Just got home and couldnt help but cry because Gigi is no longer here to greet me. This is the first time that I cried since Mom texted me na wala na si Gigi yesterday. I miss my Gigi so much.
Ilang minutes palang ako nakakaupo sa sofa when sis-in-law texted Mom that she needs to be admitted in the hospital daw. The doc said that if her BP will keep on going higher, sis-in-law might need to deliver my nephew prematurely.
Then there's Dad's operation to be scheduled for on Monday. I'll only recieve 1-day pay for the next cut off.
Ok lang. Kaya to. Pero pwede, wag naman sunod sunod, Universe.

Lifted na ang travel ban sa Taiwan. Learned from Mel that their company is considering na wag na ituloy ang self-quarantine nila. I asked the boss if ako rin ba. Said he'll ask the Manager on Monday. Sa totoo lang, I'd love to rest some more. Tinatamad lang talaga akong mag file ng sickness benefit application sa SSS at umaasa parin ako na baka mahabol ko pa yung stats ko para sa shift bid on March.
3rd day of house arrest (self-quarantine). Nag plano ako kung paano ako magda diet. Sinimulan ko na rin mag stationary bike for 30 minutes. Bad trip lang, naisipang mang libre ng kapatid ko. Nung lunch nagpa lechong manok sya. Hindi ako na apektohan bilang hindi naman ako kumakain ng hayop. Kaso nung meryenda, nagpa cassava cake at palabok sya. Oh well, I'll start again tomorrow. Gusto ko pag balik ko sa work, sexy na ko. Please help me, Universe.
Mel, who is also in house arrest, e nagyayayang mag jogging. Ayoko magjogging. Nakakapagod. So sabi ko mag Sagada nalang kami, or Baguio, o kaya magpa tattoo kay Wang Od. Kahit ano basta wag lang kami mag jogging She said yes to Sagada. Syempre nag jo-joke lang naman ako. Goodness, diet na diet kaya ang wallet ko ngayon. Ni hindi nga ako makapuntang SM.
Na surprise ako sa naging expenses namin sa Taiwan. Mga 30% lang ng total budget ko ang nagamit namin. Tatlo na kami non. And we were eating lavishly most of the time (though there were times na nag 7-11 lang kami or kaya nag tinapay because we didn't have much time). I have a few dollars left from our trip, may pera naman talaga ko. Hindi nga lang peso. Sayang rin kasing ipapalit. Bababa na ang value.
E kung tumuloy kaya akong Sagada? After ng hassle na nai cause ko sa boss ko with this trip, hindi ko alam kung mapapayagan pa ko sa matagalang leave next time. Hindi ko rin sure kung may leave credits pa ko. Feeling ko ito nalang ang chance kong makagala ng matagal.
Andami kong time!!! Wooohooo! Sana tuloy ang quarantine. Sana bayaran parin ng SSS ang leaves ko. Sana magkaron ng milagro sa shift bid at makuha ko parin ang gusto kong shift.
Nalinis ko na ang kwarto ko. Sunod kong gagawin e magbasa ng libro. May nabasa akong article na may book daw si Dean Koontz nung 80s pa kung saan accidentally e parang na predict nya ang pagkalat ng virus sa Wuhan ngayon. Wuhan-400 ang tawag nila sa virus dun sa book. Kaka download ko lang. Malapit ko na matapos yung isang chapter. Si Dean Koontz e isa sa mga paboritong authors namin nung college. Nagkalat ang Dean Koontz books na sumicirculate sa section namin noon. Marami kasing Dean Koontz books sa Book Sale at yun lang ang afford namin dati. Funny we can afford more expensive books now... but for some reason, we don't read as much anymore. Hindi ko masasabing dahil busy kami ngayon. We were engineering students. Boy, we were more than busy. Feeling ko nga mas busy pa kami back then kesa ngayon. Siguro sadyang naiiba lang ang priority natin as we grow older.
Siguro kailangan kong mag low-internet diet para maging productive.

