A Brith and A Burial

Posted On 11:57 PM by nerdluck | 0 points of view

as usual this post is suuuuper late

September 11 goes down in history as the greatest terror attack launched against the US. 9/11, as it is called, will always be remembered as the day that set a chain of events leading to wars, death and devastation. I couldn't care less...

September 11 for me holds a deeper personal meaning. On September 11 of this year, our (my wife and I) lives were forever changed by two persons named Lucille. One Light was born that day, and the other was buried.

Marga Lucille is our 3rd baby... We now have 3 beautiful little girls and the twins are really thrilled and excited about her. She came at a time of radical changes in our lives, some of them good and some otherwise. Whenever I get overwhelmed by the rate of which things around me spin, I stop awhile and share in the peace of mind that my only my three daughters can give me. I no longer fear the future.

Ninang Lucy Caliwanagan sure was a light to us in more ways than one. She had a jolly disposition that could always brighten our day. No trip to the hometown will be complete without passing by Ninang Lucy's house... her dinner table to be exact. A teacher by profession, she was unassuming and never judgemental of our childish angst about our own families. Just being around her makes everything bearable. Now suddenly, we can no longer indulge in her infectious joy. It's time for us to grow up deal with our own relational dilemma's. One thing I will always keep is the memory of her sunny disposition.

Happiness is a choice I am now making for myself. Even the simplest things can be the greatest source of joy. I will be happy because I choose to be...

The Mall Story

Posted On 6:10 PM by nerdluck | 0 points of view

I can't believe i forgot my blogger username... That is why it took me awhile to post something aside from that welcome note... what a way to follow up on that, don't you think... anyway.

I got my new computer last sunday, 11 June and I have a funny story to go with it...

My wife, the twins, my 8 year old nephew, francis, and I went to the newly opened SM Mall of Asia to buy a new computer. The thing is... this mall is supposedly one of the BIGGEST mall in all of asia.. being our first time to be there, we fancied walking around amidst the sea of people who decided to see the mall that very same day. Before we even found the building where they house the multitude of computer stores, I was already beat. So after scouting around for the best deal, we finally picked one package that we particularly liked. Because they will be assembling the computer and installing some components.. The sales guy said it would take a while... A couple of hours at the very least. Already tired from the earlier "swim" at the sea of mallrats, we decided to sit our lazy bums in front of an unopened store beside a Delifrance branch. We were sitting there for a few minutes already when one of the twins fell asleep in my arms. Then HE appeared (actually my wife pointed him out.) Henry Sy, owner of the SM chain of Malls and the Philippines Trillionaire. He was on a wheelchair on his way to DELIFRANCE!!!! and are we sitting on his way? no, I looked at Francis and he was lying on the floor. blocking Henry Sy's path... his numerous bodyguards wasn't he rude guys as I expected them to be... They were actually polite in gesturing for us to give Mr. Sy a clear path.....

Oh well, that is one day at the mall I won't soon forget... Imagine almost being run over by Henry Sy's wheelchair...

Its not what you think it is

I think maybe it is customary to make the first blog entry to be a welcome note. (How would I know, this is my first REAL blogging experience) Also, it would be a great opportunity to introduce myself, the writer. Here goes...

I am nobody special... I'm just an ordinary guy with an ordinary life... I have no special powers that will help make the world a better place. I made this simple blog with a simple purpose... "To record the thoughts that goes through my head while I can still sort them out" that's how i like to call it... basically, my blog will feature anthing that goes on in my brain... it could be a new song, an idea for a page layout, a business concept, a misguided rant against human folly, daydreams or tonights dinner. Some of them will make sense... most of them will be jibberish to you. Either way, I will still write as I desire to. Because, simply put, it's my blog.

Soooooo, without further delay...

WELCOME TO MY BLOG!!!
