MY MIND BLABBING!!

Posted by shierylssi at 7:38 AM 0 comments

It’s been a while since my last movie review. Just in time for the holidays, I have been planning to stimulate my mind through watching meaningful movies and maybe some tragic love story in between. Yes, call me emo or very melodramatic but I guess it goes well with the chilly and no-one-around-to-hug season. Anyway, to make this very lengthy introduction a little lengthy, I decided to download some movies online. I downloaded One Day, P.S. I Love You, Lost in Translation, Great Expectations and Never Let Me Go. Okay, now here is the part where I explain why I downloaded them. I have always been curious about One Day and Never Let Me Go because of their bestselling books, while P.S. I Love You and Lost in Translation came in mind when I stumbled upon them on Youtube and lastly, Great Expectations has great memories. I have always loved the movie ever since high school. I want to watch all over again. Enough said, I am very much into movies now. It makes my brain steady for a few minutes after doing some talking on Skype. Recently, my mind’s going hay wired that I cannot simply shut it out especially if I am in deep thoughts. It speaking in English and it makes me want to blurt it out but of course I can’t or I might look foolish talking to myself. I am so into talking in English lately that even my mind speaks and talks and even answers on its own. Hahahaha. I am not crazy or anything but I probably my mind is so active that I sometimes need to talk it out or write it in my blog-which I am doing right now. hehehehe.

I’d probably blame this situation I am to a person who is equally very entertaining and interesting to talk to. He is a typical guy but he loves to talk about anything and my golly, he has lots of vocabulary words than I am. He is very stimulating and very deep like a massage to an aching body. Hahahaha, bad metaphor!! I like it when he speaks his mind and talks about anything and then making it into something interesting. I can talk to him probably the whole day and all night without getting bored. (Of course, I haven’t tried this one yet!) He is very vocal and very straightforward in his thoughts. I like it but sometimes I get irritated when he talks about how poor our country is. Aarrrggggh! Aside from that, no other issues though. You might be thinking I am smitten. Yes, probably I am but never in my wildest dream that it will become a reality. Admit it gals-there is only two types of person we tend to fall for-the funny guy and the smart guy and the other things just follows. Whatever situation I am in right now, I just hope it will make me happy in the long run. Sometimes, I don’t care if I am broke or sad or ugly as long as I can speak my mind. I hope he will not get tired talking to me or me getting tired of him. I am excited to go home today. Hahahaha…What can I say? I think it is already an addiction.

MISSING SINGAPURA

Posted by shierylssi at 8:20 AM 0 comments
It's almost a month since I've been to Singapore. I am missing every single moment I am there. I super enjoyed my trip that I even sent a message to a friend that "I want to live here..."hehehe...I know it's just a spur of a moment message but I am missing Singapore now. Hmmm..Now, I am thinking of things that I miss the most. One, I miss riding MRT in Singapore because there is no MRT in Davao...wahahaha..soo simple!! I also miss walking and the very humid weather of Singapore..Nah, it's my other self that is saying this-I'm just kidding. It's super hot in Singapore and that is one thing I hate the most..hehehe. I miss Hookien Mee( Fried Prawn Noodles), Bak Kut Teh( now, I remember I bought some Bak Kut Teh mix but I forgot where I placed it.*sad face*) and Food Republic in Wisma Astria and Vivo City. I am imagining the food right now.hehehe.

I miss the crazy-fast-paced-snob-robot-like-fashionable environment of Singapore. I miss the smell of curry and other spices in different places in Singapore. I definitely going back and please watch out for my future blog post on my quirkyalone trip. I am loving Singapura!!!

LOVING 28!!

Posted by shierylssi at 8:54 AM 0 comments
This year will probably be the most adventure year of me yet. For one, I am determined to get my goals and I am slowly realizing them. Last November 07, 2011, I made the most daring and risky decision to travel alone on my birthday. Yes, you are probably thinking-I am crazy but I don't really care at all. It actually started when I scheduled my leave on my birthday. I decided to spend on something remarkable.

I decided to book a trip to Singapore. I am a bit excited when I did it but also afraid of what I am going to experience there. So, the date and the trip was set. Only few chosen friends know where I am going on my birthday. I know my parents were a bit scared but they had a feeling too that I am going to be okay. I felt so independent and mature that time. I had to do it for the reason that I want to feel what it's like to be alone in a very highly urbanized country. I am actually hitting many birds that time. I wanted to travel alone, check. I wanted to travel abroad, check. I want to feel what Singapore life is, check and I want to feel independence, check.

Now I realize that if you don't do it then you can't really say how difficult or easy it is. You should experience it. I felt so alive and recharge after doing it. I am sure that I can take on the world and I can do things unimaginable. As of this moment, I am still in awe with myself. I can't even believe that I actually did that.hehehe. Some people I know told me that I am so gutsy, some even said that I am so crazy and some people said that they envy me so much. Whatever they think about what I did, I can say to them that I am proud of what I did...hhmmmm...a good friend of mine asked me.."so now that you are had tried traveling alone, where will you go next time?"...Actually, I have no idea yet but I am thinking of another Asian country..hehehe..

