It fits my feet # 2: Brown shoes

Brown shoes From a far

Zoomed image

These photos were taken in a jeepney ( when I was bore of simply sitting, hehehe). Here is the catch: the subject did not know that I took some snapshots of her foot wear.

I have seen this kind of shoes worn by characters in old movies, but I do not know how it is called. Anyone who knows how this shoes is called?

Have a nice day!

I received this beautiful message from Ms. Ia. It is a reminder we must keep in mind.

From: GOD
Reference: LIFE

This is God. Today I will be handling All of your problems for you. I do Not need your help. So, have a nice day. I love you.

P.S. And, remember...
If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do Not attempt to resolve it yourself! Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. I will get to it in MY TIME. All situations will be resolved, but in My time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

Should you decide to send this to a friend; Thank you. You may have touched their life in ways you will never know!

Now, you have a nice day.


Let us worry less and put our trust in God. Share this message to your friends too.

Cause of my Frustration

I just read Ms. Roleth's blog entry regarding frustrations. I was able to relate to her to the point of sharing my own frustration here.

So what made me frustrated? It is losing weight. Or Am I? I beg to disagree. However, it alarmed me because there were two people who mentioned that I look thinner these days.

The Instances.

Last April 15th, Sir Randy told me "Ms. Renin, parang mas pumayat ka ngayon?"
I made face.
Sir Melvin, who was with Sir Randy, said "Puyat kasi nang puyat siguro."
"Nakakataba kaya ang mapuyat"
Sir Randy interjected.
I said "Ofcourse not."

I left the issue hanging, but I was really affected because my recent goal is to gain weight and look a bit sturdy. *sigh*

Last Monday, April 20, I saw and chat for a while with Sarah Natanauan, a former co-employee who was then transacting some business in school.

Before I bid my goodbye, she mentioned "Renin,parang mas pumayat ka ngayon?" I answered "Ofcourse not."
What else should my answer be? I do not think I lost weight since I last saw her (which was ages ago).

I have not checked my weight yet --- I actually do not have the heart to do so or I will just be more frustrated. No. No. No. I am frustrated (period) Why will I not be? I am eating more quantity of food (more carbo and protein rich) than usual so I expect to gain more weight (I am tired of being underweight). But why do some people think I look like otherwise? :(

I am finding hard to reach my goal and these two comments did not boost my morale. *sigh* But I will prove them wrong ---hope so, soon...

Now, who says losing weight is the a concern? I do believe it exert a lot of will and effort. But hey, gaining weight is also tough for people like me who have high level of metabolism.

Wake up call.
The observation made by Sir Randy and Sarah reminded me to keep this in mind:"Eat more. Exercise. Gain weight is my goal."

How about you? What makes you frustrated?

P.S. As of April 24: Added in the list of individuals who took notice of my physique is Anthony.

Hello everyone! Back to work (but not feeling so, hehehe... but this is another story) ^_^

Anyway, among my "To do List" I was able to accomlish only three things and left one half-done.

Shown below is the list with the respective remarks (X for unaccomplished, INC for Incomplete, / for Done):

X crochet projects my cell phone case and a tortoise
X tissue paper project: book mark
X scrap book arts and crafts
INC blog articles (just made some notes and collated photos)
/ read novels (a lot)
/ general cleaning of my cabinet (I should do this frequently)
/ organize my files (at last! my files since my first day of employement are now intact)

My creative juices were not active during the four days vacation. I hope they will kick-in on one of the coming sundays...

My To Do List for the Next Four days

Aside from the question "How should I reflect this holy week?" I am also uncertain on which of the following should I do during the four non-working days:
* crochet projects my cell phone case and a tortoise
* tissue paper project: book mark
* scrap book arts and crafts
* blog articles
* read novels
* general cleaning cabinet
* organize my files

Sigh. I guess, it will be a "mood" basis type of decision-making and accomplishment of tasks.

The free VIP ticket I received for the play Reigna guaranteed a front-seat accommodation for me last March 25. Thanks to Arriane!

I opted to watch in the last screening which was at 4:30pm but I still came late due to EE benefits-related reason.

Though late and missed the first two acts, I was still able to catch up with the flow of the story and definitely enjoyed the remaining acts.

I particularly enjoyed the scenes of Christian (the one who played the dumb suitor). He easily made me, or should I say us, laugh with his antics.

Before I left the venue, I asked for a photo op of Christian.(btw, I hope I got his name correct)

FYI: Reigna is written by my bro Chris and was directed by my former org-mate Arriane.

Sand Paper

When people hurt you over and over, think of them like sand paper. They may scratch a bit, but in the end, you will end up polished and they will end up useless.

Loveleen sent me this message thru SMS last night. I repiled with how I perceive the it. We end up discussing our viewpoint regading it.

My viewpoint
There are times when some people may belittle, challenge, hurt, and leave us down and marred. This is excuses no one. I will tell you not to be mad or hurt, because both are the common and expected reaction/s. However, we should not remain angry at the doer of err and over the unpleasant thing itself. Instead, be challenged to prove to yourself and to others that you derserve far better than how you were initailly treated.

Keep in mind:
There are positive things which we may get from the unpleasant things that happen to us. It is a matter of perspective.

This SMS leaves to us two questions:
"Will I let myself be a sand paper most of the time?"
"How am I going to view the hurtings I feel?"

I admit, there are times when I am the sand paper who cause grief to other people. I do not want to be one most of the time.

How about you, how do you perceive a sand paper?
