Pilipinas MindGuru: Offering Excellence Beyond the Classroom

Education is the greatest gift our parents can ever give us, that was the mantra that my Mom and my Grandmother instilled in us as children. They taught us that nothing beats the value of a good education since it would be your weapon to the outside world in surviving all the hurdles life may throw your way in the future.

Growing up, My Mom being a solo parent did her best in giving us the best that she can afford by enrolling us in the best tertiary school near our residence and making us join various summer workshops which would hone our skills beyond the four walls of the classroom. Me and my sister would usually dabble in piano classes, taekwondo, swimming and other Summer Enrichment Programs which can help us not only socialize but also hone our other skills like “Teamwork”, “Coordination”, “Balance” etc.

Pursuing your Passion

How can I be happy? This is one of the most commonly asked questions among millennials nowadays. To be honest, the answer is simple. You just have to be honest with yourself. Do whatever makes you happy and pursue your passions. Don’t do it just because of the monetary compensation it offers since it would not give you fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day if that’s your only driving force.

You should assess your passions early on and work towards making a living by pursuing your passion and only then will the rest follow. A lot of events had once again transpired for me this past few weeks from juggling meetings here and there to finally defending my thesis for my Graduate School. YAS πŸ™‚ Another milestone unlocked! πŸ™‚

Choose a Guy with the Saktong Pogi Looks! :)

They say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder right? So why do girls chase after those good looking modelesque guys with those taut 6 pack washboard abs πŸ™‚ Why not go for those guys who have a great sense of humor? An Intelligent Mind with whom you can have intellectual discourses with and someone with that CONFIDENCE X Factor? πŸ™‚

Before you even widen your eyes and ask yourself if you read it right, let’s clear one thing: “sakto” shouldn’t be taken as synonymous to “average.” Sure, average guys are still capable of attracting certain girls, but the truth isΒ most women aren’t satisfied with the basics. Men being merelyΒ pogi isn’t that exciting for them anymore either. “We want more!” πŸ™‚ Comes the clamor of more and more women of this generation.

FILIPINO BARTENDERS COMPETE IN THE FINAL DIAGEO RESERVE WORLD CLASS CHALLENGE

It has been a whirlwind of events for me the past few weeks since I made it a point that this year will be the year that I would go out of my comfort zone and widen my horizons. Guess it’s time to face my fears πŸ™‚Β 

Since I have always been an extroverted person by nature, going to various events had always been I guess second nature to me however due to time and financial constraints adventures and travels were kinda put on hold or limited to just one or two travels per year πŸ™‚Β 

However since I’m almost on my last stretch of my schooling now and my weekends are mostly free now I have already started embarking on some milestones and adventures these past few weeks πŸ™‚

Unwind and Relax with Good Food and Good Music at SOMA Bistro in Green Sun Hotel

I missed blogging bigtime! πŸ™‚ Since I was super busy these past 2 weeks.Β I committed myself attend an event just once a week or once in two weeks since I also need time to buy gifts, wrap them all, deliver them to my friends and of course read up on those books on my to read list and also catch up on my much needed zzzz’s and so that I do not get stuck with so much blog backlog πŸ™‚

Anyway, just last week I was invited over to have some drinks and listen to some good music over dinner at SOMA Bistro Cafe in Green Sun Hotel. Since the time was after work which was around 7pm I decided to give it a go especially since I personally know the PR behind this πŸ™‚Β
