Jin,

Ewan ko ba sa iyo, nagpapakatanga ka na naman sa isang taong hindi ka kaya mahalin. Kakatapos mo lang sa isang break-up at heto hindi pa nga lumilipas ang isang buwan. Sinusubukan mo na naman at iniisip mo makakahabol ka bago magpalit ang taon. Tanga-tanga mo pa rin hanggang ngayon. Resulta yan ng kaka-daydream mo. Iniisip mo, katulad ng isang fairy tale na naman ang kwento mo na maganda ang katapusan.

Hindi ka na bata, at hindi totoo ang nababasa mo dun. Magising ka sa realidad. Sa ilang taon nilang pinagsamahan, talagang malalim na ang attachment sa kanya ng kasintahan niya. At nung nakipaghiwalay ito sa kanya, iniisip mo naman na ikaw ang lalapitan. Asa ka pa. Tanga. Hindi ka na natuto, diba nangyari na sa iyo yan dati. Between you or yung isang matagal na niyang nakasama. At sino ang iniwan sa ere? Diba ikaw din?

Anu ba kailangan ko gawin sa iyo at hindi ka rin natuto sa mga naganap sa buhay mo. Move on na. Ginawa mo na ang makakaya mo sa pag-aakalang makakakuha ka kahit man lang simpatya mula sa kanya. Kaso, talagang hindi ka niya mukuhang (o di kaya subukan man lang) mahalin. Sapat na iyong ginawa mo na ang lahat para i-comfort siya sa panahon na sobrang down siya. Nasa sa kanya na lang iyon, kung ma-realize ba niya na dapat binigyan ka niya ng pagkakataon na mahalin.

Sabi ng ka officemate mo diba, maraming isda sa karagatan. Hindi ka mauubusan at makakabingwit kapa ng isdang para sa iyo. Kaya iwanan mo na ang parte ng libro na yan tsong. Matanda ka na. Alam mo na kung ano ang tama at mali.

Top 10 Employees New Year Resolution

4 Reaction(s)
1. I will work smarter. Can you identify three things you can do to be more efficient and effective in your current job? Is your staff spending too much time on e-mail, for example? Too much time returning phone calls? Does it interrupt their work too frequently? Sometimes, those job inefficiencies are not very obvious. However, if they can specifically identify them, then those inefficiencies can be eliminated and staff can become more productive. This can increase work satisfaction as well.


2. I will increase my working network in and out of my immediate area and inside and outside my company. Can you encourage your staff to get to know more people? Can you meet more people not just to say hello, but to find out what they do, how they do it and what skills they use to be productive? Let them know about your traits, abilities and interests, too. Ask yourself if you can you interact with them to mutually benefit both your jobs. Can you include them in your circle of contacts so that you can call on them when you need a favor, a contact, or a reference? The reverse should be true as well.

3. I will find three things that I can do to make myself irreplaceable. Why should the company continue to employ you? Why are you good at what you do? Does the company know this? What else should the company know about you? In times of layoffs or terminations, why should the company keep you while dismissing others? If you cannot answer these questions during economic hard times, in particular, your name could easily be included in any "termination group."

4. I will find ways to get along better with my boss and colleagues. Manage upward. If your boss is not managing you well enough or to your liking, then find positive, non-complaining ways to change this situation so that you are able to share your views with him or her. Do you need more (or less) direction, supervision, freedom, responsibility or authority? What can colleagues be doing more of, less of or doing differently to create a more positive working environment that meets organizational goals? Speak up and make sure your voice is heard.

5. I will join at least one company-wide task force or committee. Do people outside of your immediate group, team or unit know your capabilities, interests and skills? Do you know what is happening in other sectors of our company? Do you know the challenges and opportunities faced by people elsewhere in our organization? By joining committees, you not only gain a broader view of the company's goals and issues, you also challenge your own skills, abilities, and knowledge and increase your networking impact.

