UK Ambassador @AsifAAhmad‎ and Consul Speaks Filipino to Spread Word of #Love to PH

British Ambassador to the Philippines Asif Ahmad greeted guests in Filipino which came as a pleasant surprise in an intimate event with British diplomats and Cebu society.

He says, "as we had no military operational links with the Philippines, I had to ensure that our deployment of two navy ships, three [Royal Air Force] cargo planes and 1,200 military personnel were able to operate effectively." Overcoming a huge dilemma in transporting care to those who need it most, it has never been highly publicized that United Kingdom is the number one contributor in the wake of supertyphoon Haiyan/Yolanda’s wreckage in the Visayas, surpassing the US. He also shares his vision of attracting more stakeholders to come and invest in the country thus creating more jobs and opportunities and his track record would speak for itself. He now looks forward to a brighter future for Philippines as with the rest of us.

He has chosen a long time Cebu resident who served a key role in organizing British aid as UK new honorary consul in Cebu. Ms Tamsin Booth has been assigned to care for British citizens in the Visayas and she speaks our local vernacular (Bisaya) as beautifully as she looks.

To our British envois, we, the Filipino nation, will be forever grateful by your generosity, urgency and humility all these years.

Faith Above Everything Else #livefearlessly #selfie

Growing up, life gave me barely enough in everything. But I am thankful I was raised that way because it taught me to appreciate what I have, save and have financial discipline, concretize my big dreams and work hard all my life for the things that I want to happen. Those deprivation prepared me to face the harsh fact that real world plays no favorites.  

Something happens to you when you become the hero for a long time. When I had the opportunity to actually do nothing, I immediately jumped at the idea. It was hard to explain to anyone even to my self. But we all go through that stage in life where we have nothing to lose and we couldn't think of anything better but to follow our heart. I am not one to explain my actions for I am only accountable to my Creator alone. We are young, the stakes are high but we have the rest of our lives to do better if not our best.  

With everything that goes on in my personal life now, I could only sigh with exhaustion beyond repair. A wise girl once told me in these times that I just have to "rest but don't quit." I will forever bring those words into my heart for God only has nothing but great plans for me; and while I take a leap of faith, He has opened more doors than I could handle.

For the first time in a long while, I can breathe again.

#blessed

Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) will be remembered forever as a catalyst to global cooperation.

Winning Against Yourself: Chasing Happiness

I have this practice of setting my expectations so low so I won't be disappointed and setting standards high because I deserve the best. Applying them to everyday situations is a balancing act but my point is for you to be an extremist to get the most out of every experience. I eat risks for breakfast that's why. hehe And that is my key to happiness.



Chronic stress has affected most people around me to the point that their careers and health has suffered, relationships in the family disintegrated and everything else eventually tumbled down. I must confess, I am workaholic too, and I am proud admitting that because I am truly happy with everything I do. 

But I always make it to a point to respect my body and to place restrictions on what tasks I can commit, events I can attend, gatherings I can grace, and projects I can start. There are so many things we must and can do yet this world never stops to present opportunities that constantly keep us on edge, keep us awake. Explains much as to why I lack sleep all the time so please excuse me if I steal a snooze or two every once in a while. 

Never let anger get the best of you.



Reunite with nature when you are burned out and you’ll be surprised with how better you are able to cope up with life than you ever did.

Our psyche has bottomless wants but if you learn to appreciate what you have now and start rewriting dreams into goals, you'll do more than just fine. 

Live with no regrets. 

Practice gratitude because God has given you a thousand reasons to be happy. In fact, all you have to do is count them. 

Thank everyone around you and single out the beauty you see in them.



Savor good memories. Reminisce funny moments, capitalize on social interactions and tell yourself that this world has a big room to welcome everyone that dares live on it. It only takes a quick look on your photo albums to make you smirk and blush upon those embarrassing and outrageous moments. I'm loud and I like it that way.

Boost optimism and your confidence will follow. There are so many exciting things to do in life, embrace it. New things make moments worthwhile. So many stories to create. So many people to know.

Smile even when you don’t feel well at all. I’m boisterous to people who know me anyway and so should you. hehe

“You are your own worst enemy. If you can learn to stop expecting impossible perfection, in yourself and others, you may find the happiness that has always eluded you.”*

What are you happy for today?

P. S. Thanks to my DreamGirls for the recent extremely unruly trip to Siquijor and Dumaguete!
