It was the start of our long weekend :)

Saturday was a remarkable day. Why? it's because of #AlDubBattleForACause. It reached 5 million tweets. Record breaking indeed!

Pero hindi ko yan napanood. I was doing something at that time. I watched it online na lang afterwards.


"Ang tunay na pag-ibig, kahit hindi kayo magkapiling nararamdaman. Ang tunay na pag-ibig, kahit hindi nagkikita, pinapahalagahan at iniisip ang isa't isa! Iniisip ang kabutihan! At hinihintay ang tamang panahon!"  - Lola Nidora 

Sunday morning, we attended the 8:30 am service of CCF Commonwealth.

The message is about the 10th Commandment: Do not covet.

Instagram media by spoken_vessel - The 10th commandment (Exodus 20:17) gives us the instruction to "not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's". When we covet another person's blessings or gifts or even their life path, that mindset we have turns into jealously and selfish desires and as James 3:15 tells us, "jealously and selfishness are not God's kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual and demonic...". Allowing for such things to rule over you WILL lead to sin and spiritual death. In my mind is this: when you sit around upset about the blessings that your fellow brothers or sisters in Christ are receiving, then you are telling God that what He has provided you and is providing you is not good enough for you. Don't be that person. Don't neglect tending to your own garden and allowing for it to die because your eyes are so intently fixated upon another person's garden. Be mindful and thankful of what the Lord has provided you. Because He didn't have to provide you with anything but yet He did and has. Continue pushing onward in faith and remaining thankful for everything He has given you and don't feel forsaken for what you don't have may just not be for you or something even greater than what you desire could be just over the horizon.

Sapul na sapul ako sa message na yan. I think it deserves a separate post.

After church, we had lunch at my cousin's house in Sandigan.

Ate Lovely is my second cousin. Ngayon lang kame nagka-bonding. She's really nice. Kikay din pero cow girl.







Si Chloe photo bomber oh!


Marami kameng nagpag-kwentuhan. Nag-plano na rin kame na mag-swimming one of these days.

4pm, umuwi na kame.



That's it!

I have an extra day off today because it's holiday in the US.

Osha, Duz and I will go to the doctor habang nasa school si Chloe. Papa-check namen yung eye niya because it's irritated/infected. Hindi naman sore eyes, parang may insect bite pero makati at mahapdi daw yung loob. Nagsimula yun Saturday pa lang. Namamaga na ngayon. 

Enjoy your week, loves!
