Valentine's Gift

The husband have been enjoying the use of his new iPhone. In fact, he was even asking me to check for him a bluetooth set like those of Plantronics Headsets. He said that could pass as a belated Valentine's gift for him. I know I can order for him online from HeadSetHome, which is a distributor of all kinds of headsets for mobile, bluetooth, residential, commercial and even aviation. Now as a return gift for the flowers he gave me last valetine's day, I might get him the
Plantronics Voyager. I just hope there would be no glitches with my order.

I am an Event Planner...

This was tagged to me in Facebook. I so love it! It is so me when working. It talks about the gazillion things I think about when we have events.  In other words, STRESS!  but I love my job to bits!!! If you still don't know what I do, read on...And yes, I am an Event Planner... ;)

I am an Event Manager...

I have unlimited resources at my disposal.

I always keep at least 10 meeting rooms under my desk.

I can make any of my rooms larger or smaller, depending on your program needs.

I will naturally remove any supporting pillars from your meeting space and will install windows in every room as needed.

Unfortunately the 'ocean view' is not scheduled to arrive until Day Two of the program for which I sincerely apologise;

however, I will move the convention centre two feet to the left to accommodate your request by the
end of Day One, although I realize the event is only next week.

I can only throw myself on your mercy and grovel at your feet; I completely agree that it is inconceivable that we should have any other groups booked into the hotel during our event.

And the additional breakout rooms you asked for this morning for tomorrow's conference will be added to the hotel by the end of today.

Naturally it will be no problem to turn the plenary session for 200 (classroom style) into a hollow square for 300 with rear screen projection, simultaneous Japanese translation and satellite hook-up during the 15-minute coffee break.

Unfortunately, due to space constraints, and the fact that the final program bears no resemblance whatsoever to the initial program that we contracted the space under, I'll have to suspend the lunch buffet from the ceiling above the plenary session, then suck the gravity out of the ballroom - not a

I've located the boxes that the sponsors sent last month under their mother's maiden name to the other hotel down the street, and again I apologize for not having found them sooner.

In answer to all your questions, it is of course, understood that I am telepathically aware of all your speakers needs and I'll set up an overhead, LCD panel, dual slide projectors, two screens, laser pointer, podium microphones, two table top microphones, podium knock-out switch, timer and
blue M&Ms in each room, which I've negotiated at no extra charge, just in case they are needed.

Additionally it goes without saying that an A/V technician, engineer, baby-sitter and I will be underneath your head table for the duration of your event, in case you need anything else.

It has been great working with you on this event and every other just like it and I can't wait for the next one!!

Yes, biking within our own premise is my dear Margaux's favorite past-time the past few days. I am amazed as to how she has managed to learn on her own. No one actually taught her! I'm really suprised! She used to have those two small wheels as balancer. One Sunday afternoon, she asked her dad to removed it already and said she already knows how to ride the bike without those. Indeed, she can...

(Talo pa ako!) I don't know how to ride a bike, except if it is with sidecar! lol! :p

Oh I failed to blog about this. The kids were ecstatic when they received this gift from my friend AA. Bianca most especially love to play with the rabbits. She would bring them out in our garden every morning and afternoon. Margaux would feed them morning, lunch and dinner. They were very happy with these pets.

Unfortunately, they didn't last...sad :-(

We didn't actually know the reason why they died. It just happened! One morning when we woke up, they were both very gloomy. The day didn't end for them. The kids were sad.

I wonder how to take proper care of these creatures because the kids want us to get new rabbits again but I'm already hesitant.

I'm a fan...

already of this guy! He has been gracing our events for a couple of times already and I just love his voice! He's not a snob at all and would always be willing to take a pose with us during events.

I got the chance to also witness a performance of Gary Valenciano for two consecutive events last month of January. I must say, he is really Mr. Pure Energy. But poor me, didn't get a chance to have a picture with him :-(
