I Want XP not Vista

It's my second day installing Windows XP to my new laptop. Alas, it is still not working. I also tried installing Linux, but it also failed. :( Why does the manufacturers of new laptops adhere to the vision of using only Vista? They don't even add support for drivers for XP anymore. Boo.

Bonus Gone in a Day

Today, I together with my family, watched "Tanging-Ina .." to support the annual  Manila Film Festival.  Normally I only watch a Tagalog film once a year, just like today. After that we went to a computer/electronic shop to buy my new laptop eventhough my bonus is not enough. Luckily, the price from my last canvass is now discounted by not buying the bundled OS. Then, we ate after at Kenny Roger's Roasters restaurant. That's how I got my bonus gone in a day. Next topic: Why can't I install Windows XP in my new Laptop? :P

It has been two weeks that I and other friends, colleagues has been celebrating christmas parties. Tonight was the company's christmas party and I think my last for this year. :p Congratulation to Glen, Mayang and Gabrielle, together with other co-groups for bagging a place in the war of presentations. I did not stay long to dance with other ropponggi-bar-hoppers and dance-addicts :p, because I am already tired and not feeling well. Sayang. Yabbe.

A Christmas Song in Japanese

雙子公主之Merry Chirmas大合唱.mp3 - Christmas Song I was doing my morning stumble when I heard this christmas song sung in Japanese. Omoshiroi. I think the singers were from the morning children show in NHK.

Baby, Don't You Break My Heart

Baby, Dont You Break My Heart Slow - Vonda Shepard This is an old sad song from Vonda Shepard. Bab, Don't You Break My Heart Slow I like the way you wanted me Every night for so long baby I like the way you needed me Every time things got rocky I was believing in you Was i mistaken Do you say, do you say what you mean? I want our love to last forever But i'd rather you be mean than love and lie I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye I'd rather take a blow at least then i would know But baby don't you break my heart slow I like the way you'd hold me Every night for so long baby And i like the way you'd say my name In the middle of the night While you were sleeping I was believing in you Was i mistaken Do you mean, do you mean what you say? When you say our love could last forever (chorus) But i'd rather you be mean than love and lie I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye I'd rather take a blow at least then i would know Bu

Toki No Ashioto (時の足音)

Another great music from Kobukuro, which is also my new favorite. This song was used in the Oh! My Girl! jdrama. Kobukuro - Toki No Ashioto Wakare no kisetsu ni yureru Hakanaki ichirin ka Onaji nukumori no kaze wo Daremo ga sagashite aruiteru Deai wa sore ni nagareru Oboro gumo no shita de Kasanari au tokei no hari no you ni Yukkuri to yukkuri to yukkuri to Mawari hajimeru Mijikai hari ga kimi nara Nagai hari ga boku de Onaji jikan wo kizami nagara Nandomo sure chigai mata deai Aruku hohaba wa chigatte mo Egaku mirai ga onaji nara Daijoubu mata onaji basho kara hajimerareru kara Ganbatta kedo dame datta ne Makechatta kedo kakko yokatta ne Ironna tane wo moratta Kotoba ga kokoro ni mizu wo yaru Mijikai haru ni saku yume Nagai fuyu wo koete Kokoro no oku ni Atsumeta tane wa Donna hikari de sodatsu no darou Hokodou no kage ni saku hana Dare no tame ni aru no darou Dare no tame demo nai yoto kagayaku Kimi ni terasareteru Omoi ga kotoba ni kawaru yo Kotoba ga hikari wo yonderu Hika

Next Goal: Onsen

Another activity I haven't done in Japan is going to an Onsen. This picture below is a mini-Onsen for the feet of train passengers in front of Kinugawa-onsen Eki (Station). If only I had extra time, I would have tried this before going home. Anyway there are still many Onsen places available out there, just like the feature in the recent Metropolis magazine (November 21 Issue). I shall conquer this with my next trip (someday ...), even if no one will join me. :p [This is what you call realizing your dreams]
