Muitos dizem ter uma grande dificuldade para rezar. Isso pode acontecer porque não se prepara o coração para o encontro com Deus. Ao longo do dia se deveria, com muita frequência, elevar o coração a Deus, resistindo à tendência de construir um muro de separação entre a vida ativa e a vida de oração. Esse muro não funciona. Não se tratam de duas vidas diferentes, mas de uma só. Por exemplo, é preciso aproximar-se das pessoas como se aproximaria do Santíssimo Sacramento, oferecer pequenos sacrifícios a Cristo etc.

Sobrang disappointed pa din ako sa nangyari kanina.

Alam kong wala akong karapatang magbigay ng feedback sa nangyari kanina sa UST vs. Ateneo Game 2 dahil hindi ako eksperto sa basketball rules and regulations. Pero kasi MAY MALI TALAGA SA NANGYARI KANINA. 24-second violation daw yun. Pati si Sir Boom Gonzales sabi niya na 24-second violation din yung nangyari kanina, pero anong nangyari? Walang tawag ng referee. Jusko, pati yung nangyari kay Karim kanina. Gumraduate ng wala sa oras. Wala naman siyang ginawang mali sa pagdepensa niya kay Greg. Even the Growling Tigers expressed their opinions about the game earlier.

Melo Afuang was using his girlfriend’s twitter here.

Hay naku, nakakainis lang kasi sobrang effort ng Growling Tigers na habulin yung double digit lead ng Ateneo sa kanila hanggang sa makalamang sila tapos matatalo sila ng ganun-ganun lang?

Pero may Game 3 pa. Sana manalo sila sa Friday. Sabi nga ni Paulo,

Pero best advice pa din yung kay Aljon.

Cheer up, everyone! May game 3 pa. Tiwala lang. Keep calm and cheer Go USTe! :D

Ay oo nga, isisingit ko lang. Nanakawan ng Galaxy 2 at wallet si Tengminator habang nag-papapicture ang mga fans sa kanya. Grabe lang.

Grabe. Sobra pa naman yung pagmamahal ni Jeric sa phone niya kasi lagi niyang binabanggit sa Twitter tapos mananakaw lang. Iba na talaga ang panahon ngayon. Tsk.

GROWLING TIGERS: PUSO. PRIDE. PALABAN. TIWALA. DASAL.

Bakit nga ba mahal na mahal ng mga Tomasino ang Growling Tigers?

Sobrang daming dahilan para maging proud sa kanila. Sobrang daming dahilan para mahalin mo sila.

Unang-una, PUSO. Opo, PUSO. Kasi ramdam na ramdam mo talaga yung pagiging all-out nila sa games nila. Ramdam mo yung pagmamahal nila sa kapwa Tomasino nila kaya nila pinagbubutihan yung bawat laro. Hindi lang sila basta basta laro, hindi lang puro isip eh. Kino-consider talaga nila yung mararamdaman ng Thomasian community. PUSO=PANALO.

Pangalawa, PRIDE. Siyempre, pinapangalagaan nila yung “pangalan” ng UST sa UAAP, esp men’s basketball. Pasok mga yan sa finals last season, gusto nila mangyari ulit ‘yun. This time, gusto nila champion. Iniisip nila kung anong iisipin ng iba sa kanila kaya talagang pinagbubutihan nila.

Pangatlo, PALABAN. Hindi susuko mga Tigre. NEVER. Yan ang gustung-gusto ko sa kanila eh. Ilang beses man nabigo, tumatayo pa din! Alam nating lahat na sobraaaaang daming injuries nangyari sa mga players pero nag-step up yung mga taong kailangang mag-step up. Nawala man ang team captain nang matagal, hindi naging hadlang yun sa pagkapasok sa final four. Nakakaiyak lang yung talagang dinededicate nila mga laro sa “sixth man” nila.

