Merry Christmas

I am indeed blessed for this year have been so fruitful and wonderful! Thank You Lord Jesus! This Christmas season, a line from one Christmas song that says “..and man will live forever because of Christmas day!” always flash on my mind! And indeed, we are forgiven, redeemed and saved because of the birth and resurrection of Jesus!

Here is an outfit I wore in our office Christmas party! Another effortlessly elegant piece is added on my favorite – long skirt with a high slit! Isn’t so elegant?

Lookbook – Romper

I know girls, you would want an elegant and comfortable clothes during dates. Me and Kevin went to a short Yatch Cruise in Manila Bay, and i assume already that it will be very windy. I am glad I found this very elegant colored romper. I just came from fever and colds before we went unto this date so I am not in the mood of wearing too much fancy clothes.. The romper really looks good and really comfortable, and I do not have to worry that my skirt will be blown by the wind and my undergarments will be publicly displayed. Haha.

By the way, I have set up a new blog that will serve as a date diary with Kevin. The detail of our Manila Bay Yatch Cruise will be found there. Hope you will also visit my other blog – loversinthecity.com.

Teleportation: Travel Space in no Time

What would you do if every morning without fail, your bank called to say that 86,400 pesos had been credited to your account? But no balance could be carried over the next day; whatever sum that was not spent could not be saved. Would you use every penny every day? Maybe, the answer in the back of your mind right now is “Syempre naman, sayang!”

Well, that is exactly the case with our time. Every night, when the clock reached 12:00am, 86,400 seconds are deposited in our account. It is ours to do if we will use them or lose them. We can’t save time; we can only spend it. Me, I want to spend it wisely by budgeting my time to different responsibilities and priorities.

This is the principle that I am always pondering every morning. I enthusiastically start my day by committing myself to spend each second with God, self, family, work, hobbies and friends. But there comes circumstances that are inevitable and beyond control that can ruin your plans and even your day; heavy traffic, no more jeep or taxi available to ride on, crowd of commuters, bad weather. I always wish that I can travel from our house to other place in no time like Teleportation.

Though only true in fiction stories, I want to unlock the skill of Teleportation so I can conserve time in commuting, and spend more time with significant things in my life. An hour travel to work can be used to extend my sleep; a thirty minute traffic can be directed to physically spend it with friends like talking them in person or inviting them for a coffee. My boyfriend lives in Cavite, and I live in Quezon City. We are three hours away. Recently, he was injured and cannot walk properly; I wished I can visit him in just a snap of a finger. Thank God he was okay now. But the next time I missed him, I’ll have a KIT KAT® Break and will instantly beside him and take care of him.

Kevin the Commuter

This is Kevin, my boyfriend. He travels 2.5 hours average everyday to go to work. And he travels three hours to see me. I bet, he needs a KitKat Break too.

Wearing Earphone while Commuting is Dangerous

Wearing Earphone while Commuting is Dangerous

I admit, I am a music lover. And whenever I have time, bored or even while doing something, I put my earphone on and listen to my Spotify playlist or Ptr. John Piper’s commentary on Sound Cloud. Our love for music has become a lifestyle that also turned out to be an inseparable daily routine for us. If you look around, you can see people taking a walk, driving, crossing the streets, strolling the mall, or even hanging with friends with their earphones plugged on their ears.

Earphones are good. It is small, lightweight and gives you the opportunity to listen to music, radio, watch movies on your smart phones or ipod without interrupting people around you.  It also blocks sounds around you so you cannot be bothered by sound around and makes you feel disconnected from your surroundings. Big, bold and branded headphones have become a fashion statement now, so people really feel cool wearing it outside.

This morning, I rode a jeepney going to work. In Philippines, jeepney passengers have to pass on the fare of a person beside him/her until it reaches the driver. There is this one girl who nonchalantly hand out her fare to the jeepney driver without even telling where will she be going. The driver kept asking the passengers because the girl gave 100peso bill which needs change. At first, I didn’t notice that it was her. The man beside her tapped and asked her,  she then replied with a small soft voice that nearly couldn’t hear. I realized that she’s wearing an earphone and very occupied.

I realized with that incident the disadvantage of wearing earphone outside or while commuting. Yes, it helps us survive our boredom, but the danger  and nuisance it brings to you and other people out weights your selfish desire for entertainment. The following are I have thought of. You can freely add the cons of wearing earphone thru the comment box below.  Meanwhile, this is Why I will not wear earphone while commuting?

  1. Prone to Accidents – Since earphone pacifies the external sounds (of course aside from the extreme sound honks of trucks or sirens), you will not be aware of the people, vehicles or the situation around you.  You won’t be aware of the emergency vehicles or warning honks of the vehicles. I have read many news that pedestrians were hit by a vehicle because they crossed the streets while not observing or even hear approaching vehicles. Wearing earphone while commuting is DANGEROUS.
  2. Insensitive to People and Surroundings – When someone talks to you, you will either ask them to reiterate it several times. And when you respond, it is either you respond quietly or loudly, because you cannot hear your voice. And like after the writer of this article got a bike accident after intentionally avoiding an earphone-deaf-pedestrian, the pedestrian was not aware what happened or what harm have he caused to others.
  3. Threat of Hearing Loss – Because of the noises outside especially vehicle honks and sirens, you tend to put your music into high volume. Yes, you can hear the sound clearly yet you do not know the damage it creates to your ear. According to this medical write up, “if you can’t hear anything going on around you when listening to headphones, the decibel (sound intensity) level is too high.” MP3s can produce 120 decibels.  And quoting from this site, Noise-induced hearing loss can result from a one-time exposure to a very loud sound (at or above 120 decibels), blast, impulse, or by listening to loud sounds (at or above 85 decibels) over an extended period.

Hope you use your earphones with care! Happy Monday!
