BC like a B

Whew!! I had a very busy and tiring weekend last week… while some are looking forward to it to unwind and get some rest... well I had an occupied one…a trip from East to North…

Saturday – Wake up 5am... Went to TGPM, Antipolo with my church colleagues in preparation to our 2 major events this summer – Vacation Bible Experience and the Summer Kid's Camp. This was a comforting experience for me - spiritually. I got to escape from the hassle of work and the city… was able to ponder… and spend time with myself and the Lord…

Though the experience was awesome... the trip was drawn out and tiring...

Sunday – Wake up 6am... Went to Marilao, Bulacan to attend the briefing in Deca Homes and do the nitty gritty of the moving in procedure. Girl, this was really exhausting… Briefing ended at 12pm, which means we are starving to death for food and office is closed for lunch… but first things first... need to feed my stomach before I can feed my mind in planning what to do next… we ate our lunch and proceed to checking the units and processing our papers... we end up at 3:30pm to be exact... I was really uneasy at this time coz I’m very very late for the 3pm ministry in Bread... I have no choice but to text Teacher Rose and tell her I couldn’t make it… We leave Marilao at 4pm and reach QC by 5:30pm… im physically and emotionally drained mainly because of the commitment in Bread that I was not able to make…

Single and Gay


Where in the world do people get the idea that single peeps are miserable? That you need someone who understands and loves you to make you a complete person… 

Well if getting married is the true essence of life and the secret formula to happiness, I wonder why there are growing numbers of broken families… why there are husbands cheating on their wives and vice versa… why divorce/separation is gradually accepted by our society… And surely there’s a lot I missed to mention - problems that married people exclusively deals with.

One thing I know, it’s not getting married that will make you live happily ever after just like how fairy tales end it…Happiness comes from within… Starts from you and me... You can be happy with or without a partner… It all boils down as to how you appreciate yourself…

So the next time your married friends ask you, “What’s wrong with you, why are you still single?” just throw the question back to him, “What’s wrong with you, why did you marry?” I bet its gonna be worth the try… lol

Funny UST scandal virus hits me… :(

Feb 18, “Funny UST scandal” virus attacks… Well believe me it’s not funny… What the virus did was automatically sends the users who I’m chatting with a YM message saying, “Buksan mo ito nakakatawa” with Funny UST scandal.avi.exe attachment. Then changed my YM status to “sino ang may gusto ng scandal… blah blah blah nye nye nye” And the moment the user opens the attachment, he will also experience the same. It was really embarrassing, since all Exist employees can see your new status, how much more if it’s your client who pings you and then the virus hits. So I decided not to use my YM before it spreads.

Unfortunately, Evan a friend of mine, already opened the attachment, and both of us were mucked up. I killed the virus by following this thread:

http://www.pcx.com.ph/forum/display_topic_threads.asp?ForumID=3&TopicID=28487&PagePosition=1

However, some issues still persists, like after reinstalling YM application, everytime my computer restarts I can’t use my YM anymore, unless I reinstall it again. Finally we killed the virus using the Noob killer, thanks to Agila’s advice. However again, now we cannot see the YM messages that we sent as well as the ones that we are receiving. We can see that the other user is typing a message but we cannot see his message to us. Hmmmm… Im not sure if this was some effect of the registry items that we deleted as we followed the thread above.

Also after installing Kaspersky in my machine, I noticed that it literally hangs all the application… it’s like my machine was in coma. So I disabled all the application that exhausts it. So I could at least use my machine and continue with my testing.

Finally to repair it, we reinstalled the operating system.. After less than an hour of setting up… Whoala it was fixed!

As to how I got the virus, some discussion thread says that it can be passed through USB which was also infected… makes sense… cause after scanning my USB I saw the culprit and now he’s a dead meat!
