That's what I'm asking for. :)

As I write this blog (probably type this with restless fingers), I'm already 46 hours away from the completion of my Supervised Industrial Training (SIT) at Emerson - Process Management. And as I blog this entry I'm also applying for an extension of 200 hours. 

It's really difficult on my part --- trying to juggle my time in the company for my SIT and also in TUP-T for the processing of my extension letter. Take note, I already made 2 letters for it. One for my Industry Supervisor and the other as a parental consent endorsed by our ADAA.

Here is the letter I made which is addressed to Mr. Diamse, our Program Coordinator edited by Sir Jerico:

February 28, 2011

Mr. Gilberto P. Diamse
Program Director
Technological University of the Philippines - Taguig Campus
Km 14 East Service Rd. Western Bicutan
Taguig City Philippines

Mr Diamse:


I would like to extend the Supervised Industrial Training (SIT) of Mr. Tobby B. Manongsong for 200 hrs.  Tobby is one of our hardworking interns; he acquired and developed skills during his training that are very helpful in assisting our engineers especially on the current project. I, Jerico Longjas as his immediate supervisor and team lead, am allowing him on his extension until he finishes the entire number of hours he extended.

Very truly yours,

Jerico G. Longjas
System Test Engineer - Team Lead
Fisher- Rosemount Systems, Inc. - PBO

Notice the higlighted sentence, it is Sir Jerico not I who included that line in the letter. Just so you know.. I don't have any self imposed notions of me being a harworking intern. :)

And the letter I wrote as proof that my mother knows my extinction extension:

March 7, 2011

Prof. Benedicta R. Tagayuna
Assistant Director for Academic Affairs
Technological University of the Philippines – Taguig
Km 14 East Service Rd. Western Bicutan
Taguig City Philippines

Mr. Jerico G. Longjas                                                                                                               
System Test Engineer – Team Lead
Fisher-Rosemount Systems, Inc. – PBO
33/F One San Miguel Ave. Condo Bldg.
1600 Pasig City, Philippines

To whom it may concern:

Good Day!

Upon Mr. Longjas’ request, I, Mrs. Semeorina B. Lisondra, am allowing my son, Tobby B. Manongsong on his extension for 200 hrs. This is because he wanted to further his knowledge and experience in the industry and to be able to contribute to the company’s productivity as a whole.

I waive the right to any claim for course of action which may happen during the duration of his extension.

Sincerely Yours,

Mrs. Semeorina B. Lisondra

Status of the extension letter? Still pending... I still have to approach our SIT coordinator and set things clear. After that alas! I'll be finish with my extension letter and later on will finish the number of hours I extended.

How did I managed that? Easy. Time Management that is. I did a lot of "waking up early" and did a lot of early outs (EOs) to process the letters. I also sacrificed some of my quality time to make way for more important matters.

I hope I can finish everything this week. Deadline is on Friday --- March 18, 2011. Fingers crossed on that.

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…
