So I realized that I’ve been useless as Tumblr-er…
and I may as well go away.
I realized that while I enjoyed Tumblr for a while, it’s really not my thing. I may be old school in the sense that I look for personal posts written/drawn/uploaded by people rather than reblogged entries. Again, that’s just me.
I’ll still check out Tumblr from time to time as there are people whose blogs I follow. But I don’t think I’ll be posting entries here for a while. I’m at http://tinaaraneta.com, if ever you want to check it out.
Happy New Year, everyone! May 2011 bring you lots of awesomeness. :)

Buddy turned 12 weeks old today. He can sit on command, runs around like the Tasmanian Devil on steroids, chews on practically everything (unless you shout “NO”, which will make him stop), has a very fixed pooping and peeing schedule (which makes toilet training really easy), likes ice cubes in his water dish, and hates the sun.
Happy 12th week, Mr. Bud!

WIKIPEDIA WIN. Because that really is his name now, you  guys! How do you think he managed to get himself listed at #8 on our  ballots? (I was wondering for the longest time.) Because his surname is BONG  REVILLA.
I’m sorry, I’m all for supporting the candidates we  have regardless of who we voted for, but he just makes it too easy.

When my brother told me that Ramon “Bong” Revilla really changed his surname to BONG REVILLA (so that, alphabetically, his name would be higher on the list in the elections), I literally LOL’d.

The much-anticipated national elections finally happened, and my family and I went to Miriam College (where our district would be voting) at 7am. We thought, since we were early, that we’d be done fairly quickly.WRONG!The lines just to get into the covered courts were snaking ‘round the parking lot. When we got to the “holding area” of sorts prior to entering the gym, there was mayhem because people couldn’t find their precinct and cluster numbers. I was one of those who was “displaced” for a while there.Finally, after getting our validated stubs, we fell in line to enter the gym. After around 15 minutes of waiting, suddenly, the poll watchers broke up the line and told us to form new ones by clusters. BUT! There were still some people lining up in that original line and the poll watchers let them go ahead. Why? “Kasi matagal silang naghintay?" HELLO?Anyway, being the law-abiding citizens that we were, we did fall in line by clusters. But the poll watchers didn’t know how to divide us. They numbered the sections “Cluster 1, 2, 3” and so on. But no one knew which clusters fell under those so-called categories. It was so frustrating!After several minutes elapsed, finally, we were able to figure out which cluster fell under which category. But, again, that original line kept on moving…and most of the people lined up there were already in the gym. The cluster “lines” started protesting and before we knew what was happening, there was a mini-stampede.A lot of shouting ensued, needless to say. Disorganization at its finest! For the nth time, the poll watchers made us line up once more by clusters. AGAIN, despite what would’ve been more convenient (a.k.a. ignoring the poll watchers and running towards the gym), my family and I lined up again.It took another hour and a half before I actually got to vote. My mom and sister, who were in a different cluster, finished much faster and went ahead. My brother, helpers and I were stuck in a slow-moving cluster.Finally, after a LONG four-hour wait, I was finally able to vote! It was a thrill to be able to see “Congratulations! Your ballot has been scanned.” But the saga wasn’t entirely over as we were made to line up YET AGAIN for our thumbprints and signatures. *sigh*Yet, when I think about it, what was four and a half hours compared to six years of change? I’m glad that I was able to exercise my right to vote and to participate in a democratic endeavor.Mabuhay ang sambayanang Pilipino!

This photo was taken around an hour ago at the resort where my family and I are staying. My mom did laps in the pool and I watched. I’m gonna do my own swimming sometime later with my siblings.
Anyway, here’s to my mom — I hope I’ll be able to do as many laps as you do when I get to your age (she does 60 on a daily basis; beat that!) and I hope to rouse my very dormant culinary genes someday. Thank you for being my hero, my mentor in life and in Christianity, our court jester (your Sonia-isms will live on forever, I tell you), the dogs’ eternal Santa Claus of treats, and so much more.
Happy Mommy’s Day! Love you! ♥

Hello, Tumblr! Apologies for my negligence. Work’s been insane the last two weeks. I hardly spent time in front of my computer. The past few weekends were likewise spent away from Internetlandia. I’ve missed you all though.
Will be posting more soon. In the meantime, a macro shot taken with my new-old Canon G9, which I bought less than 30 minutes ago. A family friend decided to let go of it since it was hardly used and she contacted me. How could I refuse such a sweet deal? She sold it to me for PhP 10K (roughly USD 215), to be paid in installments over 5 paydays. And she brought it to my house. SWEET, I TELL YOU.
Besides, I’ve decided to reward myself because God has blessed me tremendously at work. Will expound more on that soon. Hee.
Now I can go to concerts with a non-SLR-but-still-kick-butt-camera-with-awesome-range. Mwahahaha.
Anyway, I’m off to spend the weekend at a nearby “recreational” (?) resort, if you could call it that, with my family. Have a great weekend, all!

My sister and I just finished taking webcam photos of our ourselves with Buddy.
I thought it’d be a good way to immortalize my tan as well. Haha!
