It's All About Time

When I was younger and looked ahead , time seemed to move so slowly….
I could hardly imagine what other folks often said.

“Ang bilis ng oras.”
“Lunes na naman, trabaho na naman.”
“Tapos na ang day-off…”

But, as I aged older, the years seem short now. I even sometimes hear myself say…

“Pasukan na naman?”
“Di ko man lang na-enjoy ang sembreak.”

And now, I can SOMETIMES realize the brevity of life.
Sometimes… ?

Yes! Kasi may mga araw sa buhay ko bilang estudyante na nasasabi ko…

“Ang tagal naman magbakasyon. Tagal ng sembreak!”
“Hay! Ang tagal naman ng class. Tinatamad na ko!!!”
“Di pa ba uwian? Bato na ko!”

I know! Nagdaan ka rin sa ganyan. Nasabi mo rin yan!
But still, I can realize how short life is. “Life is fleeting as vapor”, the Bible says. Para lang tayong mga bula. We appear for a little time and then vanish away. QUESTIONS,
Paano mo ba nagamit ang TIME mo?

Paano mo nagamit ang kung ide-describe ko, the most precious commodity on earth….
Yung the most precious gift one can give to someone…

…one of the scarce resources kung gagamitan natin ng economy

Looking back to our lives, nasan na nga ba tayo?

Have we been achieving our goals?

Maybe you are wondering.. ang bata ko pa para isipin yan ah! Pero

It’s not bad to review our lives once in a while. It’s not bad to do it while we are young.
Have we made the most out of our limited days?

Kung medyo alanganin ang mga sagot mo, well…
We cannot change it. We cannot do something to how we spent our time in the past.
Wala naman tayo noong “dagger and sand of time” na tulad nung sa Prince of Persia to turn back time and…

Wala rin tayong magic takure na sumisigaw lang ng

“lilipad lilipad takure”

then kung saang time
zone na tayo napunta.

We cannot prolong our time. Our problem is not to increase what is remaining but how wisely to use on daily allotment of those 1440 minutes or 86400 seconds.

Let’s try not to waste time.
Be productive!
Spend it with our loved ones and friends!

Baguio Forest House : Bed and Breakfast

One of the best places to visit and stay while you are in Baguio is this cozy place where you will always feel like it’s Christmas – Baguio Forest House. Fortunately, I was able to experience staying here even for just a night for business matters. Literally, I felt like I’m inside Santa’s house – the color, the ambiance, and the designs!

I must admit, I really love the place and now I understand why most of the people I used to ask of the where-to’s in Baguio always recommend this place.

One of the things I loved during my stay this September 2015 was the ambiance of each place of the house. Every part of the house is a good place to relax and feel comfortable.

The Room
The room is also one of the things I love about this place. I wish I have the same style in our house. Rustic and quaint ! I heard the house is owned by an architect which explains why the design is simply captivating.

The Food
Needless to say, the fact that I took photos of the food before eating is really som…

What I Would Say to My 22-year-old Self? After 5 years!

April 4, 2011 College of Engineering, Graduation Day at Bulacan State University
Hey Chad!
How are you? You're already 22 and about to graduate with an engineering degree! Yes, you will no longer study in school. Maybe you'll miss it, maybe, not. As Andre Maurois quoted the great English writer Carlyle, "A man ought to spend the first part of his life conversing with the dead, the second with the living and the third with himself.” and you already finished the first stage of life. Congratulations!

Now, you have an exciting future and career ahead of you. Don't worry too much about the next step. You can do it! Just stay focused. I know by now you're worrying about getting the license. Hey man! You can make it to the list! Trust me!
After that, you will be entering the corporate world. I know you’ve always wanted to be in the IT field and it has always been your passion since you entered college. When you get there, my advice to you is to focus. You have to calm d…
