#23 All Time Favorite Post- A Risk Worth Taking

Revisited… 

I was so nervous, I thought, I’m not gonna make it alive!

Scuba Diving in depths of the ocean

I like to learn new skill and somehow I like to see the world under water so I thought scuba diving would be very interesting. I enrolled in the Open Sea Course even I am not a good swimmer. I’m only good at floating. Hahaha.

I was glad I did it! I was able to enjoy the world under the sea!

It’s worth taking!

February, 2009, Red Sea

Open Sea Dive, October 2008

Open sea dive, June 2008, during the course training

Well, I am looking forward to dive again in the future.  The last time I did it was last April of 2010 and I was already halfway down when I signaled my buddy that I wanted to come up already.  I just didn’t feel right to go for it.  I felt something it was not good that I have to trust my gut about it.  I nearly panicked, I got blocked out I did not even know which button I would push so that I could start my way up!  Thank God my buddy was quick enough to understand me, he pushed the button for me.  Good Lord I reached the shore safe. Hahahaha

But the next time I will dive, I make sure I know that I can really swim, I mean really know how to swim and not just float…  hahaha 🙂

You bet I’m at MY BEST when I’m over-the-moon kind of feeling…

And when I’m over the moon…  I’d treat myself with a complete French Meal!!!

I begin with my choices of “Starters” or Appetizers

Le Rustique cheese fondue

Any kinds of “Salads”, but I prefer a Vegetable Salad like this one that I usually make by myself with my own choice of vegetables like carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, green & red bell peppers garnished with ring onions, dried rosemary or persil leaves, olive oils,  and lemons.  I like to dress my salad with 99% fat free Kraft Thousand Island dressing or just with a plain vinegar, olive oil and a pinch of rock salt  dressing.  Classic! This salad will be perfect to continue with any kind of a main dish I would prefer on that special day when I am at my BEST.

Mixed Vegetable Salad

Of course! French Wine!  Unfortunately, I don’t have it here in Jeddah, but you bet this is what I usually have when I spend my holidays in France.

Lots of It!!! Hahaha

Sancerre Wines are the best, they come from Sancerre, Center France

Sancerre… Tasting the Real France, Summer 2011

The  “main course”

Rack of Lamb with Vegetable... My chef husband just loves to prepare this meal for me... mmm really delicious!

AND My favorite dessert!

Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream... I took this photo just one week ago at the Mug & Bean Restaurant in Jeddah

And always say “Cheese!!!”

I love cheese!!!  We have all of these kind of cheeses available in France.  6 Kinds of cheeses Phil & Vicky prepared for us when we had our dinner to their place in the suburbs part of Paris at Nogent sur Marne before the Fireworks.

Fireworks, July 14, 2011 French Revolution Day

 Champagne in between…

And I wouldn’t be satisfied without a hot cup of coffee after a heavy meal…

Yes! I am over the moon when everything around my own universe just goes smoothly right to its course. It’s when my goal and all the things I wish to accomplish would just flow to where I want them and so naturally I would breath-in Joy, Peace, Smile, Love, Wealth, Health, and Happiness. All these eureka become the powerful energy that I would take in. This energy builds inside me brighter and brighter, stronger and stronger creating an aura that surrounds me with protection, self confidence, beauty, true joy and at my Best in all ways at all times.

I bloom and glow like this beautiful orchids…
It said,”Would you take a photo of me? S’il vous plaît? So I did.  It looks gorgeous isn’t it?

And so when I am at my best, I am over the moon to treat myself with a complete French Meal, from a starter to dessert and cheese. Just Perfect!

Jeddah is a nice city where you can meet a lot of nice people too!

A Beautiful Sunset View In Jeddah

In this Private beach, you see a lot of foreigners from different countries, like Canada, France, Norway, Italy, Australia, Japan, Philippines. All are enjoying the privilege to swim freely and have fun.

Private beach in Jeddah where you can freely swim and scuba dive!

I work as an Orthodontist and live in the City of Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for about almost 4 years now. I would never have thought to coming here at all, to think that I got my Residency Research Fellowship at the USIID in N.Y. 

This photo was taken sometimes November of 1996 at Dr. Weiss' Tower Dental suite 69/F of The Chrysler Building, 405 Lexington Avenue, Manhattan, New York City. My colleague took this shot to capture the sunset with the Empire Tower and me by the window. It was amazing shot! You can spot my dental chair though reflected on my glass window... hahahaha... anyway we can understand that he is a tooth doctor like me and not a professional photographer, right? Right! Thank you 🙂

So everyone usually ask me why not I stayed in the US

Good thing I had this chance to have this pose with The Twin Towers as my background, 1996, five years before the September 11 Attacks.

 instead of coming to Jeddah?

Every time I go in public I must wear my black uniform known as "abaya". I asked my dental nurse to take this shot while posing like I was picking up the Mosque. Then after a few minutes a Saudi lady came to ask us to show her the photo we just took because she got so curious what we were doing. I asked my nurse who is a Muslim, "did we do something bad, is she gonna report us or something?" Then we showed her the shots we took. And she was happy and amazed how we came up with that idea like we're holding the mosque tower. Hahahaha... funny.

Well it was a long story. But for sure it’s all about the package they offered to me so I took the job.
Anyways I get to visit my birth country Philippines

The Hundred Islands, Philippines, Alaminus Pangasinan

and Paris

Eiffel Tower at Night, Paris France

every 6 months and spend my holidays with my love ones.

With my kids

with my French family...

So far I am already adjusted to it at the moment but it won’t be forever though, hehehehe because I look forward to live in France for good.

NO WAY I can change the World….

But I can change My Own Universe!

Abstract Colorful Universe Wallpaper – TTdesign

…because the whole world of opportunity is open out there not only for me but to all of us. We only differ from each of our own beliefs because we have what we called "Free Will".

And I choose to believe that I can achieve anything I want to so I am taking charge of my life and making a difference!

The world keeps evolving every now and then thus I will keep adjusting to my needs too and passionately pursue my mission by keeping in mind this guiding light of Winston Churchill, "Never never never give up!"

HAPPINESS is the sum totaL of LOVE, HEALTH, WEALTH and SUCCESS. And my goal is to have Happiness.

I keep all vital areas of my life in balance to hold on to my goal to be HAPPY always… And when I am happy then naturally I have those four creatures mentioned above… 🙂

Just then and only then the world would appreciate what I have in store for its change if not at least help make it a better place to live in for all of us, just like the way I see it in my own Universe…
