My Cinderella Shoes

While in Surabaya, we went to a shopping center Atom. Its similar to our 168 here. I saw really kinky shoes and sandals from a certain shop. Bought 2 pairs at Rupiah 330,000 or in our currency Php 1,650 per pair. Wow. Great. Went home happy!

But when I arrived in Manila, opened my luggage, tried my cinderella shoes and guess what I found out. Check the pictures.

The sales girl gave me the pair in different colors and in different sizes. What can I do? I can only laugh.

I called up my friend in Surabaya to purchase the other half. I hope its still available. read more

12 Little Things Every Filipino Can Do To Help Our Country

While we were waiting for our flight to Jakarta, I came across a bookstore in the airport. Too many books to choose.. Twilight.. New Moon… I know a lot of us would want to know the next chapter of Twilight.. but no, I want to watch it so I will just patiently wait for the movie.

When I was about to leave the bookstore, I saw a tiny book entitled “12 Little Things Every Filipino Can Do To Help Our Country” by Alexander L. Lacson. As a Filipino citizen, I want to do little things, I want to help my country, my yutang natawhan! read more

First Trip to Indonesia

Our company is engaged in paper, plastic and sticker trading and our main export customer is Indonesia. I am the main contact of these companies, considered not only as customer but also as friends. They have visited us in Manila several times but me never!

But its not too late! Because finally, I am here! Yes I am here in Indonesia. I am actually sitting in one of these companies. They have provided me a table of my own so I can work while I am away from our office. Isn’t it great?

As I just arrived and not visited any place yet, I would like to say I am impressed with their airports. I have been to Jakarta airport and Surabaya airport and both are admirable. Clean. Big. Great interior design. read more

Weekend at Anvaya Cove

Our company bought a land at Anvaya Cove way back 2006. The lot is near the entrance overlooking the beach. I would say, the lot is nicely located, its the best of both worlds – beach and mountain. Great for a weekend getaway (future pa)!

When we were on the way to the clubhouse, I was really amazed on how they developed this place to be so close to nature and built a modern facilities.
