Punyemas is the Word of the Day

My eyes are so bad right now, I needed to use a digital camera to take a macro shot of a pill I took last night just to see the dosage printed on it.

So there. I was desperate. My need for sleep was unquestionable. I took 2 capsules of this and 10 minutes later I was like swimming in jello. No, not the good kind. And the feeling was worse than an LSS of "Nakaligo ka na ba sa dagat ng basura...." It did knock me out for a while. But my brian just wouldn't turn off. Nakakahilo na hindi ko maintindihan, as my Mom would say. I kept on getting up then go back to bed every now and then. For a minute I thought I was going to die so I unlocked my door para my Mom and Dad can retrieve my body in the morning without breaking down my oh so beautiful door. I left my lamp on and tried to sleep on my sofa. After 20 minutes, no success. So I went back to my bed and started a conversation with myself. I must have bored myself to death because I actually dozed off. I woke up 5 hours later, and still very groggy. I still went to work, but everyone looked like sea monkeys to me. And I think I was extra sungit to my driver. The medicine probably worn off mid afternoon because by then, I was able to drive myself to ATC for an afternoon nuu-nee-nuu-nee time.

Mental note to self: Hinay-hinay lang sa Benadryl. Hindi yan bato ni Darna.

Anyway, I have this cough for 3 days now. It's dry and unproductive. So I also went to the village clinic to have myself checked. The Doc says I have dry cough. And she won't give me antibiotics because I don't have the phlem (flem? Plem? Phlemh?) yet. So until then, I'm taking Loratidine and this other medicine that sounds like a German porn star (hanapin sa Facebook DALI!!!!).

Ay teka. I went to the clinic first pala BEFORE going to ATC.

See? SEE??? I'm sick talaga. Punyemas.

I'm thinking of something that can bore me to sleep (aside from talking to myself because I'm running out of topics) so I turn on the TV and guess what was on?

"Nakaligo ka na ba sa dagat ng basura...... chuva chuva chuuuuva..... chuva chuva chuuuuuuuva...."

Ding, Ang Bato!

I found this video through a posting on Facebook (And I'm so glad I can share this through youtube!). It's a great song. I love the lyrics and the melody. It's a big surprise to find out that it's from the Darna Musical produced in 2003 (which I never heard of!), and sung by the Villainess pa.

Tex Ordoñez, I'm a new fan!

We have great local musicals with applausible songs and actors. I'd like to start seeing more of these plays. If only I know a way on how to get updated with schedules of events.

Hand Written Email

My Mom never learned how to use the computer. She was suppose to. I even bought her a computer so she can personally email her sisters. But apparently she has better things to do.

"Mamamalengkepa ako."

"Matutulog pa ako."

"May kakausapin pa ako sa telepono."

"Magpapa-parlor pa ako!"

So I am, by default, her personal email typist.

Everytime she needs to send an email, she would write it on paper then give it to me to be typed and sent. She used to be so formal with her emails even if she's just writing to her sisters or friends.

"My Dear sister. Greetings! The weather is splendid right now. The sun is shining and the grass is green. Oh, dear sister, you should see this!"

I told her that it's ok be casual and to write in Filipino if she wants to. It would also save me time proof reading her emails! She now writes with a touch of realism -- just like how she talks to her sisters or friends face to face.

"Hoy Amelia yung Pond's Cold Cream ipadala mo kay Marilou. Babatukan ko siya kung makalimutan niya yan."

Lately, because of a minor rift between the 6 sisters -- and nobody wants to use the phone or the Magic Jack -- the email exchanges have been very often. Too often, it has become like a long chat session that has been separated by days. Anyway, I think my Mom needs a new personal assistant because I can't keep up with this utos-utos. It's stressing me out, I can't do my own work.

* sigh

I think I need a jar of Pond's Cold cream too.

Just Got Home

* Coffee with Hani
* Southmall with Hani
* Dinner in BF with Hani
* Hang out time with Christina and Donald

I'm sleeping late on a work night but at least I had an interesting afternoon. Now I'm still wide awake.

Once Upon a Time....

... I had a big brother who looked after me. Now, he's just a brother who happens to live 2 streets away.

Today's irony is that I'm bored but I still got a million things to do.

It's a Thingamajig

I bought this picture clip thingamajig from Dimension (249 pesos but I'm sure you can make something like this on my own -- I'm just lazy) last week and I only have 2 places where I can set it that has a smooth surface (a glass wall or a mirror) that I can stick the suction cups to. I decided to put it in my toilet -- and used pictures of myself taken by my Hani in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

I'm not so sure if it looks nice. But I don't think the suction cups going to last long anyway.

Gimme some Zzzzz's!

Inaatake nanaman ako ng insomnia. For 2 nights na. So I'm keeping this little bottle uncapped beside my bed.

I bought it from this aroma stall in ATC, in front of True Value. Ang chika, Lavender aids sleep and relaxation. I know I'm suppose to use it with a burner but that's too dangerous right now kung balak kong makatulog. So I'm leaving the bottle open. I can smell the scent na. I hope this works.

Puppy Dexter

10 years ago, he came to my life and became the jolly puppy that developed into part of my family somehow. It's unfortunate that I wasn't able to take puppy pictures. Digital cameras weren't popular yet that time. But I remember carrying him in my arms like a big baby. And he hated it. I admit, I wasn't a good puppy owner. I didn't take care of him very well. The maids and drivers took care of him most of the time. But he still saw me as the master he'd love to be with. I know he's a loyal dog. I always see his eagerness to see me whenever I take a peek at him. And I'm just glad that he was able to reach this far. He turned 10 last month. Now I'm trying to make up for the time I missed while he was growing up -- even if I'm always tired. Not very old compared to the other senior dogs. But he already has arthritis, warts and shortness of breath. He's an old dog. But he's still the same puppy.


Sinabi nang bawal diyan eh.

My days Went Zoom

Can you believe February's first week just ended? I didn't even enjoy my January! Work's keeping me occupied. I should pay more attention to my days. Keep awake, Felipe. Keep awake!!!


I hate toilets with messy floors caused by lazy men who can't pee right. I mean, how difficult is it to point your pototoy to the urinal and not to the floor?
