A dream come true and more

When I graduated college, I told myself I will search for a job that is meant for communication arts. It’s not easy as i thought it would be, but it didn’t hinder me to spot a great one.
I remember back then, with help of a great friend and a mentor, Jojo Terencio (former writer of President Fidel V. Ramos, not to forget the other outstanding politicians he worked with and now an executive in an International Company) he asked me if I want a glimpse of the Senate. I said yes in a jiffy ๐Ÿ™‚

That on-the-job training under the media office of Senate of the Philippines really opened a lot doors for me. I am travelling from Fairview to Senate (Manila, near Mall of Asia) every single day in public transportation. I am so determined and inspired from everything I see and learn from the Senate until I scored a job under the office of Senator Villar. Although I was torn between due to an offer in a Global network that will train me to be a news correspondent (thanks to Peachie Urquiola, a good friend and executive staff of Sen. Gringo Honasan)

Jojo Terencio & Peachie U

Itโ€™s hard to decide, both offer is great. I opted to work at the government. I was thankful for my wonderful friends, Jojo and Peachie who helped me from where I start.
I enjoyed the world of Politics and if youโ€™ll read my previous blogs, you will perhaps remember how happy I am in every adventure I had while working for a Senator.

With my first Boss, ever- Senator Manny Villar

Moving on, just last year, I decided to join corporate world in a multinational company. There are so many things to learn and I am always going for professional growth. I want to know my limitsโ€ฆ
I became a Public Relation Executive at the age of 25. It was all hard work and a lot of trials that really tested me both professional and not-so-professional terms.

In an event at the company with Executives, (sorry I look like a drunken master LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

Corporate Affairs Family

On the other hand, it was also the time I first saw my name in a corporate magazine! It was awesome.

One of the magazines, I have my name with ๐Ÿ™‚

After all the drama and stuff, I just can simply look at it and remember the good times I had while writing those stories. Even the interview with the executives in the company for internal viewing made me feel so good as it was my first time to feel like a news reporter.

unforgettable MIC ๐Ÿ™‚ my bestfriend in covering an event!

All this started from a dream and an inspiration. I am truly blessed for having all these opportunity and from loving friends who believed in me, my mentors (Jojo Terencio, Roy Mabasa, Peach Urquiola, Bryan Edang, Judith Sto. Domingo) same goes with my family that supporter me all the way! My husband and my best friend, Mylene and Amiel. They are my top cheerers!
Now, as I embrace the world of a full time housewife and a part time writer, all for the best in next adventure I am up to that will make me a buy another designer bag, just kidding!

Make all your dreams come true, impossible is nothing. Learn and master the craft, be passionate, have faith, be prepared and never lose yourself.


Bowling Night

"Do you have the Balls?"

It’s been a long time since I played Bowling and not so-serious-pa! ๐Ÿ™‚ So, when our office had a night out last Saturday… I am pretty excited since “Bowling” sounds refreshing!

I didn’t know I need to bring socks so I bought one at the nearest shop, I forgot the name of Bowling Center but it was nice with billiards game on the side.

I also learned that my bowling shoe size is 7 ๐Ÿ™‚ sometimes I have different shoe sizes from 7 to 9! weird huh?! ๐Ÿ™‚ depends on the brand or where it is made.

"So how do you love my shoe? :)"

Moving on I think I had beginners luck since I hit 2 strikes in a row… there’s a technique in this game as long as you set your mind to it with proper posture. I think I can play bowling once in a while ๐Ÿ™‚ I had a great time.

"I can do it as long as the ball is Pink ;)"

With Vistaland Residences Wil & Madison Team

Thank you to Ms. Eda Tambologan & Ms. Juvi A.

I am just a geek in Christian Louboutin with shades of MAC.

How many of us like someone who is geeky enough? If you have other definition of a geeky person, by all means enlighten me but for now I will confess to you how geeky I am in some ways โ™ฅ

In School

Although I am not the type of an “A” straight student… Butย  I am super active in school organizations since grade school. I love humanitarianism! I find it fulfilling.

I also love leading a team that’s why most of the time I got Presidential seats ๐Ÿ™‚ My first experience to be a President in a classroom was when I am in 4th Grade.

I love challenging my self, I love competing that’s why in 3rd Grade I already competed in an Art Competition!

