Renewal of Business Permit

Leave a comment

If you have your own business, then January is kind of a stressful month. Why? Because its the time to deal with different departments of the City Hall.

Glad Marikina government made renewal of permits relatively easy. The city hall became a one-stop center with the different departments in respective kiosks.

Renewal of Business Permit @ Marikina

1) Get application form at the BPLO

2) Submit all requirements — mostly previous permits, new CTC, Barangay clearance, etc. (This is where you go to each department — Health, Fire, Environment…)

3) Have your papers assessed at the BPLO office at your designated barangay window

4) Choose your payment scheme and pay at the Cashier

5) Submit all papers at BPLO

6) Wait for delivery to establishment

🙂 🙂 🙂

Deadline of Renewal is Jan 20 (this year, it was extended until the 31st)

I chickened out.

Only one of us is allowed to be the speaker.

Oh. Just me? No way.

So yeah, waking up really early for my “TV appearance” didn’t really push through 😉

2011 New Years Resolution

1 Comment

1. Healthy hair — I vow to make my hair healthier this year (and the succeeding…) I used to have great locks, I used to get compliments with my hair. Until I had it relaxed, rebonded, colored… then I failed to regularly treat it… in the end, its all dry and brittle 😦

2. “Fix” self — I’m the kind of girl who can go out of the house straight from the shower. No makeup, no hairdo, no anything. I don’t even fan dry my hair. This year, I’d like to put a little make up when I go out, dress up a little every time I step out of the house… In short, make extra effort for myself.

3. Eat more fish and vegetable — I’d really love to try cutting down on meat…

4. Tummy trim — Hai. May it be the gym, or at home. I have to start naaa!

5. Save more — Spend less, save more 🙂

Hello, 2011!

Best of 2010

Year 2010 is full of blessings.

Sachi’s 1st Birthday Party – We’re proud of this birthday celebration because its all from hard earned money. Thanks to our then business, Sachi Prints, labor of office work and gifts from family, we were able to come up with a beautiful party for our daughter.

Posh Nails Grand Opening – This new business venture is a big blessing. From its conception to construction to operation, it was all us (hubby and I). We were so blessed to have the wisdom and the courage to fulfill our duties. Imagine, we literally participated in the construction. And I mean not only with the paperworks, but we were literally at the site everyday, manning the workers, buying and transporting the supplies, bringing in food, etc. It was a lot of stress because everything is new to us — no background no nothing. Its our first take on a major business venture that involves a big construction — (*strict kc ng SM, may mga blueprint and contractor requirements, materials and bawat galaw kailangan approved. Daig pa namin nagpagawa ng bahay sa stress, promise!)

For us to hold the grand opening of Posh is an achievement in itself.

US Trip – Then we had our much awaited US vacation. A month  for me and 2 for hubby. Its a very special trip. Very blessed to have very accommodating and loving in-laws.

Sachi Prints Anniversary – Our first ever take on a business is our very own Heat Press T-shirt Printing Business. Its a wonderful blessing because this business was made from scratch — and we were able to set it up in a mall!! =)

Sachi about to turn Two – Having a daughter as active and as healthy as Sachi is a great blessing for any parent.

Thank you Lord for the wonderful blessings the past year. These are the milestones, everyday of 2010 is a blessing. Thank you.

I hope you had the best 2010 too!

2011, Lets roll!!

December Festivities

Leave a comment

December is the happiest month for everyone — The atmosphere, the environment, the people, the events, the activities. It is such a fun-filled month that it comes by so quickly. Its may favorite month because everything and everyone’s happy. The sparkling lights on the street, the decors in the mall, in villages, in the house… Everything comes to life.

What makes December so special?

1) Numerous bazaars — left and right. I used to like going to bazaars. You’ll see unique and chic finds, plus the fact that you can haggle the price makes the shopping experience more exciting (and economical). Now, i don’t go to bazaars as often anymore, in fact I went to just one bazaar this year. I’m now more interested in joining the seller’s bandwagon 🙂

2) Christmas Dinners and Parties

3) Weddings & Birthdays – This month is popular for weddings. Well, who wouldn’t want to tie the knot on a happy month?

4) Christmas decors — I’ve said this many times, I love Christmas decors… on malls, on the street, in and out of the house, little details… it makes things alive. My favorite is the Glorietta window at Ayala Ave. So pretty! Didn’t get to take a picture of it though.

Here’s our store with Christmas decors, photo from Pinay Ads

5) Gifts – looking for the perfect gift/token, and receiving the perfect presents 🙂

6) December is good for business –  That’s why its every entrepreneur’s wish na “sana laging pasko”

7) Christmas Day!

How was your Happy Month?