FASCINATION WITH ASIAN

Posted by shierylssi at 8:27 AM 0 comments
Admittedly, I am fascinated with anything Korean..I thought it would be the end of it but I guess not. I am not only fascinated with anything Korean now but also Japanese..waaaahhh. It started when I was teaching English to Japanese and I am so fascinated how very dedicated they are with their work. so workaholic and social life. Okay, that's not fascinating but very interesting.hehehe

I am fascinated with the Japanese language. Now, I want to study Japanese and maybe study in Japan on a scholarship...waaaaahhhh!!!Asianovela fever kaayo!!!

I keeping my fingers crossed and hoping to visit these places soon..Konichiwa Japan and Anyyeong Korea!!!^__^

MY HEAVEN FOR RETAIL HELL

Posted by shierylssi at 3:52 AM 0 comments

This is one hilarious book. It took me almost two months to finish because for the simple reason that-I don't want to finish it yet. Good thing, I'm through with this book(because I am reading a new book-Woman, Work and Savior Faire by Mireille Guillano) But I'll talk about it next time.

I wasn't supposed to buy this book. I saw this book in my favorite affordable bookstore, Booksale but I ignored it. I remembered the title well and I saw that the cover is so intriguing but then again-I left it. Next thing I know, I am at the Abreeza scouring the books at Fully Booked. I must admit the books are so varied and appealing that you will be like a kid in a candy store. I love them all but...a big BUT..they are so expensive. I can't blame them. They have the widest selection of books. I was busy looking around when, lo and behold...RETAIL HELL by Freeman Hall.

I was shocked to know that it cost around PHP600. My jaw dropped and while I was reading it-I had an instant LOL mood on the book.(Of course, not really loud or they might think I am crazy.hahaha.) You know what I did? I immediately rushed to Booksale and bought the same book for only PHP75. Now, that's LOL.

I wasn't disappointed at all. Maybe if I bought the book at PHP600-I would feel still the same. The story is about a homo guy who works in a famous retail store. His adventure with the customers where hilarious and even his comments are very LOL. This book is a good stress reliever. You can also check out the Retail Hell site if you want to know more about the author.

I might share this to one of my gay friends. I just hope they can relate to the sales thing..
Anyway, that's it for now. I will blog soon about the new book I am reading. Ciao pips!!!

ON THE ROAD

Posted by shierylssi at 5:28 AM 0 comments

A journey to a place unknown and new to me. I am going alone. I am a bit excited but also a bit scared. I pray that everything will be okay. I am trying my best to be strong for my dreams to be realized. I am so dependent in my family and would love to try to be independent for a few days. I hope I can handle the long distance and the chance of a wonderful experience ahead of me...AJA!!!

BRAVING THE ONLINE

Posted by shierylssi at 8:42 AM 0 comments
I am recently adjusting my time at night for jobs that entail online focus and not wandering around Facebook. I had problems with my teeny weeny net book in Skype but I managed to get by with a little panic and craziness in between. So much for that introduction. I am teaching online and I guess I need a handful of Asians to complete my Asianovela cast.

I have Chinese students whom I teach IELTS-which by the way, I don't even have experience in. Yes, that's what I call gutsy. It sounds interesting and I am very eager to learn but my experience says otherwise. haist! I actually shows in the manner I speak or talk to them. My first class today gave me chills not because of fear but because of frustration. She commented that she can't adapt to me. What? Adapting is not the right word girl. You probably mean you can't understand me. hahaha. I get it now, but she told my trainer otherwise. She told my trainer that I didn't help her and there is long silence between us. WTH? Anyway, I am not giving up on these Chinese kids. Wait 'till I am better and I'll teach you what IELTS is all about. I guess I need to practice more and be confident next time. Whatever!(good thing my trainer is soo patient and understanding.)

I also have a Japanese student with his mom who regularly talks to me online. Of course they paid me. I won't go talking about blah blah blah without earning something. One thing I like about the class is that it is conversational in nature. We can talk anything we want and for as long as 1 hour. The Chinese class pays very well but I am loving the Japanese set up. No pressure, just plain talk and with sense. I don't know how long this will last but I am pretty sure that I'm in as long as it wants my professional skills.(ehem!) Until now, I can't still get over the Chinese kid I taught a while ago. I pity her because she didn't like me but I felt sorry for myself too for not making the mark. 'Till next online adventure sonsaengnim(korean for teacher)!!!Aja fighting!Ciao!!!

WHAT WENT WRONG?

Posted by shierylssi at 6:39 AM 0 comments
It's been months since we talked but what went wrong? I just felt that you changed a lot and I cannot understand your airhead attitude. I am a bit irritated but I am patient. I can keep up with it but sometimes, it pays to blog it than keep it to myself.aaarrrggghh.hehehe.