6. I will join a professional organization in my area. Life and work are about growing and developing yourself. What have you done for yourself lately? Have you met like-minded colleagues who share some of your hopes, dreams, and goals? Do not miss this important opportunity to learn more about your profession while increasing the breadth and depth of your networking circle.

7. I will take a job-related self-improvement seminar. Are there new techniques, tools and concepts that you need to know about to constantly make yourself into a more important and irreplaceable employee? When is the last time you stimulated your own thinking and gained new perspectives on your job and future? A seminar may very well be the stimulus you need to re-energize yourself and increase your job satisfaction.

8. I will develop four goals to help me grow and develop as a more achievement-oriented employee. Stagnation is the kiss of death in today's corporate economy, where layoffs and downsizing occur daily. So, think seriously about what you can do to be more achievement-oriented in addition to taking a seminar and joining a professional group. Do you want to assume more responsibility in your job? Form or chair a taskforce? Rethink and improve a product, policy, or procedure? Create monthly, open-door meetings with the boss. Be creative.

9. I will evaluate my personal contribution to this organization. List three strengths and three limitations to your overall progress. Identify ways to improve on all six, including what you will need from your direct supervisor or other administrators to help move you along the roadway to success.

10. I will try to improve my relationship with at least one person with whom I do not get along. Take the initiative; meet with him or her and discuss the issues, whether overt or subtle, that prevent you from having positive interactions. Remember that your goal as an employee is to make the best of your talents, create synergies with colleagues and increase the productivity and effectiveness of the company. A clear deterrent to those tasks are problematic people relations. How can you minimize that obstacle to success?

malapit na naman magtapos ang taon at eto gaya-gaya na naman sa annual awards ni Maryan, ilan lamang sa aking mga faves sa buong taon, maiksi lang din ang aking memorya kagaya ni Maryan kaya eto po ang ilan lamang sa aking naitala..

1 Isang taon na ang nakakalipas nang magpa-survey ako sa aking blog sa tanong na "Sino ang mas pipiliin mo makasama?". At ang hatol - Taong mahal ka 75 (29%), Taong mahal mo 180 (70%).

2 Disaster  - Bagyong Ondoy - grabe ang ginawa ng bagyo na ito sa atin. Talagang ramdam ko ang epekto nito kahit malayo nang kaunti sa Metro Manila. Nalubog sa baha halos ang malaking bahagi ng kalakhang Maynila.

3 Social Networks  - dati sikat ang Friendster dahil siya ang revolutionize ng social networking life ng mga Pinoy pero mula nang magkaroon ng ibang features ang Facebook na pasok sa puso ng mga tao (gaya ng mga applications), napataob na ng Facebook ang Friendster sa ating bansa.

4 Facebook Apps - para sa akin yung Castle Age (though mas marami Farmville at iba pang mga pagsasaka na Harvest Moon clone dyan), nagagamit talaga ang stats ng player at may team-ups pa aginst epic boss.

5 TV Series - hindi naman ako mahilig sa local TV series pero sa foreign naman, siyempre Legend of the Seeker, since I'm a Sword of Truth fan. Syempre the classics "The X-Files" as in ilang weeks kung marathon para matapos lang siya at maintindihan ulit ang buong palabas.

6 Movie - so far 2 movies lang ang nagustuhan ko, yung "Paranormal Activity" at "Avatar" (not the Legend of Aang movie, the James Cameron one), pero siyempre Anticipated na ung "The Last Airbender", sa trailer palang, panalo na!

7 Book - since Dracula fan rin po, siyempre about the great Wallachian ruler ang fave book ko this year - "Dracula: Prince of Many Faces, His Life and His Times".

8 Games - hmm, semi-active lang ako sa mga online games, pero siyempre vow na vow pa rin ako sa World of Warcraft, all time favorite ko ang MMORPG na ito, kaya naman hindi ako papayag na hindi ko ito malaro ulit bago matapos ang taon. Kaya eto starting to play again. Tauren Druid kagaya ng dati. Ahehe!

