Honoring My Tatay "PERLOT"

From Saudi with love - my Tatay took a vacation to take care of my Nanay...A dedicated husband and certified caregiver...Most of the times, I was just silently observing him - how he light-heartedly served his wife.

I recall one incident...While I was lying on the floor in our sala, I got awake and saw my Tatay covering my legs with blanket...I was so touched as if I'm still a teenager who's being protected by a father.

His hospitality is natural - he's always ready to offer anything to our visitors...His favorite is hot espresso served in small cups...He's a good listener and has wit and humor...My Nanay's circle of friends is very much amused of my Tatay - how he cracked jokes as "tagabola" in their weekly Bingo social.

There were countless little acts of kindness he has done for us - not only to his family but to others.

I want to thank and honor my Tatay for spending a meaningful vacation with us....I really appreciate all the sacrifices he's been doing for us, his demonstrative love for my Nanay, his simplicity, and faith in God....

"My ways are not YOUR WAYS...."

I hate this feeling...so many questions on my mind - why and what went wrong? I really don't know the answer....no matter how i keep myself busy, thoughts of the past keep disturbing my sanity...i'm tired of being emotional....Can't help myself but seek help from my one and only dependable friend whom I've ignored in some of the critical decisions in my life...oh, help me GOD!!!

It's true, sometimes "my ways are not Your WAYS." Be My Guide, and help me lead a good life because my ultimate goal is to be with YOU....Searching for my own happiness is never-ending and unattainable....only in YOU can I find true peace and happiness by forgetting myself and finding joy in serving others and expecting nothing in return...Teach me how to love even more, to forgive easily, and to trust once again...

Love is indeed an altar of sacrifice....And you can't find the value of each suffering without the grace of our Lord...

The Way to Live...



Nothing is permanent in life, except change.

Even our friendship will come to an end
for whatever reason we don't know.

We don't own people...

We have no right to question God
if He'll take away a person close to our heart.

We rather thank God
for the chance to know and love that person.

Life is too short...
never miss any opportunity to care
so you won't regret in the end.

There's nothing certain about life...

why be afraid to TRY and be HURT again -
if that's the only way to truly LIVE and be HAPPY.

Faces & Me...


If there's one person in my workplace who knows me very well - it's my sweet friend "Faces."

She's easy and fun to be with...Quick to react (most of the times) but also quick to forgive.

We have each other when we need a shoulder to cry on. We also have each other in our life's giggling moments.

Our life has been so colorful - take a look!!!

Thank you WENG.....


Just want to thank you for more than seven years of great friendship. I do appreciate your thoughfulness as a friend. I won't forget that you're the very first one who trusted me when I was transferred to Telemoney.


Your sharings about faith has given us a lot of inspiration - how you're healed by God and how you've found the man to spend the rest of your life with...You've been through a lot but with strong faith and love in your heart, you've overcome those trials..I'm so happy and proud of you!

I love you, friend....I'll be missing you - stay connected!
