New Year’s Resolution?

It’s 2009 and I’m making my first post for this year!

Well, as promised of taking things into consideration all the advises I had last year, I manage to agree in having a haircut before the year started. And I’m not sure if it’s the angle or I really look good with short hair (or long!) Lol!

And so, I have a few New Year’s Resolution to tango with this year namely;

1. Eat Good and a well balanced diet. I’ll try to keep balance in both since I usually skip some mealtimes because of too much tiredness as well as not having good food to eat during mealtimes as well.

2. Get a life not just a living. A famous book by a Christian author seems to be the best book to buy for this year to start. I think I have been well overtaken by work that I didn’t find enough time to enjoy life and make the most of what I love to do before. 🙂

3. Blog more than ever before. I need to blog more posts than last year mainly because I need to. Wahaha… This is one avenue that I can spill out the toxicity of my brain cells without hurting myself. LOL!

I guess those 3 will do for now. 🙂

Well, New Year starts today and like every other year, we need to understand that God does give second chances.  I had a lot of mishaps last year for sure but I am not sure if ever I wont have this year but as what Ravi Zacharias, one of my new favorite Christian Author – “My Will Matters…” which basically means, everything that might happen or will happen determines on my own choice on how to react and act wisely in these changing times. Happy New Year everyone!!!

Late Night Stuff…Whew!

It’s the wee hours of the night and I’m still at the office due to some odd reasons. Whew!

I just had a talk earlier with my boss and discussed the possibilities of relocating somewhere in the Metro Manila area. The chat went something like this –

Vir: Ei, Matt, still busy?
Matt: Yes chief,it’s ok…
Vir: uhmmm…got something to tell you.
Matt: What’s that?
Vir: I’m freaking nervous…waaah!
Matt: Come on, spill it out…
Vir: Uhm,I’m planning to relocate in Manila area.

Just to clear it out, the main reason of planning to transfer there is for growth and for my Mama who is staying alone in Manila by herself. And I don’t like it to be that way forever. No one’s close enough to help her out.

Matt: So, when do you plan to move?
Vir: if ever possible, January or February…
Matt: Do you also want to relocate in any of the sites in Manila?
Vir: Yeah! That would be great!
Matt: Let’s talk this Sunday and see our options…
Vir: OK, Sunday then.


It was funny really when Matt asked me if ever I wanted to transfer to any of the sites in Manila. He maybe thought that I had other companies in mind with the transfer. And in doing so, it made it easier for me to transfer in Manila with the same interests and work awaiting.

Although I am not yet certain where I’ll be thrown for work, I’m confident that Matt knows the best area for me to grow. I know there are openings in Tarlac, and it’s quite far from Manila but definitely a good place in terms experience. Besides, I want challenge in my work and getting into a site that will soon to open is a great start!

Until here only…Bye!

A Day at the Office!

I always wanted to have a digital camera and give photography a shot for quite some time. So with all the equating of money, timeline and other payments,I decided to order one from a co-worker. And just today, I got with my new Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W120. Yey!

The first thing that popped to my mind was create another blog about the pictures I’ve taken but the site is still on the construction period. Hehehe… So, what can I do with a cybershot on my hand? I took the liberty to take the pics of my co-workers and just the typical day at the office…

All in A Day’s WOrk…

A new member has joined our Recruitment Team and I’d say he had a really blasting day having to see and experience how we do our daily tasks plus the weird stuff we do the entire day!

I haven’t talk to him but mind you, I was the one who interviewed him for the Associate post and then recommended him for the Specialist post instead.



At last, we have 3 guys in the team and I’d say this will be exciting as all tasks and responsibilities can be proportionately divided by everyone,not to mention we can now have 3 teams comprising of a guy-girl tandem!

At the right side is a sneak peak of the testing area with the 3 guys and a gal. This was taken in the late afternoon before I had an interview with a particular applicant. Hehehe… Can anyone say ” Narcissistic”?


Of course, the day wont end with the entire team having our Wednesday meeting with the updates, the hits and the fun of chatting about what’s about to happen in Cebu, the Duma gods show and the like. At this juncture, The team decided to have the TA Board updated with the new team member and of course, new photographer as well – me!

Thanks for Reading!

A blog about “toxic-tiring-exhausting…”


It’s late and I’m still in the office for a marketing call at 7:30pm. Whew…as usual, this is going to be a long-toxic-tiring-exhausting day for me.

Can you imagine coming in the office before 9:00am and leaving at exactly the same number in the evening ( 9:00pm) ?

Anyway, I am not ranting about something that I hate to do but just because it’s tiring. But does tiring means boring? or not interesting enough to finish? ( hehehe…)

Being a Coordinator, and I’d say a busy one at that makes me realize that part of being promoted is the need to be in the office way pass your schedule. It despises me accept the fact that “workaholic” is a tag line to people like me.

So, what drives a man like me to push for the limits?

If you say pay, I’d say “No…not really.” I am not after the money because I honestly believe I’m paid less compared to the other coordinators from other sites.

If you say benefits, I’d say ” Maybe…sometimes.” Basically because it allows me to practice my intellectual skills in making “fool-proof” (hopefully…) plans for sourcing out applicants but sometimes it breaks my neck sitting the whole day making plans which is not healthy for a cute guy like me. Haha… Feeler!

If you say performance, I’d say “Yes,definitely.” I am a workaholic guy who pushes myself to the limit to have good outputs and be praised for the good things I’ve done ( minus being egoistic). It makes me proud to see activities being completed by my own initiatives.

So, why post it here?

Because I want to express it out after a long day at work…And hopefully, still can project after a day at the office. Hehehe… ( Peace!!!)
