lawyers can also laugh!
my grandfather wrote or adopted this book which he called "lawyers can also laugh!"
Monday, June 05, 2006
y choose a working student?
when i entered law school, it was tough. lawyers would yell at you, intimidate you, shout and disappoint you.. as one of my professors said, "your dream of becoming a lawyer may become your nightmare!" but despite of it all, lawyers considering how they talk and their personality, they really laugh a lot and joke a lot (khit minsan, d cla tumatawa sa joke nila. heheh!)
but the realization that lawyers are people who are full of kalokohan and stuff, i was able to digest the idea only when i started working. why? because i had to deal with lawyers who were affiliates and partners at work.
earlier today, i had a meeting with a group of 5 and 2 of them were lawyers. how funny that the one i usually see and talk ay professor pala sa BEDA! remember that i came from BEDA? and now ko lang nalaman na he's teaching there apart from the other schools pa. small world! and the 2 of them were joking a lot and so fun. he was even telling me how he hates students who comes to class unprepared and ofcourse, i smiled... ciempre, i'm one of those kse i have very less time bec of work, heheh! justified. tapos he was telling me na pag may 3 dw na sunod2 na hindi nakasagot, ay pinapaalis niya sa class! terror cia in short from my assessment sa kwento niya. heheh!
pero how fun db? i've been working with him and sa totoo lang, magaan siya katrabaho. ok siya, he's so kind and nice and very approachable. now who would imagine na iba siya sa loob ng classroom db? heheh! buti nalang, di ko siya naging prof. heheh! joke lang. pero wla lang, naisip ko lang talaga na lawyers are really versatile people. they can be anybody! but definitely, they KNOW HOW TO LAUGH!
they say that law students are so busy that they don't have time for love... but how much more when a law student is at the same time, working? a work that's so time demanding and constantly developing...

from a heated discussion a day ago with a friend bout whether or not working students still have time for love, i came to think of writing this one. i bet to disagree to those who says that working students is NOT a good choice for a partner or a lover! in fact, THEY ARE THE BEST CHOICE! you know why? because...
1. they don't have time for petty fights. Unlike the usual working or student, they don't nag you or argue without reasons bec. they're too tired for such "walang kwentang away" ( admit it? girls love starting fights even if they don't have any reason to do so! heheh)
2. they're exposure to both worlds (school and work) makes them more sensitive to their partners needs. it's because they deal with different people everyday and they learn from them and thier mistakes that they don't want to make the same mistakes to their mates.
3. Each minute spent with their partner is always quality time. They always feel so busy and they always feel so guilty of not having enough time with their partner even if they do. and it frightens them that their other half would start to complain about time that's why they spent time wisely and spent it the best way possible when with their gf/bf.
4. They shower the other party with sooo much affection as their form of self gratification. These people are so busy that seldom, they forget about theirselves. in this way, they feed their needs by giving time to their partners and by giving them all the love in the world... doing so makes them happy and satisfied already!
5. they are overly stressed, they'll be begging for relief. heheh! i guess this is self explanatory. and hey, don't get me wrong! it's been said that a strong relationship needs fire! heheh!
so... to sum it all up, working students got all what is needed for a good relationship... but i've noticed, isn't the last one more in favor of the male species? heheh!
well, quite a few agreed with me... and hey! dont get me wrong... THIS IS NOT AN ADVERTISEMENT!!! it was never intended for that purpose and it never will be. besyds, i don't need an AD after all! heheh! lol.
so? its been a while since i last updated this blog... well, what's new? with me?

what a dream!
NOTHING. just had to do a lot of things, been really busy with work and scholl and my social life... heheh! that couldn't be absent, ryt?
ok, a really good friend left and will be staying for good in davao where she's transferring law school in said place... i feel so sad when i heard of the news because first, it was REALLY UNEXPECTED. i was surprised! she was my closest girl friend in law school bec. of the many from beda, only three of us were left together and stayed in baste. unfortunately, the other one found new friends already and its so sad though we still find time to talk and go out once in a while, iba p rin tlga pag kau2 ang mgkakasama db? tpos all of sudden, the one left with me has to transfer to another school that's far from here!!! grbe tlga! and worse, our other friend who was suppose to go back from a break from law school decided not to go back because his dad opposes. sigh... =(
i feel so left alone.. im sorry to say this specially sa mga friends kong iba kse though i have them, iba pa rin tlga yung kme... i don't know, but that's the reality. lately, i've been busy with a new friend that's so much like me in many ways, mahilig uminom, manlait, mang-asar at tamad mag-aral! heheh! im glad to have her around but still i know she has friends also like the once i had. i'm sure, i still haven't totally lost the other left but then it's just not the same. i know he's still there if i need him or otherwise but then, things are different. ewan ko ba! i just feel like i miss the GOOD OLD TIMES... tama nga, 'nothing is constant in this world, except CHANGE'... but rest assured, i'll stay the same despite everything and i am confident that they know that i'm just here in case they need me.
