Hello and Mabuhay 2016!

Oo na Ate Charo, one year backlog posts + 6 months pa more. Ako na ang wagi sa pagiging busy sa buhay (at procrastination sa blogging lols). :p

hello

Wat to do yani? While doing the Egypt trip series, uwi pala kami the following month, kaya ayun, natabunan na naman tayo ng mga listahan at gawain. Excuses, excuses. :p

Pero no regrets naman, as the past months we’ve been busy/productive, chos.

Infernez, may kasiyahan sa pagiging busy-busyhan.😉🙂🙂🙂

Good Morning from Fairmont Heliopolis! At dahil maagang natulog, maaga rin ang gising. Gora na agad kami mag-almusal bago i-explore ang hotel na itey na may giant chandeliers sa lobby. Ginalugad namin ang mga facilities nila until makarating kami sa pool side and health club, where we spent our remaining time before prepping up for our flight back to Bahreyn. :)

Gayon Bicol!

Yup Ate Charo, barely 4 months from my prior vacation (Jul-Aug 2013), naswertehang makauwi ulit sa Pinas ng Disyembre. Second Paskong Pinas & New Year’s in a row, woot! Maraming salamat sa Cebu Pac promo fare (DXB-MNL-DXB) & Emirates (BAH-DXB-BAH)  :)

We agreed to spend Christmas in my hometown – Malasiqui, Pangasinan while New Year’s in Buboy’s place – Viga, Catanduanes. Hindi pa ako nakakarating sa Region 5 Ate Charo. Therefore, yalla sa Bicol!🙂

Gayon Bicol!

Gayon Bicol!

A Milestone: CIPS Level 4 completed! ^_^

Sa wakas Ate Charo, after one year of pagsusunog ng kilay and da midnight oil, echos!🙂

After completing the short course in Ethical Procurement in  late May, I’ve since waited for the official results for Level 4 assessment.

At nagbunga naman ang paglalaan ng oras magbasa at magpraktis magsulat ng legible (essay type noh, hindi multiple choice).

CIPS Level 4

CIPS Level 4 –  International Diploma – completed!

And yes, this opens doors for me – I can take up Level 5 and up, or pursue MSC/MBA (indi ko natapos ung MBA ko nung 2007 kasi nga napadpad ako dine sa Bahrain).

Pero i need to finish some other courses / tests first, i.e. IELTS, et al. And op kors, need pa ng full prep para sa wedding namin ni Buboy sa Dec.

Andami kong gustong gawin, so little time. Batman, let’s do this! #Eksoyted

NB: Always remember, a goal without a plan, is just a wish. 🙂🙂🙂
