Music Monday#4 On This Day by David Pomeranz

Three days ago, Lainy and me went in the Atrium, Gaisano Mall to registere in kasal.com. We registered just to get a free magazine for wedding gown since we are fond collecting wedding gown designs.

Fortunately, I received sms from kasal.com yesterday informing me to pick-up my free gift pack worth of Php500.00. Then, after givings some awards to their staff and co-associates who participated the events, they have distributed some gift packs to us. Before, they closed the ceremony, the manager picked the name of the lucky couple to avail the 3 days honeymoon to Boracay. We are 8 participant are present and only one (1) pair couple (the lucky winner) attended. And this couple won for the special prize offered by the kasal.com.

Actually, I am laughing by myself, I supposed not to be here because this activity is not suit for me. I am not single anyway, and I am not dreaming to get married again. I registered because I also want to have a copy of magazine just like lainy..hahahha..but i have no choice, I need to get my gift pack.


I am not successful in my early marriage and I am afraid to get married again to a wrong person. If ever I get married again that would be in my next life.. I will be marrying the man that I love most. If ever this will happen, then I will choose this song for my next life wedding. My question is: Do you believe that there is still next life? Then tell me if I still have a chance to marry and own the man that I love most next life. I need your opinion dear friends, more thanks if you leave me some idea and comment, here in A Maiden's Testimony.

Nostalgia #4: My First International Travel Experience

Photobucket

I felt the thrill in my first international travel. I felt nervous because I was imagining bad things in my mind. I have asked myself what will happen to me if there's going to be a plane crash? Gosh!! It was an awful thought..tsk..tsk.

Anyways, I haven't even imagined that in my entire life, I can experience to travel especially outside of my own country. Honestly, I am afraid to travel alone. I remember when I left my home to visit my sister who stays at Davao City, I need to ask my mom to bring me there. I was afraid to take a bus and to go in unfamiliar places. I am afraid to get lost.

But, when my dear one invited me to go visit him at his place sometime on January 20, 2007, I was so very excited. The day of my travel, I felt so tired, especially when I was lining up on queue in the immigration window for passport stamp. God!! The lady attendant asked me some supporting documents. What I brought that time was my luggage, passport and money. The departure time was 8:00 in the evening. I phoned my boss at 7:30 in the evening and he advised me to look for someone to help me out. I phoned my dear one and informed him about it. I felt too disappointed that time. I was thinking to go back in my place if the immigration won’t allow me to travel outside the country. But, I still found ways; I went to the security information and asked for his advice. He brought me to other lady attendant and she advised me what to do. I completed quickly my immigration form and changes some details. At the same time I felt very nervous; I can feel my muscles trembling At last, exactly 8:00 0’clock in the evening they allowed me to board the plane.

Thank God! I had a very safe and sound journey. Had the immigration denied me, I have no sweet memories to share with you all, like these pictures below:


We stopped in this bridge for a single shot. I love the scenery in this picture. The peaceful river and the palace of the empire king.
Brrrrrr....I was supposed to be inside the hotel, but I had to go out just to take a picture in this very cold foggy weather, at Genting Highlands.
Beautiful and attractive lights inside the Genting Highlands
I dont want to fly..heheh..I only raised my hands to tell you that this place is beautiful!!

Outside the palace. Before, I only seen this in videoke background. In this photo, I stood in front of this kingdom. I felt like I am the Queen of the World! LOL!

This is the whole story of my first international journey. My dear told me, I am brave!! do you believe that? I hope so.

Thank you so much for reading A Maiden's Testimony.

Music Monday #3: Hold On Be Strong by Maria Huakas

This song is the winning piece of Norway. Maria Huakas won as 1st Place in the contest. The song shared to me my by my friend during the Euro Song Contest Final 2008. Happy Music Monday!!


Love can be hard sometimes
Yes, it can catch you off guard like bad crimes
Yes, it can make you depressed and angry
Make you say: "Why me, why won't anybody try me?"

