Karen's Birthday Wishlist at Ilang Ka-Emo-han

Nung mas bata bata pa ako, 1 month before and after my birthday, which is september 16, pwede na akong mag-umarte. Salamat sa mga kunsintidor kong mga kaibigan, lalo na nung college, hinahayaan nila akong umarte hanggat kelan ko gusto, tutal 2 buwan lang naman yun sa loob ng isang taon. Ngaun, hindi na masyado. Nakakalimutan ko na nga umarte bago ako mag-birthday. Ayoko lang dumating yung time na makalimutan ko pati na yung mismong araw na pala ng birthday ko.


Anyway, for old time's sake, magsusulat pa rin ako ng mga gusto kong matanggap sa birthday ko. Kahit na alam ko, wala diyan yung talagang natutupad. hehe. Kagaya din ng Xmas wishlist, keri na rin, basta may ma-post lang. At me mabasa lang ng mga kaibigan ko--malay ko naman kung balang araw tandaan nila yun. Ayun, eto yung mga malayo at malapit sa katotohonan kong gustong makuha/matanggap:


nikon d60 *umasenso na, d40 lang yan dati eh
ipod 160gb
external dvd rom
dsl connection *spare me from the globe broadband hell. puhleez.
gitara *which I asked my dad to buy at mukang nauto ko naman
fearless album ni taylor swift
havaianas IPE yung green, yung may toucan ata yun. 39-40 ang size ko
jansport na backpack, dahil hindi na kasya yung mga gamit ko papuntang unibersidad.
yung bagong libro ni ricky lee
world peace pa rin!
harajuku na parang diaper bag ang laki
super pilipinas na odm watch *alam ko luma na to. keber.
tiffany and co. na ring
book 7 ng harry potter
premium account sa multiply
yung buong 36 designs ng hello kitty toys sa happy meal ngaun
isang malaking orig na hello kitty na stuffed toy




yun na muna.




pero yung pinaka gusto ko sa lahat tlaga?




sulat. napakaraming sulat. sulat sa laht ng kaibigan ko. oo, ikaw na nagbabasa nito ngaun-- yung mga bagay na hindi mo sa akin nasabi kasi matagal tayung hindi nagkita at nagkatsismisan; yung mga bagay na gusto mong itanong sa kin pero hindi mo maitanong kasi nahihiya ka dahil feeling mo iba na yung konteksto ngaun; yung mga bagay na ikinagagalit mo sa kin dahil matagal akong nawala, nawawala, mawawala; o kahit ano lang basta may isinulat ka.




higit sa lahat, sana sulatan niya ako. siya na nagpramis sa aking ipagddrive ako papuntang sagada kapag me panahon na kming mas mahaba dahil masayang pumunta dun ng hindi nagmamadali dahil iniisip mo pa yung pasok mo pagkalunes; siyang nagbago ng mga pananaw ko sa mundo bago ako tumuntong ng 24; siya na hindi nanunuod ng indie films at ng mga pelikulang tagalog na balang araw eh gagawin ko; siya na nagpalungkot sa akin dahil posibleng hindi niya panuorin ang mga pelikulang gagawin ko sa nalalapit na panahon; siya na nangako na magdadaan sa cultural evolution para maintindihan at unawain ang larangan kong napili; siya na nagpaiyak sa kin ng maraming ulit dahil sa mga banat niya tuwing nagsusumbong ako sa mga umapi sa akin; siya na hindi ako pinapansin ngayon; siya na uuwi na sa kanyang pinanggalingan kung kaya nagsasanay ako kung paano bumalik din sa dati kong gawi...


eto yung address ko:
418 laurilla st pitogo makati city 1212




kahit yun lang. kahit wala na yung iba.

Speaking of Nordstrom...

Nagspam attack na naman kami nung mga kaberks. At naforward tong email na to. Share ko lang:

From: Gatpolintan, Alfie Cezar Labalan [mailto:AXBQ@ .com] Sent: Wednesday, August 26, 2009 9:03 AMTo: rona decolongon; ma-an de ocampo; Karen Raagas; Ernest JosephMiranda; Dennis JohnMontano; Emmelaine Ondillo; Joymee Ann Gascon; ManilynSarique; Leonor, April Yasmin Gagasa; EmmelaineOndillo; Aquino X.Gerry; Ken Nuguid; Malgapo, Stephanie Ortiz; Trina Reyes; Nicholas.Beltran; verde_pretty2@yahoo.com; Gonzalez, Auria Primaverde
Subject: The difference between ordinary and extraordinary

An Oregon schoolteacher went to Nordstrom's department store to buy a $1 booklet on how to tie scarves. A store employee told the teacher that, unfortunately, the store was sold out of the item. Four weeks later, the teacher checked her mail and, to her surprise, found two of the booklets, at no charge. That gesture made her a faithful Nordstrom customer, even though the store didn't have what she wanted the first time around.

But that's not the whole story. There is no Nordstrom department store in the teacher's hometown. She drives 160 miles round trip to shop at a store that took the time and effort to compensate her because they were out of a simple, inexpensive booklet.

Lesson: You might not always be able to give customers or co-workers exactly what they want. But the way you go above and beyond to make up of an oversight, mistake or product shortage can build a greater sense of loyalty and satisfaction than if you merely met the initial request.
What will customer or clients remember about you when you are not able to meet a request? The mere fact that you couldn't provide what they wanted? Or, the creative , service-minded way you responded to the situation and turned a negative into a positive?
Same thing with friends' request.


Of which I replied with:

Maganda to te.
Infairness, sabi ng tita ko, yung Nordstrom tlaga bongga sa customer service,
Like if you go there looking for a gulong, kahit wala silang tindang ganun talaga, hahanapan ka nila.
Kasi ung principle nila na, kaya ka pumunta sa kanila kasi may tiwala ka na matutulungan ka nila so di ka nila bibiguin.
Sana ang pag-ibig parang Nordstrom din. Na kapag nilapitan mo, hindi ka bibiguin maski wala syang inoofer na ganun.
Kaboom.
Wala ayun lang.
Nilalagnat ako.

Paalam President Cory...

Growing up, I only had two heroes in mind: Cory and Ninoy. I don't think i need to further elaborate. I just thought that they rocked this nation's history. And then eventually there was Kris, and then I rest my case.
I wanted to share this song for those who have not known this. It's one of my favorite Jose Mari Chan's songs, I'm a staunch believer that no one sings a love song as nostalgic as Joe Mari. And then I had the shock of my life when I found out that this was written by Ninoy to Cory. *cheesy*

I Have Fallen In Love
Music by Jose Mari Chan
Lyrics by Benigno Aquino Jr.

I have fallen in love
with the same woman three times;
In a day spanning 19 years
of tearful joys..and joyful tears.

I loved her first when she was young,
enchanting and vibrant, eternally new..
she was brilliant, fragrant,
and cool as the morning dew.

I fell in love with her the second time;
when first she bore her child and mine
always by my side, the source of my strength,
helping to turn the tide..

But there were candles to burn
the world was my concern;
while our home was her domain..
and the people were mine
while the children were hers to maintain;

So it was in those eighteen years and a day..
’till I was detained; forced in prison to stay.
Suddenly she’s our sole support;
source of comfort,
our wellspring of Hope..
on her shoulders felt the burden of Life..

I fell in love again,
with the same woman the third time.
Looming from the battle,
her courage will never fade
Amidst the hardships she has remained,
undaunted and unafraid..
she is calm and composed,
she is God’s lovely maid..
