I am frustrated.

I applied in the DLSU Systen Housing Project, which will allow me to have a modest home for a little more than 500K. I’ve got my hope set high and today my application is being questioned because I am not a permanent employee. I feel really bad because the form said that if one is a full-time employee of any De La Salle System school, one is eligible. I am a full-time employee and I have been working in DLSU-CSB for the past four years. This housing project is really a big blessing to Ganns and myself. I pray that the Lord will make a way for my application to be approved.


Heard that TLC’s Lisa Lopes is dead. I cannot help but feel sad because I remember what a troubled life she lead. She was involved in several mishaps such as the much publicized arson case. May she rest in peace.


Ganns has finished his CD project. I got to listen to some of the songs and they’re so wonderful! I’m so glad that he is using his talents for God’s glory. I really believe that this project will help other people experience God’s blessings and power. Truly, our lives will be more meaningful if we live it for God.

“For we are God’s worksmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10


Home! Had a great time traveling around Ilocos. There were some high and low points during the visit. I saw the preserved body of Ferdinand Marcos in Batac. Believe me, the mausoleum was so creepy. Imagine, total darkness with only a spotlight focusing on his preserved body. The haunting dirge playing continuously didn’t help in augmenting the unappealing atmosphere. Well, it was an experience. I also visited the Malacañang of the North to witness anew the extravagance of the Marcoses. A day after, we went to Pagudpud beach, the Boracay of the North, as they say. This was definitely the highlight of the trip. The beach was breathtaking and the waters were incredibly clean. It was so beautiful, I stayed there for at least 3 straight hours! Now, I have a great tan! Well, at least, I think so. =)

So, how was your summer break?


Will be incommunicado for the next four days. Will be going to Ilocos with my officemates for our annual planning workshop. Will be bringing home some Vigan longganisa. Ciao!

Weird Childhood Food Combinations

Ganns and I were discussing what weird food combinations we enjoyed during our childhood years. Ganns admitted to eating spaghetti with Kraft Cheez Wiz. My own personal quirk was peanut butter sandwiches with Milo powder. I even remember eating Milo powder straight-up! Yum.


Yesterday, I met the parents of one of my friends in the shopping mall. Guess what her dad told me…”Wow, ang taba mo ngayon ah!” (“Wow, you’ve gotten fat lately”). Totally tactless! I don’t even think I am really overweight. But, I can’t get over the fact that what he said hurt me. Fat comments are just not good for anything.
