We held the leveling event for the company volleyball tournament. It was fun. And I definitely learned that a lot of employees are very interested in playing volleyball! We are now planning on forming a volleyball club for the company where we can play on a regular basis!
That’s me trying to be a setter, by the way.

Welcome me back, work!
I am honestly having a hard time focusing on work because of the awesomeness of the last trip I had. What helped me was that I needed to move workstations. I am now in the open.
I may have gotten my second wind.
I do not know and I am not sure.
It has only been a week and and maybe it was just a thing of the moment.
I am looking forward to better days at work.
I’m gonna rest this Sunday and do better at work tomorrow.
Taken at: 9th Street in Taguig City, Philippines
It was 2:30 PM. I was in work mode when my boss asked me to attend a meeting for her.
The details were:
- Time: 3:00 PM
- Venue: NAC Center in BGC
You’d think that it’s just a nearby building. But, no. It’s in a completely different city with traffic that could really bring you to the gates of hell.
But, anyway, the gods were in my favor and I was able to make it on time.
On my way home, I contemplated that it would be really nice to work in BGC. The area is totally friendly to corporate workers. There’s a plethora of entertainment and dining options.
The only catch is, it’s very far from home. And with our traffic conditions, I don’t want to experience hell twice every day.

Today we went to the Balanga Wetlands to plant mangrove seedlings as part of our company’s social corporate responsibility.
We were a little late and the tide was already high. People were a little hesitant in going to the water. Plus, we were warned that we’ll be stepping on mud instead of sand.
Since we were already there, I decided to just go for it especially when I brought extra clothes.
Mangroves are essential to any seaside community because they (1) provide a safe breeding habitat for some species, (2) filter pollutants from run-off, and (3) prevent seaside erosion.
I’m glad to have been part of this activity!
This weekend was one for the books. It was definitely tiring but it was also a great way to bring myself back on track.
We didn’t have class last time. The teacher had to attend to something. Without the class, it seemed like a part of me was missing. This weekend, we learned about asking where something is and some activities like (to go and to do). I am actually learning a lot and watching Korean dramas have become easier.
Hoping that I will get good grades so I can continue on to the next module.
Volleyball at Home Court Gym
My teammates and I scheduled a reunion game. It was 2 years since we all played together and the company one-day league prompted us to want to play with each other again. It was full of fun and I was actually more tired from laughing rather than from the play itself.
It was a (sort of) goodbye game for one of our teammates who’s going to Canade for post-grad studies. I hope that she will be successful in this endeavor.
MMVL Off-Season Tournament
Although we lost, it was still a good game for us. The scores were 26-24 and 26-24. If only we had more fight in us, we could have ended the first set easily. It was a learning experience, definitely. It was also the first time played together so it was like testing the waters.
I am hoping that we will fare better, and win the game, the next time around.
With all that’s happened this weekend, am I ready for Monday? The first order of business tomorrow is to write down everything that I have to do for the week.
AJA. AJA. Fighting.

Today is the start of a week-long training for a disaster assessment system. It should be helpful especially now that we are more vulnerable to disaster and incidents like never before.
