Last March 8 was my 22nd birthday. My dad had lunch with me at terriyaki boy in Banawe. Too bad my bro and my mom wasn't there because my mom stayed in the office because she needs to be there all the time, and my brother was in school. Well, after dinner, I went to the office and my teammates and officemates greeted me :) Also, my friends, both college and high school greeted me also. I also received a greeting from her. She greeted me by leaving a message in my yahoo messenger. I don't know if I'm feeling bad because I didn't greet her on her birthday last January. Well, a part of me is telling me that I should have greeted her. But a part of me is telling me that I did the right thing. Because I'll admit that I'm disappointed that everything didn't work out so well. And the all the reasons that she gave me, for me was unacceptable. Well, okay, I'll admit that I got mad at that time at her that's why I didn't greet her. Why greet someone if you're not greeting her whole-heartedly, right? Don't know what I should have done. Well, past is past. Everything's in the past.
Fast-forward to March 10 (Saturday). Joyce, Sheena, and I treated our barkada to dinner at avenido's . I should have gone earlier so that the food was still hot. But I went to the gym and finished around 7:20. Went to Greenbelt parking to leave my bad and back again to Glorietta. On the way, I met a lot of Atenean friends. (Ritz, Rica, Ellaine, and Kris). I arrived at the restaurant and the food was already cold. After dinner, five of us went to watch 300. (Lawrence, Louise, Tim, Bry, and me). The movie was awesome! Even though it had so much gore and violent scenes. But the movie was awesome! :) I suddenly remembered Mr. David Lozada when he was discussing this historical event during History 18 class. Story telling was Dave Lozada's style of teaching. Imagine, it has been 3 yrs and I still remember some of his story. Wow! Haha! Well, that's all for now :)

Finished training today at the 88 Corporate Center in Makati. It's a two day training on how to give an effective presentation. I learned a lot from the training. Well, usually, when I present. I always stutter. I don't know why. Maybe because I'm nervous. I found out that people transfer there nervousness onto something. Sometimes a speaker may lean on the table. He's transferring his nervousness onto the table. Or sometimes a speaker leans on the wall, he's again, transferring his nervousness onto the wall. Cool huh! :) Also, in creating a powerpoint presentation, you first have to create your introduction first and then your conclusion second. I was surprised to learn that conclusion is the second thing that you have to do. I always thought that the body of the powerpoint presentation should be the second thing that you have to do after the introduction. Guess I was wrong :) Tomorrow, I'll go to the gym at 10 am. By the way, I'm enrolled at Gold's gym since this is one of HP's benefits. For me, I think Fitness First is better than Gold's Gym. Well, the C.R. at Fitness First is more beautiful that the C.R. at Gold's Gym. Haha! Another day of work tom. :) My teammate and I will treat our whole team tom. I'm treating my team because it's my birthday on Thurs., and my other teammate is treating because she's celebrating the release of the new version of our project :) It's going to be a fun day tom.! :) Too bad that I'm not bringing a car anymore tom. I sure wish that I have a CR-V. That's my dream car :) hahaha! Now, there's a 65,000 pesos discount for the old model, but brand new CR-V. I'm convincing my dad to buy the CR-V instead of the Civic. Dunno why. But I like CR-V more than the new Civic. haha! :) That's all for now :)

It's been a really, really long time since I've written on my blog. So much has changed since I last wrote on my blog. Graduated BS Computer Science from the Ateneo de Manila last October 2006. Went to Hong Kong for a 2 week long vacation :) By the way, I love Hong Kong! Haha! Now working for a month in HP :) And will soon be celebrating my birthday on Thurs. (March 8). Wow! I'm already 22! I'm getting older and older by the year! That's all for now! :)
