I’ve been biting my tongue since October and still counting the days.   I’m afraid that I might lose it since I’ve been holding my opinion for more than 2 months now.  If you know me well, you’d probably not going to believe it and it’s not really an easy thing for me to do.  And now I’ve decided to air my opinion here in my blog. 

I’ve been a loyal listener of Chico and Delamar’s The Morning Rush since 2002.  There were years that I’ve missed listening because of work schedule and I was swamped with work load.  I think it was 2006 when I finally got the chance to listen regularly again and finally I’ve got everything going for me on the show in 2007.

Anyway, this year 2011 Delle got pregnant and as loyal fan, I was really happy for her.  Then I’ve realized how I’m going to miss her when she finally takes her leave of absence.  And I didn’t realize how it’s going to affect my everyday life until the dreaded weeks of absence happened.  It was the perfect definition of horror for me; I didn’t get to listen to her voice, opinions for almost 9 weeks.  Don’t get me wrong, I equally love Chico and Delle, I really do!  But this is just a realization that I didn’t really expect.  I thought her absence can be compensated since Chico was left to do the show.

Actually the issue isn’t about missing Delle; it’s about missing the show, too.  When she left, the show took a turn that I tried to learn to love but unfortunately, it didn’t quite appeal to me.  (Sorry Chico, if you’re even going to read this 😥 it’s not you; it’s the other disc jockey that’s running the show.)  There were a lot of instances that I find that he was disrespectful of Chico.  The age jokes and remarks aren’t even funny at all.  Then he is a blabber mouth, he thinks he knows everything and forgets to respect other’s opinions.  If you’d notice it since he started to do the show with Chico the Top 10 segment were always late and exceeded the time.  I know there’s nothing wrong with airing opinions but some people tend to overdo it.  And unfortunately, he is one of them.  I didn’t find the show as funny as before because he is sarcastic more often than not.  Aside from that, he doesn’t even know how to play listeners’ request and everyone can attest to this.

When Delle came back and I’ve learned that the show will be a threesome, I’ve told myself that I’m listening because of two reasons only: one, its Chico and another is because of Delle.  I just hope that the management will realize this sooner than later before damage is done with the show.


Last Thursday Chico and Delamar announced on air that there will be a big revelation in the show on Friday 9 am.  This announcement got everyone thinking what kind of news it would be.  Then after few hours Delle started retweeting listeners’ speculation and I had to give in and join in the bandwagon.

Friday morning, an hour before the big revelation, Chico mentioned that he had posted about it on his blog (click here for the link)

And I was surprised that one of the clues Chico mentioned bearing keywords was my tweet.  Upon reading that I immediately tweeted them because I couldn’t imagine enduring weeks of no morning rush.  Just thinking about it is killing me already.

Then, here’s the funny thing, the hype of the listener’s speculation and the actual ‘big reveal’ had made it to the news.  And my tweet was mentioned since Chico made it as clue for the ‘big reveal’.  I wasn’t supposed to make it as a big deal but my twitter timeline went crazy for an hour.  I really find it funny and decided to make this as a filler post.  It’s like having a 10-second of fame on national television.  Here are screenshots of my timeline during the hype so you’d see how crazy and funny my twitter followers are.  I’ve also included the link of the news.  (Click it here)



Letting go is one of the hardest lessons in life.   It can be situations, things, memories, people and even yourself.  It’s easy to form an attachment with these things but letting go of these is another story.  There are many things that we have to learn for us to perfect the art of letting go.


Today’s Top Ten topic “Signs that you have to let go” on my favorite show The Morning Rush touched me badly.


I have been trying to control my feelings these past few weeks, something that I have learned from the past.  This is something that I am proud of. Some even say that I’m doing a great job, because if you really know me, you’d be surprised that I’m acting like nothing happened.


Maybe, I’m just tired of being emotional and lonely.  I just don’t find it necessary.  I feel it’ll be too much for me to give an additional time and my time need not be wasted.


I don’t actually hate the topic, in fact, I find the timing perfect.  I just feel it has opened something and I think the world is conspiring in a good way.


Why? First, because I know that everyone will agree with me on this that I deserve better. Second, there’s no point to wallow on small things, the world won’t end just because of that.  Third, Happiness is a Choice, and I’m choosing the smart ride.  I’d like to remain happy and hopeful.  Lastly, and I strongly believe that even CRAPPY days end.  Better days are so on its way.  I just feel it.


So I guess it’s really time for me to start anew.


I’ve got a great list of friends (mental check),

the positive attitude (mental check),

the love (mental check),

and the hope (mental check).


Well flood isn’t a new thing to me since I came from a university that is notoriously synonymous to flood… and typhoon Ondoy is another story to tell.

Weirdly, I have this very different point of view as always… I somehow enjoyed it a little because I was able to get to know more of rusher friends as I may say.

Anyway, everything was really fine not until we were forced to go out of megamall since it was already closing…

Fortunately my office is within the area and we crashed there for a while and I called up hotels but unfortunately all are fully booked…

So we took the chance to check cheap motels and luckily we’ve got a good deal though there were no reservations (high risk I may say) and it’s too early for us to go there since the overnight rates start @ around 8pm.

Sadly they really can’t reserve us rooms but they gave an assurance that there are lots of rooms available so we decided to eat dinner first since most of us are really hungry that time.

Lo and behold we got there… only to find out that all rooms were booked…

And we were able to check the whole strip and after 4 other motels we finally got the chance to get 5 rooms since we were 10 and they wouldn’t allow extra person in the room. (strict si manong pang 2 pax lang daw) he even rejected two (2) females with a baby since bawal daw ang babies sa motel) I know he’s really out of his mind.

Bad trip lang kasi with manong is he wouldn’t accommodate us kasi mabilis syang maattract ng may kotse I just have to tell him constantly… manong kami nauna dyan dapat first in muna… buti kalmado pa ako ng konti.

Anyway, again as I’ve said, sometimes, i’m really weird because I actually enjoyed the night, the challenge to get the rooms and all other fun memories na well documented

Thanks to Merski, Gab, Oscar, Caramello, Stephen , Rhix & hubby, Selwyn and Benjai for spending the night and this experience with me… until the next EB…
