Life BEGINS at the END of your COMFORT ZONES….

Month of MAY is already ended, my birth month already passes by.

Untitled

As I added up another year to my age it makes me want to TRAVEL more while I CAN.

It makes me want to wonder around in places where I want to see and explore.

It makes  me want to meet people in every walks of LIFE.

It makes me want to LIVE my LIFE to the FULLEST.

I may say that another lesson I’ve learn is:

“Be HAPPY not because everything is GOOD, but because you can see the GOOD side of everything.”

You may see the GOOD side of everything when you learn how to APPRECIATE and be THANKFUL for all the BLESSINGS that you receive.

Challenging myself….(thru travel)

I realize the reality of LIFE to my recent SOLO travel

It was my ever SOLO travel abroad.

And while browsing the NET saw this travel Quote

“You have no IDEA who you are until YOU experience yourself through different PEOPLE,

And realize HOW we’re all the SAME”

Missing Them… :(

Missing Them Both…

Saw an Old Couple seating in front of me, while looking outside the jeepney…

As I look at them, I miss my Nanay(mom) & my Tatay(dad)…

Thinking that if they are still here beside me, maybe just maybe we are happy talking anything under the sun…

Miss that moment that we are happy even in a simplest way 😦

Haist… but still I know they are together now in heaven looking down at me saying

“Miss na naman tayo ng Anak Mo”..

Miss you Nanay & Tatay don’t worry I know masaya na kayo dyan (no more pains/sadness).

Thank you for all the good memories.. I LOVE YOU Both !!!

A Place to be Yourself.

Another hands-up to NHK world Japan today.

Especially “The Professional”……..”A Place to be Yourself”

Tadasuke Kato, Care Center Manager.

Making me watch this episode makes me cry a lot tonight for a reason that I missed my parents. My Nanay(mother) and my Tatay(father).

By watching all the elderly that was taking care of Mr. Tadasuke Kato makes me cry because I missed my parents and makes me realize how thankful I am for them. For taking care of me and raising me for who I am. And I am thankful that I am with them till their last breath.

We are not a perfect family of 3 but I know that I love them and I know that they love me for the best of our ability.

No matter what happens we must always think how they sacrifice everything just for Us.

I just want to tell everyone that we must Love our Parents as long as they are with Us because you’ll never know when will they leave Us.

Thank you Mr. Tadasuke Kato “A Place to Feel at Home Changes People”

So true, nothing beats that if you are openly welcome to a place that is new to you.

Siem Reap Cambodia (1st day)

 

Three Ladies roaming around Cambodia.

It’s  always a dream for me since I was young to visit a sacred places like Churches, Temples and some Buddhist Temples.

That’s why as you can observe whenever it’s our first time in other places and countries we see to it that we can visit some catholic churches.

I been eyeing to visit Japan for a Temple visits (inspired by watching NHK Japan) this year that’s why I’m always looking forward to a seat sale in some airlines. But fortunately we cannot book it this year but still we are waiting for that time to come (fingers crossed).

But one of my dream came true and it is visiting a Temples and fortunately it is in Siem Reap Cambodia.

I booked a flight from Cebu Pacific in Siem Reap last February 25-28, 2016 with my 2 Girl Friends. This is the first time that we will travel just the 3 of Us. Because we usually travel with group of friends.

Hmmm… February 25, our flight going to Siem Reap. We arrived at around 2130. And touchdown I saw this cute airplane( i don’t know what airline).

We meet Mr. SEY who’s the owner of the “tuktuk” that will serve as our service whole thru out our stay in Siem Reap.

Check-in at the Parklane Hotel (good rating at tripadvisor) which my friend book it almost a month or two at Agoda.com

Tel: +855 (0) 63 967 676 | +855 (0) 63 967 677 | +855 (0) 97 92 52 233

Here is the itinerary that my friend made (as you can see this is just our first day) :

Feb 26  (Saturday)

As stated Mr. SEY is our official “tuktuk” driver that will bring us to the Temples.

He pick us up exactly 0500am(for us to not experience a crowded or long line buying a 3days temple Pass).

  • Cambodia Tourist Center (3days temple Pass) = $40.00/pax
  1. Angkor Wat (Sunrise)

I have nothing to say about what we experience this day. As in WOW it is amazing to see a sunrise behind the Angkor Wat. Having an Orange Sunrays and amazing blue sky and a cloud flowing in the sky.

After seeing the sunrise at Angkor Wat we headed out at a Restaurant near Angkor Wat. Our breakfast :

This is the first part of our very looong day in Siem Reap….

Take note just the first day and I can’t seem to put all the beautiful pictures that I took during this day…

Holy Week 2016

I usually had a Visita Iglesia by myself and the other one is with my Family.

I usually planned it ahead of time in where to go and how I could reach them.

But this year I don’t know what happen.. (i’m not that busy nor doing anything)

Fortunately, because I am to lazy to look or search to where I go. I already decide to go with the flow where my foot will bring me.

Palm Sunday (March 20, 2016): Today we remember Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem. We attend mass at Our Lady of Lourdes in Tagaytay with my family.

