So Soon

Here’s a wonderful song by Maher Zain.

Missing u momma, so much!

It’s going to be our first Christmas without her.  Christmas is an exciting time for me because it is time for my family to get together – but not anymore this year.  Now that mom is gone.  Only the good memories is sustaining me through so that my days won’t get too sad and miserable.

Wish List

I am in the process of making my wish list but I know that before I could finish that, I have also to finish my gift list.  Since I am going to CDO anytime this week or next week, then I should have my gift list ready.  I have no budget for that but I also know that God will provide.

Personally, I love to receive gifts.  Be it big or small as long as it is heartily given, it just add color to my day.  I also realized that I feel a different happiness when I am the one giving a gift to someone, especially the ones who are not expecting anything from me.  Do you feel the same when you give someone a gift?  Tell me.

Making the list is easy but picking the gift is somewhat tasking.  Because you want to make sure that the one who receives the gift can make use of the thing you give him or her. Right?   So I am also in the process of scouting what to give him or her.  There are also some things I ordered online taking advantage of the Free Shipping the company is offering. There are so many sale online these days and they are good grabs for the holiday season.

So to make the holiday season a wonderful season for each one, share your love and share what you have. It’s not the price or the size that counts. It is the gesture or the effort that matters most.

Wedding Photo Souvenirs

If you attend a wedding these days, you will go home with not just one souvenir but several.  The wedded couple surely prepare a token or what they commonly call a give-away.  Just one. But today, we received two.  That is just for the record.

This post is about the photo souvenirs that I bought at the end of the program when you can haggle the price to the lowest.  I am not fun of buying those pics but for this time, since it is Esther’s Wedding to Hernani, then I purchased the 4 pieces for Php 100.00.

They are not really dashing poses but all “stolen shots” but still worth keeping. lol!


PHoto #1 – Maricar and Me

The last time we met was the other year when she came to Iligan for a business-related visit. She attended because her daughter is one of the flowers girls. She and the groom were schoolmates in college and they happen to join the same group who went canvassing in Ozamis many many years ago.

Photo #2 – Jazzy and Me

This is Maricar’s pretty daughter. :)

Photo #3 – Me

A stolen shot of me. I guess I just arrived in church because it seems I am still damp with sweat. lol!

These are the three of the four photos I purchased for Php 100.00.

More photos will be shared from “free” sources later. I wish I have my own camera for more selfies or groupfies to share.

Esther and Hernani’s love story is unique.  I guess each one of their own love story to tell, but there’s I can really say that it is a perfect timing.  Esther is 40 and Hernani is 47.  You can just imagine the years they have waited for each other.   They’ve been to different places and yet, the friendship made through facebook has led them to this day – their Wedding day, their most unforgetable day!

Thank you Esther and Hernani for inviting me. Thank you also for allowing me to help you ease the stresses of the day by taking charge of the guestbook/signature frame/ and the gifts. :) We enjoyed our task.

Good night for now and I too is going home to have an early sleep.

Enjoy the night!

Wayback Wednesday #01 | @ 9-Dragon Wall, Datong, China

The first meme I joined that shares old photos was the Friday Flashback.  I post my share on my blog.  When things got busy, I failed to do it and started sharing old photos in Facebook as Thursday Throwback and the Friday Flashback.  Usually, I do share a Friday when I failed to do a Thursday.  :)

Now, here’s this Wayback Wednesday on Facebook.  The first I saw of this was yesterday and I think the idea was just so cool.

Here’s my first share for this wonderful past photo/ not current photo sharing :)

First Step Done…

I  just made a total of 4 posts at my postcard blog.  It seems I could make more posts. lol!  I am motivated to do so.  Why?  Oh well, I am just inspired because I just gave out letter of permission to research directors/deans in three big colleges in Iligan City.  That is some kind of major step I did to make me really get on with my feasibility study working.  The letter with my questionnaire is now in the respective schools and I have to call in at least middle next week to follow-up if my request is granted.  The 4th letter is still to be given to the VPAA of the school beside our office – AMCI.

Dear Lord, I hope you will touch their hearts to approve me in conducting that survey in the schools I went to today. Amen.

It’s the first step but to me it is a big leap done!

Rights of a Passenger

I just did not entertain the thought that as a passenger, we have rights.  Much more for an airline passenger.  Not until I saw this link to an article in my Facebook feeds.  5 Basis Rights of An Airline Passenger – I am not a jet setter, but I know the information here can be of help in the future.  I will be saving this link here, thus this post for future reference.

Disclaimer:  this article is not mine.

Elements of a Research Paper

I  was sorting through the notes I transcribed from the pics I took during our class in Business Research with Feasibility Study.  I feel that my notes were scrambled so I got confused. I have to call a classmate to ask what’s the content for Chapter 3.  She is away from her laptop, so I said, I will try to find a way.  My way then was Mr. Google!  Here’s what I found —

  • General
  • Style, layout, and page formatting
  • Outline of the chapters and sections
  • Chapter I – Introduction
  • Chapter II – Background
  • Chapter III – Methodology
  • Chapter IV – Results
  • Chapter V – Conclusions and Recommendations

This is really it. I like what I read. It is as comprehensive as what our professor gave us. So I am going to save the link to this site @ StatPac – How to Write a Research Proposal

Guitar for Beginners

One of the things I checked out while in the States was a good guitars for beginners.  There are just so many of them to chose from if you can visit a music store or a guitar store. I was thinking it is cheaper there and that nice feeling because the guitar is bought from the states, so I almost asked my sister to buy one for me. Actually, it’s not for me but for the daughter. Oh well I would have had a hard time carrying it back to Manila.  Thank God I backed-out from the idea.
