Prayer Tag

I got tag from Miel --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1. List 5 persons whom we wish to have good health. Pwedeng miyembro ng pamilya na may sakit, kamag-anak o malapit na kaibigan. Pwede ding mga taong nde nyo masyadong ka-close pero humihingi ng prayers sa inyo.

(Revised: kahit walang sakit basta gusto mong i-pray or health here does not mean physical health lamang…)

2. Mag offer ng prayer para sa kanila. Pwedeng personal prayer, rosary o pag aalay ng misa.

3. Mag tag ng kahit ilang tao. Mas marami mas maganda, mas maraming magdadasal. Simple lang di ba?--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1. I am praying for my nephew Gino Paulo (he has a fever right now and got me paranoid now because of this pandemic H1N1 virus) that God will cover him with HIS most precious blood and that  he will be okay soon.Thank God after a day of fever my nephew was fine. It was an ordin…

At bumuhos na lang.....

Every pinoy or pinay who came home or visit Philippines is feeling full of excitement and happiness right? Because we are back to our native land and we gonna see our families, relatives, friends and neighbors. We can eat the food that we crave for, we can eat plenty of fruits in our hearts delight and many more reason to be happy. I do experienced it all too like very excited and happy when the pilot will announced that we are just 5 minutes away from Manila or our plane is starting to descend ohhh my heart is like jumping in excitement and happiness. I remember the first time I went to visit my family in the Philippines (2005) I cried when I arrived in our house. Because I was thinking that my mother was there waiting for me but reality check she was gone long time ago. That makes me cry because I felt I missed her that much.This time my 5th visit, I found out that I already know how to handle my feeling I just didn't burst into tears everytime I arrived in our house. But I feel…

My trip back home..

Last Monday was my flight back home here in MI. Arrived NIAA 3:30am and found out there was a long line already. There were two lines one line for men and one line for women since there are only two security machine working.
>> Went to NW counter to checked in my luggages goodness I didn't over weight they only allowed 50lbs (what you can bring with 50lbs??????)
>> After checking in I went to another line which I had to pay (oh well everybody pay neither adult or kid) a whooping 750.00 pesosesoses!! Which for me that is awfully expensive goodness sake.
>> Then went to another line again for immigration purposes. After the immigration counter I proceeded to another security checked-up (again) where you had to take off your shoes,belts and put your carry on bags on the conveyor going through a security machine.
>> After that I proceeded to gate 12 but before that I had to undergo again another checked up (hehehe) where I had to take off my shoes and they checked …

I am HOME!!

Just arrived (safe and sound) from a month long vacation in the Philippines. Hope my body clock would immediately adjust the time here. For now I need a good sleep from 18hours flight. Gonna update soon.

Leaving tomorrow for Manila

Today is my last day here in my homecity, it's my pamangkins school days so I have to run some errand to do before I will depart tomorrow for Manila. Will arrive Manila around 9:00 am and as usual the place where I used to stay in Manila will pick me up at the domestic airport. Hope to find an internet cafe when I get in Manila or I will be online when I get in Michigan. And so a short hiatus for now take care everyone, happy weekend and God bless us all!!

SMILE

As we all knew our very own King of Pop died last Friday and yesterday was his burial and so his memorial. I choose not to watch the memorial because I knew that I would only cry a bucket full of tears. I love his music I like when he perform on stage his music was part of my teen-age years.
This morning I was watching memorable videos taken yesterday I was surprised Michael Jackson and I have the same favorite song the ever fading SMILE. I've known this song since I was in high school and from then on it became my favorite ever!! And I didn't know this music was written by Charlie Chaplin my favorite actor of all time.Here is the lyrics of the song:

Our weekend getaway

Last Saturday the weather was not too hot perfect to go for a swim. I promised my "pamangkins" that we are going swimming again but not at the beach but at a swimming pool. And it is only exclusive for cousins. We arrived at Bethany's swimming pool around 11:00am (just 10minutes motor ride from our house), the kids were so happy they had their swim suit ready they were about to plunge in the swimming pool when the guard told them to shower first haha. I cooked with the helped of our "angel at home", adobo, shrimp cooked in 7-up, fruit salad, kinilaw, spaghetti, fried chicken and some chichiriya. From morning till 7:00pm the kids were in the swimming pool playing around with their cousins. We adults teased them that we are going home but they don't listen to us they like to swim more so we allowed them until it was 7:00 pm. The place was nice when we get there we are the first so we got the best place and they gave us extra table for our food. They don't…

Thing I can't live without....

I just found out that there is a single thing here in Pinas that I can't live without and it is the fan, abaniko or paypay in Cebuano. Jeez it is too hot here that I can't leave the house without a fan. I thought that it is the umbrella that I can't live without but I am fine without an umbrella since when I am going to the city proper the buildings shadow will make a shade for us people walking by. But the "paypay" helps me feel relive when it is too hot at day and even at night. I bought this at the market for 15pesos it is worth for the money spend. -grin-
