they say that when you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day but if you teach a man how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. well, i taught my cat how to fish!


paper fish … yuki loved them. well, sinubukan niyang kainin while rolling around. he was trying to take them off the blue paper i used for the background and sneak off somewhere, i was heaving his fat stomach every now and then. hahaha! anyhoo, kahit generic silang tingnan, i was thinking of salmon and blue marlin when i did the fish…

going back to the quote though, it means that it’d be a lot better to be able to do things for yourself rather than having others do it for you. if i can make paper fish, siguro dapat aralin ko na rin magluto ng isda. hahaha!

yun lang.

had a fun day out with max yesterday. we haven’t seen each other in months, so this is really significant for me. as usual pretty mode pa ren siya, the baby bump looks cute. hihihi. here you go, max fans, teh powar that is shimazu…


we had crepes at the mall tapos nanood kami ng puss in boots… parang mga kids lang. loved the movie though, ang dami kasing miming. hahaha! we also looked around for baby stuff… i enjoyed looking at the fancy pacifiers, too cute. hihihi.

all in all it was a great bonding day, max isn’t one to bore you… which is something i like about her. di lang siya pretty face, marami siyang insights, i like the way she thinks. oha oha! i labs you beb!

yun lang.

IOGraphica - 6 hours (from 18-56 Nov 13th to 0-59 Nov 14th)

this is actually my mouse path … you know that little piece of hardware you use to drag and click around while you stare at the monitor… from around 7 pm to 1 am as of this writing. the lines are movements while the circles are for when the mouse is idle.

i’ve been resting a lot the past few days because i’ve had a bit of a weird reaction to some medication. kaya naman masaya ako, meron akong nagawa sa anim na oras na nakatunganga sa harap ng computer. hahaha. i think it’s kind of pretty…didn’t know doing something simple like dragging the mouse would produce something like this. try nyuuu, it would be pretty interesting to see what it’d look like after a few hours of …err, say plants versus zombies. hahaha! it’s a nice app from

yun lang.

a few thoughts first… it’s only just recently that i’ve realized that God really does make things work out for you. kasi naman, i really didn’t have time for Him for the past few years. i was bent on my responsibilities, on surviving life. and i’ve forgotten about Him. at siguro, sabi Niya mukhang super naliligaw na ko ng landas… i haz bad directions skillz eh… He led me back. and after that, i noticed, that day by day, everything gets a little better. yes, i encounter a few issues along the way but nothing He can’t handle.

going back… i was browsing through tumblr… err, i was looking for quotes on tumblr. i hadn’t cleared out the cache so when i hit the letter s, the first thing that pulled up was sheena sy’s blog. she used to have a link of her favorite quotes, but it was gone. i clicked on the merchandise link instead. i looked around and then i saw the pins.

one of the pins had “saved by faith alone” and it reminded me of the things that happened to me and the things He did for me. it was perfect. hihihi. i didn’t really make a big purchase, just two of the same pin. pinned one to my id lace, para kahit tinatambakan ako ng trabaho ni boss, meh nagpapaalala sakin na meron akong masasandalan. and i gave the other one to a person who i think is sort of addicted to God… saka pwede ko bang idagdag na super cute niya? bagay sila nung pin, parehong cute. hehehe!


saved by faith alone

so eun, if you want to get the pin too or other merchandise, or check out some ozumm artwork, or some wonderful insights about God, please click here. thank you so much sheena! God bless!

yun lang. God is good, yes?
