Love Knows No Distance

When do you have the luxury time together with your love ones? Is your long distance affair headed toward the same sorry fate? Do you think long distance relationship works?


According to majority that absence makes the heart grow fonder, but many casualties of long distance relationship would beg to disagree and I can attest to that as well.

Missing someone get easier everyday because even though you are one day further from the last time you saw them, you are one day closer to the next time you will. The best and most beautiful things that cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart. As the days go by, the memories remain.

In a relationship, you want to be the priority but you have to consider as well the responsibility of the person you loved to their family because doubts can build and cause a whole lot of problems and jealousy can often be a figment of your imagination.

I do believed that finding a destined match (the right one) isn’t easy, sometimes you are blinded with the charming heartthrobs that keeping your attention away but by then, you are building your own experience by becoming into a strong, wise, sweet and lovable individual.

Way back 2007, I met this guy; he is my friend and colleague, I am three years older than him. Who would thought that the guy I’m talking everyday will become part of my life and fill the empty space of my heart to find true happiness despite of my stressful workload?

We started as friends and something happened inside us. He wanted me so long not as friend but he is hesitant maybe he gets busted. I think it was a love that came without warning, I was so blown away and all the good things he says never leaves my mind even I have million things to worry about.

Our relationship started and I cannot explain why I loved him as well but all I know that I want to see him always and I am enjoying his company. We are inseparable to the point that, everybody recognized the changes between the swift.

However, we both aware that relationship between colleagues are prohibited in our company, which means we need to choose whether he stay and I resign or the other way around. Despite of the consequence, our relationship gets stronger and bloomed and we decided to resign.

He is very responsible and he is the bread winner of his family after the death of his father. I got worried after we resigned because he needs to find an alternative job immediately because there is a family waiting for his support.

Our plan was to move to another city where my friends (my former students) are working but since he signed job for six month contract, I have to move first then he will just follow after. I have to establish first in a new place and find a work as well so that just in case he needs my help I have some to spare.

Our relationship is very open. It was hard to be far away of the one you love but when you think the purpose of doing so; you will feel very grateful.

Even we are a perfect couple but we are not in a perfect situation. For anything worth having one must have to pay the price – always work patience, love and self-sacrifice. No great love ever came without great struggle. We never missed to call everyday and tell our different problems, we focus to our work and wait until the day we will meet again.

We kept holding on our promises, thus distance is not the hindrance at all and for the record, we are now engaged and waiting for our momentous wedding early next year.

It is normal that sometimes we are upset but when you hear the voice of the one you love sincerely asking for an apology and understanding, then your heart gradually melt and things fall in place again. I believed those are spices of a relationship, there might be worst but you will not be given a problem if you cannot handle to solve.

If we fail to give the best of our personal self and undivided time to those who really important to us; then one day we will regret it.

Communication is very important in a long distance relationship. Distance doesn’t matter if you really love the person, what matters most is the honesty and trust for that relationship to work out. 


Businessmen reactions on Miley VMA’s Performance

Unknowingly the viral discussion of Miley VMA’s performance, I haven’t checked the news due to special project I am working with my team. I went to a Summit yesterday related to the renewable Power Plant implementations and new edge.

Prior the summit started, I saw six men in discussion; they are bubbly, exaggerated and of course having fun which catch my attention, so I sat before them and pretending to be busy on my hand-outs and brochures given by the receptionist.

Surprisingly I heard their discussion;

  • Men-in-Tie #1: Do you really think that was live and not scripted?
  • Men-in-Tie #2: It was so unusual did you see the video; OMG! I saw the long flattened tongue? Oh men it was good to lick.
  • Men-in-Tie #3: That was a bad investment.
  • Men-in-Tie #4: The interest was on top already but now it drastically drops down.
  • Men-in-Tie #5: The business morale goes down.
  • Men-in-Tie #6: I still really love the performance. But I cared most the kids audience and viewers.

I was so desperate to know who this girl they referring to, until I went back to the office I asked my colleagues if they know a celebrity gone viral for the past days and they replied, it was Miley Cyrus. Then I checked online videos and got this! (sorry video was no longer available)


Now, I fully understand the reactions of these businessmen that even outside of their world they spit a comment on this performance. I personally liked Miley but the transformation she up to brings not so good impression to the public especially her fans. Goodbye to Hannah Montana image.

Sometimes, it happen in our lives that we are excited on what we can do more to show people that we keep pacing with the new trend and meet their expectations, but hopefully at the end of the day, the smile of we wear is due to the best experienced we did without regrets.

We live in an increasingly sophisticated world that makes it difficult to make simple comments on stuff. There are too many people on both sides of the border who are taking advantage of circumstances and the situation.

Everyone makes their own comments. That’s how rumors get started.

