...bakit kaya?

..hay!.. eto na naman ako, nag-iisip nang kung anu-ano. ...kaaasar... di na ako maka-move on. bakit kasi may mga taong ganun, kahit anong kaausap mo ay di naman nag-tatanda, tapos sa huli ikaw ang nasisira. Ilang beses na ito nangyari sa akin... mga ilan-ilan tao na rin ang gumawa ng ganito sa akin. Ok lang sana kung di ako apektado sa ginagawa nila, ang masama kahit wala akong ginagawa dahil sa gumawa sila ng di karapat-dapat pati tuloy ako/kami damay.
Kaasar talaga. Pasalamat nalang din ako... kahit mahirap napipigilan ko pa ang sarili ko... salamat sa Lord sa "self-control" na binibigay Niya sa akin.


...kaya dito ko nalang sasabihin ang nararamdaman ko.

A Book Review?

I accidentally applied for a book review post. I probably not hoping I'll get approve during that time because of so many job application I sent no one get back to me to say I got the job. But this morning I was surprised when I open my emails and saw in my inbox an email from the author saying I got approved and my compensation is getting the eBook.

Honestly... since I won't be getting a cash out of the work I felt not doing it. It's an eBook of 291 pages and reviewing the book means  I have to go through it page by page, but I have already given my word and they already have given me the password to get to view the book. Now I'm not liking the way I feelin. :(

Smiling Parents.. but not the baby :(

I admit I am a proud mommy I 'm not denying it co'z  I can't help it! 
My baby looks twice her real age in this picture. I can't believe how she'd  grown that big so quickly. She is a happy girl but she's not happy in this picture. Her get irritated because we were facing the sun when this photo  had been taken. But still.. though she look mad.. she still look adorable. :)

Is waiting

I'm suppressing my hunger because I'm waiting for hubby to come home for work/ministry. He left this morning but we agreed that he'll come home tonight with our dinner, but the thing is... I haven't eaten lunch that much because I did not cook rice and have bread instead. I also have not eaten snacks for there is nothing to eat that would satisfy my hunger here. So now... I'm crazy hungry that I think I can eat a whole bunch of fried chicken.

Goodness... this feeling is almost driving insane!

This was my first post

..July 23 '08 to be exact!

Finally....finally, we are now together...living together...helping each other. We never knew what its like to be together, because we are used to be just saying "hi, hello, good bye and see you later!"


It was almost every night before i went to bed,i prayed that the Lord would bring us together and never separatesagain...ever. It never came into our mind that having each other in work or ministry is so much fun and beyond. Ohh, yes! quarrels, misunderstanding comes our way... but being together helps, to sort it out. Married life is fun... so much fun... 



our life before....
I remember the time when I was brought by a friend to a church to attend a youth fellowship and there I met a lot of other young people. Yet, I don'tknow if I ever saw him there. But, after that i found myself phoning their home asking for his whereabouts because i was given the task to follow-up the youth through phone. Then eventually I became a youth leader and the more that i do the youth pastoral care... and still it never came to me that someday i would be marrying him.

Then...there came this one day that seems our friends are soo busy and there's none but the two of us left. Our long or probably not that long compare to others love story begun.

We pass through a lot of testing (people from the church....leaders... friends...families.) and a lot of separations too. When our leaders found out that we are in a relationship they sent him to one of our outreach church 3-4hrs drive from Makati and we only see each other once a month and he'd been there for three months. After the period of time he was sent away some our leaders was planning to send him to that place again for good...and it was terrifying to us. But, we appeal to the Lord....and He came to our rescue but after awhile God sent him to Luton, England instead for four long months... but this one is not that hard (nor easy too) because we already have a covenant with the Lord.

Then when he came back from England, we formalized our engagement and the Lord again told us to wait for two more years before getting married. I could still remember my conversation with the Lord about our wedding, way back summer 2005. I was walking along arellano st. in Palanan heading back to our missions house from my ministry area, asking the Lord if it is okay with Him if I will get married that same year or the succeeding year...I could still remember very clearly what the Lord told me about it. He said; it's okay if you really want to...go ahead I will still bless youBut..., don'texpect that the things you wish and hope for will happen. It would just come if you wait. Then,I have moments of silence...and decided to wait upon His perfect and beautiful time instead amidst of kindabroken heart. But I really and surely knew in my heart that I am very right with my decision. And two years after or to be exact on June sixth two thousand and eight with the full blessings of the Lord we get married at Casa Blanca, IntramurosManila. We have no enough money for this very beautiful day of our life, but God provided us with everything.

The things as well as the friends we hope for to be there on our wedding indeed came. We were so happy and blessed. But we give God the glory and honor, and we also give thanks to all our friends who helped us through. May God bless them as well more than they have ask for or imagine.

My family :)

This picture was taken just a few hours back when we spent time with our baby. We try to take a good picture of us three, but with the squirming baby nothing really look good, almost everything was blurry. Good thing though was we kept on trying. So... here we come... all smiling but my baby.

