Dark Side

Standard

Just heard Kelly Clarkson’s Dark Side.  I really like it.

There’s a place that I know
It’s not pretty there and few have ever gone
If I show it to you now
Will it make you run away

Or will you stay
Even if it hurts
Even if I try to push you out
Will you return?
And remind me who I really am
Please remind me who I really am

Everybody’s got a dark side
Do you love me?
Can you love mine?
Nobody’s a picture perfect
But we’re worth it
You know that we’re worth it
Will you love me?
Even with my dark side?

Like a diamond
From black dust
It’s hard to know
It can become
A few give up
So don’t give up on me
Please remind me who I really am

Everybody’s got a dark side
Do you love me?
Can you love mine?
Nobody’s a picture perfect
But we’re worth it
You know that we’re worth it
Will you love me?
Even with my dark side?

Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Just tell me that you will stay
Promise me you will stay
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Just promise me you will stay
Promise me you will stay

Will you love me? ohh
Everybody’s got a dark side
Do you love me?
Can you love mine?
Nobody’s a picture perfect
But we’re worth it
You know that we’re worth it
Will you love me?
Even with my dark side?

Meet Francheska Lee Cabanday, my cousin Carmina’s baby girl.  Before, everytime we see each other, it really takes time before she will take your hand and make mano.  There are times wherein, she will just keep staring at you.  And if you will call him to come to you, she will just stare at you.  But last Saturday, when I arrived in my grandmother’s house after our company summer outing, she immediately greeted me.  (Weeeh! Friends nami.  Hehehe!)  When I entered the house, I offered my hand for her to mano and she took it right away.  She then talked to me, she told me that my cousin Cyril was inside the house.  (So cute.  Hehehe!)  The whole time that we were together, she was so eager to play with me.  That’s the reason why I had the chance to take the above pictures.  I hope the next time we see each other, she will not be labad.  She will stay as friendly as she was on that day.

Summer Outing

Standard

Last Saturday, May 26, we had our company summer outing/team building.  Prior to that day, I was indeed very excited for that day, since that will be my first summer outing here in TSTP.  hehehe!  You can’t blame me to be excited.  I only knew a few people here in my new workplace, so for me, our summer outing was one of the opportunity to meet some of my colleagues.

When I arrived infront of the TGU building on the day of our outing, there were still a few people who arrived.  Faith, one of my colleagues was already there.  While waiting for the bus to arrive, we chatted about traveling.  She also likes to travel like me.  We talked about our travel experience, the places that we have already been to.  She suggested a few places that she has already been to that I should also visit.  After an hour of waiting, the bus then arrived.

Upon arriving in White Sands, we then registered at the front desk so that we could have the food and drinks stub.(hirap na…walang lunch…hehehe…)  After we registered, we again signed another registration which was provided by the facilitators of the activities that we will be having.  Before the activities began, all of us put on some sunblock to protect our skin from the heat of the sun.

The first activity that the facilitators introduced was the Marina and Dugong.  Wherein we were divided into 2 groups.  Group A will be Dugong and Group B will be Marina.  I was in Group B.  The game is simple, Dugong will try to catch Marina.  I really don’t know what’s the purpose of the game.  Next activity was we were divided into four groups.  I was in Group C.  I forgot the name of the game but it has to do with Titanic.  For each group, they should have 1 Captain, 3 Cook, 1 Jack, 1 Rose, 2 Staff, I forgot the role of the other 3 members.  The facilitator will say the boat is sinking save for example 1 cook, Jack and Rose.  So Jack, Rose and 1 cook should not be touch on the ground.  So the option is to carry them.  Since, I was the only girl on the group, I was Rose.  After that activity since, it was already almost 12noon, we then proceeded with our lunch.  Yehey!

The food was so yummy.  I ate a lot.  Hahaha!  One of my colleague commented that now he knows why I am channbear because I eat like a bear.  Hahaha!  By 1PM, the afternoon activities began.  The first activity that we did was, with our group(the 4groups earlier), we should come up with a yell.  While we were brainstorming for our group yell, I suggested that our yell will just be like this, “Yell! Yell! Yell!”.  Hahaha!  One of my colleague laughed so loud that I got shy.  Hehehe!  So I told them to just think of another yell.  Hehehe!

