Everyday Life

Just last night I tweeted that I ache to watch a musical.  

It’s been awhile since the Husband and I have been to the theatres.  The last show we watched was KAOS in  Resorts World Manila and that felt like ages ago.  There are a few musicals that seem to entice me but not enough to make me buy us a ticket.  I’m actually looking forward to next season’s musicals (I heard “Annie” will be in Sydney early next year) so I’m waiting for that.

In the meantime, Husband and I are eyeing some concerts that we may want to watch.  We are not into concerts but once in a while we let ourselves experience watching great performers on stage and listen to them sing.  Nowadays, there are so many concerts happening all over the world and you can get cheap tickets online such as Jennifer Lopez tickets, Enrique Iglesias tickets, Luis Miguel tickets, Vicente Fernandez tickets and Marco Antonio tickets.  If you want to check out more artists who are might soon be having concerts, the power is already in our hands with just one click of a mouse.

My time and energy has been focused on work lately.  For the past year, my team and I have been working on a huge training program at work that combines classroom training and online courses that they have to go thru in order to complete the program.  We have launched our training program and we are so proud of what we have come up with.  I’m so inspired with what we have accomplished that I’m now starting to think of enrolling myself into online degree programs in Human Resources.  

When I lived and worked in Manila a few years back, my dream was to do some further studying in the area of Human Resource, but I didn’t have the time then.  I got caught up in my career and eventually forgot about it.  Now that I’m living here in Sydney, the idea seems possible because of the gift of technology.  Well, it will make my life busier but still, the convenience and benefits of gaining online Degrees seem realistic for a wife and career woman like me.  What’s best is that these days, there are institutions that help in financing one’s studies like http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ so I’m feeling more confident about taking this step to learning more and growing in the field of Human Resource.

I’m going to think some more and if not this year, maybe next year, I will be able to start being a student again.  Wish me luck!

The minute I came back from my holiday in Manila, one of my friends asked me if I wanted to watch theatre plays currently on show but I declined.  My Husband and I are taking a rest from going out for the past month.  We felt it was too soon to be going out after our big vacation.  However, I can’t help but share with you some great deals on aCheapseat.com .


I have long wanted to buy Cirque Du Soleil Tickets and The Lion King Tickets.  I have heard so many wonderful reviews from my relatives and friends who have experienced watching these two spectacular show.  I hope one day my Husband and I will get to watch them too.

For concerts, I would love to have a go at James Taylor Tickets and Tim McGraw Tickets for some great night of sweet loving music.  And who wouldn’t want to have the chance of owning U2 Concert Tickets?  My friends would squealed in delight in case they have a change to get cheap tickets to any U2 concert.

It’s nice to dream of concerts and shows I would like to see someday.  One day I know I’ll have the time and money to buy those tickets.  But if you have chance to get to see one of these, check it out and buy tickets now!

Good morning!  I woke up at 6:45am even if my alarm was set at 8:30am.  I have a fun and busy day ahead of me but I decided to get up, log in and write my article for “Ang Kalatas“.  Our next issue will come out next weekend so I hope some of you will be able to get a copy.  If not, you can check our issues online.

Before I officially start my day, let me share with you the new Starbucks logo.  At the start of the year, Starbucks announced that their logo will have a new look.  I’ve seen a few online buddies of mine share photos of the new look but it was only last Wednesday that I saw it.

Looks very “minimalistic” to me.  No more frills, no more words needed.  When you see “the siren”, you’ll know it’s Starbucks.



Wishing you a great weekend.

The happenings in Japan is devastating.  My Husband and I had a great day on Friday and when we had coffee before going home, we checked twitter and the news was all over the net–that Japan experienced an earthquake and tsunami.  Plus, there were threats of tsunami in different countries.  We were particularly concerned because there was a tsunami alert in the Philippines and Australia.  Thank goodness, both countries were spared.

While we all know that Japan can rise above all these adversity, it’s heartbreaking to watch them suffer.  After the earthquake and tsunami, now there are threats of a nuclear meltdown.  Some businesses have closed and even the world market is suffering too.  While Japan’s currency is being watched, we are also monitoring the Australian Dollar, because whatever is happening in other countries, it has an effect on our currency too.  For currency updates especially the Australian Dollar the Husband and I check the Business Spectator

I hope what’s happening in Japan ends soon.  And I really wish that all calamities all over the world would just end.  Let’s all be safe.
