It’s 1am


Its 1am and I’m still awake. What am I thinking? The songs…are they for me?

Well, I’ve read the lyrics and not all fits me. Maybe it was just a coincidence. Or maybe it’s there simply to attract my attention. Is my mind readable? It may be posted because they know I’ll visit.

Whatever the reason is, I’m not in anymore for the game. I have posted this before, and I know that ‘stupidity kills’…

Many people ask me why I am still single. In todays generation, most people settle down at the age of 20. If they do not get married, many are living in with their partners. I’m 28 and single. People don’t see anyone I’m dating. They see me as a serious type of girl and a responsible child. They see me professionally and most of them think my life is not happy. What would I expect them to think anyway?

I live my life in a routine. I wake up early to go to work from Monday to Saturday. I went home in the evenings, talk to my mother, watch movie, eat my dinner, read my favorite book, surf online to greet my friends or watch the news and then sleep.
During Sundays, I am still obligated to wake up early to go to church. In the afternoon after church, I do my favorite habit, sewing. I have lot of plans, lots of designs at mind but get bored easily. When I get bored, I usually went to the mall and window shop. I will go home when its dark and when I arrive, I’ll have a little chat with my mom before I go to sleep. I again sleep early to prepare and get energy for work on the following day which is Monday.

Isn’t my life boring? We’ll sometimes I admit it is. But I’ll let you know what makes me happy. During Monday to Saturday where I am working hard, I am happy because I learn a lot and develop my professional life. At work, I am inspired because I come to know and mingle to different people and individuals. I talk to different races from different countries. I learn how to manage my time and how to manage my finances. I earn a living for me and for my family. I help people to learn and realize how to value their work.

I also learn to value and respect my friends. I learn how to handle disputes and how to express my feelings to a very close friend who happen to commit mistake at work without affecting our friendship. I learn how to coach problematic individuals and taught them in a nice way. I learn how to respect my superiors and hand in hand we work together for the success of the company.

On Thursday, I have to make a little adjustment on my schedule. I have to finish my work early to be able to attend our church gathering at 6 in the evening. At church, I talked to God and ask His guidance and blessings. I ask forgiveness of my sins and ask Him to always protect me and my love ones. I praise Him and totally submit myself unto Him.

On Friday and Saturday I have to be in dress down. I love wearing my jeans and work as carefree as I can.

That is my usual routine for a week. I may lived my life simply and without excitement but that is how I enjoy it. I enjoy everything I’m doing and every minute and second is a precious time that only my heart knows why.

You may see my life black and white but my heart feels and sees all the colors God has painted in this world.

…till my next post 🙂

Happy Birthday dear Sistah

The Ultimate Friendship Book

(by Shaynee Snider, 2001, Scholastic Inc. ISBN 0-4 39-24391-2)

T’was year 2008 when Michelle, my friend, gave me this book. This book is very special to me because there are lots of things about friendship written here. I am going to share you some very beautiful things I’ve read in this book.

YOUR FRIENDS AND YOU

“There’s nothing like having close friends. They share your secrets, cheer you up when you’re bummed, and turn bad days into good ones just by being ther. Friends are like ice cream, summer vacation, and holiday presents rolled into one!”

Indeed, there’s nothing like having my bestfriends, Michelle and Leslie. Through the years, they are there for me, they cheer me up when I feel that the world turns upside down. My summer vacations are best when they are around. And most specially, holiday presents are very special from them.

10 Ways to Make New Friends

  • Talk to people. Talk to your newly found friend.
  • Go out for an after-school sport or join a club. Spend time with people there and meet new friends.
  • Try something totally new. Try going somewhere else.
  • Look beyond your school. Try joining a club, church and other else.
  • Look for pals who have all the right qualities. Look for those who does good things only.
  • Invite someone over. Invite people to your home.
  • Don’t rush things. Friendship really takes time to build.
  • Be self-confident. Don’t get jealous to anyone’s ideas or self-attainment.
  • Be positive. Don’t talk negative things to your newly found friend.
  • Try an occasional compliment. Saying good things about a person makes them happy and put some trust in you.

Building Bonds

  • Talk it out. Let them know what you feel.
  • Spend time together. Bonding really is the best time for friendship.
  • Say good-bye to jealousy. Be at your own self and love your friends talents. Don’t get jealous with them.
  • Make her feel special. Know the special days of your friends and create ideas on how you make it more special to her.
  • Give her time in the spotlight. Let her shine as you are.

Friendship No-No’s

  • Don’t talk behind your friends back.
  • Don’t stand her up.
  • Don’t be two-faced.
  • Don’t belittle her.
  • Don’t try to run or maneuver her life.
  • Don’t get too clingy.
  • Don’t use her as a “backup”.
  • Don’t use her because you can get benefits from her.

