A Job Well Done

I decided to get a medical certificate before Christmas so I can join my kids to celebrate the Christmas Eve besides my throat is really not doing okay; I have a hard time taking calls because of my voice. At first I thought to just work at Christmas and I will just go home at 11 in the evening to and get back to work at 1 but for me to make sure that I can celebrate it with them, I went to the Doctor and have my throat check, I was diagnosed for Acute Laryngitis.

I went home right away after I submitted my medical certificate at work. I had fun talking to my sister at our small dining table when I heard some gun shots. I hugged Faith right away and commanded my niece and Mj to crawl on the floor, my niece kept on shouting to get the dogs inside the house before the door closed.  After a while, my nephew went out from the bedroom and asked what we were doing, he even said all the people outside looked up because of the fireworks but you here were all crawling and that’s the time we realized it was just some fireworks. I mean who expected for some fireworks in Davao, while we have a very strict rule here that we are not allowed for any firecrackers or fireworks on Christmas and New Year.

Right after the commotion, the clock strikes 12 so I gathered the kids right away to open their surprise gifts. As you can see the video Mj kept on asking what was her gift and Mariel too, no one knows this time.

Indeed, it was nice seeing them gets so excited of their gifts. I could not contain my happiness seeing them scream and so excited of what they will be getting. It was a job well done for me!

Deciding Where to Go Golfing

Golf is a great sport for many reasons. It is a great way for you to unwind if you have a job that is very stressful. It is ideal for people who want to improve their hand-eye coordination. People who are in business or politics will often discuss important and lucrative deals during a round of golf. They find this a much better place to negotiate than in a stuffy boardroom. Do you need to go golfing for any of the reasons that were previously listed? Perhaps you simply enjoy the game of golf and you want to improve. Whatever the case may be, you will need to decide which course you are going to choose. Here are a few things to consider while you are making your decision.

1. How easy is it to get a tee time?

Some golf courses are very popular. Therefore, you need to book your tee time many weeks or months in advance. You might want to do some golfing in the next few days. You will then need to limit the courses you are considering to the ones that have available tee times. You might be planning a big golf outing a few months from now. In this case, you will have an easier time booking a tee time at one of the more popular courses.

2. What type of course do you want to play on?

The great thing about golf is that you can play on 10 courses and none of them will be exactly the same. You will need to determine how easy or difficult the course will be that you are going to play on. What is your level of skill? You may want to find a course that provides more of a challenge for you and the people you are with. You will need to look at the layout of all the courses that you are considering. Hiddenbrooke golf course offers a challenging and fun course for people of all skill levels.

3. How much will your golf outing cost?

You must also take into consideration how much you will need to pay for your golfing excursion. The price that golf courses charge often has to do with the time of year. They tend to charge more when the demand for tee times is higher. Call several courses and compare the prices they charge.

Definitely A Faith’s Day!

After work yesterday, we walked to get to the bank where we can withdraw our salary. It was early in the morning so we don’t worry of the heat of the sun. After we withdraw, we went to a fast food chain to eat our breakfast. It was already 7 in the morning that we finished our breakfast, I was sure that I could not make it to send Faith to her school. Good thing before we walked to the bank, I already informed my niece to give them fare to get to the school so Faith will not be late. I went home without seeing Faith and I missed her!

So instead of seeing my friends at work in the afternoon, I fetched Faith and together we went to my eldest school to pay to her tuition fee and we went to SM right afterwards. Faith asked me for her to play at the Kidzoona the moment we arrived there but they need someone to be there for her, we can’t leave her there alone and I need to buy a pair of shorts because my jeans got wet with the water bottle of Faith at the Jeepney going to Mj’s school. So we choose Zoofari for her instead, we left her there for one hour while I and sister Merlyn went to look for a cheap pair of shorts. We were able to find one at the department store. It was nice because it was a Jumper short. I was also seeing a friend who sold me a gift certificate at Felcris. She needs the money for her son’s birthday so I bought it yesterday.

After Faith enjoying her Zoofari blast, we went out to have our dinner in Kuya J at SM. No picture, it was just a simple dinner for me, Faith and sister Merlyn. We ordered Kare Kare and half roasted chicken which Faith loves so much, she ate a lot last night and it’s very rare for her to eat without insisting her to eat. She must love the roasted chicken. Yesterday was definitely a Faith’s day!
