My Best Friend's Wedding

One of my closest friends got married last July 2011. It was one of the most memorable weddings I attended. It was simple, elegant ang meaningful. It was a garden wedding and the venue for the ceremony was also the venue for the reception. Things started a little late because of the rain. When it seems that the rain would not stop, they decided to proceed with the ceremony. The beautiful bride walked down the aisle with an umbrella as well as most of the entourage. The couple only invited their closest friends and the good thing about that is, even if it started late and it rained and supper was late, no one complained. In face, I think everybody just had fun and was excited these two hearts finally becoming one. Some of us were soaked as we took pictures under the rain. It was not a traditional wedding. For one, the motif was black and white. Both of them wore Tom's shoes. It was really cute. I loved their wedding. But most importantly, I am so happy that one of my best friends have already found her lifetime partner.

Movies and Lockers

The movies I liked to watch growing up usually revolved around teens coping up with school and the pressures of being accepted. Somehow, their life seem much more exciting compared to my usual routine of waking up, going to school, and going home. My life was so much simpler then. I remember watching those movies and wishing that my school had the same atmosphere as those in the big screen. I used to dream of having my own locker in school. It would have been so convenient. Back in high school, I carried around ten books and I had to bring it everyday. Life then would have been much easier if school lockers were provided.

Now that I am working, I am still wishing the same thing. How I wish our company provides lockers for work. It would be so nice to have a storage area wherein I can put my personal stuff like toiletries, utensils, and extra clothes. Sometimes, going back home to get some stuff takes so much time. Oh well, movies can really give us ideas.

Words that might help

I just want to share an article that I received from a friend. Whatever we are going through, just believe that God is bigger than anything else. Waking up in the middle of the night because of some events in our lives is not good. Once again, I have been reminded that worrying gets us nowhere. So I hope this article can somehow help uplift whatever mood we are in.

Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble,
but it is a "steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout.

Do you know why a Car's WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rearview Mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our
FUTURE. Look Ahead and Move on.

Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it
takes years to write.

All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they
will not last forever. If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last
long either.

Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a
Diamond, don't forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you
always need a Base of Gold!

Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from
above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!

When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities;
when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.

A blind person asked Swami Vivekanand: "Can there be anything
worse than losing eye sight?" He replied: "Yes, losing your vision!"

When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them,
and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone
has prayed for you.

WORRYING does not take away tomorrows' TROUBLES, it takes away
todays' PEACE.

Eat All you Can

Pounds Pounds Go Away and Never Come Back!!! How many of us feel the same way. I remember the movie "Defending Your Life" being starred by Meryl Streep and Alber Brooks. I think I was still in elementary when I saw this movie. I am sure the movie gives a lot of insight about life and death. The characters of Streep and Brooks both die and they go to a place wherein they will be judged if they move forward or sent back home. The place seems like our world and the judging is similar to a courtroom and lawyers are there to defend you.

However, having seen it at such a young age, the thing that most struck me was the food. In that place, you can eat everything you can and never gain a single pound. Another amazing thing for me is the food. They all look so delicious and as a child, I envisioned heaven to be the same way.

How I wish that in our world, we could just eat anything and maintain our figures:)

Pizza Pizza Pizza

I am a big cheese lover. Walking along MTS with a few friends led us to a place called Calda Pizza. The place was jam packed so we decided to give it a try. Both dine in and take out customers kept coming and we had to wait for almost an hour before our pizza was delivered. It was worth the wait. They don't provide plates and utensils. The pizza is just placed on a round wooden thing with paper on it and you just eat the pizza by hand. The people making the pizza can be seen through the glass so you can be sure that your food is prepared accordingly. They prepare a thin crust pizza with sizes from regular to super family size. I don't know how big their biggest pizza is but I would recommend Calda Pizza for a "Pizza,Pasta Party".

going back

Each person desires to be loved and accepted. I have finally found someone who truly loves me yet the situation tells us to let each other go. I feel trapped. And worst, almost all my friends are going abroad. Friends at work don't seem to be the way it was. I feel left out sometimes. But I guess that's life. Some people at one point become a meaningful part of your life and then they just become acquaintances. It breaks my heart that God is letting me experience loss again. Maybe I am doing something wrong that fate seems to be going against me. Again. Or maybe I should just take a risk and just go away. I am happy at my current work, but I feel there is still something that I have to do. I still am not confident at my abilities. There are still so much to learn. I am not performing well at work. I am getting the blues and I have no one to confide to at this point. I want to shout and just let go.

How to Lose Weight the Easy Way

The holidays played a lot of part in putting on most of the weight that I have lost the previous year. I find dieting excruciating because I enjoy food a lot. Food is happiness to me. I had already planned to lessen my food intake this year to lose some of the fat that has accumulated mainly in my stomach, arms and face. I tried to condition my mind that I can do it and I have to really instill self-control especially now that my stomach has expanded once again. Going back to work after a long vacation made me realize that it may not be so hard after all. It had been a stressful day because a lot of work was waiting and reports are still not done and deadlines are getting harder to beat. I came home last night with only work on my mind and I had to force myself to eat and sleep because I did not want to get sick. I do not want to use my sick leave because I might need those for future trips. Oh well, I guess for me, the easiest to lose weight is having stress. Tough Luck!
