Nalaman Ko Na Kaya Ko Pala Magmahal Ng Ganun

Each person has its own capacity to love. One may be able to love stronger and deeper than the other. The other, may show love in a language different from his partner. Our capacity would be different based on several factors; this, is what I learned from our the recent launch of 2,000 children in 1,000 hours campaign of World Vision.

World Vision's 2000 in 1000

World Vision’s 2000 in 1000

Mahabang panahon ang 1,000 hours. Maraming pwedeng mangyari. Yung last 2 minutes nga sa basketball, nahahabol pa ni Bal David ang 13 points na kalamangan ng kalaban. Walang impossible.

So how can we achieve this? Una, kailangan natin masukat ang capacity natin na magmahal, para alam natin kung magkano ang kaya natin ibigay.

Capacity To Love is learned.

Showing Moral Support To SEA Games Athletes in 2017

Southeast Asian Games na next week. Kuala Lumpur ang venue. Pupunta sana ako kung wala lang naka assign sa akin na work orders.

It has been rough for the Pinoy athletes this week, after the Gilas winning in basketball, while TNC Pro Team and Execration losses in Dota2; everyone is hungry for a continuous victory, at sana makuha natin ang medals sa Sea Games.

Our athletes need us.

AirAsia sponsors for the 29th SEA Games. Go Pinas! Laban!

Thanks Comco

Thanks Comco

Naalala ko yung mommy ko, nagli-leave pa siya sa work para lang mapanood ako mag sack race sa Intrams ng school. Grabe moral support na ganun. Just like that, AirAsia is inviting us to be supportive to our athletes.

Paano tayo susuporta?

A series of videos made for the #DaretoDream initiativebtell us the challenges and joys of Alyssa Valdez, Jessie Lacuna, and Marestella Torres-Sunang of Volleyball, swimming, and long jump competitions respectively. Michele Gumabao will be hosting the series hosted on Facebook.

A simple comment would raise their morale. Yung pagshare mo rin ng content para makita ng 4,265 friends mo sa fb ay malaking tulong na rin.

Lahat Pwede Bawiin, Pag Sinabi Mo JOKE LANG

Ang pakikipaglaban ay everyday.
Ang Pagsuko ay once lang.
Pero lahat pwedeng bawiin,
Pag sinabi mo, JOKE LANG!

J-O-K-E  L-A-N-G

Napakamakapangyarihan ng dalawang salita na ito. Pwede kang makipagbiruan, o makipagseryosohan, then bitawan mo ang trap card na parang si Yugi-oh – joke lang.

  • Galit na galit ka na sa jowa mo, bigla mong nabitawan yung salitang “BREAK NA TAYO!” Pero hindi mo naman talaga gustong makipag-break, kaya “Joke Lang.”
  • Dudukutan mo dapat yung naka backpack na kuya sa overpass ng Quezon Ave pero lumingon siya, at nahuli niya yung mga daliri mo na nakahawak sa zipper ng bag niya, sasabihin mo na lang, “Joke Lang.”
  • Mainit yung kanin pero gutom na gutom ka na, pagsubo mo ng isang kutsarang kanin, napaso ang dila mo. Iluluwa mo ang kanin, “Joke Lang.”
  • Lumiko ka sa No Left Turn. Nahuli ka ng MMDA, “Joke Lang.”
  • Nakipag-diskusyon ka tungkol sa pagbabalot ng pagkain pag may pinuntahan kang event, pero ginagawa mo rin naman to pag naimbita ka sa fiesta. “Joke Lang.”

Subukan mo gumawa ng mga krimen, tapos sabihin mo, “Joke Lang.” Pag hindi natuwa yung biniro mo, mato-tokhang ka.

Basta ako, seryoso ako… Joke Lang.
