I have gone through my wishlist for this Christmas and thought how to achieve them,  some could be attained by faith, by priorities and by my own acts. So if i have to work for it surely those on the list will come true.

However, there's this one thing i am wishing in silence and it did came true. With that i truly believed that wishes do come true but you have to work for it. It does not simply sit there and wait for it to come true. Because for my wish to materialize i composed a lot of hard work, patience, determination, courage and faith to get a good response.

My wish is so simple yet unachievable if i gave up easily and the other is unwilling. In all, i felt so glad for my wish came true.

By then i will never stop believing and hoping that wishes do come true. :)

I am sharing this post here from my other blog A Timeline of Destiny
Few more hours till it hit the time where almost everyone are waiting for --Christmas time! So have you ever thought of what gift you want to received for this year? I was just thinking mine and i haven't really had a good thought of it. If i say i haven't think of it yer, probably i was thinking at the back of my mind some material things that is too impossible to have right now. Like a Dream house, Dream Car! Ha ha! So absurd thoughts.

Anyway, while those things were running into my mind I've got the chance to check on my blogs and get back on those who left their comment on my box. One of my constant commenter is Joy of and as I was reading her recent post, I was a little bit surprised to read my name tagged at the bottom as she is spreading the viral post on ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS 2013.

The viral post got these rules to follow. 
  1. Make a post entitled, "All I Want For Christmas 2013," and please use the photo above.
  2. List 6 things that you want to receive as a gift.
  3. Tag 3 friends who will make the same post (no tag backs).
  4. Send me the link so I could check it too (optional).  
It asks for 6 Christmas wishes, and as I have said earlier I could not think of anything to wish for except that I wish everyone happiness, peacefulness, love and a blessed life to live on. While all my wishes for myself is rolled into one and that is ALL THE BEST for my EVERDEAREST DESTINY. 

But anyway, if it says rules are rules then I am bending down on the rules and laying down here my 6 wishes for this Christmas"

1. I wish everyone Happiness, peacefulness, good health love, contentment and serenity.
2. I wish all the best for my everdearest son - Destine Dean Gabriel Dela Pena
3. I wish to have more time to read.
4. ...more time to blog.
5. abroad. and,
6. ...wisdom!

Now, i am saying good luck for my tags :
tal - the pinay wanderer - 
wawan - the sweet escape -
marie imperial - la buena vida -

Merry Christmas to all!

I've been reading in my FB wall and Instagram this "selfie" status and I haven't really tried it until last night when i posted my own selfie thing in my Facebook wall. Selfie pertains to anything you did by your own like you take your own photo and posted it in your social media account. So I guess it's time to go with the trend. 

But instead of me taking my own shot i have asked somebody to take my very own version of selfie. "Selfie" for me means "simply just me and being me!"

It's cold Monday morning here, and i have a very good vibes for the week. Inspired probably. But i haven't taken my breakfast yet, because as usual i left home early every Monday. But i have with me a sachet of instant Cappuccino which is my breakfast for today. It smelled so good it's elating my mood and the taste is suave just apt for my hungry tummy.

It's also cool to sip it bits by bits while browsing my mails and at the same time reading my notes. With that, i say have a Cool Monday everyone!

It was my first time to try a burger this tall and that's here at Mama Windy's burger at it's best located along Carig hi-way, Tuguegarao City. 

The ambiance is cool and i never heard of this snack haus here until we were brougt yesterday by our Chief who treated us for a snack. Asked if what to order and i've turned my head to the server and querried if what's their best serve that kept their customer to come back and she said it's their special burger. So, I said am gonna try the talk of the town burger so i must not miss the trend. And there goes all my colleagues who ordered the same. We did enjoy our every bite of this big and yummy burger especially that it's a treat for our accomplishment for the day.

Yay! I've got a big burp after. Sure am try another bite next time.  :)

I guess my mind turned frozen recently, it went numbed and i could not think of anything to put my thoughts in writing. It was the aftermath of Yolanda's devastation, of Napoles controversy. Stress and worn - out probably. So i have to make it slow, to take a rest, retreat and make some reflections. 

In my retreat, comes planning and organizing for some undertakings which requires major decisions. Foremost, i have asked Gods guidance and wisdom for me to understand the things that is happening around me. I am glad that despite difficulty i was able to hurdle the doubts and hesitations that hit me on the rock. It's all about pursuing lawschool, and rearranging my life to have a good and better vision of things and circumstances along the way. 

As i embraced the new dimension of my life i realized that there's more that i can do i just need to give myself a break and a little room to move so if i stumble and falter i'll have some place to set aside the negative elements and soon get back on the move.