Suddenly we’re like a Strangers

There’s a danger in starting a fire; you’ll never know how many bridges you’ll burn however sometimes it isn’t a bad thing and it may prevent us from going back to a place we should never have been to begin with.

“Friends come and go, but real friends stay; chances are if someone’s in the past, they deserve to stay there.” We cry over friends we will never have back, people we once loved and bridges that have been burnt. But there’s a reason, the past is in the past. We only have so much room in our life save it for people who deserve it.


I really choose my friends to whom I am comfortable with, vesting my trust, reliable and never hit behind my back, always have positive outlook in life, easy going and most of all “can go with the flow.” I mean each of us really look for a person that together we a click to keep smiling with their company.

Any relationship trust is very important and so as friendship.

When I was a teacher I got two favorite students Nadem and Nylanor; it doesn’t mean that I gave all the favors in the class, they strive the same as others doing, I am strict and candid of reminding them that even we are friends, friendship doesn’t prevail just in case you failed and it was not a hurdle to them passed my exams. I was too young that time (20 years old) and Nadem (19) and Nylanor (18).

Two years after they graduated, I decided to find a new job because I’m not happy being a teacher longer, not because my friends were not there but because I am looking for a new opportunity considering that teaching is not my profession, I finished Information Technology which makes me able to teach basic computer subjects in a College school where Nadem and Nylanor studying.

I moved in the same city where Nadem and Nylanor working to keep us three seeing more often. There are many appreciates the status of our friendship as we treat each other like sisters even though I am their teacher before but it was not a hurdle nor even a gap because we set aside everything between us. We are open discussion issues between our family, boyfriend and work.

Always; I believed that the only thing that doesn’t change is the word “Change”.

I thought for many years that we’ve been together we really know each other. It was happen that when the boyfriend of Nylanor traveling abroad for work (2 years) which keep her very irritated oftentimes. It was like a mishap of our friendship; I cannot talk Nylanor in a nice conversation because she always gets offensive and I have to stop and lie low to keep my temper balance. I totally understand Nylanor, the feeling that you missed someone.

It was three months already but she is still very cold to speak with me even Nadem. We really don’t know her problem. I asked her boyfriend of what was happening to her but he replied like no issues discussed between them, she kept talking to her other friends from work but I cannot understand when we visit her there is no excitement.

When Nadem got serious sickness that I need to divide my time from work to hospital. I informed Nylanor about it but even her shadow, it was not present besides she went together with her workmates to camp somewhere in the mountain. Does she still care for us? Even to drop by and just say hello even she don’t care anymore she didn’t do that.

I have nothing against her but the attitude she showed to me is enough for me to let her go and stop worrying about her. I was shocked and can’t believe of what she did. The three of us has the same blood type, and Nadem needs 3 bags of blood for transfusion, since she didn’t volunteer as donor I persuade my colleague to donate their blood for my friend. It was a very tough time for me and also with Nadem but Nylanor doesn’t care at all.

For whatever reason, it was not my fault already as she did not open-up and discuss about it. From there, I promised to myself that I will stop seeing her and I admit it was so painful for me to let go of her seeing her very happy with her other friends and thinking that she dumped us.

Things happen when they must.

As Nadem recovered, she went home with her parents and I transferred to another city as well just to move on. To make the story short, we welcome in our heart the acceptance of letting Nylanor go.

My friendship with Nadem continues without any hurdle. When she gets married, even she was miles away from me; I make myself available to be able to attend the very important moment of her life. All happy moments starting from there to having a baby and birthday we are together. After all the bad experienced we had with Nylanor, we recognized that we totally moved on and all our good moments with her is just now “memories”.

However, one day; I met a colleague of Nylanor in a shopping mall, we have a small talk in a coffee shop then suddenly she open-up updates about her. I was kind feeling awkward during that time as I don’t want to hear anything from her but when she started that she broke up with her boyfriend, it breaks my heart a little because I know how she loves the guy. Despite of all her challenge; she fought it over her family. And now, she is pregnant by another guy and we don’t know if it was just a rebound or she was so desperate knowing that her boyfriend dumped her.

After all listening the story of Nylanor; I extend my sincere regards to her but there is no feeling of worrying so much maybe because I am not so concern unlike before.

When Nadem celebrates her birthday in her sister’s place which happens to be few blocks away from my place, Nylanor was there, it was an awkward moment; all these guys are my friends and I don’t want to ruin the birthday party either. So when Nylanor was a little bit drunk, she apologized for what she did before and I told her,  when you think that rejecting us is where your happiness then go on with your life… (awkward silence).

She should be responsible of her action that is what I want her to realize. But even I tried to convince myself, I cannot force to get along with her again. I know Nadem just respect her but being close friends as before perhaps it needs more years to recover.

She reject us, she leaves, then return, for what? Is it because she has lots of problem? We have ego as well, and I felt she is not so sincere of asking an apology. I prefer not to communicate her because I still have a high temper reading her notes.

