End of the year.

Several things I want to share but will settle saying few of those.

First, thank God for another year. It’s been very challenging for me, at work, in the ministry, even in our family. Yet the Lord is faithful. All praises to Him!

We had a Christmas party at church last Sunday. Each one was given a badge that says: The Lord’s Servant 2005. We’re asked to give it to whom we thought was deserving of the title. I got mine. Thanks!

Looking back, there are so many things that happened in my life this year. And so many things to be grateful about too. I met new friends and was able to strengthen the old ones. There are moments when I felt so alone, yet the Lord sent people to cheer me up. There were countless times I wished my mom was beside me, but the Lord reminded me His love is more than enough. My work had been so pressing, but God provides strength and wisdom. And the reward afterwards, of course. When I felt like giving up, He gave reasons to walk the extra mile. Huh, there are just too many to single them out; I had to put it in general.

I may not update until January so I got to give my greetings to all:

Kaylangan ko ng lunas.

Dapat sana ginagawa ko na ngayon yung outline for Friday, pero talagang masakit ang tiyan ko. Heto na naman: lamig. Isang oras na lang ang hinihintay ko at uuwi na talaga ko. Masakit. Baka sakali mawala kung nakahiga ako, or mabawasan man lang.

Lord, Help!

Prayer request

I am feeling sick today. There's something wrong with my system. My stomach won't rest. I feel like throwing up every minute. This is really giving me a hard time.

Still has to work on the message for Friday. And the powerpoint, of course. How can I if this tummy won't stop?

Lord, help me. Heal me, please. By the Blood of Jesus. Amen.

Thank God It's Friday!

This is so true. Glad it's end of the week. Thank God for today.

First of all, I can be home! Will treat my siblings and my Dad to a concert tonight! Hahaha!

Also, the report is done. Final output will be passed today. Ain't that the most wonderful news this week? *can't hide the big grin*

Rest. Yes. Looking forward to a lot of it this weekend. Oh, and will be going to my friend's son's first birthday party on Sunday. Just can't imagine she's already a mom. I can still remember us in pigtails back in high school! Anyhow, I'm happy for her and her family.

Wishing you all a great weekend and a restful one, too.

Good news!

Hey everybody!

I want you to know that …I FINISHED THE REPORT!
(dance, dance, dance!)

Thank God!

Now I wanna sleep. I'll start tonight!


Tuesday, December 06, 2005


I was giving both left and right
Trying to beat the sun
Walking a thin line
Minding the time
Noting all possible options
Keeping, listing, choosing
All sorts.

There’s still time.
But I’m tired.

Clock is ticking
I need to.
I have to.
I must.
I can't afford to fail.

I’m afraid I’m lost.
I hope not.

Awesome Sunday!

There's no place like home. ^.^

As you know, I had to stay at work until Saturday. I got home around 7:30 in the evening, missed practice at church, the leadership training, and prayer meeting. It made me feel empty. Anyhow, dinner with the family on a Saturday is something you would never want to miss.

Sunday Service starts at seven in the morning. God is awesome. The worship was good. I need something like that after this tight week. After a few announcements we closed around 9:30 AM. Me, my sisters and my nieces, got ourselves some turon, lumpiang toge, and okoy for snack. Haha! Talk about breakfast! Yum yum!

When I got home, I was just so tired I climbed up in my room and dropped dead on my bed. Had to set the alarm at 1:07 PM (my clock is 56 minutes ahead of the standard time!). Missed lunch with the family, which I certainly should've not done, but just can't. I heard my sister called me, saw I set the alarm, and simply let me sleep. They understood how tiring the week had been for me.

I was not up until 1:13 PM. Had to take a quick lunch then head my way to Red's place. I went to their house for a little fellowship we planned some time ago. Ate Marie and my sister Jai came along. Red is a registered Nurse and now teaching in the University. He's my co-worker in the body ministry and so is Ate Marie. They are my best pals in the core team.

Red prepared some hot cakes, cola, and a list of songs. Now we’re talking. He had set up the “magic sing” and had our turn with the microphone. That was the funniest thing ever! He warned us that the scoring system was accurate. My turn, I got an embarrassing 59 per cent! Ate Marie, 66 and Red, 71. I said something’s wrong with that scoring system! Red’s voice was plain terrible. He should rather preach. LOL. Another Round: I got 71, Ate Marie, 69 and Red (drums roll) 22! LOL. Now, I’m more convinced the thing was working perfectly. Hahaha!

We sang a couple more before leaving. And for the record, I thought the lowest score ever made was 22. To our surprise, Ate Marie’s last song gave out a mind-boggling 16 per cent! Would you believe that! That was totally outrageous! That’s what you get when you made to sing a preacher, a dancer, and a youth leader! Hahaha!

I hurried home for the year-end planning at church. After tackling several matters, the meeting was over. And finally, my last meeting for the day. Got to be at the MYF office by 5:30 PM. I came at 5:40 and the meeting did not start until 5:45. There’s Red and Ate Marie too, with the rest of the core team. Pastor Mark just came home after going to the United States. We studied a little Youth Guide made by Richard Crisco (might post this some time here). Then, we talked about the Nights of Obsession on Friday night, the coming outreach, and the upcoming conference. There are still so many things to accomplish. We really need prayers. We had snacks after the meeting, a little fellowship with one another and I went home with a long day.

I was too tired to eat dinner. The night wasn’t over without bedroom chats with my siblings. Satisfied, we went off to Fantasy World (Zzzzzzzzzzzzz).

I thought the fun ended that night but this morning was simply humongous blast. On the bus station, you’d never believe whom I saw! My favorite cousin! I missed him so much! He’s been away for so long and I only see him at least once a year. I was hoping to see him on Christmas but I saw him today. It made my day. I love him like a brother –we practically spent our childhood together. At times, growing up cause us to miss so many people.

That short weekend was stretched to very fun-filled, memorable day. I almost forgot all my angst the previous week. Now, I know God has planned a better week ahead of me.

A happy Monday to all!

Next Level

Still not finish with the report. Now comes the harder part: The Next Level. Need to put this into writing....

I wanna go home.


While the sun now rested in the West, it's brightly shone here in the East. It's a Saturday. I'm supposed to be home with my family yet me and my good friend are here in the office, trying to finish a report that has troubled us in the last few days. Yes, it cost us to wake up too early and stay up late at night. So today, Lord help us, we hope to finish.

Perhaps this is the busiest month for me. I think so. To start with a working Saturday is the cue. Haha! I can't even find time to "rest" inspite the holidays coming. To begin with, my fulltime work is flooded with deadlines. Plus, my ministry life is overflowing. I have weekly meetings on Sundays in the youth ministry, weekly fellowships with my youth group at church Sunday afternoon, of course, my worship ministry in church, our upcoming planning for 2006, Training every Mondays for the conference, teaching on the Nights of Obsession, the week-long youth conference right after Christmas, our "pilgrimage" to Cavite, and so forth. When I think about it, I wonder how I'll be able to get through. Then I remember, "My God shall supply all my needs, may it be strength or wisdom or resource." He's been faithful enough to sustain me in all my endeavors. Afterall, my life testimony is "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me", and He really does. I just want to thank the Lord for the privilege I have being able to serve Him this way. It's a blessing to serve. Praise the Lord.

Back to business. Pray that I will do all these with efficiency and faithfulness. Thank God.

A Tale from the East

Yes, this is the title of my blog. How come? Basically because I’m from the East side of the world; somewhere in the South East Asian region. A tale, since it’s my story and stories of life and my everyday endeavors. Also, because I’m a story-teller and I love tales, no matter how out-of-this-world it might be.

Lastly, I like the sound of it altogether. And so the world would know....^^

YAY it's fixed!

I did it!
Haha! I figured out how to make the sidebar come up! Pwew!

Well, it is at the expense of one of my entries, though. I had to delete the entry I made last Nov 21. Anyhow, it made this look better, so adios!

I feel so accomplished today. Thanks to all those who tried to help. I sincerely appreciate. Thank you. God bless you.

Thanks, Ma’am.

Saying sorry can spare from a marred relationship. Thank God He didn’t let that happen between us. Not more than an hour after the previous post, things went out well. I said sorry and she took it well. She didn’t even expect me to be, just a reminder on her part. But I insisted and it made a world difference. We ate lunch together and had a great time.

Thank you Lord for making all things work out for good. I learned my lesson.

Am sorry

Though it is not all me to blame still, I’m responsible for the action. I’m sorry.
I should have been wiser in my judgment. Was just trying to help.
I’m sorry Ma’am.

Simply Amazing!

