The Brown Raise Seminar

We had our Brown Raise seminar just a while ago. Our church had a job well-done. Everything was perfect. The two speakers, Sis. Anne Lao and Pastor Butch Conde delivered the most inspiring messages I've ever heard.

I can almost feel Sis. Anne Lao's burden to uplift the Filipino Raise. Her messages, stories told and examples were so inspiring that on some part, I almost cried. She also presented the film Bayaning Third World which I heard some time ago but neglected. It was a good film and I regret the fact that I did not watch it. I also learned that our national hero, Jose Rizal was indeed a protestant. There is even an issue of recantation that was also raised in the film Bayaning Thrd World. I think Rizal was like Martin Luther.

All in all it was a great seminar that I wished every Filipino will be able to hear. That's one of my prayer so that the Filipino race will not lose their pride and dignity as Filipinos and will love thier country like Rizal did.

What is the Brown Raise?

The Brown Raise is a movement to CREATE A NEW PATH for the Filipino people -- that his world need not always have to revolve around the shallowness of money, pleasure, and survival, but that he us also capable of remarkable character, dignity, honor, visions for humanity and depth of nationhood.

The Brown Raise is a movement that seeks to unlock the secrets and strengths of a race and country which was once called, "the pearl of the orient seas", and to discover and pursue the Philippines' unique contribution to the hall of nations.

The 21st century Global Pinoy must have the spirit of the Brown Raise...the same spirit that Rizal, our national hero possessed from childhood.

"As a child I was educated among Spaniards; I was nourished on the great exemplars of the history of Spain, of Greece and Rome; afterwards in Spain my professors were all great thinkers, great patriots. Books, newspapers, [historical] examples, reason, ALL MADE ME DESIRE THE GOOD OF MY NATIVE LAND...I was so far from thinking that I was doing wrong that I have never wanted to accept the protection of another nation; twice I was offered German nationality, once the English, and I have never accepted."

Malls have already extended their mall hours to accommodated last minute shoppers. I can’t understand why some of us do this--last minute shopping. Maybe because of hectic schedules, or financial matters.

The Spirit of Bear-iuca

Mariuca invited me to join in passing on the Spirit of Bear-iuca Meme


Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a powerful Genie Princess named Mariuca who was known throughout the land as the friendliest, most popular blogger in the blogosphere kingdom. Adored and admired by international visitors and commentators from around the world, the Genie Princess travels the blogosphere on her magical flying carpet, always looking for ways to share her good fortune with others.

Over the past two years of blogging, Mariuca has met so many new people, from all walks of life and all over the world, each one bringing a little of their culture and lifestyle when they visit and comment on Mariuca’s two sites. So on her 2nd Blog Anniversary, Mariuca wanted to celebrate with all of her international blogosphere buddies by hosting a bear-naming contests at Wishing On A Falling Star and Mariuca’s Perfume Gallery and to pass her two lucky, cuddly teddy bears along to the winners who came up with the best names.

On the opposite side of the world, from the moment Roxy (the prolific Roxiticus Desperate Housewives blogger) and her sweet daughters London and Maddie saw the teddy in his personalized t-shirt and blue muffler at Wishing On A Falling Star, they knew that he needed to come to live with their family in Mendham, NJ. The three New Jersey girls named him immediately and burst into a wonderful song for BEAR-iuca:

BEAR-iuca, BEAR-iuca, amazing teddy cheer.
BEAR-iuca, BEAR-iuca, we’d love you to come live here!

Mariuca received 16 possible names for the Mariuca Teddy Bear, making it hard for the Genie Princess to choose just one…then Alakazam! A bolt of lightning delivered the perfect way to share BEAR-iuca’s good fortune to bloggers around the globe. While the soft, stuffed, cuddly BEAR-iuca is on his way to live with Roxy, London, Maddie and Rex in the Roxiticus Valley, the Spirit of BEAR-iuca is racing through the blogosphere to bring happiness, holiday cheer, and beary best wishes to everyone who welcomes him into their online home and passes along the BEAR-iuca good luck charm to ten friends.

If Santa's Real

Do you believe in Santa Claus? I don’t, but I wish there is really a real Santa Claus who can grant wishes of every people on earth, young and old. When I was a child I thought Santa was real. That he goes down the chimney to put his gifts under our Christmas tree. I later realized that the persons who fill my Christmas stocking with lots of goodies are none other than, my parents. Right. Funny. How could they do that to me? Hahaha!!!

Anyway, Christmas is near. Do you got a wish? Let say Santa is real, and he can grant your wish immediately, what will you wish for? Hmmm…tough question, right? Well, It’s a challenging question, I know. As for me, I can’t think of anything aside from materials things, like the digital camera and Iphone that I’ve been dreaming about. This is because I know that the one thing I want could not fit in his sack of gifts…it can’t be bought. Only God can make it happen. But if it’s only that easy to sit on Santa’s lap and ask him something like what I did at Ceiva’s, it would be great.

Yes, I was able to sit on Santa’s lap and wished for an iphone, but alas, it’s not available. He offered me a digital frame instead, hahaha! But Ceiva’s digital frame is a nice gift for Christmas. I’ve never seen any other digital frame like this. Its sleek design captured my eyes and made me wished to receive one like this on Christmas as well.

Well, anyway the site is actually having a contest where contestants can win $500. You just need to watch Santa’s video, fill in the needed info, upload a photo and wait if you will be picked out from the random raffle draw. So visit here, and play the game. Who knows, you might be the lucky contestant.


Sad news...


I didn't win the BDJ contest, tsk tsk tsk..that means I have to buy one for my self...

then, my PR was gone! huhuhuhu!!!!!



Blogger Personality Game

While doing mg regular EC dropping, I came across night click's blog and saw a fun game. It's called the blogger personality game. Actually it's not really a game, it's somewhat like a blog analyzer. You can type your blog's url here and after a second, you can have your result. So here's mine.

The Doers

The active and play-ful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.

The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.


Just want to post our group picture taken a while ago...We all wear red today. It's our last General Assembly for the year. These are the wacky, exciting and funny Benpres employees :D

It's December!

...and its 23 days before Christmas, wow...how soon time flies.
Have you noticed? Time passes by like a bullet. I'm not sure if its because I'm busy with lots of stuff or I'm getting old that's why time flies fast unlike when I was younger, or does it have something to do with God?

I'm not sure, I'll discover that later...

Anyway, for me the passing of time is an advantage. I really miss hubby and I can't wait for April 2009.
