with my Jewish Family

Two years ago I was working with 101 years old English lady. She died after I took care of her for 4 years. It was a nice experienced for me and a pride that I got a patient who's reached 101 years old. I have a lovely relationship with her and her family and after she died the family still want to communicate with me. They treated me so well being part of a family. When there is a special holidays like now Pesach-Passover they always invited me to join with them. For the past two or three days I spent a few hours with them. They were very warm people and I didn't feel strange each one of them. I could feel that our Grandma Martha was still there, sharing the joys and happiness with us. I miss them a lot when the time I go back in the Philippines.

on my week end escapades....

I was longing to go out every week but because I don't have anybody to go with me so I prefer to watch American Idol, or go to bed early. 
My cousin who always my buddy, my friend, my partner in crime as one of my friend said. and  always canceled her appointment with me ..hehehe.. so one night I dreamed, saying to me "cousin I am sorry I cannot come" In my dreamed I said, "its ok but don't come anymore here" When I told her last thursday , she laughed at me and said she will come to spend time for the week end.
It was a lovely weekend escapades after 2 months that I never go out, can you believe that? Hahaha!!! We supposed to go to our favorite restaurant the Collins Kitchen Bar and Restaurant but  when we were there it was under renovation, fortunately that area has a lot of restaurants so we ended up to a Burger Restaurant name Black City. The restaurant was full, no vacant table for two so we sat by the bar counter. It was great, we order straight a dakir…

trying hard

I had so much fun reading the entry of  GT this week , and I noticed most of you are mommies , hehehe!!! Do I need to join this, nahiya yta ako kasi I think I'm the only single here.. but I love, so I won't care na din..
By the way, I find it difficult to look for some hidden photos of mine, since my laptop has been reformat , all my old file was gone.  Luckily, I found some photo's from my camera and this one picture of mine caught my attention. I was laughing because I took this picture when I was trying to copy a pose of Penelope Cruz from a magazine, unfortunately it wasn't perfect to post it. If its not because of GT , i rather hide this! LOL
I was alone when I took this picture ,just set the timer of my camer, and trying hard to pose like a model. LOL.. parang addict, kakahiya!

happens for a reason...

Its funny how plan can change a sudden twist, one day you plan and arrange to makes things perfect,  the next day you're off on that plans that you never thought its possible to happen. This is how exactly happened when I heard the news last night from my fiancee that he cannot go home for a vacation, the reason the company he is working  knew that if he will get out in the Country he won't come back anymore. So, they gave him a memorandum to finish the contract until September and cannot have a vacation otherwise he have to pay for breaking the contract. I never thought its gonna happen like this,the planned was so perfect..
So sad and I am sorry for our self.. Everything was set and here it is.
1. We already hire a wedding planner to set and work out our wedding dream to be. We gave 25% down payment of the said services.  2. I paid my plane ticket 3 months ago and he paid his ticket as well a week ago. 3. We arrange for my replacement here in my job (note: my leaving is for go…

on some words and notes

The slate's been wiped clean, the past has released its grip, and before you sparkles eternity, yearning for direction. Issa, all that lies between you and the life of your dreams is just one teeny, tiny, gentle, little rule. Only one condition, prerequisite, principle that matters. It's not love. It's not God. It's not fate, or luck, or karma. It's not complicated or esoteric, and you needn't sacrifice, plead, or pray to invoke it. It's the only rule that's ever existed, and it's the only one that will ever exist. No reality can exist in its absence. For its mere existence, you are. With its existence, the power, the light, and the way are revealed. It's your purpose to discover it, and it's your destiny to master it. It's the beginning, the middle, and the end. The Alpha and the Omega. The be-all and end-all of every wish, desire, and dream, and you are its keeper.
This caveat of all caveats is …

on some thoughts of real true friends

Make an on-line slideshow at

While making this vedio, I was thinking what a real true friendship are?
I have a wonderful friendship with Roze, Iren, Ruth, Marj, Elaine and Tonet. Though I didn't met them at the same time but the moment we shared together thats matter  most for me.Through thick and  thin, in good and bad times. We shared laughter, tears, problems and sentiments. Each one of us are always ready to listen. And I thought that's what friends are for..
So, with my relationship with them, I thought I could give a little idea or explanation what real true friends are?
For me friends, love unconditionally, of course we have little angry moments, we are only human being but what's done is done and all is forgiven. We don't need to be exactly the same, yes, we have similarities but we have also differences. I thought to keep going and holding on friendship is not only to expand on similarities but also to accept each others fault. The more we st…

on my naked face...

