Unfair nga naman

Teka lang! Bago mo ko awayin sa comments section, gusto kong sabihin sa’yo na babae din ako at ang blog na ito ay hango lamang sa sa isang taong nakapanayam ko sa isang makabuluhan at madugong talakayan matapos ang pang-apat na bote.

vi-sao-chong-khong-muon-ve-nha2

Heart broken ang siya at naisipang gawin kaming toilet matapos silang maghiwalay ng kanyang sintang-mahal. Sinalo namin ang sama ng loob niya buong gabi. Alam naman niyang kasalanan niya at siya rin daw ang unang umamin sa girlfriend niya na mayroon siyang iba dahil nakasanayan na niyang magsabi ng totoo.

Halos lahat ng lalakeng kaibigan namin nung oras na iyon ay nagsabing isa siyang magiting na boyfriend dahil malakas ang loob niya na aminin yon. Samantalang lahat naman ng kababaihan (kasama ako) ay nag-suggest na bakit hindi pa siya magbigti sa ilalim ng katabi naming puno ng mangga? Na-triggered ang mga lola nyo. Bakit daw may mga lalaking naghahanap parin ng iba kahit may girlfriend na. At dito na, mga kaibigan, naging makabuluhan ang diskusyunan. Ipinaliwanag na ni heart-broken-man na itatago natin sa tawag na “kuya sawi” kung bakit siya naghanap ng iba:

Sa anim na taon ng pagiging magkaibigan namin ni Kuya Sawi, nakita ko kung gaano niya kamahal ang girlfriend nyang tatawagin nating “Ate Bato” dahil matapos mo mabasa ang paliwanag niya, baka maisip mong kulang pa yang katawagang iyan para sa kanya. “Unfair” yan ang naging ugat nga kanyag paliwanag.

“Ang unfair lang kasi bago kami nagsimula sa relationship na’to, nangako kami sa isa’t-sa na gagawin ang lahat para mapasaya ang bawat isa.” – Naging mabuti siyang boyfriend ngunit si Ate Bato walang ginawa kundi magpa-cute upang mapalampas ni Kuya Sawi ang pagiging parasyte ni Ate Bato. Lugi nga naman.

“Noong sinabi niyang tigilan ko ang lahat ng luho ko; Paninigarilyo, Dota, monthly beer session with friends, gala, at pagbili ng mga kailangan ko online, ginawa ko. Pero noong pinangako niya na mageexcercise siya para masuot yung binili kong dress para sa kanya tatlong taon na pero wala parin.” – Di madaling bitawan ang mga bagay na nagtatanggal ng stress mo. Sana nga naman hindi nalang ipinangakong magpapa-payat diba?

“Marami siyang gusto sa buhay ngunit nagrereklamo siya pag nahihirapan siyang abutin yon.” – Naiintindihan ko ang isang ito. Usong-uso kasi ngayon sa mga nagtatrabaho ang magreklamo sa Facebook tungkol sa hirap ng trabaho. Pero pag wala namang trabaho, nagrereklamo parin dahil walang pang gastos at di makahanap ng kumpanyang mapagta-trabahuan.

popular-girl-002-256

“Kapag gusto niyang makibag-break sakin, nagsosorry ako at pilit na inaayos ang lahat. Pero pag ako na ang napupuno at minsan hindi sinasadyang nababanggit na ayoko na, mabilis niyang ina-accept na maghiwalay na kami.” – Ang galing galing nating mga girls diba? Alam kasi natin na masasaktan siya pag sumang-ayon tayo kagad kasi akala natin nanakot siya. Di natin alam na lalo lang natin dinadagdagan ang sakit sa puso niya. Bakit di natin subukas mag-sorry din?

I hate to admit pero may point si Kuya Sawi. Pero mali yung ginawa niya na humanap ng iba dahil kung pagod na siya, sana tinapos nalang muna niya yung current relationship niya kaysa pagsabayin and dalawang babae. Ngunit kung iisipn, a promise is not meant to be broken. Dahil unfair nga naman.

7 hiring interview habits that will set the interviewer off

maxresdefault

How’s your job hunting? Did you passed the test and got the job? How’s the first impression of the interviewer to you? For me there’s nothing regretting in job hunting than the opportunity of getting the job but failed because the interviewer doesn’t like me.

It’s not only the resume that does everything when applying for a job. Compared to a personal interview, the resume is just a tissue paper you will be using to wipe-off your tears when you fail. In a personal interview, the interviewer gets to see if you can prove your resume is 100% legit and we’re not fooling around. The interviewer gets the chance to measure your personality and knowledge, and find whether you fit the job or worthy to sing the Call me maybe song.

