People around us

People come into our life for a REASON, a SEASON or a LIFETIME. When we figure out which it is we know exactly what to do.

When Someone is in our life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need we have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist us through difficulty, to provide us with guidance and support, to aid us physically , emotionally , or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason we need them to be.
Then without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away, Sometimes they act up or out and force us to take a stand.What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.

When people come into our life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. Theay may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.

Believe it..Its real ..But , only for a season, LIFETIME relationship teach you lifetime.

our job as a person is to accept the lesson.
love the person
and put what you have learned in all areas of life
love is blind but frienship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being part of my life....

Today is our lastday for sprachkurs im so happy because i finished again another kurs. I pretty much sure that i miss my daily rounds for almost three months whether the weather is good or bad i need to attend the school. Secondly i really miss my Bus riding everyday through this bus riding i met constant passenger we are both familiar to each other so they talk to me in German, which bring me proud to myself because i understand them. I met also some Filipina and Thailander inside the bus we exchanged telephone number and addresses i think these was a good way to become more friends outside. And the Bus driver was nice to me everytime i shown my ticket to them, he / she smiled at me and asking Wie geht's?...
But now i feel upset because the school sent my bills and recieved it only today they dont send it monthly like what they do before. Something difficult from our side specially now we need money for our vacation. That's life folks....

As i mentioned to my last blog, i love roses , tulips and i love all the flower (kahit bulaklak ng kamote). I learned also to love orchids, though its quite expensive. And my husband first love flowers is Orchids so what can i do?!! but to take care about his princess in the POT.( orchids is one of my hubby collections)... hehe I remember my lola when i stay with her, she has much flower and plants around from wild plants , medicinal, vegetables, etc. Name it she have it. That's why her house is look like a secret garden or we can say a secret kubo inside the garden because her house is smaller than the garden she had.
At that time i was never pay attention what the beauty of nature is. And how my lola took good care the plants to brings flowers, and for us to pick them and play them all.
What we did was cutted all the flowers and plants and play with it as "tinda- tindahan". Which bring my lola to get mad to the max..hehe how i missed my younger years.....

my past bestfriend................

Just to reminished the past when i was in Grade school, being a silent in the class I have my own friend. I’m so shy and favorite by my teacher to do something inside the classroom like cleaning the rooms even if its not my duty day. “ Sweeper”.

And during break-time selling her ice candies and sometimes removing her white hair.
Everyday is my unlucky day because our teacher give me more task to do. As a little one I need to follow what the teachers say. Even if I wanted to join my classmates for playing , running , making Sipa and Chinese Garter.

By these time I have my angel she is always there to help me. I have a friend her name is Mavic , during our recess we exchange our baon, (my baon is camote and pandesal for mavic) and after the class we walk together home.

Exchanging bag sad to say my bag is not so heavy compare to her bag.
Okey is not a big deal……. While walking in the street we sing our favourite song titled “WHO’S HOLDING DONNA NOW”. We always wanted to go inside the building of Albay capitol asking for some bondpaper. And pass through the building of Patio Napal because of its fresh and cool surroundings. Holding hands passing the pedestrian lanes and watchful for the vehicles around.
We do together our project, but she is only the one watching and making merienda for us , I do the project alone. Her reason is she don’t know what to do. So I did what is the best for our project “RUG” just to pass it the next day. We also enjoyed watching T.V. in mavics house , because papa can’t afford to buy one for us.
We also shared our crushes, dreams, and favourites, Mavic had a crush before name MIKE. He have a blond hair and white skin which my bestfriend turn on to him. Woow….
When Mavic saw Mike she feel like in heaven. She don’t want to carry my bag anymore to show that she be sexy lol. Time goes on our ways separated I need to go to
Manila to continue my Schooling there with the help of my mama’s brother, because we are 9 siblings in the family. But I did not inform my bestfriend we lost our communications until I go back to Legazpi after 11 yrs. I saw the name of my friend in CMO in divine word college. She is so active working there as a student leader. And she tried to sent me notes through my classmate and we met once and never repeated again because of our class schedule. Mavic that time is graduating student and me?! , im just starting my college life. What a big difference…..
Time passingby we lost again our communication after these big break of reunited. No news , no idea wherever we be. Until I visited her old house in Albay but sad to say mavic is not there she be in
Manila learning her Masters degree.
And until I came here in
Germany I searched her name under Friendster. Hoping to find my bestfriend. Luckily I found her she is now a teacher in La Consolacion College Manila. We continue our dreams through chatting and share our own experiences in Life. Wish i could met HER in person again, Soon…

we understand that friends change.

I Believe...

you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry,
but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe...
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had
and what you've learned from them and less to do
with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe...

sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

but, we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager to find
out a secret. It could change your life Forever.

I Believe...
Two people can look at the exact same
thing and see something totally different.

I Believe...
That your life can be changed in a matter of
hours by people who don't even know you.

