Touching moments on Michael Jackson memorial

It was touching.. sad.. and memorable memorial.. Truly fit for the King Of Pop. Brooke Shields who have known MJ since she was 13 tells of her memories with the Pop Icon. Mentioning that his favorite song is not any of his song, but "Smile" i think from Charlie Chaplin. I was in tears by the time she finished her speech. Magic Johnson's speech was funny relieving his reaction to know that MJ love KFC chicken. Very nice to know one of the funny side of Michael. And of course, it was a very good exposure to KFC. I love Will you be there by Jennifer Hudson who is glowing in white. As well as the kid from Britain, Shaneen. Maybe they saw Michael in him when he was young, that is why he was invited. Again, I was in tears when User sang Gone too soon, and when Stevie Wonder performed.

But i think there were two memorable moments on the funeral. When Jermaine Jackson sang "Smile" and when Paris, the daughter spoke. It was really touching, stabs your heart into pieces, makes you broke down in tears. She said, "Ever since I was born, daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just want to say that I love him so much."

It was just so sad.

Weddings Gowns - Jackets, Shrugs, Bolero,

Like most girls, we dreamt of our own wedding. We fancy wedding gowns, those flowing trains and trails, those lace and tulle. Even as grown up, I still love to look at wedding gowns. With the advent of internet, I get to see lots and lots of styles to choose from. Though I know my choice would still change when I finally started fitting and talking to designers and all, I still fancy a wedding gown with either a bolero or a shrug. So far here are some of the ones I like.

Here are some on a dress:

And then of course with the wedding gown

Don't you just love them all? What's your pick?

PERMANENT - David Cook

Is this the moment where I look you in the eye?
Forgive my broken promise that you'll never see me cry
And everything, it will surely change
Even if I tell you I won't go away today

Will you think that you're all alone
When no one's there to hold your hand?
When all you know seems so far away
And everything is temporary, rest your head
I'm permanent

I know he's living in hell every single day
And so I ask, oh God is there some way for me to take his place?
And when they say it's all touch and go
I wish I could make it go away but still you say

Will you think that you're all alone
When no one's there to hold your hand?
When all you know seems so far away
And everything is temporary, rest your head
I'm permanent, I'm permanent

Is this the moment where I look you in the eye?
Forgive my promise that you'll never see me cry

I am loving this song by David Cook. In fact, I even requested it to my favorite radio station and they have it played. As I am listening to it, I just learned the news that an old friend in the office is resigning. She came in my area and base on her current situation and predicament, resignation is the best option. As David Cook is saying he’s love to his brother is permanent, here I am thinking why there is nothing permanent. Last month, two best friends from work also left the company, just a week ago, I just received goodbye from a friend, same company again. I am at my 7th year, just had my 6th anniversary last April. Friends who have left are on the 6-7th year length of stay. Am I missing something? Is there a pattern? When you are on the same length of stay and all your friends are leaving, while for some time you are also feeling restless is it best to stay? But there are other factors to think of, family you support, finances, present economic situation, plus the thought that you are not sure what the culture is in the next company you work for.

I just hope I would survive this journey… then it would be my time to change my status to other than permanent.

He's out of our life... Michael Jackson

He left us already. The King of Pop is already gone. He died reportedly of cardiac arrest. Everyone I knew felt sad. There are news all over. It even shadowed the death of Farrah Fawcett (God bless her soul). All the stars are paying their respect and tribute. Everybody has kind words. He left us with a legacy of music. Almost every pop idol we know idolizes him. They all dance like he dance. Their music is patterned with his. There are even some who have jacket like his. And now he is gone. His music, his voice, his dance moves, and even what their called "wackoness" would still be left with us.

I just hope no one would ride with his popularity. I know for sure all his albums and cd's would be sold out. People would want to relive his music. If there are shirts or items about him would be sold out in minutes. People are like that. They realize your value when you are gone. Award giving bodies would put him in Hall of Fame now.

Let's pray for his family. Most especially his children. Everything he did in the past would be buried now. Not the time to take out the skeletons in the closet.

Let's continue to live with his music. Continue to love his voice. Continue to adore his dance moves.

Together let's pray for his soul. For the King of Pop was finally called to the Kingdom of God.

Gone too soon - Michael Jackson


So sad to hear it in the morning...

