My LSS: Ellie Goulding's Love Me Like You Do

First time I got news of the release of this song, I checked it on youtube and played it once or twice I guess and quite forgotten about it actually... until I heard recently that a new video for it has been released...
Now it seems I'm really liking it...
Not just because it's part of the OST of FSOG... 
But yeah... maybe entirely because of the scenes in the video haha #sosueme

The Best Microvideos of Pope Francis in the Philippines

What is Vine? I like this site i bumped into since it compiled short vids of Pope Francis' stay in the Philippines... and no it's not really about Vine 

This site is better in its original form than when translated into English #grammarnazi Good thing the videos have captions anyway…
I particularly liked the 2 vids of his zucchetto, 1st being blown away and when Pope Francis grasped it instead the next time…

Oh and his humor too… 

“Do you love me”…  

“Be quiet”

Pope Francis Speeches and Homilies During His Philippine Visit

There were a lot and I mean a lot of memorable quotes from the whole state and pastoral visit of Pope Francis to the Philippines. I still watch the replays of the events whenever I catch them on TV... And am wishing for a DVD of it should one of these TV networks come up with one 😉

And to further reflect on Pope Francis' messages it was a good thing that Rappler compiled all his speeches and homilies - both impromptu and prepared ones (link found at the end of the blog)

And I really do have lots of quotes that made an impact on me but this in particular is very... Honestly surprising to hear 😉

"Real love is about loving and letting yourself be loved. It's harder to let yourself be loved than to love. That is why it is so difficult to come to the perfect love of God. We can love Him but we must let ourselves be loved by Him. Real love is being open to the love that comes to you. The love that surprises us. If you only have information you are not surprised. Love surprises because it opens a dialogue of loving and being loved. God is a God of surprise because He loved us first. God awaits us to surprise us. Let us allow ourselves to be surprised by God. Let us not have a computer psychology that makes us think we know it all. All answers on computers - but no surprises. The challenge of love. God reveals himself through surprises."
- Pope Francis impromptu speech during the meeting with young people in UST

How has/will Pope Francis impacted/influence your life esp after his visit?

As Cardinal Tagle said... Let's reflect and do...

Timeout for Pope Francis' last mass in the Philippines

#PopeFrancisPH #PapalVisitPH #PopeFrancis #BlessedByThePope @youscoop

We walked from Vito Cruz almost until our hotel in UN Avenue (we were able to grab a pedicab halfway)... A lot of other "pilgrims" braving the rains and heading up to Luneta Grandstand...
That was around 1030 am and our checkin is not until 2pm 🙀
so we patiently waited and I secretly hoped we'd get at least a good room...
And thanks that we did get it even if it was from the 12th floor!

Ma told me that even from far away she can at least tell it was the Pope aside from the popemobile, his yellow raincoat is glaringly obvious 😺
Oh and thanks to the TV coverage too we can at least track where the Pope so we were ready to look out our room's window...

Not to mention that we also went down and waited in the crowd, not minding being drenched in the rain while waiting to catch another glimpse - albeit fleetingly - of Pope Francis!
Let me reiterate it as worth being wet to catch a quick glimpse of him in his Jeepmobile! 😸

Thank you Pope Francis for visiting the Philippines!

God bless you!

A room with a view #PopeFrancisPH #PapalVisitPH

Because of the rains and the multitude of people at Luneta, we opted to stay in our room at the Pavillion.
Thank you for this small view of what's happening outside and thanks to TV coverage of course...

Define fleeting glimpse: Pope Francis in the Philippines

#PopeFrancisPH #PapalVisitPH
Me and my mom, we took the chance to see the Pope's motorcade on his way to MOA arena and we took our spot at the intersection of Edsa-Macapagal...
And these screenshots will attest (from my short vidclip he was there so quick)... Hindi ako ang nakakita kay Pope, kungdi yun iPad ko at mga sandamakmak na gadgets! 😜😂😂😂
But it was an overwhelming experience to catch a glimpse of him though fleeting...
We feel blessed by the Pope!

Nicole on Jimmy Fallon - Nakakatawang Nakakakilig!

I can't recall how I came across this video 
aside from the fact that I am subscribed to the show's YT channel, 
but this is seriously AWKWARDLY CUTE! 

In Tagalog nakaka-kilig na nakakatawa!

And I've been viewing it a few more times whenever I get the chance to
and just want to laugh...
