merry christmas!!!

Today is december 22, 2006. 2 days before christmas!!! Everybody's busy either packing their gifts or still shopping for one, haha!The season brings extra energy to every Christian. It makes them feel more generous, more patient, more loving and more kind to one another!

Actually, we are now having a party here in the office. Their having their wine/beer session and I have to stay back because, as you may know, I don't drink. Gone are the days when the Corplan staff just go out for a simple dinner and go back to office for the raffle. This Christmas, we have this 'dami' food and we invited guests. Its not the usual intimate christmas celebration but its nice din spending the season with many people. Maybe, it is just my personal preference that i like a simple one.

We will all be very busy the rest of the week till we finally get back to our old selves come January. But I have to tell you first my itinerary for these coming holidays! Tonight i shall have to go back early to Calumpit because youth have the annual caroling. Tomorrow 23,I'll be going out for my toy project. I hope it will be well, pls pray for it.

i heart beads, etc

as the title said:
i heart heart beads! last week, i manned a tiangge for two days and it was great! they loved my beads and I couldnt be more proud!
The customers appreciated the necklaces and even told her friends to buy from me because they were all beautiful. I couldnt thank her less and I would even want to give it to her for free. I was so happy. It's value added when somebody else (third party) commends your work. wow!

- my crush aint my crush anymore. he was so young and immature pa. i think he's only 22. ok lang i wouldnt see him na naman after the IPO listing. meaning not anymore. well, not unless he asks me for a date. maybe then my view bout him will change.

- my toy project is still work in progress. please help me scout for a place to lodge the toys. the primary site for now are the mission point in malis and paligui.

- in two years or three years time you shall have to call me Master Em! Why not? by then i should have finished my Master of Science in Financial Engineering from La Salle none the less! ooops i guess it's either Master Em or Engineer Em!

- I will be on leave on the 27-29th. Yipee Yipee! cant wait for a vacation. san kaya ako pwede punta na walang gastos?

- I shall have to start packing my gifts. Haaay, can somebody help me?

- I invested some of my money on my COmpany. PNOC EDC! and the debut listing set a record high 4.55 which is 45% higher than its cost 3.20. hoping it will still soar high!

- Actually, i am still in the office. had to finish something. but lacks zest since it's tooo magulo and math formula has captured my brain since 2pm. I need rest.

- I need to go to the derma. I have this big zit on the forehead which is about to erupt hopefully not on Christmas.

merry Christmas everybody. I hope all of you is happy. mwaaah mwaaah

with Chairman Antonio Cailao @IPO listing

the havoc of typhoon reming

Sad. How could 4 calamities sooo big happen to just one province in a year?

Typhoon Reming had caused serious damage to Bicol province. This year alone several calamities had already strucked Region V. There was Bagyong Henry and the Mayon Eruption Henry & Mayon then the dreary Bagyong Milenyo Milenyo , who had brought heavy winds to this already beaten up province. And who would have known, another super-typhoon, Reming would be more destructive than the previous ones? Hundreds of people lost their lives as volcanic debris from Mayon came tumbling down to nearby barangays.

To date, Albay still doesnt have electricity and probably wouldnt have until after Christmas. Unpassable highways and broken biridges caused the supply of commodities to fall thus prices shoot up. Only making it harder to the Bicolanos.

Manila hardly felt Reming since it didnt pass the city. Those that are not affected willingly help their fellow Filipinos in the Bicol region. Glad that the Bayanihan spirit lievs on! Who says Filipinos doesnt care?

We all feel sad about all that has happened. Even though some of us might not have electricity, some lost their homes, some even lost their love ones, we still have a reason to celebrate christmas.

There is a God who sent His son to save us. We also have to remember that even Jesus didnt have a decent place on Christmas day.

"At kahit na anong mangyari. Ang PAGIBIG sanay maghari. Sapat ng si Hesus ang kasama mo. Tuloy na tuloy pa rin ang PASKO!"
