I want to cry

I am feeling a bit depressed as of this very moment and paiyak-iyak ako since I arrived here at work (syempre di ko magawang umiyak ng todo dahil gagawa ako ng eksena noh at ayoko nun. haha!)...

Anyway, I'm saving my crying moment later... I will cry to the Lord in my quiet time...

In the mean time, because I want to feel relaxed and calm (and because papatak-patak ang work load ko) I'm looking at these:

Somehow, wedding photos make me relax.

Now I want to *sigh*...

Christmas Conversations

Two of my most memorable Christmas moment:

Conversation #1, with John at the dining table after he played with his neice and inaanak- the super cute baby Chloe...

Rajsh: Naiimagine mo ba pag may anak na tayo? Ano magiging reaction mo?
John: Oo, parang ayaw ko na pumasok.
Rajsh: (in her mind and heart) Awww... *teary eyed*

(kung hindi klaro at di mo na-gets yung sinabi ni John, eto yun: baka daw hindi na sya pumasok sa work  kasi parang gusto nya laging makasama lang ang baby namin. Hehe. Ok ba? Kailangan tlga i-explain ko? LOL)

Conversation #2, with John, Mang Boy, Mama Edith, John-liit (pamangkin ni John), Noel and Erwin (ata) at the dining table:

Mang Boy to John: Next year na ba kayo?
John: Ano pong next year?
Mang Boy: Kung next year na ba ang kasal nyo...
Rajsh (sumabat): Sa 20-- po...
John to Mang Boy: Anong kasal?
John to Rajsh: Ano ba kita? Friends lang tayo ah!
John-liit (sumabat din): Kapatid lang ang turing ko sa'yo!
Everybody: Laughed out loud!

Hehe. Yun lang. Bow! :-)

Gifts vs Gift

The Lord made me feel so loved with the gifts I received but at the same time He reminded me that the GREATEST GIFT  OF ALL was HIS LOVE expressed at the cross- MY SALVATION!

That left me overwhelmed (again and as always!).

“Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.  She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” -Matt 1:20-21

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” -Luke 2:14

Thank You God!

I'll be posting pictures of the gitfs next time. Hehe. ;-)

Vishnu, the 6th among us siblings, has just turned a year older.

Happy birthday my dear brother!

My prayer is that you will grow in love with the Lord and let Him fill the love that we failed to give, most especially during the years you were not with us...

I love you and I hope you feel it... I have a very special gift for you. I shall give it to you when we meet! Hehe! Kitakits! Mwuah! :-)

Love, ate Bini


Your response is your responsibility.
-Dr. Emerson Eggerichs

That is one unforgettable quote I learned from our mentoring session (watching the Love and Respect conference in dvd).  What does it have to do with the title of this post?

My heart has been crying and mourning over something that has been going on... This "something" is not new. It has happened a couple of times. To be honest, I lost count already. And to date, I still ask-- Why are they like that? Why do they choose to leave a legacy like this to us and the generation after us?

Nakakalungkot. Nakakadisappoint. Pero ayun na nga, sila naman ang magiging accountable kay God pagdating ng panahon.

So I say it again--
Your response is your responsibility.
(Note: the qoute is also my everyday reminder to myself)

"their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work." -1 Corinthians 3:13

Pasko na!

Few days to go and it's Christmas again... And I'm still delinquent with my blog entries.

When will I catch up kaya?

Grabe na ito, 7 entries on queue! Hahaha!

In the mean time, let me greet you in advance... Sa may Christmas Tree sa GCF:

Love. Hope. Peace.
My only prayer is that we will not miss the true meaning of celebrating CHRISTmas. Ü
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

-Isaiah 9:6

Stirt Ball

I went to Divisoria earlier to do some shopping for Connect for our up coming event next month...

One of the things I bought were stress balls. Since this is ministry expenses, I asked for receipts for all the purchases I made.

When I got home and did the collating and accounting of the expenses I saw the receipt for the stress balls and it said:


I laughed my heart out and I texted my Connect friends about it and I just can't help but blog about it now.


**picture of the said receipt, to follow.

Farewell baby!

Mike and I went to NAIA this morning para ihatid ang aming Baby Sager na lilipad papuntang Dubai (where she and her husband will live..for good...?).

