Lenten Season 2009

I received a very meaningful Lenten message today (thanks to Topee). I would like to share it with all of you. Here it goes:

The season of LENT reminds us that the life we have and the material possessions we hold are simply LENT to us. We are but pilgrims here on earth who will pass by only once. We bring nothing when we die. But we can leave behind the love we’ve shared, the hope we have given and the goodness we have done.


You might also like these presentations (perfect for reflecting on your personal journey in Life) *winks!

Pathways to Peace and Interview with God.

A blessed and meaningful Holy Week to you all.

Somebody, please HELP!!!

I just woke up. It’s only a quarter to 8am and already I am excited, confused, happy and sad all at once! (lol) I guess I’m just having an emotion overload, eh? Just my typical Monday blues – what d’ya think?

We had a power interruption yesterday – which really made sleeping an impossible thing. I usually sleep during the day and work nights – power went off at around 6am to 8am and went off again at around 1pm to 6pm! I slept for a couple of hours in the morning and woke up at around 1:30pm drenched in my own sweat! After that, I was awake all throughout the afternoon. I finally decided to change my rest day when I didn’t feel like I could go to work due to lack of sleep plus the fact that I am (again) suffering from these itchy, red rashes (darn allergies again) – I have it all over my face and back. I look hideous!

As soon as I went on the PC, I noticed Cacai’s greeting. It actually REALLY caught my eyes! She was congratulating me for having my blog’s PR2! I was soooo happy and excited! I thought “Finally! A PR for my blog!.” So I went to popuri, and other sites that lets you check your page rank – all of them returned a PR0 for my blog. And then I went from happy and ecstatic to sad and lost. And, now I’m confused. How can I tell and see my blog’s PR? Some say it’s on my side bar but I don’t have it. My blog is going to be a year old this June 20 and I’m still a PR0 with an Alexa ranking going lesser and lesser everyday. I wonder what I’m doing wrong?

Please help and shed some light to this poor, clueless blogger (sob…sob…sob…)

The Interview with God

It’s 1:00am now and I’m at work. I close my eyes and wish I was tucked in bed and enjoying my sleep – but alas, I find myself at work and bored as soon as I open my eyes. It will be a few more days to go before my rest day and I find myself procrastinating about a lot of things. So… I remembered this web site that was shared to me by one of my good friends (Thanks, Josie!).

This web site ALWAYS gets me in the right mood/path when I’m being too oblivious about the many things that I have been blessed with. Without much ado, let me share this one great presentation with you…

I hope it touches your heart like it did mine – never fails to calm my spirit and relax my soul.

Bohol Trip Pictures

I’m supposed to post this for my first Wordless Wednesday but – well… I’m late again and it’s a long way to go for next Wednesday! I just can’t wait to post this so I made a collage – I hope you will enjoy them.

Bohol is definitely the place to go when you’re looking for a place to unwind and relax – no wonder I’m going back there this coming May 30! Hopefully, this trip will be more happy with companions who won’t give you tantrums along the way. Oh my! I truly can’t wait for my next Bohol trip! This time, I’m bringing my brother along so he’ll have time off school and enjoy his summer vacation.

March Top EC Droppers

March has ended and once again it is time to reveal my March Top Droppers. I owe everyone an apology – this month has been a struggle for me. I was in the middle of a crisis, from adjusting to my new work shift – getting allergies – getting sick – and planning for my long overdue Bohol trip. To all who still dropped ECs even when I was away – thank you so much for your continued support! I will be back to being active and visible again now that my trip has ended and I’m back to my “normal” mode (lol).

Please check out their web sites – they not only write cool stuffs but they also share their everyday lives and experiences with you too.

Here are my Top Droppers for March:

Thank you so much! Hoping to see more of you in the coming months!

Bohol Trip 2009

Hi everyone!

I’m back and sporting a tan plus some sunburn from Bohol! The trip was a long awaited one but was not what I imagined or hoped it would be – well, the views and the sceneries were more than I expected. Something else just made my mood went from sky high to nadah during the trip. So… yes, I enjoyed Bohol. But please don’t ask me how the trip went.

As promised, here are the pics. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did.

Take care! Ciao!

Will start dropping ECs tomorrow, need to get some sleep and cool down my temper.
