Soar High

I had a twist and turns of my life in the last few years., It was so fast a lot of things happen in a blink and so.In one point to another I need to give up what i want in life for the better of those people dear to me. I always had a race with time and resources , a lot of things to keep up that I need to shorten those days when I feel sad because I need to be fine. Because I want them to feel that I am.

And in just a month ago I stop working. The company I worked with was affected by the global crisis. They need to downsize the number of there employees, and I was one of those they need to give up.I got a partime job which last for a month.

Todayis the first day to be full jobless...a lot of realization, taking time to stop and decern. A lot of things need organization and attention. But one thing I am sure of , I want to soar high as high as a kite can achieve making all my hearts rightful desire come true..

In our lifes's journey we have a lot of things to be thankful of. The basic needs, the comfort of life.The family that was given to us and the friendship that we share to other people during life's journey.

I am very thankful for having a wonderful family and and a very close knit among the clan, blessed also with wonderful friends whom i consider a family too.

Last year 2009 is a bittersweet year for me. Sweet because It was the year of our church marriage. I for one believe that we need God's blessing in the union of two hearts. After over a year of having our civil rites we finally made a step of commiting ourselve in the fullness of the Lord.

It was then a painful year for i lost two special people in my life. A grandfather and my beloved mother. Both are inspiration to me. They are both my mento into the journey that we all call life. They are the living example of God's unconditional LOVE. They are both selfless for the family.

Lossing them both in a span of three months was not an easy journey to me.It was one my life's twist. I got lost for a while, but then i was THANKFUL to have wonderful people who stood with me all throughout. I don't need to enumerate them for they know who they are. To all of you Thanks so much!!!

I have made this cards to send them. In making this cards i realize how beautiful life is...and it makes me more Thankful each and evryday i live.

Serg's Chocolates..

If you are between my age you know what I am talking about.. This is one of the most popular local chocolates we had at that time.

Other than the yummy taste this chocolates offers to me it's always associated with great memories on it... I usually have boxes of this chocolates from my beloved grandfather... He never fails to bring few bars or even boxes every time he went out to get some grocery for the family...i can still remember how i waited for him patiently in the house porch. That was one of the old good childhood memories.

I can also associate this delicious chocolate to my first love, he knows very well how much i love this. He see to it that once in a while he gave me box of this kind of chocolates...He was one of those kindest person i have known..Wherever he is right now, i wish him all the best!

Our Lady of Fatima

After my college graduation, that was May of 1997 when started to gather the children and the youth at that time in our subdivision back in Villa Leyson. I taught the youth the basic of Catholic Catechism and the we have our daily catechism classes an the Flores de Mayo right after.

It was very inspiring to receive compliments from the parents who appreciated our work and who has been supporting us all the way to the success of our yearly Flores de Mayo and the October month of the rosary.

Time flies that the older ones get married and other went abroad. But, what makes me so happy is that the younger generation continued the service and am so happy to see that the service that I have started 13 years ago continued and touch the heart of the new generation.

I will always be a proud Katekista... And I thanks you from the bottom of my heart all those people who has been very supportive to us.

The new generation tag me the shirt design that they created...and i am so happy to see my name in there.. yay..

shirt in front

shirt at the back
did you see my name? I will forever be there Ate Che!!!

Journey to our kitchen...

Last night I did my first ever HUMBA. It's a popular recipe if you're from the south of the Philippines particularly "Bisaya" as we call ourselves.I am so happy it works well, even if it did not taste like the one of my folks but then I was complimented.. =)

I was never a cooked even before. I just cook for my own consumption, but then now that I got married (actually been married for over 2 years now) i need to feed my husband. So the learning begun.

To give you a look i came from a family who loves to cook my late mother is one of those people who's been admired and popular with her specialty which is Calderetang Kanding (Goat Caldereta) and Paklay(It's recipe with all internal organs in it) on t5he other hand my father is popular on his "inununan isda" (Fish Paksiw) and a lot more to name. In my side I am the knowing that both my parents cooked as well as there siblings so why do I? hehehehe i just ate what they prepare. But then when I went out of the country I have no other choice but to cook.

Wish me luck in my journey to cooking. I will be posting every now and then the ups and down in my journey inside our kitchen.. wish me luck
