What's Hot and New

Learned this concept of sharing during our Teaming and Visioning workshop last month.

So what's hot and new with me? First, I'm 4 months pregnant and we're all excited about having our baby next year! I don't have gender preference, all I pray for is a healthy and strong baby.

Second, I've got a new job. This one is not planned, but my baby was! So many new things to learn and also people to get to know too.

Lastly, hubby decided to get me my own miMi car. He would like to cut 45 mins of his time spent bringing me to office daily! Kidding aside, it's good to have this new toy knowing I'll work on a different shift. Plus, the free parking is also a deciding factor :)

Farewell to Rosemount

I've been part of Rosemount team for 8 plus years.  About 2 weeks ago, I had to bid the good times and my comfort zone farewell.  Like everyone who's been with a group for quite some time, I also have to say that it's been a difficult decision for me. 

As I tell my story to some of my closest friends and colleagues, I did asked God during my prayer for only 1 sign.  And to my surprise, it was given to me.  So I took all the courage that I have to go through that process of interviewing, anticipating and of course, patiently waiting.  Then it was over, I was hired for another job within the company.

Just 2 days before my last day with the team, to my supposed to be surprise (if only Dindo didn't have to tell me), my team and boss surprised me with a farewell party.  They started it by giving me a balloon boquet and leading me into the conference room with the rest of the team waiting for me.  I was so happy.  It was the time that I felt much appreciated after all those years.

They gave me a scrapbook with all the warm notes and wishes and to my delight, they even have notes coming from the favorite people I've worked with.  This is something that I'll treasure for the rest of my working career.  I thought I need to resign just to get something like this, but good thing I don't have to!

To my Rosemount team and friends, thank you for everything, for all the good and the challenging times.  If it wasn't for this team, I wouldn't be a better person or leader if you will.  I will definitely miss you and the work we've done together.  I hope that the team will continue to become stronger and wiser.  Good luck and God bless us all!

Home Resto - ll Piccino in San Juan

Since we've moved here in San Juan, we tried exploring some home based themed resto around the vicinity.  One nice discovery was Maimee's, and the latest is Il Piccino which was found through a deal site.

All I can say is that we liked the food and the place.  I'll let the rest of the photos tell you why.
