SIXTY: Day 60

Sixty Random Things About Me

My high school friends and I were supposed to go on a Boracay Trip for this month in celebration of mine and Wella's 27th birthday. Unfortunately, due to "Habagat" typhoon, it was unanimously decided to cancel the trip and have it on December or some time next year.

So today, I decided to spend my 27th birthday helping out our Head Pastor and few other members who willingly gave their hands, too, in renovating our humble little church. This church improvement that we are currently having at the moment are preparations for the upcoming 12th anniversary of our church, Jesus Christ The Prince Of Peace.

For the very first time in my 27 years of existence, this was the most memorable birthday I had. Though there was nothing so grand happened, unlike from the previous birthdays I've had, this was a lot different. Way, way different. I felt like I was doing something BIG. Something enormously special. I was like doing something with a purpose. With a cause. A cause for Jesus Christ. For my savior and healer. And, it felt so nice. Surprisingly nice.

For my birthday, I only wish to give back all the thanks and glory to God who gave me the privilege to worship and praise Him and who gave me the right to become His child.

"Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God —" John 1:12 (New International Version)

Happy Birthday to Me!♥

SIXTY: Day 59

Sixty Random Things About Me

She turned eighty-four last June. She's the most caring, thoughtful, and loving mother of six and an extra sweet grandmother to all her grandchildren. Elena, that's her name. Lola E to some people but to her family, she is our "Nanay Elena."

Almost all of us, her granchildren, grew up in her care to which explain the closeness we have with her. I even claim to be a "Lola's little girl" instead of being Mama's girl or Daddy's little girl. She is my second real mother. In fact, she has been our second mother, literally, for six years now since my parents went abroad. She took good care of me and my little sister. She was always there for us. She never failed to be there and assist and prepare all our needs. She truly is a very good person and has a genuine heart as big as you can imagine. I love her like I've always have for my mama.

If I grow old someday, I wanna be like her, a devouted mother and grandmother, very loving, kind, extra sweet and super thoughtful. Always there for her children and her family. May the Lord bless her with good health, peace of mind and a happy heart.

I love you, Nanay Elena! You're the best Lola in the whole wide universe! :)

I've always felt like I have a good angle skill in photography. When I first got my Iphone, a gift from my sister who lives in Australia, I learned to edit pictures through some applications I downloaded via Apple.

And here is my top five: (Portfolio kuno..haha)

SIXTY: Day 53

Sixty Random Things About Me

I don't easily get bored especially to things I truly love doing. Ako yung tipo ng tao na hindi madaling magsawa. And it doesn't mean that I'm afraid to try new things. In fact, I love changes. For the past one and half year, I've gone from long wavy brown(ish) hair to straight red hair to long curly hair back to straight shoulder length burgundy hair again with bangs to medium bob cut light brown hair and now to a super, super short black hair. See, I'm not afraid to change. =) Sometimes I call it "bravery." Hahaha! Bravery my ass! LOL.

From long wavy brown(ish) hair:

to long straight red hair:

to long curly hair:

back to straight shoulder length burgundy hair with bangs:

to medium bob cut light brown hair:
to extra super short black hair:

All in a span of one year and half! Wheeew!!!^_^ Na-stressed na ang hair ko sakin. Hahaha!!!

Seriously, these are the things, places, movie or food or just anything under the sun that I would never ever get bored to do:

