Seminar at NCCC Mall of Davao

July 5, 2008 Saturday:
Yesterday, (bale July 4) I’m happy to receive an information from Cesar Noel about the seminar to be held July 5, Saturday around 1:00pm to 7:00pm since it was Saturday afternoon it was 90% sure I can attend although on the back of my mind I have 10% of saying “not to attend” as I want to reserve energy for Sunday at Calvary which is my first time to attend too.

Anyway, going back to the main topic: Seminar at NCCC Mall of Davao 4th floor AmpiTheater or is it 1st floor activity center?
Which is which! In that witch I mean which (^_^) gave me the feeling of “high in ecstasy of excitement to falling from Mt. Apo”

Here’s what happen: maaga pa lang, I was really excited to go to NCCC Mall of Davao I made it assure that most of my officemates will attend para bibo and I told them thru chat will text you on my smart sim number, I told them I used it occasionally because this is the SMART SIM I used way back in college when I was so active in activities since all of the members are using SMART SIM they would prefer to text same network because of unlimited service.
(hindi ko binili etong super sim3 from SMART, I wish to have a SMART SIM for peer counselor’s, then all of the sudden SMART text me on my Globe number, that “I have one SMART super SIM3 since am one of the loyal subscribers of Globe (more than 5yrs) they are asking my full address and the SIM will be mailed, hesitant of course, I didn’t gave them our home address instead I gave them mailbox address in our school, (since I was an officer at our university parati ako nasa Guidance Office I will know if there are new mails before they post the names)

Going back again in the seminar: wahahaha! NCCC Mall of Davao
So ayon na nga! Morning of July 5, I communicate with officemates… most of them replied back saying they will attend, and one which is more excited than me na parang pareho kami sobrang excited he told me he will surely attend, ayon! I was so happy yey! Madami kaming a-attend. I ate my breakfast around 9:30am para hindi na ako mag-lunch kasi malayo yun NCCC Mall of Davao Ma-a siya, from our house almost one 45mins yun byahe so dapat aalis ako 12noon para makarating ako at least 12:30 kung hindi traffic
I came there around 12:30, before hand I already received a text asking me “Sis, where is the venue here” I replied “sa taas 4th floor un parang convention hall mag elevator ka para madali and please reserve sit na for me please I’m now on my second jeep I will be there in 10mins time” he didn’t replied…
then malapit na ako NCCC Mall of Davao, I received Cesar text asking if me and the officemates are going, I replied him “nan dito na nga ako yah and yes sure sila attend”

Nan doon na nga ako NCCC Mall of Davao so I text my officemate “I’m here at chowking 1st floor san kana, did you saw the venue?” he replied “puntahan kita dyan” I was surprise telling myself “WHAT!!! anong puntahan, bakit mo ako pupuntahan dapat naka register kana at least para mayron kana ma reserve na sit” but instead I replied him “ok w8tn d2”
Siguro 1min lang he was there in front of me telling asking “sis, I really can’t find it, san bah talaga?” so I was very sure where it was kasi its really not my first time to attend on seminar at NCCC Mall of Davao,

He told me while we were walking that, you see the last time I attended seminar sa 4th floor man yun siya, pero lahi ra gyud karon bah” nasa elevator na kaming dalawa I text my other officemates I’m now going to the venue nasa NCCC Mall of Davao asking them where they are…etc… may nag reply, “san bah talaga venue?” hindi muna ako nag reply not until I will be there at the venue to be sure, nasa 4th floor na nga kami waa! To my surprise, I told him, iba lagi ang itchura dari, anong nangyari dito Parang iba lagi,

So anyway padayon lang gyapon kami, nakita ko yun place it was empty! Nothing was there except 3 guards asking us “where are you going mam /sir?” so I replied right away “sa Seminar yun Cyber Expo” the guard replied “oh its on the 1st floor sa activity center” I thought “ngee! Activity center nakita ko yun ha magulo doon maingay, anong seminar doon gagawain?!”

then my friend replied “sure siya doon gagawain parang wala man upoan doon” tapos nag reply yung guard “actually I really don’t think there was seminar there, kasi contest of games yun, 50pesos entrance then you can win 25k to 100k prizes” my thoughts were “waaa ganon!!!”

