Mga Imbak na Marka: Tita Jonalyn


Feeling wistful of the passing year and the memories it will be bringing, I contented myself slumping on my bed on the remaining hours of 2010 hoping to find a comforting rest and eventually find a sound sleep (again) before the New Year’s Eve mass. Unfortunately I woke up a couple of minutes after 12 midnight and had missed all the merriments the New Year brings…

The colorful firecrackers display was almost gone. The smoky air was all that was left plus a bunch of smiling passerby and the sound of firecrackers blasting every minute. The street was a bit noisy unlike those of the previous years.

The recurrent rain showers have undeniably hampered the ways by which people celebrate the occasion outside their homes. I just hoped it did not affect at all the parishioners who will be celebrating the Feast of Mary, the Mother of God.


To begin my first blog entries for this year [the other entry should have been posted yesterday (the last day of December 2010), I intentionally reserved this slot for the treasures I found in my inbox beginning December 31, 2010; 3:22pm up to January 1, 2011; 5:02pm. Thanks to these wonderful people who never failed to inspire and cheer me up…

“Para di malasin ang NEW YEAR huwag mo isasali sa handa ang bilog na prutas na may itim na buto tulad ng pakwan, chico, atbp.

Wag ka rin maghanda ng ice cream para di matunaw ang swerte at higit sa lahat wag maghanda ng apat ang paa, baboy, baka, at kambing, at baka tumakbo ang swerte. Wag din ang isda at baka malunod ang swerte. Wag ka maghanda ng may pakpak tulad ng manok o pabo at baka lumipad and swerte.

Upang matiyak ang swerte sa 2011 wag ka na lang maghanda!

Tipid pa! Happy New Year Po!

New post for My Inbox [September]

Thanks to the following for keeping my cellphone packed with wonderful SMS quotes this September!

Rhan, Ireed, Ailene, Mam Gina, Mam Janelle, Mam Annaliza, Sheen, Emma, Suzette, Mam Julie, Tita Jonaly, Lourdes


“Learn to appreciate what you have…

Before time forces you

To appreciate what you’ve lost.”

Lourdes [September 14, 2010; 19:53]


“When you have a place to go at the end of the day – that is home;

When you have people to love – that is family;

When you have someone whom you can be yourself and accepts and cares for you in whatever circumstance – that is a friend.

When you have all these – that is blessing.”

Mam Tintin [September 5, 2010; 06:10]


“It’s always up to you how you’re going to run your life. Run it for good, or ruin it that bad…

Yes, people will care and try to shift you back to the right track.

But at the end of the day, it is still your choice that matters.

Choose what you love then love your choice!”

Sheena [September 4, 2010; 13:16]


“Whenever God puts you to test, just remember:

People who fall the hardest, bounces back the highest…

Always keep your perfect FAITH intact.”

Ailene [September 2, 2010; 21:23]


“Every good friend is an image of God. It is one of life’s best blessings.

A priceless gift that can never be bought sold, or forgotten.”

Zea May [September 6, 2010; 22:05]


“Having few friends is better than having a large network of pretentious friends…

… quality beats quantity all the time!”

Ireed [September 2, 2010; 19:41]


“Life would not be real without the lessons we learn, without the experiences we encounter and without the special people called Friends to share.”

Suzette [September 5, 2010; 12:13]


“When you have achieved level of comfort to expose yourself to another without fear of judgment,

Then you have achieved true friendship.”

Rhan [September 2, 2010; 16:36]


“When it comes to being happy, there is no right or wrong thing….

It’s just a battle between your happiness and their judgment.”

Emma [September 7, 2010; 09:17]


“There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your heart. So you’d better learn the sound of it. Otherwise, you’ll never understand what it’s saying. – Sarah Dessen (Just Listen)

Mam Julie [September 2, 2010; 16:04]


“One great form of wealth is KINDNESS!

It does not diminish no matter how much you give.

Rather, it increases the more it is shared.”

Mam Gina [September 5, 2010; 08:08]


The purpose of your time on earth is not primarily about acquiring possessions, attaining status, achieving success, or even experiencing happiness… Those are just secondary issues….

Life is all about love – with God and with other people.

You may succeed in many areas of endeavor

But if you fail to learn how to love God and love others,

You’ll have missed the reason why God has created you.”

Tita Jonalyn [September 5, 2010; 22:35]


“One of the happiest things on earth is when you know that you’re in love with someone,

who is more in love with you…”

Emma [September 7, 2010; 09:29]


“Prayer is the best therapy for trials andpains….

Faith is the best medicine for hopelessness and destructions.

Put them together, God’s love will be yours forever.”

Mam Janelle [September 5, 2010; 06:37]


“One good reason why we should pray:

It’s because God can do more in five seconds than what we can do for ourselves in five years….”

Mam Annaliza [September 5, 2010;06:14]

Tita Jonalyn [February 26, 2010; 23:56]

“Often we stand at life’s crossroads and view what we think is the end. But God has much bigger vision and He tells us, “relax, it’s just the bend, not the end.”



“Life begins as a guest of the child for the man, and ends as a journey by the man to rediscover the child.”




“You should love d person whose been with u thru the most trying times. Who lied just to make you feel better. Who never stop believing in your weird, complicated excuses. Who face the consequences of your doings. Who encourage u to stand after every downfall. Who manage to be d strongest even in ur weakest moment.

Love dis person for dis person is all u got in ur darkest hours.

“Love is not a noun that names what you have..

never a pronoun to be able to replace something.

must not be an adjective to describe a feeling.

nor a preposition to place where you want it to be.

It’s more than a conjuction to show a connection or an interjection to exaggerate what you feel…”
