To celebrate or not to celebrate

Sometimes it is just good to keep things to yourself. It is a sign of humility. I am really thankful that day by day, I learn to do that. There are days that I am still this proud woman but I got to contemplate at the end of the day and just pray that I will not make the same sin again.

So, what is up with the title? Well, I have no right to claim or to brag about anything but I am just thankful to God that I got upgraded and yes, that means a salary increase. Would you believe that I learned about that news since June 22? Well, I have to be discreet about it as consideration for others. There was a new or sort of “implemented” old policy regarding salary increase. I am blessed to have movement thus I am not affected this year.

So, how did I celebrate? I just praise the Lord for this wonderful blessing and told my husband about it. Now, I am telling all of you. This blog is sort of my personal journal and it really gets as personal as it can get in terms of what I write.

All Honor and Glory Be To God for this wonderful blessing!

Domain Renewal

Gosh! Good thing that I checked my GoDaddy account! Domains are expiring very soon! What to do? Good thing as I checked my Paypal account, somebody paid! Wow! I am so happy! God is really good! This week has been really a good one. Thank You, Lord!

You know, even if I am not really a full time blogger, I do not want to lose my domains because, I think, somehow, I have established these already being in the world wide web for almost ten years now. As long as there are funds to renew the domains, of course, I shall continue to renew. I have not really kept track of the ROI but one thing, what I spend for these domains came from blogging anyways.

For a Great Dad

We went to the mall yesterday. Well, it was Father’s Day! We went there not to celebrate, though. We had our usual trip to the Supermarket inside the mall. The not so usual thing that we did is to just eat tuna salad sandwich for lunch. Yum! I also had a slice of Pizza! Cheat weekends! Anyways, I somehow felt guilty not being able to give my husband, who is a very good Dad, any gift. Maybe I could let him check out the bass guitars at Well, that would not be a maybe. I am sure that he would really be able to pick one since I am already offering.

What do I like to write today? I committed an error. However, with the grace of God, the error did not affect anyone but me. Well, I cannot really divulge the details here because it is confidential.

I thank God today for His blessing. For making me feel His Holy Spirit, reminding me to be more humble and kinder in my ways. I am not great. I can commit errors that maybe some people will take against me–I wholeheartedly accept the error. I ask forgiveness and I think I need to forgive myself as well.

Trusted source

When you talk about starcaster at, it is like talking about a real star. That is what guitar lovers will say, I am sure. Who does not want to have a starcaster, right? My hubby himself will like to have a new guitar. He found some sale items in the net but I recommend that he buys from a trusted source. Then, he saw starcaster. That is the end of the story, if you know what I mean.

The No Rice Diet

I am on my 14th day of no rice diet. Well, I have not lost much weight since I am not really depriving myself of food and carbohydrates. I just eliminated RICE.

Tomorrow, I plan to eliminate more carbs as I think I really need to take this diet to the next level. That is after lazing around for four days.

Remembering my Friend CloudEight

Today is May 12 and it is the birthday of a friend.

Well, I consider him as a friend as we were able to reconnect a few years ago thru Facebook.

He was a crush of mine?

Well, we had a mutual understanding of sort or we were just friends, I guess.

Okay, I think he was a Puppy love at my very young age of 15 and 16 and 17.

Well, he sort of made my world more colorful.

Anyways, I had a memory of one of his birthday parties, the first and last one that I was able to attend.

He invited me, so, I attended.

I was very excited and nervous and I did all those preparations to look good and smell good,(huh!)

So, we went to his party. He was surprised? Anyways, he greeted me and OMG, I got a peck on my Left Cheek, a seconder one at that or maybe, it was not even a second.

I forgot if I did bring a gift? Maybe not? I was already a big gift (hahaha!).

Anyways, the dreaded part? Yes, the dreaded one—he introduced me to his girlfriend!!! Imagine that!

I kept him in my heart for two years and we were even “pen pals” as he was working abroad already, we had a seven, almost eight years gap—thus my codename for him (CloudEight).

I was shocked and wanted to leave the party right away.

My friends sort of sympathized with me and just tried to cheer me up.

I could not remember if I was able to eat. (hahaha!)

Anyways, we lost contact after that. I had a real boyfriend when I reached 18. That boyfriend of mine is my husband now. (happy endings, huh!)

So, just a couple of years ago, CloudEight and I was able to reconnect. Yeah, we are both matured already. No hard feelings anymore as I realized how a gentleman he was for taking care of my feelings. He did not take advantage of me at all. I must admit, during our first conversations thru messenger, I was sort of joyful.

Today, I remember him.

He passed away a year ago because of a very painful accident. He was in public service. He was just trying to help one of his neighbors but he turned out dead. It was very sad.

I know he is in heaven now. He was a good man.

CloudEight, my prayers for you, now that you are in heaven. I also ask you to watch over me also and be one of my angels.(if it is not too much to ask)

Thank you for all the memories—all the colors that you contributed to my teenage years.