…that I can communicate with another person on the other side of the planet without leaving my chair.

No matter how much I understand the power of technology, it conspicuously leaves me in great wonder.

Naah, just being me.

Thursday, November 24, 2005

What’s wrong?

I have been wondering how I can make the side bar on this page go up. I made a reply on the comment on my previous post and accidentally made double posts. I deleted the other one and since then the sidebar went down. Does anybody know what to do? Please help! I tried republishing the entire blog thinking it will work but nada! Oh well..

Hope it gets fixed soon..

A tiring day

Yes, I am so tired. I want to lie on my bed and stretch a little. Maybe take a nap.

At last, I'm done with one report. There are several others on the row. Lord, give me the strength and wisdom. And patience. Had to rush to the office this morning for the presentation of preliminary reports of the consultants of the project. When I got down from the meeting, I found a memo on my table from the Dean's office saying I'm a member of the Christmas Party Committee for the college. Great! Now what am I going to do? I'm not good at stuffs for social activities like this. Help!

Well, I got no choice. Hope the rest of the Committee mems will be creative enough... my fear: I'm the youngest in the group and probably (no, please!) the one they'll charge to find a theme and draft the program! Waaah!

Now need to finish transcribing the recommendations on the meeting. I hardly heard the presentation. I have poor notes now compared last time. That means, got to rely on the audio tape. I hope to finish soon. I must.

Looking forward to going to bed tonight.

It’s Friday! Time to go home…
I have a lot of activities waiting for me this weekend…

Quote from my twin (friend):

It is the heart that makes a woman pretty. She is beautiful according to what she is, not according to what she has. Hello to one of the prettiest woman I know.”

That’s lovely. Thanks Arlyn.

Bye everyone. Hope you enjoy your weekend! See you! =D

Thursday, November 17, 2005


Came to the office at 6:45 this morning. But I got inside only at 7AM. It’s 2PM and I’ve been sitting here, facing my computer, for the last six hours. I feel guilty being sleepy but that’s the truth. My body’s tired. I went home (in the province) last night and had to leave at dawn going back to make sure I catch up on time for work. Now, I had to bear the consequence of lacking rest. Huh….

It’s a gloomy sky outside (which adds to the sleepy state). My window is overlooking the trees and lawn. It’s relaxing to stare at them. At least, to lessen the pressure at work.

Most of the “Mariposa” (big butterflies) in the atrium had left. There are some which are still inside their cocoon. A few others hang on the leaves and branches of the Santol tree. It’s cute to see them wiggling/shaking their cocoons trying to come out. I can imagine a theme song for this, “I’m coming out! I want the world to see….”

Time will pass quickly. Before I know it, it’s time to go. I have to finish my work. There are still a lot to produce…it’s mind boggling! I wish I’ll have a restful night ahead of me.

Things of note:

Tonight, MMK--Maalaala Mo Kaya (Do You Recall) will air a special story on one of the biggest Qs on Philippine TV today: Sino si Max? (Who's Max?). It's about the name being used by one of the biggest Restaurants in the country--Max's (Fried Chicken). How did they come up with the name? I got the feeling it's not really the owner's name. My guess is, it's an employee, maybe the chef, as i heard my brother say once. Anyhow, I marked the calendar--November 17, to watch out for the revelation.

Also, it's Sir Vicmar's birthday. We love him. He's been a very good thesis adviser and mentor to us back in college. Happy birthday Sir!

Got to be in the staff training by 6pm... time to go!

Friday, November 11, 2005

Another weekend approaching…

Retire from work. Head for home. Go to church. Disciple the youth. Meet the core. Ahh…so much to do!

Enjoy time with my father and siblings….Thank God it’s Friday.

Have a great time every one!


I had the best message received last night. It made my day. Just a single word but meant a lot. DACO. That’s my father’s name. He made his first text message ever! Finally, after so long! Ha ha ha …. He belongs to the primeval world. LOL.

Grabe, Tay, marunong nang mag-text! Bwahaha! LOL.

Galing mo, Tay!

today's reflection

James 2:22
"Do you not see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?"

How many times have I been guilty of this? No matter what excuse is made, we are all being watched by the world around. 'Walk the faith' as been said in the little book. Every believer should.

May I claim victory everyday!

Sshh...secret identity!

I realize the name Pinay has [now] become my [secret] identity. It’s not my real name, but a slang term short for Filipina. Nonetheless, Pinay had managed to become ‘me’ more and more each day. Anyway, I’m quite comfortable with it. I guess that’s what I get from using a pseudonym—religiously.

Mayumi. Marangal. Mapagkalinga. Ganyan ang Pilipina.

If ever I use another name, that would definitely be Mayumi. But I’m settled with Pinay.

Wonder what the itals above stand for? Let’s see. Here’s what’s on-top-of-my-head-at-the-moment translation:

Meek. Dignified. Caring. Filipina nature.

Haha! My friends will roar in laughter when they learn about this page… it’s secret anyway. ^-^

I enjoy blogging so far.


Now, where did that clock on this page go? It's supposed to be right below the Archives Section. What happened? Vanished? Hmmm....

November 7th

Hehe…have missed updating here for awhile…
After so many attempts, my computer is finally working…cost me to remove a few programs. Yet again, there’s another problem: I cannot connect to the server! LAN is said to be unplugged. I checked the connections but still, it just won’t work. This computer is really bugging me.
I enjoyed another long, fun Sunday at church. The worship was blissful and umm… I led the Bible Study. The theme for this month is “the end of days” which led me to tackle on Christ’s Second Coming. Pretty tough subject to undertake. I based my texts in the books of Matthew, Second Peter, and John. Basically, we studied Matthew Chapter 24.

Sunday afternoon, one my churchmates, Ronn, [whom I always referred to as ‘youngest’ --he’s a very shy young man] led the Bible study in the youth fellowship. His subject dealt on anger & anger management. Very practical. We then shared personal experiences/situations that triggered this emotion. That afternoon was fruitful and I see that everyone should be reminded how to behave during such times. Plus, these kids made me tell my high school tale with my bestfriend, when I was ‘victimized in a set-up’. They were all wide-eyed as I recall the experience. But the lesson is clear; they should check their motives and let God deal on the matter. He is a Just God anyway.

At the later hour of the day, I got to enjoy a wonderful and plainly fun time with the little children nearby church. We played the school-set-up-type enacting a usual flag ceremony scenario. They are lovely! Those tiny kids (as young as two years old!) singing the anthem was just overwhelming. We then had a few games (can’t believe these children can actually organize themselves when it comes to game dynamics!) until almost pass 6PM. Even the elders and youth in church did not spare the fun going on among the kids.

It was a great time. I can almost forget the needle marks on my arms I suffered the other day from another vaccine schedule.



The following entries are long overdue. I fail to find time posting them. [or should I manipulate the dates, instead?...hehehe]

[titles suggest the dates, anyway];P

Can’t wait…

…to finish calculating grades.
…to watch ChunHyang (could it be the ending already??).
…to finally call it a day.
…to sleep.
…to go home for the weekend and the holidays.
…to go to church and recharge.

Got to remember the third session for Rabipur on Sunday…Ohhh, needles again! >.<

Dog bite hurts...

Indeed. Huhu…I got one in my thigh last Saturday night.

My cousin gave birth to her second child. The baby is such a cutie—a big, healthy baby girl. Me and my sis-in-law went for a visit. Leaving, a few meters from my cousins’, the dog suddenly showed up, without even a single bark to warn us. It simply bit me. Well, I would have chosen to be the victim since my sis-in-law is pregnant—thus vaccines would be perilous to both mother and child.

Now, I have to bear this pain. It hurts whenever the wound is bumped. Really ouch!

I am scheduled to have a few more shots in the coming days…Oh, I don’t like needles!

Thank God for His healing...

Nights of Obsession

And so, Friday night came. After the worship, Pastor Mark signaled that it’s time to take the floor. I did my part and thank God I had a positive reaction from my audience.

I’d say I got a very attentive crowd. The message was fluidly delivered and I think I hit the mark. To God be all glory!

Before I closed, I shared a personal testimony. The reaction was overwhelming! Haha! Sis. Arlene…love life??...incomprehensible! They were all wondering who the person was…to their surprise it’s….[I’ll keep that to myself]. XP

Sunday night, we had the assessment of the service. They were all teasing me calling me Joyce Meyers. Pastor Mark said my outline was like I’ve been preaching for 20 years! Haha! But they are all commending the message. Praise God.

Psalms 37:4
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give the desires of your heart.

Friday, October 21, 2005

Now na!

Help me, Lord.

Thursday, October 20, 2005

Natapos ko rin…At last!

