2013 in Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 20,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

MY 2013 LIFE LESSONS

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

“Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.”

Brooks Atkinson

WHAT 2013 TAUGHT ME!

  1. EVERYDAY count your BLESSINGS. You will be HAPPIER.
  2. Every JOB is a SELF-PORTRAIT of the person who does it.  Autograph your work with EXCELLENCE. ~Author Unknown
  3. GOD HELPS those who help THEMSELVES.
  4. Try to LEARN something NEW as you do not know when you will use it.
  5. DON’T put all your EGGS in ONE BASKET – try to have as many as you can.
  6. Pick your FRIENDS wisely as ATTITUDE can be contagious.
  7. DON’T RELY on anyone as NOTHING IN LIFE IS FOREVER.
  8. GIVE AND BE GENEROUS but know your LIMITS.
  9. Learn to say NO to people or they will step over you.
  10. Low self-esteem can destroy your life, build your self-confidence UP.
  11. Lastly, take care of YOURSELF first – listen to your body.

Confidence Quote

Always believe in yourself and hold yourself high. Act confident and you will become one. Own your own uniqueness.

~Jenny Bichara

I wasn’t always confident to tell you the truth.  There was time; I had a very low self-esteem. I even suffered from depression. I did not believe in myself. I did not think I had any God given talents.  But somehow, along the way; I said to myself, enough is enough.  No one can help me but me. I started acting confident. I pretended to be one for a long time.  But deep inside, I was scared.  But eventually, my taught process changed. I started believing. I started thinking positive. When that time came, I felt more peaceful and happier.

Jenny’s Words of Wisdom (Nothing in Life is Permanent)

Jenny Words of Wisdom on Nothing in Life is Permanent

Nothing in life is permanent.  We must all learn to compromise and be adaptable to change. Whether it is personal or it is regarding your professional life, it is imperative to be ready all the time as the world and people can be fickle. Learn a new skill; maximize your creativity as much as possible so when that change comes, you are ready and not scared. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.  Try to have as many baskets as you as you can so when one falls apart, it is easy for you to pick up the pieces.

~ Jenny Bichara

My happy birthday wish!

Happy birthday cake!

I wish myself a very, very, very happy birthday!
No special dinner or party celebration.
Just a simple one night stay in a place I call Shang-rila.
That’s okay, I will be spending some quite time with me, God and nature.
I wish for a very good year to come for me, my family and to all my friends.
And not forgot, to those who have followed, liked, commented and stopped by my blog space. Thank you.
I wish for a year where my initiatives, aspirations, goals and wishes will work out well for me.
I also wish myself to grow and be a better person than I have been for the past years.
And I wish for me to succeed in living a life that fulfills me and my inner growth.
Lastly, I wish I could be partying with you guys in blogosphere.
So sending you a funny Happy Birthday video courtesy of Meryartist . The same from last year.

Alabang Saturday Farmers Market

Earlier this month, I took a break and went to Manila for a change.  I came down specifically to attend my high school reunion in Colegio San Agustin, Makati. The same time spend some time with my batchmates who I have not seen for 24 years. Yes, 24 years. It was a great feeling.  It took me back in time.

I would also like to thank Candy for personally inviting me over and opening her home for me for a couple of days.  Truly grateful and will never forget her kindness.  This was taken the morning of August 10th 2013, she took me to Alabang Saturday Farmers Market for a brunch.

I love weekend markets. They have been a homemaker alternative palenke (market).  You will find the freshest harvest, newly-caught fish, crustaceans and innovative food stuff that ranges from alternative Filipino dishes with a twist to a variety of breads, cakes and pastries.  Yes, even suman and puto.  Oh, one more thing – Lebanese food.  I got myself a Shawarma and the guy even knows my family.

Considering the area, they all come at a considerably lower price.  It’s a quite farmers market, not crowded as the one in Makati. If you are based in Manila or planning to visit one day, come and check them out.
