Yes, I’m finally done with PMPs for end of year. I’ll just be waiting for the D’s verdict. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I don’t want to entertain his questions (Where’s your data? Where’s your evidence?!) wahaha. Really, I just wish for this to end. It’s so draining already. I’d like to focus on other things for the team.


Our team was lucky enough to sign up for Microsoft’s Techfest{2008} last January 22, 2008, held at Rizal Ballroom, Shangri-la Makati. The event started with a registration followed by 6Cyclemind’s performance. Pampagising daw hehe. The morning session was basically a short discussion on the new releases. A more detailed discussion followed in the afternoon. We attended the following:
  • Microsoft Silverlight By: Tim Vergel de Dios, Academic Developer Evangelist
  • What’s New in SQL Server 2008? By: Nicholas Dristas, Principal Program Manager SQL
  • Server What’s New in Visual Studio 2008? By: Warren Yu, MVP for Visual Tools

The event concluded with a Raffle. Unfortunately, no one from our team won wahuhu.

Here are some links for the event:

After the event, syempre picture taking sa labas hehe. Pictures to follow.
Non-tech note: Ang Filipino term pala ng beans ay bitsuelas haha. Nagduda pa ako nung una kasi ang nasa menu ng hotel, guinisang bitsuelas pero nung sinerver, sweet peas naman. Pagkatapos ng maraming beses na pagtatanong, ang bitsuelas nga ay beans at ang sweet peas ay chicharo. Misleading lang yung menu.

Objective vs. Subjective statements

What’s the difference between the two?

Subjective is reported that you cannot observe. I tell you that I have pain that is 8 on a 1-10 scale. Can you observe my pain? No, you can observe my response to the pain, but not my pain.

Your subjective statement here would be: Patient reports pain in lower left quadrant of 8 out of 10.

Objective is something that you can see/observe. While you cannot see my pain, you can observe my responses: moaning, crying, grimacing, contorting, etc…

Your objective statement here is patient reports pain in lower left quadrant of 8 out of 10. Patient is tearful during and moaning during repositioning. Additionally, patient guards this area upon examination and grimaces.

Anyway, I just wish I did some practice with those statements before attacking the evaluations for my subordinates. It might have helped a bit. I did not know until now how challenging it is to construct statements that are objective (as advised by HR) not subjective.
On other things, the tool that I’m using is taking oh so very, very, very long to load and I am getting errors for the past 30 minutes. Want proof? I’m doing this while waiting for the form to load! I am already pressured since the director will be checking these tomorrow, and that he might be passing by our area anytime today. Hayz. I have 6 PMPs to do (wherein 1 profile is missing as it’s not yet fixed by HR). Unfortunately, I cannot find the first PMP I encoded so I have to redo it again. The system is acting up. It sucks. On top of that, I’m not yet done with my own PMP. Ngrsh!


We’re booked for Bohol from March 14-17, 2008. Yiffeee!

Next thing to do: itinerary!
