Bavaria Premium Beer

Bavaria has been brewing its own taste of beer for over 300 years. That makes it 7 generations of perfecting quality beer brewed by using the finest mineral water from their own spring. Bavaria is focused on following its family traditions of brewing high quality beers for the present and future generations to come. It prides in brewing its finest pilsner since 1719 and introducing the first truly alcohol-free beer in 1978. With a deep and rich history, the company wants to share their precious creations to the world.

Here in the Philippines, we introduce Bavaria Premium as our flagship product from the Bavaria product line-up. It is a classic pilsner perfect for the classic Filipino. A perfect night cap after a long day. It has a profile of a premium and clear lager where you will experience the taste of a real beer: premium malts, hops, and the freshest spring water from Holland. Refreshing and light, this beer will make you feel like you’re bathing in the fresh water springs of Bavaria. Bavaria Premium is coming your way and is now available in 7-11 outlets near you.

Other Bavaria products coming your way are the 8.6 and Bavaria 0.0% Malt Drink. 8.6 which has an alcohol content of 8.6% (Thus the name) is a strong and edgy blonde ale that will make you feel a special buzz from a special brew. For those who are looking for a more wholesome night, we will be launching the first ever Bavaria 0.0% Malt Drink that comes in 3 flavors: Original, Peach, and Pomegranate. An alcohol-free alternative great for any party.

Each of these variants has its own Bavarian twist, so watch out for these and experience Bavaria soon in establishments near you! Be Bold, Be Bavaria.

As usual

I have always been fascinated about my Myers-Briggs personality type because the profile I'm getting has been mostly accurate and mind blowing (unless I'm subconsciously being swayed to agree with it. wow).

Lately, my depressed and stressed (as usual) state at work has led me to contemplate (YET AGAIN) on my career path. Am I in the right place? Is my personality fit for this kind of job? You know, the usual. hahaha

Ten years ago, I took my first MBPT and got typed as an ISFJ (Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, Judging). To date, I've taken the test thrice cos I kept on forgetting what I got, and so far I've been getting the same results -- after rummaging through my email for my past scores to validate. To me that means I'm pretty consistent with how I view things, so I decided to fully dwell on it to better understand myself and to probably be more considerate of my situation (like I need any of that). In short, let me rely on my MB personality type to solve my internal issues wahahaha.

"Don't be too hard on yourself"

"It's okay. You're still learning"

"Take your time"

...are three of the things I hear a lot from my sups whenever I'm not delivering well (which is always). I hate it cos I don't think I'm being too hard on myself, that I should still be in the learning phase, and that I have enough time to take. I hate it because I suck. Isn't it frustrating when you're failing so bad at something? Haha

"That's just at the beginning"

Right. That's what they all say. How long is the beginning. When will I get used to it? Here's to hoping my learning curve is directly proportional to my patience. Argh.

Anyway, I'm not a fan of challenges cos I'm one to get easily discouraged. As in easily. But Performance Testing is one such skill I sincerely want to master NAAAKS. Being that it feels like I already lost my developer mojo permanently haha and I have no place to stick in the IT industry, huhu I need shelter.

Oh well, I could always wander in the arts department right? In fact I have a potential project coming up soon and it's gonna be from an old client! Isn't it great? Two of my clients have tapped me for new projects! I am so honored. I'm actually building rapport charrrrr. And all of this because I decided to work pro-bono on my first children's book project. Life do open doors for the passionate. joke lang. anuba. birthday ko okay. haha

I'm ending this here cos this has been on drafts for too long, my mind wants to blabber about other things already haha.ha.ha.

Manila, get ready for UberCHOPPER this Saturday!

Just spreading the news I received in the mail today! Uber Manila has teamed up with Airtrav (a local company operating air charter services) to give us a one of a kind experience of taking off with a chopper and going on an aerial tour of the metro!

This Saturday, November 21, 2015 from 8am to 10am-- fire up your Uber app and request for an UberCHOPPER! Simple right? An UberBLACK will then take you and your friends to the helipad.

Other important information (that I'm quoting from the Uber newsroom):

  • When you request, make sure you and your friends are at the same pick-up location and ready to go. Your car will only pick up at one location and will wait a maximum of 5 minutes.
  • Strictly limited to 3 passengers per flight (you plus 2 of your friends)
  • UberCHOPPER will fly a fixed 10-minute route– you will not be able to request your own destination
  • Refreshments will be provided and you’ll get a free UberBLACK ride to take you back home once you’re done
  • All fliers must be at least 18 years or older and should be a Filipino citizen
  • You must bring a Philippine government-issued ID indicating your date of birth (Please have your Philippine ID with you or you will not be allowed to board the flight)
  • Uber is not a direct air carrier
  • All air services advertised will be provided free of charge by Airtrav. Uber has no responsibility or liability for any transportation services provided to you by third party providers.
  • If the weather doesn’t permit, UberCHOPPER will be rescheduled to a later date
Take note, this isn't a transportation service, it's a TOUR. :D

