Cyber Life

Published June 1, 2012 by starvillanueva

People will always talk about you, so might as well give them a reason…”

 

Like what I’ve said before, I’m a certified homebody, If I don’t have work or photoshoot, I’m basically just at home facing my laptop! Here’s why even if I’m busy with my flights, magazine team meet ups, writing articles, modelling & my Star Bliss Salon & Spa I still managed to have a cyber life. (But I don’t chat-never. So beware of those posers using my pictures to find a chatmate or whatever they called it.)

My Multiply is flooded with pictures I know. Hehe! So I wanted to make a distinction between my photos and my blogs. My Multiply will still be my official Photo website (though it’s not updated anymore) while Livejournal or wordpress will be for my blog entries such as reviews, travel infos, property, investments interesting articles I gathered from the net, other Flight Attendant blogs, health/beauty tips, inspirations and anything under the sun!

  

You may also follow me through Twitter, I find it easy to update, with just a simple question what are you doing? Your friends and family will be updated. Live Feed! BTW, My Instagram name is #StarVillanueva…

My Suggestion to those who want to start blogging or thinking of having one. I’ve found that writing a blog about your travels is good motivator to go out and find new things, which in turn makes you more of a traveler. Write up a short post on your trip or about anything. Sometimes, probably no one will read it, but that’s not the point, it’s primarily for you, the audience is secondary.

To my beloved readers, I have more than a million things to share to the world through words and pictures, but very busy to update my blog lately… Just continue to take time to listen to me through my photoblog “Welcome to My World, Fly with Me”… Thank you

Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.”
 

 

My daily journal started 11 years ago! I’ve always wanted to remember wonderful blessings in my life then I formally started this blog a year ago to share it to you through technology along with my hopes, dreams, accomplishments, joys, travels and who I am.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the people for all the inspiring messages/comments. I may not be able to reply on it one by one reading it made me happy. Knowing that I somehow became an inspiration to someone else’s life is remarkable.

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

Published May 16, 2009 by starvillanueva

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!

You Are the Wheel Pose
You are energetic and quick to act. You are the first to jump to your feet.
You’re the type of person who’s easily stimulated – and you like to stay that way.

You are optimistic and happy. Your hyperactivity allows you to dabble in many things.
You see the world more fully than most people. You understand connections well.

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.

           * 1 of my Published Articles

 

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

Coming Soon!

Published July 16, 2008 by starvillanueva


 

I rarely write blog entries because I’m more of a reader, I browse a lot, read a lot! From endless beauty tips, fitness, healthy food, exercise, skin care to cosmetics! If I don’t have flight my entire day will just be spent in front of my laptop! I have lots of beauty tips to share, skin care to recommend and a lot more!

Lately, there are lots of people sending me messages in friendster,multiply & ym  (Honestly! online & offline messages not just about vanity but anything under the sun wholesome questions such as how to become a cabin crew, about faith, about life and of course beauty stuff which I do enjoy answering) It makes me glad when they appreciate my response & when they say I inspired them… I appreciate being asked, it gives me a feeling that I was able to help someone in my own simple ways…  They usually call me Ate, Ms. Star, Sis all the time… It’s pretty amazing how powerful the internet is… We can gain new friends, keep in touch with family, relatives & friends…

With these circumstances, I realized that I should be blogging more often to share my insights , reviews and recommendations…  I definitely won’t review a product I haven’t tried yet… (what’s the purpose of reviewing anyway!)  I’m currently working on a new blog site… A better more informative website with categories that will suit your interest. My roster is quite hectic nowadays with only few day off – So I will launch it by the end of the month! I consider this multiply a success because it reaches 2,000+ viewers every month. I hope you will all continue to support my new blog site when I launch it soon… Thank you…
