A day after I arrived from Taiwan, the team has decided to reserve for a buffet lunch at Heat Edsa Shangri La Plaza for our last get-together or one may say “Farewell Party”.
After 2 years and 4 months, the program that we took care of and developed will be fully transitioned to another site. Thus, we collated all our funds, invited those members who moved out to other program and enjoy our afternoon filled with sumptuous meal and laughters.
Be drowned with some of the photos taken at the event:
Wednesday, September 26, 2012 – You may be required to give more of yourself in the community or on the job today. Fortunately, your actions can have an immediate positive impact on those around you, but it’s crucial to conserve some energy for the days ahead. Don’t attempt to finish everything all at once. Spread out the hardest work over the next few days for the best results.
So this is the price we have to pay for having two consecutive weeks of long weekends, work over work over work, deadlines, meetings, reports and impromptu business review! Nothing new, but all in one week – actually in two days!
Last week was just so intense, stressful, exhausting, and pressure is on its peak! I didn’t know which one to prioritize as all of which are needed ASAP! Month-End Reports, Weekly Reports, Daily, Quarterly Reports, Billing, Meetings name it! All reports are needed in 1 effin’ day! It was just crazy, CRAZY!
Anyway, good thing it ended well. At least not for me but I am happy for them. Three out of Four of those whom I nominated was casted for the most prestigious club or recognition in our company – The President’s Club! Cindy, Chris and Ivan, you all deserved this recognition! Welcome to the Club and Enjoy your stay in Shangri-La, Boracay!
To those who are bitter for not being chosen, let’s all be happy for them. Really, strive hard and maybe you’ll be next. There’s time for everyone.
I’m just happy that I can now breath, at least even for few days. The week that just passed is somehow one of the busiest this year. I feel like I’m on a buffet where food keeps on replenishing on my plate and I can’t even swallow nor digest everything. I even forgot to celebrate my own birthday – good thing they cook spaghetti at home a day before my day.
The week is full with all the business review that you can think of. Weekly, Monthly and Quarterly, not to mention the daily calibration with the projects I’m handling and all the assessment that needs to be done. Working for 14 hours a day, in consecutive days feels like you’re in hell considering that you have to report back to work as early as you can.
This is me when I can finally say “Hello! Rest Day!!! I’m happy I can enjoy my month now!!!”
Saturday is usually a get loose day, meaning I can spend the rest of the day goofing around shopping districts and spend some hard earned cash but yesterday was different. I just want to go home as early as I can and enjoy the weather and sleep all day. I bought a lot of Dec’s Dimsum to treat myself and celebrate (finally) my birthday.
I’m all good now, I can go back to work on Tuesday and continue with the projects I have. Now, while I still have the rest of the day to enjoy, I want to go out, see a movie or just waste some time at SnR.
Just got home, tired from work. I reported to work last night at 9:30 PM knowing that Quarterly Business Review will start by 12AM (as previously communicated). I was rushing to go to work so I can review and finish my report for the Weekly Operations Report after the QBR. However, when I was printing out something last night I was told that the QBR would start by 2AM.
I know it’s an advantage on my part but I just wish I was informed. I know that the meeting was short noticed but an email notifying the schedule of the presentation is very much appreciated.
Oh well, if only I have audio conferencing service at home I would’ve asked permission to join in the Business Review at the comfort of my own room.
Anyway, I am not complaining. I’m just trying to voice our or share that what just happened last night adds up to the stress on this very exhausting month and week. My to-do list is piling up and I have lots of pending that I don’t know which one to prioritize.
Still, I am thankful that I have this job. I just hope one day that I can move on.
