Taking Notes

With the line of my work, i need to make many notes to remind me of the things i should not missed.  I’m currently maintaining a note pad to make my everyday lists and sometimes i still don’t know where to find something i have written a few days back.

My head is so messed up sometimes and each day, i’m getting excited for my new baby!  I’m a little bit ecstatic and somehow afraid but i’m praying that everything will goes well.  Please do pray for both of us!

Silly me!

There are times that my mind is not working and even i wanted to write something, i just can’t find the right words to say.  Yes, i needed time for some relaxation but this is not the perfect time for me to get lazy and just sleep around.  I always wanted to have a break but then i love exactly what is happening to my life now.

There are things i wanted to change, if only i can change it but if  i will be given a chance to do it, i might not do it actually.  Silly me!  Ooh, i must really be silly but yet i just want to express what i felt. Are you now reacting wild?  Yes , maybe not.  But you will agree with me that there are times that you feel exactly the way i do.  It’s natural we are  human and were alive.  It feels good that sometimes you get some odd feeling that you wanted to do something but you cannot do it.

There are times that you wanted something but even though how much you want and wish that to happen it would not and then you get dismayed or sometimes your heart aches for that but then you will realize that it is not the right time for you to have that or to feel that feeling.

Am i talking non-sense to you? Well, at least there is one truth you cannot deny.  You are still here with with, reading every bit of what I have written.  Ooh, i just don’t know really what to say.

What’s new? Hope you can nominate me!

What’s new?

It’s been a while since my last post.  I have posted last time that my laptop just broke down and because i don’t have any money to replace it right now, I have decided to claim for myself (LOL) the other computer in our office which was not used for a long time. Good thing it was repaired and now my problems were solved and i can do my office work without any problems.

My tummy is getting bigger each day although i am still suffering from morning sickness if it is still what I should call them but i am still hoping that my dizziness will be over soon. I really missed blogging and chatting with some old friends but hopefully i’ll be back on track again this December.  I have seen a lot of blog contest recently and too sad, I was not able to join them , hoping my luck will be as good as this year next year.

I have seen a recent contest held by Johnson’s and Johnsons  Baby World of Firsts and the prize is really beautiful and awesome and if it is not too much for you to ask to nominate me (LOL) that would really be lovely and beautiful gift for me and for my unborn baby.  All you need to do is to answer the Nomination form which was attached in their facebook account;

Rolando Mendoza – Philippine Policeman shocked the whole world

After a long and agonizing eleven hours, the hijacking incident that took the life of more than half of the passengers finally came to end.

The hijacker SPO2 Rolando Mendoza, once a decorated police officer and awarded as one of the top 10 officer of the Philippines was ordered dismissed by the Ombudsman forfeiting his retirement benefits along with five fellow policemen.  This incident might have been the reason that trigger Mendoza to hijacked the Hong Thai Travel bus at the front of the Quirino Grand Stand, Manila, Philippines with 20  tourist passengers mostly Chinese National and 5 fellow Filipinos.

(picture of the hijacked Hong Thai Travel Bus with the brother of the hijacker Police officer Mendoza and one of the negotiator)

The incident started at barely 7:00 in the morning according to the news but was only at around 10:00 in the morning when it was aired , hours passed and the negotiations among Rolando Mendoza and the police negotiator and according to Vice Mayor of Manila, Hon Isko Moreno they have been doing their best to accommodate the request of the hostage taker and eventually led to freeing nine hostages.

My whole family was stationed in front of the television as if were watching a movie, the only difference is the grief and the emotion we had is truly breathtaking.  As we heard the continuous firing from the bus and the unexpected running of the bus driver along with his shout that everybody in the bus was already dead, i really knew that the gunman will never let the policemen to capture him alive.