Now, as i gather all my strength to face life anew, l shall begin my ride with a good read, a good write and a good vision. After all, this is my life i'm making.

My professor quoted a quote about what can complete a persons life, as he encourages us to partake in preserving ecology and gives importance to our environment. He said: "the three things that could make your life complete are : 1) raise a family; 2) write a book; and 3) plant a tree." If you accomplish this, then you'll have a complete life of you.

It's easy he said and he had done two, raise a family and plant a tree, but writing a book seems impossible for him at the moment. Well, good for him at least he is almost there. He would just need to sit more to be able to start a book.

As for me? I think same with him, I was able to plant a tree, trying to raise a family and instead of writing a book, i blog instead. That, saying i have to lower down to attainable goals, if only to make a life complete.

But, in my belief, i think there is more to that. That is, if you have God in your life, then there's nothing more you need to fill in the lacking spaces. Or you shall see absences as incompleteness, but rather it's a life accessories which makes you a strong, better and faithful person.

I have this high craving to eat pansit the other day. It could be due to some hormonal changes, the weather or maybe because it's been a long time since i ate "Pansit" (noodles).

So i asked a colleague if he can treat us in a nearby Felicita's Panciteria. But it turned out that he is off the next day so we asked another one to treat us for Pansit.

 Felicita's is known in it's good taste of "Pansit Cabagan" in our local. So if you happen to pass-by in the North, you may want to add "Pansit Cabagan" in your list of a "must eat" pansit. You may also try the other Panciteria's within the town, but for me, I say Felicita's got my tastebuds on it. An order cost only P50, P60, P70 depending on the plate size you can consume.

Here, we choose P70/order and shared it for two, except for my one colleague who chooses chicken toppings so she got her a solo plate.

I won't say any word for this, but this served as our lunch already with a bill of 280.00 only. I felt so satiated with a burp! For one, because it's free, treated by our Ma'm here (the one with a long hair), he he! thank you Ma'm Susan! 

Next time, i'll have a better snap on this! :)

I remember when i was just inquiring about class schedules, subject, units, tuition fees and books in law school last year, my energy is so high so, alive, excited and enthusiastic.

Then, I did gone to law school and almost done on it's first year, save those subject with prerequisites and those that i might have flunked (since i haven't seen all my grades yet). 

Now, few more days and the second semester will begin again, but the zeal and desire to finish this race has slowed down, since at this point i wanted to make a turn. 

I've been contemplating hard this past days and the reason why I'm taking aback become more clearer and hence to name a few: 1) Law school demands much time in reading and I've got very few because of my work and being a hands-on Mom to my son Destiny, not to mention the laundry time, and household chores that was tasked to me; 2) Law school is so very challenging, schedule is so tight, sometimes it conflicts with my work; 3) Law school is so exhausting and it consumes more energy, thus, my body cannot cope up with the stress it brought me and i felt so tired that at the end of the say i could almost drop myself to bed and just sleep; 4) Law school is academically high, you must be well-versed with the laws, political system and legal procedures and jurisprudence, so you may be able to grasp the subject matter. A good background in law and legal system pays much, and considering my pre-law courses is in Medical field i have less knowledge in this area, and to get equally oriented i have to go back to the basic, and it will require again more time; and 5) some other personal reasons that i hope i can control.

In sum, I cannot cope with the demands of time that this studies requires and the challenge to make it is getting unclear in my vision. It's not because I can't but because there's more things that needs my time and maybe lawyering is not really for me or there could be something else that much suits for me. I remember that quote i read in my FB wall--"If God's says No! It means a redirection to something better which suits for me.

Just the same, after this time, my life will never be the same again. :)

I was strucked with nostalgic episodes lately. It must have been my Serotonin level dropping off and my body aching for some neeced rest. But, i think there are more reason why i am little wistful, this include our just concluded Final exam in law school. It was tough and think I flunk somewhere. 

 I've been in a series of exhausting task, and my mind is to idle to read more. I felt like i was in a stranded train, ready to offload at a nearby station and make some detour. I cannot think right so I need to stop to gain my right stance.

Then, another is the yearning to get home, to start again, to remake my disgruntled thoughts, to tame a feral and so elusive heart. To subdue his battle within and never restrain. To tell him that some love gone away and some never coming back. 

Then finally, i guess i just got tired, tired of breaking the walls he built in the middle of the bridge. Yeah! right, maybe I was just tired but didn't he told me to never get tired of waiting? of trying?

Counting them all? I can now give too many reasons to get nostalgic. What's yours?

