Sunday Reflection: It is Noble to be Humble

PhotobucketHello and welcome to another edition of Sunday Reflection. Before I start I would like to thank those bloggers who join the launching of this meme last Sunday. Now, we are on our second week, and this week’s scripture is Philippians 2:1. "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves” A friend described me as a meek person. What he actually doesn’t know, is the other side of me who aimed to be always on top of the list. Someone who gets noticed and someone who will stand out from everyone. That was one of my burning desires until I realize that when pride comes, then comes disgrace. I was a person who easily get annoy to people who don’t behave according to my standards. But later on, humility reminds me that everybody is different, that each person has a unique role, and is therefore given different tastes, desires, abilities. I was once a person who complains a lot when my parents gave me loads of house hold chores. An employee who complains a lot when my boss gives me a task that is beyond my job description and a person

Sleeping Routine Challenge

I’m almost on my second week in establishing a bedtime routine for my little one. We usually rock him to sleep and I don’t want to keep it that way since its hard for me coz he is growing fast and getting heavier everyday. And so, to begin with, I said no to rocking baby Z to sleep last week. I have also talked to him about that and it seems that he understand what I have told him as he is responding positively. The routine I’m trying to establish is probably a common way. Perhaps a lot of mommies have been doing the same routine. I start with giving him a sponge bath before going to bed regardless of the dirt and dress him up for the sleep. Then I let him lie on the bed, and usually he does his crawling and rolling rounds. It would take 10 – 20 minutes depending on his mood. And when he gets tired he will cry. And that’s the time that I will give him something to sooth him, normally a bottle of milk and later water. And when he is done, he will throw the bottle and will lie on

BlogEoz is Pinoy Expat Blog Nominee

I was really surprise when I saw my husband’s profile in Pinoy Expat Blog Nominee expat division album in PEBA’s FB account. I know my husband is joining a contest in PEBA, but I was not expecting that he will be one among those eleven nominees. He is not really much into blogging but he maintains two blogs one of which have an own domain. His got into blogging when I embraced blogging two years ago. Of course he is not a pro blogger, neither of us. Perhaps, we just have developed a new passion in our heart and that is blogging. For those of you who do not know PEBA, it is a non-profit, non-stock organization of international Filipino Bloggers located from different parts of the world & duly registered in Securities & Exchange Commission and Bureau of Internal Revenue. It has grown to have representative & liaison offices in the Middle East, South East Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe and North Africa. This is a great exposure for BlogEoz which I’m proud of. I hope that he could make it to the finals. While it is great to desire to win, the exposure brought to BlogEoz is enough to

On his way to sitting down

On is fifth month, we started teaching him to sit down and He was able to sit for a very short time and then he falls. And as time goes, he continues learning sitting down until he learned to sit down with minimal support. And just recently on his seventh month, he starts to straighten his back while sitting down. Though he can’t sit by himself yet, he is now able to sit and play for longer period. The funny part is when he sucks his feet while sitting down which leads him to fall down. I was also surprise to see him sitting down on a high chair during his day out with his grandma. I myself was still hesitant to let him sit on a high chair but it was great seeing him sitting down there for the first time. Does it mean that we must have a chair at home very soon? Hooray! Way to go for our little one. I know, very soon he will be able to sit down on his own.

Sunday Reflection: Close to You

Scripture: Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4:8 This scripture have motivated me to spend time with the lord. Though I have short comings of this matter I still have to say that spending time with the Lord is fulfilling and rewarding.  It may not be easy to grasp at first but once you have establish a relationship with God, you may find that the highlight of your day is the time you have with God. The Bible tells us that we were created to have fellowship with God and if you find it hard to do so, you may start by dwelling on this scripture. Find time with God and once you established the relationship you will discover that it is easier to find out what God wants for your life. You can get off your mind from the world and worries around you and focus on God and the things that God wants you to do plus you will find it easier to worship Him. You will also discover that the more you spend time with Him, the more you will love Him! Still, this serves as a motivational scripture to me,

Curiosity at Seventh

As he grows he is meddling on things around him. He grabs everything that he sees as long as it’s reachable, and if he got it, he will examine it for a while and instantly it will land in his mouth and I will be repeating my dialog “no! that’s not for your mouth!’ while pulling it out from his mouth. He is now starting to get curious on thing s and even people around him. He’ll be staring for quite a while if there is someone unfamiliar to him. Pulling someone’s hair is also his hobby and as usual he will put it in his mouth as if it’s a food for him. At the moment he’s got more to add on his milestone. He started to become bubbly. He talks a lot of T’s. Tita, tata, ate, titi. He is able to walk with the walker. He is now able to straighten his back while seating, and can seat longer. He can also twist her trunk while seating. Learning to crawl, and starting to lift his body through a push up position. He also loves seeing himself in the mirror; he would always through a big smile when

Daily Life Quote

Daily Bread motivates and inspired me everyday, and a life quotes gives me something to ponder and embrace a realization and reflections from it. I have this fondness over life quotes coz it somehow gives a perception of how life should be dealt with. And today’s quote is from Anais Nin, and it says that "Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." Soo true. It goes by saying that your life success can be measure by one’s courage. By all means, lets all be courageous and if you can’t have that traits, remember that you could always ask God to help you have it, and for sure in His due time, it will be granted. And so, lets go on and have a courageous life!

The Tenth Floor

The moment I went out the house this morning, I know I was heading to the tenth floor of one world building in Makati to arrange our visa. I took a cab that brought me to my destination, enter the building and the elevator and press 10. At the tenth floor is the Malaysian Embassy where we process my husband’s as well as my visa two years ago. At the moment I am processing my son’s including my visa for our next trip to Kuala Lumpur. In just a few minutes, I heard a ring which means I have reached the tenth floor. Then the elevator door opened. I was hesitant to alight from the elevator but since other passengers are waiting for the door to shut, I went down the elevator even if I saw the whole tenth floor was black out. Only a small light coming from a window  illuminates the place and it helped me see the abandoned Malaysian Embassy. I immediately press the elevator down but it was taking too long. I was all alone in that floor where there is no light. As I wait for the elevator, I then felt frightened as I was

The Traveling Infant

Most of us want to travel and explore our wonderful universe. And just like his mom, our little one has been traveling since he was three months old. I remember his first flight experience; I was excited and at the same time anxious about what will happen. I thought it was hard traveling with an infant but fortunately as long as you are well prepared you don’t have to worry about it. You will enjoy it instead. I even asked the pilot to have a picture with baby Z as a remembrance of his first flight experience. [caption id="attachment_537" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Baby Z's 1st flight experience"][/caption] He’s been flying back and forth from Manila to Kuala Lumpur. And how was he during the flight? Well, I am glad that he doesn’t through tantrums onboard. He is behaving well except when he feels hungry and sleepy. And to relieve the ear pressure I give him something to drink during take off and landing. Our recent trip back to Manila from Tacloban was the one he enjoyed the most. Through out the one hour flight he was awake and playing plus laughter’s which we actually enjoyed.  Of course, I was busy capturing
