Today I had to start out the day earlier than usual and through the rush I honestly forgot to take some pocket money (for lunch and transport ticket). I thank GOD that I took my husband' s lunchpass (a sort of ticket accepted in certain commercial establishments as a form of payment). But they dont accept it in the pizzaparlor where I usually eat, I tried with other food stores but to no avail. Finally I came to one supermarket and they accept it but they have no pizza (my usual lunch) so I settled for a coke-incan, ritters sport chocobar and potatoe chips then the cashier asked me for additional money because I exceeded the amount in the lunch pass so I had to admit in front of the cashier and everybody waiting in line behind me, that I have brought no money. The only thing I can be ashamed of is if I did something wrong like shoplifting. Then later, as I was going for an outdoor assignment I realized I was at risk of being caught without busticket (which might mean paying Euro 100 fine) I was also tempted of climbing-over the subway train's separation 'fence' (as I have successfully done a number of times before even with bigbrother cameras poked all over) , so as to avoid spending or punching the only and last ticket on my jungled bag. I always pray. I am always oblivious when I'm solitary because it is my chance to talk to GOD, especially when I'm travelling. I rarely have time to think of anything else, as a wise advice says 'Why worry when you can Pray'. GOD ALWAYS comes to 'rescue' me many, many, many, Many Times. Just like this afternoon as I punched the last ticket I prayed to GOD to give me a person that can help me or give me at least Euro 1 to buy a transport ticket. The next breath and step led me to a nice acquaintance who I really rarely see. The last time we met was when her sister invited me to their family reunion last summer August (which parts I also filmed and posted here in the older) . As embarassing as it was, it was clearly GOD's answer to my sigh of prayer so I asked her rather shyly and apologetically if she can lend me Euro 1 (with explaining on the sides, why..) Isn't GOD just wonderfully merciful and Great in kindness and love? AGAIN, I MUST PRAISE AND GLORIFY MY GOD IN JESUS' NAME Amen.

We attended the celebration of Philippine Independence Day last June 12, at Manila Square here in Rome, and we enjoyed so much not only all the typical Filipino delicacies (mostly for free, just like in a town 'Fiesta'), but also the company of all the filipinos in that highly festive occasion where the TFC channel also held a show hosted by Pokwang and Randy Santiago.But we weren't able to watch anymore as we left before their arrival, late in the afternoon.We didn't want to expose our little daughter to too much sun. But it was the first time we attended the Philippine Independence Day here in Rome. It was also funny to see some foreigners, muslim-looking and also Italians appreciating our festivities and our food. There were many different booths set-up to promote varied services like Filipino real estate companies,Filipino Banking institutions, legal assistance, food stands etc. There was also the 'halo-halo' under the heat of the sun--:The most surprisin…

Cross At The Center of The Universe

This is the actual image at the very center of our universe,found at the core of the Whirlpool Galaxy (M51) Not long ago, a certain very young Pastor Louise who himself also, is a NASA/space enthusiast- preached in Spain about the incomprehensible enormity of our universe. It was a very eloquent message,very well explained and accompanied by his own actual visual collections from NASA. He articulately (however hard he tried to..) showed the vastness of GOD (more than that, the vastness of GOD's Love for us) . ...consider, at 60,000 or 70,000 ft. above the sealevel, all structures on earth's surface would hardly be visible through the naked eye, lowfast lamborghinis or ferraris, jetplanes,villas and mansions, the most luxurious malls and most importantly-people would seem inexistent. If you travel farther,beyond our own solar system or even outside our Milky Way galaxy, the Earth would seem to be only a dot.And men, you or me would be insignificant(or seemingly inexistent) size…


We celebrated our sixth year wedding anniversary yesterday at Hard Rock Cafe' at the Rome tourist belt area.Of course Italy is known for its delightful and fat-free cuisine but due to budget constraints we opted not for a fine dining.But the entire day was blessed with cheers and simple fatty dishes by Hard Rock but nevertheless served with kindness and sweetness by the young and handsome waiter.That is also good enough to make up for what might still be lacking to call it a memorable wedding anniversary.We were with my girlfriend Lala with whom I was teasing Alessandro our waiter just for fun.We finished our dinner with yet another greasy dessert hot fudge brownies.After that,we proceeded with some photoshoot outside the restaurant.As the American embassy is just a stone's throw away from Hard Rock, I also had my photo taken with it in the background.Well there's one more reason to Praise My GOD today.
