One Christmas Party - Fashionista : Ramp Models

One Christmas Party - Fashionista : Ramp Models

Last December 13, 2008 we held our Christmas Party at SBC Party Venue. Our theme was "Fashionista", and I was lucky to have someone to sponsor for my outfit.

We had several door prices that night. Major prices like 29" TV, Refregirator, Gas Range with Hood, and a Washing Machine. Almost everybody took something home. I was lucky to have a set of bedsheet, and luckier when an officemate asked me to swap with her 1G flashdisk. We trade then, she said she wanted to give it to her family and I said yes because at the back of my mind I remember giving it to my younger sister too.

Since the theme of the party was Fashionista, everyone had the chance to nominate for the Fashionista of the Night. With my sponsored outfit and accessories as well, I was nominated to be one of the ramp models. I think I amused most of the people (9), specially knowing I was with the nominees.

A Christmas Jingle Contest was also included. Each team were to compose songs related to Philcom and sing it to the tume of any Christmas songs. Our Technical personnels did great jobs composing. I was so happy our team won the first price.

Now let me share this video to entertain you with the ramp models at our party (I'm number 9, hehehe). You can guess who won too,hint 527341. Thank you for reading. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

What Mother Teresa Said About Life...

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.

...I do pray that I can live my life as to what Saint Mother Teresa said so as to glorify my Creator!

Confirmation

"Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory." Psalm 50:15

I remember, "Where is God"? article in Didache the other day, where the above passage is a confirmation.

It is true that every single second of our lives, God is with us. He is always there with us. During good times nor bad times.

However, during great times in our live, most of us forget God in our lives. We often do not recognize God.

But during bad times most of us begin to ask, "Where is God?" Most of us only seek God in our lives when we are down. But some even blame God for the bad things.

But we all know He is always there for us. And bad times are there to remind us that He is with us. And its true, after the bad times, we can then realize He is always with us when we are able to surpass storms in our lives.

It is but right to give Him the glory He deserve. To God be the glory! Amen.


...thanks for the comments...God bless!

Now You See Me, Now You Don't!










Working with webpage designing, I bump into a webpage maker (wpm) software. So I was hooked with a software I consider something new. I did not notice how much I enjoyed it not until I learn that its about 2AM when I shutdown my pc.

The software I had at first, downloaded for free, was a trial version of wpm. It is valid only for 15days, if not registered. Luckily, I came to learn where to get a registration code, and eureka! its now registered.

Inevitable for webpage designer not to use a photoshop. So I found some of our lovely pictures in Camiguin. I uploaded some edited photos in friendster and of course I would love to post them here too.

So first, I decided the photo to be edited, to insert the copyright thing in it. Then later decided that I love the sand more. So sorry for the faces were erased here. Hehehe. Thus you can see the sand in the pictures above and don't see them below.

November...

Its not a movie...but next month is November...so here I am enjoying my newly formatted pc (will blog why soon). I re-installed the things I love for my program files.


I successfully found the back-up files in my old cd, and luckily photoshop was there. So I tried to refresh the things I needed to for photoshop editting, I badly need for webpage designing.

Calendar came to my mind, when I found an old photo of mine way bad 1998. We had our necklacing ceremony at that time when a photo was capture, and the photographer added a calendar with it. It was a beautiful picture, but I hate the calendar in it so I framed my picture with my sister's picture covering the calendar hehehe.

Ok so I am browsing the internet for some great ideas. To make a calendar with my photo will be as easy as using the photoshop unlike in 1998. So I am posting the finished product, with an edited picture (where the background was taken from Singapore but without me, then I decide to paste my photo in it to make you all believe I once visited the said country hehehe of course still using photoshop a year ago). Also since next month is November, I decided to make an advance calendar for you all. Enjoy this link too for easy calendar making with photoshop.

Photoshop Again

Yes am so inspired to do some photoshop works today. In preparation for web design that I will be submitting very soon, I review a few of my photoshop skills again (as if hehehe). I wanted to update my blog, but since am so busy, I will just share my output.





Inspired by the latest Tennis US Open results, I desided to work on the US Open Champions. Namely the golfer, Tiger Woods and the recently concluded Tennis Champ Roger Federer. I just loved to know from a close friend that the two are also friends. Well I hope you can leave me a comment on these photoshop work I did.





