My 1st Night

   This is my  first night where I am away from my bed as well as my Khuoopie in my own country. [Deep sigh] Indeed I’m beginning to like it and would have my daily routine during night then… It’s kinda different when you are working at night while the whole city is asleep while sleeping while the whole city is awake. Sounds like creature of the night huh… ha..ha..ha… but anyhows the stress is indeed different as well… I think it is much stressful during graveyard shifts than working on the normal working day…. Were quite loaded today of packages from different flights… the supposed to be flights is only five but added of another one coming from Singapore…. We are in a hurry to asses documentations as well as in correcting needed details for customs processing… whewww indeed my 1st graveyard shift is memorable… I don’t feel hungry because of the scheduled time of my eating I guess though I have this kind of work before way back when I was in college…while doing a correspondence in a morning paper and doing an on-the-job-training as a disc jockey in a radio station… hollaa… but that was so long ago and now I am up by those hours …. I have with me is Gladys, Brix and Raymond…. you’ll be amazed how serious the four of us while doing our job… no one is talking, everybody is so quiet, focused and indeed try to beat the deadline for the submission… I am laughing while glancing to the three of them… I can’t help it… I’m a noisy person so you guess right, that I am the only one talking and my voice filled the whole floor….just like before, I remember my voice filled the whole city at night when I’m doing the evening announcements and reading the dedications before playing the requested songs… those were the days… and now as I sat on my station looking through the window seeing the whole Makati City I just let go of a smile because this is another chapter of my life… Graveyard shifts Sucks… but I learned to love it…. Right now I’m learning to like and love it… just like before….

   I did have a good weekend… I was chosen to be a godmother of baby Isaac Nicholai youngest son of my church mate… I embraced him after the Sunday service and I felt joy seeing that little face shows innocence that brought joy into my heart… I know someday I’ll be a mom too and that “Patiently I’ll Wait”… hmmmpppppp….. My youth counselor congratulate me for a job well done given to me… I told him that to God be the praises and glory… I am only a channel being used for it… what else… I cannot sleep well… I don’t know why? Perhaps because I was too excited on my new working schedule… “My Night Life”…. I know it will be kinda hard but I will like it later on…. And also my day off is different now… I will be having my day off during weekdays so it means that I will not be able to showed up to my church during Sundays… Actually Sunday is my life… for the many years I stayed in my company I always see to it that my off would be Sunday because it is the only day I spend with my whole family, my church mate, and my youth group…. I remember what my Manong told me that I could do praise God even not in a Sunday which is the way I was brought up with… I could attend service during weekdays as well.. that I don’t have to limit my self that it must to be Sundays only… I understand… I fully understand… I would not missed meaty service as well because it’s just soooo the same… the difference is the day itself only… but the service, the heart that will worship it will just be the same… Praise God I am already prepared for that….. Actually I miss my Manong and I am praying to the Lord that somehow, somewhere, someday I’ll see him and also I miss Manang as well… I hope I could still see her again but the probability of seeing her on my own would be too difficult now… My sister who used to live in Baguio decided to work here in Mnaila again… [Deep sigh] after my sister’s vacation there (my other siblings I mean) she decided to work here in the city because she misses home to badly… hayyy “Homesick Baby”…. But anyhow, let your will be done oh Lord… and that I pray in Jesus name… Amen….

It's Friday La...

      My OSPR job gave me a bit headached la... Now I know that it's indeed critical sometimes on how to asses dox in the customs... and you know what (deep sigh) shpr don't know how to fill up proper infos that is supposed to be in the dox as well as the address of the cnee... Oh my!... it gave us a hard time to fix this kind of errors everyday by the OSPR teams... why in the world most of the shipper is like that? They will give address and only the City name is there. Could you imagine no exact address just only Sydney? Hollaaa... Sydney is a very huge state la.... where the hell in Sydney?.....he..he..he... and also I believed that, it is a Fedex policy that we do not accept PO box address... most especially to Au... but guess what? I did have to fixed 150 PO Box Addresses today that's why I haven't have the chance to write earlier... but anyways I kinda beginning to like my job so far... It's almost a week now that I am doing this job of mine... Let me tell you from talking now into serious silence... my colleagues told me everytime that they will passed by beside THAT I AM "SO SERIOUS!" Ha..ha..ha.. Forgot to mention that I'm one of the most outspoken on the floor before that is why they can't believed in surprise be shut up for the longest possible time ever...

   I engraved a letter to a friend today remembering some of my funny memories in Malaysia, I have this friend who love to bugged me let me share some parts of my letter...

   Got a mail from Avin, it was toooo long I'm telling you... he's mail made me smile and easen the stress that I have for today la... Indeed stories of friends from distant shore made my day complete... I re-read his e-mail 3 times today just to get of the exhustion that I'm feeling... It made me smiled most especially when he mentioned my "Khuoopie" la... and my elmo la... Told him that I gave my Elmo to my younger sister. Actually I tried several times in replacing my Teddy Bear "Khuoopie" but I can't find any bear that could replace him. I have that little stuff toy with me for the longest possible time immemorial..he..he."Khuoopie" is too old already, he undergone so many washes and surgery..ha.ha. though I received so many stuff toys mostly huge one's that small teddy bear, I cannot sleep without is still my number one la... I remember what you told the group about that bear... because I used to hold that in my fist close to my heart or to my face... ha..ha..ha... that bear is for wiping my saliva while sleeping la.... "Bad Dev!"... ha..ha..ha.. now everytime before I sleep and have that teddy with me, it reminds me of you now la!

