Red Spells a Lucky Charm!

We are Team Red! It's such a coincidence that the four of us were all wearing red yesterday, during the day that we took the ISTQB Certification exam.

Me and my three teammates took together the said examination on the same batch. We were surprised seeing each other wearing the same color - red!

Even the wall in the examination room is also painted in red! That's why right after the exam and right after we passed, we had our souvenir photos.

Here is our picture-taking lucky moment right after we passed the International Software Testing Board:


They say that red is a lucky color. And that proves to be true based our own experience!

Actually red is my favorite color since birth! I love the color of red. It symbolizes different things such as love, courage, life, and of course lucky charm! The last term is true in our case! Thanks God!

It also seems that we attended a red carpet premiere night because of our common red attire. Remember, most of the premiere nights I have already attended have actors wearing red?! Nice!

Now the four of us wearing red in the picture were all Certified Software Engineers! Thank you Lord for your blessings! c",)

I Am Now an ISTQB Certified Software Engineer!



September 10, 2012 is another milestone in my career. This is the date when I passed one of the important board exam and certification in our profession. This is the ISTQB or the International Software Testing Qualifications Board! This is an International Certification in the field of software testing engineering!

All the hardships in terms of time pressure, peer pressure, and overnight reviews during weekends were now turned to a sweet fruit that I'm starting to enjoy!

I had a very little time to have my own review for this certification. We had a month-long Monday review sessions for this certification but because of my too busy schedules, I wasn't able to attend most of the sessions! I've just got a serious review last week, one hour every after work and a full blast last Saturday and Sunday!

Thank God, I didn't only passed the exam, I even got a high score!



The examination is a computer-based exam consisting of 40 difficult questions. The passing score is 26 points or 65%. I got an overall correct answer of 30 points or 75%! Wow!

Above were the pictures of my examination result right after the exam. My certification will be given to us six to eight weeks now!

ISTQB certification is an International Board Exam! It is recognize all over the world in our field of Software Engineer. Certification represents recognition of a particular individual’s professional competence. It is prestige for the individual and a competitive advantage over non-certified individuals in the same field. Many companies consider ISTQB certification as a plus point for employees during appraisals. And during employee recruitment here and abroad, many companies prefer certified employees over non certified employees!

On my next post, I will share with you more of my success story pertaining to this prestige international certification. Thank you Lord for this another great blessing! c",)

VISA Approved!

Just this morning, I applied for my VISA and it was successfully approved by the consul!

Yup, I am required to be sent outside the country (I won't disclose the country for the meantime) initially for a minimum of three months.

Below is my VISA confirmation which is an initial process for the application. Sorry, I blocked some important details for security purposes! :)



My target date of travel will be on the first week of August. And I am so excited to be in one of the world's most beautiful country!

I hope I can immediately return to the Philippines by the start of the BER months since I have lots of event lineups for the said months!

For now, I will just enjoy this great opportunity given by my beloved company! Thank you! Hope to see more international stars in that country! c",)
