dinner at the highlands steakhouse

a day before CHRISTmas, after the usual sunday walk through the malls (walk because we just look ... no buying =P) we decided to eat at best steakhouse in tagaytay highlands... the highlands steakhouse located at Mall of Asia.

what can i say... the food was great(i had a 7 oz primerib steak (14oz split into two persons with the side dish)... the service terrific... the ambience was beautiful... you got to try it :D (its kinda pricey though... well worth it i think Ü)

worst service ever!

we went to a fairly well known pizza parlor famous for their "thin crust pizzas" (should be easy to guess which pizza parlor it is with that clue =P) somewhere in rockwell. hey guess what, they have one of the worst service ever!

as we went in to the store... there were a few attendants no one greeted us. All the tables were dirty and we stand there looking like idiots for a looong time. If only my dad did not want to eat there we would have moved to another resto.

and so we were finally ... finally served (as if you call that service). to be fair the food came out fast, but then we had to call the waiter 5 times to ask for water and at the end, nothing came. we asked for the bill 5 times before it arrived... and we asked for toothpick 5 more times before it arrived, great ! really great service.

i really am not going back to that pizza parlor ever again! (well i guess the service is good in some other locations...)

something funny down there...

sunday... almost late for church... the usual rush to the toilet... rush wearing clothes... rush wearing my shoes... rush to church... and i still was unable to get to church on time.

upon getting back home, i felt something funny down there... crunchy/itchy inside my shoes... what could it be. as i eagerly took my shoes off.... A COCKROACH lol! my stinking feet probably killed it hahaha

now i aint gonna rush wearing my shoes no more =P

reunion with friends

i had a reunion with some friends today... it had been a long time since most of us has met each other.

we had sandwich buffet, ingredients was spread in a long table and you had to create your own sandwich =D kinda fun. the whole night was spent on "updating each other" (no we are not software applications =P) gossips and some other chit chat =D

well.. thats probably it...

P.S. i got to try my skills at cooking... a first for me!

no cone ice cream...

today i went to watch the new 007 james bond film (it rocks!). while waiting for the movie to start, i went lookin' for food (hey it was 3PM have not eaten lunch yet!) after eating my lunch (japanese!) i thought i might get a cup of starbucks for dessert but then i passed through this ad... "no cone ice cream" hmmm... sounds interesting!

it's called crazy crepes, crepe is used instead of ice cream cone. i quickly ordered a mango ice cream crepe... obviously it comes with some mangoes, then some cream, cereals, peanuts and of course the crepe (diet killed =P). once i got hold of it, i started munching hehe... the cream was not cold.. hmm i thought it should be or perhaps the ice cream was much colder =D

after a while i encountered a problem... how do i eat the crepe!!?? sure the spoon can cut through some of thinner parts but not the thicker ones... in the end i resorted to "pulling" the crepe with my bare hands =D

it was a little bit pricey at 105, but it is filling... and it tastes soooo good you ought to try it... its also kinda unique =D

hands down by dashboard confessional

im currently going gaga over this song... "hands down" by dashboard confessional :) their new album dusk and summer is also nice! =D

Breathe in for luck
Breathe in so deep
This air is blessed
You share with me
This night is wild
So calm and dull
These hearts they race
From self-control
Your legs are smooth
As they graze mine
We're doing fine
We're doing nothing at all

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me
So won't you kill me
So I die happy
My heart is yours to fill or burst
To break or bury
Or wear as jewelry
Whichever you prefer

The words are hushed
Let's not get busted
Just lay entwined here
Safe in here from all those stupid questions
"Hey did you get some?"
Man, that is so dumb
Stay quiet
Stay near
Stay close, they can't hear
So we can get some

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me
So won't you kill me
So I die happy
My heart is yours to fill or burst
To break or bury
Or wear as jewelry
Whichever you prefer

Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember
I'll always remember the sound of the stereo
The dim of the soft lights
The scent of your hair
That you twirled in your fingers
And the time on the clock
When we realized it's so late
And this walk that we shared together
And the streets were wet
And the gate was locked
So I jumped it
And >>>>>I<<<<< let you in
And you stood at your door
With your hands on my waist
And you kissed me like you meant it
And I knew,
That you meant it
That you meant it
That you meant it
And I knew,
That you meant it
That you meant it...