I tried to let the unpleasantness between us become a thing of the PAST however, I choose to let the time heals and will see if there is still space left for our friendship or can just be considered as – was friend before.

Sometimes the friend you ever loved will hurt you the most and the worst pain brings the best of change – from a very good friends and now suddenly like a strangers.


Emergence of Mobile Phones became the Personal Dairies Nowadays

Mobile phones have become a substantial in our lives, in a way of simply connecting people by the popularized traditional service of sending short messages. Whether it is for private, business and commercial use, this kind of technology suddenly keeps improving more and more which once regarded as luxury is now the thing nearest to our hearts.

When you get your first mobile phone?

Seriously, I got my first mobile phone year 2003; it was a pre-used Nokia 3410, the first Java phone by Nokia features a monochrome display, released in early 2002 being the successor of Nokia 3310.


It was so hard to get one especially during my college days; my parents are very strict on focusing our studies instead. The situation before is quite complicated as we have today, getting one in our place is like winning a sweepstakes. However, as technology keep changing from time to time, conservative folks also awaken their senses to accept gradually the importance of cellular and its advantage.

Before; initially the mobile phones launched to provide the normal telephonic communication and the short message service or SMS. But with the advancement in the digital technology these basic facilities have become more advanced with lots of new added features. The text message is further extended to pictures messages (MMS), checking mails or using the Internet, listening to music, capturing images and playing games. Mobile phones have developed amazingly from the heavy and expensive devices to a very reasonable one.

In contrast to past mobile phones; the latest phones have transformed themselves to hi-end gadgets offering entertainment and communication features, whether you wish to listen to music, view high quality pictures and browse the internet.

Now, when smart phone emerge, it enables multitasking feature; individual to do many things simultaneously. The way of communicating has completely changed with the arrival of the latest trend of mobile phones.  Smart phone seems to be the trend of the future of wireless communication. Allowing for immediate access to data online, whether one is at home, travelling, or at work.

Now, my mobile phone is my personal assistant. See, how life goes easy with me?


I can easily access my E-Mail, set an appointment with reminders and I don’t literally have to sit the entire day facing my desktop computer to perform the entire task I need to do or do expensive international call either. Everything is made possible with the use of handy smart phone. Through wireless connection, I am always connected whether at home or in office. I can easily socially interact through Facebook, Twitter and view some video clips in YouTube.

Although, older people might not understand the new technology and the small screens can be difficult to use for E-Mail and other advanced functions for people with bad eyesight but for most individual, for this kind of mobile phones things get easier.

But, at the end of the day; choose what still the best for you.

Get yourself an INSPIRATION!

When you’re lonesome, out of things, secluded, lack of companionship and depressed; GET YOURSELF AN INSPIRATION!

Why inspiration matters?

 Well, inspiration awakens us to ignite new possibilities by allowing ourselves to transcend ordinary experiences and limitations which actuate a person from torpidity to possibility, and transforms the way you perceive your own capabilities.

Sometimes, inspiration may be overlooked because of its evasive nature, however, recent research shows that, inspiration can be activated, captured, and manipulated, and it has a major effect on important life outcomes. Regardless of which, who and what is your inspiration, it doesn’t matter; what matter most is, it does knock your inner esteem and glows your personality. Nobody shall be called as boring, or had been bored or depressed if you unlock yourself.

So, burden, failures, disappointment, no success, trials, you name it can be surpasses if you admit, embrace and be open-minded enough that tomorrow is another day – a new day with a new opportunity, lean it to your understanding and that change is needed. No matter what, get inspired.

When people felt inspired, it triggers emotions and feelings that enable us to do the things we do with purpose, energy and enjoyment. Either can be a person, place, event, or object that motivates or drives you to think, feel, or do good or be creative.

What keeps me Inspired?

I have millions of inspirations which vary depending on my mood that transpose me into enthusiasm instead of drowning myself into indulgence.


Sometimes this feeling is commonly happen if I cannot reach others expectation. The treat that cheer me up is listen up-beat music with my favorite artist. I enjoyed the tiny buzz of this bit, what is yours?

Come and Get it by Selena Gomez – No. 1 in US Hot Dance Club Songs (2013 Billboard) and No. 2 in Belgium (Ultratip Flanders)and US Pop Songs (Billboard)

Titanium by David Guetta – Titanium ft. Sia  – No.1 in  Israel (Media Forest, Mexico Inglés (Billboard), Scotland (Official Charts Company), UK Dance (Official Charts Company) and UK Singles (Official Charts Company).

Dance Again by Jennifer Lopez- No. 1 in Greece (IFPI Greece), Poland (Dance Top 50), South Korea (International Chart) and US Hot Dance Club Songs (2012 Billboard).

