The Pope Francis Effect in My Life

Pope’s Francis visit really made a significant impact in my life and also to my family.  Hanggang ngayon almost a week after damang dama ko pa din ang epekto nito sa buhay ko. To be honest, we are already on the verge of changing religion. We are looking for a more intimate relationship with the Lord kasi, yan ang rason naming sa paglipat sana namin sa ibang  religion.  Pero let me make some kwento sa isang wake up call sa aming pamilya.

My bunso was chosen as one of Pope Francis’ Little Swiss Guard (naikwento ko po iyan here). Dahil sa preparation ni bunso with the coming of the Pope, since vacation ni OFW husband syempre kasa kasama kami sa church para sa mga practicesm at sa mass sa parish na incharge sa mga Little Swiss Guards.

Nakakahiya man sabihin, mas spiritual pa ang aming bunso, my son urged us na magpray as a family, mg simba together kasi sa totoo lang minsan nagiging excuse sa amin na busy, may appointment na nauna, at hindi na nakakasimba.  Lumaki din kasi kaming mag asawa na hindi regular na nagsisimba.  Little did we realize na ang aming bunso pala ang magiging isntrumento para ipakita sa amin na its not about changing religion, kami pala ang dapat na lumapit sa Kanya.  Gusto naming ng mas intimate relationship with the Lord, yun pala kami ng aking pamilya ang hindi lumalapit sa Kanya.

Lalo pang nagwake up call sa aming pamilya ang pagdating ni Pope Feancis dahil muli narekindle at nabuhay an g aming personal na relationship kay God.  Madami syang mga pangaral na tumimo sa akin at nawa ay maisabuhay naming ito bilang isang pamilya na tumatalima ayon sa kagustuhan ng ating Panginoon.

I just received an early Christmas gift from AVON Philippines. This Mommy is all grin and smiles since I really love the gift. I am your typical Mom who would love to put almost all my foodie stuff in a tight sealed container to maintain its freshness.

I am glad that I got introduced to Neoflam by Avon Home – I just love the tight sealed Neoflam Vacum Storage technology that they offer coz it really maintains the freshness of the food. Since it is vacuum sealed you can be assured that the food maintains its flavor, preserve food nutrients, enhance flavor and prolong freshness by vacuuming out the air in the container. This product is really a must have for very household.

Neoflam is perfect for dining and storage needs. Every Mom would surely love this. If ever you are scouting for an early Christmas gifts to a Mom this will surely be well loved by the Mommy recipient.

May 2013 – I’m So Lucky, Lucky, Lucky (Again & Again & Again)

For the month of May I am indeed very lucky, I won in 2 contests .

Opo ako na nga po ang tinaguriang reyna na mga pacontest, parati po akong wagi sa mga contest, mapa online man, at maging raffle sa office tuwing anniversary or Christmas party.  Nagsimula ang aking lucky streak nung ako ay nasa High School pa lang.  Nagparaffle ang Student Council ng Cake at sa aking ala-ala ay butter mocha  flavor pa nga, sa madali’t sabi parang mantikilya ang lasa, pero magkaganun pa man ang lasa carry na din.  Hindi ko man ito naiuwi dahil nilantakan na ng aking mga barkada, masasabi kong magandang buwena mano.

At bilang ebidensya ito ang aking mga blessings na natamo kaya naman talagang lucky, lucky, lucky ang lola nyo : BLESSING BUCKET

For last month buwan ng Mayo 2013, love, love love talaga kasi masasabi kong I’m So Lucky, Lucky, Lucky  (Again & Again & Again)….

Allow me to brag a little:

Ako po ay nagwagi sa dalawang pacontest: isang Online at sa pacontest sa office.

I won this Carwash and Quick Detailing Set from Spray n’ Go Waterless.  I tried to use this and since I really do not have a freedom of time to have our car cleaned sa carwash I am loving it.  Once naubos, I am considering buying a bigger one for my Champ’s use. (Opo si Champ ang aming car na maasahan)

Opo ako po ay hindi lang sa online maswerte maging sa mga offline raffle po ay sadyang pinagpala ata ako (Thanks God).  Mula nuon magpahanggang ngayon sa bawat opisinang aking kinabibilangan ako po ay nanalo din:  ilan sa mga ito : nung kakauso pa lang ng external harddrive isa po ako sa mapalad na nagkaruon, company bags, grocery gift baskets, LaGermania Gas Range (na magpahanggang ngayon ay aming gamit, akin din itong naging katuwang sa aking sideline na business na nbaked goodies nuon),  microwave oven, WII at madami pa pong iba.

At ang latest ako po ay nagwagi ng VIP Pass (for two) sa Premiere Night ng SUPERMAN this coming June 12, 2013.  Grabe kamahal pala nito – Php 3,000 (3 thousand petot).  Since walang bumili kahit na prinomo ko na ito ng 2th, ako at si bunso ko ang aatend ng premiere night.

Konting kwento kung paano ako nanalo, kung sino daw ang unang makakapagpadala ng entry regarding how to relate a certain “word” in our company’s Vision – Mission ay syang wagi.  Dito ko nagamit ang aking pagiging blogger. Sa awa ng Diyos, isa ako sa 3 na nagwagi.  Meron pang mga susunod sa opis, nahiya naman ako na sumali muli kaya ang ginagawa ko I just helped my friends at sila man ay nanalo.  Give chance to others kung baga hehehhe.

May phone-In question ang aking mga friendship:

Bakit daw ako palaging nanalo sa mga contest?

Simple lang ang sagot ni Brown Pinay dyan:

Parating nanalo si Brown Pinay sa mga contest dahil parati akong madalas sumali sa mga ito.  You will never got a chance if you will not join.

Sana sa susunod lotto naman hehehhehe

My Big, Brown Bag from Domestic Cherry

I really need to be thankful and blessed since I won in another online contest hosted by my friend Domestic Cherry. Yes another one for my blessing bucket.The package with the big brown bag arrived this week here in our office and it never ceases to put a big smile in my face. I just love the bag. I am sure that this will be my fave office bag.

I Love My Grendha Viky

Last week I received a package from 2Go and it really put a sweet smile in my face. I received a Grendha shoes which I got as a sponsored gift from our last Pinay Mommies Community (PMC) EB.

I am really fond of wearing wedge shoes, but since I am diagnosed with Cervical Spondylosis (yes a sickness similar to ex-President’s Gloria Arroyo) I was advised by my doctor to refrain from wearing high-heels/wedge shoes while I am undergoing physical therapy rehab. Hence, Grendha’s package arrival was just very timely since I am really about to buy a flat sandals.

I received a Grendha Viky which is made of elegant strap with ribbon embellishment that suits to any formal chic attire.

Grendha Viky

My Actual Grendha Viky

I actually wore it already when I went to the hospital for my rehab therapy and I find it to be real comfy and stylish too. After that I dropped by at Trinoma Mall and it was a long walk indeed. I didn’t experience having blister in my feet on my first use.

{{Sorry that I cannot actually give you a peek of my picture wearing it…I am not gifted with a beautiful feet and it may not give justice to the beautiful Grendha shoes hehehehe}}

I am planning to buy a black Grendha flats for the office, actually I am really dying to have this one.
