To Enjoy A Vacation  

Posted by soreal

Any vacation can turn into a nightmare for a huge archive of reasons. I have asked a few of my friends so I will know what will top the chart. Well it seems that the lack of planning and preparation got majority of the vote. A little spontaneity is never bad but let’s face it; there are certain occasions that just require some degree of preparation. Part of the whole preparation stage is when you make the hotel reservations. This is not something you want to skip out, especially if you’re on your way to honeymoon. If you’re a businessman, you don’t want to go on an important trip abroad to meet potential clients and not have your accommodation all set, right?

Choosing from a number of fine hotels and motels can be a difficult task. You don’t want to end up picking the wrong one; it could ruin the entire reason for your travel. So you check on hotel discounts and promos that could help you arrive at a decision. But more importantly; you ask yourself several questions. Is the location convenient for what I intend to do? What type of service do they offer? Do they allow pets inside? Which one will give me the best value for my money? The answer will depend on your priorities and as you crash out the hotel that doesn’t meet your needs; you will be left with no less than the most appropriate choice. This is now what’s called the elimination process; very helpful indecision-making.

So wherever your desire takes you, no matter what time of the year and whoever you plan to be with at that time; make sure you’ve covered enough of the basics so you can enjoy the moment fully. Plan that long overdue trip with your family and choose from a wide selection of vacation packages. Why? Because you deserve it.

Ratatouille Moment  

Posted by soreal

Let me say right ahead that I find the idea of rats or any other rodents in the kitchen very disgusting but Ratatouille made it look oh so cute. What struck me is Anton Ego’s final review; it stirred something deep inside me so I want to share it.

Anton Ego: “In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations, the new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new, an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau's famous motto: Anyone can cook. But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere. It is difficult to imagine more humble origins than those of the genius now cooking at Gusteau's, who is, in this critic's opinion, nothing less than the finest chef in France. I will be returning to Gusteau's soon, hungry for more.”

A friend asked, "So A, why do you use Soreal in you blog?" Figured that since I kept being asked and I really hate giving the same answer over and over again; it would be brilliant to just write about it.
Of course as most of you have already cracked, it's not my real name, it's not even my nick. This blog is me, though it reveals but a tiny part of the whole complex me, it’s all as real as it gets. Another reason is that Soreal is an anagram of my name; Alrose. Yes, it is a combination of my parents’ names and judging from experience this is where you try to guess what their names are hehe My friends call me A, R, A.R, Al. Some call me Rose but I don’t like it coz ever since the Titanic movie, I have gotten a lot of. “Where’s Jack?” (as if) There is also another name that my aunts still so fondly call me even though I have made it clear to them that it embarrasses me; they call me “Baleleng”. We all have silly pet names that family members use but it should only be within the family, right? Hahai, I have several Baleleng moments in public that I don’t want repeated, thank you.

Love Coupons  

Posted by soreal

Have you ever tried giving your guy or your girl coupons? I’m not talking about discount coupons but love coupons. You can let your imagination just run wild with whatever you want to write. From “30 minute kiss” to “video rental of your choice”. This is just one of the many ways to keep a relationship exciting no matter how long couple’s have been together. I agree with Will Smith when he said that, “go fly a kite together or dance barefoot in the rain together”. Couples have to agree on keeping things interesting because relationships can get old and boring if you allow it. I made some love coupons and gave them to dada. At first he was perplexed as to what those were for. When I explained how it works he flipped! Well if you receive coupons that will practically let you do whatever you want at any given moment, would you not flip as well? hehe Now I can’t help but wonder what coupon his going to use next time. ^_^

Typing Tag

Got this tag from wena!

40 words


OMG, this is really embarrassing! I repeated this 5 times and I'm always constant with the 40 words hehe well I don't really care if I don't touch type hmp! I just probably need to accept that like swimming, I'm never gonna learn it.

