What's Up

Hi!

It's been the longest time since my last post. Just wanna let you know guys that I am still breathing. ^^,

I just have a few lines to drop as I'm really busy these days.

1. My sincere condolences to all who lost there loved ones and valued things during the flood brought by the tropical storm, Ondoy in NCR and other areas in Luzon. I wish I was a real superhero so I could have picked each one of those helpless people trapped on top of their roofs.

2. But of course, we don't need super powers if we really wanted to help. Let us feel free to make use of the organizations (Governmental or not). To those who want to help, just send it to my paypal email address I recommend ABS-CBN's Sagip Kapamilya.

3. My apologies to those who have not received their give-away shirts yet especially to TSI, Edz, Shattershards, Ghie and Bogcess. I was contacting my cousin in Marikina because he offered to deliver the shirts to your addresses. But because of bagyong Ondoy, it might be postponed to on or before Oct 15. Wala na kasing akong budget ngayon para sa shipping. The funds I got from the sponsors were not enough because I overlooked to consider the shipping fees. Yeah I know it's my bad, but I just hope you understand. By the way, to Bogcess and Ghie, if you happen to drop by at this address: Club house chateau, Elysee Condo., Doña Soledad Better Living Paranaque city, you may get your packages from Lovely. But if not, I will get someone to deliver your package on or before Oct 15. Thanks.

4. I got hired by a larger call center company compared to my previous one. And they are currently mass hiring. So if you are interested to apply, please lemme know. Please click here for more info.

5. I will catch up with you guys later. Thanks.

Moving On


Sometimes you have to give up the fight and walk away, and move on to something that's more productive.

... and so I'm moving on.

I will miss a lot of people! Thank you for the memories.

Superhero Syndrome

I'm in trouble. I think I have been showing signs or symptoms of a disorder called Superhero Syndrome. That’s what I’ve come to realize one very early Sunday morning while I was taking a break from an exhausting 30-min jog slash brisk walking. How did I come up with such self-diagnosis?

By the way, that's the South Reclamation Project aka Cebu South Coastal Road. That's my favorite place to go for a jog.

Well, I have always hated bullies. I hate them a lot that I even fantasized of abducting them and put each one of them in an empty sack and hang 'em upside-down with flames underneath just a few inches below their heads. *insert evil laugh here* Teka, biro lang yun. Mga bata, wag gayahin sa bahay! Peru sa totoo lang, ayaw na ayaw kong makakita ng may ina-api. Kumukulo ang dugo ko sa mga mayayabang at mapanlait na tao. I guess that's also how every superhero feels towards bullies. So ano kaya magandang Superhero name ko? Hmmm... Super Mon o kaya Super Monding! Kakampi ng mga inaapi! HuhLOLZ!

Perhaps that explains why I never fail to get myself in trouble let's say once in a year. Haha! Wayback in elementary I was a very short kid. I used to be bullied as well. Kaya mula nun, I promised myself I will fight for my rights til the last drop of my blood! Kapag May Katwiran, Ipaglaban Mo! *insert Ipaglalaban Mo Theme Song here*

Aside from that hatred to all the bullies, I have this pact to myself and to my family that I will be their savior, that someday I will help them get off from poverty. That is why even though working on a graveyard shift at a call center is risky, I'm still here, working as hard as I can.


Imagine how hectic my superhero life has been! I've been juggling love, work, revenge, commitment, family and saving the world. Wheow! Beat that! *Hi! I'm a man of steel and you're my magnet!*

Yet no matter how much effort I exert, no matter how hard I work, sometimes, it never seems to be enough. There comes a point in my life that I tell myself, "I can't take this anymore!" I'm tired of being selfless. I'm tired of being the undying source of unconditional love. *Hehe! Tita Cory ikaw ba yan!*

Seriously, I think I need to treat myself nicer this time. That would mean, I will do my best to stay away from trouble. To avoid getting involved with stressful activities. Or simply to avoid stress. Oh wait, stress is inevitable in the real world. That's right. Then, I will just treat myself nicely to atleast cope up with stress. Hmm.. I'm hoping my 3-day vacation leave application gets approved so I can go swimming and just have fun! Forget all the worries. Take all the hatred and grudges away and just wear that innocent smile with all sincerity and sparkling eyes. ^_^

Wheow! It feels good already.

