now there's a novel plot twist...

As you may have noticed, I have a new layout. Uuuuh, this is a product of being a bum. I know I still have to practice and improve on making layouts. I’m no good at this. And yes, from light to sort of dark colors.

Disclaimer: Image-packed entry.

And, i wanted to post about random stuff. No church event yet to write a long entry on. But there is something BIG to write about. Real BIG...

September 21, 2008

Mark September 21 on your calendars fellow LaSallians and gear up your ANIMO as we cheer out loud to our victory or not over our utmost BLUE rival.


But honestly, I’m really not confident on this game, haha! I HEYTCHU CHRIS TIU (for the mean time, haha!) The past games of DLSU were uuuh...mmmkay i’ll not rant. hello OPTIMISM. Hahaha! And also, I wanna say ANGAS ka MANGAHAS!!! Rofl. We know about his 20 pts during the DLSU-FEU game yesterday last Sept 14. Kudos!


The LaSalle green archers are so great! They know the games that they should bag the win. I suddenly recalled last year’s 14-0 standing of UE that was actually worthless as you know that La Salle still won – UAAP 70 Basketball CHAMPION. And now, there could only be one. And as what I always say on ADMU-DLSU games...

ARCHERS here to shoot EAGLES down.


I pray that the archers would win this game. I maybe bias over here, but the greean archers fight and win with a heart and with the ANIMO and not just for the sake of bagging the champion and brag about it after (bias nga, haha!). But we do have the bragging rights after winning or after being the champion, right?!

ARCHERS, one BACK-to-BACK please!!!

PROBLEM: I STILL DON’T HAVE TICKET FOR THAT SEPT.21 GAME. Hello MyLasalle mail?! Why aren’t we receiving emails yet of scheduled reservations of tix??

I know this is soooo one week ago, but I so love the twist that occurred on GG's season 2 episode 2. And I can't wait for torrent files for the 3rd episode!

Gossip Girl: What’s this? Chuck’s date and Blair’s date are mother and son? And Nate and Blair are exes? And Nate and the mother are in a book club? Now there’s a novel plot twist.

Blair: I thought you were just a callow social-climbing former swimsuit model who married above her station and was enslaved by her own insecurities.

Blair: Oh my effing god!


And because I'm spending 100% 99.9999999% of my weekdays at home since the day I've become a professional bum ^_^, i'm online 70% of the time and guess what? Yaaah, i'm visiting Plurk once in a while. So why don't you just

Click the image :D
and help me reach Nirvana... :P


There, I'm on the list thus I WOULD ALREADY BE GRADUATIIIIIIING!!!

Yeah, right, I won't receive any award. But I can edit it. haha! Graduating and receiving your diploma is already an award and the "awards" are just bonuses. I thank God for what I have achieved and what I am to achieve. Graduation is, as what many has put, just the beginning of yet another career and awards has already lined up getting set to be claimed. :P Plus, I want that greatest award -- far beyond human imagination... :D Somewhere up there. :)

Last Friday (sept 12), me and my friends went to my bestfriend's birthday celebration. I've known her for 18 years. We've been classmates from nursery to 4th yr HS. And I know our friendship would still go a long a way. I thank God for blessing me a bestfriend as sweet and nice as someone like Claudine Joy.

merie, julie, CLAUDINE, & beng


I'm sort of afraid on this coming Sunday. No, not about the DLSU-ADMU game. It's about the deliverance thing. Most of us think we are not yet ready. And I will just shut my mouth up.

Told you it would be random...

You Oh Lord make the sun shine and the moon light in the night sky. You give me breath and all Your love. I give my heart to You because...
I can't stop falling in love with You...

Who am I that you are mindful of me & Soundtrack of my summer...

I almost forgot to post this since the day I wrote these entries, I had no internet connection, so, I'm just posting this now...
About: Aug 31 and BLG's mini concerts

AUGUST 31, 2008

The last day of August was astoundingly blastful (eh?!?!)

First – Praise & Worship Celebration

Babad... sa presensya mo.... Babad.. sa Iyong salita...

