After my monday shift I went straight home and surf the net for a bit. I've decided to render restday overtime for Tuesday night, I thought of taking advantage of it because it was my restday and at the same time it's OT there is going to be an extra pay for going to work for Tuesday and another thing is there is going to be 100 sodexho GC per hour so it's +800 GC for the day.
So like the usuall working day, Tuesday went fine and afer work I decided to hit the gym for 2 hours. After my workout I went to my girlfriend's house because she filed a leave for this day for us to be together. I can say I missed her so much even though I'm with her last Saturday. I slept when I arrived because I was so tired and sleepy because of work (office) and workout (gym). We talked about our work and our incomings plans for December and next year.Played with my bebe's cats and dogs. We also watched the tube and watch PBA which is my favorite TV show and luckily Sta. Lucia Realtor has a game against San Miguel Beer and Joseph Yeo my basketball idol scored 38 points damn he was amazing. After PBA we watched Survivor Philippines. Around 12mn I decided to go home because it was raining and my girlfriend has work on the next day so she needs to go to sleep already.
I can say I had a quality tuesday and wednesday because usually I'm just in front of the computer all day long surfing the net and watching Sentai stuffs. Hopefully next week I'll think of something interesting todo on my restday!

I was on leave from November 12 - 15 so after all of my misadventures and gimiks from wednesday to friday here comes Saturday. I was really excited because this day is for me and my girlfriend. It's been a while since we've been together in a Saturday just like it used to be with the previous years because usually saturday is my off but since I transferred to Alabang I was stucked in my Tue-Wed off =(
So there I woke up 1pm because of the gimik at ascend (Mossimo blog) on the previous night. My girlfriend went to our house around 2pm and we stayed their until 6pm and we decided to go to Alabang Town Center to have our dinner and watch a movie. We arrived 6:45pm and I bring Toki (my cam) with me because I recall that Urbandub will be playing. So before we ate dinner we watched Urbandub first. Nyctinasty played first before Urbandub and damn it was really crazy, I can say I really do enjoy watching them play. I took some photos of their gig.
After Urbandub we ate at Shakeys and then stroll around ATC and bought tickets for the last full show for Madagascar 2. We stayed at Powerbooks for a while and read some books and then when it's around 9:30 we went to the Cinema lobby and then decided to enter the cinema room and watch. Madagascar 2 was really a good and funny movie, I admit that I'm not a fan of cartoons or kiddie movies but I can say I like this movie. Movie ended around 12mn and then we decided to go home and take a rest. I'll miss this Saturday and hope me and my girlfriend can have more time this coming 2009 xoxo

(continuation of my Up Dharma Down blog *still the same day 11/14/2008)
after Podium I went to Glorietta to meet my friend Alex who is waiting for me there. When I arrived I ate at Burger King because I was really hungry. I thought my friend Wavs would join as but he's not replying so me and Alex went to ascend after finishing my food at Burgre King. We arrived around 10 pm and damn the club is jam packed.
The event was for Mossimo's 10th anniversary and it's an exclusive party and we are lucky to go in. Alot of photographers and people are there to watch the fashion show. Saw alot of personalities like Kiko from Survivor, Jacq Yu, Nyoy Volante, Keana Reeves and the models (Joyce So, Cherry Ann, Gail Nicolas, Ornussa Cadness and more)
Had a hard time taking photos of the said event because there's alot of people who is already in front and because of the smoke effect. After the event me and my friend was able to go to the model's area and had the oppurtunity for picture taking and autograph signing. Had my Toys magazine (Joyce So) and FHM Lingerie signed by Joyce So. We also met Gabi dela Merced at the said event. Saw Avi Siwa and had us come in the Skype VIP room to take pictures.
Went home early because my friend Robin is going to Antipolo and Alex needs to go home as well. Till next party..see you!

After the UST and Baste game I went to the Podium because I saw in musik lokal's website that Up Dharma down will be at The Podium (7pm). When I arrived at the place, I saw a party like event. Red carpet, wine and foods then I saw that there is a stage in front and the Up Dharma album cover is there, so I said this is the event. But as I discovered that it was the opening of the A-Shop (Apple/MAC) at the Podium and Up Dharma will perform. Saw Senatro Allan Cayetano and Pia Cayetano, Brent Javier, Amber and the Gosengfiao sisters (Ashley and Alodia). What I did was approached them and chat with Ashley first about their bands gig and then with Alodia about photography *damn it was like a dream. Because during cosplay events honestly it is really hard to get near Alodia and have a photo with her because she's really famous in the cosplay industry and during that time I was chatting with her like normal friends.
Anyways moving forward Alodia introduced to me the owner of Max Collector then after that we went in front (near the stage) and watched Up Dharma Down as they performed. I took photos of them and so as Ashley and Alodia. After Up Dharma is done me, Ashley and Alodia went to the backstage to have pictures with the band. Eventhough I don't want to leave, I said goodbye to them because my friend Alex is already waiting for me at Glorietta.
*to be continued Mossimo Anniversary at Ascend Bar

