I had lots of things to do for today as the last day of the year 2009. I went to downtown for some important things so I had to be early to avoid the new year rush in the afternoon. I already finished my grocery lists for a get-together at home tonight. Many people on the mall are lining up for the preparation of the coming new year which is just hours from now. I still managed to update my posts here even without opps. They are also in holiday vacation I guess. I still have to go to the main market later for some fresh purchases and prepare at home for the celebration with family. Quite tiring but it is always the essence of the new year that matters.
I haven't meet My for the past week due to hectic schedule at work and during the holiday season. I timed out early from the office today and visited her at the clinic. We chatted a lot and keep an update about each other's activities last Christmas. She treated me for a delicious buffet dinner at Kuya Ed's. Foods served were freshly cooked and we enjoyed the different kinds of meals prepared for us. It was a great evening. Thanks My for your treat.
It my sister Anne's birthday today. Wishing you all the best as you celebrate this another year of your birthday. Prayerful wishes topped with all the love from all of us. Hope your birthday is special & filled with all the happiness all the way.
It was the last day of office yesterday and as a culminating activity before the holidays, we had our Christmas party. Everybody enjoyed the program, parlor games, door prizes, foods and the exchange gifts. I am happy to received these gifts -- carry on and lady's bag and an electric water heater. These things are very useful for my personal and kitchen needs. But my sis likes the lady's bag and my bro likes the carry bag. I just give it to them anyway. What's left with me is the water heater for everybody's use at home. Thanks for these gifts!
We celebrated last Sunday the Golden Wedding anniversary of Uncle Gene and Auntie Ching and this was the grand celebration of the Loria Family where relatives from Pampanga,Laguna and Iloilo joined together for this once in a lifetime event. I never thought that my aunt & uncle could still be together celebrating their 50 years of marriage. That is why their children really spent time and money to organized this event. The theme is about thanksgiving... honoring the Lord for all His great blessings to the family. The couple renewed their vows and their children & families offered gifts of symbols. A slide show presentation was made looking back those years of life of my aunt and uncle. I was emotional during the presentation as well as the relatives because I felt their struggles for survival. The hard life experiences that the family had to go through was so touchy. One thing that I knew and really admired was the religiosity and faith of my grandmother because she prayed for all of us her grandchildren. Nang Inday delivered an exaltation and she said we should not be ashamed of where we came from as a surviving families. But instead be proud because it made us what we are now. All in all the celebration was great and truly memorable. Cheers to 50 years!
I was off from posting here for the past 4 days and just arrived from a short vacation in Manila. I attended a grand family affair(Golden Anniversary) of my aunt and uncle. Though it was a short time of get together but I really enjoyed the moments with my relatives there. I already reported at the office and still feeling the hang-over of the vacation until this time.
I can't imagine the days of this week. My time was so preoccupied in the office (reports,deadlines, backlogs, verifications, updates etc.) and in my accounting studies (assignments,quizzes,portfolio). I just finished my 2nd examination and this week is the last week of classes before the Christmas vacation. My stress is from head to toe and sometimes I feel physically that I lost my sense of balance. Now I am taking things one at a time. Finishing the school task today somehow is a 50% relief for me. When I arrive home all that I want to do is to relax and take a good sleep after the daily stress. It is difficult but all it takes are perseverance and time management. I might be back to my normal state of life hopefully by next week.
I am having trouble in accessing my blogspot account since last week. There seemed to be a problem in blogger website. The site prevented me from viewing my blog and whenever I accessed it a blank screen would appear. Some of the gadgets would also take some time to appear on the blog. I made a post last week and this might be the reason why my followers cannot post comments. I tried to contact the help desk of Google but cannot get into it. Now I am using a different computer to see if the PC matters but the results are still the same. I hope blogger can trouble shoot this problem because there are lot of bloggers affected by this blog problem.
This pair of red slip on just fits for today's Ruby Tuesday. I bought this last weekend sale in the mall. It is simple, stylish and of quality kind. The heels are not so high so I can comfortably walk on it. It can be worn with a dress or slim fitting jeans. Marie Nicole (Figlia) brand is proven for its quality shoe products and I had been using this brand of footwear. The step-ins are reserved and ready to use for the upcoming family activities and office Christmas party.
One music artist who is great in her own craft, that's Beyonce Knowles. I am an avid fan of this talented woman who is making unique music that made her 10 Grammy Nominations including album of the year. What an achievement and that really deserved you. Looking forward for more great albums and performances. Congratulations B!
I am already spending hours online on my assignments. I have to search the different kinds of samples for the cash & cash equivalents as part of my accounting lessons in chapter 3. It feels sleepy and tired to do it. But with continued patience at last I am able to get what I am searching in the internet. I immediately saved it on my removable disk for printing and submission next week. Well, its hard balancing both work and studies. It is a month already and I survived it. With perseverance and prayers I will keep going on..God bless me ^_^
I went to the downtown district this morning (later than the usual time during weekdays) for some important errands to do. I have seen posters in malls having midnight sale tonight. Wow, almost every weekend is on sale! It is tiring to do the mall hopping so I opted to go to the nearest mall in Ilustre. I had been planning to buy some slip on for the upcoming family activities and I am lucky to buy a pair on sale. My shopper's card just added some points again.Sometimes it is nice to shop during sale season because prices are on marked down label.
This was how the sky looked like after two (2) weeks of mostly rainy days. It was 5:30pm when I took this shot. Dark clouds were about to formed and the reflection of the sunlight was still visible in the sky. Enjoy your sky seeing. Happy weekend to all Skywatchers!
