8th Gaginaway Festival

Monday, November 24, 2014

The 8th Gaginaway Festival has recently concluded and here are a few glimpse of what had transpired. Every year I post photos of the festivities to showcase the "panagtapok" or the coming together of the 4 diverse cultures in Malita: Tagacaulo, B'laan, Manobo and Muslim. It is only here in Malita that these 4 tribes are celebrated, so imagine the people joining us and the natives from the uplands coming down to witness the festivities. To every one who celebrated with us, thank you very much. To all the committees and all the different sectors, thank you very much.

Me with my uncle, my brother and my cousins.

Aso with my other siblings (all in B'laan attire) Estefanie, Bryan and Benjamin III, my sister-in-law Tine (in blue, Muslim attire) and my cousins, Bradley and his wife Jean in Muslim attire.

Me and Jean in those rare moments when we just want to flaunt ourselves. Mind you these dresses are no easy task to wear.

Joining us is another cousin Brett in red Muslim attire and my daughter K who came late because she came from school.

This was at the culmination of the 4-days celebration. Here with us is the Mayor, Hon. Benjamin Bautista Jr., the Municipal Councilors and the Elders from the different tribes.

How to recycle plastic bottles

Sunday, November 23, 2014

In as much I like to buy stuff especially for my family, I also want to save the environment. I have so many bottles just like these. And I've been thinking of what to do with them. I didn't just wanna sell them or throw them. The kids' drawer was a mess. So with a little imagination and a few help from the yayas....

Amway plastic bottles

We turned those bottles into holders for pens and stuff. and it made their drawers neat.

We had to insert a plywood in betwwen the bottles and the books to keep it in place.

This is so much better than how it looked before :)

What I learned with my 100 Happy Days

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

life is full of shit, everybody knows that. if you do not learn how to look at it in a different perspective, you'll lose yourself in it. by merely appreciating the small things, I began to realize that even in the most unexpected events, there are still things to be thankful for and be glad that I was able to pass through life.

i am thankful for the experience, the learnings, the people that I now call friends. without them, i don't know how I'd be able to surpass the challenges. and it made me realize how important family is.

therefore I say, enjoy life, find things to be grateful for no matter how small it is, be kind to everyone even your enemies, say thank you all the time and i mean all te time, say sorry like you really mean it even when it's not really your fault. watch and be amaze how life changing it is.
