Toni's Postsecret

This is from my former officemate who recently transferred to a different company. It's a good move for her & I'm happy for her.

What I'm happier about is this message she gave me just before she left. It's called a postsecret only because this officemate of mine, Toni, is the one who would supply almost the entire office with weekly updates on postsecret.blogspot.com.

It's a message I cherish, which is why I'm reposting this on my site -- and I so love the pics she used... here it is:

Dear Mitzi,

Well, it's not exactly a secret. This is more a "thank-you and see you around" note. Because I'm more comfortable writing things than I am saying them, this is a note for you, of things I want to share with you but never have. So I guess it's our little secret in a way.














I'm very proud of how you've grown as a planner. I enjoy hearing you take charge of Nokia and Kraft. When the BAT and Accounts people come up to your desk and ask you questions, seek clarification, and you give them the answers, I smile. It feels like you're watching your little sister grow up. Something like that. I'm proud of you. Keep growing.










I also admire that when you seek clarification yourself, you don't hesitate to ask. That's one of the most important ways to grow -- to acknowledge that we don't know everything, and then learn from those who may know, and are willing to help.

I admire how spiritual you are. I have my own kind of relationship with God, and when I see you or hear your stories, I am reminded of how to become even closer to Him. Thank you for being that quiet mentor. You teach by example, perhaps without your knowing. Thank you for the spiritual and heartwarming e-mails that help remind me of putting some focus back on my faith.

I wish I had your height. Hahaha!















Thank you for putting up with my mood swings.











When you make kwento about yourself and JB, natutuwa ako. I'm reminded of fresh, new love. I'm thankful for that because I still see that kind of love in my relationship with Dennis. So keep that fresh love going. Keep on surprising each other. :)













You have potential Mitzi. I wish you would be given the opportunity to attend seminars and trainings, because I know that with those tools and experiences, you will grow even more. You've got sass that comes out once in awhile, that I know should come out even more. Continue to be strong. You're super bait and I hope that kindness is not abused by any co-worker. Stand your ground, always. You're a strong woman.

































You know that I'll be here till May 15th but I thought I'd get the sentimental stuff out of the way. Haha. I don't think I can handle a surge of emotions next week. I'm looking forward to our lunch date tomorrow. Thanks for the kindness and the love little sister. I will miss you.

All the best,
Toni

My Gift for Gel on His 25th!

Hope this finally gets posted as I've been having so much trouble uploading it :)

This was my gift to JB on his 25th bday. Mejo nagkaroon ng glitches because he wasn't able to see it on the day itself because for some reason we couldn't find it and play it from their dvd player.

Actually, I should say that this is a labor of love. I thought it would only take me a couple of hours to put this video together. It ended up being a whole day... well maybe a whole half of a day, meaning from after lunch til midnight.

I learned (again) however, the importance of having someone check your work before 'submitting' it! Because when i was showing it to my sister she noticed something wrong in one of the texts I incuded. And the mistake I made was on OUR ANNIVERSARY DATE!!! nyah! Buti nalang alam niya date ng anniv namin ni JB. Coz what was written was a glaringly big date that's a DAY AHEAD! hahaha.... I have an excuse for that. I was reminiscing how I 'answered' JB in the wee morning of July 28th over the phone -- yup, just over the phone and, okay, so i blurted out my 'i love u' without being asked anymore.heheh. just had to say it he needn't ask no more.hehe). So there written on one of the slides is the date 27 July 2006... what a mistake that is right? hahaha...

So I had to redo that slide, in the process of which i saw more typos and fixed those slides too. And burn it again in the CD. Good thing the one i got was a rewritable one. So i just had to delete the old video and burn it again in the CD which also included a lot song tracks which i knew he wanted to have so he'll have something to listen to at the office.

Those revisions I did on the day I'll be meeting him (on his bday), coz i only finished it the first time just the night before. Actually, as i remember it now, it was already wrapped when my sister discovered the typo when I was showing her the copy of the video... Haha, so i not only had to revise and reburn, I also re-wrapped... heheh

But it was all worth it. Though it was delayed and all... the moment he was able to see the video in the midst of the songs, like a gem in the middle of a field, he texted me with a gazzillion smileys and told me how he loved what i made for him and was at that moment, teary-eyed... it was all worth it... for my Gel...

Now i hope this video posts well...

The Evolution of Text Language

My goodness how filipinos are such linguists!Young people have been able to make another language all on their own, yet again. (well, they seem to have done so since SMS has become the norm.) But now, it's not just about coming up with just one or two colloquial terms.... it's an entirely new language!

See if you can read what's written below. Saw this posted in the site of another clueless individual. Try decoding it and I think you'll find some foul language also inserted within the text.

This is not just your good ol' horse or 'tigidy' language (if any of you is aware of that), but this seems to be pretty mainstream text language to a chunk of our young ones as mobile/online text language.

Decoding it, one finds the filipino youth's penchant for creativity, personalization and breaking norms for the sake of the first two ideals, even in the simple act of writing text.

Maybe a screaming copy written this way will get the attention of the young jologs market (which is big i believe), or maybe an english version of such language could also be of use to get their attention yet won't be too damaging to brand image.

Or maybe there's still more to this that we should try to understand... but then again, maybe there's none.

Just a thought. =)

Sometimes...

Sometimes, when I'm going through something,
I just think about you...
I think of you and yearn to be able to talk to you...
But most of the time,
I can't seem to get a hold of you
(hopefully, it's only temporary).

And i do wonder...
If you are indeed someone I can talk to...

I hope so..
Because I hope to spend the rest of my life with you ....

Officially Missing You

I thought I'm over it. The super strong feeling of missing someone. Once I thought that i could handle the scarce communication and moments of being together. It's a different thing altogether once you do get to see each other but don't really get to 'be' together.

So near yet so far. I realized I could handle those extended days we can't get to be together or can't really get to talk much, but only if those days are sufficiently filled in between with true quality time together.

This is just to say that I so miss his company. Meaning his company with his attention solely focused on ME!... that is so scarce now... I miss our simple, happy banter. Joking and kidding around. The mushy, cheezy and corny exchanges and well, just really spending time with each other.

I'm tired of sneaking a few minutes or a couple of hours at the end of the day to 'catch up' on stuff or to have a few moments together. I don't know if other people can get what I'm driving at.

I love it that we're there for each other for ordinary days. Or that we're there for each other even if we're not together. That we make plans for stuff. Or that we include other people in our plans. But I think we should have moments when it's not just about talking about everyday stuff or talking about plans, but really having time to spend to just enjoy each other's company.

A trip somewhere or find a nice and cozy hang out. So we can really talk. While we do grow and get to know each other better by being together and seeing each other move in our real life spaces. We can't discount the fact that we also still continue to get to know each other when we get to talk, chat and know what the other thinks about or how the other thinks about things.

Yun lang, I guess, that's just what I'm missing. Because it's been a long time since we've had real quality time where we can just have each other to ourselves. I just really miss that, and that's what I'm longing for now....

Konting tiis nalang...hehehe :)
