My Love Affair with Coffee

Published June 22, 2010 by starvillanueva

Sharing one of my many published articles in Qatar Airways Q’ways magazine but this is the shorter version because I intentionally removed the research part such as benefits & side-effects of coffee to avoid some references issues. After being absent for 2 consecutive issues due to my hectic flying schedule, Star Bliss Nails Spa marketing, client meetings, (lists goes on) now I’m back again to writing. Sometimes, I wish we have more than 24 hours each day to accomodate all my multi-tasking habit! But as mentioned to my previous post, I like it when I’m tired, let me now share my love affair with coffee…

If there was one thing my friends & family would be jealous about, it would most likely be coffee. I drink it everyday, I think about it all the time and to say the least, my life has somehow revolved around it. The influence that coffee has brought into so many aspects of my life is astounding. One would probably find it hard to believe that coffee has influenced my work, lifestyle and health, among so many other things.

To start the flight right, I would drink coffee, then I’ll drink again during the course of the flight until the end to boost my energy. The dosage of which is enough for me to go malling or sight-seeing. Being in the airline industry for quite sometime, coffee running through my bloodstream is an understatement. The kind of lifestyle I have intensely requires tons and tons of coffee. It has become a way of life, a part of my system. I should have included coffee in my “All Time Skin & Beauty Secret Post”.

 Nothing is quite as sweet as that first sip. Nothing is quite as warm as that mug against my hands. Though many, many more cups will follow this one each day, that first sip, that very first cup, is special. And so are the other dozen I’ll have for the day. I honestly don’t know how many cups of coffee I slug down each day. I don’t count — I drink. Hence, I’m so hopped up on caffeine that my body twitches with a speed of an Oryx!

This is my love affair with coffee and I intend to make it last. Coffee & Me, Me & Coffee. We make sweet music together and it is this perfect harmony that makes me fall for it madly and deeply each time.

A Peek Into The Intriguing World of Traveling & Flying

Published May 28, 2010 by starvillanueva
“Ang buhay parang isang eksena sa airport. May mga naghahanap. Na nabik sa muling pagkikita. Sa daming nakapaligid sayo. Hindi mo alam kung sino sa kanila ang dapat mong pagkatiwalaan.Pero may mga masarap kasama. At meron ding mga dapat iwasan. May mga naghihintay. Ang iba nagmamadali at kailangan umalis. At minsan nga nasa harapan mo na ang hinahanap mo hindi mo lang alam. Maraming magagandang experience sa aking paglipad pero sa paglapag niyo sa lupa Masaya na akong Makita ang isang pamilyar na ngiti. Saan man ako makarating kaligayahan kong makapiling ang mga mahal ko..eto ang langit para sa akin..” 
 

 
I’ve been watching this trailer over and over again! I’m so touched by the way it has been presented. I’m quite affected by the words too… Aside from offering an exclusive peek into the intriguing world of traveling and flying,I’ve read that the program will also feature many of Philippines famous tourist destinations and it unravels the glamorous, colorful, and fascinating world of the airline industry.

Travel Companion Gadgets

Published August 11, 2009 by starvillanueva

Technology has made life easier and comfortable. Not so long ago, we had to check the hotel front desk for faxes or use Internet in business centers. Those days are over because today’s electronic gadgets definitely make business travel more efficient. There are different models of mobile phones available with lots of features for the people to make use of it. Gadgets are indispensable part of traveling whether you are traveling for business, pleasure or both. Some of them are necessary to help you get out of trouble and some are for entertainment. Here’s a list of my travel gadgets which you musn’t miss when you’re heading to a layover:

Iphones serve as a best travel companion for me primarily because of built in WIFI but it wasn’t just useful in a mobile context,  Back in the hotel I received an e-mail which required me to write a reasonably lengthy letter in this case laptop are better. Also have little iPod Nano and I find it better to bring  on the gym rather than iPhone. . Another best travel companion would be a mini laptop or netbook because they are convenient and lightweight to bring and they are very useful for frequent fliers of the world. With the help of laptops and the Internet facilities life has become so easy.

Whenever I travel, I try to pack as lightly as possible so that I will have more free space for my shopped items. Despite this, there’s key items that cannot be left behind like power adapters, to get all of my items charged and because different countries have different voltage ratings. Another gadgets that is included in my list are another mobile phone from where my local sim (From Philippines) are inserted. Next is Tungsten T5 Palm (My handheld financial organizer) since 4th year High school! I’m used to its features and applications that’s why I can’t let go of it . 

Levi’s Greenbelt Sale

I received an invitation from Levi 19s Greenbelt last week that they will have 3 hours private SALE this day, MAY16 19 09 exclusively for members. I 19ve tried so hard to swap my Shanghai China flight but unfortunately, no one accepted it or the flight is not legal to swap. It took 10,000 pesos just to be a member of Levi 19s Loop club and here I am in Doha, just came back from Shanghai and I cannot use the privileges! Grrrr!
