Repost: Sto Nino de Bustos Church: Art by my Kuya Lito SJ


A repost from August 23 2010 entry… sharing again my Kuya’s Art…

From my Kuya Lito whom I am getting a lot of inspiration and advise and words of wisdom: Like..

“Its alright to start late… think of Vincent Van Gogh…” (about never give up on your dreams and taking action)

“Jump the cliff… you just build your wings on your way down”  (about taking courage on big decisions to make)

August 2010 post:

Just want to share the painting of my brother inspired by my photo of Sto Nino de Bustos Church at Bustos Bulacan:

Children Got Cancer, too…. Please don’t look away


Children Got Cancer too, please don’t look away. Today, I visited Phil General Hospital, with my humble petty gifts of pillows for the children of Pediatric ward for cancer patients. I have made a promise a couple of months ago that I will return with donations of pillows which the doctors specifically asked. Petty my gifts are, but I hope it will bring smiles to their face.

It was heart-breaking yet so inspiring how they are trying to be strong to fight the big C, though their body is so small and frail. It is also admirable how are their parents and lolas are so patiently and tenderly caring for them, keeping also the brave spirit.

Other petty stuff and problems became so irrelevant when you are at this place where one thing that is SO important is to hang on to the fragile thread of what we call Life.

Hope I can do more to cheer them. Or give what keep us all “hanging in there” …. Hope.

Week 3 – Charity Works at PGH


Pillows by Pillow Me (by me actually)


Glad to share that my pillows were featured in a blog “Baby and Breakfast.” Not expecting it really. The pillow project was done in a flash due to an ardent request of my cousin’s friend. In usual situation, we could have declined the project. But now, I’m glad we gave in to the request. The photoshots are just too cute. Particularly the babies. (My pillows are just props to them 😊😄, no big deal haha!)

Just too proud of my pillows (my new babies that keep me sane and creative for the past few months). They are actually what I’ve been doing all along (why im not blogging or doing most of my 101… #alibis)….

Anyways, you will see a lot of my pillows in the coming blog. So bear with it.

Be Hands On! (Wk 2 – Go Read Books and Be Inspired… Again)


Haven’t read books in a while, but I got this recently in National’s sale box. And glad I did. It made me inspired again, and brought back the volunteerism spirit that seemed lulling for a while. Just like any other projects and ideas and aspirations that I have unconsciously (or maybe deliberately) “abandoned” because of everyday grinding schedules and stress (alibi, alibi)…

 Been thinking when was the last time that I made meaningful acts of volunteerism or deliberate act of charity works? In past years, I usually took time to plan and schedule and save for those “events”. Maybe its not too late again. Well, nothing is too late if one starts NOW.

In my small way, will do something meaningful to help or any random act of kindness everyday starting Today (again).

Week 2 – Go Read Those Books and Be Inspired

The Years of …. Let me think….


Going back to blogging here is quite a small challenge. Well, I think I have to rake again my confidence to write even a simple note.  A courage, should I say.

Blogging I say is just my one way of having some sort of “accountability-partner” to help me commit or maybe put me in to-terms with my everyday moment, AWARE and all FIRED-UP.  That was the purpose I think why I have this blog 6 years back.

But as I reviewed my page now, and saw my stats, its quite too disappointing… to see, what? 1 blog year… haha… not even one last year (well there are 50 drafts beneath it, but that doesnt count, I know)… But here was the time gone… And where was I??

That was the question really… and lots of regrets actually…

Time passed, and I realized, that I somewhat “wasted” (oh such a strong word!) my time for the past ummm 2 years… doing practically things that just keep me by, or shall I say, just cruising and doing things “aimlessly” (ouch again)… I realized that I have not “hooked-up” myself in some grand plan or aspiration. Looking back, I wonder, what did I accomplish? or at least what did I contribute? I forgot, or I just not very interesting even to mention.

Well, bear with me, I will engage myself in lots of mind-exercise to take some memory-recall (and probably, blog it). Aside from recalling (aka doing throwbacks), I will “activate” again my passion-button and live purposefully, or what do you call that? wholeheartedly!

No excuses, no alibis.

Have to be at the moment ALWAYS.

Week 1 Blogging… (get that courage and keep the momentum)


My Next 52 weeks of Adventure… and more..


My Next 52 week of adventures (and misadventures) begin (again) today.  This day I am going back to my blog and revive again the fire and passion and aim and anchor of my everyday life.  Looking back, I have “justified” the purpose of my blogging as something that it keeps me anchored to my aim and goals and be conscious about my every precious minute spending with and for what truly matters… Lets start again….
