there’d be times when you are caught up in a picture-perfect scene and then you’ll realize, “Oh no, i forgot my camera,” these are the times when you don’t have a choice and just have to practice this thing called phoneography (photography using the phone).
well, it ain’t always bad, you only need the eye for art, your phone and of course, your forever loyal and trustworthy legit photo editing apps. (talk about legit apps, for me, that’s afterlight)
With the catastrophe that Yolanda/Haiyan brought to Visayas, countless Filipinos was left with nothing but their dear lives. But also, overwhelming help from all over the world came. For weeks now we’ve witnessed stories of heart tingling heroism, mercy and love. I, for one, wasn’t able to see with my very eyes all that happened, but i feel the effect, nonetheless. Sure, i’ve also had my share of doing what i can to help. But what i experienced in that Friday afternoon of the 23rd of november was life changing.
My school is a catholic school, and we were taught to really become men and women for others, and having said that, in one of our Formation Program subject we were told to volunteer in the relief operations of my school. I thought i’d just be packing goods and other stuff, but to my surprise, the in-charge asked us if we wanted to be roaming around cagayan de oro to “beg” for donations, carrying “tabang visayas” boxes and placards. Of course, we couldn’t say no, so we agreed and excitedly got our boxes, unmindful and clueless about what was to happen that day.
We went from one place to another asking people to drop on our boxes. Sure, it was like a noble thing to do. But as usual, there are people not pleased. More often than not, some would just act as if you weren’t there. I was there, finding myself smiling my biggest smile, shouting and convincing people to “help visayas”, not minding the harsh noon sunlight and still people would just ignore. I would say it was a little bit more humane if they just ignored us, but some even went under the belt and gave off negative comments. Even in the course of our “begging” a street boy came up and played a disrespectful prank with me. I felt so helpless and somehow, attacked.
that very afternoon, i felt like i was in the shoes of the people who seems like the only exit to a starving stomach and a hopeless tomorrow was to beg, forgetting for a moment about this thing called pride and literally helplessly begging. i somehow felt a snippet of that feeling, and being someone who seems to have some things to complain about, i felt so ashamed seeing i was lucky enough.
i felt a deeper sense of even extending the best help i could and even more inspiring people to help them. their experience isn’t easy. and “okay”? they are way too far from that.
as i recalled when every person dropped their money inside that box that i held, people of different walks of life. some i could say has a comfortable state in life, some were students and some were just sidewalk vendors, some gave bills, and some gave a peso, and it didn’t matter to me anymore how much they gave away, i was just too touched to see their eyes and knowing sincerely they wanted to help, really. i realized too that probably, this is how the victims feel like, they wouldn’t matter too much on how much you gave but with the mercy and love that you’ve shown, immeasurable with cash or any worldly thing.
(here are some photos)

You’ve heard the news, and knew the facts, unless you’re living under a rock, it’s impossible for you to not know anything about this.
THE strongest typhoon ever recorded in world history struck the Philippines, sources of living was vanished and so has thousands of dear lives itself. It has, nonetheless, left many of out brothers and sisters devastated.
If it was Jesus Himself, without food, water, clothing and shelter… What would you do? If it was Him who sought for your help, knocked on your hearts, what would you do?
You heard him say, “what you do to the least of my people, you do to me,” and as you reach your helping hand, and convinced that you had to do something, you started to doubt… “Who am i but a mere student? and what could i do? I have nothing, or if i have, i only have too little.”
My friend, i faced that same scenario too. But the Lord reminded me to take every opportunity there is to give the little i have to HIM who gave me everything, including His very life.
"When we choose to give instead of keep, we discover a little taste of heaven here on earth. When we choose to let go of what little we have and surrender it to God, it’s when we receive the bounty of His kingdom." -when god writes your love story by Ludy.
God does not look at the too little or the too big that you gave but on the posture of the heart. Human eyes may not notice your valiant deed. You would even eventually forget about it, but friend, God never would, and one day He will show you how way too far your help went and how too joyous He was when you finally gave in and gave away your “too little”.
find out what way you could help, could it be by giving away your never-to-wear-again clothes, your saved up money, your time to help or even inspiring people to do something too. You may also want to help us fundraising by buying skirts (see previous post).
You are one beautiful lady, and you are surely more than just your selfies or ootd’s. be more beautiful with the new classic addition to your closet, a skater skirt, midi skirt or maxi skirt AND be more beautiful in the inside too, by helping our brothers and sisters who were devastated by the supertyphoon Yolanda.
ALL PROCEEDS will go to the Yolanda victims. (Will be given thru Xavier University, wherein massive fundraising schemes are being done too.)
PLEASE TEXT 09276372891 IF YOU WANT TO HELP (WE WON’T BE ABLE TO CONTACT YOU THROUGH ONLINE THROUGHOUT THE DAY) THANK YOU!

hello!! november kicked started and the sembreak is ending. well, i figured i have the choice whether i look at it negatively and be sad about the break ending, but i could also see it positively knowing that our favorite season is just around the corner and aside from that, school, somehow, has its perks too!
anyway, i was so blessed to be able to enroll fast so i also took the chance of going back here in iligan and spending a few days more with the fambam!

different, that’s how we are made. but it’s just both alarming and sad at the same time that instead of embracing our differences and loving ourselves for how God created us, we tend be like other people, we cheat on other people through our fakeness, and worse, we cheat on ourselves. and in the process of pretending, we lose our self-identity, we miss on the amazing adventure of just being ourselves.
don’t be like the rest of them, darling, you are knitted and molded with your own set of morals, likes, dislikes, and for as long as you don’t compromise in loving other people any less and treating them genuinely, never let anyone get into the way of being “yourself”.
like i said in my prior post, i was hopping from one debut to another. this was the mark of the great test of my clothes-matching and makeup skills (which i am still at super student-mode at)… and well, selfies don’t get forgotten in the check list. *insert monkey emoji covering its face here*
