As I woke up today, it’s still gloomy but somehow I can see that Yolanda’s wrath is finally over. I heard over the news that this worst typhoon of 2013 has tremendously devastated affected regions in the Visayas specially in Tacloban, Leyte and Samar. Though Our location experience signal number 1, I am saddened but am grateful to God for keeping my family safe.
Thank you LORD, that finally another storm has passed. I deeply pray for all my brothers and sisters in the affected areas to bless them and fill them with hope that in spite of loss in property and loved once, the courage to move forward and go on with their lives will be their greatest motivation. May we as a Filipino people go hand in hand in helping each other, uplifting and encouraging our less fortunate brethren. I may not be able to give huge amount necessary to buy basic needs but I believe that when many little things come together, it will definitely will go along way.
I pray for unity, peace, hope, faith and love in these difficult times once again just a few days after an earthquake, stricken Bohol with the greatest damage with 7.2 magnitude last October 15. Life is indeed full of mysteries but behind all of these blessings and curses, God knows and sees the deepest thoughts of our hearts.
May God bless our beloved country….

FREEDOM!!!! Just like in “Brave Heart” movie of Mel Gibson…. I am thankful for all the heroes who died for the freedom that generations of today are enjoying and for the future generations to come…. It matters to me the history of my country and I know I have that obligation to make this “freedom” to be exercised for our own good and betterment of each lives of every Filipino. Not to abuse it and bring someone down with words that are no longer self seeking but self destroying.
As I was reading the status in my facebook, this quote from my friend Ochie that strucked me the most. Allow me to share it with you…
Those things she enumerated are also my deepest dreams for my country… and one thing I pray to God is to touch each Filipinos’ heart to Honor God more than any material things, power, and other selfishness. May God bless our country…

It was raining hard and we were supposed to be going to Victory Liner terminal as our ride going to Baguio. It took a different turn when the rain never stopped and Genesis terminal was just near so we decided to take Deluxe bus of Genesis.
Our very first experience was great. It only took us four hours and we safely landed in our destination… Baguio!
Below is the list of benefits in paying Php 685.00 per head from Pasay via Baguio trip:
1. Four hours trip
2. No bus stops for urinating since there’s comfort room in the bus
3. Bottled water, three biscuits and a magazine were provided for take home in case you won’t be able to consume.
4. A small bed sheet was provided as self warmer in case you were unable to bring jackets or you are lazy getting it in your backpack.
5. Comfortable stretching seat to sleep on
I must say, it is indeed a great experience. I would try it next time Need to save more to try new different things in life

My 30months lock in period in SUN Cellular is now renewable and I was able to get Alcatel Ultra IDOL for plan 450 with cash out of PHp 7,000. It’s a micro sim so I paid Php 115, to replace the sim with the same number.
Alcatel Ultra IDOL is originally plan 999 and what attracts me about this phone is that it was used in the IRON MAN 3 film. I am an avid fan of Iron Man and I believe most of you agree that it is indeed an awesome and great movie. And that is the reason why I chose it in replacement of my ericcson phone. I believe on the movie’s credibility endorsing a product knowing how advanced the film is, in terms of technology. Real like action pack film J. The value for money is satisfying since I am on plan 450, not bad. High end phones like Samsung and IPhone are definitely a must haves but practically my budget won’t allow me.
I was so excited about this phone . It’s my first time to have an Alcatel phone and so far I like it because of many features that most high end phones have. I tested the sounds, camera and call features and they all work perfectly fine. At first, I thought the quality of the voice is low because as my husband and I talk over the phone, he seems so far but when I updated the firmware, the quality of the voice became so clear. Good enough and no regrets I chose it. I am not a techie person but having a phone like this is already a blessing. I am contented with what it can deliver and all the things I needed are there but of course if there’s one thing that this phone can’t handle is a long battery life. I can deal with that since all android phones are like that, right? Another thing, I have to be careful in handling this phone because it’s quite thin . I do hope this phone can serve me well and I can take care of it well too
Oops before I forget, this phone has a free screen protector as part of its package and user friendly. Nice!

