LOOKING FORWARD ON 2010...A NEW YEARS RESOLUTION
Haizzzt. Ilang araw na lang bagong taon na. Panahon na naman ng putukan, putukan sa kalye, sa garahe, sa kalsada, sa kama at maski ang bulkang mayon ay nagbabadya. At panahon din ng walang kamatayang new years resolution. Simula ata ng matuto akong magsulat, taon taon basta magbubukas ang pasukan, pagkatapos ng mahabang bakasyon, meron lagi kaming 'write your new years resolution'. Naalala ko tuloy ang ilan kong isinulat mula sa makamundo este mura kong isipan, tulad ng (1.) hindi na ako magiging maingay sa klase (ganun daw kapag ang bata ay maingay sa klase, ibig sabihin matalino...kaya hindi ko magawa-gawang tumahimik sa klase...hehehe), (2.) hindi na ako mangungupit kay nanay (piso lang kase baon ko nun...hehehe), (3.) hindi ko na aawayin ang kapatid ko (na sa kasamaang palad, ako ang inaaway), (4.) magaaral na akong mabuti lalo na sa music, at marami pang iba na kung sasariwain mo ay matatawa ka lang. Maliit at simple pero sa mata at isipan ng isang bata ay napakalaking responsibilidad ang kanyang haharapin sa isang buong taon. At mula dito natututo tayong kontrolin ang sarili at tumupad sa ating ipinangakong resolusyon.

Matagal tagal na din na di ako gumagawa nito, at sa paglipas ng mahabang panahon, hindi ko lubos akalain na heto ulit ako at muli susulat ng isang resolusyon hindi lang para sa sarili kundi pati na rin para sa kapwa. At para ngayong 2010, heto ang sampu sa napakarami kong New Years Resolution.

1. LOSE WEIGHT. Dahil sa ang nakaraang holidays ay kabi-kabila ang kainan at ang katotohanang hindi pa din nababawasan ang dati kong timbang, bagkus ay nadadagdagan pa. Ito ang una sa listahan ko na pipilitin kong matupad.

2. SAVE MONEY. Dahil sa katotohanang hindi na ako tumatanda(hehehe), kailangan ko ng mag-ipon, hindi habang panahon ay may kumpanyang tatanggap sa akin.

3. PUT a BUSINESS. Mula sa katotohanan na ang halos karamihan sa OFW ay walang naipupundar. Isa ito sa pipilitin kong magawa. Kung may suhestyon kayo kung anong magandang business ang gawin, just let me know.

4. VOLUNTEER. Have concern for others. Share your blessing. Maniwala sa good karma. Mas maganda na ikaw ang tumulong kesa ikaw ang tulungan.

5. GET UP EARLY. Early bird catches early worm. Dahil sa antukin ako lalo na ngayong winter na halos 6~7 na beses akong ma-late sa isang buwan, kailangan kong baguhin ang lahat bago pa nila (boss) ako maunahang palitan.

6. GET FIT & EAT RIGHT. Kinakailangan ko ng mag-exercise at maging health concious, kase hindi na ako tumatanda este bumabata pala.

7. SERVE GOD MORE. Kahit na member ako ng music ministry ng simabahan, kailangan ko pa ring iextend ang pagseserve ko sa KANYA at kay BRO, in a way, na makabubuti hindi lang para sa aking sarili kundi pati na rin sa iba.

8. TRAVEL & GET a better JOB. Gusto kong makarating ng SINGAPORE at GREECE yun lang.

9. TIME MANAGEMENT. Maging responsable sa oras at sa mga napangakuang gawain.

10. LOOK FOR A PARTNER IN LIFE. Huwag maging insensitive at maging bukas sa lahat ng gustong kumain este maging malawak ang pang-unawa at huwag maging makasarili. Kung may nais kayong ireto, andito lang ang blog ko...

Tandaan lahat ng pagbabago ay nagmumula sa sarili at sa sinseridad ng taong nais ang pagbabago. Ang lahat ng resolusyon sa sarili na ating isinusulat at itinatala ay pawang mga gabay lamang at patnubay ng magulang ang kailangan (meganun!!!).

Muli ako'y bumabati sa lahat ng bloggers ng isang...

MANIGONG BAGONG TAON!!!

