What have you learned this month?
- From the Daily Reflection today: "The fast-paced world we live in today often tells us to plan our lives around making money, achieving success, becoming famous, etc. The world also encourages us to follow all our desires and believes that, if we follow what we want, we will be happy.

We go to church every Sunday to attend Mass and even pray but we must not forget that many of the things around us can take us far away from God. The readings from the prophet Job reminds us to allow God to do His will in our lives. We are invited to trust in God’s wisdom above our own. Man, no matter what he has achieved in his life, cannot surpass the wisdom of God so he must bow down before the all-knowing and all-seeing God of goodness and light.

In today’s world of the internet and almost immediate communication and sharing of ideas, Jesus invites us to share the Good News with others. We have the opportunity to share the Good News of our Lord at home, in the workplace, in the university, etc. to everyone – family, friends, strangers and even non-Christians.

Though many may not be receptive to our good intentions, we must not lose heart because it is not us they reject but the Lord himself. We let God judge them for their refusal to believe. On our part, we must stay firm and do our duty as workers in the Lord’s vineyard. Then at harvest time, we will reap the fruits of our labor. "

Yes, I'm craving! And I want one! Ugh!

2015 Singapore/Batam Trip: Changi International Airport

For our flight back to Manila, we went to Changi International Airport. Since we took TigerAirways, we went to Terminal 1. It was our first time so we were so happy to explore this part of the airport!

And look, we even had time for coffee...

Thanks for the wonderful memories, Singapore. Bye, for now!

Will we see you again? Of course!

What is Stuff for You?

2015 Singapore/Batam Trip: Our Last Lunch in Singapore

Inspite of sleeping late for the NYE, we still felt so energized for the next day. After all, it was the first day of the year!

So after checking out in our hotel and settling down our luggages at the store room, off we went to have out last lunch in Singapore before going to the airport.

The lunch was definitely gooood!

Thanks to my sister for the treat! ♥

2015 Singapore/Batam Trip: New Year's Eve in Singapore

Ah, finally, after a quick dinner and window shopping at Orchard Road, we went back to our hotel and waited for NYE.

We explored the roofdeck, and wow, it's like God planned for us to discover it, we had a wonderful spot to watch the fireworks.

With this wonderful NYE fireworks plus the whole family. What more can I ask for?

Best New Year's Eve, so far! ♥♥♥

Never Give Up in Achieving Your Goals.

"With hard work comes great reward."

This is what I've been thinking about a lot lately. This saying because I've noticed that people nowadays, particularly the kids don't like doing the hard work. I've been raised differently though. My parents made sure that my brothers, sister and I value hard work. We would study hard, study as much as we could to pass our exams, have good grades and finish school. My parents made sure that we understand that without hard work, success won't be possible.

This is also true to achieving your goals. Without hard work, you won't be able to reach your goals. That is what happened to the company who developed the most interesting game to date, Wisdomantics. Guess what, they are celebrating their 10th anniversary today. YES, TODAY!

Woot! Woot! Congratulations Wisdomantics for reaching the 10 year milestone!

I've been told that it started with a vision. It was a beautiful vision, that is. Then it eventually became a reality. Although there had been several challenges, roadblocks, and revisions along the way, the maker still pursued his dreams until the game fully manifested! And now 10 years in the industry! Wow! Pretty amazing, right?

And guess what? I'm pretty sure there are more in store for us gamers! So, hang in there and watch out for more updates about my favorite game soon! (*wink*)
