Chivalry is Dead

Argh. I rode the LRT2 (Purple Line) a few weeks ago and I was very disgusted.

I was first in line while I was waiting at the platform but as soon as the train arrived, three men cut my way as I acted to step into the train. I didn't mind that, I thought that perhaps they're impatient kinds of people who can't stand slow-moving people like me. As I was standing inside the train (there were no more seats for me), I got more pissed when I realized that most of the seats were taken by men--and I don't mean old, disabled men--these are either college men or yuppies who are oh-so-comfortably seated with their legs apart. I don't really mind standing up--I sit on my butt the whole day at work, and I feel I am a young, strong and healthy woman. What I DO mind is that these guys (I decided not to call them MEN for they don't act like one) are actually ignoring the senior citizens, old ladies and pregnant women who are standing RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM. And they pretend to be so engrossed with the music that's playing on their iPod or phone to even notice that these ladies are carrying a lot of stuff they bought from Divisoria.

Whatever happened to chivalry?

"I Resign!"

Today, I filed my resignation from Hinduja TMT, Ltd. (formerly C-cubed). My last day as a Recruitment Assistant will be on December 8th. I'll be taking on another exciting and challenging job starting December 11th.

I will spill about this new job as soon as I have a taste of it. My excitement and joy in getting this opportunity matches my sadness to leave the recruitment team of HTMT. But then I can't just sit there knowing I could've experienced and learned something new (if not better) somewhere else.

Let's pray that things will work out fine in my new job.

It's Christmas at Starbucks

Don't fret, I still know how to write. I was pretty busy with work, family, and my dancing career lately and I found little or no time to write an entry.

But now I'm back, and so as the Starbucks Christmas beverages!


We had a blast at the Trick or Treat event held at our office last Halloween, and me and my (dorky) officemates almost forgot about the Starbucks Christmas Traditions Card.

Now we're drowning ourselves with coffee just to fill up our cards with stickers, and get the Starbucks 2007 planner. I am missing my Black Forest Mocha Ice Blended -Decaf and No Sugar Added from Coffee Bean, but I want to get my Starbucks card over with as soon as possible. Can't wait to have it! Harrrr...
