CON TE PARTIRO

            Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

CON TE PATIRO (TIME TO SAY GOODBYE) by Andrea Boccelli –  I first heard of this song at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas some 8 years ago. I was 23 years old then and knew nothing about the song but fell in love with its melody.  The fountain in front of that luxurious hotel was dancing to this tune every 15 minutes.  Words are not enough to describe how one can feel seeing and experiencing the moment. Every tune of the song was properly synchronized with the movement of the fountain. It was amazing.

This song’s title aptly labels my last blog for the year 2007…

CON TE PARTIRO…. TIME TO SAY GOODBYE to a number of  things. Some people have a wish list or a New Year’s Resolutions list just before the start of a new year.  Mine is a bit variation of sort.  I’d lke to bid good bye to some things and welcome the new year with a fresh start ( I HOPE ! SO HELP ME GOD ! ). 

Here’s my list.  CON TE PARTIRO to :

[1]  The past year that brought us blessings especially good health.

[2]  Negative thoughts.  It’s time to be OPTIMITISTIC inspite and despite of all things.

[3]  Some old ways that won’t contribute to the my own personal improvement.

[4]  Hassles, problems, worries. I plan to relax and take most things easy at a more controlled pace this new year and the days ahead.

[5] Being IMPATIENT.  If there’s one VIRTUE that I would like to be in my system every minute till I breathe my last, it’s hands down to PATIENCE…( Is there any shop where I can buy one ? I’ll start to save for this if only PATIENCE can be tangible enough to be a commodity but unfortunately NOT ). 

I think it’s HEALTHY for us to realize our ability to change for the better or to challenge ourselves to DO MORE.   I always tell this statement to my nursing students that  "it is never too late for us to improve for the better, and every minute of each day is an opportunity for that improvement." 

And what a better way to start every New Year with goodbyes to negative things for us to welcome with sweet embrace the positive ones… May the good Lord continuously bless us this coming year and for us long as we shall live..

UNSOLICITED ADVICE

A good friend who’s working as a paramedic / nurse in a rig in the middle east brought me back to my senses after feeling dysphoric again inspite of the holidays. He reminded me that whatever earthly riches we acquire will NOT do anything for us to remain forever. TRUE !  Though for many people, money makes the world go round,  it cannot buy us HAPPINESS, FAMILY-TIES, FRIENDSHIP, LOVE and RESPECT.

Giving UNSOLICITED ADVICE and OPINIONS sometimes may hurt not only feelings of others but more so their EGO. 

Was it really a "merry" CHRISTmas for everyone ?

If we find time to honor HIM despite of domestic hassles, financial and emotional difficulties, personal frustrations, and IF WE CAN LEARN TO BE CONTENT and be GRATEFUL with the little BLESSINGS that we receive daily, and if we VALUE VIRTUES and RELATIONSHIPS more than material things, then we may become the HAPPIEST PERSONS this season and the coming years…

WRAPPED by GMASK!

It has been months since I first saw a kiosk of GMASK in Gateway Mall & took a piece of their flyers. I surfed their website and found out that a lot of people already had their gadgets wrapped with GMASK’s colorful, interesting ultra-thin films. Being intuitive as others, I read about it and learned that having gadgets covered with Japan-made thin films does not only render a new image to those gadgets (laptops, cellphones,  iPod, etc.) but more importantly, protection from scratches, sweat, stains and the like. Since I use laptop daily especially at work when I conduct lectures, I think it would be great to have it covered with GMASK.

So last Sunday, Dec 16, I went to their branch at the BLOCK in SM City but the design that I want for my laptop was not available. Luckily, the client-friendly GMASK staff immediately phoned another staff from another branch and asked if they got the wrap that I want. She referred me to Robinson’s Galleria and in less than 20 minutes, I already entrusted my laptop to the very accomodating GMASK staff. The price I paid for was P2995 for the laptop cover and for the laptop wrist pad. And since I wanted my laptop to be hip & funky less the rigid-formal look it has before, I opted to wrapped it with

POP ART.   Here are photos of its new stylish look… plus my own photo with my laptop taken by the staff immediately after the GMASK experience ( and it’s posted in their web page too ! )
