A Good Body Rest at Body Rest Spa

Image
You know how it is with audits. It gets a little cerebral sometimes. No, not sometimes, it should be most times. 
The office's quest towards transitioning from ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 has been exhilarating. While it is true that a good Quality Management System may help tasks to lighten up or be organized, many of my colleagues think otherwise. Yet, we have no choice but move towards continual improvement. 

So we traveled from Koronadal City to Tacurong City, that is 4 hours round trip for an audit if you are coming from General Santos City. That was a Wednesday, and come Thursday, I was on my way to North Cotabato, 6 hours round trip travel because again, Audit. And then Friday came, I was the one being audited. As an Internal Quality Auditor (IQA), these tasks are pretty tiring, finding non-conformities or looking for ways to improve the service of the office. It can be pretty taxing to a physical body especially when you are working with your brains and eyes, and the bo…

Love

Image
Here is a book I just finished reading. It was written by one of my favorite authors, Leo Buscaglia, and this is all about LOVE. Yes, old topic but still a very strong one.

I am sharing this here on my blog because I felt the need to share the following few pages with you. It says that when a man loves, he/she may do so, but his/her love could be more powerful if he/she understands the following:




And finally! 

Gensan Goes Fibr

When I started blogging, it was because I felt the need to communicate to the world the beautiful things that I have been experiencing and sharing good stuff to people who matter to me, especially family.

I also blogged because I have felt the need to voice out my feelings, what my mind dictates me to feel, how I feel about things and where I have been. My family has been my utmost reason that I do this; it is because I wanted the world to know about my beautiful family, one family whose hunger for travel, food, and everything nice is insatiable. My hobbies are also included on the things that I blog about. 
But that was before. Ten years ago, only a number of people were lurking on the Internet. You can read about people's lives thru their blogs, and you have to visit their blogs in order to read what has been going on in the lives. This time, it is different, social media has been the "in" thing. Most people have their Instagram accounts, Twitter, Facebook and many ot…

2016 Life Accomplishments

Image
Only when you see a good life ahead of you should you risk the race. If you slip and fall, get up and bounce back. If things turned out differently, you have prevailed in trying and nevertheless understood that it wasn't meant for you. But reach for it! Risk the race.
I did, and it brought me tears, but the sweetest is the JOY when you finish the race. 

And after you finished the race, wait for other courses or tracks to open, try them once more. Wait patiently because up ahead is someone who will reward you with what you think has been impossible to achieve, what others have been blind in seeing about you. Other people see your struggles and pains, and they think you deserve better opportunities. Other people just don't care.  inLove them anyway.  

Never stop dreaming! You will get to the point that you think you have covered all. That is a lie! Do not dwell on it! Stay strong with your cores, be efficient and diligent with what you do. Proceed, do not look back at the mista…

Of Octogenarians and Septuagenarians

Image
When my very own favorite grandma and grandpa died, we weren't there in Antique. We were not even there to pay our last respects because of school and financial limitations. But before we came here in Mindanao to join our parents, my Lolo and Llola cared for me since birth and until I turned Grade 5. 
Entering Grade 6, I left them for Mindanao to join my sister and my parents. It was a heartbreak.  They were already in their Septuagenarian days when we left them. And I remember my Tatay Salus, as we fondly called him, roaming the streets near our house and peeing in his pants; he was already in his incontinent state. 
My grandmother, sickly and with an enlarged heart at that time, would carefully and patiently dress my grandfather, bathe him and turned him smelling good again. I still remember the two of them going to church together, and leaving church separately. Nanay Connie would bring me home, expecting Tatay Salus to be home earlier until we had to search for him, in neighb…

Family Adventure at Eden Nature Park Skycycle

Image
Few days after graduation, my family decided to take a small vacation even for just one night out of town. On our way to Davao City, part of the itinerary was to drop Eden Nature Park in Calinan, a visit.
I have been to Eden Nature Park thrice but it was my Mom's and sisters' first time. The park was filled with guests and we were not able to get a shuttle tour because we booked so late. But we so enjoyed the Eden Nature Park Skycycle. The combo that was the Zipline and the Skycycle cost P300 only. But we couldn't leave Eden without having tried the Skycycle.

At first, I was apprehensive to try it because of the height. I have tried so many adventures from Lake Sebu zip line to the Cebu's Sky Walk, and many other zip lines in different locations but this Skycycle slightly took my courage away as you have to pedal your way to the finish line and back through a cable, just a cable!

What's worse is that, even if I feel so afraid, I kept faking a courageous front so a…
