All-Around "Jelly"

I first heard the term "windburn" back in high school, I was 14 then. My clueless self, "how exactly does a wind burn?" hahaha. Until an older friend told me that it is the sore and dry feeling in your lips especially when the weather gets cold or cooler. Actually, it was the "ber" months that time and I was having a bad case of chapped lips. My friend shared her "petroleum jelly", it was an imported brand and how I love the comfort it brought to my sore lips. So I told my mom but she could not find it in our usual drugstore. Perhaps it can only be bought in a specialty store because it's imported. Oh, the frustration! So the solution my mom gave me, a lip balm. Well, I liked it at first, but it does not give me the same satisfaction as that of a petroleum jelly. "Parang hindi long lasting ang effect", so I observed.

One Fine Monday

Good morning, Monday!

Today's agenda, bring my son to school and wait for him till his class is finished. Whew! It's a 3-hour wait. "Ay! Parang matagal 'ata yon ah"?!

Off to school we go. To pass time, I decided to bring my ever reliable netbook and a fave book. Yay! I won't get bored any more. There's a newly opened coffee shop close to my son's school and I'm thinking I could check it out while waiting for him.

Welcome, 2012!

The year 2011 have been full of challenges; some were easy while others really require extra effort. As we bid goodbye and welcome a new chapter, our unending gratitude to God's grace and blessing. God is not just good because HE is GREAT, all the time.

The Universal Prayer

Attributed to Pope Clement XI (23 July 1649 – 19 March 1721)

I came across this post from and find it really interesting and very meaningful. With all the hustle and bustle in our lives, let us not forget to take the time to pause and just be thankful for whatever we have.
