Work, Jobfair, Birthday

Gone are the petiks days in the office.

We’re now reaping the results of the Recruitment Strategic Planning we had two weeks ago. We now have to qualify more applicants for CSA. We now have to use a kilometric more detailed spiel. We now have to strictly follow the EOP. Aaaaand, we now have to follow the break scheds.

I have no qualms qualifying more applicants since I am already used to beating the quota. The new spiel is somewhat a piece of work but I’ve observed that it’s getting more positive reactions from the applicants than the old one, so I’m cool with it. I welcome EOP because I’ve noticed that I’m not using English a lot lately and I’m deathly afraid that I might turn into a common second language idiot if I don’t practice it. The strict compliance to break scheds is the only thing I’m not so crazy about. I’ve never been asked to limit my yosi time and lamon time until now, hence now I’m compelled to smoke less and eat less. So brightside, check!

For the past few days, I’ve been feeling the pressure of work at least two hours before I head home. I’m just fortunate that the new policies came with buffers: company premium items and a big ass P.I.

P.I. = Pay Increase

Yeah, yeah. Money motivates me.

And another thing! I hope the project-proposal I submitted gets approved soon. I can’t wait to take my career fulfillment up another notch!

Speaking of career, Eperformax is having a Career-Cafe-2-Go in three MRT Stations. We have booths in Ayala, Cubao, and Shaw. So drop by today, tomorrow, or on Monday.We’ll give you free coffee and an opportunity to secure a job (and career) in our company.

And to that person who asked me if it is true that an agent can earn as high as P32,000 per month… the answer is yes. For more information, call 490-2088. That’s our recruitment hotline. Look for me. My name is Iya, I-Y-A. (Hehe spiel na spiel!) I don’t want to discuss technicalities here. :p Oh, and I think I’ll be conducting interviews in our booth at the MRT Shaw station tomorrow. Visit me!

Anyhoodles, another change I have to suck up and deal with is having to be in the office on or before 10am. For the meantime, we can’t adjust our scheds to 11-8 or 12-9. Sad, sad.

And for that, I gotta get me some shuteye, but not before I greet that special someone whose birthday is today.

So to that person dear to me, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Yessssss. Happy birthday to you, Carla!


Carla’s special to me. She was the one who conducted the Job Offer when I applied at Eperformax.

Fine, fine.

It’s also JA’s birthday today.

And I have nothing else to say, except I LOVE S……………………

Para sa Babaeng Marahil ay Galit sa Akin / Part 1

Alam kong hindi maganda ang tingin mo sa akin.
Marahil iniisip mo, saksakan ng sama ang ugali ko,
na bilang kapwa mo babae hindi ko man lang inisip ang mararamdaman mo.
Hindi kita masisisi,
pero hindi rin ako hihingi ng tawad.

Naiintindihan kita sa isang banda.
Alam kong nasaktan ka o nasasaktan ka pa rin.
Gusto ko lang malaman mo na hindi ka nag-iisa.
Dahil ngayon, sa sakit na nararamdaman ko,
para akong pinapatay.

Support Group

Naaalala mo pa ba ‘yung ad dati ng Tanduay?
‘Yung nakatikim ka na ba ng kinse anyos?
Ang sagwa di’ba? Eh pa’no kung ang Gran Matador gumawa rin ng ad?
Nakatikim ka na ba ng GranMa?
Ewwwww di’ba?

GranMa and The Chasers… Haha!

Wheee! I love weeknight drinking sessions! Donnie and I went to Mickey’s to (try to) finish the remnants of his bday celeb. Workalcoholic kasi ako eh. Hahaha! We were joined by our longlost friend Matt. Matt is Mickey’s neighbor, our LSS colleague, eand my fellow iskolar ng bayan.

Iskang Iya and Iskong Matthew

Reminisced about highschool adventures and misadventures (Mickey, Donnie and I = Bene, Matt – Zobel), discussed the facets of advertising (actually sila lang kasi ako lang naiiba ang trabaho), and talked about old school tv programs and games (Bioman weapons, Annie of Shaider’s porn video, Magic Cards blah blah blah).


