Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

2013-07-08 05.45.47

If you made a mistake Yesterday,

correct them Today,

 flourishing harvest will come Tomorrow.

If you’re not satisfied with Yesterday,

Improve them Today,

And you will gain more Tomorrow.

Yesterday is a thing of the past

Today is a  wonderful story to be told

Tomorrow’s a great promise to unravel.

If you fought Yesterday,

Make amends Today

And the sun will shine bright Tomorrow.

Yesterday you loved

Today you’ve been hurt,

Tomorrow you will love again.

No matter what happened Yesterday,

Today is the beginning

Of Tomorrow’s Tale.

Titanium

It’s time to unleash the singer in you…come and sing along with me 🙂

Titanium


You shout it out
But I can’t hear a word you say
I’m talking loud not saying much
I’m criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

I’m bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium

Cut me down
But it’s you who has further to fall
Ghost town, haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I’m talking loud not saying much

I’m bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium, I am titanium

Stone-hard, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone-hard, thus bulletproof glass

You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium

Mask

mask

 

I’ve been hiding behind a mask,

A mask of aloofness.

I’m afraid people to see me,

because they would never dare to like me.

Are you trying to know me?

Or did you prefer to believe what they say about me ?

I will never take off this mask.

Behind this, I’m stronger.

I’m Bigger!

 I can be who I want to be.

Without this, I’m feeble.

I’m a schmuck!

I’m a worthless bitch.

That’s how they see me.

Well, that’s how they want me to be.

But with the help of this Mask,

I can fight back!

I can be a fearless Dragon,

Ready to breathe fire.

Remove all my inhibitions,

And explore the world without  dread.

Make the impossible feasible,

and to cry without anyone knowing.

Behind this Mask I’ll stay,

Forever hopeful that someday

People will realize,

That me and my Mask are one and the same.

My kids loved it! They finished the whole batch including the rice 🙂

Try it yourself. A little tip, I added salt just because I added water and a pinch of sugar can make a lot of difference.

An Interesting Promise from a Drink

I found these Health Drink products at Watson’s that caught my interest. It has an intriguing promise to its customers. “Beautiful Skin” and “A Better Digestion”, surprisingly coming from a drink called “Beauti Drink“. I decided to buy one of each kind to test it myself, and if I’m satisfied probably make some recommendations.

2013-09-27 06.39.45

These products came from Thailand and is now in the Philippines made possible by Sapanan General Food Co., Ltd.  Which also produces Mogu Mogu Drink that my kids love. This Beauty drink has three variant: Collagen (Pink, White Grape), Fiber (Lime Green, Limeand Chlorophyll (Olive Green, Apple which I was not able to purchase because it was not available).

Collagen 

As the label indicates:

Normally our body can productively generate Collagen by itself until the age around 20, and then the production rate gradually declines and causes the skin to lose its moisture. In order to maintain the skin’s moisture and avoid skin shrinkage and wrinkles, it becomes necessary to substitute the self-generated Collagen by the intake of extracted Collagen. Generally from chicken skin, pig tendon, cow tendon or fish scale. However, the source of high quality and highly effective Collagen that is SAPPE Beauti Drink which contains 1,000 mg of extracted Collagen from deep-sea fish.

According to a piece research study, the intake of extracted Collagen of 3,000 mg/day for 30 days can help increase skin moisture and reduce wrinkles.

Collagen: Tighten hair follicle, Prevent Osteoporosis, Alleviate shrinkage and maintain skin elasticity and Increase skin moisture.

As for me:

I haven’t tried beauty products that are in liquid form or drinkable, but this beauty drink does taste nothing like something that is medicate or has medical properties in it. It taste so good and taste so healthy since it is not too sweet nor does it has a bitter taste. If a product that taste this good promise to give you a healthier skin, it’s a two thumbs up for me!

Fiber

As the label indicates:

For anyone who wants to maintain good figure and weight, including those who lack vegetable and fruits intake, the 8,000 mg fiber in each bottle of SAPPE Beauti Drink is equivalent to 2 big Pomelos or 8 small tangerines. Fiber helps digestive system to work efficiently and helps prevent intestinal cancer. L-Carnatine, on the other hand, is an important substance in promoting the fat metabolism. Therefore, this is a perfect product to drink during your diet and exercise programs.

Recommended daily intake: 25,000 mg per day, L-Carnitine helps promote the fat metabolism and is good substance for intake during diet and exercise  programs.

As for me:

I’ve always been a  fan of Papaya and Okra as laxative in times of irregular vowel movement. Haven’t tried laxative tablets either. But this Lime flavored drink from SAPPE Beauti Drink sure does give me another better and easier option to keep those toxins out  of my system. Plus  it has L-Carnitine that would help promote fat metabolism and taste really good toohitting 2 birds in one stone not bad at all! To top that, one bottle of this drink equals to two pomelos or eight tangerines, it’s another 2 thumbs up!

I wish I have tried the other Variant Chlorophyll 😦 so I can give a personal insight. But I’ll be on the look out. As soon as it is available and  will surely buy one and give my update. Hopefully this last variant will not disappoint me. I am pretty optimistic that it wont 🙂 So go buy yourself a bottle because it is very reasonably priced and go choice the drink variant that you think would fit your need.

I had you on my Birthday

Baby Tanya

I had you on my birthday.

We didn’t plan it nor

we didn’t pray for it,

But I guess God gave me more reason to commemorate the day I was born.

Belat

You were a pretty awesome gift.

A gift, I will forever be thankful for.

I named you Nathania Ysabella for two simple reasons,

Nathania  is of Hebrew origin, and its meaning is “God has given”.

Isabella is your father’s chosen name,

it too has a Hebrew origin. It means ‘God is my oath.’

I changed the “I” to “Y” to make it a little bit different since this name is very prevalent.

A few months after your name “Ysabella” became a TV series.

Tanya

You gave us so much joy,

You brought meaning to our lives.

And continue to inspired us to do better as a person,

and as a couple.

Imitation :(

imitation

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” – Charles Caleb Colton

“It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.” –Herman Melville.

It’s always flattering if someone is trying to imitate you. Maybe they think you’re looking so good and they try to look the same way you are? Maybe they think you’re doing a good job and so successful so they will try to do the same? For whatever reason they may have, it gives a feeling of achievement for the person being imitated. You feel proud of yourself, because maybe they find you interesting and admirable. They admire you so much that they would like to be you. Be in your place, experience what you are experiencing. But imitation or copying is not always good 😦

I feel pity for the person who is trying to imitate someone. For she will never be happy of what she has and on whatever she will accomplish. Because in her, an envious heart lies. She will never be able to use her creativity. For she always copy whatever she finds amusing and would make her feel popular. She will never make use the talents she was given in the good of herself and of others.

Be your own self. Do what you are destined to do. Your life is yours and my life is mine. We can never have the same life. We can only undergo the same experiences but it is up to our own choices to make our mark in this world. Travel your own path and don’t ride on others’ journey. Remember, no one is alike. Though sometimes we may look the same, but we are created differently. Use your distinctness to shine. Make your own moment and seize your magic.

Just sayin’ 🙂