I’m not gonna tell you how to impress your interviewer but I can at least make you avoid the 7 things that sets the hiring interviewer off:

hqdefault

1. Dead Air – Dead Air or Long Pause in most call center offices particularly in calls is not a good sign because it can make the customer think that you’re actually don’t know what you’re saying, plus it makes the call time very long. If you applied for a call center job, a dead air in the interview is not a pretty good start. Like on calls, you’re already wasting the interviewer’s time, thus failing the interview.

2. Tapping – tapping is habit that disrupts focus and is super annoying. Doing this in an interview wherein the interviewer is analyzing your behavior could cost your application to a failure.

423ad9b030770dd57d35497d3549ae3e

3. Slouching – slouching or drooping while sitting gives the impression that you’re not even interested to get the job. The lazy posture can set-off the interviewer and if you still get passed to that, slouching releases the boredom feeling not just to yourself but also to the people around you in the workplace.

4. Phones – Like tapping, a phone ring or even swiping the screen is a guaranteed next level of pissing off your interviewer. This happens not just in hiring interviews but also in casual conversations. Showing that a nonsense social media status is more important than getting a job is a great disrespect to the interviewer and to the whole process.

aa_xamd_ep_01_1261e83e-mkv_snapshot_15-01_2012-08-24_10-44-23

5. Arrogance – If you let your arrogance control over your humbleness, it will be all for nothing. Overly confidence and arrogance on the way you speak or actions, can set off the interviewer. Yes, you may have just what it takes to pass everything but you speak as if you will be hired to be the boss, then I suggest you stop right there and forget about applying for a job since that’s what the offended interviewer will say to you anyway.

6. Faking the Resume – Basically lying. Of course it can set anyone off not just the interviewer when you fake something in your resume. It’s embarrassing and shameful to continue an interview trying to convince the interviewer with the lie you just put in your resume. It’s like telling on your resume that your hobby is travelling the world and answering that you haven’t tried going out of the country even once.

1s

7. Seduction – If all else fails, show the bra. Believe it or not, seduction is a common strategy used not just by women but also men, to get hired. Aside with threatening the interviewer, girls (if the interviewer is male) will softly seduce the interviewer by showing some of her body parts to the extent that the interviewer will get more if she gets hired. While on male applicants (if the interviewer is a girl, an older woman, or a gay), he would unbutton his shirt to the extend of God knows what they will be doing next.

I hope the next time you’re applying for a job, you left all of these seven in your house. Because you’ll never know, if you get the chance to meet me as your interviewer, I might hire you right away.

What Makes Wonder Woman Different from All Other DC Movies

 

Have you watched Wonder Woman? If you’re still thinking that Wonder Woman is just another sexy female super hero, then I’d say you haven’t. Like her Eye make-up that never seem to get wiped off, there are many other aspects that made the movie Wonder Woman different from other DC Movies.

80eaae8842395b24c0d54b2b6df3ef454c8ddc01_hq

Here’s what you can expect. Wonder Woman is still, and the most wondrous female crime-fighting hero in DC universe. Diana’s an amazon, born in an island of women. She’s trained to be genius in combat. Her golden whip can stretch and immobilize her enemies. And she fights alongside Batman and the others in Justice League.

 

And here’s you probably didn’t know. Watch out because these will spoil your excitement to watch the movie. She’s a demi-human, a child of god and a human which grants her the ability of inhuman speed,  jump on great heights, and super strength that is not alien in nature like Superman. In the movie, Diana is a princess loved by her mother so much that she’s not even allowed to wield a sword; On the contrary, she’s a living weapon destined to defeat Ares, god of war(or wisdom). Though a half-god, she can still be killed with a bullet which explains why she deflects it with her arm guards.

Wonder-Woman-Movie-Pictures.jpg

Starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince – Gal Gadot proved her worth as the story’s main star. Her face is just right, she’s gorgeous, innocent, fierce, and funny, perfect in every occasion. Even behind the scenes (which you could check on youtube), you can see how her game-face change instantly when needed. And check out her eye-liner throughout the movie, it’s a must buy.

