When life gets tough and you almost feel like giving up, remember that God is with you and He will never leave you. :)
Thank you Lord for this hike. Thank you for all the realizations. I will strive to be a better person and will always give my best in everything I do. :) #hike #mttalamitam

Overgrown palace, Poland
In 1910, this grand palace was built as a home for Polish Royalty. The rest of the century proved uncertain for the country and under communist rule the palace became an agricultural school, as well as a home for mentally handicapped adults and children. The former palace was deserted following the fall of the USSR.

The Titanic wreck
The titanic took its first and last voyage in April, 1912. It was not until 73 years later that the decaying wreck of what was once the greatest ship in the world was discovered. The 1,500 souls lost with the vessel had been devoured by sea life, leaving behind a ghost ship.

Isang taon mahigit na ko sa trabaho ko.Isang taon na akong nagtatrabaho na parang Journalist/Documentor/Fisheries Technician/Administrative Officer na sobrang layo sa tinapos ko kaya sobra kong nagpapasalamat sa Diyos nung binigyan Niya ko ng pagkakataon na makakahanap ng lilipatan at konektado pa sa kursong tinapos ko.
In a span of one year, syempre, dahil para nga kong si Superwoman, ang dami ko ng naexperience at nagawa na di ko talaga expected. Isa na dito yung super straight na pagsusulat ng isang English Feature article.
Hindi naman bago sakin ang pagsusulat. Noong highschool, News writer ako pero more on Copyreading and Headline Writing tapos in Filipino. Hindi naman sa hirap ako sa English pero mahal ko ang wikang Filipino. JOKE. Ayoko lang talaga duguin. Hello, buwan-buwan na kaya kong dinudugo tapos magsusulat pa ko ng English para duguin? Wag na lang oy. Pero tinamaan nga ng magaling, ayun, dahil trabaho, kailangan ko talaga magsulat. Bale ito pala yung nagawa ko. Noong June pa to. Kanina ko lang ulit nabasa kasi nag-aayos na ko ng files. Hihi. Sana magusutuhan niyo. WHAT.
In the eyes of the so-called “Master of Powerpoint”
Jaira Ryea B. Molina
Information Officer, Regional Fisheries Information Staff
Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Region 4A
Eight years. This is the span of time that I have been making powerpoint presentations. From the simplest to the most elegant design; from the dullest to the most exciting effects; up to the most unexpected powerpoint presentations you could imagine. All those kinds of presentations were already made by yours truly. Because of that, I became so full that I even call myself “the Master of Powerpoint”. Little did I know, everything will be changed because of a certain training.
I am currently working at the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Region 4A (BFAR 4A) and was designated as an Information Officer under the Regional Fisheries Information Staff. Our section is responsible for the information dissemination and presentation of current events in our office. As part of strengthening and organizing the flow of information at the office, we conducted a training entitled “Seminar-Workshop on Preparing and Delivering Effective Powerpoint Presentations”.
When I heard about it, I felt that I should not be a participant and just be in the secretariat since we organized the said training. At the same time, I have these thoughts of Alam ko na yan kaya wag na lang. But then, when the training day came, everything changed in just a snap.
On the first day, we were bombarded with mind-blowing activities that really tickled our brains. We had a workshop on Planning the Presentation where we needed to make an outline for our chosen topic. As for our group, which was specifically a two-man team, we picked seaweeds because my partner is currently involved in the Seaweed Laboratory Project. As I’ve said, I’m very experienced on making powerpoint presentations and making an outline is not new to me. So we made one and I was very positive that there may be some minor revisions but it was already good for presenting.
Consultation was made for every group during and after the workshop. When it was our turn, I confidently explained our outline as well as our purpose for presenting which was to inform. After that, our guest speaker gave his comments and asked several questions that made us think that there may be some more information that are still needed for our presentation. The minor revisions that I was expecting turned into a major revision - we needed to change our outline as well as our title.
The next thing we did was designing the presentation where we needed to make an appealing presentation, with good color combination, proper font types and appropriate effects, on our own without the use of built-in Microsoft templates. In my case, I didn’t have any problem on this since I already make my own original slideshow templates.
Our lectures during the first day ended and we were given an assignment to make a powerpoint presentation that will be presented on the last day of the training. Everybody got busy on their presentations and we didn’t even notice the beautiful swimming pool and other attractions in the training venue because of our eagerness to finish the expected output.