Thinking of Blade? Let's all hope Uber's heading that way! :D

Everything is awesome

Channeling Mary Kate McDevitt haha
//Work related I still feel like I'm being treated with some level of hazard cos I may screw things up (again). I hate the feeling, like I can't do anything right, but the good news is that they're careful not to put too much load on me cos I might just break... the system. Errr. I'm still having a hard time coming to grips that I have so much to redeem while I'm here. Cos I'm dead sure I wasn't credited with anything good while I was working offshore (well that's a conservative hunch). I've been asking myself if I really have the potential in this practice and even though I'd like to think that yeah, I kinda do otherwise I won't be sticking in the team for long, I'm still feeling so anxious about it. Why can't I learn faster? Why do I get stuck a lot? Is it even normal to be such a failure at this? Where did my heart go? Am I really suited for the IT industry? Anuraw. HAHA

To be honest, I really feel challenged to do good but there's only so much I can do in the 9 hours I'm in the office, and as much as I want to pull out some extra hours to do more, it'll be a damn hassle having to ask people to go home ahead and just come back for me after err, 4 hours? Haha. (read: carpool). So anyway, I'm not feeling too good about how I'm performing at work so there. :( Huhu

//Life in general is okay. Three weeks down and I can say I've warmed up enough to the people around me. I thought it was gonna be hard cos I'm such an awkward penguin but thank God every one here is just plain awesome. Naks. I mean they're so easy to get along with, all I did was tag along and next thing we're enjoying steak or home cooked food and laughing together.

//Health wise... I don't even wanna go here but I need to discuss this (with myself). I've gained an ugly 2 kilos and have more to gain if I don't control my food intake in this paradise hahaha. I just freakin love to eat and I didn't want to deprive myself! What I need to do is probably take some pills HAHA or drink some slimming tea HAHA or subscribe to some fitness videos at youtube HAHA or do the Drop 10 daily HAHA or better yet just forget about it cos I'm having fun gaining weight anyway. Argh. Nope. The pants I brought here are all so ill-fitted now. They used to hang loose when they're on me for quite some hours but now they're dead tight the entire day. The button down blouse I brought is now literally all buttoned down for good cos life is harder trying to keep them on. HAHA haaay.

Sorry for adding random pictures in between. They're from the short walks with my lunchmates after lunch. :)

I thank God that the down times I'm feeling at work are mostly short-lived largely because everywhere I look there's something to take inspiration from, to pause looking at, and to get some energy and motivation to do better and work harder. The scenery is perfect, the food is awesome, the people are nice. There's that, and God is so good for allowing me to take this opportunity. Luv yahh <3

Have a happy week ahead! <3

Daylight Savings Time

Can't really think of any title right now so yeah, DST. It's just something random that came to mind in hopes of avoiding another 'what's up' or 'heya' entry (I've tons already, my creativity is dying). Okaaaaay, so that it won't be too random, I'll just have to say something about it right?!

So DST happened yesterday at this part of the globe, and who knows where else (I don't really care), meaning the time was pulled back by an hour. I don't really know why, too lazy to research but hooray for extra sleep yeah? Or extra cleaning time! Yesterday was a major major cleaning day. Much more major than the cleaning I did the first week I arrived here (mostly flatting out boxes haha). We freakin shampooed the carpets at the living room and the hallway. While it wasn't spotless clean, it was definitely brighter than when I arrived here haha! Also, yeyy for learning to use another home appliance! Ze carpet shampooer, whatever you call that.

I'm just starting my third week here in the US and so far I am very very impressed at how they manage homes here. There's just too much appliance! Back at home we only have a refrigerator, a stove, and an oven. Super basic tropical third world necessities HAHA. But here they usually have a two door fridge, a dishwasher, a microwave, an electric stove burner, a washing machine, a dryer, a vacuum cleaner, a sink with garbage disposal, and an automatic garage door. Everything is pretty much plugged and are setup for convenience. And those are just the basics.

And since helpers aren't uso here, I have to do everything on my own. Wash my own laundry, clean my own platessss (antakaw eh), fix my bed, iron my clothes, and generally help maintain the entire house. Mind you, it is fun! I particularly like cleaning the kitchen and arranging stuff. I'm partly OC so I try to arrange everything and keep the symmetry and color balance in check. Nakakainis ang arte diba, and since I don't have money for furniture, I'll just keep putting things in order haha. I want to replace the curtain valance here in my room though argh.

Anywaaaay, I'm really here to brag about my latest snap and my favorite fall photo so far. I was surprised how this photo came out since it was a quick shot while we're driving away from the house. I love how the focus of the picture is on the tree and how everything around it seems to be moving towards it; the clouds, the angle of the roofs, the street on the left, and even the shadows. Like the tree is something magical that sucks the energy around it to keep it from falling (pun intended).The lamp post may be vertical but it breaks the angle just fine, it even stands in the center of the pine tree behind it. Wala lang jinajustify ko lang HAHA.

These are times I want to challenge myself if I really take good photos or everything around me is just picture perfect. HAHA Pero malamang let's stick to the latter cos that's what it most definitely is. haha

This is, by the way, the house in front of us. Look, it's for sale! XD

Also, I kindof gained two kilos already ARGH. I need to exercise. #asa
