Last Saturday, my cat disappeared and I never saw him again. At first, I did not think of it. Not knowing that it would be his last day on earth. That morning, he slept on my bed like a baby. I even checked on him if he was alright. That afternoon, I was doing some catch-up with work when he came out from my room and saw him flinched from his long mid-afternoon sleep. That night, he never came back. Usually, I would shake his cat food bottle to signal him to come home to his mother but to no avail, he never showed up. I was a little worried as he always went home and being a house cat, he never wondered far from where I lived.
You see, he was born in my room. I taught him how to use a litter box, and I taught him how to be sweet with Tawas, the other neighbor’s cat who loves to wonder by my home. Every time I would leave the house, he would always welcome me when I came back. I was his mother. I treated like my own. To some, this might be trivial but not to me. He was my world. He was special. He knew when I was happy. He knew when I was sick or down. He knew me inside and out.
On Sunday, I went for a short errand. When I came back, my landlord mentioned seeing a dead cat on the middle of the street that morning. He said he poked it. According to him, he did not recognize the cat. I wished he told me earlier. I could have said my last good-bye and gave him a decent burial. Never saw again. He just never came back.
Never did I anticipate the pain of losing a pet that I cared for since birth. He will be missed. When I get a chance and find a carbon copy of my chubby, sweet, and endearing cat, I will adopt.
Rest in peace MEDYAS! I will always love you.

This is a late Father’s Day post but good news! Another milestone for me. This is my second article I wrote for Pinay.com
This article is about 3 Overseas Filipino dads and their heartwarming stories.
Read more about it here or click the read more link below:
Father’s Day is a celebration honoring all fathers, fatherhood, paternal bonds and the influence of fathers in every society. In the Philippines, Father’s Day is not an official holiday but it is widely observed on the 3rd Sunday of June, which falls on June 15 this year.
Our fathers are as we say, “Ang Ama ay haligi nang tahanan. Siya ay simbolo ng katatagan at katapangan.” The saying means: He is the head of the household. He is the symbol of stability and courage—the foundation of the house.
This Father’s Day, Pinay.com honors all fathers and their sacrifices. We highlight three Pinoy fathers who are away from their family and homeland on this special occasion.

Thank you for the following of this site! I have over 80,470 page views since my very first post on 1/3/2012. It has been a fascinating ride and I thank you all for making this experience so wonderful.
I decided to start Jenny’s Serendipity out of boredom more than two years ago. In the early days of blogging, it started out as a hobby. This is where I forgot my problems, my worries and mostly, my insecurities. I was obsessed with WordPress and the whole world of blogging. I never imagined how much I would enjoy blogging about whatever I came across with.
Truly, my WordPress blog has opened so many doors for me. Now, fast forward two years. WordPress is a platform I use at Work. My skill in WordPress is what’s paying for my roof, my food, my groceries, my little travels and so on. This post won’t be enough on how WordPress helped me on my life — work, personal and emotional well-being.
To say a huge thank you to everyone who has followed the blog, liked my post, sent lovely comments and generally supported me so far, I’m going to give away a bag of goodies soon. Check on my future post, I will be giving away small trinkets of native products from my hometown Bicol, Camarines Sur, Philippines.
Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Art Kardashian fell in love with photography in 2007 with his point-and-shoot camera. Over the years, he upgraded to Nikon DSLR, and currently shoots with D600. He is self-taught and all his work is original. He loves Ansel Adams and his connection with nature.
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence. – Ansel Adams
Landscapes, architecture, cars, cities, mountains and railroads are few things that he likes to photograph. As you can see, he is a city boy in love with nature and everything in life.
Art and I recently reconnected in Facebook…We used to be neighbors in Los Angeles. Talk about blast in the past…I am truly happy for him and would like to dedicate this post to his photography.
Go stop by and like by his Facebook page, check his website out and shop in his store.
