Ariel Wash Your Fear Summit


Fearless Filipinas of Ariel’s Wash Your Fear Summit.

In the recently concluded Ariel Wash Your Fear Summit, Pinays from all walks of life have been given the priviledge to hear other fearless Pinays talk about facing all sorts of fears in life. Hosted by, none other than, the lovely Bianca Gonzalez. Each participant was given one shirt where they could write their personal fears.

To be honest, it was quite an experience for someone like me who have many insecurities in life. Being asked of our greatest fears can be quite daunting as who would be so open to bare their weanesses to the world, right? But it proved to be quite an eye opener for me knowing what most of us fear, is mundane compared to what others do. What struck a cord of consciousness was when peace and development advocate, Amina Rasul, pointed out that their fears while living in one of the most war driven region down south is actually the everyday struggles of surviving.

And I agree. If you happen to live in a chaotic city with wars being waged against your very survival, then there is very much to fear. Makes our common fear of being unaccepted, bullied, or even prejudiced seem like a walk in the park, right?


Now thanks to the summit, I’m able to takeaway the key lesson of being thankful for what I already have. And thanks to the rest of the fearless advocates, I can stand proud and face my own fears much like Ariel’s brand ambassador, Kris Aquino. Learning to live and face people with her life aleays on the stage, we can easily take things one at a time and wash away the stains of life with Ariel.

True enough! Writin our fears on spotless white shirts and seein it washed live and in front of the audience was amazing! No other chemicals were used and they ended up as spotless as if brand new. And I think that is a great lesson of life, yes?


My mom’s grape plant at the veranda


grape plant

This is my mom’s grape plant in front of their house, both my parents love growing plants in their place, they have small open area but use all the spaces they can get to plant fruits and veggies to keep them busy while tending our computer shop beside the house. This grape seedling they bought only last May or June this year at Quezon city Circle is fast growing, look how it twined on the grills of our veranda or terrace window. The plant is very healthy thanks to my dad’s green thumb. 🙂

We can’t wait to have it yield some fruits so we can harvest and eat them, but I think we have to wait up to 2 to 3 years before that 🙁 but we can have banjo picks right now for my eldest son’s guitar instrument for his music lesson.

Our little singer



Looks like my youngest son is the only one inherited the passion for singing from his grandfather, my father. Even as a toddler, he showed some potential and would sing his heart out while in the shower as he grow older, lol but a little shy when we ask him to sing in front of us and he also dances with the latest dance steps he saw while watching television. Maybe when he’s able to read lyrics, he can practice with our videoke machine and oh before I forgot we’re also looking for a bigger speaker with amplifier, and just found this tannoy reveal 402 while searching online. When budget permits we can have one like this as the shop does not have free shipping in our country.

His two siblings are both shy but the eldest also has fancy for dancing, I hope they will pursue these talents as it could improve their self confidence when with other people.