WINTER STORY
Today, December 18, 2009.
Taipei city got a 10 degrees temperature.
Dahilan para umurong ang betlog ko at matulog ng nasa itsurang letter C. Pero bago ako matulog nakipraktis muna ako ng choir sa church namin para sa misa bukas. After a couple of hours na praktis, nagpaiwan ako at ang dalawa ko pang kasamahan sa music ministry upang magayos ng ilang gamit. Pagkatapos ayusin ang mga song book, nagpunta kame sa basement ng simbahan para maghanap ng gagamitin sa re-enactment ng panunuluyan, habang naghahanap kami ng puting tela, nakakita ako ng parang dura box na lalagyan, then ng buksan namin sabay-sabay nakita namin ang isang lumang litrato na nakaframe (sosyal, may frame), alam nyo yung parang class pictyur na black & white, parang ganun, at ng iaangat ng kasama ko yung larawan biglang nakaramdam kami ng malamig na hangin mula sa aming likuran dahilan para muli naming ibalik ang larawan sa kanyang lalagyan, at ilang segundo pa nakaamoy kami ng di maipaliwanag na amoy at muli ilang sandali pa biglang bumunghalit ng tawa ang isa kong kasama upang sabihin na siya'y napautot sa takot.

TIME'S TOP 10 HEROES
10. MUELMAR MAGALLANES

REMEMBER THE TYPHOON ONDOY(KETSANA) THAT HIT MANILA & SOME NEARBY PROVINCES LAST OCTOBER OF THIS YEAR. THERE ARE SOME STORIES OF HEROISM THAT IS FLUSHED AWAY AS THE RAVAGING FLOOD PASSED BY & ONE OF THOSE IS MUELMARS STORY. DOZENS ARE PERISHED IN THIS CALAMITY & ONE OF BRAVEST OF THE BRAVE EMERGED...AND TIME HONORED HIS BRAVERY...

TO THOSE WHO DOES NOT KNOW THE STORY READ THIS...

An 18-year-old construction worker braved rampaging floods in the Philippines to save more than 30 people, but ended up sacrificing his life in a last trip to rescue a baby girl and her mother who were being swept away on a styrofoam box

Family members and people who Muelmar Magallanes saved have hailed the young man a hero, as his body lay in a coffin at a makeshift evacuation centre near their destroyed Manila riverside village.

"I am going to be forever grateful to Muelmar," said Menchie Penalosa, the mother of the six-month-old girl whom he carried to safety before being swept away himself. "He gave his life for my baby. I will never forget his sacrifice."

Mr Magallanes was at home on Saturday with his family when tropical storm Ketsana unleashed the heaviest rains in more than 40 years on the Philippine capital and surrounding areas.

At first the family, long used to heavy rains, paid little attention to the storm.

But Mr Magallanes and his father quickly decided to evacuate the family once they realised the river 800 metres away had burst its banks.

With the help of an older brother, Mr Magallanes tied a string around his waist and attached it one-by-one to his three younger siblings, whom he took to higher ground. Then he came back for his parents.

But Mr Magallanes, a strong swimmer, decided to go back for neighbours trapped on rooftops.

He ended up making many trips, and eventually saved more than 30 people from drowning, witnesses and survivors said.

Tired and shivering, Mr Magallanes was back on higher ground with his family when he heard Ms Penalosa screaming as she and her baby were being swept away on the polystyrene box they were using in an attempt to cross the swift currents.

He dived back in after the mother and daughter, who were already a few metres away and bobbing precariously among the debris floating on the brown water.

"I didn't know that the current was so strong. In an instant, I was under water. We were going to die," said Ms Penalosa, her eyes welling with tears and voice choking with emotion.

"Then this man came from nowhere and grabbed us. He took us to where the other neighbours were, and then he was gone," Ms Penalosa said.

Ms Penalosa and other witnesses said an exhausted Mr Magallanes was simply washed away amid the torrent of water.

Neighbours found his body on Sunday, along with 28 others who perished amid Manila's epic flooding. The official death toll stands at 100 with 32 missing.


Standing next to his coffin, Mr Magallanes' parents paid tribute to their son.

"He always had a good heart," said his father, Samuel.

"We had already been saved. But he decided to go back one last time for the girl."

His mother, Maria Luz, wept as she described her son as incredibly brave.

"He saved so many people, but ended up not being able to save himself."

