my travel journal..

it's about time to write again, to write about the things that keeps me busy and drains my savings account...

now i am not travelling alone, meet rian, my new travel partner...

now, mountain is our solace and the sea, our consolation...we always look forward on the long drives to reach our destination and to meet new people and to see the world in the eyes of a traveller.

Leisure trips...ARMS deployment

aside from climbing mountains, and going on  trips with limited budget....i am blessed that i got to go to places and experience the best hotels and restaurants the place has to offer because of work...

i am now in the deployment phase of my first major project in my company, di ko akalain na malaki ang project at maraming taong involved from the different groups...

Asset Risk Management System...isang database system ng buong FCRS ng mga geothermal plants sa lahat ng project sites sa pilipinas. di lang sya tambakan ng data, maraming processed data ang kelangan iproduced para sa napaka-technical na output...wala akong alam sa basic engineering  khet computer engineering ang course ko sa kolehiyo...zero knowledge...basic electronics meron kaunting kaalaman...ewan ko ba!!! mashadong nakasandal ang mga major subjects ng com eng ng lasal sa mga computer science theories....

pero salamat sa project na ito....maraming lugar ang napuntahan ko sa buong pilipinas...marami akong nakilalang tao sa trabaho....at ang pinaka-importante sa lahat unti-unti kong nakikilala ang sarili ko kung hanggang saan ang kaya kong gawin....kung paano ko harapin ang  stress at demands ng trabaho...

dumaguete deploymnent last feb 21-24, systems demonstration to my beloved users...

leyte deployment with ate carl last jan 23-27...

last year's first trip to dumaguete for systems analysis and design..

ang peak ng mt. apo....during the installation of the first module of my project last sept...

eventhough we have to work during these trips....di nakaklimutan ng grupo ang mag-side trip for rest and recreation...R&R ika nga....

sa isa at kalahating taon ko sa kumpanya....more than 10 byahe na sa mga sites ang nagawa ko....masaya kung minsan, may mga panahon naman na nakakapagod ng sobra dahil na din siguro sa pressure ng trabaho....i am not complaining pero masaya pa din ang bumyahe for leisure and not for work....

Pinatubo Climb

at dahil sa kagustuhan kong umakyat ulit ng bundok, at dahil na rin  sa kadahilanan na wala akong makasama, naglakas-loob akong sumama sa isang fun climb ng isang grupo na nakita ko sa internet...mabait naman sila at accomodating...

matapos ang nakakapagod kong deployment sa geothermal plant sa dumaguete sa visayas, habang nagkakagulo sa edsa at makati, umalis ulit ako ng maynila nung nakaraan weekend  upang magpakapagod sa napaka-habang lakaran papunta sa crater ng pinatubo. mahirap dahil wala akong constant companion, kung sino lang ang makasabay ko sa trail. un lang.

marami akong natutunan sa akyat kong ito. kaya ko pala makisama sa isang grupo na wala akong kaibigan o kakilala man lang, panimulang praktis ito para sa isang malaki at mas malayong byahe na pinaghahandaan ko kung saan wala akong kilala at walang maasahan.. nagkaroon din ako ng mas mahabang panahon na makapagmuni-muni ng mas matagal habang tinatanaw ang kagandahan ng paligid...

isang mahalagang aral ang  natutunan ko sa pinatubo climb na ito.....ang isang bagay na nagdulot ng masama sa nakakararami tulad na lang nang pagputok ng bulkan nuong 90's ay maaring magdulot din ng kagandahan at kabutihan sa tamang panahon... naka-move on na ang mga naninirahan dito, at isa na itong  tourist spot kung saan  napakaraming turista ang nakasalubong namen ang nabighani sa lugar.

ang grupong  nag-ampon sa kin para makarating sa pinatubo....

ang mainit at maalikabok na lakaran....buti nalng maganda ang panahon...

maraming streams ang kelangan tawirin, matapos mabasa ang sapatos ng tubig, buhangin naman ang kalaban.....hehehehe

batang ligaw...

at ang pinakamalupit sa lahat..ang pinatubo crater..

malamig ang tubig.....

sa lahat nang nakilala ko sa pinatubo climb, maraming salamat....sana makasama pa ko sa mga susunod ninyong akyat...

sunday@work

mushy lyrics of rock songs are making me teary-eyed in a deserted office, while eating chips ahoy and left over sausage mcmuffin for lunch at the same time testing my stupid application in the leyte server over the slow  vsat communication line.

i am doomed...

drama mode

i am creating my own destruction...
it's about time to gear up my self-preservation suit again....
before it's too late...

'Cause now again I've found myself
So far down, away from the sun
That shines into the darkest place
I'm so far down, away from the sun again
Away from the sun again
- Away From the Sun, 3 Doors Down

**drama mode**

My 2005

2005 was a good year for me... i was able to go places both for work and leisure...from way up north to the mindanao region to the south easthern part of asia... i was able to climb mountains, swam in seas, sunbathed under the sun, observed the moon in its brightest, rode the motorcyle under the heavy rains and simply enjoy whatever.

oracle was my companion at work, learning the bulk of my job..i  started with the development of my project middle of 2005 and in the process of deploymet early this year. it was tiring , yet i was able to learn my threshold.

i was so blessed that i do not only have officemates who helped me with my office work, but i was able to create friendships which will be kept for a long time...tropsters on top of the list(hehhheh)...

love tried to get in the way, it was fun spending time with a special person , but it is still better to have a long time friendship than a short-term relationship....diferences were settled, and we both know that we will always be special to each other..

friends were everywhere, from the classic high school barkada and college blockmates to the ex-officemates from my first job...new friendships were established and acquaintances were re-established...

i am more financially grounded this year, with a little more money to spare for myself and my family. just enough to suffice my need to go to places and my occassional credit card abuse.

for 2006, i want to do something worthwhile...continue with my CISCO classes, organize and attend more outreach events...climb more mountains...spend more time with my lolo and lola...travel the philippines...go to school again...think about getting my masters...discover my artistic side...spend more time with people i barely see....study a new computer language...go to Sagada before i turn 25..

but one thing is for sure...2006 will definitely be a year of opportunities to achieve whatever His plans for me..

i want to start this year right, and i want to do a lot of things for the first time...target shooting was first on the list..it was scary at first, but it was all worth it....i got 7 bullet holes on the alpha square out of the 50 bullets...hmmm 14% target shooter... i was a natural said the trainer (pwede na mag part time na security guard)...

high school friends...

Aside from preparing for the usual xmas holiday, december was extra special because one of our high school friend was in the country. after not seeing her for almost 7 years, we were all happy to spend most of our free time with her...

getting wasted and simply enjoying each other's company... 

and what better way to remember high school...we went to a studio to have our group picture taken...a very high-schoolish activity....hehehehheh

to our dear friend patty, it may take another 7 years or more before you see us again...however no time nor distance can stop us from being your friends...

God loves me soo much for giving me these people....
