Sobrang daming nangyari simula nung dumating ako from saudi. Ang isa nga dun is i got married with the man I truly love. I committed myself to him,and we promised that we will love each other till the end. Eto na yun eh,ibang level pala yung buhay may-asawa. Masaya,puno ng pagmamahal at walang pagsisisi na nagpakasal ako kay mahal. I never regret na siya ang ang naging asawa ko. Super mabait,mapagmahal,maalalahanin and he’s willing to sacrifice all for me. Ang haba ng hair ko diba? Although naging mabilis lang yung kasal kasi its a civil wedding ceremony lang. But he promised me naman na there will be a church wedding soon. Basta ang importante saken ngayon is siya,kami ngayon.
So yan yung mga pics namin nung wedding. Soo happy and contented. :)
Love is not a noun. It is a verb. Here is an old story: After she woke up, a woman told her husband, “I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine’s day. What do you think it means?” "You’ll know tonight." he said. That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, she opened it - to find a book entitled “The Meaning of Dreams.”
December 5,2012 end of contract ko dito sa saudi pero sa kadahilanang wala pa kaming kapalit na nurse eh nag extend ako until now. Ang sinabi kong uwi ko eh march 1 pero sobrang hirap kausapin ng employer ko. Naiinis na talaga ako,kahit na pabalik balik na ako sa office nila sinasabi lang nila na inshalah(”in God’s will” in christians term).
Gustong gusto ko na talaga umuwi,imagine my 2 years na nakakulong lang dito sa workplace ko.Yung dalawang beses sa isang buwan na labas ko is sobrang hirap.Nakakalungkot din na pare-parehong tao ang nakikita mo.
Gusto ko ng makalanghap ng sariwang hangin sa pinas(not included manila because of pollution).Gusto ko ng kumain ng pagkain na gusto ko,especially pork..hehe!At syempre gusto ko ng makasama pamilya ko lalong lalo na aking mapapangasawa.Yay,excited much na ako for our wedding though civil wedding lang muna kasi we dont have much time to prepare.
Kaya sana,igrant na nila yung pag uwi ko.I wanna go home.I want to see Philippines again.Lord sana matuloy na po yung uwi ko..please???
1. Slather on the sunscreen. We know, we know—you’ve heard it a million times, but wearing sunscreen is the single easiest way to look younger for life. “Ninety percent of wrinkles are from sun exposure,” says Day. “It’s so much easier to prevent the damage than it is to fix it afterwards.” That means no slacking during winter months either, when rays are just as strong and can reflect off of buildings and sidewalks. Look for a formula that offers broad-spectrum protection to guard against UVA rays (the ones that cause premature aging) and UVB rays (one of the main causes of skin cancer). Try Philosophy Shelter Broad Spectrum Sunscreen in SPF30.
2. Clean your makeup brushes. A British study found that 72% of women never wash their brushes or sponges, even though they harbor dirt and bacteria which can cause breakouts. “You should wash loose powder brushes every two to three weeks, and those used to apply foundation once a week,” says Jessica Wu, an LA-based dermatologist and author of Feed Your Face. Mix a couple of drops of gentle facial cleanser or shampoo and lukewarm water in a cup, swish your brushes around, rinse with lukewarm water, pat dry, and lay flat to air dry.
3. Munch on mixed nuts. Brazil nuts are rich in selenium, which increases skin elasticity and may decrease skin cancer, according to recent studies. Throw in walnuts—which are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids—to lower inflammation and put the brakes on breakouts, says Molly Morgan, Board Certified Sports Specialist Dietitian and author of The Skinny Rules. Finally, add some macadamias. “They’re full of high quality oils and fatty acids that aid in skin repair and rejuvenation” says integrative practitioner Isaac Eliaz. Aim for a handful of each daily to reap their pore-perfecting benefits.
4. Start using serum. ”It’s much more concentrated than cream or lotion, so you tend to only need a small amount daily to see results,” says Fran Cook-Bolden, Director of New York’s Skin Specialty Dermatology. Look for one with antioxidants, the skin’s major defense against free radicals and stress, and pentapeptides, which are a must-have when it comes to boosting collagen, the support structure that gives skin a firm, youthful appearance. Don’t worry about spending a fortune on the ingredients; one of Cook-Bolden’s favorites is Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum, a sheer formula whose small molecules can dive deep into pores. For best results, apply to freshly washed skin; follow with sunscreen or moisturizer to lock in hydration.
