Very amusing

I really find it very amusing for a government to promote metal music in
their country. For In Flames, Sweden has been kind enough to do such a

Imagine, In Flames has won the Swedish government's exportations award at
the Swedish Grammy Awards. It's the first time a metal band to receive an
award like this.

As Swedish economy minister had said, "Thanks to In Flames, Sweden now has a
metal band in the absolute world elite"

Whoa!!! A lot of good things have been happening to me for the past 24
hours. First, I was able to get my replacement for my iPod Shuffle. It
only took 4 weeks for Apple Singapore to replace it. It was good as new.
Second, I got a very good offer from a friend which I've been dreaming since
grade 5. I'm so excited and I hope things will go ok. I just have to wait
and negotiate. And third, I was able to see Era whom I've been having a
hard time looking for her.

I'm very much overwhelmed and I'm just thankful to the Lord for all the
blessings. Thank you Lord.

Heart's day was such an event, that even our office had some heart shaped
red and pink balloons on tables (except mine). It was a busy day for me
that I never realized its atmosphere until I saw the glow of everybody. I
was out to do some technical task to two of its branches, Matina and Panacan,
and I was somewhat exhausted. It was the day where I could meet someone
whom I could date (breaking my usual Anti V Day day)

It was almost 8 pm when I went out from the office. I was getting ready to
meet my date as I was trying to condition myself in believing this Heart's

There were 2 complete strangers and a day old friend. I was expecting the
"others" would just do their graceful exit so I could get into the business.
Worse, we went out together. I tried to be civil but I was again beginning
to become a wolf in a sheep's wool. It was really a struggle to become
civil with them.

As expected, it was just plain, un-mawkish and very "dry". I was expecting
more of a conversation type of meet.

I'm just glad to have In Flames, Soilwork, Trivium and Shadows Fall in my
iPod. They really kept my sanity intact.

In Flames' Come Clarity

Finally, I got myself In Flame’s latest album, Come Clarity. Dubbed by critics as In Flame’s greatest work to date, I hurriedly uploaded it to my iPod.

Another new thing to keep my sanity intact.

change of plans

I think my game plan would be on halt. I'll be having a date tomorrow.
Hahahaha. I don't know how things would go but I just have to let things
get into their places.

Anti V Day day

Heart's day is getting near and I realized how empty that day would be. I
don't know how things will get through but I just have to stick to my usual
Heart's day game plan, an Anti Heart's Day day.

Ever since I got attracted to my crushes, I was always hoping to spend that
day with them, thinking I would have a romantic and mawkish celebration.
But in blue hell, I never had a chance to celebrate.

First, when I was in grade 5, she explicitly expressed her attraction to our
classmate. She knew that she was my crush and telling me that she's into
somebody, it was the worst feeling.

Second, during the Junior and Senior's Prom, my crush was also into someone.
I end up eating sandwiches.

Third, when I was in third year college, it was an Armageddon. It was a
firm "No". I just went home feeling sorry.

Since those things, my Heart's Day was redefined. It was "Love Stinks".
How in heaven's name can I get into that day with somebody?

*sigh. Ratatatatatatattttttttt

Joss Stone

I'm in the mood for Joss Stone. I just uploaded her Soul Sessions and Mind,
Body and Soul songs on my iPod and it's quite a trip.

From Metal to Blues, this is great.

...Getting feedback

Almost an hour later from my post, I think, I’m not alone.

Here's a link from DavaoSale



I got this thing from yasser guro [] in reference to my
Mang Inasal blog...the EXACT thing.

u made comments without knowing the real taste of mang inasal...who you
think you are to give any critisism????why dont you give first your feedback
to know what???your talking it??


Hmmm.Who am I? Well, I was one of the customers and I was not happy about
the service (your crew promised 15 minutes and I waited 32 minutes) and the
taste of "your inasal". I'm an Ilonggo and I know how an Inasal taste like.
Just don't give me your definition of "Inasal". I just find it weird and
an insult to me, as an Ilonngo, dubbing it as "Inasal".

Do customers like me don't have the right to criticize? Noy (Ilonggo
), it's my blog and I was not happy with my stay there at Mang Inasal.

If I talked non-sense, why react?

Feedback? Do you have the venue for it? There was no suggestion box (maybe
you're putting one now) or any friendly looking supervisor or manager to
give my comments. All I saw was a busy service crew and a fat boy frowning
at the counter (I think he's the supervisor or manager and he's SCARY). I
wasn't even treated special on my stay there. I guess you just have to add
"Customer Service" on your list.

I also find it weird from a service oriented establishment like you to pin
down customers like me. If somebody or anybody is not happy with what your
store has, you better do your homework. Just make it better. And please,
don't forget to SMILE. (Attention!!! Fat Boy).

With a reaction from yasser guro [] of Mang Inasal, this
would scare the customers. Maybe you just want a positive feedback.

...right track, emptiness

It’s the first day of the month and things are getting to its track. I have already installed the computerized bundy clock in the cooperative and so far, I’m happy with the results. I know I just have to do some fine tuning but it’s really nice to have it started the right way.

I’m somewhat overwhelmed to this heart’s month. I’ve been in the “Anti-V Day” since high school and I think I just have to continue my tradition. No dates, no love, no celebration. After all, I never had a girlfriend to celebrate with.

Anyway, I must get into my things. I just hate the thought of being happy where emptiness devours me.
