If you think you have an overprotective father, think again. Earlier this day, when we were about to lunge into the cool waters, our dear daddy whipped out a long piece of rope and told us to hold one end so that in case we go too far out, he can pull us back.

It would’ve been pretty funny had he not been serious.

We were lucky since he listens to reason—although this didn’t keep him from standing guard by the water’s edge, monitoring how we swam. When I swam a little farther away, he’d tell me to come back, after which I abruptly stood up to show him that the water was only chest level (and we all know how shallow that would be considering my height).


Photoshop blues

Currently listening: Regina Spektor – Apres Moi
Location: North Luzon Express Way


I’m starting to love it. I’m currently banging away at my laptop. After this, I’ll continue reading the Photoshop CS2 for Dummies ebook that I downloaded last year. Never mind that my laptop has Photoshop CS3. Hee. Anyone has an ebook of that one?

I’m such a pirate.

Well, yeah. I promised myself that I’d finally learn how to use that dratted Photoshop. After all, I can’t rely on Bong and Harrell forever for my Photoshop needs—sorry guys!

Who could’ve known Siomai, our dear hamster, would do well today. Well, not really entirely well; but well enough. The thing with her is that she will turn left/right depending on where she hears the sound of either the bell or the buzzer. I made it so that when the buzzer sounds, it’s on my left side (the hamster will turn right) and that I’d ring the bell on my right. And it worked. Until the prof told me to ring the bell on my left :/


Well he told us that if we want an excellent on the learning project, the hamster should consistently follow and discriminate between the sounds. Eep. Well, I was satisfied with whatever he gave us. I hope my groupmates feel the same way!

With a hamster who looks like a sewer rat, who wouldn’t be depressed?

(Considering that I’m scared of rats. And she always bites me.)

My father does this wonderful calligraphy. I mean, whenever he doesn’t have anything to do (which happens a lot lately), he’d just grab at all these brushes and his inks.

But the thing that I don’t understand is this: how come the uglier the calligraphy, the more “beautiful” it is. (Well ugly for me)

Like this afternoon, he showed me this book with fat characters and fading edges in the strokes (err. I can’t explain it!) and told me, “It’s really beautiful, isn’t it?”

And gave him a flat out no.

Apparently, I don’t have taste. That, and my “inability” to appreciate art! (ART?) :D



Actually, it’s not really. We still have an animal show on the 29th but that’s it!


You hear me?

And Bong’s going to be backpacking to Sagada with some of our other friends! And I don’t think I can go! Plus, so expensive O_O I just spent a lot on my mac! Ack.

So my itinerary:

March 29-30: Zambales with family. We’re going to sleep at my dad’s friend’s house or something

March 31-April 1: BATANGAS! Cove something? I forgot the place’s name! Beach! Woot. (Okay, not so woot since I gained a lot of weight but I don’t plan on swimming so yay for frisbee!)

Belated Happy Easter

For Tingal

For my dear Tingal.

We finally finished our Psych 115 final paper. I met up with my groupmates earlier this day to meet at Starbucks Katipunan.

My family picked me up and we ate at Luk Foo, a Cantonese restaurant — my dad’s treat :)

went to Ateneo the other day to pick up my NEW Macbook! :) Now my mom wants one too. I even enabled the router. Now if I can only get the router to be restricted to only the laptop, my cellphone and our desktop; else, anyone who can access our wifi can use our internet. NOOOO… ._. Teach me?

I now love the photobooth! :)
