Did you know what GEMBSO means?
G – GREAT
E – Exceptional
M – Memorable
B – Brilliant
S – Superb
O – Outstanding

We used adjectives not on the SUPERLATIVE degree. Because we at GEMBSO believe that if you make your wedding the greatest event of your life; the most exceptional occasion; the most memorable day; if you thought of all the super brilliant ideas for your big day; if you put the most superb effort in every detail; and if you give your most outstanding performance then any other momentous event that would happen after it like having a baby, a bigger family, celebrating silver and golden anniversaries and the list goes on will just be considered as a regular event in your life. Weddings must be special, unique, very you. It has to be fun, unforgettable and truly a wonderful one. But after your wedding you still have to continue to appreciate, create, celebrate and look forward to a better, happier, and more memorable milestones as a couple and as a family. GEMBSO can help you plan it and make your dream wedding comes true and enjoy any other occasion that comes after it.

An ALDUB Kind of LOVE! by Majella & GEMBSO

An Aldub Inspired Project that is meant to share LOVE and give HAPPINESS to soon-to-weds from ALDUB Nation.

ALDUBKIND OF LOVE6
AN ALDUB KIND OF LOVE PROJECT by MAJELLA & GEMBSO

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 in small packages, there are also some that seem to be so hard to perceive or usually left unnoticed. I believe that everyday we are given equal opportunities to be a blessing. We just have to choose to be a blessing to others in any way we can and we’ll be doubly blessed.

I have learned the importance of sharing and being a blessing to others.Here are the seven ways on how one 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.

As a Wedding Planner, I always enjoy listening to my GEMBSO couples’ love story. There is always something new; something unusual that makes their story unique in its own way. I am amazed on how God has written their story and believe that there is really forever. Whenever I plan and host for weddings, I get inspired with the ways on how they met, how he asked the question and how she said YES! Life is always full of surprises and LOVE usually takes us by surprise; it comes unexpectedly, no orientation needed. I have been so blessed to witness so many couples’ stories of love for almost 10 years now. In line with GEMBSO’s 10th year anniversary in the wedding industry and the celebration of my birthday I would be delighted to share the blessings that I have been receiving; and my way to give back is by doing one thing I love the most the best way I know how.

I have decided to let a couple from ALDUB NATION to have the chance to Experience #AlagangGEMBSO – Alagang May PagmaMAJal.

I am praying that this project will be a success and I am also hoping that this campaign would reach the right people who deserves to win. It may not be in monetary form but rest assured that in every wedding I plan together with one of the best team I know, my GEMBSO Angels, I know that every detail will be properly taken care of and we treat each wedding as special as the couple’s love story.

Let’s all celebrate the month of LOVE with so much gratefulness, appreciation and joy.

Please don’t forget to share, repost, quote tweet and re-tweet. God bless us all.

An Open Letter For The One That God Has Made For Me.

Someday, the right time will come when God would let our hands to hold each other and we would never ever let go.

Looking back on my notes on Facebook I came across this one that I have posted June 2011. I actually forgot who sent this to me or made me read this but I know it would be so worth it to share.  I found it very apt with regard to my status back then and upon reading it again I realized that it is still very much applicable to me right at this moment. I would like to share it with you all wonderful single people:) Have a great Monday!

Someday, the right time will come when God would let us hold each other’s hand and we would never ever let go

.hands

I am wondering at this very minute if you are thinking of me, if like me,  you are wondering what is taking us so long to find each other. Many times I thought I finally found you only to be disillusioned by the fact that my wait has not yet ended. I get up each morning hoping, dreaming, longing to meet you. I am thinking of how we will meet, would it be as romantic as the ones I have seen in movies? Or is it possible that I have known you all my life but we have yet to realize that we are meant for each other? Oh how I wish you were here right now because you are the only one who has the answers to all my questions.
Sometimes I ask myself if I have ever really known “love”. I do not have the answer to that question either but I believe that, more often than not, we will never really know what love is until we find that right person…. and since I have not found you yet, then maybe I do not really know what love is!
 You just don’t know how often I dream of finally knowing what it feels like to be in your arms. Even at this very moment I am imagining how you will simply sweep me off my feet! Perhaps I would be drawn to you by your smile, or your eyes, or maybe even how you manage to make me laugh by your silly little ways! 
I don’t really know for sure but I am praying that God will help me recognize you when the right time comes. I think of all the pain that I have gone through in the past and of how much I have cried since the day I began my search. I just wanted you to know that I find my strength in clinging onto my vision of the beautiful life ahead of  me — the life I shall spend with you. In my mind and in my heart I know that you are worth all that pain and sacrifice.
After all, the tears have become a part of my life and I believe that they are slowly washing away my flaws so that I would become perfect, not perfect in its truest sense, but perfect — for YOU!  I wonder if you’ve gone through so much pain as well. I wonder if you’ve been hurt so many times along the journey.
But my dearest one, please don’t ever give up because I am right here… patiently waiting for you! I assure you that when we finally find each other I would slowly heal those wounds by my love. At night, I would look out my window and stare at the beautiful sky, hoping that somehow you are also looking up and wondering about me. I utter a silent prayer and send all my cries to the heavens above thinking that in time they would reach you. And when I feel impatient, I just close my eyes and believe  that you are on your way and that you are longing to see me as well. It is funny but when I finally fall asleep, it is still you that I think of, for you are always in my dreams. It seems that, for now, that is the only place where I can hold on to you, long enough to tell you how much I love you. In my dreams you would kiss away my fears and wrap me with your arms of love.
 And this, all the more, makes me want to wake up and face the  new day ahead with the hope that soon enough,  you will no longer be a dream but a reality and once again I am assured that you are worth the wait. And when that time comes, everything will fall into its place, just as I had imagined, just as I had thought and dreamed, just as I had believed it would be!
By then, I would simply look back and smile at all that I have gone through, in spite of the pain and amidst the simple joys of life — and I would be very thankful  because they all led me to you!
In the meantime, take care of yourself for me. Hold on to our dream and don’t even think of letting go. Believe in your heart that we will find each other no matter what happens. God has planned the course and it is up to us to follow the directions. Don’t worry, don’t be afraid about getting lost, God saw to it that all the roads, no matter which one you choose to follow, lead to me .

