subic

I remember watching a couple of episodes of a TV show (local) which featured Subic Bay and the sex lives of the people who either stayed there or were just passing by. It's certainly something to consider -- a very nice place like subic, the beautiful people who go there, and the very easy atmosphere surrounding the place.

I spent the weekend at Subic bay on an EB I went to -- an EB with a real activity in mind. It was an Amazing Race style tour around the base without having to spend money to get from one place to another using just your charms and wits. It was a definite blast, especially since my partner and I won the race -- of course, it has its fair share of drama and end-game excitement boiling down to the recital of the english alphabet reversed.

So there I was in subic bay, surrounded by the scenery, the beautiful ladies, and the booze. First time in my life that I had a real body shot. Others before that didn't count. Wasn't all that spectacular, but it was a real body shot.

What happens when you have a handful of people who just get to discuss things online with each other with -- whom you barely know -- and booze all around? Well, what happens is certainly something you can call fun. That's something you can enjoy for a very long time -- getting to know each other, getting to know yourself through other people, and knowing a lot more about the world with them.

A definition of an EB (eye ball) has changed -- now when I say EB, I don't just think of meeting someone and saying "hi", or "hello", but it's saying "hi" and "hello" with fun and happiness in your heart. I've been to other EB's before, but none was as fun as what I had been on a couple of days ago. Definitely one for keeps.

CHill...

(Hi kay sweet, kay partner barenaked, and others also in the race -- hope to see you all again soon) :D

Appreciating Rizal...

Nope, this is not an academic post. More of a reflective and wrote-because-i-was-enlightened type post. Anyway, I just passed a paper on Rizal's notion of a nation according to Quibuyen (a local writer who devoted a book -- A Nation Aborted -- on his treatise on Rizal). Chapter 6 was an interesting read, and a definite eye opener. Rizal all of a sudden became interesting, especially to someone like me who could care less. It seems that most of what Rizal aims for and wrote about is still evident in today's Philippines as I see it. I wonder why I didn't get to appreciate Rizal and his work when I was still in high school -- might be the fault of the high school and the curriculum, or might be because I was still considerably immature then. I wasn't able to understand most of Rizal's writings though even if I got to reading them basically because they translated from Spanish to Filipino/Tagalog. I don't have problems with Tagalog, until you put it in writing. I

So much for that...

I just came home from the seminar regarding my proposed load balancing algorithm. I tried to get as candid as I can, but still half of what I said was jargon -- which made me explain the thing in layman's terms and using more colloquial examples. I was wearing a black suit, (chinese collared americana suit that is), gray slacks, black leather belt (perry ellis), and leather shoes (by bristol). I'm beginning to sound like a caption to a fashion mag's pic, but I digress... So there I was, waiting for the seminar to start. As a speaker, I conducted myself properly and tried to get things cleared out with my co-presentors. I was asuuming that they knew at least half of what they were supposed to talk about, and that they knew how to speak in front of a crowd. BUT NO... I sat through two presentors, the first one reading the presentation of the projection, and then doing no explaining whatsoever. I didn't get that because she prepared her own slides, and prepared the hand

Reconnecting with people

2021 started with a a good sense of connection for me, having spent time with friends and family in a simple celebration of the oncoming year. The transition from 2020 to 2021 and being able to look back at a good part of my recent history got me thinking about how life has been for me and the family for the past decade. There’ve been a lot of people that I’ve met and become friends with while there are those that I’ve left behind and lost touch with. There’s a saying about treating old friends different from new ones, which I do appreciate now that I’m a bit older. It also means that my relationships with people that I get to spend a good amount of time with take a different shape. This reflection has given me some time and space to think about what it means to reconnect with people. Friends are the family we choose ourselves. — Edna Buchman I have the privilege of having life-long friends that I don’t always stay in regular contact with. From my perspective, if I consider you a frien
