First Time

Last month, I was so busy completing all the requirements I needed; like pictures, business attire, stockings, shoes, makeups, makeup brushes, printing my CV and cover letter. Why? It's because I'm applying in a position of Flight Attendant for a famous international airline!

When I was in gradeschool, I was the tallest of the class.  My classmates would tease me as "kapre" because of my height.  But for my ninang and my lola, they were envisioning something for me.  They originally wanted me to become a flight stewardess.  Back then, I really didn't care with my look, with my posture, with my girly manners.  I was like tomboy-ish, that's why I said no, I want to be an engineer. O diba? Lalaking lalaki.  Then I thought of being an architect, a graphic artist, a programmer, then I ended up being a NURSE.  I love being a nurse, actually. Maybe because it was a challenging job and I got to take care and interact with the patients -- and doctors.  Well, anyways..

I tried to take a shot of the recruiters, but failed
One day, as I was chatting with my former classmate in college, she told me about FA,  telling me stories like how did she get in, what were her preparations, and of course, SALARY! :)  So, I decided to give it a shot, it'll not harm me, right? :)

Open day. Sunday morning.  The event starts at 9 a.m. in the morning at a certain hotel here in Manila.  I woke up early and prepared early.  I had my make-up and hair done, my blouse ironed, my shoes shined, ate breakfast, and headed to the hotel.  Before I left, I prayed that hopefully, everything will be alright and I won't make any mistakes.  I was so nervous.  As I went in the hotel, I saw some beautiful, tall, and neat girls all dressed like me - business attire suites. All of them are so pretty that I felt intimidated, but I told myself not to because I need to have enough confidence for me to get this job.

I just arrived from a date with my lola at SM Mall of Asia, where our favorite place to be every Monday or Tuesday (or depending on my offs). Since she, as a senior citizen, always has a free movie pass in Mall of Asia Cinema, I convinced her to watch "Unknown" (para libre!) LOL :D, because when it was just only in trailers, I got very curious to watch it (and it's Liam Neeson, thinking it would be not be a waste). I wasn't wrong.

GLEE's "Silly Love Songs" episode

In commemoration of St. Valentine (with a love bow and arrow), this episode of GLEE is about love, infidelity, loving someone who you can't get over with, love that's way TOO cheesy, loving someone without even considering his/her physical attributions, ASIAN love, love that makes you sing, and love of yourself. LOVE, LOVE, and... LOVE.

So, the episode started Puck staring at Lauren Zizes, staring like he's in love with Lauren. That's kinda cute because knowing Puckerman with his good looks and manly charms, he ends up madly in love with a Fat Bottom Girl, Lauren. <3 "You can't choose love, love chooses you." :)

And here's Finn. Argh! I hate him in this episode. He's kinda like self-conceited or something. Well, since the superbowl intricate went successful halftime performance that lead Quinn kissing Finn, he is certain to kiss Quinn again and feels that "Firework". He thinks he could kiss all the girls in the school except Quinn, so he set up a kissing booth to kiss Quinn. Well, they end up kissing with all the "pakipot" thing of Quinn.

Mike Chang <3 Tina and Brittany <3 Artie are the most lovable lovebirds in this episode. Artie serenades and Mike danced for them by the song  PYT (Pretty Young Thing), originally by Michael Jackson.

Glee's Superbowl Halftime

Here it is! The most awaited episode (again) of GLEE! Well, after their last episode "A Very Glee Christmas", they had their season break! Gosh, my long wait is over!! :)

This episode titles "The Sue Sylvester Shuffle." This episode tells about uniting the Glee Club New Directions and McKinley High's Football Titans. Okay, so the feud between them started when glee club was established.  The football team thinks being in glee makes you gay or dumb or stupid. They pour glee members slushees (like 7-11's slurpee). or throw them to their lockers and stuff. But this time, Mr. Schuester and Coach Beiste agreed to have the two teams, united.

The Cheerios
The episode started with a 'BANG."  Literally. It was a hot, steamy performance by the Cheerios (which Sue thinks it was a crap). The cheerios danced Katy Perry's "California Girls," and they were all in blue wig (just like Katy Perry's music video), and there were bicycles and fires even a sparking boobies ;).

Half-time performance
A local football championship game takes place and the "Thriller" mash-up is performed during the halftime show. Will and Coach Beiste plan to get the glee club and the Titans to work together and Sue does everything she can to make sure she clinches Nationals again.

Okay. So this would be first blog. I really don't want to create one because I think it be would such a waste of time writing stuff about anything and everything. But, here I am. Trying what it's like to be in a blogger world. I'm not a writer, but not that I hate writing. It's just that I want to be confined in my own solidary, simple world.

About me, well, I am Maria Paula Buencochillo. I'm usually called as "Pola", "Pau-Pau", "Marla."

I created this blog to express what I feel and thought on things, many things. May it be a place, food, fashion, politics, emotions, etc. anything.

I don't really intend to publish this but whoever may get to read this, pardon.. :)
