I never thought Angels existed in the blogosphere until I knew Kikiamz of Just About Anything, Yah! She’s truly angel to me… She answered my simple wish to have a badge of my own. I never thought my request would be granted in such a short time.. I knew she’s so busy but she took time to make this very beautiful badge. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. God bless your graciousness.

By the way, Kikiamz is hosting Tuesday Couch Potatoes.

Truly a Secret Birthday Party!

Posted on
My hubby got the surprised of his life on his birthday two years ago. I threw a secret party to mark his 40th birthday. It was a 3-month long preparation. It wasn’t easy for me since we are an inseparable couple. I know he can easily read through my mind. What I did was to join forces with his youth core group and my 2 kids. First, we created a group take charge of the Party Supplies and Party Decoration . Second, we compiled a guest list to the party and informed them that it is a surprise one. Second, we hold the party in a place where he will not doubt of something – at our very own house.

On the day of his birthday, I was a little bit anxious something might leak . Me and my kids were at our best performance. What he knew was, we will have dinner at our favorite restaurant and spend the rest of the night watching movie .Halfway to our destination, I told him to go back home since I was able to bring the wrong bag. Because his cellular phone , credit card and my wallet were inside it, he has no choice but to head back home. While he was driving , my son was busy communicating through text with the program coordinator to get everything ready in 5 minutes.

My heart was pounding when we arrived at the gate. As my hubby opened the main door … the lights suddenly turned on and surprised!!!!! Everybody was singing the birthday song at the top of their voices … with matching confetti and balloons. I was surprised too! How did they able to decorate the place and set the table with foods in such a short time? My hubby was truly astounded and amazed that he couldn’t stop thanking me and the rest of the group all throughout the night. It was really a fulfilling celebration for all of us.

I miss my job…

Metro Manila is a booming and blooming place. Construction of Vertical and horizontal structure are everywhere. Skyscraping condominiums and hotels are sprouting in cities like Taguig, Mandaluyong, Pasay and Manila. Seeing those tall buildings reminded me with my work as a Civil Engineer. I have been working inline with my profession for 18 years until I decided to go full time as a mother and as a pastor’s wife. I resigned from my work since I can no longer afford to spend 10 – 14 hrs in the office and field. I want to be a hands-on mother and a helpmate in the ministry my husband was called. Everything was in place when I resigned. My husband’s property was bought at a very reasonable price and God provided us a small business which doesn’t require much of my attention.

Although I no longer practice my profession but there are times when my services were engaged as a consultant. Last month an old colleague discussed with me his water drilling project. He had a problem with his equipments. Its output can not meet the need of the project. If only rigging lifting California is available in our country, that problem would be easily solved. I referred him to some suppliers I knew… but I doubt if he can get a good deal on this as rigging lifting California can offer. As of the moment, I am on the process of looking for the best supplier for his project. Wish me luck!
