2016 Week 14 Recap: Ad hoc project = Hectic
March 28 – April 2, 2016
And just like that, we’re done with the 1st quarter of 2016. Whew!
The ad hoc project where we need to fix systems ASAP made the team busy last week. The kind of busy that you need to extend hours most of the days to get things done. What a relief when Friday rolled in hahaha.
Anyway, most of the target deliverable for last week were completed. The ones left were not really critical but still needs to be checked nonetheless. We are moving on to the next step this week and next week, and that’s the end user’s testing. Crossing my fingers that there will be no issues. Otherwise, it means we did not test well hehe.
Oh, and finally, the vendor for another project showed up. Pero hay naku pa rin!
So it’s really bye Sky Cable for me since last week. My digibox was pulled out last Wednesday. The coming bill should be my last.
We availed of a promo at Lee Hak Korean Restaurant at Pioneer Center, Kapitolyo, Pasig. Php 322 for a weekend lunch buffet, unlimitted iced tea included. To me, the food was ok for the price (but I’m not choosy in general). According to my friend who is more versed in anything Korean, their food was somewhat “Filipinized”. While the selection may be few for some, it was enough for me as it’s not overwhelming which ones to choose. They don’t have much dessert options though. I guess there were just 2 fruits. But for that price, I think we got our money’s worth.
We dropped by EDSA Shangri-la because my friend was interested to check out the wedding expo to get some ideas for her brother who sometimes does styling in weddings. While the prices were overwhelming, we enjoyed all the displays. We were especially amazed by the Ecuadorian roses displayed by one supplier. They had big, beautiful roses!
We also passed by a Starbucks event at the Shang mall so we spent a few minutes there. There were lectures about their different types of coffee and demo on their new coffee presses. We were treated to free coffee in different variety. It was good to know that the Kape Vinta coffee beans is from the Philippines.
Random thoughts while we were in that event.
Me: I want to get rich through agriculture. Why can some people do it and we can’t?
Friend: You need to have hectares of land so that you can produce enough to supply the big chains.
But let’s see about this dream. There has to be a way.
We went to Megamall less than an hour before closing time to check out the treadmills.
Sunday was spent doing some domestic chores and mass.
I hope you all had a great week. Cheers to another great week ahead.
