Wake me up at …

Posted: June 28, 2010 by iJose in Life, People, Work

I’m leading a life where time is of an essence, and I believe that most, if not all, of us are the same. So, people invented clocks, (like wall clocks, or Big Ben clocks), watches (hand watches :p), and of course, alarms.

My input here is about alarms, what i personally do is that readjusted my computers, laptops, mobiles, car clocks timings 7 minutes earlier so that i get to be a head of time, or at least, trying to.

I set my room alarm to 05:48 in the morning. Why not 05:50 or 06:00 ? well, because the other numbers have the exact same right as the zeros or fives have.

Therefore, this is an official open invitation from La7tha Shway people to start using the sevens, threes or even the ones in your alarms.


Social vs. Personal

Posted: June 28, 2010 by a la Mocha in Life, People

Many times you see a person who’s smiley and cheerful from the outside; so easy to approach and so close to the heart, even upon the first encounter. You see them acting very socially, talking so nicely and in a matter of minutes you feel like you’ve known them for a long time. You think to yourself: Wow, this person is such a sweetheart and is well-rounded and educated. They seem so positive. They must lead a happy life.

However, appearances can be deceiving at times. Meeting someone in a social context is just one side of the coin. The flip side could reflect an opposing imagine. One that conceals sadness or depression or a broken soul struggling to remain composed and unshattered. No one lives a perfect life. And believe it or not, sometimes even the last person you could ever imagine to be sad might be crying themselves to sleep every night.

Moral of this post is..

Well, no moral. Just sharing a fact I guess.

On a lighter note, learning interpersonal skills is quiet interesting. :) Perhaps I’ll share a thing or 2 in an upcoming post.

Go Gaby!

Posted: June 25, 2010 by a la Mocha in People, TV

I just finished watching episode 14 (season 6) of Desperate Housewives. Gabrielle Solis cracks me up! She always does. I love her character and her unintentional humor. And the way her household is run is so entertaining to watch. I like all the other ladies as well, but in terms of favorites they follow this order: Gabrielle, Susan, Lynette, Bree.

If I had a choice of which housewife to be, I’d say Gabrielle. Bree’s style, home, and cooking is impeccable, but she’s too up-tight. Lynette’s household is so cozy and family-oriented and her relationship with her husband is genuinely sweet & sincere, but she’s too in-charge. Susan is fun and funny, but she’s too much of a cluts in every way/shape/form. Gaby, on the other hand, is pampered and living large. And I like Carlos. Although its a bit superficial at times, but their relationship is still loving. I like how he’s got his strong personality and his soft spots. He’s careful with money, yet he showers her with it at the same time. I love when he’s like: How much do you want? Or, just take my wallet Gaby! And of course she never says no. :P

I wanna be spoiled. Am sure I’d make a great spoiled person!

I personally like reading topics or watching movies about things that are controversial. Just finished watching “You Don’t Know Jack”, starring the best actor of the century Al Pacino.

He was playing Jack Kevorkian. It’s worth watching, it’s a different kind of movie, and it’s Al Pacino.

Tell me what you think about it.

here’s the trailer and bio.

Letter to (blank)

Posted: June 23, 2010 by a la Mocha in People, Work

Hello (blank),

I hope this letter finds you well.

I’d like to bring to your attention the fact that I refuse to use the word ‘Dear’ in my work correspondences, no matter who you are. I don’t mind if you use it to address me, but I mind me addressing you with it. I feel it’s intimate. “Dear (blank)” or “Dear (blanka)”. I’m sorry, but you’re not dear to me. So why pretend like you are? You’re just my colleague or a person I work with via emails who I’ve probably never seen face-2-face, or maybe just once or twice. I prefer to stick with non-intimate words of greetings such as “Hi (blank)”, “Hello (blanka)”, “Good morning (blank)”. At least these are sincere greetings.

Anyway (blank), no offense. I still think you’re cool to correspond with.

Best regards,

a la Mocha

another challenge around the corner !

Posted: June 22, 2010 by iJose in Life

In life, we would never enjoy winning battles, without the bitter taste of challenge. Those who achieve things without a sweat drop or a sleepless night, I do pitty them. Not because they’ve reached their goal, but because they did not taste the real thing.

I love challenges, to an extent that I seek em sometimes, I have my ups and downs, yet again my heart is pumping blood and my brain is leading the way.

Everybody dreams, but make sure you make your dream a reality, and only then, you’re a day dreamer. Stay away from those whose the word “impossible” is like drinking water. But instead, create your world, where the …

Impossible is Nothing !

I remember coming across a book with the above mentioned title a while back and I remember thinking I wish I thought of that first. :p
