25 random things

This '25 random things' has been going on for a few weeks now in blogoshere... here's my own list

Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it is because I want to know more about you. i won't be tagging anyone so if you're up for the challenge, what are you waiting for, write those 25 thingys about you!

25. i am a chocoholic. i have a sweet tooth.

24. i hate patis (fish sauce), vinegar and ketchup. the only condiment i like is soy sauce.

23. i once set a balloon on fire and it exploded near my face. my hair got burned including right eyebrow. luckily, i still have my eyesight.

22. i loooooooooove traveling....'nuff said.

21. a friend called me 'kaladkarin' because i would not hesitate to join/tag along if someone invited me to go on a tour. no second thoughts, (as long as it is budget travel) i would immediately look at my work schedule and plan away. as they would say....madaling kaladkarin basta lakwatsa!

20. whenever i tell my friends that i'm really a shy and quiet person... a lot of eyebrows rose... i wonder why?! wehehe! :P

19. i have top 10 things to do and top 10 must see places in my lifetime! and i planning to accomplish it all!

18. i can speak 1 dialect (waray) and understand 3 other dialects.

17. i had a total of 8 jobs since i graduated. the shortest one lasted for 1 day. the next one was 2 for weeks.

16. this is my second lease on life. my sister told me that according to my dad, when i was still an infant i had a very high fever, i turned blue and nearly died... they soaked me in a tub full of ice to lower down my temperature.

15. i loooove Naruto anime. i'm reading the manga series (naruto) and watching naruto episodes online. it gives importance on family, friendship and excellence. and it's really funny!

14. i used to play arcade games ... i finished the jurassic park; house of the dead 1,2 and 3; and time crisis (* not sure about the series though), shooting those dinos and zombies are a sure way to beat stress. aw, i miss playing ... must get out fast! wahaha!

13. im fascinated with with photography, and i'm hoping to buy my DSLR cam before the year ends. and get some lessons too!

12. i always wonder how it feels like to have an older brother...a kuya who would look after me...

11. i'm really not a writer or an eloquent story teller but i started blogging last quarter of 2007... just to release my pent-up emotions, to serve as an avenue for my thoughts and a way to share my passion for travel and photography.

10. i fell inlove with Boracay...i'd definitely be going back there soon!

9. i can't sing as much as i want to rock out ... i'm tone deaf. poor me!

8. i am bungisngis... i laugh heartily and when i start laughing it's hard for me to stop.

7. i really want to join The Amazing Race! i even downloaded the application form, sadly one of the requirement is having an international license...whoa, i don't even know how to drive. i'll take driving lessons first then maybe reconsider joining again.

6. i'm kinda childish in nice sort of way. wehehe!

5. patience is not one of my virtue.

4. my childhood dream is to become a stewardess

3. "require not things to happen as you wish but wish them as they do happen and you will go on well" - euripedes. i so love this quote.

2. i roamed KL city streets and Hong Kong on my own out of curiosity

1. love is elusive to ME... hay... always 'almost there' but never able to continue to happily ever after...

getting to know ME better....

Your view on yourself:

You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You are not looking merely for a girl/boyfriend - you are looking for your life partner. Perhaps you should be more open-minded about who you spend time with. The person you are looking for might hide their charm under their exterior.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

The seriousness of your love:

Your have very sensible tactics when approaching the opposite sex. In many ways people find your straightforwardness attractive, so you will find yourself with plenty of dates.

Your views on education

Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can.

The right job for you:

You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don't focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.

How do you view success:

You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying.

What are you most afraid of:

You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel.

Who is your true self:

You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.

scheming evil twin sisters

noong unang panahong (mga ilang buwan lang nakaraan) nakachat ni gwail ang kanyang kaibigan na itatago naten sa codename: Princess. Si Princess ay may dilemna...cia ay may boylet! At si boylet ay nasa land far far away, at hinde maintindihan ni Princess kung ano ba talaga sila ni boylet na tatawagin nateng Comatose. Minsan kase si comatose ay super sweet parang jowa minsan naman parang ordinary friend lang. so nawiwindang si Princess.

Alam din pala ng aking twin sister na si Bogart ang heartaches ni Princess. So, napagisipan namen ng aking twin na tulungan si Princess. Likas kase samen ang maging matulungin. Naisip ko tawagin itong, Oplan Sagip Puso, Alay kay Princess!
gwailie: cguro gnun effect ni coma
pag di nya nakakausap
(refering sa isang incident na namiss ni Princess si Coma)
bogart: kaya nga matagal ko na cnsabi
prangkahin na nya e
para di sya nababaliw =)
as in tinamaan dude

excerpt ng aming schemes para matulugan si Princess

scheme # 1: Push Princess

gwailie: natotorpe kc ang lola mo!
umuurong dila
dapat cguro i-push pa

scheme # 2: Indifferent Princess
bogart: either dat or tuturuan ko na sya maging indifferent

scheme # 3: Pretend Princess
gwailie: magpanggap as Princess para malaman naten
kung ano talaga ang balak nyan ni coma!

scheme # 4: Princess Password
gwailie: alamin naten password ni Princess!
bogart: linlangin mo princess para makuha mo password nya
tapos rapid-fire questions dapat kay coma


scheme # 4 is the best game plan! tignan naten kung cia umamin sa barrage of questions namen!

the evil twin sisters saved the day! :P
