It’s been awhile…

Hello guys…

It’s been five months since I wrote my last entry on my blog. It was so sad that I haven’t updated my blog for a long time. I had a lot of things that has to be done and maybe this would a good start for my blog to taking care of. I have to write something…again…

I’m away with my family(since I got my new  job and get assigned to a distant place. It seems like I want to resign and take something else to be work on. But on the contrary, I don’t think any good reasons on why should I resign. I had a good work (payable), I’m contented with it. Maybe it is just I’m away with my family and it’s not easy to be far and away with them. Right?

For my long stay here in MATI, DAVAO ORIENTAL, I could say that I truly missed my family way back home. I missed them around and do the things I usually do when I’m with them. But then, I have found friends here. They’ve been the relief of my misery on missing my family. Since we have all the same situation.

It would be difficult for me to manage to work away from them, but since that I want to learn all the things and explore what the world is it would be a relief if we have a so called — friend.

I will be celebrating my five months on October 10, more patience and hard work to be done.

See you guys next on my next entry. I will be going to write about my friends here.


I am here: Mati City, Davao Oriental

My friends… I am here in Mati City, Davao Oriental, Mindanao, Philippines, South East Asia, Earth.

As I was talking on my last post that I will be moving again to another place…maybe I should say that… I was moved and been to another location again. Ho! It has been getting any longer to travel from my home (Davao City, Davao del Sur) than it was like before when I was in Tagum City.

I’ve been here last May 04, 2009. It takes more or less five (5) hours of travel from Davao City to Mati City. It’s been a long travel that’s why I haven’t got an idea to take some pictures on my way (aside that I wasn’t be able to have my cam with me) for the reasons that I was sleepy on a long travel. I slept. Hahahahhah!

When I’m on my way, I was be able to visualized the place. On what is Mati City look alike. I had been heard that the place has a lot of beaches and had a nice spots to unwind. I was excited and nervous at the same time. It is my first time to go to the place and work. Good luck to me.

For more than two weeks in Mati, the words that I can only say is adventure and challenge. Why?…uhm, for a week I be able on getting to know the place and the people. The place was on its hottest spots. Aside that its economy is exceeding, Govenment also want to promote the place and to invite investors to do business in the virgin white sand beaches of Mati. Yes! Beaches… Mati City has on its way to be proud of. The City had a lots of virgin beaches to explore on and I tried it.

I have been to Gregorio Beach Resort and *Masao Beach. It was a great experience and totally different aura of  what Masao is. Indeed, Mati is the best-kept secret of Davao Region.

masaoI had gone to thier wonderful *Church at Mt. Carmel, Tua-Tua Road, Barangay Matiao, here in Mati City.


I had taken a nice look of thier captivating spot which they say the sleeping dinosaur in *Pujada Island. Truly fascinating!… I wonder if it is truly a dino sleeping. shhh….it might wake up!

There are a lot of places in Mati that are truly haven. They say that Dahican is one of the most popular destinations in Mati with clear waters and had a 17-kilometer pure and fine white sand shore. I will surely say that Dahican would be the next place I want to explore. See you soon Dahican.

Truly Mati is a place worth to be discover. I am here, got challenged…now I explore.

Memories of Tagum

For more than three months in Tagum City, I should say that I had a beautiful time exploring the place. Meeting people in Tagum where the best thing I will surely treasure when I’m away in the city.

In these last few days I have this terrible feeling that I will be moving away in the city. Aside that I was informed, it took a lot of time fo me to decide whether I should leave or stay. It was a very difficult time to decide. I haven’t yet be able to explore more to the city but now, I will be moving on….again.

Only in Tagum

There are several things that I would like to share what Tagum City is. Aside from its nice and wonderful place of business and pleasure. I should surely say and confessed that Tagum had a good appetite in terms of food. As I noticed, Only here in Tagum that you will be able to buy a piece of pork barbeque for only one (1) peso. Imagine that!?! For just a single peso you would be able to eat and had lunch or dinner. Good for the people who were trying to be thrifty. Nice!

Aside from that, only in Tagum City that after 6 o’clock those several streets where being closed and night market where just around the corner. Lots of goods and things where selling (shoes, slippers, bags, dress, etc.). In the local terms, we called it “ukay-ukay”. I exprienced this things. For me, this is inexpensive yet very tiring because in order to have some clothes or things in a low cost you will going to tumble, mixed, juggled, turned yourself in finding some things you want. Ho!…I’m so tired of it!…yet exciting!

People and Place

When I’m in Tagum, I should say eventhough I had lived for just a couple of months, I should say that Tagum is just like any other place here in the Philippines. It is just like Manila, Cebu, Davao or even an old folk place in the other side of the earth. Tagum has its originality on its own.

