So today is our test day for the basic occupational safety and health training.

I was not at all nervous. Somehow, I guessed that like any other tests sponsored by the national government , this would turn out to be a big joke.

And I was right. But instead of feeling joyous that I had things easy, I was sad. A small part of me wished that Filipinos would gain some pride and dignity to test-taking over the years. But like many generations before us, we prove time and again how little we have faith in our abilities and how much we treat everything as a joke.

1. Test was leaked to us.
2. Lecturer verbally revealed all the questions (in order) to us before we took the test in the guise of review
3. Open notes; and open cheating (as suggested by the lecturer)
4. Check your own paper.

yes... same goes with other seminars that are required to attend... been there and done that...

Yup! It’s yummier than it actually looks. And I didn’t know that it was so meaty! I only got to eat half the belly but it was so filling. Too much for 4 people. I would think 6 is the perfect number. But yes, it’s pricey. It’s a good thing I’m not the one paying it.

Haha! I know the feeling. My mom loves to bicker when we're abroad. She gets agitated being abroad, maybe it's because she's out of her comfort zone. What I do is that when she just wants to stay in the hotel, I sneak out and enjoy the scenery. You should just travel with your husband. The bickering is a bore.

Wow! I have a millennial reader. :-). 歡迎
I actually realise I enjoy spending money on travels and food more than saving for the future. Maybe thats the reason why my savings is getting depleted.
I just wish I can travel more with friends and my kids. My previous European trip was a disaster with my mom and husband bickering and fighting almost everyday of our trip. To think, I went to the Catholic Church and the Chinese temple to pray over these two impossible people just to make the trip enjoyable. Now they arent even on speaking terms. I guess they dont love me enough to make the effort to get along.

A recent happening at FFCCII brought a lot of smirks among its members.

A Senator-Wanabe (SW) visited the headquarters of FFCCII to promote his senatorial bid. As practice , members would give red ampaos (money envelope) and put them in one envelope to show their support . Its normally coursed through the organizers. In this way, the money collected will represent the whole group and not an individual. And it looks better because the money you give is supposed to benefit the organization rather than individual interest.

An Unpopular Member (UM) thought of going against the flow of tide. When the envelope was being passed around , he refused to put his ampao in the envelope. Instead, he held on to his ampao and waited for SW to personally give it to him. His ampao was probably big enough that he wants individual recognition from SW. it also implies that he is pushing for self-interest. To his dismay, SW refused the ampao. UM insisted. The organizers interceded and explained that UM should give the ampao to them and they will give it to SW. UM refused and wanted to personally give his money to SW. His stubbornness drew the ire of the organizers. They tried to explain that it doesnt look good and ethical for SW to directly accept the money from a billionaire businessman. But I dont know if its bec of age or his enormous loan but he made quite a scene because he cant seem to understand the politics behind it.

UM Is probably hoping for a presidential blessing to get to the highest post in this organization, as he knows he can hardly get it when he doesnt have the support of its Aging Captain (AC).

Im very sad today. And troubled.

I met my long time friend who is residing in the US. She is a pretty, happy soul. She is also a very traditional chinese gal.

I saw sadness in her eyes when I met her yesterday. So I asked her if everything is alright with her. She admitted that her husband is not having sex with her. I tried to make her feel better so I said its usually like that after more than 10 years of marriage. We cant really expect honeymoon everyday. But I was shocked to learn that her husband doesnt really like having sex even during honeymoon stage. Considering she was a virgin on her wedding day, it was so hard for her to be initiating and making the moves on her husband. She dearly wants to have a child on her own but how can she? If nothing is happening in her bedroom. Very sure though that the guy doesnt have any other girl. In fact, the guy is the plainest guy I know. No opinion, no reaction, just plain old joe that can really fade in the background.

Dinner with Math Group

I just finished dinner with my BS Math friends. And I realize that they will always have a special place in my heart.

They know me at my nerdiest and craziest self. One time, I actually grew white hairs (at 19!) because I was obsessed with proving a difficult theorem. I felt like I was living in a vacuum. My boyfriend that time was like an annoying pest that takes up my time. I hardly ate or socialise. I wore commercial Tshirts so I dont have to think of what to wear the next day. These friends were the only ones who communicated with me, who can get through me. Until I snapped out of it. Instead of stopping me, they hold meaningful mathematical discussions with me. Nobody mocked me. They took me seriously and applauded my efforts.

For fun, we would huddle in the library and solve past Olympiad problem sets. To make money, we accept solving math problems from the school community. In the end, we were able to set aside six figure amount in the bank account of our Math Club before we graduated.

Now, we talk about life , family and children. We surveyed each other if our children share our passion for Math , and most dont. And we all laughed. Bec it is alright for us if our children are different from us. But nice thing though, all our children have high aptitude in Math. And again, most are musicians. I really dont know why there seems to be a correlation between Math and Music. But it seems like it.

We also have this same passion for Eraserheads. Maybe because we lived in the 90s.

Bottom line is I am in my most comfortable skin with them. Not once in my life did I feel any judgement. Financial status, material things even looks never mattered with these bunch.

Math. Booze. Music. Eraserheads. Oooh my list of favorite things. How can anyone replace them in my heart?

El Capitans choice is Mary. And she , I feel ,
is the beat candidate. She placed competent managers in her businesses so that she doesnt need to report for work everyday and oversee her biz. She is single. She has great PR among people from different classes. Thats why even a nobody like me gets her to climb a few Floor to say Hi to me. She has close network of ambassador and diplomats. She wont think twice helping anyone using hwr resources, even if its over and beyond the expectation. And its never a one-time thing for her. She consistently invites you over for a meal even if theres no agenda.

He only waterloo is her poot mandarin skills. Other than that, she has everything one can hope for to lead an influential organization such as FFCCII.

They only hope that Duterte and other strong politikal figures wont meddle in their election.
