"pinili kong maging masaya dahil mas madaling ngumiti.... kaysa ipaliwanag kung bakit ako malungkot...." (i choose to be happy because it is easier to smile than to explain why i am lonely.)


those were the words printed on a shirt i saw from a pic in a friend's multiply account. and i want to have a shirt like that. it's even colored green, very simple, but it exactly says how i am when am lonely.

as they say, people who have more smiles hide behind the same amount of tears. i guess that goes for many people out there. pinoys are generally happy people. we tend to be joyful amidst all the odds we are in, which is a very good thing. there are only a few people who are transparent with their feelings. most often than not, we tend to hide our true feelings, not because we want to lie but simply because we don't want to talk about it. truly, it's so much easier to smile than to explain why you have a frown on your face and answer endless why?? questions.

why are you lonely?

because my parents scolded me.


because i came in late last night.


because i went out with my friends and got drunk.



and it goes on..... and on..... and on..... and on.......

isn't it tiring to answer so many questions specially when you are not in that chatty- spill-the-beans mood and you don't really want to talk about heavy, dramatic stuff? and so to avoid putting yourself in that uncomfortable Q&A situation, you just smile...

yes, i do smile often too. actually i smile more now than when i was younger. there are actually so much to smile about in my life that i have not noticed before. but whether my smiles are made of happiness or sadness, only i know what lies beneath them.

handbag dilemma

been hearing bout handbag dilemma lately... what to buy? is this nice? do you think it suits me? so.... ironically, i found this quiz on the net:

What Your Handbag Says About You

You tend to be relaxed but alert. You keep your eye out for anything unusual.

You are a very unique and special person. There's no one else who is anything like you.

bangles galore and more!

when i was starting with my multiply account, one of my first contacts is baubles, bangles, & beads. this very creative and artistic group was and still is being featured in television and magazines. i dont really remember though if i saw it on tv or read bout it then, but i was really interested in the designs even though i am not really that fond of bangles. so, i added the group up in my contact list. although that was kinda long time ago, it was only in july of this year that i made my first order.

it was very hard for me to choose from the many cool and funky designs. it was also hard to trim down my many choices into just 3 pieces of bangles. what helped me make my decision? well, 2 of those bangles were gifts to friends, so i just thought of what they like. then, the other one was for me. that was kinda hard to decide though coz there were really sooooo many designs that i so fancy... hay.... but anyhow, i just chose the same design with one of the 2 bangles i have already chosen. anywayz, what the heck with all the chenelyn, churva, and eklavu of dilemma... :D theres always next time. hopefully, i will be able to buy every design that i want. hehe.... besides, its not anymore only bangles or beads that i can buy. now, baubles, bangles, & beads also sells the same artistic, hand-made creations in the form of bags and shoeseseses! hehehe....

i am very much satisfied with my bangle purchase. twas really also a very good first time online purchase experience in multiply. its very easy to deal with baubles, bangles, and beads, and that i believe, is because of pao's undeniable charisma. ahehehe! sana naman pao, one of these days e ma-meet ko, hindi lang ikaw, but all of you great people behind baubles, bangles, & beads.

am so looking forward to my next purchase... :)

i have been trying for sooooooooo veeeeeeeeeeeeery loooooooooooong now to update my blog with a new template but unfortunately i always get this annoying bx error code:

We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request. When reporting this error to Blogger Support or on the Blogger Help Group, please:

Describe what you were doing when you got this error. Provide the following error code and additional information.


Additional information

blogID: ********
uri: /html

This information will help us to track down your specific problem and fix it! We apologize for the inconvenience.

apparently, it is not easy to report to blogger even though millions of subscribers encounter the same problem. the only thing you can do is post your problem on their help group. yun lang! and you will wait if someone or a subscriber like yourself can help you. you cannot directly contact anybody from blogger. doesnt that suck?!? and if you visit their help group, particularly in the "something is broken" group, you will find a whole bunch of people having different kinds of bx error code problems. and blogger doesnt even say anything if theyre doin something about it or not. Whatever happened to: "This information will help us to track down your specific problem and fix it! We apologize for the inconvenience" huh???

this is also the reason why i lost all the things i customized in my blog. i was able to save my old template, ya... but! all the things inside the widgets are gone! that means i lost my blog links, web links, videos, pix.... everything! so now i have to just stick with my old template until blogger does something about it because the only things that you can retain when this kinda problem happens are your blog entries. thankfully... but that isnt good enough. i know that this is a free blogging site, but i hope blogger, or google for that matter, will take extra effort in helping their subscribers since if not also for us, they will not have been as popular as they are today.

