Bessie-Moo And The Digital Filipino Web Awards...

.:Bessie-Moo And 'Til The Cows Come Home...:.

Estelle and I have admittedly not been in touch with each other for the most part after her birthday, but that's all right, since the minute we take the time out to hang out yet again, it's like we only met yesterday.

After a long time of being incommunicado, I dropped by Estelle's house a couple of Sundays ago to watch “Tropic Thunder” with her. It was a fairly funny movie, albeit my brain really did turn to mush after the whole thing. It was one of those “park your brain at the door” affairs, so admittedly, it didn't help us find the deeper meaning of life while we were watching it. It was loads better than “Balls Of Fury”, though, which had a guy who was just like Jack Black... except he was significantly less funny than Jack Black is, and there are enough people who think Jack Black isn't funny at all as is.

After watching the film and realizing who Tom Cruise was in the movie only about three-fourths of the way into the film, we then headed out to Market!Market! so we could go and have some Lazer Tag, which Estelle happens to be a hustler in. She just whooped nearly everyone else playing in the game, to say the least. I met up with a few of her debater friends at that point, and amusingly enough, we were talking about how she seemed to be so preoccupied with the new guy working at Lazer Tag. ::whistles innocently::

Last Friday, during my enrollment, I actually ran into her in Ateneo, where they were actually having a debate tournament. It was rather cool, since for the most part, Estelle and I, despite both being debaters, have next to never seen each other in a debate setting. Last Friday was only the second time, truth be told, and her quirkiness shone through.

I may not see Bessie a lot, but at the end of the day, I know she's one of the most awesome people I know. I definitely can't help but think how fun it is keeping her company, and though we're both pretty busy, it's good to know that we're still there for each other when it counts. :)

.:The Digital Filpino Web Awards:.

To say that Jannette Toral knows how to get people together would be an understatement. Last November 5, we were treated to the rousing success known as the Digital Filipino Web Awards.

Much congratulations to all the winners, and a special thanks to the people from CashSense for having the time to hang out with myself, Jester, and a few other friends from Filipino Voices. It was especially amusing to find out that one of my old friends all the way from 4th year high school, Albert, was part of the whole outfit.

Anyways, the awards show was a simple but very meaningful gathering. As always, it was an event that gave us the opportunities to really get in touch with potential contacts, and if there's one thing Ms. Janette absolutely rules at, it would be her ability to network with people, and to give people opportunities to do the same. She's a phenom like that.

Here's to a successful event, and hopefully, another of these next year! :)
