I took this quiz around a week ago and I think the results speak for their selves.

Your view on yourself:

You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

* I don’t think this is REALLY that accurate, but it’s a good description and I’m not complaining!

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.

* Okaaaaaaay.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

* I’m not sure about this but it’s highly probable because I already have the idea of the right person for a long time now.

The seriousness of your love:

You like to flirt and behave seductively. The opposite sex finds this very attractive, and that’s why you’ll always have admirers hanging off your arms. But how serious are you about choosing someone to be in a relationship with?

* I think this isn’t true at all. I have no idea how to flirt! And I’m irritatingly serious! Hahaha

Your views on education

Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can.

* Yes! But right now, I really wanna find a good job.

The right job for you:

You’re a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you’ll be set for life.

* Yes, because money makes the world go round. *drools*

How do you view success:

You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying.

* Oh I wish!

What are you most afraid of:

You are afraid of having no one to rely on in times of trouble. You don’t ever want to be unable to take care of yourself. Independence is important to you.

* Somehow, it sorts of put in place whether I’m independent or not. This thing has bothered me for a while because I don’t wanna be helped unless it’s a household chore. LOL. Seriously, I feel BETTER when I’m the one helping other people.

Who is your true self:

You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long.

* Yes I have mood swings but my good friends (?) say I’m very predictable. And yes, I’m irritatingly energetic but sometimes, the confidence betrays me. =P

because it’s not real May 25, 2009

Posted by putomaia in Addiction, Family Feud, Jitters, Random Rambling.

My mom and I stayed up until 2am watching Boys Over Flowers. Yes now I know where I got these easily addicted genes. We wanted to finish everything ’til the lastest last episode (Ep 25). But when we got to the middle of Ep 22, we were just too sleepy to proceed.

I didn’t know that early this morning, after getting what, 6 hours of sleep, my said mom would wake me up, asking me to turn the PC on so we could continue watching. I yelled, “Adik!” She said, “Okay, we won’t watch this morning, but we won’t watch anymore ha.” So I hurriedly turned the PC on.

We finished watching by 12: 30 nn. And our eyes were red, hehe. Watching BOF is such an exercise for the heart. And I love the ending. It so does NOT deserve a part 2. So I guess this marks the end of my Boys Over Flowers fangirl-ship huh? Uhm, I guess not because while I’m writing this, I’m listening to the entire soundtrack over and over again. Even if I don’t understand Korean.

And ooh, did I tell you that I suddenly found Yoon Ji Hoo hot? Maybe it’s because of his shorter hair, or his piercings, or maybe because he stopped playing the violin, or maybe because he began to have a personality. Hehe, peace. I just found his character at first soo boring.

Okay, after we finished watching, we cleaned the house. Talk about getting back into reality. Because we were not anymore Geum Jan Di. And we weren’t friends with F4 anymore. And we were not Korean. And because life, in reality, didn’t have a soundtrack.

because the air has a nostalgic feel May 24, 2009

Posted by putomaia in Jitters, Private Me.

Wait, I’m officially a KPop listener. Damn you Boys Over Flowers OST. Oh no. I mean, how on earth can I get LSS from songs I don’t even understand, much less sing? I think I’ve had enough of watching romantic comedies. There was NEVER a romcom film that I’ve watched where I didn’t want to be the heroine. Hindi yung drugs gagu. Because somehow, I’ve never really become the heroine of my own story. Pare, deep.

Anyway. I dunno what happened but I suddenly thought of unrequited love. I could WRITE a book about unrequited love. I could TALK to you all night about unrequited love. But I couldn’t. Because it opposes my image. In my circle, I’m the one who just cracks jokes when the topic goes serious. Because I can’t talk serious. Because I get a rash whenever I talk love. I remember my roommates back then. I was the ate in our room and we were talking one night and the topic predictably went to lablayp. Because we weren’t really that close, I decided to give it a try and talk about mine. And they like stared at me with blank eyes. As if they couldn’t believe it was me talking.

I can count with one hand my friends whom I can talk about this kinda stuff. And believe me, this happens maybe once in every four months? Well, most of the time, my mouth is full of shit about Ely Buendia, Jerry Yan (hahaha), Oguri Shun, Show Luo, Lee Min Ho, Kim Bum (woah it suddenly occurred to me how I like Asian boyz) etc. but that’s pretty much it. No depth.

