Top 10 Things I Can’t Live Without

20.January.2011

I thought it best to start the new year right and post a top ten list about myself that’s a little bit more personal than the previous top ten lists I’ve made, which were about the famous women from movies and TV dramas that I find hot/sexy.

And, voilà! Here’s the first of my top ten lists this 2011. The idea is to start from within—so here, I write something primarily about myself—and then gradually move outwards, to other topics. My next top ten list would probably be about traditional politics or something equally repugnant. Be sure to come back and find out if that’s the case (maybe early next month, to provide a little negativity before the cheesiness of Valentine’s Day gets the best of me).

Without further ado: presenting, the top ten things yours truly can’t live without (arranged in no particular order):

AN ENTERTAINING and/or THOUGHT-PROVOKING READ

I must buy (or borrow), read, and finish this book before 2011 ends. (Credit: outrospection.org)

If you look near the bottom of this blog’s sidebar, you’ll find a ‘stack of books’ icon/badge. If you click it, you are brought to readtheprintedword.org. As with their dictum:

We support the printed word in all its forms: newspapers, magazines, and of course books. We think reading on computers or phones or whatever is fine, but it cannot replace the experience of reading words printed on paper. We pledge to continue reading the printed word in the digital era and beyond.”

I, too, support all forms of text, and I simply can’t get enough of it—well, at least the entertaining and/or thought-provoking kind.

I can’t go a day without reading something entertaining and/or stimulating. It can be something online, but I prefer to read from something I can touch—including, but not limited to, books, newspapers, or magazines, since there’s a whole lot of text to read elsewhere: on letters, notes, posters, receipts, signs, teasers, armchairs, bathroom cubicle doors and walls… well, you catch my drift.

There’s a vast collection of written material in the world—and I intend to lay my eyes on (and read) as much of it as humanly possible.

I’m currently reading: Anne Rice’s classic erotic trilogy of Sleeping Beauty, which I’ve tried to finish for many months now—I’m having trouble with the maledom and femdom scenes, and with the innumerable haunting, graphic images of cruelty and humiliation. Otherwise, the trilogy as a whole is one strikingly descriptive, deftly written erotic masterpiece.

Other books I desperately want to buy (or borrow) and read/finish reading within the year:

The Holocaust, Martin Gilbert

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Dave Eggers

The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived, Steven K. Scott

COFFEE (or TEA)

My elixir. (Credit: domsmflpage.blogspot.com)

Ever since I took my first sip of black, sugarless coffee when I was just seven years old, I simply couldn’t get enough of it. Attribute that to coffee’s addictive property. As for my continual drinking of coffee to this day and the foreseeable future, credit that to my admiration and emulation of one Leroy Jethro Gibbs, whose appetite for caffeine may never be matched by anyone.

So I’ve been a fervent coffee drinker since I was seven. And considering that on most days, I don’t drink just one cup (on bad days, two to three; on worse days I drink about five to six cups), I guess I’m lucky that I’ve never really had difficulty sleeping (even after drinking coffee or espresso before bed) and that I haven’t been transformed into an anxious, irritable, jittery, restless guy by now.

Good thing that whenever I need to take it down a notch, there’s always tea—though I’m not entirely certain it does have less caffeine content than coffee, on the whole. But it sure helps with the caffeine detox.

GREAT MUSIC (I can sing or dance to)

Misery? Heaven. (Credit: novelasymas.com)

Music can really make—or break—my day. Put me in a car for five hours and put Misery on repeat the whole time: heaven. Put me in a car for five hours and put It’s A Small World or Cher’s Believe or any Justin Bieber song (sorry Bieber fans, his music isn’t my cup of tea) on repeat: either I go bonkers or I kill myself.

But GREAT music? It lifts my soul. It motivates me to do things I normally wouldn’t want to do, like when I was putting off writing my practicum manuscript, but then I rediscovered my love for Coldplay that I downloaded every song from Parachutes to Viva La VidaProspekt’s March Edition (plus LeftRightLeftRightLeft) and I wound up listening to their music while writing. To my surprise, I had enough motivation—and inspiration—to write and finish my well-written manuscript (eherm, that’s according to my academic adviser).

