Anyone having pimples? It has been awhile I didn't have any pimples on my face. I just notice I have one on my leftside of my forehead and another one on my left chin. They just both started to swell and they are painful too. I guess nobody wants to have pimples. I might be stress or it is part of my PMS.

My sister gave my Pro Active and I always use them everytime I get a pimple. Pro Active is really effective for me. Once I put the Pro Active repairing lotion the pimple doesn't even have the chance to grow.
Hope these pimples heal soon.

Weekend House Cleaning

Last weekend I was busy cleaning the house. It has been a while I haven't done general cleaning. I vaccum the carpets almost every week but lately have not made my dusting of the walls and the furnitures. It took most of my day last Saturday. It was a through general cleaning from the living room to the kitchen and all the bathrooms.

I re-decorated the house too. My late mother-in-law had lots of collections of teddy bears which were just placed in basement. I brought them in the living room just for a change of scene in the house. Since I came here the kitchen has never been change it still has motif of teddy bears. I know it doesn't sound right but I kept it same as it is for her memory.

I had to spray the floor to keep it shinny. It is just very nice to stay in a clean and clutter free house.

I can't wait for Spring to come so that I can clean rake my garden. It is still too cold to do some work outside.

Family Day w/ Friends

Today is the family day holiday here in Canada but it was not applicable to all workers. I invited my friends to come over for dinner. I prepared dinugguan, breaded shrimp, calamare, pancit palabok and grilled milkfish. I made some bucayo(sweetened young coconut strips) and my friend brought a blueberry cheesecake.

We had a sumptous dinner. I am happy that they all like the food that I cook. It is nice to eat Filipino dishes. I like to cook but I don't feel like eating after when I am alone. It was nice to be with company around.

Friends thank you for coming. Sa uulitin.

System Error

When I arrived to work today I was surprise most of the representatives were just outside of the production floor. It was because we had some issues with our systems. Some were able to take calls and continue with the work and others were not. When I log in to my computer there I find out that my system was also down. I was just waiting for it to come back on. After 3 hours it did come back but not for everybody and I was one of them. I don't know what was the error. I felt so bored waiting and waiting for it to came back so that I can work. Around ten to six I ask my supervisor what will I do, they just said to wait. I feel bad for most of them were already busy taking calls and there I am just sitting pretty doing nothing. I approached her again around seven o'clock and she told me that I can either stay or go home it won't go against my attendance. I just decided to go home and enjoy my evening. It would have been nice to stay and get paid without doing anything but I am also bothered by my conscience. Anyway, the rest of us that the system didn't work were also sent home.I got home early tonight, I will just make up my hours tomorrow. Hopefully everything will be back to business.
