I had my new employee orientation today - and it went pretty well actually. It was just that I was in the office before 10AM and went home like 1AM the following day.
Actually the NEO ended at around 4:30 PM. Our new managers asked us to stay from 9PM till 12MN for a short meet and greet. It was fine with me actually. I know I'll be on the night shift the following day so I have no trouble of staying up late. :)
I get to meet new Tech Leads this day and get to know a bit of what I'll be supporting.
Believe me, I never felt so scared and pressured like what I'm feeling right now.
Happy Blogging!! :)

aahhhhhhhhh, just like i predicted - oh well, maybe just for today.
i thought, since i applied for a terminal leave, i'll be home alone all week , doing nothing but REST. but nope, blame the heat, the beach planning and blame mama for wanting another washing machine that's why my sister and I had to go out everyday - hahaha. :) joke lang :p
anyway, today is a bit nice because i stayed home. ahhhhhh, just like i wanted it. i was able to enjoy this movie from HBO -Les Miserables. i must admit, i've never read the book yet but i remember, when i was in college, i borrowed the book from the library. it was written by victor hugo, a white thick one. the movie was nice, not so old but the setting is. i thought - if i've read the book, it'll even be more nice.
Les Miserables is a 1998 movie:
A sweeping epic of love, honor and obsession played out against the tumultuous backdrop of early 19th century France. Starring: Uma Thurman, Geoffrey Rush, Liam Neeson" Set in the tumultuous backdrop of early 19th century France, this epic story tells the tale of Jean Valjean, whose theft of a loaf of bread condemns him to an unjust prison sentence. Leading a life on the run, Valjean falls in love with the beautiful Fantine and devotes himself to caring for Fantine and her daughter, Cosette. All the while, Valjean is hunted by Javert, a policeman whose lifelong search for Valjean has turned into an obsession. When Cosette's lover, Marius, faces death in the bloody 1832 revolution, Valjean rescues him, forcing a final, decisive confrontation with Javert.(HBO ASIA).
i'm happy to have seen the movie. :)
i hope to finish reading:
- memoirs of a geisha (i've read its PDF version but i know i wasn't able to finish it because i can't remember the ending)
- book 6 of Vampire Chronicles (haaaay, can't really sit down and continue reading. i find the plot a bit boring compared to book 5, i know - hehe, sorry. maybe its just me and not really the book - after all)

and because of that, it was a good excuse to go and check out summer finds at malls. :) hehe, and because i don't wear swimsuits and things like that, i tried looking for some other fab finds. but it was simply hot outside, kae and i couldn't continue our window shopping without a drink on hand, even if its' centralized airconditioned inside malls. whew. okay, at the end of the day, i got myself a shorts from maui and sons (class A) from tutuban of course :), a spongebob shorts for marvin which he really wanted.
on the other side of the story, mama wants to have a new washing machine because the old one that we have has been running for close to ten years - hahhaha, it needs replacement na. :) so we bought one and a new stand fan for me.
haaaaaaaay, the day ended with tired feet. had to sleep, rest and apply ointment to my legs.
Mar 25, 2008
anyway, this is a good excuse to go out and start malling :wink: hehe. window shopping and all. so kae and i headed to san lazaro - the closest mall to us ever. we just went there to have some refreshements, hehe at magpalamig.
oh, i paid my bills today too - parang dumaan lang sa kamay - tapos wala na. :p

after watsons, i'm supposed to grab something to eat but i couldn't really tell what my stomach wants. suddenly i saw SUBWAY. hehe, babaw noh. when i saw my co-trainer with subway on his table, i can't help myself - i want one din. so i walked straight to subway with smiles on my face and whoah, satisfied to the max. when i was walking towards the office, kahit mabigat ung dala ko - all smiles pa ren ako. Subway is one of the few that I really like. haaaaaaaaaaay. Sorry - since, I'm only in an internet shop, I'll post the picture soon. :)

i have work this saturday but i was off yesterday (friday). i woke up mga 1AM today - as in and then never had sleep na, haaaaaaaaaaay. kaloka na talaga sleep pattern ko. anyway, i have to meet up with marvin since nagpapasama sya sa greenhills dahil me bibilhin daw sya. have to bring all my things with me para diretso na ko ng office kahit mga 7PM pa shift ko. we met mga 10am - and headed to a resto to eat. originally he wanted chinese food - haaay, sa isip isip ko - na naman. it wasnt even preplanned - nakita ko lang ung italianni's and i have never dined there before - so ayun, end result - napakain kami. hahaha. i was verrrrrrry satisfied. happy birthday ulet hon.
mga 1am - off to office na ko. i thought makakatulog pa ko before my shift - sus, ung mga to-do ko natapos na ng mga past 6PM - so puyat ang lola mo. but i'm satisfied, all my 'to-print' have been completed. :)
Mar 12, 2008

