The Three Question Personality Test

Your Personality Is

Rational (NT)

You are both logical and creative. You are full of ideas.

You are so rational that you analyze everything. This drives people a little crazy!

Intelligence is important to you. You always like to be around smart people.

In fact, you're often a little short with people who don't impress you mentally.

You seem distant to some - but it's usually because you're deep in thought.

Those who understand you best are fellow Rationals.

In love, you tend to approach things with logic. You seek a compatible mate - who is also very intelligent.

At work, you tend to gravitate toward idea building careers - like programming, medicine, or academia.

With others, you are very honest and direct. People often can't take your criticism well.

As far as your looks go, you're coasting on what you were born with. You think fashion is silly.

On weekends, you spend most of your time thinking, experimenting with new ideas, or learning new things.

A Change of Heart?

I am finally starting to like my work at HP minus the long hours of work though I think I am getting the hang of it. I still don't like going home late but as they say no pain, no gain. I think for me to be able to survive this, i just have to look at the good side of it. And I'm glad that I am slowly seeing the beauty in this adversity.

BUT........ I am a girl and I have the privilege to change my mind in a blink of an eye. Let's just say for now, I am liking working at HP. Tomorrow, it might be a different story. Hehehe!

After 10 Years....

Na-upload ko din!!!Just click the pic above if you can't get enough... Enjoy!

Horton Movie | LCD TV | Fish Spa | Others

Last Saturday, Jay-ar & I did 3 things.

First, we watched this...

For me, it is a funny movie. The kid in me enjoyed it. Actually at first, I was pursuading Jay-ar to watch the Spiderwick Chronicles instead. But the little boy Jay-ar really wanted to watch this movie so there. No regrets though because we both enjoyed the movie. Maybe we'll watch the Spiderwick some other time.

By the way, the moral of the story is, a person's a person, no matter how small... I think this goes to people like Mahal and Mura. Just kidding.

The second one is my favorite, we bought this!!!
32" Panasonic Viera LCD TV... Sobrang ginaganahan kami ni Jay-ar mag watch ng movies, series and other downloaded stuff. Both of us are sooo thrilled with our new TV. It is now placed perfectly in our bedroom...

And lastly, we tried the Fish Spa and I have two words for it -- SOBRANG NAKAKAKILITI!

The treatment lasted for 30 minutes and my feet only get used to it I think after 15 minutes. The fishes mob and feasted over our feet. It was like they didn't eat for year! I tell you, it tickled sooo badly and that tickling sensation lasted for 15 minutes! As in OMG. I wanted to take out my feet off the water. But if I do that then I will just throw away my RM38 payment so I kept my cool and finished the treatment. But then as I've mentioned, after 15 mins, I started enjoying the whole thing. It was a new experience and overall, I liked it despite the tickling sensation.

Below are the video clips we took during the Fish Spa treatment.

Ang here's the other one.

On the other news.

Yesterday was my 1st monthsary in HP. Woohooo! I survived my first month! Hehehe! My PM told me that these coming weeks will be hectic for us. Tomorrow is a holiday but we need to report to work. Darn it! Anyway, I can offset my overtime work but I don't think I can use it in the near future. I just wish, hope and pray that I can learn our new system ASAP and that all the workaholic people will go to hell. Hahaha!

Today is the last day of my BEA Weblogic Integration training. It started last Thursday and to be honest, I didn't find the training to be a big help for me. Simply because I have no experience using this tool so whatever the trainor was saying, I just had to accept it as it is. Unlike if I have a first hand experience using the tool, then I can relate to the things the trainor said and I can even question her and ask questions based on actual experience. I am more interested in learning all those integration tools in the real working environment than in a classroom. For me, there were only 4 good things about the training.

1. I became familiar & comfortable with BEA Workshop's GUI [This is not a big deal though as the BEA Workshop adapted the look and feel of Eclipse IDE and I have been using Eclipse before.]
2. For 5 days I reported to HP office, which is just near my place and more accessible place than our client's office location.
3. Free snacks and lunch thus no need to prepare my own lunch
4. I get to go back home early. Average is 6 pm. I now consider 6 pm early even if it is really the end of working hours!

After today, I will start to report for work again to TPM and will go back home late again! In tagalog, "tapos na maliligayang araw ko!"... Sadness.


I want to congratulate my sister Yeng for her new job in Honda! I know you will be successful in your career. Break a leg sister! Mwah! I love you!

Last night, i thought of doing some experiment for our dinner. I dunno the name of this dish since it is just an "experiment" of my creative mind. Hehehe!

Jay-ar and I both liked it. I dunno if it looks delicious in this pic but I tell you, it was delicious!

Ingridients are as follows: String beans, eggplant, carrots, buttom mushroom, onion, garlic, potato, ginisa flavor mix, oyster sauce, salt and pepper to taste. This is perfect with fried fish!

That's all for now. Jay-ar & I will be watching Jumper tonight on our new LCD TV. Hehehe! Hanggang sa muli!

Wala Lang...

Hello World! I survived another week at HP! Nakaka 3 weeks na ko. Hay, hanggang kelan ko kaya sya kayang tagalan. Hehehe! Well, let's just say, i'm pushing myself to the limit. So if I give up, malamang hanggang dun na lang tlaga ko. Pero kakayanin hanggat kaya.

On a happy note, i got my first pay from HP. Yahooo.... sino gusto ng libre? Wala... Tsk tsk tsk.. sayang naman.. hehehe!

