Family Day

My mother in law visited us again. And we then decided to go to Star City.

We had the ride all you can tickets, pero di rin masyado nakapag rides si Seandy kasi mahaba ang mga pila.

He liked the bump car so much. Ayoko nga sana kasi I’m afraid. Feeling ko eh masasaktan siya pag binangga siya ng ibang kids.

I never really liked that. The last time I tried that I remember I was closing my eyes with my hands. How can I drive kung nakapikit ako. Di ko talaga maenjoy yun.

Ayoko nga sanang payagan si Seandy, pero sabi ni Daddy, okay lang daw yun, lagi niya akong sinasabihan ng super paranoid ko daw. Para daw lagi akong nasa “Final Destination” na everytime eh may masamang mangyayari.

Ganun talaga ang mga mommies di ba? Laging my na fo-foresee na possibleng may mangyari. Sabi ko nga it’s better to be safe than sorry.

We went inside din sa Snow World. It was cool! As in! Super cold sa loob. It’s at 15 degrees Celsius.

Kaya lang I was disappointed kasi the jackets were not that thick and it stinks!

You can have globes pero you have to buy it. You can’t take pictures din inside you have to ask their photographer to take your picture for 100 pesos or 150 pesos if you like it CD.

We went inside pero I think di man lang kami umabot ng 5 minutes. Sobrang lamig kasi. Di ko talaga kinaya. Sean and Seandy tried yung slide. Ako din ng slide pero accidentally. Kakatakbo ko, ayun I fell. Pero sa sobrang lamig (at kahihiyan na rin siguro) di ko naramdaman yung sakit. Nung pauwi na kami dun ko lang naramdaman ang sakit ng balakang at ng butt ko.

Nanay went to Dino Island with Uncle Ricky and Ganda, pero kami di na, Seandy was so afraid kasi. He loves dinosaurs naman.

I asked him kung bakit ayaw niya pumasok eh love naman niya ang dinosaurs, sabi ni “ Mommy, I like sa DVD lang.”

We went na lang sa Dino souvenir shop to look for the Dino toys. The Sales ladies inside naman were so fond of Seandy. They were asking him kasi kung ano ang mga names nung Dinosaurs.

Amazed naman sa kanya ang mga girls dahil sila nga daw eh di nila kilala ang mga paninda nila. Well, Seandy recognized the Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Pteranodon, T-rex, pero yung iba di na niya kilala. Yung iba name na lang ng characters ng Land before Time ang sinasabi niya.

We all had fun. Sobrang late na ng umuwi kami pagod na pagod kaming lahat. Pero it was worth it, sumasakit nga lang talaga ang katawan ko.

James 4:14

I went to church earlier and then head off to my office afterwards.

I was at the entrance of our building when I heard the Security guards talking about the Pacquiao - De la Hoya fight. It's good to hear that Manny won that fight.

While blog hopping I have noticed that some blogs already posted about the match, so I did not bother blogging about it.

But then, another news came up. I have heard from my officemate that a young tv star, Marky Cielo, Starstruck's Ultimate Male Survivor just died. The cause of his death is still unknown, but he was found dead on his bed. He was just 20 years old. I have seen him on TV before and I know he can act and dance very well. And how about the story of Leafil Alforque who was Swept to Sea During Proposal on Oregon Coast?

These news made me sad. It all tells us what life is all about. Just like what the scriptures says in James 4:14 :

"Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away."

Life is short. Let us all make a difference. Let us start seeking God and search the God that Is not the just the God that we want - before all is too late.

Blog Prayer Brigade

Thanks Mommy Elvz for tagging me for this.

Father God, our country needs restoration and we know that this should start from within. Lord, we ask for the revival of our country. And as we pray for this, we lift up to You the upcoming 2010 Presidential Election. May You guide all of us to choose the leader that seeks Your name above all. A leader with a heart that longs after You. We also pray for the candidates to set aside their own selfish desires. That they may only think of the welfare of our country. Lord, we know nothing is impossible to You.

I, Melody support the cause of the Blog Prayer Brigade for the election of the Future President of the Republic of the Philippines and I do solemnly promise to recite the prayer, which I wrote, in my own convenient time and regularly as possible until the 2010 Presidential Election commences. Let it be written, let it be done.


Copy these rules including the logo above and paste in on your blog as is:

1. Write a short, sincere and meaningful prayer, (in your own words and according to the customs of your religious affiliation) about asking God in guiding our country and fellowmen in choosing the right candidate to vote for in the coming 2010 Philippine Presidential Elections. It can be in your own vernacular, and can be short and long as you please.Remember, the goal of the prayer is not only for Peaceful Election but most of all “for the guidance of choosing the right Presidential candidate to vote in the election”

2. Publish the prayer for everyone to Read in your blog.

3. Go to the Blog Prayer Brigade Main Page which is located here, and get one of the badges or banners for the brigade. Place the badge or banner in your Sidebar until the 2010 Presidential Elections commence.

Let it be written, let it be done.

5. Tag at least 7 Pinoy bloggers you know who haven’t done this before so that the prayer will spread wherever there is a pinoy blogger present.

6. Keep you promise of praying for the Presidential Election so that God may guide us in choosing the right leader for our country.

7. in January 2010, we will gather all the names and prayers of each participants and publish all their prayers in one Blog. We will also feature in the blog the most beautiful prayer ever composed in this project.
