I'm not in the mood to write as yet. But due to a blogger friend's nudge, I thought of just sharing this funny email I found in my inbox. Hope you like it!
to a woman and ordered a glass of champagne..
'What a coincidence' the farmer says. 'This is a special day for me.... I am celebrating'
'This is a special day for me too, I am also
celebrating!' says the woman.
'What a coincidence!' says the farmer! As they clinked glasses the man asked, 'What are you celebrating?'
'My husband and I have been trying to have a child and today my gynecologist told me that I am pregnant!'
'What a coincidence,' says the man. 'I'm a chicken farmer and for years all of my hens were infertile, but today they are all laying fertilized eggs.'
'That's great!' says the woman. 'How did your
chickens become fertile?'
'I used a different cock,' he replied.
The woman smiled and said, 'What a coincidence.'
Smile! Enjoy the beautiful day!

The owner of the beach resort, Mrs. Paz Abella warmly welcomed us as we arrived at the resort’s gate. While ushering us inside, she was humbly apologizing for the small area that they have. Yes, the place maybe small compared to the other resorts in the vicinity but it is obviously well taken cared of. The surrounding is clean, with beautiful blossoming plants in every nook and crannies. They have different cottages to suit your needs. Their native roomsi with aircon can each accommodate four. We were six so we got two rooms. And without us asking, we were given further discounts by Mrs Abella. Her husband, the former Branch Manager of Land Bank Balanga (where the resort’s name came from) is equally accommodating. Always on the lookout for anything that we would possibly need, from table to chairs to offering the transfer of heavy griller for our convenience. Geez, where can you find such friendly customer treatment with personal touch? We just found it here! Or could it be because Mr and Mrs Abella discovered they have mutual friends with my sis? Maybe so, but apart from that, I believe they are truly friendly and hands on on their customer relation.

The cooking range in my kitchen has been servicing my family for more than 25 straight years. It has two gas burners, one electric burner and a gas oven with rotisseri. I stopped using the oven after seeing a hole on one of the gas tubes. I don’t want to take the risk of starting a big fire so I set aside my baking hobby. As for the stoves, all three are still usable although they aren’t as efficient lately. The flames aren't as fiery and the automatic ignitions don’t work anymore. Nonetheless, every single stove is still functional but not until one refuses to shut off completely. For the very first time, I called the service center and in no time, two service technicians arrived. They are very skilled that the stoves were restored to its brand new condition in a very short time. While the oven, I was told can still be restored too, if I want. They don’t have the replacement parts with them at the time so they came back a couple of days later and then... voila! My dilapidated cooking range is working fresh anew for an unbelievable amount of only P2,500.! Imagine that? Who would think that a 25 year old cooking range would still be given a second chance of life. Lol! Oh, ain’t she like me? Blessed with second life? Haha.. I love you, my La Germania!