Many of us hold our lives to a standard higher than we have for other people. We need to learn to give ourselves a break. Superheroes only exist in books and movies. (This not Twilight nor New Moon and I am way too brown to be Edward Cullen. LOL.) This is real life and we are humans - but we can still go on to accomplish great things. We just need to love ourselves first.
- Joan Schramm

PS: That half-naked guy in the picture, that's not me. Believe me. I was just too convinced that I look so alike with that person. Or don't you think he looks like Danyl Johnson of X-Factor? To whoever owns that pic, if you happen to visit my blog and you want it removed from this page, just feel free to let me know. ^_^

Have a great week ahead guys! Don't forget to smile. It feels good. =)

DJ AM Died at 36

One of America's most famous disc jockey, Adam Goldstein commonly known as DJ AM, was found dead at his New York City apartment at around 5:20 p.m. on Friday, August 28, 2009.

Goldstein was a member of the rock band Crazy Town, known for their hit "Butterfly". He has also scratched on albums for Papa Roach, Madonna, Will Smith, and Shifty and played concerts with Jay-Z. He was dating singer-actress Mandy Moore. They broke off the relationship in March 2007.

Sources say the cause of death may have been accidental drug overdose. Statements by a New York law enforcement official to the Associated Press indicate that drug paraphernalia was found in the apartment, but no signs of foul play.

Source: Wikipedia

Check out one of his most recent videos entitled (I'm Blessed, I'm Alive - awww... How ironic!) inwhich he confessed that he was a recovering drug addict. He also discussed how he survived the September 19, 2008 plane crash. My condolences to his family.



May his life story would serve as a lesson to all of us. "Drug addicts don't grow old. They die young."

Talent Shout Business Consultancy

Have you heard of BPO or Business Process Outsourcing?

According to SourcingMag.com, it is the process of hiring another company to handle business activities for your company. One best example is the call center industry here in the Philippines. Basically, call centers are companies that caters customer support for large companies via phone, chat or email. Let's say for example, Sayks is a call center that handles customer service or customer support for different companies like Kodak or Nokia. In other words, when a Kodak customer calls in to complain or ask technical assistance for the product that he or she bought from Kodak, Sayks people are the ones handling the call.

Disclaimer: I'm just using that as an example, I'm not saying it is a fact that either Kodak or Nokia is connected in any way with Sayks.

Well, I'm not gonna talk any further about Sayks, Kodak or Nokia in this post, this is more about Talent Shout Business Consultancy.

What is Talent Shout Business Consultancy?



Talent Shout Business Consultancy is a Philippine-based BPO company that offers business development solutions. It was established in 2007 and caters to both SMEs and large corporations. Although relatively young in the industry, it has managed to secure its own niche in the market by offering products and services at a relatively low price.

The 4th quarter of 2008 saw the expansion of Talent Shout from a provider of HR services to a small time business process outsourcing unit. It has ventured into providing writing and blogging services, online marketing, document management and virtual office provider. (Hmmm.. I wonder if I can get a job at Talent Shout.)

Source : Talent Shout website

Talent Shout was founded by Rhonadale Florentino, a Clinical Psychologist with over eight years of experience in the different areas of HR and Marketing. She graduated Magna cum Laude from the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (University of the City of Manila) with a degree in BS Psychology. She also took her MA Clinical Psychology in the same institution. She had worked with various companies from such industries as automotive, manufacturing, IT, media, and BPO. She has done several writing and SEO projects for various international clients under oDesk such as Dynamic Producer, Essential Feel Goods, and Click 4 Credit. Aside from managing Talent Shout, she also takes time to do some blogging.

Hi CF Rhona, this is my entry to the contest you are holding. ^_^ I hope tama tong ginagawa ko. Lemme know if there are errors. And I apologize foe the grammar lapses. Feel free to correct my errors. Thanks.

Dear reader, if you are a blogger, especially if you are also Rhona's blogger friend, feel free to join the contest. To learn more about it, please click here. Or you can just support me by clicking on that Talent Shout image (above) twice every day. ^^

X-Factor's Best Ever First Audition


Watch out for my "kuya" Danyl Johnson! A 27-year old grade school teacher is now being labeled as "the next Susan Boyle."

How good was Danyl? Well, he managed to accomplish the unthinkable: Danyl not only made Simon Cowell smile, but he inspired Simon to give him a standing ovation...AND Simon even declared Danyl's audition (of the Joe Cocker version of "With A Little Help From My Friends") "the single best first audition I have ever heard." - Yahoo Music Blog



You may also watch the video on Youtube through this link.
Or read the full article at Yahoo Music.