Since we needed to revise our outline, we started late in designing our presentation. We finished our outline because according to what we have learned, planning is the most essential part of making a presentation. We need to carefully plan every detail of our topic so that we can execute and deliver our presentation properly.
It was already 1:00 a.m. when we finished the design of our presentation. The workshop on designing helped me improve my designing skills specifically on combining colors. Our theme was inspired by our very own topic which was seaweeds.
The last day of our training came where we needed to present our output. But before that, we had a discussion regarding the Delivery of the Presentation. The speaker talked about on how we could effectively deliver our presentation. After that, draw lots was made to determine the order of the presentation by group. Our group was the 4th presenter so we had the chance to review our presentation as well as observe the other groups before us.
As for me, I’m really the type of person who is always given the task of making a powerpoint presentation but not actually presenting it. So, when given the chance to present, I felt the nervousness dwelling inside of me. That I just wanted to disappear so I can have an excuse not to present. But then, the fear I had, the nervousness I felt, I needed to conquer it for the betterment of myself as well as to achieve the goal of this training, and that is to effectively prepare and deliver a powerpoint presentation.
Our turn came for the presentation and I was the first to speak. I could say that we had a smooth flow during presenting even though we encountered some technical difficulties. During the deliberation, several mistakes were pointed out by the critic panel but surely, these will make us better speakers someday. On a good note, the design of our presentation was commended by the guest speaker and he said he was impressed since we really applied what we have learned during the workshop on designing.
There are so many things we need to learn in this world. Maybe you are good at something now but one day you’ll realize that you cannot only be good at it but you can become one of the bests in the future. As for me, I may have called myself as the Master of Powerpoint once, but now, I don’t need to put label on myself. I just continuously strive on making effective presentations and maybe deliver it properly, if given the chance again, with the use of the things I learned during the training.
Yun lang naman. Natuwa lang ako kasi kaya naman pala. Bale next time na lang ulit kami magkikita ng pagsusulat kung bibigyan ng pagkakataon. :D
Gusto ko lang batiin yung kaibigan ko. Hehe. :3
Una sa lahat, pasensya na kung wala akong picture natin. HAHA. Wala akong mahanap e. Ayun. Dahil na-touch talaga ko nung nagblog ka tungkol sa akin. Astig. Pangalawa, I’ve been kasi dapat may event kami sa school ngayon. Eh kaso nagsuspend. Huhu. Saturday ko pa dapat to gagawin, eh may time naman na ko kaya ngayon ko na ginawa.
Nagkakilala kami sa simbahan. Tapos naging close. Hindi ko rin alam kung paano kami naging close netong taong to. Haha. Siguro dail nagclick kami. Sa sakristan pa lang, nagkasama na kami nyan. Hanggang ngayon sa YFC pagkasama kami. Pero iiwan na ko nyan, magco-crossover na yan e. HAHAHAHAHAHA.
Nagkatampuhan din kami nyan. Bata pa kami na kaya hindi ko na matandaan ang dahilan. Actually, pilit kong inaalala kung ano talaga yung dahilan. Mahina talaga ang memorya ko. At ayaw na rin siguro sa akin ipaalala. Hahaha. Sa amin, actually.
Wala naman akong gaanong special na sasabihin. Babatiin lang kita. Happy birthday, Jaira! :) Nawa’y naging masaya ka sa iyong kaarawan. God bless sa career mo. Smile lang palagi. At wag na masyadong mastress sa logistics. HAHAHAHA. Linya mo yan e. Bond us soon? Nagugutom na ko. Hahahahahahahahahahaha. Again, happiest birthday to youuuu. :*
Nabuhay ang Tumblr ko dahil dito! Juice colored. Kung di mo pa sinabi na may post ka para sakin, di ko talaga to mababasa. So inactive. Kay God na kasi ko active. AMEN ba tayo dyan? :)
Anyway, words couldn’t express how much grateful I am. Itong taong to, ang dami na talaga naming napagsamahan. As in bata pa lang tapos nagkaroon ng away-bata tapos ngayon, magkasama pa rin. Sobrang galing lang talaga ni God kasi parang ayaw talaga kami paghiwalayin nito at mukhang sabay pa kami magcocrossover. Yes, wala pa kong balak. Baka hintayin ko nga kayo. WHAT. HAHAHA.
