Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016!

thankful

How can you say that you are thankful and blessed? In life we all look at things differently. We see things, events and people depending on how we want it. But blessings come to us each and everyday, it can be in big or small packages, there are also some that seem to be so hard to perceive or usually left unnoticed.

My parents taught me and my siblings the importance of sharing and being a blessing to others. Seven ways on how you can become a blessing?

1.Learn to share what you have                                                                                                    2. Give but don’t expect anything in return.
                                                                                  3. Think of other’s feelings, welfare and being.
                                                                        4. Put others happiness first before your own.
                                                                           5. Inspire others to be a blessing too.                                                                                        6. Always spread good vibes, love and happiness.                                                                       7. Pray for others and wish them well.

I believe that everyday we are given equal opportunities to be a blessing. We just have to choose to be one. We should not expect a favour to be returned. Just choose to be a blessing to others in any way and you’ll be doubly blessed. Let God give you what you truly deserve.

2015 has been quite a challenging year for me and GEMBSO. But just like the old times I have so many things to be grateful for, so much to be happy about and a lot of great memories to remember. To all the people I met, those who have been part of my life and my 2015 thank you for all the wonderful experiences.

1st Christmas with ALDUB 2015 – One For Keeps! #KiligPaMore

This Christmas is so different from the past Christmases that I had for the past 12 years. Ever since I graduated from College, I have been so busy and as a Wedding Planner I usually don’t have much time during December because of weddings or events. It’s my first time to do something unusual. But it made me happy. Yes I am happy and I am proud! Do you still remember the last time you actually did something for the first time? Was it worth it? My answer, YES it’s really really really worth it.

It’s actually my first time to watch an MMFF movie on Christmas Day, where there are a lot of people from all ages who go to the mall to watch as well. Going to SM Batangas at 8:30 in the morning to catch the first screening of MyBebeLOVE #KILIGPAMORE in SM CINEMA 3 that was shown at 9:30 am was quite a challenge. But since I am a self-confessed proud ALDUB Fan together with my sister and friends, we were ready for whatever challenge that may come our way. We are like any other members of the ALDUB Nation “WALANG MAKAPIPIGIL SA AMIN!” Caps lock para intense! We got the tickets, chose a good seat, lucky us we have E-PLUS cards for express lane and we were spared from the long queue of moviegoers for MBL. Fantastic si Bibi! The odds are ever in our favor.

Seeing some familiar faces of neighbors, relatives,  friends, and even those I did not know gave me so much positivity. Some moviegoers went there with their families, with their children, with their grandparents, with their friends, with their partners, with their AlDubarkads and some came in solo but one thing I am sure of nobody ever felt alone inside. It feels like we all knew each other. When someone said “Grabe Sya, or Grabe Sila!” everyone reacted too. And when someone shouted Regine! the rest said…. Whooooooooh! Ala Lola Tidora! We may not know each other but we, the ALDUB Nation has our own language to communicate. The atmosphere inside the cinema was so high, it feels like TP days, everyone was excited, giddy and super kinikilig! Can you just imagine a room filled with hundreds of people that only radiate good vibes and happiness. While we are waiting for the movie to be shown I heard a lot of people said “Di pa man nagsisimula gusto ko na agad ulitin!, Iba talaga ang ALDUB, ang #MyBebeLove pinapasaya tayo.

Then I realized, as human we don’t really need much in order to be grateful and happy. We just need a few to satisfy our simple wants and enjoy life’s simple joys. In times of hardships, problems and challenges we just need something that can make us smile or give us a good laugh even just for a while. For the past 23 weeks ALDUB has always been there for us and through their movie we got a bonus from AISING. We are so lucky, we are spoiled nation anyway!

Congratulations Direk Joey, Bossing, Aiai, to ALDUB Alden and Maine and all to the hardworking and dedicated members of the production team of #MyBebeLOVE everything that you have done, all your efforts, time, and creativity that you put in this movie was well-appreciated. You have come up with a really good piece that the whole ALDUB Nation will thank you for. You have made our Christmas 2015 extra special by giving us an extraordinary gift to enjoy. Your success is also ALDUB Nation’s success, and together we will continue to work hand in hand to make this world a better and happier place to live in.  We are committed to support you in every endeavor.

Dondi&Anna

For me, now is the only Christmas that I never felt lonely that I still don’t have a love life. I have been fervently praying to God for Him to give me the right man for about a decade or so. But when ALDUB came into the picture they made me believe in tamang panahon, destiny, forever and true love. I personally believe that LOVE will come unexpectedly, it may not be this year but I must say, I will always have a great memory of Christmas 2015. Thanks to ALDUB this year is really one for keeps!

Again, MERRY CHRISTMAS to EAT BULAGA DABARKADS, AISING, ALDUB NATION and to ALDUB (Alden & Maine) Wishing that you also to have a great CHRISTMAS to remember! Let us continue to spread LOVE, radiate GOOD VIBES and share HAPPINESS! Let us not forget that the real reason for this season is our Lord Jesus Christ. Let’s us thank God for He has been so good to us and we have so many blessings to be thankful for.

My Version of #DearYayaDub

I know this will be a long shot but I would still try. I just want to let you know my thoughts of having Maine in our lives. She truly deserves all the kind words, the appreciation, the love and all the blessings she has been receiving right now. Kudos to her humble heart. Hoping that she get the chance to read this. That would really make me happy.

Let God Write Your Own Fairytale

Slide1

In Every little girls life there is this dream she keeps in her heart. Like her favourite fairytale, where she imagines herself as the princess anticipating to meet her knight in shinning armour in the most special way.  She has imagined the man she wants.  A man who is fit for the love that she can give.  A man of honour who is true to his vows.  A man of faith who fears the Lord.  A responsible man who will work hard for their future.  A man strong enough to protect and fight for her. A kind-hearted man who is willing to understand and accepts her flaws and most of all she wants a man who will love her unconditionally.

She fervently prays for a him everyday.  She hopes and looks forward to meet him someday. As to how, when or where, she just leaves it up to God.  Though sometimes it feels like searching and waiting will never end, she does not lose hope.  She keeps on believing in the power of love.  She understands the God is still busy writing their love story.

 Time will quickly pass by. Chances are she can’t have  everything she wished for in a man.  She knows God has a better plan for her.  She holds on to her secret dream that In God’s perfect time their paths will cross in the most unexpected moment.

With God nothing is impossible.  Just keep the faith and believe in the power of love.  Great things come to those who wait and everything becomes more meaningful when it happens ‘sa tamang panahon’. Who knows, in the middle of an ordinary life LOVE could make extraordinary things happen and her favourite love story, the best among all the fairytales she has dreamt of, will be written.
