To New Beginnings

It’s been quite a while since my last post and I didn’t know this page had actual visitors despite the hiatus of sort, so that was a surprising surprise.  A lot have changed with Word Press and I find it very interesting and useful, hope I can keep up the blogging mode.

Looking ahead, I’ll probably first share some of my recent travel which I haven’t “blogged” here, such as the Hong Kong and New Zealand trip, the vacation escapades to my home country Philippines and the daily experiences I have encountered while working here in Saudi Arabia.

posting Ely’s poem, a reply on sa isip lang.

remember the days we’re together?
isn’t it bittersweet and no reservations..
who thought that will be forever?
letting our heart flows in different directions..

grudges have no room anyway,
who do you think someone had a regret?
in some point we have those decisions what would I say..
never in my deepest soul, should I forget?

life is a choice of your own will..
how about the Almighty hands to you?
His plans are perfect , so better stand still..
did I said I follow mine or to those are few..

this again a piece made to you to think..
can somehow tell the contents of my within?
you can read twice and have a single blink..
are you a good one to be that keen?

—-cheers on xpressing the other side of yOu :)

posting Ely’s comment on my poem …sa isip lang…

i thought there is someone better than you
nobody knows what we’ve been through
i have found something that never can replace
the space you fill in my heart, no one can erase….

times flies and thousand miles we’re apart
who says you haven’t captured my deepest heart?
i miss you the most on this journey they called life..
when will be the time again that i can hug you tight??

prayers and love is what i always have for you..
you can smile, but u never know this is so very true..
there maybe ups and down on us before..
i jsut want you to know i always care for you more and more..

if you are reading this, and you feel i have touch your heart ..
somehow this is for you , or maybe just a piece created..
for more than once read it again, and tell me why..

maybe this piece have posted … just for you to say HI :)

…the hero within us…

“Our planet is filled with heroes, young and old, rich and poor, man, woman of different colors, shapes and sizes. We are one great tapestry. “Each person has a hidden hero within, you just have to look inside you and search it in your heart, and be the hero to the next one in need.

“So to each and every person inside …this theater and for those who are watching at home, the hero in you is waiting to be unleashed. Serve, serve well, serve others above yourself and be happy to serve. As I always tell to my co-volunteers … you are the change that you dream, as I am the change that I dream, and collectively we are the change that this world needs to be.” Efren Penaflorida

We are created unique; every one of us has the ability to transform whatever we want to everything we wanted to be. We have the power to think and knowledge to create something substantial and tangible that would uplift the betterment of our surrounding. If all of us have just to look inside our hearts and radiates that to everyone, this world would be a better place to live in. Everyone would have an equal share to what is available to us.

Everything boils into one word “LOVE”. If we have love for mankind and humanity, we have to act now; it is not yet too late for us to catch up on the things we have lost. I know it is not easy achieving our goals, there will be ups and down, all we have to do is to believe and have faith that we can achieve it.  Let us unleash the hero within us, share the love within us and be an example that others may follow.

A toast to “Kuya EF”, may you continue to be a good example of  doing extraordinary things and may GOD bless you always!

posting Ann Agustin reply on my poem sa isip lang

winner ka badonng… sa pag-gawa ng tula…
sa pagbasa nito ako ay namangha…
mga adventures and get-away iyong nilathala…
sa pag babalik tanaw ako ay tumula…

di matatawaran ating mga pinagdaanan…
mga simpleng mithi, malayo ang napadparan
sa bawat usap at kamustahan, loob ay gumagaan
kalungkutan ay napapawi pag mensahe at chats na ang pinag-tutuunan…

salamat sa lahat ng inyong pananatili…
sa barkadahang ito tayo ay nakatali…
malayo man sa pisikal, puso’t isip ay wagi
basta nandyan ang kaibigang winner ka kung pinili….

