23 days more

as i process the necessary documents needed for my travel as well as for my officemates’, everybody was delighted to know that i will be leaving for yokohama to attend an official duty. it was really overwhelming on my part because i just found out that a lot of people¬†believe in my skills (oftentimes, i feel im invinsible to everybody.. hehehe). i can also feel their excitement for my trip especially when i told them¬†that i will be travelling alone.¬†i remember when my mom used to boast me to her friends and to anyone whom she usually meet. if only she’s with me right now,¬†i know she will be¬†most happy for her only darling…. this is¬†one of the moments that i miss with my mom… if¬†she is still alive right now,¬†i can say that her excitement for the trip would be very visible to the extent that she will already prepare¬†the things that¬†i will bring way ahead¬†as if she is the one who’s leaving….. ¬†¬†

24 days left

another day has come…one more step before i would leave my¬†usual life to face a new chapter. As i walk my way along makati avenue going to the tricycle terminal, I cant help thinking that i will surely miss the busy streets of ayala where i walk everyday to and from the office. I read a blog from my best bud yesterday, i was touched when she said that she will miss all our adventures and the time we spent together…

as i prepare my things right now, i am also preparing myself…. preparing to leave the life i used to live since birth and preparing to face a new life so strange….but whatever the outcome will be, its a chapter that will be a very big part of what i will become in the future….

25 days to go…

scared… excited… sad…these are what i am feeling right now just thinking that i only have 25 days with my family and friends . I am bound to leave for another¬†Japan in order to fulfill a major task as a secondment staff for one whole year.

Scared because it would be my very first time to live alone. I always travel but in the past but I was not given the chance to live on my own. Eventhough its already the wee hours of the day, I still find myself sleeping on my bed.

Excited because it would be my first to go to Japan. Also, i would be my with my newly-met friends for quite a long time. This would give me the opportunity to bond and have with them. Most improtantly, going there and rendering my service to the CITYNET organization would open the doors for more travel, new people, and a lot of training.

Sad because I will be away from my family and friends for one whole year….shocks…. just thinking about it makes me feel like crying right now.

To leave or not to leave

There will come a point in one’s life that one would feel exhausted of his usual daily activities that he feels he is not growing as a person – mentally, physically, socially, economically, and emotionally. And the only solution to end all this is to step out of the box and explore a greener pasture. A place where he can redeem his self and try new things which would allow him to make use of his undiscovered talents and likewise enhance his old skills and knowledge. However, challenges would always hinder one’s decision to leave the box leaving him at the crossroad as to whether stay or leave. On one hand lies the opportunity of finding a new place to explore and the possibility of finding new happiness… on the other hand lies the offer of a big step in the current career that would not only earmark own credibility as a skillful individual but would also give pride and honor to the organization. With this, a huge question which needs to be answered: To Leave or Not To Leave????

meeting up

Technology has really gone a long way not only in terms of business and economic development but even on the personal level of the people. What am i saying? Nowadays, relationships have been very vissible through on-line only through the internet but also through mobile chatting.¬†Gone are the days of visiting the girl’s house and pleasing the parents through water-fetching and wood works; hello to¬†text courting and eyeball dating.¬†

¬†Relationships nowadays were made through internet courting with the help of chatrooms, friendster or myspace ūüôā And what is really amazing is that two people from both end of the world were able to share forever through the power of today’z technology.

life changes….

Its really amazing how people could cope up with everyday changes that come in our way… good or bad, these changes have made us stronger and a lot wiser as we greet the morning breeze. When I was a little girl my mom would always tell me that for a person to become successful in life, he needs to make the most of what is at hand and be flexible to the changes that would come along the way. This principle has been my guide for the past 20 years of my life. Its not that I dont trust my capability especially in terms of planning but as they say mothers know best. No matter how well you plan ahead, a lot of changes – minor or major, would definitely challenge you as an individual and as a team player, if you work in a group. So how could we cope with these “changes?” I think the first step that one should undertake is to treat the change as a challenge for you to come up with a better output. One time, a few hours before a major activity, a 34-member delegation suddenly said that they wont be joining the activity anymore. As an effect, we were left with almost half number of participants. With this, we were left with so much food and a huge space in our venue. Seeing this, my group members were terrified because we cannot cancel the food orders anymore. Since I can’t do anything with the huge space, I focused myself on doing something for the leftover food. So what I did, I distribute it to the drivers and helpers saying that its our treat to them because of their untiring help for the success of the event. Not only did it solve our problem with leftovers, it also help me strenghten our publicity to those who help us in the activity. As a result, a more efficient service from them plus all the smiles from their faces everytime we cross ways. ūüôā
