Pray For Kumamoto

FYI, Life must go on

A deadly earthquake struck the Southern part of Japan on Thursday evening. Hundreds of aftershocks have taken place in the past few days. One of which happened yesterday at around 1:30 in the morning. The said aftershock destroyed many houses and killed many people in Kumamoto prefecture. Let’s pray for them and the on-going rescue operations in the area.

Life can be unfair sometimes

Life must go on, Travel

As a travel blogger, I always bring my camera wherever I go.
I believe that everything I see on my way has a story to tell, and I don’t want to lose my opportunity to capture that moment.

Below is the photo of a homeless kid I met in Manila a couple of months ago. He lives under the bridge, and he doesn’t go to school. He is just depending on something he could get from selling snacks on the street of Makati. He struggles to survive, yet he remains hopeful that one day his life would change.

A happy father

God is love, Life must go on

When I was a kid, my father and I had no enough time to play, talk, dance or sing together because of the circumstances that pushed us to live apart. Now, I just wish I could be born again so I could, somehow, enjoy my life as a kid. But I know it’s not going to happen.

So, now that I am already a father, all I want to do is to give my kid quality time. I believe that as a kid, he needs time to play, talk, dance and sing with me.

We will definitely cherish these moments someday.

Strive to survive

Life must go on

The world may look like this 30 years from now. People would struggle for foods to survive.  

I might be too pessimistic, but based on the results of some studies, the world may run out of foods in the near future. A report published by CNBC in October 2014 says that we may not have enough food by 2050 due to the rapid increase of the world population and decrease in food production.

FYI, Life must go on
March 11, 2:46 pm, Japan time.
The whole country observed a moment of silence to remember the people who have been killed by the tsunami on March 11, 2011. Everywhere, from Hokkaido to Okinawa, was so quiet. We could only hear the sound of the emergency siren from afar.
I hope and pray that God will protect Japan and the world. I pray that no quake and tsunami would ever happen again everywhere.

My 35th Birthday

God is love, Life must go on

Thanks God!  

 

The birthday greetings I’ve received on my Facebook wall overwhelmed me. You truly made my  birthday memorable. I really, really appreciate your love and care. It’s just wonderful.

I just realized that distance, racecolors and religious beliefs do not separate us at all. And I really thank God for that. How I wish the world is peaceful and connected, just like our friendship.

You, my family and friends, are the best gift I’ve ever received from God. 

3 most important events in our lifetime

Life must go on
37324_1322387706064_3688380_n

Our life is full of important and memorable events, but there are only 3 events that we genuinely treasure the most.

Birthday

This is the day that our relatives, neighbors, family, and friends come to our house/hospital to see us for the first time.They are just so excited. Everybody wants to see us, know how big or great we are, see what our color is and so on. Try to ask your mom, maybe she can tell you more about the people who have visited you on your first day here on earth.

Wedding day

No one wishes to overlook this very important event. Everybody knows that this event is special, and it will never happen again, unless, we divorce and marry another woman. On our wedding day, most of the people are definitely waiting for the minister to say, “You may now kiss the bride”. Do you think so? The good thing here is, everyone comes over with a gift and wishes intended just for the bride and the groom. Just like the day of our birth, people come, take photos and post them on Twitter and Facebook.

Funeral

Life usually comes and goes like feathers in the wind. We’re now on the last page, it’s time to say goodbye to everyone, time to leave our happy and wonderful experiences here on earth. We are going to lay down breathless. This is now the closing ceremony of our long journey here on earth. So what happens? Most of our friends and loved ones would rather come to say goodbye and get a last glimpse of us before we finally go 6 feet under the ground. Some people may start weeping. However, we cannot hear their lamentations and all the good words delivered by our brothers in their eulogy. At least, on the day of our funeral, people remember all the good deeds we have done here on earth.

Life is so short. It’s like a flower, it can die and fade at any time.

Nothing is more certain than death. Ironically, many of us don’t really prepare for it.
