The Secret to a Lasting Marriage: Embrace Imperfection

Thought this is worth sharing to all the married couples out there and soon to be married couples.

The Secret to a Lasting Marriage: Embrace Imperfection
Deb Graham - Contributor

When I was a little girl, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work.

On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and ask me how my day was at school.

I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite! When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the toast. And I'll never forget what he said: "Baby, I love burned toast."

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, "Debbie, your momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides-a little burnt toast never hurt anyone!"

In bed that night, I thought about that scene at dinner and the kindness my daddy showed my mom. To this day, it's a cherished memory from my childhood that I'll never forget. And it's one that came to mind just recently when Jack and I sat down to eat dinner.

I had arrived home late as usual and decided we would have breakfast food for dinner. Some things never change, I suppose!

To my amazement, I found the ingredients I needed, and quickly began to cook eggs, turkey sausage, and buttered toast. Thinking I had things under control, I glanced through the mail for the day. It was only a few minutes later that I remembered that I had forgotten to take the toast out of the oven!

Now, had it been any other day -- and had we had more than two pieces of bread in the entire house -- I would have started all over. But it had been one of those days and I had just used up the last two pieces of bread. So burnt toast it was!

As I set the plate down in front of Jack, I waited for a comment about the toast. But all I got was a "Thank you!" I watched as he ate bite by bite, all the time waiting for some comment about the toast. But instead, all Jack said was, "Babe, this is great. Thanks for cooking tonight. I know you had a hard day."

As I took a bite of my charred toast that night, I thought about my mom and dad how burnt toast hadn't been a deal-breaker for them. And I quietly thanked God for giving me a marriage where burnt toast wasn't a deal-breaker either!

You know, life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people. I'm not the best housekeeper or cook. And you might be surprised to find out that Jack isn't the perfect husband! He likes to play his music too loud, he will always find a way to avoid yard work, and he watches far too many sports. Believe it or not, watching " Golf Academy " is not my idea of a great night at home!

But somehow in the past 37 years Jack and I have learned to accept the imperfections in each other. Over time, we have stopped trying to make each other in our own mold and have learned to celebrate our differences. You might say that we've learned to love each other for who we really are!

For example, I like to take my time, I'm a perfectionist, and I'm even-tempered. I tend to work too much and sleep too little. Jack, on the other hand, is disciplined, studious, an early riser, and is a marketer's dream consumer. I count pennies and Jack could care less! Where he is strong, I am weak, and vice versa.

And while you might say that Jack and I are opposites, we're also very much alike. I can look at him and tell you what he's thinking. I can predict his actions before he finalizes his plans. On the other hand, he knows whether I'm troubled or not the moment I enter a room.

We share the same goals. We love the same things. And we are still best friends. We've traveled through many valleys and enjoyed many mountaintops.

And yet, at the same time, Jack and I must work every minute of every day to make this thing called "marriage" work!

What I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's faults - and choosing to celebrate each other's differences - is the one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting marriage relationship.

And that's my prayer for you today. That you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your married life and lay them at the feet of GOD. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a marriage where burnt toast isn't a deal-breaker!

the child in me?

When i'm inside the malls, i try to avoid going inside the school shops/stores because i always end up buying pencils or ballpens which i don't really need. I would still even buy stationaries. I buy cute accessories that my eyes catch. I'm very fond of them. It is a habit that i can't seem to get rid of.

Last weekend, two little girls (my neighbors) went inside our house and saw my pencils. One of them said "Ate, ako na ni beh, kani pink ako." The other one added "Ako pud ate, kani ako ang blue." You know what i told them? I said "Ah ayaw lang, balik lang, palitan lang tamo lain!" LOL!!!!

o di ba cute noh? iskuyla na tah nah! haha!:P

i love pink

I love pink. (OK now i admit it!) Any stuff in the shade of pink is an apple to my eye. My younger sister would always ask me if my shoes or belt or bag should be pink? Well, it depends on my mood. It's just that i feel that pink is my color. I feel good when i wear something pink. I love other pastel colors and earth colors too. Pink is just dominant. I have a little game for you.

