I am crazy about this game on my PSP (yes boyfriend, it is still mine! hehehe) – PATAPON!
It is a simple game – but not too easy! It’s like Dance Dance Revolution but on PSP, and there’s a story 🙂

The little Patapon characters are so cute and the colors so vibrant, and the music – it sticks with you. Yes it does. The beat has been with me constantly, hahaha. Go to the website and listen to it!

I’m gonna miss it in the next 5 days. Boyfriend took the PSP with him on his trip with his family. Aw.


Here’s a tag from Dette from Dance of the Motherhood:

4 Jobs I’ve Had:

  • Administrative Assistant and Assistant Trainer

4 Shows on my TiVo/DVR:
We do not have TiVo here and I have not mastered the art of recording a TV show on DVR. Hehe. Here are 4 shows currently still being shown on TV that I would like to record or would hunt DVDs for

  • House, MD
  • E.R.
  • Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus! (yes, I am a reality TV junkie too and I haven’t been able to tune in to this season)
  • Palos (another admission – I am a teleserye and even a Koreanovela addict at times, it helps me destress)

  • Stockholm, Sweden
  • Yokohama, Japan
  • Bangkok, Thailand

4 Favorite Foods:

  • Spaghetti
  • Salmon Sashimi!

4 CD’s Recently Listened To:

Let’s just say 4 artists I’ve recently listened to?

  • Say ‘Thank you’ to people who have helped you or who have done or said something nice to you.
  • Give me a hug.
  • Tell me what made you smile today, or what I can do to help make your day 🙂

4 People I Tag:

Adam is turning 1!

One of my best girlfriend’s baby is turning 1 year old on the 18th. I am looking forward to that because (I’m afraid to admit) I haven’t visited him ever. 🙁

I would so love to hear comments… 🙂

On another matter…

What I love most about my boyfriend (a tag from Tracy):

  • He understands my shortcomings.
  • He indulges my videoke addiction (haha!)
  • He’s good with kids.
  • He is a dog lover (yup, mine too Tracy). He is my Zune’s personal groomer.
  • He’s like a kid sometimes.
  • We love shopping together.
  • He’s my personal computer guy.
  • He resists when I tell him what he doesn’t like hearing, but accepts it in time.
  • I would not need to cook for him, he’ll take care of it 🙂
  • He slides in first in the backseat of cabs – I don’t like having to do that, so unlike most, it’s not ladies first when we ride a taxi.
  • He encourages me to dream bigger and reach higher.
  • He is working his way to being the best him that he can be.
  • Though our personalities and interests are as different as night and day, we complement each other.
  • Wherever he is, I feel at home.
  • There’s nothing that I really love best about him, I just love all of him.

Summers are not good for daytime sleeping

I have been awake for more than 24 hours. Ok, there may have been an hour’s sleep somewhere there, and a few minutes here and there since I came home, but I am just not rested and my body just refuses to stay put and go to sleep. Must be because it is so darn hot!

One thing I’ve been thankful for the past month is having been in the day shift at work – I don’t have to endure this afternoon heat and toss and turn and sweat instead of getting my much needed sleep. But thanks to events outside of our control, I will have to go back to the night shift next week.

I don’t know how long that’s going to be, but I sure hope it’s only for the week.

Is there anything good about moving to the new schedule (or rather back to my old one)? Well, I’d have a four-day weekend starting today until tuesday morning 🙂 That’s the silver lining – the only one I see. For now.

So anyway, I clocked in about 14 hours at work last night. Had to get things done. I only felt giddy on the last hour (bordering on exhaustion) and surprisingly, that was the only time I was also really sleepy.

Music & Lyrics

Ok, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen this movie, but every time I do, I enjoy it. I sing the song over and over sometimes 🙂

Thanks to Tracy who posted this video over at her blog, I now know the lyrics to Alex Fletcher’s very own composition, the one he wrote and performed at the concert. Yes, the one that got the girl 🙂 It’s not my favorite song, it isn’t as catchy nor poetic (sorry, I am not a literary genius ok) as Way back into love but it’s got magic. With songs, sometimes, it’s the thought that counts. Or rather, it’s how it makes you feel that matters. And who wouldn’t have a soft spot for someone who sings that?

14 Vera Bits

I am such a procrastinator aren’t I? I missed the deadline to yet another challenge, one I really really wanted to participate in. I couldn’t get off work on time so I wasn’t able to finish the layout right away. Was supposed to finish it last night but I got too sleepy and then did not wake up early enough to complete it. I still want to share it with the Sunshine Designers and I do hope they check it out. I don’t mind not getting the goodies (ok, I do, a little. hehe)

I posted a better sized image over at http://verabear.com/14bits.aspx so the journalling can be read better. Check it out from there if you want, but here it is:

I love how it turned out. The 14 bits are totally random. It’s anything about myself that I could think of tonight 🙂
