Last Sunday afternoon, after I went back to the church from my dentist appointment, I told Melisa that I was feeling really tired. She told me to sleep but I couldn't as we needed to go home. Aside from that, we also needed to drop by the market to buy our food supplies for the week. So we left at around 6 PM and bought the stuff in the market and head home.
It rained on our way home. And although the cab driver was kind enough to take us straight home (most taxi drivers would complain so we'd cut our trip and just drop by the municipal hall and ride a tricycle from there going home), we were still a little wet with the mist before we were able to get a cab.

This post is a little late but as they say, better late than never. :D
I tried my best to finish all my pending posts for December 2016 first before I start with my 2017 posts. So now that everything is posted, all lights are green for my 2017 posts (and I pray that this year will be a fruitful year for us).
With that, here are our plans and prayers for 2017. These, I will check next year and will be my guide and list of God’s faithfulness to me and my loved ones this year. Lo, here are my prayers and plans this year.

God is great, He gave me what my heart desired. Before we even left for Kid's Camp 2016, I was so convinced that we would go to Mt. Samat Shrine (by hook or by crook). I have a few personal reasons for doing so, one of which is: my youngest sister, mother-in-law, and Nate have never been there yet.

December was such a busy month for all of us. As for me and my family, what made it even busier was the Kid's Camp 2016 that we attended. Most of the camps that our church has are located in our bible school in Bagac, Bataan. Last year, I thought it was about time for Nate to experience his first Kid's Camp.
Kid's Camp 2016
Venue: International Grace Bible Institute (IGBI) - Bataan Campus
Theme: "Batang B.I.D.A. : Batang Bibliya ang Inaaral, Disiplina'y Asahan"
Text: 2 Tim. 2:15
Text: 2 Tim. 2:15
Date: December 27 - 30, 2016
*Estimated delegates: 90
*Estimated adult attendees: 50 (or more)
*(This is just my personal estimate; I don't have the exact count of the attendees during the camp).
1. To enlighten the mind of every child that "Batang BIDA" means a child who learns from the Bible and makes an application out of it.
2. To teach every child some of the Basic Doctrines such as Doctrine of the Bible, Deity of Christ, Redemption and Believer's Walk in simplest form.
3. To turn self-centeredness of every child into Christ-centeredness.
4. To reinforce the interest of every child in studying the Bible.
5. To stimulate discipline in the heart of every child through the principles of the Bible.

This is a late post. Really late. But as they say, better late than never. I’m one of the bloggers who got invited to visit Manang’s Chicken last December, before the busy holidays that is, and got to experience their tasty offers. So yeah, here’s what I can say about Manang’s Chicken in SM City San Mateo.
1. Why “Manang”?
The exact same question I asked when we were there. Obviously, I’ve never tried this resto yet so I got so curious about the name. My question was answered. That chicken and other recipes we were enjoying have been a staple at the owner’s family dining table for the past 20 years (I’m so glad they shared it with us!). Their cook, whom they affectionately called “Manang,” whipped it up for all of their family occasions and nobody ever got enough of it.