...so anu guys, ano pang hinihintay nyo tanong na...
REFRESHING... 2009

The time this month (december) arrived, until now that the simbang gabi started, I've also started recollecting my good & bad, my success & failures, my joys & sadness, also the fullness & lackness of the year 2009...Ganun ba talaga pag malapit ka ng magburtdae at tumanda, nagiging masyadong ma-EMO? HEHEHE...

ON SUCCESS & FAILURES...
Lahat tayo siguro may masasabing nagtagumpay ako o di kaya nama'y i failed, gaano man kaliit o kalaki ito. Pero magkaganun pa man nagtagumpay man o hindi, we need to thank papa Jesas for making us alive every moment & everyday of our life. To name few of my success' this year, first I accomplished to helped my parents to finished my sisters studies, then, I made a trusted friend more than 10('coz usually, every year i only got 5~7), of course, I made blog & a blogger's friend around the globe wherein you are one of those, hindi ko na isinasama diyan ang pagtumbling tumbling ko pa sa mga class S bloggers...at meron pa pala, level 23 na ako sa farmville considering that i just started playing last week of november, hehehe...

Failures, my dream to go somewhere became a dream forever, & I had a failed relationship this year.

ON JOYS & SADNESS...
Everyday of our lives we are seeking on how to filled our life with joy, sinu ba naman ang ayaw maging masaya, kaya nga lang there are times na we feel sad. Sadness na kahit anung gawin mong way para kalimutan ang lahat andun pa din at still bugging you hanggang sa pagtulog. I was filled with joy this year when i met my girl & suddenly kasabay ng nalalapit na pagtatapos ng taon we also ended our everything we started...(To my girl: I'm so sorry about what happened, hindi ko man nasabi sayo ang mga reasons ko, sana mapatawad mo ako, siguro talaga lang na, i'm not meant for you, anyways thanks for the love & understanding, siguro tama ka, insensitive ako.)

ON FULLNESS & LACKNESS...
FULLNESS kase nag-gain na naman ako ng weight this year (everyday kase im full,heheheh)
LACK, kase kulang na man sweldo ko, tarantadong mga chinese yan, chinese talaga...sana bumawi sila sa chinese new year (magbigay ng hong pao)
LACK, kase hindi ko mabibili ang gift at pabirthday ko sa sarili ko na CANON EOS-DIGITAL...huhuhu, sana may maggift sa akin.
FULL, kase still kumpleto pa din ang aming pamilya inspite & despite of anything & everything that happened, our relationship is still intact.
FULLNESS, kase anu man nagyari, anu man ang nagawa ko sa sarili at sa kapwa ko, mabuti man o masama, andiyan pa din si PAPA JESUS na patuloy na nagpapatawad at palaging open arms kung akoy tanggapin...Papa Jesas, (sana po may mga mabuting puso na magregalo sa akin ng CANON na camera ngayong pasko, dyowk lang po) sana po magkaroon na ng WORLD PEACE...
3 THINGS in LIFE - 3
Three Things in life that can destroy a MAN.
WINE, PRIDE, & ANGER


WINE
Yes, WINE or any alcoholic drinks...true to me because one time when i got drunk i found myself unlocking a girls room door on my dormitory. And according to those who saw me i left my slipper on the the stairs on 3rd floor before i went up to 4th floor, where the girls room are located. Thats one of my embarrasing moment as of this year. And that destroy my dignity here especially to those who are secretly admires me (as if, meron)...hehehe


PRIDE
In our life sometimes we need or we must swallow our PRIDE, especially to us, OFW. Yun bang kailangan mong iaccept ang kahit ano para lang sa pamilya at sa mga mahal mo sa buhay. When i first flew, way back 2003, and as a graduate of an engineering course, mahirap tanggapin na magiging operator ka at mahirap din yung ikaw yung inuutusan, pero kailangan mong i-step aside ang pride at education mo just for the future & security of your family. Marami sa ating OFW ay graduate, pero sa hirap ng buhay sa pilipinas ay napipilitang magtrabaho sa mga blue collar job sa ibang bansa, for the sake of... better life & love for the family. But then as you grow older hindi pala dapat na laging ganon, you need to learn & realize na someway somehow kailangan mo ng changes, kaya kung may maipapakita kang talino, talento at sipag ipakita mo para sa next level of your life.


