Holler Me Back!!!

Tuesday, July 29, 2008
Absenteeism in my team has taken its toll on me. It seems that nothing works for those people who do not appreciate that I am extending to them. Instead of being grateful some of them seem to just ask for more as if I owe them big time. Inggrata!

I have bent the rules- even it means costing my job. That’s why it makes me even more frustrated when I could not count on the same people during critical times.

Today, for the first time in 3 years, I have denied a vacation request. I guess I just have to learn how to say "NO" on some requests especially to those people who doesn’t reciprocate the extra effort I am extending them. I am afraid I now have to be a "by-the book-supervisor" even if it means terminating people. No more bending over backwards for me. These people just have to learn.

Those were the days
Thursday, July 24, 2008
This picture was taken about a year and a half ago. I'm the one in pink long sleeves. All other people that are in this picture are my former QASs. We are supposed tobe in transition to another line of business when this picture was taken. They are all in the supervisory position just like me. One of them even became a manager. And I am really proud of them. They have gone a long way.

I miss those days. Days when I would always look forward to come to work. I feel no stress and pressure and it's just like going to high school.

HayYyYYyyy :(

Events and Caterers
One co-member in one of my yahoo support groups had his son’s part in Pasadena. It was just a simple party but based from the pictures I have seen, I should say that kids really did have a nice time during the party.

One of Russell’s college friends is set to have her wedding this October in Laguna, California. I thought they are going to have their wedding in Arizona and experience an Arizona wedding catering event. Weddings, weddings, weddings. I love weddings! The occasion just makes me look back during those times when I was preparing my wedding. Though the scouting for suppliers especially on caterers can be pretty tiring, getting to taste the sumptuous food and seeing the elegant reception designs can really make one’s day. Well aside from researching local caterers, I also searched for caterer internationally like Arizona catering in the hope that I can get ideas on how western caterers do their events. I have seen quite a number of photos of New York and California caterers and I am really impressed with their classy way of holding an event, be it corporate or a wedding occasion. OI still have a photo of one of those Phoenix Arizona catering services where the theme of the party was renaissance. The set-up was just awesome.

Be it wedding, christening or a child’s party, holding an event anywhere in the US can be costly. That is why getting the most affordable yet quality caterer is really important. Food is just the life of the party. hehehehehe

Losing Weight from Pregnancy
Tuesday, July 22, 2008
I am now on my 30th week. In my more than 7 months of pregnancy I think I have already gained more than 6 kilos. When I was still single, I didn’t have much problem about gaining/losing weight. My body has been cooperative with me. LOL But I am afraid that it will be a different thing now. According to some medical articles and journals that I have read, women tend to retain 3 kilos of weight they have gained during pregnancy. I know one of hubby’s cousins who is using a herbal tea from Singapore and I can see results of her losing weight. As there are countless of diet pills being sold over the counter, I am no longer sure which ones are safe and which are not. Of course, I would still prefer losing weight the natural way like keeping a proper diet and continuous exercise. I learned from one of my yahoogroups as well that breastfeeding can really make you lose weight.

The Heat is On
I meant not about the scorching heat that summer brings. But the "hot seat" in the office.

About a month ago, one of the call center managers resigned. Two weeks ago, a director resigned too. This week, one of my friend/manager also resigned.

They all came from the same account. I am reallyw ondering what is ahppening to that line of business that everybody seem to get burned out.

More on Casinos
Wednesday, July 16, 2008
Everytime I open my PC, advertisments of all types would just pop up in my screen. At one point, I was tempted to open an online casino website. I admit, I don't have a single idea how online casion works. I've been to a casion, the one in Heritage Hotel, just once. But up until this time, I still don't know the tricks of the trade.

Konti na lang...
Monday, July 14, 2008
Hubby's package has already arrived. Nakakaloka lang ang dami ng diapers. He bought two boxes (243 pcs/box) kasi of new born diapers. I'm trying to calculate kung ilang diapers kaya ang mauubos in 3 months. Kasi up to 3 months naman ang category ng newborn di ba? Feeling ko sobra-sobra yung diapers. Hubby shipped two huge (specially made) boxes where the rims for their new 4WD car can fit. Tapos sinaksakan na lang nila ng kung anu-anong items. Grabe ang galing magbagahe. Parang pwedeng pagkasyahin family of 5 people. LOL

The rims

Thanks to Tita Ems for these cute baby clothes

Buti na lang safe ung color ng items...

Cute Baby Stuff

Anyway Daddy Russ really bought a lot of baby stuff. Cute-cute ng onesies and foot rattle. I really like the Mittens and stroller na nga lang yata ang kulang. Actually, I have no idea kung ano pa mga kulang. It's gonna be my Mama Luvie who will be those remaining stuff. Pero ako na ang bibili ng stroller. Ung Chicco sterilizer, bibigay na lang daw ni ate. Sayang din yun. Megamall has a mid-year clearance sale this week. I no longer plan to buy a crib since most of n@wies members say that it's not that practical to buy one. Bibili na lang me ng Uratex foam good for 4 people para pede makagapang si baby saka para sa child proofing ng room ko sa apartment.

