September Madness

The First of September means the end of something and the beginning of another.

The first of two steps towards the end of a journey happens on the Fourth.

The Sixth brings me to my 25th.

The Fifteenth is 100 before 12.25.

09.09.09 09:09:09.

The second of those two steps occurs on the Twenty-first.

The Twenty-second is 100 before 2010.

I should have at least 8 by the Twenty-fifth.

Social Networking Everywhere

Blogger <--> Multiply <--> Facebook <--> Twitter cross-posting!? Why not?

...I don't want to break my streak of posting at least one article per month, so here it is.

Am I too busy that I couldn't take a break and write something here? Or was there just nothing for me to write about all month long? Maybe the latter... Nadal lost at Roland Garros and opted not to play at SW19, my project cutover was postponed to July thus prevented me from watching the Turkish Grand Prix live, and yeah, I was glad that Lakers won their 15th NBA championship trophy but I chose to post updates through my facebook and twitter accounts. Even the photos of my "summer escapades" with my relatives, elementary and college friends - they are all uploaded either in friendster or facebook.

But I miss multiply... So here it is. June 2009, you can officially end now. Hehe.


PS: I just might as well promote my twitter account, follow me at

PPS: RIP to the 216 passengers and 12 crew members of Air France Flight 447, 76 people in Harmony Gold's Mine in South Africa, 52 people in combat in the Amazon Rainforest, Neda and other Iranians, David Carradine, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson - who all died this month.

PPPS: Happy birthday to all June celebrants and congratulations to all June brides and grooms.

Another Year Hence*

*In reference to A Year Hence

My second year at (or with) HP is way way better than my first one. Why?

1. I was pulled out of QR and got engaged in an RTCIS project. No offense to QR haha.
2. From being on Asia shift previously, I am now on EMEA (Europe/Mideast/Africa) - which means I can now sleep late and wake up late - and get paid extra for that. Bwahahahaha.
3. I got to travel outside of the Philippines - I have been to Istanbul/Gebze (and Singapore/Dubai on the side) - TWICE! One more coming up. Bwehehehehe.
4. I was part of the SAP-ADSI INGXAKI ESCAPE Committee which organized the September 2008 team building offsite at Chateau Royale in Tagaytay/Nasugbu - as co-head of Logistics.
5. I co-managed the June 2008 - Caliraya Summer Escapade for the PD team. Thanks to the whole PD Events!

...and many more.

Maybe these are the reasons why I still enjoy being with the same group of people I have been with for the past couple of years - despite the recent economic crisis and ludicrous contingency measures our senior management is currently implementing.

Now I realize, I am still contented after all. Good for me.


I am looking forward to a better and definitely more AWESOME third year in (or with) HP. I will surely love to CZECH that out!

Hmmm... Now I know why/how he injured his back even though he did not play any competitive match since losing (and crying) last February 1.


Roger Federer says girlfriend is pregnant

BASEL, Switzerland (AP)—Roger Federer is going to be a father.

The second-ranked Swiss tennis player says on his Web site that girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

Federer says: “This is a dream come true for us. We love children and we are looking forward to being parents for the first time. Mirka is feeling great and everything is going well.”

The 13-time Grand Slam champion is in Indian Wells, Calif., for the Masters tournament, which starts Thursday. He also says his injured back is “feeling better.”


Dear Fans

I arrived in Indian Wells earlier this week and I am eager to get back out on court. My back is

feeling much better and I am ready to go.

I also have some really awesome news to share with all of you: Mirka and I are excited to let you know that we will be parents this summer! Mirka is pregnant and we are so happy to be starting a family together. This is a dream come true for us. We love children and we are looking forward to being parents for the first time. Mirka is feeling great and everything is going well.

Speak soon and thanks for all your continued support!



Retirement, anyone?

Maybe, if he wants to be a full-time dad...

Well, anyway, congrats Rodge!