Nowadays, there are already substitute for traditional cigarette that are detrimental on the health of the user and they call it e cigaret (electronic cigarette). Its already available in the market specially in the malls. I have a friend who now use it and they find it helpful in eliminating the addiction gradually. As they say this e-cigarette is better since its free of nicotine, with various flavors and classy at the same time.
I do hope that consumers are more cautious with what they buy and prioritize their health.

Finally, we were able to cast our votes in our respective precincts
I have been a voter for three consecutive rows, and only now that I experience a free line in my precinct. Definitely a big change and I like it It’s better to vote in the afternoon than in the morning. We usually vote in the morning, but my husband told me to vote in the afternoon to avoid long queues, causing a terrible heat in the area. And true enough, this afternoon was very relaxing as I enter the precinct, looking for my name to sign, went to the available chair and shaded eggs in the ballot based on my notes that I prepared. PCOS successfully cast my vote as counted and with less than five minutes, I’m done with my obligation as a Filipino.
More than anything else, I am thankful to God that safety prevails in our area. And I continue to pray that everything will continue to be peaceful and in order. May God bless the winners and may they bring glory to God. Serve truly the Filipino people for the brighter future of my beloved country Philippines.
May God bless our country!

I love my Mama more than anything else in the world. Words are not enough to describe how thankful I am for my mother. A person whose generosity is undeniable and patience cannot be measured. She loves her children unconditionally, continues to forgive and takes care of us no matter how difficult it can be for her. I never heard her complaining when she’s tired nor bashing hurtful or harsh words when not in good mood. She is full of wisdom and knows when to be quiet and when to speak her mind when problem arises in the family. She is not easily angered but a fighter when her children are being maligned or aggrieved. She is still serving us and cooked for us. And if there’s one thing I admire about her is her faith in the LORD. She tries to be honorable in God’s sight and continues to know God. Her prayers for us her children are our line to GOD. A mother’s prayer is genuine and true.
We may have little misunderstandings like any mother-daughter relationship but my love for her will always be there. I appreciate all the hardships, understanding, patience, love, service, sacrifices and acceptance for a child’s shortcomings.
I have seen her hardships when I was still a child and all the more I wanted to make life easy for her in the best way I can with God’s grace. It is a joy for a child seeing my mom ageing with joy in her heart, contentment, worry free, with God in her life and believing that those hard times are over.
I LOVE YOU MAMA, Happy mother’s day! I honor you and I thank God for having a mom who never gave up on us and fought for us. Together we face another journey with hope that whatever lies ahead, God will be our refuge and our strength as a family.
I salute all the mothers out there!

We celebrated the 59th birthday of my mom in MoonRiver Resort near Patindig in Imus. And my review is three thumbs down . We rented a Cabana amounting to Php 1,500 but it was located where construction is going on. Until I went back and forth in their admin to ask if there’s available air conditioned room and they kept on telling me that there were no rooms available. But when my husband told them that the location of the Cabana they gave us is noisy because of the construction going on and the dirt waving our food, they decided to give the room to us amounting to Php3,500, sounds untruthful huh. We transferred 11:00am pm and we need to used it till 5pm or else we will pay additional fee. Its fine to pay the rental amount with the kind of service that equals with it and frustratingly, the room they gave as, air conditioned was small not proportion with the large size of the room. It is so hot even in aircon is on. What makes it hotter is that we closed the door knowing it will make the room colder. Till we finally decided to open the door since we can no longer stand the heat inside. The sink in the bathroom is clogged so we cannot wash properly. And the pool, we can see how unclear and unclean the water . It was a great disappointment because I was the one who chose it for our family outing . I just hope that the management should take necessary actions to go on with their business because definitely, with this experience, I will never go back and I will not recommend this resort.
One good point, the helpers are accommodating and helpful but this is not enough in gauging customer satisfaction. Overall impact must be a must…
