Easter Day Part 2

It’s not often that I get to hang out with my kazins. It just so happened that we held a family meeting on Easter. Actually, make that a clan meeting. It was a productive meeting with tons of food and lots of love and laughter. Heaven was delighted her cousins were around and of course, paid the price of running around the whole afternoon and whole evening (since we went home around midnight), playing and dancing by having a slight cough today.

Irregardless of that hiccup, the rest of the afternoon went well. We assigned roles for the reunion and collected monthly dues from each family. The best part was the bonding time I got to have with my kazins. We spent the rest of the evening catching up with each other’s lives, dancing, joking around and more.

All in all, Easter Sunday celebrated not only the resurrection of Jesus but also the true meaning of how family can also bring you out of the darkness. From every experience of pain and sadness, Jesus’ love is exemplified in our families. I am truly blessed to have a loving and supportive clan.

Although not everyone was present, they were all in our hearts. I especially missed Jetjet.

Easter Day

Jesus is Alive!

The mass we attended at SM was good. Although I particularly felt that the priest’s sermon was quite long, his message of hope was received well. It was going to be a busy day.

We strolled inside the mall and of course, we ended up at the arcade where Heaven played different games and won herself a ballpen with a sticky tape. I think she chose it to hoard the thing. Seriously, she now has tens of pens and crayons at home!

As with any Easter Sunday, the mall had some activities lined up for the kids. Thus, we registered to join the activities. There was a fishing game, face painting and coloring. Heaven had a blast!

She won a prize for fishing out 5 toys and had her left cheek painted on. She wanted a blue and pink butterfly.

After lunch, Heaven went on to color some eggs. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was nicely made, by the way. Super proud mom, here!

When we got home, it was far from over because we later went to my uncle’s home and met up with the rest of the family for some long overdue bonding. Part 2 post coming up!

Busy at coloring!

Summer is here!!!

Summer begins tomorrow for me. I’m officially unemployed and will now just wait for my application to push through.

Korra’s back!

However, I have lots to look forward to. There’s the Legend of Korra book 2 and a new Korean tv series called My love from the stars.

The Son of God

Because it’s Palm Sunday, I watched the Son of God. It was so-so for me. Jesus looked great but nothing can compare to Jesus Christ Superstar as the best movie musical adaptation of the life of Jesus.

Note to self, less chocolates and more dancing. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks to my kazin, I now have a terrible cough due to the chocolates she gave. Still, I’m happy that I got them.

My stepmom arrived from Bali and we got new tees! I can’t wait to show them off in Manila this April.

So this is it. Summer, please be good to me. xoxo

A blog post from Facebook

I’m not at home and due to my age, I can’t recall my password for my blog so here I am, writing on Facebook Notes (I will still upload this on my blog though). Anyway, the past few days has been awesome. My bff Gra celebrated her birthday and my bestfriend Jen arrived from Cebu. It was a wonderful reunion of sorts. Hanz was also there and we simply bonded over dinner and drinks at Lifestyle.ย 

So what’s new? Nothing much. Gra is still single and looking hot. Jen is newly separated but moving on. Hanz is busy with his business and taking care of us ladies. This week was a week of new discoveries and cautionary tales of woe.

Discovery no. 1 – I’m not dead.

I’m back to blogging and doing some of the things I usually do. Namely, watching romantic anime series, reading books, dancing (okay,still not as much and I have the bulge to prove it), meeting new people and just recently, went to the moviehouse to watch a movie!

Discovery no. 2 – Love is in the air!

For some odd reason, people around me can be found in various stages of love. There’s someone who’s on the verge of falling in love, there’s someone who have lost a love, someone in the throes of passionate love, someone in a bubble-like existence of love, someone who wants to get back an ex-love and there’s me, someone who wants to open the door of love once more.

Discovery no. 3 – Life is a stage…

And aren’t we all actors? Most of us who use different masks to show off a different persona thatn who we truly are. Yet, there are few people like my bffs Gra and Jen who do not use masks nor pretend to be whoever they are not. This is what I love about them. As for me, I’m guilty of putting up a wall instead of a mask. Much like my friends, I’m transparent too. Yet somehow, people see the wall not the person. Weird.ย 

Tale of Woe no. 1 – Beware of the Players

To start dating, you must know the players. Since I have not dated for more than five years, whatever it is I knew before is meaningless now. Nowadays, I can’t tell a serial dater from a true-blue gentleman. They say the nicest stuff and sound oh so sophisticated and simply attractive but then somehow they turn to sleazebags! What’s wrong with you, guys?

Tale of Woe no. 2 – Broken People

People who have had their hearts broken can sometimes simply stay that way, broken. Too broken up that they can’t see there’s someone better, someone good for them. Sometimes, they feel that they don’t deserve to be happy anymore. However, that’s totally wrong. We all deserve happiness and it may not be with the person who broke your heart but there’s someone out there for you and me.ย 

Tale of Woe no. 3 – Rejection

There’s this risk we need to take. To offer ourselves to life and to love. The downside of this plan is that you might get rejected. Whether it’s your dream job, your dreamlover, your family, etc. rejection can make the world fall down around you. It can bring you to your knees and bleed you to oblivion. But this should not stop us from trying again. To fail makes you humble. To try once more makes you wise.

Palm Sunday is a day to be thankful that Jesus came to be with us.

A day to celebrate because Manny Pacquiao won, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

A day to remember that life is good, no matter what.