I just have to pass this on to my blogger friends and hope one of them types slower than me hehe andycharry, chicshopaholic, eric, king, anino, tessa and tambay.


Home Is Where The Heart Is  

Posted by soreal

Don’t you ever just want to be somewhere else, with someone, and doing whatever instead of where you are now? I don’t want to be working now but I am. I was chatting with wena earlier because we share the same sentiments, she would rather go home she said. I asked her where home is; only to realize it’s very insensitive of me. She said her mom was her home but because her mom passed away last December, she’s practically homeless now. I should be constantly cheering her up not add to her sadness. I wish we could both go back to when it was all about our “laags” together. Like when we went to Kawasan Falls right after my shift and I didn’t bring any clothes with me coz it was not planned. We were so tired that we just slept in the bus on the way home..and oh, coz my undergarments were wet, I went home without wearing any hahaha I miss the good times! So where is home for me? Well, home is where dada is. ^_^

Decisions, Decisions  

Posted by soreal

I have not written any recent posts because I've been really busy with everything and nothing altogether. Am I even making sense? There are days when I want to do so many stuff it overwhelms me and I just end up not doing anything at all coz I can't make up my mind which one to do first. (sigh) I admit this has always been my problem. Is there a book out there that talks about effective shortcuts to being decisive? Even choosing which black shoes to wear for work is a battle.
It's daunting to make up your mind or decide on something and take full accountability for it. I so envy people who can be so decided and committed about something that they actually follow through. For me, the more I think, the more difficult it is to finally get to a decision. Maybe that explains why I'm a moment to moment person and that I do almost everything out of impulse. At least that way if I'm wrong then I can say, "Well I didn't really think about it" rather than still be wrong after all the painful thinking.
Uhhmm, I'm not at all THAT bad, it's just that this whole decision-making crap gets to my nerves. For the record, I did make a few right choices you know; some I gave much thought about and some just out of spontaneity. My working in Cebu for instance, this has been I think one of the best decisions I've made so far. It was also a spur of the moment decision; I just jumped right at it without any care of what's gonna happen. That was 2 years ago and I can't help but wonder; as we get older, do we take more risks because we got more insurance or do we make more calculated actions because we can't afford the risk? (ggrrrrr! I should just go on a retail therapy)

Circle of Friends  

Posted by soreal

Got this meme from Wena; thanks so much sis …

Anger is only one letter short of danger
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
He, who loses money, loses much;
He, who loses a friend, loses much more;
He, who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others
You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.
Friends, you and me…
You brought another friend…
And then there were 3…
We started our group…Our circle of friends…And like that circle…
There is no beginning or end…
Yesterday is history.Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift.

So now, let’s see how many circle’s of friends we can make by simply adding your link on this Friendship Meme! 1-Catsy Carpe Diem , 2- Catsy Download s, 3-Out of the Blue , 4- A Day to Savor and Relish 5- A Piece of Idea 6- Write Shy 7- Stupid Wise 8- - Teacher’s Corner 11- Abby of Mom and the City 12- My Views On My So Called Life / 13 – A Reality Bite 14-Life Is A Journey 15 - My Pink Shoelace 16 itsohsoreallife

Perfect Post-Valentines...  

Posted by soreal

Since I already got that Valentine nightmare out of my system, I want to tell you about the best post-valentine's date. Dada surprised me when he got home with a bouquet of the loveliest pink roses I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Earlier in the day we had another argument coz I asked my best guy buddy Mik out for breakfast and well maybe for a little beer (yuck) coz I was depressed; when all the while he thought we will be spending post valentine together. Well I only wanted a guy’s unbiased opinion about what happened the day before, besides it wasn’t going to interfere with whatever he got planned since he wouldn’t be home till late in the afternoon. I was tired, I didn’t want to cause anymore agitation so I gave Mik a rain check on the breakfast.
This is where we can fast-forward to when I got the lovely, pink roses hehe Let me tell you guys a secret, I’m such a sucker for flowers and chocolates and every itsy, bitsy display of affection. I didn’t go all gaga when I got the flowers though; I acted cool haha but kinikilig ako inside. Dada was very charming the whole time (he always is), especially when we got to Casa Verde for dinner. The food was great, the ambiance was amazing but not the place for a lap dance hehe Hmmm that moment was perfect and I was reminded of why I love the guy I was having dinner with. So what if Valentines didn’t turn out the way I planned it? We always paint the town red whenever we’re together and any day is as good as any for a little private striptease ^_^