I can see that your doing fine and you seemed happy from where you've been. I am just here to listen but please..enough with the superficial talks. It gives me creeps and I can sometimes feel that your just pretending to be okay.I just need a decent talk with you and I want it just like before. I know angels can soar but they also fall. Don't make me feel like I look like a loser with all your achievements. One advice too...don't call me if you just want to brag because I might walk out on you.

BOOKS AND MAGAZINES

Posted by shierylssi at 6:23 AM 0 comments

I discovered Booksale, the perfect store in the city that sold books that are cheaper than the ones in the malls. I bought Retail Hell for only P40( retailed at P600 in Fully Booked) and Chasing Harry Winston for only P60 (retailed at P400 in National Bookstore). Nice deal isn't it?

Not only am I addicted to books but any reading materials like magazines and even newspapers. When I have time, I like to read them from the beginning to end. I also like grabbing magazines in that store. I particularly like InStyle, Lucky, Budget Travel and Conde Nast Travel. Super deal on international books and magazines. I am looking forward to my next visit to Booksale.




The straight library knocks the analogue.

BIG SAVINGS THROUGH STRAIGHT TALK

Posted by shierylssi at 7:05 AM 0 comments

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I recently talked with a friend and he is complaining about his cell phone bill. He is always paying for his cell phone bill but he says it doesn’t deliver the quality of calls he expects when he calls overseas. I shared with him the good news about Straight Talk and the idea that I feel richer with Straight Talk because I cut my cell phone bill in half. He doesn’t have to be crazy on the contract because he can get everything he needs with Straight Talk. I get to go to buy other stuff with the savings I get from my cell phone bill. He was shocked to learn that there are no contracts, no surprise bills and even credit checks. I can finally saw in his eyes that he is excited with the new discovery.

In order to convince make him more excited, I shared with him that Straight Talk also only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung. The “All You Need Plan” can meet even the heaviest phone user and for a fee of $45. My friend was ecstatic when he learned that with $45, he can have unlimited calls, text, picture messaging and web.

I am so happy to know that he is now switching to new cell phone service provider. I hope everyone who has complains like my friend should switch to Straight Talk because it has everything you need. He can call a friend overseas without him complaining about choppy lines. Now, I am excited to pay my cell phone bill and get big savings on my cell phone bill. I am eyeing a beautiful dress on the boutique downtown which my mom thinks suits me well but I guess; mom knows best.

UNLIMITED PHONE PLAN

Posted by shierylssi at 7:01 AM 0 comments

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have always been crazy about anything unlimited. Unlimited rice and drinks when dining out, unlimited texting to other networks, unlimited calls in my cell phone, unlimited time in surfing the internet and also unlimited fun on everything. I have always been searching for the best unlimited plan until I stumble on a Real NET10 customer video in YouTube. Sharon explained that NET10 unlimited is a great deal with the nation widest coverage. I was more excited when I learned that it offers unlimited talk, text and data for only $50 a month.

It’s the best offer I heard online. And there’s more- there are no contracts, no surprise bills, and no credit checks. I also like their phones that are only from trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung. I visited their site and it made convinced me more that it would help me in my future business or everyday use. I can get big savings and can save me more time in taking care of other tasks.

 

The Cute NET10 commercial did really convinced me in many ways but if you aren’t convince yet with what I am saying and Sharon’s NET10 testimonial, you can also check out their Twitter account and Facebook account for more details on the plan. Well, I’d better check out some cell phones now to get the best plan with the best phone I need.

COFFEE UPDATE

Posted by shierylssi at 6:43 AM 0 comments
Just in case you might be wondering what happened to my fascination with coffee, well....it turned out good. Not really excellent or superb but just good. I would like to reason out on that and I blame it on my early morning walk and early wake up call. I hate mornings but I love coffee..hehehe..So, to make it work I tried to wake up and I did have my fill of the much coveted McDo coffee.

Though it sounds crazy but I like their coffee but with two creamer and three small packets of sugar, in short like a Nescafe 3 in 1. I know you may think that I should have bought Nescafe instead-but it taste different...maybe because of the Arabica blend that they boast of. Hmmm..I can still imagine it's aroma and creamy taste. Anyway, it costs P25(but mine's free) for an 8oz cup and very good to wake up your sleepy nerves. hehehe. Well, it's nothing to boast of but I usually try food to see if they taste good and this made me realize that it's not bad like the Dunkin Donuts coffee(OOpppss!!!). So far, I can now change my usual hot choco into coffee every time I eat breakfast at McDonalds.(just don't ran out of creamer and sugar or else end up restless). Ciao Pips!!!

