a romantically desperate man





Going back to the corner where I first saw you,
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I'm not gonna move,
Got some words on cardboard got your picture in my hand,
Saying if you see this girl can you tell her where I am,
Some try to hand me money they don't understand,
I'm not...broke I'm just a broken hearted man,
I know it makes no sense, but what else can I do,
How can I move on when I'm still in love with you...

Cos if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be,
Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet,
And you'd see me waiting for you on the corner of the street.

So I'm not moving...
I'm not moving.

Policeman says son you can't stay here,
I said there's someone I'm waiting for if it's a day, a month, a year,
Gotta stand my ground even if it rains or snows,
If she changes her mind this is the first place she will go.

Cos if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be,
Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet,
And you'd see me waiting for you on the corner of the street.

So I'm not moving...
I'm not moving.

I'm not moving...
I'm not moving.

People talk about the guy
Who's waiting on a girl...
Oohoohwoo
There are no holes in his shoes
But a big hole in his world...
Hmmmm

and maybe I'll get famous as man who can't be moved,
And maybe you won't mean to but you'll see me on the news,
And you'll come running to the corner...
Cos you'll know it's just for you

I'm the man who can't be moved
I'm the man who can't be moved...

Cos if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be,
Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet,
And you'd see me waiting for you on the corner of the street.
[Repeat in background]

So I'm not moving...
I'm not moving.

I'm not moving...
I'm not moving.

Going back to the corner where I first saw you,
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag... I'm not gonna move.

learned something from photoshop

over the weekend...I spent this with my friends Za and MC at Tagaytay...

and I was fascinated with MC's laptop...she has her own macbook...

I was drawn to her desktop picture...it was simple enough...and she told me she made that through a snapshot she has...

with the help of photoshop!...

and off she goes to teaching me the basic steps of using "vector mask"...

wait! wait!...am interested...am listening...it was a good thing I'm a fast learner..and since I was really fascinated by it...it was easy enough for me to understand while MC was demonstrating it to me on her macbook...

it was a good thing also that she had this tutorial plugged into her ipod nano...which i was listening to....

and was so excited to get home and doodle with mypc's adobe photoshop...

and here are a few of them...



can't figure out the ipod nano

with Sean (Za's kid)

by the pool at Hotel Kimberly Tagaytay

my pic of my red drgaon Kitix

sorry am just a novice...but hey! with practice I can do a lot more with photoshop huh!

*****

you can also see more of the pictures here

did nothing over the weekend

well maybe not...

but this weekend was full of uneventful activities?...haha...just your ordinary regular weekend...which for me was kinda different coz I did nothing much...really...


we had our regular outreach activity at Marilac Hills...together with the school's NTF & staff...I didn't do much there but assisted my co-counselors Emma and Sir Alan with our group's activities...and just took some pictures...that even a few...




we spent half our day there in Alabang...and the traffic dis not help matters...I was waiting for them to pick me up at our village's gate...for 2 hours? i think...haha...so it was a good thing too that the activities we prepared was enough and we ended at noon...


just in time for me to meet up with my friends...at...SM Bicutan...wahahaha...after all the texting and negotiating...I ended up meeting up with Za and MC at SM Bicutan...more convenient for out driver Za of course so there would be just one pick up point...


and we headed off to a rainy Tagaytay...hmmm parang nangyari na ito? haha....the last time we went there it was raining too...and I told them this time...that I only had one jacket with me! hehe...


and i discovered one thing...what do you call... a hotel that you can't get to that quickly...i mean is not that public or accessible unless you have your own vehicle...and i mean...like ...there's no view...and it's in an almost isolated secluded...so private place...???... a tryst hotel! an affair hotel!...an illicit affair laden hotel! wahahaha



that's what we referred to Hotel Kimberly...in Tagaytay...it was really out of the way of the usual tourist destination in Tagaytay...for private people talaga sya...and for those who just want to relax and be away from it all...either legal or illicit hehe...



we stayed here overnight...it was affordable considering that they gave us a discount...they should! we were the only people there...hehehe well we saw a few people the night we came haha...and hardly any the next day when we checked out...


so what did we do here? we slept! haha...well Za and MC slept when we arrived at our rooms...and me...I was preoccupied teaching Sean his Kumon math and reading...Za said that was ne of the reasons she brought her son with her to do their HW...and with me there...who better to assist him haha...so once again I am called Teacher Kit by this kid...


after finishing a few pages of his Kumon and after waking up the mom and the tita...we headed out for our dinner...at The Boutique...hey wait! may resto ba dun i wondered?


and yup true enough...we were ushered inside...to this...boutique resto? huh...but when i read the menu...oh...it's The Original Hawaiin BBQ Grill resto with branches at yada yada yada haha...


now this part I enjoyed...the eating part of course... and why don't you just drool over these photos then haha...


our fave for the night - golden Shrimp



the original hawaiian baby back ribs



ordered Fried Chicken Coco something! for Sean




MC's recommended fried rice...with pineapple and bbq chicken



after downing all that...remember we were only 3 ladies and a little kid...so imagine how we managed that haha...MC and Za ended up having a tummy ache that night... too bad...


but we just had to find another stop...for our dessert...and we ended up at Cafe Breton...where the waiters were fascinated with Sean and kept chatting with him...he even ended up at their kitchen haha...



we went to the shop beside the cafe and browsed through their unique wares and jewelry...snapped a few photos until the staff there told us no pictures please! haha



had a few more photos...and headed back home to the hotel for a restful sleep... and to sleep off those unwanted pounds! grae we were so full that night!



