What's your dog like?






Each dog is different. Some dogs playful, some grumpy, some sweet, some aggressive. My Dopey is different. She is bubbly and charming. I thought I would never like a dog that has tons of energy to spare. I thought I would like a dog that would just cuddle. But I like Dopey the way she is. I like the way she woof in the morning. I like it when every time I come home from work she'd give me the "carry-me" look. Well, that's my Dopey. What's your dog like?

Hobbes and Landes PAWtogenic Pet Photo Contest


Just couple of weeks ago I told Anna that I want to join to a pet photo contest because of the gorgeous pictures of Dopey. And now, Dopey is officially a participant of a photo contest by Hobbes and Landes! The picture above are the entries. It wasn't easy to get many votes but I am thankful to friends who are very supportive and I felt very proud as a mom of Dopey every time people would compliment her. Today ends the voting and my baby ranked 4th. Eventhough she didn't make it to the top 3, I still hope that she gets the chance to be among the 12 winners by judging. And did I say that I am so excited for the awarding event on Sunday? My camera is very much ready on that day. Oh my, I can't wait to see all the other dogs and find them really cute and enjoying their time together. Dopey will have a grand time for sure. :)

Getting Cheesy


I'm quite in a cheesy mood. Do you still remember that feeling when you first realized that the person you really love feels the same for you? Remember that wonderful tensed feeling, breathless at every time you would see that person and very much anxious. Haaaay. 'Cause I do now. For some reason I just remembered those times when I'm so clueless if he feels the same but desperately hoping against hope that he does. And that relief when he finally gave up denying his feelings and admitted that he loves me back. The first date, the first holding hands, the first straight tender look at me. Oh my.. yeah.. I am really so cheesy today.

Never been the same since Dopey.


I lead a busy life. I love my work so I work hard. I love my Anna so I spend time with him. I love my ministry so 50% of my weekend is committed on church activities. I don't complain. As much as I don't want to admit it, but sometimes I get bored with the already busy life I have. I have achieved most of my goals - my own house, my siblings have graduated - (and yeah I can read your mind telling me that to build my own family is the next thing for me) but it doesn't feel that great to achieve all of it and not have new ones. Building your own family is not a single decision so I'm not going to pressure myself on that.

Then Dopey came.

And my life got colors in it instantly. I am so thankful that my mother (we call her granny now because of Dopey) loves Dopey. And my sister are all so supportive in looking after Dopey. She's a baby in our home and I love her so much. Although it's not all cute ok. The first 2 weeks is a pain. Poops everywhere, the house stinks and sometime that week she was vomiting all over the place that I had to rush her to the vet. I felt that those experiences made me a better person, more responsible and more caring. In a way, I feel confident that I have that motherly-nurturing trait. It is just so remarkable to realize that I have this much love in me which didn't know before until my Dopey came.

My first adopted baby.

I never considered myself a lover for pets. I do find dogs, specially puppies, cute but I don't see myself responsible enough take care of them. I never thought I would have my own dog until I met this beagle on our Baguio trip couple of months back.

This dog is one feisty dog. Keeps on barking whenever we pass by. But, the more this beagle paid attention to me the more I find him/her adorable. The beagle's kind eyes and long ears got me. So 2 weeks after coming back to Manila, I looked and looked for beagle puppies -- only to look. But, the moment I laid my eyes on Dopey, I just knew that she's mine. Only took me 2 mins. to decide. Dopey is perfect for me.


So now, I am officially a pet lover.

Work in Progress

This blog is a work in progress.  I am moving some of my not so personal post from my other blog to here.

It makes me feel really nervous sharing myself to the world.  But I'd like to give it a try.  It can be liberating.

I hope so.  :)

Trying to write a personal testimony.

I'm trying to write a personal testimony and I thought it should come as a breeze to me but it wasn't really easy.  It is also a serious matter that I should consider also when and where to write it.  I'm right here in the office, doing nothing and so I thought what a perfect timing to start drafting my personal testimony however the mood isn't just right.  And whenever a momentum starts kickin' that's when somebody would ask me a technical question... *sigh*



I sure know that personal testimony is a personal note of experience as one draws near to Christ.  And while I understand that each Christian has its own account on how their lives were changed after knowing Christ, I didn't realized how useful having a well thought personal testimony is until I googled "personal testimony".   On one <a href="">site</a> that checked, it says that personal testimony is a very good tool on sharing the gospel to others.  And well come to think of it, how could anyone possibly convince about Christ if anyone will just present it based on idea (what the Bible says) and not on his own experience.

So anyway, I hope I find the right words to describe what happened (or what changed) after I've known Christ.  Jesus is simply remarkable and marvelous in my life that I can't stop loving him.  I've made a vow to serve him for the rest of my life.

Gotta get back to work.. email are piling up..LOL
