Additional characters. Ow-Jay-Tee (Part Four)

Here's an addition to the ever-growing family I have at Emerson. (As requested.)

Ma'am Emmy (Ma'am Shutterbug) - Why shutterbug? Because Ma'am Emz really loves taking pictures. She is approachable and patient. I tested her patience once, when I kept on asking her on how to install MUIWinPro7 manually and automatically. She never hesitated to reply on my endless queries and even gave me lessons on PHOTOGRAPHY 101 (Using her DSLR camera!) Cool! One of these days I'm going to ask her to teach me Photography 101 again. "Excited!"  

Ma'am Diane (The Announcer!) - "Let's get ready to rumble...." 
Nah! not like that kind of announcer.. Ma'am Diane is a different one. She electronically sends announcements on different events, one of which is the "Pizza @ the Pantry" announcement (which everybody loves and anticipates for). She doesn't only send invites, she also does the budgeting for the foods and other things to procure; she's the resident custodian; gives payslips to Test Engineers and employees, and a whole lot more!  

She is really into multi-tasking (I guess.) I think she's doing a great job! (Two thumbs UP for that Ma'am!)

Sir Marvin (The I.T. Dude) - "They say, "Pag kalbo.. MASAMANG TAO!" 
That ain't true for Sir Marvz! He's my dota-buddy at Emerson and my walking dictionary on Networking and PC troubleshooting. I frequently ask him with questions like " What if the boot manager is missing?" "How will I connect PC this to PC that using cmd?" and he will provide you with everything you ask for... (but don't ask for his age.. he's evasive about it. (0_o)

Next time you encounter a pc problem... Who you gonna call?
Sir Marvz! Sir Marvz!  

Bruno Watanabe (The Brazilian Japanese)  - He looks like a Japanese but speaks like a Brazilian, that's Sir Bruno! and that's the way he is. :) 

The only Foreign Tester I got to talk to, (because the previous testers were like.. "Hindi ko mahinuha ang mga accents nila!") hahaha! But sometimes I stutter or even grasp for the translation of the words that are ringing inside my Pentium 4 head..and he's like "What's that again?" and I go "Uhm.. uhm.. Never mind!"  Whenever he asks for my assistance I always see to it that I have enough tissue with me. In case I'm in the middle of my explanation (about running DeltaV) I can easily cover my nose with wipes and act like nothing happened. (I will simply let out a silent whimper... "My nose.. it bleeds.." )

As for Ma'm Remy.. I'm starting to know her more. Although she tries to discourage me to include her in my blogs, there's no stopping me from doing the deed. *evil laugh*

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