This is the part where I offer a thousand thanks to Coldplay, for coming up with melodic masterpieces like Fix You, In My Place, The Hardest Part, Violet Hill, and Viva La Vida. I probably wouldn’t have graduated from college without your beautiful music.

HEARTY LAUGHTER

I don’t think laughter is ‘the best medicine’—but I believe life truly isn’t life without it. So I frequently try to get doses of laughter each day of my life. How? I get it when and where I can—comic strips, news stories of oddity and/or stupidity, bloopers, comedy movies, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Conan, Chelsea Lately, 30 Rock, TMZ, improv: Whose Line Is It Anyway? US version (pictured above), Pablo Francisco, ventriloquist Jeff Dunham (I particularly love Walter, Bubba J and Achmed the Dead Terrorist), and the funny stories my brother and sister bring home from school almost every day.

Number of times I’ve watched all eight seasons of Whose Line Is It Anyway? (WLIIA) on YouTube: FIVE. I swear, it never gets old. If you want to see for yourself, click here.

My Favorite Guests on WLIIA: Denny Siegel, Brad Sherwood, Greg Proops, Jeff Davis, and the inimitable Josie Lawrence.

My Favorite Moments on WLIIA: when Colin cracks up (which is rare), when Colin makes Ryan laugh uncontrollably (and everyone else in the process), when Wayne does his awesome musical impersonations (MJ, Louie Armstrong, etc.), when the cast members slip up, and when the four talented improv performers make fun of the show’s host, Drew Carey.

MAMA’S COOKING

Team Sinigang up against Team Nilaga. Me? I'd go for either if Mama's cooking. (Credit: kathlyn.tumblr.com)

Mama makes the best Sinigang na Baboy (pork and vegetables in tamarind broth), Nilagang Baboy (boiled pork and vegetables), Chicken-Pork Adobo, and Chicken Afritada. On second thought, I take that back. EVERY FOOD SHE MAKES IS SCRUMPTIOUS. And there’s nothing you can say (or do) to convince me otherwise.

But of course there are days when Mama can’t cook for the family—she is getting older, after all.  That’s when we buy viand from the nearby carinderia.

How do I manage to live through such days? I guess this is just a clear indication that it’s not Mama’s cooking that I absolutely can’t live without, but rather her affection, concern, and yes, even her (almost) daily nagging.

I do love Mama with all my heart—despite the challenges that come with her flair for the dramatic and penchant for hyperbole.

NAVAL CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIVE SERVICE (NCIS)

NCIS' young core: Abby Sciuto, Tim McGee, Ziva David, and Tony DiNozzo. (Credit: ncisfanwiki.com)

Ever since my dear friend Lulu introduced me to NCIS, it has been my oasis—my refuge, my sanctuary—during some of the darkest, lowest points of my life.

She introduced me to this fantastic show right at the perfect moment, too—just after I failed miserably to convince the one I loved at the time to choose me and not the guy her best friend recommended her to date (whom she hasn’t seen then, by the way). Well, best friend trumps suitor any day. And ever since the horrible fallout after that debacle, I’ve been an avid follower of Gibbs and company. I vividly remember going to extreme lengths just to get to watch the latest episode back then (we didn’t have DSL at the time).

During season breaks, I do countless reruns. This show is THAT good.

NCIS is the most-watched TV drama in the US (actually, the term ‘drama’ falls short of what the show really is: a procedural drama with healthy heaps of comedy here and there, just when you least expect it), and the show keeps on getting more and more viewers, followers, and supporters, despite being in its 8th season (that’s old age for TV shows).

And it’s not just watching the latest episode or doing reruns galore that I obsess on, either. I also spend time thinking about the characters and the cast. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of the men and women that make NCIS the amazing show that it is.

So, to everyone involved in its production: cheers! I hope this ride never ends, but even as I think and write that, I know the end will inevitably come (not any time soon, I pray). C’est la vie.