The movie is humorous – Think about the other DC movies before Wonder Woman. It’s usually dark, dramatic, and full of suspense. But in Wonder Woman, the watchers are transported to a different world. The scenes and lines are witty and Diana’s ignorance to the real world made it even funnier. And top of that, she was partnered to a ‘Chris’

Chris-Pine-on-SNL-Saturday-Night-Live

Chris Pine as Steve Trevor – Yup, we all know that there’s something about Chris(s) that makes all the girls watching superhero movies drool. Steve’s role is vital both in the story and to its viewers. It isn’t enough that only boys enjoys as Diana fights the Nazi army with her bare skin. The girls should see something pleasing too, perhaps a six pack of abs to balance it? If you will watch the movie, Chris Pine will be happy to show you more than that.

Women  can hide swords – Diana taught us under the sleeves are unthinkable tricks, and under the dress are unimaginable blades–swords in particular. Suddenly, women learned that swords go unconventionally perfect behind their backs and it goes smoothly even with a backless gown. Thank you Diana, girls can now attend the ball and slay their partners when caught red-handed dancing with another woman.

Super friends – Not really “super” though. Before Diana joined Justice League, she fought the war with just normal. Steve introduced Diana to his friends, an American native, an Irish Sniper, and an Arab conman. Together, they led the attack that forced the German army to retreat. Yes, she didn’t work alone. Finally,
Justice-League-2017-Poster-Gal-Gadot-as-Wonder-Woman-justice-league-movie-40312576-2764-4096

No Cliff-hanger – Wonder Woman ended just right; giving its viewers the idea that there will be no sequel to the movie than Justice League. Unlike Superman Vs. Batman with a cliff-hanger scene of the dead Clark Kent leaving a clue that he’s going back to life. Will he be showing in Justice League? I don’t know, but he should be. We all know that DC has this thing of suddenly putting a character into the movie without telling the public like what Wonder Woman did.

 

The movie is so good that I can’t just give away any detailed spoiler. I suggest, you watch it on big screen so you would not miss any action Princess Diana prepared for you. And like how Wonder Woman ended without any cliff-hanger, I’ll stop right here.

 

#Adulting in my opinion

#adulting

More and more people are getting a hard time understanding and completing things that they should’ve learned on their earlier years. What were they doing when they were kids? Staying up late thinking how to defeat the Boss on a video game? (If you’re smiling right now, I’m probably right).

Or maybe I am lucky because I grew up in a generation where household activities and paying bills are commonly taught to students. I remember my elementary days where we learned how to sew on the first semester and learned electronics on the next. And every year, we plant vegetables and breed livestock.

I was just so surprised to see that in other country, people on my age knows how to drive a car but can’t sew a button. Worst, can’t even boil an egg. Surprised? You’ll be surprised if I tell you the next batch of Filipino kids are on their way to that situation too.

Because as I grow older, I’m beginning to notice that some teens of this generation are more aware than politics than their basic needs. Most of them even engage to more complex social dramas like relationship and barkada fights. I’m pretty sure, they know how to handle a computer very well but a little knowledge to home economics.

There are many aspects: Could be parents, status, education, and even technology can be the reason for a person with the slightest of idea how to cook rice. Internet could also be another reason (see: https://magingalagadngsining.wordpress.com/2017/03/15/is-the-social-media-keeping-people-to-stay-lazy/ ).

In my opinion, I cant believe that adulthood is something people is currently worrying about. I see dozens of posts about #adulting everyday in my newsfeed and what they are worrying about makes me ask myself: how come they tweet something about North Korea yesterday and don’t know how toilet bowls work today? For me, it doesn’t make sense.

Maybe the education system is failing. Maybe they skipped class because they thought adulthood stuff is something that doesn’t need to take seriously. Maybe they’re relying to “life-hacks” too much because they thought it made things easier. Whatever the maybe(s), I’m still thankful that I belong in a generation where adulthood is a skill necessity that need to be learned.

Moving-on: The hard way

Like any other type of doing it, there are two types of moving-on. And of course, when you ask your friend, your parents, or the vast library of opinions in the internet, they will always give you the most easiest and sympathetic solution to move-on. But what if they don’t simply work and you just gotta have to brush these feelings off right now? Then there’s the hard way. It’s like when a machine clanks: the “hit-it-with-a-wrench” easy fix.

tumblr_mrcj4nmqtG1ql8fh8o9_500.gif

I’m not recommending this type of solution because it resembles the persuasive and convincing quote “To motivate people, you need to destroy them.” of firms since salary, apparently, is not enough to drive their employee’s productivity these days. In addition, if you have a weak heart, I suggest you go back in browsing the internet for more pleasant way. But then again, where’s the courage of moving-on when you’re still believing in fairy tales, right?

So, here it goes: The steps of moving-on: THE HARD WAY VERSION (This is your final warning. This blog is not for faint of heart).