Gentlemen by Psy – No. 1 in Luxembourg (2013 Billboard), South Korea (Gaon Digital Singles), South Korea (Billboard K-Pop Hot 100) and US Dance/Electronic Songs (Billboard).


I drove all Night by Celine Dion – No. 1 in Belgian Flanders Singles Chart, Swedish Singles Chart, Canadian Adult Contemporary Chart and Canadian Singles Chart.



Seriously; I felt stressed and tired after long hours of work. I feel better after I have some ice cream to cool down and to complete my happiness if I can watch my favourite comedy movies and TV series especially in Disney Channel. At the moment, “The Wizard in Walvery Place,” either series or the movie inspired me a lot and I love all the casts most especially Selena Gomez, she is so bubbly and you got to smile on her actions. I am looking for a DVD copy of this series, if you guys know where I can purchase either online or in store, please PM me. Hope you will enjoy!


I write anything that makes me happy in the previous day and think of it, so even I have a much pressured time; I am still inspired while thinking of my happy moments. Don’t push harder to get finish of what you up to; otherwise, failure may come across instead, do it with confidence, gradual and success, waits in the edge.

Don’t get hung up on the hard times, the Challenges.  Tell your story by highlighting the victories. Because it’s your victories that will inspire, motivate, encourage other people to live their stories in grander ways.

Getting Up Early in the Morning?

From snooze-button addict to morning person.


Sunrise in the Berkshires

I know lots of people who do, but I don’t. (Normally, that is. This photo is an anomaly.) The warm shelter of the quilt is too cozy, my body insists on just a few more minutes — and then a few more, and a few more. But those stalwart folk who rule their bodies with an iron will, rise and go outdoors and reap rewards I know nothing about. One of them is definitely the poet William Stafford:

Any Morning

Just lying on the couch and being happy.
Only humming a little, the quiet sound in the head.
Trouble is busy elsewhere at the moment, it has
so much to do in the world.

People who might judge are mostly asleep; they can’t
monitor you all the time, and sometimes they forget.
When dawn flows over the hedge you can
get up and act busy.

Little corners like this…

Computer Problem and Customer Service

Make your day!

This has got to be one of the funniest I’ve heard of in a long time. I think this guy should have been promoted, not fired. This is a true story from the Word Perfect Helpline which was transcribed from a recording monitoring the customer care department.

Needless to say, the Help Desk employee was fired however; he is currently suing the Word Perfect organization for “Termination without cause.”

This is the actual dialogue of a former Word Perfect Customer Support employee (now I know why they record these conversations) starts here:


Employee    :    “Rich Hall computer assistance, may I help you?”

Customer    :    “Yes, well, I’m having trouble with WordPerfect.”

Employee    :    “What sort of trouble?”

Customer    :    “Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away.”

Employee    :    “Went away?”

Customer    :    “They disappeared.”

Employee    :    “Hmmm. So what does your screen look like now?”

Customer    :    “Nothing.”

Employee    :    “Nothing?”

Customer    :    “It’s a blank; it won’t accept anything when I type.”

Employee    :    “Are you still in Word Perfect, or did you get out?”

Customer    :    “How do I tell?”

Employee    :    “Can you see the ‘C:’ prompt on the screen?”

Customer    :    “What is a sea prompt?”

Employee    :    “Never mind, can you move your cursor around the screen?”

Customer    :    “There isn’t any cursor; I told you, it won’t accept anything I type.”

Employee    :    “Does your monitor have a power indicator?”

Customer    :    “What’s a monitor?”

Employee    :    “It’s the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it have little light that tells you when it’s on?”

Customer    :    “I don’t know.”

Employee    :    “Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?”

Customer    :    “Yes, I think so.”

Employee    :    “Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it’s plugged into the wall.”

Customer    :    “Yes, it is.”

Employee    :    “When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?”

Customer    :    “No.”

Employee    :    “Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable.”

Customer    :    “Okay, here it is.”

Employee    :    “Follow it for me, and tell me if it’s plugged securely into the back of your computer.”

Customer    :    “I can’t reach.”

Employee    :    “Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?”

Customer    :    “No.”
Employee    :    “Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?”

Customer    :    “Oh, it’s not because I don’t have the right angle it’s because it’s dark.”

Employee    :    “Dark?”
Customer    :    “Yes – the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window.”

Employee    :    “Well, turn on the office light then.”

Customer    :    “I can’t.”

Employee    :    “No? Why not?”

Customer    :    “Because there’s a power failure.”

Employee    :    “A power…….a power failure?…. Aha, Okay, we’ve got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?”

Customer    :    “Well, yes, I keep them in the closet.”

Employee    :    “Good.. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from.”

Customer    :    “Really? Is it that bad?”

Employee    :    “Yes, I’m afraid it is.”

Customer    :    “Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?”

Employee    :    “Tell them, you’re too STUPID to own a computer.”
