certified jologs

our system in the office is currently having problems which was caused by the recent earthquake in taiwan and it's running extremely slow. fortunately, there's this e-mail with lots of tests that was spreading around the office. the tagalog quiz was something i was able to encounter before so i must say i did pretty well and so with the acronym test but the one i found as the most challenging of them all is the jologs test...geez, my weird memory which for some reasons mostly remembers showbiz trivias was once again tested. on occassions that office system ran slow, i was in deep thought....and i'm shamelessly proud to have answered (without any help from any of my officemates, believe me they don't even know the answers) the following jologs questions:

a) theme song ni richard gomez & sharon cuneta
b) host na puppet sa batibot na laging may dala-dalang mike
c) children show ni subas herrero
d) nostra damus ng asia
e) hinulaan ng sagot sa letter d na mamamatay sa sarili nyang show
f) kumanta ng just a smile away for close-up commercial (clue from me:i know you guys are thinkin' of gino padilla pero nde yun. closer you and i kasi ang kinanta ni gino)
g) role na ginampanan ni sharon cuneta sa isang massacre film
h) pangalan ng character ni aurora sevilla sa aguila
i) noontime show ng channel 7 nung matapos ang lunch date
j) commercial model ng asahi electricfan
k) show ni german moreno tuwing umaga
l) anchor ng tv patrol in-charge for showbiz news
m) show ni tito sotto, helen gamboa, chuckie dreyfus & isabel granada
n) show ni oskee salazar sa channel 13
o) segment sa batibot na mga daliri ang bida

those are just some tough questions that i was able to answer...hmmm, do you know the answers? you can try, i'll let you know if you got 'em correctly.

new year's resolutions

a) SAVE - i have been saving since i started working but not for myself, i've been keeping portion of my salaries, bonuses, 13th month pays & loans to support education of my siblings and daily needs of our family. this year, i'm adding myself to the beneficiaries. this nearing 30s thingy keeps poppin' into my consciousness. i know that success should not be measured by wealth alone and so is fulfillment and satisfaction but then again i don't wanna wake up one day being empty-handed and be in a situation when i couldn't anymore give.i plan on getting a savings plan where i can put some money and enjoy the benefits later, i'll be exploring some pre-need financial plans and review what suits me well.

b)GO BACK TO ARTS-i've thrown all my art materials when i could no longer find time to paint. few days before 2007, i was able to use some of my VLs (vacation leave) and reconnected myself to arts.i modestly started combining colors again with oil pastel..i intend to do this more often and maybe buy more art materials so i could go back to painting again.

for this year, it looks like i have selfish resolutions. . . it's about time.
