dear papa

I opted to keep silent about my real feel coz I am just too shy to express to you what I feel. But maybe today is the right time to open up and say what I really want to say.

Today let me tell you how much I miss you. I may not there to see you more often and to celebrate every occasion with you, but deep in my heart, I really wish to be there with you.

Life is never an easy journey for me and my family that made me more invisible for you but I know you really understand my situation.

I am so thankful to have you as my father. Everything you’ve done made me a better person.
Papa, thank you too for all the love and concern that you have for me and my family.

And I dedicate this poem to you:

A Dad is a person
who is loving and kind,
And often he knows
what you have on your mind.
He's someone who listens,
suggests, and defends.
A dad can be one
of your very best friends!
He's proud of your triumphs,
but when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient
and helpful and strong
In all that you do,
a dad's love plays a part.
There's always a place for him
deep in your heart.
And each year that passes,
you're even more glad,
More grateful and proud
just to call him your dad!
Thank you, Dad...
for listening and caring,
for giving and sharing,
but, especially, for just being you!
Happy Father's Day


To my beloved husband
and to all the fathers out there,
Enjoy your day


Just a quick note!

Hello everyone! :)

I'm very busy & demoralized at the same time but I wanted to post a quick note because I really-really miss you guys.

I still have constant challenges to get through each day and your prayer is very much appreciated.It continues to be a difficult journey for me, but I know someday soon this will all pass. Sabi nga ni Santino, may bukas pa!

Anyway, our contract will end on the 30th of June and we still don’t know what will happen next. But for the rest of June and until the next boss come, we are all very busy.

By next week, I will be out of the office to attend a workshop and a writeshop. And the week after next, I will also be out of the office for a closed door session with our trainor so we can submit our output on or before June 30.

For the meantime, let me share to you some of the pictures I took at the MMLDC in Antipolo City last May 25-26 during our 2-day workshop there.
