It’s been awhile…

Hello guys…

It’s been five months since I wrote my last entry on my blog. It was so sad that I haven’t updated my blog for a long time. I had a lot of things that has to be done and maybe this would a good start for my blog to taking care of. I have to write something…again…

I’m away with my family(since I got my new  job and get assigned to a distant place. It seems like I want to resign and take something else to be work on. But on the contrary, I don’t think any good reasons on why should I resign. I had a good work (payable), I’m contented with it. Maybe it is just I’m away with my family and it’s not easy to be far and away with them. Right?

For my long stay here in MATI, DAVAO ORIENTAL, I could say that I truly missed my family way back home. I missed them around and do the things I usually do when I’m with them. But then, I have found friends here. They’ve been the relief of my misery on missing my family. Since we have all the same situation.

It would be difficult for me to manage to work away from them, but since that I want to learn all the things and explore what the world is it would be a relief if we have a so called — friend.

I will be celebrating my five months on October 10, more patience and hard work to be done.

See you guys next on my next entry. I will be going to write about my friends here.

I am here: Mati City, Davao Oriental

My friends… I am here in Mati City, Davao Oriental, Mindanao, Philippines, South East Asia, Earth.

As I was talking on my last post that I will be moving again to another place…maybe I should say that… I was moved and been to another location again. Ho! It has been getting any longer to travel from my home (Davao City, Davao del Sur) than it was like before when I was in Tagum City.

I’ve been here last May 04, 2009. It takes more or less five (5) hours of travel from Davao City to Mati City. It’s been a long travel that’s why I haven’t got an idea to take some pictures on my way (aside that I wasn’t be able to have my cam with me) for the reasons that I was sleepy on a long travel. I slept. Hahahahhah!

When I’m on my way, I was be able to visualized the place. On what is Mati City look alike. I had been heard that the place has a lot of beaches and had a nice spots to unwind. I was excited and nervous at the same time. It is my first time to go to the place and work. Good luck to me.

For more than two weeks in Mati, the words that I can only say is adventure and challenge. Why?…uhm, for a week I be able on getting to know the place and the people. The place was on its hottest spots. Aside that its economy is exceeding, Govenment also want to promote the place and to invite investors to do business in the virgin white sand beaches of Mati. Yes! Beaches… Mati City has on its way to be proud of. The City had a lots of virgin beaches to explore on and I tried it.

I have been to Gregorio Beach Resort and *Masao Beach. It was a great experience and totally different aura of  what Masao is. Indeed, Mati is the best-kept secret of Davao Region.

I had taken a nice look of thier captivating spot which they say the sleeping dinosaur in *Pujada Island. Truly fascinating!… I wonder if it is truly a dino sleeping. shhh….it might wake up!

There are a lot of places in Mati that are truly haven. They say that Dahican is one of the most popular destinations in Mati with clear waters and had a 17-kilometer pure and fine white sand shore. I will surely say that Dahican would be the next place I want to explore. See you soon Dahican.

Truly Mati is a place worth to be discover. I am here, got challenged…now I explore.

Memories of Tagum

For more than three months in Tagum City, I should say that I had a beautiful time exploring the place. Meeting people in Tagum where the best thing I will surely treasure when I’m away in the city.

In these last few days I have this terrible feeling that I will be moving away in the city. Aside that I was informed, it took a lot of time fo me to decide whether I should leave or stay. It was a very difficult time to decide. I haven’t yet be able to explore more to the city but now, I will be moving on….again.

Only in Tagum

There are several things that I would like to share what Tagum City is. Aside from its nice and wonderful place of business and pleasure. I should surely say and confessed that Tagum had a good appetite in terms of food. As I noticed, Only here in Tagum that you will be able to buy a piece of pork barbeque for only one (1) peso. Imagine that!?! For just a single peso you would be able to eat and had lunch or dinner. Good for the people who were trying to be thrifty. Nice!

Aside from that, only in Tagum City that after 6 o’clock those several streets where being closed and night market where just around the corner. Lots of goods and things where selling (shoes, slippers, bags, dress, etc.). In the local terms, we called it “ukay-ukay”. I exprienced this things. For me, this is inexpensive yet very tiring because in order to have some clothes or things in a low cost you will going to tumble, mixed, juggled, turned yourself in finding some things you want. Ho!…I’m so tired of it!…yet exciting!

People and Place

When I’m in Tagum, I should say eventhough I had lived for just a couple of months, I should say that Tagum is just like any other place here in the Philippines. It is just like Manila, Cebu, Davao or even an old folk place in the other side of the earth. Tagum has its originality on its own.

My peers and companions were very entertaining. We have been separated by our different places where we came from but we are bonded and connected by the place and the ambiance  of good relationship. People in Tagum, especially my officemates and colleagues is whom I miss the most when I’m away.

Last Words

Thank you for the good memories. I will treasure and surely missed the Tagum City.

