o cge, nangamusta lang ako at back to work na. mejo dami work pero im trying to take it easy for our baby T.

The one with sinigang

Our baby T is 2 months na in my womb! hehe. (why baby T? pwedeng baby Tan, o kaya baby Tuta! nyahaha) sabi ko nga sa iba kong friends who know me as a dog lover...may tuta na kme! hahaha. joke lang at baka maging batik-batik nga ang anak ko.

anyway, we spent our weekend with a simple monthsary celebration and lunch with my bestest friends. saturday, july 22 was our monthsary (wedding and bf-gf, same lang) so we went to the mall. Sta. Lucia lang since di ako pwede lumayo. ate delia stayed at home while we were out. grabe, did i mention na hulog ng langit yang si ate delia?! she's our housekeeper. actually, sa house talaga ni simon sya madalas, ni-refer lang ni mommy alma sa amin. parang tulong na rin namin sa kanya, pero mas tulong sa amin yung ginagawa nya. imagine, sa isang buong araw...makakapaglaba sya ng tambak namin na labahin, clean our house, (as in lahat sa house ha), at kung ano-ano pa. basta, wala na kme kelangan gawin. whole day yun and she charges 250 pesos lang! sinosobrahan na lang namin to P300 and we give them food or whatever na meron sa house para thank you na rin. hehe, galing!

so back to kwento, we went shopping! my behbeh bought two polo shirts sa F&H, a pair of jeans sa Lee and a pair of shades sa F&H. ang saya nya ha! yung polo nga first time nya daw bumili ng shirt na 600 ang isa. haha, kurips talaga kme. kasi usually pang-polo na daw yun. eh sabi ko naman, treat nya sa sarili yun for having been promoted at work and monthsary naman diba?! nag-reason out pa eh. ako naman, i bought lang 2 blouses and some undies. mejo luluma na kasi ng undies ko and mejo masikip na. hihihi. so, we also tried on some pants na pang-preggo...pero for goodness sake, hindi magaganda! bat ganun?! laging may excess na tela sa likod. hahaha. eh kasi naman pinipilit ko na agad mag-ganun eh di pa naman dapat. i should just buy pants a little larger than my usual size diba? :)

tapos we ate at Max's kasi nag-crave kme sa sinigang! grabe, na-empacho ata ako! as in hindi ako makalakad sa busog at sumasakit na tyan ko...ang takaw ko! aside from sinigang na pork, we ordered chicken and chopseuy(ewan ko ba ke simon, di tlga bagay yung chopseuy sa order namin eh) hehe. tapos may dessert pa na leche flan and may mga fruit shakes pa kme. hinayang kme sa fruit shake ko and sa chopseuy kasi di namin nagalaw halos. tatakaw!!! pero i promise to lessen na my eating kasi ayoko rin masyado tumaba...not pala lessen my eating, yung tamang eat lang. :)

pag uwi, simon went to church na. di nya nako pinasama kasi wala kme car ngayon e :( eh naulan pa so mahirap mag-commute. i stayed at home lang and watched 24, at chaka read my fave book ngayon, "What to expect when you're expecting" hihihi.

sunday...we went to church...at dahil alam na ng mga ninong at ninang namin, including dun sa mga ka-member namin sa ministry, tuwang tuwa silang lahat. at ang dami advices na hindi ko na ma-grasp lahat. hehe. pero happy me that they're happy for us. i know a lot of people are praying for my baby.

tapos, i had lunch with the greenpark girls, my best friends. hinatid ako ng mga SIL ko kala naan and sumabay nako kay naan. we ate at somethin' fishy and guess what i ordered??? sinigang pa rin!!! ano ba yun?! love the labanos sa sinigang and the pork of course! chaka yung sabaw! sabi nga nila baka dun ako naglilihi...sa sabaw! nyah!

ang ganda ng mga topics namin...well, jannet has a problem at work but i know she'll get through it. she just has to be firm and stand for what is right. we prayed for her before we ate and napa-iyak sya sa prayer ko. i know God is doing something great in her life, she just has to wait for it. also, we are planning to buy Cash Flow 101 na boardgame, to purchase it from the States and plan to sponsor games here. mukang okay naman sya.

we also plan to pursue the franchise business na napag-usapan before. well, we'll meet some other time on that para mas mabigyan ng pansin at madesisyunan. naisip ko nga eh, i think i should do again the 5-year timetable of my life. dati ginawa ko na yun and prayed for it and in God's grace, lahat yun natupad naman. promise! kaya nga i think it's also best that Simon and I do it again para ma-plan din namin at mapag-pray ang future years namin.

park muna ako...work na ulit...have a nice rainy day everyone!