Shift bid over. I landed at the 5th rank but somehow managed to get the shift I want. 9AM-6PM. With this I'll be able to attend out Friday meetings sa club on time...
Then I realized, we're back to 1st, 3rd and 5th Friday sched, which means I'll only be able to attend on the 3rd Friday because I'll be in Taiwan during the 1st. I will have to endure waking up early and very little sleep all for 1 night of our meeting. What the eff. Pero ok lang din. Iniisip ko kung paano ko maitatawid ang schedule ko on March. Wala namang ganap nyan. I think I can take the worst sched, but still~
Ang daming opinyon ng mga tao sa social media re nCoV. Others think against racism sa mga Chinese, saying they are humans too and victims of the virus. Others think we are just overreacting. Others defend that by saying that we act this way because we care. Yung iba naman, Pinoy daw muna, Pilipino muna, and all these "be nice to Chinese" sheeesh are all BS daw.
Pag babad ka sa social media and hirap na hanapin kung ano ba yung raw opinyon mo sa mga bagay bagay. Yung hindi na sulsulan lang ng mga posts na nababasa mo.
Ang alam ko lang,
1. We should do our best to protect ourselves and our family. I've long stopped depending on the government for protection because they always lose their backbone everytime the issue involves China.
2. If you feel sorry for Chinese people, go ahead, be sorry. But do not allow your emotion to cloud your logic and start thinking that we should start embracing their virus-laden presence in our country. And UTANG NA LOOB, stop spreading that #notoracism bullshit because this is a time for our people to highten our vigilance. Yung lecheng nag post tungkol sa pamilyang Chinese na nagpaubayang mahuli sa pagsakay sa elevator should've joined them instead. I mean, no hard feelings. I feel sorry that they came from China and they're probably sick, pero takte, wag mo kami hawaan. Lol. HINDI TAMANG NANDITO SILA SA PILIPINAS SAMANTALANG SARILI NILANG BANSA HINDI SILA TINATANGGAP. No to racism your face. Hindi sila dapat nandito.
3. Wag mag panic. That won't help. Do your best. Stay informed.
Ilang linggo na kong nakatambay sa website ng Earthclinic. May contributor dun from Thailand na isang gifted naturopath. The last I heard of him e he had a stroke daw. I wonder what he would've prescribed at a time like this na may epidemya. I searched for the website's archive for his posts regarding SARS and MERS. Now I'm headed to buy the supplements he recommended. Hindi naman talaga ako takot sa nCoV. But I'm not taking chances and let it hit my family. (If you're interested, go to earthclinic.com, type "SARS" on the search box, and click the tab for "Ted's Q&A").

"Mukhang may chemistry kayo nung bago nating member," Andee told me the last time we met. I just laughed because the person she's talking about is my mentee. I was the one who assigned mentors to our new members. To be fair, I assigned it through draw lots. Promise, hindi ako nandaya. Kung ako pumili non, iba siguro pipiliin ko. Lol.
I was watching the vids that I got from our Friday night bonding yesterday. Aliw na aliw ako sa bago kong mentee kasi ang kulit kulit nya. Sa totoo lang, when I got his name sa draw lots, mejo di ko bet. Akala ko kasi snob sya, mayabang, at tipong hindi magiging active sa meeting. E takte, ang kulit kulit pala nitong taong to.
Ang tagal na when I added him sa FB bilang part ng trabaho ko ang mangulit sa mga role takers every meeting, pero ngayon ko lang naisipang i-check ang profile nya. What the efffffff, lawyer to? National defense something something, basta tunog astig. Yung kasama naming makipagkulitan at tumatawa na parang walang bukas e may ganito palang background? Wala lang. Interesting.
Then I started asking a friend na kilatisin kung bading ba to (because you know my inclinations, right?)Tapos ngayon nag wa wonder ako kung single kaya sya. Hahaha.
Kahapon lang sa ibang lalaki ka interesado. Lol.
Pero, come on. I have all the right to be kerengkeng because I'm very much single. Haha.