Holy Monday: Visit the Sto. Niño de Paz and pray in the afternoon I visited Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel in BDO building and pray.

Holy Tuesday: Visit the Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel in BDO building and pray in the afternoon I visited Sto. Niño de Paz and pray. Then as I pass thru the walkway in Sto. Niño de Paz I read the announcement regarding to the veneration of Padre Pio and a talk with Padre Gianmaria diGiorgio tomorrow wednesday.

Holy Wednesday: I still did my usual Visita on my own but not like last time that I visited 7 churches for a reason that it is to late for me to have an urgent Leave in muy Office. So what I did I skip my lunch and visited St. Andrew the Apostle-Makati which I did my usual station of the cross (1-4 station). PhotoGrid_1458733731831

Then in the afternoon I went to the Sto. Niño de Paz fortunately Padre GianMaria is late because of the traffic from manila which he said he visited Archbishop Luis Antonio Tagle. but of course the chapel is already Jampacked thats why I already standing at the back but it’s okay it is one of my penitence.The veneration of Padre Pio’s relic started so I said to myself “pag nahawakan ko ang relic I am very blessed” because on my part attending the mass and seeing it even it is to far from me I am already blessed. Kasi nga sa dami ng tao I already told to myself na “let them be, mas marami ang me sakit at kailangan ang presensya ni Padre Pio”. So yun but to my surprise while going with the flow of the people I already found myself lining up near the relic. I am blessed because I kiss and hold the relic and the only thing I pray is ” Thank you for all the blessings and guidance“. Then after awhile the mass started with Padre Gianmaria and Father Cescon who holds the mass .

Thank You 🙂 …

Maundy Thursday: Visita Iglesia with my family. We visited 7churches in Manila we started of to Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Baclaran, Our Lady of Remedies in Malate, Sta. Cruz Church in Sta. Cruz, Minor Basilica of Black Nazarene in Quiapo, San Lorenzo Ruiz-Binondo, San Agustin Church in Intramuros and lastly is Manila Cathedral.

Good Friday: Stay at home do the usual that my Mom told me. Just eat vegetables and Fish then take a bath before 3:00pm (i don’t know why-but still I follow it till now). And listen or watch the Seven Last Words.

Simple but a Meaningful Holy Week 2016

Documentary

I’m glad to watch NHK world Japan.

Specifically a programs that everyone should know:

A documentary:

The professionals

The Long way is the Best Shortcut Tadatoshi Takayama, Liver Surgeon

Tireless Devotion to Animals Live Motokazu Hasuoka, Veterinarian

Ikuko Nakamura, Home Care Dietitian

For me it is such an inspirational documentary that I watch and I learn that life is so precious. And we still have to live our life to the fullest .

Just so sad because I can’t do anything so special to inspire other people. That’s why just sharing my part to everyone that life is beautiful that we have to treasure everything that we have right now as of the moment, because we don’t know when will it be gone.

 

Sto. Niño de Cebu

A picture of Sto. Niño de Cebu(112710)

Sto. Niño de Cebu at Greenbelt (013016)

Yesterday after my overtime I stopped by at Sto. Niño de Paz at Greenbelt and I saw the image of Sto. Niño de Cebu at the altar. I was so happy to see it even Im not in Cebu. Hahahaha I always dreamt of going to Cebu during this season. Because Third Sunday of January is always celebrated as the Feast day of the Sto. Niño. When I was a child I was always looking forward to that Sunday morning in our place. Because we also celebrate it with a morning mass followed by a what you so-called  KARAKOL(religious dance procession). It usually end up during lunch time. And then in the evening there is still a procession of Sto. Niño followed by an evening mass and a Fireworks. Well before the month ends I just want to share how happy I am to have Sto. Niño at my side. I always pray to him everytime I’m happy, sad, glad, and when I am lost and no one to share my loneliness. Because Sto. Niño is always at my side. Anyways Thank you always for all the blessings and pray for me Sto. Niño ♥♥♥. I♥U.

My SO has got Depression

Original title:
ツレがうつになりまして。

Transliterated title:
Tsure ga Utsu ni Narimashite.

Release date:
October 8, 2011

Summary:
Mikio (Masato Sakai) is a married man and works hard for the company where he is employed. Then one day Mikio is diagnosed with depression. Mikio’s wife is Haruko (Aoi Miyazaki). They have been married for 5 years. Haruko draws comics for work, but they do not sell well. She mainly relied on Mikio for support. Meanwhile, Haruko did not notice any changes in her husband. She begins to blame herself for not noticing any signs. Mikio’s depression derived from his work. His company has been pressing him to quit the company. After Mikio quits his job his condition improves, but the dynamics of their relationship changes. [Source: AsianWiki.com].

I know it’s already been 4years and 3months to be exact since it was shown.

But still we have a lesson to be learned in this movie.

I like how Haruko took care of Mikio despite of his depression.

How they’ve been test with their daily lives and love for each other.

And also how Haruko fight with depression.

Thumbs Up with this movie
