LCSGS87 Meet Up

I’m a Consolinian.  I used to be so early in school just to make sure I won’t be saying the Morning Offering , singing the National Anthem and reciting the Panatang Makabayan beside our security guard Navarette while Mang Margarito had already grab my bag to deliver it to our classroom.  I used to know all the prayer for the saints of whatever  section I belong to. I used to pray the Novena by heart even without looking at the booklet.  I used to be a member of COM (Children of Mary) and wore that pink medal.  I used to participate in the Bible Reading every Monday.   I used to own the 2 songbooks He Who Sings Well Prays Twice Volume 1 (Red) and Volume 2 (Green).

Yes,  all that was the reason why I have this very strong spiritual foundation.  An Augustinian Sisters influence which made me thought one time to become a nun myself but was discouraged.

(Bakit kaya? :D )

Anyway, what made me reminisce my Consolininan days was because of the recent meet up with some of my Grade school classmates.

January 17, 2010 At Jack’s Loft

Nikki, Fidelis, Norman and Michael Joy happend to be in town.  Jenny and Cecille also made it and of course the 3 Single Ladies are always present —  me, Maita and Liza.  :D

January 19,2010 At Yoohoo Bar

Since Ray Victor was not able to make  it on the first meet up, we scheduled another for him and we were glad to see JV as well.

Seeing my grade school classmates was fun and full of laughter especially having MJ and JV around.

We are planning an LCSGS87 meet up soon and everyone looks forward to that.


2010 Miriam High School Family Day

The first event of the year for us is the 2010 Miriam High School Family Day held this morning at MCHS 2/F Cafetorium with the theme “Batch Friends Forever”.

Registration started at 8:00AM followed by a Holy Mass officiated by Fr. Jesus Ritchie Santos, SDB. The highlight of the activity is the Amazing Race. But for me, like the usual stage mother that I am, Chanel’s band playing was my most awaited activity.

May I present PARALLEL MOTION ….


At the end of it all, I went home a proud mom.

(Shhhhh …. even though I know the last song was not really good. :D )?

2010 Belle de Jour Power Planner

New Year needs a new planner.  And when you say planner, it only means one thing to me — a Belle de Jour.

As early as November, I already ordered my 2010 Belle de Jour but it’s only now that I started to write on them.

It’s only my 2nd BDJ and I would say the 2010 edition have good changes in it.

Here are some of the  2010 BDJ Power Planner features:

1. BDJ Forget-Me-Not Notepad

2. 2010 Goals Page

3.  Dream Board

4.  2010 Checklist

5.  Habit Tracker

6.  Monthly Calendar

7. Monthly Plans

8. Weekly/Daily Plans

Other features include:

a. Menstrual Tracker

b. Health Checklist

c. Vacation Planner

d. Expense Tracker

e. Savings Tracker

f.  Discount Coupons

Though there is an increase in the number of shops with discount coupon, I just feel disappointed that Charles & Keith and Aldo shops were not included this time.

At any rate, I’m still happy and loving  my BDJ.   :)

Welcome 2010!

It’s another New Year and like all other New Years, it was spent with the people that matters.

We didn’t have any fireworks. Only the usual New Year’s eve dinner.

A New Year inspire resolutions and goals.  This year, I only have 2 major goals  in my list that I have to put all focus on.

1.  A stronger market presence for Fivestar

Our company opened amidst the global crisis.  It was risky considering the market situation.  An opportunity was presented and I needed to grab the chance.  And now like all other businesses, it would only be successful as a result of hard work.

2. Weigh Less

I know, I know you’ve heard it before. But this time, I’m taking on a different weightloss plan which I have already started in December.  I just hope that it’s gonna work this time.   :)

So, wish me luck!

Happy New Year to all of us!
