Recent Realizations

recent realizations:

1. The world is round. you might be at the top now but you may go way down the next second. beware!

2. Relationship (Friendship, bf-gf, family etc.) is reciprocity, mutuality. "Do unto others what you want others do unto you." Don't offend if you don't want to be offended. GIve if you want to receive. That simple.

* "Do not do to others what would anger you if done to you by others." – Isocrate

3. "It is the latest pathetic excuse from an administration that never admits a mistake, no matter how disastrous." - J Lockhart.

i can only agree! disastrus indeed.

4. what goes around comes around. Do your job well and everything will go smoothly. DO NOT pass on to others what you can do for the situation. Resolution is in your hands.

5. Cutting off people who keeps you from growing feels good. I tried and it is good. Especially if these people are selfish brats.


Frustrating Weekend

Frustrating Weekend

I was at Patients First last saturday. I was refered by a friend to a good OB-Gyne there to have myself checked because it's been 4 months since my last period. (this has been happening since the start of my menstruation days.) I had spotting last week for a day then it stopped. I was at the clinic for 4 hours. Having them check on my ovaries and all.

I was diagnosed to have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). I have cyst on both ovaries (actually it's some kind of eggs not going out of my ovary which takes up space to be used so my eggs don't mature). I was shocked at first but then i said, damn, so what?! right? I was thinking this way until the doctor prescribed me metformin which i have to take for a year! What?! that serious?! I was devastated. Doc said PCOS will decrease my chances of getting pregnant. Also, she told me I have to be cured by the meds i was prescribed with in a year or i have to conceive. duh?! Im only 21 now. Im not yet ready to have a baby. The hell!

I am checking on PCOS information online today only to find out that I have no reason to fret at all. Yes, im sick but it can be treated. PCOS is more of endocrine problem than reproductive. It has something to do with my insulin level. (my body repels insulin accdg to the doctor and so i was to take metformin which is my dad's med for diabetes). It's really good to be informed of the things you are experiencing. Thanks to the net!

The symptoms of PCOS include, but are not limited to the following:

* irregular or no menstrual periods
* acne
* obesity/weight gain/inability to lose weight - now i know why im fat :(
* breathing problems while sleeping
* depression
* oily skin
* infertility
* skin discolorations
* high cholesterol levels
* elevated blood pressure
* excess or abnormal hair growth and distribution
* pain in the lower abdomen and pelvis
* multiple ovarian cysts
* skin tags

Q: What causes polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?
A: The cause of PCOS is unknown. Most researchers think that more than one factor could play a role in developing PCOS. Genes are thought to be one factor. Women with PCOS tend to have a mother or sister with PCOS. Researchers also think insulin could be linked to PCOS. Insulin is a hormone
that controls the change of sugar, starches, and other food into energy for the body to use or store. For many women with PCOS, their bodies have problems using insulin so that too much insulin is in the body. Excess insulin appears to increase production of androgen. This hormone is made in fat cells, the ovaries, and the adrenal
gland. Levels of androgen that are higher than normal can lead to acne, excessive hair growth, weight gain, and problems with ovulation.

Q: Does polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) put women at risk for other health problems?
A: Women with PCOS have greater chances of developing several serious, life-threatening diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and cancer. Recent studies found that:
● More than 50 percent of women with PCOS will have diabetes or pre-diabetes (impaired glucose tolerance)
before the age of 40.
● Women with PCOS have a four to seven times higher risk of heart attack than women of the same age without PCOS.
● Women with PCOS are at greater risk of having high blood pressure.
● Women with PCOS have high levels
of LDL (bad) cholesterol and low levels of HDL (good) cholesterol.

Too Much!

Too Much

Current Work Scenario:

Day 1: Delayed Greeting
*** yadaah yadaah!

Day 2: Customer Callback
*** yadaah yadaah!

Day 3: Medical Evaluations
*** yadaah yadaah!

***Broadcast messages via IM sent to the whole team almost twice a day.

There is a concept of too much. Please, STOP! It isn't funny anymore. Fine, it is ok to remind your team. Fine, you are just doing your job. But please, learn to air out these concerns on proper chanels! That is what WEEKLY feedback sessions are for, for christ's sake!

Sick Leave

Below is the tumbling IM conversation I had regarding clarifications on Sick Leaves. (edited so as you will understand the flow of the conversation.)

