It's Payday!

November 15, Sunday

It’s payday today. I woke up at around 8 am as I need to go to the gym. My hubby woke up earlier to cook our breakfast. Mom is already cleaning that house and already finished eating her palabok which she bought from a manang, the one who sells kakanin and other stuff. Well, I need to go to the gym today because I only have one and a half month left before my subscription expires. Well, I and hubby went to Waltermart Munoz for my gym session. He will wait for me outside the gym while reading Bro. Bos book. There are only a number of people working out at that time, which is good as I normally workout at around 5 pm …when the gym is jampacked with lots of people. It’s good to be able to use the gym equipment with only few people staring. Anyways, it took me two hours before I could finish my workout. I felt so refreshed and I feel that my life is again on the right track. It’s almost twelve noon and I am already hungry. We decided to go to Chowking to see what we co…

I Will Never Doubt Your Love...

How can I not love you?




Realizations about Love

It all started unexpectedly. Who would know how it all began? I just woke up one day and his face is all I see. I know I’ve been through the same scenario before 7 years ago and I know it has a tragic ending. But I still nurtured the feelings… I still gave in to this feeling knowing I will be the one in the losing end. Why didn’t I follow my instinct? Why would I give in to something that requires a lot from me but can’t give back what I have surrendered. It’s another one sided love affair and I hate myself for diving into temptation when I know for a fact that I will be the one to cry. I already cried it all out… I already gave up and already waved my white flag in surrender. I promised myself that I would never, ever initiate any act from this time forth forward that will rekindle my feelings for him. Not anymore.

I guess I won. After my heart to heart talk with Melai yesterday…I’ve realized how lucky I am to have Jojo in my life. I have been unfair to him. I was the one who manipul…

Simple Pleasures

Woke up at around 1:30 am today. It's really nice to have a three day off. I started working on my blogs while we decided to order a Mcdo Burger meal. We ate while watching a horror flick "After Life" starring Liam Neeson, Christina Ricci and Justin Long. It's a story about a girl who died because of a car accident and doesn't believe that she's dead. I think it's more of a love story than a horror film. It's about the love of her boyfriend who didn't stop searching for her love till the end. Yesterday, after working out in a gym, we had our groceries and he made me a grilled chicken using our griller. Feeling "korean food" ang menu because we also purchased a chopstic set to set the mood. I really enjoy simple pleasures such as this one. I'm very easy to please and I'd rather stay at home watching a good movie through our dvd eating a home cooked food. The best! I hope we could have more of this bonding moment and I know that li…

A Crazy Month

Mid July to mid August is the craziest months of this year for me. I 've fooled myself believing a lie and an illusion which led me to sorrow and despair. But that chapter of my life just ended this week, after a big revelation. I won't dig deep into that as it would only open old wounds. I would just like to tell the world that I have survived and managed to stand up after a big mistake. I am now picking up the pieces and trying so hard to bring back my passion to write. I lost so many writing opportunities as I wasn't able to find time to write because of some emotional mishap. It's been so hard for me to think and formulate ideas as my mind has been occupied with so many illusions. I would like to create more blogs, write more useful articles and begin reaching out to other bloggers. I would also want to earn more through my paid blogging but promise not to overdo it. I just want to make sure that when I retire in a year, I would have enough savings to start a new l…

A Very Hectic Week

Hello everyone! I'm sorry if I was'nt able to post anything on this blog for so long because I have been very busy with my work and some other personal stuff. There are so many things that happened these past few weeks...so many changes occur especially on the office. Well, just to let you know, our team has been dispersed. We were divided into two but good thing is that our new Coach was our previous QSP for 8 months so we already know him personally. I was overwhelmed when I've learned that KC would be our new TL. I know I am in good hands.

Another thing, brother called last night asking me if I want to buy his van because he is thinking of selling it and buying a new one. Well I'm still having second thoughts about it. I know I really needed a car for myself because our current apartment is very far from where I am currently working and I am really dying to buy one. He said the car is working in perfect condition but I could also add car accessories to make it loo…

Tired and Demotivated

I came to the office 30 minutes late today. I woke up at 3:20 am and my shift is at 4:00 am. I have the earliest shift and I don’t really like the feeling of going to work with no familiar faces around. I took the fist call and since I am really not on the mood for working, I don’t know how the call ended. There are so much dead air and I can’t even talk straight. There are a lot of uhmmm… and hmmm… and I don’t really understand the callers issue. The nega feeling continues until the end of the shift . I am just so fortunate to be have a one hour sup call coz I was able to rest my voice. I know I need to be motivated, I know I need to force myself to continue working for this company until next year. I can’t quit now, I’ve waited this far. I just hope I would be able to endure all of this and I would be able to safe for the future. After a year and a half, everything would change and I would be able to do things I want to do in life. I just want to be prepared in a battle. I can’t jus…

