Blogger mobile app

I have just loaded the blogger app from my cellphone. This would be a great way to blog while killing time (waiting at the doctors clinic, airport lounge or anytime I have nothing to do...). The app scored well among users... So it must be friendly. Here is a sample image I uploaded from my cellphone.
[image_0]  .............. ooppsss when I viewed the post.No image will come out. What's the problem ?  I  guess I need more time to learn more about the app. Anyone who have tried bloggeroid for android?

Back to being a child at Shangrila Mactan's kids world

We were at shangrila Mactan Three hours earlier than our check-in time, so my lovely and beautiful host ( Ms. Early Jen ) tour us around the ground floor. My first drop was the kids playing area. Upon seeing there were just a few kids playing at the slides, I jumped off the fence immediately. Hey! I was not wearing the prescribed long-sleeved shirt and socks. But who cares if to be scratched ? I just
wanted to bring the child in me!

So Excited for our Hong Kong and Macau vacation

It will really be a fun, fun, fun filled vacation for me and my hubby. We have saved for this escapade a year ago and it’s also it’s my birthday! Along with some close friends of ours, we decided to travel to Hong Kong and of course visit Macau! Our  two-day side trip to the “ Las Vegas of Asia”  would surely be very exciting! I already completed our itinerary  including a whole day of hotel  hopping.

Talking about casinos remind me of a  friend of ours told us of a tip where we can play  for free and get real cash. We don’t have to go to a real casino place but just play it online. We could get as much as $5-$500 Casino Bonus. Now that’s interesting but I still have second thoughts about it. He also told us that we could find a lot of no deposit casino bonus codes so we could start playing online casino.  And if these are all true and the no deposit bonus is also true, we might try this one

Our vacation two years ago at  Resort World  Malaysia in Genting was a memorable one.   We  got inside their casino but never tried playing even their free  slot machines for tourists. The place was  small and too crowded. I hope we can try some at  Venetian Hotel Casino and the newly opened Galaxy Hotel Casino. So we are counting days for our vacation and we are looking excited forward to it!

Here are some of the Hotels that we should visit :
The Famous Venetian Hotel
The New Galaxy Hotel
The Grand Lisboa Hotel

Happy 14th Birthday Dalefaith!

We always pray to God that you will grow up loving God more, loving your family, and being fully used by God through the ministry and calling that He prepared for you since the day you were born.


Weddings Bands for our Silver Anniversary

Funny though but photo shots from our friend of me and my dear wife in Dahilayan went viral. It was just stolen shots with a caption “Happy 19th Wedding Anniversary” and many of our friends greeted us. Even those we have not heard and seen for quite a long time already and even those we have not known. Six short years and it will be our Silver Wedding anniversary! Wow! How time flies fast. Our kids are grown up already. Right now, I’m thinking of looking for gold wedding bands our friends will be wearing for our Golden Wedding anniv
ersary! LOL!
Perhaps, you are thinking of the word “music”. Aren’t you? Or could it be a “movie”? Well, definitely, these are the words that come out first to your mind and possibly to most of the people’s mind when pertaining about soundtrack. Listening to this is the “in” thing not only at present but certainly even in the old times. In general, it speaks primarily to music that accompanies the story of films, TV shows and programs. To the world of the entertainment industry, an award for the “Best Soundtrack” is given to the deserving film or show. Similarly, in life there is also what you consider as the best soundtrack of your life. To the real world, it gives you an idea about the music of your life, which is none other than your story.

They say, music has a power. It can heal or hurt. There is a power of harmony between the chords and the notes used. There is a power from the playing of instruments such as guitar, Musicians friend cajon drum, violin, piano and some other popular musical instruments. There is a power of every word written in the lyrics of a song that may possibly make or break your day. Definitely, there is a power in music’s language, a message in which everyone can relate to. In one way or another there is always a positive or negative effect on your end. For those reasons, music has a power. For the children, their soundtrack maybe on jolly song craze that shows their young and bubbly spirit. Typically about fun from learning in school, exploring and playing around. For the teenagers, their soundtrack is the “gift for a teenage” soul. It depicts on the value of social relationships, friendship, and showing talents. Most of them engage in different musical bands. For the young adults, their soundtrack may depict on romantic relationships, experiencing laughter and tears; the feeling of being inspired and heartbroken. For the adults, their soundtrack may depict on successful careers.

They are having best moments with their kids. Most likely, they are experiencing the joy of parenthood. For the young at heart, their soundtrack could depict on looking back their lives and accomplishments. Whether you are a parent, a daughter, a son, a grandparent, or a friend surely there is that soundtrack that expresses the experiences you have undergone in life. One Atenean graduate shared a line from the song, one step at a time by jordin sparks, “We live and we learn to take one step at a time” shows how the soundtrack of her college life made her the kind of person she is right now all because her college life molded her to be independent, goal-oriented, and hardworking. Friend, how about you? What is the “soundtrack of your life”? Well then, your soundtrack, just like that of a song, is simply the details that you consider as remarkable moments in your life. Ever y life soundtrack you play creates powerful memories and influence not only to your end but also to the people around you.