Note: For foreign readers, kuya means brother. Haha! Sabi kasi ng mom ko medyo hawig kami. LOL

Mon's Top 4 List of Things From Your 20's or Teens That You'll Regret When You're 40



Note: You must have read an article similar to this one from coedmagazine.com or from a forwarded e-mail. But I tell you, although we may have the same message, this one is my own version. That banner above by the way, is from Coedmagazine.com. ^_^
I got inspired to create this post when I saw a long-lost friend whom I believe has gone astray. He's now got 2 piercings on both ears and a piercing on the nose. He also has tattoos all over his nape down to the lower back.



These days, what people may only seem to care is how to live life to the fullest in whatever manner they desire. Trying different things may sound fun and harmless. True enough, having fun while you're young is good. But there are things that's being done by a lot of young people nowadays which I personally believe that there will come a time that they will regret they did such things.

1. Body Piercings

- Nowadays, a great number of teenagers and young adults have a body piercing. These can range anywhere from your belly button to your tongue. Personally, I don't understand why some people think having tunnel-sized ear holes/piercing is cool. By the way, I am giving an exception to those people who come from ethnic groups where body piercing is considered a tradition and/or an art. But if you are just a city dude and you are not from any ethnic group, then it may be something else. KSP-ness that is.

Bad Effects: First impressions are important to many people. In other words, you can't blame a sales clerk who gives you a suspicious look thinking that you are dangerous - pick-pocket, shoplifter or worse a hold-upper. Also, most employers may have a negative opinion about body piercings. It can be your major downfall from getting your desired job. Some employers and/or interviewers may think the applicant has no respect for his body. As a matter of fact, some company may have a policy against piercing. There have been controversies over facial piercing in fast food restaurants. Also, though it may sound unfair to you, some employers are biased about such things as piercing. If you are taking an interview and you have a visible piercing the interviewer may feel intimidated or think negatively toward you. So if you don't want to have such image for the rest of your life, better yet, stay away from these stuff.

2. Sex Video or Picture Scandals Online

- Another thing that has become so trendy nowadays are self-made or home-made videos of lovers making love passionately, wildly or whatever. In other words, sex scandals! My take on this is: Just because famous celebrities like celebrity doctor Hayden Kho and sexy actress Katrina Halili became more popular because of their very controversial videos, it doesn't mean you should go ahead make your own. Hayden should have put a disclaimer on his videos that goes like: "Kids don't follow this at home. Only done by professionals."

Bad Effects: Sooner or later, those pictures or videos are going to come back to haunt you. And when they do, it will start a sh!tstorm you can’t even imagine. And pretty soon that trip to Boracay with a hot chcik when you were 23 will turn into the reason you are fired from your job or perhaps will prevent you from getting promotions. Worst-case scenario, your beloved wife will file a divorce, or annulment in our country, and/or you will be estranged from your children. Seriously. Think about it.

3. Tattoos
- These days, having a tattoo is practically like having a mole - almost everybody’s got one. Rock stars, sports figures, fashion models, and movie stars flaunt them. Many teenagers have followed suit, proudly displaying tattoos on their shoulders, hands, waists, and ankles. The only difference is, having a mole isn’t going to make you bang your head against the wall for stupidity as soon as you’re out of your “Juvenile Delinquent phase.” I'm pretty sure there will be a point in your life that would make you regret why you did ever let those needles and inks touch your flawless white skin. Oh and ladies, just so you know, one day that lower back tattoo you all seem to have is going to be known as the “old lady tattoo.” Not so sexy, is it?

4. Smoking
- I have always disliked smokers. I have been explicit about that. Okay. Why, bakit, ngano? Because I really do think they are selfish. Selfish because we know for a fact that smoking gives pleasure or at least that's what I heard from them. Self-pleasure that is. But come to think of it. That pleasure only lasts barely an hour but the harm that it would cause not only to you but most especially to your loved ones is longer lasting.
Lemme revise what I said as I don't wanna hurt the ego/feelings of some readers / friends who smoke. Let's just say, I condemn the sin but not the sinner. Smoking might cause immediate death! Yes, you've read it right! It can kill you right there and then. You don't believe me, watch this:




Note: This post is my own version of CoedMagazine.com's Top 10 Things From Your 20’s That You’ll Regret When You’re 40. My remaining 6 items are still being written. To Ms. Winkie, I will have that bag tag posted within this week. :)