Before I forget, I'd like to say belated happy birthday to Mama Mary, and to my beloved one and only kuya.

"Aim for Ace"


"Aim for Ace" or in Japanese it "Ace wo Nerae". Yes I indeed found the link which made me able to watch the episodes of this drama.

I remember a year ago, I found this drama so lovely. It was a great timing, when I first started to love tennis. I onced played tennis with a friend and her Japanese friend. That was the start of me to fall in love with tennis. Well l have included the description of this series below related to tennis.

The link to this series not only include Japanese TV drama series but also includes other asian tv series like Korean and Taiwanese. A friend of mine actually mention about http://www.mysoju.com/ but I felt sad yesterday when its n0t working. Then I tried searching at google about mysoju, then I was happy to find a recommended link which is http://www.dramafreak.com/ and made me even happier when I found "Ace wo Nerae".
Alternative Title: Aim for the Ace! / ???????!

Description: "Ace", an all time favorite comic book that sold 15 million copies is finally dramatized! A positive success story of an ordinary high school girl who gradually discovers her hidden talent of tennis through severe trainings designed by her strict coach. Can she every become an "Ace" tennis player? Hiromi Oka decides to join the high school tennis club from the moment she saw the star player Reika's (Matsumoto) excellent and smashing play. However, once the tennis lesson began, Hiromi finds herself bored in the succession of simple practice swings. One day, Munakata becomes appointed as the new head coach of the tennis team. His special training was nothing but original, extreme, and severe. In addition, he suddenly chose Hiromi, a tennis beginner, to be the member of the up coming tennis tournament Not only Hiromi, but also her teammates become confused and take the odd situation unfair. Jealousy of her friends and teammates mounted, and they started to talk behind her back. Finally, Hiromi decides to leave the team and run away from the uncomfortable reality, but the coach strongly refused. Instead, he gave her an even more severe and personalized training. --TV Asahi

Pit Señor San Agustine!

Habit, if not resisted, soon becomes necessity.~ St. Augustine quotes

Viva Señor San Agustine!

Yes today let me pay tribute to the fiest of Saint Agustine. This link will lead you to knowing what his life was in the catholic enclylopedia.

Here in Cagayan de Oro, we celebrate this fiest every August 28. Every year people look forward to it. Specially in the church, where there are several activities related to the celebration.

The City government of Cagayan de Oro, recently passed a city ordinance, declaring August 28 as a special non-working holiday for the city. That is why in our office we are not required to work. Am lucky, I should say, I don't have to work on this day or if I would, I'll be paid more than twice as an over time.

There's a street dancing competion held last August26. And several dance troupes participated in the parade of street dances. I think Barangay Carmen of this city won the major price of this year's dance festival. And August 27 is a parade of floats. Several creatively made floats were on the streets.

Concerts in different malls were also held. Some shows also were held, some were for free and some were costly. Some events highlighted specific product brands and some showcase several mindanao products.

Of course, the highlight of this year's celebration, was the search for Miss Kagay-an 2008. The search showcase 15 beauties proudly from this city.

I guess for me, the most important thing, is to attend the mass. As early as 7AM tomorrow, I aim to hear the mass with KSD family. I do hope everyone enjoys the city fiesta. I also hope I eat a lot without having a problem digesting hehehe. God bless us always!

CISCO IP Addressing Training Videos

I found these videos very interesting, specially those who are starting to take CCNA lessons with the Cisco Academes. I am still finishing my masters in IT, and one of the subject we had was to take up Cisco 1&2, with of course the Cisco Academe. That is why, these videos appear so interesting for me.

Dear Friend...


Dear friend, if bad companions tempt you, don't go along with them. Proverbs 1:10

Am so glad to find several instructions in the bible. I remember what happened to my cousin who once had bad influence friends. Am glad he did not go along with them before he lost his future. Eventually my cousin manage to seek answers from his bible and leave those tempting bad companions.

Yes all about friends. Sometimes, they can cause us to sin. Sometimes they tempt us on something. I am glad my friends just tempt me to eat a lot and not to sin. Hehehe! Yes I know what you mean, gluttony can be a sin too.

