Battling over whether to buy a wrist watch or not. I like those plastic ones, like baby g's. Looks like g-shock but not as expensive. I wonder if I should buy a g-shock instead. RTO starts on Sunday. I need a watch.
I remember years ago, I had a JP interpreter gig in one of Casio G-shock's events. I met the G-shock inventor, Sir Kikuo Ibe. He was so nice and humble, as expected from a Japanese. Funny though, the event was Casio, and one of Ibe-san's attendants jokingly mentioned that my jissho was Sharp and not Casio. LOL. It got me pretty embarrassed, but I was glad they were all good-natured people.
Should I buy a G-shock? Namiss ko bigla si Ibe-san. I still have his calling card.
Mom bought me Seiko 5 watch as a gift for my birthday years back. It was around 5k then. Now it costs around 8k. Mom said I shouldn't wear it outside as it might get snatched. I feel like it's such a waste having this watch and not being able to wear it. Maybe Mom was just exaggerating. I mean, if you're holding a cellphone worth 8k, I don't think anyone will bother snatching something that cheap.
I'll probably just wear my Seiko 5. It's just annoying that if you stop wearing it for a few hours, the time will stop moving also. I mean, it's nice that I will never need to replace the battery for life, but it's still a hassle that it keeps on stopping on certain conditions.
Gusto ko ng G-shock.
Mel and I are planning to go on vacay by June. It's been a long time since I went out. Mel's a cowboy adventurous type. I am the lazy and extremely maarte type. I think I can somehow adjust sa mga trip nya. Afterall, she always adjusts for my food preferences. She asked if I'm okay sleeping on a tent. I told her I prefer a bedroom with AC, but I'm willing to try.
Kinakabahan ako sa tent. Sana hindi malamok at walang ahas. Sana may ma meet kaming pogi. Haha!
Checked Casio's Flagship store in Shopee. Apparently, most G-shock watches are even pricier than a Seiko 5. Will it get snached if I buy one? Is this even pawnable?
I remember when Sir Kikuo Ibe was having a tour here in the Philippines. They launched a limited-edition Pinoy themed G-shock watch. It looked so nice, Partner and I were hoping to get one as freebie. Sadly, we didn't. I didn't find anything similar on the Casio shop.
Must be nice to have a G-shock. 'Guess will just buy it later, pag mayaman na mayaman na ko.

Watched the anime, movie, and OVA.
That was nice. Huhu.
Jeez, I'm really getting sucked in this whole BL vortex.

12:01 AM. It's no longer Wednesday.
A few hours ago, I finished watching "Love Hard" in Netflix. Kahit predictable, na enjoy ko pa rin.
Was on SL today—technically yesterday. Had a long-overdued follow-up check up with my eent. Lump in my throat. Mom has this bigger lump in her own throat, so I brought her along. From how the conversation we had with the doc went, Mom will probably go on a major operation. I'm hoping that mine will still be the same as how it had been for the last 3-4 years. Kasi naman, wala na kong leave. If I'd undergo a major operation, 2 weeks daw ang recovery period, meaning, 2 weeks akong walang sahod. We need money.
Bahala na. We'll be getting the results tomorrow. Sabi ng doc, if the lump is bigger than 1.5 cm, then kailangang operahan. Mine was 0.0xx cm 2 years ago. Nung kinapa ng doc, wala naman daw syang nasalat. Sana maliit parin.
Hereditary daw ang sakit na to. Kaya siguro parehas kami ni mama. I hope that my brother's children will not have this. My nephew, Kyler, has an inborn blood disease already. Pero mainam parin na macheck.
I'm glad that I enrolled Mom sa HMO namin at work. Wala na kong iintindihin sa gastos. Problema lang e yung mga house chores that mom usually do. She said she'll get a maid. Sana makakuha kami. She plans to have my tita find us a maid from their province. Hindi lang ako pabor na isasama nya pa yung tita ko rito sa bahay pag hinatid nya na yung maid. I get along with my other titas, i just don't like this tita in particular. I don't hate her. Ayoko lang na tumira sya ulet dito. Mom and I had a little argument because of this kanina.
Naiirita ako sa mga kamag-anak ng mama ko lately. Yung iba kasi kung makahingi ng pera sakin, hindi man lang nahiya e. I mean, it's kinda normal if they will ask my mom for money. Pero sakin? Seriously?
Ewan. Kahit yung mga bata dun, hindi ko naman inaanak, nanghihingi ng pamasko. Kahit load daw. Ako nga di naglo load e.
Aminado naman ako na mejo madamot talaga ko. Bukod don, ayoko rin talaga sa kanila. Wala akong binigyan kahit isa. Bwahaha!
I want to give my family a good life. By "family", I mean my parents, my brother and his family, and our pets—yun lang. It doesn't extend to my titos and titas, up to their apos sa tuhod. No way!
Takot ang mama ko sa dugo, injections, and things related to that. When we were at the hospital talking about her possible operation, I held her hand to check if it was cold out of fear—hindi naman.
We had a neck ultrasound and blood test. 1st time pala ng mama ko na magpa ultrasound. I asked her kung di ba sya inultrasound nung pinanganak kami ng kapatid ko. Sabi nya hindi daw, dahil walang pera.
I'm just glad that I have money now. That Mom doesn't have to worry about anything anymore.
Universe, I'm truly grateful. Maraming salamat.
Also, pengi pa ng mas maraming pera.

