"It's Halloween"

It's Halloween Folks! I am sure everybody has their spooky costume prepared already and getting ready for the party!!! I hope you guys will have a good Halloween party night. Well I am sure most of here are on the kind of Halloween Tradition. To Wear scary or funny costumes, kids bring candy bags and go to nieghbor's houses to collect candies and chocolates. That sounds yummy mmmmmmmm! I told my husband that when I get to Canada I would like to be like the kids and go to neighbors to collect my chocolates during Halloweens, hehehe well maybe it won't be easy for them to guess I'm no kid anymore because I'm too cute, yikes! My hubby just laugh at me, but I will really want my chocolate too. Chocolates! Just hearing that makes me drool and wish so much it happens here too. Can only wish that for now, to also experience a Halloween.

It's Halloween here too in Philippines but people here have more different tradition to do during this days. I know some that are aware and Filipinos here knows the tradition. Soon its going to be November here and 1 and 2 is a special day for us. It's the All Saints Day and The All Souls Day and everybody here is preparing for what we call "UNDAS".

Undas, is a Filipino tradition where Filipinos spend time in cemetery to stay at their dead love one's. It's our way of remembering the people we love, our family, relatives and friends who already left us to join our creator. It is a way to show love and care for them even if they are already dead by bringing candles to lit up, flowers and masses to offer most of all a Prayer for their souls for peace and life everlasting. Undas is like a yearly tasks for all Filipinos. Some prepare for an overnight stay at cemetery, some visit and stay couple of hours and go home and goes back.

Everyone is as excited as having Halloween too since it is one of biggest event in the country. For some families and relatives, it is the day for them to have the family gather back together, like a reunion. To see friends and relatives or family member who has been away from them or from home. Some people who work on the other places spend this time to go home just to visit the lost love one. It brings back happy memories, for them and for their love one. It is really a day that for a while a peaceful cemetery will turn out to be a fun and loud day/night. Families and friends gather around, and they talk and have some fun time together.

Some here too, do the wearing of costumes and some do halloween night at cemetery and some, like this times to be talk about ghost and scary stuff. It's a choice of you of how you will make your "UNDAS" worthwhile but the most important thing for us is the moment of Sprituality. The moment to talk to the loveone you missed, to give prayers and to remember the Good things and memories they have left to us. To everybody and to all celebrating UNDAS, have a spiritual moment with your loveone.

To all Ghost and Scary Character..............

"Reminiscing the Day We Become One"

It's been over a year since we got married. Hmmm maybe exactly a year and 9 months. It seems long now since that day, but how long it was never makes me forget that Day. It will always be the greatest day of all the days in my life. The day when we become one. Husband and Wife.

How is my love before and now? It's as simple as saying, My Love is growing deeper as the days are passing by. I love you more today than yesterday, but it means a lot for me, it says a lot to him. I know my husband feels the same. I can see right in his eyes and I know our love will grow more, for more days, months and years to come and though for now we are still waiting to start a real family life. We still remain as who are we are, and showed love more to each other. The distance never stop us from believing, from hoping, to sharing, to stay happy and stay in LOVE. NO matter what, we will fight for our Love, knowing that someday everything will end for us having each other and to find each self on each other's arms. Anyway's this is another thing to share with you guys and friends. A very special event in our life. Our Wedding Day.

Our Wedding day is something we always remember and never forget and I know all other couples does and feels the same. I would like to share this special moment of my life to you all. For me it was a different, happy, funny and romantic wedding I have had in my life. I always love coming and coming back to this memory. It's not so much of photo but it shows the Love, Happiness, and Fun we had on our Wedding day.... So Everybody sit back and relax....Here we go...


For me that was so great and lovely. A wedding I will truly cherish forever. A happiness to stay always. A person to have beside you in ups and downs. A love to keep in our hearts FOREVER....... Thanks for your time of reading my blog...

I already voted my nominees for this and for everyone who has not yet voted you can go to vote by following this link http://www.new7wonders.com/ ....

It was a really nice moment to have a time to see one of our very own wonders. It was a privilage for me and my husband to go and see and be amaze at this very nice place. It was more ever perfect to be here being with my someone special.

Yes. What I am talking about is the known Chocolate Hills in Bohol. A wonder to see, and experience it's relaxing and breathtaking view from a top of a hill manage by the governtment in Bohol. To view this wonderful place, it only cost you 25 pesos for entrance fee and you can enjoy staring at this amazing hills and it's fresh air that relaxes you. Being on a place like this, makes you feel and think you are in the top of your dreams, where you have enjoyed and be happy having it.

"..,A new Blogger,.."