November 11, 2008 and it's a friday and luckily my leave in the office was approved so I really wanted this day to be special and full of activities. I woke up around 10am and surf the net for an hour. My first plan is to do to Tektite building in Ortigas to get my ordered Rachel Anne Daquis FEU Shakey's V-League jersey and I was supposed to be there by 1 and I got there 2:45pm. I rode the busy up to Ayala and then MRT up to Ortigas. I met my friend from PeopleSupport Richard (too) and he accompanied me to Tektite. After Tektite we went to "The Arena" (damn traffic) in San Juan hoping to still catch FEU's game against Ateneo when we arrived and are about to buy tickets luckily I saw Rachel Anne Daquis going to the FEU bus already so I panicked and get the Daquis jersey that I just bought and had it signed. Wasn't able to have a picture with her (this time) because she's in a hurry. I just took a picture of her holding my signed jersey. FEU won the game and they are on the semis and will go back to watch their games. Thanks Rachel for signing my jersey!

I can say I'm a big fan of chinita girls and when I saw Joyce So I really find her pretty and of course sexy. Then one time early this year around May I was informed by my friends that Joyce So will be guesting the HSN (Hot Summer Nights) car show at SM Mall of Asia parking lot, so I brought my Joyce So FHM's and went to the venue. Saw my friends (Robin, Mark, Drew, Chi and more).
We saw that Joyce So would be with Gail Nicolas and Cherry Ann Kubota in the particular event. I actually called-in that day in the office to tell that I'm sick but actually I'm not for the sake of the event. We spoked with the FHM peeps and they told us that unfortunately Joyce So can't make it and MC Quiazon would replace her. Awwwchh it really sucks big time because I was really damn excited to meet her. We just enjoyed the car show event and also glad in a way to meet Cherry Ann and Gail for the first time on that event.
After several months I saw the November issue of FHM and saw Joyce So in the cover so I thought that this would be the time that I should see her in person. Me and my friends planned to attend the Radio Tour (we can't wait before the signing) same thing I bought my Joyce So stuff and when we arrived the booth, Joyce So and Jacq Yu is now with them only Precious, Gail and Cherry Ann. Damn again for the second tme I felt bad again but I just thought that I shouldn't feel bad because she's going to be in the FHM signing on the weekends.
Weekends came (saturday) and I was planning to attend the UP AME (cosplay) and will just attend the FHM signing part 2 at Rob Place on Sunday but I know Joyce would be there so I just cancelled UP AME and just attended the FHM event. It's the first time I saw her and I can san it's worth the waiting hehe she was really pretty and very nice. Took photos of her, had my magazine signed and had a picture with her. Hope to see her in the future. It was a dream come true for me =)
One of my most waited event every month is the FHM's autographn signing. I'm excited because I can take pictures, meet my friends, have my magazine signed and of course meet the cover girl/s. November is not an ordinary month for FHM because it is their 100th issue so they had 5 girls in the cover. I was planning to attend day  which is Sunday at Rob Place Manila because I'm planning to attend the UP AME (cosplay event at UP) on saturday but I dunno I just thought that I would just prioritize the FHM event (because Joyce So is there *crush)
I filed a swap for this day because I do have work during saturdays and I wanted to enjoy the event. I went with my gf and arrived around 5pm (I guess) Saw my friends Mark, Robin, Alex and more who is already in line for the signing. We decided to buy some drinks at Starbucks first while waiting in the line and also for the planner (I have 3 now and 15 more to go). Saw a lot of friends there Andrew, Arvin, Byron and more. Me and Alex decided to print some pictures in the ground floor before the event start and we are glad when we come back in the Movieworld area, the event just started so we are on time.
We prepared our magazines and also Toki (my cam). I noticed Precious (one of the cover girls) is not present anyways no sad feelings because I already met her during the radio tour. I was able to have my 2 FHM 100th issue signed and my old Joyce So FHM magazines.I also took alot of pictures (in my multiply).
There's alot of people who fall in line and alos people who are just watching the event and the girls while they sign the magazines. After having my magazine signed and having pictures with the ladies. We already left and took our dinner in the Robinson's Food court then went to Alabang and meet my college (DLSU) classmates.