Finally, I have sent a copy of my powerpoint presentation for tomorrow to Pastor Mark. Now what I need to do is mastery of the subject. Haay…

It’s a great privilege to be given an opportunity to speak to young people; this is the first time I get to teach. Hindi ako presider ngayon, ako na yung teacher. Which is a lot different. I would really need more prayers for tomorrow.

I forgot to include a poster in the slides. Sayang! Should I put it in acetate, anyway? Nakakahinayang naman.

Trivial pero I don’t know what to wear for the occasion. Syempre I should look presentable naman but not compromising comfort. No way. Ano kaya? Hmm….

Ayan na, inaantok na naman ako. Dami kasi nakain from Kamay-Kainan. Blow-out ni Mam Dol. Haaah, me-me na (lullaby)

Bukas na. I offer this to You, Lord.

Wednesday, October 19, 2005


Thank God!

I’m almost done with my subject. Just the powerpoint which I will work on tonight and finalize tomorrow morning. I really need to send a copy to Pastor Mark. He sent me a message today saying he really needs it ASAP. I know. Oh Lord, thank You; I’m almost through. Just a little more polishing.

Now, I really need prayers. I will have to speak in front of more or less 200 young people on Friday. I pray that God would cover me the whole time. Nothing of me and all of God. Please pray for me.

What’s the topic? RESPONSIBILITY. The theme would be 1 Timothy 4:12. It has a personal ‘call’ on me; dwelling in this topic. I’ll post an entry on this some time soon.

Right now, I have to study and review. Send the fire, Lord.

Jesus, I trust in You. Amen.

Tuesday, October 18, 2005


I don’t want to entertain the idea that I’m cramming my preparation for the exhortation on Friday. I may have been so lax in the past days but actually, I’ve been occupied by a lot of things. I know I should have prepared earlier; this week should be the mastery period alas, that’s not the case. Oh, I have to finish it before Thursday!

I have a couple of topics in mind, but I still have to check on the relevance to the event. I always believe that a personal testimony is effective; a sense of ownership and tangible example would make the message easier to grasp. Should I do so? I will definitely decide tonight—I have to!

Pastor Mark is expecting my text this week to come up with the powerpoint presentation. I think I will just make one for myself and email it to him before Friday.

To date, the average attendance of “Nights of Obsessions” is around 200. This Friday will be the third night. Lord, let Your blood cover me; hide me behind Your cross. I pray that Your Spirit move amongst the young people and Your Presence be felt amidst us. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The usual…unusual weekend

Saturday was quite ordinary, only that my ate is not home until almost 8pm which made the day incomplete. Dinner, the world’s back to normal.

I came home with only my father and my youngest sis around. Well, technically that’s the case since my other sis is on her way to school for an exam. So I decided to cook my ‘specialty’ so to speak, since my friends and housemates commend my recipe. I asked Nene to buy me the ingredients and so the cooking came to pass.

Lunch. Nobody seemed to notice my dish. Well, at least my youngest sis dared to comment. “OK lang.”

Bale, dinner na namin yun nakain. Everybody’s home and I’m really excited to see their reactions. Mantakin mo, sabihin ba naman, “What’s this, cornstarch? How does it supposed to taste? It’s practical tasteless.” Great! Thanks a lot. My friends are addicted to this dish and now, my family—my beloved home—says they better not eat it. Oh yeah, I will not cook again! *sniff*

Well, Sunday is the most exciting day of all. Of course, it’s Church day! I love going to church, especially giving praises to the Mighty God. He’s a wonderful and loving Father. Thank you, Jesus.

At the youth fellowship, Pastor Aries led the exhortation for us. He asked me if he could share during our meeting to talk about a practical topic. He shared about responsibility or rather, how we are expected to be responsible persons. The discussion dealt mainly on students. Surprisingly, he mentioned about ‘us’ as examples. How me and my siblings made it to go on despite our father’s grave accident.

That life story can’t be contained in this single entry. But again, I can’t help but shed some tears as he was telling my group of our hard times. They should learn from us and see how privileged they are now. I wouldn’t want anyone to have the same ‘hardships’ we’ve had just to finish our degrees.

Thank God because that instance made me reminded of God’s blessing to me and my family. He’s been so good to us—allowing us to stand that storm. Thank God for His mercy.

I missed Sunday’s dinner—fell asleep, but am happy anyway. Tonight, I think I’ll have a great time watching SSCH. Haha! I can’t wait for this episode.

Women and Gender Issue

I had no idea what CEDAW stands for. I am almost completely lost listening to the presentations of all the presenters and speakers in the seminar. At least I learned relatively a few after the end of the first day. CEDAW is actually, Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women.
I was asked by my Director to represent the Center in a two-day seminar on the said issue. We have not grounded on the topic and my boss is interested to pursue this. She said I will be the Center’s focal person as we embark on this field. Pwew!

And so everybody’s talking about the rights of women and other concerns alike. Representation from the three branches of the government and in the non-government sector completes the assembly. I happened to made ‘friends’ with the director of the Local Government Academy. Going home, she drove me back here in the office. Haha! Salamat po!

The issue on women’s rights, violence against women, gender inequality, etc., I believe, boils down to the issue of respect. Abuse and discrimination are manifestations of disrespect and inability to see the other person as equal. EQUALITY, alright. It’s a broad issue; I agree. I feel privileged to be a part of this few people who were consulted to address the concern.

It’s great news that God is a just and loving God. People may not gain the kind of respect they ever wanted but in the eyes of the Lord we ARE equal. I can settle with that. This equality in turn subjects us to specific tasks and duties we are designed to make. Our Maker is a genius Creator and we all are formed according to His blueprint. Let’s work accordingly.

Looking forward to tomorrow’s sessions. I hope I get a better grasp of the subject.

Room 206

It’s my first time to eat [not-the-business-type] lunch with [most of] my officemates. Wala lang, since everybody’s officially in the same room now, eating together is possible. It was though we’ve been regular lunchmates. Nakakaaliw din ang mga kwentuhan.

Still working on these papers and documentations. Medyo marami talaga and time-bound. I hope to finish at least one today. Haay….

I’m currently transferring all my files in this computer. Let’s see, umh… almost an hour to go and it’s all placed here. Tagal, I started almost before ten and what time is it now??

I noticed that time slips fast in this room. Honestly, it’s like you just move a little away from your computer and next thing you know, an hour was over. I have to keep up to be productive!

I still can’t find those batteries. I know I put them in my drawer last Friday but looking for it yesterday, it’s gone. Where could it be??

Will be going home after work. Nobody’s staying in KNL tonight. Dear Lord, keep our house safe.

Last, our office has a little secret. As in, SIKRETONG MALUPIT.

Monday, October 10, 2005



Yes, I'm officially transferred in the adjacent office. I'm gonna miss 205 for sure, though it's a door away. I still have a lot of adjustments to make, esp. with this computer. Haay, things are a little different in here.

The dreaded Monday report is over. Haha! We didn't actually presented the report, but still I managed to come up with the papers. I thought I ain't gonna finish! Imagine, it took away my entire weekend, reading the floor deliberation in Congress. Goodness! Glad it's a little pressure now.

Maybe, will make a better updating when time is more generous. We are load (to the nth exponential term) with this hectic-time-bounded study report before the year ends. That will really take our time and no more lax moments...

7 October 2005

Here I am. In a cold room of NCPAG 301. A proctor for the final exams of PA students. I missed breakfast today and I’m starving. Too bad I can only eat after the next class is done with the test [LUNCH!].

PA 121 – 31 exam sheets
Note: May tatlong pasaway dito; ayaw pang mag-pass.

10:30 AM – the next class took the test.

Romero, Laurie –121-A: Took the exam at 10:43 AM; came to UP at 9:30 from Bulacan

11:00 AM Talagang gutom na ako! Sayang wala dito yung cel, di ko tuloy ma-text si Aidz na dalan man lang ako ng food. I’m starving! Sayang ang hopia baka…. =(
One more hour to go….

15 more minutes and the exam is over. HOPEFULLY. Please no more extensions….I might pass out. Only three students had turned in their papers so far. This exam is very comprehensive, if I may say so.

Most of the students don’t show sign of being through with the test. Looks like I will have to give them a grace period. 10 MINUTES. Please not more than that or else I’ll get hyper-acidity. Oh well, it’s 12 noon alright.

Mas maraming pasaway sa class na ito. 12:15 na! Kinakain na ng malalaking bituka ko ang mga small intestines ko.

Ayaw ko na! Pag hindi pa sila nagpasa by 12:20, kanila ang mga blue books nila. Hmp. Grabe na ito!