The one with surprised parents

Hahaha...kakatawa mga parents ni simon. when we went there the other night to break the news, akala ni mommy alma gift lang namin sa kanya yun. sabi nya, "eh kakabigay mo lang sa ken ng bag ha..." sabi ko, "open nyo lang po." eh di si daddy, nakiki-usyoso kasi bakit wala daw sya gift. hahaha. when they saw the infant clothes, tawa ng tawa...maya-maya nag sink in na may baby na nga when they saw the ultrasound pic. nyahaha. pero bakit ganun, lagi sila tatanong muna kung ano yung ultrasound pic? di ba sila nag-ganun dati? hihihi.

the sisters are so happy also! aba, excited na mamili ng mga gamit for the baby at mag-shop din daw ako sa gingersnaps and orange juice! juice! ang mahal naman! hehe. kurips pa rin! so there, it was one happy evening...we had dinner pa and nagkwentuhan pa kung ano pa nararamdaman ko.

the thing is...wala ako nung mga morning sickness na yan...promise! except that mabilis ako makatulog sa gabi (kasi ayoko na mapuyat), matakaw ako (pero dati na naman ako matakaw) hehe. and my sense of smell eh mejo heightened na. ewan ko, madali ako mabahuan kahit wala naman naaamoy ang iba. hahaha. weird! ano pa ba??? oh and mejo lumalaki na puson ko!!! have to buy new panties, bras, and pants pa.

tomorrow monthsary na namin!!! yipee!!! san kaya gimmick namin ni beh??? hmmm...kwento ko na lang ulit. have a happy weekend everyone! :D happy birthday too jannet!

Part 2:

lunch time - i ate tilapia and veggies sa canteen. tapos, nag-crave ako for yogurt and peanuts. eh super init sa labas...guess what i did??? lumabas pa rin at bumili! nyahaha. lagot ako kay behbeh ko! shhh...quiet lang, walang magsusumbong. sarap nung yogurt! berry mix, super fave ko tlga yun. pero yung peanuts...yuck! ang alat. isa pa lang nakain ko, nisara ko na yung bag. eeewww...pakain ko na lang kay simon. hehe..

nag-request ako kay simon that we cook (he lang pala) sinigang later...at maraming labanos!!! nyahaha...para maputi ang baby! nde, joke lang!!! (half-meant)

o sya, back to work!

The one with the first visit to OB

We were supposed to meet Dr. Sharon Cruz as recommended by a lot of my officemates, kaya lang 2nd day na sya hindi pumapasok because she had to attend to her husband, so i went to Dr. Carmela Madrigal-Dy who's also good and magaling daw...maganda pa! hehehe.

i went to Health First at 430pm na. then she attended to me at past 5pm na (dami patients eh) she asked me kung when ang first day ng last mens ko. i guessed lang, sabi ko may 29. based on her computation, dapat mga 7 weeks and 4 days na daw si baby. i doubted kasi baka na-delayed lang ako ng june kaya mga july lang sya na-conceive. so she suggested that we have a trans-V ultrasound to know the gestation period of the baby...yikes! baka masakit ha...

so i paid the bill and went straight to the ultrasound room. when i lied down na, may nakikita nako na some device na nilagyan nya ng petroleum jelly. sabi nya, "this might be a little uncomfortable ha..." sabay dahan-dahan nipasok ang device. yikes! uncomfortable nga! pero when i saw the sac of our baby and how little he/she is...di ko na naisip na may device sa loob ko. hehehe.

this is how our baby looks like at 7 weeks...
Baby Tan...so small!
if you see the tiny white spot inside the black thing...that's our baby! hehe. the black is the sac and the super liit spot is ours. (sorry for resolution at phone image lang yan)

pero malikot!!!
we bought frames for parents and for us ni simon...nasa office desks na namin now.


