Dalampasigan Beach Resort

Dalampasigan Beach & Pool Resort is located in Sariaya, Quezon.  And our company outing was once held here on May 5-6, 2007.

At the office before the long trip.

Mt. Makulot

This was my side trip during the Holy week of 2007, March 29-31.  For a change, I went on mountain climbing with my new found friends, all boys :D

Mt. Makulot is located somewhere in Batangas.  The province known for its "kapeng barako".  It was't a planned trip, "nagkaayaan" lang.  This was my first time to mountain climb, loved the experience.  And this was my first time to eat "LOMI", I really can't forget its taste, so yummy!

First time in Baguio

My Third out of town experience was in Tubao, La Union and Baguio City. I'm excited and at the same time afraid to go to the top of Baguio City coz of the zigzag roads and the many accidents I've heard.  But the scents of fine trees invited me to go farther and, thus, it eased my fears away.  As we reached the city,  I was amazed of its beauty.  Cool breeze welcomes us.

Virgin Beach Resort

This was my second out of town, but this time with my co-workers, our company outing.  We visited Virgin Beach resort located in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas, April 26-28, 2006.  For the first timer like us, this place is beautiful.  A combination of native and modern style of cottages/ rooms with fine dining experience.

I am feeling lucky this early quarter of the year.  I've won lots of prizes as I've mentioned on my previous post. Not a super duper major one but at least, I'm still a winner!

FX Driver

These days, I seldom see a person with kind heart.  Most of the people today have "this is mine" "all mine" mentality!  This maybe because of poverty and economic crisis afflicting our country.  Only few will return the item they accidentally picked up to the real owner.  And this is why I salute this FX Driver with PKP400 plate, Quiapo-Megamall-Pasig route.

FX is our daily transport to work.  And last Wednesday night as we rode the FX going home, the driver asked us if we have a Cherry Mobile phone.   We asked him why?  And he said that someone had left a mobile phone on his fx and the (might be) owner of that phone is now calling and he didn't know how to open it.  My husband tried to unlock the said phone, and voila, he unlocked it!

To make the story more shorter :D, the driver asked his fellow drivers through the radio to send him load for him to be able to call the owner.  But his co-drivers said just wait for the owner to call.  So that's the story, the owner and the driver talked where they could meet up.

If you were in his position, will you return the phone or just keep it???? Well your conscience will tell you.

Super Full Moon can cause Chaos?

I love the moon.  I'm fascinated by its beauty, on its different views/angles appearing on earth's sky.  From first quarter, last quarter, new moon and of course the full moon. It's so lovely up there. I remember my childhood super hero, Sailor moon.  I'm always rushing home to see this cartoon series.  I'm sure you did that too!

Me and My Nephew's Deal

Before he enrolled to his Kindergarten class, my nephew KC and I had an agreement, that if he got a medal on his graduation day I will give him a gift of his choice.  And that agreement sticked to his mind, and now that his graduation is near, naniningil na ang baby ko!!!! :D hahahhaha

Well, he really deserves to have gift(s).  His school days have lots of fun and brought his parents and me PRIDE and HONOR!

Remembering my Father

Birthdays, anniversaries, dining at small carinderia, watching movies during payday and visiting our relatives (father side) during holiday seasons. Those chocolates, yakults, hotdogs and more.  Those are my childhood memories that makes me happy and sad at the same time.  Those are the memories spent with my father.

I missed my father so much and I am sure my sister too.  We've spent only a little quality time together before his rest in peace.  Those precious moments that won’t be forgotten by his daughters.

And this video of Celine Dion’s song touches my soul again and softens my heart as I remember my father.

Dance with my father again by Celine Dion

I know it touches you too.......as well as inspires you again.

Miss you father.......and also you mother.  It'll get better soon.  In God's perfect time and will.

I still can Smile!!!

Passport Application

It's because of our company's proposed outing at Hongkong that drive us to Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and apply for a passport.  Of course every one of us are very excited, it's not just an out of town experience to be but out of the country!

