PositiviTEA After Being Stood-up

A few weeks ago, we fired our seller at the bakery.

Unfortunately for us, his replacement stood us up on his first day of work and was nowhere to be found. He just... disappeared!

We interviewed another potentiable and he agreed to come in for training. But we were stood up.

Again.




I couldn't help but rant online. Diba? Nakaka-frustrate?

The next day, I received a tweet! 


I've had brands engage me on Twitter. Some are weird and #mema but this once was a pleasant surprise. (I wonder how they chanced upon my tweet!)

Fast forward to this evening, I saw this in my room!



I wanted to save it for a bad day... but I couldn't resist. Haha!



Inside were three different ice tea flavors and a cute tumbler. This was definitely a happy humpday surprise.

Thank you to Lipton Philippines for sending over some positiviTEA! No negativity tonight.

To add to the positiviTEA, we have a new seller already! Tengksgad!

Discover Taiwan’s best brands at TriNoma, August 19 to 21



We're in for a treat!

A wide selection of high-quality products from Taiwan’s best brands will be showcased at the third Taiwan Excellence Experiencing Zone. It's happening this weekend (August 19 to 21) at TriNoma mall in Quezon City.

Now this is something I'd want to see and experience.

Led by the Bureau of Foreign Trade and in partnership with the Taiwanese government, the three-day event is an interactive showcase of brands that bear the Taiwan Excellence seal.

This seal assures customers of the products’ superior quality.

Over 140 products from 54 Taiwan Excellence-accredited brands will be showcased. Products range from gadgets, home appliances, personal care products, to fitness gears.

Some of the featured items include STRIDA’s durable bicycles designed for convenient and reliable urban transport, SH-RD’s protein cream that avoids hair damage and promises softer and shinier hair, and FECA’s storage-ware that help in maximizing spaces at home.

Gigs, fashion shows, games, and raffle draws are also in store. Watch out for performances by Silent Sanctuary (August 19), Callalily (August 20), and Up Dharma Down (August 21).

Booth tours and brand presentations will be present. Selling booths from brands such as Tatung, MSI, FECA, and Asus will also be available, while generous discounts from brands like Kymco, MSI, Pacific, Tatung, Tern, and Thermaltake will be offered.

Let's not miss out on these treats from Taiwan Excellence-approved brands this weekend. Again, it's at TriNoma only from August 19 to 21.

See you there? Hao!

Perspectives

We were in Batangas for a seminar and there was a unique hammock-type swing that would spin round and round--something I've never experienced before.

Being a photo enthusiast, I wanted to capture my happy moment on it. Selfies wouldn't do, I thought. I felt the need to take a "different" kind of photo to capture the moment.

So while spinning (and feeling all dizzy), I put the camera on slow-mo, looked up, and clicked.

Happiness!

Some people see this and say that it's nauseating, Photoshopped, or it's grabbed from the Net. To me, it's one of my best works, which captured how happy I was. It's a matter of perspective, really.

When everything seems to be spinning out of control, slow down and capture what life has to offer. Don't just swing through it. Enjoy the ride and don't forget to look up.
