1st Sunday of November reflections ~ 

Stunning sunset this Sunday : Ip6xHujiapp


Everyday I’m feeling guilty of not doing practice tests and essays, and speaking English. I have so many lackings/backlogs in terms of my progress on studying IELTS. My fault. My choices. I had chose to focus my time with my family because they were more precious now than ever. 

I’m not watching any k-drama related anymore. But, I’m still into k-pop, most esp. listening to BTS and bobbalgan on Spotify. I’m continuing my passion rolling btw, blogging and journaling.  Guess, I’m still so distracted ? Ugh social media. 

I didn’t booked yet for my IELTS exam date. I’m on a vacation mode right now until 19th. I will not be in a hurry, it’s better to book when I’m truly ready to go for it. 

Today’s simple joys:

  • Celebrated mass with mom and dad. Father (I forgot his name) had blessed them as they were November birthday celebrants hihi
  • Happy lunch at Shakey’s 
  • Mama bought our new turbo
  • Kuya treated me strawberry lemonade
  • Beautiful sunset
  • Invited my brother and friends on Grand feast at MOA arena this coming November 26. It’s my first time!! Thank God my brother will come with me. Thanks to her girlfriend, kam, too for buying the tickets for us!!
  • Ate got our new matchy-matchy cellphones. Super thanks for her incentives from FlyNas!! 
  • Prayed the rosary with mama. Prayers and faith really works!!! 
  • Registered to a free seminar about stock market at Col Financial on Tuesday. This is it. 

Goodnight, universe!
Always be grateful 🌷

775 ~ The Feast with my Family <3

Never did I knew that one of my prayers will be answered today. Best Birthday Gift before my month ends. huhu. I can’t stop being too emotional during the mass and until the Feast session. I was able to bring my family, most especially my dad and brother to celebrate mass and attend the Feast together. HUHU. It’s been a really, really long time since the two of them went to a spiritual gathering. Thank You to our dearest Lord! ❤


It’s really a blessing to be part of The Feast ministry’s awesome kids. I was able to ask Sophia, my niece, to join our tomorrow’s event, that’s why I taught her the dance steps yesterday. I’m really grateful that my family patiently waited until Sophia’s performance. They even seated near the stage. hayyyy. As in, wow. I’m really not alone today. Lord, I lift it up to you may you touch and guide them, I hope they will be committed too, on next Sunday, and next Sunday, and so on. Today’s Big day was so powerful, I am really praying that they have opened their mind and soul, allowing God to enter their lives. ❤


Afterwards, we had our lunch at Luyong (Chinese Restaurant). Then, we went at SM Marikina. I treated my mom at Bangs T&J Salon, her hair got colored with very dark brown and same cut as Pia Archangel’s pixie hairstyle. So glad to make my mom happy and look good. Thanks for my sister who noticed my mom’s poor hair color at first. hehe.



When we went home, we ate dinner together, then me and my mom prayed the rosary. We slept around 9pm..coz tired but happy!

Always be grateful 🌷

Life’s full of temptation. Anybody can easily fall into a certain addiction because of this. However, without realizing and reflecting enough, we fall into sin not because of temptation, but with weak spiritual system.

We, humans, go through different kinds of pain and sadness. Heartbreaking. Depressing. It’s unbearable at times, that’s why we, having these feels, tend to find instant solution to ease our sufferings. We tend to form an escape and rely to wrong choices that will only eventually make us more broken on the inside.

I am not in the position to lecture what to do with these, but let’s just be kind to ourselves. Love ourselves to stand firm with God.

I cry a lot because I sometimes feel hopeless as regard with my family issues but I still love them. During the session at the Feast, I can’t help myself not comparing the situation of my dad and my brother. Self-rejection to self-doubt to self-pity to self-destruction. For now, sorry I will not elaborate anymore.. I still can’t handle it. I hope it’s not too late for my family to be restored emotionally and spiritually. HUHU. I don’t know how to properly approach them with this matter but I pray that God will strengthen my faith that my family is worth-saving for!!!!! ~ My prayer since I’m in high school. Sigh.

