Decorate a Wall Using an Old Calendar

It's been a year since we changed the aircon in the masters bedroom. The part where the old aircon was left without a paint because we couldn't find the same color of paint. Our cotractor cannot remember the exact kind of yellow.

It irritates me everytime I see that unpainted part so I decorated the the wall using an old Calendar.

How To Clean Bathroom Tiles

People have different words for bathroom. Some call it comfort room, lavatory, restroom, powder room and toilet. Sa ating bayan ito ay kasilyas, kubeta, silid-paliguan at banyo. 

Despite its general use, the bathroom is my favorite part of the house because it brings forth wonderful memories of my mother. In the kitchen, when Mama asked me to help prepare food, I'd always forget a thing or two and Mama will not be happy. But when she tells me to clean the banyo, she'd praise me oh so dearly for doing a good job. This is probably why up until now I'd prefer to clean our banyo than cook food. Ang lakas talaga ng psychological effect ng mga magulang. Kaya para sa mga magulang na nagbabasa nito, i-praise ang mga anak sa mga kaaya-ayang gawain, wag ng itulad sa akin (lol!).

Some people eat chocolates when upset, depressed or plainly sad. Some would go shopping. Others would drink themselves to death. Iba ako, I'd go clean our banyo. I love cleaning our banyo, because I get to reflect on things that matters, such as, prepare my program for events and hosting, draft an article for this blog, plan our trips, sweat out, or cry when sad. When I am in this place I feel joyful, it's like a dose of instant happiness. As soon as I start cleaning our banyo all the negative emotions inside vanishes. 

But let's face it, ang hirap linisin ng floor, especially if the tiles are in white or cream shade. Feel free to watch my video on How To Clean Bathroom Tiles.

Occasions of Joy 7th Anniversary at Pasay Sped Center

Instead of throwing parties for co-bloggers and friends, I organizes and hosts outreach activities every February 20 in celebrating this blog's anniversary.

I'm normally done with everything by the month of November but 2016 year was not that good for me and my family. A lot of unhappy events happened, we lost Papa in April. Mom-in-law was hospitalized by June. John was hospitalized by August and November. I got my thyroid biopsy result by December that said "possible cancer".

But how can I not push with Occasions of Joy 7th Anniversary at Pasay Sped Center when all the kids and teachers prepared songs and doxology already.

To cut the long story short, everything went well. I would like to thank everyone who were a part of this sharing of hope, love and joy to the special children of Pasay Sped Center, their teachers and some parents and guardians who were present during the outreach celebration.

My heartfelt gratitude goes to Principal Lea Marcelo, Teacher Julie Maranan, Ricky Quinsay, Agnes Caguntas, Lyn Borje, Amy Perez, Jomes Mendiola, Kim Basa, Sofy Alberto-Lista, Kessa Thea Egegaard Nielsen, Tetcha Gregorio-Figuerres, Rosanna Hwang, Maria Darilay, Ms. Elmie Cadungog, Ana Papasin-Monta, Jello Anselmo, Diana Stalder, Jen Dizon, Alfie Zapanta, Eiskin, Bubbleman, Wacoal, Omizu, Full Circle Communications, Inc., Perceptions Inc., and Marra Builders, Inc.