Anyway, kulang ang word na “salamat” para sa post na to kasi sobra talagang unexpected para sa part ko. Yung tipong napakanta ko ng “sino ba naman ako para gawan ng post?” wow. So much feels. Hahaha. Tapos ang cool pa ng message Ugh. I just can’t.
Di na ko papakastress sa logistics. Pangako yan. Pakiramdam ko kasi, the more nasstress ako, the more na papanget ako. WHAT. HAHAHA. At tsaka may papalit na rin sakin so di na nga kailangan mastress. Yes. we’ll bond soon. Sure yan. :D God bless! :D
Mandatory birthday selfie. What.
Ang birthday na to ang pinakamemorable sa lahat ng birthday na dumaan sa buhay ko kasi sobrang dami ng feels na dinaig pa ang TFIOS. Yung tipong nasa byahe ako kanina tapos next thing I know, bigla na lang akong umiiyak. How adik is that? Hahaha. Tapos pag-uwi ko sa bahay, umiiyak pa rin ako sa nanay ko then naghahanap na ko ng Happy Pao, yung baboy. Tingin ko kasi, pag bumili ko nun, magiging masaya na ko pero di naman ako nabilhan.
Ewan ko kung anong magic ang dala ng araw na to na pakiramdam ko ang dami lang pinarealize. Siguro ito na yung gift sakin ni God para mas maging matatag pa ko sa mga susunod na araw.
Maraming salamat sa lahat ng mga nakaalala. Mahal ko kayo pati ni God. :) 21 na ang seksi at maganda. Hahaha.
#21st #birthday #selfie
Live na live akong nasa office habang tinatype ko tong post na to. Wala pa rin kasi kong ginagawa. Sabi nila ayusin ko raw yung website, di naman binibigay yung layout. Tapos wala rin yung boss ko so hayahay ang buhay.
Ilang days na lang, tatanda na ulit ako. I’m turning 21 beybe! Debut ko na. As of now, ang talagang nakaset ko lang na plano ay maliit na handaan with officemates. Actually, ayoko talaga maghanda kaya lang it turned out na ito na yung huling buwan ko sa opisina kaya naging mandatory talaga ang paghahanda ko. Bale birthday/despedida na ang mangyayari.
Dahil malapit na ko mag-21 at feeling lalaki ako kaya palagay ko ito talaga ang tunay na debut, gusto ko sana makasama lahat ng naging parte kung sino ko ngayon:
Yung Youth For Christ o YFC na nagpakilala at nagpalalim ng faith ko kay God.
Yung family ko na sumoporta sa lahat ng gusto kong gawin.
Yung high school friends ko na nakakaalam kung bakit ako ganito ngayon.
Yung college friends ko na nagturo sakin para maging practical sa buhay.
Yung tumblr friends ko na nagdulot ng saya sa boring kong buhay. Special mention ang SAMAKADA, TTH, PPKT at Kamoteng Bahay Troopers.
Yung 9th Floor Up! Barkadahan na nabuo sa SSS nung nag-OJT ko.
Yung boardmates ko na pinakita sakin na babae pala ko and I should act one.
Hindi ko alam paano ko hahatiin ang sarili ko kasi (1) Ang dami (2) Ang gastos (3) Walang time. Sana lang dumating yung time na pwede ko ulit sila makasama kasi miss ko na sila. Bukod dun, gusto ko rin sila pasalamatan sa mga naiambag nila sa buhay ko. Masaya o malungkot. Maganda o panget. At iba pa.
Bale pre-birthday echos ko to. Sana lang may makasama ko sa mga yan. Best birthday gift ever pag nagkataon. See you soonest friends! :)

Kung kailan ka sinisipag gumawa ng mga gawain, doon ka walang magamit. Tapos pag petiks mode ka, lahat ng pwede mong magamit, nakakalat lang sa tabi.
Siguro ganun nga talaga yun no. Marerealize mo lang ang worth ng isang bagay o tao pag wala na siya. Yung akala mong wala siyang silbi sayo pero siya pa pala ang sasagip sayo kapag nawawala ka na. Kaya, wag mo i-take for granted ang lahat ng darating sayo. Bagay man yan o tao.
