Late Present for Me

Image from:
Thanks alot to WanTing for sending me a present! I haven't expected it. I thought she was just kidding. I got the mail/letter last last night, I guess that was Thursday, when I'm with my assignment (concentrating XD). My cousin just approached me then hand me a present from unknown. This is very late, suppose to receive this last year.

It's a snail mail! For those who didn't know snail mail, this is what Wikipedia says; Snail mail or smail (from snail + mail) is a dysphemistic retronym—named after the snail with its slow speed—used to refer to letters and missives carried by conventional postal delivery services. The phrase refers to the lag-time between dispatch of a letter and its receipt, versus the virtually instantaneous dispatch and delivery of its electronic equivalent, e-mail. It is also known, more neutrally, as paper mail, postal mail, land mail, or simply mail or post. An earlier term of the same type is surface mail, coined retrospectively after the development of airmail.

This was my first time to receive a snail mail from a foreigner friend :D So yeah, that's it! This is really unexpected. :)

Cheap Tour - Southeast Asia

Our department had our local tour in Baguio last month, and yes, I haven't joined them cause my Mom planned to visit New York, supposing we wouldn't have enough money for me to join this tour.

Yet I got this pasalubongs from my classmates. :D

And last week, I had to absent in one of my subject (which is Entrepreneurship in the Hotel Industry) to go with my Mom to US Embassy in Manila. She had her interview for her US Visa and I need to be with them (Lola) to take good care of their belongings, that's outside the US Embassy's premises. No food, water, cellular phones, usb, headsets, and even colognes, alcohol and perfume. I waited outside for almost 4 hours, under the heat of the sun, staring to other people who passed by in front of me. Atlast, they approached me by 10. Sadly, Mom's visa was denied. Ok, next topic. Mom don't want to talk about it.

After the local tour, CTHM will have an international tour in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. Hopefully, I will be able to get my passport by next month for this tour is on March 29-April 1. I got my appointment letter from DFA and will meet them on Friday, February 17, by 3 in the afternoon. Who'll never be excited about it? I haven't told anybody about this except Reren (one of my close friend in school) and Ate Glad (my seatmate last sem). The itinerary's with me right now.

I want to join this tour. I really want!!! Pretty please!

Here are some of our pictures in our last event. :D
Me, Angel and Reren

One of the major requirement in our subject Events Management is to manage an event in our school. This year, the faculty decided to have an Olympic which means a battle of competitive students in different culinary activities and categories. I have a lot of photos but I decided not to post them, I'm just so tired of everything. :X

Last week, I went to the CAP office here in Batangas. Yes, I am a scholar of the said plan. Mom and Dad have paid the whole amount of one of the scholarship listings, that was 2003, hoping that this company will help them regarding my college expenses. Mom was dismayed when the company was bankrupted last 2004. Just like other parents who invested alot for their children, Mom wanted to have our money back. The officer of CAP Batangas just got my enrollment forms, signed something and gave the forms back to me. She said that I just need to wait for their call to claim my checks, so now, Mom was so excited about the checks, but she knew that everything don't have assurance of when it will be claimed. I have read some blogs regarding this matter, and I saw a lot of concern people looking on ways on how can they claim their payments in CAP. One said, "CAP business is just like gambling in a casino without assurance of ever winning a game..what a waste of hard-earned money invested in CAP.."
I can't blame him/her, besides that's the truth.

PS. I really love opening packages!