9 Weekend Pastime - since hindi talaga ako pumipirmi sa bahay, pagpunta lang sa computer shop ng aking barkada ang ginagawa ko twing weekends pag walang lakad, paubos ng oras lang dun.Miss ko na ang mga PS Boys.

10 Out of Town - hmm, twice na naman akong nag Tagaytay and lalo na sa Caleruega, napaka serene and tranquil ng area lalo na pag nasa taas ka ng hill. Ang sarap ng hangin. Ang ganda ng scenery. Puro green. Lalo na ang sunset niya. Ang sarap mag meditate. It uplifts my spirit at nakakawala ng stress. Next year maraming naka booked sa akin travel calendar, minsan kalang mabuhay sa mundo kaya susulitin ko na itong pag uunwind ko. Ang saya-saya.

11 Peers - Bukod sa PS boys. Mahalaga sa akin mga clanmates ko sa Uzzap. Sila ang aking shock absorber at breather sa mga panahon na depressed ako at kailangan ng support. Andyan sila palagi para damayan ako. Salamat guys. Sana andyan kayo palagi thru highs and lows and rest be assured i'm also here for all of you.

12 Hero of the Year - siyempre walang duda na si Pacman ito. 7 titles pa naman. Isa na siyang matuturing na Legend sa Boxing World. Tuwing may laban siya, parang tumitigil ang mundo natin. Lahat nakatutok sa TV at pinapanood kung paano niya talunin ang kanyang mga kalaban.

13 Trapo - Pinaka-trapo sa lahat ng mga pulitiko eh ang ating mahal na Pangulo, na sobrang uhaw sa kapangyarihan at hindi pa nakuntento maging Presidente at tumakbo pa bilang Congressman, para siguro maging Parliament na tayo at maging Prime Minister siya, nakakasawa ang mga balita tungkol sa pulitika. Kelangan ng pagbabago at kung hindi ngayon, kelan pa. Kelan pa kaya tayo makakabangon sa pagkakadapa natin.

14 Happy moment - Siguro nung nagpalit ako ng status na "In a relationship".

15 Sad moment - Nung bamalik ulit sa "Single" ang status ko.

16 Boring moment - ewan ko, pagpipirmi ako sa bahay siguro at yung ibang kasama sa office.

17 Word of mouth - TNT!

Kakalungkot talaga mga nakalipas na araw para sa akin. Eto single na naman ulit ako. Ayoko na po mag kwento. Sa akin nalang po ito. Hindi ako nagsisisi sa desisyon ko. Para sa ikabubuti rin namin ito. Kahit papano andyan mga kaibigan ko para ma-divert ang attention. Tapos sumabay rin ang iba ko pang kakilala. Ewan ko ba, anung sumpa meron ang last 2 weeks bago mag Bagong Taon at maraming breakup na nangyayari.

Forecast for 2010

The Year of the Tiger will be an excellent one for all Dogs with a significant improvement in fortune all year long. They must leave the past behind, for the Ox year was a challenging one, and look forward with optimism and determination. There will still be challenges this year for the Dog, as for all the signs, and it is important that he talk over any potential problems and worries rather than bottling them up. Socially, this is the Dog’s year to shine and many new strong friendships and alliances will be formed. The Year of the Tiger will see increased finances for the Dog with many receiving bonuses or even gifts throughout the year. However, it is important that he takes his time regarding financial matters, checking details and ensuring that he has read all the fine print. May to August will be very significant for single Dogs and all invitations should be carefully considered! September through November will have crucial career opportunities – don’t miss them! Recreational activities and hobbies will also feature strongly, with some able to turn their hobby into their career with great success.

