Behind the Black


Color Meaning Black Roses

New Beginnings, Rebirth

Sometimes the darkest red roses are called 'black roses' and while they do symbolize the death of an idea or say farewell they can send a positive message of rebirth and new beginnings.

One of my favorite color is black, and I found black roses to be unique and undefined in its true meaning. As black roses may look negative because of its color, the symbolism of its color is true.

As for every goodbye, and lost of something... there is regaining and moving on. For flowers are blossom of hope and beauty, their colors functions as their other power.

You Are Green Lights

Your holidays are a time of rest and solace.

You take time to reflect on the year that's passed.

You also enjoy connecting with friends and family you've lost touch with.

The holidays are your opportunity to remember what's important in your life.

I love what it says about me. Gotcha! It made me amazed. It is true that I often reflects about everything in my life. Try this for yourself... indeed, fabulous!


This is Scootie! My scooter.

As my father had his motorcycle, I on the other side had my scooter. Before it was in color red, but it was repainted in dark blue, and for me it looked nicer!

I value this scooter of mine, although in our town, new model motorcycle, shinier and in posh, I will never let my scooter be exchanged.

This is my "service" vehicle when I'm going to our shop in the market everyday. I'm in duty of taking over assistance and handing some works in our computer shop, and working is attached with learning indeed.

Our New Motorcycle


How glad we are... when our father bought a new motorcycle. Actually it was in an installment payment, but affordable!

This motorcycle will be our "service vehicle". As my father said, it will be used to bring us our respective schools. My youngest sister in her elementary school, my sister who is the third among us, currently in high school... and last but not the least, I and the second among us, in the jeep terminal... it is because our school in college was indeed far from our hometown and we need to ride a jeepney to go there.

Every day, this motorcycle work to serve us. My father also use this as his "service vehicle" to go to our shop in the market. It was an "internet cafe".

Before our motorcycle go on with it duty, it was finely cleaned by my father to make it look shinier and always "new" to everyone's eyes. Indeed, it was in a great care of my father and us too.


I love arranging and cleaning our "home" everytime I have the opportunity. .. (: Yesterday, I beautify our home, especially the living room, also because Christmas is near, and visitors will be coming to us.

Indeed, I appreciated its result. My being tired was blown away when I see how great was having a clean and beautiful home. This is only a "simple" achievement, yet a great fact of contentment in life and appreciation of a simple life.

Laundry at Weekend!

Ready, get set, go!

It's a weekend laundry marathon!

Why it's marathon? It is because our laundry had stocked. We didn't be able to have our laundry earlier because we're busy, so it took some days before we do it, as a lump sum work! Its tiring but we enjoyed working together.

At the picture, is my sisters. At the left is my sibling younger than me, she was the second among us. At the right is my youngest sister. The're enjoy working together isn't it? Wondering where am I there? I'm the photographer at that time! :)

My Treasure

I love music!

This instrument was one of my dreams before. And it was before Christmas of 2007 that my uncle bought me this musical keyboard. That moment, my happiness was immeasurable. Now, I sometimes play my favorite songs in it. It is because, I often had busy schedule and it is because I prioritize my study at a great extent... :) During my free times, I let myself play my keyboard, relax and calm. I found peace everytime my hand plays my music. This is one my treasure, not physically a gold or a gem, but inside is a very precious dream.

A Weak Warrior


Once I dreamt to be warrior. An ambitious and unrealistic dream of a fellow... Since when I was a child until now, I love anime and fantasy warriors. I love watching them in movies, looking them in posters and others. A strong woman warrior who is fighting for right and restoring a stolen peace. A graceful warrior, an ordinary person who at a time of need transforming in an immortal.

What a fantasy! A usual story of an anime series, comic or movie. But this dream was still in my lists. It never vanish. Even its possibility of bein' real is not absolute, in my imagination it is "always" possible.

I know, one time in my life, before everything will end... I, yes I am... I will be a warrior. A warrior for my family... a warrior for my countrymen... a warrior for the poor... a warrior of love and equality. I do not dreamt of a hero, I just dreamt of a fighter... not knowm by many, but known by few. I may not be wearing a metallic costume with coat or sword... and my only weapon is my faith and principle.

I do not want to be politician to fight and promise to people anything... I just planned that when I have my opportunity and power, I will help Philippines, my country. For behind the image of this country seen by negotiators and businesspeople... a world of unequality is unseen.

For now, I am weak. I do not have enough strength and armor to sustain the need of my fight. I easily lose. But, time once said to me that, "I will have my powers and resources, if my fight begin."

Man does not Live by Bread Alone


What is it that makes a person live? Is it simply food, the physical nutrition and the digestion process?

Man does not live by bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Meaning, physical nourishment is not sufficient for a healthy life, men also have spiritual needs.

If our body and soul are complements, therefore we must feed both for us to live and function. Our body may function in a healthy condition as we feed it by the foods we eat, but how about our soul? And what is that food for our soul? It is the “word of God”, interpreted in the creations, scriptures and teachings of the church.

These spiritual things became our spiritual needs, because abiding in God’s love lead us to live peacefully, happily and everlastingly, teach us what we must learn in this so-called life and give us strength and courage to do our duties as humans on how to improve our living… and this is the purpose of God’s words. As our life is a gift from God, and what we do with that life is our gift to God.

Love is Blind


Why does there is a expression “love is blind”? Isn’t it that it is one of the most common and also the most popular expression of love? One time, I’m always thinking about the situation of lovers ignoring certain negative characteristics of one another, which is the most common illustration of how love becomes blind.

