Sunny Days

September 22, 2014

I’ve had a full day today, a really good day spent with the greatest friends any person can have.

People have often said that to have one friend for life is already a blessing. Well, consider me super blessed because I don’t just have one really great friend, I have several.

I spent lunch until the late afternoon hours with my ACE team friends. They are the bestest (if there ever was a word) people in the world. Everytime I hang out with them, I always have the best time. And yes, everytime we come together, all we ever do is talk.

Still, there’s something that could be said about people you connect with in an unexplainable level. I won’t say we are of the same wavelength because, hello, we’re definitely not.

I could never belong to the same wavelength as Marie, whose knowledge and experience as a professional trainer is beyond words. I love how I learn so many things from all her stories. And even those things I already know about, I still appreciate it coming from her because it means that I, at least, know something that someone like her also knows. She is so fun to be around. Even her subtle jabs don’t feel like jabs at all.

And then there’s Tessa, whose fierce sweetness is simply adorable. This girl who’s very brilliant in mathematics and follows the logical side of things is possibly the best kind of support system anyone can have. I’m not sure how many personal things she’s witnessed from every one of us, but yeah, she’s always a witness, always present, always stable.

There’ also Coleen, that sporty chick who can probably outrun all of our partners. Well traveled and well-read, she can also sing the high notes effortlessly. When I was new to the ACE team, I remember people saying that she was strict, intimidating and difficult to please. Boy, am I glad I got to her good side. She’s this loyal little princess who knows a little of evey freaking thing there is.

And our resident nice guy, Jayjay, who we all hope will find the love of his life and live happily ever after. All nice guys always get that, after all. This nice guy was blind to all our monkey business when he was our boss. Thank God for that. But he has since made up for his naivete regarding our secrets and dark sides.

Let’s not forget Janice, the one person we all make fun of because, well, she likes to make fun of herself too. But we all love her that way. Easily the prettiest out of all of us. And yes, my man, Jeffrey, is completely besotted with her. Lol.

Lastly, there are the partners. Come to think of it, since we all met, I think I’m the only one who hasn’t changed partners at all. It’s amazing to realize we’ve already known each other for quite some time now, considering we’ve seen partners come and go, new partners replacing the old ones in our tight little circle.

These are the only people I’d trust to talk about me behind my back. I trust them because I know that even if they talk about me, they’re not doing it maliciously or with the intent of making me look bad to other people. It’s just that as friends, we all know our strengths and weaknesses, and we all accept each other in spite of all those.

The day I joined the ACE team was a really lucky day for me because it led me to this path of having them as friends. Even to this day, when we all have different work lives, we still manage to come together every now and then. I’m absolutely blessed to have these people in my life.

Another Sunday, Another Beach

October 24, 2012

Sundays are best spent at the beach, lounging around and away from the demands of work and life. That is why we decided to go to the beach on Sunday. After Jeff’s and my experience in Plantation Bay Resorts and Spa, we decided to try out Maribago Bluewaters Resort.

It was no Plantation Bay, but we still had fun. A day tour package included access to their pools and beach, a towel, and a lunch buffet.

The food was great. They actuallu jad more food choices than Plantation Bay. The dessert table had fruits and pastries to choose from, much to my delight.

The pools were big enough to accommodate many people. The water was very clean too.

The beach was also visually tempting.

This is certainly a place I can see myself going back to. There’s just a great combination of fun and serenity which does not dent your wallets too much.

Sundays Together

October 15, 2012

Last Sunday, Jeffrey and I spent a whole day in Plantation Bay Resort and Spa.

He has always wanted to experience what the place was like. It was so fun. Yes, the package is a bit pricey for most people, but the good thing is that an expensive package meant the place wouldn’t be too crowded.

I’m planning to take my mom there too, as a Christmas gift in December. I’m sure she’d love the place as well.

We started checking out the Savannah Park, where the wall climbing, tennis court, firing range, karaoke, and children’s park were located.