Prayers and Blood Donation for Francis Magalona

Photo courtesy of

PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) received information earlier today, August 13, that rapper-songwriter Francis Magalona has been diagnosed with leukemia and is currently in need of blood donors.

Pupil band manager and Francis's good friend Day Cabuhat told PEP in a phone interview that any blood type and platelets will be accepted.

"Donations may be made at the lower ground level of The Medical City in the name of Francis Magalona," relayed Day. The Medical City is located along Ortigas Avenue in Pasig City.

Friends and relatives organized a blood donation drive to help the popular singer's cause. They're also asking friends from the media to spread the word regarding Francis's condition to encourage people to turn up and donate blood.

MASTER RAPPER. The son of local matinee idol Pancho Magalona and actress Tita Duran, Francis created his own mark in the entertainment industry as a rapper-performer when he released his debut album, Yo! back in 1990. The said record spawned the massive nationalistic rap hit song "Mga Kababayan," which in effect introduced Pinoy style rap music in the mainstream.

The ‘90s band explosion failed to deter Francis's popularity and significance in the music scene as proven by the number of hit albums and good singles he churned out since Yo! He even collaborated with other artists and most of the time experimented with various sounds and genres so as not to remain stale before the listening public.

Some of his memorable songs include "Mga Praning," "Meron Akong Ano," "Man From Manila," "Cold Summer Nights," "Bahay Yugyugan," "Ito ang Gusto Ko," "Girl Be Mine," and "Kaleidoscope World."

Aside from singing and writing songs, Francis also plunged into hosting. He served first as a VJ for both MTV Philippines and Channel V before joining the country's longest running noontime show Eat Bulaga! as one of the regulars.

Francis was also tapped as one of the judges, along with music maestro Ryan Cayabyab and Pilita Corrales, of Philippine Idol's maiden season in 2006 aired on ABC-5.

He also ventured into photography and music video directing, megging videos for artists such as Sponge Cola, Join the Club, Gloc 9, Shamrock, Join The Club, Pikaso, Death Threat, and Pupil.

Francis is married to Pia Arroyo and their union is blessed with eight children: Unna, Nicolo, Francis Jr., Isabella, Elmo, Arkin, Clara and young actress Maxene Magalona.

paul and kleng's wedding

wow! its been such a great while since ive blogged. having a job, i guess, doesnt do my blog any good. hehe.... but i miss blogging though. actually, there are so much that i need to blog about. there's this blog that i was supposed to write about a friend's wedding, but.... as usual, until now i never have written it. :( the fact that i lost the camera where all the pics i have taken from that wedding were doesn't give me any enthusiasm to start writing. well, apart from posting conspi's monthly schedule, that is.

but here it goes...

those who are familiar with my blog would know that the wedding blog i am talking about is supposed to be a follow-up to the proposal and engagement blog and the bridal shower blog i have written some time, if not ages, ago. now, my drive and excitement to write about that wedding has somehow waned because i havent got any pix to show how great that occasion was. but anyhow, i will still try to post a simple blog to remember that day.

yes, kleng, one of my very good friends, has finally tied the knot at 32 on november 24, 2007. (hmmm.... akala ko mare hindi na tayo ikakasal... ako lang pala yun... ahehehe!) it was one of the most beautiful weddings i have attended. well, actually most of my close friends' weddings were great. but since i havent gone to weddings in a veeeeeeeery long time already, this recent one can be considered as the best... hehe...

