What keeps me busy…? My New Career!

Published October 21, 2008 by starvillanueva

“Windows of opportunities open & close all the time. That’s why it’s important to seize these moments because they’re the keys to altering your present and creating a more positive future.”

       * 1st & 2nd Edition of Q’ways Magazine

Pardon me for not updating my blogsite lately this is my excuse!  When I was still new my flying hrs each month were just around 65-80hrs. Lately, I’ve been getting 100 something, this month (October) I have 153 hours flying time! 

Another thing that keeps me busy besides from flying & being a homebody was the recently launched Qatar Airways Magazine for the Cabin Crew. I was a part of the magazine committee long before the title has been given. We’re around 12-13 people busy brain-storming new ideas for the next layout, articles & new features from cover to cover. We are given Office duty indicated in our roster from 7-3 pm and  it’s being consumed productively.

 

How did I became a part of the committee? All forms of media has always been close to my heart. Communication Arts is my major, have advertising background because of my mom & sister’s travel agency & general merchandise, exposed to marketing industries because my family is entrepreneur and I got my certificate for OJT (On-the-Job-Training) as Public Relations Trainee in the U.S and became one of the campaign speaker during candidacy of Congresswoman Annie Susano in Quezon City dist II, list goes on.

 
I was hired as Flight Attendant 2 months after my graduation, so I never had the chance to really apply my chosen field. Q’ways – is such a good opportunity for me to practice what I’ve learned. I’m glad out of many who volunteered I’ve been chosen to be part of the team.

I still enjoy flying but being a part of the print media makes me more fulfilled. I’m enjoying the  brain storming, comments, email updates, deadlines, follow ups, re-writes, disapprovals, interviews, photo shoots, editing, pictorial and the pressures because it keeps me busy & occupied.  I believed our potentials as a human are limitless therefore we should not just settled for anything we already have but still continue to aim for greater developments for our own satisfaction & for the future!

When Least Expected

Digital Perm @ Tony & Jackey

Published August 2, 2008 by starvillanueva
Tony & Jackey salon uses high quality Korean products and equipment – this is an all-Korean salon, as all their hair care products, hair color, and stylists are all Korean. They have Filipino assistants to help them shampoo and blowdry hair, but other than that, you will truly be beautified the Korean way.

They said the traditional perm in other salons will lasts for about three months, while digital perm will last for about six. My hair is naturally wavy and since there won’t be such a drastic difference in my hairstyle, I decided to give it a go. The whole process took 4 & half hours! I had a shampoo first then Sunny trimmed my hair for added layers so that the curls will fall more nicely. A pre-perming solution was applied to my hair, then a second solution was applied after 30-40 minutes.

To keep my curls shiny, I use Pantene all day curl mousse. I’m loyal to Pantene Hair Products. The product gives your hair definition & manageability. (I bought it for only $8) Use it in wet or damp hair. It’s not heavy,oily or sticky on the hair as if you didn’t put anything at all. I had my hair permed last May 2008 and until now august I still keep getting compliments about my new hair.

The Psychology of Being Organized

Published July 21, 2008 by starvillanueva

I always wanted my stuff to be organized, for me there is always a room for improvement. I rearrange & clean almost everyday because my accommodation is located in front-corner side of the building it’s so dusty! Being organized is totally a part of me wherever I go. As a sneak peak to my soon to launch blog site here’s an article on being organized.

Individuals who are organized in their personal lives most generally constitute efficient and organized in their work environments, succeed in their personal endeavors . Once an organizational state of mind is established, your status of efficiency in all areas of your life will benefit. A well kept room tend to indicate a well-ordered existence in every area of your life, whether it is financial, emotional or physical.

Organization is having a system for everything. By utilizing these systems, or routines, you manage to run a household, you manage to be where you are supposed to be when you are supposed to be there, you manage to do everything that needs to be done and you manage to find the time to do the things you enjoy. The only way you can manage to do it all these days is if you are organized. And that means having a system.

Self-discipline is the only required equipment you will need to make any necessary change in your life. There is always room for improvement and there is always a simpler, better, and more efficient way of getting things done if you look hard enough to find it.