5. Sanitize your Smartphone. According to a Stanford University study, that iPhone you can’t keep your hands off of can get more germ-infested than a toilet in a subway bathroom. In fact, the glass touchscreens on mobile devices are so good at spreading viruses that sharing them may be almost as bad as sneezing in someone’s face. Here’s a scary thought: All those germs land right on your cheek and jawline every time you chat away, causing pimples and irritation. To keep your phone (and face) bacteria-free, wipe it down with an antibacterial wipe like Clorox Disinfecting Wipes a few times a day.
6. Put your skin stash in proper order. The sequence in which you apply your products could be even more important than the products themselves. Reach for those with the most active ingredients as soon as you wash and pat skin dry. “These are the most powerful, so you want them to come into direct contact with your skin,” says Syed Amiry, a dermatologist practicing in Reston, Virginia. If you’re using more than one active product (like an antioxidant serum and Retin-A), start with the thinner one. “Anything that’s water soluble should go first, followed by the product that’s thicker and creamier. If you do it in reverse, the heavier cream will block the ingredients of the lighter one from penetrating the skin, so they won’t have any impact.” If you need moisturizer, it’s next up in line, followed up by—what else?—sunscreen each morning.
7. Drop dairy from your diet (even that little bit in your latte). ”Dairy products—even those that are organic—contain cow hormones that stimulate your oil glands and your pores, leading to acne,” explains Wu. Beware of hidden dairy in foods like salad dressing, protein bars, and shakes. And if you have to go there, stick to skim. “The hormones are concentrated in the fat, so it’s your best option.”
8. Start using retinol. ”Everyone should use retinol,” says New York dermatologist Doris Day. “It has decades of clinical data to support its efficacy, helps skin cell turnover, and boosts collagen production to keep skin firm and youthful.” Most dermatologists agree that if you’re only going to use one anti-aging product, prescription Retin-A (and even over-the-counter versions like RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 or Olay Pro-X Deep Wrinkle Treatment) is the magic bullet, and can even reverse abnormal and cancerous growth, among other forms of sun damage. “It has great anti-inflammatory effects, which is why it’s as effective at treating acne as it is at treating wrinkles and other signs of aging,” adds Amiry.
9. Hit the sack early. We know, you’ve heard it all before, but it’s called beauty sleep for a reason. “Sleep deprivation lowers circulation, which is why you look pale and washed out if you only get a few hours,” says Amy Wechsler, one of only two U.S. physicians board-certified in both dermatology and psychiatry. It’s also the best time to rejuvenate your skin. “Your body’s cellular renewal team has the night shift, so this is when you want to equip your skin with as many nutrients and hydrating ingredients it needs to do a fine job,” she says.
10. Exfoliate for smaller-looking pores. It’s amazing how something so tiny can feel so huge, but enlarged pores are one of the most common beauty complaints. “Pores appear larger when they’re filled with dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and keratin, a protein that lives on the surface of skin,” explains Amiry. “Remove those plugs, and they seem to shrink.” To clear out the gunk, start exfoliating regularly with daily applications of salicylic and glycolic acid, like those in Murad Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel. Then add in microdermabrasions (like Physicians Formula Derm@Home Mineral Microdermabrasion System) once or twice a week to clear the dead surface cells. To keep pores from getting even bigger as you age, practice safe sun. “Sun damage breaks down collagen, which can affect pore size as well.”
Have you ever wondered why after a break-up, a person normally jumps into another relationship? In fact, there are those who wait for a potential relationship before they leave the person they are with. If you are one of these people, I want to warn you of how dangerous this can be and how it can damage your future relationships.
The biggest factor on why a person jumps from one relationship to the next is the fear of being alone. Every other reason stems from this main one. And until a person is content being alone, she will not be ready to be with someone else. I will explain to you why.
When a person’s security is anchored on other people or things, this person will crumble when what she is holding on to fails. She will end up co-dependent, controlling, or a nervous wreck. Unless a person’s security is anchored on God, none of her relationships will succeed. To establish security in God requires an intimate relationship with Him. This is the only way anyone can be confident in who she is in God. And to build an intimate relationship with God takes undivided time alone with Him. Now how can this be possible if a person is consumed with being in a relationship?
To make matters worse, a break-up brings pain and hurts with it, no matter how peaceful the break-up was. This requires healing, and healing takes time. When a person jumps into another relationship soon, the hurts have not even healed yet. They were just brushed under the rug, with the other unhealed hurts from the past, and eventually it will resurface, worse than before, damaging the relationship again. This cycle will continue until you give yourself a break and let God heal you.
Imagine yourself wearing a white shirt with no stain. Then you get into a relationship and the shirt now has a little stain. Then you moved to the next and your shirt has more stain. Then you moved to another one and your shirt has greater stains. Each time you move from one to the next, you don’t wash the stain on your shirt. So the shirt just gets dirtier and dirtier and the stains become more difficult to remove.
