I had a very long day last Sunday. Tiring but I would say, it was one of those well spent day. I’ve never been really opened to anyone before but yesterday, I got to be more comfortable speaking about what I feel towards the people around me. Thank God, for such wonderful day.
The fact that I was really really tired the previous day didn’t stop me from picking up my camera right after work the next day to take some photographs outside. And since my niece seemed to be in a good mood to be a model, I grabbed the opportunity to take some photographs of her. I love this little one so dearly, that I’m really excited to see her grow, doing the things she would come to love in the next few years. Just thinking about it makes me feel more excited. Tehee~
Today was such a busy day. I seriously need a companion in my department. My whole being was screaming HELP the whole day. Yes, in capital letters.
P.S. I was writing an entry yesterday for this photograph via iPod, then the little traitor suddenly died on me. Nice, very very nice. So yeah, my original entry was gone. :/
Yesterday, I went to the city after work to pick up some craft materials and look what I’ve found while strolling down my favorite stationary shop? Yes, washi tapes!!! You know how much I love washi tapes, see my DIY washi tape tutorial. I only got them for only P50 for 3, BTW. Cheaper than the ones you can find online. I will surely pick up some more in my next visit! The other two are fabric tapes though. Ugh! I love tapes, you see. :>
And tadaa~ Decorated my iPod case just because I don’t see anything around that I can decorate with it as of now other than my iPod. Haha!
Random: This is the current state of my working table.
And say hello to my working corner~ I was thinking of putting up some prints of my photographs on the wall, but I always having a hard time picking what to put up in there. So it always ended up not being done. So me. :P
On other news, I won’t be able to attend the Summer Youth Camp 2013, and yes, I was really really excited about it. But because of work, I CANNOT! :( But I will surely visit them on the last day though. Well, atleast. :) Happy face wins! ^^
Our Little Princess
Meet my niece, Princess. I don’t actually like her name but her mom chose it so yeah.. But I love her! She was born in Korea, on Christmas Eve. I personally would love to call her, Elle, for Noelle (Noel/Christmas), but I’m not the mom so I couldn’t do anything about it. Sad. :/
Anyway, she just came last Saturday. Everyone’s still excited about her homecoming, and I must say, she brings joy to us. Especially to my mother. And, my father is really excited to come home this Saturday to see her. Yay~ Double happiness! My papa’s coming home! :)
Earlier, after Church, we went to Harbor Point in Subic to see The Croods. If you still didn’t know, there is only one Cinema House and Balanga City, and you have to wait for a week or two to see the movie you’ve been waiting for. *facepalm* But then, I was happy that they did show “It Takes a Man and a Woman” on time. Haha~
I missed Subic! I’ve always wanted to have a Summer House in Subic Bay. Dreams do come true, yes? :P
Here we go Mr. Cinema, that everyone loves. <3
Ate Alma and Dha buying tickets and filling up seats.
My significant numbers! 2 and 4, that’s right 24!
I love THE CROODS! This is one of those animation movie that you will always go back to. I love everything about it. Even the unrealistic creatures and strength of the Croods, their personalities. EVERYTHING! Plus the graphics is so awesome, I was in awe. This movie is a must see! Highly recommended! And yeah, I kinda fell in like with Guy. He’s really the Guy! Haha~ <3
You shine like a million suns ablaze, wrapped in eternal light and praise. Jesus the First, the Last, the bright and morning Star…
I’m inlove with this song. I think I love it more than I love Oceans. Superb worship song is superb! :)
In other news, I’ll be attending the Butch Charvet Fund Raising Concert this coming Sunday. So okay, I know you didn’t know him, but I grew up listening to his music. (Papuri Songs) My brothers and I were really really a fan of him since a decade ago. I’m really excited to see him again, sitting in there, being happy watching him. Heh~
And btw, last Monday, we went to Raon to buy a new sound equipment for our Church. All thanks to Ptr. Jerry, he knows the place really well and we’ve got to buy all the things we needed knowing that our budget wasn’t that big. Truly, God is The Jehovah Jireh; Great Provider. It was really amazing, believe me! So, me ish really excited for the practice. Yeah boy, let’s rock it on for Jesus!!! :)
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
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
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
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~
“I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” -Psalm 139:14
My co-worker/sister-in-Christ Amy gave me this Christmas ball together with her early Christmas gift to me. It’s soo cute! It reminded me of that verse above for some reason. Each and everyone of us was fearfully and wonderfully made. We are special in the eyes of God. He made us, and knows us. He knows your name. All things about you. And He loves you as He loves me. So therefore, we are bound to love one another in Christ Jesus. :)
Anyway, sorry for my unannounced hiatus. I was really occupied with my offline activities. I go to work as early as 6:30 AM. That’s why I get to bed as early as I can, the usual, 8 PM. And during weekends, I am busy with my ministry. You know, doing The Great Commission. So you see, I don’t have much time to browse tumblr anymore, moreover, blog. But if you will ask, I am perfectly fine. My life has been so great! Simple yet happy! :D