No Guts, No Glory

I’m so happy for my friend Melai as she was profiled to be a QSP Intern, the same position that was offered to me last month. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the guts to apply for the said position and I told my coach to just give the opportunity to others. Now, that my friend has her own chance, I told her not to let it pass and don’t commit the same mistakes I did before. I know it’s wrong, I know I need to grab all the opportunities that would be presented to me, unfortunately fear enveloped me. I don’t want to take risks and I really fear failure. I am afraid of what other people would say or would think of me if I fail such an easy to get position. I am afraid period. But I was enlightened by what Bro Bo Sanchez said on his weekly program in ABC 5 regarding Living The Life. He said that a certain survey company asked around 300 older people aging from 60 years old and above on what do they think their greatest regrets are and most of them answered almost the same thing. That they we…

Unmotivated and I Hate It

I don't like what I'm feeling...it's like the whole world is falling down on me. I wish I could still make things work for myself. I have sooo many regrets but I guess I need not focus on them anymore as I don't have anything much to do about it. I wish I could just wake up one day with a fresh new start and take all the opportunities I can get without any doubt. I hope there is still something in stored for me somewhere...

No To Injustices

I hate those people who doesn't respect a person's right. Most likely it's because somehow I've been a victim of such. Three years ago, I used to work in a website company where my direct superior was my former colleague. To be honest with you, I accepted the job having faith that our professional relationship would not be affected by our personal relationship. Unfortunately that's not what happened. Things went from bad to worse that it came to a point where I just told her that I can't take it anymore and that I am resigning. She didn't take my resignation because of anger and instead called me up on the phone saying I was fired. What an injustice! I was very young then, I didn't know anything about the law and I didn't know any legal action I could make against the company regarding what happened. Good thing, there is such an organization called Protection juridique who provides legal assistance and information through phone. It is now easier for…

My Impacted Wisdom Tooth

Image
Waaah, ngayon ang judgement day! I would need to see a dentist today to have my tooth extracted. I actually went to the office yesterday just to see our company doctor and fortunately, the doctor gave me a sent home slip. I have spoken with my coach and luckily, I was able to file an LOA (Leave of Absense) instead of  just the regular sick leave which means a minus on my scorecard for the month. Pag nangyari yun, nakow, my scorecard will definitely fail. Sayang naman ang QPB and all those perks. My coach thanked me for coming over kahit na namamaga na ang gums ko because in that way, I was able to prove to him that I am willing to sacrifice para lang mapatunayan na I'm telling the truth and hindi gumagawa lang ng excuse to be absent. So eto, I'm preparing for my 2:00 pm operation and I'm gathering all the strength I could get to be strong and huwag matakot sa injection. Waahhhh...iniisip ko palang ang haba ng karayom halos mahihimatay ako. I really pray the dentist can fin…

Simplify by Bo Sanchez

Image
Just after reading the "Simplify" book by Mr. Bo Sanchez, I knew for a fact that I have a higher calling. God has ordained me to do a lot of things for his own glory. He planted a desire in my heart to work part time so I could have enough time to serve Him and serve others as well. He wants me to have financial stability to have the courage to facilitate the mission He gave me in this lifetime. I know I'm not made just to exist - I know each and everyone of us is made for a single purpose - that is to glorify God through the life we live in. It does'nt matter if you are a teacher, a construction worker, a plain housewife - each of us have corresponding circle of influence...we need to utilize whatever we have to serve the Lord. I know I've been so spiritual on this post but it is more of a realization - a reflection of what the purpose of life is. I highly recommend the book especially to those individuals who are still struggling to know what path to take. Simp…

Forgiveness..

I know I have hurted my friend. We were supposed to go to my friend Mamu’s province in Agoo La Union for the holy week but unfortunately our schedule did’nt permit us to have a Saturday and Sunday restdays. Instead, I was given a six day schedule having a Wednesday and a Thursday off . I know that we have hurted him since we already assured him of our plans of going. I guess he already told everyone in Agoo that his friends will come along. I myself really is so excited to go there but I would have to choose between work or friendship here. The situation in the office was really so shaky, we don’t know how long will we gonna be able to work in the same company due to some issues with our scorecards. I hope my friend would be able to understand my situation and that I hope he’ll be able to find a spot in his heart to forgive me…

My Calling

Woke up at around 2 am today. As usual, I worked on my blogs while hubby cook our dinner after which we saw a movie through our dvd player again. I am beginning to learn a lot of things on how to optimize my blogs. Slowly learning about SEO stuff and I am loving it! I love to learn new things on how to improve my readership and my stats. I feel that this is my calling...to be a blogger so I could work part time and share my views to the world about how much God really loves mankind. Maybe I could share my own experiences so I could be a
blessing to others. I also want to work part time at home by working on my blogs so I could find ample time to go to church and serve the God who gave me my life through singing. I would be able to find time glorifying God and find time with my family as well. I believe that I work to live - not the other way around.