Pang-apat, TIWALA. May tiwala sa Thomasian community ang mga Tigers na susuportahan sila kahit ano man ang mangyari. Ang Thomasina community naman ay nagtitiwala din sa mga Tigers na hinding hindi nila pababayaan yung laro. Tbh, may mga oras na medyo ayun, nawawalan ako ng tiwala sa mga Tigre. Pero as much as possible, winawala ko yung mga doubts sa isip ko. “Kaya nila yan, may tiwala ako sakanila at kay coach Pido.” Yan palagi kong sinasabi sa sarili ko if ever magkaroon ng sayad. Hahaha. Never pa akong naka-miss ng laro ng UST, except for their 2nd game with FEU kasi kasama ko nanay ko that time pero naka-yellow ako at kahit namamasyal kami sa SM nun, yung game iniisip ko at sinasabing panalo yan. Oha? Eh di nanalo.

AT HULI AT PINAKAIMPORTANTE SA LAHAT… DASAL.

Jeric Teng after the game vs ADMU, September 18, 2013.

Paulo Pe after the game vs NU, September 21, 2013.

Aljon Mariano after the game vs NU, September 21, 2013.


GANYAN ANG MGA TIGRE. Hinding hindi nakakalimot sa Panginoon. Once na humingi sila kay Lord, hindi nila makakalimot magpasalamat pagkatapos. Lahat lahat ng mga panalong nakuha ng Tigers at ng Thomasian community noong nakaraan ay alay namin sa Diyos. We’re not in the finals if God didn’t want to. Thank you dear God.

Nakakaproud lang. <3

Last day of fangirl-ing with Forts

February 19

The title speaks for itself. I honestly don’t know what to feel while writing this blog entry. I don’t know if I should be happy because I achieved my Hug-JForts pose, or not because this will be my last blog entry about my fangirl-ing moment with Forts.

So let me start now with this post…

  • After attending my classes, I went to SM Sta. Mesa to meet my friends. I was really annoyed that time, because there’s no J.Co or Sophie’s Mom store in that mall, I really have no idea what to buy for babe, so I ended up buying brownies.
  • We left SM around 1:30 in the afternoon. While we were in the bus, we talked about Forts’ special someone and some random stuff.
  • The game was already ongoing when we arrived at the arena. We sat at back of the ring because there were no vacant seats at the back of the Blackwater bench anymore.
  • During the game, we kept cheering for the Blackwater Sports. This time I wasn’t the only one who kept shouting “Go baby Forts!” Bea was cheering with me.
  • The funny thing is, I was cheering for Forts but my friends were teasing me to Kevin Ferrer! Every time he makes a basket, they were shouting "Go Denisse!” and I was like, “Ano ba! Kay Forts kaya ako!”. And when Kevin dunked the ball, we were all like, “Akin si Ferrer ha! Walang agawan!” But at the end of the day, we shared Kevin Ferrer to each other.
  •  We were all disappointed with the result of the game, Blackwater lost to the Cagayan Rising Suns :(( We were expecting for a Blackwater-NLEX game in the finals pa naman.
  • After the game, we went out of the Arena and waited for Forts, Ferrer etc. While waiting for them, we planned what we’re going to do with the players. Haha!
  •  After an hour of waiting, Kim Kaizen went out and my friend had a photo op with him. After a few minutes, Paulo Pe came out. They had a photo op with him. I didn’t know that I had a photo taken with him, too. I was shocked when I saw our picture. Haha! After having a photo op with Pe, finally, Forts and Ferrer went out! Bea and I had a photo op with Ferrer first then we ran to Forts who was already walking to his car. We gave him the present that we bought then we asked him for a photo op. I was really happy because I achieved my plan! The Hug-JForts pose. Hihi :”> After the solo picture with Kevin and Forts, we asked them for a group picture and luckily, they said yes!

I just wanted to share this very funny convo between my 2 girl at heart friends and Kevin Ferrer.

Byron: Kevin, para sayo.

