Day 18: Whom do you admire the most?

Aside from being a Papa’s girl, I am also my Manong’s forever girlfriend.
(“Manong” is an Ilonggo’s term for elder brother.)  ^_^

person I admire the most is my brotherWhy do I admire him the most? 

It’s because he is the epitome of an eldest child who would be selfless in order to be the “leader” for his younger siblings.

He is the son whom every parent would be proud of, and every kid would wish to be a brother whom they can grow up with. (I’m lucky I have him!)

Why do I look up to him so much?  Because aside from being a brother who would discipline me during those times my devilish ‘crown’ was growing (hehe), he also became my beast friend whom I share secrets with, who can tell me straight to my face the words that other people just try to sugar-coat to me.  He is my punching bag when I need to release my anger (haha) and the shoulder I lean on when I just want to be comforted.

Hey Pilipinas, mag-invest ka!

With the stock market reaching the 5,000 level, this is just an indicator that the Philippine economy is booming!

My message is for those who wants to get into “investing” but don’t know why.

If you doubt your technical knowledge about stock market and like to take caution, but still want to put your hard-earned money/savings into stock market, try to invest in mutual funds.  Your money will be handled by fund managers, so the only thing you got to do is deposit your money there.

Make plans. Know where you want to go.

The Other Side of Me…

Nobody has asked me, yet, why I am “hiding” behind my nickname, Lyn-Lyn.  How come I don’t tag my real name on every blog entry I wrote? How come I don’t even put on my Facebook page on this website for everyone to like and automatically be my FB friend (this would encourage advertising my blog and get lots of readers)?  No one has asked, so… I won’t even explain why.

Approved Europe Visa, Plus Two French Words

After just 4 days of processing for our Schengen visa (this is what the visa for Europe is called), my passport arrived at my flat with another sticker (I mean, visa) attached to it! Yipeeee…!

No Boundaries by Adam Lambert

I’m randomly listening to my playlist when the song, “No Boundaries” was played.  I think I already heard it somewhere, but it was only at this time when I *really* listened to the lyrics of the song.  And it was really wonderful. It’s so moving and inspiring. :) Check it yourself! \(“,)/


Seconds, hours, so many days
You know what you want but how long can you wait?
Every moment lasts forever
When you feel you lost your way

And what if my chances were already gone?
Started believing that I could be wrong
But you give me one good reason
To fight and never walk away

So here I am, still holding on.

The LIVE Online PICC Feast

I am so blessed by God and always notice that He wakes me up at 3am (my time) Sunday morning, which is approximately 11am Philippine time.  I watched the PICC online feast, with Bo Sanchez as the preacher and the rest of the Light of Jesus community, together with all of the Feast attendees. :)

I feel soooooo ubeeer blessed this morning after “attending” it, and rejoicing dancing and singing with the songs. ^_^  If you are a fellow OFW or someone who is not able to attend the Feast, the link is here.  You can always refer to this link every Sunday. PICC Feast starts every Sunday at 8am and 10:30am Philippine time. (PS: A replay is available if you’re not able to watch it on the scheduled time.)

The Two Skills I Need to Develop

I just need to burst this out before I doze off to sleep.

At work, we are already near the end of the 1st quarter of the year, and it means “interim evaluation” of individual’s performance.  To be honest, I love and hate this stage of the year at the same time.  I love it because you will be constructively evaluated based on your performance – and having the feedbacks of your colleagues will help you develop your work ethics/technical expertise and learn more about how you will be able to provide efficient and effective work output.  At the same time, you will be graded based on this evaluation. 

On the other hand, I hate it because it really requires lots of deeeeep reflection and s-p-e-c-i-f-i-c evaluation of a person and of yourself.  (w/c means English, English and English!) waaaah! [now that’s the immature side of me who’s talking. hehe!]

Here are the two skills that I need to develop:

  • Managing people
  • Effective business language communication

My performance manager wants me to add “technical skills/expertise” – but I guess it’s not really something to dwell too much on.  Technical skills can just be easily learned by spending hours and hours reading books and cases.  Though having the ready answer in a few seconds is quite impressive to the executive directors and other client’s officers, I do not have a goal to be a “walking Accounting Standards dictionary”. [hehe!]

A Letter to My 16 Year Old Self [Day 17]

Dearest Lyn-Lyn,

Greetings of Peace and Prosperity!

This letter comes at your doorsteps from a future time when you will be a decade from now.  Are you excited? I do hope that you will be able to read this before you go march onstage to receive your high school diploma.  I know that at this time, you are in the midst of mixed feelings, altogether.  Sadness that your daily routine will no longer involve the friends and classmates you’ve grown up with since you were 7 years old;  Excitement for the college years of meeting new people from all other places and from different schools; and  Curiosity for a life that will just be few steps away from being a teenager and a few steps closer to being a matured woman.


Day 16: What do people notice about you?

It’s always my….

Be Inspired

Inspiration does not come from the HOW;
…it comes from the WHY.

Day 15: What do you dislike most about yourself?

I’m back!  And I need to really really catch up with my 30-day blog entries.

I dislike my hasta mañana habit. :’(  I have tendencies to put some stuffs to “tomorrow”, when I know I can also do them today.  Example, just this afternoon, I could have finished one report, but laziness struck me and I told myself that I will just do it tomorrow. *twoinks*
