What to do?

 

It’s been so unusual for me lately not to do anything on weekends. I usually have scheduled meet-ups or events. But this year, I somehow made a commitment to myself to have some weekends just to rest, really rest.

Well, today, I’m just at home, wondering what to do. I want to clean my room but I just don’t have the energy for it. I want to do some grocery but I just don’t know what to buy. I want to go to the mall and catch a movie, I’m not just into the movies showing right now. I’m trying to think of what to do just to make my weekend productive but my body is saying I should just rest.

Maybe, this is what I really get for having a very busy, tiring work week. As much as I want to do the things that I really enjoy doing, my physical body just wants to rest. Oh well, rest is a luxury these days. Better grab this when I can have it.

Thanks to online delivery and online Christian movies I can enjoy. 🙂 

Just watched the movie New Hope and it was a reminder for me to be sensitive to those people who are in great pain. We really don’t understand the depth of their pain, what we could really do is to show them more love and care.

My favorite line in the movie: “Christianity isn’t flawed, only Christians.” 

Happy Restful Weekend to me…nyaha! 🙂

Life

Today, I became a ninang again. I lost track to how many godchildren I have already. 🙂 It is a privilege for me to be asked as a ninang because it means the parents want me to take part in their journey in bringing up their child. Since I became a Christian, it was my first time to really witness a dedication and be a part of it. And I was really blessed!

This is me and my kumare, Rhodes with Baby Rikhaela

After the dedication, my brother, Christian and I watched the movie, “Life of Pi”. It was interesting because I remembered when I was in highschool and college, some of my very close friends, well even until now calls me “Pay”, “Pi” and the Pi sign. So I felt like it is my movie. Hehehe… Just a little bit 😉 But anyway, I was totally clueless what the movie was all about. And I was amazed that the gospel was even shared in the movie. Really cool. I have many favorite parts in the film but I was struck by the last few conversations of Pi and the writer. The goal of Pi was not just to tell the story but to help the writer believe in God. At the last part, Pi asked the writer which version of the two stories did he believe. Then, the writer responded, it was the first one. Then Pi told him, it is the same with God. How I interpret it is that the writer wasn’t able to see what really happened in Pi’s journey. He wasn’t there. And he can’t really be sure that the first version was the real one. But he believed in Pi. Just like believing in God. 🙂

Lastly, God indeed speaks through others… I have received wisdom today from someone which I didn’t expect but was praying for it. Isn’t God amazing? He hears our prayers. He answers.

Good night. 🙂

Sunday

 

After the worship service at CCF, Nong Iman, Kim and I directly went to Podium Mall. Our schedule was to watch Step Up Revolution then dinner at Yakimix Eat All You Can Restaurant.

I’m a frustrated dancer (I must say). I love watching movies about dancing but I’ve never really danced. I’m not really sure I know how. But anyway, I’m a fan of Step Up movies and so I wouldn’t want to miss the new one. I must say, this is my so far favorite Step Up movie. The Mob themed movie really leveled up. My favorite mob dances were the ones at the art gallery and at the office building. Really cool! 😀

After the movie, we went to Yakimix for our dinner. I’ve been craving for Japanese rolls and Korean bbq. Yakimix was just the right place to satisfy those cravings. Jaja and Ebur joined us. We started at 5:30pm and went out from the place around 9pm. Haha!

 

 

I can’t wait to try another eat all you can place which they said is also good. Next time when my cravings will go back. For now, I need to finish my tea! 🙂

Full and happy Sunday. 🙂

Saturday

I had a great time today! I watched the movie “Every Breath You Take” with friends today. A feel-good, romantic comedy movie that will just make you burst with laughter.

After which, my friend, Rhodes and I had a blog making tutorial session. I helped her in finalizing her blog sites so that she can really start writing.

And to end the day, we had bubble tea at Tea 101 which just opened recently here in California Garden Square. Not bad actually. 🙂

Happy Saturday!

 

Yemen

I watched the movie Salmon Fishing in Yemen tonight with Pang, Esther and Chris. The storyline is very interesting and a lot of insight in the movie.

What reminded me in the movie is the importance of having a vision. And to accomplish that vision, it has to be partnered with faith.

Great movie!
