Good old friends, Green Building and Chocolate

1) Meeting up with a friend whom I had promised to call back 3 months ago in 1 minute and never did... and still be able to chat and have a great time as if it was 1 minute ago.

2) Being in a Green Building for the first time and enjoying the ultimate view of downtown and the Verrazano bridge.

3) Going to a a chocolate cafe in NYC and feeling like i'm in Willy Wonka's factory!
Delicious and creative menu. Delicate white chocolate ice cream on top of very crisp waffle at 1am. Yum!

Get Inspired by the simpler things in life

It's nice to see people looking at the beauty in simple things.
Haven't you noticed? Simple things can bring you a smile...

3BT is a great way to view the world... So, here are my first 3BT for today:

1) Finding this blog and a bunch of people who have the same idea
2) Seeing people who appreciate life, elderly, and the sweet moments we often forget in the business world.
3) Seeing my ex-coworkers, having a great time and remembering good old times.

Three Beautiful things

Happy 1 Year anniversary!

I made it and i'm still alive!

Tuesday was 1 year since I started my new job. I can't deny that it has been a tough year, but it has also been a year full of learning and new experiences.

I wanted to take a moment to Thank my family and friends who were so supportive at all times and helped me go through this battle.

It is amazing how right on that day - one year after I started - I saw clearly how many things changed as a product of the work and dedication I have put this year.
It was that particular Hello, that particular Thank You, that particular Opinion, that gave me the clue that I had proven myself to the team.

Thanks again, I wouldn't have done it without your support.

Where is the Fashion Police?

What is it that strikes me the most about streets, markets and street markets populated with chinese people?
Everyone running over each other with their fashionable 4x4s...

Where is the class and glamour?

wait... what class...?

Sad.. sad... sad... LOL

I have to tell you, carrying 10 lbs of fish rock and tons of groceries is not fun! So I couldn't help myself but to RUN to a hardware store and get myself one of those!
Definitely a Kodak moment!

Thank Goodness for Phyton!

Looking at pretty fish in a fish tank is one thing. Taking care of them it's a whole other story.

Caring for 4 fish tanks means, changing 25% of 125 gallons of water every other day. That is ONLY if the water is in good conditions... Otherwise, add another 5 - 10%.
My sister and I were already developing muscles in our arms. - Which is not a bad thing, but pretty tiring. By the time we finished with the tanks there was no energy to do anything else.

Changing the tank water was quite an adventure. We would have to suck out of a dirty hose to suck out my fish kaka... pretty disgusting.
So my sister and I would take turns and laugh to see who would suck and swallow the water! Hilarious and yet disgusting!

So on Sunday, my sister and I went to the fish store to buy some fish food and to ask for a few recommendations on stabilizing the ammonia in the water. After explaining our struggle with the water condition and all that we have to go through, our friend the fish man, started laughing.
Why? well... the picture below just says it all. It's a mirror of our faces when we take care of our tanks...

I definitely can relate to their Ad!

Thank goodness for this product called Phyton that we no longer have to suck on this dirty water!
