Buhay MBA

Masasabi ko na di na ako baguhan sa pangingibang bayan. Siguro naman sapat na ang 7 taon para maihalintulad ako na estudyante sa kursong batsilyer ng agham ng TIYAGA at SAKRIPISYO. (nakapag MBA pa!)

Isa lang ako sa libo-libong Pilipino na nangarap na maiahon ang pamilya sa lumalalang sakit ng lipunan – KAHIRAPAN. Isang epidemya na maituturing hindi lang sa pilipinas bagkus sa karamihang bansa. Epidemyang patuloy na humahamon sa ating lahat para hanapan ng lunas. (bakuna). Isang sakit na susubok sa ating tiyaga at pagpupursigi sa buhay.

Maaga akong naulila sa ama, 7 taong gulang; halos kakaumpisa pa lamang matutong magbilang at sumulat. Hindi ito naging madali o hadlang sa aming pamilya na ipagpatuloy ang laban sa buhay. Mahirap at malubak ang mga daan na nilakbay na halos sumuko na akong mangarap. Siguro nga isa itong pagsubok sa mamamayang Pilipino, na sa bawat tagumpay ay may kaakibat na paghihirap at pagpupursigi.

Hindi madali maging isang OFW – bagong bayani. Isa na yata ito sa pinakamahirap na yugto ng aking buhay. Isang pagsubok na humubog sa aking pagkatao. Madaming nagaakala na kapag nangibang bansa ka, ay para ka nang si “super inday at ang magic bibe” (nangingitlog ng ginto). Sa bawat araw na ginugugol ng isang OFW sa dayuhang bansa, ay ang bawat araw ng pangungulila.

Mga bagong gadget para kay kuya (kabi-kabilang overtime); mahahalimuyak na pabango para kay bunsoy ( pagtitiis ng gutom dahil sa pagtitipid); mga bagong damit para kay nanay (ilang gabing tahimik na pag-iyak sa kwarto).

Sa mga bawat litrato na pinapadala o pinopost sa FB na nakangiti, sa likod nito at ang paghahangad na sana kasama ko ang inspirayson ng pagpupursigi ko.

Isa sa mga natutunan ko sa pagiging OFW ay nobody is in charge of my happiness except me, that I should not be jealous of what others may have and what others may have achieved. Minsan lagi nalang tayo nagrereklamo at minsan naghahangad ng higit sa iba. Simple  lang naman ang recipe sa buhay – Smile and laugh more! Mas masaya mas masagana! =)

Pero sabi nga nila, it is best to work up an appetite that will give you strength and endurance. Ang buhay ay hindi magiging madali kaya stay FOCUS and POSITIVE. Stick with your goals and objectives, learn to adapt challenges and live with it. Don’t compare our life to others, they have their own way facing and living life, besides we have no idea what their journey is all about.

Hindi naman kasi madali ang buhay, life is a learning process. Challenges and problems are part of the curriculum that once we passed it, whatever lessons we’ve learn will last like a lifetime.

Saling Pusa

Madalas ka bang maging SALIM PUSA o SALINGKET?  Siguro hindi kumpleto ang kabataan kung di naging salingket o salimpusa. Taglay ang kamusmusan at kasabikan na makisali sa laro, nakakatuwang balikan ang alaala ng kahapon na maging salingpusa.

Ngiti ng Pag-asa


“Hindi sa mga ngiping mapuputi nanggagaling ang GANDA ng isang NGITI,

Ito ay sa SINSERIDAD ng taong sa atin ay BUMABATI.”

Salamat sa mababait at mabubuting sponsors ng SMILE Quotes Contest :

Our smile is our strongest weapon. It sends positive message to many people and helps us to look good and be at our best. Sometimes we are often too withdrawn into ourselves or too irritable. Try and learn to smile and everything will be better.

Tara! NGITI tayo… :)

Year 2010 was indeed a year full of abundant blessings for me. To name some of the major or greatest gifts I have received, please move on. It was early last year when I got my job which keeps my bank account revolving, of course. The first few shifts was one of the toughest days of my life that I learned to survive through HIS guidance. Little by little I was able to overcome the so called “adjustment period”. All the while I thought life will just keep getting better, not until one of the biggest challenge comes along our way. Yes, I have my career going but then my family was starting to fall apart. I thought I would give up but prayers can really move mountains. Inch by inch, harmony finds its way into our home. I don’t know if it is because of the impact that long awaited gift has brought into our family or its just because of the natural cause from my parents love for each other(I know there’s still some that is so powerful to bind them again.*wink*). And lastly, as what I always say to my friends and my family, I am so blessed to have my answered prayer.


A package deal sent from HEAVEN to be with me. Yes indeed, it was only a few months ago but the love in our hearts just keep on burning more and more. I wake up every morning realizing that I fall in love with him over and over. I know for sure that it is possible because our relationship rooted from something deeper, something unusual and something planned by destiny. It came in an unexpected time, place and situation. Something that I could not imagine I would go through and will survive. My God’s Greatest Gift, Christopher AKA “Topher/Kris/Topexpress” who inspires me to treasure my family more than anyone else, who taught me how to be a better person not just for me but for the benefit of other people as well. He made me do things that I did not know I could, he opens a lot of doors for me to appreciate myself worth a lot more.