One year and more (motorbike)

Our motorbike is more than a year now and a little little trouble is coming out and in fact when brought hubby brought it to the shop for check-up the guy who check it up told him that trouble would indeed coming out because it's already a little old. Hubby felt sad of course because this motorbike feels like his first baby and seeing it broken broke his heart as well. You can see by the picture below how he takes picture of it, section by section. He is indeed in love with this precious motorbike of his.

Getting a good shave (by choosing a good razor blades)

Lifestyle is change now after this two months old baby came to our life and changes everything. I do not worry about at least smoothing myself up because kissing my wife with an unshaved moustache is never been an issue with her.  Sometimes I don’t even notice that since I forgot  to shave I look like a different  person until someone like my mom would tell to clean myself up, not that I am dirty or something, it’s just all about my beardy.

Now that we have our baby life changes.. in a good way. I need to shave every other day so that I can kiss my girl. And though I don’t feel like doing it, but I need to if I want my face close to her. Ooh.. babies has this unintentional power to manipulate and hypnotized their parents and I think even the toughest person on this earth will be soften with babies charms.

Here are some tips though in having a soft clean after shave:
·         Choosing a  good razor blades is one factor to have a good shave. A good shaver can make a perfect shave.
·         Applying a shaving cream before and after shave could also help make a perfect shave.
·         Make sure that you always wet your face (for males) and legs (for women) to prevent  skin irritation.
·         Choose also a good badger shaving brush. You used use a shaving brush to spread the cream rather using your finger.
·         You can apply a pre-shave oil  as well. It soften the beard for shaving.
·         Use a face scrub or  shaving soap when you don’t feel like using a cream, but don’t shave with none of either of the two.

something to think about


The Poem

I knelt to pray but not for long,I had too much to do.I had to hurry and get to workFor bills would soon be due.So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,And jumped up off my knees.My Christian duty was now doneMy soul could rest at ease.....All day long I had no timeTo spread a word of cheerNo time to speak of Christ to friends,They'd laugh a at me I'd fear.No time, no time, too much to do,That was my constant cry,No time to give to souls in needBut at last the time, the time to dieI went before the Lord,I came, I stood with downcast eyes.For in his hands God! Held a book;It was the book of life.God looked into his book and said"Your name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down...
                                                              But never found the time"

2 Chronicles 1

2Ch 1:1  Solomon son of David established himself firmly over his kingdom, for the LORD his God was with him and made him exceedingly great.
2Ch 1:2  Then Solomon spoke to all Israel--to the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds, to the judges and to all the leaders in Israel, the heads of families--
2Ch 1:3  and Solomon and the whole assembly went to the high place at Gibeon, for God's Tent of Meeting was there, which Moses the Lord's servant had made in the desert.
2Ch 1:4  Now David had brought up the ark of God from Kiriath Jearim to the place he had prepared for it, because he had pitched a tent for it in Jerusalem.
2Ch 1:5  But the bronze altar that Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, had made was in Gibeon in front of the tabernacle of the LORD; so Solomon and the assembly inquired of him there.
2Ch 1:6  Solomon went up to the bronze altar before the LORD in the Tent of Meeting and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it.
2Ch 1:7  That night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, "Ask for whatever you want me to give you."
2Ch 1:8  Solomon answered God, "You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place.
2Ch 1:9  Now, LORD God, let your promise to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth.
2Ch 1:10  Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?"
2Ch 1:11  God said to Solomon, "Since this is your heart's desire and you have not asked for wealth, riches or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king,
2Ch 1:12  therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, riches and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have."
2Ch 1:13  Then Solomon went to Jerusalem from the high place at Gibeon, from before the Tent of Meeting. And he reigned over Israel.
2Ch 1:14  Solomon accumulated chariots and horses; he had fourteen hundred chariots and twelve thousand horses, which he kept in the chariot cities and also with him in Jerusalem.
2Ch 1:15  The king made silver and gold as common in Jerusalem as stones, and cedar as plentiful as sycamore-fig trees in the foothills.
2Ch 1:16  Solomon's horses were imported from Egypt and from Kue --the royal merchants purchased them from Kue.
2Ch 1:17  They imported a chariot from Egypt for six hundred shekels of silver, and a horse for a hundred and fifty. They also exported them to all the kings of the Hittites and of the Arameans.

I will never be the same (Hillsong)

I will never be the same again,
I can never return, I've closed the door.
I will walk apart, I'll run the race
And I will never be the same again.

I will never be the same again,
I can never return, I've closed the door.
I will walk apart, I'll run the race
And I will never be the same again.

Fall like fire, soak like rain,
Flow like mighty waters, again and again.
Sweep away the darkness, burn away the chaff,
And let a flame burn to glorify Your name.

There are higher heights, there are deeper seas,
Whatever you need to do, Lord do in me.
The Glory of God fills my life,
And I will never be the same again.

Fall like fire, soak like rain,
Flow like mighty waters, again and again.
Sweep aways the darkness, burn away the chaff
And let a flame burn to glorify Your name.

Fall like fire, soak like rain,
Flow like mighty waters, again and again.
Sweep away the darkness, burn away the chaff,
And let a flame burn to glorify Your name.

