The Year that was... 2008

The Year that was... 2008

In a couple of hours, 2008 will be officially over. This will be my last post for the year like my recent entry I will be working this new year. But I promised myself a couple of things as sort of a new years resolution.

1.) 1. I will no longer smoke, maybe occasionally but not consume more than 2 sticks a day (Hey! It’s a start)

2.) 2. Spend more time with my siblings, I rarely get to interact with them…. Even if we live in just one house

3. ...Follow my passion, especially in my career life. Don’t get me wrong I love my job but I think I am currently in a stage right now we’re I don’t know what I want.. (To my managers, I’m sorry..)

So far this is my list of goals to accomplish, this does not include material objects cause I know I can get them but this will be my biggest challenge.

There are a couple of people I would like to thank; these are the people that made me who I am today. There witty comments and words of wisdom made me a better person…

To my Family

For ever being supportive in all my endeavor

To my Friends

For a shoulder to cry on and for always being there for me in my times of need. Also for the priceless memories you have provided me.

To Pooh

For understanding me completely and unconditional love. Even if I have tantrums!

To my colleagues/Work Family

For the Support, being super understanding and also witty words of wisdom. Don’t ever think that I have forgotten them...

To my agents

For the love and the support, I know that I am sometimes it seems that I am not supporting you or helping you, trust me you have no idea what we would do make you happy.

To my enemies

Thank you for making me stronger and wiser , I wish you the best this 2009

Well again, I am off to celebrate the coming of 2009 with a bang.

Until Then!

Happy NEW YEAR!!!!!!!

Spending the Holidays at the office

Spending the Holidays at the office

December 24, 2008, the eve before Christmas… at exactky around 7:00 pm my mom woke me up from my ever deep sleep since it’s dinner time. So I sat down with my family. Seeing that what use to be 10 is now 5.
My brother (including his family) and my sister is currenlt out of the country braving the concrete jungle and trying to climb a new/competitive corporate ladder. But when they left I was not sad but excited for them I know those two can survive anything… They’re what you call a trooper.

In the cebu, its quite scary when you ride a jeepney during Christmas, its not about you being robbed or mugged but rather they are fond of fire crackers here, just be on the safe side I rode a cab from Mactan to the office ( I just want to sure). This is the first time that I spent Christmas working in the office in my entire stay here in this industry. It was quite fun! There were still agents and low volume of calls for our team. Hurray! So I placed all of them on meeting and went to the pantry to do our version of the Noche Buena! He he I get to roam around the floor and greet everyone a merry Christmas…

Spending Christmas in the office is really not that bad, especially when you are surrounded by your friends and colleague. We even had a team meeting and ended up with a really funny conversation! I won’t disclose the topic but it ept me smiling for the rest of the shift. It is such nice to work in an environment were you can be yourself and have fun with your friends…

See spending Christmas in the office is not that bad…

Do you agree?


Last night as pooh and I were searching the internet, particularly www.zedge.com for cool themes to complement my cool new phone SE G900. After 48 years my phone finally decided to give up on me and retire. The whole reason that I was a bit hesitant to buy a new phone because I know a new phone will just emerge in the next 15 minutes, either better or have more/better features! And I always have separation anxiety over my phone. The music, Pictures, contact since my old N3250’s memory card is not compatible with my new phone… so I have to manually transfer a lot of stuff…. but it was so worth it!

So as I was looking at that site, this theme got my attention. Now I am not going to make any conclusion but it’s just amazing that this is the general view of women over men. What’s worse than that this is also the perception of men to his fellow “team mate”.

What do you think? Is this a bit unfair or just right? Let me know..

The Week that I went AWOL…

The Week that I went AWOL…

What a week! During my birthday week, super busy and yet super fun
Lets start it off with a drinking session with some of my colleagues in the office, that was my inspiration of my YIKES entry almost a week ago.