I would say, most of my friends are faithful. Yes I meet most of them in the community. Some of them are close to me during my school days. But I am sure they know me, and I do know them more deeply than plain acquaintance. I guess I have known my friends personally.

I think this is what I want to thank God for. He gave me amazing friends. Friends who are there at my best and worst times. Friends whom I can rely on at any given time. Yes I do love my friends, specially the One who sent them.

Jogging

I jogged 5 years ago, until such time, I missed jogging.

To prepare my self to wear a dress, of my best friend's (wala koy choice sya ra akong female college classmate sa BSECE) wedding, I enrolled to a gym for a work out. I asked my gym instructor that I want to gain some weights but wanted to loose some bulks in my tummy. Hehehe!

So part of my work out is jogging too. I am accompanied by my sister to jog early morning. I also accompany my younger sister, who was pregnant at that time, to walk some miles around our place.

While when I go to the gym, I use treadmill for about 15minutes. In the treadmill I do plain walking right after my stretching session before my work out starts.

My gym session did not last for more than a year. Since the wedding of my best friend made me somewhat busy and I sink into the dress I wore during her wedding day. I think am too shy dealing with everyone in the gym, since most of the gym-goers were males. And am having a hard time catching the ladies in the gym, it seems that most of the time am alone. Hmmm, my officemates too were not that religious in attending their gym sessions. Also can't afford something for the gym when I started to fall in love, playing Badminton.

So I stopped going to the gym. And I missed working out. But am happy the Grace invited me to jog last night. I think one of the reason why am still awake now. Hehehe. We jogged from 6:15pm to 7:15pm.

After an hour jogging, we sat on a bench and shared some stories. We laughed and discussed things. Things we did missed talking about, when we were away from each other, she is my classmate/batchmate in college before. She used to work in Taiwan for more than 5 years and is now back home. So we called it a day after several minutes when our stomachs told us we're hungry.

SOS-CKA Day! (Sword of the Spirit-Christ the King)

Yes we just celebrated our SOS-CKA Day at the Kahayag sa Diyos (KSD) Community. We had a conference from 9AM-4PM yesterday. This year's theme: "In Such a Time Like This. " The best part for me was when I joined the music ministry that day.

About the conference, it was more of a reminder for us all. The speakers remind us about our role in the community. I was hit by one speaker, and brought me in tears. I realize how important my role is in the community. I also realize how God's strategy hit me so hard.

Yes, one speaker talked about God's strategy. And I was crying hearing all of it. Because I felt His presence in my life. I know God have been working in my life. And I was able to recall the things He has done for me, special during my not so good times.

After the conference, I went to hear the mass. The priest was talking to the parents, he mentioned that for us human beings, there is always a favoritism. And the good thing about our God is always just. He never play favoritism among us His sons and daughters. No matter if we sin or not, God's love is always the same.

I thank God for loving me, and for always telling me He is always with me. I hope and pray you too can experience His love and to have a personal relationship with Him. This coming Aug.29,2008 at 6:30PM, we from KSD are inviting you all to attend a dinner with us at Patrick Cronin Formation Center at Catherdral Church. RSVP. God bless and thanks for coming.

Realize

I neglected hearing this song. This became very popular during the PBB Teen Edition of ABS-CBN this year. My niece, who is 4 years old, would sing this in a familiar tune but unknown lyrics.

Until I went to TCC to be part of the academe. It was so fulfilling to have a dream come true of being a full time instructor. I guess one of the best part is being able to impart the knowledge I have. And being able to help the students in their field of study.

I also love the part where my student relay on me, when I know am guiding them and leading them to the way out to be the next professional. I feel like living for my students, they give me reason to wake up each day.

I guess for most instructors, it is an achievement to see their students graduate. I learned alot in the period of more than a month stay at the academe. I realize how important our teachers and instructors role on earth. I realize how to live for others. I realize that I love this song, I am sharing its video with lyrics.



I thank GOD I realized... I do hope you also realize...

5 Pageant Questions

So I am stuck answering the pageant questions given for Miss TCC. There were five questions given, so I figured out how to answer them. I am not good in thinking when I do not have enough sleep, so I went to sleep first. It means I am doing this in the middle of the snores of my father, hehehe. He is snoring in his sleep while I am typing this whole thing.

