Hands On Manila – Servathon 2008

In coordination with Hands on Manila, Accenture Caring for Tomorrow participated in Servathon 2008 last October 11. We went to White Cross Children’s Home to paint the playroom and do some gardening. This was my first time to participate in this company initiative and I really enjoyed it. At first I wasn’t sure how to do it but in the long run, I got the hang of it and just enjoyed what I’m doing. I will definitely do it again next year. 😀

Must haves…

Last night, while waiting for the screening time of The Oxford Murders (As part of the Spanish Film Festival), I looked around MusicOne and Powerbooks for the CDs and Books that I can buy. I didn’t actually buy them, I just listed them down for the mean time until I have the “power” to buy them. Hehe. Do you think they are great buys or no?

1. Classical Heartbreakers (CD) – For the longest time now, I am meaning to buy a CD of classical music. Instrumental music are much better to listen to especially when I am working. Classical Heartbreakers is a two-disk compilation of soundtracks from movies like “Truly, Madly, Deeply”, “Somewhere In Time”, “The Hours”, “The Pianist”, “The GodFather”. “The Pianist”, “The English Patient”, and many more. Most, if not all, of these movies I haven’t really seen but I don’t think I will be disappointed. I forgot though how much it costs. Haha!

2. Into the Wild (DVD/Book) – The book is written by Jon Krakauer and the movie was directed by Sean Penn. I’m not really sure what made me curious about this movie (maybe something I read) but I am really looking forward to buy the DVD. BUt I also want to buy the book. Decisions, decisions. The book costs P835 while the DVD costs P375 (I think).

3. Angela’s Ashes, ‘Tis and Teacher Man (novels by Frank McCourt) – I always see Angela’s Ashes and ‘Tis in bookstores, even booksales and maybe that picked my curiosity to read them. A part of me is hesitant to buy it because I still have a lot of books in pile and adding three more might be exaggerating. Plus, I’m sure my mom will be psyched if she sees me bringing more and more books into the house. Haha! Decisions, desicions.