sabi ni doc, based on the measurements of the sac, the baby is 7 weeks and 1 day! yahoo! and may heartbeat na sya!!! medyo irregular pa nga lang daw kasi nasa developmental stage pa lang sya. they'll do doppler on me at 10 weeks ata. pero we saw the baby moving, yung prang nag-biblink sya kasi gumagalaw. basta, di ko ma-explain! hahaha. super happy kme! doc asked simon to come inside and see the ultrasound. he documented it and videotaped it. yey! saya! confirmed na may baby nga!!! she also checked my ovaries and in place naman daw lahat. i was asked to come back some time in august and have a number of tests and check up ulit. was also given medicines for the baby's development.

after that, we went straight to Sta. Lucia and did some shopping...kung pano namin sasabihin sa mga parents namin. hehehe. we bought small picture frames, infant clothes, and mittens. the mittens are for my bestest friends (mahal na masyado kung lahat may infant clothes eh...haha) the clothes pa pala are 25% off! haha. galing! we also bought shoes for me na walang heels. eh gusto ko pa sana libutin kaya lang ayaw na ni simon at baka mapagod daw ako.

my new shoes
laki ng paa ko!

so we bought a paper bag, photocopied the ultrasound of the baby and framed it, tucked it inside with the clothes and a little note for the grandparents...kunwari galing kay baby! nyahaha. (eh naka-computer pa...wow, marunong na mag-computer ang baby!)

we went first to my parents. ate muna dinner (favorite sopas and fried galunggong...the best!) after the yummy dinner, we gave the gift na. akala pa ng mommy ko may binyag kme na pupuntahan. hihihi. tapos, she read the note muna. when she read "baby tan" tuwang-tuwa na. then they opened the little clothes and they saw the frame. hahaha. tawa ng tawa at napatili si mama. my dad was happy and immediately embraced simon and me. we exchanged hugs and kissed tapos kwentuhan na of how the check-up went and ano pa mga symptoms ko. sabi ko, wala naman masyado, except that i love to eat. yikes! after the tawanan and hulaan what gender the baby will be...we went home na. ang plan talaga is to go home saglit and go straight to simon's parents. kaya lang nagloko na naman si babes and it wont start. kainis! so di namin nasabi pa sa parents ni simon. mamaya na lang ang gimik...pagkagaling office, derecho na kme dun.

in fairness, makapit ang baby Tan ha...kasi for the past month, iam so sure i was so stressed and very malikot kasi dami nirurush pero talagang our baby is holding on to me. haayy! saya! sana tuloy-tuloy na talaga.

oh and another good news! simon has been a talent artist for GMA for almost a year na...not that nagrereklamo kme coz before feeling namin ok kung talent lang sya than regular para he'll have other time for other projects...pero mas ok pa rin ang regular para sa benefits diba? so...magiging regular na sya!!! she talked to the big boss and she immediately agreed naman. today, july 19 ang orientation nya. ang bilis noh?! hehehe. praise God! when it rains, it pours!!!

The one with a BIG surprise!!!

it's a beautiful day!!! i woke up feeling dizzy, nauseated and parang laging gutom. i asked jenny to buy me a preg kit...and while nagjajabebs ako, nagtest nako. pangalawa attempt ko na to, kasi nung first, wala lumalabas na urine. hehe, pa-suspense. so syempre, pagkadrop nung urine, nilagay ko muna sa likod ko at nagjabebs ako plus nag text ng konti. dahil pang-limang test ko na yan since december, parang ayoko rin masyado mag-hope dahil nakakalungkot at sayang ang money pag negative. hihihi.

so syempre, eto na...after a few minutes...daran!!!!

two pink lines!!!

OH YES!!! TWO PINK LINES!!! ETO PA ISA...

positive!!!

PRAISE GOD!!! ANG SAYA-SAYA! when i saw it, napaluha lang ako sa tuwa. speechless and i prayed and thanked God for everything. ibang klase talaga ang timing ni Lord, perfect!!!

tapos, naghugas nako...hihihi...di pa pala ako tapos mag jebs nun. nyahaha.

so after that, na-announce ko na sa office. i also emailed my friends na and happy rin sila. ang hindi ko pa nasasabihan are our families, simon and our close friends. gusto kasi namin personal eh. so there...magiging mommy nako!!! yahoo!!! it's an answered prayer. talagang totoo na when it rains, it pours....

so pano ko sinabi kay simon...ganito yun...

