Job -hunting Update

Renxkyoko Iglesias  here. Hi !

I didn’t watch the second debate.  While watching the first debate,  I did a juvenile thing …. I threw potato chips at the TV, not to mention  my intestines almost exploded.  Eh.  I don’t need that kind of aggravation in my life.



So, okay, some of my readers have been asking me about  my job hunting.  Thank you very much for asking.  I did say on my previous post my dream job was  to be a forensics  analyst….. after all,  that’s  one of my majors (  I graduated with 2 majors, Cell and Molecular Biology , Minor in Chemistry, and Forensics Biology. )  I applied as Criminalist 1  two months ago,  took a test,…… unfortunately, it was  an ” experience ” test with questions like ” Have you ever been called as a DNA expert at a court trial ? ”  What the heck !  Of course I haven’t.  So, I didn’t get the job. But I have a question……   I got a Rank 4 and they said  they took in those that got Ranks 1 , 2 and 3 (  with experience , all of them ) but I’d have first priority  if and   when a position opens within the next 2 years.  I told my police officer friend about it….. and she said, ” Congratulations , girl, Rank 4 is  great news.  Just be patient. ”   My question is,  what does getting a Rank 4 really mean  ?  I want to be optimistic . That’s my dream job, after all.


Good thing I have another  degree to fall back on.  I actually got so many responses to my applications, but 90% of them are from out of my city……..  LA,  Nevada, San Francisco, Berkeley, etc.  Oh, wait, I even applied  at NSA ( National Security Agency , ha ha ha )  I answered NO to all the questions, except the one on being bi-lingual.  Then the questions got more detailed. Well, never mind. Hey, that’s NSA , okay ? *   zips mouth *


I got 2  responses from 2 companies   that are  located in my city….  one from Diagnostics and one from a  dairy company. At Diagnostics, I  didn’t get the job because , believe it or not, I WAS OVERQUALIFIED  in  the position  that I applied for.  That’s one  heck of a reason for rejecting me.


Well, good news! ! !  I got the job  at a dairy company.  I am now working  at their   Quality Control department,  checking out for contaminants, microbes….  in other words, the quality of the finished products, duh.   The dairy company manufactures milk, of course, and  ice cream, novelty ice cream products,  cheese,  cream cheese, gosh,even eggnog, and any product that comes from milk. Our milk comes from California cows,  and California cows are happy cows.


My work schedule is fluid…  sometimes it is from 12 PM to 8:30 PM….. or  8 PM to 4:30 AM  .  Another good thing about this job is , it’s a) unionized  b)   pay is good, very, very good    c)   it’s just an 11 to 12 minute drive from our house.

Irrelevant random photos because there should be photos, right ?   I love these ones that I took at Louvre Palace in Paris.  Bet you haven’t seen a photo of Venus de Milo’s  butt.


This is all for now.  Thanks for reading, folks !  !

Shameless and mind boggling

Hi ! Renxkyoko Iglesias here !

I cannot wrap my mind around  the fact that the Philippine president  could actually  compare himself to Hitler….. that if Hitler had managed  to kill  6 million Jews , he could  eliminate  all the drug dealers , as well.  I don’t know if Filipinos are just a  bunch of ignoramuses who have no f*cking idea what this person’s remarks imply, or ,  I don’t know, the cavalier  and casual attitude  toward  the deaths of millions of people  is  just….. mind boggling.  Hasn’t this person   realized  he just compared  the 6 million Jews killed by Hitler  with drug dealers ?  Applaud him, applaud yourself.


F*cking disgusting.




Why a Philippine -American will never become a US President

Renxkyoko  Iglesias here.  Hello ?

Before anything else,  check out my manga/anime blogsite  HERE     The latest entry is Ouran High School Host Club manga 10/10, Ouran High School  Host Club anime, 0/10


I have not been feeling well these days.  The  see saw change in temperature always gets to me. Yesterday and today , it was 98 F, the day before that, 80 F.    Temperature should have started  steadily going  down in  middle of September, but it hasn’t.  The climate  is truly and irreversibly  whacked.


