Wedding Recap

I’ll keep it short and sweet, ’cause i’m using my ipod and blogging here is a bitch.

I got hitched last january 29. The event itself was awesome!!! But the preparation was a god damn nightmare because the clothes for the entourage were only completed on the day itself!!!

Anyway, what’s done is done.

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who attended. Thanks for the gifts as well. Now i just have to figure out how to divert the cash we got to my secret psp2 fund hahaha!!! (of course i’m kiddind >_<)

We're currently at the manor hotel in baguio enjoying our honeymoon. The place is fucking awesome!

I guess that's all for now! Code monkey, signing off.

2010: The Year in Review

About two weeks too late…

The year in review is a staple to so called bloggers like me. You basically summarize the past 365 days in a couple of sentences (coherency is optional) and give some bullshit insight about how your life turned out. Think of it as ESPN Sports Center Highlights of your life.

So without further adieu, here’s the sum total of the codemonkey experience for 2010:

1. I started blogging again!

I don’t know why. I just god damn felt like it. So there.

2. I finally got a PS3!

Before graduating from college, I promised myself I’d get one. After four fucking years I finally did. The games are sell-your-liver expensive but the system is totally worth it. Especially because of MGS4, and the Uncharted Series.

3. I got a new Job!

Yup, last 2010, I switched companies. It was my first time doing so and didn’t know what to expect. How do I deal with the new culture, new officemates etc? Wait. I actually DID know what to expect. Whenever I’m pushed into a new environment, the same thing always happens; I go into fucking hermit mode for the first few weeks/months. When I’m new, I always come off as a shy person who has the social capacity equivalent to a man stranded on a deserted island for years and who finally gets rescued and introduced back into society.

Then after a few weeks I begin to feel at ease in my environment and start to participate (though awkwardly at first) in social situations. I don’t know why, but it always takes me a lot longer to be comfortable around new people compared to the rest of the human race. It’s like my very own useless mutant power.

4. I got Engaged

Yes. Me. Engaged. Who would have thought? This January 29, I’m going to be a married monkey. A lucky married monkey mind you (wink wink). The past couple of months, we’ve been preparing the wedding and I had no fucking clue that prepping for one would induce ginormous amounts of stress. My fiancĂ© (Gem, who’s always first to comment on this blog of mine and who will soon be known as Mrs. Codemonkey) and me had to worry about invitations, guest lists, seminars, marriage licenses (don’t get me started on the fucking retards in City hall) etc…

But its all worth it since I get to spend the rest of my life with the woman I love (naks naman!!!).

Also, I’d like to take this time to apologize to the people whom we didn’t get to invite to our upcoming nuptials. There are so many. We’re sorry =(. Its not that we don’t want you to be there. We just have a limited guest list.

It sucks not being rich.

So that’s my year in review. No bullshit insight for me thank you very much. So I’ll just end this post by saying; The year had some ups and downs but it was mostly ups. All in all, it was a fucking good year for me. The codemonkey is happy and all is right in the world. Huzzah!
