What A Busy Christmas Week

What a busy week it was! I was really pressured and at the same time tired of thinking of how I can get rid of stress especially that I need to prepare myself for a number of celebrations on my list. Well, first and foremost… I was kind’a sad for the last two weeks because of what happened to my friend. She was forced to leave the account because of some company rules that she broke. Secondly, we had 2 Christmas parties to attend to… one is the company sponsored party and one for the team. We also have new teammates so I’m still kind’a giving my best effort to get to know each one of them. Lastly, my sister who is based in Singapore is now visiting Manila and would stay at their house here in Project 8. I’m kind’a stressed because I need to make sure everything is in order. I need to paint the house, fix some broken furnitures, clean the drawers. I really want to have a break!!! I want to blog and finish my pending tasks but I am too tired to work at home. I even asked my friend Melai…

too busy to blog...

so many things to share...so little time. will update you of what's going on once i had the time to at least blog for an hour or two. i can't believe i was'nt able to blog for almost two weeks now! grrr! i hate it. i will get back to my regular programming on wednesday...at last it's my off! till then friends!

ON LETTING GO...

I again am letting go of a friend... and it really breaks my heart. I know that there is no permanent collegue and that sooner or later, someone has to say goodbye again... but I never thought it would be so soon... Last August, my best buddy bid farewell to the company because he wants to pursue a different career. September, another close friend resigned because of a conflict in schedule. She is studying Japanese language that time and she feels that she needs to give up work to be able to achieve her dreams of going to Japan one day... and today, an unexpected thing happened. My friend was barged by a client and there has been a bridge of security that transpired within the call...and because of that, management decided to take her out of the account. She still keeps the job but she would be out of the technical program. She might end up being in a financial account or customer service and if fortunate, might again get a technical position but this time in a different technical pro…

Thanks SOPCAST!

After shift, I hurriedly went home to see the Pacquiao fight only to find out that the delayed telecast on Channel 7 won't happen until 12nn. But praise God that when I searched the net, I was able to get some info on where to watch the fight online and yehey! We were able to see Manny Pacquiao fight real time! Thanks to the power of internet and blogs as I was able to find an info on how to download the software and what channel to tune in to. I was really happy as we were able to see a clear view of what's going on in the ring through live streaming. I immediately shared it to my Facebook friends and I am happy that they too were able to see Pacquiao Cotto fight live. Here's what we did to prepare ourselves for the Pacquiao Cotto Fight

hubby cooked our lunch earlier so he does'nt have to go from the kitchen to our room while watching the fightpinasok namin sa kwarto yung lamesa para dun maglunch and binuksan ang aircon ng mas maaga

we have also eaten our lunch earlier …

Our First Ever Weekly Date

Image
I am sooo happy that after soo many years... we were able to have an intimate date last week. We were approved for VGH @ around 3am. VGH is a priviledge given to us by the company wherein we were allowed to go home hours before our shift ends especially when the volume of calls is not that high and there are a number of agents on the floor. I asked my hubby to fetch me and he came at round 4am and we went straight to Yoohoo Bar, Metrowalk Ortigas. It was literally dinner by a candle light because the table was already set up with one. Though the place is really not that intimate - in fact I even saw my officemates on the table next to ours as they were also permitted to go home early. I feel that it is the most romantic date we had so far. We ordered two grilled liempo meal and Iced Tea. The meal is superb for an affordable price of P65 each. After deinner we also ordered San Mig light for hubby and Zombie cocktail drink for me.

We were able to talk about our future plans, renewed our…

Marriage Made In Heaven

Image
I've always dreamed of having a wedding of my own someday. To be able to submit myself to the man God has ordained for me. To be able to celebrate our love with the people who are dear to us and to be able to make a pact before our Creator that we would continue to love and cherish each other until our last breath. Hey, just thinking of that gives me excitement beyond words....

Well, I think being married with the man you love is every woman's dream. Having someone who would take care of you when you get old gives you assurance that whatever happens in the future - it would be bearable knowing you have someone to share the burden with... you have someone to lean on during tough times...

She is the singer - he is the dancer...both are serving God with their talents for God only knows how long. They've known each other for years but never imagined themselves being involved with each other. I am not really informed on how their relationship blossomed into something special. W…

Yey Me Award Ako!

Image
Thank you so much mommy riza of Crayon's and Pencils for giving me this award. I've been blogging since 2004, almost 5 years now, but I really never had any friends through the internet. Maybe because I don't look for one but I envy those people who finds real friendship and bloggers who talks as if they knew each other for years though they're only way of communicating is through their blogs. Many are even a thousand miles away from each other! I want to have a friendship like that as well so I promise to put more effort into it. Thank you for opening the doors for me again mommy riza!


Icey and Melai's Birthday Celebs at the Agogo

Image
Just two weeks ago, we celebrated two birthdays. Once is Icey's 22nd and the next is Melai's 26th. Both parties are held at Cafe Agogo along Julia Vargas Ortigas Pasig. Besides the fact that Cafe Agogo is just a few blocks away from our office - I think one thing that drives us back to that place is it's cozy ambiance. I mentioned on my previous posts that it is the best place to unwind and have a good laugh with your friends with their low lighted effect and their comfy chairs. The bar is not that crowded and the menu is also affordable. They have what they call "Happy Hour Promo" in which you could get 3 bottles of iced cold San Mig Light or two servings of Cosmopolitan for only a hundred bucks. My favorite breakfast treat Spanish Omelet costs me only P69 with free Iced Tea! Other dishes are also reasonably priced and tastes good as well. I once tried their Rosemary Chicken with Iced Tea for P169 and although it's not the best roasted chicken I've ever …

