When I was a student in Baguio, my Ibaloi friends used to bombard me with Kalanguya or rather 'anti-Kalanguya' jokes. I never was able to hold my own around those nasty jokers. :) So how about this for revenge? Hehehe

Do you have people in your FB friends list who keep sending you long devotionals or news without even having a personal conversation with you ever since you accepted their friend request? I have been receiving a considerable number of chain messages in my private messaging box and today I got so irritated that I started to write a status message on Facebook about it. But then I thought better of it, and so I cut it from there and decided to come and reflect here. This was what I wrote:
"To Whom It May Concern: Please stop forwarding chain messages to my inbox, even ones which you think I might be interested in. It is annoying to see very long copied and pasted stuff from people who don't even bother to say Hello!"
It was a mild rebuke I know but I thought of the bitter taste it might leave some of my friends who would chance at it and how I would be causing the same irritation these chain messages caused in me. Therefore, I decided against it. It is always good for me…
There was a resurrected interest for this song and more than two people were asking for the words so I decided to just try and remember the words and publish it here:

Music by: Norman S. Malcat
Life is not a bore after all When you came to my life Everything for me was all in a clear perspective After I've accepted your gift There's a joy like never before You've turned my fears into strength And I found out there is peace in you.

Now that I'm living for YouI could not understand some of Your plansBut I am assured that whatever happensYou'll be with me all throughout the way. Bridge: I understood you died for me You paid my debt in Calvary I can never repay you For it's your blood that washed all my sins away.
The story behind this song is that, I broke up with my boyfriend at…
