Summer Getaway 🎉

6 years ago, on the exact date of August 3-5 year of 2010; me and my family went to Hong Kong. We’ve been there to have a perfect vacation and to treat ourselves also. 

We visited the Hong Kong Disneyland (a theme park located on reclaimed land in Penny’s Bay, Lantau Island). I had so much fun spending my time with my family especially when we also  visited different places in Hong Kong. We saw different tourist attractions, attend some kind of events, and taste different food delicacies.

(Back to the HK Disneyland topic)

The most favorite part of this getaway is happened in Disneyland when we’ve watched the “Disney In the Stars” Fireworks! 🎆 It was a blast! And totally amusing. If I just can only turn back the time, I wouldn’t be exhausted to get there from time to time. Lol.

So guys, if you’re finding some places that you can be relaxed and amused; well I prefer Hong Kong Disneyland! That’s all, joigin! 😘 

Foodies 🙈

Food is essential to our life.

Food is our common ground, a universal experience. Food is needed by the human body for energy, to repair and build cells and to prevent sickness and heal from it.

And yes, it is my favorite part of life. 😉 If you would ask me, well here’s a list of some of the foods that I really love:

  1. Lasagna
  2. Sinigang (Pork Stew)
  3. Beef with Mushroom
  4. Bicol Express
  5. Liempo

If you would notice, I’m not really into seafood’s dishes. Also, I’m not too good in cooking. Hehe. Anyway, here are some tips that I can share with you regarding food:

  1. Buy it with thought.
  2. Cook it with care.
  3. Serve just enough.
  4. Save what will keep.
  5. Don’t waste it. 

That’s all! Please always remember to live, love and EAT.

“Eat whatever you want, and if anyone tries to lecture you about your weight; EAT THEM TOO!” 😂😂

Own Abilities 🎀

Everyone whether rich or poor wants success in life, and to achieve it; we must face the challenges and growing needs of time. Not only positive thoughts but also optimism brings success.

However, success always smiles on able person although it comes through boldness and courage. One may be rich or highly admired, but if he has no abilities he will be living miserably, for success is one form of living a wondrous and healthy life. But, such a way of life can be more lively and pleasurable if we have ability, boldness and courage.

Ability is the state of having a skill, talent or capacity on something. And if you’ll ask, well I can share some of the abilities/skills I have. The first one is playing the instrument of piano. Yes I can read notes, but in some musicians term I’m a so called “widow” or “playing by ear” person. It states that even if I haven’t observed other musician or haven’t been seen the chords/sheet notes, I can play with it by just listening to the music over and over again. Another thing is, I can also sing and dance. Well I’m not too good as professionals are, but I know how to deal with it. Lol. 😜 On the other hand, the abilities that I have includes: creativeness, sociability & has a lot of big ideas.

It is impossible to be successful without abilities but it is also hard to be successful if we are unable to cultivate our gifted qualities which usually remain hidden from the naked eye. So let me tell that, you should believe in yourself. Have faith in your abilities. With a humble and reasonable confidence in your own powers you can be successful and happy! 😉

Thank you! 💗

Saying thank you is often lost in today’s society, but those two little words can make a huge difference in someone’s life.

Everyday there are countless moments when we can say thank you; whether we are given a gift or someone did good to us, but not everyone thinks about it and the words are forgotten.

Being thankful is one of the most important elements for success. It’s the key to experiencing life at its best. This exercise in gratitude empowered me to be thankful in all circumstances. It shifted my outlook about life and opened me up to a level of living that I did not even know was possible. It has changed me as whole person and teaches me to appreciate everything.

When it comes to life meaning, nothing compares to living a life of gratitude. When we are truly grateful, we will find ourselves living with greater purpose and passion. As they say, “Never forget the things you want, make you forget the things you have.” Being grateful will give you meaning because it allows you to capture the full essence of every moment. It takes the burden out of life while adding a dimension of beauty, and it allows you to find contentment even in moments of crisis.

We should make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express our appreciation sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. We should truly appreciate those around us, anything that we have, and anything that we will have in the future. If we truly appreciate life, we will find that we have more of it. 🙏✨

Thank you reading this! Have a great day!

“For you, for us” 🌍

An apology for our future generation. 😒

Sorry if we left you our mess of a planet. I hope you forgive us, we didn’t realize how special the earth was.

We are the root, we are the foundation, this generation, it is up to us to take care of this planet. It is our only home, we must globally warm our hearts and change the climate of our souls and realize that we are not apart from nature, because we are a part of nature. Let us appreciate things that all around us. Its not just for me, but for all of us— and for our future generations.

Sorry if couldn’t play the significant role that HUMAN can.

Sorry for being the “HUMAN” that caused harm to our mother earth.

The earth was too innocent. The earth was too fine. It was marvelous creation, that today cannot find.
And to betray nature is to betray us, to save nature, is to save us.
Because whatever we’re fighting for:
Racism, Poverty, Feminism, LGBT, or any type of Equality.
It won’t matter in the least, because if we don’t all work together to save the environment, we will be equally extinct.

