the wife, looking vaguely hurt. "Yes" said the husband.

"Would you sleep with her in our bed?" said the wife after a long pause.

"Well yes, I suppose I would." replied the husband.

"I see," said the wife indignantly." And would you let her wear my old clothes?"

"I suppose, if she wanted to" said the husband.

"Really," said the wife icily. "And would you take down the pictures of me and replace them with pictures of her?"

"Yes. I think that would be the correct thing to do."

"Is that so?" said the wife, leaping to her feet. "And I suppose you'd let her play with my golf clubs, too."

"Of course not, dear," said the husband. "She's left-handed."

Quote of the day 22

What Oprah says about MEN:
If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.
If he doesn't, nothing can make him stay..

Never let him know everything, he will use it against you later..
He is a man, nothing more, nothing less. You should never look for someone to complete you, a relationship consists of two whole individuals.

Make him miss you sometimes, when a man always know you are and that you're readily availabe, he will take you for granted...

Cream Cheese Wonton with Sweet and Sour Dip

  • 1 – 8 oz. package of cream cheese softened
  • 16 – Wonton Wrappers
  • Oil for Frying
  • 1 – Jar of Sweet and Sour sauce for dipping

Procedure:
  • Heat oil in a deep-fat fryer or pour into a deep skillet on high temperature. Vegetable oil or peanut oil works best.
  • While oil is heating, lay out as many wrappers as you plan to use.
  • Have a small bowl of water nearby to wet your fingers in.
  • Put a small dab of cream cheese in one corner of each wrapper, about 1/2” from the edges. Use about 1 tsp.
  • Using your fingers, wet the two edges nearest the cream cheese, then fold the other half down and seal the edges, making a triangle shape.
  • Seal the edges tightly, but try to leave small gaps at the corners so the triangles will not expand so much that they burst.
  • Drop several wontons into oil at a time. Turn over when the edges start to brown and cook for another minute or two.
  • Set on paper towels to drain, then serve hot with sweet-and-sour sauce.

What path should I take?

Oh, another day at the office. What an exciting day it is! (in a sarcastic tone) What's new today? Err, I'll just sit around and try to research on the things needed for our Blackberry project with Globe. I feel so bored because I am done with the research that is assigned to me. I wanted to go home and have a good sleep or watch a good movie.

I've been thinking about what I really want to happen in my life. Do I want to stay here in the office where my boss sees only his favorites or do I go somewhere else? If I go somewhere else, where would I be? Will I accept the offer of my Dad to open up a new business? Well, I think it would be good but I'm too afraid that I might fail. I don't want to disappoint my parents. I just don't know what to do...