NOVELTY

A dose of novelty I enjoyed very much when I first saw it. I still enjoy watching it again and again and again. (Credit: coldplay.com)

We all need a breath of fresh air every now and then, no? Which is what I crave almost everyday, as I roam the Internet looking for new things to see, hear, watch, and experience. I don’t really discriminate as to what new thing I want to discover—it could be a TV show (most recently: Flashforward and Nikita), music (Chances by Five For Fighting, Mike Tompkins’ a cappella covers), movies (read about my recent movie marathon here), videos (pictured above: music video for Coldplay’s Strawberry Swing), or people (my fellow Filipino bloggers here on WordPress: Mabuhay, kababayans!).

I get novelty when and where I can, but of course, I don’t get it more often than I’d like to.

New things I’m up to right now:

—Trying to memorize the Numa Numa song (Dragostea Din Tei by O-Zone). Though I don’t intend to make a video like Numa Numa guy. I can never be entirely sure I won’t do it though. What if one day, one of the screws in my head gets loose and I decide to make my own Numa Numa video? Now, if only I can memorize the freaking song (it’s Romanian, if you’re wondering).

—Developing my connections with fellow bloggers: Filipinos and foreigners alike! 🙂

—Self-retraining to become an expert pianist. :mrgreen:

TETRIS

Tetris Love (Credit: cookiemagik.deviantart.com)

I’ve always been a fan of Tetris—ever since I first played it on my Game Boy and NES console. And as these two gaming platforms eventually faded into oblivion, my liking for this simple, colorful game gradually vanished as well.

Thankfully, my appreciation for this classic puzzle game has been rejuvenated when I saw Tony DiNozzo playing Tetris on his mobile phone in an early episode of NCIS.

Currently, I play it whenever I have time to kill—when I’m at the back of a very long line at the bank, while I’m commuting to a place more than a few minutes away, or whenever/wherever I get bored.

Yep. I downloaded Tetris to my mobile phone. Lately, I’ve been using it to play the game, not to text or call anyone.

TOAST

Ze Maillard (say may-YAR) Reaction. (Credit: internetbumperstickers.com)

Yes I do. After eating the same, boring type of bread all my life, I’m at the point where I’ve had enough of bland, stale, untoasted bread.

We’ve always had a toaster as far as I can remember, but I never really bothered to use it (out of pure indolence, I suppose). It was only when I hit college that I refused to eat bread that’s not toasted or even remotely hot or crisp.

After seeing Wilson eat tons of PBJ (Peanut Butter and Jelly) sandwiches on House, I decided to try eating PBJ on both stale and toasted bread to compare, and goodness me! The toasted PBJ sandwich tasted ten times better than its unburnt counterpart.

I tried with other toppings (cheese, jam, peanut butter, plain butter) and I’ve come to the same conclusion as well. It seems that anything put on toasted bread tastes way better than when it’s put on plain bread.

THE INTERNET

I can haz conneczion? (Credit: thesharkguys.com)

Pretty much self-explanatory, don’t you think?

Blogs, the text and images found on them, this post, you reading this—all dependent on the Internet’s continuous existence.

I confess: I am directly connected to the Internet. I am completely dependent on it and the speed of my Internet connection.

Sometimes I attempt to unplug, even for just a whole day, but I don’t think that’s something I can afford to do now—when Thread of Truth is finally kicking into high gear. 😀

    How many minutes did it take me to read this from start to end? I do not know, I never check the time when I read, but I do not care. This is a very great read. I love everything you have written. All of those idiosyncrasies are very interesting. This makes me want to know you more.

    What bothers me now is how you wrote this. Did you write this for just one day? One sitting? I really do not care but a long blog post amazes me.

    Whenever I get to see the Read the Printed Word campaign on a blog, I assume that the owner really reads and that makes me happy. True enough, the experience of reading printed materials is nothing compared to reading on a screen of a computer or mobile phone. With the advent of today’s technology, I fear the day when the printed novels and newspapers will be outdated. What about my books? I just cannot dispose of them once they become out of fashion. But then again, I strongly believe that that day will not come. As long as individuals like you exist, printed materials will still be read.

