Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!! :)

Tuesday, December 21, 2010


Hello! :) It's been a busy December and there's still a lot needed to be done as this year comes to an end.

Here's some pictures from the past few weeks. :)

My parents just celebrated their anniversary. :)

This is what I love most about the holidays - shopping! :) For family and friends and for myself. Ha! I love bazaars and all the rush. :)

I'm so thankful for having a brother who's kind enough to drive for me too. :)

Currently loving Gigi's Cheese Custaroons and Poppers. :)

This Christmas tree is so big I love it! :) Found it beside the Rockwell Tent.

On other news, if you follow my blog, you'd know that my relationship with my granny are not so smooth. Actually it's not only me. Her relationship with everybody is not okay. And I don't know what's happening except that it's getting worse. She keeps on yelling and nagging to get things done. I can't work well in the office because of her. I can't sleep well at night because she sleeps after work, and when it's really time to go to bed, that's the time she'd wake up and start doing stuffs that's annoyingly noisy that'd keep you up the whole night. :( Is it just because she's getting older? Her choice of words and the tone she uses is totally different. And this just frustrates me. And my whole family as well. :( Sometimes I wanna answer back and walk away but I didn't because I know that it's wrong. :(

Anyway... What did you plan for your vacation? :) My cousins are going to Japan, others are going to Singapore and Malaysia. While I'm stuck here in Manila. Haha! I wish I could go with them and take a vacation too. :) So as usual, I'm attending our church's Youth Conference this Sunday-Wednesday. And we also have the yearly Praise Festival for Sunday School when I get back. :)

This morning we went to visit my maternal grandparents. :) And it's so traffic outside it took us two hours to get to their place! O.o I'm home blogging and waiting for PLDT people to come and put up another phone line. So I guess that's all for now! :)

6 days to go till Christmas!! :)

The Planner.

Today, I finally got my Starbucks planner for 2011. :) I've been collecting their planner since 2006. :) I love writing. Even if I keep a blog, I still keep a diary. :) I add pictures, stickers, and everything else to make it more personalized. At the end of each year, I look back on what the past year has brought me, there's always ups and downs, the joy and pain that goes with it. In the end, it's all good. :)

They have three designs this year - Wood, Metal, and Velvet. After much thinking, I finally got the wood. :)

October, my birth month. :)

This year, it's all about The Third Place -

It's not home;
it's not workplace.
It's that special place in between where
we meet to awaken our senses,
to find inspiration, and
to make lasting connections.

The third place --
this is what we have become for you,
our loyal customer, our friend.

Invitation House

While walking around the mall, I noticed this cute pink store named Invitation House. :) They accept made to order customized desk planners, calendars, and notebooks. :)

They also have colorful Christmas gift tags with many designs to choose from. :)

Aside from that, they have large square notepads, notebooks, personalized initial invites, blank cards, gift wrappers, and a lot more. :) It took me a good 30 minutes looking at the stuffs and bought a few for myself. :) I think these are good gift ideas for Christmas. :) I'll be back for sure when I have the chance. :)

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!! :)

a baby and some random stuffs.

Baby Kenshin

Last Friday, Kerby gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Kenshin, who weighed 8.5lbs! :) He's so cute.. and huge. ;)

Today is the last day of October, and it's Halloween. :)

This morning, I was given a chance to share during our Youth Fellowship at church. I shared about the importance of obeying the will of God and its eternal value. :) I love the fact that whatever we do for God here on earth has eternal value in heaven. Because everything in this world will pass away one day. I hope what we do won't be in vain. :)

I wonder where we'll go tonight, but wherever that is, it would still be fun because I'm with the people I love most - my family. :)

Tomorrow, early in the morning, we'll be going to Manila Memorial Park in Cavite to visit our Grandpa's.

Celebrity Nails

Last week, I booked with Celebrity Nails and tried their body massage. :) They offer home service spa treatments and nail care. :) I love that they bring all the things that they need, from the towels down to the oils/lotion, complete with a foldaway spa chair. :)

You can click the picture for a larger view of the price list. They have many celeb do service for them, so they really live up to their name. ;) Next time I'll try their spa pedicure. :) Nothing beats a good massage after a day's hard work. :)

twenty . three .