Medyo disturbed ako ngayon.

Must read --> Article on Filipinas. I share the same sentiments.

6 Oct 2005 || Masyado na yata akong affected ng Sassy Girl Chun-Hyang. Aba, bothered talaga ako knowing that CH will be deprived of a university education simply because of misunderstanding! I think that’s the worst thing you can do to someone who’s poured her life to achieve a decent education! [missed it --because somebody else screwed up.] Wawa naman siya. Shattered siguro ako if that ever happens to me ::WAG PO:: Deserving pa naman siya of all people to be in that school. ::HUHU:: Imagine, all her life top one from the ranks tapos, can’t enroll ‘cause lacks money for college tuition!. Grabe na ito! Hindi ko talaga ma-take!! ::WAAAAAAAHHH::

[Quote] Marvin: Hindi ka ba naging masaya nung magkasama tayo? Sa opinion ko kasi ginawa ko naman ang lahat para sa iyo. Ang totoo nasasaktan ako ngayon kasi alam kong galit ka sa akin. Ano ba talaga ang ginawa ko? Bakit kasi ayaw mong sabihin?

::SIGH:: [Sayang, hindi pa niya nare-realize na mahal na pala niya ang “asawa” niya.] ;'(

Sabihin mo ba yan sa akin? ::melts::

Si Volvieras A Mi

Josh Groban

Si Volvieras A Mi

¿Como sobrevivir?
¿Como calmar mi sed?
¿Como seguir sin ti?
¿Como saltar sin red?
Con ese adios tan salvaje y cruel
Me deshojaste la piel
No hay eternidad en final se quedo
Y un desierto es mi corazon

Ay si volvieras a mi
Encenderia el sol mil primaveras
Si regresaras por mi
Seria un milagro cada beso que me dieras
Pero hoy te vas
Y no hay vuelta atras

¿Que habra despues de ti?
Mas que estas lagrimas
Si hasta la lluvia en el jardin
Toca musica sin fin
Sombria y tragica
Hoy de rodillas le pido a Dios
Que por el bien de los dos
Algo en tu pecho se quiebre al oir
A este loco que se muere de amor

Ay si volvieras a mi
Encenderia el sol mil primaveras
Si regresaras por mi
Seria un milagro cada beso que me dieras
Pero hoy te vas
Y no hay vuelta atras

Y desataste un huracan
Fuego y furia de un volcan
Que no se apaga
Como olvido que fui
Esclavo de ti
Ya no puedo mas

Ay si volvieras a mi
Vida ay si volvieras
Si regresaras por mi
Seria feliz otra vez
Pero hoy te vas
Y no hay vuelta atras

If You Would Return to Me (ENGLISH)

How to survive
How to calm my thirst
How can I continue without you
How can I jump without a net [to catch me]
With that farewell so wild and cruel
You hurt me to the core
I remain stuck in time
And my heart is a desert

Oh if you would come back to me
The sun moves through a thousand spring times
If you returned to me
It would be miracle with each kiss you give me
But today you’re gone
And there is no turning back

What is there after you?
More than these tears
Like the rain in a garden
Little music in end
I could try but I would fall
Today I say “goodbye” on bended knees
That by good of the two
I sense the emptiness in you
I’m crazy that I am dying of love

Oh if you could come back to me
The sun moves through a thousand spring times
If you returned to me
It would miracle each time you see me.
But today you are gone
And there is no return for us

And, I am an undone hurricane,
The fire and fury of a volcano
That doesn’t turn off
I was like a fine wine
Slave to you
I am no longer able

Oh if you come back to me,
if you come back
If you returned me,
I would be happy once again
But today you are gone
And there is no turning back.

Note: English Translation I got from grobania.

Very sad song. my favorite of all Josh's. Beautiful music.

Deseo fijar algo en este blog pero apenas no puedo elegir qué escoger. O apenas no puedo encontrar uno. O estoy demasiado ocupado realmente hacer una entrada. ¡Waaah! Soy confuso. ¡Haha!

Tuvo que hacer el lavadero ayer por la noche. Acabado aproximadamente la medianoche doce; finalmente colgar el pedazo pasado sobre la secuencia de las ropas. Pienso que voy a trabajar en las hojas y las mantas de cama esta noche.

¿Qué a mí deseo entonces escribir? No sé. Soy justo busy también con la transcripción de esta documentación y de mis daños del oído. El deseo I podía acabar hoy. Oh por favor...

Un pensamiento apenas ahora cruzó mi mente: Deseo un gato persa. Mirada muy linda y maravillosa. El dios es maravilloso y sus creaciones son brillantes.

Necesito prepararme para el exhortación en el vigésimo primer. Todavía no tengo asunto a discutir. Sé que mi problema es gerencia de tiempo. En la noche, el tiempo pasa demasiado rápido y estoy teniendo problemas cuándo programar mi estudio. ¡Debo comenzar esta noche!

Español tan cerca de mi lengua; la mayoría de nuestras palabras se prestan de ellas de todos modos. No es duro entender después de todos.

Realmente debo comenzar a aprender esto fluido. Suspiro.

3 October

First Monday of the Month

Ang tagal na agad ng huling update ko. Monday morning at antok na antok ako! Nakakaguilty pero antok na antok (as in) talaga ako! Haay…

Flag ceremony today. Dr. Nestor N. Pilar is a cute, ‘young once’ man with a lot of humor. He looks too strong for a septuagenarian. He talked about population and aging and natural disaster. The MC summed up his message to: Aging is a natural disaster.

Yesterday, Pastor Aries gave us a powerful message. The fruit of your lips determine the life you live. Speak with declaration and victory and thus will happen to you. Henceforth, speak of blessing all the time!

And at the Core meeting last night, Ate Euge told me that our dear adviser thinks me and Red are love team. Very silly! Not one of us ever thought about that. How come that idea crossed his mind! Was it because we go home at the same direction? It’s a major joke. This young man is calling me ate [older sister] all the time! And I am an older sister [a year older] to him. Haha! We’re all laughing hard learning about it. People think differently; no question about it.

I really want to sleep. Soy cansado [Spanish: I’m tired].

Thursday, September 29, 2005

On purpose.

Wala lang, kung minsan ewan ko ba kung ano nangyayari…. Nanliliit ako pag naiisip ko, halos nanlalambot ang mga tuhod ko. Nakakahiya talaga. Ba't ba kasi...Kuuuuu.....



Just finished another forum; as expected, I had to lead the invocation while Aidz sang the anthem. Talk about being stereotyped. And not to forget the registration and certificate distribution. Huh!


Thursday. Tomorrow, Friday. Almost end of the week…

Wednesday, September 28, 2005

Back to business.

So much of the josh-kdrama-friends online-realm; I need to face the fact: work in progress. We had a fine [for lack of word] trip to the Congress Archives yesterday but need to go back this afternoon for more documents. Huh. Deadlines are deadly.

Data gathering is easy but analyzing data is the bloody part. POLITICAL WILL. What a concept.

Three months to finish the report. Too much work; too little time. Very hectic schedule for [almost] a full-blown project. Lord, give me the strength and wisdom.

The preparation for the Youth Conference in December is currently running since inception. I was appointed to be the Assistant Overall Project Manager/Overseer of the event [yes, I mean the 5,000-youth conference] and the work is tremendous. I’m Pastor Reggie’s second [wo]man now, and it means a world of responsibilities. I now it’s tougher than I could expect plus that my [professional] work runs at the same time—also in a three-month critical period. Lord, I pray that Your hand be with me and make myself useful in your kingdom. Help me pursue this service for You.

I would appreciate your prayers. Thanks. Thank God for Phil. 4:13.


Tuesday, September 27, 2005

Finally! XD

The most awaited [surprising!] phone call from Tita Pressy is received! Talaga nga! Kanina lang kausap ko si Tita sa phone!!! Very unexpected! It was funny how we actually talked! HAHA! Nakakahiya talaga but all the time I was really laughing as in halakhak! Bwahahaha!

Sobra, imagine, I never answered a call from abroad before [pathetic ba?]! So, gulat talaga ko. Anyway, iba talaga pag kapwa mo Pinay; may kakaibang connection that binds —kahit pa it’s the first time we ever had ‘personal’ communication (tawagan talaga). Kasi naman magka-email lang kami noon, ngayon, kausap na!!! Huh! I’m still overwhelmed!

I really appreciate her taking the effort to know me more personally. Para talaga kaming magkamag-anak niyan! Ngayon nga mas may guts akong tawagin siyang Tita; pinoy na pinoy ang dating; related to everybody! Haha!

