How’s everyone?!? Christmas day arrived and everyone was busy buying stuffs, holiday rush and etc... Now holiday break is over and everything should be back to normal, but I still have that holiday mania running into my veins…huh…I didn't feel the holiday break it just slipped and go, I maybe too busy. Though spending my Christmas with the people I care and spending the day celebrating it for the One who gives the reason why we have this so called Christmas - is worth everything..

And now it’s time to go back to work even though Christmas day is over it should still be celebrated everyday… And looking forward for the upcoming 2008…

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance!!!

One of our DnD Adventures...

on 0 comments Read Full Article

Another Ravenloft – at Barovia to be exact - adventure is what the party faced last evening of November 3. Our dungeon master ask the party where do we want to continue our adventure and the party decided to be do it in the Ravenloft II (Roots of Evil). We were successful in our last adventure at Ravenloft I by defeating Strahd Von Zarovich (16th level vampire – necomanser), though a lot of things change from the party since the last time we visit Barovia.

Let’s meet the party:

Raskha – 9th level evoker and 5th level Greyhound; Alignment: Neutral Good
Rival – 9th level Sunsoul and 5th level Monk; Alignment: Lawful Good
Roswitha – 9th level bard and 5th level Moonstar; Alignment: Neutral Good
MRIX – 5th level night of the blue moon, 3rd level Paladin and 2nd level Sorcerer; Alignment: Lawful Good

We started the adventure with Rashka’s spell of Group Teleportation and landed in front of Ravenloft’s Castle at Barovia. We can’t see anything but fog everywhere until we heard a word from Valdar the head of the guardians at that time, faced us at the castle’s gate. With the used of a magical item they knew that I’m (Roswitha) trying to use some spell to fascinate Valdar and so, everyone was ready to fight with the party. Until Queen Kristiana interrupted the guards and said “I knew you would come”, then allowed us to enter the castle, as we walked inside the castle a lot had change it was white and all clean with lights at every corner of the wall, it was totally different from the castle that we entered the last Ravenloft adventure. And so we faced King Barov and Queen Kristiana, Roswitha asked queen Kristiana about the welcome she said that “She knew we would come”, she said it was in prophecy. And to our surprise she knew a lot of things about us – everything about us - about the past adventure we did and what it had cause their land, we were accused as thief (that we are not – we are all good…hehehehe) by taking the Symbol of the Sun out of the castle. And removing the symbol from the castle give them a lot of trouble - the land was cursed – that we never though will happened, we though taking the symbol will the save land of Barovia. Until king Barov give us stories from the past:

“Barovia was a peaceful place lead by general Strahd Von Zarovich before something happened on the day of Serei and Tatian’s wedding everyone was gone, they said that General Strahd Von Zarovich gave his soul to evil God’s in exchange of his immortality. And so the land was cursed since then and only the symbol of the sun can save Barovia. And it was in the prophecy that we have to make the wrong things right and if not death is what awaits the party.“

With all the stories we heard and question was raised, the party then just realize that all the adventures we had in the last few weeks was all interconnected. Fighting Azalin the 18th level litch and defeating him was one of them, Azalin holds the Symbol of the Sun we weren’t able to get it from him but good thing we hold his phylactery. With the entire bad thing that happened unexpectedly we are giving 30 days to fulfill the quest of bringing back the symbol of the sun to the castle together with the great evil’s phylactery. If after 30 days we weren’t able to accomplish the quest then death awaits us. And yes, we all accepted the quest; finishing the barovia’s adventure and solving this adventure is the party’s main goal and it will if we bring the Symbol back to its right place.

And as before we end the conversation at the castle’s chapel Inajira – the 24th level demon (Arcanaloth Yugdoth) – arrived get King Barov and kill him everyone was stunned except from our party but only Raskha can react. Before we we’re able to defeat Inajira he summoned two Glabrezu and leave taking the Queen with him. To our surpire Strahd Von Zarovich was back running and fought with one of the Glabrezu and defeated it then leaves us with the other. But before we were able to defeat the 2nd Glabrezu mrix almost loose his life then Rival able to finish and killed him with his strength. We have to take a two hours nap to gain the power/strength we lost in the fight before continuing the adventure on finding the Symbol of the Sun or hunting Azalin.

