God Has Blessed My Life More Than I Ever Deserved

align boxBlog Owner and Post Author: Lainy

Three years ago, I wrote an attempt to chronicle my life just a few days before my 25th birthday – A Countdown to My “25th.” This time, while I was struggling to come up with a decent article, I was debating on whether or not it is appropriate to write down one as I felt I am again wearing my heart in my sleeves. However, I could not anymore be bothered.

I am not gonna lie.

It seems crazy how things had drastically changed for me in such short a time. In a sudden twist of fate, my perspectives towards life had altered accordingly.

As can be recalled, I was then a dreamy girl who knew nothing of a love greater than the love that a family can give.

Most women have this earth-shattering desire for independence in all aspects of their lives. I can only speak for myself as I walked that path when I moved out of my Mom’s home and tried to live on my own. I felt too grown up. Growing up is happening much too quickly. I asked: “Where did the time go?” I was more intrigued to have the world around my fingers and I couldn’t wait! Read: Because the Baby is Now a Lady

In the process, I broke my mother’s heart with the move. She had a hard time accepting the fact that after being sheltered for almost my entire life, I am all suddenly too grown up wanting to live on my own; in my own terms. Read: BREAKING NEWS: My Mom Finally Visited Me!

I painted a glorious picture of how incredibly cool it would be like to live independently. Admittedly, there were good and bad sides to it. Read: All By Myself and I am Loving It!

Our family gatherings became more frequent; it was a weekly affair. And how we so looked forward to it! I guess the cliche, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” holds true.


In many instances, my family would always bring me food at my apartment so I no longer had to cook.

On another side of the token, not one family member could instantly come to my rescue whenever I felt sick. It was hard to fend for myself.

I could not help but think of the future and I dearly remembered my Aunt (May God bless her soul) who had lost her battle to cancer in 2012.

She shared to me that it was not easy sans a family of her own- no husband, no children. She had countless lonely days and nights. She died a spinster. She encouraged me to get married and bear children of my own. In her death bed, the wise sage that is my Aunt told me:

“Please do not forget helping out your younger brothers even when you are already married.”

I could only weep; I had grieved for the loss of a woman who was more than a sister to my own Mom and who was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in the clan.

I saw how my mother was shattered into pieces twice as much as I did.

As I write this, I am now a happy wife and an excited mother-to-be. Someone made me his world; he did not mind the scary responsibility of building a family with me and he willingly consented to my being mother to his future children. I still strive to be a better woman playing various roles and that includes being a “wife” and a future “mother.” I am still a work in progress everyday. Read: We Prayed, He Answered: We Are Pregnant!

That "someone" is now my loving husband

That “someone” is now my loving husband

As I am feeling the flutters and tingling sensation in my belly for our baby’s tiny movements, I can now vividly imagine being responsible for the future and well-being of a beautiful, innocent, all-love, trusting little child that is my own. I look forward for the future with so much hope and optimism that everything will be in place according to God’s plans.

Bump ahead!

Bump ahead!

I distinctly recalled that before getting hitched, I have lived a full and carefree life. I have traveled to different places, enjoyed the company of my lovely friends and beautiful family, and I got the chance to enhance my personal and professional skills.

How can I forget becoming an Aunt for the first time to my little darling Morning Dew?!

My little Darling Morning Dew

My little Darling Morning Dew

I grieved for the loss of my friends and relatives and rejoiced in their triumphs and achievements, too.

I have often cried in silence regarding anything minute and trivial- from lost money, phones, frustrations, disappointments, and “losing” a bestfriend.

There are still heaps of sob stories to tell that’s enough to make life horribly bleak but I shall spare you with the details.

God’s promises to His faithful children are real. Despite life’s storms and struggles, I felt victorious because I completely understand that God is working all things out for the good and His purpose for my life. He had always been aware of the painful trials that I had to go through. He walked side by side with me. When my heart is ready, I shall be writing more about it. He has a divine eternal reason for each and everything that I had to endure. He has a timing for it all and it is all part of the perfect plan.

With all humility and gratefulness, all the honor, glory, and praises is to God. He has blessed my life more than I ever deserved. There are moments when I feel I do not deserve one tiny bit of the wonderful things that I had been given- a new lease to life as I celebrate another birthday; a loving family in the Philippines and in Sydney; an awesome and wonderful husband; a baby on the way; wonderful friends, and so much more! I could only count each and every blessing that God is bestowing upon me and He is incessantly doing so.

