worse than chedeng

On this day of your life, Aileen, we believe God wants you to know ... that there is a right time for each of the things you do.

If you try to live counter to your personal rhythms, you will expend more time and energy to get things done. Body and soul suffer when you force yourself to wrestle against your own rhythms. Listen to your rhythms and follow them.
Right now, body and soul is suffering worse than chedeng.  Exit strategy comes to mind. 

Lord, into your hands I commend my spirit, be it done according to your will.

My Affair with Sunsets

I am amazed with sunsets.  It brings out a nostalgic, haunting, mystical feeling in me.  Since 2006, I have been trying to capture its beauty when I travel around the country.  From so-so shots inside a bus to simply amazing photos while the sun goes down...

Let me introduce you to my affair...

It all started in Sagada going to Baguio, seeing golden Benguet, I am motivated to write a poem about its grandeur, sadly I did not.  But I was able to capture its beauty albeit inside a moving mini-bus.  I promise, I'll be back to do you justice.

My so-called Day-Off

This is my so-called day off.

I was really hoping for a day off yesterday and looking forward to korean food and foot spa, and some clothes shopping at Marien, all in our busy street of Don Antonio/Holy Spirit Drive. But of course, luck would have it that my daughter will insist on coming with me to the spa, and my other daughter left behind crying for at least an hour before sleeping. And of course, Manny Pacquio and Bagyong Bebeng decided to have their own say on the matter.

This is I think the predicament of mothers. We're wishing for a day off but never really getting it, because in real life mothers can't zone out all their concerns. In reality, maybe our day off is just a few hours really before we go back to mother mode.

This is our trip to Chic Nails for spa bonding, while Bagyong Bebeng showered the metro with her love.