With what happened in the castle and seeing Strahd again was all a mystery we have to find and solve. Everything that happened is still uncertain to us but our mission hasn’t change. Village Valaki is our next destination, to defeat Azalin and get the Symbol of the Sun…

This is how we play our game.

Beyonce Experience

I had no plan to go to her concert, first it was expensive and second I don't even know most of her songs but my sister and I love to see her because we really found her very sexy...hehehe... Unexpectedly one hour before the concert, a friend invited me to watch the concert for free since she had an extra ticket - that was worth P2,500...hehehehe... Had no camera, just my phone that was about to drain its battery - hahaha- thank God my phone was able to get some videos and pictures even though it was quite far. It was fun - I really enjoyed it!!! I don't really see her performing on TV but seeing her live was amazing she really grooves and sings well...hehehe...

Halloween @ AIG BPSI

on 0 comments Read Full Article

Halloween had past once again and Christmas is again coming near, but I did write to say about Christmas though. Hhhmmm.. Last November 2, 2007, the AIG BPSI had their Halloween Celebration, since my brother-in-law works there my sister and nephew is invited to attend the party. My sister asked me to accompany them at the party if I will be free since it’s a holiday I went with them but beside from the party I really wanted to visit AIG office since I haven’t been there and knowing it’s one of the good companies not just in the Philippines but also in US so I wanted to see their office. Hehehehe.. Anyway going back to the party, it wasn’t my first time to attend a treat or trick but I really enjoyed the night. Children with their Halloween costumes (even the employees), candies, chocolates, lollipops, mallows and a lot more is what we’ve got from different people of the company. We were able to visit every floor of their building and got their treats and saw their Halloween decorations per department, and even went to the office of their president. Since MRIX (my nephew) is only one year and two months he’s not yet allowed to eat candies, so my sister and I enjoyed all the treats we’ve got from the Halloween celebration.

Mrix playing some of his lollipops.

Barangay Election

on 0 comments Read Full Article

Last October 29, 2007 the government schedule it a holiday to give way for the Barangay election. It’s been a while since the last barangay election happened; if I could remember it right that as last 2002 almost 5 years ago. Anyhow, I could not compare anything from this recent election to the other elections in past since nothing had change. It was still the same that I saw since the first time I practice my right on voting. There are still a lot of people at lost since they can’t see their name in the list even though they used to vote every election. The counting that took almost midnight before fishing the counting, I know the feeling because I once experience being a PPCRV representative in one of the .elections that I attended. It wasn’t easy but it was really hard. My only question in mind is that: when will the Philippine election be improve or will it be forever like the old times?!?

This is how it looks like outside the school.

One Paradise

on 0 comments Read Full Article

I had a 3-day (21-23 Oct, 2007) vacation at Boracay--a team-building event my colleagues planned. We were fortunate to had the date planned at the same time Cebu Pacific launched their promo--We would have a chance to visit kuya Bong as well. We could hardly contain our excitement. We were already counting the days until the 21st came. This will be my first time to ride a plane to Boracay.

And so the day has come. I had my first flight at Philippine Airlines Flight PR321 Departure: 9:25am. Arrive at Kalibo around 10:05am and ride a van going to jetty port took us almost 2 hrs on the road. Then rode a “bangka” -bigger than the usual of course- for almost 15 minutes and yes, you could feel the breeze of the boracay beach while in the boat. And after that we have our last ride going to the hotel, we rode a tricycle. The weather is so hot when we arrive boracay, even thought its rainy season since its October… The weather indeed agreed with us and that made us enjoy our entire stay, although there will be rain drops early in the morning and at night.

Boracay – Paradise! That is how people always describe the place. The moment I stepped my feet on the ground of boracay, I question out why do people say this place is a paradise? I'm quite frustrated with what I saw. It wasn't the picture I have in my mind. The picture I have in mind was a very organize place in terms of hotel and restaurants’, but it wasn’t. But as I stay longer in the place I started to see the reason why this place becomes a paradise. Saw different fish when we snorkeled right in front of my face swimming was really amazing and relaxing. Feeling the breeze of the sea and seeing the entire island was awesome...On my day two I almost stayed on the beach from 8am till 3pm together with my cousin and my brother’s girlfriend - ate caren. And yes, sunburn is what we’ve got afterwards but being in the beach for the whole time worth the sunburn.

