Life is like a rainbow


We try to control life the way we want it to be but the thing is, sometimes it doesn’t work that way. When you begin to think that your life is your own and that you feel like you deserve better, you’ll begin to attract insurmountable pressure. You’ll feel an enormous stress pressing from every corners within you. And unless you can withstand it, you’ll lose the very joy and happiness that have been there with you from the start. So try to watch your life from afar, just like a rainbow. You’ll see the beauty that has been there all along.




Postscript: Thanks to my wife from reminding me this. =)

Life without limits


I want to share with you two big "about life" videos from Nick Vujicic, the man without limbs whose life is without limits. He has amazingly demonstrated to everyone how he celebrates life with only what he has, "a little chicken drumstick". Some people may look at him with pity, but it could be the other way around. Watch the videos and be awed at what he can do.



Here Nick demonstrates how to get back in life after a hard fall…



Be amazed and be inspired. Nick has no limbs to support himself  but he has the big heart and strong spirit to get through things. Imagine what you can do if you have his attitude. 

Visit him at  Life without limbs.

Online Visita Iglesia


The Visita Iglesia has been a common tradition for Filipinos during the Lenten Season. Families or friends sequentially visit seven to fourteen churches where they recite the stations of the cross. In order to adhere to tradition to cover fourteen churches, careful planning for the trip is necessary.

Here in the Philippines, the Catholic church has provided a way for those are unable to do the Visita Iglesia. An online Visita Iglesia has been put up. Here you can find popular churches across Manila starting with the Manila Cathedral. An audio narration is available for each station.

The site is favorably setup for Filipinos abroad, seamen, or those who are physically incapable. Click the image below to try it.
