The most difficult thing to feel is the fear of the unknown. - Cel

It's been weeks that I am waiting for this moment -- become a permanent employee in my new job. I have been psyching myself that the company needs people so I can be assured that I will be hired permanently. Also, I think I have done the job naman as expected. But still the fear of the unknown, the never-ending list of worries keep bugging me. Then a few days ago, my manager gave me the letter signifying I'm a perm staff na. :D Yeyeyey...

I am really thankful that despite of the world crisis, I am still have a job. Knowing that a lot of companies are cutting jobs, it's really alarming. As far as I know, there are no plans for our company to retrench since we are in good shape (i.e. we still have good clients). Just really have to prove more that I am really worthy for this company.

Another fear of the unknown is if my manager will allow me to take a few days off. As you can see on my calendar of events, my parents will be coming here in SG this Friday. I keep on thinking on how I will tell him considering that I just got perm and we have tons of work to do. I am already getting cold just thinking about it so I decided to go for it. It's so funny because even without knowing the exact number of days, he agreed. Woohoo.. :D

Sometimes the fear of the unknown will eat you up. Up to you if you will hold back or not think about it too much and take the risk. And as far as I know, it is generally better to take the risk. because most of our worries don't actually happen :)

So happy and so thankful.. :) I have tons of plans for my parents and I know I'll be able to do it. :D


Top Ten Thursday

Ten Things that Freaks Me the Most

1) Cockroaches(make that any crawling and flying insects). The sight of them really scares the hell out of me.
2) Drowning. The reason why I am always not that excited when I hear the words swimming and beach. The though/feeling of being submerged in the water and eventually drown is uggghhh, damn freaky.
3) People (especially those you know) who deceive others for money, in short SCOUNDRELS!
4) Being trapped in a confined room full of stinky people
5) Those who get a lot of info from you and yet they don't share what they know. These people have the tendency to take credit of others' achievements, ideas, work. Kenis..
6) Talangka (Crab) mentality
7) Having to touch something without seeing it.
8) People who say they're perfect. Winner! hehe..
9) Waking up in the middle of the night because of a very scary dream
10) Total darkness.

What freaks you out? :p


Lovely Wednesday

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.

Sometimes it is really not that easy to get up and be positive about everything in your life. Day-by-day there are things that will push you a bit closer to the edge and make you feel helpless and down. It's not easy but I know things happen for a reason. But, just thinking.. God gives me a lot of strength to surpass any challenges that life throws at me and for always bringing a lot of blessings in my life;

..of my husband who never fails to make me smile and understands my moods;

..of how I can now provide more for my family brings me so much happiness; me and my very few close friends constantly ensures that we're still connected no matter the distance;

.. how life brings forward endless and amazing possibilities;

These keeps me going. These make me grateful each day. :)

True love is unconditional.

When I'm not just thinking about myself anymore

>> How many times in your life have you fallen in love?
Just twice BUT the first one was definitley nowhere near the love that I have for Mon.

>> Have you ever fallen out of true love because you were mad at the moment?
No, else it's not actually true love.

>> Do you feel love and physical attraction are the same thing?
No, though there are some people who can't distinguish the difference (ngii)

>> If your true love became ill or disfigured would you continue to love them the same way?
Of course, because true love doesn't have boundaries.

Definitely NO.

Yes but wasn't able to handle each other's differences too well.

My To-do List

>> Monday, November 3, 2008

I normally blog hop when I am drained. A few minutes of browsing really helps to relax my fried brain from having the 8-hour job. I noticed that there are a lot of bloggers who sort-of define a subject for each day of the week. So from now on, I will try to do the same. Though my blog will not be limited to the subjects I'll define. The list I thought of was...

  • Thankful Monday -> good to start the week with your heart full of gratitude
  • Wordless Tuesday -> sometimes silence means a lot
  • Lovely Wednesday -> love is everywhere
  • Top Ten Thursday -> a thought on just about anything
  • All-Good Friday -> to appreciate all the good things in life
  • Photo Hunt Saturday -> looking back is always fun
  • Food Sunday -> anything from foods that satisfy our body to foods that feed our soul
There! I'm so excited to do this. :p


How To Get To Avenue Q...

>> Sunday, November 2, 2008

Here is my official kwento on our yesterday's kitakits for Avenue Q last Nov 1. Will blog in bullets para mas mabilis.. :))

  • Weng was in charged of booking the tickets for us. And it was Weng's lucky day because the system assigned her reservation in front row! :) Ticket was a whooping 123 SGD but we are so sure it's worth it.
  • Met at aroung 5pm at Marina Square, we had our early dinner (as per my request) at Breeks Cafe. Had a very sumptuous set of meal. :p
  • Since we ate a lot and we are still a bit early for the play, we decided to walk outside esplanade and take some pics.
  • I think it was around 730PM that we finally entered the theater. And whoah! we're really in front row. As in first row, middle. Woohoo. The stage is probably 2-feet away. And though the management explicitly said we can't take photos, we had sneaked for a few not-so-good-shots. Oh well, what the heck! At least we have some pics :))
  • We really had a lot of fun watching the play. We even had some moments where we recalled our Miss Saigon stage play gig a few years back. Filipino performers are really amazing and world-class! (not that I am a Filipino hehehe..).
  • After that two and a half hour play, seems that we can't get enough of each other hahaha.. Sinulit na talaga ang minsang mga gimik. So we opted to have coffee.. Starbucks is the nearest one, so off we go. And yey! Starbucks Special Christmas Season drinks are back! This time, it's Dark Cherry Mocha and Toffee Nut!
  • So the usual chikahan and keep ups.. had a lot of fun.. The pictures said it all. :) Whoops! Kainis, wala pala akong group pic sa starbucks. :p
