Today includes three intertwined events: Alexa’s “Buwan Ng Wika” presentation, a prayer rally for my persecuted Mayor uncle and my dad’s Birthday. All three of these events overlap around the idea of presence and the power it holds in relationships. I am blessed to have a father who was good at what he did. Whether […]
Hong Kong Disneyland- I’m writing this halfway through what’s going to be our small families first (of many!) out of the country travels. This is also Alexa and Ces’ first vacation abroad. As I write this, a few thoughts are running through my head mostly excitement and nervousness. Excitement because of the itinerary and nervousness […]
Twenty-seven years. That’s how long it’s been since the woman of my dreams was born into this world, and I can’t begin to express just how thankful I am that God brought my wife Ces to be who she is. I wasn’t there when it happened (because I would only be born sixteen days after), […]
If you got married in the last five years, then you’ve probably heard of and even studied Gary Chapman’s “The Five Love Languages.” Me and Ces did, and it was a tremendous help to understanding each other and God’s ultimate plan for marriage.

The other night the family went out for milkshakes and tea. Before heading to a coffeeshop, we passed by a close-by Seven-Eleven because I had promised Alexa gummy worms (Yep! I’m the parent that occasionally lets my daughter eat candy. Guilty as charged.)
I spent 30 straight days a while back intentionally building at least one family memory a day. Some of them were simple while others were a little costly. Some of them were with both my wife, Ces, and daughter, Alex, while some were with one of each of them at a time.
Tonight while at the office, I heard one of Chris Tomlin’s newest songs, “Good, Good Father,” and once again, I was wrecked by the Father’s extravagant love. From the office until I went to the mall, I was just extremely overwhelmed by the idea of God’s love that I later found myself crying while going […]
It was a bright and sunny afternoon, but all I wanted deep down inside was to be in the same dark gloomy room as my wife. I paced back and forth for what seemed like eternity, when it was actually just under thirty minutes. I was sweating and my heart pounding heavily. Might sound like […]
I was going through Youtube, one time, looking for some keynotes and tutorial videos to watch. Then I stumbled upon this amazing video by Bill Hybels. I have to say, that this is the one of a very few Youtube videos that have really transformed the way I do life completely.
