Life’s Tips

22 May

I just want to share this with y’all πŸ™‚

Advice from Somewhere

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

When you say, “I love you,” mean it.

When you say, “I’m sorry,” look the person in the eye.

Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

Believe in love at first sight.

Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.

In disagreements, fight fairly. Please No name calling.

Don’t judge people by their relatives.

Talk slowly but think quickly.

When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?”

Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Say “bless you” when you hear someone sneezes.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

Remember the three R’s:
Respect for self;
Respect for others;
Responsibility for all your actions.

Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Spend some time alone.

This came around anonamously, identified as from a “Chinese Tantra Totem” – One definition of a tantra being a statement of principle or religious practice and collections of such principles and practices. It’s origins are probably from south Asia such as India and may have followed Hinduism and Buddhism and other related belief and practice systems into East Asia including China.
I haven’t verified any origins for these sayings. I don’t think most of them are unique to China or Asia. Certainly some have existed in western culture for a long time. (They are even older than me) Some are probably ancient. Some, such as the ‘smile when answering the phone’ are at least modern variations if not actually recent. But they sound good. If you live this way life will seem happy.


My Lola’s 75th Birthday! :)

27 Mar

Yesterday was the 75th Birthday of our ever dearest Lola. It was a fun-filled event shared with all my loved ones- my family, relatives, and Jon πŸ™‚

The celebration was held on Scout Gandia street where we rented this very cozy-by-the-pool haven. I hosted the event, and I found it challenging, compared to some events I have hosted before- the thing was, I couldn’t think of games for this kind of party (75th bday), and the kids were busy swimming and going back and forth to the Chocolate Fountain set-up for them. So it was really a challenge to get everyone’s attention. Thanks to the videoke though, it kept everyone entertained πŸ™‚

The food– very lip-smacking! When I looked at the visitors taking turns to get some munch-ons, I knew that the food was great! We had rice, pansit, baked mack, roast beef, pink salmon, tempura, lechon, salad, veggies, potato balls, chicken cordon bleu, cupcakes and caramel cakes for dessert– when I got my plate on the table, I whispered and said “dami ko ata nakuha..” haha! πŸ™‚ The food was really delicious and appetizing. Yes, it was a bitΒ costlyΒ but everyone really enjoyed and forgot their diet plans. Take note, I even whispered to Jon β€œngayon na lang cheat day ko, instead bukas, pagpapalitin ko” J Wise enough, right? J Drinks were everywhere too- waiters serving soft drinks, canned beers, Tanduay Ice, and Brandy. The drinks undeniably added some twists… J

It felt good to see Jon and my relatives altogether for the second time that evening. I can really say that my family and relatives like Jon. J Looking forward for more bonding moments to come! J

To my dearest nanay, I love you Nay! Wishing you more healthy and happy years to come… J Happy Birthday! J

burger steak

18 Oct

>Weekends have always been my favorite part of EVERY week, I’m sure we all love weekends! ^^.

Last weekend gave me a different story. I thought it would be the saddest weekend ever! I was supposed to leave for Batangas with Jon and his team but because of my health condition, a long travel wouldn’t be a smart idea. I had activities listed to keep myself busy- movie marathon, quality time with friends, and net-surfing. These activities kept me busy, but I still thought that this weekend was the worse or should I say the WORST ever. 

The weekend was about to end, and Jon was finally home (thank You Lord for keeping him and our friends safe). I would like to give Jon enough rest so he could make up for the sleepless night when he was in Batangas, and the travel itself was tiring for sure. So I asked him to munch on something first and to rest early, and he said, he would. He asked me to call him up, so I did. He said that he would have to meet his Ate’s friend at Katipunan to get something, and that he would just hit Jollibee’s Drive-thru counter for food. He wanted me to just stay on the line with him. So we shared our weekend’s stories with each other, and all that. He then asked me “kung kakain ka ngayon sa Jollibee, ano ang oorderin mo? kasi yun nalang oorderin ko at eat ko…” so I answered “Burger Steak”- my all time favorite! :)) So he had finally placed an order, and then ate as we talked. He then mentioned that his car was parked somewhere in Katipunan. I missed him sooo much so we didn’t have any dull minutes on the phone, and shared buckets of stories together. He raised many questions like “nasa kwarto ka ba ngayon?” so I answered “NO” because I was at our garage..hehehe! He again asked “bakit nandiyan ka?” and I responded “baka magising si Sam sa loob e…” and many questions were asked by my sweet boyfriend! πŸ™‚ New topic filled the line- it was about my family’s plan on purchasing a new car. So I asked him “hun, magkano nga ba ulit yung Innova? and then he replied “anong Innova, yung katulad ng nasa likod mo hun??” I looked back and to my surprise, HE WAS THERE….  πŸ™‚ I shouted and said “o ano ginagawa mo dito?” I was soooo happy to see him. I put the phone down and went near his car. He smiled and gave his pasalubong- it was favorite my Burger Steak… :)) Weeeee! πŸ™‚

I really thought that it was my saddest weekend ever. 

Another memorable weekend added to my bucket of wonderful memories! πŸ™‚

Hun, thanks for everything!  You’ve ended my weekend and at the same time, started this new week with your sweetest way! Thank you Mr. Josef! ^^. I love you very much! 