This is what happens to your heart as you move from one relationship to the next. And honestly, God doesn’t even want you to have many relationships. He only wants you to have one, and that is with your future husband.
How I wish I knew this then. I would have avoided all those pains and hurts and would have healed earlier. This is the very reason why I am warning you, because of the very things I’ve been through.
I was 14 when I met the man who eventually became my first husband. I was too young to even be in a relationship, let alone a serious relationship. I experienced a lot of hurts at a very young age. At 19 I got pregnant and married. For 10 long years I experienced hurt after hurt, betrayal after betrayal, to the point that I’ve learned to numb my heart. Barely out of the relationship and before my divorce, I got involved with another man. This went on for several years until I surrendered my life to Jesus. In fact, it still took about 2 years after I got reborn when I finally got out of this relationship. I never even got the chance to mourn for my first relationship let alone to heal from all my hurts since I was 14. Then I had to deal with that other relationship I had and all the hurts that went with it. Praise God I didn’t jump into another relationship right away after that. God didn’t allow me to. He didn’t give me any opportunities because He wanted me to know Him first, fall in love with Him, be intimate with Him, and build my security in Him.
You see, when I met my ex-husband, I was looking for some security in a man that I never felt from my father. Instead of finding security, I experienced fear and doubt, which damaged the marriage. I sought security again in my next relationship but instead of finding it, I experienced more insecurity. The man could not even marry me because he was still married. What a mess I got myself into.
Insecurities … fears … hurts … doubts … anger … these were feelings I had buried deep into the recesses of my hearts that would have exploded violently had God not saved me. I remember almost having a nervous breakdown in that first marriage (I can’t even call it a marriage, honestly) but I suppressed all my feelings by rebelling against my ex-husband and the relationship. Then in that second relationship I remember breaking down one day as well, but again, I tried to self-medicate through alcohol, cigarettes, parties, my career, and anything that could distract me. And mind you, in between those two relationships, and while the relationships were still going on, I had some extra-curricular activities going on the side as my act of rebellion. That surely added to all the anger and negative feelings I already had in my heart.
I was dead tired when I finally surrendered my life to Jesus. I was ready for change. This was the main reason why I could not even get myself to think of being in any relationship. My heart stopped beating. Jesus had to resuscitate me and He gave me an open-heart surgery and put a brand new heart in me. The whole process from the surgery - to the heart transplant - to the healing and recovery was tedious and painful. Yet, it was necessary not only for my total healing but also for my preparation for my promised man.
You don’t have to rush. You don’t have to fear being alone. God knows what He is doing. Don’t try to put matters into your own hands or it will never work. In fact, it will just get worse. Surrender your life to Jesus. He is the only One who can heal you. Let Him give you a brand new heart. Get to know Him and fall in love with Him. Get all the love from Him that no man ever gave you and no man can ever give you. Soak and bask in His love. Then you will not even think of being with any man. And when that time comes, then He will know that He has you completely. He will know that no one can take His place in your heart. Only then will He finally give you to the man He has set aside for you.
Sa isang relasyon hindi mo talaga maiwasan na may mag judge sayo.Pero hindi dapat yun ang reason para igive-up mo yung taong pinakamamahal mo.Hindi ka dapat paapekto sa mga nangyayari sa paligid mo.Bagkus,dapat pang tumibay ang pagsasama niyo kasi mahal na mahal niyo ang isat-isa.
So ganito nga ang nangyari.Since ldr kami ng boyfriend ko ngayon,pinapakita talaga namin kung gaano namin kalove ang isat-isa kahit na malayo kami.Thru fb,ym,skype,viber..name it..hindi ako nahihiya na magpost ng mga sweet things sa kanya kahit sa fb. So itong mga kamag anak ko,ewan ko ba kung bakit masyado silang nangingialam saken. Sinabihan ba naman ako na illusion lang daw ang nararamdaman ko kay Jerome. At wag daw akong magmamahal ng sobra kasi masasaktan lang daw ako. Ano bang alam nila sa nararamdaman ko?Badtrip lang talaga.Ang worst pa dun nilagay nila yun sa wall ko at nabasa ni jerome. Sobrang nasaktan yung tao,at pati din ako nasaktan sa sinabi nila.
Wala namang perfect pagdating sa love eh.Masasaktan at masasaktan ka,parte yun ng pagmamahal.Kaya ipapakita namin sa kanila na mali sila sa kanilang akala sa amin ni jerome.That fairytales does exist.Darating man kami sa point na manghina sa relationship namin kasi sa problema at pagsubok hindi yun ang dahilan para pakawalan namin ang isat-isa.In fact,we have a big God na umaalalay sa amin.Ipaglalaban ko siya until the end.
“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.”
