oo nga. sa trabaho ko dati, pag dumadating na ang buwang ito, naghihigpit na ng sinturon at alam naming lahat papalapit na ang 'peligro de agosto' - comes the time for belt tightening measures. pero parang hindi lang nitong buwang 'to ako nagtipid, nitong buong taon 'ata e. ang dami (as in ang dami) kong pinalagpas na chance na gumala. paano, nag-a-anticipate na ako ng mga buwang walang trabaho ergo walang sweldo ergo walang panggasta.
but as a month-ender, me and kwin will be out to watch a movie. siyempre pa, at ano bang pwedeng pang-kilig na sine nitong mga panahong 'to? no other but a kc movie, of course. hehe...

can't help it. i'm a phelps fan!
just couldn't breathe every time he competes. i really do so want him to get those 8 golds. but if he doesn't, i'm still a big fan.
not a swimmer myself, but i love watching the olympic swimming competitions. i have to hold my breath in those seconds before they hit the buzzer. just last summer, i have tried to learn how to swim, making the most use of the swimming pool at our staffhouse. especially that i have already planned on leaving. the good news there is that i was at last able to float. i've been trying for the longest time to do this. just was so scared of the waters for so long. this time i was able to conquer that fear. and all thanks to camille who had to bear with me patiently, teaching me how to breathe and move my legs. i'm not good though. it's enough for me that i was at last able to float! hahaha...but phelps is another story. he's just awesome.
go, phelps, go. go for eight!

stayed up late just to be able to watch the opening of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
how i wish i was there. been dreaming since last year to be able to set foot on beijing for the olympic games. and with it being hosted in china, i thought if i could just save up enough money then maybe i can go there along with some family or friends. that dream never happened. so just had to content myself with watching on television as the opening unfolds.
it was such a magnificent opening night. the chinese really know how to give a show. it was so spectacular. i oohed and ahhhed along with so many of my companions. truly a sight to behold.