    Funny me.... I miss those friends so much... and receiving mails from any of my friends indeed lighten up my day ... It's Friday....hooorrrrrayyy, hoooorrrrayyyyy, yipppeyyy, yipppeeeyyyyy it only means to say that I have my weekends to rest and to relax... I need your prayers, I'll be leading the congregation to the praise & worship service this coming Sunday... I'll do my best and let God do the rest...

    Father give me a heart of worship and let my soul glorifies you and you alone... let my lips and my voice sing to you, let my feet dance in the joyful song that I'll be singing to you.... Lord my heart cries out glory to my King my greatest love in life, I hand you everything,  glory... glory I hear the angels sing... be upon me Lord and let me praise and give worship to you oh my God.... Amen...

Stressful Thursday

   Whaaaaaat a day!.... wheeewwwww.... quite busy indeed. I just finished doing  my OSPR job and I am learning to like it though... I learned alot today from that job... sometimes it is really critical in assesing documents for customs, you have to know thier real value, the real item description as well as the quantity, it's weigh and declared value... there are some shippers who until now don't know how to fill out forms and can't give right and exact location and address of their consignee which is supposed to be... sigh... hayyy... with this kind of infos in the package documentation it gives us really a very hard time to sort this out... well, that is our job to do but to correct all details, ring consignee as well as the shipper to double check information....

   I received mails from friends today, reading those mails uplift me and easen the stress that I'm feeling. Their stories from the distant shore brings me closer to them... A dear friend of mine wrote me the other day saying "Life is a Shit!"... I wrote back and gave him my thoughts about what life is for me.....let me share it with you.....

Subject: Dropping by to say "HI"    

      Received mail from you... hollahhhh.... replying on your letter... my new job is so so easy... LOL..."No Sweat"... well being a customer agent is indeed an honorable & noble job... may be you ask why? It is because you are dealing with the client, extending to them whatever you could do to help them out about your company's service... and you are not just building a communication but a good and lasting relationship and partnership to meet both ends.. see noble job isn't it?... even though they are screaming at you, cursing you, yelling at you and even stepped on you, you still manage to serve them with smile and giving them the very best that you could do which what we called an extendted customer service which is our goal to do the extra mile beyond ..  

      Now let me tell you, that your job is not "JUST" a customer service agent... it's not an easy job... and don't tell me that "Life is like a shit"... I personally do not believe on that... life for me is the very best thing that I could have.... Of course there are times that we went into hardships and trials and you wanted to give up, yet there is always hope for a better tomorrow... there is always reasons to live.. reasons that kept me going to look forward... reasons to keep me smile,  reasons to make me strong and of course reasons to make me happy... Dev, alot of reasons is there... you just have to look around you to see what reasons are those...Now see, I learned to appreaciate life which I almost ended last 2003... If I died way back then, I may not come to know you... I may not come to know Avin & Anand and of course the beautiful Malaysia... I will not be able to write this because I look "life like a piece of shit" way back then....But I did not loose hope... I love life now... I enjoy life as free flowing... we only live once and that I have to live life to the fullest...   
   
   Well.. well.. well... hope I haven't given you a hard time reading my mail to you.. too long isn't?... and I do apologized if I sounded like a preacher again... I know how you hated it.. I'm just saying my opinion about things... so bye for now...


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

   I believed that what we have right now is a chance.... another chance to improve and be better, to finished what has been started, to say unspoken words to be heard, to do things that we have to, to move forward and not to waste chances that we have for the rest of the day because "Tomorrow is not a promise but a chance".... I learned somethings and still wanting to learn more because for me everyday is a learning process and my everyday spent here on this earth is a preparation of my new life in the presence of the Father.... I will be living once and there is no 2nd chance and if I wasted that chance i know I cannot bring it back just like before.... that is why I treasured every moment spent with my life.... I don't want to have idle moments because I want productivity and I believed it is what the Lord wants from me as well, that in everything that I am doing will be done for God's glory.....
 

   Dear Papa Jesus,

   Let me praise you for this life that you have given me. I thanked you Papa that you let me have another chance to improve and be better, a chance to share your glory to others and to let your presence be known to people that I worked with everyday... Thank you for that chance... I know that there are times I did failed you and done things on my own free will, forgive me Papa... I let you handle my life and be God that I may not do my own will but letting Yours be done into my life.. give me a heart to follow you as always Father and give me an undivided heart... You are my joy and my ultimate reward and that Papa be upon me as always... Touch the hearts of my friends and let your presence be known to them in one way or another.... Thank you so much for everything and with great joy Papa I am lifting all of this in Your Name.... Amen.....