I had a good time listening to her on the other line; parang kung pwede lang sana mahaba-habang kwentuhan! Chika galore eka nga. Take note, talagang payat nga ako; imagine, sa dinami-dami ng pwedeng pag-usapan, it still diverted to my being a thin girl. Totoo naman kasi, at least I’m gaining weight now little by little.

Again, thanks Tita! Masaya ko that you finally contacted me.
Hope you have a great winter ahead of you. Kaya niyo yan [ang lamig!]

*overwhelmed and happy*

Quick entry.

Work related. Was asked to document the meeting this morning with the consultants and partners of the project, together with Chair Abalos of COMELEC. After lunch, I am terribly sleepy. Zzzzzzzzz…. Was already up by 4:30 AM to avoid the rush of commuters on a Monday morning. Haaah *yawn*…zzzzzzzzzz….

Well, going home this PM still. Another meeting; actually the start of the Staff [Training] Meeting for the volunteers in the upcoming Youth Conference. This is really tiring. Thank God I enjoy what I’m doing. Strength comes from the Lord. All for Jesus!

Pastor Mark gave me an embrace yesterday. =) I love this man. He’s really God’s servant. He said I was supposed to give him something. I said, “Give what?” “An answer!” he said. “Oh!” I smiled and said “Yes!” He was very happy. I would love to remain in the team, of course. I have committed a huge part of my life to MYF and am not going to quit now.

Thank God for another successful outreach yesterday! Go MYF! Glory to Jesus!

missed call!

I had this unexpected message from Tita Pressy yesterday. She was asking my phone number so she may call me the following day. She said there’s a 16-hour clock difference between Manila and Canada and she plans to call during my office break. Yes, that’s an international call! Shocking! Well, I thought she was just having this drastic impulse to call and so I was hesitant. But she insisted. She sent another message and said I should be expecting her call by lunch time. So I did wait. Unfortunately, she tried to contact me using the trunk line and had a hard time connecting since she forgot my surname and what department to find me. Haha! Sayang naman ang tawag niya!

Well, technology amazes me. Imagine, thousands of miles away and yet be able to connect with the people on the other side of the world! Wonderful!

I wish next time we can talk and at last hear each other. We’ve been sending emails for a while now. Don’t worry Tita. There’s always a second chance.

Thursday, September 22, 2005

>> mAiLs << =D

A normal morning routine, checked my emails and found two interesting letters from friends. One’s from Sis. Agnes and Bro. Karl in Princeton and another from Tita Pressy, also in Canada.

It’s not yet winter, but the night temperature is down to almost zero and frost. Sis. Agnes (she’s 71 years old) said she had a big garden again with a lot of root veggies to harvest. Broccoli’s the best!!! Her little Hannah, now two years old, is already a big sister. Paul and Naomi, had a new baby last July 9, a boy named Samuel Elijah, and they moved in a small city on Vancouver Island to Church plant. A baby boy—I like that! I wish my sister-in-law’s baby is also a boy! I already have four nieces.

Tita Pressy really surprised me. She sent three letters today, asking my phone number. She wanted us to talk—personally. Hey, that’s expensive! I said I wouldn’t advice that since it’s not cheap plus, we can always communicate through emails. After all, she may contact me when she goes back in the Philippines. Maybe she just misses another Filipina’s voice. She’s been a western citizen for the longest time.

Mails are pretty exciting to read. Especially from people you care about.

September 21

Most Filipinos remember this date as the dreaded "Martial Law", the date when authoritarian rule was officially signed to be executed in the Philippines. That very date, September 21, 1972, my second eldest brother was born. And today he's 33 years old.

Happy birthday kuya! We're blessed to have you in the family. We pray for your happiness!

My apologies.

I went to jane’s blog and read her recent entry –her disgust on people who doesn’t know how to give proper credit (for things ‘taken’ from them—via net). At times I’m guilty of this (pictures- most of the time), just that I suffer forgetfulness badly! But I am more conscious now on matters of this sort. But I still owe apology to those people whom I discredited in the past. I’m sorry. I am more conscious now. And thank you for your wonderful works.

I could breathe better now.

time to update!

yesterday's post!

Saw Oscar Dela Hoya for merely two seconds yesterday *sigh* He was on Chavez’ side. Details on my other blog.

I didn’t get to see the whole boxing fights yesterday. But the match between Barrera and Peden was too intriguing, as if the Australian (Peden) was under MAFIA. He did not punch at all. He looks tough, he’s a champion himself and the fight was a unification bout, but did not throw punches. HOW COULD YOU WIN BOXING WITHOUT PUNCHING?! Alas, he could have taken Barrera by KO if he fought “real”. His right hand seemed deadly. At some point it seemed something was holding him back to offense; he just received every blow from opponent and still managed to finish it to round 12. What a pro!

It was a ‘disappointing’ match, I should say. Sayang naman, his crown was taken without properly fighting for it. I don’t know.

And, we had lunch with Dr. Lester Salamon of Johns Hopkins University and the PNSP Consultants and writers. Good lunch, Pampanga delicacies at Sulo Hotel. Sayang, we missed the Japanese foods.

Got to be home early tonight for another meeting about the Conference in December. This time we’ll meet with the CMCB, about 40-50 pastors, to talk about the linkage and support with this project. God bless us.

Nothing follows.

mY jOsH & TitA pReSsY!

That smile is killing me!

David Foster (Josh Groban’s producer) and Friends (that definitely includes My Young Baritone!) held a gala last September 10th in British Columbia. Tita Pressy has been telling me about this since May (I think?). And so that day came and she went to the concert! The best part is, she had a picture with him! She sent a copy (see picture). Awesome! Josh in person?? Oh my…

She said she couldn’t believe how sweet and friendly this young man was. When she asked if she could take pictures with him, he instantly grabbed her waist and gave out a smile. Very, very gentle man. Like most grobies say.

*Sigh* Wish to see him myself, too. Soon.

Sassy Girl Chun-Hyang


This one is hilarious! Hahaha…
*scratch* wonder how the episode will be tonight??

I don’t think you can make me watch heavy dramas anymore! Laughter is the best medicine!

Monday, September 12, 2005

Proud to be Filipino!

To summarize:
I love it when I see Filipinos giving honor to the land--in thoughts, words and deeds. Last weekend was a blast! Thanks to Bautista, Viloria and Pacquiao! Mabuhay kayo!

Once again I heard the lines that made me chill: "MABUHAY, PILIPINAS! MAHAL KITA, PHILIPPINES!" Thanks, Viloria, you made me even more proud of you!

God bless you, heroes! Soar Philippines!

*very happy*

Learned a new [Korean] word today…

Everybody seemed to be referring to Matthew as Ajushi…. Only to find out it’s (actually) “ajeoshi” which means, mid-age Korean man or possessing ajushi-like traits, not necessarily referring to age.

Hmm... I wonder if I’m officially acting like an ajumeoni (opposite of ajeoshi) like most people say. *sigh*

am tired *yawn*

yeah... very tired. *stretch*
it's almost weekend anyway. ^^

got to see Sweet 18 tomorrow! i know it'll be a great episode!
>>i'm good with predicting stories<<

A great weekend to all! *waves*

Wednesday, September 07, 2005


got this from Enoch...

"the test of the ministry is not how much work you accomplish... is that you are still able to keep your walk with God in the midst of the busyness"

Thanks. I should always be reminded.

Great weekend!

Yes, it started last Friday night after attending the seminar that we sponsored in the MYF. On our way home, my youngest brother said he’ll dropby the mini-carnival on the park to meet my other siblings. My youngest sister said she wants to go too and insists that I go with them. So I did. I found out that my older brothers (I already have 2 brothers married) were there together with their families. I texted my older to sister to come and she did and –ola! That was a wonderful time spent!
Take note: I finally gave myself a ride on the carousel. I am so fulfilled!

Saturday nights are really fun nights at home. While having supper, we started the debate AGAIN---for the nth time---on ANIMAL-FISH-BIRD-INSECT category! Haha! I have new evidence to support my claim, i.e. there is a different category for a national fish, national bird, national animal… so they are not the same! My ate [older sister] is so confused! Hahaha! It was really fun!

Sunday night, I went for another meeting in the Core team. We’ll be more occupied now planning for the conference in December. 5,000 young people---that's quite a number and needs not minimal preparation. I have to attend tonight’s meeting with the pastors so got to be there by 6pm [means leaving the office atleast by 5:15]. I’ll be going home on a Monday evening exclusively for that meeting. =)
Let Your will be done, Lord!