can you guess to which stuff i took this picture? :P
or simply guess what item is the above picture ;)

runny nose

Argh! I don't like what i'm feeling today. I'm having colds and I hate it. I just kept on sneezing, my nose already hurts. My eyes are watery and i feel so weak. I can't afford to be absent tomorrow or the next days for i don't have paid sick leaves anymore. Should i be absent, that only means salary deduction! Can i use vacation leave and reason for leave is sick? Heheh! Oh i forgot! I should save my vacation leaves for Christmas vacation. Tsk! I even need to save up some leaves for early next year. Why did i not think about it beforehand?! *sneeze* *sneeze* *sneeze*

stock footage video

Who loves to take photos? I do! Seriously, i like to be photographed better. But there are a lot of people out there whose passion is photography. Not only they come off as hobby but as employment as well like the professional photographers and cinematographers.

My 5 Best Nights

My 5 Best Nights

Rule: Name 5 best nights of your life and tag 5 friends.

So far these are my most best nights...

1. The night after i learned i passed the entrance exam for working scholars of USJR.

2. The night i passed the licensure exam for electronics and communications engineering.

3. The night when i arrived in Michigan. It was a work assignment but i'm grateful because it was my first out of the country trip.

4. The night i arrived in California. A dream come true to visit Disneyland. I couldn't thank enough my friend Belle.

5. The night my blog got approved for paid blogging! har har har! :D :P

I got this tag from Bless. Thanks Bless! :)

Now I will tag 5 of my online buddies Glorie, Francine, Vicky, Aneshka and Ainsley. Enjoy!

my personalized sign :)

I work in an environment where the use of electronic or test tools is very high. Yet, we don't have the ample amount of these tools when the time comes that everyone has to use one. Too ideal but we should probably have one each. Then again, that's quite impossible considering how costly one item costs. It's very annoying when you arrive in the morning to discover that your test set-up is lacking this and that equipment. It is time consuming too look around and see if there's another available tool to use. To avoid the hassles, i made up a sign that stays put whether i have a testing or not. See below...

o di ba? the cuttest sign there is! heheh!


The cute mickey mouse holder was a gift given to me by my friend Belle when i went to California. My remembrance from Disneyland - all courtesy of Belle. I'm really a lucky fellow when it comes to friends. Don't you think? :P

I have friends that are in the medical field. I think i have some very helpful important news to tell them. Actually not only to them but to all of you out there.

i'm out of quandary

I'm out of quandary. Well, not really, but the thing is i quite have said yes to my manager already. I sort of have accepted the position but then again he can't tell me directly when it is effective. I really don't like the idea of accepting it but i might just look at the positive things it could give me. I don't mean salary here because that matter is super vague. I'll just consider the experiences that comes along with it. Oh my god, i will be back to the thursday telecons and plentiful of reports to make. Goodbye freedom! Aarrgghhh!

sad story

One night a guy took his girlfriend home. As they were about to kiss each other goodnight at the front door, the guy started feeling a little in the mood.

With an air of confidence, he leaned with his hand against the wall and smiling, he said to her
"Honey, would you give me a kiss?"
Horrified, she replied,
"Are you mad? My parents will see us!"
" Oh come on! Who's gonna see us at this hour?"
He asked grinning at her.
"No, please. Can you imagine if we get caught?"
"Oh come on! There's nobody around, they're all sleeping!" .
"No way. It's just too risky!"
"Oh please, please, I love you so much?!?" .
"No, no, and no. I love you too, but I just can't!" .
"Oh yes you can. Please?" ............
"No, no. I just can't"
"I'm begging you ... "

Out of the blue, the light on the stairs went on, and the girl's older sister showed up in her pyjamas, hair dishevelled, and in a sleepy voice she said,
"Dad says to go ahead and give him a kiss, or I can do it. Or if need be, mom says she can come down herself and do it, but for God's sake and all of ours....
' ' TELL HIM TO TAKE HIS HAND OFF THE INTERCOM ! !

my thoughtful seatmate

My seatmate is really a thoughtful one. She never fails to forget about me. She just went home to her hometown in Bacolod. But of course, i received today my favorite Macapuno candies. She knew that i love this kind of sweetened delight. Her husband got her a copy of a local band album. What do you know? She told her husband to get another copy for me! Isn't that sweet? :)

i will enjoy munching these candies later ;)

God Knows Bike Secrets

God Knows Bike Secrets

At first I saw God as my observer, my judge, keeping track of the things I did wrong, so as to know whether I merited heaven or hell when I die. He was out there sort of like the president. I recognized His picture when I saw it, but I didn't really know Him.