18th day of the month, working from home.
Kahapon, bumili akong coke zero at vanilla ice cream na ginawa kong coke float kanina. Palaisipan sakin kung bakit magkaiba ang lasa ng coke zero sa plastic bottle vs coke zero sa can.
Yung nasa plastic bottle lasang may lason. Huhu.
Mas mura ang ang coke zero sa shopee. Free shipping, may cash back pa, hindi ka pa mahihirapan magbitbit.
Bibili dapat ako ng pang scoop ng ice cream. Naisip ko, pwede naman mag kutsara nalang. Kailangan mag tipid.
Hindi talaga wise. Pero nag aalala akong ipaampon yung mga kuting ko. Pero ayoko rin tipirin ang parents ko. Kaya siguro magtitipid nalang ako sa mga bagay na pwede naman tipirin. Syempre, kailangan ko rin maghanda para sa kinabukasan.
May mga nabasa ako sa mga cat adoption group na mga taong andaming inaadopt na kuting tapos ipapakain sa alaga nilang ahas. I can't let that horror happen to my cat's offsprings.
Hayyyst. Kaya ko to.
The new year brings so much promise. Universe, pahingi ng extra income na 2 million pesos per month, para hindi magutom ang mga pusa ko, at makakain parin kami ng masasarap na pagkain.
2022 will be the 10th year since Dad had a stroke. I've once read a comment from someone who lost a dad. Her dad survived stroke daw. He lived for 10 years pa tas na deds na. I've heard other stories from family members who've lost their loved once, 10 years after surviving stroke.
My dad is a goofy man. Pero pag nakasimangot sya, it's either galit sya, or may masamang nararamdaman. Lately whenever Dad is making that mainit ulo face, I'd ask him if he's feeling fine. After non, ngingiti at magkukulit na. Ewan ko kung pinipilit nya lang ba para di kami mag-alala. He often sways when he walks. His feet seems very weak. Pero in fairness naman sa tatay ko, pag umaakyat kami ng hagdan, mas ako pa yung hinihingal kesa sa kanya.
Sana praning lang ako. Dad was actually very healthy before he had a stroke. Madalas nyang sabihin na healthy body daw sya. In fairness again sa kanya, sya yung pinakamabilis na nakarecover noongmagkaron kaming lahat ng COVID-like symptoms.
Sana maging healthy si Papa forever. Sana si Mama rin. Sana laging healthy ang buong pamilya namin. Ako nang bahala sa pagpapa wealthy naming lahat. Basta sana kompleto at healthy kami forever.
2022. Kailangan magplano, kumilos, at magpursigi para sa mga pangarap.