0

To move-on, you would have to retrace your steps of your relationship starting from the day you met him/her up to the day the both of you exchanged goodbyes. unlike the mild way of slowly forgetting him/her and replacing the bad memories. In this way, you will exhaust yourself by reminiscing the past and a bit of tears to burst out your feelings. You would also need a camera.

First, go to the place where you first met him/her. Remember everything that happened on that particular spot. It could bring you tears but facing the reality and getting through it will make you stronger. Take a picture of that spot on your perspective and burn the memory to your mind until you feel tired and not getting affected anymore.

Then go to the place where you guys often hangout. Again, take a picture of that place from your perspective. If it’s a diner, order the same meal. If it’s a play park, play a game. If it’s a theater, go watch a movie (but don’t take pictures inside or you’ll get caught). Burn the memory into your head. Cry if you have to. Until you get tired.

Go to the place where you guys spent the happiest moment. It’s different from the place where you guys hangout. But if you think it’s the same place, then disregard this one. This particular place, like the last place you will need to visit, can either make you feel extremely angry or sad. Imagine: This is the place where you and him/her spent the loudest laughs, the memory of the warmest hug, and exchanged the tenderest kiss. And if you’re a girl and he gave you a ring for a gift, I bet this is that place. Don’t forget to take a picture.

giphy.gif

Lastly, the place where the two of you part ways. This is the place where the skies fall down to earth. Where your world crumbles down to your feet. The dreams you thought were real was shattered to pieces. Since you’re the one moving-on, he/she is probably the one who asked for this relationship to stop. This is where you first and should be the last place where you will cry. If he gave you something that he doesn’t want back, bring them with you. Take a picture and look at the photos one-by-one for the last time. and delete them all. As for the items, if you think you have no use for them, you can trash or burn them. Go to a public comfort room, find a sink and shout as loud as you can underwater. It will make you fell better.

When you’re done, think about this: I am very fortunate to experience this moment as early as now. This is a lesson for me and now I’m free, I will enjoy my days as single and let tomorrow guide me to the deserving one.

Good luck 🙂

Bakit Hindi Ka Dapat Magpaligaw

7955709662_fc3ab54108_b

Masyadong marami pero sasabihin ko na yung pinaka dahilan kung bakit hindi pwede: Kasi ang panliligaw ay maihahalintulad sa pamimilit.

Hindi ako bitter pero baka hindi ka na rin magpaligaw pagkatapos kong ipaliwanag sayo.

Ang panliligaw marahil ang pinaka-unang hakbang upang magsimula ang isang matibay na pagsasama. Kung dito pa lang sa parteng ito ay magkakamali ka na, siguradong malaki ang magiging epekto nito sa pagsasama niyong dalawa.

Ganito ang istilo ng mga kalalakihan sa panahon ngayon:

1. Pag-Obserba
Kikilalanin ka niya. Marahil bilang isang kaibigan o pag-silip sa Facebook mo. Maari rin sa pagtatanong sa mga tao sa paligid mo. Sa pagkakataong ito ay oobserbahan niya ang iyong kaugalian, estado, kultura, minsan relihiyon, pisikal na pangangatawan, at ang iyong ideal partner. Pag pasado ka, susunod na ang pag-bago niya sa sarili.

2. Pagbago sa sarili
Pipilitan niyang i-adjust ang sarili upang mapansin at magustuhan mo siya. Siya ang magiging ideal guy mo at tiyak na magugustuhan mo siya. At kung sakali namang hindi niya magawa yung ibang mahirap na aspeto (gaya ng pangangatawan), bibigyan ka niya ng ideya na magpapabago sa kagustuhan mo. Halimbawa “Pangit din pag may abs kasi chick magnet. E pag medyo mataba, masarap yakapin.”

3. Panliligaw
Ito ang step kung saan ipapakita niya sa’yo na may interes siya sayo at gusto niyang maging parte ka ng buhay niya. At dahil siya na nga ang ideal guy mo, papayag ka magpaligaw. At sa loob ng maikling panahon na pagpapakilala niya sayo bilang taong pinapangarap mo, ay mahuhulog ka sa kanya.

Wala namang problema doon kung mapapanatili niya ang sarili niya bilang taong hindi totoong siya hanggang sa pag-tanda niyo. Paglumabas ang tunay niyang kulay matapos ang ilang buwan o taon, may pagkakataong ka pa upang ayusin ang lahat. Yoon nga lang, maraming mga araw na ang nasayang. Nakapanghihinayang kung sa loob ng maikling panahon na kasama mo ang maling tao, ay siya namang nagpakita sayo yung totoong taong para sayo. Masasabi kong swerte ka pa. Isipin mo ngayon kung inilabas niya ang tunay niyang pagkatao after ng kasal niyo. Mas malaking problema, diba?

