There is no egg in eggplant.
No ham in hamburger.
And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple.
French fries were invited in England.
Boxing rings are square.
A guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor it is a pig.
If the plural of tooth is teeth, should not the plural of phonebooth be phonebeeth?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what the heck does a humanitarian eat??


IT’S A GUY THING = there’s no rational thought pattern connected with it, and you have no chance at all of making it logical.

CAN I HELP WITH DINNER? = why isn’t it already on the table?

IT WOULD TAKE TOO LONG TO EXPLAIN = I have no idea how it works.

THAT’S INTERESTING DEAR = are you still talking?

YOU LOOK TERRIFIC = please don’t try on one more outfit. I’m starving!

WE SHARE THE HOUSEWORK = I make the mess, she cleans them up.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called FAILURE, a loop called CONFUSION, speed bumps called FRIENDS, red lights called ENEMIES, caution lights called FAMILY. You will have flats called JOBS, but if you have a spare called DETERMINATION, an engine called PERSEVERANCE, insurance called FAITH and a driver called GOD, you will make it to a place called SUCCESS.


If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. If he doesn’t, nothing can make him stay.

Never let him know everything, he will use it against you later.

He is a man, nothing more nothing less.

You should never look for someone to complete you, a relationship consists of two whole individuals.

Make him miss you sometimes. When a man always know where you are and know that you’re readily available, he will take you for granted.

A pencil maker told the pencils 5 important lessons. First, everything you do will always leave a mark. Second, you can always correct the mistakes you make. Third, what is important is what is inside you. Fourth, in life you will undergo painful sharpening which will make you a better pencil. And the most important is, in order to be the best pencil you can be, you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the Hand that holds you.

Count your garden by the flowers,
Never by the leaves that fall.
Count your days by golden hours,
Don’t remember clouds at all.
Count your nights by stars, not shadows.
Count your life with smiles, not tears.
And with joy on every birthday,
Count your age by friends, not years.

I used to be a text addict. Whenever I receive a beautiful text quote, I always jot it down. Now, I have my collection of text quotes. Here are some of them:

The perfect person exists only in our dreams. In this life, we have to settle with whoever comes close, someone not perfect, but real.

Go for the person who loves you. It is not wrong to love someone who belongs to someone else. But it is much better to love someone who could also love you in return.

Sometimes we must be hurt in order to grow. Fall in order to know. Lose in order to gain. Coz some lessons are learned best only thru pain.

Trials don’t come to make us fall, but for us to look for God and call. Trials don’t serve as key to hate, but rather doors to greater faith.

Love is the only gold. At the end of our lives, we won’t be judged by how much money or possessions we leave behind. But by the number of lives we’ve touched because of deep and sincere love.

When we were little kids, we couldn’t wait to grow up and fall in love. Now that we’re grown ups, we realize that wounded knees are easier to heal than broken hearts.

Cherish things while you still have them not when they are gone. Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward.

Without Jesus, days are mournday, tearsday, wastesday, thirstday, fightday, shatterday, and sinday. So allow Him to be with you everyday.

It is better to love for a minute and remember it for a lifetime than love for a lifetime but hate every minute of it.

Words and hearts should be handled with care. For words when spoken and hearts when broken, are the hardest things to repair.

The question is, do I have the discipline and determination to use it everyday?

Whenever I go to a grocery store, I never fail to buy this junk food. Hindi kase siya tipid sa cheese unlike ng ibang cheese chips sa market. The chips are generously coated. Kaagaw ko pa nga ang dalawang anak ko sa pagkain nito. But I’m not saying that you should encourage your kids to eat junk food. It’s up to you kung ano yung ipapakain niyo sa kanila. I just want to share this tasty product.

For 2 days now, I haven’t eaten any rice. I am planning to lose weight by not eating rice again. I did it before. Maniniwala ba kayo if I say I haven’t eaten rice for 5 months dati? I’m not kidding. Nagawa ko talaga yun. A friend suggested kase na kung gusto ko raw pumayat, I have to eliminate rice on my diet. At first it was really difficult. What I did was I tried not to eat rice for dinner muna. Then eventually, pati breakfast at lunch wala na rin. I also drank a lot of water. It takes a lot of discipline to follow that kind of diet. Pumayat naman ako. Pero I gained the pounds back when I started eating rice again.
