This day in history from:

Forced recovery

I was, until last night, still suffering from the flu.

But I had a lot of work to do. So I had no choice but to, as the famous sports apparel says, "just do it."

And for what it's worth, simply doing it forced my quick recovery. I even had a very long day today that started early, as in 5:00 a.m.

I had to wake up that early to take both Bea to school and my Mom back to San Juan for her aunt's interment rites. Going back and forth from that area these past few days took its toll on my body. And I'm glad I made it through today, recovered from the flu despite another trip there.

Then on to some paperwork at the office, half of which I opened because I was one of the first persons there.

Then to my consultancy for a few hours.

Then back to the office for our partner's meeting, where we talked about the crucial decision we had to make.

Then immediately on to another meeting, this time to compile and prepare documents for a bidding our client is joining. That lasted until about 7:00 p.m.

So now, I'm at home still doing some work and preparing for a hearing tomorrow, and spending time on the net, specifically, waiting for the listing of Ynzal's Red Tag Sale.

Speaking of which...

I'm pretty saddened about what happened to Ynzal. It's our nearest Apple products seller. It's practically a few steps from our office. And despite the fact that we have another Apple reseller as a client (which we had only recently), we are loyal Ynzal patrons.

And in hindsight, I bet these other Apple resellers have committed greater sins against Apple than Ynzal. And it has done more to promote Apple products than the others combined. As far as I know, no other reseller has a trade-in program, which keeps you coming back to Apple again and again. This strategy is ideal in third-world countries like the Philippines, where Apple products are slightly out of reach, even from those who are better off.

And it is an open secret that Ynzal sells Apple products at a significantly lower price range, even without the trade-in option, which probably led to it losing its reseller status.

I think Ynzal lost its Apple reseller status not really because of its failure to properly handle the complaint of a customer. I think the decision was influenced by other resellers that have been out-competed by Ynzal. Consequently, I don't know what will happen to the sale of Apple products henceforth.

With what happened, I don't know if there will still be a secondary Apple market in the Philippines. I sure hope there will still be one. Because that makes it easier for me to keep coming back to buy Apple products. I really don't know if I can still but another laptop with the trade-in option gone. Or if I want to.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
