Can You Spot A Liar?

If you have been a friend with someone for so long that you always have regular conversations with that person, you can be able to know if you’re friend is telling a lie or not. I’m a good listener and I have a good memory when it comes to talks with friends, I’ve known some  who tallks a lot continuously and regularly, that they were not aware that their stories are changing everytime they tell it people. Can you spot a liar?  I can! It’s proven not only here but in reality:

You Can Definitely Spot a Liar

Maybe you have good instincts. Or maybe you just have a lot of experience with liars.
Either way, it’s pretty hard for someone to pull a fast one on you. You’re like a human lie detector.

Try this!


I won P500 GIFT CERTIFICATE (Starbucks or Coffee Bean) from MANILENIO!!!

I love joining online promos! For me, there’s no harm in trying and joining those. I’d love to win but if I don’t, it’s okay with me. I just join for the prize and fun. I’ve already won concert tickets from Ticketnet. I’ve also won an invite in Chicane’s concert in World Trade Center given by Nokia but I was not able to come in the event.

Last September 20, I joined Manilenio‘s contest and made a blog post in Multiply:

Win STARBUCKS Gift Certificates!!!

to win Starbucks gift certificate. I waited for the results but I didn’t win in that week.

Not lucky enough!

I lose the interest of winning the GC even though the administrator announced that participants who has already joined could still win the contest.

Manilenio posted the winner of the gift certificate (Starbucks or Coffee Bean) for the 3rd week yesterday and I was surprised to see my name there!

I’m so damn lucky!


Thanks Manilenio for appreciating my blog post entry and choosing me as your winner!!! 


Independence is Expensive

I wrote this when I was in college, those were the days when my parents were so strict to me:
Independence is Expensive
One Friday night, me and my friends decided to  relax and enjoy in a bar in Malate after a long week of exams. I pursued to go with them even though my parents didn’t allow me to gimmick. Without considering the permission and time, I went home late and drunk. Never had I felt more free and happier. Once again, I returned to my normal life the next day. My parents were very mad at me that they didn’t let me explain my side. It was one of the Martial Law days in our house. All my life, I want to experience being free and independent, standing on my own and voicing out anything in my mind without parents who will contradict me.

On most days, I had minimum hours of sleep and thought about nothing but lessons in school, to please myself and my parents, and to avoid conflict with them. One of the reasons why I want to be independent is to avoid conflicts with my parents. I can say that age gap can really results conflicts between parents and their children. I always have conflicts with them but with my mouth shut. I don’t consider a conflict as bad as long as I can give enough argument on what I stand for. For me, being independent is standing on your own – making decisions for yourself. I want to stand on my own as early as possible. Living at home may have advantages: free room and board and other benefits given by most parents which led to the dependence which is hard to break later on. I want to keep a watch on my money, time and action, and learn to get along with my parents. A life where I am the one to decide and to be blamed on all the consequences of my actions. This will prepare me to face the future alone courageously. It is also about the freedom that will make me decide to live independently. Living independently is doing anything you want with responsibility. At home, I have to ask my parents before doing anything. I couldn’t and wouldn’t live and ask them forever! They are here to guide but not to control me. I want to prove to myself especially to my parents that I can stand on my own and be responsible in anything I do. I could make mistakes, as part of life, but it will make me a better and stronger person to face challenges in the future like a bird starting to live away from its mother and facing the threats of its journey.

Reasons of being independent are many, and I think these reasons will cause a crack in a parent-child relationship. It is much better if parents let their children prove themselves. Children should escape from the shadow of their parents and express themselves to create a friendly relationship with them. I am not a rebellious child, I am undergoing this problem, and it’s not an easy one.

I’ve realized a lot after I wrote this essay. I learned to understand my parents and my parents learned to listen and understand me.



Priceless Gift =)

Me and Kat celebrated our two years together – friendship and romantic relationship – yesterday. It was a special day for us even though we were not able to dine out and celebrate because of our work schedule. We just woke up early because we have to go to office. She always cook my food for lunch. During our lunch time when I was about to take out my lunch, I saw a white piece of paper outside my lunch box with a note: “I love you Myumi!” I discovered that the paper is not an ordinary paper but a photograph of us:




The first time I saw that pillow I knew that she’ll like it because she loves dogs. We are both dog lovers. As you can see, the pillow has images of two cute puppies. The pillow is quite big and it’s quite a hassle on my way home. Me and Kat lives in one house with her sister, so I did hide my gift because I want to surprise her.

She made a collage of our photographs together. I was amazed and overwhelmed. I really love it!  We were very happy last night! We are planning to continue the celebration in this coming weeks. We are hoping to go to Tagaytay to celebrate if the weather permits us to do so.

Belated happy anniversary to both of us! This gift is priceless!

It was already 9pm but Kat hasn’t arrived. When she entered our room, she turned off the lights. When the I turned on the lights. She gave this gift to me:



Me and Jhay-R went to SM Megamall in the afternoon to buy a gift for Kat. I was not able to give her a gift last year, so I really pursued to buy something yesterday for that special day. I was having difficulties in choosing a gift because Kat is not that appreciative when it comes to gifts unless she really likes it. We went to Blue Magic and buy this pillow:



I was surprised. We really have many pictures together online, in my ipod and in our personal computer but we don’t have printed copies of those pictures. We’ve been busy with so many things that we don’t have time to print all the pics. I kept the picture and put it inside my wallet. That was our first printed photograph ever.
