I am going to get a Royal Teak Collection 5′ Round Teak Drop Leaf Patio Table and Wicker Chair Set for the parents’ patio. I accidentally poured white paint over the old set they had when I slipped down the basement’s stairs. The can of paint I was holding flew out of my hands and landed on the patio set they temporarily put in the basement.
Since they won’t be able to use it anymore, I just told them I’d get them a new one. My mom said that she wants a wicker set and that’s that I am going to get for them.
I hope it will be delivered on time for the party this weekend.
My college buddy AJ dropped by my condo unit the other night. It’s a good thing I was at home because it was my rest day. He didn’t tell me beforehand that he would be dropping by but it was a pleasant surprise, I must say. We caught up with the events in our lives especially at work. In the middle of our conversation, he asked to borrow my laptop. He said he wanted to buy akai mpk49 as he’s going to be forming his own band very soon.
AJ was wide awake and dreaming and I was just there ready to support him in his dreams. He has a number of businesses under his name but I know that deep down to be in a band has always been his dream.
Do you like my new header? I made it myself!
I actually found myself with an hour of free time so I took that opportunity to create a header for this blog.
So what do you think? Like it?
It’s a simple one, I know, but it serves its purpose, don’t you think?
Anyway, I am inspired to post about a lot of stuff happening in my life here.
So just come back for more.
Having two kids in the family is such a joy. Whenever I get to visit my sister, I learn a thing or two from my nephew and niece. Just by playing with them, watching their favorite cartoons, and most especially while talking to them.
You will be amazed at how many things you will learn about life from a little kid.
I guess I’m going to enroll in yoga, too.
I don’t have any plans of enrolling but since my sister is dying to learn yoga and she doesn’t want to go alone, she begged me to come with her even on Friday nights and on weekends. For the love of my sister, I said yes. I don’t know what will happen to me as I am burly man but we’ll see.
I just might find myself liking yoga.
Now, I am off to find the best yoga clothing for me.
Go into the heart of love, and come from that place in all your choices and decisions, and you will find peace. - Neale Donald Walsch
My older sister would always tell me to follow my heart. It doesn’t mean that I would be stupid in my decisions, she said. It just means that I should make sure that I do what is good because it will be the thing that will make me happy. Our hearts would tell us what is good. Always, she said.
And you know what? I do believe her. I follow that advice since then until now. It has never failed me. Somehow, it brought me the peace I know everyone is looking for… peace that I know most are not so lucky to find.
Follow your heart and you will find peace.
My cousin Jake’s eye doctor told him to start wearing progressive eye glasses to correct his eyesight.
He is always hard at work even at home. Always has his eyes on his computer. If not working, he loves reading his non-fiction books. No wonder his eyesight is getting a beating!
So now his eye doctor is telling him to take care of his eyesight better. He can’t just neglect it if he doesn’t want the headaches and the blurred vision. He said yes but I doubt if he will stop being hard at work all the time or to read while already on his bed.
It is always laid-back Tuesdays in the office these next three months. The bosses made the announcement last week. I guess the bosses saw how stressed out most people are in the office so they decided to implement a suggestion that came from one of the managers on the floor. Create a day where everyone can relax and have fun while working.
So they created laid-back Tuesdays.
Every Tuesday, all employees can wear casual clothes – jeans and shirt will do. There are free beverages for everyone – iced tea, coffee, chocolate drink, and Coke. Sandwiches will be given on coffee breaks. And three times a day, during break time, a professional musician with a Alexander Reeds saxophone will be playing in the pantry for an hour!
Now everyone is looking forward to Tuesdays to relax and unwind.
The bosses are looking forward to a positive result to this campaign of theirs.
I went to the parents last Sunday, as per usual, for brunch. Instead of just the family, my parents, my older sister, my niece and nephew, and me, there were two other persons there that day. My cousin Mia and her husband, Dave. They were newly-weds and they came back from their six-week long honeymoon in the Caribbean. They came back with some small tokens for their wedding principal sponsors. Since my dad is their godfather, they came back with swisher sweets little cigars for him.
I just find it sweet and thoughtful that they got something for the people who will now become second parents to them. I grew up with my cousin Mia and I am really close to her. I am so happy seeing that she’s happily married to a good man.
…I plan to do something unexpected of me. And that’s to become more involved in financial dealings.
Let me confess something to you… I leave the money matters to my parents. Even if I am already in my 20′s, my parents still control my money. And it’s perfectly fine with me! I am able to save more than enough money for my future that way. If I have the control to my savings account, I tell you I would splurge on one stuff after another.
Anyway, so my dad called me up to ask me if I am interested in krugerrand and I said I would like to know more about it. I am very much interested in investing my money now and knowing more on how to handle my own finances.