I am still trying to meet my quota for the conversation 101 in the office, trust me I am not getting any help (Hello?) and I am so far behind, I need a new plan.. hmmmmm

The next big event that happened was my birthday! My full moon birthday to be exact, at the same time it was our ops dinner at Mooon café at The Walk IT park, were Q, gave me a yummy money and since she was not able to find my shirt size and was afraid of giving me a shirt that does not fit, she gave me a Electronic GC for ayala! Yey! (Thanks Q!).

On that same week, I noticed that the moon was also full. I was able to read this!

“The full moon, which peaks Friday, December 12 at 8:37 AM PST at 21º
Gemini-Sagittarius is not only the brightest of the year, but perhaps also the most galvanizing. This is the fifth and final Super Moon of 2008.”

i really do not know what that really means, i just hope its more into prosperity!

Yes! I am guilty of this, being AWOL on my Blog

I went on awol for the reason’s that there were aspects in my Personal life and love life that needed immediate attention, we rarely have quality time with Pooh, with my parents and even with my siblings. So my goal before the year end would be to have at least one bonding time with them… one day at a time.

Post Script:
To those who greeted me on my Full Moon Birthday! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you!

As i was searching in both YouTube and Google for the latest character of Diablo 3 and also making the rules for the C.A.T tournament. One of my agents sent me an email attaching this picture, it made me laugh instantly because we always have a term in the office that we used to describe a person not having a good day, we always termed its as the red say or its his/her menopausal day. I don’t know for some reason this joke reached to our manager (Yikes!), some agent apparently used this to describe him when he seemed stress or not in the moo and whats worst he was there and he heard (double yikes!).

Peace out!

It’s the season again! Early this morning It started to hurt.
When I went to the office, most of my agents were also suffering from it.
The puffy eyes and red nose!

no they were not crying over love problems.

It’s FLU season again, agents are coughing and sneezing and the bad thing about it is if you are working in a cell center, it’s very cold due to the air-conditioning and the air is not safe/clean because you are in a compressed air environment.
This is bad, I don’t really want to get sick since I have a lot of things to attend to and also I haven’t finished my weekly coaching quota for my agents…

So guys! Stuck up on your meds and as early as now drink water, take vitamins and also have enough rest!…. Achoooo!

Just a friendly reminder, Achooo!

I just recently realized that there are a lot of online gamers in my account.

They approached me and ask if the old plans to have an online/gamers club since henrey and giovz started the RUBU (Running Buddies) club in my account.

So I did the leg work and yes there are a lot of people wanting to play like DOTA, Counterstrike etc.,

so with the help of Ian P, Paul, louise and Gelou we will be establishing;

C.A.T (Cyber Athlete Tournaments)

Here is our teaser that we will be posting on our support site;

it will just be a friendly game. The team that looses will have to pay for the internet fee of the other team... that's just one of the possible rules, but if we will be doing it more often and we have alot of participants then we will definitely do a TOURNAMENT!

its all in the name of team work and sports…

Ever had that feeling were everyday is becoming a DRAG?

And everything is just falling apart. It’s another Manic yet depressing Monday for me.

It’s been universally acknowledge that you cannot balance the two aspects of your life, Love life and your career. What if for some reason both, had a problem on that same day? How would you feel?

Me, I felt like the world was ganging up on me….Bad news from work and problems with my relationship (although I am thankful to pooh for being a strong and steady rock, and for not giving up on me!)

Being their leader, I am helpless… maybe because being a leader to my high profile team I developed this mother hen attitude, the need to protect them all the time. I know its wrong but I am only human! I also have feelings; I get hurt every time someone is trying to break my team apart.

I just wanted to escape! Get the hell out of the office and go home, cry and eventually fall asleep!

To Whom It May Concern:

I just wish you will also talk to them and explain to them the reason for a change; we could only do so far. I will not initiate or be proactive in telling you to talk to these agents; you need to do it at your own whim. They deserve an explanation as to why we are doing this and not just cause “it’s a business requirement”
