Last week right before we left for Baguio, Rain lost his celphone from the taxi. Darn! He didn't realize it until such time na meron na siyang tatawagan and that's after an hour na. Nyak! His phone was not that really "top of the line" phone most of the people we know. He's not particular kase sa gadget basta nakaka-text and call. Though we got the phone for FREE from Sun (cellular) tapos kaka-renew palang nya ng contract after 2 years, hindi masyado mabigat. What's his after was the phonebook from the sim.
We called for a couple of times and ayun ring pa rin ng ring. Baka hindi pa nare-realize ng driver na someone left a celphone from his taxi. We tried calling like 5 times muna then called sun to temporarily disconnect the line baka kung sino-sino pa ang tawagan nun. Mahirap na! Kaya when we arrived at Baguio, during our 2nd day, we went to Sun (SM) to get another sim. Pero wala pa ring phone. =(

{his lost phone =( }

Then, monday morning, we went to Makati to buy his phone. Actually, nandun palang kami sa Baguio, he's eyeing to something very affordable and super-low-tech. Ayaw na daw nya ng mamahalin para hindi mabigat sa bulsa pag nawala. Rain commutes everyday from work. Ayaw nya magdala because of the high parking rate in Makati. Saka ung pede lang daw nya maiwan sa table nya na walang magkaka-interest. hehehe!
I was convincing him to buy the Samsung (slide-black - na hindi ko matandaan ang model) which is so nipis ang sobrang gaan! Oo daw maganda un, pero kung ganon daw palit kami nalang ng phone. I'll give my other phone (ericsson K750i) which is originally his phone, at ako na daw ang gumamit kung ano ang gusto ko. E ayaw ko naman because luma na masyado. Pero after a long persuassion, bumagsak kami dito pa din. Siya pa rin nanalo hehehe!

{his new super high-tech phone} nyahaha =p

Baguio Here We Come
Yep! Tomorrow we'll be going to Baguio. I'm excited! Now, I'm suppose to pack our bags but still I'm bloghopping. hehehe! Inuna ko pa mag-blog! Susme! Ayun, nakalabas na ung bag and some of my shirts but still wala pa din... nakakalat pa din. Rain was telling me na "o baka naman sandamakmak na naman ang dala mo?3d/2n lang tayo".hehehe! Sigurista kase ako e, I don't want to bring clothes na sakto lang. Actually, I list down all the necessities we should bring for tomorrow pero parang ang dami masyado. Natatawa lang ako! Of course one of the major gadget I should bring is my CAM. Naku, please lang talaga! Hahaha... =p

It's already 1pm and I'm still writing this post. I have work pa later this evening. Waaah =( I'm still updating my iPod din, because few months ago, naku nawala lahat ng songs na nandun. Grrrr! Almost 4,000++ songs kaya nandun. Ngayon, I have to update it. Ewan ko ba baket nagkaganon. Kaya magta-tyaga nalang ako sa less than 200 songs na nandun. Kainis! I don't have time na to update the songs pa. Sana lang magkaroon ako ng time. Ang tagal ko pa nman kina-reer un, from the song title to album pati na rin artwork or album cover. Haba pa naman ng biyahe! Hay...

But anyways, I'm still thinking of bringing the laptop with us in order for me to upload some pics from the Panagbenga Festival. I heard ABS-CBN will cover the festivities. We'll dami tao nun for sure! Can't wait! =p Photos!

Compact Flash
Yesterday, Rain & I went to greenhills and bought a 4G compact flash card for my cam. I was torn between 2G or 4G. Since, I have 1G only, na halos nauubos ko sa isang trip. I decided to buy the 4G instead for our baguio trip this coming friday. Rain was saying ang gastos daw ang hobby ko hehehe. I was thinking of buying a tripod as well, sabi ko isa-isa muna. hehehe! Gastos masyado! Next month nalang. I saw this flexible tripod I wanted when I saw this on the web. But Rain told me na mas ok ung nakita namin when we went to Canon in Megamall, mas expensive but looks sturdy and more professional rather than this one. Parang laruan daw. hehehe! =p Buti nalang daw at meron akong hubby na supportive sa "hobby" ko. hahaha! Masyado daw magastos! =p Ganon?!

My sister is requesting me to order her a laptop over the web. She prefers DELL. So, she gave me Dell's website to check the specs on what's the best deal. Since, I'm very clueless about it, I told Rain to choose the laptop suitable for her. Although she prefers, Dell Inspiron and wants blue one. I will be ordering it online and have it delivered to their office. She's afraid to order it through her credit card daw! Kaya ako nalang daw besides she don't know what specs should have in a laptop. =p
I'll be ordering it by tomorrow as soon as Rain already decided for the specs suitable for my sister. I wonder if I can order for myself? nyahaha! =p Gagalit si Rain!

