: Photohunt 168 : Pink (Dress)

Nice to be back here in photohunt, my entry for this week is my kids' photo 3 years ago when we're about to go to our church. I remember making my girls wear their dresses given by their auntie from G.B. and I liked how the colors fit them well, red for Genesis and pink for Ruth well my youngest wouldn't be upstaged by the two so he just put a 'pogi' sign in his chin. By the way for non-Pinoys 'pogi' means handsome or cute!

Vacation at Breezes Resorts

Talk about relaxing and vacationing, for me it’s a wonderful thought! Being a working Mom for several years my vacation includes spending three days vacation in a highland place few hours away from Manila for twice a year. I still want to have a vacation near the beaches but miles away from Manila where I would fly just to be at that place. Here in our country there are a lot of beautiful beach resorts in Boracay, Bohol, Puerto Princesa and some other not so popular places. Philippines are endowed with captivating and scenic places but some are not yet developed.

My SIL loves vacationing too and she has a habit of rounding up vacation resorts around Europe and America that’s totally new to her. She’s living in Great Britain and every time she has a chance she plans for a getaway vacation to relax her body and mind from everyday tension and pressures of her work... Last time I talked to her she told me that she wants an all inclusive resort which offers everything from the beach resorts to comfortable accommodations to fine dining to sports activities. It would really be nice to have a super inclusive package like that and Breezes Resort can do that.

She would like a different vacation this time and she’s thinking of having a vacation where she can have the view of rugged mountains, beaches and coves and can take advantage of the blue waters and richest landscapes in the Caribbean. I told her she can go to Runaway Bay Jamaica where she can enjoy sports activities like golf and tennis or just while away the time viewing all the scenic spots there.

Or she can choose a different destination where she can indulge on exciting water and land sports. It would be fun to do some windsurfing, sailing and water ski or if she’s the type of a land sports enthusiast she could do some table tennis, beach volleyball or even golf. She should choose Bahamas resorts to do all these together with all the amenities and accommodations offered by them. One good thing about all inclusive packages is that the person needs not to worry about other things like food and sports/recreational activities. All of these are available at Breezes Resort and you can visit their site now to plan your dream vacation.


I'll Be a WAHM Soon!

I'm counting my days in my work now as my resignation was approved at last. I've resigned from my job last year in May but was asked by my employer to extend my stay leading my employment to extend up to this time. I've been following up my intended early retirement almost every two months but it was when my Mom suffered temporary blindness that my resignation was considered seriously.

Actually it was a flattering thought that they wouldn't want me to leave my work which lasted for more than sixteen years, I would like to think they like me really that they asked me to think it over and over before deciding finally. My boss even asked me to accept a part-time job of an HR consultant but I told him I can't spare more than two days of my week because my family needed my full time attention now. I was glad that my junior boss allowed me a complete resignation without consultancy or part-time work and just asked me to at least give them a one-month allowance to turn over my work properly.

I would admit I've been losing hope that I will be allowed to resign and my colleagues keep on teasing me that it would take me another year but after my final talk with my senior boss detailing the inner problems I have in my family regarding their need for my full attention my boss understood my situation and accepted my resignation. It was a very happy day for me and though I'm still working and would be in my office for two weeks I can now savor the taste of my freedom from an 8-5 work. By the way I'll still be working but I'll be joining the WAHM work-at-home mommies and will concentrate more on writing in my sites.