Then he handed him the cookies that he baked. (That cookies was supposed to be given to Forts or Pe)

Kevin: Thank you!

Rodgie: Aynako! Mag-ingat ka jan!

Then he pointed the cookies.

Kevin: Ay, nye! Sige, sayo na!

HAHAHAHA! You’re so funny, Kevin! :D

  • After having those photo ops, we went back inside the Arena and watched the game between the NLEX and JRU.
  • While watching the game, my heart was beating really fast! I was nervous for the NLEX; they were just up by only 3 points. And during that game, JRU was really good in the 3 point area. Good thing, NLEX won. Kevin Alas played really well.
  • After the game, we waited again for the NLEX players. While waiting for them, we had a photo op with Jake Pascual’s son, Kelvin. Kelvin is so cute! He’s very jolly, game na game sa picture.
  • We had a photo op with Mark Cruz, Borgy Hermida, Oping Sumalinog, Nico Salva and Kevin Alas.
  • Kevin Alas is sooo nice! As well as his dad, Coach Alas. We also asked Coach if we could have a photo op with his youngest son, Kiffer. Kiffer is so cute! But he’s shy with the people around him :( I hope one day I can have a photo op with Sam, too ☺
  • And for the first time after the game, we went straight home.

I really enjoyed this day with my friends but I was a bit sad because this will be the last time that I’m gonna see Jeric Fortuna.

I hope time will fly too fast, because I can’t wait for the next conference.

For now, I will wait for Jeric Fortuna and Jeric Teng’s guesting on GGV. I’m sure  this will be a one helluva fun episode ☺

Os nossos irmãos protestantes insistem em dizer que Maria não é nada diante de Deus. É evidente! Agora o problema é o seguinte, você não é Deus, meu irmãozinho. Meu irmão, você não é Deus, então você não olha para Maria de cima pra baixo. Veja, o protestante que se coloca a olhar para Maria e despreza-lá como um nada, está se colocando na posição de Deus, você tá notando a soberba? Deu pra notar? Não sei se deu pra notar a soberba, o negócio aqui é complicado. Você olha para Maria e diz que Ela é um nada!? Que Deus diga isso! Que Deus, a partir do ponto de vista de Deus, Ele diga isso, isso é perfeitamente justo. Agora, quem é você rapaz? Quem que você pensa que cê é, de olhar para está criatura imensa, magnífica, a mais perfeita de todas criaturas, e dizer que Ela é um nada diante de você? Diante de você Ela é grandiosa! E é por isso que está escrito na Sagrada Escritura que: “As gerações me chamarão de bem-aventurada..” E nós católicos obedecemos a Bíblia, obedecemos a Deus, obedecemos a palavra de Deus, considerando Maria grandiosa… Diante de Deus Maria não é nada, mas diante de nós Ela é muita coisa. Então, saia da sua posição de soberba, pare de brincar de Deus, desça do trono do Altíssimo, sai dai que não te pertence, não é seu, sai do trono, sai dessa soberba e venha aqui entre os mortais, entre os seres humanos para olhar para Maria. Você quer olhar para Maria? Olhe desde do seu lugar rapaz! Você tome vergonha na cara e olhe a partir do seu lugar! Não brinque de Deus, porque quem brincou de Deus é satanás e você sabe que ele está no precipício do inferno, então não brinque de Deus.

Como costumava dizer Santa Teresa d'Ávila, esta vida é como uma noite ruim, numa pousada ruim. Nossa meta definitiva é, verdadeiramente, a eterna casa do Pai. Aqui, somos somente estrangeiros. Por isso São Paulo e Silas, dentro da prisão, mesmo diante da possibilidade da morte, cantavam um hino a Deus (cf. At 16, 25). Eles estavam convictos daquilo que Nossa Senhora também prometera em Lourdes a Santa Bernadette: “Não lhe prometo a felicidade neste mundo, somente no outro”.
