" A good Snapshot stops a moment from running away."

When you photograph people in color you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls! ~Ted Grant

I captured this photo because this is memorable moment to me, I see my two Kuyas and My only loving sister once in two years.
I am really glad i have this snapshot to keep until we get old. I miss them so much. When we were together, we shared all the joys and tears.
Kuya Dan is our eldest, he's quite strict and disciplinarian, he is caring but he is not demonstrative, Ate Dines is very organize woman and she always complain that i am very slack and disorganize. She is so neat and clean, she loves me so much more than i ever know!!! My world will not be like this without her, by God's grace.
Kuya Nemrod is our hero, he is very thoughtful and caring. We could never find a person like him. The most calm person in the world!!! He hardly get angry. Long patience.. sometimes i am naughty!!!
Hey!! I love them so much! I miss them.

Phuket Tour

Patong beach


Phuket is Thailand’s largest island, approximately the size of Singapore. The island is connected to mainland Thailand by a bridge. It is situated off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea. The region has an area of approximately 570sq. kms. and is made up of 1 large and 39 small islands. Phuket formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber. The island was on one of the major trading routes between India and China, and was frequently mentioned in foreign trader’s ship logs. The region now derives much of its income from tourism.

Being involved with Smart Collaborative Project between Malaysia Perlis University and Hatyai University Thailand, they always gave us good treat when the project done, last year we tour around the City of KL( Kuala Lumpur), that was great and fun. Last year, we went to Phuket, we stayed in one of the hotels in Patong. I was able to go to island for snorkeling, but ohhhh!!i just went down to the water for couple minutes. It was fun but i am afraid of water.

At night we went to the Phuket show and it was fantastic, they have a very huge theater, we watched elephant show ,many other Thai Dances and performances.
I've been here in Thailand for about four years, but that was my first time visiting Phuket.
It is westernlike view, houses, hotels, malls, bars,and restaurant. Maybe, 75% westerners live in Phuket. I seldom see Thai people walking around. Phuket is wonderful place for relaxing.

With Pdt Johan and Wife, Mommy Vera, Mama Betsy
GPDi Church with some relatives

Pdt. Johan and Pdt. Clif
The General Consul and her deputy Ivan

Mid of October 2008 , we had a very good time in Manado Indonesia, I was able to meet the family, relatives and Christian friends of my hubby. We spent only couple of weeks there but it's worth.
We went to Manado City and visited the consulate for some papers purposes, we met the very approachable General Consul and staffs they are very accommodating and helpful especially in helping to process our papers. We invited them to attend our reception party in the following day. In our surprised they came, all of them and spent time with us for almost the whole night, we had very good time together. I appreciated so much for their presence. According to Madam it was first time that a Filipino invited them for a wedding party, so they came to show support as Filipino family. Manado Salawesi is a very beautiful city with Christian environment. As we tour around the whole city I noticed that the churches there are huge, as in huge!!! It's amazing and the churches are just next to each other. I saw also at the top of the mountain facing the whole city there is a big statue of Jesus and the hands covering the whole City. It is very wonderful. We were busy every night visiting relatives. C and I had nightly speaking engagement. Youth night and adult fellowship, we were so busy of the minsitry, we don't have time for oursleves but in any case we were busy for the work of the Lord. Sunday service C gave the sermon and I was amazed! well, It was my first time to see and heard him on the stage preaching. I almost fell on my chair, I saw him real P. I thought it was only a dream to see my hubby in the Pulpit preaching, well, i am a blessed woman. The next Sunday we were not able to attend the service because we have to leave for Thailand, I miss them so much new family, friends and relatives. They are very nice people.

Rejoice and Be Glad

Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated.... So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised. It isn't a badge of honor nor is it something we should pursue to validate ourselves, but if you are living even a moderate effective life you will be criticized. Jesus said that we would have trouble in this world. There will be those who will rise up to oppose you, resist you, and complicate your life. Most often they will be removed from the actual conflict, making no sacrifice, taking no risk, but always ready to criticize you from their cheap seats above the fray. Jesus lived an example life. No, Jesus lived a perfect life.And yet, no one has ever been criticize more than he. They criticize everything about him. If Jesus wasn't immune from criticism, how can we expected to be? Anticipate it, get used to it, and allow it to spur you on. From the example of Jesus' life we learn that being criticized is far better than being one of those cold, timid souls who never discovers the joy of victory after a hard-fought struggle. The year 2008 was my triumphant year it is because of His great love to me. It is far beyond my expectation that my husband found his lost rib last year, and it's meh!! God fulfill the desire of my heart to serve him with my family. My husband is young in age but matured in committing his life to the Lord. We now here in Thailand with great desire to fulfill God's calling. I was able to visit Indonesia to meet his family. before i met my hubby two years ago I and my Mommy Vera planned to go Indonesia just for break it wasn't realize because of different circumstances, and I never expected that the Lord prepared a man for me who is an Indonesian, just "Delight yourself unto the Lord and He will give the desires of your heart". Now i believe in my heart that God starts to fulfill His plan in my life according to will. Looking back years ago, satan is really trying to destroy my life even to the point of killing me( killing me softly... song goes!!!!) Well, well Jesus is our Victory so we always and forever victorious! Amen!

To all my friends, I'm back.
