College Freshmen

Its School time once again and  my eldest son is now a sophomore and another son on his freshmen year and another son going to college next year. Yes all three of them will be in college soon and we will be empty nesters once again. But before i dwell on that, let me share with you the things needed for your freshmen to start a new life on his own.
Here,  i will be dealing more with the things that they need to pack. Most Freshmen live in the dorms. And knowing that they do not really know what they will be bringing. Its best that we guide them.I am not spoon feeding them but guiding them on how to do things properly for them to succeed in life.
First things first. Let them pack their own bags. Give them a list of the essential things that they need to bring. never, never pack their things. Let them do it.

Allow me to list them for you.

    • Pain Relievers
    • Cold & cough medications
    • Anti-allergy meds
    • Gauze and plaster ( Band-aid)
    • Alcohol

Things you need to buy before move in day:

  • Bedsheets ( usually dorm beds are Twin extra long beds), pillow cases, blanket, comforter, pillows and mattress protector
  • Hand, face and Bath towels
  • Soap, shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste, shower tote/caddy
  • Laundry basket/bag ( buy the twin pack one where you can separate the whites from the colored), Laundry soap, Fabric Softener and Fabric Softener Sheets
  • Plate, bowl, cup, spoon and fork
  • Microwavable  plates, paper plates, disposable spoons and forks and cups

I Give My All

bigger gift

Everytime i do something whether it be spiritual or just the ordinary household task, i give it my all. Always done the best that i can. For i believe that all the things we do here on earth is for God’s greater glory. Sometimes, we think its just a menial task but if we look at the bigger picture it means a lot.

So why not do something whether big or small – always do it with the best way you can.

In that way, you contribute to make this world a better place to live in.

Talents Revealed


I just finished my 50th painting. I am so happy i am able to paint on a canvass.

I am giving this painting to my Mom who requested that i give her again a newer painting than the one i gave her 7 years ago. Wow! its been 7 years. Who would imagine that i could paint. I didn’t even think that i can draw much more paint using oil as a medium on a canvass.

Indeed, there are things inside us that’s hidden and waiting to be revealed or be unfolded. Sometimes, people around us believe that we can do it. Sometimes, we are so shy or we never believe in ourselves.

When someone tells you that he/she believes in you. Affirm and believe for it is only in believing in ourselves that we can soar high and be the best that we can be.

How about you? Something is waiting to be uncovered. Reflect and pray for things that is unimaginable will be revealed.

Waiting for your inner talents to come out. Explore and believe!

The Future is Full of Hope

The Future is Full of Hope

While i was waiting for the mall to open, I was talking to the telephone operator at the Business Center of Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ortigas City.
I was so inspired by his life story that i told him i would write about him in my blog.
He is a man full of hope and dreams for a brighter future. A person that can inspire other people.
His name is Allen Ojera, and he is a recipient of Global Fund for Children. He is now working at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ortigas.
Allen, is a simple guy but full of hope. When he was a child he said he had to work in a sugar plantation to help out with the expenses of the family. Life was hard then, he hoped and prayed that life would become better. Then he came upon the Laura Vicuna foundation. This foundation taught him how to be a well rounded person. After graduation he landed a scholarship for a vocational course – dressmaking. He finished his course, but then a brighter future was given to him – that of working in the hotel industry in Manila. He was trained in all the departments in the hotel. He told himself that he will do his best in whatever department he was in and with his exemplary performance, the hotel hired him. And now, with his stable work he can now support his family in Negros Occidental. Life is good he says. For him, God first and family second.
I might not do justice to his story so allow me to share with you the link to his story.


I hope and pray with the story of Allen, I was able to inspire you to be the best in whatever circumstances you are in right now and for those who have more, may you have generous hearts to give. Because whatever help you give will surely go a long way.

If you know of success stories like Allen, let me know so that through this blog we may be able to touch other people’s hearts and minds.

Indeed our future is full of HOPE!