Somewhere My Baby Waits For Me

couples-3

My life is lonely now but, I have no doubt
Someday I’ll meet that someone I’ve dreamed about
He may live around the globe go far across the sea
But somewhere my baby waits for me

The moment that I see him, my heart will know
Then I won’t wait to tell him I love him so
He’ll be mine to have and hold for whole eternity
Yeah, somewhere my baby waits for me
Oh, somewhere my baby waits for me

When I see lovers passing, I don’t feel blue
I know the things they’re feeling I’ll be feeling too
I don’t know where I’ll meet you, I don’t know when
I only know that someday my search will end
One fine day I’ll turn around and there he will be
Yeah, somewhere my baby waits for me

He may live around the globe go far across the sea
But somewhere my baby waits for me
Oh, somewhere my baby waits for me

Finding Love and Forever sa #TamangPanahon.

love1Do you believe in love and forever? Have you found it? Are you still hoping and praying that it will be a reality sa Tamang Panahon?

Everyone has his or her own version of how a love story begins. There are people who believe in love at first sight. Some say love begins with one hello, others with a simple smile.  For some, love starts with a cup of coffee or a pint of ice cream, while for others a shared appreciation of food, a bucket of popcorn while watching a movie or simply just enjoying each other’s smalltalk while eating isaw, kwek-kwek or fishball at the neighborhood’s ‘tindahan sa kanto’ could spark something special.

For AlDub,  it all started accidentally through a split screen ‘kalyeserye’ that instantly had a worldwide following,  giving people an unexplainable feeling of ‘kilig’ and happiness.  Some really believe that it was “MaiDen Heaven” because it seems to have an “AlDub-vine” intervention and everything just fell into place at the right time.

aldubCollageLove is everywhere. It can be found in the office, in school, in theaters, hallways, malls, even in a busy two-way street. It can also be found in castles like the ones in fairytales where prince and princess meet. You can find love in the most unexpected places. People confess finding love in shallow waters, on mountaintops, in an island, in a desert, or even in cold snowy places. A simple plywood, locket, alarm clock, hanky, flagpole, basement, straw, gym, tree, long table, theme park, mansion, rally, parking lot, garden, library, or a noisy canteen are all witnesses to love’s grandeur.

You can fall in love on a cruise, aboard a plane, a train, bus, jeepney, motorbike or any type of vehicle. Name it. Love makes travelling worthwhile no matter how bumpy the ride is. For AlDub, the various Barangay’s “Kalye“ or the different streets in the Philippines and the whole ALDUB Nation watching on television everyday are the witnesses on how AlDub’s blossoming on cam love story unfolded. People even get confused whether it is just on reel or for real, this is quite obvious when Alden and Maine unconsciously go out of character and often teased by the hosts, “Acting-an lang ‘to uy!”

Love has grown with time and the evolution of technology. Some found love through having Phone pals and pen pals, others through radio signal communication. But now Love transcends through the development of other social media platforms. A wrongly sent text message can lead to love. Some took the effort to find love by just swiping to the right.  A simple status update in Facebook,  Twitter and Instagram  can also mean a profession of love. Other apps also became instruments to bring lovers together even those who are million miles apart.  From snail mails, fan signs, fax, cards, emails or mails of whatever kind, one thing’s for sure – love is always found.

This may sound a cliché but most people say that one way to get to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Some meet love in the kitchen. One cooks, the other lovingly savours the food. Love is also in music. One writes the song, the other sings. Love can be found on the dance floor, like two individuals swaying to love’s fantastic tempo. Love can be in the hospital; one is the patient, the other one is the caregiver breathing life to the other. Love can be on the radio, a DJ and an avid listener just might end up falling in love. Love can be in the courtroom. The defendant and the accused may just patch things up.

In all honesty, love can be found in the most unexpected place and time, not knowing that the love of your life is already there usually unnoticed because you could have been to busy finding love. Can you imagine how magical it is for love to get into someone’s system freely?  Only the heart knows how and it would be so hard to explain.

Love nowadays is expressed differently; it can be done through the help of Internet, social media apps, or can even be broadcasted live Via Satellite. Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye that features AlDub showed us that chivalry is not yet dead. They exemplified to us the importance of Filipinos’ traditional values on “panliligaw, paninilbihan and panunuyo”. It teaches us to be patient, to wait, to be hopeful and prayerful. It inspires everyone to believe in the real power of love. Though lovers have to go through different trials and sacrifices they are still eager to deal with it   just to profess unconditional love with their purest intention.

There are so many instances where you can find love. You can wait or search for love but in the end, there’s only one thing that’s true. I believe that whatever your story is, there is one God behind it. He is the one who writes your very own love story. He is the one who creates the main characters, who happens to be you and the one whom He made just for you. He writes the plot, chooses the setting, and makes sure that love finds its way to you.  Just believe in #tamangpanahon when God is ready to give you your forever.  

For those like me who have not yet found the love of their life, just live each day with the will to follow your heart’s desires and just be happy. I know that God only makes sure that in His perfect time your paths will cross whichever road you’ll take.
