You Are My Reason


When we met, I never dreamed how much my life would change, how much your love could touch every part of my life. I didn’t realize what I had been missing. I never imagined how wonderful I could feel, how truly alive my spirit could become.

I will see your place soon!

You have awakened in me my feelings I never knew existed. You have helped me see a whole new world of possibilities again. Because you came into my life, my soul is filled with tender passion and my heart has found the sweetest love I could have ever wished for.

I can't wait to see you. I can't wait to spend our lifetime together.

 The essence of giving and sharing

 Happy me

one down, one more bag to go 


I often asked myself, What is my purpose? What is the life I want to have? What are the things that would makes me happy? Kadalasan madami akong gustong gawin na may kasama ngunit sa pagkakataon na ito mag-isa akong pumunta ng Red Cross Quezon City Chapter. Madaming beses na akong nakapagbigay ng dugo but this time around I shared it with Red Cross.

As a person, It was my daily struggle finding the right direction because every time I knew exactly what I want things changed unexpectedly. Perhaps, it's God way of saying trust me more and have more faith on me. I believed there are so many ways to honor HIM, and I want to serve HIM by doing voluntary works. I have to make my life more meaningful, and I want to do what is the real purpose why I am here on earth.

Nothing matters more than knowing my purpose in life.

You Are My Gift


You Are My Gift
(By: Gemma B. Comiso)


A lost girl found direction,
In the man she’s been waiting,
She travelled rough road,
But now she is secure.

Her heart is now at peace,
She is pampered with love at its best,
Her pain has been washed away,
He helped him the best person she can be.

His love is now her armor,
His concern is her inspiration,
That in spite of her imperfection,
He remains true and faithful.

Honey, I wanted to tell you,
In words of my own,
You’re the most precious person
That I’ve ever known.

Date with Nins @SM Center Point


My planned was to watch the movie (World War Z) but since she had watched it last week we landed on having a feast at Pizza Hut, SM Center Point. We had fun and enjoyed each others company. We shared inner thoughts and she was eager listening to all the struggles (bitter sweet journey) in my schooling. Nins has substance. She has an "IT", her flamboyant personality and witty smile always attracts me. She is well breed and God fearing.

Bought it from SM National Bookstore

Pizza Hut

"Tita Bhing, Thank you so much for today. Please don't change and don't be sad anymore. There is more to life. You're a great person and I am sure anyone would love you. If you need someone to talk to or bond with you, I am just call away. You will always be part of our family Tita. I love you and take care! I am proud of you Tita. Mwahh! "

Gosh, napaluha ako when I read her text message. Ang bait nila talaga sa akin. God has been my witnessed. I am lucky  and blessed enough.

 Who is the cutest?

 Lazy! @ natulog in his bath tub!

Please be careful.

We have a visitor, Is there any food for us? haha!


Matagal ko nang gusto maging volunteer sa PAWS pero dahil sa busy scheduled ko sa school and OJT hindi ko nagagawa. I am a certified cat lover. May kakaibang charisma sa akin ang mga pusa kahit anu pa ang hitsura nila o kung pusang kalye man sila wala akong hesitation sa kanila.

Nag-umpisa ang pagiging mahilig ko sa pusa sa murang edad ko pa lamang. As early as 6 yrs old (as far as I remember) may pusa na akong inaalagaan. Sa umpisa ayaw ni Mama dahil hikain ako, bawal sa akin makalanghap ng balahibo nila pero pinagbigyan pa rin nila ako dahil talagang nakikita nila how I adored kittens. 

Madami na akong napuntahan at nasamahan para maging volunteer pero ang karanasan ko sa PAWS ay isa sa hindi ko makakalimutan. Siguro dahil hilig ko talaga ito o sadyang nangingibabaw sa akin ang pagiging pet lover. Samut-sari din ang kwento sa loob ng kanilang kulungan. Ang iba ay rescued pets, at ang iba ay totally abandoned. As of June 10,2013 256 cats and 67 dogs are looking for a homes. I have plans to adopt the kitten I saw in Quarantine Area. I even named her Gumamela. Sana makuha ko siya bago matapos ang buwan.

I am loving my chosen craft. This job is self fulfilling and very rewarding in a sense that I am privileged enough and has a peculiar effect not only for others but for my whole being. It created a huge impact in my life. Tending to the needs of the patient always bring joy and happiness to me. 