Callboys, Spongebob Briefs/Boxers and Blue Whales

Naisipan kong ilagay dito ang screenshots ng mga keywords na ginamit ng mga napadpad sa blog ko. Natatawa ako habang binabasa ko yung ibang keywords. Pakibasa po at sana mapangiti ko din kayo. ^_^

Sa mga naghahanap ng mga callboys sorry peru hindi po ako totoong callboy. Haha! Malamang dito kayo napadpad sa pinaka-una kong public blog post: I Am a Callboy. Sa mga first-timers sa blog ko, kung meron man, hayaan nyo po akong magpaliwanag sa presinto. Hindi ako bayaran. Hindi ako lalaking pokpok. Ako po ay isang call center boy/agent. Naging isang common jargon na po sa call center industry na gamitin ang mga terminong call boys at call girls. Kaya chill lang kayo. Wag ma-excite yung mga naghahanap at wag tumaas ang kilay yung mga konserbatibo. :)



Para naman sa nagtatanong kung mahal ba sya ng gf nya, aba'y sorry di ko alam. Di ko naman kilala gf mo at wag mo na pag-isipang ipakilala sya sa'kin dahil malamang ako na mamahalin nun. yay! biro lang. haha. may magcocomment na naman. baka sabihin pelingero ako. LOL

"You believe God, you believe brain." haha. Teka, bad na'ko pinagtawanan ko search keywords mo. Sorry. ayusin mo kasi. Dapat ganto yun, "If you don't believe that God exists just because we can't see him, then might as well don't believe that you have a brain." Opps. Sorry na naman sa mga ateyistang napadpad. Basta paki-basa na lang tong entry na to "Do You Believe That God Exist?"
"i'm sorry i'm lied" => ano daw? parang medyo green pagkaka-intindi ko dito ah. haha. ayusin mo kasi keywords mo. Sige again, take 2:

"poem am sorry i lied" => wow medyo okay na tu ah. at kelangan may nakalagay talagang poem. Specific ka na ngayon ah! O sige na nga. eto yata hinahanap mo eh: "I'm Sorry, I Lied"
"Spongebob briefs" / "Spongebob boxers" / "Spongebob.com"
==> haha.. parang pinopromote ko na ng husto si Spongebob ah. Sana man lang bigyan ako kahit konti ng Nickoledeon. Ang totoo iisa lang yung Spongebob boxers / briefs ko. At dito paki-basa ang istorya nyan. Spongebob Boxers / Briefs

By the way please click on the Blue Whale T-shirt (in the sidebar) to vote again. Vote counts were reset back to zero on Aug 10. for the final 10. If you voted previously, it is easier this time around. You just need to sign in and vote. We need your support dear reader and friends. Thank you very much.

Life Gives Rewards

Even if I do things the right way, some would still be unhappy and will not appreciate what I say and do, and there would always be people who would try to bring me down. This is not a perfect world and this is not a perfect life. Life is almost always unfair. But LIFE gives reward to those who dare to live it right. I'm waiting for mine. Haha.

“People with a scarcity mentality tend to see everything in terms of win-lose. There is only so much; and if someone else has it, that means there will be less for me. The more principle-centered we become, the more we develop an abundance mentality, the more we are genuinely happy for the successes, well-being, achievements, recognition, and good fortune of other people. We believe their success adds to...rather than detracts from...our lives.” – Stephen R. Covey

A Soltero’s Random Realizations

1. Alone but not lonely. Now that I am in a new team, there are times that I eat alone during my one-hour lunch break. It might sound sad but I take it the positive way. During my lunch break, I can go to my favorite restaurant located on the ground floor of the same building and there I can surf the internet via Wifi and check my Yahoo emails and manage my blog which I can’t do inside the office. There’s always a bright side in everything.

Rhona

I have known Rhona Florentino aka Kikayness for just a couple of months here in the so-called blogosphere. I like her bubbly and simple personality that's why we instantly clicked as Close Friends (CF) here in this virtual world. These are the following things I've learned about her:

1. She's a self-confessed frustrated Journalist. Rhona once wrote in her blog to explain how she got her blog name:
"Isa akong frustrated journalist na sa mga sandaling ito ay finu-fulfill ang kanyang pangarap na maging writer. At sa la mesa ng isang writer, hinde mawawala ang stains ng coffee at mga nagkalat na tinta lalo na kung hinde naman sya OC sa kanyang table. Ganoon ako kaya sya naging Coffee Stains and Inks." Like you Rhona, I used to dream to become a journalist or a news anchor too. Peru eto ako, nasa call center. Kaya okay lang yan Rhona. Besides, we're still young. May panahon pa! Huh LOLs!

