Mt. Timbak - Scaling the third-highest Peak in Luzon

Scaling Mount Timbak was really such a great experience! Meeting with new folks, be inspired by the locals, sharing insights and laughing over silly jokes with the Conqueror Outdoor Club it was indeed a meaningful and fun experience that I will treasure forever.

What I love in Calaguas Island is its shimmering grains of powder-white sand and its awesome turquoise waters. No doubt, these make me want to go back again!

Dare to Climb a Mountain?

We face a lot of challenges everyday of our lives. Some are easy to handle while some may seem too much for us to take. And as I gradually became fond of climbing lately I realized that Life is.. Life is also a mountain to climb!

From Religiosity to Relationship

I was very sincere in seeking God. But I also saw the reality that my religiosity in church did not carry over to my life at home. I got angry at my nieces and pinched them whenever they touched my things, gave my mom, my ate, a weeks/ or month of silent treatment in rebellion to their strictness, spent hours devouring novels and giving way to my imaginations. I was selfish and self-centered.

Maximize Me

I realized the choices we make determine the flow and ending of our life's story. Many of us finish the race with a sad ending or with a life half-lived. God had our life story already written in the Book of Life even before we were born. His version of our life is the best. Yet, if we do not allow Him to work in us, His story about us might have a different ending -- far different and far less satisfying from what he had in mind.

"Lord enable me to submit to Your plan. Let me enjoy the wonderful life You intended for me as You use the best of me and complete the good work You already began in me".
And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.... Colossians 1:10

No Regrets

I wanted my first serious boyfriend to be the man I would marry. When I finally met the person I had the courage to commit myself to, I was determined to have the ideal courtship. He secured permission from my parents for our courtship, and they kept us accountable.

However, our relationship was challenged by our different principles, different faith and by what I began to sense to be the different directions of our heart. When the apprehension was echoed by my family, I was alarmed, nevertheless, in my pride, I persisted in my relationship with no peace. We're working on the same company. He's 29 and I'm 21 when he proposed to me. But since I had no plans to get settle down, I humbly heeded all the warnings and said "no." My decision shocked him. Soon, I've decided to resigned from my work. When asked to wait for him, I hesitated, I could not maintain a relationship from a distance with a person I was unsure of.

Yet he insisted that he'll wait for me. Thinking that the commitment he was offering was a development from God, our relationship continue. I was in that relationship for 2 years. Until he confesses that he got someone pregnant (sounds like in a movie huh?, but it is true.).

I can't believe what I'm hearing! I was totally shock.  Though he said, if he has to choose over me or the baby it'll be me. That  he don't love the girl that it was just a mistake. >roll eyes< Seriously?!

I am very hurt. :( For several days I could not eat. I was in a states of mind called self denial. Tender grains of rice tasted like small pebbles against my tongue. My eyes were swollen from tears, my voice deeply hushed by sorrow and my heart terribly anguished with His memories.

Although I suffered much from the separation, I heeded God's command to obey Him rather than obey my sinful self or anyone else. I heeded His warnings in His Word about the consequences such decisions would bring about in my life, as well as in the life of my children and my children's children. (if I would still choose to continue the relationship with him) True, it's really painful to say goodbye to someone you don't want to let go, but that decision, giving up the guy for the baby's sake,  gave me insurmountable peace.

My dream to have the "ideal" relationship was shattered. But I believe that what happened was part of my journey with God in forming my character. It was a time to learn new lessons on faith. It was time to give up what I was  holding on to and trust God once again for something better. Words from the Bible, family and friends gave me the courage to move on.

Through this experience, God broke through to me in order to humble me and to value what He was saying through my family, both immediate and spiritual. Some time later, other men came my way. But God's wisdom had warned me not to entertain men who have no fear of the Lord.

It has almost been 3 years. With confidence in God's plan for my life (Rom. 8:28), I can humbly say that I have no regrets.

Roman 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love  him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Google +1 Button to Compete with Facebook 'Like'

Google just announced their new personal recommendation button the Google +1. I guess, this is Google’s direct competitor to Facebook’s ‘Like’ button. ^^

This is a must read to all SEO. Because the NEW SEO is the social vote so this is very important! Adding Google +1 button is really a must to include in all SEO strategy.

Basically, this is how Google +1 button works. If you have a Google account and you are logged in while you are searching on Google you may see search results with recommendations from people you know. Things they shared on Twitter, Flickr, Digg and other social media sites.

Basically, this is how Google +1 button works. If you have a Google account and you are logged in while you are searching on Google you may see search results with recommendations from people you know. Things they shared on Twitter, Flickr, Digg and other social media sites.
“Today we’re enabling you to share recommendations with the world right in Google’s search results. It’s called +1—the digital shorthand for “this is pretty cool.” To recommend something, all you have to do is click +1 on a webpage or ad you find useful. These +1’s will then start appearing in Google’s search results."
The +1 button will appear next to each search result. After pressing the +1 button, you have the option to undo the action immediately. (Just like facebook like button huh!)

For instance, I'm Planning a trip in Calaguas Island, when I do a search, I may now see a +1 from my Bestfriend Calaguas Island hopping next to the result for the happenings in the area. Or if I am looking for 2011 Fashion Clothes, google will show me a +1's from my Top fashion designer schoolmate.

The importance of +1’s is their relevance - you get the right recommendations (because they come from people who matter to you), at the right time (when you are actually looking for information about that topic) and in the right format (your search results).

However, I've just tried now and it's not available yet for websites just for Google Search.  But eventually? I guess, this Google plus one button will surely apply in all blog sites.

Well, this new update really makes it official Social Marketing is real. It will change then the SEO game on Google. Personal votes might be more important than link votes. Google SERPS will get even more personalized than they already are. Also, with personal votes I think the results will be even more different.
