Five Years and Counting at Round Mountain Gold Corporation!


For many years, it had been my dream to be a part of  Round Mountain Gold Corporation family. Hubby had worked in the company for almost 10 years but decided to move to Winnemucca when my kids and I arrived from the Philippines thinking there are more opportunities there. I was able to convince him to go back to Round Mountain and thankfully, he got rehired.

Now, I am celebrating my 5th year in RMGC!  Thanks to my husband! And thanks to my Filipino friends Mary Rose and Mona (they are sisters) for their support. And most of all, thanks to the Lord God above. It was truly by grace and I am very thankful and grateful.

I started working in the General Store which is owned by the mine. I worked at the Meat Department and mind you, I got to learn how to cut rump roast, hahaha! Also, I had been able to identify different cuts of steaks. Thanks to my mentors, Mr. John my Manager at that time and  Justin who is now working in the IT Department, also in RMGC. And not only that, I got to try all kinds of cheeses (smoked Gouda became my favorite) and deli meats! And I got to meet all the people in the community and being a people person, that made me really happy. I liked the job but I wanted to work  "inside" the mine for more money and for a greater challenge. 

As soon as I got my first year anniversary in the company, I applied at the Assay Lab. Yes, we are allowed to find another job from different department after a year. The interview was tough, it was nerve wracking because it was a panel interview. I remember the Ore Processing Manager asked me about Mathematics. I answered, "Math was not my favorite subject back in high school and college, I am not really good at it because I don't like numbers, but I am sure in the Assay Lab, I could use calculator when needed." I thought that was the dumbest answer the interviewer has ever heard, hahaha!  Thankfully, I got hired! And the rest is history.

I am looking forward to more 5 years and another 5 years, and another 5 years onward!

Happy 5th to me!

Thank you for taking time to read my blog. I appreciate it. Have a good one!

July is UV Safety Month

Since summer months are time for fun under the sun, make sure to take the proper steps to protect yourself and your family. Skin cancer is not that bad when caught at an early stage so have your Doctor check for signs of skin cancer.  Wear 50 SPF or more before going outside.

Skin cancer facts:

More than 90 percent of all skin cancers are found on parts of the body that get the most sun: face, neck,ears, hands, and arms.

Those who have had severe or many sunburns are at higher risk.

Skin Cancer Detection:ABCDE

Asymmetry: One half doesn't match the other half.

Border Irregularity: The edges of a mole or growth are ragged, notched, or blurred.

Color: The pigmentation of a mole is not uniform. Shades of tan, brown, and black are present.

Diameter: The mole or skin growth is larger than 6mm (0.2 in), or about the size of a pencil eraser. Any growth of a mole should be of concern.

Evolution: There is a change in the size, shape, symptoms (such as itching or tenderness), surface (especially bleeding), or color of a mole.

My Bruno Mars Experience

It was fantastic! HOWEVER, it was a little bit disappointing.

I got to witness the superb performance of Bruno Mars on April 30, 2019 at the Park Theater in MGM Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada with my co-worker Mary Rose and her 2 nieces. The concert supposed to start 9:00 o'clock so we checked in an hour early. We were very excited! BUT to our dismay, they took our phones, locked it inside an individual pouch then gave it back to us. I was like, “What is happening?”  You know when you buy a pair of Levi’s or any expensive clothes, they have this black or white plastic thing for theft protection and only the cashier  can take it off using an electronic tool? That’s how the lock of the pouch looks like only smaller. We very disappointed! We were caught off guard! I did not even get to inform my husband!

The venue was pretty much big and full. The people started getting impatient after 9:20pm and the show hasn’t started yet. Mary Rose and I were like, “Is this going to be a Filipino time?” Hehe! Because Bruno Mars is half-Filipino, right?

We started screaming when the stage curtain rolled up slowly then we saw Bruno Mars and his group singing! The lights effects are awesome! With the screaming and whistling of the crowd plus the music, it got really loud that I had to protect my ears ( I did not want to spend another $317.00!), I took the ear plugs from my bag and wear them. It was still loud but my ears felt a lot better.

Bruno Mars is not tall (5'5")! He looks so little being surrounded with his tall band members! He wore a white sleeveless shirt underneath his long orange printed all-button down long sleeves shirts, blue jeans and white sneakers. He was wearing a kinda head band and his curly hair was exposed. As I was looking at him, I actually was thinking about his shirts, hehe! It was not really fancy but, dang, he is the cutest! He was teasing us about our phone being locked. He said he could do what he wants, could even take his shirts off and no one can record it and while he was saying that, he smiles like a naughty boy and it was priceless!

The concert went on for 95mins and when it was over, it was already a little past 11pm!

The unlocking of phones was pretty cool and amazing, the theater people just stood by the exit door holding and clicking a tool, (they didn't need to hold the pouch), and voila! The pouch was unlocked! When I got my phone, I got a dozen of text messages from my husband and miscalls trying to get hold of me, wondering what was going on (He was a little scared  letting me go to concerts after the bombing in Las Vegas).

Aside from the phone issue, it was a night full of blast!

Thank you for dropping by! 

Have a good one!