COFFEE FREAK

Posted by shierylssi at 5:32 AM 0 comments
A certified coffee freak-one word that would describe me when it comes to my relationship with coffee. I have this certain attachment with coffee. One reason it keeps me awake during sleepy hours. I don't really care if it is just Nescafe 3 in 1 or gourmet coffee as long as it keeps me awake. Another is that it really satisfies my sweet tooth especially with coffee blended drinks. I love the different tastes it brings to my mouth.

I recently heard that Mcdonald's will offer free coffee from August 8 to 12. My eyes beamed with excitement but the bad news is it's only available at 4am-10am...Haist, what am I gonna do? I only have tomorrow to avail the promo. I have to get that coffee or else...hmmmm...I will pay for the coffee next time I go to Mcdo and maybe...end up frustrated?(well so much for excuses). I guess I'll just blame myself for not trying the coffee tomorrow and I should associate it with laziness. It's difficult to wake up on a rainy cold morning and just the word of that makes me want to cuddle back in bed. huhuhu. By the way, I only have two coupons in bag right now. I already gave the rest of the coupons away and hoping that person I gave it to will also wake up early tomorrow.Hope my alarm clock works tomorrow or should I say I hope I will wake up to the alarm clock tomorrow...hehehe..Ciao pips and 'till next coffee adventure.

STEPS BY TORN

Posted by shierylssi at 6:24 AM 0 comments
Taking steps. like a child learning to walk
Little by little
Making steps to reach you

One, two, three
My knees felt weak
What should I do?

Little by little
I began to wither
I should take a breather

So quiet, so light
Making little steps
Four, five, six

NEW(EXPERIMENTED) MORNING DRINK

Posted by shierylssi at 5:59 AM 0 comments

I didn't ate breakfast this morning but made myself my usual morning drink, Energen. I saw the Nescafe brown n' creamy and decided to mix it with Energen. Boy, it was really YUMMY...hehehe. It looks like my morning drink will be a little bit expensive than before. I suggest though that if you try it, put half of the Energen and Nescafe then mix...set aside the remaining half for tomorrow's use...hehehe..Try it guys, it will wake you up because of the coffee and make you full because of the cereal...YUMMY...

RED HALLOWEEN

Posted by shierylssi at 5:32 AM 4 comments

It's my first entry for RED HOT MONDAYS but I am looking forward for more. My entry for this week is missing the kids in the office and being a kid again.

When Mr. Quimbo was our CEO, we had to celebrate Halloween with kids and be like a kid again. We had our own Halloween costumes to match the kids in the office doing their rounds for trick or treat. The office looked gloomy and very bright red.


This is me clowning around with a corpse(though not a real corpse). I had a fiery red headdress to match the office theme.

Cute Lyka receiving her loot bag of candies and goodies.


Ohh, and there's Elmo...all dolled up and excited to receive his loot bag.




By the way, that's me trying to eat the inedible mushroom. The place looks like Super Mario country with red mushrooms everywhere. The kids surely enjoyed the event as much as I did.

It was one red and scary Halloween after all...'till next Red Hot Mondays...ciao!

JAPANESE FILM FESTIVAL

Posted by shierylssi at 6:01 AM 1 comments

It would be a very rare opportunity to watch movies from other country but knowing that it's a Japanese film, I got excited. I have always been fascinated with Japanese culture-their food, music, fashion and even movies. My excitement stopped upon learning that I have a seminar to attend this Saturday and I will meet up with friends for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2. I also learned that the movie, Departures won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 81st Oscars in 2009. It also captured the Japanese moviegoers and made its earnings to almost $61 million.



I am so confused right now and the best way to watch this is on Sunday. I'll probably convince my parents to accompany me. It's okay not to watch Departures than not to watch at all. hehehe...Hope you can drop by Gaisano Grand Citimall Davao on the following dates and time:

22 July 2011
4:00pm Your Friend
6:30pm Departures
23 July 2011
11:00am One Million Yen Girl
1:30pm The Chef of South Polar
4:00pm The Summit: A Chronicle of Stones
7:00pm Climber’s High
24 July 2011
11:00am Yunagi City, Sakura Country
1:30pm Summer Days with Coo
4:30pm Feel the Wind
7:15pm Villon’s Wife
See you there and hope you'll enjoy the movie. I am planning to make a review from it so watch out for it guys. Ciao!

TRAVEL TO BOND

Posted by shierylssi at 5:41 AM 9 comments
I have always wanted to travel with my family and it happened last September 2009. Our first time in Cebu and I am so excited with the idea that we are going together to relax and enjoy Cebu.


This is my parents before boarding the plane. It's my mother's first time to ride a plane but I bet she's very excited because of the excitement on her face.



Went to Semala, Cebu to visit the Virgin Mary Shrine. Here with relatives from Carcar, Cebu who accompanied us on our trip. I already miss them so much.



My parents and I in Ayala Cebu. We love Ayala so much and we want to come back again and enjoy their chain of al fresco restaurants.





