Whitney Houston - A Source of Inspiration

English: Whitney Houston talking to the audien...Image via Wikipedia
She is legendary. She is such a hero.

She inspired a lot of aspiring singers, including my daughter. Her loss left many people "So Emotional". She was an example of  "The Greatest Love of All". The young ones and the old folks have memorized every line and there were situations where everyone would chorus and at the top of their lungs would shout the lines "And I Will Always Love You". At times when singing seems difficult, her songs had left a message that "When You Believe"...though sometimes "It's Not Right But It's Okay".

May you rest in peace Whitney Houston.

Get Your FREE Blackberry


As the saying goes "There is no such thing as free lunch" I feel like rephrasing it this time to "THERE IS such a thing as FREE BLACKBERRY!"

Yes, this news is something really exciting! I heard it from a friend and checked it out and found out it is something special that Globe is offering as a Christmas present. It's like Santa Clause is coming to town, but it's Globe giving away a Free Blackberry... in my town...or in your town!
Life is really full of blessings and great surprises. I believe most of us are experiencing that, some just don't get notice the small ones even the big ones. But if we try to look back and look around us today, we are always experiencing blessings in the different angles of our lives. 

Like many others I know of, I've been a post paid Globe subscriber since I started using a mobile phone. Few years back, as I was enjoying the easy communication, there were times that I used to wonder how wonderful life would be if mobile phones would be offered at an affordable price and mobile calls and text would be offered for free. Then few years later, Globe made that fantasy a reality!
I kept this handy with me
Through Globe’s unlimited call and text offers, using mobile phone is much more enjoyable. It keeps us close to our family and friends. It keeps us close to our business as well even when we’re not physically there.  And when Globe made the mobile phone something affordable, we were easily able to get another mobile phone and we were able to separate our business contacts from our personal contacts, easy to recognize what call we were getting either it is business or personal.

Staying Globe connected made me always connected with my loved ones, globally! So i just kept the Globe flyers handy with me and I was able to use any perks they have anytime and it gave me a lot of savings due to its afford-ability.
These are just some of the blessings we always enjoy on a daily basis. The benefits we are getting from Globe, something that gives unlimited call and text, and now internet surfing is also unlimited! What more if you get the mobile phone for FREE, and the unit is BLACKBERRY?

We are so blessed indeed!

Singing in the Rain

It's great to play outdoors especially when the roads are dry and you can just wear anything light. But sometimes when it rains, it pulls you back to bed or you would just want to eat and watch TV,  or just chat and be on line. Well, not for these kids, because rain means play and...


Rain seems to be adding some fun.


Kids at play reminds us to enjoy every moment, rain or shine


Here's to your rainy day!

Holy Week Reflections: Grotto and Grow too


Spending a Holy week varies to every individual or family. In a poll I recently asked in facebook, most people would like to spend Holy week by going to spiritually-symbolic or spiritually-enhanced  places. So I'm sharing one of those places I know,  the Grotto in Rosario, Batangas.
On the way to Tombol Hill Grotto


        Engage yourself with Him as you pray and see the life-sized Station of the Cross.








 



As you stroll around outside and walking your way back home, you may find yourself enjoying a clean and safe snack at this cozy,native snack hut.

Some finds it more meaningful to do a spiritual detox in a place that is more serene, more calm, and more close to nature with their family. Whatever way we spend this Lenten week, what matters most is we feel more closer once again to God, walking and growing with Him spiritually.

Here's to your blessed Holy week!

Passion of Christ at Terra Manna

We all have our passions. But some of us doesn't seem to know what our passion really is. If we only knew then, it would be a lot better to know our life's purpose. Just like the Terra Manna Beach Resort and Camping in Cebu, it was built out of the owner's passion in promoting beauty, good health and a better, simpler life.

“Terra” is a Latin word for “earth” and Manna for “bread from heaven” We have been given a place for us to live (Earth), abundant with resources (bread from heaven) for us to be able to sustain ourselves with whatsoever we need. These God given resources are God’s gift to us, so that we may be able to live a life.
Organic Farm at Terra Manna

As Terra Manna is promoting the goodness of the Earth and the love for life, a story of the last twelve hours of our Greatest Provider, Jesus Christ is revived through a film that will be shown in observance of the coming Holy Week. 

Not only that this movie will reignite the love we have for ourselves and humanity, but it will also help us reflect on our own courage, patience, sacrifices, sufferings and our life’s purpose behind all these emotional challenges.

Terra Manna ( Earth. Bread. Life ), a film that will be shown on CCTN  (Cebu Catholic Television Network Channel 47) on Good Friday April 21 and 23, 2011 4:00pm-5:30pm. A successful premiere night was held last April 2 at the Badian Covered Court. The film is directed by Director Al Caballes.


Here's to our passion for life!

Friend

There are a lot of things we can think of when we see or hear the word "friend" .  It is something we want, most of the times we need, and is usually given at different places and situations. We definitely want it to be nourished, and there are many ways to keep a friendship bond strong and make it lasts forever, especially after high school.




It’s easy  when your high school classmates/batchmates are your native neighbors. You grew up together, your  parents are friends and you both lived in your great grandparents  hometown.  But still, opportunities create a way to test your friendship.  Some will have to go to other places, out of town, out of the country and later you’ll realized, you’ve lost contact of each other. But true friendship lies in our hearts. 
No matter how long, no matter how far, once the chances of getting together is just at your fingertips, no distance can block a heart’s desire of sharing those high school friendship memories to one another.
Truly a  homecoming brings back the bond of friendship that was once started in high school and will surely last a lifetime. In this world of 21st century lingo, they’re called your BFF! …your  Best Friends Forever.

BFF secret formula:
  • Be real. Always be true to yourself and to your friends.

  • Acceptance. Love your friend for whoever she/he is.  If you think your friend is not doing the right thing, you can always give a reminder in a very friendly caring way.
  • Avoid Insecurities. We are all created unique from each other.We all have our own strenght, talents and gifts.  We shouldn’t feel insecure for any differences that we see 

  • Be genuinely interested in your friends.
    • Of course not for material reasons, but for reasons that a friend— just like  your partner—completes the missing piece of your puzzle. 


  • Communicate. It doesn’t need to be as regular as with some other friends (such as your officemates, church-mates,  colleagues, neighbors or even blogmates, ), but for as long as you keep in touch once in a blue moon , and you know it in your heart, what matters most is your quality time. You also have to really express yourself. Sometimes it’s done with a drama, but what is important is , you express yourself.

  • Increase your trust and understanding. We always want a friend who understands, and someone whom we know we can trust. Trusting is like giving this person your main door house key  when you have to leave your house for weeks or months. Understanding a friend is like wearing different hats while you’re with your friend. You wear a mommy’s hat, or a sister/brother ‘s hat, or a boss’ hat, or a dog’s hat …whatever you think is necessary.

  • Be proud of your friend. The word “envy” doesn’t exist in the Friendship Dictionary. If you have a moment, let your friend feel you are proud of her/him, especially proud on your friend’s achievements and creative talents.
  • Offer a”real “hand. You know it when a friend needs it. Don’t delay, you can do it in any simple many ways.

  • Divine support. For whatever relationship there is, a consult and support from our Great Creator makes everything  guided. He protects and bless a true friendship.

The list can be endless. Having at least five of them that you keep in heart and mind and apply to your circle of friends, there’s no doubt your friendship will last a lifetime.
  • Friends are treasures. 
  • Here's to your friendly day!