ANGER
ANGER, galit, sama ng loob, pare-pareho lang yan. Pag pinagpatuloy mo ang ganyang ugali at asal baka lang maaga kang mamatay dala ng STROKE. I remember a story on my old town in Batangas, nang dahil sa lupa nagkaroon ng samaan ng loob ang magkakapatid na ikinamatay ng isa dahil sa hindi pantay na hatiaan. Kaya folks imbes na magtanim ng galit, poot, at sama ng loob sa kapwa, magjoin ka na lang sa advocate ni lordcm on smiling. Hindi lang nakakawala ng stress ang pagsmile, bagkus nakakatulong pa itong ixercise ang atin mukha.
WALANG KWENTANG POSTE
Its been a week when i left my account, pero parang one year na ang nakalipas. Unang una sa lahat nais kong magpasalamat sa mga taong dumalaw sa bahay ko kahit wala ako, sa mga nagcare maglinis at maghardin, tenchu, tenchu...hehehe. Nga pala hapi bertday at meri krimas kay YANIE, painom ka naman kahit tubig na may asin, dahil binati kita ngayong december kahit noong november ang bertdae mo...hehehe. (seryoso), sorry pala ngayon lang ako ngkataym bumati sayo ng hapi bertday, hiatus eh. Taz dun sa mga may AIDS, tandaan nyo kasama nyo ako at kaisa sa inyong adhikain (wala lang kase world AIDS month ba ngayon, ah basta yung may ribbon na pula na nakikita sa MTV channel, hehehehe)...And since nalalapit na din ang aking kaarawan... wala lang gusto ko lang sabihin, walang pakialaman, blog ko to...sa may mga mabubuting puso, ang nais ko lang po ay isama nyo po sa inyong prayers ang lahat ng mga batang nagiging biktima ng karahasang nagaganap sa ibat-ibag parte ng katawan este ng mundo pala. Yun lang po at MERRY KRISMAs in advanced.
Happy WEEKEND Bloggers!!!

NEW MOON/BAGONG BUWAN

Bago pa man gawin ang Twilight movie at ngayon ay ang usap-usapan ng bayan na follow up nito na NEW MOON, ay nauna na itong gawin ng isang tanyag na direktor sa Pilipinas sa pamamagitan ni Marilou Diaz-Abaya. Ipinanganak noong 2001 sa mga sinehan ang BAGONG BUWAN. Di ba sosyal habang si Stephanie Mayer ay hubot hubad ng nagsusulat ng kanyang NEW MOON ay ipinapalabas na ito sa atin. Yun nga lang istorya ito ng mga kapatid nating Muslim sa Mindanao.

At dahil sa December 4 pa ang showing ng NEW MOON dito sa amin, (nakakainip maghintay dahil sa dami ng bloggers na nagbigay ng reviews at sypnosis ng istorya, nakakawalang gana ng panoorin...), pinagtiyagaan ko na lang muna itong BAGONG BUWAN ni Cesar Montano. At dahil hindi rin ako si Mario Bautista para magbigay ng movie review, bahala ka ng humiram sa video city o sa kahit saang DVD/CD rentals na malapit sa inyong suking tindahan. Basta ang masasabi ko lang nakatulog ako habang pinapanood ito, hehehehe... dahil siguro sa malamig na panahon at nagkakamot ng betlog (simula na ng winter kasi dito). At kung tatanungin nyo ako kung bakit bagong buwan ang title, ay hindi ko rin alam, kung gusto nyong alamin tawagan nyo na lang si tita marilou sa numerong nagsisimula sa zero to nine, bahala na kayong gumawa ng combination.

3 THINGS in LIFE - 2
Three things in life to STARDOM:

Dream:
Libre ang mangarap, kaya simulan mo ng mangarap ng mga bagay na wala sa 'yo. Kung kasingganda ka ni angel locsin tapos ang boses mo ay katulad ng kay gus abelgas aba'y ano pang hinihintay mo magSOCOOOo ka na este magsimula ka ng magimadyin ng ala-regine na boses...

"Kung hindi ngayon, Kelan pa..."
(from Sister Stella L movie)


Believe:
Magtiwala ka sa sarili mo, ibig sabihin karirin mo na ang pagiging kapalmuks mo. Lahat tayo may angking talento at kakayahan. Konting iyak at paawa epek, makukuha mo din ang simpatya ng tao...hehehe. Kaya magtiwala ka at umpisahan mo ito sa sarili mo. Tingnan nyo ang babaeng ito...