I want to commend the Japanese government for recognizing the ‘special persons’ through sports. Last weekend I watched a clipping of the ‘Special Olympics’ that was held in Japan wherein a lot of ‘special persons’ from different parts of the world were given a chance to be participants in the event. It really brought tears to my eyes; I am really overwhelmed by the humane act of Japan to give credit to our mentally-challenged brothers. Well, I say thank you for that. I share the same sentiment. I salute you!

The man or woman who delights in, recognizes and encourages the BEST in others is a joy to experience. Perhaps there is no finer gift than the ability to sincerely validate another person.

There is always something GOOD to be found in another. We are often in need of personal connection and affirmation and there are many critics in life but few celebrators. Celebrators are those special people who can, with a word or touch, affirm the worth of another. Wouldn’t we rather add to beauty and joy of the world than subtract from it?

When we celebrate the worth of others, we make our own ENERGY and ELECTRICITY. The people who know us will want to stand on our line to have their goodness exposed and we will find ourselves surrounded by FRIENDS who bring us their BEST.

In other news....

I get to proctor two examinations this morning. Pwew, the students will really stretch the time! I understand, I've been there. The thing was the room was too hot, the aircon doesn't work. I was like, "Oh my, I can't breathe." plus, I didn't bring water so was 'dehydrated' the entire morning.... Oh well....


And here comes another weekend...

Yuletide Season begins today!

Ha ha, it’s September! Christmas is in the air!
Merry Christmas everyone!

:Starts count down:



You were born with DIGNITY and WORTH that no one can take from you.
Not even you can take it from your self!
You are a PRECIOUS and UNIQUE gift.
There has never been nor will there ever be anyone exactly like you.
Life does have meaning and it is your task and challenge to discover it.
You have an IRREPLACEABLE contribution to make your family and society that no one can make for you.
Your life can make a DIFFERENCE if you let it.
Don’t let concerns about physical attractiveness, intelligence, money or the growth and changes you are going through get you down.
The key to overcoming the ups and downs
Of these feelings is to “BE YOURSELF”
And not pretend or strive to be someone else.

“There is one thing we can do better than anyone else; we can BE OURSELVES.”
~William Arthur Ward

Friday, August 26, 2005


I am your constant COMPANION.
I am your greatest HELPER or your
heaviest BURDEN.
I will PUSH you onward or DRAG you down to failure.
I am COMPLETELY at your command.
Half the things you do
you might as well turn over to me,
And I will be able to do them QUICKLY and CORRECTLY.
I am EASILY-MANAGED; you must merely
BE FIRM with me.
Show me exactly how you want something done,
And after a FEW LESSONS I will do it AUTOMATICALLY.
I am the SERVANT of all the great individuals
And, alas, of all failures as well.
Those who are great I have made great.
Those who are failures I have made failures.
I am not a machine
Though I work with all the PRECISION of a machine
Plus the INTELLIGENCE of a human being.
You may run me for PROFIT or run me for RUIN;
It makes no difference to me.
And I will put the world at your feet
Be easy with me
And I will destroy you.
Who am I?

I am habit!

Some blog quizzes...

I clicked on the link on a friend's journal and viola... here is how I ended up.

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.
In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're told that you're loved.
You'd like to your lover to think you are optimistic and happy.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.
Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as commitment. Love only works when both people are totally devoted.

Hmm... makes me wonder, am I like this? ^^

Happy Birthday Pinay!

Saturday, 20 August

Thanks a lot everyone! I really appreciate you guys having celebrated with me on my birthday! It was really heartwarming.

To my friends in josh-aholics, you really made my eyes teary! Thanks guys, I really appreciate you! Thanks for this: Pinay's Birthday.

It wasn't really a big celebration; perhaps the simplest that you may think of. I'm so blessed to have people around who love and care for me. I may not mention your names but I'm so joyful to have you in my life. Salamat talaga!

One person I want to mention though; that's the Lord Jesus. I thank you Lord for being so faithful to me at all times. I love you.

dalawang tulog na lang...

Sabado na naman. Ang araw lulubog, sa isang bukas manonood ng ... SWEET 18! hehe!

At siyempre, a time to thank the Lord for adding another year to me. Time is passing too fast; you don’t even get a chance to have second thoughts. Anyhow, He’s always been faithful to me and my loveones. Salamat po, Lord. I give You all praises!

Grabe, kahit ako hindi makapaniwala na dagdag edad na naman. Pinakamatagal ko yatang age yung 17. Parang maraming nangyari when I was seventeen. Ah, first year sa UP noon; marami ngang nangyari. Ano nga ba, 17 or 19? Ay, yung fifteen pala, yun yata ang matagal sa High School saka yung elem years. Gulo ko! Basta, ako pa rin ang youngest dito at one of the youngest sa core team! Hehe!

So walang pasok ang birthday ko. Wala rin ako online. =p Ok lang, I will go home tomorrow, Quezon City Day, so holiday dito! Tiyak na maglilinis na naman ako sa amin—yan, yan ang tinatawag na ‘a way to celebrate one’s birthday—aalilain!

Nakakapraning yung ginagawa naming specs ng activities. Imagine, almost one week ko na yung binubuno. Konti pa at matatapos ko na. Nasubmit ko na yung iba. Siyempre, winner pa rin ang aking External factors. Wala na yatang katapusan yun! Sometimes, I just ignore it!

Ay, nagluluto nga pala ako ng pansit tonight. *cross fingers* Marami nang nag-coach sa akin how to do it, I hope Experiment No. ___ will be successful! Nadada li lang sa experiments ang kitchen namin, nakakaros din! Hihi! I'm expecting friends to come over: mag-asawang Mhes at Czar saka si Tephen, tapos kami nila Teeny at Aidz. Sayang hindi yata pwede si Mam Dol.

So, next week na lang uli. By then, I'm a year older. *eyebrows*

Now That You're Near

Here is my favorite song...

Now That You're Near
by Hillsong United
Album: To the Ends of the Earth (2003), Blessed (2002)

(verse 1)
I stand before You, Lord
And give You all my praise
Your love is all I need
Jesus, You're all I need

(verse 2)
My life belongs to You
You gave Your life for me
Your grace is all I need
Jesus, You're all I need

(pre chorus)
Hold me in Your arms
Never let me go
I wanna spend eternity with You

And now that You're near
Everything is different
Everything's so different, Lord
And I know I'm not the same
My life You've changed

And I wanna be with You
I wanna be with You

And I will sing for You always
'Cause in Your presence God is where I wanna stay

... and I'm currently listening to ...

Saving Grace

As the waters cover the sea
So your love covers me
Guiding me on
Roads unknown
I trust in You alone...

Deeper and deeper
I'm falling in love with You....

Aren't we so blessed? [so grateful ^^]

Pamela is a Christian and she was raised by her father after her mother died giving birth. Every night before going to bed, her father would pray with her.

Pamela never kissed or dated a guy until she was 16 years old, as her father said many times that there’s no better gift a woman could give her husband than to remain pure and share her first kiss with him at the wedding altar. She believed this until a guy named Jerry from school asks her out, and because of pressure from her friends she consented. Jerry is a very popular Christian guy, so Pamela asks her father if she could go to a basketball game with him. He said NO! She decided to disobey and go behind his back anyway. On their way home from the date, Jerry tried to kiss her but she ran away into the house. Her father was terribly disappointed in her rebellion, but they prayed together and Pamela said she would never do it again. The next morning in school, everyone was talking about Pamela and Jerry. Jerry told his friends that he kissed Pamela many times in his living room. In spite of this lie and rumors going around, Pamela was able to get through this with the help of her loving Dad.

Later on, her father, who owns a Christian film distribution, hired a boy named Frederick to help him. He was a young Christian who went to the same high school as Pamela. Frederick was a man of integrity. He became the friend of Pamela and also her father. They would go hiking together and would even celebrate holidays as a family. After graduating, Frederick decided to stay on as a fulltime employee.

It was wonderful to find out that Frederick, like Pamela and her father, had the same beliefs. He promised the Lord to reserve his first kiss for his bride. It was not long until he realized that he loved Pamela. At the end of the story, Pamela and Frederick married and shared their gift to one another on their wedding day. Her father was overjoyed that his daughter would spend the rest of her life with this man of God.

Pamela and Frederick’s story is not a fairy tale; I believe it with all my heart. It’s actually possible; we just have to make it happen. Why not wait for the best that God has reserved for you? It’s a choice. I pray you choose the best.

weekend life

Actually, I have a lot to post today; I just don’t know where to start. What happened thus, I almost forgot half of what I planned to post! Oh, well, the forgetful-me strikes again!