With my lovely Mum-In-Law

With my lovely Mum-In-Law

Life is a gift and tomorrow is never promised. I vow to make the most out of this gift- 25 years old forever I will be! I am so ready to take on the new role that I am about to play in a few months time. There will be hills and hurdles along the way but God’s love and mercy will always pull me through.

Indeed, life is worth living!

The Epitome Of Guru Bingkee …

align boxBlog Co- Author: Windy

It is remarkable, in this Age and Time, that Gurus still exist.

Just when we begin to believe that finally it’s the Age of Reasoning with the assistance of Books, the Internet and Equipment that are at our learned disposal, here comes The Epitome of a Guru going bonkers.

Guru Bingkee amazingly expounds…


Ahhh, Guru Bingkee is spot on.


Just like, Bingkee does it so immaculately in the name of peace, when she finds it hypocritcally AOK to do some name-calling…


You see, people who do not step in line with her philosophies are “freakish and extremely hideous”

She feels there are circumstances and people that surround her menacingly and they are FREAKS and EXTREMELY HIDEOUS.

In true form, Guru Bingkee humbly asks her devotees…


And my answer to lulu lala Bingkee is simply this:

Blessed are the pissmakers for they shall inherit nothing.

You Knew It

This Post was meant to be titled, “Did You Know?” but that would sound somewhat classroom-ish.

Hence,I would rather give the Reader the benefit of the doubt and I titled it as, “You Knew It”

Like for all our suffering sisters who are married. If their husband is a pain, we’d understand if they refer him as their arseburn.

What about you, dear Reader. If thus far you can’t understand because you are not thinking with your cerebral; it’s appalling that you might be thinking with your cerebum.

Let’s move on.

Rap took the world by storm. Everyone is rapping except for Filipinos. They’re masarapping.

While still in the Philippines, papaleng is an endangered specie in Manila. That is because it is Man Nil La.

And should the Reader see the Gospel truth in all this, the Reader might see a resemblance of himself in why a cracked crockpot is called a crackpot.

Don’t be one.

Follow The Commentary Rules

align boxBlog Co- Author: Windy

We have seen and perhaps read how we should leave Comments at Blogs. All good stuff, regardless of the fact that the author of those stuff is not much of a Commentator himself.

This is different. This is not a How to do it.
These are Rules, baby, RULES.


Rule No.1
If you can’t say sumthin intelligent, DON’T.

Rule No.2
If you’re going to say sumthin stupid, know who you’re about to say it to.

Rule No.3
If you disagree with what you read, remember that the author is just as stupid as you.

Rule No.5
If you think you are the Mother of all Flames, be ready to be scorched by your own fire.

Rule No.6
If you want publicity, learn its secrets from Bingkee.

Rule No.8
If you know best, why do you have to talk so much?

Rule No.9
If you think you are right, the other person is also thinking the same for himself.

Rule No.10
If you still believe you are right, hire a Professional Lawyer.

I meant, Professional Liar.

So there you go. You are now ready to leave your Comments at Blogs if you follow those RULES, religiously.


Did I miss Rule No.4?

Oh that one, Okay.

Rule No.4
I am giving you some slack for you to make up one for yourself.

What? You don’t say. I know how to number things sequentially.

Doggone it! I did. Oops.

Rule No.7
Ahhh!, this one I cannot tell you.
It is classified.
It is for me, to handle Commentators like you.

Robin Williams – Eulogy

align boxBlog Co- Author: Windy

Another Star has adorned himself in the firmament of human geniuses.

There is neither a need to repeat all that is buzzing in the Media about Mr. Robin Williams nor to describe the man.

He had done it all, seen it all.

And he enthralled us to the point where he became so depressed because we never took him seriously. We are guilty of culpable homicide.

Now, to rub it in, they are going to place the iconic abbreviation, R.I.P over his tombstone, asking Mr. Robin Williams to Rise If Possible.

Fare thee well, our wondrous alien Mork. You gave us so many reasons to laugh.

You will forever be missed. You are one in a zillion.

When Bad Triumphs Over Good

align boxBlog Co- Author: Windy

It is popular folklore down south in the Philippines. Go to the distant islands in the Philippines and you will be told of all kinds of superstitions and beliefs amongst the rural folk.

Like in this case about the wandering scavenger Bariles in General Santos, Mindanao.

Perhaps, Lainy will be able to attest to the veracity of this folklore as she hails from that region.

There once lived this skinny man in ragged clothes in General Santos. He was never missed everyday as he went from trash bin to trash bin, digging through the rubbish in search for food and anything that he considered valuable.