How about you, what's your life purpose? God bless everyone!

Team Building the Prophet's Way

Image
I will make some changes on my bl0gs and I decided to make this one my online diary. I would take note of what's been going on with my daily life and hopefully I could show to the world how God was able to help me cope up with all the challenges I face in my everyday life. Join me in my aim to conquer my own life battles and walk with me while I experience God's love and grace in my life. Hope I can somehow touch at least one's life with this blog and inspire him to wholeheartedly entrust his life to the one true God.


MARCH 1,2009
Monday





Last Monday was a great time for the team prophets to bond as we had our team building at Lancaster Hotel Shaw Blvd. We booked for their largest room where we enjoyed the luxury of enjoying a 3 room unit. Since I had a shift prior to that day, I need to go home first and rest while my other teammates already headed to the hotel as early as 2PM. I need to go home and fixed my things and of course, I need to have my much needed rest. I know …

SEO Fever

Well, I literally didn’t sleep tonight. I’ve actually worked on my blog the whole night while hubby watched some movies on our dvd player. He then decided to sleep at around 3am. I, on the other hand, can’t force myself to sleep as I still need to install some plug ins on my blogs. Actually to be honest with you, though I’ve already blogging for almost 3 years now… this is the only time I have fully understood the use of google trends and google analytics. Of course for so many years, I’ve long to have a popular blog. A blog that would give me lots and lots of moolah from paid ads to google adsense and I know I need to do something about it.

I know that writing almost everyday would help improve my stats but I also know that it’s not enough and I don't know where to begin. Good thing I was able to read the ebook “The Guerilla Blogging” by mr. macuja and mr. z diaz – because of that, I was able to see a clear vision on how I could improve the numbers in my blog and what steps I n…

I'm the Lucky One

Just a while ago, I and my hubby Jojo had to SM North Edsa to buy some stuff for the house. I intend to buy shoes and a shirt to be used in the office and I also want to buy some stuff for him for his upcoming birthday on March 29 and also do our groceries together. We normally go out during my restdays and we treat going our groceries together as our bonding time. It's payday so I thought it would be a perfect time to have a date and buy him some gift. The salary I got was below my expectation and as what I have posted on my other blog about what happened during Pacquiao Clottey Fight wherein I had paid my dsl connection in advance, my budget for our bonding today is so limited. But I know that hubby is looking forward to this date, he's been busy doing chores in the house and working on his online job so I guess whatever the situation is, I need to make sure he would have a great time today. So I bought some stuff for myself and bought him some underwear from Bench. He said…

Living THE LIFE...

March 6, 2010
Saturday

Dear God,
While surfing the net and working on my blogs earlier today, an idea came to mind. I want to add some Christian music to my computer’s music playlist. So I hurriedly searched Bearshare, my music search software, and was able to search different PAPURI songs and grabe, memories started to come back. I still recall what my life was when I am still living in Montalban with my mom during my first two years of working. I guess that’s the closest I’ve been with God because at that time, I am always going to the church with my friends Pipa and Jag. I still recall how early I used to wake up, which is more or less 5 am in the morning. My mama would always put in some Christian music on our cd player and while I’m fixing myself … I would
usually sing along. Hayyy..I really miss those days. If only I could pull back time and continue being close to God the way I’ve been before…I would grab it. Lord, please help me have a closer relationship with you again. I …

Learning about SEO

March 5, 2010
Friday

Dear God,
Well, it’s such a great day for us. The original plan was to spend the day at the house and just go to the mall later this afternoon, but since it’s too hot outside…we just decided to stay at home and just work on the internet and watch tv. It’s summer time now but I really didn’t anticipate it to be this hot and humid. Pweh. Anyways, I worked on my blogs and made some changes on it. Im currently reading what Malen gave me, an ebook about how to improve adsense earnings. She said her income tremendously increased since she followed the tips included in the ebook. I actually started reading the first part and intend to make time to read the rest of the book on my next rest day. Anyways, we’ve watched the movie Arn through the dvd and slept at around 6pm. Woke up at 3am and had our dinner. Watched Narnia while working on my blogs and writing some paid reviews. I really need to work on this and make time for SEO. I want to write useful articles and not jus…

Beading Hobby

March 4, 2010
Thursday

Dear God,


Wow, at last…it’s my OFF! Yahoo! Jojo fetched me at Munoz because we were supposed to have my celphone fixed. I bought a php 2000 worth of celphone at Ever Monumento but unfortunately we were not able to thoroughly check if it is working properly. The battery of the phone dies only after an hour after we had it charged. The USB cable is not working and the phone turns off by itself. I’ve learned a great lesson in buying without thoroughly checking the item while you’re in the store. Good thing, it is covered with one month warranty, however, Jojo forgot to bring the usb cable so we were left with no choice but just to go home and just go to the store tomorrow. I came home very exhausted and my hubby let me sleep while he cooks our lunch. My hubby is really the kindest man in the whole world. He takes care of me and looks over my needs more than his own. I really can’t ask for more. After he finished cooking our meal, he woke me up to eat our lunch. We …

