Bad move... bad trip :(

We've been to places a lot of time riding our motorbike with my baby girl, I know we parents seems careless about the safety of our baby. But what can we do... this is  the only means of transportation we have... of course we could always choose commuting which cost us sometimes a thousand pesos for a day trip and the cheapest we spend for a day trip to Makati is seven hundred pesos.
We don't have that amount all the time and if we really want to go to Makati without spending much we have to take the risk and ride on the motorbike which is really crazy.
I really do hope that the Lord will grant us a car this coming year so that we'll be able to go and come home without spending that much and we don't have to stay in Makati for a night.

Had to admit...

I'm watching this and I really love it :d
I forced myself to wake up each morning to watch this fascinating animation on television (national tv gma7). I like how important friendship is to the four main character. It's their friendship that hooked me. They would rather face troubles and sufferings than let alone one face his fears and enemies!

Want to go back to Cebu

Remembering our trip last year to Cebu and thinking the lechon (roasted pork) we had made me just want to go back again. Of course I feel more excited especially this time to visit places especialy that we have our baby and every trip planned has always with a dash of excitement. It's just made me sad that all the trips we planned this year did not happen due to some important happenings. But I still believe that God had just spare us from harm reason why He cancelled our trips, and I would be forever grateful for His love and protection for me and my family.

This coming year I am hoping that the Lord would bless me with more financial blessing and make me desire prosper. Because this year I would love to go to Hongkong, Singapore, Bangkok, Cambodia, and Indonesia. I know doing this trip means a lot of money as well. But I won't stop dreaming and believing knowing my God answers prayers and make our joy completes.

My help in times...

The Lord Our Shepherd[a]
   
    The Lord is my shepherd;
      I have everything I need.
 2 He lets me rest in fields of green grass
      and leads me to quiet pools of fresh water.
 3 He gives me new strength.
   He guides me in the right paths,
      as he has promised.
 4 Even if I go through the deepest darkness,
      I will not be afraid, Lord,
      for you are with me.
   Your shepherd's rod and staff protect me.

 5 You prepare a banquet for me,
      where all my enemies can see me;
   you welcome me as an honored guest
      and fill my cup to the brim.
 6 I know that your goodness and love will be with me all my life;
      and your house will be my home as long as I live.

Tagaytay Highlands: wish I could visit you

I really haven't been anywhere this year, was not even gone to a beach  during summer time. I was kind of in a house arrest. So I'm hoping that I'll able to go sometime this month or at least next year to this beautiful place in Tagaytay (keeping my fingers crossed though).

Z cried the loudest in front of sales ladies and bystanders :)

We (hubby, Ziah and myself) went to SM (Shoe Mart - Bacoor) today to buy dress for my baby Z for our friends wedding (this gonna be my Z's first wedding). Hubby's sister was there to meet us, she actually work there but she was supposedly to go home but when she was told that we were coming she waited for us instead.

Of course... when we arrived she immediately took Z's out in our arms and off they go as we went to buy the dress. While we were still looking and deciding what should we get hubby's phone rang and there goes the loud cry of my baby. So hubby ran with all his might to get to where they are, and yup... there goes my baby still crying and crying.

It just made me smile because this aunt of hers has been asking us to take Z with her to the mall alone, but hubby don't want them to take Z co'z he knows that Z will cry sooner or later when she finally found out that mommy and daddy are not around. At least now they finally knew what we are talking about  of why we always refused them to take Z with them.

My mind wants to go but...

...my pocket says no :(.

I want to go somewhere... to relax and think nothing of the things that worries me. Of course I want to do this with my family and friends. I wish I'm earning thousands of peso a day so that I have loads of money to spend. With earning a lot means I can spend a lot as well. I'm no money freak or something, all I wanna do is go somewhere relaxing and I want to pay for everything so that my friends and family will go with me without any hesitations because I'm the one paying. (sighing!)

My friends back then in college days was inviting me to go to a beach three hours away from the city by bus and boat. I said no I can't and one of my alibi was... my baby is sick and so I can't go with you. Truly... she was sick but is good already, one major reason though why I can't go was/is... we are short of budget and that really is sad.

Short Trip: Health Center

Hubby and my little girl has made a short trip to the health center for her vaccine. My daughter is only three months and has receives 4 or 5 vaccines already, the health center people though told hubby that this would her last vaccine for now, she just need to go back for another after 9mos.

