Opportunities and Surprises

Post Content

“Opportunity knocks at the strangest times, It’s not the time that matters but how you answer the door.” Steve Gray

I was presented with an opportunity to do something that I enjoy to do leisurely, as a job. Guess I’ve been playing safe in my life a whole lot that’s why behind the gleeful excitement lies the questions like “Is this really happening? Is this a good thing, a refreshing change? Can I handle it?” etc etc.

Then again, as the saying goes “The key to good decision making is not knowledge. It’s whether our work fulfills us.” by Malcolm Gladwell, I know there has NEVER been a good time to say YES to opportunity than NOW. For now I take it one day at a time and just patiently wait for Life to unfold it’s beautiful plans before my eyes. *hopeful smiles*

And as if getting a compliment from my boss saying he visited this blog and saw how passionate I am with what I’m doing (enough to offer me to write for commercial use!) is not enough… I received this pretty little gift box from my darling B!

What opportunities did you welcome with your arms wide open? What opportunities did you fail to acknowledge? How is it working out for you? Have you been genuinely surprised lately? I’d love to know. xx

WordPress is back!

Today is a very special Monday.  It’s been 2 weeks since Dollhouse Diary has been quiet. Blame it on my 9-5 job but it also has something to do with the bug with my WordPress plugin. I couldn’t login on the website, not even on their iPad app. I even panicked thinking someone has hacked my account. I was relieved to know that it’s just a bug and it’s been fixed. I have tons of backlogs from events and Palawan trip I’ve been to and I’ve been meaning to share it with you.

Thank you for bearing with us and for continuously supporting by visiting Dollhouse Diary.

Aside from my B finally fixing the bug in WordPress (I owe you a bunch!), I made a few quirky little discoveries.

* an office friend also uses phosphorous to eliminate bad odors from fart or poop smell (excuse me! hahaha)
* another office friend likes milk tea which is cute because I can only imagine it’s good but I can’t drink it because of my tummy although I’m not lactose intolerant
* another office friend is my buddy in eating ‘diet’ food and willing to walk the stairs with me from 22nd floor down to 7th! Huzzah!
* I’m in love with cute little milk cartons and I happen to try a local farm fresh milk! Can’t wait to share it with my B.

On another note, we are already preparing for our upcoming Boracay trip which will be the last summer getaway this year. One of the major plans I have in spending my time at the beach is spoiling myself reading my favorite magazine – Cosmopolitan Philippines! After eons of years, I finally gave in and purchased another copy yet again with Anne Curtis on the May 2012 cover issue. I can’t wait to open it and read every part of this issue. I just think my beach trip will be awesome!

How have you been? What have you been up to? Hope all is awesome with you!