Might be saying: "Ooh, I don't wanna be lonely"
"Ooh, I don't wanna be by myself"
"Ooh, don't wanna be lonely"
"Why ain't anybody lovin' me?"

But there's always someone out there who'll be there for you
There is always someone out there who will care for you
There's always someone out there who'll be true, true, true
Hold on, hold on, be strong

Love can go away forever if you push it
And you have to remember: don't rush it
If it ain't right, it is wrong
And you'll be crying: "Why me, why won't anybody try me?"

You might be saying: "Ooh, I don't wanna be lonely"
"Ooh, I don't wanna be by myself"
"Ooh, don't wanna be lonely"
"Why ain't anybody lovin' me?"

Now, but there's always someone out there who'll be there for you
And there's always someone out there who will care for you
There's always someone out there who'll be true, true, true
Hold on, hold on, be strong

And yes, there's always someone out there who'll be there for you
And there's always someone out there who will care for you
There's always someone out there who'll be true, true, true
Hold on, hold on, be strong

Hold on, hold on, be strong
My child, hold on, hold on, be strong

Reflection of Our Sin

The existence of a human being is a wonderful gift by the Creator, we called it LIFE. Life that enables us to determine in this world how we live naturally in our FAITH for His great creation, HE offered to us. Genesis 1:27-28 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

God designed us as an extremely significant creation from His own image and likeness. He gives us the power over those creatures he had molded on this globe. But, the essence of God’s creation acquired Him a total disappointment because of the restlessness of every being and that means us. These caused the barrier of the relation between Man and God to wither. The cause why every generation would not be satisfied enough of what they have, though they often boast about it, because of PRIDE and DISCONTENT.

Genesis 3:4-5 “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye earth thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” The sins that made us to depart from this wonderful Garden of Love. Genesis 3:23-25 “ Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground form which he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Now, we propel the life after doing each desirable matter which caused us to depart from the love of God. And lead ourselves in our own dingy way of unrighteousness and conviction. The path which opens the door of insignificant choices. The choice which made Him shed a thousand tears like the pouring drops of rain of which every human being ought to not feel. His heartaches from His cavernous heart is of the least significant to us. The ocean flows of his teardrops when He feels the pain because of our obdurateness, until His wrath equipped us through the roaring thunderstorm and the heavy lightning from the mourning sky which carves death.

Look at our frenzied world! The reality which enables us to depart from His love. The love that we can't enjoy because of these hindrance which is produced by our sins. This some times makes it difficult for us to be a PERFECT HUMAN. Since, we were sinners; Romans 2:12, 3:10 "For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law; and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law'; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one."
How depressing that our beloved Creator gained only nothing from his CREATION. Why are we, being special to Him, busted His great plans for us? We continue to bruise His heart which carved a mark in it- that matter mostly reflects the agony made by us.

This is one of my entry that I wrote when I and my Christian friend decided to make a christian blog. I want to share with you my dear sister and brother how God work in my heart during I wrote this Reflection of Sin. Thank you so much for reading. Have a blessed Sunday to all!! This is a Maiden's Testimony.

Agreement



My daughter lollii made an agreement last Sunday night. She said she needs more encouragement to her studies. In order for her to strive more, she suggests to make an agreement for the final grades that she will attain. Written below are the following things we agreed::

  1. If she can get 3.0 grades she will serve (cook, laundry, clean the house all household stuff) me for one month.
  2. If she can get 2.75 grades she will serve me for 3 weeks.
  3. If she can get 2.5 grades she will serve me for 2 weeks.
  4. If she can get 2.00 grades she will treat me a Pizza.
  5. If she can get 1.75 grades I will treat her in Jollibee.
  6. IF she can get 1.50 grades I will treat her a dinner in Royal Hotel.
  7. If she can get 1.25 grades I will treat her to SM of Davao City.
  8. If she can get 1.00 grades I will treat her to Malaysia again.


The main purpose of the above agreement is to inspire and encourage her more in her studies to have a satisfactory grade. She wants to prove that she can do her dreams come true, if she strive more.


