Farewell 2013

Only a few hours and we are going to say goodbye to 2013. Another year of challenges are about to test our lives in different ways.  For me I want to forget all the bad things that I had encountered during 2013 and move on for 2014. A lot of not so good things happened to me but I considered it lessons to be learned. I pray to God that 2014 will be a lucky and positive year for me since 2, 0, 1, 4 are my lucky numbers. More blessings and good tidings are my wish to my family.

I'm still very lucky during 2013 because of the blessings I got like more overtime from my work during the early months of 2013 and the two months salary bonus which our company is giving every year. I thank God for these blessings. Peace on earth, goodwill to man!

Two Days Before New Year

I had been for the past two days going to the mall. Maybe I missed so much the crowd and the smile of everyone you meet along your way. First, me and my son had a grand time bonding together going to SM Bacoor. We ate at Pizza Hut after watching a movie. I enjoyed my malling with my son. Here are some of the random pictures I had taken.

Two Days After Christmas

I had a chance to go to SM Mall of Asia two days after Christmas. Still people are flocking the mall to buy something for themselves or love ones. The mall was full of people shopping, and most especially eating on every well known fastfood chains around the vicinity. I enjoyed my visit to the mall with a friend and we ate together at Gerry's Grill. After we parted ways I had a chance to take pictures outside the big mall.

Beautiful Morning

December is the start of the winter season in Saudi Arabia.  Cold mornings and  a very good climate  is what you can feel all through the month.  Today, December 03,  is a very beautiful morning in our place at Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia.  The climate is cold outside and the formation of the clouds in the sky is so mystic and beautiful which is like a fire bursting above.

S.T. Dupont Passenger for Men and Essence Pure

As long as I live, I will never get tired of buying perfumes and colognes.  Perfumes can relax our own moods.  Most of all perfume makes a person feel fresh, relax, attractive and confident.  Recently, I bought S.T Dupont Passenger for Men and S.T. Dupont Essence Pure both in 100ml bottle.   Both colognes are refreshing.  You can smell the unique natural aromas of dark leather for Passenger for Men.  While S.T. Dupont Essence Pure is a clear, fresh and elegant fragrance with star anis, evergreen and amber blends.  Both colognes are suitable for daywear.

Dinner with Sinigang na Hipon

One of my favorite Filipino dish I order whenever I eat in a Filipino restaurant is sinigang na hipon (shrimp) or beef sinigang.  I always relish the taste of the sour broth or soup that uses tamarind as its base flavor of this menu. It is also compose of vegetables such as water spinach (kangkong), pechay, or string beans (sitaw).  Last night, me and my colleague from Warehouse department decided to eat at a Filipino restaurant in Al-Khobar and we ordered this yummy and mouth watering sinigang na hipon and lumpiang shanghai.

 Caterpillar Ignition 704187 Black
Today is another milestone in my life.  I had been grateful to God that inspite of all the trials and tribulations, hardships, tears, and happiness, another year has been added to my fruitful stay with Middle East Battery Company.  Exactly today October 8, I'm celebrating my 16 years of work and dedication to my beloved company.  To celebrate this important day, I bought for myself a Caterpillar shoes and accessory holder as a gift.

You may think that there are two sets of plants in the picture.  Think twice before you answer yes.  Actually, it's only one because the plant is located in front of a mirror and the reflection itself is an illusion.  An illusion that sometimes represents our life.

Good Deed

I just did a good deed today.  I found one wallet from our office comfort room.  It was left by one of my co-worker from Sales and Marketing Department.  I have no idea how much money was in the wallet which includes his ATM, credit cards, and cash.  When I returned it, he was so very happy that everything on it is intact, nothing is missing.  Life is good.  My father and mother taught us to be an honest children and we are grateful for this teachings.  They taught us that whenever we found something which is not ours, we should return it to the rightful owner. As the saying goes, honesty is the best policy.

Pasalubong - Lola Abon's Durian and Mangosteen Candy

One of my colleagues who just came from the Philippines on an annual vacation gave me this "pasalubong" of Lola Abon's Durian Candy and Mangosteen Candy.  Durian is the famous fruit from Davao and I was delighted to taste the famous Durian candy, and believe me its really sweet and creamy.  Aside from the Durian candy is the Mangosteen candy which is also sweet, delicious, and taste good.  Both of these candies are addictive and I'm craving for more.

Magnolia Ice Cream

Finally, Magnolia Ice Cream is now available in Saudi Arabia. It's my all time favorite Ice Cream. Nothing can beat the mouth watering, sweet, creamy taste of Magnolia Ice Cream especially the chocolate flavor, vanilla flavor, mango flavor, and strawberry flavor.  Since summer is not yet over in Saudi Arabia, I still have the chance to buy other classic flavors of Magnolia Ice Cream.  Iba talaga ang Magnolia, pinoy na pinoy ang lasa!
