    • in 2018 while i was supervising the clearing and demolition of debris in Marawi MAA ( Most Affected Areas ) , the Brigade Commander ( then Col Romeo Brawner ) asked if our company is interested in constructing a sheltered port in the contested WPS area . Back then , the company's exposure on DND / DOTR projects were minimal and while we are desperate need to acquire projects that has 1B capital , going to the WPS is something that we have to seriously consider. So i politely told him that i will
    • Haha the only "hunting" I do is at the meat section of the store.  Some people I know tell me it's a most rewarding experience, but I'm quite happy with eating something I didn't have to chase down and/or fight first.  Also, my teeth don't get on well with buckshot or 7.62 slugs.  😜 On the other thing. if the guv'mint wants to give me a booster shot on top of the one I just had, I say jab me as many times as it takes.  I haven't been out without a mask and that pesky shield since that bug s
    • well, in my case, no one ever got sleazy on me LOL and sometimes, I leave events before things get sleazy what I liked during those days were the after-party coffee drinks, THAT's where I got to know my tonite family, who I stay in touch with even to this day admittedly, i get attracted with the physical, but the attraction has more OOMPH when combined with intellect and the attractions lingers around more when the other party is intellectual   so yeah, I won't be a hypocrite
    • I remember there was an event in Metrowalk(?). This was back when MIRC is still a thing..a guy on MIRC was looking for a party he can go to and so I told him about the said event. I was kinda forced to attend since I sort of invited him.  I met him outside the venue and oh boy was he yummy. Long story short, we dated after the event and he became my boyfriend. And yes, that night bantay sarado ako. No one can approach me.  Cute ko pa naman noon. Hahaha. I fell in love with one guy from
    • ah parties... last Oct 2020 I wanted to do a Zoom party but was too sad to be creative. I'll definitely think of something Zoomy this 2021. The tickets thingy was a necessity that I couldn't not do. I really wanted to mingle with everyone but I had to be at the entrance. That's why I really was happy doing the smaller privater events in hotels, not because of the adulter atmosphere but because it enabled me to be part of the socialization.
    • @SiLvErClAw Wow, I'm surprised to be honest! You better go out often . Maybe after the ECQ, I guess.  Well, have you met anybody interesting in the parties? There must be a lot of women out there! I know, I've been to a couple. Especially the ' clan parties'.   Oh Christ, I relish that thought - it was delicious! Going to a party with a date in a reserved room in a 4 star hotel,  meeting a lot of members - drinking cold San Miguel and flirting with other members, getting contact
    • @Unwritten Oh dear, please talk about Barbeque than venison ☹️ It made my mouth water, I mean Barbeque! I mean! LOL.  
    • Hi Kilroy! @Kilroy Washere Jeeze, you really are a Game Hunter!  And you even know how to cook the damn thing. That's amazing! I can't - just can't Kilroy 😕 Mabantot yung karne e. I assume you'd season it with Mesquite seasoning too.  If it weren't for that, I couldn't handle the smell.     Speaking of the pandemic, I'm starting to feel that the vaccine ain't worth a poop.  Missouri ( The state where I'm living right now) has announced that every kid as young as 2 who w
    • @Sofia Oh I'm as sentimental as you are Sofia! I've met a TON of guys from there! short guys, tall guys, fat guys and skinny guys. I had probably 2 boyfriends from there.    Remember what's it like sometimes when your man would go to the bathroom for a quick squirt and you'd be waiting on him at the table then suddenly you'd be getting a couple of Hellos from some guys and come sit with you for a couple of minutes? If this didn't happen to you, Your Boyfriend must have been watching yo
    • yeah, a lot of people moved on, some of them I still get in touch with in facebook   would you believe I only experience the party life due to MTC, and when those event waned, my interest in partying also waned?   was and always will be a wall flower
    • Hi again. Venison was one of those meats I'd always wanted to try, and when the meat shop near our old place offered farm-raised venison in tapa cuts, I snapped it up.  Took me several tries to get it right, though. Even farm-raised venison was tough with a wild herby flavor.  The marinated bistek was leathery and tasted weird, but the dog loved it.  Try #2 was marinated and tenderized tapa, garlicked up the yingyang with toasted crushed garlic, ala pobre.  Likewise the dog was its big
    • Circa 2007. I used to attend tonight's parties too. Even met my bf outside the bar where we had one of the parties.  Im not sure if i've met any of you in person. Maybe I did. I miss the old members. They make a lot of sense.
    • @SiLvErClAwSorry for the late reply 😏 Back in Tonight ,we sure love the parties. And the people we've known for so long on the board who had passed away and some got married and left Tonight for good.  It's just you, me and a couple of people.  I'm glad you dropped by to see my blog. I've been telling you every time that I would do it and here I am!   
    • Oh, those young does are the best. Low and steady fire and slow and easy roasting for extended time yields the most tender and juiciest meats that you can savor to the very last morsel. 😄  Finger licking and barbeque sauce not even required... 🙂 I'm sure we can find other creative but equally delectable use for the sauce.  😉 LOL!
    • natawa naman ako sa master shifu heheheh   well, for me the other site is an escape and reminiscing     for intellectual discussions, yeah, this has more options
    • hello, NW   yeah, with mainstream media always sensationalizing negatively impacting actions all through out the world, I have to agree   but then again, what we can do as people is to teach the kids how to defend themselves, and not lock them in a bubble   also we all have to learn when to run or stand our ground
    • Hi Silverclaw! I think that Mainstream Media got a lot to do with how most people think around here. It would make you believe that everybody is going to rape, kidnap and murder unless they're constantly supervised every second.  It's safer now that it has ever been but the positive stories wouldn't lead the news.  Free-ranged kids are happier and better adjusted in my opinion.  😏
    • sad, that they realized their mistake too late, and now the girl is set in her ways...   and I thought I was sheltered growing up
    • @SiLvErClAwMaster Shi Fu! How are you doing? What a pleasant surprise! Do you remember that time when I told you I'm done with 'Tonite'? I moved on. I've moved on from playing pewee football and on to the NFL. Which is this place: Manila Stars is the NFL in my humble opinion.   
    • @UnwrittenHello Cool Beans Unwritten!  Venison is an acquired taste. The last time I had one, fresh from the amber waves of gold in Kansas (it's literally amber waves! LOL) that it smelled like piss and shoe leather.  Some men like it a lot - the musky smell of hide and tough meat. Well you wan it well done? And please don't hesitate to splash some Barbeque sauce too. Don't you just made me hungry for a nice juicy steak?

