Aqui's Study: tunog ng mga hayop

Isa sa mga bagay na lino-look forward ko pag weekend eh yung bonding moments namin ni Aqui. Inaasam ko ang mga oras na magkasama kami kasi babad ako sa trabaho mula lunes hanggang fried-day.

Nasa nursery na si Aqui kaya whenever I can, I always sit with him and get myself updated kung anong level na sa mga lessons nila ang natututunan niya. 

Lesson: Animal Sounds

Ako: Sige kuya. Tingnan ko nga kung saan na kayo sa klase nyo. 

(Check sa books)

Ako: Nasa animal sounds na pala kayo. Good! Testing natin. 

(Aqui with a very enthusiastic look)

Babala: Nasa Cebuano ang mga sagot ni Aqui. Pinawisan ako kung paano to itranslate.

Anong tunog nito? 


Aqui: 'mmmmooooooooo... mooooooo...'

TAMA! (Sabay palak-pak.)


Aqui: (with the loud and hard voice) 'e-ru! e-ru!'
Translation: 'a-so! a-so!'

Ako: .... (no comment)


Aqui: (soft, girly voice) 'eeeennngggg. 'eeeeennngg'

Ako: .... (no comment ulit)


Aqui: 'honk!' (nasal sound) 'honk!'

Ako: Kuya, sure ka ba na ito yung tinuturo sa school?

Aqui: Oo naman dad! Galing ko noh?

sigh. Kung ito yung tinuturo sa iskool, sobrang dehado naman ako sa tuition. Amp.

Kaya, guro-guroan ang labas ko nung weekend. Good thing is sa animal sounds lang talaga kami nag concentrate. Ok na yung colors, shapes, sizes, A-E-I-O-U and writing.

Napaisip tuloy ako. 

Anong klaseng estudyante kaya ako nung nursery? Naku, yari!

it's all about timing.

Timecheck. 01:17AM MNL Time

Sobrang naging busy-busyhan ako dito sa opisina ngayon. Andaming mga putring changes ang nangyayari. Ewan ko kung makaka-catch pa ako. Medyo nakakalungkot pero kayod pa rin. Go lang ng go. Lumulubo na ang tiyan ko sa kakaupo. Sinubukan ko namang tumayo kaso napagod ako. Kaya balik na naman sa pag-upo. Ank!

Anyhoo babaloo. Dahil nga kakapagod maging corporate slave aka pokpok, naisip ko, sa sobrang tagal kong naghihintay ng chance na maka-moveforward sa jackpot round, baka kalawangin tong inuupuan ko't bumigay na ang pwet ko. take note, hindi ang silya ang bibigay. bakit kaya. hmmm..

For sure, mas madami ding naghihintay ng kanilang spotlight kaso give-it-your-all-as-in-your-all naman ako palagi tuwing nagsisimula na ang show. hay, ewan ko ba.

Buti nalang at may mga chance na makapag-unwind. hooo. share ko lang ang nabasa kong saying. 

....the unreachable becomes reachable, 
the unavailable become available, 
the unattainable... attainable. 
Have the patience, wait it out, it's all about timing.

ito pala yung pinagkakaabalahan ko recently tuwing lunch breaks. nakikijoin din naman si tabian. kaso, juan tamad (sobrang nag react kasi juanita tamad ang palayaw na naisip ko.) kasi si ate. amp.

thank you tabian sa picture. (binatukan pa ako. dapat daw starring ang engot)


wag magpalinlang. 
Babae. Nag-bike. 
Nag-papicture. Sira ang bike.

Wag nyong isipin na si tabian yan. swear. hindi si tabian yan. ano ba. hindi nga kasi eh.

on Riz's Burp-day..

Funny how time flies so fast sometimes that we don't even notice the gravity of each event. One day you meet this awesome girl who turned everything tupsy-turvy, the next you're out with her on your 4th date, eye-to-eye, basking in the endless feeling of ecstacy. It's so incredible that the sad part is we only realize it when it has gone by. That is why it's so important to treat each day as a blessing, a gift of existence, and celebrate life no matter how chaotic the world is getting. 

At this point, I suppose it's better for you to skip read. I don't expect anyone to continue reading full blown entries about fidgety, high-strung experiences. :)

Each celebration is neither dependent on how you much you've spent for the gifts nor how many guests there are. It's mainly about seizing the chance to be in this zone of euphoria, in the state of gratitude for another day to loiter around earth. The best way is to spend it with people who matters, who you truly enjoy the company of. What better way to celebrate the day you got shoved out into the world than with friends, family and simple pleasures.

September 1 is one of the most noted dates for me, as it's the day that my stars finally get into alignment with another to wait for the biggest mystery in the universe; the day my General Riz ruptured her Mudra's V******* and sang that aweful baby-cry hello to the world. :)

I decided to beat the drum through simple things we enjoy doing - strolling, window-shopping, street food and ice cream. The day started with giving thanks to Daddy Jess in Basilica del Sto NiƱo, followed by strolling around downtown Cebu (Colon) for cheap buys and quick laughs over stupid things people do. >:B We were to end it with a quick visit by the grocery for icecream and chips but I thought it won't be complete without a small surprise. You see, I love creating surprises for her. (not the other way around) I love the way she reacts, how her noise crinkles the moment the surprise pops out and that 'oh-you-shouldn't-have-but-thanks-anyway look she gives with a sweet smile. So I commissioned just a few of her close friends - the bunch she always has fun with even with just a stick of fishball and a mouth-ful of stories. I couldn't stop feeling anxious. It is crucial that she does not detect that I'm planning something or else the whole surprise is off. But with all the nerves in me so undoubtedly shivering, I couldn't help but be excited at the fact that any moment now the surprise will unfold. And yes it did, boy was she ecstatic to see the girls. Pizza, cake and an umpteen amount of laughs didn't just made the surprise successful. It was the company. The fact that you spend special moments with 'SPECIAL' people.

Sooo Highschool. Group Name: GALZ :B
After the small get-together, it was evident that General was a happy camper. We went straight home, slept to recuperate from the shift that was and enjoyed 'The Adventures of Pureza Queen of the Riles' and ''Ang Babae sa Septic Tank', with Ice Cream. 

The next day off we go to Bantayan Island to get high on the sun, sand and sea. Spent her birthday with most special and important person in our lives - Aqui. Good thing was that Aqui got my addiction of the beach. The weather was uber unpredictable but it didn't stop us from flipping over the water.

bagong gising :B
lil beach bum
with the birthday girl...
with my beach babe.. XD

When we got back home, I couldn't help but wonder how General thought of the past 3 days we spent.

She said, 'This is what I always thought of spending my birthday. Simple and with people who matters most...' 

I love that about her. Low maintenance and easy to please. I always love arranging surprises for her. I just hope I don't get too predictable the next time I do it.

After 2 weeks, I finally finished this entry. Another whirlwind of changes have shook my stay in the office. I'm back to taking in calls so I'm afraid I won't be able to visit nor blog that much often.

I don't know if my entries matter to you but writing keeps my brain working. Being a corporate slave is a boring job. Monotonous. Blah. However, I'm at peace at the fact that there are still some perks working here. 

UPDATE: I'm beginning to feel the itch again. Thank Daddy Jess for a new hobby. Blog about it soon. Nieco Out..

...Thank you for calling L*****k Tech Support. This is Nieco. Can I have your Service Request # please......
