i.READ... :)

Sunday, June 6, 2010

..Last Wednesday, i have to travel to Region 2 (Tuguegarao Area) because we have our machine installation the next day in Ballesteros, Cagayan... and bein' the Product and Applications Specialist, i should always be present on those kind of installations since i'm the one who gives the in-depth knowledge and hands on training on how to use the machine properly and how to interpret the results... so even though Ballesteros is really far, far away from home and that it's actually near Aparri already, i really can't complain because that's all part of my work... and mind you guys, i heard another doctor will purchase the same machine in the Mountain Province area... oh come on, gawd! good luck to me on traveling to those far away areas... :(

..Thursday came... and since I am now in Tuguegarao, it's the sales rep's duty to accompany and drive me goin' to Ballesteros, Cagayan... so at least now I am indeed a passenger..yhay! :) while heading to the said place and nothing to do but just sit and be a passenger... i grabbed the books that was located on the front's  compartment. And one book caught my attention when I saw its title : How to Turn Thoughts into Things by Bo Sanchez... And since I'm bored of not doin' anything, so while we are traveling I started reading the book to see if it's worth reading... just by reading 3-5 pages, i was hooked up to continue reading until I finally have finished 5 chapters and ended there for the mean time, since we already arrived on our destination.  
..I've been very busy that day so no time for me to read again the book. And after we finished at around 4pm, we again traveled back to Tuguegarao.. We had our dinner at Tuguegarao and then from there i need to travel back to Pampanga, since I have an appointment after lunch the next day... I've reached Pampanga around 7am and took a nap for a while then woke up around 10am to prep myself for my appointment that afternoon.
..I just continued reading the book Saturday morning (yesterday) and finished reading by that day.... and to tell you, the book is really worth reading and I highly recommend it to you, my dear readers... :)

                           ..you can actually read this book in one sitting... :)

.. I want to share some infos that you would see when you finally read the book.

You can't be successful in life without these two essential things: Giftedness and godliness.
Giftedness is the ability to turn into things.
Godliness is the ability to use that giftedness to serve.
Giftedness is like God in His skills.
Godliness is being like God in His service.
Giftedness is being like God in His power.
Godliness is being like God in His love.
Giftedness is charisma. Godliness is character.
Take Note: You can be successful with giftedness alone, but success will be short-lived and isolated in one or two areas of your life. For real success that spans your whole life, you need giftedness and godliness.

To be successful, follow the Operating System... and the Operating System of the Universe is the Law of the Harvest.
..The Law of the Harvest states that: What you plant, you harvest. What you don't plant, you don't harvest. The more you plant, the more you harvest. The less you plant, the less you harvest.
In relation to the Bible... 2 Corinthians 9:6 - Remember this saying "A few seeds make a small harvest, but a lot of seeds make a big harvest."

..Make a decision now to plant today what you want to harvest tomorrow... =) there's indeed a season for planting and a season for harvesting. Plant, plant, plant and you'll soon harvest...
..And even if you see no results, keep planting. Don't give up. Believe that harvest is coming. =)

..Plant in the Right environment. The Law of the Harvest says, "What you plant, you harvest." But hidden in this Law is the need to plant your seeds in the right environmental conditions: good sunlight and abundant water.  If you plant the right seeds at the wrong environment, there will still be no harvest. What is the right environment? FAITH...
..You need to plant your seeds with a blessing mindset. Faith is the water and sunlight of your seeds. What is the blessing mindset? That no matter what happens, you expect to be blessed. That you expect good things to happen to you. If you want to be blessed you have to expect to be blessed. You have to expect the harvest.

..These things were just some of the infos I want to stressed out to you dear readers. I tell you read the book, for us to turn those THOUGHTS into THINGS.

Remember J-boy's famous line: THOUGHTS.BECOME.THINGS. Only and Through God. =)  i certainly agree!!! ^_^

i.READ =)
           ..seriously reading and absorbing everything from the book, yhay! =)

..And oh btw, i also recommend to you my dear readers this book as well...

..Only those who SEE their dream are able to SEIZE their dream... Always remember that... =)

..May our dreams come true in His perfect time.... ^_^  God bless us all....

..i call it 'derma marathon'

Saturday, May 29, 2010

..my derma marathon started today!!! yicks... i think i need to be numb for me not to feel the pain... even though Dra. Madge applied anesthesia on my face, still i can feel the pain... oh btw, i'm talking about the "derm roller and stretching procedure" and those were the things i call 'derma marathon'... oh crap, very expensive procedure indeed but i really badly need it... 'sigh'

..need to get rid of this pimple mark/s on my left cheek.... pls, pls GO AWAY!!!