Time passed by with the policemen trying to forcibly open the front and emergency door but gunshots were fired from the inside making them to made their distance again.(picture from of  www.lexpress.fr)

Just then a commotion was made and policemen confirmed that the hijacker/gunman Rolando Mendoza was already dead, shot by one of the sniper positioned at around 25 meters away (as i have heard in the news) from the area.  Afterwards, remaining survivors were immediately alighted from the bus by the rescuer and with heavy smoke and foul odor coming from the tear gas, policeman decided to break the windows and I have seen from their that lifeless body of the passengers were passed through.

This was indeed a very tragic event on the history of Philippine News and Events. Lives were taken and the worst part, this were tourists who wanted to see and feel the beauty of our country.  But with this incident, what will happen to our tourism? I believe that we were once blacklisted in the other countries as one of the country which is not safe to travel because of the hostage drama that happens in the Mindanao wherein tourist were hostage and now another incident happened.  I believe that this will greatly affect not just our tourism but the security of our nation.

I’m back but had a terrible morning sickness!

Did you miss me?  I miss all of you and i miss my blog too but due to some unavoidable circumstances with my hosting, we were down for several days but luckily all things went well, thanks to Mommy Rubz for the quick disposition of things.

I have several post to do but my stomach and my head is really not well.  I thought, i will only be having evening sickness but now, i am also having this morning sickness as well.  I had a short nap but have to forced myself to wake up because i need to finish a transcript due this afternoon.

I hate this feeling, ooops, don’t take it seriously, I only hate the feeling attached to it but i am very much over joy to know that I’m on my way again on having a wonderful gift from God.  Everybody is looking forward to this new addition in our family and I am glad because i was not advised to have a  bed rest.  Now, i can do my usual things, blog here, facebook here, do my daily work and still have a time to play with our darling Peachy.

So, i am really sorry if i have missed visiting your blog too, i promised to that by this week and have you visit my new site? Hope you can add it too in your blog list.

GT- Emote Mode

I forgot to post this  from my draft!

Hello fellow GT ladies, it’s another week of getting to know you and although i have second thoughts on doing this topic, i really don’t want to miss GT.  Afterall, it’s the time we get to know each other.

Next to spirtuality,  emotional attitude is a topic most people don’t want to tackle. We would not like other’s saying how bad we are or how rude or how sensitive we are, even if those things are true.  Some people just don’t accept others opinion of our behavior and sometimes they were blinded of their own ego that they would not consider others advice.

I am the type of a person which others called a cry-baby.  I could not help not to cry even on small things, when i’m sad, hurt, mad, delighted, happy, touched,  and even when i am watching any television shows or movies that touches my heart.  I blamed my tear gland for that. LOL. It’s maybe my tear gland is full of water that needs to flow everyday.  There was a time that i am praying that my tears would last and there is nothing more to flow.

GT- Think, think, think

I could not say that I am gifted mentally nor can brag my life’s accomplishment but I am proud that i graduated my secondary years without my parent’s paying a single penny for my tuition fees.  My scholarship includes  uniforms, shoes,  school supplies, miscellaneous expenses, projects, monthly stipends and even an umbrella and a raincoat.

So, my grandmother has no reason to worry for my studies, even my father always brag about that he did not spend any money for my education from elementary to college.

When i was in college, i used to work in the morning to finance my study at night.  Although, i have the option to apply for a scholarship, i did not grab the chance because i don’t need an extra pressure on my part to excel in school because what I need is the money to supplement our daily needs.

Although i am always included in the honor roll , i still don’t believe that it is my intelligence that is working behind all of it.  I must say that it is the guts and my drive to finish my education that made the difference.

I always hate math and numbers, I would rather write and speak my mind out or talk in a public debate. That is why, I always love to join extra curricular activities where i can interact with other people and gain friends.

Yes, absent minded is my second name and I love day dreaming. I could create different stories in my mind and make it believe that it is true in my eyes.  If you would think that I am doing it to avoid the reality of life, your half true but i would say that it is a precious talent that our Good Lord has given me.

I always dream to become a novel writer and an ambassador,  although chance and circumstances did not permit me to do so.

I would love to read your stories too.