Matagal-tagal ding walang update at puro pictures lang. Alanganin lang kasi ang shift at medyo demanding ang goals. Plus dagdagan mo pa ng maraming problema sa kahit saang aspect. Unti-unti nang nauubos na naman ang aking bilang na buhok sa bumbunan kakaisip ng mga problema.

Pampalipas lang ng oras ang Facebook, salamat sa Dungeons and Dragons at Castle Age at naaaliw ako sa pagpapataas ng stats ko. Tapos Uzzap sa ibang room, kahit papano nawawala ang pagod.

Condolence nga pala kay Oliver sa anak niyang si Baby Daniel. Sana maging smooth ang recovery phase ng family niya.

Last Weekdays, went to Tagaytay and Caleruega ulit. Pero this time kasama mga berks sa Uzzap. It was fun kahit na empty batt ang cam at kaunti lang ang shots.

4th day na ng midshift na ito. Grabe na itong paghihirap na ito. Kainitan ng araw, nasa biyahe ka. Tapos bulok na FX pa ang nasakyan mo. Hindi na talaga ako sasakay sa mga lumang FX na yan. Dapat pinagpapahinga na mga ganyang sasakyan dahil pag tirik ang araw, kung kelan kailangan ng aircon saka pumapalya. Parang tinutusta kami sa looban bukod pa sa pwesto ko na nasisikatan ng araw. Ilang minuto (at parang inabot na ata ng isang oras) rin ang ginugol ko sa pwestong iyon.

Tapos pagdating sa MRT, siksikan pa na hindi na rin kinakaya ng aircon dun at katabi mo mga pawisan rin. Naghalo na ang mga amoy niyo dun. Pagbaba mo pa sa Buendia, sasakay pa ng bus at maglalakad sa katirikan ng araw para makarating sa office. Apat na araw na itong kalbaryo na ito. Hindi ko alam kung makakayanan ko pa ito. Sumasakit na ang ulo ko at natutuyuan ako ng pawis palagi.

2-11pm. Wow start na talaga ng midshift namin. Wala naman akong magagawa kundi sumunod, isang hamak na empleyado lang ako dito sa kumpanya. Kaya kailangan subukan ko ang mga available options sa akin para makapasok o uwi. Masyadong alanganin ang shift na ito, sobrang init pag papasok ka tapos delikado pa pag uuwi ka. Next year ko pa balak mag apartment kaya tiis muna ngayon.

Sa pagpasok, 2 lang pinagpipilian kong route - sa Commonwealth or sa Cubao. Since Php4 lang naman ang difference kaya hindi masyado big deal. Iyon nga lang, hindi ko pa nasusubukan ang travel time sa ganung oras kaya eksperimento muna. Sa ngayon biyaheng Cubao (thru FX) ang kinuha ko. Ok naman ang biyahe pero ayoko na talaga maupo sa unahan. Tirik masyado ang araw at ang init sa harapan. Masusunog ang bag at hita ko niyan. Kaya naman pawis ang likod ko nung pagbaba sa FX.

Buti nalang at may MRT card ako kundi pipila na naman ako ng ilang minuto sa MRT. Buti naman at hindi ganun karami ang mga commuters nung mga oras na iyon. Nakasakay rin ako agad. Bumaba na ako sa Buendia at sinubukan ang isa pang route na bus pabalik sa Estrella (against the conventional The Fort bus at Ayala MRT). Mabilis ang biyahe at hindi mo na kailangan mag-antay nang katakot-takot sa pilahan gaya nung nangyari sa akin dati. Eto pawisang baboy na naman ako habang naglalakad papunta sa office.

Isang malaking challenge eh ang pag-uwi mamaya. Hanggang hatinggabi lang ang terminal sa amin at 11pm pa ang uwi ko. Ayoko nang sumakay sa Taxi pag ganung alanganing oras. Ang gastos talaga. Kaya option ko pag wala nang terminal. Babalik ako sa Batasan Road at dun maghahanap ng diretso na jeep pauwi sa amin. Hayz, ayoko talaga ng ganitong schedule. Pakiramdam ko nag-iipon lang ako kundi sa ospital eh sa libing ko. Umalis nga ako sa comfort zone, pumasok naman sa danger zone. Sana nga at temporary lang ito at next month/year eh back to normal na ang schedule namin.

