Last Thursday, Marvin and I agreed to meet up before the mall opens so we can start our marathon shopping. Since we're both on leave last Friday, we decided to waste our time malling.
I didn't realize my cell batt had one bar na lang, and so it went dead. Instead of meeting before 10PM, past 11Pm na ata kami nagkita. It was terribly raining! - I swear! malalaki ung rains and baha talaga... Marvin and I were in shorts and slippers. :) Hindi ako pwede magshorts kasi I have post varicella scars :( so 3/4's na lang. Rob Manila is on 3-day sale! Kita mo nga naman. ahahaha. I'm happy cause I have money to spend kahit not much. Just bought new stuff to bring to Australia that I can also use here. I just realized I totally need some office wears - new ones - hihihi.
I got home past 8PM and started fitting the things I bought and started packing. As I write this, ENTOURAGE is currently showing in HBO. I'm hurrying to finish so I can watch too.
It's 12:24AM na (Saturday morning) and I'm still here blogging. :) I have to things pa to do later so I have to ciao for now!
.............. to AUSSIE, here I come...................... :)
Gulo ng entry ko - sensya na, windang pa ko - dami ko pa kelangan gawin and yet so little time!

I'm so busy packing, thinking of clothes to wear and to buy cause their temperature ranges from 7.2 C to 17 C -- have to think wisely of clothes I have to buy that I can wear here in manila too.
I need a wardrobe revamp!.. and I need it asap! :)

I was on leave Friday shift so I didn't get to meet marvin on a Saturday morning when he arrived back from Lipa. Fortunately though, we agreed to meet after lunch. We initially planned to watch a movie since we haven't really seen one for quite some time.
Come after lunch, we didn't see a movie because most of the films showing now... napanood na niya - from a pirated DVD. haaaaaaaaaaaaay
We ended up walking lang sa mall, not to mention my first dine at Bacolod Inasal. I scouted a cheap SHUBIZZ shoes, haha - another good buy.
I was home mga 10PM na. There.
Wala pa ring VISA, I'm starting to doubt na. Will the Australian trip be cancelled?
I fairly need another pair of pants, polos for office, office shoes and some blazer. In less than 6K, I got 2 pieces of Bench Slacks, 3 blouses bought from ForMe and Surplus, 2 warmers bought from ForMe, a classic black coat bought from Surplus, and a fashionable Celine shoes in P499.00 - that's what I call super steal! Imagine, I didn't buy more than 700 today. My blouses before were Maldita, Plains and Prints and their regular prices are 700up - so I'm happy that I didn't get to spend much now but I did buy the things I need.
Maybe couple of pants more, another shoes and a designer bag will really make me contented for the next quarter - haha.
To my BF who doesn't get to read this every time, anniversary is near na - I hope you buy me nalang uhmmmm - another havaianas (metallic), a huge office bag, my dream Nine West stilettos or kahit Sale ng Celine! :), another Marissa Levis pants
Hmmmmmn, because of this, it made me wanted to post my wishlist(mga pwede makuha over short period of time), ano nga ba
- another pair of havaianas
- another pair of Happy Feet
- collection of converse Chucks
- People are People shoes

It's Adobe Captivate!
I'm not sure how long this application has been available in the market but it was previously called Macromedia Captivate before Macro and Adobe merged. I tried to research on this product because I saw from Accenture's job posting that one qualification of the specific job I'm reading should be particular with this tool. Indeed, this baby is one powerful tool that masters interactive simulation and walk throughs without the knowledge of programming and extensive flash. I really really liked it because I've been with D/X/HTML for long and I've been wanting to study flash but I just always turn it down cause I find it really complex. I don't have the luxury of time to study it and go in depth about it - not yet. But with captivate, it makes your project really easy by doing the job for you. I sat down for about 15 minutes and viola! - a simulation right at your very own eye. Almost all of the features I would want to have in a specific sim is here. :)
I'm excited to finish my newest project for the team after my OS Vista which not to mention ended with a whopping 45MB file. Hopefully with a compress version of an SWF File, I can have a simulator in a smaller scale.
I'm using a TRIAL version, sana makakita ko ng crack! hihihihi.
Nice Adobe! Thanks!

