Kite Flying for Skywatch Friday

I had a hard time capturing this kite flying over the cloudy skies. I just zoomed my camera from the very tiny shot until I can focus the red kite. Thanks God its already Friday. Happy Skywatching to all global followers!

Stupidity at Work

My day was so terrible... I just can describe my work ambiance as totally annoying.I hate my boss for his "mess-management" as a section chief in the office. I had been firm and sincere as far as system rules are concerned and follow what is being regulated by the national office. Lots of complains were coming in the work section since yesterday because of the lack of initiative of those previous lazy employees who handled the backlog. This time the bulk of those backlog transactions came in and the transactions should be finished a.s.a.p... I am not a superwoman to magic everything and say "done"!. He even commanded to prioritize her friend who has a personal transaction that did not comply with the requirements. He felt bad at me because I questioned the authenticity of his friend's requirements. Stupid boss!!....I went out of the office late already tonight. I feel that all my energies are totally drain today.

Best of time

I love wearing watches. It is one of my favorite personal essentials at any activity or gathering . Time for me is just so important because I would be able to manage my scheduled tasks. It allows me to plan ahead some important things to do in my daily living. I am wearing a nice watch but I think nobody would say no if a great brand of Rolex watch will be put on your wrists right now . Wow, that would be great! I think I will immediately accept it. If I have an extra amount of money this time I would definitely buy for myself a long lasting Rolex watch. Not in any kind of store but to the most credible, authentic and genuine online shop I would prefer this site because they are renowned independent dealer of Rolex watches in the US.

Miss Universe Pageant

I had a chance to watch the most prestigious beauty pageant this morning live via satellite on television. Once again, its Miss Venezuela who got the crown for this year. Venezuela is home for beautiful women indeed because they were consistent for the second time in winning the Miss Universe title. Congratulations and good luck in your reign for the year 2009.
I was also impressed for Miss Philippines for representing the country. Even if you did not make it in the finals, you are still a pride because you graciously work hard and stand out for the Philippines. You are one beautiful Filipina in the pageant. Congratulations as well!

Great Weekend

Its a great weekend again! Three days free from the stress of work that started yesterday. August 21 was declared holiday in commemoration with the 26th death anniversary of the late Benigno Aquino. I stayed at home yesterday and did some household chores that I always neglected to do. I met with a valued customer of fern-c at noontime today and delivered her order. I have more time this afternoon to update my posts and perhaps early to sign-out and stroll at the nearby mall later. I have seen many banners about kadayawan midnight sale. Well, I have no plans for some sale or bargains but I just want to visit the mall and try to see whats happening in celebration with the Kadayawan festival.

A Vase of Flowers

A beautiful day to start with and looking at these daisies, mums, carnation and baby's breath flowers in my glass vase just made my morning wonderful. These flowers were given to me during the grand opening and blessing of the office. They were fresh, brightly colored flowers that delighted the center of the dining area at home. A capture just perfect for today's flowers. Have a great flowery day to all!

Jokes of the Day


After a stressful day, we all deserve a break and take time to read some jokes here. This is another forwarded email to me that I would like to share here:

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?""Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time. " The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning.The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee." The husband said, " You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee." Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says.........."HEBREWS"

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,"Please wake me at 5:00 AM." He left it where he knew she would find it.The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up." Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests. God may have created man before woman,
but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.!

Davao has been the place for indigenous people and the core of their existence continually lives until at present.

Mayor's Helicopter Visit

It was calm and quiet Sunday afternoon in our village. Around 4:00pm, the folks were roaming around the streets and some motorized tricycles were busy passing by. A loud noise of a helicopter can be heard at the back of the house where a park was located. It was the city mayor who arrived in a helicopter and paid a visit to the constituents of our place. Many people welcomed him including children. I even went to the park to take a glimpse and captured these shots. It was an unexpected visit from a respected city official and his gesture of visiting our place was one way of his being concerned about the way of living and the peace and order. It was frustrating though because when the camera was turned on to capture for video, it got off a sign of low batteries. Sigh, I missed it! Anyway, next time I would charge it in full for some unexpected moments to shot.

Horoscope of the Day

I am browsing some online sites and got to read about my horoscope for today.

" Feed your ego. Look in the mirror and remind yourself that you're something special. You'll continue to be optimistic, warm and happy, and with the universe still pulling for you -- and still coming up with the answers to your prayers even before you've asked for them. "

This brings a smile to my face when I read it. Though not all written about horoscopes are true, I find this as a positive note that somehow uplifts the spirit in every struggle of life.

What a Monday!

This could be an unforgettable Monday. I woke up early morning and prepared food so I can report to office before the time in. I patiently waited for the public transport for couple of minutes but it seemed that minutes reached to an hour and until it got more than two hours. The transport system was affected by some abusive transport services and that was the reason why many operators were not able to provide transport to the commuting public. I arrived mid-morning late in the office already but thankful that my boss understood my situation. That was the start of my day today. :(

Captured Tiger on Cam

Camera Critters
Some captured shots of the Bengal Tiger in Davao Crocodile park. This animal was caged in a big area of the park and I had a hard time for these shots.
I waited until he came out from a specially made shelter.

He was cooling himself in a pool.
Pics just fit for camera critters of the week. Happy clicking!

Saturday OT

My overtime work was just fine. I reported at the office early afternoon and did some uploading of early deadlines for Monday. The system service was fluctuating on the later part of the week. Good thing because the server did better so I had to take the opportunity to finished some deadlines on the earlier date. I logged-out almost 7:00 pm already and craved for some food to eat. Mandarin's siomai noodle soup just filled up my stomach's hungry desires. What a satisfying day! :)...This evening I still have energies to update this journal.

Everyone SMILES in the same language..

Lots of SMILES to make each day a little more happier to all!!

Special Holiday

Today is declared as a special non-working holiday. The nation is joining to pay the last respect for the burial of the late Pres. Cory Aquino. I stayed the whole morning watching television on the ceremonies that started from the church requiem mass, the motorcade and going to the cemetery. I am one of the millions of people who were saddened by her loss. The day is a celebration of gratitude and farewell. An unforgettable moment that would mark in history. I think she truly deserved this special holiday.

Weather for August

The weather bureau made some predictions regarding the weather for August. According to the news on television, more typhoons would be expected this month. It would be a watery month then. I like rains but it would be a disturbance in the daily activities if you always experience it almost everyday. Some places would expecting more floods and it could destroy livelihood and living. I will just keep posted for more updates and hoping for a favorable weather to come.
