What I miss doing...in 2010


In retrospect...2010 for me was uneventful
in the sense that
there were a few things that I used to do
which unfortunately I didn't get to do much...

I didn't get to hangout as much and watch the usual gigs...
but I do remember being able to watch Paramore haha

I haven't traveled in a long while...
as my expired passport is proof of
but I do remember this spontaneous trip to Boracay on my birthday!
(didn't need a passport for that for sure! I know! it's been an inside joke in my barkada)

I miss going to my usual home away from home...
the nearest Starbucks! haha
I really used to frequent that place as in weekly!
but not that much last year...
only when it's on my way home or something
but I do remember I was able to avail their latest planner!
so how did that happen?! haha



Seriously now...
What I really miss doing is...
participating in an outreach...
as often as I used to do...



But thanks to my friends
Sitti and her relentless supporters - the Sittizens

who never tire of not just supporting Sitti and her gigs
but also supporting her outreach activities...


I'm so thankful that they are around
to consistently help out the unfortunate ones...
and I make it a point...
as long as I am free...and able to...
I participate in these outreach activities



Sittizens' Outreach for Silid Aralan Foundation
Montalban, Rizal
November 14, 2010

I don't mind missing Pacquiao's game that day
and heading off to this far away place in Rizal...

it was my first time to visit these kids...
















I'm sure they enjoyed the "quiz bee" we had prepared for them
and the many gifts (from sponsors and donors)


I bet they enjoyed that day!



It's OBVIOUS that I ENJOYED TOO!!!


*****


and before the year ended...
as tradition...the Sittizens have their annual Christmas party
with the scholars from Don Bosco Batulao

Being informed of the scheduled date weeks before,
I was really excited and wanted to join...
I checked my schedule and I was free that day...
but one thing led to another...
AND I ALMOST WASN'T ABLE TO GO
(yet again!)

Now I thank Divine Providence!...
that I was able to go...finally!

Sittizens' Annual Christmas Party
at Don Bosco Batulao
December 18, 2010


One thing that I like whenever we go visit the place,
is that we get to squeeze in a short recollection...



and after being amazed by the scholars' presentation...


we went back to the main venue


for more fun and
sharing of talents...








AND!

aside from the Sittizens visitng the scholars that day
(I forgot that) the Las PiƱas Boys Choir
were joining us too!




The scholars enjoyed being sung to by one of the best choirs in the country!
If only I had a camcorder that day or a recorder!
Gosh! goosebumps!
They are so good!

Even if I had to cut short my visit with them
and run back to Manila a little earlier than planned..


I just bet that these kids...
are so grateful for the many blessings
they received that day...




Define...gratifying...
Those 2 events of last year was IT for me!
