I am calling to all those hackers, please have mercy and do not steal from others.
How time flies. It is Sunday once again and April is about to end in three days. It is just like New Year’s Eve yesterday but now, midyear is here in two months time. I have not been really running with the clock. I would like to do many things but they are just inside my mind and not yet put into action. I always wanted to start but not able to. I do not know what is hindering me. I have to go back at that list and hopefully will see a check mark at even one of them.

When we were kids, we were told of which direction to take.
As we grow older, we choose our direction.
Have we gone the right way?
There are many paths to take.
It is our decision to follow a certain one.
They say that there is no looking back?
I believe that since we can turn to the left or to the right
To East or to the West
There is also north and south
So is front and back
Hope you have chosen the right direction
Towards something that you always wanted
But if not, be free to come back or turn the other way
After all, it is you, your direction.

Ask and you shall receive. This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. I apologize that I do not now where it came from. I think it is from Matthew? Anyways, this is very true for me this morning when I woke up and said my prayers. I asked God for something and He gave it to me eventually. God is good all the time! He also provides us with the things we need. I have written in the past posts that we are going through the rough roads lately but I do not have the right to complain at all. We are surviving and that is with His Great Love and Mercy.

I would like to share a story about giving tips, like tip for a waiter, for a taxi driver or anything you give tips to. By the way, do you give tips?
Before my story, is it true that in
I give tips and very generous about it when I was still single. But now that I have a family of my own, I am somehow not much into it already. Anyways, I have nothing against about giving tips because my sister once worked for a restaurant and a part of their earnings come from tips.
I think giving tips should be voluntary.
So, here is my story…Are you thinking that it will not come? LOL! Actually, I sort of forgot about it...He, he.
It was a day before our payday, you know what that means, right? I was almost broke and what’s left in my budget was only what to spend for the next day like transportation and lunch. The bank opens at 1pm. It was actually our salary to be credited by 1pm. So, we were about to go home and being in the night shift, it meant that we had to rush to be able to catch the last Metro Train ride. There were no jeepneys passing by so we decided to take a cab. The MRT station is actually a 3- 5 minute walk from our office so you can imagine how near it is. But, it was already 935PM and the last trip is 937PM. So, the cab driver put the meter down and it read P30.00. It was not moving until we reached the station, then it read P32.50. I was happy because I had an exact amount (almost) of P33.00. Therefore, I paid him P33.00 and he said that I should pay P40.00. But, I do not have any coins anymore. What I had was a hundred bucks. So, I pleaded and told him to consider it next time because our money was just enough for the exact fare. He mumbled that we should have taken a tricycle instead. My companion said that I should had obliged and paid P40. I did not know what came to me but I was just not in the mood to give a tip that day.
So, there it was. What do you think?

I am so excited and I just cannot hide it. Tomorrow is the day and I just love it. I am getting thin, getting thin, fats, goodbye to you. Hey, are you actually thinking that I am writing a song? I must admit that I am singing while writing the excitement that I am feeling for tomorrow. It is the start of the weight loss program drive in our office. And, I am one of the participants. I actually should not be proud of it because it only means that I am not that healthy but still I am happy to be part of it. I will mark it as the day that I will actually decide or have decided to let go of the extra pounds that have been with me for almost five years now! No, I will not miss them!
I also have a child and as the days go by, I realized that it is a hard task. Disciplining, incorporating good values, making him feel loved, feeding him. Bringing up a good person in this world would really be the greatest success of a parent.
Children have this manipulative sense of being. One of their weapons is their loud crying! They love to dare also. You would know that you lose when a slipper or a belt fly away and touches your child’s buttocks. I lost today. Now, I do not know how to face that defeat. Who will say sorry or first to say hello again? I want to play strong or else, I will just let him think that indeed, he has the power over me.

Here are the three basic expressions that we can easily tell in a human face.
Happy- we all smile when we are happy, aren't we? That is the normal expression, at least.
Sad- sometimes we cry when we are sad
Angry- the ugliest face? We tend to show off some wrinkles when we are angry. But we need to express it at times or else, our heart might explode!
none as of the moment
Invent a new word that you feel would improve the language and define it.
Momdy or Dymom- for all those single parents or not a real mommy or a real daddy in gender
What is your favorite texture?
I guess, smooth
Gluttony, one of the mortal sins or should I say deadly? Literally speaking. I experienced its cause yesterday. I thought I will just collapse and be out of breath. I feasted with too much food until I do not feel discomfort nor was I just testing my limit? Oh, those 10-12 pizza slices in one sitting days are long gone. Yes, I cannot do that anymore. I should not commit gluttony anymore. I always tell that to myself but whenever a buffet table is in front of me, I cannot help but dig in. Just like yesterday. It was free meals at the training. Not just packed lunch but food overflowing.4 main courses of beef, pork, seafoods and chicken. To balance the meal, there were buttered vegetables, salad bar, fresh fruits. For dessert, there were carrot and chocolate cake. Iced tea was also served to push what I had taken in for more room. Imagine that! Thank you to one of our colleagues to leave the fellowship part of the program. That meant being saved from another pigging bout.But that was only because we were to attend the birthday celebration f our dear friend. Food and more food. I can still proudly say that I missed eating two favorite dishes because I had over eaten already from morning to evening. It was payback time when I was on my way home. I really felt all the deadly threats of gluttony. I even thought of death and the news that will come out. What was the cause of death? Overeating! In Filipino, katakawan.Ugly.Real ugly.

You’ve got to follow the sun! I always sing this song whenever I see sunflowers. Is it true that it really opens to the sun’s direction? I really love sunflowers! It brings some good memories when I, together with my college friends live in the Summer Capital of the
