Count Me In :D

Posted on Updated on

Yesterday, I was not able to come to work. I woke up late because I am feeling sick. Maybe it is because of the depression I had for our upcoming company outing.

For the past few days, I was formulating reasons and strategies to approach our boss and make me bring my brother along. And because of the tension and fear of being rejected, I did not have the guts to tell him my thoughts.

And so yesterday, my mind gave up and my body weakened in result. I felt so hopeless and sad that I can’t be in the outing.

Later, last night I had hope. I know myself for being optimistic and creative in finding means and I have thought of a plan that shed me some light.

I woke up this morning and came to work one hour earlier of my actual shift. I did my daily rituals while I wait for the big boss.

The clock ticks and I am starting to get nervous again. I am almost to quit my plan on talking to my boss when ate marian came and told me a good news.

“Uy, kasama ka na sa outing,” she said.

I was shocked and before I knew it, my heart is already jumping in joy. I can’t believe it. I’m in! 😀 Big boss finally decided to let my brother tag along. There are many employees who can’t come so he let me bring my bro.

Later before lunch, the final list of employees who are officially coming was posted. I browsed for name.

6. Imperial, Jhoy with her sister

hahaha… well, anyways, at least i’m officially in the list. Thanks god. 😉

Never Get Tired Of Loving Someone

Posted on Updated on

This is a quote from ‘The Mexican’ starring Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts.

when do you say enough is enough? To somebody you love so much, It is never.

Your body can get frustrated and your mind can get tired but your heart? Never. Despite vexations in your relationships, your heart keeps you holding on. You give way. You find means to understand.

In loving, you should learn a lot. It changes you. It should make you a better person. Love should guide you in the right side of the road.

When loving someone, you gain patience accompanied with faith. The stormy roads in a relationship should make you stronger. Loving should not be selfish both to your special someone but to yourself also.

Capones Camara Islands

Posted on Updated on

I already knew where our company outing would be. It’s in the beautiful island of Capones Camara Islands in Zambales. Browsing through a multiply photo album, I could say, it really is a good destination. I can’t believe I am going to miss this great opportunity. *sigh 😦

Anyways, I grabbed some photos from lemjaylucas.multiply.com. See for yourself the great scenario of the island.

Caught in the Middle? Nah, I Don’t Think So

Posted on Updated on

Our company will have its summer outing on June 8 & 9 in an Island in Zambales. I still don’t know where exactly are we going. It would be fun. I never missed a single outing held by the company ever since I became a part of it. Well, maybe this would be the first time.

It is only me and my sole brother who lives together. Our mom is in Thailand right now. There would be nobody left to care of him. He is only 12, technically, he’ll be 13 on June 9, and I am his sole guardian. I love him and I couldn’t afford to leave him alone for 2 days especially on that very day, his birthday.

I’ve asked our HR if i my bro could tag along. Sad to hear, but it can’t be done. The big boss has said that it would only be the spouses and children of those married employees. 😦

But, it’s fine. I have already arranged plans months before on how I would treat my brother in his special day. I’ll just keep it a secret for now.

Anyways, our HR is has been encouraging me to come but I am already decided. If I cannot be allowed to bring someone along, so it is. I don’t want to cause any trouble especially on those days.

Happy summer to everyone! 🙂

Love Symbiosis

Posted on Updated on

Here is an excerpt about love in harmony:

Symbiosis is the big special love where two beings come together in perfect harmony. They become one, living together, changing together, staying together for all time. This is different from any other kind of relationship. Love like this does not happen often. In a world full of predation, disease, parasitism, mutualism, commensalism, and stoic, uncaring loneliness, misunderstandings are more common than total understanding. But when it does happen it changes the whole world.

When You Are Caught Sleeping at Work…

Posted on Updated on

Here are 10 Best Things To Say If Caught Sleeping At Work

  1. They told me at the blood bank this might happen.
  2. This is just a 15 minute power nap like they raved about in that time management course you sent me to.
  3. Whew! Guess I left the top off the Wite-Out. You probably got here just in time!
  4. I wasn’t sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new paradigm.
  5. I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance.
  6. I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work-related stress. Are you discriminatory toward people who practice Yoga?
  7. Darn! Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem.
  8. The coffee machine is broken.
  9. Someone must’ve put decaf in the wrong pot.
  10. … in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Dear Anak

Posted on Updated on

Here is a very touching and heart-breaking joke letter I have ever read. It may be a joke meant to have fun, but when you have read between the lines, it hurts.

Dear Anak,

Naipadala na namin ang 50 thousand pesos na tuition fee mo, pinagbili na namin ang mga kalabaw natin. Ang mahal pala ng subject mong COUNTER STRIKE, wala na din pala tayong baboy naibenta na din para dun sa sinasabi mo na project nyo na NOKIA N95, ang mahal naman ng project na yun.

Kasama din ang 7 thousand dun para sa field trip nyo sa MALL OF ASIA, anak malayo ba yun? Mag ingat ka sa pagbibiyahe mo, isasanla palang namin ang palayan natin para mabili mo na yung instrumentong I-POD na kinakailangan mo sa laboratory nyo.

Anak komportable ka ba dyan sa boarding house mo, saan ba kamu yan, sa VICTORIA COURT??? – maganda ba dyan? Di ba mainit dyan?

Anak kamusta na pala yung group project nyo na SAN MIG LIGHTS? Napailaw nyo na ba? Mataas ba nakuha nyo na grado dun?

Anak sana bago pa maubos ang lahat lahat ng ari arian natin ay maka gradweyt ka na, walong taon ba talaga ang kurso mo sa SECRETARIAL???

Sana paggradweyt mo makakuha ka ng trabaho kaagad kagaya ng manager ng kumpanya para mabawi natin ang mga ari arian nating nasa sanglaan.

Ay sya nga pala anak di ba sabi mo sa JOLLIBEE / MAK DONALD ka palagi kumakain, ok ba naman sa yo ang mga ulam dyan? Baka hindi masarap, kawawa ka naman.

Anak hanggang dito na lang at sa susunod ay ipapadala namin sa yo ang pera na pambili mo ng ALTIS na gagamitin mo sa VACANT SUBJECT mo.

Ang nagmamahal

Itang at Inang

P.S. Anak mag aral kang mabuti.

Oh my, Alex Band