3 Quarters

14 Oct


With all honesty, I don’t know if I should even start this blog but I need to share this.

This year hasn’t ended yet, but as early as now, I am very thankful to God for everything that happened. This year’s first quarter lingered on my health issues. This was also the time when my relationship with God grew stronger, He found ways to draw me closer to Him. Before this quarter ended, I met new and wonderful people, including Jon who’s now part of my life’s journey. The second quarter started with happy memories too, happy memories with my Dad. God gave me and my sisters two wonderful weeks to be with our Dad again (after 5 long years). This was also the part of the year that I decided to open my heart to someone, to Jon. Our love story did not start quite right, challenges were part of our love’s story Chapter 1. (To those who I may have hurt in any how, I am sincerely sorry. I don’t know why I’m saying this, but again I feel that there’s a need to say this. I don’t need an excuse or whatnot, but sincerely, I am sorry if I’ve caused pains to anyone, I am sorry.. I really am…). The last quarter started with great memories and challenges too…(will write more about it before this year ends…promise…::) As these lingered, a deep sigh filled my tummy all through out my mouth and I couldn’t help but say “Salamat Lord…sobra!”.

Last night, as I helped myself to sleep, I realized many things… how much I’ve changed and how my life transitioned from where I was three years ago to where I am right now. I had questions in mind like: what would have happened if I didn’t choose to let go and move forward? what would happened if I chose to stay, and what would have happened if God’s plan on December 11, 2007 did not happen? My answer to this question was simple- my life would have been so miserable….and I thank God for not letting it happen. God helped me out, God pulled my hand and carried me away from that grave. My eyes were teary because of joy. I prayed and thanked Him for everything. After my emotional prayer… I smiled and said to myself don’t regret the risks I took 3 years ago… because that was the start of my happiness. Now, I can say, that “Jam started fixing her life three years ago, and she’s very happy and grateful now…” ^^.  I held my phone and sent a loooong text message to Jon. I wanted to let him know how grateful I am for having him around.

Now, I can truly say that everything happens for a reason. Everything that happens to us is written on the stars, that’s part of our fate. We don’t know what His plans for us, but I am sure that the sorrows He let/s us feel in our past and the future pains ARE PART of His plans. That doesn’t mean that He wants to hurt us (definitely not), He let/s us feel sorrows because He wants to teach us LESSONS, lessons that are painful enough to walk us through and guide us to where our lives should be. No matter how narrow and vague that road is, I’m sure that we always have Him in that journey. At times when we feel like giving up, He even offers His arms and strength and carry us.

We all have our own life’s journey, yours is different from mine, but I’m sure that we both experience HAPPINESS AND SORROWS, it’s just a matter of handling both worlds. ^^.  God wants the best for us, but we have to work for it.

To those who are in the journey of moving forward, just walk ahead, and don’t look back. God has better plans for you. Keep the faith and play your cards right. Ask for signs, He gives signs in various forms. πŸ™‚

I wish everyone a happy life! Smile… πŸ™‚

Jam- The Official Bum and I.T of the Day

12 Oct

>I haven’t been working for 22 days now, and everyday gets boring. I miss working, I miss my colleagues, and I miss those “4:30 mornings” with Jon.

For the past few weeks, I was busy dealing with my doctors at St. Lukes and Capitol Med, I was pre-occupied with all those hospital procedures. The brighter side was- my past weekends were spent with my family and Jon and these weekends were worry-free… meaning… I didn’t have to think about MONDAYS for a few weeks… hehe! :)) BUT BUT BUT some of my previous Tuesdays through Fridays were boring especially when I had to stay at home and just rest my ass all the time… talking about not being productive made these days moooore boring–btw, resting at home was at my best bet than to see my doctors…hehe!

Today, I was supposed to meet my doctors for my acupuncture and for another raised-leg-test, but because of some errands in my and in their end, I had to stay home and bummed all day. I wanted to make this day productive, so I looked for things to do. So I grabbed my laptop, and performed its system restoration… and it consumed half of my day (weew and yey!).

In short, today I was my family’s official bum and I.T.. why not!? πŸ™‚

I have to sleep now, tomorrow is hospital day for me… no more errands please! :))

Pahabol: some days really get boring, but EVERYDAY is ALWAYS HAPPY AND MEANINGFUL because of Mr. Jonard B. Josef. He always completes my day! πŸ™‚

To my colleagues: I’ll see you guys soooon! :))

Good night! >(”,)<

11 Oct

>A month ago, I opened my Twitter to all its viewers, but because of this certain person who never gets tired getting updates about me… I’ve decided to keep my tweets private again.

To you, Mr. Annoying, I know you also hop onto my blog EVERYDAY, so this is for you. I am very happy with everything and with the person I have right now, so please find your own happiness too!

I don’t have a way to block  you from here. You don’t deserve a response from me BUT this time, I want you to READ this carefully! YOU’RE STARTING TO ANNOY ME… and I am very serious! This is the end. No more worries about you. I don’t want to waste my time and ruin my day because of you. 

disclosure: to my all my blog readers: please excuse me for this post. so negative, but this is the first and last. thank you!