we've been having suspicions already if im pregnant kasi nga maraming physical developments na super obvious, kahit sya nagugulat. (oo na, lumaki daw boobsies ko!) nyahaha. di ko na detalye at baka marami makabasa nito., so anyway, i asked him to meet me sa clinic namin early para makapagpa-check up kme agad. before ko sya i-meet, i bought a crystal glass pacifier, wrote a note na kunwari sa baby namin galing, and in the gift is my pregnancy kit...the only evidence that yes, im pregnant.

so pagdating ko ng clinic, wala pala ang OB ko at may emergency daw. nyeh! suspense pa ha. so tawag ako sa kanya. eh since nakaalis na rin sya office, nag-meet na rin kme sa shang. i went to starbucks 6th level and prepared my gift. :D simple lang ang gimik ko kasi gusto ko na talaga sabihin sa kanya dahil morning pa lang tinatanong nya nako if bumili nako ng test. eh ayoko naman sabihin na positive dahil gusto ko nga makita ang reaction nya diba??? so when i gave the gift, nag thank you pa sya. sabi nya, "ano to?" sabi ko, "basta..."

pag open nya ng gift, he first read the note. sabi nya, "hehe...ang cute, daddy...kunwari baby ko nagsulat..." the last line said, "i can't wait for you to teach me music daddy, baby tan" cute noh?! tapos, nakita nya yung pacifier. sabi nya, "wow, ang cute naman nito!" (di pa rin nakakaramdam ang mokong!) tapos when he saw the test, ganito kme...

"eh, eto ano to?!"
"eh di preg kit."
"ano ibig sabihin?"
"pag one line...negative, pag two lines..."
"ha?!?!?! wiheeeheehee!!!" (tapos napatahimik na sya at ngiti lang ng ngiti)
(hanggang sa may mga luha na sa mga gilid ng kanyang mata at pinunasan nya ito)

these are the only pictures i was able to take kasi naiyak din ako eh kaya di ko sya nakuhaan agad.

speechless daddy!
ayan...puro gilagid...hihihi...at mejo tumubo na rin ang buhok nya...di nya sya kalbo

eto pa isa...
namumuong luha na yan...
he's holding the note and the pacifier dyan. di nya na hinawakan yung kit...hihi, baka amoy wiwi eh. nyahaha.

after that, tatayo na kme, naka-alalay agad ang asawa ko. wahaha. sabi ko, "beh, di naman ako matanda..buntis lang." ang bagal namin maglakad...we decided to go home agad kasi gusto nga namin dumaan sa mga parents namin to break the news.

eh pag uwi namin, tinamad na ang lola nyo dahil nakita ko na ang kama namin. eh sarap pa naman ng weather kahapon...hihihi. tamad ang anak namin! tapos, he went out to buy food, and prepared it for us. bukas na lang kme gigimik sa mga parents namin.

when we were on the bed na, himas ng himas si simon kay baby. kiss pa ng kiss. tapos nagising ako ng 3am...i saw him awake pa. sabi ko, baket gising ka pa? di daw sya makatulog dahil iniisip nya baby namin. i know he'll be a good and wonderful father. we ended our day with a prayer to thank God for everything and prayed that everything will be fine with me and the baby. :D

tomorrow na kme mamimili ng shoes ko and pants (yes, bawal nako mag-heels and wala nang kasya sa ken na pants...nyahaha) and we'll also buy baby clothes pang surprise sa mga families namin. yun ang gimmick namin. hehehe. :D

thank you Lord!

The one with letting go

This is a topic i never wanted to hear...death.

It's just so sad eh...when i read con's post about her aunt, saw glo's last post on her blog (her mom passed away). basta, ayoko ng ganung topic. alam ko, we all had to go through it pero di ko ata kaya. just the thought of it makes me cry.

everytime i'd think about losing my mom, or my dad, or Simon...napapaiyak talaga ako. kahit saan man me, naluluha ako. kasi parang di ko talaga kakayanin. yun lang. I know God controls our lives and alam ko naman that His plans are for the best lagi, pero syempre tao lang ako...as much as possible, the ones we love most...gusto natin kasama natin sila hangga't pagtanda.

na-sad lang talaga me. so gloomy day...

5 freaking days til the Conference!