Taylor Swift Manila Concert Ticket Prices

 photo 122_zpsed91c2b7.png 

If  only   the venue of Taylor's Swift Red Tour concert is near, the whole family would surely watch the show. We all love Taylor because she writes her own songs, plays her own guitar and sings her own lyrics. Her youthful innocence combined with the ancient wisdom of simple human emotion makes her music likeable to people of all ages . With her first single released at the age of sixteen, a song about her high school boyfriend moving away to college and the inevitableheartbreaking was such as hit.

This young superstar is coming back to Manila for a one-night show of her Red Tour at the Mall of Asia Arena. Concert tickets would surely sell like hot cakes. Aside from the captivating voice of Taylor Swift, I am excited to see the electrifying sounds of the instruments like guitars, keybords,  drums . I am sure I would be able to see the randall amp  that is usually used during live performances.

Ticket Prices are as follows :

VIP – P19,600
Patron – P16,430
Lower Box A – P10,090
Lower Box B – P7,980
Upper Box – P5,870
Gen Ad – P2,110

Are you going to watch the show ?

My parent's marriage wedding/marriage insights

The following is my interview with my parents regarding their ideas of wedding and how they  got married. This is in compliance with our project in English.  I heard about their love story many times  while I was younger, but this time  it is more comprehensive . As my father  answered me   my question, I was the more inspired to follow their love story. No! I can not exactly  imitate it ... but can make it as a model in finding  the   right partner in life.  Here's what I got from the long interview...

My mom and dad during a wedding which my  dad officiated
a. On choosing a partner
My mom and dad grew up in conservative families. Not that they were wearing white clothes and sporting long hair though. They told me that their parents give importance to spirituality and family values.  They grew up believing that in choosing a partner, God’s guidance must be implored and that advises from the old folks (lolos, lolas, uncles, unties) must also be respected. One thing that is also important my dad told me is the friendship factor. You can get to know a partner without any pretence in friendship. Important in any relationship is an open communication and people who wants to choose a partner for life should realize that they should have a common ground in many things in a relationship. My mom agreed on that. If a guy or a girl doesn’t have a common understanding on spirituality, goals in life, dreams and aspirations, likes and dislikes…how can they then work and partner together?

There should be a time of waiting my dad quipped. He always reminds the young people every time he conducts a seminar or symposium about love and courtship. “TRUE LOVE WAITS” is the motto he wants us to adopt. Wait for the right time and pray for the partner that God will give you someday. He also encouraged me and my sister to “WAIT FOR THE RING UNTIL YOU DO THE THING”. In choosing for a partner my mom reminded me that “If you want to end it right, start it right”. Set your priorities straight. God must be first in everything, and then your family, your studies, career, work and your self comes next. My dad and mom were friends for five years. They both enjoyed working together with the youth in our church. Their love story buddied after years of knowing each other as friends. This is the reason my dad always tell us to have a healthy circle of friends.

b. Terms of agreement and engagement…
Both my parents agreed that in order for their relationship to last, they should set up spiritual standard as its foundation. This may not be so popular today but my mom reiterated the importance of praying for your partner. The pull of lust is so tempting that in keeping their promise to stay pure until the day of their marriage both of them must observe self-control. And both of them agreed that they did not regret in doing this. They spent a lot of their time doing church works, engaging in healthy activities with their friends and church mates. Their engagement is quite short. Just three months after my dad proposed (at Blue Berry, now it’s Brew Berry near the D.V. Soria), the tied the knot in a church wedding on March 28, 1995. It was one of the most joyful moments of their lives they told me.

c. Marriage ceremony…
My dad and mom got married in a Christian wedding officiated by their church pastor and were attended by family, relatives, friends and neighbours. It was like a celebrating a fiesta my mom told me. Every one of their friends was so excited to be part of that event. My dad laughed when he told me that because he was so nervous, he almost forgot to buy a pair of socks that day. All in all, the wedding and the reception (reception was at the PhilTown Hotel and Restaurant) was attended by 270 guests, friends, family members, relatives and neighbours.

d. Residence after marriage…
Before their wedding date, my dad and mom already built a house of their own at Burgos Street, Cagayan de Oro City. After two years they transferred to Balulang, Cagayan de Oro City and lived there for 16 years. That’s where me and my sister grew up. Now, after the Sendong tragedy, they are happily living at Villa Ernesto Subdivision, Gusa, Cagayan de Oro City.
