Superheroes are Real

I am a working class girl.  My daily routine is an 8 to 5 job that revolves around meetings, monitoring of incidents and training updates, monthly reports, coffee breaks, power lunch, etc. 

I am proud of my work.  To say the I absolutely love it would be an exageration but I can safely state that I find fulfillment in what I do.   Though there may be times that I want to scream in frustration, I am thankful that I have an exciting job that keeps me from being bored and annoying people.

Now to give honor to my fellow working class and to celebrate Labor Day, I will post these lovely pictures that I found on the net from a very creative photographer.  I'm sorry I can't remember his name but his pictures are simply superb:

 To say that our workers are superheroes is an understatement because not only do they work impossible hours in so little pay, they constantly have to endure inhuman working conditions and for our OFW's, time away from their families.  Just like our superheroes they have dual existence, they are mothers, brothers, daughters, etc. performing extraordinary tasks to support the family. They possess a willingness to risk one's own safety in the service of good, without expectation of reward from the families that they support.

There is a superhero in all of us.  Whether you are a saleslady, a call center agent or a marketing specialist, our driving force will always be our motivation to provide for ourselves and other people. I will always be inspired to be a part of this class, people who work to make this imperfect world a better place to be.  And I am proud to be a part of them.

The English Patient

There are movie lines...

And then, there are "the movie lines"

The English Patient is one of my all time favorite movie.  It stars the oh-so-mysterious Ralph Fiennes as Count Almasy (who incidentally is also a real person).

It is based on a novel of the same title by Michael Ondaatje (which is also one of my fave writers).

Michael's writing can be described as "imaginative and whimsical."  He likes to write stories about the ravages of war and the interesting people living it.

He also writes about relationships and betrayal.
 "Betrayals in war are childlike compared with our betrayals during peace. New lovers are nervous and tender, but smash everything. For the heart is an organ of fire." And of course, love.

This movie has "the movie lines" to die for.

Almasy to Katherine:  "Swoon, I'll catch you"
If only this statement can be trusted. If only guys are all like this in real life.


Singapore is so much like Makati -- tall buildings, fast people & talkative Filipino yuppies. Not so much sights but then again, we were there to overspend on pasalubongs and go retail shopping. I don't want to brag, but between here and Manila, Manila wins hands down (on my own standards). :-)

Our hotel was located at Orchard Rd. and it has (thankfully) Starbucks at the groundfloor. We went down one night only to realize that coffee (as with cigarrettes) is so much more pricey there.

Athough, I must say, the air is worth breathing and the streets are super clean. Thank God for countries who respect the rights of non smokers to nice, clean air.

March 8: International Women's Day

International Women's Day is celebrated across the world on March 8th each year. The day is about celebrating the vital role women play in enhancing economic security for their families, communities and countries as a whole while recognising that significant barriers to achieving women's economic security and equality continue to exist.

Just want to share this quote to all the ladies out there: 

A man wears the pants in a relationship but the woman tells the man which pair to put on.