Today, I turn 23. :) I'm old! It still didn't sunk into me that I'm 23. Whenever I fill up a form or something that asks how old am I, I still write 20. Life stops at 20? Haha! ;)

But seriously, I've learned a lot. :) Though we may have gone through hard times, these would only make us stronger as a person. :) Growing up, I've been taught to be thankful for what I have.. and for what I don't have. And there are so many things that are here now that I'm grateful for. :)

I'm grateful for fabulous friends (and good food!). :)

I'm thankful for family. :)

I'm blessed to have these two man in my life. My Dad and little brother. :)

What can I say? It's been such a great ride!

Alabaster Jar

Tonight, we sang this song during the prayer meeting at church. It's a really nice song, and I thought of sharing it with you all. :)

Alabaster Jar

I. This alabaster jar
Is all I have of worth
I break it at Your feet Lord
It's less than You deserve
You're far more beautiful
More precious than the oil
The sum of my desires
And the fullness of my joy
Like You spilled Your blood
I spill my heart
As an offering to my King

Here I am, take me
As an offering
Here I am, giving every heartbeat
For Your glory
Take me.

II. This time that I have left
Is all I have of worth
I lay it at your feet Lord
It's less than You deserve
And though I have little strength
And though my days are few
You give Your life for me
So I will live my life for You
Like You spilled Your blood
I spill my heart
As an offering to my King

Worthy, worthy
You are worthy
Worthy is the Lord.

Sorry for being quiet here. been too busy with work, work, work, and church stuffs. but you know that i always update whenever i have time right? :) i still got some things done, like finishing Nicholas Sparks' latest book - Safe Haven. :) have you read it? it's beautiful! as always. :) i recommend you to read it, it won't disappoint. :)

I also joined the career outing with some churchmates at Grande Island Resort in Subic. :) it was a fun trip, even if i almost puked while we were riding the boat to get to the other island. i love my room mates, especially Grace. of course. :)

And last but not the least, i finally found the time to renew my passport already! haha. :)

Till here friends! have a great month ahead! :)

unfortunate events.

last night, grace and i went to visit a gospel friend. im glad that they agreed to go to interview with us and be baptized on Sunday morning. when we were about to leave, the mom was so furious and yelled at us. questioning what we were doing to her daughters, and told us eversince we invited them to go to church, they changed. that they became disrespectful, self-centered and all. it lasted for about ten minutes and we just kept silent. shocked maybe? but there's nothing to say really. because she won't understand us either.

this afternoon, i went to the drugstore to buy something, then i saw this scary-looking man looking at me. and he was paying attention to my every move. so i looked back at him as if saying "what!?". i waited for him and his two friends to finish paying for what they bought and leave the drugstore. i waited for sometime to make sure they won't return. i stepped out, looked around and the coast is clear, but as i reached the corner, i saw the three of them again, looking around to see if there were people and back at me. it's so creepy! so i turned around and thankfully saw a Baranggay Tanod, i told him to please cross the street with me because the guys were really scary and i think they wanted to holdup me. it's embarrassing, feels like im a 6year old girl again, but it really scared me. :( *sigh*

what a day.

im tired.

im tired of the never-ending things needed to be done.

im tired of the noise at home.

im tired of being angry at people not being considerate of others' feelings.

im tired of thinking.

im tired of not being able to get answers.

im tired of the ups.

im tired of the downs.

im tired of the rollercoaster.

and i just want off.

because im tired.

This (Not So Good) Week

this is what surprised me Tuesday night. my grandmother beside one of the cabinets that housed some of my things. i asked her what she was doing and she was just so furious. this then led to unpleasant conversations and yelling that left me crying all night. i didn't answered back anymore because i know it will only make things worse than they already are. she's really not herself and i just don't understand her anymore.

and here comes Basyang (the typhoon). the wind howled all night and lights were out. and it was a really sad sad night. one of the saddest i can remember and it feels like im so lost.


fast forward to today. Sunday. the grownups went to a party during lunch, so i, together with my brother and two cousins, went to the mall to pick up a book i pre-ordered at Powerbooks. :)

got it! :) Crazy Love by Francis Chan. :) i got many books now waiting to be read. hmmm.. it's all goood. :)

we stopped by Cerealicious to snack and rest for awhile.

About A-hoy : coco pops, chips ahoy, choco kisses

Pirates of the Cadbury-ean : koko duo, cadbury zip, oreo

Jumango : cornflakes, mango, honey crumble

it was gloomy and raining on our way home and it reminded me again of what these past few days had brought me. *sigh*


thanks to Joy for the pictures. :)

yup, she also took the first picture. ;)
