My two new essential faves from @vmvhypoallergenics
I got these packs way back December and I keep comin back for more- A hand gel and all purpose superwash, both must haves specially when travelling
Last night, I dreamt about the local Aetas I met in Mt. Bira-Bira, Zambales when I joined a climb for a cause last Sept 2017. Alone and unprepared, it was my first overnight climb - with people I just met that day. Feeling a little insecure, before we reached the jump off point I phoned my mom with my concerns and she cheered for me and motivated me that I needed that climb to clear up my mind since I was going through an emotional storm back then. I can't remember so much about the journey going up to the summit except for Mima - the girl I met and shared stories along the trail. Probably the coldest night for me, my feet and fingers are cold but I continue to wiggle them. The next day, we gathered the locals for the medical mission & gift giving. I remember how warm it made me feel when I saw their smiles. It was the most beautiful part of the journey. I spent most of the time helping the doctors in getting the patient's BP and talking to locals in between. I have been involved to several outreach activity but the experience with the isolated community nestled in the heart of Mt. Bira-Bira kept my faith in goodness. Even though we were really the ones bringing the gifts, it was really us gaining more from the stories, hugs, and kindness of each community member. After 48 hrs of pure serene, the experience helped my mind to process things and gave my heart so much courage to face the situation I left home. And I began to build myself back up, with God holding my hand.
The Lord is not playing hard to know; those who want to know Him can. He will not foist His love on us, but He does wait patiently, for He wants to be known by you. Knowing Him is the first thing in life. - David Roper
This message reminds me that God can be known. He is a person, not a logical or theological concept. He thinks, enjoys, feels, loves, and desires as any person does. The thought of God staggers the mind but to know Him satisfies the heart.
Have they chopped your mane
and called you beautiful,
even as you shrink small with the loss?
Can no one see your grief? you think.
You look them in the eyes anyway,
and say, thank you.
You look, and it is why you are strong.
There is too much vacant air now
where your power used to be,
but you are patient, and you wait
for what belongs to return to you,
as it is always bound to do.
You wait, and it is why you are strong.

My brother really knows how to handle me in all kinds of situation. Thank You Big G for the gift of family. 💛 #SimpleJoy
I had fun experimenting with these lights and definitely gonna try it again if the universe permits. 💫✨
God cannot give happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing. CS Lewis
Yesterday I had the pleasure of joining in with Moving Hearts at the @migrationmuseumproject
in London. @pennyryanartist
is encouraging volunteers to make 1,000 hearts to symbolise the immigrants in Australia who are trapped in detention centres with no hope of release. Each clay heart (I promise they are supposed to look like hearts!) is inscribed with a message of hope, support or dedicated to a person affected by migration in search of a place to call home. The hearts are being fired and will be part of a demonstration and if you're in London on 24th and 25th March please go along. You can take home a heart for a small donation too. Not the usual sort of post I share but please go along if you can! ❤
Meet the face that launched a thousand dreams. I met this shy little girl who doesn't wanna speak a word during our AetaGuyod outreach. She's just snuggled in one corner while the rest were having a good time. She had been so timid until I showed her my phone. Her eyes sparkled when she saw a camera and immediately posed for the gods. I finally had a chance to ask her, "what do you wanna be when you grow up?" She said "I wanna be seen on Tv". Well girl, with that natural beauty and doll eyes, the world wouldn't need a standard, you'll go beyond far than just on tv. She's Angela, 8, youngest of seven, holding on to her dreams just like everybody of us, walking down the mountains for hours to get education, while seeking for the world's sense of belongingness at the same time. #AETAGUYOD5

Happy Saturday 🌈 The next time I’m in London I’m going straight to @aidashoreditch
to try this beautiful pink latte! AIDA was my first stockist in London - a multi-concept store opened in 2012 by four sisters who named it after their Nan 💕
Don't compare your love stories to those you watch in movies. They are written by scriptwriters, yours is written by God. Graceful exit. 👊
