Random Thoughts

There are many things that I would like to write about in my main blog but I have so little time to do it. Thus, I have decided to create a post that contains random thoughts running into my mind right now. Before I do it, let me first send my gratitude to my regular visitors and readers who never stopped dropping by The Coffee Chic despite the fact that I'm not able to reciprocate the action. Don't worry because I promise to return the favor once I complete all my school requirements. Forgive me for not being "fair" these days.  




When I started blogging, all I ever thought about was having an avenue where I can share my stories and experiences without even caring what other people may say. It was never in my plan to create multiple blog sites as it will require so much time, patience and understanding. But for the past months, I have realized that blogging is really fun. There are many great things I've come to know because of my being active in the blogosphere. These things motivated me to create more blogs with niche which will enable me to relate more with other people.

2. Feasibility Study Defense on Saturday

One more sleep and I will be facing the panel for my FS defense. My feasibility study is all about creating a coffee shop in Davao city. It is the primary reason why I am not getting enough time for my blogging passion. There were numerous requirements and materials that kept me busy for the past weeks. Just last Monday, I have finally submitted my paper. It's not the final FS yet since the panel will need to check it first. My "The Coffee Lounge: Feasibility Study" is not perfect but I know it's something that will make me pass my Management Consultancy Subject (LOL).

3. On-the-Job Training at B.O.C.

I have already completed 36 hours for my OJT in Bank of Commerce. I must say, those hours were the most tiresome yet fun times in my college life. My duty starts at 8:30 AM and ends on 12:30 PM. Yes, I only have 4 hours of OJT everyday which is good since I still have my afternoons to breathe. Well, except on Tuesdays and Thursdays when my classes are from 1PM-9PM. Despite my very hectic schedule, I am not complaining. Instead, I am enjoying the ride. I'm hoping to finish my OJT on the first week of March.


I have posted a list of different Chinese proverbs on my Lifestyle blog. My most favorite of all is: "No sweet without sweat." It is the saying that I always repeat to myself whenever I feel like giving up. It serves as a reminder for me. If I really want to graduate on March 2012, then I have to work hard for it. As what we Filipinos always say, "No pain, no gain." 


In line with the celebration of the Chinese New Year, I am hosting a $100 CNY Cash Giveaway which is open worldwide. The contest went live last January 23 and it will be ending on the 29th. If you haven't joined the fun yet, feel free to visit my giveaways blog. At the same time, I have also two major sweepstakes that will go live on the February 1. Win an iPad 2 open for US only and $650 Cash open WW. Don't forget to visit I ♥ Giveaways for a chance to win $50 - One day only (Friday EST time)!


6. Sweet Advocate's Photo Contest

  21. Thoughts just pour out, ready to put them in writing for friends, associates, or even a family member to be informed, educated or even entertained depending on topic presented. We're not acquainted yet, but your thoughts are prolific. Thus, they need to be shared and be appreciated. I know you're already an experienced blogger. Happy blogging.