My parents in two of Cebu's famous landmarks, the Cebu Provincial Capitol and Magellan's Cross. I just hope my parents had a great time during that trip and felt relaxed after that. I would love to go back to Cebu with my parents again but maybe with a Bohol trip to top that.

One can learn so much with every places he/she visits. For me, I learned so much and also enjoyed some quality time with my parents.

(Note: Don't mind the date below the picture....I didn't set the camera date before the trip)

I THOUGHT I'M A WATER BUT TURNED OUT TO BE....AIR

Posted by shierylssi at 7:33 AM 0 comments


You Are an Air Charmer



You charm with intelligence, class, and wit. You fascinate people.

You are eloquent and an excellent conversationalist. You really shine when you're with a few other people.



You are a risk taker. You are a person of great courage and bravery.

You are interested in many subjects, and your interest isn't superficial. You dig deep.


EXPECTING CHANGE

Posted by shierylssi at 5:26 AM 0 comments
Some people resist change while other pray for change. I don't usually resist change but I just air out my views on a certain situation. I adapt well easily but I sometimes pray for change. At this very moment, I am expecting change. I am expecting it for myself and not for everyone. I just need a new air to breathe with. A new perspective and also a new experience.

One will always have a situation in their life where they will take risk or sacrifice. I am not fearless nor coward but I can always do the things unexpectedly. That is what I am feeling now. I want to be free but be sure of one's decision. I want to explore but wants to be productive. I am not getting any younger but I am still aggressive when it comes to spur of the moment decisions. I just hope I won't end up frustrated.

Whatever decisions I am going to do in the coming days, I hope GOD will guide me always and lead me to the right path. Ciao pips!

LOVING ONLINE COUPONS

Posted by shierylssi at 5:52 AM 0 comments
I know I have yet to try this one in August but the thought of it, I am so excited and happy. I bought a coupon for a burger purchase at Offbeat Cafe in Makati. I am so happy because I have been reading so much about this cafe.

The Krispy Kreme burger may sound weird but nonetheless, unique. I will really blog about my experience on that burger. Can't wait for August. One thing also made me happy is using my Paypal account to pay for the coupon. I guess I'd better get back to blogging to utilize Mr. Paypal on my coupons. I love it super...

Till my next adventure guys...ciao!

WHAT'S YOUR PERSONALITY TYPE?

Posted by shierylssi at 7:23 AM 0 comments



You Are An ENFJ



The Giver



You strive to maintain harmony in relationships, and you usually succeed.

Articulate and enthusiastic, you are good at making personal connections.

Sometimes you idealize relationships too much - and end up being let down.

You find the most energy and comfort in social situations ... where you shine.



In love, you are very protective and supporting.

However, you do need to "feel special" - and it's quite easy for you to get jealous.



At work, you are a natural leader. You can help people discover their greatest potential.

You would make a good writer, human resources director, or psychologist.



How you see yourself: Trusting, idealistic, and expressive



When other people don't get you, they see you as: Bossy, inappropriate, and loud


MOOD SWINGS

Posted by shierylssi at 7:09 AM 0 comments
I am still in my late 20's but I think I am experiencing mood swings. Let me just call it at that because lately I felt that I am happy in most days but happiness comes with a price. I also feel so sad and so demotivated to the point that I am crying. Super emotional mode.

This past days, I felt good and super excited but a friend of mine told me that my supervisor overheard that she is talking about me with the other department supervisor. I felt bad and sad because it may mean trouble. Everyday....I feel so paranoid and to the point that I feel that my friends are not talking to me anymore and they are talking behind my back. I hate it!

I felt so alone and so negative inside. Am I that bad to them or they don't want to be bad(that is why they are avoiding me)?
Up to this moment, I feel so weird...I just hope that it's just me and my weird mind but I hope that everything will be fine.I am so moody now...I am crying now...

TRANSFORMERS 3: DARK OF THE MOON

Posted by shierylssi at 5:52 AM 0 comments
Last weekend, I got the chance to watch Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon. I wasn't expecting anything because it might frustrate me. I wouldn't miss this especially because I have watched the first two Transformers(and it never failed me.) I was like a kid that day waiting patiently for my turn in the line. The moment, I was inside the movie house, the excitement kicked in. This is it!What would it be all about? Are there new characters to watch out for?I'm so thrilled.

I began to understand what happen to Cybertron(the world of Decepticons and Autobots). Their past were revealed and as the movie progresses, I learned that they still want to regain their lost world, the Cybertron in our own world. Through the help of Optimus Prime, he bought back to life Sentinel Prime-the head of the Autobots. Then chaos on earth starts to happen but it's up to the Autobots led by Optimus Prime to help the humankind.

