Subject: Reconnecting across time and differences

Dear Portales and Yabes relatives,

I hope this message finds each of you well, wherever you may be in the world. It has been far too long since we last spoke, and my heart feels heavy with the weight of all the moments we've missed together.

As the years have passed, life has taken us on separate journeys, and in the busyness of it all, we have grown distant from one another. But today, I am reaching out with an earnest desire to bridge that gap, to rekindle the bonds that tie us together as relatives.

Though we may have differing political views and beliefs, and our paths may diverge in countless ways, I believe that the love and kinship we share transcend these differences. Our relatives are a tapestry woven from the threads of our shared history, laughter, and tears. It is a bond that cannot be broken by time or distance, by disagreement or discord.

Life is too short to let our differences keep us apart. Let us set aside any grievances or misunderstandings that may have arisen between us and embrace the opportunity to reconnect. Let us celebrate the gift of relatives and cherish the moments we have together, for they are precious and fleeting.

I long to hear your voices, to see your faces, and to share in the joys and sorrows of life once more. Please know that my door is always open, and my heart always ready to welcome you back into my life.

May we find the courage to let go of the past and embrace the beauty of the present, united in love and solidarity as relatives.

With all my love,

Just trying to get connected with old bosses

Last month, I did search for old bosses and colleagues through social media. I messaged them through Facebook. It's really good to know how a former employee like me reaching out to them.

Before I proceed, let me tell you something about this:

  • Verify the contract information first;
  • Make sure to keep your tone professional and friendly during the interaction;
  • Remind them of your past work history. Doing so, will rekindle new opportunities'
  • I am sure you did some accomplishments, mention it anyway since you work together;
  • Make it personal;
  • If you can, setup a meeting.
I did reach out to Bernard Piedad and Nestor Antonio via Facebook. There were my bosses during my first job at STI Ilagan from 2003 until 2008.

Trying to add friend request to Piedad on Facebook, a couple for christ member, but the latter declined. For some reason, I do not know. There may be something but I don't want to speculate.

I added Antonio as well, luckily he accepted it. Last time I heard about Antonio, he was listening to the program Ang Dating Daan in 2005.

I did reach out as well to Epigemio Roxas but no response at all. Good thing he accepted my friend request. But I am happy that Elmer Cadiz is a good one.

Also, I reached out to Dolly Aguilar on Facebook but still got no reply as of this writing. Dolly was my teacher in Database Management subject during my college days. She is now a school principal.

Team outing with new colleagues

It has been over two months since I resigned from my job as QA in a company located in Pasig. People change jobs as they see fit to move to another company for some reason: greener pasture and hopefully a better place to work for.

So I joined a another BPO company located in Taguig City. It is for a pioneering account that provide support to a streaming service which was launched in the United States. I am hopefull that it will launch in the Philippines by June 2020 or earlier.

The date February 17th came and we have our team outing for the first time in Calatagan, Batangas. Around 4-5 travel time from Taguig City. This should solidify the team members by knowing each other, group games, swimming, team lunch, etc. Everyone of us is happy of course. A special mention to Ace, our teammate who was not able to attend due to some reason.

Moving forward to another team outing again. The last time I visit the sea was around April 2016 when I was working for a company under market research industry. That was in Nasugbu, Batangas.

Finding old friends

As I am constantly searching for old friends in elementary and high school, I was surprised to see them via facebook. I am getting the chance to look back my yesteryears of being a child then.

It's a good thing to go remember things that we were together. Before we parted our ways, we spent a lot of time playing games in the ground. No computer games available yet at that time.

We have got the chance to play and have some sweat on our own. On which nowadays, the disadvantage of today's computer games. Hmmm... I just don't know what I am saying in this post.