Happy Birthday Michelle!!!


 

God gave a gift to the world when you were born’
a person who loves, who cares,
who sees a person’s need and fills it,
who encourages and lifts people up,
who spends energy on others
rather than herself,
someone who touches each life she enters,
and makes a difference in the world,
because ripples of kindness flow outward
as each person you have touched, touches others.
Your birthday deserves to be a national holiday,
because you are a special treasure
for all that you’ve done.
May the love you have shown to others
return to you, multiplied.
I wish you the happiest of birthdays,
and many, many more,
so that others have time to appreciate you
as much as I do.

Here’s your birthday cake…..

Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) Happy 97th Anniversary


My Bestfriends



It was about 7 in the morning when the company service reach Ticala, Valencia, Negros Oriental. T’was the first time I’ve come that place. After attending the flag ceremony, the company vehicle transports us again to Puhagan, another barangay of Valencia situated on the upper part of the mountains. This is my first day of work at Philippine National Oil Company – Energy Development Corporation (PNOC-EDC). I was assigned at PAL-I Maintenance Department which is located in Puhagan. When I entered the office, I was greeted by many people whom I noticed are all men. I felt quite nervous as I don’t see someone of my age. All the people in the office were looking at me. They are very hospitable and friendly but despite their smiles, I did not felt relaxed then. I am so nervous. This is my first day and I didn’t expect to find an office full of men.

I just sat down on a table and waited for instructions, when I heard noises at the back of the office. Later, I heard a voice of a girl laughing with the boys. And there, a “kikay” girl showed at the door and smiled sweetly to me. We were introduced to each other as office mates.  I was so happy and I felt relaxed already. That was the first time I met Michelle (Michelle Abante Tepoc). That was January 24, 2005.

Michelle is a very nice person. Back then, she helps me overcome my fear with the place (it is in the mountains) and she always invited me to their house. Instantly, Michelle and I became good friends.

Many things happen. Michelle pursued her studies and I was left alone (the only girl in the office). After almost a year, I also moved to another company. But Michelle and I were remains not just good friends but the best of friends. We hang out together and talk non-sense things. Our common attitude is that we always notice “cute boys” and laugh and talk like we know them. It’s our past time. Greenwich (Dumaguete) is our favorite place to hang out. Michelle always treat me “lasagna” and “pizza” there. And I missed it already…

Michelle is already at the Wisconsin, but distance is not a hindrance of being best friends. We chat, email and call each other if time permits. Time flies, and so the years. But this we promised, we will always be there for each other and remain bestfriends till the end.

Miss you friend Mitch!!!

It was a constant hang-out between me and Michelle. We are on our way to Greenwich when she told me that she wants to invite another friend of her, which she just also met weeks ago. We both went to the parlor to fetch her friend. Arriving at the parlor, I saw a familiar looking girl. She smiled and joked to Michelle. Michelle had also introduced us. She’s Leslie (Leslie Anne Lado Bacla), a new friend of Michelle which happened to be a schoolmate of mine during my high school days. On that very simple acquaintance, I never thought Leslie and I would become best of friends too. Leslie is very cool. She is funny and we think the same. We both accompanied Michelle when she was still working on her papers for abroad. And Leslie became one of us. She is already part of the friendship me and Mitch have.

She’s a very supportive friend and a happy type of a person too. We both went to Michelle’s house at Valencia to visit Michelle. That time, Michelle was already scheduled to fly weeks after. The experience we have, the fun and the adventure are very unforgettable. It binds the three of us to become bestfriends for life.

Couple of months after Michelle has departed, Leslie also went abroad. I was left here in the Philippines but I didn’t feel sad at all. I know they’re both in good hands and we still are bestfriends. We reach each other through call, emails and chat.

Thanks for being there for us friend Leslie. I miss you too.

This song is for the both of you:

Many people say true friends are hard to find
but I know i’m not that kind
they come and go and sometimes leave us behind
like a wind that passes by

[chorus]
`Cause when you need a friend
that you can depend
you can count on me because
you’re my best friend
when you’re feeling down
and your heart is hurt
you can call on me
and I will be there for you friend

Good things may come
and that bad things may go
like that love long time ago
you’re like a ship that’s sailing across the sea
through the waves that’s so unkind

[chorus]
`Cause when you need a friend
that you can depend
you can count on me because
you’re my best friend
when you’re feeling down
and your heart is hurt
you can call on me
and I will be there for you friend

[chorus]
`cause when you need a friend
that you can depend
you can count on me because
you’re my best friend
when you’re feeling down
and your heart is hurt
you can call on me
and I will be there for you

When you need a friend
that you can depend
you can count on me because
you’re my best friend
when you’re feeling down
and your heart is hurt
you can call on me
and I will be there for you friend