F R I E N D S H I P 👯💞

Everything we’ve had to go through,
And everything still to come.
Hoping we can still stay friends,
And keep each other strong.

When you are worried,
I will give you hope.
When you are confused,
I will help you cope.

I will be a shoulder to cry on,

When times are rough.
I’ ll give an encouraging word,

When you don’t feel good enough.

Thanks for everything,

Your worth far more than gold!

My Favored Author 📝

Movie stars, singers, musicians and many more that make a lot of money and are famous, are admired by teenagers. However, we don’t even know the person or their personality. But some of them expresses their personality by what are doing. An example of these is an author. An author is a person who begins or creates something that gives the privileged moment of individualization in a way of history of ideas, knowledge, literature, philosophy, and the sciences.

Do you know Joanne “Jo” Rowling? Or must known as “J. K. Rowling”? Well, she is one of my favorite writers in my life. Also, she is best known as the author of the Harry Potter fantasy series.  The books have gained worldwide attention, won multiple awards, and sold more than 400 million copies. They have become the best-selling book series in history. And because of this, she has supported different charities.

  And yes, these kinds of books that she wrote are my kind of story too. I really love fantasy stories. (I also do love Daniel Jacob Radcliffe! 😍) Anyway, just for you to share. I almost watched this movie a hundred of times. Lol. I don’t know, maybe because I find magic as an amusing way of getting people’s attention. For me, movie magic is the art of creating things for the big screen, that will take it’s viewers through a whole new experience without ever having to leave their chair.

Many thanks to J. K. Rowling that she filled my imaginations and she teaches each one of us that they can leave their world behind by dropping into one where almost anything is possible. For a few short hours, everything is perfect. The only downfall of that however, is that eventually the story will come to an end, and everyone will have to come back to reality, where things aren’t always so perfect as we have ever imagined. 

S T A Y 💌

I used to wonder about the people coming back after they’ve decided to leave anyway. I used to wait for a long time for the day they come back and realize that they messed up or realize that life is miserable without me. But then I realized that better than all this mess is someone who never leaves  ̶ and chooses to stay.. 💕

Someone who never leaves in your down-times, someone who never leaves when the rain starts falling down on you, someone who never leaves no matter how many other people are trying to get their attention, and someone who chooses to be with you every single day.

You deserve someone who never leaves when you tell them about the things you did that you’re ashamed of and the things that happened back in your memories that you promised not to tell anyone. You deserve someone that loves everything about you -your flaws, imperfections and the things you hated about your past. You deserve someone who never leaves no matter how dark your life gets. You deserve someone who makes you feel something that no one else made you feel before. You deserve someone that tells how special you are and longing for your arms. You deserve someone who is not afraid of the way you love them. You deserve someone who never leaves when they’re at their best, when they can get anyone they want but still choose you, when they don’t even care about exploring all these other ‘options’ to realize your worth because they know what they have and they know that you are one of a kind.  You deserve someone who makes you believe that some people can stay. You deserve someone who reminds you of how you survived, someone who reminds you of your strength, someone who reminds you of your greatness and someone who reminds you that even though you can make it on your own, they want to be there, they don’t want you to be alone this time and they want to fight your battles with you.

Even though we all have that one person we wish to come back, what we really should wish for is someone who will stay. Someone who left before could leave again, but someone who could’ve left but decided to stay is exactly the kind of person you need to be with. “You don’t deserve someone who comes back; you deserve someone who never leaves.” 😊

“Super-Nature” 💚

Our nature teaches us different things. It is all around us, we see it everyday but hardly to appreciate it. We hear it, but never listen to its sweet calls. No wonder that these divine creatures might be gone in any moment. Sadly, we never understood its worth, until our actions started questioning: ‘why floods do come?’, ‘why is that there is “endangered-species?”’, ‘why do we experience terrible things like global warming?’.

Well, there are things that we can learn from our nature. For example is our Sun. Sun gives light, energy, and so on. Sometimes, the sun is covered by the clouds; yet, it does not take away the cloud’s moment of glory. This kind of moment teaches us that-  “when one is greater; and has power and authority, it doesn’t mean that it can take all the things from others all the time.” Another thing, is the rain. Not all of us loves the rain, but sometimes we look forward to break from the heat. Rain does many things like helping the crops to grow, but rain creates messy dirty/slippery roads. Much like our life- beautiful life includes messy and slippery situations sometimes. These situations make us realize the value of everything that we have. They help US to grow, and understand life. Dirty roads don’t make the rain any less lovely, like bad situations shouldn’t make us value and love life any lesser.  ☔️

The questions within our minds can only be answered when we look within, and think if we are satisfied on the world we’re living. Divinity exists in all aspects of life. When we are aware of ourselves, we become aware of what God hath created, big or small. We then learn to live well. And we can become more complete.
