Ok – I’m back.

My last post was in December 2012, a little more than 4 years ago. A lot has happened since then, God has always been gracious and faithful and loving. I’m hoping to get back to writing again since I’m getting this urge to do so in the past few days. So, here I am! Join…

Maligayang Araw ng Kasarinlan!

They guard our waters everyday with mighty hearts bigger than the Philippine ships. Probably biting more than what they can chew but duty calls and no matter how small, the Philippines is still standing proud because of these men and women who are guarding our territories and protecting our sovereignty in the Panatag Shoal. Please include them in…

And suddenly, Hannah was calm

Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.” She said, “May your servant find favor in your eyes.” Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast. – 1 Samuel 1:17-18   Today, I’m reminded that I should…

In Memoriam: Fatso

Fatso, my feisty but beautiful cat of nearly 11 years left me; or better yet, I guess it’s more proper to say that I let her go. Tests showed that her kidneys were failing and that her condition was grave.  If she was fighting, I would have fought with her, but her temperature was dropping…

In Memoriam: Doggy

We wanted to name her Darla, like the cute girl from the movie Little Rascals.  But she was just so… rowdy as a kitten and the most suitable name for her was Dog. There were two kitten choices from Fatso’s litter, we wanted to keep the other one because it was cuter but Dog just…

Okay, I’m back :-)

Well, hello there 🙂 The last thing I want to do is for this blog to have any negative effect on everyone, so after all that ruckus, I’m here again and I’m back putting all those things behind me. It’s December, it’s nearing Christmas.  I have never and will never claim to be perfect or faultless,…

Please don’t have a copying spree :-)

Wikipedia says that: Plagiarism is defined in dictionaries as the “wrongful appropriation,” “close imitation,” or “purloining and publication” of another author‘s “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions,” and the representation of them as one’s own original work,[1][2] but the notion remains problematic with nebulous boundaries. Wikipedia also says “Content scraping is copying and pasting from websites[59] and blogs.[60]“ Recently, I encountered…

Nothing like hand-written notes

Over the years and because of technology, we have changed the way how we communicate to each other.  A few years back, I thought receiving greetings/quotes through text messaging was already revolutionary, and I guess it really was. Overtime though, sharing of information has changed drastically and a lot of communication is now happening over…

In everything, give thanks

October has always been a happy month for me because it’s my birthday month.  People who are close to me know that I value this day very much and I really want it celebrated.  Over the years, I even mark this day on the calendars of my officemates, I text my friends 15minutes after the…

On mentors

A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could… I have been seeing this quote in my desk for days now.  The quote is in the Mentoring calendar given to every employee in MSC.  I don’t know why is it in that page but I love…

Putting first things first and personal choices

Being in payroll means that every month is a feat and a challenge for me and my team. Especially in the JAS months where most of the transfers happen. But this August would be especially challenging due to a lot of events happening at work and at the same time my personal life that require…