well, let's move to another story coz i'm feeling sad na... last sat nyt was kinda a good night for me... why? because along the bar hopping scenes i had, i croos roads with 2 old friends. while in greenbelt, i saw a classmate from my econ days... and we had a brief chat, would remember that the last time i saw her was last year, mga part of 1st sem when we had a reunion... mga more than 6 months ago and then when i went to malate, i just though of txting drake and hola! he was there! we had a really good talk with updates from our other friends.... he was my officemate way back in PS and last time i saw him was october last year... now i realize that its good to be reunited with old friends once in a while... hai...
with that, i just wish that the friends i'm missing, whom im saddened with their leaving, will be reunited once more some time in the near future....
i woke up monday morning feeling bad and troubled because of the dream i had encountered! a dream that was really unusual... a dream that placed a big question mark on me for the rest of the said day...

so here it goes... i was with my late father, we kept on running and running because 2-3 persons, who is believed to be the devil's advocates, were running after us! fortunately, we reached the elevator which served as our escape going to the real world from the uderworld. By the way, the underworld in my dream looks like an abandoned building under construction, wherein all the walls were either unfinished and chipped or covered with dirty clothes and there were trails of fire over the walls... basta, something like that!
when the elevator opened, we were inside a mall... my dad and i were holding hands, trying to save all the people we see. in short, savior kme ng tao from evil. After doing our job, we looked so relax walking going out of said mall to go home. near the exit, i realized that someone was going to our direction and saw that the same was the one who was running after us. My dad hurriedly pulled me going the different direction to run again and i saw that the people inside the stalls ay hindi na gumagalaw.. parang frozen pero hindi. tapos naabutan daw kme nung humahabol then upon touching our neck, ng-freeze na dn dw kme tpos nagising na ako! wAAAH! db? hndi man lang kme nbigyan ng chance na gumanti or what... ang kainis pa, hindi o alam what happened to us.. kung forever na kme ganon or if na save pa kme! hai!
moreso, finals ko nung day na yun and nag-aayos ako ng audit sa work... sino ba nman gaganahan db? hai!!! ano kya meaning nun?
since friday of last week, txt messages were coming endlessly regarding news of SURIGAO being into some kind of disaster or so...
Tuesday, February 14, 2006
happy hearts day!
different versions came... they said na in a municipality of Surigao del Norte -Placer, umurong daw ang dagat ng 7 km! and this was a sign dw of an upcoming tsunami. another story was that a lady in white (supposedly "Mother Mary") appeared in a public school in Surigao City and cried in blood stating that a calamity is about to come so we have to pray. and they mentioned that only the children saw her and that the lady is believed to be the same that appeared in Leyte before the landslide. Tapos meron pa na may tidal wave daw na darating.
all these and more...
calls overseas came coming in and people were frightened and many panicked. Being a local of the place, i've been monitoring whats going on through my mom and other friends.. locals dw were evacuating already to uplands and many were sleeping on their vehicles on the road para daw pag may nangyari, madaling makatakbo. also, because of the unending txt messages, the fishermen hid in their homes and as a result, walang fish sa market na mabibili!
DAMN with all the bad news or better yet, HELL with the WRONG INFO! zamboanga now is providing fish in the market and people are still very afraid even if PAG-ASA already confirmed that the news is FALSE.
i wonder why these things had to happen? an tahimik ng surigao tapos mabubulabog ng MALING BALITA... sabi ng iba, wla lang dw magawa. if that's the case, HELL with them! hindi ba nila naisip ang result? sana may law na to punish such misleading info and sana matukoy na sino sila! on the other hand, possible din ang economic sabotage! but WHO? who made it? Surigao is not that rich anyway although it is faring good economically... kung totoo man, sana whoever made such, develop thier own through active participation and other positive acts pero wag naman sana manira..
well, it's done. now that it's confirmed na HINDI TOTOO, i wish everything will return normal. But still, let's all continue to be vigilant and prepared just in case and continue praying. You never know what the future may bring!
txt came endlessly and 1 message i got that really caught my attention. It goes like this:
Chi Ming Tsoi vs CA:
"... love is useless unless it is shared with another... this is because an ungiven self is an unfulfilled self..."
the message sender was a co-law student also. how funny that even jurisprudence gives its own explanation of the very wide concept of LOVE.
the message is simple yet definitely true. however, it doens't give distinctions so must we... the word "another" as used doesn't connote a person from the opposite sex or a partner for that matter. all it said was another which may be anybody important to us... family, friends, and just everyone!
HAPPY HEARTS DAY! share your love not just today but always. mwah! =)
Your Social Dysfunction:HappyYou're a happy person - you have a good amount of self-esteem, and are socially healthy. While this isn't a social dysfunction per se, you're definitely not normal. Consider yourself lucky: you walk that fine line between 'normal' and being outright narcissistic. You're rare - which is something else to be happy about.