Happy listening... so won't you kill me...? =P joke!

that gorgeous girl

she was walking slowly on the road... her hair was long and beautiful... swaying and moving with her... in an all white dress she looked liked an angel =P...

my sister was mockingly singing "sumasabay sa galaw mo... sumasabay..." (meaning her hair was moving with her... a shampoo commercial song =P)

i purposely stopped the car just to get a glimpse of her... guess what ... she noticed and started staring at us with those scary eyes... yikes!

went straight ahead... that was embarrasing. but she should be grateful someone noticed how beautiful she was =P i think...!

my own ice cream

today i concocted my very own vanilla ice cream... with the help of my sisters =D

it was simple enough ... just mix the following ingredients:
1/2 cup all purpose cream
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon Vanilla flovoring

then freeze....

after a few hours we took it out and guess what... it tasted like ice cream... but


it was not creamy at all =( at least it was not bad for a starter... i guess!

i wonder what happened

there is this quote somewhere which goes like this "some people make things happen, some watch things happen, and some wonder what has happened". i really think i fall in the "watch things happen" but tonight... i wonder what has happened.

lately, ive been regularly going to the gym every tuesdays and thursdays... i feel a lot more energetic.. and surely i lost some weight. Some people notice this and some people don't, but that's not the topic here so... :P

yesterday (tuesday), i was not able to go to the gym because i had to go somewhere else. So today i though i might as well do some jogging and push ups to make up for that... then this strange feeling happened... i can't do even 10 pushups!

before i started going to the gym... i used to be able to do around 20 easily.. no sweat (yabang mode =P) so i'm wondering... what has happened. :( any ideas anyone?

perhaps im working on a different muscle while im in the gym??? anyways.. i wonder...

an irritating and funny encounter (edit: rethinking, i think what i thought was disgusting)

i usually sleep at the public transport and today is not an exception, the traffic was so bad i was so sleepy yawns... suddenly this "kid" (this adult should grow up!) comes in... takes his nokia 6XXX series (symbian phone) and plays a game at full volume! trying to get attention! everyone's sleeping man! be considerate!

irritated, i started thinking of what if's in my mind... and here's something interesting i'd make up...

what if this "kid" comes in... takes his nokia 6XXX series (symbian phone) and plays a game at full volume, trying to get everyones attention. Suddenly I get my N70 and play a porn movie in full volume! then everyone starts looking at me...
the "kid" will surely die while playing galaga or whatever lame shoot em up he's got on his phone...
the old man beside me will surely be excited to see something in action... although he might get a heart problem in a while.. lolz...
the lady in front of me will probably be trying to cast out some devil spirit from me as i saw her praying while the "kid" was just playing a game...
as for the other passengers... i dunno! hahaha

wow now that's some imagination i got there... anyways. stay happy!

start of something new

i went shopping today, that's what most girls do when their down... but honestly it works! lolz. bought this tri-fold wallet which i saw a few days back... i never bought it because my wallet was still usable, but since i am a bit down... what the hell! lets buy this wallet! hahaha (just bought one thing though... don't want to be carried away spending lots of money which i should not spend!)

went food trippin the rest of the day... with my parents (its one thing they like... food, that's why look at my size! =P) thankfully, they stopped eating and my diet was not destroyed! hahahaha (been goin' to the gym lately... lost 4 lbs!)

Currently i'm listening to this song (singing with it... you should hear me sing =P), and really looking forward for the "start of something new"

Living in my own world
Didn't understand
That anything can happen
When you take a chance
I never believed in
What I couldn't see
I never opened my heart
To all the possibilities
I know that something has changed
Never felt this way
And right here tonight

This could be the start
Of something new
It feels so right
To be here with you
And now looking in your eyes
I feel in my heart
The start of something new

Now who'd of ever thought that
We'd both be here tonight
And the world looks so much brighter
With you by my side
I know that something has changed
Never felt this way
I know it for real

This could be the start
Of something new
It feels so right
To be here with you
And now looking in your eyes
I feel in my heart
The start of something new

I never knew that it could happen
Till it happened to me
I didn't know it before
But now it's easy to see

It's a start
Of something new
It feels so right
To be here with you
And now looking in your eyes
I feel in my heart

That it's the start
Of something new
It feels so right
To be here with you
And now looking in your eyes
I feel in my heart
The start of something new
Start of something new

we're still friends

today, the girl I was courting (or perhaps i have not even started =D) tells me that "friendship is all i can offer you....." ouch, i really liked her... loved her... and it ended just like that... anyways i think that love could never be a one sided thing... so let's leave it to that..... =D

after all these happenings, i could only say its nice to have friends, through out the whole process (or whatever you call this courtship thingy) there were friends who showed their concern and helped me in a lot of ways. I sincerely thank you guys for bein' there (yieeee cheesy naman nito lolz).

