We Teach you… Excel!

We Teach you... Excel!

This first blog entry title comes from the brochure tagline of Philippine Airlines Learning Center. Well, its quite long time since my last post and this is the first for 2006. And for the start of this year, I've just completed my one week of duty in my industrial setting training, which started last Monday. Well, the title and tagline from brochure really has an association to my entry today. My on-the-job training in industrial setting was in Philippine Airlines, particularly in their Learning Center which is their school for training and development.

I didn't choose to be in the HR (human resources) department as the office there is dull, the place is gloomy and the commute for transportation is disadvantage. So the PAL Learning Center located at Padre Faura St. Ermita, Manila is an advantage to me... since the transpo for commuters like me is easy as the buses were just passing on the Taft Avenue. The PAL Learning Center at Faura is really suitable for my training, located at the heart city of Manila; it is near to other familiar and visiting district of the metropolis.

PAL Learning Center is the home of their training and development department. It is where their employees are trained before they go to their actual workplace. It is also where the pilots and stewardesses are being trained.

I started in Sales Admin Dept... I don't know why the HR assigned me there since am a psychology major. But at least I enjoy my work there together with my co-trainees - Ron and Vilma... who we fondly called "Ate Vi". But on Monday I'll be assigned on 3rd Floor in Inflight Services Training Department, so that I can be with Nagi, my classmate. We worked for my transfer there. And I really want to transfer there because it’s more related to my course especially training - we're also studying it.

Now that my educational and clinical setting has ended, it's now the time for the industrial setting... well, I hope that what the tagline in PAL's brochure says "We teach you... Excel!" will happen to me. May my training experience in Philippine Airlines will serve as a training ground for me to discover new learning and experiences that would help me become a better person.

New Year Diary: 2005 Year-ender Blog entry

New Year Diary: 2005 Year-ender Blog entry

It's almost few hours towards new year - 2006. It's almost 12 hours before new year to be exact... and me here writing my last blog entry for 2005. I don't have a Christmas entry as I am really busy aside from the holidays, is finishing my thesis.

Looking back, I'm glad that some of my important new year's resolutions last year have been materialized. Now, I hope that those good that I've started will continue towards next year for me to be a better person. This year one of my important resolution of not holding any firecrackers anymore continues. I've starter this last year because I realized the importance of my hands, whether it's just a "lusis" I really don't hold any in celebrating new year. Back then I realized the importance of my hands... and as a writer I really love my hands... they are my instrument to my skills in writing. I would rather celebrate the new year with a countdown and toast a wine at the strike of 12. Say what you want or call me corny or whatever but for me its better to prevent twice than regret double the times in the end.

I want to give insight regarding new year's resolution... new year's resolution should not only be made every end of the year. Instead, it must be done everyday and keep track of it everyday so you can monitor it if you're really improving especially if it is about taking away the "bad sides" of your personality. Will you wait for the end of the year to change? No... Resolutions can be done everyday as every new day is a new chance to change your self, your way of life... or whatever. Don't wait for that long, start changing today. It would be great to make it in the list your new year’s resolutions. I hope these enlighten everyone about new year's resolutions.

Thank you for those visited my blog and for reading my share of story here. May the new year will be great as 2005 and bring us more prosperity and blessings. Happy New Year everyone!!! Cheers!
