Live Your Dreams

Mahirap mag-isa sa ibang bansa. Di ko alam kung saan talaga ako kumukuha ng tiyaga at lakas para manatili dito para magtrabaho malayo sa pamilya. Di ako senti ngayon, sa katanuyan eh, medyo inspired ako dahil sa aking nararating, kahit di ito ang pangarap ko maging nung grade 1 ako, kahit hindi ito ang trabahong sini-share ko sa mga kaklase ko at teacher ko, still I am proud of who am I, where I am, and what I’ve done, sa family ko, sa mga kapatid ko, sa kapwa ko, sa lahat ng natulungan ko, sa mga milyones na na donate ko sa mga perang napautang ko na di na nabayaran.

Minsan sabi ko pa sa sarili ko, paparaktisin ko itong sayaw na ito hangga’t matuto ako nito. Hanep, astig, gusto ko lang ang moves niya. Di naman ako masyadong ambisyosa di ba? Di ba? Wahehehe…

Baby Found Dead In A Plane

Heard this terrifying news today from a colleague while dining. It is so disturbing as the plane landed in NAIA at 2:42 p.m. and the very question I ask myself, “Is it a Filipina who did this horrible act?!” I hope not!

Crew members of Etihad Airlines flight EY-428, found the baby’s body inside the toilet of Boeing 777 aircraft. I heard it came from Jakarta with a connecting flight to Abu Dhabi and going to NAIA but I am not sure yet if this is correct since I cannot get enough resources for this happened only today afternoon.

A female cabin crew who conducts a routinary inspection found the new-born baby’s body with its umbilical cord beside the trash bin inside the plane’s lavatory while she was removing the trashes for emptying.

The baby bore bruises in the right wrist and left sole, its mouth full of tissue paper apparently to minimize its cries from being heard by other passengers which caused the body to become blue.

By the time the baby was found, Etihad officials alerted medical authorities at the airport prior to landing.

The person who left the baby behind remains unidentified as the press time was held and the dead baby was brought to Rizal Funeral Homes, Pasay City.

My prayers for this very young soul, I know you are with the Lord’s hands now.

I Miss Home

Alyssa’s father visited her yesterday. From Manila to the province, he stayed for 2 nights at home. Though he wanted to spend more time with Alyssa but she is quite aloof.

She sent a text message by the time he arrived our place, asking me why he came? Though her question hurts me, I stayed positive but warm, explained that daddy really loves her but for the meantime, let’s pray that things will be ok in the future despite of our situation.

She was then calm, sounded more sweeter and babier. She told me that her days are more colorful when I am beside her (she meant last December 2007 when I was home). We texted more often nowadays, chatting almost everyday, all she says is that she miss me, she loves me, she needs me, and she feels more beautiful when we are together! Wahehehe….

Just late last year, one day, I was thinking if my daughter really loves me as her mom. If she really feel and believe that I am her mother after all, after 11 years of being apart. Though I go home every year but 30 days isn’t enough. Of course.

She told me once, “my, when I was younger, I thought you’re not my mom. But now, I am feeling it so bad that I wanted you to stay at home, with me…”

Banana *speechless*

Now she will be graduating on March, her father told me that he’ll do his best to be there on that day. For both of us.

I hate this. I am not happy now. Homesickness again. I hate it.

When Drinking Coffee In Saudi Is Illegal

When Drinking Coffee In Saudi Is Illegal – Update
The case of a 37-year old mother-of-three, arrested by religious police for being in the presence of an unrelated male at a Starbucks coffee shop in the Saudi capital, continues to make waves.

Sources close to the story tell CNN the woman in question is of Palestinian origin and holds a U.S. passport. She lives in the coastal city of Jeddah and travels on business to the more conservative capital, Riyadh, once a week.

Sources tell CNN the woman was taken away fromt the Starbucks, threatened with violence, left incommunicado for hours, forced to sign a confession and was strip searched in prison.

Sources add that the man she was with at the Starbucks, a Syrian national, is actually the woman’s employee. He has indicated that he is unwilling to speak out for fear of being deported from Saudi Arabia.

The woman, whose first name is Yara, was detained for several hours before being released to her husband. They are now both back in Jeddah.

Anong Meron Sa Malamig Na Panahon?

Kanina medyo malamig na naman ang panahon. Masarap na namang maghilata sa kama. Masarap itigil muna sa pag-ikot ang mundo. Habang tumitigil sa kakaikot ang mundo, gusto ko sanang i-rearrange ang buhay ko from the start na nadapa ako. Pipiliin ko sanang wag madapa sa panahong iyon. Pero naisip ko rin, di bale na lang, andito na ako, nasa halos kalagitnaan na ng marathon ko.

Ano nga ba sana ang dapat kong ginawa nung panahong iyon? Tama ba ang pinaggagawa ko ngayon? Sa mga di maka relate sa akin, wag niyo ng alamin hehe, kase para na akong pudpod na niyog pa ulit ulit. Bakit nga ba malalalim na naman itong iniisip ko? Hays..

Minsan sinasabi natin sana ganito na lang, sana ganyan. Sana wag ito, sana ganito na lang. Totoo palang walang kakuntentuhan ang tao sa buhay. Minsan sinabi ko na sa sarili ko na maligaya na ako sa buhay ko, anong meron ako, anong maging kahihinatnat ko dahil sa ginawa ko to paninindigan ko. Oo andun na ako, I’m doing it, I’m believing on it pero bakit napapagod na naman akooooooo??!! Bakit?! Waaaa!

Ayaw ko pa namang nag-iisip ng ganito, all the time iniiwasan kong mag-isip ng ganito. Lalo lang akong nada-down pagnag-iisip ako ng negatibo. At lalong ayoko ng magpa-lame-lame. We can’t keep up with the demands in life if we act lamely. Kelangan humabol, tumakbo, tumakbo ng may direksyon, wag nang nakapikit baka mahulog sa imburnal. tsk..

Di pa po natatapos ang sorpresa ko nitong nakaraang araw ng mga puso. Pagkatapos ng pulang kahon ko eh meron na namang bumulaga sa akin. Ito ay napakalaking regalo, mas malaki pa sa akin at mas matangkad. Di siya isang bagay, di siya nabibili, wala siyang katumbas na halaga.

Nung binuksan ko ang email ko kanina, meron akong mail from my youngest bro. I opened it and found attachments ng mga photos ng aking dalagang anak. Nakakagulat lang, parang kelan lang kami nagkita pero lalo na siyang lumalaki day by day ang bilis lang!

We must look for ways to be an active force in our own lives. We must take charge of our own destinies, design a life of substance and truly begin to live our dreams.
