something new I do every morning

Finally, I was able to use the swimming trunks and goggles I bought a long time ago. If I remember correctly, the trunks was my first credit card purchase which was more than a year ago (I'm not counting but I know this because I already paid an annual fee for it, which was waived for the first year).
I was able to use it three times already. This morning, I swam for 30 minutes almost non-stop. I can feel that my Latissimus Dorsi is starting to build shape. hehe
I was quite shy to wear the trunks at first (although I am still shy) because it shows a relatively large area of skin (wish I had bought the cycling shorts version instead). The photo below is not me wearing it. The shape of the trunks in the photo is pretty much the same as what I use. If you want to see the actual me wearing this, wearing only this (ala Titanic), visit the Ateneo Happee pool anytime from 6AM to 8AM, Monday to Friday. I'll be there if I don't press the snooze button too many times.

what if I lived in school?

Check out my office and living quarters. hehe

This is crazy

Went this afternoon with three of my SE students, two of whom are betting for the first time.
I spent 120PhP for three sets of numbers for two draws and waited in line for at least 10 minutes. Wish me luck...
What'll I do with it if I win? I'll think about it when I get there (as if naman,  three out of 49!/((49-6)!(6!)) combinations, that's 13,983,816 combinations).

Haay buhay...

Don't want to work abroad.
Don't want to work.

Love my enjoyable job as teacher (and student) even though I don't get to buy all the gadgets I want.

But I have to. :-(

Here are some related positions I saw while searching the net. Okay lang unahan n'yo ako, still waiting for my transcript before I send my applications. Sana lang hiring pa sila.

On second thought, I heard there are local employment opportunities that offer very attractive compensation that can cover my family's monthly financial expenses. Will try it out with them first. :D

Team Sabado wins first game in 3 years

"I dreamt about it last night", said team captain JP Pangilinan, who scored most of the points for the team through fast break, free throws and three pointers. "I had good feeling at the start of the game."

Although no one knows whether he was just kidding, the team was very happy with the way they played. Undermanned with only one reserve player, the team kept the same pace throughout the game. The opponent lead during the first quarter but with the collective effort of the "magic six", as Pangilinan calls them, the lead was overcome and the opponent never lead after the first half. The magic six was composed of Miko Sabado, Guiller Salumbides, Fred Geronimo, Stephen Cate, JP Pangilinan, and of course the awesome and recently chickenpoxed Rod Coronel. The game ended with a score of 58-38.

"I didn't expect it", said Rod Coronel. "Gatorade must really work! Now we know how to win..." In a recent blog post, Coronel promised to bring the said sports drink due to a bad experience in their previous game of having nothing to replenish his thirst. Playing coach Miko Sabado emphasized that they should maintain a same strategy and pace for the remaining games if they want to make it to the final four.

The win was the first real win of the team in their third season playing in the ABL (Ateneo Basketball League). Last season, the team was able to obtain a single win, but only through default.

The question now is: will history repeat itself? It can be remembered that the franchise, during their three years in the IAC basketball league was winless in their first two years. Dropping the Choopuppies team name, the team redeemed itself on its third season in the league, winning five out of seven games in the eliminations and reaching the final four. Will they do the same thing this year? We'll know the answer for sure after their next four games, three of which they have to win.

The team was cheered by a loyal fan, Chi Billiones who was the lone supporter of the team throughout the game.
