song that gives me chills

People say that I'm a fool, Well I don't know
At least I found out what it takes to be strong
I was dreaming all day long, A drifting cloud
With eyes wide open, I would choose not to see

Now I don't want to see you anymore
Don't want to be the one to play your game
Not even if you smile your sweetest smile
Not even if you beg me darling please

Say good morning to the world, I hope you like it
take good care of all those things that we have
I've been looking for a way for to long now
seems like everything must come to an end

Time after time nothing that I can do
Knowing your ways and loving your ways
But not getting through at all
Day after day leaving the past behind
Coming to terms with stitches and burns and
Learning to fly again.

wonderful weekend

last friday, we were given a two day rest day on sat and sun.
this was something unexpected. and im glad they did.
i decided to enjoy the two day rest with friends.
doing what we love to do.. chatting, shopping, reading, watching and eating!

a lot of times i missed their company. but as i've said, life goes on.
there are things in life that does not stay, no matter how beautiful they are.
so just treasure them while you have them, and bid goodbye when the time comes.
and tell yourself, life goes on..

good morning folks! :)

playing hard

there are things we do in life that starts with playing.
laro-laro lang sa umpisa.. pusoy dos lang sa cards..
habang kalaunan.. nagiging totoo ang laro..
the next thing we know..

na-pusoy na tayo...

ganyan yata talaga ang buhay.

ang laro...nagiging totoo...

samantalang ang totoo... madalas, pinaglalaruan.
hay buhay.

one of the first tip in starting new business is to simply start small. something that will ignite the entrepreneurial spirit inside you. so i decided a small loading business. something very small. that anyone can try.

let the journey begin.

looking for someone

looking for someone to be special in your life is really a tiring task.
for me its one of the hardest thing to do in this life.
or maybe, just maybe, im not destined to meet the right one.

have you ever felt that even if you give everything to a person, there will always be something missing and your efforts end up unappreciated?

its just frustrating when this situation happens to you with the people who are most valuable to you. you give the whole you, the whole 100% to them, and to them? its not enough. you could have done better. you have been this. you could have been that. why can't you be like him or her?


i am a person and i have my own values and i do have a functioning mind! why do you have to compare me to someone else?!

sometimes its really frustrating to be the only son.

Now add up the total number of points.

OVER 60 POINTS: Others see you as someone they should "handle with
care." You're seen as vain, self-centered, and who is extremely
dominant. Others may admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don't
always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.

51 TO 60 POINTS: Others see you as an exciting, highly
volatile, rather impulsive personality; a natural leader, who's quick to
make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you as bold
and adventuresome, someone who will try anything once; someone who takes
chances and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your company because
of the excitement you radiate.

41 TO 50 POINTS: Others see you as fresh, lively, charming,
amusing, practical, and always interesting; someone who's constantly in
the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go
to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and
understanding; someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out.

31 TO 40 POINTS: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful &
practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not
a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's
extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expect the same loyalty
in return. Those who really get to know you realize it takes a lot to shake your
trust In your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get
over if that trust is ever broken.

21 TO 30 POINTS: Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They
see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder.
It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then, usually decide against it. They think this
reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.

UNDER 21 POINTS: People think you are shy, nervous, and
indecisive, someone who needs looking after, who always wants someone
else to make the decisions & who doesn't want to get involved with
anyone or anything! They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that don't exist.
Some people think you're boring. Only those who know you well know that
you aren't.

respect and positions

as a manager of one of the promising food chain in the country, i am meeting a lot of managers with different kind of personality.

today, i met one manager who is asking to be respected simply because she is a manager.
i used to know this manager. way back in the past. so im used to call her by the first name.
one time i simply asked "where is tooooooooot?"
but one person actually heard me say that and told her that im not addressing her as mam.

whew. big issue.

when i said that statement, i am sure, 100% sure, that i don't have any malicious intentions of lambasting her name or her position. i mean, people! what is MAM or SIR or BOSS added to your name?? hays.

i am a leader as well. a teacher. and now a manager. but never in my entire life that people who do not address me as SIR or PROF or BOSS got me offended. I never use my position to gain respect to my subordinate. i believe it is more on being secure for who you are and for what you can do.

salutations does not make you a better person. it only makes the sound of your name pleasing to the ears. but how about the person? are you pleasing to the lives of your people?

be secure. do not be contented that people will address you sir or mam because you are in a position. I TELL YOU, it is sweeter to your ears if people will attach these salutations to your name out of their respect for who you really are. try it. its addictive.
