CONSTRUCT YOUR WORK

img_1568

When you’re complaining about your work while sitting in the office or just feeling bored, Just think of those people who worked outside tolerating the heat and dusty surroundings.

Don’t you think you are lucky than them?

Don’t you appreciate what you have right now?

Construct your thoughts and think about it – again.

YOU WILL MISS THEM

I know one day, you will miss them.

You’re going to miss their deafening loudness and innocence hassles and the peak of their dirty shirts and countless toys.

You will miss them in your room while hanging out, watching you dress and crying out loud.

Soon you will miss them when they grow up and you get the break you want.

You will miss them needing you all the time because they’ll find comforts with friends or other people whom they liked.

You’re going to miss everything because when they own their freedom, you didn’t own their time.

So while still possible, enjoy their childhood and bear the hardship. Never say “hope you will grow up fast” because surely, one day, you will miss them, you will miss your little ones.

 

 

 

YES, I DO!

Someone proposed to me!

I don’t know why this kid suddenly grab the plastic flowers and kneel down in front of me. I was smiling and said yes, I do. I bet he was watching some TV drama and tend to imitate it. Ha-ha. He was so cute. I told him to kneel down for a while so I can take pictures for our cute memory and he listened.

MAD without YOU

“Sometimes you are mad at me. Sometimes I’m mad at you.  But we still enjoy being the perfect mother-daughter pair because we would go mad, without each other.”

HAPPINESS IS…

Ahjussi

“I have an Ahjussi.

When I see the Ahjussi, I’d feel… how do I describe the feeling?

Like a warm blanket, like the morning sun.

You know what I mean?

And someone else is… a little hated but still okay.

His personality is very annoying, but he’s not a bad person.

Sometimes I like him, but sometimes I don’t.”

He is a good friend, I can never ask for more.

Father and Son

FRENEMIES

Image

Be careful with this kind of scam.  People pretending to be your friend, people making you believe that they are the ones who is available all the time, people who delight in your miseries, use you for whatever you can give them, people who seems there to help you, but the truth is,  they just like to gossip about you. They are called FRENEMIES.

I believed that life is too short to be surrounded with people who don’t really care about us, and if you discover that you have frenemies, deal and put it in perspective and move on. There are too many good people in the world to waste spending your time on the ones who aren’t.

Time Will Come

New York is 3 hrs ahead of California but it does not mean that California is slow, or that New York is fast. Both are  working based on their own “Time Zone.”

Someone is still single. Someone got married and waited 10 yrs before having a child, there is another who had a baby within a year of marriage.

Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a good job; and there is another who graduated at 27 and secured employment immediately.

Someone became CEO at 25 and died at 50 while another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years.

Everyone works based on their ‘Time Zone’.

People can have things worked out only according to their pace. You just have to work in your “time zone”.

Your Colleagues, friends, younger ones might “seem” to go ahead of you. Maybe some might “seem” behind you.

Don’t envy them or mock them, it’s their ‘Time Zone.’  You are in yours!

Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good. You’re not late. You are not early. You are very much On time.”

SIBLINGS.

IMG_1476

“I am the brother of her
And she is my sister.
She is too little for us
To talk to each other.

So every morning I show her
My truck and my book;
But every morning she still is
Too little to look.”

(Dorothy Aldis)

 

She said “YES”

She said “yes” and I was happy.

I met Weng four years ago.  I was the one who interviewed and recommended her to be my junior.  What I like about her was not from her curriculum vitae, but the way she presented herself to learn and willingness to be a great help.  I’m pretty sure that’s more important than a degree.

Anyway, our relationship was more than a senior and junior thing. We became friends outside and allies at work. I have known almost of her secrets and handle them with indulgence, though I was a little bit cautious of my own, but later, I have learned to trust her.

Weng have entered into a complicated love affair. I was there to listen and disagree, but then I found myself comforting her all along. It’s always been my intention to remind her not to waste her young life over unsecured relationship, but love is an uncontrollable beast, who would listen when you are selfish enough of your feelings?

Surely she has gone into a lot of hardship than happiness. She was walking beheaded from gossip, more controversy as I expected and silent eyes out of sympathy she suffered from others.  I asked her when it would end, and she replied me after she’ll get tired of everything.

After the rain pours and the storm has beaten, she finally let go. After the flowers withered and died, another one blossomed with sweet scents.

She finally found someone who flutters air and sea just to be with her. Someone who really doesn’t care of what she have done in her past. Someone who can offer her a life of good possibilities.

She’s getting married!

I know she was happy and thrilled for her new life, and so I am.

She gave us message that a true and intimate prayer will lead you to the right way, to the right people and the right decision.

Cheers!!

Out of love

I love my mom,

Though we always fought,
Disagree of many things,
Always beat me to humiliate,
Weaken me to accept my mistake.

I still love my mom,

Despite of my feeble hatred,
when I was young.
The feelings of not being adored,
when she mumbled hurtful words.

I love my mom,

What I have realized behind,
so many reasons I think about.
The argue, the scold, the spank
it was out of love and not her lack.

Why I haven’t noticed it? Simply because they were both comfortable and still took me to my direction.

Art of War

“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him.

If he is in superior strength, evade him.

If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him.

Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.

If he is taking his ease, give him no rest.

If his forces are united, separate them.

If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them.

Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected .”

Truly wonderful the pure smile of a child is.

I am just a kid.

My five years old godchild (jevon) drew this out of his furry and being unhappy to his mom for not letting him play the smart phone.

Is it really impossible to tell someone what we really feel instead of keeping or ignoring until it aches so badly? 

This kid is better than me.

 

Jubilant

Some couple dream of big house
Or a brand new car,
Some hope for stable job
or more money in their banks.

One couple’s dream of nothing else
Not a pride, but a child
A room with crib and a cradle,
Clothes and toys inside.

Their prayers have been answered
Nothing to be feared anymore,
But only gladness and excitement
Rejoice their heart to the Lord!

Kuya

IMG_8891

This is Kuya. He believes that Filipinos are hardworking and responsible. He secretly told me to deduct one day salary to our receptionist (other nationality) because she was always late and he didn’t like it. He said he wanted to replace her with a Filipino because they (we) are good and pleasant.

Today, Kuya is absent because he is sick. Without him, the kitchen is messy. Everybody is going to the pantry to make their own coffee and washing their own cups. I made one too early this morning, and it never tastes as refined as Kuya made it.

When he is absent, no one dare to be furious about it. He might be feeling drained at times because every day he woke up at 4am and take off by 11pm. Sometimes, I caught him drifting to sleep in the kitchen, I told him just to continue, really I don’t mind.

He’s been working in our company for long years as a tea boy and sometimes a bank messenger.  I never heard him complaining about his work so far and he never failed to do his own too.

I think he is more hardworking than us, I couldn’t even stand waking up every day at 4.