I would say that with all those gifts, I could not ask for more in 2010. In return, I would want to offer my arms to those who are in need, my touch to those who are in pain, my smile to those who are suffering, my ears to those who needs a listener, my mind and my heart to those who needs understanding and my generous self to those who I love the most. I will never get tired of loving because I have faith that I am receiving more than what I have asked for and that I will continue to receive those from the people I love the most. As one of my favorite lines from a movie I recently seen, “I only ask for a bread and yet you gave me burger with fries in a combo meal.” What more could I ask for?!


Let me say this quick – I cannot ask for more for i got the best and i must say… Taragis! daig ko pa nanalo sa lotto – JACKPOT ako! yehhhbaahh! ^_^

True Wedding Planner

Mga ka blogs! it’s been a while, been busy for an event of my life. :D Ang pagiging ISA! :D YES! I DO! ahehehehe akin nang tinutuldukan ang aking buhay binata at hinaharap ang buhay na kasama ang babaeng pinaka mamahal ko. si MICHELLE MARIE SALAZAR – LUZANA.

Some of you might not know our story (masyado kami kasi private!) lels! I supposed to post this entry before kaso sa sobrang busy nga(busy-busihan mode lagi) en besides, hindi ako nagsulat nito. Kaya di ko na kau bibitinin pa, have fun in reading. Ito ay entry ng aking butihing may bahay. :D naks! sarap naman!!!! ayieeeeee

This is how our STORY goes:

Four years ago, I planned my wedding with someone I thought I could love and spend the rest of my life with. Truthfully, God is so good for not letting me pursue with that plan. HE made life easier but things gets harder at the same time (magulo pero un talaga un! walang basagan ng trip!page ko toh!). In short, I broke up with that unworthy guy ( as I termed it according to my dictionary! wag ulit basag trip! ndi niya toh mababasa kasi ndi kami friends!). After him, I tried to open up my heart again, explored love and all the mystery that compromises with it. Luckily, I have found someone(“doki”), but not so lucky of having me because I’m not ready to give my whole heart to him yet. It seems like I’m still trying to mend my broken heart and soul. I have lost myself in love and tried putting it all back (hirap pala ng ganun!futek!).

As time passes by, I realized that loving with unfixed heart is much more difficult as compared to being alone. Knowing that someone is being “fooled”, making him believe that you love him as much as he does made me feel the guilt and its killing me. When I got the chance, I broke up with him believing that I don’t really love him that much. A month passed, its like nothing. Two months, still the same. But when I heard that he’s having a GF (amfuts!hindi man lang kasi humabol!kabud na lang nag let go!aruy!hmpf!). That’s the time I said to myself, OK I’m done. I will wait until my heart is whole again and then the next time I will be in a relationship I assure myself, that  person will be the one with whom I’m gonna spend the rest of my life. November, December, January, February, March, April, May, June, July, finally, there he was.

During the first couple of month things are all well. I know he’s busy with a lot of things, but I understand that. All of a sudden, he came to me telling me that he’s not ready yet for any commitment. My heart was crushed once again!(Amfuts!halos kasing sakit nung unang break up namin ni unworthy guy na jowaerts ko ng almost five years!). No choice but to move on! Maybe that’s one thing I should be thankful for, they all taught me how to be strong and how to let go of the things which are not meant for me. Another way to say this is that, there is something or somebody who is much worth of my love, so why waste every single beat of my heart with jerks!(tumah?!bitterness!?jokesness!). I found a rebound after him(boss) who also helped me to move on, but yeah, rebounds are not healthy to anybody. Life during those times was in chaos(ang dami din kasing achuchuchu!). During those days, I felt like I am the weakest person. I gave up on that challenge right on the spot. (kavoom!lost ang beauty ng echuserang “frog prince”!). All the while, I thought I was still in love with “the boss”(cologne eto, HUGO BOSS), so I decided to try getting back to him when he started to communicate with me again. We went out together. Going back to the getting to know each other stage, exchanging text messages(ate high scholl ka ulit?!). He’s trying to set some ideas regarding proposal and weddings and talking about marriage and settling down (which I never heard from him before, ano nakain mo?!). As we went on, it made me realize that I could not see myself with this person at all. He’s not the one I wanted to share my everything with(nagdamot ang lola nio!).

Until one time, God sent me somebody whom I believe HE wanted me to grow old with. He does a lot of things that I also enjoys doing. He makes me laugh at his silliest jokes. I just loved being myself when I speak with him, whether its over the phone, chat boxes or even text messages. He opened up the world of love from fairy tales which felt like real (ay shrek d movie yata itow!). He really is my answered prayer. And I meant that, because he has everything that I have prayed for. The simplest things in the world that makes me really happy, the simplest uttered words that keeps my hEARt melting and fall in love with him all over again. Yes, we’re not together for long but who cares!I have faith that God has sent him to me to be my ….(uhm, wag na lang muna baka mausog pa!), the person I would always be comfortable being  me but won’t spoiled me, the person who will teach me new things but at the same time learn with me, that somebody who will grow with me in this relationship. The person who will be the first one to cry when I’m in pain but will truly do his best to comfort me and give me strength. Somebody who worries so much not hearing from me at all (oh diba ang sweeeeet!). A person NOT PERFECT but I know is REAL, a person who commits mistakes but not a coward to accept all its consequences. Things happen for a reason, and behind all this HE has a purpose. I have faith that HE wanted me to settle down with this IMPERFECT PERSON who LOVES ME PERFECTLY, so I rest my case and will let HIM be my WEDDING PLANNER. Thank YOU for sending me YOUR GREATEST GIFT in advance. (bongga ka LORD! major major! and I SUPER LURV ET!).

 

-thanks for droppin’ by folks!;)
