New Year's Prayer

Dear Lord, as I close the door on this old year,
I ponder on the things I've done...
on the things I've said and the joys I've had...
then I wonder, have I lost or won?

I've thought of the new friends I have made,
and of the old ones staunch and true...
the path of the old year was made easier Lord,
because I have walked it with You.

I think of all the many times,
when my burdens were so heavy to bear,
and how my faith slipped away from me...
but somehow You were always standing there.

Now as I open the door to this New Year,
and carefully peep inside,
I wonder what it holds for me...
but I'll throw the door open wide

And whatever it brings to me and mine,
I'll meet it with a heart so true...
I know that, Lord whate'er it may be
You'll be there to carry me through.

By Mrs. Merrel Thompson


This Was My Year! - I am so blessed to have such great friends and family. Happy New Year!


New year's resolutions were not invented 2000 years ago to simply create a tradition, but CHANGE. Now ask yourself, has anything significant changed? Instead of making a long list of plans and "resolutions", make a commitment to act on it. Plans will only remain as plans, resolutions as resolutions. Happy new year everyone!!

"Fallin' For You"


Fallin for you
Colbie Caillat












I don’t know but
I think i maybe
Fallin’ for you
Dropping so quickly
Maybe i should
Keep this to myself
Waiting ’til i
Know you better

I am trying
Not to tell you
But i want to
I’m scared of what you’ll say
So i’m hiding what i’m feeling
But i’m tired of
Holding this inside my head

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know where to
I think i’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
And now i found ya
I don’t know where to
I think i’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you

As i’m standing here
And you hold my hand
Pull me towards you
And we start to dance
All around us
I see nobody
Here in silence
It’s just you and me

I’m trying
Not to tell you
But i want to
I’m scared of what you’ll say
So i’m hiding what i’m feeling
But i’m tired of
Holding this inside my head

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know where to
I think i’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
And now i found ya
I don’t know where to
I think i’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you

Oh i just can’t take it
My heart is racing
The emotions keep spinning out

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know where to
I think i’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
And now i found ya
I don’t know where to
I think i’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you
I think i’m fallin’ for you

I can’t stop thinking about it
I want you all around me
And now i just can’t hide it
I think i’m fallin’ for you (x2)

I’m fallin’ for you

Ooohhh
Oh no no
Oooooohhh
Oh i’m fallin’ for you

Bridal Shower -- 09.05.09

I never thought I'd be having a bridal shower.

After visiting the themesandmotifs bridal fair (previous album), Roby told me that we should "pass by a friend's place" before calling it a day. She said that it had something to do with the wedding. I was told to drive by Amber Golden Plate Restaurant at Filmore where she picked up some food to bring her "friend". It actually looked quite fishy that Roby got a LOT of food. There was pancit, barbecue, and that yummy pichi-pichi. Now I started to get hungry and asked if it's really okay to eat at her "friend's place". It should be fine she said.


Of course, nahiya naman ako and thought "Okay lang kaya yon?" not suspecting a thing at all yet, we headed off to Astoria Plaza.

Total surprise.

It was Charm who opened the door. Katie, Mye and Cha were already inside! Like OMG! While waiting for others, we showed them our loot bags from the Bridal Fair, including those wacky photobooth sessions.

The arrival of other guests soon got the party starting as to wonderful food from Amber's were there. A party ain't a party without the flowing booze! How I missed drinking!



Bridal shower parties would not be complete without games and more surprises! We first had the relay which involves a lotion, a cucumber and a condom (see a visual?).



Next, there was this "How well do you know Dave and Shelley game" participated by Qtie, Raunche and Renchie Lou. The questions asked were insane and probably rated PG so answers and questions won't be revealed here (lol). It eventually turned into "How well do you know Dave" as the questions all had to do with him!



After Renchie had won the quizzie, we had another game where we 3 teams need to design a bridal gown using only tissue paper. Riot as my team was running out of ideas. Even if Raunche was supposedly on the queer side, he said he wasn't "blessed" with kalandian skills. So we lost (haha!).



A bridal shower wouldn't be called such if there wouldn't be a dancer! Oh, yes, dancer. There was dancing for a while, and then it ended up with a kwentuhan instead as the dancer was incredibly too young to molest (joke!). He is actually Daddy Monchie's "friend" (thanks dad! :D).

The night ended up in giving away souvenirs and gifts. Thanks to all the wonderful people who gave their best wishes before calling it a night!



In short, the bridal shower was a night that I will never truly forget not because of what happened during the event, but to the people who were present to give me a send-off before entering married life. Even if I were to get married a month later, I am really thankful and touched to feel extra special before my special day. Thanks girls! :D