I replied him “sure kasi ako na seminar yun attendnan namin baka may iba pang place dito na venue for that” the guard replied “I really don’t know ma’am NO information for that we all know the event will be July 4 to 7 it was just gaming contest and nothing more”
So umalis nalang kaming dalawa, while walking we talked “baka hindi ngayon yung date or baka maling mall yung na post doon etc…”
We went to 3rd floor go around the whole 3rd floor of NCCC Mall of Davao hanggang dulo wala talagang NO venue for that
Punta ulit ng 2nd floor wala parin
Until we were there at 1st floor at activity center again!, we observe and look at the area inikot talaga naming dalawa, I asked him with a smile “care to play games” and he replied with laugh “waa! Wla ko plano nalagot na ko” I told him “ako din actually deep inside me I felt like falling from Mt. Apo bah excited bya ko ka’ayo ganina tapos ano man eto oi ang gulo ha!” and he replied “ako pud murag waaa!” he even describe thru actions how his excitement was drop dead!

Until such we looked for a place to sit ended up at the food court. I communicate with my officemates dami ko nang na receive na text messages I didn’t reply right away gusto ko ma sure muna bago ako mag reply, they were asking where I was, san yun venue etc… pupunta na sila,

so I replied one by one, “nah! Walay klaro dari oi, naa ko food court kita tayo dito usap nalang tayo personal” there at the food court we all talked joking around about the venue and the seminar “baka un 3D painting at wall kasi yung 4th floor ngayon under-renovation baka yun ang seminar how to pain in 3D at wall since it was all bare!” tapos “yung alikabok doon CMS na yun ang gagawain Code for Drupal, Joomla and WordPress, mao na to siya”

waaa!!! we were laughing our nuisance away to calm ourselves then one said “charge to experience! Hindi na gyud ko ani bah makalagot charge to experience gyud ni” I just told them actually I’m texting Cesar now “wait lang ta” me and Cesar argued at text he said “sa 4th floor lang ice katong dati gud AmpiTheater” hindi na ako nag reply kasi nainis ako tapos I receive another text from cesar saying “nan dito pala ako sa G/F sa may jollibee kita tayo dito” someone joke around, then I replied a joke “unsa na siya mag seminar ta jollibee! Tapos libre merrienda?!”
I asked them punta daw tayo jollibee? They replied “nah doon na kami galing bah wla baya,
An officemate text me saying “he is now at jollibee kausap niya cesar wla pa man daw start yun seminar hintayin matapos un games”

Waa! Noon nalaman ng mga kasamahan ko hintayin matapos un games all of them wanted “NOT to GO anymore” because it was very clear 1pm then what time na! its almost 2:30pm, ako din naiinis narin walay klaro!...

so I text cesar about what my insights was, close narin kami to tell each other honestly, what cesar did was to call my mobile, he told me “punta nalang lagi doon bah kay naa lagi seminar, sabi ko walay klaro, sabi niya, klaro lagi naa na baya si Ria dito, sa akoa isip “well I really don’t see any sits or any banner that says seminar it only says GAMING Contest!”
So I told cesar “text mo nalang where kami punta kasi maingay I can’t hear you well” so he text me… I told that to my officemates, what will be our decisions, one says I want to go to the movies, the other says mamasyal nalang kami oi saying oras, then another says “hay nah nahulog gyud ako sa expectations ko hindi ko akalain ganito excited pa naman ako” I replied same here wala pa akong lunch kasi sobrang excited 9:30am baya ako last kumain