Why answer the questions, because I am tasked to help one of the candidate. Part of a commitment, hehehe. No monetary arragement, hehehe. I just want to serve them in my spare time. Of course, I think of being the contestant, not just a help, hehehe, in my dreams.

So I do hope you can relate wtih my answers. I am actually tempeted to answer number 4 with "my boyfiriend", when I know i have none at the moment hehehe. If you have violent reactions, you can kiss me, lol.

Thanks for always visiting my blog. God bless!

Here's the five questions with my answers:

1. Do you believe that there is a dull student?

I do believe that genetics have something to do with the difference of every individual so as to knowledge development. That is the reason why there are some students who are fast learners and some who are slow learners. I think dull students belong to slow learners, and they do exist. But once slow learner students gain the proper knowledge in the length of time I believe they shine and do not stay dull. I, thank you!

2. What do you think is the main use of education in life?

Education is so important. It starts from our homes and to our schools. Education can help us realize what kind of person we want to be. An educated person can easily become responsible and deal with the society. The best thing about proper education, is that, graduates are most likely able to acquire the best jobs they aspire to have. That’s all, thank you!

3. How do you see your self five years from now?

I see my self in five years time as a successful career woman with the goal of helping those who are in need, and be of service to my beloved country while proudly bringing the name of my alma matter. As a bonus if tonight I will be crowned Miss TCC, I would see my self joining the Miss Philippines Beauty Pageant five years from now, while working in a prestigious company in the big cities such as Manila or Cebu. Good evening once again, thank you!

4. Who inspire you?

I am inspired by my faith, I live each day thanking God for the gift of life. I am also inspired by my parents and my family, who are always ready to support me in every good thing I desire and gives me the love I need everyday. Each friend I have, specially the rest of the candidates, who were willing to understand me and to share time with me when am not with my family also inspired me. I guess there are too many inspirations to be mentioning here, but this pageant have inspired me most specially because, I am able to share my talents that I used to keep within myself. Thank you so much, good evening!

5. What is your view on premarital sex?

My view about Premarital Sex is this: Morality is a factor for many people when deciding whether or not to have premarital sex. Most Christian does not practice premarital sex since it is a vow of purity as to Christ. I believe in doing what is right and faith without action is dead. I choose virginity because I am one of the Christian believers in this country, I wanted to be pure and morally upright. It is a choice I made for my faith in God and not just for any other reasons. A pleasant good evening to all of you!

Coaching for a Quiz Bowl

So I will be coaching college student for a quiz bowl competition. This is part of my commitment for Tagoloan Community College. Particularly with Engr. Danilo Pasco, the dean of College of Engineering Technology.
There will be one team (with 4 members from 1st-4th year) each category. There are four categories, namely: English, Science, History (General Information) and Math.
This blog is entended to link possible site where my students can prepare for the quiz. We will be reviewing for the next few days. I do hope I can share something for them, and they win.
I remember being coached as a Math Olympiad way back my high school days. We were coached by several math teachers then. We do it every saturday and solve math problems. We did not only solve problems, but also, we learned so many technics on how to solve problem with lesser time.
My fullfilment as a Math Olympiad was when our team won in several competitons, within the city and nationwide. As a math olympiad, I gained confidence at any math problems I encounter. In life too, I think math gave me so much courage to face each trials and solve them in an olympiad way. Of course, I prayed too, God gives me the strength I need as always.

Photoshop for a Logo

Yes I want to share something here. All about photoshop. It is one of the software applications used for most of the graphic artist.


Today, I was asked to make a logo to be used in an intramurals. But of course, am not one of the graphic artist, who can easily do it. So I asked someone else's help.

It was Eman who helped me do this logo, I am about to share to all of you. I was tasked to submit it early tomorrow. Honestly, I missed our teachings in KSD just to finish this one. I felt guilty, but very thankful God gave me His angels along the way in finishing the logo.
Angels' Heaven Sent
The student assitant of MPSC, who helped me come up with the logo, Eman. Ann who also helped one way or the other. Pol who provided us the dinner, which made me impossible to miss a meal. And CEPALCO and Philcom for the commercial power and internet.

For photoshop designs, you can contact me for tutorials and artist works. Hope you all give your comment about the logo I am sharing here. God bless!

Thanks for the Condolences.

