Happy Halloween

Two more days and  it's time to bring out your costumes, candies and share scary stories because its Halloween! By this time, people are already busy preparing and decorating their home while the kiddos are already  looking and shopping for their costume. Here at the office, we've decided that we're going for the "Plants Vs. Zombies" theme...sorry I couldn't post any pictures yet because the place is still a bit messy.  The awarding for the best group theme will be later at 1 pm, too bad I won't be able to participate and witness the awarding since I'm about to go home after an hour and my next shift will be at 9 pm. The department also prepared candies for the little kids since some of our colleagues's kiddos will be coming here later for Trick or Treat.

Since this is the perfect time for wearing costumes, I'll be sharing some old pictures when I was all dressed up as Snow White.

We even had a very short presentation. I remember having a video of the whole skit but I can't seem to find it. 

I miss being with these of the best people I've worked with. 
And in case you're wondering, that red round's not a tomato, it was supposed to be an apple...huge huge apple! =)

How bout you, who do you want to be this coming Halloween? 
Sweet Day to you All!

Letter to Santa

Dear Santa,

Christmas is fast approaching and I just want to let you know that I have been really really really good this year! If it is not too much to ask please have one of my friends or love ones buy me an Ipod Nano with Multi Touch as a Christmas present or as a Birthday gift. =)

This will be the perfect present for me because you do know that I Heart M-u-s-i-c soooo much! My day will not be complete without listening to beautiful songs, aside from listening to my favorite tunes, I'm also into keeping myself physically fit. You know I've been regularly doing my exercises now and you also know that  I also love to walk at the park after my shift. The new Ipod Nano with MultiTouch can work as my my personal trainer. It’s portable and wearable design, which makes it runnable, walkable, and workout-able is just perfect! It's also a pedometer, which makes it the ideal exercise partner.

This baby is loaded with lots of new features. You can play music all day, all night, yes that's right,'s battery can play my favorite songs for 24 hours non-stop! Wicked, right? It also have a feature called "Genius" where in it finds other songs on the iPod nano that go great together and makes a Genius playlist for me. If you would like to check out the other features just visit:

Thank you for taking time the to read my letter since I know that you are really busy preparing for this coming holiday. I had to post my letter in this blog because I don't have your e-mail address as well as your mailing address.

Sincerely yours,

Please tell Mrs. Claus that I said Hi.
Oh, and just in case the Ipod Nano is not available, Ipod Touch will be perfect too!
And send my regards to Rudolph and the gang.

Let's Zumba!

Just in case you're wondering what I am up to lately and what makes me feel good you know? Blame it on Zumba!

Zumba is a dance fitness program created by dancer and choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez in Colombia during the 1990s. The program combines Latin and international music with dance in an effort to make exercise fun. Zumba classes are offered through licensed instructors in more than 60,000 fitness center locations in 105 countries and seven-and-a-half million participants.[1] DVDs are also available for learning at home. Classes and instructional DVDs use music based on salsamerenguecumbiareggaeton, samba and other international music styles and forms.  The Zumba program is recognized by the America's leading fitness educators, including the Aerobic Fitness Association of AmericaIDEA Health and Fitness Association, and the American Council on Exercise.[2]  ***(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

I'm currently on my 2nd week now and guys, trust me this is really fun. You don't have to worry  if you have two left feet, the video will show you how to do the basic steps for all kinds of music be it salsa, reggaeton or even merengue- my favorite! Currently, Zumba is a major hit in other countries, I just hope that they can offer it soon in Philippines. Although I have read it in girltalk that Gold's gym now offers Zumba classes I am not so sure though.  For now, I am doing my workout by watching  their videos, I was able to get a copy of Zumba Fitness' Total Body Transformation System DVD.

How bout you, what type of work out do you do to keep your body in shape?
For you guys who loves to dance, then I highly recommend you to try what are you waiting for? Let's Zumba!

Sweet day to you all!

HongKong Adventure

Before anything else, I would like to greet you...yes you, all of you my beautiful readers  a happy day! I missed you all and missed my blog too! It has been two months since my last update. Sorry guys, I've been a little busy and VERY lazy for the past two months...I guess I needed a break. Oh wait, I just had my vacation last August but it was just a short one, I guess it's better than no vacation at all. 
Last August Sweets, Toots and yours truly went to Hong Kong for a short vacation. We've been preparing for our trip for weeks and we even drafted a sample Itinerary just to make sure we manage our time wisely while roaming around the city, you see...we have a very limited time we only have 2 days to roam the city and on our 3rd day, we have an early flight going home.  

We arrived at the airport at 10 in the morning, The airport is very big and when I say big I mean HUGE! You even have to ride a train just to go to Immigration.  It was already 11:30 when we finished all the requirements and things we needed to do first before going to the hotel to check-in, that is,  (money changer, octopus cards etc.).   On our first day, we went to The Peak, HK Museum, Avenue of Stars, Harbour City and Night Market. Oh and our timing was perfect because almost all stores are on sale and most outlet stores are on 70% off! Perfect isn't it? As for the next day, we've decided to to go Ngong Ping 360 and DisneyLand. I will just post another entry about the different places we've been to since there's so much story to tell and one blog post is not enough =)
Before the trip, most of my friends and officemates who have been to HK, warned us that most people there do not speak english and most of them are rude.  Well, I have to agree that not all can speak English but about the rude part--I am sorry but I have to disagree. Maybe some people are rude but, you can also see a lot of rude people here in the Philippines right? These kind of people are everywhere and too bad we can't get rid of them right? So, it's just the same in HK. In fact, we even met 3 kind hearted people who helped us out.  The first person who helped us  was an old lady and she's a HK national,  we asked her for direction on how to go to Jordan exit and the old lady can hardly speak English but she was kind enough to help and answer our questions even if she is having a hard time explaining, and what made her an angel is that she even walked with us and showed us the way to the Hotel. The second person is an OFW, when she found out that we were from PI, she was very helpful in giving us direction and which elevator to take. And lastly, the third person was a young guy and he's a HK national too. He gave us the direction on how to go to harbour city mall and he told us that since he was too early to meet up with his wife at the mall, he can help us and get us a taxi to go to harbour city since our legs and feet can no longer walk due to exhaustion.  These people are very kind and we really do appreciate all the help!
It was my first time to travel outside the country so it was really fun and memorable. I definitely am going back to HK and when I do, I wish to take my Mom, Sis and Sweets. And if anyone of you is generous enough to send me free roundtrip tickets, I will greatly appreciate it! hahaha!

Thank god it's Friday and have a sweeeet day to you all!