Best of all we're still friends.... (with her, you know the girl im courting... =D)

P.S. one thing i'll try to remember "if you have good intentions and not doing anything wrong, go ahead and do it" =D

i so love this song now...

i have not been posting any lately.. just droppin by and copy and pasting the lyrics of "what hurts the most" by rascal flatts... i so love this song...
I can take the rain
On the roof of this empty house
That don’t bother me
I can take a few tears now and then
And I just let ‘em out
I’m not
afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though goin’ on with you gone still
upsets me
There are days every now and again
I pretend I’m okay
that’s not what gets me


What hurts the most
Was being
so close
And havin’ so much to say
And watchin’ you walk away
never knowin’
What could’ve been
And not seein’ that lovin’ you
what I was tryin’ to do

It’s hard to deal with the pain
Of losin’
you everywhere I go
But I’m doin’ it
It’s hard to force that smile
When I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still harder gettin’ up,
gettin’ dressed, livin’ with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade, give away
All the words that I saved in my heart
I left unspoken

Not seein’ that lovin’ you
That’s what I was trying
to do
Oooo, Oooo, Oooo –

View the official website linked to this page... place where i got the lyrics Ü

ciao for now... Ü

finally a rebound

It was in the last few minutes of the game, we had a reasonable lead in the game. Suddenly they let me in the court... tallest guy in the team... the biggest guy... BUT... I don't know how to play basketball ! =P

The other team went to the penalty line and I stand as one of the rebounders... then a miracle happened, I got the ball!!! lolz Maybe it was because they were all tired nobody wanted to get the ball so I was able to get it... at least I finally made a rebound =D

P.S. ... ive wrote this a month back.. just forgot to post it :D my my... well here you are.. did not update it anymore... cause its like soooo old a post :D

ban Da Vinci Code??

I sometimes can't understand why there is all this fuzz about "the Da Vinci Code". All different groups are calling for it to be banned, it was even set as an adults only film here in the Philippines.

Anyways, i've seen one unique reason why it is to be banned =P , please see clipping below... =D dunno where it came from though...

cute since 1982

I was joking around with some friends the other day when I changed my status to "cute since 1982", they started changing theirs to "loverboy since 1983", "Romantic since 1981" and a friend of mine even suggested I could change it to "adorable since 1982" or even "funny since 1982". (Thank you.. i never thought i made such a good impressiong =P)

Anyways, after that I wondered if I really was cute since 1982 =P and so I started rummaging through some old pics. Guess what, i really was cute =P (till now =P). I've always thought my mommy dears and auntie were just toying with me when they said I was the cutest little boy ... and look what happened to you now... (still cute I presume =P)

I loved the pic i've posted here, it was kinda funny... me holding flowers at that age.

P.S. The title should have been "will you be my special someone" but I thought it might be too cheesy. So I went with cute since 1982, I am cute right?... this is my blog so just agree with me ok? =P

i still can't believe he ran

I still can't believe he ran... maybe he was in a hurry... maybe he thought it was a competition... maybe i misunderstood him... but it sure was funny...

I was walking along Ayala Avenue this morning, the sun was shining and i'm late for work (again =P). Walking briskly down the underpass i saw a guy who was walking as fast as I was... shuffling my feet even quicker down the stairs, I managed to close the gap between us. both of us were walking briskly along side each other now, we moved from side to side to overtake other people... and at the end of the tunnel I swiftly made a right turn... marginally getting ahead of him, then the unexpected happened... HE RAN!!! lolz he actually ran just to get ahead of me =P

Still yawning, I let him be, there wasn't any trophies to be won, no competition. Perhaps the situation made him felt he were in a race... but I still can't believe he ran. =P

My Birthday!

