Entries for November, 2018

Across the night sky

I find a shooting star

Leaping through dark clouds

emitting the brightest of light

Too fast to hold

Too far to reach

I closed my eyes

and made a wish

for that star to shine it's brightest

for unanswered wishes come true

no matter how fast you are

or how far you go

the dark clouds

shall always remember

that your light once flickered

through this path. ~ cloudy

so someone gave us fresh fish. like a medium bucket full. and we didn't know what to do with it. hahaha. i mean i watch them clean em up in the market but never tried it at home. didn't even know if we have to remove all the scales or whatever. hassle! well, just thankful for the gift. at least there's something that we can cook quickly. now how to remove that fishy stench on my hand is another story. sigh.

Recently travelled to Bilbao, Spain end of September to attend a conference and then to Prague for our annual leadership strategy meeting. Although we worked most of the time, we did manage to go around to do some sightseeing. Honestly, out of the countries I had the opportunity to go to I am most impressed at those in Europe. You are like walking inside a history book. The old structures are amazing. Buildings, churches, cobblestoned streets. Just walking around feels very romantic kahit wala kang kaholding hands. Pwede na sa imagination. Hehehe

Bilbao, Spain- is an industrial port city in Northern Spain. It is surrounded by great architecture with the iconic building Guggenheim Museum as one of the main attractions of the city. The Casco Viejo is the medieval old quarter where you can find gothic inspired structures. La Ribera market has food stalls in a boatlike waterfront structure, flanked by pintxo bars serving Basque tapas on sticks. A market that accepts credit card when you buy meat. =)

Prague, Czech Republic - is the largest city and the capital of the Czech Republic. The heart of it's historic core is the Old Town Square where you can find colorful Baroque buildings, Gothic churches and the Medieval Astronomical clock which gives an animated hourly show. The Charles Bridge built in the 14th century is lined up with statues of Catholic Saints which is best to be visited early morning as it can get really touristy and crowded. 

I am looking forward to 2019 travel prospects. They are looking at Argentina at this point. Interesting!

On a side note, 4Q Finance deliverables is driving me crazy. I need a long vacation! 3 global projects ongoing, I am the executive sponsor for one and this project is critical to the ISO 45001 implementation next year. So ano na? I need wine and cheese or Soju. hahaha
