The past few of days have been a roller coaster ride. I did not fall in love... Almost did, but unfortunately, it did not fall through...

REASON: It was not meant to be...

I met Lyanne in the chatroom a few days ago... The whole thing was wrong from the very beginning, come to think of it... We already were wrong for each other from the moment I received my first text message from her.
But I guess boredom would make you settle for anything less than you expected or wanted. We still texted each other, simply because there's no one else to text, or talk to... It turned out, in some way, there were things that the two of have in common... We were sweet to each other that she even called me 'dadz'. We decided to meet the next day...

Long story short, she was not that much into me, looks wise. Being dumped several times in my life already, I would know... She's not different with the other people who's turned me down... Yes, she looked nice and hot... and I looked like a drab... No effort from my part... But I believe that anyone who would like me when I looked my worst, likes me sincerely... I knew that she didn't but I turned a blind eye hoping that what I had to offer was enough to woe her into liking me...

It was stupid, and I know that... So yesterday I texted her about my status... THis is how the text conversation went...

Me: ilan ang nanliligaw sayo, o kaya yung nagpaparamdam?
Lyanne: 4
Me: kasama na ako dyan?
Lyanne: Nop
Me: Ang dami! So kung irank mo kami, pang-ilan ako?
Lyanne: Di ko masasabi, lahat kayo nasa getting to know each other stage pa lang...
Me: Okay, so pag nag-exert ba ako ng effort para ligawan ka, may pag-asa ba ako?
Lyanne: You don't have to just be yourself.
Me: Now that's my problem with you di ko nafifeel na you want to get to know me better.
Lyanne: That's up to you. Kung gusto mo friends muna tayo.
Me: Wow! Salamat!
Me: No offense meant, but I deserve better. I sincerely hope na mahanap dun sa 4 yung taong magmamahal sayo ng totoo.
Lyanne: if you're not going to say anything nice to me, then spare me!
Me: Im just being realistic, but ako pag nagmahal ako binibigay ko ang lahat... Now, kung hindi kayang suklian ng taong mahal ko yung mga iaalay ko, then she does not deserve my love...

end of texts...

Am I being a jerk? But in my defense, pinaasa niya ako...

I've been a commuter since 6th grade, and there've been a few instances that I have shown my horns and tail. I am a nice guy in general, but then if provoked, I could be the long lost son of Lucifer himself. I'm tactless and brutally frank... I've made enemies back in the old days because I can't seem to take away the habit of keeping my mouth shut... But that's a whole different story...

Today, I'm going to talk about my commuting horror stories...

So I was about to go home from a team-building (more like inuman party) in Makati. I rode the shuttle back to Parañaque and then there were these 2 pacoño girls who were in front of me... So the discussion goes like this (it was 2 years ago, so forgive me this is not accurate)...
Girl 1: I don't like sa Jollibee, kasi nakakasawa na food dun...
Girl 2: And I don't like the crowd noh. And di naman ako gutom eh...
Girl 1: Yeah, sa Starbucks na lang tayo... at least masarap pa pastries dun...
Girl 2: Right, and kahit bread land kainin naten, we always get full..
(this conversation went on for like 5 minutes... it did not make sense... so finally...)
Me: Kaya kayo tumataba eh...
(then there was like 30 seconds of silence...)
Girl 1: EXCUSE ME?!
Me: I'm s-s-so s-s-sorry miss, I'm drunk...
That's all I said, I don't remember if the girl slapped me, but I know the hour and a half long trip home was very uncomfortable... They stopped talking about food, but did not stop talking about my rudeness... Even the lady beside me was eyeing me cruelly... I think they all wanted throw me out of the van.


It's a habit of mine, since I take a bus ride going home, that I sleep for the greater part of it... And then there was this one time that I was really tired, I walked from the office to Megamall to the bus terminal (it was a long walk!!!), and I fell asleep... Moments later, I heard the ticket inspector saying "saan ang ticket ng boyfriend mo?" Then I felt my head being shrugged off by someone. Apparently, I slept on the shoulder of some guy that I didn't know... THat was embarrasing, (good thing I did not drool or something)... People were laughing... He did not notice also, cause I think he was asleep too...

I think that there's a conspiracy against me sometimes... I'm already late, but then on my way to work, every stoplight that we pass, when we're almost at the edge of the road or street, the light turns red... As in EVERY SINGLE TIME!!! And then this dumbass driver has to take a different route going to EDSA... So instead of from Baclaran, we had to go to Buendia, then to some backalleys, leading to Magallanes then EDSA... My bill was already a hundred bucks and I'm not in the Makati Business District yet... I got off Ayala and took the MRT going to Ortigas... I just got out of the cab and threw away a hundred bucks... The sad part was, it was not even traffic in EDSA!!!

