Pitbull Live in Manila

Wednesday, November 30, 2011
Had a blast tonight with my sissy, BIL and other friends.  We went to watch Pitbull in Araneta Coliseum.    While others were busy recording the whole concert on their phones, we enjoyed watching him on stage while we danced the night away.  

My ticket :-)

Here are two videos from tonight's concert courtesy of YouTube.

And you know what?  Somebody blessed us with free tickets. We had a perfect view of Pitbull... Right in front of the stage.

Happiness! :-)

Fearless Friday

Friday, November 25, 2011


I'd like to participate once again on Angie's Fearless Friday where I can pray for you. If you're not comfortable sharing them here by leaving me a comment, you may email me. Either way, I will commit to pray for you.

This is my prayer request --- Please remember my Mom and Dad in prayer.  My Dad is having radiation therapy five times a week for lung cancer.  My Mom is having dialysis three times a week.  I'm praying and believing God for a miracle for both my parents that they will be healed completely.  I'm also asking God to help them  live a disciplined life everyday.  I believe nothing is impossible with God.  Would you stand with me in prayer and agreement for my parents' healing?

Thank you.

If you like to join us in praying for others, leave Angie a message over at Free Spirit Haven.  

WFW - Joshua 6:2-5

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

I just came home from a wonderful get together/dinner with my friends Babette, Annie and Iris at her and pastor Nuel's house.  We prayed together and talked about how to break through in what we're believing God for. 

It's 1:24 a.m. Kinda late, I know.

Trumpets are not weapons of war.  Trumpets are instruments for praise and worship. Do we want to break through and walk into our "promised land"?  Let's obey God's instruction and continue to praise and worship Him no matter how bad and how impossible our situation looks like.

Hop on to Lori's for more WFW entries. God bless!!!

Total Bliss

Monday, November 21, 2011
It all started two weeks ago when I was consistently having anxiety attacks due to pressure from work and other concerns in life.  I lost my joy. I lost my peace.  And I felt like literally drowning.  The feeling was so horrible I don't even want to feel that way again ever!  Last Thursday, when I went to our weekly prayer and worship night at church, I was rejuvenated.  Thank God I attended.  The corporate prayer, the miracle testimony of a couple in our congregation, the songs of praise and worship to God lifted my wearied spirit. 

I went about my work again the following day.  I still had the same concerns, nothing really changed, but my outlook was very different this time.  Let's just put it this way... I'm on fire for God... Really trusting Him and holding on to His hand... and I'm not about to let go.  

Something strange happened though.  But I will write about it probably in my next post.  

Dad is fine, but a bit weak, because of his radiation therapy.  He's trying his best though to stay strong by eating the right food and taking his meds on time.  Mom, on the other hand, was rushed to the ER yesterday because she had difficulty breathing.  Her lungs were congested.  She was given meds and had her dialysis this morning.  Mom is okay now.  Please continue to pray for my parents.  I'm grateful that they are okay today.  That, in itself, is a blessing and I'm grateful.

Anyway, today was a great day.  Went to watch my most awaited movie of the year, Breaking Dawn - Part 1 with my dear friend, Melo.  The movie hadn't even started yet and my popcorn was almost gone. I gulped down my Coke so fast that I had to go to the john just when the engrossing scenes were about to be shown. Argh!!!   Talk about rotten timing!

I'm a self-confessed Twilight junkie. I didn't expect to like the film so much, but I do.  

Anyhow, I feel so great tonight that I'm in total bliss.  I love this feeling and hope everyday will be like today, if not better.  And I have God to thank for making me a sunshine girl today.

Family Reunion

Sunday, November 6, 2011
After four years, I went back to my Mom's home town, at my grandparents' house. I saw a lot of changes in the house. I was feeling a bit nostalgic. Anyway, I was happy to see my aunts and uncles, cousins and nieces again. Many weren't there last November 1 and wished they were. Aunt Juliet came home from California. 

My Mom's siblings. 
L-R: Uncle Dan, Aunt Thelma, Aunt Juliet, Mom, Aunt Tess & Aunt Marita

My relatives

One thing I looked forward to coming back here was the food.  My aunts are such good cooks.  We had my fave Sinigang, Rellenong Bangus (Stuffed Milkfish), Bopis, Inihaw na Tilapia at Hito (grilled Catfish) with rice and then Ginatan, Suman and Cassava cake for desert.  Yummy!!! 

We all had Rellenong Bangus and Embutido packed to bring home. Thanks to Aunt Marita and Aunt Tess for preparing these take home goodies for us!  

With my cousin, Bing

Filipinos are known for balikbayan boxes, those huge boxes full of goodies to be distributed as gifts to family and friends back home. This isn't new to us. Aunt Juliet brought home a balikbayan box full of chocolates, branded clothing, toiletries, etc.  Everybody gathered around and waited for their turn to get something.  Well, I got my fave... a bottle of lotion. *Grin*

Though we all missed my Lolo and Lola, we still tried to enjoy the moment and kept their memories alive.
