Nawala mo phone mo, ang sabi nya

"Nawala mo phone mo", ang sabi nya.
"Ay hindi ate, gamit ko pa, ito nga o pinangtatawag ko sa'yo", sabi naman ng pilosopo kong isip.

Pangatlo na itong pagkakataon na hindi pa masyadong matagal sa akin ang isang gadget ay nananakaw ito sa akin nang hindi ko namamalayan. 

Una ay noong nasa first year college ako at nakuha din ang pinaka-una kong cellphone ng isang matandang babae sa loob ng CR ng college building namin.

Ikalawa ay yung mag-1 year pa lang ako sa work at ang unang mp4 player ko na isang linggo pa lang ata sa akin yun ang nakuha. Nakatulog ako sa likuran ng FX at kasama ko doon ang isang lola. Pagbaba ko ng fx, pagkapa ko sa bulsa ng bag ko, wala na. Ok, baka gusto mo soundtripping ni lola.

At ngayong ikatlo ang pinakamasakit... mahal na mahal ko talaga yung phone na yun: HTC One X phone mula sa kapatid ko. Kaka-apat na buwan pa lang mula nang magkaroon ako ako nito at naging productive talaga ang pag-organize ko sa aking blog/devotionals/creative accounts/notes/tasks/calendar/alarm clock, etc.  Malupit ang camera kaya talagang pinanghihinayangan ko ito ng sobraaaaaaa lalo na at ang mga kuha ko mula sa Hillsong Worship concert kagabi na hindi ko pa naa-upload!!!!!! sayang ang mga kuha ko ng malulupit na light designs.... :( idagdag ko pa ang magandang sound quality ng HTC phone!!!! ay........ hay.

Nanakawan ako nang pasakay na ako ng jeep sa may tapat ng Ali Mall, mga bago mag-alas nuwebe. Maraming sasakay at ako na sana ang sasampa pero may matandang babae na tumabi sa akin kaya siya na pinauna ko at nagtaka ako dahil habang pumapasok ako ng jeep ay nakapa ko ang bag ko na bukas na ang zipper. Pag-upo hinalungkat ko ang laman ng bag at wala na nga ito, kasama ng Suki Card, mga listahan ng savings at binayaran, kaunting Post-it na fuchsia, P100 at ang puso ko. Ay di pala, andito pa naman ang puso ko the last time I checked. :P

Hillsong Worship No Other Name Asia Tour [Manila]

Manila: first stop in the No Other Name (but Jesus) Asia Tour of Hillsong Worship.
April 10, 2015 was an awesome night at the MOA Arena with Hillsong’s church band indeed

† = 

What do I love about tonight’s event?

1.       The title. Using No Other Name (same name of their album) as title was so great to proclaim that the sovereignty of Jesus is limitless and ultimately unbreakable.

2.       The band. It’s been so many years since Darlene Zschech came to Manila while Hillsong United had been in the country for several times but most of the members of Hillsong Worship were first timer to visit us and hold a concert here. I believe they had so much fun and blessed as we were. Though some were disappointed not to see Joel, Taya, Matt, Jad and others. Hello!!! They belong to the United band! Maybe next year they’ll be here for Empires tour perhaps ;) Let’s hope! If I'm not mistaken, Hillsong Worship is the church's band, formerly known as Hillsong Live while United emerged as the youth band same as Young & Free. But since the groups are all from Hillsong, they share people, skills and talents somehow to be able to release amazing songs and awesome worship events to God's glory (e.g. Jonathon being with us tonight).
A major plus was the members did not mention their names and I believe they showed humility by their church’s culture. For we do not worship this group and we come to gather under one goal - to lift up the name of Jesus!

3.       The lights. Superb lighting designs. I’m still speechless. I'd really love to learn and try the art of lighting!

that magical light!
4.     The song line-up. The slow songs fill up most of the set list and the crowd were all glorifying the name of the Lord with a heart of praise. Anyway, for some time I imagined myself singing in heaven along with many people though I have some observations but I’d just like to keep it to myself this time.


5.       The free ticket! Yey! I actually failed to purchase a ticket for this event last February. I thought I’d be able to secure a good seat but no! Filipinos were too overwhelmed about their coming that the tickets were sold out in a couple of weeks and I lost hope. But the Lord knew the desire of my heart and my prayers... I tried to enter at least three online contests for ticket giveaways but did not win any hehe. And just a day before April 10, I received a private message from the Positively Pinoy (supporting the Edge Philippines 24/7) and told me that they’re giving me a gift, a free ticket for the event! I almost cried, I felt so much appreciated by just tuning in to their station most of the days of the week. Thank You Lord for this blessing! Thank You the Edge, +PP!
