1 - marvin and i met at magallanes mrt to stroll and eat in sm makati. he had to buy something so I accompanied him. we took a cab going to the office. the name of the cab is "mathew 16:33-34" - the meaning of the verse is typed in small sheet of paper, taped near the window. it says "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Thank you for the wake up call God.

2 - i had a good impromptu training with one of the seniors here in the floor. i know you won't be able to read it but thanks chagz.

3 - OMG - i read an email from Loyalist - the one responsible for auditing the certification in
ITIL and it says I PASSED THE CERTIFICATION. WHOA!! Super Good News - I love it. I even printed the result just to really see and evaluate that I indeed pass. harhar.

Today i felt a little bit better compared to yesterday.

I thank marvin for always being there. without him, working in makati will really be lonely. ILOVE YOU HON.

Down and Troubled

it has been nearly 2 months since i migrated from Pasay to Makati for work, in pursuit of higher pay, and a different work environment.

I joined an IT company. Armed with nothing but my experience in call center, a trainer certification, my award kuno, my three year experience being a trainer, my DSL background and some basic knowledge in programming - i went for it. I thought it will make or break my career. Sigh. I know I have learned so many things already but I feel like I still lack some more knowledge. I will be running a New Hire Class next week and I am still weak. I still don't know how to 'debug' and run things in AI. Good Lord help me. My managers are expecting more than what I can provide yet.

Come to think of it, I know the solution to my problems, I know what to do - but I'm not doing it. Why Mae? I don't know. I need more motivation, I need more passion to learn. I need more reasons to become thirsty for knowledge again.

I am moved by the negative forces I am thinking. STOP it mae. be humble. you need help.

Dear God,
please grant me the humility to do the things I have to do. make me humble in front of other people. grant me the wisdom and knowledge that will help me in fulfilling what is expected and asked of me. help me follow what you have laid in front of me.
Thank you.

** sorry about my post ** maybe only me or only few people can understand, this is me - feeling down and troubled.

ITIL Training Certification

Honestly, I think my brain needs to exercise more. When I was in training, little do I retain the information being discussed by the instructor. I had to take glutaphos to aid me in studying - after all, it will really be great if i passed the certification.

Way to go ITIL! :)

Here's the third day of the certification and the examination proper. I had to capture the experience in case I won't pass - at least I have a souvenir - harhar.

World Topps at RCBC

Just a random restaurant in RCBC. I had a very good Sisig Topps today.

Enjoyed the ITIL training too - although I failed in the mock exam. hehe.

Monday Morning for a Change

I have to report in the morning today because of a Certification Training I will be joining for three days.

It felt so good waking up in the morning... for ages I've been reporting at night, for ages I've experienced the ups&downs of traveling in the PM. Today - I felt refreshed. It's good to see the sun rising and you're own your way to work - not going home from work.

ooooooooops, on the other hand. Traffic. super traffic i should say. and a lot of people are on lunch by 11:30 AM onwards... nakow.

Happy Mother's Day! 08

To all the mother's out there - here's my sincerest shout out:

And we all know why they are special. Anyway, I had my usual mani-pedi home service early afternoon. My nails are shouting magenta-pinkish-purple in color. About 2PM we (my sister and mama) went to the hospital to pay a visit to my tita. we bought a cake for the other mom's who are there, taking care of my tita. I took a picture of the cake (not so special by the way), kaya ko sinabi is because i took a picture of the cake with my inaanak - hehe. he's so guwapo.
Anyway, after a short visit - the three of us headed to SM Manila for a hair treatment. I paid a good 2-digit worth of thousands. I wasn't shocked but for me it was something I think really expensive. I normally have my hair relaxed and all that but I don't spend more than 2K for it, and now that we all had treatment - i felt the bill rocketed to the ceiling of some sort - mahal! hindi pa rebond to ha. Anyway, what can I do - i just had a look at the receipt and never glanced at it again. hahaha.
But I love my hair - got a Loreal product too by the way - mahal pa din. hahaha.
Happy Mom's Day Again!
Ma - i love you.

    Happy Birthday to Me

    Today i'm celebrating my 25th birthday.

    Yesterday, Marvin and I spent few good hours together. We had breakfast together since after 2 hours of my shift is the end of his shift - we can actually catch up by then. After breakfast, no mall was open yet so we decided to take the bus going to Baclaran church. Whenever I pray in Baclaran, I can say my prayers get answered. You know that my tita is pretty ill still. After baclaran, we went to MOA. Had a little stroll and spent the day together.

    Today, I didn't think I'll celebrate or something like that. We didn't even cook anything, but mama decided to have spaghetti at the least. I went to church this afternoon then went to Metro hsopital to visit my tita for the first time.

    She's not in a pleasant condition. I couldn't stop myself from crying when I saw her. I told her that its my birthday and I sent a wish to heaven that she be healed. I went home a bit satisfied - to finally be able to see her.

    After this day, the countdown will begin for my 26th :p

    There are many reasons to thank the Lord. What I am today is because of him and the many blessings he showered me with. I wish that he continuously gives me the opportunity to bring back the glory.

    Thank you Lord for everything.

    For my TITA

    my mom's eldest sister is still in ICU. She was admitted last Thursday - all of her internal organs failed - dehydration of some sort - I don't know. Now Metro Hospital is trying their best to restore all her vital organs. Currently, she can move, she can smile but she couldn't open her eyes.

    Pray for her

    and for the rest of my family.
