Wedding Bells

I'm no good in photo editing.. forgive me Sir Allan, I always turned to him on those stuffs..

October 9, 2010 this is such a remarkable and unforgettable date for my friend Allan Uniforme and his wife Eloisa de Jesus. After years of waiting and preparing, they finally tie the knot. I am so happy for both of them. Though we had to travel a long way from Laguna to Bulacan, I can say that it's worth it.

Seeing two people in love and starting anew their journey together always put a smile on my face.

The solemnization was at Hearts of Jesus and Mary Parish at Malolos Bulacan. Their reception was held at Malolos Club Royale Resort and Restaurant. Frankly speaking, I'm of two thumbs up on their food. super like. hihi... We've eaten lunch at around 1330 hours already which makes us all really hungry. so glad that our table was called first for the buffet. (so lucky..)

It was a long and fulfilling day!

Did I marry the right person?

I want to share this article entitled "Did I marry the right person?" , I wish I could also post the originator for this article but I had no way to find who it was. Every time that I'll be receiving this article thru forward mails, the author is always anonymous but nevertheless I'm giving him the full credit for such an enlightening article.

Here it is:

Did I marry the right person?

During one of our seminars, a woman asked a common question. She said, "How do I know if I married the right person?" I noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so I said, "It depends. Is that your husband?" In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?" Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind.

Here's the answer.

EVERY relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fell in love with your spouse/partner. You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and liked their idiosyncrasies (unconventional behavior/habit) .
Falling in love with your spouse wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love... Because it's happening TO YOU. People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet." Think about the imagery of that __expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened TO YOU.

Falling in love is easy. It's a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria (excitement) of love fades. It's the natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts.
The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship, but if you think about your marriage, you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.

At this point, you and/or your spouse might start asking, "Did I marry the right person?"

And as you and your spouse reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when marriages or relationship breakdown. People blame their spouse/partner for their unhappiness and look outside their marriage/relationsh ip for fulfillment.

Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most obvious.
But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your marriage. It lies within it. I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later. Because (listen carefully to this): THE KEY TO SUCCEEDING IN MARRIAGE/RELATIONSHIP IS NOT FINDING THE RIGHT PERSON; IT'S LEARNING TO LOVE THE PERSON YOU FOUND. SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. It'll NEVER just happen to you. You can't "find" LASTING love. You have to "make" it day in and day out. That's why we have the ---- expression "the labor of love." Because it takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it takes WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make your marriage/relationship work. Sure true love can only happen after you've fallen out of love. When you begin choosing to love, even if you don't feel like doing it ---- that's true love. And that's the foundation of a lasting and strong marriage.

Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your spouse) to succeed with your marriage.
Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. Just as the right diet and exercise program makes you physically stronger, certain habits in your relationship WILL make your marriage stronger. It's a direct cause and effect. If you know and apply the laws, the results are predictable. .. you can "make" love. Love is indeed a "decision".. . Not just a feeling. You'll not just go away with your relationship just because the feeling is gone. In the Bible, love is a command. You make it happen.

Marriage and falling in love is always a choice. It's a union of two souls in love with common dreams and aspirations, bound together by God.

Birthday Gal - Rhea Del Mundo

My birthday tribute to you... ^_^

Rhea Lobrin Del Mundo
Born : October 5, 1985

Let's start with her name... ^_^

-In Greek mythology Rhea is the daughter of Uranus - the sky, and Gaia - the earth. She was known as "The Mother of Gods". She married her brother Cronus and is the mother of Demeter, Hades, Hera, Hestia, Poseidon and Zeus.

- The second largest moon of Saturn is named Rhea too.

- Rheas refers also to large, flightless birds with gray brown plumage, long legs and long necks almost similar to an ostrich.

Now looking into these three names connotations, I'm thinking hard which best reflect her..

