I just want to share this text message sent my a friend:

" You hate the Filipinos for the hostage fiasco earlier this week, right? Then should I hate Chinese people for the lead poisoning and melamine contamination? Where in not eight, but hundreds, maybe even thousands have suffered. Is it right to blame a whole nation for a mistake of one man? If you do, then you are most dense. No arguments. Just an opinion"

Friday Photo Flashback

This was my sister (September 12) and mom's (September 11) joint birthday. I remembered my mum kept holding my hands because I can't seem to control my desire to lick the icing with my hands (which until now I still do *winks*).  As you can see my, my sister had a huge smile while my eyes were obviously taking a peek if mum was watching. I miss them. I miss how we all use to be together. I think I've mentioned in my older post that my sissy is already at Singapore and my partner in crime cousin Kyong already lives at Virginia. Sad..=)

My choice of movie is wackier than expected. If you have to watch a film with an enemy, try BLADES OF GLORY.

Now this film is a tear jerker, not melodramatically, but in the most hilarious way ever. It made me laugh like a "gazillion" times (the facial expressions, the dialogs,). And this is a unique film watching with an enemy because the film itself is about sworn enemies who curse each other for life. But their desire and love for skating made them a team, joint forces, cooperating and helping each other. Eventually, what seems to be a hopeless case of fighting, result to a pact of brotherhood they never did imagine to happen.

Watch this funny trailer:

The latest movie I have seen with my Martin (love of my life) was THE EXPENDABLES. I'm no fan of action movies, but I still find myself enjoying it anyway. Martin and I usually take turns when it comes to choosing what type of movie we have to watch. Sometimes, we have a common interest but when it comes to super action movies, he's actually the man. So obviously this is his pick and I have no choice but drag myself to the movie house. Anyway, I think the movie was great, I mean maybe for him. Laugh at me, I slept for like 30 minutes. Haha! Not that the movie was boring, maybe it wasn't interesting enough for me to keep me awake. Then he was so overwhelmed with the thrill and action, he repeated it again. Huh! Pity me. I have to endure again another long 1 hour and a half. Anything for lovey...=)

fighting the pessimism disease

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 8/20/2010 03:35:00 PM 2 comments Links to this post

From a three day blast comes reality. Back to the real world. The hassle and pessimist sighs. I don't want to feel even a twitch of disappointment because I want to be as positive as possible, but I can't help it. Last week brought me into heights with a little expectation that I can nail an on line job, which turns out to be another wishful thinking. I almost have it! I was on step 3! One step more to go and tssaaaddaaa, I'm hired. Now what?. Back to a virtual job haunt again.  

I just want to earn more than what I can in the non-virtual world. I want to buy things that I cannot bought for myself when I have a regular job. I want to buy something for myself out of what I've been sowing. I believe I cannot do that in my previous job (no bad mouthing or what). I want to have the things I dreamed of having. I hate saying these things, but having them left unsaid is pissing me off the same. Wheew...So sad..

But then I would like to uplift myself with these few lines from a song "try again...never stop believing" ...=)

Friday Photo Flashback

Now this was my funny fourth birthday. I had a little celebration with my first cousins . As you can see in the picture I below, I was pissed because I was suppose to be one who's going to blow those candles but you can see what happen. Boy, you can tell how "mad" I look like.

But good thing my mum asked to blow those candles again. And I was happy. Bow.

I was packing my stuff for my Camiguin trip when I saw this composition I wrote almost four years ago. You can probably imagine the sentiments I had at that very moment.


I remembered before that my greatest dream is to finally meet my prince. I am or was a hopeless romantic and all that crap maybe. I have never known what it’s like to have a romantic partner in my life; mine was solely base on daydreams and sappy movies I’ve seen like a zillion times. So my idea of a relationship was basically ideal and anything you can
imagine of from a damsel in distress. But fairytale has to end one day because this time it’s for real. I met him. The real life man of my dreams, the man whom I can always imagine to be my prince, the man who turns my life into a fairytale and the half of me that makes me whole. But to tell you, things are not all about fantasies. I didn’t expect that my greatest dream could give so much pain. That having your great love could also mean having to shed so many
tears. Someone once told me that once you commit yourself in a relationship, you should be ready to get hurt and cry. And there was more to that, I suppose.

My perception of a relationship was that of which your behalf would never do anything that would hurt you or he won’t even let any tear fell from you eyes. But reality wise, I was all wrong. The more you love the person, the more tears you will shed. He made me cry for so many times and for so many reasons. Words that were not meant to be said were told. I have with me a shattered heart and a silent scream of painful tears bombarded within. We keep on hurting each other. Our differences boil out which lead to conflicts and constant fights. There was a point in our relationship when I have to ask myself if I can still be foolish enough to let him hurt me. And I was crazy and all that because I end up forgiving him like what I usually do. I lowered down my inflated ego. I even apologize for things I didn’t even do. This is the folly thing about love; when you tend to do things which never in your entire life would you imagine doing it.

