A simple message for You :)

I was supposed to finish a task tonight but I got tempted in blogging (as far as I can remember, I told myself that THIS won’t be a personal blog. Whatever me HAHA). Anyway. I would like to say a simple message, a message of gratitude to all my loved ones and how grateful I am having Him by my side 🙂

Dear God, Thank You for all the trials You’ve given me because I learned how to be strong. For all those disappointments because I realize that You indeed have wonderful plans for me. I am really glad that I trusted You because if I didn’t, I’d never be THIS happy.

Thank You for introducing me to superb friends. Friends who have helped me lead back to You and continue to strengthen my faith in You. Friends who appreciate my strengths. Friends who uplift me in times of weakness.

Thank You for such a great family (by blood) you’ve given me. Family who supports me in every step of the way. Family who helps me fortify my personality. Family who is always at my side.

Thank You for all my loved ones who love for who I am, my good and bad side.

And thank You for guiding my way to my workplace, my new family. I believe that I’ll be able to find more friends and great people there and treat them as a new family. I believe that I will grow there and be a person that You want me to be.

I am now on my 21st year of my life. True that I still long for some things (not material) but look where it’s bringing me – a curious me who’s willing to take more experience and challenges. True that I had regrets and a lot of problems but look where it led me – a better me 🙂

I really want to Thank You, Lord, for everything. Just listen to my heart in case I’ve missed something I forgot to tell You. I love You 🙂

Love, Your Child 🙂

New Books to Read

Hooray! Pampered my self with these 🙂

These three (To Kill a Mockingbird, Wuthering Heights, and It’s Not that Complicated) serve as my birthday gift for my self 🙂 I really wanted the The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom but it was out of my budget. So I opted to buy cheaper books (which I’ve always wanted) instead. There you go, three books for 500php 🙂 I would just save money for the The Time Keeper and hopefully purchase one on Christmas 😀

Meanwhile, Love in the Time of Cholera is  my gift to a friend 🙂 I told her that I won’t be having the annual birthday treat to all of them so I said that I’ll just give her an “incentive” after always being there for me ever since 🙂 Choosing a gift for her is very easy because she’s indeed a bookworm, but selecting a specific book was a bit hard. HAHA To make things short, I ended up buying this. I haven’t read it myself (even if I have a copy) so I’ll just let her have her own review about it 🙂


HBD Ehm2 :D

“You’ll rarely see me walking along the corridors of St. Raymund’s Building without…”

I could still remember when I tried the 30-day challenge and the topic on the sixth day was ‘your bestfriend’. Guess what, one of them is celebrating her special day today! 😀

Meet the birthday girl lady, Emkei 🙂

Emkei, or Ehm2, was my college blockmate who became my backmate for one year (credits to the alphabetically arranged seats). I never thought that I would be this close to her because she looks too high-profiled HAHA Seriously. I have this idea (before) that if someone is from an all-girl school (which she was), they have the tendency to be snobbish (forgive me for stereotyping when I was younger). But I WAS WRONG. She was even the first one who talked to me soon after the class (the subject that took its time for the the college-life-changing seating arrangement) has ended.

Then the rest was history.

Four years in college was full of various memories: foodtrip, camwhoring, reviewing, unending stories, non-stop chatting, spazzing, and of course, boy-hunting HAHA. Did you know that we really don’t talk about personal things in our own lives unlike other best friends? Maybe a bit but not to the point we’ll end up in serious discussion. We’d just give an overview then immediately change the topic so we can avoid emotional breakdown (ROFL).

Anyway, like I said before, she is my spiritual mentor. I was lost (spiritually) for years but hey, I am back on track, thanks to this girl lady. I really admire her faith in God (just like Mother Mary’s). She’s the one who keeps on telling me to believe in the power of prayers whenever I feel defenseless with problems. Furthermore, she never fails to encourage me everytime I doubt my self.

Others see me as someone who has a “pusong mamon”. Believe me, Ehm2 is more empathetic than me. She has a compassionate heart towards others especially the unfortunate. Her first name ‘Mary’ really suits her.

Happy birthday to you dearest Ehm2! You’re now going to start the journey towards your dreams and I’m really happy for you! You know that right? (Perhaps not? Haha). No matter what happens, I’m always here for you. I’m just a pm away when you need someone to listen to your “crazy stories” (you said it yourself) HAHA And thank you for everything especially listening to reading my life chronicles 😀 Surely someday, prince charming will come into our lives. I’m really excited to know who your Mr.-Knight-in-Shining-Armor will be, his nationality to be specific HAHAHA Let’s just focus on our careers for now 😀 Good luck and I love you! God Bless! :* >:D<

Peach Mango Float

It was my mom’s birthday a few days ago and it has been my “tradition” to give her something edible on that occasion. Since I don’t have money to buy sweets because I don’t have an allowance, my dad funded the ingredients for me to make refrigerated cake. HOORAY! So, here’s how to do it.


3 All Purpose Cream

1 can Condensed Milk

1 can Peach

Graham Crackers



1. Mix Condensed Milk and All Purpose Cream. Optional: You may put it inside the fridge for a few hours for thicker mixture. I have chilled mine for 2 hours.

2. Slice mangoes and peach in desired size. I scraped the mangoes using a fork (spoon can also be used) so it looked like this:

*But I diced some of the mangoes to be placed on top.

3. Fill the base of the dish with Graham Crackers

4. Pour the mixture

5. Add the mangoes (if scraped, blend it a bit on the upper surface of the cream mixture; include the juice) and peach. Optional: You may include the syrup in the can of Peach.

6. Repeat steps 3 to 5

7. If there are excess crackers, crush it and place it on top of the last layer

8. Design the top of your refrigerated cake with the remaining fruits.

9. Put it in the fridge until crackers are already soft and ready to eat

Take note: Larger slice of peach is tastier than smaller ones.

Peach Mango Float on a special occasion! 🙂