I love how the characters also changed but my favorite Bumblebee still has the kick ass yellow Chevy Camaro. I like Optimus Prime's armory built along with his truck. Cool and awesome. I began to realize as the movie goes on that my favorite twins, Mudflap and Skids are missing. Later on, they were presented as workers in the aircraft. They still never stop arguing and talking. Sooo funny. Michael also replaced Megan Fox with Rosie Hutington-Whiteley. I am starting to like and along the way, I forgot abut Megan. hahaha.

Overall, the movie's great but the plot is still like the second part. The effects never fails to amaze me and one thing, I cried when Bumblebee was about to be executed...I will really miss him if he will die in one of the Transformers film.(I really hope Michael Bay won't do it.) In the end, the Autobots saved the day and Optimus Prime led the way.

ABREEZA WALK

Posted by shierylssi at 6:23 AM 1 comments
I am so excited with the newest mall in Davao City, Abreeza. I had the most tiring mall marathon ever. My officemates went after office hours and looked around. We saw may stores like Debenhams, Aldo, Esprit, La Senza and much more. Boy, my eyes did have fun but my legs ached. My stomach also complained after a few hours of walking and it's not even part of my plan to dine in one of the food stalls. I am so overwhelmed and felt like I'm in a different place and time. The place didn't fail me and I am so excited for the upcoming stores that will open soon. For the meantime, I am already eyeing a pair of shoes in Payless...and better grab that one soon..see you around Abreeza...Ciao!

HAPPY CAMPING

Posted by shierylssi at 5:57 AM 0 comments
I have always dreamt of camping and communing with nature. The activity makes it very worthwhile especially with family and friends. Making bonfires, fishing and even telling ghost stories when the night ends. I am thinking of roasting marshmallows while swapping stories but when the nights ends, everyone should have a good night sleep.

One thing that one should check on camping is the cabin.Log cabins should be very comfortable and complete with amenities that the family can enjoy. A cozy fireplace is one and neatly arranged beds should be available for families especially with kids. Now, I am imagining a wonderful cabin with a warm rug on the floor and hot chocolate in hand. When will the next camping be? I think I should check on my schedule...

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN by ROBERT FROST

Posted by shierylssi at 6:57 AM 0 comments
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I AM LEGEND

Posted by shierylssi at 6:18 AM 0 comments
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. Herm Albright

After a few days of watching I am Legend, I am already loving the main character, Solen Jung. A very positive lady and makes every negative situation-happy. I want that kind of attitude(yes, I always smile and laugh) but sometimes when things get worst, I tend to break down or sometimes get mad. I want to make something of myself and take chances. I am already facing a situation where I have to choose to stagnant or grow.

I hate to leave things that I am comfortable with behind but judging by the recent sudden changes, I ponder upon letting go. I have been asking signs since last year but I think some of the signs are already there. I now facing the situation wherein I should acknowledge them or just ignore or maybe yet ask another sign. I am ready to take chances but till then I would have to say..let's just wait till June 30 ends..(Hope I will be making the right decision).

CITYVILLE FANCY

Posted by shierylssi at 5:55 AM 0 comments
I have friends who were addicted to Cityville in Facebook and all the time I am online, they always ignore me on the chat box. I became curious and what to see if this game really is addictive. I decided a Cityville walkthrough would be very helpful in this game. I found the site very helpful and it made me more excited to try Cityville. So, next time I fail to reply on your chat message...expect that I am playing Cityville.

ON CHOOSING THE MOST APPEALING GARDEN....

Posted by shierylssi at 7:00 AM 0 comments



You Are Competent



You've never had a problem speaking your mind. You are extremely honest.

You are naturally competitive and a bit of a fighter. You crave victory.



Whenever possible, you like to be in control. You are good at running things.

You like to put yourself to the test. You don't feel alive unless you feel challenged.

Somewhere, somehow I lost my way
Along lifes path I fear
But carry on I will today
Where shall I go from here?

Go West, go West, like days of old
Brave men did clear a trail
They went with hopes of finding gold
Most searched to no avail

Head South where warm waves lap the shore
Where pirates hid their loot
Rum and jewels from days or yore
Lay buried 'neath the root

Out to the East, the Maritimes
Fishermen ply their trade
And jot down many salty rhymes
You'd think they had it made

Yet to the North the ice adn snow
Call me day and night
It's North I think I have to go
In order to be right

The barren land so desolate
Where jus the strong get by
Decisions made with skill and wit
Might mean that you don't die

Though searching for myself it seems
To carry on in vain
And nightly even in my dreams
My tears still flow like rain

But where I've gone it matters not
I'm there and that's the fact
I have to take what life has brought
And happy I must act

Yet happiness and I won't meet
Only the rarest day
Not games I play nor food I eat
Brings joy in any way

Direction doesn't matter though
It's in my head I'm lost
Define myeslf I must I know
Regardless of the cost

My life's been lived fro the most part
Both out of space and time
In bygone days and works of art
The era that was mine

Paintings, pictures, and books I've read
Tells where I should have been
In an age long long dead
I'm sure that was my scene

To travel to a different place
Or to a different time
I wish I could by some sweet grace
Go back in more than rhyme

This world today, this modern age
There's little for me here
I search and search, a war I wage
Myself, my hope, my fear

The day will come, i'm sure it will
When from myself I'm wrest
At peace, at calm, on waters still
Then I'll be at my best

NO PUN INTENDED

Posted by shierylssi at 6:28 AM 0 comments
I learned so much about this word in my Marketing class, way back in college. My professor told us that sometimes a word can have different meanings or sometimes a sentence. One should say-no pun intended to tell someone that it has no other meaning.

