Maligayang Kaarawan Tatay

Note: This post is roughly translated to English for non-tagalog viewers, if there’s any 🙂 Sa aming tatay na linggo-linggo nag uuwi ng chico, mansanas, at orange nung maliliit pa kami (nag work sa manila,lingguhan ang uwi,minsan pagitan isang linggo). To our father who’d weekly brought home box of chico, apple, and orange fruit while … Continue reading

Let the Journey Continue…

Series of events are happening lately, and these are happening so fast I can’t keep up. Sometimes the introvertness inside me is kicking in. Life is full of surprises, and I’m in for a treat! I’m not physically at my best lately, I’ll post the reason why by next two weeks. Today I’ve got my … Continue reading


Deprived, suppressed, exhausted, wasted Clinging for ounce of strength being mustered With this journey I’d lovingly invested Don’t pull me away, I’m just getting started. My heart is out of shape and I’m out of place Frustratingly beating myself, advancing my phase Strategize, prepare, attack, withdraw, back to board game… the battle is intensed I … Continue reading

Come, now is the time to worship

“A song of ascents. Of David. I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.” Psalm 122:1 (niv) I just had a conversation with my flatmate as we cook each other’s dinner. He arrived in Qatar under spouse’ sponsorship. His wife is working as a nurse if … Continue reading

Easter Hype

I had a rather overwhelming exposure with celebration of Easter this year, from social media to … er’ just social media. I can’t expect Qatar as a Islamic state to take part on Christian events such as Easter anyway. Ironically, Christmas is being observed in shopping malls, hotels, and airport. Seeing a 10ft christmas tree … Continue reading

Our company launched new HR software, and announced a contest to encourage us to fill in as much information as possible. There will be an iPad winner for each division. Currently we have 5 divisions worldwide. Guess what.. i bagged the iPad representing Middle East & India. Praise God! I even allowed to write a … Continue reading

The Fault in Our Stars

Author: John Green So, do I have to fly to Indiana to find out what happened to Hazel? For the kind attention of John Green [hashtag: van houten!] I actually ‘saw’ early part of the movie adaptation with the same title, but got bored and discontinued watching. I guess it’s not too late to repent … Continue reading

The Widow

Author: Fiona Barton I’m not a fan of investigative journalism. Thus, I’m not intrested to read such genre. However, curiosity overtook my preference and indulged into reading this book – I guess the teaser served its purpose. The death of the suspect Glen on the crime of child molestation/murder closed the case. It’s up to … Continue reading

The Girl On The Train

Paula Hawkins brought us on the world of complicated circumstances, so vivid that you feel like a close friend of yours is sharing her life story. I have a hint that the author is a commuter – must’d sparked the idea during her daily commute. The story of crime, failed marriage, battle of deppression, financial … Continue reading

Turning 36

Today i turned 36. It’s just a number, what made this day significant is that lot of people expressed their heart’s contents which are genuinely tear-jerky. Your greetings melt my heart. Being away from my family amplified the longingness. My wife asked me about my wish. Well, just like every family man would wish, I … Continue reading


When was the last time you posted something “honest” (as in free-flowing thoughts) in a social media and received massive backlash? Well, I just had that rather uncalled experience. I don’t want to delve into details. Once again, my assumption proves right about facebook: this is not an avenue to express my thoughts. I’m going … Continue reading

Caring Circle Lessons

I’m excited to be a part of this module having a vision of discipling believers for the glory of God. I praise God for His lovingkindness and grace, and kudos for our leaders who initiated this lesson. I pray that more souls will be reached, and draw them closer to God as we grow from … Continue reading