When I woke up this morning, it came up to my mind what if I will post my naked face here? ..LOL... make up free face.. no lipstick, no foundation not even considering a pressed powder. I know the idea makes me sick because I'm not used to post photos of myself  without wearing any make ups (smile) but I guess there is something about it that makes me feel free and liberating. And I figure it out that this is another step in my quest in learning to love the bits of myself that I consider to be imperfect, instead of admiring it as being lovely.

Posting this photo took me a lot of courage, and when I look at it I humbly say It's not bad I think hahaha!!! so scary to see my face without make ups. Its a fresh look, just got up from bed when I took this photo. I noticed that my right eye is smaller than my left eye. I like my lips, even without lipstick hehehe....but I look like my age LOL...I do feel much more insecure without wearing make ups or doing my hair though I don't w…

        It depends the situation but I am always a risk taker for adventure.

2. Who do you feel believes in you the most?
        My cousin Rose, I know she believes me the most.

3. When was the last time you were on a stage?

        She sent me for a bidding report and I had no idea of that  place... I was alone then, rode a bus to that strange place and ask where was the office. And when I came back to my office, she shouted at me why I was late..She didn't know  that I was lost.. But she get over her anger. and we won the bidding ..

5. If the NCAA Men's or Women's Final Four basketball tournament was played in your hometown arena or within easy driving distance from where you live, would you try to attend one the three games?

elephant never forgets

I'm ashamed of my self in 31 years of my existence I never know that elephant never forgets things and places. Sarah my lady just told me today and honestly it was my first encounter. Perhaps, I wasn't a wide reader or never listen when my teacher was explaining that fact, or a phrase? ^_^:)

If this is a phrase or a fact?,what is the explanation?  For a few hours , while I was working, it was stuck on my mind and I was really eager to look for an answer. According to my research "An elephant never forget " is a phrase

The origin of the phrase seems to go back to observations that elephants follow the same paths and even hand down genetic memories of directions and places grounds across generations. Each elephant clan has a certain burial place, like many human communities, and always help the dying ones get back there if they are not killed traumatically first. continue....

on my thoughts lately...

I felt tired, apprehensive or anxious lately. 
Its unusual for me, to change what exactly what I want then have a second thoughts. Feeling confident and have positive attitude then down to feeling insecure and embarrassed. Between feeling strong and brave and then  frightened and afraid. Feeling accomplished of some things but then suddenly I don't appreciate it. I'd say I'm happy but I'm a bit confused. And now I don't know what I gonna do.
I am always tired, my body is aching though I made some a lot of walking lately to relax and breath. It's odd because I always thinking what's gonna be my life? wild imagination came up, mixed feelings that I don't understand that I find it difficult to get sleep at night. ^-^(sigh)
It's difficult for me, because I don't have an outlet of this feelings.I don't have friends nearer me, my family, my boyfriend is too far. I cannot wander around in town due to my situation (illegal). Lucky, I live in a wonderfu…

on my crazyness of two things...

I never been crazy or idolize some actors, singers, actresses, or never been a lover of any sports but I am very much crazy with two things.

My Cellphone.. my lifeline to my offline friend and to those who doesn't have computer. my only best friend where ever I go, I become crazy without my phone..
second my computer.. this is my best friend, my companion, i can stay whole day  in my room with my computer, watch movies, listening music, a lot of things i can do with this small thing. This also my lifeline to my family, online friends, my boyfriend, my soul mate, Oh , I cannot live with out it hehehe... this only a small thing that can satisfy me.. it rocks my life...

what I really want...?

I really want to be somebody, a career woman. I really want to have a family of my own. I really want to have a healthy loving relationship. Nothing more, Nothing less. To wake up in the morning with a beautiful sunshine and beautiful smile from a partner. I really want life to have a constant soundtracks, playing in the background, that matches my moods perfectly. I really want to give a smile to my family at all times. I really want to make my family and friends laugh
I really want to learn driving, to travel,an adventure. I really want to be a role model of my brothers and sister. To inspire them. I really want to savor moments of pure joy and happiness than they last..I always want to be optimistic, making things possible to happen. I really want to live a life without looking at a clock. I really want to feel comfortable for myself, to feel I'm perfect despite of my imperfections. To live life to the fullest.
I really want to hold my faith to GOD. I really want to fall in lo…
