MAY Birthday Project 2011: SUCCESS!

We made a lot of faces (both patients & their guardians) SMILE once again. Thank you to everyone who supported us! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(group pic before the gift-giving)

We really scheduled my (very successful) surgery on an earlier date (last April) so that I would have been fuuly-recovered when the month of May comes and we could push through with my annual birthday gift-giving. God is great! Everything went more than what we have planned.

KCAT CAN: 28 years

OK fine, I'm already 28 years old. Twenty-eighTEEN! ;P

Most of us consider our birthdays as a significant and meaningful event in our lives. We celebrate it in different ways, but what is important is that we have to be thankful because it is the day that we had been given our precious life here on earth. We have to live through the days, months, and years in spite and despite all the events in our lives.

Having another birthday means a new day is waiting for us to experience life. We may be a year older, but we definitely grow wiser and stronger.

After taking a bath and cleaning my eyes this afternoon, I covered my left eye and checked my right eye's vision as always (to entertain myself) since I'm so happy every time I see the improvement of my vision.. Mababaw ang kaligayahan eh.. Pero super super nakakatuwa! And then I became happier! It became a little bit cleare compared to yesterday.. As in! I was able to identify how many icons are in my desktop.. Galing! Galing!

Words are not enough to describe how happy I am.. Anyway, here's a glimpse of how HAPPY I am..

O diba nakakatuwa!

Re: May Birthday Project on May21

Follow-up: We need to pack 160 pcs of loots for the patients of 3 charity wards & pedia ICU.. We still need a lot of toiletries, toys and add-on snacks like cookies; the number of tissue papers are enough already.. Check out my wishlist here. You can send in your donations until May 18, Wednesday.. Thanks!

For those who are joining the event, please confirm your attendance on the Facebook Event Page.

Goodbye Baby Nate!

I was shocked, saddened & out of words when I learned about Nate's passing. I only learned about it at noon since I woke up late today (everyday pala ;P).. After the heart surgery yesterday, he had a cardiac arrest 12:15 am and the doctor tried to revive him until 2am but his heart did not respond anymore.. Let's pray for Nate's family..

Angel Baby Jon, playmates kayo ni Angel Baby Nate diyan sa heaven ah.. ;)

It's Friday the 13th & it's May!

KCAT CAN: Conversations with God

Before submitting my article, I always re-read everything that I wrote, of course. And when I read what I recently wrote, I felt like crying, I cried without tears actually (super dry eyes), because I remembered all my conversations with God. I was so touched and happy because I got to experience all those super beautiful encounter with Him. Super WOW! And then I realized that my eyes weren't really dry, there are no tears yet, but moist.. God is great!

Like everyone else, I learned how to pray in my toddler years. I remember kneeling in front of my bed while putting my hands together in prayer position, just like what I would see in picture books and in kiddie shows. I prayed for simple things and prayed for everyone in the family.

"Natutuwa ako"

"Natutuwa ako!" Those are the words that kept coming out my mouth after I was discharged from the hospital. I AM HAPPY because my surgery was a super mega complete success, I kept noticing a lot of improvements and since my face won't show how happy I am, I kept on blurting out: "Natutuwa ako." and "Ang saya ko." Haha! So get ready, I'll enumerate all those improvements. Ready. Get set. Go. ;P

The day before the big day.. Talitha & I were fooling around