My peers and companions were very entertaining. We have been separated by our different places where we came from but we are bonded and connected by the place and the ambiance  of good relationship. People in Tagum, especially my officemates and colleagues is whom I miss the most when I’m away.

Last Words

Thank you for the good memories. I will treasure and surely missed the Tagum City.

There’s no place like home

Since when I started my work at the new place. I only got one day ticket a week to go back home. I had my day-off during Saturday, so I had a one day chance to go back home. It was a mixed emotions. I haven’t know if I will feel happy because I’m going back home or be lonely because I will be leaving my family by the next day. But then, I tried myself to enjoy my family’s companion. I’d rather spend my whole day with them. Even though  I’m with my two  more months  working  far away from them still I see to it that even for just a day I’ll go back home to see my family.  I managed to  go back  in forth  although it’s difficult for me.  Still I enjoyed myself  working  having the kind nature of work.

I still want my pillows all over my bed. I still missed my morning cup of coffee and some cookies. I still need the 2 hours bath and remedy inside the bathroom. I still want to cuddle happy and the rest of the gang. I still want to do some things that I usually do when I’m home. All mentioned and even none is still I want to linger when I’m home. There’s no other place like home.

That’s why, even though I spent nowadays working away from home and staying in a rented house, still I managed to think and missed the place where I wanted to go every end of the day. The place where I was since when I’m young where I belong. My home my family.

I’d missed the place and the home when I’m away with my work. Nah….drama!

I’m 1 month…

It’s just by then when I started to post an entry regarding on my new place to work on and now I’m on my one month to the said place. Well, exploring the place in one month was totally good and now that I’m extending my duty to the place, I guess I’ll be giving more information to the place on my next entry,  I guess.

I got more adjustments, having the first consern that I’m away on my family. It was a difficult to live with a new people. Without even knowing what’s their atttitudes and traits, but thanked God I survived!

I got a nice and good officemates and peers. It is just to take a few minutes to recall my family away from me when I’m with them. Although I missed my family a lot, still I have this spirit to continue my work and tried to be away with them, even for a single time or more.

So far, so good…

1 week

I have come this far. For one week on work where I stayed away with my family. It’s quite surviving and total  challenging on my part. I met people who were interesting and quite annoying.  Opposites and  contradicted thoughts , people and issues.

It was fun when I walked out to the streets and saw different people observing there way of living. For a single week, I know I had learned, and for the days to come, for sure I will learn more.

Maybe life is a matter of opposite attract. If you’ve got negative things, sooner or later you will get and experience positive things. I just loved the way it was wanted to be. It was a total opposite reactions attract!

I borrowed my sister’s cam to take some pictures to the place where I was assigned. I explore the place for a couple of times and even when the day comes I just develop my exploring skills to the city where I worked.

I just can’t wait to post those picture on my next entry. 🙂

First Time

First time to stay away

This is my first time to stay away with my family. It is just like that the present company tried to convinced me to work away with my family and friends. That was the nature of the company where I worked with. I worked more than miles to help my family in financial aspects; and to gain and develop my personal ability.

First time to explore and live in the place

At first, the place* were so huge for me to imagine and difficult for me to recognize. I was quite nervous and afraid to deal with the people where the place is also as new as it was be to me. Communicating towards people were not so easy yet very much simple to deal with. I rented a room for me to lived and had to stay in. First time alone that I applied as a lady bed spacer. We were two in a single room. Quite nice for me to have .This was my first time to rent a room and had a companion on a single room where I sleep. I missed my room way back to my real place where I lived in.

First time of duty

First day of duty, it was a very bright, sunny day. When i was on my way to work. I got a very nice location for renting a room. My work place is about a walking distance and no need to ride on a vehicle.

First time to be with the place

It was was first time to lived in the place. You know what? It was a very nervous and challenging on my part to take the job. Asides that i will conquer my own strengths and weaknesses, to take all the odds and to prove my worth as an independent woman, person and a human being of this earth. Hahaha….

Dealing with people is not so hard for me. Typically, I’ve be able to just and flex myself towards others. I’ll always wanted to meet other people. I want to gain friends, learn things which I haven’t learned yet and know; and otherwise, to share my views also; kinda’ vice versa, give and take.

To my Family:
Thank you for the full support and understanding to the nature of my work. I loved you all and it would be eternal. Expressing my deep gratitude is no enough to extend my feelings. Thank you very much!

To my Friends:
hello guys, I have my good time with all of you. All the memories is a treasure for me. It would carry for the rest of my life. Thank you for being part of my life. See you soon and see you then.

To my Work! Place* and officemates:
Thank you for believing that I have the capacity to work with the job assigned to me. I’ll do my best to prove my worth. To my co-employees, thank you for believing in me. I’ll do take all your critiques and praises to develop myself. I will do my job and responsibility as what it was assigned to me.
So help me God.