i am kinda happy that i needed not wear anything fantabulous. coz at least for this wedding, i didnt have any part to play. whew! i had been a bride's maid, a candle sponsor, and a veil sponsor in weddings. (never was a cord sponsor or a maid of honor though...) but for this wedding, i was just a simple guest... yipee! although i have also attended weddings where i was also a guest, most of the time i play a role if it's a friend's wedding. and when i dont play any part in the wedding, my closest friends would know that i dont wear a dress or a gown. and so, i wore pants on kleng's wedding, matched with an indian inspired top. but of course i dressed suitable for the occasion even though i did not wear a gown you know! :D

that night before kleng's wedding, i was supposed to spend the night at the hotel with her. but i did not go because i was not feeling too well and i thought too that she needed much rest in preparation for her wedding the next day. knowing kleng and myself, we will just talk and talk the whole night and never sleep. so, i just dropped by at the hotel the day of the wedding instead of going straight to the church.

when i arrived at the hotel, kleng was already fully made up. she looked glorious in white.... like me, kleng never really dress-up that much. i guess that is why when she does, she really looks gorgeous. naks! (sister, love your own kse di ba!?! ;p) in the hotel room, i saw her family and a few close friends. and just a few minutes after i arrived, all were set to take pictures. apart from the professional photographers, i and kleng's freinds also took pictures with our own cameras. but sadly, i wasn't able to save mine. huhuhu.... after all the kodakan, we all got ready to leave for the church. i rode with two people, one is kleng's friend and the other is paul's (the groom), following the bridal car.

in the church, i met some of the groom's friends. together with them, i and my companions seated together. it was the first time i had been to the hearts of mary and jesus parish, which is also popularly called "twin hearts." i have heard so much about this church before. they said it is a very nice, small church in west triangle that is very ideal for intimate weddings. and indeed it is... kleng and paul's choice was great. the ceremony was also very touching because the priest who officiated the wedding shared and sang a beautiful song about commitment. (which reminds me that i have to ask kleng for the title for the nth time.) after the wedding, instead of throwing rice, the guests where given little bubble bottles to blow baby bubbles on the newly-weds. while doing just that, i realized that you cant really empty out the bubble bottle cause its not that easy to blow bubbles even though you try hard as you can. naubusan lang naman ako ng hininga! :D

the place where the reception was held was also very nice, although am not really that familiar with the place. i especially liked the tree outside that was peppered with long strings of small bright lights glowing in the early evening. it actually reminded me of a weeping willow tree, only a glowing one. although i havent really seen a live one, only in pictures, i really like how that kind of tree looks. there were also small candles inside mini-paper bags that light the stairs and walkway going to the reception hall. parang fairytale... hehe... i felt like sleeping beauty lost in the woods guided only by these mini-lights. as in ganun talaga ang effect... :D

another surprising thing on this event was the reception itself. instead of having table numbers, the couple thought of having the tables named after signifcant people, things, or events in their lives. actually, i forgot what the name of my table was. i think it was "pau & mau." if i remember it right, pau was the designer of the cartoon on the wedding invites, while mau naman was repsonsible yata for the invitation itself and the wedding favors. ayun... there was also a table named "conspiracy...." o di ba... why? kasi nga di ba, thats where paul prosposed to kleng on valentines day, while noel cabangon was playing??? o di ba, significant talaga ako sa kanila? this thing about the table names was explained as an introduction to a game. the hosts said that those names on the tables are connected to both the bride and the groom. and so, they asked trivias bout the newly weds in connection with those table names. i was able to answer one question cause obvious naman na dapat alam ko ang sagot. the question was, where did paul propose to kleng? nakakainis no? ang hirap ng tanong?

so there.... the things i have mentioned are the most important things for me in paul&kleng's wedding. actually, there are a lot, but those topped my list. and lastly, of all weddings i have attended, this couple is my favorite. they never get tired of having their pictures taken... as in... paul and kleng..... ADIK!!! :D congrats again chummies... oh, double congratulations cause kleng is now expecting a baby... o di ba ang bilis ni papa paul? love ya papa G and mama G!!! cant wait for baby G!

p.s. salamat sa mga ninakaw ko ng walang paalam na pictures sa multiply site ni paul . :D ;p pasensya na po... :)

pati singers mana sa ikinasal, adik! :D

ops! wag mabahala... hindi po dalawa ang pinakasalan ni kleng. isa lamang. bahala na kayong manghula kung sino jan.... ahehehe!!!