    After a few years as Army Officer with the Engineering Brigade  , i spent a decade working in the BPO Industry.  While I can say that during my 4 year stint in the Army was a life changer , the 11 years in the BPO industry was generally Wild , Exciting and mostly stressful .  On my 11th year ,  i decided that i will have to cut short my BPO adventures and started working for a company that shows a promising prospect in the mining and construction industry . 

    In 2012 i was primarily station in Camarines Norte working as Admin Staff for Gold Mining Project , when there were  issues about  production discrepancies I was delegated to conduct an ad hoc performance and production evaluation . From an Admin Staff,  I was Promoted to Process Engineer overnight . 11 months after I was hired I was the  Process Implementation MAnager for the site and my Roller Coaster Career started  from that point on.

    One of the good things about my work is that i travel a lot most of the time . Over the span of 10 years i have visited most of Southern Luzon, the Entirety of Northern Mindanao , most of the Islands of Tawi Tawi, about 3/4 of ARMM and the southern part of Palawan.  I also stayed at the contested Waters of West Philippine Sea since i was stationed at Pagasa Island for about 10 month 

    During the height of PAndeminc , despite the travel restrictions and ever changing Travel Guidelines , i was one of the few people in our company that was given special clearances to travel to active project sites . The only Quarantine that i experience was being confine to a One Star hotel at Tagbiliran Bohol for 1 one night , just so that i complied the provincial quarantine guidelines . While  I am a firm believer about the dangers and how fatal Covid 19 presents I was really sure that i will not succumb to that disease . 

    Because of the limited deployment of competent technical personnel , most of the site and department managerial functions were temporarily assigned to me by default . this method while practical and efficient,  has slowly develop a mental strain on my part  . im developing work insomnia , i have to drink significant amount of alcohol in order for me to have an 8 hour sleep and despite of training capable subordinates , i cant shake the feeling that somewhere in the work process , things will go awry . i have to exert extra effort just to be focus.  

    from my own perspective , everything is not good enough , while i encourage my immediate subordinates to be creative and Innovative , i frown on their inefficient and untimely output . Maybe im just saturated with work or maybe i have not noticed that my added responsibility has changed my outlook without me noticing it . Im slowly becoming to a boss that i always avoided . 

    can work really change a person ? or im just not used to having this amount of authority that want to impress my superiors rather than earning the respect of my subordinates and peers . 









