Duhh!!! I’m so broke! Promise, this is my last major trip for this year. But you see, i got my round trip plane tickets for only 1015.84Php. How neat? Got this booked since April 25 and as the date approaches i’m quite hesitant to push through because of the seemingly bad weather. But i guess i’m good to go tomorrow with my two other colleagues. Yey! Goodbye to the weekly teleconferences tomorrow. I shall be wandering somewhere else… yet i haven’t packed my stuff!

Ok, barely 5 days to go and it’s the start of the ‘ber’ months. Just how time flies? It’s not long ago when we were busy planning for the section summer outing. Soon enough, we’ll be busy planning for the section Christmas party. Well, i hope there will be one. We usually have this wishlist for our ‘exchanging gifts’ and i sure hope writing ipods in the list would be fine. Of course it isn’t allowed nor not ideal since we do have a price range of items we could only wish for. Anyways, i’m still good with my old mp3 player. It still serves it purpose but i wouldn’t really mind having a new one. ;)

think otherwise

Should you have a bad day at work; think of the man who has been out of work for years.

Should you despair over a relationship gone bad; think of the person who has never known what it’s like to love and be loved in return.
Should you grieve the passing of another weekend; think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.
Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance; think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.
Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror; think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.
Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking what is my purpose? Be thankful. There are those who didn’t live long enough to get the opportunity.
Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them!

bad timing eh?

I’ve been praying hard that the weather this weekend would be graciously nice. I’d like to believe my fervent plea is answered as it didn’t rain since Monday. But i’ve forgotten to include in my silent whispers that i be not sickly these days as well! Arrggh i’m starting to have runny nose already. I hope this will disappear by tomorrow. Stubborn that i am, i stopped using my nasal spray for my allergy rhinitis. Now, i’m paying the prize!

destination weddings

Posted on Aug 26, 2009 under my thoughts with infos | No Comment

It has become a hobby of mine to read news especially lifestyle news through my mobile phone before i go to sleep. One time, I really was amazed to read that a Filipino-Chinese couple brought some 250 guests for their wedding outside the Philippines. Wow! I mean that’s pretty awesome (not too mention expensive) especially if the setting is a white sand beach. It’s becoming a thing today about destination weddings and if i am about to become a bride, I wouldn’t mind it especially if it’s booked from right away. If you sign up now, you get free honeymoon gift registry, wedding website and more! Not to mention that the bride and groom gets to stay free if you book plus discounts on events and group rooms. For the lovers out there wanting to be hitched, do check out the site and i’m sure you’d be dazzled by the wedding packages you could choose from. Wedding preparations could be exhausting but i guess it is equally fun.

when you look me in the eyes

Posted on Aug 25, 2009 under blahs, lyrics, music | No Comment

Oh dear, i’m really not a fan of the Jonas Brothers. I’m way over the days of Backstreet Boys and Boyzone, among others. I’m done feeling ecstatic listening to boybands. But i won’t deny i had been a fan and i still enjoy their music until these days. So back to the JB, as mentioned i’m not a fan but they have this one particular song that i like entitled: when you look me in the eyes.

If the heart is always searching
Can you ever find a home?
I’ve been looking for that someone
I never make it on my own
Dreams can’t take
The place of loving you
There’s gotta be a million reasons
Why it’s true

tuesday blues

Posted on Aug 25, 2009 under blahs at work | No Comment

The Monday blues continued today. I don’t know i just feel so bored. Everything’s dragging. Maybe because i really don’t have an actual work load to work on these days as the next software release is of next week yet. Or it’s probably because the long weekend’s taking it’s toll on me! Well, i should take advantage of the sober days.

today’s a monday

And i don’t feel much enthusiastic about getting up if not for the Miss Universe pageant. I think this year’s pageant is quite delayed, usually the contest happens in June or July. The venue of the pageant is awesome. The Bahamas is one of my must-visit-places. Not that i really have the means to go there but who knows right? I will save until i grow old, lol! Meanwhile, before i think of expenses, let me check out some life insurance quotes for i definitely need this. I better verify if we have this as part of our benefits at work. Otherwise, i have nothing later or my family will have nothing later. Knock on the wood!

I didn’t post for Pink Friday’s because i wanted to feel the non-working day. So i freed myself from any task - both online and offline.