Jeffrey also tried wall climbing and was able to reach the top.

Everywhere you go, you’d find a pool or a lagoon. There are outdoor shops as well like henna tattooing and a couple of restaurants to match your food craving. We had lunch at the Kilimanjaro Cafe, where they served a sumptuous buffet.

image

I absolutely loved the dessert, although I do wish they had more fresh fruit.

image

They also let you try kayaking, which Jeffrey also took advantage of.

image

It was absolutely a perfect Sunday. I’d love to go back there.

Gap

September 22, 2011

Every now and then, I come to this blog to write something. Along with that, I keep hoping I’d once again find the passion and the commitment to keep this blog updated and start writing poetry again. The passion is there. Definitely. However, I can’t seem to commit anymore.

I love this blog. I writing. I love reading other blogs that I have come across in my WP journey. It’s just that my life is at a point where I can barely juggle my job, my family, and my personal “ME” time. Also, there’s not much to tell about my life these days. I stay at home and work all day. Get 4-6 hours of sleep during weekdays and make up for all the lost hours on weekends. Every Saturday, J and I would go out for dinner. Some Sundays, I also take my mom out to lunch or dinner (depending on what she likes). Some weekends, we feel like celebrating and we either go out with friends or ask them to come over. Most weekends, though, I am just too tired to mingle.

The only trip that’s definitely worth looking forward to is my trip to CDO on January. That’s still a very long time away. Also, I look forward to this year’s Christmas because I might have better reasons to celebrate. Between now and January, J and I might go on a random trip, but that’s not at all discussed yet. Other than the things I mentioned, there’s really nothing else. I don’t even have time to philosophize anymore. There’s nothing wrong with the way things are right now. In fact, every thing is just —————————- in place.

Diary-like

June 13, 2010

Aside from doing a little freelance writing, I also do a little part time virtual assistant jobs. I usually earn around $3 an hour. The tasks are relatively easy, and they only require around 20 – 30 hours a week. Most of these tasks are done during the weekends. I like it because I get to stay at home, and still earn a little money on the side. I am trying to save up because I want to buy something, I still love being a trainer, and I still enjoy working as one. However, I am also having a lot of fun doing this part time thing.

One good thing I get out of it is that I learn a lot of new things, mostly technologically related. Also, I get to spend my weekends earning money, meaning I don’t have to go out a lot anymore. Tomorrow will be Monday again. I am told I will be handling a new training class. I hope all things will turn out well.

April 11

April 11, 2010

I just sent my 15 nominees in jingle’s blog today.

I apologize if I was not able to include all of my poet friends there. At first I thought that 15 would be too much, and I would only be able to nominate less than that. As it turns out, 15 proved to be too little if I wanted to honor all of my poet friends here in WP and even in Blogspot.

I hope that everybody gets to have a good time with this Celebration. Jingle has been kind and thoughtful enough to organize these kinds of activities for bloggers. It has really made us all come together.

Happy Sunday to all of you, my beloved friends. I am so lucky to have you in my world. *wink* xoxo

Happy Easter

April 4, 2010

I am thinking of getting my own domain. The problem is that I think it would be too much work to maintain my own website, build the layout and all the scripts. I ma happy with what I have here in WP. It’s just that some of my friends keep urging me to get my own domain, so I can have the freedom to put any widget that I want. I’m not really sure if I’m already convinced.

Oh well, I guess I can put off having to make that decision until I have to. Sundays are my lazy days, as you all may already know. It’s Easter Sunday today, folks. I hope you’re having a great time with your friends or family. I am going to keep my post short, so you can all go back to having fun. 🙂 Tomorrow is Monday again. I have a new set of trainees to take care of. I hope that when get to the production floor, they will perform as they are expected to do so. Which reminds me, I have to get back to the first trainees I have ever handled. I have to check on their performance. Maybe I need to do a little re-training for them if needed. Wish me luck. And best of luck to you all… *wink*