My mom in-law went with them and found a lot of friends at the health center which she did not expect. They told me that my little girl cried so loud that she gets all the attention of everyone in there including the doctor in-charge. Good thing though because... the doctor liked my daughter, so instead of being irritated because of her loud cry... the doctor even play with her or try to hush her with her smile and sweet talking.

Well... another highlight of my baby's trip is... she liked riding in the tricycle and sidecar. Another one is... my baby is quite famous. I say this because mom says that when they get in the sidecar... some guy told the driver to take them in such street (which is the street where we live), but mom says that how did you know that we are going there and in fact I live in a different street, then the guy says.. "well.. you are, but the baby lives in my street!". As a mom... this made me smile big :d

A crazy move (A trip to the mall with a three months old)

It's been a while that I planned on going to the mall to buy my baby some clothes since all that she has won't fit her anymore. When I told hubby my idea he agreed as long as someone will take care of our baby while we're away. So.. I kept on waiting for in-laws to be available for my baby but unfortunately... everyone is busy.

I can't really help it any more, my heart and mind are set on going to the mall to buy the stuff. So I told hubby if it is possible to bring our little one and hubby said of course as long as she won't get afraid riding in the motorbike. My baby did nothing going to the mall, she was very accommodating and so we thought everything will be alright.

On our way home though something happens... and I have no idea what it is co'z all I know she doesn't want to ride on the  motorbike anymore. She cried like crazy and drew peoples attention. Goodness, I got scared and decided to walk with her, and while we're walking a man came and asked us what happened and when we explained things with him he told us to stay at the baranggay hall for awhile to calm the baby.

we stop in the middle of our ride to hush her with milk to no avail :(

Travel Mode

A few days back I was hit by a travel mode feeling and I really can't get out of it, it's like a thirsty feeling that can never be quench until you drink. In feeling so.. I told my friend that whenever she found a zero or cheap flight going somewhere nice whether it could be domestic or International... it doesn't matter to me as long as I can go somewhere. It feels like ages now from the last time I've traveled and I really really want to go. I hope that before the year ends something will come.

1 Peter 3


1Pe 3:1  Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives,
1Pe 3:2  when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.
1Pe 3:3  Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.
1Pe 3:4  Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.
1Pe 3:5  For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own husbands,
1Pe 3:6  like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.
1Pe 3:7  Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
1Pe 3:8  Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.
1Pe 3:9  Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
1Pe 3:10  For, "Whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech.
1Pe 3:11  He must turn from evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it.
1Pe 3:12  For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."
1Pe 3:13  Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good?
1Pe 3:14  But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened."
1Pe 3:15  But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
1Pe 3:16  keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.
1Pe 3:17  It is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.
1Pe 3:18  For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit,
1Pe 3:19  through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison
1Pe 3:20  who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water,
1Pe 3:21  and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also--not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
1Pe 3:22  who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand--with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.

River Taxi stop

Last December 2010, hubby and hosted a team from Sacramento California. 
Part of the teams recreation was a trip to Taal Volcano in Tagaytay, but unfortunately
the place was closed for tourist due to some volcanic issue.  We instead brought them  to 
Ilog Pasig for a boat taxi ride.

It was fun and was my first time as well. And during to one of our stop, one of our friend
took of picture of us.

don't know why I am laughing though :)

Christ's Disciple (by: Toph P.)


A Disciple doesn’t look back
He doesn’t make excuses
He made up his mind and knows were he is going
He is heading to Jerusalem; to embrace the cross were his master was crucified

He was called not to be served but to serve
He will often say, Lord here am I!
For He must deny himself and take up his cross daily
And often he hears His master saying “Come follow me!”

He was instructed not to love the world or anything in this world but to love His enemies
His food was the bread of life and His only thirst was for the living water
He is very careful to the yeast of the Pharisees
For he is not after to the purity of the law but to the purity of the heart

He seeks only the Kingdom of God and His righteousness
His principle in life was the Sermon on the Mount
For he is blessed to share the afflictions of his Master
His Glory was in shame because of his obedience in following the Good Shepherd

His only Mission was to preach the Kingdom of Heaven
For in them he found contentment and true meaning of his existence
Nothing in this world can stop him in serving his King
Like a sharp arrow in the hands of his mighty King!

The only reason why he live is for Christ, and for him to die is gain
Even death no longer has mastery over him for he already found life through Him
A slave whose only wish is that Christ may increase and that he may continually decrease
His faith was built by the grace that is in the eyes of the one who died for Him.

Nangangarap nalang muna...