But the irony stands, the more I am hurt, the more I continue to love him. Because no matter how much we hurt each other we always end up loving each other more. That despite the puffy eyes he caused me, spent from too much sobbing, I still can’t imagine giving up and seeing myself with somebody else. Nobody could ever send me jolts and shivers down my spine with that soft delicate touch. Nobody could give me butterflies in my stomach the way he does. Only that face can make me smile and cry-for-no-reason-at-all at the same time, because that is the face of the only man I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with. Nobody could ever watch me sleep and play with my lips the way he does. Nobody could tell me
that I look so beautiful even if I just wear the simplest outfit. Nobody could ever tell me that I have something in my teeth or patiently wipe the ketchup spill in my cheeks. Nobody could ever sacrifice the last piece of his food just for me to be happy even if we have the same share. Nobody. Nobody. Nobody but him. Only him alone can hurt me this much because only him I can love this much. And because only him alone can give up everything in this world but never the love of his life.

I was hurt. I am hurt. And I know, I would still be hurt. But this pain I’ve been going through is the kind of pain I never regret going back again and again.


GT# 4 - facing the giants

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 8/12/2010 10:56:00 AM 11 comments Links to this post

Now this is not a romantic movie or the giddy love stories. One of the best I watched! Actually this is a wholesome movie, that everyone can watch. But I can also recommend this for couples, especially those who can't bear a child. How a wife stays with his husband through thick and the thinest.

It is an action-packed drama about a Christian high school football coach who uses his undying faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear. Facing the Giants is a powerful experience for the whole family inspiring viewers to live with faith, hope, and love!

Blogging is one way of expressing one’s thoughts and opinions through writing. It’s not only exclusive for writers, but it’s also for people who have so much to share.

I started to join the blog society last year. But due to work demands, I was not able to sustain my posts. But when I quit my job last May 2010, I decided to go back and indulge myself in the blog arena. And luckily, a friend of mine introduced me to Social Spark. Social Spark is where bloggers, like me, can make money by either placing display advertisements on their blog or by writing sponsored content. This is not only useful for bloggers alone, but also an advantage for advertisers. They can promote their products with the help of bloggers (they are paying) who will market their merchandise through blogs. This can also be a form of low-priced commercial.

Signing up for Social Spark is an easy process. You just need one blog to register and make sure that it’s really yours. Your blog must be 90 days old and has at least twenty 20 original (non-sponsored) posts.

I had undergone through this process myself:
First – I registered to www. Socialspark.com
Second – I registered my blog and claimed it. Actually, they provided step by step methods that are really easy to understand.
Third - Then I just waited for the result. It will just take days. I checked both my email and Social spark network all the time. Since they will just send you a message whether your blog has been approve or not.

At first, they were unable to approve my blog since my posts did not reach the minimum-20-posts SOP. But with patience and determination, they approved my second application. And now, I’m looking forward for opportunities where I can earn and somewhat support my needs.
So, what are you waiting for? Signing is up is FREE. Just click the link below.

WORDFUL WEDNESDAY - wordless enough

Posted by LIMBERELLA at 8/11/2010 06:12:00 PM 4 comments Links to this post

Now I believe this is wordless enough. Haha! On the right is my sister and his hubby, while on the left corner is me and my boyfriend. Now that pose was the photographer's idea. (defensive?!) When I upload this picture at my facebook, you can't imagine the flooding comments with blurt out jokes like "contest" or the meany "so, feeling bride". Don't care. It was indeed wordless.

Roots and Wings

My daughter’s letter to the man she will love someday

By Cathy Babao-Guballa

Philippine Daily Inquirer


First Posted 22:05:00 08/08/2010

RELATIONSHIPS ARE always a difficult terrain to navigate.

As a woman, you spend hours pondering—alone or with your girl friends—the intricacies of the human heart. You always hope and pray that the next generation will get it better than you did.

Below is a letter I found in my daughter’s website (I have her permission to share this). She wrote it to “the man I will someday love.”

I was expecting to read a gushing, romantic, idealistic tome. I was humbled instead by her sentiments. It’s filled with sensible expectations.

I pray that this will make every girl believe that hope does spring eternal, and even if your heart has been broken a few times, you can always put the pieces back together, and make it right the next time around.

Take your time. Don’t rush and don’t just “settle.” If it’s part of His plan, God’s best awaits you out there.


