My Tatay

Where is tatay?

Very clever shot. Tatay is hidden talaga. EB at Gerry’s Grill.

And look how serious we were on the first pic. Hahaha

Love u tatay! :) Miss u te melai! At ingat sa pagbalik dyan sa gitnang silangan pakner!


I forgot to put this one kaya singit ko na…

Nakausap ko rin pala si itay kanina! Hahahaha… Nakakatuwa sobra!!!!!!!!

Yun lang 😉


Speaking of tatay…

I had a serious talk with my (biological) dad last night during dinner. I told him everything about my love-hate relationship with accounting. I told him how much I want to leave the corporate world and how much I want my life to be simple and stress-free. I told him that had it not for my mom, I would have taken up a different course, etc. etc.

He asked me what I’m doing every night and why I stay up late. I told him about my online life and all. I told him that I am planning to enroll this coming November and I will shift professions.

And guess what??

He said yes!

I love my dad!!!

Naiiyak ako while writing this down. It’s different when you’ve made a decision and your parent(s) is supporting it 100%. I know how much they (my parents, esp. my dad) want a CFO for a daughter. I can’t. I really can’t. I’m not cut out for it. I probably can but I don’t want to. I want to live a bit longer than my mom. I don’t want to die early and not do the things I want to do. And doing accounting for another 5 years or so will kill me. No exaggeration.

I always tell my siblings (when my dad’s fast asleep already) that they need to relieve me of all my duties (financial mostly) when I turn 30. That would be by next year, August 2008. I need to have some time for myself and I believe I should start when I reach the big 3-0. I will travel anywhere I want to, I will do things I dare not try to because I have responsibilities, I will go someplace else and get to know ME a bit more.

This is one of the happiest days of my life :)

Wishin’ and hopin’

Obviously, for those who’ve seen me already, I’m not a weight-conscious person. I am comfortable with who I am. I am confident that people won’t look at me physically, but would rather accept me for who I really am. Of course there are some people who will be different than the rest and I can’t help that anymore. I know for a fact that I can’t please everybody.

BUT there are times when I wish I am someone else. When insecurities would surface and make me want to be different from who I am.

He’s here right now. I just talked to him last night. APS… Hay… baket ngaun pa?? Hindi na lang sa 2008?? And I’ll see him this weekend. He wants to see me tomorrow night but I said sa weekend na lang. :(


Before I started with BlogtoProfit (BTOP), I was wary of online money-making programs because I was thinking that it might be a scam or something. Until I was told by the Devilicious Queen that some are legitimate and she’s already making money out of it. She referred me to BTOP and has since applied, got approved and enjoyed (and made money from) all the programs I am enrolled with.

A couple of days ago, I got an offer to do freelance work for another writer. It’s mostly article rewriting. I didn’t take the offer because I realized that I don’t have time for it anymore. I’m normally wasted (read: cranky and irritable) in the morning mainly because I am a night person and I stay up late (til around 2am) every night. Taking the offer would mean I probably need to stay awake until 3 or 4am to finish the work. I can’t afford that. I need to be at the office around 10am.

It’s not a lot of money actually but then it’s a start and it might translate to a long-term business relationship with the writer.

So now I am wishing that I have more time to blog and less time for accounting hehe


You might be thinking that I haven’t visited your blogs for a long time now and yes, it’s true. I was busy with my other blog, making money and all. I was also moody the past couple of days and I normally don’t comment on posts when I don’t feel like it. I gather it would be much better to stay put and not bloghop until my sanity comes back.

And a couple of hours from now it’ll come back :)

Happy Monday everyone! Payday weekend this coming Sat and Sun, yipee!!!


Shen has been my friend for over 15 years now. We became classmates in second year high school. We became friends, a part of a big group actually. We’re still friends until now. Hopefully for the rest of our lives.

