WRS – 001

Stop the drama! And so I was texted. This, coming from a friend who got tired of listening to all my whining about work related stress.

And I say, “don’t blame me”. Yet, who do we blame instead? Problems don’t just come out of nowhere. It comes from a series of actions made by one or a group of people. If you’re in a bad place at a bad time, you attract the negative forces. If you’re feeling lucky, happy, or gay the more chances of attracting problems. The wheel of life turns and you can’t be on the up-side forever. Unfortunately, since life is unfair, when your feeling unlucky, gloomy, or plain old sad, don’t expect the wheel to turn around quickly. Problems are like ants looking for a piece of leftover. They will hunt you down until nothing is left of you. The only way for it to stop is either you get consumed by the ants or somebody picks you up. Now, where you are thrown to in another story.

Civil Service Eligibilibity without taking the exam


The career service examination is not the be-all and end-all of acquiring civil service eligibility. Do you know that the CSC also grants eligibilities other than the Career Service Professional and Sub-Professional eligibilities? You can acquire a civil service eligibility even without taking the Career Service Examination. The CSC for some time now has been granting eight (8) different eligibilities under special laws to qualified individuals. You may be qualified for the grant of any of these eligibilities.

* Bar/Board Eligibility (RA1080)

* Honor Graduate Eligibility (PD907)

* Scientific and Technological Specialist Eligibility (PD 997)

* Electronic Data Processing Specialist Eligibility (PD 1408/CSC Res. 90-083)

* Barangay Official Eligibility (RA 7160/CSC Resolution No. 933666/943635)

* Barangay Nutrition Scholar Eligibility (PD1569)

* Barangay Health Worker Eligibility (RA7883)

* Skills Eligibility (CSC MC 11, s. 1996, as amended; CSC Res. 072244/CSC MC 3, s. 2008)

* Veteran Preference Rating (EO 790)

o Revised Guidelines in the Acceptance and Processing of Applications for Veteran Preference Rating (VPR)

o Veterans Preference Grantees Advisory

* Others

I stumbled upon those web pages since one of my colleagues recently got her civil service eligibility and I checked her name from the civil service website. Planning to get certified myself, I checked the procedures on how to get certified. Luckily, I qualified under one of the exemptions, PD 907. So to all students who graduated with honors, take advantage of this exemption.

That’s it for now…

I’ll keep you guys updated after I finish my application


Dating Secret Exposed: Why Nice Guys Finish Last A repost from my old Multiply Site.

Are you a nice guy who has always wondered why the cocky guy — the one who barely appears interested in the girl — is usually the one who gets the girl?
Have you suffered from hearing the words, “You’re a really nice guy, but I only like you as a friend,” from a woman who you would do (or may, in fact, have already done) just about anything and everything for — only to turn around and watch her date (or even chase) a guy who treats her like she’s nothing special? And are you stumped wondering why she would date a guy who treats her like that when she could have you who would treat her like a princess and give her everything she wants? Well, you better brace yourself because I’m going to tell you a couple of secrets that you might not want to hear.
First, “nice” equates with boring and predictable. Look up “nice” in the dictionary and you find: pleasant; agreeable; satisfactory. In other words, average — not exceptional, not exciting, and not sexy.I’ll bet you’ve never heard a woman say she didn’t want to date a guy because he was too confident, too passionate, or too exciting — have you? But, I’ll bet you have heard women say things like, “He’s such a nice guy. He’s so sweet and he’s always there for me, but I only like him as a friend.” Or, “He’s such a good guy — kind, thoughtful, generous, honest, loyal — but there’s no chemistry. He just doesn’t turn me on.” Sadly, I hear it all the time. The fact is, Mr. Nice Guy, you cannot bore a woman into feeling attracted to you or into wanting to date you. And as obvious as that sounds, if you are one of those guys I described that is exactly what you are trying to do. And it won’t work.

Please understand that I am not suggesting that you mistreat women or disrespect them in any way.