Not So Happy Valentines  

Posted by soreal

So you all must be waiting for me to spill the beans now. Last valentines, I wanted to do a striptease for dada uh-hu wicked I know. Got everything ready, the kinky outfit, the music, even got the moves ready. But it didn’t happen at all. Well let’s just say that valentines this year was not what I have hoped for. I have been waiting for that moment since after Christmas and well I guess it’s because I got my hopes so high up (sigh). The surprise worked out perfectly in my head but not in real life. Sad, it got me really upset. That’s why it took too long to write about it. I didn’t want to write while I’m all furious, so I waited till I’ve at least simmered down. I was asleep wearing my pink pajama when he came. He’s in the habit of checking my phone and when he did he also saw the snapshots of the kinky outfit that I did earlier in the day (evil eye). Urgh! What a bummer, I don’t want to do it anymore knowing that he knows what’s coming. So yeah for the record, it turned out bad, poor me! I hope your valentines went better than mine^_-

For You

Me & Dada

Just want to post our recent pix here for everyone to see. Taken yesterday morning when dada fetched me from work^_^

Tis The Day Before The Big Day  

Posted by soreal

So where do I start? Well 1st of all I want to say I deserve to be punished for being lazy the past few days. I think my body is just trying to catch up to all the sleepless nights. Once I hit the sack there is no waking me up till 7 in the PM coz I gotta work at 9pm. Sometimes I even make up excuses to miss work hehe (ooPss..sorry boss) Anyway, it seems like only yesterday when I wrote the post about "Cooking Up A Surprise" and already the event is tomorrow! Everything is just perfect, the way I see it work out in my mind, but..I really have not gotten what I would need yet. Been so engrossed playing it over and over in my head that I totally neglected the fact that there's a lot of work involve for the whole play to be a success. I don't even have the essentials just yet. But hey, no need to fret now coz I'm always good with 11th hour stuff hehe So what I'm doing today is go out with my friend wena to get everything taken care of. Have to do all that this morning because dada will be home at 2pm (tick-tock)..wish me luck people!

Cooking Up a Surprise  

Posted by soreal

It's getting really close and I'm so excited hehe It's going to be our 1st ever Valetines together and I want it to be super special so I've got a few surprises already planned. Dada is not the most creative person in the world and I know he is planning something as well and I appreciate the effort his putting into trying to cook up a surprise for me hehe (so cute) But my surprise for him, well let's just say it's gonna blow him away! Too bad I can't write about it now coz it will ruin the whole event hehe but I will write about it after and maybe I will post pics as well hehe cheers!

Be an Ultrasound Tech  

Posted by soreal

Ever wanted to pursue a medical career and have just not had the time yet or not sure which of the many field in medicine to pursue? Well it’s never too late to start now. The one thing in particular that I’m very much interested in is Ultrasonography. I find it fascinating how an ultrasound tech utilizes the same high-frequency sound waves that bats and dolphins use, to view real-time, three dimensional images of a patient’s organ. This helps doctors in locating an abnormal growth or cystic formation inside a person’s body. It is the same technology that also makes it possible for expectant parents to view their babies even before birth.