I will miss you my dear Sager... I know we've been physically apart naman because I'm in Net plaza and you're in Philam Life building. Nevertheless, the thought that you are leaving makes me really sad. And I'm sure si Mike din! Our trio is now incomplete...

But like I said, I'm also very happy for you that finally you'll be with Puto, your dear husband! And I'm very sure you are super excited! Hehe.

Keep in touch ha? And keep checking on my blog!

I love you and I will be on praying for you... I hope you like the book I gave you! Make use of it as it has changed and still changing my life.

Don't forget Him as well. He's been so good and gracious. I know you know that!

Ayun lang. Drama. Tama na!

And as promised... The highlights below:

Calling her when we arrived
There she is!

Sager with Mike na nanlibre uli ng breakfast! Hehe
At sumama na ako sa letrato

Model ng mga inorder nila

my hug says: I will miss this girl!

Sager, sobrang pa-cute ka dear! haha

My farewell gift : the book Love and Respect and my fave lip balm

Her passport, naks Villaruel na! 

With her College Best Friend

Oh kami naman!
Tried out our shades (Mike's and mine)

*more to come!

Coffee Bean and Spa

For Haraya Lama's birthday, I asked her if she was going to be on leave from work, she said (at first) that no, she won't be... But when I told her I want to treat her "out of town" she agreed. She kept on asking me where will we go, ang kulit ni ate! It was supposed to be a surprise pero dahil baka di pa sya mag VL I told her: "We will go out of town.. out of Mandaluyong!" Hahahaha!

And then I told her her I will treat her to a spa. Ayun na-excite sya! Pero humirit pa sya ng isa pang hiling; she wanted to join me on my discipleship session with Teacher Carol... And so we went to our (T. Carol and me) favorite place:

Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

Listening to T.Carol in her "lecture"
Sila na ang nagusap. Taga-picture na lang ako. Hehe.

After Coffee bean, Raya spent time alone with God in prayer. Then we went to Rob Galleria para sa aming pinaka hihintay... But we end up waiting some more, kasi 11am pala ang bukas ng...

After few hours of waiting... This is it!

Spang-Spa na kami!

First time nya ito. Yan sige, enjoy the sauna bath!

Nov 17 and locker #17
Happy birthday my dear sister!
Ang pinaka-magandang kong kapatid!

"Be still, and know that I am God" -Psalm 46:10

"If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete." -John 15: 10-11

Yun pa rin ang panalangin ko-- that we will be one as a family who submits under the Lordship of Christ Jesus.

Mahal ko kayo. Salamat po sa lahat-lahat...

one of our trio's unforgettable...

With my two best friends from work...

Before our Baby Sager leaves for Dubai bonding muna kaming tatlo sa Bonifacio High Street!
Yey! Super special thanks sa aming Kuya Mike for the treat, as always!

From Makati, they picked me up in Bonifacio Global City 
Sa bus

Closed pa ang Conti's kaya pitctorial muna. Hehe.

Abnoy (Rajsh) and Tukmol (Mike) Mode

Since di pa bukas pero malapit nang magbukas... Pili muna...

Mga pa-cute habang nag-aantay sa Conti's!

Nung oorder na kami, sabi ni waiter: "Breakfast meal pa lang po available"

We wanted a different meal na di pa pala available kaya umalis kami dun. Teka, piktyur muna.

Si Sager ang nagmukhang toy. Hehe.

Ako naman, aligaga!

Then we saw this... but we opted to check other place to eat.

Sabi ko-- "walked" eh statwa mode pala itong dalawa. LOL

Yan! Walk! LOL

Ayaw nila ako samahan nito pero queber, game pa rin ako pumose! Wahehe!

We saw this cute dog na ayaw lumapit sa yaya nya. Good dog!
Stopped by at Coffee Bean (napagod maglakad) dahil sarado pa ang ibang kainan.

Salamat sa salamin

Kami lang ni Sager ang inorder ni Mike ng drinks

Chai Tea Latte

Pure Double Chocolate

Mike's mom, checking on him. Sweet. Hehe.

From Coffee bean, pictorial muna uli... Shower? No water yet.

Tpos dito rin pala ang bagsak namin! La ibang bukas na nagustuhan eh Haha!

Pili na muna ng food


Waiting for our orders.

Masarap naman ang food pero di reasonable ang presyo.

Walang sawang picture taking.

Last pic before we go home: Sager trying out Mike's shades and Mike, antok ka na?
