perks, freebies, prizes, and gifts! (only at Perceptions)

122311. friday.

just wanna share the happiness and generosity i experienced from the wonderful people of Perceptions. :)

i started my internship november 14. this only means i've been there for just a month and a few days now yet they've been this kind to me already. i'm so grateful my training is in Perceptions. :) haha! i'm lucky 'coz it so happened that my internship is during the period where there're a lot of events at the office. haha! one good example is christmas, the season of giving! haha! and when someone gives, another receives! haha! yes, i'm the great receiver. haha!

here are some of the items i got! 

let's start with the KRIS KRINGLE gifts! 
something hot and spicy, something fun and cute! haha!
something bright and colorful!
the christmas lights were the reason my KPOP name was revealed! haha! during the kris kringle, you have to make sure that nobody catches you when you get your gifts so that they won't know who you are. those who won't get caught will receive prizes. sadly, my mommy had this brilliant plan of making sure she'd catch me. what she did was she wrapped the christmas lights around the illustration board and had the lights turned on when she put it in the gift box! o hell! i had no choice. i wasn't able to find a way to secretly get it since the lights were so obvious! haha! 

next are the raffle prizes! :)
airbus watch.
a digital photo frame. you can also play music and watch movies using this. :)  thanks, discovery. this will inspire me to do the MCB better and faster! hahaha!
finally, the gifts from the beautiful people of Perceptions. :)
thanks, ms. trix! i don't see her all the time but still she gave me this! sweet! thanks!
thank you, ms winnie. something challenging. haha!  i'm not good at this. haha!
ms. raquel gave this to me. thank you! she's so nice and makulit and  maldita too! i like her. haha!
what i received from kuya whom i have given little gifts for four days. thank you, kuya! very useful. hehe.
cute skirt. the accidental gift from funny mavic. she's the nicest. :) THANK YOU!
and just like all the other employees, i also received ham from GMN! haha! cool.  they are so nice. they always count me in. :) make me feel i belong somehow. :)

actually, there's another gift from joy. it's just that i already ate it and i wasn't able to take a picture. haha! anyways, thank you joy! haha!
more than the material things, it is the thought that's so touching. these may be simple gifts but i absolutely value each of them. :)

THANK YOU, PERCEPTIONS. i wish to have more wonderful moments while i'm still there. hope everyday becomes a treat. :)

lezdodiz PASAY!

112611. saturday.


just sharing some photos of our room in Pasay where we'll be staying for three months maybe. haha! it's pretty small, but it's just enough to provide us a space to relax after every day's encounter. haha! and i believe it's not bad at all. it's kinda cute. haha!
the curtains gave the room life.
we don't have much things here but we still manage to live each day, and besides, we always get home late and we're all tired that we wouldn't even have time to watch tv or even surf the net. hehe. with just the three of us, everything's workable. it's more of give and take with the chores that we gotta do and even with the things we need. tapang prepares our umagahan, hanawoods volunteers to fold tapang's mattress cover, and i buy the yelo! haha! whatever happens, it's just in the three of us with whom we can rely. i bet we're gonna be independent somehow 'coz there'll be no one else who'll do things for us but us. gotta learn how to be a responsible roommate to them. gonna appreciate more the things our parents do for us, from the 'littlest' up to the hardest. haha! 
hanawoods while washing the dishes after dinner. haha!
and since we don't have a TV nor a radio (actually, we used to have a radio, but due to tapang's carelessness, it's now gone. haha!), all that we do as we get home is to just talk about how our day went. doing so keeps us busy even without the things that we're used to having. haha! we'd be laughing hard every time. and it's because of this that the girls in the other rooms beside us are already annoyed. they even sent their concerns to the owner. they were saying that we are too noisy. we were like "what the hell is their problem?!" haha! maybe we're loud sometimes, but they are just as loud at times too, so why the fuck are they so pissed? haha! as for me, the more they get mad, the happier i become. haha!!! they are being ridiculous. 
so far, so good. that's what i can say about our, what, two weeks stay here though there were some petty problems with our water supply, our bathroom light bulb, the duplicate keys issues and more. hahaha! those problems make us more alert in all that we do in a funny way. haha!

and it is by living here that i realized more how bad i feel when i am not at our home. i always feel homesick, as in always. there's not a second that i don't miss home. i am such a homebuddy. i can just spend the whole day there not doing anything and not feel bored or anything at all. o man, why does it have to be this hard? haha! i miss calamba too, the calambeño  and batangueño accent, the traffic jam every morning, the smoke from the jeepneys and tricycles, though there are far more vehicles and chaos in pasay, it still feels different, different in a way that only me can understand. haha! 

our stay here is surely gonna teach us some lessons. but we'll just let the lessons unfold as we go through this whole internship thing. haha!

tara biglaan, ano?

111011. thursday.