But, later when I recognized my Higher Power, it seemed as though life was rather like a bike ride, but it was a tandem bike, and I noticed that God was in the back helping me pedal.

I don't know just when it was that He suggested we change places, but life has never been the same since, life with my Higher Power, that is. God makes life exciting!!! When I had control, I knew the way. It was rather boring and predictable. It was the shortest distance between two points. But, when He took the lead, He knew delightful long cut, up mountains, and through rocky places and at breakneck speeds. It was all I could do to hang on!!!! Even when it looked like madness, He said, "PEDAL!"

I worried and was anxious and I ask, "where are you taking me?" He just laughed, but didn't answer, and I started to learn and trust. I forgot my boring life and entered into a new adventure. And when I'd say, "I'm scared," He'd lean back and touch my hand.

He took me to people with gifts that I needed, gifts of healing, acceptance and joy. They gave freely of their gifts to me to take on my journey, our journey, God's and mine. And we were off again.

He said, "give these gifts away, they're extra baggage, too much weight." So I did, to people we met along the way, and I found that the more I gave away the more I received, and still our burden was light.

I didn't trust Him at first, in control of my life. I thought He'd wreck it. But God knows bike secrets, He knows how to make it bend to take sharp corners, jump to clear high rocks and fly through scary passages. And I'm learning to shut up and pedal in the strangest places. Plus, I'm beginning to enjoy the view and the cool breeze on my face, with my delightful and constant companion, my Higher Power.

And when I'm sure I can't do any more, He just smiles and says, "PEDAL!"

two moons

I received this email weeks ago and saved it in my reminders' list but i still failed to observe it. Did you?

*Two moons on 27 August 2007*

*27th Aug the Whole World is waiting for......... ....*

Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August.

It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will culminate on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles of earth. Be sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 12:30 am. It will look like the earth has 2 Moons. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

Share this with your friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again.

what motivates you?

Honestly, just like what i always say, i'm getting lazy going to work. Everyday, it's like i have to drag myself to wake up, get dressed and go to work. It's a daily routine that i have to deal with. No matter how i try, i really don't like working anymore. If this should be the case, I know i should have resigned already. Ironic but i have my reasons too why i haven't resigned yet. I wonder what motivates people to work? Is it the salary? the working environment? the people they're working with? I don't know, i'm maybe drained out? Maybe the obvious reason is that i'm not satisfied with the way things are. Argghhh!

cosmetology schools

Sometimes when i get bored of being an engineer, I always think of trying out a new job that is non-engineering stuff. Sometimes i think of becoming a cashier, a sales lady or a cook. Since i like the idea of beautifying, oftentimes, i end up thinking of having a beauty parlor. However, i believe that the best way to run a business is to have a personal knowledge or background of what you're going into. I needed to study and enrol in cosmetology schools and develop skills of beautifying. Do you know that there are really good schools for this that we can actually lean unto? Regency Beauty Institute is a premier cosmetology school that is committed and aims to help their students to fulfill their dreams by seeking to understand them as individuals, delivering a strong technical platform and providing creative freedom. With their upscale facilities and well rounded training, their mission is not impossible. It's not about being vain but this is about feeling good and boosting that self confidence. Get yourself enrolled in a cosmetology school now.

