Faith It till You Make It


"Fake it till you make it" - this was one of the advice given to us by one of our trainers during my IBM days. You see then answering calls (rants most of the time) from foreigners is a seriously tough job, not to mention those calls are always monitored - call flow, accent, grammar - you really have got to fake it till you make it.

Bu then Con sent this today "faith it till you make it". This sounds and feels much better. It's like a promise that no matter what - at the end of it all, (whatever it is that we're experiencing now) everything will be okay. Just know that we will make it till the end.

We just have to keep the faith. Because God never fails.


Faith. Hope. Love.

Quick Post: Everything's Different Now

I know.. it's been a month since I left (let's call it) my comfort zone. The work, my friends, lunch with the boyfriend, his yosi breaks (that I use to quickly rant and rave about stuffs of the day), birthday pantries and out-of-the-blue lunch outs with the team - everything that I'm used to doing for the last 5 years (actually more) of my adult life. Haha! Adult talaga?

Missin' my hunny-lunch-buddy, that's all.

I guess.

I can't help but feel lonely sometimes. Must be the weather. We both love rain.

Okay, I'll stop before it gets all soppy here.

Thank you Con!

These "boys" made me cry!

Here goes my shout out to these guys with their sweet little surprise.

There I was finishing my project (last KristinaB at PC Mall hurrah) and here comes these "boys" with the Red Ribbon cake and this little stuffed toy.

Lessons from Aunt Grace

Nope, not my aunt.

This is actually one of the stories I read from Chicken Soup For the Soul (Woman to Woman Edition). I just loved it so much, I took notes and thought - why not blog it too!

"Bloom where you are planted."

The story is really inspiring. It moves you to do something, not only for others but also for thyself. To nurture the body, the mind and most specially the spirit.

So what are "Aunt Grace's" rules-to-live-by? Here goes: (including an excerpt of how she did them)

Starbucks’ Nutrition by the Cup

I was cleaning our room the other day and found this Starbucks' pamphlet tucked inside one of my journal. I think I grabbed it a few years back - "my little something to read while having coffee"  - but didn’t really get to read just decided to keep instead. Teehee!


Well anyway, I finally gave it a go and checked how much calories a caramel macchiato have - and look:

Reflection for the Day

"You do not know what I am doing, but later you will understand." - John 13:7

Thank You Lord for saving us. <3

Happy Easter! :)

The Love Month - In Progress

Can you believe it, for someone who considers herself to be so loved (and much in-love) - there's no mushy hearts day post and those kind of stuff? -- and the love month's almost over!

Been crazy busy at work these past few weeks (and most free time are spent reading books) there's no time for blogging. I do try to keep my Awesome Notes and BDJ planner/journal updated. So I guess I'd be able to post some stuff - hopefully in the next few days! :)

But for now - back to work. Bleep!

Fun SaturDate - Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Watched Sherlock Holmes - A Game of Shadows.
Last full show at Southmall, Cinema 4 (yep, will now officially start noting the place and cinema # as I really tend to forget them as well).

We're over a month late in watching!
The movie was clever, fun and overall entertaining - the cinema on the other hand is a different story.

Warning: if you haven't watched the movie and you plan to - please stop reading here. Below post might "spoil" the movie for you. This is not necessarily a review, these however, are my take and thoughts about the movie.

Hooray it's Friday!

Thank you Hunny ko for staying up way beyond 12 hours just so you can take me out on a movie date. <3

Chef's bad service. Boo!

Ugh. Waited over 30 minutes for our food.

Spaghetti carbonara, great white pizza and nachos and dips.

Note that the last food served was the nachos. And the place isn't even packed. What's up with that Chef Angelo's at Glorietta 5?


On the brighter side of things - I love that its Friday night, love the view and love the one I'm with. #cheesy