After presenting our yell the next activities that we did was, trust fall, pendulum and cookie dough.  Pendulum and cookie dough is just like trust fall but different type.  Of all the activities that we did, I really like those three.  After the cookie dough, we had a short group sharing about the activities and if we learned something about it.  Since it was already 3PM when the sharing ended, the team building activities was over.  We then had time to go swimming.  Weeeeh.

Overall, the outing was fun.  I had the chance to mingle with my other colleagues.  It was a success for me.  But I did not like the activities that the facilitators gave to us.  But it was okay.

I don’t know his name, but I really find him so cute.  He is the son of one of my colleague.  He visited the office a day before the outing but I did not get to take his picture so when I saw him in the outing, I grabbed the opportunity to take his picture.  Hehehe.

This is Faith.  The colleague that I mentioned above who also loves to travel.

The swimming pool.  Who wouldn’t love to go swimming there?

The weather was really perfect for the outing.

I forgot to ask for their names, but they are the kuya and ate of the cute boy above.

My team lead who was taking a nap.  My colleague Eric, was the one who took this picture.

This is Eric, the culprit.  He really loves his picture to be taken.  He keeps on asking me to take his picture. Hahaha!

When you tell the little girl to smile to the camera, she would really smile.  After you take her picture, make sure to show it to her. She likes that.  Hehehe!

For the Better

Standard

This morning, Kring2x suggested to me a link wherein we can export our blog entries into a pdf file.  I exported my blog and then reread all of the entries that I have wrote.  The first post that I have read is the one wherein I wrote about a time Jaydee and I watched a movie.  I really enjoyed reading the post and at the same time recalling those times.  How different I was back then.  I was a possessive, childish and selfish girlfriend.(well I’m still childish and a little selfish at times.)  If there is one good outcome of our break-up, that would be how I changed for the better.  I am no longer that girl who will obsessed in sending a text message or call his boyfriend to check his whereabouts.  I am no longer that girlfriend whose world only revolves in his boyfriend.  I am no longer that person who throws tantrums everytime a plan won’t push through or will change.  I am no longer that person who always depends or asks for the approval or opinion to every decision I make.  I have already come out of my comfort zone, reach out to my old friends, met new friends and stand on my own.  I make my own decision, live and accept for every consequences if the decision goes wrong.  Live with no regrets and choose to be happy.  That’s my new mantra in life.  So wherever life may take me now, whoever will come and go in my life, I can say that I will be okay.  With my friends and my family on my side, I know that even if how many times I will fall and get hurt, I would still stand up and come out okay.

Keep Forgetting You (to Forget About You) — Jojo

Standard

Na, Na, Noo
Mmmm
Yeah, Yeah

Thinking back when we got together
In our hearts we were saying forever
So in love, boy we were so in love, mmm
Jealousy wasn’t what we wanted, we broke up
And when you looked into my eyes I should of spoke up
And held you near, then I wouldn’t be alone
And here it comes again

Cause I remember every word that you said
It all just keeps spinning around in my head
But it don’t matter what I try to do
I keep on forgetting to forget about you
And I don’t want to think about you baby so much
All the things we did and the way that we touched
Just when I think about someone new
I keep on forgetting to forget about you
Forget about you, forget about
Watch me turn around and forget, forget about you
Forget about me and you

I would be crazy to say that we were perfect
And sometimes I was wondering if it was worth it
But now I see, how could you run from me?
And everytime I drive by your apartment
I get this overwhelming urge to walk in
And see your face and to be in that place all over again

Cause I remember every word that you said
It all just keeps spinning around in my head
But it don’t matter what I try to do
I keep on forgetting to forget about you
And I don’t want to think about you baby so much
All the things we did and the way that we touched
Just when I think about someone new
I keep on forgetting to forget about you
Forget about you, forget about
Watch me turn around and forget, forget about you
Forget about me and you

