Posted in Awards, Let's Celebrate!

…and the winner is…

Our company launched new HR software, and announced a contest to encourage us to fill in as much information as possible. There will be an iPad winner for each division. Currently we have 5 divisions worldwide.

Guess what.. i bagged the iPad representing Middle East & India. Praise God!

I even allowed to write a two-paragraph essay on how I recommend our new software with my colleagues. Well, writing helps 😄

This award somehow encouraged me to write on my blogs 😄

Thank you for sharing with my happiness.

Speak with my wife for transition from being an employee to an entrepreneur. Taz tamang chill lang, give 10% sa church mga core leaders lang namin nakakaalam, balatuhan ko ng tig 100k hehe. Bigyan immediate family ng tig- 1m pero time deposit within 5 years. Enough na yun para makapag isip sila kung saan nila dadalhin at lumipas yung excitement.

Not yet. I’m seeing building it with my wife and my son.

Sunrise. I’d read somewhere that (paraphrased) “faith is a bird chirping in the dawn before a ray of sun shows up in the horizon.” Everything is dark, and then light is starting to glow in the east. The feeling is surreal! I remember watching sunrise in a shoreline, added up a calm ocean in the scenery.