My experienced at Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center is life-changing because every I've learned the value of friendship and love. I got the chanced in saving my patient's life by donating my own blood. Walang katumbas na saya ang naramdaman ko sa mga oras na iyon. It feels like iyong buhay ko ay may direction at purpose. Naramdaman ko din ang pagkakaiba ng pribado at pampublikong hospital. It's depressing but as a nurse I have to composed myself and act on professional manner. Emotions were mixed especially that JRRMMC is a public institution. I was used to private scenario in JRRMMC, it was different.

My patient case is Nasoethmoidal Meningocele and Club Foot. He is 17 yrs old from Zambales. It is an inborn abnormalities. According to Mayo Clinic site Clubfoot describes a range of foot abnormalities usually present at birth (congenital) in which your baby's foot is twisted out of shape or position. In clubfoot, the tissues connecting the muscles to the bone (tendons) are shorter than usual. The term "clubfoot" refers to the way the foot is positioned at a sharp angle to the ankle, like the head of a golf club. Clubfoot is a fairly common birth defect and is usually an isolated problem for an otherwise healthy newborn. Nasoethmoidal Meningocele is a mass in the base of the nose which exist between nasal bone and nasal cartilages.

Before the operation he was advised for NPO (nothing by mouth). June 17, 2013 @ 7am the patient was brought to the OR, lasted for 3 hours and 5 hours at the recovery room. He was transferred in his ward at 3pm. The patient was conscious and very aware. The first thing he asked was to have water but he wasn't allowed yet. First night after the operation he was asleep most of the time and for the 2nd day he talked about his experienced in the OR (how does it feel to be there, what was his fear before the operation, complains a lot about the catherization, how his body became numb when the anesthesia was inserted and etc.)

This job offered me a good salary, since his mother is my friend and Taiwan I've decided not to get a penny. I want it to be a voluntary work since I had an allowance and a dorm to lived, it was an easy job for me. His mother showered me with gifts, perfume, make up kit, 3 sets of scrub suit more than enough in the salary I've supposed to get. 

Yesterday was my last duty, because I had a prior commitment that can't be put on hold. It was my job interview and qualifying exam (lucky me, I've passed. Mag-aantay na lang ako ng tawag para magsimula) Pagdating ko sa bahay from work, binuksan ko ang aking bag to my surprised Vicky did still gave me a salary. It was more than I could imagined. God really is great. HE works in unexpected way. 

" The importance of things can be measured by how much time are are willing to invest in them. The more time you give to something, the more you reveal its importance and value to you. If you want to know a peron's priorities, just look at how they use their time. Time is you most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. Whenever you give your time, you are making a sacrifice and sacrifice is the essence of love"  (The Purpose Driven Life)

I Love You


Tonight I will shout to the world how lucky I am to have you. I would really love to say this in person while holding you tight in my arms and gazing into your eyes. But since we are physically separated by miles of emptiness, this expression must come in the form of letters such as this. I miss the thrill of having someone at my side.

 If right at this moment someone would ask me to describe my idea of perfect man, or perfection with out any doubt I would begin describing you because in you I found the perfect blend of everything that I was looking for in a man. You are caring, attentive, loving and protective, all the things that make you a person I want to spent my life with you.

There's nothing I look forward to more than spending the rest of our lives together. I love everything about you, from your indifference to your insanity. I can't even begin to fathom my life without you. I can see myself growing old with you. You are the driving force behind what makes me complete and satisfied in everything I have. I learned to be more appreciative now. Your humbleness makes a great deal to me especially the simplicity of your life. You are there when the world collides in my shoulder, when every thing seems not right, and when every one has something to say against me but you give me comfort and security. For that you had given me assurance that no one has ever provided. I have no other that I could hold on to like I hold on to you.

I will wait for you. Thank you for inspiring me every day. You understood me so well and knew exactly what i wanted. With you Honey I believe in the magic of love, in the magic of being able to talk through hours of silence and even though we might not say anything our hearts our totally in sync and they know exactly what things are like.

I love you more than I ever imagined I could love anyone. The longer I am away from you, the stronger is my yearning to be with you. Until that moment arrives, I send to you across the miles, my tender love, my warm embrace and my most passionate kiss. I love you so much!

I will remain strong with so much faith in HIM.

With humility and humbleness, I bow my head. Guide me Lord in my future endeavors, mold me and make me your obedient servant.