I Believe...
That even when you think you have no more to give, when
a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.

I Believe...
That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

they just make the most of everything."

JOy Ride with the purpose

My upcoming examination is next week, Zertifikat Deutsch (B1). Im quite nervous our two teacher always remind us "Bitte Bitte Leute, lernt zu Hause Unsere Prüfung ist ganz schwer".
Even i go sleeping i heared the voice of my teacher for reminding. Can i say that i am paranoid?! lol.
By these i got tense and lost my interest to study, because i dont know where to start to. So i promised myself not to be tense and not to panic all things well done in Gods time.

First, my plan for these course was just only continues learning from my first Language which i did when i was new here. And second i wanted to learn how to ride in the Bus alone, without my husband at my back to teach me what to do. I took two buses just to reached my destination. My husband bought my monthly ticket. Now i learned how to trust myself again, and i can going around alone. I am not hesitant anymore not like before, coz am doubted and affraid, im thinking that maybe i dont understand the people around me if they asking me, or i might be lost and what can i say to the Bus driver.!?... lol..
But still i continue and strive learning, its not a magic to learn the language in very short period of time.
It took time for us to learn and adopt the sorrounding, culture and peoples, that brings us in our destination wherever we wanted to go in the Future.

Alternative Hair Conditioner

Just for sharing the idea. I tried to used mayonaise as alternative to conditioner. Mayonnaise is made of egg white and vinegar and others. My friend offer these idea to me. If you have dry hair, try mayonnaise as it's a great conditioner. Depending on the length of your locks, apply approximately half a cup of mayonnaise to your hair. Leave it on for at least 15 minutes to let it work, it's magic. Rinse well and then shampoo as usual. The hair conditioning treatment also helps to counteract dryness. Dry hair and spilt ends can benefit by regular conditioning. You may also find that the hair becomes charged with static electricity, just after the shampoo and after we used the hair drier. This gives the hair a 'fly away' look and is also difficult to manage. Not only mayonaise as alternative as conditioner. Another tip, ( seen on tv and already tried it) you can used also the egg yolk as a massage cream into your hair. Massage the 2 egg yolks ,( depends on the length of your hair ) to your scalp and leave it 5 minutes then rinse well and shampoo. Egg yolk is rich in protien it brings the hair stronger and softer.
Remember that our hair is our crowning glory.
(use your resources be creative)

Eggs Shells

After i baked my husband favorites Leche Flan. I keep the eggs shells whole, they say that eggs shells has more beneficiaries for plants and soil. Specially for Orchids, i saw these idea from the TV show . Their topic is bio-fertilizer, one of these is the eggs shell. Instead of throwing eggs shells away, put them in the bottom of plant pots instead of stones. Eggs shells are much lighter than stones and they are a great source of nutrition( Calcium). Crushed eggs shells can be added to a compost pile, if washed. Shells are a high source of calcium and beneficial to the soil. Which I did in my orchids. I mixed it in the orchids soil. And I put the eggs shells in the circle on top of the ground surface around tender orchid stems. I found it great and has two function Fertilizer and Deco for the plants.

I love Roses and Tulips

Every Spring and Summer my eyes feel good, but my nose dont. I had an allergy to the flowers during spring which lasted until Winter comes. My nose is always clogged , difficult for me to inhale. I asked some of the Filipina here if they encounter the same problem. Some of them experienced the same problem i had. In school most of us are "Auslander" foreigner so they understand me if my allergy attack me in the middle of the lesson.( make sneeze)But still i love flowers and warm weather.

Something happen

This afternoon when we had a partner activity in our language course. I did'nt like what my sit-mate did. Suppose to be she my partner for the activity (german dialog), but she selected her own partner. She had a silly reason. She said that i dont like to work with her and i always work to another group.
Which bring me mad and irritates me more.
But it is okey, because i dont like to be her partner in activity in reality.
Because when she recited she dont know what she's talking about (not in the topic anymore) and all the people laughing over her.
And when these happen she easily get mad and speak with her own dialect. Which i dont want to happen to me that the listener laughing over me. Laughing for that dumbness ( sorry for that).
I can say that laughing for somethings funny was good, but for another meaning of laughing is also different story!

Netherland escapade

It is our habit to go out every weekend either we go around or we go eating outside.
Summer last year we visited Burger Zoo in Netherland. I found it good and great.
This Zoo has different settings, from desert to winter and tropical setting. I feel amazed to the tropical sittings. I really miss the plants that i ignore when i was in the Philippines, i feel that im be home when i see them living in artificial settings which composed of heater and huge Glass House.

It was so funny too because i saw there the tree name "langatong", these three had itchy and burning leaves when you scratch into your skin.
After going around we feel tired and hungry we sitted there inside the tropical house while waiting for our orders i smelled the sweet scent of Sampaguita. Which i recalled my days, my highschool graduation.
-------We never return such wonderful moment we had together since my father in-law passed away last month.......
