This was another busy work week for me. I was given an opportunity to work on a project led by our global team and we’re the lead country. The other country covered is Indonesia. Opportunities like this do not come often so I am thankful for the experience, the learning opportunity, and the chance to network with our K&I and marketing colleagues in several countries. I am also grateful for the trust bestowed upon me by our global and regional K&I leads. The Philippines leg was completed today and next week it will be Indonesia. The project will be completed just in time before we take our vacation.

I am thankful that we are able to complete our requirements for the Schengen Visa application on time. I was just informed yesterday that I need a new bank certificate because the one I had is already a month old. So I went to my bank and made the request this morning. They were offline but promised to work on my request. By 1:30pm, it was already done. I thank the Lord for the bank staff who I knew went out of her way to provide my request. They normally would provide the certificate in a day or two but I got mine in just a few hours.

I am thankful that the parking building near one of our research agencies’ office now has valet parking. It is now easier to get in and get a slot unlike before when I had to wait for at least 30 minutes just to get a spot. Now, I can just leave my car with the valet. I am less stressed going into my meetings and have peace of mind that my car is secured (vs. street parking which is the alternative). Thank you Lord for simple pleasures!

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of taking family photos of my friend’s family. It was a lot of fun! We really enjoyed it even if practically took the whole day. We enjoyed our conversations, our lunch and merienda, and we had fun walking around the village for the shoot. I am grateful for the opportunity to practice my photography and I am thankful for my wonderful subjects.  I am thankful for the great weather, too!

Happy weekend everyone!
