We planned this Intramuros thing for our parents to celebrate their 25th Wedding Anniversary.
Then Glenda came and cancelled our reserved tour. It was raining the whole time and some areas were closed off due to some typhoon damage.
But we managed to have fun anyway, just walking around and inside the walls. 19 July 2014

The Papier Tole Shop was established in 1668 as a center for recycled paper products.
It continues the tradition until today, and remains a favorite among souvenir shops in Intramuros. The Papier Tole Shop was established in 1668 as a center for recycled paper products.

Making a more conscious effort to eat healthier.

Some of it is just avoidance: soda, sweet drinks, junk food…

Other parts are just inconvenient. But hey! Health is Wealth!

Just this morning, my boss, a dedicated Christian, invited one of his church’s pastors to come to the office. 

At first I thought it was just a social call, because it has happened before. But the boss called all of us in the office and introduced us to the pastor. No, he wasn’t there to convert us. He was there to help us pray.

We’ve been having some growing concerns at work lately, problems appeared out of nowhere and the office’s morale is down. All of us are a little overwhelmed, but I am confident that we can wriggle out of things one at a time.

The thing with small companies is that when things are tight, everyone is rooting for each other. Kakayanin, kumbaga. So even if the problems are daunting and there is much to do, the confidence is there. 

When I was in college, I thought I knew what “hard work” meant. I thought it was staying up past 2am to finish something, or doing a project beyond what is required.

Now, I see “hard work” as sacrificed weekends, altered comfort zones, forced out people-skills, unexpected decision-making moments, and a lot of patience. 

I wish it was easier for me to work harder, easier for me to see that final goal in mind and work towards it. It’s very difficult for me, especially that part about sacrifice.

I’m learning though.
