Personalan: Shift adjusted by 1 hour

It is the time of the season wherein everyone will get their schedules changed. Schedule Adherence scores and tenureship would determine who chooses first. And being number 1 on this category (yeah I am really that good in managing my scores), I picked the shift which is closest to the previous one with the same rest day.

Here is my My interim schedule

Fri Sat Sun Mon
De Leon_024325, Joseph Paulo NSWSV 4:00 PM OFF OFF 5:00 PM

Not much change eh?

Sad to say, my Hon wasn’t able to get a shift with the same rest days as mine. Her shift is at 4 hours later and there are obviously no overlapping breaks for us. This is really an adjustment to make.

Now this would be a chance prove to the world how we can make things work with just “quality time” and not “quantity time”.

Kapwa Kampeon: Michael Jackson

Namatay na ang nag-iisang King of Pop na si Michael Jackson.

Pop icon, singer and legendary music entertainer Michael Jackson has been pronounced dead Thursday, June 25, 2009 and now multiple details have emerged claiming that Jackson was first suffering from cardiac arrest after being taken to the hospital, and was later stricken, and reported in a coma for a short time before his sudden death. – hiphoprx.com

Naalala ko pa noon, noong nasa laguna pa kami. Naglalaro kami nun sa SEGA console ng “Moonwalker” kung saan bida si Michael Jackson at mga zombies, mga goons at mga aso ang kinakalaban namin. Kapag naghold ka sa special button ng matagal, sasayaw si MJ kasama ng lahat ng mga kalaban sa screen. Kapag tapos na ang sayaw, patay na rin lahat ang kalaban.

Musmos pa man din ako noong kasagsagan ng fame ni MJ Jackson (Michael Joseph ang tunay niyang pangalan) hindi ko pa rin mapagkakaila na siya nga ang pinakamatagumpay na singer-artist. Sa kabila ng maraming controversial events sa kanyang buhay, namamayagpag pa rin ang kanyang pagiging pinaka maimpluwensiyang tao pagdating sa Music Industry noon at ngayon. Idol siya ng mga idol ng mga idol ko.

Nakikiramay ang inyong Kampeon Ng Pagibig sa lahat ng relatives and friends, gayundin sa lahat ng fans na nagluluksa dahil sa pagkawala ng isang icon.

Karapatdapat talaga siyang bigyan ng clap-clap.

Book Review: New Moon

Twilight02 – New Moon

by Stephenie Meyer

When I have heard that the second book on the Twilight Saga will hit the big screen this November of 2009, I wanted to do what other people usually do; and that is to read the book first. Good thing a copy of the book is available from a friend, so I started reading the minute I get a hold of it.

The fans of Edward Cullen are correct to say that the book is boring at the middle part of it. If you so love the “bloodsucker”, then it really is boring for you. I know for sure that it would not be boring for me since I am not reading it for the sake of being with Edward Cullen.

The Plot:

Just like any other recently sprouted relationships, there would be misunderstandings and miscommunications. There will be problems of all sorts (take it from the kampeon). Although the first ever break up will always be the hardest, love will always be sweeter the second time around. That is what the story is all about; how Bella and Edward went off their own ways because of assumed incompatibility issues, how Bella coped with the loss, and how fate moulded their destinies to cross each other’s path again.

A very minor character from Twilight01, by the name of Jacob Black,  stepped up, and he happens to be a member of the anti-vampire social club. I am so joyed that this is again another story about Vampires and Werewolves. I just can’t get enough of it (plus the idea that this is a love story).

New Concepts:

Werewolves can freely transform themselves, and they actually hunt in packs like normal wolves. They are hot-blooded, the exact opposite of Vampires, and both can’t resist the smell of the other. The last time I checked, everyone wants to be a Vampire. After reading this book, I wonder if people would want to become a Werewolf after the movie is out.

The author, Stephenie Meyer, gave a very striking spirituality concept of Vampires. I know, it is normal for another set of people, very different to human beings, to create their own religion. But the author let the cold ones follow the belief of humans. Fictional characters such as Vampires now believe in the existence of heaven, hell, soul and afterlife.

Famous Lines:

Which is tempting you more, my blood or my body? ~Bella

It never made sense for you to love me. ~Bella

Your hold on me is permanent and unbreakable. Never doubt that. ~Edward

Marry me first. ~Edward

I’d rather die than be with anyone but you. ~ Bella

You’re human — your memory is no more than a sieve. Time heals all wounds for your kind. ~ Edward

I can’t live in a world where you don’t exist. ~ Edward

Swoosh News: Sunog sa Makati

Kakarating ko lang sa opisina. Habang may maiksing meeting kami, may mga dumadaan galing sa open area (na tinatawag na yosi area, upang doon sila magbugahan ng usok). Isa isa sila na nagsasabing, “ambaho”, “masakit sa ilong”, “kadiri”. Alam ko, naligo ako at sigurado akong hindi ako ang pinag-uusapan nila. Sana totoo nga na hindi ako.

Nang magpaalam ang aming bisor para mag-CR, tumayo rin ako.  May nakasalubong ako na mga ka-opisina na nagsabing may sunog daw sa likuran ng building namin. Dahil pasaway ako, tumingin ako doon. Oo nga, may sunog nga.

Makapal ang usok, isa-isang dumarating ang mga bumbero. Kung saan-saan sila galing; Makati, Binondo, Marikina, Quezon City. Kung anu-anong barangay. Bawat sasakyan ng bumbero, may pangalan ng pulitiko. Yung sa Binondo lang ata ang wala (malay ko ba kung yung Chinese Character dun e pangalan pala ng barangay captain nila). Sari-sari ding tao ang nakikiusisa. Mga tambay, mga negosyante na umuupa sa building, mga usiserong corporate slaves at syempre, mga iskwater na naninirahan sa likod ng building.

Dahil isa ako sa mga usissero, bumaba din ako nung break ko at kumuha ng mga pictures. Ngayon ako nagsisisi kung bakit hindi ganun kaganda ang camera ng phone ko. Pero gumagana pa rin naman ang 2 megapix camphone nito kaya sige lang, sugod lang. Feeling ko, isa akong media man dahil kasama ko sa mga usisero ay ang mga naka-ID na reporter ng GMA-7. Di ko na sila kinilala, hindi rin naman nila ako kikilalanin e.

Nalaman ko na sa building na Campos Rueda talaga nagsimula ang sunog. Nalaman ko rin na pinapasa lang ng mga fire truck ang tubig papunta sa fire truck na nasa harap para hindi na sila lahat mag mani obra at mahirapan sa “substitution” pag naubusan na ng tubig ang isa. Nalaman ko rin na mayayaman din pala ang mga iskwater sa Makati. Naglilikas sila ng kani-kanilang mga TV, DVD player, Amplifier, kumot, unan, sofa at refrigerator.

Ganito talaga kami sa Makati. Suportado ng buong bayan. Sana lahat ng lugar sa Pilipinas, Makati ang pangalan.
