Sweltering Hot!

These days, umbrella, water bottles, fan, AC, and etc are my best weapons to beat the heat. Even late at night when the sun is down, the heat is causing a lot of us some sleepless nights. Look at the temperature:

Yesterday was even hotter at 36.3 degrees Celsius. Darn! Now I'm hoping for rain to come on this drought.

It's officially summer so let's keep it cool!

Drive, motivation where are you? I once had you but you're gone. Time's fleeting and there could be no other time to have you both but now. You always cast that light, spark and color in every dark and dull corners of the corporate world. Come and take me away from this unhappy and routine-oriented pit hole that I am in right now. Or perhaps transform it from a mundane to a competitive , professionally goal-driven and blissful paradise. If not, at least make it a haven of money trees where I can see it overflowing with my fruits of labor and not a labyrinth where scams, deceptions and lies thrive or rot.

Shepherd, I Thank You

I grew up in an environment that recognizes the significance of Holy Week. My kin's not a band of Saints nor a group of religiously perfect believers. However, everytime this special week comes we're always expected to follow certain Filipino traditions and be the best sheep that we can be. This is one of the best times to contemplate or remember the sacrifices of the great Shepherd, of how He sacrificed His life to save and protect us from eternal damnation. My initial thought in writing this post was to thank someone I know like my mom, my whole family or a friend. But as the thoughts continue to flow and words started to spin, I realized that without the sacrifices and love of our meek, kind and humble Shepherd, we wouldn't be here thanking the people that we love. Therefore, this post is for the only begotten son, Jesus.  He did change my life. How about yours?

I Thank Him.