I tried to apply it in my own life, not be being in love with a special man but more specifically to my family. I love my family so much that I cannot see such things that we lack in other families. I love them for what hey are most especially in they own way of how family is being defined. It is the matter of loving them not by seeing but by feeling

There’s no need to prove if love is really blind. Why? Beside that science has proven it, it is simply because it will not be known and accepted by most people if it is not happening and if it is not proven. Therefore, love is blind because it happens.

Seeing is Believing


Do you believe everything that you see? Does what you see is enough for you to believe?

“We believe whatever we want to believe” as Demosthenes said. Thus seeing is believing if it is a man’s choice that he will not believe unless he will see it. Another is that, it can be appropriate if seeing is the last option remaining for you to believe what’s in a doubt.

It is in a case to case basis that we affirm or we deny it. Why does we believe that there’s wind? Why does we believe in God even these two cannot be seen. It is because there is the so-called faith in us.

If “seeing is believing”, it doesn’t mean a command or a law that all things must follow. Yes, we may believe whatever we see; it may be enough but may also be not enough. Thus seeing is believing indeed, but seeing is not “always” believing because it depends.

Our eyes given the capacity to see pictures, happenings and details help us gain evidences not for “what” we must believe, but the things is “which” we must believe. Our eyes are only one of the agents of our mind through believing. We must bear in mind that the eyes cannot perceive everything we must believe.

Do You Have an Empty Well?


When the Well Goes Dry

So many times my well is dry - I can't count.
This is how I refill it. By the Love of My Father.

Sometimes we feel empty with nothing left inside.
We try numerous things to keep our sanity and pride.
We try buying trinkets’ that bring us joy for awhile.
But it never last for long and neither do the smiles.

Then we try a drink or two, only deadening us for a time.
So we try many other things that used to fit us fine.
But nothing seems to help when our well inside goes dry.
We are filled with emptiness with a heart that only cries.

I don’t know what you do then, but I go down on my knees.
And ask God to refill my well and ask for his reprieves.
He holds me in HIS arms and fills the depth of me.
So I again can give to others to help with their pleas.

Fill that well with the love of God and you will make it through.
You’ll bring many others with you; it’s what we’re told to do.
Get on your knees and pray to him and fill your empty well.
Your untold strength will be renewed, much more than I can tell.

Did you know...?

TUGUEGARAO CITY - A five-petal flower, believed to be the only one of its kind in the world and endemic to this province's rainforest, was unveiled here earlier this week.
Without roots, stems or leaves, the flower, named Rafflesia leonardi, was discovered last May by a multi-sectoral group with the aid of Agta tribesmen at the remote Sitio Kinapawan in coastal Lallo town, three hours from this bustling northernmost capital.

But the flower's formal unveiling, according to Perla Visorro, president of the Cagayan Valley Partners in People Development (Cavapped), was only made Monday after almost six months of laboratory studies and research by local and international botanists to further determine and prove its rarity.

The flower, which takes nine to 10 months to fully bloom but starts to wilt after around seven days, was named after Filipino botanist Leonardo Co of Conservation International, who confirmed it as a new species of Rafflesia five months after the flower's discovery.

The flower, which is around 1.5 meters in diameter and only thrives in the rainforest here, was discovered some 300-700 meters above sea level within the Kinapawan forest of the Sierra Madre mountain range.

Visorro said the new species, whose features are similar to R. lobata and R. manillana, was the fourth Rafflesia species found in Luzon and eighth all over the country.

However, among the world's Rafflesia species, the Rafflesia leonardi is the only one with a diaphragm.
I think that this flower is very pretty. Isn't it nice that this rare flower can only be found in the Philippines? I would like to see one myself and eventually plant one in our garden. Wouldn't it be nice?

everybody, but me...


This was taken during my sisters recogniton day; with them was my cousin, Jacob who visited us from Texas. These are my sister: Maurren, Camille and Ara. I don't have any Idea where was I when yhey took this picture; I just wished I was there. Oh well, that's ok. I am sure wherever I was that time am sure I was out doing something important.

Amazing, they got it right!

Awesome! I love to play chess since my grandfather thought me how to play it. It is a great game for me. For me knowing chess and any other board game is like one holding an asset or a virtue to be proud of.

El Misterio de mi Pintura

The Mystery of my Painting

What is mystery? In simpler terms, it is a secrecy, an unknown...

One time, I've tried to make a masterpiece... I'm very enthusiastic to make a painting. I put my art materials in my study table, my water color and a recycled cardboard.

I started to hold my brush, touched it in color brown in which it will draw the bark of a tree. Actually I do not use pencil, just water color instead without any knowledge how to paint. :)

My first piece is a tree beside a rice field, which pictures a simple and peaceful place in our province in which I live. The picture here, is my second painting, entitled "Alone". Actually this one is my most-loved painting of mine. I was surprised when I finished this painting, I can't imagine that I did it!

Until now, the meaning of this painting is a MYSTERY, even for me. What is known is only my faith. And for what is unknown is what other things pushed my hand to made it... of what I think at that time and what I feel, which form the image of my piece.

Being Simple...


Being simple in life,

...makes things less complicated... what you do or say and even what you wear, makes you feel confident and feel less of comments and objections around many people.

...does't make you out of fashion, simplicity is always IN FASHION! not stressful or demanding. No pressure!

...keeps you feel comfortable and intensely cool otherwise.

...helps things easy to carry and be fixed.

...and always BEAUTIFUL.