Things I don’t even noticed

Last week, I went back home to see my family. Since it was my day off in work, I grab the opportunity to spend my whole day at home.

It was a nice and wonderful Saturday morning. More than anything else, I experienced the cup of coffee and pieces of cookies early in the morning. As I look around the place, I have just noticed that this is still the home I still want to be with. I remember that I still have worked my daily routine in the house when I’m there.  sakura1

Very much surprising that baby Ruber was weighted more than the last visit when I came. He is getting to his toddy any moment from now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also checked if happy is okay and we do some walking when my mom said that he is not feeling well last few days. I feel so delighted when he saw me home.

 It was a relief on my part that he’s okay now and still managed to entertain me and my family as well. He is our bodyguard and a stress reliever. Thank you Happy! Muah!

 

 

 

 

 

 

As I look outside the window, I saw my mom. She is taking an early visit to her plants. Since then, my mom loves plants. She likes the flowers glowing in and saw it in different colors and figures. No wonder why I also loved plants. I guess so…Ha!ha!ha! sakura4

 

 

 I spent my day off a fun one. I know that it would be busy days again when I return to work, but I still manage to laugh and not to worry because I know that my family will be fine and they are going to be fine in God’s guidance.

 

 

 

Words I’ve poundered

Things you need to know but I’m telling…

è    all shrimp are born female, but turns to male as time goes.

è    Starfishes are pretty but they don’t have brains, so be offended if someone calls you one.

è    Penguins can only have one mate; they spend almost half of their life looking for their destined partner, and then spend the rest of it with him/her.

How sweet is that? I don’t know if you find those amusing?

But I do and I hope you find your penguin.

Choose to be gentle than forceful. If you have to raise your voice, let it only in praise; if you have to clench your fist, let it only be in ardent prayer; and when you make demands, let it only be on yourself. Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. Focus on making things better not bigger. Live within your means and delight in simple things.

         The true essence of friendship –

There’s no place like home

Since when I started my work at the new place. I only got one day ticket a week to go back home. I had my day-off during Saturday, so I had a one day chance to go back home. It was a mixed emotions. I haven’t know if I will feel happy because I’m going back home or be lonely because I will be leaving my family by the next day. But then, I tried myself to enjoy my family’s companion. I’d rather spend my whole day with them. Even though  I’m with my two  more months  working  far away from them still I see to it that even for just a day I’ll go back home to see my family.  I managed to  go back  in forth  although it’s difficult for me.  Still I enjoyed myself  working  having the kind nature of work.

I still want my pillows all over my bed. I still missed my morning cup of coffee and some cookies. I still need the 2 hours bath and remedy inside the bathroom. I still want to cuddle happy and the rest of the gang. I still want to do some things that I usually do when I’m home. All mentioned and even none is still I want to linger when I’m home. There’s no other place like home.

That’s why, even though I spent nowadays working away from home and staying in a rented house, still I managed to think and missed the place where I wanted to go every end of the day. The place where I was since when I’m young where I belong. My home my family.

I’d missed the place and the home when I’m away with my work. Nah….drama!

What’s in education?

The education might be likened to an exciting and challenging journey. It is a journey that you and others make together. You give them encouragement and lovingly provide guidance helping them to progress along the path of life. There is so much for us to learn.

To be truly successful and happy in life, I believe that children must develop moral and spiritual values, learning to distinguish right from wrong. As a parent you will play a major role in what your children learn and how they value and interpret what they learn. There are challenges to be met on this journey. Children are impressionable and from sources outside the family, they can learn many thing that are far from wholesome. As what Satan is a skillful and very experienced educator- but a wicked one indeed. An important step is to take a close look at yourself. You need to set a good example. It is also vital that you accept your responsibility to train your children and take the time needed to do so. Before we consider these points however let us identify the foundation of worthwhile education. The deep understanding of human nature was divinely inspired to point to the foundation of true education. We will be laying the foundation for an education that will make our offspring truly wise. This will help us to put what they learn into proper perspective, not drawing wrong conclusions. They will develop the ability to distinguish both right and wrong. Such a foundation will also help them to remain humble and to avoid what is bad.

Because you are the primary teacher of your children. What they learn from your example will have a profound effect on them. And nothing exerts more influence on a child’s life than parental example. Your dreams ideas values, and interests manifest themselves not only in what you say but also in what you do. From infancy, children learn by carefully observing their parents. Children perceive what is important to their parents and these thing that often become important to young ones.Presumed by present-day demands works and competing interests, parents may be tempted to leave the education of their children to others such as school teachers and child-care professionals. Yet, no one can take the place of a loving, caring parent. You are not perfect and you will make mistakes along the way, but if you sincerely endeavor to do God’s will your children will very likely appreciate your efforts and benefit from them.

Education is a journey that lasts a lifetime. If you and your children loved God, it is a journey that you will be able to enjoy throughout eternity. That is because there will always be more to learn about God, and how we can serve his purpose.