lazy me

Since it's my sister's wedding today, i took the day off from work. Pretty long weekend for me huh! Now, i don't really feel like going back to work tomorrow. Just thinking of it makes me nauseated! Wahhh! I'm a disaster! I have always been a good worker/employee. I don't know, i just don't have the motivation the past days or months perhaps. (that's even worse) But i have to work, i have to or else i'll find myself inside the jail. LOL! I have many utangs to pay. Hek hek! Ey at least there will be a good looking guy in the office tomorrow. ;) Who? secret! :P

my sister's wedding

This is not a movie title. Indeed, my sister, the eldest, got married. So, one of the apples in the family has been picked already. The wedding rites was held in Guadalupe Church earlier. It was a very simple wedding yet very solemn. Attended by close relatives and family friends, it turned out to be a nice one. I say nice because we were happy that even after what had happened to my sister, the wedding still pushed through. Some con artists got all of her money last week because she was a victim of a hold-up crime inside the jeepney. Glad, nothing bad happened to her physically. I'll post some photos later. This entry is very very personal, i don't talk in my blog about my family. :)

inspirational blog



Karl Moore

I say i am a blogger just like anyone else. But being a blogger does not mean writing alone. This also entails reading. We also read writings by other people, writings by fellow bloggers i may say. One of my favorite things to read are insprational quotes and stories. It is my delight that i came across Karl's blog, a perfect example of a must-read-blog. He posts inspirational messages to his blog everyday, aimed to inspire and help individuals in their spiritual growth. Who by the way is Karl? His real complete name is Karl Moore, an entrepreneur and a best selling author. How often do we meet individuals like him who zealously devote their time in sharing some inspirational thoughts to others? Not always right? So take this opportunity and be inspired. Visit and read through Karl's blog.

long weekends

The month of August is supposedly very cool. Why? We have many holidays on this month thus many long weekends. We have 3 long weekends to enjoy. Holidays fall on a Monday that left us with Tuesday-Friday working schedule only. So lousy that with these 3 long weekends, none of these that i get to enjoy for an out of town trip not even a beach outing in Lapulapu! I kind of wasted the time but it's okay, i haven't gotten back my color from outings last summer. I've been using a lot of whitening soaps but to no effect! LOL! Instead i spend these weekends lounging at home watching tv or koreanovelas or going to Colon or Tabo sa Banay to shop. Either way, i still spend money! Waahhh!

drug rehabilitation

First let me define what addiction is? According to the dictionary - being abnormally tolerant to and dependent on something that is psychologically or physically habit forming especially alcohol or narcotic drugs. At one point or another, some of us may have suffered addiction in any form. We become dependent on it that refraining from doing it or having it seems to kill us. I am a coffee addict. However this is an addiction that must be put to an end since i always suffer hyperacidity. If i find caffeine addiction so difficult to resist. What more if you are suffering from drugs or alcohol? Rehabilitation is the best recourse that you should get into. Learn more about drug rehab and see how it could help you abstain and recover from addiction.

I have a neighbor before who was pathetically dependent on drugs. She became a threat to neighbors because she threw anything on the walls. I was glad that she was finally into drug rehab, now she's alive and full of life.

Life is too short to be wasted. If you are currently suffering from addiction or abuse. It's not too late! There are a lot of support group and health programs that will help you deal with overcoming addiction. Drug rehab can sure do more and bring out the best in you.

There are a lot of rehab programs which can offer you information on drug addictions and available drug treatment for a particular addiction. Many of the counselors and specialists in these programs understand addictions because they were once addicted too. So, if they were able to get through with it, you should too. With the aid of appropriate programs and people, there's nothing impossible.

Don't get treatment tomorrow or the next day. Do it now. Whatever your need regarding rehabilitation, drug rehab is available 24/7. Contact them now.

going to the gym

I used to go to the gym before for two seasons. First was late of 2004, it was November. Lenny and I decided to attend the gym class somewhere in Mandaue. We succeeded for the 1st month and i tell yah i did loss a couple of kilos. What do you know? The next month is December, Lenny and I decided to stop since it's christmas season and there's going to be a lot of parties and food. Heheh!!!

Second season of going to the gym was summer of 2005. There were plenty of us in the office who joined in the Zen Spa craze. I enrolled for a 3-month period use of the gym and sauna. Guess how many times have i gone to this gym for this 3-month period? I'm so lousy i only made 6 trips to the gym! Yeah i only went to the gym 6 times! I just wasted my money! Yak! My friend Angie and officemate Lander were the only ones who religiously went to the gym everyday. Of course, they got the sexy body they wanted ;)

I should get back to the gym seriously this time. Tsk! Tsk!

it's friday again!

