Friday Photo Flashback # 27

Friday Photo Flashback

When I was still in college, I enrolled myself in the Sign Language Learning Module. Our teachers then were the Deaf college students and it was really exciting to interact with them! I learned not only the American Sign Language but another culture. It was fun and educational and it was some of the best memories I had of my college life!

This was from our graduation day at the Sign Language Learning Module, December 1994.
Can you find me?
I am the one in the middle, with the red pants!

This was after a production made by the Deaf students and the SLLM graduates.
Can you see me?
I am the one standing...second from the left.

Its so much fun to reminisce about those times!

Ordinary people, extraordinary impact!

Ordinary people, extraordinary impact. That is the tagline you can read when you visit CNN Heroes page. Efren Penaflorida of the Philippines has been nominated and his life truly is an inspiration. Inspite of being bullied when he was in high school, he chose to do good towards strangers and help others. He encourages education for those involved in gangs, offering hope and change to these youth who have once taken the wrong path. You can vote for Efren as this year's CNN Hero, but aside from that, let us learn to live our lives like he did. Ordinary people with extraordinary impact.

Tuesday Couch Potatoes : Just Magical


Today's theme is JUST MAGICAL! I can't think of any other movie to feature but this one....

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy has definitely changed the landscape of the cinema. I remember watching the first day showing of each of the trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003). Each part was truly worth watching!

For more magical movies, head to Just About Anything.

Tuesday Couch Potatoes : Supernaturals


I am featuring Spiderman today!

I loved the movie! I felt that it was faced paced and the actor, Tobey Maguire, who played the role of Peter Parker, suited him. I also liked some famous quotes from the movie!

Not everyone is meant to make a difference. But for me, the choice to lead an ordinary life is no longer an option.

Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words: "With great power comes great responsibility." This is my gift, my curse. Who am I? I'm Spider-man.

Hop to Just About Anything for more great movies!

Friday Photo Flashback # 25

My friend Tracey just came home to the Philippines for a few weeks of vacation. I was so glad to spend my yesterday with her. She is one of my closest and dearest friends. I knew her through our church before, she's our youth pastor's wife. I was really sad when they moved back to Canada in 2001. So whenever they come to the Philippines for a visit, I make sure I spend some time with them!

The picture I am sharing now was taken during one of our youth group's missions trip to Bicol in 1999.

Thankful Thursday # 17

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

This week, I am joining Sonya's Thankful Thursday. You just need to write down five things you are thankful for this week and head to her site to link up!

1. I am thankful I got to spend a day with my friend Tracey, who came to the Philippines for a vacation. She is a real close friend and I really missed her! It was good hanging out with her and the family today!
2. I am thankful that there were several days that had sunshine, so people in the provinces could recover from the recent typhoon Pepeng.
3. I am thankful that we can share our old clothes and stuff to people who need them more.
4. I am thankful that our car who is 7 years old is still doing great!
5. I am thankful that inspite of a 0 page rank, I am still getting blogging opportunities from some sites!

Thank you Lord Jesus for your faithfulness and unwavering love. You are amazing!

Tuesday Couch Potatoes : Urban Legends


The theme for today is urban legends... I would like to feature Friday The 13th.

The movie mainly focuses on the fictional character of Jason Voorhees, who drowned at Camp Crystal Lake as a boy due to the negligence of the camp staff. Decades later, the lake is rumored to be "cursed" and is the setting for a series of mass murders. Jason is featured in all of the films, either as the killer or the motivation for the killings.

Whenever Friday falls on the 13th. it cant be helped but people think that the day brings bad luck. Maybe this movie franchise has really influenced the minds of the people.

For more movies, check out Just About Anything!
