A Small Act Of Kindness

This morning, I decided to take an emergency leave… to go to church [Ma’am Rich, family matters pa rin to 🙂 ]

Sobrang lakas ng ambon… so ulan na sya.. #anudaw.. anyway.. I went to Baclaran Church to light a candle and make a wish and pray. Kahit papaano, nabawasan yung worries ko and gumaan ang loob ko that moment.

When I was about to go out of the candle area (nakalimutan ko tawag dun), a guy called me and asked if pwede daw makisukob. No choice naman ako at pinasukob ko sya sa payong kong sira-sira.. Buti na lang hindi sya katangkaran at hindi ako nahirapan maghawak ng payong.

He asked me kung saan daw ako sasakay, and I told him “pa MRT po”. And sabi nya MRT din sya sasakay… so sabay na lang daw kami.  Then nung nakapara na kami ng jeep, he sat dun sa tabi ng driver while I went inside (sa likod).  Nagulat ako when he said na sya na daw magbabayad sakin.

Natuwa ako dahil just because of that pa-sukob thing.. nakalibre pa ako ng pamasahe. Ayos si kuya.. Then when we reached the MRT Taft, I was surprised na hinintay nya akong bumaba kahit naulan pa. He then told me, “Mauna na ako ha. Salamat. God Bless, God Bless”.

It was a nice feeling. Ang sarap ng pakiramdam na nakakatulong ka sa isang tao na hindi mo naman kilala.. kahit sa simpleng paraan. 🙂

Lesson Of This Story: Magdala ng payong.



Quotes from People Handling Skills Seminar

Last Nov 8-10, I attended the People Handling Skills Seminar at Oakwood Premier Joy-Nostalg Center, Ortigas.  Nung una, kinabahan ako kasi we will be in a room full of supervisors, CIOs, managers, etc… nakakapanliit lang.

But after that 3 days, sobrang nag-enjoy ako! I learned a lot of things sa seminar. Sobrang galing ng facilitator namin, and the participants are really nice.  I even gained new (fb) friends dahil sa seminar na yon hehe 🙂

But asides from the knowledge about Leadership, madami din akong quotable quotes na nakolekta sa seminar na yun. Now lemme share some of ’em:

  • We opt to let go of our dreams because real life happens.
  • Our organization are not hindrances but vehicles to reach your dream.
  • Appreciate who you are so you could learn to appreciate other people.
  • Everything rises and falls on leadership
  • A bad decision is better than no decision at all.
  • You always have a choice
  • Life is equal t 10% of what happens to you and 90% of  how you react to it
  • Feedback is neither positive nor negative. It depends on how we see it.
  • I’d rather hear a “no” than a “maybe” that never comes true.
Nice di ba? 🙂 And isa pang nainspire ako na gawin because of this seminar is yung paggawa ng Life’s To Do List.. hmmm gusto kong itry kayo baka mablanko ako.. at mafrustrate sa dami hehe.. anyway, pag sinipag.

2011 Birthday Post

October 13, 2011

I never imagined na maeexperience ko ang birthday salubong… sa office! while working!

May sudden request yung client namin that day (Oct 12) so I have no choice but to stay.. and when the clock hit 12 midnight, my team mates sang a Happy Birthday song to me. Natuwa naman ako. And the greetings from text messages and twitter started coming in. Nawala focus ko bigla. hehe. I went home 1am .

I woke up a lil late, but just in time to tune in to The Morning Rush. Kahit wala si delle, ok lang.. Chichi and Gigi greeted me naman, along with the rest of the rushers.  Unfortunately, I have to go to work that day (coz I’m saving my VL for the long weekend).  And when I got to the office …

Inabangan ko talaga yan hahaha! I even received a surprise cake from my boss! So sweet!!!

And my phone continuously received the greetings from friends and strangers. I thought that it was ok sana if I was on leave, so that I could answer all the greetings. But I really can’t.  So ayun, continue working and ended my day normally.. kahit daming pangungulit ng mga officemates for treat. deadma lang LOL.

When I got home.. walang handa. As usual. So I went directly in front of my PC to check my online greets.. and there were a LOT!!! It was overwhelming! More than 430 greets from facebook, twitter, instagram, and text messages (oo, binilang ko po sya LOL)… and a day was not enough for me to thank all the people who bothered typing the words “happy birthday”.

And with that, I thought of picking the Top 10 20 Birthday Greetings for me.  Gusto ko lang.. bakit ba! Let’s do this:
