Day of calls

This is really a day of many calls for me. Early morning my cousin made a long distance call informing me that  he just  arrived in Cebu Mactan Airport from UAE. I was excited to received his call after several months working in abroad. We might be  seeing by next week then. When I arrived at the office, I was busy concentrating on the encoding on the online system. Later my brother reminded me to call his insurance company for his insurance update. I took a break for a while and made a toll free call to Ayala Plans. After an hour I called the office of foreign affairs to inquire about passporting services of their office and jotted down some requirements so I will be ready before going at their office soon.  Before the office off  I chatted over the phone my little chubby niece with all the “his” and “hellos” to her. The last time that  I met  Geia was she was still 2 years old. Now she is 4 and very talkative on the phone. It was quick but still I enjoyed talking to her. She sealed our talk with a kiss. Cute baby girl. Lots of calling this and that for today, what a great day!  🙂

Busy Tuesday

I had  cluttered days since yesterday in the office. The main culprit was the network failure in the office computer system that piled up so many transactions. The system was ok just this morning so I had to double time to patch up with the back jobs. It felt tiring and draining to myself wherein almost everything are rush! This morning, I dropped by at the regional office to submit my personal docs. Then again this afternoon, I went back to the regional office twice for the processing of my new assigned task that would start on the 15th. Left and right tansactions can be seen in my work area. What a day!!! Its hard but that’s part of work and living.

Weekend Sale

Time is so fast for December and so it’s Saturday again. I am not so busy for today so I got a chance to visit the mall in Ilustre. They’re having a mallwide sale until midnight. One of my list for today is to scout for some sandals in preparation for the upcoming family activities. Good thing I found a pair on sale. There are lots of people lining up even in the baggage deposit and claim counters. I might be going back later for some groceries and hopefully that time , the mall is not very crowded anymore.

Reduced Bill

This morning my billing for the electrical consumption was delivered and it seemed early for the Davao Light to send billing notices for this month. I am happy to see that my bill for the 30-day period covering last week of October until the 3rd week of November reduced by about 20% from my previous billing. A big thank you for this!! Quite relieving for me because it is part of my monthly expenses. It is hard to budget money and allocate it on the important needs especially on monthly expenditures. It really pays to be  aware in saving energy as it also saves money.

Ties for Ponytail

I had been looking for some new ties for my hair because some are already worn out.  Good timing then because when I strolled in the fashion section of the mall, I found these cute and quality ties for my ponytail hair style.  I feel adorable with perfect tresses pulled back into soft, shiny sassy pony that was anchored to one side with  a  stacked effect. Great advantage about pony is that they are an easy to create, universal hairstyle that can be adopted  by any length or type of hair.  They can be casual or dressed up with loops, knots, curls, braids and an assortment of  jewels and hair accessories.  Now I can have choices on what to use according to my fashion color.  Just a  “girly thing” to post here. 🙂

Ring Redemption

At last I redeemed my fashion ring from a pawnshop store after nine months of being away from me. It was quite a long time to get back my personal essentials because of financial reasons. Thanks to MyMy because of her advise when I consulted her about it. She even helped to have it redeemed immediately. Pawning for that jewelry really helped me a lot during times wherein I was financially hard up and nothing to find but result in pawning the thing of value like the ring. I got it from the shop this weekend with minimum interest and some add-on amounts . Now I can wear my ring again after a long time of separation.

Dirham Gift

I had a blessed weekend and I am always grateful for this. My cousin arrived from UAE and he has been always thoughtful, concern and generous to us his cousins. This is his cash gift to us a 500 worth of Dirham money. Dirham is the unit of currency of  several Arab nations. I was glad for this gift and it would be of great help especially in my payables. I will try to inquire the value of Dirham to peso and if ever it is higher compared to previous months then I can have it exchange then.  Thanks for this gift of generosity.

Hearts Day of February

“Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves.”
“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”
“It’s one thing to fall in love. It’s another to feel someone else fall in love with you, and to feel a responsibility toward that love.”
For every step that you take in your life, remember, I’m right behind you, always there with you.
If it is wrong to love you, then my heart just wont let me be right.
Love has no boundaries and it’s eternal forever and ever.
I started to pray few weeks before I met you, I feel my prayers have been answered.
Love is an ocean of emotions entirely surrounded by expenses.
I believe that dreams come true because you are and always have been my dream.
Love is the tender smile, that opens your heart and a single touch, that occupies your soul.
Loved you yesterday, will love you tomorrow! Always have and forever will.
There is no remedy for love but to love more.
Only you, you’re the only thing I’ll see forever. In my eyes, in my words and in everything I do.

There are lots of quotes about love and for me I have to say that LOVE is the quintessence of life. The essence of living. The reason of our existence here in this world. This valentines day have a happy hearts day.

Underrated Virtue of Humility

What is humility?  Humility is the defining characteristic of an unpretentious and modest person, someone who does not think that he or she is better or more important than others.  I come to think of writing about this because for the past days, I have interacted with different kinds of  people and they have one thing in common– full of pride.  It is very disappointing, but lots of people these days have unreasonable and inordinate self esteem. They feel that they are perfectly satisfied with their own achievements and belittled others who they think do not have any achievement just like what they have.  I personally hate this kind of attitude and as much as possible I  avoid being with people who are too proud of themselves.  I encountered one person  who is already full of pride with only one step of achievement.  This person feels like shes already on top of others.  Too proud of herself that others are dumb about what she knows. Well, not everyone at this present time regards humility as a virtue. People has no more disposition to be humble.  You cannot drag a person for change with this kind of inate personality. Many people would feel proud about themselves  in this materialistic world  but in the end they are still worthless in the sight of the  Supreme Being. I still believe that humility is the inner life of real greatness.

Pursue by Amway

My cousin requested me yesterday to buy this Amway Pursue product for her household needs. After office hours I immediately went to the office of Amway and bought 2 liters of Pursue. The price per bottle as a distributor is P370 so the total is P740.00. Good thing that I had extra money. She told me that she will refund the purchases later time because she is still busy in the province. I hope so.. Amway products are quite expensive but offer good quality results. PURSUE Disinfectant Cleaner, kills 20 types of viruses, fungi and bacteria. Fast efficient way to clean hard surfaces and kill harmful micro-organisms in one easy step. Reduces the hazards of cross contamination between surfaces. This is an interesting description about Pursue by Amway.  I hope my cousin can do the household chores fast and easy with the aid of this product.