after 364 days, the time has come that i finally can go home to SURIGAO... that was december 21, 2005. as expected, i'm so eager and excited to go home, see my family and friends, no school, no work and party all vacation period!
that same day at the airport, i saw a high school classmate/ friend whom i haven't seen for 4 yrs i believe... we just smiled and greeted each other as i was about to grab something to eat and she was on her way to the rest room. when i came back to my seat, she was already crying and asking me to help her. ofcourse i was stunned why all of sudden the shift in her mood. she told me her mom just called crying also and telling her that her they(her parents) were kidnapped the night before and her mom was just released that same morning to raise the money for ransom. she even told me that nobody knows and her mom doesn't want to tell anyone cause of fear of what might happen to her dad and even, her mom wants her to back-out from the flight. when asked, she said that only the maid and her younger sister and her irresponsible brother are with her mom. i felt nervous ofcourse bec. she ran for me for help and i couldn't say no. now, im held responsible to do the best i can to help... but who am i to be involved in this serious matter? what i did, i called our friend who was the son of the city mayor and at the same time called mom to call kuya lyndon (who happened to be the governor of surigao). i was trying to relax her and was telling her all these comforting words with advise, etc. as we arrived in surigao, we immediately went to meet the governor and there they talked. afterwards, i was tasked to wait for her signal that her mom was ready to speak of the incident so that help could be extended to them by proper authorities. i haven't had any good sleep yet since i went out to give my intangible treat/gift to a good friend. it was already past 4 when i recived her signal so again, i contacted the governor and set their meeting once more.
maybe because of tiredness,i fell asleep. the next day, i became really busy doing errands for my mom to shop for those in her list whom she forgot to buy a xmas present and at the same time, i was busy wrapping gifts and delivering the same. also, the same day, 22, wasthe 1st day for the novena prayers for daddy who'll be celebrating his 2nd death anniv on the 30th. so i was also helping my sis bake and prepare food for those that will attend the prayers. then came 24th. me and my sis planned the noche buena and as we want it to be great, we prepared everything ourselves including the table setting and all. xmas eve was great! everyone was so happy and cheerful and enjoyed. the morning of 25, i woke up bec. someone was knocking at the bedroom's door. i opened it and saw my cousin crying saying "wala na si uncle bobby pau". i answered her "ows? come on! wag mo ako lolokohin ha at inaantok pa ako!". she said "totoo nga. papasukin mo nga ako!". then came her mom crying and woke my mom up with the bad news. everybody burst into tears and when we went out, the whole family was already in the sala. we were all worried how to give the news to lolodad, who is 86 yrs old and who did not have any idea that my uncle got sick. eventually, we have to tell him before the news starts to flash it on tv. and we were succesful.
starting that day, we were all busy accepting visitors who condoled. we had to move daddy's novena to 4pm to give way to uncle bobby's at 8pm. until came the dead body of my uncle to surigao on the 30th. the same day as my dad's death anniv. he was welcomed by the surigaonons as if he was a hero or even a saint because it was the first time that i saw the whole of surigao outside the streets waiting for the very long caravan with his coffin to pass by their houses. they placed the image of sto. niño of which my uncle was a devotee and some have candles lit at their homes and some have banners with their personal thanx and goodbye message to him. it was heart warming really... so in his stay there, we were busy everyday entertaining guests and preparing for food for the people. we rode an air force plane together with another plane for his remains and another for the other family members on jan 2 to bring him back here in manila where he will be burried. the whole surigao was mourning for him. and when we arrived here, we brought him to wpd then to senate then to crame and back to sanctuario de san antonio. the turn out of people was overwhelming and that is when we realized that he was really a good man who have helped so many people and how big he was in the society of which he never bragged about.
came jan. 5 for his internement. and after all this time of puyat and pagod, i felt like my body's giving up and needed a rest. finally, it's all over. a death turned into a grand show.
now, i kept on saying that "minsan na nga lang ako makauwi ng surigao, hindi pa ako makakalabas!" im not complaining pero ofcourse, nakakapanghinayang,.. but that's part of life and we have to deal with it. tpos, came to our mind that this is 3rd decemeber we had a family member passed away, the 1st was on dec 1, 2002- my lola's only sister who was single and lived with us. then dec 30, 2003- my dad and now, it's really xmas day-my uncle. i dont know what's with december that these traumatic things have to happen. i hope this is the end.. although i know that u cannot resist death, sana lang matagal n matagal pa ang susunod.
but somehow, someway, the holidays were still happy despite the incident. y? because this is the only time that the whole family was present. naipon kme and the relationship was renewed.
now, back to normal life. school and work and away from family... but as i updated myself with my friend's situation, im still saddened by the fact na hindi pa din narelease ang dad nya and even if they gave out already, the kidnappers are asking for additional 15M. i hope things will be better for them also. i hope there will come an end to their sorrow. continue praying for her. and thanks to all who sympathized and offered prayers for my uncle's eternal repose. THIS IS LIFE. i know there's a reason for everything,.
tama na kse sa sobrang haba, im feeling lonely na rin ulit and after being away from blog, im back with this really serious and sentimental one... hai! but im ok... =)