*UPDATE

Kagabi, todo madali pag-uwi, para maabutan ang ilang nalalabing jeep sa terminal. Nakasakay na rin sa bus agad. Nainis lang nang kaunti kasi sobrang tagal niya sa isang area minsan kung makahakot ng mga pasahero. Anung oras na rin at almost 1am na ako nang dumating sa terminal. Buti nalang at may jeep pa pero punuan pa rin. Pagkauwi sa may amin, walang katao-tao sa lugar namin. Kaya naman nagmamadali rin akong maglakad. Past 1am na ako nakarating sa bahay. Ayoko talaga ng ganitong schedule. Kainis. Masasanay ka sa panganib.

Kainis biglang nag-shift ang kaadikan ko mula online games into Pesbuk. Dati rati parang wala lang, flash game lang ito kagaya ng ibang nakikita mo sa Internet. Pero ngayon halos araw-araw kahit man lang isang oras, kelangan makapaglaro ako dahil may hinahabol akong mga stats, achievements at iba pang anik-anik sa games na nilalaro ko.

Una, ang CastleAge - ito ang main culprit kasi ba naman, ok sa akin ang multi-function features niya na bukod sa mga quest, may achievements page pa, random items and yung group battle sa mga epic bosses. Next naman yung Spore Islands, though hindi masyado sikat ito, gusto kong palakasin ang monster ko at tumaas ang biodiversity ng island. Then yung Naruto Shippuden naman, wala lang, mission at jutsus lang. At yung isa sa una kong nilaro, MafiaWars na sa ngayon eh malapit na naman magbukas ang bagong area which is Bangkok. So far, isang job nalang sa Cuba ang naiwan sa akin at patapos na naman ako sa Chapter 4 sa Moscow. Itong apat na game lang ang nilalaro ko sa ngayon, ayoko kasi ng high maintenance game gaya ng Harvest Moon clone na Farville etc.

Siguro pag satiated na ako sa mga ito. Balik shift na naman ako, once na mahiram ko na ang World of Warcraft na installer. Nakaka-miss na rin kasi ang mag-WoW, it has been more than 2 years right now mula nang umalis ako sa mundo ng powerlevelling sa mahal naming GamePal. Very promising ang video game business sa Pinas, iyon nga lang masyado pang bata ito at kailangan pa ng further research para ma pinpoint kung saan feasible ang gaming industry.

Cuerpo vows to return to mayor’s post

Suspended official cites Palace order

MANILA, Philippines - Suspended Rodriguez Mayor Pedro Cuerpo said he will return to his post on Monday on the strength of an order from Malacañang granting a stay in his suspension. Cuerpo cited an order dated Nov. 9 from the Office of the President directing the acting mayor, Vice Mayor Jonas Cruz, to “cease and desist” from performing his functions as mayor and relinquish those duties to him.

“Mayor Cuerpo may now reassume his position as municipal mayor in the meantime,” the order signed by Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said. The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) was also directed to execute the order immediately. But Cuerpo said the DILG had not acted on the order almost a month after it was first issued, prompting his decision to return to office “whether the DILG will implement (the stay order) or not.”

“Otherwise, it will be considered abandonment of duty,” he said, adding that his suspension would have lapsed on Dec. 22. Cuerpo said he expected thousands of his supporters to join him in his attempt to come back to work at the town hall Monday. However, he added that there could be some resistance from the sitting mayor when he returns to his office.

The suspension order, which was issued by the Rizal provincial board in October, stemmed from an old administrative case filed last year against Cuerpo for the construction of the Slope Stabilization and Central Transport Terminal Project in Barangay San Rafael.