Yesterday at 3pm my Lola died at age 82.

I have accepted her death. I know she is in peace now and is resting with our Lord. I have a previous blog about my Lola. I have honored her so much.

I will be processing her papers today for her burial related claims. I know this will be the last thing I can give her a favor. She is more than loved. I am just sad her memory failed before long before her death.

But even though her memories died, I know that in her loved ones, us, her family will have the loving memory about her always.

Thanks for the condolences. God bless!

Basic Hydraulic

A link showing the preview of a book on Hydraulics!

http://books.google.com.ph/books?id=VCNmKQI6GiEC&printsec=frontcover&hl=en&source=gbs_summary_r&cad=0

Just read and learn:

Hydrodynamics versus Hydrostatics

Two ways of trasmitting fluid energy
1. Hydrodynamic: the kinetic or the impact of the moving fluid is converted to
mechanical energy.
2. Hydrostatic: energy is transferred through a confined fluid by the pressure that is
created by the application of a force to that confined fluid.


Pascal’s Law
Pressure exerted on a confined liquid at rest is transmitted equally in all directions, is the
same at any point in the liquid, and acts at right angles to the surfaces of the container
1. Pascal’s law is valid irrespective of the shape of the vessel
2. Any change in the exerted pressure is seen almost instantly throughout the liquid.
3. Fluid in a system can be as rigid as steel for the transmission of power.



Advantages of Hydraulic Power Systems
1. Provide high levels of readily regulated torque and force
2. Offer infinitely variable linear or rotary speed over a wide range
3. Instantly reversible
4. Can be stalled without damage
5. High power output is possible
6. High accuracy and extreme stiffness
7. Possible to be automated without electronics
8. Fully adaptable to electrical or electronic controls
9. Provide cushioning to reduce the effects of impact or shoch loads
10. The fluid itself provides lubrication



Disadvantages of Hydraulic Power Systems
1. Hazards exist due to high-pressure
2. Fluids are flammable
3. Leakage is possible
4. Adequate filtration is necessary
Hydraulics are ideal for applications requiring high forces for heavy loads, long stroke
linear motion, rigidity and accuracy with heavy loads, high-stall torque, etc.



Press–Force–Area Relationship
Pressure is defined as
Pressure = Force/Area
or
p = F/A
Several conversion factors for pressure
• 1 psi = 6895 Pa = 6.895 kPa
• 1 bar = 14.5 psi = 100 kPa

OJT's Narrative Report



OJT's Narrative Report

It was on April 16,2008 when Phillip Caingles and I started our On-The-Job training at PhilCom. On that day, we were assigned in Network Management Center (NMC) Department. The supervisor and engineers welcomed us nicely. They oriented and taught us about the job that we were about to do on that day. After the orientation, Engr. Earl Clemen brought us to the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) where we met our co-ojt’s in NMC, Mark Gregor Buot and Beverlyn Ranis, doing Pot Splitter Jumpering. They taught us on how to do it and so we tried to do the jumpering. It’s not that hard as long as you know about the horizontal and vertical connections in the MDF. Pot Splitter Jumpering is done whenever there is a new PhilCom subscriber. We do also Pot Splitter Removal to minimize the unnecessary connections that are not anymore active. We also do call thru for telephone line activation.
On the following days, we used to go outside whenever there are subscriber’s line problem or trouble tickets that will be sent to our department. We did the troubleshooting together with the engineer usually at the Remote Line Units (RLU) or at Extended Line Units (ELU) depending on the location of the line problem. We did our troubleshooting in different approach. We will ask first for the subscriber’s telephone number, if it is the correct number that we will troubleshoot then that’s the time we will do the proper troubleshooting of the line. Usually, we received complains about lost of the dial tone at subscriber’s end.
On our last day, we did the troubleshooting by our own. Fortunately, we were able to fix the problem. We were so satisfied in our task done.
We were so happy, grateful and fortunate that we were able to experience and learn a lot of things that are related in the field of communications. It’s the best On-The-Job training here at PhilCom especially in NMC with the guidance of our supervisor Engr. Antonio Bontilao and supportive engineers- Engr.Earl, Engr.Jorge, Engr.Oliver, Engr. Abe, Engr. Theresa and Engr. Judith.

