Are you pregnant again?

I heard Jessica Simpson is pregnant... Again! She gave birth just a few months ago to a baby girl. In the news, she said she is excited to be a mom again.

What do you think about being pregnant after giving birth?

I dread the scenario. I personally think that our body should be given enough time to recuperate from pregnancy stress and the postpartum depression that inevitably comes with it. I wanted to give full attention to my newborn and with another pregnancy along the way, it would divide the attention.

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing. It is a journey of nourishing yourself and the child in your womb but a mother's work doesn't stop at giving birth. It is a continuous process of pouring unconditional love between her and her child.

I survived Managerial Accounting!

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."
- Nelson Mandela

Well, my Managerial Accounting subject is not yet officially over since we still have classes on Saturday and I still have to pass my take home final exam. But, I am pretty sure (my confidence level is at its peak) that I will move on to the next chapter of my MBA... Information Management System.

The moment that I learned that I will have an accounting course, butterflies immediately went fluttering into my stomach. It reminded me of the days when my least liked subject was Accounting 101. Looking back to my experience, the frequent basic accounting I meet everyday at work and the cold and clammy feeling I get while reporting process costing and budgeting... I can say that you can never really escape from your fears. Face your fears. Face them more often until you feel you are not afraid anymore.

Love your enemies

Luke 6:27-28
"But I say to you, who are willing to hear: Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who mistreat you."

1 John 5:14

This is the confidence that we have in our relationship with God: If we ask for anything in agreement with His will, He listens to us.

Farm photography using iPhone 4S and Instagram filters

An old bamboo shoot at the fish pond. I wish I have a macro lens.

The grazing cow. That is the old mango tree along the national road. During harvest season, this field becomes filled with hay bales.

The chicken coop. I wondered what happened to the chickens.

This fish pond. This used to be a rice field.

Nets were placed on top of the pond that will serve its purpose during harvest season.

In My Wishlist: The Photojojo Phone Lens Series

 I am dying to have this Photojojo Phone Lens Series! This set contains three types of lenses--telephoto, fisheye, wide and macro--that fits in most phones. I have an iPhone 4S and these lenses would be great to capture life's precious moments!

The set costs $49 + shipping. I suggest you buy the set for you to save because I bet you'll go gaga taking pictures using any of the lenses that you'll end up buying the rest.

Dear Photojojo, I do hope you'll send me a sample of any of your lenses (but I prefer the wide and macro lens). I swear I will be your number 1 Photojojo advocate in the Philippines!

Photojojo Phone Lens Series at the Photojojo Store!

All Saint's Day photography using iPhone 4S and Instagram filters

How would you like to be remembered?
Just got home from the cemetery. It is All Saint's Day here and we (all of my relatives) went to the mausoleum of our departed loved ones. Today is a special day because it is the only time of the year that we get to be with all our loved ones, both living and dead, in one place. This is also true with other families as well.

I snapped photos of beautiful flowers in the mausoleum and the sunset with some inspirational quotes.
