Quick Post; The heat is on

Posted by Alei at 3/15/2009 3 comments
Summer is here, the hottest and yet the most enjoyable season any city dweller can tell. It’s the best time to have a holiday vacation at the beach, flaunt your lovely swimsuits and get that perfect tone and tan of your body. It’s the time to sit back and relax by a palm-fringed beach while eating the most wanted refreshment, our native halo-halo.

I am so much excited this summer. I am looking forward for adventures trips with my family and friends. Instead of ranting and being grumpy with the heat, why not enjoy the outdoors? Summer is all about fun under the sun. Take a break, enjoy summer!

Busy as a bee

Posted by Alei at 3/10/2009 1 comments

I have been busy during the last few weeks. Evidently, I failed to update my blog. Throughout my absence, I completed my passport requirements, applied for it, went out to DFA for my personal appearance, inquired at IDP for IELTS examination and finally, I submitted my IELTS application.

What is IELTS?

IELTS is the International English Language Testing System. It measures ability to communicate in English across all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – for people who intend to study or work where English is the language of communication.

I and Adrian planned of studying in Australia. Although I have finished a degree already, I would like to study again and work at the same time. I haven’t applied for a job since I graduated. I had a small business that gave my bumming around a justice. Even so, I still wanted to give my career a clearer direction and if given the chance, this is going to be the second one.

We are scheduled for the said exam on March 21. That will be barely two weeks from now. Just the thought of it makes me uneasy. I want to pass, definitely. We answered several IELTS reviewers to give us a glimpse of what to expect during the test. We also decided to attend an IELTS workshop scheduled on March 19. The application itself is pricey so we will be bracing ourselves for that very day. Please include us in your prayers.

I will not be in attendance again online to make way for some preparations. Thank you those persistent droppers who find time to visit my blog . Sorry guys if I neglect to drop back. Still, I will make an effort for my dropping chores. Til next time!