I will never be the same again,
I can never return, I've closed the door.
I will walk the path, I will run the race
And I will never be the same again.
And I will never be the same again.
And I will never be the same again.

Nakaka.... ang maging ina

Sa totoo lang  dalawang linggo mahigit na kaming walang tulog o puyat ng asawa ko dahil sa pagbabantay sa aming anak na si Ziah.

Nakakagulat at nakakabigla ang mga pangyayari... pero naniniwala kami na ito ay kaoloban ng ating Poong Maykapal na Siyang may takda ng lahat ng bagay.

Nakakapuyat ang maging magulang: dahil huli ka na nga matutulog dahil aasikasuhin mo ang kakailanganin ng anak mo at ikaw/kayo pa ay pagising-gising para magpalit ng diaper kung ito ay puno ng ihi at pupu at mag timpla ng gatas sa tuwing siya ay nagugutom.

Nakakangalay at nakakangawit din sa kakakarga sa kanya sa tuwing siya ay umiiyak na di mo naman alam kung bakit. Bibigyan mo ng gatas ay ayaw naman dedein, kakargahin mo at isasayaw-sayaw pero ayaw pa rin tumahan sa di malamang dahilan.

...at higit sa lahat...

nakakapagbigay ng di maipaliwanag na ligaya ang magkaroon ng Ziah sa buhay at bahay namin. Noon nananalangin kaming mag-asawa na bigyan na kami ng Diyos ng isang anak at di namin inisip na sa ganitong pamamaraan Niya kami pagkakalooban. Oo, may plano kami pero mas higit na maganda ang plano ng Diyos di lang sa aming buhay maging sa batang ibigay Niya sa amin.

Nagpapasalamat kami dahil pinili kami ng Diyos na pagkatiwalaan upang alagaan ang munting prinsesa.

My Precious Nicole

Nicole is my friends eldest  and she is now going to school. She told me to buy her some school stuff for she's going to school this school year.
She dressed up like a model sometimes, and change clothes and accessories like  a model does. See here earrings?.. she likes that a lot!

Though she's naughty sometimes, she still makes me smiles :)

Precious Friend

I've been wanting to see her, the only problem is she's thousand of miles away from me.
Though I have seen her last year, but seems it wasn't enough.
I wish that she's only an hour away from me :(

Moments with the Cambodian Monks

I have the opportunity with some moments with the Cambodian Monks. These religious Buddhist  people are being highly respected by their Buddhist community of believers. It's not that I am a fan of them or anything because I took picture with them, in fact we are with different faith. This is just part of a memory I have when I went to Siem Reap Cambodia. 

A thing that I can show or tell with my kids someday.

Band Practice

I just saw that he needs to go to our church more often this time for band practice since our church anniversary is coming soon and also they need to practice more for a dream album recording. Hopefully this time this dream album would come to pass.

I had only one concern though when he needs to go for band practice coz I'll be  left all alone in our home again. I just hope that during those times of aloneness my friend Jiji would be available for me. I just realize this time that I need my girl friends close to me.

My Friends are also my precious

I was looking at an old picture just a while ago and it made look back and reminisce. Indeed: pictures shows great  frozen memories that make us wish we have time machine so that we can go back in the old times. But, things like that just happens in movies and would never be in real life.  A second ago would forever be a history.

Every single thing would change, and so do friends. When we were younger, we have close friends that we thought we'll die if we're separated. Then we get older and our priorities and views change and even the people we want to be with change as well. We don't want to do anything with our old friends, we don't even want to see them.

But with times like this, when we're all alone and staring at old pictures, there's something in our hearts that long to see our old buddies. Longing to make things right and wished we do the right thing with them.

Friends are more than gold, they're very precious. Let's keep them! :)

Attitude

What is our attitude when something we really would like to have is already at hand? Most of us we treat as the most precious thing ever that we posses. But as for me, when I got  the that thing my passion for it is not that intense unlike when I don't have.

I know someone though that when he has something new, no one could touch it but him.

Dog precious

This is griffin my in-laws dog. It's funny how they love this dog to the point that my mom-in-law would rather give her portion of  food to griffin even if it means that she don't need to it anymore, she just don't care as long as  griffin could have his meal.

I hope you would not get me wrong because I myself love dogs, but I want them to be practical as well. if they do have loads of food to feed everybody including griffin then I don't have any issues with that, but having griffin there and let my mom not eat meal is another thing (something that would bugs me whenever they would come to  our house and eat our food then go home with their purposely left over food to give to the dog.) Why not return the dog then to its owner and tell her that they can't take care of the poor dog rather than keeping it and sacrifice everybody.

My new baby: net book

I have a brand new netbook that I received from a generous friend. I was actually planning to pay for this but God knows that I need my money for other important stuff and need this netbook too. So the touches the heart of the person who bought this for me to give it to me for free.

I was so glad (only God knows how) when this was handed over to me. God is really great!

My guitar

I played in a band as a lead guitar, and I like doing it a lot,  most specially when friends would tell me that I am a good lead guitar player. It really encourage to do more practising and really do good on stage.

I'm  hoping that I'll be able to do more and offer it to my most precious one Jesus!

Here's me and my precious guitar:
