Thank you for being born Major!

Happy Birthday Major! I know you don't celebrate your birthday since you're a Buddhist. But I want to greet you anyway. Thank you that in the __ years of your existence (in this lifetime), we have crossed paths and you have helped us, a lot! Thank you for being born.

Thank you CLIS!

Just last week, I was looking for Twinings in Unimart, but it isn't available. Out-of-stock maybe, so I settle for another brand/s. Yes, I went 'tea shopping'.. And when I came home this afternoon, I saw this gift:

Sir Jean Henri Lhuillier and Sir Jonathan Batangan of Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance Solutions!

P.S. I loooove what's written in the card.. So Happiest Pinoy!
"This Christmas Season may love and charity be our guiding light as we let hope and happiness shine bright..."
Christmas. Love. Charity. Light. Hope. Happiness. Bright.

Greetings from ME!

This yuletide season, let us not forget that the Star of Christmas is Jesus Christ. It is not about the decors, the gifts, and delectable foods that are served on the table, but rather, it is the birth of the BRIGHTEST STAR who saved us all. For this reason, may we all be thankful and be merry. Happy Christmas to you and your family and may you have an awesome year ahead!

KCAT CAN: My brightest star

On December 25, we'll be celebrating the birth of our Brightest Star, our savior, Jesus Christ. Even though it's children's (picture) book, it inspired me to write this article.

My Brightest Star

Christmas is a time of celebration, a season of enjoying sumptuous meals and special treats with family and friends. But in the midst of merriment, let us not forget the star atop the Christmas tree, and the real reason why we celebrate Christmas: Jesus Christ. With Him as our star, we can definitely move forward and twinkle brightly.

This reflection was in my thoughts after reading the book “Brightest,’’ published by Isshin Dream Publishing. A picture book for children and adults as well, “Brightest’’ imparts a deep message that tugs at the heartstrings.

I'm super happy to be APO NI GALS!

December 17. It's Papa (Lolo)'s Birthday today. Although he already passed away 11 years ago, we can still feel his presence whenever we have a (Lopez) family gathering. No, it's not that we can't get over his passing, but we are happy, we had him in our lives.

FB with Karen

Karen Bernal & I have been friends since after I featured her on my column. I already knew her before the article came out, and then we really got to know each other and became closer after after constant FB'ing, YM'ing & texting. I'm happy to be her inspiration & confidant. She visited me when I was in PGH last April, but my operation was still on-going that time.

FINALLY! We met last Friday!

FB as in French Baker ;P

KCAT CAN: One fine friendship

Friends through thick & thin; thick because Teresa is on the chubby side, and thin because my Madge is so skinny. Hahaha. Teresa is Madge's salbabida, while Madge is Teresa's panungkit. LOL. Anyway, just read my column.

One fine friendship
by Maria Kathrina Lopez Yarza

Whenever Madge introduces me to her old friend from her grade school or high school days, her first line would always be, “She was my best friend in…” I would often tease her that each one of her classmates had become her best friend and we would both laugh.

But there was one person who is best among the rest; she’s Teresa Rivera whom she is friends with since grade school, up until now that they have grandchildren.

CDO Bloggers:Project Cadayunan Primary School

the Cagayan De Oro Bloggers will hold an outreach program in the newly opened public primary school in Besigan. Cadayunan Primary School is 52 kilometers away from the city proper and most of the people in the area are farmers with no regular transportation except dump trucks provided by the city government to help the people transport their farm products. Before it the school was operational, the cildren used to walk 12 kilometers to and fro everyday to reach the nearest school. This resulted to in-attendance; most of them was skipping school and eventually stopped going to school.