It's just time to wake up and go to mass. I hurriedly went down from bed, ate and took a bath. We caught the 6Pm mass then headed to SM for some stuff that I have to buy as I'm preparing my requirements for my new job. i got an 8gig flash disk for less than 1500 - hahaha - cdr king's the best - lavit! i'm hoping the company gives me a lappy - hahaha, as most of the staff in the company has - it'll be nice to have one too :wink: considering i've been looking for one for some time now. :)
kung nababasa mo to - i hope everything's well. please balitaan mo naman ako./ kami. i'll catch up with you if i have spare time na - sorry, dami ko na utang na meeting with the rest of the remyxx. but you're in my prayers - love yah.
Sorry - when everything's settled, I promise to visit you at your new place - shees, how exciting :)
GOD BLESS US ALL
Anyway, I reported for work today because I was off last Wednesday. Not tiring at all considering walang pressure pag weekend shift. Pero nakakapagod kasi umalis ako last wednesday for my final interview so technically wala akong pahinga and still irregular ang sleep ko.
Can't stop thinking of my new job - hehehe.
Mar 7, 2008
my prayers and hard work resulted in success. finally, i signed the job offer that GXS has given me. it wasn't the same amount as i was asking but it was fair enough considering the OT pay, the reimbusible benefits i am provided with, the bonuses, perks and all - not to mention that i am the first ever local trainer of the company.
it was Friday around 8PM when i want back, for the fourth time!, at RCBC. went straight to 36th floor and prayed for the best while expecting worst. I was automatically greeted by ms. ever friendly carol and laid down the job offer. Right at the moment when she mentioned the salary - I've made up my mind - i'm signing. When she mentioned the other perks and benefits, it made me more interested though i had to read the contract all throughout. i kept texting mama, kuya and marvin na i'm signing na pero walang signal that time - so un, i kept the good news all to myself. hindi ako naexcite and all - kasi di ko naman lam difference ng perks nila although i can tell from the amount that its even triple from what i'm getting now. hanggang nung matapos ung signing - parang malamya pa ren ako - maybe lack of sleep. hahahaa!
after the contract signing, i immediately called marvin and texted mama. hay - head to work after.
the only thought that's running in my head - i am contented. i am thankful. i am still blessed. :)
i'm currently polishing my requirements para complete ang transition. i'm excited, happy, contented, anxious-nervous with all that's in store for me.
Best of Luck!

i just got home about 2 hours ago, came from a night interview. it was all well and good. according to the manager who interviewed me, my facilitation and presentation skills were impressive. So setting of expectations, objectives, short and long terms goals kung makukuha ako for the job.
i am so into this company and into this position that i think my skills overall will definitely grow more. i am positive that this experience will mean positive achievement and more remarking accomplishment in my career. the only drawback, they find the salary that i'm asking a bit too high. uhmmm, eto na nga ba dilemma ko from a BPO company transferring to another random company other than Call Center. The decision of movement happened because of growth in career and monetary benefits that may come with it. The way i see this prospect job - it'll be a hell of a challenge, and yet hindi ka compensated well enough? Mali pa nga ata term ko because their benefits package daw is good, it's the basic na medyo hindi abot sa expectations. hindi naman ako naghahangad "pa" hahaha ng 3-digit salary --- sabi nga nila, "if much is given, much is expected" -- parang in this case, this is what is given but much is expected. but i so like the job - feeling ko super magiging hard work talaga to that will test my skills, aptitude, abilities, my potential to overcome 'any' challenges that may arise. pero parang hard work lang, pano ung pay off for a job well done?
hehehe - assuming naman ako. di pa naman binibigay saken ung trabaho. and wala pang job offer, but in case they negotiate with me, ano gagawin ko. i want to take the job and i want to have my asking salary - di nga yon mashadong mataas eh. :(
Lord, just clear my head with all the questions - i just want to see where you want me to be so i can go there. sorry for asking so much. pag future na talaga pinaguusapan, i don't want to jump at once.
hindi na tayo bumabata - i had to step up and work harder to become better in all aspects. bless me please.
Mar 5, 2008
I just thank GOD for the many reasons to be thankful for - my health, my family, my friends, marvin, the everyday blessings, to GOD for his being merciful, patient and understanding despite my shortcomings.
I couldn't GLORIFY you LORD more than my whole being. I offer you every goodness I have in my heart. Thank you for the LIFE.

today is my presentation day. i am very very very nervous. considering nagahol ako sa pagbuo ng iprepresent ko. i was told that i might have 5 people in my panel today, so goodluck saken. armed with nothing but prayers, i went straight to makati. i came a bit earlier pa nga than expected. i'm for 7PM but i was there ar about 6PM - always early! (nice habit) anyway, carol from the recruitment team was very nice to accomodate me and show me around. finger print naman ang main door entrance nila, nakakaloka talaga. i was really dead impressed with the simplicity and sleekness of the office. all positions except for agent support staff are on laptops -
nice! anyway, i liked to think that I did well on the presentation - pero i'm not sure of course. the american who interviewed me and watched my presentation was very nice. it was about 8:30 nung matapos ako. tatawagan na lang daw ako either i got the job or not.
at kahit puyat, sige, pasok pa ren.
i thank the lord because i pulled everything through with grace. thank you thank you
thank you. :)
