Probinsyano Mode

I arrived here in the town of Pozorrubio days ago before Christmas. I was sooo excited, I only stopped once in the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) to order a grande praline mocha. The rest was a 100kph speed of acceleration and exhilaration.

The weather during the long drive was fine, I had to take my wayfarer off fast which made me miss it. Of course I cannot just wear sunglasses in a gloomy and tiring afternoon, I might miss a crossing pedestrian and worse to doze off immediately.

The usual 4-hour travel was reduced to 3 when the brand new Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) was opened to the motorist mid this year. Made time really precious, but please be really careful cos it's deceitful; driving there is so hard and boring especially at night. It's too dark and the sideways are all empty and sad, really boring, you would get my point if you had experienced to do so.

And as we reach closer, I try to lag my lids as they want to close shut, the caffeine stopped kicking. Luckily, Rihanna and Chris Brown made the car like a disco club in no time after jacking my iPod, which made me sing like a mad man trying to wake myself up. It was horrible to drive sleepy, even the excitement was drained away from my body.

Then the music stopped while on Rihanna's "Please don't stop the music".

Gawd!

I took my REMing brother's iPod and set it into shuffle.

Thank God!

First song was "I'm coming out", a retro. O'ryt!

My hometown, despite being unexceptional and not so popular, has its motivation and own way to make me want to go back. I dunno what its secret, but a some kinda force if pulling me back to where I used to belong. My childhood memories linger every time I go to places I've been before, especially during this season wherein it's one of the most glorious past experiences in my childhood that remains intact in my memory centers.

Celebrating Christmas here in the province is like a walk down memory lane. It's been a while since my last Christmas in here. When I entered college, we would always celebrate Christmas in Quezon City and would just go back to Pangasinan to celebrate New Year, so staying in here would just take me a few days and not weeks.

Then I just realized I cannot stand living here again for a very long time. The house is well equipped but it's boring me out; the nights are just too long, the nearest cities are miles away, the civilization is undiscovered. Hahaha... The last one is of course a joke.

I can hear birds twittering, not bloggers who twit. Fireflies are blinding and the silence is deafening.

I got used to the city life. I am used to it and still loving it. Where I can go anywhere not getting bored. It's like everyday is a new day. Wherein the nightime is always from 12-6. Where everything's available and accessible.

You knoe what? After a few days, I got really bored. Seriously... Makes me want to go back to QC which is sooo unlikely to happen, my mom will kill me. That's probably the reason why I want to be a clinician and not a surgeon cos I easily get bored.

Owell, I have 2 weeks in the province. By then, I would probably appreciate the twittering, the fireflies, the silence, the long nights... the life in the province... it's sooo weird!

Let's see... maybe it's not really a bore. I just have to adjust and appreciate the simplicity of my hometown.

Apparently, an old bridge along the "old Kennon road" going to Baguio City. You rarely see this kind of bridge already, wherein vintage balusters were used as railings. Cool huh?

Merry Christmas Earthlings!

2009 Starbucks planner

Oh, finally! The yearly planner's already in my hands! My mom got hers I think weeks prior, I got mine just last Sunday while on our way home to Pangasinan.

My mom took the blue one, I got the black. She doesn't want the blue so we exchanged.

Blue is love! Here it is!

The pages are pretty much the same every year. And it doesn't have freebies! I wish they bring the discount coupons back! Right?

It looks like a previous planner, I think 2 years ago??? But it was dark brown. A lot of people say they don't like this year's planner because it's too simple and cheapy but who cares? It's a planner for toot-toot sake!

For me I don't care, it's already like a tradition to get the yearly planner. And like I said it's a planner, who cares how it looks?!

Oh! But the free pen that I got was dysfunctional! It's not working, so I suggest that they should prolly check the pens first before distribution. Eryt?

That's all for nao.

Begin. Grow. Flow.

Mojo on the go!

Caption this,

Mojo, my cousin's dog's soooo freakin cute and clever! Really clever, and uber hyper. She brought him here in the province so... He's nao a probinsyanong dog... Wahahaha...  And so I think he deserves a portion in my blog. Check him out at Petster.com!