Mel and Sisha

I had a self-imposed curfew, told myself I should be home by 12mn, but I broke it just because I was having too much fun. I got home around 3. I’m looking forward to spending more time with them– espacially next week.

They are my new found support group. :p



listening to: Side A – Forevermore

O kay hirap…

Mahirap sabihin ang SORRY.

Mahirap ding sabihin ang MAHAL KITA.

Mas mahirap pang sabihin ang ‘WAG MO KONG IWAN.

Pero nalaman kong ang pinakamahirap sabihin ay…


Try mo. Hirap, di’ba?


listening to: the productive noise of the 7th floor


Much as I don’t want to be angsty, forlorn, or downright pitiful, there are just some entities (e.g. a fukktard ex, broken promises, fabricated stories) continuously challenging my cheerful disposition. Mwehe.

Props to my friends who continuously transform my frown upsidedown.

😦 —-> 🙂


Saturday shift with Aiko Melendez… este Mommy Joyce pala. 


Mickey’s house with Patchu and Eunice (taking pic)



With my crushie slash busmate back in highschool, Mickey :p


Drinking 50-50 with Kram and Yo at N-Lo’s


Waiting for the next pitcher… Marlon, Yo, Me, and KC

I don’t want to get mad. I don’t even want to get even.  I just want to drink and be merry! Thank heavens for friends!


listening to: Mary J Blige – Fine


Eunice finally remembers when I first introduced her to him. She remembers him as the guy who went up to us when we were having coffee in ATC. She remembers him as the guy who said something witty about his career. She remembers him as the guy who asked me out several times for a date almost five years ago.

All I remember is me not being interested that time.

All I know now is, SAYANG.

Vday 2K8

Kung kelan pa UP Centennial, ngayon pa ako hindi nakapunta sa fair. Hmpf. From 2003-2007 kasi, lahat ng Vdays, andun ako sa Peyups nakikipagsalamuha sa mga sosyal, sa mga normal, at sa mga orcs sa pakikinig sa mga banda, paglalaro sa perya at pagikot-ikot sa Sunken Garden.

Wala lang kasi ako sa mood ngayon na makigulo sa sobrang daming tao. Kaya imbis na pumunta sa UP Fair o  sa Valle Verde (d&d with crushie and his friends), dumerecho na lang ako kina Jap para sa Un-Valentine’s get-together namin with Donnie.

Un-Valentine’s? Ano raw? Ito ang bitter-bitteran celebration naming Triad Bestfriendships na may mga steps na:

1. Magkita-kita sa bahay ng pinaka-cynical na tao pagdating sa pag-ibig. Saan pa? Eh ‘di kina Jap.


2. Maghanda ng weird food combination to symbolize a weird friendship. Halimbawa: inihaw na bangus, chocolate cake at quail egg soup.

3. Kasiguraduhin na romantic ang setting. Maglagay ng roses sa lahat ng plurera. Maglagay ng kandila sa kwarto. Sa lamesa, sa sahig, sa carpet, sa silya… maraming-marami!Mag-ingat nga lang na hindi makasunog ng bahay ng may bahay.

4. Gawing photo-op ang sitwasyon. Gamiting props ang long-stemmed pink rose at gigantic Toblerone at Crunch na natanggap. (“,)


5. Magkantahan hanggang mapaos. Sipain sa mukha ang pipili ng love song. Tadyakan sa dibdib ang kakanta ng makadurog puso na kanta.

At ang pinaka-importanteng step…

6. Abangan ang pagsapit ng alas-dose. Mag-cheers sa pagsapit ng February 15. Magsaya dahil sa wakas, tapos na rin ang Valentine’s!


listening to: Wheatus – Little Respect

In the spirit of Valentine’s…

I have a song for you. Sing this to the tune of Maybe This Time by Michael Murphy.

Two old friends… friends pa rin… 

Two old sweethearts… friends na lang…