The way we laughed, the way we kissed
I never though that I would miss
All the things I used to complain about you
The football games, the hometown friends
I’m just glad to see an end
But tell me why I feel so alone without you?
Ooo oh, Oooh, Yeah,
Here it comes again

Cause I remember every word that you said
It all just keeps spinning around in my head
But it don’t matter what I try to do
I keep on forgetting to forget about you
And I don’t want to think about you baby so much
(I don’t want to think about you baby so much)
All the things we did and the way that we touched (we touched)
Just when I think about someone new (new)
I keep on forgetting to forget about you
(I keep on forgetting to forget about you)

Cause I remember every word that you said
It all just keeps spinning around in my head (head)
But it don’t matter what I try to do
I keep on forgetting to forget about you
(I keep on forgetting to forget about you)
Forget about you, forget about
Watch me turn around and forget, forget about you
Forget about me and you

Noo, Oh,
Yeah,
Forget about you

Song Title: Geena’s Song
Words: Alessandra Schiavone
Additional lyrics by: Veronica Deposoy
Arranged by: Chris Ubando

Cold
The lights are low and here
I close my eyes and breathe
Inside your arms i lie,
and i cry

Love
I don’t know what i’m doing wrong
Please tell me what you mean
Don’t go,
I’ve given everything

Tell me everything’s alright
Don’t tell me it’s not right,
And ask me to let go
If loving you is all i know,
Don’t leave me in the cold

Without you it’s not better,
Without you nothing matters,
Nothing matters

Here I lie and i don’t try
to hide the love and still
I die,
It’s something you don’t feel
There’s no use in walking out the door
It’s something to fight for
By tomorrow I’ll love you so much more

One More Time, One More Chance by Masayoshi Yamazaki

Standard

I’m always searching, for your figure to appear somewhere
On the opposite platform, in the windows along the lane
Even though I know you couldn’t be at such a place

I’m always searching, for your figure to appear somewhere
At a street crossing, in the midst of dreams
Even though I know you couldn’t be at such a place

Everywhere I Go(Katharine McPhee)

Standard

It’s funny how you think you really know yourself
Like you would never lose yourself to someone else
And I was up to thinking it was all about you and me
Silly silly me
I should have never listened to a word you said
But I was always giving in to promises
I never should have gone for
I should never long for you no matter how hard it gets
And I want this to be over
I so want this to be through
In the end somehow it always comes back to you

Cause everywhere I go
No matter what I do boy
I just can’t get you out of my head
So it annoys me
(You wasn’t man enough)
To come and tell me
(That I was never the one)
Like you said I was
(You could have told someone)
You knew you didn’t love me anymore

If you had only told me how you really felt
I could have put my feelings into someone else
But I was busy thinkin’ I was where I was supposed to be
Silly silly me
But there was something ’bout you that I couldn’t resist
Can’t put my finger on it but whatever it is
I never should have stood for it
I know you’re no good for me
And that’s the way it is

And I want it to be over
I so want it to be through
In the end somehow it always comes back to you

Cause everywhere I go
No matter what I do boy
I just can’t get you out of my head
So it annoys me
(You wasn’t man enough)
To come and tell me
(That I was never the one)
Like you said I was
(You could have told someone)
You knew you didn’t love me anymore

I tell myself
Get over you
It’s over right
Right thing to do
And just when I thought I was done
You pull me in for another run
I can’t take this
I won’t take this
I can’t do this
I Won’t do it
Even if I know in the end somehow it always comes back to you

Cause everywhere I go
No matter what I do boy
I just can’t get you out of my head
So it annoys me
(You wasn’t man enough)
To come and tell me
(That I was never the one)
Like you said I was
(You could have told someone)
You knew you didn’t love me anymore

Cause everywhere I go
No matter what I do boy
I just can’t get you out of my head
So it annoys me
(You wasn’t man enough)
To come and tell me
(That I was never the one)
Like you said I was
(You could have told someone)
You knew you didn’t love me anymore

Cause everywhere I go
No matter what I do boy
I just can’t get you out of my head
So it annoys me
(You wasn’t man enough)
To come and tell me
(That I was never the one)
Like you said I was
(You could have told someone)
You knew you didn’t love me anymore