    If it has to be something thought-provoking, I recommend you read Haruki Murakami. He is such a great author. And, oh, he is a Japanese.

    I love coffee, too. I would even take out a good amount of money for an expensive coffee outdoors. And that happens everyday. As I sip the goodness of coffee, I usually read a good book or write on my blog.

    You love Maroon 5 and Coldplay? Ow. Then maybe we are close to being music lovers. Or maybe you like Radiohead. For more than a year now, I have been into an Irish duo named The Guggenheim Grotto. You would love them, I guess.

    If it has to be comedy, then it must The Big Bang Theory. Nothing else compares to the dose of laughter I get from Big Bang. Now that the 4 seasons of Big Bang has been given another three years, I will definitely enjoy the coming weeks with the science geeks and their antics.

    Even if NCIS is the most-watched drama series in the US, I still go for Fringe. The ratings are not good for the latest season of Fringe, but the story is still fantastic for me. Things might fall short of my expectations once I watch NCIS. I still have several series to finish watching including Flashforward, but it tends to be so boring. It was only good at its pilot episode. No wonder why it was not picked for another season.

    Strawberry Swing, the image you have inserted to that part where you love novelty, reminds me of the music videos of Her Beautiful Ideas by The Guggenheim Grotto and Her Morning Elegance by Oren Lavie. That is novelty for me. Haven’t I told you I love Guggenheim?

    Most of the things you have listed would be included on mine with the inclusion of Fringe, The Big Bang Theory, and sadness.

    There is more to say, but let this suffice for now. I will not look back to check what I have written, so please bear with the inconvenience of this lengthy comment.

    Have a nice day. Write more.

      Wow. In the same way that you’re amazed with my lengthy post, I’m very much amazed with your long comment. So here’s my extended response to your long comment. 😛

      To begin, I’d like to say that I’m truly appreciative of your kind words. I am happy that what I wrote managed to engage and entertain you, and more importantly, that you enjoyed reading it. Also, I’m quite transparent and honest about myself, so you are welcome to get to know me more—in which case, I’d get to know you more as well. That makes for twice the fun. 🙂

      Whoa. You actually read this from start to finish? I didn’t think anyone would bother. But to answer your question, my writing process is more like a jigsaw puzzle. I come up with a topic and an outline, and then I write bits and pieces whenever inspiration hits me. When I feel like I have enough, I consolidate the bits and pieces into a coherent whole, which takes about an hour or two. So, the whole process usually takes a couple of days, depending on how much inspiration I get struck with day to day.

      Ah, yes. I completely agree. Don’t worry. The printed word will live on. I’m certain that even when print goes out of vogue, whatever printed material we still have will continue to exist, so long as there are people like us who consider it sacred.

      Haruki Murakami. Noted.

      Long live coffee! Although I prefer homemade coffee to expensive coffee bought from some cafe (I’ve been to Starbucks twice my whole life: the first time I accompanied a friend as she bought pastry, the second I was coerced by friends to hangout there and they agreed to buy me coffee just so I’d get to drink Starbucks coffee even once in my life).

      Wow. We must be kindred spirits or something. I go gaga over Radiohead too. I have to try Guggenheim sometime soon, then.

      A lot of people have insisted that I watch Big Bang, and I promise to, though I’m not sure when I’ll have the time, what with all the other TV shows I’m currently committed to. And since you strongly recommend it, I’ll find the time. Let you know what I think of it after watching a few episodes.

      It’s a shame that Flashforward jumped the shark so quickly. You’re right. It started with bang, ended with a ‘poof!’. That’s exactly why it wasn’t renewed for a second season. But still. What a waste of such a compelling concept.

      Ah, Fringe. Another show I plan to watch, but simply don’t have the time for. Rest assured mate, I’ll get to it as soon as I’m able.

      Yep, Guggenheim. Got it. I guess I’ll start with those two music videos. Great!