The one with Bokal, Bukol

yesterday, nagpakalbo ang behbeh ko! hahaha...gwapo pa rin! dami nga lang hair sa pillow kasi sa gupit, di ba naman sha ni-shampoo ng barbero! eh sandali, bakit nga ba hindi nagshashampoo ang barbero??? hmmm...

tapos, yung bukol ko po sa right wrist ko...nawala na! miracle??? hehe, accident! mai, ano nga ba tawag dun? ganglion cyst chenes ba? basta, when i had it checked sa doctor namin last month, sabi dapat daw operahan pero minor lang daw ang operation ang hindi rush. so di ko muna pina-opera and sabi rin ni mai (she had the same condition) pag di naman masakit, wag pa-opera.

so anyway, nagmamake-up ako kanina...tapos, nung binalik ko sa drawer yung things ko, tumama yung bukol ko sa drawer. sabi ko pa, "aray! sa lahat naman ng tatamaan oh?" tapos pag tingin ko, flat na yung wrist ko!!! napasok na ulit sa loob yung bukol! nyahaha!!! yuck ano?! pero nakakatawa talaga! ayos! instant surgery!

hehe. o sya! bought Wedding Essentials mag last night! super ganda! the best! :) congrats marbee, cynthia, ria and the team! kudos!

Tuesday, July 04, 2006

The one with a big cry

grabe, i cried like a baby kanina....napapagod na talaga ako sa work...im getting really anxious with the conference next week and the launching of my product...haayy!

Lord, please give me the strength. I draw strength and wisdom from you. Guide me in whaever decision I will make.

After two hours or so, I went back to my boss...and he signed my project! Praise God! i thank for my officemates who supported me.

Grabe, everything is a test...

The one with a whole lot of kwentos

I'll just write everything coz i might forget things...God is good and God loves me.

June 29, 2006 - The not so premiere night of Superman Returns
~ hahaha. eh kasi 28 ang 1st day eh so hindi na sya ganun ka-premiere showing pero super fun kasi libre ang tickets namin sa Eastwood cinema! wohoo!!! courtesy of our AE at richmonde hotel sheila castro! thanks dear! sa super dami nga lang ng tao...we were'nt able to seat na magkatabi... pati si lissa and wowie, magkalayo! hahaha. pero super gwapo ni brandon routh! waaahhh!!! para syang hindi totoong tao! the movie was great! it met my expectations and more. kaya lang, parang pinagkasya nila lahat ng events in one movie para talagang "returns" ang dating. :)

July 1, 2006 - The sinigang
~ i went home early, did some grocery for my hubby and cooked sinigang...pambawi ba kasi for the past few days, lagi kme kain sa labas or sya nagluluto. sowee! i also prepared mango float for our dessert sa sunday sa dinner namin with the opposwim group! kaya lang si simon naman ang wala...nag-practice sa church that's why late na sya umuwi. tapos, pag uwi nya pa...kumain sya mag-isa lang kasi sleep nako. pero pagpasok nya room, nagising ako...tapos nahirapan na me makatulog ulit. ehhh, we had to wake up early pa kasi may breakfast date kme with friends at somethin fishy sa eastwood...so tuloy ko kwento sa next date below.


July 2, 2006 - The longest sunday ever!
~ so we woke up at 5am, took a cold shower, then drove to eastwood...para lang mag eat all you can sa something fishy!!! kulit talaga namin!!! it's actually a celebration of achie's bday...chinese na chinese talaga, umaga pa rin ang celeb! hahaha. but we still had fun kahit unti lang kme andun. sarap kaya kumain!!! after that, we headed straight to church na. Pastor Babes Paulate gave the preaching and ang ganda ng preaching nya.

The one with simon's first facial
~ after church, di pa kme nakuntento. we went to rob. metro east to get some facials and massages. we were with simon's sisters kaya ang saya namin! silang lahat nagpamasahe...ako lang hindi kasi baka preggy eh...sayang! hehe. tapos nagpa-facial rin kme ni simon! first time nya!!! i would have taken a pic of him kaya lang fina-facial na rin ako...di ko na nagawa, sayang. but it's not a good sight rin naman seeing all the blackheads and white heads. hahaha.

~ after that, we went to Body shop, eh sale so napabili ako. kaya lang lip gloss lang nibili ko kasi yun lang kelangan ko (kakabili ko lang ng clinique set e). as we were strolling, pasok kme sa girbaud. sale din kasi. i saw this really cute sneakers for simon...red! danda! binili namin. i saw this cute red bag also...super akong-ako...kaya lang di namin binili. :( ang dami ko na daw bags! wala nga eh!!! ok lang, di rin naman sya kelangan na kelangan.