What Do I Want To Do With My Life? - - - - - - - - - - - Who Does God Want Me To Be?

I find this very inspiring video. On a Sunday, I guess it hit me most specially that I am at work the whole day and fail to attend mass. I worked from 6AM until 10PM. Maybe the guilt get into my nerves and somehow struck me with this video...

When it first asked: What do I want to do with my life? I simply don't know much about mine. Then again asked, Who does God want me to be? I begun to get interested.

This video will serve as my reminder, hope you are all reminded too. God bless and thanks for reading my blogs always!


Happy Father's Day Specially...

...To the men of my life, my dad and my brother.

I'd like to honor my brother on this Father's Day, for being a loving husband and a great dad. He is an achievement for my parents for being a great provider to his family. I always believe that he is our pride in the family as a brother and a son to my parents. I am proud to be his sister too!

Most specially I'd love to honor my father. We call him Papa. He is a loving husband too and a great father. No wonder my brother grow up just like him, a great dad of all time. I think my dad is doing the best thing he can for his children. That is in loving our mother.

To all dads out there, happy father's day. I do believe that, our Almighy Father is proud of all of you who have been responsible in loving the world. Because I believe that man give love, and makes the world a better place to live in. This world needs a man who knows how to love and who know God. Love is of God. Amen!!!

For this is a very special day to all dads, let me share my Kenny G collection from youtube:

I hope you all love my present to you all. Happy Father's Day once again!!!

Company Summer Outing 2008

This year's Philcom Summer Outing was, for the second time, held at Duka Bay. It is located at Medina, Misamis Oriental, a three hours drive away from Cagayan de Oro City.

So I will be posting some of my pictures taken there, while we had some parlor games. I am also posting the view inside the beach resort. Pictures were taken last April18-19. Some of us actually went there for an overnight videoke and some swimming, I was with the team who manage to arrive at 8pm of April18. Then some came early the next morning.

If you notice some eye bags, its normal for me, its all because we just have less than an hour sleep due to our singing career that night.



The Duka Bay Resort:

The last we were here was in May of 2002, the same company summer outing. So many chances now with the beach and the place. They added several amenities and cool cottages. I think it is a lot better now.


Me fresh from swimming with Ann:




Climbed the tree for a pose!




Trying to be someone else.





Go Team Polu !!!


I belonged to team Polu, we won second in the over-all competion. Actually we only lost one game out of 5 but due to the point system, we missed becoming the champion. Our group simplified each game, which made us finish each task at a very short time. In every game, intellectual intervention is necessary, which was present in our team.

I rate my team mates an A, they are very cooperative and eager to win. But most of all, we did everything to enjoy the presence of each one in the group. This makes every team excel.



Getting ready for a thread relay (LIFO-we won)!

We were the last team to be able to pass the thread to the next person, all because of me. The blouse I have got longer sleeves. But I did something to make it move faster. It made our time win. Hehehe!


Cheering practise - hiphip, hurray!




Preparing the props.




Anything goes...

Hazel, Me, Connie and Hirah

Roland Garros Finals - 2008 French Open


No surprise, that the Spaniard 22 years old, Rafael Nadal, second man to win French Open titles for the fouth time, dominated the men's final game against Roger Federer. A game well played and well ended at 6-1, 6-3, 6-0.

While Pete Sampras was well known to me not winning the same title, I guest most of the spectators, was frustrated too knowing Roger Federer did not take home the grand slam title. I guess life is so fair. We get what we deserve, and in this year's French Open, I think Nadal was more deserving.

Nadal did his best to stand out, and made the crowd frustrated seeing the endgame at 6-0. Knowing Federer did a lot of errors in his forehand, it was a sign, for him not to be able to beat the man in clay.

To our surprise, in the women's final, 22 year old Dinara Safina made it to the finals after winning against Maria Sharapova. But Ana Ivanovic at her 20's manage to put her self to WTA's No.1 rank when she eagerly won 6-4, 6-3 against Dinara.

Ana's first slam title made the Serbs proud. Also proved that it is about time for the Serb to dominate the women's division in this year's French Open.

Not so long ago I have known tennis, I played with a Japanese friend, a friend of my officemate. Although watching the French Open was fun, being in the court simply takes more than hard work to have fun. I salute to the hard work of all the finalist of Roland Garros - French Open 2008.

