Sky Broadband disappoints

The reason for the lack of activity to this blog, is not because I am slowly being swallowed alive by my 8 to 5. It’s because of the inefficiency of service of this one: We started with high hopes with Sky Broadband–after all, we came from the horrors of having Globe Broadband as our internet…

The Valentine Grinch

And so, it has come to pass that I am safely and securely in the confines of my bed on Valentines night. My hubby has left for work, another night of answering phones. I am not amidst the annoying throngs of masses trying to score a pathetic seat in an overpriced restaurant, my husband is…

TrenSpotting Series: Deodorants–and what it’s for.

I have a question. If you knew you will be sharing space (both maneuver and breathing) with other people, it is polite to use an antiperspirant or deodorant, yes? The new work requires me to ride the MRT at all times — first, because riding the cab every day would put a big dent on…

Christmas Dinner Dilemma

One of the traditions we had as a family is to go out and celebrate Christmas somewhere nice. We have been doing this since we were kids–and back then, it was a simple dinner to fast food joints, a quick round of games to Timezone and then we go home. Somehow, the simple budget my…

Make Facebook moron-free!!!

There are amazing things in this world that one shouldn’t take advantage of, like wealth, the law and even money. One of them is Facebook. Like any other thing of beauty, Facebook–when in the hands of a very stupid and moronic person–becomes cheap, uncouth and at times, even annoying. I decided to unfriend one of…

Why can’t I be the ideal housewife?

I’ve been sitting on the bed for an hour, just staring on the state of chaos that my home is currently in. As mentioned the Hubby and I are currently renting a small room from my parents. With the limited space that we currently have, we manage to cram one creaking bed, two electric fans,…

The Common Colds Survival Kit

I am tempted to name this post: THE SNOT SURVIVAL KIT but a strong sense of decorum and the fact that I am not that SHAMELESS stopped me from doing so. Anyway, since I’ve spilled the beans on the original title of this post, we move on. The reason for the absence of a post…

Masteral woes and blues

I never thought that going back to school could be so hard. As I’ve probably mentioned before, I am in the middle of processing my requirements for my Masteral class. I decided to go back to school after securing the blessings of my other half. So anyway, for today I decided to finally settle the…

Little disappointments and big surprises

I have an annoying habit which I have yet to get rid off. I easily get heartbroken over silly, little things and sometimes, this is due to setting my expectations too high. When I was still dating the Hubby, I asked him not to make promises lightly or set dates just like that: the reason,…

My name is…

So, here I was trying to be a good girl and work (in spite the fact that Mr. G is on sick leave, and thus we do not have a “bantay”, hence today is inde-f@cking-pendence day in the department) when I received this email from our branch in Cebu: Hi Mel, Please see pix of…
