So Proud

Just today my husband told me that he sold an expensive exercise machine at work. Yes, my husband is working at one of the mall for retired military in the US. It was only a part time job but we are thankful because that means to say it will cover some expenses at work. Don’t get me wrong, his pension can still manage us but with his work it would help us more for his ticket to us. He doesn’t have any commission for the sells he made but he said it felt good to fulfill something at work. I am so proud of his accomplishment today. We are struggling everyday but we make sure we will be able to overcome it. Yes, money can do so much to us but the family is always our priority that is why we are working so hard for them. To my husband, congratulations!

The Face Of Darkness

We were in my doctor’s office that time when one of my workmates broke us the news that the NCCC Mall was on fire. After clinic, when I and Mj passed by, we only saw a little smoke but we heard something fell already from the 3rd floor. We were already in another mall when I realized that my niece Moreen is working in SSI, their floor is just on top of that mall. The fire started at 9:30 in the morning and Moreen usually logs out at 11:00 in the morning. I hurriedly bought a credit for my phone; I slowly dial my sister’s number, Moreen’s Mom and asked her how’s Moreen. She then said that my niece is in the bedroom and was sleeping; I breathe right away and told her about the mall. She called her daughter right away and later she replied her workmates that she is safe and fine. Later, we heard that there were 37 agents who were trapped, the next day they were already 38.

All of them died in that tragedy, no one was able to escape from the fire of death. I can’t help but felt aggravated, eventhough I don’t know anyone there but knowing that we were on the same field, I also felt cheated. I could not contain my frustration when I learned that it was already hopeless to rescue them until now I still have questions, what, why and how? Most of them are so young, full of dreams; some are still in college, juggling themselves for work and school. I could not imagine their parents depression, seeing the building burned down.



Until now whenever I passed by this area, the face of darkness, despair and sorrow seemed like a doom covering the whole area. This building is just so near to where I am currently working. There are times that I accidentally utter the name of the mall whenever the Jeepney driver asked where will I go that my daughter keeps on poking my shoulder, reminding me that the mall is gone, my favorite mall is vanished together with those agents who were working at that time and was so excited to log out because it’s almost Christmas. I am moving on but I know those agents could not, their parents could not, their family could not. Everyone will just look at this building, reminiscing the memories, their tambay spot in the foodcourt, the wide grocery, the varieties of clothes and bags and all that stuff. But I know some of us will show hatred and deranged to this mall. I could not blame them.

My condolence to the family of the victim. You are always in my prayer that whoever is responsible to the fire should answer this. But if in case, if the one who did this can run away, we may always have injustices in this world but to HIM we are fair, I know somehow that person will still pay.

On the other hand, to this mall that I always run to whenever I need some things for my kids, when I don’t have frozen foods to cook at home, when I feel like roaming around, eating at any fast food store. I will miss you big time NCCC Mall!

The Appeal of Relying on Professional Transportation Services

Traffic in major metro areas can be a challenge on even the slowest of days. When you have somewhere important to be, you may not want to waste time trying to navigate busy roadways. You need to get to your appointment on time and without a second to spare.

Rather than take your own vehicle and risk getting stuck in traffic, you may prefer to let someone else do the driving for you. You can arrive on time and in style when you opt for a professional driver, chauffeured car, or Chicago wedding limo rental today.

Getting Past Traffic Nightmares

You have enough to worry about on your wedding day without wondering if you are going to get stuck in traffic that day. You want the drive to and from the venue to be as stress-free and simple as possible.

However, Chicago is not known for its clear roadways particularly on the weekends when most people get married. You could end up late to your own wedding even if you leave several hours before the ceremony start time.

When you hire a limousine service, you can arrive on time, however. Professional drivers typically know alternate routes to take to bypass busy highways and city roads. These alternate routes can shave minutes off your drive and get you to the ceremony with time to spare.

Arriving in Comfort and Style

Your wedding outfit may require more room than what your personal car offers. You do not want to stuff your hoop skirts and veil into a sedan, only to arrive to your own wedding with wrinkles and tears in your outfit.

A limousine has enough room for you and your wedding party to get in and out of the vehicle without compromising your clothing. You can rest comfortably in your hoop skirt without the wires riding up to your chest and around your waist. The material of the dress and veil will remain unscathed and look stylish when you climb out of the limo.

Limos are in high demand during wedding season each year, which is why you might want to make a reservation now. You can find available times and select the dates that work best with your calendar by going to the company’s website. You can plan your entire wedding around the fact that you will have a professional driver taking you to and from the venue that day.

First Stop In Buda: Alice Log House

We had been planning for a team building last month and I thought it will not be pushed through since there’s one who was against it. However, we were able to make it through even without that team mate.

My workmate and coach went there first since I just have followed them because I have to attend youngest daughter. It was their Christmas Party that day so I have to send her over first. I also left some money for them so they can go to the mall to unwind after the party.

We arrived at the house that we will be staying at 1 p.m., good thing that our workmates who went roaming some tourist spot already arrived and were waiting for us.

When we get inside of the house, we took some pictures right away:

This is the first one, since this was the area that welcomed us right away when we opened the living room. I love these thingies that were on top with the mirror. The design makes you feel you are having vacation somewhere in the states.

Here’s the veranda near the kitchen, expect an extreme cold when you go outside. I have to ask my daughter to hurry up when taking a picture with me sitting down.

This was the outside of the house