It started pouring drizzles last Sunday, it'll rain but it'll stop so medyo may mainit pareng factor tuwing afternoon. Local News even reported that this kind of rain is not enough to raise the waters sa dam for 5million people's consumption.
Church has been appealing to everyone to pray for rain. Kasi naman, 2 months hindi umulan sa Pilipinas which were considered to be 'tag-ulan' months. Super answered prayer ng simbahan, umulan nga.
Come Monday, eto na si bagyo na hindi ko alam kung ano pangalan. Ayos lang, medyo ok pa naman ung ulan - normal lang, magaan na ambon kahit walang tigil. According to PAGASA, it would not hit the Philippines, habagat lang kung aakyat sya diretso ng Japan. PagAsa said sana storm takes Taiwan path na lang para tamaan tayo ng bagyo.
Tuesday until now Wednesday, di pa tumitigil ang malakas na ulan na may hangin. Kaninang umuwi ako ng 7AM in the morning, nilusong ko ung flats ko sa tubig with more than 8inches na baha, saya di ba? Currently, as I write this naglilimas si Kae sa kusina namen sa likod ng tumataas ng tubig.
Sana lang wag umabot sa extent na people's lives would be affected badly. Baka paghinto naman ng ulan ipagdasal naten.
Here's what I have from Yahoo!
Early 2007 saw record-breaking extreme weather: U.N.GENEVA (Reuters) - The world experienced a series of record-breaking weather events in early 2007, from flooding in Asia to heatwaves in and snowfall in , the weather agency said on Tuesday.
The(WMO) said global land surface temperatures in January and April were likely the warmest since records began in 1880, at more than 1 degree Celsius higher than average for those months.
There have also been severe monsoon floods across South Asia, abnormally heavy rains in northern Europe,, , and , extreme heatwaves in southeastern Europe and , and unusual snowfall in South Africa and South America this year, the WMO said.
"The start of the year 2007 was a very active period in terms of," Omar Baddour of the agency's World Climate Program told journalists in .
While most scientists believe extreme weather events will be more frequent as heat-trapping carbon dioxide emissions cause global temperatures to rise, Baddour said it was impossible to say with certainty what the second half of 2007 will bring.
"It is very difficult to make projections for the rest of the year," he said.
The(IPCC), a U.N. umbrella group of hundreds of experts, has noted an increasing trend in extreme weather events over the past 50 years and said irregular patterns are likely to intensify.
South Asia's worst monsoon flooding in recent memory has affected 30 million people in, and , destroying croplands, livestock and property and raising fears of a health crisis in the densely-populated region.
Heavy rains also doused southern China in June, with nearly 14 million people affected by floods and landslides that killed 120 people, the WMO said.
England and Wales this year had their wettest May and June since records began in 1766, resulting in extensive flooding and more than $6 billion in damage, as well as at least nine deaths.swung from its driest April since country-wide observations started in 1901 to its wettest May on record.
suffered its worst floods in six years in February, followed by a tropical cyclone the same month, and flooding of the in June caused damage in .
had its worst flooding since 1959 in May.
Huge swell waves swamped some 68 islands in thein May, resulting in severe damage, and the Arabian Sea had its first documented cyclone in June, touching and Iran.
Temperature records were broken in southeastern Europe in June and July, and in western and central Russia in May. In many European countries, April was the warmest ever recorded.
and saw unusually cold winter temperatures in July while had its first significant snowfall since 1981 in June.
The WMO and its 188 member states are working to set up an early warning system for. The agency is also seeking to improve monitoring of the impacts of climate change, particularly in poorer countries which are expected to bear the brunt of floods, droughts and storms.
Grabe na ito, we need to continuously pray for everyone's safety.

ST. THOMAS AQUINAS: PRAYER FOR GUIDANCE
O creator past all telling,
you have appointed from the treasures of your wisdom
the hierarchies of angels,
disposing them in wondrous order
above the bright heavens,
and have so beautifully set out all parts of the universe.
You we call the true fount of wisdom
and the noble origin of all things.
Be pleased to shed
on the darkness of mind in which I was born,
The twofold beam of your light
and warmth to dispel my ignorance and sin.
You make eloquent the tongues of children.
Then instruct my speech
and touch my lips with graciousness.
Make me keen to understand, quick to learn,
able to remember;
make me delicate to interpret and ready to speak.
Guide my going in and going forward,
lead home my going forth.
You are true God and true man,
and live for ever and ever.
--St Thomas Aquinas, 1225-74

The Greenhouse EffectThe atmosphere has a natural supply of "greenhouse gases." They capture heat and keep the surface of the Earth warm enough for us to live on. Without the greenhouse effect, the planet would be an uninhabitable, frozen wasteland.
Before the Industrial Revolution, the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere was in a rough balance with what could be stored on Earth.
Natural emissions of heat-trapping gases matched what could be absorbed in natural sinks. For example, plants take in CO2 when they grow in spring and summer, and release it back to the atmosphere when they decay and die in fall and winter.
Too Much Greenhouse EffectIndustry took off in the mid-1700s, and people started emitting large amounts of greenhouse gases. Fossil fuels were burned more and more to run our cars, trucks, factories, planes and power plants, adding to the natural supply of greenhouse gases.
The gases -- which can stay in the atmosphere for at least fifty years and up to centuries -- are building up beyond the Earth's capacity to remove them and, in effect, creating an extra-thick heat blanket around the Earth.
The result is that the globe has heated up by about one degree Fahrenheit over the past century -- and it has heated up more intensely over the past two decades.
If one degree doesn't sound like a lot, consider this: the difference in global average temperatures between modern times and the last ice age -- when much of Canada and the northern U.S. were covered with thick ice sheets -- was only about 9 degrees Fahrenheit.
So in fact one degree is very significant -- especially since the unnatural warming will continue as long as we keep putting extra greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
