Postcards from Manila

My husband and I get homesick a lot. All of our family are still back home.

And seeing/reading a blog like this [Postcards from Manila] makes us feel more homesick. My husband actually stumble on that blog and shared it with me and now, I am sharing it with you.

For those who haven't been to the Philippines, it is a lovely place to visit. Just take a look at these breathtaking scenery as photographed by Bobby.

Unfortunately, for the locals, my friends say that it is cheaper to travel out of the Philippines [like HongKong, Singapore, Bangkok...] than within. :-( But for foreigners, they are quite affordable. And you will definitely love it.

I am who I am

And I won't change for anyone. I am willing to compromise.

If you are my friend, you will accept me for who I am. The same way I will accept you for who you are. I like the truth and I speak the truth. If it bothers you, stay away from me and never confides in me.

I am a very straight forward person. I have my own faults, I am not perfect. But if you ask me for my opinion, I will tell you what I think. I will NOT tell you things YOU want to hear. So be prepared to get hurt! Because the truth hurts, but at the same time, the truth will set you free. Be open minded. Learn to listen. If you don't like what I have to say, then don't talk to me.

Catch me... I'm in Love

OMG!!! This is another good movie! It really makes me feel like a teenager again. Super kilig to the bones. Gerald Anderson is soooooo handsome!

I am so addicted to watching Pinoy movies online these days. At one point, I was able to watch 4 movies in 1 day. What a bum eh? If you want to watch some Pinoy movies, check out Katambay.com. Quality is on the poor side, but if you're homesick, then it will do.

Catch Me I'm In Love tells the story of two people who was united by chance. Eric (Gerald Anderson), the Presidential son have always been a headache to his father (the President of the Philippines). Having been involved in an issue that was seen by the public. The president decided to take his son into an immersion under the supervision of Roanne (Sarah Geronimo). And from the moment they were together, one have discovered that - special someone who will catch her when she falls.

Thank you Lord!

I just finished watching "Maalaala Mo Kaya" [in English "Do You Remember"] mother's day [May 14] episode on the internet. The story is a about a mother of 3, who got strong faith with the Lord. First, the husband lost his job. Then tragedy strike. Eldest son was diagnosed with brain cancer. Because of his illness, they couldn't get medical treatment for their second son. 10 months after the eldest died, the second son died of kidney failure. The father can't handle the death of both son and went through depression, up to the point where he tried to kill himself. The mother's strong faith with the Lord helps her keep it all together. And she never doubted the Lord. Later on, the father was able to get back on his feet.

Stories like this makes me realized how blessed we are. And though I am currently unemployed with a brand new car to pay, I am still lucky that hubby got a well paying job and we are all healthy. I just need to cut down on other unnecessary expenses like dining out and shopping. And as long as we are able to pay off our mortgage and other essential things, than we are good.

Let's all remember to count all our blessings, no matter how small they are. Let us just be thankful that we are healthy. After all, health is wealth. Remember, that even though there are people out there with more than what we have, there are also people out there who have less than what we have.

When God closes a door... somewhere He opens a window.
