(Thanks God and I was able to do my private work at my TENT office because my elder brother who is still jobless and bullying me so much was not in the house, and I had a time to have my “short” freedom.)

Last weekend, there was a big event happened and gathered by the most communities in the Feast. Kerygma Conference (or simply known as KCON) is the largest inspirational gathering in the Philippines started in 2007 by the Catholic lay preacher and bestselling author Bro. Bo Sanchez. And this year, on its 9th year, it was all about the Coming Home. And it was the time to attend the 4-day classes of the conference for the first time in my life. Continue reading

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Although right now I’m not in the United States (living in the Philippines by the way), I just still celebrate a holiday that most of my friends in the U.S. celebrate every fourth Thursday of November. Thanksgiving is one of the federal holidays in the U.S. and has been a rich history. There are parades, watching football games, and of course, eating a nice turkey (not a country, ah! Hehehe!) And because of this occasion, I just want to share about my experience to celebrate Thanksgiving while I was in U.S. 11 years ago. Continue reading

Road to Independence and Fight for Freedom

Episode 30 – Friday, November 20th, 2015 (6898)

I want freedom from the distractions in my life! In the past 10 years (since I came back home from the United States), I have fought for my self-freedom from the distractions and negativities inside the house. But until now, I’m still living with my family – my aged parents and my elder siblings with some “crab mentality” in their mind, so that I need to have an enough time for myself privately to stay away from their noisiness and “toxic” in the house.

At my age in near 30s and more matured, I want myself to set up my own life thru self-independence from my family that I’ve lived almost my entire life since birth (with the exception from 2004-2005 where I lived with my host family while I was an exchange student in the United States). I want to express my displeasures deeply about my family, and these are the reasons why I need to get out from the distractions in the house right now: Continue reading

Today is Friday, November 13th, right? So, it means today is Friday the 13th. And some of you have been suspicious on that day because it is considered as an unlucky day in Western superstition. During my childhood days, I didn’t believe this “superstition” of Friday the 13th, but when I grew up, this would be the unlucky day for me in my whole life.

In this episode, I don’t really want to remember the past incidents that made me so worse, but because today is Friday the 13th, I just want to share you about my worst experiences happened exactly on Friday the 13th. Continue reading

Better than Watching Philippine TV

Episode 28 – Thursday, November 5th, 2015 (6883)

Most Filipinos can’t miss single day without watching television. But nowadays, most TV shows (broadcasted from the Philippines) are so non-sense because of their contents such as telenovelas (mostly love stories or so-called kilig serye and “recycled” stories that remake or revived from the original stories or aired from the previous shows), “corny” comedy shows, variety shows, news (especially in dirty Filipino politics), even Filipino-dubbed foreign movies and of course AlDub (from kalyeserye of a popular longest running noontime show). That’s why I have almost never watched TV (except for sports and national events such as typhoon or national tragedy) which makes me so bored, being bad taste (baduy) and causes our beloved Filipinos (most especially the masses) irrelevant and prone to criticisms as well as bashing on social media especially about sick and tired “Network War” or dirty TV competition (bragging in high ratings, millions of tweets, and popularity).
