Day 1 of 7-day Gratitude Challenge with myself

Active ako sa Facebook hindi para mag-upload ng selfie or mag-post ng status, kundi maglaro ng Cafeland and Kitchen Scramble ( dahil hindi ako magaling magluto). Pero ngayon, after so many months  nakakapag- post ako sa status part dahil sa mga  tag sa akin.  Actually mas makapal ang mukha ko rito sa blog kaysa Facebook, paano nandoon din yung mga former bosses ko. hehehe. Anyway, I Can’t resist yung 2 tags sa akin ng aking mga Ate Friends who  happen to be both good writers and readers.  Unahin ko na yung 2nd tag sa akin and that’s 7-day Gratitude challenge.

Mechanics/ note of  7-Day Gratitude Challenge

 (translated)  Ilista ang 7 mga kabagayan na you are grateful sa loob ng 7 araw, and i-tag 7 tao para sundin ito. Walang pilitan, puwedeng tumanggi… pero magadang pag-isipan at sumali dahil masaya. 

 Day 1

Bumilang pa ng araw bago ko natugunan ang tag na iyon, pero just the same interested ako na  i-share at analisahin din sa sarili ko kung anu-ano ang ipinagpapasalamat ko at  gaano ako mapagpasalamat sa buhay. Salamat lang ng salamat!

ito ang post ko with some editing

I’m thankful kay Lord

a. for Life – kung wala ako nito wala ring chance to say thank you. I’m weird and my life is not perfect- but whatever background and experiences meron ako- kung di sa mga yun hindi ako ito- hello Hitokirihoshi is Hitokirihoshi (hohoho)

b. strong Nanay – kung hindi siya ganyan baka hindi ako kulot este ganito – i think because of her I’m courageous and thrifty (hohohoho) lady (not yet a woman)

c. for many siblings – they are my real guardians, protectors, supporters, partners, and even FB likers (yohohoho)

d. beautiful este healthy body – i have a passionate heart, idealistic mind, gifted hands, sharp eyes, happy feet, musical ears, native nose, famous hair, golden voice etc (#memasabina)

e. various type of friends – as magical as magic sarap but I’m lucky to have different group of friends. May mga kaibigan ako na outgoing,  introvert, book lover, moms, oldies,  geek, foodie. Siguro may  special sa mga yan, pero nevertheless what’s wonderful is you have people around you with different interests and yet accepting you from what you are.

f. education – if you ask me what is my greatest achievement? Hmm wala pa akong Oscar and Grammy so ito na. And hindi man ako super galing or honor student- happy ako sa pinag-aralan ko at sa buhay- eskuwelahan ko from HS to College.  I consider myself bless na to have education. I’m fully aware how hard and unfortunate para sa iba na makapatapos na pag-aaral. And yung course ko is my choice pa so whatever happens to my life after school-I’m more than happy.

g. for the meaningful people – Daddy Marcelino, Itang Maximo Jacob, Mamang Sylvia, Uncle Tudio, Auntie Sion, Ate Jing-Jing, Fernando Poe Jr., Robin Williams, Rico Yan and Dolphy Quizon. ANo common denominator nila? They are all dead and they touched my life- big or small time”

Tweets of Mind & Heart

habang semi hiatus ako sa hoshilandia.com at panaka-naka with pabugso-bugsong appearance ako dito ay extra active naman ako sa Twitter. Yes my follower (binabasa mo naman ito di ba so pina-follow mo ako), mas nag-e-emote ako sa Twitter kaysa Facebook na ginagawa ko na naman na gaming show dahil nakahanap na ako ng alternative sa defunct cooking apps na Restaurant City – ang Cafeland.

dahil dyan feeling pantas ang hitad na katulad ko na trying hard to post pa in English at supah put ng hashtag to make my tweets nicer. Pero Day & Dong ha, katuwa rin kapag may nagre-retweet kahit di mo know or follower.  And minsan, pina-follow  ka pa nila because of your amazing tweets kahit parang sa hangin mo lang hinugot, ma-error at ahemmm sablay sa grammar. oh well…

#LettingGo is the #key for moving on. Life is too short to focus on one person.

make it a habit to stay #neutral and #objective…at least before taking side. it will keep you ^away^ from harm.

