Who is she?

She was made to walk on grass
She was made to move mountains
She was made to conquer battles
She was made to wish on a rainbow
She was made to see the beauty of life
She was made to appreciate art
She was made to shine like the stars
She was made to act like a lady
She was made to taste the wine
She was made to love truthfully
She was made to test the waters
She was made to reach the sky
She was made to defeat anger
She was made to spread joy
She was made to give hope
She was made to make others laugh
She was made to help humankind
She was made to embrace kindness
She was made to touch souls
She was made to praise God

For I am she and will always be

newly weds

The day they said “I DO”

Yesterday was a very lovely day, specially for the newly weds. Jeremy and Karen, thank you for picking me as one of your bridesmaid. Preparing for your wedding was a memorable one not only for me but for your families and friends. Always treasure the day you said “I DO” to each other, I know that you are gonna have a great life ahead. Love you both!

Heed my call

He tangled his feet with mine for a long time

Seemed like he was lost in his own trance

His own train of thoughts

 

His own, deep, train of thoughts

Photo not mine

Then…

He spoke of verses I thought I would never hear from someone

He cried his heart out with honesty and longing

Saying “I don’t want to look for another”

The (mas) kuripot 52-week money challenge: Earning 27k to 137k on barya

Joycelyn:

I have never been good at saving. Must give this one a try! :)

A blog post from Kuripot Pinay on how someone can save almost Php 69,000 a year went viral on my Facebook wall today. The premise is simple: start the first week saving Php 50, and add the same amount every week for 52 weeks. At the end, a person will have Php 68,900.

Fifty pesos seems easy enough to keep weekly, but having to add fifty for 51 more weeks it means that every week from October onwards, you’d have to save at least Php 2,000 a week. Bigat!

So Emerald Ridao came up with modified table, showing how much you’d save with a base amount of Php 20 to a maximum of Php 100.

Pick a base amount and multiply by the number of weeks.

Pick a base amount and multiply by the number of weeks.

Saving Php 20, adding the same amount weekly, will yield a decent Php 27,560 at the end of the year. A thirty peso-base will…

The one who’s always there

Cheers to the night when I can’t sleep and you were available. You seem to know how to communicate to me in a quiet way like no one can do. To the realizations of 2013 and that life will never be the same each passing day. I sip the night away and you were okay with that. Not like the others who wanted and expected more from me. It’s okay to be melancholic around you, or happy, or crazy, or naked. You didn’t care and accepted me for who I am. My sweet cup of coffee… stay with me. Looking forward to more nights and realizations in between. Keep your silence, for my world crumbles up with thoughts that I can’t seem to control at times. I promise to keep this type of relationship with you. :)

I thank God for strangers

I went out of work after Christmas Eve. My mind was spinning around so many different things in each millisecond. To sum it up, I am overthinking again. I was so busy with my own thoughts I barely noticed a lady standing a few feet away from me. Then she said “Merry Christmas” with a big smile on her face. Good thing I was able to respond as soon as possible.

Then realization dawned on me, that strangers are wonderful. Always.

Her husband parked the car perfectly and went to her side. Kissed her. Though there wasn’t enough life for me to see them, I bet they are full of love for each other. They started walking the other way… and this was the photo I got. The lady in her black and white dress and her husband in red polo. They are having the nicest Christmas of their lives, hope you are too.

To my dear readers, Happy Holidays! More love to come!!!
