Vacation: Over. Back to work again. 2 weeks is to short and I lost a day in travelling from east to west over the International date line with 14 hours of air flight. (Which is 12 hours when done west to east since it rides along the rotation of the earth.) But it was still good well spent quality time with my family.
SEO Contest: With last minute efforts, I was already number 10 that night. But was dancing at 10 and 11. And the top 10 win a prize. And when it was the official results time to refresh it, I moved to 11. Nyhahaha. Some of my friends told me it sucks, but all I can say, the SEO lessons in the contest are priceless. There’s a lot that I have learned in this contest. I have some photos of the Isulong SEOph SEO contest event here.
Michael Turner of HarvestSEO got some photos too and said something about me attending the event. He’s probably right. 🙂
Anton Diaz had a nice photo with me in the center, and also with my wife in the group photo. 🙂
The Storm: The day right after I came to the Philippines was when typhoon Milenyo passed by and knocked down a bunch of trees and electrical post. We had no electricity for 2 days while other areas were worse, up to today, some places in Bicol have no power and even phone lines are dead too.
Photos/Videos: I will try to prepare them and uploaded one by one. I still got to catch up with emails, voicemails, IM’s, snail mails, all waiting for my attention.
Back to Work: Yes, and I miss my family already. I drove my daughter everyday to school, and went with my wife everywhere. I came to the US Tuesday 12am, sorted my stuff, slept at 4am, went to work, came home, slept and… wow, I slept too long! I woke up at 3:30pm and called up the office right away. Well I will get a lot of sleep now, so I can catch up. At 4:40pm, I decided to pass by Einstein Industries just before they go home at 5:00pm and talk to a few friends and leave some dried mangos. Tomorrow is all work again.
