Hiiiiiii

This will be the first time that I am writing to you. Def not the last. I’ve been thinking about you lately and I hate it. I pray for you always though, but I pray that you stay still and keep on doing what you are doing until I am ready. I am still on the first 2 sentences of 1 Corinthians 13.

Love is patient. Love is kind.

I can’t seem to get to the next part and memorize it. That’s why I do it very slowly. 1-2 sentences of the verse per week phase so that when I memorize, I practice.

You see I’ve been reading a lot and it was hard at first. I’ve recently read Master, Mission, Mate by Ken Graves. It gives joy to my heart ’cause I am confident that you are still on the Mission part like me. I will soon read I Kissed Dating Goodbye by Joshua Harris, because I am kissing dating goodbye for you. (hihihi)

I’m sorry if I wasn’t able to take care of my heart. I was immature and stupid and excited. Oh and I was misguided. Now it’s all different. I’m sure we both believe and trust in the same God, who is forever faithful. The thought of His creative hands writing our love story gives me the goosies (Goosebumps) and now I have a smile I couldn’t wipe off my sun-kissed face (I’m learning how to surf and I got sunburned 🙂

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5,6).

I’d like to tell you more about this next time. For now, let me put all of these here. 🙂

Team Francia Reunited on a Sunday Morning!

I spent my whole Saturday at home being sick. Oh and broke. Haha! But when the opportunity came for free buffet lunch, I was sick no more! 🙂

My sister and room mate Nina went to CCF Makati with me (yeeeyyyy!) So after the 10 AM service, we went to Glorietta immediately. Got a table for 9 and started eating.

Thank you bo-Nina for coming with me! 😀
I was already half way through my plateful of Tempura..

When everybody arrived, we we’re already eating dessert!

Look at the caramel syrup on that cream puff!
Every food we eat we instagram

We have a serious problem with disconnecting with technology. Even my little brothers can’t leave their gadgets at home. Not that I am against it. haha. I guess we just don’t mind. How about you guys? Is it only me or should we impose a “no cellphone or gadget rule during meal time”?

My brother agrees with me. He loves his iTouch too much.
it’s a growing epidemic 🙂

Okay, going back..

Look at my many faces when eating dessert
Beware of this dessert. Does not taste good – *def not a food blogger* Haha

It’s so fun to take candid pictures of my family, ’cause most of the time they don’t mind. They just hate it when I post it online. :p

They’re so mad at me for posting this ’cause mine looks decent. Perks of being the photographer! 😉
Ate Pau (Lui’s classmate), Sisters -Fat, Luisa and Luz
Dad’s, Saisaki & Kamayan – Menu

Aside from the unlimited Tempura and dessert, I enjoy it when the band of this resto serenade you! The birthday girl chose the song Sunday Morning by Maroon 5. Look at my family goofing around singing along with the band 🙂

Sorry if my video is shaky. I’m still learning as a videographer. Haha! Happy birthday DUDAY! 🙂

Weekend Discovery: Angel != Food blogger

Hi July 1st. Oh how time flies so fast.. and so many people know that I’ve been going through a Crossroad. (free promotion for Friday Night Light! :))  This made me very aware and conscious. I was spending more time thinking about what I wanna do and how and why I wanna do it. Or how much more time I want to spend in ministry or how little I want to spend with work (jk!) and I eventually became restless. (even though I wasn’t doing too much. What is tamad? haha)

But He always has a funny way of calling me back. Last Friday, I had the opportunity to Host FNL and work at the same time.Yes! Haha! As lame as it seemed, it taught me so many things. Cause after the breakout with people from FNL and learning that I should stop asking WHY and let God instead.

Lighters!
Enzo imitating my hand gesture. Haha!
No reason to be sad or stressed about work. Cause I have a great God! All pictures taken by Moochie DG!
With photographer Moochie DG!

