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

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

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

The Journey of Life


It’s a usual hard day’s night. After chatting with my wife and son, I randomly watch videos in YouTube to pass time. After jumping from one channel to another, my attention is drawn on ‘sugod-bahay’ channel. It’s a segment in noontime show in the Philippines “eat bulaga”. There are three videos that I watched consecutively … Continue reading

Coping Up with Daily Demands


I’m an organiser, or perhaps the pressure in our workplace forced me to pick myself up and put my gear in the game. Whichever, I’m arriving in the same state of mind – not being satisfied upon hitting the due dates but feeling paranoid always. As if a monster from the manga/movie Death Note (japanese … Continue reading

Quest for meaning of life


In my life, choosing a path is the hardest part. Then I live with my choice, whatever the consequence(s) may be.  It just occurred to me the thought that reflected by the Preacher (King Solomon) – that “life is meaningless.” I can’t agree more.  I was raised to be educated and find stable job, doubted … Continue reading

An Attempt to Balance the “God Will Provide / Living By Faith” Concept


Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. – Matthew 10:16 For we live by faith, not by sight. – 2 Cor. 5:7 As christians, we are governed by scriptures. Sure, we pick up those that are easy to get along. However, … Continue reading

Why is it so tough to move forward?


Lately I’m pondering about this question. Then my mind sails afloat the sea of thoughts. I then find myself trolling around scenarios of “what if?” “why not?” exchange – like a tennis ball.  Tradeoff is the main factor. If I move forward, I will leave point “A” and embrace point “B.” There’s no turning back, … Continue reading

God Heard Us The First Time


โ€‹*[[Dan 10:12]] ISV* โ€œโ€˜Donโ€™t be afraid, Daniel,โ€™ he told me, โ€˜because from the first day that you committed yourself to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard.
