Haiku-Hachi to Haiku Kyu

I thought of this as I was having breakfast yesterday. (Talk about sudden ideas.)

Wake up sleepy head
Start your day with a prayer
And live it fully.

This one below, I found written on my notebook dated sometime in May this year. I guess I was still on my 'emo' mode when I wrote this, haha!

Miss you
Waves of emotions
fills these empty mind and heart
I think I miss you.

I always get this light-bulb moments in unexpected places. Here's one while I was riding a jeepney on my way home.

Time is on your side
When you know how to use it
Spend it wisely, friend.

Great buys in National Bookstore

I love books, but I’m not the type who would go loco over book sales and patiently take time to find titles in those piles of unsorted books.

I am learning foreign language at the moment, and need some reference materials. I know buying those books could cause and arm and a leg, so I actually included it in my Christmas wish list. :P

And then I saw this sale by the National bookstore, and thought I’d try my luck. 

I went over few shelves scanning the titles, hoping to chance upon some references for my language study. Nothing here. I moved on to the ones on the tables where people keep tossing and turning the unpiled books. Skim, skim, skim. Nothing again.

I was ready to give up, as I was thinking “isn’t there something for me here?!’ As I turned to leave, my eyes caught a glimpse of that little book with a red spine. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I read the title, ‘Chambers French Verbs’ it’s as if it was there waiting for me!

I quickly glance over some shelves and found some similar books. I raided the place and found several language materials, other fun readable books, and imagine, I just spent about $10. It was my lucky day!

Now, I think my perception of book sales has changed. You’ll definitely find something; you just have to be patient on your quest to find it. ;)

A Pleasant Surprise!

Surprises really awaken that special feeling within me, from the most extravagant to the most simple ones. It makes me feel like I have something more than I have imagined.

We had a Kris-kringle in the workplace, as part of the Christmas season. One of the categories is ‘something delicious.’ Being a certified brownie lover, I put it on my wish list. I originally thought of asking one from Brownies Unlimited, but since the amount of the gift should only cost about $1, I thought it wouldn't be practical. So I just asked for a brownie at KFC, since it was more affordable compared to Brownies Unlimited.

But lo and behold! When I received my gift it wasn't from KFC, but from that particular brownie brand I was craving for. That simple surprise made me smile from ear to ear, not to mention filling my tummy with the delicious treats.

So I'm a layout artist now?!

I don't know why some people really have a lot of confidence in me.
You know, like when they count on you to do things for them.

Sometimes I wonder if they really believe I can do it, or they can't just find someone who will? Anyway, I would just like to think it's the first.

I'm no savvy in Photoshop or graphics design to be honest. But one of my friends in the office asked me to design a greeting card for her giveaways. I said I would try. She said I can. And so I tried.

Well, this is the result. It's simple, but I think it's decent enough. ;P
I hope she likes it.

Some things just don't go your way

As I was going home tonight, I've been thinking of the coming weekend, and my plan of treating out my cousin. I have already thought of where to go and what to do.

And when I got home, I was told that she needs to go home, tomorrow, because of an urgent matter. Wow. I was like what?! Are you serious??? But I've just thought of something to do with her...!

Well... I guess that's life. It let's you dream, and think to your heart's content, but it doesn't promise to make them all come true. More often, it gives you something unexpected. Sometimes it lets you down. But it shouldn't be a reason to whine, just because things didn't go your way. It's a reality of life and we have to deal with it.

I'll just think it's okay. At least we were able to spend time together even for a while. Anyway, treasured memory is better to remember than unfulfilled wish.

Some things will just don't go our way- plans, aspirations, even simple wishes. But it's not a reason to be unhappy. Who knows it might better that way, after all it could be a blessing in disguise that we just don't realize.

Don't be troubled

John 14:1
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in Me.

(A very timing verse for me, nice!)
When that fine line of sanity,worries, and feelings blur, that floodgate of thoughts just burst open, and we end up troubled and restless, it's good to realize we don't have to go through it alone. Jesus is there to help us out.

Isn't it Jesus' command not to feel troubled, why then is our spirit not in sync? Jesus didn't say these out of nothing. He even made a promise.

John 14:13-14
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask anything in my name , and I will do it.

Not He 'may' or 'can' do it but He 'will'. It's his way of telling us He would help us, all he needs is our trust. He can't work with us when we're in doubt. He works through our faith.^^

Just how can I see?
When there’s water in my eyes
And feelings pour out.

Haiku- Yon to Haiku-Go

Rain or shine I'm here
I won't leave nor forsake you
because I love you.

Why do you feel down?
See, My works are wonderful
One of them is you.

Silently I sit
Thinking "make a break or wait?"
I want to be free.


It's raining again
In my mind, and I'm lonely
Please save me from this.
