50 Questions Challenge: Day 1 to 4

Remember the 50 Questions post?  I will try to answer/accomplish it one question a day.  There are fifty questions so that means that this page should be accomplished in fifty days. 

I have actually started four days ago about this but I put it in a separate page.  I thought it is best that I do it one blog entry per day instead of doing it in one page.

Here are my answers in the past four days of the challenge.

1. How do you really feel about what you are doing right now at this exact moment?

- I am angry... I will have to buy another digital camera because my son broke it.  I am not angry at my son, he's two and I know he didn't mean to break it.  He's just curious.  Argh!  At least the last photo it took were photos of my older sister and her youngest daughter, our Aunt Jeng who I haven't seen in two decades (yes, twenty years), her friend, my son and myself.  We had dinner at Balinsasayaw in Silang, Cavite, reminisced the good old days and did a little souvenir shopping.  Maybe the blurry photos is a sign that I should replace the digital camera and it was just my son who made me notice.

I missed three days so that means I am going to answer three questions today.  
2. What is your fondest childhood memory? Who was there? What was going on?

- I hope I will not burst into tears answering this.  Well, the fondest would be time with my Papa.  I remember when we were still living with our grandmother (his mother) I had fever.  He asked me what I want and he'll get it for me.  I said I want hamburger.  Needless to say, he got me a hamburger instantly.  Almost every time spent with him involved foods.  He cooks really great.  I especially love his arroz caldo.  It is actually the food that I miss most of the time.

3. How comfortable are you in your home?

- I am comfortable enough to do silly things.  I live solo with my son just beside my older sister's house.  It is the independence that made me decide to have my own house.  It is like having full power and domination over the things inside my house, I control who enters, I decide what to do with it.  It is nice to feel that I am the boss of the house.

4. How comfortable are you in your town/city? State?

- I live in a small town, away from the busy suburb and heavy traffic... I love it!  It is a place where I grew up, had a child and I can see myself growing old in my town.  It developed right before my eyes in conjunction with my growing up.  We used to play on the street, hang out in the nipa hut that our grandfather built just outside the house, greet passersby, exchange stories in the afternoon up until before dinner time.  Men and women wake up really early to plant or harvest crops.   Everything that we need in our life is just a walk away.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Random Clicks: Oyster Forest Life Resort

I have discovered another place where you can relax and enjoy the long weekend this October... Oyster Forest Life Resort along Sta. Rosa Road, Brgy. Langka, Silang, Cavite. If you are travelling from Tagaytay City, turn left when you see Tagaytay Econo Hotel. It is about 5 to 10 minutes away from the intersection. The resort is actually owned by Oyster Plaza Hotel in Paranaque.
The resort's theme is very Filipino. Bamboo cottages surround the pool area so you feel like you are just lounging in your own backyard without the hustle and bustle of the busy streets and stressful workload. They have a restaurant so you don't have to worry where to buy food when you get hungry. They also have a free WiFi connection so that you can update your Facebook or Twitter accounts for your friends to see how good of a time you are having.

The Eight Norms of Conduct of Public Officials

I attended the last session of my Ethics subject for my MBA and we discussed about good governance, ethical standards expected of a public official and the like. One of the reporters said that a public officer should earn public trust--which I totally agree.
Another thing that was discussed were the 8 norms of conduct of public officials:
1. Common public interest  2. Professionalism 3. Justness and sincerity 4. Political neutrality 5. Responsiveness to public 6. Nationalism and patriotism 7. Commitment to democracy 8. Simple living
If only these eight are being practiced by all government officials and employees, then, probably our courts will not trial a public official for graft and corruption.

The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah. Psalm 9:17,20
