Thursday mornings, we hold our weekly internal and client quality calibration, to see if everyone’s on the same page insofar as evaluating quality is concerned. Last Thursday, though, was extra interesting. We went above and beyond office calibration. There was an impromptu bull session that left me, and I believe the rest of us newbies, breathless. It was exhilirating, passionate. However, I find it just a tad bit improper to air out the dirty laundry where people can see them. I guess I should be concerned, because for all intents and purposes, at least for the remainder of my QA time, this is my team, too, and their concerns will ultimately be my concern, as well. I just wished it didn’t have to be like that. A little propriety wouldn’t have hurt either.


Master Luvin, congratulations! Swerte ng mga magiging agents mo. Master agad nakuha nila. Hahaha.

Krazee, (sabi ni Ayeen) congratulations! Show them what a walking KB can do on operations!

Sayang lang, we could’ve all been friends, too.

Bad Ass

I had the strangest, bad ass dream this morning. I dreamt of my colleagues. First, there was my trainer, who I am totally crushing on, and we were lying on the floor, talking about office matters, our heads next to each other. And then he said everything’s gonna be okay, and he went to sleep right beside me, and I felt like I had no choice but to kiss his hair and put my arms around him. Then, my dreamscape shifted to a house, and the QA team was there. And everyone was drinking, and making merry. I approached Jonalyn, the girl on the left, and told her she needed to go sleep (she was uber drunk), and she got super angry and told me that they never sleep and when would I get that in my little head. Then we got into an argument, and Luv (our Mistress Assesor), came to intervene. Ooopsie, no picture of Luv anywhere in my phone. We had the strangest conversation. She said she overheard the guards talking about me, that I said something against them, so on and so forth. Even in my dream, I didn’t remember anything of that sort.


Tapos I woke to find all the screen panels were already installed in my room. The carpenter must have seen me sleeping semi nude. Hahaha. Poor guy.

Yey! We finally got our email access in the office. Feeling namin, totoong QA na kami, after one month of super boredom. Literally, we had nothing to do the whole month of February.

Next stop, Nexus access.

My first official day as Quality Analyst. We were supposed to have been given a lighter work load for our learning curve. I guess that curve just flattened out a lot faster than we thought. We were given the same number of roster, as opposed to the original plan na mas konti sa amin ni Ayeen, as the tenured QA’s. O ‘di ba, bongga. And, in retrospect, as Ayeen and I were sitting right outside the 7-11, it hit us how easy the job is. With proper time management, daming araw na pwedeng ileave.

And I got booted to the evening shift, too. Which is okay, kaso medyo dyahe sa new house. And to top it all, it rained. What was freaky about it was that after two streets from the house, the streets were bone dry. Eto pa masama, I got super uber mega drenched. The umbrella that I had was practically useless. When I got to the office, I had to take my shoes and socks off, tiptoeing on the carpet barefoot. Dedma sa mga big bosses. I had to borrow Ayeen’s jacket, so I can take my polo off. So I was naked under the jacket and it was scratchy as hell. I had Ayeen text a few of our cluster-mates to bring me a pair of slippers and a dry shirt. Thankfully, nagdala naman si Janice ng violet na shirt and a pair of fancy slippers. However, despite their fanciness, nagmukha akong galing sa slumber party.

Ibang panahon ‘to kinuhanan, but that’s Ayeen. We got promoted the same time, and we are inseparable at the moment. In fact, she promised to get me packed lunch tomorrow night. We’ll see.

I thought by the time my shift ends, tuyo na rin ‘ung stuff ko. I was wrong. So very wrong. Hanggang umuwi ako ng bahay, I still had soggy shoes. Yey for wet socks!

Hello pond!

I’ve never really done a personal blog before. I don’t know how to start.


Being newly promoted, my boss decided it would do me good to join an offsite big boss meeting in Batangas. I thought it would be extremely boring, and would be all about business. Fortunately, the whole management team proved me wrong.

The venue they picked was extremely beautiful. Club Balai Isabel, Talisay, Batangas. The whole resort sits right beside the Taal Lake, and you can see the volcano from the villa where I, my boss Marcie, Josh the Trainer, and some other people were staying. When we came to the place, we were sent to the conference area and spent the next four or five hours there. So much brain activity going on. Truly, you get to see why managers are managers. They knew what they wanted and how to get there. Special kudos to Umesh Vyas, who had a way of looking at you and make you feel like your heart is in your eyes where he can read all the things it beats for.

After the whole gruesome brain draining meeting, there were beer cans overflowing and videoke galore, which I turned down and just opted to sleep. So I headed back to our villa, with Marcie and Josh, took a shower, and called it a night.

Iba rin talaga ang hangin sa probinsiya. Very cold, especially in the mornings. And how I toured the place, too, after the sumptuous buffet breakfast.

That’s my boss and Josh and me.


I don’t even know why I’m blogging about this. Not like anyone would be interested. Maybe it’s just a way for me to put up pictures. Haha.