2. And you might ask why she uses "Kikayness" as her nickname. Here she goes again:
"Ngayon, kung tatanungin mo naman bakit kikayness. Frustration ko po kasi ang magmalandi nyahahaha. Hinde kasi ako kikay. Gusto ko nang isang handle na hinde halatang ako (halatang may pinagtataguan hehehehe) kaya yan ang pinili ko. Una kong ginamit yan sa GTM hanggang sa nakasanayan ko na. Ngayon, usually isinasama ko yung tunay kong nickname para hinde malito mga tao."

3. She is highly-educated yet she stays grounded. She studied Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Magaganda Maynila. I have also learned that she finished her Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology at the same school.

4. Rhona's ultimate crush is Lio Loco este Jensen Ackles of Supernatural. To see the photo of Jensen, click here! Ay mali, here pala. LOL. Rhona has a very colorful "lablayp" as she has fallen in and out of love a lot of times already. Hence, if I were to compare Rhona to a flower, I'd say she's a wildflower. Bakit? Kase, wala lang! LOL

5. Aside from the fact that my CF is beautiful, Rhona is maparaan, madiskarte and workaholic. She is a blogger, a writer, managing director , an online businesswoman, an award-winning actress, a versatile singer and she is in need of part-time writers. If you are interested, send her an email at talent.shout1@gmail.com.

This is my entry to Rhona's Pa-contest. Blogger friends and visitors, please support me by leaving many comments. Hehe. Please drop some comments as much as you can! Nyahah!

Rhona's Pa-contest wouldn't be possible without the support of her sponsors:
- Joyce of http://joyceish.com/
- Vhincent of http://www.chizmosalounge.com/
- Nika Catbagan of http://www.bloggingpinay.com/
- Jerick Mack of http://www.rickspot.com/

Best Web Hosting Provider

More and more bloggers have decided to buy and get their own personal domain name. At first I thought, “well if it's just your personal blog you don't need your own domain. Private domains are good for commercial sites.” But as I've become more exposed to the web, I learned that there are advantages from getting your own personal domain name. Here goes the list of positive effects of having your own personal domain name:

1. Boosts up website traffic. You have your own trademark and you become more memorable. It is easier for your visitors to type in your URL because it becomes shorter.

2. Better search engine ranking. When it comes to search engine ranking the keywords in the homepage (index) of a domain rank higher than any other pages.

3. More theme or template options. On a sub-domain you are limited when it comes to theme selection and making template changes. In fact, on some blogging platforms bloggers cannot access their underlying template files and make any changes at all.

4. New E-mail accounts. Most personal domain name comes with free e-mail accounts.

5. A lot more. Feel free to name one.

Web Hosting Geeks offers a directory of today's best web hosting providers of the year! Cheap professional web hosting service plans starting from $3.95; all webhosting plans include at least one free domain name registration and 30 day money back guarantee.

They also offer FREE domain name registration included when you purchase hosting from one of their web hosting partner providers. Some of our web hosting providers offer up to 5 free domain names or a free domain name forever when you signup for a web hosting service.

For more information, visit their website by click on this link here: Web hosting

Hmm.. I wonder when will I be able to get my own domain name. *wink

Wishful Thinking



I wanna get to know you,
Get to see more than eyes can do.
Be drowned by your stares and smiles,
Get close to you despite the miles.
***

I know I suck at poetry. I don't have the talent. I can't even add another stanza to that "poem" above. Maybe I can but it will take another one whole week to do that. Or maybe just an hour if I get to see her smile again. Wanna know who she is? Scroll-down to the bottom.

PS:
Susunod na ang entry ko for Rhona's Pa-contest! Stay tuned! hehe

By the way, I wanna take this chance to say thank you to Jason, Ax, Eli, Dencios, Rhona at iba pang pabalik-balik sa blog ko para umabot ng 100+ yung comments ng LLM Entry ko sa pa-contest ni Otep. LOL

Just another Random Thought

Haha. Araw-araw may nagagawi sa blog ko nanaghahanap ng callboy! LOL

Eto nga pala yung inspirasyon ko kaya nagawa ko ang napaka-ikling tula sa itaas. :)
