hawaii: my dream vacation

If you have been visiting my blog, you could tell that I really love the beach. I'm not a good swimmer but being in the shores, bare feet on the sands, enjoying the view and serenity of nature is incomparable. Isn't it relaxation at its best?

Hawaii is my dream vacation place. From movies i saw and feedbacks from people who have been there, it is surely a vacation place not to miss. I'm glad I find this site with great condo rental rates. They list wide arrays of condos, hotels, vacation spots to choose. Where to stay is not a question anymore. How neat!

So what now? See you in Hawaii sometime? My condo might just be next to yours then. :)

the rain and the shoes



The rain and the shoes. Uhmnn sounds incoherent? Not really...

Tale 1:

I was already at the gate near the guards' post when the heavy rain suddenly poured. And i was wearing my new white shoes. What a tragic night! I continued my plight, walked through the streets down to the main gate. The adorable couple Lenny and Gabriel saw me and had me hopped in to their car. "What does this single lady doing alone under the heavy rain?" Gabriel commented. I quipped uhmmnn ahhh i like the rain? Truth of the matter, i was disheartened of what had happened to my new white errr smudged shoes.

Tale 2:

I got a new pair of shoes again. The one with a bronze color. Those colors that sprout the shoes department now a days. The heavy rain poured again that fateful evening. I was glad the 'Silverado' will take me home and i wouldn't have to walk down the zone main gate. Sadly, the rain did not stop and the time has come for me to disembark from the gigantic jeep. My heart sunk when i found out i had no choice but to step on the muddy waters. Imagine how my new shoes would have felt? Yes right, granting the shoes had feelings. Aint that tormenting!?

I like the rain, really. I like it when it rains, just definitely not when it soils my shoes. Especially my new shoes.

do you have the prescription?

Thought this is funny... :D

A lady walked into a drug store and told the pharmacist she needed some cyanide.

The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?"

The lady then explained she needed it to poison her husband.

The pharmacist's eyes got big and he said, "Lord have mercy, I can't give you cyanide to kill your husband!

That's against the law! I'll lose my license... They'll throw both of us in jail and all kinds of bad things will happen! Absolutely not! You can NOT have any cyanide!"

Then the lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband having dinner in a restaurant with pharmacist's wife.

The pharmacist looked at the picture and replied, "Well, now... You didn't tell me you had a prescription".

lesson in management


Lesson In Management

Johnny wanted to screw a girl in his office.....but she belonged to someone else...

One day Johnny got so frustrated that he went up to her and said, "I'll give you a $100 dollars if you let me screw you." But the girl said NO.

Johnny said, "I'll be fast, I'll throw the money on the floor, you bend down, I'll be finished by the time you pick it up."

She thought for a moment and said that she would have to consult her boyfriend.....so she called her boyfriend and told him the story.

Her boyfriend told her to ask him for $200 dollars, pick up the money very fast, he won't even be able to get his pants down. So she agrees and accepts the proposal.

Half an hour goes by and the boyfriend is waiting for his girlfriend to call. Finally after 45 mins the boyfriend calls and asks what happened......

She said, "The b#stard used coins!!!"

Management lesson:
Always consider a business proposal in it's entirety before agreeing to it and getting screwed!
