Thank You Lord for the great company You have sent me so that I don't have to be alone on my bike rides.
Thank You Lord for the able hands that fixed my bike.
Thank You for the gift of hugs from little angels You showered with so much charm and love.
Thank You for such a great day.

I was able to spend hours on end with two cute, smart and talented
little girls. I could have spent more time with them but I had to go
lest I might wear out my welcome. I hope I can do that again. I really
had a wonderful time with the kiddies.
Thank You dear Lord for the gift of kids. They bring so much happiness
to me. I love how their imagination can make anything fun.
I had a wonderful day.

would like to remember.
The homily of Fr. Vester, the priest who officiated my friend's
wedding was really good. He started off by saying that the creatures
made by God are happiest when they do what they are supposed to do.
Birds are happiest when they fly because they were created to fly.
People were made to love, hence, they are happiest when they love. He
then quoted Corinthians, the part where it says no matter what you do,
no matter how good you were, it does not matter if you have not loved.
He said, you know if you have loved if you sacrifice for the one you
love. If you have not sacrificed for the person then you have not
loved that person. Secondly, you should will the good of the other
person. It must be the other person's welfare first before your own.
Thirdly, you should be best friends. He said, you know your marriage
is on the rocks when you are no longer friends.
His final advice is that you should not love the other person because
he or she is your spouse, rather, love the person as your best friend
because that lasts forever.
His homily made me want to cry.
He did succeed in making me want to cry before the program at the reception.
He asked me if I was married before. I told him it's complicated. I am
processing some stuff at the tribunal and I knew he understood right
He said, maybe it was never God's will for you to marry. Remember, he
said, at the end of the day, the most important is you. He wants you
to be happy. If the Lord has to change His plans for you, let him.
Thank You dear Lord because through him, I felt You.

My little friend really came last Friday and I had a blast with her.
Parting was again bittersweet. She gives the sweetest hugs. I am
hooked for life. :)
We had yoghurt and then we went to my cubicle to have more fun and to
play with my colleagues. She is such a charmer! I hope to see her
again very, very soon!!! I am missing her terribly.
I went up to Tagaytay and ate buffet at Bag of Beans, went to
Paradizoo (which was too expensive 299Php for entrance fee) and ate at
Nanay Dorie's in one of their bahay kubos! :)
We just slept for half a day hahaha!!! Soh lazy!!!
Paradizoo offers a camp site, this is interesting and also affordable
at 500 Php per night per person, entrance fee included.
A friend of mine got married. It was the most sincere, sweetest, most
personal wedding I have ever witnessed. I was their emcee as well, it
was exhausting but it went well I think. I had a blast. :)
Another little friend of mine has been asking her aunt for a letter
from me. Soh cute!!! She remembers me! :) I gave her aunt a letter and
a picture of us together. :) I even drew her a butterfly and some
hearts because she likes that. I hope to see her soon as well!
I miss her too.
This afternoon, I got to hang out with a sweet little boy of five
years. :) He was looking for me earlier today and when he saw me he
said, "You're here!!!". So sweet!!! :) He stayed at my cubicle for
most of the time that he was there.

Laguna later this afternoon. *giddy* I cannot wait to give her a tour
of the campus. Might take her to a yoghurt place later. *gushes* I am
really soh excited!
On an unrelated note, I have wasted this week. I was unable to work on
my dissertation at all.

Saturday with friends. I was able to hang out with two very cute kids!
The highlight of my trip though was seeing my most favorite kid in the
whole world! It was just pure coincidence that her family was at Bag
of Beans as well. We were going to have hot choco when I saw her mom
(a colleague of mine). I did not say hi right away because I did not
want to disturb her date with her husband if she was there with only
her husband (another colleague and a panelist). When I panned towards
the other side of the restaurant I saw my little friend wave. At this
point, I was just bubbling with excitement so hard to contain.
The night before I was already wishing I would bump into her at Paseo
because she lives in Sta. Rosa. Lo and behold, she was right there.
She gave me a tight hug and sang for me a song. She just turned 4 last
October but she is the coolest, smartest kid I know.
Before we parted she kissed me soh many times and hugged my waist and
then my thighs. She did not want us to part....
That kid is the sweetest!!!
I am missing her already.
The following day, I got to talk to two small little girls too... very
short chat but sweet nonetheless, thanks to my friend.
I just love being around kids. I should really get on with my
dissertation so that I can move towards my real dream. :)

put on after not being able to exercise for weeks after my operation.
I am totally out of my element today.
Just when the term is coming to a close. Seriously. I have been acting
crazy since yesterday. I have to get it together!!!
Okay, maybe that will do it!

