Ann's Mind

and her mind speaks…….


For my Nanay Deng…

As I wrote my 101 list in 1001 days, one of my to do’s is to:

79. Bring Nanay Candeng to Babelโ€™s House

A woman who is very dear to me. Like a loving mother who care in every ways to make sure that her child is well and safe. Nanay Deng (Candida Torres Agustin) was my auntie, sister of my father and third child of my grand parents was a simple woman who chose to have a simple life.

A life to serve her family in a way she believes to be rewarding and pleasing. She was never a house wife nor a mother of a biological child but she has a lot of children who used to call her “NaNaY”. A mother figure to her nieces and nephews specially to me. It was a claimed that I was her child and she was also my mom too ( I was her no. 1 favorite… ๐Ÿ™‚ peace kuya Ricky and te Marie :-)). She has a part in taking care of me ever since I live my life into this world. I used to share to her the happiness and love I give to my real mom ( I have two moms… ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

On the 22nd day of April year 2010, she passed away. We really thank God, for she did not suffer longer as she approaches death. I will miss the time that I used to impart with her cool and great details happened to my life. Every time I had spacial events, beautiful dress, pretty make-ups (abay, graduation, sagala, etc…), I always make sure that she had a glimpse of how I looked. I used to utter Nay, tingnan mo na ko, ang ganda ko with matching a huge smile on my face”.

I included no. 79 in my 101 list because she didn’t had a chance to hang around and spare moment outside of her fences. She used to be left at home and said “Sige ako nalang ang taong Bahay”. I attempted to ask her to go with us but often times,I did not succeed ๐Ÿ˜ฆ . How I wish she could lived much longer for us to let her experience the vacation, gatherings and get-together.

This post is dedicated to our Nanay Deng, with prayers, flowers,candles and love. May she live peacefully with her Creator. Thank you for all the love and sucrrifices that you have given to the family specially to me.

kita kitz batch ’96….:D

April 17, 2010 was the date, when the event named Kita Kitz Batch ’96 was held. Aย Reunion that was formed to gather all the pips who graduated High School at Dna Trinidad Mendoza Institute, year 1996 (obvious ba? hahahahs… ;-D)

A collaboration of eager ones who shared their minds and ideas to make this possible in just a span of almost 3 months, whoow… :-D. By gathering information, preparing checklist, opening School Year Book, looking for Friends (thru FB and walking “angles” whahaha.. :-D) meetings, and budgeting, everything fell into place. Of course some lapses were noted, but then again the event had brought fun and enjoyment to everyone (we really hope it did… :-O).

Warm acknowledgement to those who helped to make this event a memorable one.

  • Financial Support from batchmates who are more well-off (Out of the Country pips, you know who they are.. :-D)
  • Artistic talent of the lay-out artist
  • Creative minds of the Event Master
  • Supportive people who helped gather more attendees as possible
  • Cute and kind Collectors ๐Ÿ˜€
  • Runners, here, there, and everywhere
  • Understanding Bosses/co-workers who allowed attendees for absent or take leave
  • Dance instructor
  • School Guards and Assistant
  • Free Photographer from the Studio Owner
  • Performers
  • Buffet and Table designers
  • …and All those who shared financial contribution.

For the friendship-links that were re-opened (and re-kindled), having met old friends, for the lasting smiles and laughters (till now), even the pressures that goes along with organizing this… Well, I can proudly say that this EVENT served it purpose…Wheee….:-)

Success!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

and their name is “PoPoYField”

Sort of a Popeye stuff when it was first heard or maybe a huge ground owned by Mang Popoy…nyahahah :-D. Popoyfield, a name being used by a Punk Band from the province of Bulacan (of course we’re Bulakeรฑo too… :-D). As I listened to the stories of the band vocalist (diey), the name was inspired by the former labor group leader Ka Popoy Lagman. He said, he was there at UP (Unibersidad ng Pilipinas) when this man was ambushed (tama ba diey? tama ba?) for the “Field” hha…, eeehhh, hmmm, can’t remember the story behind why they cascaded the word Field…. :-D. Nevertheless this band really shares a unique style in the music industry (wow industry na!!!).

Some to the songs they have written were:…. ๐Ÿ˜€

untouchables, litrato, stufftoys, eltiel, tenksnology, she never, waiting, state funeral, atm, rakstart, days gone by, anymore, wala kana, no vacancy, this time, drink and drive, fading beauty, bahoo, themesong nyo, alkohol, earth saving machine, panaginip, unan, seven stitches rack ,

With a trade mark of having a ” Red Color around the Eye”, original compositions, passion and styles in performing, they would definitely have a chance to be in a more huge stage to share their forte ( wahahaha Concert ito, Libre kami!!!… :-D).

It is so great to know that we have peers who succeed in this field… and That is PopoyField!!!

Way of the cross via old churches of Bulacan

During Lenten Session, Catholic devotees have their ways to reflect and look-in to their relationship with the Creator. One of these ways was the “Station of the Cross”.

Last Holy Wednesday, I was about to join this activity together with my Mom, she reminded of the time and told me not to be late. Of course I told her, “Yep Mama, I’ll be there!” But… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I wasn’t able to make it because of work wheeww… :-(. I missed that wonderful experience. With that, I felt a bit sad, but of course I still have other options… wheee.. ;-D

Today (Holy Thursday) me, and my cousins were scheduled for Visita Iglesia. We were about to visit great churches in Bulacan. We decided to explore the province and its historical religious sites.For some this is being done in 7 churches only but for us, we had 14 of those for 14 station of the cross). With the histories it witnessed, antique relics and images, structural designs and old stones in its wall, it is definitely worth seeing it all.

At this point, I should also start to work on my no. 30 of my 101 list, and its to be in different Churches.

… and as elders says, you are privilege to have wishes for each new church to enter, therefore… wish, wish, wish, and hope it will came true in God’s perfect time… ๐Ÿ˜€