1. Even if there are a bunch of new Italian resto to try, nothing beats my favorite Baked Zitti in Alfredo or white sauce in Sbarro. ;-)
2. I would never ever get tired to listen to Sunday Morning of Maroon 5, Sleep All Day by Jason Mraz, Ocean Drive, High and Free of Lighthouse Family and Alanis Morisette's Head Over Heels. Old school is cool! Hahaha!
3. The movies I've seen for more than five times already: Shakespeare In Love, Under The Tuscan Sun, Runaway Bride, While You Were Sleeping and Never Been Kissed.
4. Ordering Cheeseburger meal in McDonalds.
5. Ang walang kasawa-sawang Gambazetti sa Bigoli, Seafood Marinara sa Napoli's, Cheese/White Cheese Pizza sa Sbarro, Caramel Macchiato or Raspberry Currant sa Starbucks, Burger Steak ng Jollibee (haha), Bunch of Lunch ng Shakey's (haha), Whopper Jr. meal ng Burger King at Pork Tonkatsu meal na may kasamang order ng California Maki at extra veggies ng Tokyo Tokyo. Hahaha! Gluttony at its finest!
6. At kahit usong uso na ang pirated DVDs na nabibili sa Quiapo at nagkalat kung saan saang tiangge, uso pa rin sakin ang pagrent ng VCD or DVD sa Video City. Hahaha! Actually, ang dami kong membership cards nila kasi lagi kong nawawala. Tapos at the end of the day, makikita ko nasa drawer lang pala. I have more than 10 membership cards, tatlo nasa wallet ko! Bwahahaha!!!
7. Magpicture! Hahaha. Self-confessed camwhore queen! ;p Pero hindi ako photogenic ha! Feelingera lang. lol
8. Red nails on my feet. Most of the time laging red lang talaga ang kulay ng polish ko sa paa, if not, pink.
9. Monggo sprout or Toge at Adobong Manok. Hindi ako magsasawa sa dalawang ulam na yan, PROMISE! Hahaha. ;D
10. Manood ng mga series at Koreanovelas. :P

I often received a lot of comments before kay ex-boyfie kung hindi raw ba ako nagsasawa (mapa-pagkain o kahit sa anong bagay) and I always replied, "Hinde, bakit naman ako magsasawa?" Eventually we end up separating ways..ayun, nagsawa siguro sakin! Bwahaha!!! Ang mahuli magsawa, talo! LOL ☺☺☺

SIXTY: Day 52

Sixty Random Things About Me

Music and singing goes hand in hand, right? However, in my case the dedication, passion and mad love I have for singing is the exact opposite I have for music. Does that make sense? Hahaha. I know, I truly am weird in my own ways. It's just that music is really not my thing. I am not the person who listens to the radio or search the net to check the latest songs in the music chart and download them. I sing whatever I feel like singing, may it be old songs or new, I don't care. Hahaha. I don't even update myself to the latest song there is. If I happen to hear them when I walk down the streets, that's the only time I would learn it's a new song. But when I ask my sister about it, she would tell me that it was out for three months already. Hahaha!

Well, I don't really care if I am totally unaware of the latest trending in music. What I do really care is my singing voice. Hahaha! I just sing to my heart's content. And I am so thankful to the Lord for giving me something I could be very passionate about--SINGING. At ito talaga ang latest, at hindi ito chismis lang..haha! I'm using my voice and my singing prowess to serenade my one and true love and the only savior of this world, Christ Jesus. ♥

Eleven years later.

Felt like it was yesterday when I first held hand with the cutie little Japanese baby boy my eldest sister brought home along with my father. Every single memory of this HapNoy kiddo (Hapon + Pinoy, my very own version haha!) growing up from a stubborn toddler to a smart biggie boy were all fresh in my memory. Instantly, I fell in love with the kid the moment her mother temporarily entrusted the little warrior's custody to us while she left abroad to work. From then on, I took part, played my role as a mother, aunt, guardian and friend. And today, as he celebrate his eleventh year of existence, I couldn't get any prouder for he grew up just as what I expected him to be, smart, sweet, kind-hearted young boy, well-mannered.. who by the way is also a self-confessed Christian like me. :)

HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY, AKIKO! I thank God for your life. May you grow to know Jesus a lot more. Let's continue to serve the Lord together. Just keep the faith and diet-diet rin, aryt? Hahaha! Good job, anyway! You really make Tita Ness so proud of you! I love, love, love you the most!!!♥ *HUGS*

Here comes my favorite Month :)

I'm an August baby, no wonder it's my favorite. Haha! I consider it my love month and the month I am most thankful.♥

It's been my habit to prepare a Thank You Letter to Jesus few weeks before my birthday arrives and leave it to the altar of any church I visit on the day of my birthday. Since it's my first birthday as a Christian, I wonder what to do with the letter. Hmmm..

Anyways, happy first day of August everyone!☺

With my little brother in Christ & my Bassist, Angelo. :)