Today, I suddenly remembered this word when I encountered a situation where a person reacted on a word that is commonly used in the area. She asked to refrain answering that word because it has a different meaning. I was shocked...I began to question why and certain thoughts came into my mind like "is she really thinking about that when we answer like that everyday?". It's funny because that person involved is someone mature and should deal with the word professionally. I really want to frown and laugh at the same time...It sounded like a joke in the office because someone answered back and got what she was really referring to. It sounded weird.

Before I made this post, I instantly look up the word because I knew that both word is spelled differently but pronounced the same. Yes, according to my research...it's entirely different. It's just how the person thinks it is and how it used in a sentence. Now I strongly believe there's nothing wrong with it. So, from this day forward....I am still gonna use the word. Better look up the word first before reacting...okay? I will just make you look so mature in content(pun intended)=)

FYI: The word is coming...it sounds like cumming(for her)...(Puhlllezzzz...)

KILLING THE ONLINE TIME

Posted by shierylssi at 6:19 AM 0 comments
I sometimes feel that online life is very boring as well as reality..hehehe. Facebook isn't that exciting anymore but I get to connect with friends that is why I go online. After Facebook, whatever I fancy that day...it will be next. If I want to look at fashion sites, I usually devote my time in sites like People, Instyle and Lucky. If I also get a little creative, I go to Looklet, Littlemissdressup and Streetpeeper. Those sites I really go to from time to time and by the way, I also like Stylebible(I almost forgot this Philippine fashion site.)

On days that I feel so patient, I go to a movie site where I can watch free movies and even download it. I don't download though especially movies because they say it contains more that it has.(hope you get what I mean..)

Today, I feel blah and I want to let my heart jump...hahaha..not the happy jump though.I am watching Scream 4. Just by the title, it means horror...I really love this and would love to watch this over and over again..It's my high school scary movie and now, it's back. Hope to jump...(with pun intended) Ciao!

MY LATEST FIXATION

Posted by shierylssi at 6:19 AM 0 comments
I am obsessed with black opaque tights but I don't know if I can give justice to this pretty little thing. You see, I have big thighs and legs so I don't know if it will look good on me-still, I found someone online who sells them and agrees to just meet up at a nearby mall. Good thing cause I don't have to ask someone from abroad to send them to me.(giddy mode)

For now, will think of ways to wear such lovely piece of fashion..ciao!

MY GIFT TO YOU by Lonely Shadow

Posted by shierylssi at 6:12 AM 0 comments

I live through my dark existence
only to bask in your beauty
your eyes that shine like sapphires
your smile that brightens even my sad existence
I envy the wind that runs through your hair
that touches your lips
I long to touch you
to hold you in my arms but I cannot
for your heart belongs to another
so, I can only love you from afar
your friendship means more to me
than anything this world provides
but like an angel you touched my heart
in a way that I've never felt before
cause I've never known what love is until this day
I know that we are only friends
but my heart wishes it to be more
so I will still hope and dream
that one day I can feel your lips pressed to mine
to hold you in my arms and say, "I love you"

IF YOU ASK ME....

Posted by shierylssi at 5:22 AM 0 comments
When did this started? I would probably list all the wonderful memories of our love-hate relationship before...I developed my teeny weeny infatuation of you-the moment I rode with you on the tricycle.(you'd freak out by now if you read this..hahaha, I can't really figure out how to say this but for the meantime-while preparing for my courageous speech..let me just post it here)=)

Had to lend you a P10 before just to be part of the Dancesport Group but you didn't kept your promise...instead we had a tag of "hair" war just to get my P10...good thing my hair's strong..hehehe. You also persuade me to take the AdDU exam because you already had your schedule..(I thought, how sweet!) You helped me out but in the end, our schedules are not the same..haaayyy. Due probably of your frustration of the schedules, you ask me to walk to the school gate first and pretend we didn't arrive together. Gosh, I hate you for that..but then again after a few days..you looked amazing again.(cheshire cat grin)

Fast forward to college days, I never had news about you but I know that you are studying in school that your mother wants..hahaha. (You even asked me to study at the nearby school...what were you thinking that time?)

Just in time for my new job in Loveland...you invited me out but you let me pay...(I forgot my little infatuation of you that time and felt that it's a friendly gesture to do so..)We met up and my golly, you awaken that sleeping heart of mine...it went restless and nevertheless...I will always remember that day. We had endless talks on the phone that time and I will always treasure that.

