Linens Say a Lot

My brother in law works in Hotel Xanadu in Manila. He works there the longest so he is like the right hand of its Chinese owner. As per job description, he is in-charge of cleaning the rooms as the guests come and go. He often jokes to us that he is good in bed because he knows bedmaking, a term used pertaining on how the beds should be fixed.

One time, there was a big event that was held there. The local government of Manila rented the biggest hall for their function. Eventhough it was not his area, he helped in the preparation. He did the prettiest ribbon linen design on the chairs that’s why their boss said that he should do all the ribbons. He was so tired but what was fulfilling is that the mayor of Manila praised the design what he did and the nice linens they’ve found them here.

Secrets To Staying In Love

This February, my spouse and I are celebrating our 8th year anniversary. We’ve been together since college years, and I feel so proud of our relationship. If you are wondering how we managed to stay together for nearly a decade, let me give you several secrets. Firstly, I am going to admit that I am a jealous person. When we were in college, I would get angry whenever another person of the opposite gender talks to my spouse.

However, I realized that this is not helping our case, and my spouse would not do anything to hurt me, so I became less jealous. As for the arguments, when one of us is mad, the other just stays silent. It helps us diffuse what would be a ticking bomb early on. The lines of communication are also open between us. We talk about our feelings, things to improve our relationship, and even monetary matters. If there is one secret that we have, that is the secret to staying in love with each other, even after all those years.
