I’ve been browsing for a good brand of external HD (hard drive) since I’ve been planning to have a 1TB that is portable for the reviewers and other stuff that I’ve been downloading. I added a 320GB HD recently but I don’t think that it would be enough since there are a lot of software, videos & PDF reviewers that I’ve been compiling almost half of it is occupied already. I came across this DELL Inspiron Zino HD; it is actually a mini computer that is very stylish and compact yet powerful!


The size of it is just 8 inches by 8 inches square with interchangeable colors and designs, it supports up to 8GB of 800MHz memory DDR2 SODIMM and up to 1TB SATA II hard drive so lets you enjoy quality graphics via the integrated ATI Radeon HD3200 and optional ATI discrete graphics, store images, listen to music with Conexant CX20561 2.1 Channel, connect wirelessly via the mini PCIe WLAN card that supports 802.11b/g or a/b/g and you can also put a DVD-RW or Blu-ray disc drive.


It’s like giving you everything you need in just a small box! How cool is that? Well, it may be expensive but I think it’s all worth it! I can’t wait to have that pretty gadget!

I’m really happy that the start of the week is getting better and better. After I did a major cleaning yesterday, rearranged my stuff inside the room and just now, my dad replaced the light bulb and installed the TV back here! I’m actually using my brother’s room since he is overseas but before I came back a year ago, they removed the TV and put it outside so my mom could watch TV while cooking or taking a rest in the garage, our dirty kitchen is next to the garage since it is a bit of an open space my mom would always stay there and would sometimes take a nap on the hammock. Anyways, after more than a year of not having TV and just using my PC to watch movies online (I guess it’s also one of the reasons why it got busted recently, OVERUSED), I am really glad that I have a TV again! YEHEY! Along with it is the cable TV connection, so I will get to watch my favorite programs and my PC will have time to rest. These things may be simple or can be considered just a little thing to be happy about but I know that it’s God’s work for me and I’m thankful for that. Oh, happy day!

Last Friday I was on a holiday but went to the office anyway because of Banchetto, it is an every Friday ritual when the clock strikes 12 midnight half the street of Emerald in Ortigas is closed, caterers and non caterers set up food stalls for them to sell different foods from a full meal to pastries, Mexican to Italian and of course native Filipino food! I went with my friends Grace and Ron. We had a very nice meal! I enjoyed the Blue Marlin Steak… YUM! After a great meal I stayed a couple of hours more just to be with some other friends in the office and since it’s Friday not too much work for them so we get to chit-chat. I went home around 5am since I still have to meet my friend JR Saturday morning for a little shopping spree in GreenHills and a basketball game in the afternoon, we joined this sort of basketball league along with other companies within the area just for a little extra-curricular activity but I’m just part of the audience… HEHEHEH! I felt great because again after a couple of months not going out it was the first! I get a chance to buy my mom what she has been asking me since September, I know I know! You may be thinking that I’m too lazy or whatever but I just don’t feel like going out alone, I like being with friends and enjoy sharing funny stuff. So we left for the game around 3pm as we still have to drop by the office to pick up Rye and Meg. I really enjoyed watching the game, Meg and I really pissed off the other team… HAHAHAHA! Even with just the two of us cheering, as if there’s a group… You can really hear our voices distracting the other players, and even our own team-mates were laughing at us and told us that we were crazy. It did pay off as they won the game! Yippee! I’m looking forward for another enjoyable weekend! =)

Just got pissed off this evening or should I say morning when these new guys suddenly put up a loud sound, I don’t know whether they don’t want to hear us talking or they really want to catch our attention. I really don’t understand what the heck is going on, why they get all the special treatment. Our account has a lot of people and yet they are getting our PCs! And now all of us would adjust our schedule and give way for them to have enough computers. Are they expecting us to share 1 computer among 2-3 people? That’s really insane! At least tonight will be my rest day and I won’t be too problematic where I would log on to work. I just hope that everything that they are doing is worth it, because as I can see it, those people are too arrogant for newcomers. It really annoys me seeing their faces! GRRR!!!

This is a point in my life that I need to lay on the things that matters. I know I should have done this long before but sometimes we linger to the pain we feel with no apparent reason and this day comes when we feel that time has left us behind with nothing to hold on to aside from memories…

A Prayer - Letting Go

Dear Jesus, I come to you now with a broken heart and a weary spirit. I don't know how I can carry on each day knowing that a part of me had already gone, never ever to return. Can I ever be complete again? Can I ever smile again at the coming of a new day? Day after day I miss him more and more. Day after day my longing grows but it can never be fulfilled. How can I possibly live my life again? How do I overcome this feeling that I am now all alone and I shall always be alone or the rest of my life? How do I let go? The places we’ve been to, the celebrations we had together, they will never be the same. The emptiness in my heart is so big I can no longer breathe sometimes.

Help me O God! The pain of separation seems more painful to me than death itself. I don’t know how much longer I can carry on. Help me carry on this day Lord. Help me to let go, I pray. Though I may not forget, help me to remember how you have always carried me through. Though the pain may not yet go away, assist me in carrying this cross with hope in my heart.

Let me not forget the people who love me and assist me in this hour of need. May I find strength in them, consolation in the generosity of their hearts. And whenever I’m afraid, let there always be a hand to hold on to, a smile to brighten up my path. Send down your angels Lord and may I recognize your hand upon your every gift and blessing. Give me something to do that I may not feel useless, yet teach me also to rest knowing all will be well after the long dark night.

You are my Rock and my Provider, Savior and Defender, Friend and Lover who will never ever let me down. You will lead me through this day. You will fill my every hour with peace, my every moment with thoughts of your love. I cannot bear the burdens of tomorrow but I will offer you all that I have today. Today is yours O God. This moment is yours. Embrace me and take my hand. I am in your heart. I am safe. I am loved.

I like to travel as much as I want to that I made a list of the countries I wanted to visit. So far I visited 2 from the list and still planning of completing the rest. One of the countries I wanted to visit is Australia, why? Well, really can’t say if this would answer the question but because I wanted to see a Koala… HEHEHE! I find them really cuddly and cute. Some of my friends told me before that it’s really nice there to live because of the cold weather, people are nice and life is simple. Alright back to travelling… What I always do when travelling is to get souvenirs in every place I’ve been to; it makes me feel fulfilled because of the new experiences to look forward to so something to remember is a must. I remember a friend who went there before for training told me that it’s normal for them to have a bottle of beer during lunch, how cool is that? They would walk around and feel the cool breeze of the wind; most of the shops there are closed at 5pm in where they stayed so when I asked him to buy me some stuff he does it during weekends. So since I planned of going there as well, I do some research over the Internet and get across this souvenir site where I saw a koala plush toy with a boomerang, so cute! Aboriginal souvenirs collection like road signs coasters, key rings or key chains, travel bags and the cool kangaroo art wooden notebook and pen that I consider great stuff. They also have handmade souvenirs like hand painted Australian native art canvasses & boomerang. Hopefully, I could visit Australia soon but of course if not I can always get that beautiful work of art through online.
