Guess who has a new theme?! Haha~ So finally, after 8 months, I was able to make new look for my blog. And whoever wanted my previous one, I’m just a message away for the codes. (*^▽^*)
My weekend had been very productive. Yesterday, we went out to see a house, since we are looking for one to buy. I like the house but my mom doesn’t like it, so… I am hoping that we could find one that we really like before the year ends. *crossing my fingers*
And then while we were on our way back we saw a newly opened cafe in the city. Well, it’s not really new, it’s just that “The Beanery” has a new branch. It’s like one of the most popular Cafe in the city. And this new one has to be the cutest. Too bad, I didn’t have my camera with me yesterday plus the place was kinda crowded so I wasn’t able to take photographs of the whole place.
Sunday - It was a typical Sunday. Church + Lunch + Sleep. But when I woke up for my ever favorite Sunday afternoon nap, Rona and the “gang” was at home. And they wanted to go to the sea shore, so we went. We stayed there ‘till 7pm, telling stories and laughing and everything PDA. (Public Display of Abnormality) （＾ｖ＾）
And I’ve got to finish some of my office work in between of the whole weekend. So nice~ And again, I have my new theme. Yehey~ My theme was Wit&Wistle inspired btw. Ayoy~
I’ll be hitting the shower now and get a goodnight sleep. Tomorrow’s gonna be a long day. Manila, see you! (*°∀°)=3
Everything is changing. Day by day we don’t notice, but just look back over the past year and you will realize everything has. People you thought were going to be there forever, aren’t, and people you never imagined you’d be speaking to are now some of your closest friends. Life makes little sense, and the more we grow the less sense it will make. So make the most of it now, before it all changes once again, because in the near future, all of this is only going to be memories.

Amy and I dropped by on a pet store right after we did the banking. She mentioned that she’s looking for a fighting fish so I told her that there’s a pet store just right across the streets. And I also got caught with it, I thought it was really pretty and so Amy bought one for me too. Haha~ It’s cuter in real life, I swear! >^> So, welcome to my new companion here. But I’m still thinking for a cute name, any idea? :P
Having a fish makes me think about fish jokes. So here’s some I know. They’re meant to be corny okay? Hahahaha!
Anong fish ang di makapal? Sagot: Eh di maniFISH! :))
Anong isda ang lumilipad? Sagot: Eh di iFISH! :))
Anong isda ang hindi nababasa? Sagot: TUYO! :))
Ano naman ang isdang laging basa? Sagot: Eh di HITO! HITO ako ohhhhh… basang basa sa ulan… ♫
Fish be with you! Pasensya na, lutang lang. Ingat loves! <3
Let’s get kawaii!
Cute beings that I almost forgot I do have. I have this bad habit of buying “kawaii things” and never used them at all. I just love storing them in a box and found them again after a while. But you know, it really breaks my heart to use them. E.g. I bought notebooks, but because they were too pretty, I won’t write on them. So they will end up as display. Hehhh~
P.S. I love stickers! And I was able to keep my stickers since I was 8 or 9, I think? :)
P.S.S. Stay tuned for my new theme! It’s about time. ^~^
It’s hard to look for something new when what you want is right in front of you.
After 48 years, I had my Sunday afternoon nap! It seems like forever since the last time I had one. Feels so good! And I wanna sing… “If I had the chance to make one wish, every single moment would be like this. Laying here baby, just me and you.. Yeah, and every day would be Sunday afternoon..”
And speaking of music, Hillsong United launched their first album for the year 2013 called Zion. Oceans is my favorite so far.
That’s why most of my worship posts on intagram and on twitter were basically from that song. I can’t say that the whole album was great, but for now it was good. Hillsong changed so much, and I could literally say, Hillsong will never be the same without Marty Samson. But you know, it is not about them, it’s about the worship, the songs, the message. It’s about God.. music just follows.
I will call upon Your Name,keep my eyes above the waves. My soul will rest in Your embrace, for I am Yours and You are mine… ♥
When the world gives way, You covers us with endless grace.