A picture taken during a rainy day at home. I think it was raining successively for 3 days that time and I was glad to had a shot of these blooming narrow-leaved green herbage being watered by mother nature. A capture perfect for today's think green Thursday. Happy green day to all!
There are many online activities that you can do through the internet such as searching or downloading files, programs or any data that you would like to know. Because of the emerging popularity of the internet activities all the ideas are mainly found in different kinds of website. I am an internet savvy person and most of my activities are mainly dependent through the websites. One online search engine that I find interesting is about music torrents. Here you can download different kinds of searches that are mostly updated or the current ones. I have no problem in the process of downloading because the site is fast. A few seconds of waiting is all it takes and you can immediately get results that you wanted. When I discovered about this website I already get used to it whenever I have some important searches for my blog or for my studies. There are lots of new updates online so just check it out.
December is the happiest time of the year for me for many reasons--Christmas (Christ birth), family & friends reunions, parties, sibling's birthdays and many more activities that are trully enjoyable and fun. My first day of this month started with so many work at the office (reports, updates,consolidation,uploading,scheduling etc.) There are lots of concerns to attend to because it was holiday yesterday and and nationally declared as a non-working day. I still managed to finished my accounting assignments before my class started at 6:30 in the evening and also to update my opps and blogs here. Looking for more fruitful days ahead on this last month of the year 2009.
A pose of an ostrich during my camera adventure in a nature's park here in the city. I think this ostrich took a rest for a while because he was tired of running in a wide land area where they are exclusively taken cared of. This is my entry for this weekends' camera critters. Happy clicking to all!!.
It is Saturday again. I did an overtime work earlier today and was not able to finished because the system signed off at 7:oopm. The server has a weekly maintenance and update so I think the data center needed to logged-out all the users. I was able to upload several backlogs that would be counted for my output. It was already dark on the downtown streets when I got out of the office. I ordered a hot chicken congee meal in Chowking restaurant. A delicious meal that really filled up my growling hunger. Now I am feeling full from dinner and ready for some post updates here.
There are many events that happened for this year. It maybe happiness, excitement, sadness. etc.These made up our continued existence and struggles in this world. It made life more meaningful and wonderful to live.
May this celebration gives you a warmth of joy, abundance of happiness and lots of blessings. Give thanks & enjoy life.
Chrysanthemum and Gerbera bloom in November and considered as the flowers of the month. They are the symbol of happiness and friendship. Hope your day looks bright, beautiful and blooming as these flowers.
The week has been tough for me in balancing work and school schedules. I slept at early dawn already because I had to study for the examination. Time is just cooperative at the start of the day. This evening, I finished my subject exam ( first term) in accounting with proper concentration.(thanks!) The exam was all about concepts, theories and framework of the course. Identifying the correct words that best describe the statement. There were also acronyms that needed to be answered in full words. This course is an extra challenge for me. I hope to persevere the whole semester.

A curious stray cat behind the maluggay leaves captured my camera attention one rainy morning at home. It took me a while to got this shot because the cat was walking on top of the cemented fence. I had to call him to get his attention and he turned back for a pose. Great timing kitty cat. You are now my feature for today's camera critters.
Davao City is experiencing rainy days for almost a week now. It is not like the usual one time heavy down pour but a continued little rains that would stop for a while and then fall again and again.... well, this is what we call climate change.It is a mess walking down the watery and muddy streets in the down town area. I have to wear a hoodie jacket and umbrella as protection from the cold and rain. I already miss the sunshine. I hope the sun will come up this Sunday weekend.
I like shopping on many kinds of gadgets in the online market because you can have wide ranged of choices that are very much cheap, quality and updated. My brother and I was able to have some gadgets that we liked so much and we were able to bid and get the items through the site www.Bidhere.com. This is the only unique auction site offering great gadgets that you can buy and at the same time win. You can bid with the different offers of your choice through the website. The process on how to join is very easy as stated and explained in the site. I had a good chance because I was able to bid the Mc Book Pro and the Digital SLR. These are the gadgets that I had been wanting to avail. Through my online bidding I was able to have these personal favorites. My brother Dick was also lucky to have the Nintendo and AppleIpod. As I know, he had been bidding for these gadgets for quite sometime. After patiently joining in the online bidding he was able to get them all. His patience really paid a reward. As you know, online bidding is fun and challenging. That is why the two of us are really addicts as far as online activity is concerned. It was worth a challenge and you just have to know the rules and procedures so that the entire bidding activity would be easy. There are lots of new gadgets posted in the site and you can choose any kind that you think you would really need according to your lifestyle choices. Bid with gadgets that are truly useful. That is one of my suggestion as far my own experiences are concerned. So that when you received the item you would never regret but instead be thankful for the opportunity that this online website is offering. Christmas is coming up and so this is a good chance to shop some gadgets as gifts for friends and family this holiday season. I have many good remarks about the site but it would be better if you check out online to know more about interesting details on what I am blogging in here.
My weekend was busy but I really spent a time to watched the movie 2012 in the big screen. I was with Dick and his friend. While waiting for the last full show screening of 9:30pm, the lobby area of cinema 1 of NCCC Mall was lined up of movie goers. Many were really interested to watch this movie. When I entered the cinema, it was full packed of people and good thing we found a good sitting place. The movie was all about the doomsday of December 12,2012 . It was an action, drama and adventure movie that depicts what might happen when 2012 comes. Big floods, high intensity earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and many calamities happened. The introduction up to the end was all worth watching for. I enjoyed the 3-hours of the screening and it was fun and entertaining.Thumbs up for this great movie 2012!
Living with purpose is the only way to really live. When fulfilling life's purpose seems tough, don't give in to discouragement.Don't lose a minute in building on what you've been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness and generous love.