Jun 17, 2009
kAt.KaT said at 12:19PM:
** question po pala
kAt.KaT said at 12:19PM:
duns a med eval na email kanina
** said at 12:19PM:
yes po?
kAt.KaT said at 12:19PM:
accdg to the email, Your productivity is set to 0%.

kAt.KaT said at 12:20PM:
is this applicable for SLs as well? ( Sick Leave )
** said at 12:20PM:
yes khat
kAt.KaT said at 12:20PM:
kahit meron med cert?
** said at 12:20PM:
kAt.KaT said at 12:21PM:
kasi my concern is that kung meron med cert and ti-nag ng clinic as SL, wala naman kami magagawa.. kaso parang unfair sa part namin na zero ang prod namin dahil nagkasakit kami
** said at 12:24PM:
** said at 12:24PM:
ganun nga po..
** said at 12:25PM:
parang some things are invetable
kAt.KaT said at 12:25PM:
so kahit may med cert kami, 0% talaga?
kAt.KaT said at 12:25PM:
** said at 12:25PM:
** said at 12:25PM:
parang ganito po kc
** said at 12:25PM:
if med leave, meaning u can't work as is
** said at 12:25PM:
pero pag sick leave.. some people can
** said at 12:25PM:
some people can't
** said at 12:26PM:
parang in between
kAt.KaT said at 12:26PM:
yun na nga po.. pano kung andun sa ka category na hindi na talaga kaya?
kAt.KaT said at 12:26PM:
zero prod ka, zero SA
kAt.KaT said at 12:26PM:
pero nagsubmit ka ng med cert
kAt.KaT said at 12:26PM:
so parang SL is just like call in
** said at 12:27PM:
fema said at 12:27PM:
same with call in
** said at 12:27PM:
pede kang mag call in dahil sa fever
kAt.KaT said at 12:27PM:
parang kasi po ang mangyayari. don't bother getting a med cert nalang. wala din naman effect
** said at 12:27PM:
so, sick leave sya
kAt.KaT said at 12:27PM:
parang ganun
kAt.KaT said at 12:27PM:
ang hirap naman
kAt.KaT said at 12:27PM:
** said at 12:27PM:
tama po.
** said at 12:27PM:
kc, those who submit a med cert
** said at 12:27PM:
are those hoping maging med leave
** said at 12:27PM:
especially ung NCNS
kAt.KaT said at 12:27PM:
ah ok..
kAt.KaT said at 12:28PM:
sige po
kAt.KaT said at 12:28PM:


So, sa aming kompanya (or sa account lang namin.. not sure na rin eh!):

1. Bawal magkasakit. Bawal magka-emergency. Bawal lahat, pati paghinga!

2. Pag meron kang sakit, iisipin parin nila na nagdadahilan ka lang.. ganun talaga ang buhay, wala ka magagawa!

3. Siguruhing i-aapprove ang Medical Leave mo pag nagkasakit ka. Ibig sabihin, siguraduhing mamamatay ka na bago mag-absent sa work!

get it?! good!

Rueda Bldg Fire

Fire hits Makati commercial building
By Abigail Kwok
Posted date: June 18, 2009

MANILA, Philippines— Fire of still unknown origin hit a commercial building in Makati City Thursday afternoon, the city fire department said.

The fire at Campus Rueda Building on Urvan Street started at 3:36 p.m. and has reached Task Force Bravo as of posting time.

At least 20 fire trucks have been deployed to the site.


It was a sad event. I walked from home to work today due to the fire - thankful still that even if my feet hurt, i was not there to experience the said event. We frequent Chiggy's to eat also Sukina to drink after work. While passing through the street awhile ago, i was enveloped by the thought of not having to see chiggy's and sukina open everyday when I walk to and from work. There were at least 20 fire trucks in the area. At least 50 firemen were there to help and 100 "usisero" people looking at the extent of the damage. I even saw a fireman climbing up the building to kill the fire completely.

My feet hurt. But i cannot imagine how much pain the owner, the personnels and the customers who were affected felt when the fire started. My condolences!


Snowy's Video

Snowy sang 3 songs with the band last saturday. Check out one of them here.

I'll post the pix when i have time. =)


I'm Yours

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
And now I'm trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my best test
Nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love
Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing
We're just one big family
It's your God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
My breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed
I guess what I'ma saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

Well no no, well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find the sky is yours
Listen to the music of the moment come and dance with me
A lá one big family (2nd time: A lá happy family; 3rd time: A lá peaceful melody)
It's your God-forsaken right to be loved love love love

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

No please, don't complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

No please, don't hesitate
No more, no more
It cannot wait
The sky is yours!

I just so love this song! =)