Yes... The King of Pop is gone.. Michael Jackson is dead. Reportedly of a cardiac arrest, they are still checking the cause. His death came less than a month before the start of his 50 sold out concerts at London's O2 arena. It's just so sad that the concert would start his comeback to the music scene. And would wipe out his debts.

Let us pray for his soul, as well as the children he have left.

Gone to soon. He is now out of our life. Michael Jackson at 50.

Adam Lambert - Mad World lyrics

Nice lyrics.. indeed a Mad World..

All around are me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrows
No tomorrow, no tomorrow


And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which in dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very very,
Mad world, Mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
And they feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me


And I find it kind of funny,
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I fine it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very very
Mad world, Mad world
Mad world, Mad world

La Luz Resort

*picture courtesy of La Luz resort

Since it is the 1st anniversary of the photography club in our office, we decided that our June activity would be in a beach. So we went to scout resorts in Laiya, we originally wanted to go to Kabayan Resort since we wanted to cook our own food, but then they the beach is rented by one company so we had our next pick, which is La Luz resort. We paid reservations and also rented a van as our transportation.

So we met in front of our office in Makati and leave at around 5am. Pick one member in Petron alabang, and then we went to Petron in South expressway to pick another member and also to buy some breakfast. We already had a list of our orders, after we gave our orders, the crew said that they didnt have burgers. So we again scrabble to take the orders of those who originally wanted burgers. Naturally, it would take long since others would still think of what they want. We have taken some time to finish our order. We then notice a woman get past us, walk by the next window where you will be paying. As we past her there, so said to us in an angry voice, "Next time, please list your orders!" well we had our list, it's just that Mcdo didnt have most of the items on our list so we had to think of another order. So off we went to Laluz, we arrive at around 830am. Laluz was at the end of the long line of resorts in Laiya San Juan Batangas. The resort looks nice, we are just there on a day trip. They gave us welcome drinks, but then again since the drive is around 3 hours, my friends and I went to the comfort room first. So we never get our welcome drink since when we came back they are also in our cabana. They gave us once cabana, since only one name was in the reservation. After resting for a few minutes, some of us changed into our swimwear, while the others setup their camera being photographers.

Three of us went to check the water, but high waves prevented us to even get near the water. The water looks too deep because of the waves. So we then went to explore the beach on the side. And there we saw rocks and a knee deep water. We asked to guard if we could swim there and he said we can, we just have to be careful with the rocks since it is slippery. We even joke the guard if he would save us, but he said he can always call the lifeguard since he has a radio.

We went to the water and on the other side of one big rock was a girl and a boy swimming there, upon seeing us, they went to the other big rock. :) We invaded their privacy. Well we cant do anything for that since we wanted to swim in that area. Since we are not swimmers, so the knee deep water is just fine with ours. Our other friends eventually went to were we are and we finally had our pics taken. I even dropped my goggles because I almost slipped in one rock. Good thing, there are kids who swim very good and I asked if they could check my goggles, and behold, they found it. I gave them P20 for their effort.

We said that we would just swim until 10am, but we didnt notice the time, she we enjoyed the waves in the rocks. When we came back, we just wait for around 10minutes and then we had our lunch buffet. Food was just fine, there is a fish (taste bland) , pork (grilled), veggies (sayote with shrimp), and soup is sinigang which is too hot (from chili) and have the fat of the pork, plus the fact that it does not taste pork sinigang because instead of kangkong it had mustasa. Desert was sweeten banana with sago and kaong. Mango juice and water was provided. Since the juice was not cold, we asked for buckets of ice.

I just didn't like their public rest room and shower. Since we are on day trip, we didnt have a room and we had to use the public rest room. They had tissue, but they dont have soap or liquid soap. It stinks, and there are only 3 shower area on the same comfort room. One shower area, dont have a place to put your bag and things.

While the others had their session on landscape photography on the rocks, some of us just rest on the cabana and take some nap, i rest on one near the beach, just like what is the picture above, took out some paper works, and read. I was able to take few minutes nap and then read again. Well since I really love looking at the beach, i was able to think straight, manage to plan some things at work, and finally write some things.

We then saw that it is low tide, but still with big waves, we finally went near the shore and play with the waves again. After we took our merienda consists of pansit bihon (went 2x), chicken sandwich, puto kutsinta and iced tea.