..yes, yes, yes... this was the pimple mark noticed by the RBA employer... :( the one on my left cheek area! :( that's me when i don't have any make up on my face at all.....pale, pale,pale! good morning everyone! :)

..indeed, a Flight Attendant hopeful should have a clear (oh sooo clear) face... tsk tsk... :( why am i not blessed with a zit-free face??? :( why is it that when i have zit/s, it will leave me a brown mark/spot on my face??? haaayyyyy.. :(

..i decided to have my derma procedure/treatment done by Dra. Majella Arenas of Xensiderm.. :) very nice and supportive dermatologist... i recommend her to you guys... :)

 ..Dra Madge just finished applying anesthesia here... need to wait for 30 minutes for the anesthesia to take effect... :)

 ..i look so serious here??? deep inside i'm praying 'coz i'm so damn nervous with the procedure... saw the fine needles that will roll my face then.... crappy! :-(

..this shots were during the actual procedure... oh gawd, eventhough there's anesthesia, still i felt the pain... terribly painful... :-( sorry for these pictures, yeah i know..bloody...gross ryt?.. yick!

..procedure done! i SURVIVED the first session... yhay! five more sessions to go on the coming weeks... :)

 ..bought these things after... will be needing these sunblock and hypo soap, as well as the other solutions given by YSA Skin Care as recommended by Dra Madge... =)

..for me, i'll take my RBA experience as a "challenge".... :)  if i'm not meant for RBA, then i think and i believe i deserve something much better than that... :) Nothing is impossible with God... :)

..and to tell you, i had a very important message today from God in my FB account...
                   On this day, God wants you know....that there is a time and a season for everything. It may be a time of new beginnings, a time of growth, a time of reaping the harvest of hard work, or a time of rest. Trust this beautiful order. Everything in its time. =)

..perfect timing right?.. :) and i take this message as a SIGN... :) yhay!!! :)

..May God bless us all... :)

LORD, when i lose hope because my plans have come to nothing, help me to remember that Your LOVE is always greater than my disappointments and Your PLANS for my life are always BETTER than my DREAMS... Amen

^_^ (patiently waiting...)

..my RBA experience

As seen in my previous post, I thought I wasn’t included in the shortlisted candidates for Royal Brunei Airlines… but to my surprise, I received a text message from PERT agency last Tuesday (May 25) at around 9PM informing me to report the next day at 8am in Pan Pacific Hotel for an employer interview. Oh gawd, very very late notice… I was in Baguio then..:(

The next day 8am, I registered my name in the attendance sheet… I reviewed Melissa’s handouts which was given to them the other day, because they said that the exam that will be given during that day would be all about RBA and “geography” stuff… :D haha, goodluck right!?! :D
When the employer came ( I think they were 5 if I remember it right)..they took our height and weight one by one… some who didn’t meet the said height requirement (minimum height btw is 5’3.5”) were told right there and then that “I’m sorry you can’t continue, thanks for trying”…

..And there my turn came, I’m really fortunate enough that I've reached their height requirement… =)

Second stage : 2 sets of exam ( 1st – English/grammar test and 2nd – Geography)… the 1st test was just easy, but the second test I find it hard ‘coz I wasn’t able to review much on the handouts given to them... I just scanned Melissa’s handouts when I reached the hotel… (oh btw, thanks mhel for your handouts…)
After the exam, we were grouped in two… the first batch will stay for their Final interview with the employer.. the second batch were informed to be back at 1:30PM or after lunch… and I belong to the second batch.. =)

When my turn was called… there were 2 ladies in the room (one is currently a cabin crew of RBA)… they asked me of my name and the lady who’s a cabin crew noticed my pimple scar on my left cheek which was really visible at that time… I was instructed to go near her so that she can see it clearly… and the lady asked if where did I get it and if I’m undergoing some derma procedure… and I answered honestly and said “YES” and I’m undergoing some derma procedures right now… and there she told me if how many weeks/months would I need for it to be removed and I again answered “a month for me to complete the whole 6 sessions”… and they talked in another language which I can't understand what they were saying or discussing to each other… after which, the lady cabin crew told me to be back at the agency after a month and they will check again for my face if the pimple scar is already totally gone… and there, they didn’t anymore continue the interview part, and just advised me to call the PERT agency and be back after a month when I finished my derma sessions… I said thank you to them and told them that I’ll be back after a month ‘coz I really want to be a cabin crew for RBA… and the lady cabin crew said with matching a thumbs up sign on her hand “I like your attitude and your motivation..be back after a month”…
Whew! and that was it… the end of my conversation with them… So when I came out of the room, I informed Ma’am Cherry of PERT of what the employer have said.. and she said, okay will just take note of that and she smiled and said be back after a month…
That was it… On my way to the car, I told my dad who assisted me to Pan Pacific Hotel of the whole conversation I had with the employer… and he said, “sige tapusin mo na yung pagpapaderma mo, malay mo naman totoo talaga sinasabe nila na bumalik ka after a month” and “kung hindi man totoo yun marami pang ibang airlines dyan.. may First Champion ka pa db?”.. So there, I remembered again my First Champion (Saudia) thingy… and that one I’m really eyeing to…

And I asked my dad that before we go home, I need to see Dra Madge to inform her of my RBA experience.. I’m glad she understood me very well, and is really willing to help me to finally achieve a clearer face faster, and get rid of that pimple mark left on my left cheek. And so the “derma marathon” will start this Saturday and I need to see her “WEEKLY” for a faster result… grabeee, sakit sa bulsa nito.. go, go, go sa pagpapaganda talaga for that dream job!!! =)

