Merry Christmas! *Though my greeting seems kind of late*. Thanks for all the Christmas Messages/Greetings I received here.

I was soo busy the whole week because of 2(two) impending parties for 23 and 24. December 23 for the office and December 24 for relatives, people close to us, and people in the office who are dear.

Everything went out well. I had tons of fun organizing the games for the "23" event. It was an "extra challenge/amazing race" sort of game consisting of five(5) different stations. Each station have their own corresponding lesson that is pretty much related to real life. Like, "seek and you shall find", "strike the balance", "listen, focus and reach for your dreams", "healthy lifestyle" and "creativity under pressure".

I would probably share the whole game one of these days.

By 24, everyone just got together, dined and talked.

By 25, we had a movie marathon with all my cousins present. By 7pm everyone decided to go to the People's Park and there everything started to go crazy for me. I was in a "bad mood" which came as a shock because I rarely have those. Really. I was so gloomy everybody noticed it. Maybe because there were a lot of people at the park and I've seen a lot of them spoiling the Green Theater (e.g. garbages all over). It's a new park and they're spoiling it. Huuuuuu. Or maybe some of my cousins were just too loud and sarcastic that it annoys me. Oh well. I guess they do happen sometimes. But, I shifted now.

Happy Holidays!

Shout Out: to Christian from for the gift.

Kindness plays a very important role in our society nowadays. That's why in everything that I do I try to incorporate "kindness" in my life and I also try to infect other people.

We are inherently kind. But to practice kindness to people we meet everyday specially to ones we don't personally know is kind of rare nowadays.

Last October 13 was a special day for Ate Jireh. She decided to spend her birthday *actually her birthday was on Oct. 17* to kids at a "Drop-In Center" located in San Pedro Street, Davao City.

Knowing her plans, I decided to help out and she agreed. I talked to people in the office and they are thrilled & "inspired" by the idea, they in turn asked if they can also help out and join.

It was a fun day for everyone. We introduced each other and then played a few games. Ate Jireh, me, kids and company were all having fun. It was a bit awkward at the beginning but we got the hang of it in the end.

It's great to bring joy and show kindness to kids. Seeing them so happy and excited.

Thank you Ate Ji for inspiring us and for sharing the experience with us. :)

Have a great week!

Walk for the Land

Ever since I saw the documentary in ABS CBN about the Sumilao Farmers, I wanted to do something.

Then, I saw this online petition that's been going on for days already: Sumilao

At least online I get to support them. Return the Land to the Farmers.

They did it in a peaceful way and I admire them for that. T_T.

If only I'm there now.

But... I'm here. You have my support and prayers.

For their Position Paper - click HERE.

I encourage you to join the support for the Sumilao Farmers. Thank you. :)

Stars That Shine

*yawn* I stretched my hands, as I woke up.

*pitter patter pitter patter*

"It's raining!", I thought. I jumped out of bed. Greeted everyone with a cheery "Good Morning!".

Ahh... how lovely. It's raining. I just love the sound... another reason to stay in bed.

I fixed myself a cup of coffee and read a good book. One with aliens visiting Planet Earth. They say they come in peace. We'll see about that Extraterrestrials.

and that's how everything began...

and that's partly the reason why I decided to just redesign my blog. I wasn't planning to change it or anything but I grew tired of the look and I'm not that fond of 3 columns anyway. That's what happens whenever I hear raindrops. Haha.

I guess I'll stay home till the rain stops. I just want to rest a bit *that is if I get to rest at all, what with a book by my side*.


  • My mom and I were doing back-to-back sessions the past two days to a couple of teachers. It's actually another new experience. You have professionals as audience. I made the introduction and also the last part of the session.
  • I still have to work out something for the office's Christmas Party this 23. *di na daw uso ang party ngayon?*
  • I can't wait for the Adobe Photoshop Seminar.
  • got to finish Margaret Cuthbert's Silent Cradle.
To Davao City residents who are interested to join the Adobe Photoshop Seminar:

Where: Felis Beach Resort

Have a great week ahead!

Tis the Season

This month climbed so fast. As soon as it arrived it would soon disappear and we would greet a whole NEW YEAR.

Time flies so fast. Is it just me or what?

Einstein has this "Theory of Relativity" where time moves according to what you are doing.

I learned so many things this year. I'd probably recount it by the last day of this year like what I did with last year's firsts.

I have so many things I want to do right now:

  • clean my room (yes. AGAIN. it clutters up right after I clean it)
  • redesign my planner for next year.
  • print all the photos of this year. They are piling up already. I need to place it on my journal and my desire notebook.
  • start my "SCRAP BOOK".
  • read more books. my to-reads are piling up.
  • watch my must-see-movies. Hehe. at least let me have the luxury sometimes.

I finally saw Mayor Rodrigo Duterte at work. I heard his "words" which he is famous with live last week.

I have so many tags in my draft I'd do two or more this time.

This one from Dimaks:

This tag requires the following steps:
  1. Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day).
  2. Write down three events, 2 births, 1 holiday and tag 5 friends.
  3. There are five slots in the Birthday Meme. As you are tagged, you have to remove the name in the first slot and bump everyone up so that your name can be added to the bottom.

February 13

3 events:

2 births:

1 holiday (liturgical feast):

The list:

There were a lot of events during Feb.13 the challenge was to choose just (3) three. So, I chose what seemed appealing to me. Knights always rings a bell to me and so I decided to place that event here. I salute "feminine energy" as a balance to "masculine energy", so I included that feminist newspaper. I am fascinated with diamonds (just fascinated) and it's also just recent.

The only two familiar names in the birth list. Hehe.