…sa isip lang…

Ito’y pagpupugay sa mga kaibigang tunay
Na sa puso’t isip ay kailan ma’y  di nawalay
Saan man mapadpad pagkakaibiga’y taglay
Sama-samang inaabot mga hangaring binuhay
Ito and simula ng pagkakaibigang makulay

Naalala mo pa ba mga nakaraang napakasaya
Kasama na rin mga lungkot na minsan dala’y luha
Mga tampuhan na kung iisipi’y sa ngayo’y nakakatawa
May tatalo pa ba sa ating mga ganitong eksena
Na sa pagdaan ng taon ay kaygandang balikan tuwina

Sa bahay nila Inay at Agus, sa Bulacan ay napadalas
Handa nila Nanay at Mama ay ubos at masarap na likas
Swimming nagkayayaan kaya daan sa Puerto Galera’y binagtas
Papunta sa Corregidor sa barko sama ng loob naibulalas
Na di mawari kung anong mangyayari sa pagdating ng bukas

Sa awa ng Diyos ating napagtagumpayan
Mga pagsubok sa atin ay kanyang pinapasan
Upang maging matatag para sa ano pa man
At sa tulong niyo kaibigan aking nalagpasan
Mga salitang magaganda sa aking loob ay nakagaan

Tayo’y nangarap, plano ay nabuo “Laudry shop” naitayo
Salamat kina Flora, Nelson, at Fria na naging abalang puno
Mga masasayang trip sa Subic palaging takbo
Kotse ni Inay at Agus dyan ay panalo
Masarap na tulog sa apartment nila Flora at Nelson ay isa pang panalo!

Di rin pahuhuli ang ating Tagaytay adventure
Siksikan sa kotse ni Agus ating nasurvive
Sarap ng kape at lamig sa Starbucks ay na endure
Sa maliit na kuwarto’y tabi-tabi’t walang demure
At sa Bag of Beans almusal ay mahusay!

San man mapadpad komunikasyo’y nandyan
YM chat siyang naging huntahan
Yahoo Mail naging sulatan
Yan ang patunay na kahit san man
Sa pagkakaibigang di mapapantayan

Salamat mga kaibigan ko
Kayo’y dumating sa buhay ko
Di ko man sinasabi mahal ko kayo
Sa aking mga panalangin kasama ko kayo
Di man tayo nagkikita nasa puso ko kayo!

Basta isipin mo lang….mangyayari!



…the Palace…

IMG_1705I am still in awe with what I saw a while ago, I was able to go inside a Prince Palace (Saudi). Actually my first and I truly savour the moment because I don’t think it will happen to me again. I have been into a palace but mostly just outside the perimeter. I am very glad the work was given to me, to appreciate and see the beauty, the architecture, the grandeur, the technology and amenities of the palace. I was lucky enough to go each and every corner and room  while doing my work (test calls). Sadly, I wasn’t allowed to take pictures but I was able to get some with my cam hidden inside my pocket. The huge underground underneath the palace where the garage (basement 1) can be found, a collection of cars were parked beautifully, from Lincoln, Bmw, Mercedes, Aston Martin, Porsche, Ferrari , you name it theIMG_1707y have it. On the opposite side of the garage an olympic size swimming pool was designed perfectly (imagine a pool underground) and across was the lounge area, massage, spa, sauna rooms and the bar. Picture this, a big hall was turned into a kiddie play room with a kiddie pool, rides, game room, and the “foodie” room which caught my attention because of the tempting and expensive  goodies inside. “The kitchen, my goodness napanganga talaga ako as in ngangang-nganga! Imagine the refrigerator, ang haba at ang laki, one block ata sa dingding. If I’m not mistaken 10 doors, you can never find such this one on the market kundi pasadya para dito lang. Then the industrial gas range, the utensils, the machines my goodness gracious the room itself ay wish kong magkaron.”

Experiencing and seeing the entire place gives me a hope and dream of having my own “PALACE”. But for now, work hard huhuhuh!!!