Finding an Ultrasound Technician School need not be difficult for anyone interested in Medical Sonography. This site will help you get started off in choosing the right school for your medical career. You will find information about the nearest ultrasound tech school and more. Why wait for another time when today is clearly as good a time as any to pursue a career in the field of medicine. The most appealing thing about this career is that it is something that you can always fall back on after a period of time because of the steady growth in the demand of healthcare professionals.

Online Casino  

Posted by soreal

When I’m not blogging, I usually am looking for cool sites that offer a whole lot of games and bonuses. My recent bag is playing online casinos so when I chanced upon casino joyland, I stayed. I love how easy to navigate the site is and the assortment of games to choose from. Joyland casino is perfect for people who value their time even when they play.

Times and Dates  

Posted by soreal

Do you sometimes forget what time and day it is? Well I do, and it’s not just sometimes but most of the time. I swear if I don’t have my handy-dandy phone with me to remind me of dates and appointments; I would be so lost in time.

At some government office, a lady asked me what date that day was because she needed it for the form she was filling out. I just stared at her for a minute then said”7th. Trouble was, it was the “8th” and when she submitted the 3 paged document to the attendant, she was asked to do it all over again because the dates were wrong and they wouldn’t accept erasures.

Hey, don’t you guys go thinking it was my fault, I mean I never volunteered the date. Who asked her to ask me what the date was anyway? I wasn’t the only one there. Besides, anyone filling out important, government needed documents should’ve already secured all the needed information including dates before even getting their pen out. Oh well, I did say a quick sorry although it was deliberately her fault. Hmp!

Combat Hair Loss  

Posted by soreal

Every so often I find hair on my sheets, pillows and on the floor. I know that it’s normal for hair to fall off on a daily basis because we are also growing hair on a daily basis. This is happening to everyone everywhere so this shouldn’t stress me out but it does. My real concern is that my hair is not as dense as most people’s. What if the amount of hair I grow everyday isn’t equal to the amount of hair I’m losing? That is saying that I’m just not growing enough hair to replace the strands I’m shredding. It is simply a disaster. I know some people look good without hair but bald is not a look that I can pull off.
Fueled with my determination to put a halt to hair loss; I spent hours gathering facts on the internet. I learned about provillus; a natural supplement that gives life back to dead hair follicles. Does provillus work? I’m one of those that asked that question. Yes it does; as a matter of fact, provillus reviews show a steady growth in the number of people already growing their hair back. This is very promising and something I want to try myself.

Learning to be Thankful  

Posted by soreal

Life isn't perfect; I know mine isn't. There are times though that I'm captured in a moment so delightful and it is in those fleeting moments that I feel perfection around me..if only it could last. I realized though that everyone is going through something and there are people fighting an even more difficult battle. Think of the people in Africa and how every minute must be excruciating for them. What can I say, deep down I'm really just a brat but I'm thankful that dada is helping me grow up. So instead of complaining, I'm learning to be thankful!

When I want to shower and there's no water (think of the people in Africa)
When having a bad hair day (think of the people in Africa)
When I find cat crap outside the doorstep (think of the people in Africa)
When I get an irate customer on the phone (think of the people in Africa)
When anything goes wrong that drives me up the wall (think of the people in Africa)

Valentine's Award  

Posted by soreal

Tnx Twinks for this lovely award ^_^

Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated on Feb. 14. It is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other; sending Valentine's cards, or gifting candy. It is very common to present flowers on Valentine's Day.

For me, everyday should be a Valentine's Day. Everyday should be a share-our-love day. Valentine's Day is not just a mere giving of flowers, gifts, candlelight dinner, it is the essence of love as a whole. Valentine's Day makes the celebration of LOVE more romantic.

Passing this on to Chitru, Wena, Eds, Apple and Anino.