Rock on section C! I love the bar... I love the mixes! I love every drink served! Yeah! Liquors flowing left and right... I just can't stop! If I weren't driving, for sure I was dragged home by friends...

I was impressed! The best house party I had, so far...

It's a nice advent to the season of parties! It was really a good start! Looking forward to upcoming parties this December! Yeah!

Oh, I just can't help it, the kick is still all over my body.

G'nyt Earthlings! Merry Christmas!

Keep on dancing!

I am conceited? Oh yeah...

These are some rants, hate notes and sarcasms...

Many people don't, can't and wouldn't understand me. I knoe a lot of my readers don't knoe me either. Some things I don't disclose here, I could be weird but I like the way I am.

If you want to be my venting machine, if there even's such a thing... then you can read further... it's just for nao, just for this entry... ROFL. or maybe another... next time. But you will likely know me more just by reading further.

I am no saint.

I don't chase people, that is cos they chase after me. Unless you are God, or my professor for crying out loud, then I will prolly chase after you.

I also don't reject people, I just don't. Did you knoe that I don't reject strangers who want to add me as their friend in Friendster? I knoe, right? Friendster? I simply don't cos it's rude! but I don't add them up either. What I usually do is to collect these buddies, let them wait in the pending list, and it's up to them if they can wait for me to approve their invitation. Which is actually not going to happen. Sometimes, if I think the "stranger" is familiar, likable or hot, or cute, then I message them back to check if I really knoe them and if not then I check their vocab and intellectual capabilities.

How rude could you possibly be?!

I knoe, right?

Enough said. I was just rejected 3 times in a row for the past month! I don't knoe why but I am pretty much sure it's karma, what goes around comes around. And it goes around again, so let's just wait for another round of the vicious cycle.

I also hate waiting. I am impatient. Possibly the most.

Patience is the virtue, Dak.

I knoe! But it's not of my virtues...

I can work a little bit on it but c'mon! I cannot just wait for years for a person to stop treating me like I am the lowest life-form on earth. Duh, I am not a crawler! I have my own time, it's valuable, I cannot just give my time to people who doesn't value my time. Waste your own not mine.

And I hate it when people make an impression of me as being grumpy or grouchy like they knew it for the very first time. Cos I am indeed a bad-ass irritable person. Stick that into your minds, better yet let thyself reminded with a post-it. I think my low threshold for irritation is primarily due to being a practical person, and I sooo hate impractical individuals.

I also don't like my stuff pointed out. I hate dictators. Where is the freedom in this country, right? So stop telling me what to do or when to brush my teeth! I do the pointing, and I act out what I want to showcase. This would primarily be the reason why I hate going to meetings where people distribute the job, with the shortest deadline you can ever imagine.

I embrace deviancies. And I avoid people who don't cos they are usually the ones who treat people very badly. When people laugh at deviants, I don't. They don't deserve it. It's their choice to be different, not ours. So stop stereotyping and treat these individuals like you would treat a normal.

I believe in God, but I don't believe in religion. So stop calling me an aetheist cos it's not an appropriate description for me, better yet check your vocabulary. I've posted a few stories here about my beliefs and spiritual perceptions. I am not lost.

I hate kiss and tell, even in the most simplest ways. Exaggeration intended.  So if you want to be my person, learn how to zip your mouth, shut.

I love discussions and debates but I knoe when and where to stop. All good things must come to an end, right? So I stop when I knoe it's not going anywhere. I would rather walk than talk endlessly; at least in walking for sure I'd be located somewhere in the end. Like I said I am very practical. And also, I am a good listener. That's why I am still and yet again single, for a very long time.

If I report in class or elsewhere, I do my own presentation and research. I can't if others do it for me. I can't rely on other's help in this case. I am sorry but I just can't, it makes matters worse. That's the reason why I am very toxic days prior to the reporting cos I do everything.

I like kissing. Kissing on a first date is okay with me, as long as you have a good hygiene and intact hypoglossal nerves that can bend an apple tree, not just a cherry stalk.

Oh it's so nice doing this kind of post. I knoe, right? Cos I am conceited.

Hmm, let me do an encore... soon.

***
This was inspired by my friend Cams who described me as being conceited during our Christmas party last Friday. Thanks! It was an eye opener. ROFL.