Today is my birthday. Nothing special really happened... just got back from my vacation... and started working again =D Just wanted to drop by so you'd greet me a happy birthday =P

Hong Kong Disneyland!

I'm finally gonna get to meet donald duck in person!!!!! (my favorite disney character). The sun was scorching hot and oh boy how I wish I brought some sunblock with me =P

Getting off our bus from the parking lot, we had to walk around 15 minutes just to get to the main entrance of Disneyland (it's big huh =P), Our "tour guide" started distributing the tickets, which were cute... i choose the one with donald on it (of course =P)

Disneyland was like a city on itself, a magical city where you could get on all the cutesy rides (pooh!!!), some exciting (the thrilling "space mountain") and of course the 3d theater (starring Donald Duck =P).

There is a garden where all Disney characters await to take pictures with you (I only lined up for Donald... my parents, and sisters won't wait on the line :| ). My companions would rather go shopping on the souvenir shops scattered all around the place (all though i would say they really never bought anything in there =P)

At the end of the day, there was the fireworks presentation and we went back to our bus...

A whole month without posts

I haven't been updating my blog for about a month now, and seriously... i'm sorry, its really a shame my blog name is "something i did today" when i'm updating once a month =P.

Have been very busy lately, kinda busy... yes i think i was busy =P. As a summary, I have been for the last month:
  • tinkering with my new phone.
    Yes, finally i have bought a new phone to replace my old, handy dandy, trusted nokia 6210. I've been using the phone for around 3-4 years now and i'd say it was well worth its money. If it was not for its broken power switch, its messy lcd, handful of scratches, and a 10% success rate of sending a text message i would not have changed it yet =P btw i replaced it with an N70 =D maybe ill write a review about it next time.

  • writing articles =D
    I have been doing some writing gigs, small sidelines just for a change. The pay is not that big... but if you are interested... you may want to visit "" =D and look for Jien

  • Looking for a mall space
    Looking for a mall space for a franchise, May be you could recommend one ? =D... me and some of my friends have been planning to franchise this ... better keep my mouth shut first =D... for no reason =D ...

  • watching movies, dvds and television
    Yeah, yeah. watched all sorts of film. Munich, Fearless, CSI, etc. I have also tried the Lazy boy Cinemas in Gateway Mall =D cozy... very nice place... with double the normal theater rate :|

Valentines Day !

Valentine's day... for a brief history... click on the link =D tired of copy and pasting. As I walked into the office today... there is one common sight, flowers =D people go home early to be with their family... some have dates... some don't =D

Today for the first time in my life, I did sent someone flowers =P ... details of it ... I won't tell ... =P don't even bother askin'

At night I watched the beautiful full moon. The moon was round, very round indeed. It was beautiful how it provided light to the dark sky. Even though sometimes it was covered by the darkness, it would still resurface shining brightly than ever.

I had a date with some kids at our penthouse. After staring at the moon alone, I saw some kids playing chinese chess so I decided to join them... as an audience. However after a few minutes, the other kid insisted on me playing for him, being an obedient guy I took the offer and showed them how this game is played =P

It's nice to play with kids... they ask the most unsual questions... they don't wanna admit lose... they run around chasing each other without any problems... nothing to think of... Plus ther are real real cute !!!

Well that's how my valentine went, how did yours go ? =D

Thursday, February 09, 2006

No time for love ?

My first time to one (Defensive !!! =P). Frankly I have no idea what a valentine's party would be... some say there'd be games... some say it's speed dating, some say it's another thing... with all the contradicting information I got... why not just go and see for myself =D

"No time for love ?" We arrived at the place, registered and have some food... and another round... and another one... there was a lot of food because only a few registered for the event... maybe everyone already had their own dates ? =D

After dinner, we had some games... they were:
1. Find your other half heart. At the registration booth we were given a piece of half heart... then a few more afterwards =P The objective of the game is be one of the first to find your partner, I did not bother to look, I had like 5 half hearts =D
2. Trip to Jerusalem. Modified version, instead of people sitting on chairs, the guys were asked to put wine bottles between their legs and the ladies would put their fingers inside the bottles once the music stops. I didn't join either
3. Suck and blow... Two groups were created and lined up according to the number we've drawn ("we" because I did join this game =P). The objective was to pass the cards using the mouth only (it looks as if you are kissing when passing the cards). I was in between a guy and a gurl... at times the cards blow off and you'd almost kiss the other person =D
4. Search for a partner The grand finale, A guy and a gurl gets blindfolded while 3 applicants say fiery words to get the searchers attention. =P

after the games, the floor was opened for dances and I still had with me a huge stack of drink stubs. I went home after =D Now I know what a valentine's party is !

