Life’s Tips

22 May

I just want to share this with y’all 🙂

Advice from Somewhere

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

When you say, “I love you,” mean it.

When you say, “I’m sorry,” look the person in the eye.

Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

Believe in love at first sight.

Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.

In disagreements, fight fairly. Please No name calling.

Don’t judge people by their relatives.

Talk slowly but think quickly.

When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?”

Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Say “bless you” when you hear someone sneezes.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

Remember the three R’s:
Respect for self;
Respect for others;
Responsibility for all your actions.

Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Spend some time alone.

This came around anonamously, identified as from a “Chinese Tantra Totem” – One definition of a tantra being a statement of principle or religious practice and collections of such principles and practices. It’s origins are probably from south Asia such as India and may have followed Hinduism and Buddhism and other related belief and practice systems into East Asia including China.
I haven’t verified any origins for these sayings. I don’t think most of them are unique to China or Asia. Certainly some have existed in western culture for a long time. (They are even older than me) Some are probably ancient. Some, such as the ‘smile when answering the phone’ are at least modern variations if not actually recent. But they sound good. If you live this way life will seem happy.


Bum No More! :)

15 May

Oh yes, I am a bum-no-more-gal! 🙂 Last Thursday, I started my employment with the no. 1 strongest bank worldwide (makes me proud.. ^^.). The first two days were reserved for the New-hires induction. We had a meet-and-greet with the big bosses and learned tons of things about the bank. I met new people who are very nice and all excited to learn and work.

I’ve been working for more than four years now and with all honesty, with this Company, I see myself setting my mid-term and long-term goals. I know I have a very looooong way to go, but I want to get somewhere this time. I want to prove that with hard-work, and faith in Him- everything is possible! For now, I want to concentrate on the tasks I am assigned with, I want to learn different things, nail ’em and BE HAPPY at the same time! (please cross your fingers for me) ^^.

What’s MOST interesting with this new job? hmmmmm it’s very far from home… haha! 🙂 Before, I could just drive from home to work for just 30 minutes but now, Quezon City (home) to Taguig (my new office) is a big “WHAT!?” for some but not for me. Yes, I find it very challenging especially when taking our Public Transportation system to get to work and back home. I’m the worst person on Earth when it comes to directions and places and I thank my Ate Mavic for being my how-to-get-there mentor. 🙂 I will probably bring our car at times but not everyday… with high oil prices, and heavy traffic along C5, bringing a car is not a smart idea. (I need to find some ways to save money.. wow!) haha! 🙂

I can do this! ^^.

Lord, thank you for all the blessings! Please continue to guide and guard me. I’ll see You later!:)

Have a fab Sunday people! 🙂

La Union is LOVE :)

1 May

Just got back from my 4-day vacay in La Union. It was fun, real fun! I was able to discern about a lot of things and realized that there are things to be grateful and thankful for.Yes, some things happen unexpectedly, and they may bring us pains but in the end, we would have realizations that God really has better plans for all of us.

When I was in La Union, everyday was a blissful one for me, realizations and acceptance were filling me in. There was a day when I realized how lucky and blessed I am for having a loving family and relatives, and TRUE friends who will never ever leave my side (through joys and sorrows).

I know God has better plans for me. He gives me a lot of wonderful people who never stop believing and caring for me. So I really have tons of reasons to be thankful and grateful everyday.

I remember the text message I got from TL Lisette (one of my true friends who never stops caring for me) “Be strong Jam, it may not make any sense today, but in the future you’d know why things had to end…” well I guess She’s right!

Lord, thank You for guiding and guarding me. I have failed you for soooo many times but you never leave my side. I’m leaving everything up to You… 🙂 I love you! :-*

La Union, you became a refuge to me… 🙂 Thank YOU LU! ^^.

I captured over 540 photos during the trip and uploaded them via Multiply. Sorry, but the albums are set to “Contacts” only, so feel free to add me up (I will only accept invites from the people I personally know though..) Here are some of the photos 🙂
