Love so Divine

I came across this movie but I won’t give any synopsis.  I just remembered an incident that happened when I was doing my 8-day silent retreat.  Seminarians, even if they are already theologians, are just kids.  Many of them still don’t know the sense of responsibility.  One theologian forgot that he was supposed to be one of the acolytes/server.  I was at my usual seat at the back of the main chapel.  I overheard one theologian told another, “Ikaw ang server 2 ngayon.”  I didn’t see who was he talking to but I already had a hint who that was.  I had 2 persons in mind but the one that I thought of first was correct.  Hahaha!!! I observe people, how they leave their prayer books and Bibles inside the chapel, etc…  😀  Bukod sa pag-dadasal, hindi maiwasan mag-judge.  Nasa retreat, nagkakasala pa rin.

You seem to be an angel…


It happens like this. One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else – closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps because this person carries an angel within them – one sent to you for some higher purpose, to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during perilous time. What you must do is to trust in them – even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering – the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.

Though here is a word of warning – you may grow to love this person  but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled, the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.

– Love and Misadventure by Lang Leav –


I think you are an angel.  I met you.  You met me.  No small talk happened between us.  Yet you taught me something.  You taught me to keep moving forward even little by little until I get there.  The path would not be very easy and at times I will be scared.  Although I cannot totally remove my fear, I still have my faith in God that keeps me going.


How were you able to touch my life?  Maybe that simple exchanges of “Peace be with you” did that job.  I will tell you more about that journey when we meet again.

First ever lumpia

I don’t really cooked but I am really stressed.  Since that is the case, I bought (which my Mom paid :D) 2 packs of Mexican chili, lots of cheese and lumpia wrapper.  I was lazy capture all the necessary steps but what I did was as follows:

1.  Washed the chili.  Cut the mid part to remove the seeds.  I suggest that you wear gloves while doing this.  I was bare handed and my hands were minty for 3 days.  It was a soothing feeling though.

2.  Wash the chili with boiling water.  I read something that it will lessen the spiciness.

3.  Cut the cheese into strips.  Insert 1 strip in every chili.

4.  Wrap each chili with lumpia wrapper.  There was also information from the internet that it is better to use molo wrapper.  I haven’t tried though.

5.  Deep fry the lumpia until light golden brown.

Aside from cheese, you can add beef, tuna or whatever fillings you like.  I am just a cheesy person that’s why I like cheese.  Also, I am lazy to add meat.

This is my first ever lumpia.  I don’t know when will be the next.  I am not a kitchen person but I love to eat.

That is for my cheesy dynamite. 😀
