It has been a year or more since my last post.
I just don't have the time to be doing it in the past. But now, something interesting came up.
I am again in a dilemma. The business partnership that I have with two others is now starting to crumble. I must admit, it was partly my fault for not being brave enough to accept or inform them that the position that I am now enjoying is to much for me to handle.
Though one good thing did turn out for this venture. And it is the fact that I learned a lot about managing a business, though mostly are mistakes and failures.
I also got to learn how to do Askterisk PBX. Set it up for this business, customized it a little, and deployed it into production.
It was surely a ride that I will never forget, and if the decision is to discontinue this relationship, I will still hold my head high for I know that I will not go away from this business venture without learning anything.
Will post additional information on what happens with this venture, if I am to continue my journey with this company, or if I will set up my own home-based business.

Looks like rough weather is about to come our way.
The business right now is not working out the way that we expected. The investors have pulled out, and that we are currently about to face financial turmoil. Though I still believe that we will be able to salvage the business and make it successful. However, it will take a lot of work and sacrifice. I just hope that it works out in the end.
I am still willing to continue and support the business to the best of my ability. Until such time that I can't handle it anymore.

It's something strange that the rainy days came at around the end of July. Normally it starts pouring late May or early June.
Anyway, its a welcome sight for me that its raining, since I get to enjoy my sleep during the afternoon since its cooler. As many other person who are working the graveyard shift, its easier and somewhat more relaxing to sleep in the afternoon while its raining.
The sad part, many of our streets easily gets flooded even with a light rainfall. That is to say, a lot of people are suffering due to these rains in the metro area, especially those living near the river banks or in creeks.
Still, as this is just a rant!!! I still believe that rainy days are a welcome weather change for a few select of people, with me included in the list.

I took my wife earlier this morning to the hospital because she is experiencing sever stomach pains along with vomiting, LBM and dizziness. Never did get a proper diagnosis since she was not able to provide a stool sample once we got to the emergency room.
Though she was discharged after 3 hours, the doctor said that the reason for her dizziness was because she has low blood pressure and she's dehydrated from her LBM and continuous vomiting.
With that said, I was relieved. Though the memory when my grandfather died was rekindled when there was a DOA that was brought to the ER. As they tried to revive him, the sole family member and companion could not help but cry. Suddenly I felt that my own tears was falling.
Since my grandfather died, I have a soft spot for this kind of situations. And whenever I see one, I could not stop myself from crying. I thought to myself how life is fragile and fleeting. That everyday that we spent, we should be thankful that we woke up, breathing and still able to feel the warmth of the people close to us.

Well then, it didn't turn out to be what I hoped that it will be. That is, with the new company that we are trying to build with my former boss. The business model that we hoped would bring about the revenue did not work out, and we need to revisit the drawing board.
So now, we are all in floating status and I am still hoping that it will work out after a week. Keeping my fingers crossed and I am still optimistic about everything, I know that we will be able to make this work, and with the new business model that we have proposed we will make it big!
It might be because of the heavy rains, undisciplined drivers or other factors. However, the fact still is that accidents will always happen. But for today, its quite different, with 2 accidents happening within a span of an hour. Ironically, it happened during the time that a tropical storm is approaching the country with heavy rains.
The first accident happened on the southbound lane of Skyway, wherein a public utility bus fell to the service road from the Skyway above. 3 people died including the driver, the only thing fortunate is that the bus did not hit any vehicle below when it fell. The accident took place between around 11 in the morning.
The second accident took place at around 12:08 in the afternoon. Seven vehicles were involved in the accident on the Southbound lane of the EDSA Ayala tunnel, on which the MMDA closed off the said section of EDSA.

It might be a coincidence because drivers could either blame it on poor weather conditions, or slippery roads. But again, if you are disciplined then you'll know that you have to drive slowly during such conditions.

My thoughts, undisciplined drivers most likely caused these accidents. That or poor maintenance on the part of the vehicle owner.
