Journalling reads: I won't be having a chowful Christmas after all. I have been complaining months ago my aching erupting wisdom tooth and have guessed that it was impacted. Truly, my hunch was right. I just have my tooth extracted via an oral surgery five days before Christmas. My dentist (and me, of course) had a hard time with the operation that it lasted for two hours removing a single deeply positioned and angled tooth. She even had to inject anesthesia thrice in various spots of my gums throughout the surgery, thus, my left cheek and neck are swelling as if I have mumps. In addition to the pain I'm nursing right now, I guess I just have to bear with a "soup-ful" Christmas Noche Buena.

It seems like it was just yesterday when I vowed to be your wife..your better half to love, honor and take care of you until eternity. Time flew but I didn't notice it passed by as I was busy falling in love with you more and more each day as I wake up beside you. On our first year of wedded bliss, I reflect on the many things that we have shared. Lots of hopes and dreams were fulfilled, and wonderful memories made. I can't ask for a better man to share my life with as you're already the perfect piece to complete the puzzle of my life. I am forever grateful to God for blessing me with such a gentle man who loves me unconditionally. I thank the Lord for bringing us together..thankful for giving me a man who loves me even more than I love him. On our first year anniversary, I want you to know that I still remain true with the vows I made at the altar. I do and will always love and take care of you until the end of no end. I love you so much, my baby!

Journalling reads: It was my first Christmas Party with the CVG guys and it was a blast. Coming to the party all dressed up with an '80s theme, everybody was so game into it that all of us were clad in bright-colored-and-off-shouldered big blouses, large-buckled belts, denim mini-skirts, warm-coloredhigh socks or leggings, chuck taylor sneakers, teased bangs, big earrings, tucked-in fitted shirts topped with unbuttoned polo shirt, pinched-rolled or cuffed jeans. We also have this group presentation contest that was likewise 80s-themed. There were performances of Madonna, Michael Jackson, Cindy Lauper and even the Pinoy icon Hagibis. I'm just proud to say that our group won..must have been the group performance of Together Forever done Rick Astley style that mesmerized the judges. The food was awesome..various viands of beef and pork, fresh salad and the most salivating of all..the lechon (roasted pig) fresh from Cebu yum yum! In an instant..it was deboned to bits. There were also games participated by all and of course, the most awaited exchange gift were I got one of my christmas wishes, Nicholas Sparks' Dear John. Everybody went home tired but with smiles and new memories in tow. How I wish, such can be celebrated more often.

