13th month pay!!

Yes! I'm so happy today coz I have our 13th month pay. Yup, it is the time of the year when you experience a lot of cash in you wallet coz you have a lot of things to buy..(haha...tama lang na may 13th month..:p)

Since it is my first encounter with 13 month pays, I am so damn excited about it. Though I know it is not really a generous offer from the company itself(since it is a LAW), but having my own 13th month pay makes me feel excited. How I wish there is a Christmas bonus but I think it is not a tradition in our company(wish ko lang gaya sa ibang companies na may 18th month no!). Yah..I can only wish for that..(wala naman masama mangarap..un lang pangarap lang!)

Anyway, since I opened my payslip for the 13th month pay yesterday, I have a lot of things jamming in my head where I'd be spending my pay.(haha..ang dali talaga ubusin ng pera!) Things like gifts (of course..pasko e), insurance (i'll pay for the whole yr... :D), shopping (pano naman ako no?!) and tuition (driving lessons :p). I guess no savings for me this year. Maybe next year (I hope)... darn..I've been working for almost a year and all I was able to deposit in my account is 5,000 pesos!! Grabe ha.. Not that I am earning so much. But still, makes me think where the heck all those monthly salaries went...hmmm....... Gotta tighten my expenses..need to add a few thousands on my savings next year perhaps.. (aww shit..I almost forgot that I have to pay 10k monthly...crap..)

Hare Potah.. (thanks Jay.. :D)



Last night, we watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire with officemates at Shangri-La. I was really excited 'coz HP movies are such a big hit plus, it's my first time to watch at Shangri-La. Not to mention the bottomless iced tea and popcorn (which I was not able to enjoy coz after some time munching popcorns made my tongue ache and iced tea will just lead me to the CR very often).

I find the movie nice and better than the first movies, but for some, especially the people who read the book, finds it too summarized. They said that a lot of details have been removed, important details that are. Well, I think books and movies are really different areas of art and literature and expressed in different manners. It would be very hard to capture all the details mentioned in a book and pack it up in a 2 - 3 hours of film.

What is important is that I enjoyed the film. Very nice effects plus I find Cedric very cute....the bad thing is that he have to die at the end of the film..(so sad..)

'coz i believe in ever after...with you...

Ever After
by: Bonnie Bailey
Three years ago, our journey began
Chasing down this cure, no plan in hand
Just your pulse, my racing guide in the dark
Just knowing with conviction from the start
The moment your eyes made an introduction
I felt my second violent breath of life
Flawless to the point of being godly
Yet I fell hard for your imperfections
And now we're slightly weathered, we're slightly worn
Our hands grip together, eye to eye through the storm, yet
I still believe in ever after with you, yeahhhhh
Cuz life is a pleasure with you by my side,
And there ain't no current in this river we can't ride
I still believe in ever after with you
Nothing compares to the good times
Feels like we're floating, when the rest have to climb
You made me believe in love, and not the perfect kind
A real messy beautiful twisted sunshine
Emotions, volcanic eruptions
We both still care, so we're still alive
Tunnel vision, determination
I want you, I want to make it right
And now we're slightly weathered, we're slightly worn
Our hands grip together, eye to eye through the storm, yet
I still believe in ever after with you, yeahhhhh
Cuz life is a pleasure with you by my side,
And there ain't no current in this river we can't ride
I still believe in ever after with you
You are my twisted sunshine
You are my twisted sunshine[2x]
And now we're slightly weathered, we're slightly worn
Our hands grip together, eye to eye through the storm, yet
I still believe in ever after with you, yeahhhhh
Cuz life is a pleasure with you by my side,
And there ain't no current in this river we can't ride
I still believe in ever after with you...
..watashi no kareshii desu.... :D that is for ever after.. :p
