been on vacation on this place, call it extended xmas vacation, or was way too busy with work or maybe i was

just plain too lazy. take your pick.

ok, where to start?

Return of the King?
watched it earlier, was treated on the advanced screening by horace with some fellow artist, like dennis,

aries, katch, kicks and some of horace friends and kins. movie was really cool, except for the wizard who

killed more enemies than aragorn with the use of his sword instead of his magic. what did he really do, not

much if you ask me. he was swinging his sword like crazy instead of firing fireballs and such, maybe he was

more of a knight than a mage, hehehe. weel that was my only gripe. it was also cool seeing the undead, it was

kind of like playing warcraft. might watch all episodes in one sitting when time provides.

xmas vacation.
went to the province with the family to spend xmas vaction on the 23, it was also my other half's bday. spent

the whole trip talking taking naps while little one is making kulit. got home, ate lunch and house was

reconstructed since the time i was home which was months and months ago. damn i miss our house. i can relax

far better there than in manila where i can't even stand straight where we live, ceiling height was designed

for 5 footers, i always bump my head and now my head has lots of nasty bumps and curves already. dreading

the day i go bald and everthing is exposed under the sun.

anyway, xmas celebration seems to be going down under everywhere. life is really getting hard now in this

fucked up country because of stupid politicians, businessmen who can't let go of the money they can grab from

people like us. the government greedy taxes in which there is no escape for an employee like me while big

businesses gets away from paying their duties. then you see the situation where the squatters are being given

houses bu they just sell it and squat again, repeating the circle. why can't the government just give the

houses to people like me who pays taxes, where working our butts off and what do we get, being in the middle

sucks, a lot of people in this country sucks big time, maybe it's better if they just suck each other, and

maybe just maybe this country will be better off.

ok enough ranting. to the mff

so xmas time, i was contacted by my partner in one of our projects. he texted and called on my phone several

times asking me to go to work to fix something. we'll what choice do i have, none really. so the next day, we

were on our way back to manila, and were home by lunch time. went to the office and reaad lots of emails and

boards. my partner didn't even come to work, damn. so there i fixed whatever needed fixing and went home.

the next time, my famile were off to watch captain barbell, i chose it over fantastic man which my kid really

wanted to watch. my decision was based as a respect to ate rita regarding the lastikman fiasco. the movie was

cool enough for kids but not for people like me who have more time to scrutinized stuff. the movie was

forgivable enough, with all the cheesiness in it, after all i'm not the target audience. kids was happy and

was really noisy. then we went home and just had dinner at the house, cause i am nearly broke.

the next day, i was back working on other stuff, flatting pages and it took me almost a week to finish the

pages, with all the details in it. money was good enough and i was forced to buy a cd writer because there is

no way for me to deliver the files without it.

then came the new year.
was fighting to really spend much but we were able to have a small feast on a limited budget, becuase of the

menu i chose. really super saver stuff. had to go to the supermarket to buy the stuff we needed. and by the

afternoon me and my wifey were busy preparing the food while little one was content on watching cable tv.

which he does always, everyday.

then the big banging came, really very noisy. a lot of the firecrackers being used in the neighborhood are

illegal, but that's always the situation here. i didn't buy explosives, was content on watching tv/ playing

in the pc. soon new year came, we didn't bother going out, just watched the celebration on tv. and same as xmas, the new year is soooo unlike the past new year, maybe a lot of people are suffering now than iin the past. blame those damn politicians, it's always their fault.

so a new year, new challenges, new hopes, new problems, same problems.