Apart from having that as my LSS, (last song syndrome)..I had the euphoric feeling that of an excited student on his first day of school this morning..only, for me, it has got to do with my first day of work. Brand new week, brand new day, brand new work. And how did it go? well, not much tasks yet, mostly...just some "tunganga" moments while reading a manual and familiarizing myself about the Purchasing Processes I'll be dealing with in the coming days and observing while I was oriented by a colleague whom I'll be sharing tasks with. Only she wasn't able to orient me fully yet as she has some urgent matters to attend to. So pasundot-sundot pa lang. While the things I'll be needing and my PC are being set-up, I also took the time to accomplish first the necessary HR, agency and bank forms for new hires. As Joy said, samantalahin habang wala pa ang workload, so savor the moment hehe!
As I had experience working for a call center also in the Finance Department before, I'm hoping I'd be able to adjust well with the culture and new working environment easily. Colleagues wise, I'm just fortunate to work again with two colleagues who used to be my close officemates way back my Contactpoint years. In fact, they are the ones who referred me to this job for the mean time as I'm waiting for my application with a government corporation. (So Tin, yep, I'm still pursuing my desire to work for the government hehe!) So at least, panatag ang loob ko kasi we pretty knew each other and go along well. I missed their company especially yung lunch outs namin kaya I'm just estatic to go through those again..in fact nagsimula na kanina hehe!
As for the workload I'd be having, I'm given a heads up and I'm expecting it's not gonna be a walk in the park. Anticipating such, in fact, made me miss my "batugan" life that ended yesterday. I'm missing my limitless sleeping, digiscrapping, surfing...though I have internet connection naman sa office but then siyempre alangan naman gawin ko mga yun haha! But then again, at least, I'd be wearing a big grin on my face come Oct 15, wouldn't I?
On a sad note, my heart is still weeping with yesterday's UAAP Finals Game 1 results between UST & Ateneo. Probably, you have read/seen the story on the news or even watched it how the Tigers almost had it but lost with a big mistake on the last second of the game (yes! as in 1 second). Darn! I was there in the coliseum and was one among the yellow gallery rejoicing when Allan Evangelista sank the shot that gave them the one-point lead with 2-3 seconds left. Early on with the game, it was one heck of a neck-to-neck battle...as in nagpapalitan lang ng lead. And who would've thought, the game will be decided on the last second of the Fourth Quarter as the Atenean Kramer sank the ball easily from a genius play designed by their Coach. As the Tigers' Coach Pido said, nakalimutan ang depensa. They learned their lesson in a hard way..but then..it ain't over 'til it's over. May Game 2 pa and I'm sure the Tigers will be back with a vengeance on Thursday. As they say, pag nadadapa, lalong nacha-challenge at nagiging matapang..Anyway, win or lose, the UST Tigers have already proven their abilities this season...kaya:
Black gold, black white
Go fight, fight, fight
and win for U-S-T!!!!!

1.) I will be making a comeback to the corporate world and start reporting for work on Monday after enjoying a "queen" / SAHW (stay-at-home-wife) lifestyle for five months. Just to correct those who posted comments on my previous entry, I will be working for a call center but not as an agent, particularly I'll be connected with its Finance Department so no shifting schedules for me there..just the regular office hours of 8am-5pm.

You’ve always been there for me through the good & bad times. Always my strength when I’m weak, my soul uplifter when I’m down, my number one proud fan for every triumph. You’ve always made me feel how lucky I am to be loved...little did you know, I’ve always loved you much more than you love me.

On another note, I'm also making a shoutout to our bunso "baby" brother (who's not a baby anymore as he's been wooing us that he may be permitted to drive our old conking car for his 17th birthday). Happy Birthday, Kuya Rely! (Hmm..9/11 attack anniv hehe!) Yes we call him kuya as he's the only "astiging" bunsong unico hijo in the family. He's also been charming me that he'd be given a guitar and requesting me din to digiscrap his pic daw...daming demands ah! (I'm still working on your digiscrap, ok? Upload ko pag oks na). I love u, kuya! Ngapala, ayan another wish granted...i've blogged about you haha!

This is Tin, the younger sister I never had..the sole "kind-hearted" challenger among my oh-so-many blogger friends out there who bravely took my dare. (hehe! nagparinig na naman).
So Tin, I just want to affirm that you have indeed a pretty life with a pretty face. Keep on shining with your positive aura. God Bless!

This is Nicole. A six-year-old cutie kid who was one of the flower girls in my wedding. I just love how Kenneth Uy, our photographer, captured her pouting moment. I can't think of a better caption than this. :)

On another hand, I got another excuse for not blogging lately. Our DSL connection here at home (Makati) has been screwing up lately. You're deeply immersed in your surfing thoughts..the next thing you know you're disconnected and could not reconnect even if you've shut down and restarted the pc. Kinabukasan ka na makakareconnect kaya good luck talaga. I already reported this to the PLDT DSL helpdesk, but to no avail, this keeps on recurring still.

I felt better in the evening pero si Paul still burning hot with fever. We stayed in the hotel and just killed time chit-chatting, reminiscing HS days, tuksuhan and chikahan and everything while we watched HBO's House of Wax. Genil and JR went to Pier 1 midnight to experience Bora gimik weekend nights while the three of us stayed and dozed off.
