draw a pig

Saw this personality test on drawing a pig in my SIL’s blog… I tried it out (It’s obvious i have no talent in drawing). You will be asked to draw a pig and answer some questions and my results are:

1. I’m a realist
2. I believe in tradition, are friendly, and remember dates (birthdays, etc.)
3. I’m emotional and naive, I care little for details and a risk-taker.
4. I’m secure, stubborn, and stick to my ideals.
5. I’m an OK listener
6. I drew a medium sized tail… what does it mean? Go to the site to know… :p

i seldom watch tv lately. most of the time, when i get home from work, i just eat dinner then go to bed. we have a tv in the kitchen and that’s the only time i do get to watch tv (while having dinner).

i was so surprised to see the new san miguel beer pale pilsen commercial. it had jet li in it (aside from other famous filipino personalities). i know his martial arts skill wasn’t maximized/used better in the ad but i really think he was so cute in it. esp. with that haircut! ang cute talaga!

eniwei, wanna see for yourself? just click play

it has been a stormy week. last friday i was supposed to go home right after work. but my crew on night shift told me the traffic going home was really terrible. so i decided to drop by my officemate’s birthday party, which was a few minutes’ walk away from the office. i thought, why waste time stuck in traffic for probably 2 hours, when i can have a little fun at the party — which really is an inuman (people in a table sharing drinks).

food was sumptious (inihaw na liempo, inihaw na tilapia, etc —- native delicacies which i think are a staple in any inuman). stories shared were really funny. one officemate volunteered to take me home, which i thought was nice. he said we’ll go home in a couple of hours. after about an hour or a little more than that, he went missing. i thought he went home already. but i discovered he just had a nap.

the couple of hours stretched to 4 actually. i had a few beers, which was normal. then when it was time to go home, my officemate was there again. he said he would take me home. the others volunteered to convoy with us.

it really was a rainy night. the streets were all wet. but when it was time to go, the rain had stopped already. so there i rode with my officemate. we were just cruising actually. when we were almost near my house, there was this pick-up who sideswept us.

so there i was, enjoying the cool night. and all i could think of was: ‘shiyet, i think this is my time!’ you see, i was in a motorcycle (without a helmet, at that). i think i saw my world blurred. next thing i remember was my officemate hugging me and asking me if i was alright. and i really couldn’t answer him immediately, for i haven’t checked. after that, i did. and i thought everything was alright with me. but i checked with him and i saw his leg was bruised and so was one of his hands. good thing the only thing that was hurt during that accident was my bag (which can be easily replaced). one of my officemates ran after the pick-up actually, but he didn’t catch up with it.

so we continued on home. when we got there, our house was submerged in water (due to the nonstop rains last week). what else could we do? i invited them over for a cup of our famous kapeng barako. i was so sorry that i allowed them to bring me home. all the time after the incident, i was thinking it would never’ve happened if i just went home alone and rode the public utility vehicle —-the jeepney. i kept saying sorry to them. but they said they should be the one saying sorry.

imagine we were really in a cruising speed that night, really slow (probably around 30 kph). we all ended up thinking that no matter how careful a driver you are, you can never be sure of your safety in the road.

when i went inside, my mom was still awake. i told her about the incident. and she told me again (for the nth time) not to ride on motorcycles. esp. without a helmet on. i told her, from now on, i won’t (learning the hard way, huh). before going to bed, i really thanked the lord (which i seldom do), for keeping me unharmed during that accident.

the day after, my body was really sore, probably from the fall. and i discovered i had a very very minor bruise on my waist. but then again, im thankful that was all i got.

eversince i was of age to go riding on motorcycles, my mom always forbid me to ride one. when i was in college, and she learned i hitched with my friend on his bike, she would scold me. i guess it stems from her cousin who was killed in a motorbike accident (with a bus, i think). i’d always thought she was over reacting. but maybe it was simply maternal. no mom would want their kids harmed really. i’m just really sorry i didn’t listen to her. and thankful also that the learning experience didn’t result to any major harm (on my part).

What is your favorite kind of pie?

Not much of a pie lover. No faves.


Soup

Name something that made you smile this week.

Not just smile but grin a really big grin — something my aunt gave me before she left for the states. [Major thanks tita prency!!!]


Salad

What do you do to cool off when the weather is hot and humid?

Take a shower. Would’ve loved to jump into a pool though, but we don’t have one.


Main Course

You receive $1,000 in the mail with a letter that says you can only use the money to redecorate one room in your home. Which room do you pick, and what do you buy to spruce it up?

Our kitchen. I’d rebuild it. Most of the walls and the ceiling are in really bad shape.


Dessert

Fill in the blank: My boyf says for me to stop smoking, but I still do, promise before the year ends, I will!

Two of my dear friends are both LEOs. Their birthdays are a little more than a week apart. I miss both of them way too much already. We’re all in the same country and could easily see each other, but probably due to our busy lives, we don’t get to do that often. Actually, we don’t get together at all lately. The last time I saw them both was during Nina’s 1st birthday party (she’s Redj’s tiny one). I always try to set up a date so we could at least have a meal or something, but alas, our schedules don’t match… I hope we could get together more. It’s frustrating actually, when I think of it… It’s as if we’re in different countries — the way we don’t get to see each other. I miss the days in college, where we always spend our free times together (including my cousin Dada). Most of the time we sleep at Redj and Rhods’ apartment.
I love it that we’ve kept in touch with each other. But I certainly regret that we don’t see each other more. What we mostly do now is send each other text messages to remind each other that we’re still around… Haay… I miss them both so much. To Redj and Rhods —- HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I wish (am still wishing) that we could at least go out to celebrate your birthdays!