Transportation and Budget

March 3, 2010
Wednesday

Dear God,


This is my last shift for this week, yahoo! Well, as always, I with Jojo again went to the office riding a cab which means another P150 was spent for nothing. I would confess that Jojo, my hubby, still comes with me to the office everyday which means my transportation budget is for two people. My actual fare to and from the office for myself is P75 so it would cost us P150 daily just to be able to go to my shift. That’s a lot! If we’ll take a cab, it would mean an additional P50 so it would be P200. Phew! I think I need to think of ways on how to save on our transportation. I really hope they would be able to finish the MRT extension project the soonest possible time so I could just take the MRT and Jojo need not to accompany me on my way to the
office. It would just cost me Php 94 if I would just be taking the MRT route. Well, I don’t have any complain at all… my sister is the one paying for the house we are living in right now and we are living co…

I Need To Pass my Scorecard

March 2, 2010
Tuesday

Dear God,

Had my shift tonight and I am 30 mins late! Phew! Anyways, the shift went well. I was able to concentrate on my calls and was able to forget about the time as I am really focusing on my calls. I need to pass my scorecard this month as I’ve been failing for three consecutive months now and that is scary! This is the first time I had failed three times consecutively in a year. It’s not sooo me. Anyways, I just hope and pray that I would be able to pass my scorecard this time. In Jesus name I claim it amen!

My Sporadic DSL Connection

I've been having issues with my dsl connection for sometime now but I still don't have the courage to have it disconnected. I don't know why, it's very easy to shift from one dsl company to another but I also know that I again need to present multiple documents, wait for about a week for the installation and pay another one month advance. I don't think I can add another complication in my already complicated life. Speaking of dsl conection, I guess what I need to do for now is to buy a wireless n router so I can use my wireless laptop while my hubby is busy working on our desktop. In that way, I don't need to wait for him to finish his task before I could start with mine. Good idea. Will try to order one from the net later that is - if I am lucky to get a steady dsl signal, haha!

I Fixed My PC!

Wow, I can't believe it! I was able to fix my pc issue by just checking on google and some pc forumn on the internet. It's just so happen that my original sound card which is built in to my computer messed up so I need to buy a new one. I bought a generic type of sound card and the salesman said I don't need to install a driver for it as it a plug and play type of device. It cost me P300! Though with so much doubt, I believed him and tried installing it myself. Unfortunately it's not working. I began to doubt the info that the salesman told me and I am now preparing myself to go to a technician so they could fix my pc problem which means I need to spend another P500 for the labor. I've been having a lot of problem on this PC lately and I am really on the brink of giving up and just give it away. I will just save some money so I could buy a new one. Luckily, I tried researching about my pc problem and was able to stumble upon a forum that says I need to disable the …

I've Got A New Griller

Image
Haller everyone! I'm back! Today is my restday and I am happy that I was able to spend the whole day with my lappy and my hubby (rhyming?) We'll just earlier today, I asked my hubby to buy me an electric griller...I don't know why I just suddenly asked him to buy one, and because my hubby is so "masunurin" as he is...he hurriedly went to Waltermart Munoz to buy one for me. He texted me saying he was not able to see the griller we saw before which only costs P1,200, but he does have an option to buy a bigger one and more expensive. I just asked him to go to SM North to check if there is a cheaper option and luckily there is! It only cost him P999 for a large griller like this:


He bought a fish (maya maya), tokwa, togue, and liempo. I hurriedly made fish fillet and seasoned it with salt and pepper. I also marinated the pork liempo with soy sauce and calamansi. Our lunch was superb! I love it!





We just can't get enough of our griller so we again cooked grilled li…

My To Do List

Wow, indeed time flies so fast! I made it! I am still alive and kicking, I still have my job, I still have warm clothes over my body and a roof on my head and most importantly… I still have my complete family with me. There has been a lot of things that happened last year, there has been happy and sad experiences, but in general...year 2009 has been a great year for me.

Now, I am again facing a new year, a new chance to go back to square one and start all over. I know I was'nt able to do what I have written in my new years resolution list last year but this time, I intend to make it to reality. Here are some of my to do list this year.

On the top of my list is to lose weight. I know I was able to succeed with this last year... I lost almost 20 lbs because I enrolled myself in a gym but I easily gained it after my subscription ended. I lost motivation too soon. This time, I want to make it for real. I would need to lose at least 30 lbs off my weight, at least 30. I want to get marr…