Recently, we went to Trinoma to catch up with what’s happening in our lives. » Read more


I had a chance to chat with my girl friends, Che, Jing and Shen last April 29, after Tim’s wedding reception at the Coconut Palace. We were catching up on the events in each other’s lives and it was fun.

Che is now a registered nurse working at the Orthopedic Hospital. Her husband is working as well and their son, Von, is now 6 years old. Che is working so hard because her mother in law will finance her application to the US after a year. Che has a soft spot for the elderly. And she’ll be a very good nurse for those people because she’s naturally a caring person.

Jing is now working for Samsung Electronics. This girl has two kids already and you wouldn’t even believe it! She’s so sexy and fab! :)

Shen, on the other hand, has been my topic in this post.

We all chatted the night away at Coffee Bean in Banawe. We waited for Che to get off her shift and we went our way past 1am.

It’s always fun to spend time with close friends, especially with your barkada.

Ocean’s Thirteen and PMS

I am so lazy for the past 3 days now. I can’t think properly and I’m always craving for something sweet or salty. Yesterday, my lunch consisted of a chocolate bar. Last night, I was craving for Yakisoba. This morning, I was thinking of champorado with lots of milk. PMSy, I know.


I am very excited to watch Ocean’s Thirteen! I love George Clooney! And Matt Damon! It’s raining men in that movie! Hehehe… Who’d come with me ha? :)

Hi and Hello

I’m fine now. I slept almost the whole day yesterday. Nakabawi na rin sa tulog. I still owe some people something I’ve promised, and I will do that within the next few days. Sorry, running on low batteries right now :(

For those visiting, it wouldn’t hurt to say hi and hello thru my tagboard or if you’re feeling generous, maybe leave a comment on one of my posts. I would really appreciate it.

Adik is sick!

Because I am too addicted to blogging and have been busy configuring this site for a couple of days now, I am currently sick. My world is on a different angle right now. I cannot look down or stay for a long time in front of the pc because I get this extreme headaches (naliliyo in Tagalog, I think).
But I will still bloghop but not too much.
To those I’ve promised to do one thing or another, I will do it within the week, sorry.

And the blogging continues…

I have been contemplating getting my own domain for the past few weeks now. But due to budget constraints, it took me sometime to be able to finally get one.

I paid for this domain last May 10th. Due to too much kaartehan on my part, I found a theme I like after days of searching and testing. And then I changed it again! Hahaha. Oh well, you know me. I will still be blogging at akoni from time to time. I cannot leave it so easily. I love that blog so much I almost have gotten a .info domain. Plus, I have more than enough paid posts that’s needed to be done and it’ll all be posted there.

By the way, you might be asking why “Sasha says…”? I’ve been talking about my life and everything related to it online for the past 3 years now. So when I was thinking of a domain name, I thought I should get something related to my personality. And talking to people, strangers included, is something inherent in me. Something I cannot change. Thus, the domain name 😉

I’ve merged both my blogspot and akoni posts here so when you dig into my archives, you’d find posts from both sites.

I’ve added a “What’s Hot on the Web?” page for updates on what’s the latest craze going on in the web. This is for my blogger friends and visitors who are lazy to search for these news. This will mostly be about problogging, improving site ranks, and the like.

Thanks to BigSkyMedia for the affordable hosting plans, Blog to Profit for the income I received with the referral fee that I used to pay for this domain, Cess for asking me about bandwidth and webspace and making me all excited about a new domain of my own and for suggesting this domain name.Thanks as well to ate Nalen aka Manilenya for telling me about BigSkyMedia during our EB. To Karen, Wendy, Mousey Ju and Ate Neng for the brainstorming. Hahaha. To kuya Br. Vince who told me all about the terms I am not familiar with. To Ferdz for patiently answering my questions.And most of all… to ate Ghee for being kind enough to let me continue blogging at akoni for a while until this site’s rank become stable.

And more…

Please visit my subhosted friends… Mousey. And soon to open >> Wendy and Ate Neng.

Welcome to my new home friends! I hope you get something out of visiting this place.
