Happy holidays, folks!
Shot I took when I was going around the hotel yesterday. Pretty Christmas ornaments in Edsa Shangri-La, Manila!

Right after graduation, I started sending out my resume to different companies I found online. I didn’t have a lot in mind on what I was really going to do so I just sent it out to whatever companies with whatever openings that I am qualified to. I’ve attended some of the interviews, and omg, some companies really made me not want to do well with my interview.
After weeks of job hunting, I saw a job ad for Edsa Shang. I passed my CV online and then they texted me a day after, telling me I am qualified for an interview. I squealed and checked the site again (where I found the job ad) and I didn’t find the ad, which means the position is not open anymore. The interview process was tedious but I was able to pass it all, and thankfully, I am now a hired employee of this five-star hotel. I am their Marketing Communications Assistant. Not bad for a fresh grad ;)
My first few weeks here in Edsa Shangri-La, Manila was great, and I am hoping for more happy days to come. Happy holidays to everyone!

My Hong Kong Trip in an Instagram summary!
1. (UL) That’s me with my gong cha drink. Paco and I love that brand of tea. We were amazed that it’s available in HK…. well, duh. Haha.
2. (UR) A shot from the top of The Peak. It doesn’t seem cold, but I tell you, we were freezing up there when I took this shot.
3. (LL) A building shot when we stopped over at a corner road. We got lost in HK. Actually, we didn’t. I just panicked and realized that we got down on a wrong station haha.
4. (LR) That’s me and Paco right after the parade in Hong Kong Disneyland. I am really happy to have spent this trip with him. I couldn’t imagine anyone else with me that moment :)
SO THAT’S MY HONG KONG ESCAPADE IN A NUTSHELL!
I really don’t know how to explain what happened to some parts of Visayas after Yolanda typhoon, but I guess we are aware of it since it is all over the news.
This is the best time to show our Filipino spirit and to reach out to those who were totally wiped out by the typhoon. The Filipino Yolanda victims need our help. I’ve been receiving and hearing news about the insane lack of relief goods and man power there, and I could not do anything but feel helpless. To be honest, I really don’t have enough things to donate, but right now, I really just don’t care and I am just giving what I have here at home. Hundreds of families are still left with no clothes and no food for days. It is insane ‘cause anarchy is actually happening in Tacloban and in some parts of Visayas. It kind of reminds me of ‘Lord of the Flies’ and trust me, this is not cute anymore (LOF is darkly cute for me, ok?).
So please donate…a hundred pesos can feed a family already. If you cannot donate monetarily, then you can donate your old clothes and drive them out to the nearest relief operation stations. Check this LINK for the list of organizations accepting donations for the typhoon Yolanda victims.
