A nice surprise or…a sign from the Universe?

Obviously, I have been away this whole week, no thanks to the ongoing Inquisition currently happening at the office. So imagine my surprise when I checked back on this site and saw the many comments and congratulations from the many gorgeous people of WordPress. And then, I knew why (the congratulations from Meandering Matriarch gave…

Money matters and the search for part-time work continues

Sorry for the intermittent post. I am really having a rough week at work, I think I am losing all the good mojo I deposited when I was starting. Add to that new albeit very minor health concerns that just kept on popping one after the other. Yes, the might be not life threatening but…

Maintaining Commitments

The lack of post on this space for the past few days is not because I have abandoned my blog but because Sky Internet sucks helium in the service department. The house didn’t have our wifi connection for the past three days and you can bet that I have become stir-crazy due to the fact…

Dazed and Confused.

I used to have an office mate who had a habit of saying “Compuse” instead of “confused”. Imagine hearing this word “compuse” over and over especially if he is indeed confused.

Cruising

Do you love the sea as much as I do? So imagine my utter delight when my biggest client decided to launch FIFTEEN of the hottest cameras in the market today on board one of the yachts sailing in the interesting waters of the Manila Bay. It was my first time again to sail, five…

Let’s all waste our time having meetings!

Is it just me–or do you agree that meetings are major productivity killers? I hate sitting through loooong meetings with a passion, you know the type–a boring presentation, followed by a loooooong discussion where everyone tries to project an air of authority of expertise, intermittently mixed with people standing up answering phone calls, getting coffee,…
