It’s not everyday I find myself crying in front of my computer but this video really spoke to me, especially when I’m feeling so lost and unsure of where I’m heading with my life.

Thank you for sharing this, Jet.

I hope you’ll find comfort and hope after watching this.



Very awesome video, another Becket original.

I’ll bet you 5 Our Fathers that you need to hear this message. Seriously, if you read this and say you didn’t need to hear it, message me and I’ll pray 5 Our Fathers for you.



Our Manila Gimmick Part 3

The next day, Heaven and I met up with my sisters Chikki and Chongee. They brought with them Liam, Chikki’s son and their maid Josie. We went to Tiendesitas with the hope of going over to Avilon Zoo. Unfortunately we did not expect that the entrace fee would be 500php per head! We opted to stay over at the Fun Ranch instead.

However, we did take some photos over at Avilon Zoo and I showed Heaven a huge lizard (there was an iguana) as part of the zoo’s teaser as well as guinea pigs, snakes, owlets and parrots.

Heaven exclaimed, “BIG! Lizard!”
Heaven wanted to touch them but got scared at the last minute.

Selling price – 6000php but this bird doesn’t know how to talk yet.

You can hear other animal sounds coming from inside the Ark but we had to resist the temptation of going in. Besides, if Heaven could get scared by a mere lizard in a cage, she might not enjoy the other bigger animals inside the zoo. Could have been a total waste.

At the Fun Ranch, Heaven and I rode their plane ride. It was a first for her and as much fun as it looked I got dizzy after a few turns. I can’t hardly wait for the ride to end. Heaven was unaffected. Sigh, truly shows that I’m no longer that young. Vertigo, is that you? (God forbid!)

Round and round it went…

It was a great day and we truly enjoyed spending it with Liam and my sisters. More pics below!

Sisters Forevah!

We can’t wait for our next Manila trip to visit and spend time with my family. Next on our trip…GT Kikay moments!

Our Manila Gimmick Part 2

So we rode the carousel and hung out at Starbucks after Tiny Town. Here are some of my fave photos:

Heaven loved playing with the colored balls

 It was a fun-filled day only to be cut short when Liam fell on his arm and sprained a muscle. We had to bring him to the mall clinic for check-up and we went home with a bandaged arm.

Later on, we arrived at my aunt’s home in Cavalry Hills and celebrated a quiet dinner and yummy cake with my cousin Kats. The next day, we went to Makati for lunch and there, Heaven and her Kuya Koen went malling.

Happy cousins!

 It was a nice stroll inside the mall. I bought Heaven a dolly stroller at Toy Kingdom and then we went to visit our tenacious yet overprotective Tita Dolly. She’s actually my grandmother’s sister-in-law. She took care of my dad while he was in Manila before he met my mom. Now that I have Heaven, she already offered to take her in and rear her. I lovingly declined but it was really sweet of her to offer. She’s such a good soul who is always looking out for our welfare.

Overall, it was a good visit. I thought that my night was all but through when we arrived at Cavalry Hills but around 2 am, Kats woke me up and we started chatting until the morning.

More to come on my next blog post.  Have to rest now. Adios!