I came across some jokes circulating on the Internet  about why  a Philippine – American will never be a US President. Since it is presidential  election year here in the US ( it’s on  Nov. 8, don’t forget to vote ), I think the jokes are right on the nose, and  can be your future reference  , just in case.  d( ^_^d )


Here are the reasons :


a)  The White House is not big enough for the First Couple’s immediate family, in – laws, and extended  relatives to live in..

b)  There are not enough White House parking  spaces  for the extended relatives’ cars.

c)  The White House will smell of fried dried fish( tuyo )  , fish sauce  ( patis ) , and the stinkiest of them all, shrimp paste ( Filipinos call  it bagoong , pronounced bah-goh-ong )

d)  Since Filipinos  cook too much , foreign dignitaries and VIPs   will be flabbergasted to receive  food to ” take home ” , and  for their secretaries and  drivers , as well….. and they cannot refuse,  because the First Couple will insist on it.  Of course, expensive Tupperware plastics will be used, instead of recycled plastic food containers. Another thing,  state dinners will always be buffet, eat all you can.

Below is a typical Iglesias  food spread, for  6 or 7 people.  At the White House, I’m sure they will be serving one whole roasted pig  called  lechon, guests will get in line,and there will be a classy sous chef who will slice off  crunchy, melt in your mouth pig skin for the special ,  pork eating  dignitaries. d( ^_^d )



e)  The First Couple will redecorate  the dining room wall  with a huge bas relief or painting  of  Leonardo da Vinci’s   Jesus’ Last Supper, (  tee hee .. we have that here at home )  and,  a small statue of Baby Jesus ( Santo Nino ) ,or of  the Blessed Virgin Mary will appear somewhere in one corner of the White House formal  living room. How does one know if the house is owned by a Filipino family ?  There’s a Last Supper  on the dining room wall.


Last Supper wall decor


f)  The Presidential car , and all WH staff cars  will have a rosary hanging on the rear view mirror.



g)   Budget  staff  will not allocate  funds for karaoke for each White House room.  * we have one at our house….  called Magic Mic .   How does one  know if a house is owned by a Filipino family ?  There is a karaoke machine in the house. *


h)  Air Force One will not allow  overweight  Balikbayan boxes on the plane.



I hope my Filipino readers will not get offended by this post.  It’s true Filipino culture, admit it.  (^___^)

This is all for now. Thank you for reading





” sigh “

Hello !  RenxKyoko Iglesias here !

I’ve been staring at a white, blank screen for hours now. I am still deciding  whether I will post something  about my job – hunting,  or go ahead and write about  my 2014  vacation in the Philippines.  I have tons of pictures  all ready to be posted here,  but  I don’t feel like writing about  a country,(  it does not  matter that this is where I was born, and came from) that tolerates, approves of ,  and seemingly delights  in   extra-judicial  killings of ” ALLEGED” drug pushers.  I’m sure my Filipino blogger friends would tell me I have no right to criticize  the country because 1. I am not a Filipino  2.  I  have no idea what they are going through  living in  a country with acute drug problem.


I do understand that. I know  the country has become the dumping ground of  all sorts of drugs  ( they call  one drug shabu  )……. Why is the Philippines the dumping ground , you ask ?  Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and other South East Asian countries have extremely strict laws against possession. It’s death penalty  . The Philippines, on the other hand,  is less strict, not to mention law enforcers are extremely corrupt.  I’m sure the authorities know exactly who the drug lords are .  They are untouchable, and, obviously  we know why.

I always write about the Philippines and its people in glowing terms. They are naturally gentle, generous,  happy, smiling people, and this is true.  But not at this time,  and unfortunately,  not for 6 years.  They just elected a rogue president who disrespects  just about anybody… President Obama,  the Pope, and Jesus Christ  Himself. And  I am  not making this up.


Random photo. (  just because I mentioned The Pope ,and there has to be a picture, right ?)

Above is just a random pic of myself at the Vatican Museum. I think its one of  the best  pic ever taken during our  tour. I am exactly in the middle of the museum hallway,  and equidistant from the 2 walls. It’s true. I checked it.  Maybe there was divine intervention when my Mom took the pic.

To continue……

Oh, we are not entirely disconnected  from  the country. My family still own more properties in the Philippines  than the average Filipino, and we pay  taxes , without fail.  We therefore  have a reason  to pay close attention to  what’s going on there.

To my Filipino blogger friends  who have declared  their  heartfelt approval of this president’s  behavior…. I am sorry  to have a different opinion. I just hope and pray  this does not become the standard by which the country elects its officials.

I am sad and a bit demoralized.

This is all for now. Thank you for reading.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child… don’t judge me.


Hello there !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here .