Sunday, November 3, 2013


There'd been a lot of things that's crossing my mind and i kept on rumbling and vocalizing my mixed thoughts lately here, maybe because I want something new in my life and wants to get rid of this routinary things, and maybe just a little bored with the usuality of things around. Uh Uh! I've been thinking hard lately, so hard that it consumed much of my time. Now, the day is moving and it's moving forward, hence, i hope that my life will move as well. 

I felt so stucked in a doldrum of broken roads, of nostalgic Novembers and of nonchalant humanity. But troubled not, myself, because sun will always shine after the rain and when the colors of the rainbow starts to appear, it means a new hope so save you vigor.

Worries will only put you to waste your most precious time, hence, you won't get things done. Just give your self sometime and some space to find your self again. Pick your self up and never mind the fall, after all life is a journey and to spice it with happiness is different, is something you must give to yourself. To have a happy journey!

There's a lot of things that i want to do while the semestral break is on, among these are redesigning of my blog, going to some places, seeing people, whole day sleep, etc. But seems that time doesn't fit me to get things done. 

The usuals and familiar tasks demands so high of my time and because of this I've been contemplating to put down one thing --law school maybe, and get on with my passion in nursing career, that is to get my Intravenous Therapy Training done, Hospital duties and ready to take off? 

Find the right path in reaching my American or London dreams. Ahaha! Some of those weird and random thoughts that crossed my mind. But my point is that, it's just me who make my destiny, it's my choice, my will, my decision and my own volition. 

Oh, anyway, going back here, i hope i can really find time to make-over my blogs instead of thinking of abandoning it due to lack of time in updating it regularly. Oh time, be a friend of mine. :)

Tuesday, October 29, 2013


I've read a lot of beautiful stories and saw a lot of a must see awesome places in Europe. There's London to name the great. Even when i was a child I've already heard stories from people who worked there usually as a nurse how good it is to reach the place.

You study nursing or any other medical related course to get a good ticket in going there, they said, and then get the taste of the snow and bring home some euros. 

Thereafter, i have been dreaming to get to London, however, the road to get there is under construction and the detour i took leads me to an endless tunnel of mazes and  of crossroads. 

It took me almost 3 decades to fit myself in the nursing profession just to make turns when my dreams is in my hands. Now, starts again from the cradle in a desolate time. Will i ever get there?

Monday, September 30, 2013


September has been so hard for me. It drained me mentally and physically. Stress and pressures is all around the corner of my life. It deprived me of proper sleep and of time for my personal needs or of "me" time. With all these happenings i could do nothing but to head on with my life, wished that someone would wake me up when september ends.

But now that September ends, life constant challenges is here to stay, so what shall i expect for the October? Nothing, except that after October is November and December. Then here comes New year! another year to head on with my life's battle wether I am on the  winning or losing side.

Whatever life takes on me. I am but glad to have my eXtraOrdinary Journey is on it's way to discovering and learning for more.

I feel  so thankful with my classmate in high school and friend Anwar to be so generous and sending me copies of John Grishams ebook. Now i almost have all the books of my favorite novelist John Grisham. I so admire the writings of Grishams because it stirs me up in my sit to the point that i don't want to stop turning the pages or even put it down. Although i don't have the luxury of time in fun-reading i do hope to finish half of those books stored in my ibook library. As such i am still looking forward for more ebooks to enjoy reading. Meantime i begun my reading on John Grishmas's "The Appeal" as per advised of a friend. 

There, who wants to borrow some? :)

Is the grand summer vacation over now? But I haven't done with my getaways yet. My things to do has not yet been accomplished.

So it's June finally, and it's gonna be back to school again. To taxing law school again. However, i am adamant to go on at this point in time. That's because if i have to look into my long time plans, I couldn't see a career in law in the future. Since what i have in mind is to migrate some place overseas, try something new and settle away from my comfort zone. I'll find out how far I could go with my little Darling. But well, I have 8 long years to wait for that time and with God's grace and blessings.

For the meantime, I need to catch on the law on Persons and Family Relations, because there is one thing I need to understand on this matter and finally meet my counselor. So maybe I will go and live on what is here at the moment.

Literally, I've been waiting for my friend June to come out in the social networks, connect and get in touch. Even if all else fails, there's still that someone who is willing to hold on the string and stay.

Monday, May 20, 2013


I looked at myself in the mirror, It's still the very same me, gone through a lot of ups and downs, cross roads and detours along my journey. While those eye-bugs and fine lines that appearing under my eyes are signs of many sleepless nights when my skies are blue.

It's going to be tough in the days ahead, but I am going to live by it and forget about the age. For although I am not young, with age comes wisdom.