>>> Saturday <<<

Saturday was ok. I was looking forward to watching Sweet 18 [which I refer to as ‘ I know’]. The episode is ok and I like the build up of the story. The Sunday episode was quite slow and it drained my excitement upon seeing the third party in the story. Hmp! her mere presence got into my nerves! [That’s the kid part of me.]

We had practice in the music team. My lineup includes Tagalog songs: Napakabuti and Sama-sama for praise songs; Kalakip ng awitin and O Panginoon for the worship. I love those songs and the team did a good job playing them.

Pastor Aries asked the youth to lead the prayer meeting. I felt so blessed having seen how the kids grew up. For a moment I couldn’t contain the thought that these were the young kids I’ve been pouring my energy to; and now, the Lord is so gracious to guide them to maturity. It felt good to hear them pray in the Lord.

We got home around 7-730pm. I went upstairs and lied on my bed; the next thing I know it’s already Sunday! Yup, I was that tired to skip dinner.

>>> Sunday <<<

The service was very good. The Lord is so loving and, hearing His word really lifts the spirit. This month’s theme in church is about obedience. The Bible study highlighted that Obedience authenticates our faith in Christ. True enough, it reflects how Christians are changed and called to perfection in the image of the Lord. Our path in life is reflective of how Christ called us to be.

In the youth fellowship, I asked Ayres to lead and she shared a couple of verses from Matthew 21; when the Lord expected the fig tree to bear fruits. God expects the same from us in any season…that is, He is looking for the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5: 22-23) in our lives. It was a beautiful reminder to everyone: we are expected to bear fruits. It may cause us to deviate from life’s norms and mainstreams however, we should be reminded that our life no longer belongs to us, it’s the Lord’s.

I was on time for the MYF core meeting and we talked about the Law of the Chain or the Law of the Weak Link. John Maxwell showed a striking point on the topic: the weak link can cut the team’s effectiveness into half of its potential. No matter where you place the Weak link, he will still drag the team down its Mount Everest.

I thank God for Pastor Mark. He’s been totally helpful for us youth leaders. He makes us feel effective and able to do more than we think we can. He truly is a motivator and I am more than grateful that he is. It sure lightens the load.

Thank God for another weekend. It’s a joy to spend it with my family and go on with the ministry.

Psalm 101


The Psalmist's Profession of Uprightness.
A Psalm of David.

1 I will sing of lovingkindness and justice,
To You, O LORD, I will sing praises.

2 I will give heed to the blameless way
When will You come to me?
I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart.

3 I will set no worthless thing before my eyes;
I hate the work of those who fall away;
It shall not fasten its grip on me.

4 A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will know no evil.

5 Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him I will destroy;
No one who has a haughty look and an arrogant heart will I endure.

6 My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me;
He who walks in a blameless way is the one who will minister to me.

7 He who practices deceit shall not dwell within my house;
He who speaks falsehood shall not maintain his position before me.

8 Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land,
So as to cut off from the city of the LORD all those who do iniquity.

Just for fun

We could learn a lot from crayons:
Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull.
Some have weird names, and all are different colors.
But they all exist very nicely in the same box.

God gave the angels wings – and he gave humans chocolate!!!!!
The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don’t know what you are doing – someone else does!

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then, your body and your fat are really good friends.

>random thursday<

Last night we enjoyed a great dinner. It was Aidz’ birthday and we had his ‘ever-famous-must-look-forward-to-Mommy’s-recipe-turned-to-Hawaian-style’ spaghetti! *gasp* Plus, Mam Dol ordered for us Chocolate Kiss’ Chiffon cake! Yum yum!

Hmmm…sarap talaga! [esp the spag with pineapple!] Aidz is really a chef in the making!


I made a new friend today!

Yup, finally, I made connection [sort of] with our next door neighbor. ^.^
I gave a cake to the little cutie two-year old Kristel. The tiny baby’s name [her sibling] I don’t remember since Kristel could hardly pronounce the name. At least, I can freely say ‘Good day’ to her mom whenever I see her.


I changed the plants’ arrangement outside the house primarily to keep the mosquitoes away and to ensure that the garbage won’t dump onto them. It’s annoying to see garbage stuck behind the plants [and it’s harder to clean up!] I hope our neighbors would cooperate taming their garbage. *cross fingers* Please!

Happy Birthday Aidz!

It's my dear friend's birthday! Uy, kuya, mas matanda ka na sa akin!
Wish ko: Good health first of all. Lam mo naman, bawal magkasakit sa bahay! =p
And siyempre, doors of opportunities and fulfillment in every endeavor. Nasa likod mo lang kami lagi.

We want you to be Happy. You deserve success!

You're always in my prayers,

If only...

Releasing Your Regrets
by Rick Warren

"A man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful. But if he confesses and forsakes them, he gets another chance." Prov 28:13 (LB)

How often do you play the "If only" game? If only I …
- had it to do over
- had listened sooner
- could erase the past
- could forgive myself.

Because no one is perfect - we all have regrets. We've made bad choices, said foolish things, wasted time, and hurt ourselves and others.

How do you release your regrets?

Here are some strategies that don't work:

WE BURY THEM - Burying the past doesn't work. Like creatures from a horror movie, unresolved regrets come back to haunt us over and over. Minimizing ("It wasn't a big deal"), rationalizing ("Everyone does it"), and compromising (lowering your standards) are ways we try to bury our regrets.

WE BLAME OTHERS - This tactic is as old as Adam and Eve. When Adam sinned, he took it like a man - he blamed his wife! We use blame to balance out our guilt.

WE BEAT OURSELVES - We try to pay for our guilt unconsciously through illness, depression, setting ourselves up for failure, and other forms of self-punishment. The problems with beating yourself is this: your conscience never knows when to stop! Many spend their entire lives in self-condemnation.


1. Admit my guilt. Own up to it. Don't make excuses. "A man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful. But if he confesses and forsakes them, he gets another chance." Prov 28:13 (LB)

2. Accept Christ's forgiveness. He's waiting to clean your slate. Ask him to clear your conscience. "There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Rom 8:1

3. Forgive yourself and focus on the future. "The Lord says, 'Do not cling to the events or dwell on what happened long ago. Watch for the new thing I am going to do." Isa. 43:18-19

day 1

by Hillsong United
Album: Hope (2003)
Words and Music by Reuben Morgan

Hide me now
Under your wings
Cover me
Within your mighty hand

When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with you above the storm
Father you are king over the flood
I will be still and know you are God

Find rest my soul
In Christ alone
Know his power
In quietness and trust

I so love this song. Thank God for His great love.

It's the start of the week and I thank God for reporting to work safe and sound. I have to finish the PES activities-points I am working on, so help me God.

Last night we had a meeting in MYF and discussed about the possible change in schedule of Reps [representatives’] meeting. We conduct it every first and third Sundays, but since it’s on Sundays, you expect everybody to be struggling with the schedule, many having conflict with their local church’s activity. Our adviser suggested a possible ‘open-to-all’ gathering, like a Christian service on Friday nights instead. I would be more amenable to that since my Sunday is already jam-packed with church activities.

We also watched a short video presentation about the enemy’s deception through music. It was a powerful video on radical Christianity and an interview featuring the church of satan. The host was Kirk Cameron and their website is I will check on that later.

Pastor Aries talked about the Last Days during the Prayer meeting last Saturday. He said prophecies of the Last Days are seen happening in the world. The call was to check on ourselves, a wake up call for Christians who may not be walking the holiness Christ taught us to take. Interesting ‘cause it coincides with Pastor Mark’s message last Sunday. They are both talking about advancing the kingdom of heaven today. Christians are called to ‘seek and save the lost’ and not to keep salvation to themselves. I have homework to make: Search for topics concerning revival. It has to be submitted on Sunday. Pastor Mark said he will let me lead the exhortation on Friday night services. Let God’s grace abound. Amen.

Weird, silly dream

What would you do when out of the blue, your family is forcing you to marry someone?

Gosh, I can’t believe what I saw? Much more WHO I SAW!

Background [true stuff]: I have a loving family who gives liberty and support to each member. It’s tightly-knitted and everybody cares for everyone. I call it a blessing.

Dilemma: For some reason, there’s this arrangement that one from the family has to marry THE PERSON. The situation says that my sister is an impossible option; that flashes the spotlight on me. Very weird because it was my brothers who are backing this marriage to happen. It’s like they wouldn’t let anything interfere with this wedding. It seemed I got no choice but to submit to them.

So the story goes with me accepting [given no choice neither liberty to object] to marry the person. The preparation for the wedding is almost complete and everybody’s just waiting for the big day! Silly though, I was, like, so complacent about what’s going around!