*****


hmmm whoever wakes up early when staying at a hotel?... I know I didn't but when I checked my watch...it was still early...8am! hahaha...damn my biological clock!...


well after rousing each other up...together with Sean and MC we headed off to the lobby resto and had our breakfast...before heading off to the hotel's pool for an early morning swim...and yup! it was still dark and overcast...so you can just imagine the water's temperature...haha...the little tyke was brave enough and splashed away in the kiddie pool...MC had to back out coz it was really so cold that morning...we're in Tagaytay remember and it's not summer anyway...


Sean with "Teacher" Kit



Sean with Tita MC



fiddling with MC's ipod nano



after the kid had enough of the cold...we wnet up and started fixing our things for check out... and once downstairs...took some shots of the hotel lobby... was also quite fascinated with this new arrival...a foreigner and his Pinay wife and kid I believe...haha reminded me again of hte "illicit" hotel monicker...ang bad ko! haha


with Za and MC



and we can't leave Tagaytay withut some pasalubong...so we passed by Ilog ni Maria again...and two ladies replenished their stock of balm and cosmetics..for sure it would take time for them to get back to that shop...


anyone hungry yet? we haven't had lunch...haha and we headed down to Sta. Rosa to catch Kanin Club...but it still opens at 5pm...and so we thought why not eat at its branch in Alabang...better for me since it would be near my drop off...and once e were there...oops! still too early...so we roamed the cluster of restos...ate onion rings at Brothers Burger (no! si MC lang and Sean ang kumain nun!) and went back to Kanin Club...had the usual crispy binagoongan...and something quite new well sort of... Lemon Chicken...which as we all agreed would have been better if it were fish fillet instead haha...



I had to part with them at the gas station...as they headed off back home to Bicutan and QC...and me I just walked to ATC had mass and headed home afterwards...


*****


so after that weekend of doing nothing...am still quite tired haha

why choose a vampire over a normal guy?

to those who haven't read theTwilight Series of Stephenie Meyer...you may not know the answer to the question...and why others might really choose Edward Cullen over the average guy - fictional tho he may be...but what the heck...here are some of the reasons...girls go gaga over the vampire haha...


the last entry is outright funny for me!


found this at twilightsaga



A normal guy would say: “I love you Baby!”
Edward Cullen would say: “You are my life now.”


Normal Guy would say: “I think I am falling for you.”
Edward Cullen would say: “The Lion fell in Love with the Lamb”


Normal Guy would say: “You hair looks like a haystack; go brush it!”
Edward Cullen would say: "Your hair looks like a haystack but I like it.”


A normal guy would pick a random song from a random artist and dedicate it to you.
Edward Cullen would sing you a song he wrote for you while playing the piano.


If you die, a normal guy would find another.
If you die, Edward would kill himself cause life without you isn’t worth living.


"Well, I wasn't going to live without you.." He rolled his eyes as if that fact were childishly obvious. "..but I wasn't sure how to do it. I knew Emmet and Jasper would never help so I was thinking maybe I would go to Italy and do something to provoke the Volturi."


As you leave the house, a normal guy would say: “Bye, see ya!”
As you leave the house Edward Cullen would say: “Come back to me, love.”


He smiled my favorite smile. "Hurry back to me."
"Always."
As you come back to the house, a normal guy would be watching TV and wouldn’t even notice.
As you come back to the house, Edward Cullen would be welcoming you by playing the piano with a song just for you.


"I heard the music before I was out of the car. Edward hadn't touched his piano since the night Alice left. Now, as I shut the door, I heard the song morph through a bridge and change into my lulluby. Edward was welcoming me home.'


A normal guy would wait for you to make him breakfast.
Edward Cullen would make you breakfast everyday.


While you are both out for dinner, a normal guy wouldn’t keep his eyes off the sexy waitress.
Edward Cullen wouldn’t even notice the waitress was a female.


A normal guy, while driving, would keep one hand on the wheel and one hand on the radio.
Edward Cullen, while driving, would keep one hand on the wheel and the other attached to yours.


While far apart in different places, a normal guy would say: “I miss you.”
While far apart in different places, Edward Cullen would say: “It’s like you've taken half myself with you.”


A normal guy wouldn’t care or notice if you had nightmares.
Edward Cullen would sing until your nightmares went away.
"Do you want me to sing to you? I'll sing all night if it will keep the bad dreams away."


A normal guy does it with everyone.
Edward Cullen only does it with one.


A normal guy buys you flowers and chocolates.
Edward Cullen buys you a car.