Dear You,

I will admit that sometimes I really do wonder if you exist.

There is a part of every little girl’s heart that envisions her prince charming. At age three, it is usually of a man who can save her from the wrath of an evil stepmother, wake her from eternal slumber or give her that true love’s kiss.

In elementary school, he becomes the boy with the least cooties, the one who’s willing to cross the playground to share his Oreos even if it makes him a target for the week of all the other boys.

Come high school, it’s that boy you stand with at prom, who your father stared down at the door, who provided you with an experience complete with photos you will cringe at a decade later, a corsage that yellows in the refrigerator, and a faded memory of a night that seemed almost too magical to be real.

Nineteen years into this life, however, and still unwilling to give my heart away, I am still that same little girl who hopes for her prince charming. And although I wonder why it has taken you this long to sweep me off my feet and whisk me off to your palace on horseback, I know that it is probably because meeting you will be better than any fairytale I could’ve read as a kid.

A couple of heartbreaks and a few years wiser though, I will admit that there are times when I question your existence. Because I have yet to meet the guy who makes me hear songs like “All My Life” or “A Whole New World” in my head when I see him does not mean I don’t hope that it’ll ever happen.

I may already know you or may still meet you someday—something I leave completely up to God because I’m pretty sure our story will be epic.

However, I can’t promise you that I’d make the world’s most perfect princess. In fact I’ll probably keep you on your toes and amuse you with my eccentricities—there are a lot of them. I’ll probably steal a bunch of your T-shirts and turn them into shirt dresses, or drive you slightly mad with my obsessive compulsivity and my need to fix your collar constantly.

I can promise to be your best friend however—that person you can rant to after a rough day, the hand you can hold when you get sad, or the person you can text when situations get awkward.

I’ll probably mess up your hair sometimes and hug you for too long, but that’ll only be because I absolutely adore you. I’ll bury my head in your shoulder during scary movies and make you feel like superman when you kill those flying cockroaches that really shouldn’t exist. I’ll cook your favorite food on your birthday and try my best to make friends with your mom.

I’ll respect your nights-out with the boys and make you seem like the perfect guy to my barkada. I’ll watch basketball or soccer games with you, and not complain when you cheer too loudly at the TV set.

I’ll know the difference between giving you space and being constantly there for you—even if it means sitting and playing video games with you or taking hot chocolate runs when it rains.

I’ll listen to your music and we’ll go on epic adventures together—seeing the world, taking awesome pictures, eating awesome food, and never running out of things to tell each other along the way.

I won’t be waiting for you to sweep me off my feet and take me on a magic carpet ride, because I know I won’t need anything like that to fall for you—I will love you for you.

You will be that someone to make goofy faces with in pictures, to lace fingers with when I’m lonely, and to take long walks under the stars with on the beach.

You’ll be the guy who takes me the way I am—and will laugh as I burst into Disney song or pick out pink wallpaper.

You’ll be that someone I envision a future with—us filling out visa forms as we travel the universe, picking out our first dog together and arguing about what to name it, or being snap-happy stage parents in our preschooler’s annual mini-plays. And I keep hoping that maybe someday when we find each other, you will become that someone whose smile I wake up to in the morning and the last one I speak to every night.

So to the man I know does exist, and who will help me maybe make sense of the world someday, this man I can’t wait to love. Please know that I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you. But for now, I wait. Fingers crossed and palms held together, I hope that you’re out there somewhere, waiting for me, too.

With the hope I will be yours for always,

Now this is really Greekish. The setting, the people, the romance. So greekily romantic. The best places were captured and the scene was beautiful. Oh, no wonder I love Greece.

A synopsis I've read from google speaks :

Georgia (Nia Vardalos) came to Greece to follow a man. A few years later, she's been cast aside -- alone and adrift in a foreign land. Eventually, her passion for history leads her to a job as a tour guide. But Georgia is bored, and has lost her "kefi" (Greek for mojo) to boot. When taciturn sasquatch Poupi (Alexis Georgoulis) replaces the regular driver at the last minute, the frazzled tour guide thinks that her luck has just hit rock bottom. Thankfully, Georgia's latest batch of tourists is a more lively bunch than she's anticipated, and in between bouts with rival tour guide Nico (Alistair McGowan), she manages to form a genuine connection with wisecracking widower Irv (Richard Dreyfuss), a solo vacationer who maintains a jovial facade despite the fact that he misses his late wife dearly. With a little help from Irv, Georgia comes to realize that true love may be closer than she thinks -- if she could just recapture her kefi and open her eyes.

I can't help but fall in love with the movie. And all the more, I can't help but fall in love with Greece..=)