Meron promo yung Amex card ko. Every time I spend on a restaurant for at least 2k within the promo period, I'll get a cashback of 500. So parang pag kumain ako sa halagang 2k, 1500 lang babayaran ko. Not bad.
When my parents and I eat out, max na yung 1400 na bayad sa kinakain namin kahit mag take out pa. Hindi naman kasi kamahalan ang mga resto dito sa Bulacan. So I told my mom, I'll bring them somewhere nicer and she was like, "sa Solaire nalang".
Mom saw a picture of her old workmate in Solaire. Nagpicture lang ng food pero di kumain. Mahal daw kasi. I think my mom just want to show na sya e afford nya. Kahit ako naman talaga ang magbabayad. Lol.
Dahil malayo sa bahay, gusto rin ni mama na mag check-in nalang sa hotel. Checked and found na Solaire is fully-booked till forever. Looked for something else, and found Okada. Afford naman. Masakit nga lang sa damdamin yung presyo. I showed mom how much it costs, and she was like, "pang isang buwan na stay na ba yan?" LOL.
She also made me check kung magkakano abutin if lahat kami pupunta kasama yung kapatid ko plus wife and kids. The suite that will fit us all is worth a whopping P175,000!!! LOL. I think we can just book 2 connecting cheaper suites. That will be so much cheaper.
Of course, nauwi nalang ulet sa pangarap ang lahat.
But still, gusto ko talaga na a day will come na I can comfortably spend that much for myself and my family. Yung walang akong mafifeel na panghihinayang dahil I have a lot of money already.
Naalala ko lang yung mga bagay na pangarap ko lang dati. My family was poor. Kahit nung newly employed na 'ko hindi parin namin afford kumain sa buffet. I remember passing by City Buffet sa mall, and we were like, "kelan kaya tayo makakain dyan?"
Now, we can afford so much more.
Pangarap ko na one day, itong pangarap kong makapag hotel sa Okada ay magiging alaala nalang din...
dahil natupad na.

It's a really difficult day today. The appointment with the vet was 7:30. Mejo late syang dumating. My cat's surgery ran for just an hour, pero pakiramdam ko, sobrang haba ng araw na to.
Napaiyak ako when I saw how scared Iya was before the surgery. Sabi pa ng doctor, may resistance sya sa anesthesia kaya umiyak daw during operation. Awang awa ako sa pusa ko.
When we got home, she was very scared and didn't seem to recognize me. Seeing her looking so weak from the operation, naiyak na naman ako. Tas nung around 12 na when I'm supposed to make her eat and drink water, naiyak na naman ako dahil ayaw nyang kumain.
Siguro ang nakakaiyak e yung lumaki ng ganito yung pusa ko at never ko syang napalo, only to cause her this much pain dahil lang sa ayoko syang magkaanak. Kahit ilang sorry pa yung sabihin ko sa pusa ko, parang di sapat na compensation para sa pain na pinagdadaanan nya.
I've seen a lot of pages na nag aadvocate ng kapon sa mga hayop, at gets ko naman ang pinaglalaban nila. Hindi ko lang maisip kung paano nila nakayanang makitang ganito yung kundisyon ng alaga nila. Ang hirap. Sobrang hirap.
Hindi kumain si Iya the whole day today. Sabi ng doc, normal daw na walang ganang kumain sa 1st 3 days after ng surgery. Nakakapag alala parin. She used to cry for food less than an hour after getting fed. Madali kasi syang magutom. Tapos ngayon, biglang hindi na sya kumakain.
Problema ko pa kung paano ko sya paiinumin ng gamot bukas. Baka magwala yun, baka bumuka yung sugat. Paano pag di parin sya kumakain?
Sighs, hindi ko talaga alam.
Natatakot akong mawala sakin ang pusa ko. Sana makayanan namin to ni Iya.

