Mizuho そばにある Bullshit

Just so you know, Mizuho doesn’t allow you to withdraw money through ATM during late hours. Specially weekends ( i think). So Di pwede sa mga 7eleven/famima/lawson and then all their branches kay though the lights are on, are all closed. Pwede pagngon nalang na ninyo ang suga sa inyong mga establishment if sirado man diay mog gabii. Makadissapoint.

So there is no hope jud. IF ever you realized in the middle of the night that you are broke af, there is no hope for you, accept your perilous fate. Mizuho shuts down all possibility nga makawithdraw ka. You will die of hunger and kabalaka nga dili ka makauli sa inyo.

Imagine pila ka combini ug pila ka mizuho branch akong gisuroi sa Shinjuku para lang makawithdraw pero FAIL ang adventure.

Mizuho’s tagline is そばにいる。そばにある。 that means on your side always and anywhere. True naman na meron nga palagi sa tabi mo pero shit, sirado naman. And sa mga combini, di pud kawithdraw kay tungod sa time.

FU.

Museum Sa Kawagoe

I’ve been vocal about how much i love museums. Specifically historical museums or any heritage site, etc. Tungod guro ni kay ganahan ko ug mga karaan nga mga butang.

So last weekend (Thank you Darlene for ogranizing), nangadto mi sa Kawagoe (川越) in Saitama. Famous for the tragic fire incident? lol. Ae mean ginafocus man gud nila nga a hundred years ago, a big fire destroyed a big portion of the city. And so they rebuild them using a very proactive technique para mahimong fire proof sila. And those infrastracture lasted a lifetime kay hangtod karon naa pa gihapon. As in jud, the windows and the doors are very thick and heavy. I wonder if how many people would take to close that door during a fire.

Naa pud silay museum didto and we were so lucky that a guide came to us and explain all the highlights of the museum. Ug mao to, naamaze na pud ko nang bongga.

Hopefully makaadto pa kog daghang history museum.

P.S. Though im not saying nga dili ko ganahan ug mga Art Museum, pero i just can’t help nga makatawa somehow sa ubang artworks and painting. Effort kaayo to try to think as the artist and appreciate their works (e.g. mga plato ni picasso).

I’ll add more pictures sa museum later.

Valentines Day.

After New year unsa ang next event nga anticipated if walay Valentines Day? Diba dugay pa kaayo? Summer? Golden Week? Months pa! And so people invented the Valentines day para naai day nga mamalit ang mga tao ug mga chocolates/flowers for the sake of their love ones pero ang tinood para lang ito sa EKONOMIYA!

It’s all about money and economics. Kailangan ug mga day para mogawas ug mogasto ang mga tao and show their love ones they love them (as if naman wala na nila gishow everyday). Wa mo gawonder nganong throughout the world, dili jud holiday ang feb14? because it’s all a lie. IT’s a made-up occasion. (hahaha)

Ang mabolahan ani kay ang mga shops ra. And wait there’s more, in japan, dili lang enough ang feb14 kay naa pa silay march14 nga white day. It’s something nga ang mga babae nga nihatag pag feb14 kay magexpect nga makadawat nig march14 ug something X3 (take not x3) sa ilang gihatag sa feb14.

NGano? dili pwede magexchange gift nalng sa feb14? No! kay sayang ang inventory sa March kung matingob sa Feb.

*************

Bitter lang guro ko kay SINGLE ko.. pero this world is so industrialized. People making occasions para lang makabenefit with each other. Naa pay weeksary, monthsary, quartersary kay ofkurs dili man enough ang Anniversary kay most likely magbuwag ra man gud mo, di mo abtan ug tuig, nya mangamatay ra tang tanan in the end of this journey called life! (shoutout to : Mayman ka Dae!)

Random Memory: Noel Thomas

StarCraft?

Familiar mo ana nga game? Sikat kaayo ni sauna back in my elementary years. And i have a friend named Noel Thomas A nga ginalibrihan mi niya para magduwa sa mga internet cafe. I was kuan pud kaayo hangol, so gora lang. Wala kaayo ko kasabot sa dula ato.. I remember is dapat magcreate ka ug base and you should defend it from other team. IT didn’t grow on me, so i didn’t get hook to the game and luckily didn’t give it a chance to ruin my education. lol OA lang.

But the fact nga akong friend kay nagalibre sa amo or other friends is kinda interesting. But it didn’t last long kay nafindout namo nga mangawat diay sha sa iyang mama para makalibre sa uban. Lol. How sad.

Niadto iyang mother and asked us unsa iyang ginabuhat and then everything was out. Ambot lang unsa iyang consequences sa iyang action.

Mother, i hope i made you proud.

I think ba, unsa kahay kinabuhi nako karon if namiga lang jud ko while nagskwela instead of focusing jud sa akong studies.

If babae ko murag pwede guro ko iinterview sa Jessica Soho as teenage mother.. or worse teenage mother of 5 kids. haha

So i was thankful nga ang gibutang sa akong mind ni mama is to study hard.

