My bestfriend

I feel so blessed and happy today because of a very special reason...I was able to talk to one of my bestfriends . His name is Raymund Louie Rapadas now living and working in Saudi Arabia. I am glad that we had a blissful and enjoying moments when we were together, more than enough to make my day bright when I remember meaningful days in the Philippines.

I met him while working at the Intellectual Property Office in year 1999 month of July. I remembered, I started working one week ahead of him but since we were both in Accounting department, we became close friends. He was my witness to every failures and successes in life I had…and I will say that I became his witness too in his progress and career development in life. At first, there was situation that was confusing about him but thankfully that he made it cleared about it and with that, I understand him more.

I admire him in many ways. He is indeed a true friend and he proved that many times to me. Sometimes, we differed in beliefs, methodology and approach in life but the respect , appreciation and consideration being a friend binded us together. Being honest with one another to situations beating us down make us way to help eachother more in facing difficulties and challenges.

I remember that in m y life, I made wrong decisions…wrong decisions . With care and concern, he was there fervently and frankly expressing his thoughts . If he thinks that I am wrong, then I am wrong and he will insist it letting me know that I am very wrong. With these, I had the chance of reevaluating things and make it right. Sometimes, I am hardheaded that it took long period of time for me to realize his food for thoughts. It feels funny to remember those things now because I became stubborn many times and with those situations, he straightened me up many times too.

I am very thankful to him. He stayed by me in happy and tearful moments. He became my light when the sun is nowhere to be found. I am very proud of my friend.

More about him, he is very successful in his career now. He has a stable big earning job somewhere in Saudi Arabia. He said that this December, he is planning to have a vacation in the Philippines. I just hope and pray that one day, we will meet again together with my dear friends in the Intellectual Property Philippines. I Love and miss you my friend.

Dental Care

Dental care is very important aspect of life. It should be taken cared of the same way we treated our physical health. Attention for dental is necessary for all ages…young and old because it leads you to a healthier and happy life.

In my earlier part of life, I ignore the importance of a healthy teeth. That means that I went to the Dentist just sometime when it was in need. Those times were when I can’t bear and tolerate the pain anymore. Unfortunately, the damage has been done and I was very late for choices or possibilities of recovering some of my teeth. Had it not been for my neglect and laxness, I still have my complete healthy white teeth.

Cleaning through brushing, regular use of dental floss and antiseptic mouth rinse will help a lot but it is not enough and it is not as efficient of having a regular dental check up.

Concerning dental health, Dentist Katy Texas or Welch Dental Group can help you. They accept large number of insurance plans, accepts kids as little as 3 years old for check up and offers very competitive fees. If you are Spanish-speaking, they have staffs to translate it for you. They provide treatment for most of your dental needs and when it comes to the quality of services, you don’t have to worry because their team has almost one hundred years of combined dental experience with a state-of-the-art-facility. They are all committed to providing patients with the best smile possible.

Food for thought for the Day

"For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible,...everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him. Colosians 1:16"

I like this verse for today. It helped me understand my purpose of being here on this earth...its not about me but all about Him. Accourding to Rick Warren in his book Purpose Driven Life, The purpose of your life is greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It is far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God. You were born by His purpose and for His purpose.

The search for the purpose of life has puzzled people for thousand of years. That is because we typically begin at the wrong starting point-ourselves. WE ask self-centered questions like what I watn to be? What should I do with my life? What are my goals, my ambitions, my dreams for my future? But focusing on ourselves will never reveal our lifes purpose. The Bible says, "It is God who directs the lives of His creatures; everyones life is in His power"

I am very happy to know that God is in control of our lives. With that, we are safe and surely in good hands.

Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood

I became a regular viewer of the new show Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood. At first, I was interested just to know more about the life of Tori Spelling because I am a fan of her before but the moment I watched their show, I was inspired by the love they had as a family, as husband and wife. They had an extraordinary, sweet and happy life together. I admire them a lot because their family is their priority, that even they are both busy with businesses, social activities and the like, they managed their lives cheerfully with so much affection, commitment, respect and love. I just hope that the love they have right now as a family stays forever.

Alloy Steel is a trusted material

My mother-in-law gave me a tour in a private lake here in Nebraska. It was so beautiful. I admire the lake so much. The surroundings are just amazing because it is maintained by the people living there. You feel relax and fresh just by enjoying the spectacular view of the water and the environment. Surrounding the lake are gorgeous and big houses in different designs. My mom said that it was Millionaires place. We took time admiring the houses and from there, I had the thinking of how technology changed a lot of things. Before, it took forever constructing a house or a building but today, you can have what you want quickly with quality and best results.

