Regular Employee

regular on 365 Project

We had a simple celebration lately with our office mate who just received good news just this morning.  She is already a regular employee and I know she is very happy when she learned it.  This is a milestone for her to learn and widen her experience.  She is now entitled of the company's benefits and other perks during her stay.

I remember when I was waiting also that time. I was a little bit nervous if I my superior will continue my stay.  I come to the office on time and very diligent because I am new to Excel applications.  I can say that I have learned a lot of during my stay here even if I have not learned it in college. It is really a nice experience.

Masonic Rings

I was surprised when I learned that hubby is quite interested to join freemasonry. In my mind, these are people who dressed differently during their rites like in burial. I mistakenly consider them like the Knights of Columbus because of the huge suit and ring on their finger. I guess their rings were sources from masonic rings at According to hubby, his friend is willing to sponsor him for his commencement.

When I learned that they will not be blessed by our priest during their burial, I was hesitant. I guess hubby does not need a group to widen his connections this time. His achievement is already enough. I guess if hubby will give more reasonable facts I am still willing to listen, but I cannot promise to allow him immediately.

Baby Blue and White Necklace

This trendy necklace I got from KCC mall brand as OPTIONS is a great buy. Actually, my mind was closed to buy another accessory at SM again when hubby suggested why not try another brand. Of course, why not? I am happy with my new collection and I am wearing it today.

I chose this color to compliment with my Fuschia blouse.  I guess I made the right choice.  Heheheh

Stranger Chatmate Update

Yes, my feeling was true!

My friend just informed me this morning that the guy was asking money from to her to help him encash his check. The bank requires him to be a depositor of the bank so he will be allowed to grant his request. Actually, the said guy lost his wallet so he was forced to encash it. But, the intriguing part is that why he needs big amount of money even if he already asked for help from his mother and his lawyer. He insisted that my friend will let him borrow a total of $2,000 down to $1,000. For us Filipinos, it is already big so my friend told him that she has no money and she can't help him for it. And, up to this time he never called. I'm really sure that Hayden Max is an alias name. Too bad, what if he is using a real name from somewhere without consent?  This is very illegal.

Honestly, when the guy was showing evidence of his travel ticket and checks, I smell something fishy. I guess he is trying to condition my friend's mind that he is rich and a successful career man. As what I have said, their relationship is only a month old. It was a very young relationship and sounded too good to be true. For me, as long as I will meet the guy on the day he promised to come, it will be the time that I will be moved from his sweet promises he shared to my friend. My friends and I still give him the benefit of the doubt. I just don't know if he will keep his promise even if my friend fails to help him this morning. I am just thankful that my friend did not take the bait and learned not to trust easily. I know that in God's time she will find a partner to share her life with. She deserves it.

Stranger Chatmate

Finding a foreign partner through online chat is not new anymore.  Friending is not bad, but trusting immediately is a different story.  We are raised in a different culture and have his or her intention why people are doing it.  Good or bad, we should be aware that this must be taken seriously.

I have heard many Filipinas are victims of trusting someone they've known through this kind of global network. Unfortunately, Filipinas who are clueless of some scams are left crying after they gave money because they were asked to do it in exchange for a beautiful present, but haven't received it after doing so.  Others use women to be a drug carrier to enter in a foreign country and if she will not be lucky, she will face the legal charges alone.  With these two examples, you understand me now.

This coming Saturday, my friend will be meeting her chat mate from the US.  She is very dear to us and I know she also has her reservations.  I trust her, but as her friends, we will be there if ever this is true.  I do not want that she will experience what happened to my office mate where that she waited for nothing.  My friend and this so-called Mr. Right blooming relationship is only a month old and honestly I am doubtful if he will come.  (Hahaha Nega!)  But, I will not spoil her excitement.  I still hope that this year be her year to have her own love life and live in a foreign country. 

Please spare my friend if this guy is looking for another victim, Lord.

Hexafish Design

Hexafish Style Rainbow loom on 365 Project

Yey! I made it.

I did this last night while waiting for hubby to arrive.

I checked the YouTube site on how to do it and luckily I followed the instructions well. As a newbie to Hexafish, I finished it for long more hours. Whew! But, I am happy. It is really helping me not to get bored last night.