It makes sense now nganong i was such a nerd back then. I was so naive and innocent. Though hari ako nang lansangan sa dona christina banawa, Master sa mga larong lansangan (Kay dili pa uso sauna ang mga tablet ug smartphone), pero suki pud ko ug piso-piso nga arcade games though one time giapas ko ni mama kay di ko pwede magdula daw ana kay makabogo daw. She said, if keep playing those kind of games daw, mogamay da akong part sa brain nga nagaskwela and the other big part will be filled with the Mortal Kombat Shenanigans.

Mao na ang reason nga after school, kanang nagwork nako, gibalikan nako akong part nga ganahan ug mga arcade games. Mother, i hope i made you proud.

Isn’t this pic so thrilling!

 

Hokkaido Coldness.

Ayaw ko talaga sa mga malalamig na lugar pero since ganahan man ang akong friends nga moadto so gora nalng pud ko knowing pud nga this might be my last winter in japan nga sure. (There is always a possibility of me going back pero could be dugay pa). // I sound so conyo, i cannot myself. haha

Hokkaido did not disappoint. And God was on our side kay wala niya gipasnow or blizzard sa among whole duration sa Sapporo. Though baga kaayo ang snow sa daplin sa dalan and naai mga times nga moaction ka slide ko pero my angels were always sa akong side to balance me.

This is one of my best trips in Japan jud. Shoutout sa Unlimited seafood! The crab! Unli King Crab! Ang mga galamay jud akong gipapak kay mao may dali kaonon.. Dili ko kabalo mokaon ug lawas sa crab ae.. effort kaayo.

Nagsnowboard pud diay mi sa risutsu (the home of powdered snow). UG lahi ra jud oi. Lahi ra jud ang snow didto.. Murag creamy ice cream. Perfect jud kaayo. With little snowdrop pa jud. Akalain mo.. Feel kaayo namo nga maayo mi magsnowboard atong mga panahona.

And naa pa jud mi mga trip sa kinabuhi nga only kami ra guroi kasabot. Nag Pajama party mi sa hotel nga mura na noon mi ug ga-uniform sa YAYA.  So instead nga Pajama party kay nahimong Yaya’s day-off. The next day was the formal attire trip pud. In my 3 years in Japan, didto pa nako last nasul-ob akong tux hahaha.

IF i would have the time and extra money, I would probably go back (and eat more crabs).

Best part of the Trip: Unli Crabs (SEafoods)
Hatest part: Otaru

Office Di PaStress 方法

Kakita kog post sa FB from a friend asking help kay nastress na daw sha sa office work and naai nagreply didto nga office work is dehumanizing daw blahblah resign nalang daw and find some active work.

Here’s my point of view. Well uu coming from somebody who’s been in the “office work” environment throughout my industry life. Dili man sha ang ana ka bad. In my 6 years in the desk, of kurs dili kalikayan nga mastress kay 8 hrs + ka nagatutok sa monitor. Nagalingkod lang ka permi. So here are my techniques for a better office work life.

  1. Drink a lot of water. Ana man gud sila, mao daw maglabad imong ulo kay wala kay inominom ug tubig. Machurvakels daw imong system, ang circulation sa imong body. Ayaw kalimot nga dili ka cactus nga modraw ug water out of thin air.
  2. Walk. Which makahelp ang first kay if you drink a lot of water, mangihi pud ka often. Winwin.
  3. Smart Phone is your friend.  Learn to procrastinate without damage. If magwork lang jud ka for 8hours, mastress jud ka ana nang bongga. Take a rest pud. Open your phone and socialize to the outside world.
  4. Read articles sa web. Naa toi time sa office nga i told myself : Ready na ko for General Quiz Bowl! Tungod kay daghan na kaayo kog nabasa sa web nga mga trivia etc.
  5. Smile. It helps jud. Bisag naai nagtan-aw or wala. Stress is part mind lang. IT’s all in the mind. Learn to love what you’re doing and smile smile lang. Bahala nag mura kag crazy person smiling alone. And if madala, apili ug smize.

Hope that helps.

P.S. Excited na ko sa among Hokkaido Trip this weekend. haha

Maxine is not BOBO!

I really think nga naoverwhelmed si Maxine to prove her bashers wrong and at the same time trying too hard to impress everyone instead of expressing herself.

Her answer is definitely not one of the best. Murag iyang ganahan isulti is about unity. Something like mas united karon? i don’t really know.

I still like her though. She was impeccable during the show (nga walay labot sa Q&A). Gwapa kaayo siya. I think she had one of the most beautiful and captivating beauty. So sweet and innocent. She reminded me atong Miss Korea kung diin nakadaug si Miss Japan Mori-san. (ug ni coco martin, haha :D)

maxine

Pahuway and take rest Maxine. There is still a very bright future ahead of you.

P.S. Her gown is not so pasabog. But as what i said before, i reviewed some of rhett eala collections and i really didn’t expect something spectacular nga pageant gown. I can say nga more on a minimalist, clean ug pasimple iyang mga designs. Nothing pageant sparkly, lace, drapes, nothing flowy,  but more on good fit and plane jane millionaire. Karemember na noon ko atong pagdaug ni maxine sa bb pilipinas katong violet nga simple ra pud naa pa jud ribbon sa likod nga imho simang slight.

During the big event, the gown didn’t carry Maxine. She was Maxine and shined as Maxine. Mabuhay.
