Yesterday late afternoon, a stranger approached me. She introduced herself and told me that she's from one of the TV Production units. They're going to present to one of company's top executives in a few minutes and they don't have a Mac VGA adapter. She's asking if she can borrow mine. She seemed to look... Continue Reading →
What I would say to some officemates
Be (at least) on time for meetings, especially if you are the chair. Let us out of the elevator first before you attempt to go in. Do not pee on the toilet seat. Lift it up first. Flush after using.
On Swimming, Christmas Parties, Having a Full Day and Joining Bike Rides
My body is aching from yesterday's swim. I only did three laps but it seems like I did more. I should relearn how to relax in the water again. Yesterday was the Outing/Christmas party of the office, and we did it in 8 Waves. It was fun and a very welcome change from the previous... Continue Reading →
A Lesson on Physics in the Office
Two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same time. That's what our high school physics teacher taught us. I know that, you know that. So if I scheduled a whole day workshop in the conference room first from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., why would you schedule a meeting there from 2:00 p.m.... Continue Reading →
I can help improve lives
I woke up asking myself why I'm willing to be stuck in an office, managing projects today when I could be on my way to Northern Luzon to help those that were badly affected by Typhoon Juan. I can do better things. I can help improve lives. I can help ease the pain.
An Office All-Nighter After A Long Time
I was here in the office at 8:20 in the morning for a conference call that didn't push through. It's 12:21 a.m. and I'm still here, making sure that the project I'm launching, hopefully in a bit, is acceptable. I remember our weekly all-nighters when I started working here. Romy was my boss and we... Continue Reading →

Tsokolate Batirol Discussions
While drinking hot chocolate in the Loop. Dennis: Ang lapot 'no? Jovan: Malungkot kasi siya doon eh! Kaunti lang ang umo-order. Kung araw-araw 'yun pihadong ang labnaw niyan!
That’s Not Right
You know something's fishy when your Admin Officer is sporting LCD monitors while your creatives are using three year-old CRTs. While the latter is trying his best to use Photoshop in a 17" screen, the former is loving the full glory of Mafia Wars in full digital display. Fail.
A Bigger Team Would Be Nice
I haven't blogged in a long time. Although I've been meaning to, I'm just too tired to write my thoughts. That's why I'm more active my Twitter account than here.There are a lot of things happening in the office. I think I have about eight projects lined up, with priority levels that start from medium,... Continue Reading →
Online Operations invades Punta Fuego
Now what you're about to see here is a Rotten Boy video. Dennis and I, together with the Online Operations team (well, at least those who can pay for P40.00), did a day trip to Punta Fuego for our unofficial company outing. Yes, you read that right - it's unofficial. That's because we're doing some... Continue Reading →

Please Make It Stop
Please make the meetings stop. That would be a great gift for anyone in the office.After the big re-org, I can't help but notice how many meetings I've been attending everyday. It's actually getting to be too much that I end up doing nothing when the day ends.What do you guys think about having a... Continue Reading →
