Life is about giving...

Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence
-Aristotle 



I grew up in a not-so well neighbourhood.
Houses are typically two floors.
Children walking in streets naked.
Mothers are usually playing bingo or cards.
Most fathers are working as pedicab drivers, jeepney drivers or construction workers.

You would think that our place has really nothing good to offer.
But you are wrong.

People here are nice and help each other in any way they can.

Though, our family is not living the same life they are living right now, never in my entire life they did something that harm us
..I actually feel safe with a neighbourhood like this..

They are generous too.
They will even insist in giving us free rides, knowing that they need money more than we do.

It makes me happy to see people here being generous with the most humble things they can offer

God showered us with so many blessings this year,

Sister being top 2 in Architectural Board Exam
My twin graduated in Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Manila as Dean’s Lister and now taking Medicine
My oldest sister for the success of her operation (thyroid)

That is why, we would like to share the happiness by giving back the blessings that we have received.

True! Yesterday was very tiring and yet fulfilling day!



FYI, the banner was from our Baranggay, we did not pay for printing ^_^
Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity and responsibility to give something back by becoming more

  4. Thank you everyone.
    yes, this year was full of blessings and also challenges (to name one, the closing of banco Filipino). But we’re still happy that we are all together as a family and that alone is already a big blessing for me. No money could replace the happiness of being with the people you love. ^_^

  5. Congratulations to your siblings!

    I'm just wondering where you're studying? Your sis is a Mapuan, so I assume you are one too?

    I am a Mapuan and I visit your blog a lot, so it'd be cool if you were one. :P
