What took it so long?

February 20, 2012
I left the corporate world last year on the last day of January. In less than a week, a Web Marketing Company offered me a job. I accepted that job where my duties include writing Search Engine Optimized articles and PR's for the company. I lasted 5 months there and decided to try my luck abroad. And I'm lucky... After 3 interviews, I'm hired as a Copy writer for an Online Radio Station in Georgia. I could've worked there however, the company didn't start before my Visa expired and up to this date they are not yet operating. Somehow, I still wish that they will hire me when it starts. 

So, I went back to the Philippines ready to take a quick break and go back to the corporate world. I originally planned to start working after my school sem is over. BTW, I was home December 28 and as early as January 4... I'm scheduled for an interview. Isn't that fast?

When my copy writing job in Georgia didn't push through, I asked why God didn't give me the thing that I wanted the most? It's always been my dream to work in the US. I always wanted to bring my family there like how my mother desired to retire on that country. Also, the money I would earn there in a month is too impossible to earn here in a year. God knows how much I dreamt of this all my life and I know I did everything to reach this... I applied, got accepted but why didn't it prosper? Why? I questioned God a lot of times. I continued to ask myself on what part have I failed and on what part have I not given my best. 

My questions were answered now. Maybe, God knows what I wanted the most and that is to be with my family. There are times when I imagine myself in Georgia with all the things that I wanted but I'm alone... with no family to be with. It gives me sad moments that never happened... thank God. 

Right now, I'm an online contributor for Yahoo! Voices and Foreverdope. Also, SM offered me a PR Coordinator position that I accepted. Now, I don't ask God anymore on why I wasn't a copywriter in Georgia but I just thank Him for letting me be who I wanted to be, letting me be where I wanted to stay and letting me have the people I wanted to be with  in my life. =)

CD-R King Baliwag Staff Complaint

February 18, 2012
e-mailed to: support@cdrking.com

To whom it may concern: 

Good Day! 

First off, this is a complaint about a particular CD-R king employee. 

Here's what happened:

Last February 15, 2011, we went to CD-R king SM Baliwag Branch to look for a Money Scanner, usb drum kit and Privacy Screen Filter. Usually CD-R king stores are packed but this particular day, the crowd is not as huge as it is normally. So what my father did was he lined up with only four people in-front of him and the other line also have around five people. There are around four staff that time serving the buyers. We waited for ANNE, the one serving our line. But what she did was she kept on entertaining other costumers before going to the next line. To fully explain this, here's what  ANNE was doing: she entertained the 1st person in our line. That person went to the corner of the store where he pointed the product he wanted to buy. ANNE followed him and went through the normal-paying, warranty, packing and receipt procedure. 

THE THING IS: after  ANNE given a receipt to that person, a customer approached  ANNE , this customer is not the customer that's on the line. Without looking at the line,  ANNE entertained this person and went through the normal-paying, warranty, packing and receipt procedure. Without even THINKING that there are people on the line waiting for her. It was okay at first but  ANNE repeated it again and again as if she don't know that the store posted a "please fall in line here" sign. So the line piled up, my father asked me to line up for him as he checks the product he wanted to buy. Since  ANNE continued to entertain customers not in line, my father reminded  ANNE of the line, that she should serve people there first because they waited long enough. But instead of politely apologizing, she even had the guts to answer back saying: "Sir, hindi naman po nasusunod yang linyang yan." My father answered back saying, "Eh miss, SOP sa mga CD-R king na ang una mong seser-van ay yung nasa pila saka mayroon naman kayong fall in line sign dito dalawa pa nga." What we, people in the line, expected  ANNE to do was to apologize to the customer she entertained and asked that person to line up like we all did. But NO  ANNE did not do that, what  ANNE did was she continued to serve and entertain customers not in the line and ignored us. Of course, pissed for waiting long enough, we asked for the STORE MANAGER, but the store manage is on break as early as 10:45 in the morning. We don't know how breaks are scheduled in your store. Since the manager is on break another staff approached us and helped us test the Money Scanner. We ended up not buying anything because of that  ANNE .

Also, Since we weren't able to talk to the manager, I am writing this letter of complaint to you in the hopes that you would do something about this. I'm not asking you to terminate ANNE but if this happened many times, maybe she should be terminated already. This CD-R king branch is different from other branches but what happened here can reflect every branch. If you won't terminate her, make sure she gets a HUGE SCOLDING
