    GOODBYE 2017…

    It’s already normal for people to post on social media their highlights for the outgoing year as another year fast approaches. In the Millenial setting, mostly photos of travels, significant learnings, events, and other things that went through that passing year. Similarly, they also somehow place their goals for the upcoming year. May it be lose weight, save money, travel the world, etc. There’s nothing wrong with it actually. Anyone can list down which they consider a significant change in their lives in order to gauge how much have they achieved and how far they still have to go in order to reach their dreams. Therefore, I don’t quite understand…

    MARVEL ZANE – vol. 4

    Christmas just came last Monday and the start of another year is fast approaching. For Filipinos like my wife and I, it’s like the longest season of the year. As soon as what we call the “Ber” months starts (September, October, November, December), we start counting the days before Christmas. Buildings and houses are decorated with dazzling lights and colorful lanterns; various parties are being organized and; sumptuous feasts are being prepared at every place where it is being celebrated.  Gifts are also being given and like the usual, my wife and I received only few clothes given by some of our relatives. Adulting huh? LOL! Well, it doesn’t end on…

    WAIT thing

    Our church just started a series for the Christmas season and Pastor Nolan, our pastor, had a sermon that everyone hates (even him… LOL!). Something about waiting. Dreadful right? My wife and I think so too. Who wanted to wait anyway? The questions “why can’t we have it now?” or “how long will it take?” suddenly pop up into our minds. Sundays are rest days for most of us (for my wife and I at least). People would either spend the day resting at home, going to church or to the mall. Well, my wife and I may not have went to the mall but we did went to church then rested at…

    MARVEL ZANE – vol. 2

    Days have passed since my wife Quennie and I came home from our holiday trip to Taiwan (technically not a holiday) and poof… we’re already in Sydney, Australia. Our few days in Manila were dedicated to packing up for an 8-day trip and myself working again (for two days.. LOL). I thank the LORD that we’ll spend less here especially that our finances kinda ran out during our previous trip. It was my parents and my youngest sister whom are originally planning to go here but decided to tag us along. Even though I’m not fond of depending on my parents especially that I’m married, for the love of travelling, I gave…

    MARVEL ZANE – vol. 1

    Instead of hitting the roads and just go somewhere this long weekend, my wife Quennie and I decided to stay at home. Slept at more than half of our Saturday and Sunday, we can’t figure out where to go. We’re originally planning to visit Quennie’s hometown in Lobo, Batangas but the pain from my surgery to remove my impacted wisdom tooth last Friday seems to be taking toll on me. Also, the dentist who performed the surgery advised that I should avoid doing long drives as the open wound needs time for healing. There’s also a battle if we should be going to church or not. So here I am;…
