Mulan


She is my first pomeranian puppy, a valentine gift from my husband. I named her Mulan after the brave disney character that I love most. My husband bought her from a very reputable seller in Manila and since this is my first time to take care of this kind of breed, the seller herself is always there to help and assist me whenever I ask some help and advices.

House Blessing

As Christians, it is very important to dedicate to the Lord what he has bestowed upon us. Today, we dedicate to God our house. It is a way of acknowledging that without Him, we will never experience these blessings.

Love and Life

I was cleaning the house and saw some of my stuffs in college (more than a decade). Inside my plastic envelope, I found a piece of paper where I copied an article entitled "Love and Life" from a book in the library which I forgot the title.

It hurts to love someone and not to be loved in return, but what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel. Maybe, God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be thankful for that gift. LOVE is when you take away the feeling, the passion, and the romance in the relationship and find out that you still care for that person.

One sad in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go. When the door of happiness closes, another opens. But oftentimes, we look to long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened for us.

The best kind of friend is the one you can sit on the porch and swing with, never saying a word, and then walks away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had. It's true that we don't know what we've missing until it arrives. Giving all your love is never an assurance that someone will love you back. Don't expect LOVE in return. Just wait for it to grow in your heart, but if it doesn't, be content for you know that it somehow grew in your heart. There are things that you would love to hear that you would never hear from the person whom you would love to hear them from, but don't be so deaf as not to hear it from the one who says it from his heart. Never say goodbye if you still want to try. Never give if you still feel you can go on. Never say you don't love a person anymore if you can't let go. LOVE comes to those who still hope although they've been disappointed; with those who still believe although they've been betrayed; by those who still need to love although they've been hurt before; and to those who have the courage and faith to build trust again.

It gets only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone; but it takes a lifetime to forget someone. Don't go for looks, they can deceive. Don't go for wealth for even wealth fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it only takes a little smile to brighten your day. Hope you find the one who makes you smile. There are moments in life that you miss someone that you just want to pick him/her from your dream and hug him/her for real. Hope you dram of that special someone. Dream what you want to dream; go wherever you want to go; be what you want to be, because you only have one life and one chance to do all the things you ant to do. May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to amke you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy.

Always put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the person, too.. A careless word may kindle strife; a cruel word may wreck a life; a loving word may heal and bless. The beginning of love is to let those we love be just themselves and not twist them with our own image; otherwise, we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them. The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything  that comes in their way. Happiness lies in wait for those who cry, those who are hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried for only they can appreciate the importance of the people who have touched their lives. LOVE begins with a smile, grow with a kiss, and ends with tears. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past. You can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. So live your life to the fullest so that when you die, you are the one smiling and everyone around you is crying. :)

Visiting my Hometown

It's been six months since the last time I went home in the province. This time would be so different. I will be traveling only with my baby. No husband since he is now working abroad, and no nanny with us since she has to go to school on Saturdays and she also has to take care of our dogs when I am away. I know that this won't be easy in my part since we will be commuting and I'll be bringing a backpack and a big trolley. I hope my baby will behave.

Pickled Papaya

My papaya plants are bearing many fruits so I decided to make pickled papaya or better known as "papaya atchara" to sell to my friends and colleagues to earn extra money. I was able to make 4 quartz of it. Some I sold, and some I gave to my family and my hubby's relatives. My friends loved my pickled papaya so I'm planning to make more this weekend.
