I can hear myself say “Sana mahati hati ko katawan ko.” nowadays.
Hindi naman chop chop lady levels. It’s just that I feel that there are so much things to be done and I have to be everywhere at once.
Leading the list of to do is the 10 buildings that will be Ready For Occupancy. This quarter lang yan ha! That is around 4,400 units and I am in charge of the turnover of all them. Take note, these projects are not in the same area. We have in Balintawak, Amang Rodriguez, Quezon City, Pasig, Taguig and Paranaque. And I try to go to these sites as often as I can before their RFO dates. So best friends na talaga kami ni Waze and ng traffic.
It’s quite busy in the office and at our construction sites now. It’s challenging too because this is the first time magsasabay sabay ng ganyan ka-daming turnover in a time. It’s exciting because gosh, I love my job! I get a rush everytime we finish a project. I saw the project kasi from the time it was just a heap of ugly concrete to the resort type community it will be when we’re ready to open our doors to our unit owners. My job is to make sure everything is ready and well coordinated before and to the day of the RFO. Madaming departments kasi ang involved: construction, design, landscape, interior design, property management and post-construction. May back room or support groups pa na mga departments behind that. It’s as if I’m coordinating a grand wedding for each project. Hindi lang kasi alam ng madaming tao na to meet the committed RFO date, group effort talaga. Tulong tulong ang lahat.
The weeks leading to the RFO date, diyan na ako pumapasok. I meet with the different departments, organize the final walk through with them and get the clients ready for the turnover.
Ang saya. Nakakaloka. Nakaka-challenge. It’s exhilarating. And I am glad I have the best people ever. I’ll blog nga about each building as they RFO ano? Sige. I’ll do that so you’ll see how beautiful our projects are. My cousins-in-law went to a beach resort in Cayo, Cuba last week. When I saw their photos in the resort, nagulat ako! I thought they were just here in Manila in one of our projects. So nice! =)
Another thing that I am agit about is where to go on our anniversary this September. Alvin and I are celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary. We have not made plans yet so I guess going anywhere that will involve an airplane is out of the question na. Hindi naman pwedeng bahay lang because hello, (1) I want to celebrate we were able to reach another year in our married life. Hindi yata madali yun and alam ng lahat ng magasawa yan. And (2) this will be one of the rare times na pwede ko masolo ang asawa ko. I will not pass that up.
Lastly are the tiny things: doctor appointments, my wavy hair, my nails, my skin, grocery and wet market trips, things I have to take photos of and post, my clothes that I need to sort and sell, etc etc.
This meme is so true!