We then took our shower, dressed up and had some group pics before we go home. We left before 6pm but then again, it was super duper traffic in Alabang that we got at around 9pm in Makati. I finally got home to Cavite at around 11pm.

Overall it's just a fine day, to relax. I would recommend that since it is 3 hours drive, to spend an overnight instead of a day trip to spend more time to other activities like snorkelling and more swimming time.

Green Day - 21 Guns lyrics

Love this song...

Do you know what's worth fighting for
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You're in ruins...

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire?
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone

When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I

Taylor Swift- White Horse Lyrics

Taylor Swift- White Horse

Say you’re sorry
That face of an angel
Comes out just when you need it to
As I paced back and forth all this time
Cause I honestly believed in you

Holding on
The days drag on
Stupid girl,
I should have known, I should have known

I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairy tale
I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet,
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town,
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now it’s too late for you
And your white horse, to come around

Baby I was naive,
Got lost in your eyes
And never really had a chance
I had so many dreams
About you and me
Happy endings
Now I know

I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairy tale
I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet,
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town,
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now it’s too late for you
And your white horse, to come around

And there you are on your knees,
Begging for forgiveness, begging for me
Just like I always wanted but I’m sooo sorry

Cause I’m not your princess, this ain’t a fairytale
I’m gonna find someone someday who might actually treat me well
This is a big world, that was a small town
There in my rearview mirror disappearing now
And its too late for you and your white horse
Now its too late for you and your white horse, to catch me now

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa
Try and catch me now
Oh, it’s too late
To catch me now

Berlin mural depicting Leader's passionate kiss!!

Wow! is this picture true? Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev in a passionate kiss with East Germany's leader Eric Honecker? and a russian artist Dmitry Vrubel will work on the painting on the stretch of the Berlin Wall - East Side Gallery.

Well i know British men really do kiss. But leaders? Too awkward! You be the boss!

Carlos P. Romulo

My niece asked me to research the life of Carlos P. Romulo for her class assignment. I said that he is the first Filipino to be a Secretary General of the United Nations, (to which I found out later I was wrong) that’s it, because that is what I know of him. My niece then asked me a very innocent question, “United Nation? So he is Mr. Philippines there, when was that?” I smiled. I know I had to research more, so I could give a very definite answer to my niece. So on a very hot Saturday, I went to my old house (since PLDT have not approved the transfer of my phone and DSL) to do research.

Born Carlos Peña Romulo on January 14, 1899 in Camiling Tarlac. He is a son of a former Governor and was married twice. He was a diplomat, politician, soldier, journalist and writer. He held several positions in different newspaper and publications. He graduated from University of the Philippines – Bachelor of Arts (1918); and Master of Arts from Columbia University (1921). He had 82 honorary degrees from different international institution and universities such as Notre Dame University (1935); Rolins College (1946); University of Athens Greece (1948) and Harvard University (1950).

He served eight Presidents of the Philippines from Manuel L. Quezon to Ferdinand Marcos either as a member of the cabinet or as the country’s representative to the United States and United Nations.

He was the first Asian to win Pulitzer Prize in 1942. He wrote 18 books; The United, I walked with Heroes, I Saw the Fall of the Philippines, among others.

Among notable anecdotes on him:
At the third UN General Assembly, held in Paris in 1948, the USSR’s deputy foreign minister, Andrei Vishinsky, sneered at Romulo and challenged his credentials: “You are just a little man from a little country.” “It is the duty of the little Davids of this world,” cried Rómulo, “to fling the pebbles of truth in the eyes of the blustering Goliaths and force them to behave!”

When the UN official seal, which depicts the world, was being selected, Romy looked it over and demanded, “where is the Philippines?” “It’s too small to include,” explained US Senator Warren Austin, who headed the committee. “If we put in the Philippines it would be no more than a dot.” “I want that dot!” Romy insisted. Today, if you look at the UN seal, you will find a tiny dot between the Pacific Ocean and the South China Sea.

In later years, Romulo told another story himself about a meeting with MacArthur and other tall American generals who disparaged his physical stature. "Gentlemen," he declared, "When you say something like that, you make me feel like a dime among nickels."