Now your in a country that's camels exist...(not on the wandering on the roads though) and we had this little communication in a social networking site called Facebook.(Thank you, Mr. Zuckerberg) I just go on wondering if what it would be like to say this all to you. I can't even have the courage to say or even pinch your cheeks(FYI: I promised myself to pinch you the day I see you again) last April 11. I am still looking forward to seeing you again and will be holding on to the promise that we will eat out. Maybe, during that time I can say all the things I want to say..I miss you right now and will still be missing you-unless your Facebook account says "It's complicated or In a relationship".(sad face)


PS: I still have your college graduation photo...will ask you to sign it(baka kasi sabihin nilang ninakaw ko..hahaha)

CRAVING FOR DURIAN

Posted by shierylssi at 5:48 AM 0 comments

I am craving durian right now. As in now!!! I'll never get enough of durian even though they say it cause high blood pressure. This time of the year if Araw ng Dabaw and you can see durian in the sidewalks but the price is a bit expensive compared to Kadayawan Festival in August....(though I don't know how long I can withstand the craving.hehehe)

I can already smell them around me and just one smell of it makes me crave. haaaayyyy...I hope I can successfully get through this craving...(now what will I buy- will it be canyao???or duco?? or perhaps the native kind??-hehehe)ciao!

DUH!

Posted by shierylssi at 5:28 AM 0 comments
I am struggling and I am also reviving my site just to reap the promise of earning through Goggle ads. I am also helping some Filipinos because of the jobs I post in my other blog but I get so lazy sometimes that I neglect it. I feel so drain and I don't know what to do. I am soul searching but I don't know where to start.

I have tried going to the gym before-it did made me hyper after work but going to the gym makes my budget ruined. hahaha. I don't know what I really need right now. My career is going elsewhere. I don't have a sizzling lovelife and a wonderful after work gimiks. I want to go on vacation but taking a vacation leave is way out of my list.(one, because I'm scheduled to go on leave on November and second, I should write our boss a letter-if ever I am going to change it.) I am going to Eden by next week to accompany a relative(but I don't know if I'll ever enjoy it due to time constraints.) I just pray that I will feel revived after the nature get away.

By the way, I cry when I am sad, angry, disappointed and happy. Call me a cry baby but I don't expect you to judge me if I cry. I'll cry if I want to and I'll be laughing as long as I am happy. I am also good at pretending. Sometimes I looked okay but I am not. I am sorry if hurt you when I am in a bad mood. I didn't mean that. Some other factors make me crazy and lost.(hehehe) like the recent news and also the different news in the office. Today is candid thoughts day and I do hope you'll forgive for blabbing about whatever I think right now. (that is why the title is "duh!"-I know this is what you are thinking about my post)*smile*. Ok, enough of the blah...see you around. ciao!

THE SOURCE OF JOY AND LAUGHTER

Posted by shierylssi at 5:19 AM 0 comments

Most of my waking hours are spent working in an office full of different personalities.(not to mention our clients.)These people keep me sane and even grounded sometimes. For the past 5 years, I have also tried searching for other pasture-greener than what I have now. One thing that keeps me or should I say pulling me back is the people in our division. I can say they keep my emotions in its normal state. We cry, we laugh, we gossip and we rant. We are one. We are all different but we are united as one. I can't really explain what bonds us together or what is the common between us. The important thing is that we have fun, enjoy each other and maintain the relationship.

SIGNING UP IN A WEB DIRECTORY

Posted by shierylssi at 3:46 AM 0 comments
I have always wondered why blogging became so rampant. I then realized that sharing ideas and topics online can help more people and reach out to their needs. I can attest to that because I sometimes search for mundane things but I can easily find it online.

I am also happy that bloggers like me and other writers have been so helpful in the internet. Some businesses also find their niche in the internet rather than the physical set up store. One website directory that I found very useful is jasminedirectory.com. This business web directory helps businesses reach out more readers and also their expert individuals maintains and reviews all the businesses to be categorized. Aside from that they also offer 100% SEO friendly links, 5 direct links that can immediately direct the researchers in the website, W3 css and HTML valid automatic thumbnail.

I also particularly like the website set up of jasminedirectory.com. It's very cool and professional style layout makes it much easier for the visitors to browse the list of businesses listed. The categories are well arranged and they can easily contact the site for business listing. A good indication of a serious business is how it delivers. I guess having seen their website, I can say that jasminedirectory.com really means business. A business that not only aims for income but also helps other business earn income and recognition above all else.

Now, a brilliant idea suddenly came up-what about having my online business?. I can seek the help of jasminedirectory.com to be known and be profitable too. The problem is I don't know how to start. It made my head ache and better shrug that idea first and for now, I will just refer my online friends to this wonderful discovery of mine and maybe perhaps learn from them in the future.