And also by the people who made my day so dearly for the past days or months or this year. You were an inspiration. Yown!

Get the lower segment...

Of what?!

Examine the neck. Do the fluid wave test.

Those were the three examinations I randomly picked in our practical exam a while ago.

My initial thought when I was instructed by our facilitator to get the child's lower segment was blank. Nothing. I don't know what she meant with get the lower segment.

I skipped and did the neck examination and the fluid wave test first. Then...

Get the lower segment.

I thought I heard it wrong.

Come again?

Get the lower segment.

But it was right. What is the lower segment?

I asked her what "lower segment".

She said

Kahit ano. (Anything)

I didn't get it.

Ok, Kahit ano...

So I thought I should just examine the lower segment of the patient, as in any examination. I took the reflex hammer from the table and tapped the child's knees.

Knee jerk reflexes are +2, meaning normal.

The doctor smirked.

What?!

What is the lower segment?!

I was thinking desperately,

C'mon!

Then I finally heard the bell. The bell! My 2 and a half minutes lapsed, went out of the cubicle frustrated.

Nao I am eating it out.

That is the reason why med students are unknowingly gaining so much weight, significantly...

Wishlist 2008

Wah! Hello December! Last week, I was able to jog around the campus twice in a row. And it's already very Christmassy and bright inside the entire Univ. However, the tree is unremarkable, I dunno tho if that was it or it's not yet totally done. Do you guys already experience the difficulty in getting up from your beds early in the morning cos it's too cold, it feels so good behind those blankets? Owell! It's just a few days before Christmas so I'd better do this wishlist so that you can prep these for me. ROFL.

  • Lancome, Miracle for Men
  • Miracle Cologne by Lancome for Men 

    It's love at first smell. Yikes! I am not very particular to the perfumes that I wear, cos I knoe everything smell good on me. It must be my sweat. ROFL. But this is really good, I swear to all the whores along Q.ave. But I knoe! It's expensive, so Nautica Blue will do. Hahaha.
  • The 4 Stephenie Meyer's novels
  • c20585 

    I never watched the first movie cos I haven't read the book yet. This coming Christmas break, I intend to respite from traveling cos I've done a lot of flying and moving this year. So, it's time to read... not med books of course, the fictionals that I missed especially the last HP book and some more books unfinished.
  • Shades
  • 800px-RayBanWayfarer800px-RayBanAviator 

    There are only 2 shades that I really want to get before the year ends. The Wayfarer and the Aviator. I actually have the latter that fits perfectly on me but unfortunately I lost it. I think I left it in the car and never saw it again. And it sucks cos it's the vintage type.
  • A cardigan
    I think and hope my mom will give me this one. Cos everytime I talk to her over the phone, she keeps on telling me that she's been into this shop to another looking for a cardigan. Cos I've been telling her that I am looking for one.

What?! Guess in Baguio doesn't have cardigans? Whoa!

  • Battery charger for AA
    This one I listed in our kris kringle wishlist with friends. I already have one but it's not flexible or I dunno what's the term... anyhow, it's not ideal for traveling. Cos it's the one fixed to 110 volts. I knoe right? I want something flexible...
  • "Baby" Barbara Bate's Guide to Physical Examination
  • image 

    Gawd! this is an expensive "Baby" book that I lost. Cos I lost the colored version. It comes in 2 versions in the market; the black and white recopy and the colored shiny paper. I just woke up all of a sudden looking for this book not in my bookshelf.
  • Analogue watch
    Apparently, I'll be a medical clerk next year and watches are must haves. Of course we need to be always on time. But why specifically analogue? It's easier to check the vital signs of the patients like the pulse and respiratory rate using an analogue watch. I am not really a watch person but since it's a thing that doctors in the wards should have, then I should start investing on it.
  • Ipod classic
    I was thinking maybe I can let my very old, first generation Ipod shuffle to retire. Since it's memory is only 512MB, the sound quality also is really far lower than the newer Ipods. Seriously...

There you go! Ahm, those are just the things I can think for nao...

What do you guys want this Christmas?

I am just curious... but I am not your Santa Clause...

Oops! Forgot! Of course I am wishing for Peace on Earth! Hahaha...