In 1945 Rómulo acted as Philippine delegate to the United Nations Organization Conference in San Francisco. He was Philippine ambassador to the United Nations from 1946 to 1954. He distinguished himself as the first Asian to become president of the UN General Assembly (Fourth Session, Sept. 20, 1949). In 1950-1951 Rómulo acted as secretary of foreign affairs of the Philippine Republic and, from 1952 on (with some interruptions), as Philippine ambassador to the United States. He was a candidate for the position of United Nations Secretary-General in 1953, but did not win.

In 1980, he was extolled by United Nations Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim as "Mr. United Nations" for his valuable services to the United Nations and his dedication to freedom and world peace. He died at the age of 86 on December 15, 1985 and was buried at the Heroes’ Cemetery.

Boys over Flower –F4 fever is back!

This is the Korean drama adaptation of the Japanese manga, Hana Yori Dango which was first adapted by Taiwan through Meteor Garden which paved the way for the F4 (Jerry, Vic, Vaness & Ken) popularity including the hairstyles. With the group gone to different Asian countries to perform their songs where all the girls loved them. Japan followed the adaptation but it was not that popular as well as the artists selected to play F4, they said that the story lacks the quality that made people love Meteor Garden. This time around, the Korean adaptation shows very much like or to some, surpass the popularity and number of fans Meteor Garden have.

With Boys over flower, they changed the way the girl lead, Geum Jan-Di came in to the school plus they added some things that don’t have in Meteor Garden. Just the same, all the F4 boys are real cute, this time, the male lead Gu Jun Pyo has a curly hair and is so cute! If you look at him for long, you would notice some similarities on his features and that of Jerry Yan. He also has the look and smile that Jerry has so girls easily fall for him too. Another male lead and member of F4 vying for a spot in Jan Di’s heart is Yoon Ji Hoo. He doesn’t have the good looks that Vic Zhou had but he have the same charm that would make girls go gagah for him. In fact, I saw in the news that some fans celebrated his birthday in one restaurant. I think it was their first org gathering or eyeball of some sort. The other two members So Yi Jun and Song Woo Bin are equally cute themselves.

It was previously slotted on a late primetime slot, so with the late time I come home I get to watch the series. However because of a huge demand, the network made it to an early primetime slot. The series is very nice, when I got home early I get to watch some episodes. And I really really love it. Most of the episodes are funny, especially the when either Jun Pyo or Jan-Di is angry or the time they are fighting.

I definitely love this series. I hope they would replay it every weekend so I could watch those episodes I missed. It’s fun to watch and would make you feel like a teenager again falling for your crush!!!

Hotshot – Jerry Yan, Alan (Show) Lou & Wu Chun

When I saw a teaser of it before, I was interested to watch not because of the story but because of the characters. I love Jerry Yan in Meteor Garden (everybody loves him!) and Wu Chun in Hana Kimi. I was able to watch few of the starting episodes and I became hook on the story. Jerry Yan is still “guapo” and his very cute look and smile. I’m beginning to fall from him again. The other guy, Alan Lou is not that cute in the beginning but when you stare at him for long his cuteness would show. I also love how he projects his role. L I also love the face of the two girls, the Coach and the one that both Jerry and Alan like. I didn’t get to see Wu Chun though, since I only get to watch the early part. I have to return to work after a few days off I was not able to watch the series again. However since I was on leave last Monday, I was able to watch the series again. I found out that tomorrow will be the last airing day. Hmmm… so sad..

Good thing it would a holiday tomorrow, so I am looking forward to seeing these three cute guys playing basketball the last time.

Adam Lambert Rolling Stone cover

Just saw the Rolling Stone cover of Adam Lambert. It's a very gay cover, with all his signature look. Black shirt, metal belt and dark eyeliner. He even have a snake on this thigh. To quote “I don’t think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I’m gay,” Lambert says in the new issue of Rolling Stone, hitting newsstands this week. (VIA ROLLING STONE).

He also signed a record deal with 19/RCA. So we'll just wait for his upcoming album and we'll see how good it would be.

Meet Joe Black

I had the chance to watch this movie over the weekend. I bought the VCD a year ago, but then again I never got the chance to watch it. Just recently I receive a portable DVD player as a gift. So I've checked all the CDs, VCDs, and DVD that i have and chance upon Meet Joe Black. I admit I was intrigued with this movie before and since it was on sale I bought it even though I know the chance to watch it is very slim.