Oh my! Days fly so fast! It's friday again tomorrow. It's just yesterday that you greet your friends happy weekend and its happening again. Someone told me that when you're getting older, days become faster. I kind of agree with that now. Imagine how many days more and its already the start of 'ber' months! Waahhh! :)

mint credit cards

While I was in Michigan, i learned that it is more advantageous if you have some credit history as compared to having none. Very opposite in the Philippines where it is not of much liking if you have a credit history. Then again, credit cards when shopping comes in handy. No need to worry of bringing cash everytime. If you are currently in UK and wishes to learn or apply for a new credit card offer, try Mint Credit Cards. They offer low interest rates plus a lot of other benefits that you cannot find in all other credit cards. It is just right that we should get the best out of our credit card offer right?

visit australia

Who wants to go to Australia? Me is the resounding reply. A little trivia for you first. Do you know that Australia is the smallest continent between the South Pacific and the Indian Ocean? Australia has been one of my top 3 choices to travel either to just tour around or work. I have a former colleague who now resides in Sydney. She said if i go and visit her, I could stay in her apartment or to any of the Sydney hotels in the area.

The Sydney Opera House is one of the world's most recognizable opera houses and landmarks.

Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge located on Port Jackson

While in Australia, Melbourne should not be missed. It is the capital of Victoria state and the 2nd largest Australian city. Worrying where to stay? There are a lot of Melbourne hotels that you could choose from.

St. Paul's Cathedral in Melbourne

But of course, Brisbane should be a part of your itinerary. Brisbane is the capital and largest city of Queensland state; located in the southeastern corner of Queensland on the Pacific; settled by British as a penal colony; 3rd largest city in Australia. Interesting facts indeed. Like all the other cities, im pretty sure there are a lot of Brisbane hotels around that would complete your tour in Australia. You may even get offers that will include free extras such as breakfast, free meal and use of amenities.

I bet you are more than eager to visit Australia now!

Important Events that happened on July 14:
1. 2003 - Mexico declares a state of emergency due to an outbreak of the West Nile virus.

student loan consolidation

Getting education and finishing a degree now a days is really difficult. For self supporting students - either you become a working student which is really really tiring i tell you because i was once a working student or you apply for student loans. Student loans is perhaps the best answer but paying time is quite painful especially when you consider the interest rates.

bling blings

I just received my new blingblings late this afternoon while i was attending a design review. Unfortunately, Teray's elephant necklace is not included in the package. She'll have to wait for another day. I'll post some pictures tomorrow. Haay i'm sleepy.

Also, we had an earthquake emergency drill something earlier. I literally hide under the table as if. I was with a group of new intakes so i had to set as a good example. Charrr!!! I'll post pics tomorrow also.

looking for romance?

I have always been a very traditional person. However, I do realize, anything can happen from something that is non conventional. The world is evolving and so thus the human ways. Finding new friends, dates and possible soulmates and life partners online has been notable lately. Why not? I have a few friends who found the love of their lives through online dating. One person from the other race meets another person of another race. Who would not think that interracial romance will blossom?

Sometimes things just happen but why not make things happen? If you are looking for that special someone, check out interracial dating online, it is the number 1 interracial dating community on the net. Joining is as easy as 1 2 3 and it's for free! After signing up, you get to search through thousands of interracial singles who might also be looking for someone like you.

So what do you think? Are you up for online dating? Try it, you'll never know.

a love story

No, it's not about my love story for i don't have any! LOL! A Love Story is a local movie starred by Maricel Soriano, Angelica Panganiban and Aga Mulach. I've been dying to watch it since the day the movie aired its thriller. I'm not that a tagalog movie fan but i do watch sometimes. Me and the girls in the office were arguing which one is the other woman in the story. To answer our query, the 8 of us went out and watched the movie last night. My bet as to who the other woman is was right! Wanna know who? heheh! :P

Imagine how noisy the 8 of us could get when we occupied a single row in the movie house? :P

To Glorie, i'm sorry i failed to invite you to join us. Last night's idea was just a spur of the moment. Want me to tell you the story instead?!? Hehehe! :D

coupons anyone?