I'm scared, Universe.
Yesterday, someone went to our store and requested for a gcash money transfer, and ran off without paying.
Today naman, there were 2 people who called claming they were scammed money that was transferred to our gcash, and all the transfers were claimed by the same person. When I checked mom's messager, someone had sent her a message na rin pala last month with the same complaint. This time, with the full name of the person involved. Their transactions look nowhere near legal. We have filed a formal complaint to the cyber crime online. Ipapablotter din namin ang taong ito bukas. Nakakatakot, my God. Sana praning lang kami. Naiisip ko kasi na baka abangan nalang kami papunta sa baranggay.
Earlier, I sat beside mom to tell her I'm scared and rested my head on her shoulder half jokingly. She shrugged my head off her shoulder, so I went to my room and hugged my kittens instead. I wish that they'd live well no matter what happens to me.
The last complainant I talked to made me all the more scared. Natatakot talaga ko.
Dad earlier thought that we were just being OA. Until more complaints came, now he's refusing to say anything, all because we challenged his opinion.
I wish the supposed head of the house was not this immature. I also wish he had more spine. I understand that he's old. I just wish he have more conviction. Or at least the power to make us feel safe, even if it's not true. I don't know. Though we're still not on speaking terms, I had to rely on my brother's backbone because I had no other choice.
I hate spineless men.
I can feel how Mom is trying to keep my brother out of this though. I know she's protecting her favorite child, so she plans to endure this alone with her less favorite one (myself). I remember her saying na hindi nya daw kaya kung may mangyari kay kuya. I guess she's okay if it's me.
Ok lang. I just want to get through all these. I'm just so worried about my kittens. What will happen to them if I die?
This also made me realize that if I am to live independently, I need to grow stronger spine than this in order to protect myself and the things (animals) that I care about.
It's one thing to feel alone, you know., But to feel alone even when you're with your people is another. It's way sadder. Tapos alone ka na nga, scared ka pa. Ang saya! Haha. Huhu.
Please pray for me.

I woke up 5:30 am today with barely any sleep. I was browsing the net for ways to cure my kittens and I came accross an article that showed a lost of symptoms that if you found in your kittens, you need to send them to the vet immediately daw. My kittens have those symptoms.
I was worried the entire night, I slept past 1am, yet woke up even before the alarm rang. Was too worried to eat breakfast, I left the house with my kittens with an empty stomach. Pag balik ko, lunch time na, but needed the leave again to buy meds.
Sobrang nakakapanic ang araw na to. Nicai seemed a little better, but the other kitten, Iya, looked more lethargic than ever, samantalang kahapon mas masigla pa sya kesa kay Nicai. Feeling ko tuloy nakasama pa na dinala ko sila sa vet. Huhu.
Both of them were vomitting, though si Nicai, mas receptive sa water na may dextrose powder, and she's also eating. It was around past 2pm when I had my first decent meal of the day, then halfway the meal, Mom called me out telling me na naghihingalo na daw si Iya.
Hayst. Ewan. I don't want to let go of my kittens. I can't. Ayaw. I forcibly fed her and made her drink rehydrating solution. The vomiting stopped. Nagka energy na rin syang tumalon para tumago sa kabilang bakod. Sabi ng doctor, every 2-3 hours daw dapat ipapainom yung rehydrating solution, I make them drink more often than that. Grabe yung relief na nafeel ko nung after ko syang piliting kumain ulet, lumapit sya sa nanay nya at nagdede.
Hopeful parin ako na my kittens will get through all these. That they will recover and be back to their happy and maharot selves.

Just wrapped up my work week. Yebah!
Gusto ko lang sabihin na mabait naman pala ang bago naming TL. Pumayag sya na gamitin ko yung SL ko para sa APE nang wala masyadong hanash. Now I'm not sure if letting my workmates know about it was a good idea. Mukhang lahat sila balak na mag SL.
Know what, I kinda feel sorry for our new TL. Kabago bago lang nya, na encounter nya na kagad ang taong gaya ni Robert. I wonder how the new TL is handling the whole thing. Robert will never run out of complaints, for sure. Napikon nga ako kasi ang bastos nya kanina. Kahit si Wendy yung nakikipag usap sa kanya sumabat na ko. Bastos e. Kala mo boss sya kung makapagsalita. Kahit sa mga TL, kung makaasta sya, kala mo sya yung nagpapasahod. Nakaka hb. Hahaha.
Sa totoo lang, wala naman akong personal na galit kay Robert. Naiiinis lang ako sa mga ginagawa nya. At mejo nabwisit ako nung nagsalita sya like that kay Wendy. She's one of the most hardworking members of the team. Sobrang dedicated nung taong yun, bukod sa magaling pa sya sa ginagawa nya. Walang karapatan ang isang tulad lang ni Robert na pagsalitaan sya ng ganun.
Well ayun lang naman. Di na sumagot si Robert sa sinabi ko. Ewan ko kung nabasa nya. Keber na. Hindi ko sya uurungan. Tae sya. Hahaha.
So, "weekend" ko na naman bukas. Mamimiss ko yung officemate ko na may poging boses at gwapong profile pic, kahit never pa kami nag-usap ever. Haha.