Let me share my frustrations to all Federer (still ranked ATP's No.1) fans, and thanks to my friends who watched and monitored the game with me.

Can I Go To Heaven?

I hope yes is my answer to this question.

Today, for the first time, I attended our community district assembly. Most of the time, I do have excuses not to attend. Busy hours, career and family matters are included in those excuses. But I made no excuse today.

After knowing that month of May is a recess, for our district assembly meeting, I missed our community. In April, I experienced heaven with the community members. I realized how much I missed not attending any of our district assembly meeting.

Our community caters both single and married members. As a single KSD member, I declined to be part of the district community. I think I was so afraid to join with the married and older brothers and sisters. I limit my self in serving God. But my eyes were opened everytime married couples adopt singles in each meeting we have. It means that they provide food for us, singles, so we need not prepare anything. I felt like their child, so spoiled to have what I want, married couples pampered us singles in the community.

In todays bible reflection, the scripture mentioned about "Doing the will of God, leading to heaven". It enlightens me about how important to do His will. How important it is to be with the community for God's love.

Loving God in return because He loved me so much is what I believe to be my passport to heaven. And I think it is best expressed in the community and most specially in our office and at home. Servanthood is one thing on my mind to return the love of God for me.

I know that not all of us have the gift of service, but at the moment I keep on praying for God's help for me to be of service to others. In any way, serving others, is the will of God. To serve others to honor and praise my creature. I do believe a blog such this can serve as my inspiration to myself and others, to always remind me how to be in HEAVEN.

A Happy Mother's Day!

I will always be proud and thankful for having the best mom in this world. I know I envy those who have not seen their moms or those who don't know who their moms are.

God loved me so much to give me a mother I am loving so dearly because I think she's the best. She cares for her children a lot. She is loving and caring and very understanding. She gives us the will to decide, she believe we have the gift of wisdom.

She suffered from stroke, still recovering now, her right body is not moving. In her situation, she still keeps the faith. She makes us feel we are loved no matter how hard it is for her to move. She is fighting to gain back her life, which makes us living.

My mother is my life. I owe her a lot. In the worst case, of her stroke, I still see the bright side. Her situation makes us her children care for her more. It gives me the chance to take care of her. To make the things she's done for me when I was still young and up to this day.

Being with my mother on a Mother's Day is for me a happy mother's day!

May 1 - Reunion Day!

I started my day at 6am, heading towards the house of my brother. His house is more than 10kms away from our house. No one stays in his house when he's not in our city.

My brother and his family is now staying in Manila. They come home every vacation like the months of April to May as well as December.

My parents with my sisters and me, went to his house for their arrival. We clean the house and the surroundings. We also cook food for them.

We are always excited for their home coming. Every year, I look forward to meeting them in the airport or in the port area.

So May 1 in my calendar is marked for another reunion with my brother and his family. We meet them at the airport at 4pm.

Another reunion set on the same day is together with my college classmates and batchmates. Our first reunion after college, college was 9 years ago.

During our college days our school offered 3 courses for engineering: BSEE, BSECE, and BSCompE. I remember that on the first year, there were two sections. Designated sections were: I-A and I-B. Where each sections have 45 students per class. Only 90 students in first year.

Luckily, during the reunion, each courses were represented. However, only from I-B were present. One is an EE, three are CompE, four are ECE, and one who did not make it to finished a course but married on from the group.

We enjoyed seeing each other, and talking with each other. Some were married, and some like me were still single. Worked within the city, while others worked overseas. We missed those who were not present.

As we eat and drink, we also sing along the videoke midi player. We were at Galam Recreation Hall, in a private room number 7. The videoke private room costs P150 per hour and up, depends on how big the room.

Our last song at 11:30pm called it a day.

Blessings in Disguise

This entry is a sequel to my previous article:

The Setting:

In preparation for the Holy week, the Kayahag sa Diyos Community (KSD), held a retreat facilitated by a priest. The venue was in Saint Mary's Academy in Capistrano Complex at Gusa. Married couples and singles were all together gathered in the said event.

During lunch, as usual, the singles were adopted by the married couples. As everyone happily partake the food holy week activities were discussed. One is about the Sedar Meal, where each single members were to decide which married couple group they would join. The groupings was based on the area or location where each members stay.