...oo, sa panahon ngayon ay nangangarap nalang muna kami ng asawa ko, pinapangarap muna namin ang mga lugar na gusto naming puntahan dahil sa aming pinakamamahal na si Ziah. Di naman kasi pwedeng ibiyahe siya ng malayuan sapagkat infants pa siya. Hindi kami pwedeng basta gumastos nalang dahil kailangan namin maghigpit sa pag gastos lalo na ngayon na maraming kailangan si baby.

Hihintayin nalang muna namin na makaluwag-luwag ng konti at lumaki-laki sa baby para di mahirap sa biyahe.

We definitely not traveling this time because our little girl is only almost two months old only. But we are hoping that when she gets older we will be able to travel again.
I am actually wanting to go to this place in Cam. Sur. where you can do a lot of outside activities like zipline and a lot of other things that I don't know what its called.
I know someday.. we will be going somewhere as a family and that would be awesome.

Back Then (Taal Volcano)

Hubby and I got this beautiful opportunity to visit this place twice at the same year three years back.
The place looks like this very calm and peaceful unlike today that its ready to erupt any time.
People.. specially tourist are not allowed to see this place anymore because its not as safe as before.
I was just glad I capture some breathtaking view of this place.

On our way to the office

We left home early this morning for the office and good thing it did not rain because I did not bring any raincoat or something. I'll be soaking wet if it did.

I took pictures a long the way because I would like to share how life is in the morning riding in a motorbike.

Something to think about today

Dealing with doubts

Inspired by: Life on purpose for men, by J.M. Farro
  
When the (evil) spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. Jesus asked the boy’s father, “ How long he has been  like this?” “From childhood “, he answered. “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.”
“If you can?’” Jesus said. “Everything is possible to those who believes.”
Immediately the boys father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
---Mark 9:20-24---

Challenge:
What have we been listening to lately? Are we listening to conversation of unbelief, worldly television, or negative music? Make sure that we also listen to the Word of God as much as possible. We should fill our empty time with His Word rather than the world’s choices. Let’s do this to increase our faith.

Prayer:
Lord, I want so much to have a perfect faith, but sometimes or rather most of the time I must confess that I struggle with doubt. During such times I want to ask You to help me overcome my unbelief. Increase my faith daily, and teach me to do my part so that I can cooperate with You for the perfecting of my faith. Thank you for giving me faith I need to receive all that You have for me!

Thailand-Cambodia Border

This picture was taken October last year when we have this trip with our young people to Siem Reap Cambodia to do some medical missions and hygiene clinic with people of some remote villages.   It was a very challenging thing to do because we do want to talk to them but we just can't understand their language. Good thing our contact group provide us some local who would translate whatever conversation we have with the people (Cambodian language were called Khmer).

It was indeed a good successful trip. Hope we could visit Siem Reap again in the future with friends.

Not a lot traveling this time :(

I don't travel a lot this time, in fact I missed riding our motorbike with hubby. Aside form missing a lot of things by traveling, I also missed that traffic officer guy who took my heart away and became one of my inspiration why I made this blog. He is a hardworking nice traffic officer who deserves and award and increase in salary. I say such because I saw him working hard amidst a traffic scorching hot day. Even I saw him just from a distance I still knew that he was sweating pail-full unlike to some of his co-traffic officers who are standing at a shady place trying to chill out, but this man never leaves his post (which was in the middle of the crossroad highway).

I was wondering what would his children say or feel when they would see their dad working hard for their sake. If I'm one of the kids I probably boast my father and would study hard or work hard to earn good so that I could help my dad or if I'm really doing real good salary, I'll ask him to stop that work and find something not that dying-hot job.

Traveling with Hubby again

It's three days in a row that I am traveling with hubby again. It's good to be off the road again but one thing that I'm not loving on this road tripping is the sun's scorching heat.  It was very hot today, in fact I felt like passing out good thing I had my helmet on and a jacket as well.

I am expecting that this week is gonna be a hectic week for us, and gonna be more road trip.

At Home Today

I'm forced to stay here at home again today for reasons that I just can't disclose in here. Two days ago though we we're at the office to attends meetings and to do some urgent works and even stay for the night there. We don't have a car reasons why hubby needs to borrow our office van to take me to the office and home (this is one reason why I needed to stay here at our house most often and stay overnight at the office if I need to do some urgent work.)

He misses me

We used to travel every morning together.
But now.. he needs to travel alone.
We do this... in hoping that,
I'll get pregnant soon.

May  the Lord hear our cries
And grant our requests.