For the first one - Rhea came from a brood of 12 siblings. It's a big family also like those of Rhea in Greek mythology but I doubt that she will have 12 children in the future.. laugh laugh.. because for sure they will have a television set for her own family (making lesser spare time to make babies... haha )

For the second one - eeennnkk, she can't be compared to the second biggest moon in Saturn, it would rather be the smallest moonlet Aegaeon.. ^_^

For the third one - eeennnkk, haha.. actually my friend is the petite type. ^_^

Enough of this crazy stuffs, bawal ang pikon.. haha..

Happy birthday my dear Rheapotzkie. Thank you for the friendship. I hope that all your wishes come true, and if it didn't always remember that God is far wiser than you know. He's always answering our prayer not in the way we wanted but in the way He knows best for us.

Happy birthday again! love ♥ love ♥ love ♥

Imortal - ABS CBN

I'm very sure that almost everyone here in the Philippines know the teleserye entitled as "Imortal". I'm usually an early sleep goer , but last Monday evening , I together with my boyfriends' parents went to a birthday bash of their relative, thus I came home a little late than my usual arrival. (which is just in time for Imortal )

I really had no plan of watching the said teleserye though I find it's trailer quite good and interesting. When I came home I'm just in the nick of time, Imortal is on our tv screen with my aunts watching it. The red and black hues together with the smokey and the full moon effect of the episode caught my attention and I just find myself sitting together with my aunts and watching it till the end.

Hayzz... I'm not after the actors or actresses, I'm really after the uniqueness of the story. It's not the usual Twilight (vampire-werewolf) story as some say. It definitely had a story compared to Twilight.. hehe It's my opinion anyway ^-^ , I'm not fond of the Twilight movies but I can say that this teleserye is really different from it, though I must admit that they came up with the story because of the hit movie.

I just hope that it will live up to my expectations. Kudos to ABS-CBN for another great teleserye!

FRDP on it's 2nd Year

We had no big celebration this year but nevertheless I'm happy.

October 6
- this day marks FRDP's second year anniversary. FRDP stands for:

F -
R - Research
D - Development
P - Philippines

As a subsidiary of F.Tech Inc in Japan, we are engaged in electromechanical research and development of auto parts which caters to the demands of Honda, Nissan, Toyota and other car manufacturers. I've been a satisfied associate of this company since July 2008. I was first employed by FPMI (F-tech's sister company on July and was transferred to FRDP on October of the same year --- .)

Working here had been a blessing for me, my work schedule is Monday to Friday, thus giving me more spare time to rest and get things done. We have a very good working environment too, well engineered office, above average compensation and benefit package, encouraging management team and good and funny comrades. (Though there are those times na may mga nagpapasaway talaga - hehe)

I've learned a lot of things here, be it career related or not. There are times that you will find yourself in a confrontation with your colleagues regarding stuffs about work but at the end of the day, you know that they're still your friends and nothing changes between the two of you. And that's what I love most. We're like family here.

And as our theme goes " FRDP - We are One" , truly we really are. One as a family and our aim to be the number one - center of research and development for automotive parts here in Asia.

Happy 2nd Year Anniversary to FRDP! Long live! Cheers.. =)

Stupid Reasoning

Just this afternoon, I felt like I'm kinda' pissed off on the status of the Health & Safety report... I'm a member of that committee that's why I'm affected on the reporting feedbacks.

I am not the reporter for this month though I know that there should be an October report even if the reporter was on the night shift, I thought it will be our Committee Leader who will take the cue but I was surprised when he told our Manager that no one will report since the supposed reporter is not present. Eventually the Committee Adviser took the reporting.

What pissed me off is the reasoning that the report was not prepared because of their busy schedule. OMG, how could he use that reasoning?! Then it was followed by the remarks that if their group (we're on different department) was busy then they should have transferred the reporting to me. Duh! As if I wasn't busy at all.. Everyone's busy, how can it's not possible for them to have the report prepared in 30 minutes max?! If I'm busy and I need to do some stuffs, I even bring home the work or use my spare time during breaks just to get things done. I just find it so IRRESPONSIBLE..... I will wholeheartedly accept it if I know that they had exhausted all their efforts and they had no spare times for it, but it's not the case. We should all learn how to manage our time well and how to make small sacrifices to account for all our responsibilities and duties.