Walang time kase e hehehe! We went home around 3pm and I was so tired already. =p We both had a great time!

Friendship Meme
Thank you so much sexy Thet!

Anger is only one letter short of danger. If someone betrays you once, it is his fault; If he betrays you twice, it is your fault. Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people. He, who loses money, loses much; He, who loses a friend, loses much more; He, who loses faith, loses all. Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, But beautiful old people are works of art. Learn from the mistakes of others.

You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself. Friends, you and me…You brought another friend…And then there were 3…We started our group…Our circle of friends…And like that circle…There is no beginning or end…Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift.

So now, let’s see how many circles of friends we can make by simply adding your link on this Friendship Meme!

1- Catsy Carpe Diem 2- Catsy Downloads 3- Out of the Blue 4- A Day to Savor and Relish 5- A Piece of Idea 6- Write Shy 7- Stupid Wise 8- 9- 10- Pinay Mommy Online 11- Momhood Moments 12-My Life 13- Jean’s My So-called Life 14- Alpha’s Blog 15- Because Life Is Fun 16- Bits and Pieces 17-Whats up Caryl 18-Simply Me 19- A Mothers Horizon 20-BLOGSILOG 21-Cherry’s Comfort Zone 22-DigiScrapz:Captured Memories 23-Wishing and Hoping 24-Thinking Out Loud 25-Blessings in Life 26-NiervaDotCom 27-Davao Food Trip 28-Charles Terrence 29-Tere’s World 30-Journey in Life 32- CHISMIS 33- When Thet Speaks 34- Rainier & Katrina 35- Life. Learn it. Live it. Love it. 36- Colour Our World - You're Next Here!

Valentine Gift
I didn't receive my usual Valentine gift which is 'flowers'. But this is what I got... Yey! I was surprise because thursday morning, after work sabi lang nya, pasensiya daw kase nde siya nakabili ng gift for me. Which I understand naman because both of us were busy sa work and the worst is sobrang conflicting ang work schedule namin. Kaya the time we have is weekend. Buti nalang at this week, same ang rest day namin (sat & sun). Minsan lang mangyari to kaya we'll make the most out of it.

Anyways, ang alam ko lang talaga is we'll have post-valentine celebration nalang on the 16 (sat) and 16 was also part of our monthsary. Yes, we still celebrate monthsary! corny noh?! But we are! Though its not a requirement to have a gift for each other, basta we make it a point that we go out or dine out o basta magkasama kami! =p We're not yet decided whether dinner or lunch, but I prefer dinner nalang para romantic hahaha! So un nga, I woke up around 930pm and he's home already. Then he handed me a box.... and greeted me Happy Valentine's Day & Happy Monthsary!

Here's what inside...

Of course, I love my gift. =p Better than flowers. Thank you and I love you Lab. Another addition to my perfume collection! Love it. =p Happy, Happy, Happy!

Postponed Basic Training
I got a call from Jenny Briones (Jun Miranda's assistant) informing me that my (Canon's) basic photography training was re-scheduled to April 16-18. Sad! =( Though I'm too excited about it, I'm glad also it was re-scheduled due to my work schedule. They will inform me ahead of time if there are some changes just in case!

Harbour Square
Last Sat Rain and I together with our friend Isay had dinner at Pancake House, Harbour Square. Of course I did bring my camera to take some shots.

I did have a hard time taking this shot. I don't know how many times I've tried. So far here's the best for me. Hope I can perfect shots like this one. I should be needing a tripod for sure. =p

Ash Wednesday
Today mark the first day of Lent ~ Ash Wednesday. Too sad because Rain & I wasn't able to hear mass because of work. Guilty-feeling.
According to Wikipedia:
At Masses and services of worship on this day, ashes are imposed on the foreheads (or tonsure spots, in the case of some clergy) of the faithful. The priest, minister, or
in some cases officiating layperson marks the forehead of each participant with black ashes in the shape of a cross, which the worshiper traditionally retains until washing it off after sundown. The act echoes the ancient Near Eastern tradition of throwing ash over one's head to signify repentance before God (as related in the Bible). The priest or minister says one of the following when applying the ashes.
Fasting is also the common way we Filipinos do during Lenten Season. Avoid eating of pork during fridays is the most common amongs them.