Magdiwang ang bawat nilikha, bilang pagpupuri sa Diyos na dakila, gamitin ang buong katawan, upang Siya ay papurihan!

... and many more songs! Obviously, the songs sang are all in Filipino. The right way to celebrate Praise & Worship on the last day of Buwan ng Wika is to sing songs on our native language. I’m always looking forward to every P&W celebration, even every Sunday’s P&W. I always want to sing praises, to worship, to shout, to dance to jump, under the anointing of the Spirit and knowing that the Most High appreciates what you’re doing for Him – for the joy of the Lord is my strength! Yun yung tinatawag na masarap ang feeling (it’s what you call the feeling is delicious ^_^ nice) Also, it’s lovely to look around and see the people of God in white dancing & singing like crazy – even the elders! And the youth... we were in front, near the altar and we were together and we were singing and we were dancing and we were jumping because we are insane people! We know right?! We needed to attend the 6:30 AM soaking so we rather attended the first service and we ate our early lunch at SM during the second service.

Second – the Special No.

I love last Sunday’s special no.! WL5voice’s performance was a superb! Ok, so, at first we were also curious of who’s this WL5voice?!?! Then later on, we have found out that they were our worship leaders, there were 5 of them that’s why WL5. Haha! Basta ang galing galing nila! (They’re so great!) I love the blending of their voices and seeing our worship leaders united in one power-packed performance, singing a medley of the most beautiful Tagalog worship songs (though I don’t even know the titles, haha!) and doing rotations on stage and the climax end part brought us, the congregation/audience, into a standing ovation! It is a once-in-a-blue-moon performance and chance as well. It was actually the first time they did this. So the youth were shouting MORE!!! Haha!

Lastly – YU2g 1st Evangelistic Youth Service

We thank the Holy Trinity for His manifestation last Sunday. For me, it is the best youth service YU2G ever had. We weren’t able to meet a count of 50 souls but 42 isn’t bad, right? And we pray that this 42 would continue to walk now on His path as they have received Christ in their hearts. The service started one hour late because we tried to invite more souls from the nearest mall and we were able to invite 5. And then the service took off with an opening prayer of course followed by a body-twisting game.

Then we had the praise and worship which was a WOW! Exousia (the band) prepared for this mentally, physically and most especially spiritually. They even have to practice/sleep overnight Friday night to early Saturday morning for this. Some did some fasting and this time they really were overhauled bringing them back to the most essential ‘gizmo’ of a band that leads a praise & worship – the HEART of WORSHIP – not thinking of who are watching, who are listening, how’s their performance, their talent, not all of these but they are on stage only for one thing – to GLORIFY HIM! Indeed, it was evident that service, the Spirit favoured them and is with them, with us. The line up was good for the ‘newcomers’. The P&W started with the conditioning by singing Heart of Worship. Then we sang Friend of God, we, with the move of the Holy Spirit went in front to do the actions of this particular song and some of the newcomers responded, and we know it’s not because of us. And then followed by the song Dancing Generation and this time it was the dancers who stood in front to dance the steps. Then the worship songs included Mighty to Save and Til I See You. It was wonderful wonderful wonderful!

The Word of God through Pastora Jenet was next in line. We chose her because she’s a frivolous pastor knowing the attention span of the young people, not to mention the newcomers. True enough, the Word of God wasn’t boring even for them. Ptra. Jenet was able to relay the message effectively to them, even making use of a movable board so she could draw illustrations. After which, we showed them a video clip of the modern version of what Jesus did on the cross and I’m blessed to see their reactions. I know their hearts were touched because I even saw some wiped some tears and I pray that from then on they would continue to realize God’s mercy, God’s loving grace for us and the proper way to respond. And then the most vital part of this service – the 42 souls receiving Christ in their hearts – praise God. Souls that are reunited to the Father, and hopefully hearts that were totally surrendered.

