20th Wedding Anniversary

Hey guys!

Yesterday was my 20th wedding anniversary.

And because we both went to work, we decided to just have a simple celebration. Jojo cooked spaghetti and I bought a big cake from Mer-Nel's Cakehouse. Our initial plan is to dine at Gerry's Grill but since it's weekday and we have work, it didn't push thru.

I have nothing more to say. I'll just show you these pictures :

GCV's Birthday Surprise!

Good morning peeps!

Today is the birthday of our Admin. General Manager, Gerardo C. Velarde. He is also known as GCV or sir Gerry but he also would like to be called "Tatay Gerry".

Yesterday, we surprised him with a birthday cake and a gift. A day before, we (HR, Logistics & Facility) agreed that nobody will greet him until 4:00 PM. According to my officemate, Jenny Ramos, he overheard GCV singing "happy birthday to me" while walking towards visitors' area. And as if talking to himself, "walang bumabati sa akin ah!".

Then 4:00 PM came! The cake is ready....we gathered at the Clinic....then we started singing....

"♪♫ Happy birthday to you...
Happy birthday to you...
Happy birthday, happy birthday,
Happy birthday to you! ♫♪♥♥"

We saw his face lit up when he saw us!

Philippine Red Cross' My Blood Brother Program

Hey guys!

I'm back and hopefully, this is for good. Oh, how I miss this blog! Apologies for being absent for a long time.  It's just that I became too busy with other matters, that's why.

Anyways, I promise to update this blog as often as I can :)

To start with, I want to share with you our company's recent CSR activity. Pricon donated P35,000 to the My Blood Brother Program of Philippine Red Cross' Muntinlupa Branch. You can check their post here  If you checked the link, the P35,000 cash donation is equivalent to 17 tshirts which we distributed to the Top 13 blood donors of the company, 1 for Mutya, who is in charge of Pricon's CSR activity. 1 for me who represents the company on all legal matters and 1 each for Warlito Mantilla and Shiela Diaz.

Check this out :

The tshirt is nice plus the fact that we know it's for a good cause :)