It's About the Forehead  

Posted by soreal

I just could not help but be amused at Twinkltoe's post and how I can so relate to it. I was called "dangas" when I was a kid and I always get into fights coz other kids rile me so much about it. I hated having a wide forehead that I tried so pathetically to hide it with silly bangs. The problem with the bangs is that when my forehead gets damp, the hair group themselves into sections. So I would have sectioned bangs with awkward spaces in between. I know what your thinking, a complete hair mess hehe oh those were the old days. I could never pull off the "bangs" look so I stopped trying a long time ago. Besides, my forehead looks good on me so I flaunt it. Not everyone with wide foreheads carry it as well as Twinks and I do yet still find humor in it(talk about tooting my own horn hehe) More than once, I've made a room burst into laughter with my "dangas" jokes hehe Oh well, you know what they say about women with wide foreheads...^_-

The Late Parcel  

Posted by soreal

It's a Saturday and my last day of work for the week. So anyway, I finally got the slimming pills I ordered online hehe desperate I know but these are desperate times. I still am a hottie though I've packed a few pounds (ehem) It's just that I can't help but miss the skinnier version of moi. I miss buying clothes off the rack without trying it on first coz I know It'll fit just right. There are times when it's all good but there are also times when I feel terrible. That is why I ordered the slimming pills. The purchase happened on the last week of December (07) but I only got the nofication from the postal office last week (crappie I know) It was only suppose to take 15 days tops since I payed extra for priority. I emailed the merchant when I didn't receive it on the 16th day and I got a reply that it was sent and should have been delivered to me already. The merchant suggested that I check the postal office here but heck, I didn't bother. Will keep you you guys posted and if it works then I'll let you in on it! Cheers!

Why I wrote My Reasons  

Posted by soreal

I always look forward to every 1st of the month because it's our monthsary. I wanted to do something really special for this month so I started the planning about 2 weeks ago. When I started writing the "245 (the equivalent number of days in 8 months) reasons why I love dada", part of me wanted to wait till our 1st anniversary so it will be "365 reasons"; well another part of me couldn't wait though so I did it now for our 8th monthsary. I had to do everything at work because I didn't want to risk dada finding out about it. I've posted the pretty box containing the 245 reasons (handwritten). Most people will find what I did really sweet but I know some people will not get it. I wanted to let the man that I love know my reasons for loving him and I wanted to know my reasons as well. There is something about having it written down that makes it so real. I personally believe that when you love someone, you have to both show it and say it. It is important that they eyes see love manifested and that ears hear it. The heart alone is weak so we should love with all our senses as well.

The No Trouble Thesis  

Posted by soreal

I have written in an earlier post how I am now in contact with my bestfriend after years of not hearing anything from each other. In her latest message she asked some help with her thesis and it made me realize how she changed. She was never the one to care about school stuff before. In as much as I wanted to help her with it though, I’m already swamped with too much stint at the moment. I know for a fact how infuriating writing an academic paper is. I can’t even remember how many times I have torn or crumpled my research papers and essays back in college before submitting them. These days though, nobody has to endure that same torture when you can have your paper for success done by certified professionals in a few hours depending on the content. What a breather!

Mumble The Dada Bear  

Posted by soreal

Hey guys, I'm blogging at work hehe Anyway, I would like to thank all of you for helping Dada and I decide on the name to give our cute baby bear (how corny can I get hehe) We both love Mumble in the Happy Feet Movie so we are really glad with the voting results. It's our 8th Monthsary today and my surprise for Dada is ready. It's something he's not expecting hehe I will make another post about it. We will go out later in the day to celebrate our day, I'm thinking of maybe even taking Mumbles because I'm sure he also wants to celebrate finally having an official name but I think I would look funny and it would spoil the outfit I have in mind hehe Cheers!

To Start A Biz  

Posted by soreal

My friend Wena and I have always fancied ourselves as businesswomen. We started planning last year; we even eyed the most promising Small Business Line of Credit for the capital so we can spin off. I suppose most people want to start some form of business on the sides and unless you got enough family money or savings; you seek for the right organization to offer financing. Small Business Line of Credit is best for the small scale biz because the terms are easy and you don’t need to have collateral.