Gumising akong mejo tinatamad na umalis ng bahay. Ang puso at diwa ko kasi ay nagbabakasyon na sa Taiwan nitong mga nakaraang araw. Pero nagbago ang lahat ng nakita ko ang mga kasama ko sa club. Lakas mang asar at mang bully ng mga taong to. Kaya siguro love ko sila.
In the end, nanalo ko bilang champion sa contest. Hindi ako nagkaron ng time na maenjoy ang victory ko dahil tawang tawa ko sa mga kalokohan ng mga kasama ko. Yung tinawag yung pinakamalakas na contender bilang second place, inassume na nila na ako ang nanalo. Ayoko nga sana lumapit sa stage kasi hindi ko naman narinig na tinawag yung pangalan ko sa sobrang ingay nila. Kinilig lang ako when AD Ces was teasing the audience before announcing the champion saying, "I'm looking at her right now", while looking at me. Wala lang. Ang saya lang.
Winning the area contest means I should be advancing to the division level. This will be happening on Feb 8. I will be in Taiwan then. I knew this from the start and I was okay with it. Nalungkot lang ako kasi Keren from the neighboring club sweetly offered na me-makeupan nya daw ako sa division contest. Tas nalaman ko pa na nag champion pala yung crush ko from other club dun sa area nila sa same category. Makakalaban ko sana sya sa division kung makaka attend lang ako.
Gusto ko makalaban si Crush. Syempre hindi ako magpapatalo. Sana mamove ang contest. I already talked to the 1st runner up regarding this though. But who knows... Universe, baka naman po...
Pero all kababawan aside, I'm happy that I won. Things haven't been smooth in the club lately. Or maybe feeling ko lang. But I think this victory brought smile to our faces, and that more than paid the price.
Next year, lalaban ako ulit. Gusto ko makaabot sa district level at maging national champion.
One of the reasons why I wished to win the contest even before I actually did e para malaman nung everyday crush ko na I'm really good. Tas di man lang nya ni like yung post ko. Hmp.
Syet, ambabaw. Lol.
One of the perks of not being pressured about getting married anymore e I can like whoever I want na.
There's this dude I've noticed since the last time we had a lengthy talk. For someone so young, he's quite matured. And with him, grabe, walang dull moments. Ang sarap nya kasing kausap. Bukod dun, ang ganda rin ng buhok nya, ang haba ng pilikmata, tas ang ganda rin ng kamay nya. He's such a gentleman also and is really generous. When he's not wearing anything formal, tipong everyday casual lang, he kinda looks gwapo and nagiging obvious ang pagiging rich kid nya. On top of that, he's very very smart. I think his only flaw is that, he's just 21 years old. Lol.
I used to like 1 guy at a time lang, pero ngayon paramiran na. And really, why not? For 1, hindi naman nila alam. Lol. 2, hindi ko naman sila papakasalan lahat. Lol ulet.

So, umuwi ako sa bahay from work. Kumain at nakipagchismisan saglit sa kapatid ko, tapos umalis papuntang bangko sa may SM. Hindi pa natutulog, hindi pa naliligo. Hindi na rin ako nag bother ma mag lipstick.
So, past 12 nung lumabas ako ng SM pauwi na sa bahay. May lalaking sumalubong sakin na panay sabi ng "Miss..." akala ko mga tricycle driver na nangungulit na sumakay or kaya goons, so di ko pinansin. Tas lalong lumapit yung lalaki at panay miss ng miss ps rin sakin. Pag tingin ko sa guy p*@! $#/&*?!!! Yung crush ko sa previous company ko! Takte. Anong ginagawa nito sa SJDM, Bulacan, e alam ko taga Fairview to? Sheeesh.
Wala lang. I had all the time in the world para magsuklay man lang at mag lipstick. Takte, jahe. Sighs.
Anyway, ayun lang naman. Hindi na naman kami magkikita ulet non. Yaan mo na.
Naalala ko lang yung line sa Meteor Garden dati... dapat daw ang babae, laging nag-aayos at nagpapaganda dahil hindi nya alam kung kelan nya makikita ang prince charming nya. Oh sya, next time.
PS: Dapat pala nag picture ako. Wala lang. Remembrance.