It was excruciating! I had fun at first and then after three hours of
rapid fire questions, I felt myself wanting to gather my things and
say, "Thank you, but I think I have changed my mind. Thanks for your
And so it begins, this journey called the dissertation. Yes, that was
just the beginning.
Before I braved the storm, I had a little angel visitor and got to
play with her for a bit. She hugged me and gave me the sweetest smile!
I hope she visits again soon. I wish I could keep her *hehehe!*! I was
able to buy some fun time because another angel, a slightly bigger one
took care of the other logistics like carrying a giant pizza box and a
couple of hot wings boxes and three bottles of mineral water.
Seriously, I appreciated it. Beyond, beyond measure.
Also, it was nice to have people waiting after I was asked to step out
for the panel's deliberation. It felt nice to exhale.
Thank You dear Lord for a wonderful night cap last night after a
horrendous defense. :) Thank You for giving me the answers. Thank You
for helping me explain myself.
Please bless my work and the road that will lead me to its completion.

I have been blessed to see how compassionate Jesus can be up close
some weeks ago. I am so grateful. I hope that this chapter may end
soon so that I may be able to start writing a brand new one.
I bought siomai from 7-11 and it had mold already. I am really not
good at tasting mold. It was good that I shared the food with a friend
and so I only got to eat one piece. This caused me to be sick for one
I celebrated the day before my birthday with friends at Red Box and
then at Shakey's. It was fun!
I celebrated my birthday on the day. *big grin* I realized that while
people give gifts, the best gift is still the gift of time.
The sisters of MACE gave me gifts and even celebrated on my behalf. I
was unable to come because of a surgery I had to undergo.
I had my right breast excision which was scary. Glad to say that the
cyst was found to be benign. I am still recovering because I never
really got to rest. The day after the surgery I was already up and
about going to defenses. *ouch it's hurting as I type* This experience
however, made me see the people who really cared. Thank You for
surrounding me with people who care.
I am to emcee three times this month.
I am a bit exhausted already. If all the above mentioned is not
enough, I am also to have my dissertation proposal defense on March
This month is packed!

Thank You Lord. :) I really felt special today. Thank You because those who matter remembered and took the time to make today a special one. Thank You for giving me gifts every single day just because.
I want to always remember the feeling. *sigh*

The surprise came from an unexpected source which made it all more a surprise. Today was an amazingly happy day.
Balloons, cake, ice cream, uber cute kids, wonderful people, shopping.
Thank You Lord.

Okay, I was not really re-reading, I was simply reading the summary.
This is enough for me because I have already read this book back in
college and then a few years after I graduated from college.
I was reminded that the book is telling me to wait and to trust in the
plans of the Lord. You'd be surprised at how much I suck at waiting.
As I was reflecting on the book, I remembered a conversation I had
with a good friend of mine. We have been friends since 1995.
We were then talking about my budding relationship with my third
boyfriend who will eventually be my husband and then not. Wow. I can
finally write that down. Maybe I will write about that some more later
on. That will do for now. I digress.
I was so giddy and could not wait to get into a relationship. My good
friend had to remind me to slow down. She said, until I do not learn
what the Lord wants me to learn, He will continue to teach me. I may
get hurt in the process and it will hurt more and more until I learn.
Of course, during that time, I just ranted about my lack of
discernment when, right then and there, through my friend, the Lord
was already talking to me. Telling me to slow down and not rush. To
think things through... *sigh*
You know what? I am done regretting. I am done wondering. I am where I
am because this is where I need to be right NOW. While I would rather
be somewhere else, who am I to claim that I know better? The Lord has
great plans for me, all I need to do is sit back and relax. That
should not be too hard. I simply need to take in the view and to
relish the moment that I am in.
All I need to become, all I need to experience, all I need and want
will be given to me because:
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
In green pastures he leads me.
In restful waters he restores my soul.
He leads me to do good for his namesake.
Though I walk through the darkest valley,
I am unafraid because He is with me.
His rod and staff comfort me.
He prepares my table in front of my enemies
He anoints me with oil
Goodness and mercy follow me all the days of my life
I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Thank you for the promise of tomorrow.

This site will find a credit card processor for your business. While there are other processors in existence, they would normally charge you exorbitant rates because your startup business is considered as high risk. This site will find a processor for you that will charge a smaller processing fee for your business. What makes this deal even sweeter is that, if you do not want to do business with the processor found for you, you do not have to. There are no strings attached, you are free to walk away.
To get started, you just need to send the details of your business so that they have a clear picture of what you want to do. After which High Risk Accounts will put you through with a processor and you will be ready to take your business to new heights. With credit cards, you will have a wider reach which translates to more money! Now, I have to really start conceptualizing that new business I have been thinking about.

hobbyist friend. I have played Monopoly Deal, Bhonanza, Guillotine and
Wasabi. While it is an absolute joy to play, it also eats a great deal
of my time. And their time. We should really do try to do something
about this. :)

Got to talk to one of my fave little gurls! It was so sweet that she remembered my name. Aww...
I was able to work on part of my prototype as well. I got to watch Underworld at the Platinum cinema. I forgot to bring my shawl (again!!! haist!!!) but I got a free lease on a cozy jacket! *yehey!!!*
Early this week I got to spend quality time with my mom and I also go to play Monopoly Deal (Finally!!!)! :)