Some officemates at the 1st floor telling me meron daw pero hindi pa nag start… last decision was mine they were waiting what will be our moves…

so I trusted my instinct and said “tara! Kausapin ko muna Cesar personal para magkaintindihan, Lets give him one chance tara! Tingnan natin kung ano bah talaga tapos kung wala gyud malaman man yan sa estorya namin ni Cesar then we can all go where we want to go tara! Dali, baba nalang muna tayo”

So there nagkita kami ni Cesar, medyo nakasimangot gyud siya ai, ako man din ganon mukha, pero I told myself “temper temper control your temper its really not Cesar’s fault he is not even the organizer” I kept telling that to myself because I really don’t want to blame Cesar for anything and I definitely want to control the words that will go out of my mouth since my temper is really high and we are on public place and again it is NOT Cesar’s Fault.

I let Cesar talk first, listen and ask him few question, then I looked at my officemates sense if they are also listening to Cesar, since I sense there are little bit of chance about 30% they really wanted to see the Seminar, I said to Cesar “sige kung papasok kami ngayon dito bale may upuan talaga doon walang bayad or anything then may Seminar gyud?” he said “yes tanawa nalang, naa na didto sila Ma’am Ivy” I replied “sige ok pasok na kami yah ha”, and I also text my other officemates I’m at the “venue”, now waiting to start.

But I receive a feedback saying “the place is really inappropriate for seminar it's really noisy ha! Ano mag sabi muna na to all gamers please be silent may seminar ganon?” ako ay natawa sa feedback niya! (^_^) may point talaga siya promise!

I replied “hmm sabi pataposin daw un games, matapos na maya2x” somebody replied “hay nako naga games baya ako matagal gyud matapos ang games”

Actually my allergies' activating since the place is very dusty and aircon tubes are present so I need to breathe myself and I’m very hungry na! 3pm na baya!

Me and Joy decided to go out and eat first, I also told myself my temper is still at hand, nakakainis ha! Sabi ko dali joy kain muna tayo alis muna tayo…
But actually at the back of my mind 50/50 chance of going back coz it’s really noisy and dusty

Then the only thing that let me go back there was the text from Francis and Cesar saying nag start na 3D animation so joy and I got back in there.

Waaa! Ang ingay parin can’t understand well, but anyway since we are computer literate we can understand nalang; with the projector all the steps was illustrated.

I was sneezing every now and then, my allergies are activated gggrrrrr, just controlling it not to cough, I told myself after joomla aalis na ako I’m 100% sure hindi ko na kaya taposin eto waaa!

Suddenly, my mobile rang; an officemate called, asking “how was the seminar” I replied “oh gosh I’m at the back seat can’t understand well it’s very noisy in here because of gaming parang palenke!”,
my officemate said “sige dili nalang siguro ako punta”,
I said “oh sige, pero ok lang magpunta ka wag ka lang mag expect
We said goodbye and ended our conversation.

Sorry ha, I told my seat mate, I’m just telling the truth, kapag magsabi ko punta ka maganda it means it’s really worth it.

On the brighter side!

There were books given away Adobe Photoshop Elements for Dummies, but I got the feeling those books was intended for students.
Also T-shirts were given to selected few, and I was lucky to have a pen from Acrobat because of my smile. ahihihih Pretty smile daw! (^_^)

Sorry, I don’t have any pictures taken at the event, but I do have recordings of speech from Adobe Acrobat and Joomla (Jun Macarambon), sayang talaga hindi ko narinig yung kay Blogie about wordpress I just told Cesar “sawa na ako wordpress” since it was always my client’s projects but I do want to listen to Blogie’s presentation but then since I have recently develop an allergies;
Number One reason: my allergies’ getting worse I can’t breathe well…
Second someone text me about the disability day this coming July 17 (as an ADAP member Assoc. of Differently Able Person) they wanted me to at least know what are the new republic act 9442 for person with disabilities.

After Jun Macarambon presentation, I decided to withdraw some money because I really need to buy medicine for my allergies (again! Gggrrrrr kalagot!)

Hopefully if another seminar at NCCC Mall of Davao will not be as bad as this.
