Random Nothings of a Glorified Tambay

And just like that, summer's ended and 2 months has passed since I became a glorified tambay.
Here are some random nothings of a jobless and non-taxpayer lady:


○ Since it's summer time and I have all the time to travel, I had trips to Occidental Mindoro, Butuan, Siargao, Surigao City, and a lot of secret destinations for PHL360. Sulit na sulit ang buong April!

○ All black and burnt skin, I went to my previous office and finally claimed my cheque. Being retrenched comes with a great price. ^_^

○ All of a sudden, I lost my excitement to travel. Ewan ko ba nawalan ako ng gana. Sorry sa mga madaming nag-aya pero tinanggihan ko.

○ Still jobless, I preferred to stay home and wasted my every day by surfing the net or do nothing. Priceless. Im not even aware anymore kung anong araw o anong petsa na.

○ I realized Im always jobless when my birthday comes. I was jobless last May 2007, May 2008, May 2011, and May 2012. (and trust me, di ko sinasadya yan)

○ I got bored so I started looking for a job.

in an interview

employer: what did you do since Mar 31, it's been almost 2 months since you lose your job.
me: i traveled. i also joined a reality travel show.
employer: out of curiosity, i checked out your blog and read about your indonesia trip.
me: that's really terrifying, but it's a lesson for travelers that unexpected things can happen. now i just considered it as a bump on the road.
employer: yeah, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
me: (bidyoke time na to!)


○ After 5 hours, the employer emailed me the job offer. (yes, via email or phone nalang ang job offer ngayon, in case you dont know).

○ To avoid any birthday mishaps on a trip, I stayed home and celebrated my birthday with my family. It's a good and quiet one. I even set off the birthday notification on Facebook. Wala lang, it's not a big deal if you remember it or not. Anyway, thanks to those who sent me birthday greetings. I appreciated them. ♥

○ Big thanks and warm hugs to my dearest friends who knew na kuripot ako so they gave me these:

donnie: teh, alam ko di ka bibili ng P399 na sabon, pero kelangan mo yan.
me: haha, pakshet ka. ganun na ko kaitim? pero thank you! sana effective. toinks!


rem: alam ko gustong-gusto mo yan, pero di ka gagastos ng P1,200 for a towel.
me: haha korek. wee, thank you! may sea to summit na ko, isa na akong ganap na travel blogger ^_^


○ Im not a fan of expensive shoes, designer bags, and branded clothes - but I think it's time for my old fossil watch to retire. Iba na din kasi lifestyle ko ngayon. I need a sporty type this time, yung pwede ding pang underwater!

birthday gift to myself ♥
katas ng retrenchment #1


○ A day after my birthday, my friends and I flew to Roxas. The trip isn't successful, but the happiness level cannot be any less! Old school bidyoke and improvised disco in a quiet little town. Fun!

that's Carla, Peng, Rem, and I on this big boat


○ Forgive me I didn't have time to blog and bloghop. Im busy preparing my pre-employment requirements (again). I never planned to work for 6 different companies in 5 years! =(

○ Lastly, Im currently looking for an apartment, condo, or a room to rent or share (wag nyo ko bentahan ng condo, i said rent lang). Basta very accessible sa Market Market or The Fort. If you know a place, please let me know. If you're also looking for one , please leave me a message. I promise magiging mabait akong housemate. ^_^

galing ng interview, pati blog mo nabisita nia. chalan! A-for-effort sa pag-background check.

Natawa ako sa regalong sabon. Pero minsan okay naman ang pagiging dark-skinned, yan ang kina-iinggitan ng mga foreigners! :D

Lance Baydal said...

Happy Birthday Chyng! Grabeh I admire kung pano ka mag resign nang wala pang sure na trabaho next. After college, work talaga ako agad and since then I never became a bummer. Bago kasi ako mag resign, I make sure na sureball na ang next na employment. Yayks! Gusto ko rin ma try maging ultimate bummer! hehehe

btw, did you know i'm embarking on a new phase of my blogging life now? lol check out my tech blog at www.rutechy.com :))

Bee said...

Sabi ko sa bf ko, gusto kita maging housemate coz I'm sure you've got more travel stories to share than what's in your blog. Kaso naisip ko, baka mainggit lang ako ng todo. :P

Cheers! You have a job after 2 months only. We almost have the same case. I had 5 companies, 5 works in 5 years! Hindi naman ako company-hopper. Congrats on your new job! Mahirap maging bum kahit marami kang free time to travel! Birthday wish for you - more travels to come so more travel stories to share here.

pie rivera said...

Happy happy birthday Chyng!!! I must admit this is the first time I saw your website - pero naaliw ako for being brutally frank! kakaloka! Belated Happy Birthday to you! Kaya ako nagcocomment ngaun ay dahil sa sinabi mong lagi kang (almost always) walang work during your birthdays - ako naman, ilang beses ko na din kasing napupuna na tuwing malapit na ako mag birthday, lagi akong walang pera ... kainis! hahaha ... pero congrats and good luck to your new job - on the bright side - madali ka makakuha ng trabaho, kudos to you! more kakalokang posts! :)
