Grieving for an Idol!

I was still half asleep when my stepdad came into their room which is where I am camping out at the moment. heheheheh I know I should be ashamed of myself for taking away their privacy but it's the only room with air conditioner and it's really hot. Anyways, he came up to get something when he just casually let it slip out that Michael Jackson is dead. My mom was like "What? ARe you serious?" She didn't really believed him and so did I. It was like in my mind him dying young is quite impossible but the minute I came downstairs I hopped in the computer and there was the confirmation Michael had indeed died of cardiac arrest, at least that was what was said in the article. I was really sad because although he hasn't been active much lately but he is an icon in the music industry and his death is a great blow to the music world. I know that a lot of the fans from all over the world are mourning his death and I am one of them. Goodbye Michael and I hope that you are at peace now.

In another side of the story I wonder what would happen to his children. Would they remain faceless or would their pictures be posted for all to see since I for one haven't seen any of his children. I do hope that they will be ok and that they won't live a sad life.

Happy Father's Day!

Today is a very special day because it is a day to celebrate our dads. I would like to extend my warmest and fattest greetings to all the wonderful fathers out there "Happy Happy Father's Day ." I know that I never really had a dad growing up but I am very thankful because I had a lot of surrogates to say thanks to. To my grandfather, uncles and my stepdad thank you for always being there for me and my sister while we were growing up. You are all the best I could have asked for in this world. I thank God for giving me the chance to know you. So what about you guys have you said thanks to your dads?

Night out with my cousins!

It was the night of independence day when my cousin Regi the flight attendant recently came home for a vacation and invited me with my other cousins on a night out. We went to Mr. A's which is a nice place located on top of a mountain. You can see the beautiful lights of the city below. The air is cool and nice and the atmosphere is just right. We ordered some cocktails which were vodkatini, mai tai and weng-weng. I had the mai tai, it was really really nice and not so strong but I did taste some of the other drinks they ordered. We talked and talked and we took some pictures. The table was just illuminated with candles so it would be a romantic dinner if I was on a date. Well we stayed there til 12 midnight and until the batteries ran on the camera. It was my first time to that said place and I want to go back there again. Well on with the pictures.

A journey inside my bag!

A few days ago as I was going out I just thought I'd share what's always in my bag whenever I go out. It's a small bag given to me by Aunt in the states. It's yellow and you all know that's my favorite color so inspired by the bag raids I saw in SNN. I thought I'd do one of my own. I took a pic of what's all inside the bag but I also took a video. Sorry if the quality isn't great I really didn't think much about it til I was finished. So what about you guys what's in your bags?

Independence Day !

Today is the 12th and it's independence day here in my country. Lots of activities going on both rallies and celebration. Rallies because a lot of people are protesting against the resolution passed in congress about constituent assembly. I've never followed politics and I know should as a good citizen of my country but for the life of me can't understand what is being rallied about. What really is constituent assembly? How bad will it really affect the country? It's good to fight for a cause but it's sad to see that most of the people in the rally don't even know what they are fighting about. A lot of big political figures are using it to gain votes or popularity among the people. I don't know but in my opinion they should be worried about a lot of other things right now like the global recession plus the outbreak in A (H1N1).Although there are not that many cases confirmed here in the Philippines but it's close to a hundred already. It is quite frightening that one could get sick from this. As far as I know thought there hasn't been a death yet because of this virus and I really hope there won't be. It really scares the heck out of me. It makes you feel like a prisoner really because you don't want to leave the house in fear that you might contract this virus. So much for independence huh? This is another kind of prison and I really pray that we will come out of this victorious.

Elaborate Plan!

My mom always told me that God has long and elaborate plans. I really believe her since our life is a good example of that. We all used to live in Ormoc City. My mom was married at young age of 15 and she had me at 16. It wasn't a very good life for her or for us at one time because of all the family troubles. So mom practically raised us herself with help from my loving grandparents. Eventually we came to cebu and studied here and it is here that I really grew up. After this I believe that it was all part of God's plan for my family. You might ask me why, well if my parents didn't separate we wouln't have come to cebu and my grandparents wouldn't have followed us here and establish a business. In 1990 or was it 1991 there was a big flash flood in Ormoc, a lot of people died and business died as well. So you see God has already prepared my grandparents to have a business here in Cebu or all of us in the family would have been so lost financially. We are not rich mind you but we are comfortable compared to most people. Eventually we all grew up here in cebu.

Then my mom met my stepdad who was a martial arts instructor and is just a year older than me. And yes he is a great guy and no I don't mind that he is younger than my mom. After all she has been through she deserves to be happy and John makes her happy so we are all happy for her. It is through John that we met a very good friend of ours Anton. He is an englishman who has a martial arts school in england.He came here to study Escrima (arnis) which is what my stepdad is teaching. It was his first time here and he didn't know anybody but mom felt that he is a good guy so she invited him to our humble home and that was 12 years ago. He has become our benefactor. He has been extremely good to us. Through him we met a lot of wonderful people. Through Anton we met Linda and her kids and they were the one who gifted us with this computer thus paved way for my sister to meet her wonderful husband online. My sister is now a happily married woman with 2 daughters. So you see everything just fell into place.Isn't that just amazing how everything was planned?God really is good.
