Last April 29, husband and I went to explore Balinsasayaw Twin Lakes in Negros Oriental and I documented the journey by recording videos and made my first attempt to VLOG (video blog).
If you notice, I haven’t posted anything about it just yet here in my site. Lame. My laptop and Win Movie Maker ain’t just cooperating. GRRR! I am still trying to find other softwares I can use for my video editing.
However, please do check this playlist I created on YouTube about our Sibulan road trip on the way to our targert destination. Please find something interesting in them. #Begging LOL

What better way to celebrate mothers day than celebrating it for a good cause?
A pocket concert for a cause was held last May 11, 2014, Sunday, at TGI Fridays in Ayala Center Cebu with the help of Let It ECHO, Inc. together with other volunteers. The event aimed to raise awareness about CHD and raise funds for baby Ethan’s and baby Nico’s open heart surgery. Baby Ethan was diagnosed with Ventricular Septal Defect Subpulmonic while baby Nico was diagnosed with Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return (TAPVR) to Superior Vena Cava and both their families need to raise at least P1 million each for the open heart surgery expenses.

#HELP #SHARE #DONATE
I know I could only count in my fingers the times that we got along very well. At least when I was already growing up and already making my own decisions. We couldn’t agree on what clothes I should wear, which friends I should hang out with, what food to eat, which places to go, the way I should speak, even the course I should take up in college. There’s just a lot of things we couldn’t agree on and I just don’t know why. I was very jealous of my other friends who’s like barkada with their moms. I thought you didn’t want that kind of relationship. I thought you like me to be the follower and you be the dictator or some kind of like that. That’s what I think our relationship was. But maybe it wasn’t really like that at all.
When your friends praised me back then for being a consistent honor student, you shrug it off and say “ah basig karon ra pud nah taman.” (It wont last long.) I was hurt. I thought you weren’t proud of me so I worked harder as a student but you were hard to please. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe you were actually proud of me and just didn’t want to brag about it to avoid being labeled as boastful. I really don’t know. There’s so much that I don’t understand about you (because I didn’t ask) and there’s so much you don’t understand me (because I never told you). I’m sure there were times that you tried reaching out to me so we could understand each other but I withdrew myself and shut you out. There’s too many walls between us. Just when I was already ready to tell you and understand you, you have already created your own barrier. You were back to being stiff, or so I thought.
Despite all the disagreements we had and the fights we’ve put on, I’m still thankful because we’ve always had each other when we needed it the most. You were there when I was brokenhearted. You were there when I was disappointed with myself for failing an exam or for not getting the job I’ve applied for. You were there when I had no one else left to talk to. Maybe you were difficult. I was difficult too, for sure. Maybe I didn’t understand your ways of raising me but I know you did it all because you love me. You didn’t let me go on a field trip because you were too scared that the bus would get into an accident. You didn’t let me take MASSCOM because maybe you know that course would do me no good judging by the character that I have. You didn’t buy me new school supplies all the time because you want to teach me how to take care of my things and you want to teach me the value of money. You did not grant many of my requests, at least not right away but it is when I was already worthy and deserving of it. I hope you do realize that I learned so many things because of your do’s and don’t’s.
Ma, in spite of it all, I hope you are proud of yourself because you’ve done an amazing job at raising me and my brother. Thank you for everything you’ve endured just to give us the best. Thank you for being strong when we were scared and unsure of things. Thank you for being madiskarte in life, you’ve passed it on to me. Most of all, thank you for bringing us into this world. For sacrificing 9 months when we were in your womb. For risking your life in the operating room via CS section. For staying up at night because we wanted milk and you still looked down upon us with smiling face even you were too sleepy then. And for looking after us even until now that I have kids of my own already. Even if we don’t say it that often, I know we love each other, aminin! 😉 Ma, if not for you, I would never become the strong, independent, opinionated, loving, and affectionate woman that I am today. Thank you, I love you and I’ll see you very soon! HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
Napoles wants to be state witness – De Lima
Secretary Leila de Lima says the DOJ will have to evaluate the affidavit of Napoles to determine if she can become state witness.
MANILA, Philippines – Alleged pork barrel mastermind Janet Lim Napoles has finally agreed to “tell all” about the controversy and turn state witness, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said on Tuesday, April 22.
De Lima made the statement in an interview with ABS-CBN at the Ospital ng Makati after talking with Napoles, who is confined at the hospital and is due to undergo surgery to have a myoma removed from her uterus that night.
“She sent feelers before the Holy Week. She said she’s ready to speak up, she’s ready to tell all and would execute an affidavit. That’s why we took her statement now. I agreed to talk to her on those conditions that she should tell all she knows about the PDAF scam,” De Lima said.