My interests are random but mostly I love Quiz Bee’s, Art Competition (Abstract Division), Writing Short Stories, Slogans and even joined Ms. United Nations in 5th Grade… I was Ms. Italy back then. err.

I am always in Top 10 but never reached top 1! Math destroys me. ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s why not a straight “A” student.

M A T H! how can i ever forget you when you ruined my transcript! then in Summer class I aced 4.5 for you… tiny points to have a perfect 5! (5 is the highest)

Anyway, I had a roller coaster geeky ride during my school days how looser I am with those dorky hair style, poor skin at times and not so good socks! But then during my grade school years… my notebook is already United Colors of Benetton. First met DKNY in 4th grade then maintained the brand-whore style like forever.

Revlon? Lipstick! 6th grade my teacher was so furious! Chanel? yep my nails were covered with those yummy colors… Hello Mr. Principal. Not to forget when red hair rocks… Highschool? yeah I love Highschool! But then never did I experienced detention room. I just turned things back to normal the next day, like the color of my hair. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good times! Good times!

So, Now I am already in Professional World… I am still a geek! Loves to read American Literature, Mozart to Bob Arci pieces and all those classy jazz artist. Nick Joaquin, Pablo Neruda, Allan Edgar Poe, Andy Warhol, Art of War, Obama-rama and a lot more. It’s like I am an Old Soul or what!

So you think you’ll love my interests? I still love to paint, colour, pick up flowers, stargazing, talking to strangers etc.

As for Celebrities… I love Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and I love Queen Rania, Ivanka Trump and other high profile peeps who manage to stay pretty and brainy at the same time.

In Movies… I can watch anything but hardly Sci-fi it annoyes me how fake those special fx it has. eww.

Sports… I love badminton and hitting the gym but I am more active in a scrabble game or word factory! I can even beat you in a Millionairesย  Game Board or Visionary.

I am a boring person (I like boring things) who can’t live without her Ipod! โ™ฅ

but hell yah… I have a good humor even sometimes it turned out to be sarcastic. LOL

I love working in Politics…

with my Boss ๐Ÿ™‚ Senator Manny Villar

and look who’s with me at the picture below!

Senator Bongbong Marcos

I love Marcoses, but not the Martial Law.

Political World is a circus but I am proud to participate in 2010 election. So now I am about to step in a new geeky techie world in business… again,ย  I am just a geek in Christian Louboutin with shades of MAC.

Me and my work

At Senate President Office (My Boss' Villar's term)

I must say, Election 2010 is the busiest days of my life… especially right now we are down to 2 weeks before May 10, 2010.

I mastered the 2-3 hours of sleep and off to road in a jiffy… Also the power of “NAP”. I sometimes feel my self snoring in a matter of minutes! That’s how sleepy and tired I am! But then when i think about my Boss and his vision for our country together with my officemates and supporters: I feel much alive. (plus my lola cheering for me!)

My team gives me strength (Joyce, Hazel, Kap and Sir Brian) I can be my self around them. I am more productive when we huddle up and then share some funny conversations (after a hardcore- serious meeting) that will make my face turn red until I give up laughing.

Sofie, Gil, Brian Edang, Hazel and Kap Aguila

They are my inspiration and also one of my Idol too is my former head in OFW department, Ms. Judith Sto.Domingo! I look up to her ๐Ÿ™‚ I refer her as my mentor.

(OFW TEAM 2009- RJ, TIN, sen villar, MS JUDITH STO.DOMINGO, Ms. Lerma and Amie

The first time I saw her at the office of Senator Villar… I am so starstrucked! She is so pretty! Very well dressed, elegant and when she began questioning me for interview… I really gave my best and there were times I can’t speak because I am loving what i see and hear! (kakahiya hehehe)

She’s Intelligent and has a strong personality! that’s what I admire most.

From that moment, i told my self I want to be simply like her… but she’s way too smart but I guess I can meet her half way from time goes by ๐Ÿ™‚ Also she is very kind and will help you to achieve your dreams.

Sofie, Mitch, MS. JUDITH, Joyce

She even guided me for what to do in my career path. Only few people will teach you nowadays for free. She is simply the best and I light up when I see her at our office just like Senator Manny Villar’s impact to me ๐Ÿ™‚

I admire people who helps you to achieve your dreams, goals and other aspirations in life. I say to nega-peeps… I even stay away from them because I got no room for downers LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

I am so lucky to work with them! I am so proud to be an Employee of Senator Manny Villar.