I was happy ob my way to work last night because I was able to negotiate my way into getting the shift I want: 10AM-7PM.
Now I'm half way to my last night shift (at least for this month), and I can already feel it sucking all the happiness out of me.
Pagod na ko, Universe. T_T
Thankful ako sa trabaho ko. Really, I am. And I know I'll be in big trouble kung mawawala sakin to.
Pero in my heart, dama ko na hindi para sakin ang corporate world.
Anong gagawin ko, Universe? T_T

A guy coworker was sharing stories about his life, where he said, "traumatic error" instead of "traumatic experience". Lol, #ITproblems
Hello, good morning! Almost 4 hours here in the office's sleeping quarters and I'm still wide awake. I need to fix myself by 11 so I can meet my family in Manila by 1pm. Office is in QC.
"Nag-aral ka pa, tas magko-call center ka lang?"
I used to say this to my brother, or anyone from my relatives who were planning to work in call centers. But karma is a bigger bitch, so here I am working in-- oh, guess what-- a call center!
Yes, it's humbling and all, but I never really felt like I'm being punished. If anything, I learned to treat this profession- and the people working here-- with so much respect. Ang dami kayang magagaling dito.
Tapos, natutunan ko rin na being on graveyard shift is not really so bad. Kung hindi ko lang iniisip ang Elite, I'd love to stay in this shift a little longer pa.
Know what, the acct manager talked to us the month before I went to night shift. He told us the account's situation. If the client will decide to take the other company instead of us, well have until July to finish the contract and then we'll disperse to different accounts na. I'm not so sure if same will be true for bilinguals like myself. I dont know if there're enough accounts who are in need of Japanese speakers here. Sa tingin ko, hindi ko parin naman naiisip yun.
I'm just starting to learn about my work here. Sayang naman yung mga natutunan ko. It's been a long while since I really work, and I want to do good.
Then, more than that, I'm also just starting to get to know the people here... pag umalis ako dito, bagong pakikisama na naman.
I really wish that the Heavens will allow all of us to stay longer pa. Sana.

Saturday. I'm yet to sleep. This effin bus is super slow I wonder if I can save time if I'll just get off here and ride a different bus. I already paid in full.
A lot of things.
Work is getting a whole lot challenging. I didn't care so much back then, but now, tinatablan na ko pag nagagalit yung user. I've been feeling low these past couple of days because of this.
On a lighter note, ang babait ng mga kasama ko sa work. Things are so much better because of them.
Then there are things outside work.
Yesterday, I woke up 4:45pm with messages from different people saying the same thing. Something that makes my heart feel so heavy, I don't really know what to do with it.
Naalala ko yung sabi ng late friend ko na si Cris. Minsan daw kailangan mong saktan ang tao para iligtas sya sa sarili nya. If you care for someone and he's running towards a cliff to his own demise, you gotta do what you gotta do. If he's not listening when you told him to stop, then tackle with him, pin him on the ground, break his leg if you must--all to stop him from destroying himself. I don't know if love is always this complicated. I don't know.
Pero ok lang. Kaya nya yan. I know, kaya nya yan.
I booked a place around metro for my family to stay over tbe weekend next week. I bought a reservation for a dinner cruise for all six of us. Sa totoo lang, gusto ko mag-ipon at mag invest. Para samin din naman talaga even yung pag-iipon at pag iinvest part. Pero naalala ko kasi si Tita Be. She tried bringing Lola out as much as she can when Lola was still alive. But Lola was too old to enjoy it, she couldn't even climb into the car. I'm worried that if I wait till I have more than enough money na e too old na ang parents ko to enjoy the things I want them to experience. So, sige. Bahala na.
Gaaarawr! Napaka traffic. Nakakapikon. Ugh.