To illustrate what I mean: The answer to the question, “Why does the guy who doesn’t appear to care as much about the girl get the girl?” is simple: The nice guy cares too much, too soon. He has made the woman too important and too valuable and it shows in everything he says and does. He is too available, too eager to please, too accommodating, and he gives too much — all without getting anything in return. By doing so, he has made himself appear desperate, insecure, needy of this woman’s attention, affection, and approval — and he has stripped himself of any value in her eyes. After all, if he’s already doing and giving everything, without her doing or giving anything – why would she value him? She won’t. She is not going to value him any more than he values himself. What she is going to do is look for someone else, someone who she perceives as being more worthy, more confident, and more valuable.
It works like this:

Once you need something, or you want it too badly, you forfeit your strength and lose all power of negotiation. You are in a position of weakness and you are perceived as weak. Someone (or something) else is in control of you, the situation, and it’s outcome. Men in this situation appear to be anything but confident, strong, and exciting. More, they are perceived as being unworthy and as lacking value.

Translation: Things that are easily acquired, obtained, or maintained, without any effort or sacrifice, lack value… it’s human nature.

The secret to why the cocky guy wins with women, over the nice guy, is that he is perceived as being a stronger, more confident guy with more value. How? He never invests everything — his entire being, ego, and self-worth in what one woman’s response or reaction to him is. He doesn’t gush with compliments; he isn’t always available; he doesn’t give too much; and he knows he isn’t going to die if a woman says “no” to him. More, his attitude is, yeah, I’d like to go out with you, but if I can’t, that’s OK — I’m a busy guy, with exciting things going on, and lots of other options.

The Quest for the Ultimate Halo Halo (Super Bowl)

And I always ask my sister that we have halo-halo almost each time I see her.

I can’t remember what we did this day, but obviously I was able to drag her all the way to Super Bowl.

The verdict:

1. Super Bowl Halo-Halo w/One Scoop of Ice Cream 120.00

Texture of the ice was a bit rough. Sweetness is ok. Ill just make it short. Just a Plain Expensive Halo-halo. Nothing really special about.

2.Mango Sago 80.00

Its Ice Mixed With Mango and a few Sago. My sister liked it, however I felt it was too “Malabnaw”. I was expecting it would be a bit creamy like the halo halo.


Tastes like the phased out mango ice craze from jollibee. Just add Sago.

What? Spiderman Knows how to speak Japanese? (Universal Studios Japan)

So here I am doing the universal symbol of peace just below a big globe with lots of water sprinklers around. Part of the privilege we got while working in Japan is we get to go to Universal Studios for free 😀

While some of my annoying YM buddies keep on advertising their plan to go to somewhere in Baguio, I was busy packing up to my first roadtrip in Japan. (Oh yes I have to pack my passport :D).  I still wonder why you keep on sending me messages yet you don’t plan to invite me. Talk about sarcasm here.

Our office is  in Osaka City which a few train ride away to universal Studios. Travel time I think, is about 1.5 hours. Plus you need to transfer to different train cabs along the way. Special thanks to Ms. Jamie here for she’s the only one who can fluently speak Japanese within the team. Arigatou Gozaimashita!

Just like typical Foreigners, here’s our pic before boarding the train to Universal Studios. Yes, all the trains that goes to USJ is fully decorated like the one you see on the pic.

This one is dedicated to my partner tal. Yes dear, we were supposed to post like gay people here. My stance above is the most gay stance I can ever make. Im not sure what’s on the back ground but its definitely for the little girl’s bubbly hearts.

All the rides are really great! Unfortunately you need to wait for at least 45 minutes before you ride any of their attractions. Really hard to explain the rides individually but all of them are really fascinating. Too bad it rained later in the afternoon  so some of the rides need to be closed and  there were no fireworks that night.

Still it was a great experience for me.

Japan Day One!

When I was I kid, I always wanted to go to Japan and Visit Daimos and Voltes 5. And then when I reached my elementary days, it was a time of grave realization. (If you’re a kid, don’t read further than this.) Santa Claus does not exist and so is Daimos and Voltes 5. Fortunately, there are still other nice things about Japan like sushi, ramen and of course, the very talented MariaO. (Again I warned that kids should be reading beyond the first warning)

So here’s my first day of Arrival in Osaka City Japan!

We were welcomed by Tomoo Matsuno, president of TOP-DENSHI corporation and the rest of the SYSTEM team.

I can still remember this day. And If only I opened my Eyes in this pic 😀
