The Other Prodigal Son

​​11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them. 13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went […]

Week 2. A song that reminds you of your most recent ex-boyfriend/girlfriend

It’s week 2 of our weekly challenge and I must admit that I’m quite excited to share the song I’m thinking about for this topic. Well…. Since I never had an ex-bf, I’ll just share the song that reminds me of ex-office crush, haha! I used to sing this song in my head whenever I see him pass by in front of me (literally) to buy something from my officemate’s store. Just listen to the […]

Day 21. How would you pitch a reality show about yourself? To what network?

  I’m not sure if I get this question right so I’ll just try to answer this question from the top of my mind. There’s this reality show that I used to watch back in my childhood days. It’s called Extra Challenge, a local TV program in our country, and was hosted by news anchor Paolo Bediones and former Ms. Universe Runner-Up Miriam Quiambao. The show was a reality competition that features local celebrities who […]

Week 1: A song from Your Childhood

Welcome to our first week of the challenge! I got pressured by Lynai’s Week 1 post so here’s mine (haha!). I don’t know why but I remember this is one of my favorite songs back in my elementary days. My older relative introduced it to me and taught me the lyrics and I’ve never forgotten this song up until now. Yesterday’s Dream We are the children of yesterday’s dream We are the promise of the […]

Why I No Longer Consider Myself a Hardcore Environmentalist

Okay, before you make any violent reaction, let me tell you first that I still do believe that we should take care of the environment. First, because it is a God-given mandate to all human beings to be stewards of God’s creation. And second, because the state of our environment can really affect the state of our well-being. Last Friday, I attended a meeting and was glad to see my former officemate there. We used to work together in […]

I’m Keeping You at Arm’s Length

I’m keeping you at arm’s length Because it’s the right thing to do, Because I believe it’s not yet the appointed time. I’m not even sure if I’m making the right judgment. I’m keeping you at arm’s length Because I don’t want things to get messy. Closer means risky and risk unguarded can lead to disaster. I’m keeping you at arm’s length Because I’m busy, I’m busy trying to get my life together And keep […]

Day 20. Describe your most difficult breakup and what you learned from it

As someone who’s NBSB (no boyfriend since birth), I don’t think I can say much about this topic. But for the sake of finishing this challenge (my gosh Cary, it’s so long overdue!!), let me try again. As earlier said, break up is a foreign experience to me. I think the closest thing to break up that I’ve experienced was when I learned that ex-office crush and I will no longer be officemates. I was […]

Will I Ever Fall for a Beast?

So yesterday, I finally gave in to the hype and watched the classic Beauty and the Beast. I love the story of Beauty and the Beast because it teaches us the lesson of not looking in the outer appearance to see the worth and beauty of a person but to look for the beauty within. Stories like Beauty and the Beast and The Little Prince, where the famous line “what is essential is invisible to the eyes” came from, are just examples of the tools […]
