My proud accomplishments for 2012
Early last year (2012), I wrote a resolution titled “Cheers to 24 years and onwards.” I just still couldn’t believe my eyes after reviewing my list of “to-do” list, I have accomplished so many things in a very short time! Let me set a review: 1. EARN MY FIRST MILLION 2. SAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY MY OWN HOUSE AND LOT 3. SAVE MONEY FOR MY DREAM...

Never love anyone who treats you like you’re ordinary.– Oscar Wilde
Never have sex with a man for the wrong reasons. Don’t sleep with him to...– Page Parker, The Author or Dating without Drama
Throughout our lives, we’re told a lot of lies about love. For example: “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” “Love is blind.” And my personal pet peeve… “You complete me.” (As if another human being can actually make an unfulfilled person become whole. Ridiculous.) Whether they come in the form of song lyrics, movie...
When a situation is extremely important to us, we have a tendency to go blank on our instincts and to overthink the situation. When there is a powerful emotional component, and when there is something in the situation that we fear as well as something we desire, these things can clog our ability to hear our inner wisdom or understand our gut instincts. That is why when you are talking with friends...

Home of Two Faiths.
I was reading an old magazine while cleaning the stock room and I saw an issue of Smart Parenting where the cover was Ruffa Gutierez-Bektas. Beneath this celebrity mom’s skin, actress, beauty titlist, savi shopper, high-profile wife…to daughters Lorin and Venice, though, she’s nowhere near superstar status ‘til she’s memorized the barney song! After reading her story, I never knew that there’s one...
Think like a genius!
Genius is made, not born. At least that’s the premise of Michael Gelb’s book entitled, How to think like Leonardo da Vinci: Seven Steps to Genius Everyday. Extrapolating from Da Vinci’s notebooks, inventions and legendary work of art, Gelb introduces seven Da Vincian principles, which he considered the essential elements of genius. I’m a little skeptical about ever achieving genius staus, but I...
I watched a movie today that somewhat added up the courage in me to move forward…in a sense to forget the past and look to a better future ahead. The title is It’s complicated. Most of the 500 GB memory of my laptop is composed of downloaded movies by my ex-fiancé. This laptop was actually his gift for my graduation last 2010 and he uploaded everything he thinks I needed to entertain me while...
Stop spending time with the wrong people. – Life is too short to spend time with...
It is difficult knowing who is right for you and who is wasting your time, who is trustworthy and who is unstable, unscrupulous, or even dangerous. We try to apply logic to the situation, and that helps. But most of us in the dating world find that we are perfectly capable of making terrible mistakes and of caring quite deeply about someone who has few redeeming features or who just isn’t a good...

Wanting the Best.
Most parents would agree that the most important thing they want for their children is happiness. But what brings happiness? Different people will have very different ideas about this. Many will see happiness as something you feel as a result of some other desirable situation. Therefore, when parents are asked the question, What do you want for your children as they grow up? They are more likely...
A man who thinks he can.
When I was made redundant, it ’s fair to say there were some dark moments and challenging times. I drew strength from family and friends, but I also drew confidence from a poem that I had on my wall. The poem goes by two titles: “Thinking” and the more commonly used “The man who thinks he can. ” Here it is: If you think you are beaten you are. If you think you dare not, you don’t. If you’d like to...
What is Kama Sutra
Of all the treasures of learning that Europeans have acquired from the Far East, Kama Sutra is perhaps the best known, along with Yoga and Buddhism. Starting with the industrial revolution of the late 18th century and the advent of fashionable foreign traveling, Europe and Northern America have been flooded with art objects, ideas, values and philosophy from the Far East that changed, to a certain...
The Greatest Science
“It is better to have loved and lost than never to love at all,” This statement, which was relevant at the time when Alfred Lord Tennyson came to mind while hearing the words of the leading character in the hit movie, My Best Friend’s Wedding: “If you love someone, say it. You say it right then, OUT LOUD, or the moment just passes you by. A person will never know true happiness until he has truly...

How my dream house blossomed.
My dream house started when I was 13 years old. It was when I had drafting and arts classes in UST Highschool that my professor who was an architect inspired me so much on arts and structures. I was infact the best in his class, the BEST in UST high. My name would appear in the “hall of fame” at the school’s lobby every quarter to have a grade of 95 (which was a perfect grade during those days) in...
Daniel Goleman talks about the Emotional Quotient, or “EQ” (kind of like IQ for emotions) in his book titled, “Emotional Intelligence”. If you haven’t read it, go get this book. It’s got some amazing insights. Now, let me share what I have learned from this book. People often think that simply having lots of feelings means they are emotionally in-touch. Wrong. Being emotionally literate does NOT...
I was reading an article that caught my eyes in facebook. For a science field graduate like me, I do sometimes tend to question God’s existence. Still, I’m glad my parents raised me to be God-fearing and faithful to one’s belief. So let me share this article not only about Christianity but also applies to any religion as long as you believe in God. Faith is the link between man...

My Little Secret: Men are like balloons
Today, a drop-dead-gorgeous girl told me she liked me and I was very flattered. The situation made me remember another flattering moment. A gay friend(not g-u-y, but yes, he’s g-a-y.) of mine told me that I was the first girl he ever fell in love with. I was overwhelmed and what’s more overwhelming was, he asked me, what’s my secret for being such an Aphrodite. I laughed and told him, that he’s...

Please,Oh Please Let Love Lead the Way
When love comes to call on you, it wants to be valued and received. It wants to be an honored guest in your life. After all, you’ve been saying you want to know the joy of real romance. You want to be married and know the depth of a long-term commitment. You want to grow together, in grace and well-being. That’s what you say. So, what if love accepts your invitation and wholeheartedly shows up?...

For a young lady like me, I have encountered heart brakes that changed my whole world! Thanks to those heart brakes, I grew stronger and wiser in life full of love. So, here I share how I managed to stand up tall once again from a hardcore fall. 1. Cut off all communication. This is the hardest thing to do, but the best thing for you.

My Journey as a single mom.
Just before my eldest daughter went to bed, she told me the most wonderful words that touched my heart and made my goals in life into a 180 degress turn towards the right direction. I got pregnant when I was 18 years old. The first time I had ever used a pregnancy test was the first time I got delayed. And with that, it was positive. Yes, I was not prepared but I never felt fear nor worry. I was...
Just A Glimpse of Past Love.
Five months ago, I wrote this blog of what my dream wedding be. Everything changes from time to time and the only thing that’s constant is change. Somehow, I can say that my dream wedding five months ago and my dream wedding right now is far from different because I changed. My feelings changed. My priorities changed. I’m not the same person I used to be. I’m a far better person...
Someone just made my heart sing happy songs!– Clara Hart
The Meaning of Love
Another way of finding a meaning in life is by experiencing something – such as goodness, truth and beauty. By experiencing nature and culture or last but not least, by experiencing another human being in his very uniqueness—by loving him. Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality. No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human...
Those Silly Magazine Advice.
A man and his girlfriend were married. It was a large gathering. All of their friends and family came to witness the lovely ceremony and partake of the festivities and celebration. Everyone had a wonderful time. The bride was gorgeous in her white wedding gown and the groom was very dashing in his black tuxedo. Everyone could tell that the love they had for each other was true. A few months...
My Priority Do Not: Forcing Your Feelings On A Man
Some women just don’t look out for, or they just plainly ignore, the signs when a man has extremely low emotional potential. (That he isn’t capable of experiencing much emotional attachment and intimacy.) Instead, they start by trying to convince a man that he should have the same emotional feelings she does. Women often say that it’s normal to have feelings of emotional involvement, and that it...