To tell you guys, I’m a bit depressed actually because I wasn’t able to reach the “real interview part” with the employer that day… but because I am "Ms. Brightside", I don’t want to entertatin those bad vibes and I just want to focus on the part that they want me to be back after a month… yeah, in a sense it may be absurd but I am going to try it.. that’s how determined and motivated I am to be a cabin crew… malay natin totoo sinasabe ng RBA db?.. and it’s also one way of improving myself better na rin para next time, clear of pimple mark/s na ang aking face…:)

And now, I’d like to leave you with this verse. Just for us to be reminded again.. =)
             .."For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~Jeremiah 29:11

A Quick Update

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Since I knew from PEX that there were girls who already received a text message from PERT last Friday, I called the agency just this afternoon to follow up and confirm the status of my application. The reason why I called is because my phones have no signal from the day the girls received a text from PERT which is Friday, ‘til Saturday because I am in Morong, Bataan attending our company’s summer outing. 
Sad to say, I’m not included on the shortlisted candidates who will be having their Final Interview on May 24, 2010… :( So there you go, this is again another thing to be sad about.. From love life depression and now, career depression… oh crap!  :( sad, sad, sad….(grabe na'to ha, super malas ko naman ata these days...huhu)
For those who were so lucky to receive a text from PERT… Good luck to you ladies. How I wish I’m part of those shortlisted candidates…  
Anyways, that’s life… Life goes on… God bless everyone! And may the good Lord bless me as well… :)

Hoping that we will all achieve our dream of flying soon, in His time… :)

my tearjerker song for now! :(

Monday, May 10, 2010

my fave song for this time... when i watched the music video just this morning, i cried especially on the last few scenes/part of the video... sadly, i missed everything about you! :(

love its lyrics: But I never told you what I should HAVE SAID.. No I never told you I just HELD IT IN... And now I miss everything about you!!! :(

sorry for the emo-fied me! super depressed mode lang ako right now... i just can't keep it to myself.... this is something related to my previous post... and yes, a vision that me and my bes are just 'friends'... :( i've been crying for days now, and the feeling is a total hell... i just can't believe na para akong nawalan ng bf... para ngang mas matindi pa dun yung sakit eh... :( now i realized how i value my bes na mukha ngang mahal ko na siya... but i know its too late na! wala na siya, he found someone new, and super sakit sa part ko... and the girl ni hindi ko man kilala 'til now... nagseselos, natapakan ang ego/pride ko... ganun yung nararamdaman ko right now.... whew! :(
day 1 of me keeping distance from him started yesterday..super hirap! and hopefully super kayanin ko talaga...

**sorry guys for bein' sooo emofied right now... just bear with me nalang.... and please do pray for me as well...

The "Complicated" Thingy in my FB account

Saturday, April 17, 2010

..just this week I changed my status profile form single to “it’s complicated”…and most of my friends were asking me to tell them the whole story… so for those who know this blog site, I’m going to share it to you… :)
..reviewing on my previous post, I broke up with my bf last December ‘coz he’s really against my FA dream… and because I am single right now, I am open to dating…  My bestfriend who happened to be a guy, was there for me, cheered me up when I’m down and supported me in reaching my FA dream..  actually, even the little things in me, he knows a lot… and I’m happy that he knows me very well… oh well to cut it short, he told his feelings already about me… and of course, when I found out I was shocked…but I’m happy in a way ‘coz if he’ll be my boyfie, I’m pretty sure that I’m in safe hands, he’s a faithful guy I know that and the fact that I’m comfortable bein’ with him and I trust him a lot…
sooo where’s the complicated part?..  my parents like my ex over him, especially my mom… she’s pro ex.. as in! the reason why?.. kasi daw si “ex” financially stable and hindi nako magpapakahirap magwork pa… mas secured daw future ko with my ex.. I know that my mom is just thinking of my future…  she only likes my “bes” as my bestfriend… and nothing more than that..  my bestfriend is just like me working also in a diagnostic company but he is a Product Manager by the way… even the college friend which I happened to introduce  to my mom, ayaw din nia para sakin…negative din sa kanya.. haayyyy… :(
until now, my ex is trying to win me back, and he’s kinda seeking the help of my parents…. Pero ayaw nia talaga na mag-FA ako which I don’t get to understand his reasons… hindi nia maintindihan na yun ang gusto ko at dream na dream ko… kaya naiinis ako!
I like to obey my parents pero sa pagkakataon na’to parang hindi ko na ata kayang makipagbalikan kay ‘ex’ at isuko nalang basta basta ang FA dream ko… and iniisip ko din pano na bestfriend ko…  
So ‘til now, im still weighing things… me and my bestfriend are still best of friends.. and I don’t know yet if we’ll be together as “bf-gf” someday… the decision is all in me.. to choose between my ex or my bes is one of the decisions i have to face right now.. and still undecided…
so guys, what do you think??? I’ll be happy to know your opinions… 
with bes @ rali's grill subic                                                                                   

bes & his pamangkin (he's super duper  fond of kids)
