Here on Earth

Friday, Free-day.

The government declared this day to be a Special Non-Working Day due to ASEAN Summit held in Manila. And since it’s not often that we get this almost-long-weekend kind of holiday, I tagged Forester C to Taytay for some thrift-shopping.

I’ve been to Taytay Market once, years ago, and it was not the most pleasant experience since it was too hot to walk around, but I enjoy the shopping experience, since you get to find really cheap clothing items (you just have to make sure you have a quick eye to shop for good ones).

We toured the four clusters of shopping area at Taytay Market. We were sweating, because the temperature was terrible, but we were able to buy quite a lot. I was able to buy thirteen (13) items and my total spending was only P970.00!

What did I buy with Php970.00?

  1. Two pairs of Mickey Mouse printed shorts and tank top
  2. A gray training tights
  3. White spaghetti-strap top
  4. A black romper pants
  5. A polo dress
  6. Training top
  7. Two pairs of shorts
  8. Culottes in pink color
  9. A blouse for my Mom
  10. A black pencil cut skirt
  11.  White printed shirt

I always make it a point to scour the whole area for items to buy, and I buy what I can buy since Taytay area is quite far from where I live. Besides, you wouldn’t need to bring hefty amount of money because you could already buy a lot with your P1,000.00.

I was a bit disappointed though, because I wasn’t able to chance upon some dresses which I can wear to Church or at work, but that gives me enough reason to visit Taytay again.

We reached the place at around 11 am, and we finished walking around at 2:30 p.m. We had lunch in the nearby pizza parlor, and decided to accomplish our bible study session for that day.

(And oh, I dropped by at Robinsons Galeria on my way home, and guess what? I was tricked (by myself) to buying make-ups again! I’ll tell you about it on my next post!)

Here on Earth


Whew. It’s like breathing in some fresh air here, huh. Oh well. This isn’t really my first blog post, but since I decided to delete my old posts (2005- 2016) to have a “fresh start”, this appears to be the first entry.

No, I am not fooling around (April Fool’s day?).

Anyhow, why did I decide to delete every old posts?

Simply because those old posts were all about the old version of me. I am no longer part of that past, and no matter how colorful and crazy those memories were, I don’t think I have to be constantly reminded of how everything were.

No, it wasn’t really that bad. But with  my new life with Christ, nothing in the past should matter. I am looking forward for my unseen future, in this new journey as His follower, and the only thing that matters now is my today and tomorrow with Him.

Here, I would chronicle some things that goes on with my daily life. It may not be as vibrant as you would imagine it to be being His follower. But I hope in this journey, we could help each other grow our faith in Him.

I would still be posting about mundane things, about crazy things that fills my mind, I would still be the crazy, but better, me.

You will read how I fell to the trap of worldly needs, and how I would struggle overcoming my shortcomings, or how often I would forget how faithful God is to me. I would be a weak Christian from time to time, but oftentimes I would be proudly standing on my toes glorifying God. Waiting on Him is a journey, a journey I would love to grow old with.

Life will always be filled with reasons to struggle and encounter pain, but we must find strength in Him. Let Him be our guide, our Lord, until He returns for us.

Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.  You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

James 5:7-8
