Countdown to 1st Anniversary Part 4: Love The Ladies Who Blog and THANK them!

Lady BloggerThere’s so much you can get from blogging but the best of them all is friendship!  Imagine exchanging both intellectual and funny nonsense ideas and stories with people you meet in the blogosphere? Simply awesome!

Views and comments from all over the world made me smile. It fascinates me when they search for a certain (key)word or anything, they landed in your blog and they got to see your work. More so if they commented or expressed appreciation.

But there’s this kind of unique happiness.when the ones spending time in your blog are your fellow bloggers who are actually following and reading your posts in spite of the chaos and deadlines within their individual lives – wow! that is heaven!

I have an absolutely unique pack of blogger friends who has always been there making my blogging experience extra awesome.  Check out their works and you will find a vast ocean of entertaining and  informative ideas.  It’s quite a mixture :)

I categorize them on how I perceive them in my own “blog world”.  The link that follows their name are one among my favorites from their blog archives.

Can’t wait for these ladies to update:
  • Gracie/Gracie’s Network - Pocketbook Series and all her sequels (but this is actually tied with Capture the Colour post)
  • Joanne/Joanne’s Blog - Capture the Colour
    I know she’s “kikay and makulet” about everything but I was really amazed how she presented this post. Love it!
They inspire me…
  • Joy/Joy’s Notepad – The "rainbow"
    I like all of Joy’s post but this one really marked in my head. I just read this recently when she commented on my “Rainbow” post.
  • Encourage One Another
They fly me to the moon…
  • Leah/Travel Quest - A Paradise Called Boracay
    In spite of the many magnificent places she has been to there’s a certain pride on how she blog about the Philippine’s beach pride.
  • Mhie/Travelentz - Family Spent New Year in Philippines
    She hops from one place to another but she really expressed that there’s no place like home.
  • TPW/The Pinay Wandere – Q&A: About The Pinay Wanderer
    Knowing something about the person TPW aside from her informative approach on the places she has been to is a cute niche breaker.
You can talk about anything with them:
  • Sam/There’s No Place That Far - The Annual Boston Marathon
    The title is the obvious reason why I like this post and this also marked the beginning of  our friendship via the blogosphere.
  • KM/More Than Sexy - Pardon My Rant
    The sexy KM is ranting ha ha – something new to my eyes. 
The “Girls that I Just Wanna Have Fun”:
I’m just simply happy that they are around…
Joanne/26 with 4 Kids, Rovie/Pinoy Family Man, Nortehanon/Daydream Believer, Irene/I Wright Every New Episode, Lucky Vixen/The Lucky Vixen – The Versatile Blogger Awardees, Krizza/ng My Second Blog - "Home Sweet Home", Anne/Here You'll Find Me,

Missing these ladies…
 Mitch/Ramblings of a Domestic Goddess; Weng Tamayosa Anewor's Sanctuary; Chekeegirl/Sound of Life;  Mayette/Missus Bounty Basket; Dada/The Lucky Dodeng; Mac/Macky's AlleyD' Explorer,Yam/I Explore

and! (drum roll) Here’s the real deadly fabulous ones!
  • ZaiZai/Zai Moonchild - Luwas sa Undas
    Zany fabulous Zai turned into the sweetest son and brother. 
  • Kulapitot - Dear Deo and all her Deo posts
    I find this really entertainingly “uber” funny!
  • Sunny Toast The New LBD
    Almost without words but the shortness says it all. You rock!
THANK YOU! You made my blogging life sooooo AWESOME!

I may have missed some names – my apologies.  I kinda mess up my draft for this and I’m catching a post date so… just visit back and you might find your name here (later).

For the complete series of this posts:

Sunday Poem and Photograph: She Who Loves The Beach

It’s the second week of the new year and the official summer time in tropical Philippines is still two months short and yet all I’m thinking about is the beach. While people were stressing themselves with the holiday rush and parties, I was busy hopping from one beach to another.  I know this sounded weird but as I’ve said on my new year's post , I’m having flighty feet lately and my body has been shouting to spend time with nature specifically to the beach.  But, family and work obligations got in the way during the summer so when I got the chance to take a vacation I grabbed all the opportunities!  The hell I care about the cold December breeze I went beach and island hopping! I even ignore a gorgeous year-end party at the Palace Pool Club and declined other holiday-related invitations. Out of itchiness and longing, I even spent time (and money) to an urban man-made beach in the city.  However, it just worsen the longing rather than it served as a temporary remedy.  The longi

Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children

“this place will break your heart, will make you cry, will make you want to reach out, and will make you feel grateful & thankful, all at the same time…”   They are located at: 1030 Tayuman Street, Tondo, Manila. Their telephone number is (+632) 255-0832 and the contact person is Sister Anselm. I wrote that caption in this same season last year, my first time to visit a place called “Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children”.  I was with a  group of friends along with our respective families.  I could never be thankful enough to our friend Rupert and his family for leading us to this place.  It was not my first time to do a charity visit to an orphanage and I sort of wonder why we were “brief” that this is for special children.  I only realized what that briefing is about when I see for myself how “special” these children are.  I apologize if this may not sound good to some, but the sight of the sick children is heartbreaking.  I tried to look tough and not to
