Ash Wednesday 2014


I'm glad I was able to make it to the church after my activity. Even if I was already tired and my feet were aching I still went to the church for the the Ash Wednesday. It feels good to go home knowing that you have accomplished something that day. =)

I'm Blogging Again...

I missed this little virtual space of mine. I haven't been that active in the blogging world for 2 years. Yeah! That's a very long time. 2 years (I guess more than that) of battling with myself or let's just say that we have our own crisis in life. And this time I'm trying to patch things up with myself and try to continue with my life and move ahead. So 2014, please be good to me and give me what I would work hard for. Please! Please! Please! 

I guess some of you can relate and some will say, "This girl is crazy stupid!" But let's just accept it that there comes to a point in our life that we have so many questions with ourselves with so little answers and it left us blank with no idea which way to go. 

I'm not insane but I've got some issues in my life that only me who understands it. I guess it's a mixed of issues with family, friends, colleagues, other people and other things and even with career. And I am now trying to resolve these things with myself. I shouldn't let my fears eat me alive. I should conquer these issues in life. I should be strong... and patient. 

Now I'm rebooting myself, trying to start all over again. Enough with blaming and regrets. Nothing will happen if I let negativity come my way. I know I'm not that strong but I should be STRONG. I know I have family and friends but at the end of the day the only person I have is "MYSELF." 

So this is the NEW ME with my head held high saying I CAN DO THIS!

PS: Please let me know if I haven't followed you back yet on Google Friend Connect, Blog Loving or Google Plus. TY =)

Crossroads

Here I go again! I'm always a confused girl, who doesn't know where to go and which to choose. If I'm not mistaken, I''ve already blogged about this matter and I'm blogging about this again. Hahaha!

There are many factors why I can't decide on which path to choose. First, my family. It's difficult when they wanted something for me that I'm not really interested in doing. Secondly, peer pressure (LOL) but it's true. One of my friend wants me to join her to work again with our profession but that's when I decided to switch to a new profession which I think I will really enjoy and love doing. Thirdly, I'm just insane. PERIOD!


It's never to late to take a new path, right? I know in a few years, I would turn 30 but it's just now that I've realized what I really want for myself. Something that I've decided all by myself without other people's influence nor advice.


We only live once and I want to do what makes me happy. I want to know what's my purpose and I want to make my life worth living and meaningful. I hope everything will be okay. I trust everything to our dear Lord!

Outfit: Romper Dress

 
I just simply love this pair of dress. I called it romper dress because it's like a combination of a romper and a dress.LOL I feel comfortable wearing it. I'm still thinking about on where to wear this. Do you have any idea?

By the way this dress is given by Pink City Shoppe. Hope you can also visit the store. They've got affordable and fashionable items. They also sell in wholesale which I think you can save a lot.

My Simple Birthday Celebration


Last June 12, I celebrated my 28th birthday without my family. My mother and siblings are all working abroad, and my father passed away just last year. So I wanted to keep it simple. Good thing my someone special is with me and he even cooked a special dish for me. The spicy chicken. I don't what's the name of the dish 'coz he didn't tell me. But it was really delicious and spicy. Hahaha!



Too bad, I got a minor burn while I was preparing the foods. It was a bit painful but I was thankful it wasn't that serious. It really turned reddish. This made my birthday somehow memorable. LOL

Nursing Week 2012

This is another late post. Last year, during my training in the hospital, my batch was lucky enough to experience the celebration of the nursing week. On the last day of the said event, there was a pageant for staff nurses called "Mr. and Ms. Nursing." Of course, our group was very supportive on our candidates. We were there to cheer them. And I can say that we were the noisiest group among the crowd. Hahaha!

While our candidates were preparing for the pageant and us, preparing for the props, we had a lot of photo ops. As in a looottt!!! We used a vacant room while preparing so other people especially patients and their family won't see us and won't be disturbed. We were lucky that time because there was a vacant suite room. LOL... We even used the bed for photo op.

Pauso lang. Hahaha! Since I am small, I can fit into this small space.




 See, we even made our own banners. The materials are made of recycled materials except the colored cartolinas and balloons.LOL The boxes are from Kabiven (TPN Brand) and the sticks are I think borrowed from the mops. Hahaha!!!

Before the pageant begun, Rodjun Cruz did a special number. I didn't know that he's handsome pala. Most girls really should and got "kilig" when they saw her.

Our representative in our ward. Our group were really supportive that everytime they were on the stage we were cheering on them. Too bad, they didn't make it but at least we were happy and proud for them.

If I'm not mistaken the lady in the middle was Janine Tugonon, and the girl on the right was Empress Schuck. They were the judges. I wasn't paying attention when they're names are being called and my friends too so I couldn't confirm if that's really her.

We were lucky to have a picture with Empress Schuck. She was a bit near to where we were seated that's why we were able to approach her. 

This event was really fun even if both our candidates didn't win. But our escort made it to top five. So it wasn't bad at all. Having events like this in hospitals help nurses to take a little break from their busy duty days. Besides, all work is not good for every employee, right? Sometimes we need to relax and have some fun.

Outfit: Boots vs. Slippers

This photo was really taken early last year. Since June is the start of rainy season, I decided to post this outfit even if it's too late. Better than never. Hehe...


We were on our way to Clark, Pampanga that time and we decided to stop over to refill gas from Lakeshore. Before leaving the gas station, we decided to explore the place and we saw this nice man made lake which is perfect for photo op. Hahaha! I wore slippers because they're comfy and my feet were relaxed.

 

I was wearing slippers while we were on our way to our destination but I changed it to boots when the evening came. I think boots are perfect for rainy and cold days. I really love boots. Too bad we don't have winter here in the Philippines. But when cold weather comes, I really do wear boots. They're very comfy and fashionable.

Top - Bazaar
Jeggings - Bazzar
Slippers - Birkenstock 
Boots - Payless
