Huling Yakap (One Last Hug)


Unang araw ng taon. January 1, 2016.
Byaheng Norte ako, kasama ng pamilya ko.
Sakay ng Victory Liner bus patungong Pangasinan.
Muli, dadalawin ka namin.

Tandang tanda ko pa nung bata pa ako na sa tuwing isasama ako ng aking ama o kaya ng aking mga tita at tito, excited ako na makarating agad dahil alam ko na may naghihintay sa akin na lola.
Kwento mo pa nga sa akin na binibilang mo ang mga bus na dumadaan at sa tuwing may hihinto sa tapat ng bahay nyo, ikaw ay umaasa na kami na ang taong hinihintay mo.
Mula umaga hanggang gabi, ikaw ay naghihintay sa aming pagdating.
At kapag dumating kami, sinasalubong mo kami ng iyong mainit na yakap at halik.
Natatandaan ko pa na sa tuwing kakalungin mo ako, susuklayan mo ang aking magulong buhok at ibubulong sa aking mga tenga kung gaano mo ako kamahal, kami ng mga apo mo.
Gustong gusto ko ang pakiramdam na yun. Parang ako na ang pinakaswerteng apo.
 Dahil ramdam na ramdam ko ang init na iyong pagmamahal na sa kahit sa musmos kong edad ay aking naramdaman. 

Ilang taon ang lumipas, hindi kita nadalaw. 
Lumaki ako, nakapagtrabaho, naging isang Ina,  naging abala sa lahat. 
Palagi mong itinatanong kung kailan ako pupunta. 
Palagi kang umaasa sa aking pagbabalik.
Patawad Inang sa hindi ko pagbisita sayo ng ilang taon. 
Sa mga panahon na wala ako sa tuwing binabanggit mo ang pangalan ko. 
Sa mga panahon na gusto mong ikwento sa akin ang mga kakaibang kwento na nakakapagpatawa sa akin at nakakapagpasaya sayo. 

Bago sumapit ang Pasko,  nagkita tayo kasama ang aking mga kapatid at mga apo mo sa tuhod.
Kagaya ng dati, matyaga ka pa ring naghintay sa aming pagdating.
Nakita ko ang tuwa sa iyong mga mata nung nakita mo kami.
Ang pagluha mo sa tuwa nung dumating kami.
Kung gaano ang iyong pananabik sa aming mga yakap at halik.
Ramdam na ramdam ko pa rin hanggang ngayon ang init ng yakap mo.
Ang init ng pagmamahal ng lola sa apo.
Hindi ko akalain na ang yakap na yun pala ay
Ang Iyong Huling Yakap. 

Sa iyong paglisan, alam ko na naghihintay sayo si Amang sa langit upang muli, kayo ay magkapiling. 
Ang yakap na ipinaramdam mo sa amin, ngayon ay mararanasan mo naman ngayon sa piling ng ating Panginoon.
Sasalubungin at yayakapin ka nya ng buong higpit. 
Hinding hindi ka na makakaramdam ng anumang hirap at sakit. 

Maraming salamat sa yo Inang sa pagmamahal na at ipinadama mo sa amin.
Babaunin ko ang mga kwento at aral na ibinigay mo sa amin.
Hindi ka namin malilimutan. 
Mahal na mahal ka namin.

Fred & Sally 40th wedding anniversary

Here's a short video of our Mama and Papa's love.

Naniniwala ba kayo sa "Forever?"

I always hear those questions whenever the topic is about LOVE.

Well, my answer is YES!

Why? Because I witnessed how my favorite couple show their love for each other through thick or thin, in sadness and in health, in joy and sadness.

I am proud to say that my parents had celebrated their 40 years of love last September 7, 2015.

40 years of loving together! 

We are so blessed to have an amazing parents. Seeing true love through you makes my heart happy. 

Thank you Mama and Papa for being an inspiration to us.

Experience Magical Ice Festival At the Big Dome

It’s that time of the year again. As Christmas fast approaches, a palpable sense of excitement fills the air with the return of an all time Filipino favorite – the annual staging of Disney On Ice at the Big Dome.

There is much to look forward to in this year’s show. Aside fromworld-class skaters who make up its talented ensemble, Disney On Ice presents Magical Ice Festival will feature Disney’sAcademy Award® winningand number one animated feature film of all time Frozen, along with three Disney royal adventures!

“This year’s Disney On Ice is truly magical with Disney properties that are packed with heart and personality. We have princesses that are exuberant and strong-willed, but we’ve also expanded the roles of spirited supporting characters, so that they’re more prominent in the show,”says Producer Nicole Feld.

For the first time on ice, watch your favorite Disney stars Anna and Elsa, together with hilarious snowman Olaf, rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Svenin a magical winter adventure. 

“The most exciting part of bringing characters like Anna and Elsa to the ice for the first time is knowing that they have a powerful and inspiring message the resonates with audiences as the sisters discover the true meaning of love,” says producer Nicole Feld.

Audiences will also enjoy comical segments with captivating stories of princesses Ariel, Rapunzel and Belle in a new twist of fairytale fun featuring Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Tangled, and Beauty and the Beast. 

“By pulling together moments from classic Disney stories to the newest feature film sensation Frozen and combining them with elements of comedy and music, we developed a truly unique way to re-tell each fairytale,” says Producer Juliette Feld.

Dazzling costume designs, spectacular set elements, and jaw-dropping stunts are also what make this year’s show even more exhilarating.

In Beauty and the Beast’s “Be Our Guest,” the theatrical elements of the glitzy napkins and silverware costumes will astound audiences. “The costumes are designed to emphasize the overwhelming amount of table d├ęcor that appears in the movie. The napkins unfold to increase their size and the forks tower over the heads of the performers. This is a big moment for Belle; the costumes need to reflect that,”says Costume Designer Cynthia Nordstrom.

Moreover, lighting plays a crucial role in giving the overall production a truly magical feel.
“The colors really pull you into the different worlds of the princesses, but it’s how the lights are arranged that command your attention when the characters are performing their acts. For example, when the Daughters of Triton are introduced, the lighting individually highlights each of them. Your eyes follow the spotlights,” says Lighting Designer Sam Doty. 

Experience Magical Ice Festival at the Big Dome from December 25 to January 3 and don’t miss the chance to see your favorite Disney stars LIVE! Buy your tickets via TicketNet online or call 911-5555 for more details.

#dimsummit2015 - Digital Influencers Marketing Summit 2015

Okay. I confess. I am a social media addict. I check my social media accounts most of the time. I am checking it not only for personal reasons but also for business as an Online Lead Generator. Yes, I am doing business using social media and I think most of my friends and colleagues would agree to me that using social media have changed their lives!

Even traditional media have embraced social media to reach out, engage and interact with readers and viewers. Because now, everything is online. Even celebrities has a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account that they use to express themselves and keep people updated on what's going on . One of the the example is Eat Bulaga. Traditional Media had a cross over to Social Media. Okay, I admit I've been following ALDUB, the "Accidental love Team" or what we call the the MAIDEN or "Love Team Made in Heaven". Imagine, breaking the twitter record history for having 25.6M Tweets in just 24 hours! Wow! They really have a super supportive fans.

Of course there would be downside when using social media. There are bashers and critics online but it's one of the things that you have to deal with it. 

However, I  am wondering that if we have many followers online... can we call ourselves  a Digital Influencer? Can we really influence people through the use of Social Media? How effective is it? 

Do you want to become a Digital Influencer? I am sure you would say YES! Then the upcoming big event is for you!