The beach and its fine sand really made the place a paradise. That will keep everyone come back…When our time to leave the place came, there was a thought that comes my mind and never leave up to know…”I want to return in this place and stay longer! Goodbye for now bora…”.

My First Plane Adventure

on 0 comments Read Full Article

It always gives us a high level of excitement doing things for the first time. Just last Sunday at exactly 9:25am, I had my first ever plane ride…PAL Flight PR321; Manila-Kalibo. I always had a lot of question in my mind on: how was the feeling when the plane is taking off and how does it feel when you’re up there seeing the ground from the top. I got all the answer to those question I have in my mind -- "It was awesome!". The plane taking off and having its landing was just some of the best part on riding a plane. Wwooohhoooo… Seeing the clouds right into your face is another awesome experience. I felt no fear but a lot of excitement. When I entered the plane, I was level 0 then, but when I went down the Kalibo airport expi points gained, and I’m now level 2 in my “plane adventure”.

‘Till I see you again, PAL!

Missing the Old Days

on 1 comments Read Full Article

I’ve been out of school almost one year and half and things I usually do back then are what I truly miss. I missed the days when there will be no professor and we’ll have almost 2 hrs chatting and talking about anything. It likes sharing your entire life – values, wishes, dreams and goals - to your seat mates and they’ll share theirs too. And doing this almost everyday, you’ll end up knowing you each other completely and that’s when we realize we are gaining friends.

I might miss a lot of things being a student but I can’t deny the fact that I missing the people I learned to love in my college life. It wasn’t always good things but there are a lot of bad things that happened, that made the friendship a lot deeper. I miss everything, everyone I used to be with everyday - the endless conversations, arguments, and laughter - is what I truly miss.

I’m not a movie lover but I want to share the movies I get to love… Let’s take a look some of them…

>> Why Count of Monte Cristo? I haven’t read the book of this movie though, but I almost memorize the lines of this movie - I think I watched it 7 times or more, I’m really sure…hehehe…Anyway, there are two things that made me love the movie so much, one; is the dress that they have in the plot of the story, it was very glamorous!! How I wished I had my life in that era. Hahaha… And lastly it’s more about learning the lesson of vengeance. The vengeance that we will never have in our hands; it’s always in the hand of the Creator.

>>Many people doesn’t enjoy a musical movie neither I because of the connotation that musical movies are boring, but there are always an exception. I never thought that I’ll enjoy watching The Phantom of the Opera, maybe because of the kind of outfit again? hehehe… But more than the dresses, it’s the voices that really capture my full attention and made me smile and touched my heart in listening to them while talking to each other in a form of song. By just hearing to their songs of conversation you could feel every single emotion they are portraying. The anger of Phantom, the love that Christine and Joshua have, all of this was felt in the entire movie of songs.

>>Justice, loyalty and love are the values that we can see in this movie, The Rock. Justice – asking justice for those who need it, doesn’t give us the right of putting it in our hands and start hurting innocent people. Loyalty – your loyalty doesn’t end in your boss but more that is on the people that truly serve – the one that you live your life for. And Love – that even if the people around you did something wrong on you or on the people you love and cherish, still it’s not worth hurting them.

Count of Monte Cristo, Phantom of the Opera, and The Rock, are the movies that capture my heart and made fall in love in their stories,… These are some of my favorite movie that I'll never get tired watching. Most of them (if not all of them) are movies that show a realistic view of life – I guess. The sad thing about this is that I never got the chance of watching them in the big screen… And I’ll never know about these movies if not because of my brother-in-law’s recommendation – plus my sister (riza) of course. Hahaha…Thanks to both of them!!

Blog \ˈblȯg, ˈbläg\
intr. v. [(we)blog)

Many of us think we know what it is all about—an online diary. Yes, most of us think it is a documentation of the events (all or just moments which we wish to take note of) that happened in our lives—updated daily or whenever we feel like it.

Experts' definition is “to write entries in, add material to, or maintain an online personal space or web site.” There is more to blogging than what most users think. This is what I wish to endeavor—to impart, not my daily activities, but my raves, my rants, my commentaries, my reflections, my recommendations. Ultimately, to awaken the writer within me that I think has been in slumber for quite a while.

A blogging virgin now, Virgin no more!

Welcome to this world, friend .