This weekend, we plan to watch 10000 BC and eat @ steam boat and try the fish spa [thanks to cielo and arrie for the vouchers!]. Excited na ko try yang fish spa na yan. Hehehe!

Ayun lang, nothing to write about naman tlaga except sa ang super workaholic ng mga teammates ko! Grabe! Hehehe! Yun lang... Babush!

Weekend Getaway @ SG

Hey everyone, I'm back here in KL. Isang araw lang kami nag stay ni Jay-ar sa SG. Hehehe! Anyway, here's the recap of our weekend getaway in SG.

As I mentioned in my previous post, the bus going to SG left KL around 11:30 pm. So that means ang tatak sa passport ko na exit from MY is March 1 na instead of Feb 29. At first, nag worry ako kasi dapat ang exit ko tlaga sa MY is Feb. 29 since hanggang dun na lang valid ang employment pass ko. Pero when I was in the KL immigration, nde naman nagkaron ng problem. Tinatakan lang ng immigration officer ng March 1 yung passport ko pero wala naman sya sinabi and no questions asked. So I was really relieved. Usually, the trip from KL to SG and vice-versa is about 5 hours. Kasama na ang mga stopovers. Pero depende pa din sa lagay ng traffic. 5 hours kapag walang traffic jam.

So we arrived @ SG around 4:30 tapos nakarating kami dun sa service apartment ng agent ko mga 5 am. We just ate a little & slept for a while then around 11:00 am, we went to our fave resto ni Jay-ar sa SG. None other than, No Sign Board! Hehe. We ate our fave Chilli Crab! The best tlaga. Un lang order namin kasi super laki ng serving nun. Good for 5-6 people ang serving. Yun na ang pinaka maliit nila na crab. And only for that order, we paid S$50. O diba, nde sya cheap. Pero pramis, ang sarap nya tlaga. Sulit na sulit. Since ang dami nung serving nya, nag start kami ni Jay-ar kumain ng 12 pm at natapos kami ng 3 pm na. Hahaha! Busog tlaga!

After nun, we went to Queensway Shopping Center. I bought a new flip flop slippers. Look at my new cutie Ipanema slippers.

After Queensway, we went to China Town. Hindi pa kasi namin nakikita ang China Town ng Singapore kaya yun ang next stop namin. Natuwa ako sa China Town ng SG kasi ang linis linis. Hehehe! Ang China Town kasi ng Malaysia parang Divisoria/Tutuban sa Pinas na lumamang lang ng konti. Hehe! Dito sa SG, para syang mini tiangge tapos ang linis & ang ganda ng place. Pero mas maliit sya kesa sa China Town ng Malaysia. Chaka mas maraming mabibili sa MY lalo na pag gabi. Kasi dun nag start mag bukas yung karamihan ng stores sa China Town ng MY. Nde ko nga alam kung bat mas buhay yung lugar na yun pag gabi e.

Si Jay-ar, umiral na naman ang pagiging isip bata. Hehe! Nakakita ng dirty ice cream tapos bilan ko daw sya. Ang hindi ko alam, bukod sa ice cream, may free show pa pala si mamang dirty ice cream vendor. I was surprised kasi papahawakan nya sakin yung ice cream tapos bigla nyang kukunin tapos papahawakan nya ulit tapos kukunin nya ulit. As in yung pag kuha nya pa sa ice cream yung tipo parang mala-laglag. Na-video nga ni Jay-ar yung napasigaw ako kasi akala ko tlaga malalaglag yung ice cream, e ang mahal nya pa naman para sa dirty ice cream [S$3 = Ps84]. O diba?! Yan ang pinaka mahal na dirty ice cream na natikman ko. Hehehe! Pero in fairness, masarap naman. Hehehe! Sabi ni Jay-ar, meron din daw ganun sa KL. Yung dirty ice cream din plus a little bit of show bago ibigay sayu yung ice cream pero nde ko pa na-try yun dito sa KL. First experience ko sya sa SG kaya nung una, nag tataka tlaga ko kung anu ginagawa nung ice cream vendor. Hehe!

After China Town, we went to Admiralty to meet some friends of Jay-ar. We went back to the apartment around 12 mn na. We almost forgot about the time when we were in Admiralty kaya muntik na kami masaran ng LRT. Buti na lang umabot kami. Kundi mamumulubi kami ni Jay-ar. Ang mahal mahal pa man din ng taxi sa SG. Well, mahal naman lahat sa SG.

The next day @ 10 am, we went to Lavender where the bus was waiting for us, ready to depart to KL. Okay lang sana ang trip namin pabalik sa KL kaya lang may mamang anaps na umupo sa likod namin na SOBRA as in sobrang baho tlaga. Buti na lang nde puno yung bus so nakalipat kami ng upuan ni Jay-ar. Mejo amoy pa din sya dun sa nilipatan namin pero at least nde kami malapit sa kanya. Kundi baka dumikit samin ang amoy nya. Hehehe! Grabe tlaga! Nakarating kami dito sa condo around 5 pm na. Mas mahaba ang byahe namin pabalik ng 2 hours kasi ang daming stopovers ng bus chaka mejo mabagal magpatakbo ng bus yung driver.
Overall, we had fun on this trip. Nakakapagod nga lang but Jay-ar & I enjoyed it.

That's all for now. For more pics, you know the drill... Goodnight!
