Messaging Etiquette

Apparently, there are still people, even with good educational background, who are not familiar with messaging etiquettes.

One mistake it their use of whole sentences in ALL CAPS. They would think it's them EMPHASIZING points, but what they are ignorant of is that ALL CAPS MEAN THAT YOU ARE SHOUTING ESPECIALLY IF THE ENTIRE SENTENCE IS WRITTEN THAT WAY.

Here's my source.

One instance was when a client of mine got frustrated and used it to me and my team members in our Viber Group. When I called his attention, he said that it's just for emphasis and that I shouldn't be too sensitive.

I wanted to correct him again, but it will become fruitless so I just decided to ignore that statement. The sad thing is, while this is a discussion about etiquette, I was deemed too sensitive.

I was reminded that I will not win an argument with someone ignorant.

Now I want a drink.



My husband’s bestfriend passed away a few days ago, and while we are trying to feel his loss, I couldn’t help but pine over a line that I read in the 90s. 

It was from Donnie Wahlberg.

Life is too short to worry about the wrinkles on your jeans.

2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,800 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 30 trips to carry that many people.

Plus What? And How?

More than a day out at sea on my way to kick-off a series of events that I am not even that immersed on, accompanied by someone who freaks out frequently…

Inside my suitcase is a service laptop that can’t acquire any wifi signal, has a usb port that’s too slow to recognize my portable modem and performs as if it has a celeron processor. Not. Happy. At. All.

Today was about pure blessings



It’s amazing how simple joy can overwhelm a person.

I am deeply touched.


Glory to the Almighty for the gifts I have received.

I am really honored.


Praise Him for the things He has shown me during my darkest hours.

I am now full of hope.


I show my gratitude to Him, for giving me loved ones who believed in me up to this day.

I now have renewed confidence.


To those who walked with me during my 2-month journey…

I am humbled by it.


Thank you for the encouraging me to move on.

And for insisting that I move forward.


Words can not really completely express what my heart wants to say.

But I share with you the happiness I feel.


My hiatus is over,

I already found my world.

Sunday Playlist: Back To Basics

I just got back from another out-of-town trip with the family and since there wasn’t any cable TV nor internet connection, I only had my book and my iPod to keep me company during my “me time” over the weekend.

It’s returning to basics, alright.

For my playlist, the notable songs are on the acoustic/soft rock side, just to keep it on topic.
