This is my December – Excited and Thankful

HELLO DECEMBER! Wow, that fast? I recall that around this time last year, I was busy doing some last minute preparations for my trip to the UK. Instead of buying new clothes for the winter season, I shopped for Filipino goodies like Lucky Me Pansit Canton, Boy Bawang, Likas Papaya Soap, Cebu Dried Mangoes, Goldilocks Polvoron and so on. My friends also prepared a mini-despedida for me. I didn’t really know what to expect and I don’t have concrete plans at all. You know, the possibility of me staying there for good and meeting my now teen brother Carlo after many years.

Now accepting Christmas presents hehe 😛

I passed that challenge already and right now, I am here in a coffee shop somewhere in Dagupan City waiting for my high school classmates whom I haven’t seen in years.  Yikes. I’m nervous. Weird feeling is weird LOL.

Iser, Me and Edmon Four Years Ago 🙂

As a student, one of my professors told me that I looked like a ‘Rebel with a Cause’. Dumbfounded with his impression towards me, he explained that I am the type of person who will do whatever she wants especially when she knows she’s right. Well, that is partly true 😛

Life Wish – The Edge of Fear and Joy

Death is a subject that most people wouldn’t want to talk about or rather, think about. As much as possible, we would like to avoid discussing it. In reality, we cannot even predict our own death. It is something that we cannot control. There are different types of death, but untimely death is one that gives us too much shock and we can’t even figure out how we can possibly move on.

DO the DanO and live it up... Life is too short not to!

“Dearest Emma, my love for you is higher than the highest of peaks! Love, Dad,” right above where is says “DON’T LET YOUR FEARS STAND IN THE WAY OF YOUR DREAMS.”

– Dan Osman poster message to daughter Emma.

Earlier, a Facebook contact of mine shared a video about Dan Osman. The name is quite familiar, but i am not sure why. I clicked on the YouTube link and wow, this man is amazing! How can he possibly do that speed rock climbing without ropes and safety gear? I then remember that my father showed a newspaper clipping to me way back, but i couldn’t exactly remember if he’s a fan or he simply wanted to show it to me.