      No worries. You can always comment again when you have more to add. Oh, and remember when you helped me out with my recent comment on your blog? I’ll do the same for you here. I’ll make sure to make your comment error-free. 🙂

      Me? Write more? You can count on it.

      Whew! Thanks for taking the time to read the whole thing and for the hearty comment. Cheers!

        Nabasa ko dun sa About #2 mo na nagyoyosi ka (tsaka you’re not proud of it). Dito ko lang naisipang banggitin. Hehe.

        Nung college ako nagstart, tamang trip lang. Tapos ayun, yosi, moni, kwentuhan. Those were great days. 😀 (Patay ako pag nakita ng ‘rents ko tong blog ko. Sabihin puro bisyo ako nung college. lol)

    @1.Books are good companions, they are friends for keeps, indeed.
    @2. I don’t drink coffee, I don’t know how it feels. But everytime I try to eat “coffee crumble”-flavored ice cream, my tummy goes tralalala.
    @3. The scientist is my favorite song of coldplay. Just so you know.:P
    @4. It’s such a good thing to spend most of your time, being so happy that you laugh so hard and no sound comes out. I call it retarded seal moments, as I read it once.
    @5. DROOLS*
    @7. FREE PIANO LESSONS PLEASE? :)) JK.
    @9. The magic bread toaster. =))
    @10. Check!

    • 20.January.2011 9:01 pm

      @4. I mean, as I read it once in Tumblr.

    • 20.January.2011 10:37 pm

      Fradge! Ni-add nga pala kita sa blogroll ko, ayos lang ba?

      Anyway, you’re one of the rare people I know who don’t drink coffee. That’s refreshing. 🙂

      Hmm. What’s up with your tummy going tralala after coffee crumble? 😐

      The Scientist is your favorite Coldplay song? Cool! I think it fits your personality too.

      Retarded seal moments? I don’t get it. Please elaborate!

      Oh, don’t drool just yet. Wait ’til you get to taste Mama’s cooking (though how or when that would happen is completely lost on me).

      Piano lessons? Are you sure? 😀 I hope you got the inside joke I was trying to get away with in that item. Did you? 😛

      Glad you got a laugh out of #9 and that you agree with #10. 🙂

    • 20.January.2011 10:54 pm

      Hi, mate. Oh, since you’re here too, I’d like to point out that I added you to my blogroll. I hope you’re cool with that.

        20.January.2011 11:03 pm

        Thanks a lot. That is so cool! 🙂

        What you do?

  5. 20.January.2011 10:53 pm

    Ayos na ayos lang. 😀 E sumasama kasi tiyan ko dun e. Lalo na siguro pag coffee na talaga. :p

    What made you say that The Scientist suits my personality? Just curious. 🙂

    Retarded seal moments, yung mga panahong tumatawa ka tapos wala ng sound yung lumalabas tapos pumapalakpak palakpak ka pa. Yun yun. Haha.

    About the piano stuff, did I take it too literally? Sorry, though. What’s the hidden joke, anyway? Spill it. Haha.

    I guess I really need to upgrade my slow system. HAHA.

    • 20.January.2011 11:26 pm

      Ang weird naman niyang tiyan mo. Ako naman sa gatas. Lactose intolerance ba. Pero weird din tong saken, kasi sa fresh milk lang. Pag powdered milk o ibang dairy products wala namang aberya. =))

      Well, since I haven’t known you long enough to know you well, I’ll just say this: I have this gut feeling that you have a certain appreciation for the tragedies and the hurt humans experience, not because you’re sadistic, masochistic, or anything of the sort—but because you have this special understanding of how the pain and tears actually underscore our humanity and strength as a species, which is contrary to the popular (albeit mistaken) belief that feeling pain and crying is proof of our weakness and frailty.

      Ah, gets. Akala ko kasi yung ‘seal’ sa ‘retarded seal moments’ e yung seal na selyo. Seal pala na hayop. =)) Toinks. 😀

      As to the piano thing, at first I meant it just literally. I really am training myself again to get better at playing the keys, but I thought of sneaking a little joke (hint: it’s the reason why I put in that link to how to pronounce ‘pianist’) into it, just for fun. 😛

      One more clue? It’s a green joke (ibig sabihin bawal i-post yung explanation hehe).

