It was one hot Sunday when we left Iligan at 10 AM. I took many sky photos in a 80 kpm moving vehicle. We were off to Cagayan de Oro to send off our week of prayer last week.

When we arrived Cagayan, we had our lunch (last meal together) before proceeding to the airport. Pastor Lowell dropped by for some minutes at the SM mall for dollar exchange then off we went to the airport. On the way, here are some shots:

Fiesta Sale

Today and tomorrow is holiday over at Cagayan de Oro City because of their fiesta.  Some friends invited me over for the celebration but i have to turn down because am afraid i can’t control my appetite.  I need to lose weight so am going to check online the best weight loss pills so that i can have an idea what to tell a friend when she asks for it. I am not yet ready myself but a friend is soon to be ready. 🙂  I wish they are also on sale so that my friend can avail a discount on the rates.

I swear that most of my live years, i hate cats! Just because of one thing.  But when a cat started to stay with us (the she kitty forced us to pet her) i learned to like them.  So when i saw cuttie cat supplies at Jerfferson i just can’t hold but to like this mice and wanted to purchase it and give it to Pacman, the son of the mother cat who forced herself to be our pet cat.

All About This Pic 1

The first time i saw this cute church in a photo, i then mused to myself that one day if ever i have the chance to pass by the place, i would take a shot, too!  In October 2008, I had the chance.  We were travelling from Davao after the MBS2 summit in General Santos.  Luckily i was with great photographers so we stopped by the place.

The church is located on a hilly spot. I could have gone there if it did not rain.  The rain started to fall so we have to run back to the car or else our cameras will be wet.  If it did not rain, i could have made more shots of the place.

The photo looks glum but it’s the weather.

This place is located along the highway the Bukidnon highway going to Davao City.

Annoying Comment

One of my friends here at work often makes comment to another worker. A comment that is ok if being said only one time. But if it is said several times plus it does not sound as good criticism anymore than it’s bad. This friend often commented on the bulging tummy of that other worker. Good thing i found this fat burner online so am going to share this with her so that this other friend will stop her annoying and hurting comment.   If it is done to me, i would be hurt too.   Good thing it is not me although i also have this 24 months preggy look. hahaha.  We should get that fat burner to make us look only 3 months pregnant.

Sunday Stealing – The Now & Then Meme


Today we ripped this meme off a blogger known as Tattooed Minivan Mom from the blog The Scattered Mind of a Tattooed Minivan Mom. She explains that she got it from Janana Bee. It appears Jana might have actually written this meme. But, it could have stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft’s thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!
