I’m over on Rappler again today, yakking about how fashion makes us foolish. Go have a look and tell me if you’re guilty. :)
Here are a couple more drawings from the piece…
Plus a bonus one of me with Little Orphan Annie that didn’t make it to the article. It cracked me up though… and I really do think she has a point.
A smile is the best accessory ever. :)
Happy Monday, peeps!

OMG! February will end in a few minutes.. Amazing how time flies really fast especially when you’re having fun or should I say if you’re taking life lightly and you just count the blessings, thinking how God has been faithful to you.
I knew that this month would be a LOVE month. And indeed, I’m happy to share here some of the highlights of what has happened to me for the past 28 days.
We went to Baguio with hubby, hubby’s family and church friends. I knowww I’ve been to Baguio for the nth time, but this time was extra special and has a different story.
Erick & I agreed to have quality time together and set a separate time to be with friends & family.
I’ve been to Baguio with Erick for how many times but we haven’t had the chance to visit/ try the tourist spots here. We had our itinerary and set a day to go to The Lion’s head in Kennon Road, boating in Burnham Park, The Mansion, Diplomat Hotel, etc… Good thing, Erick was game.
On our First Day, we had our catch up time with our good friend Darryl.
Breakfast at The Manor and then dinner with DJ’s family at Chaya.
Second day, tourist mode! :)
BURNHAM PARK :)
THE DIPLOMAT HOTEL
Second day- afternoon.. merienda with friends & family at PNKY.
and the sweetest thing that had happened was on our 3rd day. Before Iko leaves for Japan, Albert decided to take their relationship to the next level. Albert proposed to Iko at Radar Mount <3
Mission Accomplished! We went home re-charged.. and ready for our next adventure.
This month marks our 6th month of being INDEPENDENT. Hubby & I rented for 6 months a 21sqm studio type room. We learned to love this small place. It was a haven for us. But God wanted us to expand our territory. Last Feb 8, we were blessed to transfer to a one bedroom unit. We’ve been praying for this.. Finally we have our bedroom. Sofa bed was out and we can now rest on a normal bed. For just 6 months, we have already invested on some things so we really needed a bigger place. We now have space for X-box and kinect. We can now accommodate 6 to 8 visitors for our care group. We were also grateful for a big cabinet! :D
February 14 was my first Heart’s Day as a married woman. And that day was also our 10th wedding monthsary. We had a free dinner with family since payday was on the 15th pa :D
It was also on the 14th my last day of work in 2Go. I just started working at my new job last Feb 18. It was a leap of faith to take this new challenge. I’m still in adjustment period. Still overwhelmed with new responsibilities as Marketing Executive.
The hardest part has been commuting from home to office.. I need to wake up early now and leave home by 7am. Lining up & squeezing my self into the MRT requires a long strand of patience or else I will give up this work.. But God impressed on me that I’m blessed enough that I am able to wake up early, dress-up and commute. That I have a decent work and have this chance to regain my self-worth again.
So every time I feel like giving up I always look back at this verse “There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears” Philippians 1:6
Last highlight for this month was just last week.. I know it’s “mababaw” but it’s been a decade since my last visit to the Enchanted Kingdom! Haha
My first EK with hubby together with church friends. We rented a van and were able to get discounted tickets. Nothing much changed except for some new rides like Disc-o-Magic and The Tower ( you have to try these rides!!!) It was a tiring day but we had fun.
Tomorrow will be different. I may not know yet what will happen for the coming days but I’m now offering everything to God.
Happy Evening and goodnight!
“Being appreciated is a man’s primary need. He measures his worth through his achievements, big and small, and needs them to be recognized”
So here I am giving my husband a recognition for a job well done in cooking omelet. Haha!
For almost three years of knowing Erick, I witnessed his omelet from a disaster to an ideal perfect-folded one.
I know how Erick works. He is serious & focused. That goes the same when he makes omelet.
TRIVIA: You know he is serious when he starts to pout his lips.
Imagine him pouting while cracking the eggs, beating, sauteing the ingredients and folding it nice and slow.
Here I am sharing to you The Evolution of Erick’s Omelet (drum-roll)
I’m so impressed.. Proud wifey!
And here’s our sink, after…
I wrote this one month before I got married..
Hmm… this is to reminisce what I’ve been through for the past 30 years of single-hood.
I have made impulsive decisions which had taught me to slow down and re-assess the outcomes.
I’ve been into relationships which taught me to love, trust, trust and trust and I was betrayed and then neglected by people whom I trusted.
I’ve been to different places.
I’ve had a near-death experience when the car I was driving was hit by a truck.
I am in awe of how God held my life.
I experienced a lot. And it made me a better person as the years went by.
I’m blessed knowing that I have God during those years that I was alone. He surrounded me with people. He loved me unconditionally.
God will never turn his back even we fall short… as he said in His word … He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
Isn’t He amazing?
Here’s a list of what I am grateful for:
1. My family
2. My church as my second home
3. For friends who stayed with me when I was wandering
4. For the companies that I have worked for which helped me to enhance my capabilities and enabled me to sustain all my personal needs, support my family and to give my tithes/offering
There are simply so many things to look forward to: new beginnings, the promise of visions and dreams coming to life, and the hopes that it will be amazing to spend your life with the person you love most. I can say that now I am living my life to the fullest. I am ready to face the new chapter in my life.
And I will remember and keep on coming back to what God has done in my life.
“Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassion never fail. They are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.”