EK + swimming. :)

a week ago we had no plans of going anywhere together. but in just a snap, after their biglaang lakad at paseo de sta. rosa, we were about to have fun at Enchanted Kingdom. haha!

o yes, we went to EK. haha! we were fascinated to think that this EK trip which we originally planned when we were still in our first year had finally come to life! haha. can you believe that? none of us thought that we could still push through with it after three years. haha! it's also funny just thinking that it happened when we didn't really have any formal discussion about going there. haha! 
di pa nakakapasok sa EK, di na agad nagpaawat sa pagpapa-picture e. haha!
ago, je, fi, jonas, juwie, zhello, yvonne and i were present during that day. haha! what made it extra special was the fact that our dearest fionna and cherry also went with us. haha! they are so sweet. cherry didn't attend an activity at school just to be with us. so touching. haha! it only showed how much they wanted to join us. haha! i'm sure they did not regret spending the day with us 'coz it was such an awesome day! as in! haha!
cherry, jonas and fionna.
when we got to EK, these were the rides we enjoyed:

flying fiesta.
flying fiesta served as the warm-up ride for everyone. haha!

anchors away.
this was the ride that tested juwie's 'capacity'! hahaha! she was soo scared and felt nauseated after we rode anchors away. what's funny is that she was actually the one who wanted to sit at the farthest row 'coz she thought it was gonna be cool, but then no. it was not cool, not for her. haha! she was seated between me and marfi. she had her eyes closed while her hands tightly held our laps during the ride! haha! that's how scared she was. haha! now we know the real capacity of juwie! she even joked. she said, "guys, makipag-away na lang tayo o." haha! she'd rather get in a fight with anyone than riding anchors away again. haha!
jungle log jam.
haha! it was my first time to ride on jungle log jam so i had no idea. what i only know is that we're gonna get wet! haha! and so it happened. haha! the sleeves and back of my blouse were wet, but due to the sun's heat, they were dry in just an hour. haha!

roller skater.
this was the ride that juwie enjoyed most she said. haha! i agree. no hassle, just fun. but it's a different case for yvonne. jerome was with her during the ride and he told us that yvonne was screaming her lungs out from the beginning up to the end of it. haha! i dunno why. 

rialto.
the rialto experience was just cute as always. what we watched was happy feet. hehe. we just sat there and let our seats move and shake us according to what the characters were doing. haha! it also served as a cooling place for us 'coz we were already soaked in the sun's heat for a long time. thank goodness the room was air-conditioned. haha! 
buding, ago and yvonne while waiting in line.
this is ago before the start of happy feet. i am the one on the seat beside her. i'm not visible in the picture though. hahaha!
space shuttle.
the death-defying space shuttle. haha! this was supposed to be second in the list of our rides, but because some were still doubtful whether they'd go or not, it became sixth. haha! only juwie and je didn't come. they really didn't want to, and it is pretty understandable why. haha! i was so scared too! scared as hell just like each one of us. haha! while we were on the line, we nervously watched those who were already locked in their seats at space shuttle! o god! watching them was not helpful 'coz it even made us feel more afraid. haha! the moment we were the next in line for space shuttle,we never stopped screaming. we even blamed fi for making us ride! hahaha! and then, we were already seated and locked. there's nothing we could do then! help us! haha! during the ride, i was screaming in fear, letting all the bad words come out of my mouth to at least lessen the fear. fionna, who was my partner during the ride, said, "ate nona, nabingi ako sa mura mo e." couldn't blame her. hahaha! my eyes were closed. there were only  a few times when i opened them and closed them again as fast as i could. haha! but when we were done, we all felt glad! we felt fulfilled 'coz we have conquered the ride we feared most. haha! truth is we felt less of what we expected. it was not as intestine-tingling as we thought it would be. haha! 
looking at this makes me wanna back out. haha! can't blame me. haha!
this is juwie. haha! she didn't join us in this ride. said she couldn't do it. hehe.
after the space shuttle experience! we were all so high! haha!  the ride was sooo much fun!
rio grande rapids.
fi, juwie, yvonne, and i were not able join them. haha! they said they had fun. haha! they were all so wet just as expected. 
horror booth.
the name horror booth is just the opposite of what we all experienced haha! we were never horrified. we laughed all the while inside! haha! the experience was so, so funny especially that part at the shaking hanging bridge! hahaha! fi and i did nothing at that bridge but jump and jump and jump while we were laughing hard because of jonas' teeth glowing in the dark!!! haha! it was soo funny! can't forget the feeling.

wheel of fate.
it was only me, je, jonas, buding, and juwie who got to the wheel of fate. haha! the others decided to go to anchors away and jungle log jam again. haha! i was so excited of wheel of fate 'coz i haven't experienced it yet. haha! but shit, oh shit. i shouldn't have been excited at all. haha! it was so scary when we were up in the air! haha! the five of us was like shouting at each other in fear. we'd scold anyone of us who'd make our seat move. we felt like we could fall right there and then with just one wrong move. haha! the view was great. you could see the whole EK plus the places that surround it, but we were not able to appreciate it that much 'coz we were all afraid. haha! juwie was so scared again. haha! what's funny was when the three gays in the other seat were happily and calmly singing together while we were beside them dying in nervousness. haha!
juwie again. now she can't even move a muscle 'coz she feels like vomiting! haha! poor juwie.
last picture before we leave EK. haha!
and since it's biglaan, the plan of going to paseo was changed into going to yvonne's resort for a swimming. haha! biglaan at biglaan lang ba? haha! 

when we got there, 

videoke.
kainan na solid sa sarap at saya.
kwentuhan na solid. alams na.
moni sila.
swimming. 
si yvonne napapraning na naman. haha!
picture-an.


tawanan.


haha!

fionna , jonas and cherry were not able to come with us anymore, but it's till all right. haha! i know they had so much fun. i had to go home by 1:30, so i left them. haha! 

lesson of the story: pag biglaan, natutuloy. haha!

P.S.


thanks to je for all the photos! hahaha!

Starbucks lovin'

i wasn't a fan of this coffee restaurant, but when i had a taste of these two beautiful things, the story's changed. haha! 
chocolate chip frappuccino. :)
i'm speechless. haha! i want 10 of this. haha!