I am suddenly reminded of how single I am. I NEVER had a REAL boyfriend. I suddenly remember falling in hardcore puppy love at the tender age of eight. And how that boy and I could not talk to each other until seven years later. Oh and he had three girlfriends during that span of time.

I suddenly remember my first true love. I remember telling our story to my friends and how we all got kilig over it, and how I believed we were soulmates because of all the things that had happened. Well, back then, it was not that hard to believe. (Eheads’ Hard to Believe fades in). I remember how we were REALLY smitten for a year maybe and when I finally mustered all the courage I could get to tell him that I love(d) him, he already realized that he loved his bestfriend.

I remember one of the BEST friends I ever had who confessed his feelings to me. I had to turn him down because my bestfriend had feelings for him AND I was simply too much in love with his good friend (pls refer to previous paragraph). By the time I realized that I can love him, he already met the right girl for him.

And lastly, I remember how I met the man of my dreams in college. He is the Ely Buendia to my Diane Ventura, the Chuck Bass to my Blair Waldorf, the Shinichi Kudo to my Ran Mori, the Goo Joon Pyo to my Geum Jan Di, but it simply couldn’t be.

So here I am, a few weeks away from being nineteen, still pathetically unrequited.

this is addict speaking May 22, 2009

Posted by putomaia in Addiction, Chick Flick, Random Rambling.

This is it. I am now officially and irrevocably (why does it sound a bit Twilight- ish?) addicted to Boys Over Flowers (or Boys Before Flowers). OMG!!! (Fan girl mode.)

I have to say that I owe a lot to Rarejob. If I haven’t been sanctioned this month, I wouldn’t have been able to watch the series. Actually, I never got to watch it on TV when it started airing because of my work. Last Saturday, blessed be ABS CBN, they had a rerun of the encore week of the show.

And so I watched it. I did not expect it to be good, due to the success of Meteor Garden, but shiet, I was immediately hooked. I mean, Meteor Garden might have been one, if not the biggest success of ABS CBN. But damn, one look from Lee Min Ho (who plays Goo Joon Pyo) and 19- year old Kim Bum (playing So Yi Jung) and I knew I found my latest addiction.

So last Tuesday, when my mom and I got bored, we decided to watch it online on MySoju. And the rest was history. We’re almost done with the series and we would have continued watching it if I did not have to work tonight.

At first, I thought watching a sappy sappy love story about people around my age WITH my mom would be a bit awkward. You see, we were never the ones to talk about love and all that jazz. Little did I know that my mom would be more kilig than me.

I’m just disappointed though because she likes the character of Yoon Ji Hoo, played by Kim Hyun Joong.

Okay, in comparison, the Taiwanese version Meteor Garden, aired in 2001, had more to say when it comes to cinematography. Meteor Garden, I think aimed for a theatrical appeal, while Boys Before/ Over Flowers aimed for realistic.

Though I’m still a fan of Jerry Yan, and while I could not help but swoon over Kim Bum, I can’t help but fall inlab with Lee Min Ho. See how cheap I am? Anyway, yeah, I love his curly hair.

On the other hand, I never got around watching the Japanese version, Hana Yori Dango even though Hazel’s DVD has been sitting around my shelf for about six months a’ready. I just couldn’t. You know why? Because I love Doumyoji Tsukasa/ Dao Ming Si/ Goo Joon Pyo’s character and I don’t like Jun Matsumoto. Tapos, I love Oguri Shun but unfortunately, he’s given the role of Hanazawa Rui (Hua Ze Lei/ Yoon Ji Hoo) whose character I don’t really dig. It’s complicated.

Basta, that’s it. Now that the Gossip Girl’s Season 2 has come to end and I would have to wait ’til August for the 3rd season, I am for now officially a Boys Over Flowers fan girl. I never imagined my mom and I could watch a subbed show until dawn. That’s kewl.

mass deletion May 17, 2009

Posted by putomaia in Chick Flick, Jitters, Random Rambling.

Just seen Juday and Ryan’s Wedding Special on the tube. It was fun at first; their wedding was so natural, people were actually cheering inside the church. They were a kalog couple. And it was so fun eating yogurt.

Segue: This is actually my first time to eat Apple Cinnamon yogurt because I don’t see it in GMall. I was able to buy it at Robinsons.

Anyway, I had to leave my mom alone to watch the special and go upstairs instead when things are going too sappy. I mean, sometimes I AM a hopeless romantic, not as much as my mom though, but whenever I see weddings, all I think about is how on earth I’d be able to beg convince Ely Buendia to sing for my own wedding. See how grounded I am? I’m not even asking him to marry me!

