Just Me


I am a single mother of a cute and smart boy and a career woman.  I love life and everything that comes with it.  My son is my pride and joy and I thank him for constantly reminding me that I do not need all the luxuries in the world to make me happy.

Here are a few more facts about yours truly.

I love to laugh and make people laugh.  I laugh at my own corny jokes (sometimes to the verge of crying) and even my mistakes.  I always see the positive side of things.

I used to dream of becoming a doctor (still dreams of it sometimes) but I am slowly finding my niche... the place where I will truly succeed and be happy. 

I always have time to play, I still play like kids do.  I borrow my niece's PSP and Gameboy to play  Pokemon or Sonic.  Crazy!  Monotonous activities bore me.  Playtime with my son is one of my most valued moments.  He grows up so fast so I always make sure to spend time playing with him everyday before we go to sleep. 

I love to watch movies, I don't have a specific movie genre that I like but I watch sci-fi and action movies more often than any other genre.  

I love to cook.  I am not the best cook in town but I get compliments about my dishes.  I probably got my 'talent' in cooking from my grandmother.  When I was still a kid, I always help her in the kitchen to prepare the ingredients for the day's meals.  It was when I was in high school that I have earned her trust in the kitchen--she let me cook spaghetti.   Pillsbury pancake mix does not stay in our cupboard for too long because it is my usual experimental ingredient. 

I read books from time to time.  Reading is my 'me' time.  It allows me to relax and it makes my right brain work.  Well, shopping is my 'me' time, too.  I am not a compulsive buyer (?)... I just love to buy shoes and bags ( if I have the budget).  Clothes doesn't concern me much because my Mom is so kind to buy one for me from time to time.   

Blogging is what makes me busy every night.  It is where I let random thoughts spill and where you will get to know me better (if you are my avid reader).

I hope you will have a great time reading my entries.

XOXO
Joanne =)

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.

Blessed is the nation whose God is LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 33:12
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
