grabe! ang sarao kasama nung mga bata! kakababa lang namin from iba... lahat kami paos. 3 days of bonding, games, singing, eating! haha! non-stop fellowship ito! :D

next up: sports fellowship at youth jam 2!

today is my sister's 11th birthday. :)

***

kaninang bago mag tanghali, nasunugan ang ilan sa mga batang "inaalagaan" ko sa simbahan. magkakamag anak sila at nakatira sa isang compound mga sampung kilometro mula sa bahay namin. dikit dikit ang mga bahay nila kaya mabilis kumalat ang apoy. makitid ang mga eskinita sa lugar nila kaya nahirapan pumasok ang mga bumbero. walang natira sa mga kagamitan nila.

nang narinig ko ang balita, dali dali akong dumalaw kasama ang pastor namin. nakita ko ang mga kaibigan ko, yung isa, nangingitim ang damit at walang tsinelas. yung isa naman, mugto ang mata kasama ang mga pinsan niya. ang natira na lang sa kanila ay ang mga damit na suot nila. wala na raw iba.

masaya na kami na walang namatay sa sunog. ang totoo niyan, meron ... si enzo, ang aso ng kaibigan kong si olan. nakuha pa naming magtawanan kasi si enzo ay dapat na ia- arranged marriage namin sa aso kong si pepper. kaya lang, hindi ata sila "made for each other."

nagtext at tumawag ako sa iba pa naming mga kasama sa simbahan. sinabi ko ang mga kinakailangan ng mga nasunugan: damit, sapatos at pagkain. dali-dali din silang nag commit na magdadala ng kung anuman ang kaya nilang ibigay. kasalukuyang nag-iipon ng mga "relief goods" ang mga kasamahan ko sa simbahan mismo.

nakakapanlumo. lalo na nung nakita ko yung mga bahay nilang abo na lang ang natira. hindi maiiwasang itanong sa sarili kung bakit pinayagan ng Diyos ito mangyari. (permissive will)

buti na lang at mas kilala ko na Siya. buti na lang din at walang dinadalang galit ang mga bata sa Diyos ngayon. buti na lang matagal nang napaliwanag na di porque't anak ka ng Diyos ay hindi ka makakaranas ng hirap at pasakit. tignan mo nga ang nangyari kay Hesus.

buti na lang wala na kaming attachment sa mga bagay ng mundong ito. kundi ibang klaseng hinayang ang mararamdaman nila sa pagkawala ng mga bagay na minahal nila. buti na lang wala na silang pagmamahal sa mga bagay na mabibili ng pera, at maiiwan lang sa mundo kapag namatay ka na. kasi sigurado na sila sa patutunguhan nila pagtapos ng kamatayan.

pinagdadasal na lang namin ngayon ang pag akyat namin sa zambales sa lingo. sana makasama pa rin sila. para masiyahan man lang sila at para maging matingkad na larawan sila ng tunay na ligaya.

kanina ibang klase ang mga ngiti sa mukha ng mga "alaga" ko. Halata. Na nasa puso na nila si Kristo.

ANTHEM

(Another Day-Mojofly)

I think I'll go home now
it's been the greatest day
thank you for shedding life to my fantasy
throw me a wicked smile
the one like yesterday
that threw me up and away to the evergreen
like a spiral staircase
down i go losing every step
i sense an earthquake I.L.U.
don't even know how to say
when will it break today is gone
but tomorrow will be okay
i'll wait another day

morning awakes me i need a special plan
this very simple task i cannot overcome
hundreds of streets i roamed
in search for the perfect line
nothing i've found good enough for a boy like you
why i can never let you go
so strange extraordinary
why i can never tell you so
i must be dumb
why i can never let this go
can't stop this fun it must be done

naninibago ako.

walang ministry update na gagawin, walang bulletin na tatapusin, walang planner na aayusin. weird.

feeling ko asa destiny ko talaga ang zambales. nung bata ako yun yung adopted probinsya namin. tapos lagi kami andun dahil sa yacht club member si lolo. tapos si manong taga zambales. tapos ang camp sa zambales.

i love zambales!

i want to go swimming!

i'm crazy!

sige na popost na ko uli!

clarification: i am Pat, and i do work in the Inquirer. but i am not Pat Evangelista. this is not Pat Evangelista's blog ... this is Patricia de Leon's blog. i do write for the Inquirer but i dont have my own column. i am a slave of the Inquirer Badminton Monthly and Business Features. i write about trade fairs and badminton products, not my reflections and thoughts on ... things.

and... this Pat is going to the beach! finally, a longer-than-a-day break from life in Makati! i am so excited to be going back to Zambales to be with the same people. i don't mind that manong's not coming with us... oh no wait, i do. but since i really cant do anything more about it ( i already talked to his boss, his boss told him to go on vacation, he chose not to), i'll just enjoy the sun, the sand, the surf and the company minus the distraction that is him.

i'll concentrate on that some other time.

***
it's been almost 2 weeks since my bone doctor told me to take a short break from badminton (a 2 week break!). i, apparently, have acquired patellar tendonitis or Jumper's Knee, from all the running and jumping that i do c/o my favorite sport. it's been a struggle not playing. Before the diagnosis, Tuesday and Thursday mornings have been exclusively for badminton; now my mini-hiatus has almost driven me crazy.

But at least, i've found time to do other things. I've gone on that long-delayed trip to the book store, had that much-postponed alone lunch and caught up with friend Diana for my once-a-month Starbuckstravaganza. Next week, i'm back on the badminton trail... i can't wait.

***
but! it's really the beach for me! oh wow, i can't wait to feel the sand under my feet... i'm a beach freak, i know.

i hope they have those massages there. i've been planning to have a real good massage ever since i started work. unfortunately, i haven't had the time, or the guts to spend money. oo na kuripot na kung kuripot...

and a tan! i need a tan badly! i've never been this white in my life... ang puti -puti ko na! while to some that may be the answer to a life-long dream, to me it's not. i love beautiful morena skin, especially cause i never seem to be able to have it. no matter how long i stay under the san, i never get dark enough. i just get redder and redder and redder. my skin just hurts, it doesn't brown.

and staying up NOT because of breaking news, but because of interesting conversations with friends. and a bonfire. and seafood. and stargazing.

next time na yung "and manong."

I LOVE SUMMER!!!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

What about me?

business reporter who hates math. ate to two biological siblings and numerous adopted ones. in love with ice cream and ampalaya (NOT taken together). soul at rest. badly in need of a trip to the beach.
