Karwa on Guinness World Records

When we were at friends home, I read an article of Karwa being included in the World Guinness Book of Records.  Go Qatar!mowasalat

“Qatar bagged yet another global first with the largest parade of Karwa buses, organised by Mowasalat, the public transport company, rolling into the Guinness World Records yesterday.
A 4.8km-long convoy of 325 Karwa school buses travelled a stretch of 5km on the Shahaniya-Dukhan highway, some 56km from Doha, breaking the existing record of 119 buses, created in Germany in January this year.”

The Love and Happiness in Giving!

The Universe Is A Giant Mirror

I’ve never forgotten that lesson in my life.

Life is a mirror. If I smile at the mirror, the mirror will smile back at me. If I frown, the mirror will frown back. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be very worried if I smile at the mirror and the mirror frowns back. Heebeejeebies.

The universe operates like a giant mirror. What I give, I receive. Most of what happens to me is simply a reflection of what I’ve been giving to the universe.

People ask me why my life is so profoundly blessed. One reason is because I’ve been giving.

Above are another excerpts from Bro. Bo Sanchez. You can read the whole story here: http://bosanchez.ph/want-more-miracles-be-generous/

Allow me to post another again from my readings. Since I subscribed to receive Bro Bo’s  blog update I can’t contain it to my self only but too happy to share his soulfood. The writings in italics are my contribution to the continuous generosity of good people here on earth.

Giving for me is reminding me that I’m so blessed that’s why I can share some of my blessings to others especially to those who are in need.

The feeling of happiness is unequaled if you’re generous to others. And we want our kids to do the same and continue what we have started from the past until the present time.

The surge of joy to see that we make other people happy by sending their kids to school especially in college amidst all the global crisis. That indeed poverty is not a hindrance to attain success. How I wish that in every Filipino who goes out of the country to earn a living in abroad can extend more help to send kids to school. And I believe that what you have  shared to others bounces back to you in hundred-folds.

I grew up learning from my parents from the examples that they had showed to us that sharing and sending some of our cousins to school is the best gift that they can give to them. And so when it’s my time to help a kid from my hubby’s province I never hesitated to offer a helping hand. And it started to one kid in elementary and I told myself how about one also from our town. Glad to say that she’s now in college and nearly she’ll be finished after 2 more years.

And as to my hubby, I’m very blessed that he’s molded and raised of being generous to others. Being good is deeply imprinted in his mind and in his heart.

Reaching out to my old and dear friends in times of their shortcomings even it’s not that huge huge amount of money  and in any other ways to comfort them I think I have made my contribution. How about you? What have you done lately to help?

Linus Turned 4!

IMG_3810We had a simple celebration for our loving and cheerful and smart boy in our home as he turned 4 last Thursday. He was too happy for all the Power Ranger toys he received from us and his sister.

I prepared a small party for them with our friends/ neighbor kids. we had balloons, cakes, nacho chips, chocolates, marshmallows, chicken nuggets and hotdogs.

He kept on saying that he has grown a little bit taller and bigger. And when daddy N arrived he hugged him very tight. He’s one happy boy:)

He waited for his uncle and aunt to come at night and their presence made him more happy. He always looks forward to seeing them during weekends.

We wish you great health son and more happiness. You’re doing great in the school and we are proud of you son. You are a good person and you are a mother’s pride:)

Former Pres. Cory Aquino is Gone

Former President Cory Aquino passed away at the age of 76 last August 1 at 3:18 am. She’ll be always remembered for all the great deeds that she has done for our country. Thanks for bringing democracy to our country. A political icon who showed and led  every Filipino to be united and to have a peaceful revolution to topple an abusive and corrupt regime. She’ll be always remembered by her determination and exemplary adherence to good values and her piousness. To a woman of courage  who bravely faced everything to restore our country, we’ll not forget you. Thank you very much for having you as our leader &  mother of our country…
