Tough Love

Dearest Singapore,

February 2009, it was more than three years and I am happy to look back. Unaware of what we have ahead, I still insist to go and try to see you personally. Bringing with me, an empty pocket, a bag full of dreams and a positive heart to keep them come true. When we first met, I am definite that it is love at first sight. :)

I must admit that we have a love-hate relationship in the beginning. I love to be here with you and you hate me being here. Sad as it may seem, I need to accept it. I know your reason and I fully understand. Yet, I believe I must fight for this new found love in you.

Our more than three years relationship (and still going. yey!) is not as smooth as most relationship is. I insist to be here with you so you can know what my love can do for you, yet you asked me to go. During 2010, I have to let go for a moment. I felt torn and tired to keep pushing for this love. But I still believe I have to fight for it. Back in my heart and mind, I know that the best is yet to come.

2011 came and the longing to see you again grows continously each passing day. The love I have for you has grown big that I cannot contain any longer. I must come back and offer it to you once again. When we met for the second time, it was tough for me to convince you to open your door and start this wonderful life together.

It is not once, not twice, not even thrice that I got rejected by you. But my love is too strong. After the nth rejection, you came to a decision to give me this chance to prove myself. This is the start of our wonderful journey together and that I have to thank you.

Thank you Singapore.

Thank you for letting us keep our family together here with you. Thank you for adopting us (may it be temporarily or permanently, we are happy)

Thank you for the wonderful memories that we have during our courting stage. :)

Thank you for not accepting us for the first, second, third and fourth time, it kept us to prove that our love for you is genuine.

Thank you for the wonderful parks, roads, clean air and safe environment, nice amenities, the great people who offered a harmonic culture that you have willingly shared to us.

Thank you for the experience. We do not know what lies ahead nor our future together. What I am certain is, that as long as we have this kind of relationship. I promise to take good care of you and be a responsible part of your society.

Maligayang Kaarawan Singapura! (Happy Birthday Singapore)
We do love you.
Nina, Gary and Gabriel

Simpleng Proyekto

Matagal ko na din gusto gawin itong bagay na ito pero wala akong sapat na kaperahan at oras para magawa.

Ngayon na nakapanig sa akin ang pagkakataon. Why not? Chocnut!!!

Aja! Oplan Bakakeng. Hehe. Kailangan manatiling lihim ang lahat. :)

Dumadating sa buhay natin paminsan minsan ang kawalan. Kung saan di mo maintindihan ang sanhi ng iyong kalungkutan. Muli ko syang nararamdaman sa panahon na ito. Naisip kong dahil may puwang. Dalawang linggo na kaming di nakapagsimba. Hay. kailangan namin ng reconnection kay Lord. Sorry Lord, this weekend, for sure, it is a date.

Magandang Lunes sa inyong lahat.

Umagang Kay Ganda

Biyernes na naman. Yey!

Ang pinakaiintay kong araw. Hehe. Obvious ba? Dahil kinabukasan, maglalaba ako, magluluto ng tanghalian, maglilinis ng kwarto at mag update ng buhay buhay sa likod ng tabing na ito. Nakakatuwang balikan na minsan kong pinangarap ang ganitong buhay. Nagpapasalamat dahil nagkaroon din ng katuparan.

Ang nakalipas na limang taon ng buhay ko ang isa sa pinaka-vonggang pangyayari. Ang dami na nagbago at natutunan. Kung lilingon ako sa nakaraan, nakitang kong masalimuot ang pinagdaanan namin. Pero nagpapasalamat ako dahil sa paglalakad ko sa daan na ito..meron akong kahawak kamay. Nagpapakeso lang.

Bawat hakbang, bawat yapak, basa man o tuyo, may tae man o wala..ahaha..masayang balikan at alalahanin.

Sa umagang ito, ang bawat hininga ng buhay ko ay muli kong iniaalay sa Iyo. Alam kong nagiging pilya ako, salamat sa paminsan minsang pagbatok at nagigising ako sa tunay na layunin ko sa mundo.

Hay. Napakagandang umaga sa inyong lahat. :)

My One Hour Journey with Him

In this very busy country, wherein the people are also super busy with their own lives, I love taking the bus.

It does remind me of how blessed I am to be in this situation by seeing different kind of individuals. Different Age. Different Colors. Different Sizes. Hehe. I am often stressed. Sometimes it is self inflicted and most of the time it is boss inflicted. Oops! The more or less one hour journey to/from home has given me so much time to reflect on how God had beautifully crafted our lives. It gives me that big push to move on, leave behind yesterday's problem and and look forward to today's happy moments.

I felt blessed to see everyday a part of what the world has to offer. It also helps me to visualize that this kind of living is possible to my home country. I know my stay in this world is temporary and this time I have with Him makes me realize that I need to do something. I need to become an important part of the society. Help the needy and be simply happy.

We only live once. We may have to take either bus or train or our own car (mine hopefully soon!) In this journey, make use of that special time to communicate with Him and your inner self. I guarantee you it will surely be a very worthy ride of your life. :)

Happy Huwebes Everyone.