~ after our malling and spa, we dropped off muna simon sa apartment and i joined the sisters for a grocery at robinson's junction. di na namin sinama si simon kasi gusto nya na matulog, sayang daw ang masahe. hehehe. bought some items lang for dinner later with our bestest friends! grabe, sa init! kumikintab ang mukha ko! yaaakkk!!!

~ after grocery, hinatid ko muna sila sa village nila then i went home na. ang behbeh ko hindi naman natutulog...he was enjoying his pacquiao moment! so proud to be pinoy! mabuhay ka pacquiao and to all other boxers who won!!!

~ after the game, di nako makatulog so naglinis na lang me and then nagluto na ng chopseuy to partner the liempo that naan and jason will bring and jill's soup.

The one with the dinner
~ so syempre, when i say they go to our house ng dinner time...it pwedeng 8pm yun, or 9pm to that matter. hehe, sanay na sanay nako sa amin. they started arriving at 830pm, syempre una sila naan and jason (as always), sunod na si jannet, then jill and jhon! tapos di na kme kasya sa house! hahaha. so we headed to the roofdeck agad. buti na lang di umulan. katuwa, enjoy kme sa taas. sarap kumain! sarap mag-games, and picture-taking (sorry, no pic pa rin kasi nasa pc po ni simon lahat ng pics namin)

~ after that, we went back to the apartment na...and guess what?! naglaro kme ng Metal Slug!!! grabe, na-addict na rin sila. that PC game is one of our bonding moments and katuwa na na-enjoy nila yung game. graphics is really good and weapons. yun nga lang, ang downside...everytime we play that...napapasigaw tlga ako, "Sugod!!!Die!!!!Aaaaahhhhh!!!!" as in, warfreaks! hahaha. but enjoy kme everytime we play that kahit puyat-puyat na kme pareho kakalaro. si jill and naan, grabe tumili pag naglalaro! si jannet naman, kunwari daw pagod na at maaga uuwi...eh sya nga yung pinakamatagal naglaro eh! hahaha.

~ i love you our bestest friends! magkakasama na tayo since we were kids and i hope to look forward to the time that our kids have kids already and we're still together! muah!

The one with twenty-something

Ive read somewhere that in one's life, we all undergo the what they call "the twenty-something" crisis. shucks! i really have to find that email. it's so nice and i think i can totally relate to it right now.

sabi dun, this is the time when we think if the work that we have right now is the right job for us...

we adjust to the family life that we get into once we get married and have kids...we feel responsible for whoever they will become and what they will accomplish in life.

we think and rethink of the life we want...eto na ba yun??? tama ba ang tinatahak ko na career?

we value our families and friends and realize that they are the only people who listen to us and help us in times of troubles.

super nice yung email na yun that i got from naan. i really need to read that again! i'am at a point in my life where i'am searching for God's purpose for my career life.

~ as i've said, ive always wanted brand management. kaya lang, baka i may be wanting it for the wrong reasons. baka hindi talaga yun ang gusto ko gawin. ewan ko, sabi ko nga lagi, work should not be a burden. yes, it's hard but it should not control my life.

~ feeling ko talaga, one move ko lang na mali, mapapa-resign talaga me ng di-oras. that's why i really need God's guidance right now. ayoko na maiba yung decisions ko dahil i did'nt pray for it. i always seek His will in my life. mahirap kasi kung basta-basta lang. and nafe-feel ko that He is doing something...His works are just unexplainable and mysterious pero perfect sa timing. kaya i'd always want to make sure that I depend on Him.

~ pero syempre, being human as i'am, nahihirapan talaga ako. naiinggit ako sa asawa ko who works at what he loves best...music. yung parang kahit marami sya work at tambak din tulad ko, nakikita ko that he's happy and that he feels like he's not working kasi music ang ginagawa nya. haaayyy!!!

~ so, what's that one thing that i love to do??? should i look for other opportunities???

~ parang naisip ko na mas ok pa yung employed pero tama lang ang pressure para i can have time for my small business. settled nako dun eh. wala nga lang career growth.

~ that's just it! wala rin naman ako career growth pa dito...kaya rin siguro hirap ako to do anything. may kulang.

~ pero...sabi ko nga, everything happens for a purpose! God designed everything with a master plan and He holds the blueprint of my life.

~ i learn to take life one step at a time...learn to breathe and relax...learn to say that "it's just work...it should'nt control my life"

bow!