First we set our application schedule here at E-Passport.

March 9, 2011, 10:30 am was our scheduled appointment. I must say that I am satisfied with their service. Though there are lots of people there querying for their application, still they served us fast. Yes, it's true that the line was too long, but it's moving fast and so we've finished it at only an hour, from the gate to the cashier; I think it is Step 1 and 2.  It only slows down on the verification and image capture, coz it was their lunch break.

New Layout

I have nothing to do in the office.  So I just let my mind wander, and decided to change the layout of my blog. It's very hard to choose for the design.  Some are not compatible when you put it.  Some just don't function.  And most of them are common.  Tired of choosing but I don't give up, then here came up the final look.  Hope it fits me.

New look, new home, new me!!! :)  Thanks to Skincorner.Com for this wonderful skin :)

By the way, today is our 3 years and 3 months anniversary of being together......:D  Imagine that!!!??? Ang tagal na din pala namin magkakilala.

Always smile to brighten up your day.

We've been to Paradise!!!

I thought that paradise was only in dreams and can be seen only on fairy tales but I was wrong!  Because today, we've visited one of the hidden paradise in the Philippines located in Samal Island, Davao!

After our breakfast we packed our things and prepare to go to Samal.  We've brought of course things needed for swimming and water for our drinks.  They say that we can have our lunch there at affordable price.

Trip to Davao

On July 30, 2010 Cebu Pacific had a promo trip to any destinations amounting to Php 88 vv.  And I, being a traveler as they say a jet setter, booked a ticket for two to Davao knowing that the travel date is almost a year to come, March 2-5, 2011.

Though it is so far, I still grab the opportunity to go to Davao, the largest city in the world.  I wanted to visit my long lost relatives there and of course to explore the hidden beauty and secrets of Davao City.

I am thrilled as I imagine what am I gonna do there, where and what to visit and of course the thrill to see my relatives.  How will I react, what will I say to them.

Then it's  March 2, 2011.

First Month Incentive

After a month of those efforts to being early and punctual everyday, at last, I've got the fruit of thy labor:D

souvenir :D

How sweet it is to receive an incentive and at the same time assessing yourself for a change to never commit some late.

This is a part of disciplinary action and at the same time incentive given to us by our company that to earn a thousand bucks we have to finish a month without any late or at least a three strikes late.  Meaning it is allowed for us to have late of up to two strikes but if we commit the third one, no bonus at all.

A give and take part between the company and the employees.  Both will be benefited, the employees to have extra money at the same time practice their punctuality and the company to attain its goals and objectives as well as targets.

I am looking forward to get my second month.....I am working on it

How about you?.


Food Trip @ Karate Kid

For the celebration of our second month as hubby and wifey, we've decided to stroll for an hour at S Megamall, again, where else?  As we walked around, we bought some fries in Potato Madness.  We are fries addict!!!!

The 2nd Philippine Pyromusical Competition

We bought Close up toothpaste for two reasons: (1) join the contest and fans day of  of Taylor Swift entitledas Enchanted: Taylor Swift's Grand Fans Day hosted/sponsored by  Odyssey held last February 18 at SM Megamall Entertainment ground (naks) Building A. and (2) at the same time to have tickets for the 2nd Pyromusical Competition.

Cajun Red Rock Restaurant

We dined at Cajun Red Rock Restaurant for the celebration of our VP's birthday (February 25) located at SM Megamall (megastrip).

We ordered baby back ribs with chicken and corn.

I love the foods and the bottoms up iced tea.....super full!!  They've served us meals on giant's plate......

The crews sang a Happy Birthday song to our boss, I am sure he's pleased!!!

And our dessert......murdered ice cream cake......lols!

The reason why we love our company and our boss......it's because of foods!!!!  Hahahaha!!!  And of course because of their gratefulness to us all.

Big smile to us all!!