To sum up my night, I’m still pretending to be okay at home, even if my dad and brother were not really fine at all. While I was having my Sunday Service at Bluewave, I have no idea that they fought because of our car. ugh. Tomorrow is another day. I hope my brother is mature enough to say sorry and respect my dad. Please.

 

Thank you God,  I know you’re always there for me and my household. I lift up all my pain in my heart. Thank you for this gift of life this week, though I sometimes feel like a failure, you’re there to comfort me and help me stand up all the time. I love you ❤

 

No k-drama, k-pop music and social media until Saturday, self. I must start to focus on my review for IELTS. Hehe. push! See you on Sunday, BTS fam! Eat well and enjoy! Congrats on winning wooh DNA8thwin ~ daebak ~

 

Goodnight, universe!

 

Always be grateful ❤

745 ~ September-ender 🙌🏻

I’m feeling extra kind today and I don’t know why.. Hihi my inner soul is in bliss and delight despite this gloomy weather.

This morning, I woke up early, had breakfast with Papa, then took a bath, and we went at Niner. I thought, I’m gonna be late again for reservation, but lo and behold, I got the second slot for coaching in writing later. After second failed attempts, yey!! When we went home, my first agenda was to clean my room, our living and dining area. Hehe.. but I remembered that I’m gonna return the broken army bomb to its owner this week. She had refunded P1500 already, **I hope she pays me P400 next month as her promise. I covered the army bomb and the box with each bubble wrap. Good thing, I didn’t throw our bubble wraps before (from Althea). I kept her free 4 photocards with me, and gave her new set of photocards (Jungkook, V, Jimin, Rapmon, Jin), and also a short letter. Hihi. After I prepared my parcel, I booked via Xend courier for parcel pick-up today.


(1st layer: bubble wrap. *I forgot to snap a photo of my final wrap btw, I put 2nd layer of bubble wrap, then covered it with pieces of pink japanese paper)


My first Xend experience, so far – so good! 👍🏼 The Xend man staff came faster than I expected because I booked at around 1100H and he came at 1400H, (despite of the rain). Good thing, I have my scrap materials for packing this lightstick because he just put it in Xend pouch, then sealed it. For P110, transaction done easily and hassle-free! *Plus, affordable. I hope there will be no problem anymore from the packaging or shipping thing. Please. 🤞🏼
On the afternoon, while I’m listening at The School of Greatness on podcasts app, I cleaned my room, changed my bedsheets (yeyyy!), and decluttered some of my things. Then, took a bath again, and Papa drove me to Niner Santolan for coaching. I’m late again. (Haaay, self). I waited there until Mam Nadine called my name. I watched Temperature of Love’ episode 3 while waiting. Haha. So, I had my coaching session, got 6.5 for both task1&2. (Keep pushing, self!! Huhu don’t give up quickly). I decided to stick to my plan to go at Sta.Lucia Mall instead of going home because “me-time”. I went straight at Cinema 5 new building, hehe but bro, I was wrong, the feast’ Walk in 2 the light event was held at their old building, Cinema 5 😅.  It’s always moving and ispirational to attend and feels God’s love altogether in one home. 

Right after the feast, I roamed around the mall because I’m craving for J. Co’s avocado frappe. However, there’s no J.co there. 😅 I had my dinner at Rob’s Subway and did journaling until 2040H. Meanwhile, one woman approached me and she’s selling Otap Biscuits, she said she needed to fund her studies. And you knew what I did. Going to the tricycle station, I saw a mother with her child sitting on the street, it’s raining and cold, I looked at them, and they needed something, the mother asked for money because they wanted to go home, so I asked her if I can give her food instead, she nodded, and I gave her the Otap Biscuits. I brought home Bibingka (rice cake) to my Papa because he waited for me alone in our house, its my simple way of rewarding him and making him happy tonight.



I can’t believe how my actions and words were like involuntary today, saying “take care” many times to people without hesitations. 

It’s a beautiful life!!! Hope you all spent your Saturday by simply being kind to yourself or to others. Thank you, September!!! 💕

Most esp. Thank you Lord!!!! What a powerful name it is ❤️ all glory and praise to You 🙌🏻

Goodnight, universe!

Always be grateful 🌷