THE PERSON: This is actually the catch in the story. HE IS SOMEONE I KNOW. Unlike most dreams where you don’t get a glimpse of the person involved, this one is as clear as the midday sun. Personality-wise, he is a good person [and still is in the story]; very mild-tempered and gentle; and best of all, I am fond of him [not the romantic sense], being very approachable and easy to speak with. I find him to be an older brother. My brothers don’t even have the slightest idea who he is off the dreamworld.

CONFLICT: I can’t see any compatibility between us—more than anything, physically! [Haha, I can laugh the whole day just the thought of it!] And simply, because the US-issue is unimaginable!

It was agreed that I meet him at six PM. I think we are going to get a license or something for the wedding. I was on my bed and barely moved watching the clock strike at six. Then suddenly, it’s as if the world flashed in my face and the troubles sank in me like lightning. I realized I don’t want to get into this marriage and that’s extremely unreasonable [very late realization]. I don’t love the person plus the fact that if I marry him, I’LL BE MARRIED TO HIM! That sure freaked me out!

What I did, I cried and did an unexpected tantrum. Nobody made me go to where he’s waiting.

Lesson: I’m still not sure of it. But I’m glad I woke up before any counter action was made by my family.

I was in wonder when I got up and still laughing at the thought of this dream. Man, I sure did cry in that dream!

Just a few more days…

and another year is added

Life has been so wonderful, a lot of things happened. Another birthday means one more year spent, I hope to the fullest. Honestly, I feel like I was better before, but I don’t want to entertain that thought. Maybe it’s the pressure from all sides that’s pressing me down and hiding the ace of who I have become; what I have accomplished. It helps to hear people say I have grown more mature in leadership, for that I am so grateful, it lifts my spirit. What I wanted is to grow and walk in excellence everyday, since that is what everybody’s called to be. In leadership, you produce who you are, and I hope someday, I would be proud to present to the Lord the ones He entrusted to me.

Why is it that whenever I decide to walk in discipline, clouds of temptation come my way? Yes, of course, the answer is in John 10:10, for “the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy”. Satan won’t make things easy for anybody. Sometimes [at all times actually] I really have to be reminded that strength comes from the Lord and not in my own hands.

Wednesday night

Aidz and I planned to watch Mr. and Mrs. Smith last night. I heard it was a nice film and my siblings liked it. After all, we need to stay up late because Teeny’s not coming home until 1:00 in the morning. We thought the best time [to run it] was about 10:00 pm.

I felt quite uneasy, somewhat tired and uninterested watching the Kapuso shows, ended up playing “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”. I was determined to be a millionaire that night. Unfortunately, my carelessness brought me nothing; having missed the second to the last question with still one lifeline to use! Arrghhh!

When it’s time to watch Mr. and Mrs., the computer suddenly showed a boot error message. We gave up and I tried hard not to entertain frustration.

We checked on Teeny pass 12:00 midnight and she said she’d probably be out after 2:00 AM. That slave-driving office brought her home almost 4:00 AM which made my sleep close to disaster. Anyhow, glad she’s home safe and sound [asleep!].

I think I’m going to have a long day today. The staff meeting yesterday drained my thoughts quite splendidly. Great! Still not sure if we had to comply with the ‘quantifying activities’ memo of the university since they try to disown us somehow. Better check with Ma’am Lily.

Another random post. Just want to speak my mind.

Perf Eval

We had to bear almost six hours of staff meeting to tackle the revised performance evaluation procedure of the university. It was exhausting but I could imagine how drained Ma’am Jean [the facilitator] had been after talking that long. Anyhow, we shared a generous lunch!

It’s quite a tedious process, although this will be the first time Aidz [my partner] and I will be involved in the process. We have to classify our work into the most specific activities and generate specific points for each, in short, quantify them. Submission will be on Monday, 8 August and next meeting is on Wednesday, 10 August, Aidz’ birthday.

I hope to finish working on this on time. It’s not that easy, I know.

Help us Lord. Thanks.

i almost gave up!


Good thing i remember to spell QUIT as N-E-V-E-R! *wee*
I thought my blog page will stay as is with the side bar dropped down. Glad it's fixed! *leaps!
Just the pictures to adjust...

cost me to make a new one. i'll keep it anyway! ;p



Here are the kids from Autumn tale. It’s an unforgettable story.

Still can't have enough of SHK. Here she is...

i made it!

finally figured out how to post pictures successfully! Haha!

It's part of the learning process. ^o^

Aidz is busy building his blog. Now I have two blogs to roam... hihi!

Last night we had power failure due to strong lightning and thunder. We managed to prepare dinner somehow. Funny, we literally had candle lit dinner! Haha!

Friday, July 29, 2005

i think i

...i'm finally hooked on Kdramas!
Autumn in my Heart, aka Endless Love I, is my first ever Korean drama to appreciate. I mean loved it so much! This drama introduced me to Jenny and Andrew, my well-loved couple. However, this is a tragic story and it cost me volumes of tears. I admit that.

This is a nice picture of Jessie (SHK) and Justine (Bi) from my favorite drama, Full House. I laughed my heart out watching this.

My favorite couple of all times! SHK and Won Bin better known as Jenny and Andrew.

Here’s Song Hye Kyo…the most beautiful woman in my eyes! Ain’t she lovely?

Won Bin (Andrew) is the cutest guy in the planet [pardon my exaggeration!] !

Full House is a romantic comedy, I may say among the best Korean dramas ever produced. It’s my most favorite K-drama…ever! Song Hye Kyo made an excellent performance in her role as Jessie Han. She’s opposite the singer Bi, who plays Justine Lee.

Sweet 18 is another Korean romantic comedy that now clouds my K-addiction!

This couple is Lee Dong Gun and Han Ji Hye from Sweet 18. They are lovely and it excites me learning that they are real-life sweethearts! I know them by the name Lea and Matthew.

I'm fond of romantic comedies, light dramas in particular. I certrainly refuse heavy dramas now. What I actually needed is a dose of feel-good shows and stress-free scenarios. And most especially, peace that comes from the Lord.

puzzle me

Aidz said i might want to try this. .. here goes...

And so it was …

The most attended DGF in history!

We have more than 800 participants from different sectors of society, including government officials, students, media, political icons, and more!

Thank God it was a success. Thank God He put the prayer in my heart this morning. *relief*

I'm so tired.

i'll be speaking with you and not with anyone else. Bless me, please.
Thank you, Lord Jesus.

i will deeply appreciate if someone would pray for me tomorrow. and that our event will be successful. thanks.

I refused to believe that it could be so,
there's no way that I'm in love with you,
I lied to myself that it's just a petty jealousy,
that I must be feeling lonely, but I cannot hide it anymore.

I think I love you
But it must be so, Cause I miss you without you,
I cannot do anything,
and you are always on my mind,
so seeing this, it must be, I was unaware,
but now I can see that your presence have delved deeply into my heart.

We are not meant for each other,
and being friends is the best thing for us,
there isn't a single thing we have in common,
so I claimed there's no way we can be lovers,
but I don't want to make excuses anymore.

I think I love you
But it must be so, Cause I miss you without you,
I cannot do anything,
and you are always on my mind,
so seeing this, it must be, I was unaware,
but now I can see that your presence have delved deeply into my heart.

Why didn't I know that it was you,
Why couldn't I see it when it was right in front of me,
it was beside me all along,
but only now can I see love.

I think I love you
But it must be so, Cause I miss you without you,
I cannot do anything,
and you are always on my mind,
so seeing this, it must be, I was unaware,

i'm late!


poor me, i came late to work this morning... the saddest part is, only by 14 minutes! waaahhhhh!

now, i have to write an excuse letter to the Director because that was what we agreed on last Staff meeting. *sniff* I'm not supposed to be late if not for that traffic jam along EDSA going to Q. Ave (where did that jam come from, anyway!!!) Aarggghh...

i'm feeling very weak because of so much laundry work yesterday. I helped my siblings do the laundry; they're students and younger! Ends up doing almost all laundry myself. Anyways, i love them! Haay, Ate talaga! And worse, i have my period. Oh, it hurts.... my back and my lower abs....aaahhhh!

I don't want to sound grumpy, i just had an uneasy day to speak of. Anyhow, I thank the Lord for giving me another day to enjoy.

Oh, I should mention this: Heather, from the josh-aholics board, commended me for being a good listener. She said, "Oh, Pinay, what will we do without you?" Ahh... that's enough to make my day! Thanks!

Dear God,
I'm sorry if I have so many churns... I'm sorry. I know You made a beautiful day for me. Thank you. And please, make me feel well. Thank you Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