-full story here

Traffic na naman kaninang umaga at hanggang Plaza lang ang tricycle na sinakyan ko. Babalik na naman kasi sa office niya ang suspended mayor namin at makikipag-showdown naman siya sa acting mayor namin. Ang gulo-gulo nila. Ilang buwan o baka nga taon na itong issue na ito. Ilang beses nang suspinde at bumalik sa opisina ang aming butihing mayor dahil sa isyu ng katiwalian at negligence sa mga constituents niya.

Sana lang maayos na ng kapulisan ang peace and order sa munispyo dahil matagal na ang away na ito at masyado nang nakaka-perwisyo sa mga tao ang kanilang bangayan. Lalo na siguro pag malapit na ang eleksyon. Wala ako masyadong masasabi sa isyu na ito kundi bukod sa istorbo. Pare-pareho naman silang tiwali. Walang mapili sa kanila. Pulitika nga naman. Gagawin ang lahat sa ngalan ng kapangyarihan.

Symbol of Loyalty

0 Reaction(s)
while browsing wikitravel at Shibuya (a Tokyo ward known for its popular shopping and eating district) - one of the prominent landmark there was the Hachiko statue near the Shibuya station.

here is the story of the famous dog loyal to his master..



In 1924, Hachikō was brought to Tokyo by his owner, Hidesaburō Ueno, a professor in the agriculture department at the University of Tokyo. During his owner's life, Hachikō saw him off from the front door and greeted him at the end of the day at the nearby Shibuya Station. The pair continued their daily routine until May 1925, when Professor Ueno didn't return on the usual train one evening. The professor had suffered a stroke at the university that day. He died and never returned to the train station where his friend was waiting.

Hachikō was given away after his master's death, but he routinely escaped, showing up again and again at his old home. After time, Hachikō apparently realized that Professor Ueno no longer lived at the house. So he went to look for his master at the train station where he had accompanied him so many times before. Each day, Hachikō waited for Professor Ueno to return. And each day he didn't see his friend among the commuters at the station.

The permanent fixture at the train station that was Hachikō attracted the attention of other commuters. Many of the people who frequented the Shibuya train station had seen Hachikō and Professor Ueno together each day. Realizing that Hachikō waited in vigil for his dead master, their hearts were touched. They brought Hachikō treats and food to nourish him during his wait.
This continued for 10 years, with Hachikō appearing only in the evening time, precisely when the train was due at the station

That same year, another of Ueno's former students (who had become something of an expert on the Akita breed) saw the dog at the station and followed him to the Kobayashi home where he learned the history of Hachikō's life. Shortly after this meeting, the former student published a documented census of Akitas in Japan. His research found only 30 purebred Akitas remaining, including Hachikō from Shibuya Station.

Professor Ueno's former student returned frequently to visit the dog and over the years published several articles about Hachikō's remarkable loyalty. In 1932 one of these articles, published in Tokyo's largest newspaper, threw the dog into the national spotlight. Hachikō became a national sensation. His faithfulness to his master's memory impressed the people of Japan as a spirit of family loyalty all should strive to achieve. Teachers and parents used Hachikō's vigil as an example for children to follow. A well-known Japanese artist rendered a sculpture of the dog, and throughout the country a new awareness of the Akita breed grew. Hachikō died on March 8, 1935, of filariasis (heartworm). His stuffed and mounted remains are kept at the National Science Museum of Japan in Ueno, Tokyo.

In April 1934, a bronze statue in his likeness was erected at Shibuya Station, and Hachikō himself was present at its unveiling. The statue was recycled for the war effort during World War II. After the war, Hachikō was not forgotten. In 1948 The Society for Recreating the Hachikō Statue commissioned Takeshi Ando, son of the original artist who had since died, to make a second statue. The new statue, which was erected in August 1948, still stands and is an extremely popular meeting spot. The station entrance near this statue is named "Hachikō-guchi", meaning "The Hachikō Exit", and is one of Shibuya Station's five exits.