After the FHM radio tour my friends texted me if I would watch MYXMO because Moonstar88 (band) would perform, so I said "why not?" since it's been a while since I watched them play. I went to SM Mall of Asia without any ticket I was, they said I needed to get one for me to go inside. My friend Kawen told me to look for a MYX Magazine (which I did) and damn it was sold out in every magazine stand nd bookstore in MOA. I was feeling hopeless but I still went to the entrance of the backstage of the concert and texted Bhert (Guitarist of Moonstar88), I was there for 15 mins I think because the band has an interview and it was raining. Good thing they gaved me an "Artist Pass" so I was able to go inside (I was so happy). All of the bands and music artist are there, name it Rico Blanco, Bamboo, Pupil, Parokya ni Edgar, Gary V and more.
There is a tent where after every artist is done performing they would be interviewed in that tent so I stayed there and took pictures of every artist (I came late so I missed Bamboo and more) I took alot of pictures and met alot of artist that includes Urbandub, Hale, Mobstars, Kitty Girls, Kamikazee, Hilera, Sponge Cola, Billy Joe Crawford, Gary V, Typecast, Parokya and more.
Despite of the rain I was able to stroll around the backstage and take pictures. Free booze are on two tents damn I keep on coming back.
I was able to go the stage as well to watch the performing artist behind the stage and also to take pictures. Met the MYX VJ's as well like Iya and Nikki Gil.
It was really an experience because all of the artist are there and what more I can say. The crowd watching is almost 80k in attendance. I had fun through out the show but had a hard time going home because there's alot of people.
Watch out for the pictures in my multiply

I fixed my stuff (My magazines) and Toki (my cam). Met my friend Mark and we went to Robinson Galeria to grab a bite first and to buy an extra magazine for my friend who is in the US (Chi). I texted Precious as well that we are going to be there in the radio tour.
Radio tour was okay but only three of the five cover girls was present (Jacq Yu and Joyce So was not there) anyways we are able to had our magazines signed and had a photo with them (I don't have one with Presh). I'll just attend the signing this weekends for Joyce So and Jacq Yu.
I'm really excited this coming Sunday (Rob Ermita) for the signing because it would be my 1st time to meet my crush Joyce So :)

We decided to meet at SM Manila because I don't know how to go to "The Arena Stadium" I woke up 9:30am and our meeting time is before 12 noon in SM Manila so I quickly prepared my stuff and of course Toki (my cam) then went to the meeting place.
I arrived 12:15pm and good thing I make it to the meeting place first before they do. I bought the courtside tickets so I can take pictures of the game and of course to take pictures of the players.
The games for the day are the ff.
1st game : Ateneo vs Adamson *Adamson Won
2nd game: DLSU vs UST *UST Won
3rd game: FEU vs Lyceum * *Lyceum Won
It was my 1st time to watch Shakey V-League live and I can say I enjoyed it. I thought Volleyball was not exciting to watch but I'm wrong.
I took some photos of DLSU players like Manila Santos, ADMU's Charo Soriano, UST's Denise Tan and FEU's Rachel Daquis. I'm now planning to buy a better lens so I can get better pictures in the future. I said to myself I would start watching the V-League because it's really nice watching the games and take note the ticket (courtside) cost only 100 bucks.

Other articles are also cool, the 100 covers, 100 gadgets, music and more. I can say that FHM is getting better as time goes by. That's why they are so far the #1 Men's magazine here in the Philippines. Well hope to see you guys on the signing this weekend and I would take pictures as well using Toki (my cam).
Met my girlfriend who is going to watch our game and also to cheer me :) It was a close game eventhough the team is not complete compared to the opposing team and damn most of them are big guys. We lost the game by 6 points, we wasn't able to break the full court press. Felt bad because I wasn't given enough playing time and I just asked myself "Is it because I'm just new in the team?" anyways now I'm having second thoughts if I would play in our next game or not. The thing is I love the game of basketball so eventhough I can only play for limited minutes that would be enough for me.
After the game me and my girlfriend went to Festival Mall, we strolled around and ate our dinner at Pizza Hut. I was really tired because I still have work at 10pm so after dinner we just strolled around *again* and rest in the cinema lobby then I decided to go to the office to take a 1 hour nap before attending my shift.
On the start of my shift I'm still okay and energized but after several hours I felt sleepy and waited for 7am to come so I can go home right away. It was a long night for me but gald I still managed to survive. I'm also excited because after my shift is already my restday (Monday)

Around 11pm we decided to go to Ascend and good thing we are in the guestlist. We went to the VIP room and met Avi Siwa. We asked permission if we can take photos of the event and she said "why not?" so lucky we are (Me and Alex) we became the official photographer for the event.
We took pictures of Avi and her guest and also people in their halloween costumes. Saw The Flash, Katwoman, Queen Amidala and more. Too bad me and my friends are not in costume (next year probably XD).
We enjoyed unlimited beer and the VIP area of Ascend. Took photos of the people who party that night, saw some familiar face like the people from Tony and Jackey (Korean Hair Salon) where I am a customer *wink and also met new friends in the event. It was my first time to attend a halloween party *to be honest because usually whenever halloween comes I am just stucked at home or at the cemetery with my family but this year was different =)
Before the party ended we managed to have our FHM Magazine signed by Ms. Avi Siwa. Party end around 3:00am and we decided to eat first because we are really starving and then went home and rest.