It stings...

Somebody sent me a short story today... through a text message... and somehow I liked it... (nakakarelate ??!! =P)

There was a man who saw a scorpion floundering around in the water. He decided to save it by stretching out his finger, but the scorpion stung him. The man still tried to get the scorpion out of the water, but the scorpion stung him again. Another man nearby told him to stop saving the scorpion. But the man said "Its the nature of the scorpion to sting. Its my nature to love, why should I give up my nature to love just because its the nature of the scorpion to sting?"

Moral Lesson:Don't give up loving, don't give up your goodness, even if the people around you, sting.....

Nice Haircut !

A day before Chinese New Year... I had to have my hair trimmed (chinese tradition =P)But I did not want to walk far today... kinda lazy, so I decided to try the newly opened hair salon just around the corner.

The owner of the hair salon was a chinese who just came here in the Philippines, the salon was just built inside a residential house =D

Place was nice, cool (air conditioned), and well designed (it really looks like a parlor). I was asked to sit down and the owner started cutting my hair. After a few minutes (I did not even have the chance to take a short nap) she was done.. this is the fastest haircut I have ever had.

I went to wash my hair, and then paid the owner. Left the place, after saying my greetings "恭喜"

The haircut was nicely done ... I don't look stupid right... =D

my "Piggy Bank"

I have this big "Piggy Bank", coca cola shaped... bottle (stands up to my knees). Its pretty old and I thought how about filling it up with coins. So I started putting in 10 peso, 5 peso and even 20 peso bills on it.

After a while, I decided to take back the money... because of the following reasons:

1. A lot of money displayed is not a very good thing... i think...
2. Money inside the "Piggy Bank" won't grow any interest, who would not want to have that extra interest from the bank.
3. I kinda look like a kid putting coins inside this "Piggy Bank" =D

Anyways, since I have regret putting in the money inside I started prying on the bottle cap, and guess what... it won't open =( I spent practically 2 hours pulling, pushing, etc. (nice workout though... I sweat a lot =D) I even got my fingers cut =(

Finally a great idea came into mind.. since the bottle was huge, it also had a big hole at top. So I used a pair of pliers to remove each coin inside =P and finally, got the money back.

Today is Grand Ma's Birthday

Happy Birthday Grand Ma. Today, we ate at a local restaurant to celebrate her birthday, it also served as a time to get together within the family. Time really moves fast, my cousins were with their boy/girl friends now, some were even with their wife and children... goals have changed... priorities renewed =D

BTW, my grand ma is 90 years old now... but don't be fooled by that number... she'll still kick your ass when you do something stupid =P ... i'm out of words today.... =D Post finished !!!

Dinner with Achi Jack, Hiram Bro, Allan

This dinner has been planned a long long long long loooooong time ago, and finally.. it has been realized =D The idea came from Hiram Bro (Bro cause he calls Achi... Achi too ! there is yet another brother left to be found... wonder who he is... or maybe its a she =P)

The four of us met at Achi's office, before going straight to Sbarro. We chat along the way, made jokes, spilled some secrets (was there any? =P) and of course ate dinner. We also took some pictures.... however i can't post em here... because i'll surely be in big trouble if I do so =P

This was a great day. I hope we'll have dinner together again soon =D or perhaps an activity would be nice. =D

Friday, January 13, 2006


If you are wondering "what the heck that title is ??" then let me tell you what it means/is..... it is the morbid or irrational fear of Friday the 13th. Why is Friday the 13th associated with bad luck.... we'll see...

There are a lot of explanations why "Friday the 13th" was considered unlucky, this can be explained by "friday" and the number "13":
Friday was considered lucky because the following events happened on a friday

  • Christian Folklore: Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit.

  • Christian Folklore: Great flood.