Ganito na lang. Trust your instincts. Sa iyong imahinasyon, gumawa ka ng ideal guy mo. Itsura, estado, ugali, at lahat ng aspetong masasabi mong mapapa-ibig kang talaga. Ang mundo ay may Pitong bilyong tao na may 1:1 ratio, imposibleng hindi mo mahanap ang ideal guy mo. At kung hindi mo siya makita, marahil hindi pa ito ang tamang oras para makilala mo ang taong magpapatibok ng puso mo.

Kung nahanap mo naman na si Mr.Right, ipagtapat mo sa kanya ang tunay mong nararamdaman at wag mo siyang pakawalan. Ingatan mo siya at huwag mong sasaktan. Tandaan mo na kung mutual ang feelings niyo, madali kayong magkakasundo at magkakaunawaan. Ano man ang gawin niyo ay matatanggap ng isa’t-isa.

Hindi niya kailangang manligaw dahil nagpapa-impress lang naman siya sa’yo. Hindi niya pinapakita ang totoong pagkatao niya, bagkos, ipinapakita niya ang taong gusto mong makita sa kanya. Nararapat lamang na magustuhan mo siya sa totoong pagkatao niya at hindi sa pagpapanggap niya.

“before I lose it and bite down”

 

cronus.jpg

Have you ever seen a very sexy person (man or woman) that’s so sexy, you just wanna bite ’em down? I mean, literally?

This could be the creepiest story I can share to you. Until now, I don’t know if it’s a good thing but I happen to talk to a stranger who think he has a mental disorder of Cannibalism some time last year. If you think about it, it’s kinda creepy yet interesting so I want to share it with you. I suddenly remember this guy when I was checking my Facebook and saw these photos of sexy girls posing for a magazine. So I quickly checked my sound recordings file on my phone to see if my record of his story is still there. I’m surprised that the file is still there and renamed it ‘Before I lose it and bite down’.

I started recording a bit late but it’s okay since the first part of our conversation is just introductions with common topics.

*recording starts*
him: -before I lose it and bite down…
me: I’m sorry. You were once what again?
him: currently hungry.
me: no. I mean your situation.
him: ah! The cannibalism you mean? I think it started few years ago. You know when you suddenly feel hungry while looking at people. Mine is when I look at some photos of sexy and attractive girls like Ellen Adarna. She’s sexy, right? She’s like….every man’s dream. But as I stare longer, my stomach begins to feel empty like it’s pressing down deeper and I become really hungry. I never felt so hungry like that. It doesn’t happen to me when I look at the photos of my crush or other sexy girls before. But now whenever I see sexy photos of thick thighs drenched in heat, and white cleavage trapped in a fit shirt, I’m beginning to feel very hungry. TBH (to be honest) it scares me, especially when I begin to tell myself “I wonder what it taste like if I bite down on them.” At first I thought I was just hungry, until it happened frequently whenever I see girls like them. I imagine swallowing the bitten part without chewing down and hitting my tummy inside. Oh~ It must’ve feel satisfyingly good.

I suddenly felt the urge to pick up my phone on the table and run away as fast as I can. Then he starts talking again.

him: I know you’re already scared. I can see the hair in your arms raising. *grin* But this sickness is somehow selective. I only feel like it when I look at beautiful girls with fair white skin, showy cleavage of a kind-of-big chest in a tight shirt, and smooth legs.

As if he described what I look like on that day. It feels weird and unsafe near him. I don’t know what to say so I just looked at him.

I know I might get jailed for this but somehow, I feel like I can trust you. Besides, in the end of the day, this is just another story and I’m sure this is the last time we will see each other. Telling this to a girl who’s actually a potential meal for cravings like mine and getting off unharmed is a good sign that I didn’t lose it and didn’t bite down. I’m hungry but you’re still okay. You should…

*recording stops*

For the record, that’s the creepiest 1 minute and 46 seconds of my life. I approached him and made him really hungry. It must’ve been a great stomachache for him enduring the urge to bite. To fill the missing part, he just told me I might felt emotionally attacked after hearing what he said but I will soon forget this in time which is what happened. In fact, I already forgot about it as soon as I board the bus. Remembering he thanked me for staying even though I’m obviously scared makes me smile and feel brave.