Further discussions included the Easter Sunday Party. A service team was tasked to prepare the event. I was a member of the said service team.

Inevitably, holy week getaway were secretly whispered. Specially from the singles. Some were bound to join their company to spend it at Camiguin Island. Some wanted to pray the "Stations of the Cross " at Malasag or at Balubal.

Eating was so fun and mouthful, made our stomachs as full as it can.

The Final Plan:

Since some planned to have holy week getaways, we were able to come up with a plan. To go and make a wish at "Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine" at Balubal with some singles on the following Sunday. Those who will commit will have to be at the meeting place at 5am sharp.

The plan also include bring of our own baons, our own packed meals good for breakfast and lunch. To leave those who can't make it before 5:30am. And to call each other to encourage everyone to be as early as possible

My Dilemmas:

I have my graveyard shift at the date set for our trip.

If I swap my schedule with someone, it will be hard since graveyards shift is not a flexible schedule. If we do swapping it can also mean working straight for 16hours. If I don't swap my schedule it means I will have undertime, a one-hour salary deduction. It can mean a memo from HR too or something.

My graveyards shift means my work ends at 6am. It means I can't cook for my food for both breakfast and lunch. It means I can't make it to be there before 5:30am. Worst it can mean me being left behind by the group.

The Blessings:

When I called Cheryl a day before our trip, I asked her if she can bring extra food for me. During the trip her mother prepared for more than 5 persons. The food was more than enough.

I was able to call all you confirmed to join the said trip. As early as 4:30am, I woke most of them.

In Disguise:

Fe had stomach ache a night before our trip. When I called her up she went back to sleep. At 5:30am she informed me she did not have enough sleep because of what happened. She asked me to tell the group to wait for her and me.

My Joy:

The grouped understand Fe's situation, so they waited for us. I was glad I did not have to swap or make undertime. Or make the group wait for me or make them left me. It was someone who made my way to the shrine. Its God's ways.

Indeed blessings in disguise flooded that day. The time stopped, and because we left our meeting place not at 5:30am but as late as 6:30am, we were able to have the extra ordinary trip in a jeepney. PUJs usually don't go as near as the river bank. But since some college students were heading on the same way as ours on boarded on the jeep, the driver agreed to bring us nearest the river bank.

The Finale:

After the prayer at the chapel of the shrine, we eat our baons. Since a niece of Ching celebrated a birthday a day before, we were able to have pasta and some adobo. And we were also invited to have lunch at their house.

I got home at 3pm with so full tummy. Enjoying the abundance of life God gave and believing my wishes were all granted!

Our Way to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe

That night I worked 10pm-6am shift, in between one of my graveyards shift last March 15. The rain poured so hard. I just can't help thinking on how can we get through the crossing of the river. They say its hard to have river trekking with a heavy rain a day before an event.

It was Sunday, March 16, 2008 at 6am, we decided to visit the "Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine". This shrine is located in Balubal within Cagayan de Oro City. Our meeting place was at Dunkin Donuts Divisoria. Then we ride a Bugo liner jeepney towards Tablon Elementary School.

We were fortunate, some college students were also on board on the same jeepney with the same destination, the driver decided to take us very near the river bank. We did not hike more and spend more for another ride with a tricycle. A tricycle actually charges P5 per person.

Taking off the jeepney, we meet some kids. Some of the kids sell candles. The price depends on the size of the candle. It ranges from P1-and up. Some kids sell woods. Why woods? Woods can act as canes for walking down the steams of the river. They sell it for P3. Some sell it 3 for P10.

Some did not grab a wood cane, but we were all set to do the first crossing of the river. Geared with a wood cane, I was confident to make it. Some kids meet us in that first river, they offered to help us cross the river. I did not mind them, I tried to cross the river. I was holding a friend, Fe. She's struggling just like me, I did not expected how difficult it is to cross for the first time.

So in the middle of the river, we needed to give in, we hired the kids to help us cross. As they guide, it will cost us. I did donate some amount of money for them. Some donated more than what I gave. And I survived the first river crossed.

After crossing the first river, we reached the first station. Then we all gathered and begun a prayer, "The Stations of the Cross".
