BuSy As A BeE

Better days are here once again!

A very dear friend has finally come out after more than a month of hibernation in the name of professionalism…whatever the reason may be…it’s an answered prayer for me.

It’s been a week of exclusives…got an exclusive on the latest OFW, Bienvenido Espino Jr. who was handed a death verdict by the Kuwait Court of Cassation for killing a fellow OFW, Jhias Gumapac over a laptop used as a collateral for a loan or some insinuated a love angle was behind it. Another sad news…that brings three OFWs now on the death row.

Kuwait was on a three-day mourning period over the demise of Father Amir Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah…supposedly, it was a holiday but we’re asked to report for work. What a way to pay respect to the dead! I could have used the three-day holiday for some beauty sleep. How I wish!

The weekend proved to be one busy day with the arrival of VP Noli De Castro last Friday. I barely had a wink. As early as 1:00 a.m. we’re at the VIP lounge waiting for him and Usec. Esteban Conejos…The next thing I knew, I was already at the Bayan Palace watching ‘Kabayan’ shaking hands with HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, extending the Philippines’ condolences…then rush hour came, I had to upload all the materials for TVP and Bandila…Whew! Cram…Cram…Cram…This is what I do best!

Sigh! It’s such a busy week…though I didn't forget to think of SoMeOne who’s in Bahrain now…just got a text from him…hope to see you then BaBy…*hugz*

Just in time to curl up and relax after being so BuSy As a BeE…it’s TiMe To Be CaReFrEe!

StAyInG On ThE SiDeLiNe

Sometimes it’s simply good to be on the sideline…a pure spectator as events unfold before your eyes!

For weeks now, I’ve taken a very passive role around me. I just listen to stories, read whatever is written and see the people’s varied reactions to every situation that they’re thrown in. I simply sit and listen as everyone whiles and whines. It feels good to be sanitized from all the intrigues and controversies. Life becomes light as you stay away from the obnoxious stimuli.

But of course, staying on the sideline doesn’t work all the time. You can’t simply remain as a spectator forever. When the situation calls for it, you also have to jump in and join the rest of the crowd. Just know when is the best time.

But for now…I simply opt to stay on the sideline as everyone does his/her own antics to the delight of other spectators like me.

Staying on the sideline gives you an ample time to clear your mind…As you step back a little farther; you would see things and people around you at a better perspective than staring too close at them, making you myopic or cross-eyed.

For now…I’m just enjoying the sight and scent of the captivating Tulips…while StAyInG On ThE SiDeLiNe... everything will CeRTaInLy Be FiNe!
