How many weeks left before my graduation?

Hmmn.

I don’t care counting my days to experience the last school smash

Pardon??

Yeah you read it right; maybe I’m imaginative person dreaming to enjoy every minute of my fab.  Life:

Reading at times not sleeping

Doing rather than watching (like creating an art)

Sharing not egoistic

Asking not guessing

Choose to be healthy everyday not only when needed

 Image

These impractical thoughts are not my daily routine, this is a practice of myself discovery moment.  Lols

I don’t want to do the normal things its kinda boring habit—-it’s a matter of choice and devotion to accomplish what I wish for.

I train myself well PEMS (dash) D <Physically, Emotionally, Mentally, Spiritually/ Decisively>

Flash back…

High school trains me to become an open person and learn about the universe (broad info).But it is not about good vibes each day, those bully people that I’ve met in high school seems a big problem that I’m facing from my teen’s years. However, I accept the reality that people come and go to your precious life leave a mark of lessons.

Facing my four years in college is the best part of my life, not because I have a freedom to do what I want but I learned different things.

I don’t map things ahead; I prefer to plan for a day but not for my whole life here on earth. The result, I always crave for another awesome thing to aspire. For all my fellow friends reaching their college years don’t stuck up yourself culturing theories. Learn to value your time by means of reading (not a reference book) or if you have spare time hang out with your best buddies.  Explore the world of technology and upgrade yourself.

We only live once so make a big beat to the world, and I assure you every minute of your life is praiseworthy.

So common dude don’t just act normally be the person you want to be.

One week before my special day comes I suppose to plan for a picnic type lunch with my good friends in HRDM, Marketing, Accountancy, HRM and ABCOM. But in my mind I want to commemorate my birthday with the people that close to my heart (aside from my family, I adore elders).

Homemade cupcakes from my best friend Jill Ann

Sharing aside I am “lola’s girl”, she’s always there at my me, whether Christmas party at school, my performance number, card giving and graduation. I am willing to give up everything for my Lola Flor who’s love and care cannot be duplicated. Since I was young I understand that my parents are busy to earn lots of money for our future (that mentality was came also to my lola).  I’ll never hear any terrible words from her; she loves to encourage me in the right path.

From that moment of reflection I choose to celebrate my birthday with the elders, but the big problem is when, where and how. Grabbing my lappy, I search for charitable institution in Calamba, Laguna. Luckily there are many blogs sharing their collection of memories with elder at Bahay ni Maria in Brgy. Sampiruhan.

Monday morning I go  there to visit the place and make an appointment too. I arrive alone, but I leave with pleasure because I met the beautiful lola’s in Bahay ni Maria.

On the next day Feb. 12, 2013, together with my best friend Jill Ann. We bring some foods for their lunch.

How can I describe my feeling?

“SATISFYING”

While I was walking to bring their food I heard two lola’s singing Happy Birthday Song, Maalaala mo kaya etc. I feel so special, all I want to do is to cry and hug them (tears of joy and surprise). Seriously I’ll never experience this before.

I roam around them and ask Sister Evelyn and various caregiver about the different stories behind these innocent people.

According to them, they are randomly come from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. They found on the street and abandoned by their families. These Lola’s is very weak and need intensive care, despite of their condition they can laugh and perform well’ (I owe their good memories in memorizing the lyrics of the song).

I keep on being quiet and pray that soon their families might find them. I also salute the concerned people who took care of them for the longest time.

Being a Lola’s girl, they are very close to my heart.

My dear friends I hope you recognize the value of sharing and giving back by pondering exceptional joy in their hearts (elders). Don’t hesitate to help, you don’t need to have perfect time just to lend a hand…it’s our duty and responsibility to aid people in need. The best gift for them is OURSELVES.

They don’t need money to sustain their needs but unconditional love.

I will always include them in my prayers. I LOVE YOU ALL’ hip Lola’s of BAHAY NI MARIA.

Hooray!

Ito na siguro ang pinaka memorable na retreat sa buong buhay ko.

Simula nung first high school palang ako  marami na akong naexperience na recollection and retreat.

Image

The best kami, dahil yung section namin yung pinaka magulo (4th year St. Matthew) at the same time Masaya kaming nagkasamasama sa malamig na lugar ng tagaytay Bretania retreat house. Simula palang ng byahe namin ay punong puno na ng katatawanan at asaran. Nakakaiyak ang mga sandaling kasama mo sila at pagsapit ng ilang buwan ay malalayo na kayo sa isat isa. Doon ko unang na-experience ang retreat.

Ngayong 2013…

Magaganap muli ang isa sa pinaka importanteng pangyayari sa aking buhay “PAGHAYO” (Retreat for Graduating College Students).

 Ako yung taong hindi sanay ng walang ginagawa, kayang kong pagsabayin ang lahat ng kailangan kong tapusin sa loob ng isang araw. Hindi ako kumportable na nakaupo lang sa isang tabi at matulog ng mahabang oras. Simple lang ang dahilan ko, “too much sleeping leads to laziness” which is true. Gusto kong gawin yung isang bagay na hindi karaniwan na ginagawa ng iba— “ang paggising ng maaga”.

Ganoon nalang ang pagpapahalaga ko sa buhay, “each day I want to add something new”.

This retreat helps me to “take a pause for a moment with silence”. Minsan kailangan ko din mag-break sa paggiging busy ko, dahil hindi ko namamalayan na nawawalan na ako ng oras sa ating panginoon.

Define Calaruega.

Malamig, peaceful yung lugar at napaka- solemn

Hidden yung lugar na to, at kailangan mo ng sariling sasakyan para marating ang isang napakagandang retreat house na may chapel sa loob.

Tahimik lang akong nakikinig sa mga daily sessions namin for 3 days, may iyakan (lalo na yung liham ng aking magulang), tawanan at kasiyahan kasama ang aking mga kaibigan at kaklase.

Naalala ko tuloy yung isang lyrics ng kanta:

“Kay sarap mabuhay punong puno ng kulay”

 Image

Ipinangako ko sa aking sarili na babalik ako sa lugar na ito’ na siyang nagpadama sa akin na andyan lang palagi si Papa God, na lumikha ng lahat ng magagandang bagay na ating nakikita.