It's August and few more days it's gonna be the start of the cold months. When we start to feel the cold breeze, what do we have in mind? Christmas right? Christmas season is just around the corner. It is my most favorite holiday because it exemplifies the happy spirit. Somehow when it's Christmas, everyone seem to exude a joyous aura. Then again, gift giving is a part of the celebration. So as early as now, start sorting of presents to give. Your best aid are coupons from couponchief, the best in providing up to date coupon codes and promotional deals and discounts.

I like jewelries that is why i like the Bluenile coupons. For example, you'll get to save 20% on the sterling silver diamond heart tag bracelet. It's cute and you pay for less.

You must have friends who are into gadgets and tools. Don't forget to check out Dell coupons and get discounts from the array of their electronic gadgets like digital cameras.

Gift giving is fun and so for all your gift ideas, coupons will surely get you more savings. Better start your christmas shopping as early as now.

jason bourne: finally revealed

So Jason Bourne's real name is David Webb. Waahahhaha spoiler!! My apologies to those who haven't seen the movie yet! :P The movie was great but true enough (according to Aneshka), i get nauseated while watching it! Sige lihok ang screen/camera! (How do i say that in english eh?) Matt Damon is still fafable as usual but i'm a little disappointed, no scene where he shows off his lean body! Nyahahah!!!!

digitalframez

In any event or celebration, we take pictures. If we travel or go on tours, taking pictures is a must. Human as we are, we always love to share our photos to our friends or love ones. Afterall pictures are meant to be shared. Pictures are our memorabilias from moments shared and occasions attended. Digital photography has evolved so thus sharing of photos. Aside from posting photos online and using the traditional photo albums, I just found another amazing way of sharing photos. Digital photo frame is the newest craze not to miss. It is very handy and easy to use. There are different sizes, styles and colors to choose from. Pictures can be shared anytime, need not to dig up those classic old photo albums.

How does it work? No tricky instructions, so easy and simple.

2. Transfer your memory card into your Digital Photo Frame.
3. Using your remote control choose your favorite slide show.

Isn't that neat? You get to share photos in the most convenient and coolest way. We eliminate the hassles of going through developing centers. Purchase your digital photo frame now.

the bourne ultimatum

I can't wait for tomorrow! I'm gonna watch the bourne ultimatum. For a moment i thought of ditching Mr. Matt Damon. He has been one of my idols. But then I bought the OK magazine last week only to read and find out that he's already married with a kid! Waahhhhhh!!!! Well, i'll still watch the movie though. My friend from Virginia told me it's an exciting movie from start to end. I'm gonna see it for myself...

storage bed

Someday, when i become a wife, i should be home oriented. I need to know proper housekeeping. Come to think of it, i feel excited when i think of choosing my own curtains, plates, decor and home furnitures.

Might that, i will be needing some home office furniture. I really would like to buy this classic dark brown home office desk and hutch. It looked very cozy and slick. Working at home shouldn't be a worry.

Next to the bedroom, my favorite part of a house is the living room. Especially if the living room has the comfiest living room sofas. Color black is classic but i want a brown set. I like this all natural leather sofa. Family gathering in the living room can never be as comfortable as it can get. Choosing from among the best home furnitures should be a one great experience. A lot of people who have patronize their furnitures said that they have the best of customer service.

On to my most favorite part - the bedroom. If you are looking for that perfect storage bed, you just found it. They are on sale limited time, while supplies last. If you want additional storage space in your bedroom, an underbed storage bed is the best option to have. You only don't get a comfy bed to sleep and relax. You also have some extra drawers for your other stuffs. The storage bed do not only look stylish, it is functional as well. It's like hitting two birds with one stone. Isn't that a great deal?

