I have a hard time thinking while I am on my way going to a mall.  People are very busy buying things for Christmas.  And I was stuck in the middle of nowhere.

I don't know what to do thinking that our Kababayan are needed most our HELP now.  Feeling of distress and unhappiness. For two years now we celebrated Christmas with too much mourn and tears.  Last year, December 12, 2011 it was SENDONG (Internationally known as WASHI) that hit EAST COAST of MINDANAO and killed 1,268 people.  Now PABLO or popularly known as BOPHA also hit mainly COMVAL and Davao Oriental still located in Mindanao.  This is all NATURAL CALAMITIES that we all fear that makes life miserable.

But it's Christmas time, a wonderful opportunity to share our love with friends and family.
