Penoi in Pune India

We are already here in Pune india for our training in Solaris. We took a 5-hour flight from Singapore to Mumbai.. and another 3-hour-lots-of-truck-on-the-road drive from Mumbai to Pune. Pune is very much like Manila. The main mode of trasportation here is motorcycle...A motorcycle cost more about 25,000 indian rupee roughly Php26,000.

Pune is entering its rainy season good thing i brought my umbrella. Im still adjusting to Indian food. :( how i miss San Antonio's lomi back in the Philippines.

Guitar Rhapsody

Umikot kami ng pinsan ko dito sa Singapore noong Sabado. Ipinakita niya sa akin ang mga Music stores na madalas nilang puntahan. Ilan sa mga nakapukaw ng aking atensyon ay ang mga ibat ibang disenyo ng mga gitara.

Penoi @ the Orchard

I filed my Overseas Workers Welfare Administration(OWWA) and my SSS at the Philippine Embassy here in Singapore. Tama nga ang sabi nila, mabilis ang processing ng documents since konti lang ang tao sa embassy. Habang nagfifillup ako ng document ko para sa SSS, narinig ko ang dalawang pinay na nag-uusap. Umiiyak yung isa, magfi-file daw siya ng complain laban dun sa agency nila. Tumakas lang daw siya para lang makapunta sa embassy. Sa madaling salita, naloko sila ng agency. Yung isa daw kasama nila, dentist ang inaplayan, pero pagdating dito eh naging domestic helper lang.

Hirap talaga ng buhay, marami talagang kumakapit sa patalim para lang makapagbigay ng magandang buhay sa pamilya.

Nung pabalik na ako sa office, nasa orchard ako at hindi ko alam kung saan pedeng tumawid papuntang Lucky Plaza. Nakita naman ako ng mga tao na basta lang tumatawid. Naghintay ako na ma-clear ang daan at maraming dumadaan na mabibilis na sasakyan.

Biglang may dumating na dalawang pinoy sa likod ko. Tanung ng isa, " May tawiran ba dito??"... sagot nung lalake, "Meron siguro, kasi naghihintay ang isang ito".. sabay turo sa akin...

Awww, napagkamanlan pa akong ibang lahi... siguro akala nila eh European????? american??? or indian ako... hehehe...

Journey Revelation album: Out of Stock on Walmart

Journey Revelation Album out of stock on Walmart


Journey Revelation was "Out of Stock" on Walmart's online order, a day before the release of the much awaited comeback album of Journey, . It only proves that the Revelation album is going to be a big hit on the market.


Though its sad to say that it is also a victim of piracy offered free through P2P programs and other mp3 downloadable sites. Please support Journey!!! go buy the original!!!