Still, it is never enough with Him. I am very much loved that though I was trying so hard to evade Him, He calls me hard and loud! So I went to church, for the first time.. in so long, and I had the most amazing time. I have Grace (a friend from FNL) to blame, cause I didn’t wanna ditch her :p

How funny is He? Very much, because the Pastor’s talk revolved around Intimacy with Ministry. The topic that was making my heart very heavy. Oh and it wasn’t the first time that I heard this, a friend from FNL, Enzo, already talked about it.

Fine Lord, Yes Lord! I shall REST, REFLECT, REALIGN and RE-ENGAGE! 🙂

And when you obey, you will be blessed. It’s been a while since Team Francia went out, after church they went to MOA and I met them there.

Meet my sibs! Minus 2 tho! 🙂

They’ve been dying to see Uniqlo but never got the chance before. It didn’t appeal to me that much..even the cheap shirts! I think now that I could always just borrow my siblings’ t-shirts. Haha!

Sisters Luisa and Luz

So I didn’t buy anything and this gave me the chance to choose where we were going to eat! I had to make sure we eat Chinese/Japanese. Close enough! ~ Xin Wang Hongkong Cafe

Drinks first!
My brother Jonel ordered the Iced Lemon Tea while Luz and I enjoyed their Iced HK Yingyong
Pops had Green Iced Tea with Honey *forgot the exact name* haha!
Brother JM had Watermelon Ice
But before JM was able to choose his drink, there was a little drama at the table
And on the other table as well.
We had no idea why he cried which is why Luisa was laughing here
Still crying!
I’m happy with my drink tho!
Hi Pader, thanks for the treat! 🙂
Sticky rice!
Best dish we had!
Fried Dumplings were okay.
Why I can’t be a food blogger – Bamboo rice meals – I already took a buncha bites before I remembered I had to take pics! 🙂
At least I was able to take a picture of the menu. :))

I needed my Hakaw fix. But it arrived last. 😦 And this was a disappointing set of Hakaw (need to search for that tiny shirmp).

Before and after Hakaw Moment! 🙂
I like spicy food and their chili wasn’t spicy at all. I already finished the whole thing and still not spicy! 😦
Bite size Mochi balls! 5 pcs per order.
Dessert made my brother less cranky. Still he wouldn’t smile for a pic!

So to conclude.. I believe that I cannot be a food blogger. ‘Cause I eat first before I realize I need to take pictures of the food. And I took more pictures of myself with my sibs than the food!  Thus Angel != Food Blogger.

My dad’s new kicks are so pretty. 😦 I want one.

Maybe another type of blogger then? :p

Praying for Consistency

When was the last time I was able to post something here? I have several drafts that I couldn’t find the inspiration to finish. Now I have all the inspiration I can get and I am doing this! 🙂

Fast forward to my weekend escapade with one of my best friends from HS. I’ve known this girl a good 11-12 years now. Recent life changing events brought us closer together. As much as we enjoy our childish moments together, we couldn’t deny the fact that it’s so evident how mature we are getting. We talk about life, work, love and our love for our Father alongside other random stuff like reminiscing our HS days. We both needed this trip away from the busy metro. We both learned so much from this trip. We had several charged to experience moments too! (hahaha) Oh, and meet Rini, my dear anak. 🙂

Sisters in Christ forever! ❤ – Unplanned twin outfits!

Since it was her first time to go to Boracay, she wanted to Parasail and Helmet dive.. And of course, her  mother will give what her daughter wants! 🙂

Helmet diving – We saw Nemo & Marlin!!!!
Para sailing – Funniest shot ever!! We asked the Kuyas to let “dip” us and he dragged us! 🙂

If you’ve been to Boracay and you’re tired of the normal scene. You have to go check out Puka Beach. The nicest and peaceful beach in there! It’s just a P150 trike ride away from the main road.

Puka Beach! We went here twice!

Say hello to my “I’m so disappointed I couldn’t dive ’cause there’s too many sea urchin” look HAHA!

😦

Need more time to post-process and edit pics!

Constantly praying for consistency! ❤ I need to find the courage to blog about my testimonies and how lovely life has been! Thank You Lord!

– So long!