No one bothered about him. No one even cared to give him food. He was so unsightly and his presence could be smelled from hundreds of feet away. Yeah! such was the strength of his disgusting pong.

One day, Bariles as usual was feeling his hands through a trash bin and he suddenly stopped. The tip of his fingers knew from the feel of the object that this was entirely an item that he had never felt in his scavenging career.

He slowly drew out the item through all the muck in the trash bin and he found it was a lamp. Stealthfully, he looked over his shoulders and tucked it inside his shirt, afraid that someone might stop him and take it away from him.


He hastily turned around and made his way to his hiding place beneath one of the wooden bridges. He sat there and stared at the lamp not knowing what he could do with it.

Then he grabbed some paper to clean the lamp and while he was rubbing the lamp, POOF!!! out rose a Genie.


He crawled away from the lamp and stared at the Genie in utter amazement.

The Genie then said, “Master, I am at your command. Name me three wishes and it will be yours.”

Bariles was dumbfounded. He was speechless. He kept looking up at the Genie towering over him.

Somewhat meekly, Bariles said, “Please, give me all the Food in this World. I am so hungry.”

And the Genie replied, “Your wish is my command.” And POOF!!! Bariles found himself sitting at a banquet of food.


This went on for almost a week. Food, Food, Food until Bariles could not take it anymore.

He went back to the lamp and continued to clean it. Once again, out came the Genie and Bariles had to name his next wish.

Bariles then wished that he was the most dapper looking male in General Santos and POOF!!! Bariles found himself looking at rows and rows of wardrobes filled with all sorts of men’s clothings.

The Santosians could not believe what they saw when Bariles appeared in town. It went on day after day as he strutted all over town in his new clothes. Until, Bariles got tired of it.

He sat in his hideout. Laughing at his windfall. Food, Clothing and then thought what next?

He heard a voice in his right ear, “BUILD A CHURCH” then came another voice in his left ear, “WOMAN”.


Bariles grabbed the lamp and out came the Genie.

“Give me your last and final Command, Master”, said the Genie, “and it is yours.”

Bariles then spoke to the Genie, “Bend lower so that I can whisper it in your ear.”

The Genie answered, “Why whisper? Master”


So the Genie bent over and Bariles whispered ever so softly in the Genie’s ear, “I want to be between the thighs of a woman.”

Genie: Are you sure, Master?

Bariles: Yes, get on with it.

Genie: OK! Bye bye Master.

And POOF!!!

There lay Bariles….

Game Craze In Tacloban, Philippines

align boxBlog Co- Author: Windy

For those of us who have grown up from the days when it was the Rubik Cube and the Nintendo Pacman which entertained kids for endless hours, we have seen the gaming industry grow by leaps and bounds, beyond our imagination.

There appears to be an unlimited horizon for game addicts. It is a huge business today and it is still growing.

However, for Taclobanians, this is not the case. They have to be creative without the money or the means to own electronic gadgets.

As it was in the case of these two married couples who live in Tacloban. Remember Tacloban was devastated to the ground by the Monster Typhoon, Yolanda.

Basketball is a Philippine home name game. As we shall see why in this instance.

Mr. and Mrs. Santiago, an elderly couple in their 70′s lived in a wooden makeshift hut they built beside a dirt road.

Their neigbors, Mr. and Mrs. Bariles, a young couple in their early 20′s also lived in their proud hut separated by pieces of plywood with the elderly couple

It was a drab life in Tacloban after the Monster Typhoon Yolanda flattened the terrain and the spirits of the Taclobanians.

But not for these two couples. Here is why.

Every night, or almost everynight, you could hear the elderly couple laughing as though it was their way of negating their misfortunes.

Their jocular night life made the young couple very curios and they decided to find out what these two old geezers were doing when they did not even have a television set.

So, the young man made a hole in the plywood wall to peep at the elderly couple.

To shorten this story, the young man found out why the elderly couple were having a blast.

This is what he discovered from peeping. The old man sat at one corner of the living room and had a pile of coconuts nearby.

He rolled a coconut in the direction of his old faithful who sat at the other opposite corner of the living room with her legs spread eagle.

Everytime, the old man made a hole in one, he laughed.
Everytime, the old man missed, she laughed.

Now, the twist of the story is that the young couple came up with their own version of Basketball. They used peanuts.

And soon, the Taclobanians turned their worries and heartaches into merriment everynight with their creative version of Basketball and named it CocoPea-Nut Ball.