For all other furniture needs, friends, you can just buy them all here!

i'm in quandary

My manager just called me over the phone. I went to his cubicle and talked about some stuff i can't tell you just yet. I've asked the same question a year ago and i said NO. He asked me again this time and told me that maybe this time i changed my mind? I told him that i'm gonna think it over and give him my final answer tomorrow. I'm in deep quandary. There are things i'd like that i would rather say NO than YES. On the other note, would it hurt if i say YES? It's just that i hate kissing some ass! :P I'd rather do my work quietly than manage others' crap. I really don't know. Wish me luck!

stainless steel garage cabinets

I noticed that most houses in America have garages. To some households, these garages are being used as storage room. I find it a waste when some just abandoned it and when you open the garage, all you see are piles of unused and idle novelties. I think that we could make better use of these garages if we have some stainless steel cabinets to keep old things or things not frequently used in order. Cabinets do not only make our garages neat. It can even save some space and thus can store more other things. Also, it will make things easier to look for when needed. Not only that, stainless steel cabinets can even turn our garage into some cool functional room. Just choose from among the many stainless steel cabinets or steel garage cabinets available according to your style and need.

Celebrating The Gift of Life

Life is our brief precious time to feel—to experience love, laughter, and wonder—to design and contribute our unique creations and expressions of who we are and what we want to leave behind.

I paused to think about this gift of life, mysterious and marvelous. Filled with roller coaster highs and lows, each moment of life is exhilarating.

Our living energy continuously moves and changes, always seeking increase and offering abundance. I asked, "How do I celebrate this precious gift of life?"

Here are ten ways I like to celebrate being alive.

1. Sharing experiences, joys, hopes, and future dreams with my soulmate.

2. Walking though nature, and noticing the perfection in each intimate landscape.

3. Going to special places that fill me with energy; allowing that energy to wash away negativity; simply being instead of wanting or doing.

4.Hiking up the trail to a mountain top in summer; skiing down from a mountain top in winter.

5. Looking through an album filled with photos of friends and the places we have traveled.

6. Doing a favor for someone I have never met and making a new friend.

7. Enjoying the company of friends and family; laughing together and exchanging jokes, stories, and experiences.

8. Looking into a starry sky and imagining just how far it actually reaches.

9. Fully experiencing each moment and its emotions; remembering that all emotions are part of being alive.

10. Giving thanks to the Creator for allowing me to live on this planet, for love, friends and family, and for a gift so complete and perfect as life.

There is a beautiful quote by Frederick Buechner:

Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. In the boredom and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis, all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.

Allow your heart to grow wings. Savor every moment of life and reflect deeply on each experience. Celebrate the peaks and valleys. Become aware of the authentic joy that continually binds moment to moment, year to year, and generation to generation.

Most importantly, give life the best you have, and life will give its best back to you.

Juan and the Teacher


Teacher: Juan read your 500 words essay to your classmates.
Juan: Ok Maam!
My Miming bow! I have a miming. My miming is lost. So i went outside the house and look for my miming. ming481x!

Belisi Fashion


Peter Belisi

Topics that can make the ladies focus, what else - fashion and celebrities. Just during dinner earlier, me and my officemates were talking about the latest fashion items that we can buy online. Women couldn't just have enough of shoes, sandals and bags. I know you couldn't agree more.

Belisi from Palm Beach is the newest discovery i found. If you want to be fashionable and get the best deals out of your favorite items, Belise is the answer. What's very interesting is that if you purchase something, regardless of the quantity or amount, a portion of it can be donated to the cause of your choice. You do not only get what you want but you help at the same time.

Belise does not only sell, they also give some fashion tips for you all out there. Should you wish to view some gorgeous photos, click here! And oops, did i mention fashion jewelries and beauty products? Ladies, Belise is your one stop shop.


annoying hyperacidity

I hate it when hyperacidity takes its toll on me. I cannot think well therefore i cannot do well. Hence i can't get my job done right! I have to update my evaluation form today but all i do is stare at my monitor. How lousy could that be? I already have the list of things to include in the document but i just don't have the zeal to do it. I'd have to submit it tomorrow but i don't know. My lead engineer need not to remind again but anyways i'm the last in her appointment-discussion tomorrow. If you go the clinic, you'll see my name listed a number of times already in the logbook. :P

stylish bar stools and tall chairs

One of the most important piece of furnitures is the chair. Chairs vary according to size, materials used, functionality and so on and so forth. Some would prefer sofa sets. Some would prefer single chairs. Others might want wooden chairs. Others may even choose plastic chairs. It all really depends on one’s type and needs. Some would even go for a theme that each piece inside the house should match. Well, I’m sure, others might prefer some bizarre look. However, if you're a fanatic of tall chairs, better hear what i have to say. I just found the perfect site for you! My first peek at it, i'm very much delighted by their plenty of types of bar stool chairs. They have if not all the widest selection of bar tools and high chairs. Tall metal pub kitchen dinette chair, beautiful metal swivel pub dining stool and dark metal swivel pub kitchen bar stool are just some of the many fashionable stools and chairs you could choose from.

