Qou Vadis Marianne?

It seems that my world stops. Nothing to write, nothing to do, nothing to think. I feel like my life gets duller and duller. I want to go out from this nutshell but I do not know how. I’m chained with my fears and anxieties. And I want to break free.

My fears are my nightmares. I spent several sleepless nights, and I always ask myself “where will I go?” 

I feel like I’m drowning into the pit of quicksand… in the middle of nowhere.

Quicksand??? I should not move, or else I will be buried alive.

Indeed....... my world stops.

At My Grave

Me? Dying??? Nope, am not. I just want to share a poem which I found somewhere else. And I just love it.

At My Grave

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning husto
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die.


P.S. when I die, please remember this poem….

TATAY – that’s how we called our father. Almost everyone in our place called him tatay, maybe because he possesses a fatherly figure to them. He is a very loving father. Although he is not the affectionate type, I know he loves us. He always makes sure that we are provided with our needs even though there is nothing left for him. 
I know he had so many sacrifices in life. From birth to the time when his first wife died, even up to now (but lesser). When we are in pain and disappointment, I can see his concern to us through his passionate eyes, that if only he can do something for us just to ease the pain that we feel. 

He is a very hardworking man. He woke up as early a 3:00 am to prepare our breakfast. Although he was not able to finish schooling, but I’m proud to say he was able to go to the top of the ladder as a successful man. 

He is a very good cook. And I highly recommend his adobo. He is the one who prepare our foods especially when there is an occasion at home. His grandchildren would blame him when they were not able to follow their diet regime (LOL), because they end up eating a lot of rice because of the sumptuous, mouthwatering foods prepared by my father.

Even though he is earning far more than what he earned before, he do not forget to help people. Indeed my father is a very generous man. Maybe that’s the reason why we receive a lot of blessings.

Sometimes my father is also stubborn especially when it comes to his vices – smoking. And he was guarded with his grandchildren just to help him stop smoking. So sometimes he sneaks and tastes a small puff of cigarette. But once caught by his grandchildren, (LOL) I’m not going to elaborate what would eventually happen (LOL). 

Loving, hardworking, a God fearing person and a man with dignity – that’s what my Tatay is.

Happy Father’s Day Tay…. 

 We Love you. xoxoxox

However there are terms in IT which I could not fully understand. Good thing I’ve stumbled to the webhostinggeeks blog. After reading some posts of this site, only did I realize that my knowledge in IT is century behind (LOL).

A Twist of Faith

My mother is always saying she wants to marry Jesus, (that is becoming a nun). But God has another plan for her; at age of 32 she got married to a widower. So instantly she had 4 daughters and 1 son.

I know it’s not easy to step on that kind of marriage life. But whatever problems or trials they have encountered, I know they have face and combated it together with faith in God. The abundance I experienced right now, material or not, I owe it to both of them.

If you’d ask me how my relationship with my half sisters and brother is, I think I would not consider them as my half; after all we develop a very close tight relationship. Thanks to our parents. For 31 years of marriage life, I think they deserve the best. Happy anniversary to both of you!!!

We love you!!!! xoxoxoxox

By the way my father's name is JESUS (pronounced as Hesus).

It's a Preggy Year

2009 has brought a lot of surprises to me:

• My friend Jackie is 3 months pregnant. Jackie is a very bubbly, childish, smart friend of mine and very stubborn (LOL) but she’s very good to me. I consider her as one of my little sister when I was in Allegro Company before. And as her big sister, she confided to me from the courting period of her hubby and till now even we no longer work in the same company.

• Another close friend of mine Adorna is five months pregnant. Adorna is my colleague back in Yu Jin Company and my housemate for a couple of year. I know they were waiting this for so long. Congrats to both of you!

• A colleague where I’m currently working is also pregnant. As I know she and her husband were waiting this for 3 years.

• And after a couple of year of marriage, Carmela, my highschool, is at last pregnant. 


• My sister in law after 6 years of marriage is finally pregnant. Yehey!!! We thought they could not bear a child anymore. They even adopted a child and named her Angel. She’s turning 4 this November. Hope everything will be okay.

Everything is worth waiting for.

I Am a Volcano

I am a volcano
Dormant? Active?
I do not know.

I stood still
I’m just observing.

Sometimes I erupted
Roaring madly.
Feeling burst 
Hot lava flows.

No more lava;
Expressed bitterness.
I am a volcano
That comes to rest.

Direct TV: Ideal for Every Family Member

Our family is an avid fan of Manny Pacquiao. He was truly a phenomenal in all his battles. But we are always delayed watching his games since we are dependent on local station, one who sponsored his game. What happened is that we already knew the winner (through friends who had watched via live coverage) before we can watch his fights in the rink. So the thrill was already gone.

I think its best time to purchase direc tv. I’ve learned that they offer 265+ channels that are programmed in the system driven to offer costumers more choices. Wooah!!! An unbelievable wide selection of entertainment for every member of our family, so it’s simply means we can watch different games not just fights of Manny Pacquiao. And with direc tv, we can now watch different movies, so it’s like bringing a theater into your home. That’s cool!!! 

With direc tv, we can now watch Manny Pacquiao’s game in real time and can clearly see his moves and how his fist landed to his opponents, because direc tv is an all-digital, so every channel comes in crystal-clear. That’s exciting, isn’t it?
