Recently, a move by some senators to call for the resignation of the Department of Health Secretary has brought mixed feelings to different people. Although the quality, quantity, and timeliness of efforts and programs of government leave room for improvement, as my colleague said, the timing seems off. Thus the motive and appropriateness are questioned. … Continue reading CHANGE ME
We hope for perfection, joy, and best outcomes. But we commit and see mistakes, feel sad, and attain less than the ideal. We may have perfect moments but for how long? A few seconds or a couple of minutes maybe. The realization of an imperfect life always kicks in. Because that is life—imperfect. We go … Continue reading Life is not perfect- what’s New?
PONDERSOME PREACHING 1 There are preachings that move us to the core during which we can't even take notes. And there are those that give new knowledge and insight that one can't help but take notes. Some preachings make us cry and laugh at the same time. Some give us peace (You mean make you … Continue reading PONDERSOME PREACHING 1
SOME KIND OF PONDERFUL (NINANG PONDERINGS 3) 1. If Love should be spelled T I M E? Shouldn't we spell time as L O V E.. Fair enough? 🙂 "So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:13) 2. Joy is living the hope ahead. … Continue reading SOME KIND OF PONDERFUL

I needed more effort to be liked. I don't give … Continue reading GOOD VIBES.. BAD VIBES (Vibes tayo Ninang ha!)

On my way to answer an emergency medical call, I was detoured to another direction due to a marathon around the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) complex early Sunday morning. I thought the new route … Continue reading WAY TO GO! (Where Ninang?)

An employee steals. Lovers elope. A mother curses. Unforgiveness. Enough!!! They need more. More effort to show appreciation. More patience. More understanding. … Continue reading MORE!
WHERE DO BROKEN HEARTS GO? (Can they find their way home Ninang?) I have never broken up with any guy except my husband. Then of course we made up; broke up, made up, broke up, made up (how many times Ninang?? "I don't know how many times exactly!")...broke up weeks before the wedding, made up … Continue reading WHERE DO BROKEN HEARTS GO? (Can they find their way home Ninang?)
CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON! "War Freak!" -- I can still hear my classmate calling me when we were first year Highschool. Born in the land of "balisong" with "kapeng barako" (caffeine!) as soup to my rice in the morning; surrounded by people who speak like they are shouting, and having relatives whose past time may be … Continue reading CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON!
