Alone, we can do so little; Together, we can do so much.
I have nothing but gratitude and appreciation to my RM Mirasol Dino and SA Bryan Tan for this elevated success.
For the first time in the branch’s run: 1.We stamped on our rival with a whooping number. 2.We rallied our rank from 7th to 1st area-wide and 3rd to 1st division-wide. 3.We qualified to the travel incentive. (300% versus the target). 4.We reformed the branch’s stereo-typed client market. 5.We housed the staff to a luxury hotel, expense-free. And we did it all in just 3 months!
Thank you Great God for this blessing!

It's my Birthday!

It was my first to celebrate birthday in the office and indeed, ‘twas fun!
Thank you to my BPI Arranque family: Ma’am Mira, Ma’am Luz, Ma’am Teena, Sir Bryan, Ma’am Leonor, Ma’am Lani, Ma’am Karmi and Ma’am Joy for chilling with me. It was a tad busy day for us all and yet you took time throwing me a bash. The periodic singing of the birthday song from morning to dawn was amusing.  Not to discount the inadvertent misspelling of my name to “Joseth”  while you fondly call me “Richmond”. Was that cake really for me? Haha … Anyhow, what I am more pleased was how you welcomed me wholeheartedly as part of your family. It has only been 2 months since we were introduced and yet you all made me feel like I’m home. I look forward to working with you for the next years to come. Cheerfully, I get to spend more birthdays with y’all.

Ma’am Luz, you took me by surprise. It was just precisely what I am gazing to have for the past weeks. =) Thank you!

Finished Strong, Start Stronger!

Yet another  big surprise!

Thank you to my BPI Ylaya-Padre Rada and BPI Jose Abad Santos families for the support. This recognition will not be possible without your help. I share with you this compliment I have received this month. It was an overwhelming surprise since we never pushed much to get this far. I’m glad we all did this for the fun of it.

Much thanks to Ma’am Jennifer, Ma’am Mavic, Ma’am Rhodz, Sir Mark, Ma’am Tin, Ma’am Leonor and Sir Maki, this is for all of us!

Thank you, 2013!

After a long hiatus, I am back in front of my laptop putting into words the very significant episode of my 2013. I have been trying to find my mojo to get an impetus to start what I’ve been longing to do. And I know my being busy should not be an excuse. There's just a myriad of events i would like to share but I honestly have no idea how will I start as I only have one main thing to talk about here, “gratitude”. This year has been a downright reversal of the previous. It was a 360 turn.
Welcoming 2013 for me was liberation from a catastrophic year. I have made major let-downs, caused too much pains, severed ties, made bad decisions, broke promises, and busted self-worth. I considered myself a failure … my world collapsed. Anyhow, I mustered challenging 2013 with positivity, promise and prayer (a lot of it). I greeted the year with a hopeful heart and an open mind.
Starting anew shoved me to start with a clean slate. No more bottled-up emotions. I got exposed, I learned to trust peo…
