A Relaxing Dinner Cruise along Manila Bay

December 30, 2011 Pearl 6

Last July, I bought 5 of the 23,000 vouchers sold at Metrodeal for a dinner buffet cruise through Prestige Cruises.   As expected, since they sold thousands of vouchers, trying to schedule a slot was not easy.  I initially tried to schedule it last August but I was told that the nearest date would be in December, so I got the December 11 slot as a birthday treat for my daughter, but when we confirmed our Davao trip, I had to reserve another date and I decided a post-Christmas dinner would be the best as it would be an opportunity Read More

It’s Been A While

December 20, 2011 Pearl 6

I’ve been neglecting this blog for the past 2 (3?) weeks.  It’s been a very hectic month for me because of my online business.  Hopefully this week when the rush orders have been delivered, I’ll be able to focus again on posting in this blog. Sorry, guys!

A Feast at Giligan’s Restaurant

November 25, 2011 Pearl 18

As I have said in my previous posts, our family Sunday lunches are spent in restaurants “just around the corner”, not expensive and not fancy.  But two Sundays ago, my brother-in-law treated us for lunch at Gilligan’s Restaurant for his belated birthday celebration.   We welcomed the change, a sumptuous and delicious change, in fact, LOL.  The kids, as usual, were so happy, although they all seem happy every time they were together, so I wasn’t surprised at all. We had one of Giligan’s group meals which was really A LOT, we didn’t even get to finish some of it, Read More

Sunday Reflections: How Should We Now Live?

November 24, 2011 Pearl 0

Anyone who said he is a Christian should live as Christ lived. (1)   Live a life of Integrity. Integrity means wholeness. We should be the same all throughout — we shouldn’t wear a mask. We cannot be this kind of person at home, and that kind of person at work. (2)  Live in Humility.  Humility is dependence. Sometimes we venture into the opposite by becoming proud. When one is a humble person, he accepts the yoke of God. (3)  Live with Simplicity. Living simply gives you less stress.  Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life Read More

Looking for a Dormitory House

November 22, 2011 Pearl 1

I am  currently scouting for a dormitory for my son.  He’s now in third year college and his schedule is making it impossible for him to commute everyday.  His travel time, especially when he is not able to ride with me, is two hours, at the most three hours, due to traffic and waiting time for the bus or jeepney.  Unlike before when he didn’t want to stay in a dormitory, now, he was the one who initiated looking for a place near his school, so I knew that he’s really having a hard time with his schedule.  We should Read More
