PRUE HALLIWEL ::: OBSERVER OF LIFE

i don't want to get to the end of my life and find that i have just lived the length of it... i want to also have lived the width of it as well... smiling when the sun rises... dreaming until the sun hides... but for now, i'm letting go... and this goodbye isn't just a new start... it confirms my submission to waiting... while searching...

who am i?

sourced this from the site of a new buddy from the office, alex... and i must say that i am awed at how this bloggy stuff can be 90% accurate... or perhaps just dreaming and wishing? hmmm... maybe not...

here goes...

What PRUE'S REAL NAME Really Means

You are fair, honest, and logical. You are a natural leader, and people respect you.
You never give up, and you will succeed... even if it takes you a hundred tries.
You are rational enough to see every part of a problem. You are great at giving other people advice.

You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are influential and persuasive. You tend to have a lot of power over people.
Generally, you use your powers for good. You excel at solving other people's problems.
Occasionally, you do get a little selfish and persuade people to do things that are only in your interest.

You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.
Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.
Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.
You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.


P.S.

i would have embedded the code but... hehehe... it obviously reveals my real name and that's something i really don't want to do for personal reasons, of course, and let's just say - for security purposes na rin... hahaha... as if may stalker...

anyway, if anybody's interested to find out what their name has to say about their personality, just go to http://www.blogthings.com/whatsyournameshiddenmeaningquiz/...

this muna until prue has organized her ilocos archive... hehehe!

pakikiramay...

baka gusto niyong makiramay sa akin... kasi... poooooooooooottttaaaahhhhhh!!!

aaaaaaaarrrrraaaay!!! namatayan ako ng kuuukoooooo... at mula sa pagudpud hanggang dito sa manila, kumikirot pa rin siya... i stopped taking dolfenal for the pain for belief na hindi na siya sasakit but no... ang kiiirrroooot ng laman... i did continue taking amoxicillin though...

patawad.... alam ko gross... pero shiiiiiiiiittt talaga... akala ko kasi hindi siya namatay... it didn't really turn black... just gray... but very off the usual pinkish toenails... oh well, i don't actually know if it's suppose to turn black kaagad or kung talagang after a period of time pa... really at that time, i don't even know kung patay nga ba yung nail ko or na-trauma lang... first time eh... at hindi siya masarap na feeling ha para sa first time... potah naman talaga po... gaaaahd!!!

sige... go... takbo sa shore... sige harutan daw sa pampang... ayun, as if naman napaka-flexi ko at napakataas ng angat ng paa ko kapag humahakbang eh halos hilahin ko nga lang ang paa ko lalo pa't masakit na sa kakatakbo...

i tripped over a small bato... actually hindi maliit, malaki... nakabaon lang kaya may nakausli... ang kasamaang palad, yung 2nd daliri (katabi ng hinlalaki... don't know what's it called...) ko sa kanang paa ang pinaka-nasabit... next thing i know, i was already dancing 'skip to my loo' dahil sa sobrang sakit... and whoa, pagtingin ko sa daliri ko sa paa, pakiramdam ko nawalan din ako ng dugo sa ulo...

gray na gray na ang kuko ko at namamaga ang daliri... don't worry... i have no plans of posting pics ng na-trauma kong toe... hahaha... oa na... super gross.... but i did take pictures for a lasting remembrance of my pagudpud kagagahan...

Oh God... Lord... please... please please please talaga... please let the new nail grow back kaagad... i love sandals... i've collected flip flops even... you know naman na bihirang bihira ko isuot ang aking mga sapatos at rubber shoes... sandals guy ako di ba... flip flops here and there even in the office...

unless gusto mo akong magpa-bazarre ng sapin sa paa...

sheeeeeeet talaga... until now, hindi naman siya nangingitim but i was really anxious to find out bakit siya kumikirot... so medyo kinuha ko si nipper... silip lang... Diyos ko po... naka-angat na pala si kuko ko... kaya naman pala gray na kasi hindi na siya nakadikit sa laman... hello... may logic naman ako... obviously, if it's the case, wala ng buhay si kuko ko... hindi pa lang nangingitim but surely, it's dying na...

God naman eh... ikaw naman eh... tatapikin mo lang ako, ganito pa... sana naman God binatukan mo na lang ako... kinurot sa singit... o kaya piningot sa tenga... did you really just want to call my attention... warn me of some sort... bait naman ako dun sa pagudpud ah... Godm ang pait nito ha, masaklap... napakasakit na pangyayari... natatawa na lang ako ha... ikaw God ha, you really always have a way of calling my attention... kapag gusto mo akong pagalitan o pagsabihan... naman eh... patay na kuko talaga ang binigay mo sa akin...

alam ko na kung bakit... sabi ni doc, 2 months after pa mamatay ang ugat... by then, pwde na bunutin... and then another two months for the new nail to fully grow back and replace the old... so malamang mga 4-5 months... waaaaaaaaaaahhh!!!

God ha... madali ba akong makalimot sa mga pangaral mo, hindi naman ah... talagang paaalalahanan mo ako ng paaalalahanan through my patay na kuko na... para sa tuwing makikita ko siya, i'll be reminded to behave... hmp! i was mabait... just that i gave my heart away again... was it really that bad?

