All About Rej Part II

I am a homebody and an introvert too. I love staying at home because I believe that we should not spend too much money these days. But sometimes I also enjoy going out with friends doing simple stuff like Pilipino’s most favorite pastime “tsismisan” and catering ourselves with the cheapest value meal. I am also friendly and bubbly only when I get approached first, otherwise I wouldn’t go out of my way to talk to you because I am really shy and kinda moody.

I used to be furtive but today I consider myself a new person (of course that’s figuratively speaking). I can’t say I am a better human being but I am proud to say that I am gradually learning how to speak up. And that’s good news!

There are things that I can’t do and very poor at. I don’t know how to swim (that’s why I often say “no” to swimming jaunt). I stutter everytime I speak English (that’s why I’d rather write). I can’t sing like Regine Velasquez (although my high school friends call me “R2K”). I have a slight memory problem (that’s why some people say I have Alzheimer’s disease). I am very poor in Science (that’s my worst subject in my entire school history). And lastly, I always have a hard time buying shoes/sandals (that’s my biggest frustration ever). Actually, there is so much more to add in the list. Nevertheless, there are also things that I am good at. Let me enumerate some: (1) I know when I can splurge and when to be tight-fisted; (2) I have long thread of patience when it comes to kids; (3) I iron clothes for about three to four hours; (4) I text my friends at least once in a while just to let them know that I remember them; and (5) I know how to boil water, tear foil packs, open can goods and fry hotdogs. Fantastic, don't you think? Hehe!!

I am also a big fan of the Fab 5, Ely Buendia, APO Hiking Society, Gary Valenciano and so much more. Watching reality tv shows and listening to different kinds of music are my simple entertainment bliss. Although I don’t have the luxury to watch television lately I am still a “Kapuso” and never a “Kapamilya.” I also collect empty perfume bottles, coffee plastic cups, tissue papers, miniature of cartoon figures, pirated CDs and any memorable stuff. Basically most of the things that I own are inexpensive in prices but with gargantuan significance. Actually, I am a bit sentimental fool.

I have a job now. I don’t know my real status in that company but I am working three days a week. It’s annoying at times but I still regard myself lucky because I am able to see all of my friends at least once or twice a week. And most importantly, I have at least few Peso bill to put in my Piggy bank.

At my age, I have not entered a bar and have never been to Eastwood and Rockwell but it does not make my life less exciting. I just choose to take delight on doing simple things (specially when I don't have to take even a single centavo from my pocket). But if you would treat me a dinner in a five star hotel,” of course I won’t be a hypocrite. Hehe!!