Ok, lollii, goodluck to you and May God bless you always anak. I love you so much and don’t forget to pray to God because in Him there is now impossible .

Music Monday#2: It Must Have Been Love

I remember when I worked as a bookkeeper in a friend of mine. I joined with them if they traveled to deliver some supplies to Davao City, Cagayan City, Cotabato City and
other places. Since, it was a long and tired trip, he played Roxette music. Hope this song will make you joy the ride. Happy Hear Day Everyone!!




Lay a whisper on my pillow,
leave the winter on the ground.
I wake up lonely,
there's air of silence in the bedroom
and all around
Touch me now, I close my eyes and dream away.

It must have been love but it's over now.
It must have been love but I lost it somehow.
It must have been love but it's over now.

From the moment we touched, 'til the time had run out.
Make-believing we're together that I'm sheltered by your heart.
But in and outside I've turned to water like a teardrop in your palm.
And it's a hard winters day, I dream away.

It must have been love but it's over now.
It's all that I wanted, now I'm living without.
It must have been love but it's over now,
it's where the water flows, it's where the wind blows.

Rest in Peace Angelo Reyes


It was a surprise to all Filipino people that the former leader Arm Forces of the Philippines committed suicide. It was agonizing to hear what happened to the late Angelo Reyes. But this is not the issue; the issue is when will this national leaders do their job and responsibilities without a trace of dishonesty.

How we can trust our Filipino leader if graft and corruption will continue to be their habit? How many leaders will be able to tolerate this kind of illegal activities if they became the example of our young leaders?

I hope and pray these new government would have the capacity to instill discipline and cease corruption.

Rest in Peace to Angelo Reyes.

Thanks for being here in A Maiden's Testimony

Nostalgia # 2: Star Before and Now


Photobucket


Photographs, the evidence of our past. We kept our memories in the photographs.


Last past three nights, I scanned the CD's in my drawer. I convinced myself to opened the said CD and when I looked it contains photographs. I save them in my documents and I sent some of Lainy's pictures while we are chatting.

This photos taken in June 2009.

Star in her sitting position.
Star in her standing position.

In this photo below taken last December 2010. I started to get fat with 56 kilos and 28 inches waistline.




And this picture is my latest picture taken last January, 2011.


I want to used a very comfortable clothes if I'm traveling. But, I prepared to used this fatty clothes to hide some of my divider fats. I have 29 inches waistline and 60 kilos.
And this is my newest picture taken last week. I need to hide my stomach because I look preggy. I have 62 kilos now and please don't ask my waistline, sigh.

I am body conscious now, but I observed something change with me. I have no discipline specially if I craved a foods. I can't stop myself to eat delicious and sweets food Sometimes, I woke up in the midnight and ate my snacks.

Losing Something


Since, it's lollii's examination week, I prepared her dinner though it was late for me to cook. I let her to take her snacks for awhile while preparing her special foods. After she ate, she looks for her things in her school bag. And she asks me if I keep her transparent envelop containing the English work book, assignment, and other important papers related in her exams. She realized that the said tranparent enveloped was inadvertently loss without her knowledge. I advice her to think where is the last time she puts the said envelop. She can't recall anymore maybe because she is tired that time. She starts to panic. She gets worried were her assignments and her notebooks was in the envelop and she needs to study the subject scheduled today. As a mom, I understand that she needs comfort. I adviced her to be calm and make the situation cool. She did not listen instead she makes some argument with me. Ok, I give her some idea how to make a solution in this kind of problem. The following are the tips that I want her to do:
TIPS:

1. Don't panic because this will worsen the situation.

2. Be calm, this will help you to think some options.
3. Make a list of things you need.
4. Since, you still have time to do your assignment, you can make a new assignment.
5. Your Workbook, if it will not recover tomorrow. We have no choice but to buy new one.
6. You need to go early in the school to find the envelop you lost.
7. If not recovered, then you can borrow the notes from your classmate and photocopy then study while there still time to do.

