Practical Exams: The first dip on practicing as a clinician

Learning theories and applying them are two different things. The latter takes you to stand from where you’re sitting and move pieces together. That’s the picture of our practical exams which felt nerve-wracking and exciting! It was learning a new dimension where I’m not just a Speech-Language Pathology student but I was there to be a clinician which means exposing myself with what I’ve been taught. Confidence is key they say. Before doing our practicals, I deeply inhaled and thought ‘This was it, here comes the therapist and that’s me’. I felt cringey on the inside because I gotta act out in front of my professors, and interns who served as our patients. 😆 Social skills are important here and I’ve gotta practice more of that haha. Case history taking and administering formal tests were challenging but being there in the exams area had me thinking like I’ve got to do what I gotta do and there’s no turning back. 🙃🤘😆

Moving on! Have you heard of Lucas the Spider??! He’s such a cute spider! ☺️ How I wish all spiders were as cute as him 🤗 I love his big eyes and voice hihi. If you haven’t seen him, go to Lucas’ youtube channel!! *and have yourself re-watch for the nth time*



Also I’ve been recently hooked up with MOMOLAND’s Bboom Bboom. Watch and dance with them. It’s very catchy~



So how was your week? 🙂

I’m grateful to God for the strength he gave me and I would want to share with you what kept me going these past days… on my next post!


Prayer and Fasting 2018

My heart is full and dancing in joy because of God’s great love! For the past five days, our church had an annual Prayer and Fasting – a posture of humility and dependence on God before anything else as the year starts.

“In Christ” is the theme of this year’s Fasting wherein we studied the book of Ephesians. The Book of Ephesians tells of our new identity in Christ and the life we are to live as Christians. It’s amazing how I learned that in Jesus Christ, we are blessed with every spiritual blessing, sons and daughters, chosen, forgiven, lavished with grace and sealed with the Holy Spirit. Who we believe ourselves to be will determine our actions. And this is who we are in Christ – we are loved and victorious thus we can face everyday with a confident and unshaken heart. We’ll encounter hardships this year but because God is with us (Emmanuel), we won’t falter. We hold on in His Word so we can stand firm!

I’m so grateful that I have encountered the Lord for the past five days of Prayer and Fasting ❤ And these encounters will grow as I continue to seek Him everyday!

I’d like to share to you my top 3 faith goals for the year:

  1. Spiritual revival and to experience God anew
  2. Provision for my daily needs (especially in school)
  3. To travel abroad with my family ^_^


Let’s seek Him for the rest of 2018 and be in faith that God hears our prayers! Don’t close your eyes for breakthroughs are coming!


When one is much

I’ll write and doodle down on my journal, watch Sherlock then sleep.

This is the thought I had one night and how hoped I could do all of it in the remaining few hours of the day. They are doable but sometimes they can’t seem to fit and be accomplished in a given time.

The moon and sun are set in place. They rise up and fall asleep, hide behind the clouds then show up and they mark the earth’s seasons. Our activities can be the same. There are those that are meant to be done today or tomorrow at a proper time and place. This is comforting because it means I can enjoy doing my activities and set them one by one without fretting over time. It’s more fulfilling to gradually do one or two activities than scurrying to do so much without the intake of every bit of the moment! 😊

“He made the moon to mark the seasons; the sun knows its time for setting.” -Psalm 104:19


Sakura Unicorn Milkshake

Anything unicorn, rainbow and colorful catches my attention. That’s why I went gaga over Tokyo Bubble Tea’s Sakura Unicorn Milkshake!

I ordered Taro at Tokyo Bubble Tea SM North EDSA. I loved the presentation of the sweet milkshake. It’s topped with ice cream and “unicorn horn” candy which made it really adorable! Plus, the sweet & salty bubble gum taste of the cotton candy cream added flavor to the drink. ❤️

So cute! 😊

2017 Positive Planner

Hello there! Recently, I bought a planner and I’m hyped about it! Yes, even though I knew it was March, I still went for it because my brain can’t take organizing things on its own. 😂

This is the planner that I bought:


2017 Daily Interact Certified Positive Planner

As the name states, positivity and motivation beam off the planner. It includes encouraging quotes, memory verses, featured testimonies, stickers and mini postcards! It’s more interesting  because it has not only personal goals but also spiritual goals pages which would greatly help with and remind me of my growth in God. ❤️ I also like the ‘Savings Goal’ page because I’m urged to save and to know what I am to do with my savings. 😁😆  #GoodStewardship #MoneyGoalz




His Words and promises that are sweeter than honey ^-^


Shade a portion of ’em bamboos each time you achieve your goal!





Yup! These stickers are not part of the planner. Haha. Bought them for design ❤

I really enjoy scribbling down stuff on my planner! It’s a leisure for me and recording my day would remind me of how my 2017 life’s going. 😊 This planner is a tool of encouragement and I’m excited how these pages would slowly be filled with great adventures! 😊





Planner price: 589 pesos (from National Bookstore)

Overlooking the Present

IMG_6391.JPGThere are characters of mine that I would want to improve on – humility, patience, self-control, etc. And that, which I believe, is preceded by change. But then I came to realize that in desiring so much of who I want to be (“the improved Sam”), I tend to overlook the present. I focused on who I could become rather than what I should be doing in being the person I desire to be. My prayer often went “Lord, I pray that I’d be like this and that” or “Please make me like this and that” but it would turn out futile if it’s contrary to my actions because if so, I’ll never be the person who I envision to be. Having a vision of what’s ahead is essential to be able to know your goal and where you’re going. Moreover, identifying what should be changed, having plans on what should be done and having the willingness to change would be more ideal and effective. As I continually see the words written in permanent stains of ink on every page this year has, I pray that I would grow in little and simple ways that would impact my life: to know God by being hungry for His Word and having my devotions every day, to be an excellent student by motivating myself (in passion and in joy) to study, to be a brave person by allowing myself to walk on water and trust God’s character in whatever situation I am in, and to be a lady who pursues God’s heart by letting go of the temporary things for the eternal and by denying every self-will for God’s will. This is possible only by His grace. ❤ Also one thing that God has impressed to me, that no matter how fast people are growing around you and we seemingly feel like being left down the road, every step of ours is different from theirs. God knows what He is doing in our lives and He is at work! What’s most important is learning and enjoying the journey. 🙂
