Happy Mother’s Day

May 8, 2010

When was the last time you said I love you to your mom? The last time you handed her a gift? Do you still remember the last bonding moment with your mother? If you answered no to all of this questions, maybe this will be the right time to do this. We celebrate the Mother’s Day every year, a special day to give honor to our hero, our mother. We salute all the mothers in the world because of their hardworks, sacrifices and unconditional love for their family.  

Taylor Swift turned Twenty

December 16, 2009

Taylor Swift turned 20 last December 13. She celebrated her Christmas themed birthday party in Hendersonville, Tenn., with her friends, her band and of course her family. What made this party extra special was the food served. Taylor and her mother baked butter cookies and gingerbread cookies with cream cheese icing for her guests. But aside for her party, she also celebrated her birthday by donating $250,000 to schools around the country.

“Something I wanted to do at the end of this amazing year and especially on my birthday was give back to something I really believe in, which is education. The schools that I went to and the amazing people I got to learn from really turned me into who I am, and I wanted to give back.”

She’s really an inspiration especially to the youth. Someone you can truly look up to and believes in the power of education. She was blessed because she knows how to share her blessings.

Happiest Birthday Ever!

December 16, 2009

This year I can say that this was my happiest birthday ever. Why? Because I just got a birthday shout out from Phi, member of the Jabbawockeez. I’m really an avid fan of this group and a simple happy birthday means a lot to me. Although I asked them to greet me on twitter it made my day so special when he granted my request. Another was when my friend from Dubai called me just to say happy birthday, I’m really touched because I’m not expecting it. All of my friends who sent their messages, I really appreciate it because they remember my birthday. And even though it’s late, We Are Heroes, the America’s Best Dance Crew Season 4 Champion and used to be one of my idols sent their birthday messages. My friend all the way from Canada also texted me and greeted me. Even though there’s no big celebrations, my 25th birthday was the most memorable and happiest birthday ever.

I’m Turning 25

December 5, 2009

The day goes by so very fast. I just remembered my birthday party when I was seven. I’ll never forget the times when I’m entering the teenage life. My unforgettable debut party, my graduation and now I’m turning 25. Yes, I’ll be 25 years old this coming December 9, 2009. I can say that in my 25 years in this world, I already experienced many things, except for having a boyfriend. Can you imagine that, I’m a member of “NBSB” (No Boyfriend Since Birth”). But that’s okay with me, thinking that I have my family by my side I will not be alone. They are my priority and the important thing in my life. Being 25 is not a big deal for me, I’m still the same person that I used to be. I still love Hello Kitty, I idolize Taylor Swift and David Archuleta and I always want to see the Jabbawockeez dance. I can’t take away the child within me, honestly I still love watching cartoons and anime. They said that only age become older, being look old is your choice and I believe that. I have long way to go. In my next 25 years I want to accomplish many things. I want to travel to the beautiful places in the Philippines and outside the country. I always like to be a volunteer in an organization that helps people and that will be my plan for the years to come. I thank God for giving me this wonderful 25 years of my life, for guiding me throughout and I know that I still have a mission to do.

Christmas Is In The Air

December 5, 2009

The Christmas day is already near, less than 20 days to go for the season to come. You already feel the cold breeze and you can feel that Christmas is in the air. The malls are always packed of shoppers doing their early Christmas shopping. Christmas parties and events happen everywhere. Buying gifts for loved ones always excites me. Christmas decorations are hanged in every house and establishments and it brings joy to the person who sees when the lights are on. Christmas carols always had been background music in every mall. But behind all of this, don’t forget that Christmas is the day of birth of Jesus Christ. Gifts and money are only material things what’s important is that we celebrate Christmas by sharing what we have and doing things that Jesus taught us. Advance Merry Christmas!

Philippine Independence Day

Philippine Independence Day

Today, we Filipinos are celebrating the Philippine Independence Day. This year marks the 111th year of Philippine Independence from Spanish Government. This is an official holiday so there’s no work, no classes in the Philippines.

The declaration of Philippine Independence Day occurred on June 12, 1898 in Cavite el Viejo but now Kawit Cavite, Philippines. Filipino revolutionary head General Emilio Aguinaldo, the first Philippine President, proclaimed the sovereignty and independence of the Philippine Islands from the colonial rule of Spain after the latter was defeated at the Battle of Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War.

The declaration, however, was not recognized by the United States or Spain. The Spanish government later ceded the Philippines to the United States in the 1898 Treaty of Paris that ended the Spanish-American War.

The United States recognized Philippine independence on July 4, 1946 in the Treaty of Manila. July 4 was observed in the Philippines as Independence Day until August 4, 1964 when, upon the advice of historians and the urging of nationalists, President Diosdado Macapagal signed into law Republic Act No. 4166 designating June 12 as the country’s Independence Day. June 12 had previously been observed as Flag Day.

Every year, millions of Filipinos from all over the world gather around and celebrate this important day.

Mother’s Day

May 10, 2009

Mother’s Day History

The history of Mother’s Day is centuries old and goes back to the times of ancient Greeks, who held festivities to honor Rhea, the mother of the gods. The early Christians celebrated the Mother’s festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent to honor Mary, the mother of Christ. Interestingly, later on a religious order stretched the holiday to include all mothers, and named it as the Mothering Sunday. The English colonists settled in America discontinued the tradition of Mothering Sunday because of lack of time. In 1872 Julia Ward Howe organized a day for mothers dedicated to peace. It is a landmark in the history of Mother’s Day.

In 1907, Anna M. Jarvis (1864-1948), a Philadelphia schoolteacher, began a movement to set up a national Mother’s Day in honor of her mother, Ann Maria Reeves Jarvis. She solicited the help of hundreds of legislators and prominent businessmen to create a special day to honor mothers. The first Mother’s Day observance was a church service honoring Anna’s mother. Anna handed out her mother’s favorite flowers, the white incarnations, on the occasion as they represent sweetness, purity, and patience. Anna’s hard work finally paid off in the year 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as a national holiday in honor of mothers.

Slowly and gradually the Mother’s day became very popular and gift giving activity increased. All this commercialization of the Mother’s day infuriated Anna as she believed that the day’s sentiment was being sacrificed at the expense of greed and profit.

Regardless of Jarvis’s worries, Mother’s Day has flourished in the United States. Actually, the second Sunday of May has become the most popular day of the year. Although Anna may not be with us but the Mother’s day lives on and has spread to various countries of the world. Many countries throughout the world celebrate Mother’s Day at various times during the year, but some such as Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium also celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May.

Mothering Sunday

The early Christians in England celebrated the Mother’s festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter) to honor Mary, the mother of Christ. Interestingly, later on a religious order stretched the holiday to include all mothers, and named it as the Mothering Sunday. People working out of their homes were expected to return to the “mother” church (the spiritual power that gave them life and protected them from harm). It also became an occasion for family reunions.

What makes my mom special?

Today, we celebrate mother’s day. It’s the right time to thank them and show them how special they are to us. I’m very lucky to have a mother who always thinks what’s best for us. She always cooks for us, fix our things, give our needs and help us in our problems. She’s not selfish, she raised us with good values and education. She always take care of us when were sick. She worries when one of us are not at home yet. She always give her hand in times that we are encountering problems. We are her life and she’s our life too. She’s our superhero, she’s the best mother for me, no things she can’t do when it comes for her family. We love her so much and I hope that God will give her a good health and long life in the years to come. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers in the world!
