052. Home Away from Home

In the effort of promoting work-life effectiveness, our company made new rooms in our floors to help us relax and be fit. There are 2 new rooms in my own floor and officemates are telling me that they had me in mind when they did the design. *LOL*

First stop: Bike Room
I always complain that I don't have enough time to go to the gym so they made this room for me. Haha!
I can now watch my Asian concerts/dramas when biking. Hehe.
We have a boxing room as well in the upper floor and an aero-chorva in another floor.

Second Stop: Ruby Zen Room

I think there is one massage room every floor.
You can have a full massage or partial depending on your needs. Perfect for my sore and tired muscles.

The sound of the water is lulling me to sleep....zzzzzzzz....

If I am sleepy enough, I have my sofa bed with me. Zzzzzz...
In short, ayaw na nila ako pauwiin. Kulang na lang shower room. Hahaha! :D

051. Love celebrations


Happy Valentines Day everyone and Cong Xi Fa Cai to my Chinese friends. :D
Ever since I became a fan of Asian entertainment, I usually adapt the Asian cultures as well.

For love celebrations, we have Valentine's Day, White Day, and Black Day.

Valentine's Day - celebrated every Feb 14. This is the time that girls will give chocolates to the boys they like as an expression of love. I gave chocolates to the men I used to like to show how sincere my feelings for them. Since they didn't know the tradition, I passed it off as trying to change the concept of the day. *LOL*

White Day - celebrated every Mar 14. This time boys who received the "chocolate of love" can show their feelings by giving the girl they like with chocolate (usually more expensive than what the girl gave). 5 years ago, I had a boyfriend by that time. *LOL*

Black Day - celebrated every Apr 14. This time the girls who didn't receive anything on White day and the boys who didn't receive chocolates on Valentine's Day gather together and eat. It was aptly called Single Awareness Day. :p

For the last 4 years, I've been celebrating Black Day and this year is not an exemption. I wonder who's gonna eat with me? *LOL*

050. Commercial muna

Commercial muna from the emo-ness. Haha! I thought I can only get this via email. I thought wrong! Haha! As I've said in one of my blog posts, I created a formspring account coz I wanted to secure my name. I don't intend to answer questions but I do check the inbox from time to time. I was surprised when I saw this last Sunday.


Is he calling Zashi a slut? Ahhh foul na yan. Virgin pa yun aso ko noh.
It's hard to read it without pause. Try niyo.


I usually don't mind the hate coz I haven't done anything wrong. Pero pag emo ka na and nabasa mo pa 'to, it pulls you down even lower. I don't even broadcast my formspring in twitter and yet this person found me yet again. Naman. I can understand. Stalker din ako... Asian celebrities nga lang. :D

049. Insa

Grabbed the chance to have a noraebang (Korean term for videoke) and drinking session to end my weekend. The week was like a rollercoaster with lots of complicated turns and shifts for me. Thank goodness, I still came out sane (well, I think.)

I have a new fave drink called Soju bomb. It's a combination of Soju and Beer. There are two types of soju bomb - poktanju (1 shot of soju with a pint of beer) or suso poktanju (1 shot of beer with a pint of beer). I'm all for equality so I mix half pint soju and half pint of beer! Sarap! Beer should be Korean though to be more "natural".

Anyways, after downing so many soju bombs, I was brave enough to sing Insa. This song was in the OST of Millionaire's First Love, a Korean movie that I absolutely love. I managed not to break down in tears kahit sapul na sapul ang meaning ng kanta.

Even that time when the wind stays
It's not enough for me.
I smile one more time and give my final greeting:
I love you.
I am tired now and love hurts but
Even if that time is just a memory
I have to give my final greeting.
I love you, I love you.
Fly away Fly away LOVE
Fly away Fly away LOVE
Fly away Fly away LOVE
In the afterlife I will greet my love again

.... think happy thoughts Ruby. happy thoughts.

047. Saying goodbye to a friend

Last Saturday, I received a text from a friend that Noel has succumbed to cancer. I was shocked since I thought he already won the battle a few years back. The first thought that came to mind was, oh no. not again. Last year, I lost 5 friends. I don't want to count deaths again this year. T_T

Today, we finally laid him to rest. You know what hurt me the most and made me cry the hardest during the funeral rites? His tear-stricken father said, "children bury their parents, not the other way around. I never imagined that I will bury my son today." It was the same thing my parents said when we buried my brother 15 years ago.

Noel and I had a lot of wonderful moments together which I will forever cherish until it's my time to die.

Rest in peace, Noel. I love you.

PS. Noel was my first boyfriend and my first love.