It didn’t end there! We still sang Friend of God (one song only because of the time constraint). And we had special numbers – one by Khrizel’s singing of Paramore’s song My Heart (yes, it is more of a secular song, but the band intentionally wrote this as a worship song) and Lovely sang Above All which brought cheers and standing ovation from the audience! By the way Lovely Grace (nice name noh?) is our administrator pastor’s 7-year old daughter. After which we had our merienda and chit-chatting with them.

(more photos of this service HERE)

My heart is filled with joy and with praises! I know each YU2G did their part but I know it was God, most of all, who was present all throughout the service that moved in each one of us. I pray for the continuous longing and thirsting of each YU2G. And I thank the Lord for continuously using me and I’m shouting MORE!!!

Who am I that You are mindful of me
That You hear me when I call
Is it true that You are thinking of me
How You love me it's amazing

And because I'm a fan I love BoysLikeGirls' songs...

Yesterday Last Sept. 3, I spent my first day of being a bum by going to Boys Like Girls’ mini concert at ATC (Alabang Town Center) with Julie, Julo, Dada & Marz. I was actually saddened by the situation. But hey, the concert was fun with BLG singing most of their songs that I love. It’s just that, the young people there. How I really wish to see them with the same hype on an event not like that. Ok, so I’ll stop – no one would get me anyway, haha! Anyhoo, moving on, it was indeed a MINI CONCERT because they only sang around 7-8 songs.

5 mins. til midnight
Dance Hall Drug
Heels Over Head
Broken Man
Learning to Fall
Great Escape

BLG were throwing guitar picks, mineral water – opened bottles of mineral water actually, and after their last song they threw away the drum sticks, their towels, and even the paper were their line-up was written. Gah, Martin and Paul are love! Haha!

After their concert, we hung out at our ever dearest McDo (oh puhleeez, transfat! Julo was craving for McDo!) and went back to ATC to shoot some photos. We actually waited for the mall to close. Also, we followed went to BLG's mini concert at Glorietta. Those really rich VIP kiddos! The passes were supposedly for US not yours! We went there early (as in early) hoping to get passes but we haven't got any. BUT (again) we found a spot good enough to be like we got passes. Bad side is no meet & greet for us (insert annoyed face here haha!) Also, good thing that we decided to just stay where we're seated because they really soundcheck-ed so early, they themselves...!!! Dada has this I'm learning to PAUL fall small poster or banner or whatever and she showed it up and Paul, yes PAUL, noticed her, and smiled at her and WAVED at her and then Dada had gone sooo crazy... Same song set list like in ATC only with Let Go added.

BTW, I had dinner with Martin Johnson inside his hotel suite at Intercon hotel. He's such a sweet guy...
(oh please wake me up)

Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer, do you know you're unlike any other? You'll always be my thunder, and I said Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors I don't wanna ever love another... You'll always be my thunder...

I'm Now a Professional BUM...

Finally finally finally at long long last! The approval sheet of our thesis had been signed! {ok so this was supposedly posted last Saturday} Let me hear some woot! And Let me hear some praise God! God is great! God is good! Amen? Amen! (haha, all giddied up here) Now I could finally say “Advance Happy Graduation Day” & “Congratulations!”. Why not?! I also got my course cards last Tuesday and yesh yesh, I passed ‘em all! Even those that I thought I would fail! Wow! I would really be graduating! Plus, we had a 3.0 (in La Salle, 4.0 is the highest grade not a 1.0) in our thesis, it was really unbelievable and unexpected! Thank God!!! Graduation!!! Here I come!!!

And yes, I just realize how blessed I am. I thank the Lord God for never ever failing me though at some point I thought He failed me, but He did not, it was all part of His great plans for me. I super super praise Him. All glory, honor and adoration to Him! He’s been my support, my back-up, actually MY ALL. For three years and 1 term He has been with me in my college life! Studying in La Salle for a person like me was not easy, but with God all things ARE POSSIBLE! I’m also thankful of my two thesis-mates, Jose & Candy, for being so considerate to me, for being so nice despite my blunders. I’m thankful of all the people I’ve met in La Salle, I know it’s not an accident that God allowed me to meet them. And the list goes on!!!

Some photos to share with you taken on the last course card day.
