My Christian Walk Personal

His Mercies Are New Every Morning!

Hey guys, I’m back! *furiously waves*

I’m putting an end to my hiatus (I’m sure you didn’t even notice lelz!) because my number of overdue drafts is growing higher and higher. It’s stressing me out haha.

And regarding that struggle that I am going through? It’s not officially “over” yet. We’re still taking tests and waiting for results — I’m sure you already have a vague idea of what this struggle is about but I’m really not keen on writing a post about it. But I figured, I cannot mope around forever. That only means I am not trusting God to do, well, his thing! We’re not quitting and we haven’t stopped praying. His will be done. My help comes from the Lord, who made Heaven and Earth!


How are you? Let’s talk about things!


Being on Facebook is so toxic, no? I am supporting my Mayor (I’m from Davao) and as much as possible, I only share the articles that promote him as a candidate. I dislike sharing articles that mud-sling (although sometimes that is inevitable). I take the elections seriously, but I’m also sick of all the smear campaign not just against my candidate but also the ones against the others. Elections really bring out the worst out of some people.

I am tempted to deactivate my Facebook account but I can’t because I need it for work. I’m just thankful the campaign season is almost over!

Balik Alindog 2016


I know, I know. This is probably my 3rd attempt to lose weight this year. But this time, I really have had enough. I feel soooo heavy and my arms and tummy are sooo huge and my selfies are half double chins… Haha! I’m still researching. I’m trying to ease into a fitness regime that will work but, at the same time, won’t stress me out too much. Given my current situation, the last thing I need is more stress!

New Haircut!


And speaking of stress, one of my stressors lately is my long, thick hair. I can easily pull it into a ponytail, but I dislike doing it all the time. I’ve been itching to cut my hair and re-colour it (my grey hairs are showing again — I’m only 25 turning 26 yet I have a lot of grey hairs!) and finally, I found the time last weekend. Nothing drastic; just the same shorter hairstyle I sport from time to time.




Yuri will be starting school soon. But not regular preschool. We’ve decided on a unique arrangement that will, hopefully, give Yuri the best of both worlds. Yuri is scheduled to take his diagnostic test tomorrow and I’m nervous because it’s his first time to take any sort of test. But I am excited, too!

So that’s how life has been lately. How are you?

    I feel you sis on this. Minsan overwhelming the things that we need to accomplish. When I get overwhelmed, I usually list everything, I dunno – it sort of helps me focus. 🙂

      Our neighbour’s salon lang! Thank you!

    Don’t stress out yourself too much. Sometimes these stressirs are the reason to our low metabolism causing us to gain more weight. Btw, you look good and healthy, i don’t think you are fat at all.

    Amen for that, I love your hair cut sis, bagay kaayo nimo 🙂 At mukhang di ka naman mataba ah, so why worry? you look good.

      Angle angle lang sis. In reality, 15 pounds overweight! 😛

    Minsan ‘little’ changes like cutting your hair somehow lighten makes whatever is stressing you out no? And I cannot agree more on how amusing and at the same time depressing my feeds look like because of all the election drama. I just unfollow and hide. 🙂

    Nice hair. I also prefer shorter one. And I need to shed these fats as well. As in. Seriously. And I could feel your excitement re your boy’s school assessment. Been there. Ihihi. Good luck to the heathier us and to the little man’s schooling.

    Ooh so you decided to really send Yuri to school. 🙂 He looks happy. Hayyy yes, nakakainis ang newsfeed ko minsan sa dami ng nega. Hindi mo na tuloy malaman alin ang totoo at alin ang gawa gawa.

    Regarding your struggle, I hope that things will get better. 🙂

    P.S. Can’t cut my hair, unless it’s pixie cut, I find that I can’t handle medium length hair haha.

    I agree, FB is soooo toxic! I switch to IG sometimes just to get it all out of my system. Haha! I’m also agreeing with you on the Balik Alindog thing. I need it badly too. I can’t seem to stick to a fitness routine. Hay! Good luck to us!

  • Reply Janice May 4, 2016 at 9:03 pm

    Nice to hear your updates, Maan. 🙂 You’re right about FB being toxic lately. I myself am staying out of talking about politics. I don’t wanna stress myself especially now that I’m pregnant. Anyway, whatever it is that’s troubling you, I hope it will be over soon and that everything will be okay. 🙂

    Hi sis! Kapit lang ingon ang Tarsier. Wahahaha bitaw Maan. Huuggsss :-* Ingana gyud na basta mga gwapa daghan kaayo pagsubok sa life. 😀

      Hahahaha hello po! Hahahaha

  • Reply Nina Sogue May 4, 2016 at 10:28 pm

    I super agree with toxic FB. I’m currently on IG lang because FB has so much hate. As for your haircut, I love it! I had a haircut too last February. It did wonders for me, so I hope it’ll bring you luck too. 🙂

  • Reply Pinknomenal May 4, 2016 at 11:04 pm

    I hope you get through whatever it is you’re going through right now. Cutting your hair is a good start though! I feel revitalize after giving myself a make-over. All the best to you!

    Lots of new things happening! I’m excited for my son to start school. I’m also hoping to fix this mop on my head soon!

    Hi!!! Your hair suits you! And I read that tying your hair causes hairfal..

    Re: Balik Alindog, I haven’t eaten rice for almost 2 years now and I lost weight. I still eat a lot but didn’t really gain weight (eating desserts and chocolates doesn’t count, of course). Or you can do brisk walking for 30mins to 1-hr every day. 🙂

  • Reply Ayi May 11, 2016 at 9:17 am

    Nakakaloka maging babae minsan. So many hats to wear and to be honest, it is really overwhelming. One step at a time and hinga ng malalim lagi mommy :))
