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.

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!

So here it goes, I want to share to all of you:

1. Follow traffic rules. Follow the law.
2. Whenever you buy or pay for anything, always ask for an official receipt.
3. Don’t buy smuggled goods. Buy local. Buy Filipino.
4. When you talk to others, especially foreigners, speak positively about us and our country.
5. Respect your traffic officer, policeman and soldier.
6. Do not litter. Dispose your garbage properly. Segregate. Recycle. Conserve.
7. Support your church.
8. During elections, do your solemn duty.
9. Pay your employees well.
10. Pay your taxes.
11. Adopt a scholar or a poor child.
12. Be a good parent. Teach your kids to follow the law and love our country.

Lets help our country by doing this 12 little things.

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.

I will post some more in the next few days!

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.

Along the beach – weather was not good that time.

I have been invited to go to Anvaya for several times but always declined as I thought it was just too far for the kids. Now with the SCTex, the trip is really worth it.

I can say Subic is still the best weekend getaway near Manila!

Check some great photos taken by CS Mallari for Anvaya Cove.

Blackberry Bold and Me

As a Platinum subscriber of Globe, I got a surprise call from the officer who is handling my account that I am eligible to receive a Blackberry Bold. Oh Great I said! Immediately advised that I will avail of the new phone and after 3 days, I got it delivered in the office.

Getting a Blackberry will incur additional expense on top of my subscription in Globe. The Blackberry Internet Service is Php 450.00 as a non-consumable fixed monthly charge plus 0.15 cents per kilobyte of data sent/received.

This smartphone is packed up with all the office applications you can think of. There are enough reasons to love this phone. What I dont like about this phone is the keypad – its just too small.

But in general, I love this phone. And loving it everyday. Emails delivered in the phone just like in my mail. Now I dont have any reason to say that I am not in the office blah blah. Best is, the mails arrived in my blackberry faster than in my laptop using a pop account.

Buy your own Blackberry phone now! Guaranteed you will love it!