Every evening you paint the sky in a different manner, design and pattern. You intricately shape and twirl Your rays of light - aligning them perfectly amongst one another. You choose colors particularly, carefully and mindfully. You blend collections of oranges, magentas, indigos and violets together, with occasional hints of turquoise. You string clouds great and small across the wide open space, delicately shaping them ever so gently and perfectly. That they might hang and exist in harmony. All that You bring into existence, stands to bring You glory and praise. May I forever be mindful of that which You orchestrate daily. Father, Your art is truly magnificent! And I am forever grateful to see its beauty right before my eyes.
I don’t have much time to blog “again”. Ugh, I hate saying that like everytime I make a blog entry. >.> But yeah, I become this super overly busy person. I don’t know how this happen. I’m sure, I’ll become more busy once I get to school again. So before I leave a hiatus sign in here, let me share some pictures from my iPod.
Valentines Dinner with my my co-workers! There’s a lot of food on the table but I just ate these plus Spring Rolls (not in the picture). During the dinner we get to share our past experiences, good and bad. And how God worked in our lives amazingly and wonderfully!
One Saturday. Amy and I were on our way to the church from a Leader’s Meeting. I love the sun the most during sunset.
Last Sunday. In real life, I was known for being a braid freak. Like, there’s never a day that I don’t have my braids. &.&
We saw this big leaf on the street on our way down from the Orphanage.That day, I don’t know, but I was really happy and cheerful for some reason. That’s why I even work that day as a volunteer. So much energy huh? Knowing that I have work during Mondays to Fridays. But yeah, after 2 days, I got sick. Hahaha~ But thanks to Almighty, I’m feelin’ better now. :D
So okay, that’s all for now! Goodnight pretty people~
The tide breaks, you watch the stars fade. They gather you back to their home, I guess it’s better than being alone.
I didn’t go to work today, instead I went to LTO this morning for my license, because I’m feeling guilty driving on a highway without any license at all. Yeah, I know, I was being an irresponsible citizen of this country for doing that for almost a year. I’m sorry, okay?
And good thing about being at home after, I got to rest all through out the day. Lord knows, I feel so exhausted all over for being so active. So, here in my room, watching Starry Starry Night again, just exactly what I need.
My January was consist of Hiking, watching sunrise and sunsets, sleepovers, playground swings, team bulding and Ministry. I am lovin’ 2013 so far! And I started building stronger foundation when it comes to my relationship with my friends in Church. And it’s also one way of discovering more of myself, my potentials and things I could do not only for myself, but also for others. I have found that we grow to maturity not by doing what we like, but by doing what we should. Truly, happiness is not something ready made. It comes from our own actions. And I am doing the happy things, for I know that it’s what God’s original plan for me, to be happy. :D
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23, NIV)
At some point in life we all face hardships. It may be something physically or emotionally challenging. Or it may be a dream or an opportunity that we missed out on. Whatever your difficulty is, don’t let it discourage you from believing in God’s best. The enemy wants to keep you focused on everything negative that’s happened, but don’t let him steal the dreams God has given you. He knows that if he can deceive you into thinking things won’t get better, you’ll lose hope and give up.
There will always be obstacles trying to keep you from becoming all God’s created you to be, but God has given you a promise for good and not harm. He has plans for better things ahead. It’s important to believe God and keep an attitude of faith despite your circumstances.
Choose today to hold on to God’s promises no matter what your situation looks like. Refuse to give up on the plans He has made for your life. God knows what challenges you’ve faced, and He has a way to turn things around for your good. Start thanking and praising Him for what He’s already done and what He will do.
I bought a new desk today. Yey! To my desk of five years, thanks for keeping me company all through these years. Hehe~
I was ranting about not having a decent sleep these past few weeks, because I was busy with Youth Activities and spending more time with my friends. Sleep overs here and there and all I can say is that, I was having the time of my life. Haha!
