My Twenty-Five Things is a post originally written in 2009. It was a game and an indirect way of getting to know each other, with an aim of establishing good relationships with others.
This world may be really busy, noisy and harsh but all it takes is a quiet time for you, to pause, sit down, pray and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. We do not really have to unearth everything, rush into fixing things that are beyond our control. Instead, we ought to know and accept responsibilities for our own deeds and know how personal limitations help you be contented with what you have.
One day our children will see our pictures and ask 'Who are these people?' And we will smile with invisible tears because a heart is touched with a strong word and you will say: 'It was them that I had the best days of my life with.’
Nobody should be too comfortable these days, not with COVID-19. We should never take chance because it is one of the pestilences, we can say, that can test how fragile our imperfect life is. (Luke 21:10,11) It chooses no one therefore, we cannot compromise our health and safety, not when we love the gift of life.
The proliferation of the false teaching about the "undying soul" actually caused so much damage than trigger hope. Why is the feeling of unworthiness creeps into one's mind easily? Is it because of lack of acceptance from others? Is it because you feel that nobody loves you?
We are constantly in fight for our sinful tendencies to err and our inherited imperfections. If asked to choose between obedience and sacrifice, which one will you choose?
Working in a BPO company was the hype years ago. Back in those days, BPO was a booming industry, offering great opportunities for new graduates like me. If you want to earn decent work experience, call center jobs can give you just what you really need: interpersonal skills, multicompetencies, discipline in work and schedules etc....

We are gifted with a conscience, an inheritance from God, a silent judge innate within us that helps us realise the right from wrong. It can excuse us from our own guilt or accuse us from either thinking or acting inappropriately.
Gratitude will liberate us from the prison of self-preoccupation. We can be assured that gratefulness will replace the plague of discontentment with a sense of appreciation.
When you have been through every single conflict in your life, regardless of your age and status, you are forced to grow up emotionally, spiritually and mature physically. It does not really matter what kind of relationship you have given up, the idea was, you indeed gave up something valuable to you...yet you are still... Continue Reading →
Humans were created with the ability to fight adversity. We are empowered but not everybody has yet to discover this ability that is why some let themselves swayed in the harsh challenges of life, stopped fighting, and gave up. Will you choose life to live or just let life go as is?
Living in the “now” means keeping it real for today and waking up to tomorrow’s new promise of life. Remember, this life is a gift so we must cherish it. We do not have the right to take it away for we are not the rightful owner.
If our conscience has gone through proper training, expect that your moral compass will remain strong despite adversity. You will be able to endure and remain grounded no matter how much challenges there would be along the way.
Deciding against a moral dilemma is always a painstaking process to begin with. It is very natural for one to minimize pain as much as possible, specifically, if our decision may compromise our close relationships and reputation.
We are all voyagers of life. Eventually, life’s challenges may pose a great threat to our well-being. We might forget to check if we are acting correctly in life or if there are more compromises than before.
Everything seems to be quick these days, 2018 is almost over. Everybody seems to be in a hurry, and the concept of “in the now” is more prominent than ever. In a day, just how many times do we hear the expression “I don’t have time for this…” or “Can you please hurry up? I... Continue Reading →
My first ever completed and accomplished KPOP drama series! I am always fascinated with law and order plots because such genre helps you think critically, thereby, letting you participate in the “watching process.” Remember (War of the Son) is one of those few series I patiently watched, and yes, its full 20 series til the...

My late Psychology professor has reminded us to “keep your personal boundaries checked” all the time. It was an expression I never really understood back then because, I was too young to comprehend how it means before. As we age, however, our comprehension skills, beyond the four walls of our classrooms extend to the so-called... Continue Reading →
Time has weathered the pact gravely, gone, in the wind, unrequited. The challenge of entering a permanent relationship such as marriage, is colossal. You get to discover new stuff on a daily basis because we are individuals who were brought up differently – culturally, traditionally or religiously. The couple’s union for a supposed perfect and...

I almost lost you nine years ago. As vivid as the daylight was and as a frightening as nightmare was, that tragic accident tested everything I have in life with you. How did I manage to live through the pain afterwards is something that I still ask myself over and over. Why did you even leave... Continue Reading →
We sugarcoat our lives, we hide our fears, our sadness. We thought we are super humans. But what happens when we signed off?
The digital world and social media have replaced the real connection amongst us resulting to increase in apathy and failed relationships. Indeed, while we were busy connecting with people around the world, our relationships to those near to us weather and fail in time because virtual reality has blinded our reasons on so many levels.
Whilst situation can change a person’s behaviors, loyalty to yourself will keep your feet on the ground and maintain your commitment to doing what is right.
I am a low maintenance woman, who, while I fancy pretty items in general, I always think its worth versus my current "needs" at a given time.
Today is the 8th of March. We recognize women around the world and their contribution to the society --corporate workers, social change contributors or leaders etc. I prefer not to mention all the relevant social issues our women encounter on a day to day basis because for now, everybody is aware of women’s struggles globally....

At times, when failure is on our doorsteps and we are consistently living in denial, life knocks us down so we can see it from a different perspective. There is a turning point in our lives when we finally say “enough,” because we need to move forward. We cannot just stay in the mess and miss all that life has in store for us.
Those who think words and language are enough to communicate, think twice. Eloquency is not confined with just the spoken and written words but understand that the power of communication goes beyond the forms and fonts. We communicate because we bridge gaps. We communicate to be understood and to be connected. #MyWeekendThoughts
