Poor Kitty


I found this cat at a pet shop in Tiendesitas. It was a heartbreak for me not to have taken him home. Look at his eyes! It says, "Take me home!" Taken February 2006.

Casa Manila


Casa Manila in Intramuros. (View from Barbara's restaurant). This place allowed me to experience the ancient Manila that I have only read about in Noli Me Tangere. I would've loved to live in that era.

Coco Beach


Shore of Coco Beach Island, Puerto Galera. June 2006. I spent the Independence Day weekend on a trip there with my friends a few weeks after we spent the Labor Day weekend at the very busy White Beach. Coco beach was a far cry--it was so peaceful and serene! I blogged about our adventures in my online journal: More Today Than Yesterday.

Small Boy, Big Sea


My nephew as he plays by the beach of Laiya, Batangas. Taken on Summer of 2007 using my cousin's overpriced Sony Alpha dSLR camera. I absolutely had no idea how to use it, but it was fun and I'd definitely put that on my wishlist. ;)

Fake Flower


This is an artificial flower from an artificial tree. Lol. I found it at Barbara's Restaurant in Intramuros Manila. The food there, by the way, is definitely worth coming back for!

Strawberry Margarita


TGI Friday's Ultimate Strawberry Margarita. Yum! Took this photo using my old Nokia 1.3 megapixel camera phone. The photo is tricky--the glass looks small but this is more than enough alcohol for one small lady like me! :)

Battleground


Ruins of Mile-Long Barracks at Corregidor Island. I took this photo on June 2007 during a company-sponsored trip to the Island with my officemates. I have blogged about this trip in more detail in my previous post: Trip to Corregidor Island.

More Today Than Yesterday

I have noticed on my site stat reports that quite a number of people who stumbled upon my blog were those who typed the title of this song on the Google search box. I bet they were disappointed that this is not a site about that classic-Spiral Starecase-revived-by-Goldfinger song.

Because I am relatively young, I haven't heard of this song before until I watched The Waterboy again quite recently. I didn't even know it was a remake! I don't like mushy songs much--in fact, I don't like anything mushy at all--but this is one of the songs that give me these mushy feelings. (YUCK!) I have then decided that it's the perfect title for my blog. So much about creativity and originality! Haha.

Anyway, I have uploaded Goldfinger's version on my Multiply account should you want to listen to it or download it. You may want to sing along too. =D
More Today Than Yesterday
- Spiral Starecase/Goldfinger

I don't remember what day it was
I didn't notice what time it was
All I know is that I fell in love with you
And if all my dreams come true
I'll be spending time with you

Every day's a new day in love with you
With each day comes a new way of loving you
Every time I kiss your lips my mind starts to wander
And if all my dreams come true
I'll be spending time with you

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But, darling, not as much as tomorrow

Tomorrow makes springtime's just a day away
Cupid, we don't need ya now, be on your way
I thank the Lord for love like ours that grows ever stronger
And if all my dreams come true
I'll be spending time with you

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But only half as much as tomorrow

Everyday's a new day, everytime I love you
Everyday's a new way, everytime I love you

Puerto Galera Sunset


Since I am on it, I have decided to post another sunset photo. I took this using a humble Nikon digital camera on the Summer of 2006 at the White Beach, Puerto Galera. And boy, I am already missing summer!

Boatman


I can't remember if it's me or my brother who took this photo. It was taken during our 15-minute boat ride from the Coral Gardens back to the White Beach (Puerto Galera). This was just taken using a Sony Ericsson camera phone. Nice, yes?

I Love Starbucks


A hot Peppermint Mocha and a Mocha Frapuccino from Starbucks. I love my coffee--hot or iced. :) This was taken Christmas last year, using my beloved camera phone. Starbucks Christmas = Warm feelings. Yum.

Orange Chair


This is an upholstery of a seat at a new steak house in Blue Wave Marikina. They are the most horrible steak house ever (I won't mention their name) but I like their chairs anyway. 

Update: the steak house finally met its doom and has closed. Lol.

Stranded

I did not go to work today. I am stranded inside our house because once again, Karangalan Village's streets are flooded with water. Due to the heavy rains that's been pouring nonstop since yesterday morning, it's now impossible for me to go out without getting soaked. Thanks to the internet and the television, I think I can entertain myself for a day. I am so glad this typhoon did not cause power outage, at least not in our town.


I am over-indulging myself with Friendster and Multiply profiles of people I know. I have also tried to do some work from home but I can only do so much without my work phone and Outlook. It's even more difficult to do that when I smell food cooking every couple of hours and knowing that my bed is just a few steps away.

This is fun, just bumming all day and doing no-brainer tasks. However, another day of lounging around like this and I am sure I would go mad! I certainly hope that the weather gets better and that the flood would subside so I can go back to my normal, geeky weekday.
