The Seriously Random Question Meme, Part 3


Today we ripped off a blogger known as blogger and blog named PT-LawMom. It is not her first trip to this rodeo, we've victimized her once before, in August 2008. Since it's long we will do it in parts. She does not say where she ripped it. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

To My Papa On Father's Day ( Father's Day 2011)

Dear Papa,

The moment I was born, I knew I'm lucky to have a father like you. Since then and up to now, you never failed to give us your 100% support in our every endeavor. You may not often say how much you really care for us, your children, but with the way you treated us - that explains beyond words. You are always there to provide us with everything that we need. Pa, thank you so much for showing us what a good father really is with all the efforts you've done for us. I couldn't trade you for anything nor anyone else in this world. I love you much Papa Nes.


Skeds Are Too Hectic!

I wasn't able to blog for like more than 10 days. My apologies!
When I got back to my ward assignment, my skeds are too hectic and the tasks are a bit heavier. I have to deal double the effort in my every task, making sure it's way successfully done. I also spend time to rest whenever I get the chance to. At least since yesterday, our hospital census has trimmed down unlike the past few days.

Despite everything, I still won't give up blogging.
Blogging is my life.
Blogging is ME.:D

Sunday Stealing: The Team Jeffie Meme

Please read: We have a bit of a twist to Sunday Stealing this week. We steal from blogs living or dead. It doesn't matter to us. But the meme we stumbled across this week was the last post the man, Jeff, ever posted. It had a preamble from his wife, Amy. She explained he was in a terrible accident and directed people to her Team Jeffie website. We did a bit of searching. What happened to Jeff? We thought we might just go ahead and publish. Yet, wait. That did not seem right. Instead, we decided to find out if Jeff was okay and if his wife minded our theft. We wrote to his wife, Amy asking that question. Amy first wrote:

Bud-


If you point to anything, please point to the Team Jeffie page here on Facebook (facebook.com/teamjeffie) -- if you flip back through the entries from the past six months, you'll begin to get a sense of how horrific these months have been. Especially for the months of December and January, when our only goals were 'survival' and 'eventual consciousness.'


Prior to his accident, Jeff was an extraordinarily gifted engineer. In the past six months, he has relearned to breathe, to talk, to feed himself, to walk. We have learned, much to our astonishment, that if he perseveres with his therapy, there is a good chance that he might resume his engineering work -- not now, not soon, but eventually.


Imagine a man who loves audio work so much that he was back mixing live performances when he still needed a walker, and still struggled to speak clearly all the time. (I should note that his skills survived the accident. It was amazing to see.)


Jeff, his family, his friends, and I have been through a lot. We are very real people going through a horrific life event, and we need genuine support and care, not curious onlookers.


We were extraordinarily introverted before the accident, and the months since have been doubly traumatic -- not only are we going through this, we're having to go through it with zero privacy.


Whatever you say ... please be kind. That's all I can ask.

We wrote her back to say that her words would introduce our meme. Today, please click on her Team Jeffie website. Just say “hi” and wish him well. We're hoping that those of you with the time could also help our new friends Amy and Jeffie. Let them know they've got new friends that care. We hope we've been kind. God bless them. God bless you, our friends!

Bud Weiser


Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!!!


Today we ripped off a blogger named Jeff from the blog Sliding Constant. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Into the Blue: A Beach Getaway with my Bestest Pals :D

Still on the verge of regaining physical strength because of my 3-day Bohol 2011 trip on the first week of March, I was notified a few days after that another anticipated 'escapade' with my bestest pals will be taking place on the 10th of March. This is actually a friend's 'beach treat' who just got home from Kuwait and wants to spend time with us.

Again, it was hurriedly planned out and I took charge of the booking and reservation while their assignment is the food that we will be bringing there. It really took an ample of my time contacting resorts we had on the list. Finally, after getting a 2nd opinion from my other friend, we opted to stay at Blue Waters Beach Resort located in Samal Island and had our reservation.

Last March 10, 2011, off we went to Blue Waters!
A friend who took charge of the food (we got a caterer for this!), along with his wife and his kids, took the alternative route of taking a cab from Davao City to Blue Waters Beach Resort, via ferry (through a barge). One tip: there's no corkage for food if route of entry is through the back entrance, the reason why alternative route was taken. Since our friend wanted to ride a ferry while witnessing the blue waters along Davao to Samal route, we directly went to the ferry terminal. Before we finally stepped on the boat, Blue Waters personnel had to confirm our reservation first by calling the resort itself. While waiting, we took some pics!



After all the verifications, we're good to go!;)
These are the pics taken as we proceed to the jetty and during our boat-ride:




We arrived at the resort past 4.30pm and immediately went to the reception area. The staff is friendly enough to take us to our booked accommodation.;) We got the Garden Room (a big room that can get us all in!), an airconditioned room with private t/b, with 8 double decked beds at 4k/night. Here, take a look at the pics as we got inside:



Leaving our bags behind, we immediately surveyed the place before sunset. We passed through the garden until we get to see what I'd been curious about --> the resort's Infinity Pools facing the ocean!:D The view is really great!




Dinner came next for hungry souls like us!




...and we drank, sang, and danced the night away!:D



The next day, we made most of the time swimming - getting in touch with the pool and the beach!




The entire experience is really superb - just one of the highlights as we celebrate friendship through the years!:D We went home bringing happy memories with us!:D

Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday is a great day to post an awesome picture that “speaks” for itself, no words needed!