With all of these advancements, there are many components to give credit to. They played an important role in having a strong, high quality buildings and houses. One of the components I will give focus is the Alloy Steel. If you decide to have a house or a building with a steel structure, alloy steel will just be anywhere and it is a good decision. It makes the structure very strong and secure.

Second Coming of Christ

If you will notice, my Bible verse for today is found in Revelation 21:2-4. It says, “I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

It is about the second coming of Christ. Many of us are waiting for this big event and I hope soon. Situations here on earth are becoming dreadful and its good to be in Heaven because in the verse it says, "There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order things has passed away". Amazing isn't it and for that I want Him to come soon. Let us all be ready all the time so that when he comes, surely we will be with Him in Heaven.

Make Maxpedition your partner

Summer is the best time to go out for outdoor activities. It is the best season to go out for camping, mountain and rock climbing or rafting and the like with family and friends. When I was in the Philippines, I was a member of a backpacking organization. We went out mountain climbing during holidays and vacation time. It was fun and enjoying but was not simple when it comes to preparation of things. Actually we had a workshop and seminar in backpacking because it plays an important role to make the activity more easy and enjoying. One of the significant considerations is choosing the highest quality materials when it comes to buying of backpacks or other things you need for outdoor activities. And for that, Maxpedition is the outstanding gear you need. They are well known of fabricating hard-use military specification nylon gear with variety of designs and in highest quality of materials. Maxpedition has become self-demanding because of its growth in international reputation. You can expect the best from them.

TV Programs

As of the moment, I am watching "My Redneck Wedding". It was so funny that my husband laughs so loud. The time is 1:11 a.m. and we need to go to bed soon. A little bit earlier, we were watching "Ice Road Truckers" in Alaska and it was amazing to see the rivers/lakes or ocean converted into a road. The drivers were so skillful that they can manage to drive the icy and dangerous road going to other parts of Alaska.

We became interested watching the "Deadliest Catch" too. It was situated still in Alaska and it was amazing to see the catching of king crabs...

Ira Riklis, the Producer

I just finished watching the trailer of the movie Lemon Tree and I find it so interesting. It was produced outstandingly and for sure will captivate and touch the hearts of the people. After seeing it, I invited my husband to see the trailer once again and he finds it so amazing. We don’t know of where we can get a copy of the Lemon tree, we don’t have an idea of when it was made but one thing we are sure we will going to get a copy of it. It was heartbreaking but impressive. Thanks to Ira Riklis, the co-producer of the Lemon Tree for sharing with us through a movie the bravery of the Palestinian widow who defended her Lemon Tree Field against the threats of tearing it down.

For more information about Ira Riklis, He is the principal of the Sutherland Capital Management, Inc. involved in the home-security market based in New York City. He is the chairman of C.O.P.S. Monitoring, a company that provides alarm monitoring services to more than 3,100 independent alarm dealers. He has invested in many companies that make him so successful that gave him ways to help and support the Tel Aviv Foundation providing schools for kids. Like the foundation, Ira Riklis is responsive and purposeful in making the future better for everyone.

Drivers License

Finally, after failing three times, I passed and got my Drivers License. Thanks to my Mother-in-Law. She was the one who inspired me and pushed me to be able to have the Drivers License. It was not easy actually. Everytime, I was tested, I felt so nervous. Things are just different here in US but I appreciate it a lot.

The the other day, It was Friday when I went out of the house driving alone. I will never forget the feeling. I felt nervous but I believe it was a normal feeling for every first timer. I went to the house of Ate Melfa. We went out for a walk that afternoon in Homes Lake. It was fun and a great day for me.

Online Survey will help you!

I had a work experience for almost 12 years. I started working part time in a family owned business when I was in second year college and then shifted my career working in Asian Bank after my graduation. In year 1999, I became interested to work in a government office so I tried submitting applications to government agencies. I was accepted right away and was given a stable and good earning job. With the happy and helping atmosphere in that office, I became an employee for almost nine years. If I would not have moved here in US, I am employed still in this company.

My work focused on Accounting areas and with that, you will know informations on many things. I remembered that our office started just from around one hundred employees but now it became 300 almost. And from there, we encountered difficulties in managing the office. One of the management strategies was hiring expert individuals teaching and sharing us techniques and ways to ensure that services are served with quality and commitment. It was a big help but I remembered that the cost of hiring expert people were so expensive. There are many areas in our office that need help and so they have to hire different individuals to give a solution to it and with that, it has a corresponding fee that makes it very costly.
Online Survey gave me insights on Employee Performance Management aiming to give customer satisfaction at lost cost. It was amazing and very interesting to know because you can save so many things. Well the first one is that you can save money because they gave an overall excellent business management package. Second, you can save time because they give clear, precise and working ideas to make your business successful. Third, you can save effort because they have friendly support team that will assist and help you in any way they can and many more…