Last year, CNN sneaked onto the set of Hachiko A Dog Story, the tale of a long-life devotion of a dog to its owner, an upcoming family drama movie starring Richard Gere.

Ang hirap-hirap ng ganitong sitwasyon. Sa mga panahon na low spirit ka at sobrang down. Hindi ka man lang matulungan ng partner mo. Na supposedly kasama mo to cheer you up and giving you a heads-up. Instead, patuloy ka lang na nilulubog sa putikan sa patuloy na pag-criticize sa iyo. Bugbog na ako sa mga iniisip, hindi mo pa ako matulungan. Anu pa silbi mo ngayon sa akin, na sa ganitong pagkakataon na kailangan kita, mas pinili mo pa ang ibang tao kesa sa akin. Tapos sasabihin mo pa sa akin, i should see a psychiatrist.

Wala naman akong pakialam kung mabasa mo ito. As if may pakialam ka sa akin. Hindi mo nga tinatanong kung anung mga gusto at ayaw ko, eto pa kaya. Pag nilalabas ko problema ko or frustrations, ikaw pa itong nagagalit sa akin. Anu na lang ang pwedeng kong gawin na kaaya-aya para sa iyo, lokohin sarili ko na Ok ako despite na in reality me problema talaga. Pasensya ka na transparent akong tao, hindi ko kaya magkunwari. Kung anu ang nararamdaman ko, nakikita sa kinikilos ko.

Sa ngayon, reality check ako ngayon. At pagiisipan ko mga susunod na hakbang. Kung wala talagang pagbabago na mangyayari. Then kahit ayoko, kelangan ko gumawa ng drastic action para sa ikabubuti at ikatatahimik nating dalawa. Sabi nga sa kanta - "If you really love me, then show me that you give a damn.."

** Update

Nagkita kami kanina, nagkasabihan ng nasasaloob. Status quo. Hanggang sa matapos manood ng movie. Pagkauwi nagkausap nang kaunti. Nag sorry siya sa akin. Naramdaman ko naman na sincere iyon. Sa ngayon, nasa lowest spot na naman kaming dalawa at pipilitin naming makabangon muli mula sa pagkakalugmok sa mga trials ng relasyon namin.

World of Warcraft can be beaten?

0 Reaction(s)


They said it couldn't be done. Well, to be fair, it can't -- however, if one were to track the completion of Blizzard's super successful World of Warcraft by the number of achievements a player had unlocked, then a Taiwanese player has effectively solved that game tape. A character named "Little Gray" on the Wrathbringer server has completed all 986 of the game's 'cheevos, killing 390,895 creatures and finishing 5,906 quests along the way.


However, this triumph of human resolve has been diminished by one small caveat: one upcoming winter holiday–tied achievement, titled "BB King," remains locked, but due to a glitched PvP achievement that apparently unlocked twice, his statistics say he's batting a thousand. With the game's Winter Veil festivities approaching, we expect Little Gray will unlock that last feat soon, at which point the credits will roll, and his account will be permanently erased. Or the server will explode. Definitely one of those two.

Ewan ko, wala akong gana ngayong araw na ito. Nakapag-facebook naman ako. Hindi ko lang siguro na upload yung mga pics ngayon dahil sarado ang shop ng friend ko. Pero ewan ko, siguro sa work environment at sa mga tao na rin. La man lang nakakapag-spark ng interest ko sa kanila. Kasawa na.

Starting December 1, may bayad na ang Smart Uzzap at Php 10/day siya. *sigh* Tapos na ang maliligayang araw ng mga kuripot diyan (kasama na ako dun). I guess bye bye time na sa mga chatmates at dun sa may number at naka bonding na text-text na lang. Malamang sa PC na lang ang iba magpapatuloy or yung iba mag-aantay nalang ng next announcement. Hek hek!