Hehehehehe... cute-cute!

I have also segregated the old navy slippers na ibebenta ko sa office together with some Victoria Secret stuff. Naku, good luck sa akin pagpunta ko sa office. I need extra hands kasi isang medium size box ung dadalhin ko.

Money, money, money!!!

I am on leave today (mejo maingay lang ngaun sa bahay nina mama luvie sinc etheir house is undergoing renovation). I'm sure, uber excited na mga pipol sa office. After all, they are getting at least P200 discount on their items versus selling price sa mall, tapos 2 gives pa.. Kulang na lang tocino-longganisa at bra... Hehehehehe!

I am hurt.

And what hurts even more is the fact that I have no other choice but to UNDERSTAND it. Importante daw kasi, which makes me feel that I am UN-important.

I should have looked into this kind of possibility before I made such a drastic decision. In the end, I have nobody to blame but myself.It cuts like a knife.

Un-needed. Un-appreciated. Taken for granted.

On Graduate Studies
Friday, July 11, 2008
As you graduate from an undergraduate program, you have already made significant strides for movement towards your professional career and interests. As you continue throughout life, there are still many other choices to make, including whether or not you should attend graduate or professional school. Only you can decide what additional investments you wish to make and what you wish to get out of your education. Some answers come naturally depending on the career goals you wish to pursue. In other words, some career fields or job opportunities “require” or is a prerequisite for you to pursue advanced studies and obtain a graduate degree. Other careers, however, do not always “require” an advanced degree. You are the only one who can answer what you wish to do and how you want to invest your time and money, especially if you have an interest in career advancement or personal satisfaction.
As you begin your decision-making it will become necessary for you to analyze your motives towards consideration of advanced studies. In addition, it will become important for you to do a thorough self-assessment of your interests, strengths, weaknesses, and goals, as well as spending time researching graduate programs that interest you and that will help you move towards your goals.
In my field, though experience really counts, having a MBA degree will really make your resume look good. Had I not marry at an early age, I would have pursued either a law degree or a MBA. Math is really my cup of coffee but I enjoy analyzing business statistics. But I have thought of so many things that prevented me from pursuing the course. But my sister-in-law decided to follow her dreams.

Before my sister-in-law graduated her BS Biology course, she was dead set on taking medicine. But dues to financial reason, she has to resort to taking a master's degree instead in the University of San Francisco. She's a smart girl. She knows that having a graduate studies degree will help her land a better job. She has browsed quite a lot of websites pertaining to graduate career advice & information. And I really think that these websites will help her career.

Busy Friday
I got payroll tasks to do. I also have some pending coaching sessions. God, workloads seem to just swamped during Fridays. Now, tell why I don't like Fridays (but I like Saturdays!).

Condotel Gardens
I used to work in Ambergis (now Telus) whose main office is located in Discovery Suites fronting Podium. Back in 2003, the garden a.k.a. smoking area was open to public. I have only been to 2 call centers and so far, the other offices I have been to aren't located in any garden buildings unlike Telus'. My current company now leases a land together with the Ortigas Group of companies. We are now situated in Tiendesitas in Frontera Verde, Pasig. Our building is a 5-storey building. The first floor has some tenants like banks, convenience store and coffee shops. We have a roof deck that we consider as our “lung center” where smoker would gather for a short cigarette break. Unlike with Ambergris, our roof deck is just a plain roof deck. No gardens what so ever.

It would have been nicer to work in one of those garden buildings. much more a garden office. I tried searching the net and here is what I found out about garden offices. Why garden offices? Because I am thinking that 3 years from now, I am going to own a business that I can call “mine”

'Office' implies a single use for these multi-functional buildings, but the warm, clean environment makes an ideal games room, hobby room, craft workshop or up-market summerhouse!
Working from home, however, is becoming increasingly popular for several reasons:
Reduced travel time - avoid the rush hour queues by walking out into the back garden!
The rise of computer based business - you no longer need to go into the office daily if you can work from home in a warm, clean environment
Property costs - if you no longer need to go into an office, then you can live where you choose, not necessarily where the office is - this can provide massive financial savings and quality of life gains.
Personal security - more and more people are choosing not to work in major cities due to the risks of crime and terrorism.
Travel costs - the cost of travel both in terms of time and money, plus the cost of parking if you drive to work, make a home office even more affordable.
New business - if you are starting up a new business what better way to do it than working from home. No long term leases on inappropriate premises to worry about.
Release space in your house - empty the spare bedroom of all that clutter and keep your house to live in and your office to work in!

Tell me what you don't like about yourself...?
Beauty is a curse on the world.

I got addicted to these lines as I followed the NIP/TUCK series. I am not really into medical-related drama but this series just got me hooked. It’s all about plastic surgeons and how they change lives though changing the things that people want to enhance on themselves. I would also want to get give credit to Julian Mcmahon who exudes sexiness. I just love the butt exposures! LOL I just finished its 3rd season and I am now looking forward of seeing the 4th season. This medical drama series is a big break for me from watching these crime-related TV series. :)