Survive:
Kung di ka nakapasa sa Survivor Philippines audition, sori ka, hindi para sa 'yo yun.Pero wag mawalan ng pag-asa dahil sa araw araw nating buhay, para ka na ring nasa survivor, kailangan mong magsurvive at lagpasahan ang lahat ng hamon ng buhay, kung hindi, kawawa ka. Sa estado ng ating bansa kailangan nating lumaban at harapin ang totoong karera ng buhay.

"I'm a survivor,
I'm not gonna give up,
I'm not gon' stop,
I'm gonna work harder,
I'm a survivor,
I'm gonna make it,
I will survive,
Keep on survivin'."
(from Destiny's Child SURVIVOR)
TAIWAN...Touch Your Heart
Kung sa atin sa pinas si regine at apple de ap ang kumakanta para ipromote ang turismo sa bansa. Dito sa bansang itinuring ko ng ikalawang lupa ay ang mga damuhong ito ang tagapagpakilala ng turismo (ayun eh kapag sila ang nanalo sa pacontest...hahaha). At dahil sa ngayon lang nauso ang nobody ng wondergirls dito, ito ang tema nila. Heto silipin nyo...

3 THINGS in LIFE
Three things in life that once gone, never come back:
TIME, WORDS, & OPPORTUNITY

TIME:
As they said, time is GOLD, so anything that you can do today, do it right now, not tomorrow, or the other day. Time is free, but its priceless. You cant own it, but you can use it. You cant keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it, it never comes back.

WORDS:
Watch your thoughts, for they become WORDS.
Watch your word, for they become ACTION.
So, before you act think it first, that no one else get hurt.
They said, SORRY is the hardest words to say.

OPPORTUNITY:
Times goes by so fast, people go in & out in our life.
Dont missed the opportunity to say how they are mean to you.
Actually opportunity never lost, once you missed it...
It fly to others.


So, dont waste your time, grope for the best word to say & never missed the opportunity to say 'I LOVE YOU' to our love ones & thank GOD for having a wonderful life & world that we are enjoying right now.
LIFE is too short.
FILL IN the BLANK
Who said fill in the blank is easy?


On my 50th post I would like all of you guys to try yourself fill this blank in, by answering YES or NO and see what you've got.



(Blank), I am not a normal person.





BAHAY KUBO by FRENCH CHOIR
When we were still a kid, the first song that our mother introduced to us is the 'Bahay Kubo. Then it was followed by our teachers on prep or nursery school. And through the years, from our forefathers up to this generation, we still introducing this folklore song to our kids.

And as i hopped John Lapus' blog, he mentioned on one of his post that he is tearfully amazed watching on facebook, this all-male French choir, singing our very own folksong. And since that he did not embeded the video on his blog, I searched it via youtube. While watching the video, i had mixed emotion (happy/amazed/proud) & tears are shed on my eyes (yung left eye lang ang may luha...joke), to this young and talented children from France singing our own song. It’s really amazing how clearly they uttered the lyrics of the song considering they are not Filipinos, especially to the talong part.

Maitrise des Hauts de France is the group's name. Founded in 1972, The choir comprise about two dozen boys and young men from schools, colleges and universities in and around Lambersart, near Lille in northern France.

These children carry the graceful beauty of singing to every corner of the world. Through the universal language of music they delight all audiences.

Last 2007, they performed at the North Arlington, New Jersey where they sang our very own BAHAY KUBO. To prove here is the video, hope that you amazed too.



13 facts on Friday the 13th

Is it true that Friday the 13th is unlucky? Many superstitious & beliefs, folklore & urban legends says that these day accompanied by this number is bad & unlucky. As for me, early this morning about 1:10 AM i totally messed up on my work, i did a lot of troubles that resulted to do a written report for my boss on what happened. I hated doing this kind of stuff.

Well, anyways, listed below are my compilation of 13 facts about friday the 13th.

1. Friday the 13th occurs when the thirteenth day of a month falls on Friday. (of course naman)

2. The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia, as well as friggatriskaidekaphobia. Triskaidekaphobia is fear of the number 13. (nose bleed, paki-ispell in 1 minute)

3. In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of completeness,(e.g.12 months in a year, 12 signs of the zodiac, 12 gods of Olympus, 12 labors of Hercules, 12 tribes of Israel, 12 apostles of Jesus, 12 days of Christmas and 12 eggs in a dozen.) whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, transgressing this completeness. There is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the Last Supper or a Norse myth, that having thirteen people seated at a table will result in the death of one of the diners.