A new blogger is here, but who is she? Of course she'll need to introduce herself to everyone. It seem so many of you guys are good bloggers here and she wanted to say Hi to all the bloggers. This new blogger is really hoping to meet new friends like lots of friends but lets start knowing her first.

Questioner: So Let us know about you by first telling us who you are?

Jesziel: My name is Jesziel, 20 years young. A young wife and a family oriented woman. I'm presently residing in Cebu Philippines but hopefully soon I will be living in Manitoba Canada with my husband, and to start the family life we have always wanted. I was married last January ,2007 and is now happily married to my husband Trevor LaForrest. I feel so much blessed in my life ever since he came and now I know my life will turn out perfectly and I will be strong enough to face the challenges in my life for I have someone beside me, for my strength, for a love to share..Forever

Questioner: Oh I hope you are having a great marriage life, so what about your self? Stuff about you? Who and what are the qualities of a Jesziel?

Jesziel: ah well I am friendly, an easy outgoing person, sweet, funny, approachable,vulnerable and emotional. A kind of person having lots of dreams. I live and be what my imaginations and dreams are. I tend to imagine good things and do it, to make other's happy as well as my self too. I love to joke and laugh at it. I love exploring things and to learn from it. I am friendly and I always love to meet new friends, though sometimes it made me think there is no true friend since most, I find my friends turn their backs on me, but I still have true friends who never leave me it's my family, parents and most of all my partner, my husband. I know too I will meet a lot of new people and new friends and somehow I know I will meet someone I can call true friend. It's just maybe now, friends are just something that are passing by me, but I know that when someone goes someone new will come. God closes one door but he always open another, so for that someone out there! I hope to meet you soon. I am also a vulnerable and emotional person, I get easily hurt with things, that aren't making me happy, I easily cry from it but I never feel to get mad and hate because of that. I get hurt for sometime but cope from it, because I more want to be a happy person. I think being vulnerable one makes me think I am a weak person and I don't want to look like that to other's specially to my partner and to our kids.
Questioner: How or what are your beliefs in life or things in your Life?

Jesziel: I believe that life should follow us what our savior had in his life. To become good and do good as much as possible, to sacrifice in somethings that we need and want to get, to love your neighbors as yourself, to feel what life has to be, the happy moments, the sad moments, the hardship, most of all to love with no conditions and reasons. I know sometimes because we are just human beings we do wrong things and mistake, and some of it change our life so much, but actually, you can't change the fact you have made mistake like bad mistakes, but you can't be just get of feeling weak or running away from it. The important of having mistakes is to know how to accept it, to face it and be sorry for it. It is where you can find true peace. For me I love my life and that even if we get ups and downs but it just makes us see how our life means. The things we need to learn and how worth things we have and let go. I believe in true love as I have experienced that myself. I believe that life will mean so much, not for the things we have achieve but to what we aspires to. Life will end perfectly with all the happy memories to left to our love ones and to those who know us. It's worth dying and be remembered and never be forgotten in people's heart. It's worth living to love and be love truly and share the love for eternity. There are so many people in this world who don't yet understand or not yet go deeply on their lives. So many who don't see yet the most important things in life or even not believe on it, but for me the most important thing in my life, is when I know how to love and how I learn from it, how I see my self willing to sacrifice for love, how it made me do good things for making someone happy, how it made me feel I am special and I always feel that I can be all the woman in the world, because I have become what I should become.

Questioner: What are the dreams you want to be? To become...

Jesziel: I have so many dreams, but really it never mean something like I want to become professional and powerful. I have simple dreams with me. I like to become a chef but maybe because I wanted to know how to cook. I wanted to write stories too or anything that could inspire someone, but not sure if the writing likes me hehehe but I'll try. But really at this point of my life all I dream about is to become a good wife, a good mother and a good daughter. I am just contented to dream to have a happy and peaceful life. To make my loveones happy, by working hard for them, to cherish them and to show how much I love them. So far that is my greatest dream in my life.

Questioner: Well I think we are knowing enough stuff about you and we hoped to know more of you. So any message for all the other bloggers?
Jesziel: Yes and I want to say that I feel glad to have found this blog site and really have lots of expectations to this site. I hope to meet friends, to learn from their blogs, to share learnings and to explore. I will really be happy to share things about me and my life and my family life, especially the things I will go through and changes I will have as my life goes on. The up's and down's, the happiness and sorrows, in short everything about my life. I do hope too that by this blogging, I will give help and received help like pieces of advices from you guys out there and to have an internet relationship with you all. Nice meeting you all and you are very welcome to send me messages. Thank you....
