While I was browsing through my friendster I came across one of my office mates accounts. Oddly I noticed that he had some sort of ad that his blog was now back up for everyone to see.
So, I tried to access his blog and lo and behold it had a link to my old blog. I clicked on it and wallah it took me back to memory lane, back to times when everything significant that happened to me found it's way into my very own blog.
It really was nice reminiscing and savoring the fun times, (and some hard times)by reading through the passages. It really was so fulfilling that I've decided to resurrect my Blog from the ashes!!!!

This coming Saturday, July 8, 2006, the UAAP would again open its doors to college athletes and give them the chance to showcase their skills and ultimately bring honor to their respective universities. At the same time, this would usher in the start of the Men’s Basketball competition, wherein teams from the 7 member schools would now have the opportunity to oust the FEU Tamaraws from their reign as the Kings of UAAP Men’s Basketball.
Of course, I’d still be giving my full support to my Alma Mater, University of Santo Tomas. I believe that this year’s roster of Tigers will be able to match up with the stronger teams so I’m pretty optimistic about our chances of making it to the Final Four.
Aside from the Tigers, the Warriors (UE), Eagles (ADMU), and the Tams (FEU) are shoe-ins to the Final Four. The fourth and final spot should be a battle between the Tigers (UST) and Fighting Maroons (UP). Of course you could never count out the Bulldogs (NU), who most spectators see as the dark horse of this year’s tournament, and the Falcons (Adamson), who will be parading Leo Austria as their new coach.
I almost failed to mention that the De La Salle Green Archers are suspended from this year’s UAAP tournament. This was because of the controversy that some of their players were involved in late last year. Most observers are curious as to what the UAAP scene would turn out without the boys from Taft.
I guess we’ll just have to wait for a couple of more days to finally find out.

Finally after months of planning to change my Blog Theme I actually was able to update it early this morning. I was browsing the internet, trying to find the easiest way to change the skin on my Blog and what you're seeing right now is the final product of what seemed to be a task that took forever.
I guess it'll be a while before I again decide to change my Blog Template. Heheheheh
I would also like to greet my Hunny in advance. She'll be celebrating her 28th birthday this July 7, here's to hoping that we be able to celebrate a lot more of your birthdays together.
I love you.

It's my RESTDAY!!! After 4 weeks of rendering WORD, (Work on Rest Days) I'm very thankful that for this week I'll be enjoying my day off's, yep that's in plural form meaning it's more than 1 rest day.
I really couldn't imagine that I'll be able to render WORD for 4 straight weeks! Whew, I just didn't knew what got into me, maybe the the thought of being reprimanded and being issued an IR, (Incident Report), forced me, and the rest of my team to adhere with the company's Mandatory WORD policy.
But aside from the fear of being slapped with a memo, the company also came out with additional incentive for agents who'll render WORD every week. It's a cumulative incentive wherein the amount of incentive you'll receive will depend on the number of times you render WORD.
This is really a good motivating factor, that I think the company should adapt every time they require their agents to render Mandatory WORD. It's a little something that the company could give to show their gratitude to their personnel for sparing a day off of their Rest Days to help the company.
Just my two cents!
Last Wednesday the Miami Heat got their first NBA Championship outlasting the Dallas Mavericks in 6 games. The cast led by Dwayne Wade swept the last 4 games after they fell behind 0 - 2 in the best of seven series with the Mavs.
Dwayne Wade won the finals MVP (hands down!!) after he mustered a phenomenal performance in the series. His timely heroics helped the Heat slither out of some tight spots which could have decided the series outcome.
Will this be the start of a new dynasty in the East, who knows? But for now the Miami Heat are the Kings of the NBA.

Wow, it really has been a while since my last update. Last time, I was preparing for a 6-day vacation. Well, those 6 days seemed to just breeze through, time really flies by you when you're enjoying yourself.
**Pictures to be posted soon!!
I'm back to work, unfortunately.. eheheh and looking forward to the next vacation which would probably be in September. We're off to Guimaras Island in Iloilo. Just hope the weather wouldn't be that gloomy because of the rainy season.
I don't know what's gotten into me but I've been mostly sleepy the past few days. Maybe it's just because of the simple reason that I've had less sleep or it might be because that I've just been thinking too much as of late.
There were times where I'd just stare at the monitor and after a while find myself dozing off to la la land. Good thing I've never been caught yet (because I do most of my dozing off at the office), but who knows, right? I might, one of these days, find myself at the receiving end of one vicious tongue lashing from my manager.

Next Thursday I'll be flying to Iloilo for a well deserved vacation. I'd be staying there for a night and then the following morning I'll be heading to Boracay (via Bus which I think takes around 3 - 4 hours). We'll be spending 4 days and 3 nights in Boracay, enjoying the sights and sounds of what many consider the best island getaway this part of the world has to offer. Then we'll be heading back to Iloilo to spend one last night before heading back to Manila on May 2.
So for those who'll be going to Boracay from April 28 - May 1, see you guys there!