      • 28.January.2011 7:43 pm

        Medyo weird din pala, kasi okay lang naman ako sa coffee candies. Haha. Pano kaya nung bata ka? Sabagay, di naman fresh milk pinapainom sa bata. Baka may bacteria yung fresh milk na nagttrigger ng reaction sa tiyan mo. 😀

        That’s one helluva explanation huh? Hahaha. Anyway, I’m not sure if I will agree to what you have said, for I maybe am, or not. Probably it depends on the situation. Case to case basis baga. Haha. 😀

        I didn’t get the green joke. :)) LOL@me.

      • 28.January.2011 9:32 pm

        Yun pa pala, nung high school, regular drinker naman ako ng fresh milk, pero wala namang rebolusyong nagaganap sa tiyan ko right after drinking fresh milk. Nitong college lang nagstart magkaganun. Weird talaga.

        Hmm. Onga. Makapag-try nga ng ibang brand ng fresh milk. 😀

        Sabagay. Case to case basis nga siguro yan. Basta asteeg pa din na pareho tayong fan ng Coldplay. 🙂

        Ay nako, email ko na nga lang sa’yo yung explanation. =))

    Oh, anyway. I play piano! I lost my interest and stopped when I was on High School. But right now I’m self-retraining, too and practicing some piece. We have a loooot in common. Great post. 🙂

    • 21.January.2011 3:00 pm

      Hi, Angel! Whoa, why are you allowed to drink just decaf?

      Cool! We really should dedicate ourselves to retraining and getting better at the piano. We already know how to play it, we just need some more focus and practice and we’ll be able to master it in no time. 😀

      Wow. We do have a lot in common. We could be brother and sister in a parallel universe. 🙂

        Just watched the latest episode of Big Bang Theory. My stomach ached badly.

      • 21.January.2011 4:41 pm

        Yeah, I saw on the site I frequent that there’s a new episode of Big Bang. Good for you. As for me, I’m currently watching the latest episode of The Mentalist.

      • Neutral Universe permalink
        21.January.2011 4:43 pm

        If only I can spend more time watching The Mentalist, Flashforward, and Boardwalk Empire, and Pushing Daisies, and finish the effin Heroes, and whatnots.

        Tomorrow is a Fringe day. I am so excited.

      • 21.January.2011 5:03 pm

        Yeah, I wish I had more time to watch TV shows too.

        Oh, right. Fringe is on Fridays in the US. I’m sure you can’t wait. 🙂

        I’ve finished Flashforward, and I must say (even though this could spoil it for you) that the show deserves one more full season, or 12 or even just one more episode. Well, all that tells you is that they left a pretty deep cliffhanger at the end. It makes me so sad that whatever the writers/producers had in store for us in season 2 will never see the light of day.

      • Neutral Universe permalink
        21.January.2011 5:13 pm

        Being preoccupied by Fringe, I barely have plans yet to finish flashforward. Time will tell. I have already watched the first three episodes. And, sadly, I got bored because of too much flashbacks.

      • 21.January.2011 5:41 pm

        That’s very true, about Flashforward. The show pretty much hit a slump after the first one or two episodes up until the (spoiler again) kind of anticlimactic final episode.

  10. Neutral Universe permalink
    21.January.2011 5:46 pm

    Thanks a lot for inspiring me.

    I am now excited to get back to Flashforward. 🙂

    • 21.January.2011 6:09 pm

      You’re welcome. I think suffering through the show’s dull moments is actually quite worth it, if only because the show as a whole makes us look at our lives and decisions with more focus and seriousness.

      And I’d just like to add: even though Dmitri is sort of a wuss, I really love his character.

  11. 22.January.2011 12:55 am

    HAHA! ang ganda ng rason, “tamang trip lang” 😀
    Nagyosi ako kasi teenager ako. LOL! yan ang rason! :))

    Pumasok na rin sa isip ko na baka mabasa ni mama yung blog ko kasi naman pa-FB FB pa yun. O baka nabasa na nya. Nakakahiya ako. haha!

