Lotto Game

I tried my luck and bet 80 pesos in lotto for a chance to win more than 300M pesos.  My aunt and I hurried to the betting station last night for tonight's grand lotto draw.

While waiting for the numbers to be drawn, I am already thinking of how to spend the money.  Here are the things that I thought of:

1.  Today's jackpot is 333,000,000+,  I will give the 33M+ to charities.
2.  I will give portion to my mom, dad and two sisters.
3.  I will build a house on my itty bitty lot, I really don't want a big house because it is harder to maintain.
4.  If my sister will pursue her migration to Canada, I will give her financial assistance.
5.  I will put up the business that I have been longing for.
6.  I will force my mom to resign on her job.  She doesn't need to work anymore anyway because we're all working.
7.  I will share my blessings to my relatives.
8.  I will put the rest of the money in different financial institutions.

I had butterflies in my stomach while the numbers are being drawn.  Praying each time for any of my numbers to be called.  

I did not win.  No one got the numbers.  Better luck next time.  Next time the prize will be higher, perhaps.

I am still optimistic.

Tomorrow, I will be a millionaire (whatever that means).

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
