I had been a teacher for more than a decade already. I taught in the public and private schools alike. At first, I wanted to be a musician or to be get a Bachelor's Degree in Music but something big happened. I took up a Bachelor's Degree in Education because a degree in Music was not available in the college where I enrolled. But I was able to join a college choir and became a Glee Club member for the four years that I was studying. We had been to different places and sang songs to different people or groups. And something big happened to us as members of WNC Glee Club (WNC stands for West Negros College but now it is known as WNU -West Negros University). We were able to join the NAMCYA (National Music Competitions for Young Artists) at CCP Manila, Phil. and won second place nationwide. That was a great experience we have had when I was still in college. Something big for me this year is quite different from the young ones. I had a lot of experiences in the past that made me a better person. I had taken my post graduate studies when I was still working in the Phil. but wasn't able to take the exam because we were led to another phase of life. And that's where we are now, where God leads us. As what I have said, I had experienced "Big Events" (something big) from the past until now that proves the greatness of our God. There's another big event that happened to us recently when we were in the Phil. and I can prove "How Great our God is" you can check the details in my other blog at Miracles Do Happen in my other blog. In connection with this "something big" I joined the biggest blog contest for 2009 entitled "Big Mak Blog Contest" and they have prizes at stake: WHO WILL WIN AND WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?

Last month I started making and preparing lessons for our English Summer Workshop at the center. I kept all my files and records inside the computer. I recorded all the things needed for the workshop such as the lessons for levels 1 and 2, crafts to be done by the students, games, and other English activities. I was shocked last week when I can't open our computer then we asked our manager if we can send it to the shop for check up. It was found out that it has a lot of viruses and the files can't be saved anymore. Sometimes, computers and other technology are helpful to many users but at times it gives stress and hard times. That happens to me today. When I knew that all the files were lost I felt bad. Everything was lost in the computers, all the files were deleted because it can't be fixed anymore and the files cannot be retrieved. I started doing it again for the second time. It's a waste of time and effort but anyway, I've learned a lesson not to use that computer anymore.

Every Sunday we usually attend Thai services. We find it more interesting although we could not fully understand the language. For us it's more fantastic and our sons wanted to go there every Sunday. For a couple of weeks, I'd been craving for a Thai food, they call "Ratna." When we went to the church I was so glad because they prepared the food I was craving the past weeks. It's their custom to prepare food on Sundays, then right after the service, everyone will join the group for lunch. Thai food are really great and spicy of course but tastes good. You will really amazed how they cook with all the spices!