Well, I am thanful, I have a patience to comfort her because of her reaction. She said she started to hates herself...goshhhhh...sometimes it makes me pissed but I need to control myself. I know she needs my comfort specially when she acts to cry.
In the morning, I gave her extra money amounting to Php220.00 in case she didnot recover the english workbook. And when we back home today, she hugs and thanks me because she recovered her belongings. But, the money that I gave, I didn't recover, LOL...why? because her classmate borrowed the half of it and I gave the the rest for her allowance for tomorrow. That's why if your kids lost something, don't get angry, instead, comfort them because they need your support. Because if not, you help them to loss their confidence.


Anyways, I am glad that she got a highest score in her subject.

Thanks for reading, A Maiden's Testimony.

Music Monday #1: SONATA MUSIM SALJU


Saat ku merindukan dirimu
Jiwa meronta kau ku damba
Oh gerhanalah seluruh pancaindera
 
Ku hilang dalam memori cinta
Membakar seluruh jiwa raga
Hanya kau untukku
Kau tiada dua
 
Bagaikan siang tiada mentari
Bagai malam tiada cahaya purnama
Tanpamu tiada erti hidup berdua
Ke akhir masa kau ku cinta
 
Bagaikan syurga tanpa bidadari
Kau ibarat hembusan nafas terakhir
Pulanglah sayang usah kau berpaling
Di sini ku pasrah menanti
 
Dikau bak salju ditiup bayu
Kan rebah di pangkuan bumi
Ku yakini kasih
Restu Illahi
 
Ku doa kau hadir
Permaisuri mahligaiku
Hidup mati cinta kita bersama


I love this song. When I was in KL, I and my dearest one went to the star box. We had a sweet dance while he sing this song. Wow, this is a lovely day for me, I wish that day the clock will stop and I am forever in his arm with lovely music. How I wish, but I know it is impossible because our love is very complicated. I know how he find ways to make my day happy, he let me experience how to be loved which every woman wishes.


Dear I love you forever and I miss you a lot. Thank you so much for making me happy. Be safe always and God bless.

It is good when someone listen



Yesterday, I shared something about acceptance while having a little chat with my client. She told me that she was scared of looking at her dead friends or love ones body in the cascade. Because she was scared to end up like the rest of us do-to naturally die.

I shared some of my devastating experiences on death, and how I overcome the pain of losing my love ones. I told her how much we suffered after my brother, father and my son left on this world to journey in a place of serenity. Through that experience we've learned that acceptance heals the pain.

After hearing those words, she thanks me and appreciated all the things that I said. It just like she was relieves from her worries.

I felt good enough when she left in the office saying that she will start to learn how to accept and welcome Jesus Christ in her heart. Ok, I am not a religious one who go to the church often times, but I believed Jesus Christ who is my savior in every day of my life. Without Him in my heart, I know I am nothing. I don’t know where my life goes.

God bless to all!!

NOSTALGIA # 1: God's Gift

Photobucket
I am thankful that I received a very special gift from above. I am so grateful that my mom and I survived in taking care of my son, John Rey (a.k.a. Ken-Ken). Ken-ken is three years old now and by next school opening he will enter in the school as Kinder 1.

My son is very excited to go into school and I have a hard time to explain when he will start to enter in the school. Sometimes, he wakes up early in the morning to prepare his self. He takes a bath early and eats his breakfast. He starts to walk like a smart boy going to the school since the primary school is in front of our home. Gosh...one time i didn't notice he walks alone going to the school and when I looked for him, he is standing in front of the school gate like a big boy.

Anyways, my son now is grown up fast and he learned a lot of things everyday.

Anyways, here are some of my son's photos.

Ken-ken when he was 2 months old

now he is three years old and starting to learn new things. In this picture he is learning to write.

He cooks his food.

He is also friendly. In this picture He introduced his self to this very cute girl.
He is also playful

Sometimes he is emotional

and sometimes he needs privacy.

I pray that my son has a good future awaiting in his way.
