In Memoriam: Awesh Shrestha (MBA2005)

We thought he had a nice butt.

He looked Indian, he quickly corrected us… he was Nepalese.

We were surprised he knew how to speak tagalong… real words…not just the bad words.

He was our resident playboy.

He was smart too. Quite proficient in Finance.

He was a good friend.

We will miss you Aw-aw. Be with God always.

American - Idol - Dream

Mom texted from Illinois. It's Taylor Hicks.

I'm still watching later.


My officemate said Taylor Hicks' rise to fame is the ultimate American dream. It's more believable if he wins.

Death and Birth

Marissa Cooper is dead.

The producers of The O.C. killed her off. A car crash. After three seasons they kill her.

What were they thinking? I mean... it's like killing one of the Friends!

As long as Seth Cohen is alive I guess it's okay.


I have a bad feeling Taylor Hicks will be the next American Idol.

Damn Simon! His last remark made me scream "Nooooohhhh!!!"

You can tell I have the Mcpheever!

Why is it people I want to win don't win?!

You can also tell I'm a Bo Bice fan.

Tomorrow, a new American Idol will be born...

Blah! Blah! Blah!



I'm often restless. Like there's a need to be some place else doing some other thing thinking that would make me happier. I'd start to hate what I'm doing but unlike other people who are quick to resign and look for other jobs, I complain instead and grit my teeth until I finally can't take it anymore. I have, after all, bills to pay and shopping urges to satisfy. That keeps me motivated for awhile.

Argh! I'm bored.

Maybe it's the weather.

My high school friend sent this to me and with my current state here in the office I thought it was just apt to post it... I know some of you can share my sentiments...

1. "boss, makinig ka kaya sa akin!"

2. "puwede ba, busy ako? "

3. "make your own f--ing letters and presentations."

4. "if challenges are more important than financial rewards, then why won't you just trade in your salary for my challenges? "

5. "Of the 10 assignments you gave me the past three days, can you please decide which one is really "the most important and crucial and is to be submitted ASAP?"

6. "absent ako today. wala lang, ayokong makita ka eh..."

7. "uwi na ako ha. bahala ka na dito sa opis.. "

8. "boss, puede bang taasan mo sueldo ko? ang hirap ksi ng trabaho ko eh, pakisamahan ang isang kagaya mo! "

9. "ano?!! di mo alam mag-print? sayang ang laptop mo ma'am. "

10. "if you really think it's THAT important, di ikaw gumawa"

11. " uh, di ka ba nahihilo sa kaka-solitaire mo? gusto mo magtrabaho naman for a change? "

12. "Huli kayo! nanonood din pala kayo ng VCD ha!"

13. "Sir, lahat ng kelangan niyo nandyan na.. kelangan niyo lang tingnan mabuti!"

14. "nagtataka talaga ako kung bakit napunta ka sa puwestong yan. "

15. "Basahin mo muna ang LAHAT ng e-mail messages mo bago mo sabihin na hindi ko pa nagagawa yung pinagawa mo."

16. "kabit mo ba yung prinomote mo?"

17. "do you feel threatened by my genius?"

18. "I don't know what your problem is, but I'll bet it's hard to pronounce."

19. "I'm not being rude. You're just insignificant."

20. " I'll try being nicer if you'll try being smarter."

21. "di yan kasama sa job description ko, 'no"

22. "if i do what you tell me to, will this change the world?"

23. "is it your good looks, your family connection or your charming disposition kaya ka andyan sa puwesto mo? it definitely has nothing to do with your intellect"

24. "okay lang umabsent ka. it does not really make a dent here in the office. mas maaga pa kaming makaka lunch"

... and there so much more I'd like to say.

Looking forward...

Looking forward to watching M.I. 3 and Da Vinci Code (if it doesn't get banned otherwise I have to wait for the pirated dvds to come out).

Looking forward to watching my favorite inaanak in her ballet recital at the end of the month.

Looking forward to another long weekend, June 12 falls on a Monday.

So Long...

It's been awhile since my last post. I blame work. Too busy to sneak in a little blog time at work and too tired to do it at home. It's been crazy around here in the office. We moved from the 3rd floor to the 9th. They gave me this nice cozy nook. Keeps me hidden when I don't want to be found.

Between doing other people's backlog and my own I suddenly ask myself if this is where I want to be. But as long as the money keeps coming enough to pay my credit card bills and shopping binges I can't really complain.

If something comes along, would it be evil of me to suddenly leave here? I'm a month away from being permanent. And somehow I feel bad just leaving my team hanging when they've just started recuperating from a terrible mass resignation before I arrived. I also enjoy being with most of my officemates, although I wish I could talk to someone who shares my passion for fashion.

I dunno... I just think gone were the days when people stayed in one company for decades. Omigosh! Imagine doing the same thing over and over and over and over...

Obviously I'm getting bored...