You know that in buses, there are seats that can accomodate 3 people and on the other side, can sit 2... So there was this one night, I was on my way to work and I sat on the 2 seater side. Along came this couple who didn't have anymore place to sit on because the bus was already almost full. The woman sat beside me, and the guy tried to sit on the other side. I don't know, but there are really these insensitive people who don't really budge so that others can take their seat (I also do that, but then again that's only if ugly people are trying to sit beside me... or people who smell like sweat)... So this guy got irritated with the woman because she wasn't moving, and said... "ANG TABA MO KASI EH!" I found that really hilarious, and I laughed. So the couple got off, leaving me to face the wrath of the immovable object... Yeah, I think I heard her chanting something in her native witch tongue... But that was uber-creepy... I wasn't able to look at her after that...

Nope, I did not meet the Dalai Lama or the President of South Africa, or the Pope. Never met them, don't think I will ever do. The past couple of days, I've joined the seminar of the Human Resources department of the company that I'm currently working for. And it was attended by the supervisors of other accounts. It was a great seminar. I learned a lot and, and had a lot of fun while doing so.

To be honest, the company I'm working for is not perfect. I believe it's far from half to even becoming perfect. But the thing is, a lot of people are staying in the company for a long time. I for one am with the company for more than 2 years already. And I thought I was a dying breed in the company. Lo and behold, in our RCBC site, there were like other people who, like me had a 3-digit id number. There was even one who has a 2 digit id number. Of course, all of them have high positions already... (I'd like to say "us" but my title is not official yet)...

I remember now the reason why I liked it here... People, more specifically the supervisors and team leads are a happy... They (or rather we) have this happy disposition in life which affects everyone else... Their optimism are contagious. That is why alot of agents are staying with the company. Because no matter what the pressure is given to agents, at the end of the day, whether you make a sale or not, our team leaders are still content with what the agents are giving... They still joke around, and considers agents as friends and not slaves... That's the culture here in the company that I'm working for.

Damn, my whole weekend was about sleeping... Counting Monday and Sunday, I slept a total of 15 hours... interrupted of course... but I snoozed like Sleeping Beauty (I'm thinking of the guy who slept for like 20 years, forgot his name though.. so sorry about the analogy)... Anyway, I have this MAJOR hangover right now... because of oversleeping and not being drunk... I've been sober for like a week now... Not as if I'm a drunk or anything like that... This is what I feel when I sleep for a long time...
So last weekend was sort of exciting for the program... We chose 2 new Team Leaders for the program... Well, they deserve it... We chose these 2 people because we feel that they will be effective on the floor, as well as we all know that these 2 reps are going to be really dedicated on their jobs... I wish the both of them good luck...
Oh yeah, kudos to my program, they've been performing the last 3 days... Looks like come payday, I'd be broke once more... Sigh...
YOu know one thing that I would really like to do, is update you about my lovelife... Unfortunately, there is none... It's getting me depressed, as we're already into the rainy season... And these days usually are the peak of my desire-to-be-loved phases... And no, the love of my parents are not counted!!!
Oh yeah, I saw the movie Story of Us this morning... And i hate to say it, but it almost made me cry... ALMOST... This is the reason why I don't like to watch chick flicks... It's slowly turning me into one... The bad thing about it is that I cannot relate... Why am I being so emotional on stupid things like that, when I don't even like anything about it... Fuck!!! But the movie is beautiful... It's so not cheesy... Maybe these films are my guide to becoming a better husband or boyfriend or whatever... Or maybe I should play a little more of Resident Evil or Silent Hill... I think I need to put more testosterone in my body every now and then...
Been lurking on other people's blogs, and I found this wonderfully funny site, . It was funny, and is intelligently written... If the guy ever decides to become the country's John Stewart, he would be popular... I do hope though that what he was writing was his original ideas, I would hate to think that those brilliant heckling are just plagiarized from other genius' minds... that would be disappointing.
Just want to tell you, I have this penultimate crush... It's never going to happen, as I know I would never have enough courage to muster the words to tell this person how I really feel... Don't really know why this just came up... Never heard from her for like years already... Why did the feelings suddenly come back?! Makes me feel like crap....

Some more things, that I would like to indulge about myself... few more questions to answer...
as if you care...

When at home, you...
Watch DVD's, VCD's, television or read through my comic books. Of course, that's if I'm awake... I'm mostly sleeping when I'm at home...

Favorite movies of all time...
-Jerry Maguire
-Under the Tuscan Sun
-Shall We Dance
-The Wedding Singer
-Scent of a Woman

3 songs never to be deleted on your playlist...
-In Demand (Texas)
-You and Me (lifehouse)
-The Last Time (Eric Benet)

3 shows you watch regularly...
-Prison Break

Where do you hang-out?
If I'm not in the office, I chill out at Greenbelt, or Glorietta... maybe at Starbucks to google at the beautiful people passing by... just chillin'...

3 things you can't live without...
-a soft bed
-a pillow
-comic books

If you could have just one wish... what would it be?
That all of my wishes will be granted (I don't know why no one ever thought of that)

Did you have a good childhood?
Yeah... I knew how to play children's games like monkey monkey, patintero, block 123... I was a witness to the height of popularity of Ultraman, Bioman, Magmaman, Shaider, Takeshi's Castle... I had a lot of the classic GI Joe, Transformers, Dino Riders, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures... I was born and grew up on one of the best decades of my age...

