Wow! It’s been a while since I have posted from this site… Well, if you don’t know yet, this blog is dedicated for my deep personal thoughts. This is kinda hidden, kinda private and mostly texts unlike my freshly new wordpress blog 😛

Monday: was a holiday, I just kept on fixing my blog’s migration from blogger to wordpress! I made a dangerous move… changing the url of my wordpress log-in… It took me time before I repaired it really.

Tuesday: struggling day at the office. slept super late at night, woke up really early =.= I would like to thank Jehz for helping me migrate my blog 😛 and for hosting my wordpress bloggy

Wednesday: Nuffnang PH is here! Got another letter from Roanna! and… I’m a glitterati member 😛 This is also the start of my Six Sigma Training. We tackled “Critical Thinking” in the morning… Then in the afternoon, we talked about the basics of six sigma.

Thursday: computations for six sigma… we used the “minitab” software… I hate stats but I love math!

Friday: I think I aced the six sigma exam 😛 but so tiring when I went home around 5
:30 pm.. heavy traffic! I drove for 2 hours from The Enterprise Center to Commonwealth. Right now, my back hurts!!! Really painful!

To do tomorrow:
– add ads to my posts and edit categories at the same time
– complete thumbnail of featured ones.
– must start doing yoga again :S

too tired to function,

Hacking Time August 21, 2008

Filed under: career,Humor,wall of the wierd — hannaherika @ 2:45 am

Time is definitely not on my side right now. Just like how I study some stuff to hack (whoopsies… now you know), I’m also learning how to hack my Time!

Click more if you want to see me doing something CRAZY!

Just right now, do you want to know what I’m really doing at this exact moment? Yes! Time-hacking! While waiting for my Lotus notes to find the email I’m looking for in my archive, I take advantage of this time to make a blog entry!

Time management has been critical for me now. I just want to do so many things but time and my own energy is running out too. Most of you know that I hate sleeping! Yessssss!!! (with 5 Ss!) I mean we just sleep because it’s necessary right… But, sleeping takes 6-8 hours of my precious time… This is the reason why sometimes I want to try sleeping in the Comfort Room.

disclaimer: boss S, if you are reading this this is only “acting”… for blogging purposes only

Now that my Lotus notes is ok, then I must go back to work… That’s the skill of hacking time ladies and gentlemen. 🙂

Until next time!

Music Mood – Because of you (Ne-yo, with lyrics) August 17, 2008

Filed under: music mood — hannaherika @ 9:37 am

Because of you cover by Riaritchie

I have been obsessing with this video for sometime already still I couldn’t get over it. I just wish I could strum the guitar the way she does. Sometimes I’m too lazy to write that I express what I feel through music so here goes…

“Because Of You”

[Verse 1:]
Want to, but I can’t help it
I love the way it feels,
It’s got me stuck between my fantasy and what is real
I need it when I want it, I want it when I don’t
Tell myself I’ll stop everyday, knowin’ that I won’t

I got a problem and I don’t know what to do about it
Even if I did, I don’t know if I would quit but I doubt it
I’m taken by the thought of it, and I know this much is true
Baby, you have become my addiction, I’m so strung out on you
I can barely move but I like it

And it’s all because of you [3X]
And it’s all because…
Never get enough,
She’s the sweetest drug

[Verse 2:]
Think of it every second
I can’t get nothing done,
Only concern is the next time, I’m gonna get me some
Know I should stay away from, cause it’s no good for me
I try and try but my obsession wont let me leave

I got a problem and I don’t know what to do about it
Even if I did, I don’t know if I would quit but I doubt it
I’m taken by the thought of it, and I know this much is true
Baby, you have become my addiction, I’m so strung out on you
I can barely move but I like it

And it’s all because of you (all because of you) [3X]
And it’s all because…
Never get enough,
She’s the sweetest drug

Ain’t no doubt, so strung out [2X]
Over you, over you, over you

Because of you,
And it’s all because of you,
Never get enough
She’s the sweetest drug, she’s the sweetest drug

Invisible Invincibility

Filed under: Uncategorized — hannaherika @ 6:41 am

I was looking back at my past at what I did during my high school and college days and I just can’t help but smile. Those years were rich full of memories and fun activities for me. I remembered in high school, I was dancing the whole time! I have been dancing to almost every event in school… from folk dancing, ballet, interpretative, hiphop and even ballroom!

College days was more of pop and cheerleading for me… I entered a pageant for Ms. JPIA (Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants) and won!!! — but without any video whatsoever… I say regrets to me! I should have captured these moments but I didn’t.

