Thank You Steve Jobs!

October 6, 2011 No comments »

Whoa! I’m back and blogging again… I think because I’m sad yet inspires me to write after reflecting of the news that I read this morning. The great mind of Apple Inc., Mr. Steve Jobs is dead. :(

Steve Jobs, the great innovator of the new centuryI’m saddened about the news of his death. And I can’t help myself from writing my personal reaction of his death… this is my way to extend condolences to the man that changed the world through his many hi-tech innovations and to whom my hubby look up and serve as inspiration in his job as an IT Specialist. The computing industry truly lost a great, unique, and brilliant mind, a one of a kind innovator of the new century!

I started to appreciate the brilliance of this man when I got my new iPhone 2 years ago that made me decide not to get any other new phone even branded one as replacement… because I simply got the best phone in my pocket already! Well, I would definitely get a new one but it should be the upgrade of what I have now… must be iPhone 5 😉

Steve’s innovation of iPod, iPhone, IPAD… are very human that even a 2 year old can already navigate on it… and I love to see my 3 year old able to download a new free game when my iPhone is with her… she loves playing on it and navigating every icons. Oh, it makes me a proud mom, because I didn’t teach her how to use it but she handles and learned it by her own… I owe it to Steve Jobs for bringing an extraordinary UI that is so human and easy to understand.

I think I just don’t admire him now… I love him… :) My prayer is for his beloved family in this time of grief.

Rest in peace Mr. Job! You will always be remembered! You definitely touched everybody’s lives including little kids.

I admire Kristine Hermosa’s beauty from the first time I saw her on TV… and on her wedding day… she looks more beautiful and so happy, she is like a princess finally getting the wedding of her dreams! I didn’t miss to grab copies of “Star Studio” magazine where the couple are in the cover for me to get posted of this occasion, well… i’m just a silent fan. :) And Oyo seems a nice guy who truly love Kristine and acknowledging God to be at the center of their relationship makes the couple more lovable..

Now, I can’t help but to embed this beautiful video of Kristine’s perfect wedding to Oyo (courtesy from Bong Sare on Vimeo).

To the couple, best wishes!

Preparations for Christmas

December 24, 2010 No comments »

It’s one day before Christmas and I think I had everything in my checklist accomplished so I’m ready to celebrate it! Now, I’m done wrapping all the gifts that I want to share to family and friends this Christmas season. It makes me happy to spend time shopping for gifts and wrapping them with beautiful christmas wrappers and finally send them to kids and special members of the family… it brings joy to my heart and makes my christmas complete.

Aside from gifts which some of them I acquire a month before Christmas, I also make it a point to prepare and complete all the stuffs, ingredients, etc… for “noche buena” a week before Christmas. I wanted to avail of the “Mall Sales Promo” which it usually runs 2 days before Christmas but I just can’t take too much of the holiday rush that sometimes will spend almost the whole day in the malls.

Home Christmas decors are also part of my preparations… the house needs to be in a Christmas atmosphere so family members and friends who come to visit for Christmas feels the spirit of the occasion. But most of all the big preparation that is found at the last of my checklist is “myself”, did I prepare myself to be worthy of celebrating the commemoration of Christ’s birthday? How did I prepare myself?

Well, I know I’m not doing a great job in preparing myself yet… but at least I believe that this is the best I can give as my presents to the celebrant… and that is to create a ripple of generosity this Christmas.

A Happy Christmas to all!
