I'm baaack, after a 5-month absence! In this post, I share my story of how and why my graduation delayed by a year, and why I'm really, really grateful for it. 🙂
In my previous post, I talked about feeling quite depressed over my lack of inactivity and my feeling of uselessness, as I stayed home in most days. Turned out I was just bored and that I needed to change my perspective and attitude. God was preparing me for something bigger, better, and busier. Last week, … Continue reading Perfection-er
Earlier this evening, I browsed through my Facebook news feed and saw the various activities of my friends in church and blockmates in school: attending & witnessing a prestigious awards ceremony in the media industry; going to the beach with friends; volunteering in the freshmen orientation; attending youth group (ELEVATE) meetings. After a few minutes … Continue reading Missing Out On Life?
Ever since I was a little girl, I've always dreamt of driving my own car, or just driving a car, really. It was so cool being behind the wheel (or the manibela in Filipino), steering it whichever way you wish. That dream of becoming a non-professional driver should have been fulfilled summer last year if … Continue reading I’ve Got The Drive!
Last Sunday (Easter Sunday) and today were amazing. God gave me the privilege of doing one of the things I love the most: hosting or emceeing. Last Saturday evening, I received a text message from my cousin, Miko, asking me if I can host an event on Easter Sunday, 4 pm. Immediately, I thought of … Continue reading The Host is Yet to Come

If his name doesn't ring a bell, go to the end of this post and watch him sing my favorite song of his, "Forgiven and Loved." Seriously, stop. However, if you … Continue reading Jimmy Needham Concert & A Lesson on Appetite
Ever since I was a kid, I would always be excited to eat breakfast (not that I'm not ever excited to eat...just extra excited) when I would see a brown paper bag containing warm, soft pandesal on our dining table. Pandesal (Spanish pan de sal or "salt bread") is not really salty at all (at … Continue reading Good Morning Garlichippy Pandesal!
It's only the second day of thew new year and already I can think tens of things to thank God for: good health of my family and friends. School resumes tomorrow (yes I'm thrilled). Allowance! (now you know why) My favorite sun-dried peanuts (sung song). The will to diet. Cool weather. Smell of roasted chicken. … Continue reading This 2014, I Will Be LAST

On our way home tonight, my brothers and I were having a conversation. James, our youngest, out of the blue, told us he hasn't tasted or seen unleavened bread, and then he asked me why it was so flat. "Well because it doesn't have yeast, so it's flat. It doesn't rise like normal bread." Hearing … Continue reading Ms. Right