  • Christian Folklore: Builders of Tower of Babel was tongue tied

  • Christian Folklore: Temple of Solomon was destroyed

  • Execution day in Rome

  • Hangman's day in Britain

13 is unlucky because

  • There were in all 13 people in the last supper, with one betraying Jesus Christ

  • A myth in which there were 12 gods who were invited for dinner and Loki (13th uninvited guest) the god of mischief, gate crashed the party and incited riot.

  • Associated with death in other cultures

There is however one day in history which is associated with Friday the 13th, Jaques de Molay, Grand Master of the Knights Templar, and 60 of his senior knights was arrested by King Philip IV of France on a Friday, October 13, 1307. That day thousands of Templars were arrested and subsequently tortured.

As for me though.... nothing really that bad happened today... i hope so... few hours left =P

Exercise and Diet !!!!

In line with my "New Year's Resolution" - getting slimmer (200 lbs), I have started with my exercise and diet. (I hope I'm not overdoing it =P)

Pant ... Pant ... Pant ... started jogging at our penthouse for the past few days, and all I can say is ... I hope its working cause its really tiresome =))

I jog three laps around our house , then I do 10-20 push ups to stop the panting and continue jogging again. Aside from jogging and push ups, I started climbing the stairs instead of using the elevator (umm around 20++ floors =P), I believe i'm slowly getting used to it as I don't pant as much as before =P. There are also times when I do a couple of situps and leg lifts... for my big belly. =P

Anyways, whoever said that a six pack (what is this a beer or something) is better than a big belly (which looks kinda like a "tai pao") =P

RICE... I NEED RICE... =P that is what's happening to me for the past few days, you'll never know how delicious rice is until you start a diet.

I've started eating 5 times a day instead of 3, 5 smaller ones of course =), limited my rice to a scoop on lunch and none on dinner (exchanged it with more fruits and vegetables =P)

P.S. I have already lost 5 lbs!!!!! 20 more to go =P

Unexpected email.... a new friend

I received an unexpected email the other day, it read:
Hi there!

I read your blog,
Are you from (-) (can't divulge too many secrets you know =P)


My first reaction was.... did I violate anything !!! (paranoid =P), receiving an email from someone in the company I work for... and so I sent her back an email, it read:
Hi Marj,

Sorry for the late reply, was not able to check my mail for a while.
Yes, I am from (-) how did you know that…. was it too obvious =))
Happy New Year !
P.S. I hope I am not violating anything …. =S
Thanks and regards,


It turns out that she was just browsing some blogs and passed through mine. There I have a new friend =D

P.S. marj if you are reading this --> "huy dichi (marj), mano na kay ang kong (me)!" hahaha =P Peace ! joke lang =D

New Year's Resolution !

Welcome year 2006 !!! Today I'm gonna create my New Year's Resolution. It's the first time i'm gonna put it in writing (albeit computerized) so I hope I'll be able to fulfill them...

Learn a new hobby... without the computer
I recently noticed that i've been pounding at my keyboard whenever I had the free time (updating blog... checking mail... playing games). This year I hope to learn a new hobby away from the computer, photography perhaps.

Raise my confidence
uh huh. My problem forever =( I feel i've improved a bit but there is probably more to it like turning my volume knob when I'm speaking and be able to say things that I'd like to say... Stop being misinterpreted...

Better use of money
It's not like I have not been able to save any money, It's about putting it into better investments that could yield me greater returns. I'd probably take some risks this year... will ask friend/family advice =D

Finally start a sideline
I've been telling myself that I'll start that sideline months or even years ago. I hope I could start it this year.... even a plan would be great, cause frankly I do not have any idea on what to do.

Learn to cook !!
Regarding food, there is only one thing I know, EAT. I'd want to learn to cook, even a few simple dishes would be great. This is a basic ability which I should have learned years back.

Lose Weight
This has been my last new year's resolution... and here I am again at it =P anyways last year I was @ 240 lbs and now I've trimmed down to 225 lbs not bad really. This time around I hope to trim down a little bit more =P 200 lbs perhaps....

Healthy living
I've been sleeping 6 hours a day for months now.... lagging on my exercise... and eating too much. Maybe I'll try sleeping at 9 PM, wake up 5:30 am, exercise and eat healthier foods =P

Be liked ?
Is this even something I could do..... Jan idiot !

Act like an adult
For the past months, I feel I've been acting like a child... just a feeling though... am i...?

Kinda ambitious I think... is it??? =D
