Just one of my pink slippers… don’t you love its pink flowery design? So spring! Haha! As if we have spring season here.

I can’t find these slippers too! The house is really a mess. Sigh. :(

starting and ending

Posted on Apr 22, 2011 under blahs, my thoughts with infos | No Comment

My friends from the other side of the planet are starting to get out and enjoy the sun. Still a bit cold but it’s sunny already. Saw some pictures in England though they’re in the beach, they still have to sport some jackets as the winds is still chilly. And some friends in Michigan are a bit frustrated because it snowed again last week. Bummer!

But worry not! Days pass by quickly and soon you’ll realize you have to ditch those jackets and sport the cosiest shirt and pants you can imagine. It’s time to buy some new rocawear and strut your stuff in the park or in the malls or wherever.

Summer is almost over for us but when i get back from my getaway, i’ll make sure the nephews, nieces, cousins and I will have a fun time together in the beach! Hope they could pick where to go already. ;)

continuous education

Posted on Apr 10, 2011 under blahs, my thoughts with infos | No Comment

Competition is everywhere. Survival of the fittest as they say. So to keep us at par with our respective disciplines at work, continuous education would be a key factor. But busy as we are with our careers, sometimes it would almost seem unimaginable and not doable to juggle up work and school at the same time.

But worry not, for those of you who are still seeking to go to school to further your studies, there’s an online university you can rely on. After all, everything is almost online nowadays.

Talk about online, i gotta check my college alumni’s site and see if there’s any changes to my graduates’ course curriculum. I just wish there’s an online university i can change school to. Motivation may kick in and i might just get back to my master’s degree. Just when i think about it, i get lazy already. Lol! :D

i love pingpong!

Posted on Apr 10, 2011 under blahs, my thoughts with infos | No Comment

I’m never the athletic type. Not that i hate sports but i’m just not fond of them. However, i may be poor in sports but actually there are two ball games that i love to play. Bowling and pingpong. But i love pingpong (or table tennis) the most. It’s the only thing i’m interested in joining at the office whenever my colleagues would organize sportsfest or tournaments. Not that i’m really good at it? I probably suck at it but for me it is the most fun thing to do and the only sport i try to get my hands on. I actually have a racket so that whenever i have time, i get to play it sometime. I wanted to have a pingpong table outside our house but the area is too small. Then i see this newgy ping pong online. Oh my! It’s pingpong level up and i wanna have it! Geez! It’s really cool.

If i have this ping pong table, it would mean playing the sport often. And it would really be a plus since i get to exercise. I’m seriously thinking of ways on how can i have a table soon. Hahah! Is there a folding table available? There couldn’t be a mini table though? Lol!

on doing things alone

Posted on Apr 07, 2011 under blahs | No Comment

I’ve never watched a movie alone. Though it’s something I’ve been meaning to do but I just don’t have the guts and like most other stuffs I have in mind, I’ve always put the idea aside.

Then I heard a colleague of mind is going to watch a concert alone. I’m dumbfounded. I think it’s even harder. I mean, I feel it’s going to be awkward cheering or singing along alone. But I’m pretty sure it’s going to be an amazing experience. After all, she’s going to watch Bruno Mar’s concert. ;)

I would have gone with her had she told us earlier she’s going to watch. No more tickets were available by the time she told us about it. Oh well, next time…

8hrs

Posted on Apr 07, 2011 under blahs at work | No Comment

In most offices, working 8hours/day is the most common. Guess we are not that conventional. We work 9.6hours/day from Mondays to Fridays. They say it’s a compressed work hour schedule. Well i think it’s better than having to work 8hours/day from Mondays-Saturdays. Then again, I’ve heard that the company just across ours is working only 8hours/day Mondays to Fridays. Wow!!! Isn’t that just awesome?

So, if we are to work 8hours/day in a particular week, it is a much appreciated delight - thanks to public holidays that fall on Saturdays. For this week’s case, thanks to “Araw Ng Kagitingan” or Valor Day.

Most of my colleagues are already out of the office as early as 2:00pm. You bet it right, by that time, I just arrived. Lol! :D See, after all, I’m not that conventional. :P

definitely not my kind of circles

Posted on Apr 06, 2011 under blahs, my thoughts with infos | No Comment

It’s probably because i’m sleeping late or i don’t have enough vitamins or whatever. But seriously i’m looking for an effective dark circles under eyes treatment right now. I have been looking at all my recent photos and there’s no denying that the unwanted circles around my eyes are very prominent already. A friend told me i should try using some concealers but i doubt it. I’d probably just look as someone who just gone out of a Halloween party! Haha!

Tips anyone? Is this something i should just ignore? Maybe not, makes me look older! Sigh.

respite trip

Posted on Apr 06, 2011 under blahs, my thoughts with infos | No Comment

Exactly a week ago, on the same time as now, i was busy packing my stuff. In few hours then, i would be heading to Negros. It was a pretty tiring trip but an enjoyable one. It was a much needed retreat from the busy and monotonous days at work. It would have been fancier had i been crunching on some Sharis Berries strawberries while lazing under the breezy winds by the seashore. Fantastic isn’t it? But that will be another long story to be told in my other blog. I’m still saving some worthy to be posted pictures of mine. Lol! Time flies huh!