  2. One fine Saturday afternoon, Dot took Birdie out for a an hour’s walk when a middle aged couple were walking at the opposite direction. They waved at her and said  “ Hi, Come here, we want to talk to you”. So Dot walked across the street to meet them and they had a light conversation with her.

    “What’s your name?” they asked.

    “My name is Dot and this is my dog Birdie”, She replied curtly and shyly while Birdie kept tugging his leash.

    “I’m Ben and this my wife Jerry, is it okay if we invite you to sit with us at our front porch?” the Husband asked.

    “ Sure thing! “ Dot replied and walked with the couple back to their house.

    The couple only lived a few blocks from where I live and it was a short sunny trail towards their humble abode. Dot kept Birdie next to her as she sat on straw chair and the husband was sitting across her while the wife went inside to prepare some refreshments. He started ‘interviewing’ Dot.

    “ So, where’re you from?”.

    “ The Philippine Islands”.

    “ Oh We’re from Washington originally and we love filipino food!”.

    “ Oh, Yeah? Which one?”

    “ I think its pansh*t and pulabog”.

    “ You mean Pansit and Palabok – they’re good!”. Dot giggled a bit and the wife came out and brought a tray of ice cold tea.

    “ By the way , Dot, do you know our daughter Lena?”

    “ Yes, I know her, we ride the school bus together, isn’t she a Junior this fall?

    “ Yes she is. We’d like to ask you something and I hope you wouldn’t mind.”

    “ What is it?”. Dot asked while sipping her drink.

    “ We’d like if you can hang out with her for awhile, like talking to her and ,you know be friends with her”.

    “ I don’t know about that sir because she’s a little older than me”. Dot replied.

    “ She’s an okay kid but she doesn’t have friends, We’re worried that she might miss out her chance having friends in highschool”. Jerry exclaimed.

    “ Where’s Lena?” Dot asked.

    “ She’s at the Animal Shelter, taking care of critters and cats – cleaning their sand box all day”.

    “ Oh okay”

    “ What do you think, Dot, would you help us then?”.

    “I’ll be glad to help you Mr. Ben and Jerry, I’ll tell mom about it and if she says yes- I’ll hang out with Lena!” Dot replied.

    After a couple of minutes, Dot said goodbye to Ben and Jerry and walked on the trail towards our house.

    When I cam home after picking up some groceries from Walmart, Dot was excited about the ‘grown-ups’ she’d met and also about their daughter named Lena.

    Lena. I remember that kid.

    She couldn’t even looked straight ahead with her hair all over her face. She’s frail and awkward most of the time – I guess I haven’t met a kid who isn’t.

    To be honest – I got worried when Lena’s parents are ‘desperate’ for their kid to have a friend or maybe a boyfriend and I think it wouldn’t hurt Dot if she would.

    The next day, Dot walked to Ben and Jerry’s home and Lena was there. Lena seemed pleasant enough to greet her and waved her parents goodbye as they looked on quite happy and contented.

    Dot told Lena that they’d go for a walk together and she said she’s fine with that so they did.

    It turns out that Lena – after walking farther and farther away from home with Dot – is starting to show her true colors.

    Lena didn’t want to have anything to do with Dot – she only want to be left alone and read her gothic romances. Dot was trying to be sociable enough as they went on their stroll but all Lena would answer is one or two syllables if she could.

    After an hour of walking, Dot found an excuse to end the awkward situation and walked back home.

     I was in the kitchen fixing dinner and she told me that she’s exhausted.  Dot even concluded that she’s not going to be friends with Lena because she seems to be there at her parent’s behest not because she wanted to have anything to do with Dot at all.

    Lena’s parents were attempting a last minute correction with her issues that should be addressed years ago. They’ve protected their daughter so well that she never have the opportunity to be properly socialized.

    Perhaps fearing that their daughter that she wouldn’t have a family of her own, they now sought to socialize Lena directly than letting her develop her life by herself

    Dot decided not to talk to Lena anymore nor to her parents but she occasionally waves at them hello when they’d be walking across the street. They would smile and wave back and went on their way.