Just last friday, I slept with my friends at Aeron’s house. But before going in there with Rona, I realized that I left my office keys somewhere I can’t remember, like seriously, my KEYS were missing. I searched everywhere in my room, but no keys were found. So I drove back in church to see if I left it there, but no sign again. I had no choice, I need to go back in the office. So I drove all the way back to King’s Garden alone. And yes, I was driving on a dead road with no streetlights. The road was like “wrong turn”. Hahahaha~ Well, going back was worth it, I left my keys on the kitchen. Thank God! I could finally sleep in peace. :D
Back to sleep over at Aeron’s house, it was fun fun fun! We slept at 3 in the morning and I had work the next day, so yeah. Hahahaha~ And I’m really glad that Amy is more comfortable now hanging with us. Can’t wait for next friday night. ^^
Anyway, I received a late Christmas gift from one of my readers that turned to be a good friend of mine now. Heeee~ Super dooper cuteness! Thanks Ervie~ You know I love you. <3
Life is so beautiful right now, I can’t thank God enough.
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” - Revelation 21:4
We are all currently busy in the office preparing for Lola’s Memorial Service tomorrow. I know, everyone has this mixed-emotion about her death. Six months ago, we were just celebrating her 100th birthday. Yes, people, her 100th birthday. But after half a year, she went Home. So who is “Lola”?
I remembered her being that Lola who goes to church every Sunday with a bunch of kids. When I first saw her at the age of nine or ten maybe, I was really intrigued by her because she’s the only american woman in the church. And I was really curious about the bunch of kids who goes with her. And then I’ve heard, she owned an orphanage. And those kids were what they called, orphans. It was the very first time that I have known someone who will actually build an orphanage to give home for abandoned, neglected and rejected kids. I thought, it only happens in the movies. At that age, I never thought that orphanage really do exist. My young heart was touched by her. I even told myself, “Someday, I’m gonna be like her. I will build an orphanage and help those kids without a home or food to eat.” She inspired me to be a missionary. And still, at this time, the dream and the inspiration to become one someday is in my heart.
She taught me that one is never too old to serve. Just so you know, she built the orphanage at the age of 87. She sold all her property in the US to fulfill God’s calling for her. She had nothing but “Faith” when she started coming in here. Her mission was delayed but she didn’t quit. Reverend Lois Prater left a mark in my heart, to us. Maybe that’s why, I’m in this job right now, starting my own mission. Fulfilling God’s calling inch by inch. I always imagine myself going town to town, province to province, spreading the love of Christ. But for now, I’ll stay here. Showing Christ’s love in Action that Lola started. We will miss you Lola. And Thank You for the lessons that you have taught us by your ministry. We love you.
Nos veremos otra vez~
It’s Saturday, so that means, “Cleaning Day” for me since I don’t clean during weekdays anymore. And I was actually surprised that except for dusting and sweeping the floor, I have nothing more to fix. Everything was organized, even my drawers! That’s really shocking because I usually get my things disorder every morning especially when I’m running late for work.
See? I’m hoping I can maintain this, because honestly, at this age, I still get scolded a lot by my mother because of my things being all messy. Wait(?) I don’t even know how she defines messy, because even though I already think that’s my things are well organized, she would still say, “It’s messy”, like seriously mom?!! Well, she’s like that. >.>
Anyway, I noticed this box in my craft’s drawer and decided to make use of one of my decotapes because, really, it looks boring. So yeah, another cutie pie for my drawer was born. :)
Also, I saw these Christmas pencils that I almost forgot that I do have. I love pencils and pens as much as I love papers and everything school supplies. LOL~
Somehow, I love today. <3
“God sings, we hum along, and there are many melodies, but it’s all one song - one same, wonderful, human song.”
Some strawberries and a Mitch Albom book after work. I have lots of stories to tell but I’m always stuck on my bed these days… Reading. Watching. Sleeping. It seems that, I lost all my energy for the first three weeks of 2013. Not only my energy, I think, I lost my brain somewhere else too. Say whut?! And now, I’m singing…. Paper works. “Why you gotta be so mean?”
But Oh wait? Next week’s gonna be awesome. Yay! The girl behind this blog ish soo eggcited. *wiggle wiggle* Thank You Lord for the blessings!!! I guess, all we really need is to have a little faith (!) (*^▽^*)
P.S. Who else here eats strawberries with salt? I need someone to tell me it’s normal. LOL~
