Journeys in Thailand: A Reason to Celebrate

There are plenty of reasons to attend our Sunday gatherings at GIFT Church, all but for the glory of the Lord. Be present to celebrate the gift of life. Meet real people. Shift old ways and habits to better days. Celebrate bountiful gifts. Pray for your shortcomings and misfortune. Pay forward to all the blessings you’ve had and will receive. Whatever is your calling, be present to the praises and abundance of the moment and you’re most welcome.

Last week was exceptional. We celebrated our pastor’s mother (Lola Paty) 77th birthday. We have fun sharing this moment with these folks who’ve been in the same way bear witnesses to our own family’s event highlights; birthdays, wedding, christening, anniversaries and even traditional holidays.

I met this family through my husband Delle sometime in 2011 when we were still dating. And being an introvert myself, you can’t imagine how hard for Delle to put all these convincing power and true-to-life influences at work. Those moments he was desperately in need of divine intervention for me to go out and meet people. Now, I’m a convert. And by that, I’m forever grateful to Delle and these people.

And while it’s true, it’s hard enough to exist in a foreign world without your loved ones or friends; this family and few other members have been reaching out to OFWs as support group while fulfilling their role as missionaries. As an expat, help may come in different ways through different people. I’ve seen a lot of Filipinos coming in and out of this Church and have heard numerous stories and struggles but one thing for sure God sent us here for a reason. And I’m glad we came and met in this little house called G.I.F.T Church.

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
