Spy...oh my!

What the?! I just finished Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow! Is it just me or is the game too short...maybe I just played too much! Well, it sure was fun! Lifespan of the game... 4 nights! I am a splinter cell!

Time is not on my side...

Ever since I started playing Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, time it seems is never enough for it. I wanted to go on and on with it but time and concsiousness simply would not allow it. Hehehe! I've invested so much time already and enjoying every minute of it. This is my type of game, stealth... games like this are not really for everyone. It takes patience, discipline and strong will to prevent yourself from cursing too loud at 3 am in the morning. I guess I'm the only one qualified among my group of friends. Damn, I have to keep my spy stories to myself. Hehehe!

Thank God It's Friday

Ahh... friday at last. i have a feeling that this will not be an ordinary weekend, who am I kidding?! It won't be! tomorrow, we'll be going to my sister's graduation at the PICC. Hmm... how come they could spend their graduation there while WE, spent ours in the school auditorium?! Jologs! That's odd... Anyway, my sister's a cum laude! I'm sure my parents are very happy, and proud like I am. Sigh... I'll be waking up early tomorrow since the rites will start at 7 am! Gotta forget about work muna for tonight... waitamminit... I've been forgetting work for three weeks already! Waaaah!

PC vs. PS2

Ahh... I'm back! it's been four days since I last updated my blog. Been a little busy and out of town this weekend.
Anyhoo, I've been waiting for the release of Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow. I might be able to play it on the PC first. I prefer playing on my PS2, I never did feel like I'm playing whenever I'm in front of the PC, same with watching a movie there, there's something missing in the whole gaming/movie experience. Although it may be graphically superior, it has a lot of complications. Buy, install, setup, play. Compared to the PS2, buy, play, no issues! And games today require a lot from your machine... I always thought my PC was strong enough to handle most games, having a 2.1 Ghz processor, 128MB GeForce FX 5200 Video card. Until I installed Deus Ex: Invisible War, my god, the framerate was horrible! So I changed the setting of the game: shadows, textures, and all those other video settings... although it ran on a forgivable framerate, the graphics suffered a lot, it just made me feel frustrated. So after that incident, I swore never to buy another PC game... well, looks like I'll give this box another chance with Splinter Cell. Its July release for the PS2 is just too long for me. Hehehe!

One, Two, Punch!

Right now, I'm planning on enrolling for an Aikido class... probably next week, I'll start looking for a place to take em. Some people go to gyms, some to badminton sessions, some to billiard halls, me, I'll be punchin' and kickin' my way to fitness heaven! Yeah! Would've wanted to learn capoeira but I fear that my body isn't as flexible as it requires. Hope this isn't one of those plans that don't materialize. Hehehe! I have a lot of that, countless. They say that there is a moment in your life when it's divided into two, one before and one after... This may be one of those moments... hehehe!

Dreaming Aloud

On the 27th, my sister will be graduating from college. At last, every parent's dream for their children has finally come true for our dearest mom and dad. I know they're proud of us, and I can sense their excitement once again. My mom almost cried this morning when she told me we're all going on the 27th, all four of us. I can almost feel her heart bursting with pride and that sense of accomplishment. Too bad she wasn't here when I graduated, she was in Taiwan but didn't fail to congratulate me that day. It makes me wonder though if I can wait THAT long for my own children's graduations. Hahaha! That's thinking too far ahead for me. Oh well... dreams are free of charge.

Of Moose and Men

Well, came home from Makati. The Moose Crew (Joey, Rey, Jet, and me) had a little meeting on the project's development. Turns out we may have to change Mooz' appearance anyway. We were instructed in the beginning NOT to change the main character's design. We anticipated this predicament but who's complaining? Well... the client, I suppose. Hehehe! I'm kind of excited to give this character a makeover, finally, some control! Nyahaha! And the client is willing to buy some character designs we may have. And that could only mean more money! Yey! $__$
I missed my Guia today... sigh.


Today, I am all alone in this cold office. To my surprise, no one was here yet when I came in. Oh well, life goes on. I've always thought of myself as a loner. And yet, I am constantly with the company of my friends and loved ones. Not that I'm complaining. What I'm saying is, if I go out alone, I don't mind, I can manage. Before, I always tell myself, "You can never fully trust anybody but yourself." True. True. True.
Later this afternoon, I'll meet up with the David sisters, Jet and Joey. Yes, you heard it right, sisters... with names more masculine than mine (Jen). Hehehe! Hopefully, this Moose Gear project would progress as planned.

Saw Miriam Defensor Santiago's ad... mukha syang manok! Hehehe!

Can't Get a Shut-eye!

Obviously, I'm not busy. And since this is something new to me, guaranteed this will be updated daily... for a coupla weeks at least. Hehehe!
Angels and Demons is getting really interesting... after several chapters, a lot of Illuminati secrets have been revealed! And these aren't just products of the author's imagination... erm... well, technically, the whole book is. But they are actually based on facts! I looked it up on the net and was surprised to see actual documents! hmm... interesting.
Last night, I got home early. After eating, a few minutes on the phone, I suddenly found myself sleepy. Got to my room and gave in to my bed's invitation. I woke up with the smell of dog breath, our puppy, Dumpling, was feasting on my face. Of course, I had no choice but to get up, looked at the clock and was surprised to see how early it was, 1:30 am. What the?! But I felt full of energy and was not about to lose valuable time sleeping again. Turned on the tube and surfed for a good show... nada. Turned on the pc and surfed for a good site... the usual. Mail, Friendster, Groups. Shut down. 3:30 am... would have turned on my PS2 but I just didn't feel like playing 007. Back to the tube, alas! Maximum Exposure! Something to entertain myself, they featured The World's Most Dumbest Guys. Haha! I finally went back to sleep again, last time I checked, it was 4:30, gawd, I have to wake up for work... this is becoming routine for me.

A Selfcentric Bastard...

Surely, I had fastfood for lunch... Japanese fastfood. The mixed veggies smelled kinda funky though. And for dessert, a box of heavenly Cadbury Mochacino! YUM! Discovered this last week and I can't seem to stop munching on these buggers!
I always thought things like these... these blogs were for selfcentric bastards. I mean, why would you think anyone will be interested in reading about you or what you're doing?! Well, its good to have a medium for your thoughts sometimes. I'm a selfcentric bastard.

Fastfood Craving

Off to lunch I go. Lately, I've been eating a lot. Good or bad? I dunno, as long as my budget permits. Hehehe! I miss the taste of fastfood though.

On Religion

Been reading Dan Brown's "Angels and Demons" since Monday. It's an interesting book since it tries to unify the ideas of Science and Religion. And whenever religion is in question, count me in! Don't get me wrong, i believe in God, but the Church... it's a different story. I hate secrets. I was never a book reader since it just makes me sleepy... and sometimes, you just think sleeping is just a waste of your precious time. Hehehe! Of course, many would contest. To each his own like I always say.
Looking forward to seeing Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ.