Fifteen months in exact since i haven't gone to Manila and missed my usual after 5 pm stuff here, but since my work is region based now, i already settled myself with the life in the province. No starbucks coffee, no big malls and not even KFC, that's why as soon as i got the chance to visit again Metro Manila i took all the time to savor what i've been missing. I went to SM- cubao and bought stuffs for my Destiny, but i have to skipped Starbucks since i have a very limited time to mall, but i cannot take for granted a dinner at KFC and eat my favorite original spicy chicken.

I was really not satisfied, he he... but maybe I'll just satiate my self in my next visit. :)

Monday, February 25, 2013


Summer is fast approaching, and as early as today i already have things to do in my list. Here's some:

1. I really need to sit on fixing, rearranging and updating my blogs. :)
2. Will attend summer camp reunions and visit some place.
3. Go back into sports. Lawn tennis maybe and swimming. Watch out for my blog entries with this. I am hoping to blog more.
4. Prepare and execute the 1st birthday of my darling Destine. Read on his stories at
5. Read. Eat. Pray.

I think that's just few but there are lots that must be done. Indulgence is necessary.

What about you? Have you listed your plans for summer?

Books Donation

I've received a call from my colleague the other day, asking if i need some books in school. When i asked why, he said Boss will give you all his books in law school. So i said why not.

I was a bit surprised though with the offer because i haven't told our Boss yet about my law school despite our occasional talking. When i asked this colleague of mine how did he knew it, he told me that he loosed tongue mentioning that i am indeed in law school and one of my teacher is Boss' Lawyer in one of his civil case which he is the plaintiff.

So anyway, the package was hand carried with a verbal message of :"use them now, and in exchange be my lawyer in the future".

I just laughed out and sent a Thank You message to him!

Fire it away!

Back to PR 1

It's been a while since i haven't joined the threads and forums of my blogpals, because of my ever busy schedule. Also, i rarely update this blog because i spent most of my time reading, reading and reading. However, i am not complaining because as of this writing i could say that i have a power knowledge lodged in my brain. Ha ha!

If i have the sufficient time to indulge in writing i have a lot of things to relate here. However less, i was so glad that my PR got back to 1, more hard work and maybe i could reach the rank of 2 although i've misplaced my rank in ALEXA. But that is far to dream on right now, as my books and cases we're waiting for me to be read.

Meanwhile, i'll content myself with what i have at the moment. :-)

why pain is necessary

Last night my professor related that while he is a student, his mom would constantly remind and guide him with a thought to live by, it says "Pain is necessary to people who you want to change and if you don't want them to change then don't cause them pain..." 

By analogy, it goes with saying, "I change because of you causing me pain, so don't ask why..." That is but just one, pain is necessary to make a person a better one.

Six days from now and we will sit on our Mid-term exam in law school, thus, i started outlining Articles which we covered for this term in subject Obligations and Contract beginning with Article 1189 - Article 1230 Book IV of the Civil Code of the Philippines.

I really have to burn eyebrows in this subject primarily because i have to learn its concept by heart, besides that i am not a commerce grad and i don't have a background on this matter, and to learn it best is to study the basic.

Leraning though is different from understanding as the latter entails a lot of HARD WORK and WISDOM but it pays, I'm loving the subject matter and the knowledge it gives me.
prolong writing cramps my finger.huh!
  So what now? Well, i don't need to perfect the exam but at least put the right concept on the problem asked and keep it in mind for future use. Ha! ha!

Oh well! i still have four more subject to review. :-)

One of my favorite author is John Grisham and i just finished his "The King of Torts." This is another great read, and i can't contain myself from turning to the next page but since i cannot read it in a single sitting it took me about 3 weeks to finish the book.

This is a story about a bright and young litigator Jarret Clay Carter II who has been an OPD (Office of the Public Defender) lawyer in Washington D.C. dreamt a better job in a real firm. 

I think Clay is frustrated in some way, forgot the canons of the law and crossed the street. More so, he is living simply became an instant multi-millionare which made him "The King of Torts" and got bankrupt the next day.

 I was a little bit disappointed with the ending though,something is lacking because i was expecting Clay has to face the jury and go after Oscar. I ain't satisfied with the ending.

Nevertheless, the lesson learned is -- Never to be greedy and never sell your case.

Aside from the lesson learned in this book, it also gave an insight on how is the legal system works in the U.S. specifically "Tort Law," plus Grisham made me feel that i am a lawyer in D. C.too. ha! ha!

There is more interesting in reading this book, to me as a newbie in Juris school with a pre-medicine background. What do i know about the legal system? Much more on it's language? Yet, this book taught me a lot about Law it made me understand the meaning of "Plaintiff." Honestly, I'm having a hardtime comprehending many legal terms even if i have to look at it's meaning in the dictionary.Words that are so technical.  Why, thanks to this book i was enlightened .:)
