Happy New Year!

Let's face the year 2012 with great HOPE!  GOD BLESS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Tuesday, December 27


This coming year is a great new year. It signifies a fresh start and a beginning, a pleasant year for everyone to create chapters in life. Though it represents new things, the year 2012 also shows signs of mixed thoughts. It is thought that it would be a year of commotion, a year of reckoning. Perhaps it will be if in this year we won’t let ourselves speak up and be heard.

Why do I need to speak up? There are numbers of reasons why, I need to speak because I want to air my opinions, my complaints about certain issues, my ideas that will somehow solve a problem and things that I believe in. These are just responses in a very small-scale and through a vague perspective of a husband and a Dad. However, the main reason is because I wanted change, for the better and for the good of others.

“I” alone will not be effective enough to be heard, but it is good enough to shatter the single-sided thought of people, cracking their monotonous idea of silence. The “I” needs to be changed to “We” in order to create a clear sound of response and protest. SPEAK UP! ALOUD!
Start to act and stop hiding in comfort zones.
Protect original contents.
Engage in addressing issues and concerns.
Adhere to what you’re fighting for and what you believe in.
Knowledge has always been the right tool in every battle.

Uplift affected people.
Pray for the enlightenment of our thoughts.

Aim for a positive outcome.
Learn and be more sensitive.
Off or zero with negative words and phrases.
Unite clashing thoughts and become a catalyst of change.
Do it right with dignity.

If each and everyone will do this perhaps there will be a clear voice on every issue. Some of those issues are the cyber bullying with Charice Pampangco and Chris Lao, the Campaign Against Child Abuse which I should have much to say something about this because I have been a Child's right activist since I was in college, and the No To Piracy Campaign in which the OPMs are aiming for a better result with the help of bloggers.  There were issues also like the sharing of unverified information or misinformation that made a commotion before by airing an outdated picture, the plagiarism and copyright infringement which is happening in the blogging world, and of course, Environmental issues which are still a concern not only locally but globally.

Technology has been a great tool in speaking up. It defies space and boundaries. Given the fact that most people now are using the internet technology, it is easier and faster to communicate with each other. It is much louder in airing what we are resisting for. SPEAK UP! ALOUD! on Facebook and Twitter.

I’m a Dad and home is where everything start.  As what I have been advocating since college and will always be standing for it, I SPEAK UP for the Campaign Against Child Abuse and for the Care of the Environment! Let your voice be heard, online and offline.

My Son Gelo

It's been seven months now and I haven't blogged about my son Gelo, except for the day he was brought out of this world.  Perhaps now I can write and describe more about my son Gelo.  To start his full name was Gelo Malikha.  At first I wanted him to be called "Malik" for his nickname to make it something different and since my first son also has three names including his nickname also but my wife insisted to call him Gelo.  Maybe he'll get to choose which name he would prefer when he gets older.

My youngest son, Gelo Malikha
His a pre-term baby so it's really hard for him to get sick.  His much prone to get infected if there are other kids who's ill.  That's why just recently he was brought to the hospital because of his near broncho-pneumnia condition.  His pedia did really take care of him.  It was a few days before Christmas and we don't mind spending a big chunk of our finances just to make him well.  Of course some of our friends online and offline send it their help to us and we are very thankful.  The word of THANKS isn't enough for all their help.  Now, our son Gelo is well and we trying keep him healthy specially with weather and climate condition at present.

A Househusband?

Well being the man of the house is not really easy at all.  Who says being a Dad is easy?  The real role of Dads are not only to provide the family needs but its also about being a man who can stand firm for his family no matter what is his state.

Yesterday was the start of the showing of the entries for the Metro Manila Film Festival.  My family were able to witness the long lines on all cinemas.  Too bad our present state couldn't let us watch any of those entries for the MMFF.  How I pray for someone to provide at least four passes for my family for one of any of the movies.  All of the movies were great in their own respective genre but there's one that I can say that being a Daddy blogger I can relate to it.  The title of the movie is "My Househusband: Ikaw Na!"  The movie is about a husband who lost his job and become a househusband.  Quite interesting because of the present state of each family, especially for those who lives in the metro.  In this movie, it's about family relationship that is present in today's generation both husband and wife are working; husband stays in the house and the wife is working; and wife is a bread-winner.

I'm a Daddy blogger who blogs about my experiences with my two sons.  I'm happy that Dads are now being presented as someone who can do things what Moms can do.  Of course don't include the bearing of the child for 9 months and the breast feeding.  That is solely for the Moms and we commend them for that strength and patience.

Perhaps it would be a realization for those who thought that when you're a househusband it means your overpowered by the wife, it is just a matter of circumstances and what's wrong if Dads will do the Mom things. It doesn't make Dads less macho.

Anyway if you want to watch the movie My Househusband just visit the cinemas.  I think they'll be running this movie until next year.  If you watch or have watched it already spare some time to comment here and give a little bit of info but not to the point of telling the whole story.  Just a little something that you have learned in the movie.  Looking forward for you comments...

A Blessed Christmas To All!

Though we were celebrating Christmas with less gifts and goodies, still the spirit of Christmas is up.  We just want to greet everyone a blessed Christmas to all of the readers of this blog and to those also who just happened to pass by and have a peek.



Christ should be the center of this day, gifts are just the end product of our faithfulness to GOD.

Prelude To Our Christmas

A few more days before Christmas and we don't know if we will still have electricity that time.  Our kids' milk cans are already empty.  Telephone bills are also piling up.  We're still praying to the Lord.

This quarter have been very hard for us.  Lots of unwanted events came up and causes us to use most of our resources.  We're at our deepest moment, still we're holding on to the promise of God.

We are thankful because we still have dishes to prepare for the Christmas Eve.  Not much but its well enough to have it with our family together.

A few more days before Christmas...  GOD WILL MAKE A WAY... for us and for the rest of the Filipino people who are affected by Typhoon Sendong.

Crisis In Different Faces

Its been almost a month or a month already since I made my last post here in my life and parenting blog.  Daddy Yashiro has been into some part of a life where the needs and opportunities have been very limited.  Yes, our family is in crisis.  Whatever the crisis we are facing right now are just some of its many faces.

You may have seen me laughing and grinning on every jokes but it is just the facade of everything to hide what is the real situation.   I'm not writing this now to let everyone know the situation but be an inspiration to those who are struggling and experiencing the different faces of crisis. 

Yes, there were times that we are counting every single coins that we have in our pocket.   The saying "hindi mabubuo ang piso kung walang bentesingko!" (A peso will not be complete without the twenty five cents!) is really true, especially now that we are facing one of the crisis in our life.  Be thankful to God for whatever we have is what we always say.  Everything is a blessing and God has a plan for everything.

Recently, our youngest son was brought to the hospital, it was near broncho pneumonia but we are thankful to God that it was given immediate medication.  Of course the hospitalization is not free and we need to raise money for that and we are thankful that God lead us to people that we can talk to and lend some money to us.  Right now our son is in our house already but still taking some medications. 

God has always been faithful to us though there are times that we are not doing our part as a Christian.
