better luck next time

I’m starting off this post with a quote: “Always too soon to quit. Never too late to start.” – Anonymous If there is one thing I would like to say to my younger brother today, it would be that quote. It is indeed never too late to start again more intelligently . The results of the November 2008 Philippine Nursing Licensure Exam was already released by PRC last Friday, February 20, 2009. Sadly, brother’s name didn’t make it to the list of those who passed the said examination. I have been praying to God that he would make it to the list but I guess I didn’t pray hard enough. Brother didn’t pray harder enough. I guess he also needs to work his ass off in order to achieve his goal of adding the title “RN” after his name. You see it’s not just prayers. And it’s not just luck. Diligence. Patience. Sacrifice. Hardwork. Along with a strong faith in God and His kindness, these are also the qualities that would help a man get to his goal. God helps those who also help themselves. So to my

that's my brother!

(Just a short but funny recollection of brother McAldz. This happened years ago but everytime I would remember about this, still puts the same smile on my face. :-)) Back then, our eldest brother didn't know much about Internet and stuff. The first time he was introduced to the Friendster network, he was very happy and sent SMS to everybody he knows with this message " Please add me - jules@yahoo.com , password 'bryant' ". You have guessed it right, the next lesson we gave him was how to change his password. Hehehe

A Message of Thanks

Image
I could’ve written about this sooner but I’m still waiting for the pictures to get downloaded to the computer. We got this package at the Mandaue Central Post Office last Friday. Wow, it’s for our little princess Diane Pauline ! (Yes, we decided to name her Diane Pauline as Shan had earlier suggested since my sister Jemimah also suggested the same.) Thank you, Cathy , Jordan and Rome for being so sweet and thoughtful. Thanks for the nice message on the card, too. Thanks also to the Mandaue Central Post Office for rendering an honest service. We only had to pay thirty-five pesos for the customs fee. I heard about some horrible stories about packages not getting to the supposed recipient. In fact, it’s been almost three months since my hubby’s sister sent a package from Norway to their parents in Talisay via registered mail but the package was unheard of until now. His sister might have to file a complaint for this. Whew! I wonder what’s wrong with the world today.

A Valentine's Dinner at Max’s

Image
Like I mentioned in my previous post, it’s been a rainy day in Cebu. Not good for celebrating Valentine’s Day elsewhere. We thought we should be staying in the house but we realized we needed to buy my pre-natal vitamins and to pay our electric bill. So we had no choice but to get out of our cage and take care of these itineraries. After taking care of these things, we simply decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day by having a dinner date at Max’s restaurant. This is our favorite restaurant, by the way. I think I have eaten too much again. Guilty as charged. LOL. I even enjoyed drinking a glass of iced tea but I don’t think it will do any harm to my princess inside my womb. Please, it’s just a glass of iced tea hehehe. It was a Happy Valentine’s Day for the three of us. Happy Valentine’s Day to all my friends!

the weather in cebu

I woke up with my husband still sleeping soundly in bed. I just realized it's Valentine's Day! It's a rainy morning. Makes me want to go back to bed but I guess I've had enough sleep already that I decided to open the computer and do a little surfing. While I'm at it, I'm thinking, or should I say daydreaming, if we were to live anywhere in America today, which state would that be? We do have relatives living in New Jersey but I guess it would be a wonderful experience to live in Arizona, particularly in Scottsdale. For the record, I just learned that they've experienced their warmest weather this year. At 80 degrees, I think I would love to be in Arizona to experience their warm winter. Also, if I may add, if anyone is thinking of relocating or retiring anywhere in the U.S., why don't you check out the White Mountain Vacation Club (courtesy of SFP)?

Life's A Constant Change

This is what moving on is all about. Officemates are saying goodbye to one another. Thanks to our colleague Lloyd for this video. And thanks to Jose Mari Chan for songs like this. Got me teary-eyed. Goodbye, everyone. See you around the next bend. Constant Change (by Jose Mari Chan) We're on the road We move from place to place And oftentimes when I'm about to call it home We'd have to move along Life is a constant change... The friends we know we meet along the way Too soon the times we share form part of yesterday 'Cause life's a constant change And nothing stays the same, oh no Clouds that move across the skies Are changing form before our very eyes Why couldn't we keep time from movin' on? Hold on to all the years before this moment's gone? Why must we live the days at such a frightening pace? We're all like clouds that move across the skies And changing form before our very eyes Have we outgrown our Peter Pans and wings? We've simpl
