i’m going home to the place where i belong

my hubby is planning to come home for the graduation of his one and only brother, Alen from University.

he planned to tag me along, since there was work responsibilities given to me, i was quite afraid whether my leave will be approved.

he still booked me on the same flight as his, without having my leave approval.

he booked on march 1…and my leave was approved on march 7.

since it was a different manager who will be approving my leave, i was full of hopeful prayers that it gets approved, and it was indeed approved.

thanks to my ex-boss and new boss and my colleagues who will be doing my work in my absence.

and yes, i’m so excited to go back home


back to blogging…

it has been a year since i last updated my blog,… maybe i got too pre occupied with work

there’s something to be happy about today…

finally levelled up in my career, thanks God for the blessings
received a paycheque with a good performance bonus

announcement has been up…. i’m one among the blessed ones who has been promoted from the company, there were quite a few, i have skipped 1 level and levelled up.

i received a lot of PODs ( our internal company chat ) congratulating me for the new post.
truly God has blessed me this year.

though at first, it was a tough decision to take with so many meetings prior to accepting the offer ( naging choosy pa, di ba? )
finally , this is it… all 3.5 yrs of hardwork paid off.

it is a bit of challenge but hope i can cope with it, and go to the next level again in 6mos…

i think, this is truly my year, year of the rabbit…

i’m back…

it’s so great to be back!

on the other note, i am busy preparing for my on line invites to friends.
i have finished some of my recipes for tomorrow…and i am happy because i will be on leave…

just a hope that i am with mom and my siblings, but i know their thoughts are with me, my mom was the first one who greeted me and my aunt mayet…

3 weeks in a row…

its been 3 consecutive weeks that i’m working on a saturday.

originally, its 2 saturdays in a month lang….

ang blogging bang ito is to complain…eh hindi naman, parang gusto ko lang i express kung what’s behind the reporting weeks.

lately, my manager was on leave for several days in 2 weeks to do baby sitting….so syempre, ako ang dakilang gagawa ng trabaho naming dalawa…and somehow i survived…

siguro napi feel nya i can tackle the job without mess at all…(yabang ba, confident ba masyado?) eh yun ang totoo eh.

i think, eto na ang training ground nila for me…to be able to do the things by my own so that later on, maging ok…ang tanong?  may kahihinatnan kaya ang pagod ko…

though somehow, i am really enjoying my work, ganun talaga, i need to prove to them that i am capable for any career advancement….

sana nga lang yung naipangako sa akin last appraisal last feb, mangyari na…they will start training me and to mold me for a better career challenge…

when kaya yun? excited na rin kasi ako eh…sana lang…God willing!

the struggle week to foresee..

since i will be in great battle this beginning of the week, i had enuf of the rest and sleep i could ever have.

i got no saturday work, giving me more excuse to take all the sleep i’ve lost for the past week.

my BU Mgr will be on leave for 3 days, which means i will be left doing all the export things alone….struggling, the battlefield of workload and just the thought kills me, so help me God.

I was asking God for more strength, presence of mind and the ability to cope for 3 days.

i know i was able to do it last time when my boss was not around, but its totally different now that the workload is really more than a truckload and what my memory could ever bear to carry…exag ba? pero yun talaga ang reality.

i could imagine myself going home again soooo late….i admit to be guilty of not having been a good wife to my hubby just because of being too much busy with work…being too much pre occupied with work never permits me to have quality time with him, which i am starting to hate now.

if only i can resign and find another not so toxic job like this, i will…but of course, i want to build good image in the company…kumbaga utang na loob nga naman for them being so good to me, but the workload ang pinaka reklamo ko lang talaga.

ito ang conversation namin ng BU Mgr ko last Friday.

him : ” i will be on leave for 3 days, here are the files that i’m leaving to you (he was talking to me and my supervisor ”

moi : oh, i see, can you brief us what to do with those files.

him : easy but tricky and complicating

moi and sup : (looked at each other, with our eyebrows raised)….haay, die die

sup : don’t worry i will try to help you when i’m settled

moi : (at the back of my mind, i know she will really do support me, but she got her own workloads as well)

bu mgr : don’t worry i will try to do what i can do from my end

moi : die die _____

bu mgr : you need to learn and stand in your own feet, firm with your decisions as i can’t be always here all the time

moi : (parang paramdam na yun, bad trip di ba? ano yun mag re-resign ang lolo mo…omg!

Lord, how i wish i can have time to finish work on time this week, the only tolerable time to go back is 7pm so i can spend quality time with hubby.

i don’t want to ruin the relationship just because of being too workaholic…

if he only knew, that i wouldn’t want this situation i am facing now, but i was left with no options but to finish the work….

tamad mode and updating of entries…

Due to busy skeds recently, i’m on my most tamad mode to even blog and update.

A lot have been happening in my life pero wala lang talaga me sa mood to write…

Sige update na nga ko…

1.  Yesterday, 24 April, It was my scheduled off in lieu, since it was the wedding of our friends, Pau and Vieve, i have filed half day instead

Work update…so off from work ako in the afternoon…since my colleague and only 1 colleague in the team have gone off for her resignation, super busy ako sa work coz i have to take over her work, though my manager helps me din…pero syempre, doble pagod ako di ba…kasi ang workload ko double na…. I sometimes feel so tamad na parang di na gumagana utak ko with the heavy workload, pero para namang may choice ako, ni i organize and sort out my mails into their folders di ko na magawa….coz i want to try to be efficient in my work kahit nga sobrang uber na trabaho. Syempre this is my time to shine and to show them na kaya ko…so from work i had to rush things in half a day and delegate to my manager what is to be left to him…super bait naman nya about it…at hindi talaga ako inistorbo entire day….that’s what i like about him….super galing talaga…and will make you relax pag off mo.

Sistah update…since i promised my sister that i had to send her the 1 week package for her, syempre off to Lucky Plaza ako to canvass how to save in sending her the stuff she asked me to buy.  Punta muna ako sa mga forwarding industry but they charged too high, since I had our messenger canvass for me from Singpost, so dun na lang preference ko…yung 4kgs is worth sgd 100 equals na rin sa Php 3000.  Pero transit time is 2 weeks…wala lang akong guts to include yung perfume ng sister ko pero pwede if properly packed ko lang sana….paano pa yung talent ko sa dg cargo kung hindi ko kaya di ba?

Wedding update…after sending package to my sis in mauritius off to wedding ako, tinawagan na nga ako ng groom kasi they want me to witness and i had to take cab from Lucky Plaza….ang saya ng wedding nila sa ROM ( Registry of Marriage ) parang civil rites equivalent sa Pinas.  Tapos photo ops kami with my hubby as their photographer and me as the photo director for the shots…ang ganda ng kinalabasan.  syempre, yung kainan na rin which in fairness is a good caterer…sarap din ng food….and may pabaon pa kami….