The movie was very nice. Dealing with death, love and betrayal. I love the three main characters and actors. Brad Pitt as Joe, Anthony Hopkins as Bill and Claire Forlani as Susan - Bill's daughter. It was refreshing to see an very angelic face of Brad Pitt, and I love Claire Forlani's face especially when she smiles and the way she pouts her lips. It was a first Anthony Hopkins movie that I saw. No, I haven't seen Silence of the Lamb nor will I watch Hannibal. But I must say, I was very impressed with his casual delivery of lines yet you feel the intensity and the feelings he is trying to expressed and convey.

This movie thought me something about love. To quote Bill Parrish "Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived. " Many people nowadays marry for all the wrong reasons that is why they end their marriage with a very simple reason - irreconcilable differences. Because either one does not want to compromise, communication is lacking in their relationship, respect is not given and love is not in abundance.

Another lesson learn is about caring for others. "I knew I wasn't going to write the great American novel, but I also knew there was more to life than buying something for a dollar and selling it for two" by Bill Parrish when saying he doesn't want to sell his company to Bontecou. Saying he is not after the profit, but what he wanted and not exploit the company at the expense of others. Sure he is rich, but he doesn't want to become richer just for having another profit. Do the businessmen of today have the same idealism that Bill Parrish had? I hope many still have.

One last quote I really love is again from Bill Parrish "tell you my one candle wish: that you would have a life, as lucky as mine where you can wake up one morning and say, "I don't want anything more." How selfless he is wishing for others on his birthday.

I wished that before I reached my 65th birthday, I would wakeup and say I don't want anything more but for others to be having the same.

Based on Wikipedia,”Disappointment is the feeling of dissatisfaction that follows the failure of expectations to manifest. It is a source of psychological stress. Disappointment is a subjective response related to the anticipated rewards. The psychological results of disappointment vary greatly among individuals; while some recover quickly; others mire in frustration or blame or become depressed.”

No wonder there are a lot of depressed people. Imagine being excited for something else, thinking about it the whole time. Always checking the time so it would happen, feeling that “happiness” within you. Anticipating that something good will come your way. Telling people around you about it, most of the time bragging about it. But then when the time came, bwalah! It didn’t happen; something came that disrupt the process. Suddenly Mother Nature was against you. All the excitement, the high energy that lifts you up, the happiness within you, all of it, evaporated in mid air in just one pop! It must be the feeling when dementors came near you to suck your happiness. And now what’s left of you, but pain, hurt, anger, negative thoughts coming all over you. Swearing the world, cursing people, blaming everybody.

I was very excited to have my 15minutes of massage. That is something I wanted to do for ages. Ever since the work stress became a heavy burden. Something you wanted to take off your chest. It’s like a load you carry on your shoulders. I was so excited when I came in after lunch reading the email from our HR about the free massage since there are 4 blind masseurs invited to come to the office. I said, finally! Even if I’m not in an air-conditioned room or lying in a soft bed, at least I get to relieve stress. I excitedly sign in; I was the 3rd on the list of the 2nd masseuse. I went on my scheduled time, but then again, they are not yet finished. I don’t want to stand there waiting for it to finish since I don’t want the masseurs to feel the pressure to end the current session because the next one is already waiting. I came back after 5 minutes and they are not yet finished, after 5 minutes I came back. And lo! Another one has taken my place. Talk about list, talk about schedule, talk about the time. Wooo!!! When do we learn about courtesy? Disappointment rushed into me. Nah, I wouldn’t want to go over there and stand for somebody to finish. I find it rude, there’s a reason why there is a list and why there is a schedule. And now what do I feel? It’s already 40mins after the incident, and still I felt hurt, I feel the pain, and I am disappointed. So now, another stress has been loaded on my back. It now hurts, I know because I am stressed. One day, when my schedule permit or my budget allows, I would have my massage. But not now, because I am disappointed.

Ferrero Rocher

Who doesn't love this chocolate? Every girl I know loves it, especially when their loved ones give it to them. With that special box and packaging, it surely is a lovely gift.

