Thanking A Bunch Of People For My 30th Birthday

I just turned 30 years old. Hindi na ako young professional. Hindi na ako late 20s. Officially, kasapi na ako sa titos of Manila.

Kakatapos lang ng bday party dito sa bahay. Onti lang ang inimbita ko. Mainly, officemates lang na ka-close ko. Babawi na lang ako sa ibang friends.

At this point, hindi ko rin masasabi na handa na ako. I have accomplished a few things I guess. Yung mga importanteng bagay para sa akin, within reach na sila. I am well connected, have a stable job, with good friends, and a good stand in life.

Wala akong asawa, walang anak, walang girlfriend.
Meron akong assets, liabilities, and I am working on my equities.

I would say I am on the right track. At this point, wala akong gustong gawin kundi magpasalamat.

 

Given na, na gusto ko magpasalamat ke God, sa parents ko, sa mga kapatid, friends, mga kasambahay, kapitbahay, at kina chairman. Pero nais ko mag shout out dun sa hindi kilala ng karamihan.

Unahin ko na tong sipon ko. Salamat sayo, hindi ako makalabas ng bahay. Tipid tuloy ako ngayon kahit sweldo.

Dun sa kasama ko na nanood ng sine. Ulitin natin yun! Masaya yun! Next time, sagot mo naman ha.

Dun sa mga tindero sa Mini Stop na kahit hatinggabi na e gising pa rin. Thank you dahil nakakabili ako sa inyo ng Spicy Seafood cup noodles. Sarap.

Sa crush ko sa office. Nagbibigay ka ng inspiration para pumasok ako, pero sana, ngumiti ka naman minsan. Sayang yung smile mo pag hindi nakikita ng lahat.

Yung nagpautang sakin. Mababayaran din kita, promise. Paalala mo lang sakin na may utang ako sayo. Madalas kasi, sinasadya kong kalimutan.

Dun sa coach ko. Salamat sa pasensya. Gagalingan ko pa, promise. Magcha-champion din tayo.

Sa sponsors ng blog na to, maraming-maraming salamat. Birthday ko po ngayon, padalhan niyo naman ako ng something dito sa bahay. See you soon sa mga events ninyo.

Kung meron akong hihilingin sa ngayon, siguro, disiplina. Mapusok din kasi ako. Alam ko na ang gagawin, umiiba pa ako. Saktong guidance lang. Lord, pakidagdagan na lang yung guardian angel ko ng isa pa.

Lintik na sipon to.

Mina-MAGIC ba ng Meralco ang Pera mo?

Ang setup sa bahay namin, mag-aabot lang ako every sweldo ng napagkasunduang amount. Hindi ko na puproblemahin kung saan mapupunta ang pera na inabot ko. Nanay ko na bahala mag allocate nun sa iba’t ibang gastusin sa bahay.

Isa sa mga bayarin sa bahay e ang kuryente. Pangunahin yan. Pinakamalaki. Nakikita ko kasi ang bill namin sa kuryente na umaabot ng apat na libo kada buwan. Sunod dito ang internet, tubig, then araw-araw na pagkain. Kung may matitira, nanay ko na bahala mag budget nun sa kung ano tingin niya nararapat.

Kaya naman ang pagtitipid, nagsisimula din sa nanay ko. Para mas marami siyang ma-allocate na pera after lahat ng bayarin, siya na rin ang nagpapaalala sa amin na magtipid.

Ano na nga ba ang itsura ng Meralco bill namin ngayon. Tara, silipin natin. May balita sa baba:

Urbandub Will Try Acoustic with Endless Revisited – The Concert

Para sa mga Dubistas na hindi pa nakaka move on sa breakup at gusto ma-relive ang musika ng paborito nilang banda, saktong-sakto ang concert na ito.

Gabby and John will take a break from their busy businesses and individual projects. Hindi na muna magbebenta ng sabon na “Dark Matter Artisan Soap” si Gabby. Hindi muna magde-design ng T-Shirt si John Dinopol para sa “Pinnacle Clothing”. Para sa gabing ito, balik Urbandub muna sila.

Pero ibang Urbandub ito.

                Indeed record-breaking, “X-Men: Apocalypse’s” Phil. box-office feat is also cited in major news organizations as one of the top performing markets in international territories.

                Bryan Singer’s return at the helm of the franchise in “X-Men: Apocalypse” along with beloved mutant characters pitted against the most powerful of their kind has generated coherent rave buzz among its fan base round the globe despite polarizing reviews from some critics.  “X-Men: Apocalypse” brings returning and new characters on the big screen led by James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters and Rose Byrne with young and equally powerful mutants played by Sophie Turner, Ben Hardy, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp. Kodi Smit-McPhee and Oscar Isaac. In the movie, the invincible and immortal Apocalypse is set free after being entombed for several millennia.  Enraged that his kind are no longer treated as gods, Apocalypse assembles a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to destroy humankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.  To end Apocalypse’s path of global destruction, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) and Professor X (James McAvoy) lead a team of young X-Men in an epic showdown with a seemingly unstoppable enemy.

                “X-Men: Apocalypse” is now showing in cinemas across the Philippines from 20thCentury Fox distributed by Warner Bros. Available in 2D, 3D, 4D and IMAX screens nationwide.
