Here's hoping

PAL just recently announced its promo for international flights. Just imagine, $58 for a round trip to Hong Kong! My mom suddenly said, "Let's go!" So to cut the long story short, we'll go to HK!

It's not only me, but also the little girl and my brother. You might ask where's hubby in all of this, well, someone needs to take care of the little boy while we are away. And besides, he will go with my dad in Iloilo during the long weekend (June 12-14).

Here's hoping that we'll definitely go by then. I mean, it's a great blessing for us to go there and I'm sure the little girl will definitely enjoy since we're going to HK Disneyland.

This coming week, I'll be out of the office - 2 days of institutional meetings and 2 days of VL. After which, I'll have 2 full weeks of work (because my little girl will have her summer class) and the remaining 2 weeks of May will be devoted to VLs. What to do? Well, aside from personal errands, need to do my never-ending paper. Ah, the pressure...

Wanted to blog, but nothing comes to mind.

I have a lot before and now it seems that I can't put them here.


Le sigh.

Have a lot of thoughts running in my head and I can't seem to organize them.

This is one of those days that my mind seems to conk out on me.

Friday blues? Maybe.

But I'll be back. Definitely.

Please be patient with me.

How Starbucks saved my life

This book is of great help. It's a revelation how an affluent guy, with a top position at one of the biggest advertising firms, was suddenly downsized at work and became a barista at Starbucks. So, if you're thinking of a career change, try reading this one. It's insightful and helpful in making career decisions and how to adjust to the new kind of work, going out of your comfort zone. My dad got it at a bargain price of less than Php 100, but currently is being sold at Php 500 at National.

New Toys

Everyone, I would like you to meet my new toys...

I just got my laptop last week, and this is my first laptop :) it's more of a notebook, actually. It's Gateway, and it's within my budget as a working mom. I got my cellphone free from SMART upon renewal of my subscription. It has WAP, so I can also browse anytime :)
