LOL. man i waited for like, an hour for *someone* to go online. I didn't get to read your message, imp. If I did I would have added you because I was hankering to talk to someone. instead, i went on a drunken rampage in the forums...
Ohai, haven't been here for quite some versions time. :3
About that drunken rampage, I don't complain, and I doubt anyone will. We loved it! Reminded us of the time when ippy always showed up shitfaced on the forums :3 (not that you were as drunk but your spelling skills was about as good as his )
i admire you for planning that out, MD. just grabbing your bags and going to manila, job hunt... @_@
i mean, you didn't even send emails and wait for an interview just to hit 2 birds with one trip, maybe?
uhm, well, i did have a couple of final interviews with the respective employers (arabian). but even if i didn't, id still take those kind of job hunting trips. i always believe that going to such extent will considerably increase my chances of getting a job abroad.
actually, after that interview, i came across another agency who were looking for system and network administrator. so i submitted a set of all my credentials. the next day, they texted me to come back on the 31st for a final interview with the employer. im not sure if ill be taking this one. my pocket is all empty now until next pay day

among call-center peeps based in MANILA. we don't have that kind of luxury here in the provinces, save cebu.
oh, i almost forgot, there's an agency based in cebu that hires call center agents for singapore. you might wanna take a look at it bb, if you're considering other options.
ha! i mean,,, sorry queen. Being robbed is a really bad thing.
But it's a common occurrence in Manila. Not only do you get robbed, in trains you get groped and breathed on. >.< And shoved for an hour until you finally get on the train.
That's why I hate the MRT. And Manila, in general If my friends and alma mater weren't there, I'd never think of visiting it.
Bohol is a nice provincial but tourist place, Queen. Do try the famous Danao Adventure Park Plunge. It's a free-fall off a cliff and you swing. I haven't tried it but I'd really really love to
I'm just chilling here in the mountains, drinking while driving because nobody else is on the road and if I get off track I just bump into harmless pineapples. Pine trees, on the other hand, do quite a lot of damage to a vehicle.
Heh, I actually had both of those happen to me. I got my butt groped on the same day, but a later train ride. A swift elbow and a glare stopped it surprisingly quickly. -_-"
My friend was like, "dude- you have massive balls. When it happens to me I'm too shy to say anything." :/
Basically, I've had an old Iphone 3g for the last 2 or so years, and I didn't mean to take it with me because I didn't want it to get stolen, but- long story short- I ended up with it here. I couldn't use it but it was handy for music/wifi/picture taking.
My friend has an Ipad and doesn't see much harm in whipping it out on the train and Jeepneys, but I always kept my phone in my pocket with my hand over it and never took it out, because I didn't feel safe.
Anyway, the other day we were boarding the MRT, and so I was targeted by about 3 or 4 guys. 3 of them came up behind me and shoved me into my friend so my arms were pinned while one snatched my phone from my pocket. He was pretty skilled- he managed to grab it in a second and unplug the headphones at the same time.
Still, I felt it, and immediately screamed "SOMEONE STOLE MY PHONE" and turned around but they were gone. :/
I told the guard who was behind me on the train but he pretty much just stared at me blankly. I didn't bother to file a police report or anything.
I was upset, of course, but I've figured 'C'est la vie.' Moping about it won't get it back so might as well look on the bright side. At least I have my health/passport. ^_^
I'm not sure what we're doing in Cebu- we're staying at my friend's roomates house, but if possible I wanna do the cliff fall!