  • facing #financial woes is like facing mountain. it’s gonna be huge for you unless you’re determine to conquer it…by actions

my #friendship is not bound of who or what you hates, it’s about how you relate with me. I’m Happy to have numerous #friends in Life

when it comes to admiration, don’t be like a local #telcom– wrong/no signal. when it comes to #love– wrong send.

I don’t think there’s such thing as #commonsense

  • Saying Hi everytime you see him/her doesn’t mean your flirting, it’s a good gesture #basicinstinct

Why I keep #Sparkbook? to count my blessings when I feel like I’m a #Loser

Why Am I Blogging contest

Opisyal ko na pong isinasara ang

Blog Life Contest!

at nagsimula na pong gumiling, magsalamin at humigop nang mainit na kape ang mga hurado.

change of schedule:

Dahil sa marami-rami ang lumahok sa aking contest/ panawagan ( sobrang pinataba n’yo ang puso ko in a healthier way) na hindi ko po talaga ini-expect, kailangan kong i-adjust ang pagninilay-nilay sa bawat post. Limang araw na bubusisiin ang 21 entries na pasok na pasok sa banga ang sinseridad, kasiyahan, kalaliman at kagandahan.

sa MARCH 7 na po i-announce ang MGA  winners sa Hoshilandia.com. Yes hindi na lang po isa!

Claiming of Prizes

Ang mga mananalo ay i-email or ip-PM ko sa Facebook o i-DM ko sa Twitter ( ayan nilahat ko na halos) kung paano makukuha ang kanilang premyo o paaano ko maipamumudmod (parang dami ano?!) ang kanilang premyo. Siyempre maganda meet-up ‘di ba? Para makita n’yo naman ako ng personal, naks!  Pero  para doon sa nasa malalayong lugar, magkakaroon tayo ng ibang usapan.

ang iba pang detalye at ang mga pasasalamatan ko sa contest na ito ay malalaman ninyo sa mga susunod na araw habang naghihintay tayo kung sino ang winners.

Maraming-maraming salamat sa lahat ng lumahok sa contest/panawagan ko. Ginawa ninyong mas makabuluhan ang aking blog life. Ang ilang comments ninyo ay sini-save ko talaga at malamang mauwi sa scrapbook ko hohoho!

Mabuhay sa ating lahat at happy blogging!

Hoshi’s Blog Resolutions/Goals for 2012

  1. often write interesting, meaningful and quality posts – ang blog ay parang isang malaking quiapo, kailangan ng marami ang guide mo.
  2. avoid rants and spread positive vibes.- may drama na sa telenobela at sa reality shows, huwag mo nang dagdagan sa blog.
  3. visit more blog sites and leave comments – naghahatid ito ng saya sa puso, at botox sa face ng bawat isa.
  4. be active in social media sites apart from facebook and twitter – hindi lang wordpress ang kailangan makaalam na nagba-blog ka
  5. allot time to blog.- may oras para sa lahat pati na ang pagba-blog.
  6. Support/ join advocacy, contests, forums etc of other bloggers – ito ang talagang  active na sosyalan sa blog world.
  7. proofread and edit your blog entries before publishing – isasama ko na ang comment dito.
  8. be healthy – hindi ka makakapag-blog nang mahusay ‘pag kulang ka sa vitamins at essential nutrients.
  9. be active in real world – dahil dito  nakakakuha ng tunay na inspirasyon sa pagsusulat
  10. magka-love life  Love what you do like blogging – kung seryso ka sa kanya, seseryoshin ka rin nito. Ila-like ka rin ng iba.

Tandaan mo ang mga ito Hoshi!
