the vineyard

Never thought that the grapevine in our front yard will actually grow in this very dry area without even much tending or putting some fertilizer on it. Its vine just bear fruit naturally.Can't wait for its season to ripe and have it tasted. ;)

"Let us go out early to the vineyards and see whether the vines
have budded, whether the grape blossoms have opened, and whether
pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love."
(Song of Solomon)


the sorrow of my nation...

While we have not yet overcome from the struggle we have to face over the high prices of the basic commodities and the problem on rice shortage, typhoon "Frank" relentlessly hit our country leaving so many lives go wasted. Though its saddening to recount the crisis that we are now going through, I hope and pray that we remain strong still.

Watching over national television the damages that the typhoon left to us, while the capsized ship of the Sulpicio lines brought too much anguish and sorrow to the affected families...I wish we could do more than protesting and grumbling against who's to blame. I just want to reiterate that Sulpicio lines' money can never repay the lives that were risked and lost due to their selfish aim to profit. We're not talking in this case of mere mammals drowning in the flood but we're talking here of human lives! We mourn with the rest of our countrymen.

May we continue to pray for all the victims and for their loved ones that they'd left behind.