      Mas makulit naman ata yang rason mo. 😀

      Oo. Tamang trip lang talaga. Walang nag-alok, walang nag-aya, walang outside factors. Na-tripan ko lang talaga. Tapos yun. Sarap. Saya. Sana maulit pa. Corny. =))

      Hala ka. Sana wala ka pang nilalagay dun sa blog mo na mejo ayaw mong makarating sa mama mo. 😛

      Mga ‘rents ko din madalas online e. Buti wala akong FB, tsaka di naka-activate yung Yahoo! Updates ko. Hehe.

    Ako, pinilit ko yung kaibigan ko na turuan ako kung paano. Napapa-iling sya habang tinuturuan ako. haha! Wala syang nagawa, mapilit ako eh.

    May mga nailagay na ‘ko na di nila magugustuhan o ikakagulat nila kaya kinakabahan ako paminsan-minsan. haha!

      Kawawa naman yung kaibigan mong yun. Pano kung mapasama ka sa pagyoyosi mo *knock on wood* (Talagang ginawa ko yan. Kinatok ko ng tatlong beses yung study table ko. :D) baka makonsiyensya siya. Sabagay, ikaw naman yung nagpumilit e, so ayos lang siya dapat. =))

      Naku naku. Pero di ka pa naman siguro kinakausap ng mga magulang mo tungkol jan sa mga bagay na di nila magugustuhan o ikagugulat nila, ano? Edi in the clear ka pa. Pero kabahan ka pa din. Hehe.

    Wala ng reply button sa reply mo. Kaya dito na lang. :))

    Anong fresh milk ba yang iniinom mo? Baka nga sa brand. Pero weird nga yun a. Unless may nagbago sa hormones(?) mo. Haha. Pauso e.

    Sige e-mail mo na lang sakin. Kunwari secret natin. Haha.

      Hehe. Nestle Fresh Milk yung may “adverse effects” tapos pag Magnolia Fresh Milk wala naman. Yun na nga siguro. Ma-try din ang Alaska Fresh Milk. Pag wala ding rebolusyon dun, edi ibig sabihin sa Nestle nga lang ako intolerant, hindi sa lahat ng fresh milk.

      Grabe, may nagbago sa hormones ko? Ano yun, naging babae ako or something? =))

      Sige sige. Email ko ngayon na. 😛

      • 29.January.2011 10:43 pm

        Try mo yung isa. Yung may cow. Nakalimutan ko kung ano e. Cow head ata yun. Haha.

        HAHA. Mali na naman term ko. Okay, fine. Hahaha.

        Alam mo ba e-add ko?

        Anyway, sorry kung puro tawa reply ko. Kasi matik na talagang nagttype ng tawa yung kamay ko e. :))

      • 29.January.2011 10:56 pm

        Tama, Cowhead nga yun. Sige, try ko din yun.

        Napaisip naman tuloy ako kung ano talaga yung gusto mong sabihin tapos hormones lang yung word na ginamit mo. =))

        Haha. Ayos lang. Basta masaya ka, masaya na din ako. lol

  14. 29.January.2011 10:59 pm

    E mahina kasi ko sa science e. (Science nga lang ba?) :)) Kaya di ko mahanap yung right term.

    Anyway, naiyak ka pa. Hahahaha.

    • 29.January.2011 11:09 pm

      Naiyak? Alin ba, yung ‘lol’ sa dulo nung comment ko? lol yan as in LOL. =)) Di ko lang na all caps.

    We have 2 things in common – the coffee and the internet! 😀 Oh, I love coffee so much! It’s make my day complete and without it, I just seem to be like a zombie wandering around – it’s the caffeine effect. 🙂 Internet? Oh I think I spend half of the day with it?

    • 3.February.2011 11:47 pm

      Hi Leianne! That’s awesome. Coffee is such a wonderful drink. And don’t get me started with the Net. 😀

      Thanks for dropping by, liking, and commenting! 🙂
