Today is Christmas Day, well almost… I saw my name on some of the gifts below the Christmas tree. I’m so excited to open them but have to wait until 12 midnight. Awhile ago I took pictures of Christmas stuffs in the house to get a glimpse of small things, as remembrance of 2010. Even the smallest neglected thing I photographed because I believe they made the entire house looked like it’s Christmas. I got the picture of the gifts and greeting cards that has little note on it. Picture of food and family and dog. Well the gifts, some are big some are small, I wonder which one I’ll make us of. Somehow I put it this way, It’s not how much the gift cost but how much it means to the person you’re giving it. It just so happen that what I like is expensive. I don’t expect though because I hate getting disappointed specially during Holidays haha. The only thing I hate right at this moment is my runny nose and teary eyes it’s killing me. I like the sneezing part though I get high.. I wish I live somewhere cold. It ain’t snowing outside not ever, it’s kind of hot right now, but I guess this is what tropical Chirstmas is.. temperature rising.
Last day, because it’s too crazy to wait for a taxi or an FX, Dabs and I hopped into jeepney, pushing our butts in.. The traffic it’s crazy plodding, nakakainip sobra. Again it’s crazy hot, and the boom box is amazingly nerve wrecking. As we go along, one of the passengers said keep the change besides it’s Christmas. Even it’s noisy I smiled. I hope it’s always Christmas, everybody’s being good. :)
Merry Christmas! :)

After a week, all 150 of us gathered at the pantry for a coffee table meeting. Yes we meet at the pantry, the 32nd floor is still in renovation. Any way, we were all gather to have a brief introduction to our new policy in travel. 64% of our salary will go to the government as "tax" when we exceed 30 days stay in Denmark. How is that. The good thing about it is that HR is going to have agreement with Dk government of some sort to avoid this. Lucky are those who went ahead of this, Vestas shouldered all of their taxes. Complaining will come next after my onshore experience, how could I react if I haven't been into Dk at all? I hope they settle it as early as now. After that, we all received Sony walkman gadget. 16gig, about 10k each.. plus we get christmas packages. :) It's nice to know how generous the company is for the benefit of employees. It's nice to know that the management is supportive.
I wasn't aware at first that we can have this kind of set up and environment in a company. I got a good office, a non-stressful work, a well planned schedule, good Microsoft Training, Onshore experience, plenty of perks...
Thank You :)

I should have also fix my hair too, cause I feel like tired of curly hair. When we were there, just before my attempt to get inside, I asked mama, should I continue this? Then she suggested to ask the stylist first if my hair is ready for a straightening and then I decide from there. Then I realized, if I take care of my curly hair, it could be better, I also considered my hair did last 3 months only. And so I did not went inside the salon.After they had breakfast at Chowking, I treated them at Starbucks. I have this sticker booklet to avail planner and only 8 spots were left to go! I make mama pose, and she loved it haha! mama took toffee nut latte(hot) combined with Tuna pandesal and Maics & I just had Mocha Frap(Grande). Yummy :)
I promised Maics(little sister) that I'll buy her new rubber shoes, but I ended up splitting payment with mama haha! This is the photo of her new rubber shoes which I think is lovely. I told her that I am going to sign her up next 5k marathon to give it a try.Maics really loved this. We had several choices and finally the prettiest pink was pegged. I blab about Nike & Adidas which are popular & a little expensive than her new Fila baby, but she denounce it haha.
We waited until 5pm for my shoes, my feet ached badly and finally we went home with a blast! :)

One of my hobbies is watching horror films. Ghost stories are what interests me the most. I have here few of the readings and clippings from the net.
I'm currently browsing on Ghastly Ghost Site, it kind of screens the photos to evaluate their validity, sometimes they are fake photos that just happens to form an apparitions or used low quality of camera or even the lighting or the formations of things that falsely points us to nonsense. However, I chose only the few who are real.
If you are interested, you can browse the following, and see it for yourself.
1.) A kid that film a ghost
2.)The Lost Child
Follow story at:
6.) The Devil
7.) Granny Ghost
5.) The Vatican Ghost
...Have a spooky day!

Start the day right
Instead of complaining, complement.
Do not find fault of others, instead praise their good deed.
Do not speak of others if your intent is to destroy their state.
If you are oppressed, tell your friends how you feel but never say negative words against your oppressor.
Acknowledge people, appreciation is the meaning of existence.
Never delay what you can do today, perform like you are new to the industry and excite your work.
Exude confidence, trust yourself at all times, but never boast.
Never wobble, work like a professional.
Learn new stuffs every day.
Gain knowledge from talented peers.
Know people who are useful to your career.
Know people who can boost your morale.
Know people who believe in you.
Do not let others define you, define your own.
Do not use others to get what you want, learn from them, use your own talent.
Practice your field of expertise; perfection takes a lot of preparation.
Develop your skills and potential talent, gain knowledge.
Acknowledge failure, learn and live with it.
Give your best at all times, never wait for the next big thing, nothing beats preparation.
Ask guidance. Pray.