And now that I opened this blog again, I decided it’s high time for mass deletion. I think it’s quite ridiculous for your blog posts of the month to exceed the number of days of the month itself. And it’s just a little past halfway of May yet.

It feels so energizing to delete 12 blog posts. =)

another dream post May 17, 2009

Posted by putomaia in Dreams, Private Me.

Last night (or this morning) I proved that I dream in color.

The dream is not at all that vivid. All I know is that I was pissed off when my sister woke me up so early in the morning. Read: 10 am. So that’s how I’m sure that the dream occurred around dawn already.

I was still tossing and turning, trying hard NOT to wake up when a snippet of the dream came across my mind. I was with two people, I can’t remember who but I’m pretty sure I knew one of them. We were inside a little house and they made me eat a magic mangga. LOL.

Anyway, one of them (I’m sure I don’t know him) said that when I eat the fruit, I’d be dizzy and all the colors around me would fade to just white. (See? I do dream in color). He added that once everything around me would turn white, meaning I would not be able to see anything or anyone but the color white, then that’s the time when the person I’m gonna be spending my whole life with will appear.

I ate the fruit not because of its magic but because of its kewl color. And then I became really dizzy (the feeling is vivid even now). I saw the door knobs went white and then the door and then the windows until I was engulfed in white. It was creepy; it’s like being in a limbo of some sort. And then I remember that I’d be seeing the person I’m gonna spend my life with when I heard footsteps.

I turned around and tried to figure out where the sound was coming from. And then there it was, amid the white backdrop there was a shadow. I walked towards the shadow and I saw a man.

Haha, and I kinda like said, PSST! He slowly turned around (az in) and then my sister woke me. So that was why I was tossing and turning, trying hard NOT to wake up.

friday the 15th May 15, 2009

Posted by putomaia in Family Feud, Random Rambling.

I was with my family in GMall this afternoon when we suddenly decided we wanted to go to DCLA (Uyanguren). So we went there, my sister and I practically skipping from one Korean- owned store to the next. It was raining when we got there but thankfully, by the time we’re ready to go home, it already stopped.

As what I said, we were ready to go home when we again suddenly decided to check out the newly opened Robinsons Cybergate in Lanang. So off we went. It was already dark by the time we got there.

It was our first time to be there and we like spent 5 seconds looking at the buildings before deciding where to go. I looked at the second building and I almost squealed in delight when I saw a CD- R King store. Hahahahaha, loser! Ewan ko ba kung bakit natutuwa ako pag nasa CD- R King ako. But most of the time, I couldn’t enjoy being in the store because almost all branches in the city are always full of people. As in jam- packed. As in talaga.

But in Robinsons. it was practically deserted. So I insisted to go there. And I was smiling when I bought a pink flash drive. The saleslady wondered if there’s something on her face. Hahaha.

Anyway, Robinsons is nice but there are a lot of things they have to improve on. One, I think the parking lot should not be in front of the main buildings. I think I’ve had enough of that style in Makro. First, it’s not convenient for people who have to commute and second, it resulted to a lack of “welcoming” ambiance. People should see people, not cars.

Also, I DEMAND that before the end of this year there’d be a department store, theater, boutiques and all the necessary stuff. And PLEASE, let there be a Davao franchise of Krispy Kreme. =(

Na- excite tuloy ako for Ayala Abreeza in Bajada. I think it’s gonne be completed next year. Krispy Kremes please!

And currently, I’m surfing the web for another XML skin but sadly, I can’t find another one that suits my personality so I guess I’m sticking to birdy. =)

rehistradong fruitcake May 12, 2009

Posted by putomaia in Addiction, Family Feud, Social Awareness.

I just got home from a loooooong day downtown. The places I went to this morning aren’t really that important so I guess I might as well tell you what happened this afternoon.

I’m now a registered voter! After more than 2 grueling hours of waiting and falling in line, finally I got hold of the mahiwagang voter’s slip. It’s like, the future of our government is like, literally in my hands. Charing.

I did not register at the main Comelec office, knowing that there’d be so many people there. Our baranggay had the insight to open the Brgy hall for registration. When we (mom and I) got there 2 this afternoon, I thought that the people waiting outside (and inside) were there to get their benefits, etc. Why? Because these are old people. I have nothing against them; I was just shocked because in the main Comelec office, 90 percent perhaps of the people there were my age. Little did I know that in our obscure baranggay, there were lots of old people who’d be voting for the first time next year. Kewl.