Yes, I know some of you guys are working at home. Some are having office extensions at home working on weekends perhaps. Do you wish you have that perfect furniture home office? Wish no more, just visit furniture from home and select your order from among the many awesome home office furniture set they have.

To most, the bedroom is the most favorite part of the house. Why not especially if you have the coziest bedroom furniture? If I buy any of the bedroom furnitures they have, i probably stay at my bed longer than usual.

When we decorate our houses, we only want the best in it. It is the top priority of everybody to have the most decorative yet functional furnitures. We naturally will buy things that are worth the value of money we would spend. Good quality, stylish at affordable prices for all your furniture needs, it's a one stop shop.

What Your Hands Say About You


I got this tag from Francine. For a moment, i had to think whether my hand is short or long or what? LOL!

What Your Hands Say About You

You are logical, analytical, and rational. You have good verbal skills.

Flexible and broad minded, you can fit in to any situation. There's no telling where your life will take you.

Consistent and reliable, you like to count on structure and routine in your life.

Your emotions tend to be nervous and potent. Your energy - both positive and negative - deeply impacts your life.
What Do Your Hands Say About You?

Try it for yourself folks, it's fun! :)

boxing world cup

I was almost elated yesterday morning. 5/6 wins of Philippines versus Mexico in the boxing world cup. Just before the main event started, i texted some friends about the game standing. Vexing Ainsley called and told me that Bombom Bautista was defeated by TKO in the first round! (ABS telecast was quite delayed as compared to the net and radios) I was like whattt??? Poor Bombom. I pitied him. He's the only who lose among the 6 filipino boxers. Like Korina Sanchez said, it's too good to ask for 6/6 win. Anyways, Bombom is only 21 and he can still have his best shot next time. Go! go! go! On another note, what a great comeback by Penalosa. Kodus to the filipino boxers!

jobs in scotland

Do you happen to be staying in Scotland and is in need of a job? Or are you planning to move to Scotland, probably stay for good and wanna scout a job? Worry not because there are jobs available for you.

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, located in the Lothian Region on the south side of the Firth of Forth. Should you choose to stay here, there are lots of Edinburgh jobs you can have. From accounting to finance to banking to marketing to engineering to hotel jobs. Just about any job that will suit you, be a full time or part time. I'm pretty sure, you could find the job that interests you most.

Other than jobs in Edinburgh, if you wish to look for some flat/houses for rent, stuff for sale or services for various works, that's so easy to find in Scotland. Job hunting is just a click away!

Last Sunday, July 29, I finally met in person the one lady from Michigan whom i fondly call Lola. What the heck! The sexiest Lola i could ever probably have! LOL! :P

Here are some photos taken at Ayala Mall. :)

Watch out for the next set of pics... taken in Ayala. :P

P.S. I almost forgot, I also have another Lola from Belgium, she's equally sexy! I haven't heard from her though since i met her last 2004 or 2005 :(


booking hotels

In every travel we make, where to stay is difinitely always one of the things to consider. I already mentioned before that my dream travel is in Europe. I'm glad that i found the easiest way to book hotels already. Not only easy, i can get special offers and hotel discounts too.

The company i'm currently working with has a facility in Barcelona, Spain. My colleagues who are on assignment right now usually stays in hotel until the duration of their work assignment. If I'll be asked to support Spain projects and be asked to go to Spain, I'll suggest that i stay in Hotel Havana. :)

Okay, say, I'll be going to Spain, i totally will not miss a side trip to Rome. Being a Catholic myself, I would want to see where the Pope lives. Hmmnn i find Hotel Zone very interesting to stay at.

When i was on training in the US last 2004. I wanted to join my officemates when they went to New York but i failed to do so because i went to see another friend in California.