My Little Dream House

Image
I and my friends Melai and Sam is planning to get a house of our own. Well, getting a house and lot of my own has always been my dream since I was young. I often dream of having my own room as I would like to have it painted pink. I would adorn it with accessories and I would make sure that it would be the most comfortable place in the world for me. But since I entered this current relationship of mine which would probably lead to marriage...getting a house that we could call ours became a necessity. I browsed through the net and found a simple and cute low cost housing located at Caloocan City. I found it very affordable as it would only cost me almost P4100 payable in 30 years to own that property. It is a 50 sqm property, with house and lot, with provision for one bedroom at the loft. Though the lot area is not that big, I guess a little bit of imagination and creativity would work with it. I already have a plan in mind on how I would beautify this house. I would paint it with pink…

3 Celebrations in A Week!

Image
Grabe, last week was so busy for me as there are so many things to celebrate for us. I myself can't believe that I attended 3 tomaan sessions with my friends in a week. It's indeed a week of fun, laughter and lots of bottles of beer!

We'll the first time was not really planned. Since our shift before was from 4am to 1pm - we would normally go out after shift during paydays. We would treat ourselves with lunch at Gale and would have a bottle of beer or two. But since we are now on night shift (from 10 pm to 7am) - we decided to just wait for our salary till 10 am and just spend the time wating in a bar, and most of the time it would be @ Cafe Agogo along Julio Vargas Ortigas. We would just chill and order a bucket of san mig light and order our favorite breakfast Spanish Omelet. As I mentioned on my other post, I love Cafe Agogo because of their comfortable chairs, cozy bar, dim lights and the food! They do have a promo everyday from 9am to 11 am where 3 bottles of San Mig …

Had A Naughty Chat with Mamu and Melai

Just after I woke up at around 1am, I with Mamu and Melai had a voice chat conversation thru YM. We talked and laughed about what's going on in the office and what crazy thing mamu does on those times he is not working. Melai had some issues with her computer so she could only hear us but is only responding by typing in to the chatroom as the microphone on her headset is not working. We chatted for almost an hour while my hubby prepares our dinner. Along with the conversation, I decided to share the picture of our "soon to be" business location so I could get his idea if the place is ok. We are thinking of getting a small store space in front of our house so we could start our mini eatery. So while I was sharing the photos, I saw something on the screen... a picture of a man without any clothes! I was stunned and later on realized that Mamu is sharing pictures too! Hahaha! He is also sharing pictures to me through photo sharing! I was kinda stunned by it and decided to m…

My New Room

Image
Yehey! At last I was able to change the look and feel of my room. Yey! I am able to arrange all my books, I was able to discard those clothes that does'nt fit me well (I had tons of them), and I was also able to find those things I've been looking for a long time (nasa ilalim lang pala sila ng kama all along) LOL! After cleaning up the entire room, I fell asleep because of that very tiring task. I feel more comfortable and relaxed now. I promised myself that I would buy some cute stuff for my room on payday. I will also purchase some Office Furniture for my online job such as office tables and chairs and I would like to have pink ones or at least those furniture with bright and happy colors. I want to make it a real "girls room"! Maybe the reason behind this obsession of mine to make my room beautiful is that I missed having one when I was little. I never had a room of my own. I would always share the room with my sister and my mother and I never had my own bed until…

Not Being Able to Blog for a Month

Image
The past month has been a very "confusing month" for me. I've been a "worrier" for the longest time, I'm always thinking of the future...of what my life would bring us...I'm always afraid to fail...most likely, that's the same reason why I'm stagnant...wy I'm always going nowhere...

I guess it's time to break free... I guess I need to sit back for a moment and really assess myself. Ask God for guidance and decide for myself what I want to achieve in this lifetime. I already asked my coach if I could file for a week vacation and he promised to help me...as long as I can provide a proof that there is indeed a need for me to file for one like studies, health, vacation abroad etc...

I don't like the direction I'm currently heading, I need to cut the chase. I think I need to have a 360 degree turn and go back to square one. It's better to start all over than to continue fighting when you know you'll only be in the loosing end…

Torn Between Two Friendship

I’m again tom between two friends. Well,we really don’t have any major fight or what its just so happen that my friend and officemate is beginning to like a boy who was the apple of the eye of my friend who is now working abroad. Though my OFW friend and the boy never really had a serious relationship (not even close to that), I still feels that for delicadeza’s sake – the friend who was left here should at least let our OFW friend know that she is beginning to like the boy. Though there is really no serious effect on our friendship – I feel that the girl should have asked the friend for permission first or at least inform the friend first of what she feels but the guy so that there would be no conflict , I am caught in the middle. Well I already told my friend here about how our friend other is feels about this guy and she promised to let our friend knows what’s happening between them. It’s just so happen that I personally experienced being in this kind of situation a friend – a clos…

BONGGANG BONDING MOMENT W/ FRIENDS @ RED BOX!

Image
Grabe, after a very hectic day @ the office - here we are "destressing ourselves" (wat a term, hahaah) and decided to "loosen'up" @ Red Box Trinoma. The eight of us melai, ice, mamu, john2, imee, the newly recruit "dee" and myself went to Trinoma right after our shift. Were learned that there's a promo for only P399+++ which includes a buffet of lunch and a videoke session that could last for 5 hours. Unfortunately, the promo is only available till 12nn. So we just opt for a three hour session promo for P199++ consumable and we just ate @ Kenny Rogers for lunch as the room would be available only after an hour. The whole experience was really enjoyable as we were able to bond, laughing at the corniest joke there is and making "okray" each other the whole time. Right after lunch, we headed straight to our gimik destination and we really had a blast! Hahaha. The room is so "high tech" and at first we had some difficulty naviga…