Another enriching memory was when I danced on a competition… solo!!! Man… I wow-ed the judges as far as I know and won… but then again… no documentation there… going back to the days… I just couldn’t help but feel like I don’t want to leave my past…

Now I look ahead… I looked for pictures and videos of my dancecapades and I find nothing, except for some steady after-production pictures that don’t really really mean that much…

sigh… Now, this star quality personality of mine has not had closure yet… I don’t know really for sure but I am honestly feeling that I need to/want to do something to dance again! In the corporate world though… how can you do that?

Now, I am kind-of sort-of apprehensive about something… See, I wanna audition for something big… Like nation-wide coverage exposure or whatever… I want to dance again! So you think you can dance pinoy version anyone!!! gosh, I would die for an audition…

Now I don’t know what Vinz would think about this… He probably knows I am crazy eccentric enough to do all these spontaneous stuff… But then again, I need someone who can also cope up and catch up with my very dynamic personality.

Until then, this is the Dark Candy saying…



The Dark Knowledge August 15, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — hannaherika @ 12:28 am

You cannot please everyone, but I do my best to almost be pleasant at everyone. But sometimes, it’s just too much. Today is business day 11. Meaning it’s the 2nd week of my peak time every month. Some more, I don’t know if I am officially in charge of my current project. But without clarity, there is confusion. I definitely would like my career to step up even one tiny step up. Just a little upgrade would be healthy.

Currently I am a CPA, I am thinking of studying more and I have the following choices:

1. CFA – gnarly title, for 3 years of exams, very hard exams, the economics part challenging for me since I don’t have enough background for this, finance and accounting I can do well, but I know it also involves some stats and quantitative methods and complicated pricing models which is very hard to measure, also talk about actuary functions – very rare but very classe, this title is really so intimidating, very expensive, but highest paid, dwells more on the finance side.

2. CMA – I can pull this through with a little review, more of management side, quantitative methods are involved also, costing some more, analysis and everything, pretty much what I am doing at my office now, and also needs 3 years experience, not so expensive but still many are CMAs now.

3. SAP – cannot say much I just heard that if you are certified you are paid high. One of my concerns is that some IT people who program accounting modules for small businesses tend to know accounting/booking more also than some of accountants. Since when you program you need to know how the document and transaction flow goes and you need to know what the program will do in cases of conflicts in bookings or something, also very expensive

4. IT course – just a simple basic one I guess, among the 4 this is less expensive and accounting + IT could really do good in a career environment also.

Sigh, so many choices… what to pick?


August 12, 2008

Filed under: reflections — hannaherika @ 1:26 am

This is something I just want to share… I just found this in one of my friend Felix’s blog in multiply and it summarizes how I reflected on stuff last night…

If you love someone, ask them for nothing. Don’t hold them back from their destiny. Don’t keep them from going off in search of their own answers. Don’t ask them for commitment. You will know commitment is real when it is something given willingly, and not as something obligatory. Don’t ask them for promises. If you are patient, if you have faith, you will know in your heart when the right time for promises has come.

And when that time arrives, then you will see that you have both lost nothing by setting each other free, and have instead gained a richer, fuller life, a wealth of experiences, and a stronger certainty of your desires.

But should they not return to you, then life hasn’t cheated you because no promises were broken. Your bitterness will not last long, and you will feel thankful and blessed that at the very least, this beautiful soul has colored your life, that knowing them has already made life infinitely more meaningful.

By setting a person free, you run a risk of them not returning. But always remember that you found them beautiful precisely because they were free. People are like sunlight. You can feel their warmth, and their glow, but you can’t hold them in your hand and keep them with you forever. People CHOOSE to stay. But a choice is made more meaningful when it is made despite so many other options. Love has no restrictions and it is through mistakes that sometimes we see the right answer. Because if you love someone, you ask them for nothing and they will come back to you.


Local Gossip

Filed under: Filipino Gossip Girl,Gossip Girl Philippines,Pinoy gossip girl — hannaherika @ 12:14 am

Just an update about the Local Gossip Juice fresh and hot in the Philippines. I read on the Sunday’s newspaper that ABS CBN is planning to make a Pinoy version of Gossip Girl! Now, as we all are aware, pinoy adaptations are quite “ikey-ikey” so, I don’t know if this pinoy adaptation will pull through and turn out nice… Well, what do we know… I am kind of anticipating a local sweatcase on this one…

Here’s the list of probable cast as I have read in the Philippine Star’s August 10, 2008 edition.

Anne Curtis as Blair Waldorf

KC Conception as Serena Van Der Woodsen

Luis Manzano as Chuck Bass

Although I think that Jake Cuenca could fit more into this role. I mean with his bad boy/serious image already. =P

Sam Milby as Nate Archibald

I am not so game also on this one… =P

John Lloyd Cruz as Dan Humphrey

So… What do you think? Comments? Violent Reactions? Speak up and click here 🙂
