LOVE and PEACE on Christmas!

Christians around the world are celebrating and commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ today. It is noteworthy to say that we spread peace and love around the world and show our compassion to the poor, the neglected, people who suffered from the consequences of war, the continuous persecution of Christians around the world, the refugees and migrant people who are leaving their war torn countries to seek refuge to a safer and peaceful place.  We need to remember that Jesus Christ teachings is to spread love, first and foremost.  It is were we Christians had been indoctrinated to this teachings.  People need to understand that LOVE is what we need to have peace in this world, so we can experience the freedom from fear of violence, harmony together even with other religions.  I'm always praying for peace on earth, because we are watching everyday the horrors of wars and conflicts  of other nations, terrorism, the civil war in Syria and some parts of Africa.  I believe, we Christians need to set an example to the whole world that we are for peace and not for war. I wish all Christian nations a blessed and peaceful Christmas!

Miss Universe 2015 is Miss Philippines

Congratulations to our very own Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach for winning the title of Miss Universe 2015 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas last December 20, 2015.  No matter what happened during the announcement of the winner, she truly deserved to take the crown of Miss Universe!  It's her destiny to be Miss Universe because she is intelligent, articulate, beautiful, and humble. This is a wonderful gift to all our countrymen and all Filipinos around the world during this Christmas season.  Mabuhay ang Pilipinas! Mabuhay ka Miss Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach!  You made us proud again!

What a wondeful day to start and celebrate my birthday!  Cold and breezy morning!  Thank God for the life you had given me.  Still going strong and healthy inspite of the tough times and challenges I had been through during 2015.  We still have 17 days to go to greet 2016!  I promise myself to bounce back this coming new year.  I would like to thank my family for all the support they had given me especially my mother, my sister, and my son who are always there through thick and thin.  They are my inspiration in my life.

Missing in December

After five years of going vacation every year in December, this is the first time I will skip to celebrate my Christmas and New Year. Actually,  I had my original plan to leave this December 5 but due to the long vacation extension of the Indian colleague in our department whom I'm relieving, I have to change my vacation plan early next year. I will be missing so much the camaraderie and spirit of Christmas season with my family and relatives this year.  For an OFW like me, Christmas and New Year is so special for me because this is the season I can enjoy my vacation with the family.  Bonding together like going to the mall, shopping together, eating and dining together in a special restaurant, and most of all celebrating Christmas together especially during Noche Buena and on the eve of the coming new year watching the fireworks outside our house are all the things I will be missing this year.  Anyway, I will just make up with my family during my vacation early next year.  But for sure, I will miss them so much.  I will try to make my Christmas happy here in the kingdom, alone. 

I will miss this one

This one

And the camaraderie