4.Theory of origin: The Knights Templar were a monastic military order founded in Jerusalem in 1118 C.E., whose mission was to protect Christian pilgrims during the Crusades. Over the next two centuries, the Knights Templar became extraordinarily powerful and wealthy. Threatened by that power and eager to acquire their wealth, King Philip secretly ordered the mass arrest of all the Knights Templar in France on Friday, October 13, 1307 - Friday the 13th

5.The Opening ceremony of Athens Olympic Games took place on Friday, August 13, 2004.

6.Four of the twelve films in the Friday the 13th series, was released on a Friday the 13th.

7.Resident Evil 5 was released in the US and UK on Friday March 13 2009.

8.Fidel Castro was born on Friday, Aug. 13, 1926.

9. Most of the buildings, hotels & condo unit renumbering room assignments to eliminated the room #13 & the floor after 12th is 14th floor.

10.Every month that begins on a Sunday will contain a Friday the 13th, and there is at least one Friday the 13th in every calendar year.

11.Every Friday the 13th thousands of bikers ride to the small town of Port Dover Ontario, Canada.

12.Many cities do not have a 13th Street or a 13th Avenue.

13.The sequel (reboot of a second film) of Friday the 13th series is planned to be released Friday August 13, 2010.

Remember, we, ourselves do our own path & destiny & not by any superstitious, urban legends & beliefs that our oldies taught us.

LIFE

The most difficult phase of life

Is not when no one, understands you;
It is when you dont understand yourself.

For everything you have missed, you have gained something;
And for everything you gain, you lose something else.

It is about your outlook towards life.
You can either regret or rejoice.

Dont write your name on the sand, waves will wash it away.
Dont write your name in the sky, wind may blow it away.

Thats where it will stay.

In life just dont trust people, who change their feelings in time...
Instead trust those people, whose feelings remains the same, even when time changes.

Never explain yourself to anyone.
Because the person who likes you doesnt need it,

And the person who dislikes you wont believe it.

(And if you asked me, whats the connection of the picture above, well simply, LIFE is like a winding road.)

Which Physics Theory are You?
To kill boredom, I took a quiz from facebook this morning. About, "Which Physics Theory are you?" And after a long questions from 1 to 6, the result is this,

Which Physics Theory are you?

Relativity




And it explained like this...

Rex took the Which Physics Theory are you? quiz and the result is Relativity

You're like Einstein. You admire the unbounded structure of the world. You'd love the universe to be simple and elegant. You always find yourself running out of time because your clock slows down.

And this is my wacky explanation goes...

Relativity: I had many relatives both on my mother & fathers side. Hahaha.

Like Einstein: One of my teacher in elementary threw an eraser on me, bad thing is I'd never become as inteligent as Einstein (Shaira Luna lang ang kalevel ko, heheheh)

Admires the unbounded structure of the world: Eiffel Tower and Louvre. Indeed a great structures. Hehehe.

Loves the universe to be simple: I love Miss Universe candidates on the swimsuit competition...hehehehe

Always finds yourself running: I'm not a thieffffff (Hindi ako magnanakaw)... LOLZ.  Simply because i'm always late on my work, good thing is i have a lot of leaves that i can used to fill in my tardiness. One of my co-worker said, "alam mo suko na ang alarm clock sa 'yo". Sounds funny but hate to admit thats true. :(

Lesson to be learned: "Huwag magbilang ng manok, kung ang alaga mo ay itik!!!".

YULETIDE SEASON IS APPROACHING

Cool wind.

Divisoria.

Wish list.

Decors.

Snow in some part of the Globe.

Carols.

Santa.

These are some of many things or signs that the yuletide season is approaching. And no matter how busy we are, still, this season is the best season of the year, simply because we celebrate the son of God's natal day. For many this is also the time for gathering, reunion, giving, thanksgiving, party and of course longggggggg vacation.

This season is also the season of love. A season where everyone expresses their feelings & concerns towards the other. Bad thing is, only this season it happened.

CHRISTMAS is giving. Giving that not expects anything in return. Giving that comes from the heart, no matter how small it is. Remember that GOD gave his son for the LOVE of us.

So, lets make our day, everyday... like CHRISTMAS.

And a few days before CHRISTMAS is my birthday... :)