From Wikipedia: "Ferrero Rocher is a spherical chocolate sweet made by Italian chocolatier Ferrero SpA, the producer of Tic Tac and Nutella. The sweets consist of a whole roasted hazelnut encased in a thin wafer shell filled with hazelnut cream and covered in milk chocolate and chopped hazelnuts and walnuts. The sweets contain 72 Calories (304 kJ), and are individually packaged inside a gold-coloured wrapper."

Everything in it is really nice, from the gold wrap, to the crispy wafer and milk chocolates that cover the hazelnut inside. Yummy!!! Really love this chocolate if only the price would go down since it really cost a lot. Anyhow, this is one of the chocolates on my favorites list, of course after my ever favorite brand, Lindt!

Herve Leger Bandage dress by Max Azria

Ever since I saw Hollywood celebrities wearing Herve Leger Bandage dress, I wanted one for myself. I saw how they looked good and sexy on the dress. I can feel how they are proud with their body no matter how size they are. I wanted to feel and have that confidence too. There is something with those bandage dress that makes a women be a woman. Well upon looking at the price, I know I cannot afford one, so I’ll just show you some of my favorites on his Spring 09 collection.

They even have swimsuits..

Oh i wish to have one. Maybe someday, when a generous person would come along. For now, i'll just enjoy looking at the pictures.

Franchising business

I have long wanted to put up my own business, but the problem is always the capital. I wanted just a small business because I wanted to watch it grow and become big. Plus the fact that I only has small savings so that means only small capital. The most likely option is franchising. The business already has a name in the market and with the marketing approach as advertised by the franchisor. Most of the franchise package includes the use of business name and logo, training to staff, marketing strategy and approaches plus minimum materials or amount of products. The problem then is what franchise to choose. Since it is the likely option, most people are into it. Almost all the products are in the most populated area. You don’t have any place to put it.

Anyways, on my way to work yesterday I found a building that is being constructed, it would most likely be a mall and I came upon the idea of franchising. And then I have the same dilemma again. What franchise to choose? Would I have the time to manage it? I am a full-time employee. And I only commute to and from work. Work is 2-3 hours away from home. Aahhhh… I wanted to put up my own business. Have to work on it someday…

Single lady blues..

Heck.. sometimes i hate going to events.. you bump into old friends, classmates, neighbors or acquaintances. and the course of the conversation would be.. "how are you?", "married?", "oh still single?", "why not?", "no bf yet?", "good thing you had a bf", "so when is the wedding bells?" i mean, common people. when would these questions change? do single women have no right to be single? and since when do single women need to be married always? ask any married woman if they are happy? chances are there are at least half of them who would say i'm happy when i'm still single.

I know my time to become a married woman would come. But don't tell me when to get married. The right person would come along. The right place would be found. The right time would be when me and my partner knew it is time.

Make your office “Green”

In our office, there have been a lot of suggestions and improvements done to make it a “Green” office. I would like to share some of them.

1. Convert urinals to waterless models – this would save lots of water
2. Turn off some of the lights when not in use. Turn off when going to lunch, going to a meeting, or leaving the office for the day.
3. Replace fluorescent tubes with more efficient ones. Check if the lights you are using are energy efficient.
4. Recycle old bond papers by using the other clean page.
5. Install hand dryers in comfort rooms as to minimize use of tissue paper for drying hands.
6. Donate old newspaper and yellow pages to worthy causes like for example, in Bilibid prison.
7. The company gave grocery bags to use. Refuse any plastic bag when buying groceries and use the bag all the time.

These are just simple recommendations but can save the environment and make it a worthy place to live in the coming years. Let us all join our hands in doing the best we can to save our environment.

Finding the right furniture

For more than 2 months now, I have searching for a dining table and living room set for my new house. My first ever own house, from my own money, a.k.a. own perspiration and blood. J (but of course, 80% of the whole amount is on loaned). I have been going to furniture shops , home furnishing stores and of course the net especially on ethan allen site. Then I found some inspirations..

Living room..


They really look nice and elegant. It would really add glamour to my simple house. But then the cost for the living room and dining set is my whole budget for all the furnishings needed on the house. Sigh... anyways.. these are just my inspirations.. In my next post, i would update you on what i ended up buying. Are these inspirations, just became inspirations or did I happen to get them. Till next post.