What kind of student were you?
I was not a loner, more of a commoner back in high school... that's why I enjoyed college better... Simply put, I was cooler back in college... Although, my friends in high school were the ones who stuck with me... I wonder why that is...


As much as I would like to give you more, I have a shift to start in about an hour and I have to prepare... I'll just put some more info I'd divulge when I think of things that I deem okay to let y'all know...

I am not a geek, I just have a lot of free time... which I should be using to interact with other human beings...

Eric Benet

The first time I fell in love was long ago.
I didn't know how to give my love at all.
The next time I settled for what felt so close.
But without romance, you're never gonna fall.

After everything I've learned;
Now it's finally my turn.
This is the last time I'll fall... in love.

The first time we walked under that starry sky,
there was a moment when everything was clear.
I didn't need to ask or even wonder why,
because each question is answered when your near.

and I'm wise enough to know when a miracle unfolds,
this is the last time i'll fall in love.

Now don't hold back, just let me know.
Could I be moving much too fast or way too slow.
'Cause all of my life, I've waited for this day.
To find that once in a lifetime, this is it,
I'll never be the same.

You'll never know what it's taken me to say these words.
And now that I've said them, they could never be enough.
As far as I can see, there's only you and only me.

This is the last time I'll fall in love.
Last time i'll fall in love.
The last time i'll fall... in love.


I just want to share this wonderful song with y'all...

Aug 7, 2006


I don't know what to feel right now... I'm excited... I'm happy... but at the same time, I'm a nervous wreck... There's something I can't really explain that I'm feeling... It's more than just butterflies in my stomach... I guess this is how you feel when you get promoted... After more than two years of working for ICT, I am promoted to Supervisor for our account...

I've been Associate Supervisor for the program for 6 months, and the reason for my promotion is that my boss, Ms. Teena, is getting married. She was the Supervisor for our campaign for almost 3 years, starting up the program when it came to the company. She's leaving the country to be with her beau, and to live life there as one half of a happily married couple. Of course I'm happy for her, she deserves to live that kind of life... She's been single for like a long time... I don't think that she's going to let work stand in the way of her happiness... I don't think that anyone would let that happen...

So anyway, back to me... I'm putting too much pressure on this thing... I feel I deserve this position as I've worked my ass off ever since I got my first promotion... But then again, there's this feeling that I am still a greenhorn at all this leadership stuff... Two years of leading a team of 10-20 agents may not be enough experience in leading a group of 80...

I'm strong... And I'm smart... and I'm not alone... I guess, that's just all I need to tell myself now... I have a great roster of team leaders at my disposal... They will help me out...

Supervisor... heh, who would've thought?!

The team

Aug 5, 2006


Just some random Q & A's...

Real Name: Gilbert A. Ogario
Nickname: Take your pick, Gilbert, Jun, Gillboard, Gil, Engel, Berto, John John, Jao, Bebe
Dream Name: Samuel Fisher... my mom wanted to name me Jeffrey...
Occupation: Part-time Telephone Sex Operator, but mostly as a Call Center Supervisor
School: San Beda (Marketing Management graduate)
Age: 24 actual age... age by actions 17... physically looks like a handsome 25 yr old guy
Company: ICT Group Ortigas... previously from eTelecare...trained in United Overseas Bank
Hobbies: Watching movies, sleeping, reading comic books, books, music and blogging
Birthday: February 24, 1982

What will you see in my cellphone?
In my Nokia phone... messages mostly consist of excuses why an agent won't be able to come in to work that day... a few jokes, a lot of inspiring and friendship quotes... old pics of myself... and that' it... As for my Sony phone... lots and lots of pictures... slow music on my mp3... green jokes, a few quotes on friendships... a lot of green jokes...

Last movie I saw.
Miami Vice... I love films by Michael Mann... this one is good... the films that he did are all thought-provoking and violent... but this one... not so much... although there were a lot of sex that went on with Gong Li and Colin Farrell... I enjoyed it... too bad for the people who went with me...

Why oh why are you still single?
I don't know. I take a bath everyday. I think I'm smart. I really have no answer for that...

Weirdness factor.
How weird am I? Let's see, I'm the only guy in the office that collects comic books religiously... I get this vibe that people see me as someone who'll eventually become the guy in 'The 40 year old Virgin.' I'm an only child and I live alone... there's also the feeling that I may be viewed as Norman Bates in Psycho... but I tell people not to worry because that only happens whenever there is a full moon... (Psycho soundtrack starts playing)

Are you stupid?
I try my very best to act intelligent and distinguished... but ultimately, I always fail... I always say the dumbest things at the wrong times... So because of that, yes, I am stupid... But a sexy stupid and not the dumb stupid...

Have you been on tv?
Ha yes... I've joined a few game shows before... And when I was still studying in Mendiola, I was a regular spectator during rallies in the area... You would've seen me behind reporters when they're doing their reporting...

Anything interesting you would like to say?
Yep. That's it

I don't know... I think I'm great in bed... I could hit the right tunes if asked to sing... uhm... I've finished Resident Evil 4 twice, is that considered as a talent? and oh yeah... I'm a good writer... I think...

Final words?
Read my blogs... Give comments...