I got my pre- ordered Harry Potter book  ” Harry Potter and the Cursed Child ” two weeks ago. DSCN2592

This is not a novel …. rather, it is a script for a play  published in book form, and because it is a script,  the reader will not get to read  any description of  the world of witches and wizards.  Nevertheless, the magic is still there, and the plotline is just as amazing  as the parent story…. like, who would have thought…. well, never mind, you can check out Wiki, the story is written there in great detail.

Although I love the story,  (  there is no HP book that I don’t love) there is one aspect in the plot that I find  troublesome. What is that, you ask .  It is the character development  of  Harry Potter, et al, which I find a  bit off.  After seven books, and reading each book at least two or three times, I would think  I already know Harry”s character  , inside and out.  There is just no way he would  be capable of telling his own flesh and blood, ” I wish you weren’t my son.”  So many people died because of their love for Harry, so , why Ms. Rowling ?  Why make him utter such horrible words  to his own son ?

I have 2 or more complaints but I don’t  want to spoil you. Oh, wait, there is one other thing that is worth noting.  Did Lord Voldemort ever get some romantic love , or  did he die a zero ?  Bellatrix  Lastrange loved him to death, and she did cling to him like a leech. (  I’m imagining it now…. Eeeeew !  lol )

Anyway, I wrote ” don’t judge me ” in the title of this post. Why ?

Here’s why…….


.HP’s wand … I bought it at  Disneyland  for $50 on July 4.

We have the complete HP books already,


but  I gifted myself last Christmas  with this…..



.And when I was in London….


I confess. I’m a Potterhead.  Please don’t judge me.  \(^_^)/

It’s a Banana plant !

Okay,  I’m blogging again. You’re wondering what this is all about…. a banana plant ?

Well, it’s a long story, but I’ll make it short.  Two bloggers  annoyed me , and I just cannot stay silent. I will not mention the names of their blogsites, but I know some of my readers had been there, and LIKED  the post.

So , what is it all about ?  This blogger  wrote about him being in a jungle somewhere in South America, and  told a story about being attacked by a snakelike reptile that was ready to devour him.


Above photo is his.

So I was like,  Eh?  This is a joke, right. But , the  stupid me responded with ” Uhm, that’s a banana plant, and that purple ” head” hanging is eaten as a vegetable. Now, if that was a joke,  he should have responded with something like , I’m not serious…. of course, that’s a banana plant. ”  Then I would just scratch my head and say, Oooops.  But no, this was his response, to quote…… ” You are bananas. It was moving and the head alone is 25 cm. long. The mouth was opening and closing in regular intervals. Bananas don’t do that. Also , bananas are yellow.”, close quote.

Then another commenter  also responded to me ( and I’ve been reading this guy , )and occassionaly,  he writes a comment here on my blogiste )  , and it oozed with sarcasm…. “You eat these things like vegetables ? You guys are tough.”

Then I responded to him … ”  we have banana trees at our backyard back in the Philippines, and bananas are roadside plants  over there. ”

And he replied.. ” Are they peaceful in the Philippines? ”

Now maybe I’m just  effing dense, but I know mockery and sarcasm when I hear it.

And I . can’t .  let. it. slide. So I commented there again and posted a picture of a banana plant, and added,” they are peaceful in the Philippines.”

Here is a freakin’ banana plant…..


We’re in a Freakin’ Twilight Zone

Renxkyoko Iglesias here, Hello !

I am sure  some of you have seen and watched this video that I’ve posted here. Normally, I wouldn’t post such  a video, because in the first place, I myself do not know what to make of this, but this is an interesting and abnormal  time,  so …….

Anyway,  do watch if you haven’t yet.  It’s Bill  Maher’s  outrageous  political pitch for  THE NOTORIOUS  H.R.C.  Warning:  mind the graphic and colorful language.  My folks and I cringed , but it did bring the Iglesias  household down, on the floor, laughing our ass*s  off.



Maher’s exposition sounds bad,  but I find it hilarious.  Sometimes, the way to fight  out- of- this- world accusations  is to own it.  (  Filipinos used to be called  Flips here in the US. So, Filipinos  fought  it by calling themselves Flips….. the racist name calling  stopped.  )  Sweet Grandma Hillary……  Trump, the lying, con man  Tweeter warrior  has nothing on you.

By the way, Tim Kaine, her VP, did  missionary  work with the Jesuits and stayed in Latin America for 2 years, and that’s where he learned to speak fluent Spanish…… he was also a civil rights lawyer for 17 years.  So, yeah, Hillary pals around with Lucifer.

This is all for now.  Thank you for reading.
