What Are The Things To Be Thankful For On Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is one of the best times of the year. From the word itself, we should have time to reflect on the things that we are grateful for. Even in our troublesome days, there is still a positive effect in our life that made us complete and you should be thankful of that.

Here in the Philippines, we do not celebrate Thanksgiving with a turkey and other things. But as a Christian, there are a lot of things to be thankful for every day.

1. You’re alive and healthy – this is the number one thing that we should be grateful.

2. Your family and friends who are there to support you

3. Opportunities – whether in the office or by chance it is still a blessing. The opportunity that will give you success in life. Opportunities comes after us…

30 Feminist Lessons in 30 Years

Posted: August 17, 2014 in Personal

On July 28, I crossed over into my thirties. The lead-up to the day was a slurry of thoughts and feelings about this huge milestone, marked by bursts of self-reflection and a quick skip down that list of classic questions about “where I am” in my life. Inspired by the lovely Alexis, I thought it prudent to try to gather this slurry into a collection of lessons best learned over the last three decades. I’ve spent this time constituting and reconstituting my feminist politic, and figured it would be worth a quick review.

  1. There is no choice without access. Women don’t have the right to safe abortion if there are no clinics. Women don’t have the right to vote if voter ID laws marginalize them. Women don’t have the right to be in public spaces if there is the omnipresent threat of physical and sexual violence. This is structural oppression, and (unfortunately) we need…

Vietnam Trip: the Party Bus

Posted: July 25, 2014 in Personal

At this moment, we’re riding a bus on our way to Hue, Vietnam. We called it “The Party Bus” because of the blue red lights on the windows. The cool thing about this bus is you can adjust your seats so you can lay down. You will feel comfortable because it comes with a blanket and a small pillow.

Before we left the hotel, we met two Dutch nationals named “Eddie” and “Marco”, and an Asian guy “Oliver” and “James” from Taiwan. They are backpackers who’ve been to different places in Asia particularly Thailand, Indonesia, Korea and Japan. And sharing their travelling experience.


Back to the party bus, though we’re excited to reach our destination. However, people got disappointed on how they’ve been treated, especially when they found out that it is not exclusive for them. I don’t know if I will feel embarrassed, maybe because we’re used to treat visitors as VIP. I’m saying this because I can feel their frustration, but they’ve been very understanding about it.

So far, it’s been good. It is still the best transportation by land that I’ve had because we don’t have this back home. The party bus is always a party bus. Anything can happen here.. Let’s see in the next 12 hours.


I apologize for any errors here.. I’m typing from my phone..

If your wedding is coming up and you are a first time bride, I hope this will help you look for your perfect dress. You want to make sure that everything will be romantic and memorable on your big day.

Finding a perfect dress is the most important part of every bride’s dream wedding because every girl wants to become a princess on her big day.

Wedding dresses became a symbol of wedding cultures all around the world from famous queens to modern women of the century. It symbolizes purity, modesty and perfection. But mainly, wearing this wedding dress mean embracing a commitment to your partner and the end of your single life. It is the beginning of your new journey in marriage.

It is 2014! Happy New Year to everyone. I believe you’re listing your new years resolution. Some of my friends say they will start dieting, not to be late at work, quit smoking, or look for a good job. I’ve been reading posts in different sites and number one trending topic is “hashtag” resolutions. Some are just reflecting what had happened during the past year. I know there are a lot of things that happened last 2013. I confessed it is not a good year for me though my career has been good to me. But I learned a lot of lessons.


This 2014, I don’t have any new years resolutions. Instead, I have listed some of my goals and dreams that I want to fulfill this year. For me it is more meaningful than listing resolutions. Goals can motivate you. It is a long term achievement. Resolutions are like temporary and sometimes if you are lazy and undetermined, you will not achieve it.

This year I want to focus on myself more. I’ve been so stressed at work lately so, I would like to have at least a day of relaxing, spending time alone and meditate. It will help me to focus on what I want in my life. Planning for the future. And also, this is the time to talk to God for guidance.

Second, since I want to plan for the future, I need to work hard and start earning. Aside from my current job, I’m working as a freelancer. I’m actually proud of my work since I love blogging and writing things. I’m not a professional blogger but at least I write what I can and share experiences with others.

Third, I want to start exploring the world. I’m planning to visit Vietnam hopefully late 2014. I think I need to know more about our world and appreciate the beauty of nature. Experience different cultures and meet more people.

At this moment, those things motivate me. And I will keep myself motivated to achieve what I want in life. I was blessed with so many things. And with those blessings I can be a blessing to others. I will meet new people as time goes by and I want to listen to their stories and experiences.

I want to share this song to you. Just remember that whatever happens in your life just “Keep Breathing“.