We can be who we want to be. We can do what we want to do. We can be the master of our own destiny. People should no lock themselves, we must believe we are free. It only takes courage to step up and be different among the others. There is always a way to become better and fuller. People do not need to hide at the back of other people's shadow. We have a role to fulfill. People must learn to seek their own happiness and satisfaction. If not happy then you cannot be satisfied, people must find own happiness to be satisfied.
We do not tie ourselves to commitment we cannot stand. In the end all who are involved will suffer. There are instances that we must not quit, but there are also times that we should end it all. People needs space to realize what really matters. We need to view it from the top to see if we are still doing what we are ought to do in this lifetime. We can make mistakes, but we must find a way to not do it often, because we just waste our lives to nonsense. Let's enjoy life. Yes it is not easy, it's always a struggle, happiness is what you make the most of your life. Happiness is the essence of our well being, the core reason why we chose to live for the next day, we must not waste our time to cling on things that we are no longer happy of. Life is happy.
If happiness is wine then drink. If happiness is bed then take a slumber on it. If happiness is music then sing. If happiness is a piece of paper & pastel colors then draw. People should not frustrate themselves to try hard, we just need an open mind to accept who we are and what we are capable of doing, we can celebrate our talents and be happy that we have them. People have their own strengths and weaknesses, we just need to embrace those. We don't need to be somebody else. We have our own path, our own destiny. We do not imitate someone else dream, because we may never be satisfied and may never be happy. Again life is happy, we might forget and loose it, that is why we need to step back and realize we can choose to live it.
Some happy people may not live long, but they live it well, 4 times better than those who pretend to be living life they wanted. :)

It was yesterday that Gorio decided to take his haircut. Normally he waits for quite sometime to cut his hair off, 2 months in a minimum. In that case his hair is thickening. He has tail on the lower back left side, that grow fast. We wanted it to be removed, as well as the bangs that made it really hard for him to style using his gel.
After meeting with my derma, we went to Les Pappu, but it was closed in an ODDLY manner. There was a sign that says welcome, but the door was locked. To think that it is inside the mall, and it's weekday. Any way having no luck for the barber, we tried to look for others, we saw Express Barber's cut. Gorio, doesn't liked it, he said the barber might know only one cut that is, barber's cut. Finally we ended up with David's Salon. We took the nuisance, much younger as compered to other senior
Well, his style totally rocks(lol). I mean it, it is too awesome, I told Gorio, you can look that pala, we should have had those cuts before! Imagine Jay Cuenca, Piolo Pascual and Gerard Anderson. He nailed it. I was too overwhelmed that I must say ang pogi mo naman! hahahaha!
The sylist, applied dough on his hair, you guessed, we went to bench and bought the same dough he used. Smells good! Going back to the haircut, I told Gorio to always go to David Salon, it's totally worth the bucks :)

This is my last day in Accenture as I will be facing new adventures outside.
I want to thank all of you who made me who I am,a better and stronger person. I want to thank all my leads who have been understanding and supportive, as well as my peers who have been helpful in developing my technical skills. All I can say is THANK YOU, this is such a great learning experience, growing with you, facing challenges each day and all the fun times we shared together, I will definitely definitely miss those!
To my special friends, I will miss the starbucks days, but I'm positive that I'll still receive an invite from you guys. :)
Thank you KMAD-KX and Groups Team for making this journey worth while.
Au Revoir! Till next time..
This is Frances Enriquez..Now signing off...

It’s like a farmer, you plant and toil. You cannot force the plant to bear fruit if it’s not its season. Yet in the right time you'll harvest, you need to be patient. There are conditions in life that requires lead time for contingency plan, and there are some that shouldn’t be put on hold. I found myself creating new perspective when shattered with all the problems. I change. In the end, God provides more than what you asked of. Because, you deserve what you get. Always.
Failure – I don’t like, but is needed in whatever aspects in life to keep me grounded, stronger, wiser, better.
Happy – :)
Satisfied – when I reached the Happy state
Victory – like winning a marathon, with conviction & perspiration =)
Adversities – jumbled worries
Lowest poiNt – I’m at my worst state; I cry a lot in my lowest point; I pray hard that God will take it away
Strength – I get my strength from God.
Patience & Understanding – not overwhelmed with unfortunate events.
Force – (-) pushy, wanting, needing something to happen badly sooner
(+) unseen energy that conspire the universe to give you all you want
Wait – if it’s reasonable it requires you to wait, if there’s no point JUST LEAVE

Today I bought a Star Studio magazine to sneak on Robin & Marielle's secret wedding. Pictures are good, India looks great, Marielle's pretty, Robin's real good looking guy and that's it. I did not read it yet, I just wanted to see the pictures and how good they look. Any way, the other side of the story goes to the celebrity ball. Almost everybody's thin or skinny or anorexic. Obviously I viewed what I can relate to, beauty.. What is beauty for pinay celebrities? By default they are thin... I guess women can achieve their best figure when there are curves and lines that emphasize their body structure. I'm pretty much convinced that if I gave a little more effort to achieve that figure I can nail it before expiry date. Looking back at the mag, it pretty much encouraged me to get back on track, as much as it terrified me. All I need is a decision and hell lot of guts to stand by it by hook or by crook. Just by the thought of it kills me, diet, exercise & tea..
Tea is actually not good for me since I am anemic. I researched it & the studies showed that tea actually prevents the iron absorption of the blood. That is why I keep it on a minimal. I eat prunes & iron supplement just incase tea intake has huge impact.

When he's tired I hug him tight.
When he's happy he treats me somewhere expensive.
When I'm happy, I cook for him.
When I'm not in good shape, I blame him.
When he is to blame, he'd rather not talk about it.
When i'm mad, he keeps silent and gives me flower.
When he's mad, I'm mad too.
When I say I hate him, he'll say I love you.
When he says he hates me, I must be dreaming. ---xoxo