And by the way, I looked sooo cute in the picture for my voter’s ID. Para lang akong naglasing nang buong gabi kagabi.

After I was done with the registration, mom and I went downtown again to go to GMall. For what, you ask? My sister pestered me this morning to buy her pencils and a sharpener. Okaaay.
I went to NBS and looked for pencils and sharpener. I was going to pay for them at the counter when I remembered that the money I have with me is a buong P 1, 000. And the amount I’m going to pay is a measly fifty pesos. I’m in danger of being punched by the saleslady.

So I went back to the aisles and tried to find a good book. I was going to buy Bob Ong’s McArthur and Young Blood 3 when suddenly, I noticed four thin books almost hidden in one corner. You could not read the labels clearly but the color of the cover was so eerily familiar I almost had goosebumps. Okay, enough. Unconsciously, I put down the other two books and went to the counter bringing with me THE Eraserheads’ Fruitcake.

Loser much? I know that this book had been long published but I was just a cute little kid back then. Last December, a newer edition was released but I only saw it personally in Davao like early this year? And early this year, I always was short of money because I had no job. Now that I have a job, I sort of gave up looking for the book because I couldn’t find it in the nearest suking NBS. But now, parang fate lang. Uber kewlest.

nightmare May 11, 2009

Posted by putomaia in Dreams, Jitters, Private Me.

Nightmare nga ba?

Hindi ko alam kung bakit ka nagparamdam kagabi. Hindi ka naman patay. Syempre naman malalaman ko kung patay ka na noh. May mambabalita naman siguro saken kahit papaano.

Nanaginip ako. Andun ka. Magkasama raw tayo. Hindi ko alam kung bakit magkasama tayo, ‘di ko rin alam bakit sa Mintal ang setting. Ilang taon na rin tayong di nagkikita. Ilang taon na rin kitang di naaalala.

Naalala ko tuloy bigla nung huli tayong magkita. Sa birthday ni ano. Ang sweet mo saken nun, hindi ko alam bakit. May girlpren ka nun eh. Saka ko lang nalaman, matagla na pala kayong breyk. Akala ko kaya kayo nagbreak tsaka kaya ka nagpapakyut saken kasi na- realize mo na ako tlaga labs mo ever since.

Tapos nalaman ko, meh nililigawan ka naman plang iba. Feeling hurt tuloy ako.

Pero andami nang nangyari saken pagkatapos nun. Hindi na kita naiisip, pramis. Ewan ko sayo. Nananahimik na ako.

Pero ang ganda ng panaginip ko. Para talagang totoo. Tapos masaya. Tapos bigla akong nagising. Madaling araw pa. Para akong nagising mula sa isang bangungot. Tapos uminom ako ng tubig, para feel ang eksena. Dun ko lang napansin, nahulog halos lahat ng mga nakadikit sa dingding ko. Nahulog din yung samting na bigay mo.

Bakit? Anong nangyari?

santino + rarejob May 11, 2009

Posted by putomaia in Angst is so 90s, Random Rambling, Working Class.

Isang malupet na PS habang wala pa ang estudyante ko. Nakakalungkot isipin na hindi ko makikita kung nanay ba talaga ni Santino si Lorna Tolentino.

Youtube na lang siguro.

After 2 minutes…

Dagdagan ko nlang tong post na itow dahil absent naman ang estudyante kow. Naba- bother talaga ako sa ibang mga tutors sa amin na wrong grammar kung magsulat ng tutoring notes. Hindi ba sila aware na nababasa ng lahat yun?

I mean, aminado ako na minsan, dahil sa pagka praning (at pagka-bobo na rin) ay naro- wrong grammar ako sa pagturo. Pero spoken ‘yun. Spontaneous. Tsaka minsan lang naman noh. Pag tutoring notes, tina- type na nga, di mo pa kelangang madaliin. Pwede mong irebyu. Pero nga naman, kahit ilang ulit mo pang rebyuhin, kung ang pananaw mo sa wrong grammar mo ay tama, hindi mo naman talaga papalitan yun.

Tutor A: He has two childrens.
Tutor B: He do not know how to use Skype.

At ang mas malala pa nito, meh karugtong pa talagang comments ang mga tutors na ‘to na:

The student can speak well but he has some grammar lapses.

Kung ako student n’yo, sasabihin ko ring:

The tutor can teach but she has many lapses, one being her grammar.

Suddenly I feel like singing Basang- basa sa Ulan of Aegis.
