Inauguration of the Philippines' New President


At exactly 12 noon of June 30, Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III became the new President of the Republic of the Philippines.  It is a holiday today to give a chance for Filipinos to witness this momentous event in the history of the Philippines.  President Noynoy Aquino is the 15th president of the Philippines and the first bachelor to take the highest government position.  The highlight of the ceremony was his first speech as a president.  Aside from the many reforms and projects he mentioned for his term, he said that reconciliation will only happen once justice has been served and that corrupt government officials will be held liable for their act.  His speech lasted for 20 minutes as opposed to the 10-minute duration that was announced earlier.  It was said that P-Noy--the President's moniker, made 9 revisions of his speech because he wanted to deliver everything in detail.  Ninety percent of his speech was  in Tagalog to deliver his message of change to the Filipinos.

The Aquino government promises change but it will only happen if we will unite and help each other.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.

To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?