God ha... serious ako.. nagpapanic ako... patay na kuko ito noh... naman eh... naiiyak ako talaga... at talagang kung kelan pa ako babalik na sa work saka pa... waaaaaah... mukha tuloy akong timang dito sa blog...

nabaliw dahil sa patay na kuko... mas maganda ata kung... hmmm... nagbigti ng dahil sa patay na kuko... hindi nakayanan ang lungkot na idinulot ng patay na kuko kaya sinabayan na sa libing ang patay na kuko... waaaaaaaah...

imbes tuloy na bugshots ng magandang paraiso at pag-ibig ang pinopost ni prue, hindi ko mapaghandaan... hindi ko ma-upload pa sa iphoto... eh kasi dalawang araw na akong nakatitig sa kanang paa ko... hoping na maaawa siya sa akin at bubuhayin niya si kuko...

pero wala... kailangan ko nang isuko ang pag-asa ko... coz dear friends, ive already cut part of it... to let it breathe... the rest of it will have to wait when the roots have dried as well... until then, my almost 25 pairs of sandals of sandals and flip flops ay pagpapahingahin ko muna...

haaaaaaaaay nakuuuuuu!!!

P.S.

lessons learned...

1. bawal talaga ata ang masyadong masaya... may kapalit... in my case, buhay nga ang puso ko, namatay naman ang kuko ko...

2. kapag medyo lampa at tanga at hindi naman talaga agile, wag nang makipaghabulan sa kaulayaw... marami namang pwedeng lambingan... pwede namang nakinig na lang ng kantang "moonlight kiss" sa ipod habang hinihintay si sunset at humindig sa balikat eh... (eh kasi naman, nagawa na namin yun... hihihihi!)

3. naaaaakuu naman... at ngayon ko lang narealize, lagi ko naman bitbit ang aking speedo footwear kapag out of town ako lalo pa't beach dahil nga nag-iingat ako sa masakit na bato at para secured talaga ang paa ko from anything and everything... at dala ko siya sa pagudpud ha... bakit naman hindi ko siya naisuot ng mga oras na iyon... kung kailan naman talaga ako magtatakbo... naku naman... ok ok ok, mabuhay lang si kuko ulit... sinusumpa ko, never na akong pupunta sa shore ng hindi yun ang suot ko... super trauma na talaga... napakatanga ko...

haaaaaaay nakuuuuuu... na-stress ako bigla... will go to the parlor now... after all, tipid na ako sa pedicure... kulang na ako ng isang kuko... discounted na dapat... puuuuuuunnnyyeeeeeetttttaaaaaaa!!! hahahahaha!

swept by pagudpud...

ok... ok... where's the pagudpud frenzy on this blog? yeah... i have not shared anything yet... and that's because i was... BACK TO PAGUDPUD!

yup... read that pretty right... i went back to pagudpud... in a flash... in a snap... spur of the moment thing... 3 days after my return to manila, i was agitated... feeling uneasy... something was both pulling and pushing me to pack my stuff and take the 10 hour ride again to my new 'nearest farthest' paradise...

the plan was to wash off my pagudpud hay moments but after two days of city life, i was (in a good way...) unbalanced, restless and frantic...

i felt i left half of myself in pagudpud... my heart, my soul, my mind... all were torn apart... hence, my disconcerted self... and the nice thing about it is... all were in a good way... lol!

oh gahd... whatever happened... i was beautifully tormented to take back whatever part of me i left there... by the sparkling sands... under pagdupud sun and moon... where habagat and amihan meet... someone wasn't aware he was already owning me... never meant... but it happened...

it was unexpected... yet, i surrendered... yotninam... ukininam... as the ilokanos would express it... hahaha!

five days after, prue's back to her usual urban time... i did reclaim my full mind and body... but not sure if my heart is marrying with my sensible senses... that is something i will have to see through the coming days...

my sanity has managed to escape my attention... and so does the wity turning to foolish... i may be struck with the one thing i tried to avoid... incidental? accidental? nah... perhaps magical...

P.S.

pagudpud... where i felt love... fell in love... wanting to make love (as if... prue's pure trip remains... the last line is somewhat just an expression to emphasize the feeling... hahaha! tama na kasi ang pagka-defensive prue eh... hahaha!)

haaaaaay... yup, i know... it's baduy... hahaha! we all turn baduy when the big L strikes...

and to make it even more baduy, let me say this... this moment, i feel i still left my heart in pagudpud... bahala na...

MORE PAHABOL: reposting piper's recent entry about me...

where's the prue gone?


few hints why prue is not blogging lately.....

"Hay naku bff, pumunta ka dito sa pagudpod! I promise you. You'll fall in love and you'll feel loved that you would want to make love over and over again!

on a separate conversation....

"Gusto ko lang sabihin na ngayon lang ako nakakita ng ganito kadaming buko na nagliliparan! May bagyo ata!"

Piper: May bagyo nga, tangeks! Karen ang pangalan! Sinuspend na nga classes dito noh!

"Ganun? Anong signal? signal number pag-ibig???"

Waaaahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!

bound for pagudpud...

making the most of my vacation... and so after the island of camiguin... next dwell is another paradise of pristine white sand and crystal blue waters...

PAGUDPUD of Ilocos Norte...

and this time, no plane... no ferry ride... Prue will rough it a bit and will board the sleeper bus...

on the road to Boracay of the North...








P.S.

as i've heard, the longest contiguous shore can be found in Pagudpud... beach after beach after beach... hmmmm... well, my legs are all ready for the adventure... after all, like camiguin, it's my virgin visit to the province... Olah!

camiguin captivates...

so i don't bore anybody of my usual verbal diarrhea, i produced an mtv out of the snapshots i had of camiguin... simple dissolves though... nothing fancy... reduced quality due to conversion...

in any case, here's bringing you the island's wonders...
